ISREAL- INDIA a comparisonPosted: June 9, 2010
Isreal and Palastene, i have never learnt the history of both these places, nor i am interested, but from recent political debates and news i thought i should discuss some thoughts about it here..
Isreal is a small nation which i guess is smaller than the largest state in India.
Country : isreal
major religion : 77% jews
As am writing this i am studying the history of isreal as well.. Ok what i read is that isreal was a culmination of the zionist movement, whose aim was a homeland for jews scattered all over the world. In 1948 they achieved a jewish state..
Not going deep into history lets go to the present, what do we normally hear about isreal from political circles. If you know it or not kerala is the only state which protested by a 3 hour hartal when saddam hussain was hanged. So it might be clear to you that what they will bark on isreal, common terms that we hear about isreal from the mouths of marxists is that they are A TERROR NATION, killers of POOR muslims. The tone will get shrill when election bells rings.
May be because i think just reverse of what these political parties think, or may be because i am a proud hindu nationalist (extremist, some call so) i've started to love isreali patriotism. Earlier this month, newspapers were full of anti isreali editorials, somewhere between the lines, i saw these words : " we will do anything for the protection of our citizens ". The words were from non other than isreali pm. Hearing these words may have not surprised the citizens of isreal, but it would certainly surprise people like us who see PM and the ruling parties always talking about minorities. Our PM Would never dare to say such words. Why?
Its high time that india realise, it has the same kinds of boundaries like isreal, if they have 7o pc jews, we are 7o pc hindus, they r surrounded by islamic nations, we too are , they have to fight separatist islamic groups, we too have. But only difference is their government is as much patriotic as their people, but neither our govt nor majority of us do not care for ourselves. A small nation like isreal do not fear even america, they are ever vigilant against the islamic terror groups,they are religious too and are proud in what they belong.
What about us? We are 7th largest country, nods at everything US say, alwys vigilant to condemn the annual terror attacks, and too much secular that we fear of losing vote bank if we attack terror camps in enemy country.
Remembering veer savarkar patriotic words and dreaming it echoes with every hindus :
"if any one tries to shackle her, we shall defend her with our life "
