Africans seek Israeli help battling Muslims

Sunday, February 14, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

In several parts of Africa today, Arab and African Muslims are threatening to overrun areas they did not previously control, or have already done so and are persecuting the "infidels" who live there.

Kenya has thus far resisted the Muslim advance, but is constantly threatened by the jihad occurring in neighboring Somalia.

Last week, Kenya's public security minister, Prof. George Saitoti, visited Jerusalem to request Israeli assistance in dealing with the Muslim threat.

"The jihad is taking over Somalia and threatening to take over Kenya and all of Africa," Saitoti told his Israeli counterpart, Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich. "No one is more experienced than [Israel] in fighting internal terror. I request that you help us in this matter. In knowledge, in training."

Israel and Kenya have a long history of friendly relations.
