Will This Be the Last Surge of Islam?

 

There will be reactions from all sides on the slaughter in Paris, France this weekend. There will be calls for arming the populace or at least those who desire to carry weapons and undertake the responsibility with respect to the law and the society. There will be those going exactly the other direction demanding all firearms, especially automatic rifles as well as the scary looking so-called assault weapons and who will denounce those calling for arming everybody. Those two groups can go to some out-of-the-way corner and argue vehemently and vociferously for as long as they desire as long as they leave the sane people from suffering their diametrically opposed views of the world as neither one is the complete answer. Both those extremes are also what makes democracies, specifically democratic Republics, so preferred a manner of governance as the fact that there must be debate, something the prior mentioned will assure their side gets their two-cents worth in, and this causes deliberations and eventually some compromise is reached which has had all the sharp edges and deep crevices smoothed over and something that all can agree is adequate usually ensued, or that is how it is supposed to function. There will be a lot of debate in the Western World about what to do with the Islamic refugees, many of which are true refugees but apparently all too many are not so innocent, nor are truly refugees, dispersed within the hundreds of thousands swarming into Europe and beginning to arrive in New Orleans in the United States with ten thousand are due shortly with the initial groups already ashore.

The one thing we can be assured of is we will hear from more experts expounding disparate and contradictory ideas on how to best handle the situation and most will be so far afield that they will at best offer entertainment or at least amusement. We can always count on experts to provide the comic relief until the lawmakers start agreeing and trying to implement their suggested remedies. The truth is the world at large needs to address what is coming and whether we like it or not, something evil this way comes. The alarmists are once again on the right track and viewing the world as it is and not how we wish or experts tell us the world might be. The Paris attacks are far from the first assault in this coming conflict. Paris wasn’t even the first of this type of attack by terrorists as that assault came in Mumbai, India on November 26, 2008, where hundreds were slaughtered and the assault lasted three days before order was restored. The lone terrorist taken alive was Abu Jundal who was charged and tried for his alleged role in the terror assault.

These events are the recent escalation which was set in motion by the bombing of the World Trade Center Towers parking garage where a truck filled with explosives had been parked and detonated on February 26, 1993 leaving a sixty-foot cratered hole in the structure collapsing several floors directly adjacent to the bomb and six people were killed and more than a thousand people were injured. The structural supports for the World Trade Towers, though compromised, were not sufficiently damaged to cause either tower to collapse and contained the blast damage to the somewhat local area. The parking garage and immediate surroundings had taken more than five-hundred-million-dollars in damage. After the attack it became necessary to evacuate fifty-thousand people from the buildings where hundreds were suffering from smoke inhalation. This evacuation lasted the entire afternoon closing numerous offices on the larger effected areas including areas which were initially considered dangerous due to the structural damage and danger of further collapse.

Needless to add, the World Trade Center Towers after this failed attempt to destroy this world renowned image of the strength of the United States and its economic wealth as well as the fact that several government departments located their Now York headquarters within the World trade Center Complex making it an even more enticing target became an obsession to al-Qaeda and its leader, Osama ben-Laden who eventually planned an attack using four civilian aircraft to attack the two main towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and one flight we will never know their intended target because that plane, flight 93, was brought down by the passengers after they had learned of the other attacks and they stormed the cockpit to take back control of the aircraft which crashed into the ground as the terrorists chose death before dishonor and are likely proud of that choice wherever their souls may be rotting. Of course, most of the world believes the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center as the seminal moment the terror war began, but historians will trace the modern Islamic aggressions to the seventh century and the breakout from the Arabian Peninsula of the forces of Islam which eventually were stopped in Tours, France and twice at Vienna, Italy and now rule in one form or another the entirety of North Africa and the Middle East (MENA) and large populations of followers of Islam reaching to the southern islands of the Philippines and into Indonesia.

Stepping ahead to the present and the attacks in Paris, please allow us to repeat our emotions and wishes from yesterday’s article where we added to the beginning the following, “Our Prayers and emotions reach out to the victims of terror everywhere in the world and especially at this time to Paris and all of France. May the people and their leaders restore order and care for those injured both physically and emotionally. Our caring thoughts and prayers for a recovery from the horrendous acts being perpetrated in the name of submitting the innocent through brutality; may the peace and goodness win out these days.” These attacks had at the time of our writing had taken approaching one-hundred-fifty innocents with untold injured and many dozens of people reported as missing by families and friends with the one constant, confusion and conflicting reports. As with the Charlie Hebdo murderers, the social media is filled with sympathy and posts of “Je suis Paris” and “Je suis France” which, though understanding and appropriate, the sympathy is such a contrast to the reactions to the shooting of a mother and father in front of their four children sitting in the back seat of the vehicle on an early morning in early October and just yesterday another family was struck by terrorists in a drive-by-shooting in which the father and elder son were murdered, a second teenage son was injured with multiple gunshots from a drive-by shooting and the four remaining children were deeply shocked just this past week. Israel has been under a continuous series of terrorist attacks under the direct demands of their governing body with Mahmoud Abbas directly organizing the violence giving it his blessings with his now infamous declarations in which Abbas begins his tirade demanding, we won’t allow Jews with their “filthy feet” to “defile our al-Aqsa Mosque” and “We bless every drop of blood spilled for Allah. We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood.” Abbas continued further on stating, “Every Martyr will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah…” Abbas went on to claim during this tirade meant to inspire additional deadly violence against Israelis aimed primarily at the Jews demanding, “The al-Aqsa (meaning the entirety of the grounds and structures upon the Temple Mount) is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours and they have no right (Jews in particular and Israelis in general) to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” Despite the numerous stabbings, vehicles used as ramrods into crowds of people waiting for busses or light rail, large rocks hurled at cars, slinging rocks shot at people and finally shootings have begun and who knows what the future holds as there is always the possibility for bombings, rockets from Hamas and Islamic Jihad and lastly there are the one-hundred to one-hundred-fifty thousand rockets and missiles stored throughout Lebanon with the worst having ranges reaching everywhere in Israel and the largest having many-hundreds of kilos sized warheads yet whenever such events strike in Israel, instead of seeing “אני ישראלי” (I am Israeli) we get warnings that we should exercise restraint and that reacting may escalate the situation. After every terror attack throughout the world outside Israel the call is for steps to be taken to protect from any future such assault. There is sympathy pouring from all corners of the globe. In Israel we are told to basically suck it up and take care not to further upset the murdering beasts across the street in all too many cases. This differentiation must change and the reasons are legendary because as we pointed out near the beginning of this article, something evil this way comes.

 

Islam in its history has already experienced two distinct periods of expansion. The initial expansion started in approximately 610 lasting through 750. The initial spread came under Mohammad spreading throughout the Arabian Peninsula followed by the break-out across Middle East and through Egypt, Tunisia and Libya under the Four Caliphs and finally Umayyads reaching across the rest of North Africa into Spain before being turned back at Tours, France by Charles the Hammer Martel. This defeat ended the western advances under Islam and from 750 through around 1300 Islam consolidated their unbelievable expansion and worked on educating their new territories converting the populations and the golden age of Islam experienced great knowledge and the important transcribing and keeping the Greek and Roman writings in math, philosophy, medicine and the carious sciences and literature. There was a transformation from the rule of the Umayyad to Abbasid dynasty. The Islamic Golden Age is traditionally said to have dated from the middle-7th century to the middle-13th century.

 

From the middle-14th came the second advance of what became the more familiar phase of Islamic advancement after the Abbasid dynasty had declined losing control of the furthest lands, something which historic logistical experts could have predicted as no empire can expand and continue to influence and control anything at a distance able to be reached by any mode available within a fairly brief period of days and not weeks. At this time there was the emergence of a small but well-organized and motivated tribe called the Ottoman Turks, or just the Ottomans, who were breaking out of northeastern areas of Turkey across the Islamic lands. The Ottomans not only took control of the existing Islamic lands but expanding them beyond the furthest points up the Nile and through southern Libya and further into Eastern Europe bordering southern Poland and Germany with some stubborn areas bypassed due to either treaty or simple heavy resistance making the conquest counterproductive. The Ottoman Empire, as the lands became known, lasted in a weakened state until they chose the wrong side of World War I standing with the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Germany. This is what led to the beginning of European nations ruling over the areas which were previously Ottoman Empire lands which means that the Europeans occupied the lands of MENA for far less than a century, with most less than fifty years, while Islam ruled them for as much as ten to twenty times as long, most for over a thousand years. This is a truth not often noted as it does not serve the occupying colonial guilt that is supposed to be laid upon the Europeans and associated peoples despite the realities of history.

 

The leaders of the Islamic nations do have some critical reasons which are valid to be irate with the Europeans beyond the obvious Sykes–Picot Agreement which made the boundaries of many modern states of the Middle East as well as the borders of much of Eastern Europe, the European portion is oft ignored while the Middle Eastern nations are often stressed as the result and reason for hate over the prolonged and intolerable European occupation. The further anger was based in the fact in the Quran which claims that no land ever under the rule of Islam may ever be allowed to be ruled by any other as such is an insult to Allah which must be repaired at any cost as immediately as possible. This is why Israel has faced a perpetual and unremitting string of terror attacks and wars with no reason allowed as all of Israel must be returned to the rule of Allah, meaning returned to the Rule of Muslims and never be permitted to continue under Israeli-Jewish rule. But there is a rumbling going on deep inside the Islamic world.

 

After the decline of the Ottoman Empire which outlasted its innate ability to defend its conquests as the military was outstripped by the developments and discoveries the Christian world experienced after the Protestant Reformation, Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, and the entry into the Information Age. Weaponry in Europe proved to be the deciding advantage against the Ottomans from east to west. The Ottoman Empire fell with as much violence and bloodshed with much of it coming from Muslims within their empire who had grown tired of Ottoman rule and desired a change thus allied with the British and the French in overthrowing the Ottoman rulers while the Jewish Brigades (also called the Palestine Brigades though nearly no Arabs served within the ranks which were almost exclusively Jews under British officers) were largely used in keeping order in Alexandria, Egypt but did see some fighting in northern Italian front lines towards the end of World War I. These units officially make up the 38th and 39th Battalions of the Royal Fusiliers of which the former was comprised largely by Zion Mule Corps and a large number of Russian Jews while the latter consisted of all Jews from the United States and Canada. The fact that some of the defeats of Ottoman forces could come at the hands of the Jews was not accepted well and pained the Muslims even more than losing to the European forces which were more modernly armed and whose support was excellent and often is what made the difference. This weakness which brought on such a rapid crushing of the Caliphate which had existed largely in lands won by the first breakout and struck at the heart of Islam.

 

This has led to rumblings and the formation of ever more radical (which means religious) Muslim organizations. The proof of this has been revealed over the few years as we had al-Qaeda, then the Taliban, Boko Haram in Nigeria and now the world is facing the Islamic State and soon a nuclear armed Iran. These Muslims are dedicating themselves to follow the teaching of the Medina Quran over the Mecca Quran thus they are neglecting the moderation of the early Quran in favor of the violence inherent in the latter Quranic verses. We covered the Quran a while ago and have received some positive feedback on our explanations of the two sides to the Quran and the reasoning and changes in Muhammad’s life. Ever since the Muslim Brotherhood blessed the terror groups starting with their joint effort with the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) followed by Hamas which became known as the radicalized terror organization. After a while the Muslim Brotherhood established another group modelled on the same basic principles as was Hamas as religious ties to Islam were found to run deeper and thus prove to be great motivation which far exceeded Arab tribalism. Then from al-Qaeda was spun the Taliban which is very much like Hamas and the finally we now have the Islamic State (ISIS) from which will theoretically be the force which can defeat any state necessary to place their influence over that nation starting with Syria and Iraq. It was theoretically an ISIS terror attack which exploded across the French capital of Paris. If this assault becomes something which occurs somewhere in the middle of any major city in the United States, as they have no stomach for any fight unless it hits home, or with an assault either in one nation or in a number of nations striking out in several cities, then perhaps the world will truly awaken. We are unaware as to what more damaging ISIS might prefer, the taking of people in one city of a single nation, the murder of a number of people cutting a swath across hitting numerous cities or finally striking numerous cities strewn across any number of Western Nations or even other sites such as Asia or MENA as even the monarchies are not safe from such assaults.

 

But all of this, the attack in Paris, the ongoing war against Israel for over sixty-seven years, the Mumbai attack, the Boston Marathon Attack, the World Trade Center Attack, the Bali Attack, the attacks in Kenya including one yesterday, the Fort Hood Terror Strike and the numerous others both grand and small having one common thread, the toppling the government or strangle the economy such that Islam in its most powerful means as people hear such sermons teaching hatred and violence often aimed at the great Satan, the United States, and likely otherwise Israel targets. Time will tell if the Islamic assaults are simply further terrorist killings or part of an organized escalation which will lead to a greater heat from the attacks as they spread their efforts ever further along with the initial seeds to try and impose a Caliphate over the Islamic nations and threaten the rest of the world.

 

Islam has been at war with the world since the fall of the Ottoman Empire which resulted from World War I and their desire to reassert unitary rule over their vast holdings; do not be fooled when something simple may soon follow. The first step towards global hegemony is the finishing of the taking of Iraq and Syria. Until that has been accomplished I would be able to reassess their ability to sell the Islamic war on the same promise made centuries before, to unite or conquer every Islamic nation in MENA and then break down Europe. There is a reason nobody has ever conquered the world, namely there is too much there to take. The final question is what was the first warfare and earliest we had with Muslims. The problem the world faces is whether it might be possible for Islam to conquer the world and impose their law, every part of Sharia, on an unsuspecting world of souls. Some claim the initial attack was the wars with the Barbary Pirates, but are they correct or is it something far more recent and seldom given a single thought; can you name the start of the modern war on the Western World?

The Israeli Political Class Image Problem

 

Before getting to the meat of the article I would like to praise something Israel not only got right, carries it off without any hitches and actually accomplished their objective. The article that put a smile on my face and a song in my heart was Secret operation in Syria to rescue last remaining Jewish family. Their mission was to rescue the last Jewish family in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The one thing Israel does extremely well repeatedly throughout her history starting with being the recipient of the European Jews who largely were expelled penniless and then over the next decade had to receive the Jews from across MENA (Muddle East and North Africa) who were also largely relieved from their wealth as well. There was the raid on Entebbe Airport in Uganda and others throughout the years, some which may eventually be covered in books after those involved feel comfortable and the government also allows information to be released. There was one error made but that was by officials after they reached Israel which will hopefully be remedied successfully and all necessary actions be completed as successfully as this operation. The admission on there uncomforting decision being made immediately public is another credit to Israel for having the openness just as was obvious in our historic record which even revealed the slightest mistakes and flaws in the greatest heroes in the Bible, even Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Moses had their flaws revealed even if they were not necessary to the story and solely for the sake of honest recounting.

 

The idea that there are a noticeable number of our current leaders having flaws in their performances and even some in characters, all of which prevent programs which fully reflect Torah and the rest of our laws, such as not settling all the land Hashem promised which all reflects as believable, just as the greatest Jews in Torah and the Bible were flawed though nowhere near with the rate, consistency and severity as our leaders today. Often Israeli leaders appear to be more concerned with their image out in the rest of the world than in performing their supposed assigned task of representing the people they gave promises in exchange for their votes. What their actions are responsible for is made evident in the video below where an English interviewer constantly jumps to interrupt Naftali Bennett shoving the words from virtually every source possible down Mr. Bennett cherry picking and going through these quotes almost without an actual pause to allow Bennett to speak his mind. It becomes obvious that the interviewer chose Naftali Bennett in order to make the point that Israelis are conflicted and that they have no answers to the accusations from the world at large and there are quotes from throughout the range from Prime Ministers to Shin Bet retired commanders, to Presidents all who have given lip service to the two state solution. The entire ambush was to make the record show that almost every Israeli who has been or is in power has supported the formation of the two state solution and that any Israeli who does not support such is a racist, worthless, genocidal lunatics who have no answers and are incapable of even completing a single cogent response. The fact that the interviewer jumped the microphone almost immediately after Naftali Bennett began to express a thought not permitting his putting thought to word to be completed as doing so would have presented a second opinion but that was not the intent, the intent was to ambush Bennett and short rift any pro-Israel record or argument and simply was to spend the entirety of the ugly interview in order to present quotes and other international demands or voted at the General Assembly as valid arguments which are so obviously valid that any refutation must necessarily be pounced upon and denied access to the airwaves.

 

 

 

 

The interview begs the question of what are the most obvious and pressing problems and fatal challenges which make the two state solution impossible to implement. The easiest fruit is to simply quote Mahmoud Abbas speaking in Geneva to a special session called just to give him a platform to denounce Israel for not relenting the lands they have occupied for the last sixty-seven years. We covered this on November 3, 2015, And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel replete with the necessary math and the realization of the real intentions and ideas which drive Abbas in his quest against all of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas will be credited with having slipped and actually meaning 1967 and not sixty-seven years ago and thus it will be brushed off as Abbas having a senior moment and misspeaking. The reality indicates Mahmoud Abbas finally spoke the truth in a location where he was recorded and the world could finally bear witness to the bald truth, but the world does not want to hear the truth any more than the interviewer would allow the truth to even be stated during a recorded faux-interview we depicted above. Abbas has often made similar remarks, as had Yasser Arafat before him, when speaking to the Arabs in person or via radio or television. This has also been the central argument which began when the two men with the assistance of the KGB formed the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in 1964; a full three years before the Six Day War which should get many people to realize the vacuous line of reasoning that now says that the sole aim is to retrieve the lands lost in the Six Day War which the resonating call heard at all too many protests, especially on campuses across the Western World, where it is often chanted, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be Free!” This slogan leaves no room for Israel and is deadly accurate as to the sole peace Abbas desires to grant Israel, a genocidal cleansing of all of Israel and her Jews declaring such as the second Shoah while threatening to murder the remaining Jews of the world as they join the growing call of the soldiers of Islam to awaken from their slumbers and bring about their blessed age by slaughtering the Jews and all non-Muslims. Their description of these times has the rocks and trees calling to them saying according to Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

 

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

 

That brings us to the root of the problem. There are numerous Israelis who believe that if only Israel would surrender the right combination of lands and would be sufficiently subservient to the Arabs that they would be satisfied and allow the Israelis to live in peace. They believe that should Israelis just act in a particular manner that they would find some happy magic formula which would allow for Jews to live in peace and everybody would live happily ever after. These Jews would also call for the planting of groves of babble trees as they would shelter us from Islamic violence. Never mind that suggestion being defeatist and leading to every Jew needing to plant their own Gharqad, tree or set of such trees. Doing so ignores all the violence which accompanies any sign of Israeli weakness which is launched whenever the Arabs believe they have seen weakness and even the slightest bit of defeatism as they allocate such actions as a lack of resolve by the Jews and simply another reasoning to apply pressure to gain an even larger surrender eventually leading to the complete defeat of the Jews and their desired goal of chasing the Jews from all of what they see as solely their lands. One can trace ever increase in the levels of violence to a defeatist statement which promised simply another surrender in the face of their violence. The status-quo on the Temple Mount is another example of Jews backtracking when faced with Arab insistence or actions which are the initial claims that the lands do not belong to the Jews and we must therefore surrender further lands as we have to be getting close to the magic formula where some form of equilibrium will be reached. Such statements are defeatist on their own formulae as they recommend some willingness for Jews to surrender more of Eretz Yisroel in order to attain a balance which even on its face proves does not exist. One cannot blame the violence on Israeli actions as often the violence follows words which feed the psyche that believes the Jews to be interlopers unworthy of any claim to these Arab conquered lands as all non-Muslims were effectively removed over the millennia and that it is only Arab loss of faith and face that the Jews were permitted because of perceived Arab weakness.

 

The truth be told, there does exist a formula for existential peace with the Arabs which is really not much of peace as it is a surrender. The peace which Israeli leaders appears to have infected their thinking when they achieve high office or recent retirement is that if only all the land were to be surrendered followed by pleading for the Arabs to pretty please allow us even a postage stamp sized piece of land that then all would be well. These masters of surrender never permit themselves or others to realize the basic truth that the Arabs who are dedicated to terrorism and dealing in death will continue to be the basis of Arab education turning out radicalized teachers from the main Arab factions, Hamas and Fatah. The reality is that there is only a slight difference between Fatah and Hamas and of these two there can only be one in the end, and that will be whichever of the two claims proves to unseat the Israeli claims more completely. The Fatah is mostly nationalist and secular while Hamas is Islamist religious based resistance. Eventually Hamas will win the struggle between these two entities for the hearts and minds as their argument is far more persuasive and the stronger of the two attitudes at their base. Furthermore, the religious fanatics are far more committed to their foes defeat and would never have given even a single line of validation through their negotiations. These religious true believers fuel the fanaticism which leads to homicidal suicide bombings and other forms of terror producing mass casualties which have proven in the past to have gained contrition and erosion of the Jewish positions and thus reinforce the religious fanaticism over the nationalist position.

 

The two Arab foes, Hamas and Fatah, have used these models most effectively with the nationalists pressing the idea that one last concession will bring the entirety of the conflict to a close and while this is being debated in the Knesset and then the following of the fanaticism starts entering a series of violent acts which removes any thought of a peaceful turning over of a limited piece of land and having the level of acts to be deescalated. The reality is that timidity only reinforces the Arab feelings that a complete victor is at hand. This cycle of promise offered, snatched away due to violence, the offer now part of status-quo, new demands of even greater amounts of land followed by greater violence escalating as necessary to force Israeli surrenders. There is only one way to end this slow retreat and that is to refuse to retreat any further and start annexing lands enjoined by the one thing which scares the Arabs the most, continue to call for more surrender. It was Jewish willingness to surrender Jewish rights upon the Temple Mount to the point now that Jews are restricted from visiting the Temple Mount in groups larger than at most a dozen Jews. This permits maximum use of the screamers, biters, and other riotous behavior closing down the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitations. These bowings to Islamic supremacy at our most holy of sites has led directly to Arabic prayers being the sole praying permitted thus refusing praise of Hashem and replacing them with praises of Allah on the Temple Mount with any Jew thought to be praying now resulting in their arrest, full investigative hearings and too often closure of the Temple Mount to Jews entering this holy place at all due to Islamic rioting. It is the permitting of such fanaticisms that has placed Israel in the defense world-wide and behind the BDS campaign which could be nipped at its roots if the Jews would react to such limitations by broadening the personal freedoms for Jews and all others at this holiest of holy places and anything else is purely inviting trouble and an eventual Jewish defeat.

 

 

Backsliding will empower Arab demands and encourage Arab violence. Only exercising our rights and exercising our claims to the lands will end the Arab attempts at supremacy within Israel and in forcing the Jews into Dhimmitude which in the end will bring on the death of the Jewish State replacing it totally by an Arab State in which Jews are Dhimmis taking a subservience to Arab Muslims or facing death, neither of which is acceptable. The first and most important step Israel must start with is speaking our known truths and acting upon them at the same time. This must be followed by our annexation of the lands; something the Arabs will understand and bring them to offer actual compromises and not simply a line of demands from the Jews of Israel. These demands are a direct result of timidity and talk of an approaching compromise as nothing ends any hope of an actual settlement faster than negative public opinion which can take a reasoned and proud Zionist and make him appear weak and ineffectual in an interview where he should have insisted he be permitted to talk and not simply be a prop for the reading of a list of ignorant and an unproductive outing where the Zionists again appeared cowed. Our cause would have been better supported had Naftali Bennett demanded to be heard and when shouted down once again and interrupted after two or three words have threatened to end the interview leaving the British moderator without a foil which made his arguments, his blatant anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel stances more believable than had he been left with an empty studio. I realize that Naftali Bennett is a great supporter of Zionism but when you are being so used one must take actions other than polite demanding your time to express your vision and not just sit there and take insulting breaking in on ones answer every time such that the interviewer had more microphone time than did his guest which is always a sad state of affairs. This interview was an even worse showing than the last Republican debate, another instance where the rules were twisted to put on display the brilliance of the moderators rather than investigate the candidate positions. Demanding fair treatment is not rudeness but rather often a response to bullying rudeness. Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the presumed military wing of Abbas’s Fatah, lauded praises upon the terrorists who shot Israelis near Hevron this past Friday. This action was obviously taken to introduce an escalation of the Stabbing Intifada complimented already with bolder throwing at passing vehicles. Now we will be facing shooting including likely sniper fire in Jerusalem from an Arab populated hill into homes of Jews on the next hill with these shots often from a high caliber weapon so as to penetrate walls even going through two or three rooms before lodging in the other outside wall.

 

 

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade has Announced that the Stabbing Intifada is Already Complimented by Bolder Boulder Throwing at Vehicles, Using Vehicles as Battering Rams Into Bus Stops and Light Rail Station. Now There Will be Shooting and Sniper Fire in Jerusalem From Arab Controlled Hill into Jewish Homes on the Neighboring Hill. Additionally the Rioting, Especially the Friday After Prayer at Checkpoints, Will be Accented With Loud, Sharp, and Staccato Retorts of Machine Gun Fire. All This Will Now Endanger Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and even Israelis who are Muslims Without ANY Differentiation at All.

We reported earlier this week in our article How Does Europe Define NGO in Israel and More? where we examined the funding for much of the costs of the ‘Freedom Flotilla III’ being funded largely through a French NGO using funding provided by the government of France. We had mentioned how so many European NGOs are more government agencies than non-governmental agencies and there are even a fair number of Israeli NGOs financed by funds from European nations and the European Union, some directly and some through other go-between NGOs, levels of separation and deniability. The ‘Freedom Flotilla III’ should be reaching Israel after they drum up enough media coverage stopping at port after port all across the southern ports of Europe along the Mediterranean Sea. Some of those on the flotilla are paid instigators which must be rough duty to sail around the Mediterranean between ports watching those chosen to be the most telegenic and sympathetic looking and sounding giving interviews to an eager press giving coverage about the plight their supplies will alleviate. If only that were true. The provisions on former flotillas consisted of spoiled food stuffs and outdated medical provisions which were not even bothered to be picked up after being transferred across the border into Gaza the day after being unloaded at an Israeli port.

 

The one question I have heard that got me to thinking (yes, I actually do think at times) was why Israel would go to such extremes to prevent a flotilla from reaching Gaza if it was known they normally did not carry any contraband such as weapons, explosives or dual use materials? Great question was my reaction and I attempted to point out that once you make one exception and then that blockade is breached, then the entire reason for the blockade can be challenged in the international courts which might lead to the blockade being determined to no longer be required and then Iran and others could ship any and all weapons into Gaza making their next war with Israel far more dangerous. Still, what if Israel began their own news blitz and each time the flotilla spokesperson gives their spiel about the mean Israeli blockade and how they are carrying only humanitarian supplies and still the Israelis are likely to answer their purely good intentions with excessive violence. Of course they will leave out the part about their having specialists who will instigate the confrontation with violent attacks on the Israeli units in attempts to throw them overboard, kidnap one or two and injure or otherwise prevent any diversion of the ship hoping to either get pictures of IDF violence or forcing the final and last ditch measure of sinking one of the vessels. The person who asked why not allow the flotilla pass is a dangerous precedent as this would permit for Israel to be relying that some other nation making a determination that there is no contraband (contraband includes weapons, explosives, certain fertilizers, and numerous dual use items some of which are less obvious than others) aboard replacing Israel actually checking themselves and also the potential for contraband to be transferred at sea after any inspection thus defeating the blockade through simple deceit. Still, there might be a way of prolonging the gamesmanship of this flotilla and use it to Israel’s advantage. Make it known that if the flotilla were to get their cargo inspected by three nations certifying their cargo, any three stops they desire, and add one last inspection made by Egyptian military authorities at the port of Alexandria and then come straight to Gaza once cleared by the Egyptian military, they would be given free escorted entry to Gaza. Israel should then arrange for the Egyptians to escort the flotilla to their maritime border where an Israeli naval vessel to escort and assure that no other transfers are made at sea and then allow them to continue unhindered further to Gaza port. The Israelis should encourage media live television coverage of the arrival and unloading of the flotilla ships if they can spirit up any actual media excitement for such a momentous occasion. Whether there will be live coverage or not, Israel should place a few drones at high enough altitude to make them difficult to see and beyond any possible audible detection with sufficiently capable to televise the unloading live even using night vision technology if the unload is done at night. When the flotilla arrives and Hamas and Islamic Jihad and their other friends refuse to unload the flotilla and simply send them back from whence they came, then the world will see the falsehood of the flotilla racket and hopefully such shame will end the flotilla farce once and for all.

 

I can hear the sceptics with their claims that such bad media won’t prevent the next flotilla as they will simply keep coming and refusing to allow anybody, especially the Egyptians from inspecting their cargos. The main part of the plan is the Egyptian inspection using the Egyptian military overseen by officers picked by President Sisi for their honor and dedication to the new government and the desires of the President and who will do a thorough inspection as they have no love lost for Hamas and friends thus Israel can reliably expect the Egyptians to perform the cargo inspections. The demand for three European nations to perform some kind and unspecified inspection will be to provide evidence should the Egyptians find contraband that the Europeans either missed or intentionally overlooked, then the Europeans will share in any disgrace. This could lead to another manner of checking shipments headed for Gaza but sufficiently onerous demanding three inspections in different nation’s ports and then for the final and most important inspection at Alexandria by the Egyptian military. This may sound like a ponderous set of demands but one must remember that there is another alternative of docking and unloading at an Israeli port and permitting an Israeli inspection and then their delivering your approved goods as quickly as possible by overland in the earliest available trucks as part of the many tens of tractor-trailer loads delivered daily with food, medical and other non-military provisions each day except the Sabbath. Each delivery should be given this choice to every ship intending to make a delivery to Gaza and let them know that after the Egyptian inspection clears their deliveries then they must be escorted to international waters by an Egyptian military vessel which will turn the ship over to Israeli escort to the maritime border of Gaza from which they are on their own. This should be a fair alternative and those who wish to take advantage of such an offer may find some surprises should they also believe that they could get some contraband past the Israelis by using the alternative method. Even the Europeans would be inclined to make an honest inspection should they ever, intentionally or through error or misunderstanding of definitions for contraband, something Israel would be glad to provide a list to any nation requesting such, permit things to pass which they know should be prevented to pass once they have been disgraced when the Egyptians find the contraband and alert the Israelis while confiscating the contraband turning it over to the Israelis when they pass the now inspected cargo without the contraband to continue on to Gaza. There is no reason Israel should be forced to appear brutish when they can offer an alternative to docking in an Israel port so they might be able to take wonderful and generously offered alternative method by which they would be granted full permission to dock at Gaza and even take all the celebratory pictures and videos with their friends in Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the people of Gaza.

 

Israel has no real desire to add to the suffering for the citizens of Gaza. The proof is that the Israelis removed every last Israeli from Gaza on August of 2005 while even took the trouble of exhuming the graves of every Jew and moved them to a new location to keep their graves from being desecrated by any Palestinians desire to act on their vengeful hatreds and bulldozed the synagogue building after removing every last religious items so as to prevent its desecration. Then all of Gaza, every last millimeter was given to the Arab Palestinian Authority who lost their control over Gaza in the Fatah and Hamas with Islamic Jihad in the civil war for the control of Gaza which had been building in intensity but exploded into its final violence filled conflagration from June 10, 2007 to June 15, 2007 setting up the situation of steady rising of violence out of Gaza largely firing rockets on Israel targeting almost exclusively Israeli civilians and other provocations. Now Israel has all of that to thank for the flotillas testing their resolve but perhaps the time has come to use brains over brawn, intelligence as resolve and finally using the flotilla be the ones choosing which venue they prefer. If they choose to force a confrontation with Israel rather than receive merely four inspections with three from potentially friendly European co-conspirators plus an inspection from the Arab state of Egypt and after passing these small requirements then they preferred to force a confrontation, not Israel. By forcing Israel to divert them to an Israeli port instead of, what Israel in their magnanimity had offered to the flotilla coordinators, financiers, political activists and other members and crews, to have inspections at three of their European ports of call plus have them make their next to the last port call in Alexandria for an Egyptian Military run inspection permitting them to achieve direct access to the Port in Gaza. The monies of their arrival at the Gaza City port should prove interesting as will any unloading of goods from flotilla ships which have little or no cargo. The light of truth can be a wonderful light to use to reveal the reality of such farcical attempts to put the IDF, and in turn all Israel, in the worst light possible and refusing to circumvent the unfair Israeli inspections and instead take an alternative method of inspection where the first three are of their choice and one of Israeli origin. Simply offer an alternative and then allow nature and absurdity take their selected path.
