Israel Launches Satellite over Africa to Give the Continent Internet Access

‘And I will make you a great nation (Israel), And I will bless you (Abraham), And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing (Abraham himself and the nation of Israel that would come from him through his children; Isaac and Jacob); And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed (Jesus Christ).” ‘

Genesis 12:2-3

Israel has launched a communications satellite into space that will give Africa digital service access.

According to CBN News, Israel’s Spacecom launched the satellite, dubbed “Amos-17,” into orbit from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Tuesday.

“AMOS-17 places us directly into the exciting growth of Africa’s Sub-Saharan vibrant markets,” Pollack said in a statement after the launch.

“As a leading multi-regional satellite operator, Spacecom is introducing the most technologically advanced satellite with HTS beams to service Africa where AMOS-17 will deliver a large selection of services to a variety of broadcast, broadband and telecom clients.”

Amos-17 is expected to stay over Africa and provide television, internet, and phone services for 20 years.

“A proud morning, with the news of the successful launch of the Amos 17 satellite. Thank you and congratulations to our friends at @AMOSSpacecom and @SpaceX for their important work on behalf of the State of Israel,” he tweeted.

The continent, however, has a major lack of internet access equipment and has many areas that are either underserved or not connected at all to any communication infrastructure.

“So the opportunity is clear,” said Shapiro.

To get connectivity via the Amos-17, locals can set up a solar-powered terminal, he added.

The launch was originally planned for last weekend but was postponed to repair a possibly defective piece of equipment on the Falcon 9 rocket, which carried the satellite into space.

Amos-17 weighs 6.5 tons and is about 115 feet long.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
