The contrast in style and approach between the two leaders to cement a stronger Indo-Israeli partnership couldn't be starker. While President Pranab Mukherjee saw pluralism of India and Israel as the strength of their respective society, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu tried to make common cause between the two countries as victims of "Islamic terror" to unitedly fight the scourge of terrorism.

Roger Waters, co-founder of Pink Floyd, got into an argument with American singer Dionne Warwick who is slated to perform in Tel Aviv later in May. 

Waters has been outspoken about Middle Eastern politics and pledged his support to the Gaza Freedom March in 2011. Back then he had said, "You can attack Israeli policy without being anti-Jewish ... It's like saying if you criticise the US policy you are being anti-Christian. I'm critical of the Israeli policy of occupying Palestinian land and their policy of building settlements, which is entirely illegal under international law, and also of ghettoising the people whose land they are building on ... It's that foreign policy I'm against. It's nothing to do with the religion."

Google Play released a game called Bomb Gaza which has since created a controversy and has been marked by widespread protests.

The game invites players to "drop bombs and avoid killing civilians". It has reportedly been downloaded upto 1,000 times, and continues to be available despite negative reviews.

 

 

"Disgusting. It would be interesting how Larry Page and Sergey Brin, both advocates of the Google mantra ' dont be evil ' and the other people in charge of applications respond. Google should not only give a very public apology but divert some of their billions to help those helpless innocents in Gaza," writes Yunus Patel on the Google Play review page.

Another game on similar lines, Gaza Assault: Code Red, asks players to "take control of an Israeli UAV equipped with powerful weapons in an attempt to secure the region!"
