In a combat situation: Ethical Code of Conduct priorities

Joanna Choukeir Hojeily posted on FB this August 4, 2014

Yesterday, I asked my father, a retired Major General in the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), this question:

“In a combat situation, if your commanders are faced with these three factors, how would you train them to prioritise and take action:
1. Achieving a military objective;
2. Sparing soldiers’ lives;
3. Sparing enemy civilians’ lives.”

He replied: “According to the LAF Ethical Code of Conduct, the three factors are of equal priority.

We need to achieve a military objective while sparing as many soldiers’ and civilians’ lives.

The military objective is very important, however, if it risks the lives of soldiers and/or enemy civilians at a scale that exceeds the achievement of the military objective, we would need to consider a different military strategy that incurs less loss in lives. This ethical practice is common across many National armies in the World.”

And what is Israel army Ethical Code of Conduct?

IDF: “No justification for endangering lives of soldiers to avoid killing of civilians who live in vicinity of terrorists” ‪#‎GazaUnderAttack

Now I quote from the Israeli Defencs Forces’ Ethical Code of Conduct:
The overriding principle guiding the commanders is achieving their military objectives. Next in priority is protecting soldiers’ lives, followed by avoiding injury to enemy civilians.”

#‎Israeli‬ officer’s briefing: “Let errors take their lives, not ours. This is the mindset. War.” ‪#‎Gazaunderattack‬ http://t.co/Wxv4qVxMNO

Questions human rights organisations are asking themselves http://www.stoptorture.org.il/files/no%20second%20thoughts_ENG_WEB.pdf

Therefore, it comes at no surprise that the UN and the World would be questioning the ethics of Israel’s military actions so urgently and frequently

Bible and Torahs not based on historical facts

Just a collection of stories of customs of the Land

Nothing found after centuries of archaeological digging

The Israeli Archaeology Professor Zeif Hertzog stated that after 70 years of steadfast and persistent archaeological digging in Palestine, the State of Israel was totally unable to discover any artifacts or pieces of evidence that there existed any kingdoms of David or Solomon,

Or that the Jews immigrated to Egypt or ever crossed the Sinai from Egypt,

Or conquered any piece of land in Palestine or Syria.

He resumed: “All the expert know these facts, but they don’t dare come forward to state their expert opinions for the public to be familiar with the facts. They know that all the stories in the Bible are pure popular fictions…

I have posted many articles stating that the Bible and all the Religious Books from around the world describe the customs and traditions of their Lands, and disseminated in writing the verbal myths of their communities.I

have posted around two dozen articles on that topic.
