In country after country on the continent of Africa, Israel is being embraced like never before, because of the invaluable humanitarian aid Israel provides. However, in the United States, the hard-left Congressional Black Caucus is not embracing Israel. Instead, the CBC is attacking Israel relentlessly to obtain America’s Jihad vote. Absolutely shameful.
“Israel opens first embassy in Rwanda,” by Tovah Lazaroff, Jerusalem Post, April 1, 2019:
Israel opened its first embassy in Rwanda as part of its drive to improve ties with African countries.
“I’m certain that the opening an Israeli embassy in Rwanda will elevate within a few years our ties to Rwanda and the continent as a whole to a much higher level,” Foreign Ministry Director-General Yuval Rotem said.
Rotem along with Israel’s new Ambassador to Rwanda Ron Adam are in Rwanda’s capital of Kigali for the embassy’s opening. Adam already presented his credentials to Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame in February.
In the coming months, Rwanda’s national airline, Rwandair, is slated to begin direct flights to Israel.
Israel’s new embassy in Rwanda is its 11th on the African continent, where Israel has full diplomatic relations with 41 out of 46 sub-Saharan African countries, according to Israel’s Foreign Ministry.
Israel and Rwanda initially established diplomatic ties in 1962, but Rwanda along with African states severed those ties after the 1973 Yom Kippur war.
