BODY COUNT - comparing Jewish, Indian, Bengali, Palestinian, Iraqi & Afghan HOLOCAUSTS

This year South Asia (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Maldives) celebrates 60 years of Independence from racist, colonialist, imperialist Britain. 2 centuries of violent, racist British rule was associated with horrendous avoidable mortality (excess deaths, deaths that would not have happened under benign and competent rule) totalling 1.5 BILLION (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/5668/26/ ; also see the recent book “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ). Thus the annual death rate in famine labour camps in India in 1875 was over 90%; the “annual death rate” in British India in 1947 was a genocidal 3.5% (3.5 deaths per 100 Indians each year) as compared to 0.85% today.
The British Political Establishment was well aware of what it was doing and successfully hid much of this 2 century atrocity from the British people. Thus everyone in Britain knows about the Jewish Holocaust (6 million victims) but very few (perhaps only as few as only 1% ) are aware of the man-made Bengal Famine (Indian Holocaust, Bengali Holocaust) that occurred at the same time as the Jewish Holocaust but which has been “rubbed out” of British history (white-washed, deleted) by several generations of lying, racist British historians, politicians and journalists.
The Bengal Famine took 4 million lives (Satyajit Ray’s movie “Distant Thunder” suggests 5 million) and was associated with horrendous military and civilian sexual abuse of starving Women and Girls. According to Colin Mason’s “A Short History of Asia” (Macmillan, London, 2000) this Bengali Holocaust may have been due to a deliberate scorched earth policy by the British to forestall Japanese invasion of India by presenting them with a province of 60 million starving Bengalis (see also the book ”Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History”: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ).
We should all be highly concerned about past and CONTINUING mass murder of Asians through British, American and Racist Zionist (Apartheid Israeli) ”democratic imperialism (democratic tyranny, democratic Nazism). Thus the excess deaths associated with post-1950 US Asian wars now total 19 million – almost as many people as died from the Nazi invasion of Russia in WW2.
Let’s consider just ONE part of this post-war racist American carnage inflicted on Asian Women and Children – what outstanding Jewish American law academic Professor Richard Falk has recently called the Palestinian Holocaust: http://www.zmag.org/content/showart... .
Consider the following comparison between the on-going Palestinian Genocide (Palestinian Holocaust) TO DATE and (B) that part of the Jewish Holocaust in Hungary in World War 2 (noting that Racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel is but ONE part of the "democratic Nazi"-run US Empire and that the Jewish Holocaust in Hungary was but ONE part of the Jewish Holocaust in Nazi-occupied Europe.).
(A) Post-invasion (i.e. post-1967) indigenous Occupied Palestinian excess deaths (avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) total 0.3 million (from UN Population Division data and consonant with independently estimated post-invasion under-5 infant deaths of 0.2 million). There are some 7 million Palestinian refugees (4.2 million registered with the UN) and the kidnapped, imprisoned and grossly abused Occupied Palestinian population now totals 3.8 million (half Children and three quarters Women and Children)(for details see the following articles on the outstanding, ethical Canada-based and South Asian-run MWC News: "40 years of Occupation of Palestine & Cruelty": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/137... and “Palestine Genocide”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/134... ; for related quantitative humanitarian articles see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/137... ).
(B) Jewish deaths in Nazi German-occupied Hungary in 1944/45 (0.2 million deaths out of a Jewish population of 0.7 million; mostly active murder) (see: Gilbert, M. (1969), Jewish History Atlas, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London and Gilbert, M. (1982), Atlas of the Holocaust , Michael Joseph, London). Hundreds of thousands of the survivors fled in 1945 with more fleeing in 1956.
Anyone denying the horrendous realities of the Jewish Holocaust (B) deservedly faces 10 years in prison in Austria and lengthy imprisonment in other Western European countries – yet lying, racist, holocaust-ignoring, Racist Zionist (RZ)- and Racist Bush-ite (RB)-beholden Western Mainstream Media and politicians of the proto-Nazi US Coalition countries IGNORE (A), the ongoing Palestinian Holocaust AND the more general mass murder of Asians in the US Empire: the post-invasion excess deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories now (March 2007 figures) total 1.0 million and 2.4 million, respectively (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/130... ).
The Nazis managed to murder a total of 1.5 million Jewish Children in WW2 in the whole of Nazi-occupied Europe. Consult UNICEF (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry... ) and you will quickly discover the horrendous circumstances of Occupied Palestinian Children under highly abusive, war criminal Apartheid Israeli Occupation - ON TOP of the 0.2 million post-invasion Palestinian under-5 infant deaths (75% avoidable), the Racist Zionists are passively murdering 2,400 under-5 year old Occupied Palestinians EVERY YEAR.
Comprehensive international sanctions and boycotts liberated Africans, Indians and other non-Europeans from the yoke of racist South African Apartheid – similar measures are urgently needed to stop the racist carnage in Asia, from Palestine to Afghanistan by American democratic imperialism (democratic tyranny, democratic Nazism).
