Neocon- And Zionist-Pressured UK New Statesman
Censors Anti-Racist Jewish Opinion

By Dr Gideon Polya

01 June, 2012

Censorship is repugnant because it prevents sensible interlocution, scholarly communication, scholarship, scientific research and science-based rational risk management crucial for human safety. For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “never again to anyone”, “bear witness” and “zero tolerance for lying”. Accordingly, anti-racist Jews in particular are inescapably obliged to speak out about racism and human rights abuses and censorship of anti-racist Jewish opinion is particularly  repugnant.

The New Statesman is leading UK weekly that has a moderately  progressive stance. Indeed I have been reading the New Statesman for over 50 years. It provides a welcome alternative to the propaganda of the Establishment-, Neocon American- and Zionist-subverted Mainstream media  of the Anglo Murdochracies  and Lobbyocracies in which Big Money buys public perception of reality, politicians, parties, policies and votes. 

However the New Statesman is also susceptible to such anti-truth and anti-democracy influences. Thus the New Statesman permits its website to publish the most horrendous, false defamation of anti-racist Jews (for horrible examples see the Comment Thread on the article "The NS Interview: Norman Finkelstein": http://www.newstatesman.com/middle-east/2011/07/israel-interview-holocaust  ) while on the other hand censoring articulate, informed, credentialed,  anti-racist Jewish and anti-racist non-Jewish opinion critical of  the genocidal crimes of the Zionist-beholden US Alliance and of  racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel, presumably as containing things it does not want its readers to read, know about or think about (see “Censorship by The New Statesman”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/cens  ).

Of course the New Statesman is not alone in such Neocon American- and Zionist-connected censorship which is entrenched in Western mainstream media e.g. by the ABC (Australia's equivalent of the BBC), by The Age (arguably Australia's most progressive Mainstream newspaper) and by the Australian taxpayer-funded, universities- and CSIRO-backed and academic-based web magazine The Conversation ( see “Censorship by The Conversation”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/censorship-by  ; “Censorship by The Age”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/censorship-by-the-age  ; “Censorship by ABC Late Night Live”: https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbyabclatenightlive/  ; “ABC Censorship”: https://sites.google.com/site/abccensorship/  ; “Censorship by the ABC”: https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbytheabc/  ; “Censorship by the BBC”: https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbythebbc/  ;  “Mainstream Media Lying”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammedialying/  ; and “Mainstream Media Censorship”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/  ).  

I am a 5-decade career Australian scientist and an anti-racist humanitarian. Inspired by the example of WW2 Polish hero Jan Karski who tried to tell a disbelieving world about the Jewish Holocaust as it was happening, I have been attempting, under my own name (Dr Gideon Polya),  to report the human cost of the Palestinian Genocide (2 million deaths from violence or violently-imposed deprivation since 1936) and the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims (12 million deaths from war or war-imposed deprivation since 1990). Mainstream media steadfastly refuse to report these horrendous realities and censor such reportage.

It must be noted that genocide ignoring or holocaust ignoring – as exhibited by Mainstream media in relation to the ongoing Palestinian Holocaust, Palestinian Genocide, Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide – is far, far worse than utterly repugnant genocide denial or holocaust denial, because at least denial permits the possibility of discussion.

The "Censorship by The New Statesman" website records examples of egregious censorship of my anti-racist humanitarian opinions by the New Statesman that I first noticed occurring in its new format in mid-May 2012.  This has been  provided in the interests of Humanity as an objective record of what a leading progressive UK magazine  will not permit its readers to read. I have simply recorded  all posts I have made to articles in the New Statesman since mid-May 2012, highlighting those that have been censored out. An example is provided below:

On 23 May 2012 the News Statesman published an article by UK Labour leader Ed Miliband entitled “Ed Miliband: the patriotism of the refugee”: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/politics/2012/05/ed-miliband-patriotism-refugee?page=3  . I posted the following comments which survived for some days and then were COMPLETELY CENSORED, presumably for containing things the New Statesman  does not want its readers to read, know about or think about (for more details of this censorship by the New Statesman see Newsvine: http://gpolya.newsvine.com/_news/2012/05/24/11869550-new-statesman-jewish-british-ed-miliband-the-patriotism-of-a-refugee  ).

CENSORED COMMENT: “For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “bear witness”, “zero tolerance for lying” and “never again to anyone”, anyone including the Indigenous Palestinian victims of the racist Zionist Palestinian Genocide (see "Palestinian Genocide": https://sites.google.com/site/palestiniangenocide/   ) - 2 million dead since 1936, 0.1 million from violence, 1.9 million from war-, expulsion- and occupation-derived deprivation; 7 million refugees; 4.1 million Occupied Palestinians deprived of ALL the human rights listed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ; 6 million Palestinians forbidden to even live in the homeland continuously inhabited by their forbears to the very dawn of agrarian civilization; 800,000 Palestinians children confined without charge or trial to what the Catholic Church has described as Israel's Gaza Concentration Camp for the asserted "crime" of being Indigenous Palestinians living in a tiny, remorselessly Zionist-bombed patch of Palestine .

Ed Miliband's parents are anti-racist Jews who believe in justice for the 12 million Indigenous Palestinians of whom only the adults of the 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis (i.e. about 6.7%) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus an ethnically cleansed slab of Syria .

Ed Milliband as an elected politician in an ostensible democracy either believes in one man one vote NOW for everyone (including Palestinians) or he doesn't - if he doesn't he should be kicked out at the first opportunity by the Labor Party and the voters of Doncaster North.

Ed Miliband merely trots out the mantra "I support a two-state solution because I long for the peace that both Palestinians and Israelis need so badly" - yet if he had offered the same opinion about Apartheid Israel-supported Apartheid South Africa "I support a two-state solution involving 90% of the country for the Whites and 10% for the majority Non-Europeans in uneconomic Bantustans" his political career would have been finished.

Disraeli (a convert to "God is an Englishman" Anglicanism) [a previous Jewish British party leader] was a mass murderer complicit in the Irish Famine (1 million starved to death, 1-2 million forced into exile), the butchery of 10 million Indians in the decade after the 1857 Indian Rebellion, and genocidal atrocities in all parts of the British Empire, not least in India where 500 million Indians died avoidably from British imposed deprivation under Queen Victoria alone (1837-1901) (read my books "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950": http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/body-count-global-avoidable-mortality_05.html   and "Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History":  http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com.au/    now available for free perusal on the Web ).

From an extremely charitable anti-racist Jewish perspective Ed Miliband is at the very least "confused" and should seek moral guidance from a large body of outstanding anti-racist Jews from Arendt to Zinn (see "Jews Against Racist Zionism": https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/  ). As a refugee from both the anti-racist and anti-Zionist Orthodox Jewish tradition and from the anti-racist, anti-Zionist secular Jewish tradition, Ed Miliband should also seek moral guidance from a large body of outstanding anti-racist non-Jews including the likes of Nobel Laureates Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter, Máiread Maguire and José Saramago who have unequivocally condemned the ongoing Palestinian Genocide by Apartheid Israel (see "Non-Jews Against Racist Zionism": https://sites.google.com/site/nonjewsagainstracistzionism/  ).” END CENSORED COMMENT.


Neocon American and Zionist (NAZI)-derived Mainstream media censorship enables the continuation of the Palestinian Genocide (2 million invasion-related deaths since 1936, 7 million refugees) and the Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide (12 million war-related deaths since 1990; 20 million refugees; see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide": https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/  ). It is possible to get through the Mainstream media's Wall of Silence - please tell everyone you can.

Dr Gideon Polya has been teaching science students at a major Australian university for 4 decades. He published some 130 works in a 5 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London , 2003). He has published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ); see also his contributions “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007: http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/ockham/stories/s1445960.htm ) and “Ongoing Palestinian Genocide” in “The Plight of the Palestinians (edited by William Cook, Palgrave Macmillan, London, 2010: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/4047-the-plight-of-the-palestinians.html ). He has published a revised and updated 2008 version of his 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History” (see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ) as biofuel-, globalization- and climate-driven global food price increases threaten a greater famine catastrophe than the man-made famine in British-ruled India that killed 6-7 million Indians in the “forgotten” World War 2 Bengal Famine (see recent BBC broadcast involving Dr Polya, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and others: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot/ bengalfamine_programme.html ).
