America's entanglement with Israel

What is Mossad farming in Uganda?

Haaretz reports on the role of former Mossad chief Rafi Eitan in bringing Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni to Israel:

“I have been a friend of the Ugandan president for many years and I helped him [with the visit to Israel]. I know a few people in the wider world and sometimes I go with them to see the prime minister and the president,” Eitan told Haaretz yesterday.

Eitan initially said Museveni had invited him to the meeting with Netanyahu and Peres, but afterward said he had phoned the prime minister and president and asked to join the meetings. “Shimon Peres and I have been friends for many years. I called and told him I was a friend of the Ugandan president, and Peres told me to come to the meeting,” Eitan said.

Eitan returned to the world of business two years ago and became interested in various business ventures in Africa, mainly in Uganda. “I want to start farming projects, like a cattle ranch, but it has not yet started. In any case, agricultural projects do not depend on meetings with prime ministers,” Eitan told Haaretz.

Intriguingly, the Ugandan dictator was not the only African leader to visit the Jewish state last week. According to Uganda’s Daily Monitor newspaper:

President Museveni spent four days in the Middle East meeting Israel business community and politicians. He also coincidentally found himself in the same hotel with Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

The two leaders were reportedly not aware of each other’s visit.

Presumably, it’s also coincidental that both Uganda and Kenya have recently joined the Somali front in the Israeli-inspired “global war on terror.”
