Japanese war crimes in Manchukuo

I was in Nuremberg recently. The Nazi war crimes are well documented.

Human experimentation in concentration camps was performed by volunteer Nazi doctors against Romani, Sinti, ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs, disabled Germans, and Jews.

Typically, the experiments resulted in death, trauma, disfigurement or permanent disability, and as such are considered examples of medical torture.

But I’d never heard of Unit 731, a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) of World War II.

Estimates of those killed by Unit 731 and its related programs range up to half a million people.

WHY don’t we know more? The researchers involved in Unit 731 were secretly given immunity by the U.S. in exchange for the data they gathered through human experimentation.

The Japanese government has never admitted it happened nor apologised.

There is a museum in Harbin which displays some of the horrible historical artefacts.

The New Girl by Daniel Silva

The 19th book in the Gabriel Allon series. It’s excellent. I listened to it twice, in fact.

Published July 16, 2019, it’s up-to-date with current world politics. A Jewish perspective. For example, a stable Saudi Arabia is better for Israel than a reckless Kingdom.

It starts with a kidnapping of the daughter of Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

He’s a fictionalized version of Mohammad bin Salman. In the book, responsible for the assassination of a journalist, similar to Jamal Khashoggi.

That murder  is compared with Henry II of England who had Thomas Becket killed.

Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?

Bizarrely, the next King of Saudi Arabia turns to Gabriel Allon, legendary chief of Israeli intelligence to solve the abduction. An interesting plot device — but totally unbelievable.

Who’s behind the kidnapping? 

What’s their real motivation?

Daniel Silva returns most of our favourite characters from the past few books.

Nazi Party rally grounds, Nuremberg

Recall the egomaniac psychopath who convinced normal people to elect him?

The ‘great and unmatched’ wannabe dictator.

Trump is not Hitler. Hitler was worse. Hitler was smarter. 

Trump is a pathetic comedy version — more like Charlie Chaplin.

Much of the NAZI rally footage we’ve seen comes from Nuremberg.

Trump dreams of rallies like this.

An estimated 200,000 people each year visit the Nazi party rally grounds. It’s crumbling, in fact.

Germans documented everything and most of that documentation survived.

I visited the Nazi Party Rally Grounds Documentation Center, one of those storehouses. They have the name of every Jew, Gypsy, Homosexual, political opponent put on a train to a death camp, for example.

IF you’ve been somehow duped into believing the Holocaust didn’t happen, NEVER speak to me again. You are a moron.
