27 February 1987. Thought for the Week: "The attack on personal property, which superficially would appear to proceed from the less fortunate strata of society, would never have become effective had it not been a perfect tool for the transfer of real property, both territorial and industrial, from the individual to the financial institution.

A WARNING TO SIR JOH
On page two of this week's On Target we publish a photocopied article by Katharine West, in last weekend's Australian. As Katharine West has been a consistent supporter of Sir Joh for some time, this article is of special significance at present. We share Katharine West's fears about the Queensland Premier becoming unduly influenced by those providing large sums of money. Sir Joh's potential to shift Australia off the disaster course on which it is now travelling, has been carefully assessed in the higher echelons of power and, as has happened time and time again throughout history, those exercising this type of power are always prepared to attempt to hi-jack a popular movement and to then subvert it.
Already there are ominous signs of powerful groups preparing to try to jump on the Sir Joh bandwagon, which is now obviously rolling across Australia with growing momentum. For example, Tim Duncan writing in The Bulletin of February 24th provides a list of prominent, wealthy Melbourne Zionist supporters who are preparing to meet with Sir Joh when he is in Melbourne in April. Many of these have been closely linked with Hawke through the Jewish community. But there has been an obvious cooling of Zionist enthusiasm about Prime Minister Hawke since his recent trip to the Middle East, where he met with representatives of the Palestinians and subsequently recommended to Israeli Prime Minister Shamir that Israel should meet with Palestinian representatives. Shamir was extremely cool to the Hawke proposal and has subsequently attacked any suggestion of peace negotiations.
Tim Duncan confirms our own information that many of the Melbourne business empires are not over enthusiastic about the Liberal Party, although this attitude may change if Andrew Peacock is restored as Liberal leader. League campaigners "in the field" report that the "Joh factor" is progressively increasing and there appears to be little doubt now that the Coalition is doomed and that Sir Joh has scored a major success by forcing the National Party Members to start backing away from support for Mr. John Howard's consumption tax, even though the National Party had originally supported the concept of a consumption tax. This in turn is clearly having its effect inside the Liberal Party.
There is no doubt that the Queensland Premier has in a very short time had a most devastating impact on Australian politics, jolting the complacency of many of the professional party hacks of all parties. But much more than this is required to ensure that the Sir Joh factor is not skillfully exploited and a most promising grassroots movement destroyed. This is why it is urgently essential for the ordinary Australians mentioned by Katharine West to join together to support the type of survival programme which the League has found meets with the warm approval of a wide cross section of the Australian people.
The proposal, which gains the biggest support, is that of an insertion in the Constitution of the right of the people to petition for a referendum to veto any legislation they do not like. With the right to veto unwanted legislation, the Australian people could stop the present disastrous immigration policy and check excessive taxation imposts. We have not the slightest doubt that if Sir Joh put himself at the head of the type of survival programme we have outlined, he would sweep the country and go down in history as one of the greatest statesmen Australia has ever produced. Katharine West is right: "The ball is now in Joh's court."

FINANCE ESSENTIAL TO KEEP CAMPAIGN ROLLINGThe League is now moving into top gear, as 1987 gets under way. National Director Eric Butler has given a series of strategy lectures throughout Victoria, and this week has moved through South Australia, returning via the Victorian Wimmera and Mallee. Assistant National Director, Jeremy Lee, has been addressing packed meetings in Northern NSW and Southern Queensland, with nearly 1000 people present at one meeting.
NSW State Director David Thompson leaves shortly for major tour of Western Australia. Queensland State Director Chas Pinwill will be moving south in April, concentrating on a series of Seminars to provide in depth understanding of finance economics. Jeremy Lee will also be moving south in April. A massive educational programme is planned for this critical year. The League is moving on all fronts. But adequate finance must be provided. The Basic Fund of $55,000. (the absolute minimum required MUST be provided. Since our last report 13 supporters have contributed $2,130.00, taking the grand total to $49,008. Can we hear immediately from the majority who have not yet contributed.
SOME AMERICANS UNDERSTAND SOUTH AFRICA SITUATION : "U.C.A. NEWS
(United Christian Action) P.O.Box 35 737,0102 Menlo Park, South Africa, republishes the October 1986 Open Letter to the South African State President, P.W.Botha by U.S. policy analyst, Donald McAlvany. This, in turn, was re-published in "The Review", quarterly journal of the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic Society, P.O.Box 187, Sandy Bay, Tasmania, 7005. The whole Open Letter is well worth re-publishing, but limitations of space prevent this: we select only excerpts:
"By now you must have concluded, as
many of your conservative friends in America have been warning
your Government for years, that the Government of the United
States (but not its people) is your deadly enemy. The intent
of the recently passed sanctions Bill, and indeed the efforts
of the U.S. State Department, is to overthrow your Government
and replace it with a pro-Soviet/African National Congress
Government. No amount of racial reform of movement towards
a multiracial government will satisfy your enemies in the
U.S.Congress, State Department, media, the academia, and America's
liberal eastern establishment, anymore than a black moderate
government freely elected in Zimbabwe/Rhodesia in 1979 satisfied
them. The sanctions against that beleaguered government were
not lifted until a communist government under Robert Mugabe
South Africa's Friends & Enemies in
America "The great majority of Americans are ignorant
of the true nature of developments in South Africa and Southern
Africa; deliberately kept in the dark by their liberal U.S.
media and the U.S.Government. The majority of Americans not
only know next to nothing about Africa or South Africa; they
know virtually nothing about foreign policy or global geopolitics.
They know nothing about their Government's own role in overthrowing
Chiang Kai Shek in the late 40s and establishing Mao Tse Tung
in power; of its role in overthrowing Batista in the late
1950s and establishing Fidel Castro in power; of its role
in the late '70s of overthrowing the Shah, Somoza, Ian Smith
(and then Bishop Muzowera and establishing Khomeini, the Sandinistas,
and Mugabe in power in Iran, Nicaragua, and Zimbabwe respectively.
The great majority of Black Americans have been manipulated into hatred (albeit, emotional and sincerely misguided) of the existing order in South Africa, through over a decade of brainwashing and propaganda that has erroneously equated the racial situation in South Africa with their own civil rights struggle in the U.S. in the late 1960s. The American left, via the media, the Black churches, and Black liberal/left leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Ron Dellums, Walter Fountroy, Coretta King, etc., have attempted to take American Blacks' eyes off their own problems (i.e. high unemployment, massive Black illegitimate births - over half of all U.S. Black births; massive Black drug and crime problems in the ghettos of America, etc.) These Black liberal/ left leaders such as Jesse Jackson have had to have an emotional issue around which they could rally their black constituents and build a national power base. The 'plight of the South African Blacks' has become that issue. Indeed, since they have been able to do little or nothing about U.S. Black problems over the past decade or two, the South African 'struggle for equal rights' has become a useful diversion for America's Black liberal/left leaders..."
