Dr Gideon Polya is a Melbourne-based humanitarian, scientist, academic, artist, and human rights and climate change activist (see: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya ).

 Dr Gideon Polya on the substantially Muslim Holocaust of the 1943-1945 Bengal Famine as described in his book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability” (1998, 2008): “Chapter 15: Churchill, World War 2, the Bengal Famine and the Jewish Holocaust; Churchill’s life and his hatred for Indians; Churchill and British air defence, knowledge of the indefensibility of Singapore, Japanese entry into the War and fore-knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor; Churchill, Lindeman, the importance of proper scientific advice to government, the air war in Europe, the Battle of the Atlantic, the shipping crisis and famine in India; famine as a strategic weapon to control restless subjects; Muslim containment, the Middle East, oil, the refusal to allow Jewish escape from Europe, the Jewish Holocaust and the forgotten, substantially Muslim Holocaust of Bengal; Churchill’s contribution to Muslim-Hindu antipathy as his final legacy to India; the effective deletion of the Bengal Famine from history and general public perception.” [1].


Dr Gideon Polya on global avoidable mortality and  the ongoing Muslim Holocaust (2004): “Global mortality , Iraq and the Muslim Holocaust…Whether a person dies violently or dies from avoidable disease or deprivation, the end result is the same. Further, any avoidable death requires honest public scrutiny in order to make the world a safer place. Of course, when mass mortality occurs there is an even more pressing need for public assessment of causality, culpability and complicity. Thus the crimes of the Axis powers that killed scores of millions in World War 2 were subsequently examined in war crimes trials.

Repetition of immense crimes against humanity such as the Jewish Holocaust is made less likely when the responsible society acknowledges the crime, apologizes, makes amends and accepts the injunction "never again". Unfortunately the dictum "history is written by the victors" applies to ostensibly free and open societies as well as to totalitarian states. Thus while the Jewish Holocaust is known to everyone, very few would know of the man-made famine in British-ruled Bengal that took some 4 million lives during World War 2 - it has been effectively expunged from British history, as have 2 centuries of mass mortality in British India …At the other end of the scale, the data indicate horrendous mortality in the Muslim world. Thus the "excess mortality" in preponderantly Muslim countries plus the present Muslim proportion-based component of the "excess mortality" of other significantly Muslim countries totals about 550 million for the period 1950-2004.

This death toll is about one hundred times that of the Jewish Holocaust (6 million victims) and of the "forgotten" World War 2 man-made famine in British-ruled Bengal (4 million Muslim and Hindu victims).

The Muslim Holocaust has many components - thus "excess mortality" has totalled 5.2 million for Iraq since 1950, 1.5 million for Iraq since 1991 and 340,000 for the Occupied Palestinian Territories since 1967. Since 1950 "excess mortality" has totalled about 49 million for the Turkish Near East and Central Asia and 70 million for the Arab Middle East and North Africa - with the present Muslim proportion-based component of post-1950 "excess mortality" estimated at 93 million for East and South East Asia and the Pacific, 148 million for South Asia, and about 189 million for non-Arab Africa.

The sheer magnitude of this Muslim "excess mortality" compels one to address the following questions to First Worlders: when does mass mortality become a holocaust, when is it "fit" to be reported by our media - and when does our complicity become morally insupportable?” [2].

.Dr Gideon Polya on the Muslim Holocaust and Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality (2005):  “The fundamental process of science successively involves considering all the data, setting up testable models of reality, gathering new data to test such potentially falsifiable hypotheses, and then refining our models to accommodate the new data set.

A fundamental rule for scientists is that you cannot rub out the data; this will simply derail the scientific process.

‘Rubbing out’ is particularly dangerous when the data have a direct bearing on human mortality. History ignored yields history repeated, and a ‘rubbing out’ or denial of huge mortality events such as the Jewish Holocaust will surely greatly increase the probability of their recurrence.

Indeed some countries, notably Germany, have made Holocaust denial illegal, albeit only in relation to the Jewish Holocaust.

Nevertheless an extraordinary feature of the post-war world has been the resolute refusal of Anglo-American media to report avoidable mass mortality and other atrocities linked to Western activities. Thus in 1943-44 a man-made, market-forces famine killed an estimated four million Hindu and Muslim Bengalis in British-ruled India, but most Australians will simply never have heard of this ‘forgotten holocaust’.

According to Amartya Sen, the 1998 Economics Nobel Laureate, prosperous, wartime Calcutta sucked food out of a starving countryside, those who could not afford the fourfold increase in the price of rice simply perished. Civilian and military sexual abuse of starving females involved some 30,000 victims in Calcutta alone and probably hundreds of thousands throughout Bengal. The famine-enforced sexual exploitation of starving women and girls in the British Military Labour Corps demands comparison with the ‘comfort women’ abuses of the Japanese Imperial Army.

To reiterate, history ignored yields history repeated, but unfortunately lying by omission is entrenched in Anglo-American mainstream media.

I have been researching and writing a book on post-1950 avoidable global mortality. This has involved using United Nations data to calculate the avoidable mortality, (or technically, excess mortality) for every country in the world since 1950. Avoidable mortality is the difference between the actual deaths in a country and the deaths expected for a peaceful, decently-run country with the same demographics.

The post-1950 avoidable mortality has been 1.3 billion for the world, 1 billion for the Third World and 0.5 billion for the Muslim World, a Muslim Holocaust 100 times greater than the Jewish Holocaust or the contemporaneous but ‘forgotten’ Bengal Famine in British-ruled India.

These figures are horrendous and demand some kind of corroboration. To achieve this I have independently calculated the post-1950 under-5 infant mortality for every country in the world. The post-1950 under-5 infant mortality has totalled about 0.9 billion for the world, 0.8 billion for the non-European world and 0.4 billion for the Muslim world. One can calculate from United Nations demographic data that about 90% of the non-European under-5 infant mortality has been potentially avoidable.” [3].

Dr Gideon Polya on holocaust commission and holocaust denial by the US Alliance (2006): “Christmas is almost upon us and the World – especially the mainly nominally Christian Western World - pauses to remember the birth of Jesus Christ and to celebrate the sanctity of Mother and Child. Yet much of the Western World through the Bush US Alliance is complicit in horrendous crimes against humanity in Occupied Palestine, Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan – in gross violation of the teachings of Jesus and of the Decalogue (Ten Commandments) of the Abrahamic religions that declares “thou shalt not kill”. Much of the West is complicit in war criminal mass murder, genocide and mass infanticide led by Bush America in the Muslim World – yet the carnage continues due to the IGNORING of this Muslim Holocaust by Western politicians and racist, lying, holocaust-denying Mainstream media.

MASS MURDER. Dr Burnham's medical epidemiology research group at the prestigious American Johns Hopkins University has estimated 0.7 million post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Iraq (published in the top medical journal The Lancet in October 2006) - this falls between estimates from 3 other authoritative data sets of 0.6 to 0.8 million. Taking a Jordan/Syria baseline for death rate comparison and the latest Lancet data yields a 0.9 million estimate for post-invasion excess deaths in US-occupied Iraq (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ and http://mwcnews.net/content/view/10528/42/ ). The post-invasion excess deaths (avoidable deaths, deaths that did not have to happen) in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories presently  total 0.3, 0.9 and 2.1 million, respectively, as determined from the latest UN and medical literature demographic data (for analysis and documentation see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11293/42/ ).

This carnage is due to UK, US, Australian, Coalition, Israeli and NATO violation of the Geneva Conventions which demand that Occupiers must do everything in their power to keep their Conquered subjects alive. Thus Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilians in Time of War (see: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/92.htm ).” [4].

Dr Gideon Polya on Climate Genocide and near-terminal 21st century Muslim Holocaust (2010): “Both Dr James Lovelock FRS (Gaia hypothesis) and Professor Kevin Anderson ( Director, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester, UK) have recently estimated that fewer than 1 billion people will survive this century due to unaddressed, man-made global warming – noting that the world population is expected to reach 9.5 billion by 2050, these estimates translate to a climate genocide involving deaths of 10 billion people this century, this including 6 billion under-5 year old infants, 3 billion Muslims in a terminal Muslim Holocaust, 2 billion Indians, 1.3 billion non-Arab Africans, 0.5 billion Bengalis, 0.3 billion Pakistanis and 0.3 billion Bangladeshis.” [5].
