I can't see why would there be a need to agree about those issues in order to form a political-ethnic-spiritual alliance.
For a political allience, you don't need much, only a common enemy,
I think that such thought is dangerously wrong. Contrary to what many people believe, the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my ally.
Many European nationalists, being anti-zionist, believe that the Muslims are good allies against the Jews. That's a deadly mistake.
Even Jews can make some kind of temporary alliance with hindus too. A jew and a euro-pagan would have the same chances, no discrimination is there between the two for hindus.
Well, for a start, much of the religious intolerance that exists in the world comes from Judaism. Today, Jews are religiously tolerant and yes, they can be allies against Islam; however, their God is, after all, the same of the Christians and the Muslims, while the Gods of the Europagans have a common root in common with the Hindus'.
Culturally(mainly because of islam) indians feel more closer to middle-eastern world-view than they do to an european pagan one.
I really doubt that.
As for a long lasting spiritual connection, you need to agree on or find similarities in some of these religious philosophies, because without it, we would only have a temporary allience. And both groups would go their own ways afterwards. You should remember, There is a spiritual understanding, a similar religious world between lets say a japanese Zen buddhist and lingayat hindu living in bangalore. The same can't be said for surviving european traditions and modern hinduism today.
Can you give examples of those spiritual connections?
