UK, US And Israeli State Terrorism
And Western Holocaust Denial

By Gideon Polya

21 December, 2006

Holocaust denial is repugnant because it denies the horrendous suffering of those who died; it adds to the continuing suffering of their surviving, grieving families and descendants; and it threatens repetition of such atrocities because History ignored yields History repeated. Indeed for these reasons denial of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (6 million victims) is illegal in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Israel and Switzerland and the WW1 Armenian Genocide (1.5 million victims) is variously being criminalized in Belgium and France.

There has been much legitimate criticism of the recent Teheran Holocaust Conference because of the suggestion of Holocaust denial implicit in such an event and the attendance of some notorious, right-wing holocaust deniers or revisionists. Yet Holocaust Denial is exactly what racist, lying Western academics, politicians and media have been guilty of in relation to past and present Western-imposed Holocausts in Asian countries, including India.

Thus Western academics, journalists and politicians generally IGNORE the WW2 man-made Bengal Famine in British-ruled India that killed 4 million - it was associated with a 1940s demographic deficit of 10 million, horrendous military and civilian sexual abuse of starving Indian women and girls, and may have been due to a deliberate, cold-blooded British scorched earth policy to discourage Japanese invasion from Burma. This Bengal Holocaust became a Forgotten Holocaust – it has been deleted from most British history books and from general public perception in a continuing process of egregious Holocaust Denial. Yet it was to the WW2 Bengal Famine that the word “Holocaust” was first applied - in 1944 by Jog, N.G. (1944), Churchill’s Blind-Spot: India (New Book Company, Bombay) (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blogspot.com/ ).

The West has gone so far as to criminalize Holocaust Denial in relation to the Jewish Holocaust in many Western European countries (arguably a good thing) – but it exhibits entrenched Holocaust Denial in relation to Indian and Asian Holocausts. Thus racist, lying Western Mainstream media ignore the 1.5 billion excess deaths during the brutal British occupation of India, and 18 million excess deaths due to US Asian Wars – and they continue to ignore and deny horrendous Asian excess deaths due to British State Terrorism, US State Terrorism and UK-US-backed Israeli State Terrorism (for a recent analysis entitled “Bush & Blair Holocaust Commission and Denial” see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ ).

Some key Western-complicit “excess death” estimates derived from authoritative sources such as the UN Population Division, UNICEF, WHO and the top medical literature (e.g. see WHO: http://www.who.int/en/ ; UNODC: http://www.unodc.org/unodc/index.html ; UNICEF: http://www.unicef.org/ ; UN Population Division: http://esa.un.org/unpp/ ) are given below

1. Global Muslim Holocaust. The post-1950 global avoidable mortality totals 1.3 billion including 0.6 billion avoidable deaths in the Muslim World – 100 times greater than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (6 million victims) or the contemporaneous but forgotten man-made Bengal Famine in British-ruled India (4 million victims and a 1940s demographic deficit in Bengal of over 10 million). There have been 18 million excess deaths associated with post-1950 US Asian wars; post-1950 excess deaths and undr-5 infant deaths in countries occupied by Israel total 24 million and 17 million, respectively. US-Israeli State terrorism and UK-US State Terrorism come at a terrible human cost – thus, as detailed below, post-invasion excess deaths in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories total 3.3 million but in comparison 7,000 Western civilians have been murdered by Muslim-origin non-state terrorists over the last 40 years (including Israelis and making the very arguable assumption of no American or Israeli complicity in 9/11) (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blogspot.com/ ).

2. The post-invasion excess deaths in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories total 0.3, 0.9 and 2.1 million, respectively – 60% infants, mostly Women and Children and largely due to Occupier violation of the Geneva, Universal Human Rights, Genocide and Rights of the Child Conventions that demand unequivocally that Occupiers keep their Conquered Subjects ALIVE (see: Geneva Conventions: http://www.genevaconventions.org/ ; Geneva Conventions relative to protection of Civilians in time of war: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/92.htm ; UN Genocide Convention: http://www.edwebproject.org/sideshow/genocide/convention.html ; UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: http://www.un.org/Overview/rights.html ; UN Rights of the Child Convention: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/k2crc.htm ).

3. Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Genocides – the Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Holocausts. There are about 6 million Palestinian refugees; about 80,000 flee their Homeland each year; about 80% of West Bank Christian Arabs have fled; 3.5 million Occupied Palestinians have been imprisoned by Israel in abusive, illegal and traumatizing conditions for nearly 40 years; 1.5 million Israeli Arabs are subject to racial discrimination including the requirement fro compulsory carriage of race-specifying ID (cf Nazi era Europe). The UN estimates that 2 million Iraqis have fled their Homeland and about 100,000 are fleeing US-occupied Iraq each month. There are about 3.7 million Afghan refugees. Consult UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/ ) and you will discover that roughly 0.5 million under-5 year old infants die each year in these Occupied Territories i.e. 1,300 daily (e.g. on Christmas Day) or one per minute. This is egregious Genocide as defined by the UN Genocide Convention (see: http://www.edwebproject.org/sideshow/genocide/convention.html ).

US-Israeli State Terrorists (USISTs) and Racist Zionists (RZs) have been obscenely exploiting the horrendous reality of the Jewish Holocaust and have also been actively promoting anti-Arab anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and anti-Asian xenophobia that is now entrenched in the West. As shown by the above statistics, the Racist Zionists (RZs) and the Racist Bush-ites (RBs) – most notably the Racist Religious Right Republican (R4) Bush-ites and the Bush-ites of US lackeys such as the UK and Racist White Australia - are involved in egregious Holocaust Commission AND Holocaust denial.

Dr Gideon Polya published some 130 works in a 4 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003). He is a Melbourne scientist and writer and is currently editing a completed book on global avoidable mortality (numerous articles on this matter can be found by a simple Google search for "Gideon Polya" and on his websites: http://members.optusnet.com.au/~gpolya/links.html and http://globalavoidablemortality.blogspot.com/).
