Secretary of State Kerry gave a blatantly erroneous, magnificently ignorant, critical targeting of a phantom problem and deliberately dishonest assessment of the driving motivation behind the current Arab violence against Israelis by stating publically placing the administrations bias plainly within the view of the media and those desirous of demonizing Israel at any cost when he claimed the Arabs were driven to violent distraction by the continued increase in Israeli building beyond the Green Line in the so-called settlements. Secretary of State Kerry was either deliberately fabricating out of the thin air the accusation that Israel has even permitted the construction of a deck or a porch, let alone any additional homes, apartments or other construction in the areas beyond the Green Line as Prime Minister Netanyahu has enforced meticulously the desired building freeze which President Obama demanded after his reelection as the necessary Israeli contribution if there were to be any hopes for reaching an eventual peace drawing onto the map of the Middle East a second state for Arabs to reside alongside Israel sharing in peace between the two people and mutually enforced security for both states between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea. This has been the chimerical summation which has been presented by the Obama administration despite their having full knowledge that such building had been terminated as demanded and Mahmoud Abbas refused to even meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu back in the first year of Obama’s Presidency and all construction has been suspended since President Obama’s reelection starting with his 2009 inauguration.
Meanwhile, the entire brain-trust employed by President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and the rest of the advisors have all apparently neglected a few not so insignificant facts about Mahmoud Abbas actions, intents, recent statements and also his multifaceted program of incitement to violence and rewarding that selfsame violence. Mahmoud Abbas over the past twelve months has announced the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and the establishment of Palestine claiming that he would be its titular head of state, made an alliance which merged Hamas with the PLO and thus his construct of Palestine, declared Jerusalem as the Capital City solely of his constructed state denying it as the Israeli Capital City and theoretically annexing all of west Jerusalem, declared the Oslo Accords dead and removing his constructs, all of them, from its limitations and its requirements on the Arab entities, worked with numerous European governments to establish Arab homes and communities in Area C which was reserved for Israel and forbidden to Arab construction, and began the Third Intifada which has also been called the Stabbing Intifada with an all-out campaign of incitement using all forms of media including but not limited to Facebook, multiple social media formats, radio, television, financial rewards, recent increase in honoring terrorists from the prior Intifadas, school lessons of incitement, releasing popular songs such as “Stab, Stab,” “Stab the Zionist and say God is great,” “Let the knives stab your enemy,” “Say hello to being a martyr,” and “Run Over, Run Over the Settler,” examples as depicted in the videos below.
But why allow some insignificant item such as the truth and reality impinge on your preconceived notions that the real problem comes from the overcrowding within many family homes and apartments in the Jewish cities and towns where as their children have married and had children since January 2009 when President Obama was reelected and sworn into office and the Israeli government of Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed to freeze all building beyond the Green Line causing this ever increasing overcrowding in many family homes as they are making do with empty promises that eventually the tenders which have been bid upon but frozen at that point so as to keep Netanyahu’s promise to Obama and Kerry yet they tend to scream foul every time bids for tenders are collected and a contract rewarded for if and when the building freeze is ever lifted. The building by Israel are the least damaging threat to peace and the formation of a permanent peace and that is where we need to address the reality and from that derive an honest and straightforward assessment of the entire situation from all aspects and not just seeking to support a decided view which condemns and vilifies Israel and through that the Jews in general. The murderous violence perpetrated by the Arabs, both Israeli citizens and members of terror groups Fatah, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Hamas and rumored to include Islamic State sent individuals to join in murdering Israelis with the hope of killing Jews. Below is a picture of the investigation and cleansing of the scene where an Israeli soldier and three others in Tel Aviv on October 8, 2015. Another difference between the Arabs treating of a place where one has been injured and the treatment by Israel in similar instances is the Arabs loiter and make a point to bring every reporter, camera and media to cover the situation for maximum coverage in Europe and the rest of the Western World while in Israel the family and victims are respected and the site investigated and then immediately cleansed as seen in picture below.
Since the introduction of the Oslo Accords in September of 1993 there has been one overriding occurrence which has been ignored by the United Nations, the European Union, and a host of leaders in Europe, the United States, the developed world and met with various shades of glee by the Arab and Muslim worlds. Every time when any leader of the United Nations, United States, the Quartet or the European Union and her member states decided to push for peace talks the program was sickenly the same story, Israel, Israel, Israel and Israel was forced to make dangerous concessions time after time while the Arabs were either given a free ride or were required to act nice. When the talks are resumed the Arab leaders starting with Yasser Arafat (master terrorist and inventor of plane hijacking, homicidal suicide bombers and numerous other forms of terror) and later taken to the present day by Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas simply attended the negotiations in a simple means to try and force the maximalist positions they could extract from the Israeli side before making a large disturbance denouncing any claims and statements that they had made even a single promise while assuring that the mediators were sure to record every compromise which were even discussed for Israel to make. This was the modus-operandi for every negotiation which was conducted until Israel had been backed to her last stand without compromising away vital requirements. Israel was convinced to make what proved to be her absolute greatest sacrifice by President George W. Bush, who was regarded as being Israel’s greatest friend to ever sit in the White House, all of Gaza and removing eight-thousand Israeli citizens as well as exhuming every Jewish grave for reinterring within Israel while also attempting to assist the transplanted Israelis after they lost their homes and often their businesses and everything they had owned suddenly in August, 2005. Even now there are those Israeli citizens turned refugees have yet to be repatriated and made whole and productive and some may never recover. The surrendered lands of Gaza were lost soon thereafter negating any promises made by the administration of George W. Bush and especially Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as Hamas took over Gaza after a few days of fighting as Abbas’s forces just had no fight within folding over June 10–15, 2007. All told, the Oslo Accords have cost Israel thousands upon thousands of lives lost and hundreds times that in lives ruined or inalterably torn asunder.
The reality as to why there has been no compromise reached has been due to the Arab leadership and their more fanatical Islamists demanding the complete eradication of the Jewish State of Israel. Abbas has stated that he desires his state of Palestine and the return of five-million Arabs into Israel making the Jews a minority placed into Dhimmitude all but enslaved to their Islamic “betters” and relegated to some hellish existence knowing that at any moment and the whim of any of their keepers they would be given the choice of conversion or death. This is the truth of the situation as the Israelis, and especially the Jews and all the people who are of non-Islamic religions also forced into the same fate. Eventually the Muslims who are of any sect other than the majority sect would also be forced into the same predicament. For some reason such a deal does not appeal to the Israeli Jews and many other minorities even including Muslims from other than the Sunni belief structures such as mainly Shiites. With the Oslo Accords now trashed by Abbas’s Fatah and Hamas united such that they are both now simply another group waiting for the correct time and situations to join the Islamic State, something not all that removed from Hamas in attitude and desires when facing the greater world. The reality in the Middle East and across North Africa (MENA) is that unless the Islamic State is defanged and made to appear powerless and ineffective against any other power, especially a non-Muslim power, they will continue to grow and eventually take over every last terror groups and Islamist Sharia State leaving only the Wahabbists of Saudi Arabia, the Shia of Iran and Israel left to oppose this self-anointed Caliphate which will have spread across the near and far reaches of MENA. Should the declarations of being the next Caliphate not be opposed by the free world while these forces of the Islamic State are simply a relatively small area when compared to their goals, then they will eventually grow and take command of the oil fields of Saudi, Kuwaiti, and other GCC oilfields and potentially also the oilfields of Iran followed by the Iranian nuclear weapons production sites and their scientists and knowledge. This would be catastrophic and by forcing Israel into weakness the world is simply tempting just such a fate. Israel as the Jewish State is the lynchpin which keeps a control over the forces of MENA breaking out full strength into Europe as Israel would pose a very credible military force posing too great a threat to permit to remain as a threat against the rear and hindering supply-lines. This is the crucial role played by Israel which both the United States and Europe appear willing to play without going forward. The lack of recognizing the crucial role Israel plays is why President Obama had been so cavalier regarding Israel willing to sacrifice Israel today. Islam is preparing to pose a threat directly into the heart of Europe and an anti-Semitic disease once again infecting many in Europe on a scale not witnessed since the beginning of World War II. This has been why many rumors have been floating about the Internet with claims of knowledge as to the sides being drawn bringing forth claims of the immediate start to World War III. Israel has been informed how each President had supported her more than all the previous administrations which have unfortunately proven to be false. Let us hope that Israel can survive the remainder of President Obama, his time in office and the mischief he could still be the cause.
