One of Israel's two chief rabbis, that is Yona Metzger, religious head of the Ashkenazis, that is the European, that is Khazar, that is non-Semite Jews, paid a high profile visit to India during 5-7 February while friends of the Jewsih state here
celebrated the 15th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Israel which was the only wish of the RSS delegation which met Narasimha Rao soon he became prime minister in 1991.
Ashkenazis are the people who established Israel and still control it while the oriental Jews, Sephardim, are second class citizens and the Israeli Arabs are third class citizens of the state which boasts to be the only
democracy in the Middle East.
In Delhi, the Ashkenazi chief rabbi met top Hindu leaders including leaders of the RSS and BJP in what was termed as "Jewish-Hindu summit." It led to a 9-point "Declaration of Mutual Understanding and Cooperation from the First Jewish-Hindu Leadership Summit" (text: http://www.wfn.org/2007/02/msg00073.html).
The declaration primarily acknowledges the “shared values” of the two traditions, as well as “the common challenges.” The summit, the
delegation hoped, will lead to "ongoing bilateral meetings on shared values and common concerns.” The declaration noted that both the religions do not seek to proselytize and “condemn all activities that go against the sanctity of this mutual respect.” The declaration further said that both religions have "gone through the painful experiences of persecution, oppression and destruction. Therefore, they realize the need to educate the present and succeeding generations about their past, in order that they will make right efforts to promote religious harmony."
The summit declaration, which failed to say anything about the occupation of Palestine, expulsion of the majority of the Palestinians from their homeland and continued denial of their national, political, social and religious rights, also resolved to constitute a "Standing Committee on Hindu-Jewish Relations." The declaration was signed from the Hindu side by Swami Dayanand Saraswati, head of Dharma Acharya Sabha, who is close to the RSS.
The so-called "summit" was organised by an obscure organisation called "World Council of Religious Leaders" which is headed by Bawa Jain who found it necessary to allay "apprehensions that the meeting aimed to forge an alliance against Islam and Christianity." Jain revealed the reason behind this bonhomie: "Since Jews were a powerful community in the US, their association with Hindus would help to strengthen Indo-US relations."
The Israeli side, on the other hand, betrayed its aim from this strange alliance. “Several Hindu leaders expressed their dismay at Muslim violence," said Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger. "They told me that both Judaism and Hinduism were the mothers from which all other religions suckled. But sometimes the offsprings bite the breast that feeds them," he told Jerusalem Post (6 Feb.). While Rabbi David Rosen, international director of
inter-religious affairs at the American Jewish Committee said that, “Although, Muslim extremism was not singled out, it was at the forefront of many participants' minds." Speaking on the occasion, Swami Dayanand Saraswati said, "Hindu-Jewish dialogue will act as a benchmark for others to follow and emulate." The Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman called it an "historic event.”
Chief Rabbi Metzger made a touching reference to the lasting contribution made by the BJP leader LK Advani in furthering the friendship and co-operation between India and Israel. Israeli Ambassador David Danieli was also present during the dinner at Advani’s official residence while the (Jewish) Indian officer, Lt. Gen. (retd) JFR Jacob, was part of the Jewish delegation. The tainted Kanchi Shankaracharya Swami Jayendra Saraswati too was involved with the Hindu side represented by some thirty prominent Hindu leaders.
The Chief Rabbi said, "It is seldom that I go to somebody's residence to participate in a reception. Our custom does not allow this. But, here, I came to Shri L.K. Advani's residence, as if I were going to my own home. It is a debt that we owe to the leader. As India's Internal Minister, he was the first Indian top official to visit Israel. He played a major and sustained role in furthering and cementing the relations between the two countries. We immensely value this gesture. Our people are greatly indebted to India."
It was unfortunate that some Indian Muslim leaders and scholars chose to meet the visiting chief rabbi and that too in the house of BJP leader LK Advani during whose time, as home minister, Indo-Israeli relations were transformed into "strategic relationship" to the point of exchanging intelligence and allowing the Israeli espionage and sabotage agency, Mossad, to openly operate in India. Until the Palestinian issue is solved to the satisfaction of the victims of the Israeli aggression no normal and cordial relations are possible with Jews who for fourteen centuries found patronage and refuge in Muslim countries from European persecution, and had their "golden period" under Islam according to their own (pre-Israel) confession. They held highest positions under Muslims in Egypt, Syria and Spain. All that goodwill was squandered by their gross injustice to the people of Palestine and insistence to stay in the Middle East as the catspaw of the western imperialism.
