A Rant from One Joyous Jew in Israel

 

Back in my youth I would get rolling eyes, good and hearty laughs, challenges to my sincerity and general disbelief when I told my Jewish and other friends that one day I would retire in Israel. Well, not only did I make good on my words, I found an affordable place five blocks from the Mediterranean Sea in Nahariya in northwestern Israel and the western end of the Galilee. One of my friends from before grade school through high school visited my parents and asked as to my whereabouts as most of my high school graduating class scattered to all corners of every state in the nation almost all losing touch except for rare crossings in our travels. When my parents informed him that I had moved to Israel, their quote of his reaction was interesting. They told me he laughed while getting out the words of disbelief stating, “My G0d, he actually did it. He had told us back in grade school and on that he would retire in Israel and he actually went and did it.” Similar reactions have been stated by people who throughout my life were told my intention. I was raised as a reform Jew in a liberal area just outside of Washington D.C. in a neighborhood which it turned out would fall just inside the Capital Beltway. Yes, we lived as part of the inside the Beltway crowd but not until we were fourteen and the roadway was opened. I was actually at the opening just across the county line over in Prince Georges County and made the cover of the Washington Star but somehow the Washington Post used a picture which I managed to miss. I tell people this because they knew I would eventually become a conservative Constitutionalist and a Zionist when it came to Israel. None of my friends, to the best of my knowledge, did more than maybe visit Israel for a short vacation or funded trip made possible by one of the many organizations which sponsor such trips in hopes that they will spark good responses. Unfortunately many of these planned trips are hijacked by post-Zionists which would be better described as anti-Zionist and some even pro-Palestinian Arab. At some point some of these visitors are told by guides that Israeli Jews could live in an Israel as a minority under Muslim rule. They use this introduction to claim that millions of Arabs claiming to be refugees or their progeny and thus entitled to live within Israel would cause little if any problems. They ignore that these refugees are raised such that their entire existence is for the destruction of Israel through population inundation. Allowing for a Muslim majority in Israel would force the Jews to leave, or if not that, then remove the Jews using some other means of final solution.

 

There are things which are presumably not permitted be stated when discussing Israel Arab conflict. The biggest lie is that the Israel Arab conflict is between the Israeli Goliath against the Arab Palestinian David ignoring the fact that as many as twenty Arab governments and numerous other Muslim governments all demand that the Jewish State be returned in its entirety to Islamic rule and all the Jews made to perish and that is the reality which must never be spoken. The truth of this conflict is easily understood when looking at a map of the nations whose populations predominantly desire the eradication of Israel (see map below). This includes even Egypt, which recognized Israel when making peace under the brave guidance of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat who signed a peace with Menachem Begin, the Israeli Prime Minister, in 1979 and President Sadat then paid with his life as he was assassinated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood using their members from a military unit during a parade on October 6, 1981 as reported by the New York Times. The population of Egypt by over four to one favors Egypt breaking the treaty and attacking and destroying Israel. As far as the Egyptian population has ever heard in reports and been taught in their schools, the Egyptian military has defeated Israel in each of the three wars, 1956, 1967 and 1973, despite the reality being the opposite. Those who fought in these wars and know the reality are forbidden from speaking of these defeats under threat of death.

There are many other truths which shall never be mentioned. The truth is that the leadership of the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) have rejected the two state solution and will only accept a single Muslim Arab state completely devoid of any Jews. There is no difference between the desired end between the PLO, Fatah, the PA, Islamic Jihad and Hamas. The various terrorist groups (the ones listed in the last sentence and more) are supported by the Muslim Brotherhood (the same parent group for al-Qaeda), Saudi Arabia, Iran and other radical groups both Sunni and Shiite. The monies donated by the United Nations, UNRWA, the European Union, various European governments, the United States and near countless NGOs are often diverted to terrorist usage including purchasing explosives, bomb and rocket making systems and supplies, tunnels, and payments well above the average wage for terrorists in Israeli prisons, the families of terrorists who died such as suicide bombers and others who continued attacking until killed in the commission of their attack with these salaries commensurate with the numbers of Israelis they murdered. The PA headed by Mahmoud Abbas and internationally reputed to be Israel’s best hope for peace and the greatest hope for establishing a two state solution has approved and even attended official events naming schools, roads, parks, playgrounds and other public institutions and landmarks after terrorists who are revered and proposed as the pinnacle of Arab society and the best possible people for the youth to emulate and strive to be their equals in the dealing of death to Israelis. When touting murdering Israelis there is often additional mention of murdering Jews and it is made evident that these Jews intended to include all Jews anywhere in the world. Should one take one hour a week in two or three short periods watching translations of PA spokespeople, leadership and the politicians on any of the following web addresses; CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), PMW (Palestinian Media Watch)and a whole new world will be revealed and in their own words and calls to action. These sights are all reputable translation services which are run by NGOs who take pride in their work and present as honest a translation as they are able as to do otherwise would have had them revealed as untrustworthy in all the media which would love to be able to silence their reporting.

 

Most of us already have realized we are being fed propaganda by the mainstream media; even on the so-called honest reporting in Fox the entirety of the truth is withheld as to be that forthright would cause them more trouble than their reputation is worth. It would be difficult to report news if you were spending half your manpower on facing court cases for wrongful reporting and emotional damage due to false reporting brought by adversaries desiring to prevent certain facts from reaching the public. Thankfully, and due to the bloggers, the truth of the vote against having belief in G0d as well as Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel being rejected by the floor when it was attempted to add it to the party platform back in 2012 was reported by C-SPAN with some coverage but not wall-to-wall 24/7 as they would have done if the Republican Convention would have been reported. There is even a You Tube video of the procedure which is rather amusing in a strange sort of way (see below). You cannot make these things up, honest. It would be difficult to tell but Hillary Clinton has told some tall tales, which if attempted to change position similarly by Trump has gotten nightly coverage. One prime example was when speaking to coal miners where Hillary told them she was ready to put them back to work despite her speech a few years ago about how she was going to put coal out of business when speaking to an eco-conference. I know, that’s just politics. Remember that the next time they ridicule Trump for making contradictory statements or do you believe that when Trump does it that just proves his dishonesty or simply his being mentally challenged. The media has taken a side in the American elections and they have also taken a side against Israel in their reporting except they couch it by granting the Palestinian side complete forgiveness in all things and never reveal their lies and other prevarications. Some examples of truths you have never heard? Read on.

 

The actual lands which belong to Israel for the homeland of the Jews includes the Negev Desert, the Galilee, Judea, Samaria and all the rest of the lands between the Jordan Valley and the Mediterranean Sea including the Jordan Valley. That is a trick statement because it actually equals all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. This was decided at the San Remo Conference, further validated by a unanimous vote by the League of Nations, was stipulated in the British Mandate, and included in a number of treaties which included validation of the San Remo Conference within the documents after World War I, included specifically in the Treaty of Sèvres and finally was validated by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Simply put, International Law supports Israeli ownership of the land and they can do as they please with some basic reservations. They must provide all non-Jews with religious freedom, freedom of property, freedom of association and other basic freedoms with one very important exception; they do not need to grant anyone other than Jews with political rights. This means they do not have to give the Arabs the right to vote in Israeli elections or even local election if they so choose. This is a very important technicality as it completely erases the claim that the Arabs can take over Israel democratically by reproducing and simply out populating the Jews and vote them out of Israel one way or the other. Israel has the right to allow the Arabs in the PA areas total freedom in every way with the exception of the vote and other political rights according to international law, period. The principle wording of the San Remo Convention states, “British Government, and adopted by the other Allied Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” The political status for the Jews in other countries were not altered as instead over the ensuing two decades after the founding of Israel the vast majority of Arab nations which had Jewish communities ejected them after taking virtually all their precious possessions and their savings. Once they were evicted from the home nations, many of their families had resided in for centuries if not thousands of years, most made their way to Israel as if they had no relatives residing in Europe or the United States, they were denied entry and only Israel offered them a welcoming homeland. Israel could and should annex legally and officially the remainder of lands, reclaim Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and grant their Arab citizens resident alien status and even be beneficent and allow them voting rights within Area A and B where the PA currently has control and allow them to reside where they please; but if they leave the PA semiautonomous region, they would lose all voting rights. Their elections would be monitored and arranged by Israel and would welcome any and all foreign observers so as to assure these elections were not mismanaged. This would be legal under every manner of international law and the granting of semiautonomous region where the Arabs would have voting rights is a measure of magnanimity by Israel. We have presented this before but it bears repeating as often as necessary as currently there are some very dangerous ideas floating around even within the Israeli government and even from the high command of the IDF. We have covered some of these subjects over the last days. Perhaps this would be a good place to stop just in case any would like to scroll down or visit any of these articles; End the Charade and Keep Your Promises, It is Time to End the Arab Occupation, As Long as They All Hate. The urgency of the situation is drawn from the fear and soon to be fact, within a generation or two at the most, the world of nations will spit out their Jews and then attempt to eradicate Israel from the maps and history.

Western World Dying of Love Generation Consequences

 

Western societies’ great experiment into free love and if it feels good do it will die of their corollary, love free of responsibility. That is love free of entanglements, love free of responsibilities, love free of children and love leading to no future. The free love generation which started with the baby boomers and though it altered its likes, it never really gave up on the main point; it is about the I, the me, what I want, what it does for me, where I want to, when I want to, it’s all my and mine and all without responsibility and without any downers, a bummer free life and anything getting in the way must be discarded, relationships, jobs, anything and maybe everything including babies as life must continue hassle free without any potholes. That is the problem because it is also all about now with no concern for the future because all the future has to be is trouble free. This has led to the lowest marriage rate in Western history. This led to a whole new way of employer-employee relations such that even the rules changed that there was even a new rule, a new law that certain recognized conditions are no longer reasons for termination. The most outlandish of these new conditions was if an employee was late to work more than three times each week then that employee has a disability which is defined as chronic time disability which was the act of not being able to keep a schedule and thus often being late for appointments including for work. The law was the Americans with Disability Act which basically if one could find a physician to write up that you had some chronic quirk which was beyond your ability to control, then you now were disabled and an employer had to make allowances for your disability. Granted, that liberal interpretation was eventually narrowed but the damage had been done and employment was now more of a loose agreement which was often in constant flux between employers and employees. Granted that in most cases the employer still held the upper hand but if one was willing to push it the employer often figured that it would be less trouble to simply accommodate the employee and try to make the best of it. Just the last straw in the hassle free lifestyle which had become the new normal, heck, even dress codes went the way of the rotary phone.

 

The greatest disability that has permeated the new society which the Western World had accepted has been that the future will take care of itself and we have no obligation to fashion or sacrifice to make a better future because our lives are defined in the now and leave the future to tomorrow. Of course Western society does not exactly admit their careless treatment of the future though they do enjoy their carefree lifestyles and claim that this is the way things should be and everything will work out. Well, after all the future has always worked out up to now and our parents didn’t seem to be all that different. Well, sure, they were usually more serious but they always said that our happiness was the most important thing and why they did everything they did. That’s what we are doing, everything is for our happiness because that is the most important thing on earth, our parents drilled that into us from before since we could remember.

 

It is obvious that not everyone born after around the middle of the last century is living totally in the now with no regard for tomorrow, but the end results of current Western society and culture is having exactly that effect. Couples both have high stress careers and put off starting a family and time slips away leading to them simply never getting around to having that family. Others simply figure they will get around to marriage and everything which goes with it and end up with the same result. Then there are the frightening abortion figures where in some communities the number of aborted pregnancies far outnumbers the pregnancies which go full term. Since Roe vs. Wade was decided and abortion became legally and socially acceptable in 1973, abortions have reached approximately sixty-thousand in the United States alone. Worldwide pregnancies resulting in an abortion since 1980 are approaching one and a half billion.

Percentage of Pregnancies Resulting In Abortions Across Europe

Percentage of Pregnancies Resulting
In Abortions Across Europe

 

Europe, as can be noted above, has a real problem as their birthrates for most nations has fallen below replacement levels which is a large part of why they are allowing increasing immigration from wherever they can find them. There will be reports to try and belay the concerns claiming that the number of abortions has been decreasing in recent years, which is true. What they will not report is the percentage of pregnancies ending in an abortion have remained at a steady thirty to thirty-five percent and part of the reason for the lower numbers is due to less women of childbearing age. In America the reason that the replacement level is being met is twofold, first is the higher percentage of non-European ancestral origins with a growing Hispanic community and a higher percentage of religious population which has also been growing and are anti-abortion and having larger families. The end result of the higher abortion levels and also much higher use of preventive measure such as birth control pills and other measures has resulted in a dropping population level amongst European Caucasians with some predicting a dire future where the numbers may reach a level where their influence politically will dwindle and become inconsequential. This will become very evident in Europe as the continent will slowly but inexorably become Islamic as the refugees continue to pour into the continent. Perhaps the reasoning by the European Union for their expansion into the Middle East and Northern Africa is not to subsume and take control of these areas as much as they are surrendering to them and seeking the best terms as the writing is on the wall. Europe is joining the Middle East and North African society. However one looks at the article we recently posted about the European Union planning on entering and merging the Middle East and North Africa and possibly somewhat further into central Asia and central Africa as they see an expansive Islam on the rise and are simply surrendering to what they see as unavoidable. The move by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to offer for Germany to accept 800,000 Syrian refugees which started the flood of Middle Eastern and North African refugees, both escaping warfare or economic difficulties, entering Europe was a tactical move to make transitions to join the Islamic realm of influence easier and make it so fast that the native population will be unable to prevent the surrender, and that is what is occurring, a surrender. The Brexit vote may save Britain from such a fate and once again the world may see a British holdout against threats from a fascist and threatening European Continent. Some in Britain may be groaning “not again” in the not too distant future and once again holding the line until the United States awakens to a dire situation where some disaster brings them rapidly into the worsening situation.

 

Some have looked at the abortion and the live for the moment and the future will take care of itself attitude in Western civilization and wondered and worried where it might lead. Many are starting to realize that things have gotten out of hand and may soon turn beyond any reason to control their future. It is somewhat more dire in Europe as their influx is almost completely Islamic while in the United States their influx is from south of the border which is largely Hispanic and Catholic or Christian and thus compatible with the United States Judeo-Christian history and ethics. The future of Europe, Britain and the United States will all be determined within the next twenty-five to fifty years and perhaps even sooner in the case of Europe. The slide from a functional culture to a faltering crisis started soon after World War II when after two world wars within a quarter of a century the Europeans tired of fighting for anything that they are largely exhausted and primed to surrender, or at least their political class appears ready to hand the keys to a new culture believing as multiculturalists that there really is not much difference between one culture and the next. They will soon realize how completely erroneous and empty that belief truly is. The highest turn out for any vote in the history of the British Isles has definitively proven in the end the British population, by a slim margin, wanted their nation back. Meanwhile, many will watch with their own measure of horror or sickness as Europe’s Judeo-Christian Culture faces a crisis as it is subsumed and then extinguished by Islam revealing to the remainder of the world exactly the true face of Islam. May those who desire to retain their culture awaken in time to make their way to safety before it is too late. The last time the continent fell into the darkness of Hitler’s Nazis and their anti-Judeo-Christian ethos and culture of death too many waited far too long and the world came to witness what horrors mankind can afflict their fellow human beings. May the world not permit a similar darkness to envelop and destroy a civilian population once again. Sometimes one looks at the leadership of their company or citizens’ committee or even their political class and cannot fathom what they are thinking knowing their ideas will lead only to ruin but remain silent believing others will make things right. May such not be the coming fate in the continent of Europe.

And France Doubles Down

 

Right on the heels of the disastrous French initiative taking confab of twenty plus Foreign Ministers last week where they could not even join together to condemn Israel, let alone demand Israel commit some form of concessions once again to restart the moribund peace process, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault now had the audacity to lecture Israel about the extra security measures taken after the deadly Tel Aviv terror shooting. His claim was by cancelling the work and other passage permissions for the extended family of the terrorists and the cancellation of the Ramadan liberal permissions in response to the attack which murdered four and wounded a score more was simply collective punishment and would lead to more terror and exacerbate an already difficult situation. You can read about and see videos and pictures of the actual assault and aftermath in our article on the terror attack and other related events Look Back and Forward to Coming Incitements for War. The steps Israel took were the same basic types as any sane and rational government would take facing the same situation. The terrorists were cousins from a family which already has a terror history of radicalization with an Uncle of both young men still serving in an Israeli prison for terrorist assault he took part in previously. Israel went so far as to freeze work entry visas for some 204 members of the attackers’ extended family. Israel went further and rescinded approximately eighty-three-thousand general entry permits given to Arabs from Judea and Samaria for Ramadan without running security checks on the vast majority. To run individual checks on this many people would take far longer than the Ramadan holiday and cancellation was a safety precaution, not a punishment. Goodwill gestures to Gaza Arabs, including travel permits to Jerusalem to participate in Ramadan prayers on the Temple Mount, were also rescinded, especially after the reaction of the Hamas government and their sister terror organization Islamic Jihad support for the terror attack and threat that more of the same was imminent. To the French Foreign Minister such actions were overreacting like the French are all of a sudden security experts on how to prevent terrorist attacks. Let’s look at the recent record, oh, yes; Paris just had a slight problem in this area, didn’t they. The reasoning behind the French reaction against Israel’s steps in the aftermath of this horrific attack was blame the victim, side with the terrorists and maybe, just maybe the terrorists will think the French are so wonderful they will not strike there ever again. Talk about throwing everybody else to the alligators so that they will be eaten last thinking which has such a great track record when it comes to terrorism.

 

Adding to the preposterousness of French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault hyperventilating over Israeli security measures was the location from where it came. He was in the United Nations to take part in a Security Council debate on the protection of civilians in peacekeeping. Talking about the United Nations, on Friday the United Nations Human Rights Chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein spoke along with the rest of his office to express how so “deeply concerned” by Israel’s response they were while only offering a mild condemnation of the actual terror attack itself or concern for the families of the slain or for a recovery of the injured. These were not the exception but when the terrorist attack was condemned in equivocating terms, it was more often than not followed immediately with stronger terms denouncing Israeli actions as horrid overreactions and in the wording of the office of Mr. al-Hussein, “includes measures that may amount to prohibited collective punishment and will only increase the sense of injustice and frustration felt by Palestinians in this very tense time.”

 

Meanwhile the French Foreign Weasel, we mean Foreign Minister, did we really say Weasel? Anyway, the foreign minister further stated, “There must be a political initiative from the international community to create conditions conducive to appeasement and a return to negotiations,” according to AFP. France is always working for the security of Israel.” Really now, and were not you the leading figure right next to French President François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande calling for a ministerial meeting last week in Paris to discuss what concessions Israel could take to prove their honest desires for peace on top of near countless previous concessions to do the exact same desire for peace? Did not your office recently threaten Israel with recognizing an Arab State called Palestine and setting their borders unilaterally as if the French ran the world? Are you not that same French Foreign Minister head whose office is working furiously with other parts of the French government to find some way of punishing Israel in order for President François Hollande can show he is on top of taking steps to prevent further terror attacks like the one recently in Paris and before that two others including the Charlie Hebdo murders where Israeli Prime Minister flew to Paris to state himself in French, “Je suis Charlie” and march with the other dignitaries? Oh, I remember, he was placed a number of rows back while Mahmoud Abbas was given front and center of the processions for the pictures and there were articles claiming that the Israeli Prime Minister was a news hound just trying to get himself into the picture like the pushy petty Jew that he was, that was the reaction expressed out of Paris after the picture below was released. Who again was being given the glory hound position and why was he smiling after a dozen people and more were just murdered in Paris and all others had their serious faces on as was appropriate; that clown Abbas was doing one of the only two things he knows how to do, condemn Israel and smile like a jackal when before cameras even at a remembrance for terrorist victims murdered in the name of Islam.

The two-facedness of your condemnation immediately after siding with the terrorists and attempting to give them a state taken out of the gut of Israel from which to paralyze Israeli industry and threaten directly seventy percent of her population, you then turn around and condemn Israel for reacting to terrorists who came from that very same area you meant to make a terrorist state from. They came from a small town just outside Hevron, a small town which could not help but celebrate their little warriors with fireworks and candies as two of their own gunned down four unarmed civilians at a market and when encountering Israeli security forces who were armed, they dropped their weapons and attempted to act as victims themselves. The one shot while escaping was shot in such a manner as to prevent his escape but not to kill, a form of shooting to arrest rather than center of body mass which requires the security personnel in Israel to take additional training to master such a difficult task. In one of the videos at our aforementioned article you can witness the Israeli security personnel shooting the suspect three or four times and the resulting generally non-life-threatening wounds placed him at the same hospital being treated by the same Israeli physicians as were the victims of he and his cousin’s terror spree where they opened fire in a crowded market full of unarmed people in Tel Aviv one nice evening, well, it was nice until those two jackals, and we apologize for insulting jackals everywhere, opened fire and then immediately threw their weapons down, one of them after one of the market patrons kicked his gun from his grasp breaking it making it unusable, and attempted the innocent victim routine as they knew that police and Israeli armed security personnel would soon arrive and they were not prepared to take on anyone who would be capable of shooting back. Then they ran and we are waiting for the first complaint that the Israeli security personnel shot an unarmed terrorist making him a victim of Israeli brutalism. The vermin, again, vermin, we mean no disparaging but the words for these terror swine, now we need apologize to swine, was running from the scene and it was entirely likely he was still armed thus shooting rather than take further chances with loss of innocent lives warranted his actions. Let us state further that this security personnel came running towards the sounds of gunfire, not away or hiding in place but running towards a situation more than likely which would place them in danger themselves, a rare breed amongst humankind and we have numerous just like them here in Israel and we are thankful for every last one of these brave and selfless individuals. As far as for the French Foreign Minister and President attempting to raise their standing with the French people on the backs and lives of the Israeli people, we remember the case of Alfred Dreyfus and can plainly see that the French leadership has not moved all that far from their pedigree of that day. Let us conclude, “Nous sommes Dreyfus” and in his memory, that of French perfidy then and now.
