Israel President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday expressed support to India on countering terrorism, saying that “terror is terror is terror… nothing can justify terror.” The visiting President made the remark after talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi here.

Sources said Modi is likely to visit Israel next year for the 25th-year celebrations of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Rivlin said, “Israel and India are threatened by terror because we uphold the values of freedom. Terror is terror is terror is terror.”

Modi, on his part, said, “We recognise that terrorism is a global challenge, knows no boundaries and has extensive links with other forms of organised crime.”

Without naming Pakistan, the PM said, “Regrettably, one of the countries of its origin and spread is in India’s neighbourhood… we agreed that the international community must act with resolve and determination against terror networks and states that harbour them. Failure to act and silence of speech only encourages the terrorists.”

As Modi made a strong pitch for Israel’s participation in the Make in India campaign, Rivlin said, “Israel is ready to answer the Prime Minister’s call — we are ready to ‘Make in India’ and make with India. Israeli companies can tie up with Indian flagship programmes like Make in India.”

Regarding partnership in defence, Modi said, “We noted the strength of our growing defence partnership. And agreed on the need to make it more broad-based through production and manufacturing partnerships.” In recent years, Israel has emerged as a major supplier of defence equipment and Delhi now wants the products to be manufactured in India.

Modi also said India was grateful to Israel for its clear support to India’s permanent candidature in a reformed UN Security Council. He said the two countries agreed to promote educational exchange as well as enhance people-to-people contact through greater cultural and tourism linkages.

India and Israel inked two agreements in the field of water resources management and agriculture. They were signed following delegation-level talks between Modi and the visiting President.

Rivlin said, “Israel and India have changed history before, and it is time to do it again… this is not just a partnership, it is a partnership which is making a difference, in the water we drink, food we we eat, technology we use.” He also extended an invitation to Modi to visit Israel, which is likely to take place next year at the celebration of 25 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The Israeli President met his Indian counterpart Pranab Mukherjee and Vice-President Hamid Ansari. Rivlin was also given a ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

    :”The conspirators and killers of MK hi were all Chitpavan hailing from Pune to which BG Talik belonged. It is these ChipavanBrahmins who started India’s first Brahminical terrorist party called the RSS. The discovery of the more deadly Brahaminical terrorist outfit called the Abhinav Bharat, headed by a serving Indian Army Officer, Lt. Col. Purohit, now in jail for many terrorist killings along with his gang, further strengthen our theory. Lt. Col. Purohit has admitted visiting the Zionist Israel and getting its full support – with funds and arms – to kill Muslims.

      As the Jews were already engaged in fighting Muslims in the newly created Israel – a British gift of Palestine which historically belonged to Arabs – the “Jews of India (Brahmins)” approached their cousins in this fight against the common enemy. Since then the “Jews of India” have further tightened the embrace of their cousins and secured all the support to enslave the original inhabitants of India.

        The Genome Research Journal (May 8, 2001) reported that the upper caste Brahmin Hindus have common traits with the Jewish people – such as the caste superiority (racism) and ethnically the great majority of both Brahmins and Jews is rooted in Khazar tribes of Asia.

          V.T. Rajshekar, editor fortnightly Dalit Voice, Bangalore (India) wrote: “India’s Brahminical rulers called the “Jews of India”, being blood brothers of the Jews, are in tight embrace to fight their latest enemies Islam. Israel fears attack from the nuclear armed Iran. India’s 2% Brahmins cannot survive without war and violence which are their staple diet.

              After 3000 years, brahmins are reestablishing their relationship. It is now an acceptable theory that's brahmins are nothing but Jews of India. They share same traits, macring indigenous potions. In fact Jews are many time since better than Jews of India. It is unfortunate that they have to bear the Holocaust instead of brahmins. Instead of jews brahmins should have been holocausted.

                  Being a muslim i cant help feel isolated even in my own country...dia is my country and love it dearly and would sacrifice my life for it but i feel India doesnt feel the same way towards me when it comes to Israel. They would drop me in some kind of conspiracy or hold me for sediation charges or even worse use some pellet gun to blind me to show the general public that our society is very tolerant but its far from the truth and every Indian knows that and would otherwise be lying if they said otherwise.

                              Mr if you are a terrorist you need to worry, if you are throwing stones at the army or police you need to worry about pellet guns. If you are a honest law abiding citizen you do not need to worry for anything. stan a Muslim country is in love with with Muslim haters of China and stanise love China, Just think rationally.

                                Modi is big terrorist and it is laughable that these two biggest terrorist countries talk about fighting terrorism.

                                  Modi is uneducated Hindu nationalist like his followers. He is begging Israel for more weapons, while lying about 'Make in India'.

                                    Israel is India's friend and should not be taken for granted by that I mean use them when needed and then abandon them when licking up to a few Arab countries what Israel does in its neighbourhood to defend its right to exist is not any of India's business and they must show rock fast support for Israel just like Israel has supported India in difficult times. In the the present times you cannot be neutral but need to stand by your friends

                                        Shah, what type of reactions from the Muslim community in India you expect? Let me break a news to you - 99 percent of the Muslims in India are Indians (illegal Bangladeshis are not included here). And hence, they are proud to be Indians and to be in India. They love India. They love peace. They contributes toward national peace. They hate terrorism. And, stan is a terrorist banana country. Hence, Muslims in India hate stan. That is why you don't see the Muslims in India reacting in your expected lines. Through their silence they expressed their reaction - their reaction is against terrorism. Hope you get it.
