Prime Minster Modi, Sushma Swaraj To Meet Israeli PM Today

"Welcome to India, my friend Netanyahu!".

Still there are irritants in the growing relationship, including India's cancellation of a $500 million anti-tank missile deal with Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

"They are trampling our children with unbridled cruelty, wickedness and hypocrisy", Benjamin Netanyahu pleaded his case, noting that not all of Israeli society was cruel to him and his loved ones, and, in fact, "many citizens in the State of Israel gave Yair and us a warm shoulder".

"Very much appreciate the gesture", the Jerusalem Post quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Netanyahu's first official meeting will be with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.

The visit comes six months after Modi's own visit to Israel and days after India voted at the United Nations against the USA move to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"In the past year, I have visited all continents besides Antarctica", Netanyahu said at the opening of the Knesset's (Israeli parliament) winter session last month. "This visit is an opportunity to enhance cooperation with a global economic, security, technology and tourism power", he added.

In the long run, securing the support of the world's most populous democracy, or at least not encountering resistance, would serve Israel's diplomatic interests beyond bilateral ties with India.

Modi would be accompanying the visiting leader on Wednesday to his home state of Gujarat where the two leaders would participate in a road show in Ahmedabad, similar to the one organised for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in September past year.

He said in a statement that Perdue was elected to the Senate to represent Georgia and "not to serve as Trump's bootlicker". There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked.

The Bharatiya Janata Party condemned the meme video, alleging that the opposition party had "lost its sense and balance" which "does not behove a mature political party".

Union Minister Babul Supriyo, speaking to Times Now said that "timing of video is deplorable". Today only a survey found him at number 3 in popularity as a world leader.

After the IDF attacked and destroyed a terror tunnel on Saturday night, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad "should not try" Israel. Meanwhile, Army Chief general Bipin Rawat was also present at Netanyahu's welcome ceremony.

Agreements and MoUs are expected to be signed in the spheres of agriculture, innovation, water management etc.

Bilateral agreements will be signed in energy, cyber and aviation.

The BJP on Sunday termed as "irresponsible" and "disgusting", a tweet and a meme by the main Opposition Congress on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visit to India.

The visiting dignitary, on Monday, will be given a ceremonial reception at Rashtrapati Bhawan which will be followed by the wreath laying at the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi. On Tuesday, he will fly to Agra to view the iconic Taj Mahal.

He will also meet with a forum of CEOs from major Indian companies, take part in the Raisina worldwide geopolitical forum, and meet leaders of the Jewish communities in India.

Netanyahu will travel to Modi's home state of Gujarat on Wednesday, to Mumbai on Thursday and is scheduled to arrive home a few hours before Shabbat on Friday.
