Made In Israel
What does Israel have to go with the deteriorating situation in Zimbabwe, where Robert Mugabe (pictured) is literally bashing opponents? Times of London reporter Jan Raath found a curious angle:
Tension built in Harare’s townships yesterday, with doctors reporting a constant stream of people with severe injuries inflicted by police during the illegal curfew imposed over the city’s poor areas. In Highfield, south of the city, Israeli-made water cannon trucks patrolled the streets.
Israel is no friend of Mugabe, who once accused Jews of conspiring against Zimbabwean businesses. Like many other African tyrants, he probably acquired second-hand weapons made in every corner of the globe.

During the second world war the future South African prime minister John Vorster was interned as a Nazi sympathiser. Three decades later he was being feted in Jerusalem. In the second part of his remarkable special report, Chris McGreal investigates the clandestine alliance between Israel and the apartheid regime, cemented with the ultimate gift of friendship - A-bomb technology
Amusing the Times using the water cannon to castigate the Israelis but make no mention how Belgium supplied Fabrique National automatic weapons, rifel and heavy m/c guns and the license to produce them in SA.
The French sold helicopters and Mirage jets and licensed their production in SA.
And of course the British supplied armoured troop carriers etc.
Now THAT is anti-Semitic.
