Now it is weeks, though it seems like years, since the government was dissolved and it is March 16, 2015, the day before elections. When these elections were called by then Prime Minister Netanyahu and the right wing Likud and Jewish Home voting with the opposition to dissolve the Knesset, the going media commentary reported the coming floodgates being opened and the guarantee that Likud and a coalition of purely right wing parties would win well over the necessary sixty-one mandates and not need to include what had proved to be the troublesome egoistic parties of Tzipi Livni’s Hatnua (The Party) or Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid (There is a Future) in the coalition. This was presumed to permit the formed right wing, nationalist and Zionist coalition free of the attempts to form a coalition cutting out Likud, Jewish Home and including Labor and other parties finding a coalition to assume power without any elections, an unprecedented virtual coup by Lapid and possibly Livni. The tenor of the campaigns has revealed the designs on power and the Prime Minister’s seat by Livni and Lapid have been thoroughly revealed beyond any doubt. Tzipi Livni forged a coalition with Labor in order to guarantee her Hatnua Party inclusion in the next government despite it polling beneath threshold and has even finagled to share the Prime Ministership with Yitzhak Hertzog despite not having the backing from the public warranting her attaining such an importance while Lapid made some commentary that should he garner the support he dreams his Yesh Atid Party will garner then he had already figured how he could form a coalition as well placing him in the Prime Minister’s chair. The biggest change since the new elections were called has been the media’s slanted coverage and misrepresenting positions and using questionable polling have potentially drawn the results of the election into question and currently the leftist media have placed the Labor Hatnua misnamed “Zionist Camp” as having a comfortable lead and claiming that Likud and Netanyahu are sinking and soon to be thrown from power. The truth be told, the future of Israel will rest on the next government coalition’s ability to hold the line and resist the growing pressures and demands from United States President Obama and his administration’s attempts to require Israel to return to the pre-Six Day War lines leaving half of Jerusalem and all of Gaza, Judea and Samaria presumably under the rule of the unity Fatah-Hamas-Islamic Jihad governance. Such would place virtually all Jewish holy sites beyond Israeli borders and thus not only beyond the reach of any Jew to visit but also likely to be just as destroyed and razed as if these holy sites were surrendered to ISIS. But the real question is what exactly are the Israeli elections being held tomorrow actually addressing beyond who becomes Prime Minister and who would make the best Prime Minister from those who actually might have sufficient mandates to form a coalition, Tzipi Livni/Yitzhak Hertzog power sharing of two years each, Benyamin Netanyahu, Yair Lapid, the leaders of what is referred to as the Arab Block or Naftali Bennett?

 

Before anything can be considered, we need to define the greatest challenge which the new incoming Prime Minister will face once a coalition has been formed. Oddly enough the greatest challenges the next Prime Minister will face will not come out of Europe, from the Unity Government of Fatah/Hamas/Islamic Jihad, from the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement, nor from the United Nations. The challenge will come from what many, including many who desire to be the next Prime Minister, believe to be the closest of Israeli allies, the United States. The good news is that the threat coming from the United States does not have universal acceptance as the Congress remains strongly allied and friendly and supportive of Israel though a few too many actually still believe in the two state solution and the Oslo Accords, nor does the threat come from the majority of Americans where Israel still received support by over a ratio of two to one and still approaching three to one. The menacing threats against Israel are formidable and very adept at arousing support from thousands who will be available to man the parapets and be bussed all the way across the country when called upon. These forces came out from coast to coast and north to south to protest presumably racist police presumably having targeted and murdered a gentle giant in Ferguson, Missouri and then in another confrontation in New York City and these demonstrations have been sustained for months even despite the murder of two police sitting in their cruiser in New York and the shooting and severely injured two police standing in front of the Ferguson police station monitoring the protest taking place across the street. The grand juries in both cases found the police not to be at fault and to have acted within the guidelines of their departments and not to have committed any criminal acts. So, we have already witnessed the ability of President Obama and the assistance by Attorney General Holder generating protests despite the innocence of the police even after the evidence being combed through with a very fine toothed comb and still not establishing any culpability of the police. The only accusation they were able to uncover was what was referred to as “Disparate Impact” of arrests and traffic stops, a statistical fact which would very probably be true in virtually every police department with more than twelve officers. Read the article on >a href=http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/sowell031015.php3 target=blank>“Disparate Impact” by Thomas Sowell>/a> for some depth and truths as only he is able to explain and so far better than my modest attempts.

 

The ability of the Community Organizer in Chief and his Attorney Instigator along with such supporting advisors such as Samantha Power, Susan Rice, new Middle East National Security Council appointment, Robert Malley, are all known for their antipathy towards Israel and have other fellow travelers with some of them even being Jews who are more close with their progressive politics than they are to supporting Israel will present a formidable assault team just waiting for the new Israeli government before they launch their broadsides. The appointment of new Middle East National Security Council Advisor Robert Malley was the final straw which removed all doubt of where President Obama was intending to head concerning all things Israel. Looking back all the way to 2008 and Senator Obama’s initial run for the Presidency and we find his appointing Robert Malley to his foreign advisory team and then firing him shortly thereafter due to protestations from numerous Jewish organizations. When Robert Malley was appointed subsequently to head the foreign relations with Iraq and Iran President Obama made assurances to numerous progressive but still pro-Israel organizations and groups that Malley would be restrained from and never deal with anything concerning Israel. Now that the Jewish vote cannot affect President Obama as all elections are gone and he is in the home stretch so is free to do as he pleases and no longer care whose toes he treads or even stomps on while he finally can act to take out those he wishes to destroy but was unable before to act too overtly. Israel is at the head of that list and is also partially behind the leniency being shown the Iranian nuclear program as President Obama has been supportive the leader of the Shiite world and plans on crowning Iran as the new hegemonic power in the Middle East supplanting both Egypt and Saudi Arabia as well as allowing Iran to be the nuclear balance against Israel. This is behind his plans to make any agreement with Iran as an executive agreement which will be considered a guideline which will be considered to be advisory and not binding thus not a treaty as much as an understanding such that President Obama will claim he can bypass Senate ratification as this is not a treaty or any other binding agreement covered by the Constitution of the United States. This was the advisory out of Iran in response to Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton’s open letter to Iran’s leaders signed by forty-six Senate Republicans where they basically echoed exactly the points made by President Obama about why the Congress, even the Senate or especially the Senate, will have absolutely no say in what is agreed upon in the P5+1 and Iran talks. President Obama has now not only gone to the extreme in his desire to remove Congress from any actions he desires to take but has dived into the deep end in challenging the Constitutional restraints presumably limiting President Obama in his final two years. This bodes poorly for Israel as no matter whom Israel elects and President Reuven Rivlin chooses to form a coalition and succeeds in doing so.

 

President Obama announced his intentions almost as soon as he took office when he stated that the solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict would be the forming of an Arab State using the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice line, as the border. President Obama then forced a building freeze on Prime Minister Netanyahu which officially lasted for ten months but has unofficially continued ever since with announcements for tenders to build but somehow the required documents or authorizations always manage to get hung-up and the structures never get built. There has been little if any delay in the destruction of Jewish buildings ordered by the Supreme Court though Arab buildings with similar orders seldom have the demolitions carried out. During the war in Gaza against Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which was brought on by the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli youths followed soon thereafter by daily increased rocket and mortar attacks on the Israeli southern towns and kibbutzim closest to Gaza with the range of attacks growing daily as well until they struck Tel Aviv, then began the war as such attacks had to be halted, President Obama decided that a single ground-to-ground rocket which landed approximately half a mile south of Ben Gurion International Airport was sufficient a threat to cancel all flights by United States carriers from entering Israeli airspace thus closing the airport. A number of European nations also forbid their airlines from using Ben Gurion International Airport. These shuttering of Israeli airspace was despite the knowledge that there was an Iron Dome placed south of the airport plus two other Iron Dome units in the proximity guarding Tel Aviv and Jerusalem which made it next to impossible for anything launched from Gaza of threatening any airliners. There was also the additional requirement inserted between the United States and Israeli militaries which under war conditions are by treaty allowed to resupply Israeli needs straight military to military without need of further validation then being required to receive State Department approval which prevented any resupply of Israel during the conflict in Gaza. This was a breach of treaty and an illegal act which President Obama simply ignored the law of the land as treaties take on once ratified. This exhibits that President Obama has no regard for treaties, agreements, requirements of the United States Constitution or the need to include Congress in any action where such is required by that same Constitution and thus is ruling as if he were Emperor Imperialist of the United States and placing himself above the law. These acts by President Obama are setting precedents should he be permitted such and allowed to trample the Constitution and its limitations on Presidential power that will in the future allow for the destruction of the rule of law and replace it with an imperial presidency which will further take the United States into being under the rule of man, a very dangerous place. This is exactly how President Obama plans on acting, with complete contempt for Congress and with impunity when it comes to empowering Iran and destroying Israel in every way possible and simply daring the Congress to stop his actions.

 

President Obama will also make it known to Arab leadership that should they desire to take Israel before the Security Council that the United States is prepared to abstain from and vote and will withhold its veto whenever able and that they may count on such being the default position of the United States for the remainder of his term in office. This leads Israel to a very dangerous place where if those who have made it their campaign promise and predicated their every statement to promising to repair any supposed damage which Prime Minister Netanyahu may have caused between the Israeli government and the administration of President Barack Obama and by working with President Obama in establishing the two state solution by whatever means are required. These statements have been issued by many who are referred to most often as centrists or center left but not any referred to as far right wing or nationalist backers of the settlements causing an impediment of peace. One must wonder as to what those supporting the two state solution plan on doing should Mahmoud Abbas refuse to make peace unless a complete return to the Green Line with no swaps and a total right of return as well, will they grant the whole set of demands when President Obama advises that they accept these terms as it will be worth doing so as it will finally bring peace. There have been a few statements from Yitzhak Hertzog where he parroted the answers given by Benyamin Netanyahu when they appeared to a debate between them just this weekend, but I have doubts that Hertzog would really stick to such a position if President Obama demanded he surrender all of East Jerusalem as well as Judea and Samaria while accepting five or more million refugees from all the refugee camps and probably beyond as any Syrian refugee who might find an opening to claim refugee status not from Syria but from the Palestinian refugee centers which were in Syria before the civil war. Such an opening if permitted could add near countless refugees being foist upon Israel drowning Israel with Arab refugees who would vote Israel out of being a Jewish state at the very next elections. Probably the best Prime Minister Israel might elect would be a brick wall or whoever comes closest to resembling a brick wall when it comes to surrender to the whims and wiles of President Obama. The unfortunate truth is that the President of the United States would allow Israel’s complete and utter destruction as to it being the homeland of the Jews, and as such, a Jewish State. As to who might be such a person, well, that will be left to the Israeli voters tomorrow and the one promise is that, whoever is chosen to form a coalition will be forming the fate of Israel and the Jewish people in their hands, may they be capable hands guided by G0d and may they be girded with the truth, that by International Law and treaty the lands from the west bank of the Jordan River to the beaches on the Mediterranean Sea, every square millimeter of lands belong to Israel and though all other rights are granted to the inhabitants, the Israeli government is empowered to decide who is granted political power and thus may vote in Israeli elections. This was decided by the fifty-two nations unanimously, the entirety of the League of Nations, in 1921 with the ratification of the San Remo Conference which was further validated by the United Nations Charter Article 80 which recognized the Mandates and all other standing treaties and conferences from the League of Nations remained valid and fully applicable and backed by the United Nations as if enacted by that body as well. Perhaps whoever becomes the next Prime Minister of Israel when standing before the United Nations General Assembly next fall, assuming the next government makes it that far, can read to the assembled the contents of the San Remo Conference and remind them of Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and thus put an end to this futile debate which is invalid simply due to International Law which so many claim to desire. Perhaps it is time to give them the truths about International Law and how it may not be the friend they think it be.

I probably should have included the United Nations Security Council in the title as well as that is where this drama will eventually play out. It’s a serious game of ‘who will blink first’ combined with ‘truth or dare’ all rolled up into a larger game of ‘chicken’ over the coming Israeli elections. President Obama really is tired of and hates Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. He despises his nationalistic pride, his belief in right and wrong as delineated by his religion, his fierce defense of his belief and most of all, his refusal to be dictated to and obey every last wise council and direction from President Obama. President Obama does not handle rejection very well, believes he is the most knowledgeable person in all matters and absolutely cannot handle when open defiance also results in proof that President Obama’s demands would have delivered disastrous results plus proving that everything the President held as factual was completely erroneous. What is rapidly pushing things beyond the cusp is the inability of President Obama to handle anybody challenging his authority combined with such denials proving the defiant person having a more grounded view of the realities of the situation proving beyond any doubt that the President’s grasp of the situation was completely wrong. Adding insult to injury, President Obama has chosen to fully back the European argument that the Palestinians are angelic innocents who only desire their rightful and historic homeland restored to them which they lost as a result of Israeli and Jewish aggressions and that all the related violence in the Israeli-Arab conflict would come to an end and peace and joyousness would spread across the globe if only the Israelis would yield to the Arab demands and surrender to the Arab demands. Now the game really comes to a head as the Israeli government has opted for new elections which will make the lack of congenial relations between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu who is seeking to remain in office by having his party, and potentially any other willing and like-minded nationalistic parties, to gain the largest number of seats in the next Knesset (parliament) to return him to the Prime Ministership.

 

The meme that will be used by the leftist parties and their candidates for the Prime Ministership and other spokespeople and candidates for Ministerships is that Prime Minister Netanyahu is risking the destruction of the close relationship between Israel and the United States which could result in some near disastrous ramifications if Netanyahu is not defeated and replaced by somebody more aligned and friendly towards the American President and his views. Never mind that what is driving President Obama in his views and dealings with Israel is an overriding desire to place Israel in such a disadvantaged position as to potentially make their continued existence virtually untenable. Of course should Israel fall in line and follow the desires of the European leaders, the United Nations, the Arab world, President Obama and some of the far leftist in Israel and surrender before all the demands of Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and surrender all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem, which includes all of the Old City and Temple Mount, for the formation of a twenty-third Arab nation, the resulting situation would place Israel in a severely compromised position which is considered by virtually every last military experts and actual commanders, including both Israeli and those of the United States, to be indefensible borders so vulnerable that they have been named the ‘Auschwitz Borders’, a name first given the pre Six Day War (1967 Arab-Israeli War) borders by Israel’s most articulate foreign minister and former United Nations Ambassador Abba Eban.

 

One might think that no Israeli leader seeking to be the Prime Minister would ever permit such a situation to come to be, but then many thought there was no way for President Obama to win reelection. This is one of the problems with any political system which depends on the people voting to choose their leadership, the people can be misled and follow a charismatic leader sown the primrose path to desolation and destruction. I think the labels given this situation by talk radio and other personalities in the United States is the problem of the low information voters versus the right-minded thinking of the high information voters. Unsurprisingly, Israel also has its share of low information voters; or at least those voters who live in their own bubble far enough away from any untoward events destroying their serene view of the universe who believe fervently in the far leftist polemical views and definitions of the situations facing Israel and nothing is capable of shaking their foundational beliefs. These people form the central core of those who believe that Bibi Netanyahu is a spawn of evil and everything he stands for is dangerous and must be opposed at all costs. Add on top of this the tendency of candidates to tailor their speeches and positions to match their audience and then you have the potential for sufficient numbers of voters led into voting with what they will later realize was a false sense of security. The last elections had a perfect example of such a candidate with Yair Lapid claiming that he was a far cry from any and everything his father stood for when he won a large following in his initial foray into politics coming from a news media personality. His father, Tommy Lapid, did not even receive sufficient votes the next election to gain entrance into the Knesset as voters were then voting on his actual record and not his campaign soliloquies. Yair Lapid campaigned on a nationalistic and rightist agenda which would have been a long cry from what his father proved to believe. Lapid talked the talk but after gaining the second most seats in the Knesset did not walk the walk. His true agendas came out and he was not as nationalist as he pretended, was actually a relative leftist and his main belief and aim is to become Prime Minister. What is even more frightening is that he desires to be Prime Minister not because he desires to serve Israel or the people, but because he believes deep down that he knows the true and best path and only he is capable of making Israel acceptable to the rest of the world and make a lasting and complete peace even with Israel’s most ardent of detractors who would only actually be satiated by the destruction of Israel and its people. But Yair Lapid is far from alone in these feelings as there are many others beyond just Tzipi Livni, Naftali Bennett and Isaac Herzog. I am lead to believe that it is part of the desire to lead a political party in Israel to believe that you are the rightful and sole person capable of leading Israel on a true and safe path which will provide the most advantageous leadership possible and definitely more advantageous than what any of the other party leaders would be capable of providing. Guess it kind of goes with the neighborhood.

 

Adding in Jordanian King Abdullah II, the Jordanian King recently had a head-to-head talk with President Obama after which President Obama was quoted by UPI as having stated, “We share concerns about the continuous tensions between Israel and Gaza. We are going to work together for a Palestinian State.” This is interesting in a frightening sort of way as currently Jordan sits in the United Nations Security Council and will assume the Presidency in January and is planning on presenting a proposal seeking a binding resolution under Chapter Seven setting a deadline for Israel to surrender to the territorial demands of Mahmoud Abbas permitting the formation of another Arab state consisting of all of Judea, Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem. These lands will be necessarily denuded of their Jewish residents. This confiscation of their lands and businesses will be made without any manner of remuneration for their value; any financial compensation would be left to Israel to provide which basically comes to a form of double financial jeopardy. Of course all of this leads us to the recent revelation that President Obama and his close knot inner advisors are mulling exactly what sanctions they should place on Israel if Israel does not immediately adopt policies in line with the concepts which President Obama has expressed repeatedly to Prime Minister Netanyahu without any obedience from the Israeli leader. The particular area which has President Obama incensed is any building which Israel allows in areas beyond the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice Lines which denoted Israeli controlled areas up until the Six Day War in June of 1967. What makes this seem frighteningly identical to what Israel perceives as its perfect storm would be the presentation by Jordan under Chapter Seven Resolution bindingly stipulating that Israel surrender all lands beyond the Green Line and return to controlling only the lands it held before the Six Day War and force the Israeli Jews living currently in any parts of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem to be resettled within Israel at Israeli expense and have the United States refuse to utilize their veto and allowing the resolution to be adopted.

 

This may be the exact meaning of the threat supposedly revealed to the Israeli leftist newspaper Haaretz which printed the report this past week. This has been considered the opening salvo from the Obama White House team to affect the Israeli elections. American perfidy intervening in Israeli elections attempting to influence the results has a history. The Clinton White House dispatched members of their election team to Israel to assist the Labor Party and other left leaning Parties in their successful, well, one might call it a putsch others a campaign with a smidgen of foreign interference, whichever you prefer in assuring the then Prime Minister Netanyahu was not successful in retaining his position. The following results from this intervention led indirectly to the Gaza divestment under Prime Minister Ariel Sharon who was elected to replace Netanyahu as the leader of the Likud Party as a result of his loss partially due to the intervention by President Bill Clinton’s operatives in the 1999 elections. President Clinton pulled this coup of sorts in order to put a more pliable leader into the Prime Minister’s office in order to permit him to reach that ever difficult Arab-Israeli peace accord. President Clinton went forth arm-in-arm with Prime Minister Ehud Barak who succeeded Netanyahu thanks to the political assist from the President of the United States onto make peace with Yasser Arafat by presenting him with the most generous of offers by the Israelis working with President Clinton. Despite their best combined efforts, the end result was a scene covered visually by many news reports showing United States Secretary of State Madeline Albright running to the best of her ability after Yasser Arafat in Paris calling out pleadingly for him to please return to the negotiations as Arafat strode out into his limousine and departed. Chairman Arafat found himself presented with a plan by Israel which met his every demand set forth the previous day which the Israelis made their offer as President Clinton gave them whatever assurances were required for them to make the sacrifices. We will never know whether President Clinton was being forthright or simply telling the necessitated tale to reach the desired goal as this offer was refused by Arafat by his walkout as he could not say no to the exact terms he had demanded, only walking out could provide the needed escape from reaching an agreement. Why President Clinton was taken at his word is baffling as previously President Clinton had made a verbal agreement with Prime Minister Netanyahu to release Israeli spy Johnathan Pollard in return for Netanyahu meeting some demand and after Netanyahu complied, President Clinton told him he was a fool believing that Pollard would ever be released by the United States. There were rumors of a more pointed rejection which will not be quoted here as there is no way to verify the comments.

 

All things considered, it will be interesting while covering the Israeli election cycle on how exactly President Obama sticks his fingers into the mix and attempts to stir it to his desired pleasure. The one guarantee is that there will be interference with the Israeli campaigning by not just President Obama and company but also many Europeans will do what they are able though their injections will come through the use mostly of NGOs that they pay to lobby Israel to meet European wishes. The European Union is liable to interfere more directly likely making bellicose demands that Israel consider certain realities before electing their next leader. Realities is defines as the world according to the European union and has little if anything to do with what is best for Israel except most often being directly opposed to what is best for Israel. Then there will be the campaigns and their loose dealings with the truth which in our case means disagrees with our sensible perceptions of reality. We will also continue to cover other items of concerns including the negotiations of the P5+1 and Iran, Arab terrorism, and general items of interest concerning Europe, the Middle East, the United States, the United Nations and the world and beyond, especially if that much anticipated UFO landing on the White House lawn, in front of the Knesset in Jerusalem, or on the Temple Mount in which case Israel will be blamed for attempting to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque with their spaceship which had been hiding on the far side of the Moon.

Palestinian Authority leadership echoed the accusation against Israeli actions which Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was whispering into the receptive ear of United States Secretary of State John Kerry as the two met in Abbas’s mountain top villa in Jordan. Apparently the Israelis are guilty of actually attempting to allow Israeli Jews to visit the Temple Mount which the Palestinians claim that such Jewish presence violates the sanctity of the al-Aksa Mosque which apparently includes the entirety of the Temple Mount rather than actually being limited to its actual structural limits, its actual walls. This is a new definition which replaces the former definition in which the al-Aksa Mosque was defined to include any areas in the front of the Mosque such as within some number of feet. That definition was meaningless as the Jews permitted after hours of waiting and invasive searches of their persons and being threatened with arrest if they transgressed any limitations and did not obey any orders, limitations or changes which may be communicated to them and they were forewarned that they may be forced to leave hurriedly should any confrontation break out. In the past few weeks it has been difficult to even allow any Jews to visit the Temple Mount as the Palestinians have been consistently rioting and threatening to assault any Jews which might be permitted even the shortest of visits on the Temple Mount. These riots are necessitated because Jews might actually visit the Temple Mount and this desire by Jews is the instigation which must be resolved by actions which will no longer permit Jews to enter the Temple Mount ever, period.

 

Alongside of these demands the Palestinians in the rest of Jerusalem have been rioting to even greater extent than their normal and acceptable levels demanding that Jews be disallowed from residing anywhere bordering their areas in Jerusalem. These riots have mostly aimed at any Jewish vehicles which may pass near their neighborhoods as well as launching assaults on police and other law enforcement personnel. These attacks and riots are also directly in response to the Jewish presence in any parts of Jerusalem, especially within East Jerusalem. There have been threats to riot and forbid Jewish prayers at the Western Wall though such are unlikely as security at the Kotel is strict and with a high number of enforcement personnel in place. It seems like it is only going to be a matter of time before these riots charge into Jewish neighborhoods and we have repeats of the Hevron and Jerusalem riots in which dozens of Jews were murdered and many more were injured during the 1920s and 1930s while the British were responsible for maintaining order. The results of these riots were to move the Jews from their homes and businesses in a measure by the British to placate the Arab anger. This was nothing but blaming and punishing the victims as the Jews were more likely to obey rulings and relocation than were the Arabs who began the riots in order to force the Jews out of Hevron so they could claim it as an Islamic city free of any Jewish influence and thus without any Jewish history. We are seeing the same pogroms except this time the inaction and futile words are coming from an Israeli establishment which appears to have taken the same position as the British, do whatever is necessary in order to keep the peace. Their desire is to restrict Jewish rights in order to quiet the Muslim sensitivities. The real unfortunate thing is that such actions only serve to increase the Palestinian levels and areas of their rioting in order to push the Israeli government placing new realities on the ground in order to claim more land especially to further restrict and remove any Jewish presence or claims of ownership.

 

All of this comes at the same time as the newly appointed Foreign Minister of the European Union, Italy’s Federica Mogherini, who has spent the entirety of her first weeks demanding that Israel surrender to the Palestinians’ demands for the formation of their state. She has demanded that Israel leave their rights to access to the Western Wall, Temple Mount and numerous other holy sites which exist in East Jerusalem and throughout Judea and Samaria, an area which is steeped in Jewish history, and surrender control, by that access to them, which is tantamount to the Catholics and Italians allowing some foreign forces control and forbidding their presence within Rome and the Vatican simply because they desire and now claim them as solely their sacred site. If one believes that such is even potentially possible then they likely have no understanding what sacred sites mean to so many peoples. This comparison is lost on the average politicians of the United States, Europe or just about anywhere in the Western world as the average politician has no religion beyond their political party and careers. They have no concept of how any person in this modern world could ever place any importance and invest so much energy and emotions over something as minor of any piece of land as to them land only matters if it is within their district or affects their big money providers. These single-minded obsessions of politicians are also slowly turning their hope to resist the growing influence of Islam in their nations.

 

In the reports of just the past twenty-four hours there have been three additional reported knifing attempts prevented, at least one attempted use of a car against pedestrians, and continued rioting on the Temple Mount and across East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. Such reports of events are frightening and have been escalating thus far in a linear manner defined by its steep upward rate of climb making Jewish presence in some neighborhoods simply too dangerous for them to even drive past on major thoroughfares which pass adjacent these riotous communities. But fear not as Secretary of State Kerry has arrived to save the day. After his meeting with Abbas it was arranged to summon Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to the Jordanian capital of Amman where the Prime Minister sat down facing Abbas, Jordanian King Abdullah II with Secretary of State Kerry mediating the talks. Prime Minister Netanyahu basically walked into a room where the other three men presented him with a done deal which the other three men had devised, put to paper and all but ratified requiring only Netanyahu’s signature of agreement to be the solution to the problem. Where it is not yet completely certain what was foisted on Prime Minister Netanyahu, but an initial sign has been the new position of the Israeli security personnel on the Temple Mount no longer to impose any restrictions on Muslim entry to the Temple Mount. It remains to be seen if they have also been ordered not to intervene when rioting ensues. A good guess would be that the Israeli security responsibility for the Temple Mount will have been confined to the periphery and some entrances and the Jordanian Waqf will now determine if and when any rioting has exceeded acceptable limits. We can also expect that Jewish access to this holiest of holy sites in the Jewish faith will be denied for some period of time until the riots fizzle out or potentially permanently forbidden entry. The latter, I fear, will be the truth and getting such a restriction rescinded will likely be next to impossible. Further, as the leftist who control of the media will be ignoring the assaults and threats on the Jews and Israelis by their Arab neighbors, they will quote the accusations made by Mahmoud Abbas verbatim and taking his every word to be the gospel truth worthy of repetition in the lead and closure of their every article. The reality is quite the opposite with the Palestinians restricting others’ rights to use the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, East Jerusalem and in time the rest of Jerusalem and eventually all of Israel.

 

Polls show that near 80% of Palestinians, if not over, support ISIS and desire to join ISIS should they ever bring their perceived strength against Israel as many Palestinians desire to be a part of the fighting as they perceive ISIS as capable of defeating Israel for them. They may be correct should the resistance put forth by the Israelis be restrained and constrained as it has been against the Palestinian Authority and their instigations and propagandas made with the full cooperation of the World’s leftist media who have been perfectly willing and eager to turn their pages over to Palestinian Authority lies and accusations as they too desire to destroy Israel. Perhaps they would reconsider if they realized that after Israel might fall their nations would be the next to be invaded and transformed into a Sharia state. The one item which allows for their mania is that Israel, when push comes to shove, will rise up and defend western values and western way of life for the rest of the western nations, not that they actually deserve such but because Israel will refuse to die just to make the elite in Europe and elsewhere to rejoice ever so briefly the collapse of Israel until the collapse of the west reaches their shores. The collapse may still strike much of the west even should the Israelis stand their ground and remain the last vestige and island of western values and sanity. All will be revealed in time but in the interim, could some of those who retain even a last vestige of sanity in the west please stand and scream until those in the halls of power, particularly the European Union, listen and understand the threats poised to subsume their way of life and revoke their freedoms. Such would be much appreciated and we await the signs of the beginning of the rescue of western thought and freedoms.
