Dear Mr. Simon,

You mention the name “Mike Flint” twice in your article, IAF – Avia S-199, THE ROLE OF THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN AVIA-S199 – THE ISRAEL AIR FORCE’S FIRST COMBAT AIRCRAFT.

There is no mention of “Mitchell Flint” – CLICK HERE – which is most interesting and revealing including the following paragraph:

On 26th July [1948], 101 Squadron moved to Ma’abarot so that the Herzlia base could undergo renovations. On 5th August, the squadron received its first Spitfire which had been reconstructed out of junk, as well as from parts which were salvaged from Egyptian Spitfires which had been downed. At that stage, twelve S-199s were either active or in maintenance. 17th August was a great day when Ben-Gurion visited 101 Squadron. Following two accidents as a result of pilot error, Mike Flint left the Squadron and transferred to 35 Flight.

Could you have made the mistake of calling Mitchell Flint, “Mike” since there was no other Jewish American volunteer pilot by the last-surname Flint who served in Israel’s first fighter Squadron, Squadron 101?

In your interview were you asked why none of the “quick to take the credit” Jewish American pilots replaced Squadron 101’s first Commander, Israeli Modi Alon who was killed on October 16, 1948?

Why do you think it is that the least accomplished need to alway be surrounded by cheerleaders while the most accomplished stay quiet when they are not otherwise rejected by the social climbers and sometimes killed?

Was there any mention in the movie about Gentile Canadian, World War II fighter pilot ace, George “Buzz” Beurling being killed on May 20, 1948 in Rome on his way to join the Israel Air Force?

Was there any mention in the movie about South African, Deputy Commander of the Israel Air Force, Boris Senior purchasing in South Africa just weeks before the official start of Israel’s War of Independence, May 15, 1948, 50 of America’s most advanced fighter-bombers, Kittyhawks for the extraordinary low price of 6 English Pounds each which he had to leave behind in South Africa because of the American led, United Nation’s arms boycott of Israel?

How much praise did you and Steven-Nancy Spielberg place on legendary Jewish South African Captain Syd Cohen, my father’s wingman on many of my father’s miraculous 71 dive-bombing missions during WW II, named by Ben-Gurion and his most trusted advisors to take over as Commander of Squadron 101 following the death of Alon?

If you are going to make a movie-documentary about the origins of the Israel Air Force, focus on the calibre of the great individual Syd Cohen who led the IAF to victory?

If you talk about South African Captain Syd Cohen whose last tour of duty during World War II, as you well know, was in Jan Christian Smuts’ South African Air Force Squadron 11 and whose only other Jewish Fighter Bomber Pilot member was my father Bernie Gevisser of Hasholom.

then you have to talk about Smuts, wouldn’t you agree?

If you talk about Smuts, you then have to talk about what led to Smuts, a South African, becoming a member of the British War Cabinet in both World War I and its continuation World War II which was all geared to destroy all of world Jewry.

Why do you think Hollywood-Madison Avenue, that is dominated by Jewish sellouts-Kapos, has gone out of its way to write Smuts out of the history books?

Would you say that when you saw Marilyn Monroe wearing her diamonds in Hollywood movies and the words that you cannot forget, “A Diamond Is Forever-A Girl’s best friend” it meant that DeBeers-Sir Ernest Oppenheimer were friends of us Jewish people?

When the Soviet MIG 21 landed in Israel on August 16, 1966 on what the defecting Iraqi pilot said, “the last drop of fuel” did you draw a connection with DeBeers-Oppenheimer who backed all sides to our Jewish Holocaust-World War II, escaping prosecution at the 1946-7 Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals?

When you see the photo of Putin

paying his respects to Sir Ernest Oppenheimer’s grandson, Nicholas Oppenheimer who was born on the same day my dad’s 50 year young mother Kate Sher Gevisser died, June 8, 1945, did you think DeBeers now meant us Jewish people well?

Why do you think it is that no Jewish people in power point out that it is only corrupt Jewish people in power who are no less ruthless in wielding their unbridled power than the Jewish Kapos in charge of the Nazi death camps which kept the hands of the Nazi SS clean of blood?

BTW, have you managed yet to read staff member of the British War Cabinet, Sir Keith Hancock’s two volume biography of South African General Jan C. Smuts, the first, covering Smuts’ life from 1870 until 1919 published in 1962 and the second covering the period 1920 until Smuts’ death on September 11, 1950, published in 1968, and what do you make of why it is that Hollywood make no mention of Hancock not mincing any words about Smuts being the “Father” of the Royal Air Force as well as a good friend of the Jewish people?

Have you also managed to read the 1952 British edition of Smuts’ biography written by his son of the same name, and when coming to the paragraph detailing Smuts joining Sir Ernest Oppenheimer on a trip to the Belgian Congo in mid-July 1939 did your mind remind you that not only was Ernest Oppenheimer of DeBeers now supplying Hitler with his diamonds out of the United States protectorate Belgian Congo, but that paragraph was removed from the almost identical American edition, also published in 1952?

What have you done with this information?

I am inclined to believe that you most probably got the name of the father and son Flint mixed up since in another article you make reference to both – CLICK HERE.:

At this point, several Machalniks from abroad arrived, after having attended the Israel Air Force Remembrance ceremony which honored their service to Israel in 1948. Leon (Sonny) Ospovat (South Africa), Michael (Mitch) Flint (USA), Zan and Noreen Swartzberg (South Africa) are currently in Israel with Mitch Flint’s son Mike who is filming a production on the Israel Air Force (“Angels in the Sky: The Birth of the Israel Air Force”).

L-R Back: Noreen/Zan Swartzberg (South Africa); Solly Ospovat (South Africa); Reuven Narunsky (South Africa); Mitch Flint (USA);

L-R Front: Harry Shaer (South Africa 1956); Smoky Simon (South Africa); Joe Woolf (South Africa)

BTW, you may not be aware that this “ assed” SIC Saturday evening, Jim Winters, the son of most righteous Gentile American Charles Winters who was nicknamed “Godfather of the Israel Air Force” and for his momentous righteousness towards us Jewish people began serving in June 1948, one month into Israel’s first war of survival, an 18 month prison sentence in an American military prison, was embarrassingly, according to Jim, “escorted off the property by police” while waiting in line to attend the premier in Miami of Steven-Nancy Spielberg’s movie Above and Beyond which you say you appear in; not to mention, again according to Jim Winter, a Jewish friend later in the evening asked the security “why?”, and they answered, “it came straight from Nancy”; to mention little of Jim also informing me, “4 media outlets considering running the snub story”; to mention in passing, you have to ask yourself why would Nancy-Steven Spielberg want the public to be ignorant of Charles Winters’ colossal contribution to the survival of the Jewish State and independent Jewish thinking?

I have suggested to Jim Winters that he “hold his horses” until such time as we know what, if any mention there is of his father in Above and Beyond.

It would be very nice if you could attach a sense of urgency in letting us know since you have seen the movie.

Thank you,


PS – Just to let you know that my beautiful face-mind-body F-C [French-Canadian] wife Marie Dion, and I as well as most sensitive personality Mango exited very badly mistreating women, Muslim Morocco yesterday just before the faulty exhaust of the missile Audi TT turbo quadro disengaged from 225 horsepower engine, without a scratch despite a male, hot tempered Islamic extremist, who is old enough to be divorced and most likely in his 30s and therefore no child, threatened me to my face, “IF YOU ARE A ZIONIST, I WILL SLIT YOUR THROAT” which I only found out later once I had given him my email address and Facebook particulars which point to my very pro truth as well as Israel website, when my very smart, brave and very on top of things F-C wife Marie did the translation otherwise, I would have not waited for Mimoun to get the first blow in.

Nor was that the first time we were blessed with the “Hand of God” intervening as it was the second time we encountered a poorly bred Muslim male acting out without the slightest harm coming to us; moreover, on our last night in Rabat, the capital of Morocco that many Occidentals think is a town and its famed city Marakech either in Afghanistan or Algiers-Tunisia, we lay helpless in our hotel room listening to the loud and angry voice of a man that was in stark contrast to the screams for mercy from a woman, both using the Arabic language but again there were only screams coming from the woman in a nearby home.

These incidents of course do not come close to telling the whole story of who profits from the mistreatment of women whose voices you never hear in the crowded souks.

The positives however, FAR OUTWEIGH the negatives, and I am not only talking about the most beautiful in the world Morocco high Atlas Mountains, but once all peoples from all walks of life know that they are manipulated as much as the value of the price-fixed money which is dependent upon the poorly educated Occidentals continuing to promote the insanely evil and illogical economic Gross Domestic Product index that punishes mineral rich raped countries and whose puppet leaders then invite Occidental charities such as UNICEF, UNESCO, AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, WORLD BANK, RED CROSS, DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS, SURVIVAL INTERNATIONAL etc, to put the finishing touches to the destruction of their ancient cultures where the mainstay was sharing, starting with the water that logic says must be free since it comes from the heavens and then to forget with passing laws for free healthcare since a leader cannot care for people if they allow monopolists to control and set the price of water, the world will wake up; and you must notice how very quiet American, Stanford University Professor of Economics, Geoffrey Rothwell Phd, has become while still holding down his job as Principal Economist for the Nuclear Energy Agency that is headquartered in France who has the highest nuclear energy usage, and most alarmingly NONE of their STREET MARCHES mention, and that hasn’t stopped very happy and beautiful young Occidental women visiting Morocco not afraid to drop the veil, and walk the streets of Rabat showing their beautiful legs, and their heads held up high.

Now watching, without sound, CUT THROAT KITCHEN on TV.

Shalom Mr. Gevisser,

Thank you for your emails of 7th and 8th September.

Concerning Nancy Spielberg’s film “Above and Beyond: The Birth of the Israel Air Force”, I was in constant contact with Nancy during the production of this film and in fact I appear in it. I have seen a screening of the film in Jerusalem and was most impressed. It is informative, shows excellent shots of aircraft and events in 1948, and includes excellent interviews with some American Air Force Machalniks.

With regard to Mike Flint’s film “Angels in the Sky, the Birth of Israel”, I have been interviewed with Mike for this film and have met with him and his crew on several occasions, but as yet I have not seen any excerpts from the film, which I believe is not yet completed.

Boaz Dvir has made contact with me concerning his production “Wing and a Prayer” but I have not yet seen any excerpts from his film, and am not even sure if it is completed.

I do hope this information is of assistance to you.

Smoky Simon, Chairman World Machal

Dear Mr. Simon,
Los Angeles based journalist, Tom Tugend – see below – provided me earlier with your email address.
Your writings about the Israel Air Force on the Internet are very interesting and definitive.
Purpose of this communication: Have you been approached by any of the producers of these 3 movies-documentaries to provide your input?
It is always best to give a little background; and of course a picture tells a thousand stories.



I am the youngest son of SAAF Squadron 11, Fighter-Bomber-Pilot, 2nd Lieutenant Bernie Gevisser [1923-2012], who you see above standing to the right of Captain Syd Cohen in Pontedere, December 1944; the only two Jewish Fighter-Bomber-Pilots in Squadron 11.
My dad


completed 71 missions during WW II; only flying Kittyhawks,


although my dad, like Boris and Syd Cohen also trained on Spitfires


in Idku, Egypt


in the summer of 1944 before moving on to northern Italy.
My dad was “skipped” when Boris Senior returned to South Africa in mid-February 1948 with orders from Ben-Gurion to recruit pilots such as my dad and uncle Syd, as well as purchase fighter aircraft; and he was “gifted on a plate” the 50 Kittyhawks which he paid 300 English Pounds, but left behind because of the difficulties he saw getting them through the arms blockade.
Upon landing after his 71st mission on April 15, 1945, my dad was informed that his 50-year old mother, Kate Gevisser, who was married to my grandfather, Israel Issy Gevisser [c. 1890-1970], co-founder of The Moshal Gevisser Group of Companies [1910-1970] was on her death bed, and he immediately returned to Durban; Kate passed away 6 weeks later on June 8, 1945.
I met uncle Syd


on my first trip

<geviseris-in training-1.jpg>

 to israel, back in 1966.


In the second photo above, it is me “playacting” pointing an unloaded Uzi at my middle brother Melvin who seeing my dad who always had a camera “at the ready”, taking the shot, puts up his hands.


Above is the first entry in the diary I kept, starting on the day I arrived for a 4 month ulpan-Gadna training at Ben-Gurion’s kibbutz Sde Boker on September 1, 1972, 42 years and 4 days ago; not to mention, I began meeting regularly with Boris Senior soon after my first meeting on November 1st with Ben-Gurion, who my mother Zena believes came from the same tiny village of Plonsk, White Russia-Poland as my great maternal grandmother, Nechie Becker Badash [1874-1943]


who was orphaned in a pogrom when she was 14 which wiped out her entire immediate family, and she was sent to live with distant relatives in England; but more likely Ben-Gurion came from the much larger town of the same name; to mention little of Nechie and Ben-Gurion were close confidantes going back to before she moved from England, where all her 5 boys were born, to Tel-Aviv in 1925 and only returning to England in 1929 upon the birth of my mother, the only child of Nechie’s “favored” son, Alef Badash [1899-1965] who in late September 1941 made application in Leeds, England to change his Jewish sounding name, to the more Gentile, Al Ash; to mention in passing, Nechie died after falling down a flight of stairs in the a boarding house where she was recuperating after being run over by a car, which Ben-Gurion did not believe was an accident.
There is of course more to this story, but I don’t won’t to bore you to death.
Proud of you,
Gary S. Gevisser
Ps – BTW, my mom, Zena Ash Gevisser


who wrote the paperback, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A WOMAN


and later made into a record,


also “starred” on the back of the Grape Nuts cereal box.


Her model, Penny Coelen,


who you see standing next to the lifeguard rowing boat on Durban’s south Beach, me in my mom’s arms, won the Miss World in 1958; 10 years later here I am


back in Israel.
Not to mention, while I am the “baby” of the family, my dad decided as my 21st birthday gift to give me his two logbooks from WW II, which of course are my prized possessions; and on my 34th birthday, March 24, 1991, my mom sent me my dad’s wings with this note

Gary, I know a number of pilots who served with the 101 squadron, but not the two men you mention.

Your best source is probably Smoky Simon, who is the main archive keeper for Machal (overseas volunteers who fought for Israel). He is also a South African and served in the IAF in 1948. his email is:
Good luck,

Tom, was there any follow up article by you or anything written by anyone “of consequence”.

My reason to “touch base”, excuse the pun, is to know whether you read or heard anything about Israel Air Force, Squadron 101 Base Commander Syd Cohen [1921-2011] and/or the 2004 autobiography, NEW HEAVENS, penned by South African-Israeli Colonel, Boris Senior [1924-2004] who “retired” from Israeli Air Force in 1952 as Deputy Commander of IAF?
