Sanghism and Zionism are natural allies. You can find Israeli Jews who are sympathetic to the plight of Palestinians, but you will never find a Hindutvawadi shedding a tear for these unfortunate souls.
Have you been appointed the dhobi to wash all the dirty Muslim linen in this forum?
>> "It is you who carry out smear campaigns, not me. For years, you carried out a smear campaign against Narendra Modi...."
That is public affairs or politics and I was not alone doing it. The Congress, the Communists and thousands if not millions of citizens are convinced that Modi has escaped justice so far. But you have been telling lies and distortions about me and trying to smear me, attributing things to me which I had never said and misquoting some of my previous comments. You seem to be doing that every time you are close to losing an argument. It seems being a hero to your backers in this forum is more important to you than the truth!
U-turn at Geneva may erode goodwill for Modi
The message that India gave in Geneva is as clear as it can get to the rest of the world. Indian governments don’t respect contracts, made legally by previous democratic governments. We are not trustworthy business partners. That puts political and economic risk at the highest ratings. You don’t have to like it, but you cannot do business, or trade without trust that everyone will honour their contracts in good faith. Would any customer trust a business that has a track record of reneging on its legal contracts?
>> "Chauvinism and regressive education is not something new. That is one of the reasons why ISIS has so many takers in India."
Good of you to compare ISIS with Dinanath Batra's movement. It is good to be against both.
Congratulations to all Indian winners in Glasgow! Great show!
Like the change they made in Gujarat in the Lok Ayukta appointment process!!! Sly foxes!
Brazil withdraws ambassador from Tel Aviv
Brazil's Ministry of External Affairs, the Itamaraty, issued a note Wednesday evening saying it viewed the "escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine" as "unacceptable," and that Brazil "strongly condemns the disproportionate use of force by Israel in the Gaza Strip." The note said Brazil's ambassador in Tel Aviv, Henrique Pinto, had been recalled. (World Bulletin / News Desk)
> "Israel provoked this bloodshed by its massive arrest campaign of over 500 Hamas supporters in the West Bank and the killing of several unarmed civilians there after the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli settlers. Israel's security services knew they were dead from the beginning, and knew this was the act of a rogue cell, NOT ordered by Hamas, but its government cynically hid these facts in service of a hysterical propaganda campaign to justify an attack on Gaza. When Hamas did not rise to the bait, and exerted efforts to halt the firing of rockets by smaller groups in Gaza, Israel escalated by killing several Hamas militants, provoking the desired response of rockets fired at Israel."
Israel's subterfuge was matched by its propaganda, but this time it did not succeed as well as during previous battles because there is an increasing suspicion in the West of Israel's motives.
>> "Israel's aim in all of this was to keep the Palestinians weak, divided and under control, which is an overriding objective for a government that intends to maintain permanent control of all the occupied territories, as Netanyahu himself revealed in an interview two weeks ago. This objective was endangered by the beginnings of an inter-Palestinian reconciliation, and the formation of a national unity government, accepted by the US and the EU. Once the operation started, Israel discovered that Hamas had greater rocket capabilities and a more extensive tunnel system than it had suspected, thus leading to an extensive ground campaign that shows no signs of ending."
Israel's divide and rule policy got a jolt with the inter-Palestinian reconciliation agreement. It had to act!
Israelis look ridiculous when they try to show themselves as better than those "terrorists" Hamas. The ruling Likkud party's major component is the former Herut party of the former Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who himself was a terrorist who blew up the King David Hotel in 1946. Netanyahu's government has extremist coalition partners, e.g. the Jewish Home Party and others, who do not only work for continued expansion of occupation but do not want any Palestinians living in Palestine.
That is actually the real point. If the original community's link with the language is an arbitrary link then why doubt a "western" scholar like Wendy Doniger being way more Sanskrit literate than some of these mindless desi fans. It's not her fault..(and you can't have it both ways), for the difficulty they have with swallowing her presence seems to have to do a lot with the feeling of 'an ashuddh woman (with opinions)'..
It is very tough to remove caste from Sanskrit, linguistic science may make claims that will work in a laboratory, practical world tells us something different.
