Try, Try, Try Again

What you have with the current attempts by the Obama administration to resurrect the moribund peace process between Israel and the Palestinians is a very sick combination of two adages. What they are is, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again,” combined with, “Insanity is trying the same things over and over again expecting different results.” The best example of these truisms is the recent talks arranged by the United States pressuring Israel to facilitate the conditions required by meeting the bribery demands of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. This precedent of Israelis giving concessions before every new mutation of the peace process has been part and parcel of these negotiations since the onset and drawing up of the Oslo Accords where Israeli bending to Yasser Arafat’s demands was required. There has been absolutely no alteration to this under Abbas who was more than Arafat’s protégé but one of his cofounders of the PLO terrorist group. The main difference between the two Palestinian leaders is in their manner of dress as Arafat had his trademark fatigues with a sidearm strapped to his waist while Abbas prefers the suit of a businessman. Both manners of dress are but costumes worn for the desired effect of presenting the West with an image which makes their alignment with the Palestinians more readily able. Yasser Arafat desired the image of the fighting leader of a revolutionary group in the mold of Che Guevara while Mahmoud Abbas fits his costume to represent the Westernized businessman who is reasonable and ready to make deals and offer an honest debate. The reality is both men see themselves as the leaders of the greatest Jihad of our times dedicated to the destruction of Israel, the Jewish State, and the genocidal slaughter of the Israeli population. Both men have given voice to this goal repeatedly when speaking to their allies in Arabic and spoken of peace when speaking English to the Western press and political entities. This separation of their reputed goal of peace with Israel and their honest aims of annihilation of Israel and her Jewish and other non-Muslim population only works due to the complicity of the Western leadership and media who pretend not to be capable of translating anything said in Arabic and only accepting their preferred truths which are spoon fed them in English.

 

The results of the Palestinian tactics are often difficult to realize as they consist of a creeping progress towards the complete destruction of Israel replacing it with a Muslim state. When the Oslo Accords were first enacted in September 1993, the Palestinians had complete control both civilian and security over Area A of Judea and Samaria (West Bank), Israel had civilian and security control over Area C and there was shared control over the security of Area B. Today the Palestinians are demanding control over Areas C replacing Israel after solidifying their complete autonomy over Areas A and B. Israel has enacted building freezes, removal of checkpoints as well as roadblocks, released hundreds of terrorists from their prisons even to include many who were serving multiple life sentences for multiple murders of Israelis and have agreed to base talks resulting in surrendering over 90% of the disputed lands of Judea and Samaria with agreed land swaps to cover any remainder. Israel has made concession after concession to the point where the debate is no longer how to divide the disputed lands of Judea and Samaria but whether Israel will retain control over Jerusalem, an area annexed legally by Israel soon after being liberated during the defensive conflict known as the Six Day War. Keeping these numerous concessions given up unilaterally by the Israelis, the challenge is to name a single unilateral concession ever made by the Palestinians to demonstrate their sincerity towards the peace negotiations. Agreeing to meet and discuss a peace agreement is not a concession but that is exactly what Israel has bought with their seemingly endless parade of concessions made to the Palestinians simply for the displeasure of talking for an arranged period of time only to have the Palestinians back away from any and every agreement they had made during negotiations and then demand everything Israel had offered in return and more to even consider returning to the negotiations. This is not true negotiation, that is manipulation to achieve eradication by a thousand cuts.

 

The current breakdown of the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians came about well before the delay by Israel in releasing the final twenty-six terror prisoners of the over one-hundred agreed upon as the price to have the Palestinians sit and negotiate resulting in their refusal to compromise on even the slightest of terms. That was the precedent set for these talks, Israel releasing over one-hundred terrorist prisoners in four batches in return for having the displeasure of Palestinian representatives pretend to hold peace negotiations. Almost everybody who has any knowledge of the history of the Oslo Accords two state solution negotiations could and likely did predict that the talks would collapse failing within weeks of the end date without any meaningful progress being shown. In reality, the main theme of the entire negotiations appeared to revolve around the Palestinians demanding that Israel also enforce a comprehensive building freeze over Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem despite such not being the chosen demand by the Palestinians to hold negotiations. To the Palestinians it did not matter that they had chosen terrorist prisoner releases over a building freeze, they demanded both. With just a month or month and a half left in the negotiations the Palestinians started announcing their intent to blow-up the negotiations immediately after receiving the final batch of terrorist prisoners. This along with their continued refusal to recognize Israel as the home for the Jewish people, their not considering any agreement as an end to hostilities and a settlement of all demands, and their demand that certain particular terrorist prisoners be included in the final release, a new demand not presented, discussed or debated yet insisted by the Palestinians in order to continue negotiations even to the end of April as agreed, this caused Israel to delay the final release in order to discuss these new demands and work for a mutually beneficial agreement. This was when the Palestinians launched a media frenzy blaming Israel for every failure of peace talks and other disasters that have befallen the Palestinians while breaking every agreement including the Oslo Accords by once again turning to the international community seeking recognition of statehood.

 

Now we once again find ourselves inbetween periods of negotiations and the entirety of the discussions being held are focused on what concessions will Israel be required to provide in order to enable the Palestinians to agree to continue negotiations? The demands change almost hourly but the central demands are the release of additionally anywhere from four-hundred to four-thousand additional terrorist prisoners which must include some of the more radical and worst of the terror masters such as Marwan Barghouti, a complete Israeli building freeze in all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem, and the immediate pull back by Israel to the pre 1967 Six Day War lines established in 1949 as Armistice Lines ending the state of war between Israel and the six Arab nations which had attacked her a year earlier at her founding and among other demands is the on-again/off-again demand that Israel agree to accept the right of return for Palestinian refugees into Israel changing the demographics of Israel from a Jewish majority to an Arab and Muslim majority. Simply expressed, the Palestinians are demanding that the Israelis surrender on every last final issue and agree to permit the dissolution of Israel as it is known today and make ready the addition of two additional Arab Muslim states, Palestine and Arab Muslim dominated Israel. That dream would be one election of one jihadist pogrom away. Still, should there not be resultant talks in the near term it will not be blamed on the Palestinians ridiculous and outlandish demands but on the Israeli refusal to commit suicide. After these demands make the resumption of talks impossible we can expect to hear not only from the Palestinians about how the Israelis are unwilling to sacrifice for peace but from United States Secretary of State Kerry and numerous other Western spokespeople how Israel squandered yet another possibility for peace. The Palestinians are almost never held accountable as it is far more rewarding to blame Israel and to have demonstrations and reporters covering these stories staying in five-star hotels than it would be to cover say the inhuman conflict going on in Syria or the suicide bombings that are part of a civil war in Iraq staying in hotels that are in an actual war zone. Which would you rather cover; an active war zone from within the fighting or the Israelis inability to sacrifice completely enough to mollify the Palestinians by surrendering all of Israel to them while sitting on the beaches of Tel Aviv. The choice is obvious by the number of first-hand press and editorial reports and articles covering every bit of minutia in Israel and the sketchy reports all of which echo the newswire stories on Iraq and Syria. Yes, the choice is obvious. More soon from the beaches of Nahariya, Israel.

Israel was coerced, pressured and hornswoggled into releasing one-hundred-four terrorist prisoners, most of whom were serving life sentences for multiple murders of Israelis either through their direct actions or as planners who sent numerous homicide-bombers into Israeli central bus stations, shops, malls, restaurants, wedding ceremonies, Bar Mitzvahs, Passover Seders and other places where large numbers could be murdered, simply as a bribe to get Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority to agree to sit and talk for nine months without any guarantee of progress towards making an actual peace agreement. Even from the beginning of this round of the peace process there were comments from numerous Palestinian Authority spokespersons even including the actual negotiators who openly stated that they were not negotiating to reach any agreement but were only pretending to actually negotiate in order to attain the freedom for as many terrorists as possible before they would walk away from the table. The other running commentary came mostly from the mouth of Mahmoud Abbas also from the very beginning of the talks demanding that the Israelis also be forced to implement a building freeze despite turning down that choice in favor of the terror prisoners release over any other concessions from Israel. What is of further note is that this time, just as in every previous situation when the United States, the European Union, the United Nations or any other source decided to sponsor another round of peace talks, the only concessions demanded were forced from the Israelis and the Palestinians refused to agree to negotiations unless Israel met certain preconditions. Of real interest is that the Palestinians have never offered or been forced to make a single concession since the initial implementation of the Oslo Accords. The Palestinian Authority have yet to even meet the main demand they agreed to in the original agreement where they had promised to alter their charter by removing the demand to destroy Israel as the state for the Jewish People. To their credit, the Palestinian Authority did agree to appoint a committee to rewrite that section of their charter when the United States sent some monitors to assure that the agreement was fulfilled. They never did form that committee but the American observers left satisfied the demands to change certain parts of their charter would be met. So much for trust but verify. So, where do the current talks sit, one might ask.

 

The release of the one-hundred-four terrorist prisoners was arranged to be accomplished in four stages throughout the negotiations. Israel has released three sets with the last group to be released near the end of March. Each release has spawned great celebrations by the Palestinian Authority giving the released terrorists a heroes greeting. As a bonus for their terrorist acts the released terrorists were granted positions within the Palestinian Authority where those who committed the greater acts of terror receiving sentences over twenty years being rewarded with higher paying positions while all others receive a lesser amount. Some of the reports have put the salaries as high as $4,000 per month, a salary equal to a rank of general in the Palestinian Security Forces. The salaries are in addition to bonuses given to the released terrorists with some receiving as much as $50,000 while one terrorist, Issa Abed Raboo, will be receiving $60,000 as his bonus. Who says terrorism does not pay? These salaries are even higher than the amounts paid to the terrorists’ families and the terrorists while they were held in Israel. The Palestinian Authority is claimed to be paying as much as $46,000,000 in terrorist salaries to those in Israeli prisons this year alone.

 

For the past six weeks barely a day goes by without Mahmoud Abbas, one of the Palestinian negotiators or high level Palestinian Authority spokesperson demanding that the Palestinians walk away from the table as soon as Israel releases the final set of terrorists. Some even demand they end their ruse now and stop negotiations immediately. Such calls are always met with a reassuring and calm Abbas claiming the moderate mantle promising that the Palestinians will stay the course until every Palestinian terrorist has been released. Abbas freely states regularly that he is only waiting for the last group to be released unless the United States can force Israel to agree to release more terrorist prisoners including Marwan Barghouti and also implement a building freeze throughout Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, then he claims he will extend the negotiations for as long as the release of the additional terrorist prisoners are being freed. The Palestinians Authority has released numerous statements for their public to consume claiming that they have made a complete mockery and collapsed the idea of Israel imposing a life sentence for murdering Jews by forcing the terrorist releases. All of this does beg the question as to why would the Israelis release the last set of terrorist prisoners knowing that doing so will only result in the Palestinians walking out of the negotiations and there is no possibility of any gains to be made towards a real peace? The sole reason that might make sense is that should Israel withhold the final release, then the Palestinian Authority could leave the negotiations claiming that Israel refuses to take the necessary steps to reach a peace agreement. But is that reason enough?

 

Well, that is where everything really enters the theater of the absurd. As was hotly argued were comments, more like threats, made by United States Secretary of State Kerry aimed at Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israelis stating, “Failure of the talks will increase Israel’s isolation in the world. The alternative to getting back to the talks is a potential of chaos. I mean, does Israel want a third intifada?” Just this week a European Union delegation urged Israel to release the long term terror prisoners as doing so was essential to continuing the peace process and moving it forward. The head of the European Union delegation Emer Costello was quoted demanding, “We believe that the release of prisoners… is central to the peace process.” He also stated, “I think there is an acceptance on both sides, even with the members of the Knesset that we met (knew the) importance of the prisoner issue.” I would love to have the list of the Ministers of the Knesset with which the European Union met. I have a pretty good idea that almost none were from Likud, Jewish Home or even Tzipi Livni herself as she was quoted from her Facebook page clarifying that, “”In order to advance serious negotiations, we will all need to take decisions and prove we are determined to reach an agreement and real peace. That burden of proof is also on the Palestinians’ shoulders. Accordingly, we will examine the issue of the prisoners, meaning that the key to the cells of the Palestinian prisoners is also to be found in the hands of Abu Mazen (Abbas) and the decisions he will take in the coming days.” So, where does that leave Israel going forward?

 

The Israeli leadership will need to weigh what the repercussions would be if they refused to release the rest of the terror prisoners without an actual agreement signed and completed with the Palestinian Authority. Prime Minister Netanyahu might add to the offer the release of Marwan Barghouti and a number of other highly prized terrorist masters should an actual and lasting peace with Israel recognized in the agreement as the home for the Jewish People and an end to the claims of Palestinian refugees’ “right of return.” The result of such actions is easily predicted. Mahmoud Abbas backed by a chorus of other Palestinian Authority spokespeople and accompaniment by the United Nations, European Union, various European governments’ heads of state, Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama at a minimum all condemning Israel and expressing their full understanding for the implementation of a third intifada of terror and murder against Israel and demanding that all civilized nations place sanction on Israel immediately. Where this becomes completely ridiculous is that even should Israel release the last group of terrorists and the Palestinian Authority walk away from the talks the very next morning, within a week, ten days at most, I can predict what the world’s news reports and the entire gauntlet of above noted leaders will all be declaring; Israel destroyed any possibility for peace in the Middle East as they refused to release the remaining terrorists they have been holding in their prisons and insist on continuing to build more housing for Jews in the occupied territories. It is necessary that the world’s leaders take measures to implement policies that display their dissatisfaction and anger over Israeli reluctance to make the necessary compromises for peace. Mahmoud Abbas offers the best possibility for peace and the time is right that peace could be accomplished if only Israel would take the necessary steps. Abbas will meanwhile be complaining about how he was ready and willing to continue the negotiations if only Israel would be reasonable and meet their obligations for peace.

 

The claim we have heard from President Obama is that everybody knows what the formula is for peace and that is the 1967 Lines (actually the 1949 Armistice Lines) with mutually agreed land swaps (if permitted by the Palestinians) with the Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem (cutting the Israelis and all Jews from accessing the Kotel (Western Wall) and Temple Mount (the holiest place on Earth for Jews) and all of the Old City (the historical capital since King David declared Jerusalem as his capital in the tenth century BCE) and some consideration for the Palestinian refugees. Nobody seems to have any difficulty with this solution and think it reasonable. All one need do is remember back to just after the Six Day War when Israel has routed three Arab Armies which had massed on her border and waged war forcing Israel into a defensive war. The actual start to the war was forced by both Egyptian and Syrian troops massed on Israel’s northern and southern borders and all shipping through the Red Sea blockaded by Egypt which was casus belli thus the actual start to the state of war. Within hours of hostilities starting between Syria and Egypt against Israel and upon hearing the Egyptian and Syrian reports of their great and glorious ongoing victory and ignoring pleadings from Israel not to believe the lies, Jordan chose not to believe the Israelis and joined in what they expected would be the destruction of Israel. History recorded a nearly unimaginable victory with Israel routing the Egyptian armies, pushing back the Syrian armies and defeating the Jordanian army. Israel, when hostilities stopped at the insistence of the United Nations, Russia, United States, much of Europe and numerous Arab nations (funny how whenever Israel’s enemies are gaining on the field of battle there is silence but if Israel has the advantage the world screams STOP!) Israel held the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula, Judea, Samaria, and all of Jerusalem (the West Bank). The agreement hammered out was United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 (S/RES/ 242) passed on November 22, 1967 was very carefully crafted with great pains to use exact wording such that Israel was to return some, but not necessarily all or even near to all) the gained territories from her defensive war that had been imposed upon Israel. Technically, under International Law, since Israel was the victim of three aggressor nations, Israel did have the right to keep every inch of the lands she had gained. Of course, as has been proven repeatedly, when it comes to Israel the laws, international and otherwise, seem to never quite apply as they would with any other nation. Still, Israel was required to return parts of the land and retain those lands Israel determined were required to provide for safe and secure borders. Most of the world at that time presumed that Israel would likely return most of the Sinai Peninsula and retain the Golan Heights, Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem and Gaza. So, what exactly was that solution that everybody knows is the necessary result of the negotiation between the Palestinians and Israel? When the United Nations passed their resolution there was no mention or even the inkling of an idea of a Palestinian people, let alone a nation of Palestine, there was Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Sure, there was the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was formed in 1964, three full years before there was any “occupied lands”; I prefer, like many, to call them disputed lands. What was the purpose of the PLO? Their charter called for the eradication of Israel and the liberation of all the lands from the Jordanian border to the Mediterranean Sea, and that Jordanian border included half of Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria (West Bank). The PLO, and thus the so-called Palestinians, made absolutely no claims on Judea, Samaria or East Jerusalem and had stated that once they had liberated all of Israel they planned on joining it to Jordan, the actual and original Palestinian State. My how the world has twisted and contorted everything in the years since November 22, 1967. Those were simpler times when people spoke of such things as right and wrong and sometimes I wonder, when did everything run off the rails and become so twisted and the values we held disappear without even a trace of what we once held so dearly.

Livni Insists Israel Must Sacrifice for Peace or Cease as Jewish State

Tzipi Livni, Israeli Justice Minister, claims as part of a recent statement that “there is a price that whoever really wants peace must pay.” What is behind Ms. Livni’s claims are those who hold to a particular demographic statistical prediction which claims that should Israel retain all of Judea, Samaria and the rest of the disputed territories then within the ensuing decade or two the numbers of Muslim Arabs will outnumber the numbers of Jews and result in the end of Israel as the Jewish State. We could call this the demographic explosion of the Jewishness of Israel. There are many who disagree with Ms. Livni’s position and have also quoted demographic statistics that claim exactly the opposite and these demographers lean heavily on the comparative increasing reproductive rates of Israeli Jews compared to declining rates among the Muslim population. But is there something that both sides have not stressed sufficiently which actually makes the entire argument mute? Well, we believe so and will present it here.

 

Currently the numbers of Jews as citizens of Israel are a little more than six-million and are growing at a respectable rate and a rate well above replacement level and the rates of the rest of the nation’s native populations in the Western world. When dealing with the rates of growth of the Jewish population of Israel are not going to be as dependent on reproductive rates as it will be affected by Diaspora Jews making Aliyah. The next group of nations from which the next wave of Diaspora Jews returning to Israel will come from Europe with France sending the majority of these Jewish immigrants home into Israel. The current Jewish population in the countries in the European Union number slightly over one-million with almost half of these residing currently in France. As has been mentioned heavily in recent news coverage the French Jews along with the Jews in Sweden are both emigrating at a significant rate, almost as if panic was ever-present threatening their feeling of security due to the striking rise in anti-Semitism. The rest of Europe will not belong behind with the rise of anti-Semitism being very evident across Europe. As far as the numbers of Jews who will leave Europe and head to Israel will be significant, there will be a secondary significant number who will instead move to the United States. Add these European Jews to the United States Jewish population and that would push the number to a little over six-million souls. Why this is significant is that there is the beginning of similar rising of anti-Semitism in the United States which is similar to the start of the trends in Europe, just trailing Europe by less than a decade. When it finally becomes evident and beyond the point of credible disbelief that the society has turned in the United States, the Jews there will have only one place on the Earth which will appear welcoming, Israel. This will result in the cast majority of the Jews who leave on their own volition landing in Israel. Such an influx will result in almost doubling the number of Jews in Israel. This will make a definitive difference in the population figures not only in the near term but also into the future.

 

But there is another problem with Minister Livni’s insistence that Israel must sacrifice and surrender lands in order to form a Palestinian state. Her main point is that Israel must do whatever it takes in order to satisfy the Palestinian Authority leadership such that they will sign onto a treaty that ends their claims and brings peace and supposedly security while also removing the demographic threat. The miscalculation is that in order to meet the conditions which Mahmoud Abbas, the person Minister Livni claims is our partner for peace, Israel would need to agree to the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees. Abbas does not allow for Israel receiving a token number to represent the Right of Return, he insists on a total and complete Right of Return for five million Arab refugees. This would inundate Israel with Muslims which would bury the Jewish majority under the influx. What makes surrendering to the demands of Mahmoud Abbas and company is that they have promised that even a complete Israeli surrender the Palestinians will continue their resistance to the occupation of all of Palestine until the occupiers have been completely driven from their lands. The surrender would not buy peace, would not buy security but would buy giving the Palestinians the highlands overlooking the heart of Israel from which to launch rockets on Tel Aviv and the vast majority of Israeli infrastructure, transportation assets, businesses, manufacturing, power generation and population. And even if Minister Livni were to manage to get Mahmoud Abbas to accept a token acceptance only one million refugees returning into Israel, there are still problems any peace would result in producing.

 

So, if Livni, Netanyahu, Abbas and Erekat all signed the next treaty on the White House East Lawn with a gloating Secretary Kerry and President Obama beaming and strutting proudly before the cameras taking credit for solving the insolvable, would that really matter? Even if such a peace excluded any Right of Return into Israel for the Palestinian refugees and their descendants and relegated their return to the newly formed nation of Palestine consisting of Judea, Samaria and Gaza with the Old City and Temple Mount of Jerusalem becoming an international city under the auspices of the United Nations, that would still be the beginning of the end. Within months of such a singing, the Palestinians would bring the refugees into the new West Bank nation of Palestine in order to assure their state posed a proper and populated threat to the continued existence of Israel. After the entire populations of Palestinians were safely residing in Palestine, then the third intifada would begin in earnest. Rockets would rain down on central Israel with destructive results. These rockets would not be aimed generally at an unpopulated area as were the rockets fired by Hamas out of Gaza. These rockets would be fired at the most densely populated areas which also contain the majority of all commerce and power distribution for all of Israel. With the entire population of refugees incorporated into the West Bank, Israel would no longer have any option to retake the West Bank to end the assault as doing so would result in the Palestinian Arabs simply changing to a new tactic where they would simply protest that they must be granted Israeli citizenship instead of demanding their own state. That would produce the same results as allowing for the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees. Once the Palestinians have found a means by which the entirety of the refugees have been allowed to return to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, whether it is into Israel within the Green Line or simply into the newly established Palestinian state, then the demographic threat stands heavy over the continuation of Israel as the Jewish state. It is obvious the refugees cannot be permitted within Israeli borders but even if they return to a Palestinian state they become a standing threat making retaking the Palestinian areas into a death sentence therefore allowing for the continuous hammering of central Israel from the Judean Heights including the use of antiaircraft munitions to make Ben Gurion Airport unusable for the future. Does anybody truly believe that the world of nations would ever care about the Palestinians constantly pounding Israel day in and day out as doing so would be to admit to their errors of judgment in forcing Israel into such an untenable situation. But then there are those nations among the family of nations who would gloat that this had befallen Israel and be proud of their accomplishment in possibly destroying the Jewish state by other means. The choices appear dire but the best last hope to have Israel continue to be the Jewish state is to take the one state solution and grant the Palestinians citizenship starting after there have been six months or one year without a terrorist attack with a stipulation that anybody caught committing a terrorist crime will lose their citizenship and be deported. Take that step and pray, prayer will be required and necessary regardless of the path chosen, but the one state solution may be the least worst path all things considered.
