African Union: Israel expelled From Addis Ababa summit

Israel fails once again in its attempts to infiltrate the African Union. His delegation was simply kicked out of the Addis Ababa summit.

New snub for Morocco in its attempts to impose “a seat” for the Zionist entity within the African Union. More for Morocco in particular than for Israel, whose expansionist aims of its extremist leaders are well established.

Deputy Director for Africa at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, Sharon Bar-Lee, was kicked out of the hall of the 36th African Union Heads of State Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia yesterday morning , despite her “observer status” and a “badge” for access to the conference.

According to information relayed by several media, an invitation would have been sent to Israel, before being finally canceled, but despite this the Zionist entity dispatched its delegation and wanted to attempt a coup.

Israeli Foreign Ministry

Annoyed, the Israeli Foreign Ministry accused Algeria and South Africa of being behind the expulsion.

In fact, the Israeli delegation with badges was going to attend the closing meeting of the AU session, but, finally, as a video that made the rounds shows, security agents prevented them from doing so.

Because in truth, the delegation is not a member, not even an observer, a quality that was rejected despite the forcing of the former chairman of the African Union commission, Moussa Faki, who had acted solo to grant this status to Israel, supported by the Kingdom of Morocco which had just been readmitted to the Pan-African organization.

The debate on the decision and the observer seat was suspended in 2022. Powerful member states strongly protested against the decision taken in 2021 by Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the African Union commission, to accept the accreditation of Israel within the bloc.

The AU summit, meeting on February 6, 2022 in Addis Ababa, suspended the decision of the chairman of the African commission Moussa Faki to grant Israel observer status and set up a committee of seven heads of State including Algeria to make a recommendation to the AU summit on this issue.

The decision adopted by consensus by the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the AU provides for the suspension of the decision taken by the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki to grant, on July 22, 2022, observer status to the Zionist entity within the AU, reported the media, some of which accused Morocco of having played with the former Chadian president, who died at the front, of having proposed to the Zionist entity to be an observer member of the AU when Morocco had just regained its seat.

The plan was foiled by influential states that support the Palestinian cause. And currently, he is out of sorts with the new Israeli government whose main thrust of its program is the intensification of settlements, relegating peace negotiations with Palestine to a hypothetical deadline.

The normalization of some Arab countries has boosted Israel’s desire to sell an image of a friendly country internationally, while internally the situation argues the opposite.

Should we also take into account the Palestinian Authority’s requests to African leaders to withdraw Israel’s accreditation to the AU, denouncing its “apartheid regime”.

Calls that found an echo in Addis Ababa, which sent back the unwanted Israeli delegation that came inopportunely to attend the AU summit which closes the mandate at the head of the Union of Senegalese President Macky Sall.
