Dim Sum – Israel, Thank You

Today, I remember  Israel for it’s assistance  in the set up  of Singapore’s national  defence  army and industry  during  Singapore’s early days as a nation.  I was there as young men in my cohort  were conscripted and underwent  unprecedented tough  national service training.

Israel we will not forget you.

Singapore was and  is blessed.

From Wikipedia  When Singapore achieved independence in 1965, its military consisted of only two infantry regiments, commanded by British officers and made up of mostly non-Singaporean residents. Britain pulled its military out of Singapore in October 1971, leaving behind only a small amount of British, Australian and New Zealand forces as a token military presence. The last of the British soldiers left Singapore in March 1976. The New Zealand troops were the last to leave Singapore, in 1989.[6] Singapore believed that it needed a larger force, with the presence of larger neighbouring countries. To that end, Singapore secretly contacted Israel, which sent military advisers who helped Singapore set up a defence force modelled in part after the Israel Defense Forces. Tactics such as jungle warfare were studied so that the Singaporean army could fight in neighbouring countries, if need be. The army obtained tanks from Israel before neighbouring Malaysia had tanks, and became a highly effective force.

Why Israel cannot withdraw to pre67 borders

The nature of friendship

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, ‘May they prosper who love you.'” –Psalm 122:6

 

Singapore supports a two-state solution in the Israeli Palestine conflict and hopes that it could be realized as soon as possible, so the people there can live in peace as we live in peace.
