Thin Skinned American Leadership Snubs Israel’s Ya’alon

For an administration which has hurled invectives, insults and denunciations by the score at Prime Minister Netanyahu alone and just as many against the several other leading political figures, while demeaning and criticizing every single move taken by the government from defensive moves against terrorism to simply approving houses be built for the growing Israeli population, they sure are poor losers should a single well deserved snide but true comment be fired at their clumsy, toe stepping, vindictive Secretary of State who apparently has saved his disdain from his days of denouncing American troops fighting in Viet Nam before the media and in Senate hearings keeping it ready for any chance to deplore Israel at every turn. These intentional snubs were the American Administration’s punishment for Ya’alon comments made in private but subsequently revealed to the media which reported his comments to include that Secretary Kerry presented a plan so empty of concerns for Israel and with such an aloof imposition that none should object or find quarrel with his plan that he appeared to have been, “…very determined, and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and a messianic feeling…” It was this reference of Secretary Kerry as obsessive and messianic which the Administration took particular displeasure with and for which they punished Minister of Defense Ya’alon. Now that they have evened the score in their petty minds perhaps we can return to acting like adults and not like schools chums trading barbs and slights.

Were I to wish to dwell on the subject of whose feelings have been damaged and who said what about who, I might go on in lengthy terms quoting such conversations as between heads of some renowned European nation and the quippy tit-for-tat one upmanship displayed by the American President, but then I would be tasked with reviewing the slights and rants and then rating them to find the best examples, and who has that much time. Instead, please allow me to mention something which may have come to mind on his return flight while Defense Minister Ya’alon reviewed his meetings and visit to Washington. Hopefully, instead of going over the meetings and the non-meetings, I hope he instead marveled at the displays of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art and the many other museums and galleries Washington has to offer. There will be plenty of time to review notes and report on the discussions and other tedium which go with positions of responsibility. Since it would be unwise for Minister Ya’alon to tempt fate and comment on the refusals to allow him to meet with President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry, I hope he will not hold it against me for taking the privilege of expressing what my feelings would have been, “Thank all that is holy I did not have to suffer those insufferable bores so full of self-righteous indignations and unbelievable buffoonery they pass off as intelligent commentary. Such unknowledgeable dolts should never have attained high office but such is the fate of direct elections. The Administration reportedly desired cancelling Minister Ya’alon’s meeting with Samantha Power, the President’s Former Security Advisor, Current United States United Nations Ambassador and proven Israel hater who during one of her interviews from before she ever rose to high position but thought herself as worthy, she expressed that she believed that the United States should send military forces to enforce a settlement and to protect the Palestinians from Israeli aggressive policies by stationing United States military forces in Gaza and the West Bank. One must wonder whether that interview was introduced into the conversation, though I doubt so or Minister Ya’alon might have faced arrest for expressing indignities and causing an effrontery to a member of the administration. Had I been Minister Ya’alon I might have cancelled such a meeting myself so as to avoid so sullying myself. Then perhaps I am being too harsh.

I had mentioned quite a while back that there was only one way for the Europeans and Americans to assist in solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I also stated they were all too full of themselves and thought way too highly of their understandings of what was really at fault and what needed be done. Their insistence that Israel was resisting taking the steps required to reach a peace with the Palestinians as they had always been too demanding and paranoid to reach any peace. This was probably made obvious to these know-it-alls when they watched the lack of Israeli flexibility in reaching a peace with Egypt in which they returned the Sinai Peninsula and Egypt refused to take back Gaza and the inhabitants within. Oh, wait, that was what happened and apparently as soon as Egypt offered a meaningful and real peace the Israelis performed backflips in order to assure that Egyptian President Sadat received a generous return for peace so he might have something to show in defense of taking such an unprecedented and brave step. The Israeli generosity proved inadequate for the Muslim Brotherhood which subsequently assassinated President Sadat. Oh, but President Obama desires giving that very same bunch of murdering terrorist supporters rule over Egypt regardless of any consequences. Then there was the inability of Israel to make peace with Jordan except that they did and even offered to give the Jordanians legal right to the lands they renamed the West Bank during their illegal occupation of lands originally reserved by treaty for the Jewish state but the Jordanians chose to allow those lands to be returned to their rightful owner, the same lands and owner the world now demands give those territories to a group of terrorist masters. Perhaps the Israelis are not only willing but actually are anxious to accept any real offer of peace but not so quick to commit suicide no matter how joyously that suicide would be received in Europe and apparently with some in the United States.

So, how could the Western nations bring about a real and actual lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis? Well, step one would be to avoid like the plague any more “Cairo International Conference on Palestine Reconstruction Gaza” projects. Every penny, farthing, pence, ruble, or other funds provided for the rebuilding of Palestinian areas in the aftermath of conflicts initiated by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, Palestinian Authority, PLO or other Palestinian terror entities simply is another way of financing terrorism against Israel and sometimes also the Western nations as well. This is not to imply that any such funds will be diverted and go directly into funding terrorist activities and interests, though that is definitely what will occur regardless of what measures are claimed to be put in place, but because such funds relieve the terror groups from having to invest some of their funds and manpower to rebuild after the destruction caused by their aggressions against the Israelis and their intentional ricking harm to Palestinians and their properties. They rarely place the rocket launchers anywhere near their own homes, though Israel has learned to target their homes so they too share the joys of the fruits of their terrorism. The reasoning is basic, if Hamas launches hundreds upon hundreds of rockets into Israel daily for more than a week and the Israelis get somewhat upset and answer the aggressions with some aggressions of their own and Gaza received extensive damage, then if the rest of the world does not tumble head-over-heel to send billions of dollars for reconstruction, then Hamas will be forced to fund rebuilding or face the ire of the Gazan people and bear the brunt of their anger; and since Hamas and all its terror allies are massively outnumbered by the citizens of Gaza, they would lose their sanctuary in the ensuing expressions of Gazan anger at their abuse. There is a reason that Hamas has been able to afford to wage war on Israel uninterrupted every couple of years since taking control of Gaza in a bloody coup divesting the Palestinian Authority out of Gaza. They have collected funds from the trillions of dollars sent to rebuild Gaza after their egregious aggressions against Israel. This is above and in addition to the investments made by Qatar and Iran with one sending weapons, trainers, rocketry expertise and other items for war while Qatar simply sends petro-dollars. There was over five-billion-dollars pledged for Gazan rebuilding and everybody gladly slapped each other’s backs and congratulated themselves on their well-intentioned generosity and assured one another that none of their largess was to end up stolen and diverted from the intended rebuilding of Gaza by Hamas and the other terrorist groups into digging new tunnels and producing bigger and more lethal rockets. They all ignored the boastings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad that rebuilding the terror tunnels had begun immediately after the ceasefire. They ignored a few days later when United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was given a tour of one of the tunnels which was in the process of being rebuilt or survived the Israelis searches which are evidenced in these archived United Nations photographs from his tour shown below while source photos at the United Nation video records for Ban Ki-moon can be viewed here and here.   Some pictures are priceless.

As long as the Western governments prove susceptible to the pleadings for their treasure to rebuild the destruction brought on by terrorist aggressions and the responses they inevitably will incur, then the terrorists will continue with their aggressions and the Western nations will ever faster be parted from their treasure and eventually debt will render them irrelevant as their economies suffer from the foolishness of their actions. One can only hope they realize their investments are causing the recipients of their intentions more horrors and destructions directly resulting from their good intentions. May they come to their senses before too many more innocents pay the ultimate price, especially the noncombatants on both sides.

Has Prime Minister Netanyahu Finally Recognized Jerusalem is Exploding?

Just the end of last week when Prime Minister Netanyahu approached about the violence on the Temple Mount chimed in with the same old canard of keeping the status quo. Perhaps pictures of rioting youths, many wearing the emblematic green headgear signifying their allegiance to Hamas (pictured Below) on the Temple Mount threatening the police and preventing any Jewish Israelis access to the holy grounds during the last weekend of this holiday season will display the threat. These riots, called the ‘Silent Intifada’ due to silence of Israeli authorities, have been roiling and disrupting Jewish and any other than Muslim visitations to the Temple Mount for the past months in a steadily increasing measure of numbers and violence. These rioters arrive early every morning potentially before dawn stocking their supplies of firebombs, rocks, bricks, fireworks and other pyrotechnics, flammables and projectile objects storing them within the al-Aqsa Mosque and other Mosques around the Temple Mount. These assaults have been mostly ignored by the media and allowing for the political leadership to thus far pretend that the problem did not exist. Their mantra used to attempt to brush the problems aside was the call of “Maintain the status quo.” What exactly finally caught sufficient attention forcing the change from passivity to urgency for action is unimportant, the fact something changed is sufficient if this new level of concern and calls for actions are actually followed by changes. So, what are the required changes to bring about a small amount of sanity and equality of access and utilization of the spaces and facilities on the Temple Mount for Muslims, Jews, Christians and others?

The first problem which must be addressed is that of those instigating these disturbances. This must begin with putting an end to the provocations from Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Hamas leadership are financially rewarding the leadership instigating the rioting on the Temple Mount while Mahmoud Abbas has been backing with encouragements of his own providing verbal support claiming that the continued rioting and denial of Jewish access to the Temple Mount is serving the establishments of the Palestinians State and in the service of Allah. These instigations must be placed in reference to the discourse in the Western world where every statement and house planned to be built by Israel is condemned out of hand and often with absolute demands for immediate remedial actions. The world must be made aware and to witness these words and instigations. If that requires buying advertising time on major networks to show the world the truth, then that is what must be pursued. We need the political and other leadership to air these dirty accusations and instigations from Hamas, Abbas , Iran, and throughout most of the world, including the European instigators who come and force confrontations and then release slanted videos demanding that honorable officers who after being provoked, fingers broken by the instigators and his men ridiculed and belittled finally answered with one measured blow gets drummed from service in shame because our leadership shamed all of us by not standing by this commander and simply telling the world that if you come into our country and provoke out military men and women then you too may feel their wrath and let that be a shot across their bow and a warning well sent. Show the world daily the news feeds which depict these animals running in riotous rampages on the holy places of our faith, the Christian faiths and even presumably their own Islamic faith. Let the world see both sides, ours which is of marked restraint and those who viscously act like wild animals seething with bile and anger completely devoid of a shred of humanism.

Let the world witness the truth and they will eventually compare and choose more wisely or reveal their true hatred for our society and our accomplishments in the recent modern history in our ancestral lands. Let us call the world to judge which they want to share their world with, animalistic hatreds or technological advancement, seething hatreds or enforcement of law and order, denial of the holiness of the heart and central jewel of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount or those whose love and reverence for this holy place will only honor and share it with all free of anger, spite or hatreds, just filled with compassion and love. And we must show the world the effort we are to make to cleanse this holy ground so that all may again share our mutually holy place, the Temple Mount, and our effort to make it readily available and accessible for prayer and reverence towards G0d. After the riotous infection has been cleared from the Temple Mount then the Jordanians and their Waqf must be made to understand that if they wish to manage the Temple Mount they must manage it making it suitable and available to all or be replaced by those who will accept making the Temple Mount a place for universal love and worship, revered and kept holy and free of hatreds and violence. But first and foremost, make our holy place where the two Temples once stood sacred again and worthy and accessible for all who wish to honor and revere this place which is the central location for ourselves and others who also hold it sacred. Either all who revere the Temple Mount must be permitted unfettered access under the Waqf or it must be taken from them and governed to permit all equal treatment and respect, nothing less should be acceptable, nothing less.

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.
