Another Terror Attack, What Will it Take?

New York just had yet another terrorist attack. This was definitely a homegrown relative incompetent with a pipe bomb, but he still managed to injure three with at least one fairly seriously. Granted there was a fourth victim but that was the terrorist whose device apparently detonated prematurely. What we here call a premature detonation whenever the terrorist goes boom and it was unplanned. That differentiates them from the suicide bombers who intend to blowup with their devices. The Palestinian Arab leaders made a claim once that Israeli security forces were decapitating suicide bombers because their heads were found separate from their legs, their torsos were rarely found at all, as they were mostly in very small pieces spread over a wide area. The absolute gall to make such a sick claim about often young people with mental difficulties or gullible youth who were brainwashed into the belief that they would have a corporeal existence with wine, grass fields of green, palm trees and their seventy-some perpetual virgins and other sexual delights in the next life. These kinds of monsters will never stop voluntarily as long as they can find others to carry out these deadly deeds, these lethal terrorist acts. Sometimes, if the attack is worthy, they will sacrifice themselves but they still require some others who are often not told the entire plan and allowed to believe they will survive the attack only to find out too late that there will be no returning from the attack. The terror attacks on Paris, London, New York and the others are just the trickle before the torrent that is coming. Wake-up people, these terrorists are just the introduction to the main events to come at a later date. The attacks will only grow in lethality and competence.


We have map showing the terror attacks year-by-year from 2001 through 2016 below. We took the information from the Tech Insider within Business Insider which displayed these United States maps within a World Map which is impressive as it is frightening. Those maps are worth a look-see. But the maps we took and enlarged depict a continuous string of terrorist acts in or around New York and the Washington D.C.-Philadelphia-New York-Boston corridor. This begs the question of how many or how frequently do these terror attacks have to become before the people demand the government put an end to your vulnerability? The only idea we could come to is that you thusfar are considering these acts of terror as infrequent enough and of such a nature as they do not rise above the common violences your cities have suffered already and you simply added this to street crimes. The only other explanation was that most of these terror attacks were classified as some other criminal act and not reported as terrorism and only later, possibly considerably later, were the people told the truth, that is if they were ever told the truth. If your reality has been hidden and disguised as something other than terrorism, well these maps provide the real picture and now you can act as informed people. We wish you best of luck with City Hall. (Article continues below maps)

We would like to look to the coming future for a while. The violence in the Middle East in general and Israel in particular, was at some point a terror attack every month within a sea of violence under British Rule where both Jew and Arab fought the British, sometimes even cooperating. Once it became apparent that the British were not going to prevent completely the formation of a Jewish State, the Arabs became more angered by that eventuality than British rule. That meant that some of the attacks, which had been carried out against the British, were now done against the Jews. Israel was declared a state and the 1948-9 War was initiated by the Arabs with six countries and numerous militias invading Israel on the morning of her birth and before she had established a military. The Jews call this their War of Independence despite it being an Arab War to Annihilate the Jews and Erase the Jewish State. The Jews and Arabs who fought as Israelis claim they won the war as they still existed, but the reality is they lost some of the lands west of the Jordan River, the Jordan River was the original eastern boundary. Egypt had possessed the Gaza Strip and Jordan possessed Judea and Samaria, which they gave a less Jewish sounding name of West Bank. The bias of the world and the media is made obvious by their use of the terminology “West Bank” as that simply furthers the lie that these lands were not part of Israel at dawn of May 15, 1948, according to international law and the recognized set boundary by the United Nations and most of the world including the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union. The world has attempted to forget that and to allow the Arab world to have an advantage in crushing the Jewish State from existence.


This is also why most of the terror attacks, if they are not able to spin them as part of the vital fight against the oppressor Israel by the unfortunate Arabs ignoring that the Arab League has backed the Palestinian struggle, as it is defined, with arms and supplies and the world has all but buried their leaders in gold through their funding of all efforts blindly. The terrorism rose continually with an uptick coming with the founding of the PLO in 1964. From that point the terror slowly crept higher and higher until with the onset of the Second Intifada in 2000 after Yasser Arafat ended negotiations and returned home waiting for any event on which to blame the Israelis for his already planned waves of violence designed to drive the Jews from Israel. He got his golden opportunity when Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount where he walked in the open areas and entered none of the buildings found there, especially not the al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock which were used as the instigation for the waves of suicide bombers, shootings, bombings and other terror activities. If you read the Al Jazeera version, you will note the Arab reports were he entered their sacred place defiling it by his presence. Their reasoning is they define even the open spaces as part of the Mosque in order to refuse Jews even entry onto the Holy Site of three religions. This violence which was leading to unacceptable violence and losses through deaths and maimed individuals, some being Druze, Arab, visitors from the world over, but mostly Jews as they were target one, led to the building of the Security Barrier which is mostly fencing, with well kept sand to register anyone crossing through the fence, as well as concrete walls where sniper fire had become a problem. The Security Barrier is the “wall” of oppression, which Arabs had sued in the Israeli Supreme Court and got it rerouted when it would have cut a farmer from his lands. Once constructed this barrier cut down on infiltrations and the related terrorism to almost nothing with the occasional terror attack. The world now calls this Security Barrier an “Apartheid Wall” demanding it be torn down so as to permit the free slaughter of Israelis to begin again. That is the actual reason for demands to remove this barrier, to permit the destruction of Israel just as the BDS Movement also is attempting to destroy Israel as they connect almost every Jewish company with their claims of using the Arab lands for their products and services because the entirety of Israel is considered occupied Arab lands to the leaders of these movements.


The story here is if you do not nip terrorism in the bud when it is little more than a nuisance, then with time it will become life threatening. Yes, the police claim they are preventing dozens of attacks that must remain secretive. Eventually they may be preventing hundreds or even thousands of attacks while the number of attacks which get through also rise proportionally leading to terror attacks on a weekly basis with a mass attack once or twice a month. The question you need ask is from where do the reasons and ideas come from for these terror attacks and at what point might New Yorkers in particular and the free world in general going to do something about these attacks. The vast majority of the terror attacks are attempts to force submission out of the Western Free World and have them submit to Islam and bow before Allah. These terror attacks will continue until Sharia with Imams holding all the positions of power in Government and all non-Muslims taking the position of Dhimmitude. This includes but is not limited to having no right to witness in courts of law (Sharia), Muslims using the sidewalk while non-Muslims use the gutters of the street, bowing so as to never appear taller than a Muslim, accepting degrading treatment from Muslims and a whole host of other fun things ending with the paying of the special non-Muslim tax, the Jiyza and eventually being given the choice of convert to Islam or die. This is the end which terrorists believe they are forcing you into through their acts. They also are granted a free pass into heaven no matter their former crimes and sins, and in an Islamic community, having sinned is their version of the Scarlet Letter.

Investment in Higher Educations Hath Wrought


College and University faculty and administrators were dominated by conservative and largely religious members in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Starting in the late 1960’s a far more liberal and leftist influence was given the initial entry. The reasoning was that they added a diversity of thought and there was little desire to use intellectual viewpoints as an exclusionary criterion. These new faculty, and soon also administrators, initially showed some degree of openness but often they would make arguments that their positions were in the minority. This argument held sufficient weight that within a short period of time, these leftists and their petitioning established themselves as a slight majority. Once they had established majorities in a goodly number of universities and colleges, they began a purge of the conservatives, often offering early retirement with sizeable severance bonus as an incentive, one might say bribe, to depart early allowing for more of their own numbers. This quickly led to the situation these institutions are in today with rare exceptions. This was the beginning of the purging of the institutions which seek college and university graduates to fill their positions, particularly the upper management and high-skilled positions. They were able to infiltrate and then control the greater part of the media, educators of the public schools systems as well as many private systems, entertainment, information technology positions, the main internet corporations and virtually all the major metropolitan government and the deep state of the Federal Government. These are the sources of the recent upheavals in American and European societies where much of traditions have been turned on their heads. Today society has been fragmented into thousands of identity first groups which can be pitted one against the other.


The new normal is if you belong to any group which is perceived to have had any kind of advantage in the past, then you must pay for that history and be denigrated and denied a fair opportunity for positions, advancement or preference of any kind. For example, white males must pay for the entire history of the industrialized west and their positions of power within. Remarkably, the sole measure is who held the positions of power in the industrialized western world. For example, there are no impediments placed on Muslims who actually are considered to be disadvantaged despite their historic period of empire which remains today as the Arab Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and has shown signs of becoming resurgent. Somehow, Arabs have been determined to be a minority people of color needing assistance against the former dominant white males. Never mind that there have been numerous different groups who were the dominant culture all over the globe. The Mongols had one of the largest empires in all of history. The Chinese have had several periods of empire and may be on the verge of another period of greater influence and power. Thailand was formerly known as Siam when they held power over much of Southeast Asia. Russia has been referred to as Empire throughout history. The French, British, Spanish, Dutch, Portugal and others have all had periods of Empire. There were empires in the Americas such as the Toltec, Olmec, Maya and Aztec. There have been empires from early history such as the Egyptian, Hittite, Babylon, Assyrian, Carthaginian, Pandyan, Macedonian, Seleucid, Ptolemaic, Armenian and others before Rome, talking about empires. A rather comprehensive list of empires over the years and around the globe can be found here. The point is virtually every race and peoples held empire of some measure somewhere in history. Despite history showing that all peoples were at some time rulers of their area and the most advanced in their regions, only Caucasians, and mostly males, are being targeted by the new, leftist political establishment. Truthfully, the targeting seems to actually get even more specific, it attempts to target conservative and religious when possible.





This is the result of identity politics. The problem is once you claim you resent identity politics or even use the terminology identity politics, that makes you a target as anyone complaining about identity politics is obviously a racist individual who probably uses racial identity as part of your determination of who is to be trusted and who is a danger. The leftists who practice identity politics though, are serving to equalize past discrepancies which caused inequalities favoring one group over others. The other thing necessary to know is that there are a few rules which are the truths which have presumably given certain groups advantages over other groups and these have been true over all of history, according to the authorities of identity politics. One of these rules is that men have had advantages over women, whites over other races and these have been the two main standards. There is one set of rules which holds for nations and they have been defined as those who have been the industrialized militarily successful nations. That and have had White privilege. That restricts this to Europeans, the United States and the rest of the British Empire nation. There have been some exceptions such as Japan which was one of the nations which fits the description but misses one main contingent, white privilege. There is one nation and its people who, despite not having any empire for the last three-thousand years, being of many different racial makeups and having been the victim of one of the greatest acts of hatred in history who have still been placed as the one nation alongside the United States as the greatest example of privilege, Israel and the Jews. Evidence of this can be seen in the example pictured below. This image has been used by Black Lives Matter (BLM) as well as far right White Supremacist groups with both claiming that Jews were manipulating and stealing positions which should have been given to them. The Jews hold the unique position of being targeted as the cause of people’s problems by the extremes on the left and the right. The way the Jewish people are described one would not be blamed for believing there is no such thing as a Jew who is not wealthy, or at the very worst, not poor. This is not entirely true, which I can honestly attest to as a former day laborer who was often not the first chosen for jobs being of slight build when younger and will wish I could get back to that weight again. What is interesting is that in many instances it would be all but impossible to differentiate between Jews and Muslims in a line-up.


White Privilege Starts with Jewish Privilege

White Privilege Starts with Jewish Privilege


The whole idea of pretending that racial or religious preferences exist or that discrimination is a huge problem and very probably the largest challenge society faces. What is sad is that the same people who are claiming that racial, religious, gender and other such qualifiers are still used as the main and decisive reasons for hiring personnel actually get audience in the United States or much of the developed world. Those battles were fought and pretty much settled in the last century and using it for political purposes and to infuriate and activate to the verge of violence or beyond is one of the saddest truths today. There are other sad truths which revolve around these purely political claims and forced divisiveness. Society in the United States was in many ways less divided forty and fifty years ago than it is today. This sad reality is very much being forced intentionally in order to divide society and wield an unbeatable political alliance. A large part of what makes the problems being faced by many in our society are not as much racial and financial. Those living in the heart of most large metropolises are stuck in broken schools where the atmosphere for learning is completely stifled by a combination of policies demanding that the public schools must take even the most disruptive students requiring much effort be invested in security along with the least experienced teachers being assigned makes these schools often substandard. Charter Schools often can make a difference, as they are not restrained by many of the worst inhibitions and limitations placed on the regular public schools. They choose their own teachers and are permitted to hire, fire, promote and demote without interference by teachers’ unions or school boards. These special schools also can choose to expel students who are disruptive while the public school has no such power any longer. The Charter Schools are opposed by the teachers’ unions and the politicians who support these unions. Were the entirety of schools were permitted to operate under the same rules the level of education in the inner cities would improve drastically, and the union would cease to have any power. That union power and the politics behind it has sentenced the poor, the financially disabled, to continue to have little hope of climbing out from the hole in which they were born. There was a time when all schools ran with similar rules as the Charter Schools and provided and superior product to the inner cities than they are now capable of providing, rules as they are.


There once were special schools for the most problematic student called Reform Schools. There once were asylums for the mentally challenged or disabled. Some social scientists decided that these institutions were counterproductive and that such individuals would be better served if they were integrated into the mainstream rather than treated separately. The theory was that by mixing these differently challenged individuals with the normative individuals they would be better off and would, in time, be normalized. There was no concern what effect such changes would have on the so-called normative individuals. For the mentally disadvantages this became numerous mentally ill individuals no longer making their appointments with supervising physicians, getting or taking their medicines or having their counselling sessions. Many of these individuals were not better for their experience and became fair numbers of the homeless. Without medical attention, they simply were incapable of functioning within society, and some believe those who decided this was a wise experiment knew this would be the result. Some believe that they actually hoped for this as it provided yet another political football to put in play at election time. For students in schools in what some refer to as troubled areas, others call inner cities, the level of education completely fell apart. This too was part of the plan so that more political power would come from the problem caused. They have decided that people are less important than political power and funds which brings more influence and thus more power. The entire game is being played with human capital and the society of the United States is losing the longer this game is played. The problem grows and very few ever desire to take on the battle because the deck is stacked, the game rigged and the field tilted against you. As soon as you begin to point to the problems, you run into the name-calling. When you claim that there is a problem with the inner city schools, you are labeled a racist. When you address the mental problems plaguing many of the homeless, you are labeled unfeeling. When you step onto this field, the leftist and liberal media will tear you to pieces, the left wing politicians will denounce you, teachers from the union will cast you as the devil incarnate, and every derogatory name in the book will become attached to your name, and very few are willing to take that risk. All we can say is we have nothing to lose in such a theater because if people are helped, then it was worth the risks.

Lowdown on the Entire Jerusalem Fiasco


President Trump did indeed say, “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.” A little while later he added, “Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.” Then he stated, “Jerusalem is the seat of the modern Israeli government. It is the home of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as well as the Israeli Supreme Court. It is the location of the official residence of the Prime Minister and the President. It is the headquarters of many government ministries. For decades, visiting American presidents, secretaries of state, and military leaders have met their Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem, as I did on my trip to Israel earlier this year.”


Moving along we get to where President Trump stated the obvious, “Jerusalem is not just the heart of three great religions, but it is now also the heart of one of the most successful democracies in the world. Over the past seven decades, the Israeli people have built a country where Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and people of all faiths, are free to live and worship according to their conscience and according to their beliefs.” Then started the qualifying his statements thus far when he limited where Jews can pray excluding them from prayer on the Temple Mount just as the Muslims and Arab Palestinians have demanded things be stating, “Jerusalem is today, and must remain, a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross, and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque.” Then comes the teaser, “But today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It is something that has to be done. That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”


This was a validly true statement which might have carried a lot of weight had President Trump not added this little gem, “In making these announcements, I also want to make one point very clear: This decision is not intended in any way to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement. We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. We are not taking a position on any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem or the resolution of contested borders.” And shortly thereafter, things went from weak to expanding wiggle room stating, “Without question, Jerusalem is one of the most sensitive issues in those talks. The United States would support a two-state solution if agreed to by both sides. In the meantime, I call on all parties to maintain the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites, including the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif.” Then came stating the obvious and the empty promises with these two lines, “There will, of course, be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement. But we are confident that ultimately, as we work through these disagreements, we will arrive at a peace and a place far greater in understanding and cooperation.” Now was time for optimism and President Trump did not disappoint as he restated from the Summit in Saudi Arabia adding, “I repeat the message I delivered at the historic and extraordinary summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year, The Middle East is a region rich with culture, spirit, and history. Its people are brilliant, proud, and diverse, vibrant and strong. But the incredible future awaiting this region is held at bay by bloodshed, ignorance, and terror. Vice President Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations.”


We apologize for repeating close to half of the speech, but the path taken was less than perfectly straight as it took some nasty curves and swerves around the obvious doing everything necessary to keep Jerusalem in play. President Trump was not about to give up the largest chip in his hand before he could use it in a bet to gather concessions from one side or the other. President Trump still believes that as a businessman he has what others lacked, the magic touch with which to arrange the perfect, you give they give and each takes half of this and that presto-chango and you have an Arab-Israeli peace deal. We really hate to burst President Trump’s bubble, but there is one stopper to a peace deal which even he, the great realestate magician, will find he cannot crack, Mahmoud Abbas and his final demands. What can President Trump offer Mahmoud Abbas in exchange for surrendering on the complete eradication of the Jewish State and the reduction to nil of the Jews residing there? This has been Israel’s Ace in the hole as no matter what is offered, we know that Mahmoud Abbas will say no as long as Israel remains the Jewish State.


The two main historic points of negotiations were the 2000 Camp David Summit between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat overseen and assisted by President William Jefferson Clinton. One can read a complete story which covers much of the negotiations by Wikipedia of the 2000 Camp David Summit but we will give our summation as well. As one would expect, there were accusations and insults passed back and forth until the two main parties refused to sit in the same room. The Camp David part of the negotiations ended with severe acrimony. President Clinton is persistent if nothing else and he demanded that the parties meet in Paris to try again, this time with his taking a more active role, he was convinced that his gifts of persuasion could alter what had previously proven to be an intractable situation. The talks again broke down quickly so President Clinton stepped into the breach. He spoke with Ehud Barak and demanded he define his best offer which he took to Yasser Arafat, after exacting out of Barak every inch of land and other allowance and benevolence until he was satisfied he had a presentable agreement. Then he took this to Yasser Arafat and the offer was refused, as we could have told President Clinton it would have been. President Clinton is not one to be put off that easily, so he worked for a few more hours with Arafat until he got him to put forth a proposed settlement that he would accept. Of course, Arafat gave President Clinton a set of terms he was sure that Ehud Barak would never accept even under torture. President Clinton truly was persuasive when upon returning to Barak he got him to accept whatever deal Arafat had proposed. President Clinton then sent invitations to both parties to attend breakfast the next morning without, apparently, telling either side there would be a signing ceremony. When Arafat came down a short time after Barak and saw papers laid out on the table and the media in attendance, he shot straight through the room, out the front door with Madeline Albright chasing after him, and into his car heading straight to the airport and took flight to Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan. There is contention as to what exactly was in the final presumed agreement but many claim it was a generous offer which was the most ever offered up to that point.


A while later President George W. Bush was persuaded, likely by his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to take a shot at Middle East peace. Summations of the final settlement offered which was refused by Abbas can be read from these sources; Jerusalem Post, Wikipedia, Haaretz, Times of Israel and an interesting editorial from the New York Times. He arranged meetings between Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas along with shuttle diplomacy with diplomats and officials flying between Washington D.C. and both Jerusalem and Nablus. The result was the definitive offer of the most it is likely Israel would or ever will be willing to provide. This was supposed to be the greatest and closest offer which could be and still, as it left the State of Israel intact as the Jewish State, this made it unacceptable to the terrorist leadership of the Palestinian Arabs. Many have pointed out that the Israeli People have suffered and will continue to suffer from terror attacks and threats which we have seen can be set in motion like a water spigot, simply say the words “Days of Rage” and the rioting begins and will continue until requested to end by the terror leaders of the Arab Palestinians. Those who riot are the youth and a core of instigators who are hardened terrorist planners, trainers and facilitators. The other sufferers are the Arabs Palestinians as their wealth is stolen, they are subjected to the disturbances as are the Israelis, are forced to support terrorism which of which many are not necessarily in favor and are forced to live in an atmosphere unfavorable for their making an honest living. This has been proven from some who have committed acts of terror who confess that they did so for the money their family would receive, as it was the most prosperous means they had left to them. Allow us to offer up a commentary on the aforementioned Palestinian Authority pay for slay policies.

Let us now move on to the commentary about Jerusalem and its relations as the capital city of the State of Israel and what the President of the Czech Republic stated recently. The following quotes were taken from two articles, Czech President Blasts EU over Jerusalem Stance and Czech President Hints: We could move embassy to Jerusalem which were both published by Arutz Sheva.


“The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement,” said Czech President Milos Zeman commenting before delegates attending the congress of the nationalist Freedom and Direct Democracy party. President Milos Zeman had stated formerly, “Trump’s decision makes me happy because when I visited Israel four years ago, I said that I would like to transfer the embassy, and that if that happens, we will be the first to do so,” He added at that time, “Every country has the right to decide which city will serve as its capital, and by the same token, every country has the right to decide where its embassy will be located. Trump’s move was meant to demonstrate the self-confidence of the United States, and that’s very positive.”


The Czech Republic followed in the footsteps of U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday and said it recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel within limitations, as apparently nobody is quite brave enough to state the truth, that everything west of the Jordan River is rightfully and legally belonging to Israel and there can be no other legal claim. The Palestinian Arabs are guaranteed the right to open and unencumbered employment, legal rights, property rights, and social rights but are restricted from political rights which remains definable as the State of Israel cares to define them. A statement issued by the Czech foreign ministry stated, “The Czech Republic currently, before the peace between Israel and Palestine is signed, recognizes Jerusalem to be in fact the capital of Israel in the borders of the demarcation line from 1967.” They added the formal weasel wordings of the European establishment doing all they can to eradicate Israel even if in steps adding, “The Ministry can start considering moving of the Czech embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem only based on results of negotiations with key partners in the region and in the world.”


Returning to our own commentary, we simply wonder how long the world, led by the Arab League who are faithfully followed by the Europeans and the United Nations and encouraged by the leftist and far right media and too many other sources and nations in a never ending plotting to destroy Israel. The British did all they could from the moment they took control of the Mandate to form the Jewish State out of the lands handed them to make sure that the Jewish State would never materialize. Their first move was to take 78% of the British Mandate and make the Arab State of Transjordan, today known as Jordan, giving it to the Hashemite family and King Abdullah I bin al-Hussein, as compensation for his family losing their former rule over the Two Holy Cities of Islam, Mecca and Medina, which were conquered after World War I by the Saudis filling the vacuum left when the Ottoman Empire collapsed. This took care of all the lands east of the Jordan River. The British, in conjunction with the surrounding Arab nations and the Arab League, always made sure to keep an Arab majority in the lands west of the Jordan River so they could refuse giving the Jews sovereignty, as they were a minority. This was very costly to world Judaism as the British imposed a cap on Jewish immigration to their holdings of seventy-five-thousand per year and, in order to assure this cap was never breached, they seldom even permitted the full number. According to Jewish Virtual Library the decade from 1929 through 1939 approximately one-quarter of a million Jews were permitted entry into the British Mandate area for the Jewish State meaning that the British actually allowed twenty-five-thousand Jews per year out of the set limit of seventy-five-thousand. The British finally decided to relinquish the headache of trying to keep order between the Arabs and Jews which would regularly explode between them and both were also working to rid the land of the British. All in all, this made the British continued command of the Mandate a burden no longer acceptable, so they set a date of May 15, 1948 for their departure. The United Nations General Assembly made a suggestion to divide the land, which legally all was an aside for the Jewish State, and despite having legal claim, the Zionist Congress and Jewish authorities accepted but the Arab League refused which voided the entire resolution. This meant the lands west of the Jordan River relented back to the original Mandate of forming a Jewish homeland and Israel came into being on the date of May 15, 1948 defined as all the lands west of the Jordan River. Any lands taken in the ensuing war of Arab aggression were illegally occupied. The Gaza was subsequently released by Israel to the Palestinian Authority who lost it soon after to Hamas. The area historically known as Judea and Samaria (Jordan renamed West Bank to remove the Jewish sounding names) is still legally defined as part of the Jewish State unless or until Israel decides otherwise. Should Israel decide to apply their rule over the entirety of Judea and Samaria, it is within their legal purview. What the world need realize and admit is Israel also does not have to provide political rights such as voting in national elections or even local elections, in areas Israel desires they not have a political say, as Israel is only required to provide social rights, religious rights, financial rights and other rights other than those of a political nature according to all the original resolutions, treaties and other measures all based on the Balfour Declaration and its specific wording.
