Saudi Arabia is used to facing problems for where the determining factor is oil or money. The current crisis is not one of that ilk. It is not one that can be done completely just by controlling the price of oil as doing that might upset Russia, the Saudi’s recent new best friend after the United States proved unreliable and apparently had joined the Iranians whose immediate plan is to take the Saudi oil fields thus neutering the Saudi influence and taking away their only real weapon. But the apparent newest friend of the United States has far more than taking merely oil, they want it all and the Saudis had best know about the other half of the Iranian plans, the half where they take the most valuable of the Saudi influences. The oil is only money and that can be taken back with force even if doing so heavily damages the fields as that too can be easily repaired and the Iranians do not wish to become merely the all but sole power over OPEC and thus be able to push the price of oil up or down according to their whims. But the oil fields, as such, are not even the primary goal because the Iranians have as their primary appetite which is to control Islam, something they find to be the more appealing and possessing a far more important goal requiring their attentions and that is to have the holy cities starting with Mecca and Medina. Some here believe that their backing of the Houthis to take control of Yemen is less about controlling the Bab el Mandeb Straights and more about providing them with a more direct route in reaching Mecca and Medina coming from the south which is often the least guarded area of Saudi Arabia and once the Iranians get past those tasked with guarding the southern borders it would become a three party race to control the holy cities, two being the Iranians closing from Yemen in the south and from Iraq in the north while the Saudi forces would need to be called from their concentration on the oil fields and transported the width of the country to join the fight. This lends to my answering those who have asked about what made me believe that World War III was on the horizon and this is my reply and explanation.

 

Once Iran controls the oil fields and both Mecca and Medina, and thus adding to the Shiite holy sites in Iran and in Iraq where their efforts will be directed in defending those near Islamic State borders or already swallowed by the Islamic State thus requiring liberation they can move to their next challenge. With their control over Mecca and Medina added to Damascus, Najaf, in Iraq with Qom in Iran they can then fortify any other Shiite holy places in Iraq from the ravages of the Islamic State and work towards returning Damascus and all of Syria which at the moment appears more like a pressing and difficult problem. Should the situation turn for the worst, as it appears that the Syrian and Hezballah forces are losing badly in Syria, Iran will need to interject some serious forces to reacquire all of Syria thus rejoining these lands with Iraq and thus attaining a direct land route for resupply. This will require the removal of Islamic State from their holdings and that may prove to be a most difficult task. None of these tasks are dependent on the Iranian production of nuclear weapons as those weapons can only be utilized in places which possess no natural or religiously important sites as such sites becoming uninhabitable due to radiation would defeat gaining their control. Taking out the Islamic State resources in open areas of lesser importance would be the perfect locations for tactical nuclear intervention providing breaking the treaty just negotiated would not prove advantageous as it would give the next President of the United States the perfect excuse to interfere with Iranian immediate plans to take control of the most prized and sensitive locations in all of Islam.

 

Fortunately for Israel and the United States these goals are more likely the primary goals for Iran as their gaining preeminence in the Muslim world and the display of Shia Islam as ascending and Sunni Islam as the weak and decrepit old and stale form of Islam would serve them well in converting the majority of Sunni adherents to Shiite doctrines. The fact that once the Iranians had defeated Saudi Arabia or at least gained the vital parts of the oil fields of the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia along with Mecca and Medina they could then set to establishing Madrassa throughout the Islamic and Western worlds replacing the Wahhabi schools and other centers with Shia schools and centers and will go a long way towards this goal. There are two other obstacles which Iran will need to overcome, Turkey and Egypt, both of which are well armed and have well trained militaries and will each pose their own necessary problems for the Iranians to address. Many might claim that the Kurds would also pose a problem but oddly enough, there are scenarios in which they could become allies if their ends were also considered. Should the Iranians prove to be the chess players they were at the P5+1 nuclear talks, not that President Obama desired to present any bit the real defender of the realm and actually desired to provide Iran with a perfectly clean route to nuclear weapons even to go so far as to provide United States assistance in designing the ultimate in centrifuges and potentially the actual plans, methods and procurement of equipment for the entire production of thermonuclear warheads and setting up multiple sites dispersed around Iran in German designed and build bunkers for their continued safety and Secretary Kerry as the clown at the talks being advised and encouraged all the while to simply give in at any sign of resistance and to make the demands in such a plaintive, diminutive and weak tone as to invite refusals, what could possibly go wrong as long as the American people were never aroused the plan would work, and it functioned like clockwork they will parley these gifts into further gains.

 

So, once Iran has cemented their control over the Arabian Peninsula, and the Shiite crescent through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, the next two nuts to crack are Turkey and Egypt. Turkey can be defeated quickest and with minimal efforts providing they decide not to simply bow to Iranian hegemony and take the refusal to their retaining independence and instead becoming a semiautonomous district subject to the whims and necessities of Tehran, then Turkey will have been neutered and the Kurds circumvented and thus left alone for the time being as their threat is minimal as all they desire, much like Israel, is their little corner of the world and they will be content ad happy. Unfortunately for the people of Turkey, I do not see Erdogan capitulating and to subside his rule to Tehran which would make him an enemy. The best tactic for invading Turkey would be to seek the aid of the Kurds under the promise of granting them the eastern quarter of Turkey and the lands they already control even including Mosul as an autonomous region loyal to Iran. As long as the Iranians remain loyal to their promises the Kurds would do similarly. This would leave Egypt as the sole roadblock to hegemonic establishment of the Caliphate as the rest of North Africa would readily fall to Iran. There is no easy way to take Egypt but she could be weakened severely just by the loss of the Sinai Peninsula and grabbing control of the two ends of the Suez Canal thus taking from Egypt a major revenue source. Probably the best manner of taking Egypt is from within and by establishing Shia Islam as dominant and thus having them desire to join the strong and growing in power Iranians who are the true leaders of Islam and the emerging Caliphate.

 

After Egypt the goal changes immensely and the impossible must be considered, well, the impossible from the erudite scholars in the West, nobody told the Iranian or the Arab worlds that such was considered beyond acceptable, the seeking to conquer the entire world and willing to do whatever it takes and destroy half the world simply to rule the remainder. The United States has always practiced capture and release policy starting in the twentieth century and this molded their concept that any one nation conquering the world was out of the question. Europe, as we have seen, would be happy to unite Europe and have it ruled by a council of the nations and somehow find some formula that equalized Germany and Greece and the two completely foreign to each other lifestyles. Europe, in its self-imposed demilitarized European theater would pose little opposition should their Islamic populations approach thirty percent and decide that Europe should be required to join the Caliphate as the real and unadulterated authoritative force in the world. It is entirely possible that should there be rioting and mayhem with hundreds if not thousands murdered in the uprising that the European Union would desire quiet to such an extent as to capitulate and then the nations would call for a meeting of NATO and it is quite possible that most of NATO would claim their desire to join the Caliphate and desire all of NATO to simply recognize that this was the future of the world. The United States and possibly some of the eastern European nations would oppose such and NATO would effectively be dissolved allowing the majority of NATO nations and European Union nations would just surrender to Islam without a fight, the preferred method by the rulers of the Caliphate.

 

 

Could this be an Iranian Caliphate resulting from the concessions all are making in the here and now and their hungers being satiated by a weakened and war weary Western World, especially Europe and leftists in America?

At some point the remaining European powers, probably Poland and England and a few of the former Warsaw Pact nations resisting and uniting with the United States, and oddly enough, with China and Russia all unite in order to fight to prevent what they finally recognized was an actual intent to rule the entire globe. The unthinkable would finally begin to be realized that nobody had informed the Iranians that conquest of the world was an undesirable goal and totally unacceptable by what was formerly the civilized Western World. The problem is that only the Western World had ever adopted that concept. Unimaginable as it would be to think so, but even Kim Jong Un probably envisioned a world being ruled by him or one of his progeny. The remaining powers somehow included Israel, which had lost Tel Aviv to the Iranian hope that one bomb would end Israel. Instead that one bomb just steeled their steadfastness and lighted the resolve of one third of American Jewry who made Aliyah bringing with them their wealth, all under an emergency plan by Israel’s government calling for all Jews to male Aliyah immediately. This was stated to be the rallying for the safety of Israel and Jerusalem. This swelled the Jewish population even after the loss of almost two-million souls when Tel Aviv was struck; the Israeli Jewish population reached an unthinkable eleven-million Jews. This in-swelling of the Jews from around the world was seen by many younger Arab Islamists as a sign for them to move across the Jordan River and join with the Caliphate which had absorbed Jordan in a three day blitz. The Jordanian King was able to get his family inside Israel along with many of the ruling elites who desired the relative safety of Israel than to face the often unpredictable dictates of the Shia conquerors. Israel offered safety and provided an escape to the United States where they all took up residence in the Napa Valley and spent their days sipping wine on the various tours of the vineyards.

 

The alliance of Britain, Poland, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Russia, China, a number of other smaller former Soviet satellites and miraculously, Israel joined forces to end the rise of the Caliphate once and for all. It is inevitable given the divisions in this world which have irreconcilable differences and completely opposing philosophic views and precepts, the clash between the two once the weaker, Islam, could be united against the currently still stronger United States and the British commonwealth nations which includes Canada, Australia, the British Isles, Ireland (though they would deny it till the end), United States, India, New Zealand, and a few I probably missed, would band together in a response to any threat against a single state, especially if that threat was aimed at London and Ten Downing Street and Buckingham Palace as the world knows, there are but five Queens in this world and there are near countless versions of four and one stands apart. They are the Queen of Hearts, Queen of Clubs, Queen of Spades, and Queen of Diamonds and above them all is the Queen of England. That will be the next and hopefully final world war though I have my doubts about last. Let us pray that the deal struck with Iran does not make that final World War the one told of by Albert Einstein in the answer he presumably gave when asked what weapons World War III would be fought with and he replied “I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

It has long been obvious that though the Pentagon, many on both sides of the aisle in Congress and throughout numerous other Cabinet departments and through numerous sectors and individuals in the United States support Israel and treat Israel as a friend. The animosity which originates from the Department of State sours much of the relations. Israel and the military and intelligence agencies share much information and their different avenues complement each other. There is a long history of Israeli innovation being returned to the Pentagon for incorporation on the United States equipment. One of the earliest of such improvements was what became known as the Super Sherman Tank which Israel redesigned the transmission, engine and upgraded main gun which prolonged the use of this weapons system for many additional years before finally being replaced in the early 1960s by the M60 Tank. One of the more recent and inexpensive upgrades came to the vaunted F-16 Jet Fighter which provided a means for the pilot at a glance to check his six, as looking for somebody coming up behind him as a threat is called. This upgrade consisted of attaching an extended automobile sport side-view mirror; the sport mirror was chosen to reduce drag. Sometimes the simplest of improvements prove just as valuable as retooling entire systems. Then there were the upgraded specifications to the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, many of which were eventually adopted by the United States. Israel also has often been the initial test case for United States weapons systems tests in actual combat, something the Israelis would rather avoid more of in the future but such is not always her choice. But even back in May of 1948 the State Department advised against the United States recognizing Israel when it declared its coming into existence as was also the advice of the Defense Department and virtually any Cabinet Member in President Truman’s staff as well as his closest advisors. One of the stories as to why President Truman went against such advice and recognized Israel immediately after their announced statehood was he was simply remembering the teachings his mother had instilled in him as a young child telling him the Biblical stories about the Hebrews, the Jews and the Exodus and that Israel was the Jewish ancient, and now modern, homelands. If such is a true story, then we thank Mrs. Truman, Harry Truman’s mother for such wisdom in raising her son while thanking Harry S. Truman for his fortitude in the face of raging advice to recognize the Jewish State.

 

An aside, does anybody know what the ‘S’ stood for as his middle name and the entire story behind it? Oddly enough, Harry Truman believed that all great men and especially Presidents had and always should have a middle initial even if they had no middle name from birth. Harry, for reasons unknown, chose ‘S’ for his middle initial though he never attached an actual middle name. This led some to call him, and not all that affectionately, Harry ‘S’ for nothing Truman. President Truman was also the President who first had a wooden nameplate which instead of his name stated, “The Buck Stops Here.” Sure is a far cry from recent Presidents who if they had a sign it would read, “The Buck Never Got Here and I Found Out About it Just Like Everybody Else in the News This Morning.”

 

The State Department animosities towards Israel is one item which cannot be laid at the feet of President Obama as the history of such difficulties may have started even before May of 1948 as they likely were opposed to the United Nations vote which suggested a plan by which Israel would have shared the sliver of land allowing for a Arab State next to the Palestinian Jewish State, as the Jews were called Palestinians in 1947-8 and on until the name was appropriated by Yasser Arafat in 1964 when founding the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) which the KGB assisted in forming three years before there were any occupied lands unless all of Israel is considered occupied lands, the claim of the PLO, Arafat and his trusted number two, Mahmoud Abbas. The KGB wrote the charter and fashioned the PLO to mirror the same exact claims made by the Zionists except substituted Arab for the word Jew and even went so far as to adopt much of the Old Testament as being Arab and not Jewish history just leaving out the names but keeping the events in a manner. The KGB plan was to use the same tactics and arguments the Jews had made as the Zionist Congress which gained the promise of the world, including the leader of the Arab world, King Faisal I bin Hussein bin Ali al-Hashimi, when the treaty of the San Remo Conference was adopted as part of the peace agreements ending World War I and also affirmed, adopted and enforced by the League of Nations through the Mandate System all of which was adopted subsequently by the United Nations under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The KGB saw the advantage of making the PLO the underdog making the identical claims the Zionists had put forward starting before the dawn of the Twentieth Century dating back to the 1897 founding of the Zionist Congress, the culmination of Theodore Herzl’s dream and life’s work which predated the founding by some years and cemented by the Alfred Dreyfuss conviction for treason for which he was later exonerated and the actual traitors found out after a prolonged agonizing series of events which was heightened and succeeded in very large part to Alfred’s wife, Lucie Eugénie, and the support by Émile Zola who wrote the scathing article, “J’Accuse” on January 13, 1898 (see article below).

 

 

J Accuse Emile Zola critique the wrongful conviction of Alfred Dreyfuss of treason solely as a Jew he made the perfect scapegoat behind which the General staff of the French Army could conceal perfidy of one of their own royalties as anti-Semitism played a high motivating factor in belief that Alfred Dreyfuss was guilty as Jews were rumored to be of untrustworthy nature and not loyal to the state. This was played up in his trial but in the end Alfred Dreyfuss became the only man ever released and exonerated after being imprisoned on Devil’s Island Prison.

This was played up in his trial but in the end Alfred Dreyfuss became the only man ever released and exonerated after being imprisoned on Devil’s Island Prison.

 

A full English translated transcript of the J’accuse article by Émile Zola is posted here.

 

Meanwhile, the little trip to review L’affair Dreyfuss simply shows that the United States Department of State is anything but alone in possessing such a history and with the current tone and direction in Europe, and even signs in the United States, has company in the present as well. There are those when the largest challenge facing the United States was Soviet Communism claimed that the State Department was staffed primarily with Soviet Communist sympathizers or possible agents, which was given great validation with the trial and conviction of Aldrich Ames and Alger Hiss. Much of the rest of the attitudes of the public that there was a definitive Soviet strain running through the State Department also made sense as the people most desired and required by the State Department were people fluent in Russian and most of the applicants historically had been leftists which immediately sends up red flags (all puns intended) that large numbers of Communist populated the State Department. Now the emphasis for the State Department is the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Muslim nations including non-Arab states such as Iran, the Philippines, Malaysia and other Asian Islamic majority nations plus some of the Northern African and Horn of Africa Islamic nations. This has brought a number of Arabic and Farsi speaking individuals into the State Department and, as can be expected, the conspiracy theories are all about the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, Iranian, Saudi and a myriad of other Islamic infiltrators taking over where the Communist infiltrators left off in the who has infiltrated the State Department paranoia. Of course one must keep in mind that just because one has paranoid delusions that one is not actually correct in their suspicions. With either theory, whether it be Soviet agents or Islamic agents infiltrating the State Department, either or both were not exactly close friends of Israel; one might even venture to place them as enemies of the Jewish State.

 

The suspicion that the State Department has a distinct dislike of Israel does not need much investigation to realize the reality of such accusations. Add the current White House and the fact that an Iranian born person is currently a close advisor to the President and the tracing of a small but not insignificant number of Muslim Brotherhood related, linked or having strings which lead to the Brotherhood individuals employed by the White House in different advisory and support positions explains the reasoning that President Obama had as his plan from day one to, in his world, “put some daylight between the United States and Israel,” and he has succeeded in this endeavor with great achievements. The President’s other claim upon entering the White House of making Iran a member of the clubs of world nations and placing them as the leading influence in the Middle East as well as the rest of MENA and, if the Iranians get their greatest of desires, far more including Europe and beyond. When President Obama initially stated his desire to bring Iran into the clubs of nations few expected at first that one of those clubs was the nuclear weapons club, one of the more exclusive clubs soon to become the fastest growing club with new members galore within the next eighteen months or less. The world may as well face the facts that unless another nation steps forward to enforce the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty (NPT) then not only will Iran be nuclear armed within the rest of the term of President Obama as they are highly unlikely to bet the house and the opportunity to become a nuclear power on the next President honoring the promises made by President Obama and otherwise treating them in the same vein as he treated those of his predecessors, President George W. Bush in particular. If this is the Iranian deadline one can bet that it is everyone’s deadline.

 

Meanwhile, the State Department is patting each other on the back for another fantastic success just like the success they made in North Korea. One need understand that the State Department is always shocked when the other side of these actually very weak agreements fails to even bother to take ten minutes aside and rejoice their victory before setting about to break every promise and stipulation in the deal they just signed. Perhaps if we made it a rule to sign all agreements the morning of the day observed as their weekend then their employees tasked with enforcing agreements would take at least the remainder of the signing day off before working to invalidate every last word including ‘of’, ‘the’ and ‘and’ of that agreement. There is an exception, and that is Israel. Israel is held by the State Department to a standard unparalleled throughout all of human history. The State Department does not only hold Israel to the terms of every agreement but even believes Israel should also be forced to commit to upholding State Department inter-office memorandums and bullet points. These are not parts of treaties or agreements; these are simply the dreams and other machinations from the dark recesses of the twisted minds of people who really do not like Israel. The animosity towards Israel from the State Department is palpable. This was made evident during the administration of President George W. Bush amongst others before him back to November 29, 1947, or at the least May 15, 1948.

 

To give a prime example of the brilliance in making the world that little bit extra tough for Israel, the State Department will always be there with its version of tough love, let us look at the foremost action taken at largely the behest of the State Department as communicated to President George W. Bush by then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. We need to remember that George W. Bush, despite his insistence that Israel be divided further ignoring international law and treaties which give Israel the undivided lands west of the Jordan River. Also in plans to assist Israel by applying the deeply rooted, if not thought out, plan that democracy instituted allowing the citizenry to vote will produce leaders who will be willing to work towards the same goals as the Western Democracies, all will result in more fanfare than progress or change. Never mind that the people in many of these nations and populations have little if any concept on freedom, independence of the ballot box and anonymous voting rights meaning their recorded vote theoretically is untraceable back to them or any other individual. They do not believe that their cast vote matters unless it is cast to retain those in power otherwise when they return to power life will not be comfortable, and one can rely on the promise that they will return to power and their vengeance will be swift and brutal. Only if they are replaced by somebody even more brutal and strong enough to resist any and all attempts to steal their position by coup does this new ruler remain in power. This was recently made very evident when Egyptian President Morsi despite attempting to replace some of the ranking Generals in the military was unable to rid himself of Commander of the Armies Sisi who removed him, set up an interim government run by military council sans himself and while he appeared bold and favored to be the next President. This came to pass and in his first year as President of Egypt he has removed much of the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood as well as tried former President Morsi for criminal intents thus guaranteeing he will never return to office.

 

When President George W. Bush insisted that the new election in the Palestinian autonomous regions of Gaza, Judea, and Samaria allow anybody and everybody to be permitted to field candidates, even Hamas, Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda of Gaza, the various criminal gangs and on and on; Arab Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas protested vehemently but to no avail; Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warned exactly as had Abbas and with the same results; everybody who knew anything about the Middle East would have realized that Hamas would likely defeat Fatah and the other so-called moderates would lose. Abbas even made sure his office was not included in the coming fiasco. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice echoed the concept that elections would solve all the ills and with proper representation and the terrorists embarrassed sufficiently and out of power as no rational people would choose terrorists, especially known terrorists to lead their society as to do such would be madness. This line of reason was solidly purported by the State Department, the source of this misbegotten concept that democracy, especially democracy where there is absolutely no history of independent thought and even the predominant religion was based on surrender of the self to the whole we were told, the entire world was told, that democracy cures all ills. Well, guess what, Hamas won and won easily. Their electoral victory was muted as much as Abbas was able which may have partially led to the Hamas coup to take complete control in Gaza. Now it is that same State Department which calls for Israel to allow these “Freedom Flotillas” to pass unmolested through the arms sea embargo enforced by both Egypt and Israel claiming that it could do no harm. Israel, quite rightfully, maintains that once a single such flotilla was granted free pass the next ones would be chocked full of arms. Still the State Department is right there looking over Israeli shoulders for the slightest innuendo that Israel may be about to act is done in a manner which the State Department current directives and policy statements. As far as the State Department is concerned, Israel is a wholly owned subsidiary of the United States and is ruled over as a protectorate under State Department management. The State Department has been working endlessly and with unceasing efforts to undermine every Israeli attempt to mitigate the Iranian nuclear threat. It has perhaps the State Department and White House concerted efforts to prevent Israel from taking any action. They leaked the information that Israel had arranged to lease for training purposes a pair of Azerbaijan airfields which had the immediate effect the Israeli hope to use that military option President Obama and the State Department not only were dead set on keeping said military plan firmly cemented on the table but to also cement any Israeli hope to terminate the Iranian immediate nuclear threat their own method. There was another leak; this time from the White House ending the hopes being granted overfly permission by Saudi Arabia. Every time there has been a plan it has been blocked either by the White House or the State Department. It was a report from the State Department which advised every President to demand that Israel return all of the property she may have gained even in defensive wars where she was the attacked and thus aggrieved nation and had every right under international laws to retain any and all lands gained in such a defensive war such as were deemed necessary to provide for defense or that had other valuable resources which would aid in future efforts and discourage their enemies from again bringing war against the aggrieved nation. But instead of the winner getting to dictate the peace, the State Department with valuable assists from the European Union and its member nations, along with the Arab League and the aggressor nations have an almost universal privilege at determining where the boundaries will be drawn almost exclusively placing the lines in some manner forcing Israel all the way back to her previous position reinstating the Green Line placing Israel into jeopardy once more.

 

Further proof was provided during last summer’s Operation Defensive Edge where the State Department was assigned final clearance for any and all shipments of arms to Israel including guaranteed by documented arms agreements, the kind President Obama claims he was arranging with Iran with one very significant difference, the Israeli arms agreements had been ratified by Congress receiving near unanimous support from Congress. This one extra signoff should have been merely a formality but instead became a complete arms embargo for the duration of the conflict. The coordinated assault meant to force Israel into a defenseless position as she might have run out of munitions, in particular JDAMs and other smart weapons which minimize collateral damage as best as possible which weapons are vital to reduce civilian casualties which Hamas and Islamic Jihad and other groups fighting against Israel who locate their emplacements instead of out in open areas use the heavily populated cities, and Gaza had large areas of farmlands (as depicted in map below showing population distribution in the Gaza Strip) and is not packed border to border with people. Central Israel where Hamas aimed most of their M 75 and the M 302 missiles has a greater population density than does Gaza. Jerusalem neighborhoods would rival Gaza City for population density as would Akko but these facts never quite make it onto the facts sheet the State Department puts out for the media and news shows to utilize as presumably unbiased reporting.

 

 

Population density map of the Gaza Strip where the display shows large open areas with little population where Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other combatants could operate without threat to the population but instead choose to place the entirety of their rocket and missile systems within Gaza City, Khan Yunis, Deir al-Bala, and Jabalia Camp. The Israelis, on the other hand, set up well outside the inhabited areas such as Sderot to assure the civilians are in minimal danger though these efforts are wasted as Hamas and Islamic Jihad fire their missiles and rockets and mortars into the Israeli civilian centers hoping to murder noncombatants through their actions, both Israeli and Gazan which doubles the war crimes committed by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest.

Israel has no choice but to believe that Israel may not ever return to the trust level shared for almost half a century. This may mean that the F-35 Jet Fighters will be the first and last stealthy airframes purchased from the United States. As another source would just as likely to become problematic with time, perhaps some serious consideration should be given to produce all vital military components and complete systems within Israel dependent only on the outside world for raw materials such as iron, carbon and fuel. The designs and manufacture should be completed at home. We have the ability and the facilities as is proven by the drone manufacturing where the Hermes 900 drone which is virtually the size of a modern fighter just differently powered and unmanned. On that note we should point out that going pilotless with each fighter pilot placed on the ground nearby or in a squad aircraft which would carry a set of up to twenty-five pilots with each controlling his aircraft inside an escort plane sitting twenty to thirty miles from the deployed aircraft keeping them safe while allowing greater maneuverability for their aircraft no longer subjected to human limitations. Each aircraft is also set automatically to using defensive maneuvers and returning to its home base or returning to the arena should its pilot regain control. Such a system would maximize safety for pilots and Israel could use their advanced drone knowledge to accomplish this system before the rest of the world if only we would take the leap and have the faith in our engineers and technicians to work out such a system where each pilot sits in a mock-up canopy with all the controls just as they are in the aircraft just like the trainers are today except this system does not need to try and mimic the movements and G-forces. The sooner we stress this as Israel’s future air force the sooner it will be the Israeli Air Force (IAF). What’s the saying, “The future is now!” Why not make that the motto of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the Army, Navy, Air Force, Border Patrol and even Law Enforcement, time to get smart, efficient and a step ahead.

Lord George Weidenfeld Repays Debt of Life and Other News

 

With all of the threats of war, nuclear proliferation and other threats to Israel and the rest of the world, especially in the Middle East, it was absolutely refreshing to read a story in the Times of Israel titled Holocaust survivor repays ultimate debt via rescue of Syrian Christians about life and the repayment of the gift of life from World War II and a Jew, Lord George Weidenfeld, who was saved from Nazi tyranny and certain death by groups of Christians repaying that debt by rescue of forty-two Syrian Christian families. Under a veil of utmost secrecy, the one-hundred-forty-nine people were taken from lands under the control of the Islamic State’s tyrannical oppression and threat to all Christians and even other Muslims found to be of other than their strict Sunni doctrines, even other Sunni found to be lacking or deficient in their devoutness by any act whether intentional or merely singular lapse, and taken to Poland via Lebanon in a rescue of which hopefully further such are planned. The short version reads more like a Hollywood script where starting in 1938 Austria a group of Christians saved nineteen-year-old George Weidenfeld whisking him out of Vienna to the United Kingdom. Obviously the young lad made good, after all he has been knighted and thus the title Lord George Weidenfeld (pictured below). He is now repaying that debt and the first installment was the saving of these forty-two families. Please visit and read the even at the expense of reading on here as the Times deserves the hits and I am but an unworthy messenger. The specifics which could be made public are to be found in the Times telling.

Quoting 95-year-old Lord George Weidenfeld, who is spearheading the venture, from the article reporting his statement explaining the actions his group initiated with valuable assistance by the British branch of the Jewish National Fund, “We have been deeply moved by the plight of Christians in conflict-torn Middle East countries, and we are supporting the transfer of Christian families to safe havens where they can lead normal lives,” Lord Weidenfeld stated further, “In the 1930s thousands of Jews, mainly women and children, were helped by Christians who took enormous personal risks to save them from certain death. We owe a debt of gratitude.” There is far more including comments from leaders of the British branch of the Jewish National Fund as well as from Sir Charles Hoare, who has advised the Barnabas Fund not to mention the rest of the story.

 

I wanted to take a reprieve from the constant drumbeat of largely discussing the horrors which are the news of the world today as it has always been. The old adage of “If it bleeds, it leads” still holds true today. Take a quick glance at the newsstand and read a few above the fold headlines and it is almost always the same, death, injury, horrific events and worse. Stories such as the above seldom make it into Section A of print media. Perhaps that is the one advantage of the online experience, you search the news and you usually get what you were seeking and it is as if it was the lead on page one as to view the rest you need click the news logo to see the actual front page, but why ruin the idea that the feel-good story, the heroic story, the repayment of life with life story as the front page in your version of the news. But unfortunately we need talk about the threats, the world that we are leaving for our children, grandchildren and for the very fortunate to have lived long enough, the great-grandchildren. Sure we take relief every now and then for a story like the above or to talk of great achievements in medicine which make horrific disease treatable or completely preventable or those developments that enhance and prolong life as well as youth and the ever fascinating exploration of space, the final frontier unless you are talking to a marine biologist, then the last frontier is the Mariana Trench and especially the Challenger Deep at the southern end of that trench which is approximately one mile deeper than Mount Everest is above sea level, simply put; if Mount Everest sat placed in the middle of the Challenger Deep you would need to dive over one mile down to reach the summit of Everest and continue the near six miles further to the deepest point of Challenger Deep. The first explorers to descend to the deepest part of the oceans, the Challenger Deep, were U.S. Navy Lt. Don Walsh and Swiss oceanographer and engineer Jacques Piccard aboard the bathyscaphe Trieste in 1960 and were the only two men to view literally the bottom of the world any time before the twenty-first century. Now one more intrepid explorer has joined the names of humans to reach and view the Challenger Deep when in March of 2012, Cameron, diving solo in Deepsea Challenger, replicated the U.S. Navy’s Bathyscaphe Trieste’s 1960 dive of nearly 11 kilometers (7 miles) into Challenger Deep. Now both the Deepsea Challenger and the Trieste are now on display at the Navy Yard housed in the National Museum of the United States Navy, a fitting tribute.

 

Now, catching up, we return to that horrific front page story we had not yet talked about, the Chattanooga, Tennessee shooting rampage which left four Marines killed and three others wounded as well as a police officer shot in the ankle during the attack. The four Marines were identified as Carson Holmquist, Thomas Sullivan, Skip Wells and David Wyatt. Their Islamist murderer, Kuwaiti-born, Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, age 24, and not a year more, reported to have initially shot at the Armed Forces Career Center off Lee Highway from his convertible around 10:45 that morning then drove to the Naval Reserve support center, where he killed the four Marines and wounded another three. Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez was killed after police intervened and shot him dead. We would like to thank police officers who assisted in ending this saga taking the appropriate steps to protect the community and further to save the nation from what would have been a mockery of the memory of the four upstanding pillars of their communities, these four marines, as during a trial we would have been subjected to the news about the unfortunate, troubled, conflicted and complicated life which the perpetrator tuned soulful and reflective victim of the pressures and discords of being a follower of Islam in the intolerant community replete with often unnecessary hatefulness shown their community oft appearing to ostracize its members. We would have faced attempts to explain the twisted logic that the Marines represented the force, often disproportional force the United States projected during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan adding to the uncomfortable influence American military members who spent downtime resting in Kuwait either incoming or leaving the theater making the clash of cultures unnecessarily displayed. There would have been numerous articles in the mainstream media attempting to justify the unjustifiable. Meanwhile, these Marines leave behind families, loved ones and numerous others whose lives they have graced. Pictures of these people and the Marines who loved them and are still loved by them can be viewed here as well as some additional information.

 

This story links to the ramifications of the recently completed negotiations that formulated the path to nuclear parity with the United States and other members of the nuclear arms capable nations for Iran. This agreement which dare not be perceived in any way as being an actual bonafide treaty has numerous provisions which will slowly leak into the public discourse be it a little too late to afford changes. While the Congress has sixty days in which to review the one-hundred-fifty-nine pages that we edited removing much of the superfluous formatting which we are sure was a part of the confusion interjected in order to mask some of the more immediately threatening as well as down the road allowances and impositions on the United States and Europe which can be reviewed at link below:

Entire Edited for ease of Reading Transcript of Iran Nuclear Agreement with the P5+1 Group

Some of the more detrimental giveaways included in the agreement we pointed out but need repeating as well as additional revelations. There is the offer by both the European Union and the United States to provide expert assistance in removing any detrimental software which the Iranian systems may still have on their control networks and even individual computers. Included in some of the detrimental software, some refer to them as viruses and other have more descriptive names for them, is the Stuxnet invasive software which permitted cyber-attacks repeatedly and potentially still provided these options if remnants of the code remained after Iran supposedly cleansed their software. Additionally this will include updating the Iranian systems with anti-virus and other protective software some of which was likely written in Israel and adopted by the United States cyber-security governmental institutions. The United States has promised to also assist Iran with designing superior centrifuge technology bringing them on par with United States enrichment capabilities. Further security systems and protocols will be provided by the P5+1 nations to Iran as well as other wondrous enhancements to the Iranian uranium refinement systems. But wait, there’s more.

 

Within five to eight years the Iranians will be freed from restrictions on buying and selling military systems and hardware. Since the Iranians firmly believe that the agreement meant to say these releases from all restrictions are immediate, we can assume that Iran will at a minimum use some discretion in their procurement of arms as if they found it necessary to avoid direct signs of ignoring presumed restrictions, something they have had ample practice and become quite accomplished at putting in practice. Then there is the one-hundred-fifty-billion signing bonus as I am sure President Obama thought for a moment he was signing a new forward for the Chicago Bulls. Further into the maze where items are often written in officialese for lack of clarity, which is actually quite specific and clear when compared to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), the United States agreed that all efforts are to be taken to protect Iranian military secrets, to avoid actions which might be interpreted as being too invasive, especially on sites which have been determined by Iran to be limited access points beyond which military activities take place.

 

So, the area where weapons are being produced, potentially nuclear weapons are being fashioned can be made off-limits to weapons inspectors thus shielding such production. This production could include all or part of this sequence to a modern thermonuclear device. Such an undertaking begins with taking raw uranium ore dissolving the uranium into Yellowcake also known as Uranium Hexafluoride ( UF6 ), then placing the gaseous mixture into the first centrifuge in a sufficiently long cascade such that at the end of the process the gas contains highly-enriched uranium (HEU) of around ninety-five-percent, also known as weapons grade. A few steps more and one has sufficient HEU to manufacture a fissile core which is useable as is for a simple fission bomb or with a small amount more and other rarified such as lithium deuteride fuel for the secondary core, the polystyrene foam or other material which can be transformed into a plasma with great expansive properties for surrounding the secondary core and the special metals used to focus the forces by having exacting specifications and tooling. Getting all the components tooled to tight specifications and virtually no room for error and then when detonated the high explosives the primary uranium bombards the core while the heat transforms the polystyrene into a plasma providing additional compressions where the lithium deuteride fuel is highly compressed and heated to temperatures approaching those of the core of the sun. The lithium-6 atom splits into one tritium atom and one alpha particle when heated and bombarded by protons released from the primary atomic bomb detonation. Finally the fusion reaction is instrumented forcing the produced tritium and the deuterium to fuse producing more neutrons and a great amount of additional neutrons which causes the Uranium 238 to undergo fusion causing even more energy and energy here means explosion.

 

Just as the invasion of Iraq on the intel that Saddam Hussein had an active nuclear program despite sanction placed on his regime after the first Gulf War caused several regimes to come clean and actually assist IAEA and others to remove their related weapons sites, the surrender in-Toto by President Obama will now have the opposite affect causing nuclear programs to sprout throughout the world, especially in the third world where might still makes right and they live more in the strategies of Machiavelli than Sun Tzu or Clausewitz where the sublime ruled over the direct fist-in-the-face tactics of the Prince. This will be dangerous enough should even drug cartels find and re-appropriate nuclear weapons from a national armory to their personal armory but the spread of nuclear arms in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will mean the next time some terrorist group lights the fuse on an additional conflict that the result may be far more civilian casualties than the United Nations ever could ignore. Despite the possibility coming to fruition that Hamas, Islamic State or Hezballah procure or be gifted a nuclear device, or worse, a thermonuclear device, and manage to detonate it from the top of a Tel Aviv eight layer parking garage in center city at two-thirty in the afternoon, exactly what would constitute a disproportional response from Israel. Would Israel dropping one of their weapons over Tehran should the bomb be traced back from Hamas or Hezballah to Iran be considered disproportional? Would a dull coordinated assault on, should the bomb come from Gaza and Hamas, a full on assault from the north to the southern end of Gaza pushing every man, woman, child, goat, sheep, dog, cat, puppy and kitten until the final two-hundred meters were all that was left and then offer to pay every family or individual cash willing to relocate somewhere outside the lands between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River never to return, or if it be Hezballah a full on assault pressing every living soul with minimal exception across the Litani River, would these be disproportional? My bet is immediately after such a calamity the entire world would be threatening Israel to be calm and not to overreact and to wait until the United Nations had addressed the situation. Are there any takers on a bet that this would be the immediate response from the world? Let us first pray that such a scenario ever comes to pass or a nuclear device ever find its way into being used ever again. The horrors and devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the second most disturbing results of World War II with the death camps being the most horrific of horrors.

 

The chance of a war in the MENA area where nuclear weapons are used as the first strike weapon of choice or the immediate retaliator weapon as the assaulted nation knows their military might is absolutely insufficient to wage a war with their aggressor and that their sole chance to survive is to end the war with an immediate strike with nuclear weapons. Whatever the reason, at some point one side will see the writing on the wall and be facing a devastating takeover from a hostile force which if their main religious observances are different could mean inquisition style cleansing of the population and another massacre for religious purity. When, it is generally agreed that it has been answered by the agreement reached earlier this week, then that result will very likely be tied directly into the surrender before the Iranian path to their nuclear weapons and a signal that the United States no longer enforces the NPT (Nuclear NonProliferation Treaty) and that the road to nuclear weapons has been blown wide open. Does anybody doubt that if the Sudan had nuclear weapon amongst its arsenal that they would have delayed using it in the southlands for one minute? What if Boko Haram were to get their hands on some nuclear weapons, what would be the fate of Nigeria, Cameroon and the rest of that region. The horrific scenarios are enough to boggle one’s mind while frightening their socks off. These few little mentions in the agreement along with a release of funds almost beyond reason in amounts that when included in the added revenues now that Iran can sell oil to anybody at any time brings the totals well into trillions of Euros or Dollars, the measuring currency does not diminish the amount. Even if the terms were to freeze Iran for fifteen years, a full five years beyond the usually touted number of a decade, does anybody honestly believe that anything will have changed, that they will not be having their “Death to America rallies across the lands and led by the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei or even the next Supreme Leader will honestly change their positions. The only change would be their no longer chanting “Death to Israel” because their news programs had already announced Israel was destroyed. This may not mean Israel was even scratched but they were told that the news continuing as if Israel still existed was all part of a Zionist plot and just as Egypt celebrates their glorious victories over Israel in June of 1967 and October of 1973, Iran will pick an empty date where they have a prolonged break between holidays and at the opposite end of the year from Ramadan to celebrate the day Israel died. Israel still exists and not a single blade of grass was scorched but the Iranians remember the gripping coverage lasting almost three days before ultimate victory by a super-secret military group even more clandestine and more highly trained than even the Quds forces. The Iranians will immediately be allowed to import advanced missiles and the United States is promised to assist Iran in their development of anti-missile and anti-aircraft and anti-cruise missile systems in order to secure Iranian airspace from any potential attack on their nuclear sites. They will also be free to purchase tanks, aircraft, advanced fighters, advanced naval vessels, and any other weapons systems they desire with very few limitations, so few that nobody appears is aware of any. This will likely lead to Iran possessing ICBMs capable of striking anywhere on the planet within about twenty-five meters accuracy which with nuclear weapons and cluster munitions is close enough. Is there a term for this kind of complete and utter fecklessness combined with malicious intent against one’s own country and arming the enemy and releasing or easing almost to the point of release sanction and implementing the most superficial inspection routines which were tried with more vigorous implementation against North Korea which led them to nuclear weapons in under a year despite their research at that time being less advanced than is the Iranian program, is there a term for such? Of course there is. Traitorous, treason, perfidy, treachery, sedition, double-crossing, double-dealing, and I believe that name Judas Iscariot also went with such actions though Judas performed a greater betrayal than simply a nation; but going forth I am sure that when somebody betrays their country they will be able to add the name of Barack Obama to the names such as Guy Fawkes, Benedict Arnold, Vidkun Quisling, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Mordechai Vanunu, Ephialtes of Trachis; and now history will tell if Barack Hussein Obama will be added to this list of notables.
