From: Israel, A Beachhead in the Middle East


Chapter Eight focuses on the progress being made by Third World countries in the United Nations General Assembly as they began to overthrow the virtual monopoly of First World countries with colonial histories, and how they were able to use the General Assembly to condemn Zionism as racism in 1975. The advance of the Third World, the global movement for universal equality, and the political Left, bode ill equally for the continued domination and plunder of the world by corporate America and the maintenance of colonialism and racial discrimination in the Arab territories conquered by Zionist settlers. During the 1970s, the political Left fought back against colonialism and neo-colonialism, not only in Africa and Southeast Asia, but also in the Arab world.
