The Chief Minister of India’s Maharashtra state, Devendra Fadnavis, on Tuesday invited Israel to send a delegation to the region, saying the state could really use Israel’s agricultural technology.

“We invite Israel & it’s delegation for technologies for drip irrigation, agri-equipments, post-harvest technology,etc as my state needs it,” he posted on Twitter, adding, “We not only want to import technologies but also want to manufacture it in Maharashtra.”

Fadnavis arrived in Israel on Sunday for a four-day visit.

    “Is it racist to criticize the Palestinians as the world’s most tiresome cry-babies, with a bogus cause, and a plight that is entirely self-inflicted?

    …I see the Palestinian cause as a lie; a lie designed to exploit Western liberal guilt…”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “Every concession Israel makes is met with more demands, and more excuses not to negotiate; they [the Palestinians] could have had peace ten times over if they wanted it, but they [the Palestinians] don’t want peace, they want victory, and they won’t be happy until Israel is wiped from the map.”

    “I no longer believe that the Israelis should give back Jerusalem…

    Experience has taught us that the Islamic mentality views ANY concession as weakness to be exploited further. And besides, too many so-called Palestinians seem less concerned with peace and freedom, than with driving Jews into the sea, so the bombings would not stop.”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “The truth is that Jews have contributed more to humanity than any other group of people; way more than Muslims, vastly more than Muslims…”

    “Irrational Islamic Jew-hatred is the root cause of the problem in the Middle East.”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “It is often said, because it is true, that if the Arabs laid down their weapons, there would be peace, but if the Jews laid down their weapons, they would be massacred, because the Arabs, the Muslims Arabs for all you hair-splitters out there, don’t want peace, they want the Jews dead.”
