And When You Thought India Couldn't Get Any Cooler

I had a few minutes to look over the Times today and was reading about the horrific massacre in Mumbai. However, I was able to glean something I didn't know about India, the world's largest democracy:

India has never persecuted Jews. Of all of the countries on the planet, how many have not oppressed or repressed their Jewish community. And Jews have been on the Subcontinent for over two thousand years.

What a good record:

“This is the first time when a Jew has been targeted in India because he is a Jew,” said Jonathon Solomon, a Mumbai lawyer and president of the Indian Jewish Federation. “The tradition of the last thousand years has been breached."

So God bless India again. We're pulling for you.
