In From Jerusalem to the Lion of Judah and Beyond, author Steven Carol provides a comprehensive understanding of Israel’s foreign policy, as well as its historic relationship with East Africa.
Carol conducted on the spot research in both Israel and East Africa for his analysis. He shows why a small, embattled nation, beset by mortal enemies from all sides, reached out and assisted other nations in another part of the world. Carol presents a deeper understanding of these issues:
• Historic links
• Economic and technical cooperation
• Military assistance
• Political developments
• The break in relations
• Historic developments since 1972
• Pragmatic engagement
• The Entebbe Affair
• The Rescue of the Beta Israel
• Relations restored
• An Old/New friend–South Sudan
From Jerusalem to the Lion of Judah and Beyond documents Israel’s willingness to offer a far greater share of its limited resources to international assistance than practically any other nation, large or small. It provides a relevant political analysis of a unique approach to foreign policy.
