Volkstaat (Afrikaans for "People's state") is a proposal for the establishment of a homeland for Afrikaners. Outside a possible use of force, the South African Constitution and International Legislation present certain possibilities for the establishment of such a state. The South African regime declared that they would not support a Volkstaat, but "would do everything they could to ensure the protection of the Afrikaner language and culture". What a fine job they are doing.

Self-governing states


In South Africa it was called a "Crime Against Humanity."

In Israel it is called a "Roadmap to Peace."


Then read this.

In a clear victory for the much-maligned policy of apartheid, both Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas, alias Abu Mazen, have pledged their support for the so-called road map to peace at the recent Jordan summit with US President George W Bush, which, in essence, is the vision of two ethnically pure states existing side by side, without the one ruling over the other. The leaders committed themselves to a possible peace deal with the inevitable give-and-take of classical apartheid: Sharon agreed to the establishment of an independent Palestinian homeland, while Abu Mzen, by implication, agreed to the concept of Israel being an exclusively Jewish homeland. Abu Mazen won the creation of a truly independent and free Palestinian state within a definite time-frame, - while Sharon was able to point out in his speech that an own Palestinian state for the Palestinians will in turn guarantee the maintenance of a 'Jewish Israel'.

Though none of the two leaders mentioned the word apartheid by name, analysts have described the historic agreement as the type of ‘grand apartheid' envisaged by the former South African Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd, who was assassinated before he could fully implement it in South Africa. This left his successors to water it down and eventually capitulate altogether, dumping South Africa in the same morass Black Africa has been wallowing in since uhuru.
