Where it would be near impossible that both men had their United Nations speech written by the same person; though, it did appear that somebody inspired the crafting such that they each played their part in a well scripted production. What has to be incorporated into these considerations is the ugly little surprise Abbas plans on hatching with an important assist he choreographed with French President Hollande during his quick stopover in Paris. The plan is with the full backing from France, Abbas will petition the United Nations Security Council for a Chapter Seven Resolution fully enforceable demand for a solution of the Palestinian conflict with Israel within three years otherwise a preset settlement will be enforced by any means necessary. The borders for the enforced settlement will, of course, be drawn around the pre Six Day War 1949 Armistice Lines, also called the Green Line, which returns Israel to her once undefendable borders with Jerusalem divided granting the entire Old City with the Temple Mount and the Western Wall to the Palestinians. This is the plan that France’s François Hollande gave Mahmoud Abbas his full support and backing for introducing to the United Nations Security Council during the intense and heightened levels of activity which seem to occupy Turtle Bay towards the end of September every year with the opening of the United Nations General Circus Assembly and the parade of tin pot dictators and oligarchic monarchs to the podium to vilify and impugn the leaders of the democratic free world. This year appears to be shaping up as a banner year tipping the scales well into the territory of the absurd.

Mahmoud Abbas led off speaking before President Obama and set the stage with his usual bombastic rhetoric castigating Israel as the greatest of evil of nations unsurpassed through the annals of history; beyond the Mongol Hordes, beyond the excesses of the Roman Emperor Caligula and unequaled even by Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. This coming from the man who arranged the financing, arranged the training and the overall coordination for the terrorist assault on the Munich Olympics where his trained and financed murderers enacted a grand spectacle before the cameras the world over which culminated in the slaughter of the Israeli Olympic team. During his speech, Mahmoud Abbas statements included accusing Israel of in this, “the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” of having, “chosen to make it a year of a new war of genocide perpetrated against the Palestinian people.” He further accused Israel of “launching its war on Gaza, by which its jets and tanks brutally assassinated lives and devastated the homes, schools and dreams of thousands of Palestinian children, women and men and in reality destroying the remaining hopes for peace.” Further, Abbas reiterated his string of lies against Israel including mention of “the third war waged by the racist occupying State in five years against Gaza, this small, densely-populated and precious part of our country.” Never mind that this was the third war initiated by Hamas by raining rockets onto Israeli towns, cities and Kibbutzim after, this time around, having abducted three Israeli teens and having murdered them disposing of their bodies in a shallow grave, but why ruin such a perfect rendition of fictions regaling the majority of the assembled representatives from the least reputable nations in our world. Abbas further into his speech laid out the reasoning which was supposed to mitigate the violence and rioting perpetrated by the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria or the rock ambushing of Israeli drivers by Palestinians and other assaults on Jews within Jerusalem by excusing their actions claiming, “We must also assume that no one will wonder anymore why extremism is rising and why the culture of peace is losing ground and why the efforts to achieve it are collapsing.” His resolution is that Israelis are destroying any possibility for a peaceful resolution to the situation despite his having to refused numerous offers for a Palestinians state, one such refusal even managed to infuriate President Clinton who laid the blame for his not managing to resolve the Palestinian Israeli conflict at the feet of the Palestinians and Yasser Arafat, the man whose shoes it can honestly be said Abbas has filled with the sane tenacity demanding that the sole resolution he will ever accept must include the complete destruction and elimination of Israel. Abbas insisted that the Palestinian will “not for a moment … abandon our humanity, our values and our ethics … and we will maintain the traditions of our national struggle established by the Palestinian Fedayeen and to which we committed ourselves since the onset of the Palestinian revolution in early 1965.” This may have been his sole slip as his giving the year of the initiation of the Palestinian struggle to destroy Israel as 1965 reveals a simple fact, their struggle began at least two years before there was any occupied or contested territories as the Six Day War did not occur until 1967; so who and what exactly were his Palestinian Fedayeen fighting against and for what offense or reason in 1965? That leaves only one answer should one honestly evaluate this slip, they were fighting then for exactly the same ideal and result. They now continue their fight, the eradication of Israel. Abbas even sets the date where Israel presumably established their colonizing ways after responding to an attack by Syria and Egypt and pleaded with Jordan not to join the conflict which they ignored by attacking across central Jerusalem in the second day of the Six Day War just as Abbas stated, “Israel refuses to end its occupation of the State of Palestine since 1967.”

In his lengthy and slanderous conclusions did manage to hold some jewels of truth, except that they twisted the reality to fit his dreamscape of reality. He pontificated, “It is impossible, and I repeat – it is impossible – to return to the cycle of negotiations that failed to deal with the substance of the matter and the fundamental question.” I agree with this thus far as negotiating with Abbas can only result in one of two eventualities, the end of Israel or the end of any possibility for peace as Abbas will reject anything less than Israel’s demise and thus will once again miss every opportunity. Then he finally introduced the initial introduction of his demand which will be the main theme of his entire visit at the United Nations when he said, “there is no value in negotiations which are not linked to a firm timetable for the implementation of this goal. The time has come to end this settlement occupation” Then he laid out his claim that is coming for there to be international forces sent to impose his nightmarish solutions when he pleaded, “The people of Palestine are actually the ones who need immediate international protection.”

Skip forward and we arrive with President Obama at the podium. Perhaps there is nothing to the seeming continuity where President Obama appeared to be answering Abbas and his apparent wish for a solution to be imposed so that the final solution between the Palestinians and Israelis would not be dependent on negotiations and a mutually reached agreement. While there can be serious doubt as whether President Obama favors Islamic nations over non-Islamic nations, there is little debate discounting his apparent animosity for Israel and particularly its Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu. President Obama’s initial introductory lines as he approached direct commentary on the future he suspects concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were uncritical and neutral as he stated, “We recognize as well that leadership will be necessary to address the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis. As bleak as the landscape appears, America will not give up on the pursuit of peace. Understand, the situation in Iraq and Syria and Libya should cure anybody of the illusion that the Arab-Israeli conflict is the main source of problems in the region. For far too long, that’s been used as an excuse to distract people from problems at home.” The rest of that section began to give a small hint that things were likely to get more critical as he added, “The violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. And that’s something worthy of reflection within Israel.”

The next sentence was when President Obama may have dropped the initial bombshell when he turned serious in his tone stating, “Because let’s be clear: The status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable.” Then came the driving impetus which makes the situation untenable and in desperate need of a resolution as he stated the obvious, “We cannot afford to turn away from this effort – not when rockets are fired at innocent Israelis, or the lives of so many Palestinian children are taken from us in Gaza.” Then he left things hanging by stating a bromide which would leave most critics scratching their heads trying to figure out where he had intended to go as he concluded this section of his speech stating, “So long as I am President, we will stand up for the principle that Israelis, Palestinians, the region and the world will be more just and more safe with two states living side by side, in peace and security.” So, where was the rest of the bombshell, or did we simply miss something somewhere in the middle which held more meaning and gave a clearer picture and he simply disguised his intentions by suspending it in the middle of a lot of diplospeak?

Where this may be hyperbole and exaggeration or simply misreading President Obama or it might be the real meaning and definition of his intentions couched in an oblique set of references which might mean what I think it does. The two lines came separated as he paused seemingly as if passing from one paragraph to the next and waiting for the teleprompter to pass beyond a blank space in the text. Before the pause he critiqued Israelis claiming, “The violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace.” Was this simply a reference to polling results he may have read where it stated that many Israelis were less than pleased that the recent conflict with Hamas ended before Hamas had been removed from Gaza and he interpreted the reaction of Israelis to this third conflict initiated by Hamas in the last five years and a feeling that to end these rocket attacks that Hamas would need be removed permanently to mean that Israelis desired a military resolution to the entire conflict or was it an accusation fired across the bow at Prime Minister Netanyahu and many of the leaders in the parties of the ruling coalition that they be more accommodating in order to allow negotiations to lead to a final solution and blaming Israel for the lack of peace, agreeing with the accusations made by Abbas? The next line was the pause before the storm, a throwaway line meant to place doubt if the previous line and the one following were part of the same thought and should be read together without this spacer where he added almost as a disarming giveaway, “And that’s something worthy of reflection within Israel.” Then followed the strong positing of what President Obama sees as necessary to end the seemingly never ending lack of progress stating plainly, “Because let’s be clear: The status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable.” This echoes the statements made by Abbas in his speech where he exclaimed, “It is impossible, and I repeat – it is impossible – to return to the cycle of negotiations that failed to deal with the substance of the matter and the fundamental question. The people of Palestine are actually the ones who need immediate international protection.” Add this to the likely advice which President Obama is likely to get from the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power who stated clearly in an interview just over a decade ago that she would not be adverse to providing troops to enforce a peace and protect the Palestinians from any aggressions by the Israelis. This all might be the initial indications that even should the United States not support Mahmoud Abbas when he requests action by the Security Council in placing a deadline for an agreed peace otherwise a solution be imposed forcing Israel to surrender all claims beyond the Green Line and surrender much of Jerusalem to the Palestinians facing an international military force that the United States will also not use its veto to prevent such a vote from passing. With the French already supporting this proposal and neither Russia or China likely to veto any such motion, though Russia could surprise the world, that would leave the only chance to defeat such a proposal to the British as most of the rest of the nations currently serving on the Security Council would definitely see such a motion favorably. Perhaps the best hope is for Abbas to be spooked enough by his own doubts to decide not to take the risk and instead do as he has done in the past and simply settle for a General Assembly vote which carries no real weight but makes him appear to have made strides and might serve to aid him in any upcoming elections. The one truth known about Abbas is he fears falling from power almost as much as he fears having to preside over a real nation where instead of blaming Israel he actually has to deliver on providing water, electricity, trash removal and all the other banalities expected of governments.

One item always comes into focus and refuses to wane or fade into the background and instead claims to be important and necessary to point out once again. I try to minimize it by sweeping it aside with the thought that anyone who visits here has already heard of this fact and it simply demands attention for those first time or new readers; so I fear I must give in. This has to do with President Obama on his first inauguration day in January of 2009. After being sworn in (twice if you believe the going rumors), eventually the newly instated President Obama made it to the solitude and quiet of the Oval Office and sat down to make the customary calls to world leaders. The item of note is which world leader President Obama made his first official phone conversation with, and that turned out to be Mahmoud Abbas, President of a fan club more than of an actual State. Fortunately Mahmoud Abbas is no longer number one on President Obama’s speed dial; that honor now is bestowed on Turkey’s first elected President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Still, the prominence given Abbas initially has always weighed heavy and helped explain the disdain for Israel and Netanyahu shown by President Obama in his first term and with the two speeches this fear of their teaming up still is haunting from deep in the dark recesses of my thoughts.

First off let me wish all a Shana Tova (שנה טובה). The wish for all is one filled with hopes for blessings and great wonders granting fulfillment and meeting all your needs at ample levels such that you are able to share your great fortune and blessings with others. May the world melt away with all its threats and menacing situations that will only grow more frightening if allowed to fester like a wound spreading its infectious poisons weakening the rest of the body of the surrounding societies. Still, for each of us we can always shut the troubled world out as we isolate ourselves in the safety and warmth of our personal castles, our little corner of the world where our decisions are the law of the manor. For the next day when again we are obliged to enter the world with all its threats and dangers which are more real and personal in some places than in others, let our steps find grace and protection from the threats and dangers which surround us each and every day. So, let us work to keep those parts of our world over which we have dominion be ordered and safe with considerations for doing that which will serve the better inspirations and avoid the poisons which are defined in the morning prayers as the evil inclinations. But still there are those threats, both near and far, which being beyond our control, consist of risks and perils which seem to escalate with each day that they are not effectively countered by those in governments with whom we have entrusted our safety and protection.

Today is also the start of the new year for the United Nations General Assembly where numerous leaders and people of prestige and importance, both perceived and actual, are given the podium where they often make speeches full of impressive words and pontifications which are full of sounds and fury but often signify little more than empty phrases. But interspersed there are those few who set in motion perils, threats and plots which endanger some in order to use the blunt power the United Nations is capable of putting in motion to grant one group favors through force of arms taking it from another group not favored in the eyes of the world which makes up the United Nations. Fortunately these threats are only encouraged and backed by the General Assembly where mob rule is the law of suggestion and little more as without the guarantee of military force there is no enforcement beyond the intimidations of popular opinion and raucous protests filled with criticisms of little minds while these same insisting demands are refused and voted down in the Security Council where the five powers which hold the greatest sway in this sole place where through Chapter Seven, the place of most serious concerns which deserve greater enforcement than their suggestions under Chapter Six, will set in motion demands which carry the force of the greatest powers in the world and the military pressures and enforcements which actually change the realities in the world.

There will once again this year be another charade with the little man demanding he be respected and that his demands be enforced and that those who he claims are stealing everything from his people, a people whose claims are made by repeating the actual history of the people they intend to destroy and vanquish taking the lands promised them by the entire world almost a century ago when the forerunner of the United Nations, the League of Nations, in a near unanimous vote granted these ancient people the rights to their homeland as described in one of the world’s oldest known manuscripts, but that must be overturned as everybody knows that their claim must be refused because they are not popular and are refused any consideration by so many people in the world and their numbers are so small they have no power to enforce their claims and we are populous and threaten any who are so impertinent as to refuse to support and give us everything we demand. These strange and verbose complaints have become a regular offering every year in September with the opening ceremonies at the United Nations where many pompous individuals go to be granted their moment in the limelight, but for this peculiar pontificator will once again make grand claims to the ancestral homeland of his people, a people whose origins can be traced all the way back to 1964 when Yasser Arafat with his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, formed the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and made the original claim to the lands of Palestine which were defined as all of the lands between the Jordanian held West Bank and the Egyptian held Gaza and the Mediterranean Sea and the Sinai to the south and Lebanon to the north, also one could describe this land as the lands within the Green Line, also known as Israel. Yasser Arafat is gone so we will not be privileged to have a little man with a three day beard, fatigues, despite never having been a soldier, a kefiyah carefully shaped to resemble a map of Israel, and a loaded revolver strapped to his side addressing the United Nations General Assembly armed in a city where owning a gun is near impossible in front of a gathering which presumably seeks and enforces peace, and this little man stood at the podium armed in the halls of the United Nations. Instead we will have his original second in command and who is a man of peace just as was his former boss, Yasser Arafat, the man who invented the hijacking of planes for political ransoms, we will hear from Mahmoud Abbas, some refer to him as Yasser Arafat in a suit, who will make the same tired demands that the Israelis, the Jews, the Zionists be forced to give his people their proper ancestral lands which they have lived in for, according to his claims earlier this year, for the last nine thousand years.

Abbas has never bothered to explain how this is possible as these very same lands have a written history which tells of the Israelites after their Exodus they conquering these lands from the Canaanites killing every last one as they were considered an abomination to G0d, no Arabs were present at that time. Later these lands were conquered by the Assyrians; there were no Arabs at that time. They were conquered by the Babylonians; there were no Arabs at that time. Next, these lands came under Persian rule as they swept across the area; there were no Arabs at that time. Then these same lands were conquered by the Greeks; still there were no Arabs at that time. Then the Romans rolled through these lands on their way to conquering the known world and this stretch of land was on the way to Egypt; there still were no Arabs in these lands. The Judeans, the remaining tribe of the Israelites, were a restless and rancorous people who did not take well to being ruled and not permitted their worship in their temple and attempted to throw off Roman rule. They met with mostly failure and greater oppressions but eventually they succeeded in repelling the Romans for a short period, a period just long enough for the Romans to gather four legions returning with vengeance and a lust for complete subjugation which they were unable to fulfill as these obstinate people who refused Roman rule at Masada who after constructing a ramp were denied their victory as rather than face life as Roman slaves the Judean chose suicide (pictured below including the Roman ramp and base camp); still there were no Arabs. So, when did the first Arabs arrive in these lands you ask? Well, it was not until half a millennia, over five hundred years after the Romans took Masada, a full five hundred years after the Romans destroyed the Second Temple and carried the treasures of the Temple off to Rome, to Rome where Titus’s Arch, complete with stone relief of the Temple treasures being carried off, was erected to Honor Titus and the Roman accomplishment (picture of arch relief below). As there are historic records from the Jewish Bible, Babylonian writings, Persian writings, Greek historic poems and records, Roman records and all of these conquerors found no Arabs inhabiting these lands but they did find and record the presence of the Hebrews or Jews depending on the stage in history where these lands fell from Israelite rule.

Masada

titus-arch

Mahmoud Abbas headed off to New York to address the United Nations General Assembly where he is guaranteed a warm and welcoming reception from the majority of the almost two-hundred nations’ representatives and their visiting dignitaries who have come to join in the festivities. This is guaranteed as there are twenty plus Arab nations represented, another dozen Muslim majority nations, the Nonaligned Member Nations (NAM) which includes many of the Arab and Muslim nations with an additional eighty to hundred additional nations and observer nations (one of which is one of the five permanent nations with a veto in the Security Council, China) which guarantees Mahmoud Abbas will be cheered and applauded by minimally one-hundred-thirty-seven nations who will willingly give their support to any scheme or plan he presents giving Israel, a member state of the United Nations, no regard or concern even to the point of demanding Israel cease to exist as it now stands if that were to ever be set to a vote. Perhaps this is part of the reason the General Assembly is only empowered to make suggestions which need the approval of all nations involved or affected in any manner and if only one nation refuses the action of the General Assembly, even the most reviled before the majority in the General Assembly, then the suggestion is invalidated and made void. The most applicable example might be the General Assembly Resolution 181 carried by a vote on November 29, 1947, which called for the establishment of both a Jewish and an Arab state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea which was actually accepted by the Zionist Jews but refused by the Arab League as they planned an assault to destroy Israel immediately after its founding. Had the Arabs accepted this provision there would have been a Palestinian Arab state formed in 1948 but they decided to turn to war and take all the land and would have except their military assault failed. They have been attempting to erase the little Jewish state of Israel ever since and their machinations continue to this day and will be presented to the United Nations by Mahmoud Abbas in his address to the General Assembly.

Mahmoud Abbas made a brief stop in Paris, France on his way to New York to meet with French President François Hollande to implore him to support the secretive new plan to force a favorable resolution from the Security Council against Israel. President François Hollande gave his hearty support guaranteeing Abbas that he would do all in his power to pass his latest and greatest plan to force Israel to comply. This super-secret plan has one small flaw, Abbas has made this same demand every year for quite some time and this year’s secret addition, he has a new wrinkle every year otherwise his droning on with his litany of complaints and accusations of Israeli crimes would become tedious. This year Mahmoud Abbas is going to demand that the Security Council pass an enforceable Chapter Seven Resolution which will demand that Israel vacate all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem within three years or else, which includes all of the Old City and the Temple Mount which will deny the Israelis from having access to dozens of the holiest sites in Judaism. The first question many might ask is or else what. The answer is that as a Chapter Seven Resolution if Israel fails to fully retreat from all of the contested areas of which under international law Israel has a greater claim to all of the lands than does any other nation and especially the deceptive and fictional Palestinians, the invention of an Egyptian terrorist with delusions of destroying Israel, murdering the Jews residing there and taking their lands, homes and treasures and expecting the complicity of the entire world. Abbas has assumed the leadership after Arafat’s demise and has not missed an opportunity to refuse any and every compromise knowing that anything short of the complete eradication of Israel would be accepted by the terror state he has been elected once to lead. There have been elections scheduled at least twice since Abbas presumably won after his supporting staff counted the ballots and he has cancelled all of them but still claims he was duly elected. The probable result will be a General Assembly Resolution which will give Abbas the ability to claim that the Israelis must surrender and grant him his maximalist demands because he got the support of the mob of the dictatorial nations and human rights violators all who join Abbas in his hatred of Israel and the Jews attempting to force the world to grant his desires ignoring international law and the agreements, including the Oslo Accords, to which he is a signatory.

The fear is that by some misadventure of fate the Security Council Resolution to force Israel to surrender absolutely and completely before the wildest demands because there was no veto placed by any of the five permanent nations, China, Britain, Russia, France and the United States. Abbas has already received assurances from France that they are behind him completely which may explain why Jews are fleeing before rampant anti-Semitism which has exploded beyond reason across all of France. Abbas knows he has the support of both Russia and China which leaves Britain and the United States. There are some who might question whether United States President Obama might instruct United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power to abstain or actually vote in favor or there is a possibility that the woman, Samantha Power, who once stated in an interview that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could require a sizeable United States military intervention to enforce the formation of a Palestinian state and defend it from Israel with the decision of borders by executive decision from the White House forcing whatever that decision would be. The excerpt from that interview is below.

Would President Obama instruct Ambassador Power to not veto Abbas’s proposition and allow it to pass as Chapter Seven and then offer United States military personnel to enforce this edict? Would Ambassador Power completely on her own volition decide that the time has come to force a solution and that this is the perfect opportunity to deliver on her theory and how could anybody blame her for taking this opportunity to fairly and resolutely as such an opportunity to enact her theory and apply the R2P (right to protect) to protect and save the Palestinian from the potential genocide that Ms. Power has previously claimed they may face at some point because of Israeli aggressions despite the fact that Israel has only ever used military force in response to attacks upon Israelis. That would leave Britain which in the past has either abstained or vetoed such previous attempts. There has never been an actual resolution voted on by the Security Council as Abbas has either backed away from taking his demands before the Security Council fearing a veto from one of the five permanent members which would be a setback which could poison the well, so to speak. The British Ambassador would need to check with London and then it would depend on British Prime Minister David Cameron. The fact that Prime Minister Cameron is instructing one of the five permanent member’s vote in the Security Council at a time when the United States dependability to protect Israel from the animosities emerging from Turtle Bay are in question may prove to be a deliverance of fate or from a higher source. The potential for high drama starts today or whenever Abbas takes to the podium before the General Assembly and the wait to see if he will actually take to the Security Council arm in arm with François Hollande or the unfortunate French Ambassador to the United Nations who may be assigned to gather the rewards of befriending Abbas and encouraging his perfidy.

Israel Pleas for the World to Assist Gazan People

Israeli Human Rights Groups and Lawyers have requested for the world to assist in making Gazans safe from the arbitrary executions at the hands of their Hamas overlords. Since Hamas breaking of the last cease fire, the enforcers of Hamas have begun a reign of terror executing over twenty Gazan citizens in efforts to punish the general Gaza population for their having the audacity to actually speak harshly and critically of their Hamas betters. These executions have mostly been carried out summarily without any semblance of a trial or even a shred of justice. Hamas enforcers have also carried out these executions in the public square and others outside Mosques as worshippers were leaving after evening prayers guaranteeing they would have the most direct and effective influence to cower the Gazan people and to serve as a warning against speaking their minds if their thoughts might not be appreciated by the men with all the guns. These executions have all the markings of a purge intended to suppress freedom of thought and reinforcing that the terrorists are their masters and their betters who demand respect and obedience. These murders are further proof that Gaza is a vassal state with the reigning elite being the terror masters of Hamas and Islamic Jihad who hold an iron grip over the population and is holding them hostage to serve their needs, especially as human shields and to provide sufficient cannon fodder who are sent into the jaws of the conflict in order to provide for the necessary civilian fatalities for the terrorist propaganda war against Israel.

 

The silence from the Europeans, United States, United Nations and the rest of the world which has exhibited a great willingness to sound the alarms and ring the bells which claim Israeli misdeeds and the suffering of the Gazan people resulting from the Israeli attacks has been absolutely deafening. Why then is there no equal condemnation and calls to actions to save these same Gazan people when their executioners are Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other terrorists who rule by force in Gaza. Is the reality that Israel is condemned because Israel does not plan terrorist attacks to punish those who denounce her while Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their brothers in the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS will extend their terrorist activities to inflict punishment on those who have the nerve and audacity to call out the terrorist evils. Is it that reporters in Gaza face such intimidation and threats that many refuse to speak of their experiences and the terror threats simply out of fear that they may meet the same ends as Daniel Pearle and recently James Foley while Israel protects the freedom of the press sometimes appearing to apply such protection even more stringently to those in the media who are most critical as if to prove exactly how precious that freedom of the press stands in Israel. Where are those intrepid reporters who decry every innocent Gazan who dies while serving the terrorists as a shield and a potential innocent victim of the war to be paraded before the media repeatedly when those same innocent Gazans are being slaughtered under the false pretext that they assisted the Israelis against Hamas and Islamic Jihad? If these executed Gazans were even remotely guilty of anything, it was likely heeding an Israeli warning and vacated an area about to be attacked in contradiction to the Hamas or Islamic Jihad insistence that they and their families remain in the targeted area to serve as shields or potentially victims despite having been given ample warnings to move to safety. Perhaps the father remained but allowed his wife and children to move to safety and on top of that insult to the authority of the terrorists he also had the audacity to manage not to be killed as they hoped so of course his life must be used as an object lesson to keep the rest of the Gazan people properly fearful of their terrorist overlords and their capricious autocratic rule. Israel has sounded the alarm of another instance of senseless slaughter of the Gazan population, this time by their own government and its enforcers and disciplinarian inquisitors. Israel has challenged the United States directly sending a complaint through their Ambassador, Dan Shapiro.

 

Even the left-wing NGO B’Tselem issued a complaint over Hamas summary murder of the twenty plus Gazan victims without their receiving a trial. The Legal Forum of Israel has written a letter which they delivered to Ambassador Shapiro stating, “While we understand that these incidents are not dependent on the United States, the United States influence over members of Hamas, directly and indirectly, can be significant. We request that your government act to put an end to the wave of executions in Gaza. These are cases of arbitrary killings, incomprehensible attacks on human dignity and a terrible violation of human and civil rights. It is now clear that the residents of Gaza are living under a terrorist regime, and the world is not lifting a finger to stop the atrocities. I hope that your government, which acts for human rights and freedom, will see it fit to intervene on behalf of the innocent residents who are paying the price of living under this murderous terrorist regime.” The ball is in the court of the United States and the world, the same world which has been quick to decry any perceived suspicion of Israeli misdeeds. Now we will witness if their indignation extends to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror rulers of Gaza.

Until recently virtually all cellphones had an Orange SIM card as that was the service operating in Gaza until the Israelis left Gaza in August of 2005 and many Gazans have simply kept their phones.
