The World had Many HOLOCAUSTS – new Article by W. Hanna

 Israel Ramps-Up Its Modus Operandi
Of Blackmail, Bribery, And Bullying 

“We saw today examples hanging before us of European
prejudice . . . In Geneva, they are calling for an investigation against Israel
for war crimes, while in Luxembourg the European court removed Hamas from the
terrorist list. It looks like there are too many people in Europe, on the
ground where six million Jews were slaughtered, who haven’t learned a thing.
The friendship we see from the United States stands in complete contrast to what
we are seeing regretfully in Europe.” 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a
hysterical diatribe yet again invoking the Holocaust at the opening of his
meeting with U.S. Senator-Elect Joni Ernst of Iowa.
Benjamin Netanyahu has followed
up his recent condemnatory rants — hallmarked Israeli tantrum reactions to some
European national parliaments and the EU parliament voting for recognition of a
Palestinian state — with another hysterical attack that was both reminiscent of
one of Hitler’s harangues and in keeping with the sentiments of a people
insisting that they are special and superior to all others by virtue of having
been chosen by God Himself. While this Holocaust “blame and blackmail”
technique has to date served the cause of Zionism with distinction, it is
becoming somewhat hackneyed and its continued use constitutes a longterm
disservice to Israel.
While all people with a
scintilla of humanity in them will readily acknowledge that the death of an
estimated six million Jews was an unforgivable atrocity on a grand scale, those
same people will resent being blackmailed into silence while Israel with barbaric
impunity ethnically cleanses the Palestinians so as to continue stealing their
land. The constant invocation of the Holocaust as an excuse, justification, and
smokescreen for Israel’s illegal and savage occupation of Palestinian
Territories carries with it the amoral implication that Jewish suffering takes
precedence over the suffering of other ethnic groups and precludes
accountability by Israel for its own crimes against humanity.
Such an
implication ignores the reality that during World War II, the bloodiest war in
the History of Humanity with an estimated 60 million non-Jews killed (over 10
million deaths per year), child mortality from poverty,
hunger, easily preventable diseases and illnesses was
more than 20
million each year. Even in1960 alone, the number of child deaths (18,900,000) exceeded the Jewish Holocaust death
toll by more than three times. But because there is no “child mortality
industry” similar to the “Holocaust industry,” awareness of and concern for the
plight of children receives relatively little if any attention even though according to Humanium, “almost 9 million of under-5
children die each year, which means that a child dies every 4 seconds (22,000
per day) in the world.”
Furthermore there are no
constant mainstream media reminders of the victims of the Armenian Holocaust
with 300,000 massacred (1894-1896), 1,500,000 massacred or forcibly deported
(1915-1916), 30,000 massacred or burnt in Smyrna (1922); no reminders of the 15
million Christian Russian Kulak farmers who were exterminated during the Soviet
Holocaust (1924-1930); no reminders of seven million Ukrainian farmers who were
starved to death (1930-1933); no reminders of the 12 million Russian political
prisoners who perished between 1919 and 1949; no reminders of of the 1948 Deir Yassin massacre which marked the
beginning of the depopulation of over 400 Palestinian towns and villages
resulting in the exodus of 750,000 Arabs which marked the beginning of the
Palestinian Nakba, or catastrophe, and the creation of a Palestinian diaspora
in refugee camps and in neighbouring Arab countries;
no reminders
of the estimated 40-60 million Chinese victims of Mao Zedong’s regime; no
reminders of the estimated two million victims of the Vietnam War including
massacres such as My Lai by U.S Forces and the U.S. herbicidal warfare
program’s use of Agent Orange which killed or maimed some four hundred thousand
and to this day is still afflicting three million as a result birth defects; no
reminders of the two and a half million Cambodians who were slaughtered during
the Pol Pot Communist Holocaust in 1975; no reminders of the millions of
victims in the still ongoing Iraq War which was deceitfully launched against
Iraq’s nonexistent weapons of mass destruction; no reminders of the tens of thousands
of South Americans who were victims of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
subversion operations to overthrow left-wing governments as happened to
Salvador Allende’s government (November 1970 to September 1973); and finally,
no reminders that all of the aforementioned — despite not having been chosen by
God Himself — were nonetheless human beings with inalienable human rights.
The dawning of this reality on
many people — coupled with their becoming tired of being blackmailed and bullied
into unconscionable silence and acceptance of Israel’s cavalier disregard for
international law — has resulted in a spate of some long overdue decisions that
recognise the historical existence of a Palestinian people deserving of justice
and human rights within a state of their own. Such decisions have recently
included recognition of a Palestinian state (despite furious Israeli threats)
in the Swedish, British, Spanish, Irish, French (in both the lower and upper
houses of parliament), and Portuguese parliaments; the provision of observer
status at the International Criminal Court (ICC); a vote of recognition by the
European parliament; and the Geneva Conventions invocation of Palestinian
rights by 126 countries urging Israel to halt settlement construction in West
Bank and East Jerusalem. The Geneva Conventions which govern the rules of war
and military occupation was not on this occasion attended by Australia, Canada,
and the U.S. — countries whose racist treatment of indigenous peoples has to
date been less than exemplary.
This apparent defiance in the
face of Israeli opposition is the consequence of growing frustration with Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ploy of yet again derailing the “peace process”
combined with a a more sympathetic public opinion swing towards the
Palestinians. Israel — a nation not accustomed to having its diktats disobeyed
by the West — has accordingly reacted with the kind of scorn and contempt that
brings the sanity of its leaders into question. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman,
for example, said that “We’ve already seen this at the end of the 1930s and at
the beginning of the 1940s when Europe knew what was happening in the
concentration camps and didn’t act.” He did, however, conveniently forget to
mention that while Europe was at the time failing to act, the Zionist
leadership was actively courting and offering to fight with the Nazis in return
for being given Palestine after Germany won the war.
