Israel helps build mosque in Nigeria

It's one way to cement ties. While Hamas turns synagogues in Gaza into party headquarters and arms depots, and Iraqi Sunnis blow up the Golden Dome mosque, killing hundreds, Israel helps Nigerian Muslims build a Mosque. From JTA:

Yediot Achronot on Thursday quoted Israel's ambassador to Abuja, Noam Katz, as saying that his mission donated cement for the construction of a communal mosque for the Fulani, a Nigerian Muslim tribe.

According to Yediot, the Israelis became friendly with the Fulanis when several tribesmen attended an agricultural course run by the embassy.

'This is an example of how, despite religious differences and cultural gaps, Israeli aid in the region helps to build bridges of friendship and coexistence,' Katz said.
