“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story — those He redeemed from the hand of the foe, those He gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.” (Psalm 107:2–3)
Traveling to far away land, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a 4 day trip to Africa just days ago. He traveled to Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, and Ethoipia broadening Israel's diplomatic strategy and building a more stronger tie with African and Arab Leaders in that region.
He is the first Israeli prime minister to visit sub-Saharan Africa in almost 30 years.
“The multilateral effect will take time, but it has begun,” Netanyahu said Friday after returning from his trip. “I don’t think it’s a journey of 1,000 miles, but we have definitely crossed the first mile. I see momentum being built.”
Before Netanyahu’s trip, he sought to gain support from the various African nations that are a part of the United Nations assembly, which consistently has passed resolutions that single out Israel.
Netanyahu gained the support for the reinstatement of Israel’s observer status at the African Union (AU).
He said that Israel’s position at the AU would “have a very considerable effect regarding Israel’s international relations in the future.”
