Four of India’s top naval warships docked in Haifa this week as part of a four-day visit to Israel to “strengthen service-to-service linkages” and celebrate 20 years of diplomatic ties, the Economic Times reported.

The warships, which are equipped with advanced electronic sensors and missile systems, show “the importance India attaches to the growing Indo-Israeli relations, and continued cooperation and engagement between the two countries is expected to grow,” Indian officials said.

Indian sailors will also pay their respects at a memorial of Indian soldiers who died fighting for Allied forces during the liberation of Haifa from Ottoman rule in World War I. Stories of the Indian soldiers’ bravery were recently included in Haifa’s school curriculum.

  • Most affirmative reading just as prejudice and slander towards Israel is piled up. Besides consistent military build-up, it is a prerogative that world Jewry knows its allies and true friends. Do not be exclusive here, we cannot afford it. Some political parties – which benevolent adheres of anti-Zionist sentiments in certain member states of the European Union steadfast call extreme right-wing parties – are, in fact, in the middle of the political spectrum. Some of these parties utter explicitly support for Israel. Some of them even analyze the political situation in the Middle East correct down to details with illumination of the Islamists sinister agenda towards the Jewish State.
    Quite a few countries are in more or less the same situation as Israel. Suffering from bullying rogue states is also India (from Pakistan), South Sudan (from North Sudan), and Taiwan (from China), South Korea (from North); not to speak about bullying substantial Muslim minorities in North America, the various member states of EU, and even Russia.
    True friends are hard to find, but we ought to know them, when they seldom appear.
