India is one of the last true friends of the blood-drinking Jews. Ostensibly, this is because of various economic deals they have, but the reality is that they have these deals because India feels close to Israel in that they are anti-Moslem.
The Modi government especially is anti-Moslem. That’s really a big part of the national identity, for presumably very obvious reasons. I don’t think anyone can blame Hindus for being suspicious of Islam, given the history, but that has led to this buddy-buddy thing with Israel that doesn’t benefit anyone.
But at some point, it’s too much.
The population of India and probably people in the party itself are realizing that India can’t get caught out being the only country standing with the Jews.
Speaking at the BRICS+ summit on Tuesday, Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar reiterated New Delhi’s position on the conflict in Gaza, which has led to a humanitarian catastrophe involving thousands of civilian deaths and the massive displacement of people.
While he stated that there should be no compromise on terrorism, referring to Hamas’ October 7 attack, he stressed that the conflict is causing “immense human suffering, including to civilians, elderly, women and children,” and called for steps that would make “a difference on the ground,” paving the way for “lasting solutions” to the decades-old Israel-Palestine conflict.
“We welcome all efforts of the international community towards de-escalation. Right now, there is an urgent need to ensure that humanitarian aid and relief effectively and safely reach the population of Gaza. It is also imperative that all hostages are released,” Jaishankar said at the virtual meeting.
However, he also stated that “the immediate crisis” was triggered by Hamas’ “terrorist attack.”
“Where terrorism itself is concerned, none of us should or can compromise with it. Hostage taking is equally unacceptable and cannot be condoned,” the top diplomat said.
At the South Africa-hosted summit, New Delhi also emphasized that the “concerns of the Palestinian people” must be addressed in a sustainable manner, which can only happen through a two-state solution “based on peaceful co-existence.” New Delhi has historically advocated the two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Notably, after Hamas launched its attack on southern Israel, killing around 1,200 people and taking over 200 hostages, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first world leaders to unequivocally condemn the incident as an act of terrorism.
It wasn’t terrorism, by the way.
This thing where the weaker side is terrorists and the most militarily advanced side are good because their military is more advanced is stupid.
Hamas killed civilians, Israel kills a lot more civilians, but Hamas are terrorists and Israel was just doing a military operation? It doesn’t make sense.
