Apartheid was a system of institutionalised racial segregation between blacks, coloureds and whites that existed in South Africa and Namibia from 1948 until the early 1990s. Nowadays, the Israeli government's institutionalised discrimination between Jews and Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territories in the Middle East has also been described as Apartheid.

In May 2021, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez labelled Israel “an apartheid state” after a week of Israeli military attacks on Gaza and claimed, therefore, it cannot be a democracy.[1]

Official narrative

Governments outside South Africa achieved a wide consensus in their condemnation of the institutionalised racism which was apartheid.

De facto policy

The UK government provided support for the apartheid government of South Africa.[2] Le Cercle was a valued deep state milieu into which South African spooks and diplomats were welcomed.
