The Tribe of Shimon

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Israel’s President Shimon Peres donned tribal gear for his meeting with Osei Tutu II, king of the Ashanti Empire, West Africa, at the President’s residence in Jerusalem on Sunday.

If only they could keep him in these very colorful meetings which his predecessors used to engage in as the core of their service, and leave him no room for unhelpful comments on real things, like the Levy committee.

At 88 years of age, Peres is the world’s oldest democratically elected head of state. He was sworn into office on July 15, 2007, for a seven-year term. That means he has a little less than two years to go.

Keep those folks from exotic places coming!

Israel, UN, Worried about Growing Hizbollah Base in West Africa

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor warned the UN Security Council Tuesday that Hizbollah was increasing its power base in western Africa. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed his own concern about dangerous ties between the Lebanese terror group and African crime organizations.

Ambassador Prosor added: “Israel is particularly concerned over Hezbollah’s use of the area as a base of terror operations. Criminal initiatives bolster Hizbollah’s efforts to create sleeper-cells in the area. The world can’t stand idly by – this endangers more than just Africa but innocent lives the world over, as we have seen in New Delhi, Tbilisi and Bangkok.”
