Time for Israel to Be for Israel

 

The time has more than come for Israel to be for Israel and simply do that which will best serve Israelis and the nation of Israel. We know full well what the Arabs will not rest until they have attained, and that is the destruction of Israel and either the subjugation and oppression of the Jews of Israel or possibly a second Shoah, a second Holocaust. We further understand that should Israel fail that it would likely be the death knell tolling for Judaism worldwide. There is no solution to the Arab problem that will result in an end to their terrorism and constant assaults on our people. We have witnessed this from their actions. We have witnessed it by reading the material they use to educate their children to continue the war without end. We have witnessed it through their claims on all of our holy sites which in fact predate Islam but they attempt to claim them as Islamic sites. We have witnessed the willingness of the United Nations to coddle and accept that the eventuality they must support is the subjugation or elimination of the Jewish People and of our national homeland of Eretz Yisroel, of Israel for those demanding the vernacular reference. There being no compromise which would satisfy the Arabs, the only satisfactory result then is to comply with their wish that all the rest of what remains of our recognized and rightful claims to our legal and defined by treaty and reinforced by our Biblical defined lands be kept as a single nation; we simply need to take complete control over these lands.

The first and biggest challenge to the formal implementation of claiming that which is defined by the San Remo Conference and all ensuing guarantees and final determinations accepted by the world through the League of Nations and by that through the United Nations, we will be tasked and challenged to come up with a satisfactory plan for the Arabs who claim to be an independent nation of Palestine. The offer we should allow is the gifting of the areas defined as their lands under both political and presumably all other manners as indisputably their lands; Area A and the attached areas from Area B should be proportioned as a semi-autonomous region which will remain as the Palestinian territory under semi-autonomous self-rule and defended against any infiltration or act of war against their semi-autonomous lands by the IDF. These lands are theirs for as long as they take no action against Israel or allow for terror strikes to be coming from their semi-autonomous region; otherwise, they will have forsaken their claim to live peaceably with the people of Israel and at such time that our living together has been proven by acts of terror to be impossible, then impossible it is.

 

Once this has become the proof, then Israel will do that which Israel must do and we will terminate the state of allowing any semi-autonomous regions within our lands and reestablish our rightful claims to the lands of Judea and Samaria and the Arabs who claim “Palestinian Identity” will be given an offer of accepting a fair price for their lands and a generous additional stipulation as a resettlement award and free airfare for them and the shipping by most expedient manner of their personal possessions and they will have forfeit any claims to a connection of the lands within the nation of Israel. Should the Arabs desire to remain and live within the nation of Israel, we will welcome them much the same as any nation would accept a number of people living within their borders and are dead set to destroy your nation would do, expel those who refuse to live peaceably despite it being a monstrous act. And as far as it being an inhospitable solution, by doing so we are making the land safe for everyone else. That is the sole acceptable behavior as the representatives of those blessed to reestablishment of the nation of Israel. We would likely, as a nation and responsible People, grant the Arabs some manner of acceptance and admittance to the nation of Israel.

 

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

Needless to point out that we would not be accepting them as an enemy within our borders dead set on the destruction of our nation, but we could be accepting of granting them a home. We would instead accept them as Israeli citizens with all the rights as Israeli citizens once they have completed the required courses in our People’s history and the righteousness of our claims to these lands. Upon completing such an education and proving their having understood and accepted our ownership of the lands of Israel, they will be rewarded a trial citizenship status which will permit their voting in regional elections for the towns designated as regions permitted them within Israel. They would be informed that any act against the nation and the peoples of Israel could and very likely would result in their entire family being deported. We must make it understood that we as the proper and legal nation in these lands have taken control of our entire lands and they have forfeit any claims for self-rule. Should they refuse such an offer we would have little choice but to grant them one last opportunity to live within the lands of Israel as an alien national residing within our borders. As such, these alien nationals residing within our borders would have legal restrictions under which the one thing we could and would not be capable of countenance and that would be any acts against the State of Israel or her peoples. Any acts of terror would result in the deporting of the offending individual and a legally defined settlement offered their immediate family if they desire joining their family member and be expelled with their family member. Any such choices would be considered final and any deported person would be dealt with by imprisonment for the sentence announced and having been deported merely as an alternative to prison thus any return would result in their imprisonment.

 

Those who had passed their citizenship course and been accepted for a trial citizenship would have a defined manner through which to attain full citizenship. The first requirement would be the swearing of allegiance and faithful service to the nation of Israel and the denouncing of any other allegiance. Then they would need to serve a period where they would have local vote and would be granted regional vote and within a decade be granted full citizenship provided they and no member of their family had committed any actions against the nation or its laws during the decade of trial and stepped implementation aiming for the incorporation of full rights as a citizen of Israel. Israel would make every attempt to accept as many Arabs as desired to live within Israel and under her rule of law and meet the criteria set forth at the time of reincorporation as full citizens of the nation of Israel.

 

Israel would need take over the education of all Arab children teaching them about the lands and the history of these lands during the times under Jewish rule up until the final Roman dispersion and the end of our direct control of the Jewish homelands and resulted in our becoming strangers in lands controlled by an alien people who would enforce an alien culture upon the People of Israel residing within their borders. This exile was the reason we were instructed to adapt and obey the rule of law of the lands within which our exiled Peoples found themselves. This gives us a special understanding of being a people within lands where you are not understood or completely accepted. We understand people’s desires when residing in a foreign land with a foreign culture and would try our best to grant accommodation and respect of the cultures of these people just as we desired when we were the strangers and because we are told to treat the stranger amongst us as if they were full citizens as we were strangers in the land of Egypt. This would not mean that Israel would suffer from granting peoples residing within our borders freedom to attempt to destroy our nation and would apply our laws to all within our borders.

Those who were involved in the Arab terror attacks and ruling and commanders over these terrorist activities would be expelled along with their families. Such would be final unless these people were able to convince the citizenship board by reasonable actions and assurances as to why their remaining would serve Israeli purposes. Their claim to be the rightful people to rule the Arabs within Israel would definitely not be an acceptable reason as their previous role as leaders were rogue terror units or the government which turned a blind eye to these acts against the People of Israel. As for those serving sentences in Israeli prisons, they will be expected to complete their sentence and then they would be evaluated in much the same standards as were the other Arabs before them during the annexation and liberation of the remaining lands. Those serving life sentences would be made an offer of serving twenty years followed by expulsion or remain in prison for the remainder of their lives. Such an offer is more than fair and likely never before permitted by any nation; but then Israel set new boundaries for such tolerance from the very first hours of her existence when every Arab residing within Israeli borders were to be granted to be treated as a full citizen within the nascent State of Israel, those accepting that offer and their children and their children’s children for all times are now Israeli citizens with the full rights which come with citizenship. The Druze, Bedouin, those practicing Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and the Bahá’í Faith who were residing within Israel are today amongst her citizens. There are no restrictions by ethnicity or religion within Israel permitting that the individual is a law abiding person willing to accept citizenship in Israel placing such above any others and accept the sovereignty of the State of Israel.

Will there be a backlash from amongst the other nations of the world? You bet there will be and prepare for it to be loud and ferocious in as far as verbal noise will go. There will likely be very few challenging the move legally as the nations all realize the legality backed by agreements and treaty. There is a distinct probability that some nations in and around our neighborhood who might threaten a violent action; but that too will prove to be simply louder noise. Then there will be the filing of complaints against Israel in the International Courts which will bear a distinct resemblance to others which have been refused previously. If they suddenly become acceptable then we will produce the necessary records, deliberations, treaties, agreements, conferences and even the United Nations Charter, so let them file away. Should the General Assembly demand that Israel make her case and explain these actions we have stood before General Assembly sanction before and survived. Should the Security Council even murmur about our legal acts and decide they desire sanction against Israel then so be it, but they should prepare to be without all that Israel invented and produces, then so be it. Should the Security Council even hint at revoking Israeli membership at the United Nations, then so be it. The United Nations has served its purpose and the dye has been cast and we who are the people of Israel can and will accept whatever decision made by the United Nations. Should there be any murmurings calling into doubt the legality of Israel, we will grant them all the importance they deserve all but ignoring them. Instead Israeli leadership should join the protest in favor of redrawing the set-up of the Security Council. We should demand Israeli inclusion as the sole representative of a nation without a region and promise to be the voice of the smallest island nations of the Pacific as many have been kind with us. Additionally, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Australia, Azerbaijan and the Czech Republic should be added as permanent members to the Security Council for good measure. Further, the laws covering vetoes must be changed such that four of the permanent nations must cast a veto for any measure to be automatically vetoed by the Security Council, all because such alterations have been a bone of contention for some time. Any way the world would desire to slice things, Israel need to simply ignore there inanities and have a healthy laugh at their desperate antics. This is especially if Israel were forced to take any overt measures to establish her rightful borders and place amongst the nations. Israel, with a three thousand year history before most of these nations even had been populated by civilizations need not suffer the chaotic prattles and unbearable cacophonous objections as we finalize that which should have been restored long ago. Israel, of course, will show mercy and not demand an apology for the two millennial delay of our recognition and will simply allow it to pass as a necessity demanded by Hashem in all His wisdom.

Why Are So Many Democrats So Frightened?

 

Why is it that so many Democrats are so afraid to stand their ground against the President when it is obvious that the American people themselves have the will to stand? Members of the House and Senate are supposed to serve the Constitution, the people and that which is best for the United States pretty much in that order. The Congress have to be aware that this is an actual treaty no matter what the semantic games being played by the White House and that the simple rejection by the Senate not ratifying the nuclear treaty with Iran should have put an end to this entire fiasco but instead the members of Congress have lost their spines. Why is it that in what has been termed the most serious and powerful deliberative body in history, the United States Senate, a deliberative body held in esteem for over two centuries, has completely gone astray and are voting “Present” instead of standing up like men and declaring their independent thoughts on this horrific treaty and White House power play. Is this the final legacy the United States Congress wishes to present to all of human history? Is this the manner in which you desire to represent yourselves to the people in your districts? Even the members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had the presence not to ratify this in an official ballot, even if they allowed for the pressures from one group to permit a signing of a letter almost as an apology to the White House for refusing to voice their support for a deal they all know in their hearts is bad for the United States and potentially the entire world. Where is the collective pride and intestinal fortitude of Congress?

 

 

Barack Obama Noble Face for Hope & Change with Stern Punishing face for Suckers who Believed in Him

 

 

You allowed a Health Care Act be rammed through without even so much as a floor debate unread and permitted the crashing and burning of the greatest health care system the world had ever seen which had been largely responsible for eradicating diseases from the face of the Earth and replaced it with a hope and a prayer that it does not become a second Veteran’s Hospital System, this time for an entire nation. There have been time and time again that the White House had turned to illegal methods which no lesser President would have been permitted usurpations of power and privileges taken which would have resulted in impeachment at any other juncture. Understandably nobody wishes to have their name on a White House political assassination list, but as sure as you refuse to stand now in the face of such a raw abuse of power, you are setting precedence which will at some point in the future be used by a President to all but ignore the Congress and further weaken the Congress that even their last gasp motion of impeachment of that President for abuses of powers and the trampling of the Constitutional limitations on the White House will simply be torn up and tossed aside as if to drop the gauntlet at the feet of the Congress challenging their authority and even their having any power at all and on that day the Congress will fall just as assuredly as did the Roman Senate before the Caesars. This is the legacy you are bequeathing to the American People and to the annals of history.

 

Future historians will point to these times as when the Imperial Presidency was first proclaimed and the Congress refused to answer the challenges and instead did abrogate their Constitutional rights and powers turning them over to a President who would dare to rewrite portions of that document such that he could do whatever he pleased simply by claiming his actions to be named something the White House claimed gave the President the powers sought and challenged the Congress to act to prevent this absurdity. Now, when facing the greatest of absurdities imaginable where what is a treaty in every aspect and definition has instead become a gentlemen’s agreement between heads of state and as such no business of the Congress to perform their Constitutional responsibilities. This is a disgrace to the Constitution which this President has ignored in more ways than all the President before him combined as he ignored written laws passed by the Congress and signed by previous Presidents, has torn up agreements between the government and other nations despite previous approval of these deals such as the anti-missile systems which were intended as a defensive position against Iranian missile strikes aimed at Europe destroying any trust between the United States and any other nation, especially ally, in the world. This President has made any agreement or treaty between the United States and other nations of the world meaningless as they have run roughshod over agreement after agreement and ignored fulfilling treaty obligations rewriting the entirety of foreign affairs and alliances upon which the order and support structures of two-thirds of the world depended.

 

Should President Barack Hussein Obama be permitted to change the ratification of treaties by inventing a new form of treaty, a Presidential Imperial Overreach Administrative Agreement replacing such simple a concept as a treaty as the new definition for any “treaty” in which the United States had more than one other nation as a signatory, then it no longer requires the ratification procedure and instead of requiring a two-thirds approval by the Senate, it will require a two-thirds vote against it in both Houses of Congress to block its implementation. This is a crucial point in time where the Congress must force the confrontation for the health and future of the United States as a nation under a Constitutional Republic with the rule of law and not the rule of man. Allowing this procedure to circumvent the Congress at this presumably the final check on the abuse of power by a President will have future ramifications potentially more directly and immediate than any might fear in their wildest conspiracies. Perhaps having to face this President on the field of political power is what the Congress fears and they would rather just go along to get along hoping the nation survives the abuses of power and that things may return to a state of normalcy come January of 2017 and the next President takes office. Maybe any damages done by the refusal by Congress and particularly the Senate can be repaired at that time and the Constitution be restored and the Republic salvaged. And should the Congress lie down and allow their powers to be trampled upon by a single President then what will stop some future President from doing the same, perhaps even the President sworn in on that coming morning in January of 2017. What if the next President decides they kind of favor having imperial powers and refuses to play ball and challenges the desires and powers of Congress and instead chooses to continue to erode away one entire branch of the three legged stool the United States was carefully balanced upon. What is to prevent such a President once they have finished neutering the Congress from polluting and then neutering the Judicial Branch and simply making the three legged stool into his or her own pedestal of absolute power? Nothing, that is what will be able to prevent such, nothing.

 

Perhaps this is what has frightened the members of Congress, the challenge of taking a strong stand and enforcing their prerogatives and responsibilities under the Constitution. Be it known to you, the members of Congress, that should you collectively collapse before this challenge where words mean exactly what the President decides they mean when he uses them and that the definition of any world at any time can have the desired meaning assigned by the President then there is no longer law, just individual Presidential unchecked and absolute power. Sure it would take extreme effort at this point after surrendering so much ground to this President to finally say, “No more. Your abuses end here and now; we can take no more of your insult and abuse.” Instead the Congress is deciding, even deliberating acting as if they were a battered spouse and claiming that the abusive spouse, the President, really does respect them and the contract of this particular marriage, the Constitution of the United States of America, and the spousal President is really a good person deep down and if the Congress will just go along they can eventually change him and save him from himself. Anyways, standing up to the President now might entail acting like the adult in the room and applying consequences for such abuses of power would take nerves of steel, or at least nerves backed by parchment, that piece of parchment sitting right down the street on display in a bullet-proof glass viewing port which would take that precious document downstairs and placed into an impenetrable vault which would resist even a direct strike by a nuclear device and still hold that precious document sage even after all the rest of the physical vestiges of power were wiped clean. That document is the United States of America’s heart and soul and is more important than any one person, even a record shattering first for America, even that must not be permitted to act towards destroying the definitions within that precious document. Lose that and it can never be restored, at least not for a viewable future which would be left to our children who have been denied an understanding of the importance and uniqueness of that Constitution. This is the time for restoring the balances defined by the Constitution and to reinstall the educational means by which that document and its importance in the history of man and the hope it provides all mankind into their educations.

 

Next to the Ten Commandments and the Bible, the Constitution of the United States of America along with their Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights are together the definition of the human soul crying for dignity and freedom never before imagined. Just as the Ten Commandments and the concept of the limited power of a monarch, or of a governmental set of institutions, set to rule over a nation must be limited in their ability to gather wealth or absolute power making them a veritable god should be made impossible under any form of governance which will have any opportunity to be fair in its acts. The Old Testament has in place that idea that a sovereign, be that a king or a governance, must be limited and fear the people instead of the people fearing the governance. That is what is at stake in this Iran deal. We realize that by having the Security Council affirm the Iranian nuclear treaty and incorporating it to be enacted under Chapter Seven makes it an applicable law and that cannot be undone by Congress, but we can at least force the President to go through the actual motions and even attempt to enforce the will of the American public and their representatives.

 

We realize that there is really only one way the Iranian nuclear treaty can be undone at this stage, rejection by the Congress and challenge the President should he ignore the Congressional override of his veto. But that does not mean that the United States governance cannot use the actual methods and instituted channels to resist permitting the Iranians a paved highway to nuclear weapons capabilities and the methods and means of delivering such devices anywhere on the face of the earth and the ability of bringing any nation that depends on electrical systems to its knees. The Congress only need pass the legislation which is all but guaranteed at this juncture. This should be acted upon before the deadline as a statement that this is a strong belief and feeling by the Congress and that it was not just some token effort passed right before the deadline when the backs were against the proverbial wall. Let it pass the Senate with merely sixty-one or anything just short of the two-thirds which is required to override a Presidential veto. The same applies in the House of Representatives though it is highly likely that the House will pass the legislation with the necessary two-thirds which places the entire matter hinged on the Senate. Give the President the legislation such that he can answer with a veto before the implied deadline such that the override vote can be taken in each house of Congress. Assuming it has the votes in the House of Representatives, the Senate will be under the microscope. The crux of the matter is that Senators and Representatives are permitted to change their votes and vote anew on the override motion. The Democrats who are voting against the original legislation blocking the Iran Treaty will have passed their duty to vote as instructed by the leader of their party and can now be freed to vote their consciences. This could provide an overwhelming retort to the Presidential overreach by overriding the veto and declaring a line which the Congress had drawn and beyond which the President will have been refused crossing.

 

Then comes the difficult part as it will take immeasurable courage and intestinal fortitude as it is almost guaranteed that President Obama will not only step over that line but will obliterate the line and challenge the Congressional override vote. President Obama might even go so far as to address the nation directly and explain why it has come to the place where the Congress is to be ignored for the good of the country and the world and that the President acting under some form of war powers and the Commander in Chief will proceed ignoring the pesky temper tantrum of the traitors in Congress who question the President’s powers and ability to act where the Congress is too timid to go as somebody has to be the adult, act as the parent over the children, unruly children in the Congress who may have thought they had gotten the last word in this disagreement. Then comes the question of will the Congress perform its duty and rein in this President gone rogue on the Constitution and the Congress. This audacity by the President leads to the one place all his previous actions of overreach and abuses of power have been leading to from day one of his Presidency. All the rewrites and selective enforcement of complete sections of the Affordable Care Act which has proven to be anything but that, his tearing up treaties from previous administrations which had received the necessary support from Congress and the former President, his ignoring or refusing to enforce actual legal acts from previous administrations simply because of the President having a problem with the laws as written and passed, his complete refusal to accept legal limits placed upon the President as a part of his Presidency under Constitutional limitations and requirements and then comes the most grievous of the President ignoring his responsibilities, or perhaps the President had rewritten the President’s responsibilities to suit his political outlook. The President unilaterally killed the completion of the building of the F-22 Raptors claiming the inferior F-35 Joint Strike Fighter would serve the United States just fine. He then moved the United States Naval Fifth Fleet in order to surrender United States influence or ability to enforce or carry out obligations under treaties the fleet’s responsibility for assuring the commercial trade waterways remain open (especially the Straits of Hormuz and the Suez Canal, the Bab-el-Mandeb) and supporting the United States treaty obligations in the heart of the Middle East leaving these essential waterways to the protection and desires of Iran with the Fifth Fleet stationed in the western waters of the Indian Ocean.

 

 

Obama World and he can hold the whole thing like a basketball but just like a basketball he is clueless what to do with it

Obama World and he can hold the whole thing like a basketball but just like a basketball he is clueless what to do with it

 

 

All of these and many more have led to this point and there is one last possibility which the Congress should demand exercising their oversight. It is vitally important to determine whether President Obama has acted in a manner completely counter to the ability of the United States to protect itself by presenting a credible deterrent to a nuclear strike against the United States. Should the President have cut personnel responsible for the upkeep of the United States nuclear arsenal, it is entirely possible that the majority of United States nuclear warheads are currently inoperable or questionable. The majority may be requiring an overhaul if not a complete modernization and upgrade. The forces responsible for this highly important and discreet task-force whose activities being necessarily kept so quiet that their concerns are likely have such a long chain of command that any complaint or warning would have been stonewalled before reaching the White House by arrangement of the White House. These forces have been cut by Presidential and Department of Defense orders making the upkeep in doubt. This would have been a backdoor manner by which the President could have kept his promise to disarm the United States nuclear weapons systems even if he was unable to get the other nuclear powers to also commit to such reductions. The President felt that if the United States disarmed then the rest of the world would follow suit and any nation seeking nuclear weapons would have a change of heart and stop their program. Somehow the Russian and Chinese must not have received the memo as both nations have drastically increased their resources poured into modernizing and restructuring their nuclear weapons systems replacing spent nuclear material and replacing the cores and upgrading their designs and the ICBMs which would deliver these weapons. The upgraded ICBM missile bodies have superior guidance and tracking enabling them to take a constantly seemingly erratic path to their targets to confuse and confound intercepting systems leading to a greater numbers penetrating through to strike said targets. What if the United States no longer possesses a functioning deterrent system which is capable, or potentially, even actually functional. We can trust that the world did not follow President Obama’s plans for a nuclear free world even if he managed to present to the world a nearly nuclear free United States, something repairable.

 

Such malfeasance might be permitted to go unanswered or kept from the public but is such something the nation desires continue? The Congress should finally act responsibly, at long last, and pass legislation and then followed by overriding a Presidential veto, thus forcing the passage of legislation denying United States complying willingly and preventing United States interests from doing business with Iran thus reducing their cash flow. Unfortunately, this is not how President Obama is likely to act. The President is more likely to pursue his preconceived views completely ignoring the Congressional actions. This should lead to at least the holding of impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives where the President will have forced the confrontation of President Obama against the Congress and the Constitution, both of which he has treated with complete contempt and arrogantly demanded that he would act and continue to act in complete breach of trust and unscrupulously. Once the House of Representatives has passed by a simple majority vote the Articles of Impeachment, the Senate is tasked with conducting a trial. Then should the Senate vote to convict by a two thirds majority, or sixty-seven Senators in favor of Impeachment, then Joe Biden will be sworn in as President and potentially running as the incumbent in the November 2016 elections. Below are the complete list of steps for Impeachment as laid out at The History Place – Presidential Impeachments.

 

Modern Impeachment Procedure:


1) Impeachment resolutions made by members of the House of Representatives are turned over to the House Judiciary Committee which decides whether the resolution and its allegations of wrongdoing by the President merits a referral to the full House for a vote on launching a formal impeachment inquiry.


2) The entire House of Representatives votes for or against a formal impeachment inquiry, needing only a simple majority (a single vote) for approval.


3) If approved, the House Judiciary Committee conducts an investigation to determine (similar to a grand jury) if there is enough evidence to warrant articles of impeachment (indictments) against the President. The Committee then drafts articles of impeachment pertaining to specific charges supported by the evidence. The Committee votes on each article of impeachment, deciding whether to refer each article to the full House for a vote.


4) If the House Judiciary Committee refers one or more articles of impeachment, the entire House of Representatives votes on whether the article(s) merit a trial in the Senate, needing only a simple majority for approval.


5) If the full House approves at least one article of impeachment, the President is technically impeached and the matter is referred to the U.S. Senate. The House then appoints members of Congress to act as managers (prosecutors).


6) The trial of the President is held in the Senate with the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court presiding. The President can be represented by anyone he chooses. He may appear personally or leave his defense in the hands of his lawyers.


7) The entire Senate may conduct the trial or it or it may be delegated to a special committee which would report all the evidence to the full Senate.


8) The actual trial is conducted in a courtroom-like proceeding including examination and cross-examination of witnesses. During questioning, Senators remain silent, directing all questions in writing to the Chief Justice.


9) After hearing all of the evidence and closing arguments, the Senate deliberates behind closed doors then votes in open session on whether to convict or acquit the President. The vote to convict must be by a two thirds majority, or 67 Senators. If this occurs, the President is removed from office and is succeeded by the Vice President. The Senate’s verdict is final and there is no right of appeal.

The events will be very interesting, especially the actual trial with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding over the Senate with likely all fifty members attending the entirety of the proceedings along with the majority of Americans as well as the free world. This would be the largest television audience since, or likely exceeding, the televised first man on the moon and the landing on the moon, the first steps and the iconic quote by Neil Armstrong, “One small step for (a) man; one giant leap for all mankind!” The modesty intended was accidentally left out in the actual speaking but such can be expected knowing what kinds of emotions must have been completely overwhelming and that fact he could speak at all is a small miracle. The references to Armstrong’s statement ever since usually include the skipped “a” in his short but poignant and historic statement as there can never be another first man to step onto the moon or step onto a body in space other than the Earth. We will have to be patient for the first person to step on another planet or other space firsts which will hopefully become a vision for the future sooner rather than later.

Neutered IDF Lost Control of Soldier to Leftist Instigated Clash

 

There is a video which shows a confrontation that slowly but steadily escalates which is a certain sign that the entire confrontation was staged and carefully orchestrated to produce a desired end, the isolation of an IDF soldier and the apparent shaming of the soldier by depicting him as defenseless and helpless against any aggressions against the soldier. The entire video is shown below. The length of the video is a full nine minutes with the last four starting at the five minute mark displays the desired end result, a surrounded soldier being beaten by teenage girls and soon backed up by women. The soldier was attempting to subdue a rock thrower who has what may well be a broken arm in a sling which may have contributed to the soldier taking a less strident means for restraining the youth who resists making his being taken more difficult than it already was given the terrain. So, first the video and then more discussion on the probable other factors which many outside, and even inside, of Israeli territories are unaware of but the foreign instigators and Arab rock throwers and others are fully aware and take full advantage due to the dire situation.

 

 

 

 

The first thing which needs to be pointed out is this entire fiasco may have been committed and carefully orchestrated to result in a single IDF soldier attempting to arrest the youth with the cast on his arm. Watching the video carefully from the seven minutes-forty seconds through the seven minutes-fifty seconds introduced into the scene was an individual wearing a blue-grey T-shirt, baseball cap and with a large backpack strapped on his back. He enters the scene and is careful not to become too intrusive and involved in the events but who has taken the moment to challenge further the soldier who has apparently extricated himself. If not for the intervention of the second IDF soldier, this intervention might have engaged the first soldier sufficiently long enough to allow for the mob to reengage thus providing the camera person filming the entire event to get some more ‘choice’ video of the hapless and helpless weak IDF.

The video depicts a soldier unable to cope with women and children, an IDF boy, not a man as he could not even perform his duties when assaulted by women, for even further propaganda and largely shot to shame the soldiers and depict the superiority of the Arabs. This briefly intervening person appears to be a Leftist instigator and coordinator likely from Europe and in the area to gather film such as they were able to shoot today. The video concluded with the name “Bilal Tamimi” emblazoned in red across the closing view. The name Bilal Tamimi appears to be connected with Palestinian videos largely depicting violent exchanges and edited to give the worst possible depiction of the IDF and the heroic Palestinians. Often the theme is the Palestinians as David against Goliath IDF forces and, at least true to the original story, David proves victorious. Unfortunately the reality is the Palestinian Arabs’ efforts have the support and backing of the vast majority of Arabs including the leaders of various Arab and Muslim nations. The Palestinian Arabs are the proxy being used in order to give the impression of the Israeli giant and brutal forces when should they ever succeed in using world pressures to force Israel back to her pre-1967 Six Day War borders, then the full Arab force of as many as five to ten nations will contribute forces, financing and other essentials for the next attempt to drive the Jews into the sea.

 

Analyzing the causality for the events depicted on the video is the long chain of command all the way back to the Israeli Supreme Court. Believe it or not, the Israeli Supreme Court took upon itself the task of reviewing and tweaking, they referred to it as humanizing, we would more refer to it as empowerment of the enemy through the handcuffing and forcing the IDF and other Israeli security forces by allowing deadly force in almost no circumstances and should such force ever be used, the soldier in question would be considered to have acted improperly and will face a command court of inquiry where the soldier will need not only to defend their actions but prove the absolute need for their ‘overt act of undue violence.’ Every time overt force is implemented, especially involving a weapon even if only as a threat, the offending soldier and potentially their commander will at the very least be forced to take additional training. This additional training does not give the soldier or their commander any new techniques or methods of engagement. No, this additional training is given by lawyers from the IDF who review the reasons against ever harming an Arab Palestinian or Western leftists who orchestrate and direct these confrontations as it is more important to deny these instigators with an act of violence than it is to avoid giving the effect of an emasculated IDF incapable of handling any opposition. The Rules of Engagement (ROE) are far more stringent than those placed on the troops of the United States, Britain or any of the other nations assisting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and those ROEs were excessively stifling as it was. Our brief article from December 19, 2006, titled ROE, the Real Problem in Iraq gives an accounting of the ROE for United States and most allied forces in Iraq. It was the ROE which spelled the end of the career of Lt Colonel Allen West which we reported about in the second half beneath the video of ret. Lt. Colonel Allen West speaking on the issues of the day as he views them. The article written on July 31, 2015 was titled How to React When Your Societal World is Threatened. These references should grant a clearer insight into the problems which a poorly constructed and stifling set of ROE can and does place a soldier.

 

The additional problem with the ROE lies in the IDF, particularly those at the front lines where the dangers they face are real threats to health, body, limb and life, having their ROE inspected by non-military and non-combat panels. Requiring that the ROE have the approval of lawyers would be bad enough if those lawyers were also at least soldiers or possibly a panel of politicians comprised of Members of the Knesset, or the Prime Minister’s Cabinet, but definitely not the justices of the Supreme Court of Israel. The Israeli Supreme Court in question is largely leftist in their political views; reside in safe neighborhoods far from the realities in Judea and Samaria; and lastly we can be assured that no more than two or at most three ever served or were trained to fight in the front lines, particularly as these lines are today. One piece of information that may not have imparted the hard impact upon the judges is the potential for loss of life when soldiers suffer hard impact from stones thrown very often with accuracy and ill intent using slings or the size of the rocks which often are as large or larger than cinderblocks and boulders and the full threat such hold. Rock throwers are a very real threat to life and limb of the IDF soldiers yet they are not permitted to protect themselves from such attacks with lethal power themselves. They are pretty much left to depend on teargas grenades and other non-lethal and nearly completely ineffective methods. As was depicted in this video, the grenades are often retrieved by the sling throwers and launched right back at the IDF positions with great efficiency. The ineffective ROE has also been evidenced by recent reports where soldiers refused to take steps to terminate rock-throwers who were targeting passing vehicles as should they engage these rock-throwing terrorists they could very well find themselves set upon and in threat of breaking their ROE defending themselves. It is apparently wiser not to engage and appear impotent than to actually take steps to enforce the law and protect the citizens from potentially bodily harm on top of a damaged vehicle.

 

The first item which needs to be addressed would have to be what kind of support, if any, will the current government provide perhaps by simply holding a meeting between the Defense Minister, Prime Minister and a selection of others from varying sides on the issue and actually review the ROE and make changes where there are needs to do so. IDF commanders need to update their thinking as they are still using the ROE and definitions of threat which applied very nicely and politely to suicide murderers and catching them before they could effectively self-detonate. The IDF soldiers are no longer fighting that form of war and are now often attacked simply because unless the Arabs fire actual bullets or have already stabbed and potentially murdered an Israeli or a soldier can they use lethal force, and even then they are advised that hand-to-hand combat engagement is preferred. It is really easy to prefer the most dangerous and potentially life threatening manner of disarming a knife wielding Arab Palestinian than to shoot them in their legs and thus making their detention safer for the IDF personnel. This is not possible as the ROE are not written with the IDF soldier in mind but rather the protection from harm the ignoble Arab Palestinian which the Supreme Court appears to presser using their powers to rescue than they do IDF soldiers. That situation needs to be adjusted so that a soldier knows that his commanders all the way up to the Director General, Major General Dan Harel, Deputy Defense Minister, Eli Ben-Dahan (Jewish Home), Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon (Likud), and finally Prime Minister, Benyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu are supportive of their professionalism and judgement. They trust that your use of deadly force is solely in those situations where absolutely necessary; instead of precisely the point at which your life is in imminent mortal danger, which proves too late more often than not.

Israeli leadership have a wonderful, if not exactly preferable, set of values by which they attempt to make Israel the most civilized and righteous nation in all things and especially all appearances no matter how contrived to do the opposite by European and American leftists deployed to Israel with implicit instructions and trained in techniques for directing events in order to provide the most embarrassing or unprovoked physical threat or action which can be edited from the filming of a confrontation. One can usually bet that there are Western Leftists behind any confrontation being expertly filmed and often edited. This wonderful goal runs afoul of the practical but dangerous situations which soldiers often find themselves. The IDF is so stifled and literally forbidden from using force, not just lethal force but any force. They are required to passively hold their ground when under attack by rock-throwing Arabs. If these assaults happen to those writing the ROE, they would immediately rewrite the ROE to make whatever actions they decided on at the moment of threat as necessary, starting with the use of weapons many Knesset Ministers carry on their selves. Such a ROE would be quite enlightening, would it not?

 

The facts are that the current ROE lessens any readily available reason for an escalation. Nobody should desire events to return to the stone-throwing being backed by rifle carrying men ready to answer violence with violence. All too often the launching of teargas grenades would obstruct vision and the sound of a rifle-shot echoed a moment before everything went past crazy and into lethal insanity. Sometimes it was a perceived threat, a potential detected which would be utilized, a finger raised or placed near to the trigger, then bullets would be exchanged often for a mere ten seconds, ten seconds which took a week to pass in the combatant’s mind. The result was inevitable, the youth stuck between the two combatants shooting at ghostly wisps of the other side, targeting anything which moved. This resulted in the wounding or deaths of the rock-throwing teens and younger who were caught in the middle of a gunfight. The contributing factor would be the age of the average rock-throwing youth as many are merely teenagers under nineteen and many likely in their preteen years. On the other side, the age of the recruit in the IDF is eighteen and nineteen which are recent graduates from High School. There exists a sole redeeming quality of the current ROE, it prevents escalations. Still, the ROE needs to be altered if only to trust more completely those we train and then hand them a weapon and tell them to almost never fire the weapon no matter the provocation. There actually is a deterrent force which is the paperwork which becomes necessary to describe in detail any shooting so a board can review the situation as perceived by the people present. The most common explanation given despite each bearing its own specifics would still be sufficient for reference for review. In a normal world, or should we claim a more perfect world, these children would still be hanging out together but would instead of playing this potentially deadly game would be playing soccer or hiking and what-not. It is a crime that they end up at each other’s throats. That is the saddest of realities as is each death on both sides. That is the sole damning quality of the current ROE. Still, the ROE needs to be altered if only to trust more completely those we train and, not as is the current policy, handing them a weapon and tell them to almost never fire the weapon no matter the provocation.
