lecture-cum-discussion on “Israel's War Against Hamas Terror Network in Gaza”


VPM’s Centre for International Studies organized a lecture-cum-discussion on “Israel's War Against Hamas Terror Network in Gaza” led by Mrs. Orna Sagiv, Consul General of Israel, Mumbai on February 9th, 2009 at 4.00 p.m. at the Centre’s Conference Room, 2nd floor of VPM’s R.Z. Shah College of Arts, Science and Commerce, Mithagar Rd, Mulund (East), Mumbai 81.

Hon. Director, Prof P.M. Kamath introducing the topic said that Hamas won the elections in June 2007 and became a governing party in Gaza. However, its long standing terrorist moorings did not vanish, it continued to hit at Israeli cities. Can a governing party conduct the terrorist attacks? That is on of the issues. Secondly, Israeli counter- attack against Hamas almost coincided with Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Toiba on Mumbai on 26/11. Obviously there was inescapable comparison between Indian response to terrorism and Israel response.

Consul General made it clear that Israel wants peace and want to avoid conflict. However, its counter-attack against Hamas was in self-defence. It is necessary she said to know the smallness of the Israeli territory that leads to instant impact of rocket attacks launched by Hamas, without leaving civilians any time to move for self-protection. Israeli citizens have lived under constant fear not knowing when the rockets would hit. Hamas has used hospitals, schools, as a hiding place for attacking Israeli cities. It is this factor that provoked Israel to retaliate.

Chairman, Shri N.B.H.Kulkarni presided over the lecture and Dr. R.G. Gidadhubli proposed the vote of Thanks.

મુંબઈ એરપોર્ટ પર દુર્ઘટના ટળી

મુંબઈ (ભાષા), સોમવાર, 9 ફેબ્રુઆરી 2009 ( 15:46 IST )
મુંબઈ એરપોર્ટ પર સોમવારે સવારે એક મોટી દુર્ઘટના સર્જાવાથી બચી. 150 યાત્રીઓને લઈને જઈ રહેલી મુંબઈથી દિલ્લીની ફ્લાઈટ આઈસી 866 જ્યારે ટેક ઑફ માટે તૈયાર હતી ત્યારે ભારતીય નૌસેનાનું એક હેલિકોપ્ટર અચાનક રન વે પર ઉતરી ગયું.

વિમાનના પાયલટની સમજદારીથી તમામ યાત્રી સુરક્ષિત છે. ઘટના જોનારા લોકોના જણાવ્યાનુસાર મુંબઈ-દિલ્લીની ઈંડિયન એર લાઈન્સની ફ્લાઈટ જ્યારે ટેક ઑફ માટે તૈયાર હતી ત્યારે અચાનક વિમાનની સામે નૌસેનાનું એક હેલિકોપ્ટર ઉતરી આવ્યું જેના કારણે પાયલટ કોઈ આગામી પગલું ન ભરી શક્યો. જો તે વિમાન ટેક ઑફ થઈ ગયું હોત તો વિમાનમાં બેસેલા 150 યાત્રી દુર્ઘટનાનો ભોગ બની ગયાં હોત.

હેલિકોપ્ટરમાં રાષ્ટ્રપતિ ન હતી

કહેવામાં આવી રહ્યું છે કે, રાષ્ટ્રપતિના કાફલામાં લાગેલું નૌસેનાનું આ હેલિકૉપ્ટર હતું અને તેમાં રાષ્ટ્રપતિ પ્રતિભા પાટિલ સવાર હતી, પરંતુ બાદમાં રાષ્ટ્રપતિ ભવનથી તેનું ખંડન કરવામાં આવ્યું. મુંબઈ-દિલ્લીની ઈંડિયન એરલાઈન્સની ફ્લાઈટ રન વે પર હતી અને દોઢ કિલોમીટરની ઉડાણ પણ ભરી લીધી હતી ત્યારે પાયલટે જોયું કે, 50 મીટરની દૂરી પર હેલિકૉપ્ટર રોકાઈ ગયું છે. પાયલટે તરત જ બ્રેક લગાવી અને દુર્ઘટના સર્જાતા અટકી ગઈ.
