As homicide is the murder of a person, genocide is the murder of an ethnicity or the extinction of any human group sharing a genetic or ancestral affinity. Another trendy term for this is 'ethnic cleansing'. Examples of genocides includes the disappearance of the neanderthals, the murder of all aboriginal Tazmanians, many aboriginal American tribes, and almost every indigenous population of the middle east 1200 years ago. Technically, the Holocaust was an attempted genocide, as - thankfully - Hitler and the 'ordinary Germans' failed; colloquially, the term is also applied to attempts - especially if those attempts are well organized and systematic - or significant trends toward extinction.

What was the largest ethnic cleansing campaign in the history of this planet?
For several centuries after its advent, Islam was an alibi for Arab imperialism. And it was an imperialism of a type which the world had not known so far. The Arabs not only imposed their ruthless rule and totalitarian creed on the countries they conquered; they also populated these countries with a prolific progeny whch they procreated on native women. Every Arab worth his race 'married' scores, sometimes hundreds of these helpless women after their menfolk had all been killed. Divorce of a wedded wife had been made very easy by the 'law' of Islam. A man could go on marrying and divorcing at the rate of several women during the span of a single day and night. What was more convenient, there was no restriction on the number of concubines a man could keep. The Arab Conquerors used these male privileges in full measure. And in a matter of a hundred years, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Egypt and North Africa which had been non-Arab countries for countless ages became Arabic-speaking countries. Arabic did not spread like English, French or other similar languages that spread through commercial and diplomatic excellence of the lending nation and filtered through the top strata of the receiving: countries. Arabic was injected through all strata of the conquered population which did not have much choice in the matter. Thus we have a series of countries that are 'Arabic' in race, culture and language extending from Iraq to Morocco. Conversion was not confined to creed alone, it covered one's ancestry as well.

Where does one find the signs of future genocide?
"This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades."
by Azzam Pasha, Secretary General of the Arab League, in anticipation of victory over the new Jewish microstate in 1948 by the 5 invading Arab armies.
What can be done to help prevent genocide?
Class action suit to prevent genocide:
by Emanuel A. Winston - Middle East analyst & commentator
Our nation's leaders have accumulated a record of selling its citizens and allies to special interests for the highest price obtainable. Yes...I am talking about some of our Presidents and, specifically, about the unprincipled US State Department over decades.
Presently, President Clinton and the US State Department have embarked upon a program to sell Israel to the oil-rich Arab nations in trade for smooth and lucrative commerce. This program, half of which is in the black (covert) area, is to deliver Israel via stepped down phases so that, in the near future, it can be absorbed by the surrounding Arab nations. Many financial and political interests are involved for monetary gain. These powerful interests can and have reached out to co-opt the media, multi-national corporations and the Congress. All of this comes out of the rubric "Land for Peace".
To implement Genocide an aggressor must have co-conspirators who assist the aggressor in many ways to plan and finally carry out the killings.
I ask the reader to read, save and think about the following because, as it says in the Constitution: "It is we, the people, who are the interested parties."
For the following reasons I propose a class action suit against the US Government, the US State Department, accessories in the media, corporations and multi-national corporations and such entities that have become knowing accomplices to the Government in assisting in the weakening of Israel in preparation for Genocide - also known as Jihad. Each may have a separate reason to assault Israel with extreme prejudice but, bottom line, it adds up to Genocide.
We, therefore, charge the US government and the US State Department with knowingly aiding and abetting Genocide against the Jewish people of Israel. Further, as stated in the Nuremberg Convention which requires citizens of every country to resist the call to Genocide by their country, I offer that resistance and ask you to join me.
This charge is not theory or the "What If" syndrome. This charge is based on numerous layers of irrefutable fact: The question as to whether the Arab nations intend Genocide stands on the bedrock of fact and documented history...Past and Present.
During the World War II years the Arab nations and their leaders sided with the Nazis against the Allies. Jews were routinely attacked by the Arabs. Their attitude may be epitomized by Haj Amin Al Husseini, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who sat in Berlin with Hitler, where he requested that Hitler bring his "Jewish Solution" with his well-oiled killing machine to kill all the Palestinian Jews he could find. The explicit term is "Genocide".
Today, the Mufti's nephew Faisel Husseini runs the Palestinian Authority's Jerusalem office illegally at Orient House. His other relative, Yasir Arafat, still runs the PLO and Hamas as the "President" of the Neo-State of Palestine, in formation. They are only two of the Grand Mufti's spiritual repositories and the continuation of his plans to "ethnically cleanse" Jerusalem and Israel of all Jews. In this case, the past is still the present.
This class action suit should be undertaken by US citizens, both Jews and Christians. Where law allows, third parties, including victims of Arab terrorism and their families, Jewish citizens of Israel, Jewish and Christian organizations et al should be allowed to join the suit as friends of the court.
The suit should name the office of the President including President Clinton and former President Bush, the US State Department (with specifically named defendants) leading media sources as the NEW YORK TIMES, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, major TV and radio news networks, CNN, NPR, multi-national corporations and any other entities, persons or interests who have acted individually or in concert to deprive or threaten Israeli citizens of their right to life and liberty.
Since the re-establishment of the State of Israel, the Arab nations have called for the destruction of the Jewish State. Statements by their leaders, Fatwas (Muslim degrees) issued by the leading Muslim clerics stated specifically that Jihad was a permanent state of war with the Jews who were to be driven into the sea - in other words, Genocide.
They went on to demonstrate their intentions through six wars and one long, unending 'low intensity' war, called terrorism. Had Israel lost any one war, the Arabs would have matched the Genocide of the Germans who had received cooperation from many of the European nations. Wars and Arab terrorism claimed 20,000 Jewish lives, plus hundreds of thousands wounded, many maimed for life. In terms of the United States population that would be 7 million dead Americans. This state of war exists today and is well known to the leaders of the world's nations.
Yassir Arafat, in cooperation with Saddam of Iraq, the Ayatollahs of Iran, Assad of Syria, Kaddafi of Libya, Egyptian Presidents - financed by support of Saudi Arabia with other oil and Muslim States - murdered Jews, Americans and their own Arab people. Their oft-stated intention is to make all of Israel Judenrein (free of Jews). The State Department and President's office received a tape of Yassir Arafat ordering the executions of American Ambassador Cleo Noel, Jr., his aide and the Belgium Ambassador in Khartoum. For reasons of politics, Arafat was not accused, indicted or tried by the US government.
Arafat was directly responsible for the murders of the school children at Ma'alot, the eleven Israeli athletes at Munich, the killing of American citizens (Klinghoffer on the Achille Lauro). This is only a short list of the terrorist operations ordered by Arafat. At least eleven Americans have been killed by Palestinian terrorism since the Oslo Accords were signed. Even the now moribund "Land for Peace" Oslo contract failed to deliver cessation of terror. Almost 300 Israelis have been murdered and thousands wounded, some maimed for life, since the White House signing of Oslo September 1993.
Our US Presidents and US State Department, closely connected to multi-national oil power brokers have insisted that Israel divest herself of defensive territories and vital water as appeasement to Arab client states. The high ground was to be given up despite a study done by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff June 29, 1967 under Gen. Earl Wheeler detailing the minimum territory Israel required "in order to permit defense against possible conventional Arab attack," which included: "the Golan Heights, several sections of Sinai, the Gaza Strip" and all the land west of a "defense line along the axis of Bardala-Tubas-Nablus-Bira-Jerusalem," (this being more than half of Samaria, contiguous with a thickening of the Jerusalem corridor), "and all of Judea south of Jerusalem." This report was considered so explosive and so contrary to State Department policy, it was stamped Top Secret until the Wall St. Journal revealed it in 1983.
Yassir Arafat has made daily speeches recorded on video and audiotape demanding "all of Israel as the New State of Palestine with Jerusalem as the capital of that state and only that state and whoever doesn't like can go drink Gaza sea water". In the face of those proclamations our Presidents insisted that Israel further weaken itself through unreciprocated territorial concessions and prompted First Lady Hilary to call for a Palestinian State. By all measurements, Yassir Arafat is a world class war criminal and should be so charged within the class action suit proposed herein. This evidence is piled up on the desk of the President, State Department, CIA, NSA, denials notwithstanding.
This overwhelming mass of evidence both in statements and practice proves that our government has knowingly entered into a conspiracy with the Arabs to assist in their pledged Genocide of Israel. It does not matter that they will say in their defense that they were doing it for the national interest (oil profits), the facts of complicity in planned Genocide speak for themselves.
We, the American people, are not murderers nor do we wish to aid and abet murders simply because money will flow into our corporations or political coffers. It is true that some of our elect and those they appoint have acted as a 'Shadow Government' without the knowledge and/or permission of the American people or its Congress. We have seen our Presidents engage in illegal covert operations, the selling of major weapons' systems to dictators. It's time to draw the line.
What can we do?
You, the reader, may have access to legal assistance in the form of Constitutional and International law firms. You may be fortunate to have amassed some wealth with the blessings of HaShem or you may have direct access to members of Congress. This is your fight, whether Christian or Jew. We are on the threshold of seeing Israel ripped apart as an appeasement to Arab dictators and radical clerics of Islam. We observe our own US Government and special interests aiding and abetting a Genocide which is now in the making and beyond question.
After the killing begins, do not say: "I really didn't know it was going to happen", as it happened in WWII. If you have resources, influence, energy enough to save a people and their nation, then do it NOW! Call your Rabbi, Pastor, Congressman or woman, religious and secular institutions and organizations to demand a meeting. Force them to act and do not accept misleading speeches of peace being just over the horizon when there is no peace.
The Jewish people are experts in dying at the hands of those who wish Jews to either be absorbed or eliminated. Genocide is not new for us but that doesn't mean that the decent people of the Nations are to remain silent as their governments assist in Genocide - again.
