In the 1960’s America’s Jews provided indispensable help to America’s black community, by helping to get the Civil Right Act passed in 1964. Today, Israel’s Jews are providing indispensable help to black people in Africa as well. In fields such as medicine, security, agriculture, and water, Israel’s assistance has saved the lives of millions of people across the continent of Africa.
That is why it is an utter disgrace for civil rights icon John Lewis to co-sponsor the pro-BDS (boycott the Jews) resolution against Israel, at the behest of the jihad caucus. Lewis is aligning with people who represent black slave masters, murders, and rapists. It shows that John Lewis is not only a corrupt fraud, but he is also a blithering idiot.
Israel has saved the lives of more black people in the last three years than John Lewis and the entire far-Left Congressional Black Caucus could ever dream of doing in their entire lifetimes.
Top 22 ways Israel aided Africa in last three years
In the years since then, the Foreign Ministry’s MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation, has not only kept that promise, with myriad projects primarily in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan and Uganda, but private Israeli companies and nonprofit organizations have also pitched in.
Israel21C, Abigail Klein Leichman, July 18, 2019:
As ISRAEL21c has reported, companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes have lent their expertise and people-power to improve life in Africa. To top this off, Israeli agencies such as IsraAID consistently send relief teams to alleviate food and medical emergencies in countries including Kenya and South Sudan.
MASHAV Director of Policy Planning Ilan Fluss tells ISRAEL21c that as a small country of only eight million people, Israel can’t invest as much in African aid as larger countries can. However, measuring impact in terms of results puts Israel in a singularly impressive light. “We are constantly making more programs and more partnerships,” he says.
Two new projects were announced this year: Grand Challenges Israel (GCI) and the Israeli-German Africa Initiative.
GCI is part of a global program to support technological and innovative approaches to public health and food security in developing countries. Israeli researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs can apply for GCI grants to tackle problems in public health and food security, and introduce their innovations to this growing market.
