The "Palestinian Genocide Essays" site contains a series of carefully researched articles by Dr Gideon Polya about the ongoing Palestinian Genocide. People are encouraged to use this resource to inform others about the Palestinian Genocide and indeed are free to re-publish these articles with attribution

Many of these articles were originally published by the humane and ethical Media With Conscience News (MWC News) in the period 2005-2010. However this site was eliminated in January 2010, although a new MWC News has resumed its outstanding role in ethical, humanitarian reportage (see: http://mwcnews.org/ ). Accordingly, links to MWC News prior to circa January 2010 in these articles will not work. Further, since these articles were recovered from my files, the date of submission to MWC News is given.

 

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. We are obliged to inform others about abuses of humanity. We cannot walk by on the other side.

 

The Palestinian Holocaust, Palestinian Genocide has so far been associated  with 0.3 million post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths, 0.2 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths, and 7 million refugees -  it is a genocide as defined in International Law by Article 2 of the 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.”

Dr Gideon Polya has been teaching Biochemistry at a leading Australian university for 4 decades (he currently teaches Biochemistry theory and laboratory courses to second year Agricultural Sceince students). He  published some 130 scientific works in a 5 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London, 2003). He has recently published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007:  http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/  ); see also his contribution “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in  “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007): http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/ockham/stories/s1445960.htm ). He has just published a revised and updated 2008 version of his 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History” (see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ) as biofuel-, globalization- and climate-driven global food price increases threaten a greater famine catastrophe than the man-made famine in British-ruled India that killed 6-7 million Indians in the “forgotten” World War 2 Bengal Famine (see recent BBC broadcast involving Dr Polya, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and others: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot/bengalfamine_programme.html ).
