85 Ways Zionist Australian Labor Government Betrays Palestinian Human Rights & Humanity

Palestine

The new Australian Labor Government was elected in May 2022 with the help of Greens preferences in the Australian compulsory and preferential  voting system. However despite pro-Palestinian moves by the Labor Party membership, the US- and Zionist-beholden Labor Government has grossly betrayed Palestinian human rights, Australian voters, Australia, and indeed Humanity in 85 ways that make Labor  utterly unfit to govern and trash Australia’s International  reputation.

Most Australians were pleased that the Centre-Right Labor Government replaced the corrupt , dishonest, mendacious, racist, anti-science, anti-environment, climate criminal, war criminal, and human rights–violating Right-extreme Right Liberal Party-National Party Coalition Government. Indeed the eminent lawyer and former Human Rights Commissioner Professor Gillian Triggs condemned the Coalition as “ideologically opposed to human rights“.

Anti-Apartheid hero and Nobel Laureate Nelson Mandela famously stated “The UN took a strong stand against apartheid; and over the years, an international consensus was built, which helped to bring an end to this iniquitous system. But we know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians”.

However as summarized  below, under the new Australian Labor Government Australia continues to shockingly betray Palestinian  human rights, and  human rights in general,  in 85 ways:

(A). Diplomacy, UN, international law, and human rights.

The Australian Labor Government  

(1). fervently supports Apartheid Israel. Under the Australian Labor Government Australia continues as second only to Zionist-perverted America  as a fervent supporter of Apartheid Israel.

(2). supports Apartheid.  Further to (1), politicians, governments and countries who support Apartheid Israel are supporting the crime of Apartheid that is condemned by the UN  Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid. 30 years ago politicians, governments and countries that  supported Apartheid in any way were condemned by  Humanity and were punished by globally-endorsed sanctions and boycotts.

(3). opposes Boycotts Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel and its supporters. Labor leaders have condemned BDS, setting Australia apart from decent Humanity.

(4). uses blatant falsehood over Israeli Apartheid to support Apartheid Israel. Labor has falsely denied the reality of Israeli Apartheid going so far as to falsely claim that assertions of Israeli Apartheid diminish leaders in the fight against South African Apartheid. In reality leading heroes in the fight against  South African Apartheid have condemned Israeli Apartheid, as indeed has the present South African Government. Leading global and Israeli human rights groups have condemned Israeli Apartheid. 7.5 million Indigenous Palestinians are 50% of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel (Jewish Israelis 47%) but the 5.5 million Occupied Palestinians (73% of the Indigenous Palestinian Subjects, and denied all human rights specified by the UDHR) cannot vote for the government ruling them i.e. they are subject to egregious Apartheid. .

(5). voted No to the 2022 UNGA Anti-Nazi resolution. Under the Coalition Australia merely abstained from the UNGA Anti-Nazi Resolution in 2021, but under the Albanese Labor Government Australia voted No to the UNGA Anti-Nazi resolution in November 2022, a rare and appalling instance in which Labor was worse than the Coalition. For 5-6 million obvious reasons even genocidally racist Apartheid Israel has always voted Yes to this annual Anti-Nazi Resolution.

(6). voted No to the UNGA referral for opinion  of ongoing illegal Israeli Occupations to the International Court of Justice. This was tacit admission that Apartheid Israel was violating International Law but that pro-Apartheid Israel Australia does not want an authoritative opinion about this from the ICJ.

(7). gives a paltry $10 million annually to UNRWA but approves massive and deadly arms sales to and from Apartheid Israel. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is the major aid organisation for Palestinians, noting that 8 million Exiled Palestinians represent about 10% of the World’s refugees. In contrast to this parsimony Labor approves massive arms sales to and from Apartheid Israel that in the last 2 decades alone has  violently killed 10,000 Occupied Palestinians and killed 90,000 more through deadly imposed deprivation.

(8). dishonestly supports a “2 state solution” that is already dead and opposed by Apartheid Israel. Apartheid Israel has ethnically cleansed 90% of Palestine, and the present Apartheid Israeli Government  claims all of Palestine for the “Jewish State”. According to a former US Ambassador to Apartheid Israel and the UN, Israel  would concede  no more than 4.4%  of Palestine to such a state, and that the presently 5.5 million Occupied Palestinians will eventually be completely removed from Palestine. Zionist leaders from Theodor Herzl to Benjamin Netanyahu have been explicit, Nazi-style and  genocidal racists in advocating mass ethnic cleansing. The new fascist Apartheid Israeli Government has made it clear that it claims all of Palestine plus parts of Lebanon and Syria.

(9). ignores huge power imbalance in any “2-state” negotiations. Nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel has 100 nuclear weapons, submarine-based and other delivery systems, a navy, an air force, a huge high technology war industry, one of the world’s biggest armed forces, and massive military and diplomatic support from pro-Apartheid America and the US Alliance including US lackey Australia. In contrast some Occupied Palestinians are only armed with light arms and Gaza homemade rockets have killed 40 Israelis in the last 20 years. About 4,000 Zionists have been killed by Palestinians since 1920, and Israelis have murdered about 4,000 fellow Israelis since 2000. In stark contrast,  the WW1 onwards Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence (0.1 million) and imposed deprivation (2.1 million).

(10). falsely lists Hamas as a terrorist organization. In 2006 Hamas overwhelmingly won the Occupied Palestinian elections conducted under Israeli guns. The Hamas MPs were immediately declared by the US and Apartheid Israel to be “terrorists” and had to flee to Gaza to escape Israeli violence. Today Hamas remains a major political party for Occupied Palestinians.

(11). will persecute and imprison Australian Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims supporting Hamas and Hezbollah. Whatever you think of their polices (e.g. I am a secular Humanist atheist devoted to Gandhian non-violence) the reality is that Hamas and Hezbollah are Muslim national liberation organizations defending Arab lands from genocidally racist Zionist invaders, and doing so with massive popular support in Palestine and Lebanon, respectively. In contrast, Australia has participated in all post-1950 US Asian wars, atrocities that were associated with 40 million Asian deaths from violence and war-imposed deprivation (Labor supported all but the Iraq and Vietnam wars). The Coalition and Labor are serial war criminal parties, and if number of deaths are a measure of terrorism they are vastly more “terrorist” than Hamas and Hezbollah.

(12). will indefinitely and abusively  imprison boat-borne Palestinian and other  refugees without charge or trial. Displaced and exiled Palestinians represent about 10% of world refugees. In 2013 Labor Government initiated a heartless, criminal and child-abusing policy of indefinite imprisonment without charge or trial of any refugees arriving in Australia by boat, and such people were highly-abusively detained in concentration camps  on Nauru and on Manus Island (Papua New Guinea). The morally degenerate  Labor Government continues with these evil and criminal policies today. Indeed a dozen years earlier in about 2001 a young Palestinian refugee Aladdin Sisalem was detained alone on Manus Island for 18 months (it cost the Australian Government $250,000 a month to keep him there).

(13). declines to recognize a Palestinian State even though this is Labor Party policy. The Labor Party membership supports recognition of the State of Palestine but the racist, Zionist-subverted and US lackey Labor Government still refuses to recognize the Palestinian State. Back in 1948 Labor PM Ben Chifley advised by his successor as Labor leader,  Dr Herbert Vere Evatt, recognized Israel but not Palestine, a racist policy followed by all Labor leaders to the present. If Labor were to advocate the reverse, i.e. recognition of the State of the Indigenous Palestinians but not that of the Zionist invaders, there would be an immense outcry over “antisemitism”. 

(14). refused to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) even though this is Labor Party policy. The unspoken reason for this cowardly and terracidal failure is that Labor is a cowardly and immoral lackey of the nuclear terrorist US and UK. Ratification of the TPNW would mean that a US lackey Australia would be in violation of it. Thus TPNW “Article 1 Prohibitions. (1). Each State Party undertakes never under any circumstances to: (a). Develop, test, produce, manufacture, otherwise acquire, possess or stockpile nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices;… (e). Assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Treaty”.

(15). is a member of the all-European, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, pro-Apartheid, genocide-ignoring and holocaust-ignoring IHRA. Australia belongs to the set of  35 countries that are members of the anti-Semitic and holocaust-ignoring International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance  (IHRA). Of these 35 soiled, pro-Apartheid  countries : (1) all are European; (2) the 5 located outside Europe (Argentina, Australia, Canada, Apartheid Israel, and the US) were all created based on the genocide of the Indigenous People; (3) 9 members were part of the genocidal WW2 Nazi Germany Alliance; (4) 4 (the US, UK, France and Apartheid Israel) are nuclear terrorist states; (5) 28 belong to the 30-member nuclear-armed NATO that accepts  mass incineration of billions of men, women and children as an acceptable military strategy; (6) 14 were notably involved in the brutal conquest and genocide of Indigenous non-European people over 5 centuries; (7) only 2 (Austria and Ireland) have had the moral decency to sign and ratify the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW); and (8) all but 4 shockingly voted No to the annual UNGA Anti-Nazi Resolution in 2022 that condemns Nazism, neo-Nazism and related racist obscenities.

(16). subscribes to the false, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, pro-Apartheid, genocide-ignoring, and holocaust-ignoring IHRA Definition of anti-Semitism. The IHRA Definition of “antisemitism” lists 11 false examples of assertions (e.g. criticism of Apartheid Israel, Nazi-style Israeli policies and hugely disproportionate Zionist influence) that it regards as anti-Jewish anti-Semitic. All 11 examples can be shown to be utterly false assertions  designed to damage and defame anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish critics of genocidally racist Zionism and of Apartheid Israel and its ongoing Palestinian Genocide. Not surprisingly, the racist and mendacious IHRA Definition has been condemned by scholars around the world and by over 40 anti-racist Jewish organizations. However the IHRA has made great strides in Zionist-subverted Australia. The Australian Labor Government,  the Coalition Opposition, the Labor Government of South Australia,  the Labor Government  of Victoria, Melbourne University, and Wollongong University and  have all adopted the egregiously false, racist, anti-Semitic and genocide-ignoring IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism.

(17). voted against the annual UNGA Anti-Nazi Resolution.  The UNGA’s annual Anti-Nazi Resolution is for “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”. In 2021 the Right-Far Right Coalition Government Abstained but in 2022 the Centre-Right Australian Labor Government voted No together with 51 other soiled countries including the US and Ukraine –  all but 4 of the IHRA countries voted No to the Anti-Nazi Resolution in 2022 (Serbia and Switzerland Abstained,  Argentina voted Yes, and neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel having weaponized the WW2 Jewish Holocaust – 5-6 million Jews killed by Nazi Germany and its allies – was forced to vote Yes). This was a notable instance in which Labor was actually dirtier than the Coalition.

(18). is deeply racist and Eurocentric and will not endorse a holocaust remembrance-based recognition or  definition of racism relating to the Palestinian Genocide and some 70 genocides and holocausts other than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust, and including 30 involving Australia. The Australian Labor Government endorses the anti-Semitic, pro-Apartheid and holocaust-ignoring  IHRA Definition  of anti-Semitism. It consequently ignores  the  horrendous Australia-complicit WW2 Indian Holocaust (6-7 million Indians deliberately starved to death in 1942-1945 in Bengal, Bihar, Assam and Odisha for strategic reasons by the British with food-denying Australian complicity), the Australia-complicit WW2 Chinese Holocaust (in the 1930s in the face of worker protests Australia exported pig iron to China–raping Japan, this earning the moniker “Pig Iron Bob” for the responsible politician, conservative Robert Menzies, later White Australia’s longest serving PM). As a member of the 35-member IHRA, Zionist-subverted Australia only recognizes the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by the Nazis), ignoring  the WW2 Polish Holocaust (6 million Poles killed by the Nazis) and the WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies killed by the Nazis, including  27 million Soviet citizens). As a UK or US lackey  Australia has invaded 85 countries with 30 of these invasions being genocidal. The deeply  racist White Australia major party duopoly of Labor and the Coalition may well subscribe to the axiom that “Asia begins east of Vienna” and certainly fervently accepts the Zionist myth that Ashkenazi Jews (such as myself) come from Palestine via Spain and Western Europe. The reality as determined by historians, anthropologists, linguists and molecular biologists is otherwise – Ashkenazi Jews derive from non-Semitic Khazar converts to Judaism in southern Russia in about 800 CE. Unlike the non-Semitic Khazar-derived Ashkenazi Jews largely running Apartheid Israel, the Semitic Indigenous  Palestinians of today descend from the Jewish and non-Jewish Semitic inhabitants of Palestine at the time of the wonderful Jesus. The Palestinian Genocide has involved 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, and deprivation, 2.1 million, since the British invaded the Middle East in 1914 for oil and imperial hegemony.

(19). is anti-Arab anti-Semitic by voting against formal and public UNGA recognition on 15 May 2023 (Nakba Day) of the 75th anniversary of the 1948 Nakba, the Zionist  ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Apartheid Israel declared itself a race-based state on 14 May 1948  and then proceeded to violently expel 800,000 Indigenous Palestinians (57% of the 1.4 million Palestinian population). 15,000 Palestinians were killed in over 70 massacres, over 530 villages were emptied, and 120 mosques were eventually destroyed.

(20). is genocide-ignoring and complicit in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide by  refusing to acknowledge the 1948 Nakba. In the 1948 Nakba was associated with 800,000 Indigenous Palestinians expelled, 15,000 killed, over 530 villages ethnically cleansed and 120 mosques eventually destroyed. History ignored yields history repeated and in the 1967 Naksa 400,000 further Arabs were expelled. Presently there are some 8 million Exiled Palestinians that together with other displaced Palestinians representing about 10% of the world’s refugees. .

(21). is anti-Arab anti-Semitic by refusing to acknowledge the ongoing Palestinian Genocide  and the Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide of which it is a part.  Holocausts involve a huge number of deaths. Genocide is defined by Article 2 of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial  or religious group”.  The WW1 onwards, ongoing and Labor-complicit Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, and imposed deprivation, 2.1 million. The post-9/11 US-imposed and Labor-complicit Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide has been associated with 32 million deaths from violence, 5 million, and imposed deprivation, 27 million.

(22). is involved in the egregious intellectual abuse of Jewish children by hugely funding  Zionist schools promulgating invasion, devastation, occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine. However Labor Government funding of  genocide ideation imposed by Zionists on Jewish children is egregious intellectual child abuse and egregious anti-Jewish anti-Semitism.

(23). is party to monstrous abuse of children, mothers and women by its complicity in horrendous Israeli crimes against Occupied Palestinians who are 75% women and children. The sorely oppressed Occupied Palestinians are about 50% children and 75% women and children.

(24). is continuing an appalling Australian voting record at the UN in support of genocidally racist Apartheid Israel. With some exceptions, US lackey Australia has consistently opposed or abstained from UNGA Resolutions critical of Apartheid Israel.

(25). is anti-Jewish anti-Semitic by referring to “the Jewish state” and falsely conflating genocidally racist Apartheid Israel with all Jews, including anti-racist  Jews. Anti-racist Jews are utterly opposed to the  genocide and human rights abuse of the genocidally racist Zionists in Palestine. .

(B). Human rights and International Law in general.

The Australian Labor Government

(1). fervently supports Apartheid Israel but continues its war-like and warmongering hostility to  1.4 billion-strong and peaceful China and the 2 billon-strong and US Alliance-devastated Muslim world that both support Palestinian human rights. Labor and the Coalition back the AUKUS Alliance against peaceful China, A$368 billion for US and UK nuclear-powered submarines against China, and  US drone attacks in Libya, Somalia, Yemen , Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan targeted by the joint Australia-US Pine Gap electronic spying facility in Central Australia.

(2). rightly decries genocidal Myanmar crimes against the Rohingyas but ignores similar genocidal  crimes of anti-democratic and genocidally racist Apartheid Israel. The Rohingya Genocide has involved 800,000 Muslim Rohingya expelled and 24,000 killed by the Myanmar Government. In the 1948 Nakba, 800,000 Indigenous Palestinians were expelled (57% of the 1.4 million Palestinian population), and 15,000 Palestinians were killed in over 70 massacres. In the subsequent 1967 Naksa a further 400,000 Arabs were expelled.

(3). rightly decries Russian war crimes in its appalling invasion of Ukraine but ignores worse crimes by Apartheid Israel in Palestine and neighbouring countries, and by the US and UK. The appalling Russian invasion has led to widespread devastation and economic loss in Ukraine as well as devastating food and fuel price rises impacting billions in  the impoverished Developing World. However Labor ignores the appalling  record of invasions by Apartheid Israel in Palestine and neighbouring countries, and by the US, the US Alliance and the UK since WW2.

(4). fervently supports the State of Israel while not  even recognizing the brutally occupied and subjugated  State of Palestine. While the UN partitioned Palestine in 1947, Labor has only recognized the State of Israel and still does not recognize the State of Palestine, even though such recognition is Labor Party policy.

(5). spouts “rule of law” but fervently supports Apartheid Israel that violates numerous UNGA Resolutions, UNSC Resolutions and International Conventions. The key re4solutions and conventions violated by Apartheid Israel include (a) the UN Charter, (b) the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (UN Genocide Convention), (c) the Rights of the Child Convention (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child ), (d) the UN Refugee Convention ( UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees),  (e) the Geneva Conventions (notably the Fourth Geneva Convention), (f) the International Criminal Court, (g) the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, (h) the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid, (i) the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), (j) International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, (k) numerous UNGA and UNSC Resolutions, (l) the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), (m) the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and (n) the 1926 Slavery Convention or the Convention to Suppress the Slave Trade and Slavery.

(6). ignores the horrible reality that Occupied Palestinians are excluded from all Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Israeli Palestinians can vote for the government ruling them but are subject to 60 race-based, Nazi-style,  discriminatory laws. In contrast, Occupied Palestinians are excluded from all Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and cannot vote for the government ruling them (i.e. they are subject to egregious Apartheid).

(7). while endlessly lecturing other countries about human rights, refuses to lecture Apartheid  Israel on gross human rights abuses. As specified in B-5 above, Apartheid Israel violates numerous humanitarian International conventions.

(8). in  blindly supporting Apartheid Israel is cruelly rejecting the Convention on the Rights of the Child since about 50% of the horribly abused 15.5 million Indigenous Palestinians are children. About 50% of the horribly abused Occupied Palestinians are children and about 75% are women and children.

(9). endlessly proclaims mounting conflict between “democracies” and “non-democracies” but supports Apartheid Israel that denies democracy and self-determination for Occupied Indigenous Palestinians. The Zionist-subverted US lackey Australian Labor Government is racist and anti-democratic by conveniently declaring the major Palestinian political party Hamas to be a “terrorist organization”.

(10). is utterly unfit to hold office for rejecting the simple basic demand that all Indigenous Palestinians be immediately accorded full and equal human rights as specified by the UDHR. According Indigenous Palestinians equal and full human rights should happen immediately and is independent of “peace” negotiations, borders, flags etc. Thus Indigenous Australians were accorded full and equal human rights in 1967 but still exist in deadly and crippling poverty and disadvantage.  That the Australian Labor Government won’t even voice this basic demand to Apartheid Israel exposes its sheer moral degeneracy.

(C ). Subversion, lying, and racism.

The Australian Labor Government

(1).   massively lies by commission and omission about Palestine and the ongoing  Palestinian Genocide by Apartheid Israel. To paraphrase the present-day North Ireland police drama, Bloodlands (laden with the violent history of The  Troubles), it adheres to “This is Australia [Northern Ireland]: we don’t talk about what we don’t want to talk about”. The WW1 onwards Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence (0.1 million) and imposed deprivation (2.1 million).Each year Israel violently kills about 500 Palestinians and a further 4,000 die from imposed deprivation. Since 2000 about 10,000 Palestinians have been killed violently and about 90,000 have died from imposed deprivation. In contrast, .4,000 Zionists have been  killed by Palestinians since 1920, 40 by Gaza rockets. Indeed with an Israeli  murder rate of 20.5 per million of population per year, it is crudely estimated that about 4,000 Israelis have been murdered by fellow Israelis since 2000. A Search of the ABC (Australia’s equivalent of  the UK BBC) for “Palestinian Genocide” yields zero results.  

(2). as a cowardly, mendacious and Zionist-subverted US lackey, traitorously and cravenly  ignores US, Zionist, Apartheid Israeli and UK subversion of  Australians and Australian institutions. In June 2018, the Australian Parliament passed legislation, which criminalises foreign interference and strengthens Australia’s ability to successfully prosecute acts of espionage under the National Security Legislation Amendment (Espionage and Foreign Interference) Act 2018. According to the Australian Government: “These laws criminalise covert and deceptive or threatening activities by persons intending to interfere with Australia’s democratic systems and processes, or support the intelligence activities of a foreign government. The laws also introduce offences for preparing or planning foreign interference. At the routine lying and racist end of the foreign interference  in Australia spectrum, a Search of the ABC for “Palestinian Genocide” (over 2 million deaths, 1,200,000 expelled) yields zero results, but the “Rohingya Genocide” (800,000 expelled by Myanmar, and  24,000 killed ) is reported, as is the falsely asserted “Uighur Genocide” (zero deaths, no expulsions and with under-5 infant mortality,  avoidable mortality from deprivation and maternal mortality about 10 times lower than in US- and Australia-occupied Afghanistan). At the treason end of the “foreign interference spectrum”,  the cowardly, mendacious and Zionist-subverted and US lackey Australian Labor Government traitorously and cravenly  ignores US, Zionist, Apartheid Israeli and UK subversion of  Australians and Australian institutions, including the US- and UK-complicit 1975 coup (that removed the democratically-elected Whitlam Labor Government), and the US-approved, mining corporation-backed and pro-Zionist-led  Coup in 2010  (that removed the democratically-elected Rudd Labor Government and installed 3,000 US soldiers on Australian soil for the first time since WW2).  A huge multi-volume book has yet to be written on this enormous and traitorous perversion.

(3). trashes Australia’s international reputation by endorsing Australian membership of the anti-Semitic and holocaust-ignoring IHRA and the anti-Semitic and holocaust-ignoring IHRA Definition of anti-Semitism. Australian Labor Government surrendered to vile foreign interference against the  national interest  by endorsing membership of the  IHRA and the foreign,  Zionist-conceived,  racist, mendacious, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, pro-Apartheid, anti-Palestinian human rights, genocide-ignoring  and holocaust-ignoring IHRA Definition of anti-Semitism.

(4). rightly supports an Indigenous Australian Voice to Parliament but disgracefully supports Zionist censorship of Australian academics, students and writers protesting Israeli Apartheid and genocide of the Indigenous Palestinians. The Zionist-perverted and US lackey  Australian Labor Government funds Australian universities but will not take action over Melbourne University and Wollongong  University adopting the  neo-Nazi Zionist- and Apartheid Israel-inspired IHRA Definition of anti-Semitism and thus censoring and threatening Australian academics and  students correctly protesting the criminal, murderous and genocidal Israeli maltreatment of Indigenous Palestinians.

(5).  deliberately and knowingly ignores massive and illegal subversion of Australia by Apartheid Israel and by the Zionist-subverted UK and America. In June 2018, the Australian Parliament passed legislation, which criminalises foreign interference and strengthens our ability to successfully prosecute acts of espionage National Security Legislation Amendment (Espionage and Foreign Interference) Act 2018. These laws criminalise covert and deceptive or threatening activities by persons intending to interfere with Australia’s democratic systems and processes, or support the intelligence activities of a foreign government. The laws also introduce offences for preparing or planning foreign interference, which gives law enforcement agencies the means to investigate preparatory conduct and arrest a person before Australia’s national security is prejudiced or the national security of a foreign country is advantaged.

(6). deliberately and knowingly violates the spirit of Section 44 of the Australian Constitution that seeks to minimize foreign subversion of Australia in the interests of foreign powers. Labor is well aware of Section 44 of the Australian Constitution that some years ago excluded many dual citizen Labor, Coalition and Green MPs from office. However Labor grossly violates the spirit of Section 44 by variously ignoring, permitting and indeed supporting subversion of Australians and Australian  institutions by Apartheid Israel, the US, the UK  and their traitorous local agents.

(7). grossly lies by omission in recklessly ignoring the ongoing Palestinian Genocide in its regularly reinforced fervent support of the genocidal perpetrator Apartheid Israel. Silence is complicity and in that sense Zionist-subverted Labor is complicit in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide and the horrendous abuse of Indigenous Palestinians under Israeli Apartheid.

(8). grossly violates and undermines international law in its false and Australia-demeaning support for Apartheid Israel and hence for Apartheid and the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Zionist-subverted  Labor  is party to gross violation by Apartheid Israel of the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid and numerous other international conventions.

(9). endlessly proclaims the “rules-based order” but continues blind Australian support for US Alliance and Israeli invasions and war crimes. The US has invaded 52 countries since WW2 and China (border spats aside) has invaded none. Apartheid Israel has invaded the territory  of 13 nations and still occupies the territory of 4 (Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon).  .

(10). is  supposedly committed to “democracy” but ignores US overthrow of numerous democratically-elected governments and Israeli fake democracy that excludes most of its Palestinian Subjects. Since WW2 the US has overthrown a score of democratically-elected governments around the world, the most recent being that of Ukraine in 2014. Under “democracy-by-genocide” Apartheid Israel 73% of its 50% majority Indigenous Palestinian Subjects are excluded from voting for the government ruling them (egregious Apartheid). Labor and Coalition politicians aligned with violently anti-democracy America and Apartheid Israel are unfit for public life in a one-person-one-vote democracy like Australia.

(11). threatens Australia’s security through lying  by commission and omission about nuclear terrorist, genocidally racist Apartheid Israel. Thus, for example, cowardly and Zionist-subverted Labor and Coalition MPs lie by commission over a falsely alleged “Jewish state” (50% of Israeli Subjects are Indigenous Palestinians, 47% Jewish), and “Israeli democracy” (73%  of Apartheid Israel’s Indigenous Subjects are not permitted to vote for the government ruling them). There is massive Labor lying by omission over the horrendous  subjugation of Indigenous Palestinians.

(12). permits dual Australian-Israeli citizens to participate in criminality, war and terrorism in the Middle East. While Arab Australians participating as Arabs or Muslims in US-backed civil wars in the Middle East are subject to massive custodial punishment in Australia, dual Australian-Israeli citizens can kill and maim the Indigenous people of Palestine and the Middle East with impunity.

(13). permits dual Australian-Israeli citizens to participate in criminality and terrorism against Australians and their relatives.  No dual Australian-Israeli citizens have been arraigned for the shooting, tasering, kidnapping , robbing and illegal imprisonment of Australian citizens in International waters, and none have been extradited and  arraigned for robbing, wounding and killing the relatives of Australian citizens.

(14). is a knowing  accessory to illegal, Apartheid  Israel-benefiting and Australia-targeted US drone attacks  on Muslim countries  from Somalia and Yemen to Afghanistan and Pakistan. The joint Australia-US electronic spying base at Pine Gap in Central Australia is vital for US nuclear terrorism, and targets illegal US drone strikes from Africa to South Asia.

(15). is unfit for office by supporting the International Law-recognized crime of Apartheid. Those supporting Apartheid Israel and hence the utterly vile crime Apartheid are utterly unfit for public life in a one-person-one-state democracy like Australia.

(D). Sanctions.

The Australian Labor Government

(1). despite its complicity in nuclear terrorism,  applies autonomous sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear weapons but not against 8 other nuclear weapons countries including neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT): “Australia implements UNSC sanctions by incorporating them into Australian law. In addition, since 2006 Australia has imposed autonomous sanctions in relation to the DPRK, which complement the UNSC sanctions. The autonomous sanctions were imposed in response to Australia’s concerns about the nature of the DPRK’s nuclear, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and proliferation programs”

(2). despite its complicity in US and UK nuclear terrorism,  applies sanctions against nuclear-armed North Korea and non-nuclear weapons-possessing and Palestine-supporting Iran but not against nuclear-armed US, UK, France, Apartheid Israel, Pakistan, India and China.  The State of Palestine, is rejected and highly abusively occupied by Apartheid Israel. Unlike Apartheid Israel, the State of Palestine does not have an army, air force, navy, arms industry, nuclear weapons  and nuclear-armed submarines, but has been  made a nuclear target through Israeli nuclear terrorism. Nuclear weapons existentially threaten Humanity and the Biosphere.

(3).  as a US lackey still imposes deadly sanctions on Palestine’s Arab neighbour, Palestine-supporting Iraq, variously genocidally ravaged by the UK, US and Australia over the last century. The British invaded Iraq for oil in 1914 and Australians assisted in the subjugation of the  Iraqis for decades. Iraqi deaths from violence and deprivation totalled 9 million (1914 onwards), 5 million (1990 onwards), and 2.8 million (2003 onwards). No Australian politicians have been officially exposed , let alone indicted, for war crimes in violation of the UN Charter (the illegal invasion in 2003) and Articles 55 and 56 of the Fourth Geneva Convention (failure of the Occupier to provide life-sustaining food and medical requisites to the conquered Subjects “to the fullest extent of the means available to it”).

(4). as a US lackey still imposes deadly sanctions on Palestine’s occupation- and war-devastated Arab neighbour, Palestine-supporting Lebanon. In 1914 he British and French set about destroying the 4 century Ottoman Caliphate (1517-1926) with the invasion of the Middle East (1914) and the Sykes-Picot Agreement that divided the Middle East between Britain and France (1916). Britain got Palestine, Jordan and Iraq, while the French got Lebanon and Syria. Apartheid Israel invaded and occupied much of Lebanon in 1978-2000, with Israeli-backed Christian Falangists killing 3,000 Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila Massacre in 1983. Lebanon  has gone from being a prosperous country to present economic ruin under US and Australian sanctions. Australia-backed Apartheid Israel still illegally occupies part of Lebanon. There are 250,000 Lebanese Australians, including  90,000 born in Lebanon, or about 1% of the Australian population – if they knew their history and Australia’s role in it they could not vote 1 for  either anti-Arab anti-Semitic Labor or  the anti-Arab anti-Semitic  Coalition.

(5). as a US lackey still applies sanctions against Palestine’s Arab neighbour, war-devastated and now earthquake-devastated Syria, that is also subject to partial military rule by Apartheid Israel, Turkey, US-backed Kurds, the US, US-backed Sunni Muslim rebels, and remaining US-complicit  ISIS insurgents. Anti-Arab anti-Semitic, pro-Apartheid and US lackey Australia supports Israeli and US devastation and dismemberment  of Syria that is also host to a huge number of Palestinian refugees.

(6). as a US lackey imposes sanctions on Russia and on to the war-devastated, substantially Russian-speaking and Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine, namely the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, as well as Crimea, and Sevastopol. The post-1990 anti-Russian US machinations in Eastern Europe led to the neo-Nazi-backed overthrow of the democratically-elected and sensibly pro-Russian Government in the 2014 US-backed coup. The US sabotaged the 2014 Minsk Agreement and peace negotiations, this resulting eventually in the US-provoked but war criminal Russian invasion in 2022 that has devastated Ukraine, and severely economically impacted the world. However  the Australian Labor Government won’t apply sanctions to other war criminal invaders, notably serial invaders America and Palestine-violating Apartheid Israel.

(7). as a US lackey imposes sanctions on a range of countries (including Palestine) that the US does not like for ostensible “rules-based order ” or “human rights” reasons and which are associated with horrendous  infant mortality and avoidable mortality from deprivation. The countries variously subject to sanctions by the Zionist-subverted and US lackey Australian Labor Government [1] are as follows together with a “relative per capita under-5 infant mortality score”  (“country under-5 infant mortality in 2020 as a percentage of population” divided by that of Japan, the country with the lowest per capita infant mortality): Afghanistan (118.5), Central African Republic (276.0), Democratic Republic of the Congo (266.9), Democratic Republic of Koreas aka North Korea (15.8), Guinea Bissau (182.0), Iran (16.8), Iraq (52.3), Lebanon (12.3), Libya (14.8), Mali (276.1), Myanmar (53.5), Palestine (37.7), Russia  (5.4), Serbia (3.5), Somalia (314.1), Sudan (133.7), South Sudan (226.9), Syria (24.6), Ukraine (5.0), Yemen (110.8), and Zimbabwe (96.8). ”Avoidable mortality from deprivation” is about 1.4 times the “under-5 infant mortality” and thus these infant mortality scores numerically equate with “country avoidable mortality from deprivation in 2020”divided by that of Japan. The relative scores are 1.0 for Japan , 3.0 for Australia, and 11.5 for Indigenous Australia. Relative to that in best-case Japan, under-5 infant mortality and avoidable mortality from deprivation are 99.6% avoidable in the Central African Republic and 66.7% avoidable in rich Australia.

(8). has a prime loyalty to the rich, for all its rhetoric otherwise and its name,  and imposes horrible circumstances on the poor and disadvantaged of Australia, including Arab, Muslim, and Palestinian Australians, and refugee subjects of Australia. In the 2019-2020 financial year 13.4% of Australians (3,319,000 people) and 16.6% of children (761,000 children) lived in poverty i.e. below the poverty line. High inflation, decreasing real wages, high rent, and low availability of rental accommodation have pushed half the population into stressful circumstances. The previous Coalition Government increased the Gross National Debt to about A$1 trillion in significant part by disproportionately lavishing billions on the rich and  the “real people”  rendered unemployed by COVID-19 Lockdown measures. Despite bits of ameliorating measures, the Australian  Labor Government intends to spend A$250 billion on tax breaks for the rich, and about A$368 billion (and very likely much more) on 7 variously US or UK nuclear-powered submarines that lock Australians into genocidal UK and US militarism and nuclear terrorism for decades.

(9). imposes variously deadly sanctions on other countries (that are typically very poor) but complains bitterly at limited trade sanctions imposed by China that was annoyed by persistent public Australian hostility in 14 areas. This double standard by Labor derives from entrenched Australian racism (including Sinophobia)  and a perceived duty to act as a US lackey.

(10). blindly supports the US that has an appalling record of applying deadly sanctions, regime change, invading, devastating and killing. The US applies sanctions to about 25 countries, has invaded 52 countries since WW2, and has 800 bases in about 70 countries. The US has proscribed numerous organization  as “terrorists” including  the major Palestinian political party Hamas and 4 other Palestinian organizations. In stark contrast the US is number one in the world for supporting nuclear terrorist and genocidally racist Apartheid Israel.

(E). Racism, militarism,  war and existential nuclear and climate  threats to Australia, Palestine and the world.

The Australian Labor Government

(1). is complicit in US, UK, French and Israeli nuclear terrorism that existentially threaten Palestine and the World.  As an ally of the UK and US under the AUKUS Agreement  Australia is intimately linked with UK and US nuclear terrorism. Australian played important role in the testing of UK nuclear weapons and delivery systems. Australia is deeply involved in US nuclear strategy (as well in illegal and war criminal US global drone strikes) through the Pine Gap spying base in Central Australia,. As a uranium producer and a member of AUKUS Australia is inevitably complicit in French nuclear terrorism (France is allied to the US and UK via NATO) and with Israeli nuclear terrorism (the US and Apartheid Israel are intimately connected diplomatically, militarily and espionage-wise, indeed the US provides Apartheid Israel with raw intelligence on Australians).

(2). is committed to the serial war criminal and genocidally racist US Alliance that intimately includes serial war criminal,  genocidally racist and Palestine-subjugating Apartheid Israel. Apart from inevitable border spats, most countries in the world have not invaded other countries. Costa Rica does not even have an army. In stark contrast, the US has invaded 72 countries (52 since WW2), has committed 469 invasions from 1798 onwards, committed 251 invasions since 1991,  and has 800 military bases in over 70 countries. The US actively spies on and subverts all countries, deceives, betrays and spies on  its craven ally Australia, and indeed supplies raw intelligence on Australians to Apartheid Israel.

(3). permits university,  corporate  and other secret military  co-research with serial war criminal and genocidally violent  Apartheid Israel that helps suppression of Indigenous Palestinians. Numerous Australian universities are involved in such despicable research that violates the core academic ethos of Kindness and Truth (war, killing and subjugation are not Kindness, and secrecy is not Truth –  lying  by omission is far, far worse than repugnant lying by commission because the latter can at least can permit public refutation and public debate.

(4). is hostile and warlike towards to peaceful China which strongly supports Palestinian human rights. Border spats aside, China has only invaded and incorporated 2 entities in the last 700 years, namely Tibet (13th century) and Xin Jiang (18th century).

(5). takes no action on the massive  subversion of Australians and Australian institutions  by Apartheid Israel. Despite having powerful legislation  to protect Australia from foreign interference, Zionist-subverted and US lackey Labor simply will not act against blatant political interference from Apartheid Israel and the US who have carte blanche to do what they like. In the time of Queen Elizabeth I such foreign agents and their supporters were tortured, hung, drawn and quartered with their heads stuck on pikes as a public warning. We live in gentler times and the least one could reasonably expect today is that such people are simply exposed, but this will not happen under cowardly and traitorous Labor, and indeed truth-telling experts are maligned as against the national interest.

(6). acts in  in the interests of neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel and the US to  violate the spirit of Section 44 of the Constitution which aims to minimize foreign subversion. Section 44 examples foreign associations deemed inimical to Australia’s  national interests but pro-Zionist and US lackey Labor permits entrenched violation of the spirit of Section 44.

(7). takes no action over Palestinian-subjugating Apartheid Israeli state terrorism and its agents acting against Australians and Australian institutions at home. Thus, to give just one example,  Zionists have had success in getting Australia’s 2 top universities to falsely defame their students as alleged “anti-Semites” for criticizing the crimes of Apartheid Israel.

(8). takes no action on perpetrators of Israeli crimes against Australians abroad. No Israelis or indeed Israeli Australians have been charged, extradited or arrested  over the large-scale forging of Australian passports, or the kidnapping, wounding, killing and illegal imprisonment of  Australians.

(9). as a US lackey violates the human rights of law-abiding but imprisoned Australian citizens wanted by the serial war criminal Americans but ignores Israeli crimes against Australians. Thus Labor goes along with the incarceration and threat to journalist hero Julian Assange (for his truth telling about US war crimes) and Daniel Duggan (who has broken no Australian laws but trained Chinese pilots). Conversely,  Apartheid Israel, the US and their Australian agents have carte blanche under Labor to defame, bully, intimidate, censor and deceive Australians and Australian institutions.

(10). is anti-Jewish anti-Semitic and fails to protect Australian anti-racist Jews grossly and falsely defamed by Zionist agents of Apartheid Israel. Labor is morally repugnant by falsely defaming anti-racist  Jewish critics of the horrendous  crimes of Apartheid Israel as “anti-Semites”.

(11). is anti-Arab anti-Semitic by failing to protect Australian anti-racist Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims  rightly critical of Israeli apartheid and grossly, falsely and absurdly defamed as “anti-Semites” by Zionist agents of Apartheid Israel. Racism, anti-Jewish anti-Semitism and anti-Arab anti-Semitism are repugnant.

(12). as an IHRA adherent is anti-Jewish anti-Semitic and anti-Arab anti-Semitic by falsely defaming anti-racist Jews, Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims as anti-Semitic. Racism is repugnant, and anti-Jewish anti-Semitism and anti-Arab anti-Semitism equally repugnant.

(13). as an IHRA adherent is obscenely genocide-ignoring and holocaust-ignoring. To Zionist-subverted Labor there is only 1 holocaust , the WW2 Jewish Holocaust  (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or imposed deprivation by the Nazis). However this ignores some 70 genocides and holocausts, including the following WW2 atrocities (deaths from violence and imposed deprivation in brackets): the WW2 European Holocaust (30 million), the WW2 Polish Holocaust (6 million), the WW2 Indian Holocaust (6-7 million), and the WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35-40 million).

(14). as a pro-Israeli government almost certainly failed to warn Palestinian Australians and other Australians in Gaza about a forthcoming bombing of Gaza in 2022. The Australian Labor PM phoned to congratulate the newly-elected Israeli PM the night before this latest bombing of Gaza but was he told of the planned bombing and did he warn Australian citizens in Gaza?

(15). violates the spirit and letter of Australia’s Foreign Interference laws by not exposing or discouraging free trips of Australian politicians and journalists  to Australia-subverting Apartheid Israel. Cowardly Labor turns a blind eye to this blatant foreign subversion of  Australian politicians and journalists.

(16). permits massive military sales and corporate and academic military research cooperation with an Apartheid Israel that oppresses Palestinians and “pre-tests” weapons on Palestinians and other Arab populations. Inaction by Labor and the Coalition over this intimacy with genocidal evil diminishes the moral standing of Australia and its universities. It is also extremely costly – thus, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) was forced to remove hugely expensive, multi-billion-dollar  Israeli  Elbit Systems add-ons from its hardware over fear of Israeli spying through backdooring.

(17). ignores gross Israeli human rights violations through  supporting increased diplomatic, trade, and military links with Apartheid Israel. Silence is complicity and this Labor cowardice dirties Australia’s international reputation.

(18). through fervently supporting an endlessly war-mongering and nuclear-armed US and US Alliance (US, UK, France and Apartheid Israel) has made Palestinians and Australians, including Palestinian Australians, a prime nuclear  target. In any steadily escalating nuclear exchange Australia will be hit before any US cities are hit.

(19). has permitted  6 nuclear weapons-capable B-52 bombers to be based in Australia and adumbrates nuclear-armed nuclear warship visits and more US Marines based in Australia, involving Australia in US, UK, French and Israeli nuclear terrorism. The big powers (the US, Russia, China, India, UK, France and Pakistan) are trapped in a nuclear stand-off and North Korea has been subject to genocidal US violence and threat  for over 70 years (28% of its population was killed by US bombing in the Korean War). The world should insist that Apartheid Israel,, like Apartheid South Africa, should surrender  its nuclear weapons. Australia and Palestine should not and do not have to be nuclear targets.

(20). through blind support for AUKUS and A$368 billion- plus nuclear-powered US and UK submarines, has ceded sovereignty to serial war criminal America and threatens Australia, as well as Palestine and its Arab and Muslim confreres.  Cowardly, Zionist-subverted and US lackey Labor has quasi-irreversibly surrendered agency to the US and is under great threat from the US. When the reformist Whitlam Labor Government upset the Americans by merely querying  the Pine Gap base  and Australia’s covert role in the 1973 Chile Coup, it was removed in a US- and UK-backed coup on 11 November 1975.

(21). through fervent support of the US and Apartheid Israel ignores Australian involvement in 8 US-backed covert coups with 3 involving  Palestine-subjugating Apartheid Israel. Australians were involved in  8 US-backed covert coups, specifically Laos (1960), Cambodia (1970), Chile (1973), Australia (1975), Fiji (1987, 2000) and Australia (2010), with the latter 3 involving Apartheid Israel.

(22). through its blind support for US and UK militarism via AUKUS threatens all its South East Asia and Pacific neighbours, and especially Indonesia, the biggest Muslim democracy in the world and a major supporter of Palestinian human rights. Indonesia (population 276 million) has no nuclear submarines but Australia (population 26 million) is spending A$368 billion to acquire 7 and become a major threat to South East Asia and the Indo-Pacific.

(23). through its fervent pro-Zionism has soiled Australia’s international reputation, making Australia complicit in the awful crimes of US and Israeli state terrorism and thereby endangering Palestinians and Australians, including  Palestinian, Arab and Muslim  Australians. Cowardly, racist, Zionist-subverted and US lackey Labor has surrendered Australian  sovereignty  to Zionist-subverted America, thereby threatening its neighbours, Palestine and indeed the whole world.

(24). ignores Australian violation of all Indo-Pacific countries (including Palestine). Mendacious Labor ignores gross Australian violation of all Indo-Pacific countries variously occurring through military action as a UK or US lackey, covert regime change in 8 countries, and climate change through Australiabeing among world leaders in climate criminality. Under climate criminal Labor  about 100 new coal and gas projects are set to be approved.

(25). The Australian Labor Government grossly violates the fundamental human ethos of Kindness and Truth.  Labor spurns this core ethos by violating all Indo-Pacific Countries, threatening the world with nuclear terrorism and climate change, violating the sorely oppressed Palestinians in 85 ways as set out here and above, and then egregiously lying about it to the extent that it probably believes in many of its own lies.

Conclusion. Australia has a world’s best compulsory and preferential voting system (for a valid vote one must mark all candidates numerically in order of preference  – if  a candidate fails to get 50% of the vote, the winner is determined by taking preferences into account). Labor’s sole merit is that it is arguably better than the utterly appalling, corrupt, incompetent, climate criminal, war criminal, racist and mendacious Coalition. Enough is enough. Faced with escalating existential threats from nuclear weapons and climate change, decent, anti-racist  Australians  will put the Coalition last and Labor second last – they will find it impossible to vote 1 for either Labor or the Coalition. The racist, mendacious, climate criminal, war criminal, Zionist-subverted, traitorous, and  US lackey Australian Labor Government has betrayed the Labor Party, Australia and humanity, and is utterly unfit for public office and public life.
