It is not news that the Palestinian Authority plans on charging Israel with war crimes in the International Criminal Court (ICC) for supposed crimes against humanity and war crimes along with whatever else they can dream up, and dream up is what they are doing as facts will prove providing the court cares about the facts and not just striking the target because that target is Israel. One of the charges which has already received the headlines treatment by the constant repeating of the charge that Israel intentionally targeted journalists as part of their information warfare and preventing the truth from being reported by brave journalists covering their atrocities live and in person in Gaza. This charge has been played in the media across Europe and the United States and there have even been lists of accredited journalists released by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Palestinian Authority. Recently the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (MAITIC) compared the list of journalists repeatedly given to the various media outlets who never seem to lose their hunger for recriminations to report against Israel. What MAITIC discovered was revealing and tells a completely different story from the story told by numerous releases by the Palestinians Authority to every news outlet willing to report their charges without questions, after all, why would Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority lie about Israeli war crimes. It’s not like they would have anything to gain from reporting false information, is there? Well, with the voracious appetite the European and leftist media worldwide who accept virtually any anti-Israeli information without checking as it’s Israel, anything is believable.

 

What MAITIC revealed was that the list of journalists Hamas claimed were killed by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) during Operation Protective Edge last summer was a complete misrepresentation of the facts. Of the seventeen journalists reportedly killed by the Israelis, at the least eight were found to be on the known terrorist lists between Hamas and Islamic Jihad. This was just the known terrorists from the two largest terror armies operating within Gaza which also include al-Qaeda, ISIS and Fatah who were members of the Palestinian Authority ruling group before Hamas took control in a coup which pushed most of Fatah and Palestinian Authority forces out after a week worth of clashes. Additionally, two of the remainder on the list were not killed by IDF activities but instead died while witnessing Hamas attempt to defuse an IDF explosive round which had not detonated and Associated Press cameraman Simone Camilli from Italy and his local translator died when the round detonated during the defusing attempt which occurred during one of the ceasefires. Hamas would likely try to defuse any dud rounds in order to harvest the explosives and detonating systems within such rounds to use in their improvised explosive devices (IED) to implant along the fence to explode when IDF forces came within range of such devices. What you will not read in much of the coverage about IDF Operation Protective Edge against Hamas, Islamic Jihad and whoever else assisted in the terror war is that the percentage of known terrorists amongst those killed was at least forty-nine-percent. That this approximate fifty-fifty divide between fatalities of terrorists and potentially innocent civilians is completely unprecedented in the history of warfare and was made even more astonishing when one takes into account that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other forces used the Gaza civilians as human shields and chose to fight from amongst the civilian infrastructure rather than placing their rocket launchers and military units in the open farmlands. Hamas also broadcast news telling the Gaza civilians that the Israeli warnings about targeting certain areas were lies meant to have them leave the safety of these areas so the Israelis could target them at the places which were being denoted as safe zones. This led some number of Gazan to unfortunately remain in locations the Israelis had given warnings were being targeted. This was just another part of the Hamas strategy to push the civilian casualties as high as possible so as to utilize the body count to club Israel mercilessly in the international media relying on the world media’s proven record to believe any accusations against Israel. The feeding frenzy during the fifty day war where we were subjected to repeated media spokespeople asking over and over ad nauseum where were the Israeli casualties as there were so few Israeli civilian casualties compared to those in Gaza. Below is a video which gives evidence behind some of the most repeated claims against Israeli strikes which destroyed homes, a hospital, an agricultural college and an entire neighborhood explaining the realities which are all too often not reported even when the media reporters are fully aware of the realities as their desired story is not supported by reality so reality must be altered and the truths buried and shamed by hyperbole.

 

 

 

 

 

These questions were completely phony as the newscasters knew exactly the reasons for the difference between the casualty numbers. The Israeli Iron Dome antimissile systems were effective even beyond anybody’s wildest expectations with the possible exception of the systems’ designers against the despicable tactic of Hamas to maximize the number of Gazan civilians they placed in harm’s way. The desire was sickenly obvious, the media desired to incite anti-Israeli propaganda making it appear that the Israelis were aiming at civilian targets in Gaza while Hamas and Islamic Jihad had avoided aiming to cause Israeli civilian casualties despite their knowing the exact opposite was the reality but they were refusing to report the truth and saw an opportunity to use the numbers as a weapon to drub Israel repeatedly and they utilized it. Now that the truth is emerging we will see how many of these same media news organizations will report these numbers and set the record straight and refute their lies from the past summer. My bet is none will take the opportunity to come clean and instead are waiting for the Palestinian charges to be filed with the ICC so that they can trot out the disparity in civilian casualty figure all over again hoping to influence the ICC while setting up their astonishment act when the ICC finds Israel not to have committed the crimes the media has bet their reputations and believability over. They cannot ever report the truth as they are fully invested in the hate Israel rhetoric and willing to lie all the way to their own damnation when people finally realize the truth. Time will tell if the Palestinian Authority will actually file charges with the ICC or if their plan is simply to repeatedly release press notifications of their immediate intentions to file charges for this IDF crime or that IDF crime and simply play the media echo chamber for all it’s worth, and if past performance is any gauge, they will have a long but hopefully unprofitable run. One might think that the media would get tired of being played, but we have a theory, the media is doing the conducting and the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest are doing the playing and the concert will likely never end. Perhaps this kind of fiasco in reporting all the news that’s unfounded for printing (or broadcasting) that has caused the loss in believability news casting has taken. The Palestinian effectiveness in pushing lies through the media for years upon years on end was one of the reasons that Brian Williams thought he could, how do we put this, Palestinianize his experiences and get away with it.

World’s Lynching of Israel Continues at the ICC

We all knew this day would eventually come and now it has arrived, the conducting of an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into Israeli actions during their wars against Arab forces which instigated these wars and skirmishes by their terrorist activities. The area of scrutiny will be this past summer’s war between Gaza Hamas terrorists who had initiated the conflict with the launching of thousands of rockets into Israeli towns and cities aiming not for military targets but for civilian homes, businesses as well as schools, camps, daycares, hospitals and other civilian locations. ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said her office would conduct an “analysis in full independence and impartiality” into supposed war crimes by Israel, including accusations from Hamas’s most recent terror war against Israel last summer. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda is currently one of the Chief Prosecutors of the International Criminal Court where she had previously been a Deputy Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court. She is a native of Gambia and attended law school at University of Ife Nigerian Law School International Maritime Law Institute. Some might wonder why the ICC has dedicated their Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on an investigation of Israeli actions and not assigned a prosecutor to investigate Bashir al-Assad and Syria, ISIS, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or Boko Haram for their far more obvious criminal actions and threats they pose to the societies and nations in their vicinity. Could one of the mitigating factors be that Israel is a liberal democracy with freedom of the press and is an open book making any investigation much easier and that Israel offers a safe location in which to perform ones investigations and a ready supply of functioning five star hotels perched right on pristine beaches with an active and cultured night life while investigating these other far more worthy targets for crimes against humanity and war crimes are far more dangerous, have limited accommodations while conducting the investigation and simply looking into actions of these entities could easily result in great danger to those conducting such investigations. I am sure such creature comforts and relative safety had little to do with the decision to investigate Israel and none of these other entities. If I were to be detached and honest about the choices in prosecuting Israel over Syria, Boko Haram, ISIS or al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula by the Honorable Fatou Bensouda, I would completely agree with her choice as by comparison any groundwork to be performed in Israel, even if it included daytime trips into Gaza and seeking Hamas members for their giving interrogatories and affidavits, I too would most certainly decide to investigate Israel and would take my sweet time about it even knowing and being fully aware even before I started that if any irregularities or infractions were found and Israeli officials, either or both political or military, were made aware that Israel would immediately begin their own investigation and prosecution if one were seemed warranted. What many in the world might find hard to fathom but I feel I can predict this accurately and with little risk of being disproven, if the ICC demanded to be privileged to the entire investigation and to co-investigate the Israelis would welcome the assistance and expertise the ICC investigator could provide. Would any of the other entities which the ICC has thus far refused to launch any investigations be anywhere near as cooperative or even assure the investigator and their support staff’s safety to anywhere near the level that they will receive in Israel?

 

The reason being provided by the ICC’s Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, “A preliminary examination is not an investigation but a process of examining the information available in order to reach a fully informed determination on whether there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an (actual complete) investigation.” Needless to point out, Israel has deplored the needless investigation and pointed out that the Palestinian Authority is not a nation and thus may not call for an ICC investigation nor can it actually receive ICC membership. It was also pointed out that the war in Gaza pitted Israel against Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists who consistently ignore all the laws of warfare and regularly target civilian Israelis while utilizing the civilians in Gaza as human shields for their fighters and rocket launchers and have regularly placed their leadership within a bunker built underneath Gaza’s largest hospital to assure Israel will not target the Hamas leadership. Further, it is noted that Israel uses their military to protect their civilians as proven by the Iron Dome systems and their saving of Israeli civilians in the last war and that Hamas and Islamic Jihad use their civilians to protect their weapons of war and fighters. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu stated emphatically that, “Israel rejects the absurd decision of the ICC prosecutor. It’s absurd for the ICC to ignore international law and agreements, under which the Palestinians don’t have a state and can only get one through direct negotiations with Israel.” Earlier in the day Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman took to the offense accusing the ICC of starting an investigation in order to “try to harm Israel’s right to defend itself from terror.” He further accused that the ICC was “solely motivated by political anti-Israel considerations,” and he further stated he would advise against any Israeli cooperation with the probe. Cooler heads will prevail as nothing will be gained by refusing to cooperate. But should the investigation prove to be more witch hunt than honest seeking of information and truth, then expect a very public explosion of accusations from across most of the political spectrum against the Honorable Fatou Bensouda and her staff and expect them to be invited to depart from Israel controlled areas. Since Israel removed themselves from membership in the ICC they are not obliged to offer cooperation or to subject their people to rulings or trial by the ICC and should the ICC convict any Israelis of war crimes or crimes against humanity they will be investigated by Israel as well and if found guilty of such crimes the ICC will be the least of their troubles. Surprisingly, the United States, even including the State Department, have come out in complete agreement with the Israelis in that the Palestinians are not a recognized nation nor a state by the definitions of statehood. And oddly, there is an actual treaty which is accepted as providing the legal definitions of what an entity is required to meet to be recognized as a state and thus be accepted by international conventions, agendas, treaties and other legalities. The definition for recognizing an entity as a state they must first meet the definitions within the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States, something which virtually every international lawyer and is used by the United Nations and the majority of nations. Just in case anyone is curious, the Palestinians do not meet the requirements in the Montevideo Convention to qualify as a state.

 

I guess we have reached the point where I get to get myself in trouble by making predictions which could also qualify as guessing or taking stabs in the night while blindfolded. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda will spend over four months and demand Israel provides more documentation than any reasonable person might find necessary. Numerous prolonged trips to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to gather information and to research the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and their actions in Gaza this past summer will be required with most coming during the winter months when Tel Aviv is nice and warm and the ICC home in the Hague in the Netherlands is experiencing wonderful winter weather with near or below freezing temperatures and horrific rain or snow and Tel Aviv has weather suitable for swimming in the Mediterranean. Well, as long as one is not a skier or ice skater, where would you rather be in the middle of the winter, freezing in the Netherlands or swimming in the Mediterranean even if it requires you to visit Israel. Me too and I already live less than five blocks from the Mediterranean in Israel but fortunately not Tel Aviv. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda will refuse to comment quoting regulations and restrictions which do allow for the Prosecutors’ Offices from commenting on an ongoing investigation. She also will not want to let out that she has completed all the investigation necessary to reach a determination but with next winter arriving in a few months why give up on a reason to escape the worst of the winter weather swimming in the Mediterranean. The inevitable result will be, at the worst, one or two potential investigations which Israel will have completed proper investigations and have prosecuted any deserving soldiers or commanders which will negate the need for an ICC intervention. There has already been one investigation launched about six weeks ago into a potential situation which may require hearings or even a trial. The earliest hearings were held against a commander who was exonerated from the charges of refusing to pass information which may have caused investigations within his units to higher-ups but the investigation resulted in turning up the actual paperwork which had been filed with his superiors negating any suspicions or need for further actions. When the ICC Prosecutors’ Office releases their report signed and approved by the Honorable Fatou Bensouda revealing that no discrepancies or criminal investigation has been determined to be required and that the IDF has been cleared of any wrongdoings over their actions during the war with Hamas and the terror entities in Gaza during the Protective Edge operations over the summer there will be denounced and the Arab Authority, PLO, Fatah, Hamas and other Arab spokespersons will take turns denouncing the ICC for being duped or controlled by the Israelis or by the Jews who have infiltrated the Prosecutors’ Offices and tainted their impartiality. The Arab League will convene an emergency meeting to address the crisis caused by the obviously politicized lack of findings of guilt of war crimes committed by Israel during the summer war. It would not be surprising for the Arab nations or the Palestinian Liberation Organization to take a petition to the United Nations General Assembly demanding that they pass a resolution demanding that the ICC act on the crimes against humanity and war crimes which they must have discovered during their investigations and immediately make those crimes known to the world such that those guilty Israeli soldiers are able to be tried by European nations who claim international jurisdiction and demand that the IDF can be roundly condemned by the United Nations General Assembly in lieu of any action from the ICC. At the least the condemnation will be passed by the General Assembly and potentially there will be another resolution demanding the ICC release the entirety of their presumably confidential findings complaining that the summation and report they provided was inadequate and the General Assembly desires to review all of the evidence to determine what crimes were overlooked by the ICC under duress exerted by Israel and the Jewish world lobby. The grousing by Abbas, Erekat, Haniyeh, Mashaal and the rest of the Arab spokespersons even to include Ministers of the Knesset Zoabi and Tibi and others that there must have been dubious findings which had to be the result of evil influences which forced the ICC to issue their report exonerating the IDF which obviously had to have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. The overwhelming evidence, they will claim, was evidenced by the lack of Israeli civilian casualties compared to the overwhelming numbers of civilian casualties suffered by the citizens of Gaza. This disparity can only be explained by war crimes and the IDF targeting the civilians and could not have been the result of Hamas using their civilian population as shields for their rocket launchers and terrorist fighters or by the Iron Dome intercepting virtually all of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets fired which were likely to strike inhabited areas. There will be some European justices who will accept the Arab accusations and will issue warrants for the IDF hierarchy and potentially issue warrants for Israeli politicians in high office or holding Ministerial positions. Eventually everything will calm down and the warrants will lapse or be cancelled outright and the end will come when the Arab whining politicians have wrought all the media coverage they can from their whining about the evil Israelis and treacherous Jews. By then there will be something else with which to condemn Israel and demand that Israel be forced to conform to any and all demands made by the Arab Authority.

The number of demands coming from virtually every direction and so many counter to many of the others, it is remarkable that the leaders of Israel are not even further round the bend and must often feel like they’ve taken that trip down the rabbit hole. First, let’s take Europe, both the European Union and the majority of European governments. The going theme is that Israel needs to take every opportunity to do whatever Mahmoud Abbas, the man of peace if the Europeans are to be believed, demands in order to make peace so that the ever growing and vocal Muslim populations residing in Europe will not be further provoked to demonstrate or act out violently. Israel, according to the Europeans, must never ever take any military steps to defend themselves from Arab attacks or terrorist attacks and must instead sympathize with the desperation which drives the rioting and violence perpetrated regularly by the Arab population within Israeli borders set forth by the San Remo Conference and backed by the United Nations through Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which validated the agreements including the Mandate system set up by the League of Nations at the conclusion of World War I. Two lines of faulty reasoning drive the European demands, the first being the desire to placate and remove any instigations for their Muslim populations to cause violence and secondly they are reverting to their default position steeped in anti-Semitism except this time their anti-Semitism is targeting the Jewish state initially and against their Jewish populations only as a secondary front presumably due to the refusal of the Jewish state to follow the dictates of the European and other betters. The particulars of the Arab demands coming from Mahmoud Abbas and the other Arab leaders are irrelevant to the European demands that they be met as the Europeans would support any demand fully expecting Israel to comply simply for the reason that it would make the situation in Europe presumably less unstable and potentially of turning violent. It does not even matter that even when Israel complied and gave the Arabs complete autonomy and rule over Gaza that such did nothing to lessen the level of Arab violence in Europe and if anything caused it to increase rather than abate. The Europeans simply cannot understand why Israel refuses to capitulate to the Arab demands as the Europeans have done and this angers them as they appear weak and ineffectual in comparison and that is another humiliation which they believe they should not be forced to suffer. Additionally, there are those in Europe such as George Galloway and Richard Faulk and his wife Hilal Elver who simply hate the Israelis for being the nations of the Jews and needs no other reason to fully back the Arab demands and to even attempt to go the Arabs one better in demanding the violent destruction of the Jewish state and it being replaced by an Arab state. The problem is that even should the Arabs destroy Israel tomorrow, the Europeans would continue to have a problem with the restive and growing Arab populations and would have no Israel to blame, but then they would probably transfer their animus to the United States claiming their War on Terror was riling the European Arabs and that the United States should learn from Europe and find an accord with the Arab and Muslim worlds instead of always attempting to force the world to fit the American ideals and ideas.

 

Then there is the United Nations and their love to hate relationship with Israel. Their problem with Israel might have a little something to do with the fact that there is one Israel against the twenty-two Arab states plus another Thirty-four Muslim nations as well as the additional fifty or more nonaligned nations which make up the largest single group of nations within the General Assemble which most often vote as a block in unison. Additionally there are the anti-United States and anti-Israel nations and then the western nations who make up a minority of the General Assembly but still often vote against Israel or at best split half and half on either side depending on the particular vote and the result is there are often easily over one-hundred-twenty-five nations which will vote against Israel on every vote brought before the General Assembly of the United Nations. Then the makeup of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) there are forty-seven member nations out of which at any given time there will be easily between thirty and thirty-seven member nations which will vote to censure Israel on any issue and the HRC is one of the only bodies in the world which has in its bylaws a requirement that every session must open with a vote condemning Israel before addressing any other business, and this even applies if their entire docket contains additional motions for denouncing Israel for any variety of reasons. Researching the United Nations other than the Security Council, where the five permanent nations have an overriding veto power, and the most denounced and censured nations is Israel with the bulk of these motions originating in either the United Nations Human Rights Council and the United Nations General Assembly where the Arab-Muslim-developing nations block has an overwhelming and unopposable majority one finds a preoccupation with denouncing or investigating Israel and echoing every accusation emanating from the Arabs under Abbas. Some wonder why Israel even bothers to remain as a member of the United Nations as there is little for them to gain from such a membership except that it might possibly become even worse were Israel not represented, though how it could be any worse is beyond my understanding.

 

Now let’s attack the root of the problem and Mahmoud Abbas and the alphabet soup of groups his three organizations presumably encompass and represent. He is the Chairman, President or whatever title he assumes each morning of the following entities: the Palestinian Authority (PA), the Fatah Party (Fatah), the Palestinian Liberations Organizations (PLO). As head of the PLO he oversees in theory the following: Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Hamas, Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Islamic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (IFLP), Islamic Jihad, Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC), Palestinian People’s Party (PPP), Arab Liberation Front (ALF), Palestinian Democratic Union (Fida), Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF), Palestinian Arab Front (PAF) and potentially some we have not heard of or found in research but feel confident will pop up some time in the future to give a list of grievances and demands. Independent of these is Islamic Jihad which along with Hamas, al-Qaeda in Gaza, ISIS in Gaza and a number of criminal families who double as terror enablers and are tasked with some kidnappings for which they have shown a degree of expertise it becomes mind-boggling. With all of these groups to oversee and each with their own leadership and structures and some having multiple leaderships in different countries as example Hamas has Haniyeh who is usually in Gaza, Mashal who is most often in Qatar and the currently most active and tasked with running the Temple Mount daily riots, the riots throughout Jerusalem and much of the terrorism in Judea and Samaria committed by Hamas is Saleh Al-Arouri who is located in Turkey. So, this is a basic view of the infrastructure, now for the really confusing items.

 

Currently there exists the Arab demand before the United Nations Security Council which demands an end to negotiations, more on that in a moment, within one year of the enactment by the Security Council and the removal of Israel from all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem back behind the Green Line, the Armistice Line from 1949 which existed until the Six Day War in June of 1967, before the end of 2017. The result of the negotiations is for the Israelis to be forced to retreat from all the lands occupied illegally by Jordan against the dictates of the San Remo Conference and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter from 1949 until Israel liberated these lands regaining her assigned borders by international law of the Jordan River surrendering their rightful heartlands to Mahmoud Abbas and his merry bands of terrorist groups. The negotiations will result in the same result every negotiation has produced since the Oslo Accords set up the Arab kleptocracy in 1993, with the Arab negotiators making supremacist demands and refusing every Israeli demand. Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the supporting various leaders and functionaries have repeatedly stated that they will never in any manner or form recognize Israel as the Jewish state, they will never relent from their right to resist the occupation which is their code for terrorist activities, they will continue the resistance until all of Palestine has been freed from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, and they demand that every Jew be removed and forbidden from entering Arab lands despite often claiming they will recognize other religions’ rights to visit and have access to their various holy sites while adding later that there are no Jewish holy sites anywhere in Palestine from the River to the Sea because the Jews never lived anywhere near Israel and Israel is an invented occupying colonial western force used as a plot to deny the Arabs their rightful lands in which they have resided for nine thousand years (sometimes the period is less but always more than the three-thousand-five-hundred years which is often the reference for when Abraham and Sarah first arrived in Hevron, but Abbas claims that both Abraham and Sarah along with Moses, Noah, Jesus, Adam and Eve were all Muslims and they were never Jews as the Jews were a recent inventions which he has claimed worked with the Nazis. Senator and former American Ambassador to the United Nations Daniel Patrick Moynihan once stated, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts,” he probably never met Abbas and his enablers. Abbas has recently upped the ante by threatening to break off all relations and cooperation with Israel should the United Nations Security Council not agree to pass his maximalist demands and he is further calling for the vote within a short period of a week or two, meanwhile, there has not appeared to be any great rush thus far at the Security Council plus Abbas has been informed by United States Secretary of State John Kerry that the United States will use their veto on his proposal. Such news only appeared to double Abbas in his demands and insistence that everybody simply must do as he demands or else he will, what was it, oh yes, refuse to cooperate with Israel, refuse to have relations with Israel and demand that Israel assume their role as an occupying power. There is one small problem with Abbas and his reasoning, he has forgotten that without cooperation with Israel there is no Oslo Accords which he had already previously defiled and broken its provisions repeatedly by taking unilateral actions while refusing to actually negotiate while demanding Israel surrender to his every demand otherwise he will, you will love this, join the International Criminal Court (ICC) and bring charges against Israel for crimes against humanity and various war crimes. Of course, the fly in the ointment is that once they join the ICC they can be brought up on charges themselves for every terror attack by any and all the various incarnations atop which sits none other than Mahmoud Abbas, second in command for so long under Yasser Arafat and now the number one terror chief of the entire alphabet soup of terror enclaves.

 

These threats made by Mahmoud Abbas are all aimed not at Israel but at Europe, the United States and anybody else who chooses to panic. There is one simple reason why Abbas will not carry through on a single threat he makes, once he totally refuses to pretend that he will follow the Oslo Accords and leaves everything to Israel he will end up murdered by the terror groups he claims to lead. Then the most viscous of the terror groups will rise to the top by any means necessary and Israel will be freed to liberate the real moderates who are now kept muted and under thumb. The terrorists will be cleansed from the lands of Israel and the Arabs will either be given autonomy in the areas where they hold total majorities such as in Ramallah and Area A and the few Arab enclaves in Area B while the Arabs living in Area C will be granted a path to citizenship, a phrase given a whole definition by the United States immigration policy interests, or an option to sell their properties and resettle in the Arab autonomous regions or emigrate to other countries. The problem then will be placed in the laps of the nations holding refugees which they had kept separate in the hopes of sending them to infiltrate Israel in an attempt to destroy the Jewish majority of Israel. UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) will be dissolved and these refugees will be placed under UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) which will resettle them within the nations where they reside and no longer will their children and their children into perpetuity be classified as refugees, they will have citizenship and be able to have real lives as normal human beings. Abbas and his sons make far too much money, sending funding to the companies, straw entities meant to collect funds under false pretenses, from the billions of dollars given to the agencies for the care and comfort of the Arabs they represent. The Arabs are the real losers to Abbas and cohorts kleptocracy which steals the food and funds right out of their pockets by misappropriating the majority of the funds they are able to lay their hands on. Nothing will change because too many entities are making money on the misery of the Arabs under the rule of the terror entities and by keeping the causes and charges against Israel operating the rest of the world can continue to claim that it is Israel which is at the center of all the problems in the world. Should Israel finally be left to simply live in peace then the entire house of cards would collapse and there would be nearly countless people out of work looking for employment and it is difficult to find position for which the job requirements call for laying blame and lying while stirring up hatred in the name of making themselves the authors and definers of what is correct and what is unacceptable. Further, what would the United Nations do if Israel was no longer the target most acceptable for all blames and denunciations? Their funding requirements would be decreased to half what it takes today or lower. How can we bring this about, any hints?
