    US tells Kenya to publicly support Israel or forget free trade deal

    Summary

    • Inclusion of a third party, Israel, in the negotiation agenda, has seen lobby groups in Nairobi warn that the agreement could be too risky to Kenya's interests.
    • The US indicates that the deal with Kenya should, with respect to commercial partnerships, discourage actions that prejudice or discourage business between the US and Israel.
    • Kenya has often recognised Israel, but rarely makes a public statement endorsing one side or the other and supports the ultimate two-State solution for Palestine and Israel.

    The US wants Kenya to support Israel’s political and commercial interests, or forget a free trade deal (FTA) with the world’s biggest economy.
    This is one of a raft of conditions set in the ongoing FTA negotiations between Nairobi and Washington.

    The US has indicated in its objectives seen by The EastAfrican that the deal with Kenya should, with respect to commercial partnerships, discourage actions that prejudice or discourage business between the US and Israel.

    Washington argues that the FTA should “discourage politically motivated actions to boycott, divest from, and sanction Israel.”

    The US also wants the “elimination of politically motivated, non-tariff barriers on Israeli goods, services, or other commerce imposed on Israel; and the elimination of State-sponsored, unsanctioned foreign boycotts of Israel, or compliance with the Arab League Boycott of Israel.”

    The inclusion of a third party, Israel, in the negotiation agenda, has seen lobby groups in Nairobi warn that the agreement could be too risky for Kenya.

    The US has for decades been a staunch supporter and defender of Israel on the global stage and in volatile Middle East.

    "US" tells us the same thing...

    why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).
    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    US will also probably threaten to bomb Kenya to further put them into submission.

    No no, that would be a terrible idea from America-First standpoint.
    And could cause further political chaos and again spur unproductive memes and narratives like these in media:

    How is anyone ok with the fact that Israel (or any country for that matter), has a stranglehold on our government?
