United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, Adopted on the 10th of November 1975, has determined that Zionism is a form of racism. The resolution was based on a handful of other declarations and resolutions primarily the Organisation of African Unity's resolution which considered "that the racist regime in occupied Palestine and the racist regime in Zimbabwe and South Africa have a common imperialist origin, forming a whole and having the same racist structure and being organically linked in their policy aimed at repression of the dignity and integrity of the human being".
There has been no time when this resolution had more substantiating evidence as now. The complete separation Israel is imposing on the Palestinians has been aggravated by a set of Pass Laws, Walls, Fences and disproportionate use of force. What is interesting is that Israel, calling its wall Geder Hafrada, has used the word "hafrada" which literally means separation, the same word in Afrikaans is Apartheid.
What I wanted to show in the attached image (provided by GNU from wikipedia) is a moral map of the world, those in green and dark green are the countries who voted in support of the resolution 3379, those in red voted against. The world seems to have been a better place then.
