Two Of World’s Most Victimized Countries Of Radical Islamic Terror Join Hands

Two of the world’s most victimized nations of radical Islamic terrorism joined hands this week, as India Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Jerusalem and signed agreements regarding agriculture and space.

India and Israel first established diplomatic relations in 1992.

Modi also met with young Moshe Holtzberg, who was two-years old when his father and pregnant mother, along with four others, were murdered by Muslim terrorists at a Chabad Center in Mumbai  in 2008. Moshe Holtzberg was saved by his Indian nanny, Sandra Samuel. She was later treated as a heroine in Israel where she settled with him after the attack.

The two leaders issued a joint statement. In it, they noted that they represented two cradles of civilizations that have nurtured their respective heritages over the centuries; agreed that the two countries will become close partners in development, technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, defence and security; would jointly establish a “Strategic Partnership in Water and Agriculture” focusing on water conservation, waste-water treatment and its reuse for agriculture, desalination, water utility reforms, and the cleaning of the Ganges and other rivers using advanced water technologies.

Israel also promised to help promote commercially viable business models involving Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs); the provision of quality planting material; and the transfer of post-harvest technical know-how and market linkages involving the private sector through PPP, B2B & other models.

The two leaders espoused greater collaboration in the field of start-ups; India invited Israel to be the “Partner Country” for the annual Technology Summit to be held in India in 2018; both countries agreed to support joint research and development projects in areas of health care’

Joint development of defense products will include transfer of technology from Israel; the two countries agreed to jointly work on cyber-security.

But the most important cooperation stressed might have been on combating terrorism.

Significantly, Modi showed no interest in visiting Ramallah or meeting Palestinian leaders.
