How an Israel(USA)-Iran Conflict Would Affect India

July 17, 2008

The Iranian Angle

As the date (July 22) for the vote of confidence from the Lok Sabha in the Manmohan government nears and as the possibility of a premature election to the Lok Sabha looms large, a question often debated is the attitude of the Indian Muslims to the Indo-US nuclear deal: Do they regard it as anti-Muslim because of the perceived anti-Muslim policies of the administration of President George Bush?

…The criticism was not specific relating to the nuclear deal. It was more in relation to what they saw as India’s co-operation with the US and Israel in the war against jihadi terrorism. They noted with anger and surprise the reluctance of different political formations in India–in the rulling alliance as well as in the opposition– to criticise the allegedly inhuman conditions in which Muslims arrested in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other parts of the world on suspicion of belonging to Al Qaeda were kept in the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba and denied the basic human rights and the benefits of the due process of the law.

They give too much credit when they say “allegedly inhumane”.  Our administration is dangerously out of control, and the Dems just sit back and pretend everything is fine. Perhaps they need to leave la la land and face reality.
