The Unforgivable Sin of Israel

 

If one were to ask the average college student from any of the west’s liberal bastions of tolerance through indoctrination where political correctness trumps truth and social justice is an empty phrase which can be filled with whatever definitions fit the blowing winds of that political correctness which censors everything to name the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the name Israel the answers you would get would have little or no relevance to Israeli reality. You would hear hateful yet there is no kinder or more generous and giving place in the world. You would hear racist yet Israel took in the Jews of Ethiopia when they faced a threat of genocide, took in Vietnamese boat people when much of the world was prepared to let them drown or starve. Israel flies half way around the world to set up fully functioning field hospitals at the location of disasters before other nations can even get a clinic working. Israel augments these field hospitals with a series of clinics and often sends teams out often to places which have never seen aid or government assistance in memory in places such as Haiti and the Philippines or Japan and often leave these clinics and the equipment placed for their operation in nations in need of such facilities again in Haiti and in Japan close to the damaged nuclear plants after the earthquake and tsunami. Israel sponsors one of the most altruistic and wonderful organizations the world possesses called Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) organization which in and of itself would qualify tiny little Israel as one of the most giving and great nations of the world (after the article visit the site of this organization if you are unaware of their works and prepare to be amazed as they go even further than their site can explain). You would hear Apartheid in a nation where every ethnicity, religion, race and nation of origin are treated with complete equality with the one condition, that they came to Israel legally as no nation can be required to accept as citizens people who crossed their border illegally and under false pretenses; though many have attempted to make Israel the first nation required to do so under threat of worldwide sanctions. You might hear warlike as it is true that Israel has had violence thrust upon her requiring violent response but Israel is also a nation, though threatened from all sides, willing to surrender land many times her size for peace as she did with Egypt and offered to do with Jordan yet Israel is now being demanded to surrender her historic heartlands of Judea and Samaria to a terror organization turned international darlings, the PLO which took on a name change while leaving the heart of the PLO terrorist group fully intact and doubling as the governance of their whitewashed Palestinian Authority which is about to once again postpone, which means cancel, elections which were scheduled originally for 2009 but the political winds do not favor the ruling elite and not winning is not an option as in the wonderful and world darlings area under the Palestinian Authority, losing the election will more than likely mean losing your life to the new rulers, Hamas, a rival terror group with one major difference, the PLO, or Palestinian Authority, claims to be secular though its people are Islamist and Hamas is Islamist and thus already holds the hearts and minds of the people.

 

We could continue listing likely responses but the reality is that the image being sold by left leaning to left toppling over to the extreme end of the political spectrum will all find the worst and nastiest of lies and accusations to throw at Israel and then use their echo chamber to make them stick. What, you might ask, has Israel ever done to deserve such hatreds and lies to be spread about her. Well, it is simple really. Israel is the only Western, democratic and developed nation where her Judeo-Christian (truthfully it is Judeo mainly) core population is reproducing at well above replacement numbers and not shrinking as it is noticeable in Europe and soon to be evident in the United States and likely Canada and Australia as well. Israel holds to her Jewish faith as the jewel it is and takes it guidance and truths seriously and to heart despite those leftists and extreme secular socialists who desire to make Israel just like Europe, Russia or the city or suburb of the dying civilization they left behind. The religious community in Israel is gaining in its percentage of the population and is winning over numerous of the children from these other sectors of the society which is having their shortcomings exposed. Israel is the realization of the Hebrew’s dream to reestablish home and forever remain and enjoy this blessed land that Hashem gave unto us. This is made obvious simply by reviewing the past three and a half millennia of these lands. When the Hebrews, what you would today call Jews though there is a difference, settled here after conquering the lands from the tribes of hedonistic, child sacrificing idolaters whom Hashem commanded we expunge from His lands so we could tend this land as Hashem’s gift to us for as long as we kept the law, Torah, and did not stray from the true path with either mind or heart; we failed and were conquered by the Babylonians where the Song of Babylon was written (Psalms 137) speaking of the heart of the Children of Israel, Yerushalayim, and the soul of the Children of Israel, their Heaven ordained lands between the River and the Sea.

 

 

 

 

There is a reason the phrase, “From the River to the Sea,” has been adopted by those supporting the Palestinian Arabs replacement of the nation of Israel. This is because they have studied the history of the Jewish people and have crafted a false narrative where they claim every point from the history from the Hebrews entry into the land they claim they were the original Canaanites which would make them extinct, and they claim every point in Jewish history since including their claims that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Temple Mount and every structure in the lands are historically theirs and the Jews never existed in the lands. These claims are as valid as their claim to have invented language. The truth is the Arabs were residing in the Arabian Peninsula when the Hebrews, the ancient Jews, resided in Eretz Yisroel, the lands of Israel, and they were worshiping to the Moon god, Allah surprisingly enough, and bowing at the site built around their precious meteor, the same one placed so craftily in that huge black box in the central plaza in Mecca, the Ka’ba (see below).

 

Ka'aba in Mecca is holiest Islamic site in the world definitively holier than Jerusalem and the Temple Mount which is the holiest place for Jews alone.

Ka’aba in Mecca is holiest Islamic site in the world definitively holier than Jerusalem and the Temple Mount which is the holiest place for Jews alone.

 

Returning to the history and what truth it realizes about the lands of Israel. Throughout history these lands have been ruled over but never ruled from by numerous other empires since the original days of Hebrew (Jewish) rule under the Kings, Prophets and Judges of Biblical fame. Each empire had the same problems. The land refused to give up its abundance to them with one exception, the Persians. The Persians conquered the Babylonians and freed the captive Hebrews and allowed them to return and rebuild the Temple, the Second Temple, and settle in their native lands and be semiautonomous and simply pay taxes. Under this arrangement the land prospered, the Persians received their cut of the profit and everybody lived happily for a few centuries until some Persian decided they should simply take the land and its abundance. This led to the land failing and the Hebrews returning to the lands after throwing off the Persian yoke. Then there came the Greeks, Assyrians, Romans, Islamics, Christians, Muslims, and finally the British. The main change came when the Assyrians initially conquered the northern kingdom which had separated from the southern kingdom. The northern kingdom had the name Israel but did not include Yerushalayim thus having no heart. The southern kingdom was Judah which had Yerushalayim, a heart, but its soul, the lands, was incomplete. The northern kingdom was the federation of the ten northern tribes who after being conquered were not heard from again until recent modern history and spread throughout the world with some actually making the effort to remain loyal to Torah as best they were able, some better than others as is true in all human endeavors, and others falling away completely and never to return.

 

The southern kingdom also eventually fell but remained in the land and they were known as Judeans, which became Judans and eventually simply Jew. Whenever these lands were owned and cultivated by other than Hebrews or Judeans or Jews the land begrudgingly gave up anything and was mostly barren. When the Hebrews in any rendition worked these lands they prospered and produced in generous quantities all sorts of foods and products and the land gave wealth. This wealth was often proportional to the following of Torah and Hashem’s laws. When the Hebrews failed the land soured and they were conquered and often removed from their lands. Every conqueror failed to gain profit from the lands of Israel as can be noted even now. When the Jews resided in Gaza it had a flourishing agricultural economy and now that the Jews have been wiped from the land and Hamas rules Gaza it struggles and has a meager agricultural output compared to before. This might have something to do with the Palestinian Arabs immediately after the Jews departed tearing down and trashing the synagogue’s buildings as well as their tearing apart the greenhouses and irrigation works as they found a better use for those pipes than growing crops and eating well, they could make rockets to launch at the Israeli occupiers who had left the lands completely but to the followers of Hamas the Jews are still occupiers because as such they can be blamed for any and all problems stemming from having terrorists running your economy and lands.

 

The West Bank which is made up of Judea and Samaria, ancient Jewish provinces which is why Jordan renamed the lands something, as they described the new name, less Jewish. In these lands the Jews reside largely in Area C where the economy is healthy in most parts. The Arab Palestinians live and rule over Areas A and B where the economy is failing and there is gross mismanagement of resources once again due to terrorists running the government and hatred being their sole profitable product. What keeps the terrorists of Hamas in power in Gaza and the PLO reconfigured as the Palestinian Authority, a great example of putting lipstick on the pig to make it presentable, is due to the desperate support to try and remove the Jews from their ancient homelands being supported through funding in the billions of dollars per month by the Islamic world, the Western world and the Russians and in a lesser manner, the Chinese. This preconceived notion by the Western world that because the Jews returned to their lands, it upset the two main driving forces of their world. The Christians, especially the Catholics, are threatened because replacement theology, which is at their core and a definition of their relevance, depends on the Jews being the accursed of the Deity shared by Judaism and Christendom and thus forced to live throughout the world scattered and never unified or allowed to rule themselves always depending on the goodwill of others, meaning Christians, for their very survival and never ever ever being permitted to return and rule themselves in the Promised Lands. Refusing the Jews unilateral rule over Jerusalem is the saving grace and that the Jews do not control all of Judea and Samaria adds a small amount of safety as the Jews have not returned to rule over all the land; so maybe some of the curses remain and they can still claim to be the new chosen ones and the Catholics claim that the new religious center decided in Heaven to be Vatican City and Rome, what a surprise that the silent conquerors of all the Roman Empire would choose Rome of all places to replace Jerusalem in part. Israel, on the other hand, is prosperous, had a burgeoning agricultural economy, is a leading high tech center of the world, has many innovative companies and leads the world in start-up companies per capita. Israel per capita leads the world in books published, libraries, universities, people with bachelor degrees, masters degrees and doctoral degrees, patents filed and various other areas dealing with science, literature, the arts and all endeavors of social and scientific areas in modern societies. Israel is outdone in total numbers solely by nations considerably larger with the United States being the single most often nation ahead of Israel in total number but per capita it is an entirely different ball game.

 

Burning Israel Star of David

 

When asking college students in the vast Western societal deserts, where the big lie works as well as it always has, Israel is one of the worst places on earth filled with violence, inequalities, desperations and fraught with danger. Ask virtually anyone who had actually spent a fair amount of time; say a year or more, living and working in Israel and you will be regaled with stories of the great opportunities, the helpfulness and optimism of most of the people and the vibrancy of life in Israel. Does Israel have some problems? Well, it is not exactly heaven on earth but she is working on that. Some of the biggest problems stem from constantly having to be on a war footing and the economic price that demands. She has problems of relying too heavily on promises made and having all too many of them broken or made so difficult that their price makes them more threat than promise.

 

She pays a price at having to dance to the dictates of other nations in order to retain sufficient sway to avoid vindictive and viscous attacks from her plethora of enemies. She must balance her different friendly states who do not particularly like each other such as the United States, China, Russia and the European Union, though the European Union would be considered a hostile witness in the world court system when it comes to Israel. Israel has threats which are paid in bullets, rockets, missiles and terrorist attacks which while this should not prevent her also dispelling the lies spread about her throughout the corners of the globe (though I have heard the globe is spherical thus corners is a weird reference) as that would simply be a further strain on her economy. Some have suggested that the vast majority of the employees at Israeli embassies should be Israeli and other than the Ambassador (which unfortunately will never be removed from politics completely) should be trained and be returned every few years for additional training and updating the employees on how to best fight against the mendacious vile statements and accusation made against Israel so that Israel will have a ready force throughout many nations and areas where these embassies become a central hub supporting and even organizing within the Jewish and when requested other communities fighting lies with facts and truths. Yes, a lie will make it half way around the world before the truth gets its pants on and there is a reason for that, a lie needs no facts and the truth must find the facts with which to anchor itself or it becomes rumor and of no use in fighting that lie. Truth will always play catch-up but it has the advantage of veracity and facts.

 

Here are some final little points about Israel. Israel is a democracy and the only functioning democracy over the past sixty-eight years continuously. Israel is not only fighting terror against her own citizens but is treating citizens from neighboring countries and even the Palestinian Arab areas in her hospitals as a humanitarian action as Israel is the most humane nation in her neighborhood if not the world. Israel is quietly providing water, a precious resource in the Middle East, to Jordan to assist with the care of the Syrian refugee camps. Israel has treated victims of the Syria calamity of wars from all sides and all walks of life without asking questions or employing any limiting considerations as life is considered precious and worth saving whenever possible.

 

As noted earlier, Israel runs an organization which treats children with heart defects and sets up entire programs in hospitals throughout the world in some of the neediest nations, equips these departments with the necessary equipment, trains their doctors, nurses, staff, surgeons and support personnel in the use, care and methods of the kinds of operations and care they will need to provide and performs follow up visits to assure that all is working efficiently, takes children from enemy states who cannot come to Israel not have it known they were ever in Israel through third party nations while keeping their and their family’s passports clear of any record of their visit in order to provide life-saving operations many of which procedures originated with Israeli surgeons and researchers.

 

Israel has provided sanctuary to threatened people from throughout the world from the Vietnamese boat people to the Ethiopian Jews and Jews from India and further and the Baha’I. Israel has no class system or other manner of separating people and all citizens have full and equal rights religiously, culturally, socially, legally and have the vote with many actually placing members of their community in the Knesset and have their peoples serving as judges or working as doctors, surgeons, teachers and any other profession side by side with Jews of Israel. The one thing which Israel does not have is any Jews or troops in Gaza which is fully independent and ruled by the terrorist group Hamas whose violent takeover resulted in the embargo which Israel placed to prevent the arming of Hamas as much as possible. Israel, on the other hand, relays tons of food, medicine and other provisions into Gaza daily and provides water and electricity to Gaza for which nothing is ever paid on the bill that had accrued.

 

Israel also has no ruling authority over Areas A and B in Judea and Samaria where the Palestinian Authority, the redressed PLO terror outfit, rules the people and has refused to hold election which Israel cannot force them to hold and has basically crippled two full generations of children by raising them and indoctrinating them. These unfortunate children were invested with a visceral hatred of Israel and the Jews, educating them that only by destroying Israel and murdering the Jews within will they ever know freedom or wealth, They were fed a steady diet of conceit that their favored path is Jihad and their greatest glory is to die in Jihad and service of Islam and Allah. They indoctrinate and instigate on their television and radio stations which are licensed through Israel who has not cut them off as the world would have a conniption fit and become apoplectic. All of Judea and Samaria are legally Israeli lands and Israel could take control of these lands and choose whatever path Israel saw fit for the residents of Areas A and B as well as any other Palestinian Authority citizens as they are alien residents from Jordan.

 

This is further validated by evidence of the last nation of record, though Jordan had rescinded their citizenship and denied they ever were Jordanian, trying to refute even those with Jordanian official birth certificates and citizenship cards. Some even have Jordanian passports though out of date. This is the truth as Jordan conquered these areas after they invaded with five or six other Arab nations in 1948 attempting to erase Israel on her very first morning of existence. Jordan annexed these lands illegally and was only recognized by Britain and Pakistan as even the Arab League refused to recognize Jordan’s annexation of Israeli lands. Israel liberated these lands and the Jews which Jordan had thrown from their homes returned to find their homes gifted to Jordanians with connections to the Jordanian government and their businesses looted and destroyed. Many of the residents in these areas were from the other side of the Jordan River and moved to Judea and Samaria as the prices for property and homes was lower. These lands should have reverted to Israeli rule and the people who one week earlier were Jordanians in good standing should have been deported to Jordan as their being Jordanian made them illegal occupants on Israeli land.

 

Such mass emigrations were common throughout the early and middle Twentieth Century with the most famous being the Pakistan-Indian exodus which also saw great amounts of violence and many of the emigrants paid with their lives as the Hindus and Muslims were less than enamored with one another and both had their differences with the Buddhists who did their best to remain neutral and detached as is their way in this world. Israel is a very different place when one takes the effort to find the real truth underneath the hyperventilating and the lies screamed and protests of events and acts which never occurred. Given half a chance, Israel would like nothing more than to be allowed her natural and granted borders decided by the San Remo Conference minus Gaza as Israel surrendered that to the Palestinian Authority who lost it in a coup to a terror group, Hamas. As far as Hamas is concerned, it would be nice to be rid of them but they have so poisoned the minds of their people that they could not be incorporated into Israel without years of reeducation, something Israel would rather not have to do, so replacing Hamas with a governance not dedicated to the death of every Israel and every Jew worldwide would simply be the start to a long process.

 

Dreams are nice but reality will slap you awake every day you try to live a dream, so perhaps it is best to live with reality and go from there. As far as allowing a second Muslim state be established in any part of Judea and Samaria, Israel knows as well as Mahmoud Abbas that such would become another Hamas ruled area and Abbas and many of the other political leaders and societal leadership are fully aware that the first order of business under Hamas would be their heads removed or other accident. These are our truths and there is nothing else to add really, the lies will continue and the truth, as always, must be dug from beneath the layers of hate and lies spread to defame. These layers of hate and lies are simply made stronger as anti-Semitism blinds more people through the hatred which is older than any other on Earth.

Where We Are and Where it All Came From

 

The world is in a frightful state, and we do mean frightful as in scare the living daylights out of you. Merkel invited the civilizational Jihad to set up home in the heart of Europe and they moved in just about everywhere. The United States is having their quadrennial Presidential elections which are more reminiscent of elections for tenth grade presidential elections. Does the United States, with their three hundred million citizens and who knows how many illegals (hey, if they vote why not let them run too) really want us to believe that Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are the best they’ve got to offer? Puleeze! Then there is the fact that their media has not seen fit, from any political angle, to report that there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of OTM (other than Mexican) refugees being brought in from across the southern border as well as by boat and plane? What gives? Is this a bipartisan program with the tacit approval from the top echelon from both parties? If that proves true then the people have a right to be furious with the establishment. Perhaps it really is a case of good party-bad party where there really is no difference except in their campaigns of lies. Could it really be the fact that three of the four candidates for President are outside of the party boss’s iron-fisted control that has everybody’s nickers in a bunch? And what gives with Israel. Yes we have the constant demand for Israel to commit suicide and then the world not understanding why they refuse, that is an understandable crisis which has real depth and meaning. That is not the worst thing the media has to report about. They have a soldier up on charges of manslaughter for shooting a terrorist which is a combatant out of uniform. Back not so long ago in our day that was called a spy and could arrant being shot on sight, things have changed. We understand and get it, Israel is not permitted to shoot their enemies, they have to love them and give them land and everything until they can eradicate the Jews in Israel, we have seen this game before throughout our three thousand year plus history. We even just referred to it in our Seder when we read, “In every generation there is one that rises up against us.” The problem is in this generation there is a running contest on who can be the most devious of those rising up against us. I can handle our enemies if it comes to that but our friends, and we probably should write that as “friends”, those there is the problem that we aren’t supposed to shoot our friends quite yet. And on the political horizon we have reports of scandals which include, and we are not joking here, these were real scandals in our media; the Netanyahu’s eat a lot of ice cream; Sarah Netanyahu yelled at a former worker who was subsequently fired for poor performance, how dare she; the Prime Minister demanded a bed on the plane taking him on a twelve hour flight overnight where he was to give a speech the morning of his arrival before the United nations, the bed got deeper coverage and more commentary than his speech; the Netanyahu’s rescue dog nipped at people who were warned it was still nervous and temperamental yet they approached and stuck out their hands, surprise; then there are reports that the Prime Minister refuses to kiss the ring of United States President Obama, well, finally some real news, perhaps we should take this and run with it.

 

Many of the above stories had far more in depth coverage in Europe than the final actual news story and they were regarded as scandalous. Then there are the reports from the European media which make claims against the Israeli government or charge the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) with shocking use of violence against demonstrators throwing Molotov cocktails at them and these reports inevitable quote “Israeli NGO’s” as their source as if that makes it more credible. What they are not reporting is that these Israeli NGO’s get most if not all of their funding from the European Union (EU), European governments, European NGO’s and other foreign individuals and next to or actually nothing from the Israeli government or people. These are all extreme leftist organization who agree with the Europeans and are pushing for an Israel with an Arab Muslim majority as they demand Israel absorb five to eight million Arab refugees and they claim because Israel is a democracy that with the Muslims ruling the nation there will be freedom of religion and the treatment of the Jews will remain exactly as it is now. We would like to make a challenge to the members of these groups for them to spend a weekend, just three days, in Gaza City wearing a Kippot, a Yamaka. Then they can come tell us how things will not change. The only condition is that they do this unannounced and completely without any NGO protection. We feel sure that nobody would get harmed because it would never happen for two reasons, they would never be caught dead wearing a Kippot and they would never do anything anywhere near so suicidal.

 

I would like to make a few points about the Jews in Israel and Israel in general. First and foremost, we reached an agreement after World War I with the British government which held the control for creating a Jewish State in the British Mandate. We believed the British, silly us, when we agreed to allow for 78% of the Mandate lands to be used for an Arab Palestinian State east of the Jordan River in exchange for guarantees that the lands west of the Jordan River would be used solely for the Jewish State. Would it now be too much to ask that this deal be honored? Israel has no designs on lands beyond those promised us. Proof was our returning of the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt when we made peace. Further, the world need remember that the lands of Judea and Samaria, renamed by Jordan as West Bank, was occupied land and that once the Arab League refused the offer from the United Nations General Assembly in Resolution 181 which was a suggested solution, the entire resolution became void and invalid as it required both sides to accept the offer and only the Zionists who were to found Israel accepted. The Zionist acceptance did not bind them to Resolution 181 as the Arab League refusal followed by their general declaration of a genocidal war where half a dozen Arab states invaded Israel the morning of May 15, 1948, the first day of Israel’s existence, but that the areas which later were always referred to as Gaza and West Bank were actually Israeli land occupied by Egypt and Jordan for almost twenty years. Further, the Jews are the indigenous peoples returning to their ancestral home and the Arabs are the colonial power who took the lands from the remains of the Roman Empire which were another occupying power. Israel had faced occupation almost constantly since their fall to the Babylonians but has had the remnants of their people remaining in the land the entirety of our three thousand plus year history in the land of Eretz Yisroel. The Arabs did not arrive in these lands until after the year 600 AD which was a mere two thousand years after the establishment of Eretz Yisroel. As far as the use of the name Palestinian, the Jews were the original Palestinians as can be verified by simply reading any of the British reports from World War I and even before. There was even a Palestinian Brigade in both world wars which was comprised of almost exclusively Jews from the area called Palestine since the time of the Romans. The Philistines were never called Palestinians and were actually a Greek colony which resided along the norther coastal regions of the Sinai and even into what is known today as Gaza and their civilization collapsed and was dispersed some twenty-five hundred years ago and they were never heard from again. The Romans attempted to resurrect their name but it lost quite a lot of the identity in their translation which referred to the area as Syria Palaestina which was a Roman province between 135 and about 390, during the same period when much of the Jewish population was dispersed across the Roman Empire. This was the main reason that Jews were found in lands all across the globe, they were dispersed by the Romans and some fled even further to escape the cruelties of Roman decrees meant to eliminate the Israelites, the Hebrews. Rome had a set of procedures for eliminating peoples which worked so well that one civilization is remembered because of their succumbing to the Roman treatment for erasing a peoples, they were the Carthaginians. Hannibal was probably one of the most famous of the Carthaginians. The Jews survived due to their secret weapons, contained in Torah, Hashem’s laws meant for the Hebrews to live by and thus make them a peoples who, even when most assimilated, have this core identity and once they become the accursed and are either forced into exile or attempted to be extinguished, at least once every generation by the one who rises up to oppress and kill us, they have their Torah to fall back upon and reestablish their peoplehood.

 

Israel desires no lands beyond the Jordan or outside the lands promised us by the League of Nations, the British Mandate, the White Papers, Article 80 of the UN Charter or any other agreement through the years. Then there is the Jewish People. Judaism is a different religion than most others as it is also a ruling document for the Jews when they reside in the Promised Lands, those lands west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean. It is meant for no one else. We do not desire to convert anybody nor conquer lands which are not ours to claim. This is the land of Hashem for which we are assigned to care for and it will care for us for as long as we are faithful and follow the laws of Hashem given in Torah. When we follow the law we will receive the rains which are so essential if one is to survive long here in our lands. Simply ask the elders who have lived here since before the Zionist return. They will tell of a land which refused to give up her bounty. Read the accounts from Sam Clemens (Mark Twain) from his essay Travels in the Holy Lands and see his description of a land forsaken. The records of the many empires, the Babylonians, Egyptians, Persians, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Seleucids, Ottomans, British or any others who possessed these lands. Even the Canaanites did not get the full production of these lands until Abraham dug wells and every well he dug produced prodigious amounts of water and he left them for all to use as he was a generous and righteous man. We do not desire to make the world Jewish, quite the contrary, we just ask that we be allowed to be Jews in our ancient homelands west of the Jordan and nestled along the Mediterranean. Our only expression to everyone other than Jews is that if you wish a civilized society we can give as a guild the Noahic Code which is very much similar to our Ten Commandments without the religious requirements which is our relationship with Hashem (see both below). These are seven simple laws which make the backbone of almost every nation which also has a good human rights record which we would hold is no accident as the most difficult of the Codes is to establish a fair justice court system which ignores all except that which is true and proven. Beyond that recommendation we make no demands other than allow us to live beside all in peace and we will live according to our Torah, or at least try and live up to its high standards, and will allow the rest of the world to live as they choose. Those who may decide to live within our borders will be required to obey many of the legal requirements we demand of ourselves and will otherwise be free to live as they please and practice their religion as long as it does not conflict with our laws. One easy to understand requirement is if you worship Baal we will insist there be no human sacrifices as that is an abomination.

Perhaps we should not worry so much about Europe and the United States as they have been around quite a while and should have learned how to live and let live. Perhaps they could grant Israel the same privilege and respect. Hopefully we can all live in peace and understand that we all have our own problems and can eventually work them out with a minimum of distress. We have our own challenges and are not seeking any additional ones now or in the future. Those who insist on residing within what should be our recognized borders we will work out something mutually beneficial or we will face that difficulty as it unfolds. Israel has accommodated foreign attempts to intervene and run our affairs to their best interest which almost always appears to be in our worst interest and seemingly as attempts to erase the Jewish State. Let it be known that any attempts or demands that Israel not be the Jewish State or to deny the Jews a native land and other such intents which desire eradicating the Jewishness of Israel are, by definition, a form of anti-Semitism and will be treated with the dignity such deserves. Israel was established as the homeland of the Jewish People long before there was any Europe as we know it today. Long before there was a United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and every other nation. There was not yet Greece as that nation consisted of city states such as Athens, Troy, Sparta, Ionia, Lesbos, Aetolia, Messenia, Thessaly and many others (see map below).

Rome, the predecessor to Italy, was not yet even a twinkle in the wolf pack’s eyes as Romulus and Remus had yet to be born, let alone adopted by some rather peculiar foster parents, but at least one grew to be a man to be reckoned with while the other, well, not so much. France was divided between the tribes of the Gaelic and Frank among other lessor tribes. Even the recognized ancient religions of the Buddhists, Confucians, Hindus, Taoist and other Asian religious beliefs were yet to be founded as these came into existence during the time of the building of the Second Temple in Jerusalem and well after the reign of Kings Saul, David and Solomon. The main religious structure other than the Hebrews and Hashem, the invisible creator of all that is, was and ever will be, was idolatry and the worship of kings and Pharaoh as gods.

There were tribal cultures of idolaters worshiping such as Baal, the Egyptian gods, Greek and Roman gods, Babylonian, Persian gods and the Arabic Moon god Allah. Then there were the human gods such as Pharaoh, Nebakanezzer, Roman Caesars and other absolute rulers who were worshipped as gods. Even later there came the Mayan, Aztec, Inca, Olmec and others and their gods. The one seeming constant for many of these gods was the blood sacrifice which often was a human sacrifice. Probably the most abhorrent of these human sacrifices were those made to Baal as these were the sacrifice of infants, the most innocent and helpless (some examples pictured below). There are examples existing even today of idolatry and some would refer to avarice and the pursuit of wealth above all other considerations as examples of a form of idolatry where the coinage would represent their idol.

Wars of Vital Importance, Historic and Current

 

The name Arab/Israeli Conflict, or the newer more scandalizing title of Israeli/Palestinian Conflict, is actually, if we were to be honest with ourselves, the Islam/Judeo-Christian War for World Domination. What makes this name so difficult for Western minds to wrap their neurons around is because neither Christianity nor especially Judaism has any desire to rule the world but the same cannot be said in any form of honesty of Islam. Yes, the Christians originally had desires to rule the world and becoming the sole or at least the dominant religion on Earth. The leaders of Christianity were disabused of that notion at some point during the Enlightenment at the same time as the concept of a separation between any formal control of governments by religion nor allowing any state religion to be enacted or religion be favored by the government. So Christianity has adopted the concept of a division making religion free from the influences or restrictions of the government though voters of any specific religion are permitted to actually place candidates up for election, they are just restricted by the various governments in the Western World from showing any partiality, support, legal privilege, or other favorable treatments which have been upheld by the courts. The Church of England even though technically a state founded religion; they receive no real preference as a rule throughout the West.

 

Islam, and both the Sunni and Shiite Muslims are not so restricted and everywhere they have gained sufficient power the Muslims will do all within their power to forge Islam as the sole religion permitted by the State. Saudi Arabia has an official religion of Sunni Islam while Iran has an official religion of Shia Islam. They are far from alone. Currently Iraq is having a war, identical to what is happening in Syria, to decide which version of Islam will be supreme and dominate over the other with Iranian forces led by the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) and with Hezballah support fighting with the remains of the Iraqi Army which has either murdered or forced desertion of any Sunni Muslims making the Iraqi military a purely Shia; or with Syrian forces remaining faithful to Bahir al-Assad and his Alawite Shia Muslims, outfitted military while the central Sunni parts of Iraq and southern and central Syria has fallen under the control of the Islamic State which represents Sunni Islam. The final insanity which is today Iraq as well as Syria is populated by Kurdish peoples who have made their two areas in Iraq and Syria into a singular autonomous zone and their militias are fiercely defending their people despite lack of proper assistance as they had been promised and against any bombing by Turkish Air Force or other interferences by any other forces in the area and would likely be content to just retain their lands and not go on any offensive to gain lands though they might try to reacquire the lands they lost to the Islamic State and perhaps assist the Yazidi retake their mountainous region from which they were forced to flee by what was then known as ISIS and now has changed their preferred name to Islamic State.

Islam, neither Shia nor Sunni, have ever experienced a reformation nor have they ever forsaken the concept of world dominion. Both Shia and Sunni still believe they should not only be the preeminent for Islam but also the foremost religion on the face of all of Earth. Further, Islam fervently believes that any lands which have ever come under the rule of Islam must remain under the rule of Islam for all time and must never be surrender no matter the cost. This has been true concerning Andalusia which was the Islamic name given to Spain and Portugal when they fell under Muslim rule but were freed beginning in 1492 when King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella began the reconquest of Spain and the Iberian Peninsula as well as the Spanish Inquisition which forced the peoples to either flee, convert to Christianity, which meant Catholicism, or be put to death, a very similar fate befalling those who come under the forced rule of the Islamic State except they demand you convert to Sunni Islam or face torturous death which they can publically display on the Internet using such barbarity as a lure to gain followers and to impress fear on their enemies, which are all who are not Sunnis Muslims under Islamic State rule (it had to do with that rule the Earth thing). This is also the reason that no Muslim entity can ever make a peace with Israel which does not entail transforming Israel into a Muslim ruled state with the Jews at best permitted to live as Dhimmi and pay the special Jiyza tax for as long as their Muslim betters permit their existence as a protected second class citizen lower than the Muslim children’s pets which can end at any time at which it will be decided what the fate of those refusing to convert will face, expulsion or execution. Additionally, there is the concept that the Islamic messiah can only come when the Muslims are fighting the Jews everywhere they can be found and the trees and rocks will call out to Muslims saying, “Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” There is presumably an exception made where only the Gharkad tree (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews. This will presumably only happen when the warriors of Allah, the holy Islamic armies have had one side prevail eliminating the other between Shia and Sunni and the winner of that struggle is close or has acquired complete rule over the entire planet, then the final struggle which commences with the hunting down and extermination of the Jews as the Jews were the first to refuse to accept Allah or Mohammad as a prophet and secondly the followers of Islam believe that the Jews murdered Mohammad through poisoning. Further, there is the rallying cry used by Muslims during the rioting and demonstrations to taunt the IDF, police or other Jews which goes, “Khaybar Khaybar, ya Yahud, Jaish Muhammad, sa Yahud,” which means, “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.” Below is a video of the actors in an Arab Television Series Khaybar describing the themes, characters and even some of their roles in the shows in their own words for Egyptian television as advertisements for the show before and while it aired translated by MEMRI.

 

 

 

 

There have been in history two main thrusts by which Islamic armies attempted to conquer Europe, one from North Africa into Spain and repulsed at the Battle of Tours where Charles the Hammer Martel repulsed the forces of the Umayyad Caliphate under the command Abd Ar-Rahman Al Ghafiqi. This was the thrust from the west in October 732. The other main assaults came after the fall of Constantinople where the forces of the Ottoman Caliphate (Empire) twice made attempts to seize much of Europe and were likely hoping for their conquest to lead them to Rome itself. Both times, as fate would have it, their efforts came to an end on the outskirts of Vienna. The first battle came in 1529 with Suleiman I as the commander of the Ottoman Caliphate forces with two assisting commanders, Grand Vizier and Pargalı İbrahim Pasha. A combination of causes ended this thrust with the inability to breach the walls and deteriorating weather and excessively long supply lines weakening the Ottoman forces which were outlasted and had to retreat. The second thrust came in 1683 culminating on September 11 and 12 after having begun to lay siege to Vienna on July 14. The crucial turning point gave this battle a hero when King John Sobieski III of Poland and his heavy cavalry (Polish Hussars) ride in to crush the Ottomans wearing heavy plate (pictured below) and carrying pikes on horseback. King Sobieski III leading approximately eighteen thousand heavy horse cavalry, some of the finest in Europe at the time, supported by fifty to sixty thousand German and Austrian troops making up the Holy Roman Army broke the siege and saved Europe once again at the gates to Vienna.

These are the furthest extents to which the armies of Islam ever attained before being repulsed by the European defenders. These defenders are almost nonexistent today and the armies of Islam invading Europe are disguised as refugee families with babies and small children if one is to believe many of the pictures which are often chosen to make the greatest impact and engender as much sympathy for the Islamic refugees within which is the initial seeds for a future army which will rise up all across Europe and the continent will be lost in a single day. The invasion is being planned now and is in progress yet one would be hard pressed to find a single Islamic soldier who is ready to rise up today. The majority of the refugees, the ones who are not Iranian, Pakistani, Taliban or Islamic State planted organizers and eventual leaders, are actually refugee families and single mothers whose husbands have died or been impressed into serving one of the warring parties, are seeking a better life. These refugees will more resemble the families who immigrated to Europe seeking a better life and who contributed working and paying taxes. Even the children will mostly be upright and contributing members of European society. It will be the second or third generation educated either entirely or after school programs or through word of mouth and weekly or weekend classes which will teach them Jihad and slowly train an entire generation of Islamists ready to murder and even die for Allah. These will be children of middle class and upper middle class families which appear to have it all, television, microwave, two cars and kids spoiled and left alone after school to send to the Madrassahs because they promise a proper Islamic and general education but will also choose the leaders of each class to foment the hate and bile necessary for forming an army that will take the entirety of Europe for Allah. This is what Israel is currently facing as the entirety of social media, schools which indoctrinate, camps which provide military training, television which glorifies Jihad, sport teams which incite and teach that sports is a form of training for Jihad where each victory over the infidel proves Islamic superiority and all loses to infidels must be because they cheated or the officials stole it for them and this will build resentment.

 

We watch this in Israel taking place in Gaza and the Arab areas of Judea and Samaria. Since the signing of the Oslo Accords in September of 1993, the Arab areas in Judea and Samaria as well as Gaza have run their own schools, collected their own taxes, collected their own garbage, used largely Israeli provided electricity and water without making payments to the independent private companies who have had to raise rates in Israel to cover the literal tens to hundreds of millions of dollars, let alone shekels, and run their own governments with Gaza run by Hamas and Judea and Samaria run by Fatah and they have even held an election; that’s right, just one election as Mahmoud Abbas rightly fears he would be unseated and lose his multi-million dollar schemes and perhaps lose a lot more. Their entire society is predicated on glorification of the martyrs and raising each generation to aspire to martyrdom and the murder of Jews; that’s right, murder of Jews as they are not satisfied with just Israelis, they mean every Jews even the most secular Jew living the life in Anytown, U.S.A. Mahmoud Abbas has stated any number of times that he demands all of Israel as he just did before the United Nations Human Rights Council session in Geneva where he claimed that the occupation had lasted sixty-seven years, from the founding of Israel and the inability of seven Arab armies to destroy the nascent Jewish State in its crib. These poor youths who are so brainwashed with hatred and so programmed to violence that they are literally bringing a knife or a rock to a gun fight and then their leaders whine about their being shot. One can only imagine what would happen to a Jew charging an Arab in Gaza City except for one small problem, they would never get that far without being shot dead on the spot as soon as they cleared the checkpoint to enter Gaza, and yes a Jew, if they were even permitted, would need pass through an inspection at the same checkpoint that Gazans must pass through to enter Israel. There are no Jews or Israelis living in Gaza and it has been completely turned over to the Arabs to rule and they have ruled that they should fire rockets into Israel ramping it up to hundreds a day until Israel attacks every two years and then they complain that Israel is suppressing their rights to fire rockets into Israel indiscriminately aimed mostly at civilians. Hamas claims they are targeting military targets because they define every Jew as a military target. Much of the deceptions here are due to definitions which the media never bother to discern. They just repeat the lie. The media know that Hamas and Fatah define every Jew as soldiers even in their swaddling cloths and yet to speak or even crawl let alone walk. The difference between Israelis and the Arabs is that where the Arabs celebrate the deaths of each Israeli and celebrate the death of each of their own children attacking soldiers with kitchen knives and many celebrated the 9/11 attacks handing out sweet cakes and candies, the Israeli by and large mourned each and every one of these deaths and will continue to mourn every senseless death in this endless war. The saddest truth is the only way this Arab war with Israel will end is either Israel along with every Jew on Earth is murdered or Israel deals the Arab nations such a defeat that when their children in a thousand years hear the sound of an airliner flying lower than normal will quake and ask their mother, “Mommy, are we going to die now?” This is not what is desired as living together is far more preferable than this constant fighting and deaths of our children on both sides and our older citizens who are well beyond being capable of hurting anybody. Any senseless death is a death too many and there have been far too many on either side. Unfortunately the leadership in Israel will remain unable to do what is necessary as they fear that others might say nasty things about us and denounce us unless we allow ourselves to be slaughtered just as we allowed before we gained our own nation. I want to end with a question for my fellow Jews; how many of our infants need die, our youths, our teenagers, our octogenarians. When do we decide to do what is necessary and right for us, and in the end for the Arabs, to end this farce from September 1993 already and begin to build a society which respects Arab and Jew, ending the incitement and sending the instigators packing! When?
