Israeli Abuse of Power in a Purely Political Detention

 

Meir Ettinger is a political prisoner of the State of Israel. Much of his administrative detention has been spent in either actual or near solitary confinement. It has been solely through Meir Ettinger’s faith in Hashem and strong will that has prevented his going stir crazy from his ordeal. What, pray tell, is Meir Ettinger’s crime? No crime has been attributed to him and he has already been completely cleared from having any part in the Duma case which is another kettle of fish that smells about six weeks old. Meir Ettinger has not been charged with any crime yet he has undergone extensive and abusive interrogations. The presumed threat he poses is that he desires that the Israeli government be a Biblical government with a King, not him as King, and the rebuilding of the Temple and the reestablishment of the tribal lands and priesthood. I can hear some now wondering what might be wrong with dreams and we would say exactly except Meir Ettinger is the grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane and that makes his visions dangerous. That is the position of the government who feel that this young man’s dreams for his nation to return to its biblical root automatically, because of his bloodline, a threat to their power and offices. Should I hold such desires, one must wonder if I too would find myself locked away from the world in administrative detention indefinitely.

 

Recently the detention of Meir Ettinger was requesting a reprieve long enough to go and attend the Brit Milah for his newborn son after spending the majority of his wife’s pregnancy in confinement unable to be with her through the miracles of life nor was he permitted to be present at his son’s birth. The Brit Milah is a very important moment in a newborn male’s life as this is his accepting of the covenant with Hashem as was the promise made with Abraham. But the secular Supreme Court which remains appointed by a small cabal of leftist jurists year after year as the manner for the selection of judges by the Judicial Selection Committee which consists of Justice Minister who is the Chairman; Cabinet Minister, chosen by the Cabinet; Two Knesset Members, chosen by the Knesset, since 1992 they usually appoint one member from the coalition and one from the opposition; two members of the Bar Association, usually selected by the two largest factions in the bureau; the Chief Justice, and two other judges of the Supreme Court who are replaced every three years by the panel of judges, the selection is usually by seniority. As these organization and at least one Knesset Minister and likely two if not all three members of the court which in most instances places often six but almost always five liberal to extreme leftists appointing new justices. In rare occasions a judge is chosen and they are then found to have been a closet conservative who believes in strict application of the law and not administrating laws from the court, a common practice of late along with choosing to nullify laws without any challenger calling for a review which was presumably beyond the courts power, but power is what you can get away with more often than what is written. This liberal body of Judges decided that Meir Ettinger and his thoughts are so dangerous that there could not be sufficient security set up so as to assure he would not taint the minds of anybody attending the Brit Milah. They did rule with great generosity to allow the Brit Milah to be held inside the prison and allowing a maximum of fifteen guests, at least there would be a minion if two thirds of the guests were male, with each guest meeting requirements and after they passed a deep background check, which takes a month so therefore no guests and potentially the child might be determined to be a risk being the great-grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane, already decidedly a genetically tainted family whose mere bloodline is a threat to the establishment.

The complete idiocy and spitefulness against the family of Rabbi Meir Kahane who was assassinated by a Palestinian gunman in New York City and one son and his wife murdered (pictured above with Rabbi Meir Kahane on the right at their wedding) in an ambush as they were returning home by a number of shooters lying in wait. The perpetrators were never brought to justice for the murder of an innocent couple. This administrative detention is purely out of spite and fear of a family which does not necessarily believe that all is perfect with the government. They and others believe that things should be different, but have never shown any signs of following any path for change other than through the existing system. These individuals include Meir Ettinger and friends and the many followers of the teachings of Rabbi Meir Kahane and are opposed to the current ways in Israel using methods which consist of pure hate and spite and are very unbecoming. Such a detention for thoughts should have every last Israeli up in arms against this atrocity as if it be Meir Ettinger today it could just as easily be any of us tomorrow. This act of malice needs condemnation by anybody with a heart that knows the pride and wonder of having a new child and the joys of those first months and the special moments, a Brit Milah, the naming, their first blessings and a myriad of other events which from all appearances Meir Ettinger will be denied because he dares to dream of change and of an Israel which is ruled by Torah and not men.

Israeli Leadership Requires an Upgrade

 

Reading the Bible, Old Testament and particularly the Torah, it does not take long before one asks themselves where are the fighters for Eretz Yisroel as are told about in both the Torah and Bible. Just a quick list we find Abraham who likely was the first man to use special forces tactics and a nighttime attack somewhere between midnight and two in the morning to free Lot and his family from the slavers who had taken them captive. Where are those like Jacob who fought an Angel pretty much to a standstill or some might say overpowered the angel while receiving only one serious injury to himself. Then there is Moses who fought the Midianites, the Amalekites, brought forth water from a rock as a miracle from Hashem, taught the Torah to the Israelites and assisted the building of the Mishkan. Then there was Joshua, Deborah, Samson, King Saul, David and Solomon as well as many other heroes. Then there were the wise and fearless all of whom showed their courage, convictions and faith in Hashem and only then were they found worthy of Hashem’s miracles. Even the parting of the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds for you modern revisionists) would never had happened had not Nachshon, from the tribe of Judah, not only jumped into the sea but walked out until he was up to his nostrils and about to take a deep breath before the sea parted. This is one of the main truths from the Bible which today is summed up by the proverb; Hashem helps those who help themselves. We must take the first step and in some instances we take those steps and Hashem foils our efforts simply so that Hashem can display that it is Hashem who saves us and assists all that we do and all of it is in service of Hashem. This was proven during the last Gaza War when a rocket was tracked by an Iron Dome unit, those anti-missile and artillery intercepting batteries which shoot interceptor ultra-high speed missiles which strike and neutralize incoming rockets, missiles, mortars, artillery and anything else launched at Israel short range with over a 90% kill rate, which indicated it would strike central Tel Aviv business district in the area of the central train and bus stations where the high rise building are located thus a threat to tens of thousands should it strike. The actual words of the commanding officer of the Iron Dome officer after they had fired three times and missed the incoming rocket all three times, nearly impossible, he saw that, “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.” We reported more on this miracle here. This battery proved they would act as they tried and tried and tried and in the end it was Hashem who saved Tel Aviv from an awful fate. Another thing I can tell you as one who fired anti-tank missiles for Uncle Sam, wind has a very marginal effect on a rocket or missile’s trajectory and a wind capable of redirecting a rocket to turn and a land mile off to the west from a northward trajectory would have really upset anything not nailed down in Tel Aviv including such minor things as busses and anything short of a locomotive and that would be debatable.

So, where are we leading with all of these little stories and examples? We look at the Israeli leadership and they are always so fretting the reactions of the European Union, European governments, the United States Congress, the American President, the United Nations, Russia, Kathmandu, well maybe not Kathmandu as Israel is loved in Nepal after the aid hospital and search and rescue teams we sent to aid them after that horrific shaking that rumbled through that Himalayan country destroying the capital and many of the villages throughout the nation and Israel sent medical assistance even to small villages halfway up some rather impressively tall slopes. It is somewhat understandable that Israel does what it can to remain on good ground with the United States as they are a major, actually sole, provider of fighters and helicopters. This was at the time deemed a good idea when the United States offered to provide both F-15 and F-16 fighters if Israel would stop their design and production of the Lavi fighter Jet. The Lavi would have been a direct competitor with the F-16 and the United States probably figured they would rather have one less competitor in the fighter jet department so they offered Israel a really good deal and also promised they would make sure Israel maintained air superiority in the Middle East. Well, with F-15 JSF being sold to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and potentially Turkey and who knows who else such as, Heaven forbid, Iran; Israeli air superiority apparently is not going to be so guaranteed down the road in five or six years when these Arab nations have the same exact aircraft and more of them in each nation such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Still the Israeli leadership bends over backwards to please the United States and even please President Obama with the sole example of leadership coming when Prime Minister Netanyahu and every other Israeli political leader, even those from the opposition playing the loyal opposition which is something rare these days, with the opposition to the heinous Iran Nuclear Deal which will give Iran a path to nuclear weapons in at most twelve years and more likely eight years assuming they are not currently producing their second run of them using an even improved thermonuclear design given them by North Korea. Otherwise Israeli leadership bows and scrapes before virtually every other nation which demands Israel limit building homes for Jews in Jerusalem or Hevron or Bet El while also demanding that Israel both allow many Europeans to build residences for Palestinian Arabs in Areas which were forbidden them under the Oslo Accords but apparently the only nation bothering to obey treaty limitation is Israel and they are going even further and obeying limitation which supercede any treaty. Such fearfulness and timidity has not served Israel well as all it has done is encourage Europeans and the United States to demand more concessions and more concessions and even more where Israel simply bows and scrapes and almost mindlessly obeys as if such was in Israel’s best interests.

 

The question which must be asked and resolved by Israeli leaders is where has polite concession after concession gotten Israel. The answer is they have become a doormat which everybody steps on their way to ask almost reverently of Mahmoud Abbas what he would like Israel to gift him for the privilege of having him meet with them, shake hands with whatever Prime Minister Israel has elected and then spit in Israel’s face and walk away pocketing the concessions the European or American forced from Israel on their way home stepping once more on the doormat. This has cost Israel any respect they had ever gained through the years and watching the spineless actions whittle away any respect Israel might have had has been disheartening. Remembering the valor and will-do, which is one step more audacious than simply can-do, which was exhibited in such bold and daring missions such as the raid on Entebbe Airport to free hijack hostages and the stern pride exhibited by Prime Minister Menachem Begin whose resolve and respect he earned assisted in the making of a peace with Egypt. Then there were the great deeds which were actually committed by the likes of Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ya’alon back during their time in the IDF where they had committed deeds of a nature similar to that committed by the young soldier now being politically sacrificed before the court of political correctness and seemingly in anticipation of European and United Nations simply going “Tisk, tisk, you had better punish that man for killing the enemy who had already stabbed one soldier.” Israel is in a war and in wars you actually shoot your enemies with intent to kill them; but not Israel as we shoot them with rubber bullets or if we use real bullets we are to shoot their legs. Shooting terrorists in their legs already did not incapacitate one determined terrorist who after being shot in both legs, one of them twice, still managed to sink his hatchet into another victim which finally convinced the people with the guns to shoot him somewhere more vital and then he stopped swinging his hatchet at people and will never again commit such a heinous assault. That is the only way you prevent your enemy from ever killing your soldiers, and with these terrorist that includes your civilians who apparently are legitimate targets for the terrorists despite the terrorists being treated like an endangered species and their lives treated as more important. The Rules of Engagement (ROE) are upside down as when you have an enemy who is sworn to murder every last person in your country, and in the case of Hamas and Islamic Jihad they want to kill every Jew everywhere, you do not allow them to live for another day and try again. And as the same government who demands that the terrorists not be killed but disarmed and taken alive as that is the humane thing to do, war is not humane, and then trades over a thousand of these terrorists taken humanely in order to retrieve one single soldier, then it is better to not be quite so humane. There are those out there who will claim that I am a monster for even suggesting the killing of these poor unfortunate terrorists who are only acting against the occupation. There is no occupation unless you count the Arabs who are squatting on lands promised to the Zionist Congress as sacrosanct and guaranteed by the crown of England and by the League of Nations and theoretically also the United Nations according to Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The leaders of the European nations, the members of the United Nations, the Americans and anybody else capable of reading knows already that Israel was defined as we stated in the article yesterday, Israel is all of Israel as defined by the San Remo Conference and other inclusive documents from the end of World War I. Not only the Middle Eastern and North African maps were completely redrawn but so was the map of Eastern Europe. It was not restricted to the Arab World as claimed by so many, and that marked pretty much the beginning of European colonial enterprises in the area which had been colonized by the Arab Muslims and their converted allies for over a thousand years before the Europeans ever arrived. The colonialism label is simply a guilt trip being laid on the European and the Western world in general.

 

Another item that the spineless leaders have allowed by not standing up against the false charges has been the claim that Israel is a colonizing power. Israel was formed from part of the British Mandate from which both Iraq and Jordan were also formed. If Israel is a colonizing power then so is Jordan and Iraq as all were made from the same British Mandate and then Syria and Lebanon also would be colonial powers as they were formed from the French Mandate. Israel is an indigenous peoples who have returned to their ancestral lands and were residing in the lands south of the Litany River through the Negev Desert and on both sides of the Jordan River and Sea of Galilee since approximately 1200 BCE with a continuous Jewish presence in areas of the land and definitely in Jerusalem with many centuries having a Jewish majority population in Jerusalem while Jerusalem was never the capital of any Arab or Muslim nation. The Israeli leadership should be as proud of their country returning to its homeland and making the deserts bloom, draining swamp lands and making them furtive and building a modern nation while under constant threat of war in the face of terrorism and seemingly ignoring all adversity to thrive. Israel because of her people was rated the eleventh happiest nation in which to live placing it ahead of the United States and obviously virtually all if not all of the Arab and Muslim worlds. Now we need to have leaders equally as happy to lead with the same esprit de corps that is so apparent in the people. Yes, Israel has its problems but the most threatening and dangerous of these challenges needs to be met with vigor and nerve and dare we say, chutzpah, and simply declare what we know to be true and our lands as originally defined; and if there are those who object, well, sucks to be them.

Radically Changing Power Structures in the Middle East

 

First allow us to note the passing of a great Constitutional scholar and jurist, Antonin Scalia, who was seventy-nine and had served for twenty-nine years on the Supreme Court. There will be a ton of second guessing on whom exactly President Obama will pick to replace the conservative, Constitutional scholar but the one thing we would like to put forth is they will mostly be wrong. President Obama’s previous choices of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan surprised almost all in his previous Supreme Court appointments. Our guess is of a more general nature as we believe his choice will be an academic who shares the leftist view of a living and ever mutating Constitution in which all forms of new and existing rights can be found to be implied if only the founders had the wisdom of the leftists of today. Whoever President Obama chooses will have the effect of changing the nature and status of the Supreme Court likely for a long while into the future. President Obama has had the rare opportunity to leave an indelible mark on the Supreme Court as he has had the opportunity of appointing one third of the current members sitting on the Supreme Court. This will be the true legacy next to Obamacare and the initiating the accepting of tens if not hundreds of thousands of Syrian and other Middle Eastern “refugees” and potentially resulting in millions by the time the entire story becomes known. One can hope to be pleasantly surprised that the President’s appointment turns out to be more of a purist when interpreting the Constitution as being appointed to the Supreme Court has shown some strange and unexpected results as people take the honor to heart and have the importance of the position lay heavily on their minds and their direction of thoughts on the exact definition of protect and defend the Constitution will inevitably mean to them. We can only hope for a discerning and wise person who weighs all the ramification of their decisions.

Everyone has, including us to some extent, expressed their feelings on the path to nuclear weapons power that Iran received in the Iran Nuclear Agreement 7/14/2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and the inevitable ways it will change the entire makeup and distribution of power across the Middle East and many, again including us, have attempted to predict what the wholesale introduction of nuclear weaponry across the Middle East and potentially slowly seeping across Norther Africa and whether it will make Nuclear Armageddon more likely or usher in an understanding of the new and ruinous implications of starting a war might cause to bring as the outcome. Of course if anyone was looking to bring the greatest possible turmoil, chaos, death and destruction on the world as a whole and not care about the consequences because that turmoil, chaos, death and destruction actually was their only goal, then the nuclearization of the Middle East and beyond is exactly what the doctor ordered. A nuclear armed apocalyptic maniac is the exact formula to a future which could act to set human development back ten centuries or potentially lead to the next round of massive mutations across all surviving life forms eventually leading to the next apex predator to rise to the top of the food chain and with any luck also me closer to human development than the simple brute power of T-rex had attained before they and their species being brought down by an assumed impact wiping clean the slate of development leading to mankind’s rise to eventual dominance.

 

There have been other changes which are probably not as dire or noticeable as yet on how these developments will play out. The biggest has been the introduction of highly effective antiaircraft missile batteries at both ends of the Middle East with Iran to soon have delivery of the Russian S-300 antiaircraft batteries to Iran and the recent deployment by the Russian forces defending their port and the Alawites in the area including Bashir al-Assad of the S-400 antiaircraft batteries. These systems render an air assault or targeting within their range far riskier and problematic. Further, with Russians manning the S-400 antiaircraft batteries in Syria, they are far less likely to be shut-down as was the entirety of the Syrian air defense network by the Israelis when they bombed the nuclear development complex facility in September 6, 2007. These changes in the balance of power brought by these changes are going to be difficult to discern as the variables are significant. One also has to add two other important notes to this volatile mix of conditions, one from the Middle East and the other affecting the Middle East.

The first is the affect that North Korea may play onto the Middle East puzzle as well as the future of the United States. As we and numerous others have pointed out is the fact that both Iran and North Korea have practiced and actually placed satellites into low earth orbits which have polar orbits rather than an equatorial orbit which makes them pass over the United States mainland alternately from the direct north and from the direct south. The northern approach is not that important as it would pass over the teeth of the United States NORAD and other defensive systems placed to intercept any Russian attack during the cold war and thus would be facing formidable defensive structures. The interesting passes are the one approaching from the south, particularly those passing over Mexico or the Gulf of Mexico and crossing over the United States anywhere from New Mexico to Arizona where the entirety of the United States monitoring systems have one of the largest blind-spots and thus vulnerability. Both Iran and North Korea have practiced what is understood by military strategists to be the perfect height and orbit for delivering an EMP, or Super EMP which is the latest craze, device to explode near the center of the United States and southern Canada taking out the entirety of the North American power grid. The resultant damages to the transformers and other high voltage system hardware as well as destroying virtually all of the software run control systems would result in as high as ninety-five percent civilian deaths in the first decade with the largest loss being at the front end two years having the greatest impact.

 

Such an assault could effectively take out almost all of the ground based systems the United States would be reliant on for its defense from invasion or to retaliate against their attacker. This would not mean the perpetrators of such an assault would be free and clear of retribution raining down on their heads as the United States has a large enough contingent of its forces located around the globe that United States power projection would remain credible. The large nuclear missile carrying submarines, often called Boomers (hey, we do not make up these names, honest) would still carry in their tubes sufficient nuclear strike capabilities of destroying virtually the entirety of human existence globally and definitely could remove the populations of North Korea and Iran without losing their critical and definitive threat against any others planning in taking advantage of the problems back home caused by such an attack. Where this would bring little solace to the Americans facing brutish conditions as their entire food and other supply networks would have been destroyed in such an attack, this deterrent power of the United States nuclear powered Navy that eventually the United States would return onto the world stage meaner and leaner but even more determined to take vengeance unto which the world has never known. The last part in this section of the puzzle is that Iran and North Korea have had a high level of cooperation in nuclear development and rocket/missile technology. Keeping such in mind, the recent test carried out by North Korea of a hydrogen powered nuclear device now believed to be, here comes the new buzzword, Super EMP device capable of on detonation generating a series of EMP Gama-radiation waves which could destroy if detonated over Kansas City or St Louis or anywhere between which would be sufficiently potent to effect sensitive electronics in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D. C., Norfolk Naval Base, Andrews Airforce Base, the Pentagon (except for its shielded emergency generators), Richmond on down to Atlanta, Georgia. That would include the East and West Coasts leaving potentially the Coronado Naval Base and Marine Base intact and slight possibility of not destroying the Bremerton shipyards. Still, such a wide ranging area of destruction of electronic devices would be devastating and would be felt world-wide as there would be other ramifications such as GPS satellites not receiving update information largely controlled by the United States and a loss of large sectors of the Internet, phone networks and any other functions which pass through the United States communications hubs which carry the largest volume of the entire world’s communications. This would have far reaching effects many of which are irreplaceable and even unpredicted. The best case scenario, and only best case scenario, is that such an attack never occurs; but with a child-like egotistical and maniacal megalomaniac in charge in North Korea who believes himself one of the most powerful people ruling a giant amongst nations who murders any general or even family member who attempts to implant even the slightest glimmer of reality into the equation being executed on the spot, who knows? Just think about the day, which might be today or tomorrow, when Kim Jung-un decides it is time to teach the United States a lesson. Just ponder that for a moment and then try to return to your normally scheduled day as such would never happen, would it? Adding the Iranian fanatical and suicidal Mullahs in Iran and have fun sleeping tonight, they do not really mean it when they claim to desire bringing chaos, turmoil, misery and a general state of conflagration worldwide just so their messiah the Twelfth Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, who will emerge from his hiding place down a well in Qom where he has been hiding since before the year 1000 AD. You cannot make this stuff up. So there is that threat and they share technology and many believe the tested nuclear Super EMP device tested by North Korea recently was actually an Iranian design and was carried out by North Korea for the Iranians so they would not break their treaty quite yet.

The other side of the coin is Israel. The Israelis have not been taking all these developments as fait accompli but instead have been working, one could say feverishly, on their layered missile and aircraft defense systems. The world was given a demonstration of the effectiveness of the Iron Dome on locally launched missiles, mortars and rockets during the last Gaza war. Since then there have been further upgrades made possible by the data acquired during that conflict. Many of the upgrades were software but the other was a new interceptor which would improve the accuracy and lethality of the system, a system which already proved to be over ninety percent accurate in its initial deployment during the last Gaza Hamas war. Israel also has a multi-layered system of interceptor which would make interception possible on an ICBM or Continental Ballistic Missile such as what Iran would need to use if launching from within their borders. Should they launch from Syria or Lebanon then the intercept would be performed by a faster reacting system such as the Iron Dome or other slightly more encompassing system. The kind of layered system which will be required to keep Israel and the Israeli population safe from any device with the emphasis on early detection and removal of threats on their ascendant prefecture over the downward flight as it is most often on the approach to target after apogee that missile systems deploy avoidance technologies. While the Israeli nuclear capability has been pondered and guessed at, it is still not 100% proven if such systems exist or where and how they would be stored and/or deployed, what delivery systems exist and whether these systems kept in hardened bunkers atop ICBM and Continental Ballistic Missiles or if they exist, are they simply bombs requiring aircraft to fly the mission to deliver these weapons which may not even exist. As we covered recently on February 13, 2016 in our article What Israel Must Learn from President Obama concerning, amongst other items of importance, the F-35 JSF and its serious limitations and no freedom of action when using these fifth generation fighters that they make second guessing any nation relying on these systems to come under United States control potentially at the most critical of moments. Further, the fact that an EMP device would necessarily affect the very support systems which would allow the F-35 JSF to deploy would be destroyed or isolated such that they could not release the aircraft when most needed, the F-35 JSF would become just so much advanced electronics and composites composited dead on the runway. There are a number of other links to other articles both ours and outside corroborative articles all worth a quick read as they lay out much of the thought patterns since even before 2010 when we first finally got around to addressing the next generation of aircraft which are going to become a necessity for air defense at close range and possibly further missions run from a control aircraft. Perhaps another article is due on such future systems; we will try to look into such but no absolute promises on when.

As is noticeable the world is changing, the sides are lining up and one errant move could force ramifications too dire to face but face them we must; otherwise, they could occur and have no mitigating systems in place to avoid hostilities falling into place where one act creates another leading to a more vigorous act which forces a full deployment and the next thing you know the Grand Duchess Gloriana XII of the Duchy of Grand Fenwick will order Prime Minister Count Rupert of Mountjoy to deploy their finest archers to voyage across the seas and attack to defend the honor of the wines of the Duchy of Grand Fenwick from a California cheap imitation. The troops under Field Marshal Tully Bascombe, a recent promotion of sorts, assault the United States and , well, you will need to rent the movie “The Mouse that Roared” and enjoy Peter Sellers at his hysterical best, well, next to the Pink Panther. Unfortunately the world today is almost as insane as the Mouse that Roared but all too dangerous to really joke about, but we must keep a balance and our sanity so some light hearted entertainment might mitigate the sense of dread, well, for around an hour and a half. Think we will make some buttered popcorn and watch a movie, later.
