Abstract:In November 1975 the U. N. General Assembly declared zionism to be a form of racism, thus in effect equating it with apartheid in South Africa. That this resolution was adopted with the support of; most black African states has dramatically highlighted the shift in attitude of these states coward Israel, whose relationship vita them prior to 1973, bad been cordial. The Arab-Israeli war of 1973 with its concurrent injection of the politics of oil into international relations has brought about L? a realignment of the international order. This new realpolitik of Africa is examined in this essay, with special emphasis on Southern Africa and Israel. Sections: Oil and the new international system - The diplomacy of Israel and South Africa in Black Africa - South Africa and Israel: cooperation and conflict between 'Settler States' - The OAU and Afro-Arab unity - The future of energy and power in Southern Africa - Conclusion, Notes.
