Bennett: Israel to Aid Large Islamic Country in Agriculture

At an International economic forum in Jakarta, the foreign ministers only wanted to hear how Israel can help their respective countries.

Trade and Economy Minister Naftali Bennett announced during a trip to Indonesia that Israel will be providing agricultural assistance to a large Islamic country which has no ties to Israel, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

At the international trade conference, Bennett spoke with Foreign Ministers from dozens of countries including Islamic countries with no ties to Israel.

The goal of many of the discussions was to see how Israeli expertise can be used to assist these countries in increasing their agricultural yields and feed their populations, as well as increasing economic cooperation in general.

Bennett, accompanied by a heavy guard detail, spoke to 157 delegates at the conference, the first Israeli minister to visit Jakarta in 13 years.

During his speech, not a single delegate left the room, and the Palestinian issue was not even mentioned at any of the meetings, according to Bennett.

Bennett said, “The only thing they want to hear from Israel was about developing technology.”

    "Bennett, accompanied by a heavy guard detail, spoke to 157 delegates at the conference, the first Israeli minister to visit Jakarta in 13 years."
    That says it all, the utter stupidity of israel's actions.
    If bennett needs a heavy guard to go begfore molsems to help them feed
    their population then one must ask why? what benefit is this to israel.
    Is this help, delviered under heavy guard in any way going to change
    moslem hositility to Israel? Israel has no moral responsibility to any moslem country, in fact any country that is hostile to it. Unless there is quid pro quo
    Israel should offer no free advice.

  11. Nice Guy says:

    the Arabs/Islamic nations/will take take take from Israel, will not give anything in return…and worse yet…not pay for services and supplies either…and worse yet will simultaneously teach in their schools and on their tv and in their newspapers to hate and kill all Jews and Israelis…..we should INSIST that their schools and newspapers and tvs publish and teach every day that the Jews are helping them….even if its two years….that JEWS/ISRAELIES are the best in the world in technology and were asked by their leaders to help their country and have agreed to improve their countries food sources…AT LEAST the masses should learn to like Jews not hate Jews….and if the countries refuse…Israel should politely say we only save and help those who do NOT hate us and do not teach in their schools and on their newsreports and in their newspapers that they hate us and Jews should be killed and Jews are evil etc etc….and if they get mad and say WE CANT SAY NICE THINGS TO OUR PEOPLE ABOUT JEWS…. then do NOT help them….so they will continue to say dirty jew like before…so what…but they will finally have respect for you…and one day will call you again and AGREE TO YOUR TERMS!

  14. Why go all the way to Jakarta when Palestine is just a stone's throw away?

  15. Anonymous says:

    U can't even cross the boundary & u will be killed, so how u can help palestine? So any of u Jews willing to gamble yr life by helping them, u may do so. But let me remind you Jenika Sharon, the palestinians only want free aid money without sweat because their sweat is reserved to kill Jews.

  16. I don't necessarily have a problem with Israel doing this. However, it depends on the details. If these Islamic countries would like to hire Israel as a paid consultant, that's fine. But, it should not be pro Bono. Israel is offering expertise and know how and just like a private consulting company, Israel should be compensated.

  17. Tamar Alexander says:

    Israel is helping Palestiain agriculture. Point is how much cooperation you get from them.

  18. Anonymous says:

    So-called Palestine only exists to counter Israel. They will never be happy with Israel's existence, other Arab/Muslim countries will get over it and make peace long before the so-called Palestinians accept reality.

  19. Why learn how to fish when you can get the fish for free, right? Why hunt like the lioness when as a jackal, you and your gang can steal it from her when her back is turned. They'll bring money with them, but they're bringing knowledge as well. If I were starving and somebody offered to show me a more productive way of getting food, I wouldn't spit in their face. An MIT student should understand the value of knowledge. And any creature on earth should understand the value of food and the value of maintaining a productive food chain. And surely, when somebody offers you a helping hand, there is a price to be paid when you return the favor with a knife in hand. All people will be held accountable for their actions against others, and just because you've been told they're evil doesn't excuse your actions against them. You are a smart guy if you go to MIT, and smart people like you will be held even more accountable for your words and actions…our words do matter, and we will be held responsible for what we say.

  20. Of course, all those Moslems want from Israel is technology. That is perfectly in accord with Islamic law: make use of anything which strengthens the Islamic community. If Israeli technology is useful for that, they will adopt it. Just like they make use of Israeli technology and medical advances in other areas.

  21. Basha Kline says:

    Well the grass roots are to feed thy executioner and they just may lessen the pain of your demise…! Does one really think they will down their swords for ploughshares?

  22. they asking advice about birth-control? NOT!
