For anti-racist Jews - and indeed ALL anti-racist humanitarians - the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “never again to anyone”, “bear witness” and “zero tolerance for lying”.
However these sacred injunctions are grossly violated by the anti-Arab anti-Semitic racist Zionists running Apartheid Israel and their Western backers variously involved in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide and Afghan Genocide (post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths 0.3 million, 2.5 million and 4.5 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 0.9 million and 2.4 million, respectively; refugees totalling 7 million, 5-6 million and 3-4 million, respectively, plus a further 2.5 million NW Pakistan Pashtun refugees) (2010 updated figures; for details and documentation see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide": http://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ).
All decent, anti-racist, humanitarians must vigorously
sideline those supporting racist Zionism, Apartheid Israel and racist
wars and occupations who are currently complicit in 0.7 million
non-violent excess deaths annually; continuing, racist perversion of
rights, humanitarian values and rational discourse in the Western
democracies; ignoring of worsening climate genocide (that may kill 10
billion non-Europeans this century through unaddressed man-made climate
change); and egregious anti-Jewish
anti-Semitism through falsely identifying decent, anti-racist Jews with
The "Jews Against Racist Zionism" website (see: http://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/ ) documents the views against racist Zionism of outstanding anti-racist, humanitarian Jewish scholars, leaders and writers.
Other key compilations of outstanding Jewish voices against racist Zionism have been provided by Canadian human rights lawyer Edward Corrigan in “Is it anti-Semitism to defend Palestinian human rights? Jewish opposition to Zionism”, Dissident Voice, 1 September 2009: http://dissidentvoice.org/2009/09/is-it-anti-semitic-to-defend-palestinian-human-rights/ and by eminent Jewish American commentator Stephen Lendman in “Jews against Zionism”, Baltimore Chronicle & Sentinel, 7 December 2009: http://www.baltimorechronicle.com/2009/120709Lendman.shtml .

The racist Zionists are anti-Arab anti-Semitic and also anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, posing an immense threat not just to Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims but also to decent, non-racist Jews around the world. However the racist Zionists (RZs) continue to mount an evil, world-wide smear campaign accusing anyone opposing Israeli human rights abuses in Palestine of being anti-Semitic.
This racist Zionist (RZ) falsehood is readily exposed by the large number of outstanding anti-racist, humanitarian Jews opposed to the evil of racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel as summarized by key compilations of outstanding Jewish voices against racist Zionism.
Accordingly it takes peculiar courage for non-Jews to run the gauntlet of racist Zionist (RZ) blackmail, machinations, and defamation.
As of 2011:
In 1880 there were about 0.5 million Indigenous Palestinians. Of the 25,000 Jews in Palestine half were immigrants (see: http://www.palestineremembered.com/Acre/Palestine-Remembered/Story559.html and http://www.mideastweb.org/palpop.htm ). Palestinian casualties of war violence total about 80,000 since 1948 and about 100,000 since 1936 (see “Palestinian casualties of war”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_casualties_of_war ). However one must also consider avoidable Palestinian deaths from war-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation that now total about 1.4 million since 1948. Palestinian refugees total about 7 million. This has been a Palestinian Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention.
According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry: “From 1920 through 1999, a total of 2,500 residents of Mandatory Palestine and, since 1948, the State of Israel fell victims to hostile enemy action; in most cases, terrorist attacks” (see: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Terrorism-+Obstacle+to+Peace/Palestinian+terror+before+2000/ ) and “1,218 people have been killed by Palestinian violence and terrorism since September 2000” (see: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Terrorism-+Obstacle+to+Peace/Palestinian+terror+since+2000/Victims+of+Palestinian+Violence+and+Terrorism+sinc.htm ).
The race-based, racist Zionist-run Apartheid State of Israel is a democracy by genocide. Of about 12 million Palestinians only the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis (21% of the Israeli population) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus part of Lebanon and a near-completely ethnically cleansed part of Syria, albeit as third class citizens. 1.6 million Occupied Palestinians are abusively confined to the Gaza Concentration Camp and 2.7 million Occupied Palestinians live under highly abusive military rule in West Bank Bantustans. About 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even live in Palestine. There are 5.9 million Jewish Israelis and 0.3 million non-Jewish and non-Arab Israelis.
Each year Apartheid
passively kills about 3,000 Occupied Palestinian infants, passively murders
about 5,600 Occupied Palestinians through deprivation and violently kills
another circa 600 Occupied Palestinians. Decent anti-racists around the World must
Boycott Apartheid Israel and its racist supporters
just as it successfully boycotted Apartheid Israel-supported Apartheid South
Africa after the Sharpeville Massacre (60 Africans killed) (see: https://sites.google.com/site/boycottapartheidisrael/
). The racist Zionists and their supporters, notably the Neocon American and
Zionist Imperialists (NAZIs), must be sidelined
in public life as have been like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders
and KKK (see “Palestinian Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/palestiniangenocide/
and the recent book “The Plight of the
The Non-Jews Against Racist Zionism (NARZ) website documents the views against racist Zionism of outstanding anti-racist, humanitarian non-Jewish scholars, leaders and writers.
