Here is the story which you will hear. Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, has gone before the United Nations Security Council to report on Hamas and to formally file a complaint against the intent by Hamas, a terrorist entity recognized by the United Nations and much of the world, to publically execute numerous criminals. This is unacceptable and illegal and Nickolay Mladenov is hopping mad and demands Hamas reconsider this drastic and dire intent. Further you will hear how these executions are being carried out without the approval of Mahmoud Abbas as required under the Palestinian Authority charter which requires that Abbas approve any execution, thus these executions are doubly illegal and ill-advised. You will be informed that Hamas has gone rogue and is intentionally ignoring Abbas who is recognized responsibile for Gaza under United Nations authority. Then there will be the commentary on how Abbas, in whose mouth butter would not melt, is just so civil and calm and level headed and would never resort to such extremes as Hamas. It will be stressed how Hamas and the Palestinian Authority do not cooperate or get along or have absolutely anything in common. There may or may not be included in any report, depending on the length they desire to go and whether this information will make Abbas look more sympathetic or pathetic in the eyes and minds of the readers of this news, that Abbas lost Gaza after being granted self-rule in Gaza by a cruel and merciless coup and by force of arms Hamas took over all of Gaza. This makes Abbas look weak but also engenders sympathy for him as well. Further, it may reopen the Israeli claim that should Abbas be granted full authority in Judea and Samaria it would result in Hamas taking these areas as well in much the same manner without the IDF keeping order and preventing such a coup.
Where will these complaints lead and what good are they. This is where it gets interesting and the area between what they will say and reality gets further blurred. The very first thing they will claim you must understand is that there is absolutely animus and no cooperation between the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) and Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas. Hamas and the PA are polar opposites and Hamas killed dozens of PA security soldiers in the coup where Hamas illegally took control of Gaza. Hamas has been provoking Israel which might renew the warfare between the two so Hamas is on notice. And then comes the big lie, Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister who just brought in Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beytenu Party into the coalition, is making the government more right leaning. Further is that Lieberman was given the Defense Minister position replacing the outgoing Moshe Ya’alon who was a force for moderation and a real moderate force in the government and would even take risks for peace. Lieberman could be characterized as the Israeli version of Donald Trump. It is always great if you can malign two people with a piece of superfluous information which has little if any validity or grounding in reality. Further, it will be intimated that Netanyahu had best make overtures and sacrifices for peace with Abbas for a number of reasons. First is that he would not want Hamas to come to power in Judea and Samaria (West Bank is the term they will use as the other actual names are too Jewish, especially Judea). This threat ignored the fact that making sacrifices for peace and granting Abbas rule over Gaza and removing the IDF completely from Gaza is exactly how Hamas came to power in Gaza. The reports will also omit that Hamas won the last elections for Arab Palestinian election for their Parliament and Abbas cancelled all further elections knowing that his position would also go to Hamas in any fair election or at best would remain with his Fatah Party but would elect Marwan Barghouti in his stead despite, or because of, Barghouti being imprisoned in Israel serving five life terms for his part in the murder by terror attack of five Jews out of the numerous murdered in his planned and carried out bombing and other terror strikes and not to mention the scores upon scores injured, many scarred and disabled for life.
Then, once Hamas has actually publically executed a small number of those whose executions are planned and while Hamas holds the remainder still subject for public execution, there will be European and United States State Department and President Obama all in coordination with the French initiative which will come from a French planned extravaganza presumably for restarting the “Peace Process” which have remained shattered from the last futile attempt. There will be no mention of the recognition and unity attempts between Hamas, Fatah, Abbas and the PA which forced the termination of the last initiatives. There will be no mention of all the offers for an Arab state that have been turned down since the Arab refusal to accept half the lands and share them with Israel from back in 1948 where instead Arab nations banded together to crush the newly formed Jewish State before they could assemble and arm a military force. The Arabs gained some territories, namely Gaza and Judea and Samaria, but failed to crush Israel who miraculously not only survived but also managed to keep parts of Jerusalem. This was made all the more miraculous when one realizes that the British left almost every fortified position of theirs fully armed and operational throughout much of what was to become Israel in Arab hands weighting the situation so far out of balance favoring the Arabs that it truly was a miracle that Israel managed to survive at all. Further, in their final few months the British attempted to find every “illegal” arms cache the Jews had been hiding using rifles and small arms they had manufactured and after confiscating these weapons and munitions such as bullets they were given to the Arab militias to use in the coming war against the Jews. In some ways this is more of the same reaching for any straw to destroy Israel.
The demands will come from Paris and be echoed at the United Nations headquarters in New York City and their Human Rights Council from Geneva as well as from numerous European governments and the European Union for Israel to immediately pull their IDF forces and all the “settlers” from beyond the Green Line and from East Jerusalem, an area where Israel had annexed into their capital city and granted a path to full citizenship to the Arabs residing within these areas, allowing for the formation of Palestine which is about to be formally recognized by the French, the European Union, the United Nations, a dozen or two European governments, Russia, China, almost every Arab and Muslim nation and almost every nation of the world with few exceptions making Israeli refusal tantamount to Israel declaring war on the world at large. This ultimatum is not only the world impinging on Israeli right to govern itself but also the world is reneging on every promise made at Oslo and numerous other peace efforts as the Israeli position was eroded on the international stage inch by infernal inch as the world continuously demanded concession after concession from Israel never demanding even a minimal compromise from Abbas all the while claiming it was Israel who would not sacrifice for peace despite the only side which ever sacrificed was Israel. There will be no mention that the BDS Movement (boycott, divestment, and sanction Israel) was invented and is run and financed out of Ramallah and the PA governance along with Fatah and the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization, another terror entity which is very similar in tactics and desires but is secular rather than religious based) with additional financial support from numerous Arab governments but disguised as a western grassroots pro-peace movement attempting to persuade Israel to return to the negotiating table and surrender totally to Abbas and the PA. They will claim that even if the Arabs were granted their right of return and took over Israel in an election due to sheer numbers that since Israel is now a multi-ethnic free nation with free speech, freedom of religion, free political actions, free and fair elections, freedom of the media and in every way an open society that the Jews would have nothing to fear should the Islamists take power as they would be restrained by Israeli law. Any bets on how fast Israeli law would become Sharia and every Jew rounded up and murdered where they stood? Still, there will be demands made for Israel to make a deal with Abbas before Hamas manages to replace him like Hamas could not replace him once Israel gives him rule over Judea and Samaria and pulls out completely just as was done in Gaza in August of 2005.
Then there will be the demands and counter points that Abbas is the only sane person and thus Israel must deal with him. Israel need choose immediately between Abbas and the PA or Hamas and it will be stressed how the two entities are at odds and would never cooperate even to kill every Israeli likely to include a large segment of the Arab population as they are viewed as apostates for remaining in, living in, voting in, working in, enjoying citizenship in, and enjoying every freedom in Israel and having more rights than any Arab has in any Arab nation while a full citizen of Israel. Another recent event that will also not be making these news reports is the story where “Israel intercepts weapons transfer from Judea to Gaza Strip”< the very day that Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, has gone before the United Nations Security Council to report on the planned Hamas public executions setting in motion the next pressure Israel to surrender just a little more campaign to follow.
The reality is that Abbas and Hamas are playing good terrorist-bad terrorist against Israel with a full supporting cast of thousands if not millions. There has been an entire industry built up around forcing Israel to ever continuously surrender piece by piece to the Arabs. These nations could not care one whit about the conditions and freedoms for the Arabs because if they cared one shred there would have been no prolonged war destroying Syria. If anybody honestly cared about Arabs there would have been troops safeguarding Sunni from Shia and Shia from Sunni and the Kurds and Druze from the rest of Islam and lastly protections for the Sufi Muslims. The truth is that the only reason that there are any being concerned with the Palestinians is because they are the bludgeon with which the world will erase what they see as their largest of all errors, allowing the Jews, the Hebrews, returning and reclaiming their ancestral lands and from which to set up a nation which will lead the world in acts of moral fortitude and live as an example and a light unto the nations of the world. No, no, no, no, no, the world does not want to have any return of Israel as she has always been and will always be, the people who brought morality and freedom and the vital worth of the human being into the world starting with Abraham not sacrificing his son Isaac and being told that human sacrifice was immoral and unacceptable before Hashem. From that beginning began the greatest moral play the world had ever known and through the Hebrews and their relations with the Almighty, Hashem gave the world the Ten Commandments and a moral code upon which much of human civilization rests. The world has realized they have brought to fruition another of the prophetic promises that the Children of Israel would return home after near two thousand years of living at the whim and fancy of every world leader throughout human history. They became no longer Hebrews with a land to tend and preserve according to their covenant with Hashem, a covenant they disregarded with the most dire and severely tortuous punishments which would have destroyed a normal people. The Hebrews now cast to the winds by the Roman Empire and spread across the globe were rejected by nearly every nation in which they resided and were often hunted down, burned at the stake as heretics against the chosen religion of the lands in which they would reside, forced to convert or die practicing their religion in quiet solitude secretively, were imprisoned for learning Hebrew with which to read their holy Torah. The Jews became a people who were no longer bound by a land as all others remained a nation but instead were a nation bound by their law, Torah, and a longing that it would be next year in Jerusalem. The Jews are returning to their lands but still the world tries to renege on the promise of inviolable lands from the Jordan River all the lands to the Mediterranean Sea, a mere 22% of the promised Mandate exchanging the other 78% for the right to remain in that 22% which was placed as a guarantee by the British Crown, the League of Nations and by the United Nations in their Article 80 of the United Nations Charter.
The world is currently using Hamas to force Israeli hands into making further acts of contrition and sacrifices for a peace which Abbas cannot provide even had he so desired as he has built his right to office on the total destruction of Israel and the founding of Palestine only on the graves of the Jews and others in Israel. There is little which separates Abbas from Hamas. While Hamas is Islamist religious fanaticism, Fatah and thus the PA are nationalist Islamic fanaticism. They are as different as International Socialism and National Socialism and despite the European cleaving to the supposed vast difference between Fascism and Communism, they are in fact simply two forms of the same socialism with the sole difference being one portends to be the classless society ruled by the world at large while the other believes in a classless society sworn in its allegiance to the state with the power to transcend to ruling the world instead of their little corner which they were unfairly restricted. Either way you end up with a classless world society and the sole difference is who gets to be in the government and thus steal everything not nailed down from the classless people beneath their feet. The same is true of the two forces, Hamas in Gaza and Abbas in Judea and Samaria. The reality is that as soon as the PA can have the world force Israel to surrender all the lands east of the Green Line including East Jerusalem, Hamas will forcibly take over all of Judea and Samaria from Abbas who will immediately fortify himself in East Jerusalem, the reason here is why he insists that East Jerusalem be his capital city, and demand IDF protection before Hamas takes over East Jerusalem as well. Then, with East Jerusalem secured by the IDF from Hamas and with the entirety of former PA lands in Hamas’s hold, the terror war of rockets throughout Israel will soon begin. In the meantime, Abbas will begin agitating that it is completely unfair that he was cheated from representing the Arab Palestinians who are now languishing under Hamas rule. Well we will have to give him that one as that is true not that life under the PA is that much better. Now Abbas will start to claim that he is the rightful leader of the Arab population inside of Israel and will start demanding a state with guaranteed exchanges of Arab populations through Israel as if they do not have the right to travel from one Arab village to the next currently. There will be the next BDS and demands Israel forfeit lands to this new Arab entity which has been suppressed. The Europeans will immediately hold emergency sessions to recognize Abbas and his claim to be the true leader of Israeli Arabs. There will be demands that Israel allow parallel governing giving Abbas equal power to the Israeli Prime Minister and that can only end one way, a final war for the right to all the lands between the River and the Sea. That will be a horrific day in the history of Arab and Jew alike and neither will be the winner as both will lose and lose badly. The end result will depend on whether the Arab world is in any shape to come and join in the struggle to destroy the Jewish State. With sufficient support and all these places where troops can be positioned throughout Israel herself, there will be slaughters upon slaughters until the IDF takes control of the lands within the Green Line with the possible loss of Jerusalem initially. If the IDF does succeed in gaining their foothold on the heart and coast of Israel, then expect Israel to ignore the admonitions and condemnations which will assuredly be leveled against her and simply take that which is rightfully belonging to the Jewish State, the Jordan River to the Sea Israel will finally be free. Should the Arab world jump to support Hamas, as the PA will have ceased as an entity and their relations as the front group for Hamas will finally be revealed and the lies will finally be out in the open. That is where this latest good terrorist-bad terrorist is heading and Hamas are bad and Abbas is good, or is it Abbas is bad and Hamas is, no, that…
