MESATO :

India and Israel: Dawn of a New Era (Dr. D. Kumar, Dec 1 2001, WesternDefense.org) (via Free Republic)
At the beginning of the 21st century, South Asia and the Middle East pose major challenges to international peace and security. Amid many turbulent political and military developments in the two regions, India and Israel find a growing convergence in their strategic interests. The emerging Delhi-Jerusalem strategic alliance is creating much concern in the Arab world, but could become one of the crucial factors maintaining global security.

This is a long but fascinating account of the emerging cooperation and alignment of interests between Israel and India. Add Israel's relationship with Turkey to the equation and you have the makings of a Middle Eastern/South Asian organization of democratic nations that more than counterbalances the axis of evil. Forget NATO; this is the alliance we should be cultivating. Posted by Orrin Judd at May 23, 2002 12:45 PM
