Kudos to the doctors yet when compared to the immense damage done to Congo by the former despot Mobutu, Israel's policy of support for the said despot of Congo certainly weighs heavy on the scales of good and and bad deeds in Africa. In 1981 Sharon, then minister of defense, paid a visit to Israel's good friend, President Mobutu of Zaire [latterly Congo]. The Israeli party was asked by their host to use their good offices to get the US Congress to be more forthcoming with aid. This the Israelis managed to accomplish. As a quid pro quo Mobutu reestablished diplomatic relations with Israel.
