Why Israel Arab Conflict is Unsolvable

We sometimes have heard that solving the Israel Arab conflict cannot be that difficult if only Israel would sacrifice for peace. We wonder, does sacrifice for peace include returning the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt? That is Israel surrendering an area more than two and three-quarters the size of the nation of Israel itself. Somehow, the world appears to have forgotten this small fact. When Israel made peace with Egypt, Egypt refused to take the return of Gaza and disassociated from the people who had lived under Egyptian rule for almost twenty years before the Six Day War. Perhaps Israel should be thankful that Egypt did not demand that Israel accept the population of the Sinai Peninsula as Egypt really just wanted the oil wells anyway. Then Israel made a peace with Jordan and offered them the return of the “West Bank” (Shomron or Judea and Samaria) and eastern Jerusalem, Jordan refused them both but also disassociated from the Arabs residing there who had Jordanian citizenship, but that was cancelled. A great number of those residing in the area Jordan refused included people forcefully relocated by Jordan across the Jordan River into the region left to Israel. Jordan has refused to accept the return of any part of the people in the Shomron including those they relocated there in order to Arabize the region beyond anything Israel could ignore and so as to cause difficulties for Israel in the future. Then there is Syria with whom Israel is still at war but with whom they had an armistice agreement. That agreement had been breached, broken and shattered by Syrian and Iranian forces firing into Israel with snipers, launching rockets into Israel, flying armed drones over Israel and firing anti-tank missiles at IDF and civilian vehicles on the Golan Heights, yet people demand that Israel return the Golan Heights and change this to all of these projectiles aimed across the northern one-third of Israel at farmers, motorists, towns and cities just as was the case before the Six Day War when Syria owned the region. The difference is that weapons have become more accurate, have increased range, and carry larger warheads which would all but vacate the entire region within Israel, as it would become unlivable. These are the facts which, despite some debate about them, are basically uncontroversial. Finally, there is the demand that Israel returns Palestine to the Arab Palestinians.

Let us start with the last one first as it is the easiest to discuss and the least of the actual problems. When was there this Arab nation of Palestine that Israel stole from these Arabs? Simple answer, it never existed beyond being the name of a region given to it by the Romans when they dispersed the Jews, decided that Judea and Jerusalem were far too Jewish, and changed the names of the province, that is Roman province long before any Arab stepped into these lands and definitely not a nation unto itself. Judea became Syria Palaestina, while Jerusalem was renamed to Aelia Capitolina. The British and League of Nations referred to the region from which Britain carved out Jordan east of the Jordan River and Israel west of the Jordan River was referred to with its Roman nomenclature of Palestine, which was still a region and not a nation and from which two nations were actually carved. There has never been any nation named Palestine and Aelia Capitolina was a provincial capital which was abandoned within the first year as the people left to handle this region return to Damascus and performed their duties from there. Even as late as 1867, as reported in Mark Twain’s writings in “The Innocents Abroad,” or “The New Pilgrims’ Progress,” in the section on his visit to the holy lands, the description was less than flattering and told of a land mostly abandoned to weeds and scrub brush with hardly any inhabitation outside of Jerusalem, and even his commentary about Jerusalem was less than flattering. One can only wonder what Mark Twain would have to say now, just over one-hundred-fifty years later, seeing the Tel Aviv metropolitan region and the others including Jerusalem; they are all a far cry from the desolate little sleepy region where lethargy appeared to be the rule except for a few intrepid farmers, possibly the earliest Zionists who set to work draining swamps, channeling water and irrigating the lands starting farms as soon as they arrived. But that is claimed to have little bearing on the modern situation, because the reasons that these problems exist are not of concern to the world, it is something else.

 

The claim that Israel must sacrifice for peace is ludicrous. There are so many real reasons that peace has not been reached which have nothing to do with Israel past the simple fact that she exists. The Khartoum Resolution of September 1, 1967, and its three no’s, “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel,” has been the Arab position. Arafat, then Abbas, were permitted to negotiate providing they swore to accept the other two no’s and work towards the day when Islam defeats the Jews and Israel is no more. There is a small problem which is stated only in Arabic, a language which the Western media appear incapable of finding a translator, even Google, that any peace would simply be the first peace to be followed soon thereafter by a new round of terrorism, a new set of demands, and a new peace process, which if it should ever reach a peace, would be followed a few months later by another explosion of terror, new demands, peace talks, peace, violent terror, new demands, you get the picture. The aim is stated to destroy Israel in stages if necessary, but the end result is to destroy Israel. The only solution, you could call it the Arab final solution, is for the Jews leaving by whatever means are necessary, including exhuming the dead to take with them, and all of Israel belonging to the Arabs, because that is the way the world works and the Quran demands such. No Arab or Muslim land can ever fall under somebody else ruling it, and most certainly not the accursed Jew. That is the base position from which the Arab world had negotiated since the first day of Israeli existence when the armies of over a half dozen Arab nations poured over the borders, some were already operating in the Arab neighborhoods and farms inside of Israel that morning, and set to destroy all of Israel and every Jew along with it. The Arab war of 1948 was best described by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time who stated, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” His reference was to the Islamic defeat of these two wars, though their victory over the Mongols came after nearly a century of Mongol rule over large parts of their Arabia. That was their intentions then and those are still their intentions now.

 

There is a dirty little secret which most, if not all, the people from the United States State department to the European Union to the numerous European national leaderships, to the co-conspirators at the United Nations to the several United Nations Agencies and virtually every two-faced, double-talking expert on the Middle East do not speak. This little secret is that it is not Israel which is preventing the making of a peace agreement. They know the Arabs turned down half of the lands west of the Jordan River in late November of 1947 when the United Nations offered just such a deal and the Zionist congress agreed but the Arab League steadfastly refused as they were going to wipe those snotty little Jews off the map a few months later, or so they believed. Egypt was offered Gaza and Jordan was offered the West Bank, both declined to retake lands they knew did not belong to them plus they were to be used to destroy Israel as the plan was already hatched. The Arabs were offered over ninety percent with land swaps and Eastern Jerusalem towards the end of the Clinton Presidency and this was refused by Yasser Arafat. The Arabs were offered over ninety percent with land swaps and Eastern Jerusalem towards the end of the George W. Bush Presidency and this was refused by Mahmoud Abbas. The Trump “Deal of the Century,” which century might be how long it will take to formulate, has already been refused by Mahmoud Abbas without seeing the offer. Abbas has all but told President Trump to take a hike and is swearing he will refuse any peace deal which will be presented by President Trump. Well, that is so much for and chance for peace in the immediate future. Wait, you say, how about President Trump working with Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia? Well, Jordan has refused him, twice that we have counted, Egypt has turned him down unceremoniously and in no uncertain terms regarding Gaza, and Saudi Arabia backed away from any agreements they had made when it became a part of the deal that they take in some of the Arab Palestinians.

 

The problem comes down to a simple problem, what to do with the Arab Palestinians, not just those living within Israel but the over five-million so-called Palestinian refugees. These refugees numbers just over six-hundred-thousand in 1949 at the end of the Arab War to Annihilate the Jews which was renamed the Israeli War of Independence so it would appear that Israel started a war for their independence and not they gained it legally and the Arabs attacked with the intent of wiping the lands clean. These refugees had children and unlike any other refugees, these children became refugees. These children had children who had children who have had or some day will have children who will have children and so-on ad infinitum. That is how over three-quarters of a century six-hundred-thousand refugees become over five-million refugees instead of a problem already solved. One need understand that the Arab refugees, far from anything to do with Israel, are not handled under the regular United Nations Refugee Agency, they are handled under the UNRWA, the agency which President Trump ended United States monetary support. The rest of the world jumped up and are supporting them for the time being. This energetic rush to aid anything to harm Israel will cool and UNRWA will be making desperate calls for aid from anywhere and demanding that the United States pay it fair share. You have to love all the uses that the political types get out of the phrase, “pay their fair share.” You hear it about taxes, “We just want the (super) rich to pay their fair share,” or the United Nations and its myriad of agencies whenever the United States defunds them, “We just want the United States, the richest nation in the world, to pay their fair share,” or the newest version, “Making sure foreign investors pay their fair share,” and after any oil spill or ecological disaster we hear about the company which has already suffered a blow to their income with the losses incurred by the event of the ecological disaster, yet we hear, last one, we promise, “We just insist that aggrieved company pay their fair share to clean up the effects of the disaster.”

 

There will be no solution to the Israel Arab Conflict for the foreseeable future. The world will need to be reawakened to the small problem caused by the Quranic promise that the Muslims will rule the world and Islam and the surrender to Allah will become the universal faith which every person on the planet will come to follow. The Muslims, on the strength and timing of the Arabs as they emerged from the Arabian Peninsula and conquered much of the Middle East including the lands under Persian Rule and across northern Africa taking the lands of Egypt and the Berbers, crossed into Europe at Gibraltar and were finally turned back by George the Hammer Martel at the battle of Tours. They took the Levant and were stopped by the imposing walls of Constantinople. The Ottomans made two attempts at Europe with both being turned back at the gates of Vienna with one being accomplished almost completely to the merit of the King of Poland, John III Sobieski, who commanded the Holy Roman Army plus the entirety of the Polish Army leaving his nation unprotected and depending on the promises of the other leaders that they would leave his lands safe. Surprisingly, they kept their word. These were the past attempts by the forces of Islam to conquer the world and turn every knee to bend before Allah. This means that there have been at least three or four attempts by Islam to conquer Europe, but Christianity stood and held. When the Crusaders would take Jerusalem, they often would murder the remaining Muslims and a fair percentage of the Jews. When the Muslims would take Jerusalem, they would murder most of the Christians and a fair percentage of Jews. The number of Jews usually was proportional to the casualties and amount of time and effort was required to take Jerusalem. The Arabs desire taking Jerusalem and making it completely Jew free. They wish to do this to the entirety of Israel. Their plan does not necessarily include any rescue for the Jews. They do not plan on making such necessary. The terrorists scream slogans calling for the eradication of the Jews and the Jewish State. This is their desired solution to the Arab Israel Conflict. They refuse to make peace because their solution does not include peace unless it is rest in peace, and I doubt their Jewish victims will even get that if they were ever to succeed. The Israelis know the score but the world would rather pretend that the Jews are the problem. Our best guess is old habits are very hard to break, and much of the world has been blaming the Jew for every misfortune for so long that they just simply fell back on the stock reason that there is a problem, the Jew did it. The only thing the Jews did was reclaim their ancestral homelands, the lands and city, Jerusalem, which they have prayed over, prayer for, prayed about almost every single day of their lives. We have been saying Jerusalem, next year we will celebrate this day in Jerusalem. Even a recalcitrant Jew knows the desire for next year in Jerusalem. Now that it can be right now in Jerusalem, we, as Jews, are not returning to dreams when we hold the prize in our hands. That goes for Jerusalem and every part of Eretz Yisroel.
