re: comment 29 -- I find the comparison always instructive, as I think partition set the scene for how it all unfolded in I/P. I wish people would view the two more analogously. The coverage here in UK during 60 year independence celeb recently was eye-opening, especially to contrast the various diasporas here - while the one were busy fighting about boycotts of Israel, the other were having reasonable conversations about the horrors of partition! Substantively: is there mandatory consription in India? If it's voluntary then, arguably, same position obtains in Israel. (Also what about the Druze?) It would be interesting to see comparisons between the two eg: what percentage of Indian Muslims serve in Indian army? Is there any influence of membership in dissenting sects?
