When in Cairo at the Fund Hamas and Islamic Jihad and World Terror Supporting Gala one expects no small amount of fawning over Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority and its latest unity government and denunciations of Israel and Zionism. It can perhaps be excused to air an amount of acrimony while criticizing Israeli use of disproportionate power and possibly asking rhetorically if the amount of destruction in Gaza might have possibly been averted and announce grand promises to alleviate the suffering of the residents of Gaza. All of Israel would love to alleviate the suffering in Gaza if it were to be accompanied by a real peace with security and an end to rockets landing on the unfortunate citizens in towns bordering Gaza to the east such as Sderot, Ashkelon , Ashod, Be’er Sheva, and the Kibbutzim along the Israeli southern border with Gaza as well as any escalations where hundreds of rockets per day rain down on the residents listed and additionally on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Netanya and the bordering towns and neighborhoods which account for over seventy percent of the Israeli population. We even accept that there is no mention of these victims of the recent conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and it was a conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad and not with the people of Gaza except in as far as they served as a protective shield for the Hamas and Islamic Jihad war machine and the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist army which was raining rockets into Israel. We have learned that what Western representatives say in Cairo and other Arab cities is to be mostly ignored by Israel as long as corrections are offered by our political leadership and the perfidy and lying remains in Cairo and other Arab cities and not be taken out into the general rest of the world. That is not what happened yesterday and the denunciations of Israel going to an international setting must be answered with some truths which remain obscured by these righteous representatives of the Western nations and the purveyors of honorable truths go so far awry straying into areas which can only be classified as the new blood-libels of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism with a few exception such as the current Canadian government under Prime Minister Harper.
Perhaps the best place to start is with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon who blamed the conflict with Hamas and its terrorist allied entities on the Israeli occupation in Gaza. There has been absolutely no occupation in Gaza by the Israelis since the disengagement where Israel tore out their emotional hearts wringing hands at the wretched scene of IDF soldiers dragging sobbing women and children from their homes and neighborhoods, tearing down the Synagogue to prevent its desecration, and threatening the older men and younger adults, both men and women, and eventually dragging them down from the roofs of their homes and community centers forcing them into buses to be transported to nowhere, a nowhere which was spread around southern and central Israel placing them in inadequate makeshift mobile homes, many of which had no electricity, sewage, or water hooked up as of yet and there they remained while Israel at first took care but slowly their plight faded from the consciousness and many of them have yet to recover and recollect their shattered lives to this day. If this had been the limit of the sadnesses of those days and that horrific sacrifice but it did not end there. What was mostly shielded from Israeli citizens’ eyes was the even more horrific scene of Israeli Security Police and IDF soldiers exhuming every last Jewish grave disturbing those interred there and reburying them in a cemetery within Israel as had the dead been left there their graves would have been desecrated and possibly their bodies dragged from their resting places to be burned and dragged around in an orgy of horrid unsightly ghoulishness as depraved as any of the ancient sacrifices to Ba’al and other pagan deities. There has not been any Israeli occupation of Gaza and Israelis have not set foot in Gaza since the disengagement except when forced to give a military response to Hamas unceasing rocket fire into Israel such as was the cause of the recent conflict, not any form of occupation.
Then there are the inconsistencies in Western acquiescence to Palestinian demands and their adopting those demands and attempting to foist their compliance on Israel in the name of peace, but they will not bring peace. They say nothing about the demand that all Palestinian occupied lands be free of any Jewish presence while insisting that Israel continue to give full rights to the Arab and Muslim citizens within Israel, something Israel has provided them since her founding and has never challenged or threatened to revoke their equal standing in Israeli society. They not only demand that Israel remove any Jewish presence from Palestinian lands but also give credence to the Palestinian demands that Israel incorporate some five-million Palestinian refugees and provide them with Israeli citizenship and assure that they receive adequate housing and other privileges. Somehow this is what defines equity and fairness to the minds of many of the Western elite. In Israel this equates to the European propensity for anti-Semitism and their recent and seemingly endless obsession with destroying the state of Israel and making it into simply another Arab state with no regard for the continued safety of the Jews. There is also the wrongheaded agreement with the canard that all the Jews in Israel originated from Europe and that the Jews in Israel are actually European colonialists. Israel as a Mandate Land was treated as a British colony from before 1920 until finally in 1948 when Israel was born. The Israelis were not the colonialist power as Britain was the occupying colonial power. Further, by 1950, two years after her founding, Israeli Jewish population was virtually equally consisting of Jews who emigrated from Europe and Jews emigrating from the Middle East and Northern Africa as the numerous Arab and Muslim nations made concerted and even overt acts to rid themselves of their Jewish populations and in many cases expelling them sending them into Israel. The Arabs know and fully understand that the threatening demand that the Jews return to where they came from is impossible as these very same Arab nations would never allow their Jews and their descendants to return and settle in their lands. Still, the Arabs are echoed by the Western political leadership that all the Jews in Israel originated in the West and mostly are from Europe. These libels also ignore the large Russian influx of Jews once they were permitted to make Aliyah from the Soviet Union. The other mistreatment originating from the Western elite is their ignoring of the hatreds taught in the Palestinian schools and the incitement which permeates their societal activities. The teaching of martyrdom as being a desirable end as long as it is aimed at Israel and the Jews is part and parcel of Palestinian media of every genre. This incitement goes hand-in-hand with their glorification and deifying of terrorists who murdered Israelis by any means including but not limited to ambushes of busses, suicide murder bombings, drive by shootings, rock throwing at and from vehicles, shooting across from one neighborhood to the next, rioting and assassinations of IDF and security police. UNRWA schools and camps teach children from preschool throughout their education that they were from Israeli cities and their most cherished desire is to return to their birth city or city of origin which include Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Akko, Netanya, Tiberius and every other city, town and kibbutz within Israel. This is ingrained into these children’s minds from an early age in order to promote an institution where every child believes that they were uprooted and their destiny is to return to their home in Israel and take the Jewish homes restoring their homeland and their entitlement which must be rewarded.
There are other Westerns echoing, restating or granting credence by not denying Palestinian blood-libels against Israelis and Jews. Many of these are old and discredited only to be given rebirth by the Palestinians and seldom denied or corrected by Western leaders who act as if they fear retribution if they stand up for the truth. The Western leaders refuse to counter the canard that the essays titled “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” are nothing more than a Czarist invention written to justify the pogroms against the Russian Jews by Czarist forces. The Protocols have been exposed for quite some time but have been allowed to be given new life and credence in the Arab and Muslim world without even the slightest denunciation and counter fact from Western leadership. Hitler’s screed “Mein Kampf” is one of the most bought and read books throughout the Arab and Muslim world and is not refuted as the vile and disgusting tome of hatreds, lies and manifestations of a troubled and hateful mind. Instead of denouncing these megalomaniacal writings, Western leaders just ignore this reality and continue printing copies of “Mein Kampf” in Arabic and shipping it to bookstores in the Middle East and North Africa. Western leaders associate equality for the Palestinians as forcing compromises and concessions on Israelis while excusing and justifying Palestinian prevarications and accusations giving them credence and gravitas despite knowing it all to be empty fabrications. Western leadership knows just as many Israeli leftists supporters that the idea of an indigenous Palestinian Arab peoples is simply an invention conceived and formed in Moscow as a pan-Arab club to wield against Israel to beat Israel into submission and eventually to replace Israel with a Palestinian state only to have it then divided between Syria, Egypt and Jordan. They are aware that the Palestinians were brought into being and placed under Yasser Arafat who is an Egyptian and if one traces the family names of the Palestinian leadership over the years one finds their family names indicate they originate from Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and even further astray throughout the Arab world and none were indigenous to the region. Western politicians are aware that the Palestinians have no relation to the Philistines, the Canaanites or any of the other peoples from the general area which is Israel, let alone having roots which date back nine-thousand years as claimed by Mahmoud Abbas.
The Europeans and the rest of the World knows that the truth is the idea of a Palestinian people was crystalized in 1964 with the founding of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) which had as it leadership Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas as his second in command. The PLO Charter sets as their goal the liberation of all of Palestine and defines this as all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with the exceptions of Gaza and the West Bank which are wholly owned lands of the Egyptians and Jordanians respectively. The formation of the PLO, the grandfather of the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, came a full three years before the 1967 Six Day War which saw Israel in a defensive war capture Gaza, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Soon after the Six Day War ended, the United Nations issued their demands for Israel to return most of the gained territory and Israel was to be permitted to retain those lands necessary for secure and defensible Israeli borders. The initial idea actually depicted Israel returning the Sinai Peninsula and retaining at the least the West Bank, which was actually Judea and Samaria in historical references. Israel made peace with Egypt and Jordan, with each relenting their occupied areas of Gaza and the West Bank. Egypt never actually formally claimed Gaza and Jordan annexation of the West Bank was recognized by a mere two nations, Britain and Pakistan. Western governments would reassess the amount of lands Israel was presumed to retreat from in such a manner as once Israel had given Egypt back the Sinai Peninsula, the area from which Israel was now expected to return land was redrawn to exclude the Sinai Peninsula as if Israel had never held the area, let alone returned it to Egyptian control. Carrying this concept to its final and only logical conclusion, should Israel give the Palestinians Gaza and the West Bank then those lands would be removed from the equation and after a few years when the Palestinians once again claim that all of Israel is occupied area then the pressure will come from Europe, the United Nations, the United States and the world to return further lands to the Palestinians. There may even be a demand for Israel to surrender the entirety of the Negev Desert allowing for the formation of national homelands for the Bedouin tribes. Just think about that one for a moment, a homeland for Bedouins who wander an area but do not settle anywhere, well, anywhere except Israel it seems. The end result appears to be taking all of Israel and leaving the Jews nationless, an idea which was first given credence by the Romans who dispersed the Jews from Judea and claimed to have destroyed the Jewish nation into perpetuity. This definition of the Jews as homeless and nationless was adopted by the Roman Christian Church (Later to become the Catholic Church) who added to the nationless degradation of Jews that this was G0d punishing the Jews for not becoming Christians who now replaced the Jews thus rendering the Jews to scorn and a future without a nation again in perpetuity. Perhaps this is the origin of the European inability to accept the existence of Israel as a state for the Jews; it undermines their own self-worth to recognize the Jewish nation. This also is something the Muslims got from their Christian neighbors and have adapted this definition of the Jews as well. It also seems that the Muslims have also adapted that idea as an eventuality for the Christians amongst others. Of course this progression is not possible as long as there is a Jewish Israel, thus a Jewish Israel must be resolved before history can proceed, or at least that appears to be the driving force behind much of this animosity, an animosity on a level not seen since Rome sacked Carthage, or since when Rome scattered the Judeans from Judea. Somehow we are now told that Judea was never Jewish and this makes sense exactly how? Rest on that thought.
