    Israel, as a tiny country, has smartly been building settlements on the lands disputed by others – aka “facts on the ground”. Meanwhile, India has stupidly been sitting around on its thumbs, when it could have been doing the same for J&K. India gives the impression of a lumbering dinosaur with a low brain-to-body mass ratio, in contrast to a furry mammal like Israel. Anyway, hopefully India will at least pursue joint development with Israel on weapons programs, as there is massive potential for complementarity between the 2 countries.
