Famine, Deaths as Tools of Israel's Genocide

A Progressive Blog Became Apologist for Genocide

It hurts to link to my home for over a decade ... some 15 years ... I was one of the international bloggers ... the HRC brigade stopped me from blogging ... what have the Democrats to show for ... AmericaFirst! ... a shame Europe doesn't understand what the effect will be in the near future .. making America great again and the rest can fu*k off.

Showing a lot of bull from history to look away from today's responsibility ...

The Famine Has Arrived in Gaza

The global wheat supply proved remarkably resilient in the face of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and that's fortunate because before the war Ukraine was responsible for six percent of global wheat exports. It was the seventh biggest exporter of wheat, fourth biggest of barley and the largest for sunflower seeds. One reason the world hasn't gone hungry is that Ukraine shipments have continued ...

I mention this because it demonstrates that Ukraine knows how to supply food, which makes it odd that it suffered one of the more brutal famines of the 20th Century. Referred to as Holodomor, which means "death by hunger" in Ukrainian, it resulted in several million starved Ukrainians. The first cause was that Josef Stalin's agricultural collectivization program thoroughly disrupted the farming economy, but Stalin exploited and exacerbated the shortages to put down Ukrainian rebellion.

    Holodomor, man-made famine that convulsed the Soviet republic of Ukraine from 1932 to 1933, peaking in the late spring of 1933. It was part of a broader Soviet famine (1931-34) that also caused mass starvation in the grain-growing regions of Soviet Russia and Kazakhstan.

This is only one of Stalin's notorious crimes, but it's the primary reason his death toll at least rivals Hitler's.

It's a prime piece of evidence for why Stalin has gone down in history less as the man who stopped Hitler and more as a monster. It's probably true that Stalin did not set out to cause a famine, but his policies had that predictable effect, and he then used famine as a weapon.

Fast-foward ninety years and we see this:

The leader of U.S.A.I.D. cites 'credible' assessments that famine has begun in northern Gaza.

Samantha Power, the administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, told lawmakers this week that a famine was underway in northern Gaza, which has been devastated by six months of Israeli military operations and is the part of the territory most cut off from aid.

[...]

Complete false to compare the Gaza genocide to any other incident and especially to demonize Russia for its SMO. The dictatorship of Joe Stalin played a crucial role in defeating the fascist Nazi regime of Hitler and Germany. The Soviet Republic lost anywhere between 26 and 43 million of its citizens. The USSR saved the European states from fascism, together with crucial allies with leaders Roosevelt and Churchill.

My diary about the Holodomor ... death count 2.8 million. So sloppy writing by Longman is in tacit disinformation. Shameless.

On the banning of the Palestine Congress (in German and English)

Follow the livestream of the press conference on the banning of the Palestine Congress. Yesterday the Palestine Conference was stormed by the police and banned. The state repression against the Palestine Conference shows that the German state does not want us to accuse them of complicity in the genocide in Gaza.

But we won't let ourselves be silenced! Featuring  @MERA25_de 's Karin De Rigo, Wieland Hoban from Jewish Voice for Peace, and many more.
