Today the typical situation which is used by Israel’s nefarious enemies will use to cast Israel as the evil force continuing the cycle of violence. Once they start pointing to the fact that Israel has not ceased their attacks despite the Palestinians agreeing to a new three day ceasefire then their supporters and their useful idiots and their cohorts in hating all things Israel which includes extremist right wing nationalists, far leftist anti-capitalists, plain old anti-Semites and others who simply are looking for something to protest or hate will all come flying out of the woodwork with the ready-made signs and chants anxious to excoriate Israel contending that the Israelis are viscous barbarians who live to murder innocent Palestinians. The way this operates is one of the plethora of terrorist groups, or some combination; agree to a ceasefire such as this weekend when the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Islamic Jihad all agreed to renew a seventy-two hour ceasefire but when the time to execute came Hamas continued firing rockets into Israel forcing the IAF to respond to defend the Israeli civilians with an attempt to silence the Hamas rocket launching terrorists. Meanwhile both the Palestinian Authority and Islamic Jihad are claiming that Israel has refused the ceasefire and are continuing to bomb Gaza despite their ceasefire agreement. They know that the mainstream media will transmit their plaintiff lament of deception word for word and then add their own commentary forcing the deceit to another level. Next thing you know there are protests across North America, Europe and the rest of the Western world. These demonstrations will instantly appear whenever Israel comes under attack and is forced to defend her citizens. It is a unique occurrence reserved solely for the Israelis.

There has been a viscous war ravaging all of Syria going into its third year and yet there has been nary the major demonstration. The violent land dispute between Russian President Putin and the Ukraine had its share of demonstrations in the news, mostly from within the Ukraine but only limited play-time around the rest of the world. There is ISIS who is crowning their announcement of their forming the next Caliphate with the blood of thousands of Christians which one would expect at least some protests, but mostly silence as their slaughter of innocents continues. Since President Obama had ordered airstrikes against ISIS we just might see some protests now, against those airstrikes, not ISIS. Mind you, the violent abduction of over two-hundred school girls in Nigeria by the Boko Haram terrorist group did manage a hashtag demonstration on Twitter which even got a determined angry First Lady but limited street demonstrations, very limited. The sporadic cross-border violence between Afghanistan and Pakistan has been completely ignored by the protest anything groups. All of the various nations in South and Central America which have spurred the child emigration into the United States as desperate parents shipped their children off hoping they would find the promise of a decent future has gained some demonstrations, against the children illegally entering the United States, not against the misery and violence which spurred these children’s parents to such desperation. Spin a globe while blindfolded, stop it and point randomly until you hit a nation and the odds are fairly even that you will be pointing to one of the numerous hot spots of violence, almost all of them unprotested by the perpetually perturbed who usually are ready to protest for any cause. But have Israel come under attack and launch a retaliatory strike and then you would think the world had caught fire by the immediate throngs demonstrating across the globe.

The truth is that the terrorist groups starting with Hamas and Islamic Jihad as the big two and numerous smaller outfits which include but are not limited to al-Qaeda in Gaza, ISIS, small groups attached to Fatah, and PFLP will all combine their efforts to cast Israel in the worst possible light. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are known for their willingness to sacrifice as many innocents as necessary to make it appear Israel is slaughtering these civilian victims of this horrific propaganda ruse. They have also learned that by dressing their fighters in civilian clothing that when a terrorist falls in combat they simply need remove his firearm and any other military gear and now they have another civilian ready for the cameras. Often the media are brought to the place where there had been terrorists struck in an Israeli airstrike who had been sanitized and then shown and photographed by the media. Some of the media who work Gaza as their assigned beat have been induced into providing support for the terrorist interests while others are simply intimidated into assisting in the terrorist rouses presenting exactly what Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the others wish for the world to witness. Any media operating in Gaza or the West Bank area under complete Palestinian Authority rule are required to have their reports approved before they are permitted to transmit or file their story. Any media personnel who report stories or file pictures or videos which cast the terrorist as, say, terrorists, those filing such reports, videos, or pictures are refused any further ability or access to Gaza or other terrorist controlled areas. In Israel the media has the advantage of freedom of the press and are permitted to report everything as they see fit. This even includes reporters and others who are known Israel bashers or even outright anti-Semites, anti-Zionists or reporters for Al-Jazeera. Is it any wonder why Israel receives critical media that actually questions and challenges Israel on their every reason and action while Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Palestinian Authority and other terrorist groups receive such supportive reporting hiding the horrors and illegal actions such as their firing their rockets and mortars from amongst civilian homes, storing military stores such as rockets and explosives in Mosques and UNRWA schools, surrounding their fighters during firefights with children, using their children to explode suicide belts in public places inside Israel and aiming their rockets and mortars toward Israeli civilians rather than military targets. And this ignores the entire misinformation campaign which had become known as “Pallywood” which I will leave to your search engine to provide the evidence.

Once one takes the time to actually inspect and research the truth and discard the hyperbole and propaganda and a whole new picture and reality appears before your eyes and in one’s mind. Once you cast off the misinformation and group-think, researching the kernels of truth which often are reported in more remote and less popular news sources Israel takes on a whole new perspective and her struggle becomes one with which is at the forefront of the oncoming battle between modern progressive society and regressive barbarism. Doubt this at your own peril but there are reports of ISIS making plans to ally with Hamas and Islamic Jihad joining their terror war to destroy Israel and cleans it of its non-Muslim population. The further you dig into the real news the more you will realize that there is no difference between ISIS and Hamas, Boko Haram and Fatah, Hezballah and al-Qaeda or any of the other pairings of Islamic terrorism. Hamas is supported by Turkey, Qatar and Iran while ISIS is supported by Turkey, while Hezballah is an arm of Iran but ISIS and Hezballah are warring against one another inside the Syrian civil war. The alliances are confusing until one realizes that the Muslim infighting will disappear tomorrow if any Muslim force gained an ability to defeat the Western nations in one great conflagration. Until that one preeminent Islamic entity rises above the rest and shows that capability, the many different power bases within Islam will beck the wide array of terrorist forces as they pose the greatest destructive capabilities currently able for Islam to wage against the Western advanced nations. That is where Israel’s part in this struggle is apparent; Israel is the test case for the rest of the advanced Western nations. Should the Islamic forces ever destroy Israel the rest of Islam will take the lessons learned and apply them to conquer the remainder of the world bringing the entire world under their control; an unavoidable set of events they foresee are coming near to fruition. We hear reports and predictions that Islamic influence is rising to a tipping point in much of Europe, yet outside the Islamic nations of Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kosovo, Albania, Herzegovina, Macedonia which has a historically large Muslim population, and Cyprus which consists of a population which is half of Greek origin and half Turkish origin; the rest of Europe averages well under ten percent indigenous Muslim populations with the majority of nations well below five percent. Many leading military tacticians have claimed that Israel acts much like the cork in a champagne bottle which once removed would open the proverbial floodgates of Muslims into Europe, and some claiming that such an influx might be at the head of an attacking army hoping to initiate the new and their hoped for final expansion of Islam to take what they believe is its rightful place ruling the entirety of planet Earth. Whether these predictions are valid is something I would just as soon not test. Unfortunately, if you go by much of the media coverage of this latest conflict initiated by Hamas by abducting three Israeli teenage boys and murdering them then firing over a thousand rockets into Israeli over the ensuing three weeks before Israel retaliated, then one would believe that much of the Western world would desire such a test, including many European nations. Go figure.

Hamas Aiming to Win the Peace

When trying to determine which side proved victorious in the recent Hamas initiated conflict with Israel one needs to include all the disparate and varied venues in which the contest was fought. One need measure the delivery of damage to military forces and equipment, destruction of infrastructure, protection of civilians, media coverage and commentary around the world and public opinion around the globe. No matter the actual wins and losses amongst these criteria, the single most important item is winning the peace, attaining your goals in the resulting accords, treaties and most important the realities on the ground once the combat has ended. In the last two conflicts between Hamas and Israel the winner of the peace was undetermined as Israel did receive a period of peace and quiet without rockets raining down on her towns and cities while Hamas was able to smuggle in more rockets to replace those lost through attrition, usage and Israeli destruction of rocket stores. In the past Hamas had a definitive advantage over Israel in the propaganda war as Hamas leveled numerous charges of war crimes such as Israeli strikes having struck schools, hospitals and other civilian structures which would normally be outside of acceptable targets and the IDF took too long in determining whether the accusations were valid or false. Even once the IDF had the truth and answered these specious charges their responses were delayed beyond anybody’s memory of which accusation they applied to and the damage of the accusations had already been accomplished. The current conflict the Israeli media management was vastly improved but still ran up against the highly polished media manipulation and propaganda from Hamas. The main problem Israel runs up against is Israel had a free press which applies to the Israeli media as well as the international media even including those sources antagonistic to the Israeli government and that openly supports Hamas while there is no freedom of the press in Gaza and all stories are monitored and any diversion from the Hamas directed story line can get a reporter expelled and his credentials invalidated, a threat which is usually sufficient to force a compliant media which carries the Hamas line of propaganda and spreads it as if it were truthful reporting.

Some media is complicit with the aims of media and is willing to stand against Israel for purely political reasons which can be witnessed in many of the antagonistic and accusatorial interviews where Israeli politicians and spokespeople are met with assaults, challenges and charges of spreading lies and propaganda. I witnessed one such broadcast while watching a tape of an evening news broadcast where Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had been requested to be interviewed and the newscaster went through a familiar denigrating accusations demanding the reason for so few Israeli fatalities, especially of civilians, and accusing the Prime Minister of allowing war crimes because more Palestinians had died than Israeli civilians. This line of denunciatory questioning continued the entirety of the interview with the news anchor interrupting Prime Minister Netanyahu in mid-sentence as he attempted to explain, simply to accuse Israel and his managing of the war as being disproportional and Israel guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity. After dismissing everything the Israeli Prime Minister stated and immediately after he cut short the interview rather curtly, the newscaster followed-up before cutting to commercial break by reading what he deemed a press release by Hamas word for word without any commentary seeming to present their report as factual after all but directly calling the Israeli Prime Minister a liar. The biggest two areas where Israel lost this conflict were in the left-leaning world news casts, media and amongst academia where Hamas propaganda was presented as factual and Israel was considered guilty of any charge any source cared to bring and whenever Israeli representatives were permitted to give the Israeli side they were met with animosity and inflamed indignance with the only phrase being disproportional and the singular most line of queries demanding an explanation as to why there were not more Israeli civilian casualties. Their answers were almost universally cut short simply to demand an explanation as to why there were not more Israeli deaths. It got to the point that one starts to hear them asking where are the dead Jews; we want more dead Jews in place of their effrontery, in place of journalistic integrity.

Looking purely at the cold and hard facts, the civilian victims inside Gaza are the saddest of the end results of this entire conflict. We have already covered the reasons behind much of the loss of life in Gaza and the far fewer casualties being suffered in Israel. It comes down to the fact that Israel has spent the past twenty years and billions of Shekels developing the Iron Dome and building shelters where needed and changing building codes to require every new apartment and home to come equipped with a reinforced rocket-proof safe room. That is where Israel used their concrete while in Gaza Hamas used millions of dollars, if not billions, and tons upon tons of concrete to build a complex of tunnels making up an entire underground system which could have provided a safe haven for the Palestinian people had they been permitted to hide below ground where the Hamas fighters hid to escape the air attacks. Hamas also invested heavily in rockets and even invested in larger warheads and longer range rockets which they hid underground, in UNRWA schools, in Mosques and in civilian homes. When the sorties flown by Israel is compared to the numbers of rockets Hamas fired since the beginning of the escalation of rocket fire executed by Hamas after the abduction of three Israeli teens who they murdered, the numbers are basically comparable with Israel dropping slightly more explosives compared to the Hamas rain of rockets. The main difference in civilian casualties was the efficiency of the Iron Dome Systems and the Israeli society’s ability to utilize shelters and safe rooms which were built by the Israeli government or subsidized by the Israeli government. As far as Hamas firing rockets from amongst their civilian population and even near places where the Gazans were kept in refugee shelters and the institution by Israel of dropping leaflets and making phone calls warning Gazans of approaching or imminent airstrikes or IDF infantry actions in the near future and one can see the difference of the attitudes between the Israelis and Hamas. The one true statement describing this situation was that Israel showed more concern and care for the civilians in Gaza than did Hamas.

Still, after all has been said and done and all the countering voices have faded into the past, the one victory which will remain and the only one that truly matters is who wins the peace. This will be an easily measured contest. Israel has demanded that the Gazan terrorist groups be disarmed and demilitarization of Gaza while Hamas demands open borders, and operating port facility and an international airport so as to maximize their ability to import additional weapons and also more advanced missiles to replace unguided rockets as well as advanced weapons systems such as armor, military aircraft, newer rifles, explosives, and an endless supply of concrete and tunneling machines in order to rebuild and improve their infiltration tunnels to facilitate larger and more murderous terror assaults on Israeli communities throughout Israel. What the world forces who will attempt to mediate these treaty discussions will most likely offer is a solution which they will claim opens up all of Gaza to the rest of the world and also will receive guarantees from Hamas that they will demilitarize all of Gaza including themselves and the other terrorist structures and groups.

Then there will come the most difficult portion of the negotiations, ascertaining who will have the responsibility and power to monitor that both sides are respecting their word. Determining if Israel had complied will be a relatively easy task while assuring whether Hamas has lived up to their promises will be a somewhat more difficult endeavor. Israel has already had some seriously flawed experiences with European monitors who had been assigned to monitor the Rafah crossings between Gaza and the Sinai Peninsula. Within a few weeks at their post the European monitors decided that monitoring the Gaza Egypt border might be too dangerous and they packed up and returned to Europe leaving the border unregulated. The only real and effective way of determining whether or not Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other terror groups in Gaza have honestly disarmed is to wait a few years and once they begin raining missiles which have accurate guidance systems and larger payloads being capable of delivering them anywhere in Israel, then we will know the answer was they were not complying with the agreement and simply made a promise they never intended to keep. It is called Taqiyya which permits Muslims to lie to non-Muslims if it in any way aids the Muslims in their goals and helps to spread Islam to the rest of the globe. Then once again the news reports will complain of any disproportional force used by Israel as the Iron Dome might prove to be just as exemplary in its performances against missiles as it had been against the rockets. Still the Israelis will be best served by practicing running hastily into the shelters because, if Hamas is permitted open passage and an open port, it will not be long before the missiles and remaining rockets begin to fly. Needless to say, but at that point there will be no further use of the monitors as the actions of Hamas and supporting terrorists groups will have already proven their incapacity to prevent the rearming of Hamas transforming them from a terrorist groups into a terror army similar in size and capability of ISIS. With an open sea port and international airport, perhaps we might witness the forming of an alliance merging Hamas with ISIS making for a force to be reckoned with and posing a serious danger to Europe and beyond. Such a merger would conceivably lead to ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood working to reestablish the Caliphate in earnest and not simply the mostly ignored declaration by ISIS. Establishing a group with Muslim Brotherhood’s political tentacles with the brute force of ISIS combined with Hamas, which would produce an entity with the capabilities of declaring themselves a Muslim state which could only be ignored at one’s own peril.

Welcome to the New Middle East

There are many who like to cast aspersions on United States President Barack Obama and his foreign policy expertise. Well, it appears that President Obama has done something which has seemed impossible to previous leaders from across the globe and within Israel; he has melded a unified Israeli population amongst its Jews, Christians, Druze and across many other lines of distinction. Even Haaretz has rebuked President Barack Obama, United States Secretary of State Kerry and their peace proposal which demanded an Israeli stand down and a complete surrender granting Hamas their wildest dreams for open borders and a complete end to the Egyptian and Israeli blockades which prevented Hamas importing more advances and threatening weaponry. The proposed solution from President Obama actually puts a number of otherwise unusual and unexplainable series of events of the past weeks and months into what now appears to have been a carefully crafted solution to what the American administration has viewed as the main problems and difficulties in the Middle East. Stick with me as this will take a while before it makes sense.

We have seen in the past how President Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan both supported the government under Egyptian President Morsi and the parliamentary coalition headed by the Freedom and Justice Party, both being part of the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. When the Egyptian military under Army Chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi deposed President Morsi and dissolved the Egyptian government claiming to be acting at the will of the Egyptian people, both President Obama and Prime Minister Erdogan protested furiously and demanded that Morsi be returned and the elected government be returned to power. Even after the recent Egyptian elections to democratically choose new governance, Prime Minister Erdogan and President Obama persisted in their support and efforts to reinstate the Muslim Brotherhood into the leadership and control over Egypt. This unyielding support of the Muslim Brotherhood would eventually lead to the dissolving of any moral authority that President Obama could claim with many in the Middle East including numerous former American allies such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel.

In complete agreement with President Obama supporting the Muslim Brotherhood would come his similar support for the Muslim Brotherhood representative in the Palestinian political arena, Hamas. In the current conflict between Hamas in Gaza and Israel in response after Hamas operatives had abducted three Israeli teens and murdered them and the ensuing rocket barrages by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists on Israeli civilian populations from the southern tip of Israel almost to the Lebanon border in the north, there had been numerous calls for ceasefires, both general and humanitarian. Most of these requests were ignored by those launching the rockets from within Gaza, even those which Israel had accepted and was observing until the rockets raining down became impossible to ignore. Even the ceasefire requested by Hamas was broken by rocket fire within Gaza within the initial three hours of the twenty-four hour ceasefire. The attempts by the Egyptian government to form a ceasefire in which Israeli and Hamas representatives could meet and attempt to reach an agreement ending the violence were completely rejected by Hamas. This was not entirely unexpected as Hamas had been providing support and aid in the Muslim Brotherhood efforts to regain their control over Egypt from the military and the ensuing newly elected government which placed Hamas in a position where they would necessarily need to reject any proposals from an Egyptian government they refused to recognize as legitimate. This eventually led to the arrival of United States Secretary of State Kerry carrying out the vision of a new peace from President Obama.

Secretary Kerry attempted to force the view of the perfect resolution to the current Hamas Israeli conflict which would have permitted a cessation of violence, the selling point that bringing the violence to a close would be in Israeli interests, but only as a path to recognizing and granting the demands expressed by Hamas in order to end the violence. This included forcing Egypt to open the Rafah Crossings to complete and open trade as well as the opening of all crossings from Gaza into Israel and the termination of the maritime blockade of the Gazan coast by Israel. The plan Secretary Kerry presented at the behest of President Obama would have provided Hamas with completely open borders, a newly refurbished seaport and a rebuilt international airport with the complete freedom to import of arms to satisfy their wildest dreams. This would serve a number of principles and events which President Obama would fully support and facilitate. The most obvious would be empowering the Muslim Brotherhood by providing them a base of operations bordering the Sinai Peninsula where they could equip and train an army with which to regain their iron-fisted rule over Egypt. This would also speed up the completion of President Obama’s hopes for the new Palestinian Authority unity government by allowing Hamas to arm themselves with sufficient weapons to take control over Judea and Samaria (West Bank) in a similar coup as they used to take control of Gaza. The ideal unity Palestinian government according to President Obama placed Hamas in the leadership positions and forced Fatah and Mahmoud Abbas in a subordinate role if allowed any positions at all. It was this betrayal of Mahmoud Abbas which so infuriated Haaretz and those on the extreme left in Israel and managed to place them supporting Prime Minister Netanyahu and the continued offensive to completely end any Hamas in any future scenario for the Palestinian people.

The crucial overstep committed by President Obama was the timing of his phone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on Sunday. According to the Israeli media, here is an excerpt of said conversation;

Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities – particularly airstrikes.

Netanyahu: What will Israel receive in return for a ceasefire?

Obama: I believe that Hamas will stop firing rockets – silence will be met with silence.

Netanyahu: Hamas violated all five previous ceasefires; it is a terrorist organization which is dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Obama: I repeat and expect Israel to unilaterally stop all its military activity. The pictures of destruction from Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

Netanyahu: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas the military and diplomatic advantage.

Obama: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas on the basis of the 2012 understanding [following the end of Operation Pillar of Defense - ed.], including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza,

Netanyahu: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It is impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

Obama: I trust Qatar and Turkey, and Israel is in no position to choose its mediators.

Netanyahu: I object, because Hamas is able to continue and to fire rockets and to use tunnels for terror attacks…

Obama – interrupts Netanyahu mid-sentence: The ball is in Israel’s court – it is obligated to end all military activities.

This conversation took place in the midst of the meeting of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Security Cabinet. Their discussion was reportedly deciding what would be the goals going forward with the efforts against Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest of the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. They were discussing simply finding and destroying the tunnel systems or actually stepping the offensive to the next level and utterly destroying the infrastructure which supports Hamas and the rest of the terrorist rulers in Gaza.

There were a select few within Israeli society who called for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the casualties in Gaza claiming that the civilian casualties were reflecting harm on Israel. They touted the efforts as those they expected Secretary Kerry would present and that President Obama would offer. They honestly expected that Israel had a friend in the White House, not that Hamas had the White House completely supporting their end desires, open borders through which to import the weapons of their wildest dreams. When they realized that their support had been undercut and eviscerated every inch of support they thought they had supporting their position, these people were left standing with their mouths open wide in disbelief as they found they had been supporting a lie and that lie had been laid bare.

Now for a little conjecture which ties otherwise disparate events and weaves them into whole cloth. We had been perplexed as to what Qatar would do with eleven-billion-dollars in advanced military equipment from the United States with the blessings of the Obama Administration which includes Patriot missile batteries, Javelin anti-tank defense systems and Apache attack helicopters. Qatar already has sufficient forces to provide for their protection as there are sufficient United States military forces on bases within Qatar who could easily provide all the military protection they could ever desire. Additionally, the Qatar military predominantly consists of foreign paid fighters, so such additional military equipment made little sense. This produced a conundrum as Qatari military already had more than sufficient top line arms and advanced systems including armor, aircraft and artillery. But if Hamas could somehow procure open borders, and especially a seaport, then Qatar just might have had a solid reason for making such a procurement. Might it have been probable that Qatar was actually executing the shopping wish list of Hamas under an understanding that President Obama could force Israel into allowing Hamas to have open borders and to end the maritime blockade thus facilitating the export of somewhere in the neighborhood of eleven-billion-dollars of top of the line military equipment from Qatar to Gaza and into the hands of Hamas and their terrorist cohorts to use in what they perceived as their final destruction of Israel. This sounds completely unbelievable except for the fact that President Obama and Secretary Kerry sure seemed to support and strongly push to open the borders of Gaza and to empower Hamas and in turn the Muslim Brotherhood possibly making the return of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt, placing the Muslim Brotherhood spawn, Hamas, in power over the Palestinians and giving Hamas the necessary weaponry to defeat their primary enemy, Israel. There is likely nothing which could have driven both extremes within the Israeli Jewish communities closer together, and people doubt that the American foreign policy does not have commendable outcomes.
