100th Anniversary of Australian Beersheba Charge, UK Balfour Declaration & Palestinian Genocide Commencement

There are 3 Apartheid Israel-related centenaries this week, namely (1) the victorious 31 October 1917 charge of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba that led to conquest of Palestine by Britain and massive famine, (2) the nefarious and racist UK Balfour Declaration of 2 November 1917  that gave Palestine to Zionists as a Jewish Homeland as an inducement to help keep Russia in WW1, and (3) commencement of the Palestine Genocide (2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, or imposed deprivation, 1.9 million, since WW1).

History ignored yields history repeated and genocide ignored yields genocide repeated [1]. Anniversaries are useful occasions to remember key past events, and especially those  that led to appalling holocausts (deaths of huge numbers of people) and genocides (genocide being defined by the UN Genocide Convention as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group” [2]). Thus 2016 marked the 950th anniversary of “1066 and all that” – the invasion of Anglo-Saxon England  by the French Normans under William the Conqueror and commencement of the genocide of the northern Anglo-Saxons (the so-called “Harrying of the North” in 1069-1070 in which northern England was devastated by mass murder, destruction of villages and famine)  [3].  The New Establishment of England thence moved to genocidal conquest of  Celtic Britain (Cornwall, Wales, Ireland and Scotland)  and by the 16th century had started centuries of global conquest by England that saw the invasion and mostly genocidal conquest of 193 countries on all inhabited continents  around the world.

The British have invaded 193 countries as compared to British off-shoot Australia 85, France 82, the US 72 (52 after WW2), Germany 39, Japan 30, Russia 25, Canada 25,   Apartheid Israel 12,  China 2 , and North Korea zero (0) [3-9]. These invasions were accompanied by mass mortality due to (1) lack of resistance to European-introduced diseases among the conquered  Indigenous populations of the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific  Islands) [10- 17], and (2) war- ,occupation- and enslavement-imposed deprivation in all these countries but on a gigantic scale in Africa, China and India [1, 13, 18-31],

Thus 2017 marks the 260th anniversary of the 1757 Battle of Plassey (Palashi) north of Calcutta (Kolkata) in which the British forces under Robert Clive deceitfully defeated the Bengali forces under the Bengali Nawab Suraj ud-Daulah [28] and thence commenced 2 centuries of deadly and destructive rule of the British in India. It is estimated that 1,800 million Indians died avoidably from brutally-imposed deprivation under the British [27]. Thus despite a very high birth rate the Indian population was about 290 million at the time of the 1857 Indian Rebellion (1857 Indian Mutiny) and about 290 million  in 1933 three-quarters of a century  later [29-31]. Another perspective on this is that average Indian life expectancy was 27 years under the rapacious and merciless British [26, 31]. This remorseless, slow, routine avoidable mortality was punctuated by horrendous regularly recurring famines from the 1769-1770 Great Bengal Famine (10 million killed) to the “forgotten” WW2 Indian Holocaust (Bengali Holocaust, 1942-1945 Bengal Famine) in which 6-7 million Indians were deliberately starved to death in Bengal and neighbouring provinces by the British  with Australian complicity [1, 21, 22].  2017 marks the 160th anniversary of the Indian Rebellion (Indian Mutiny) which the British subdued and then followed by a decade of genocidal reprisals in which as many as 10 million Indians were killed [23-25]. 2017 also marks the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence  but the genocidal British were not finished – their final legacy was Partition that killed 1 million Indians and generated 20 million refugees [1, 13].

Below are presented details of this week’s 100th Anniversary of  the WW1 Australian Beersheba Charge, the UK Balfour Declaration and the commencement of the  Palestinian Genocide in 1917.

  1.  31 October 1917 Australian Beersheba Charge, British Empire conquest of Palestine and Palestinian Famine.

This week variously ignorant or mendacious Australian jingoists are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the famous charge of the Australian 4th Light Horse Brigade of the Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Mounted Division on 31 October 1917 that captured Beersheba and thus fatally compromised the Ottoman Turkish defensive line stretching from Beersheba to Gaza on the Mediterranean coast. Palestine and thence Syria rapidly fell to the British under General Allenby [32]. While this was a famous cavalry charge that is much celebrated in mindlessly racist and jingoist Australia, the immediate consequences for the Palestinians were devastating. War-imposed deprivation in Palestine under the genocidal British was associated with  a Palestinian Famine in which 100,000 Palestinian died as estimated from a catastrophic 100,000 population deficit in WW1 Palestine [33-36].

No doubt rape and murder of Palestinian civilians followed the Australian, New Zealand and British victory in Palestine – it is implausible  to suppose that  the genocidally racist British Empire forces did not engage in  rapacious violence in Palestine,  if not to the horrendous extent of  the Russian forces that invaded Nazi Germany and Berlin in 1944-1945 [37-39]. Indeed in the context of a WW1 Palestinian Famine under the British and Australians, one notes that during the Australia-complicit WW2 Bengal Famine (6-7 million Indians starved to death by the British with Australian complicity) there was large-scale civilian and military sexual abuse of starving women and girls on a scale (circa 300,000 victims) commensurate with the “comfort women” sexual abuses of the Japanese Imperial military in WW2 [1, 40]. In 2018 the civilized world will mark the 100th anniversary of the Surafend Massacre (10 December 1918) in which Anzac soldiers deliberately massacred about 100 male Palestinian villagers in retaliation for the shooting death of a New Zealand soldier at the hands of a surprised Bedouin thief [41-43].

  1.  2 November 2017 Balfour Declaration and theft of a country.

A mere  2 days after the victorious charge of the Australian Light horse at Beersheba – that is, effectively immediately after the event –  the evil, racist and warmongering British Foreign Secretary, Arthur Balfour,  issued the notorious Balfour Declaration as a letter dated 2 November 1917 to Lord Walter Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland (the British press published the letter  on 9 November 1917): “His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country” [44]. The caveat of no detriment to either Jews or Indigenous Palestinians was rapidly ignored by the genocidally racist British and the genocidally racist Zionists, this  leading rapidly to a worsening Palestinian Genocide (that is still proceeding apace) and to the Jewish Genocide by the Nazi Germans (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or imposed deprivation) on the basis that there was no place for Jews in Europe as advocated by the Nazi-collaborating Zionists.

Arthur Balfour (1848- 1930), was a degenerate, racist and wealthy warmonger who played an important  role in the genesis of the obscenities of both WW1 and WW2 in which 40 million and 100 million people died, respectively (this ignoring  the post-WW1 influenza epidemic that killed 50 million people world wide) [1, 13, 45, 46] . British writer William Gerhardie saw WW1 and thence WW2 as fundamentally deriving from competing national economic systems that wanted a fair share or more than a fair share of dominating world markets for national Establishment profit (“the scramble for world markets”). Restricted from domestic sales of goods to the impoverished workers producing them, the imperialist powers sought to export goods and accompanying debt to the world at large [47, 48]. William Gerhardie in his important book “God’s Fifth Column” [47, 48] describes  Arthur Balfour as an extremely wealthy, Cambridge Trinity College-trained  philosopher,  steel industry heir at 21,  UK PM 1902-1905, violent suppressor of the Irish agrarian poor, Leader of the Opposition 1906 – 1911 , First Lord of the Admiralty 1915-1916, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs 1916-1919,   war profiteer,  warmonger, and snob – as well as being the  and thieving, racist author  of the infamous Balfour Declaration that allocated the newly-conquered land of the Palestinians to the racist Zionists as  a Jewish Homeland. A callous, warmongering Balfour famously declared (as one of Britain ‘s richest people): “Nothing matters very much and few things matter at all” [49] .

William Gerhardie commented on childless and unmarried Balfour thus : “Dear Arthur , whose hand in Irish politics in the closing  century was to pave the way for De Valera, and whose hand in making the peace by pandering to the senile cynicism of Clemenceau was to pave the way for Hitler, and whose early graduation and long experience in diplomacy was to culminate in an achievement which set the Jews and Arabs by the ears in Palestine”([47], page 87). According to Jewish British Zionist and leading historian of Jewish History, WW1, WW2, and Churchill, Professor Sir Martin Gilbert [50], the Balfour Declaration (1917) was actually made to get traitorous Russian Zionists  to try to keep Russia in the war  (they were unsuccessful) ([51], page 373).  14 million variously grossly violated Indigenous  Palestinians  today can well understand the racist, humanity-despising mentality of Arthur Balfour that enabled this “Father of the Palestinian Genocide”  to dispassionately declare: “ Nothing matters very much and few things matter at all” [49].

  1.  1917 commencement of the ongoing Palestinian Genocide.

Some 20 territories other than Palestine have been proposed for a Zionist colony [52], including Australia (a well-backed scheme for Jewish settlement of NW Australia was finally vetoed in 1944 by the war-time Curtin Labor Government,  possibly on advice from the British Government) [53, 54],  but  the racist Zionists and successive  racist British Governments decided to colonize and thence ethnically cleanse Palestine (the decision to Partition Palestine was taken by the British War Cabinet in 1944). One notes that the genocidally racist psychopath Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism, was actually ambivalent over whether a Jewish State should be set up in Argentina or Palestine. In his book “Der Judenstaat” (“The Jewish State”)  Herzl declared (1896): “Shall we choose Palestine or Argentine? We shall take what is given us…  For Europe we shall constitute there [in Palestine] a sector of the wall against Asia, we shall serve as the vanguard of culture against barbarism” [55].

There were 25,000 Jews (half immigrants) and 500,000 Indigenous Palestinians in Palestine in 1880, and 250,000 Jews and 900,000 Indigenous Palestinians by the mid-1930s [33, 34, 56-58].  Jews represented one third of the population by 1948 and even today after 70 years of recurrent mass expulsions  (800,000 in the 1948 Nakba or Catastrophe and 400,000 more in the 1967 Naksa or Setback) and an ongoing murderous Palestinian Genocide (continuing dispossession, high avoidable mortality from dispossession and a high rate of violent killing of Palestinians),  Indigenous Palestinians still represent about 50% of the population of the Holy Land which is composed of 6.5 million Jewish Israelis, 0.4 million non-Arab and  non-Jewish Israelis, 1.8 million Indigenous Palestinian Israelis (second class citizens under Apartheid Israeli race laws) and 5.0 million Occupied Palestinians with zero human rights.

Those supporting Nazi Germany can be accurately described as “pro-Nazi” and those supporting US-, UK- , Australia- and Apartheid Israel-backed, neo-Nazi Apartheid South Africa can be accurately described as “pro-Apartheid”. Accordingly those supporting  US-, UK- , Australia-, Canada- and EU-backed Apartheid Israel can be accurately described as “pro-Apartheid”, noting that Apartheid is condemned by the UN Convention on Apartheid as a criminal violation of the UN Charter as set out by eminent lawyer John Dugard (Professor of International Law, Department of Public Law, Faculty of Law, Leiden University): “The Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (hereinafter Apartheid Convention) has it roots in the opposition of the United Nations to the discriminatory racial policies of the South African Government – known as apartheid – which lasted from 1948 to 1990. Apartheid was annually condemned by the General Assembly as contrary to Articles 55 and 56 of the Charter of the United Nations from 1952 until 1990; and was regularly condemned by the Security Council after 1960. In 1966, the General Assembly labelled apartheid as a crime against humanity (resolution 2202 A (XXI) of 16 December 1966) and in 1984 the Security Council endorsed this determination (resolution 556 (1984) of 23 October 1984). The Apartheid Convention was the ultimate step in the condemnation of apartheid as it not only declared that apartheid was unlawful because it violated the Charter of the United Nations, but in addition it declared apartheid to be criminal. The Apartheid Convention was adopted by the General Assembly on 30 November 1973, by 91 votes in favour, four against (Portugal, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States) and 26 abstentions. It came into force on 18 July 1976. As of August 2008, it has been ratified by 107 States” [59]. Neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel determines that 74% of its now 50% Indigenous Palestinian population are excluded from voting for the government ruling them. In its opposition to the UN Security Council Resolution 2334 that condemned Israeli war crimes in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (passed unanimously except for Obama US abstention) , Australia became second in the world after Trump America as a supporter of Apartheid Israel and hence of Apartheid [60].

Both Apartheid Israel and pro-Apartheid Australia have sought to claim the Australian Charge at Beersheba as a key military step in the Zionist project. Thus Paul Daley commented in the Guardian: “But the federal government is now cashed up (with some $600m at last count) to spend on [WW1] commemoration until the end of 2018. And, so, Beersheba will get its moment. It will pay to listen closely and to be wary about what you might hear from the Australian and Israeli governments. Israel? It didn’t exist, of course, at the time of the charge, which took place in what was then Ottoman Palestine. But Israel has gone to some lengths to claim what happened as something of a formative step in its establishment” [61]. However pro-Israel Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull’s media release  for welcoming serial war criminal Apartheid Israeli PM Netanyahu to Australia  referred to “our shared past” and more specifically asserted “Later this year we will jointly commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba, a foundation stone of the relationship” [62] . Serial war criminal Netanyahu echoed Turnbull’s falsehood on arriving in Australia this week:  “We admire Australia, we embrace Australia and this visit will enable us to bring our countries even closer. I’ve been here before and counted the years wanting to come back again and I’m very proud to be here as the first Israeli Prime Minister to make an official visit to Australia…We’re celebrating 100 years of friendship between Australia and Israel. I always remember, it was Australian light horse that liberated Beersheba, an old, old city in our history. We have been friends — extraordinary friends — ever since” [63, 64]. Indeed Australia Post joined with its Apartheid Israeli counterpart in issuing stamps in Hebrew and English commemorating the Beersheba charge [65].

The Beersheba Charge and the subsequent Balfour Declaration occurred within several days of each other (31 October 1917 and 2 November 1917, respectively) and hence the commencement of the Palestinian Genocide can be dated to these 2 almost simultaneous and connected events. Passive mass murder of 100,000 Palestinian through famine under the British quickly followed [33] as did the first active, violent mass murder by Australians of  about 100 Palestinians in the village of Surafend [41, 42]. The ongoing Palestinian Genocide has involved generation of a 7 million exiled Palestinian Diaspora, 8 million Palestinian refugees, ethnic cleansing of 90% of Palestine and   2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million,  or imposed deprivation, 1.9 million, since WW1 [66] . Remember that “genocide’ is defined by the UN Genocide Convention as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group” [2]. Indeed in a multi-author book on the Palestinian  Genocide nearly all the eminent and variously Jewish, non-Jewish, Arab, Western, Palestinian or Israeli contributors  referred to an ongoing “Palestinian Genocide” [67, 68].

  1.  Summary of the  horrendous dimensions of the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, the 50 year Occupation and egregious violation of Palestinian  human rights.

(1) The Palestinian  Genocide commenced in earnest with the famine deaths of 100,000 Palestinians after conquest of Palestine  in WW1 by the British and the Australian  and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) .

(2) The violent killing of Indigenous Palestinians commenced with the 1918 Surafend Massacre by ANZAC soldiers.

(3) Since WW1 there have been 2 million Palestinian deaths from Zionist violence (0.1 million) or Zionist-imposed deprivation (1.9 million ).

(4) There are 8 million Palestinian refugees and all of the 14 million Palestinians are excluded from all or part of Palestine.

(5) Of about 14 million Palestinians (half of them children), 7 million are forbidden to even step foot in their own country, 5 million are held hostage with zero human rights under Israeli  guns in the Gaza Concentration Camp (2.0 million) or in ever-dwindling West Bank Bantustan ghettoes  (3.0 million),  and 1.8 million live as Third Class citizens as Israeli Palestinians under Nazi-style Apartheid Israeli race laws.

(6) 90% of Palestine has now been ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinian  inhabitants in an ongoing war criminal ethnic cleansing that has been repeatedly condemned by the UN and most recently by UN Security Council Resolution 2334 that was unanimously supported (with a remarkable Obama US abstention but subsequent fervently  pro-Zionist Trump America and Turnbull Australia opposition).

(7) GDP per capita is US$2,900 for Occupied Palestinians as compared to US$37,000 for Apartheid Israel.

(8) Through  imposed deprivation, each year Apartheid Israel passively  murders about 2,700 under-5 year old Palestinian  infants and passively murders 4,200 Occupied Palestinians in general who die avoidably under Israeli Apartheid each year (this violates Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War that demand that an Occupier must provide life-sustaining food and medical services to the Occupied “to the fullest extent of the means available to it” ).

(9) Apartheid Israel violently kills an average of about 550 Occupied Palestinians each year.

(10) Occupied Palestinians are deprived of essentially all human rights and civil rights by Apartheid Israel (e.g. Apartheid Israeli  home invasions, beatings, executions, killings, exilings, mass imprisonments,  seizures of land and homes, and population transfers in violation of the UN Genocide Convention and the Geneva Convention).

(11) Nuclear terrorist, serial war criminal, genocidally racist, democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel determines that 74% of its now 50% Indigenous Palestinian subjects who are Occupied  Palestinians  cannot vote for the government  ruling them (i.e. egregious Apartheid).

(12) US-, UK-, Canada-, France- and Australia-backed Apartheid Israel in its genocidal treatment of the Palestinians ignores numerous UN General Assembly Resolutions and UN Security Council Resolutions, the  UN Genocide Convention, the Geneva Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Rights of the Child Convention, the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and many other aspects of International Law.

(13) Apartheid Israel has attacked 12 countries (including the US) and  occupied 5 with 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation in countries  neighbouring  and variously occupied by Apartheid Israel totalling 24 million.

(14) 5 million Occupied Palestinians  (half of them children) are routinely blackmailed through torture or denial of life-saving medical care to spy on fellow Palestinians for Apartheid Israel.

(15) 5 million Occupied Palestinians (half of them children) are excluded by check points from Jews-only areas and Jews-only roads.

(16) 50% of Israeli children are physically, psychologically or sexually (17%) abused each year but 100% of the 5 million  Occupied Palestinian children (2 million in Gaza Concentration Camp, 3 million in West bank ghettos)  are subject to traumatizing human rights abuse by the serial war criminal Israel Defence Force (IDF) (see [69]).

(17) There is a 10-year gap between Israeli and Palestinian life expectancy.

(18) Theocratic Apartheid Israeli laws prohibit all but religious marriages and marriage between Israelis and Occupied Palestinians is effectively excluded (they are forbidden from co-habiting).

(19) Decent, anti-racist Jewish Israelis as well as decent, anti-racist Jews world-wide, are grossly and falsely defamed by conflation of Apartheid Israel and its appalling crimes with all Jews as in the false appellation “Jewish State”.

(20) There is an ever-present threat expressed by Apartheid Israeli ultra-extremists of a neo-Nazi Final Solution in which the Indigenous Palestinians, who presently constitute 50% of Apartheid Israeli subjects,  will all be  expelled from Palestine  (see [69]).   

  1.  Global consequences of UK-, US-, Australia-, Canada- and EU-backed Apartheid Israel    and its ongoing Palestinian Genocide.

Nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel and its traitorous, mendacious and genocidally  racist Zionist agents have subverted and perverted Western and other countries, democracy, media and institutions  with appalling  mortality  consequences:

(a) 17 million avoidable deaths from deprivation each year globally and 1,500 million such deaths since 1950 (this including  600 million Muslims), this carnage being linked to continuing Zionist perversion of US aid and foreign policy [13].

(b) 32 million Muslim deaths from violence, 5 million, or from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the pro-Zionist US Alliance in the US War on Terror (US War on Muslims) since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity in which Apartheid Israel is very likely to have been complicit [70].

(c) millions of Indigenous deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in countries subject to Apartheid Israeli-backed, genocidal civil wars, notably Guatemala, Sri Lanka, Syria, Sudan  and South Sudan [13, 69].

(d) 27 million American preventable deaths since 9-11 (1.7 million annually) inescapably linked to Zionist-beholden US Governments committing to a $40 trillion long-term accrual cost of supporting Apartheid Israel, this including a $7 trillion long-term accrual cost for the  killing  of millions of Muslims abroad in the Zionist-promoted War on Terror instead of keeping millions of Americans alive at home. Australia has similarly committed to $11 billion per year long-term to the War on Terror ($176 billion since 9-11) with this fiscal perversion linked to 1.4 million preventable  Australian deaths since 9-11. Canada has similarly committed hugely to the War  on Terror with this inescapably linked to 0.1 million Canadian  preventable deaths annually or  1.6 million preventable deaths in Canada since 9-11. The UK has similarly committed hugely to the War  on Terror with this linked in terms of fiscal deprivation to 0.15 million UK  preventable deaths annually or  2.4 million preventable deaths in the UK since the 9-11 atrocity that killed 3,000 people [71-75].

(e) Zionists are notoriously involved in perversion of Western democracies, governments, media and other  institutions , most notably in pro-Apartheid US and pro-Apartheid Australia that are the 2 strongest supporters of Apartheid Israel and hence of the obscene ideology of Apartheid.  Thus in September 2015 the  US, Australia, Canada, Apartheid Israel  and  4 US lackey Pacific Island States voted “No” to  a UN General Assembly motion to permit  the flying of the  State of Palestine flag at the UN while  119 other nations decently voted “Yes”. Trump America and US lackey Trumpist Australia fervently oppose UN Security  Council Resolution 2334 that condemned  genocidal Israeli war crimes.  Racist Zionism is a huge threat to Australia in 50 areas but the threat is publicly ignored by the US lackey, pro-Apartheid, Zionist-beholden major parties (the Liberal Party and National Party Coalition Government and the Labor Party Opposition, aka the Lib-Labs) even after Australian PM Kevin Rudd was removed in a US approved, mining company-backed, and pro-Zionist-led coup [76-78].  Israeli war criminal Ariel Sharon (the “butcher of Beirut”) notoriously stated: “Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it” [79-81].

(f) The world is existentially  threatened by (a)  nuclear weapons, (b) poverty and (c) climate change  but (a)  Apartheid Israel reportedly has up to 400 nuclear warheads and indeed proposed to use them against Egypt in 1967,  (b) 17 million people die avoidably each year in the Developing  World minus China, this being linked to Zionist-backed US wars, notably the US War on Muslims, and the horrendous  perversion of the US aid budget for arms, notably for Apartheid Israel; and (c) an entrenched Western culture of lying  emplaced by a dominant, homicidally greedy, neoliberal,   Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI) One Percenter Establishment  has now made a catastrophic global  plus 2C temperature  rise unavoidable – it is predicted that 10 billion people will die this century in a near-terminal Climate Genocide if climate change from remorselessly increasing GHG pollution is not requisitely addressed [82, 83].

(g) As documented here,  the racist Zionists  have a deadly record of mendacity. Indeed e-LIARS is an appropriate anagram for ISRAEL. Zionist-promoted Mainstream media fake news through lying by omission and lying by commission threatens rational risk management that is crucial for societal safety and successively involves (a) accurate data, (b) scientific analysis, and (c) informed systemic change to minimize risk [84-86].

(h) As documented here,  racist Zionism is deadly anti-Arab anti-Semitism through the ongoing Palestinian Genocide and the ongoing Muslim Genocide and Muslim Holocaust. However racist Zionism is also  anti-Jewish anti-Semitic through  (a) falsely conflating  the activities of genocidally  racist  Apartheid Israel with all Jews,  and (b) by endlessly and falsely defaming the large body of anti-racist Jews who are utterly opposed to the human rights  abuses and genocidal crimes of Apartheid Israel. In Australia Zionists have effective carte blanche from both the Australian Labor Party and the Liberal Party-National Party Coalition and have subverted and perverted Australian institutions  and public life.  Australian Mainstream media, politician and academic presstitutes  ignore the reality that numerous anti-racist Jews (as well as anti-racist non-Jews) staunchly oppose the racist evils of Israeli Apartheid  and the ongoing Palestinian Genocide [87-90]. Australia’s most notorious white collar criminal , Jewish Zionist Richard Pratt,  was fined $36 million for criminal price-fixing and contributed to the erection of a monument in modern Beersheba in Apartheid Israel to the Australian Light Horse charge (for his crimes Richard Pratt  had to return his Order of Australia, and was subsequently prosecuted for perjury  but the charges were withdrawn days before his death and a “Who’s Who” of Australia business and politics attended his funeral after he died leaving a politically-significant fortune of A$5.5 billion) [91, 92].

Concluding comments

As Humanity  marks the 100th anniversary of the charge of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba, the Balfour Declaration and the start of the ongoing Palestinian Genocide it must resolve to rigorously and comprehensively  apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions  (BDS) against Apartheid Israel and all those people,  politicians, parties, companies, corporations and countries who support the genocidal Zionist enterprise. The racist Zionists  and all their pro-Apartheid supporters must be sidelined from public life worldwide as have been like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders and Ku Klux Klan. The century-long, neo-Nazi and  genocidal evil of Apartheid Israel and its ongoing Palestinian Genocide must be brought to an end immediately.  The Zionist ethnic cleansing of 90% of Palestine means that the Two-State Solution is dead. The World must demand an end to race-based Apartheid Israel after the example of post-Apartheid South Africa and its replacement by a Unitary State in Palestine with return of all refugees, zero tolerance for racism, equal rights for all, all human rights for all, one-person-one-vote, justice, goodwill, reconciliation, airport-level security, nuclear weapons removal, internationally-guaranteed national security initially based on the present armed forces, and untrammelled access for all citizens to all of the Holy Land.

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/radionational/programs/ockhamsrazor/australian-complicity-in-iraq-mass-mortality/3369002#transcript) 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.open.edu/openlearn/history-the-arts/history/social-economic-history/listen-the-bengal-famine;  Gideon Polya: https://sites.google.com/site/drgideonpolya/home; Gideon Polya Writing: https://sites.google.com/site/gideonpolyawriting/ ; Gideon Polya, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gideon_Polya ) .
