  1. Israelis are the best in dealing with militants and terrorists. It is said that Mossad is one of the best intelligence organizations and the best when it comes to dealing with the Middle East and West Asian matters.

    When one soldier or militant is killed, India should retaliate by hunting and hounding militants and liquidating them without any compassion and ensure five are killed for every soul lost. Does China extend human rights to anyone, especially militants and terrorists?

    If the Jammu & Kashmir Government does not come down heavily on militants and keeps silent, then it is in truck with them and it should be dismissed and the State should be brought under the President’s rule. Separatists should also be put in preventive custody and held incommunicado. How come, they have the guts to come to Delhi and meet Pakistan’s High Commissioner?
