India. A nation with rickety legs walking on a treadmill, constantly looking over its shoulder. WEAK and UNSURE. And going NOWHERE.

Sorry about this, @Israel. Perhaps we need some more time to learn how to treat our true friends. Bear with us, please.
@Israel Disagree with you, though, @sushantsareen, on your suggestion that @MEAIndia should at least have abstained. Abstaining is the hallmark of the weak, of cowards:
Maybe @MEAIndia should junk Satow and read a bit of Naipaul.
@MEAIndia Gloating at having voted No; little more than dancing at the funeral of a trusted friend (@Israel) who you ditched. Not the kind of India to be proud of. SHAMEFUL.
STUNNING piece by @Iyervval, on the treachery we have indulged in. Words of unparalleled wisdom here for the "housetrained" @narendramodi if he is prepared to listen. But is he?

I see @narendramodi and this is what I see. #Israel #ForeignPolicy
To @narendramodi and @SushmaSwaraj with love, from the Palestinian Ambassador to Pakistan. (image courtesy @Iyervval) #Israel
Incredible that this is ONLY the second ever Indian visit by an @IsraeliPM; the last one was back in 2003, again during an NDA govt.

@Israel - India's tenth largest trading & second largest defence parter, REPEATEDLY sold down the drain by @INCIndia, with the exception of PVNR.
Israel. Helped us with critical military aid during the 1971 war when most Arab states sided with Pakistan or were neutral. Offered to raze Kahuta, Pak's nuclear facility, for us. Helped us during the Kargil War. Always supported us on Kashmir. Our second largest Defence partner.
“What have Arabs given us? Did they vote for us on the Kashmir issue? Were they supportive of us when we had the Bangladesh crisis (1971)?" - PV Narasimha Rao's Foreign Secretary JN Dixit.

And we all know how @INCIndia treated both Israel and PVN Rao. books.google.co.in/books?id=SaxCI…
Timeline of India-Israel Relations under @INCIndia. Rebuff, rebuke, back-stabbing of a trusted friend at every step.
Egypt, and almost all our Arab friends DITCHED us to stand with Pakistan during the Indo-Pak 1971 war.

And who came to our help? Yes, @Israel. The SAME Israel we rebuked, and then back-stabbed in 1973.

EXPLOSIVE revelations from the Haksar Papers: (books.google.co.in/books?id=u6gQC…)
While we remember on #KargilVijayDiwas the 527 Indian heroes who lost their lives, we forget that the count would have been MUCH MORE had @Israel not helped us with CRITICAL supply of ammunition & laser-guided missiles

But, hey, we thanked Israel. By voting AGAINST it in the UN.
How utterly shameful and humiliating can this be. We refuse to call out terrorists as terrorists even as we plead with others to do the same.

Yet again, we stab friend @Israel in the back. Yet again. timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/india-ab…
For those condemning China for thwarting India's bid to designate #MasoodAzhar a terrorist, here's a sobering thought: India thwarted its friend Israel's bid to designate Hamas a terror organisation.

As you sow, so shall you reap.

Stand with your friends. Like China does.
One thing's for certain. China can protect its friend Pakistan as much as it wants, the world now knows that with the Balakot strike, India crossed the rubicon.

There's an Israeli Spice-2000 bomb with #MasoodAzhar's name on it - ready and waiting. He can run but he can't hide.
690 rockets launched at @Israel in the last two days, four civilians killed, thousands affected, utter mayhem, terror raining from the skies - have @narendramodi or @SushmaSwaraj tweeted in solidarity yet?

Or are we still undecided as to who our true friends are?
