I am a long-time Countercurrents correspondent and on 4 June 2020  published in Germany a large book entitled “US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide” that is substantially based on articles I have published in Countercurrents as well as in other progressive media over the last 2 decades.  Despite thousands of Mainstream journalists around the world being informed over the last 40 days, the Silence has been Deafening. Evidently black and brown lives don’t matter to the English-speaking Western Mainstream.

(1). The essence of this exhaustively documented,  400-page book is as follows:   

While holocaust means a huge number of deaths, genocide is defined by the UN Genocide Convention as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group”.  Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War demand that an Occupier must supply life-sustaining food and medical services to its Conquered Subjects “to the fullest extent of the means available to it”. “Deaths from violence and imposed deprivation” are well known for the Germany-imposed WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million) but are largely  ignored for the Germany-imposed WW2 European Holocaust of Slavs, Jews and Roma (30 million),  the Australia-complicit, British-imposed WW2 Bengali Holocaust (6-7  million), the Japan-imposed WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35-40 million), and ongoing atrocities such as the Australian Aboriginal Genocide (2 million),  the Palestinian Genocide (2 million), the Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust (1,500 million post-1950 deaths from deprivation),  and the post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide (over 30 million).

Holocaust ignoring and genocide ignoring are far, far worse than repugnant  holocaust denial and genocide denial because the latter at least permit refutation and public debate. My  new book “US-imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide” quantitatively  records 60 such genocidal atrocities, and in particular focusses  on exposing and detailing  the Mainstream-ignored, huge  mortality in the ongoing, US-imposed post-9/11  US War on  Muslims (over 30 million deaths from violence and imposed deprivation) and the ongoing Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust (15 million avoidable deaths from deprivation annually; see Gideon Polya, “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, that includes a succinct history  of all countries and  is now available for free perusal on the Web: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/   ).  These atrocities will be dwarfed by the worsening Climate Genocide in which, in the absence of requisite urgent action,  10 billion people will perish prematurely this century en route  to a sustainable human population of only 0.5-1.0 billion in 2100 (see “Climate Genocide”:  https://sites.google.com/site/climategenocide/  ).  Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity.

The book concludes: “Decent people must oppose the neoliberal Gadarene rush to global suicide by (a) informing everyone they can, (b) following the example of the marvellous Greta Thunberg and the School Strikers and launching a Climate Revolution (peaceful and nonviolent of course) with millions out in the streets, and (c) urging and applying Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against all people, politicians, parties, collectives, corporations and countries disproportionately involved in the worsening climate emergency, climate genocide and Biosphere destruction. There is no Planet B and there must be zero tolerance for the neoliberal, genocidal and terracidal climate criminals. However, as argued in the Introductory comments, fundamentally we must all rigorously adhere to the principle that “all men are created equal and have an inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” – and that means an end to Mainstream mendacity, the ongoing Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust, the ongoing Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide, and the worsening Climate Genocide”.

LETTER. Dear Dr/ Professor/Senator/ Honorable Member/ fellow journalist/ fellow humanitarian etc,

New book: Climate Genocide & Muslim Holocaust

2 decades in the making,  my 400 page, science-informed,  humanitarian book has just been published in Germany – Gideon Maxwell Polya, “US-imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide”, Korsgaard Publishing, Germany, 2020 (for details see: https://korsgaardpublishing.com/portfolio/23945/  and https://www.amazon.com/US-Imposed-Post-9-Muslim-Holocaust-Genocide/dp/8793987056 ).

A picture says a thousand words – for a complete  image of my big “Manhattan Madonna” painting (1.3 x 2.9 metres) that was used for the front and back cover of the book see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideonpolya/3429196820/in/set-72157616584873236/ . See also my huge painting for West-Muslim World friendship  entitled  “Isfahan Matisse”:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/gideonpolya/4290121654 .

While the terms “holocaust”, “genocide” and “Geneva Convention observance” are precisely defined, the terminology  and shocking underlying substance of most of the  chapter headings (see below) are overwhelmingly  ignored  by Western Mainstream politicians, academics  and journalists in a process of ongoing holocaust ignoring and genocide ignoring that is far, far worse than repugnant  holocaust denial and genocide denial because the latter at least permit refutation and public debate.

This appalling catalogue of human suffering and premature death in the 21st century Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide should be considered in the context of atrocities in the 20th century and earlier. The Epilogue succinctly,  quantitatively and comprehensively details deaths from violence and deprivation in man-made famines, holocausts, and genocides from the 19th century Irish Famine, the “forgotten” 1757-1947 Indian Holocaust, and the “forgotten” WW2 Bengali Holocaust   to the 21st century Muslim Holocaust, and  including the worsening Climate Genocide (Chapters 1, 19 & 21) and the ongoing Australian Aboriginal Genocide that is quantitatively compared with the ongoing Palestinian Genocide in Chapter 16.

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. We are obliged to bear witness. Please tell everyone you can.

Yours sincerely, Dr Gideon Polya, Melbourne, Australia
