Indian PM Modi’s Historic Visit to Israel Sends Powerful Message to Jewish State’s Detractors, Top Expert Says

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to Israel is a wake-up call to those who believe the Jewish state is isolated and friendless, a leading expert on Indian-Israeli relations told The Algemeiner on Thursday.

“Those who say we are isolated, as [former President Barack] Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry did, should switch on the news,” said Shalom Wald — a senior fellow at the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) in Jerusalem and the co-author of the recently-published book, India, Israel and the Jewish People: Looking Ahead, Looking Back 25 Years After Normalization.

The “tremendous success” of Modi’s visit was an appropriate riposte to Kerry’s December 2016 speech in which he warned that Israel’s policies in the West Bank were isolating the country from the rest of the international community, Wald said.

“Just by visiting, Modi confirmed publicly that he had undertaken a major U-turn in Indian policy,” Wald said. “The Indian media was enthusiastic, hundreds of millions of Indians heard about Israel and Judaism for the first time.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
