    How would allowing Israel a seat in the AU help with Nigerian/Biafrian/African state building?

    When did I ever advance the opinion of letting Israel have an AU seat? You seem to be projecting. Earlier, I did note that Israel aided Biafra. But you seem to be transfixed on the idea of Israel gaining an AU seat.
    :ehh:

    If you read "moral outrage or considerations" into my post, then I didn't communiate my main point effectively enough.

    I think what I drew from your post is that Israel does bad things to African peoples such as current Israeli discrimination against Beta Israel and Israel's support of Apartheid South Africa's nuclear program. In the same century, Israel gave arms, money and food to starving Biafrans who were fighting Britain, Egypt, the Soviet Union and of course, Nigeria - all at the same time.

    Moral considerations don't really matter that much to me. The ends justifies the means. It always has in international relations. Those who've sought to operate differently have been rubbed out from this Earth.

    reposted the comment with the comments about israel removed.

    You wrote this in a thread in the locker room

    I didn't address it in the thread, but I have to question how true this is.

    I wrote previously about the nature of how and why Islam and Christianity took root in Africa(among other places)


    I would have to think that this is what is in play here as well. Some of the rank and file people may have others reasons(some spiritual in nature) but the leaders of that community and a good % of the people have to be doing it for the reasons that people adopted Islam and Chrsitianity in the past.....access to resources, institutions, and networks.


    As always, I try to be respectful to the lives of people lost in the ongoing conflict. But from what I've read about the war....Israel wasn't the only country or group of people assisting Biafra, yet I've seen no equal public display of affinty towards those groups as I've seen toward jews, Israel and to judaism.
    Even people who aren't fond of Igbos concede that they are generally intelligent and business minded.


    Adirionally, Jews don't proselytise, as Muslims and Chrisians do, so there isn't an external "pull" factor involved in this conversion of Igbos to Judaism.

    These are business decisions being made,really.

    Personally, I don't see myself converting to Judaism. However, it DOES make sense to scratch the back of the state which helped your people in the past and is currently granting asylum to the foremost leader of your modern-day secessionist movement

    Amplifying Western Disinformation on Rwanda

    By Ann Garrison


    The Great Lie about the Rwandan bloodbath opened the door to a far larger genocide in Congo and justified US military interventions all over the planet.


    “The institutionalization of the ‘Rwandan genocide’ has been the remarkable achievement of a propaganda system sustained by both public and private power.”
