    ISRAEL, on Sunday, informed President Goodluck Jonathan that it would be sending a team of Israeli counter-terrorism experts, to assist in the ongoing search and rescue operations of the girls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.

    The offer was conveyed to the president by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in a phone conversation between the two leaders on Sunday.

    According to a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, in Abuja, Netanyahu called to convey his country’s sympathy and solidarity with Nigeria.

    After the call, Jonathan said he was optimistic that with the entire international community deploying its considerable military and intelligence-gathering skills and assets in support of Nigeria’s efforts to find and rescue the abducted Chibok girls, success would soon be achieved….


    Their track record with this kind of stuff is impressive.

    The U.S. ? I saw Mooch holding up a sign asking for the girls back.

    I got some problems with how Israel runs itself at times, but if I was one of those girls, I'd rather have Israel on the case than Obama, or France.

    "...Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Africa (WEFA) being hosted in the capital Abuja, Jonathan thanked foreign nations including the U.S., Britain, France, Canada and China for their support in trying to rescue the girls, who were kidnapped from a secondary school on April 14 by the Islamic militant group Boko Haram...."

    The U.S. is bound by ridiculous terms of engagement, and is led by people who don't or won't identify any enemy except for republicans. The U.S. couldn't even rescue our own ambassador. I'm a results guy. This is good news.

    ...OK, I agree, it is probably good news, but I'm a cynic/skeptic/realist kind of guy when it comes to human nature and real motives 'to help' (of all involved, not just Israel) :
