The Façade is Failing

 

The Arab Islamic supremacist offensive using the Palestinian Arab population ruled out of Gaza City and Ramallah is faltering and sputtering towards its ending. There is spiraling violence which is whipped up periodically often using the Temple Mount and Jerusalem and the apparent Judaizing it might face should Israel decides to actually carry through with the Zionist demands for building the Third Temple. The Third Temple need not transplant or replace anything already sitting upon the Temple Mount as room exists for quite a large and expansive building to be added. There need not be any destructive efforts and instead a sharing of the holy expanse which is holy to three religions without any one religion attempting dominance over the other two (see images below). The pretense that the Jews have no claim or history to the Temple Mount and that the structures found there were all built by Islamic rulers since the seventh or eighth century because history began with the onset of Islam and anything which preceded has no relative justification is just that, a pretense. This is one of the reasons that Islamic holy structures are often built upon the sights of other religious buildings or even are former religious structures which were transformed into Islamic holy sites such as the Hagia Sophia which was originally built in Constantinople and when the city was renamed Istanbul the Hagia Sophia became a Mosque (see image below). The Hagia Sophia had extensive mosaics which were either torn out or, fortunately, most were simply plastered over. The Hagia Sophia had some of the mosaics restored as it has served recently as a museum for both its Christian as well as its Islamic history. How long the Turkish rulers and the Islamic world decide to allow the current use to continue is open to debate as President Erdoğan appears to be attempting to return to Turkeys Ottoman past. This trending in Turkey and across the Islamic world may be coming to a critical point where the world could turn on a single incident or a brief series of events. It is this apparent coming focal point which may have determining ramifications into the future similar to the fall of the Ottoman and the Austria-Hungarian Empires during World War I which came on the heels of the fall of the Tzars in Russia making for an entirely new face to the world or the turn after the fall of Rome and Carthage which had ruled the Mediterranean Sea between them for a thousand years followed by the rise of the Islamic forces streaming across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and into the fringes of the eastern and western edges of Europe. What the world will look at in another decade or two may be entirely different than it does today. The entire world is hanging in wait for the other shoe to fall and one can choose whatever terror attack they please as the first shoe that fell. Where will that shoe strike the Earth?

For a hint at where that shoe will target our lovely little rock floating in orbit around an average yellow star between two arms of the Milky Way was hinted at by the reaction to new United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres little miscue of acceptable protocols in our overly sensitive world where some believe they own all the rights to history and only their history is permitted to be used. Palestinian Authority (PA) Jerusalem Affairs Minister Adnan al-Husseini demanded an apology last month from United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres because of his statement that it was “completely clear that the Temple that the Romans destroyed in Jerusalem was a Jewish temple.” The statement according to Adnan al-Husseini had “violated all legal, diplomatic and humanitarian customs and overstepped his role as secretary general.” Apparently stating that there was history before the Arabs and Islam arrived in Jerusalem and that the Romans had ever been in Jerusalem or destroyed a temple there, let alone The Temple, and especially the Second Temple of the Jews was unacceptable. Inferring that the Jews have any history in Jerusalem, especially that the Jews had constructed two Temples in Jerusalem and that the Temple Mount was not built by the great Islamic conquerors of Jerusalem offends Islamic sensitivities. Such commentary must be nipped in the bud as if the truth were to be heard then perhaps the Europeans might realize that the Jews really did have a history in Jerusalem and stop supporting the Palestinian Arabs and their criminal terrorism committed against the Jews and intended to destroy Israel in steps using both terror and politics. Islam is terrified that Israel might actually be permitted to realize their rightful and promised homelands and gain full dominion over Judea and Samaria, the historic Jewish heartlands where the Prophets strode, the Judges ruled and Kings David and Solomon Ruled and where Solomon built his Temple to Hashem in the center of Jerusalem. Having the Jews be recognized and permitted their promised homeland is treated as if it would be a dagger into the heart of Islam, a mortal wound to their Muslim sensitivities from which they might never recover.

 

The reaction to the United Nations Secretary General’s accurate recognition of historical fact has identified the exact center of the coming maelstrom, the location of the eye of the coming storm. The coming storm will be triggered in Jerusalem but will sweep across the world soon thereafter never returning full force to Jerusalem as that battle will have been lost. The incitement to terror over the Temple Mount is but one small faction on which the violence is centered. There is also the fuming anger over the promise by President Trump during the campaign that he will move the American Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and, as if that was not sufficient, also stated he planned to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital City. President Trump did walk that recognition comment back to meaning only West Jerusalem but that was not sufficient of a mea-culpa for the PA leadership who continued using the comments as fuel for violence. Many Imams in Mosques across Jerusalem and the PA ruled areas incited violence as a reaction to the horrific assault on Islamic superiority and ascension over Jerusalem and directed it be targeted on Israelis. One individual took these sermons to heart and used his truck to murder four Israelis while running the vehicle through a crowd of Israeli cadets disembarking a bus in Jerusalem. Mahmoud Abbas welcomed the actions of this Palestinian Arab hero and promised his widow 2,900 shekels per month for life, in accordance with Palestinian Authority Law. But just ask Mahmoud Abbas and in English he will gladly inform you that he is taking every opportunity and possible avenue to end all incitement and terrorism in the areas under his control. His statements proving this insistence that all terrorism and attacks must stop and were not of his or the PA leadership’s making can be seen below. Of course this was not the fault of the PA leadership, it was the Imams in the Mosques following through on their marching orders which came from the PA leadership, but they just discussed theoretical ideas with the Imams, no actually requesting they go through with such instigations with their sermons using the intent of President Trump to move the embassy or the fact that Jews were presumably going to flatten the entire top of the Temple Mount and build their Temple or that the Jews were seen making plans to hold Satanic Rituals in the al-Aqsa Mosque. Nothing of this kind has currently or previously been used to instigate violence against the Jews specifically and Israelis in general. That is what the video below will inform you as will these records of statements translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

 

 

Israel will be the center and the reason given for the coming storm. Europe and North America as well as potentially India and Central Africa will bear the brunt of the storm which will slowly escalate. The United States has already been set as a target for terror due to the insults and threats which allegedly came from President Trump as he is seen to be fully backing Israel in all items and his call for moving the embassy is being taken far more seriously than the same promise made by Presidents since Reagan. This time they are sure it is for real, may that be true. What will further hasten these events is the fact that the majority of Israelis have reached the end of their patience and their government has begun to realize the impatience which has grown. The Israeli Zionist core has had it with destroying Jewish homes while allowing all other illegal construction to be largely ignored. Even Jewish homes and communities built with government approval and having all the necessary paperwork have been assaulted by the Supreme Court on the flimsiest of evidence and even without any evidence as they appear to believe if it was filed, then the Jews must be at fault. This is the result of a leftist court working with a leftist minority flying completely out of control. This will lead to a confrontation in Israel and the makings have presented themselves with the recent law passed to place Israeli rule over Area C and the settlements, all the settlements giving them legality and certify them against further leftist actions. The Attorney General and Supreme Court will undoubtedly be petitioned by a selection of leftist groups over this law and should they attempt to claim the law unconstitutional it may well ignite a final conflict between the Zionists and the Post-Zionist left. The first point is that Israel has no Constitution thus nothing can be unconstitutional and the current law is not in violation of any of the basic laws. Should the Supreme Court and Attorney General take actions against the law, the next logical step would be to pass a new version which is even more strident by granting recognition to all future homes, communities, business districts and any other Israeli building throughout Area C which is under full Israeli civil and security governance under the Oslo Accords and make this new law part of the Basic Laws thus securing it from leftist assaults. Once Israel has completed the coming debate and all building in Areas C is made legal and permanent, the debate with the Arab Palestinians will take on a whole new tact.

 

The expected result will likely be open incitement and full on assault against all Israel. This will not last very long and the solution of returning the Arab Palestinians into Jordan and the backing of a group in Jordan known as the Jordan Opposition Coalition (JOC) (الائتلاف الاردني للمعارضة). For this and other information please read our recent article with more links titled Israel’s Worst Enemy is Israel which entreats the idea which is supported by the JOC that Jordan was the Arab State and west of the Jordan was Israel as the Jewish State and the two were to be separate yet allied working for mutual advantages. Should Israel manage to also bring President Donald Trump on board with the idea and with his assistance along with Egypt and Saudi Arabia to manage to pressure King Hussein of Jordan to become a titular head and no longer have the power he currently wields but maintaining his privilege, this would allow the Arab Palestinians to finally rule the nation in which they carry a near 80% majority. The British placed the Hashemites over the Arab Palestinian majority and that has remained the system with the King using the Bedouins as his enforcers against the Arab Palestinians. Bringing this to an end and granting the Arab Palestinians the rule in what was to be their actual country, then they can be relocated from Israel just as almost one million Jews were relocated from the Arab world into Israel between 1948 through 1959. There will be screams that this is unprecedented which is a bald faced lie. There was a far larger migration between India and Pakistan with much greater violence. There was a similar migration of Germans from Polish lands taken after World War I as well as Germans from areas taken by France at the end of World War I. The migration of populations in the making of nations after conflicts has a long history of forced migrations. This would not be setting any precedence at all. The leadership of the PA would need to be granted asylum somewhere allowing them to live out their lives in comfort with their billions in stolen funds collected over the years.

 

After such an agreement despite it likely being accepted by the Arab Palestinians who would receive ample financial incentives or could remain as legal alien Jordanian citizens residing within Israel as long as they remain law abiding, the rest of the Islamic world, primarily Iran, could react using increased violence through largely terrorism. The world will find a means of adjusting and eventually find a means of preventing much of the intended violence. The problems could begin once Iran has a sizeable nuclear arsenal and the means for delivering these weapons. This will unfortunately become reality within the next decade to decade and a half. Then the Iranians will be capable of fomenting as much terrorism as they desire using Syria, Lebanon and Iraq as bases in addition to their own training camps run by the IRGC specialists. Iran also has allies they have cultivated in South America including the Tri-Border Region in an area where Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina meet but none of the nations bother to enforce much law. Hezballah along with the IRGC run training and are prepared to marshal terror operations through Mexico and into the United States (see map below). The region is replete with two airfields and a series of towns around which the terror infrastructure is based. In addition there is ample dense jungle in the area into which any hunted groups could melt and appear across one of the borders with ease. Perhaps it is the difficulty of organizing a combined strike which prevents any real enforcement.

Whatever becomes the spark, the world is spiraling towards chaos. The problems in the Middle East have already started to spread to Europe, especially to France, Britain and Germany. These problems will become exacerbated by the interconnectedness of the European Union. Once the Islamic forces have gained citizenship there will be no preventing their free travel throughout Europe and the spread of their Islamist agenda. The escalation is evident and will only continue to grow. The Europeans will join the leftists in the United States in laying all the blame on the Administration of United States President Donald Trump. This will simply be a false way of bringing additional pressure as the left attempts by any means to drive the Republicans from power. Should they succeed at this endeavor then the last best hope for Western Civilization will probably die. The left’s only answer to the pressures of Islam is to surrender and blame their enemies and Islamophobia. All one need do is witness how after every terror attack the first step is deny it was terror and when that fails then press the Islamophobia button and demand that everybody not over-react, which means blaming the terrorist. We are to love the terrorist but hate our own history. This is going to work out so well. At least Israel is awake, will the United States remain conscious or will they fall back to sleep. There is quite a lot riding on the answer to that question.

The Criminalization of the Jewish State

 

Thank you President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Power as well as members of the United Nations Security Council, China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States, Angola, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal, Spain, Ukraine, Uruguay and Venezuela for your thoughtful nonbinding UNSC Res. 2334 and especially your special efforts expressing in uncertain references that the world was now free to economically and politically attack Israel with the world’s blessings. Thank you the many areas in the world, especially in Europe as depicted more politely than we would be able by Giulio Meotti in his editorial in Arutz Sheva titled Welcome to Europe’s “Israel Free” Cities and it listing a sampling of these open-minded, progressive, free-thinking and anxious cities vying to be amongst the first to boycott all things Israel. We find ourselves fortunate that you are not sending representatives to Israel to paint “Jude” on the storefronts of Israeli retail outlets and manufacturers to further enlighten the world that they should be shunned and boycotted. We would like to say that we were surprised, shocked even, but we knew you were just waiting for President Obama to make hating and boycotting Israel popular and made “kosher” as well, if such a reference does not upset you as being too Jewish. It is our best of hopes that every Israeli and many Jews decide that visiting your hospitable climes or Jews simply find residing in your loving, warm and caring cities an affront and move somewhere they will be accepted and loved. We have plenty of room here in Israel and will hopefully soon have a whole lot more.

 

The good news is many European Jews are finding the spiteful atmosphere just a tad too hateful and have moved up their decision for making Aliyah and returned to their true home, Israel. Perhaps these cities, towns, municipalities and even entire swaths of the countryside, as in Spain, deciding that a boycott of Israel is in their best interests will place the hint to the Jews residing within areas where the Jewish State is considered something to be spited and blacklisted might not be the most advantageous or even the place where their future may not prove healthy and get the itch which will be given to many by Hashem in the near future and come home before their friendly neighbors decide that a Jew is too Israeli for them. The world is slowly deciding for the Jews that they need to return home to Israel where they will find a happiness unlike any they have ever experienced. All of a sudden being a Jew becomes something easy and so comfortable as you are no longer the other, the outsider, the Jew which will be tolerated as long as it does not act too Jewish. The world may not want things made in Israel, but they actually depend daily on things Israeli and they will not give up those items which make their lives not only easier and richer but in some cases make their lives possible. Their cell phones depend on Israel. If they have stents in the heart they likely were made by Israel. Their instant messenger coding was initially written in Israel. Many agricultural technologies such as drip irrigation which saves water while increasing crop health was invented in Israel. But in order to assist these haters across the world who decide that all things Israel and those things tainted by Israel must be boycotted, allow us to help with this list of ten products you will need to avoid or simply remember all the items from Made in Israel for a more complete list. The thing you won’t need to give up is Stock 84 brandy as it is so good we do not export this gem so you will need to actually visit Israel to enjoy this delicious cordial.

 

Sometimes one need make fun of what is happening, even make jokes about it as the reality is so disgusting and unacceptable that being completely honest and serious all the time becomes tedious and disgust builds. There is little difference between the Nazis painting “Jude” on shop windows and then one fateful night the anti is raised and windows are smashed and stores ransacked with their inventory either stolen or destroyed and even entire blocks in Jewish neighborhoods are set to the torch and blaze throughout the night. From there we know what came next. Defenseless Jews whose weapons had been confiscated using the lists of gun ownership from the Weimar Republic who required gun licensing which they promised would never be used for confiscation. Well, that went completely wrong as the Nazis broke that promise taking the guns from German citizens to keep order and remove any possibility of public threat to their complete domination of the society. This left the Jews, the Roma, and others who the Nazis labeled as undesirables or submerses completely defenseless allowing for the rounding up, mass transfer of entire communities and entire populations leading eventually to the extermination camps. That is where this path leads whether anybody has the nerve to admit this is where the world is heading. There is a difference this time; the Jews you are targeting cannot be disarmed as long as they have Israel. Wait, that makes things all the clearer, doesn’t it.

First weaken Israel with a subversive group claiming lands which the world through the League of Nations and so many treaties and even the promise of the United Nations within Article 80 of the Charter guaranteed all the British Mandate lands west of the Jordan River. The world is attempting to force Israel to give away these promised lands because unless Israel agrees to part with the lands, then they belong to Israel, period, and the world knows this. They refuse to say what they know is the truth because once again they believe they can force the Jews to be disarmed, this time through the destruction of Israel under the barrage of rockets from an Arab terror state carved from Judea and Samaria taking the high ground overlooking all of Israel. That was what UNSC Res 2334 and the follow-on Paris conference were presumed to allow, nay, force. President Obama could singlehandedly push through the UNSC Res 2334 which defined all the lands beyond the Green Line as reserved for that Arab State which now Israel is presumed to be bound to granting. There is one problem, that resolution is no more than a UNGA Resolution like so many that have passed there or the condemnations from the menagerie of Human Rights groups and the presumptuous gifting of the Temple Mount to Islam denying the Jewish and Christian historic and previous claims and ties by UNESCO. The United Nations can pass whatever they decide they think will disposes Israel of her claims and lands but none will stand before any honest court of law, including the International Criminal Court. We have discussed this quite a bit lately and shown even an Egyptian judge sitting on the court stated as an addendum to a decision which the UNGA had requested as stated towards the end of this article. The land belongs to Israel as long as Israel demands so and that is where this must remain.

 

The latest events have had a striking effect which was the opposite of their intention. Right now it matters little what Prime Minister Netanyahu may think or what the government currently sitting in the Knesset might claim, the Israeli people will have the final say and that will be exclaimed with pride that Judea and Samaria along with East Jerusalem are the Jewish ancestral heartland and we will never surrender that land. Any government attempting to give away these lands will crumble and fail with new elections being demanded by the Israeli Zionist majority. The best that the Arabs can hope to gain is the right to behave as semiautonomous governance where they care for their people and rule their cities but under Israeli oversight and protection without anything beyond a police security force, not an actual military. They will never steal the ancient heart of Israel and never ever again tear out eternal capital city of Jerusalem in half and steal the Temple Mount or Old City from Israeli rule. Our annexation of Jerusalem is as final as is our annexation of the Golan Heights. There actually need not be any formal annexation of Judea and Samaria as they are already Israeli and will remain Israeli. There will be no debate and the world can yell, stamp their feet, shake their fists, boycott our goods and in the end they will willingly accept the miracles we discover and the advances in computers, telecommunications, agriculture, medicine, drugs, treatments and other advances across all fields because they will want these items and their people will want these items. Just as the boycotters are not surrendering their cell phones, having their stents replaced, avoiding instant messaging, endoscopy in a capsule, clean geothermal power already built in more than twenty countries, the solar window providing power generation and transparency, cherry tomatoes, BabySense’s device which monitors a baby’s breathing and movements through the mattress during sleep, EpiLady which made the first electric hair remover, Rav Bariach introduced steel security door or any of these other forty-five items. The Israeli people are starting to reach the end of their patience and will soon be demanding action that the government will need heed or else a new government will soon be elected which will listen as the Zionists in Israel and will make their voices heard and their presence felt. Their patience has about run out on the empty promises and knows that the time has come as of a few hours from this posting and probably by the time you are reading this. The time has come and the world can react and do whatever they think is required. We have seen how attempting to work with the world gets us; hate, boycotts and threats from every corner. We have reached the point where we are willing to state, “What is the world going to do, hate us? Been there and received that and really do not care as the world will get over it, or not.”

Imagine the Return to a Revolutionary Ideal

 

Once upon a time there was the Black Robe Regiment which was the name given by the British to the Colonial Preachers who supported American independence. Not only did they preach independence, they very often were officers in the militias against the Red Coats. The British did all they could to murder these preachers and many gave their lives for the Revolution but the danger did not curtail the Black Robe Regiment preachers who refused to be cowed and were one of the main inspirations of the American revolution. Their sermons inspired and often their brash and brave actions kept the Revolution alive and brought a number of victories against the odds with their bravery and words motivating their fellow congregants often at the most crucial of moments. The United States owes much of the founding in the fighting and the religious basis of the Founding Fathers and the state legislators whose input and approvals were required in the formation of both the federation of America and then the Constitution which was the foundation for the United States of America. There is a possibility that the Revolution could have failed without the local inspiration and organization which was often centered around the churches and their Black Robe Regiment preachers.

All that changed in 1954 at the behest of Texas Senator Lyndon Baines Johnson’s proposed legislation to amend the tax codes affecting houses of worship such as churches, synagogues, mosques, or temples and other nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) tax exemptions. The amended tax code limited the freedom of speech by members of organizations and entities who had tax exempt status under 501(c)(3) regulations making any political speech such as supporting a candidate, party or other specified political speech. The amendment to the tax codes was named for its presenter and is called the Johnson Amendment. Particularly prohibited was conducting political campaign activities to intervene in elections to public office or other sermonizing which may be perceived as backing a candidate or party. The language was vague and unspecific enough that many clergy were silenced from mentioning even certain Bible passages near election times as they might be construed as taking sides on a campaign issue and by doing so backing a particular candidate or party. Such brought to an end political preaching from the pulpit, at least in theory as some such still exists but as long as the parishioners are singing the same tune, nobody complains and such activity continues. This was specifically used to target and silence clergy from endorsing candidates. Over time this embargo on political speech became partisan in nature in too many locations as a ban against conservative politicking while backing leftist causes or progressive Democrat candidates. Still, care was taken to never mention any names and instead to often mimic campaign slogans working them into sermons or choosing verses carefully for recitation which would appear to back one candidate’s positions or damn the opposing candidate. Still, clergy still need be far more reserved and careful and a far cry from the history of clergy, especially when one remembers the Black Robe Regiment.

Should Donald Trump as president keep his word and successfully repeal the Johnson Amendment thus freeing certain tax exempt institutions and their personnel from conducting any political activities, especially campaigning or endorsing candidates, imagine the consequences. We would witness the liberation of the clergy and the resultant rebirth potentially of a new Black Robe regiment preaching and supporting political positions more aligned with their religious beliefs. There need be no great fears from secularists as they won’t be in houses of worship forced to hear any sermonizing, especially political sermonizing. Rescinding this regulation, expunging it from the tax code, would be a strike for freedom of speech. Placing a political muzzle on the clergy and threatening their tax exempt status was a bad idea from the start, one might even say criminal. But then Lyndon Baines Johnson was not exactly known for tact or freedom of expression for anybody disagreeing with his views. He was better known for strong-arming political rivals by any and all means at his disposal. This was most evident during his time as President which also served to allow his passing every piece of legislation which became the backbone of his “Great Society” and a remaking of the social safety net and the start of an increased welfare system. Some have blamed this for many societal problems being faced by American society currently. Just maybe a little moralizing before Election Day voting would serve as a positive influence. Just Maybe.
