 1.  (C) Oren Anolik, advisor to the Israeli MFA's director 
general, informed poloff January 31 that the GOI has sought 
to reestablish diplomatic relations with Chad, which were 
broken in 1972.  There is no Israeli charge d'affaires in 
N'Djamena, according to Anolik.  As reported in reftel and in 
the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, the GOI had been in touch 
with former Israeli MFA DG David Kimche, who has done 
business in Chad, in an effort to improve Israeli relations 
with the Government of Chad.  Anolik reported that Kimche's 
contacts facilitated a meeting with the Chadian foreign 
minister in the summer of 2004, but his contacts were not 
successful in arranging contact with Chadian President Deby, 
whom the Israelis view as the key interlocutor.  Anolik said 
the GOI has reached Deby through other channels on two 
occasions, but both sides have postponed discussions about 
bilateral relations until after elections in Chad.  Anolik 
disavowed any Israeli involvement in Darfur politics. 
Separately, the acting head of the MFA Middle East Division 
told us January 30 that he knew nothing about any recent GOI 
moves in Chad or Sudan. 
 
 2.  (C) The Israeli MFA, under former Minister Silvan Shalom 
and current Director General Ron Prosor, has sought to 
establish ties with Muslim and Arab states.  Prosor's office, 
rather than the geographic bureaus of the MFA, has the lead 
on this sensitive issue, which has been a priority during the 
Shalom era.  Probed by poloff on Israeli priorities in the 
African Sahel, Anolik said only that the GOI is interested in 
relations with Mali and Niger.
