The Whole and Ugly Reality Surrounding Israel

 

We all know that there are extreme levels of threats surrounding Israel. Many of these fronts can be traced back to Iran, but more on that after we give measure to some of the realities. Through polls, random samplings and quotes given by people in Gaza we know that they are amongst the most anti-Zionist, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic of populations on the planet. They are even more hateful than the population of Jordan, the nation which usually outpolls all other Arab and Muslim nations in all three areas. This would make Gaza the world leader if it were to be considered a nation. And there is the other truth the world likes to ignore, Gaza, for all intents and purposes, is a nation run by Hamas and should simply be called Hamasistan. The next most anti-Israel-Zionist-Semitic region on the planet is Southern Lebanon which no longer has much of a Christian population and is largely Hezballah families and rabid supporters of the terrorist groups. Hezballah has, as of the last election held recently; taken complete control of the entire nation as their actions and intimidations has emptied Lebanon of a majority of its former Christian population as any who could move very likely left. Lebanon also needs a name change to Hezballaland. Their solid area in southern Lebanon would fall in right behind Gaza and all of Lebanon would be close behind Gaza and closing on the Palestinian Authority areas.

 

The Palestinian Authority (PA) area is only less anti-Israel-Zionist-Semitic because many of the people work alongside Israeli Jews in the factories and other Israeli Jewish businesses. This allows some PA residents to find out the awful truth, Jews, even Israeli Jews from beyond the Green Line, “Settler” Jews; they do not have horns, drink blood of children or any of the other wonderful lies, myths and deceits most often told about Jews and Israelis and especially Zionists, which defines the majority of the “Settlers” are false and they are simply people just like the Arabs are people providing they have not swallowed the hatred pill and become ravaging vengeance machines. Still, if elections were to be held in the PA ruled regions, Hamas would win holding at least two-thirds if not four-fifths of the legislative body and would easily defeat Mahmoud Abbas and any other Fatah candidate for President. This would still leave Abbas as Chairman of the PLO and leader of Fatah, the latter just barely. There is one Fatah candidate with any chance of winning the Presidency of the PA and that is Marwan Barghouti who is imprisoned in Israeli prison serving five-years plus for the murder by terrorism of five of the many his plans and executions have murdered. It is exactly his being one of their most celebrated terror masterminds which makes Marwan Barghouti such a favorite.

As we have seen, Gaza, Jordan, Hezballaland (Lebanon) and slightly more civil PA really take the cake when it comes to hatred and seething, molten iron hot, murderous hatred of Israel and every Jew and any other non-Muslim within almost completely envelops Israel leaving the southern border with Egypt and the Golan Heights area with Syria actually bordering Israel though one might make a case that maybe six or seven inches of Israel at the southern tip shares a border with Saudi Arabia snuggly nestled between Jordan and Egypt. Let us take Syria first as it is the far more simple border as well as smaller. This is another border along with Gaza and Hezballaland where Israel faces terrorists allied with and provided for by Iran. In Syria Israel faces, on top of Hezballah, the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) forces, as well as the fanatical Quds Force which is manned by nearly rabid fanaticism with the explicit focus on the destruction of Israel, murder of all Jews and we are told the conquest of al-Quds, which is the Islamic name for Jerusalem. From this front Israel faces a determined enemy which will use any form of weaponry, it is just a matter of time. Sooner or later Iran will fire a barrage of rockets all topped with Sarin Gas warheads such that if a single rocket evades the Iron Dome or is considered to be falling in a harmless open area and any Israel breathes in even a minute amount, providing they get appropriate medical attention almost immediately, will face a life where they will be challenged performing simple daily routines and at least twenty years less life. Without immediate treatment or if a stronger amount is inhaled, the result is certain death after convulsions and searing pain. What would be the Israeli response to a Sarin Gas attack, the use of a WMD on her population, I would not want to even hazard a guess. Whatever the chosen response, it would be definitive and near absolute in nature, carefully planned and decided and executed with a firm resolve beyond imagination. The people most likely to execute the response, providing the response is not simply nuclear missiles as responding in kind, would be the same people who removed over a ton of classified information from a secured and secret location in Tehran replete with pictures of the building, the inside of the building, a map of its location in Tehran and the complete documentation of the Iranian nuclear program from before the year 2000 to the present in the form of folders of documents, compact disks; to be exact it was reportedly 55,000 pages of evidence and a further 55,000 files on 183 CDs relating to Project Amad.

Now we face Egypt, a place with probably one of the greatest disconnects concerning Israel. Where we have no actual idea of what President Sisi or any of the rest of the ruling elite in Egypt feel towards Israel, but we do know that they really would prefer not to engage in a war or exchange of hostilities and rather work on their national economy. The Egyptian government does, at times, coordinate with Israel on their two mutual problems, Hamas in Gaza and terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula. Egypt has even requested Israeli assistance in the Sinai Peninsula and given Israel permission at times to operate in the Sinai to remove terror threats as these threats are against both nations. These times of cooperation are always of benefit to Egypt and usually also Israel though there have been some times where the benefit of an Israeli action was likely more beneficial to Egypt. Then there are the people of which the vast majority believes that Egypt should engage Israel militarily and wipe Israel from the map. This is their thoughts as they also have been taught that Egypt has won every engagement with Israel and is the vastly more powerful nation. Without any evidence to corroborate or contravene what they have been told, they take the information provided by their government at face value. Eventually, the Muslim Brotherhood will regain rule in Egypt and then the cooperation will end and the countdown to a new war to push the Jews into the Sea, to quote Nasser, will commence with who knows allied with Egypt this time, Iran, Syria, Hezballaland, all of the above, who knows.

 

This is pretty much the situation here in paradise. Surrounded by entities almost wholly dedicated to our extinction, Israelis live an absurdly normal lives. Yes, ever few years, somewhere in Israel her citizens head into shelters at varying speeds from frantic urgency to a brisk walk when they hear the sirens scream their warning of incoming rockets or other projectiles. Despite the unrivaled efficiency of the Iron Dome systems in intercepting projectiles, Israelis still head into shelters as well as we celebrate life. Actually, this is one of the taunts we receive by which we are presumed to be the less powerful and guaranteed to lose the conflict with the Arab World simply because, as Hamas spokespersons have stated, “Hamas loves death like Israelis love life.” This is often quoted around the entirety of the Islamic war zones which ring the borders of the Islamic world where their presumed strength is their willingness to die for the cause. The real problem is that they are not only willing to die but they insist on taking as many innocents as possible, either Israelis or their own people as the terror leaders believe that their own dead civilians are an asset which can be utilized through the pictures they will make available for the media to spread for them with subtitles of their being killed by Israel. There will be no mention of their serving as human shields simply so they would be killed. Still, mostly our lives are very similar to anywhere else in the developed world. Traffic jams, rush hour, grocery shopping and all the other chores and pleasures of life. We are all living driving distance from the Mediterranean Sea, some of us just a few blocks walking distance from the same Mediterranean Sea as makes up the coasts of France and Italy and all those famous beaches and communities of film and literary fame. There is always the chance of a scare, a threat or some unsettling news which you soon learn to ignore as these horrible things seldom develop. Israel has found the secret to remaining peaceful, make the price for breaching the peace too terrible to contemplate and complete enough to make prolonged continuation nearly impossible. Eventually there will be another attempt on each of these fronts, most likely one or two at any given time. Should the Arab forces be foolish enough to all make a move against Israel in total accordance with one another, then Israel would be pressed to end the confrontation as rapidly and completely as humanly possible. This would mean that Israel would be forced to blunt every force and cause the greatest possible numbers of casualties so as to end the attacks as immediately as possible. It would be the order no Prime Minister would feel good giving, but then watching the country of Israel die is not an alternative which would be acceptable to any elected leader.

 

Israel lives on what could easily be called a knife’s edge, but our balance is good and we make do with the hand we have chosen. We realize this and accept it as part of the package of reclaiming our homelands. That is all we wish to have, our ancient homelands where the twelve tribes were originally mapped out, nothing more and even an amount less. There are groups of Israelis who desire for the Temple to be rebuilt and believe it will occur within their lifetimes. The Arab, Christian, Muslim, Bahia, Buddhist and other religions all live here with complete equality and enjoy all the freedoms and privileges which all Israeli citizens enjoy. One need understand that the Palestinians have their own governances, in Gaza, it is Hamas and in the PA regions, it is Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah. They are responsible for their own laws and when to hold elections, which by all measures is never. Israel relented on such control long ago and the presumed occupation by Israel has nothing to do with the lives of the Palestinian Arabs, it has to do with everyone else. The occupation is the sheer existence of Israel and her people. When the surrounding Arabs and Muslims claim they want to end the occupation, they mean Israel, not their own miserable governance. When you hear the word occupation, hear Israel and then you will understand exactly for what they are screaming. They are screaming for the end of Israel as that is the only land we “occupy” and that is what causes them so much anger. The reality of the situation is that easy to interpret, replace “occupation” with “Israel” and it all becomes clear and makes sense. It really is that simple.
