Abstract and Keywords

Since the early 1920s, disagreements with Jewish national aspirations and later on the Arab–Israeli conflict prevented India from maintaining even formal relations. Since the normalization of relations in 1992, India has been pursuing a mature policy that differentiates bilateral benefits from multilateral differences. Without abandoning its core positions concerning the Palestinians, India has managed to forge a strong and nuanced relationship with Israel. This policy enjoys the support of principal stakeholders in both the countries. The long-term stability, sustainability, and progress of this relationship depend upon the ability of both the countries to find common ground for cooperation while agreeing to disagree on the disagreeable.

Keywords: India, Arab–Israeli conflict, Israel, Palestine, Jewish aspirations
