Netanyahu looks to changing Africa for new Israeli alliesFour decades after his brother was killed during a rescue operation in Uganda, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is embarking on an African mission of his own – but with very different aims.Galvanized by a growing demand for Israeli security assistance and his government's search for new allies, Netanyahu has put a fresh focus on improving ties with African nations.His itinerary has not yet been released, though Netanyahu said he has accepted an invitation to visit the continent from African leaders. Among them is the president of Kenya, with which Israel has strong ties, and a visit to that country seems likely. Netanyahu's planned trip is an opportunity for Israel to further deepen business ties with the economically growing African states in fields in which it possesses expertise.
