Get the door--it's Yad Sarah!

This is a most heartening story. A couple of predominantly Muslim countries in West Africa want an Israeli relief agency to "franchise" itself in their countries:

Senegal and Mauritania are interested in franchising Yad Sarah in their countries.

Yad Sarah is an Israel-wide network of volunteers aiding disabled, elderly, housebound people. The organization provides medical equipment to anyone in need.

With the help of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, the two Muslim countries will adopt Yad Sarah’s model for the benefit of their citizens.

Wonderful. I hope this will counteract the Wahhabist poison that Saudi petro-billions have been pouring into West Africa. What a great opportunity for bridge-building!
