Oblivious to the momentous events in the Middle East, the United Nations General Assembly continued to pass anti-Israel resolutions. The following resolution, which is section D of a resolution called "Policies of Apartheid of the Government of South Africa," is devoted to relations between Israel and South Africa. Of the scores of nations trading with South Africa, Israel alone was singled out to be condemned by the Assembly. This part of the resolution was adopted by 88 in favour, 19 against with 30 abstentions.
The General Assembly,
Recalling its repeated condemnations of the intensification of relations and collaboration by Israel with the racist regime of South Africa in the political, military, economic and other fields, in particular resolution 31/6E of 9 November 1976,
Taking note of the special report of the Special Committee against Apartheid concerning recent developments in relations between Israel and South Africa,
Recalling Security Council resolution 418 (1977) of 4 November 1977,
Noting with grave anxiety that Israel has continued further to strengthen its relations with the racist regime of South Africa in defiance of the resolutions of the General Assembly,
Considering that the collaboration by Israel has constituted an encouragement to the racist regime of South Africa to persist in its criminal policy of Apartheid and is a hostile act against the oppressed people of South Africa and the entire African continent,
1. Again strongly condemns Israel for its continuing and increasing collaboration with the racist regime of South Africa;
2. Demands once again that Israel desist forthwith from such collaboration and, in particular, terminate all collaboration in the military and nuclear fields;
3. Requests the Special Committee against Apartheid to keep the matter under constant review and report to the General Assembly and the Security Council as appropriate.
