In reviewing the legacy of Ariel Sharon, few media sources have covered his important role in collaborating with the South African in military affairs to secure capitalist interests in Africa and with nuclear weapons programs. This article fills in the gaps. This collaboration clearly illustrates the common proverb which states, "birds of a feather flock together".
The military alliance between the two pariah states was largely covert, but, according to reams of correspondence between the respective defence ministries, unreservedly supportive and warm. Sharon played a key role in keeping it so, going further than most in publicly asserting South Africa’s urgent need for more and better weaponry. There was a clear sense of parallel between the struggles of the Apartheid and Israeli states, and although many Israelis were at pains to maintain their ideological distance, Sharon was not among them.
