Bollywood stars rally with Israel PM at special gala event

Bollywood stars rally with Israel PM at special gala event

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday had a "power breakfast" with select business personalities, including Anand Mahindra, Ajay Piramal, Adi Godrej, and Chanda Kochhar.

Netanyahu announced that India's purchase of an Israeli-made weapon, initially canceled in favor of a domestically developed product, was "back on track." .

All through the solemn but emotion-free event, Netanyahu was seen constantly smiling, and speaking to little Moshe, most of times with his arms around the boy's shoulder.

The Chabad House attack was one of several attacks on Mumbai sites over four days in November 2008 by a Pakistani Islamist group that left 166 dead - including Moshe's parents, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg - and hundreds injured. "We are moved by the awesome welcome we have received from the prime minister and citizens of India".

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday he believed the USA embassy in Israel could be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem within a year, reports said, contradicting statements from U.S. officials.

Eyeing at boosting entrepreneurship in the country, Prime Minister Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu dedicated the iCREATE facility located on the outskirts of Ahmedabad to the nation.


Netanyahu said his administration's measures have ensured Israel climbing 12 spots to be 15th on the World Bank's competitive index rankings.

"In the past, the Jewish people have witnessed a lot of challenges but with the help of God they overcame everything. I added up the other star followers and I realised you are big", Netanyahu said while addressing the event.

On February 10, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will land in Ramallah in what will be the first-ever visit by an Indian prime minister to Palestine.

"India will buy Israel's anti-tank spike missiles", the paper quoted PM Netanyahu as saying after spending the day with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. Few foreign leaders landing in Delhi have been greeted with rapturous crowds and a near-constant personal escort from the host prime minister.

Countries like the US, Singapore and Switzerland, which out-rank Israel in the rankings, make him "lose sleep" and not the ones like Syria, Netanyahu said.

He will top it off with a gala dinner meeting with top Indian film industry players at the much-anticipated "Shalom Bollywood" at 8 pm, in which megastar Amitabh Bachchan, leading actors and actresses, producers, directors shall participate.
