POW Exchange History : 3th of June 1973

On 3th of June 1973 Syria and Israel had exchanged POWs whom were captured during the war of attrition. In 1970 Syria managed to capture 3 Israeli pilots : Captain Gideon Magen, Captain Pinchas Nahmani, and Lieutenant Boaz Eitan and sent them to the notorious Al Mazza prison. For the record those 3 pilots did not suffer 0.1 from what any Syrian citizen had suffered in that prison which has become a synonym to living cemetery during the iron fist of Hafez Al Assad rule.

On 9th of June 1972 the IDF managed to capture five Syrian officers who were in reconnaissance mission  near the Golan heights.

On the 3th of  June 1973 Israel and Syria exchanged their POWs , the 3 Israeli pilots for 5 Syria officers along other 41 Syrians.

Here was a photo for a Syrian POW during the exchange

The Crimes Against Egyptian POWs in Crimes of War Project

The Crimes of War project is a very promising respectable international project for documenting war crimes all over the world despite how this mission seems hard and difficult. The project issued a book about the war crimes in the world “Crimes of War 2.0” which is a guide to educate the people more about the war crimes using documented examples from around the globe and it is available in different languages among which an Arabic version from the book.

The project is an independent body that has no Arabic or Islamic relation what so ever , of course I have to say so just in case because there is an extensive section of course in this project and its book about the Arabic-Israeli conflict since 1948 war.

I found this part from the “Arab-Israeli Wars” Chapter related to the war crimes against our Egyptian POWs in 1956 and 1967 wars

USS Liberty and Gaza Flotilla

Gaza flotilla incident reminded many people with the famous SS Exodus incident and it also reminded many others with the famous USS Liberty incident whose anniversary  is after 3 days

Despite the differences between USS liberty and Gaza flotilla yet both ships were attacked in international waters , Americans were killed by IDF on both of them and one of the flotilla passengers was from the original passengers of USS Liberty.

Joe Meadors was on the board of  Sfendoi Ship that was captured in the flotilla and he shared with the world his experience in his second encounter with the IDF.

Why is USS liberty interesting to our POWs Case ??

Well some crew members of the USS liberty believes that the IDF may have thought that the ship had intercepted communications between the Israelis speaking about a massacre for our POWs in Al Arish citadel to be specific.

Remember Remember The 5th of June

Today was the start of the six days war from 43 years ago , today was the start of a series of war crimes against civilians and POWs alike , it is not our issue here who won the battle or who lost but rather who respected the international laws and who did not.

Many Pro-Egyptian regime writers claims that the rights of the Egyptian POWs have been restored in 1973 Yom Kippor war but they are wrong because the rights of Egyptian and Arab POWs are not restored by wars and battles but with the law , the international laws.

Many Egyptians from Alexandria to Aswan remember today their beloved ones whether fathers, brothers and sons who went to a battle they did not know anything about , they remember them and wish one day to see those who killed their beloved ones in captivity behind bars as war criminals.

It was Too Good To Be True

I thought that Ben Eliezer had to leave Qatar yesterday due to the attack on the Gaza flotilla , well I was wrong and I apologize for this as my sources were wrong , the infamous hero of Shaked war crime did not leave on the contrary he was having a very good cheerful time.

His tongue to the whole world
His tongue to the whole world

It turned out that he attended cheerfully the world economic forum in Doha along with icons and leaders from Arab world like for example Prince Hamad of Qatar who was very angry yesterday for what happened against the peace activists issuing a powerful statement and demanding an immediate Arab summit !!

Also Queen Rania of Jordan who showered her twitter account with sad facts about Gaza suffering under the Israeli occupation yesterday was at the same time at the conference with Fouad !!

Queen Rania and Prince Hamad

I understand the double personalities our rulers suffer from but whom they think they are fooling.

Here is a photo of a war criminal smiling in Qatar

Happy Fouad
