NEW DELHI---Hindu nationalist
Narendra Modi is set to become India s
next prime minister, exit polls showed
yesterday, with his opposition party
and its allies forecast to sweep to a par-
liamentary majority in the world s
biggest ever election.
Indian elections are notoriously hard
to call, however, due to the country s
diverse electorate and a parliamentary
system in which local candidates hold
great sway. Pre-election opinion polls
and post-voting exit polls both have a
Modi, of the Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP), has electrified the lengthy contest
with a media-savvy campaign that has
hinged on vows to kickstart India s econ-
omy and create jobs.
Yet much depends on Modi winning
enough seats to form a stable government
that will allow him to push through his
India s staggered voting, spread over
five weeks to reach the country s 815
million voters and move security forces
around its varied terrain, ended yesterday.
Results are due on Friday.
Research group C-Voter predicted 289
seats for the National Democratic Alliance
headed by the BJP, with just 101 seats
for the alliance led by the Congress
party---which would be the ruling party s
worst ever result.
Another poll, by Cicero for the India
Today group, showed the NDA hitting
between 261 and 283 seats.
A majority of 272 is needed to form
a government, although that is often
achieved with outside support from
"We will only know if this Modi wave
has really happened after the election
results," said Praveen Rai, a political ana-
lyst at the Delhi-based Centre for the
Study of Developing Societies (CSDS),
who published a report on exit polls last
month. "It still might be more of a media
wave, a manufactured wave."
Should Modi fall short of a majority
when the results come in on Friday, he
will need to strike a coalition deal with
some of India s increasingly powerful
regional parties. (Reuters)

Jerusalem---Israel s best known
writer, Amos Oz, says that Israelis
behind a wave of hate crimes against
Muslims and Christians are "Hebrew
neo-Nazis," Haaretz newspaper
reported on its Web site Saturday.
It quoted the award-winning author
as saying terms such as "price tag,"
widely used to describe attacks on
Palestinians and others by Jewish
extremists, are sanitised euphemisms.
They are "sweet names for a mon-
ster that needs to be called what it is:
Hebrew neo-Nazi groups," Haaretz
quoted Oz as telling guests Friday at
an event marking his 75th birthday.
He said there was a difference
between perpetrators of such events
in the Jewish state and elsewhere.
"Our neo-Nazi groups enjoy the
support of numerous nationalist or
even racist legislators, as well as rabbis
who give them what is in my view
pseudo-religious justification," Haaretz
quoted him as saying. Earlier Friday,
vandals spray-painted anti-Christian
graffiti on a Jerusalem church, despite
police stepping up security around
religious sites ahead of a visit by Pope
Francis later this month.
"Price tag... King David for the
Jews... Jesus is garbage" was written
in Hebrew on the wall of St George s
Romanian Orthodox church near an
ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood.
Police also said "Death to Arabs"
was found written on a house in the
Old City in east Jerusalem, and
swastikas were scrawled on the wall
of a west Jerusalem apartment. After
Hebrew graffiti reading "Death to Arabs
and Christians and to everyone who
hates Israel" was daubed on its Notre
Dame complex in Jerusalem on Mon-
day, the Roman Catholic church
demanded Israeli action. The Pope s
visit to the region is scheduled to begin
in Jordan on May 24. (AFP)

ROME---A boat crowded with
migrants sank yesterday in the
Mediterranean just beyond Libya s
territorial waters, leaving at least
14 dead, said the Italian Navy, which
helped rescue more than 200 sur-
The Navy said "at the moment 14
bodies have been recovered." There
was no estimate of the number of
possible missing because it wasn t
immediately determined how many
people had been aboard.
The sinking occurred some 100
miles south of the tiny Sicilian island
of Lampedusa north of the Libyan
coast, Italian authorities said. A Navy
frigate and a patrol boat rushed to
the scene along with two Italian
Coast Guard boats and a boat from
the Italian Border Police fleet.
Medical personnel aboard the Navy
boats gave assistance to the sur-
In the past week alone, more than
4,000 migrants have reached Italy s
shores, arriving in smugglers boats.
Many of the boats set out from
Libya s loosely patrolled coast with
migrants who are fleeing wars or
hardship in Syria, Eritrea and else-
