US, UK & Australia back Apartheid Israel
US and Australia must be described as racist states because of their continuing, appalling record of race-based human rights abuse of foreign subjects. The slavishly pro-Zionist Australian Labor Government has resolutely backed Apartheid Israel’s latest ongoing massacre of Palestinians in what the Catholic Church has described as the Gaza Concentration Camp.
Australia has enacted highly discriminatory, race-based policies against Indigenous Australians and Asian refugees in Australia, has grossly violated the Geneva Convention in relation to the genocidal mass murder of its Iraqi and Afghan subjects, and is involved in a continuing Aboriginal ethnocide and an Aboriginal Genocide in which 9,000 Indigenous Australians die avoidably each year out of an Indigenous population of 500,000, the worst avoidable death rate in the world and occurring in one of the world’s richest countries.
It is hardly surprising therefore that Australia is a staunch supporter of Apartheid Israel and its violent, genocidal oppression of the Palestinians as exhibited in its current latest massacre of Palestinians in Gaza (as of today, 143 killed and 1,000 wounded by Israeli shelling and bombing versus 5 Israelis killed by a homemade Gaza rocket). Palestinian deaths from violence (0.1 million) or from violently-imposed deprivation (1.9 million) total 2.0 million since 1936 (in contrast about 3,700 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians since 1920; Google “Palestinian Genocide”). Indeed in Apartheid Australia financial donations toward the Palestinian Genocide are tax deductible whereas a donation towards a Gaza orphanage could attract life imprisonment under Australia’s draconian, intrinsically anti-Arab anti-Semitic and Islamophobic Anti-terrorism Laws.
Both Australia and Israel were staunch supporters of the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Australia is a major supplier of uranium to Western nuclear terrorist states (the US, UK and France), countries that enabled Apartheid Israel to acquire its present arsenal of 200 nuclear weapons. Israel thence enabled Apartheid South Africa to obtain nuclear weapons that were discarded in the middle 1990s with the fall of the Apartheid regime.
The racism of these 3 states of Australia, Israel and Apartheid South Africa has its origin in Western European genocidal racism associated with European colonialism (for a cogent analysis read Sven Lindqvist’s brilliant book “Exterminate All the Brutes”). European colonialism involved genocidal removal of Indigenous people from lands amenable to European-style agriculture in North America, South America, Southern Africa, Kenya, Australia, New Zealand and most recently in Palestine that has now been 90% ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinians by the racist Zionist colonizers.
European colonization in tropical and subtropical areas variously involved the brutal exploitation of Indigenous labor, imported slave labor from Africa and latterly imported indentured Asian labor (3 to 5-year slaves) to plant and harvest crops such as corn, indigo, opium, rice, flax, cotton, rubber, tobacco and sugar cane. Thus the Belgians massacred 10 million Congolese in their greed for rubber, with the British committing similar atrocities for the same reason in Peru. The British enslavement of India resulted in an estimated 1,800 million avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation, the most recent atrocity being the 1942-1945 WW2 Bengali Holocaust in which the British (with Australian complicity) deliberately starved 6-7 million Indians to death for strategic reasons. The 19th century British invasion of China resulted in the Opium Wars and the Tai Ping Rebellion that was associated with 20-100 million Chinese deaths (the 1937-1945 occupation of China by the Japanese was associated with 35 million Chinese deaths) (see my book “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, now available for free perusal on the Web).
Jewish American scholar Professor Jared Diamond has outlined the biological rationale for genocidal European colonialism in his book “Guns, Germs and Steel” and in his subsequent book “Collapse” (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition) enunciated the "moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people" – an injunction grossly violated by Zionist-run Israel and its racist, genocide-committing and genocide-ignoring US Alliance backers, including Australia.
Indeed Australia has a secret genocide history involving participation in over 20 genocidal atrocities, most notably (deaths from violence or violently-imposed deprivation in parentheses) the post-1950 US Asian wars (38 million deaths since 1950), the Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths since 1990), the ongoing Afghan Genocide (5.6 million deaths since 2001) and the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide (2.0 million deaths since 1788) (Google “Australia’s secret genocide history” and “Muslim Holocaust Muslim Genocide”:) .
History ignored yields history repeated and censorship by the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist-beholden Mainstream media ensures that holocausts and genocides will continue if they are affected by the US Alliance (for a cogent analysis see “Review: The Politics of Genocide”, Countercurrents , 5 December 2011).
Thus, to give just one example, on 20 November 2012 The Age newspaper (Melbourne) published an article on-line by David Flitton about non-Mainstream reportage of the latest Israeli Gaza Massacre and entitled “Twitter’s take on war reporting is one of gleeful voyeurism”. My submitted comments below were completely censored by The Age which has an appalling record of censoring informed, credentialed comments that it evidently does not want its readers to read, know about or think about (Google “Censorship by The Age”).
DELETED COMMENTS: “Alternative media and social media are the only avenues for written and video reportage from embattled Gaza when the Mainstream media resolutely refuse to report - or more importantly, effectively report - the horrendous Elephant in the Room realities through a process of what outstanding expatriate Australian journalist John Pilger has called censorship by omission and censorship by commission. Thus concerning what many scholars and writers call the ongoing Palestinian Genocide (2 million dead from violence or violently -imposed deprivation since 1936):
1. In 1880 in Ottoman Palestine there were 500,000 Arab Palestinians and 25,000 Jews (50% immigrants).
2. In 1945 after the British had decided to Partition Palestine, 1/3 of the population was Jewish (overwhelmingly colonizers) and 2/3 Arab and only 10% of the land had been alienated.
3. In 1948 the Israelis seized 78% of Palestine and Israeli terrorism expelled 0.8 million Indigenous Palestinians. In 1967 a now nuclear-armed Apartheid Israel seized 100% of Palestine plus a slab of Egypt and a slab of Syria which it proceeded to ethnically cleanse.
4. In 2012, 90% of Palestine has been ethnically cleansed and of 12 million Palestinians, 6 million are excluded from Palestine and only 6.7% are permitted by democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel to vote for the government ruling all of Palestine.”
Back the mid-20th century Australia’s most eminent Jewish public figure, Sir Isaac Isaacs (the first Australian-born Governor-General of Australia) unequivocally condemned racist Zionism thus: “The honor of Jews throughout the world demands the renunciation of political Zionism” and "The Zionist movement as a whole...now places its own unwarranted interpretation on the Balfour Declaration, and makes demands that are arousing the antagonism of the Muslim world of nearly 400 millions, thereby menacing the safety of our Empire, endangering world peace and imperiling some of the most sacred associations of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. Besides their inherent injustice to others these demands would, I believe, seriously and detrimentally affect the general position of Jews throughout the world."
Unfortunately pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey, neoliberal Australian Lib-Labs (aka the Liberal-Laborals, the Liberal–National Party Coalition Opposition and the Labor Government) ignore the advice of Australia’s most eminent Jewish citizen, Sir Isaac Isaacs, and numerous other anti-racist Jewish Australians (Google “Jews Against Racist Zionism”), preferring the advice of the genocidal, nuclear terrorist racist Zionists running Apartheid Israel and their traitorous racist Zionist supporters.
Ignoring the reality that the present violence was initiated by the recent egregious Israeli bombing attack on Gaza, the Zionist-beholden Australian Government, like the similarly Zionist-beholden US, UK and Canadian Governments, has jumped to support Apartheid Israel.
Thus Australian Labor Government Prime Minister PM Julia Gillard:
''The government condemns the repeated rocket and mortar attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip and calls on Hamas to cease these immediately. Australia supports Israel's right to defend itself against these indiscriminate attacks. Such attacks on Israel's civilian population are utterly unacceptable'' (“Gillard condemns attacks on Israel”, The Age, 16 November 2012).
Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr similarly blames the Occupied Palestinians for the violence and is concerned for Israel suffering a backlash due to world perception of disproportionate Israeli action : “Any Israeli reaction has got to take into account the great danger of civilian casualties, of the danger of the world seeing it as a disproportionate reaction even though the rocket attacks on Israel are the key cause of this tension” (“Bob Carr warns Israel of a potential world backlash over its bombing of Gaza”, The Australian, 18 November 2012 ).
Decent Australians long for a return to the decent values of the all too brief 1972-1975 period of rule by the Whitlam Labor Government that was terminated by a US-backed Coup. One wonders how it is possible for a PM and a FM of Australia, one of the World’s oldest democracies, to come out in support of democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel when it is perpetrating its worst atrocity since its 2008-2009 Operation Cast Lead in which it killed 1,500 Gaza Palestinians and wounded 5,000 in response to ZERO Israeli deaths from Gaza rockets in the previous 12 months. The most generous answer is that Australian public perception of Middle East is heavily determined by the lying by commission and lying by omission of the Zionist-beholden Mainstream media. Indeed it is very appropriate that an anagram of ISRAEL is e-LIARS. Unrestrained Israeli lying, murderous violence, theft and ethnic cleansing have now made a 1-state solution the only just and viable solution left for Palestine.
Decent people around the world will urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against genocidal racist, nuclear terrorist, Zionist-run Apartheid Israel and against its backers. In Australia that means that decent people - and notably Muslims, Arab-origin Australians and anti-racist Jews - should vote 1 Green and put Labor last until it reverts to decent Labor values and makes a groveling apology to decent Labor voters for its disgraceful, anti-democracy support for genocidal racist, Apartheid Israel. The US, UK and Apartheid Australia are backing Apartheid Israel - just as they and Apartheid Israel backed Apartheid South Africa - and are accordingly inviting international Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against nations of the anti-Arab anti-Semitic US Alliance.
