Israel has a slew of little problems which all come from European broken promises and Islamic hatred. One might even make the claim that Israel had two problems and both could be solved if promises were kept and hatreds were parked and the rest of the world simply attempted to tend to their problems. Let us take a quick look at a few of the craziest demands made of Israel by the world’s busy bodies such as the European Union and numerous European governments, NGOs, oligarchs and politicians, people and organizations feeding on hatred and the driving desire to destroy the Jewish State and its Jews knowing that such would all but destroy the Jewish faith leaving a few scattered islands of Orthodox Jews living always nervously waiting for the authorities thumb to try and crush the life from their communities. The latest attempt to crush a small Jewish community came in Yemen where seventeen Yemenite Jews were rescued from the deadly civil war that has taken over their country as they were facing a threat of death or conversion and a daring rescue was arranged and they are safely in Israel with an absolutely immaculate 800-year-old Torah scroll (see below) and their Rabbi Saliman Dahari who arrived with his parents and his wife. Our deepest thanks to the United States State Department for making the initial snatch taking these refugees to a neutral nation and from there they were eventually taken to Israel. They were rescued in a complicated operation, which was conducted by the Jewish Agency and these Jewish refugees need not worry about what nation in the world might grant them asylum as Israel will go one better, they became Israeli citizens as soon as they landed and now they need pile through the paperwork as the bureaucrats must have their jobs and need to justify their salaries.
This has been the policy of Israel for almost seventy years and would have been the provisional Zionist Congress except the British overseeing their Mandate refused to permit Jews to flee Europe and escape the Nazi death camps which was also the British policy and the United States which refused to allow refugees attempting to escape Europe just as they refused to bomb the railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz but instead bombed the tracks at a junction five miles away cutting the town from the trains while still allowing their access to Auschwitz and Birkenau, the death camp attached to the labor camp. General Eisenhower insisted that the liberated camps be heavily documented with pictures, lots of pictures, because he said mankind must never forget this monstrosity and if we do not document it they most surely will. These are presumably Israeli allies who have Israel’s back in any situation.
Let’s take a quick look at these great allies; those who won World War II and some also were on the winning side in World War I. After granting the British control over Mandate Lands with which they were to establish a Jewish State, they immediately divided it giving it to the Arabs and the Hashemite King who had been replaced as the ruler of Mecca and Medina by the Saudi Royal Family. The British had promised, well, Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) promised lands to the Hashemites and their ruler and they received all of the lands east of the Jordan River up to and bordering Iraq in the east, Syria in the north, Saudi Arabia in the south and the Jordan River in the west. The area which was the British Mandate west of the Jordan River had been ruled over by empire after empire with none making any city within the geographical area since Judea broke free from Greek rule making Jerusalem their Capital City. Previous to this state, Judea had survived after the Ten Tribes of Israel were conquered by the Assyrians. Eventually Judea fell but still no conqueror ever made their capital city within the lands which had made up Israel and Judea.
Modern Israel and the initial influx of Jews who drained swamps, constructed water works for irrigation, constructed roads, established commerce and manufacturing was the impetus for Arabs, Muslims and Christians from as far as Yemen, Algeria, Turkey as well as adjacent French Mandate lands, Syria, Jordan (or Transjordan), Saudi Arabia, Iran and even Afghanistan. There has been a Jewish population in Jerusalem consistently from before the Roman Empire swept through, before Alexander the Great, before Assyria and even before Persia engaged Greece and before Babylon. Jerusalem was the Capital city since King David conquered the great walled city and remained under Jewish rule for over seven-hundred-fifty years with the First Temple constructed by King Solomon as King David was forbidden as he had far too much blood on his hands. We need to realize that Buddha was born either in 563 BCE or c. 480 BCE, Confucius was born 551 BCE and the Second Temple was built in between 515 BCE or 550 BCE as the Jews go back a large amount earlier.
The map of ancient Israel covers all of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea as well as the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee and down the West Bank of the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. Israel is today being reasonable in claiming the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with the Golan Heights and as far as the eastern bank of the Sea of Galilee, that can be negotiated with Jordan. As for the Arabs who are demanding their own nation, may we suggest somewhere in central region of what used to be Syria. If they choose they could seek residence in Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria or wherever they have relatives residing as it could be used as a reattachment with their family or tribal groups. If they would prefer attempting to have any success in Europe, Israel would wish them well. The United States or South America might provide them new homes. The Jews for the first twenty years of Israeli existence the refugees continued in a steady stream sometimes seemingly overflowing with refugees thrown from their lands without being allowed to take more than they could reasonably carry. They received no payment for any property such as homes, businesses, inventory, artwork, jewelry and the list seems endless. Well over two-million Jewish refugees have been absorbed by Israel after they were driven from their lands and these refugees are far from the only refugees as Israel has absorbed displaced Christians and Baha’i from the Muslim world. Israel has more recently gone and saved threatened Jews from Yemen to Morocco and from Russia to the Philippines and absorbed the hundreds of thousands of Jews returning home every decade.
The Ethiopian, Menashe, Yemeni and other Jews throughout Asia, North Africa and the Middle East are still being brought home all too often just before they would have been executed or made to convert to Islam. There are soon to be waves of additional Jews from Europe as anger and anti-Semitic feelings grow. The same can be seen in the streets of the United States and across the college and university grounds and classrooms in the United States and Canada. Below is the scene just outside the AIPAC Convention in Washington D.C. where many of the attendees were assaulted by a vicious anti-Israel and anti-Semitic crowd. Play the video and listen to many of the calls for killing the young man who the police managed to close upon and escort him into the building. These attacks were all too common during the convention and are simply the next step which follows the anti-Zionist and anti-Israel and BDS Movement. This is in Washington DC, the Capital City of the United States, this week, but we should not be surprised.
Israel’s population is increasing and will continue to as the Jews in the Western World start coming under ever increasing pressures. Europe is already lost as the European Union and many European leftist governments are buying land under false pretenses and building homes and giving them to Arab Muslims all across Area C which the Oslo Accords forbids such. If an Israel expanded a flowerbox the European Union, much of Scandinavia, Paris and the rest of France, the United Nations, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and President Obama would all have catatonic apoplexy all of them making a federal case with Israeli ambassadors called to explain and Prime Minister Netanyahu hearing demands that he condemn such a reprehensible act. Meanwhile the population continued to grow and the area from Haifa to Ashkelon is well crowded area with the Tel Aviv suburbs stacked with apartment buildings, many well over fifteen stories. Kfar Saba and Netanya are simply suburbs of Tel Aviv and these residential and business buildings reach all the way to the Judean Hills and then climb right on up them spreading across the Green Line.
All building to add to these suburbs has been frozen for the three and a half years since President Obama won reelection. You might call it Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reelection present to President Obama who pocketed the surrender and has raised the stakes claiming he will not veto the French Initiative and he has John Kerry pressuring the new French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault to retract his cancellation of the former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and restate the full previous draft which would have made any failure by Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to automatically inforce a Palestinian State with the 1949 Armistice Lines as the border under Chapter Seven of the United Nations Security Council’s Charter which would allow for military force to be applied to enforce and commit a determination by the Security Council. This would allow for Iran, North Korea, France, Britain, Egypt, and any other military with the full backing of the United States and also Russia, China, Pakistan and whoever else decides to join the enforcement coalition. Israel has reached peace agreements with Jordan and Egypt but the world insists that such treaties do not mean that Israel gets to keep the lands she liberated from nineteen years of occupation, oh no, Israel must be forced back to borders which are next to impossible to defend so that the Islamic forces can attempt once again to genocidally eradicate Israel. Apparently the Western World, or at least President Obama and possibly the European Union, decide that they desire a preemptive reason to stomp Israel into the ground and the Security Council can provide just such an order. Perhaps this is the legacy President Obama desires for himself. He probably believes that attempting to destroy Israel will be a plus on his resume to become the next Secretary General of the United Nations. Imagine Secretary General Obama wielding power beyond his wildest dreams able to call up Russian, Chinese, American, and European militaries to enforce his ideals on the rest of the planet. About the only addition one might add would be, “Would you like fries with your order?”
