The World Often Appears Insane

 

Well, not necessarily the whole world all at once, but there is plenty of crazy to go around. Currently, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights as well as being Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein of Jordan. That is right; he is one of the Crown Princes of Jordan and direct relative of Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan. He has instructed the United Nations Human Rights Council to distribute letters to over one-hundred-fifty major companies warning them that should they continue trading with Israeli companies which may have business dealings or selling their products in the “Occupied Territories,” also known as Judea and Samaria, then they will be black listed making it illegal for nations to use their products or services. Most of these companies appear ready to move all their operations from within Israel and possibly to cut off all trade with Israel. This is straight-forward blackmail and a blatant attempt to place universal sanctions on the nation of Israel.

 

This is in addition to the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) making rulings that divest Israel from the Temple Mount, the Cave of the Patriarchs (Cave of Machpelah where Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah are buried) Jerusalem, Hevron, Judea, Samaria and given time assuredly anyplace on planet Earth. All of these came after UNESCO became the initial United Nations agency to admit the Palestinian Authority under the guise of being the country of Palestine. This came on the heels of Mahmoud Abbas declaration declaring the end of the Palestinian Authority replacing that name on all paperwork, passports and other legal document with State of Palestine in January on Monday January 7, 2013. Then there is the fact that the UNHRC has as the initial part of the agenda for every gathering the denunciation of Israel as a required item. Below is a quote from UN Watch concerning the obsessive, one might say maniacal, nature of the United Nations General Assembly.

 

GENEVA, Dec. 21, 2016 – The UN General Assembly has wrapped up its annual legislative session by adopting twenty resolutions against Israel—click here for detailed chart—and only six resolutions on the rest of the world combined, with three on Syria, and one each on Iran, North Korea and Crimea.

 

If it were only the United Nations, it could be ignored; but it goes so much further. Recently, INTERPOL decided to admit Palestine as a new member nation. Just place that front and center in your mind and imagine INTERPOL sending their Palestinian inspectors to aid in finding the reasons behind the recent attack in Las Vegas. Additionally, the European Union has ordered Israeli goods to be marked separately if they were produced in Judea and Samaria. If the wording were to be carried to the ludicrous extent, then this special labelling could be placed on any item that might contain parts that were produced in Judea and Samaria. If one were to carry it to even further extremes, one could simply mark everything Israeli made as from Judea and Samaria. There have been some unintended consequences of this system where adopted as some people have actually sought items marked in this manner for purchase over items not carrying the stigma. Sometimes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, as we all know all too well. Then there have been a long list of European nations that have either recognized Palestine or passed rulings supportive of recognition but not actually formally recognizing Palestine. The Vatican also recognized Palestine. There actually is an internationally respected and often accepted document from the International Alliance for Holocaust Remembrance which contains a suggested legal Definition of Anti-Semitism. This definition has been accepted by many nations for prosecuting crimes but somehow the definition never quite gets applied to the government actions.

 

There is an area which deserves note, the many individual states within the United States which have passed laws making any invocation of BDS (boycott, divestment and sanction) against Israel by any government agency as well as business or company doing business or receiving State contracts illegal and as a disqualifying act. The Federal Government has not adopted such legislation despite it being potentially a part of their responsibility as part of international trade and dealing with a foreign nation. What most people are unaware of is exactly how and where the BDS movement began. The origin was the Arab boycott of all things Israel started in 1948 and decided upon before Israel was even declared a nation. The Arab League at the bidding of the PLO took the Arab boycott of Israel and decided after watching what happened with the Apartheid boycott of South Africa that they would adopt the same idea and reasoning with Israel. It does not matter that in Israel Muslims are granted all the same rights as Jews as are Christians and every religion, race and ethnicity. Israel is a multicultural democracy as well as the Jewish State. But the Arabs are betting that because Israel is the Jewish State that they can make people believe that only Jews have rights. That would be the same as believing that in France no one of English or German origins could have equal rights.

These efforts are playing on the historic idea the Jews are different and prefer other Jews and are united against non-Jews. They particularly misuse the Palestinian Arabs as not having rights in Israel where they have rights except voting as they are not Israeli citizens and most were Jordanian citizens and still have Jordanian passports. Claiming that Palestinians should have full rights in Israel would be equal to claiming that Mexicans should have full rights in the United States. But this works because of Arab propaganda which has a multi-billion dollar industry backing the efforts and have been attempting to destroy Israel for decades, actually over half a century and approaching a century. The Arabs have been fighting against allowing any Jewish State since the end of World War I after the Ottoman Empire was defeated and the Balfour Declaration was made public in 1917. Unfortunately, Israel does not have a department specially designed to fight this propaganda war and this proved a disaster after the Durban Conference (World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance) in 2001 which was turned into an Israel hate-fest. The following Durban Conferences were basic repeats of the original. These Durban Conferences have become so toxic that the United States, Israel, Canada and a number of European nations amongst others have refused to attend. But not to worry, hatred of Israel will remain a part of the world’s agenda in far too many places for as long as the Arab nations demand on pushing their agenda to destroy Israel and Islam insists on declaring their war against the Jews.
