[This is quite a fascinating discovery by the ChristiansForTruth website. What I must point out is that in Africa you have a couple of instances of mixed-race "Black" rulers or elites. This is true in Angola, but especially the ruling Khama family of diamond-rich Botswana. So you do find these mixed race people can on some occasions be exceptionally wealthy and powerful. The richest woman in Africa for example, is such a mixed race person from the former Portuguese colony of Angola. The Congo is a very unstable and enormous and wealthy African country, probably second only to South Africa. It is very likely that it will break apart. I think most, if not all, Black states will break apart in this century. Jan]
The ancestry of the wealthy son of a Jewish refugee in the Democratic Republic of Congo has emerged as a flashpoint for a political crisis that is threatening the integrity of the massive African country:
The crisis came to a head last week when lawmakers loyal to President Felix Tshiseked introduced a bill that would restrict the presidency to those with two Congolese parents.
It’s a thinly veiled move against Moise Katumbi, one of Congo’s most popular politicians, whose father was a Greek Jew who fled the Holocaust in Europe and settled in Congo, where he married a local woman, Katumbi’s mother.
A vote on the bill has not been scheduled, but the measure is already angering Katumbi’s large supporter base and raising fears of a return to political violence in Congo. Rivalries and inter-ethnic hostility have triggered human tragedies on a massive scale in the land of 5.4 million people.
Rabbi Menachem Margolin, chairman of the European Jewish Association and an ally of Katumbi, condemned the bill, saying it’s “an outrage that in 2021 a person can be disqualified for having a Jewish parent.”
Complicating matters further is the fact that Katumbi hails from the province of Katanga, a mineral-rich area in the country’s east with a history of secessionism that he served as governor. The attempt to block Katumbi’s path to the presidency is rekindling secessionist tendencies there.
On Monday, 10 great chiefs — community leaders wielding significant followings, influence and money — threatened to support secession if the bill is passed. The U.N. peacekeeping mission head in Congo, Bintou Keita, in connection with the crisis warned last week against the “dangerous consequences of a divisive debate about nationality,” Reuters reported.
Let’s face it — if Katumbi’s father had been a Christian or Arab instead of a Jew, none of this would be much of a controversy at all.
Congo — or any country, for that matter — should have the right to be ruled over by ethnically Congolese leaders who will be more likely to be loyal to their people.
Should the Congolese people trust Katumbi — after he has already expressed his “warm connection to Judaism and Israel“? Can he serve two masters?
And no doubt it’s just a coincidence that Katumbi represents the part of the Congo with the richest mineral resources — something that Israel has no interest in exploiting, rest assured.
Where Jews or part-Jews have become leaders of non-Jewish countries, they are often perceived as disloyal — and for good reason — though Jews claim this “disloyalty” charge is just one of many antisemitic “canards”.
Take Nicolas Sarkozy — the former French Prime Minister who is also “part” Salonican Greek Jew — in 2008 on national television, he told the ethnically French natives that they would have to race mix with non-Whites for France to “survive” — yet tells Arabs that their ethnic identity is sacrosanct:
What is the goal? It’s going to be controversial. The goal is to meet the challenge of racial inter-breeding.that faces us in the 21st century. The challenges of racial interbreeding that France has always known. And in meeting the challenge of racial interbreeding, France is faithful to its history….It is not a choice — it’s an obligation. It’s an imperative. We cannot do otherwise. We risk finding ourselves confronted with major problems. We must change, therefore, we will change….We are going to change all at the same time — in business, in administration, in education, in the political parties. And we will obligate ourselves as to the results. If this volunteerism does not work, for our Republic, then the State will move to still more coercive measures.
