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.

The ISIS Cancer is Metastasizing Throughout MENA Within Planet Earth

News reports have attested to the fact that throughout the areas referred to as MENA (Middle East North Africa), the former al-Qaeda groups which had originally pledged their support to Osama bin Laden, which they later transferred them to Ayman al-Zawahiri as al-Qaeda leadership changed with bin Laden’s death, are changing their allegiances one-by-one to ISIS (aka ISIL, IS, Caliphate, but we prefer ISIS and pronounce it {iziz}) and to the self-anointed Caliph, Abu al-Baghdadi, perceiving him as the current strong horse. The latest which occurred this past week were in Nigeria, Libya and on the Libya Tunisia mountainous border area.

The Ansar al-Sharia terror group punctuated their changing their loyalties to ISIS with a parade of vehicles through Darna, Libya. Ansar al-Sharia also has a grip on Benghazi and has been attempting to consolidate and draft more members and then they might see themselves taking the fight to Tripoli and claim the right to lead the nation and attempt to solidify such position by seeking to have as many other terrorist groups, clans and tribal fighters to join with them rather than continue the hopeless fighting which has been tearing Libya apart since Gadhafi was deposed and assassinated.

Boko Haram in Nigeria mostly with some reach into neighboring countries on occasion has declared themselves aligned with Caliph Abu al-Baghdadi and ISIS as well as declaring the areas under their control is an independent nation declaring their independence from the Nigerian government. Their claim is being ignored by the Western powers much as the original ISIS was as it declared itself a state while spreading rapidly across northern and central Iraq meeting its only initial serious opposition when they attempted to move on the Kurdish regions where the Peshmerga Militias put up stiff resistance and even managed to retake areas with presumably air support provided by the United States and those allied with them against ISIS.

The Uqba ben Nafi Brigades have sporadically ambushed Tunisian motorized patrols destroying the vehicles and often most of the soldiers within before melting back into the mountainous impassable region on the Tunisian border with Libya. They have recently claimed to be supporters of ISIS changing from original allegiance with al-Qaeda. Where the Uqba ben Nafi Brigade are not particularly large threat as supremacist and radical Islamic terrorists, the current poor economic state of the Tunisian economy and the fragility of the government which is made up of opposing groups from pure secularists to ardent religious Muslims on to even fanatical Islamist parties presents a particularly susceptible situation for overthrow by any concerted effort by any sizeable terrorist group seeking a nation from which to operate. This means that if ISIS were to decide that the Uqba ben Nafi Brigades were a worthy addition providing a realistic and strong potential that with a relatively small investment of forces could claim all of Tunisia adding it to the areas they claim as part of their Caliphate.

Philippine Islamist militant group Abu Sayyaf has threatened Germany by claiming they plan on beheading one of their two German hostages unless Germany pays a large ransom of two-hundred-fifty million pesos ($5.6 million) and pulls their support for the United States efforts against ISIS in Iraq and Syria to gain the release of both hostages. Communicating in their native Tagalog language they gave a fifteen day deadline. I guess the fact that they only support ISIS and are not declaring their allegiance to ISIS as they have spread enough already and will likely continue their spread across MENA nations.

In Algeria a group claiming alliances with ISIS has threatened to behead a French hostage as they singled out, “the spiteful and filthy French” for severe and serious punishments. They released a video which shows armed men claiming allegiance to Jund al-Khilafa (Soldiers of the Caliphate), an Islamist militant group in Algeria. They pledge allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

There is another ISIS affiliate which has reared its head during the recent Israel conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. One of the many supporting terrorist entities which stood out was the claim that an ISIS deployed group was supporting the Hamas and Islamic Jihad efforts providing training, expertise and fighters as well as munitions. There was no overt proof beyond their announcements but how would anyone see any difference between a rocket from Hamas from a rocket fired by Islamic Jihad or determine which three rockets were the ones Fatah fighters claimed to fire and finally how would an ISIS launched rocket? Even if ISIS had more accurate rockets and did fire them, with the accuracy and efficiency of Iron Dome backed by the hand of G0d as was witnessed near Tel Aviv, even if ISIS had papered their entire rocket with their logo, how would one know or even ever see it before the Iron Dome destroyed it mid-flight. And for the instance where the Iron Dome proved inaccurate so that the IDF soldiers manning the anti-missile battery would witness the Hand of G0d direct the rocket seconds away from striking central Tel Aviv harmlessly shoved out into the empty Mediterranean Sea, the story is towards the end of the article titled How to Fight Terrorist Fanatics Unless You’re Israel with the quotes in bolded italics; please read of this absolute miracle and thank you. I still get a chill reading about the diverting of a rocket on a path to kill hundreds if not thousands depending on where it struck being blown out to sea by a strong wind which was local to overhead of the Iron Dome which had become suddenly inaccurate and unable to hit its target.

The final locations in which one might find small groups aligned with ISIS are across Europe and North America with a slightly higher concentration in Europe followed by the United States. These would be a loosely coordinated rings where no one person would know all of the others in country. This is the usual manner in which infiltrations and subversive groups which will eventually be activated to carry out terror attacks, sabotage and other subversions but otherwise will attempt to blend into the society and not draw attention to themselves. These loosely organized rings may prove the most destructive elements of ISIS by the time all is said and done. The Western nations had best hope that ISIS can be contained sufficiently until strong and determined leadership takes the seats of power in Washington DC, particularly at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Until then the problem the world will face is IS.

Right off the top let me get this straight; I fully support the bombing of any infrastructure which ISIS can utilize to finance their operations including the oil refineries, both stationary and mobile, possibly even more for the mobile because of the increased abilities they provide for refining at any location. Further, I support the bombing of any location where ISIS has been proven to be quartered or any location where ISIS weapons of war, especially the heavy weapons systems stolen from the Syrian and Iraqi military supplies, even if they are placed within built-up civilian areas. Simply stated, I heartily support anything necessary in opposing, fighting and destroying every last vestige of ISIS and any terrorist group which is murdering innocents, performing forced conversions, mass murdering innocent civilians and threatening to spread their murderous intentions and activities throughout every nation simply to fulfill a religious conviction which they claim is a basic tenet demanded by the Quran and the Hadiths of all Muslims under the dogmas of Greater Jihad or any other terrorist entity which make the claim that they must oppress and convert by force under pain of death in service of their deity. That said, I also respect those military and political leaders who instruct and enforce policies and ROE (Rules of Engagement) which honor the sanctity of innocent human life and their properties and possessions to the extent that they take precautions to avoid injury and damage to these innocents and their necessities for life whenever possible and to the greatest extent as long as doing such does not prevent accomplishing the necessary and principle objectives of their mission objectives. All this in mind, I support the efforts made by the United States and their allies.

My question for those who demand that Israel somehow fight against terrorist entities without harming a single blade of grass or disturb even one single delicate spider’s web, let alone anything of greater importance also included is, where is your indignation over the bombing of infrastructure and possible casualties of civilians with the bombing of ISIS in Syria and Iraq? Those who across almost every border and especially those within Israel who demand that Israel cease defending her citizens and instead negotiate with those whose only goal is to murder every last Jew as they wipe our homeland from the map and try to erase the Jewish People from the annals of history are now strangely silent. Where are these very same people and why are they not demanding that the United States cease their bombing of ISIS simply because they desire a nation to call their own and negotiate with ISIS and set borders after which I am sure ISIS will rejoice and peace will reign over the Middle East and ISIS will be satisfied with fair and agreed borders and will cease threatening the world. If such is acceptable and demanded of Israel when facing Hamas which launches rockets generally aiming to strike Israeli population centers and as a part of their charter they claim their highest desire is to establish a homeland from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and murdering every last Jew residing in Israel, how is Hamas truly any different than ISIS. They then have written into their charter the demand that they continue to spread Islam across the globe and murder every last Jew in order to bring on the establishment of Islamic end times and the final battle which results in a world of only Muslims. This is supposed to result with the leadership of Hamas in their rightful place as the leaders beside Mohammad and the holy of Allah who descended to assist in the establishment of a grand Caliphate in the final battle for the purification of the world.

Why should Israel not be supported in their fight for their survival from terrorists who have the same end goals of supremacy over the world as does ISIS? Israel should have every right to fight those terrorists who represent the exact same threat to all of civilization and have chosen to fight Israel initially because they think they know some simple facts that, if they prove valid, would be very sad; yet it appears that too many in the world support these ideas. Their assumptions are that as long as they mostly target Israel and limit their threats to Jews then the world will grant them a special place where despite their having exactly the same designs and end goals as the rest of the Islamist terrorist entities, they will be treated separately and permitted and even financed and supported in their struggle for as long as it takes to destroy Israel. What is unfortunate is how much the actions of the world’s governments, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, statesmen and people of note or repute line up condemning Israel for her efforts to defend her citizens, all her citizens be they Jewish, Arab, Christian, Muslim and any other persuasion or none at all with everything and in every way possible. The extent to which Israel makes the investment and dedication of research, development, testing, refinement and perfecting in order to have a system that functions with reliable consistency to protect her people and allots the funding to build the defensive systems such as the Iron Dome which was the single most valuable asset Israel deployed in the last conflict with Hamas resulting from the aggressions by Hamas in abducting three Israeli innocent teens and murdering them followed by the launching of hundreds of rockets daily into Israel eventually resulting in over three thousand rockets fired into Israel before the conflict ceased (for now). The world demanded why so few Israelis died compared to the Palestinian casualties. There are a number of reasons but the two which are most important are that the number of combatants killed equaled the number of civilians killed which actually is a ratio that exceeds recorded ratios in conflicts and wars throughout history for lowest percentages for civilian fatalities. The other reason was the Iran Dome which intercepted well over 90% of the rockets which the Iron Dome systems computed would land in populated areas and its accuracy in making these determinations was approaching perfection. Next time that terrorists decide that the time is right to launch fierce attacks against Israel try and remember that should these terrorists ever succeed in destroying Israel their next target will be identical to ISIS, the rest of the world even including other Muslims who hold different versions of Islam, just like ISIS, and then pray Israel never falls before those terrorist forces. They are all servants who have surrendered their will and their lives to Allah.

There is a story which was reported by the officer who commanded one of the Iron Dome units which was guarding Tel Aviv that I wish to relate and have waited for the right time. The right time never seems to come so I decided this is close enough. This single event may provide another reason that there were so few casualties, especially fatalities, in Israel despite the massive numbers of rockets rained down on Israeli territory with most close to though not successfully targeting populated areas including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv metropolitan areas. Here is one of the many articles documenting this miracle, praise G0d. The story is partly an answer to the rumor that when asked by a reporter from an Arab news source what was wrong with the ability of the rockets to hit anything in Israel saying, Don’t you aim your rockets? The Hamas Officer’s response was, “We do aim [our rockets], but their G0d changes their path in mid-air.” There might just be something to that officer’s lament as reported by an Iron Dome commanding officer who related the story.
“A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.”

“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.”

“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that…sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a G0d!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of G0d send that missile into the sea.”

The article also relates the witness by Colonel Ofer Winter and what occurred to him and his men during their mission in Gaza. Their assault on the targeted position was delayed for technical, or less likely tactical, reasons as such adjustments in orders and/or timing for units movements and attacks once combat has been initiated, and instead of advancing under the cover of darkness they were going to move after sunrise and in the bright light of day. This alteration could only make their advance and movements more difficult and increased the risks and dangers for his men. When the moment finally came for their advance a strange fog blanketed their movements providing them concealment all the way to their objective. As he said in another article, “Suddenly a cloud protected us.” In a reference to the Bible where it describes how a fog protected the Israelites as they wandered in the desert he called the fog. “Clouds of glory.” Then quoting from Deuteronomy he added, “It really was a fulfillment of the verse ‘For the Lord your G0d is the One who goes with you to give you victory,’” Perhaps the Hamas officer spoke more truth than he knew and perhaps that makes this a great place to end.
