Peace Buzz Promises Even Louder Response

Once again, we are hearing renewed buzzing that President Trump and his team are almost ready to unveil their “Deal of the Century.” When we hear the term “Deal of the Century,” it is intended to have reverberation with an echo and dramatic music playing as if it were the opening of a Cecil B DeMille movie theme promising entertainment and excitement of what is about to play out throughout not just the Middle East, but worldwide. If only all the drama and expectation was actually worth the buildup it is being given. There are actually two scenarios which may play out once the deal is actually announced and the world gets to see about what all the buzzing has been. There has been the mention that because the Palestinian Authority has already stated irrevocably that they will reject anything the Zionist controlled administration managing President Trump will produce as his “Deal of the Century,” that the deal will be drafted as an adjustment which will finalize the Jordan-Israel peace agreement with Jordan accepting the Arabs currently under the rule of the Palestinian Authority as Jordanian citizens while Israel will likely provide them with security. The new Jordanian citizens will be tempted with housing and jobs within an area in Jordan where the United States will provide factories and those who wish to remain where they currently reside will become resident aliens under Israeli sovereignty but with the rights and privileges of being citizens of Jordan. Be that as it may, what the “Deal of the Century” provides to resolve this century plus year old problem, it will be difficult to seeing the King of Jordan risking the internal peace of his nation by accepting anything President Trump might offer. But let us assume for discussion that President Trump has the magical negotiating abilities he has claimed to posses and actually has persuaded the King of Jordan to accept some deal. What happens in the ensuing days, weeks and months is the question.

 

The particulars of the deal are inconsequential as it will be up to Jordan and Israel to enforce the enactment of any deal. By accepting the deal, the King of Jordan is taking a huge risk that the eighty-percent of the Jordanian population who are Palestinian Arabs rising up in protest and attempting to overthrow King Abdullah II and then demand that they be granted rule over the entirety of the British Mandate lands as they claim to be entitled. If that were not sufficient problem there will also be the reaction of the Arabs currently ruled by Mahmoud Abbas who have been steeped in hatred of Israel to the point that anything short of the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of her Jews will cause them to rise up with terrorist attacks whenever they are capable of doing so. Israel will need to be prepared for knifing attacks, vehicular rammings, shootings, terrorist suicide bombers and anything else that especially the Arabs under forty can find with which to try and destroy the peace and kill Israelis. Even Arabs who have befriended Israelis with whom they work will very well become a threat to their coworkers as was the case recently at the Alon Group factory in the Barkan Industrial Zone. The terrorist of the attack on the Barkan Industrial Zone factory is still a fugitive with family and friends suspected of aiding his escaping arrest. Now imagine the majority of the Arab population in the Palestinian Authority areas joined by the majority of the population of Jordan and this could become a very serious and destabilizing revolt in response to any accepted peace deal. Mahmoud Abbas will not make peace as should he do so he would not likely live to go to sleep the ensuing evening. If the Jordanian King were to make peace, it would be unlikely he would be in Jordan when such was announced and probably would never be able to return without living in fear for his life. If any uprising proved sufficiently destabilizing then Jordan might come under control of Hamas or even the IRGC directed to take the nation by Iran. Further, if Israel were to face a serious number of terrorist attacks resulting from any deal, then it is possible and even likely that Iran would use the fact that the IDF had to face one security problem to attack with Hezballah from Lebanon and possibly IRGC from within Syria stretching Israeli security forces and potentially causing a massive call-up of reservist to bolster the IDF presence. This could turn into the next Arab Israeli war in which the nation with the most to lose would not be Israel; actually, it would be Jordan.

 

We are fairly sure that such is not the desired result President Trump is seeking though it is difficult to see what form of an offer which could be imposed which would result in calm. We know that Israel would refuse to request any United States troops be deployed within Israel, as the last thing Israelis would ever desire would be for soldiers from any foreign nation to be put at risk defending Israel. Israelis insist that Israelis defend Israel and the only things we might request would be resupply and replacement for armaments depleted during any conflict. Israel will resist having peacekeepers placed within the regions under Israeli control as a precaution against being to blame should they become casualties due to any aggression regardless of who is to blame. This lesson was driven home early on when in 1967 the peacekeeping force installed after the Suez Crisis resulted in Israel gaining control temporarily of the Sinai Peninsula. Part of the agreement arranged by the United Nations, after the Israeli withdrawal, the United Nations placed peacekeepers in the Sinai to prevent Egyptian forces from gathering in strength anywhere near the Israeli border. That plan fell apart in May of 1967 as Egypt placed heavy military in the Sinai approaching the Israeli border and ordered the peacekeepers to leave, as they were no longer appreciated. The withdrawal had to await orders from New York and the Secretary General, which was delayed as Secretary General U Thant was not informed officially by Egypt for over a week which left these forces vulnerable when the war began in early June of 1967 leading to fifteen peacekeepers’ deaths and a score injured before they could be removed to safety. Hopefully, peacekeepers are not an integral part of President Trump’s “Deal of the Century.”

We really wish we could be more positive that such a deal actually could exist which would bring peace to the region. If something could be arranged which ended the Arab desire for the eradication of Israel and also end the carnage in Syria and against the Kurds by Turkey in northern Syria and Iraq with IRGC provided by Iran in northern Iraq, then much of the world’s problems would be resolved immediately. The basic problem is the insistence by Islamic interpretations of the Quran which have been taken to mean that any lands which were ever conquered by the forces of Islam must remain under Islamic rule or never be allowed to know peace; that creates the main stumbling block to peace. This interpretation should, and probably will, threaten Spain and potentially Portugal and southwestern France, as these regions were under Moorish Muslims control before being defeated by Charles “the Hammer” Martel and then pushed from the Iberian Peninsula by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella during the Spanish Inquisition. This was also the reason that Islamic powers demanded Kosovo be granted to them as claimed by Albania which claimed it had once been a province within their rule. We can expect eventually to face claims up to the gates of Vienna, if our knowledge of history serves us well. But this is also the bedrock of the Islamic claim to Israel being that they have ruled it and in that entire time it was never ruled by Jews. When your idea of history is that it begins whenever you come into control of a region, that then removes any claims former peoples who ruled are able to make because they never existed once Islam conquered the region. As far as the Holy Land is concerned, Islam refuses to recognize the history of the Jews ruling the lands. They take this one-step further by claiming that Abraham, Isaak, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, King David, King Solomon were all Muslims. The little problem that they preceded the writing of the Quran is of little bother as they also claim Noah was a Muslim while the Jews recognize that Noah was not Jewish or a Hebrew and that something predates Jewish history. Just in case you were wondering, the Muslims also claim that Adam and Eve were followers of Islam and that every person upon birth is Islamic and then mistakenly go astray to follow other religions and philosophies. You have probably heard the claims that Jesus was a Muslim and the first Palestinian who was tortured and killed by the Jews, something even the Christians have finally recognized was the doings of the Romans. You can probably see that the problem we are attempting to solve between the Arabs and Israel is actually a lot larger than just Israel.

 

So, armed with the knowledge that the problem with Israel according to the Muslim Arabs is not how big or small an area it holds, it is that it is ruled by Jews who should be a people without a homeland left to wander the world subjected to the whims of good and evil fortune as befalls them in each location. Anywhere where Islam rules, the Jews are to be considered Dhimmi and permitted to live protected by their Islamic betters for as long as they pay the Jiyza (protection taxes) and remain in favor, for should they become difficult, then they may be slaughtered. This is the Islamic views of the Jews which for much of history was shared by much of the Christian world as well except for the additional tax, the Christians would simply force the Jews to flee their area and would just take all their wealth when it suited them. Neither of these views ever foresaw the Jews ever returning to their ancient homelands, though it had been prophesized by Isaiah in Chapter 66:8 where it states, “Who has heard of a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will a land be brought forth with labor pains in one day? Or will a nation be born at one time? For Zion has come into labor pains as well as given birth to her sons.” There is more to the prophesy of the return of the Jews to Israel which we spoke of here. But as far as Islam is concerned, it really does not matter because all those prophets from the history of the Jewish People were really pre-Quranic Muslims and thus all of their prophesies were Islamic. Once you get the idea how this works, it all still does not make any sense. This is the conundrum which President Trump, also probably a closet Muslims by their rationale, or if not currently, then some point in the future or something like that, has to try and undo if he is going to make peace.

 

The basic demand made by Islamic Imams and others who get to interpret the Quran is that Israel cannot exist today because it never existed since around 750 AD. The only others to have ever controlled Jerusalem were the Crusaders who did so against the will of Allah and were only permitted their temporary victories in order to test the Islamic faithful by allowing them to reconquer the region. You see, all Israel is to the Islamic faithful is a test to see how long it will take for them to be rid of this evil placed in the heart of their lands. They have no doubt that they will destroy Israel; it is just a matter of when and by whom. Yes, we realize that this clashes with the Jewish prophesy that this time we have returned to our ancestral homeland finally and will build the Third and final Temple and ne a beacon to the world providing all of mankind with discoveries and innovations and becoming the beloved of the world. Unfortunately, of all the prophesies we are aware, and we admit we lack much in this area, there is nothing to inform us about how long this will take and whether we are required to have all or ninety-percent or exactly how many of our people are going to return before all these other wonders are to begin. We kind of hope they are not already started as then we are looking at a strange means of being the beloved of the world. Anyway one looks at this, we have competing prophesies, but we are not alone in this. The Quran, according to modern interpretation being taught today, states that Allah will give rule of the world to Islam and its followers and that then every person will bow before Allah and follow his Quran. Then there are the Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Shinto, Baha’I and who knows how many other religious faiths whose prophesy says nothing about bending knees to Allah or following the Quran. Even the concepts of the Secular Humanists disagree with this as they do not even believe that their system of beliefs is a religion or that any religion is real and only that which science can prove is real, that and the platform of the Green Party, Democrat Party, Socialist Party or the Socialist Democrat Party is real. We have always wondered what will happen to the Secular Humanists if science were to prove that our universe actually did have a creator. There would be a crisis in faith for sure. Meanwhile, President Trump, we hope that your “Deal of the Century” actually does bring lasting peace to our region even if it is not particularly loved by all involved.
