Israel Chemicals considering potash mine in Ethiopia
Site is cheaper on balance than other places worldwide, closer to company’s main markets.
By Yoram Gabison
Israel Chemicals has been in talks recently with a Canadian listed company Allana Potash about opening a potash mine in Ethiopia.
Allana Potash CEO Farhad Abasov met with ICL senior management in Tel Aviv three weeks ago to seek ICL's participation in the construction of a mine at the Dallol site in Ethiopia's Danakhil Valley, located in the country's northeast.
Allana has already raised $85 million from investors to build the mine, which is expected to yield a million tons of potash annually. The mine site has 182 million tons of proven potash reserves and potential reserves as high as 438 million tons. The mining project will be based on technology in which ICL has particular expertise from its Dead Sea Works, pumping and evaporating brine to extract potash.
For the next 182 years sure of potash, with a potential of another 483 years.
I always am confident when we do business with the likes of Israel and China.
They are all about practicality. No nonsense politics and talks.
Whenever I see the word “Israel,” my heart rejoices and feels more confidence in my country and in the friendly state of Israel. When I see the word “Arab,” I feel betrayed, cheated, and lied upon.
When I hear about Isreal, i feel depressed and sad. I see the coming of Palestine back home. May Allah protect my people.
Assta B.Getto: : : : : : : : : : : you insulting 300 million people, stupid ignorant, if you have hatred for Muslim people, there is Christian Arab too, or atheist, budaist, learn some education, don’t judge people by their color or religion. Assadabi qoshasha.
One of the outstanding work of the ruling party of Ethiopia is that they know whom to deal with.I am very much impressed by the magnitude of Ethiopian government sense of direction. This is Ethiopia the home of the brave. Thank you EPRDF!!
Assta B. Gettu,
I and many, many other Ethiopians feel the same way as you do. It is a deep rooted and millennia old feeling and connection we cannot ignore or take it out from us.
Many Israelis don’t know that. However, it is not about them but us having our own connection with Israel.
If Ethiopia wasn’t and isn’t there, and if the Nile that is the most talked, written, sang, legend, myths and so on river than any other river is not from the Ethiopian Highland, for sure, Israel would get very bad situation long times ago. Because they know, Ethiopia would never sit and watch if anyone harms Israel because reasons that are fiction and not accepting the truth than Israel is the home land to the Jewish people since many thousands years back including Jerusalem was built by the Israelis.
Palestinians we know from the bible are not Arabs and had their own language, culture and tradition. But those saying today are Palestinians are Arabs have nothing to do with the real Palestinians we know from the Torah and bible.
So, Israel, USA, Some Europeans including France, Russia, Africa and the rest have to know and need to understand this reality and stand with Ethiopia to fight back and if possible to eliminate the Arabs in Africa/Ethiopia that are not capable of working but being around many wives and females including very young girls and committing so many crimes in the name of Wahabi Islam.
The current situation in Ethiopia including treating the Ethiopian flag that way is just one of the many well calculated satanic job conducted by the Wahabi Saudi and Gulf nations’ money where Egypt is behind and English are the actors pretending as if they are here and there for something good.
Israel is very much welcome in Ethiopia any time for any reason. We trust them for anything knowing the relationship between Ethiopia and Israel is started 3000 years ago and the time has come the two nations need each other more than ever in the future for generations to come. The Arabs are putting them and all of us in a great danger with help coming from England and USA greedy individuals living for money.
Israel is Always welcome in Ethiopia knowing our feeling is not human made but like natural coming down from generating to generation for thousands years. Strong, United and none Arab influence Ethiopia is the best not only for Ethiopians but also Africa, Israel. USA, Asia, Europe, Latin America and all over the world. Being free from Arabs is like being from the biggest and worst devils and feel free and living happy.
Adgi and co . whether China ,Isareal
even peoples from Planet Mars are not making business for FREE .Secondly how come your bandit masters are unable to give the opportunity to local Investors always letting the whole activities Under Foreign Controls .If the Israelis take the potash Mines Under their control that means they will ship to their country by reintroducing back in the country’s
mrket transformed as FERTILISER .That means that Ethiopian farmers shall be obliged to use ,Israeli Made Fertiliser from their own mine .While it’ll be easy to lauch a Chemical Industry Complex locally which could creat job opportunities and give to the countries farmers to buy Fertilizer
with an affordable price for them .
@ Assta B. Gettu
It does not matter with whom you are dealing with Arab, Israel, China blab ,blab ,blab. They will use their influence to keep their interest first. The best approach is to be competent and stand for ourselves when you deal with others. Finally I recommend you to
get some info. about Felashas life in Israel before worshiping it and not being stereotype.
Three fourth of this area has been ceded by the weyannes to the norther bandits of Eritrea, barrel, stock and lock, as they say, the nomads, their herds of goats and camels, to say nothing of the red sea ports; one can only imagine how much of this potential resource has been lost for good.
AZ, it says 182 million tons, not necessarily years! Your your arithmetic properly. The question arises: has it something to with what my friend HRH AP said about you last time?
By the way, I concur to what you said about the excessive excuse of using holidays, not to avoid work per se’, but simply out of being tied, hand and foot to beliefs and old habits, which in turn, naturally, resulted in centuries of agricultural disasters and other malaise….
Now to our honorable friend Asta B Getu: I am also glad that Israel invests capital and expertise in this field, but it is simply just profit motive that brought them there, and nothing else!! If conditions change they would pull out just as fast as they came in. That is how capital works. It knows no borders, friends, or any sort of historical, emotional attachments and affinity.
Your eulogizing of Gonderes as the mother of all Ethiopia in your response to that girl, Sandra did a dis-service to, in my opinion, the Amhara natives of Shewa, Godjam, Wello etc.. the Gonderes are since time immemorial known for their arrogance, vanity, and utter disdain of others, especially of the Shewans, with whom I identify myself. We know what happened after the cursed Gragn and Arabs (Turks) invaded Shewa and the seat of government shifted to the north; what followed was a 3 hundred years of bloody civil war, mayhem and disintegration of the nation, until the great, wise and benevolent Menelik (bless his soul!) got his hands on the affairs of the land. That is how I have experienced Gonderes in Gondar and outside it too. I have to admit that the best traditional songs and singers hail, now as always from Gondar. On this I am sure we agree..Don’t we??.
Last but not least, go a bit easy on the issue of Islam; just ignore that devil Gragn who is trying to snare you in his devilish ideas.
That is also a deterrent for Arab monopoly on Ethiopian resources. No one can be as genuine a partner as Israelis.
We, Ethiopians the word Israel is not
only for business, good relationship and cooperation. But, for us it means
epicenter of our faith, because larger
part of population are Orthodox Christian and Jews.
We Ethiopians are ready to sacrifice for Israel for everything even our life. It is integral part of the core of our faith to defend Holyland and God people the jews. It is duty for every true Christian to do. In our bible it God says:
” O Israel, I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you". May the world know much about the born again Christians who support Israel but what they don’t know 80 million Ethiopian who love Israel more than even some jews.
Let us pray for peace of Jerusalem.
As someone already said , capitalism philosophy is based on the bottomline– maximum profit with minimum costs. and Jewish investiments on land is not different. As matter of fact, they are the most profit-oriented and cunning business people for centuries in the world. They do nothing for free, sex or charity.It has nothing to do with historical fictions, altruism, habesha`s old terat terat, imaginary religious affiliations or other personal emotional traumas. Again, debtra Ass Goitu you are showing your plain ignoramus in the public view here. I thought you were bragging about and told us before that you have got smart educational background of an Ivy League parlance. But apparently it was not mean to be. It was all naked lies to mask your debra inferiority complex. Debra always remains debra with his wicked charlatan ways no matter what.
Favioli or Sheweraga
Nice to hear from you again though you changed your pen name but obviously any one can read between the lines. Tell your donkoro debra from Gonder caves where he belongs. He cannot compare himself with the civilized Shewans of the likes of atse like Minelik and Harerghe pedigree of statesmen and warriors like Haile Silasse. Mengistu and even Ahmed Graign.
Come on dude! They said that there is a potential of producing or an out put of a million tons of pot ash annually. Go figure!
You just want to praise your wushima (girlfriend) AP.
Does that mean you gonna have one in the west and one in the east senait? Not bad. And a good strategy fav!
Excellent! Since long time, I’ve been yearning for such extraordinary news.
The active participation of Israeli companies in the economic developmemnt & social transformation of Ethiopia is long overdue.
Please encourage many more Israreli investors and technology companies to come to Ethiopia and benefit eachother by giving Ethiopians the opportunity to realise their full potential.
By the way, how they are treating poor Flasha immigrant? Did they offer busness parneship or are they relegated to ghetos and little more than refuge wharehouse only to be used their kids as a canoon fodder against colonized Plastinan territories? Where is the brotherly love here?
@Assta B. Gettu
Listen you ugly amhara bantu with nappy hair and monkey noise Ethiopia is a majority muslim country whatever you like it or not. There’s nothing you’r Amhara bantus tribe can do to stop sharia law taking it’s roots in Ethiopian.
Come to Harar with that badass attitude of you’rs Iol I swear down the locals will cut your Amhara ugly bantu face right in the middle of the damn street.
Ps I am a Somali Prince because my ancestors my great, great, great grandfather and his brave warriors King Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi conquered that ugly dirty mud villages of Amhara bantus Dembiya, Gojjam, Begemder, Angot, Wollo, Shewa and Lasta etc and enslaved the Amhara bantus I belong to the bloodline.
we (Somali, Afar, Aderi) going to do the same thing our fathers did Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi, mohamed said barre, Mohammed Abdullah Hassan etc.
We GONNA REconquered the runaway Amhara bantus especially the Amhara woman who have lately become
S L U T S. We gone discipline the Amhara bantus once more.
I FEEL THE SAME I FEEL GOOD WHEN I HEAR THE NAME OF ISRAEL. LOVE ISRAEL. ISRAEL IS WELCOME IN ETHIOPIA. THEY ARE OUR BROTHERS. COME AND INVEST ISRAEL, USA, CHINA, JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA, BRAZIL, SPAIN…ETC. NO TO ARABS. WE DO NOT WANT ARABS AND YOU KNOW WHO, SHIRITAMS,
Ass be Quittu
Didn’t i tell you guys this person is an evil agent foreigner working hard to divide us.
However, I don’t blame him for claiming his nationality to middle eastern country out of hate to his identity and color.
In the 60’s his king said he is not negro.
He also said he is from that tiny country in the middle east.
He erased his Ethiopianwinet by saying this.
You guys blame Muslims for Arabs though have blood relationship.
This tiny country never admitted any DNA relation.
Do you know the name of this king who sold his soul for nothing.
Kuxx be Ass be Quittu
You are slave of this century.
You are created to cause misery and violence on humanity.
You are terrorist, genocidal, hater.
free (Member) did not attack you as he attacked Jawar. This is what that country image is.
Jawar said one thing only one time even that one is for defensive narrative while Ass be Quittu called for genocide on Ethipian Muslims.
free (Member) threw everything on Jawar for months and continues.
Ethiopiawinet , Read this:
Are the Kings of fake Ethiopia really Blacks? What do they consider themselves? Are these not traitors??
When Haile Selassie fled to London, Gravey tried to contact him
but was snubbed, and it was reported that “the emperor did not
desire any contact with ‘Negroes.’”
The New World of Negro Americans By Harold Robert Isaacs p.153
Menelik II and Selassie both agreeing they are not Africans but rather in Menelik II own words as a “Caucasian".
Menelik II aka blacker than Shaq’s elbows said he was a caucasian.
Menelik II also had wrote to King Umberto of Italy and said, among other things, that
“I beg Your Majesty to defend me against every one as I don’t know what European kings will say about this let others know that this region is ours.”
(See Chris Prouty, “Empress Taytu and Menelik II,” page 54)
Jerusalem I love; Mecca I detest; Jesus I worship; Muhammad I hate; Christianity I embrace; and Islam I disgrace.
Jerusalem, the oldest and the holiest city, the blessed and the dwelling place of the children of God, God Elohim, God El Shaddai, God Adonai, God Yahweh, God Shkhinah, God The Eternal One, God The Rock of Ages, God The Ancient One, God The Amen, God The Alpha, and God The Omega – one God – is the exact replica of the Heavenly Jerusalem the Apostle John, the son of Zebedee, saw on Mount Patmos “coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband,” and this earthly Jerusalem of King David whom the Almighty God called “after my heart,” has been many times besieged, conquered, recaptured, burned down to the ground, and finally has come to existence and is now burgeoning under the leadership of her own indigenous people, the diaspora Jews and the Ethiopian Black Jews who have never been exiled. It is to this resilient and remarkable city of God that charming Queen of Ethiopia, Queen Sheba, traveled hundreds of miles with very costly gifts loaded on the backs of the sheep of the desert – the camels – to visit King Solomon and to test his wisdom. She sat with him; played with him; ate with him; drank with him; slept with him; and marveled at his wisdom and deeply-felt love for her and for his subjects.
The great achievement of her arduous journey was the birth of a king, King Menelik I from King Solomon and her. The birth of Menelik I has been an unbreakable iron bridge that connects the Ethiopian people with the Jewish people, and this bridge is not an artificial bridge, a children’s bridge; it is an eternal bridge purposely built by the Almighty God for the manifestation of his glory.
Mecca, the city of idols, illiterate Arabs, the birth place of the false prophet Muhammad, and the home of the Black Stone, has no history that appeals to the historians, to the archeologists, and to the students of all ages. Unlike the historically and naturally rich Jerusalem, Mecca has never attracted any king to come to her and invade her because there has never been anything in Mecca except desert and sand. The only person who attacked the few wealthy Jews of Yathrib (Medina) was the fortune-seeker Muhammad, the imposter prophet, and that is all! Of course, now we see millions of Muslims go to Mecca every year for one reason only, i.e. to kiss and worship the Black Stone (Kaaba); therefore, Mecca has never been a point of interest. It has been the gathering place of many Islamist terrorists and the death valley of millions of innocent Christians, Jews, Hindus, and many other infidels.
Jesus, the man, the teacher, the prophet, the miracle worker, and the divine Son of God, has been on this earth for about 33 years, and, within those few years, he has brought many changes into the lives of millions of people. The core of his teaching has been “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31). And as a true lover of all people, he died on the Cross to save those who believe in him. As he was dying on the Cross, he prayed for his enemies: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34).
Muhammad, the man, the teacher, the prophet, and the son of Abdullah, has been on this earth for about 62 years, and, within those years, he has brought unbearable misery to the whole world as the BYZANTINE EMPEROR PALEOGUS once said
“Show me just what Prophet Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
He has never performed a single miracle, and yet he has deceived about 1.5 billion people. He has killed thousands of people, converted hundreds of Jewish Synagogues, Christian Churches, Hindu Temples, and other shrines to Islamic Mosques. The core of his teaching has been: “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends” (Quran 5:51)
His last words when he was dying were: “Allah’s curse be on Jews and Christians” (Bukhari: V5B59N727).
Christianity, founded by the blood of Jesus Christ, has been the source of our great civilization, our law of order, our democracy, and, above all, the source of our salvation through Jesus Christ. In Christianity, every person is equal: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).
Islam, founded by Muhammad the false prophet, has been the source of hate, constant conflict, and destructions against the non-Muslim world. Islam is not just a religion; it is also a political ideology with its barbaric Sharia law. Islam teaches: “We reject you. Hostility and hate have come between us forever, unless you believe in Allah only” (Quran 60:4). Therefore, Muslims will never be our friends unless we accept Islam as our religion. This is according to Quran 60:4).
