Despite the Zionist regime’s intense and comprehensive attempts to gain the observer status at the African Union, the African governments unanimously refused to accept the membership and rejected what the African Union Commission (AUC) had previously accepted in an unconsidered move without taking views of its member states into consideration.
Various factors worked together, and the Zionist regime which tried to call the entry into the African Union as a great success after the scandalous defeat of the controversial “Deal of the Century”, faced an unexpected event; especially that in such area, it was the African nations who, through their indirect influence, imposed such a humiliating defeat on the Zionist regime.
Although Algeria and 11 other countries were named as the main factors in this regard, it was the public opinion of the African nations that played a role in realizing the consensus on the rejection of the Zionist membership.
The predominantly black nations of South Africa consider the Zionist regime as the apartheid regime in South Africa; because this regime, based on Zionist attitudes, describes the Palestinian people as a lower race and Bani-Israel (sons of Israel) as a superior race.
For this reason, they have repeatedly called on the Zionist regime to end its racist and sectarian policies in Palestine, like South Africa, but the predominantly Muslim nations of North Africa emphasize the need to support the Palestinian brothers and sisters from an Islamic perspective and consider what is being done against the Palestinians in occupied Palestine as a double injustice to their brothers and sisters.
However, all African nations, based on their past colonial experiences in Africa, consider any occupation of the territory as an unforgivable act and place the Zionist regime in the lowest position in this regard.
Thus, it can be said that what the African governments voted for at the African Union meeting is in fact the result of popular tendencies in African public opinion, which those governments, under different titles, are obliged to observe.
However, the Zionist regime pursued various and very important targets in its attempts to become an observer member in the African Union, the first and most important of which was the attempt to exit from isolation and establish its position as a legitimate political system, just as the Zionist regime has attempted in recent years, to normalize relations with some Arab countries, in order to pretend that not only the Palestinian issue has been ended, but that the Zionist regime has been accepted as a reality by all governments.
On the other hand, this project of normalizing relations with two Arab countries that are also African, namely Sudan and Morocco, has faced widespread popular opposition and requires a series of other propaganda efforts so that it could be considered as a normal affair. As a result, the Zionist regime’s objective of trying to join the African Union went far beyond stabilizing its position and making the necessary effort to complete the project of normalizing relations with Morocco and Sudan; in other words, as the Zionist regime’s membership in the African Union was accepted by the governments, the governments of Morocco and Sudan had typically lesser problems with their nations in this regard.
Another objective of Tel Aviv is to obtain a license to enter the economy field, especially mining area, in the countries that have the most diamonds and gold in the world, as well as precious metals and, as usual, Israelis and the Tel Aviv government are constantly trying to monopolize the total exchanges related to this type of metals by creating a mafia for the exchange of diamond, gold, and more recently, titanium.
Of course, the target of the Zionist regime in the field of Africa include other cases as well; because they sought to establish their spy and intelligence activities in the Islamic societies of the northern part of the continent by obtaining a license through membership in the African Union. In fact, the Israelis wanted their activities in those countries not to be brought under the magnifying glass by gaining the observer position in the Union. However, with the suspension and non-acceptance of such membership in the African Union, such goals have become more unattainable.
