A Dagger Through the Heart

 

Imagine bringing the Arab-Israeli Conflict to the point where peace is not only possible, but if avoided, then the standing International Laws would be enforced and peace reached through this means. This would take the Arabs from the Shomron (West Bank) and they would be reunited with the nation of their familiar nationality. Each family would be given the choice of returning to the nation from whence their family immigrated into the region or being returned into Jordan as this is the last nationality their families were known to have held. This result would be even more harsh than those we have supported and stated here. The entire field has been reset this past week thanks to the efforts of President Trump. Yes, President Trump. The initial step was completely ending all United States financial aid to UNWRA, the anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic United Nations organization which is based on bringing an end to the Jewish State. Their educational materials and lessons have been revealed and laid bare depicting their hate filled curriculum and the fact that in Gaza the majority of their employees are assigned from within Hamas and hold positions as teachers and the majority of administrative positions in control of exactly what is taught. With the United States withdrawing their financing from UNWRA, an amount equal to one-third of the UNWRA budget, now it will be up to the European Union and the Arab League nations to either finance the required funds which may happen for a year or two after which UNWRA will slowly wither on the vine. But this is but the initial blow which is bringing an end to the Arab dreams of destroying Israel by flooding Israel with Arab refugees.

President Trump just had the State Department research how many actual people who were refugees from the 1948-9 initial war to destroy Israel where six Arab armies and other forces from around the Arab world attacked Israel and as a result gained a foothold in Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank) taking land from what was originally set aside for the nation of Israel by the British Mandate (see map below). The State Department returned with their result and they found mere tens of thousands, probably around twenty-thousand. In response to this finding and the problems entrenched within UNWRA, President Trump has taken the refugees and their so-called Right of Return off the table claiming it void and only the actual refugees to need a solution. These offspring who would not be considered to be refugees under any other refugee program in the history of the earth and especially modern day earth will no longer be considered refugees when discussing Israel and the Arab world. Basically, President Trump has decided something almost unprecedented in modern history, the last time such consideration was shown the Jewish People was by Cyrus the Great in approximately 550BCE allowing the Jews to return to the Holy Land and build the Second Temple, and he is treating Israel as an equal amongst the nations. President Trump has decided that Israel, the Jewish State, should not be treated as if they were the red-headed stepchild and be treated as any other nation on earth would be treated. There are not going to be special set of impositions placed upon Israel and instead Israel will be considered and treated as an equal amongst nations.

When Egypt and Syria initiated their war against Israel in late May and June of 1967 resulting in what has been named the Six Day War, Israel liberated both Gaza and the Shomron. Israel also took command of the Golan Heights and the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula. The United Nations, in a ruling which was quite a deportation from International Law about the rights of a nation which gains lands due to a defensive war, insisted that Israel was to surrender land, just land, not the land, not all land, just a nondescript land and was to retain regions necessary to provide safe and secure borders. Well, Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula, that definitely fits any description one might define as land. Israel annexed the Golan Heights as they make a defensible border. It was original believed for some time that Israel would retain the Shomron making the Jordan River once again the eastern border at the Jordan River, which includes the Jordan River Valley, a very defensible border (see image below). The Arabs have concentrated on making sure that the Arab world retains areas west of the Jordan River to allow for them to have a foothold beyond the natural defensive border which the Jordan River and its accompanying valley would provide Israel. This is being rapidly taken away by President Trump and he has made it purely evident to the Arab world that he is serious about forging a peace and either they can choose to take part in what is decided or simply accept whatever just comes about.

The Palestinian Autocratic Leadership is all upset that their money train might soon be derailed and their floating on cushions of cash be withdrawn. This has them making really revealing statements. For example, PLO executive committee member Ahmed Tamimi (yes, related to the darling of the anti-Israel groups who recently was released from Israeli incarceration) exclaimed, “Jerusalem is at the heart of the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic peoples.” Here is the problem with this statement found within Article 1 of the Palestinian National Charter which declares, “Palestine is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation…” Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Quran and has seldom been the third holiest city in all of Islam. Everyone knows that Mecca is the first holiest city with Medina holding the second slot. What has been interesting has been the history of the third holiest city. Over history, it has been Damascus, Baghdad, Persepolis, Constantinople, Madrid and whatever city was the highest priority for the Arab and Islamic empire desired to take next. Currently that is Jerusalem but even in recent times that title also was assigned to Paris, London, Rome, New York, Los Angeles and various others. PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi declared, “The rights of the Palestinian people are not for sale. There is no glory in constantly bullying and punishing a people under occupation. The U.S. administration has already demonstrated meanness of spirit in its collusion with the Israeli occupation and its theft of land and resources; now it is exercising economic meanness by punishing the Palestinian victims of this occupation.” Well, she used one word incorrectly, and that word was occupation. The Palestinian Arabs are not ‘under occupation’ but are ‘occupying’ the presumably contested region. All one need do is review the treaties, conventions and other agreements reached after World War I and signed in most instances by the leader of the Arab World King Faisal. These documents will all denote to the Mandate System and for the area in question, it will denote the British Mandate. Researching the British Mandate and the border for the Jewish State, Israel, was definitively defined as the Jordan River. Everyone involved knows the facts and the International Law which is why the Arabs never took their claims before the World Courts simply because they have no case and would quickly lose.

 

With UNWRA being defunded by the United States Trump Administration and the Palestinian Authority (PA) having their funding from the United States seriously cut largely due to their insistence on financially subsidizing terrorism and the murder of Israelis and their refusal to negotiate with anyone unless they have all their demands met as a precondition, the only thing left to discuss is whether or not Israel is to survive. President Trump has met the Palestinian Arab terrorist leadership’s bidding to eliminate the Jewish State and raised them an end to their ever having a state. This has unsettled them greatly and has them protesting that only they can dictate any answers, but President Trump is simply not hearing any of this. President Trump has simply but silently informed the leadership of Fatah, PA, PLO and Hamas and all incorporated in the Palestinian Arab refugee gaming of the system that these refugees are to be assimilated into the nation where they are currently located, especially those within the PA and Hamas regions as the only difference between the refugees inside the camps and outside the camps is the fences placed to force the refugees to remain outside the rest of the population so that they may be used as a political weapon. That weapon has been disarmed.

 

What is the Israeli part in this entire situation? Thusfar, the Israelis have remained quiet and low-keyed and not doing what many expected and expanding into the Shomron like nobody’s business. Instead, Israel has kept any building limited to the regions where Israeli developments already exist and have not started any major new developments. Politically, Israel has not been pressing anything and simply watching as President Trump redefines the rules of the game which had been being played since the formation of the Jewish State. Israel did provide President Trump with all the data and legal backing including solid evidence of the perfidy of Iran and their nuclear program. This came in the form of a Mossad raid in Tehran through which a half-ton of secret materials were stolen from the secured warehouse where the entirety of the history and evidence of every piece of research and paper trail along with CD’s and computer information revealing the whole of the Iranian nuclear program including proof that more than two decades ago, Iran had assembled the materials it needed to produce a nuclear bomb and all of this was performed within a mere six hours and twenty-nine minutes in the single night of January 31, 2018. Digest this for a moment, Israeli agents broke into a warehouse in the heart of Tehran and cut their way into some extremely secure and strong safes without destroying the contents and brought the entirety back to Israel as requested at some level. This information, every piece, was shared with the United States CIA, Military heads, State Department and President Trump and selected Administration representatives which aided President Trump in making his decision to void the American commitments and obligations under the President Obama’s Iranian Nuclear Deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This only required President Trump to declare he was not going to honor the JCPOA as it was not an actual treaty but simply a Presidential Agreement and thus could be annulled by the sitting President at his will without any need for Congress to act.

 

Thus, the main Israeli part of these actions has been to be nice and quiet and provide President Trump with information which the State Department may not be so forthcoming as the Deep State is basically not President Trump’s greatest allies if not more antagonistic. President Trump said he was going to be the person who could bring about the seemingly unattainable Arab-Israeli peace in the Middle East. With Syria in dissolution and Bashir al-Assad only holding on because of Russian and the Iranians even more so keeping him in power and likely to eventually reestablish a very depopulated nations which may lose its northern territory to Turkey and the Druze might decide to declare their own state in the south (we hope, we hope) and with any luck, Iraq will lose the north along with a small region of northeastern Syria for a new nation of Kurdistan (should the Kurds awaken to the fact that they were conned by the State Department) and Iran is actually overextended with Syria, Iraq and Yemen all requiring their assistance and having the threat of a general uprising at home, Jordan with a King whose hold is tenuous, and Egypt about as steadily lead as the military support exists, the Arab world around Israel is as shaky as unsupported jello on a warm hotplate. Israel is the stable nation in the center of a whirlpool and President Trump can make a deal with Jordan through which he guarantees that King Abdullah II retains his kingdom in a secure region. The Palestinians will also get their nation except instead of it being in Israel, it will be in the western region of Jordan where they rule themselves. The leadership of the PA and PLO will be sent packing into retirement with all their Swiss bank accounts. Israel and King Abdullah II will both be interested in preventing any terrorist influences to grow out of the Palestinian area and thus will work together to tend the Palestinian leadership. Initially, their first election will be monitored by international watchers who will mainly be formed by people which President Trump approves, thus not any of Hamas, PLO, PA, Islamic Jihad etc… This last part is a hope from us and not necessarily what President Trump has in mind. Further, there is another problem where President Trump has claimed that the sides of the negotiations must agree to any solution which may require some arm-twisting. The one thing we can believe that arm-twisting is something that President Trump already knows exactly what will make a great arm-twister. The truth is out there and with time, it will become more evident and we will keep attempting to reason this out.
