Pro-war, pro-Zionist, racist countries boycott UN Racism Conference; Ahmadinejad’s comments CORRECT
by : Dr Gideon Polya
Tuesday April 21, 2009 - 04:24
Leading racist and genocidal countries in the world have boycotted the UN Racism Conference in Geneva, Switzerland (see “Pro-war, pro-racism racist countries backing Zionist racism boycott UN racism conference” “: http://gpolya.newsvine.com/_news/20... and “[pro-war, pro-Zionism, pro-racism, pro-genocide] Western boycott threatens UN racism conference” : http://www.theglobeandmail.com/serv... ).
All of the racist boycotting countries - the US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Holland, Apartheid Israel, Italy and Germany - have been variously involved in the ultimate in racism, namely Genocide, in the Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide and/or the Afghan Genocide (post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths 0.3 million, 2.3 million and 3-7 million, respectively) .
The BBC has broadcast details of the walkout from the UN Racism Conference by racist Western diplomats (see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8... ) and world reactions to the speech (see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8... ) .
However the BBC has also reported key statements from Iran President Ahmadinejad’s speech, prefaced by the comment “ “Diplomats have walked out of a UN conference on racism during a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad” (“In quotes: Ahmadinejad’s speech”, BBC News, 20 April 2009 : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8... ). I have numbered them 1-7 for your convenience; a further President Ahmadinjad quote (#8) is from the BBC report on the walkout. I have made some documented comments in square brackets after each quote.
In short, as an anti-racist, humanitarian, agnostic scientist I must state that Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s comments were correct and unexceptional.
1. “The victorious powers [of the world wars] call themselves the conquerors of the world, while ignoring or down-treading the rights of other nations by the imposition of oppressive laws and international arrangements.“
[ Comment. Avoidable mortality (avoidable deaths, excess deaths, deaths that should not have happened) in the period 1950-2005 and with the First World in charge of the World totals 1.3 billion (the World), 1.2 billion (the non-European World), and 0.6 billion (the Muslim World) – a Muslim Holocaust 100 times greater than the World War 2 (WW2) Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million killed, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) that was PART of the (pro-Zionist Mainstream-ignored) WW2 Western Theatre holocaust as a whole (30 million Slav, Jewish and Roma killed) and the (pro-Zionist Mainstream-ignored) Eastern Theatre WW2 holocaust involving 35 million Chinese dead and wounded casualties under Japanese–imposed war 1937-1945 i.e. realistically about 35 million excess deaths from killing and deprivation (see Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Xinhua News Agency December 13, 2005: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/englis... ) and the deliberate starving to death of 6-7 million Indians in the man-made, British-imposed Bengal Famine (see Bengal Famine”, BBC Radio 4, January 2008: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot... ). For detailed tabulation and documentation see my book ““Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007 (see: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ and http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya )
2. “Following World War Two, they resorted to making an entire nation homeless on the pretext of Jewish suffering. They sent migrants from Europe, the United States and other parts of the world in order to establish a totally racist government in the occupied Palestine. In compensation for the dire consequences of racism in Europe, they helped bring to power the most cruel and repressive, racist regime in Palestine.”
[Comment. In about 1880, when the racist colonial enterprise racist Zionism was getting underway, the population of Ottoman Empire-ruled Palestine was about 0.5 million Indigenous Arab Palestinians with about 25,000 Jews (half of them immigrants); by 1922 , 5 years after the British Balfour Declaration was issued in an attempt to get Zionist support for continued Russian involvement in WW1 (see Sir Martin Gilbert, “First World War 1”, p373) there were 752,000 people in the Palestine Mandate of whom 84,000 (11%) were Jews; by 1945, 1 year after pro-Zionist and racist mass murderer Churchill got the UK War Cabinet to Partition Palestine (see “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History”, G.M. Polya, 2007: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ), there were 1.8 million people in Palestine, of whom 0.6 million (33%) were Jews; by 1947 there was a population of 1.5 million of whom 0.65 million were Jews (see “Population of Palestine prior to 1948”: http://www.mideastweb.org/palpop.htm ). Currently there are over 7 million Palestinian refugees, 5 million living in refugee camps. There are 5.5 million Jewish Israelis (with full rights and ruling all of the Holy Land plus stolen adjoining territories), 1.5 million Arab Israelis (second class citizens living under Apartheid-style laws in a race-based colonizer state; and 4 million Occupied Palestinians (50% children and 75% women and children) without any human rights – even the right to life - and abusively imprisoned in the Gaza Concentration camp (1.5 million) of the tiny, residual West Bank Bantustans. For a Map and a description by outstanding Jewish American writer Stephen Lendman see: “Israel’s slow-motion genocide in Occupied Palestine”: http://www.baltimorechronicle.com/2... ]
3. “It is all the more regrettable that a number of Western governments and the United States have committed themselves to defending those racist perpetrators of genocide, whilst the awakened consciences and free-minded people of the world condemn aggression, brutality and the bombardment of civilians of Gaza.”
[Comment. In the Occupied Palestinian Territory post-invasion non-violent deaths total 0.3 million; [post-invasion Occupied Palestinian violent deaths total about 10,000; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million; 5 million refugees in refugee camps; over 7 million refugees; 4 million Occupied Palestinians (50% children 75% woman and children) abusively imprisoned without charge of trial in the Gaza Concentration Camp (1.5 million) and the West Bank Bantustans (2.5 million), 85% of Christian Palestinians have fled the Occupied Palestinian Territory (see “Apartheid Israel’s 60 years of war, theft and Palestinian genocide“: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/223... ).
What has happened in Palestine has been a Palestinian Holocaust and a Palestinian Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention (see: http://www.edwebproject.org/sidesho... ): “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: a) Killing members of the group; b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”
As for the latest Apartheid Israeli Gaza Massacre, the statistics say it all: about 1,350 Palestinians killed (60% children) and 5,450 Palestinians severely wounded (40% children) in reprisals for zero (0) Israeli deaths from Gaza rockets in the preceding year (see “Apartheid Israel Gaza Massacre. “The Lancet” reveals horrendous Israeli war crimes” : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/285... ).
Another way of looking at the racist Israeli carnage in what the Catholic Church has described as the Gaza Concentration Camp (see: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/st... ) is through the objective parameter of “annual homicide rate”. The ostensible excuse for Apartheid Israel’s current Gaza Massacre is “Gaza rocket terror”. However “terror” is directly proportional to “proportion of people killed” and the ACTUAL number of Israelis killed by Gaza rockets and mortars since the start of the Second Intifada 8.25 years ago is twenty eight (28), this corresponding to a 21st century “annual homicide rate” in units of persons killed per million per year of 0.5 (Israelis killed by Gaza missiles) – as compared to 0.5 (Western rapist husbands killed by raped wives), 1.0 (Western violent husbands killed by battered wives), 15 (Israelis by Israelis), 56 (Americans), 100 (Americans by guns), 164 (Palestinians killed violently by Israelis), 200 (African-Americans), 473 (citizens of Detroit, Michigan, USA) and 902 per million per year (annual Palestinian non-violent deaths through war criminal, Geneva Convention-violating Israeli-imposed deprivation) (see “Palestinian-Israel death ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza war crimes”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/277... ) ].
4. “[Conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan were] a clear example of egocentrism, racism, discrimination or infringement upon the dignity and independence of nations.‘’
[Comment. While no Iraqis or Afghan were involved in the 9-11 atrocity (according to the lying Bush “official version” of 9-11 (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organi... ) - and indeed top scientific evidence for unignited nano-thermite high explosive in the World Trade Center dust now points clearly to US (and very likely US surrogate i.e. Israeli) involvement in the 9-11 atrocity (see “Is US responsible for 9-11 atrocity? Scientists find nano-thermite in WTC dust” “: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/299... ) – the US and its allies invaded, devastated and continue to occupy Iraq and Afghanistan.
In the Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan post-invasion non-violent excess deaths now total 1.0 million and 3.2 million, respectively; post-invasion violent deaths total 1.3 million and 2-4 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.6 million and 2.3 million, respectively; and refugees total 5-6 million and 3-4 million, respectively – an Iraqi Holocaust and an Afghan Holocaust and an Iraqi Genocide and an Afghan Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention: http://www.edwebproject.org/sidesho... ) ].
5. “Today, the human community is facing a kind of racism which has tarnished the image of humanity. In the beginning of the third millennium, the word Zionism personifies racism, that falsely resorts to religion and abuses religious sentiments to hide hatred.”
[Comment. Racist Zionism grew out of racist European colonialism at its genocidal peak in the 19th century (see Sven Lindqvist’s exposure of colonial racism: “Exterminate All the Brutes”). Zionism was and is explicitly racist, involving (in theory and horrendous practice) the race-based invasion, occupation, disempowering, dispossession and genocide of the Indigenous people of Palestine – even the very name “Palestine” that, with variants, dates back over 2,500 years has been erased.
To get an unbiased view of the pure evil of US-, UK-, EU and Australia-backed racist Zionism it is safest to turn to anti-racist, humanitarian Jews whose views are exampled below.
Professor Jared Diamond (perhaps the most widely read Jewish American scholar today) in his best-selling book “Collapse” (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition, 2005) in which he enunciates the "moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people" – an injunction grossly violated by racist Zionist (RZ)-run Apartheid Israel and its racist US, UK, Australian,New Zealand, Italy, Holland, Germany backers.
Professor Bertell Ollman (New York University: http://www.nyu.edu/projects/ollman/... ): “Furthermore, if Zionism is indeed a particularly virulent form of nationalism and, increasingly, of racism and if Israel is acting toward its captive minority in ways that resemble more and more how the Nazis treated their Jews, then we must also say so. For obvious reasons, the Zionists are very sensitive about being compared to the Nazis (not so sensitive that it has restrained them in their actions but enough to bellow "unfair" and to charge "anti-Semitism" when it happens). Yet, the facts on the ground, when not obscured by one or another Zionist rationalization, show that the Zionists are the worst anti-Semites in the world today, oppressing a Semitic people as no nation has done since the Nazis. No, the Zionists are not yet quite as bad as the Nazis, not yet, but isn’t the world witnessing a creeping ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians at this very moment?“
Important Orthodox Jewish organization Neturei Karta (Jews united against Zionism); see: http://www.nkusa.org/activities/Sta... ): “The crux of the matter is that beyond the immorality of the Zionist treatment of the Palestinians is the ultimate fact — the ideology of Zionism and ensuing establishment of the Zionist state conflicts with the basic teachings of Judaism. Zionism is the transformation from Judaism, a G-dliness and spirituality, into a G-dlessness, materialism with nationalistic aspirations. Theodor Herzl and his cohorts, the fathers of this relatively new ideology of Zionism (approximately 100 years), have taken the Almighty out of the equation. The ultimate establishment of the Zionist State, the fulfilment of the Zionist ideology, takes this blasphemy a step further. The Jewish people were sent into exile by Divine decree. They where then expressly commanded by the Almighty, not to attempt to leave their exilic existence through any human intervention. They were expressly forbidden to create their own state, such as the Zionist state of "Israel". (Talmud, Tractate Kesuboth, p.111). The Jewish people are forbidden to oppress another people. The creation of the State of "Israel" came about through, the theft from, subjugation and oppression of, the Palestinian people. Torah Jewry, therefore, condemns the horrifying suffering inflicted upon both the Palestinian and Lebanese people. Because of all of the above, all attempts to achieve peace and stability for "Israel" are destined to fail. The Creator cannot be defied with impunity. The Rabbis stated, that the State of "Israel" will result in unending pain, suffering and bloodshed. May the Almighty protect His creations. The State of "Israel" does not speak in the name of Jews, they have stolen the name "Israel" from the Jewish people. Jews are commanded to be loyal citizens in every country in which they reside. Zionism and the State of "Israel", is the main cause of the exacerbation of anti Semitism universally. The government of the illegitimate State of "Israel", continually attempts to uproot the Torah and its statutes. They persistently oppress the Torah true Jews who reside in its borders”.
Ronnie Kasrils (Jewish hero in the fight against Apartheid and Government Minister for Intelligence, South Africa) (see: http://www.mg.co.za/article/2007-05... ) stated : “Israel 2007: worse than apartheid”and recently quoted Dutch neo-Nazi father of Apartheid Dr Verwoerd as saying "Israel is an Apartheid state" (see “Who Said Nearly 50 Years Ago that Israel was an Apartheid State? [answer: Dutch neo-Nazi Apartheid founder Dr Verwoerd]: http://www.mathaba.net/0_index.shtm... ).
6. “Efforts must be made to put an end to the abuse by Zionists and their supporters of political and international means... Governments must be encouraged and supported in the fight aimed at eradicating this barbaric racism and moving towards reforming the current international mechanisms.”
[Comment. Race-based Apartheid Israel is in gross violation of the UN Charter, the Rights of the Child Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and numerous UN Resolutions, notably UN Security Council resolution 252 (1968) that states that the State of Israel cannot seize land and property thorough conquest and deplored the failure of Israel to comply with the General Assembly resolutions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United... .]
7. “You are all aware of the conspiracy of some powers and Zionist circles against the goals and objectives of this conference... It should be recognised that boycotting such a session is a true indication of supporting the blatant example of racism.
[Comment. Apartheid Israel is the only race-based Apartheid State in the world today with Nazi-style , race-based Apartheid laws (e.g. laws preventing Israelis married to Occupied Palestinians cohabiting in the State of Israel; some major Arab Israelis political parties banned; Arab Israelis excluded from particular areas of employment; Arab Israelis required to carry Nazi-style race ID cards at all times etc).
It is notable that the boycotting countries have appalling records of involvement in wars, invasion, occupations and genocide in the post-war era, Thus “1950-2005 avoidable deaths” in countries for which these countries have been major occupiers in the post-war era are as follows (for details see my book “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/; see also ”Global avoidable mortality”: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/): Australia (2.1 million), Israel (23.9 million). Netherlands (71.6 million), New Zealand (0.2 million), the United States (82.2 million); the other boycotting countries Canada, Italy and Germany have supplied troops for the Afghan Genocide, the Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide, respectively.
8. [US-UK post-war Jewish colonization] "in order to establish a racist government in the occupied Palestine…And in fact, in compensation for the dire consequences of racism in Europe, they helped bring to power the most cruel and repressive racist regime in Palestine"
[Comment. Racist Zionist and Western media and politicians falsely defame President Ahmadinejad as wanting to destroy Israel (he merely wants what all decent , anti-racist humanitarians want around the world : an end to Apartheid Israel rule over the Holy Land just as they wanted an end to neo-Nazi rule over Apartheid South Africa ) and as a “holocaust denier”
One must fully agree with President Ahmadinejad’s temperate and responsible comments listed above.
It is a great shame and disgrace that the very first African-American President of the United States - whose own father was active in the fight against racist British imperialism, colonialism and the mass murder of the British-imposed Kenyan Holocaust (1.1 million excess deaths; see: “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/) - should boycott the UN Racism Conference out of support for racist Zionist (RZ)-run Apartheid Israel.
The obscene anti-African, anti-Asian, anti-Chinese, anti-Indian, racist Apartheid regime in South Africa commenced in real earnest 1948, at the same time as the founding of racist Apartheid Israel by the UK and US. Apartheid South Africa was subsequently backed by the US, UK, racist White Australia and Apartheid Israel (the latter to the extent of helping Apartheid South Africa to get "white" nuclear bombs that were relinquished in 1993).
Just as Sanctions and Boycotts eventually got rid of the Apartheid regime in South Africa (no, not got rid of South Africa but got rid of the racist Apartheid regime of South Africa - just as President Ahmadinejad wants removal of the racist Apartheid regime of Apartheid Israel, not the Israeli people) so Sanctions and Boycotts against Apartheid Israel and its racist backers are urgently needed to remove the racist obscenity of racist Apartheid from the Holy Land.
