Indian PM Narendra Modi sold India’s soul and dignity to defend Israeli barbarities which always go unpunished

Dismissing justice, crimes against humanity, sentiments of Indian Muslims and the Muslims worldwide, the government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the architect of the massacre of Muslims in Godhra, has abstained in the United Nations resolution holding Israel accountable for its latest war crimes in Gaza in 2014. 

India joined four other countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Paraguay and Macedonia to abstain while 41 countries vote in favor of the resolution. The United States where governments are made and unmade by powerful pro Zionist Jewish lobbies and the  successive US presidents shamefully implement  evil Zionist  agenda in the Middle East and worldwide, stand isolated by the whole world as it was the only country to vote against the resolution.

All European Union member states of the Council voted in favor of the resolution. These include Britain and France which planted the alien and barbaric entity of Israel   in the lands of Palestinians in the heart of Middle East.

The fact that India abstained reflects a significant policy change as traditionally, India voted in favor of all resolutions condemning Israeli crimes against humanity in UN institutions. Friday's abstention is another sign of warming ties between India, under RSS Hindutva fascism, and Israel since the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014.   

Welcoming the UN Human Rights Council report, the resolution calls for the implementation of the report, its recommendations and end to the impunity of Israeli officials responsible for war crimes.  The resolution also calls on all   on all UNHRC member states to ensure the application of international law in the occupied Palestinian territories. 

The report, written by Commission of Inquiry's chairwoman, the American jurist Mary McGowan Davis   and Doudou Diene, a lawyer from Senegal, said that "impunity prevails across the board" regarding the actions of Israeli forces in Gaza, and it called on Israel to "break with its recent lamentable track record in holding wrongdoers accountable."  

Alongside the shocking death toll, the document also talks about the enormous destruction of civilian infrastructure in Gaza. Some international agencies have calculated that the reconstruction of the enclave may take more than 100 years, due to the Israeli blockade. In this regard, the commission says the impact of the 2014 attacks "cannot be assessed

separately from the blockade."

As usual in the cased of Israel the UN Council has no binding powers, but its moral authority could pressure Israel to hold perpetrators of war crimes accountable.modi hitler1

 On 23 July 2014, the Human Rights Council adopted a resolution in which it decided to establish an independent, international commission of inquiry to investigate all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip, in the context of the military operations conducted since 13 June 2014, and to report to the Council at its twenty-eighth session in March 2015.  

 Israeli forces frequently used precision-guided missiles, indicating that they were aimed at specific targets, the report said, but many of the attacks came when families were gathered to break the Ramadan fast or were asleep, increasing the likelihood of civilian deaths. In six cases that the panel looked into, they found little or no information to explain why residential buildings "which are prima facie civilian objects immune from attack, were considered to be legitimate military objectives." 

Writing in the Indian daily HINDU   VIJAY PRASHAD who teaches International Studies at Trinity College, had this to state;  

"By abstaining from a crucial vote that would have allowed the ICC to investigate Israeli war crimes, India sends signals of a disturbingly different stance towards Palestine.  

 Israel has pinned its hopes on the Narendra Modi government to break India's ties with the Palestinians and join the United States, Palau and Nauru in the pro-Israel bloc in the UN. The Bharatiya Janata Party and its ancestors have called for close ties with Israel since 1948, largely because of their antipathy to Muslims. Mr. Modi has already suggested that he would be the first Indian head of government to visit Israel. This new alignment could very well be signaled by India's abstention on this vote. Suggestions of principle by the Ministry of External Affairs are well and good, but these might not contain the entire story. Other, less noble, motivations might be at play.


India's abstention does not help the situation in West Asia. In fact, it has given the Israeli policymakers respite, and has betrayed the slim hopes of the Palestinian people. There are few issues that can unite this much of the international community in almost unanimous agreement.

Images   show just how isolated the US is on the global stage, and just how deranged US public and political discourse around Israel-Palestine is. The fact that the international political disparity continued to grow in the wake of Israel's summer 2014 attack on Gaza and that the US refuses to pass even the most moderately worded and lukewarm of UN resolutions further demonstrate this fact.

If Mondoweiss were a clickbait publication, the title of this piece would likely be "How the US Is a Rogue State, in One Image."

The "battle for the hearts and minds," as it is said, of 95% of the world was already won long ago. The international community is, with few exceptions, united in its desire to see international law respected in occupied Palestine (in the form of an end to Israel's illegal occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the cessation of its illegal siege on Gaza) and human rights guaranteed to the indigenous Palestinian population.

The US is—and has long been, as renowned historian Rashid Khalidi details—the primary obstacle standing in the way of justice, equality, and peace in Israel-Palestine.

Israel and RSS and its deceptive front Modi's BJP, suffer from the same incurable disease of common hatred towards Islam and Muslims. They both remain soaked in Muslim blood.

 Israel's all out support to bring Narendra Modi to power remains equally common knowledge. The two certainly have their joint evil designs on Muslim countries between Israel and India.

Millions of Indians work and live in the oil rich Gulf countries and remit around 38 billion dollars annually. Modi cares a damn for this as he knows that the ruthless and shameless tyrants in the Middle East, protected and promoted by US, UK and European imperialism, will ever take note of this.
