This past week who did United States Secretary of State John Kerry decry as responsible for the violence which has been claiming victims across Israel? He blamed the ruthless stabbings, vehicular assaults, rock throwing, firebombing and other violence on the fact that, according to Secretary Kerry, Israeli construction beyond the Green Line in what the world deems to be settlements. There was one miniscule flaw in Secretary Kerry’s reasoning in that Israel has succumbed to the demands from the administration of President Obama and has not constructed even a patio, deck, garage or balcony since March 31, 2009, when Prime Minister Netanyahu was elected and was met upon taking office by an in place building freeze and demands by United States President Obama to continue with the building freeze indefinitely. The presumption made by the United States Secretary of State was the increased population which he assumed had to be solely due to more residences and people moving into the contested areas and it never occurred to him that the growth was due to families growing and children marrying and starting their families and all done within the houses and apartments existing and no new construction despite the inconveniences such restrictions have caused. What many may find surprising just as the State Department of the United States, many of the nations in Europe and the European Union especially the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini as well as the United Nations is that there has been no building allowed outside the Green Line though companies have been permitted to make bids for tenders should such construction ever be resumed and given the go ahead by the Prime Minister’s Office which has stood astride the path to new construction impeding every opportunity.
Secretary Kerry should not have been judged too harshly as United Nations Secretary General also could not pass up an opportunity to lay the blame for the current Third Intifada on Israel equally if not more so than the Arab Palestinians of their governing bodies. The instigations from Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stoking the fires of violence by relying on the same rallying cry used by the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al-Husseini claiming that the Jews were desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque, endangering the structure of the al-Aqsa Mosque with destruction and one semi-original claim of Jews trampling the al-Aqsa Mosque with their “filthy feet” as depicted in the video below. It should be noted by Christians that Mahmoud Abbas also claims that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in addition to the al-Aqsa Mosque belong to the Arabs of the PA which was formed from the political party Fatah which was the political identity formed to take the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) from its roots as an Islamic terrorist organization and launder it clean in order to allow for the Oslo Accords to be received by the world as respectable and free of its Islamic terrorist history and to represent Yasser Arafat as the political leader of a national liberation movement separating his new role from his historic past as the father of airplane hijacking, terrorist extraordinaire and leader of a terrorist groups which had under his direct authority and often direct orders murdered numerous Israelis, Americans and Europeans and with the able assistance and facilitation by his second in command Mahmoud Abbas planned, armed, financed and executed the facilitation of Black September special operations subgroup of the PLO in conducting the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics Games hostage taking and murders of the Israeli Olympic Team in which most of the Israeli Olympic Team including coaches and athletes were murdered.

The story seldom changes when it comes to Israel and the Middle East. During the First Intifada which was largely facilitated by one of the early release of terrorists from Israeli jails as a humanitarian gesture. What a humanitarian gesture which cost an undetermined number of lives between the First Intifada, the terrorism which making peace and establishing an Arab state, the twenty-second such state, would alleviate the frustration and thus the Oslo Accords were born. Then came more prisoner releases in order to facilitate peace and to give Yasser Arafat reasons he could present to the Arab Muslim world making his agreement to speak peace with the Israelis more palatable which would bring the peace Israel had been promised was right around the corner if only this sacrifice was made. That led to other facilitating moves demanded from Israel while the terror continued to rise but still Israel was arm-twisted into granting more prisoner releases which led to Yasser Arafat walking from the Paris talks which soon led to the Second Intifada, which was named appropriately the Oslo War, where Israelis were murdered from shootings, stabbings, rock throwing and homicidal suicide bombers numbering well over one-thousand Israelis murdered and many times that injured. The Second Intifada did not come to a close until Israel was forced to assault the entirety of Judea and Samaria in order to quell the continuous violence. It was during this intervention that the Jenin slaughter and destruction of the entire town presumably took place. The truth of this presumed slaughter was such a far cry from what the story told by the media was that it was hard to understand how the media could have gotten the story that wrong. The media could not help but to use the wildest casualty and reports of destruction at the Jenin refugee camps and surrounding areas. Even after the United Nations inspection and research backed virtually every statistic and description of events as stated by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) own report on the confrontations and the resultant damage, destruction and casualty counts, the media preferred to stick with the Palestinian lie of a massacre and that trope has been referred to far too often as proof of Israeli wrongdoing that the Massacre at Jenin Refugee Camp has joined the other Blood Libels against the Jews right next to their threats to harm or destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque. The al-Aqsa Mosque libel is easy to understand its origins, it is exactly how the Arab Palestinians would act towards Jewish holy sites and have in the past thus the Jews must be as bloodthirsty, murderous and destructive to everything which does not compliment Judaism or poses a perceived threat to Judaism, whether real or imagined and it is how Jewish holy sites were treated when half of Jerusalem was under Jordanian control and every Synagogue was desecrated and then destroyed during those seventeen years before June of 1967 when Israel retook all of Jerusalem.
Currently the violence had been initiated by the Arabs, both those from the contested areas and others who hold Israeli identification cards and are considered Israelis. The attacks by Arab citizen of Israel against Jews of Israel are as close as Israel comes to instigating the violence. But again we are hearing that other blood libel and false logic that more of the attackers have been killed than Israelis as if any confrontation is supposed to have equal numbers dead on each side regardless of all other conditions and thus not enough Jews have died. My supposition is that if the numbers were reversed and five times or even fifty times the number of Arabs killed Jews the media would still list every act as if Israel was to blame but the casualty disparity would be shrugged off as just one of those events which happen in war. But since the Jews protecting themselves and the propensity to charge law enforcement or IDF personnel when they have been neutralized as a threat of violence against civilians and then rush with their knife bared to fulfill their bloodlust the world is surprised that they were often shot before they could do any further harm, but this is evil as their desire is only to murder as many Jews as possible until killed, they make this claim boldly and then Israel is blamed for their death wish. This is the reality Israel faces on the world’s stage, the impossibility to satisfy the hatred which has as its roots the origins of the conflict between monotheism and poly-theism and idolatry.
The introduction of a singular Deity, Hashem, turned the priesthood on its head compared to the rest of society where the population was kept under control by their fear of being identified as the one the gods demanded for sacrifice and this empowerment of the priestly class was difficult for them to surrender. Instead they placed greater impositions and tortures upon their societies and blamed all their perversions on the Jews and incited against them. Eventually the pagan threat subsided leading to yet another next challenge which came to be known as replacement theology by which the Jews are cast into perpetual deals with the devil and perverting the truth of the Bible, which explained partially the need to rewrite all of the Old Testament such that it fit the New Testament which was itself supplanted by Islam. Islam has also become a tool in the hands of their clerics who have cherry-picked the verses in the Quran and claimed them superior to the more peaceful and accommodating verses in the Quran. There will be those who will trace the bloodlust being implemented against the Jews is deserved as they had forsaken G0d which is why miseries after miseries were heaped upon the Jews through the millennia. First it was those who were threatened by the introduction of Hashem, a loving and nurturing Deity which meant mankind nothing but progress and a life filled with kindness and culpability for your actions, almost a direct opposite to the world vision of fatalism where your every act was planned and set in motion at the moment of birth and this the original sin which while lain on every man, it was heaped in immeasurable quantities on the Jews.
The worst crime the Jewish People could ever commit to society is for their exile to have an ending date which could be used to have the Jewish People to return to being the apple in Hashem’s eyes and their covenant still valid and the predictions of the early clerics was of a horrifically long period spent wandering the globe belonging only to their Torah and each other. The Jews returning to Eretz Yisroel and making Jerusalem as a whole their capital city is simply too much of prophecy being realized for other religious people to take so instead they attempt to murder the messengers as Hashem is beyond their reach and cannot be harmed by mere mortal man. It is the attempt to drive the Jews back into the Diaspora once again making them helpless and living at the kindnesses of their presumed betters. This explains the fierce anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel actions behind much of the world who have grown accustom to blaming the Jew and not receiving any resistance. Well, resistance is here and its name is Israel and you had best get used to their existence as it is the final time such will be required of mankind. The proud and self-sufficient Jews scares any of those whose entire career has been spent promoting or believing the Jew had to be scorned as it was apparent to those so willfully blind that the Jew suffered and had no homeland of their own was a result of their manifested sins effecting their plight in the world. The founding and survival of Israel, especially those acts which appear to be miraculous, of which there have been plenty, as this upsets their entire theories which made their religion ascendant and superseding Judaism as the Jews and thus their religion had been rejected by Hashem. The return to Israel made those assumptions into the lies they have always been, but now the drive is to destroy Israel even if by doing so the rest of the world will be destroyed in the process. Fighting Israel is like fighting against Hashem and will prove completely useless waste of human energy and endeavor. The Jews know there will be no success in undoing a miracle in progress as Hashem has infinite power and total control over the effects in this world just as in the next. Mankind need realized that the Jews cannot be controlled or overthrown as they have returned to their place in the lands of Hashem. But fighting the Jew is the closest many who oppose Israel do so out of their desire to bring Hashem into their definition as to what is right and correct. This is the reality Israel faces and just as these forces and the men powering them are determined to wipe the Chosen of Hashem from their place in Jerusalem and thus by inference have also proven Hashem to be a liar and thus the need for others in the oath to call for Hashem, in Judaism the person themselves can reach a point and converse with Hashem though answers are often difficult in coming and often require mankind take his proper assigned place and be content with such conditions. Lastly, pay attention to removing the tree sized splinter in your eye before attempting to place blame on the Jews just as history has recorded. Some things almost never change, nor does their evil inclination, with their minds enslaved and placing structure which places others, the officials with titles to justify their obstructions, placed between the people and Hashem, simply because where would the churches be without their minions to unleash upon an unjustified victims who are the people themselves, and yet the people have grown comfortable with this as well as the inherent evils. When will the people rebel against these deceivers is unknown to mere mortals, we just keep faith that each and every day brings us closer to that reward but only if we are reaching it for the correct reason.
