international and external and told her: “The Soviet Union has been and will remain a reliable friend of India and the Indian people Brezhnev said so as Mrs Gandhi reaffirmed India’s “determination to be ourselves and to preserve our identity” The two leaders spoke after nearly two hours of formal talks when the entire top leadership of the Soviet Union Brezhnev Podgorny and Kosygin turned up to begin three days of discussions with Mrs Gandhi Sources said the leaders discussed a variety of issues including China and Bangladesh Israel Shadow Leftist forces said Israel warplanes tried to attack regions of southern Lebanon but but were driven off by ground fire The leftist-controlled radio said Israeli military planes “tried to attack Nabatiyeh Tyre and Sidon” It said they were “intercepted

get involved in this mess was right but he has been pushed into it under domestic and international pressure Related News Most of the chaos and turmoil in West Asia today can be traced to events during and after World War I But the different Arab states created out of the Ottoman Empire with artificial boundaries have by now acquired well-established identities and their peoples have developed a sense of nationhood and nationalism strong enough for them to be ready to defend their countries’ sovereignty and territorial integrity Nor is it necessary to go back to 1947-48 when Israel was created in the Arab heartland though this too has left scars and enmities that linger Here again the Arab states have become realistic enough to accept the fact of Israel’s existence and are ready to do business with it but for the constraint of the long-festering Palestinian problem There are two dates that are appropriate for the purpose of analysing the current mess in Mesopotamia — 2003 and 2011 The former was when the Bush administration launched its intervention in Iraq on false pretences In 2011 the civil war in Syria started when some of Syria’s neighbours and the West set the ouster of the Assad regime as their highest and sole priority although for different motives The neocons in Washington persuaded George W Bush to intervene in Iraq even at the cost of shifting attention and resources away from Afghanistan to implement their and Israel’s agenda of getting rid — politically and physically — of Saddam Hussein Saddam’s execution was one thing the dismantling of the entire state apparatus including the army quite another The operation ignited forces that caused the sectarian divide to deepen there and across the region Al-Qaeda which had no presence in Iraq under Saddam’s rule established one that indulged in massive acts of terror and mayhem The sectarian tension that had been lying suppressed for centuries burst open; it led to the phenomenon known as the Islamic State (IS) A caliphate as well as a caliph have been proclaimed with territory finances and an administration able to raise taxes But it is also a ruthless state determined to establish sharia rule and eliminate all opposition Muslim and non-Muslim that stands in its way The IS has the capability to fight conventional battles Its military commander is reported to be a former vice president of Saddam The IS has spread from Iraq to Syria obliterating national boundaries and capturing large swathes of territory in both countries All this can be traced directly to the American intervention of 2003 The Syrian civil war might have started as an offshoot of the “Arab Spring” but it soon morphed into a full-blown conflict involving all the regional countries as well as extra-regional ones like the US The initial spark perhaps lit by the events in Tunisia and Egypt in early 2011 was exploited to mobilise assorted groups in Syria to get rid of the Assad regime not so much because it was a ruthless government that had indulged in massive violations of human rights but because of two other factors The Arab neighbours — all of whom were Sunni sultans emirs etc — wanted to eliminate the Shia minority regime in Damascus whereas the West influenced by Israel wanted to sever the Tehran-Damascus nexus that fed the Hezbollah in Lebanon Washington wanted to break this link because it would have clipped the political and diplomatic clout of Iran which Israel regards as an existential threat These interests converged to produce the Syrian crisis The interventions of 2003 and 2011 have created a no-win situation for the stakeholders To fight the IS in Syria would need the cooperation of the Syrian government Even many Western countries — while willing to take part in the bombing of the IS in Iraq since the Baghdad government has sought their help — are reluctant to participate in the operation in Syria since it lacks legitimacy without UN Security Council authorisation Having made the ouster of the Assad regime the primary objective the “international community” cannot ask for its cooperation without losing face and credibility The regime in Damascus is sitting pretty since the weakening of the IS only helps it The battle for the Syrian village of Kobani on the border with Turkey has created a huge domestic political problem for Turkey since the Kurds in Kobani are fighting for survival and want fellow Kurds in Turkey to aid them which Ankara has been unwilling to permit US President Barack Obama’s instinct to not get involved in this mess was right but he has been pushed into it under domestic and international pressure He does not want to “put boots on the ground” but has already done so with about 2000 US troops deployed in Iraq Without a sizeable number of additional troops over and above the Iraqi forces the IS cannot be defeated Addressing a thinktank conclave on October 16 Vice President Hamid Ansari a formidable scholar of West Asia raised an intriguing question He reminded the audience that the National Intelligence Council of the US in a report dated in 2004 and called “Mapping the Global Future 2014” had projected four possible fictional scenarios in West Asia one of which was called “A New Caliphate” Even Muslim societies did not use this term in their discourse at the time He wondered if this was extraordinary prescience or a desire to reignite an old idea last dilated upon by Rashid Rida in 1923 All this suggests that the turmoil in the region will continue Its primary beneficiary has been Iran Here again the West is in a dilemma Iran’s cooperation is vital in combating the IS Saudi Arabia and Qatar which have invested heavily in radical Syrian factions such as the Jabhat al-Nusra but have now been obliged to join the American-led coalition against the IS are thereby helping Iran as well as Assad A fascinating but deadly cocktail of sectarian and geopolitical tensions and rivalry India has done well to refuse to be dragged into this messy situation But we should not shy away from lending political support It would be most unwise for us to continue to pretend that the rise of the IS holds no negative consequences for us The IS may not conduct operations on Indian soil but its ideology will certainly attract many a Muslim youth in India We are no longer able to claim as we could a few years ago that no Indian Muslim has fought in foreign jihads Already dozens if not hundreds are fighting in Syria alongside al-Nusra and the IS The unfurling of IS flags is a

Tez channel has honed its morning astrology programme into Rajyog a segment which examines electoral fortunes Yesterday its astrologer reported a powerful conjunction between the horoscopes of Narendra Modi and the BJP which makes his swearing-in almost inevitable Yes the BJP has a horoscope Maybe your microwave has one too since it was born at a definite measurable point in time and space even if it was a production line But the conjunction has raised a megawave in the media at least — on TV in print on the radio and the internet on bus stops on autorickshaws on saffron caps on the distressingly bald heads of storefront mannequins So much Moditva invited the two questions which Indians traditionally ask when faced by impressive phenomena: How much does it cost And where’s the money coming from The tsunami swept everything away and if you came up for air you were startled to see the rest of the world’s media calmly going about its business Well kicking the competition in the tonsils actually Like Al Jazeera has been jeering at CNN for breathlessly going at the story of the lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 Accusing the news TV pioneer of “reporting fact-based fiction” it’s actually Marwan Bishara host of the channel’s Empire programme going at the revenue-attractive infotainment of CNN president Jeff Zucker (who has by the way killed the 9 pm talk show slot) The devastation is extensive and even Peter Arnett is collaterally damaged But by staying riveted on MH370 CNN has recovered from a long slump and has been gaining eyeballs on the tube and the net like never before An interesting aside: at the recent launch of a book by a media figure one’s jaw fell like a trap door to hear a fairly prominent journalist say that MH370 was not being reported in the Western media because the toll was almost completely Asian Really we don’t keep up The line between the two media is so thin especially in well-connected societies that the Financial Times is gaining a visual presence without bothering to invest in a TV channel Wonder why they don’t though since they have a studio offering impressive panoramic views of London of the sort which we were wont to see framing the exuberant halo of Lord Desai Their videos offer the same views and I enjoyed one anchored by investment columnist John Authers in which he let BlackRock chief investment strategist and after-hours karateka Russ Koesterlich tell a Western audience why investing in the Fragile Five remains a good idea why risk needs to be limited by sectoral prudence and why the name of the bloc is ironic since it was coined when it began to recover Indeed the rupee has recovered more than half of what it bled in the recession as Authers mentioned It’s illuminating to see us reflected in the eyes of the foreign investors that our media is always on about hazarding guesses about their nature and cultural practices like interstellar anthropologists FT has an app for Samsung smart TVs but
