India and Israel are two top targets for Islamic terror and have been through history. Theirs is an important alliance and together they will do great things. This is a new era in the fight for freedom in the region. For decades, the Indian government has kept its distance from Israel, for fear of its large Muslim minority and its dependence on oil. But Indian Prime Minister Modi is a visionary, and under his courageous and historic leadership, the two sides have come together and embraced a closer relationship.
I will be running a series of article by the noted thinker, Hugh Fitzgerald, on this historic alliance starting tomorrow. Check the Geller Report daily or better yet, subscribe, it’s free and its news the media won’t cover.
First Time Ever at UN: India Votes with Israel Against Terror-Linked Group
For the first time ever, India voted last week with Israel at the United Nations against granting observer status to a Palestinian human-rights organization named “Shahed.”
The motion at the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) was rejected on June 6 by a 28-14 vote.
“Thank you #India for standing with @IsraelinUN and rejecting the request of terrorist organization “Shahed” to obtain the status of an observer in #UN. Together we will continue to act against terrorist organizations that intend to harm,” tweeted Maya Kadosh, deputy chief of mission at the Israel Embassy in India.
Kadosh told ThePrint that Shahed is connected to the terrorist groups Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
“This is a good sign … India was the first country to support us among the Asia group, so we are very happy,” she said.

“This is a truly historic vote. By taking a principled stand at the United Nations, India has finally broken a voting pattern reminiscent of the Cold War era,” Vijeta Uniyal, founder of Indians for Israel, told JNS. “In my opinion, the position taken today by Prime Minister [Narendra] Modi’s government finally reflects the long held of wishes and attitudes of the Indian people.”
