India-Israel relations refer to the bilateral ties between the Republic of India and theState of Israel. The two countries enjoy an extensive economic, military and strategic relationship.

India is the largest customer ofIsraeli military equipment and Israel is the second-largest military partner of India afterRussia. As of 2009, the military business between the two nations is worth around US$9 billion. Military and strategic ties between the two nations extend to joint military training and space technology.

India is Israel’s largest defence market, accounting for almost fifty percent of Israeli sales.

India is also the second-largest Asian economic partner of Israel.

In 2010, bilateral trade, excluding military sales, stood at US $4.7 billion. In August 2012, India and Israel signed a $50 million academic research agreement. Currently, the two nations are negotiating an extensive bilateral free trade pact, focusing on areas such as information technology, biotechnology and agriculture.

On a diplomatic level, both the countries have managed to maintain healthy relations despite India’s repeated strong condemnations of Israeli military actions inPalestinian territories ,which are believed by analysts to be motivated by theUnited Progressive Alliance (UPA) government’s desire forMuslim votes in India. [HAMAS, a Palestinian Sunni Islamic organization, with an associated military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, in the Palestinian territories] after lynching 3 innocent teenagers, launching over 500 Rockets on civilian centres, chanting “Death to the Jews”, refusing them a right to exist, threatening to drown Israel in the sea, using Mosques, Schools and Infirmaries for storing weapons cache and as bases for launching Rocket attacks on Israel, using Palestinian civilians as Human-shield, and other such “chivalrous” acts, HAMAS and their sympathizers now want the Rest of the World to “Pray For Gaza”.?

And for Israel I would like to say “No revenge is good revenge” please stop these attacks. At the end of the day neither a ‘Muslim’ nor a ‘Jew’ but a human-being is killed.
