Passive genocide in Iraq
Milli Gazette Online
The Ruler is responsible for the Ruled. Mass mortality associated with grossly insufficient provision of life-preserving requisites by the UK-US Coalition in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories constitutes horrendous passive genocide — as set out in a recent article in Al-Jazeerah entitled "Latest UN Data Reveal UK-US War on Muslim Women and Children" (see: http://www.aljazeerah.info/Opinion%20editorials/2005%20Opinion%20Editorials/May/29%20o/Latest%20UN%20Data%20Reveal%20UK-US%20War%20on%20Muslim%20Women%20and%20 Children%20By%20Gideon%20Polya.htm):
"From the latest UN population division data (2005) (see: http://esa.un.org/unpp/index.asp?panel=1) it can be calculated that the post-invasion avoidable mortality and under-5 infant mortality have been about 370,000 and 260,000, respectively, in Iraq and 1.5 million and 1.2 million, respectively, in Afghanistan ... The number of US-led Coalition military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan has been about 2,000 (see: http://icasualties.org/oif/) as compared to the post-invasion under-5 year old infant deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories that total 1.5 million. Thus 750 Muslim infants have died in the post-invasion Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories for every Coalition military death — as compared to a ratio of 0.3 Jewish children killed during World War II for every Axis military death".
Cowardly, dishonest and racist Anglo-American and Australian mainstream media refuse to report the horrendous Coalition passive genocide in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories. Holocaust denial — whether of the World War II Jewish Holocaust (Shoah), the horrendous but "forgotten" man-made Bengal Famine in World War II British-ruled India or of continuing First World-complicit avoidable mass mortality in the non-European World — is utterly repugnant.
Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. We are obliged to inform everyone and to act ethically in our consumer and business dealings with the people and countries of the US-led Coalition responsible for this continuing outrage against Muslim mothers and infants.
