The world has marked the 16th anniversary of the US 9-11 atrocity in which about 3,000 people were killed. However unremarked are the 32 million Muslims killed through violence, 5 million, or deprivation, 27 million,  in the post-9-11 US War on Terror;   the 1973 US-backed Chilean Coup on 9-11 (3,000 killed, 300,000 subsequent deaths from deprivation); and the 1906 founding on 9-11 of Gandhi’s Satyagraha that ultimately  saved 700 million Indian lives in the half century after Indian Independence.

  1. Gandhi’s launch of Satyagraha (11 September 1906).

In 1906 the racist South African Transvaal government enacted a law compelling registration of Indian and Chinese populations deriving from British use of indentured labour (“5 year slaves”) as a profitable  alternative to explicit slavery that had been abolished in the British Empire in 1833. Indian writer and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in his recent book “Inglorious Empire. What the British did to India”: “Besides the Straits Settlements [Malaysia] and Mauritius, destitute Indians were also shipped as indentured labour to other British colonies around the world, from Guyana and the Caribbean Islands to South Africa and Fiji in the Pacific. Some 1.9 million to 3.5 million Indians (the numbers vary in different sources, depending on who is counted) moved halfway across the globe , most involuntarily, under the colonial project”  and “On one route, Kolkata to Trinidad, the percentage of deaths of indentured labour on the transportee ships reached appalling levels : 12.3 per cent of all males, 18.5 per cent of the  females, 28 per cent of the boys and 36 per cent of the girls perished , as did a tragic 55 per cent of all infants” [1, 2].  These indentured labourers were typically “5-year slaves” tricked into employment for a pittance in horrible circumstances by the British after the  abolition of  slavery in British Empire. One recalls racist mass murderer Winston Churchill’s notorious comment on Chinese indentured labourers in the Transvaal: “The conditions of the Transvaal ordinance … cannot in the opinion of His Majesty’s Government be classified as slavery; at least, that word in its full sense could not be applied without a risk of terminological inexactitude” [2].

In my part of the world (Australia and the Pacific), the  transport of 60,000 Indian  indentured labourers to the Pacific island group of Fiji in the so-called Girmit (Agreement) system began in 1879 after an Australia-derived  measles epidemic wiped out 40,000 Fijians (a quarter to a third of the Fijian population) in 1875. Impoverished Indians were mostly tricked into becoming  indentured labour in the British and Australian sugar cane plantations in Fiji. This  “5 years’ slavery”  “Girmit” system ceased in 1916  after protests in India by Mahatma Gandhi and his associates, and  the last “slaves” (known as “Girmityas”) were released in  1920. A dear elderly Indian friend remembers the whip marks on her mother’s back left by Australian sirdars (overseers) [2-4]. My Australian children and grandchildren are the descendants of the Indian Girmityas as is the terrific, human rights-supporting, Tasmanian Labor Senator Lisa Singh [5]. From the 1840s  White Australians had developed a horror of Indians and Chinese coming to White Australia even as indentured labour, and in the latter half of the 19th century deceived or kidnapped 62,000 Melanesians  (“kanakas”) from the South Pacific as effective slave labour for Queensland  sugar plantations with some 15,000 dying within several years and the further collateral damage of scores  of thousands dying from introduced disease in the South Pacific.  After the White Australian colonies became a Federation in 1901, some 10,000 South Sea Islanders were forcibly repatriated away from family and friends back to the South Pacific islands from which their forebears had been kidnapped [6-11].

Gandhi organized and addressed a mass meeting protesting the race-based registration of Indians and Chinese. This  mass protest meeting was  held in Johannesburg on 11 September 1906, and on this occasion  Gandhi presented for the first time his  evolving plan  of “Satyagraha” (insistence on truth) involving  non-violent protest for justice [12, 13].  This Gandhian philosophy has had a huge impact for the betterment of mankind. This Gandhi-initiated Indian resistance to racism in South Africa greatly helped in the fight against racism and Apartheid by the African National Congress (ANC; formed in 1912) that eventually led to the fall of Apartheid and a post-Apartheid South Africa under Nelson Mandela in 1994 [14].  Mahatma Gandhi was a major figure for non-violent protest in the movement that ultimately led to Indian Independence from Britain in 1947.  The Gandhian non-violent approach inspired other leaders for human rights around the world, notably American civil rights leader  Martin Luther King Jr.

The human survival consequences of Gandhi’s Satyagraha and non-violent protest have been immense in India in particular,  as revealed by the huge drop in Indian avoidable mortality  after Indian Independence in 1947. Thus  in 1947 under the rapacious and racist British, the avoidable death rate as a percentage of population  was about 2.4% per year and an estimated 418 million Indians had died avoidably from deprivation in the period 1901-1947 (about 500 million if one includes the Native States) [7]. In post-Independence  India the avoidable death rate had dropped enormously to 0.35% per year in 2003. Thus, despite a high Indian birth rate,  the Indian population had only increased from about 305 million in 1870 to 345 million in 1947, whereas after Indian Independence  the population of India per  se soared to about 1,100 million by 2005 and presently exceeds 1,300 million in 2017 [2, 7]. The launch of Mahatma Gandhi’s  Satyagraha movement on 11 September 1906 ultimately helped gain Indian Independence and save the lives of about 700 million Indians in the last 50 years of the 20th century.

  1. US-backed military coup in Chile (11 September 1973).

After a long period of US subversion (in which US lackey Australia was complicit via the CIA-beholden Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO)), the democratically-elected Allende Government was overthrown in a US-backed military coup led by General Augusto Pinochet. President Salvador  Allende was murdered,  40,000 Chileans were arrested and about 3,000 Chileans were killed. The US-backed Pinochet Government subsequently arrested and variously tortured 130,000 Chileans over a 3-year period. Democracy was finally restored in 1990 after 17 years of fascist atrocities. One notes that the reformist  Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam ordered the dismissal on 7 November  1975 of the Australian ASIS chief for  disobeying the Labor Government’s circa February 1973 order to cease Chilean operations. However PM Whitlam himself was dismissed several days later on 11 November 1975 in a “peaceful” US CIA-backed Coup  [7, 15, 16].

On 11 September 2017 the School of Americas Watch (SOA Watch) organization issued the following statement: “This September 11 will mark 44 years since the coup d’etat in Chile where thousands of people were assassinated, disappeared and tortured by the military dictatorship.  We cannot forget that the US plays, in this tragic history, an important role in the destabilization of the government of Salvador Allende, encouraging terrorist actions and financing opposition groups, including the press, with the goal of destabilizing the legitimate Allende government and thereby generate the conditions for the armed forces to carry out the coup d’etat on September 11, 1973 and thus put an end to the project of social justice pursued by the Popular Unity alliance (Unidad Popular). We cannot fail to remember the Church Report: Covert Action in Chile 1963-1973, which reveals that the operations carried out or financed by the US to bring down the government of Salvador Allende as well as the fact that during 1970 and 1973 we saw increased training by the US — training 781 Chilean soldiers at the School of the Americas, which was operating in Panama at the time. At 44 years of these events, we honor the tireless struggle of the thousands of women and men who continue to this day to search for their loved ones, still disappeared, as we do all the family members who continue to struggle and demand truth and justice for these crimes, which the conscience of humanity cannot forget… “We do not forget! We do not forgive!””.

From UN Population Division data it is estimated that about 300,000 Chileans died avoidably from deprivation under the  illegal, US-backed, grossly human rights-violating, fascist  Pinochet military regime (1973-1990) in addition to the 3,000 Chileans who were violently killed [7]. However it gets worse. The US-backed violation of Chile was part of a brutal, US-backed violation of US-dominated Latin America in which over 50 million people died avoidably from deprivation in the period 1950-2005 in addition to the hundreds of thousands dying violently at the hands of US-backed and US-trained killers  from Guatemala to Argentina [7, 16, 17].

  1. The US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity (11 September 2001).

The US September 11 (9/11, 9-11, 11 September) 2001 atrocities, in which a total of 2,995 people are reported to have died, destroyed 3 buildings in the World Trade Center, New York, severely damaged  the Pentagon and involved a further incident in which a plane crashed in Pennsylvania [18].

The “official lying Bush version” of the 9-11 atrocity from the pathologically mendacious US Government is well known because it continues to be given uncritical support and  saturation coverage by the pathologically mendacious, US-beholden Mainstream media worldwide –  it allegedly involved 4 passenger planes seized by a total of 19 Al Qaeda Muslim hijackers (of whom 15 came from Saudi Arabia, 2 from United Arab Emirates, 1 from Egypt and 1 from Lebanon i.e. none came from the then US Alliance war zones of Somalia, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan or Pakistan);  the North and South Twin Towers  of the World Trade Center (WTC) (which were each struck by a plane) and a third building (WTC7) (which was not struck by a plane) collapsed gravitationally as a result of structural steel weakness from fires;  part of the  Pentagon was destroyed when a passenger plane hit it precisely at the level of the ground floor; and a fourth passenger plane crashed in Pennsylvania after passengers fought with the hijackers [18].  The “official story” came from the  pathologically dishonest  Bush Administration which made 935 false statements in run-up to the illegal and war criminal invasion of Iraq [19]. The “official story” is utterly bizarre and unprecedented;  has been presented by groups of people  with an appalling record of lying by omission and commission, namely successive US Administrations, the governments of the US Alliance in general and the Mainstream Media (MSM); and has been upheld by a process of  highly flawed “official inquiry” [20]. Further, unlike the sustained Israeli attack on the defenceless US spy ship USS Liberty in international waters in 1967 (34 US servicemen killed, 171 wounded) [21], in the case of 9-11 there were no survivors to bear witness and no survivors to be potentially tried in a court of law.

While there are dozens of  aspects of the Hollywood-style  “official story of 9-11” that utterly strain credulity,  the 2 crucial assertions that depart from reality are (1) 3 buildings collapsing at speeds consistent with nearly zero resistance after relatively limited, low temperature fires  (with one building , WTC7, collapsing rapidly and perfectly into its footprint, while not having been hit by a plane or having suffered major fires), and (2) a huge jet passenger plane allegedly flown by Cessna light aircraft trainee pilots,  evading numerous physical obstacles and not guided by air traffic control, landing precisely on a dime at the ground floor of the Pentagon. Numerous science, architecture, engineering, aviation, military and intelligence experts reject the “official lying Bush version” of the 9-11 atrocity, with some asserting Apartheid Israeli and Saudi involvement. Indeed President Donald Trump and former US Vice President Al Gore, while not accepting the hypothesis of active US Government involvement in 9-11, both condemn the Bush Administration for utter negligence in ignoring  repeated, code red intelligence that  such an atrocity was being planned [22].

The pathologically mendacious Bush Administration used 9-11 as an excuse to invade  and occupy Afghanistan in 2001 on the bases that Osama bin Laden was harboured by the Taliban Government and was responsible for 9-11 (but no Afghans were involved in the atrocity according to the “official lying Bush version”,  formerly US-backed Saudi Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden denied involvement, and the Taliban offered to hand him over to a third country). In 2003 the US, UK and Australia invaded and occupied Iraq on the false basis that it had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), but post-invasion inspection revealed that the expert pre-invasion testimony that there were no WMD was proven correct [7, 23]. Secular leader Saddam Hussein had kept jihadi terrorists out of Iraq but after the US invasion they flooded in to ultimately create IS and invite further US Alliance invasion. Experts from both the Right and the Left  have asserted that the war criminal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq under an oil industry president were about gas and oil, respectively  [23, 24].

Perhaps the most damning recent testament from a top politician against the  “official lying Bush  of 9-11” and the invasion of Afghanistan has come from the US-installed Afghan President Hamid Karzai who, in a 10 September 2015  interview  with leading UK journalist Mehdi Hasan,  stated: “[Al-Qaeda] is for me a myth […] For us, they don’t exist. I don’t know if al-Qaeda existed and I don’t know if they exist. I have not seen them and I’ve not had any report about them, any report that would indicate that al-Qaeda is operating in Afghanistan…  [re  US “official version”, Osama bin Laden and  9/11 attacks] That is what I have heard from our Western friends. That’s what the Western media says. There is no doubt that an operation, a terrorist operation was conducted in New York and in Washington… I neither believe nor disbelieve something that I don’t know about. I can tell you that Afghanistan was as much a victim of terrorism as was America, as were the people who were killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks” [22].

Of course successive mendacious US Administrations could not sustain the palpable falsity of the “official lying Bush version of 9-11” without the connivance of the corporate Mainstream media. An extraordinary example of Mainstream media connivance with US Government mendacity is as follows. “Experts: US did 9-11” is an alphabetically-organized and carefully documented compendium of expert opinions to the effect that the US Government was responsible for the 9-11 atrocity.  Last year if you “Googled” the phrase “US did 9-11”  the website “Experts: US did 9-11” would come up on page 1. However Google has “reorganized” its search procedures so that a Google Search for “US did 9-11” does not reveal the website “Experts: US did 9-11”  in 7 pages of results – however if having reached page 7 you then click “repeat the search with the omitted results included” the website “Experts: US did 9-11”  comes up on page 4 of 3,470 results. In spectacular   contrast, if  you do a Search on Bing for “US did 9-11” you get the website “Experts: US did 9-11”  as item #2 on page #1 of 15.4 million results. QED. According to Marianne Sweeny, Search Information Architect: “Academic research indicates that 91% of [Google] searchers do not go past page 1 of the search results and over 50% do not go past the first 3 results on page 1” [25] . Similar checks and expert analyses reveal that Google (a giant of  corporate Mainstream media) is censoring Alternative, pro-Humanity sites it does not want its users to find and read [26, 27]. Corporate Mainstream media are purveying fake news through lying by omission and censorship [25-32].

A further germane example and comment comes from Professor Michel Chossudovsky (an award-winning author, Professor of Economics emeritus at the University of Ottawa, Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), Montreal, Editor and of Global Research) (2017): “The article below entitled Who is Osama bin Laden? was drafted on September 11, 2001. It was first  published on the Global Research website on the evening of September 12, 2001. Since 2001, it has appeared on numerous websites. The original September 11, 2001 posting became one of the most widely read articles on the internet, pertaining to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Since then it has been carefully “recategorized” by the Search engines. It no longer appears in the top pages of Google… 9/11 remains the pretext and justification for waging a war without borders” [33].

The 9-11 atrocity was quickly used as a pretext for illegal wars,  invasions and indeed a US War on Terror that in horrible reality has become a genocidal, Zionist-backed US War on Muslims. A major report  by 3 physician organizations recently estimated that 2 million Muslims had died in the US War on Terror [34] and other estimate 4 million Muslim deaths in Western wars [35, 36]. I have estimated 5 million violent Muslim deaths in the US War on Terror [37],  this being  heavily based on the expert survey-based estimate of Just Foreign Policy of 1.5 million violent Iraqi deaths in the US Iraq War [38, 39] and an estimate of a similar number of violent deaths in the Afghan War [40].  However UN data show that Muslim avoidable deaths from deprivation in 20 countries subject to Western military intervention in 2001-2015 now total about 27 million i.e. 32 million Muslim deaths from violence, 5 million, or from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity [41]. This carnage demands peace now and International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutions of those responsible for this Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide [37].

Indeed in 2005, after top American medical epidemiologists from Johns Hopkins University had estimated about 100,000 violent Iraq deaths in the Iraq War, anti-racist Jewish British  playwright  and Literature Nobel Laureate, Harold Pinter, asserted: “We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice” [42]. To paraphrase Harold Pinter, how many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? 32 million? More than enough, I would have thought.

Summary and conclusions.

The 16th anniversary of the US 9-11 atrocity has just passed.  A Google  Search for the term “9-11” yields nearly 300 million results and scanning of the first 200 results reveals that zero (0) refer to the 11 September 1906 launch of Gandhi’s Satyagraha non-violent protest movement in Johannesburg, South Africa, or  to the US-backed Chilean Coup on 11 September 1973. Over 90% of users will not go past page 1 of a Google Search result [25] and thus these non-US 9-11 events have effectively been “disappeared” from general public perception.

A similar revision of reality obtains with the term “holocaust” (in English an event associated with huge loss of life) – “The Holocaust” and “Holocaust” are now synonymous with the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or imposed deprivation) that was part of a vastly bigger “forgotten” WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies killed). Similarly “forgotten” WW2 holocausts  are the WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35 million Chinese killed under the Japanese, 1937-1945)  and the WW2 Indian Holocaust or WW2 Bengali Holocaust (6-7 million Indians deliberately starved to death by the British with Australian complicity, 4 million in Bengal and the remainder in Assam, Bihar and Orissa) that was the first WW2 atrocity to have been described as a “holocaust” (by N.G. Jog in a 1944 book) [8, 43, 44]. A Google Search for the term “holocaust” yields over 62 million results and scanning of the first 200 results reveals that virtually all refer exclusively  to “The Holocaust” of the present “Jewish Holocaust” usage outlined above.

However even if one penetrates the corporate Mainstream Media Wall of Silence and discovers the 1906 Satyagraha 9-11 and the 1973 Chilean 9-11 as well as the unavoidable 2001 US 9-11, the actual human consequences of these  events are largely  ignored by mendacious Mainstream journalist, writer, politician,  academic and commentariat presstitutes. In particular, the fundamental notion of avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation – unexceptional in relation to medical epidemiology or to the WW2 Jewish Holocaust – is utterly ignored in relation to the three 9-11s analysed above. Thus Mainstream media report that about 3,000 people perished in the 2001 US 9-11,  but utterly ignored (except by a few scientists)  is the horrifying reality that 32 million Muslims have died from violence, 5 million, or from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity [41].  Indeed the 16th anniversary of 9-11 has finally seen an article seriously questioning (albeit in asserted “conspiracy theory”  terms)  the “lying Bush men in caves official version of 9-11” and published in a Mainstream UK newspaper [45].

Similarly, having penetrated the corporate Mainstream Media Wall of Silence and discovered the Chilean 9-11, one finds that the atrocity of 3,000 Chileans killed by the Pinochet regime is widely reported. However utterly hidden are the estimated 300,000 Chilean avoidable deaths from deprivation under the US-backed Pinochet regime (1973-1990) and the over 50 million Latin Americans who have died avoidably from deprivation under American hegemony in the period 1950-2005 [7].

However there is a wonderful exception in this  9-11 saga – the founding of Satyagraha by Mahatma Gandhi on 9-11 in 1906 ultimately had a huge impact on peaceful national liberation and humane rights acquisition throughout the world.  In India alone it is estimated that non-violent protest-impelled Indian Independence helped save the lives of about 700 million Indians in the last 50 years of the 20th century [2, 7]. It is so tragically and awfully counter to decent sensibilities  that pro-peace Mahatma Gandhi was gunned down by a Hindu fanatic on 30 January  1948, a crime recently mirrored on 4 September 2017 with  the assassination by presumed Hindutva terrorists of Indian journalist,  humanitarian  activist and critic of Hindutva communal fanaticism, Gauri Lankesh [46].   Truth, non-violence and peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Please eschew the mendacious Mainstream media, support the humanitarian Alternative media,  and tell everyone you can.
