Israel’s reconnection to African countries, in counter-terrorism, clean-water technology, green-energy, internet-connections, medicine and agriculture has the Palestinians enlisting the Arab League to ‘warn them.’
• “Israel is trying to enlist African support for its policies at the Palestinians’ expense,” says representative.

Concerned by the increasingly warm relations between Israel and African nations and Israel’s bid to rejoin the African Union as an observer state, the Palestinians have asked the Arab League to hold an emergency session.
The league is set to meet in Cairo next Monday to discuss the matter.
Palestinian representative Jamal Shobaki explained Thursday why he urged the Arab League to convene the emergency meeting. “Israel is trying to enlist the support of African countries for its policies, at the expense of African countries’ support on the Palestinian issue,” he told reporters.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently took part in a summit of West African nations in Liberia’s capital of Monrovia, using the trip to try and garner African support for Israel at the U.N. and other international forums.

Shobaki said further that Israel and a number of African countries were planning an African-Israeli conference in Togo at the end of October 2017.
“African countries need to know that warming relations between them and Israel will harm the Palestinians’ interests and reinforce Israel’s apartheid policy against the Palestinians,” Shobaki declared. He called on the African countries that have been invited to the conference to decline the invitation.
