Association for Defending Victims if Terrorism – Dr Gideon Polya wrote about Apartheid Israel in his new article.
In it we read,Nuclear armed, serial war criminal and international law-violating Apartheid Israel is a genocidally racist settler-colonialist obscenity, and ranks on a per capita basis among the world’s top militarized countries in 30 key areas of military capacity and ghastly application of military power. On a per capita basis it ranks number 1 in terms of military expenditure, tanks, warplanes, US military aid, killing journalists, population expulsions, and genocide.
How Apartheid Israel ranks among the worst in military assets, militarism, invading, abusing, and killing people in 30 areas is set out below.
(1). Business Insider India on some overall, multifactorial assessment basis ranks Apartheid Israel as #14 out of the world’s 20 strongest militaries. Thus (2020 population in millions, m, in brackets): (1) US (331.0 m), (2) Russia (145.9 m), (3) China (1,439.3 m), (4) Japan (126.5 m), (5) India (1,389 m), (6) France (65.3 m), (7) South Korea (51.3 m), (8) Italy, (9) UK (67.9 m), (10) Turkiye (84.3 m), (11) Pakistan (220.9 m), (12) Egypt (102.3 m), (13) Taiwan (23.8 m), (14) Apartheid Israel (6.9 m non-Palestinians), (15) Australia (25.5 m), (16) Thailand (69.8 m), (17) Poland (37.8 m), (18) Germany (83.8 m), (19) Indonesia (273.5m), and (20) Canada (37.7 m).
However Apartheid Israel (14th on this inexplicit basis) should rank higher because it has 90 nuclear weapons, 5 submarines, a huge trained military reserve, and a huge high technology arms industry. Further, national military investments in general should be considered on a per capita basis. While the 2020 population of Apartheid Israel proper (i.e. excluding its over 5 million Occupied Palestinian Subjects) was 8.6 million, about 20% of the population are Israeli Palestinians who are largely excluded from the armed forces and indeed subject to 60 Nazi-style, race-based, discriminatory laws. Accordingly, the 2020 non-Palestinian population of Apartheid Israel is 0.8 x 8.6 million = 6.9 million, and this estimate will be used in the following analyses.
(2). Military expenditure in “US$ billions per million of population” ranks Apartheid Israel as #1: (1) Apartheid Israel $17 bn/6.9 m = 2.46, (2) US $601 bn/ 331.0 = 1.82, (3) South Korea $62.3 bn/ 51.3 = 1.21, (4) Australia $26.1bn/ 25.5 m = 1.02, (5) France $62.3 bn/ 65.3 m = 0.95, (6) UK $60.5 bn/ 67.9 m = 0.89, (7) Russia $84.5/ 145.9 = 0.58, (8) Italy $34 bn/ 60.5 m = 0.56, (9) Germany $40.2/ 83.8 m = 0.48, (10) Taiwan $10.7 bn/ 23.8 m = 0.45, (11) Canada $15.7 bn/ 37.7 m = 0.42, (12) Japan $41.6 bn/ 126.5 m = 0.33, (13) Poland $9.4 bn / 37.8 m = 0.25, (14) Turkiye $18.2 bn/ 84.3 m = 0.22, (15) China $216 bn/ 1,439.3 m = 0.15, (16) North Korea $4.0 billion/25.779 = 0.12 , (17) Thailand $5.39 bn/ 69.8 m = 0.077, (18) Egypt $4.4 bn/ 102.3 m = 0.043, (19) India $50 bn/ 1,380.0 m = 0.036, (20) Pakistan $7 bn/ 220.9 m =0.032, and (21) Indonesia $6.9 bn/ 273.5 m = 0.025 .

Assessment as “reservists per million of population” [4-6] notably still ranks Apartheid Israel highly as #2 in the world at 465,000/ 6.9 m = 67,391  as compared to Russia 2,000,000/ 145.9 m = 13,708 [5, 6] but is exceeded 2.4-fold by Finland 900,000/ 5.541 m = 162,426 which has a small population and a huge border with Russia.
(5). Assessment as “Submarines per million of population” ranks Apartheid Israel as #2: (1) North Korea 64-86/25,799 m = 2.483-3.336, (2) Israel 5/ 6.9 m = 0.725, (3) Russia 55/ 145.9 m = 0.377, (4) South Korea 13/ 51.3 m = 0.253, (5) Australia 6/ 25.5 m = 0.235, (6) US 72/ 33.0 m = 0.218, (7) Taiwan 4/ 23.8 m = 0.168, (8) Turkiye 13/ 84.3m = 0.154, (9) France 10/ 65.3 m = 0.153, (10) UK 10/ 67.9 m = 0.147, (11) Poland 5/ 37.8 m = 0.132, (12) Canada 4/ 37.7 m = 0.106, (13) Italy 6/ 60.5 m = 0.099, (14) Germany 4/ 83.8 m = 0.048.

(6). Assessment as “Tanks per million of population” ranks Apartheid Israel as #1: (1) Apartheid Israel 4,170/ 6.9 m = 604.3, (2) North Korea 6,645/ 25.779 m = 257.8, (3) Russia 15,398/ 145.9 m = 105.5, (4) Taiwan 2,005/ 23.8 m = 84.2, (5) Egypt 4,624/ 102.3 m = 45.2, (6) Turkey 3,778/ 84.3 m = 44.8, (7) South Korea 2,382/ 51.3 m = 41.7, (8) US 8,848/ 331.0 m =26.73, (9) Poland 1,009/ 37.8 m = 2.9, (10) Pakistan 2,924/ 220.9 m = 13.2, (11) Thailand 722/ 69.8 m = 10.3, (12) Italy 586/ 60.5 m = 9.7, (13) France 423/ 65.3 m = 6.5, (14) China 9,150/ 1,439 m = 6.4, (15) UK 407/ 67.9 m = 6.0, (16) Japan 678/ 12.5 m = 5.4, (17) Germany 408/ 83.8 m = 4.9, (18) Canada 181/ 37.7 m = 4.8, (19) India 6,464/1,380.0 m = 4.7, (20) Australia 59/ 25.5m = 2.3, (21) Indonesia 468/ 73.5 m = 1.7.
(7). Assessment as “Warplanes per million of population” ranks Apartheid Israel as #1: (1) Apartheid Israel 684/ 6.9 m = 99.1, (2) US 13,982/ 331.0 m = 42.0, (3) North Korea 950/ 25.779 m = 3.9, (4) Taiwan 804/ 23.8 m = 33.8, (5) South Ko0rea 1,412/ 51.3 m = 27.5, (6) Russia 3,429/ 145.9 m = 23.5, (7) France 1,264/ 65.3 m = 19.5, (8) UK 936/ 67.9 m = 13.8, (9) Pakistan 2,924/ 220.9 m = 13.2, (10) Japan 1,613/ 26.5 m = 12.8, (11) Italy 760/ 60.5 m = 12.6, (12) Poland 467/ 37.8 m = 12.4, (13) Turkey 1,020/ 84.3 m = 12.1, (14) Canada 420/ 37.7 m = 11.1, (15) Egypt 1,107/ 102.3 m = 10.8, (16) Thailand 573/ 69.8 m = 8.2, (17) Germany 663/ 83.8 m = 7.9, (18) Australia 408/ 25.5 m = 4.0, (19) China 2,860/ 1,439.3 m = 2.0, (20) Indonesia 405/ 273.5 m = 1.5, (21) India 1,905/ 1,380.0 m = 1.4.
(8). Assessment in order of total nuclear weapons ranks Apartheid Israel as #8 out of 9 nuclear armed states (2020 population in millions m in brackets): (1) Russia 5,977 (145.934 m), (2) US 5,428 (331.003 m), (3) China 350 (1,439.324 m), (4) France 290 (65.274 m), (5) UK 225 (67.886 m), (6) Pakistan 165 (220.892 m), (7) India 160 (1,80.004), (8). Apartheid Israel 90 (6.9 m non-Palestinians), (9). North Korea 20-43 (25.779 m) .
(9) Assessment in order of “Nuclear weapons per million of population” ranks Apartheid Israel #3: (1) Russia 40.96, (2) US 16.40, (3) Apartheid Israel 13.00, (4) France 4.44, (5) UK 3.31, (6) North Korea 0.78-1.67, (7) Pakistan 0.70, (8) China 0.24, (9) India 0.12 .
(10) Assessment in order of numbers of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines: will nuclear-armed Apartheid Israel follow non-nuclear-armed Australia and acquire nuclear-powered submarines? Wikipedia: “A ballistic missile is a type of missile that uses projectile motion to deliver warheads on a target. These weapons are powered only during relatively brief periods—most of the flight is unpowered. Short-range ballistic missiles stay within the Earth’s atmosphere, while intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are launched on a sub-orbital flight … Tactical short- and medium-range missiles are often collectively referred to as tactical and theatre ballistic missiles, respectively. Long- and medium-range ballistic missiles are generally designed to deliver nuclear weapons because their payload is too limited for conventional explosives to be cost-effective [!!!] in comparison to conventional bomber aircraft (though the U.S. is evaluating the idea of a conventionally armed ICBM for near-instant global air strike capability, despite the high costs)”.
The following countries have nuclear –powered submarines: (1) US 68 (14 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 54 other nuclear-powered attack submarines), (2) Russia 29 (11 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 18 other nuclear powered attack submarines), (3) China – 12 (6 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 6 other nuclear-powered attack submarines), (4) UK 11 (4 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 7 other nuclear-powered attack submarines), (5) France 8 (4 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, 4 other nuclear-powered attack submarines), and (6) India has 1 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine
Serial war criminal, genocidally racist and pathologically mendacious Apartheid Israel refuses to confirm or deny whether it has nuclear weapons. However, according to the Nobel Prize-winning (and Melbourne-founded) International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) Apartheid Israel has 90 nuclear weapons: “Israel, nuclear-armed state, possesses 90 nuclear weapons, has not yet joined the TPNW [Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons]… Israel has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)…. Israel has consistently voted against an annual UN General Assembly resolution since 2018 that welcomes the adoption of the TPNW and calls upon all states to sign, ratify, or accede to it “at the earliest possible date””.
According to Wikipedia: “The IDF is believed to have maintained an operational nuclear weapons capability since 1967, possibly possessing between 80 and 400 nuclear warheads; its nuclear-delivery system structure is widely suspected of having been successfully developed into a nuclear triad, primarily consisting of Jericho land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, Popeye Turbo maritime-based submarine-launched cruise missiles, and various delivery-capable aircraft” .
Victor Gilinsky (a physicist and a commissioner of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission during the Ford, Carter, and Reagan administrations) (2023): “The popular explanation of the US gag on Israeli nuclear weapons is that it is required by a September 1969 deal between Richard Nixon and Israel’s then-prime minister Golda Meir in which America would accept a nuclear-armed Israel and both would keep Israel’s nuclear weapons secret… Nevertheless, US presidents since Bill Clinton are said to have signed a secret letter that they will not interfere with Israel’s nuclear weapons, and Israel acted as if it was entitled to such a commitment from every incoming US president…. While the US government tiptoes around the issue, Israel brags about its nuclear force. At the 2016 ceremony for the arrival of the fifth German-built submarine which Israel outfits with long range nuclear-tipped missiles, Netanyahu said: “Our submarine fleet is used first and foremost to deter our enemies” .
Australia is second only to the US as a supporter of Apartheid Israel, Australia on a bipartisan basis involving the right-wing, US lackey Labor Government and the even more extremist Coalition Opposition has agreed under the AUKUS (Australia, UK and US) Agreement to buy 8 variously UK or US nuclear –powered submarines over the next 2 decades for A$368 billion, this locking Australia in to US and UK nuclear terrorism, threat and war criminal invasion of other countries for decades to come. Over the last decade under former Coalition and Labor Governments Australia hosted 3,000 US soldiers rotating through a base in the Northern Territory. Under the present Labor Government Australia will host 6 US B-52 bombers and expand visits by US warships, with carriage of nuclear weapons neither confirmed nor denied. While the Labor Party membership has voted for Australia to sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) the Labor Government (elected in 2022) refuses to do so because 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;… €. Assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Treaty”. Ratification of the TPNW would detach Australia from close military ties with the US, UK, and Apartheid Israel and one supposes that these countries secretly vetoed Labor Party policy over the TPNW.
Despite pro-Palestinian moves by the Labor Party membership, the US- and Zionist-beholden Australian Labor Government (second only to the US Government as a supporter of Apartheid Israel) 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 . Assuming final delivery by 2045, the AUKUS submarine deal can be crudely estimated to cost at least A$368 billion over the next 22 years or roughly A$368 billion / 22 years = A$16.7 billion per year (34% of the 2022/2023 Defence budget of A$48.7 billion). 100,000 Australians die preventably each year from “life-style choice” and “political choice” reasons but requisite action on this carnage is sabotaged by this massive fiscal perversion of A$16.7 billion per year for nuclear-powered submarines. Indeed the key “advantage” of nuclear-powered submarines – undetectability – will be lost in coming decades by underwater drones and through AI analysis of tiny physical perturbations (e.g. of magnetic field). Zionist-subverted and US lackey Australian Governments will be spending at least A$368 billion to shore up US , UK and Apartheid Israeli militarism and nuclear terrorism while 100,000 Australians will continue to die preventably each year.
War is the penultimate in racism, and genocide – from local ethnic cleansing to the terminal terracide – the ultimate. Presently undetectable nuclear-armed and nuclear powered submarines are the peak weapons. Indeed only 1 is sufficient t to destroy most of Humanity and the Biosphere. Given Apartheid Israel’s policy of “neither confirming nor denying” about its 90 nuclear weapons, the question is not if US-dominating Apartheid Israel will acquire nuclear-powered as well as nuclear-armed submarines, but whether it has already done so.
(11). Apartheid Israel is a global stand-out for not ratifying the Convention on Chemical Weapons. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW): “As at 16 June 2018 number of states parties: 193 number of signatory States that had not yet ratified the Convention: 1. The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction (hereinafter “the Convention”) was adopted in Geneva on 3 September 1992 by the Conference on Disarmament, which transmitted it to the United Nations General Assembly at its Forty-Seventh Session. The General Assembly commended the Convention and requested the United Nations Secretary-General, as Depositary, to open it for signature in Paris on 13 January 1993… Signatory States that had not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention as at 16 June 2018: Israel” .
(12). Apartheid Israel is a stand-out in the Developed World for rejecting the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC). Thus Wikipedia: “The Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), negotiated from 1969 to 1972, prohibits States Parties from developing, producing, stockpiling or otherwise acquiring or retaining biological and toxin weapons and their means of delivery, and also governs their destruction… The BWC has 185 States Parties as of February 2023, with South Sudan the most recent to become a party [?]. Four states have signed but not ratified the treaty: Egypt, Haiti, Somalia, and Syria. Nine additional states have neither signed nor acceded to the treaty: Chad, Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Israel, Kiribati, Micronesia, South Sudan and Tuvalu” .
(13). Apartheid Israel ranks #1 in the world as a recipient of US military aid. Apartheid Israel did not achieve this appalling status as being among the very top military countries in the world on a per capita basis without extraordinary help from the US. Thus under Nobel Peace Prize awardee Barack Obama the US committed to $38 billion of military aid to Apartheid Israel (non-Palestinian population 6.9 million) over 10 years = $3,800 million per year / 365.25 days per year = $10.4 million per day .
By way of comparison the US has given sub-Saharan Africa (2020 population 1,083.5 million) about $7 billion per year over the last decade = $7,000 million per year/365-25 days per year = $19.2 million per day. Thus the US Congressional Research Service : “Overview. Congress authorizes, appropriates, and oversees U.S. foreign assistance for sub-Saharan Africa (“Africa”), which typically receives about a quarter of all U.S. foreign assistance (including humanitarian assistance) annually. Annual State Department- and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-administered assistance to Africa increased more than five-fold in the 2000s, largely due to increases in global health spending to help combat HIV/AIDS. Over the past decade, funding levels have fluctuated between $6.5 and $7.5 billion annually” .
(14). In a comparison scored over the last 1,000 years, 75-year old Apartheid Israel ranks #9 in the world for invading other countries. The worst state crime of all is invasion of another country but International Law as enshrined in the UN Charter only permits this in certain circumstances (and then only after serious negotiations): (a) if there is UN permission, (b) if the invading country has been invaded, and (c) if the invading country has been invited to invade by the government. In the last millennium the British have invaded 193 countries, Australia 85, France 82, the US 70 (50 after WW2), Germany 39, Japan 30, Russia 25, Canada 25, Apartheid Israel 13, China 2, and North Korea arguably 0 . Apartheid Israel has only been going as a neo-Nazi, serial war criminal and genocidally racist entity for 75 years and hence a more valid comparison is presented in (15) below
(15). Apartheid Israel ranks #2 in the world after the US (#1) for invading other countries in the last 75 years. The US is a horrendous serial invader of other countries, whereas 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, including 251 invasions since 1991 (according to the US Congressional Research Service), has 800 military bases in over 70 countries, and subverts all countries . Apartheid Israel arguably ranks #2 in the world for attacking the territory of 13 other countries in the last 75 years.
(16). In terms of “1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation” in countries variously occupied in the post-WW2 era, serial invader Apartheid Israel ranks # 8 in the world (deaths in millions, m, in brackets): (1) UK (727 m), (2) France (142 m ), (3) US (82 m), (4) Netherlands (72 m), (5) Pakistan (51 m), (6) Russia (37 m), (7) Belgium (36 m, (8) Apartheid Israel (24 m), (9) Portugal (23 m) .
(17). Assessment as “average number of journalists killed per 10 million of population per year” reveals that Apartheid Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) ranks #1 in the world: (1) Apartheid Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) (over 6.164), Syria (4.733), Afghanistan (2.563), Israel-Palestine (over 2.190), Somalia (1.751), Yemen (1.278), Iraq (0.897), Mexico (0.750), Colombia (0.366), Philippines (0.283), Pakistan (0.152), World (0.084), India (0.027) .
On a per capita basis, the killing of journalists by Apartheid Israel in Occupied Palestine leads the World, and is 73.4 times greater than for the World as a whole. In contrast, India scores 3.1 times lower than the World. The present data shows that Apartheid Israel leads the World by far in the OPT for killing journalists .
(18 ). Assessment as “Children killed per year per million of total territory population” reveals that Apartheid Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) ranks among the worst countries in the world for violently killing children: Honduras (75.7), Congo (Zaire; Ituri Province) (53.6), Apartheid Israel (OPT) (25.8), World (7.6), India (Kashmir) (2.6) . Thou shalt not kill children .
(19). Assessment of countries partially or completely occupying the territory of other countries reveals Apartheid Israel as #1 in the world. Apartheid Israel has invaded the territory of 13 countries, has repeatedly attacked all of its neighbours, and still occupies territory of 4 countries: Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria .
(20). Assessment of states denying human rights to their Subjects reveals Apartheid Israel to be the #1 human rights-denying country in the world. Apartheid Israel has grossly violated the human rights of the 13 countries it has attacked, and the 4 countries whose territory it still occupies. However in relation to the 15.5 million sorely oppressed and impoverished Indigenous Palestinians subject to egregious Apartheid Israeli violence: (a) 7 million Exiled Palestinians are denied return to the country continuously inhabited by their forebears for millennia (this grossly violating Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR): “(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. (2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country ); (b) 5.5 million Occupied Palestinians are highly abusively confined by neo-Nazi Apartheid Israeli military to ever-dwindling West Bank ghettoes or the blockaded and bombed Gaza Concentration Camp in extreme poverty, without the human rights specified in the 30 Articles of the UDHR, and unable to vote for the government ruling them , (c) and 2 million Israeli Palestinians are able to vote for the government ruling albeit as Third Class citizens subject to 60 Nazi-style race-based discriminatory laws
(21). Assessment of relative income and wealth reveals Apartheid Israel to be the #1 country for militarily-enforced gross, race-based inequity in the world. The annual per capita GDP is a deadly $3,506 for Occupied Palestinians as compared to $55,535 for Apartheid Israel proper (i.e. ignoring Occupied Palestinians) . About 4,000 Occupied Palestinians die avoidably from imposed deprivation each year, and 90,000 have died thus this century. The WW1 onwards and ongoing Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, and imposed deprivation, 2.1 million .
(22). Apartheid Israel has taken over from pre-1994 South Africa and pre-1970s US as the #1 country in the world for violently-imposed, race-based Apartheid. Indigenous Palestinians represent 52% of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel but 73% of them are excluded from voting for the government ruling them i.e. they are subject to egregious Apartheid. For attendant gross human rights abuses see item 20 above. Leading global and Israeli human rights organizations, anti-racist scholars around the world, and heroes in the fight against Apartheid in South Africa declare that Israel is an Apartheid state. Indeed Dr Hendrik Verwoerd, the “architect of Apartheid” in South Africa declared that “Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state”. A recent poll showed that 25% of US Jews regard Israel as an Apartheid state, as do 38% of under-40 US Jews.
(23). Nuclear-armed, highly militarized and serial war criminal Apartheid Israel is the world’s #1 anti-democratic, genocidally racist and neo-Nazi state. For a detailed and shocking list of 52 Zionist- and Apartheid Israeli-Nazi Germany comparisons see. Apartheid is a racist and indeed genocidally racist ideology like Nazism, and is condemned as a crime against Humanity by the “International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid”. Indeed many of Apartheid’s South African proponents were imprisoned as Nazi sympathizers during WW2. Dr Hendrik Verwoerd, the “architect of Apartheid”, was pro-Nazi and in 1943 South African judge Justice Mallin stated that Verwoerd “did support Nazi propaganda, he did make his paper a tool of Nazis in South Africa, and he knew it”]. In 1960 Dr Hendrik Verwoerd stated: “Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state”. In the 1930s major US corporations of the “hidden government” of the US played a crucial role in the rise of Hitler and German re-armament, the ultimate goal being the destruction of Russian Communism . These same corporations and the “hidden government” (in Corporatocracy America Big Money buys votes, influence and power) are still there but from the mid-1960s on have strongly supported Apartheid Israel. The Awful Truth is that Zionism is genocidal racism and Nazism without gas chambers but with 100 nuclear warheads and one of the biggest high technology armed forces and war industries on the planet . For over a century Zionist leaders have been explicitly expressing clear genocidal intent  that has been substantially effected by the successive 1948 Nakba and 1967 Naksa mass expulsion atrocities [41, 42].
(24). Apartheid Israel is #1 in the world for war criminal violation of International conventions. The major International Laws and Conventions grossly violated by Apartheid Israel include the following: the UN Charter, the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (UN Genocide Convention), the Rights of the Child Convention (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child ), the UN Refugee Convention ( UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees), the Geneva Conventions, the International Criminal Court, the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, numerous UNGA and UNSC Resolutions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the 1926 Slavery Convention or the Convention to Suppress the Slave Trade and Slavery, and the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement .
(25). Apartheid Israel is among the worst countries in the world for abuse of children. About 50% of the 15.5 million sorely oppressed Indigenous Palestinians are children and about 75% are women and children. There is massive trauma associated with 75 years of racist abuse and genocidal violence by Apartheid Israel which on a per capita basis is among leading countries for killing children (see item 18 above). However about 50% of Israeli children are subject to psychological, physical and sexual abuse (17% of Israeli children experiencing the latter, as compared to 17.5% of children in Zionist-perverted US and 25% in Zionist-perverted Australia) .
(26). Apartheid Israel is #1 in the world for egregious lying that has enabled the ongoing Palestinian Genocide and the settler-colonial ethnic cleansing of Palestine. All states and government routinely attempt plausible lying (a notable and noble example being the D-Day Normandy Landing deceptions in WW2), but Apartheid Israel is pathologically and absurdly mendacious. Some of the more egregious falsehoods include (a) Jews have right to Palestine (the dominant Ashkenazi Jews, including me, are not Semitic and descend from Turkic Khazar converts to Judaism in the 8th century CE); (b) there is no non-Biblical evidence for the Exodus from Egypt, the Kingdom of David and Solomon, or the Exile from Palestine under the Romans; (c) Israel is a Jewish state (51% of the Subjects of Apartheid Israel are Indigenous Palestinians, 47% are Jewish Israelis, and the ethnic descendants of the Jewish and non-Jewish Palestinians at the time of Jesus are the Indigenous Palestinians – the Jewish Israelis largely descend from Yemeni, Berber and Khazar converts to Judaism in the first millennium CE); and Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East (it is a neo-Nazi, raced-based ethnocracy and democracy-by-genocide Apartheid rogue state ruled by a racist Zionist minority best described as Zionazis).
(27). Apartheid Israel and its fanatical Zionist supporters engage in egregious anti-semitism and are #1 for anti-Semitism in the world today. This is summarized in a recent letter I sent to a leading Australian newspaper (it was not published; apart from The Guardian, Australian and Western Mainstream media and politicians are egregiously Zionist-subverted after over a century of remorseless Zionist lying and bullying): “Outstanding anti-racist Jewish Australian writer Antony Loewenstein is correct in exposing the side-lining of anti-racist Jewish critics of Apartheid Israel (The Age 13/5). As an anti-racist Jewish Australian and the author of 9 huge books and hundreds of carefully researched and referenced humanitarian articles I have been rendered essentially invisible in Australia (if not overseas) through sustained and false Zionist defamation. The Coalition, the Federal Labor Government, the Labor governments of Victoria and SA, and Melbourne University have all adopted the false and racist definition of anti-Semitism of the Zionist International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) of which Australia is a member. The IHRA definition is anti-Jewish anti-Semitic and anti-Arab anti-Semitic (by falsely defaming anti-racist Jewish, Palestinian, Arab and Muslim critics of neo-Nazi Israeli Apartheid as anti-Semitic), holocaust-ignoring (by ignoring all WW2 holocausts other than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust and some 70 holocausts and genocides), and has been condemned by over 40 anti-racist Jewish organizations. Outstanding anti-racist Jewish American Professor Bertell Ollman: “The Zionists are the worst anti-Semites in the world today, oppressing a Semitic people as no nation has done since the Nazis.” Pro-Apartheid Israel and hence pro-Apartheid Australia needs de-Nazification.”
(28). Apartheid Israel is among world leaders for the absolute number of refugees created. Wikipedia on Palestinian demographics (2022): “Despite various wars and exoduses, roughly one half of the world’s Palestinian population continues to reside in the territory of former British Palestine, now encompassing the West Bank and the Gaza Strip (the Palestinian territories) as well as Israel. In this combined area, as of 2022, Palestinians constitute a demographic majority, with an estimated population of 7.503 million or 51.16% (as compared to Jews at 46-47%) of all inhabitants, taking in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and almost 21 percent of the population of Israel proper as part of its Arab citizens. Many are Palestinian refugees or internally displaced Palestinians, including more than a million in the Gaza Strip, around 750,000 in the West Bank, and around 250,000 in Israel proper. Of the Palestinian population who live abroad, known as the Palestinian diaspora, more than half are stateless, lacking legal citizenship in any country” . The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA): “Nearly one-third of the registered Palestine refugees [5.2 million], more than 1.5 million individuals, live in 58 recognized Palestine refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem… The remaining two thirds of registered Palestine refugees live in and around the cities and towns of the host countries, and in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, often in the environs of official camps” .
(29). On a per capita basis Apartheid Israel is #1 in the world for generating refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). In order of “present expelled and displaced people/ million of 2020 population: (1) Israel (8 million Palestinians displaced / 6.9 million non-Palestinian Israelis = 1.16), Myanmar (2.62 million Rohingya and other refugees and IDPs/ 54.4 million = 0.048) . UNHCR: “While a full picture is yet to be established, UNHCR estimates that global forced displacement has reached 103 million at mid-2022… 72% originate from just 5 countries… Syrian Arab Republic 6.8 million, Venezuela 5.6 million, Ukraine 5.4 million, Afghanistan 2.8 million, South Sudan 2.4 million”. The endlessly interventionist US has variously played a major role in all 5 disasters to yield an upper estimate of a total of 23.0 million displaced/ 331.0 million = 0.069.
(30). Apartheid Israel is #1 in the world for intended and effected genocide. Article 2 of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (UN Genocide Convention) states: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; € Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” .
Zionist leaders from the late 19th century to the present have an appalling record of explicitly espousing genocide of the Palestinians e.g. Zionist leaders from Zionism-founder Theodor Herzl (“We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it employment in our country. The property owners will come over to our side. Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly”) to present Apartheid Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu (“Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories” ) have explicitly advocated ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Indeed the morally degenerate former Israeli PM Golda Meir denied the very existence of Palestine and Palestinians: “There is no such thing as a Palestinian people… It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn’t exist” (her vile views are repeated by the present Israeli Government ). A former US Ambassador to Apartheid Israel and the UN, Tom Pickering, has predicted eventual total ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian Occupied Palestinian Territory . The WW1 onwards and ongoing Palestinian Genocide has been associated with 2.2 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, or from imposed deprivation (2.1 million) and 2 mass expulsion events (800,000 or 57% of the Palestinian population in the 1948 Nakba or Catastrophe, and another 400,000 Arabs expelled in the 1967 Naksa or Setback) . Apartheid Israel has been involved in supplying weapons to genocidal conflicts around the world.
Final comments and comparisons.
This account has merely sketched how Apartheid Israel is either #1 in the world or among world leaders in 30 areas of militarization, killing, gross human rights abuse and genocide. Citizens of other top military states will no doubt be interested in how their country ranks. A detailed and comprehensive account awaits a latter-day equivalent of the post-WW2 Nuremberg War Crimes Trials.
Just as mendacious and genocidally racist Zionists have got the Zionist-subverted Western Mainstream to remorselessly ignore the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, so they have persuaded Jewish Israelis to ignore what is going down on the other side of Apartheid Wall and of the barbed wire shutting off the blockaded and bombed Gaza Concentration Camp. Thus a ranking of Happiness based on a three-year-average 2020–2022 ranks Apartheid Israel at #4 in the world: (1) Finland, (2) Denmark, (3) Iceland, (4) Apartheid Israel, (5) Netherlands, (6) Sweden, (7),Norway, (8) Switzerland, (9) Luxembourg, (10) New Zealand, (11) Austria, (12) Australia, (13) Canada, (14) Ireland, (15) U,; (16). Germany, (17) Belgium, (18) Czechia, (19) UK, (20) Lithuania, (21) France, (22) Slovenia, (23) Costa Rica, (24) Romania, (25) Singapore… (99) Palestine… (136) Lebanon and (137) Afghanistan .
The core ethos of Humanity is Kindness and Truth but genocidally racist Zionism has perverted this to Racism and Mendacity. Decent folk must act by (a) informing everyone they can (the journalist, editor, politician, academic and commentariat presstitutes of the Zionist-subverted Western Mainstream certainly won’t), and by (b) urging and applying rigorous Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel and all its evilly pro-Apartheid supporters.
