African states say they will follow Trump in moving their embassies to Jerusalem

Africa is really blossoming. And Trump will do down in history as one of the great presidents who advanced freedom.

African states may follow Trump Jerusalem embassy move: Tanzania’s speaker

“Whatever Israel wants, we in Ghana will go by that, because that is essentially an internal decision”

While the Trump administration has been hit with a barrage of warnings that is stands to throw the Middle East into chaos if it recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the possible move has garnered support among Israel’s allies in Africa.

In interviews with i24NEWS on Tuesday, parliamentary leaders from Tanzania and Ghana visiting Israel to celebrate their collaboration as part of the “Power Africa” initiative, expressed support for an American policy shift on the holy city.

Speaker of the National Assembly of Tanzania, Job Ndugai, began his interview by emphasizing the importance of being in Jerusalem, where the Israeli parliament sits, and later expressed his outright support of Israel’s capital as an appropriate place for foreign embassies.

“It is a very commendable decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I believe it will be followed suit by several African countries, Tanzania included, to move said quarters from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, because we believe where the parliament is — I am a speaker of parliament — then the government should be there and embassies should be there too.”

When asked about the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the speaker of Ghana’s parliament Aaron Mike Oquaye also affirmed that country’s support for Israel on the issue, saying, “whatever Israel wants, we in Ghana will go by that, because that is essentially an internal decision.”

Israel annexed Jerusalem after its victory in the 1967 Six Day War, and sees the city as its undivided capital. However the Palestinians covet the Arab-majority eastern parts of the city as the capital of their hoped-for future state.

When questioned on appeals from the Palestinian Authority and their supporters to disavow support for Israel, the senior Tanzanian MP said, “we see no harm in having relations with Israel, actually we see very many benefits in having been closer and closer with Israel.”

His views where echoed by Oquaye, who said that the West African state, one of West Africa’s rising economies, strongly supports of Israel and is keen to deepen economic relations, as there was “not much [economic] cooperation” in the past.

Oquaye added, “Nevertheless, Israel is quite active in my country Ghana in areas of agriculture, scientific areas, and other development. But we are looking forward to a time when there will be a deeper activity between Ghana and Israel. We offer a lot of opportunities,” referring to Ghana’s abundant natural resources, including gold, diamond, bauxite, cocoa, and now oil.

Referring to Palestinian pleas to the broader African Union, Oquaye acknowledged “there have been attempts to seek support, nevertheless I believe that there are strong historical ties between Israel and Ghana”, also mentioning how Christians in Africa believe in Israel as the predominant regional power.

During Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip last week to Africa for the swearing-in of Kenya’s president, he met with the presidents of African states Gabon, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Botswana and Namibia, and with the Prime Minister of Ethiopia.

Israel sees rising African economies as potential bountiful new markets, and has reportedly signed a swathe of lucrative arms deals with several countries on the continent.

Netanyahu declared his intention to seek observer status for Israel at the African Union, viewing African countries as potential allies, particularly at the United Nations and other international bodies.

The commitment from the African nations marks a significant change from the 1960’s, when the Arab-Israeli conflict drove a wedge in their relations with the Jewish state.

Following wars between Israel and its neighbors in 1967 and 1973, North African nations led by Egypt put pressure on sub-Saharan African states to cut ties with Israel, which many did.

Relations were not helped by Israel’s friendship with the apartheid regime in South Africa before it fell in 1994.

      • Theodre Hartrich

        Its to bad that he can’t ban Muslims maybe next year.

    • Suresh

      Its a bold move. It will make it difficult to get Arab allies to accept the move. And make Russia, china move closer to them.

      But Pressure to do so should be used as stick to palestinians behave. if they don’t, tell them US will recognize Jerusalem as capital .

      But we must thank this Airlines that decided to kick out this jihadi’s ass for trying to impose sharia law in Aircraft by using AL-taqiya http://tinyurl.com/y782l6r8

      Its Hilarious ! That is how you use the law and not bow down to these obama hellhounds from dictating what they want to infidels.

      • Nefarious420

        The muslims will commit terrorist acts just the same if Trump doesn’t declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel, terrorism and rape is their DNA

        • Suresh

          Its giving them a one last chance. if they continue. then the move is justified because the jihadi did not keep their side of the deal. so they can’t blame anyone else.

          Just shifting without offering such a deal will only give them victimhood drama points and make it difficult to deal with Arab allies who will see it as unilateral imposition.

          • Nefarious420

            last chance for what? to kill more Jews? Have they not killed enough Jews already?

          • Suresh

            Kill whom all muslim ? Lost your mind ?

          • Nefarious420

            The muslims have been trying to wipe out Jews since Muhammad, and have never ceased in their quest, how many more chances should they get?

      • Midnattsol

        With Turkey being radicalized and Saudi Arabia on the edge of civil war, “Arab Ally” is becoming more of an oxymoron. Trump should not only strengthen ties with Israel, but also these African states.

    • Howard Lee

      Only the African from America think he’s racist.

        that is a great line. I love it

      • Alex

        Africans and African Americans should recall that African in Arabic languages means SLAVE. It is Arabs who have enslaved, raped and sold into slavery millions of Africans for many hundreds of years! They continue their genocidal activities everywhere in Africa killing Christians every day by hundreds, enslaving African young girls as their concubines in disgusting harems. Africans should spew out Arab invaders and scum from their land as they did with white colonial powers.

        • Faye Linton

          I agree Alex. Plus, Africans are being sold even now. People don’t do their homework but listen/read fake news. I’ve known about fake news since a teenager. I’m now 74 and fake news stil abounds. Get your news NOT from commentators but from the ‘horses’ mouth, so to speak. Don’t hear/read what I did not say.

    • charliematerne

      I think its just that no one wanted to be first

    • Up Huff

      They’ll try to turn Africa into another right wing conservative white conspiracy.
      And then tell us all how “white” Africa has become.

        western europe is a lost cause, no point in paying any attention to it, as it will be conforming to whatever line its islamic masters tell it to.

  • hinckleybuzzard

    Trump has called the world’s bluff! EU has fainting spells worrying about “public opinion” and some nonexistent “peace process.” Africa owes nothing to these degraded states, when Israel offers so much more. This is Trump’s world Leadership in action.

    • NYgal

      Europe is not worried about the ‘peace process’ they just hate Jews… sorry, Israelis.
      Let’s see what Trump actually does. Jerusalem a Jewish City, a capital of Israel, who would have thought – such a revolutionary thought, not.

  • Michelle

    Africa is starting to show that they do have a clue unlike the milksop west.

    Trump is going to do it!
    Thank God for President Trump.
    He is truly trying to keep his promises with much resistance. Hang in there.

    • It did not come without a year’a worth of nagging him to follow through on that promise.

      NOW, Trump must fire Rex Tillerson and the rest of the liberal losers operating against both the President and the American people.

  • SRN99

    Islamists have never recognized the existence of Israel. The free world should destroy them instead of pleasing them

    • NYgal

      Frankly, they only recognize Spain because it suits them, for now.
      Muslims don’t believe that people who were their dhimmis once should have their freedom.

  • NYgal

    Once upon the time, in the 1960s, Israeli experts, having successfully farmed arid land in Israel, were teaching their farming and irrigation techniques in Africa. After the 6-Day War, wealthy oil countries had stepped in with buckets of bribe oil money to persuade African leaders to break off relations with Israel. It had worked beautifully for the corrupt leaders, worse so for the fast growing and starving African masses.
    Perhaps Africans have learned a valuable lesson.

    • John Flynn

      “…fast growing and starving…..” is an oxymoron! The masses SHOULD have been held to about 900 calories/day. That’s approx subsistence level.

  • Drew the Infidel

    The answer becomes obvious but you have to ask yourself, “Why would supposed friendly nations like Saudi Arabia seek to drive a wedge between the US and its only proven ally and democracy in the Middle East?” Answer with another question, “Which countries celebrated 9/11?” and you are getting somewhere.

  • James Stamulis

    Trump and Bibi show what real leadership can do as both men have been giving real help to African nations in battling terrorism.

  • Up Huff

    If God is for me, who can stand against me? (Romans 8:31)
    Interesting how the African Nations are gathering with Israel. Especially after one of their own, Barack, tried so hard to turn them against Israel. And America as well.
    Time for him to go back their on his hands and knees and beg forgiveness, not kiss rings/butts.
    There are the naysayers, the future fuel for Hell, but His Word IS the Word and stands forever.
    Our 1st Amendment is one of their strongest defenses (those naysayers), for it gives them their absolute right to their speaking their minds and me the absolute right to laugh by %#& off listening to their claptrap.
    Believe or not believe, that is one’s own, personal choice. Trying to make you believe otherwise ought to tell you all you need to know about them.

  • Andrew Sears

    God bless you Africa. together we can rid our lands of these muslim terrorists

    • Joy Daniels Brower

      The African nations have a VERY big (Muzzie) problem, but maybe with a little “boost” from the IDF (and the blessing of Pres. Trump!), they will have the (military) help to put out all those pisslamic fires!

  • hank

    This is what the left does when they are out smarted. They call you racist, they call you homophobe, they call anti-abortionist when in true light you are “Pro-Life”. They can’t handle truth. That distorts the whole picture of being a leftist or a socialist. They must use smear tactics to distort what they can’t fight which is God, justice and truth.
    Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ Himself, “what is truth?” Christ told him straight out, I Am the Truth, the Light and the Way. Forget islam and the false prophet. Israel is Jerusalem and not the palestine islamist.
