FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1987

New York (JTA) — A
British-published African
weekly news magazine has
taken a swipe at Israel's
renewed ties with Africa. Ar-
ticles in the July 9 African
Concord claim that Israel has
pledged to develop African
agricultural and health pro-
grams with the ulterior
motive of selling arms,
building African armies and
establishing an intelligence
network to pass information
to South Africa.
The magazine also reports
that Israel continued active
military and business
engagements in Africa dur-
ing the years of discontinued
official diplomatic relations.
The magazine was one of
several black publications
made available for the press
at the convention of the Na-
tional Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People
in New York.
Concord correspondent Vic-
tor Ndovi describes Israeli

Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
week-long June visit to four
African nations as an
"African offensive," and
claims it was in response "to
growing domestic political
and economic pressures from
the United States."
Shamir visited Togo,
Cameroon, Liberia and Ivory
Coast, countries which over
the past four years resumed
diplomatic relations with
Israel that were broken off
during the Yom Kippur War
of 1973.
Ndovi writes that as Israel
itself cannot afford to offer
monetary aid to Africa, which
Shamir admitted during his
visit, Israel seeks financial
backing, mostly from the U.S.
A "key aspect" of Israel's
agreements with the African
nations, Ndovi writes, is
military. Thus, Shamir pro-
mised Togo military training
assistance that would include
the training and arming of
the presidential guard. In
