Time to Talk About the Actual Occupation

 

We hear over and over again ad-infinitum about how the Palestinian Arab lands are occupied lands. Allow us to inform everybody what exactly is their definition of the occupied lands. According to the Palestinian Arabs, this includes all of the varieties in Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank), the occupied lands include everything between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. It includes east Jerusalem, west Jerusalem, Bet El, Tel Aviv, Eilat, Haifa, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Be’er Sheva, Sderot, Netanya, Tiberius, Nahariya and everything that even the United Nations claims they see as Israel. To these people our entire existence is illegal and we need to be exterminated. This is the Arab view of a compromise, that they will kill us and take everything. Now let us talk about that thing which has been stretched beyond recognition, International Law. International Law is based on some really unusual items such as Mandates, Treaties, Conferences and edicts from world bodies. You will never hear the Palestinian Arabs refer to anything beyond their pipe dreams of destroying Israel, murdering the Jews and living off the spoils they are able to claim. This was the promise given them by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who demanded that the Arabs leave the regions where the Jews lived so that when the victorious Arab armies from six nations, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Jordan and Iraq allied with several militias sent by other nations and gathered by the Mufti, swept across the Jewish lands slaughtering the Jews, who knew not how to fight, and would celebrate along the sea victoriously in 1948 when these forces assaulted the nascent state of Israel at her birth. That sweeping victory never came about and the Jews proved the match in a war which lasted two years. When Israel was founded, after the Arabs refused an additional partition because they were about to wipe out the Jews, thus once they refused the November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly resolution, UNGA Res 181, it became null and void, just as the Arabs desired. They refused to recognize even one square millimeter of a Jewish State and were going to annihilate the Jews to prove their Allah was superior to whatever the Jews worshiped. They gained some territory but failed in that mission.

 

The first thing which need be addressed is the refused offer and the actual boundaries for the Jewish State. Below we have included three maps. The one on the left was what the United Nations General Assembly offered in order to prevent a war. This offer was refused by the Arabs which then made that offer void for perpetuity. The middle map is the actual borders for the Jewish State as drawn by the San Remo Conference in its modified form under the British Mandate after 78% of the Mandate Lands, those east of the Jordan River, had been set aside for the Arabs of the region and those lands west of the Jordan River were to be the lands for the Jews. The map on the right shows what lands were taken during the war and held by the Arab forces with Egypt gaining the Gaza Strip and Jordan taking most of the Shomron, regions of Judea and Samaria, which they renamed West Bank so as to remove any Jewish sounding names from the region. The Gaza Strip was occupied illegally by Egypt which is in part why they refused to accept it back when Egypt and Israel reached a treaty on March 26, 1979. Jordan illegally occupied the Shomron and even forced a number of their Jordanian citizens to relocate into the region which is an even greater violation of International Law but they refused to claim these regions when they made peace with Israel on October 26, 1994. In both cases, the departing power refused to allow their citizens in these regions to return to their lands forcing the Palestinian Arab problem upon Israel in order to continue the Islamic threat to the stability of Israel. The reality should almost have become obvious as to what lands are occupied and who are those who are doing the occupying. Israel released her claim to Gaza with an understanding that should it become a breeding zone for terror attacks and become a threat to Israeli peace, then Israel has the right to retake Gaza and force the people supportive of the terrorist threats out of Gaza to seek their lives elsewhere, preferably far from Israel. With Hamas being elected and supported by minimally 80% of the Gaza population and with much of the population either active in Hamas or Islamic Jihad, Israel is within her rights to reconquer Gaza and remove the entirety of its population. These are Arabs who mostly are of Egyptian ancestry and thus pushing them into the Sinai Peninsula would be a viable solution. Israel can legally press the population of Gaza with very few exception into Egypt where the Egyptian government may do with them as they please providing that does not include Israel. Any Gazans who would be permitted to remain would be politically restricted to only voting in local elections such as city councils or town councils but restricted from voting in Israeli national elections. This was something granted the Jewish State from the San Remo Conference and in each permutation of that agreement including the Mandate System. But Gaza is recognized by much of the world as being a terrorist state which means they have none of the rights of a normative nation.

Then there are the regions which were covered by the optimism of an agreement called the Oslo Accords. Their original intent was for an agreement to be hammered out between the Arabs in the Shomron and Israel. This Oslo Accords were to last for five years and there was to be a form of peace agreed upon. That failed so we got Oslo II and then the Roadmap and finally the Gaza disengagement under George W Bush and Condoleezza Rice. This Gaza disengagement we covered above and Gaza deserves to be eradicated and wiped clean leaving the region for Israel to develop for the benefit of Israel and the world. But what about the Palestinian Authority and the seemingly eternal quest for an agreement which the Arabs do not refuse? Thusfar, there have been at least three offers, which most of the people working with the parties to fashion a peace thought were fair, which the Israelis had accepted only to have the Arab leadership of the Palestinian Authority refuse these offers without even making a supplemental offer or demands, but simply walking away from negotiations refusing to make counteroffers, or even setting any date for further negotiations. Of late, as the Arabs have gotten virtually everything possible through pretending to negotiate and are now working to increase the regions considered by the world at large that they are entitled with the eventual aim for their replacing the Jewish State and being rid of Israel and its Jews. Oslo Accords originally separated the region of contention into three zones, Area A which was to be under Palestinian Arab rule and security control, Area B which would be under Palestinian Arab rule and joint Arab and Israeli security and Area C which would be under Israeli rule and security control. The intention was that the Arabs would form their state out of Area A and a negotiated region agreed upon of Area B and Israel would annex all of Area C and the rest of Area B. The Palestinian Arabs have convinced the world at large that all of the contended region belongs to them and they have begun to work on being gifted the entirety of Jerusalem. They make demands in Arabic that they will also be the rulers of Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Eilat, and all of Israel because they claim that the Jews have never resided in Israel since the onset of Islam, the beginning of all existence. For the Arab world, nothing existed before Muhammad thus all history is but fairy tales told to the rest of the world to try and minimize the superiority of Islam. The problem is that according to International Law, the Jewish State has the borders depicted in the center map, which is the reason that the Palestinian Authority has never contested the existence of the Jewish State in the International Courts.

 

Because the terror fence/wall was proving very effective at deterring terrorism, the Palestinian Authority went to the International Court to try and have them forced it to be torn down. Egyptian Judge, Justice El Araby, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ), where he sat in judgement as part of the panel which heard the case where the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) sought an advisory opinion in 2003 from the ICJ on the legality of the security barrier erected by Israel; the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others, including Mahmoud Abbas and the whole of the PA, that filing further ran some risks, as he stated, “The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.” His warning was a candid way of inferring that should any group challenge the Israeli legal ownership of all the lands east of the Jordan River would run afoul of International Law and treaties, mandates, conferences and other legalities all of which sided with Israel. There have been no further cases brought before the International Courts since then as those opposed to Israel have heeded his warning. The one item not covered directly by these legalities concerns the Arab population within the contended areas, but they do fall under the rules of law which are even older than the other rules which apply to the region.

 

The Arab population under the Palestinian Authority almost all can be traced back within two or most often three generation to having arrived since 1900 and even a greater percentage since 1875 and all since the original arrival of the Zionist Jews. The Arabs arrived largely after the Jews established agriculture and other endeavors. When the Jews established a base economy which provided jobs, the Arabs came to take advantage. Later, the British in conjunction with the French transplanted hundreds and eventually millions of Arabs into the region in which they were supposed to be establishing the Jewish State by making sure there were always a greater number of Arabs, measurably, in order to prevent the Jews declaring their state. This was a disastrous situation when the British blocked nearly all Jews from escaping the Nazis during World War II. Even after the War, the British did all they were capable of to prevent the Jews who had survived the Holocaust from entering Israel until the British pulled out of the region. Despite these efforts, the Jews still established their state and despite the efforts of the United Nations General Assembly to cut their homeland in half, thankfully the Arabs refused that gift expecting to conquer the entirety soon after the British left, Israel was founded in mid-May 1948 with all the lands west of the Jordan River being their state. Since these Arabs were mostly economic refugees and as Jordan also transferred thousands of their citizens into the region they illegally occupied from 1948 through June of 1967, these Arabs can legally under the rules of war be returned to Jordan, some possibly to Syria. Let us go through this step-by-step as events were lain down for history and yet ignored only because Israel is the State of the Jewish People.

 

Originally, back all the way to 1920, soon after World War I and well before World War II and the Holocaust, which is important, the San Remo Conference reached their conclusions leading to the Mandate Systems. This fleshed out the League of Nations Mandate System which assigned regions from the defeated Axis of Powers from World War I to the separate Allied Powers. The British were assigned to make a series of nations which included the Arab state of Iraq and the state of Kurdistan from what is today Iraq. Because the assigned King for Iraq was more pliable concerning oil rights and the demands of J Paul Getty and his designs on the Mosul oil fields, the British reneged on the establishing of Kurdistan and the Kurds had their homeland stolen. The British then took 78% of the remainder of the British Mandate lands to form another Arab state to provide the other son of King Faisal a kingdom to form Transjordan which became Jordan. The British then did everything possible to prevent the formation of the Jewish state caving again to Arab demands, but when the British pulled from the region, Israel declared their independence. The ensuing war left Egypt occupying Gaza and Jordan occupying areas of the Shomron. Gaza has since become ruled by Hamas making it a terror state which is largely condemned by the world, officially. The region of the Shomron which Jordan occupied until June of 1967 was released by Jordan and is the region contested by the Palestinian Authority Arabs. As the vast majority of the Arabs within this region were Jordanian citizens or their offspring, and most arrived since 1900 plus Jordan had illegally annexed the region giving them all citizenship, Israel can rightfully as the liberating power regaining her legal lands is permitted to force the alien population to be sent to be absorbed by the former occupying power of Jordan. This has precedents with the population transfers dislocating the German citizens from lands which were ceded to France and Poland after World War I and the exchange of populations by Pakistan and India when the nation of India was divided into the two separate states and millions of Muslims were transferred into Pakistan while millions of Hindus and Buddhists among others left the region fleeing back into India. There have been transfers concerning Russia and Poland as well as other cases when borders were adjusted while other instances all across the globe are recorded by history. The sole reason this has been prevented in the case of Israel is in order to cause situations by which Israel can be threatened and have its territories slowly stolen being given initially to Arabs and, when those transfers have been exhausted, then to Bedouins, after that to Christians and after that to another and another and another until the Jews no longer have a defendable piece of land as they all live in central Tel Aviv.

 

The entirety of the Arab-Israeli conflict has been managed and manufactured by the powers of the world and will continue for as long as the leadership of Israel is largely so concerned about the opinions of the world than the health of their country. The British showed their true colors almost from the moment they were provided with the mandate to form the Jewish State. They moved from the outset, as mentioned above, to steal away 78% of their Mandate in order to form an Arab state despite this not being actually included in their original Mandate. They did all they were able to prevent the Jews from populating their future homelands while also importing Arabs such that the Jewish population would never become a majority. The British were attempting to do to the Jews exactly what they had already done to the Kurds when taking their land and gifting it to the King of Iraq in exchange for oil rights. Thankfully, Israel did not have any oil deposits so at least J Paul Getty had no desire for the desert and swamp lands which were the wastelands which became Israel. The funding of the Palestinian Authority and UNWRA by European nations and the European Union added to their financing of numerous NGO’s working in concert to eliminate Israel through Arab and world pressures. The United Nations has through any number of votes plus the overt actions of its plethora of organizations including but not limited to the Human Rights Council, UNESCO, UNICEF, Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, UNCTAD, UNIDO and, of course, UNWRA voting to condemn, censor and accuse Israel of any and every conceivable wrongdoing. The world spending such an inordinate amount of their efforts just to scrutinize Israel seeking any crack in its establishment so as to leaver that crack and break its founding and destroy the Jewish State. What is required is for Israel to simply worry about one single form of relations with the rest of the world, whether or not nations desire to trade with Israel and accept the numerous forms of aid and assistance which Israel has to offer. This includes disaster responses for which Israel is one of the foremost providers as the CNN reporter discovered in one of our favorite videos placed below when she discovered the Israeli field hospital in Haiti. Israel was one of the nations to provide assistance to the United States after Katrina and Sandy, two very potent hurricanes. Israel has aided nations all over the world, provided agricultural, water purification, cell communications and electrical power to small villages and tribes throughout Africa and the world. We covered a small amount about this in our article “Israel is the Unique Miracle Nation” which includes a map of some of the places Israeli assistance has visited. Israel climbed into nationhood through a miracle and has fought to remain a nation with more miraculous successes. This is what forced the world to attempt to destroy Israel through stages and allowing groups to nibble away at her sovereignty.

 

 

It is remarkable that the European Union builds villages within the regions which all recognize as belonging to Israel and then despite these villages having no connection to any utilities, no services and are only inhabited briefly for photos to be taken to make-believe these villages are inhabited and then scream when Israel moves to destroy these illegal structures but call for the destruction of entire cities which are in land legally Israeli which are Jewish cities. The United Nations General Assembly joins the Europeans in these efforts but at least does not build these villages, at least not yet. Israel must reach the position that the Jordan River is her eastern border, declare the truth that there is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there never has been any nation called Palestine, Israel fought with Jordan over these lands which Jordan occupied from 1948 to 1967 after which Israel liberated her lands and the Arabs who resided there belong to Jordan and at best could be resident aliens should they remain within the Israeli borders, the world will never accept her as a normal nation, others will love her when she is assisting them while demanding her dissolution the next day and finally that she must take what is rightfully hers while ignoring the world and the racket it will make. The years of the Jews living under the worlds which were foreign to her and where the Jews were always the other have left an indelible shadow over her thinking such that she always worries if she has been accepted and is doing things which the rest of the world will approve. The leadership is almost always looking to the outside world for stroking and being given approvals and good vibes while always being overly sensitive to criticisms and seeking to remain between the lines.

 

Israel will continue to suffer these insults and defamations until her leaders decide that what is most important is not what others believe and say about her but what is best for her future and the health of her people which includes every citizen, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Baha’I, Hindu, Buddhist, Bedouin, Druze and any others who are citizens; and simply ignore what those others say as their opinions are unimportant when compared to the health of Israel. Israeli leadership requires the same change in their perspective of the importance of their view of reality as did the Hebrews, our ancient ancestors who took part in the Exodus from Egypt, when they were sent by Hashem to spend forty years in the desert such that a new generation worthy of receiving and taking on the related challenges of inhabiting the Promised Lands. The current leadership in Israel have too many who have a view which could be relegated to correlating with the ten spies who reported that the Promised Lands were possessed by giants living in cities with towering impenetrable walls while, as back then, a mere two reported that the Promised Lands were fearful of the coming of the Hebrews and were ready to be conquered. After forty years, those two who gave the promising reports were the leaders and the new generation was prepared for the task. Israel will be a very different nation in a mere twenty to thirty years with leaders who will have a far stronger belief in Israel and her rightfulness amongst the nations. This will allow them to shrug off the condemnation from Europe and the United Nations and instead worry about what is best for Israel and let the world howl as they will turn a deaf ear to the caterwauling.
