The Toulouse Massacre in which 7 people, 3 of them children, were murdered in France by a crazed Muslim-origin gunman Mohammed Merah (a French citizen of Algerian descent) , has shocked all decent people. However reason must prevail over emotion and must determine how the chances of a recurrence of this awful atrocity can be minimized. Compelling conclusions are that anti-Arab anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and the racist Zionist-backed US Alliance War on Muslims (12 million dead since 1990) must be halted; that the genocidal racist Zionists must be sidelined from public life (as has already happened to like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders and KKK); and that the Palestinian Genocide (2 million war- and deprivation-related Palestinian deaths since 1936) must end, with a race-based, genocidal Apartheid Israel being replaced with a non-racist society based on equality, justice and reconciliation.
Rational risk management, that is crucial for societal safety and which has made passenger aviation so safe, successively involves (a) accurate information, (b) scientific analysis, this involving the critical testing of potentially falsifiable hypotheses, and (c) science- informed systemic change to minimize recurrence of adverse events. Unfortunately, inevitably corrupt societies typically adopt a dangerously incorrect converse approach that involves (a) lying by omission and commission, propaganda, censorship and intimidation of reportage, (b) anti-science spin involving the selective use of asserted facts to support a partisan position, and (c) resort to violent blame and shame with rejection of sensible systemic change, this further preventing crucially requisite reportage. A rational risk management approach to the Toulouse Massacre is outlined below.
1. There will always be a very small proportion of people who cross the line into the insanity of homicide - indeed criminologists inform us that most violence and homicide is against people personally known to the perpetrators including family members i.e. people they know or indeed love . FBI crime reports indicate that the vast majority of homicides involve acquaintances or relatives (75%) rather than strangers (25%) (see:
http://www.drtomoconnor.com/3220/3220lect03a.htm ). Minimizing such aberrant occurrences involves better mental health services and avoidance of a social culture of violence (this including avoidance of bigotry, racism, war and warmongering).
2. The perpetrator of the Toulouse Massacre was killed by the authorities rather than being subdued chemically, but before being killed the mass murderer reportedly adduced the large-scale killing of Palestinians and Afghans by the racist Zionists and the racist US Alliance as the reason. In contrast Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik (who killed 77 mostly young Norwegians in 2011) was a self-confessed virulent Islamophobe and a genocidal pro-Zionist. Bush and Blair launched the Iraq War (2.7 million violent deaths and avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation) merely on the asserted basis of “fears” that were subsequently shown to be groundless (for a comparison of these 3 mass murderers see “Bush, Blair and Breivik” by Allen Jasson, MWC News, 1 August 2011: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/12512-bush-blair-and-breivik.html ) . Of course there is no excuse for gratuitous homicide against innocent people but from a risk management perspective it is useful to know the actual or ostensible basis for these vile acts.
3. The mass murder by the West of ethnically or culturally Arab Semitic people (Arabs and Muslims) has reached holocaust and genocidal proportions. Thus in the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims violent deaths plus avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation total 12 million since 1990, the breakdown being 4.6 million (Iraq, 1990-2012), 5.6 million (Afghanistan, 2001-2012), 2.2 million (Somalia, 1992-2012), and 0.1 million (Libya, 2011-2012). These estimates are consonant with UN-reported under-5 infant deaths in this period totalling 2.0 million (Iraq), 2.9 million (Afghanistan ) and 1.3 million (Somalia), 90% avoidable and due to Occupier war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention - evidence of an Iraqi Genocide, an Afghan Genocide and a Somali Genocide (see “Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ).
4. A key part of this genocidal madness has been played by the racist Zionists who collaborated with the Nazis before and during the war (notoriously persuading Churchill to veto the Brand Plan to save 0.7 million Hungarian Jews of whom 0.4 million subsequently perished including all but a dozen of my family) (see “Brenner, Lenni. Exposing Zionist collaboration and complicity with the Nazis”: https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/brenner-lenni-exposing-zionist-collaboration-and-complicity-with-the-nazis ).
Since 1936 about 100,000 Palestinians have been violently killed as a result of racist Zionist colonization of their country (as compared to 3,700 Jews killed by Palestinians since 1920 according to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs) .
A further 1.9 million Palestinians have died avoidably from war-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation. Inspection of the latest UNICEF data reveals Apartheid Israel deliberately murders over 2,000 Palestinian infants each year (over 5 each day) by imposed deprivation. The race-based, racist Zionist-run Apartheid State of Israel is a democracy by genocide. Of about 12 million Palestinians only the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis (21% of the Israeli population, 13% of the 12 million Indigenous Palestinians) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus part of Lebanon and a near-completely ethnically cleansed part of Syria , albeit as third class citizens. 1.6 million Occupied Palestinians (half of them children) are abusively confined to what the Catholic Church has described as the Gaza Concentration Camp and 2.7 million Occupied Palestinians live under highly abusive military rule in ever-dwindling West Bank Bantustans. About 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even live in Palestine . There are 5.9 million Jewish Israelis and 0.3 million non-Jewish and non-Arab Israelis in this race-based Apartheid state (see “Palestinian Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/palestiniangenocide/ and “The Plight of the Palestinians”: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/4047-the-plight-of-the-palestinians.html ).
What should decent people do? Decent people - as exampled by anti-racist Jews (e.g. see "Jews Against Racist Zionism": https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/ ) – must do the following.
a) Demand that media inform everyone they can about the ongoing Muslim Holocaust peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity.
(b) Apply and urge sanctions against those people, parties, countries and corporations involved in the Muslim Holocaust, the Muslim Genocide and race-based, genocidal Apartheid Israel (see "Boycott Apartheid Israel": https://sites.google.com/site/boycottapartheidisrael/ ).
(c) Demand arraignment before the International Criminal Court of those principally involved in the Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide e.g. Bush, Obama, Blair, Brown, Cameron, Sarkozy, Merkel, Harper, Howard, Rudd, Gillard, the Apartheid Israeli leaders and their subordinates.
(d) Insist on the sidelining of racist Zionists from public life as has already happened to like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders and KKK.
Dr Gideon Polya has been teaching science students at a major Australian university for 4 decades. He published some 130 works in a 5 decade scientific career, most recently a huge pharmacological reference text "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds" (CRC Press/Taylor & Francis, New York & London , 2003). He has published “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ); see also his contributions “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007: http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/ockham/stories/s1445960.htm ) and “Ongoing Palestinian Genocide” in “The Plight of the Palestinians (edited by William Cook, Palgrave Macmillan, London, 2010: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/4047-the-plight-of-the-palestinians.html ). He has published a revised and updated 2008 version of his 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History” (see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ) as biofuel-, globalization- and climate-driven global food price increases threaten a greater famine catastrophe than the man-made famine in British-ruled India that killed 6-7 million Indians in the “forgotten” World War 2 Bengal Famine (see recent BBC broadcast involving Dr Polya, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and others:
