Published on Jul 3, 2016Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be jetting into the country Monday evening for a state visit, the first by an Israeli leader to Africa in 50 years. So what will his trip be all about and what is in it for Kenya? Plus what are his views about some key issues affecting the country? I have just returned from Jerusalem in Israel which i conducted an interview with Prime Minister Netanyahu where i began by asking him why he had opted to come to Africa- and specifically Kenya- at this time.

Energy Does Grow On Trees, As Israelis Design First Solar Energy eTree
Moment Research Consultancy | December , 2 2017
Moment Resesrch Consultancy recently reported on the final project of Bezalel Academy of Arts student Tal Bahar entitled ‘Charge Yourself.’ When we stumbled on the idea for an urban solar-powered, phone-charging bench, we just couldn’t get enough of the environmentally-friendly and mobile technology-driven idea, until we came across the eTree. No longer in the realm of academic projects, the eTree is the brainchild of artist Yoav Ben-Dov who was commissioned to construct the urban tree habitat by the Israeli solar energy company Sologic. So what’s so magical about the idea of the eTree? Continue reading
Slavery scandal overshadows EU-Africa summit
Abidjan – Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara demanded action on Wednesday to combat migrant slave trading in Libya, as the issue dominated a Europe-Africa summit meant to focus on long-term growth and stability.
Summit host Ouattara lashed slavery as a “wretched drama which recalls the worst hours of human history.”
“I would like to appeal to our sense of responsibility to take all urgent measures to put an end to that practice, which belongs to another age,” he said, opening the gathering of 55 African Union and 28 European Union nations in Ivory Coast’s economic capital. Continue reading
AU, EU summit winds up after anti-slavery initiative
Abidjan – A summit gathering European and African leaders from more than 80 countries drew to a close on Thursday with plans for the immediate evacuation of some 3 800 African migrants stranded in Libya.
Wrapping up the summit in the Ivorian capital, a top African Union official said there could be as many as 700 000 Africans trapped in Libya, where many have suffered atrocities and even been sold into slavery.
The two-day summit of the African Union (AU) and European Union (EU) was showcased as a project to boost development in Africa as it faces a population crunch. Continue reading
Somalia has to work with Israel and be bilateral partners. Most people don’t know that Israel was the first country who recognized Somalia as a country in 1960s when ARAB nations turned their backs to Somalia.
Haddii Farmaajo la kulmo Netanyahu, maxaa ku jaban?
November 30, 2017 – Lugaha ay Israa’iil ku taagan tahay waa Maraykanka, la’aantiisna waa shaki la’aan in aysan jirteen amma ugu yaraan aysan ahaateen dowlad aad u awood badan (super power nation).
Siyaasadda arrimaha dibedda iyo tan gudaha Maraykanka waxaa jaangooya oo jiheeya yahuudda. Dhammaan siyaasiinta Maraykanka oo ay ka mid yihiin-kumase koobna-: Madaxweynaha, Mw. xigeenka, xildhibaannada, guddoomiyaasha goballada iyo xataa xoghayaasha Madaxweynaha (golaha wasiirrada) iyo agaasimiyaasha haddii aysan oggollaanshaha yahuudda haysan ma soo gudbaan.
Siyaasiinta Maraykanka marka ay xil u ordaan waxay isku bajiyaan Yahuudda baad ka soo horjeeddaa ama waxay ku faannaan anigu saaxiib dhow baan la ahay. Sababtuna rejadooda baa ku xidhan. Maraykan iyo Israa’iil waa ul iyo diirkeed. Si kale haddii aan u dhaho Maraykanku waa Yahuud, Yahuudna waa Maraykan.
Yahuuddu ma aha oo kaliya dalka Maraykanku lacagta u badan siiyo ee sidoo kale waa dalka kaliya ee aan la weyddiin sida uu u qorsheeyo gargaarkaas amma waxa u ku qabto. Nus ka mid ah lacagtaas waxay ku soo laabataa dalka Maraykanka iyada oo gacanta u gasha uruurro yahuuda oo danaha Israa’iil u adeega sida: AIPAC oo lacagtaa ku soo saarta siyaasiinta dalka Maraykanka xilalka uga ordaaya oo Guriga Cad iyo kan Capitol Hill (Guriga Baarlamaanka) ka mid yihiin.
Haddaba akhristow sidaa aad aragto haddii aan waxba u dhexeyn Yahuudda iyo Maraykanka, Maxay tahay sababta aan midna u colaadin, midna u jecelnahay in aan xirriir saaxiibtinnimo oo dhow ula sameysanneynno dal ahaan? Cidda tidhi yaan yahuud wax lagu darsan waa carab. Carabna Masar iyo Sacuudi baa u indho ah iyana si toos ah bay ula macaammillaan.
Soomaaliya hoggaankeedu waxaa laaga fadhiyaa in u jeexo siyaasad arrimo dibeddeed oo aan diin, midab iyo hayb toonna ku dhisneeyn, balse dan qaran sees u tahay.
Call it a comeback: Israel’s grand “return” to Africa
In exchange for development support, Israel wants African votes at international forums. This may prove trickier than it thinks.

This June, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu broke new ground as he became the first non-African leader to speak at the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) summit. During his speech in Monrovia, he declared once again that “Israel is coming back to Africa”. Continue reading

Narendra Modi, primo ministro indiano, con Benjamin Netanyahu
C’era anche una nuova specie di crisantemo, battezzata «Narendra Modi», ad accogliere il primo ministro dell’India al suo arrivo in Israele. Un omaggio al leader e alla cultura indù, che vede in quel fiore un simbolo di lunga vita e ricchezza. Gli israeliani hanno fatto le cose in grande per la prima visita di un premier indiano in carica: i due Paesi si sono sempre guardati con simpatia, se non altro per i comuni nemici musulmani, ma da due campi diversi, quello occidentale per lo Stato ebraico, quello dei «non allineati» per l’India. L’incontro fra Modi e Benjamin Netanyahu, che ieri pomeriggio si sono abbracciati all’aeroporto Ben Gurion con l’energia di due vecchi amici, è l’occasione per forgiare un’alleanza strategica e il leader indiano è stato accolto con onori riservati solo a Donald Trump.

Somalo-Jewshi relations: blasphemy or real politic
July 14, 2016 – These are some of the questions that I pondered while on a family vacation in West Palm Beach, Florida. Is Somalia finally joining the campaign to end the sub-Saharan diplomatic “embargo” of the Jewish state? If so, does this mean Mogadishu under President Hassan and Prime minister Omer has abandoned the Somali National philosophy founded by the SYL that gave primacy social justice and fairness over diplomacy? Is Somalia in the throes of following real politic as opposed to justice, self-determination of oppressed people, and the philosophy of its founding fathers? Is post-civil war Somali State more comfortable to be in bed with the Jewish state as long as rent money can be realized? Continue reading
