KINSHASA, Zaire (JTA)
— Israel's flag was raised
again on May 21 over her
embassy here in the capital
of Zaire. After a nine-year
absence, which started on
the eve of the Yom Kippur
War when Zaire and most
other African countries
broke off their diplomatic
relations, Israel was back in
Black Africa.
The ceremony lasted
seven minutes and less than
40 people, mainly Israeli
experts and members of the
local Jewish community,
attended.
The ceremony was di-
rected by the Director Gen-
eral of the Israeli Foreign
Ministry, David Kimche,
who had come to Kinshasa
for the occasion, and the
Israeli charge d'affaires,
Moshe Itan.
At 2 p.m. Itan and
Kimche pulled the cord
which unfurled the flag.
An Israeli army officer
held a small portable
tape recorder which
played Taps and the Is-
raeli army's official
representative, Lt. Col.
Yoni Navon, in full
parade uniform, gave the
salute. The small crowd
burst into the Israeli na-
tional anthem,,Hatikva.

Israel's main task is to
convince other African
states to follow Zaire's
example. The next in line is
expected to be the Central
African Republic with
which Israel has had secret
contacts since last October.
Many Israelis hope that the
blue and white flag will
soon rise in Bangui, the cap-
ital of the Republic, as well
as showing that Israel plans
to return soon to all of Af-
rica.
