The Jordan Death Penalty Conundrum and Israel

 

Jordanian law has a very strict, irreversible, strident punishment for any Arab or Muslim who dares to sell land of any sort to a Jew. The punishment for committing such an act of daring-do is death. Where Palestinian courts have sentenced an unknown number of Arabs for selling land to a Jew, also referred to as ‘the enemy’ in another law; there are the Jordanian laws, which change usually becoming more stringent, as well as laws passed by the Palestinian legislators who have made any number of laws which have referenced selling lands, homes, apartments, facilities, and other references to properties which all carry a sentence of death. Often an Arab brought to trial for selling land to a Jew, the enemy, a middle man making a purchase for a Jew, any non-Palestinian and whatever other laws they can find even to accuse them of blaspheme guarantees that a death penalty will be sentenced for multiple offenses. The catch is that even after the courts have sentenced an individual to death, the penalty cannot be legally carried out until the President, currently Mahmoud Abbas who is serving in the eleventh or twelfth year of his four year term, has to approve the execution. Thus far it is assumed that President Abbas has never approved an execution though the BBC claims that he has approved three executions. What is beyond ridiculous is that Israel has refused to apply Israeli civil law and has left the areas of Judea and Samaria under military law but has at least annexed and applied Israeli law to East Jerusalem. The Palestinian Authority has, along with many in the international community even beyond the Arab and Muslim worlds including many European nations, the European Union and beyond, refuses to recognize Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem. This means that in East Jerusalem Jordanian laws no longer applies and an Arab is permitted to sell land, an apartment or any property to anybody they choose. The drawback is that the Palestinian Courts will still hold a trial and convict you sentencing you to death and send that order to Abbas for his approval. The truth is that once one is even suspected of selling property to a Jew, even if only because an investigation has been opened, they are at a much higher risk of non-judicial execution, often at the hands of the Palestinian Security Forces who in many ways are the police as well as the supervising authority. We here at BTC have no doubt that at some point, should things continue as they have over the past fifty years, then soon the Palestinian courts will be convicting Arabs who have lived in Israel and are and have been Israeli citizens all their lives as the Palestinian Authority does claim that all the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea belongs to them, the entirety of the 22% of the British Mandate lands which were not granted to Jordan for the initial Arab state in the Palestinian territories under the British Mandate. Why does Israel allow the continued application of such prejudicial law which targets Jews solely for exclusion from property transactions?

 

The entirety of this discussion and the institutionalized bigotry at the United Nations, within the European Union and many of its individual nations and throughout the NGO’s professing to be human rights enforcers extreme who have found that all of human suffering and every single human rights violations are perpetrated by Israel depends on a single premise, that being that before November 29, 1947, nothing existed and the world as we know it and all the nations of the Earth came into being at that time just as the United Nations was violating Article 80 of their own Charter and all the laws, treaties, conventions and other international forums which it recognized and made inclusive within the United Nations framework and took the proclamations made by the League of Nations resolving the results from World War I and identifying national borders throughout Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa. The reason that the world has to begin on November 29, 1947, is because on that date the United Nations took the remaining 22% of British Mandate lands and divided it in what they called an even patrician with half for the Jews and half for the next Arab State carved from the original British Mandate after the 78% land grab where the British issued the Churchill White Paper which tore that land from what would have been the Jewish State to satisfy a promise to the Arab Hashemites to a homeland in return for their assistance in World War I. The White Paper left the Jewish State to be founded on the lands west of the Jordan River but that was unfair cried the Arabs. The Jews are taking all of our lands, we demand more. So the United Nations took a strong stand and insisted that the Arabs settle for half of the remaining land and allow the Jews the remainder which was divided so the Jewish lands was predominantly Negev Desert (see map below). The Arabs took one look at this United Nations General Assembly Resolution, a suggestion which is only valid if accepted by both parties, and immediately rejected it protesting that it was unfair, they wanted it all, period. They swore they would annihilate the Jewish State the moment dawn broke on its first day of existence.

 

UN Palestine Partition Versions of 1947 and included within UN General Assembly Resolution 181 which was rejected by the Arab League negating the UN Resolution as if either side rejects such a UN Resolution which is non-binding, it invalidates the entire agreement rendering it mute from that point forward. Jerusalem was to be managed by a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) set up consisting of an international groups most likely to be rotated. This offer was accepted by the Zionist Congress but having any General Assembly Resolution accepted by one side and rejected by the other is simply one hand clapping, useless.

Their threat was real and over half a dozen Arab armies and militias invaded Israel the morning of May 15, 1948, at dawn, the first sunrise over the Jewish State. Because the Arab League and all representatives for the Arab people rejected the compromise put forward by the United Nations General Assembly, Resolution 181 was voided as if it had never existed. The above map is now always flashed by Arab League members as the actual borders and that Israel attacked the Arabs and gained lands in 1948. The reality is that the World War I decisions which were validated and made enforceable by the United Nations, an obligation and not a suggestion, are the rules which apply and have applied since the start in the 1920’s and is the reason everybody starts in 1947 or even 1948 proposing a lie. The reality is Israel was the Jewish State west of the Jordan River and Jordan was the Arab State east of the Jordan River (see map below). This made the Gaza Strip captured by Egypt as well as Judea and Samaria (West Bank) captured by Jordan were both illegally held lands as they were gained by a war of aggression. Israel responded to the massing of armies on her border by Egypt and Syria in late May and into June of 1967 by attacking a day before intelligence reported the attack was scheduled by President Nasser. Lebanon joined almost immediately and Jordan began a debate and mobilized their forces while Israeli leaders pleaded for them to reconsider telling them the reports on television and radio by Egypt and Syria of great advances towards Tel Aviv were false, lies, and propaganda and that they were being decimated on all fronts. Jordan ignored and assaulted Western Jerusalem forcing Israel respond by diverting troops headed for the Sinai Peninsula and Jordan was pushed back beyond the Jordan River. Israel had liberated the Gaza Strip as well as Judea and Samaria (West Bank) while also gaining the Golan Heights and the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula gaining one bank for the Suez Canal. As these territories were gained in a defensive reaction to impending massive attacks on three borders, the lands gained could be legally retained or a good amount retained providing a case can be made that the new borders would provide greater defense for the nation. Israel used this to annex the Golan Heights from which Syria used to train snipers by having them shoot farmers working in their fields in the Israeli Galilee north. Israel could have retained the entire Sinai Peninsula as the Suez Canal would make for a good defensive front or they could have retained half the Sinai Peninsula holding the mountains and the passes through them. Instead, Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula in its entirety in exchange for a peace treaty with Egypt while Egypt refused to request the Gaza Strip. Israel offered Judea and Samaria to Jordan who refused the area ceding it to Israel. That should have been the end and the map below would have been the result but the world demand that Israel be made to fall all the way back to the original 1949 Armistice Lines which were the line defining Israeli borders before the June 1967 Six Day War. This is unheard of for any nation other than the United States in the latter half of the Twentieth Century. Somehow it is doubtful the United States would want to keep the areas of Europe and the Pacific and Asia they fought within during World War II. Israel would be well served in retaining the lands up to the banks of the Jordan River.

 

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

British Mandate as prescribed division between Arab State of Jordan and Jewish State of Israel

 

The first cry which comes from every front is to repeat the big lie that Israel retaining all of Judea and Samaria is impossible because then Israel will have to choose between being Jewish or being Democratic. The added population would only become a threat in twenty to forty years depending on growth rate of populations which you choose, and if you take the most recent and have trends continue one finds that Israel remains Jewish into the foreseeable future. Some claim that this creates a problem because the Arab refugees in the camps who have languished there since 1948 would be left in these camps indefinitely and must be relocated into Israel. This is the reason these Arabs have been kept in these camps which resemble apartment blocks more than refugee camps with tents. These unfortunate people have been retained in the camps for the reason of overwhelming Israel with these refugees and their descendants. The Palestinian Arab refugees are the sole refugees in the world whose status is passed on to their children and their children and their children presumably forever. What has been forgotten is that there were almost one-million Jews forced from the Arab and Muslim world between the founding of Israel and 1960 who relocated into Israel where they were moved into the general population as rapidly as was possible. These Jews now make up close to half the population of Israel and makes another claim a lie. We hear the Jews need to return to Russia and Europe where they all came from. Well, what about the other half who came from Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Algeria, Tunisia, Yemen, Qatar, Kuwait and other Arab and Muslim nations. Does anybody honestly believe that these nations would take their Jews back? When they refuse, then where do the Jews they rejected and their children go? And those Israelis who have one parent from European or Russian lineage and the other from the Middle East or North Africa? Have a lottery sending half to Europe and the other half to where when the Arab and Muslims refuse them? The Palestinian Arab refugees were being absorbed by the nations where the camps are located but when the PLO was founded in 1964, Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas with the rest of the leaders as well as the Soviet Union all demanded these Arabs be returned to and kept in camps so they could be used to inundate Israel and vote the Jews into the sea.

 

The last item that everyone ignores is that the terms of the Mandates and all the other treaties, conferences et. al. demand that while the Jewish State, Israel, must respect the property rights, the right to work, education civil and religious rights of their Arab peoples, they do not have to extend political rights to the Arab population. That means they do not have to make them full Israeli citizens and could allow the Arabs to have semi-autonomous regions where they rule themselves but Israel retains the right and responsibility for security and defending those lands. The Arabs could be given rights in places to participate in local elections but not in national elections. There are numerous solutions all of which start with applying Israeli law over all the lands and put an end to using Jordanian laws. This would allow Arabs to sell their land and seek a new life possibly with relatives in Canada or relatives in Egypt or anywhere between. This would bring to an end the enslavement of the Palestinian Arabs by threatening their lives if they wish to sell their lands and move. As things stand now, every Palestinian Arab can and many are being forced to remain despite desiring to sell their lands, even if they were to sell to another Arab as the Palestinian Authority and Hamas both desire having as many Arabs remain within what might eventually become Israel as a deterrent against Israeli efforts to purchase much of the lands from Arabs eager and willing to sell and start a new life elsewhere. This freedom to relocate is denied them by leaders who are stealing their future in every way conceivable. Spread fair laws, allow people to use their lands to their best advantage and get the terror fronts off their necks. The worst deprivation in the Arab world outside Syria and the war zones is the life-crippling internment of Arab Palestinians just to spite Israel and their leadership’s willingness to deprive them of a better and free future through imprisoning them in camps or in neighborhoods where cronyism and embezzlement are standards of governance. Even with these problems, the Palestinian Arabs have one of the highest standards of living in the Arab world, though their standard of living is far below that of Israeli Arabs. How often have you heard those truths? You do not hear that the Israeli Arabs have a good life and the Palestinians are all but enslaved by their own people and their own dictatorial leaders. In Syria Bashir al-Assad first used nerve gas on a Palestinian camp and first used barrel bombs on that same Palestinian camp. The Palestinian camps in Syria were bombarded for week after week and in most cases little was left standing. These camps which consisted of cement apartment blocks were levelled almost to the ground and made Aleppo look like a nice place to live at those times. Now nowhere in Syria seems like a nice place to live outside some Druze mountain villages. Even the Kurdish regions have become an intolerable war zone with the Turkish Air Force and Army doing everything in their power to murder even the youngest of the children and destroy all of the Kurdish lands. That is how Turkey is fighting in Syria, telling the world they are fighting the Islamic State when they are making the world safe for the Islamic State as the Kurds were one of the most effective groups fighting the Islamic State. Just another little black and white lie printed in your morning newspapers. Just another brick knocked from in the wall.

Abbas and the Trail of Tears To and From the United Nations

 

Mahmoud Abbas, the self-appointed Emperor of the Palestinians, has once again come to the United Nations sobbing his people’s story of woe and demanding that the United Nations immediately provide them with recognition of statehood and simultaneously demand Israel remove every trace of their existence, remove her security and military presence everywhere beyond the Green Line. He is also demanding the United Nations send forces to protect his ‘nation’ from Israeli aggressions. It is the same old demand being recycled demanding that the General Assembly insist that the Security Council set a deadline of one year for negotiations to be completed and a treaty reached between Israel and his Palestinian Authority settling the borders, responsibilities and whatever else such that a Palestinian State be set into motion or else the United Nations enforce his maximalist demands for a settlement on Israel. Again we have Abbas demanding Israel negotiate with a gun to their heads and grant him everything he demands or make offers which include bribes in order to get any form of compromise or else face international troops forcing Israel to surrender every last demand he can think to place upon the Israelis which starts with the surrender of all lands beyond the 1949 Armistice positions demarked and set which are known as the Green Line. That begs the question as to why Abbas or any of his criminal consortium would ever accept any offer when the result of refusing to negotiate in good faith would produce the world handing you everything you could legitimately desire by simply refusing any offer. This is his attempting to internationalize the entire imbroglio hoping to have the world impose his version of a peace treaty and further place troops along the border to protect his launching of missiles into Israel all the while demanding Israel now surrender the remaining lands he claims from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. This is Mahmoud Abbas’s idea and perception of ending the occupation, but is he correct.

 

 

Abbas Asking as Politely as He is Capable

Abbas Asking as Politely as He is Capable
Arms Outstretched as if to Grab His Victim
And Strangle the Life Out of Them Slowly

 

 

The catch is that International Law does not necessarily abide by public opinions as Abbas is hoping he could force some court to decide in his favor that Israel is occupying lands which he claims belong to some Arab entity simply because the majority of the dictatorial regimes which comprise the General Assembly happen to also harbor anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli feelings and would grant Abbas and gang all of Israel as if their opinions amount to anything. The problem which Israel will very likely be facing is a concerted effort between Abbas and the Arab World, at least those still standing, and the organization of anti-Western World nations in the General Assembly in supporting his demands and also not receiving assistance from the United States in the form of their veto power in the Security Council. But even without the United States veto power there are four other nations with such power, Russia, China, Britain and France. Let us look at each one individually.

 

The first obvious one to consider would be those who by their nature would benefit from Israel being coerced into their camp would be Russia and especially if it would give Putin the opportunity of rubbing it in President Barack Hussein Obama’s face that Russia upheld the side of Zionism, Israel, and most Jews against the blatant deceits and deception which make up the machination of one Mahmoud Abbas. Should Putin actually persuade Israel to enter into the Russian orbit rather than that of the United States, Russia could gain some military and other advantages from the Israeli software and other scientific advances which may end up being shared by the two nations. Still, Russia would realize that any gains would be short lived as the United States is scheduled to have elections for a new President next year and the new President and their administration being formed and operating on all cylinders by March and thus then able to grab Israel back from Russian influences. Depending on the perceived sincerity of the United States President would necessarily need be measured before leaping at any opportunity as Israel has started to wane amongst even Jewish voters and as the remaining Israel supporters are Evangelical Christians who would never support a liberal Democrat candidate and thus would not really present a positive force for the Democrats should they retain the White House and be left with no real option other than supporting the Republican Party if they were to take the White House. This would necessarily mean that Russia would have little to gain outside of Israeli gratitude and the obligation of Israel sharing information about such things as terror threats or operations to take down Russian airliners or other threats. It would not be a complete surprise to learn that such is already a working part of some agreement between Russia and Israel though such would be kept as a very well-guarded secret.

 

Following this order we must now consider China. Almost everything said above about Russia goes double for China simply to be registered as a political coup over the United States. China may have further reasons to support Israel as the two are good trading partners. The one item China offers that would be beyond any Russian offer is that China is presumably ascendant and as such could offer a more enhanced set of future relations. China also has a larger middle class which is growing and will present a viable market as long as the economic bubbles in the Chinese economic picture do not explode in their faces causing a panic by the government and thus the stifling clamps coming down from on high of the Politbureau placing the suffocating conditions eventually always resulting from central control of an economy and over the markets which operate best with the least government interference as profit is one of the greatest motivators in life. Still, China would have a considerable plus in their developing consumer market well beyond anything the Russians would be able to provide.

 

Then there is Britain without whom much of this mess would not be necessary. That aside, the British government is currently leaning right and conservative but Israel is a very contentious issue within the British Isles. Any government supporting Israel over the Arab causes could face considerable losses at the polls and thus suffer greatly at the next set of elections. The British are also very dependent on oil from Saudi Arabia as well as other sources. Should it appear that supporting Israel would necessarily have a downside with the natural losses in the polls, it is doubtful that any British help is coming against such hints. Further, Britain does not have a history of being necessarily supportive of Israel or Jewish interests in general. Perhaps it was their singular moment of conscience which produced the Balfour Declaration as she has had little additional support for the Jewish State. Adding in their history which was derived largely by their administration of the British Mandate in such a manner as to support the Arab side in virtually all items where the British were not truly neutral, and it is because of this adherence to neutrality which would in times result in upholding sides in opposition to Jewish and Zionist interests. Still, Israel may be well served to work alongside the British in other areas having mutual interests. It all comes down to this, who can best provide for the future of Great Britain and her future. That very well could be the British as only time will tell.

 

That brings us to France who is right now rather seeing Israel in a much more favorable light than a month ago. The reason for the turning of France to side with Israel more closely would be better put as identifying with the Israeli position was the horrific terror strike which murdered one-hundred-twenty-nine with another three-hundred-fifty-two injured. This horrific carnage being launched at the seat of power that Paris, France has been and always will continue to be horrified peoples from all over the world though not so in the Arab world where candies and sweet cakes were handed out and people were dancing in the streets. The French are currently sensitive to the pressures Israel has faced daily for over sixty-five years. Additionally, the French government has turned to Israel for guidance and training their security forces to provide them with the kind of things to look for and what should not draw as much attention. Will this heightened state of sensitivity last? In one way, fortunately, no. People need to feel safe in their day-to-day lives or the society would grind slowly to a halt. So, yes, currently the French people are in an elevated state of awareness and more likely to identify with Israel, but that will not last and the question is what will come after? Will there existing residual bond between the French people and government with Israel? What new policies might come of this? And lastly, will this make for another Veto vote in the Security Council.

 

The end result is that unless some major power is planning on sending troops, even a Security Council Resolution replete with Chapter Seven authorizing for the use of force would not be appetizing as the troops would be facing off with the IDF which would not be an enticing offer even for the United States or other Western power. The situation would be unappetizing for the IDF as well, but they would defend the nation of Israel even if they may rue the day that such becomes necessary. There is one item that would need clarification, exactly what is the claim Abbas represents for which he demands United Nations support and troops? What documentation can he present? The problem Mahmoud Abbas would find is that there is an occupation and it is not the one he claims exists. One would hope he does not take the idea that Israel is an occupying power too seriously as it does not hold up on further scrutiny. Yes, we realize Mahmoud Abbas has reams and reams of General Assembly and NGO and nations’ intents to recognize Palestine which are all predicated on his arrival at an agreed upon border which they can recognize. Abbas is going to find things get a bit sticky and tangled. The problem is that without an actual border supported by international law, Abbas has no standing unless Israel grants him a standing, without a delineated and defined border he has nothing to demand as he would have no defined land upon which to be protected and no state by definition as put forth by the Treaty of Westphalia and the Montevideo Convention. These set the definition for a viable and recognizable state and the Palestinians have none of the requirements. Further, by the San Remo Convention, the Treaty of Sèvres, Israel has a defined border which with the Churchill White Paper Israel’s eastern border, the one Mahmoud Abbas claims to contend as under debate, is defined very clearly as the Jordan River. United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 is invalid and meaningless as it was rejected by the Arab league and rendered forever voided by the multi-nation assault on the State of Israel on the first day of her existence. In none of the wars Israel has endured to survive, none of them were with any nation called Palestine and if you wish a war between Palestine and Israel just keep pushing and that day will eventually come to be. Lastly, and potentially most important, there is an occupation going on in much of the lands known as Judea and Samaria and it is the so-called Palestinian population as they have no claim on the lands and are permitted to remain by the good graces and kindnesses of the Israeli government and peoples. You want a few questions you can answer which will clarify this point.

1) Who provides the water system for this area?
2) Who provides the electricity?
3) Who will be defending these areas when the Islamic State decides to cross the Jordan River?
4) Who holds treaties and international agreements which all come into play under Article 80 of the United Nations?
5) Who granted you the presumed claim to these lands?
6) Who did Jordan sign a treaty with to end any potential for a restarting of hostilities and at that time surrendered all claims to the lands Jordan refers to as the West Bank and Israel knows by the names of Judea and Samaria?
7) Before the Six Say War of 1967, what were these lands considered by every nations of the world with the exceptions of Britain and Pakistan?
8) Since the land was illegally occupied, if Jordan ever were to have granted their claims to these lands to some PLO, what makes them legally claimed then by anybody other than the liberating power?
9) You claim Israel is an Apartheid State yet there are Arabs in the Knesset and as sitting judges and even Ambassadors for Israel while you insist that any lands you hold be free of Jews and uncomfortable and soon to be just as unaccommodating for Christians, so who are the real Apartheid system?
10) Do you have any questions?

The truth is obvious and the unfortunate thing is the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), and any other names the leaders of the kleptocracy which demands your children be sacrificed for the better good of the society, just as the worshippers of Baal sacrificed their subject’s children to their idolatrous god for the good of society, has the world really devolved that much? Such a realization is so saddening that it robs us of worlds to describe such a situation. As Jews we had hoped that there would be no more Amalekites after the Third Reich and their successor for subjugating their society but now we know there is another daemon needing to be struck down for the evil it oozes and contaminates all it touches. The time is near when the people of Israel will have had all the murders and injured innocents and finally correct that horrific mistake made by General Moshe Dayan when he allowed the Waqf to remain in place as he mistakenly took the Waqf and the rest of the vile serpents for actual caring, loving and open-minded individual human beings, we now know better. The thing that the Israelis will ultimately find most detestable about the Palestinian Arabs is that you sacrificed your future, your children and your legitimacy for nothing as at any time you could have had your so-called state, in 1948 and any time since either from Jordan pre June 1967 and Israel afterwards had you been at all reasonable.

 

 

Ba’al is hungry for your sacrifice Who will be the Fortunate Child to Shield the Vulnerable Soldier the Special Child to be Gifted to Ba’al So the Tribe Can Receive the Bounties Promised by Ba’al For Your Small Children Sacrificed

Ba’al is hungry for your sacrifice
Who will be the Fortunate Child to
Shield the Vulnerable Soldier the
Special Child to be Gifted to Ba’al
So the Tribe Can Receive the Bounties
Promised by Ba’al For Your
Small Children Sacrificed

 

 

When children are sacrificed for the better good of the society be it with murderous suicide belts, sent with knives to stab people until stopped, used as a human berm from which to fire, be they locked on rooftops to prevent bombings, when gathered around rocket launchers as protection, simply using their corpses as your media assault on your enemy or given the plastic key to paradise, wrapped tightly in a blanket and then sent to walk across minefields in order to clear it for your troops or any other high-risk likely fatal attack simply for propaganda or to save troops at children’s lives is as if you sacrificed children to Ba’al to please an angry god in order to get rain for your crops.

 

In conclusion; I guess it is difficult to be reasonable when you do not so much desire your own state; you want our state destroyed, Never Again! You do not desire a future for your peoples, you desire an end to my people as well, Never Again! You do not desire an equal balance of sharing and living in peace because you want only death and if you cannot murder every Jew then you sacrifice your young and old alike in the pursuit of murdering every Jew, Never Again! Just in case you missed it, let me make our position clear, Never Again! Never Again! And Never Again!

Who Leads the Free World?

 

The United States has for the time abrogated their right to be the leader of the free world. Despite the United States military being the most capable and well-armed and trained that the world has ever witnessed, they have been relegated to sentry duty and policing their own areas and otherwise been retreating from the world scene. The rumors that President Obama has recognized his error and is about to send some troops to fight against the Islamic State is but fifty troops who are not to engage beyond being spotters for air strikes and possibly performing training the indigenous troops will only cause the Islamic State to shift their positions more often, set up more dummy camps which look and sound on radio chatter as if they are an actual base and also doing a similar thing with tank formations in order to get the United states to waste their ordinance striking decoys just as was done in the Balkans.

 

Where next to look? Europe might be a logical place when one judges solely by history, but after World War II the United States basically neutered the Europeans such that their navies basically were relegated to the strength to perform coastal patrols and little more and their armies were basically reduced such that to field an effective army sized assault would take a combined force of much of the European Union nations which would lead to numerous other problems such as unit cohesion and command and control protocols and division of risk and other minutia some of which would still be important. Oddly enough the two nations in the free world who might have the resources militarily might be Canada and Australia but both currently have governments which would preclude their taking such grand risks. India has a respectable sized military but their equipment and training would likely need upgrading and the time to teach their commanders throughout the ranks how to utilize the features of modern command and control with which warfare becomes more effective and individual units with the right support made available in a timely manner and knowing how to anticipate such requirements through analysis would take quite some time. Much of the rest of the world are beyond consideration simply due to their voting records in the General Assembly which also would make a number of Europeans suspect as well. If one were to record all the votes taken in the past seventy-five years in the United Nations General Assembly one of the countries, the very few and possibly only nation, that had voted nearly if not perfect with the United States is Israel.

 

There are a few others which vote most often with the United States both in the Security Council and in the General Assembly. Those are Canada, Czech Republic, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Panama, and Palau. Together the army they could raise even if the rest of the European Union nations were added as well as Australia, Japan, India and the Philippines and your fieldable force would not exactly be formidable. The only nations to actively challenge United States President Barack Obama and the rest of the nations in backing the horrific Iran nuclear deal, which guarantees Iran developing and becoming a nuclear armed state in approximately an even dozen years should they obey the terms and if they do not obey the terms and simply go as fast as they are able then, by this time next year probably the Iranians will have produced three to ten deliverable weapons depending on how much Highly Enriched Uranium they have already stored at some undisclosed location plus the amounts they can produce running all their centrifuges running full-speed in long cascades all the time. But wait, it could be worse and in many ways it already is.

 

There are other major problems around the globe and more specifically across the Arab world of the Middle East and extending through Northern Africa (MENA). Taking the lead in this troubled region are Syria and Libya, not a total surprise. Another contender would have been Egypt if not for the secondary protests which demanded the army take control and run new elections where more parties which formed as a result of the initial efforts of the Arab Spring, an idea which implicitly bore witness to the chaos which has swept other regions as well emanating from the lack of the guidance and “interference” by the United States. The leading from behind was more like leading from within the gates of the White House as President Obama was leading from so far behind the United States almost had no influence and was of little assistance after the governments started collapsing. What was supposed to be an Arab Spring rapidly became the Arab Winter. The fracturing in Libya into tribal enclaves and Islamist sects, all of which take little note of those claiming to be the nation’s government though they control only most of the capital city of Tripoli. Syria has presented the world with the spectacle of a bloodbath which has claimed the lives of approaching half a million civilians and large numbers of military and militia casualties. The entrance of an overtly strong and well organized group took such advantage to grasp large tracks of lands in both Syria and in another area where death and chaos reigned in central Iraq’s Sunni areas. This group is of course the Junior Varsity, as referred to early on when if the United States President had entered the battle in strength for a brief period in the early stages they could have struck the forming Islamic State inflicting serious damage and death and possibly have captured or killed much of their leadership returning the forces into the disarray they suffered from before being organized by the Islamic State. Now this group commands lands greater in size than the United Kingdom and will likely grow stronger and gain more followers swearing their fealty all across the central Arab Middle East. The United States response had been an extremely weak and ineffective bombing campaign where often pilots return with their ordinance still in place as their target area had no targets and their search for suitable targets were unsuccessful and they were forced to return to base when fuel ran low. The fifty man force about to be unleashed by President Obama will likely prove the greatest military farce of his Presidency.

The Middle East is not the only problem though when the problem is financial; its effects are more readily concealable. The difficulties in Europe can also be traced back to the United States as when the American public’s buying power becomes strapped, then every market in the world loses their primary market. In Europe the economic situation grew so severe in a number of states with Greece and Spain being unable to cover their difficulties and Greece even having riots over the difficulties and many police departments turning to foot patrols in the neighborhoods closest to the station houses as their vehicles were out of gas and the precinct out of funds. Some Fire Departments ran on crews who were often unpaid but had firefighters who refused to allow such an inconvenience to leave the people unprotected from fires. These were the modern heroes.

 

Meanwhile, even with the encouragement of President Obama who has signaled through unofficial channels which have included members of his administration have encouraged former allies of the United States of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to actively seek assistances and alliances with Soviet Russian holdover of the old ways and now President of modern Russia Vladimir Putin, though some of his actions prove his throwback to a former age and desiring to force things back to the good old days with success while the United States remains almost inert, as the United States has taken a pull back on all fronts as the United States imposing militarism was declared by President Obama to be one of the two most damaging influences causing all the strife in the world with the mere existence of the state of Israel being the other evil influence which may explain the cold treatment of Israel and her Prime Minister by the American leader and many in his cabinet and shadow cabinet of Czars. It never occurred to the Obama Administration that the United States presence in near every hotspot was as those tasked to address the situation and as repair and assist and not causality.

 

This misperception has also been expanded to the Arab/Israeli conflict. President Obama and many of his advisors, particularly Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett and Samantha Power were known anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and probably anti-Semitic problem children. The near universal denials of the slant to Israeli against Israeli security through supporting even the most absurd of Arab Palestinian demands and claims might be causes for concern for Israel and her security and being just one more administration to take the position that it is Israeli settling their ancient homelands and fulfilling Torah that are the problem and the Arab Palestinians are an oppressed indigenous peoples despite the Jewish presence documented to reach back near four-thousand year history and constant existence in Jerusalem since David took the city thirty-five-hundred year ago. This position has slowly been eroding as more and more leaders and people throughout the world have begun to realize that Arab intransigence and demanding that Israel be destroyed and that the destruction of the Jewish State and the genocidal slaughter of her peoples are the primary desire of Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Arab Palestinian cause. The next realization that will hopefully hatch within their consciousness is that Israel had already given up the entirety of the Gaza Strip in August of 2005, which was soon taken from Mahmoud Abbas and his Arab Palestinian Authority by Hamas and a host of terrorist Islamist entities; returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula, which is easily three times the size of Israel itself; plus the Zionist Congress when working to form the Jewish State agreed to permit the British to form Transjordan (Jordan) from over three-fourths the lands of the British Mandate surrendering the lands east of the Jordan river and reaching to Iraq on the east, Syria to the north and Saudi Arabia to the south; so all told, Israel has surrendered sufficient land mass to have increased the actual size of Israel close to ten times. So, do not claim that Israel has not returned or released their claims to land; that is a total myth and quite fallacious a myth at that.

 

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

So, with the United States Executive Branch under President Obama and reflecting his beliefs which reflect with great credit the church he and his family attended for twenty years under the anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-Judeo-Christian ethic and beliefs Pastor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, it is little surprise that in President Obama’s foreign policy has reflected his animosities and complete lack of foreign policy expertise. This has led to the retreat by the United States on all fronts and allowed for the brash adventuresome actions by American adversaries of Russia and China, amongst others which have bordered on being temerarious, risky and posing a serious threat to any President who follows these policies and their implications if and when such a foreign policy focused President might be elected. The foolhardiness of the American populace who are well permitted to ignore the outside and greater world and simply be concerned with their domestic situations, pretend that economics were their driving passions and even appear to have fallen for an idea whose time was claimed had come and the first Black President be placed in the White House and for his catchy and easily remembered themes of “Yes We Can” and of “Hope and Change”; though there never was anybody asking what changes are we presumably hoping for? The change has mostly been quite destructive in the world’s stage and a complete abrogation of the traditional importance to the world, strategic positioning of the United States military forces, the American political model being represented as the preferred model for good governance with concern for the people over and above the concerns of the political class and as the guarantor of order, human rights, civility and against the most disastrous proclivities of mankind such as genocide, oppressions, and the many other presumed actions the United States could provide the world at large when she is enforcing those principles under which she herself presumably performs her domestic policies. Some might claim that the United States internal policies have also suffered since the start of the Twenty First Century which was preceding the withdrawal and suffering of the rest of the world from the United States reduction of both interactions and direct actions across the globe and especially in the MENA areas which have suffered the most from this abatement.

 

This is what has led to the situation where the free world had no real or active leadership. Canada’s Stephen Harper took up some of the challenge as did Britain’s David Cameron; but even combined, the two men could not equal even the most minimal actions usually taken by the United States. Additionally, the only nations who are capable of deploying troops across the globe are China and, to a lesser extent, Russia. The pullback of American forces has permitted some adventurism by these two powers which would never have been undertaken had there been a remaining presence in force of the United States. Russia adventurism has extended to as far as Syria and even negotiating got permission for a naval base in Northern Africa. China has been even more interesting as they have been adding to their territories and expending their claims to the waters of the South China Sea by building new islands stretching well into this vital commercial water causeway through which much trade by shipping takes place.

 

So, who will take up the mantle of leader of the free world? Of all the potential candidates, it is likely that one of the smallest of nations and one which many would claim they would never look to for such directions, still it is Israel which may end up with the mantle due to her location as the cork in the bottle of the Middle East which appears ready to once again explode on the world’s stage starting with Europe. The explosion of “refugees” into Europe over the past weeks is in reality an invasion and not an influx of oppressed refugees. Despite the great care and effort of the media to find groups with children and women to snap their pictures defining the refugees flight into Europe but there have been a few news sources which have shown the reality of large and even overly common numbers of men between the ages of fifteen to forty and extremely able of being a deployed army which is now injected throughout continental Europe and a large number had gathered across Germany. If Europe is going to be capable of managing the troubles to come, they will very likely look to Israel as their model on how to handle their newly found problems. There is one result from this which will serve Israel as well as Europe as Israel will be forgiven taking control of all of Israel as promised in the British Mandate but limited by the later Churchill White Papers where Transjordan was taken out of the lands originally promised and the promise to keep the remainder sacrosanct for the Jewish State for a promise of all the lands west of the Jordan River. This newly found freedom of action will permit Israel to finally take the steps which has been obvious since the Second Intifada from 2000 through 2005 which claimed over a thousand Jewish and Israeli lives and many tens of thousands injured with all too many having life altering injuries with which they have been forced to live with as their injuries were too serious for modern medicine to repair and only to make things as best as the physicians were capable. The memories and witness of the pains still felt resulting from the last Intifada has cast a pall over Israel where people are determined to take any and all necessary steps to assure that no such situation comes into the violence which has been escalating since late last winter and finally made the world news with the stabbings. These attacks have become so permeating Israel with a half dozen to dozen daily and have become the new normal which means they will soon become considered everyday events in Israel and therefore no longer of any importance for the media to grant coverage. Those who choose to mention these attacks will come under criticism for saying the same thing day after day and as the media is no longer covering these events including the daily rioting on the Temple Mount there are no new pictures and as a Jew in Israel I would face certain injury or death were I to attempt to take my own pictures and videos and as such I am not that adventurous. Still, once Europe realizes that they are in the same boat as Israel and that boat is taking on water at an alarming pace, then Israel will be freed of her shackles and freed to do what should have been done ten to twenty years ago. This will put an end to the miscreants, actually murderous swine, who have indoctrinated their children so to send them on suicide missions as their deaths are to their propaganda media’s advantage and must be born witness by the Western Word for being what it truly is, child sacrifices. Their acts are no different than the idolaters from who Joshua led the initial conquest of Israel by the Jews who had come out of Egypt almost thirty-five-hundred years ago leading to the initial founding of the Jewish State which was recently reestablished restoring what is the only indigenous peoples to return from exile twice with one approaching two-thousand years and to retain their language, code of laws (Torah) and remained a peoples avoiding intermarriage for much of their centuries of life amongst other peoples as they resided in their Diaspora. This is the miraculous nation which may soon become a “Light Unto the Nations” as written in her historic Torah and kept alive in her oral laws as well, to quote Fiddler on the Roof, her “Traditions!”
