In recent years there has been increasing censorship of Alternative media by the Mainstream. Google is owned by Alphabet, the world’s biggest media organization,  and has a bad record of censoring progressive  voices. I have just published a 400-page book “US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide” that contains a List of 60 Holocaust and Genocide atrocities (many UK- or US-imposed). However a Countercurrents article about the book and including  this List has suddenly been rendered “invisible” by  Google.

As part of a global campaign to publicize my book (“US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide” by Gideon Polya, Korsgaard Publishing, Germany, 4 June 2020: https://www.amazon.com/US-Imposed-Post-9-Muslim-Holocaust-Genocide/dp/8793987056 ),

I sent details of the book (notably including  the Table of Contents)  to journalists, politicians, activists and scholars around the world. However after 40 days there  was utter Silence from the Mainstream and so I published an article in Countercurrents entitled Gideon Polya, “Racist Mainstream ignores “US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide””, Countercurrents, 17 July 2020: https://countercurrents.org/2020/07/racist-mainstream-ignores-us-imposed-post-9-11-muslim-holocaust-muslim-genocide/ .

I followed this up by sending the following further letter  to thousands of people around the world:

START LETTER. Dear etc,

“US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide” by Gideon Polya (Korsgaard Publishing, Germany, 4 June 2020)   details the 21st century Muslim Holocaust (over 30 million premature deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since 9/11 ) as well as 60 other variously past or ongoing holocausts and genocides. Thousands in the  Mainstream were apprised over 40 days, but  the Silence has been Deafening. Evidently black and brown lives don’t matter to the racist Mainstream.

“Deaths from violence and imposed deprivation” are well reported  for the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million) but are largely  ignored for the WW2 European Holocaust of Slavs, Jews and Roma (30 million),  the Australia-complicit, UK-imposed WW2 Bengali Holocaust (6-7  million), the 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),  the post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust (over 30 million), and the worsening Climate Genocide (in the absence of requisite climate action, 10 billion to die prematurely this century en route to a sustainable human  population in 2100 of only 0.5-1.0 billion).

The Epilogue of the book alphabetically lists 60 mostly “forgotten” holocaust and genocide atrocities with deaths from violence and imposed deprivation in brackets in each case. One can envisage monuments detailing all these  atrocities being erected in every city in every country in the world. Holocaust ignored yields holocaust repeated. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Please tell everyone you can (for details see Gideon Polya, “Racist Mainstream ignores “US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide””, Countercurrents, 17 July 2020: https://countercurrents.org/2020/07/racist-mainstream-ignores-us-imposed-post-9-11-muslim-holocaust-muslim-genocide/  and  https://www.amazon.com/US-Imposed-Post-9-Muslim-Holocaust-Genocide/dp/8793987056 ).

Yours sincerely, Dr Gideon Polya, Melbourne, Australia END LETTER

Within a few days, through whatever mechanism, the Google Robot  suddenly ceased recognizing  the URL (Uniform Resource Locator or web address) of my Countercurrents article. As of 23 July 2020 a Bing Search for  “Racist Mainstream ignores “US-Imposed Post-9/11 Muslim Holocaust & Muslim Genocide”” yielded 16,500 results (with my Countercurrents article #1 on page #1) whereas a Google Search  failed  to elicit the Countercurrents article per se  in 6 results ( although the  #1 result was a re-publication of my article in an on-line magazine called JUST: http://www.just-international.org/articles/racist-mainstream-ignores-us-imposed-post-9-11-muslim-holocaust-muslim-genocide/ ). A further Google Search including numerous results omitted in the Initial Search  still failed to elicit the Countercurrents article URL per se.

Final comments.

Holocaust ignoring and genocide ignoring  are far, far worse than repugnant holocaust denying and genocide denying because the latter can at least permit refutation and public discussion. Holocaust ignored yields holocaust repeated. Genocide ignored yields genocide repeated. History ignored yields history repeated. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Please tell everyone you can. Lest we forget.
