A former Israeli special forces agent is helping South African farmers defend themselves. Violent gangs have been robbing them and killing them.

Helping Those in Need

Israel has helped people all over the world countless times. From medical aid for disastrous earthquakes to helping get clean water in Africa, Israel seems to be first to jump at these opportunities. For example, when a volcano hit Guatemala, Israel sent emergency aid.

And now, Israel is helping South Africa in a different way. A former special forces commando is helping South African farmers defend themselves.

Israeli Special Forces and the Farmers

Israelis are good at defending themselves. The sad truth is that it’s because they have no other choice.

But this Israeli is happy to share his defensive techniques with those who need it.

And right now, the ones who need it are South African farmers. Violent gangs have been robbing them and even worse, killing them. An average of 1 farmer every week has been killed for the last 22 years. And some weeks, it’s more. As the South African government isn’t doing much to help the situation, an ex-Israeli special forces commando, Idan Abolnik, has been training these farmers and teaching them anti-terrorist skills. Abolnik is highly experienced, and if anyone can teach the South African farmers how to fight back, it’s him.

Kindness Knows No Boundaries

The training took place in South Africa more than 9,000 kilometers from Jerusalem. Idan Abolnik went far from home to help others in a different region fight a different fight. And that is what many Israelis do. They leave the comforts of their own home to go out and help the needy. Whether it’s to save lives or to improve lives, for Israel, kindness knows no boundaries. Israelis just continue to help. And the world needs to know about it.
