Related: The Facts About (Human) Cost of Occupation by Israel J
Wednesday May 14, 2008 – 00:31| BellaCiao | Dr Gideon Polya
The fundamental messages from the World War 2 Jewish Holocaust (6 million victims, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and the WW2 Holocaust in general (30 million Slav, Jewish and Roma dead) are “zero tolerance for racism” and “never again to anyone”.
These sacred messages from the WW2 Holocaust have been monstrously violated by Apartheid Israel, its Anglo-American backers and its racist Zionist (RZ) supporters for 60 years as summarized below.
1. There are now 7 million Palestinian refugees (4.3 million registered with the UNHCR); 85% of Christian Palestinians have fled.
2. 1.5 million Palestinian Israelis live under race-based Apartheid laws (Nazi- and Apartheid-style compulsory race-based ID at all times; race-based marriage prohibition laws; race-based discrimination over property acquisition, property rights, social participation, travel in their own country and family reunion).
3. 4 million Occupied Palestinians are held as prisoners in increasingly abusive conditions in what outstanding Jewish American scholar Professor Noam Chomsky of the 63-Nobel-Laureate MIT describes as a “Prison” (they are held without charge or trial in effectively several major Concentration Camps – Gaza, Samaria and Judaea; their capital city has been stolen and violated together with the Third most Sacred site in Islam).
4. Post-invasion excess deaths (violent and non-violent avoidable deaths from bombs or bullets or deprivation, respectively; deaths that did not have to happen) now total 0.3 million and post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million.
5. Annual Occupied Palestinian avoidable under-5 infant deaths total 2,400; annual violent deaths total about 800 (20% children); annual excess deaths total 5,000 – deaths in custody at the hands of a racist, Apartheid regime.
6. It has cost the American taxpayer about $3 trillion (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/223… ) plus a further $3.5 trillion accrual cost of the racist Zionist-backed War on Terror (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/223… ).
This racist, genocidal horror was inevitable from the outset in the late 19th century when the Zionists set out a “me too” program of racist colonization to mimic what Western Europeans were already doing on every continent – the Americas (genocide of the Indigenous Indians in Canada, the US, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay); horrendous racist colonization and mass murder in West Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa (10 million died in the Belgian Congo alone); the Aboriginal Genocide in Australia, and the Maori Genocide in New Zealand; slavery and mass Indigenous death from introduced disease in the Pacific; and mass murder in Asian (excess deaths from the British enslavement of India 1757-1947 total 1.5 BILLION; excess deaths in China from the Opium Wars and the Tai Ping rebellion associated with Western encroachments totalled 20-100 million) (see: “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/137… and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ; see also Lindqvist, S. (1992), Exterminate All the Brutes (Granta Books, London, 2002) ).
Zionism founder Theodor Herzl was explicit in stating the racist agenda of Zionism in a more general context of European colonial racism 112 years ago (1896) in “Der Judenstaat” (“The Jewish State”, see Chapter 2, sub-heading “Palestine or Argentine?”: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org… ); thus the following QUOTE.
“If His Majesty the Sultan were to give us Palestine, we could in return undertake to regulate the whole finances of Turkey. We should there form a portion of a rampart of Europe against Asia, an outpost of civilization as opposed to barbarism. We should as a neutral State remain in contact with all Europe, which would have to guarantee our existence.”
Theodor Herzl’s 1896 dismissal of the great Asian civilizations – Mesopotamia, Iran, Turkestan, India, China, Japan, Korea, Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Sri Lanka etc – as “Asian barbarism” is mirrored by the extraordinary (to decent folk) assertions of an Israeli Ambassador to Australia in 2006 as QUOTED below.
“Israel and Australia are like sisters in Asia. We are in Asia without the characteristics of Asians. We don’t have yellow skin and slanted eyes. Asia is basically the yellow race. Australia and Israel are not – we are basically the white race. We are on the western side of Asia and they are on the southeastern side. Israel has not fully acknowledged the value of working together with Australia in Asia. It’s a way for us to cooperate with and enhance our position in the countries neighboring Australia.” (see top Israeli newspaper Haaretz: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages… ).
This anti-Asian sentiment was translated into horrible reality with the (continuing) genocide of the Palestinians, 60 years of violent attacks on its Arab neighbours and sustained Apartheid Israeli support for the African- and Indian-suppressing, neo-Nazi Apartheid régime in South Africa (see: Blum, W. (2006), Rogue State, A guide to the world’s only superpower (Zed Books, London)).
However there is a further shocking dimension to the human cost of Israel, namely the effect on excess death in its neighbours due to its war and occupation policies. Using UN Population Division data one can estimate that the 1950-2005 excess deaths in all countries partly occupied by the State of Israel in the last 60 years totalled 24 million. The breakdown (1950-2005 excess deaths/2005 population) for the State of Israel and its violated neighbours is as follows: Israel [0.095m/6.685m =1.4%] – Egypt [19.818m/74.878m = 26.5%], Jordan [0.630m/5.750m = 11.0%], Lebanon [0.535m/3.761m = 14.2%], Occupied Palestinian Territories [0.677m/3.815m = 17.7%], Syria [2.198m/18.650m = 11.8%], total = 23.858m/106.854 = 22.3% (see: “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya/).
Apartheid Israel and its racist Anglo-American backers can be seen as not merely anti-Arab anti-Semitic (ethnic cleansing Indigenous Arab Palestinians) but also anti-Jewish anti-Semitic by grossly violating the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust – “zero tolerance for racism” and “never again to anyone”.
In the over 40 year occupation and mass imprisonment of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (current population about 4 million), post-1967 excess deaths total 0.3 million and post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million. There are 7 million Palestinian refugees; 2,400 Occupied Palestinian infants are “passively murdered” by war criminal Apartheid Israel EVERY YEAR; 85% of Indigenous Palestinian Christians have fled; and outstanding Jewish South African Government Minister and hero in the fight against Apartheid, Ronnie Kasrils, describes the Zionist-occupied Holy Land as “worse than Apartheid” (see: http://www.mg.co.za/articlepage.asp… ) .
Wonderful, anti-racist, humanitarian British and Australian Jews are speaking out against Apartheid Israeli crimes against humanity – see Independent Jewish Voices ( IJV: http://jewishvoices.squarespace.com/ ) and Independent Australian Jewish Voices (IAJV: http://www.iajv.org/ ). See also “Apartheid Israel’s 60 Years of War, Theft & Palestinian Genocide “: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/223… ).
We cannot walk by on the other side – but what can we do? All decent folk must (a) follow the example of anti-racist, humanitarian Jews of IJV and IAJV and SPEAK OUT against Apartheid Israel and (b) apply national and international Sanctions and Boycotts against racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel and its Zionist-Bush-ite backers in order to STOP the Holocaust-defiling, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic and anti-Arab anti-Semitic Racist Zionists (RZs) NOW – it worked against Anglo-America- and Apartheid Israel-backed Apartheid South Africa 2 decades ago and should be successful against Anglo-American-backed Apartheid Israel TODAY.

Something to ponder about…
For who not sees or who’s eyes are still closes. IOA has become exactly and even worse than those, they feared and hated once themselves. Using the same atrocities, policies to oppress, ethnically cleanse and eradicate human beings. Creating a new Shoah (Holocaust) for the Palestinians in 1948 with Al Nakba, and sustaining it by hasbara and the world’s ignorance or at least those not using their own mind to reconsider the realistic facts. So Hasbara in 16 words explained:
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it…”
