Israel's Netanyahu in India to seal trade and defense deals

Thousands march in Tel Aviv against government corruption

However, the fact that Congress chose to attack PM Modi at a time when Netanyahu is visiting wasn't lost on Twitter.

Netanyahu will be visiting Delhi, Agra, Gujarat and Mumbai, and he will be accompanied by the Indian Prime Minister on extensive portions of his visit.

"In the past year, I have visited all continents besides Antarctica", Netanyahu said at the opening of the Knesset's (Israeli parliament) winter session last month.

He is the second Prime Minister from his country after Ariel Sharon to visit India in the last 25 years of a diplomatic relationship. It is considered important as Netanyahu chose to visit India within six month of Modi's trip to Israel in July a year ago. The prime minister will also host a private dinner for the Israeli leader.

The Israeli PM would be formally welcomed on Monday morning at the Rashtrapati Bhavan before the two PMs hold delegation-level talks.

The protesters chanted "Down with Israel" and "Down with Netanyahu" and called Indian government to cut ties with the Zionist regime.

In 2015, Israeli exports to India saw a 21 percent increase.

Quinnipiac Poll: Trump is intelligent but not level headed
Even when Trump has something going for him in terms of his poll numbers, it is often tainted. The majority of people give Trump a poor grade for his first year in office .

The envoy also referred to the personal equation between Modi and Natenyahu. "When that happens, usually Israel has something to do with it, not on every flight but on many flights", he said.

The renaming gesture underscores the special link and the common history between Israel and India, Netanyahu said after the event.

"The relationship is an all-weather relationship", he told reporters Friday, adding it was "so strong and so important to both countries that our feeling is that nothing can reverse it".

The envoy informed that cooperation in areas of agriculture, water, defence, food industry, science and technology, trade and innovation would be on the top of agenda during the visit and various MoUs could be signed in these sectors. He will also attended memorial services for the victims of the Mumbai terror attacks at the iconic Taj Hotel and the Nariman House.

"I want you to think about how you would feel if (the press) were trampling all over your children with unmitigated cruelty". The Israeli ambassador to India, however, said the vote would not affect bilateral relations, which are "much stronger than one vote at the United Nations".

The vast majority came from Eritrea and Sudan and many said they fled war and persecution as well as economic hardship, but Israel treats them as economic migrants.

"We have landed in India".
