On Target

7 May 1982. Thought for the Week: "Twentieth century history, as recorded in Establishment textbooks and journals, is inaccurate. It is a history which has been based solely upon those official documents which various administrations have seen fit to release for public consumption."
Dr. Antony Sutton, in "Wall Street & the Rise of Hitler.

VIOLENT NEW ZEALAND TOUR

Describing himself as "bloodied but unbowed", Mr. Eric Butler passed through Melbourne last week on his way to a special Church Seminar in Adelaide, following an incredible three-weeks tour of New Zealand. All major meetings had to have large-scale police protection, with the forces of revolution making one last major effort at disruption at the last meeting, in Christchurch. With Christchurch's most prestigious hotel canceling the League of Rights meeting following threats, a last minute change of venue had to be arranged.

In a hard-hitting media conference late in the afternoon of the Christchurch meeting, Mr. Butler said that sections of the media had much to answer for in the manner in which they had encouraged the violent anti-League of Rights tour in the same way that they had encouraged violence during the Springbok tour. One editorial in "The Star" was the most disgraceful example of journalism he had ever seen. It has joined in the orchestrated cry for the resignation of the New Zealand Minister for Police and Maori Affairs, Mr. Ben Couch, because he had attended one of Mr. Butler's meetings and proposed the vote of thanks. Worse than this, he had put a donation in the plate when it was passed around.
Mr. Butler said that an editorial writer who could describe the League of Rights as "Fascist" - this being the most kindly thing which could be said about the League - was clearly a political illiterate who did not know that Fascism, Nazism and Communism were like peas from the same philosophical pod.

Mr. Butler charged at his Christchurch media conference that time and time again as police either removed demonstrates from his meetings, or prevented them from breaking in, the media asked the question. "What are your impressions of all this." Mr. Butler said, "Rarely was I asked what I was trying to say." This attack apparently stung some of the media with several reasonable radio and press reports on what he said at the Christchurch meeting.

Mr. Butler said in Melbourne that the New Zealand tour had highlighted the fact that a disintegrating economic system, resulting in large numbers of young, miseducated and brainwashed young people who could not be constructively employed, together with consequent political instability, was making violence and revolution a certainty. He instanced a New Zealand spokesman who said it was no longer a question of if New Zealand would experience the terrorism of other countries, but when.
Mr. Butler said in Melbourne that while the tour had been torrid and trying, it had opened the eyes of large numbers of people to the realities of the deepening crisis and the hope the League provided.

Some of the media coverage was good and he was invited to do a feature article for the weekly Sunday paper, "The New Zealand Times." Most of the police attending expressed keen interest, not only in what Mr. Butler had to say but also in literature. A feature of the tour had been the holding of New Zealand's first Anti-Subversion schools. Literature sales were excellent and many new subscriptions to League journals obtained.

Mr. Butler said that Mr. David Thompson's young assistant, Mr. Bill Daley, who had chaired many of his meetings and accompanied him on the tour, was a "credit to himself and his Christian Faith. He stood up like a veteran and handled some ugly situations extremely well."
Mr. Butler will be speaking at the Queensland Annual Dinner and Seminar before conducting an extensive tour of Queensland. He anticipates, hopefully, a quieter tour than the New Zealand one!


THREAT OF BILINGUALISM NOW EMERGING IN AUSTRALIA

"The Federal Government has taken a radical step towards identifying and adopting a second language to be spoken in Australia". - The Australian, May 3rd.

In our On Target Bulletin of April 8th, we sounded the warning given to us by an official of the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic Review. We repeat from the quote of that issue:
"The promotion of a multi-lingual or a bi-lingual society can be stopped fast; by having English declared AUSTRALIA'S OFFICIAL LANGUAGE. Perhaps some supporters considered, at the time, that this warning was somewhat exaggerated. We can assure supporters that this issue is not at all exaggerated, and that subversives are pushing like mad, behind the scenes, to at least, in these early stages, have the principle of multi-lingualism in Australia gain community acceptance. This should be linked with the moves within the Victorian Education Department, and no doubt other State Departments of Education (it will be synchronised like a gearbox!) to have English, as a compulsory High school subject, dropped. Certainly for H.S.C.

It's all of some subtlety: but not that subtle. The strategy is to break down comprehension, fluency, and appreciation of the English language in the rising generation of Australians, along with the promotion of one or more other languages. This is a diabolically clever way to fragment any society. The promotion and extension of bi-lingualism in Canada, for example, is causing divisions in that nation: we seem to be hell bent on even extending fragmentation in Australia.

Needless to say, Mr. Ian Macphee, the present Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs, is all for it; as no doubt is Mr. Al Grassby, whose father and grandfather were Chileans. As the matter is to be referred to a Senate inquiry, this gives us a starting point for action. Those Australians, who wish to learn another language for reasons of commerce, or just culture, are easily able to do so. There are colleges for language studies everywhere. The real purpose of the above is not the enrichment of culture; it is for political and social fragmentation; even if our politicians are incapable of understanding this. We again express our thanks to the Editor of the Anglo-Saxon Keltic Review, Box 186 Sandy Bay, Tasmania, 7005, for the early warnings. No doubt many supporters will wish to do likewise.


BRIEF COMMENTS

A league actionist in Philadelphia (Yes, U.S.A.) has sent us some juicy tidbits from the Wall Street Journal (April 15th). In the Letters to the Editor column there is one from a "Ronald Hilton", of the California Institute of International Studies, Stanford, California. He condemns the "try on" by Argentina in the Falklands, and from his letter, we quote:
"All around the world countries with territorial claims would feel that they could act with impunity. Worse still, the U.S. plan for (South Atlantic Treaty Organisation) would be sunk, and the Soviet Union would enjoy 'fishing' rights in islands controlling the entrance to the Straits of Magellan and the route around Cape Horn, the passage between the Atlantic and the Pacific."

In an article on "International Terrorism and Double Standards", a writer, Alexander Cockburn, writes of the involvement of Mossad, the Israeli Secret Service, with terrorism in Italy. Nothing like this would get into the Australian print media: we quote from Cockburn's article (same issue of the "W.S.J."): "Experts on terrorism leap hungrily on every morsel linking Palestinians, the P.L.O., the Libyans, the Red Brigades, and so forth in international conspiracy. Silence in this country greeted the final summing up of the Rome Court of Assize last year of the circumstances surrounding the murder of the Palestinian, Wa'el Zu'aiter, in Rome in 1972. On the account of the Italian journalist, Livia Rokach, the court found the assassination to have been carried out by 'an organisation belonging to the State of Israel', which, 'is a complex, powerful and threatening organisation', which has 'unlawful preset objectives' and constitutes a 'threat to law and order'. There has been further silence about reports in Italy of overtures made by the Mossad to the Red Brigades in 1973 and 1977."

John Bennett is a name well known to readers of League journals. In The Age (Melbourne) April 20th, he is quoted as stating that the Australian media are almost daily inciting racial hatred against people of German extraction. Mr. John Bennett has written to the Commissioner for Community Relations, Mr. Al Grassby, asking what action will be taken to curb anti-German propaganda". Mr. Bennett points out that many films shown on Australian television are loaded with anti-German bias. Some Are: "The Boys from Brazil", "The Night of the Generals", "Hogan's Heroes", and "Holocaust". Mr. John Bennett is an Australian representative of the Institute of Historical Review, and is on the Editorial Advisory Committee of the Journal of Historical Review. We advise that some copies of Volume Three, Number One, of the Journal of Historical Review are now available. Price: $6.00 from all League offices, posted.

Mr. Douglas Wilkie, veteran current affairs columnist for The Sun (Melbourne) adds from his vast knowledge of foreign affairs to the Falklands "debate". In his column (May 3rd) he comments that Argentina, a third-rate power, gambled that Britain, a still formidable second-rate power, would not "come plunging through ten thousand miles of stormy sea to reassert its 150-year occupancy of a barren sheep-run." Mr. Wilkie writes off the United Nations: "as if there was a single example, outside the Congo, of the U.N. ever being able to negotiate, far less enforce an end to armed conflict." Those supporters who have not read "The Fearful Master", by G. Edward Griffin, by doing so, will gain an understanding of the UN's horrible record in the Congo in 1960. Price: $4.50 from all League offices.
Mr. Wilkie touches on the point that we fear greatly: we have already commented on this: "The only visible alternative to today's fascist junta at Buenos Aires is not democracy, but a return to maverick Leftwing Peronism". The issue of military strategy, involving the Soviet, is raised, but that is dealt with competently, and at greater length, in a letter, which we shall reprint in On Target Bulletin this issue. Some supporters have already mentioned the matter of Antartica: this is also dealt with in an excellent letter mentioned above.

The Russian Menace Is Closer Than You Think
The following letter, under this heading, was published in The Australian, May 1st: "Over this Anzac weekend we have had the opportunity to look back at the past and the men who lost their lives while maintaining Australia's freedom. One hopes that such a sacrifice of lives may not be necessary again. Yet the risk of it may be closer to Australia than we think. "As Great Britain moves to regain sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, we need to consider the consequences of Argentina gaining permanent sovereignty over the Islands. "Argentina is close to becoming economically dependent on Russia. From a position of economic strength, Russia will seek military bases in Argentina. Should Britain relinquish sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, Russia will be able to establish undisputed control over the shipping routes around Cape Horn and eventually over Antartica.
"From the time that Russia has air base facilities in either Argentina or the Falkland Islands, it will be possible for Russia to attack Australia (our emphasis) without over flying potentially hostile countries. "Although a distance of 6,000 (six thousand) miles, with in-flight refueling, Russian bombers and troop carriers could attack Melbourne by over flying the Antartic.
"Along with Australia and New Zealand, Great Britain claims sovereignty over part of Antartica. That area is known as the Falkland Island Dependencies and includes South Georgia Island. A successful Argentinian claim to the Falkland Islands will almost certainly mean a successful claim to the Falkland Island Dependencies.
"Neither the U.S. nor Russia recognises any claims to sovereignty over Antartica. When the Antartic Treaty expires in the not-too-distant future, Australian territorial claims will be ignored by both those countries. "Russia has six bases (compared to Australia's three) in Australian Antartic Territory. It would be easy for Russia, using troops experienced in Artic conditions, to seize the territory that Australia claims sovereignty over. With military bases in the Antartic, Russia would be a major threat to Australian and New Zealand security. "Historically, Russia has moved into areas vacated by former colonial powers. Her next move may place the security of Australia and New Zealand in jeopardy."
This letter appeared above the name of a "Peter W. Hall", of Indooroopilly, Queensland.
