Indian Muslim leaders issued a joint statement condemning Israeli President Shimon Peres' Islamophobic and racist remarks whiIe in India. The statement said that tiny but highly arrogant Israel should realize that it is committing a mockery of democratic principles by suggesting policies to a country which is 200 times its population. The leaders stated that Israel should stop day-dreaming that it can continue to overlord the Middle East thinking that it can forever rely on the blind American support because the Middle East’s sand is shifting fast and even Israel’s American allies are now saying that a decade from now Israel may not exist. As the only remaining apartheid regime in the world, Israel is destined to disappear from the map of the world, sooner or later like the apartheid regime in South Africa. Muslims leaders advises Israel to make peace with its neighbours, give Palestinians their inalienable rights, return the occupied lands and stop its criminal siege of Gaza Strip and equally illegal settlements in the West Bank.
