Tel Aviv - Juba

"Israel" has signed a pact to cooperate on water infrastructure and technology development with South Sudan, the first economic cooperation agreement between Tel Aviv and Juba.
“We see this as a privilege to be the first to sign an agreement with the new state,” Energy Minister Landau addressed the South Sudanese official in a statement. “We will continue to do everything possible in order to assist you. You are among friends,” he added.

Achilles’ Heel of Egypt
For centuries, there were no competition or power struggle on the Nile Riverheads.. The geopolitics of Nile Basin were always about maintaining the flow towards the Mediterranean.. Various exercises and scenarios were always ready for corrective actions, including the armed force.. Political regimes across the Nile were mostly aware of the mechanism and its associated engagements.. The Ottomans of Egypt had elevated the issue into more urban and legal levels, whereas treaties and protocols were simulated or imposed among the 11 countries sharing the water rights.. Both diplomatic efforts and covert operations were the effective theme during Nasser’s era; with mixed patriotic, regional and continent-level slogans.. However, the most powerful African country in 1960th had had the legitimate rights to serve its rapidly increasing population; with their shear demand on basic needs, centered by water..

Nasser had triggered the Israelis attention to seek all potential and unexpected ways to contain both the Egyptian regional ambitions, and the Egyptian strategic hostility with Israel.. The Nile is the Achilles’ Heel of Egypt.. Israel tried hard during the last 40 years to penetrate Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya to develop stable allies that would affect the Egyptian water security and welfare.. Egyptians had known the attempts, and had confronted with proactive and reactive plans to maintain their strong indispensible ties with the Nile countries.. This had created the legacy of Egyptian African Policy during 1960-1980, which was remarkable yet unspeakable cross-border programs of corporation and development..

Despite his military up-bringing; Mubarak had turned his back to Africa, strengthening the Egyptian Israeli ties.. On the contrary, Israel had never let to go their strategic goals on the Nile, while the Peace Treaty with Egypt had enabled them to establish more effective policy, actions and relationships.. On the Dawn of 21st century, Israel had strong and comprehensive relations with most of the Nile Countries; which had been served with the Israeli notable technological spearheading..

Since the 1980, Israeli support to the Separatists of Southern Sudan was well reported.. Once the Partition was announced; Israeli flags had been raised along the South Sudan symbols.. Despite the disappointment South Sudanese officials had when sought swift Israeli development support; Israelis continued designing various models to synchronize their strategic orientation with the naivety of this New State..Professionally, the Israeli models are not what is needed for South Sudan, which critically require structural platforms rather than technological boosts.. This Water Management Agreement is 1st between the two states, and will not be the last.. Yes, there are no clear details about scope, deliverables, duration, but it is well known to be a launch for the formal umbrella for all potential Israeli activities, advices and plots as well..

State of South Sudan has the legitimate right to seek any support to develop their unbelievable state of anarchy, despair and devastation into a decent level of a State-Run-Country.. Yet; their obvious pitfall will be gaming with strong parties in unmerciful politics and games of power.. Structures, resources and ranks of South Sudan are far short from the necessary readiness and prequalification for such games, yet their neighboring and friend countries are hesitant to provide any true support.. Regretfully, they once again, prove how Africans are mostly incompetent to mind their own business..!!
