Israel helps former Nigerian rebels trade weapons for land | ISRAEL21c

According to Joseph Shevel, president of the Galilee Institute, Israel was singled out as a successful training ground after Nigeria had sent various other groups to several countries this summer in a pilot program.

It's not the first time Nigerians have trained in Israel. Shevel says that they've been coming for nearly 20 years, since Israel renewed its diplomatic ties with Nigeria in 1992. But the institute never before trained ex-rebels.
"The Nigerians' land was taken from them by oil companies," he tells ISRAEL21c. "Nobody cared about them. [The oil companies] kicked out the local farmers and the local farmers started to fight. The uprising had global consequences. Whenever a rebel would blow up an oil pipeline, world oil prices would rise, says Shevel, who expects 500 more trainees in Israel next year.
...
Shevel says kibbutzniks always warmly welcome the institute's visitors, who have even included former Palestinian terrorists.
...
Working through diplomatic channels with countries that don't officially recognize Israel is part of the job, says Shevel, who travels on a second passport when necessary.
...
Shevel adds that the new Minister of Agriculture in Afghanistan is a former trainee.

"There is a financial crisis in ...

"There is a financial crisis in the world, and we wanted to see how it affects East African countries in general and Kenya in particular, and what to do to minimize the damage," says GIMI president Joseph (Yossie) Shevel, an expert in economic development.

...
"We went through every department there and analyzed needs," says Shevel. Meetings were held with a variety of stakeholders, including the Kenya Power & Lighting company, in order to better evaluate the courses that Kenya School of Monetary Studies offers. Topics included the pension policy of Kenya, as well as strategies for commercial banks. GIMI faculty presented the Israeli model of the development of industries and small businesses. The African visitors to Israel, Shevel reports, were "amazed at the banking system in Israel. They visited our Central Bank and other banks, and they want to implement some of what they saw here in banking and management methods." Due to the success of the World Bank-sponsored project, GIMI was asked to prepare a training program for all progressive central banks in East Africa -- Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya and Rwanda -- to be held in cooperation with the Kenya School of Monetary Studies and the Central Bank of Kenya. This second phase, expected to last three years and eventually to include South Sudan, will begin in late 2013 and will be financed by the five countries' central banks. Heading off a looming crisis "We signed a memorandum of understanding with the Central Bank of Kenya to continue supporting them in capacity-building and analysis of training needs," says Shevel. In a separate project, GIMI officials went to Nigeria's Central Bank recently to meet with its management and identify several areas in which GIMI will devise special training programs. "Nigeria has 170 million people and more than 6,000 employees in the Central Bank," Shevel relates. The challenges facing these African countries are inflation, soaring interest rates and difficulty attracting investors, he explains. The key to all these challenges rests in the hands of the central banks' policies. And they trust the Israeli management institute to show them how to formulate their policies with the overall hope of getting more East Africans off the unemployment rolls. "We can see there is about five percent [economic] growth in all five countries in the last five or six years -- a steady and permanent growth despite the financial crisis. That is a good sign," says Shevel. However, a looming population explosion threatens to curtail that growth unless wise financial moves are made quickly. "Everybody is very concerned that in the year 2050 the population in Kenya will be 100 million and if they don't plan well now, there will be chaos and democracy will be at risk," Shevel warns.

Xie says that Joseph (Yossie) Shevel, president of the Galilee Institute, wishes that 1,000 Chinese, rather than only 80, would come to learn in Israel every year.
