I don’t know much about Indian politics, so I haven’t written about the election sweep which threw out the long-dominant Congress Party.

I do know that successive Indian governments have had at times contradictory relations with with Israel; not as crazed anti-Israel as many, but not solidly on Israel’s side either.

Right. The reason the administration is so intent on lobbing a few cruise missiles at Syria is to protect Israel. Secretary of State Kerry said:
