ISRAELI MILITARY AND PARAMILITARY ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS TO SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA • Israel has played a strategically important role in Africa as a servant of the U.S. organized "free world" empire. U.S. imperialism uses Israeli diplomatic, military, and "development" institutions to further its own objectives of tying post-independence Africa to the West and undermining revolutionary movements which threaten Western hegemony. Israel's own long-range political and economic goals have also been strengthened by "foreign aid" programs in at least 15 African countries.
