Churchill's Crimes from Indian Holocaust to Palestinian Genocide

In WW2 Churchill deliberately starved 6-7 million Indians to death,
continued to foster Muslim-Hindu antipathy that led to the horrors of
Indian Partition and persuaded his War Cabinet on racist Partition
of Palestine. Yet the holocaust-complicit Anglo media, academic and
politician Establishment is still in denial.

Last year I published an article in MWC News entitled "Media lying
over Churchill's crimes. British-Indian Holocaust" in which I
summarized 15 major crimes in which Winston Churchill was COMPLICIT
(notwithstanding that he is deservedly our hero for leadership in
the fight against Nazism).

Before this article was published, a Yahoo or Google search for
the phrase "Churchill's crimes" yielded about three (3) articles
about Winston Churchill's crimes - an extraordinary testament to the
Soviet-style effectiveness of Anglo mainstream media, academic and
politician lying, censorship, self-censorship, ignoring and denial.

After publication of my article on MWC News a Yahoo search for
the phrase "Churchill's crimes" yielded a peak of 35,000 URLs
which has shrunk (no doubt due to more Bush, neo-cons, and Zionist
Anglo censorship) to 17,400. Indeed pro-Zionist Google censorship -
deliberate LYING by omission - means that a Google search for the
phrase "Churchill's crimes" now yields 999 URLs and the direct link
to my evidently extremely high-impact article is completely missing.

For your convenience, I have simply listed below an expanded list of
immense crimes in which Churchill was complicit as a racist soldier,
politician, mass murderer and holocaust-denying writer - indeed he
was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 for his numerous
published works, especially his six-edition set The Second World
War in which he ignored his deliberate, remorseless murder of 6-7
million Indians in 1943-1945 [ I have provided estimates of violent
and non-violent avoidable deaths in square brackets].

1. British Indian Holocaust (1.8 billion excess deaths, 1757-1947; 10
million killed in post-1857 Indian Mutiny reprisals; 1 million starved,
1895-1897 Indian Famine; 6-9 million starved, 1899-1900 Indian Famine;
6-7 million starved under Churchill, Bengali Holocaust 1943-1945].

2. Sudan atrocities [horrendous British atrocities after the Battle
of Obdurman 1898].

3. Boer (Afrikaaner) Genocide [28,000 Afrikaaner women and children
died in British concentration camps, 1899-1902].

4. World War 1 promotion [World War I Allied military and civilian
dead 5.7 million and 3.7 million, respectively; German-allied (Central
Powers) military and civilian deaths 4.0 million and 5.2 million;
troop movement-exacerbated Spanish Flu Epidemic killed 20-100 million
people world wide. 1918-1922].

5. WW1 Dardanelles Campaign in Turkey [0.2 million Allied and Turkish
soldiers killed, 1915; precipitated 1915-1923 Turkish Armenian
Genocide, 1.5 million Armenians killed].

6. UK and US invasion of Russia 1917-1919 [millions died in the
Russian Civil War and the subsequent Russian Famine; 7 million died
in the circa 1930 Ukrainian Famine; and perhaps up to 20 million died
overall in Stalinist atrocities].

7. British suppression of the Arab revolt in Iraq (invaded by Britain
in 1914) [bombing of Kurds, poison gas use (1920s); violent UK
involvement on and off , 1914-2009; 1990-2008 Iraqi excess deaths
4 million; under-5 infant deaths 1.8 million; refugees currently
6 million].

8. Support for British Occupation and opposition to Indian
self-determination [1757-1947 excess deaths, 1.8 billion; 1895-1897
famine deaths1 million; 1899-1900 Indian Famine, deaths6-9 million
deaths; 1943-1945 Bengali Holocaust deaths 6-7 million].

9. World War 2 promotion [World War 2 military deaths 25 million and
civilian deaths about 67 million].

10. Promotion of Japan entry into World War 2 in order to involve the
US and hence ensure victory [35 million Chinese avoidable deaths,
1937-1945; 6-7 million Indians starved, Bengal 1943-1945; millions
more died in the WW2 Eastern Theatre].

11. Churchill knew Singapore was indefensible [8,000-15,000 killed,
130,000 captured in the 1941 Malaya campaign; 14,000 Australian,
16,000 British and 32,000 Indian troops surrendered in Singapore].

12. Churchill deliberately did not warn Americans about Pearl Harbor
attack [Eastern Theatre WW2 deaths 45 million].

13. WW2 Bengal Holocaust, Bengal Famine [deliberate starving to
death of of 6-7 million Indians; confessed by Churchill in a letter
to Roosevelt].

14. Churchill rejected top scientific advice and supported bombing
of German cities instead of protecting Atlantic convoys [0.16 million
allied airmen killed; 0.6 million German civilians killed; Battle of
the Atlantic almost lost; 7 million dead from famine in the Indian
Ocean region related to halving of Allied shipping in 1943].

15. Churchill acknowledged the crucial importance of maintaining
Hindu-Muslim antipathy to preserve British rule [1 million dead and
18 million Muslim and Hindu refugees associated with India-Pakistan
Partition in 1947].

16. 1944 UK War Cabinet decision Partition of Palestine [in 1878,
Jews were 5% of the Palestine population; in 1948 Jews were 1/3 of
the population; there are now over 7 million Palestinian refugees;
post-1967 Occupied Palestinian excess deaths 0.3 million, post-1967
under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million; excess deaths in countries partially
or completely occupied by Apartheid Israel now total about 24 million;
4 million Occupied Palestinians are still illegally and abusively
imprisoned by racist Zionists in their own country].

17. UK rejection of 1944 Brand plan to save Hungarian Jews [0.2-0.4
million killed by Nazis and Arrow Cross fascists out of 0.7 million;
Zionists also opposed the Brand plan]

18. British, American, Zionist, Australian and European adoption
of Churchill's holocaust commission and holocaust denying legacy,
with post-war atrocities involving invasion, occupation, devastation
and genocide [in relation to Occupiers (in parenthesis) 1950-2005
excess deaths in post-1945 occupied countries total 2 million (white
Australia), 36 million (Belgium), 142 million (France), 24 million
(Apartheid Israel), 0.7 million (Apartheid South Africa), 23 million
(Portugal), 37 million (Russia), 9 million (Spain), 727 million (the
UK) and 82 million (the US); 25 million Indigenous excess deaths in
post-1950 US Asian Wars; 9-11 million excess deaths associated with
1990-2008 Bush Wars; post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied Iraq 2
million, refugees 6 million; post-invasion excess deaths in Occupied
Afghanistan 4-6 million, refugees 4 million].

To paraphrase mathematician satirist Tom Lehrer's song "The Elements",
"These are the only Churchill crimes currently known to Harvard/But
there may be many others that haven't been discARvered".

While pro-Zionist Anglo censorship evidenced above is utterly
obnoxious, the Churchill Centre (US and world-wide) must be
complimented for publishing a critical review of my article, a Review
that adduced the opinions of major historians, including Professor
Sir Martin Gilbert, an eminent historian whose works I and no doubt
numerous others turn to for information about Churchill, World War 2 ,
the Jewish Holocaust and Jewish history (see: HERE ) . My responses
to what I will refer to as "the Review" are listed below.

(1). The Review was quite nastily critical of my article and commencing
with the false assertion "Mr. [Dr] Polya begins by dismissing all
historians who disagree with him as Anglo-American and Zionist
propagandists, including official biographer Sir Martin Gilbert" -
what I DID say was,

"Yet, to list just s few examples of UK-US holocaust ignoring, there
is absolutely no mention of the 1943-1945 Bengali Holocaust in the
biography of Winston Churchill by pro-Zionist Professor Sir Martin
Gilbert (Gilbert, M. (1991), Churchill. A Life (Heinemann, London);
the recent histories by leading conservative Australian historian
Professor Geoffrey Blainey (Blainey, G. (2000), A Short History
of the World (Viking, Melbourne), Blainey, G. (2004), A Very Short
History of the World (Viking, Melbourne), Blainey, G. (2005), A Short
History of the 20th Century (Penguin, Melbourne); the recent history
of Britain by pro-Zionist Professor Simon Schama (Schama, S. (2002),
A History of Britain (BBC, London)); or even in an important book on
Denial entitled "Denial. History betrayed" by Australian historian
Professor Tony Taylor (Monash University, Melbourne; see my review
""Denial" book ignores UK and US genocide crimes" ).

(2). The Review says that it sought comment and obtained the following
bald denial comment from Professor Sir Martin Gilbert: "Churchill
was not responsible for the Bengal Famine. I have been searching for
evidence for years: none has turned up. The 1944 Document volume of
the official biography [Hillsdale College Press] will resolve this
issue finally."

However with due respect for Professor Gilbert's eminence, (a)
Churchill was the ruler and the Ruler is responsible for the Ruled;
(b), 6-7 million Indians perished (latest estimate from medical
historian Dr Sanjoy Bhattacharya , Wellcome Institute, University
College London); (c) 1998 Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya
Sen blames the Ruler for a needless disaster; (d) and most importantly
Churchill himself actually Cconfessed his inaction as follows in a
now-released secret letter to Roosevelt in 1944 in stating "I am no
longer justified in not asking for your help" (p158, "Jane Austen
and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust
denial and the crisis in global sustainability").

For a recent, succinct account of the "forgotten" World War 2 Bengal
Famine see the 2008 BBC broadcast involving me, 1998 Economics Nobel
Laureate Professor Amartya Sen , Dr Sanjoy Bhattacharya , Wellcome
Institute, University College London and other scholars ).

(3) The Review then quite astonishingly supports my thesis and itself
damns Churchill with the following,

"Arthur Herman's excellent and balanced Gandhi & Churchill (New
York: Bantam, 2008, reviewed in Finest Hour 138: 51-52). There is
quite a lot on the Bengal Famine (pp 512 et. seq.), which Herman
believes "did more than Gandhi to undermine Indian confidence in
the Raj." Secretary of State for India Leo Amery, Herman writes,
"at first took a lofty Malthusian view of the crisis, arguing
that India was 'overpopulated' and that the best strategy was to
do nothing. But by early summer even Amery was concerned and urged
the War Cabinet to take drastic action.... For his part, Churchill
proved callously indifferent. Since Gandhi's fast his mood about
India had progressively darkened.....[He was] resolutely opposed to
any food shipments. Ships were desperately needed for the landings
in Italy....Besides, Churchill felt it would do no good. Famine or
no famine, Indians will 'breed like rabbits.' Amery prevailed on him
to send some relief, albeit only a quarter what was needed."

Malthusian over-population as an excuse for allowing mass death is
obscene. Yet Churchill put it more bluntly in the only public statement
of Churchill's about the Bengal famine that I have been able to find
is Churchill's notorious anti-Indian comment that "they breed like
rabbits" as quoted by India 's Nobel Prize-winning economist Professor
Amartya Sen in an essay to Asian Institute of Technology (2002):
"Winston Churchill's famous remark about the 1943 Bengal famine - that
it was caused by the tendency of the people to breed like rabbits -
belongs to this general tradition of blaming the colonial subject".

One has to turn to the Whitehall, London, UK supervisor of the 1840s
Irish Potato Famine (1 million killed, 1.5 million emigrated) ,
Charles Trevelyan, for a comparably obscene viewpoint about man-made
mass starvation: "This being altogether beyond the power of man, the
cure had been applied by the direct stroke of an all-wise Providence
in a manner as unexpected and unthought of as it is likely to be
effectual." (1846, C.E. Trevelyan, the responsible Undersecretary
for the Treasury, commenting in 1846 on the Irish famine as a "cure"
for Irish overpopulation) (see p257, Edwards, R.D. and Williams,
T.D. (1957) (editors), The Great Famine. Studies in Irish History
1845-52 (New York University Press, New York).

Indeed G.M. Trevelyan (Regius Professor of Modern History and Master
of Trinity College, Cambridge, and grandson of the English official
Charles Trevelyan who supervised the Irish Famine) fails to mention
the Irish Famine (and the Bengal Famine) in his "authoritative"
"History of England" (Longmans. London), except for a brief aside:
"the potato blight in Ireland in 1845-6 left him [Peel] no other
choice than either to suspend the Corn Laws or to allow the Irish to
die by tens of thousands" i.e. he suggests that the Irish Famine [1
million dead, 1.5 million forced to emigrate] was something averted
by benign English wisdom (see p114, Chapter 13, "Jane Austen and the
Black Hole of British History").

(4). The Review gets an opinion from historian Arthur Herman who,
notwithstanding his "Churchill proved callously indifferent" above,
states, QUOTE: "The idea that Churchill was in any way 'responsible'
or 'caused' the Bengal famine is of course absurd. The real cause
was the fall of Burma to the Japanese, which cut off India's main
supply of rice imports when domestic sources fell short, which they
did in Eastern Bengal after a devastating cyclone in mid-October
1942". However this is simply incorrect.

1998 Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen (Harvard
University, formerly at Cambridge University, who witnessed the Bengal
Famine as a child and was awarded the Nobel Prize for studies on
famines, including the Bengal Famine) is quite clear that the Bengal
Famine was NOT due to absence of food but to greatly elevated price in
a merciless, British-ruled free market in which those who couldn't
buy food simply starved. Burma occupation, Churchill's shipping
cut-backs, and divide-and-rule British granting of Indian provincial
food autonomy and other factors all contributed to the real killer -
the huge increase in the price of rice, the Bengali staple that led
to millions starving in the midst of plenty.

(5). The Review then argues that "There was a war on. More pressing
military matters were at hand which governed his actions and
decisions". This is indeed the view put forward by Professor Martin
Gilbert in his book "A History of the Twentieth Century. Volume Two
1933-1951" (William Morrow, New York , 1998) that is remarkable and
praiseworthy in British historiography for actually mentioning the
Bengal Famine,

[my additions in square brackets]: "In the summer of 1943, as supplies
of rice ran out [incorrect], famine spread through Bengal. Its
ravages were savage and swift. The poor, and villagers in the remoter
regions were its main victims [people starved in Calcutta], not only
in Bengal, but in neighboring Orissa and distant Malabar. Within a
few months, as many as 1,500,000 Indians had died [6-7 million died,
1943-1945]. The Bengal Famine was one of the worst famines of the
century [p522]...Between 1939 and 1945 disease and hunger had taken
their toll, with war conditions making it much harder to organize
alleviation. In Bengal, a million and half Indians died of starvation
[6-7 million died in Bengal, Assam and Orissa] [p725]".

Professor Sir Martin Gilbert (who I quote regularly on Jewish History
and the Jewish Holocaust) used the "excuse " for war exigencies for
the inability of the British to take requiste action - yet he tells
us in his Jewish Holocaust histories (e.g. Gilbert, M. (1982), Atlas
of the Holocaust (Michael Joseph, London)) that 1 in 6 Jews died from
deprivation. Just imagine if a history of the 20th century devoted
just a couple of sentences to the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead,
1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and commented "Between 1939 and 1945
disease and hunger had taken their toll, with war conditions making
it much harder to organize alleviation". And yet Professor Gilbert's
book "A History of the Twentieth Century" is an outstanding exception
in British historiography in actually mentioning the Bengal Famine
(6-7 million dead), the Bengali Holocaust that was indeed the first
WW2 atrocity to actually be described as a "Holocaust" by Jog in 1944
(see Jog, N.G. (1944), Churchill's Blind-Spot: India (New Book Company,

Winston Churchill totally ignored the Bengali Holocaust (and the 6-7
million people he deliberately murdered) in his 6-volume work "The
Second World War" for which in part he got the 1953 Nobel Prize for
Literature - and Professor Martin Gilbert also ignores the Bengali
Holocaust in his "definitive" history of Winston Churchill (see
Gilbert, M. (1991), Churchill. A Life (Heinemann, London)). Just
imagine a biography of Adolph Hitler that failed to mention the
Jewish Holocaust.

In Austria today anyone denying or minimizing the Jewish Holocaust
faces up to 10 years in prison and other European countries have
similarly criminalized such denial. Indeed it is also an offence
to deny the Armenian Genocide in France and Belgium and a few years
ago Germany suggested that the EU criminalize denial of all recent
holocausts (see "Genocide denial, No-penalty criminalization required
now" in MWC News).

(6). The Review further quotes Arthur Herman [my corrections in square
brackets]: "Churchill was concerned about the humanitarian catastrophe
taking place there, and he pushed for whatever famine relief efforts
India itself could provide; they simply weren't adequate [utterly
incorrect]. Something like three million people died in Bengal and
other parts of southern India as a result [6-7 million died]. We
might even say that Churchill indirectly broke the Bengal famine by
appointing as Viceroy Field Marshal Wavell, who mobilized the military
to transport food and aid to the stricken regions (something that
hadn't occurred to anyone, apparently) [Churchill repeatedly rejected
Wavell calls for help]."

General Wavell's diaries repeatedly make it clear that Churchill hated
Indians and steadfastly refused his pleas for assistance with the
Bengal Famine (see Moon, P. (1973) (editor), Wavell. The Viceroy's
Journal (Oxford University Press, London) and Chapter 14 and 15,
"Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History").

(7). The Review makes the astonishing assertion that "If the famine
had occurred in peacetime, it would have been dealt with effectively
and quickly by the Raj, as so often in the past". British India was
maintained by STARVATION - indeed a very good account of this is
given (with shocking photographs) by pro-Zionist Simon Schama in his
"History of Britain" (which nevertheless ignores the WW2 Bengal Famine)
(see Schama, S. (2002), A History of Britain (BBC, London); also see
Davis, M. (2001), Late Victorian Holocausts: El Nino Famines and the
Making of the Third World (Verso, London) and "Jane Austen and the
Black Hole of British History" by Gideon Polya).

British mass murder of Indians commenced with the Great Bengal Famine
in 1769-1779 (10 million deaths), concluded with the WW2 Bengal Famine
(6-7 million deaths) and Churchill-inspired Indian Partition - and
in between excess deaths (avoidable deaths) in 2 centuries of racist
British rule totalled 1.8 billion. Yet these horrendous realities
utterly ignored by Anglo historians (with a few notable exceptions)
in a process of continuing, racist holocaust denial.

This is what Colin Mason says of the Bengal Famine in his "A Short
History of Asia" (Macmillan, London, 2000, p178): "The famine,
little publicized at the time because of war-time censorship, and,
inexplicably, still ignored by many modern histories of India and most
standard reference works ... Several of the factors mentioned above
suggest a British "scorched earth policy: design to deny assets in
Bengal to the Japanese, at a monstrous cost, should they successfully
invade India, Those consequences severely indict British policy-makers
of the time, and the failure to investigate and acknowledge them,
is to the discredit of all subsequent British governments".

Today we have the same continuing ignoring, denial, excusing and
minimizing of not just the Bengal Famine (6-7 million dead) and
the British Indian Holocaust (1.8 billion excess deaths) but of the
continuing, present-day atrocities of the Palestinian Genocide, the
Iraqi Genocide and the Afghan Genocide ( post-invasion excess deaths
0.3 million, 2 million and 4-6 million, respectively; post-invasion
under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million , 0.6 million and 2.1 million,
respectively; and refugees totalling 7 million, 6 million and 4
million, respectively).

There is an ongoing Muslim Holocaust that is simply ignored by the
West. Thus post-1950 avoidable deaths (excess deaths, deaths that
did not have to happen) total 1.3 billion (the World), 1.2 billion
(the non-European World) and 0.6 billion (the Muslim World), these
estimates being consonant with estimates of post-1950 under-5 year
old infant deaths totalling 0.88 billion (the World), 0.85 billion
(the non-European World) and 0.4 billion (the Muslim World). 16
million people die avoidably each year on a Spaceship Earth (roughly
half of them Muslims) with the First World in charge of the flight
deck. Yet this ongoing Muslim Holocaust is utterly ignored in the
racist, lying, Zionist-dominated Western Murdochracies (for details
see "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950", G.M. Polya,
Melbourne, 2007: ).

However man-made global warming (the major climate criminal culprits
being Zionist-backed US- Bush and their White Australian lackeys)
threatens an even greater atrocity of Climate Genocide that,
according to top UK climate scientist Professor James Lovelock FRS,
will leave only 500 million (mostly European) survivors by the end of
the century. As with the Bengal Famine, the post-war global avoidable
mortality holocaust, a large proportion of the victims of this looming
Climate Genocide will be Muslims in a terminal Muslim Holocaust about
1,000 times greater than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust.

The fundamental messages from the Nazi German Jewish Holocaust ) (5-6
million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and the contemporaneous
but "forgotten" (and when mentioned mostly "excused") British Bengali
Holocaust (6-7 million dead) are "zero tolerance for racism", never
again to anyone" and "bear witness".

Yet in the last few weeks, as of Day 23 the racist Zionists
(RZs) running Apartheid Israel have killed 1,310 Gazan inmates
of the Israeli Gaza Concentration Camp as reprisals for zero (0)
Israelis killed by rockets from brutally and murderously blockaded
Gaza in the previous year - a reprisals "death ratio" of 1,310/0 =
infinity. Occupied Palestinian violent and non-violent excess deaths
since September 2000 total about 6,100 and 35,400, respectively ,
as compared to 1,185 Israeli deaths (see "Palestinian-Israeli death
ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza war-crimes" on MWC News).

UK, US, White Australian and Israeli state terrorism against the
non-European and Muslim world will simply continue as long as the
deadly consequences of these present and past imperialist excesses
are simply ignored by Mainstream media, academics and politicians in
the Western Murdochcracies. The REALITY behind this Zionist-Bush-ite
"terror hysteria" big lie is astounding: 7,000 Westerners killed by
Muslim-origin non-state terrorists in 40 years (including Israelis
and assuming, against substantial evidence to the contrary, no US or
Israeli involvement in the 9/11 atrocity) versus 9-11 million violent
and non-violent avoidable deaths associated so far with the Bush Wars
, 1990-2009 (see "9-11 excuse for US global genocide. The reveal 9-11
atrocity: millions dead (9-11 million) in Bush Wars (1990-2009)" .

There must be zero tolerance for racism, invasions, occupations,
mass murder and lying.

Dear Reader, you can do your bit in the War against Zionist-Bush Lies
by (a) informing everyone you can and (b) by eschewing any avoidable
business dealings with people, institutions, corporations and countries
involved in the Palestinian Genocide, the Muslim Holocaust and the
looming Climate Genocide.
