What country in the world boasts the highest rate of suport for Israel?

"What country in the world boasts the highest rate of support for Israel? The United States? Wrong. The highest rate of support for Israel can be found in the Ivory Coast, where 61 percent support Israel and only 16 percent support the Palestinians. The same ratio is true where support for Hamas is concerned: Only 2% have a favorable opinion of Hamas and 37% have a 'very negative' opinion of this organization."Read the whole thing at Jerusalem Post

Thank you for your message in Wall of speech, and might I add congratulations for your blog.

One question: Would you like to become a Wall of Speech writer? I planning to build up the number of people that write there and if you have the time I would really love for you to become a member (you can cross post if you want)

Best regards,

Stran

What a public relations coup.

Stran_ger said...

It is not a coup :-)

Stran- Am up for joining the Wos crew. What do I have to do?

bob said...

Hmmm. Obviously being asked to be a WoS writer is a PR coup for Bob from Brockley, but I presume Renegade Eye meant Israel winning support in the Ivory Coast...

Don't forget:

Impact of Alpha Blondy's....
Baruh ata Adonei
Baruh ha ba yerushalaim
Yerushalaim Ani Ohev Otah... etc...

Alpha Blondy is actually from Cote'd Ivoir.

Not a blessing though. Some Israeli mercenaries and legal and illegal weapon exporters, legal and illegal diamond traders etc are trying hard to damage the good image of Israel in Africa. Nevertheless only 15 years ago Israel was a banned country in most African countries due to its trading with apartheid South Africa.
