GENOCIDE WATCH UPGRADING SOUTH AFRICA TO RISK LEVEL SIX.
Juju on a roll, dear Reader? Or what about the following riddle:
When will Zimbabwe invade the Republic?
Answer: 2004. They already use our currency, their people are already here and Mugabe has found reincarnation in Julias.
That might be a bit too close for comfort, but even Moeletse Mbeki asked when our Tunisia moment will come. It might be here this week. Damned if he DOES NOT find Malema guilty, Zuma’s reign will be a lame duck untile he is ejected as the weak, multiply married, accused rapist and politically expedient member of the self-enrichment crew called the ANC.
Damned if he DOES proclaim Malema’s failings – the war cry may let slip the dogs of war and revolution. The National Demacratic Revolution, the call for the Freedom Charter to supercede the Constritution, for free land distribution, for ‘taking back everything the whites have stolen’, yea – we might as well start wearing those noce T-Shirts with BOER on the front and a target painted on trhe back. It’s here, its now and its inevitable.
The US Embassy has asked all US Citizens in the Republic to register - in case of forced evacuation. Pparantly 20,000 US troops now man the US Airforce base 70 km North of Gaberone (heading 121 degrees), and its being enlarged. See it on Google Earth:
1. Native blacks have been killing Afrikaner farmers at an alarming rate
Genocide Watch Upgrades South Africa to Risk Level Six
The independent watchdog organization Genocide Watch recently
genocide warning for the white population in South Africa from a
level five to a level six.
According to a paper by Genocide Watch President Gregory Stanton
titled “The Eight
Stages of Genocide,” risk level six is the level just before mass
Up until August 20 of this year, Genocide Watch categorized
the white population in
South Africa as being at a level-five risk of genocide. That
determination was largely
made because native blacks have been killing Afrikaner
farmers at an alarming rate.
Mandela traveled to Libya, where he awarded Muammar Gadhafi South Africa's highest medal of military honor. Both Mandela and Gadhafi have committed numerous terrorist acts. Mandela ordered the famous Church Street bombing, which went off at rush hour to maximize casualties of Afrikaner women, children and babies.
Indeed, more white farmers were murdered in South Africa
during 2009 alone than have
been killed in Zimbabwe since Robert Mugabe came to power.
Since the end of apartheid,
over 3,000 white farmers have been murdered,according to
the BBC. This figure
amounts to almost 7 percent of the total population of white
farmers in South Africa.
The recent upgrade to genocide risk level six was made in light
of recent calls by the
firebrand youth leader of the African National Congress (ANC)
to seize, without
compensation, white-owned farms and businesses. Many
political observers believe
that ANC seizures of white-owned farms and businesses could
spark violent clashes
between whites and blacks.
Youth leader Julius Malema and other prominent ANC
politicians have done little to
allay such fears by routinely singing such xenophobic
songs as the Zulu militaristic
anthem “Dubuli ‘Bhunu” (“Shoot the Boer”).
Genocide Watch labels genocide risk level six as “Preparation,”
the stage just before
level-seven “Extermination.” It is described in the following
paragraph: “Victims are
identified and separated out because of their ethnic or religious
identity. Death lists are
Members of victim groups are forced to wear identifying
symbols. Their property is
expropriated.They are often segregated into ghettos,
deported into concentration camps,
or confined to a famine-struck region and starved.
At this stage, a Genocide Emergency
must be declared.
Gregory Stanton writes: “Julius Malema must be removed as leader of the ANC Youth League. He is a violent Marxist-racist.” Clearly, South Africa is a nation bubbling over with racial tension and swiftly proceeding down the road toward Zimbabwe-style politics. Sadly, if the warnings coming from Genocide Watch are right, the same road could lead to Rwanda-style genocide
Levels 6, 7 and 8 are:
6. PREPARATION: Victims are identified and separated out because of their ethnic or religious identity. Death lists are drawn up. Members of victim groups are forced to wear identifying symbols. Their property is expropriated. They are often segregated into ghettoes, deported into concentration camps, or confined to a famine-struck region and starved. At this stage, a Genocide Emergency must be declared. If the political will of the great powers, regional alliances, or the U.N. Security Council can be mobilized, armed international intervention should be prepared, or heavy assistance provided to the victim group to prepare for its self-defense. Otherwise, at least humanitarian assistance should be organized by the U.N. and private relief groups for the inevitable tide of refugees to come.
7. EXTERMINATION begins, and quickly becomes the mass killing legally called “genocide.” It is “extermination” to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human. When it is sponsored by the state, the armed forces often work with militias to do the killing. Sometimes the genocide results in revenge killings by groups against each other, creating the downward whirlpool-like cycle of bilateral genocide (as in Burundi). At this stage, only rapid and overwhelming armed intervention can stop genocide. Real safe areas or refugee escape corridors should be established with heavily armed international protection. (An unsafe “safe” area is worse than none at all.) The U.N. Standing High Readiness Brigade, EU Rapid Response Force, or regional forces -- should be authorized to act by the U.N. Security Council if the genocide is small. For larger interventions, a multilateral force authorized by the U.N. should intervene. If the U.N. is paralyzed, regional alliances must act. It is time to recognize that the international responsibility to protect transcends the narrow interests of individual nation states. If strong nations will not provide troops to intervene directly, they should provide the airlift, equipment, and financial means necessary for regional states to intervene.
8. DENIAL is the eighth stage that always follows a genocide. It is among the surest indicators of further genocidal massacres. The perpetrators of genocide dig up the mass graves, burn the bodies, try to cover up the evidence and intimidate the witnesses. They deny that they committed any crimes, and often blame what happened on the victims. They block investigations of the crimes, and continue to govern until driven from power by force, when they flee into exile. There they remain with impunity, like Pol Pot or Idi Amin, unless they are captured and a tribunal is established to try them. The response to denial is punishment by an international tribunal or national courts. There the evidence can be heard, and the perpetrators punished. Tribunals like the Yugoslav or Rwanda Tribunals, or an international tribunal to try the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, or an International Criminal Court may not deter the worst genocidal killers. But with the political will to arrest and prosecute them, some may be brought to justice.
