PM Modi, Israeli PM Netanyahu dedicate entrepreneurship centre - iCreate to the nation

The greetings from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "Dhanyavad Mere Pyare Dost" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and "Aliechem Shalom" by Modi to his Israeli counterpart depicted the bonhomie between the two leaders during their visit to Gujarat on Wednesday.

Among the CEOs present were Ashok Hinduja, Anand Mahindra, Adi Godrej, Ajay Piramal, Harsh Goenka and Chanda Kochhar, with whom Netanyahu cheerfully interacted before getting down to breakfast-cum-business. "The Jewish nation is accompanying you all the way", said Netanyahu. Our job is to encourage you to innovate. In addition, there is a partnership of genuine sympathy between our people.

India's Israel policy has gone a sea change following Modi coming to power in 2014 and that was one reason it was necessary to tell the Palestinians that India's policy towards that country has not changed.

The Prime Minister's Office clarified to the Israeli media on Thursday that what Netanyahu meant was that the United States is considering "interim measures" that would allow for its embassy to be moved to Jerusalem within a year.

Netanyahu marked the boy's height on a wall just as his mother did during their time in Mumbai, where the adult Holtzbergs were remembered as hardworking emissaries for the Jewish community.

Netanyahu's first state visit to India, capping a year in which he assiduously courted the Asian giant, was brimming with positive optics and lavish compliments.

Netanyahu was received by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at the Kheria Airport.

Jonathan Solomon, chairman of the Indian Jewish Federation, said the reciprocal visits and warm ties between the two countries are significant to Jews in India.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu stands with Moshe Holtzberg as he reads the blessing one makes when returning to a place one has escaped danger.

A "living memorial" to Holtzberg's parents was unveiled at the Nariman Chabad House in Mumbai. The Israeli Prime Minister lives in Jerusalem and their unicameral legislature, the Knesset, meet in Jerusalem.

Speaking to The Times of Israel, he said leaving the top floors as a reminder of the carnage would allow the tragedy to be used "a springboard for growth". "India is unbelievable because it has two cultures that had been distant but after thousands of years have met in a way that's never happened in history". Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, and four of their guests, were among the 166 murdered during the three-day siege. "We already have 20 such centres across India and soon we will have 30 of them,"Israeli PM said".
