A "sinister tie-up" between India and Israel?

Long speculated, India launched today Israel's most advanced spy satellite, Tecsar, that transmits images regardless of time and weather conditions. Defence analysts say the satellite will target Iran's programme for nuclear energy (nuclear weapons for some) and thus may be viewed as a "sinister tie-up" between India and Israel against Muslims. This is the second such satellite aimed at Iran after Eros B, launched in April last year by Russia. While American mentors of close Indo-Israeli ties will be happy at this development, will Indian authorities withstand pressure if an offer to launch Iranian spy satellites, such as Mesbah or Sina 1, is made to New Delhi by Tehran?
