Never before in human history since the Roman dispersion of the Hebrews, largely consisting of the majority remaining tribe of Judah, thus the Judeans, simply the Jews, being sent throughout the Roman Empire, particularly around the far-reaches from the heart near Rome to Jerusalem, has the world been so innately consumed with the daily actions, routine or otherwise, of such a small population sitting on such a thin sliver of land. Then, as now, the reason all the attention was with the intent of destroying the claims of an independent nation for the Jews, Judeans, in the area they believed Hashem had set aside through all of eternity for their inheritance. The fact that the people claiming this particular sliver of land at the east end of the Mediterranean Sea also claim that there is a purpose in life which is above and beyond hedonistic self-gratification and that they have a guide which defines the self-restraints which make for the most egalitarian of societies and for the most productive and healthy lifestyle was considered irrelevant. These people call this guide Torah and they claim that it demands they obey an intricate mixture contained in the six-hundred-thirteen commandments given them by Hashem to guide them to be a light unto all the nations received at Mount Sinai, a nondescript mountain which was not the highest nor most magnificent peak amongst mountains in the region but special in other ways often believed to be beyond understanding, which makes these demands solely of them while there are but the seven laws of the Noahic Code. These people, the Jews, have no desire to force or even entice others to become Jews and even will grant those who desire to convert three opportunities to decide conversion was a less than ideal decision. We ask them to reconsider the first time at the close of the discussion about their desires and reasons they seek to convert and they receive their first actual requirements which include at least two years of classes and testing to assure the new member understands the rituals and requirements for guaranteed inclusion. We offer them an easy and understandable reason for quitting at some midpoint of their education about Judaism and what is required of each Jew or Jewess and they are granted one last opting out at the end of their conversion ordeal immediately before or during their Rabbinic review in which their general knowledge and reasons for converting are questioned and considered by a panel of Rabbis who must decide if their education has been sufficiently absorbed.

 

These items are considered as the Jews having a superiority complex whereby they place themselves as being better than the others and thus resented. The truth is that Torah teaches that we live lives consisting of and presenting a model character and live by the examples of our forefathers and their desires to perfect the individual and through such be a light unto the nations. We are taught to be humble but resolute, to be learned but intuition and feelings are of equal and sometimes superior quality, we are told to set an example yet to refrain from aloofness and ingratitude, to live according to the teachings from within Torah and to be true and faithful to the Torah and to Hashem. Despite the Commandments being spelled out and such that anybody is capable of viewing them, still people claim that the Jews have secretive plans to reach out from the current Israeli lands and expand out and establishing a Greater Israel from which the Jews will rule over the world. This idea was supported by the Czars who went so far as to write a book meant to prove the Jews had such a plan and that the Torah classes where the Rabbis who had spent their lives learning Torah and books written by other Rabbis and compilations of the best of these writings but nothing which instructed Jews to try and rule the planet and corrupt governments. The forgery was titled “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” was written by the Czars and utilized to validate a series of pogroms thus making the writing produced by the Czars was used to murder the Jews, not to place the Jew over other people and was a complete fraud and corruption of all being a good Jew is about.

 

A good Jew is one who is kind and who has developed a mindset of service to mankind. They are to be forever humble and to use life’s day to day interactions outside of studying Torah and supportive writings such as Talmud to learn through studying people and to find where Torah can be used to grant further insight that explains the behavior and how Torah can be used to overcome the confrontations and strife both in an individual life as well as such infecting an entire society. Much of Jewish studies are molded around serving mankind both as a whole of their society and as each individual as an entity in itself. A proper Jew views each individual both as a single drop of water in and of itself striving for perfection and also as member of a group as a clean and supportive role flowing as river through a city which can have either of two competing roles. Such a river could be used by all the residents as a source of drinking water and for irrigation and for any purpose except one. The instance anyone chose to use the river as a method for waste removal, the rest of the people downstream would no longer be able to use the river for drinking and irrigation as the waters had become fouled. There are many rivers in our lives, metaphorically speaking, and one of the most important rivers are the ways in which we interact and treat one another.

 

Here as well such rivers can be refreshing or polluted by each individual and once a river between peoples become tainted and polluted by hatreds, the river is very difficult to make clean again. Hatreds between peoples are strange in that many times they cannot even explain exactly what caused the hatred or their hatred really came from somewhere other than the object of their hate. This is very true when we come to Israel as there are those who hold very strong hatreds towards Israel, and often against Jews as well, despite knowing very little about either or even having any direct knowledge or contact. In our world today it has become a cause celeb to hate Israel and to simply assume that Israel had committed some heinous crimes against many different people for reasons unknown to anyone. If you were to ask people at a demonstration against Israel why they are demonstrating the answers you would get would probably astound anybody with even the slightest knowledge in logic. The most honest would reply that they do not know exactly why the protest was being held. Others would at least know enough to say that it was because of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. What treatment they would likely be unsure or have some really out there explanations of what Israel had done or was currently doing to these Palestinian or even what makes somebody a Palestinian.

 

Some of the more profoundly erroneous reasons are actually accepted in the media and news agencies as well as entire websites and web-communities which have sprouted up repeating these misconceptions which seem to grow out of nowhere. There are those who claim Israel stole the Palestinian’s homelands in a war. Ask which war they will reply the Palestinian Israel war. No such war has ever occurred but that will not slow them down as they will say that Israel stole their land because of some conflict. That one is correct but it would probably surprise them to learn that the war they are referring to is the war by the Arab and Muslim world to eradicate Israel as the Jewish state. Others will claim that Israel forces the Palestinians to remain in camps; some might even claim these are concentration camps. The problem is that there is not a single Palestinian camp within the areas where Israel controls the location with the closest one to being under Israeli control is in Jenin which is located in the center of the city of Jenin which is entirely inhabited by Arabs who claim they are Palestinian for political reasons and not a single Jew resides in Jenin and if one tried to reside there they would be murdered within the first few minutes of their arrival and being identified as a Jew. The Palestinian Authority has complete autonomy over Jenin and any taxes paid are paid to the Palestinian Authority from Jenin and the policing of Jenin is performed by the Palestinian Security Service. All the rest of the Palestinian camps are in areas controlled by their fellow Arabs. There is one attached to the outskirts of Gaza City under Hamas control, there are a number in Jordan, more in Lebanon and there had been a particularly large one in Syria which ISIS destroyed after Bashir Assad had bombed it to oblivion, but none in Israel.

 

Some respondents are bound to claim that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians. They would be hard pressed to find out that the Palestinians numbers have increased from under a million in 1949 to around one and a half million at the end of the Six Day War and are currently around five million. At the point this new piece of information is entered into the conversation you might want to ask them if Israel is trying to commit genocide against the Palestinians and many will continue to claim that Israel is indeed attempting to commit genocide against the Palestinians. This is when you ask them if they can define genocide other than to say it is what the Israelis are committing against the Palestinians. The answers you will get will range from absurd to absolutely beyond belief. I doubt but cannot be sure if one somewhere might claim the genocide is not allowing the Palestinians to live, vote, roam freely or other deprivation which are all things which would be criminal if the Palestinians actually had Israeli citizenship. If these acts against the Palestinians are crimes then the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Brazil, Peru, Japan, China, Russia, Germany, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, South Africa and any other nation on earth are also guilt of committing genocide or whatever else one cares to call it. Israel has an Arab population around two-million strong with the largest share being Muslim and most of the rest Christians and a small minority Jewish and this Arab population in Israel is around twenty percent. These Arab Israelis work, live, vote, and have every right every other Israeli enjoys and some even are serving in the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset. There is one restriction placed on the Arab Israelis that is also pressed against other non-Jewish Israelis with the exception of Druze who demanded they also have this right, this responsibility. The one thing that the Arabs are not given that every Jewish citizen is granted is mandatory service in the Israeli army, the IDF. Israelis can choose to do national service instead of serving in the IDF but the Jews and Druze are required to do service and the Arabs are not required. Understand that Arab Israelis can and do serve and serve with distinction in the IDF and many are very brave simply because they face increasingly difficult challenges as their fellow Arabs sometimes will treat them very poorly. That is a sad state of affairs which the Jews in Israel play no part. Contrary to the Apartheid claimants, the Arabs in Israel do vote and everything else they desire doing in Israel.

 

But, Beyond the Cusp, you say that Arab Israelis vote in Israeli elections, but that is code for the Palestinian Arabs cannot vote in Israeli elections, what about that? Well, true and Israelis, especially Israeli Jews are not permitted to vote in Palestinian elections. In Gaza the last elections, and only election since that election in 2007 elected Hamas and they have been ruling over Gaza ever since. That election followed soon after the Gaza Hamas-Palestinian Authority and Fatah War where Hamas won in a coup removing the Palestinian Authority from having any influence. In Judea and Samaria, what many call the West Bank, the Palestinians have an Autonomous Region which includes all of Part A and some of Part B of the three divisions agreed upon in the Oslo Accords while Israel controls Part C. The original Oslo Accords theorized and is based on Part C of these lands would remain with Israel and Part A, where ninety-percent of the Palestinian reside, would remain with the Palestinian State and the debate was supposed to be where the demarcation between Israel and Palestinian State the border would be placed.

 

These disputed lands were liberated from Jordanian illegitimate control in the Six Day War in June of 1967. For the nineteen years that Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria after the Arab initiated war to annihilate the Jews on the founding of Israel they attempted to annex the area and even their allies from that war refused to recognize their action and in the entire world only Britain and Pakistan recognized their annexation. During those nineteen years that Jordan held these lands there was not a single peep about a Palestinian State and they were content that the Jews who had resided in those lands were expelled or murdered after or during that war in 1948-9. It was not until after 1967 when Israel took those lands liberating them after Jordan joined Egypt and Syria in the war they called the war to genocidally drive the Jews into the sea which they lost and Israel gained the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt and liberated Gaza which Egypt illegally retained after the 1948-9 War mentioned above. When Israel made peace with Egypt, Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula and the Egyptians surrendered any claim to Gaza which Israel granted independence in August of 2005 and Hamas took control a couple of years later and has been launching rockets into Israel at her population centers ever since, and not just right before the Gaza conflicts, as those were caused by numerous reasons, always including increased to intolerable levels of rockets fired into Israel. Israel liberated the Golan Heights in the Six Day War from Syrian control and has annexed them and they will remain Israeli lands for reasons of defense which are more important now since ISIS had taken control of much of Syria just beyond those heights. Israel also liberated Judea and Samaria which were part of the area the Jews inhabited at the time of the Roman dispersion of the Jews after they attempted to gain their independence from Roman conquest for the second time. For the record, the first time the Jews revolted and gained their independence, the Maccabees ruled Israel for almost two years before Rome overwhelmed the small army using a number of Roman Legions; the war was quick but also brutal. The second revolt only removed the roman garrisons for about six months and the Romans showed up with legions again and decided to rid themselves of the Judean problem so they did to the Jews what they did to Carthage, they took the males and sold them as slaves and rowers in their galleys, triremes and other ships and dispersed others around the far reaches of the Empire. Carthage has only been heard of when studying the three wars they had with Rome and also the fete by Hannibal of crossing the Alps with elephants, actually most of his elephants died in that endeavor. The Carthaginians assimilated and were never heard from again. The Jews managed because of Torah, they managed to remain Jews over the next nearly two-thousand years until in 1948, due to decisions and treaties made at the end of World War I, known then as the Big War, when the new lines and nations were being fashioned throughout the central European areas with the breaking-up of the Austria-Hungarian Empire, the Arab nations with the breaking-up of the Ottoman Empire which were delineated in the Sykes-Picot Agreement, and the formation of the Jewish State, and Syria and Lebanon in the San Remo Conference Agreement signed by the Arab League in the early part of the 1920s. The agreement allowing for Jordan was signed between the Zionist Congress and the British which left all lands west of the Jordan River as inviolate for the Jewish State backed by the might of the British Empire and the crown. Well, that sure meant a whole lot as the British voted against the formation of Israel when the United Nations discussed the partition of those lands west of the Jordan River when on November 29, 1947 where they recommended in a non-binding resolution, that word non-binding is very important as it meant that if either party to the agreement rejected the agreement then the entire agreement was invalid. The United Nations partition was rejected, but not by the Jews or the Zionist Congress but by the Arab League as they were planning their war in which they would easily defeat “the Jew” and take all the lands. They failed in that venture over the years of 1948-9 as a series of cease fires were arranged as the Arab forces petitioned and the Jews/Israelis gladly took the opportunity for peace. These ceasefires were broken repeatedly by the Arab forces and each time they lost a little more land. Had they continued after the armistice which they did not break until 1967, such great restraint they showed, perhaps Israel would have ended up larger later back in 1948-9 which would have easily added 1950 had it continued further.

 

Let’s get back to our discussing of the Palestinians not being permitted to vote in Israeli elections. That charge is quite true but then again Israel does not allow Egyptians or the French or the Japanese or a myriad of others to vote in their elections and why should they. The Palestinians vote in the Palestinian elections which have been held at irregular periods with the last election for Chairman of the Palestinian Authority being held in 2005 and put off when it came up again in 2009 and again in 2012 or 2013. Parliamentary elections were last held in 2006 and been suspended since and some of those elected in that election have been removed by edict from Mahmoud Abbas after the Hamas revolt in Gaza. So, Palestinian living in Gaza would vote in Gaza and did once electing Hamas and no further elections have been deemed necessary and Israel is powerless to force election in Gaza and why would they? Palestinian Authority last held elections in 2006 and in 2005 for the top position which changes names depending on the day of the week and the color of the wall covering of the room Mahmoud Abbas finds himself, sometimes Chairman of the Palestinian Authority or Chairman of Fatah and even Chairman of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization which remains a terrorist organization in many places), others Prime Minister of Palestine, and President of Palestinian Territories and your guess is as good as mine and I presume we will just have to wait and see. The Israeli Arab/Palestinian/Gazan again who knows conflict, which would be best given the name of the conflict by all and any means of destroying the Jewish state by the concerted efforts of leftist, Arabists, Islamists, radicals, and the useful masses (Stalin had a different and more descriptive name for these peoples) through any and every means possible including Roger Waters petitioning every and all rock and music artists to not perform in the Zionist Entity (that’s Israel or home of the Jews to the rest of us) and collective hate speech reserved for Israel and the Jews of the Middle East (which means Israel as almost all have been chased from almost every Arab nation) because we all have agreed to claim terrible things which remain unproven because most of them are truly ludicrous when examined critically because we do not know any better and have never investigated a single concept that we claim to be the reason Israel is evil conflict. Kind of hard to get your arms around isn’t it. You want to understand the Jewish love for that small sliver of land which is really small as the maps below show, read your Old Testament of the Bible and our attachment becomes more clear and then read about the Holocaust, the Inquisition, the pogroms across the lands where the Jews resided or the real history behind the Yellow Star the Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis centuries after any number of Arab and Muslim rulers forced the Jews to wear particular colors denoting them for scorn and persecution and the European cruelties and other indignities even including the mob burning of a Synagogue in New York in the 1800s and the edict barring the ownership of lands by Jews and their expulsion after the Civil War in the area controlled by General Grant which included all of Tennessee, Kentucky and much of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. His order was finally rescinded after Washington D. C. was finally informed and sent a rider back with the order but in that ensuing close to two months the deed had been done and most of the Jews lost their lands, possessions and were relegated to begging and fleeing the persecution in the United States so there are few if any nations free of guilt against the Jew.

The United States Supreme Court finalized the Obama Policy referring to Israel by refusing to recognize that a Jew born in West Jerusalem was born within Israel. Does the United States government truly wish to be one of the early members of that extremist European solution to the Arab Israeli conflict where inch by inch they grant more and more lands which are within the Green Line to the Palestinian statehood claims simply because they are attached in some manner to lands the Palestinians already are recognized as securing in their ever growing two state solution, Palestine A and Palestine B without any Israel? There have been some extremist views expressed thus far in hushed tones that claim all of Jerusalem must be made the Palestinian capital and Israel forced to use Tel Aviv as their capital for as long as it remains left from the forming of Palestine. There have been hints towards including numerous purely Arab and majority Arab towns close to Jerusalem and in the Galilee into the declared Palestinian state. And lastly there is the Palestinian claim that all of the lands, and not one inch less, or millimeter for the Europeans, be returned to Arab rule and the Jews removed by any means which is most easily achieved. Pushing this inch by inch incrementalism can only end with one solution, and that is not a pretty or desirable solution by anybody’s standards. The original idea of granting an Arab self-rule in the lands lost by Jordanian aggressions when the Oslo Accords were foisted upon an unsuspecting Israel by a group of American and Europeans working with self-defeatist Jews seeking to make amends for defending their nation successfully from genocidal attacks by her neighbors, the original claims were deceitfully put forth as a small area in Judea and Samaria combined with Gaza having autonomy but without any military and reliant on Israel guarantees allowing for their protection from outside forces. Who or from where these outside forces might have been was ludicrous to even imagine but with ISIS running amuck that threat may finally have presented itself.

 

The problem with the stated goal of Oslo was that it was never intended to become the slow dissolution of the Jewish state by the Israeli apologists but was the concept of the Europeans, Arabs and some from the United States as the means for the destruction of Israel simply through ever more serious and threatening gestures of intent and faith in peace forced out of Israel gesturing her into her grave. Omar Barghouti defined the end goal when he spoke claiming that the entirety of the Palestinian and BDS forces had nothing to do with 1967 but was all about the occupation resulting from 1948. There were a number of difficulties for pulling such an incremental destruction to its finality which were overlooked but we will simply investigate a small but vital part. The initial problem was the expansive nature of one particular form of Zionism, religious Zionism which believed that the basic claim of the Jewish People to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea were the Biblical promise from Hashem that these were the lands by covenant and that we were the people Hashem chose to reside here in peace and security. This was presented by Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely who raised more than a few eyebrows when she spoke forcefully and emphatically when stating that the Jewish claims to these lands originates in Torah. That, if one reads history and is an honest representative of those events, the main impetus behind the world’s acceptance for the renewed existence of the Jewish State was the ancient and Biblical claims to these lands by the ancient Hebrews, the Jews of Judea. Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely was correct as quotations going back to the middle of the nineteenth century from Europe to the United States the idea was rising after the pogroms against Jews in Russia shocked the world and the call began to be made for the reestablishing of the Jewish State in its ancient Biblically defined lands. This eventually led to the Balfour Declaration which was internationalized word for word by the San Remo Conference which in turn was also approved letter for letter unanimously by the League of Nations and further transferred for enforcement by the United Nations in Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. History is now being channeled by some powerful and influential individuals who operate behind the scenes often using their wealth more than position to influence the results they desire; and one of the foremost of these results is the death of Israel and the end of Judaism as a religion of any merit or note in their vision of a perfect world.

 

I have often been inquired to answer why and what reasoning could lead this seemingly overt and near unstoppable pressure to destroy Israel and diminish the presence of the Jewish People in the world and potentially leading to the eradication of the Jews. My initial inward urge is to simply blurt out, “Why are you asking me?” But I stifle such an easy route and begin to try and figure out an easy manner which is understandable and still brief enough not to take up the rest of my life. The questioner more often than not tires of the litany and history necessary to grasp the enormity and depth of this conspiracy to end all conspiracies. The initial and most prevalent theories surround the Supersessionism as practiced by both the Christian Church, particularly the Catholic Church during the Inquisitions and Purifications and was also adopted by most of the Protestant Churches when they rose into prevalence, and the Islamic faith. Both religions preached fierce Replacement Theological Dogmas which in the case of Islam also targeted the Christian Churches, Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant, while both Christian Clergy and Islamic Imams preached their having replaced the Jews in the eyes of Heaven and in doctrine and covenant. These lessons often taught that the Jews being dispersed and placed at the mercies of Christianity and Islam was Hashem punishing the Jews for their grievous sins, in the case of Christianity it was for not following Jesus while in Islam it was for rejecting Mohammad. The ludicrousness of these complaints is obvious as, by definition, being a Jew automatically meant that one was not a follower of Christianity or Islam or they would already be Christians or Muslims and thus not Jews. For there to be a root religion now scorned of Heaven then there must be those who remain faithful to that root faith otherwise there would be no proof of the origins of these more recent faiths. But the initial hatred of the Jews was far more simple. The other tribes which the Hebrews passes on their journey out from Egypt in the Exodus were fearful as they had heard of the vanquishing of the Egyptians and the parting of the Red Sea and the Ten Plagues as well as numerous other miracles and successful engagements against those who had attacked them during their journey, thus the Hebrews approaching was something to be feared. For the Canaanites the threat was far more direct as they were the target peoples who lived on the lands the Hebrews believed was theirs by Divine right.

 

Such claims today would be interpreted as clearly aggressive behavior and a warlike disposition which would likely garner adverse reactions by the nations surrounding your intended conquest out of rightful fears. Back over three-thousand-years and the natural order of things was radically different, you kept what you conquered, plain and simple. Did the Canaanite Kings have a right to the lands they lived upon, yes, for as long as they were capable of defending said lands. History paints a different picture as they were unable to defend their possessing the lands and they were vanquished from the tribes of the earth. Were the Hebrews, and later the Jews, entitled to these same lands? Yes, providing they were capable of defending them. This proved problematic but somehow the Jews even after defeat would return and retake their lands and return to rule as written in Torah. The final blow, or should we say start of the most severe blow, was the conquest of the lands by the Greeks under Alexander. He, in turn granted rule of the lands which today are Israel to the Polemic rulers out of Egypt who in turn lost the lands to the Cyrenaic Greeks who in turn were conquered by the Romans. Interestingly, the Jews did manage to throw off Roman rule, even if only briefly until massed Roman Legions returned and attempted to teach the Jews a lesson. The second rendition of this lesson resulted in the dispersing of the Jews to the far corners of the Roman Empire as well as many being placed into slavery. This had been the Roman method for destroying a pesky and irritating people who simply did not conform and behave as expected under Roman Rule. The Jews had a secret by which they remained a viable people for almost two-thousand-years spent in the Diaspora spread across the globe, Torah. The Jews had a covenant with the Land because they had a Covenant with Hashem, and it was that Covenant which provided the nourishment serving as their religion, society, relations with others and Jews throughout the world and their life’s blood and center of their lives wherever they resided.

 

What is astonishing is that the Prophets had foreseen the periods and lengths of the three exiles from the Jews living in their own lands. Abraham knew of the four-hundred-year exile which was to be in Egypt while Abraham and Jeremiah who foretold of the Babylonian exile which was to last but a mere seventy-years. The final exile was warned about by numerous Prophets starting with Moses and was predicted the new nation of the Jews would be formed in a single day and that from that time until a final reckoning would be a period of miracles, and return of importance of Torah to all the remainder of the Jews and through Torah the Jews would survive until the coming of the Messiah which would be in its appointed time. The formation of Israel in a single day, as astonishing as it seemed throughout the ages as nobody could figure out how a nation could come into being almost as if by decree. Such was an impossibility until the modern era where such was possible and was exactly how the Jews were returned to Israel. What was another prediction by many Rabbis and learned individuals was that the Jews would find their way back to living a life defined and dedicated to Torah. I had expected that when I made Aliyah that Israel would have a much more importance to the study and understanding of Torah but I was not expecting such to fall into my lap as if made possible by Hashem, Baruch Hashem. Within two months of our arrival I had been invited to join a Torah class given in a really wonderful young man’s home and instructed by a Rabbi who had a great presence and forceful gentleness wrapped in a cloak of authority. I only was able to study with this learned and upright scholar for a short period as Hashem sent for him in what we here believed to be premature time but who are we to understand, let alone judge. We have a new Rabbi teaching our group, a man of humor and wisdom with many insights and stories of great Rabbis and Jews and their contributions to Jewish knowledge and life. He is warm and generous soul that we are blessed to be able to learn with him. He must have thought me irreverent when we first began our classes mostly because I am irreverent but in a disarming and amusement and not intended as disrespect and he has realized that this is my way of personalizing what I am attempting to learn. The extent of religiousness was surprising and I feel that it was also a blessing and that the use of Torah as the first and foremost reason for our right to these lands is the exact manner and direction our leaders should assume, though getting them on board will take great amounts of effort, a good deal of time and perhaps a miracle or two Hashem willing.

 

In the meantime we have European nations granting billions, and possibly combined, trillions of Euros to NGOs which in turn finance NGOs around the world and worst of all, internal to Israel. The Europeans have centuries of experience finding those Jews who are self-loathing and willing to work against their brethren just to be accepted in the ‘cultured’ world. These are the worst and most dangerous of Israel’s enemies. One cannot fathom why they remain living here if they hate everything about the people and the society as much as they must. If they find that European style society is so great and its allure so irresistible then move to Europe and allow the rest of the Israelis to live and love Israel as she is. Israel needs no alterations as Israel is the beloved of the vast majority of her peoples. We know you stay because from Israel you can be stroked by those who wish you and the rest of us dead and you believe they are your friends. May you never realize their true feelings for you as all you have achieved is getting to be murdered last. Stalin had a name for people such as you and, just as in his case; many of the useful idiots are the Jews themselves who work for the destroyers of Judaism simply to be permitted to catch a glimpse of their greatness. They are not great and the bright lights you have been blinded by lead only to misery and devastation. Their money does not equal love or even appreciation, only contempt for you beyond their hatred for all of us for they see you as the traitor to his own kind which makes you untrustworthy for what would prevent you from taking their enemies payments to undercut them were they to allow you into their midst. They recognize you for exactly what you are the destroyer of whatever society in which you reside.

 

Why do the European nations continue to spend trillions of Euros in their efforts to eradicate Israel and with it every Jews on Earth? Why, because that is what Europe has done since the Greeks banned circumcisions and forbade the study of Torah while desecrating the Holy Temple with pig entrails and other putridity. That is what Europeans do since the decrees of Rome sent many to be crucified, burned alive, and treatments such as was handed down on Rabbi Akiva which was torture so severe as to be unthinkable. The Europeans under Rome dispersed the Jews such that they would each die in their solitude, separated from one another and from any links to their homelands, but that was not a truth as each Jews still had Torah and with Torah, great hope. That is what the Europeans did on their way to the Crusades to assure that each Christian soldier had drawn blood and killed a man; they attacked and butchered Jews in their ghettoes where they were made to live apart from the rest of society, undesired except for their being practiced in the trades. Then the Inquisitions and the purifications arrived where Catholic fought Protestant and the separate Protestants had even fought against one another but all agreed that fighting the Jew was an act approved in Heaven for the Jew was the forgotten and cursed of all creations. The Christians were not to hold a monopoly on murder and denigrating the Jews as the followers of Islam also had their persecution of the Jews. They made them an inferior through dhimmitude and brought him low with the Jizya, a tax on the unbelievers of Mohammad. There were the wars between the Sunni and the Shiite which resembled the Catholic versus Protestant warfare as both Sunni and Shiite could agree that they might as well kill the Jews while they were cleansing their societies. There were the wars between the followers of Islam and the Christian Crusaders which traded rule over Jerusalem numerous times with each time the celebration brought the murdering of the other side which somehow also included the Jews residing near their holiest of cities, and this celebration of victory was not limited to Jerusalem but included every other city which had changed hands regularly.

 

Be their reasons religious or simply out of desire to steal riches or blame a calamity on the outsider, there was the Jew universally laid low whenever the situation called for a suitable victim on whom to heap scorn. It started even earlier with the idolaters who saw the Jews as being different and a threat. These Jews had a different way, an unseen deity an omniscient deity, a deity which scorned their ways of human sacrifice and the celebration of death mixed with their fear of death while the Jews took their own eventual death in stride and the rest of their days celebrated only life. They saw these Jews who claimed to be carriers of the light as competitors offering a new way which might catch on and threaten their hold on power. The Jews had strange mannerisms when it came to finding their kings and their kings were often outshone by a prophet, this idea that a ruler is not a deity in their own right was a threat to all kings. There was only one way to prevent these Jews from contaminating the thoughts of their kingdoms, so they would attempt to conquer the Jews and make his ways punishable by death and surely they will cower and be a threat no longer. That eventually led to the how dare these Jews persist and not die off like all other peoples.

 

The hatred of the Jews started early and has simply been enhanced and sculpted for the age in which it lives. Originally it was that the Jew brought ideas which threatened the idolaters’ way of life and their polytheism was also threatened by the Jewish deistic beliefs in a singular deity. Later and continuing even into modernity is the view of the holiness and sanctity of human life and how the human life is placed above all else in nature. That belief is a direct threat to the Earth Firsters and many of the eco-firsters who claim man is nothing more than a hair challenged simian. The seeming passivity due to their abhorrence to violence, especially the needless loss of life thrown into the battle as human shields, angers those who hold life and other human beings as precious and not as a lesser group to be sacrificed in battle just in case their presence in the confrontation will prevent their enemies from engaging. This tactic throughout history has seemingly had a greater validity when used against only two groups, the British and the nations produced by their colonies who would eventually decide to just kill everybody, and the Jews who continue to shrink from attacking where civilians will be needlessly killed.

 

This has been proven in many of the Gaza confrontations where a bombing mission has been called for a vital Hamas building and the warnings a full thirty minutes before the strike have been issued to all in Gaza, including Hamas, informing them of the time and building to be stuck. When the Israeli pilots arrive on their bombing run they see the roof of the building filled by women and children and thus abort the mission waiting to possibly strike it later. Unfortunately for the Gazans who are placed into such a compromised position where their lives may easily be forfeit simply relying on the Jews to be more humane than their enemy and believing that no target is worth that kind of killing of innocents as such tactics are not a guarantee as the mission may have been given to an artillery or armor division whose line of sight would not detect the innocents on the roof. Hamas, and also Fatah, PLO, Islamic Jihad and the rest of the Arab Palestinians, feel that even an indirect fire mission by the Israelis will often send a drone over the target right before firing on the position and if it reveals the innocent people in the target area, they are correct that Israel would not fire upon the target. This is the opposite of Hamas and the rest who target civilians as their first and foremost preferred targets.

 

But why do so many throughout history despise the Jews to such an extent? Well, probably out of a strange form of jealously combined with a perception that the Jews represent the ultimate other while murdering Jews has been historically acceptable probably partly because the Jews tend to stick together and are the permanent outsiders who only marry within their community which probably is another example of their feelings of superiority which anybody can witness after all that is what we have been taught as were our fathers and their fathers and their fathers before them back as far as one can remember so it must be a truism and, well, forget all the reasoning, the real reason is they almost never fight back. The fact that Israel represents Jews who not only fight back but prove victorious, well that is the one thing the perennial and historic enemies of the Jews cannot couch, a Jews defending themselves, that’s just not right. A small piece of free advice from a Jew who has fought back since day one, you’re damn right we fight back and plan to do so for the rest of time, so please just give us that which is ours and leave us alone. If the Arab Palestinian incrementalism continues to be pushed even if by the entire Arab and Muslim worlds and the Europeans and American and throw in the Asians and every other nation who is chomping for a fight, the Jews in Israel will fight back. All we desire is to be permitted to live in peace with the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and we will be content and will share any discoveries or innovations we uncover, invent, program or whatever else, that is the limit of what we require and given that morsel, tidbit, and area smaller than New Jersey and smaller than almost every nation in the European Union and definitely smaller than the twenty-plus nations in the Arab League, it is really a small price which will pay huge dividends, possibly the greatest being peace. Then the world can work to repair Syria and address ISIS and find ways to contain nuclear armed North Korea and soon Iran followed by who knows who else, but the future has sufficient challenges so there is no reason to look for one more by targeting Israel for any reason, period.

What happened to Pamela Geller with her being raked over the coals for provoking the attack by a pair of ISIS wannabes by insulting Muslim sensitivities and asking to be assaulted as she had invited people to draw the prophet Mohammad and was honoring those instigators from Charlie Hebdo who also provoked an assault by Islamic enforces of the Sharia. Pamela Geller had gone beyond accepted speech and had all but yelled “fire” in a crowded theater or its equivalent which was unprotected speech. After all, did not Ms. Geller have this coming as she had been tweaking the noses of Muslims everywhere at every opportunity with her support for the Apartheid State of Israel and its genocidal policies towards the Palestinians whose lands they occupied. She had been a defender of the indefensible, a stick in the eye of every sensible person, an itch which just had to be scratched out of existence and came close to finally getting her just rewards there in Garland, Texas. The real problem with these provocative actions of Pamela Geller was the fact that she always had innocents who she would inevitably place in danger and this time one of the guards who checked the invitations of the participants who received a bullet to the leg before the off-duty traffic cop who managed to shoot and kill the two ISIS wannabes in a flash of an exchange of bullets where the two would-be jihadists were encased in full body armor armed with AK-47 .30-calibre high powered rifle rounds capable of penetrating straight through the light chest-protector armor worn by the officer who was shooting back with the Glock version of a M-1911A-1 semi-automatic pistol firing .45 caliber pistol rounds which was incapable of doing more than leaving the smallest of indentations to the heavy body armor and would only prove effective by a shot to the head or a number of shots to the exact same location fired at close range. The wannabe-Jihadists likely thought they were invulnerable against the handgun used by the officer who, unbeknownst to the world, was probably the highest scoring officer in his department every year during qualifying as he placed head shots, the only place the officer could strike the assailants and do any damage, on both assailants as they moved towards the entrance dispatching both to Allah within fifteen seconds from the first shot. Pamela Geller is so absolutely fortunate that the officer at the front entrance was so cool under distress and engaged in a lethal firefight with all the odds stacked against him yet he calmly set his aim at the one place the assailants were vulnerable, a target of less than a square foot on each attacker and struck them both while under a hail of bullets fired from the two AK-47s which would have proven lethal if any round had struck the officer in the torso or head; yet he remained uninjured and saved the day for all inside the event, a real and perfect hero whose name must remain unspoken such that he does not become a target for other Jihadists but who knows he is a hero.

 

The above is the gist of the coverage Pamela Geller has received from the mainstream media from both ends of the political spectrum. She has been berated by both those on the left and those on the right though a few brave individuals on the right have bothered to place the blame where it belonged, to the two heavily armored jihadists who came guns blazing with ineffective fire and were put down by very effective and well placed shots which put an end to their assault almost before it began. So few, Fox News’s Megyn Kelly and CNN’s Piers Morgan both proved the exception and stood with Pamela Geller and the First Amendment guarantees of the freedom of speech, all speech, especially political and controversial speech as popular and easy, uncontroversial and uncontested speech needs no protection, only that speech which is likely to draw opposition or hatreds with threats of violence to silence one is the speech which requires protection from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. How soon we forget that the speech which requires protection is solely such speech which is most likely to ruffle some tail-feathers which requires protection such that freedom of speech is one of the five protected items in the First Amendment and the officer at the front entrance used the Second Amendment for the exact reason it is the Second Amendment and the enforcer of the First Amendment freedoms and the rest of the rights listed within the Bill of Rights and those from without but still guaranteed free men everywhere though some will face the scorn of their governments and its peoples who, like the majority of the United Stated mainstream media, refuse to step-up to protect the very Amendment which guarantees their very existence and rights to deliver the news, all the news and not just the light news of flower shows and other events having no controversies, having no enemies of freedom who will always attempt to silence those who brace the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and outrageous speech needful of the protection of the Second Amendment and the willingness for the rest of us to protect by echoing their words loudly bringing them into the light where the haters fear to tread.

 

But speaking to protect Israel and her people, the Jews, is no longer affordable speech and has been relegated to the darkness hidden in the shadows where it is spoken only in whispers for to do otherwise brings forth those who would slay us for less. On numerous college and university campuses whenever there is a counter protest in response to a pro-Israel rally, the pro-Israel rally is more often than not made to pack up and end their rally even if the pro-Israel rally had been set and received all the required approvals and the counter rally was apparently an impromptu response which occurred as a popular response. These counter rallies are often just as planned and have even been known to have approached the administration of the college or university demanding that when their demonstration begins it would be wise to close down the pro-Israel rally before anybody was injured as to allow the pro-Israel rally to continue would be an affront to their demonstration and a provocation to violence. A study performed by the Louis Brandeis Center in Washington resulted in findings that over half of Jews had been subjected to or witnessed an anti-Semitic act in the past year with a sizable number having witnessed or suffered multiple such acts. In the majority of instances the student was advised to let it pass rather than file a complaint. It is becoming more common on American university and colleges for Jewish students to be forced to prove their disapproval of Israel or face what can only be described as hate actions which will only be terminated once they have performed a mia-culpa and satisfactorily renounced any pro-Israel feelings. Student body election candidates have been requested to sign agreements whereby they promise to refuse any trips to Israel offered them by numerous Jewish organizations which have Zionist support but they are not made to sign any similar promise against Israel tours offered by pro-Palestinian or Muslim outreach organizations. When such petitions are brought to the attention of the administration there is often a lax attitude claiming such petition demands of the candidates cannot be turned away as such is simply freedom of speech issue. One can only wonder what their reaction might be if the petitions were made from the opposing viewpoint. Many of the anti-Israel campus efforts are well-organized, well-financed and often work in partnership with one or more parent organization which will arrange for additional support for any counter-rally in order to force the termination of any pro-Israel rallies. These coordination of events are mostly occurring on major universities and have turned particularly disconcerting in California university systems. The America college and university campus is rapidly becoming a hostile environment for Jewish students, especially any who are religious or particularly pro-Israel. One can only wonder how much longer before Jewish students are simply found unacceptable to attend college or university in many of the mainstream campuses in the United States. Another item to keep in mind and this is an item of great foreboding, or at least should be taken as such, what one witnesses on the university or college campus today will be main-stream in society a decade later. Imagine the average large sized company being slowly forced to let every Jewish employee go if they hope to keep order in their company and avoid unrest and potentially rioting at their front door threatening all their employees not to cross their demonstration lines and those who refuse the warnings find their vehicles damaged or destroyed when leaving that day. How many vehicles need be damaged before their employees are afraid for their lives and inform their superiors they will be unable to return to work until the demonstrators’ demands are satisfied? Whatever you so please do not make the same mistake the Jews in Germany during the Weimar Republic and even the initial two years after the Nazis initially took power and tell yourself, “It cannot happen here. We have an advanced and open culture where everybody is treated equally.” This is not true on many college and university campuses right now, how much longer before it invades the society when sufficient numbers of students have been so conditioned at their university or college? It most definitely can happen in the United States and has already started in Europe. How much longer before the United States society and governance is demanded to turn on Israel and then soon followed by demanding they turn against their Jews? Twenty years? Ten years? Five Years? Watch your local university and college campuses and see what happens should a pro-Israel individual be invited to give a presentation and see if they are permitted to speak freely. There was one instance last year where one such speaker was permitted to give his speech he had prepared but was told there might not be anyone attending their lecture. This was almost the case but a couple dozen students braved all opposition and the event was transferred at the last minute to a classroom and not the school’s auditorium. The even more frightening question is how long before these activities and hate campaigns move to the high schools and permeate the entire school curriculum. Think this is impossible? Check your school board or the textbook committees in your state and see what choices they have made for history and other course books. These school boards and particularly the state committees that choose the textbooks are often being infiltrated by people who choose books which omit mentions of Jews from their history lessons and show Jews in a dark light when they are mentioned. The history lessons and often the reading assignments in English classes include subtle anti-Semitic phraseology and in some cases outright anti-Semitism. This is an insidious creeping infestation of the secondary school curriculum and is slowly moving into earlier and earlier levels of education. Do not simply think that this is impossible and cannot happen in the United States as that has been the response throughout history and in just about every case it did happen here and the people eventually accepted it as an inevitability and would make the excuse simply asking, “What could I do against the whole of society?” It would do well for every person of good faith to remember and be mindful of the warning which was initially sounded by John Stuart Mill though also often credited to Edmund Burke which stated, “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” The variant most often heard and probably more familiar goes something like this, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” So, when you see this evil approaching do not rely on your neighbors to launch into action, take the charge and lead them to action, the feeling of empowerment to have acted and thwarted such evils is reward in and of itself, the gains of society are immeasurable.
