A Quick Look Around the World

Even reading just a few articles this morning, we see that things have not drifted too far during our absence. Despite this static appearance, we realize it may take some time to get back in gear. Apparently, Turkey still wants to destroy the Kurds and the world is mostly just shrugging. We stand with what we have always stated, we support the establishment of the nation of Kurdistan. Of course, the world would never take such an honorable and wise move.

Apparently, Israel is still heading to the next election, which we fully support. As has oft been attributed to numerous people who worked and wrote around the times of the American Revolution, “The government which governs best governs least.” Without any currently empowered Knesset, we need not fear new rules and regulations, just a government finally working with relative efficiency. If that appears to be cynical, we plead guilty as charged.

 

The American Presidential carnival, provided for our perusal by the Democrat Party, has slimmed in numbers but not in coming amusement. We look forward to gaffs, but their positions of higher taxes and less freedoms are going to be a hard sell. All that will be needed is some honest reporting, who are we kidding, or other politicians simply revealing the reality they are peddling.

 

On another front, the United States is still as divided as ever with a sizeable number of Americans so opposed to Trump that they will never forgive him for winning the election. Israel is also divided in such a condition that electing a new government appears impossible. This is further indemnified by a number of parties and candidates running under the claim that they simply are not Bibi Netanyahu. These coming elections in the two nations will bear watching and writing our commentary as they proceed.

 

Well, we may as well be honest and admit that typing and publishing is posing to be a greater challenge than expected, or just as difficult as suspected. We will eventually either return to posting somewhat rambling articles or, and more likely, we will learn brevity and staying on subject. Until our next venture into parking in computer chairs and making new posts, hopefully with a good dose of foresight, we hope this small taste of our returning to our abnormal sense, we hope we can make this trip together.

Ding-Dong Baghdadi’s Dead (Delayed)

 

We have had a rough time of late, but are planning to make a comeback as soon as possible. Here is the last article we wrote but were unable to publish at that time. We thank our readers for their understanding.

According to reports we have read, Islamic State founder and spiritual guide, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was cornered by a combined American Special Forces team and detonated himself when he messed up taking a tunnel which was a dead end. Strangely enough, it was not the approaching American soldiers which frightened him into murdering his three children while committing suicide; it was the unnamed hero, their full partner and soldier, their service K-9. Facing the immediate and singular threat of this brave and faithful soldier caused this supposed brave soldier of Allah to surrender his life rather than try and fight this wonderful animal. So much for his presumed vicious and valiant fighting skills as he appeared to be more of a frighten child than a soldier of Allah. The end would not have been any different as the rest of the team was not far behind and would have finished whatever was required to complete their mission. The Service K-9 was injured during the operation and is reported to be making a full recovery and remains in theater and has been returned to duty with its handler. These beautiful animals are inseparable from their teams and specifically tied to their handlers, better stated as best friend and protector, though the dog will claim they are protecting those serving with them.

The details are thus far scant with further details sure to surface over time. President Trump Tweeted, “We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!” Finally, President Trump has committed to an understatement as the Service K-9 Corps has historically produced some of the most unbelievable animals. In Armed Services history, these animals have come in all shapes and sizes from some camels gifted to President Lincoln to help fight the Civil War to porpoises to K-9s to rodents trained for infiltration using small cameras and microphones. These Service K-9s are just as well trained as the humans they serve alongside. One cannot overplay the fearlessness and awareness of these beautiful beasts. There have been uncountable times that they have warned of approaching ambush points to sniffing out explosive devices such as mines on to almost anything one could imagine.

President Trump further commented about Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that he died like a dog. Perhaps a better retort might have been that he died facing an American dog as referring to al-Baghdadi as a dog is an insult to dogs everywhere. It is known that at least two of al-Baghdadi’s wives also died during the operation but it is unclear if they were struck by crossfire or committed suicide, but who really cares. The fact that al-Baghdadi surrounded himself with his children for protection and murdered them when taking his own life tells chapters about his character, if there was any. He was no different than the “brave” Arab Palestinians who place children at the front throwing stones at soldiers while they stand well back out of harms way and shoot at the IDF soldiers. Soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan have reported about the terrorist use of children as their protective armor understanding that American soldiers, just like their IDF counterparts, will not engage targets if doing so imperils the lives if children. But this is one of the main and most basic differences between their psychology and that of the civilized world, life for us means everything, to them it is just a throw-away tool. When it comes down to the bottom line, the current war, World War III, is about values and the survival of civilization or taking the world back ten centuries or more. Only one side can prevail, either the civilized or the barbarous, that is the decision we need to realize and focus upon, nothing else. Thank you our brave American Special Forces and all soldiers fighting for civilization to survive and a special affectionate thank you to one brave service K-9 who went first into harms way protecting his troops.

Democrat Party Opposes Israel Again

 

There were more statements by Democrat Party Presidential hopefuls stating that aid to Israel should be used to force Israel to surrender more lands to the Arabs. They are falsely claiming that “official United States policy” supports the two-state solution. The actual official position for the United States is fully defined under the The Anglo American Treaty of 1924 in which the United States joined the rest of the allies of World War I in support for the Mandate System and the Balfour Declaration including the provisions from the San Remo Conference. All of these paint a very simple picture, under international law, Israel has the rightful possession and ownership of all the lands west of the Jordan River stretching to the Mediterranean Sea. That includes the regions of Judea and Samaria or the Shomron or West Bank, no matter what you choose to call these regions, it all still belongs to Israel and that is the official United States policy under treaty. But why should we expect any historic knowledge to have any influence when the popular leftist belief is Israel is pure evil and should be punished simply for attempting to exist and have relative safety. We have spoken of this before and expect the position on Israel with the Democrat Party to simply continue to slide to an ever harder and rash position as time progresses.

There are those who have proclaimed that supporting Israel has become a partisan issue with the Democrat Party taking a strict line supporting the Arab Palestinian demands and insist that Israel is the obstacle to peace while the Republican Party has pledged to support Israel completely without regard for the propriety of their actions. Knowledgeable Zionists paying attention would probably give a less optimistic view of the United States. They would likely agree on the view given describing the positions of the Democrat Party but partially missed the reality about the Republican Party. Many of the old guard elite and the alt-right are completely opposed to even the idea of a Jewish State believing the founding of Israel was a grievous mistake of judgement and point to all the difficulties as their proof. What is true is that, despite the accusations of his being anti-Semitic, President Trump is a strong supporter of Israel which has been proven by his actions including recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and Israeli ownership of the Golan Heights. President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” has still to be released and that will be the final exam on how far he will back Israel. The rumors have run the gauntlet from it all belongs to Israel to some form of the two-state solution. Of course, anything short of it all belongs to Israel falls short of international law and obligations as written in existing treaties. This reality will become completely evident when the problem is adjudicated on the stage of the World Courts in Geneva. Just to place a cherry on top, Article 80 of the United Nations Charter also places the power of the United Nations in support of the Mandate Systems as defined by the League of Nations.

 

All of this is not something which should come as much of a surprise to most people. All one need do is read just a little about the atmosphere at virtually any of the top and largest colleges and universities and their progressive articulation of every problem in the world. The propensity of these campuses is to hold BDS conventions, Palestinian Solidarity Weeks and a plethora of other anti-Israel demonstrations and events. Add to this that their teachers often hold hard leftist positions which leads to their lessons slanting against Israel seeking to meet the demands of heavy Islamic pressures which come with their donations and founding of Middle East departments with the professors all meeting the criteria set by the donors. AOC along with Tlaib and Omar are the new Democrat norm along with Sarsour and almost all, if not all, of the Democrat hopefuls for President in the upcoming 2020 elections in America. This slides towards ending the good relations between the United States and Israel. The State Department has opposed Israel since her inception. The Defense Department has supported Israel as their testing grounds of their equipment in actual combat. This has led to some crucial adjustments to military hardware which were overlooked during their design. Fortunately, as pointed out in the article linked above, Israel is no longer dependent upon aid from the United States which now does more for providing sales for the American defense industries. If necessary, Israel could resume producing their own aircraft, the first since the Lavi fighter which was the initiating factor to the Israel-American military cooperation.

Dependent upon which party takes control of the White House and Congress in the 2020 elections will be whether the United States will continue their friendly relations with the Jewish State of Israel. The reality is that politics is heading away from Israel and eventually rejecting everything related to the Judeo-Christian ethics. This shift in the politics of the entirety of the Western World will inevitably lead to their complete break with Israel blaming Israel for being the originating force behind the Judeo-Christian ethics and continuing to believe in the core beliefs which would become the eventual basis for Western society. The newest view is that Western civilization spawned all the world’s evils despite being the driving force which has eradicated the vast majority of slavery and numerous other evils. But the new view of the social sciences is behind much of this as it rejects any goodness resulting from Western civilization. Should everything reach what is the obvious end of these teachings and philosophy, Israel may end up as the last bastion of Western Judeo-Christian ethics. What will be unfortunate of such an eventuality is that Israel may not find any allies to stand with her and, if fortunate, will find at least a few nations who will not stand against her. Europe may already be on the verge of becoming lost as far as Western and Judeo-Christian society being at its core and replacing it with Sharia and the United States along with the remainder of the Western world might not be all that far behind. The Democrat Presidential hopefuls, some of the new members of Congress and the long-standing anti-Israel position taken by the Congressional Black Caucus all indicate the continuing movement which will lead to Israel being rejected by United States political leadership. Currently, such would be largely a part of the Democrat Party, but this does not excuse Republican Party which will probably follow along behind the current trends. Prophesy expected there to come a time when Israel would be forced to stand alone. This has never looked more possible than when watching the current political rhetoric.
