59 Countries Invite Global Sanctions By Backing Apartheid Israel’s Genocidal Gaza Massacre

United Nations UN General Assembly

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) passed a resolution on 27 October 2023 calling for an immediate humanitarian truce between Israel and Hamas and demanding aid access to Gaza. A total of 120 decent pro-Humanity countries voted Yes for the resolution. However 14 indecent and pro-Apartheid countries voted No and  45 cowardly, unprincipled and pro-Apartheid countries Abstained, this inviting global Sanctions as were successfully applied to Apartheid South Africa.

The UN Press Release stated in part (27 October 2023): “Calling for an immediate and sustained humanitarian truce leading to a cessation of hostilities, the General Assembly today demanded the unhindered provision of essential aid to civilians throughout the Gaza Strip, as the body continued its emergency session on the situation in the Middle East. The Assembly also failed to unequivocally reject and condemn the terrorist attacks by Hamas that took place in Israel starting on 7 October. By a recorded vote of 120 in favour to 14 against, with 45 abstentions, the Assembly adopted the resolution titled “Protection of civilians and upholding legal and humanitarian obligations” (document A/ES-10/L.25), demanding that all parties immediately and fully comply with their obligations under international law, including international humanitarian law” [1].

As of 3 November  2023 the world is witnessing an ongoing Palestinian Genocide in the latest utterly unforgivable and genocidal Gaza Massacre by neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel that is fervently backed by the serial war criminal and genocidally racist US and US Alliance.

In the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre of unarmed Africans by Apartheid South African police a total of 69 people were killed and 180 wounded [3]. This atrocity fuelled international outrage and near-comprehensive global adoption of boycotts  against neo-Nazi Apartheid South Africa. UK- and US-backed  Apartheid Israel secretly supported Apartheid South Africa to the extent of enabling neo-Nazi Apartheid South Africa to gain several nuclear weapons and join Apartheid Israel in the nuclear weapons club. The international Boycott  Apartheid  campaign finally succeeded with the fall of neo-Nazi Apartheid, equal human rights for all South Africans, and the democratic election in 1994 of a government led by Nelson Mandela.

As of 3 November 2023, Palestinian deaths in the latest and most dreadful Gaza Massacre total about 11,000 killed in Gaza or buried in rubble, and 1,500 Palestinian fighters killed in Israel. 1,400 Israelis (84% regular military, military conscripts and military reservists) were killed in the Palestinian outbreak from the Gaza Concentration Camp. The death toll of Occupied Palestinians in Gaza (half of them now homeless)  may rise enormously due to the near-total  and genocidal Israeli ban on water, food, medicine, medical requisites, electricity and fuel for the besieged and densely populated Gaza enclave.

The World responded overwhelmingly with condemnation, Sanctions and Boycotts to the 1950 Sharpeville Massacre in which 69 Africans were killed, but in response to the latest Gaza Massacre in which about 11,000 Palestinians have been killed so far in the Gaza Concentration Camp or buried in rubble (a nearly 160 times greater atrocity) so far the World has substantively acted by overwhelmingly supporting a UNGA Resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire and an end to the Gaza Massacre by an uncontrolled, genocidally racist, neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel. However while 120 countries supported the Ceasefire Resolution, 59 countries rejected the Resolution and of these 34 (58%) were rich European countries.

If it is to recover unanimity in opposing neo-Nazi Apartheid the World needs to know about the background of (A) the 14 morally degenerate pro-Apartheid countries voting No,  (B) the 45 cowardly and unprincipled countries Abstaining, and (C) the 120 countries decently voting Yes for a Ceasefire and an end to the Gaza Massacre. This is summarized below.

(A). 14 countries voting No: Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Fiji, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, United States.

8 of these 14 countries have appalling records of genocide in living memory i.e. from WW2 onwards, namely Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, Paraguay, and the United States. Further, as a consequence of US-, Australia- and Apartheid  Israel-complicit but so fortunately bloodless coups in 1987 and 2000 about 100,000 Indo-Fijians (ethnic Indians) left Fiji. The UNGA votes of Fiji  and 5 other poor Pacific nations, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, and Tonga are readily bought by the US and Apartheid Israel.  

Austria, Croatia, and Hungary. Austria, Croatia, and Hungary were allied with Nazi Germany in WW2  and participated in the following atrocities (deaths from violence and deprivation in brackets) the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million), Polish Holocaust (6 million), the Soviet Holocaust (27 million), the Roma Holocaust (1 million Roma and Sinti killed), and the WW2 European  Holocaust (30 million Slavs, Jews, Roma and Sinti killed). Jews of these countries killed in  WW2  totalled 60,000-65,000 out of the 70,000 pre-WW2 Jewish population (Austria), 58,000-60,000 out of 70,000 pre-WW2 (Yugoslavia, with the Croatian Ustase  the major perpetrator of Nazi atrocities), and 200,000 out of the 710,000 pre-WW2 (Hungary) [4-7]. Croatia was also complicit in the 1992-1995 Bosnian Genocide (200,000 killed) [7] and in the 2001-2021 Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide (7 million Afghan deaths from violence and deprivation) [7, 9]. Hungary was involved in both the  Iraqi Holocaust (2.7 million Iraqi deaths from violence and deprivation, 2003-2011) and the Afghan Holocaust (7 million Afghan deaths from violence and deprivation in 2001-2021) [7, 9-12].

Czechia.  The Sudetenland part of Czechoslovakia was invaded by Nazi Germany in 1938 and thence in 1939 all of Czechoslovakia was seized. However in 1945 about  3 million ethnic Germans were expelled from Czechoslovakia, this mass population expulsion being  accompanied by huge suffering and  deadly violence [7, 8]. Czechia and Slovakia separated in 1993 (Slovakia Abstained from the UNGA vote). Czechia joined the genocidal US Coalition in Iraq in 2003 (2.7 million deaths from violence and deprivation in the 2003-2011 Iraqi Holocaust and Iraqi Genocide) and in Afghanistan (7 million Afghan deaths from violence and deprivation in the 2001-2021 Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide) [7, 9-12].

Fiji. In 1987 Indian Fijians (Indo-Fijians) were about 50% of the Fiji population when an Indian-Indigenous Fiji Labour Party Government under ethnic Fijian medical doctor Dr Timoci Bavadra was elected on a platform of multiracial amity and a nuclear-free Pacific. The  Indo-Fijians descend from Indian indentured labour (“5-year slaves”) brought to Fiji in 1879-1916 by the British from India  to work on British and Australian sugar cane plantations (the last slaves were released in 1920). The multi-racial Fiji Labour Government was elected in 1987 but was soon afterwards overthrown in a US-, Australia- and Apartheid Israel-complicit coup led by US-linked Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka who conducted a second coup later that year (the Australian Labor PM at the time was “US asset” Bob Hawke). After a return to  democracy in 1999 and  the election of a multi-racial Fiji Labour Party Government lead by Indian Mahendra Chaudhry, this democratically-elected government was removed in a further US-, Australia- and Apartheid Israel-complicit coup  in 2000 led by an Australian Fijian George Speight. About 100,000 Indo-Fijians left Fiji as a result of these racism-based but bloodless coups. A 4th  coup in 2006 led by ethnic Fijian army leader  Commodore Frank Bainimarama was to protect the Indians (the commercial core of the Fiji economy) and he was elected PM after democracy was restored in 2006 [7, 13-22]. “US asset” Sitiveni Rabuka was elected PM in 2022 and ordered a Fiji No vote to the UNGA ceasefire resolution in October 2023.

Guatemala.  In 1954 US-backed invasion  from Honduras resulted in military rule, repression and guerrilla insurgency. In the period 1960-1996 there was extreme repression by the US-backed and Israeli-armed government, popular resistance and civil war with 0.1 million killed violently and 1.0 million refugees in the Guatemalan Mayan Indian Genocide. Avoidable deaths from deprivation in the period 1960-1996 totalled 1.9 million [7]. 

Paraguay. Paraguay has an awful history of genocide of the indigenous inhabitants by the genocidal Spanish colonizers from the 16th century to the late 20th century. Between 1956 and 1989 under US-backed dictator  General Alfredo Stroessner, the indigenous population was subject to gross human rights abuse and massive ethnic cleansing of their  land for cattle and timber interests, with more land seized than at any other time [7, 23]. 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation totalled 0.6 million [7].

Apartheid Israel. In 3000-2000 BCE Semitic Canaanites settled what has been called Palestine (with variants) for about 3,000 years. Genocidally racist and neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel has an appalling record of violent occupation, subjugation and ethnic cleansing of the Indigenous Palestinians. The century-long Palestinian Genocide dates back to British invasion of the Middle East in 1914 for oil and imperial hegemony. A WW1 Palestinian famine killed 0.1 million Palestinians. 2 days after the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) defeated the Turks at Beersheba, the British via the 2 November 2017 Balfour Declaration to Zionist Lord Rothschild granted the ancient land of Palestine to the genocidal Zionists as a “national home for the Jewish people”. The Surafend Massacre of 100 Palestinians by ANZAC soldiers on 10 December 1918 was the first mass killing of Palestinians in the century-long  Palestinian Genocide that has been associated with 0.1 million violent deaths and 2 million avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation. In 1948 the British-armed and British-trained neo-Nazi Zionists founded the State of Israel by seizing 78% of Palestine and expelling 0.8 million Palestinians (57% of the Indigenous Palestinian population), with this foundational genocide (the 1948 Nakba or Catastrophe) being associated with 76 massacres, 15,000 Palestinians killed, 530 villages ethnically cleansed and over 100 mosques eventually destroyed. In 1967 Apartheid Israel attacked all of it neighbours plus an unarmed US naval vessel the USS Liberty, seizing territory of all of its neighbours (Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria), and expelling a further 0.4 million Arabs in the Naksa (Setback). Of about 15 million mostly impoverished Palestinians today there are 7 million Exiled Palestinians (illegally prevented from returning to their homes and 5,000-year homeland), 7.6 million Occupied Palestinians (deprived of all the human rights set out in the 30 Articles of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, highly abusively imprisoned under military rule for 56 years, and unable to vote for the government ruling them i.e. subject to egregious Apartheid), and 2 million Israeli Palestinians  (able to vote albeit as Third Class citizens under 60 Nazi-style, race-based discriminatory laws). The per capita GDP is a deadly $1,000 (Gaza), a deadly $3,500 (the whole Occupied Palestinian Territories) and $55,500 (neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel) [7, 9, 12, 25-45].   

United States. The US is a horrendous serial invader of other countries and has invaded 72 countries (52 since WW2 and many repeatedly), has committed 469 invasions from 1798 onwards, has committed 251 invasions since 1991, and has 800 military bases in over 70 countries [ 7-12, 47-56]. The most horrendous of these hundreds of US invasions in the post-WW2 era devastated the following countries in particular (dates and deaths from violence and war-imposed deprivation in brackets): Korea (1950-1953, 5.2 million), Iraq (1990-2011, 4.7 million), and Afghanistan (2001-2021, 7 million). Post-1950 US Asian wars have been associated with 40 million Asian deaths from violence and imposed deprivation [7, 9-12].  An estimated 32 million Muslims have died from violence, 5 million, and from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9/11 false flag atrocity that killed about 3,000 innocent Americans [55, 56]. The carnage is actually much worse than this. Thus about 1.5 million Americans die preventably each year from “life-style choice” and “political choice” reasons and 33 million have died thus since 2001. The long-term accrual cost of the War on Terror has been about $6 trillion [57] and thus the Zionist-subverted US Government  has spent this huge amount on killing over 30 million Muslims abroad rather than on trying  to keep over 30 million Americans alive at home [57-61].  

(B). Abstained (45): Albania, Australia, Bulgaria, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Ethiopia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Haiti, Iceland, India, Iraq, Italy,  Japan, Kiribati, Latvia, Lithuania, Monaco, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Palau, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Republic of Korea (South Korea), Republic of Moldova, Romania. San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, South Sudan, Sweden, Tunisia, Tuvalu, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Vanuatu,  Zambia.

(i). European versus  non-European Abstainers. Of the 45 countries Abstaining and hence despicably refusing to support the UNGA call for a Ceasefire, 28 are ethnically largely European, of which 25 are located in Europe and 3 (Australia, Canada and Uruguay) are located outside Europe. 17 of the Abstainers are non-European.

Of the 28 largely ethnically European countries Abstaining, 20 belong to the 35 member,  all-European, egregiously racist, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, anti-Arab and anti-Semitic, holocaust-ignoring and holocaust-denying  International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) (Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Sweden, United Kingdom), as do the 6 largely European No voting countries (Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Hungary, Israel, and the United States).

(ii). International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) members. Of the 35 members of the all-European and anti-Semitic International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), 20 Abstained, 6 voted No, and only 9 voted Yes i.e. 26 IHRA members voted against the UNGA Resolution for a Ceasefire in the ongoing Gaza Massacre of a Semitic people, the Occupied Palestinians. This result is in keeping with the  deeply racist, anti-Jewish anti-Semitic, anti-Arab anti-Semitic,  holocaust-ignoring and holocaust-denying stance of the IHRA that has been condemned by over 40 anti-racist Jewish organizations [62-70].

The IHRA Definition  of anti-Semitism is anti-Jewish anti-Semitic and anti-Arab anti-Semitic  (by falsely defaming anti-racist Jewish, Palestinian, Arab and Muslim critics of Apartheid Israel), and  holocaust denying by ignoring all WW2 holocausts other than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by Nazi Germany and its allies through  violence and deprivation),  namely (people killed by violence and deprivation in brackets) the Polish Holocaust (6 million Poles killed by Nazi Germany), the WW2 Soviet Holocaust (27 million Soviet citizens killed), the WW2  European Holocaust (30 million Slavs, Jews and Roma killed), the WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35-40 million Chinese killed under the Japanese, 1937-1945), and the WW2 Bengali Holocaust (WW2 Indian Holocaust, WW2 Bengal Famine; 6-7 million Indians deliberately starved to death for strategic reasons in Bengal, Odisha, Assam, and Bihar by the British with food-denying Australian complicity) [62-70].

Of the 35 members of the deeply racist IHRA: (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 3 shockingly voted No to the annual  UNGA Anti-Nazi Resolution in 2022 that  condemns Nazism, neo-Nazism and related racist obscenities [62].

(iii). Non-European Abstainers. One can only speculate about why 17 non-European nations Abstained over the mass murder of non-European Occupied Palestinians by neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel. Thus 5 are small, impoverished tropical island states (Cabo Verde, Haiti, Kiribati, Palau, and  Tuvalu) and susceptible  to financial pressure from the US and Apartheid Israel. India was a world leader against  Apartheid for decades but  in recent years has become close to Apartheid Israel with a commonality of Islamophobia, fascism, racism,  and  bigotry. Cameroon is close to Apartheid Israel and is very unusual in being  an African country supporting Apartheid Israel (and hence Apartheid) and that does not recognize the State of Palestine [71]. Japan and South Korea are closely tied militarily to the US that fervently backs Apartheid Israel. 

Of the 17 non-European countries Abstaining and the 8 non-European countries voting No (25 in all), only 2 are rich (Japan and South Korea), and one can well understand how these 23  poor  Abstaining or No-voting countries would be very sensitive and vulnerable to threats from rich neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel and rich pro-Apartheid America.

 (C). Yes voters (120): Afghanistan, Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Central African Republic, Chad, Chile, China, Colombia, Comoros, Costa Rica, Cote d’Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire),  Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, France, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Lesotho, Libya, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Malta, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Mongolia, Montenegro, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Suriname, Switzerland, Syria, Tajikistan, Thailand, East Timor,  Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Republic of Tanzania, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen, Zimbabwe.

Of the 120 countries that decently voted Yes for Cessation of the mass murder of Occupied Palestinians in Gaza, 105 were non-European and, like the Palestinians, had variously suffered from European colonialism and imperialism [7]. Only 15 of the Yes voters were predominantly European, namely Andorra, Argentina, Armenia, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, France, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, and Switzerland, but of these only

6 were involved in genocidal colonialism and imperialism, namely Argentina, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Russia, and Spain [7].

As the Developing World is increasingly moving  towards financial and economic independence from the US and the US Alliance (notably led by the BRICS nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) it is notable that large-population countries voting Yes included (population in millions, M, in brackets) Afghanistan (40 M), Algeria (44 M), Argentina (46 M), Bangladesh (169 M), Brazil (214 M), China (1,412 M), Democratic Republic of the Congo (96M), Egypt (109 M),France (68 M), Ghana (34 M), Indonesia (274 M), Iran (88 M), Kenya (53 M), Malaysia (34 M), Mexico (127 M), Morocco (37 M),  Mozambique (32 M), Myanmar (54 M), Nigeria (213 M), Pakistan (231 M), Russia (143M), Saudi Arabia (36 M), South Africa (59 M), Spain (47 M), Sudan (46 M),  Tanzania (64 M), Thailand (72 M),Turkiye (85 M), Uganda (46 M), Uzbekistan (35 M), and Vietnam (97 M).  

Particularly notable are the major Yes-voting  countries with populations of over 100 million,, namely Bangladesh (169 M),  Brazil (214 M), China (1,412 M), Egypt (109 M), Indonesia (274 M), Mexico (127 M), Nigeria (213 M), Pakistan (231 M) and Russia (143M).

 Final comments and conclusions.

As of Wednesday 1 November 2023, according to the  Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, Occupied Palestinian deaths in Gaza total 8,796, this including 3,648 children and 2,290 women, with 22,219 other people injured, and  2,030 people  trapped under the rubble of Gaza. Israeli forces have targeted 58 health care facilities in Gaza, with 132 medics dead,  25 ambulances destroyed, and 58 hospitals and 32 primary care centres forced out of service due to bombing and fuel shortage [72].  In addition 1,500 Palestinian fighters who escaped the Gaza Concentration Camp on 7 October were killed while 1,400 Israelis were killed. Of the 1,400  Israeli dead,  84.2%  ( 1,179) were 18-39 year old military regulars, conscripts and reservists, 15.8% (221 ) were under 18 and 40 and over, 13.3% (186) were 40 and over (most with military service), and 2.5% (35) were children [73].

The horrendous disproportionality of neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel’s genocidal Gaza  Massacre is simply expressed by Occupied/Occupier Death Ratios: thus (8,796 deaths in Gaza + 1,500 Palestinian fighters killed in Israel + 2,030 under the Gaza rubble) / 1,400 Israelis = 12,326 Occupied Palestinians/1,400 Israelis = 8.8 as compared to the Occupied/Occupier reprisals Death Ratio of 10 ordered by Nazi leader and mass murderer Adolph Hitler and carried out with  the Ardeatine Massacre in Rome in 1944 [73, 74]. Shockingly, the ratio of 3,648 Occupied Palestinian children killed/35 Israeli children killed = 104 i.e. over 100 Palestinian children killed for every Israeli child killed on 7 October.  With 1 million Gazans homeless and a near-total Apartheid Israeli ban on life-sustaining water, food, medicine, medical requisites, electricity and fuel to Gaza,  this already appalling  Palestinian death toll is expected to rise enormously. Neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel backed by 34 pro-Apartheid European US Alliance countries is grossly violating the UN Genocide Convention [75] and the Fourth Geneva Convention [76].

A total of 120 decent pro-Humanity countries overwhelmingly voted Yes for the UNGA Ceasefire Resolution, but 14 indecent and pro-Apartheid countries voted No and  45 cowardly, unprincipled and pro-Apartheid countries Abstained.  Shockingly, 34 countries or 58% of the 59 countries opposing the UNGA Ceasefire Resolution, were rich, US-allied  European countries united in their support for nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run, genocidally racist, serial war criminal, grossly human rights-violating, child abusing, mother-abusing, women-abusing,  and neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel.

With the obvious exceptions of rich Japan and rich South  Korea that are militarily heavily allied to the serial war criminal US, poverty and hence susceptibility  to pressure from pro-Apartheid America and Apartheid Israel was evidently behind the 25 non-European countries opposing the Ceasefire Resolution (42% of the 59 countries opposing the UNGA Resolution).  How did your country respond to this present genocidal attack on Humanity?

Apartheid is among the worst of crimes as set out in the UN International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid [77-79]. Decent people around the World  must unite against neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel and its neo-Nazi pro-Apartheid supporters by (a) informing everyone they can, and (b) urging and applying Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel and all people, politicians and parties, collectives, corporations and countries supporting this genocidally racist and  neo-Nazi rogue state.
