Israel is facing the most aggressively damaging and abrasively caustic administration in memory if not actuality. The revelation that if not for then Secretary of State Clinton’s inattention or impracticality of concealing the United States’ manipulative coercions, there would have been a massive and coordinated world-wide effort to disestablish Israel fortunately never happened. The still and continuing e-mail scandal, which many believe and even hope, will sink her second run for the Presidency, revealed a new chapter with Israel as the target. The revelation told of plans in the works for a massive coordinated effort through the wholly owned NGOs either under United States directive or through the European controlled NGOs or both along with overtly coordinated through State Department auspices and contacts a coordinated support around the world designed to inundate the media with calls and charges against Israel to force a peace on Israel through what were termed grand sacrifices and concessions both before and during the negotiations which were to present to Mahmoud Abbas an irresistible Israeli position which would give him everything and possibly anything demanded just to end the humiliations and accusatorial demonstrations within Israel, the Palestinian territories and around the world. The plan was for Arab Palestinians to present an Arab Spring style protest where massive numbers of Arab women would protest at a set location publically accessible for the media to cover and with only women and their young children and no Arab Palestinian men as they would not have the patience and would resort to violence allowing for Israel to then disperse the demonstrators using force of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) or border patrol and police thus ending the demonstrations before they could have their desired effect.
The ideas were presented by an e-mail from Thomas Pickering, a former US ambassador to Israel who also served as undersecretary of state for political affairs under former president Bill Clinton and well connected to the Clinton team. In his damning e-mail Pickering wrote “On the Palestinian side the male culture is to use force. Palestinian men will not for long patiently demonstrate — they will be inclined over time and much too soon to be frustrated and use force. Their male culture comes close to requiring it. If the Palestinians see men engaged they will jump in and the soldiers of the IDF will sooner or later use force,” he wrote. “This comes from several former senior Israeli military officers I have spoken with. The soldiers are fearful, nervous, outnumbered, insecure and brought up on a severe distrust of Palestinian males whom almost all of them have never spoken to except at roadblocks.” It was further reported that the use of females could “counteract” fears that the protests could become violent and thus place Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and his standing to rule in Ramallah in danger and result in losing the person so much time and efforts to build his image as a partner for peace despite evidence to the contrary, not all of which has been successfully thwarted. Citing the need for a kick-start in order to return to negotiations, Pickering continued, “They must develop growth and momentum, just like Tahrir Square, and attract more women to participate and thus gain world attention.” he continued expressing regret at finding, “Their leadership has shied away from this idea because they can’t control it; they too are afraid of being replaced by a Tahrir Square style action.”
Pickering continued by painting Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu as the impediment to peace talks and peace itself as he is satisfied with things as they are, deadlocked and further in Pickering’s mind’s warped views and continuing to expand the settlements in Judea and Samaria placing more realities on the ground all despite the Prime Minister acting as a stone wall blocking any and all building in the areas beyond the Green Line ever since the reelection of President Obama. Still, Pickering stated, “Netanyahu is not going to move for anything that the Palestinians can offer him which they can deliver,” he wrote. “He cannot deliver anything the Palestinians can accept without our help. He is much more satisfied with the status quo than with the risks of change. What will change the situation is a major effort to use non-violent protests and demonstrations to put peace back in the center of people’s aspirations as well as their thoughts,” Pickering added, “and use that to influence the political leadership. This is far from a sure thing, but far, in my humble view, from hopeless.” Laura Rosenberger, Secretary of State Clinton’s foreign policy adviser of those times told The Times of Israel late last Tuesday: “To be clear, Hillary Clinton never considered any plan of this sort, period.” This was but one of the numerous demands or plans offered in the most recent three-thousand of the e-mails released to the media.
These revelation come on top of the eviction of Jews from apartments they had legally purchased and possessed all the pertinent and required paperwork but it has been surmised that returning the properties to their former Arab owner became necessary due to intelligence that were the Jews to remain in the building that such would provide sufficient evidence to place the previous Arab owner who sold the apartments in danger of torture and probable death as he had broken the Arab Palestinian law against selling or renting properties to Jews punishable by death after appropriate torture such that others tempted to sell to Jews would be cowed and prevented. This is a disturbing policy, advisory or who knows what, which forces Israeli forces to remove any Jewish presence even if they own the apartments or other accommodations if the previous Arab owner becomes under threat by the Arab Palestinian Authority. Such a policy would provide for a great revenue enhancer as an Arab could sell a property and retain ownership without reimbursing the Jews. This would also serve as an enhanced mode of preventing any further spread of Jewish residence in the contested area beyond the Green Line thus keeping Prime Minister Netanyahu’s and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s silent promise to enforce President Obama’s settlement freeze. This stealth freeze has prevented Jews and only Jews from any construction even to include a small tool shed all the while allowing Arab illegal building of structures and other facts on the ground in Area C using European financing all in an effort to surround Bet El, East Jerusalem and any other Israeli community thus forcing their evacuation should any peace be formed using the Green Line that the Arabs are placing structure along its length.
All the stealthy compliance with an Obama directive, Arabs building illegally and expelling Jews from their homes, workplaces and shopping areas all in the name of peace yet these actions and any even punishingly severe which results in Israel and the Jews retaining even just sufficient lands for them to stand upon and not an inch more still would not produce that presumed illusive peace agreement. The reason, contrary to leftist and international busy-bodies’ strong belief of the requirements for peace and their other cases of wrong-think, is not at all to do with Israeli policies or concessions but due to Mahmoud Abbas and his precariously tenuous grip to power and its dependency on the IDF presence. Should Mahmoud Abbas ever agree to a peace with Israel it would leave him high and dry and oh-so-vulnerable to Hamas and other actors who actually have the support of the majority of Arab Palestinians in Judea and Samaria. The IDF commanders who know the realities which will never make it into Western media would tell the story of how their main task is to enforce policies which demand that they do everything required to keep Mahmoud Abbas and his kleptocracy in power and alive. It is for this reason that the Arab Palestinian intelligence gatherers report and share everything, and we mean everything, with their IDF counterparts emphasizing any information which will eat away at the activities of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, Iran and any other threats to Abbas thus using the IDF as the best possible Abbas protector service. Despite Abbas and his merry band of cutthroats being up to their collective necks in incitement, rewarding, incentivizing and supporting, in every conceivable manner, terrorism with intent of murdering and forcing Israel’s hand to defend even to the point of lethal force; the world and even Pope Francis call him a man of peace. Even having their hands forced to use up to the full force of the IDF to save the lives of civilians, any Arab deaths are then grist for the destruction mill which is the Western and world media in concert with leftist defamations calling for the erasure of all of the Jewish State as told in their unifying chant, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” Yet it is better attacks be made one by one rather than have Hamas or worse occupying the ledges of the Judean hills overlooking the heart of Israel that surrounds the north, south and east of Tel Aviv where Hamas and company could launch their rockets beyond the cusp down on seventy percent or more of Israel’s population, businesses, tourist destinations and its main, some might claim only, international airport, Ben Gurion, placing all flights in danger from surface to air missiles. Such a reality would result in Israel being forced to retake all of Judea and Samaria right up to the Jordan River abrogating any presumed peace which drove out any Israeli presence or force to prevent such a takeover.
This brings us to the choice Israel must make before things get so upside-down and precarious such as a revolt, a coup in which Hamas or the Islamic State or potentially both take over the Palestinian leadership in Judea and Samaria. Such an event would spell out a death sentence for Abbas, Erekat, Rabbo and the other leaders of Fatah. They would likely be tossed from the top of the highest buildings in all of Judea and Samaria as Hamas cleansed the “weakness” from their midst. Initially the IDF, Border Patrol and other Israeli armed forces would necessarily escape onto the larger communities which would offer sanctuary, a decent and organized supplemental armed force, many with defendable emplacements near the edge of their communities and most important, relative proximity which offers friendlier climes. From the higher ground which is often in or near the center of these communities the IDF could place spotters to act as an early warning system and the initial confrontations could easily be Arab Palestinians also seeking the protection from Hamas, Islamic State or whoever had taken power by force as the new power in Judea and Samaria might decide that more than just the leadership required being deleted (for lack of a better word). This is one of many potential alternative futures which could be realized in the far distant future or could be just beyond the cusp of today arriving with the morning sun tomorrow. Anyway one looks at the possible alternatives to Abbas the more one realized there are worse, but why has there never been any hope for a better future? Again, the reason is Abbas who has refused to hold election though two set dates giving him and the rest of the thieves running the Arab Palestinian Authority a third term without the inconveniences and risks of an election. This is the actual reason that the Arab Palestinians have not voted since 2005 and has nothing to do with Israel as the Authority holds the power over elections as their autonomous leadership and not Israel is responsible in any form or matter.
Israel faces an evil and dubious future for as long as the Arabs are under the Palestinian Authority or any other semiautonomous region as the propaganda continues to find more and more hate-filled minds who would believe any horrendous or heinous act by Israel or the IDF and other enforcement troops or the people (meaning Jews) simply due to the fact they believe Jews to be the most vile and evil sub-humans on the face of the Earth. The latest proof is close to beyond belief but it has been validated in the media where reports tell of seventy-one British physicians have petitioned to have the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) have their membership in the World Medical Association (WMA) revoked as Israeli doctors were carrying out “medical torture” on Palestinian patients. That any physician would contemplate or conceptualize such an accusation against the entire body of physicians of another nation has to be rooted somewhere beyond the cusp of reason. There can be no other explanation that such an accusation could be brought to the fore except as the result of latent, or not so latent, hatred and bias against the group due to their nation and whatever makes their nations separate from the body of nations in these physicians’ beliefs. Israeli physicians and medical staffs along with search and rescue teams and all forms of disaster relief time and again have not only been amongst, if not the first to arrive but also go into the remote places where some have yet to ever see any aid or other government or NGO assistance. These teams are often the first onto the scene after a disaster and are one of the few who have offered to assist the United States after disasters and have provided such relief in Haiti, Philippines and Nepal just to name a few. Then there is the Save a Child’s Heart where operations are performed and subsequent teams trained and hospitals given the equipment necessary to allow such operations to then be performed in a more timely manner. The SACH doctors give up the glamour for the goodness yet these physicians would also be injured by this proposed action by seventy-one British Physicians.
These physicians’ anti-Semitism along with the accompanying anti-Israel and anti-Zionism is so blatant that it simply oozes the bile-like slime over anything they touch. Their hatred may stem from many things but this type of hate comes from deep in a defective heart, and malfunctioning mind and a blackened soul. It is exactly this hatred which is also pervasive on the Arab Palestinian and Arab and Muslim worlds beyond which will never be satisfied while Israel exists at any size or location. It is not that these haters are serving the cause of the Palestinian Arabs but rather channeling their hatred for Jews into their political haughtiness and spitefulness choking their hearts that they display by such an act. May Hashem treat them more kindly when they return a blackened soul to His care than they will have acted towards the Jewish State because of its being Jewish. Israel must take control over all the lands from the River to the Sea. If there are a number of Arabs who wish to be under their own rule then an area which includes them be granted semiautonomous governance with elections held as the exact timing as called for in any founding documents and to assure their votes are heard and even permitted to be cast, these elections will be scheduled, held and monitored by Israel and international observers. Fair and open elections can work towards free and open passage for all into Israel proper and for Israelis to enter the semiautonomous zones, especially if it holds religious historical sites and prayers will be permitted by all in all areas of Israel. The semiautonomous zone and governance will still be held responsible for observing any Israeli laws which are a part of the Basic Laws or any Constitution if and when one is written and adopted. The Lands must still be defended from external influences or hostile attack, thus the IDF and Shin Bet will have ample access to the area of the autonomous governance as required. In exchange the Israelis will monitor their governance for any graft or signs of kleptocracy and will investigate such and hold the guilty responsible. The society within Israeli borders must be kept free, open and without any form of radicalized hatreds or violence as the rule of law will be the absolute one can count upon and equality before the law a guarantee.
