Australian ABC ignores holocaust and genocide atrocities.
The taxpayer-funded Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is the Australian equivalent of the taxpayer-funded British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The ABC is the most respected of all the Mainstream media in Australia but, as detailed below, stands accused of sustained, egregious holocaust–ignoring and genocide-ignoring.
Of course it must be stated at the outset that holocaust-ignoring and genocide-ignoring are far, far worse than holocaust denial or genocide denial because “denial” at least admits the possibility of sensible debate, something which is completely excluded by “ignoring”.
Holocaust is the destruction of a large number of people. The term was first applied to a WW2 atrocity by Jog in 1944 (Jog, N.G. (1944), Churchill’s Blind-Spot: India (New Book Company, Bombay)) in relation to the “forgotten” man-made Bengal Famine (6-7 million Indians - many of them Muslims in a "forgotten" WW2 Muslim Holocaust - deliberately starved to death by the British, 1943-1945). It was subsequently applied to the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million killed, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) which was part of a horrendous WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies killed in the Nazi German Lebensraum genocide). We must surely then talk of the WW2 Bengali Holocaust.
Further, it is estimated that 1.8 billion Indians perished in the 2 century carnage of British India (see “Polya, Gideon. Indian Holocaust, Bengali Holocaust, Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust, US Empire Genocide, Climate Holocaust & Muslim Holocaust”: http://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/polya-gideon ).
Scores of millions died in a succession of appalling famines under the merciless British who maintained power by keeping several hundred million Indians on the edge of starvation (see Gideon Polya, “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability”, G.M. Polya, Melbourne (1998, 2008), “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History”, 2008: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/2008/09/jane-austen-and-black-hole-of-british.html .) .
10 million Indians were murdered in the decade after the 1857 Indian rebellion (called the Indian Mutiny by the British) (see “War of Civilizations: India AD 1857”, “Volume I -The Road to Delhi” and “Volume II- The Long Revolution” by Amaresh Misra: http://warofcivilisations.blogspot.com/ ) .
compelled to describe this 2 century catastrophe as an Indian Holocaust and an
Indian Genocide (with genocide as legally defined below),However the Indian Holocaust and Indian Genocide were ignored by the lavish 6-part BBC series "The Story of India" broadcast recently by the ABC.
Unfortunately the racist Zionists (RZs) (who were complicit in the
Jewish Holocaust by collaboration with the Nazis, opposing placement of Jewish
refugees anywhere but Palestine and persuading Churchill to oppose the Brand
scheme to save 0.7 million Hungarian Jews) have appropriated the term Holocaust
to mean only the WW2 Jewish Holocaust to the exclusion of all other holocausts, notably the WW2 European Holocaust involving the deaths of 30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies
(see the testimony of outstanding humanitarian Jews Joel Brand:
Genocide is very precisely defined in International Law as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group” as set out by Article 2 of the 1948 UN Genocide Convention: “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.”
Key to this internationally agreed, legal definition of genocide is “intent”. Thus the “intent’ of a serial killer is not abolished by his refusal to confess or otherwise explicitly declare “intent” – it can be clearly established simply by the evidence of sustained, remorseless actions leading to serial deaths. Likewise, for example, the sustained, remorseless actions (and inactions) of the British caused the deaths of 6-7 million Indians in 1943-1945 Bengali Holocaust (see the transcript of the 2008 BBC broadcast involving myself, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and other scholars: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot/bengalfamine_programme.html ) ; the sustained British deprivation of its Indian subjects in the 2 century British Indian Holocaust (1.5 BILLION excess deaths, or about 1.8 BILLION including the Native States, and about 20% of them Muslims) (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/26713/42/ and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/31306/42/ ).
Here is the expert advice of Denis Halliday (who resigned after 34 years with the UN, including being UN assistant secretary-general, over the Sanctions imposed on Iraq, characterizing them as “genocide”) on genocidal “intent to kill” in answering the question “Who, in your view, is primarily responsible for the deaths of those 500,000 children under five [under Sanctions]?” (2000): “All the members of the Permanent Security Council, when they passed 1284, reconfirmed that economic sanctions had to be sustained, knowing the consequences. That constitutes ‘intent to kill’, because we know that sanctions are killing several thousand per month. Now, of the five permanent members, three abstained; but an abstention is no better than a vote for, in a sense. Britain and America of course voted for this continuation. The rest of them don’t count because they’re lackeys, or they’re paid off. The only country that stood up was Malaysia, and they also abstained. But you know, by abstaining instead of using your veto, when you are a permanent member you're guilty because you’re continuing something that has this deadly impact. However, I would normally point the finger at London and Washington, because they are the most active in sustaining sanctions: they are the ones who will not compromise" (see: Denis Halliday, interviewed by David Edwards, “Half a million children under five are dead in Iraq – who is responsible. An interview with Denis Halliday - Former Assistant Secretary-General of The United Nations”, Media Lens, May 2000: http://www.medialens.org/articles/the_articles/articles_2001/iraqdh.htm ).
Muslims have been subject to horrendous mass murder events, such as the mass murder of the people of Jerusalem by the Crusaders on 15 July 1099 - more than 70,000 dead bodies of Muslim children and women were found in the Mosque of Omar in Jerusalem alone. In the13th century the Mongols under Genghis Khan killed millions in Iraq and adjoining. regions. In 1492 millions of Muslims (and Jews) were killed or expelled from Spain, putting an end to the brilliant civilization of Moorish Spain. Millions of Muslims were killed in subsequent centuries due to expansion of the Russian Empire in Asia, the British Empire in Asia and Africa, the French Empire in Asia and Africa, the Spanish Empire in Asia and Africa, the Portuguese Empire in Africa and Asia and the Dutch Empire in South East Asia (principally in what is now Indonesia)..
In the interests of Humanity I have created a series of detailed, documented websites that set out documented, authoritative data and opinions about CURRENT, ongoing holocausts and genocides of which all but the Australian Aboriginal Genocide involve active or passive mass murder of Muslims and which are are overwhelmingly ignored by academics, journalists, politicians and media in the lying, holocaust complicit, holocaust ignoring, genocide complicit, genocide ignoring, Zionist-beholden, neocon-beholden, US imperialism-beholden Western Murdochracies.

Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust: the above atrocities are dwarfed by the 1950-2005 excess deaths in the mostly post-colonial Muslim World that totalled 0.6 billion (see my book "Body Count. Global voidable mortality since 1950" , G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007, and "Global avoidable mortality": http://globalavoidablemortality.blogspot.com/ ).
Climate Holocaust, Climate Genocide (man-made global warming increasingly impacts the current 22 million annual avoidable deaths from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease; estimates from top UK climate scientists Dr James Lovelock and Professor Kevin Anderson point to 10 billion avoidable deaths this century due to unaddressed global warming, this including 6 billion infants, 3 billion Muslims in a near-terminal, 21st century Muslim Holocaust , 2 billion Indians, 1.3 billion non-Arab Africans, 0.5 billion Bengalis, 0.3 billion Pakistanis and 0.3 billion Bangladeshis): http://sites.google.com/site/climategenocide/ .
Biofuel Holocaust, Biofuel Genocide is an ongoing scenario due to legislatively–mandated food for fuel obscenity in the UK, EU and US (see “Biofuel Genocide”: http://sites.google.com/site/biofuelgenocide/ .
Aboriginal Holocaust, Aboriginal Genocide (the Australian Indigenous population dropped from circa 1 million to 0.1 million in the first century post-invasion; currently 9,000 Aborigines die avoidably each year, mostly from horrendous neglect, out of an Indigenous population of 0.5 million; Apartheid Australia is involved in all the above ongoing holocausts and genocides, has an appalling secret genocide history: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/22128/42/ , is the world’s worst annual per capita greenhouse gas polluter, and helped the US sabotage the vital Copenhagen Climate Conference): http://sites.google.com/site/aboriginalgenocide/ .
Indigenous Holocaust, Indigenous Genocide is an ongoing reality for Indigenous People around the world, notably in Australia, Colombia, the US occupied Occupied Territories (see above) and Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon.
I have used the above compilations to generate an updated 2010 formal complaint to the International Criminal Court (see Dr Gideon Polya, Formal complaint to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court re Australian Government involvement in Aboriginal Genocide, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide and Climate Genocide, March 2008: http://climateemergency.blogspot.com/2008_02_01_archive.html ).
When one turns to the ABC Search Engine that permits one to search “the entire ABC” (see: http://search.abc.net.au/search/search.cgi?query=%22bengali+holocaust%22&sort=&collection=abcall&form=simple ) one finds an extraordinary paucity of results for the various holocaust and genocide terms noted above, Thus a search of “the entire ABC” for the phrase “Bengali Holocaust” yields ZERO (0) results whereas a search for the phrase “Bengali Holocaust” on Google yields 6,930 results ( 9 April 2010).
A comparison of ABC / Google Search results is given below for searches for the various holocaust and genocide phrases indicated (by way of example, “Bengali Holocaust” yields 0 / 6,930). Note that not all search results are necessarily directly related to the particular genocide or holocaust event of interest (thus a sentence ending in “… Bengali.” followed by a sentence commencing with “Holocaust …” would yield a false positive) and do not necessarily yield concrete information about the holocaust or genocide (thus of the 9 ABC-based “Aboriginal genocide” search results none give actual details of the Aboriginal Genocide and several relate to denial of the Aboriginal Genocide ).

As Jesus stated "By their fruits ye shall know them" (Matthew. 7:16, the Holy Bible). These horrendous, Australia-complicit holocaust and genocide atrocities are proceeding apace while the Australian people remain in ignorance due to holocaust-ignoring and genocide-ignoring by Mainstream media and by the ABC in particular. Shame on them.
