Israel to Launch AMOS-17 Satellite to Service Africa Communications

Israel continues to improve and change the lives of millions of people living in impoverished Africa. Next week Israel’s Spacecom will launch a communication satellite into space. The satellite will enable those living in the most remote areas of Africa to gain access to television and the internet. The Congressional Black Caucus should be showering praise on Israel. Instead, they embrace Farrakhan, while John Lewis co-sponsors resolutions to boycott Israel. Anti-Semitic frauds.

As is customary with rocket launches, if the weather is dicey, the launch might be delayed by a day. The launch comes nearly three years after the loss of the AMOS-6 satellite in an explosion.
