Below are presented details of this week’s 100th Anniversary of the WW1 Australian Beersheba Charge, the UK Balfour Declaration and the commencement of the Palestinian Genocide in 1917.
- 31 October 1917 Australian Beersheba Charge, British Empire conquest of Palestine and Palestinian Famine.
This week variously ignorant or mendacious Australian jingoists are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the famous charge of the Australian 4th Light Horse Brigade of the Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Mounted Division on 31 October 1917 that captured Beersheba and thus fatally compromised the Ottoman Turkish defensive line stretching from Beersheba to Gaza on the Mediterranean coast. Palestine and thence Syria rapidly fell to the British under General Allenby . While this was a famous cavalry charge that is much celebrated in mindlessly racist and jingoist Australia, the immediate consequences for the Palestinians were devastating. War-imposed deprivation in Palestine under the genocidal British was associated with a Palestinian Famine in which 100,000 Palestinian died as estimated from a catastrophic 100,000 population deficit in WW1 Palestine [33-36].

The UN Security Council Resolution 2334 ignored the crime of the near-half century Occupation by Apartheid Israel but at least spelled out the egregious violations of international law associated with that Occupation. To that extent, passage by the UN Security Council of Resolution 2334 (unanimously except for abstention by an intractably racist US) is an ineradicable game changer. The ongoing Palestinian Genocide by race-based Apartheid Israel has now been recognized 14 to 0 by the UN Security Council, if not with use of that terminology, by “Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions”.

“A Lover’s Country” is an important, well-written and eminently readable novel by academic and human rights activist Stuart Rees based on the real life event of the award of the prestigious Sydney Peace Prize in 2003 to Palestinian writer, scholar, legislator and activist Hanan Ashrawi that aroused the ire of the ferocious Australian Zionist Lobby and its Mainstream journalist, politician and academic supporters that dominate media and public life in Australia… Before reviewing “A Lover’s Country”  in detail, it is useful to sketch the major features of the ongoing Palestinian Genocide by US-, UK-, France-, Canada- and Australia-backed, nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run, democracy by genocide Apartheid Israel…”

in the face of immense evil, such as the Palestinian Genocide and the US War on Muslims, this dispassionate, numerical approach is not enough to describe gut-wrenching awfulness and we also need art, music, poetry, passionate prose, and indeed neologisms (new words), and this latter approach is used with unrelenting, compelling force by writer, poet and English professor William Cook in “Age of Fools”

Zionism is genocidal racism in awful theory and horrendous practice and accordingly should be sidelined from public life as have been like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). However “polite constructive engagement” and ruthless Zionist subversion has resulted in Zionist domination of Western Mainstream media and political parties and the Western myth of a “2-state solution peace process” in a land that has been over 90% ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinians. Thus the racist Zionists (RZs) – who are the world’s worst anti-Arab anti-Semites (by promotion of the Palestinian Genocide and the Muslim Genocide) and the world’s worst anti-Jewish anti-Semites (by false defamation of anti-racist Jews and false and defamatory conflation of all Jews with the genocidal crimes of Apartheid Israel) – have been highly successful in falsely labelling opposition to Israeli genocide and Apartheid as “anti-Semitism” and, through bribery, threats and blackmail, obtaining the resolute support of the major Western political parties…

Apartheid Australia and Apartheid Australia-backed Apartheid Israel have appalling, continuing records of violating the human rights of their Indigenous Peoples through the Australian Aboriginal Genocide and the Palestine Genocide, respectively, and must be held to account by the civilized world through Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) for their genocidal crimes and for currently violating all 46 Articles of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The UN General Assembly’s 61st regular session overwhelmingly voted for the adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) on 13 September 2007.
