Maybe the greatest threat is Israel when considering it is at the base of numerous problems according to some reports. This problem is the lack of peace between Israel and the Palestinians and Israel being at odds with so many of their neighbors in the Middle East and into Northern Africa. Further, there exists animosity between Israel and much of Europe and numerous NGO’s and the source of protests around the world. Judging from the noise from the echo chambers due to complaints accusing Israel, perhaps we have a real problem which requires intervention to force peace on Israel and her neighbors as well as the Palestinians. So, let us look at the situation with Israel and analyze exactly how the world can solve all the aspects of these problems. Shall we proceed to examine the lack of peace and what can be done?
One nation which Israel still has a state of war existing is Syria. Currently there is no real central power in Syria which can be negotiated with or has uncontested recognition as the central power and governing authority. The former recognized government of Bashir al Assad is currently forced to take shelter along the western coastal area where his Alawite tribes reside and where the Russians have use of naval facilities which provide Russia with warm water ports on the Mediterranean Sea. There are Kurdish Militias who are in control over the north and north eastern areas of Syria and are coordinating with the Kurdish Militias controlling northern areas in Iraq. Sunni terrorist groups such as al-Nusra and former al-Qaeda linked groups in control of large areas in central Syria. There are Druze tribes in the eastern and southern mountain areas. Israel controls the Golan Heights won during the Six Day War and held despite attacks from Syria during the Yom Kippur War and annexed these lands, as previous to Israel taking these heights there had been regular shelling of farmers as well as often having snipers practicing their skills shooting farmers and other Israelis without any warning almost as sport. Finally, the Islamic State, which has proven to be proud of their horrific and gruesome methods, has executed and captured individuals including civilians and numerous captives taken from the civilian populations in the areas their control often charging them with insult of Islam, Allah or other laws according to the Islamic State definitions of Sharia and observance of Islam. There is no means of reaching any peace with Syria until there is peace in Syria.
In Israel’s favor is that two adversaries, Egypt and Jordan respectively, have reached a peace and have kept that peace, albeit a cold peace, and even managed some coordination when mutual advantage was the result. Israel is currently assisting Jordan supplying them water and additional electricity alleviating some of the demands made by the refugees from Syria who have fled to Jordan. Coordination between Israel and Egypt have been more concrete in that both have difficulties with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza and concerns over terrorist and fighting which has flared in the Sinai Peninsula. Israel has provided assistance with intelligence on activities in the Sinai and Egypt has kept a mutually beneficial blockade on Gaza both on land and sea in order to block weapons or transfers of personnel between Gaza and Egypt, especially weapons into Gaza and terror personnel from Gaza into the Sinai. Well, appears to be no real problems and even potentials for improvement over time between Israel and her neighbors Jordan and Egypt.
Well, how about the big Arab nation, Saudi Arabia. Well, currently the Saudi authorities have had to field and downplay if not completely deny rumors that they have been coordinating with Israel almost acting as if they were normal nations with full agreements in place. Well, this sure is interesting as technically Saudi Arabia never reached any peace agreement with Israel since the war between the two nations as part of the six nations which attacked Israel the very first morning of Israeli existence as a nation on May 15, 1948. Actually, Israel and Saudi Arabia were revealed to possibly have been working in conjunction, with Saudi Arabia potentially offering to permit Israeli pilots to refuel in Saudi air space and for stricken pilots who required emergency assistance returning from an attack on Iranian nuclear sites permission to use certain military airfields in Saudi Arabia according to leaked information by sources within the United States. The American sources were reputed to be the same which also would out plans for Israel to rent the use of military airfields in Azerbaijan in an attack on the Iranian nuclear sites. These are all rumored events and the claims that the leaks originated from within the administration of President Obama while others claim it was from within the United States Department of State. Such sourcing is less important than whether these leaks were real or imagined and whether the rumors of Israeli coordination with Saudi Arabia or Azerbaijan. Even the hint of cooperation from any Arab or Islamic nation with the Jewish State, Israel, is sufficient to bring about great commotions and denials from the rumored guilty state. Still, such rumors do tell much about the relations and some of the challenges faced by Israel when it comes to relations with her neighboring nations.
North of Israel is the nation of Lebanon who has had three wars with Israel over the last three quarters of a century. That is since before Israel was founded and Lebanon was amongst the six nations attacking Israel on her first day in existence. Making any progress between Lebanon and Israel will require a basic alteration in the leadership of Lebanon as currently Hezballah controls the Lebanese governance. A recognized terrorist organization being in control of the parliament of one’s nation and their hand chosen representative serving as Prime Minister does mean there can be no normalized relations with Israel. Lebanon was a predominantly Christian nation and over time has slowly but inexorably been Islmisized. This has been done initially in a terror war when Yasser Arafat and the PLO were evicted from Jordan after attempting to overthrow the King and government in the Black September attempted coup. This led to the First Lebanon War when Israel responded to pleas for help by Lebanese Christians. Since that war, which included an invasion by Syria at the presumed request of the Muslims, the society has faced numerous terrorist uprisings and steady pressure forcing the Christian population to emigrate mostly to Europe and the United States. This has slowly changed the character of the country and Lebanon will likely never return to Christian majority population and the governance will also be altered by this erosion. There will not be peace with Lebanon as Hezballah has started claiming that Israel is occupying the Galilee which has been part of Israel and recognized as Israeli land as it is entirely south of the Blue Line, the United Nations surveyed and recognized border between Israel and Lebanon.
So, finally we will investigate the Palestinian situation. The realization that the Arab nations would be unable to easily destroy Israel through military actions alone and the world viewing the Arab Israeli problem as being the Goliath Arab world fighting the David Israelis who were at a monstrous numerical disadvantage. The solution to this was to create a false flag to fight Israel supported by the Arab world, and the Palestinians were invented and chose to mirror the Jewish or Israelite history. They also adopted the idea of the big lie stated consistently and over a long period of time will become the accepted truth. The fact that the Israelis still have not set forth any opposing viewpoint leaves the public believing that the world would know the truth and that should be sufficient. It has not been anywhere near enough. The Palestinians have had one overriding aim, the complete destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Israeli population, particularly the Jewish population and any other non-Muslims. The misconception sold by the Palestinian Authority and their followers has been that there was a nation of Palestine which Israel replaced. They point to the 1948 war which was started by six Arab nations and additional forces against Israel and had nothing to do with any mythical nation of Palestine. The name Palestinian before 1948 was used almost exclusively to denote the Jews as the Arabs were simply known as the Arabs remarkably enough. The Palestine Brigade which fought alongside the British was made up almost entirely of Jews from the territories of Palestine. The territories of Palestine were eventually made into two nations, an Arab nation of Jordan and the Jewish nation of Israel. The Arab world refused to accept this and attempted to destroy Israel by force attacking as noted above on Israel’s first day of existence, May 15, 1948.
The next question is exactly what have the Palestinian Arab representatives claimed they demand to end their violence. The reality is different from what politicians in the Western developed world claim it is and more strictly follow the line of the demonstrators and agitators who take their leads from Ramallah. The Western developed world politically correct and reality stunted politicians claim all Mahmoud Abbas and his merry gang of thugs desire is to have their own nation cut from Judea and Samaria which legally belong to Israel. Meanwhile, the BDS protesters who take their marching orders from the sponsors and originators of their movement in Ramallah, the ones who sought further assistance in the Israel boycott movement helping the Arab boycott, divestment and sanction program against Israel run by Ramallah, demanded exactly what Mahmoud and his fellow thugs have been demanding, from the river to the sea. As the Arab Palestinian Authority is modeled after the Jewish drive through the centuries which finally reached fruition during the treaty talks after World War I when other nationalistic claims were made and recognized and the San Remo Conference spelled out the map of Israel which just so happened to stretch from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Thus we have the BDS groups parroting the demand from Ramallah of, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” This begs whatever do they mean by free? This demand is firstly free of Jews. Next is free of non-Muslims. Finally free of even Muslims who disagree with the leadership in Ramallah which would include Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and a majority of Arab Palestinians who desire the removal of Mahmoud Abbas. It is this desire to replace Mahmoud Abbas that has stymied any hope the Arab Palestinians might have for holding elections and has nothing whatsoever to do with Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has allowed to stand the order that all of the lands from the British Mandate are to be an Islamic WAQF or holy ordained Muslim enclave, every last grain of sand. East of the Jordan there is the original Arab state of Jordan but the Arab design is for another Arab state on all the remainder of the lands west of the Jordan River. This is the origins of the protesters’ chant of, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.”
Further backing this claim on all the land has been Arafat’s demand which became Abbas’s demand that the Arab cause would continue on their liberation activities even should they receive their own recognized state as that state would be but merely the launching pad for the violent takeover of the remainder of Israel. Abbas even has taken claim to all of what is today Israel when he accepted a full sized map of Israel during one of the celebrations where the people are made to chant the River to the Sea protest song (see below). Often Abbas’s statement that all he requires is to receive twenty-four percent of the land is interpreted as a demand for the lands of Gaza and the West Bank which are around twenty-two percent of what would otherwise be Israel as defined in international treaties. This was a selfless man who demanded a mere twenty two percent of the land. The reality is that the lands west of the River represent almost exactly twenty-two percent of the original Mandate Lands. That is why the ceremony pictured below is of such great importance to the Palestine replacing Israel movement. The pictured event below could have taken a photograph anywhere in Ramallah with anybody representing Israel as pictured below. This picture was given to Abbas as a sign of solidarity during one of the numerous Arab summit meetings which are always scheduled just as often for kicking off the next intifada or reaching a new understanding ending the concluding wave of violence. These presentations are given massive coverage in the media in Europe but are seen less often by Americans as the American media is not government controlled, just the American media is chosen for depicting the government accomplishments and offering forth the latest and greatest peace proposal. This peace proposal was the surrender of all of Israel, an event they see as inevitable as many in the West, especially the United States, are ready to sacrifice all of Israel on the funeral pyre of Western society in Europe.
So, in a twisted manner it really is Israel which is the greatest threat as Israel is the stopper standing between the Islamic Middle East and the formerly Christian Europe. It is of great importance that the death of Christianity in Europe will become the main recognized fact behind the complete loss of will to protect what has been built. It is exactly the willingness of Israel to resist and fight for her identity as the sole Jewish State standing between an awakening of Islamic supremacy and the death of faith in Europe. It was in part because of the Israeli willingness to take in all of the Jews displaced after World War I which facilitated the formation of Israel. This was of great importance to the Zionists seeking a return to their native lands and rebuilding the modern society with Jerusalem as its character. The lands where Israel was separated for the new nation were refuted by Islamic sensibilities which demanded that the land remain ruled over by Muslims. This demand led directly to the backing of Hamas, as the Muslim Brotherhood aligned group against Fatah which was the secular entity, which left the Jewish State as the least likely to become self-governing as the land was seemingly destined to remain under Islamic rule. The Zionists proved to be the dominant group within the area and this directly forced the decisions to permit Israel to be the Jewish State to come to fruition. Even the British White Papers which attempted to limit Jewish integration into the society under seventy-five-thousand per year proved insufficient to prevent the Jews from reaching the Holy Lands through whatever means was available. This was followed by the Arab and Muslim nations expelling their Jews over the first fifteen years after Israel was recognized. Most of these Jews had all their wealth taken by the Arabs as they left facing annihilation if they had remained. With limited funds, unless they had relatives in Europe or the United States, these Jews found their way to Israel which gladly accepted these Jews. This was the first result which proved Israel would accept any Jewish refugees from anywhere in the world, a pledge tested numerous times and Israel rose to meet every challenge facing world Jewry throughout her existence.
The threat Israel poses to Islam is preventing their marching straight through Europe, and from there conquering the Americas, Africa and eventually Asia and the rest of the world. Israel is and always has been the beating heart of the Jewish people and their dream of their heavenly Holy Lands which seemingly only bloom when the Jews hold these lands. This has been borne out by history and is obvious even today as one can compare the Israeli economy and accomplishments compared to Gaza, West Bank, Lebanon and anywhere throughout these areas which does not have oil wealth. The stark difference is astounding and can be recognized from high altitudes as Israel is a green jewel amidst sand colored dead earth. Israel is a necessary and crucial part of any defense of the Western way of life and as a central base for operations and any sabotage of any Arab push into Europe as well as serving as an advanced intelligence gathering unit. Finally, Israel is a leader in drone technology, security software, encryption and fully capable of designing software for virtually every scenario. Israel will prove to be the protector of the world for as long as she holds the strategic lands. Israel may serve as the launch site for any actual defense. Israel is the lynchpin linking Asian Culture, the Indian Culture, African Culture and European Culture. Throughout history wars were fought over these lands as their centrality to the many different trade routes and its religious significance made Jerusalem one of if not the most desirable city on the planet. The way the world is starting to shape up bodes of a coming storm which will center upon Israel once more except this time Israel will survive intact and those attempting to conquer her will simply smash their armies and war machines to pieces as Israel stands preventing the further spread of Islam in her area which traditionally was the jumping off point into Roman Empire and it was the walls of Acre which withstood being conquered in modern times (at least until this final war to end warring as the means to settle disputes finding a more advantageous route). There is a great possibility that a long anticipated fight will finally take place where the future, if any, will be decided between Islam, Judaism, Christianity and religious freedom once and for all on the plains of Megiddo.
