US Holocaust Commission
And Holocaust Denial

By Dr Gideon Polya

01 February, 2007

The US recently successfully put a Resolution to UN General Assembly RIGHTLY condemning Holocaust Denial. However the Resolution ignored huge non-Jewish Holocausts e.g. the US-driven Iraqi Holocaust and thus was Holocaust Ignoring, something even WORSE than Holocaust Denial because it is Passive Holocaust Denial that admits of no refutation – who does one refute something that has not even been asserted?

This US Resolution was an act of (a) gross dishonesty and (b) gross hypocrisy. Thus (a) the dishonest IMPLICATION was that Iran (not mentioned in the Resolution but mentioned in the US and Israeli UN speeches) has offended – yet the Iranian delegate made it quite clear that Iran recognized the horror of the Jewish Holocaust and condemned the “Genocide and immense sufferings associated with that horrific crime” (words of the Iranian delegate) (see: http://www.newsbull.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=40398 ); and (b) the US is actively involved in on-going Holocaust Commission in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan and, together with Israel, has been involved in obscene, public promotion of an Iranian Holocaust involving nuclear weapons.

By NOT specifying OTHER Holocausts the US Resolution was an act of egregious Holocaust Ignoring i.e. PASSIVE Holocaust Denial. The Resolution SHOULD have condemned ANY denial of ANY Holocaust.

Major Holocausts over the last century or so NOT mentioned in the US Resolution include the following (in order of occurrence): the 1904-1907 German Namibian Genocide (the Herero population dropped from 80,000 to 15,000); the 1915-1918 Turkish Armenian Genocide (1 million victims – still denied by Turkey); the 1930-1933 Russian Ukrainian Genocide (5 million victims); the 1937-1945 Japanese invasion of China (35 million Chinese victims); the non-Jewish victims of the Nazi German World War 2 Holocaust – 20 million Soviet citizens, 6 million Poles (half of them Jewish), 1 million Serbs, 0.5 million other Yugoslavs and 0.5 million Roma (Gypsies); the man-made, 1943/44 British Bengali Holocaust (4 million victims – still largely written out of British history books); the 1947 Indian Partition (1 million victims); the 1994 Hutu Rwandan Genocide (1 million victims); the 1971 West Pakistani Bengali Holocaust (3 million victims, 80% male; 0.3 million women raped by the US-backed West Pakistan military); the 1965 Indonesian Genocide (1 million victims); the 1975-2000 Indonesian East Timorese Genocide (0.2 million victims out of a population of about 0.6 million); the US Indo-China war (13 million excess deaths); the post-1950 First World-driven Third World Holocaust (1.2 billion excess deaths, mainly in Africa, Asia and South America); and the post-1950 First World-driven Muslim Holocaust (0.6 billion excess deaths; mainly in Africa and Asia).

Conspicuously absent from the US Resolution were the ongoing 1990-2007 Iraqi Holocaust ( 2.6 million excess deaths and 3.7 million refugees so far); and the 2001-2007 Afghan Holocaust (2.2 million excess deaths and 3.7 million refugees so far) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ , http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11849/42/ , http://mwcnews.net/content/view/12163/42/ and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11968/42/ ) .

Not content with horrendous Holocaust Commission and Holocaust Denial in relation to the Iraqi Genocide (Iraqi Holocaust) and the Afghan Genocide (Afghan Holocaust), the US and its proxy Israel have both been threatening pre-emptive nuclear attack on peaceful, non-nuclear-armed, non-aggressive Iran (a Google search for the obscene phrase “nuke Iran” and for the phrase “Jewish Holocaust” today yielded about 0.3 million URLs in both cases) – clear, unequivocal and horrifying Holocaust Promotion.

It is not only the US that is involved in Holocaust Promotion, Holocaust Commission, Holocaust Ignoring and Holocaust Denial - the UK, Australia and their Coalition and NATO Allies are also involved in Holocaust Commission and Holocaust Denial in relation to both Afghanistan and Iraq (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ ). Racist White Australia has been involved in all the US post-1950 Asian wars, is currently actively involved in the Iraqi Holocaust and the Afghan Holocaust and is in practical denial over the appalling, ongoing Australian Aboriginal Genocide (the annual death rate of Australian Aborigines, 2.2%, is similar to that of Australian sheep, 2.5%) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/10865/26/ ). Israel as a key partner in US-Israeli State Terrorism is involved in an ongoing Palestinian Genocide (post-invasion excess deaths 0.3 million; 6 million Palestinian refugees; 3.5 million Occupied Palestinians held in abusive captivity for 40 years) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11409/42/ ).

The Occupier of another country has acute, unequivocal responsibilities under the Geneva Conventions to keep its conquered subjects ALIVE (read them, especially Articles 55 & 56: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/92.htm ). The US, UK, Australia, the Coalition and NATO have grossly violated these obligations in Occupied Afghanistan as shown by the following estimations from UN Population Division data and UNICEF data.

(a) From UN Population Division data (see: http://esa.un.org/unpp/ ) the post-invasion excess deaths (avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan now total (as of January 2007) 0.9 million and 2.2 million, respectively - mostly Women and Children and mostly through US alliance violation of the Geneva Conventions.

(b) From the same source, the post-invasion under-5 infant deaths in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan now total 0.5 million and 1.9 million, respectively.

(c) Year 2005 annual under-5 infant death rate (i.e. as a percentage: deaths for every 100 under-5 year old infants in 2005 in a particular country) was 6.7% (Occupied Afghanistan ); 2.8% (Occupied Iraq); 5.5% (Occupied Somalia); 2.7% (Occupied Haiti); and 0.47% (Occupied Palestinian Territory) – as compared to 0.12% (Occupier Australia) and 0.12% (Occupier Israel)(as determined from the latest UNICEF data: http://www.unicef.org/ ; for detailed analysis see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11968/42/ ).

The war criminality of what the US and its allies the UK, Australia, and complicit Coalition and NATO countries are doing in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories can be most dramatically seen by comparing the above annual under-5 infant death rates in those Occupied Territories (2.8% and 6.7%, respectively) with the “annual death rate” of 10% for Australian prisoners of war (POWs) of the Japanese in WW2 - noting that for crimes such as this Japanese generals were tried and hanged in the aftermath of that conflict.

In summary, the US recently put up a UN resolution RIGHTLY condemning the obscenity of Holocaust Denial - however this was an act of gross hypocrisy and dishonesty because the Resolution IGNORED numerous OTHER Holocausts including the ON-GOING Iraqi Holocaust and the ON-GOING Afghan Holocaust (post-invasion excess deaths 0.9 million and 2.2 million, respectively PLUS refugees totalling about 3.7 million for EACH occupied country EQUALS Genocide and Holocaust). The US, the UK and their Allies are involved in Holocaust Promotion, Holocaust Commission, Holocaust Ignoring and Holocaust Denial in relation to both Afghanistan and Iraq (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ ).

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent people are absolutely obliged to INFORM OTHERS about such horrendous abuses of humanity and to act ethically in all their dealings with those complicit in such horrendous crimes. Sanctions and Boycotts that were effective against the racist Apartheid regime in South Africa are surely urgently required now in the face of egregious Anglo-American Holocaust Promotion, Holocaust Commission, Holocaust Ignoring 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/).
