Once upon a time not so long ago Israel was the plucky little nation that could. What could that little nation the size of New Jersey do? Well, it could survive genocidal attacks from all fronts and several nations despite being grossly outnumbered and facing overwhelming odds. It could manage to have a capitalist system which included a core of social programs which cared for its people and through socialist structured kibbutzim was able to produce food and goods to such an extent as to export some of the world’s finest produce. Israel was that enigma wrapped in a puzzle surrounded by a query contained in a whirlwind of options that managed to survive. Israel used to be the proof that dreams can come to fruition and survive even against the harshest of threatening neighborhoods. So, what went awry? When did the train jump the tracks?

 

The answer is even more surprising than what one might imagine and so surprising that it is obviously simple, Israel was too successful and was making things work while those around the world kept falling behind by comparison. Israel was successful by taking the opposite road than the rest of the world had chosen. And Israel was pilloried by a sinister plot hatched to destroy her by the most vile measures of lies, innuendo, spite and infamy. Israel became the target upon which every nation, every peoples, every entity could measure their resentment against and join together to destroy this nation of the Jews, this Jewish entity amongst the nations of the world. Israel was to be treated to an unseen anti-Semitic assault not seen for almost two-thousand years. Israel was being returned to her former glory amongst the nations of the known world, of her known world, the nations singled out by every empire, ever conqueror, every abysmal force of contempt and evil which could arise from the human condition. Israel became the excuse for the failures of the everyman, the causation of every calamity, the target for all hatreds, disgusts, accusations, vile temperament which denied every definition as it refused to break no matter how twisted, bent, beaten or broken, Israel survived and came to return and thrive again.

 

It took a small amount of time before the obvious became noticed and once noticed became the raison d’etre for a hatred based in anti-Semitism but leveled at an international level equal to the forerunner which was the force spawned and inspiring the full force with which the Ancient Egyptians brought to borne against it as did subsequent powers as the Philistines, the Assyrian Empire, the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, the Greek Empire, and the Roman Empire. The destructive forces and vile contempt did not end with the simple dispersal of the Judean remnant of the Israelites to the furthest corners throughout the great expanse of Rome, no, Rome also continued a level of persecution against these shreds of a peoples, these shards which remained as they continued to practice and perform individually the rites which would hold them as a people throughout the coming ages.

 

In this Diaspora the one family of Judah, the one tribe of the Jews became two separate entities, the Ashkenazim of central Europe and the Sephardim of Spain and across all of Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) and eventually expelled from Spain with the Inquisition. Throughout these periods the Jews would face perils as they were beaten down and persecuted beginning with the immediate forces of the Roman Empire which had placed them strewn across the known world, followed by the Byzantine Empire, the Crusaders, the early Muslims in their origins of Mecca and Medina starting with the Battle of Khaybar, the Crusaders, the Caliph of Baghdad, al-Muqtadi imposition of Dhimmitude forced Jewish males to wear distinctive yellow mark upon their headgear to denote their Jewish religion and a weight around their neck marked Dhimmi and was the initial use of a yellow mark which would later become the Nazi source for the marking of Jews with the yellow star on their clothing, a series of pogroms and expulsions marked the lives of both the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim to such extents that it would be difficult to list all these events as in some cases, many probably still unknown, every Jew residing in a town, city, fiefdom or other demarked area might have been put to the sword, burned at the stake or other form of mass execution leaving no survivor to tell of the events thus passing without note unless related by the history of the designated area cleansed of its Jews.

 

Some of the more famous such events such as the Spanish Inquisition where Jews were forced to convert to Catholicism and if suspected of continuing to practice Judaism stealthily within the confines of their homes they were dragged into the street or town square and executed often in as horrific a manner as possible. Across Europe the Jews were often burned at the stake or murdered in other manners or simply expelled as the plague struck the Jewish sections of towns nowhere nearly as hard as it did the Christian areas due to the regimented cleaning of the Jewish homes annually for Passover when removing Chametz (leavened breads cakes etc.) thus less rodents and fleas carrying the plague existed in the Jewish areas by comparison. The locals would often claim that this was due to the Jews having contaminated the Christians wells causing their greater rate of plague and a pogrom would be organized which often after torturing and murdering some of the Jews the rest were forced from their location forced to flee with what they were capable of taking with them. Jews often found their families having to decide what to take and how long they should linger packing and remain safe.

 

In more modern times the main persecutions were propagated by the Czars who went so far as to write the book “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” which described the plot by the Jews to rule the world which was preposterous but even today in parts of the world these writings are still produced as proof of a Jewish plot to rule the world through devious and manipulative means. When the Communists replaced the Czars, despite many leading Jews assisting the rise to power, the Jews still were separated for special treatment and eventually simply persecuted outright. There was Nazi Germany and the Holocaust which destroyed over one-third of the Jewish world’s population, probably one of the greatest decimations of Jewish lives since the fall of the Northern Kingdom of Israel which was conquered by the Assyrians never to be recovered until modern times as these disparate tribes are being found throughout the globe and being brought back within the fold in Israel. The latest threat is growing in power and gaining weapons capable of unbelievable destruction by Iran and the outcome between Israel and the Iranian threat is still to be decided. It is looking more dire each passing day and one wonders how Israel will be able to find a path for her survival once again.

 

Facing the hatreds and attempts of continued decimations the individual Jew remained an identity always apart, always different, always struggling and striving towards that promised day their scroll, their Torah gave hope to the belief that eventually the dry bones would face one final crushing blow from which they would miraculously begin to grow sinews as they reassembled in the form of human skeletons and would grow flesh and appear as the flesh and bone remnants of a people from the Holocaust, the Shoah, and would grow muscles and return to their national homelands where the early Zionist had already gathered and prepared for their arrival. And then came the great purges throughout the rest of the nations of the world, the nations of MENA and the Sephardim followed on the heels of the Ashkenazim and were brought into their homelands and rejoined their family. The dry bones finally regrown were capable of further miracles every day and as the miracles grew and so the favor from what many referred to as the fates, but we knew was G0d our Father and our Staff when we grew weary and in need of support and Who would give us the power to wield that staff when set upon by other nations and once again His favor did shine upon us. The miracles happen in small increments daily with the little miracles, those miracles which explain the otherwise unexplainable because, as Torah teaches us, there is no such thing as coincidence, luck, or happenstance; just G0d’s will to shower every single day with His saving grace and love.

 

Then there are the much larger miracles, the ones we hear and can only take in the shock of the magnitude of certain unexplainable events. The victory in the Six Day War in June of 1967 was an obvious series of miracles as virtually everything went as well or better than expected. Even the altering of plans to fight on an additional front upon Jordan entering the conflict on the second day, or later during the first twenty-four hours, was successful and did not hinder the front against Egypt from where the reinforcements were redirected to go into Jerusalem where they made our sacred home back in Israeli hands. There was the eventual victory in the Yom Kippur War in October of 1983 when initially it appeared as if Israel was to be overrun. Then there was an utterly inexplicable event which was but a single instance which could have ended so poorly but whose circumstance was as beyond belief as was the saving grace which a battery of the Iron Dome system were to witness. We first reported on this event in our article How to Fight Terrorist Fanatics Unless You’re Israel where we quoted the story as reported in Israel Today titled “Iron Dome Operator: God Moved Missile We Couldn’t Hit”. Here is the story once again;

 

“A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.”

“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.”

“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that…sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a G0d!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of G0d send that missile into the sea.”

 

Now, that was a miracle similar in kind and impact which was Bible worthy as thousands of lives were spared and the lack of other explanations was impossible. This was evidence of the hand of G0d at work as a pick-up in the wind is insufficient to move a rocket that far off its trajectory that late in its traverse such as to push the rocket a mere few feet but over a mile from its course in the final half mile or less of its traversal to target. What better place to end this article than with the realities of the force and faith in the L0rd our G0d and G0d of the universe for all people to love and share his love and acceptance of each and every last one of us no matter our past as long as we are making efforts to improve ourselves and be a shining example in His eyes.

Are European Governments Accusations of Colonialism True?

The title is an interesting question no matter which direction you take aim, at Israeli building beyond the Green Line or perhaps other kinds of building beyond the Green Line. The European Union and numerous European governments’ claims against Israeli building beyond the Green Line, even within Jerusalem which Israel has annexed and granted citizenship with one guard in that they are allowed to vote in local elections for Jerusalem government positions including Mayor and the parliament but are restricted for now from voting in national elections until after the final borders have been set by negotiations and then further rights will be decided. Whether any building beyond the Green Line by Israel is colonialism or simply building on lands initially proposed as areas Israel would retain depends on a number of agreements and definitions. If you base your definitions on International Law then you might be surprised that according to treaties established after World War I and before the League of Nations and which set up the Mandate System which set certain lands to be reserved for establishing certain states for different populations, then you might want to read the San Remo Agreement which set up the British Mandate in order to establish a Jewish state. The British Mandate extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the western border of Iraq and from the French Mandate lands to the north and to Egypt and Saudi Arabia in the south. This was set aside for the Jewish state where by the dictates of the San Remo Agreement the Jewish state was to be a place reserved for the homeland of the Jewish people with provisions that any other people residing within the Mandate lands were entitled to religious freedom, freedom of speech, respected integrity of land ownership and other freedoms with the singular exception of political rights which were to remain under control of the Jewish leadership once the British determined there was sufficient Jewish presence to retain political and legal control over the lands.

 

This is where things became interesting. A few years into the British Mandate the numbers of Arabs moving into the Mandate areas was growing attracted by the promising increase in the economic activity which had begun growing in the second half of the Nineteenth Century with the initial outset of the Zionist movement and Jews starting to return to their ancestral homelands. The returning Jews added to an already healthy Jewish majority within Jerusalem, a presence and majority which stretched back almost three thousand years as these were Jews who had resided in Jerusalem since before the invasion by Alexander the Great and remained in Jerusalem surviving the atrocities and attempt to disperse the Jewish people to the far flung edges of the Roman Empire so as to punish them and destroy the Jewish people for all future time. The British under the name of Winston Churchill offered the Zionist Congress, the legal Jewish governance within and without of the British Mandate lands, a proposition where the British would be permitted to establish an Arab state for the Palestinian Arabs east of the Jordan River while the lands west of the Jordan River on to the Mediterranean Sea would remain inviolate for the Jewish state into the future and this would also allow the British to be able to make good on their promise to the Hashemite Family to give them lands to rule in exchange for their assistance in World War I, a promise probably made by T. E. Lawrence. The Zionist took the offer despite it reallocating over three-quarters (78%) of the British Mandate leaving them a narrow strip hugging the Mediterranean Sea as it was to their advantage to grant the Arabs their own lands thus they would be better situated to reach a majority population more readily. At this time the British referenced the Jews by calling them Palestinians and the Arabs were called Arabs or Egyptians, Syrians (the largest percentage of the Arab population as Syrian lands under the Ottoman Empire included all of both the French and British Mandates), Turks, Iraqis, Saudis, Tunisians, Yemeni, and other tribal names or even Arab Palestinians, in the case of mixed parentage which was rather common as time passed. By these stipulations the world’s scrambling and screaming to see who can be first to force a new Arab nation west of the Jordan River next to Israel and on as much land as is humanly possible are all working against International Law and many, if not all, of them are fully aware of this deceit.

 

But what if one believes the claims that an Arab state belongs sharing the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with Israel because Gaza and Judea and Samaria (called the “West Bank” by Jordan during their illegal occupation after the invasion to destroy the Jewish state after its birth in 1948) were never a part of Israel proper? This also gets into problems the further one peals back the layers of the onion. Let’s look a little deeper and see how it was the Gaza, Judea and Samaria became believed to be rightful Arab lands. Before Israel was born there was a decision made by the United Nations General Assembly recommending a means of the forming of two states starting on May 15, 1948, with one being Jewish and one being Arab. This resolution was like every other resolution out of the General Assembly of the United Nations, a simple suggestion which in order to be binding must be accepted by all parties to the resolution. This resolution was made to the Zionist Congress as the Jewish organization pertaining to the Jewish establishment of a state and the Arab League as the representatives of any Arab interests in forming a state. The Zionist Congress agreed while the Arab League refused the resolution as they had very different plans, they were going to take the entire area and divide it amongst Syria, Egypt and Jordan. This is where things get confusing. With the rejection by the Arab League there was no longer any claim calling for the placement of an Arab state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and all plans now reverted to the state under International Law. As we know from the above, International Law granted these lands to a Jewish state unless the Jewish interests decided otherwise and despite the Jewish legal body being willing to allow the General Assembly Resolution, that dissolved as soon as the Arab League refused and Israel, as the Jewish state, now became the sole rightful nation as of May 15, 1948 over all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. So, why is there any contesting of this now?

 

When May 15, 1948, rolled around there were over a half dozen Arab national armies consisting of but not limited to Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the forces under the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini (who had spent almost all of World War II in Berlin or other areas of the Nazi controlled Europe and made frequent broadcasts calling for the Arabs to rise up and vanquish the British forces in Egypt and British Mandate lands) some forces from Pakistan and Sudan as well as numerous militias and other forces all crammed into the lands surrounding the nascent state of Israel. After a number of cease fires and reigniting of hostilities, the fighting came to a final halt on the different fronts as Israel finally reaching a ceasefire armistice with Egypt on February 24, 1949, Lebanon on March 23, 1949, Jordan on April 3, 1949, and Syria on July 20. 1949. The United Nations finalized the borders by combining the separate Armistice Agreements and melded all these items together and established the “Green Line” which still is used by many as if it has some meaning other than this is where the front lines were when the fighting ended in 1949. Upon the insistence of the numerous Arab powers and the Arab League the “Green Line” was to be denoted as an armistice line and was to never at any time to be construed as a border defining Israel or any other surrounding or bordering state as doing so would have been tantamount to recognizing Israel as an actual and recognizable state, a fact the Arab forces and governments were loath to allow by any means, thus technically the only boundaries which have ever define Israel as having a border are those of the San Remo Conference which defined the borders for the Jewish state as Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea, or if preferred, by the Churchill White Paper which defined the boundaries for Israel into perpetuity as the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with Lebanon and Syria to the north and Saudi Arabia and Egypt to the south. Following the end of the War to vanquish the nascent state of Israel and slaughter its Jews before they can even breathe the air for a single day, a war that raged for approximately two years if the skirmishes which began even before the November 29, 1947 vote of the United Nations General Assembly for the formation of the state of Israel was even taken, there is even more to the story to be told.

 

Egypt retained Gaza but never annexed it and recognized it as occupied land partially as they were uninterested in ruling over the area as they found it to pose more problems and caused them more difficulties than they felt it was worth as it had little to offer as far as economics was concerned. Jordan, on the other hand, held the areas of Judea and Samaria and was very interested in the good rich lands and the potentials it had so they not only annexed them but renamed it the “West Bank” so as to remove the reminder that these were ancient Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria, two names dating and referencing back to Torah as well as the Old Testament and also the New Testament. Jordan also realized what importance there was to the Jewish people that they did not possess the Old City and Temple Mount locations of the city of Jerusalem and that by denying the Jews even the right of access or visitation that they were causing the Jewish people grief and pain. For over seventeen years that Egypt held Gaza and Jordan held the “West Bank” there was absolutely no mention of using these lands, either separately or together, to form a Palestinian state or an Arab state by any name. Further, of the entire world only two nations recognized the annexation of the “West Bank” which were Great Britain and Pakistan; not even a single Arab state recognized the annexation, and only Pakistan amongst the over fifty Muslim majority nations ever recognized it. The fact was that both Gaza and Judea and Samaria were seen for what they were, occupied lands; and from whom were they occupied, Israel of course as per the San Remo Conference and the Churchill White Papers. This becomes important later, but first there is another interesting subject into which we should delve.

 

The interesting date we will want to cover is the day the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) with Yasser Arafat as its leader and beside him as his number two man was Mahmoud Abbas and this all occurred on May 28, 1964. Let us go so far as to quote the Palestine Facts web site at“http://www.palestinefacts.org/” at their page which tells us all about their original designs where they claim, “Since Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) including East Jerusalem, and Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip at the time the PLO was founded, the PLO was committed to the dissolution of Israel, mainly through the use of armed force.” So, the PLO was originally founded under the premise their mission was to destroy Israel and take over all of Israel for at least the three years before the Six Day War in June of 1967 when after Egypt had set a naval blockade preventing Israeli use of the Straits of Tiran, cutting off the Israeli southern port of Eilat from exiting the Red Sea and accessing Asia and Africa which was defined, after Gamal Abdel Nasser had included closing the Straits of Tiran along with the Suez Canal during the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis as a casus belli for war, and massing troops on the Sinai-Negev border and Syria had massed troops along the Golan Heights bordering Israel and Nasser was broadcasting day and night on television and radio in both Syria and Egypt, two nations temporarily unified as the United Arab Republic (UAR) that the Israelis reacted to the acts of war and initially engaged Egypt and then Syria when Syrian troops swept down off the Golan Heights. Soon thereafter Jordan stated their intent to attack Israel quoting reports from Egypt and Syria claiming their great victories and how their forces were approaching Tel Aviv and would soon meet and finish off the rest of Israel after taking Tel Aviv. Israel warned and pleaded with Jordan not to believe the Egyptian and Syrian propaganda and that they were all lies and actually Israel was winning on both fronts. Jordan took the Israeli pleading as a sign of weakness and proof of Israeli defeat and Jordan declared war. As history reports, at the end of the June 1967 Six Day War Israel controlled the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula and had liberated Gaza from Egypt and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) from Jordan. It was three years and a month after the founding of the PLO (there have been reports that the PLO was originally hatched months before during a KGB meeting somewhere in Moscow where the KGB drafted a known operative whom they could control, Yasser Arafat, to head the operation and the KGB also approved of Mahmoud Abbas and several other Arab operatives they trusted to assist in the planning and other duties and the KGB funded much of the PLO operations and gave them provisions) that Israel gained possession of Judea and Samaria which they technically liberated as they initially belonged to Israel before she lost them in the 1948-1949 War of Independence which was really a war initiated by the Arab League with the intention of totally destroying the new Jewish entity, later to be referred to as the Zionist entity by the enemies of Israel. After the Six Day War the PLO did not change their Charter and their mission remained the total destruction of Israel.

 

Move forward many hundreds of terror attacks later and after the end of the First Intifada to Monday September 13, 1993, to the White House lawn and there with President William Jefferson Clinton and his ever-present wide smile we find PLO chief terrorist Yasser Arafat and Israeli President Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin meeting, shaking hands and both signing the Oslo Accords which recognized the PLO being transformed into the Palestinian Authority and the PLO was to amend their charter to remove the stipulation for the destruction of Israel and replacing it with verbiage recognizing the right of Israel to exist as the state for the Jewish People. Well, guess that little amending part and rewriting the charter such that destruction of became recognition of Israel and further, Israel as the home for the Jewish People never came to fruition which means that the Oslo Accords never were officially enacted. There was one meeting a few years later attended by an American team where the Palestinian legislature assigned a team to investigate the means by which the charter might be amended to meet the requirements of the Oslo Accords thus making them active which satisfied the Americans that the charter would finally be amended. Wrong again as the PLO charter, which acts as the charter for the Palestinian Authority, never did get amended and that committee never met either. But what if Oslo Accords were actually initiated as everybody believes such that it may as well have been honestly enacted as does it matter now as it took on a life of its own. That, too depends on how much of a stickler for the facts one chooses to be, and when it comes to International Law and international treaties come into play.

 

But let’s humor the concept that the Oslo Accords were validated; what did they actually set up? The Oslo Accords separated Judea and Samaria into thee sectors, Area A, Area B and Area C. The entirety of Oslo recognized that Israel had actually met every demand and stipulation of the United Nations resolutions after the Six Day War and even went further after the end of the Yom Kippur War of 1973 where Israel after the fighting ended had to pull back from their front line which was well on its way to taking Damascus holding position half the way there from the Golan Heights but Israel withdrew back to the Golan Heights, the front lines at the end of the 1967 Six Day War that Israel held and against Egypt Israel had crossed the Suez Canal and was approaching the Nile River at the furthest points of their front lines but after the fighting ceased Israel heeded the demands from the United States, Russia and many European nations and others retreating back across the Suez Canal and forfeiting any control over the Suez Canal despite holding the entirety of the western bank of the canal. When Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt Israel had returned lands retaining those lands deemed necessary for Israeli defense to be secure. Many nations in the 1970s believed and supported the idea that for Israel to be secure within her borders that this meant Israel retaining all of Judea and Samaria, but things change. The three areas the lands were divided into were denoted as per how it was viewed they would end up being divided after negotiations were completed, which was to take all of three years. Area A was placed under complete security and governmental control of the Palestinian Authority. This placed Yasser Arafat as the ruling person over Area A where there would presumably be elections regularly to choose the leadership over the areas under Palestinian governance. Area B was under Palestinian governance and joint security with both Palestinian and Israeli security being shared and with mutual assistance. Area C which included all of East Jerusalem was under Israel governance and security control with no control of any sort granted the Palestinian Arabs, this area was presumed to become an integral part of Israel, period. What this means is that Israel is free to settle anywhere they please in Area C of Judea and Samaria which includes East Jerusalem. It is only the fact that near the beginning of his first term as President of the United States that President Obama spoke clearly and intentionally, it is our opinion that there was no mistake made or that President Obama was not fully versed and cognizant of the ramification of what he said, he was clear and precise with his choice of words and meant every syllable as he stated, “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” This changed the entire outlook overnight and it took Mahmoud Abbas no time before he called for meetings with his top officials, signaled his willingness to start negotiation immediately with President Obama’s expectation of borders being the 1967 lines finally setting a standard which Abbas could support and Abbas soon afterwards made a trip throughout Europe meeting with heads of state and other ranking politicians talking about the need to press Israel to accept the reality that they were obligated to return all of the lands they had been occupying, that despite the reality that any lands granted to the Palestinians would become occupied Israeli lands that the Palestinians were squatting upon.

 

That leads us to the most recent of events, the proof beyond question that the European Union in concert with a number of European nations have been financing Arab purchases of lands in many parts of Area C as well as within East Jerusalem. These purchases are illegal under the precise definitions of rights under the Oslo Accords. The European and their Arab accomplices are the ones who are breaking International Law and the Oslo Accords by these scurrilous and clandestine purchases of lands to give to Arabs to manufacture new realities on the ground by acting to finance colonialization of Area C. European Union and European governments engaging in these purchases can and should be charged with crimes against the sovereign state of Israel just as the European Union and European governments who have threatened to sue Israel for illegal land use and colonization of lands not belonging to them by treaty despite their inability to name what treaty of agreement the Israelis were in contravention of by building or taking up residence after purchasing lands, properties or homes and apartments in East Jerusalem and Area C according to Israel’s rights spelled out in Oslo Accords. If the Europeans would desire that the Oslo Accords be discarded as they are no longer viable, then I guess we need to ask the Europeans which agreement they desire to revert to, the San Remo Conference or the Churchill White Paper as Oslo appears to have been abrogated despite the fact that the Palestinian Authority and the PLO both still have refused to amend their charter thus the Europeans are correct in claiming that Oslo has died. It matters little where the world stands on these matters as by any means their buying lands for Arabs in Area C and East Jerusalem is as illegal as acts can be and it is our bet that they are aware of their pretense, duplicity, deceit, faithlessness, chicanery and outright quackery. But what can one expect from a continent which just over seventy years ago was fully complicit in the nefariousness of the Final Solution by which the physically handicapped, mentally challenged, the insane, the Roma, the Serbians, the Jews and all others who did not meet, cooperate, support or obey the Nazis rules and demands or those who had a crisis of conscience were annihilated with factory like precision and the speed and efficiency of a production line. A continent that just over seventy years ago slaughtered without conscience over twelve millions of their own and the nations they conquered innocent civilians of which one in two was a Jew who did no more than worship G0d differently than was expected under the iron fisted Nazi rule. The same continent which has witnessed many hundreds of a percent of anti-Semitism within its society from one end to the other over the past two to three years and can fully expect this trending to continue into the future where one way or the other there will finally be no Jews left in Europe and Hitler and his close advisors and friends’ dream which was thought out and dressed up with a nice bow wrapped around the parchment which carried its fateful and depraved decree down from atop the Wannsee Conference. Perhaps they have not heard that the Jews promised “Never Again” and we meant that. That is the reason that Israel is so vital and the Europeans are fully aware of this fact and that is what is truly behind their condemnations of Israel and their insistence on its defeat even if it must be by stages just as Yasser Arafat put into motion as he too realized that the Jews will fight this time.

The Actual True Reason Behind the Palestinian Israeli Conflict

The going misdirection of the reasons for the conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis revolves on the Jewish Zionists swarmed from Europe with the assistance of Britain and the World and stole the land which made up the Palestinian State of Palestine and are trying to build this murderous and genocidal concept and country of Israel, the Jewish State. The entire situation and violence could be resolved if only those Jews in Israel would allow the Palestinians to reconstruct their beloved Palestine within the borders that existed before the 1967 Six Day War. This article is not about whether or not there ever existed a Palestinian State by any name or notation, nor is it about the actual acts of terrorism, the rocket attacks, the suicide bombings, the strikes by a vastly more powerful IDF in presumable retaliatory manner; this is intended to explain exactly what the actual crux of the belligerence and hostilities on each side is all about.

Let us look first at the Palestinian perspectives of what the conflict is all about. The claims made by the Palestinians can often be traced back to be found to be imitations of Jewish ideals and ideas which can be traced back to long before there was even a hint of a conflict with some dating back to before any of the Arabs of those periods had even begun to reside in what is today the regions around Israel. The Palestinians actions over the years going back even before 1948, or even before 1900, belie the argument that all they wish is to have a State of their own. In November of 1947 the United Nations passed a non-binding resolution in the General Assembly proposing a fifty-fifty split in the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea to be shared by a Jewish and an Arab State with much of the Jewish State consisting of the Negev Desert while the fertile Galilee to be part of the Arab State. At this point the term Palestinian was used to denote the Jewish settlers while the Arabs were referred to as either Palestinian Arabs or simply Arabs with both terms referring to those living in what remained of the British Mandate Lands after the British tore off 78% of the Mandate Lands to form an Arab Palestinian State of Transjordan, today called simply Jordan. This offer was refused by the Arab League and also by virtually every Muslim State as they claimed they would never recognize the legitimacy of a Jewish State. It was not the size of the Palestinian State or whether such a State would be attached to Jordan or be independent or anything concerning or referring to the proposed Arab State, the entire rejection was that there be any piece of lands reserved for non-Muslims that were not to be ruled by Muslims, and especially not a Jewish State as that was the most grievous insult one could force upon the Arab Muslims.

This led to what the Israelis refer to as their war for independence but was actually a war brought against the nascent State of Israel with the expressed intent to slaughter every single Jew residing on Muslim claimed lands. When the violence was finally brought to an end through United Nations actions, Israel had actually not only survived, but had actually managed to hold far more land than was originally set aside for them by the General Assembly resolution. The minute the Arab States and representatives rejected the General Assembly Resolution and declared a war of annihilation on the State of Israel, the resolution was thus invalidated and no longer held any weight as it takes full voluntary compliance by both sides for any General Assembly resolution to become validated and thereby become enforceable. Once the ceasefire lines had been established the situation left Israel as defined today as within the Green Line or the 67 Borders and left the Golan Heights under Syrian control, Judea and Samaria (West Bank) under Jordanian control, and Gaza under Egyptian control. With these lands left under Arab Muslim control, the Arab nations holding them could have turned them over to form the presumably so desperately desired Palestinian State but such an idea was never even proposed or mentioned for as long as the lands were under Muslim control, everything was as Allah would wish it to be. What was against the will of Allah was that the Jews still had possession of lands that should have belonged to Muslims as they had once been occupied by Muslims and no land where Muslims have ever had ruling authority can be allowed to be under anyone’s control other than Muslim, this is Allah’s will.

This situation with the Syrian occupying the Golan Heights, Egypt occupying Gaza, and Jordan occupying Judea and Samaria (West Bank) continued until the 1967 Six Day War where Israel was initially attacked by Egypt through the actions of massing an invasion force on the Israeli southern border and their closing of the Straights of Tiran to all Israeli shipping, an act which had been declared as a sufficient Casus Belli for war between Israel and Egypt. Egypt was allied with Syria which had also massed an invasion force on the Golan Height threatening the Israeli northern border. Subsequently, after hearing the Egyptian and Syrian flowing glorious victories they were experiencing and how they were routing the Israeli Defense Forces, Jordan stated their intentions to join in on the perceived route and decimation of the Jewish State. Israeli leaders attempted to persuade the King of Jordan not to enter the war and that the reports he was relying on out of Syria and Egypt were falsification and in reality the Israelis were prevailing on all fronts. Needless to point out, Jordan refused to believe what they were sure were Israeli lies and propaganda and they too declared war on Israel. As history tells, the Israelis retook the Golan Heights and were well on their way to Damascus, taken all of Judea and Samaria stopping at the Jordan River, and not only retaken Gaza but also the entire Sinai Peninsula right up to the Suez Canal. It was at this point that the thought and proposed Palestinian State was born as the lands in question had fallen from Muslim control. This is where many believe that Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) came into being; not so.

Feel free to research this yourself, but Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas together with the aid of the Russian KGB established the PLO presenting their Charter on May 28, 1964. The PLO was founded on the proposition that Jihad was the way to remove the Jews from all of Palestine. Yasser Arafat was explicitly referring to all of Israel as he often explicitly indicating while speaking in Arabic including such cities as Tel Aviv, Acco (Acre), Tiberius, Beersheba, and other within the pre-1967 Green Line Borders. It was after the 1967 Six Day War, over three full years after the founding of the PLO, that Yasser Arafat began his new avenue where in English he spoke of peace and the return of the Palestinian people to their sacred and historic homeland and talked of their “Right of Return” and copied virtually every single discussion point that had been used by the Jewish Zionists since the mid nineteenth century while speaking to the Arab audiences in Arabic claiming their right to take all of Israel, the genocidal annihilation of all the Jews of Israel, the riches that would become theirs once they were reclaimed from the accursed Jews, and other calls of war, violence, and terror. The PLO Charter still retains the call for the elimination of the Jewish State, of Israel which was supposedly had been removed to comply with the Oslo Accords but was never actually implemented though discussed at a few occasions when Western observers were present.

As the fight to destroy the Zionist State did not exactly proceed with any great signs of success, other terrorist entities with a different reason d’etre came into being with all pointing to the elimination of Israel as their driving impetus. Where the PLO was mostly a secular nationalist in their origins, many of these new terror groups applied the word Jihad very literally as they were religious in their basis. One of the better recognized of these entities was the spawn of the Muslim Brotherhood, largely out of Egypt, is Hamas with other similar religiously oriented terror outfits being Islamic Jihad, PRC (Popular Resistance Committees), PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), al-Qaeda in Gaza, and even some smaller Salafists. Despite of these groups rhetoric about their desire and longing for the establishment of a Palestinian State, their actions belie that claim. The simple fact is that every offer for statehood presented has not been sufficiently generous as they refuse to accept anything other than the complete surrender, capitulation and end of Israel. Even when Yasser Arafat was granted a generous offer that met virtually every one of the demands he had presented in Paris, instead of offering a counter offer he simply stormed from the negotiations denouncing the entire procedure never to return to negotiations. Numerous times when refusal of Israeli offers would have cost the Palestinians their standing and legitimacy in the eyes of Europe and the United States thus threatening their monetary lifeline, whoever was negotiating demanded the one item which Israel cannot permit, the Right of Return for over five million Palestinians. The entire reason behind the Palestinian refugee situation is the nurturing of a poison pill which if ever forced upon the Israelis will spell the end of Israel as the Jewish State. The resultant influx of the many millions of Palestinian Arabs would give the Arab population of Israel a majority allowing them to turn Israel into just one more Muslim State and once they took control of the government via the ballot box, the elimination of the now Jewish minority could proceed. The one last item that proves the lack of desire for their own State is the often stated intention by Palestinian leaders that should they ever actually liberate all of Palestine, including replacing all of Israel by said State, they would immediately petition Jordan to unify the two States into the real and true Palestinian State.

So, what are the Israeli desires which most definitely are a part of the conflict, but not for the reasons many believe. Israel is often accused of wishing to build a super state often referred to as Greater Israel. This supposed ideal state would reach from the Euphrates River in Iraq to the Nile River in Egypt. The origins of this claim are taken from some verses in the Bible but never has any Israeli claimed the desire to establish this Greater Israeli State. The Israelis holding the most expansive dimensions for the Israeli borders actually derive from a promise given to the Jewish Zionists by none other than Winston Churchill in the 1920s. Upon the dividing the British Mandate Lands into the Arab State of Transjordan (now Jordan) which consumed 78% of the Mandate Lands taking all of the lands east of the Jordan River, the British promised the Zionist Jewish society that the remaining 22% of the lands, all of the area west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea would remain forever undivided and the Jewish Home State of Israel would be built on every inch of these remaining areas of the Mandate. Obviously, the world has conveniently reneged on this promise. Israel has even granted that they would settle for less than every inch of the lands west of the Jordan, something the Arabs refuse to allow in their claims, and proven such by completely removing every single Jewish settler, soldier, policeman, and all down to the last Jewish person and gave these lands to the Palestinian Authority.

The whole of Gaza was then under Palestinian Authority control while in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), the area was divided into three sectors, Area A which was under complete Palestinian control and where over three quarters of the Palestinian peoples live, Area B which is under Palestinian governmental control with joint military and security shared between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and Area C which is under complete Israeli control and where over 90% of the Jewish Settlers reside. This was the situation for close to two years until there was an election which was partially arranged and forced on both the Israelis and Palestinian Authority. At the insistence of United States President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Hamas was to be allowed to front candidates for office in the elections for the new Parliament. Israel loudly decried this as being very poor judgment and a guaranteed venue to disaster while the Palestinian Authority also expressed severe misgivings in allowing Hamas to be included in the election of January 2006. In the usual arrogance of the United States and its leadership’s over-confident reliance on democracy as the panacea to all political problems, they pressed and forced the inclusion of Hamas to post candidates assuring all that given a choice there was absolutely no possibility for Hamas as a terrorist group to win in fair and open elections. Well, that was not quite the result as the elections resulted in a sizeable Hamas electoral victory as the Palestinians were completely done with the known corrupt governance of the current Palestinian Authority as well as being unsatisfied with what they perceived as an insufficient dedication of the previous Palestinian Authority in eradicating the Jewish State and establishing the free State of Palestine and voted demanding that Hamas live up to their promises to be more vigorous in restoring Palestine and inflicting terror on the Israeli population. Mahmoud Abbas soon dissolved the Parliament which was followed by a coup by Hamas leading to their taking control in Gaza in June 2007. When it became obvious after the Hamas takeover that they were smuggling in weapons and had begun to fire rockets over the border from Gaza into Israel, Israel imposed an embargo over all seaborne traffic into Gaza in order to inspect their cargoes for weapons or items of dual use. The Gaza embargo did not go into effect the moment Israel had surrendered all of Gaza in the disengagement of Gaza in august of 2005 but rather it was imposed after the Hamas takeover almost two years later.

Israel does have some red lines beyond which they are unwilling to compromise. One such is the Old City of Jerusalem, especially the Temple Mount, the Kotel (Western Wall and Plaza) and the largest of the Jerusalem suburbs which hold the largest of the Israeli settlements. Israel cannot retreat from the Golan Heights as to allow Syria to station sharpshooters on the Golan Heights and have them shoot at Israeli farmers working their fields, shooting the livestock and generally making life for Israelis impossible in much of the Galilee Valley, and that includes both the Jewish, Arab, and others as at the distance these snipers engage their targets, there is no concern or ability to discern any difference between targets. Israel would not likely give up control of the Sea of Galilee as would wish to retain bases of the IDF along the Jordan Valley in order to allow for an early warning systems be in place to detect any threats coming from the east, especially aircraft or rockets. All of these items meet the United Nations recommendations which allow for Israel to not necessarily pull all the way out of areas beyond the Green Line but rather retain those geographical locations which would prove necessary for secure borders. Israel is tasked only with not interfering with any non-Jews practice of their religions, not necessarily allowing them automatic citizenship, another erroneous expectation the world has attempted to make a vital and necessary part of any agreements. Allowing such is no more feasible than would be the Right of Return and for exactly the same reason. Israelis mostly desire peace and if a total, complete and permanent peace with their neighbors could magically be produced, Israel would likely be generous in what they would sacrifice in order to attain such. But as long as the only peace offered to Israel by her neighbors is the peace of Dhimmitude, then that is a peace they cannot accept. The proof of this could easily be verified provided it could be arranged for the rockets and mortars to stop, the bombs to never again be planted along IDF patrolling routes, the end to suicide, car or any other form of bombings from Israeli centers or gatherings, and end to bullets and anti-tank missiles targeting vehicles and individuals from out of Gaza, then we would just need to wait and see if Israel also ceased all violence. My bet is that not only would Israel end all strikes but that as time passed and peace remained the rule, the embargo would be lifted over time one stage at a time. If somebody could get all the factions in Gaza to agree I am sure there are many Israelis who would push for Israeli compliance with this new norm and such would come with great glee and even anticipation of even better relations.
