The Brown – Stigler Incident. War and Humanity.

The Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident occurred on 20 December 1943, when, after a successful bomb run on Bremen, 2nd Lt. Charles “Charlie” Brown’s B-17F Flying Fortress Ye Olde Pub of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) was severely damaged by German fighters. Luftwaffe pilot Franz Stigler had the opportunity to shoot down the crippled bomber but did not do so, and instead escorted it over and past German-occupied territory so as to protect it. After an extensive search by Brown, the two pilots met each other 50 years later and developed a friendship that lasted until Stigler’s death in March 2008. Brown died only a few months later, in November of the same year.[1][2]

Posted by Save Humanity on Sunday, November 29, 2015

What makes me sick is all the Anti-refugee mongers who call this desperate bid for safety… ‘an invasion’.
It’s a typical ploy to justify their cold hearted cowardice and bigotry… and preference for the millions of displaced people to Die at their gate rather than face the troubles that come with granting these people refuge.

Recent events in Europe regarding Gangs of migrants molesting woman are of course very disturbing for any civilised human being… including most migrants, yet of course there exists that massive Faction of Far Right extremists who …. being the complete Fascist Racist Barbarians that they are… use these incidents as an excuse to run rampant and vent their hatred upon anyone that is not the same colour as they are… destroying Kabab shops etc, owned by people who have had nothing to do with the troubles.

This is Collectivism at it’s finest!
Tribalism… in which the rationale is that it is ok to blame *all members* of any hated demographic for the crimes of a small minority of their members.

And Recent media sensationalism tends to promote the Alarm without balance.
By Balance I am not simply referring to One eyed reporting that never seems to give room in their articles for migrants to express *Their outrage and disgust* for the activities of the delinquent migrants… giving the impression that they all think and act the same way.
On top of this nobody ever balances the problems Europe faces with it’s refugees with what the alternatives would be like if they had refused refuge… The absolute carnage, and chaos.

Though the situation is dire… and Lawlessness is brewwing, It is my firm belief that these troubles are far far less than would be faced if these Masses of desperate people had been locked out.

My point being *The Crisis was/is Real*… and because Shit is hitting the fan… one way or another it was never going to be an easy road… an easy solution!
So without appreciating this and keeping this reality at the forefront of our minds, The anti-refugee propaganda is able to paint the benevolence of people like Angela Merkel, and the Germans who supported her as being a tremendous mistake… wooly headed foolishness…. treachery even.

As an insulated observer from afar, I still face moral dilemmas in my vocal support for the Refugees in Europe because it is not My wife… my daughters who are endangered by these gangs of drunken deviant Migrant men.
The conundrum being for people like myself is that we can either be Vocal advocates on behalf of the Plight of the refugees, or Vocal Fearmongers highlighting the danger many Muslim men pose to woman, or We could simply remain silent.
Yet still no matter what position we choose… we remain isolated and to a large extent, not intimately affected by what is happening.
I have chosen to support the Refugees because I believe their plight is the greatest, and their need for heroic humanitarianism the most acute, and that silence in the face of Children being Bombed, and washing up on beaches to be almost as reprehensible as the bigotry that willfully turns a blind eye.

I understand the issues regarding the dangers of a large influx of un-vetted migrants… esp from Islamic nations with customs and mentalities that are backwards and oppressive by Western liberal standards,and I under ordinary circumstances, I would never expect nations to allow it without some rudimentary process by which they agree that their entry and stay is conditional to their peaceful and respectful behavior… yet because of the humanitarian crisis which required a brave and humane response…. such a process simply was not possible.
This means the process must be systematically done *Now*… with all Refugees whom have entered Europe… weeding out those whom display threatening characteristics.
Failure by the authorities to keep the peace and control the trouble makers will result in even more violence against innocent parties… of both Citizens and migrants.

I will not delude myself about the powder keg that blow up at any moment, not simply because of the uncivilized attitude of these migrant gangs towards woman, but also because of Gangs the Fascist Right.
*Both these factions* generate more hatred, violence, and multiply the numbers of innocent victims.
All the while Isis Laughs…. and spreads its wings.

Read this>>> Germany biker gangs are defending the honor of German women by beating the living hell out of ‘muslim’ refugees

And this >>> Terrifying echoes of Kristallnacht: Mayor condemns ‘naked violence’ after far-right thugs rampage through streets of Germany smashing windows of kebab shops

Two more problems in Western democracies which make it harder and more dangerous to receive masses of unvetted Refugees is most of these nations have dis-armed their own citizens leaving them defenseless should they be confronted by criminals, and secondly because of their Welfare systems which are already sucking the life blood out of their productive sectors.
That Influxes of refugees threaten to overwhelm these socialist innovations… the socialists are getting nasty and harbor hatred for Refugees.
Socialism is ultimately Heartlessly selfish.
Read here>>> In egalitarian Denmark, tide of refugees challenges ‘social contract’

Those who would dare to govern heap upon themselves Mammoth Moral Responsibilities, and face the most perplexing and traumatic Dilemmas in which Innocent lives are at stake.

Some will argue that a governments first/ only responsibility is to provide security to it’s own citizens… yet would letting thousands of people die at your gate tend towards ‘security’?
Not only could they out of desperation become *A real attacking horde*, the Inhumanity of such a move would play right into the Geopolitical ambitions of the Terrorist groups like Isis… making them stronger….vindicating their assertions that the West is Evil.
Would not keeping the Gates closed prove such a society to be just as heartless as Isis itself?
Would not such a cold response not prove that Evil has won… That it had gotten *inside* and rotted the Soul of the nations?
I believe so.

dead inside

The Governments of Europe need to mobilize their security forces and deploy them in such a manor as to keep the Fascist gangs and Lawless Migrants in check, and start systematically processing the refugees.

Further afield The Global community needs to declare outright war against Isis, and utterly destroy them before untold more millions are murdered and displaced.

Despite the massive numbers flooding into Europe, Millions more Refugees have fled to nations surrounding Syria
Read here>>> 4 million more

I dont profess to understand what is happening in Syria, yet from where I sit it appears to me that despite his suit and tie, Assad is a bloody and desperate tyrant.
He has a powerful Ally in Putin, who appears to think keeping Assad in power is Good for his Geopolitical ambitions.
I will never buy the Idea that Putin is at all concerned about what is best for Syria… just what is best for Russia.

The scale of the Crisis is staggering.
We cannot expect anything other than ongoing chaos…. ongoing hatred… and death.
The Soul of Humanity is at stake…. If Chaos gets out of hand it will play into the hands of the two hate groups… Radical Islam represented by Isis, etc… and The Fascist Far Right who grow in numbers in all western Nations… those who Hate Merkel in Germany,…. those who want Donald Trump for President of the USA,etc.

They are playing into Hamas’s hands…. They want them to pressure Israel.
They are validating Hamas’s use of Human shields, and they are encouraging them to use them and other extremists around the world…. because it works.
and these leaders know what they are doing… and it is a moral outrage..”

” The Israeli Defence Forces during this conflict have done more than any other army in the history of warfare to minimise the harm to innocent civilians on the battlefield”.



That video is an essential addition to my previous posts on the moral questions surrounding this conflict in Gaza, in particular >>> Insidious Evil . When ethics are used as a weapon against you.

One criticism I must make is that Israel uses conscription, yet as to the execution of their actions
there can be no question as to which side is fighting the moral fight, and who is murderously wicked.
There can be no comparison between the actions of the IDF and Hamas.
The IDF are engaged in a defensive war in which they are doing everything possible to minimise harm to innocent civilians and property, while Hamas is hell bent on maximising such terror and misery.
Everything Hamas does is a War Crime.

Sometimes I lay
Under the moon
And thank God I’m breathing

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

All my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don’t wanna fight no more
There will be no more wars
And our children will play

An arab Israeli with a message for the world

arab israeli

As an Israeli Muslim Arab, I was subjugated to brainwashing against the Jews while i was growing up. I was taught that we should hate them because they took our land, and that no Jewish person should be
living here. I was told by a few of my own family members that the Jews were planning to throw us into the sea and until that happened I would be suffering in Israel because I was an Arab.
I decided to explore the situation on my own, I went out and started meeting new people, I met a lot of Jews… What struck me at first is that they didn’t hate me like I was taught to hate them, but rather I felt care, respect, love, and a want to co-exist.
I began to realize how lucky I was to be born in Israel, to live in a free, democratic, and first world country with lots of opportunities.
Its not easy to be an Israeli Arab Zionist in an Arab Society. I was attacked physically several times, and insulted a lot.
But with the support of my amazing mother and my friends in the only country in the entire Middle East where freedom of speech is allowed, I will continue to speak out for what is right. I know that there are other many other Israeli Arabs that feel the same because almost 90% of us said that they would rather remain an Israeli than become a Palestinian citizen, but they are afraid of being hurt. That is why I am asking the world to please listen and protect the truth about Israel.
The world needs to wake up.
I see myself as a lucky Arab for being born in Israel.
I am lucky to be born in a democratic country like Israel.
I have an opportunity to live as an equal human being who lives in the 21st century.
Though, anti Israel still accuse Israel for being an aparthiehd state, ignoring the true apartheid of the Arab world’s views against the Jews and Zionists like myself of Israel. All these talks of peace will only come true when the Arabs will stop educating their children to dream about killing and eliminating the Jews.
Peace with will be achieved only when the arabs will start loving their children more than they hate us.
World wake up. Shame on you for being anti hope, democracy, and freedom in the middle east. Shame on you, to be anti Israel.
Am Yisrael chai

^^^ an Awesome, brave testament from a voice for Peaceful co-existence.
It is esp pertinent for New Zealanders to understand how Race hatred is being propagated by the Radical separatists who claim exactly the same thing has happened to them re: the Land, and injustice.
The Maori separatist movement and the Political doctrines/ lies of ‘treaty partnership’ are toxic and evil, and it is up to brave New Zealanders and Maori who know the truth to speak out against it… just as MOHAMMAD ZOABI has done above for the Jews in Israel.
I pray for his, and his Families Safety.

Ayn Rand could not be more wrong.
Despite the reality that Satan will try and use your virtue and morality against you, the truth is when guns are pulled *morality becomes absolutely essential!*
It is essential that the virtuous remain distinguishable from the Wicked.

I’m going to dig deeper into the subject of ‘Ethical conduct’ in war… which was the topic of my last blogpost…Here>>> ‘IDF Code of Ethics. Fighting a just fight.’

in particular the dilemma’s being faced by the IDF in retaliation to Hamas Terror campaign against the Civilian population of Israel, I read an interesting (and pertinent) article in today’s NZ Herald.
An Israeli organisation of Ex IDF military were very critical of how the Israeli operations in Gaza were being conducted, esp the use of artillery in civilian (urban) areas as being immoral, and decried the heavy casualties being borne by the civilians of Gaza.
This is a very interesting line of reasoning considering the IDF’s Code of ethics.
They argue that while they respect the Israeli Defence Force’s duty to defend Israel, they insist the use of artillery is *immoral* because in their opinion artillery is an *imprecise weapon*, and therefore cannot but result in careless damage/ harm to property and Non-combatants.

Read the NZ Herald story >>> Ex-soldiers’ group speaks out to condemn Israeli shelling of civilians

“Davidovich, 27, educational director for the ex-soldiers’ group Breaking the Silence, served in field intelligence during Operation Pillar of Defence, a previous Israeli war against Hamas in Gaza in 2012. He says he was repeatedly ordered to help prepare for the firing of artillery during the hostilities.

“We got orders every day that at 5pm we will shoot artillery. We prepared all day for this, but in the end it didn’t happen. It was surrealistic to see kids playing in Beit Hanoun … I don’t remember that anyone ever spoke about the civilian population. I thought to myself, ‘How can you fire without harming civilians?’ Artillery is an imprecise weapon. Artillery fire to an area inhabited by civilians cannot be moral, we trained on open areas.”


Speaking from past experience Ex soldiers and members of ‘Breaking the silence’ said it was horrible to be asked by Commanders to ready the artillery for firing into ‘high population’ areas thinking “How can we fire into areas full of innocent civilians?”
As an example They said that it is very easy in the heat of battle for mistakes to occur regarding the various weights and payloads of projectiles which are being fired, which can result in ‘Bigger bangs’, or projectiles landing several hundred meters off target.

They also didn’t think giving warnings prior to a strike for the civilian population to evacuate the area absolved culpability for civilian casualties, of those people whom for whatever reason ignored the warnings.
They reported training exercises in which Commanders contradicted the IDF code of ethics imploring their soldiers to take no thought of ‘Collateral Damage’ when seeking to fulfil the objectives of their mission. eg ” If you gotta blow up a Mosque…. blow it up!”

I noted there was no mention of being callous with regards to civilian lives in this criticism.

Spokesmen for the IDF said this group has a history of making unjustifiable criticisms, and that their comments could be used by the enemy against Israel.

APTOPIX Mideast Israel Palestinians

I have made some inquiries with experienced military personnel seeking their perspective as to whether or not modern artillery can be considered to be a precise weapon.
I asked how close would they call in artillery support?
To what degree of accuracy you would expect ‘the first shell’ to hit a target with GPS co ordinates?

Here is two responses I received from US Vets…

Justin said… “I personally wouldn’t call it in no less than 300 meters from my position which is danger close and as far as accuracy it depends on the ppl firing the rounds”

James said… “Exactly what Justin said. I will add that the only time I would use danger close is if my POS was in imminent threat of take over by the enemy. (See movie platoon, final fight scene.) I would do that if I had to. As far as it being accurate I would trust only 2 FISTERS to lay down accurate arty fire under danger close and if they trusted the crews behind the guns then so would I.”

These responses add credence to the criticisms raised by ‘Breaking the silence’ that Artillery is not a prudent weapon to use in urban Gaza.

Surely there would be better/ more accurate weaponry available to the Israeli commanders.
Artillery rounds may be more economical, yet because they are inaccurate, their use would suggest their use has resulted from commanders whom don’t place Ethical considerations as a priority, and so it would appear that though Hamas is undoubtedly responsible for the Lions share of Misery and death in Gaza, that sadly Israel cannot claim to be absolutely blameless.

Another friend of mine suggested that Israel may in fact be using high tek Guided artillery shells.

This is a very important unanswered question.
The spokesman for the IDF made no attempt to argue that they were using such high tek shells, and so in absence of such assurance, I dont think Israel can consistently claim that *all Civilian casualties* have resulted from Hamas using Human shields.
And this being so, the use of Artillery in Gaza means that Both sides have acted unethically… and unfortunately it is the innocent Palestinian Children whom pay the price.

It is a testimony to the great liberty enjoyed by the people of Israel that ex soldiers can form an association which is vocally critical of their own military, and express compassion for the people of Gaza, and whom boldly raise such important questions regarding the ethical conduct of their own Army superiors.

I would be very surprised if Hamas would tolerate *anyone* questioning their use of ‘human shields’…. weapons training of Children, etc.
I would say that any brave enough to do so risks being labelled a traitor… and being murdered… swiftly.

If anyone can dispute my assertion I would appreciate being corrected.

(update: The links below suggests Hamas dont tolerate Palestinian criticism for their actions
Angry Palestinians Attack Hamas Official Over Gaza Destruction

Palestinians in Gaza Try Anti-War Protest, Hamas Executes Them )


Thus while I appreciate ‘the PR problem’ for the IDF when it receives criticism about it’s conduct of the battle from it’s own people, yet in truth having the liberty to criticise the government and military is in reality a wonderful testament to the liberal Civilisation of Israel, which stands in stark contrast to the Tyrannies run by it’s enemies.

I also hasten to add that if the critics are correct in their assertions…. and it certainly appears that they are…. that it is extremely callous to use artillery bombardment, thus it is not the critics whom ought to be ashamed, or blamed for any PR capital Hamas gain from such public accusations *The fault lies squarely with the Military Commanders* whom are not following the IDF Code of ethics.
*They are harming* the Israeli cause.
*They are stepping off the moral high ground*
*They ought to be replaced with Better/ more moral commanders*


What interests me most is that these criticisms are not being made by Tree hugging Liberals facebooking from Starbucks in Hollywood, but from experienced military personnel whom have seen action.
Thus they ought to be *more realistic about the nature of war*… yet they seem to believe Israel could be handling things much better… resulting in less unnecessary misery and death of innocent non-combatants and their property.

On the flip side it could be argued that the horrors and realities of War have so traumatised the members of ‘Breaking the silence’ that they suffer ‘Diminished capacity’ to some degree and are *not capable* of clearly appreciating what must be done… under the circumstances.

Perhaps the Israeli commanders can honestly say they are conducting operations so as to achieve the objectives of the IDF with minimal loss of life, and damage to property.

That to me seems a very hard sale.

I do appreciate though, that when a Commander tells his troops not to hesitate blowing up a mosque if they must, he’s telling them to look out for their own safety… dont let ‘politically correct’ niceties get you killed.

We all know that Hamas are employing despicable tactics which are war crimes… apparently a Hamas textbook on tactics has been captured which contains the Hamas rationale regards the use of Human shields.

*Read about Hamas Stratagems knowing Human shields are a problem for Israeli forces seeking to minimise Civilian casualties, and for Hate Propaganda >>>Here<<< We have herd reports about Hamas preventing Gaza residents from evacuating when Israel has warned of a strike. We have seen countless photos of 'The Brave Hamas' firing their weapons from behind civilians standing in the middle of Combat... and it is inconceivable that these people would be standing there if they were free to take cover.... they are obviously told to stay put, or have their families slaughtered. Then we see Hamas Parading the Dead 'parents and children' saying "Israel is too scared to fight Hamas, and so they slaughter families instead". Hamas is fighting a despicable War of Lies seeking to breed hatred of Israel, and Isolate Israel from her western allies. And it is a testament to the foolishness and wilful, growing anti-Semitism in the West that so much of the lies of Hamas and other Fanatical Islamic terrorist groups are lapped up and endorsed by Politicians about the globe... in the UN .... even here in New Zealand by Labours Phil Goff, and (no surprise) by Mana party Leader Hone Harawera. ham scum

I have no doubt that Hamas is not only the aggressor in this conflict, but is also with respect to its Anti-Semitism fundamentally a psychotic criminal organisation on a Par with Hitler’s Nazi’s.
I don’t believe there can be peace with such organisations, and that Israel is fully justified in destroying them all.
I am simply asking the question whether or not they are maintaining the high ground with how they conduct their military.

War sux!
There can be no disputing this, and it is understandable that those whom have seen war up close can become disgusted, and seek to bring the carnage to an end.

Yet it is wrong to automatically think that military commanders ‘enjoy war’… or deny that they are seeking to restore peace with minimum loss of life.

When you are dealing with the likes of Hamas… it’s always going to be an ugly barbaric affair.
Innocent people will die in large numbers…. in do believe Hamas must bear the lions share for the misery of Gaza.

Update: 8-8-14.
I received another professional Military opinion regarding the use of Artillery.
Mike says…. Essentially, Forward Observers will call in indirect fire as close as it is needed to safely suppress, neutralize, or destroy the enemy – end of story. The general rule of thumb for danger close is 600 meters for cannon, rocket, or mortars, 1,000 meters for naval gun fire, and 2,000 meters for MLRS. This is just a warning to the individuals who carry out these missions, and NOT RESTRICTIONS. Just because friendly troops, civilians, or sensitive structures are with in the danger close zone does not mean rounds will not be dropped. When used correctly, Field Artillery can be used as a sniper rifle that is guaranteed to destroy it’s target without putting friendly forces in danger.

There are risk to using Field Artillery in an urban environment, especially one as contested as Palestine. However, I will tell you this; the Field Artillery units in Israel are striking targets with pin point accuracy in such a manner that mitigates collateral damage. Their willingness and ability to utilize state of the art technology and proper planning in the deployment of their Field Artillery assets has enabled them to eliminate enemy targets in such a manner that actually posses less collateral damage and loss of life to Israeli soldiers and Palestine civilians, then sending in droves of ground forces throughout Palestine.”

^^^Thus there is a *Moral argument* which can be tabled in support the use of Artillery… suggesting it can be very accurate, reduces casualties suffered by Israeli infantry, and ultimately results in Less misery and property damage.

Watch a video about what the IDF is up against >>> Here<<< Thus the terrible dilemma's faced in war by Commanders and troops is weighing up the cost/ risk to innocent civilian lives and property against the safety and ultimate success of your own troops... which ultimately could bring the conflict to a swifter end and thus save lives on all sides. One thing is certain... Hamas are the dirty dealers.... choosing to base their attacks from within the living space of the Palestinian people.... out of a sheer evil intent to gain safety for their own fighters... at the expense of the safety of the Palestinian people. Update: A clear Moral argument is presented in my later blog post>>>> Raining V2s. Proportionality of force in military law. British Army Col Richard Kemp on civilian casualties in Operation Protective Edge.


Looking at the wake of WW1, and what Chamberlain was willing to surrender to Hitler under the delusion of achieving ‘Peace in his time’… and how ultimately his gullible and effeminate submission to the Evil Machiavellian brought not peace… but a monumental tyranny and oceans of Blood…. both Military and civilian… we ought to appreciate why “Never Again”… is a byword in Israel.
I just hope they better maintain the distinction of what separates the virtuous from the Unholy.
The IDF needs to review their strategy.

Commanding a defence force against such an insidious evil as Hamas takes gargantuan Balls… and just like Winston Churchill seeking to Defeat the Nazis… and the Dresden Bombing, or The decision to Drop the A Bombs in Japan… these Actions won the War and *that Generation* was grateful for the boldness of their leaders, and had little doubt that these actions were justifiable, though later generations…. in the comfort of the Liberty they enjoy because of the Bravery and leadership decisions of the War generation… boldly label Churchill and co… mass murderers.

It’s a little too easy for some of us to prance about talking about Ends and Means when we don’t carry any weight of responsibility.

Ultimately God will judge.

In the meantime…. “Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
