Netanyahu Extends Recognition to South Sudan
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/7/11 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 07/10/2011 10:48:24 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced at Sunday’s cabinet meeting that Israel recognizes the newly declared country of South Sudan. “Yesterday, a new state was born, South Sudan,” he said. “I hereby announce that Israel recognizes the Republic of South Sudan. We wish it success. This is a peace-seeking country and we would be pleased to cooperate with it in order to ensure its development and its prosperity. Greetings to South Sudan.”

South Sudan broke off from Sudan following years of persecution of its population -- which is mostly Christian and pagan -- by the Muslim North. Some analysts therefore see it as a natural candidate for diplomatic cooperation with Israel, which also suffers from its Muslim neighbors. South Sudan expressed interest in such ties even before declaring independence.

Bibi must have gotten my letter. The Organization of Near and Far Eastern Minorities (OONAFEM? Nah. Better acronym needed) is forming before our eyes. Next recognize Kurdistan, strengthen ties with Armenia, India, Christians in Bethlehem and Lebanon, perhaps also the Balukhi resistance and student groups in Iran. Will they name a doctrine after me?

I would move fast to reach the Christians in Bethlehem - their population is decreasing rapidly.

The largest Christian church there is Episcopal, making up half of the population. I hope this division keeps them safe from the oppressors in the north.

Big difference, the Christians will not threaten death to the Jews, unlike the Muslims.

I know that this will sound ridiculous but I believe that Christian sub-Sahara could save us all. Here we have a group of peiple that are becoming fervently Christian that are poor as churchmice thar have a grudge against muslims. Israel coyld arm them and support them in the takeover and conversion of mualim countrries such as Sudan, Egypt, and ultimately, Saudi Arabia.

Israel provides the hardware and expertise while the Aficans supply the boots on the hround and the staying power. Bovody in their right minds would be pushed back to starvation.

Any feedback on this idea?

Good move, Bibi.

I am sure our muzzie loving president will recognize South Sudan the first thing Monday morning. In addition he will by executive order make foreign ad money available for the new country to buy defensive surplus military weapons from the US at reduced prices so they can defend their borders and homes.

In addition I predict that our Secretary of State will be accompanied by her muzzie lover to South Sudan to open a US embassy and negotiate a mutual defense treaty there before the week is out.

They’ll either learn to make common cause against a voracious enemy, or they can perish with their contempt of us intact. What would Jesus do;-?

Absolutely. It was predictable, too.

Just managing to hold their own against the Muslim aggressors would be progress. World opinion cannot be relied on, because all the Moose Limbs have to do is mount a major onslaught during Super Bowl night, and nobody in the US will notice, and the Europeans will show their usual courage and honesty/sarc. Israeli advice and help, however, could make a big difference.

South Sudan has oil. They can afford to buy weapons and technical support to defend their stuff.

Surprised that Israel beat the US in recognizing a democratic (major election in January to vote for independence) strategic country to counterbalance the Chinese, Libyan and Iranian influence in Africa.

Real surprised. Bet we hear from 0bama on the Monday news ...

that’s not how spineless worms think. They see an opportunity to gain easy favors from the muslims by denouncing the jews.

I'd also look at forming an alliance with Somaliland. This breakaway republic has been independent from the rest of Somalia since 1991 and has been one of the few stable countries in the Horn of Africa since then. Although their government is not recognized by any nation, Somaliland’s military has been a strong ally in combating terrorism in the region and also fighting the pirates that are based out of Somalia proper or Puntland, another semi-autonomous region (a number of the captured pirates are “police officers” from Puntland.

By all means. Anything that fragments the Islamic empire further. “Two peoples, two states,” after all, and if they’re stable that’s icing on the cake.
