*During the mid-1970s when much of the world was lining up to help overthrow racist white minority rule in South Africa, documents released last week show that Israel was attempting to aid the racist regime up to the point of providing it with chemical and nuclear weapons to possibly use against the country’s majority Black population.

The documents were discovered by American scholar Sasha Polakow-Suransky while researching the recently published book “The Unspoken Alliance: Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa.”

Though seldom mentioned by American media, it was an open secret during the 1970s that Israel was one of the Apartheid regime’s closest allies. “Apartheid” is what the minority white government called its system of racial oppression.

However, the closeness of Israel to South Africa’s white supremacy was not fully known until the release of last week’s documents. (Taylor Media Services – www.blacknewsjournal.net).
