The Greatest Threat is Israel, Right?


Maybe the greatest threat is Israel when considering it is at the base of numerous problems according to some reports. This problem is the lack of peace between Israel and the Palestinians and Israel being at odds with so many of their neighbors in the Middle East and into Northern Africa. Further, there exists animosity between Israel and much of Europe and numerous NGO’s and the source of protests around the world. Judging from the noise from the echo chambers due to complaints accusing Israel, perhaps we have a real problem which requires intervention to force peace on Israel and her neighbors as well as the Palestinians. So, let us look at the situation with Israel and analyze exactly how the world can solve all the aspects of these problems. Shall we proceed to examine the lack of peace and what can be done?


One nation which Israel still has a state of war existing is Syria. Currently there is no real central power in Syria which can be negotiated with or has uncontested recognition as the central power and governing authority. The former recognized government of Bashir al Assad is currently forced to take shelter along the western coastal area where his Alawite tribes reside and where the Russians have use of naval facilities which provide Russia with warm water ports on the Mediterranean Sea. There are Kurdish Militias who are in control over the north and north eastern areas of Syria and are coordinating with the Kurdish Militias controlling northern areas in Iraq. Sunni terrorist groups such as al-Nusra and former al-Qaeda linked groups in control of large areas in central Syria. There are Druze tribes in the eastern and southern mountain areas. Israel controls the Golan Heights won during the Six Day War and held despite attacks from Syria during the Yom Kippur War and annexed these lands, as previous to Israel taking these heights there had been regular shelling of farmers as well as often having snipers practicing their skills shooting farmers and other Israelis without any warning almost as sport. Finally, the Islamic State, which has proven to be proud of their horrific and gruesome methods, has executed and captured individuals including civilians and numerous captives taken from the civilian populations in the areas their control often charging them with insult of Islam, Allah or other laws according to the Islamic State definitions of Sharia and observance of Islam. There is no means of reaching any peace with Syria until there is peace in Syria.


In Israel’s favor is that two adversaries, Egypt and Jordan respectively, have reached a peace and have kept that peace, albeit a cold peace, and even managed some coordination when mutual advantage was the result. Israel is currently assisting Jordan supplying them water and additional electricity alleviating some of the demands made by the refugees from Syria who have fled to Jordan. Coordination between Israel and Egypt have been more concrete in that both have difficulties with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza and concerns over terrorist and fighting which has flared in the Sinai Peninsula. Israel has provided assistance with intelligence on activities in the Sinai and Egypt has kept a mutually beneficial blockade on Gaza both on land and sea in order to block weapons or transfers of personnel between Gaza and Egypt, especially weapons into Gaza and terror personnel from Gaza into the Sinai. Well, appears to be no real problems and even potentials for improvement over time between Israel and her neighbors Jordan and Egypt.


Well, how about the big Arab nation, Saudi Arabia. Well, currently the Saudi authorities have had to field and downplay if not completely deny rumors that they have been coordinating with Israel almost acting as if they were normal nations with full agreements in place. Well, this sure is interesting as technically Saudi Arabia never reached any peace agreement with Israel since the war between the two nations as part of the six nations which attacked Israel the very first morning of Israeli existence as a nation on May 15, 1948. Actually, Israel and Saudi Arabia were revealed to possibly have been working in conjunction, with Saudi Arabia potentially offering to permit Israeli pilots to refuel in Saudi air space and for stricken pilots who required emergency assistance returning from an attack on Iranian nuclear sites permission to use certain military airfields in Saudi Arabia according to leaked information by sources within the United States. The American sources were reputed to be the same which also would out plans for Israel to rent the use of military airfields in Azerbaijan in an attack on the Iranian nuclear sites. These are all rumored events and the claims that the leaks originated from within the administration of President Obama while others claim it was from within the United States Department of State. Such sourcing is less important than whether these leaks were real or imagined and whether the rumors of Israeli coordination with Saudi Arabia or Azerbaijan. Even the hint of cooperation from any Arab or Islamic nation with the Jewish State, Israel, is sufficient to bring about great commotions and denials from the rumored guilty state. Still, such rumors do tell much about the relations and some of the challenges faced by Israel when it comes to relations with her neighboring nations.


North of Israel is the nation of Lebanon who has had three wars with Israel over the last three quarters of a century. That is since before Israel was founded and Lebanon was amongst the six nations attacking Israel on her first day in existence. Making any progress between Lebanon and Israel will require a basic alteration in the leadership of Lebanon as currently Hezballah controls the Lebanese governance. A recognized terrorist organization being in control of the parliament of one’s nation and their hand chosen representative serving as Prime Minister does mean there can be no normalized relations with Israel. Lebanon was a predominantly Christian nation and over time has slowly but inexorably been Islmisized. This has been done initially in a terror war when Yasser Arafat and the PLO were evicted from Jordan after attempting to overthrow the King and government in the Black September attempted coup. This led to the First Lebanon War when Israel responded to pleas for help by Lebanese Christians. Since that war, which included an invasion by Syria at the presumed request of the Muslims, the society has faced numerous terrorist uprisings and steady pressure forcing the Christian population to emigrate mostly to Europe and the United States. This has slowly changed the character of the country and Lebanon will likely never return to Christian majority population and the governance will also be altered by this erosion. There will not be peace with Lebanon as Hezballah has started claiming that Israel is occupying the Galilee which has been part of Israel and recognized as Israeli land as it is entirely south of the Blue Line, the United Nations surveyed and recognized border between Israel and Lebanon.


So, finally we will investigate the Palestinian situation. The realization that the Arab nations would be unable to easily destroy Israel through military actions alone and the world viewing the Arab Israeli problem as being the Goliath Arab world fighting the David Israelis who were at a monstrous numerical disadvantage. The solution to this was to create a false flag to fight Israel supported by the Arab world, and the Palestinians were invented and chose to mirror the Jewish or Israelite history. They also adopted the idea of the big lie stated consistently and over a long period of time will become the accepted truth. The fact that the Israelis still have not set forth any opposing viewpoint leaves the public believing that the world would know the truth and that should be sufficient. It has not been anywhere near enough. The Palestinians have had one overriding aim, the complete destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Israeli population, particularly the Jewish population and any other non-Muslims. The misconception sold by the Palestinian Authority and their followers has been that there was a nation of Palestine which Israel replaced. They point to the 1948 war which was started by six Arab nations and additional forces against Israel and had nothing to do with any mythical nation of Palestine. The name Palestinian before 1948 was used almost exclusively to denote the Jews as the Arabs were simply known as the Arabs remarkably enough. The Palestine Brigade which fought alongside the British was made up almost entirely of Jews from the territories of Palestine. The territories of Palestine were eventually made into two nations, an Arab nation of Jordan and the Jewish nation of Israel. The Arab world refused to accept this and attempted to destroy Israel by force attacking as noted above on Israel’s first day of existence, May 15, 1948.


The next question is exactly what have the Palestinian Arab representatives claimed they demand to end their violence. The reality is different from what politicians in the Western developed world claim it is and more strictly follow the line of the demonstrators and agitators who take their leads from Ramallah. The Western developed world politically correct and reality stunted politicians claim all Mahmoud Abbas and his merry gang of thugs desire is to have their own nation cut from Judea and Samaria which legally belong to Israel. Meanwhile, the BDS protesters who take their marching orders from the sponsors and originators of their movement in Ramallah, the ones who sought further assistance in the Israel boycott movement helping the Arab boycott, divestment and sanction program against Israel run by Ramallah, demanded exactly what Mahmoud and his fellow thugs have been demanding, from the river to the sea. As the Arab Palestinian Authority is modeled after the Jewish drive through the centuries which finally reached fruition during the treaty talks after World War I when other nationalistic claims were made and recognized and the San Remo Conference spelled out the map of Israel which just so happened to stretch from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Thus we have the BDS groups parroting the demand from Ramallah of, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” This begs whatever do they mean by free? This demand is firstly free of Jews. Next is free of non-Muslims. Finally free of even Muslims who disagree with the leadership in Ramallah which would include Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and a majority of Arab Palestinians who desire the removal of Mahmoud Abbas. It is this desire to replace Mahmoud Abbas that has stymied any hope the Arab Palestinians might have for holding elections and has nothing whatsoever to do with Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has allowed to stand the order that all of the lands from the British Mandate are to be an Islamic WAQF or holy ordained Muslim enclave, every last grain of sand. East of the Jordan there is the original Arab state of Jordan but the Arab design is for another Arab state on all the remainder of the lands west of the Jordan River. This is the origins of the protesters’ chant of, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.”


Further backing this claim on all the land has been Arafat’s demand which became Abbas’s demand that the Arab cause would continue on their liberation activities even should they receive their own recognized state as that state would be but merely the launching pad for the violent takeover of the remainder of Israel. Abbas even has taken claim to all of what is today Israel when he accepted a full sized map of Israel during one of the celebrations where the people are made to chant the River to the Sea protest song (see below). Often Abbas’s statement that all he requires is to receive twenty-four percent of the land is interpreted as a demand for the lands of Gaza and the West Bank which are around twenty-two percent of what would otherwise be Israel as defined in international treaties. This was a selfless man who demanded a mere twenty two percent of the land. The reality is that the lands west of the River represent almost exactly twenty-two percent of the original Mandate Lands. That is why the ceremony pictured below is of such great importance to the Palestine replacing Israel movement. The pictured event below could have taken a photograph anywhere in Ramallah with anybody representing Israel as pictured below. This picture was given to Abbas as a sign of solidarity during one of the numerous Arab summit meetings which are always scheduled just as often for kicking off the next intifada or reaching a new understanding ending the concluding wave of violence. These presentations are given massive coverage in the media in Europe but are seen less often by Americans as the American media is not government controlled, just the American media is chosen for depicting the government accomplishments and offering forth the latest and greatest peace proposal. This peace proposal was the surrender of all of Israel, an event they see as inevitable as many in the West, especially the United States, are ready to sacrifice all of Israel on the funeral pyre of Western society in Europe.


Abbas Accepting Map Depicting Palestine Replacing all of Israel and Looking Extremely Pleased


So, in a twisted manner it really is Israel which is the greatest threat as Israel is the stopper standing between the Islamic Middle East and the formerly Christian Europe. It is of great importance that the death of Christianity in Europe will become the main recognized fact behind the complete loss of will to protect what has been built. It is exactly the willingness of Israel to resist and fight for her identity as the sole Jewish State standing between an awakening of Islamic supremacy and the death of faith in Europe. It was in part because of the Israeli willingness to take in all of the Jews displaced after World War I which facilitated the formation of Israel. This was of great importance to the Zionists seeking a return to their native lands and rebuilding the modern society with Jerusalem as its character. The lands where Israel was separated for the new nation were refuted by Islamic sensibilities which demanded that the land remain ruled over by Muslims. This demand led directly to the backing of Hamas, as the Muslim Brotherhood aligned group against Fatah which was the secular entity, which left the Jewish State as the least likely to become self-governing as the land was seemingly destined to remain under Islamic rule. The Zionists proved to be the dominant group within the area and this directly forced the decisions to permit Israel to be the Jewish State to come to fruition. Even the British White Papers which attempted to limit Jewish integration into the society under seventy-five-thousand per year proved insufficient to prevent the Jews from reaching the Holy Lands through whatever means was available. This was followed by the Arab and Muslim nations expelling their Jews over the first fifteen years after Israel was recognized. Most of these Jews had all their wealth taken by the Arabs as they left facing annihilation if they had remained. With limited funds, unless they had relatives in Europe or the United States, these Jews found their way to Israel which gladly accepted these Jews. This was the first result which proved Israel would accept any Jewish refugees from anywhere in the world, a pledge tested numerous times and Israel rose to meet every challenge facing world Jewry throughout her existence.


The threat Israel poses to Islam is preventing their marching straight through Europe, and from there conquering the Americas, Africa and eventually Asia and the rest of the world. Israel is and always has been the beating heart of the Jewish people and their dream of their heavenly Holy Lands which seemingly only bloom when the Jews hold these lands. This has been borne out by history and is obvious even today as one can compare the Israeli economy and accomplishments compared to Gaza, West Bank, Lebanon and anywhere throughout these areas which does not have oil wealth. The stark difference is astounding and can be recognized from high altitudes as Israel is a green jewel amidst sand colored dead earth. Israel is a necessary and crucial part of any defense of the Western way of life and as a central base for operations and any sabotage of any Arab push into Europe as well as serving as an advanced intelligence gathering unit. Finally, Israel is a leader in drone technology, security software, encryption and fully capable of designing software for virtually every scenario. Israel will prove to be the protector of the world for as long as she holds the strategic lands. Israel may serve as the launch site for any actual defense. Israel is the lynchpin linking Asian Culture, the Indian Culture, African Culture and European Culture. Throughout history wars were fought over these lands as their centrality to the many different trade routes and its religious significance made Jerusalem one of if not the most desirable city on the planet. The way the world is starting to shape up bodes of a coming storm which will center upon Israel once more except this time Israel will survive intact and those attempting to conquer her will simply smash their armies and war machines to pieces as Israel stands preventing the further spread of Islam in her area which traditionally was the jumping off point into Roman Empire and it was the walls of Acre which withstood being conquered in modern times (at least until this final war to end warring as the means to settle disputes finding a more advantageous route). There is a great possibility that a long anticipated fight will finally take place where the future, if any, will be decided between Islam, Judaism, Christianity and religious freedom once and for all on the plains of Megiddo.

Pope Francis, during his visitation to the Holy Lands, was sure to make a very public statement over the plight of the Palestinian Arabs as he made a highly publicized stop at the exact section of the security barrier where Pope Francis claimed to make a prayer for a unified Arab Palestinian State emphasizing the proposed relationship to, as scrawled on that very section of the barrier, the similarity of the Warsaw Ghetto’s walls and the Israeli built security barrier, a separation object that is largely a fence but along certain stretches is required to be an actual wall such as within heavily built up areas so that it also keeps bullets and explosives from being easily launched into Israeli areas safeguarding both Arabs and Jews of all religions and all others from terrorist assaults on their lives and which has resulted in a highly effective tool in preventing homicide/suicide bombers, homicidal vehicle attacks and sniper attacks of various varieties bringing such attacks down to becoming a rarity compared to previous attacks before the barrier was constructed. Further, Pope Francis made it publically emphasized that his trip began with meetings with Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinians which he made sure to enter from Jordan flying initially into the Jordanian capital city of Amman specifically to avoid any possible meeting with Israeli officials. The Pope went further as he make a long procession, almost a victory parade, accompanied by numerous Arab Palestinian leadership from Bethlehem to Jerusalem emphasizing in his remarks the plight and flight from Bethlehem of its once predominant Christian population making heavy implications that such a sorry state of affairs had everything to do with Israeli ‘occupation’ and the hardships caused by the Israeli government, meaning the Jewish People, completely absolving the Arab Palestinians and their history of antagonism and persecution of the Christians causing the massive flight in fear for their lives from threats and actual terrorist aggressions.


This was followed by a visit to Israel where Pope Francis had a totally different persona becoming somewhat aggressive and antagonistic demanding the Catholic Church be granted their inalienable rights to ownership of large areas of Jerusalem with special emphasis on newly made claims to the building which houses the gravesite of King David claiming the room above King David’s tomb was a possible Christian Holy Site where the Last Supper had recently been claimed to have taken place moving it from the previous traditional spot where there were no contentious claims to this aggressively contentious place where it placed this Christian site above and over a highly Jewish site and further the Pope demanded rights to offer prayer services, a privilege granted and almost immediately abused by attempting to hold such prayers specifically on days where Jews had particularly offered up prayers from the site and taking assurances to hold these prayer before the scheduled Jewish services thus intentionally making the site void for Jewish prayer. The Pope was far from done with his assault on Judaism as well as launching additional assaults on Israel and Israeli claims within the Holy Lands in general at times appearing to insinuate obliquely that the Jews were without any religious claims as they were no longer recognized as having any religious rights having been supplanted and superseded making void any Jewish religiously made claims having been replaced by Christianity.


This particular claim made by the Pontiff has ramifications beyond the replacement theology where it is postulated that the Jews have become damned as replaced as the chosen people by the Christians, the Pope would claim the Catholic Church, and no longer favored by the L0rd and cast forth from Jerusalem specifically and without claims throughout the Holy Lands. Pope Francis has, by renewing the replacement theology of the past, set the precedent that Hashem can and has broken vows and promises made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, King David and others which identified the Jewish People as those chosen to carry His Message to the rest of the world has been abrogated and transferred to the Catholic Church which makes the supersessions claimed by Islam claiming that the Christians have themselves been cast off as were the Jews making the Muslims not only the replacement in eyes of Hashem but also the final chosen peoples to carry forth the messages of Hashem and, going one step further, the ones chosen to rule all of humanity going even further afield of a similar claim indigenous to the Christian faith as Judaism never held that the world would be their inheritance, they claimed only a rather insignificant measure of land strategic only in its central location to Europe, Africa and Asia being the region where the three continents converge and having ports which can connect the two main trade routes which have since been serviced by the Suez Canal.


The reassertion of the policy of the Catholic Church having replaced the Jews as those having a covenant with Hashem has left the Catholic Church also subjected to being replaced as the chosen of Hashem which is exactly the claim made by Islam. Carrying the replacement and the sole holy religion has also seen both Catholicism, in the more native guise of Christianity, and Islam to thus interpret such to authorize their sovereignty over the entire planet in order for them to properly prepare for the return of Jesus which had been carried one step further by the Islamic extremists claim that their religion being the sole religion Divinely inspired as the replacement, the final replacement of both Judaism and Christianity not only should rule over all of Earth but also be the sole religion practiced by all mankind. This has been carried out to the letter by ISIS as well as being the stated end goal by Iran, Hamas, Hezballah and various other claimants to being the sole pure remaining practitioners of Islam as defined by Muhammad and is behind a very real threat being made by ISIS and a number of their adherents. The agents for ISIS in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), why that redundancy is required by all that is politically correct makes me really desire to cease the practice, and I shall endeavor to do so going forth, are requesting for a list of all the Christians residing in (East) Jerusalem and their addresses to be given to those ISIS representatives by the faithful of Muhammad, note that not all are claiming faithful to ISIS following the practice of deference when outnumbered and until gaining sufficient numbers, somewhere around twenty percent, before becoming more forceful and soon thereafter, around thirty-five percent, taking rule by force and demanding total and complete allegiance followed by choice of becoming part of the faithful as defined by ISIS to the sword, otherwise death. They want these lists as soon as possible such that they can make the necessary plans and make sure they have the necessary power and people to carry out an ethnic cleansing of the Christians residing in Eastern Jerusalem. They have not requested such a list of the Jews residing within the area as they likely believe that those entire neighborhoods are easily known and identifiable.


This list will necessarily be assembled with an assault plan in mind by which the vast majority of the Christians residing in Eastern Jerusalem will be forced from the area implied by the sword and not by choice but such will probably be a logistics driven decision. The ISIS planners will take the precaution of having sufficient deployment of forces such that each unit will have a flanking unit on either side or at a close proximity allowing the massing of forces should any resistance be mounted such that they can quickly and without sacrificing their intended missions gather sufficient force to swarm any resistance counting on numbers to turn the tide of battle. Such has been the tactic used by ISIS as well as preparing the area for their assault before-hand. Not possessing sufficient artillery ISIS instead uses vehicle bombs and homicide/suicide bombers to soften their intended targets instilling confusion and disorganization amongst their intended target before they follow-up with swarming the target neutralizing any recovery minimizing their target any time to regroup and form a coordinated counterattacks or even an organized defense with overlapping fields of fire and the other considerations usually carried out well in advance and practiced including tactics of the enemy being interjected at unannounced times to test procedures for just such scenarios. The target in this instance is basically a cleansing operation intended to either clear an area of any opposition or make clear that certain types residing within an area should necessarily depart before they too face the determined business end of an ISIS representative’s weapon. Their announced target date for this cleansing of the population for Allah is the final day of Ramadan which falls in July 16, 2015.


The first determination which must be realized by Israeli police and military forces is whether to act as an intervention in force early on and prevent the organization of ISIS forces, wait until they have gathered so as to maximize arrests, intervene as soon as the assembled ISIS forces pose a threat or to simply ignore the threat and only respond to calls in an usual manner leaving the Arab Palestinians pretty much to their own ability. The final option is actually an option not supported by Torah and Jewish Law as we are directed to protect human life as even the lowest amongst us, the beggar, the infirm, the stranger and others we might normally divert our attentions from are still lives we are commanded to care for and keep safe. The concept that each life is potentially an entire nation thus if one saves one life it is as if one has saved a world. That basically means that Israeli defense and law enforcement forces must be prepared for and the one which is most feasible resulting in there being no loss of life be the ones sent for further considerations. Another consideration should be by which of the tactics that prevents any innocent casualties would allow for the most ruinous of setbacks for ISIS and at the same time making their claims of bringing the reincarnation of the Caliphate into question. There needs to be one more principled consideration, the threat to Israeli personnel and citizens, not to claim that any one life is of greater importance than another as that is beyond our ability to reason and is best left to the Creator who knows all things, Hashem. There is one consideration which must be made initially; which is whether or not this threat posed is valid and thus worthy of making and practicing for such an eventuality. Most ISIS threats issued have proven to be real and worthy of notice, but that does not necessarily mean that this attack threat must automatically be considered valid. This threat might be being presented to gauge the level of Israeli response to threats in order to more closely study the anatomy of such a response. Whatever the reasoning behind such a threat, Israeli leadership can be assured they will be held totally responsible for any casualties outside Israeli personnel. Any other nation would be the recipient of sympathy and offers of assistance with the aftermath with support in repairing any damage, aid money to augment responses training in preparation as if there is a singular attack response which would be universally applied to every attack and resolve all problems and serious planning for special situations such as a visit and speech by another head of state.


The importance of responding both effectively and forcefully against any initial attack while not going to an overboard approach cannot be overestimated in this instance. Should Israel present an overly cautious and overt response to this particular threat, then ISIS planners would have an effective but simple approach to fomenting fear within Israel by simply pretending to plan an attack and allow the overt, heavy-handed Israeli ramping-up of security measures. Fortunately, for actual events such as parades, speeches and other events or places where people congregate such as train and bus stations and malls; Israel does a fabulous and renowned level of successful security to meet the requirement necessary for each location and expected crowd. Since all ISIS would need to do to estimate the Israeli response to any situation would be to go study any previous similar situation and view the control of the threat level caused and they would have their answer. Pushing a threat against Israel on her own soil and thus giving her home field advantage will simply make everything that much more difficult for ISIS. In this instance Israel will be required to bring to the table an actual threat assessment and response plan as should ISIS actually follow through on a mission to slaughter as many civilian innocents, almost especially any of the numerous minority populations, as Israel is held to the highest expectation of levels possible in the world. Israel is the only nation expected to be capable of providing on a consistent and near universal level security superior to any European nation, any Western nation and even particularly the United States. Israeli security is expected to match when provided for the most insignificant of those amongst us a level of public security roughly the equivalent of that provided the Queen of England, and Israel has thus far throughout her brief but situation filled history met that challenge almost universally; Baruch Hashem. Anybody wishing an actual example of similar situations and the difference between Israeli response and another nation with proper expectations of being capable in a security situation such as a hostage crisis, simply compare the handling of the 1972 Olympic Games abduction of the Israeli team in Munich where most of the Israeli team consisting of six Israeli coaches and five Israeli athletes were taken hostage and ended up murdered along with one German police officer while five Black September members were eliminated in the regrettable failed rescue attempt where the plans for the rescue operation were poorly executed and all of the requested aid did not arrive on scene until two hours after the stand-off and siege began leading to the conflagration that murdered most of the Israelis tied up in the helicopter which was detonated with a grenade thrown by one of the terrorists compared to the Entebbe raid by an elite IDF unit responding to the hijacking of an Air France flight and the holding of Israeli and Jewish passengers and crew numbering over one hundred victims at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, a distance of over 2,500 miles (4,000 km) in Operation Entebbe, as it came to be known, on July 4, 1976 (giving Israelis a reason to celebrate on as high a level as the people in the United States could on that nation’s bicentennial celebrations) where all but four of the one-hundred-six hostages were rescued with the IDF team suffering five injured and a sole fatality of one of the team commanders and older brother to a future Israeli Prime Minister, Lt. Col. Yonatan Netanyahu, and all of the terrorists either killed or injured along with almost half of the approximately one hundred Ugandan military troops providing security for the terrorists. Israel had offered assistance and even to handle a rescue attempt with the German government who not only refused the Israeli offer but informed Israeli government officials that any Israelis sent to Germany would be refused entry at the airport and returned to Israel as this was a German operation and Israel had no right to interfere. Perhaps the Germans should have turned it over to the Israelis and thus make Israel responsible for the results.


But what is it they say about history, it is what it is and physics has not yet figured out how to alter history, only politicians and the media have such power. That is why when the history is written about the July 16, 2015 ISIS Ramadan assault intending to murder every Christian possible throughout Eastern Jerusalem the only credit or blame for this intended catastrophe in the manner of the cleansing of Mosul, the destruction of the two-thousand-eight-hundred-year-old capital of the Assyrian empire, Khorsabad, including its seven gates and the city with its most highly regarded sixty-four foot wall erected around 713 BCE by King Sargon II during his reign and nearly completely demolished in the beginning of the twenty-first century (or the fifteenth century on the Islamic calendar), parts of which have been preserved in museums in Baghdad, Paris, London and Chicago; destroyed thousands of books in libraries across the lands they have savagely rampaged with some of the books such as the rare books in Mosul are irreplaceable and singular remnants of wisdom and writings from ancient to the modern times; reintroduced slavery on a massive scale and especially the selling of woman as sexual slaves to the highest bidder, some women have been returned for receipt of a percentage of her resale price; burned, drowned, prisoners alive; shot, and beheaded people sentenced to death for even minor offences or taken prisoner; crucified Christians; blown apart prisoners shoved into a car with anti-tank missile; taken sledge hammers to ancient sculptures, vases, pottery destroying ancient displays in museums; and promised to bring this parade of horrors to every corner of the globe should they be allowed that possibility. This is the assembly of monsters across continents with fellow travelers identifying and subjugating their will all in a similar vein such as Boko Haram in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad; and other equally offensive and revolting acts all threatening to replace the comfortable lives of the decadent Western world should they be given that chance. That is their promise and where is the response from the supposed civilized world? They are either leading from behind or covering the back of the leader leading from behind all in all leaving Israel to fight the world’s war and stop the advance of those who desire a return to the tenth century, a backwards jolt on either calendar, especially the Jewish calendar which is in the fifty-eighth century.

Is it a simple case of one of those strange quirks which history will muse over or is it a divine sign that the man who removed the Muslim Brotherhood horrors from governing Egypt and answered the cries of his people winning him the prized office of Egyptian President has a name which as spelled in English transliteration is the exact reverse of the English initials of the newest and most deadly allies of the Muslim Brotherhood, thus we have Egyptian President Sisi now facing forces from ISIS, Sisi vs. ISIS (and as we have said before, we pronounce ISIS as is, is thus it all depends on what the meaning of Is-is, is.) Now for the existing and coming horrors and the potential coming allies who have worked silently and in only the most untraceable means to support each other’s efforts in the Sinai Peninsula as well as Gaza may become all too public and by doing so be one of the most important ends of the coming series of conflagrations. There may be no choice for the Egyptian forces for success in forcing both the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic State allied fighters from the Sinai Peninsula as President Sisi knows that he must not commit the entire strength of the Egyptian military into any sweep of the Sinai. Further, there are many within the Egyptian military whose villages and relatives live and are amongst if not having actually joined the Muslim Brotherhood or potentially joined the new Caliphate of ISIS and thus President Sisi and his generals are aware that they can only use troops specially chosen and known for their complete loyalty and discipline. Even those chosen for regular checkpoint or other daily military or security assignments are likely chosen carefully. One can bet that President Sisi probably witnessed, and not just knows of, the historic assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat by disgruntled members of the Egyptian military who were far more loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood.


There are many who will claim that there is nothing which would permit the presumably secular Muslim Brotherhood and the fanatical religious ISIS to form any alliance despite the truth that the Muslim Brotherhood spawned al-Qaeda which established the Iraqi organization for al-Qaeda from which ISIS was spawned. The reality is that the Muslim Brotherhood is a religiously based organization whose credo states that “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.” Where the Muslim Brotherhood has somewhat of a secular view is when it comes to governance that they claim to support a socialist governance which holds elections until the Muslim Brotherhood gains control over the national governance and then such inconveniences become less important. What has been overlooked in this false dichotomy is that the Muslim Brotherhood has not made any statement concerning their position on should the Caliphate be reestablished. By their apparent coordination in horrific and deadly assault on the Egyptian checkpoints and other positions throughout the Sinai Peninsula both the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS displayed a level of cooperation that should put to bed any doubts about their levels of agreement.


Further, there was obvious coordination and cooperation given these operations which included arms and other logistics from within Gaza provided by Hamas which should put to bed not only any doubts about Hamas working with their parent group, the Muslim Brotherhood, but also their cooperation and general support for ISIS and the willingness of ISIS to work willingly and knowingly with Hamas. This coordinated and seamless planning and execution of an assault on this level provides all the evidence necessary to prove that there is recognition and compliance with the authority granted to ISIS to lead the efforts of the Islamist groups and puts to lie the claims that ISIS was planning to go to war with Hamas but instead should provide all the evidence that the recent breakup of the Fatah unity government with Hamas was initiated by Hamas as they were already planning coordinated and supportive efforts with ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood against the government of President Sisi in Egypt. The thing which needs to be given the greatest amount of concern should be the replacement of Fatah and the Arab Palestinian Authority by the ISIS led, Muslim Brotherhood supported Hamas takeover of the Arab Palestinian operations in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) presenting Israel with the challenge of operations in Judea and Samaria taking on a whole new level of violence and coordinated threats should Fatah be defeated or simply collapse as any support it once enjoyed changing horses and moving to give their loyalties to the ISIS led Sunni Islamist merging of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood into the ranks of ISIS.


This brings us to the facing off against a mutual foe between Egypt and Israel and the potential for coordination and potentially joint missions within the Sinai Peninsula as well as throughout Gaza between Israel and Egypt. This would mean a deeper level of coordination beyond simply intelligence sharing and the mere coordination of movements to assure that the two sides do not reach a point where they might interfere with each other’s execution of operations to a level where the coordinated and complimentary operations are planned with the aim of mutual strengthening the other’s effectiveness. There would also be situations, especially within Gaza, where operational support for Egyptian operations within Gaza would be granted close in air support and ground use of sorties from artillery fire to compliment one another’s operational effectiveness. Such coordination between Egyptian military operations, especially when such operations would require informing Israel of the size and scope of Egyptian operation in the Northern Sinai and especially such operations that may extend necessarily into Gaza, as all such in-force operations by Egypt are required to be cleared through Israel according to their peace treaty and supportive accords and also to avoid clashes between the two nations which could easily spiral out of control dissolving any gains made between the two nations in building trusts and peace. Such sharing of intelligence and potential coordination of operations even, if simply done to avoid direct confrontations which could arise as a result of a friendly-fire incident where both sides were attempting to establish their control over a particular objective, be that objective a central strongpoint or the eradication of a permanent large rocket and missile launch site in order to silence its use against both sides, as such a dedicated site would pose a definitive set of difficulties to any operations.


Cooperation between Israel and Egypt would not be an entirely new event as the levels of cooperation have been exercised previously as to who would take the lead position in apprehending any vessels attempting to break the blockade of Gaza which has been in effect since the Hamas takeover of the region from Fatah. This has been evidenced when on multiple occasions Egypt, both when under Mubarak and now under Sisi, when ships tried to smuggle by circumventing the Israeli blockade by hugging the Egyptian coast of the north of the Sinai Peninsula the Egyptians had a surprise for them, they guarded against such efforts as President Sisi and his government have had just as much to fear from Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza as has Israel. Egypt has had just as tight a closed border with Gaza as has Israel and in some ways an even tighter closure as no aid reaches Gaza in any manner, let alone comparable to the multiple tonnage crossing daily into Gaza, daily even during the entirety of the Gaza War Operation Protective Edge last summer. Egypt has had better effectiveness in finding and closing tunnels under their border with Gaza which are used to smuggle things in and out of Gaza as has Israel in locating the infiltration tunnels which caused such a stir as the IDF had appeared completely surprised by the extensive tunnel system Hamas had been planning to utilize in a massive operation against the Israelis during the High Holy Days last year. Keeping the borders controlled has been a primary effort of both Egypt and Israel as both have suffered threats from within Gaza with the Egyptian threats having often been estimated and paid in lives for any missed tunnels by the Egyptians often lead to infiltrations into the Sinai Peninsula in the form of manpower and also weaponry and explosives for the design of car and truck bombs, IEDs (improvised explosive device used in place of land mines) and other explosive delivery methods and systems which are as varied in kind as they do in their delivery. The reality has been that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and numerous other terrorist groups have just as much hate for the Sisi government as they do towards Israel.


With ISIS moving into the Sinai Peninsula one has to wonder what there objective may be. Thus far there has been little to no change across the Negev-Sinai border and there have been the usual ramping up of terrorist strikes which accompany summer but surprisingly much of that can be attributed to problems in Judea and Samaria. What has been somewhat disconcerting has been the increase in attacks in Judea and Samaria claimed to have been attributable to Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The one item which had been surprising which this assault upon the Egyptian forces and the particulars have put to rest were the dire warnings that there was a definitive expectation for a war in Gaza waged by ISIS against Hamas and potentially Islamic Jihad. Something about the threat has seemed strange, especially the ISIS against Hamas warnings as in so many ways Hamas and ISIS appear to be natural allies. The only thing which made sense about these threats was they were disinformation though the target escaped reason, well, until now. The intended target of ISIS being out to overthrow Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood was more about throwing off any investigation by the Egyptians into the validity of these claims and the simple overlooking of things being exactly the opposite. The three have been cooperating and this past week the blood soaked reality came crashing home with all the signals coming together all at one time putting to lie the ISIS against Hamas false flag arguments. The similarities between Hamas and ISIS has been a major part in the explanation by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as early as last summer when explaining why it had been paramount that Operation Protective Edge be fought with much the same ferocity which had been reserved thus far for only ISIS by Western interests. But even back then there had appeared to Israeli sources of intelligence that Hamas and ISIS were natural allies which is why more efforts had been expelled into drawing out and eliminating ISIS cells in Judea and Samaria than in Gaza.


Apparently Israel had best ramp up their surveillance in seeking out and destroying ISIS cells in Judea and Samaria as they could easily be precursors to Hamas making their new move to replace the current Fatah centered Arab Palestinian Authority with one which places Hamas and ISIS to enter into Judea and Samaria replacing Fatah and Mahmoud Abbas. This was the expected move which may have found Hamas and ISIS working together to gain additional leverage against Israel by taking over the entirety of the Arab Palestinian Authority, something that with Hamas would have already occurred had Abbas ever permitted the Arabs in Judea and Samaria to be able to vote for their own government, something Abbas has been refusing to allow knowing full well that as soon as elections were held that he would fall from power. Apparently the threats of an ISIS-Hamas war in Gaza worked if its intention was allowing the two to have close cooperation setting up this assault on Egypt. Perhaps this is the main event of this coming summer, an alliance which will have Gaza spread its tentacles and wrest power from Abbas giving it to Haniyeh, the former Prime Minister in Gaza before resigning last year to permit the formation of a unity government. Hamas leader Haniyeh knew he was risking nothing despite appearances to the contrary. The ruse was an effort to try to force Abbas to finally allow Arab elections across Gaza, Judea and Samaria. The effort failed to materialize and perhaps the one unknown may have been the undoing of the carefully laid out, years in the making, plan. This unknown was the extent in which ISIS had infiltrated into the Arab Palestinian society. What made knowing this impossible was the fact that there could have been untold numbers of disenchanted Arab Palestinians tired of never being allowed the vote over who controlled their governance. This could have produced fertile growing lands for the ISIS message of rules as written in the Quran. Life by the structures dictated in the Quran might have appealed except many in Judea and Samaria did not desire something more along the lines of a Constitution that would have permitted the enshrining of modern rights and society. Sharia was not what many Arab Palestinians desire as they have witnessed how the Israeli society has produced people very happy with their lives and their society despite the threats of terrorism. They see a people who are slowly but inexorably moving to realize the advantages of a religious life but also realizing that religious life must not be imposed by government and that the only control the religion should have on the governance are the Biblical limitations through which government is prevented from enriching those in its service and that government must serve the people it is in the end responsible to care for. Government cares for the people, and the people do not need to be made subservient in any manner to their government and this is best realized by assuring that there never comes a ruling elite who have usurped unto themselves through government or economic means the ability to enslave the people. The people are what are to be kept as noble and government should act noble but never be permitted to become nobles. This is why Sharia will always be an impossible sell to those who have known true freedom and liberty. The fact that many of the older Palestinians who remember freedom and elections having meaning who will be the saviors of the Arab Palestinian society providing they step forward in the short term and teach their society the beauty of living and celebrating life and not the opposite of existing in order to die with how one dies defines how they lived. One’s life must define ones death and by that we mean the tributes and loving memories they leave the world with after living and inspiring others by their lives. When a society starts to define one’s life by how they die prematurely and before their time then there is a society which serves Ba’al and has reinstituted child sacrifice, for what else can one call a society which reveres a child because they went out to serve their society and their god by an act of suicide, and even worse, a suicide which attempted to take as many who were full of life and living the best they were able as their victims in their sacrifice. Life is already too short; making one’s life tragically shorter is just that, a tragedy. A society that reveres those who chase death is a society doomed to destroy the very future it claims to promise. The slogan which must be at the bedrock of a society is to choose life, in all things and all ways choose life and use that life to help everyone else choose life and live a life which celebrates life.
