By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will begin a four country African visit tomorrow.
Netanyahu will start his trip in Uganda on July 4th, the day that marks the 40th anniversary of the heroic rescue in Entebbe where, in 1976, his brother Yoni was killed while leading the historic and dazzling mission.
This is the first time an Israeli prime minister will have visited the sub-Saharan Africa region in over three decades. Israel has a long history of aid and involvement in Africa, especially dealing with technology, water and agriculture. Most of those interactions have been behind the scenes and kept very quiet.
Israel is now ready to open a new era in their relationship with that region of the world. Part of Israel's objective is to challenge ISIS and radical Islam.
Africa is the future - and Israel needs to have a presence.
So over the next few days Prime Minister Netanyahu will visit Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Ethiopia. A truly historic mission of his own.
