In his article New Evidence Proves Israel Attacked USS Liberty With Orders to Kill 294 Americans (reprinted at Global Research) Aaron Nelson writes:
“Fresh evidence presented in an exclusive Al Jazeera investigation into the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 Americans proves the incident was not a mistake. Since 1967 the ‘official story‘ has been that Israel simply misidentified the American ship as Egyptian for several hours. Israel apologized to the United States and for several decades we’ve been led to believe that this could be the only explanation for why Israeli jets and torpedo boats would launch rockets, missiles and torpedoes at an American target for more than two hours.
“A new documentary called ‘The Day Israel Attacked America’ airing on Al Jazeera was produced and directed by award winning British film maker Richard Belfield. Thanks to the audio evidence obtained by Belfield, it is finally possible to prove the survivors of the attack on the USS Liberty were right all along. The survivors have always been extremely confident that Israel’s intentions were to sink that ship and kill everyone on board so Egypt could be blamed for the tragedy. Why? To convince President Lyndon Johnson (and the American public) that we needed to declare war on Egypt. This is the definition of a ‘false flag‘. (can you say 9/11?)”
Despite conspiring with Zionist and militarist Americans to murder 294 Americans in 1967 and almost 3,000 Americans on 9/11, Israel has been far more merciful to Americans than to Palestinians. The Zionist assault on Palestine has killed about 2.2 million Palestinians—100,000 directly, the other 2.1 million from imposed deprivation—according to Dr. Gideon Polya, retired science professor from La Trobe University of Melbourne, Australia. Below is Dr. Polya’s recent communiqué.
Palestinian Genocide Has Killed 2.2 Million
Email from Dr. Gideon Polya
Dear Kevin, Below is a detailed and documented analysis of the Palestinian deaths from violence or deprivation in the post-1914 Palestinian Genocide (1914-2019). Please transmit this to everyone you can. Best regards, Gideon
I have estimated that 2.2 million Palestinian have died from violence, 0.1 million, or from imposed deprivation, 2.1 million, since the British invasion of the Ottoman Empire in 1914 in WW1. The details are set out below in a 2019 update on the ongoing Palestinian Genocide .
In 1880 there were about 500,000 Arab Palestinians and about 25,000 Jews living in Palestine of whom half were immigrants [2, 3]. The genocidally racist British invaders and genocidally racist Zionist colonizers have been variously responsible for a Palestinian Genocide involving successive mass expulsions (800,000 in 1948 and 400,00 Arabs in 1967) , ethnic cleansing of 90% of the land of Palestine and an estimated 2.2 million Palestinian deaths since 1914 from violence (0.1 million) or from violently-imposed deprivation (2.1 million) [1, 4-7].
There are now 7 million Palestinian refugees, and of 14 million Palestinians (half of them children, three quarters women and children) about 50% are forbidden to even step foot in their own country on pain of death, only 1.9 million Palestinian Israelis are permitted to vote for the government ruling all of the former Mandated Palestine, and 5 million Palestinians have zero human rights  as Occupied Palestinians in West Bank ghettoes or Bantustans (3 million) or in the Gaza Concentration Camp (2.0 million). However the “lucky” Israeli Palestinians are Third Class citizens subject to over 60 Nazi-style, race-based laws [9, 10].
The land of Palestine has now been 90% ethnically cleansed [1, 4-7]. While Indigenous Palestinians represent 50% of Apartheid Israeli subjects, nearly three quarters cannot vote for the government ruling them – egregious Apartheid that is declared by the UN to be a crime against Humanity .
The human death toll in the Palestinian Genocide is set out below.
(1). Violent Palestinian deaths since 1920 add up to about 0.1 million .
(2). About 0.1 million Palestinians died in a WW1 Palestinian Famine associated with British-imposed war and as assessed from a marked demographic deficit of 0.1 million in WW1 (1914-1918) [2, 3].
(3) The Palestinian population was 689,000 in 1918 and 1,308,000 in 1946 for an average of 1,000,000. Assuming the same avoidable mortality in brutally British-occupied Palestine (famine, displacement of tenant farmers, violence, invasion and misrule by genocidal racists) as in pre-Independence, British-occupied India (an average of 30 avoidable deaths from deprivation per thousand of population per year, 1920-1947) , this yields 1,000 thousand x (30 avoidable deaths per thousand per year) x 30 years = 900,000 avoidable deaths in the period 1918-1948
(4). The total Palestinian population (inside and outside Palestine) was 2,250,000 in 1948 and 7,574,000 in 2000 for an average of 4,912,000. Generously applying the post-Independence Indian avoidable mortality rate in 2003 of 3.5 avoidable deaths per thousand of population per year  to Palestinians yields 4,912 thousand x (3.5 avoidable deaths per thousand per year) x 52 years = 894,000 Palestinian avoidable deaths from deprivation in the period 1948-2000.
(5) The per capita GDP for 5 million Occupied Palestinians is US$3,000 as compared to US$40,000 for Israelis . Poverty kills, and for impoverished, high birth rate countries the avoidable deaths are 1.4 times the under-5 infant deaths . In circa 2010 about 3,000 under-5 year old Palestinian infants died each year, this indicating that this century an average of 4,200 Occupied Palestinians died avoidably from deprivation each year, 12,000 Palestinians as a whole died thus each year, and 0.23 million died thus this century.
Thus one can estimate 900,000 + 894,000 + 230,000 = 2,024,000 Palestinian avoidable deaths from deprivation in the period 1918-2019, with a further 0.1 million dying in the WW1 Palestinian Famine and 0.1 million violent Palestinian deaths. Thus while only 4,000 Zionists were killed by Palestinians in the period 1920-2019 [16-20], since the British of the Middle East in 1914 about 2.2 million Palestinians have died from violence, 0.1 million, or from imposed deprivation, 2.1 million.
The total number of violent and non-violent avoidable deaths from deprivation in the Palestinian Genocide (2.2 million) is of same order of magnitude as the number of victims of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million killed by violence or imposed deprivation) [21-23].
