Zambia was among African nations that attended celebrations to mark the US embassy’s relocation from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Sunday evening.

On Monday, Gaza had its bloodiest day in years after Israeli forces shot and killed 52 Palestinians and wounded at least 1,200 as tens of thousands protested the relocation of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

And South Africa took a strong stance against the killing of 41 Palestinians by Israeli armed forces by pulling its Ambassador Sisa Ngombane with immediate effect until further notice out of Israel.

But Zambia’s Ambassador to Israel Martin Mwanambale joined 86 other envoys which included 33 from Africa, Latin American, European and a few Asian diplomats at the controversial ceremony.

This is according to a list released by the Israeli Foreign Ministry on Sunday evening.

The other 11 Ambassadors who attended the event were drawn from Angola, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Sudan and Tanzania.

Notably absent from the list were some of Israel’s allies and staunchest friends, such as Canada, Australia and Germany.

Other important countries with which Israel has good ties such as China, Russia, Argentina and India also boycotted the event.

Most European countries have slammed US President Donald Trump’s move to relocate the embassy as not in line with international consensus, preferring to wait on recognizing the city until its status is finalized in talks with the Palestinians.

On Monday, the new US embassy was officially inaugurated in the capital’s Arnona neighborhood.

“Seventy years ago, the United States, under President Harry S Truman, became the first nation to recognize the State of Israel,” the US State Department said in a statement Saturday.

“Moving our Embassy is not a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace deal; rather it is a necessary condition for it. We are not taking a position on final status issues, including the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, nor on the resolution of contested borders.”

Citing Trump’s December 6 speech, the statement said that “the historic opening of our embassy recognizes the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the seat of its government.”

The US Consulate General on Jerusalem’s Agron Street will continue to operate as an “independent mission with an unchanged mandate responsible for U.S. relations with the Palestinians and the Palestinian Authority,” the statement went on.

And South Africa has taken a strong stance against the killing of 41 Palestinians by Israeli armed forces by pulling its Ambassador Sisa Ngombane with immediate effect until further notice out of Israel.

“Given the indiscriminate and gravity of the latest Israeli attack, the South African government has taken a decision to recall Ambassador Sisa Ngombane with immediate effect until further notice,” Department of International Relations spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said on Monday.

Mabaya said the attack also resulted in scores of Palestinian citizens being injured.

He said government condemned “in the strongest terms possible the latest act of violent aggression carried out by Israeli armed forces along the Gaza border”.

“[This] led to the deaths of over 40 [people] killed following a peaceful protest against the provocative inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem,” he said.

Mabaya said South Africa reiterated its view that the Israeli Defence Force “must withdraw from the Gaza Strip and bring to an end the violent and destructive incursions into Palestinian territories”.

    • MB,

      Well that’s one way of looking at it. You have unsurprisingly belittled me. I would rather be hated for what I am than loved for what I’m not. I hold a PhD that doesn’t sit down well
      With you does it ? I bet your skin crawls by that fact.

      I don’t follow politics not much history in my world of studies.

      Why don’t you educate me so
      I learn, rather than biting my nipples time after time, even when I have made it clear I don’t want to.

      The ball is in your court.

      Tell me about the significance of this celebration

    • Trump relocated the US embassy at the behest of the racist so-called white evangelicals. The Jewish lobby and Netenyahu also prompted Trump BUT MOST OF ALL IT’S BECAUSE IT’S SOMETHING OBAMA REFUSED TO DO.
      The present secular state of Israel has nothing to do with the Holy nation in the Bible. How can it be when it’s supported by WICKED EVIL TRUMP?
      WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO CELEBRATE.

      – PF regime support Morocco the only African colonialist over Western Sahara.
      – PF regime supports brutal African dictators like Kabila, Kagame, Museveni, Al Bashir, Mugabe, Mswati.
      – Israel is racist to the core. African refugees are imprisoned & deported to Uganda whilst those from Europe are integrated. The police are racist, just search “Ethiopian IDF Soldier Beaten By Israeli Police In Unprovoked Racist Attack”

    • Lazy Lungu’s govt has no foreign policy whatsoever to them Foreign policy is like a Traffic light ….RSA can do what they did as they have a robust foreign policy not policy decided by one ignorant drunk dingbat in State House. The likes of PF would only send away or recall an envoy for petty silly issues like attending a launch of a party in Lusaka….am sure these morons at Foreign Affairs didn’t even think twice about the ramifications of attending such an event…they are likened to that boy Saviour Chishimba who is always in Jerusalem looking for acceptance. The Jews do not like you black people ..you are a threat to them and the so called chosen race.

So you have a PhD and ignorant at the same time? One would think with all that education you would have interest in reading and general knowledge? Or maybe it’s one of those from Matero university somebody keeps talking about?

    • Why do we have to celebrate an event where 58 people got killed? Don’t we care about morality? Or have we just lost our bearings? What is this Jerusalem that people must get killed over it? Our Lord was crucified outside the city gates. Prior to His death, He wept over it and walked away from it. Christianity is about outreach, from that epicenter: “and beginning at Jerusalem, into Judea….” to the entire world. With all due respect to Zionism, the idea to create an ancient glory, long departed, is absurd. It’s not worth the shedding of innocent blood, but less to dance and celebrate when that happens.

    • Zambia: The biggest sell-out nation in Africa. Zambia spent the first 27 years of its independent state fighting against apartheid, Zionism and all forms of oppression. It was one of the most remarkable freedom-fighting African countries. one of the very very few who severed ties with Tel-Aviv because Israel had relations with apartheid South Africa and was persecuting Palestinians. Now the tables are turned; South Africa is boycotting Israel and Zambia, with toothless Lungu, is celebrating Trump’s normalisation of Israeli oppression against hapless Palestinians. We need principled leadership not Lungu.

  4. In South Africa, the government does not have to shoot foreigners or practice xenophobia, its citizens do that for them. Why do I say that? Well, the government has never taken any action against its citizens for those crimes, not a single south africa is in court or has ever been arrested. RSA govt reacting to Israel is just hypocrisy, not that I have any stance on the Israel- Palestine conflict. I just can’t stand hypocrisy, whether by South Africa or h.h and his cronies, because it is the highest form of deceit, worse than corruption, immorality or for.nication or even conspiracy to murder if you like!!!

    • @upnd cadre, go hit some books or something and stop the smoking. RSA has consistently stated that their experience mirrors what is going on in Israel. That is the basis for their policy in relation to Israel. Anything else is separate from what you term hypocrisy. I now see why most of you think Pilato went to RSA because he was “joking” about the threats he received. The Bembas say “icikalipa cumfwa umwine”. Do not belittle other peoples’ experiences. You are the hypocrite.

We suffered attacks and lives lost to help the liberated and their economy is thriving on the Zambian market. What do we get in return? Deaths for Zambians who collect cars through Durban port, Zambians are attacked in their cities whilst they continue enjoy peace when they are in Zambia. Let us focus on our own issues like the national dialogue by accommodating everyone’s concerns & fears.

Just last week, Yitzhak Yosef, the top rabbi for Sephardi Jews (Church does not ordain women) in Israel said, black people are monkeys, and imagine, the Government is examining the remark whether it constitutes racism. In the 80’s, an Israeli Government delegation visited newly independent Zimbabwe, during the meeting, on discovering that the Zimbabwean team was led by a woman minister, they walked out, they did not want to be addressed by a woman. Israel was the last country to allow women to vote in an election. Yes they may have built the University of Zambia, please do not count on them very much.

Check their bible or holy scriptures it only has the Old Testament. There’s no record of Jesus. They don’t have the four Gospel books. They don’t have the New Testament. Nothing! Have you ever lived with them or near them? You would know this. Not too long ago it was said Netanyahu was encouraging Jews in the diaspora to return to Israel to await the coming of the Messiah. He himself is awaiting the coming of the Messiah. Go figure. They like to use Jesus for profit. Period.

    • Iwe newbie Jews don’t have a bible. You need to go to school to learn that noone ever sat down to write a Bible. Before the bible each temple had its own scriptures. The bible is a collection of selected scriptures or various writings. The selection was done by Christian priesthood. Some of these writings may also be in Jewish scriptures and some in Islamic scriptures. The Christians decided on a bible after seeing that the Moslems had a holy book and they had none. Indeed Judaism makes no mention of Jesus because for them the messiah is yet to come. Jews don’t use Jesus for anything

    People respect PhD holders because of the sacrifice, in monetary and time resources, a person puts in to acquire a PhD. A Doc is someone who has made original contribution to a field of study meaning that one has invested time in research and researching certain phenomenon. It’s strange that a PhD holder would fail to do a simple ‘google research’ to get an idea of the Palestine/Israel conflict. Its the likes of you that have contributed to the recent disrespect directed at PhD holders.

    Please invest time in researching issues.

Even supporters of Israel should, from a human point of view condemn this atrocious indiscriminate killing of people.

Zambia is a peace and God fearing nation and don’t need people like you espousing what the the SA Government can’t do which is to stop people there killing each other everyday so stop trying to intimidate people with your ideology when you don’t know the facts. Are you EFF or just stupid?

  39. And I see you dont care about Zambians anyway, why didnt you say anything about those poor truck drivers that have their trucks burnt and have been killed by you just for being Zambian. Lucky all the people in SA are not like you and your government. chumbu mushololwa

  40. Just like that ***** Spaka like lilo trying to stir things up by saying Israel and USA called black people monkeys. Not even fake news but liars and maybe they are Russians or ISIS. Please everyone don’t believe what you read everywhere, they are just stirring up hatred and trying to turn us against each other. God bless the Chumbu’s.

  41. See, you believe fake news. Look at the pictures where the Palestinians attacked Israel first with petrol bombs, some on kites. Anyone will defend themselves if attacked first even GBM. Unfortunately innocent people including children have been killed but blame both sides not one.

  42. @John … The retaliation is clearly out of proportion and you are defending it. How ridiculous! There are other means of responding to a crowd that has a right to protest and is not using any military hardware. Israeli soldiers use live bullets on babies and people in wheel chairs and you have the audacity to defend this.

  43. Sorry Harold I don’t agree. How can you bring children to a protest and throw petrol bombs whilst storming the border fence. Blame the parents for that not me. I think its awful that anyone dies from this tragedy but both sides are to blame and it will happen again when the funerals take place. So
    its not audacity but look at who are the aggressors and you defend them?
    Who started it first. Any country has a right to defend their borders and their citizens. All they did was to celebrate Jerusalem was reconized as
    their capital and they get attacked yet again?

  44. @Spaka like lilo; i may not be religious; but am not ignorant; check your history; where were these Palestinians 2000 years ago or 3000 years ago? the Jews were in Jerusalem and in modern day Israel; these Palestinians are Muslims who multiply in millions wherever they go because they marry many women and produce more children; check their growth in Zambia from KK days to now and see how many they are now;
