The conclusion summarizes the findings of the books and then explores further avenues of research. This chapter explains how one needs to look at India’s Israel policy more like a segmented foreign policy-making process with different actors, levels of analysis, and niched interests. At the political-state level, there has always been an impression of policy continuity, because the Indian government followed its historical and principled pro-Palestine policy to satisfy historically-held ideological principles, domestic constituencies and its Arab and Muslim allies in the region. The new Israel policy compromise is now defined by an emerging ‘coalition’ of technical-military experts who appreciate the Israeli military industry’s unique expertise and assistance, and of domestic political and economic actors who benefit from specialised joint ventures (in irrigation technology for example) with Israeli private actors.
