GenocideWatch.org writes on this subject: “The threat of destruction of a group must not be ignored because its numbers are small or its members disfavoured…’ The majority of ethno-European farmers are Boers. In world context, this may seem to be a small number of people…. however the smaller the minority, the more severe the bias against recognitioin of threats to the survival of minorities’…
“It may indeed be possible to exterminate a specific group over an extended period of time while the absolute number killed each year decreases, paradoxically creating a false impression of a diminishing annihilation – decreasing in annual numbers but resulting in undetected genocide’.

Genocide Watch writes: “The agricultural department of a bank in South Africa has calculated the per capita murder rate of ethno-European farmers to be four (4) times greater than the average murder rate for the population of South Africa (in 2002). Thus comparative trend analysis of murder rates for specific ethnic groups is troubling. If the per capita murder rate of the population as a whole has decreased over recent years as the South African government claims but at the same time the per capita murder rate of a specific group (in this case Boer farmers) has increased, it is reason for alarm’…

Political motives for farm-attacks:
Freedom Front Party candidates Pieter Blomerus van der Lith and wife Henna, murdered in farm attack on Nov 14 2010 , Zoutpansberg – nothing stolen:
On June 4 2011, the family of two murdered Freedom Front party candidates, Pieter Blomerus and Henna Van der Lith (killed Nov 15 2010), planted memorial crosses at the rapidly-growing Boer Genocide White Crosses Monument north of Pietersburg, to commemorate their murdered parents.
The murdered Boer couple and their worker were discovered by a man who had arrived to buy cattle-feed. The Van der Lith couple were tortured gruesomely – and there seemed no motive because nothing was robbed.
Beeld journalist Marietie Louw-Carstens quoted SAPS spokeswoman Lt.col. Ronel Otto as saying at the time that the triple-massacre probably took place over the weekend. Mr Van der Lith’s body was found tied up to water-pipes leading to the farm dam: his Toyota Land Cruiser still parked 20 metres away.
The triple-murders occurred about two weeks after the murders of working-class Afrikaner smallholders Johan and Annelise Greyvensteyn of Musina/Messina on 4 November. 2010 Their tortured bodies were found inside their bakkie on their smallholding. The Transvaal Agricultural Union’s spokeswoman Ms Marie Helm said at the time being “deeply shocked about the murders. Farmers were helping police in attempts to track the killers.”
