Is Zambia preparing to betray Israel again?

KK-with-Sata

Kaunda and Sata

Zambia’s current president Michael Sata 0n 13 June 2013, sent a secretive letter to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, through his minister of Justice Wynter Kabimba.

The full contents of the letter are not yet disclosed and may never be but sources at the Zambian ministry of foreign Affairs say, in that letter, Sata denounced Israel and pledged Zambia’s total support and commitment to the Palestinians.

Kabimba, who delivered the message on behalf of Sata remained in Palestine for a number of days and envisaged development cooperation between Zambia and the Palestinians.

The question that Christians are asking is whether Zambia has again started the process to betray Israel again?

During the decades that Kenneth Kaunda ruled Zambia, the relationship with Israel was bad and eventually severed. Zambia, or more correctly, its leaders hated Israel. During Kaunda’s reign, Zambia always voted d against Israel at the International scene.

Israel, for its part has always tried to be friendly with Zambia. At the birth of Zambia in 1964, then Israeli Prime minister Golda Meir was in Lusaka to celebrate.

But Kaunda cut ties with Israel in in 1973 in preference for Moslems and Palestine.

Kenneth Kaunda terminated all contracts between the two countries, as well as confiscating Jewish properties in Zambia.

Before Kaunda betrayed Israel, the Jews helped Kaunda in his ‘Go back to the land’ policy by establishing settlements such as Kafulafuta.

In 1966 he asked Israel to send experts who could conduct a survey and prepare a regional plan for settlements in the Copperbelt. The Israelis remained in Zambia until 1969, formed a group of settlers, and trained instructors to help run the agricultural settlement.

A second team was sent in 1969 and remained until 1970, during which time it founded two settlements, one at Kafulafuta and the other at Kafubu, each including several villages with about 500 family units. The settlers built chicken cooperatives and raised corn and vegetables, while a regional center supplied them with general services.

The third Israeli team arrived in 1970 and directed agricultural production and marketing, and also dealt with matters of education, health, and culture. The project made it possible for the farmers in the region to enjoy a reasonable standard of living, and was supposed to serve as an example for other projects in the country.

When Kaunda  visited the project in 1971 he declared that it was an achievement that every country would be proud of, and that Zambia was close to finding the solution it had been searching for since its independence.

The agricultural project was a showcase for the government’s agrarian policies and a source of pride, which it displayed to foreign visitors.

When Zambia cut off diplomatic relations with Israel in 1973, Israel recalled the eight-man team of experts running the project.

If you want to know how the project has turned into a pile of neglected rubbish, just go to the area.

As late as 1987, Kaunda maintained his hatred for Israel. On November 29, 1987, while in some Muslim country, he went further by saying that Zambian would not recognize Israel.

STORELLA-KAUNDA

Storrela and Kaunda on USA day 2013

Kaunda told a Saudi newspaper Okaz, that there was no difference between Israel and the “racist regime of South Africa.”

But Kaunda was kicked out of power in 1991. The new president Fredrick Chiluba renewed ties with Israel.

But Today, Kaunda seems to be having his way again through Zambia’s current president, a former official in Kaunda’s one-party dictatorship.

Michael Sata’s regime PF has shown a well-orchestrated policy to align itself to the same countries that Kaunda loved.

While Barack Obama’s representative in Zambia Mark Storrela, is busy laughing with and praising the Michael Sata regime; the Zambian regime is fast and furiously building connections with the countries that fall within what George Bush jr referred to as the ‘Axis of Evil’.

It is also worthy noting that just a few weeks ago, president Obama declared USA’s unbrokreable bond with Israel. See here 

Just a few weeks before Sata sent letters to Palestine in which he is said to have denounced Israel.

    but why sent a secretive letter to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abba???????????????????????
    Why should we pray for Israel? Does the Bible instruct us to? Should we also be praying for the peace of Jerusalem like the Old Testament prophets sometimes did? Should a Christian be obligated to pray for Israel?

    In Psalm 122:6 it says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.”

    Heard of that hottie who wanted those diamonds and pearls? She slept with older men, married and diseased… She was called a gold digger. Her ending was sad.

    Economic success comes from The Creator, NOT the created.

    The world economy is in the hands of the Jews, for the info of all who are spiritually blind and ignorant…America and Europe prospered for their support for God’s chosen nation but are now crumbling for their double standards…no single American President has gone to the white house without the support of the Jews…no one has lasted without their blessings…so it has been,is, and will continue to be with anyone who messes up with Yahweh’s covenant people…Zambian flag must have Holy Bible, three White Doves (to represent The Holy Trinity),the Red Cross (to represent our salvation and New Eternal Covenant with God)and some skyblue colours (to represent the amazing Love and Grace of God).This is to match with our national anthem and constitution.

      Don’t believe the “yahweh’s covenant people” nonsense. Jews are shrewd and know how to make money – they are therefore very powerful, like you said. Not some Yahweh BS.

      DONT YOU BE FOOLISH. ISRAEL NEVER SUPPORTED THE LIBERATION OF AFRICANS FROM SLAVERY AND COLONIALISM. PALESTINE ALWAYS HAS . SINCE WHEN DID ISRAEL BECOME OUR FRIEND??? THEY WERE CHILUBAS FRIENDS IN HIS CRUSADE TO GANNER A THIRD TERM THROUDH USE OF BLIND CHRISTIANS. FORGET NOT THAT ISRAEL IS NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION. NO WONDER HITLER ALMOST CLEARED THE SCUM OFF THE EARTH COS OF THEIR UNREPENTANT WAYS.
      BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY. EVEN AMERICA FARED VERY POORLY IN THE FREEDOM STRUGGLES OF AFRICANS, SUPPORTING MERCENARIES LIKE SAVIMBI, TOGETHER WITH SOUTH AFRICA(then), KILLING LUMUMBA AND SUPPORTING MOBUTU ETC, THE LIST IS ENDLESS. WAKE UP FELLOWS AND DONT BE BLINDED BY THE RELIGIOUS DOGMA WHICH EVEN ISREALITES AVOID.

      • Mwape  June 19, 2013 at 19:04

  9. Blessings chipego  June 17, 2013 at 23:22

    Each day proffesy in the bible is fulfilled. You love peace, pray for Israel as we wait for the new world order of 666. Have you ever seen any sure peace in moslem loving countrieas? Only Jesus Christ is the giver of peace. Take it or leave it, the world order starts from the spiritual realm. U can call it an ideology but its real.

    Spot the Difference.

    1. The leadership of Kaunda was diabolical.

    2. The leadership of Sata is diabolical.

    Israel’s boarders are stated in the bible. Whoever hates Israel is of Satan.

      What the hell is wrong with you people? I can’t believe you are so uninformed, reading the Bible and taking it literally. Well I have news for you:

      JEWS HATE BLACK PEOPLE

      Yes, the Chosen people you adore hate you. Try to leave Zambia at least once, you’ll get to know the truth.

  14. Peezeedy  June 17, 2013 at 18:27

    Israel is a country behind all the developed nations in the world including the emerging economies like India. Zambia cannot afford to soar the relationship with the Jewish state. Any one or country working and supporting the cause of Israel have prospered in their life. President Sata’s letter to the Palestines marks the start of His down fall cause in the constitution we reaffirmed the Christian clause as a country that includes being a peace with Israel. This shouldn’t be a surprise since our president is Catholic and we all know the stance of the catholics towards Israel. Long live Israel and the Moshud community
    That says the Lord”i will bless these who bless israel and curse these who curse you….”so Zambians should be ready for a blessng or curse.

    • FuManchu  June 17, 2013 at 20:43

      Indeed right! Kaunda severed relations with Israel and the result is a failed Kafue Town Development plan

      Go get a beer instead of this ridiculous ranting

  15. MORDECAI  June 17, 2013 at 18:18

    There’s no denying that the Jewish State has inflicted pain and suffering on the Palestinian people and that Ramallah is one huge prison for the Arab population there. The Israelis have literally built siege works around it and won’t allow entry or exit without stringent and humiliating scrutiny of the Palestinians.

    Israel has a history of close collaboration with the Apartheid regimes of RSA and propped up the racist nation’s nuclear ambitions which Mandela discontinued at Independence.

    The Jewish state also offered the racists intelligence and other support against the guerrilla Armies in the front line States.

    The Ethiopian Jews or Falashas in Israel have faced increasing xenophobic attacks from the general jewish orthodox groupings who question their Jewish purity and claim.

    Though Israel has advanced nuclear weapons,it has refused to confirm or deny its nuclear capability and may be planning to attack Iran’s suspected nuclear sites after President Ahmejenadad threatened to remove the Jewish nation from the map.

    My point. Hate or like Israel, the State seems to have a divine hand on its head if you consider these few examples.

    In 1967, Israel defeated a combination of Arab armies that sought to destroy it. The war lasted a mere 7 days!

    Israel airborne commandos made a daring rescue of Jewish hostages that had been kidnapped by terrorists at Entebbe airport in Uganda. The ground assault was led by Colonel Yoni Netanyahu,the elder brother of the current prime minister of Israel, Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu. The command post led by a General, was a Boeing 737 thousands of feet above Entebbe. All but one hostage were rescued. Old Dora Bloch remained behind after she had been taken ill to a Kampala Hospital while Col. Yoni Netanyahu was killed after being picked out by a Ugandan sniper. All hostage takers were annihilated by the Israel commandos.

    Kenya under Mzee Jomo Kenyatta had agreed to offer logistical support such as permission to fly in the Kenyan airspace and refueling stops of Israel aircraft.

    There have been debates as to why Kenya has recorded successes in various fronts while Uganda has never known peace and real progress. Your guess’ is as good as mine. Zambia should tread cautiously.

    Israel can is an apartheid regem!

  17. Ravlomanana  June 17, 2013 at 17:30

    International relations should not be based on ideology, but on national interest what we can get through our relationships through other countries. This is how western nations operate and have prospered. What have we gotten from our support for South Africa, nothing. Zambians in South Africa are looked down upon, called makwerekwere. The only people idolized there are KK and Kalusha Bwalya. What are we going to get from befriending Palestine, nothing except maybe tactics in suicide bombing. Relations on with Israel on the other hand will mean technology transfer especially in agriculture. Let us learn to look at our national interest and not ideology!

    They are blessed those who pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    • Bemba will vote Tonga  June 18, 2013 at 12:50

      You are making me very angry. Ukumyanga abasungu pamatako! Yaba!

      Pray for Zambia, if you must pray. The people in Isreal consider blacks less than animals, and there you go praying for them! That Bible has caused many problems in this world.

      Wake up, fool!

  19. kalaluka  June 17, 2013 at 15:20

    Israel is not a God friendly nation, been there, seen it all. The fuckers are racist, they want control at any cost & kill to get what they want. It is the same Israel that killed many of our brothers & sisters in the liberation struggle in South Africa. Today they kill many innocent poor civilians, reason why Hitler said,’ I am not killing all of them, so generations can see how bad these people are!. So the author of this article would do well to be unbiased, hatred for PF should not mean loving the Zionists!

    • Yaba  June 17, 2013 at 17:48

      You are a RACIST yourself.

      Why do you hate Israel?

      • kaponyas!!!  June 17, 2013 at 20:49

        Why do you hate the Palestinians?

      • Bemba will vote Tonga  June 18, 2013 at 12:52
