Apartheid Australia : 70 Asians Don't Equal One White
By Dr Gideon Polya
18 August, 2009
Those familiar with Australia will remember the notorious White Australian Policy that excluded Indians, Africans, Asians and indeed non-Europeans in general from Australia in the period 1901-1974. This racist obscenity was removed by the reformist Whitlam Government in 1974, the year before it was removed from office by a US-backed “constitutional coup”. .
In 1975 the Whitlam Labor Government passed the Racial Discrimination Act 1975. However under race-based legislation of the previous Coalition Government (passed with Labor Opposition support in 2007 ) and under the Labor Federal Government since 2007, Northern Territory Indigenous Australians (Aborigines) have been specifically excluded from the protection of the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act – they are forbidden to buy, see, read, consume, transport or sell things that all other Australians can and can be arbitrarily removed from their home communities on ancestral land on the say so of officials without recourse to protection from law. .
In a little over 30 years the anti-racist, anti-war Labor Party of the Whitlam era has become a racist, pro-war, pro-coal, pro-pollution Apartheid Labor Party - Australia has reverted de jure and de facto to the Apartheid Australia of the bad old days when White Australia - together with US, UK and Apartheid Israel – supported Apartheid South Africa.
Before 1975, racist White Australians were sufficiently confident in their racism that they expressed their racial superiority quite explicitly and even in mathematical terms. However in 2009 politically correct racist (PC racist) White Australians wouldn't dream of making such racist statements but the racist reality is just as bad but utterly ignored in “look-the-other-way” PC racist Apartheid Australia . Part of this political schizophrenia derives from huge support for the extreme right wing Labor Party from US and racist Zionist (RZ) interests, including massive donations to the corrupt Labor Party from Australia 's most notorious white collar criminal i.e. funding by the proceeds from massive corporate crime.
Pro-US imperialism, pro-racist Zionist (RZ), pro-war, pro-coal, pro-pollution, pro-terracide Australia has become Apartheid Australia (aka UStralia, Ozrael or Ozraelia).
Below are some examples of Apartheid Australian racism by numbers.
1. Australian PM Edmund Barton, 1901: 1 Englishman > 1 Chinese.
The racist first Prime Minister of Australia, Edmund Barton, in arguing for the 1901 Immigration Act (the Commonwealth Immigration Restriction Bill (1901) popularly known as the White Australia policy), stated bluntly: “The doctrine of the equality of man was never intended to apply to the equality of an Englishman and the Chinaman.” .
2. Arthur Calwell, Australian Immigration Minister, 1947: 1 White man > 2 Chinese.
Arthur Calwell was the Minister of Immigration in the postwar Labour Government (1945-1949) and later became Leader of the Labor Opposition. Arthur Calwell made some appalling assertions in the late 1940s in commenting on the deportation of particular Asians he found undesirable. In relation to the deportation of a Chinese refugee Wong in 1947, Calwell made the following notorious declaration of racial inequality in Federal Parliament:
“There are many Wongs in the Chinese community, but I have to say - and I am sure that the honourable member for Balaclava [T.W. White, Liberal] will not mind me for doing so - that “two Wongs do not make a White.”” .
3. Apartheid Australia , 2009 re UN Security Council seat: 1 Australian > 55 Indians.
War criminal, high polluting, climate criminal Apartheid Australia (population 21 million) has been conducting an intense international campaign for a seat on the United Nations Security Council to the exclusion of non-militarist, low polluting, non-racist countries such as India (population 1,148 million). The India/Australia population ratio is 1,148 million/ 21 million = 55, this leading to the conclusion that in racist White Australian eyes 55 Indians do not equate with a White Australian. .
4. Apartheid Australia , 2009 re per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution: 1 Australian > 60 Bangladeshis, 25 Indians, 10 Chinese or 8 other human beings.
As of 2008, “annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution” in units of “tonnes CO 2 -equivalent per person per year” (2005-2008 data) is 0.9 ( Bangladesh ), 2.2 ( India ), 5.5 ( China ), 6.7 (the World), 11 (Europe), 27 (the US ) and 30 ( Australia ; or 54 if Australia 's huge Exported CO 2 pollution is included). Thus in relation to annual per capita GHG pollution, Apartheid Australia is 8 times worse than the World average, 10 times worse than China , 25 times worse than India and 60 times worse than Bangladesh . [6, 7].
5. Apartheid Australia , 2009 re infant mortality of Australian subjects: 1 Australian > 70 Occupied Afghans.
From UN Population Division data, the “annual death rate” of under-5 year old Australian infants is about 0.1% whereas that for under-5 year old infants in Apartheid Australia-occupied Afghanistan is a genocidal 7%. This huge difference largely arises because Apartheid Australia is committed to keeping Occupied Afghanistan as an indefinite war zone and refuses to provide food and medical provisions “to the fullest extent of the means available to it” as demanded by Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War – according to WHO, the “total annual per capita health expenditure” is US$29 in Occupied Afghanistan as compared to US$3,122 in Occupier Australia. [8, 9, 10].
I recently sent the following Letter to NGOs, individuals, media and MPs about Apartheid Australian involvement in war crimes and genocide. The response has, of course, been deafening silence.
Dear Sir/Madam etc,
Horrifying UN statistics demonstrate that the elections to be held in Occupied Afghanistan under Occupier guns will not be democratic.
According to UN Population Division statistics, the "annual death rate" is 7% for Occupied Afghan under-5 year old infants as compared to 3% (for inmates of the Nazi German Buchenwald Concentration Camp), 5% (for French Jews under Nazi German and French collaborationist Vichy régime), 10% (for Australian prisoners of war of the Japanese in WW2) and 17% (for Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe 1941-1945).
Would the Afghan parents and family members of these innocent victims willingly vote for puppets of the US Alliance mass murderers of Afghan children? Would the World War 2 inmates of Buchenwald Concentration Camp, French Jews in Nazi-occupied France, Australian POWs of the Japanese or the Jews of Nazi-occupied Europe have voted for representatives of their murderous captors and persecutors?
In Occupied Afghanistan post-invasion non-violent excess deaths total 3.2 million; post-invasion violent deaths total up to about 4 million; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 2.3 million; there are 3-4 million Afghan refugees plus a further 2.5 million Pashtun refugees generated in NW Pakistan under Obama – an Afghan Genocide in which Australia is complicit as well as in the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide, Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide and worsening Climate Genocide that may kill 10 billion non-Europeans this century due to unaddressed, man-made climate change.

PPS. Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity.
END LETTER. [12, 13].
The racism of Apartheid Australia is a major threat to India , Bangladesh , Island Nations, mega-delta nations and indeed to the whole World. It is estimated that unaddressed, man-made climate change (with Apartheid Australia being a major culprit) will kill 10 billion people this century – this carnage involving the sacrifice of 6 billion infants, 3 billion Muslims, 2 million Indians and 0.3 billion Bangladeshis on the altar of Anglo-American and Apartheid Australian greed. .
How should Indians, Bangladeshis, Afghans, South Asians – and indeed all Humanity – respond to the PC racism of Apartheid Australia ? As I endlessly repeat, Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. All decent folk should respond by (a) informing everyone they can and (b) by imposing sanctions and boycotts on Apartheid Australia , just as sanctions and boycotts were imposed on Apartheid Australia- and Apartheid Israel-supported Apartheid South Africa for its much less violent anti-Indian, anti-Asian and anti-African race policies.
