Just like Wendy Dongdinger, the asshole Michael Witzel, who is a bosom buddy and a student of Dongdinger, has made up his entire career peddling utter horseshit (all of which has been refuted by SN Balagangadhara and De Roover) in the name of "indology". If you hear some asshole claiming he is an "indologist", be assured that is an ignorant horse's arse peddling horse manure, as would be expected from a horse's arse.

"That study will not stand as new research emerges. "

So proclaims anwaar and it shall be decreed as true.

Utter bullshit -- there is no new research going on along these lines. The H Pylorii study was pretty conclusive. Rest of Anwaar's crap is utter nonsense -- these "aryan" theories are based on linguistics and not genetics and are pretty useless in determining the direction of migration unlike genetic studies. For example, anwaar here will not be able to pull a single reference about these "new research' that he is bullshtting about.

Romila Thapar based most of her crappy theory like the other asshole Michael Witzel on utterly dubious interpretations of archeological artefacts and ridiculous interpretations of ancient writings. And we have anwaar pulling all that bullshit and trying to attribute it to SN Balagangadhara.

Ram Lala,

>> By this logic, the genocidal wars waged between Sunni and Shia or between Catholics and Protestants had nothing to do with religion either?"

The Shia-Sunni conflict is a political conflict, not a religious one. Ask any Shia or Sunni! For a professional hate pracharak, how come you are so ignorant?

D.L.Narayan,

>>>> "While talking of American complicity we must not forget that without Saudi Arabia's tacit support for Israeli aggression, Israel would have been less ferocious in its attack. Hamas is allied with Iran. Both Saudi Arabia and Egypt have blessed Israeli actions."

>> "We must not forget that CAIR, an American civil rights body has close ties with Hamas."

What does that have to do with what I had said? Are you and Ramki one and the same person?

>>>> "For him, “Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas are pretty much the same."

>> "False. While Fatah, to which Abbas belongs, has rejected violence, Hamas is a terrorist outfit which refuses to recognise the right of Israel to exist."

Read the paragraph: "As Israeli analyst Noam Sheizaf points out, Netanyahu is opposed to a peace deal of any kind. For him, “Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas are pretty much the same. Any gain by either one of them is a loss to Israel".” Do you understand now?

"Last week, the principal Palestinian Authority religious leader, the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, presented the killing of Jews by Muslims as a religious Islamic goal. At an event celebrating the 47th anniversary of the founding of Fatah, he cited the Hadith (Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad) saying that the Hour of Resurrection will not come until Muslims fight the Jews and kill them:
"The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
Then the stones or trees will call:
'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'"

....

The years of PA promotion of killing Jews and PA religious leaders' citing this Hadith to justify it, may have contributed to the high acceptance of it in PA society. A poll sponsored by the Israel Project last year found that 73% of Palestinians "believe" this Hadith. [July 2011, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner.]"

http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=6098

But according to our CAIR pracharak, the fight between Israelis and Palestinians is not a religious problem, and only ISIS and a few extremists know about this infamous hadith!

Let me anticipate what the CAIR pracharak will say - the poll was sponsored by an Israeli group so we cannot trust the numbers.

D.L.Narayan,

>> "An intercontinental team of researchers has established that “people all over India have common genetic traits and origin."

That study will not stand as new research emerges. For example, there is a paper published in 2009 in "Nature" titled "Reconstructing Indian population history" which says, "India has been underrepresented in genome-wide surveys of human variation. We analyse 25 diverse groups in India to provide strong evidence for two ancient populations, genetically divergent, that are ancestral to most Indians today. One, the 'Ancestral North Indians' (ANI), is genetically close to Middle Easterners, Central Asians, and Europeans, whereas the other, the 'Ancestral South Indians' (ASI), is as distinct from ANI and East Asians as they are from each other. By introducing methods that can estimate ancestry without accurate ancestral populations, we show that ANI ancestry ranges from 39–71% in most Indian groups, and is higher in traditionally upper caste and Indo-European speakers".

www.nature.com/nature/journal/v461/n7263/abs/nature08365.html


Let us also look at the politics of this issue (sumarized in Wiki):

Witzel traces the "indigenous Aryan" idea to the writings of Golwalkar and Savarkar. Golwalkar denied any immigration of "Aryans" to the subcontinent, stressing that all Hindus have always been "children of the soil", a notion Witzel compares to the blood and soil mysticism of Golwalkar's Nazi contemporaries. Since these ideas emerged on the brink of the internationalist and socially oriented Nehru-Gandhi government, they lay dormant for several decades, and only rose to prominence in the 1980s in conjunction with the relativist revisionism, most of the revisionist literature being published by the firms Voice of Dharma and Aditya Prakashan.

Bergunder likewise identifies Golwalkar as the originator of the "Indigenous Aryans" notion, and Goel's Voice of India as the instrument of its rise to notability:


The Aryan migration theory at first played no particular argumentative role in Hindu nationalism. This impression of indifference changed, however, with Madhev Sadashiv Golwalkar, who from 1940 until his death was leader of the extremist paramilitary organization the Rashtriya Svayamsevak Sangh (RSS). In contrast to many other of their openly offensive teachings, the Hindu nationalists did not seek to keep the question of the Aryan migration out of public discourses or to modify it; rather, efforts were made to help the theory of the indigenousness of the Hindus achieve public recognition. For this the initiative of the publisher Sita Ram Goel (b. 1921) was decisive.

Kerry is a born loser, as is his govt's thinking and its very basic approach to the middle east. The outcome of this is foregone: none of the parties he is talking to and thinks he is "influencing", give a crap about US diplomacy and its well published failures of the past.

Kerry should as well go home and beat up Russia on the Malaysian plane disaster. He is simply out of his league in the middle east.

Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is dominated by socialist babus who think they work for China and Russia rather than India. It will take time for Modi to clean up this stink and while that is going on, his govt. should not yield on the macro-level foreign policies and should be very clear minded to support India's steadfast friends.  And Israel is foremost among them.

It is also gratifying to know that Israel is overlooking some of the frequent stupidity displayed by MEA, and is instead stressing on strong nation-to-nation relationship.  Hopefully, Modi will soon prevail and remove the periodic ambiguity that besets that relationship now.

D.L.Narayan,

>> "Let me rephrase. Are they good Muslims?"

Are you a good Hindu when you lie, smear people and then try to be too clever by half? They are not good citizens, By the way there is no excommunication in Islam, but many Islamic leaders have said that those who kill innocent civilians, especially women and children, and those who become suicide bombers, cannot be considered true Muslims. Your attempt to extrapolate that to those who chant pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans just shows how vicious anf malicious you are.
