Beyond the Cusp

Time to Claim that which Belongs to the Israelites

 

There is a strange thing which happens to people should they read the Old Testament with special attention initially to the first six books, the Five Books of Moses, or Torah, the scroll which is read from in Synagogues the world over during Saturday morning services and other days and holidays, and the first book of the remainder of the Jewish Bible, Joshua, sometimes thought of as the Sixth Book of Moses as the style of writing is so similar to those of Torah. Reading about the Prophets, Judges, Kings, Psalms and Proverbs, there are names of places. The realizations go even deeper should one study these writings and reference a map of ancient Israel so that the names of the locations can be located. Some of the places have identical names today and some have been changed, often to disguise their Israelite (Jewish) history and heritage. Temple Mount, Jerusalem, Hevron, Shechem, Jericho, Beersheba, all the precious tombs and the lands in which they lived, sanctuary cities and all are written about. One will read of the Tribes of Israel (see map below) which settles on both, yes, both sides of the Jordan River. The tribes northern border was the Litani River which lies in the center of modern Lebanon and was presumably the demarcation south of which the United Nations promised to prevent Hezballah from setting up as part of the peace agreement of the last Lebanon conflict. Promises to Israel appear to be the least kept of words between men as time and again any rumbling or threats from terrorists and the world runs frightened leaving Israel to face these threats without any trust in worldly promises. Yet, for reasons beyond all reason and logic, the Israeli government will always trust the promises of the world time and again despite every broken promise of the past; always ready to believe this time it will be different, despite all evidence to the contrary. Perhaps it is a character fault of trusting and believing in the best of people and nations despite all evidence to the contrary.

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

 

The problem is Israel has a history of trusting in the fairness and asking for the approval and constantly waiting for such approvals. It started long before Israel became a nation. We can start a short distance and work back. It was November 29, 1947 with the vote in the United Nations which suggested that when any nation would be made between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, it be divided between and Arab and a Jewish nation. This plan was made by the General Assembly which meant that should either side refuse the resolution the entirety was null and void. The Arab League immediately refused the resolution ending the patrician plan thus allowing for Israel to be established on all the land. When the fateful day arrived on My 15, 1948, the entirety of six Arab armies invaded at the break of dawn, or soon thereafter, and attempted to extinguish the nascent state and murder every Jew in a genocidal massacre. They failed in this endeavor but did manage to occupy Gaza and much of Judea and Samaria, which Jordan renamed West Bank to erase its Jewish root names, and held these lands illegally for the next nineteen years until the June 1967 Six Day War when Israel liberated these lands. But even this vote by the United Nations was far from the beginning, so let us proceed back further.

Right after World War I ended there was a move in Europe to return the lands to the original indigenous peoples where such existed. This was what led to the British making the Balfour Declaration in 1917 which promised that the British would take it upon themselves to establish a Jewish homeland in the Middle East in the lands which had been ancient Israel. At the San Remo Conference the Allied powers met and drafted a paper in which they guaranteed and formalized their aims to establish a Jewish state and drafted the Balfour Declaration completely intact in a paper referred to by the name of that conference, the San Remo Conference. This paper was signed by all the Allied States other than the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, Russia and Japan. In the Treaty of Sèvres, signed on August 10, 1920, which formalized the San Remo Conference and also established the Mandate Systems which establish the British Mandate as well as the entire set of Mandates from which the Sykes-Picot Treaty, set up the remainder of the Middle East and North Africa countries which were to be martialed initially by the European Allies and Russia until self-government could be established. The British Mandate was meant to establish the Jewish State but as the British had promised the Hashemite Dynasty a nation; so they met with the Zionist Congress and petitioned them to accept a state solely on the west of the Jordan River while surrendering their claims to any lands east of the Jordan River so that the British could establish an Arab State for Palestinian Arabs under the Hashemite Dynasty setting the Hashemites as the monarchy leaving the western parts to be used for the Arab State (see map above). The Zionist Congress, feeling powerless and desiring to not anger the British who were one of the most powerful of nations at that time, agreed to accept a severely truncated Israel. Transjordan, later to become Jordan, was finally established formally in 1946, two years ahead of Israel. But it goes back even further.

 

The history of the Jews and Israel, since the conquest by the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great and then the Roman Empire and the two banishments after temporarily successful wars throwing off Roman rule briefly only to fall to Roman legions sent to teach the upstart Judeans (Jews) a lesson that Rome would not tolerate such revolts, has been a series of pogroms, murderous riots, banishments, cleansings and finally the Shoah, the Holocaust. The fact that this happened twice was proof that they deserved the Biblical description of being a stiff necked people. Unfortunately, these were pretty much the last times the Jews were truly a stiff necked people and instead became, over the intervening approximately twenty centuries, Jews having anything but stiff necks by any stretch of the imagination. If anything, they have proven to be amongst the most malleable of all peoples. They left nations at a simple behest leaving their businesses and often properties and wealth behind, and kept to their own portions of cities, often a Jewish ghetto. They feared the Church, Mosque, Priests, Imams, Kings, Queens, Caliphs, Barons, Emperors, Czars, Kaisers, Mahārājas, Padishahs, Rajas and all other titled and authorities constantly fearing pogroms, cleansings, inquisitions, purifications, jihads and any edict which might make them targets. What was sad is that had the majority of Jews worldwide ever chosen to return to their ancient homelands they might have been capable of turning realities into independence or at the least making of their homelands a partitioned semiautonomous region where they could have lived in relative peace. All it would have taken would have been faith in Hashem and their own worth, but instead the Jews continued to live at the tolerance and best intentions of others. Such has been the history and thus is the current leadership.

 

There is a question which is approaching by one means or another as the Arabs are restless and angered by their leadership under the Palestinian Authority and a sizeable majority are ready to elect Hamas into leadership across their towns, cities and other local governance. The majority of Palestinian Arabs reside in areas where they elect their local leaders and in what is misnamed the West Bank, they reside in an autonomous region where they elect their leaders. Their last election for President was held in 2005 where Mahmoud Abbas was elected. Since then he has feared standing for reelection and thus has found reason after reason to cancel elections. The real reason is he is afraid of losing power and being replaced by Hamas. This might lead to his being charged for corruption and theft of funds and standing trial under Hamas judges who would have him killed just as soon as they were sure they had found every dollar and Euro he has stolen and stashed in Swiss and other banks. Whatever such a future might hold, Abbas will do all he is able to avoid finding out what exactly would happen. Still, Israel needs to be prepared for a Hamas takeover by one means or another in the near future. Should Hamas take control of Judea and Samaria, Israel will be forced to confront a situation where Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion International Airport and the heart of Israel surrounding these areas and reaching as far north as Netanya would rapidly become uninhabitable due to rocket attacks carried out by Hamas as soon as they would be capable of building or importing even the most rudimentary of rockets (see map below). Such a situation would be untenable at best and an unimaginable disaster should such a situation arise. With Hamas ruling the majority of the localities and potentially, should Abbas allow elections to be held at any time, running the entire show; Israel would need to come to a decision immediately and set forth a strong and unambiguous situational criteria. Israel would have to rule that a single rocket fired from the Arab areas within Judea and Samaria landing anywhere within any areas within the Green Line or any of the neighborhoods outside of Arab autonomous regions that Israel would immediately claim and annex all the lands other than Gaza between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and all Arabs within the autonomous regions would be pushed outside of the State of Israel and its true borders under International Law. Simple statement and placing the IDF on alert should provide the reality check required as proof of the real intentions. Unfortunately, such a declaration would not likely be coming as the government would be worried over what the Americans might say or even think, what the Europeans and European Union would say, what Russia, China and anybody else might believe of them, especially if it was unkind, and finally they would be overly concerned what the Arab and Muslim world would do and react to their displacing even a single Arab from their home. Simply stated, they would need to sample every nation, international body, the United Nations, European Union, and possibly see what Viking rune stones might say in predicting the Scandinavian nations’ reactions. Unfortunately, the map says it all.

The time is rapidly approaching when Israel will be facing a choice, take all the land which is legally ours and grant the Arabs fair market share for their properties, except for those in governance as they have stolen sufficient to provide for themselves for a long period, and place them and the prisoners outside Israeli borders. This may require military force just as was used to destroy Jewish communities in Gaza and areas of Judea and Samaria to please United States President George W. Bush, his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the State Department and every other soul on the planet who supported the Gaza sacrifice which turned so disastrous that one hopes at least one lesson may have been learned. If the IDF can be utilized to beat down Jews and destroy their neighborhoods, livelihoods, businesses, communities and all else which had any real, intrinsic or emotional value, then Israel should sure as anything be capable of using at least similar force in extending the borders to their Internationally Legal limits along the Jordan River and making these lands safe for all Israelis of all religions. Families who have been completely free of any ties to terror and desire to remain as legal alien residents and obey Israeli laws and be aware that should any member of their family commit or support any terrorist activity, they will lose everything faster than they can protest the actions and be sent beyond the border without any remunerations for lost property et al. The world is steadily accelerating in their embracing of anti-Semitism and this has been steadily made evident by the adoptions of the BDS movement and the number of governments who refuse to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the true Israeli Capital City. No other nation is made to suffer the refusal of the world to accept their declaration of a Capital City other than Israel and Jerusalem. We recognize that the constant and incessant griping, sniping, threatening, and badgering of government officials by Arab Palestinian proponents sooner or later wear down many a government official which eventually snowballs into accepting their demand if only to have some quiet as the Jews won’t complain, they’re civil and meek like good Jews. Perhaps it is time to place some Israelites into the highest positions in our political establishment and finally stand up for ourselves and tell the world it is our turn to set some rules. Do we need to actually state these rules? We hope not as all Israel should demand and actuate upon are the exact things promised us since 1917, the lands of our ancestors, all of them. Read our history, read our Torah and Joshua and the rest of our Bible and become educated. We could demand what is actually Greater Israel which is defined as the lands taken at the height of Israelite power under King David and King Solomon (see map below). There is a lot to be stated about this area.

 

Eretz Yisroel as formed after the conquests by the Kingdoms of King David and King Solomon; both of whom allowed the Principalities of Edom, Moab and Ammon to be semi-autonomous as long as they and their armies supported Eretz Yisroel

We never did quite make it from the Euphrates to the Nile, but we did reach the Euphrates. Further, were Israel granted these lands, then there would be little left of the Syria Civil War as Israel would be dividing the warring parties and should the Islamic State insist on striking Israel, there would no longer be any need for any world hand wringing as all that would need be done would become done. Israel has attempted to please the world and the world cannot be pleased. Israel has attempted to live by the world’s rules but those rules claim that Israel never be permitted to win. Even when we have won and liberated our own lands the world demands we give away those very lands after we already returned an area of land which vastly outsizes our actual borders under International Law. We are talking of the Sinai Peninsula and our sitting on the eastern banks of the Suez Canal. The time for deference is rapidly coming to a close if it has not already come and gone and Israeli leaders are simply being too timid. Excess of timidity is as much as sin as being overly boastful. Perhaps the time is now to declare our annexation of all that is ours and allow the chips to fall where they may. We surrendered Gaza and got a fanatical den of annihilative monsters desiring our death over their own lives and the world did not budge from their demands that Israel and her people commit suicide. Israelis have had enough with the demands that Israel surrender to every tin pot demanding their pound of flesh. We are done with it or honestly should be. The Israeli leaders may still bend over backwards, but the people have reached the end of their rope and the politicians had best heed the growing growling as that growl is meant for them if they do not point it in a healthier direction. When even one of the major parties in the United States removes backing for the Two State Solution and in turn the Oslo Accords from their platform, it is time that Israel take that dead issue off our table as well. Now is the time and not waiting for Hamas to become further entrenched in Judea and Samaria and join the Islamic State bringing that misery to our doorsteps. It will be best to end all misery before it multiplies tenfold and that means now. Time is here for a new breed of leadership, one that will fight for the people and end the Oslo Charade which leads only to self-annihilation because suicide is not a viable solution.

A Zionist Begs to Differ

 

Reading an Arutz Sheva Editorial by Dr. Martin Sherman titled, INTO THE FRAY: Like manna from heaven – for Israel’s detractors we would like to copy any number of quotes from the start and recommend the remainder of the editorial to our readers as well as respond ourselves.

Former Prime Minister and former Defense Minister, Ehud Barak stated on Channel 10 program from May 20, 2016 stated, “Israel has been infected by the seeds of fascism …There are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government.”
Head of opposition, Yitzhak Herzog, Knesset, May 23, 2016, proclaimed, “Today we have a country afflicted with ultra-nationalistic extremism, infected with the seeds of fascism and chauvinism.”
Nabil al-Arabi Secretary-General of the Arab League, Cairo May 28, 2016, observed, “Israel has truly become today the last bastion of fascism, colonialism and racial discrimination in the world.”
Former defense minister Moshe “Bogie” Yaalon, Resignation speech, May 20, 2016, retorted, “I fought with all my might against the phenomena of extremism, violence and racism in Israeli society that are threatening our national resilience and are seeping into the Israel Defense Forces; in fact already harming it… But to my great regret, extremist and dangerous forces have taken over Israel and the Likud party.”
Mahmoud Abbas, Head of the Palestinian Authority, Cairo, May 28, 2016, accused, “Today Israel is suffering a process of ongoing radicalization and increasing extremism, which has brought criticism from senior Israelis against their government. They all say that Israel behaves in a fascist and racist manner. They say so. Like the deputy chief of staff of the IDF said ‘Our behavior is reminiscent of the behavior of the Nazis prior to WW II’”.

 

These are a few examples all of which have followed Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan who stated in a speech given on Wednesday evening, May 4, 2016, at the start of Yom Hashoah, or Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, at a kibbutz in central Israel near Netanya where he stated, “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the horrifying processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then; seventy, eighty, and ninety years ago; and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016. There is nothing easier than hating the other. There is nothing easier than raising fears and sowing terror. There is nothing easier than becoming callous, morally corrupt and hypocritical.”

 

This original commentary drew the ire of a number of people both public and private and led to a rift in the halls of power as the Prime Minister found the comments repulsive while then Defense Minister not only condoned the Generals’ right to freedom of speech but encouraged other military brass to freely speak out against the government they serve if they have any doubts or contrary opinions. This quickly led to replacing Moshe Ya’alon as Defense Minister. Where military personnel do possess freedom to express themselves in private settings and not in their capacity as an officer, when appearing representing their position in the military they may not speak against the government elected by the people that they serve under. Generals and other military brass do not make policy nor do they have the right of criticism against the government and the policies they make, their job is to carry out the policies and commands which come from that government. Theirs is duty and country before all else and they are to appear loyal and dutiful whether they agree with the elected governing coalition or not. If generals in the military are speaking against the government, then what is to prevent lesser ranks from speaking out against the general and on and on down the command chain as once that chain is broken at one point, it weakens every other point in the chain below potentially leading to chaos within the ranks. Generals need to act with the same deference to the elected governance as they expect from those serving under them as they serve under the civilian government, not coequal. The Prime Minister was well within his rights and acted properly when facing blatant insubordination and IDF Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan also should have been punished and forced to retire or face a general courts martial for gross insubordination and disrespect for the chain of command.

 

Unfortunately, in a democratic and free society there are no measures by which retired leaders of the military, intelligence community and other areas of government where while in service insubordination is punishable, no such restraints exist. The same can be said of those politicians who sit in the opposition. As long as those challenging the sitting government are retired from service and not in any manner a member of the active or call-up reserves, they are free to speak their minds and oppose any government but should be restrained to mitigate their comments by adding a disclaimer that these are personal views and are not in any means to be considered officially supported by their former military, intelligence or other enforcement community which is by its nature subordinate to the government while they remain in service under any means including ready reserves as such position still bestows upon them the privilege and responsibilities of their rank. Still, there is a seeming preponderance of retired military and intelligence as well as law and border enforcement personnel who are more than ready to denounce and otherwise protest vociferously any Zionist or nationalist governments and position while seemingly there are none who take an opposite view ever quoted or mentioned in the media coverage. One would have to believe that the entirety of military, enforcement and intelligence personnel are diametrically opposed to the current government and have always held views which could only have made their ability to serve with full belief, trust, confidence and command authority under any Zionist, nationalist or right leaning government during their time of service. One can only wonder why more command officers have not retired in protest if they find the nation, society and government to be such an anathema to their strongly held views. How are the people to have faith that these officers would follow orders if their personal feelings are that the government is wrong in all its views and is destroying their nation? Such officers should be weeded from service as they would be ineffective at commanding with conviction.

 

Military discipline within the ranks is of paramount importance which any Commissioned Officer or even Non-Commissioned Officer will attest. There is not functional military if a soldier can disregard their responsibilities simply because they disagree with some politics. That goes just as much for the soldiers who claim their politics prevents them from operating beyond the Green Line as it does for especially the Generals at the highest levels of command that they support their commands as they are presented by the civilian government without any dissenting or questioning of these commands as long as they are legal commands. Legal commands have absolutely nothing to do with an officer’s political beliefs; they simply need not be outside of those limitations in place by war crimes laws or constitutional restraints. An officer has every right to refuse an order to cleanse a town, village or other area of life as that constitutes a war crime. On the other hand, being ordered to quell a riot in a location which includes people with whom the officer had strong feeling of sympathy protesting a political view the officer concurs with does not mean that they can refuse to carry out the order. Sure they could request not to be placed in such a situation and may explain their discomfort but discomfort be damned, if they are still given such an order they are to carry the order out to the best of their abilities. They may have been given the order expressly because they sympathize with the protesters as the officer giving the order chose them in order to assure that minimal force and largely coercion and discourse be used and force as an absolute last resort. This is further why the officer in such a case even without further explanation should carry out the order as another officer might take such an order and use force as their first option as they disagreed with the protest and had a visceral contempt for the protestors. Such also would be a reasonable reason not to give the assignment to the second officer and why the first officer would be preferred for the task.

 

Often military orders when they reach the lower rank individuals make little sense and it is not until well up the chain of command that a general pattern and potentially a feel for the reasoning and the goals becomes intelligible but even that is often nowhere near the whole picture. For the whole picture one may have to go well beyond even the theater commanding general to the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff or even the President in the United States military. With separate commands for the Air Force, Marines, Army and Navy it is possible that no one branch of the service understands the entirety of the mission. The nice thing is that one need not know everything for the entire mission to succeed; all one need know is what exactly is their part in the bigger picture and doing what they were told, preferably without undue questions. After all, how many questions can one have when told to hold both sides of a bridge until relieved? Eventually, when ammunition and hopes running equally low it may come to mind to call headquarters and inquire as to when one might expect to be relieved. They likely will not like their answer.

 

There will be some who may ask what about initiative and taking additional tasks onto oneself and their individual unit. That may or may not work to one’s advantage. Let’s take a hypothetical situation using that bridge example. While holding the bridge the Sergeant or Lieutenant notice another bridge about half a mile upstream and decide to hold both bridges. What these brilliant tacticians were unaware of was that there would be a train transiting that very bridge they took upon themselves to also hold and Command has a massive bombing and artillery barrage planned to take out the bridge with the train in transit. Their men would probably not enjoy being on the wrong end of such an assault which is why you hold the bridge you were ordered to hold and nothing more.

 

This is also why military personnel in their official capacity are not to express their ideas on policies; even those which may not initially appear to have any military consequence. Everything stated by a high ranking military officer has a political slant whether intended or not. Where things like it is raining or what a nice sunny day may appear innocent enough, once again they should clear such statements all the way up their chain of command if that is what is required to have their wording properly approved, and that means every word, even reciting the first three lines of a poem, in French, the poem “Chanson d’Automne,” which means “Autumn song.”

“When a sighing begins
In the violins
Of the autumn-song”

This would have been a disastrous poem for an allied officer to have recited on the BBC anytime too far in advance of the D-Day invasion of France as it was also the trigger signal that the invasion was imminent and the individual French Underground units were to prepare to destroy their assigned rail lines and bridges. We would not have wanted them reacting to key words too far in advance.

 

Military personnel of all ranks are to be subordinate to the civilian government and should show support despite any misgivings they may have simply as a deference to the will of the public and to keep morale within the ranks. Probably part of the reason there exist enlistees who express conflicting desires such as serving in an elite unit but only if it is not in certain sensitive areas. Where do they honestly think that elite units spend most of their time, Tel Aviv beaches? With some high ranking military officers speaking out against the government or being overtly critical of certain public views and equating these views with the views of pre-Nazi Germany right before Hitler came to power has ramifications beyond disregard for the people and the government. Such outlandish, and likely false equivalence, makes for bait and ammunition for those who are opposed of the government and wish to use such quotes in support of the BDS movement or for United Nations condemnation of Israel. It should be noted that amongst the quotes at the beginning of the article is one by Mahmoud Abbas which is so similar in content and slant that one could be excused for believing he was another high ranking Israeli and not the leader of a terrorist group operating within the Palestinian Authority, as Abbas still heads Fatah and the PLO, both designated terror entities at some time in the past and present (the PLO still is considered a terror group) and used a direct quote from the Deputy Chief of Staff of the IDF who was credited with the quote, “Our behavior is reminiscent of the behavior of the Nazis prior to WW II.” His direct quote from his speech on the evening at the start of Yom Hashoah, or Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day was, “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the horrifying processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then; seventy, eighty, and ninety years ago; and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016. There is nothing easier than hating the other.” True, Abbas did not quote him directly but used his words to make the tie in that the Israelis are acting like Nazis and there is nothing that can refute his misquote of carrying a similar message as stated by Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan. His words were the dissenting and condemnation of Israel used this time. Who wishes to step forward and give the next anti-Semite the golden quotes with which to hang us all? If Israelis allow our political differences to bring us to voicing condemnation of our beloved Israel which are more vile and damning because our own are saying them, then we may as well pack our bags and be prepared to be thrown from our own blessed lands.

 

Whether you desire to believe that Judea and Samaria are the core, the heart of our ancient lands does not alter the proof that they are exactly that. It does not take a Biblical scholar to realize that Jericho, Jerusalem, Shechem, Hebron, Gezer, Debir, Azekah, Ayalon, Gibeon, Ai and the rest on the map below which shows simply amongst the initial cities conquered by Joshua after crossing the Jordan River.

 

Cities Conquered by Joshua as Recounted in Kings In the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament

Cities Conquered by Joshua as Recounted in Kings
In the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament

 

Quite a convincing argument when the Bible paints a picture with its words and historians make maps directly from the historic records as to where these ancient, and often continued to modern times, were located and what resulted from Biblical times. Where we are not claiming that these conquests grant Israel rights to all the lands conquered between Moses, Joshua, King David and King Solomon; but what we would claim is the lands promised by the world including the then Arab League after World War I and placed on paper by the British, adopted by the League of Nations, Ratified in the Anglo-American Treaty and accepted by the United Nations under Article 80. These agreements granted Israel the remaining lands of the British Mandate after 78% was taken from west of the Jordan River and used to fashion the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan which upon their independence renamed the area Jordan leaving the remaining 22% west of the Jordan River for the Jewish State. When after their genocidally inspired and declared invasion of the nascent State of Israel the morning of May 15, 1948 as seven Arab Armies from, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen joined the Arabs under the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini leading Arabs from within and outside of the State of Israel upon his return from Berlin where he spent much of World War II and was returned by the British; the peace was made with Jordan occupying Judea and Samaria and Egypt occupying Gaza and Syria occupying the Golan Heights, lands originally denoted for Israel (though some debate the Golan Heights claiming they were belonging to the French Mandate and thus Syria and Lebanon would decide their fate). The entire time these Israeli lands were occupied, there was no clamor for the founding of a Palestine State for Arabs and this was only decried after the Arabs again attacked Israel in 1967 intending to, as stated by Egyptian leaders, “Drive the Jews into the Sea;” and when Israel liberated her lands not perishing before the Arab armies, then came the idea to make another Arab state carved from lands known to belong rightfully to Israel. Biblically or treaties made in the Twentieth Century, the lands west of the Jordan River belong rightfully and legally to Israel. That is the reason that the Arab League and the Arab groups such as the PA refuse to take their claim before any world court as they know the truth which reveals their falsehoods and pretenses for what they are, naked aggressions attempting to destroy a member state of the United Nations, one which the United Nations appears unprepared to judge and treat with equal fervor they do the lie intended to destroy and replace the Jewish State and murder its Jewish population. The Arab powers in 1948 claimed they would complete the Final Solution which Hitler failed to accomplish and that should tell all who are acting as the Nazis despite what leftist and self-despising individuals might claim in making their political ambitions known. The truth is that the leaders of the Arab rejectionists promised their people in 1948 that they would slaughter the Jews and enjoy their spoils. They have not altered that promise or a single letter since and state so in the Charter of the PLO as well as Hamas and Hezballah. As their promise is the elimination of Israel, the murder of her Jewish populations, and for Hamas and Hezballah this should be followed by the elimination of Jews worldwide while conquering the world for Allah; these leaders cannot accept a two state solution as they are fully vested in a single Arab state solution and a form of the Final Solution for the Jews. That is what has made any compromise impossible and even if the Jews were to offer to withdraw to Tel Aviv, the Arab leaders would continue to claim the right to reject the Jewish presence on their sacred lands, the lands the Arabs conquered somewhere in the Seventh Century which still leaves the Jews the initial claimants by any living people. Am Yisroel Chai.

We have heard things must be prepared to fall into place and negotiations resume with an end clearly in sight. How can this not be as President Obama has made a slight aside to distract those opposing him by claiming he doubted any progress could be made before he leaves office. Don’t let this fool anyone; he still has his eyes on a second Nobel Peace Prize by forcing peace on Israel no matter how much of Israel he will need to destroy before stepping down next January. Throwing his weight into the mix is another man facing a lackluster career as Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon has thrown his support behind Palestinian terror giving his understanding of the frustration having forced their acts of wanton murder of Israelis (read Jews). He preceded that with throwing a hissy fit because Israel had not taken whatever was demanded of them and had not resumed the peace talks with Mahmoud Abbas. Ban Ki-Moon was probably daydreaming about Pope Francis when he prayed at a carefully chosen segment of the anti-terror barrier near Bethlehem which had painted in English its comparison with the wall around the Warsaw Ghetto. The montage below is just a sample of the numerous pictures taken and released with who knows how many other pictures were given to the numerous NGOs which do their best to ravage Israel around the world in the many media outlets. This is the very Pope Francis who praised arch terror master and financial procurer for the Munich Olympics terrorist murders of Israeli Olympic team members Mahmoud Abbas as an Angel of Peace when hosting him at the Vatican, probably the most horrific mischaracterization in modern history.

 

With the visions of Pope Francis, the status and media availability at the beck and call of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon seeking his legacy and the other leader in search of a legacy and President of the United States Barack Obama all focusing laser-like glares at Israel demanding that they do whatever their darling, Mahmoud Abbas, demands of them to make peace at long last. They claim simply by returning to the boundaries of the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, and the removal of those infernal settlers and make the land pristine and devoid of any Zionist menace to threaten Palestinians into committing terrorist acts and allow the formation of Palestine. What could go wrong and defeat the efforts of such monumental efforts pressing Israel and aiding Mahmoud Abbas and the long stricken and stateless Palestinian Arabs whose existence without a state of their own has gone on longer than can be measured. What is insane is that is actually a true statement as it was that in 1770 the British colonists in the Americas along the Atlantic Ocean who were demanding their own nation too had waited to establish their nation since the beginning of time. These two peoples had something in common, neither had ever had a nation of their own and any claim they were making was to establish a nation on lands which had an aboriginal peoples already living on them. The American colonists were sharing lands sort of with the Native American Indians and the Arab Palestinians are sitting on lands which sole surviving aboriginal people which are the Jewish descendants of the Tribes of Judah and Benyamin and their surviving priests of the tribe of the Levites which included the Levites and the Kohanim. The reason the surviving Israelites are called Jews is because after having lost of the Ten Tribes of Israel after they were taken into captivity and enslavement by the Assyrians and then nothing as they assimilated or moved to the fringes of the Assyrian Kingdoms and then beyond seemingly lost to the rest of the remaining Israelites until recent times. The southern Kingdom which resisted the assaults of the Assyrians and eventually fell to the Babylonians and were freed and allowed to return and build the Second Temple by Cyrus the Great of the Persians as he conquered the Babylonians setting the Judeans and the remaining members of the priesthood and the tribe of Benyamin who reestablished Judea which lasted until the Roman dispersion. The Judeans were referred to by both the Greek Empire and the Roman Empire thereafter as Judeans and the slang was to call them Jews, it stuck.

But little items such as the truth and promises and treaties reached after World War I which redrew the maps of much of the world outside of the Americas, China, Russia, southern and central Africa, and the Far East. The Austria-Hungarian Empire and Ottoman Empire being defeated and this ended the self-rule of the latest version of an Islamic Caliphate and its colonization of the Middle East outside the Arabian Peninsula on across North Africa and into the Balkans and Caucuses around the Black Sea and into Spain where the spreading colonization had lasted an average of 900 to 1250 years replacing numerous indigenous self-ruling nations by force of arms. The average of 30 to 50 years of colonialization by European powers are constantly scorned for their sins of colonialism and slavery. The slavery trade by the Islamic societies long predated the Modern European period of slavery (post Roman Europe). If all of history were to be used to measure some of what modern Western society has judged to be vile and hateful activities are now used by the very societal descendants of those who had committed the sins of slavery and colonization long before, during and even after the Western nations and societies had relegated such practices to the dustbin of history.

 

Still, despite the promises of the League of Nations, the allies met and reached a solution referred to as the Mandate System to assist in the formation of two separate states for Arabs under two leaders and societies, a Christian homeland and a Jewish homeland out of the French and British Mandates. That Jewish State was to border the Christian State of Lebanon on the north, Egypt at the meeting point of the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev Desert and Jordan at the Jordan River. After the War of Annihilation by over a half-dozen Arab militaries starting the morning of Israeli existence with the genocide of the Jews and other non-Muslims as well as any Muslims who refused to join in murdering the infidels as its battle plan. The entire operation was expected to take days, maybe a couple of weeks to completely destroy these weak and inferior Jewish upstarts. The Arabs were coaxed by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini to leave their homes and farms and join behind the massing Arab armies in camps for a few days and then they could return and share in the plunder of the Jew’s homes and other assets along with the invading conquerors of Arab armies. Something went wrong and the Jews, while losing lands did not lose entirely and remained on the lands the Arab armies were unable to conquer and built the State of Israel. Gaza was held by Egypt, the Golan Heights by Syria, and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) by Jordan. These lands belonged to the originating state of Israel and were the initial lands held by Israel on the morning that the Arab armies invaded and initially pushed the Jews before them until the Jews finally stopped the initial thrust and over the next year and a half the Israelis initially held the line and finally began to make headway gaining back the lands she had lost and that is when the world set the date when the fighting would end and an armistice line formed. Had the Israelis never had started pushing the Arab armies into retreats the war would have been allowed to continue in the knowledge that the Jews would eventually lose due to attrition as they would slowly be killed until a tipping point was reached where the numbers of defenders would leave the only solution a routing and annihilation of the Jews and their nascent state. The Jews winning would become a familiar point where every Arab Israeli war would be stopped.

 

But fear not as Pope Francis will likely assist as he is capable while United States President Obama and Secretary General Ki-Moon will combine their powers and efforts and press Netanyahu to get the peace process started or else they will make terms for settling this dispute finally and once and for all. They will demand that Netanyahu and the Israelis do whatever it takes to reach a peace agreement. The word will be they have spoken to President Abbas and he has pledged that he is ready to make peace if Israel and Netanyahu can get past their never ending demands that the Palestinians give up on their homelands and settle for living in Bantus just as the native South Africans were forced to do. Their use of the same word, Bantus, for the settlement areas they agreed upon in the Oslo Accords. But if one were to be honest, they would have paid attention to the demands and maps used by the Arab leaders of the Palestinian Authority, its predecessor the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), a near universally recognized terrorist organization, and the media and education systems well documented by a number of groups including MEMRI, PMW, and CAMERA. They all document the incitement and demands not for two states but for the eradication of the state of Israel and the genocidal slaughter of every Jew in Israel.

 

The masks are coming off and with only a year to go Ban Ki-Moon will be going full out to repay his masters who awarded him the position of Secretary General for one reason, to rid them of that ugly stain known as Israel and he has skillfully led a United Nations and various sister organizations and NGOs in the expanding of boycotts, divestments and sanctions through their assistance and supportive activities such as the labelling of every possible Jewish historical sites such as Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb as not belonging to any list of Jewish historical sites as they are in what the United Nations holds are Arab Palestinian lands and within Palestine. President Obama and the United States State department also raised complaints at Israeli insistence that these sites be renovated as Jewish historical sites. What does it matter if these tombs are four thousand years old, they have to be part of the Arab and Palestinian heritage. At the time Secretary of State Clinton was enthusiastic in supporting the Administration and UNESCO and other United Nations groups in the denunciation at this Israeli attempt to steal these Palestinian sites.

 

This will be a fateful year for the continuation or death of the state of Israel. You might think that such a dire existence would make Israelis nervous, worrisome and potentially frantic. You would be wrong as we have much practice at looking impending death in the face; we have been doing it as a peoples for the last three and a half millennia. There have been numerous empires (Roman, Greek, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Egyptian, Spanish, various Caliphs, Wazirs, Emir, Sultan, Kings, Barons, Czars, Communists and you name it), maniacal leaders (Hitler, Stalin, Haman, Ramses and again you name them), and just about everything else you could name such as the Spanish Inquisition, and also from 1315-1326 Emir Ismael Abu-I Walid forced the Jews of Granada to wear a yellow badge. We are familiar with persecution and somehow despite our small numbers throughout history we are still here, we are still vibrant and we are still fulfilling our imposed role in our influence commanded to be as a light unto the nations when we as a people have our own lands as we also serve Hashem and in all things walk humbly with our Lord. Yes, it seems we are facing ever graver threats from all corners. We look around us at those closest who desired our demise and note their worlds are the ones in complete turmoil and unrest while despite our problems and even internal threats and challenges we will persevere and meet the challenges and mitigate the threats, both internal and external, and continue to discover and develop the needs and items for the future of mankind and eventually Hashem will allow us to be rewarded with the arrival of the Messiah, the rewarding time we currently can only dream about as there is more we need to conquer in ourselves before we would even recognize and follow our Messiah should the Messiah arrive tomorrow; bless Hashem.

 

And we did not even get to mention France, the European Union and at least a dozen others willing to give away all of Israel so they will be eaten last.
