Growing conservatism among religious nationalist movements is threatening people without political power across borders. On today’s episode, we look at the colonial, military and political connections between India and its conservative Hindutva movement, and Israel’s zionist movement. The lands of both these countries were British colonies, and their political development since formal colonial times have included religious and ethnic partitions and borders – with Palestine on the one side and Pakistan and the Kashmir on the other. They have also built powerful military partnerships and share a growing military-industrial relationship. We are joined by Azad Essa, a South African journalist who covers US foreign policy, Islamophobia and race in the US for Middle East Eye. His new book, just out on Pluto Press, is called Hostile Homelands: The New Alliance Between India and Israel.
