Abbas Playing a Dangerous Game and Israel is the Least of His Problems

Abbas has taken steps beyond belief in his psychological and propaganda war against Israel while also reinforcing and calling for a ramping of societal violence against Jews and Israel. Abbas recently called for the Palestinian people to continue to riot and to increase their ferocity and size in order to deny Jews in particular and other non-Muslims in general from gaining access to the Temple Mount. He has again denied any Jewish and inferred no Christian historic attachment to the Temple Mount. His call specifically demanded the riots on the Temple Mount continue even should the rioters need to literally break through police lines and break restrictions and laws in order to continue their violence demanding that Jews be banned from walking on the Temple Mount. His reference was that any Jews ever walking on the Temple Mount was by definition a defilement of the al-Aqsa Mosque and other Islamic places located on the Temple Mount. When some Israelis objected to the offensive Abbas comments he went even further comparing their presence as herds of cattle which should be denied stampeding the Temple Mount. Possibly as a result of Abbas making such inflammatory remarks or perhaps due to other instigations, visitors to the Temple Mount this morning were treated to the blasphemous representation painted on one of the entrances to the Temple Mount this morning equating the Star of David with the Nazi Swastika. The real question is whether Abbas is actually leading the violence which has plagued the Temple Mount and areas throughout Judea and Samaria (West Bank) or were his comments made to take advantage of a situation which already exists by making statements which made it appear Abbas was in command?

The truth might be somewhat different even that portrayed by the world’s media which has a special fawning relationship with Abbas always ready to grant him credit and support propping him up and thus salvaging the peace process and the moribund two state solution, a hope the world has invested in to such an extent that letting go is no longer thinkable no matter how obvious its lack of feasibility objective inspections would reveal. The reality is that the rioting on the Temple Mount is currently being choreographed and financed by Hamas as they are financing coordinators and instigators to continue to organize and orchestrate unending disruptions on the Temple Mount. Hamas has the same objective of disrupting Jewish visitation to the Temple Mount but they have further objectives which may be even more dangerous. The Shin Bet uncovered a coup attempt planned by Hamas to replace the Palestinian Authority from rule in the West Bank similarly as they did when they took control of Gaza in a bloody coup. The Israelis also captured the blueprint of the plan along with the leaders and many of the planners when they rounded up those who they had uncovered were members of the planned coup. Some of the plan was revealed through innuendo to the public and as far as I could gather, the coup against the Palestinian Authority was to instigate as much and varied amounts of disruptions maximizing the violent components leading to a state of runaway violence which would overwhelm the Palestinian Authority Security Force’s ability to control causing Abbas to request assistance from the Israelis in quieting the state of disorder and reestablish his ability to control the levels of violence against Israel. Abbas would never put it so plainly, but that would be the reality of such a request.

With the leadership of their plan taken out of the field by the Israelis, Hamas may be working towards their same goals by other means. As stated, it is known that much of the violence on the Temple Mount is financed by Hamas and it will be only a matter of time before this raised level of disturbances on the Temple Mount begin to spread. Once they begin to spread naturally, then any efforts put into place to further stimulate higher levels of violent unrest would serve to produce multiple results. Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas will continue to bait the trap by encouraging escalating violence as he pretends to be at the fore leading the actions when in reality he is a pretender following each escalation with his feeble attempts to appear in control. Hamas will be more than happy to receive the verbal reinforcement of their plans to continuously increase the levels and extents of the disruptions and violence as such escalations serve both of their wars, the one against the Israelis and Jews as well as the one for complete control over all of the Palestinian areas which requires the overthrow of Abbas. Before Hamas can take the final steps to overthrow Abbas they must first destroy what little faith the Israelis have remaining for his ability to control Palestinian actions, discount Abbas’s reputation throughout the world as a peace partner through instigating violence beyond his ability to control making him appear as inept as possible before the world media and leaders, and finally discredit Abbas with the Palestinian people by forcing him to request Israeli assistance to restore order and his ability to control and appear to rule the West Bank. All of this can be accomplished by instigating continued escalating violence having it spread to all areas of Judea and Samaria until Abbas has no alternative other than to confess he is not in control of the violence taking place and that he is worried and thus is not desiring to continue the façade that he is in control and instead asks for assistance in restoring some level of order permitting him to restore his ability to rule and be in control of the Palestinian population. That admission will be all Hamas requires proving that they and only they are the true leaders of the Palestinian people and thus deserving to rule all of the Palestinian people and thus the unity government. Hamas might even be capable at such a point of forcing elections for the Palestinian Authority unity government parliament and also for the position of Chairman of the Unity Government thus forcing Abbas to face Haniyeh in an actual election, something Abbas has avoided ever since he was scheduled to run for reelection in 2009. Could we be witnessing the potential end of the age of Abbas at the fore of Palestinian leadership in the eyes of the world? Possibly, and that begs the next question as to how will the world react when the leadership of the Palestinians is assumed by Hamas. Will they then decide to remove the burden of wearing the condemnation of the terrorist collar Hamas currently must submit? Will Hamas receive the same sanctification the PLO was granted in order to transform them from one of the preemptory terrorist organizations in order to force Israel to accept them as peace partners and if so would Israel stand for such treachery. These answers may be forced upon the world sooner than many think and then the truth will be unavoidable, the world is willing to do whatever it takes to differentiate between the terrorism faced by the rest of the world from the terrorism against Israel and by doing so force Israel to have to be subjected to eternal threats from such terrorism while also being condemned by the world for not being more accepting of the demands made by terrorists. Hopefully, by then Israeli leadership will have seen through the world’s façade of proposing a peace process when in reality they are simply attempting to force Israel to face and live with mortal threats against their existence in the hope that someday Israel will fail.

The World’s Priorities Are Upside-Down

This past week the nations of this planet met in Cairo and pledges almost five and a half billion, that’s billion with a ‘B’, dollars to rebuild Hamas and make a show of rebuilding Gaza. The entire efforts to address the Ebola outbreak, which is threatening to blossom into a world-wide pandemic, have to date not cleared the hoped for one billion dollars as it has now threatened to spread out of Western Africa. Meanwhile, Israel shipped over six-hundred-tons of construction materials to Gaza which included six-hundred-tons of cement including fifty truckloads of aggregate as well as ten truckloads of steel. To date Hamas and Islamic Jihad have already spent the past two-plus months since before the late August ceasefire rebuilding in Gaza, rebuilding their tunnels and bunkers including the command bunker that is located beneath Shifa Hospital in northern Gaza and the infiltration tunnels out of Gaza under the separation barrier at the border and into Israel. All of this is going on while the World Health Agency healthcare workers are being felled by inadequate equipment to prevent their contracting Ebola. Thus far three-hundred-seventy-five have contracted Ebola (67 in Guinea, 184 in Liberia, 11 in Nigeria, and 113 in Sierra Leone) of which two-hundred-eleven have succumbed to the deadly disease (35 in Guinea, 89 in Liberia, five in Nigeria, and 82 in Sierra Leone).

The comparisons are literally endless. One could point to the fact that so little monies have been raised to actually stop a potential pandemic in its tracks while the world once again ran to rearm Hamas, allow for the reconstruction of the Hamas bunker and tunnel system, pay for the replacement of the nearly exhausted and destroyed rocket arsenal, provide bigger and more lethal rockets and potentially, this time, guided missiles increasing the deadly potential of Hamas barrages and resetting the stage in Gaza for another destructive conflict possibly in even less than the two year cycle which has existed since Hamas took control of Gaza in a bloody coup killing the majority of Fatah and Palestinian Authority forces and hierarchy in the process. Hamas’s murderous ways are not restricted to killing Israelis; they also freely murder Gazans as well as Palestinian Authority personnel and Fatah leaders. Immediately after the final ceasefire with Israel was initiated and even before the rebuilding of the tunnels and bunkers had begun, Hamas murdered over twenty people in open and very public executions without even the semblance of a trial. These summary executions were taken against some of the remaining Fatah members and others who were accused of assisting Israel with evidence as flimsy as that their cellphone had an Israeli SIM card. The reasons given for such brutality being committed in the open and even going so far as to perform a number of the executions in the public square before Gazans of all ages, both men and women both old and young including children, was simply to reinforce their authority at the end of the conflict sending the message that Hamas is still strong and all-powerful in Gaza and that the people need continue to fear and obey all Hamas edicts or face an immediate death sentence possibly carried out on the spot with no need for any trials. This too is part and parcel of what the world just financed for the people in Gaza instead of attempting to improve their lives.

The almost five and a half billion dollars raised for presumably the rebuilding of Gaza will also be used to install built-in explosive and other booby-traps built right into the buildings’ walls, floors and ceilings such as were put within the actual structure of one United Nations UNWRA run health clinics which also housed one of the myriad of tunnel entrances. This particular clinic was detonated as IDF soldiers had entered the clinic and were preparing to investigate the tunnels below before deciding whether to destroy them. Five IDF soldiers were caught in the fatal range of the blast and collapsing structure. Subsequent investigations revealed the blast came from within the structure of the walls of this clinic. These explosives had been emplaced when the building was built thus planning to utilize this healthcare clinic as a trapped building even realizing, or especially because of, the probability it might become a shelter for Gazans during any conflict. As this form of explosive booby-trap worked so efficiently and also has the potential of placing innocent Gazans in jeopardy while they are in the proximity of IDF soldiers which could be used to impart the story to give the media that Israelis had committed a suicide attack on the innocent Gazans who were unfortunate enough to be within a United Nations healthcare clinic which had the explosives installed during its construction for just this purpose. The fact that the Palestinians, both in Gaza and with the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), have a habit of projecting their misdeeds onto the Israelis in an attempt to blur any differentiating facts or methods of operations is a well-established tool in their arsenal of media manipulation and other forms of propaganda.

There is one more pernicious side to the funding of the presumed rebuilding of Gaza despite, or possibly because of, the knowledge that as much as half of the construction materials and two-thirds of the monies will end up being utilized to rebuilding the Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terror entities’ infrastructure, weapon stores and ammunition supplies; and that is that it sends the message to these terrorist entities that their actions and constantly repetitive assaults on Israel are fully and completely backed and approved by the rest of the world. It sends the message that the world has the terrorist minions’ backs and is prepared to rebuild their capabilities and rearm and redeploy not only the levels of weapons they had before the conflict but to provide sufficient support to arm them with even bigger and better weapons’ systems for the next round. The camouflaging these efforts under the guise of reconstructing Gaza and rebuilding the homes, clinics, schools and other public structures only fools the consciences of those who make the decisions to provide such aid. There will be no study, honest or otherwise, into how much of the destruction in Gaza was remaining from the last conflict approximately two years ago for which a previous confab was held and funds poured into Gaza and to Hamas for distributing. There was no study after that conflict to determine how much of the apparent destruction was remaining from the previous conflict of two years prior and which had its gala event to ‘rebuild’ Gaza and repair the lives of the Gazan people. This compulsive willingness of the world to rush to the aid of Hamas and company with funds beyond their wildest dreams, well OK, maybe within their most grand and wildest dreams, sends the message that terrorism pays and pays well, but seemingly only if your target is Israel. All over the rest of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) there are efforts to destroy or at least degrade terror entities such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram and others but in Gaza, Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and Lebanon to a lesser extent for Hezballah the world rushes in with their ‘humanitarian’ aid to reconstruct the ‘civilian’ infrastructure always getting the caveat that none of the monies will be siphoned off for terrorist functions and uses like there occurred last time because this time the threats that there will be no repeat of funding should the same actions be repeated, the exact same solemn promises that were given last time right before the monies were distributed with one third going for rearming and rebuilding the terror infrastructure, one third into the pockets of the elite and the leadership and a final third for a façade of reconstruction which will somehow come up short and require additional funds within the year which will also be divided up as noted. This is not a world repeating the same mistakes hoping for a different outcome, that would be insanity. This is a world giving funding assured and comfortable that much of the donations will be diverted for nefarious purposes, some for enriching the leadership and those who need to be rewarded for their efforts in support of giving the terrorists an acceptable front to place before the world and some more for the necessities for further terrorist efforts against Israel and perhaps some scraps will remain to make a small effort at rebuilding such that the efforts will warrant further funding. It has never ceased to amaze me how many times the sewage treatment plant in Gaza has been given the necessary funding for its repair and even a couple of times for its replacement yet it still overflows every year during the fall and winter rains. It still is minimally if at all functioning and is probably poised to overflow and malfunction here again fairly soon which will give Hamas and the Palestinian Authority an additional reason to beg for more aid. This sanctioning of the terror war against Israel cannot end before the world comes to grips with the fact that as long as Israel is able to defend against the terrorist entities, Israel will not disappear no matter how much the world desires such, sorry.

The funding of the terrorists this time around had a nice new twist to the story, a unity government free from the influences of terrorists such as Hamas. Never mind that one of the members of this technocrat unity government is the former utilities chairman for Gaza and the Hamas government and that though technically without power, Mahmoud Abbas still appears to be standing over all including the acting head of the unity government. The world also placed their full faith and honor on the single meeting of the unity government in Gaza a few short days before the Cairo fundraiser convention aiming to give just that appearance, as it was announced and explained by Hamas why they permitted this obvious challenge to their sovereignty over Gaza. This thinly veiled hoax should not have fooled anybody with more than two brain cells but somehow managed to fool some of the most brilliant, educated, savvy and knowledgeable people the world has to offer. People such as the Lady Catherine Ashton, United States Secretary of State John F. Kerry, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Jude, Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende, Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al-Attiyah, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and of course Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri along with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Delegates representing some fifty nations and twenty regional and international NGOs (non-governmental organizations), many of which joined in on the condemnations of Israel which peppered the discourse of the conference. Some blamed Israel for being unwilling to make the necessary sacrifices to allow for a viable Palestinian state which would exist side-by-side with Israel in peace and security. Others placed the blame for making this convention necessary on the blatant Israeli aggressions against Gaza and Israeli use of disproportional force. Some would denounce the “international silence” that surrounded Gaza’s destruction. This added a little flavor from the Durban conferences to the event.

Everyone attending the event in Cairo would have denied their understanding that the Palestinian unity government will have served its purpose and was facing being dissolved in relatively short notice. The unity government would likely meet its demise far more quickly than it took to bring it to life as it required months of debates and arguments spread throughout the many meetings, many of which included the most base and vulgar threats. The initial need for the unity government was to allow for a path which Hamas could utilize to take control of Judea and Samaria as well as Gaza but without the need to resort to violence. That need presented the Hamas leadership a problem as polls indicated a neck-and-neck race with the outcome undeterminable until the vote. Hamas could not trust leaving such an important step for their control on all of the Palestinian areas to the people so they proceeded to campaigning against Israel, literally. Hamas knew that if they were to initiate a conflict with Israel and thus be provided a center platform before the media and the world they could sharply influence the vote by casting Abbas as too timid and fearful of the Israelis to properly reach the Palestinians’ rightful victory of extinguishing Israel and founding Palestine from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. They also realized that as they had yielded power granting Abbas to lead the unity government that the world would necessarily need to lay much of the blame for the conflict on Abbas despite the fact that they needed to address Hamas in order to reach any ceasefire or treaty. The conflict did attest that Hamas was the strong horse willing to strike Israel and challenge the IDF but the propaganda victory did not suffice in making all of the top Hamas leadership happy. Haniyeh was satisfied that Hamas had done enough for him to win any election but Mashaal did not see this in his cards. This led to Mashaal initiating his Plan ‘B’ which would have removed Abbas, Fatah and all of the non-Hamas leadership of the Palestinian Authority and replace them with Hamas members and leadership. This was the coup attempt which Israeli security, Shin Bet, discovered as they covertly surveyed the field of battle and all the other doors which might be opened. They detected the door for a Hamas attempted coup open and with the assistance of the IDF arrested most of the instigators and all of the leadership which was within Israeli zones of operations. This saved Abbas who also used the foiled coup attempt to force Mashaal to make further concessions threatening to reveal his role in the coup thus poisoning the political field for Mashaal and potentially Hamas as well. This and other intuitions show that Hamas will not likely take control of the top seat of power in the Palestinian Authority, that being Chairman Abbas’s position which he plans on keeping until death does he depart, and that is exactly how he will leave his office and Hamas realizes this. Abbas has cancelled all schedules for elections for his position almost countless times and any thought of such an election playing out now is delusional. It is the fact that Abbas will not relinquish his seat of power as he realized that without this power he will likely be murdered and the fact that Hamas is just fine with that necessity and would murder Abbas in the blink of an eye to gain power themselves. Such is the standoff which is as firm as any rocks on which to bash and shatter any unity government. And yes, we have all been here before. At the moment of this writing the situation is that Abbas will only leave his seat of power over Fatah and the Palestinian Authority feet first and wearing a toe tag and Hamas cannot and will not allow any unity government to proceed without elections being held for Abbas’s seat as chairman and even should they lose, no matter how unlikely that would seem, they would continue to pursue taking complete control and until then they will retain their power in Gaza. This would mean that the unity government’s days are numbered and will meet its demise as the monies from the pledges start rolling in. Hamas stands assured in their perceptions that very few if any of the pledging nations would make their payments actually contingent on Abbas being the supervisor and guiding hand over all the funding thus denying Hamas their use of the majority of the funds for their own ends. Thus dies another unity government and we just got to know you.

When in Cairo at the Fund Hamas and Islamic Jihad and World Terror Supporting Gala one expects no small amount of fawning over Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority and its latest unity government and denunciations of Israel and Zionism. It can perhaps be excused to air an amount of acrimony while criticizing Israeli use of disproportionate power and possibly asking rhetorically if the amount of destruction in Gaza might have possibly been averted and announce grand promises to alleviate the suffering of the residents of Gaza. All of Israel would love to alleviate the suffering in Gaza if it were to be accompanied by a real peace with security and an end to rockets landing on the unfortunate citizens in towns bordering Gaza to the east such as Sderot, Ashkelon , Ashod, Be’er Sheva, and the Kibbutzim along the Israeli southern border with Gaza as well as any escalations where hundreds of rockets per day rain down on the residents listed and additionally on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Netanya and the bordering towns and neighborhoods which account for over seventy percent of the Israeli population. We even accept that there is no mention of these victims of the recent conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and it was a conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad and not with the people of Gaza except in as far as they served as a protective shield for the Hamas and Islamic Jihad war machine and the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist army which was raining rockets into Israel. We have learned that what Western representatives say in Cairo and other Arab cities is to be mostly ignored by Israel as long as corrections are offered by our political leadership and the perfidy and lying remains in Cairo and other Arab cities and not be taken out into the general rest of the world. That is not what happened yesterday and the denunciations of Israel going to an international setting must be answered with some truths which remain obscured by these righteous representatives of the Western nations and the purveyors of honorable truths go so far awry straying into areas which can only be classified as the new blood-libels of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism with a few exception such as the current Canadian government under Prime Minister Harper.

Perhaps the best place to start is with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon who blamed the conflict with Hamas and its terrorist allied entities on the Israeli occupation in Gaza. There has been absolutely no occupation in Gaza by the Israelis since the disengagement where Israel tore out their emotional hearts wringing hands at the wretched scene of IDF soldiers dragging sobbing women and children from their homes and neighborhoods, tearing down the Synagogue to prevent its desecration, and threatening the older men and younger adults, both men and women, and eventually dragging them down from the roofs of their homes and community centers forcing them into buses to be transported to nowhere, a nowhere which was spread around southern and central Israel placing them in inadequate makeshift mobile homes, many of which had no electricity, sewage, or water hooked up as of yet and there they remained while Israel at first took care but slowly their plight faded from the consciousness and many of them have yet to recover and recollect their shattered lives to this day. If this had been the limit of the sadnesses of those days and that horrific sacrifice but it did not end there. What was mostly shielded from Israeli citizens’ eyes was the even more horrific scene of Israeli Security Police and IDF soldiers exhuming every last Jewish grave disturbing those interred there and reburying them in a cemetery within Israel as had the dead been left there their graves would have been desecrated and possibly their bodies dragged from their resting places to be burned and dragged around in an orgy of horrid unsightly ghoulishness as depraved as any of the ancient sacrifices to Ba’al and other pagan deities. There has not been any Israeli occupation of Gaza and Israelis have not set foot in Gaza since the disengagement except when forced to give a military response to Hamas unceasing rocket fire into Israel such as was the cause of the recent conflict, not any form of occupation.

Then there are the inconsistencies in Western acquiescence to Palestinian demands and their adopting those demands and attempting to foist their compliance on Israel in the name of peace, but they will not bring peace. They say nothing about the demand that all Palestinian occupied lands be free of any Jewish presence while insisting that Israel continue to give full rights to the Arab and Muslim citizens within Israel, something Israel has provided them since her founding and has never challenged or threatened to revoke their equal standing in Israeli society. They not only demand that Israel remove any Jewish presence from Palestinian lands but also give credence to the Palestinian demands that Israel incorporate some five-million Palestinian refugees and provide them with Israeli citizenship and assure that they receive adequate housing and other privileges. Somehow this is what defines equity and fairness to the minds of many of the Western elite. In Israel this equates to the European propensity for anti-Semitism and their recent and seemingly endless obsession with destroying the state of Israel and making it into simply another Arab state with no regard for the continued safety of the Jews. There is also the wrongheaded agreement with the canard that all the Jews in Israel originated from Europe and that the Jews in Israel are actually European colonialists. Israel as a Mandate Land was treated as a British colony from before 1920 until finally in 1948 when Israel was born. The Israelis were not the colonialist power as Britain was the occupying colonial power. Further, by 1950, two years after her founding, Israeli Jewish population was virtually equally consisting of Jews who emigrated from Europe and Jews emigrating from the Middle East and Northern Africa as the numerous Arab and Muslim nations made concerted and even overt acts to rid themselves of their Jewish populations and in many cases expelling them sending them into Israel. The Arabs know and fully understand that the threatening demand that the Jews return to where they came from is impossible as these very same Arab nations would never allow their Jews and their descendants to return and settle in their lands. Still, the Arabs are echoed by the Western political leadership that all the Jews in Israel originated in the West and mostly are from Europe. These libels also ignore the large Russian influx of Jews once they were permitted to make Aliyah from the Soviet Union. The other mistreatment originating from the Western elite is their ignoring of the hatreds taught in the Palestinian schools and the incitement which permeates their societal activities. The teaching of martyrdom as being a desirable end as long as it is aimed at Israel and the Jews is part and parcel of Palestinian media of every genre. This incitement goes hand-in-hand with their glorification and deifying of terrorists who murdered Israelis by any means including but not limited to ambushes of busses, suicide murder bombings, drive by shootings, rock throwing at and from vehicles, shooting across from one neighborhood to the next, rioting and assassinations of IDF and security police. UNRWA schools and camps teach children from preschool throughout their education that they were from Israeli cities and their most cherished desire is to return to their birth city or city of origin which include Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Akko, Netanya, Tiberius and every other city, town and kibbutz within Israel. This is ingrained into these children’s minds from an early age in order to promote an institution where every child believes that they were uprooted and their destiny is to return to their home in Israel and take the Jewish homes restoring their homeland and their entitlement which must be rewarded.

There are other Westerns echoing, restating or granting credence by not denying Palestinian blood-libels against Israelis and Jews. Many of these are old and discredited only to be given rebirth by the Palestinians and seldom denied or corrected by Western leaders who act as if they fear retribution if they stand up for the truth. The Western leaders refuse to counter the canard that the essays titled “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” are nothing more than a Czarist invention written to justify the pogroms against the Russian Jews by Czarist forces. The Protocols have been exposed for quite some time but have been allowed to be given new life and credence in the Arab and Muslim world without even the slightest denunciation and counter fact from Western leadership. Hitler’s screed “Mein Kampf” is one of the most bought and read books throughout the Arab and Muslim world and is not refuted as the vile and disgusting tome of hatreds, lies and manifestations of a troubled and hateful mind. Instead of denouncing these megalomaniacal writings, Western leaders just ignore this reality and continue printing copies of “Mein Kampf” in Arabic and shipping it to bookstores in the Middle East and North Africa. Western leaders associate equality for the Palestinians as forcing compromises and concessions on Israelis while excusing and justifying Palestinian prevarications and accusations giving them credence and gravitas despite knowing it all to be empty fabrications. Western leadership knows just as many Israeli leftists supporters that the idea of an indigenous Palestinian Arab peoples is simply an invention conceived and formed in Moscow as a pan-Arab club to wield against Israel to beat Israel into submission and eventually to replace Israel with a Palestinian state only to have it then divided between Syria, Egypt and Jordan. They are aware that the Palestinians were brought into being and placed under Yasser Arafat who is an Egyptian and if one traces the family names of the Palestinian leadership over the years one finds their family names indicate they originate from Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and even further astray throughout the Arab world and none were indigenous to the region. Western politicians are aware that the Palestinians have no relation to the Philistines, the Canaanites or any of the other peoples from the general area which is Israel, let alone having roots which date back nine-thousand years as claimed by Mahmoud Abbas.

The Europeans and the rest of the World knows that the truth is the idea of a Palestinian people was crystalized in 1964 with the founding of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) which had as it leadership Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas as his second in command. The PLO Charter sets as their goal the liberation of all of Palestine and defines this as all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with the exceptions of Gaza and the West Bank which are wholly owned lands of the Egyptians and Jordanians respectively. The formation of the PLO, the grandfather of the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, came a full three years before the 1967 Six Day War which saw Israel in a defensive war capture Gaza, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Soon after the Six Day War ended, the United Nations issued their demands for Israel to return most of the gained territory and Israel was to be permitted to retain those lands necessary for secure and defensible Israeli borders. The initial idea actually depicted Israel returning the Sinai Peninsula and retaining at the least the West Bank, which was actually Judea and Samaria in historical references. Israel made peace with Egypt and Jordan, with each relenting their occupied areas of Gaza and the West Bank. Egypt never actually formally claimed Gaza and Jordan annexation of the West Bank was recognized by a mere two nations, Britain and Pakistan. Western governments would reassess the amount of lands Israel was presumed to retreat from in such a manner as once Israel had given Egypt back the Sinai Peninsula, the area from which Israel was now expected to return land was redrawn to exclude the Sinai Peninsula as if Israel had never held the area, let alone returned it to Egyptian control. Carrying this concept to its final and only logical conclusion, should Israel give the Palestinians Gaza and the West Bank then those lands would be removed from the equation and after a few years when the Palestinians once again claim that all of Israel is occupied area then the pressure will come from Europe, the United Nations, the United States and the world to return further lands to the Palestinians. There may even be a demand for Israel to surrender the entirety of the Negev Desert allowing for the formation of national homelands for the Bedouin tribes. Just think about that one for a moment, a homeland for Bedouins who wander an area but do not settle anywhere, well, anywhere except Israel it seems. The end result appears to be taking all of Israel and leaving the Jews nationless, an idea which was first given credence by the Romans who dispersed the Jews from Judea and claimed to have destroyed the Jewish nation into perpetuity. This definition of the Jews as homeless and nationless was adopted by the Roman Christian Church (Later to become the Catholic Church) who added to the nationless degradation of Jews that this was G0d punishing the Jews for not becoming Christians who now replaced the Jews thus rendering the Jews to scorn and a future without a nation again in perpetuity. Perhaps this is the origin of the European inability to accept the existence of Israel as a state for the Jews; it undermines their own self-worth to recognize the Jewish nation. This also is something the Muslims got from their Christian neighbors and have adapted this definition of the Jews as well. It also seems that the Muslims have also adapted that idea as an eventuality for the Christians amongst others. Of course this progression is not possible as long as there is a Jewish Israel, thus a Jewish Israel must be resolved before history can proceed, or at least that appears to be the driving force behind much of this animosity, an animosity on a level not seen since Rome sacked Carthage, or since when Rome scattered the Judeans from Judea. Somehow we are now told that Judea was never Jewish and this makes sense exactly how? Rest on that thought.
