Marking 50 years of diplomatic relations, Israel and Germany launch joint effort to combat poverty in Africa.
Tova Dvorin, February 11, 2014
In honor of 50 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany, the two countries announced Sunday that they would be launching a joint project for humanitarian relief in developing countries, specifically in Africa.
According to Channel 1, the project, entitled “the Africa initiative,” will see Israel pledge 24 million shekel ($6.8 million) toward humanitarian relief in developing countries from 2015-2020. (cont.)

As recently as the summer, 2012, reports began filing in as to just how much money the Africans infiltrating Israel were actually costing the country. The above photo informs us that at one Tel-Aviv hospital alone (Ichilov), a collective bill of 28 Million Sheqqels (approx. $7 Million) was racked up alone, just for the sake of delivering the babies of these infiltrators!
What about other hospitals? Other medical departments? What about food, shelter, the necessity for additional law enforcement hours? Other parts of the country? The list goes on.
And, don’t forget. The above report was from the summer, 2012. Not only that, but it was not just then Micha’el Ben-Ari (Strong Israel) who was an MK at the time, complaining about the financial burden of these infiltrators. It was Ya’ir Lapid (Yesh Atid), a politician not often found to be in agreement with Ben-Ari.
So, when you are told that the Israeli Government is giving 24 Million Sheqqels in financial aid to Africa, whether you agree with this decision or not, know that this is a gross misrepresentation.
How many millions of sheqqels has the Israeli Government already forked out for the sake of citizens of African countries?
And, who foots the bill? You and I, the Israeli tax payer, of course.
