Troubles Begin in Thinking Islam Must be Repaired by Islam

 

There is a theme that in order for Islam to find some means of coming to grips with modernity and make the changes necessary for it to coexist with the non-Islamic world instead of seeking to destroy all which is not Islam must be managed by those within Islam and not the remainder of the world. This is a great concept for those of us who are not Muslims as it frees us from any obligation to work to assist Islam in finding a new path. It allows those who are not Muslims to simply wipe their hands of the problematic situation and leave all the heavy lifting for those within the sway of Islam. Imagine if we had decided that the problem caused by the Nazis had to be solved by those who were part of the Nazi party et al. Where would such an idea, if followed by France, Britain, Canada and the United States have led? Well, it would probably not have been very pretty. There were those within the United States who thought that the entire Nazi war was a European problem and that it should be left to the Europeans to hash it out. Their logic was quite appealing as the United States just finished fighting a European War called, you will love this one, The War to End All Wars. These Americans, and many others who were on the fence or just tired of European catastrophic endeavors and waring for supremacy over one another, simply desired to be left at peace and unbothered with the world even if it was heading for Armageddon and going to Hades in a Handbasket. They were winning the popularist debate and had most Americans believing the European War was no business of the United States, as it would never come to American shores, it was not their problem. Well, the attack on Pearl Harbor blew all that thinking right out of the water and propelled America into the war. Those who claim that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many in his Administration and the Congress and other leaders of business and society knew the attack was coming and did nothing to prevent it are missing the point. Had these leaders of the United States, both governmental and private, known about the coming attack, what were they supposed to do? Plead with Japan not to strike Pearl Harbor? The Japanese had already decided; so that was not going to work, as they would not alter their plans. Call for a draft before the attack and try to get some workable defense in place all but instantly? That would never have flown in Congress and even had they drafted the entire population, there would not have been sufficient pilots or aircraft to stop the attack. Once the Japanese decided to strike, the war was coming to America and there was nothing that could prevent that; so any venturing into excuses and what ifs is a waste.

 

There is a message in the run-up to America entering World War II, namely that some things are inescapable and the sooner this is realized, the sooner the problem can be addressed, solved, or, if necessary, eliminated and all at far less cost in treasure and manpower. Imagine if Britain had listened to Winston Churchill’s warnings when he was telling them of the coming conflagration and the inevitability of war with the Nazis. Imagine if instead of sending Neville Chamberlain to the Munich conference the British had sent Winston Churchill. The conference would not have reached any agreement, Czechoslovakia would not have been gifted to the Nazis, and just maybe Germany would have been stopped as France and Britain kept their mutual defense pact with the Czechoslovakian friends instead of simply whimpering as the Nazis were gifted half and rolled over the remaining half soon thereafter without any response from Czechoslovakia’s so-called allies. Hitler would have been stopped cold as soon as he had entered Czechoslovakia instead of months later after building his war machine using the existing arms factories he conquered as part of taking Czechoslovakia. Instead the war came after the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact in which the Nazis and Soviet Union divided up Poland between them and rolled across their respective borders crushing the Polish cavalry and military meeting in the middle and that was the end of Poland with their prisoners taken to their respective conquers’ camps and many were simply executed as the Nazis and Soviets both viewed the Polish people as inferior and unworthy of consuming oxygen. This led to the most devastating war in which an unbelievable number of the resultant casualties were civilians far exceeding the totals and percentages of previous wars (see comparison between World War I and II below). It is startling that many historians look at World War II and realize that much of the death and destruction could have been avoided and the leaders of nations who could have intervened early and, by taking the bull by the horns, have stopped Hitler cold preventing his attempt at world conquest and the eradication of the Jewish People. What if the world is approaching another of those critical points where unfolding history is about to hit a divergence and the next couple of years, maybe months or even weeks, could decide the entire future of humanity? We could not be more serious.

Manchester, Paris, Brussels, San Bernardino, Orlando, Nice, and decades of terrorist activities in Israel plus any others anybody cares to fill in are but the latest wave of Islamist attempts to conquer the world in the name of Allah in order to fulfill the prophesy from the Quran, the part written in Medina to be exact (for more on the bifurcated Quran, please read our short article as an introduction Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? which has included numerous helpful links in the comment section added by our readers). The initial Islamic attempt in world conquest began in the year 622 under Muhammad for the first decade and then Rashidun and then the Umayyad caliphs covering the first wave of Islamic expansion (see map below). This has been followed by other waves with near continuous aggressions of varying degrees. Some of the history might be of interest to many Westerners.

 

Islamic Expansion

If one were to ask most Americans when was the first terrorist attack on the United States in the modern era, meaning the past one hundred years, what would be your guess. Most people would likely claim it was the attack on the World Trade Center which then requires asking which attack. Too many would then answer the one on 9/11, of course. That is the state of history knowledge for far too many Americans. The truth is there was one before the 9/11/2001 hijacking of four American airliners crashing two, one each, into the World Trade Towers; one into the Pentagon and the last one was crashed by the passengers into a field not far outside of Pittsburgh upon learning of the intentions of the hijackers. There was a first attack on the Towers on February 26, 1993, when Ramzi Yousef and Eyad Ismoil drove a truck filled with 1,336 pounds of explosives into the parking garage under Tower One with coconspirators Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal A. Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin, and Ahmed Ajaj all led by the Blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. But even that is not the initial attack since the start of the Twentieth Century as for that we need go back to June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, at 12:15 AM when Sirhan Sirhan Assassinated Democrat Party frontrunner candidate for President of the United States Robert F. Kennedy. The public was told that Sirhan was insane and simply was out of control, crazy, demented or anything other than terrorism by a Palestinian sympathizer born in Lebanon who identified with Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian cause and murdered Robert Kennedy because he supported Israel. Yes, the truth will set you free and the assassination of Robert Kennedy was an act of terrorism aimed at Israel and the United States by an Arab Palestinian supporting terrorist.

 

But when it comes to conflicts with Islam and the United States there is an even earlier precedent. The United States fought two wars with Islamic forces known as the Barbary Pirates who were stealing ships through piracy demanding tribute from the owning nations and taking the crews as slaves. The major slave trade in the Mediterranean was called white slavery to differentiate it from the rest of slavery in the African continent where the Arabs and Muslims played a critical role in acquisition of the African natives which were then transferred to the coast where they were bought by European slavers and then sold to ship captains who would transfer them for trading across the world. The Barbary pirates collected tributes from every nation and got more and more greedy and at some point, the United States came to the decision they were not going to be blackmailed any more. Under President Thomas Jefferson, probably the greatest of all isolationists of the Founding Fathers, the United States Navy and Marines fought the Pasha of Tripoli Yusuf Karamanli after refusing to pay the demanded tribute of $225,000, which led to his declaring war on the United States. You could say that President Thomas Jefferson obliged him.

 

But wait, there’s more. After the United States had somehow managed to win the war of 1812 against Britain, the Barbary Pirates thought that the United States would be vulnerable and began their piracy again, demanding ransoms. The Regency of Algiers Mohamed Kharnadji who was followed by Dey Regency of Algiers Omar Agha insisted the United States resume paying tribute this time to Algiers as their ships now ruled the seas. President James Madison showed the same resolve as had Thomas Jefferson and again the Barbary Pirates were defeated. What is of interest, the Barbary Pirates never signed an actual surrender but instead insisted that any surrender was but a Hudna. Traditionally, a Hudna lasts a decade or until the forces of Islam believe they are capable of defeating their enemies. The Barbary Hudna lasted significantly longer than a decade but it appears that it is coming to its end and they believe that the United States is primed to fall right along with Europe, Israel, India and the remainder of the world is all ready for harvest and they are out to pick it clean.

 

Why, you might inquire, are they so dependent on using terrorism as a way to defeat the world? Well, the world has only themselves to blame for making it appear that terrorism is the route they can ride to total victory. They watched how through terrorism and a campaign of lies and propaganda they believe they are on the verge of destroying Israel and how the Europeans have all but folded before them with terrorism and infiltration leading the way. It is simply appearing to be working and so they will ride it for all it is worth. As long as the world remains in a coma ready to surrender over enduring any struggle, then Islam will continue to surge. The continued reaction to every terror attack by the European elite is to blame Israel and the growing anti-Semitism spreading across Europe, even ahead of and in excess to the numbers of Muslim refugees joining the already present Muslim populations. The excuse that the anti-Semitism is driven by Muslims sounds hollow when percentages of those holding numerous anti-Semitic tropes far exceeds the percentage of Muslims residing in most European nations with amongst the most threatening being Sweden, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. What has been amongst the most disturbing trends are the numbers of people in the developed world who blame Israel and Jews for the terrorism when it strikes their country. There are many who claim if only Israel would give the Palestinians and the Arabs what they demand, then their own nation would be fine and the terrorism would stop. Making this even more distressing is that many of these people know that what the Arabs and the Palestinians demand is all of Israel and the Jews within murdered to the last man, woman and child and they have little problem with such a sacrifice if it would keep them quiet for a few decades, enough to last for their lives as they care not about the future, just about the now and their future. Beyond their lives, they could not care less. The willingness to sacrifice Israel is made all the more evident when votes are taken in various United Nations agencies and in the General Assembly where European nations consistently abstain rather than support Israel against false claims and demands to wrench lands from Israel through votes most recently in UNESCO. The developed world can decide to end this awakening of Islam now or pay a horrific price once the majority of Muslim nations have developed nuclear weapons programs with each maintaining and equipping ICBM’s with twenty, fifty, hundred, three hundred, a thousand or more warheads. At what point will Europe and the United States awaken to the reality that Islam is incapable of taming Islam. The reason why is basic, the pacifists cannot prevent those intent on war from violence through passivity. Islam does not require every Muslim to Jihad, but every Muslim is required to either pay, house or otherwise support those who do commit to Jihad, or at the very least, lie in order to facilitate and occlude any evidence of Jihad. And the bad new is that Greater Jihad is warfare and violence to expand Islam until Islam is the only religion worshiped on Earth and Lesser Jihad is self-improvement and the juxtaposition of the two is Taqiyya (see below for definition). Lastly, there are those few true lunatics who feel if they cannot rule the entire world, then there should be no world for anybody in which to rule.

Time to Climb the Temple Mount for All People

 

Over the past twenty-five years, working hand-in-hand with the Palestinian Authority, the Jordanian Waqf has taken the open Temple Mount where all people could visit and marvel or even, dare we say, pray quietly and turned it into a combat zone in order to establish an Islamic only zone. The Jordanian Waqf had only to declare that the violence which was incited regularly by the leaders of the Palestinian Authority television and radio broadcasts was caused by the Jews insulting Islam with their actions on the Temple Mount and demand that Israel ban Jews, and later Christians and then later all non-Muslims, from entering onto the Temple Mount. One of the incitement television broadcasts is viewable below where Mahmoud Abbas rouses the rioting youth ranging in age from twelve to forty to rush the Temple Mount and attack any Jews or others who are not Muslim and throw stones, Molotov cocktails and attack with steel rods and knives by simply announcing, “We bless you, we bless the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic), we bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahids) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa (Mosque) is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” There were also numerous others of a similar content, which would allow for a mix to be broadcast. These particular broadcasts were used sometimes for weeks at a time with it being broadcast as much as four or five times an hour.

 

 

Using this technique the Palestinian Authority in coordination with the Jordanian Waqf reestablished new so-called status-quo after status-quo, each one further restricting the ability for Jews and other non-Muslims from being permitted to visit the Temple Mount. Today a Jew is only permitted to enter the Temple Mount through a single minor and small gate accessed by crossing a temporary and barely stable bridge, which the Jordanian Waqf refuses to permit repair, where they are checked and rechecked for any religious items, dress, appearance and then reminded of the rules which forbid any appearance of prayer which include any whispering, moving the lips without speaking, speaking to oneself, clasping hands together and so forth. This is useful as it takes up and makes time pass as one waits often more than four and even beyond six hours until the Waqf decided to permit Jewish access. Often weeks can pass with no more than two or three Jews permitted to visit the Temple Mount each day and as soon as one Jew is perceived of breaking one of the rules, all access is terminated for that day and often for the next few days or even weeks depending on the level of tension which is usually set through the incited rioting. This new so-called status-quo is quite intolerable and it has worked exactly as planned on the Arab side as they are hoping to spread their grip over every piece of Israel they are able to reach. The Temple Mount was their first experiment and it proved wildly and exceptionally successful and one can only wonder where this will go next. There have been signs of increasing violence in Judea and Samaria in Arab villages as well as some Arab neighborhoods in eastern parts of Jerusalem, especially along the light rail line. These have established other zones where it can be dangerous for strangers to enter, especially if one does not speak Arabic. One can only wonder if those leading the Israeli responses have studied Islamic history at all and even if they have read the Quran. Also, with their lack of correct response to Arab violence and declaration of changing rules of access to increase and soon declare absolute dominion further proves their lack of understanding of Islamic, and particularly Arab, tactics. President Trump can be excused simply because his advisors are entering this arena for their first time and when initially entering into new areas, it often will take some time to study and learn the rules and tactics of the other side. So, what do both the Israeli leadership and President Trump need to do to properly address the situation and gain equality if not the advantage?

 

President Trump, possibly on the advice of his closest advisors or on advice from the Netanyahu administration advisors, has already made two purely awful mistakes. The first likely has the Palestinian Authority licking their lips and rubbing their hands greedily believing they have another ignorant American President locked within their sights and all primed for the kill. With Mahmoud Abbas declaring that rage would erupt in the streets along with Arab leaders claiming they would not be responsible for any violence should President Donald Trump move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, President Trump declined to move the Embassy. This we know that Netanyahu’s advice was likely not to move the Embassy at this time as that can be done later and there was no reason to anger the Arabs and incite a response which would make reengaging the peace process more difficult. This was a grave error as it sent the message that President Trump could be cowed just as the Israelis have consistently been backed down over the years. Then an even larger mistake was committed when President Trump insisted that the Israelis allow Arab construction in any area that can be construed to be within the area of any existing Arab city or town that will permit the Arabs to extend their cities taking more and more land with new facts on the ground. Now the Arabs will start building as if there is no tomorrow as soon as they are cleared by Israel, which could become a demand with an immediate timetable put in place by Trump when he will be pressed by Abbas to show his promises are valid or forget any negotiations. Of course, Abbas still will not intend to negotiate until he has pocketed every last morsel he can squeeze from Trump forcing Netanyahu. All of this will result in a photo op, followed by more Abbas demands, which when denied, the meetings are done.

 

Hopefully, the lessons needed to be learned will be grasped before irreparable damage to the Israeli positions on the ground. The lesson is that the Arab and Islamic tactic is to threaten disruptions and rioting or other violence in order to gain advantages without making any concessions themselves. Trump should make up for his mistake, when he realizes that he had been played by Abbas and the Arab leaders, he should immediately start building the new American Embassy in Jerusalem. The next thing President Trump should consider is calling Prime Minister Netanyahu to Washington D.C. and together they should plan an aggressive confrontational style approach where Abbas is faced with negotiate or lose ground. They should take a strong track by sending the Jordanian Waqf back to Amman, Jordan and the Temple Mount completely opened up for universal access for all, ending the Islamic takeover of this almost universal holy site. President Trump taking the lead by moving the embassy to Jerusalem and having Netanyahu actually take the initiative and control over the Temple Mount should leave Mahmoud Abbas in shock and the Arab world reeling as their bluff has been called. From this point, President Trump will have more respect and room as he will have proven to be a worthy adversary, and do not get this wrong, in the Middle East you even need to act as if your allies are adversaries otherwise they will take advantage at every opportunity themselves. Once you prove your mettle and gain respect, as long as you retain that advantage the Arabs will behave predictably. The trick is keeping your advantage as any sign of weakness or loss of resolve will result in their pressing their newfound advantage whether it be real or imaginary as otherwise they would lose the respect of their fellow Arabs. President Trump need remember one more item; the Arabs are playing against one another just as much as they are looking to find any weakness in him. The secret is to keep the pressure on and never look back.

 

Once the Jordanian Waqf has been sent packing, the Temple Mount opened to the world with all having equal rights, the American Embassy being built in Jerusalem and Abbas being requested to enter into honest negotiations and without any further incentives except that all the items promised him will only be delivered upon his reaching, signing and enacting a real and final peace agreement with the Israelis which includes and complete end to incitement and all violence. Of course, the chance that Abbas would, or even could, ever promise and deliver on an end to incitement and violence is probably the greatest joke of the entire peace process. The sooner that President Trump realizes that Mahmoud Abbas is incapable of speaking the truth and equally incapable of making anything resembling peace, the sooner that plans can be made to forge a real peace, without Abbas and the Palestinian authority, if that proves necessary. Our opinion is that in the time it will take for Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump to come around to the reality that Abbas cannot make peace, simply because he has based his entire existence on his ability to destroy all of Israel, will likely be longer than President Trump has in office.

 

Temple Institute concept for what building the Third Temple in modern day Jerusalem would appear like from a distance with modern buildings of Jerusalem in the background. May their vision and this concept figure become fact and fulfill our desires for unity and a single Temple and House for Hashem in our midst. May this dream be fulfilled before the next Ninth of Av so our lament will be lessened.

Israel had an opportunity for real advances and real peace if our leadership had pressed from the start with the truth and reality instead of giving up any hope for an end of the confrontation with the Palestinians and the Arab world in general. Instead of telling Trump that Iran had to be settled and nothing else should interfere, he should have been told the only hope for peace was to confront Abbas and give him a choice of peace or the end of his rule. Then follow through and force peace on the Palestinian Arabs and allow them a semiautonomous region, which would remain under Israeli control though they would rule their own with elections overseen by Israel every five years starting in 2020. If Abbas declined and demanded things must be his way, then the time would have come for the complete liberation of the Palestinian Arabs by removing Fatah and the entirety of the Palestinian Authority and allow the Palestinian Arabs to have honest governance for the first time. All this was possible and is now dependent upon President Trump coming to his senses and realizing the reality, which might be made possible when Abbas oversteps his demands. Then all President Trump will need to accomplish is to drag Prime Minister Netanyahu kicking and screaming to actually take the path required and the bold steps required for peace. Please may all this come to fruition, if only it could be soon and the Temple rebuilt in our time. The truth President Trump, Americans, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Knesset Ministers, and Israelis Must Heed is One Surrender Equals a Thousand Victories.

Just Try to Understand the Problem

 

We admit, perhaps yesterday’s article was a bit over the top to the point of borderline ridiculous. Just Try to Understand the Problem from an Israeli perspective just this once. We promise that once you fully understand how preposterously ridiculous the demands made on Israel are and the history of the actual problem that you will never view the Arab-Israeli conflict the same way again. The first thing one need understand is the Arabs know there is no such thing as a Palestinian and that they are just Arabs from any number of nations. The vast majority are from one of five countries; Egypt has the most followed approximately by Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. There are others from such as Turkey, Yemen, Tunisia, the Sudan and others even further away. But if you take in the Arab World, which consists of all the nations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), then you would pretty much have them covered with the few stragglers from Turkey and the north-central Asian Muslim nations. There are also Christians, and Druze, though they make up a dwindling number as they flee from persecution by the Muslim Arabs. Israel, it must be remembered, has an Arab population making up just over 20% of the total population with the greater majority, 90%, being Muslims with the remaining 10% of the Arabs being Christians.

 

So just over one-fifth of the Israeli population is Arab and these are the Arabs who took Israel up on remaining here when the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, the Arab leader who spent all of World War II working alongside and in conjunction with the leaders of the Nazi Party and even raising two SS Divisions in the Balkans where they hunted down and murdered Jews and Serbs running concentration camps and it is rumored fairly reliably that Amin al-Husseini advised the Nazis at the Wannsee Conference and may have played a not so insignificant part in suggesting and getting the Final Solution to become Nazi policy. The Mufti of Jerusalem was known to protest vehemently against the plan to deport all the Jews to the British Mandate Areas which would have seen nearly ten million Jews sent to the area and saved six million Jewish lives. The Mufti of Jerusalem preferred dead Jews to Jews living in their ancient homeland. But none of this surprised the Zionist leadership or the Jews living in the Holy Lands. Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini was appointed by the British and worked with them to import tens of thousands of Arabs into the Holy Lands such that the Jews would never become the majority. In this way, the British could continue to deny the Jews their homeland claiming they did not constitute a majority and thus could not rule the lands. The Mufti also began pogroms against the Jews with the largest taking place in Hebron which was referred to as the 1929 Hebron Massacre which had a secondary uprising of Arab on Jew violence in Jerusalem. The most interesting thing was that the British authorities and troops stood by watching and when the Arabs appeared about to attack the British, the officer in charge discharged one pistol shot and the Arabs scattered. He could have ended the pogrom at any time with such a show of force but instead allowed it to continue resulting in sixty-seven Jews killed and around sixty were wounded with untold property damage. The cause behind the riot was Amin al-Husseini claiming that the Jews had attacked the Temple Mount and had damaged and were destroying the Dome of the Rock and the Mosques on the Mount. Does any of this sound even remotely familiar?

 

The chant in the pogroms of the 1920’s was ‘Jews destroying the Muslim shrines on the Temple Mount’ and then the chant driving the pogroms again in the mid and late 1930’s was ‘Jews destroying the Muslim shrines on the Temple Mount,’ particularly the Dome of the Rock. The First Intifada was driven by calls that the Jews were attacking the Temple Mount, though they changed their wording and used Haram esh-Sharif (Arabic: الحرم الشريف‎‎, al-Ḥaram al-Šarīf, “the Noble Sanctuary”, or الحرم القدسي الشريف, al-Ḥaram al-Qudsī al-Šarīf, “the Noble Sanctuary of Jerusalem”). The Second Intifada was driven by calls that the Jews were about to steal all the Arab lands and murder the Arab women. The logic behind this makes little sense as would not the reality be including the Arab men but in almost all societies the women are the more treasured and in Islam, they have that in spades. Since then the call whenever Abbas has desired stepping up the level of violence has been the Jews are desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas knows what he is doing as they have sold to the news crews that the Dome of the Rock can be substituted for the al-Aqsa Mosque. This permits the media to use a far more stunning and beautiful building in their reports while the truth is the al-Aqsa Mosque is a rather drab building on its exterior while the dome of the Rock has the huge dome covered in gold-filmed tiles making for a stunning picture (see pictures below). With the sun illuminating the dome making it absolutely radiant and claiming the Jews are trying to destroy this building works in Europe and around the world to cast the Jews as the destroyers of artifacts. It does not matter that there is absolutely no truth, it only matters that people want to believe the worst about Jews.

 

Dome of the Rock is on the Left al-Aqsa Mosque is on the Right One is Nice and Very Eye Catching The Other is Less Eye Catching thus al-Aqsa is Abused as an Armory and Used to Whip Up the Riots against Jews

 

Today the call to arms is the same with Abbas claiming that the Jews with their “Filthy Feet” to “defile our al-Aqsa Mosque” so “We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Allah,” (see video below). These are just some of what Mahmoud Abbas said on a television broadcast on Palestinian Authority television, a broadcast frequency controlled and gifted to the Palestinian Authority along with radio frequencies all of which they naturally refuse to pay their charges for the use of them. They believe that providing these services is amongst the numerous things that Israel owes them just for their existing. Here is the content which will be seen on the video provided by PMW (Palestinian Media Watch), “We bless you, we bless the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic), we bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” Make sure to note that Abbas claims that the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulchre belongs to the Muslims. This is simply standard procedure that any other religion being practiced within Islamic lands are simply poor forms of Islam and the Muslim leaders own their structures and at any time may alter them until they are presentable as Mosques at which point the Christians will be wiped out or converted by the sword, convert or die, and their structures finish their transformation and become actual Mosques. Without any further ado, here is the promised brief video.

 

 

The similarity between the Mufti of Jerusalem, Nazi Sympathizer and collaborator Amin al-Husseini and his use of the Temple Mount and Islamic structures to cause Muslims to riot and murder Jews and the use of the same strategy by both Yasser Arafat during the Second Intifada and Mahmoud Abbas who currently calls for defending the al-Aksa Mosque from Jews defiling it with their “filthy feet” and conducting Satanic rituals within the Mosque to incite riots currently, often leading into Jewish holidays, using the exact same wording is just too much to be ignored as this trend of using such lies to rise up hatreds just repeats continuously with the world all but ignoring the ruse and joining Abbas in cursing Israelis, particularly Jews. This is why Mahmoud Abbas started the rioting on the Temple Mount in parallel with Jordanians demanding that Jews be banned from the Temple Mount because their presence is what is causing the rioting. The Jordanians absolutely appear to ignore Mahmoud Abbas and his instigating the riots because the two are working together to close the Temple Mount to Jews. In the past year Abbas has called for Temple Mount rioting starting just before the Ninth of Av, the memorializing the destruction of the First and Second Temples and near uncountable other catastrophes that the holiday remembers but the Holy Temples are the most important element and climbing to visit the Temple Mount on that day is of great magnitudes of importance to many, if not most, Jews, especially those in Israel. These riots continued at varying levels of intensity for over two months so as to include Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur which are also known as the high Holidays. These are another time where many would wish to visit the Temple Mount but the rioting increased a few days before Rosh Hashanah continuing through Yom Kippur with Jordan once again demanding of the Israeli government to work with the Jordanian provided Waqf which makes Islamic ruling decisions over the Temple Mount through the good graces and allowance of Israeli government as a means of proving to the Islamic world that Israel is not hostile to their religious sensitivities. Sukkot is the next Jewish holiday and is one of the traditional Pilgrimage Holidays when the Jews were required to come to Jerusalem for religious observances where the priests, the Cohens and Levites, were required to perform sacrifices and distribute the edibles as divided by instructions from the Torah. This feast might be referred to as a religious Bar-B-Q with Kosher meat and all rules of Kashrut observed by all. Once again, as Sukkot approached, the rioting increased and again Jordan claimed the reason for the rioting was that Jews were allowed on the Temple Mount and demanded that the status quo be maintained.

 

Here is the dirty little secret, there is no such status quo, status quo simply means that Jews be refused permission to enter the Temple Mount. After the Six Day War Jews, Christians, Muslims and anybody who desired could enter the Temple Mount from any open entrance and walk around freely. That was the original condition and thus would, if anyone was being honest about this including the Israeli government, would be the status quo. As time went and the Arab leaders learned that if they rioted and demanded Jews not be permitted onto the Temple Mount that the Israeli government quickly responded and enforced their desires, then the rioting started to increase. As the rioting would increase, when it was finally allowed to die down there would be demands that the status quo not be altered and the restriction on which entrances Jews were permitted, and later that spread to all non-Muslims, became more and more restrictive until now there is one discreet all but hidden entrance that non-Muslims must use which is accessed through a makeshift bridge which the Israelis have petitioned for permission to repair and been told if it collapsed then the Jews will have to climb the rock face of the wall to reach the entrance. Simply rendered is they will then have finally pushed the status quo to only Muslims are permitted on the Temple Mount and UNESCO will be proven correct, it will have become an Islamic Waqf, an Islamic restricted Muslims only place. This will also affect Christians and any others desiring visiting this holy and ancient site. But that is slowly becoming an impossibility. And there is one person to blame that it started in this direction, General Moshe Dayan who advised that in order to not disturb Jordan and make return of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to Jordan to make peace the first step would be to permit the Jordanian officials who made up the Waqf to continue as the arbiters and custodians of the temple Mount. With time, they became the enforcers of restrictions and slowly increased their power and now are on the verge of making the Temple Mount into Islamic holy grounds where no non-Muslim may tread.

 

The real problem here is the timidity within the Israeli leadership, particularly Prime Minister Netanyahu. Often it appears that Prime Minister Netanyahu is more concerned with his remaining the virtual King by keeping the situation precariously balanced such that nobody desires taking the weight of leadership and thus as long as the Likud Party has the sole leader proven to be capable of at least not making things worse, then they will lead. Bibi Netanyahu also tends his personal garden, also known as the Likud Party, planting people who support him high on the list keeping them around him in the Knesset with a couple who appear ready to take the reigns of power should he decide to step down but also who know their power came from Netanyahu so they would never challenge his leadership. Those who would challenge his leadership and are capable of being a real challenge get buried on the listings somewhere past forty or even fifty thus never making the Knesset and soon fading from the scene, as they have no seat of power or position to garner support or media coverage. Then there are the supporting parties. Most honestly have not the ability to challenge Likud and even the strongest of the opposition parties have little chance of defeating Likud as proven in the last Israeli election where the entire reelection team which guided President Obama’s successful reelection campaign were unable to garner even mild support for the Labor Party and those who would have assisted their rule and Likud crushed them with one speech a day or so before the election by Bibi, that is the reality of Israeli politics today. Is there any hope? Oddly, the answer is yes and would require one of three events for such to become reality.

 

The easiest is for Jewish Home Party’s Naftali Bennett to actually run placing his party and himself as a direct challenge to Netanyahu and make a real go offering real change and a direct plan to solve the Arab situation by decapitating the Palestinian authority, sending Mahmoud Abbas to anywhere which would accept him and holding elections within six months in Judea and Samaria to establish local leaders and a central government which would be overseen by the Israeli government with the Ministers of the Economy, of Defense, of Finance, of Health, of Education, of Justice, of Transportation and of Construction all assigned to assist in the ruling of the Arab areas making sure the financial workings actually went where they would most help the people. The education system would necessarily undergo a massive transformation from incitement to actual education for a future, a productive future. The roads and utilities would undergo a complete refurbishing with new roads and power, water, gas and other utilities extended to all. People would actually be billed and expected to pay for the utilities used and they would be cut-off for nonpayment. The economy would be overhauled and the current monopoly held by Abbas’s two sons, Tareq and Yasser, would be splintered and new ownership would be arranged by choosing the best qualified from amongst the other employees who remained after the removal of the power structure of all of the Palestinian Authority which includes Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State, Muslim Brotherhood, Hezballah, IRGC, and other terror and foreign power’s agents. With such changes, the Arabs would actually have a future and so would their children and within a generation or two things would change so drastically that the idea of destroying Israel would mostly evaporate. But there is always the chance that Naftali Bennett is too comfortable in his position that he does not desire the challenge and responsibility of leadership. This should have the Jewish Home Party seeking new leadership. We have suggested one from amongst their ranks and a popular figure in Ayelet Shaked. When recently interviewed she was asked about just such possibility and her response was that she did see a future where she might seek to be Prime Minister but for now she desires raising her children first and maybe then taking a grasp at the golden ring. We would have only one question for Ms. Shaked, “What kind of Israel do you desire for your children. If it is a prosperous Israel without threats from within as well as without and Europe and world institutions grasping at our throats, then perhaps she might consider serving Israel as an important part of raising her children.”

 

Currently many of the problems facing the Israeli government are self-inflicted problems. The fact that they were allowed to develop to the point where the national security of the country is at stake and some might even claim that the nation itself is in danger of being turned upon by the world and at least the United Nations and other world institutions and NGO’s. The first step Israel need take is to institute rules whereby any NGO receiving over one third of its funding from outside of Israel, be it from other NGO’s, individuals and especially governments or world institutions such as the European Union and United Nations and its agencies, then it must seek licensing from somewhere other than Israel as they would no longer qualify as Israeli. This would include monies received from the United States even including Jewish foundations, Jewish community service groups or even Synagogues. Such restrictions would make Israeli limits on foreign capital being used in the name of Israel through various NGO’s as is currently the case, perfectly in line with the rest of the nations in the developed world, especially the ones in Europe where they are fighting such laws as they are the number one benefactors of being able to pretend their financed NGO is Israeli despite the bulk of its funds coming from European nations and funds. Another step would be to remove the current money skimming excuse for governance called the Palestinian Authority and send its leaders into exile and informing them that should they return they will face embezzlement charges, money laundering, misappropriation of government funds and a myriad of other charges with the fullest punishment possible being sought with the intent of imprisonment for the remainder of their lives. Let them understand that simply leaving and buying a villa and retiring living the good life would be advisable. Allow the individual towns and cities to elect their own leadership and have everything overseen by an elected Arab governance with Israeli oversight as explained above. And finally granting the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria resident alien status as almost all have Jordanian passports and identification papers or their parent have such. Let them know that terrorism will not be tolerated and anybody caught and convicted of terror related crimes will be deported immediately after serving their sentenced time in prison. Further, let them know and prove through actions that Israel now considers their areas as part of Israel and services will be improved to meet those anywhere in Israel. The Arabs also must know they will be charged for power, water and other utilities the same as any Israeli and will be treated equally. They also need to know that Israeli laws now apply in all areas. The Jordanian Waqf will be given an ultimatum, either permits their decisions to be overseen by Israel or pack up and return to Jordan but they will no longer refuse equal treatment to all on the Temple Mount and that is a final decision. Lastly, the Arabs will be informed that with time there may come into being a means of gaining Israel citizenship but that all terrorism must end before that can even be considered. Lastly, Jordan will be requested to renew the passports of their former citizens and to issue passports to the children and grandchildren as requested but solely for those Arabs residing in the areas which they once occupied. Make it known that Israel is aware and can easily prove that some of the people and their families who currently reside in Judea and Samaria were forced to relocate and live there as facts on the ground making the area appear Jordanian and that this is a crime against humanity and it really would be messy for such accusations to appear in the World Court of Justice.

 

With time, many of the citizens who desire may actually become Israeli citizens after going through some schooling on Israeli and Jewish history such that they would understand why this area is so precious to the Jewish People and why Jews are a people as well as a religion and a nation, probably the sole people fitting all three definitions. Also, there will be those Arabs now that they can sell off their land and homes and can move freely who will desire to return to their original country where they have families and fellow tribespeople and where they would feel more comfortable. To these people Israel promises to give them some degree of aid, not enough to make then independently wealthy, but make the move more comfortable but they would also sign a promise of never returning. Israel would ask that the United States, United Nations and European Union and any other groups or nations assist these people in restoring their lives and returning home. Israel will have fulfilled her part. Even those who go seeking brighter shores anywhere in the world that, once they have received all the necessary paperwork and acceptance to immigrate, then Israel would offer them a similar assistance package to make the move easier on them. These packages are not bribes as they are insufficient in size to ever be seen as such, they are to aid the people in relocating. We assist Jews coming to Israel, often far less than they might hope, but the least we can do is assist non-Jews desiring to leave though we invite all to remain and build a bright future in Israel.

 

We are sure we overlooked much, and this would make a start, but first the world need stop with their mad rush to destroy our little nation. We have returned home and here we are to stay. We have yearned for centuries, millennia for some, to return to Eretz Yisroel and to Yerushalayim and now that we have, we are not moving. Remember, for the largest part, none of you desire having Jews within your borders so leave us alone within our borders. And while we are on borders, the promise was everything west of the Jordan River and short of Gibraltar, well, maybe just the Mediterranean’s edge though the next land mass is Gibraltar. Oddly enough, Israel actually desires to improve the life of the average Arab family residing in Judea and Samaria. To that end, we should remove those who are stealing any chance for a future from their children by refusing to educate them and instead inciting them making them weapons in their futile fight. They seldom sacrifice their own, but freely throw the rest of the people’s children into a caldron of fire, sacrificing them to Ba’al just as was once the way in these lands before the Jews arrived. They would sacrifice their children to a stone effigy as part of religious celebrations serving their leadership. The leaders chose their children for sacrifice from the families which they believed required an attitude adjustment. Then they held the celebration whipping all into a frenzied hysteria much like the instigation from Mahmoud Abbas does with the broadcasts on television and radio which augments the education indoctrination system. The population now consists of mostly those raised with that indoctrination but Israel is willing to attempt to salvage those they can. Retrieving those who have been raised under the throws of Ba’al is never easy. When Joshua entered these lands, he was instructed to kill all the followers of Ba’al as they were beyond being retrieved. Joshua still tried to save those who he thought were retrievable and that is how some explain the problems we face today. The Arabs living under Abbas and his henchmen need saving more than anything else and Israel is willing to give them the required effort. The world need take the first step and permit the removal of the evil within their midst, the Arabists who sacrifice innocents for their personal gain, and that is all that would be required.
