As the World Spirals into Tighter Knots of Hatred

 

There is no denying that the world has become more coarse and hate-filled. Leading the groups of hatred is the usual, anti-Semitism. Oh, wait, most of these are not anti-Semitic as they merely discuss and are critical of Israeli policies and the treatment of the Palestinians and the denial of their basic rights. That is not actually anti-Semitism, it is merely honest criticism.

 

Really? Merely honest criticism you claim. May we ask if you have any criticism for any nation other than Israel? Is it only Israel which is deserving of your selective scorn? Well, let us look a little closer at the main complaints which are spread about Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. If you are willing to look at these claims from another angle and try to have an open mind, maybe we can realize some valid points.

 

One of the biggest complaints comes down to the fact that the Palestinian Arabs have not voted in a general election since 2005 despite Israel holding three elections since then. Well, you have a valid point that the Israelis have had three elections and the Palestinian Arabs have not voted in a general election since 2005. Have you ever bothered to find out why they have not voted in any general elections since 2005? Well, despite Israeli elections, the Palestinian Authority has cancelled elections for their Parliament and for President at every opportunity when elections were scheduled. Every time some problem has cropped up making election impossible. One of the favorite reasons is because the Palestinian Authority controls areas in Judea and Samaria and Hamas controls Gaza and they just do not get along that well. Another difficulty which may have some bearing on the lack of elections is that Mahmoud Abbas knows that he would fail in retaining his position as President of the Palestinian Authority which could lead to his being removed as Chairman of the PLO and the leader of the Fatah Party which gives him the triple crown of power over the Palestinian Arabs in the areas Fatah controls. Meanwhile, in Gaza there are two groups, Hamas (often working with Iran despite being mostly Sunni or Muslim Brotherhood) and Islamic Jihad (another Shia arm of Iran in their threats upon Israel) who have an arrangement which allows Hamas, the stronger of the two, to choose whomever they desire to be the leader and head of the government. Currently that position is held by Yahya Sinwar (the former commander of the Hamas military wing and proof that there really is no difference between the military and political wings except in the eyes of most Europeans). Since the position is by appointment of a ruling council whose members are largely a secret, elections are completely unnecessary as the leadership and support are appointed positions. And talking of Israeli elections, the Palestinian Arabs are not Israelis and thus are not a party to Israeli elections and just as foreigners do not vote in other national elections (such as the French do not vote in Italian elections and the Italians do not vote in French elections and neither Italians nor French vote in the American elections). So, the Palestinians have not voted in elections since 2005 is because their governing powers have decided that elections are simply too bothersome and thus none are being held.

 

One last comparative statement and then we will move along. Just as Mexicans and Canadians do not vote in American elections and Americans do not vote in Canadian or Mexican elections; Israelis do not vote in Palestinian Arab elections, be they under the auspices of Islamic Jihad, Hamas or Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Arabs do not vote in Israeli elections. We know what the next accusation will be, so you admit that the Palestinian Arabs cannot vote in Israeli election. That is true. So, you admit that Arabs are not permitted to vote. Everyone see the logical leap making one huge assumption, namely that all Arabs are Palestinians and thus all Arabs are denied the vote. This is the fallacy which is used all the time to prove Israel denies Arabs the vote. The slick slight of language equates all Arabs with Palestinian Arabs but Palestinian Arabs across the Arab world are denied the right to vote even if elections were held. There is a group of Arabs which make up almost one-quarter of the population and who do vote in Israeli elections as well as run for office and sit in the Knesset, the Israeli parliament and work in every profession in Israel (technically even Rabbi as there are Arab Jews in Israel who were or their relatives were thrown out of their Arab homelands within the first decade and a half after Israel was founded with the vast majority of these Arab Jews coming to Israel). The Israeli Arabs who are Muslim or Christian or any other religion all get to vote in Israeli elections as they too are citizens of the State of Israel. What many find surprising is to learn that according to the conventions under which Israel was provided to be founded by the League of Nations and the Mandate System, they were not required to allow anyone other than Jews the vote. They were required to provide economic rights, religious rights, social rights, humanitarian rights and virtually any other form of rights with one exception, they did not need to provide political rights to those within their borders who were not Jews. This was not and obviously is not Israeli law, but it was one option permitted the Jewish State which they decided not to adopt. Thus, the non-Jews in Israel have the exact same rights as the Jews and in some instances it appears they have rights denied most Jews, but these are not consequential to our discussion.

 

But this article is not going to rehash these arguments which are the backbone of the BDS Movement and are made entirely of fallacies. Instead, we are going to look at the rise in anti-Semitism and the concurrent rise of violence against Jews across Europe and in North America. The targeting of Jews has been spreading around the world as part and parcel of the leading wave of Islamist influences. In the United States it became policy in 1965 under the Hart Cellar Act. Under this legislation, immigration was switched from predominately European immigrants to areas which had less immigration previously which turned out to be used as a means for bringing Muslims to America as the preferred and target immigrants which were to be preferred. Dropped were requirements that one need learn English; any language would do as these special immigrants were to be placed together in special cities. This piece of legislation was heavily supported and all but personally walked through the Congress by Senator Ted Kennedy. The special immigration of these minorities who were minorities both as their racial definition as well as their religious preferences. The Arabs were defined as people of color despite the majority being as Caucasian as the average Norwegian. This was done for numerous reason amongst which was the programs which they would qualify for as people of color and thus an automatic minority and other benefits also permitted the government to provide them with housing thus by some miracle they were slowly introduced into the population centered by their nation of origin each resulting eventually in their becoming the plurality if not majority in numerous Congressional districts. Thus, there is now in the United States Congress Representative Rashida Tlaib who was elected from a district within Detroit but has claimed that she represents a constituency quite removed from those Detroit, Michigan neighborhoods which elected her to Congress as she has claimed that she is the Palestinian representative in the Congress. Take along side Representative Tlaib the other extrovert anti-Israel, anti-Semite Ilhan Omar as well as many anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic members of the Black Congressional Caucus and their ever present apologists such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi plus Steny Hoyer and there is the makings of an uncontroversial beginnings of an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel block within the United States Congress which has been growing over the past seventy years to the point where it is becoming a danger for both the Jews of the United States and all of the people of Israel, Jew and Gentile alike.

As if the growing hatred for Israel and the Jews within the Congress and add to this the seemingly ingrained anti-Israel activities and positions taken by what appears to be a majority of those who control the State Department and add in the trends following the same or similar trends across the nation and in Europe on the university and college campuses and the future is looking very bleak. According to, in English literature, the character of Prometheus speaks the phrase: Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad in the poem “The Masque of Pandora,” and we are witnessing such madness spreading through the world’s populations. This is becoming increasingly observable in Western civilization which is actually very sad. Looking back throughout history, one notices that every great empire began their downward slide leading to their eventual collapse, every one of them began having streaks of anti-Semitism which marked their turning point. This should serve as a warning to the developed world that this sickness has always led to disaster for every civilization where the ills of anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish State feelings sets in. One would hope that people are capable of learning from history, but this is happening again and, in every country, there is at least one party, often two with one far right and the other far left, willing to accommodate the influx of an anti-Semitic and often anti-Israel group of immigrants. These political operatives appear determined to change the demographics and accept this poison simply because these immigrants will elect their candidates. They are going this route in the name of gaining power but they are trading their souls for power, never a good idea as it will always lead to ruin.

 

There are those who claim that there is little to worry about because these anti-Semites and anti-Israel individuals are too small a minority to really cause any problems. That is ignoring history as this always starts out with a vocal and determined minority who over time and using the same methods gain sufficient strength to seize power and destroy the target nation from within. The difference this time is that the efforts are not to transform one nation but to transform entire continents. The Arab world already controls the equivalence of an entire continent under their control now though it is not unified at this time. All it would take is the right charismatic leader with what will be taken as the plan and the Arab world could easily be brought to congeal around such a person. If this person also takes Europe along with the Arab world and then you have a heavily armed body of nations brought together in an effort to then destroy Israel on their way to world conquest. What the world needs to awaken to is that Islam still is insistent that they are to rule the world and they are currently making their third or fourth drive for doing exactly that. We understand that the Western World which has fought two world wars has given up on the concept of one leader ruling the world unless it is through the United Nations. That in and of itself is frightening enough when one realizes that the General Assembly and all the disparate agencies of the United Nations are controlled by the Group of 77, a coalition of one-hundred-thirty-four developing nations which are led and willingly follow the Arab and Islamic world to the point that they chose Mahmoud Abbas to be their chairperson. This group has proven to be highly antagonistic towards Israel and have tended to largely vote as if they were a single unit. This makes them the gatekeepers at the United Nations.

The world is teetering on a knife’s edge with another great world sweeping conflagration waiting for when the world topples from that perch. Such a war could start over any small item just as World War I was initiated over an assassination, or it could begin as a plan by even a single nation deciding they are ready to enact their plan for domination and world conquest such as World War II began. Add in China, which many a far eastern expert has stated they have been building their military around a single concept, the ability to win the war with the United States for control of the Pacific and then the world. Be it China or Islam (namely Iran), and either way the world cannot afford to pay the price of such wars. When part of the plan is to use EMP weapons and you are talking about the mass extermination of the nation so struck, and should anyone be so foolish as to use such a device on the United States and the world would witness mass starvation with only the nations capable of feeding themselves surviving. Additionally, there are those who claim that it is entirely conceivable that nuclear weapons will be used to eradicate entire nations and then there would be the counter attack which would devastate the initiator of such an exchange. The resulting contamination by nuclear fallout and much of the world would suffer catastrophic population losses leading to potentially our world reverting to the technological level of the mid seventeenth century with all the wonders of such a brutal life spent at subsistence farming for most of the world population. One can only question is it worth destroying the world and any future it might potentially reach with the coming advancements in exchange for ruling over an impoverished and technologically reverted world. Some of those seeking to spread their rule to the world would tell you that if that was the result, then it was the will of their divine being. The one good thing is that should you reside within a few hundred miles of any major population center, which is most of Europe, both coasts of the United States, the entire Great Lakes region and the coastlines of much of the world, then your suffering will be minimal as the initial exchange of nuclear missiles will make quick work of such regions. We can only hope that sane minds will take over before the insanity gets too far, but in the meantime, pray for the Messiach as such an intervention is the best hope for avoiding the follies of man.
