Even as a kid in Rhodesia, I heard that the Jews, who were mostly Doctors, but also businessmen and mayors, were sending monthly amounts to Israel. They were donating money to some kind of fund inside Israel to “build” the state of Israel. I don’t know all the exact places and mechanisms they were donating with.

Later it was discovered by Rhodesia that Israel under Golda Meir was helping the terrorists in Rhodesia. Rhodesia’s leader, Ian Smith, asked South Africa’s help. South Africa’s President told Israel to stop helping the terrorists OR MONEY FROM JEWS IN SOUTH AFRICA TO ISRAEL WOULD BE STOPPED!

But this threat to cut off monies to Israel clearly really scared the Jews.
