49 Indians arrested in Israel

Yehhh dostii.hum nahiinnn.)

Jerusalem, Dec 11

As many as 49 Indians, who came to Israel less than two months ago for a course on irrigation and then disappeared, have been arrested, the Voice of Israel has reported.

The immigration police nabbed them while they were reportedly looking for work in this country, the report said, adding that they would be deported soon.

The person who helped them disappear and hide has not yet been caught, it said.

Following the establishment of full diplomatic relations ten years ago between India and Israel, several agricultural joint-ventures were launched and many agricultural scientists and related personnel visit this country every year to enhance their skills in various aspects of agriculture.

India has made all possible efforts to benefit from the Israeli expertise in agriculture, specially the much publicised drip-irrigation technique.

The concern regarding the disappearance of so many people is also born out of other reasons. With the unchecked downslide in economy following the outbreak of violence, the Israeli government has been taking special steps to nab illegal immigrants who have been working in Israel.

With the unemployment rate surging unchecked, efforts are on to replace foreign labour by local people.

actually vid pai .. India is not very friendly with Israel. India has always supported the Palestine cause - in fact was maybe the first (?) country to recognize Palestine as a sovereign nation. I could be wrong.

WASHINGTON JEWISH WEEK, OCTOBER 24, 2002

A GROWING PARTNERSHIP: JEWISH, INDIAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES
WORKING TOGETHER

by Eric Fingerhut, Staff Writer

Israel, India and the United States are all fighting terrorism, a
common
enemy that has helped spur another partnership -- between the American
Jewish and Indian American communities.

Several major Jewish organizations -- including the American Jewish
Committee, American Jewish Congress, American Israel Public Affairs
Committee and B'nai B'rith International -- have forged relationships
with
Indian American political groups and individuals in recent years. In
the
face of terrorism, those links have become even stronger in the past
year.

Relations between Israel and India, though, have been blossoming during
the
past 10-15 years, ever since the Indian government began to move away
from
the anti-Israel policy backed by the Non-Aligned Movement of developing
countries, a United Nations voting bloc formed during the cold war,
according to B'nai B'rith International executive vice president Dan
Mariaschin.

In recent years, Indian leaders coming to Washington customarily meet
with
representatives of major Jewish organizations.

Those contacts have led to the Jewish and Indian American communities
working more closely together on issues of common interest like
fighting
terrorism. Jews also have been advising Indian American activists on
how
most effectively to organize and advocate on behalf of their community.

Kap Sharma, a vice president of Madison Government Affairs consulting
firm
who works with the Indian-American Center for Political Awareness, said
that
the Jewish community has acted as somewhat of a "mentor" to politically
active Indian Americans.

Jewish groups are educating Indian Americans "about political
empowerment"
and the "successes and downfalls of the American Jewish community" in
the
political world, lessons that "may or may not apply" to his community,
said
Sharma.

"A lot of folks in the Indian American community look at what
[American]
Jews have done and try to model themselves after it," said Ajay
Kuntamukkala, an associate at Hogan & Hartson and president of the
South
Asian Bar Association of Washington, D.C.

Sharma said the Indian American community's political activism is
"still in
its early stages" and not as unified around particular issues or a
specific
agenda as the American Jewish community.

For example, while Indian Americans are interested in U.S. policy
toward
India, their concern is of a different degree than Jewish worries about
Israel.

Krishna Kumar, a local Indian American political activist, noted that
while
Israel is a small country that "requires a whole lot of vigilance,"
India is
"such an ... enormous country" that the "level of threat" is "very
different" and "not quite as much a motivating factor" among Indian
Americans.

He acknowledged, though, that the "nuclear threat" could change that
equation somewhat.

But both groups are concerned about "making the world safe from
terrorism,"
said David Bernstein, Washington area director of the American Jewish
Committee, which is sponsoring a session for Indian American leaders
with
the AJCommittee's Israel office director Eran Lerman next week.

Bernstein also is working on forging ties between business leaders in
the
two communities. (See sidebar.)

Chuck Brooks, the American Jewish Congress' Washington representative
and
National Capital Region director, provided some "general advice" to
INAPAC,
a new Indian-American political action committee that recently formed
in New
Jersey.

Brooks, who led the pro-Israel National PAC before joining AJCongress,
pointed out that the Indian and Jewish communities both are highly
educated,
and that the Indian community is attempting to "follow in the
footsteps" of
Jewish political involvement.

AJCongress has also been forging ties with Indian Americans and the
Indian
Embassy here, said Brooks. He compared the growing relationship between
India and Israel to the one that already exists between Turkey and the
Jewish state.

Jews and Indian Americans also have worked together on domestic
matters,
such as hate crimes and workplace religious freedom issues, said Tejpal
Chawla, an attorney at Crowell Moring who works with the Sikh
Mediawatch and
Resource Task Force.

After Sept. 11, such issues became even more important to Sikhs, who
were
often confused with Muslims in the days following the World Trade
Center and
Pentagon attacks.

But the fallout from Sept. 11 is not limited to Sikhs. Kumar said that
while
Indian Americans support the war on terror, they also are troubled by
some
of the anti-terrorism measures put in place. Almost every Indian
American
has been the victim of some sort of racial profiling, he said.

Kumar said Indian Americans -- many of whom are Hindus -- feel
particularly
comfortable working with the Jewish community because, unlike some
Christian
and Muslim groups, it is "not a missionary community ... they're not
interested in trying to convert us."

The Indian American community played a role in a key election this
summer,
ironically in a race in which American Jews also made an impact.

While Jews were upset at Rep. Cynthia McKinney's (D-Ga.) attitudes
toward
Israel, Indian Americans were bothered by her criticism of India, based
on
"misinformation," said Sharma.

"We tried to explain [the truth] to her," Sharma said, "but she didn't
take
heed," so Indian Americans supported her opponent, Denise Majette.

McKinney has said that India sponsors terrorism, among other
statements.

Sharma said that while some Indian Americans made donations to
Majette's
campaign, members of the community also volunteered and helped in get
out
the vote efforts.

McKinney obviously noticed. In a statement on the House floor last
month,
she criticized the "heavy involvement of Indians in the primary" and
railed
against India's "record of illegal interference in U.S. elections" --
even
though the Majette supporters were Americans.

INDIAN JEW GETS AJCOMMITTEE FELLOWSHIP

India's 6,500-member Jewish community may be shrinking, but at least
one
Indian Jew living in Washington, D.C., plans to go back.

Nissim Benjamin Reuben is attending business school at American
University
and working as a fellow in the American Jewish Committee's Washington
office
on projects to forge closer links between the Indian and Jewish
communities
in the States.

The fellowship came about when Reuben, 32, and AJCommittee Washington
area
director David Bernstein met in August in Australia. Both were
participating
in the Nahum Goldmann Fellowship program for young Jewish leaders.

One of Reuben's primary responsibilities with the Jewish group will be
to
coordinate meetings between local Indian business leaders and
entrepreneurs -- many of whom are in the high-tech field -- and their
counterparts in the D.C.-area Jewish community. He also will be
promoting
social and cultural relations between the two communities.

Reuben brings ample experience working in both economics and
Jewish-Indian
relations to his AJCommittee work. In India, he worked in the Israeli
consulate office and as a trade promotion specialist at the British
High
Commission in Bombay.

He notes that Israel is the second largest supplier of military
equipment to
India, and the two countries have a vibrant diamond trade as well.

Relations between Indian Jews and the rest of the country are also
"very
friendly," he said.

"I have never come across any anti-Semitism" in India, he said.

Prior to the summer fellowship program, Reuben had thought about moving
to
the United States and working in the business world. But after his
experience in Australia, he has decided that after finishing school he
will
return to India and help to create future Jewish community leaders
there.

Reuben plans to keep busy while in D.C., though. In addition to his
studies
and his work at the AJCommittee, he is offering to tutor anyone who
needs
help with Hebrew. In addition to Hebrew, Reuben speaks English, Hindi
and
two other local Indian languages. -- Eric Fingerhut

I was in Colombo and Bangkok sometime back.I saw batallions of Desis,mostly Sardars, moving under suspicious circumstances around the airport.Looked like all illegal immigrants ,under transit to some other country.
I have also seen some Desis who go to Colombo and Bangkok just for getting their Passports stamped for Visa,as they issue on arrival for Asians.These guys dont even go out of the airport and come back by the next available flight.
