Palestinians condemn Chad’s normalisation with Israel

Idriss Deby with Benjamin Netanyahu

The Palestinian Islamic resistance movement Hamas has denounced Chad’s normalisation of relations with Israel as a “stab in the back” of the Palestinian nation, calling on the N’Djamena government to reconsider the move.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled to Chad, where he and Chadian President Idriss Deby “announced the renewal of diplomatic relations between Chad and Israel.”

In a statement on Monday, Hamas condemned Chad’s involvement in a “dangerous wave of normalisation with the Israeli occupation.”

The Palestinian movement further denounced Chad’s policy shift “as a stab in the back of the Palestinian people and their just cause” against the Israeli occupation of their homeland.

“While Hamas realises the dangerous repercussions of normalisation with the Israeli occupation on the Palestinian cause, it calls on Chad to reconsider its move, isolate the Israeli occupation, and continue supporting the Palestinian people’s freedom struggle against the occupation,” the statement read.

Deby visited Israel and met with Netanyahu in November, becoming the first Chadian leader to visit Tel Aviv 47 years after the two sides severed ties.

Back then, Israeli media cited sources in N’Djamena as saying that Deby’s visit was focused on “security” and that Tel Aviv had already been supplying weapons and other military equipment to Chad.

Over the past two years, Netanyahu has been seeking to secure a foothold in Africa. He has travelled to several African states in a bid to convince them to stop voting against the Israeli regime at the United Nations in favor of Palestinians.

The Israeli regime is now seeking to restore relations with Mali, a West African country, The Times of Israel reported on Monday.

The report, citing unnamed Israeli officials, said the regime is preparing for a visit by Mali’s Prime Minister Soumeylou Boubeye Maiga “in the coming weeks.”

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
