Jews Stirring Anti-Semitism Protesting Trump

 

You open the newspaper, you turn on the evening news, you watch the Sunday talking heads and the story is the same, Jews on the front lines protesting against the elections of President Trump. They are there carrying the “Not My President” and the “Not Our President” signs, the front lines against the seven nation hold on refugees and immigrants until a proper vetting program can be initiated, and the lead in every protest on every campus and in every city. These are Open Orthodox, Conservatives, Reform and Reconstructionist Jews as well as the few Hassidic Jews who firmly believe that Israel should not have been founded until the Messiah has come and established it for the Jews. All of these Jews have one thing in common, they are in stark contrast to the vast majority of Israeli Jews and their fellow Jews in Israel stand confused and somewhat shocked. How do I know this? Because that is the number one question I hear every morning at services. My fellow congregants ask me to explain what these Jews are so upset over and why are they fighting against everything which Israelis believe has been the greatest thing to come along for Israel since Truman recognized Israel in 1948 and the military cooperation between our two nations over the past sixty plus years now, since the Six Day War woke Lyndon Banes Johnson to the fact that Israel just might serve as a good ally for the United States. Their confusion is palpable and can only leave me sad when I finally tell them the truths.

 

The reality is best made for them to visualize when I explain that the Conservative Synagogue my wife and I attended, for lack of an Orthodox one available where we resided in Oklahoma, was all but exactly identical in atmosphere and service style to the Reform Synagogue I had attended at times during my teen years. Even more troubling for them and my telling is that the number one question we received when congregants learned we were making Aliyah and moving to Israel was, “Why would you want to go there?” and “What is wrong with you?” and lastly a simple, “Why?” as if we would fully understand that last single word expression of disbelief. This was the standard set of queries with the exception of the few real friends we had made who were fellow conservatives politically. These friends had already requested we keep their political aligning with the Republicans to ourselves as everybody knew my wife and I were Republicans and very conservative politically as we broadcast it not being worried about making friends. What did turn out to be interesting was that after a while the very liberal Rabbi had to reconcile that he and I have some similar ideas on Torah and human rights, something he found astonishing. At least the Rabbi was happy about our moving to Israel hopefully because he at least also loved Israel and not because we were leaving, we believe it to be the former.

 

I explain to my Israeli friends that the vast majority of Jews have little if any affinity for Israel and simply wish Israel would give the Palestinians whatever it is that will make them happy, a state, whatever, just satisfy them at any cost so that Israel stops being an embarrassment for them. Their liberal, actually leftist in all too many cases, was far more important to them than was the survival of Israel or the lives of Israelis. They lost their affections for Israel decades ago once Israel pulled out their victory in the October 1973 Yom Kippur War after being caught completely off guard and flat-footed. The fact that Israel was able to repulse the attacks in that war gave the American Jewish community the feeling that Israel had become a superpower all but equal to the United States and impervious to Arab aggressions. Many younger American Jews even believe that Israel is probably four, five, six or even ten times its actual size as they believe it remains the size it had when it still held the Sinai Peninsula. These younger Jews are really geography-challenged and have little if any actual clue of reality and if they were to be told that Israel is barely the size of New Jersey they would be more likely to believe New Jersey had grown to the size of Texas than change their unfounded views about Israel. As far as many American Jews are concerned their leftist values are far more important than any Jewish homeland as for them America is the new Promised Land.

 

This article may receive a number of denunciations because these Jews are also very sensitive when called out as they are the good people and are always beyond reproach. Their beliefs are always above question and of the highest morality. Their belief is Judaism is all about what they call Tikkun Olam. This they define as repair the world through converting the world to their socialist perfect world where the government solves every problem. They do not see Tikkun Olam as the perfecting and improvement of the self in order to make the world better. They see themselves as already as near to perfect as is humanly possible and the real problem is making everybody else to be like them. If everybody would simply believe as they do, the world would become a perfect world. To them when they see Israel in the news it distresses them not because they feel for Israel but because the problems Israel has reflects on them making their lives difficult as they feel they are identified with guilt rubbing off from Israeli misdeeds. They perceive Israeli actions defending herself from terrorism to be unnecessary as if Israel would just bend to the Arab demands then there would be peace. Their desire is for all problems to go away the fastest and easiest means possible, and that to them most often is Israel compromising because their leftist newspapers and newscasts all blame Israel so it must be true.

 

They also see the government headed by Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to be exactly as their news media portray it, an extreme right wing settler crazies who refuse to give the Palestinians their rightful homeland. They believe that Israel conquered Palestine in 1967 and some even believe that Israel was a European colonialist enterprise from before 1948 and that there are no non-European Jews in Israel. There is no way to convince them of the reality that approximately half of Israeli Jews are from Arab nations of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) as well as India, Ethiopia and other places where lost tribes of Jews have been rescued. They believe that Israel is an Apartheid nation which denies Arabs the right to vote, work in certain fields, and refuse to allow Arabs free access without facing checkpoints at every intersection, well, not every intersection but too many. They look at you like you are trying to tell them Martians live in Israel when you tell them the Arab Israelis have every right that the Jewish Israelis have and that Israel has one of the largest Baha’I populations in the world as well as Druze and Bedouins who also have full rights and vote in Israeli elections are doctors, nurses, teachers, and in the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. Speaking the truth to these Jews and expecting them to accept a single word is like speaking to a brick wall and expecting it to move out of your way. These Jews are more likely to believe the lies peddled by CAIR than they are to believe us when we visit from Israel with wonderful stories about how warm and wonderful life in Israel actually is and how we love living here, but they believed we were a bit odd to begin with.

 

The reality that Israelis need to learn to accept is that outside the true Orthodox Jewish communities, the Jews in America place the Democrat Party ahead of Israel in all things. The American Jews will accept that Keith Ellison is a perfect choice for the leadership of the Democrat Party and will see him as posing no threat to their existence. Should somebody point out that Keith Ellison supports Louis Farrakhan and his views that Jews are evil people who are barely human and deserve to be refused rights and that many of those who follow Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam actually desire to murder every Jew in America and some even the world they would call them a liar and demand their ostracization from membership in any social or political group potentially even the Synagogue except that would make them appear hateful. The fact that their beliefs about Israel easily make them appear to be hateful though they could not possibly be such as they are the perfect and beautiful people who are so full of love and compassion without a hateful bone in their bodies, ask them, they will gladly inform you and each will attest for the others. Theirs is a wonderfully close-knit community which supports all the correct causes and is by far the most acceptive people who support gay marriage, the entire LGBQT set of causes, the acceptance of refugees from Syria, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Sudan and everywhere else across the Islamic World as it is in turmoil and believe that people should have the right to use whichever bathroom suits their mood each day and that gender-free bathrooms are a necessity and President Obama was the most Constitutional and perfect President greater than Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson combined, especially those detestable slave owners Washington and Jefferson.

 

Inform them that Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Iran, Egypt and the remainder of the Arab world have not appropriated a single refugee while the few nations which have had their borders crossed by refugees have corralled these refugees into camps surrounded by razor wire and armed guards with the expectations that these refugees will either be returned to their nation of origin or allowed to emigrate to Europe or elsewhere in the developed world but never a single one allowed to be taken in by another Arab nation, this they would be aghast and in complete disbelief. They would essentially murder the messenger rather than check to authenticate the message because it transgresses their firm belief that the Islamic world is above reproach and the people who might support President Trump’s temporary, that is temporary, holding of refugees and immigrants from seven unstable and terror hotbed nations with failed governments until a method for proper vetting can be put in place are uneducated simpletons. Such news would upset their world and as such it must be false because they have such a great grasp of everything which is passing along the world each day that such news which goes so completely against their world view thus impossible. Still, why is it that none of the Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia have taken in even a single refugee from Syria and the other six nations which are on President Trump’s travel restrictions and the United States should simply open the doors wide with no restrictions? These are not the tired, the poor, the huddled masses but the victims of dysfunctional states which have been all but destroyed who may be infiltrated by unknown numbers of Islamic State terrorists, al-Qaeda terrorists, Muslim Brotherhood operatives, and unknown other terror suspects which vetting could detect. Perhaps Trump should make a deal that once the one hundred thousand airconditioned tents Saudi Arabia had set up in the dessert for the Haj and used them for Arab refugees then the United States will start taking the overflow afterwards (see image below). The American Jews probably find the news about all those tents with air conditioning which Saudi Arabia could use for refugees something they have been unaware existed, but that would not be any reason nor would the rejection of these same refugees by Saudi Arabia should not affect the United States policies on these same refugees. One must wonder why the Saudi Arabia Royal Family is so against taking in these refugees, so strange.

 

one hundred thousand airconditioned tents Saudi Arabia to accommodate pilgrims on Hajj each has kitchen bathroom fireproof and never intended for refugees

There exists one hundred thousand really large tents Saudi Arabia uses to accommodate pilgrims on Hajj and each has a kitchen, bathroom, fire wood stove, as well as an air-conditioner and they never were intended for refugees as they are far too nice, or at least that is the Saudi Royal Family’s view.

Israel Further Divided is Israel No More

 

How many times can Israel be divided down from the original British Mandate until there is no longer any viable Israel? Would taking away seventy-eight percent of the lands make Israel untenable? History would indicate that was not the case as Israel survived two Arab mass attacks to try and eradicate her. The division was made when the Palestinian Arab State of Jordan was granted to be ruled by the Hashemites and Israel was left with the twenty-two percent of the Mandate west of the Jordan River. The first assault came within hours of the State of Israel being declared established where half a dozen Arab States attacked across every border and yet Israel survived. Again in June of 1967 Israel was attacked across her three land borders by Syria, Egypt and Jordan and survived. Then again in 1973 Israel was again attacked by Egypt and Syria but survived due to still holding the Sinai Peninsula otherwise Israel might have been lost. But with Israel having returned all of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt for the promise of a future of peace, a cold peace, but peace just the same, well, thus far; Israel was shrunk back to controlling merely the twenty-two percent of the original British Mandate west of the Jordan River. Still, this was too much land for Jews to hold according to the rest of the world, at least all of the world which was making any noise. What then followed is frightening but nowhere near as frightening as what the future potentially holds.

 

Since March 26, 1979, when the Camp David Accords was formally signed and peace broke out between Egypt and Israel, the Sinai Peninsula was returned to Egyptian control with the proviso that it remains limited in military powers being stationed by Egypt with any exceptions as required being established with the full knowledge and permission of Israel. This peace has been a cold peace much of the time but both nations have kept the agreements. There was a short period where the peace appeared to be potentially in danger while the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi won an initial election after President Obama assisted in forcing President Mubarak from power. The Egyptian people, or at least a fair percentage, appeared to protest the ill effects of the Muslim Brotherhood rule and the Egyptian military returned to power with President Sisi being elected after the Military removed President Morsi and the Muslim brotherhood from power. President Sisi did at least resign from his position as head of the Egyptian Military before running for President but his election was assured by his leadership in removing the Muslim Brotherhood from power. Israel and Egypt remain at peace and presently there are additional allowances for Egyptian military activity in the Sinai Peninsula to address terrorist activity which has blossomed with Islamic State, Muslim Brotherhood and various other terror and criminal enterprises taking control of much of the Sinai Peninsula.

 

During President George W. Bush Administration and his plan for Israel-Palestinian Peace named the Roadmap, Israel was pressured in removing every Jewish settlement, industry and other presence from Gaza and a number of other communities in northern regions of Judea and Samaria in order to allow for the Palestinian Authority to be able to establish semiautonomous rule in Judea and Samaria and complete autonomy to establish a working state in the surrendered lands of Gaza to prove that the establishment of a Palestinian State was not only possible but would pose no threat to Israel and could live peacefully side-by-side. The Bush Administration also issued a letter granting fourteen guarantees to Israel as a protection for their taking what could prove to be a huge risk if it went wrong. Since then President Obama basically voided every guarantee granted by that letter claiming there was no promise or guarantee despite a near unanimous approval of these promises by the congress. President Obama’s destruction of those promises was done unilaterally without any council or consent by Congress. Further, within two years the Palestinian Authority lost control of the Gaza to Hamas who has utilized it as a staging area for launching rocket attacks, mortar fire, sniper shootings mostly at Israeli civilian targets and three wars and counting in order to end increasing rocket fire which was ramped up almost in a regularly scheduled timeframe which shortened with each confrontation. Further, the range and accuracy of the rockets have grown significantly placing much, if not all, of Israel within range of rockets fired from the very same locations which had been under the control of the Jewish communities which were removed from Gaza. All told the surrender of Gaza to the Palestinian control turned out to fulfill every single worst possible scenario as predicted by many Zionists and nationalists. Despite the debacle which resulted from the Gaza withdrawal, the world is demanding that Israel now withdraw completely from Judea and Samaria allowing the Palestinian authority another opportunity for displaying their ability to rule and live at peace with Israel. They are demanding this despite, or possibly because of, the fact that Mahmoud Abbas has pledged to use any such withdrawal as an opportunity to destroy the remainder of Israel and murder every Jew residing between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. The world claims that he does not really mean his threats and Israel should give him the opportunity to prove he does not desire to destroy Israel, kill every Jew he can find and take every inch of land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea even if he must burn everything to the ground and lay waste to all of Israel. Actually, he claims to desire and do exactly that and has repeated that threat consistently. But the world is sure that it would be worth it for Israel to test his resolve on this as nobody other than Israelis are threatened and they believe that by sacrificing Israel the terrorism which has spread to their lands will cease because the Arab and Muslim world do not really mean it when they claim that Allah promised them they were to conquer the entire planet and rule it as the lords over all humanity and thus make Islam the only religion and political power on the Earth. What could possibly go wrong, after all Gaza was the exception and the threat does not also transfer to Judea and Samaria, let alone the entire globe.

 

The problem comes when one realizes the tactical position of superiority giving over all of Judea and Samaria gives the Palestinian Arabs as they take the high grounds and have a direct line of sight over Tel Aviv, Haifa and all of central Israel and the major structures, industry, residential areas, the sole international airport and major docks in all of Israel. There is an article which has a series of pictures taken from what would become Palestine overlooking Israel with detailed description of some of the major targets which would become vulnerable which can be read here which we recommend highly. Below we will post two of those pictures which we feel are pretty much self-descriptive though the sight has information on both and far, far more.

Israel could always make things more difficult for the Arabs by constructing a little wall about two-thousand feet in height and thick enough to withstand a few direct strikes by rocket fire or artillery and then station around five hundred or a thousand Iron Dome Batteries with hundreds and hundreds of interceptor missiles costing approximately $50,000.00 firing one at probably three-fourths of the $50.00 rockets fired over the wall and Israel could afford to do this for almost three weeks before going so far into debt that the nation would financially fail. But of course Judea and Samaria could never turn into Gaza II and Hamas would never be capable of overthrowing the Palestinian Authority a second time and the Islamic State would also have no interest in staging in Judea and Samaria against both Israel and Jordan at some point. And the world would be so appreciative of Israel taking such a risk for peace that they would have Israel’s back should everything go so terribly wrong just as they have with Gaza. Oh, wait; they have not had Israel’s back unless stabbing Israel in the back counts as having our back. Remember that the United Nations had demanded Israel cease attacking Gaza immediately after the IDF fired a single round in counterstrike for a rocket fired using back-tracing technologies which allow a strike to hit nearly exactly where a rocket originated within less than a minute and often mere seconds after the rocket was tracked by an Iron Dome or radar array. Then, when after the numbers of rockets approached almost one thousand per day and Israel sent troops into Gaza to end the barrages the United Nations, European Union, numerous governments and any number of NGOs began accusing Israel of using disproportional force because insufficient numbers of Israelis were being killed despite the overwhelming number of those killed in Gaza proved to be terrorists and others were largely human shields used by Hamas and Islamic Jihad to protect their rocket firing positions and in order to wage political war against Israel. Do not even try and tell me that this time things will be different, they will not and everybody knows they will not except this time there will be massive Israelis killed as well which at least will remove the disproportional force dialogue, but that claim will continue as the Palestinian Authority releases inflated numbers of dead and the world takes their numbers at face value while questioning any numbers released by Israel. Oh, and when the investigation by the United Nations verifies exactly what Israel reported and proved that the Palestinian Authority was making up numbers when claiming there was a massacre, say Jenin for example, the world will continue to claim there was a massacre despite all evidence to the contrary, like Jenin for example. Please spare us the inanities as the stories and empty promises will not sway the majority of Israelis, we have about had it with the double standards and the false pretenses and are fed up and not taking it any longer.

 

We do not need to explain the reasons why the Arabs have no valid claim and never used Jerusalem as a capital city for any nation and how there was never a nation called Palestine and how it simply denoted a region which has also been referred to as southern Syria but that does not make it Syria any more than it is Palestine. The treaties which make all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Israel, are reserved exclusively for the Jewish State and which cannot be used for any other purpose without the consent of Israel are well known which is why nobody had taken Israel before the International Criminal Court. The entire world of politicians and professors and experts and whoever else is knowledgeable knows, as soon as the case is heard in The Hague the game is over and it will be verified that Israel controls the lands between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, all of it, period. The sole exception is Gaza which Israel ceded to the Palestinian authority and should Israel take it back from Hamas, then there would be an argument which could be heard that it should be returned to the Palestinian Authority. That would lead to another coup as even the Arabs do not wish to live under the Palestinian Authority as their mismanagement and stealing of funds is legendary even to their own people. That would start the question of how many times would the Palestinian authority have to lose Gaza before Israel could simply keep it and allow the Arabs residing in the Gaza to have semiautonomous lives basically ruling themselves while still under the security provided by the IDF to prevent terrorism and any forced takeover by outside forces such as the Muslim Brotherhood or Islamic State or other such forces.

 

But the world will not sit still and allow Israel to live in peace because the world cannot accept that the Jews are ruling themselves. The world demands that the Jews live under the thumb of others who are their betters and know to keep an eye on the Jew and keep them from ruling the world which they would do if permitted. If one does not believe the Jews run the world then why is the entire world despite all its other problems always holding hearings and conferences to decide what to do next with the Jews and Israel? Obviously since the world concentrates so much energy and time worrying about what the Jews and Israel are up to then there must be something nefarious going on with the Jews and Israel. So much effort is put into dividing Israel into smaller and smaller chunks until it can be erased completely must have some actual reason other than people hate the Jews, they must deserve to be cheated out of the lands so foolishly granted them after World War I and the conferences which followed. Why the Jew must be made subservient just as they have been for the past two and a half thousand years as see how much trouble they have caused even when under the thumb of others, imagine the problems they have caused with their own nation. There have been an inordinate number of resolutions, hearings, conferences, approaches and what not simply to wrest all of the land of Israel from Jewish control so there must be a good reason. Hatred and anti-Semitism cannot be the explanation; it has to be the Jews who are the problem, not the rest of the world. It is entirely impossible for the entire world to be wrong and Israel to be right, isn’t it? It has to be the Jews as the world would not spend so much time, effort, treasure and all else that’s holy just to destroy little old Israel if the Jews were not the problem. This appears to have been the reasoning of the Europeans, the Americans, the United Nations, the Arab World, the Russians, Chinese, and whoever else one cares to name because otherwise everybody has been wasting so much time all about nothing other than hate. Could it all be that simple, could it all be about hatred of the Jews, a three-thousand-plus year problem that the world just cannot seem to get past?

 

That would be insane as the entire world knows that if the Jews were to be left alone and in peace in the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, that entire 26,184 sq. km., the entire 0.005% of the Earth’s surface, then left to their own devices the Jews of Israel, a whole 0.1% of the World’s population, allowed freedom to invent, research, work and live and share their discoveries and inventions with the world, these Jews who are a remnant of the world population residing on a mere scrap of lands at the east end of the Mediterranean Sea would somehow manage to ruin the lives of everyone else and own everything within a mere decade, maybe two decades? Is this the fear the world has because we often hear of this “Greater Israel” which would come about should Israel not be hampered and driven into extinction by those who have a reliable and valid fear, right? Is it really too much to ask that the world leave us alone and allow us to run our lives, study our Torah and make wondrous discoveries which we will share, invent new applications, programs, devices and miracle cures for diseases and maybe even cancer and share them and do all sorts of what might be seen as miracles and share them all and do it all and remain on our little patch of soil and nothing more. We do not wish to conquer anything and would not have agreed to every proposition made; even when the United Nations proposed on November 29, 1947, against Article 80 of the United Nation’s own Charter, to divide the remaining Mandate Lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea in half and make the Jewish half be made up of over one third Negev Desert; the Zionist Congress speaking for the future Israel and the Jewish nation agreed and the Arab League refused demanding all the land or threatening war, a threat they carried out the very morning of May 15, 1948, the morning of Israel’s founding as a new state, as over a half dozen nation’s armies with militias attacked the nascent Jewish State and somehow a miracle, Israel survived.

 

About that war where Israel survived but lost Judea and Samaria, renamed West Bank by Jordan, and lost Gaza to Egypt and still Israel celebrated as we Jews had a homeland in the vicinity of our ancient homelands. Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria illegally and even the Arab States refused to recognize their annexation, an annexation they cancelled in order to make additional Arab refugees after the Six Day War, a war Israel begged Jordan to refrain from joining but Jordan saw those pleadings as weakness and found out different. That was the Six Say War where Israel liberated Gaza as well as Judea and Samaria while also conquering all of the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights, another area given away by the French and British in order to deny it to the Israelis and give Syria the high ground overlooking the Galilee. Here is the really interesting item about the lands lost by Israel in 1948-9, the Gaza, Judea and Samaria. These are the very lands that today the world is demanding that Israel surrender to make another Arab State called Palestine. These are part of what the world claims was the ancient land of Palestine though there is no record of any nation ever in all of history called Palestine. There is a region known as Syria Palaestina under the Romans but that was a region ruled from Rome, like Prince Georges County in Maryland, ruled from Washington D.C. but never would one call it a nation. Still, for the eighteen plus years that Jordan and Egypt controlled these regions there was not a single call to form a state called Palestine. There was the formation of a terror group called the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964, a full three years before the six Day War and the liberation of Gaza, Judea and Samaria by Israel from Egyptian and Jordanian control respectively and the start of the Arab League deceit of stealing land called Palestine. The PLO did claim they were going to liberate Palestine but they were not interested in Gaza, Judea or Samaria as these lands were already in Arab hands. The Palestine they declared they would liberate was Israel, all of Israel, and that is exactly the area they desire to liberate today, all of Israel and not just Gaza, Judea and Samaria. What is so sad is that almost the entire world appears to desire to assist them in exactly that goal and assist them in their conquest of all of Israel. That is the truth and that is why there are seventy nations conspiring in Paris to imagine a new and inventive way of destroying Israel and gifting it to the Arabs who will ignore the land within a few years and move on as they never did populate the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea until the Jews returned and an economy was born. Read Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) and Herman Melville and others descriptions of these lands when they visited the Holy Lands before 1900 and get a taste for the reality and not the fiction being sold as real history by the fabricators and their revisionist history which suits their political ends over the truth. Once you know the reality, please pass it along with some advice that the Jews be permitted their little scrap of land and we will promise to repay in kindness and miracles almost beyond belief.

Trump Transition, President Obama and Israel

 

Just as President elect Donald Trump and his transition team will need to formulate a Middle East and North Africa (MENA) policy approach, intent and set goals as part and parcel of an entirely Trump’s American view of the world and Israel too need prepare to work with the President elect and on into the Trump first one hundred days teams, both also will necessitate a joint approach in preventing or having the means of mitigating any further actions which President Obama may plan or execute which would further poison the waters and lands of the MENA neighborhood. Making sure that President Obama makes the transition to the Trump Presidency as smooth and trouble-free as is humanly possible, especially when it comes to foreign policies must be an emphasis made understood by the current White House team. Such a message need be backed by the majority leaders currently in place, and any future one if there is a change in the works, visibly by letter to whatever means is required, even going to the media with a demand to be part of any Obama moves in the greater arena of world politics, particularly at the United Nations. As far as Israel is concerned, they are not out of the woods yet but they can see the break in the trees and the fields and a return from exile ahead. Still, they are in the woods and dangers are always lurking even this close to having survived. This is why Israel need setup an interface with Transition Team Trump through which they can give Trump and his MENA advisors any intelligence required to fill in the gaps which may exist. This line of communication must also advise Trump and his Transition Team of any rumored moves which President Obama appears ready to make particularly when it comes to Israel directly. Further, Israel need be informed of exactly where a Trump Presidency sees Israel and to attempt to sway their positions to a more friendly and giving future by making them aware of what Israel would prefer to see vis-à-vis Israeli freedoms to act in the coming years.

 

All of this means that the leadership of Israel absolutely must get their act together fast and iron out their intents and expectation for a Trump White House and establish solid, direct and cordial relations with fast, easy and accurate communications between Jerusalem and Washington D. C. which will make as sure as possible that Jerusalem is in the loop and understands what may be expected from them to reach any and all mutual goals. This especially refers to the first hundred days committee who need understand any necessary requirements vis-à-vis Israel particularly such that these requirements are built into the MENA policies as a whole going forward. Still, Israel need be concerned right up until President Trump officially takes control over all White House functions. Donald Trump must be made aware that it is imperative that he name his expected Ambassador to the United Nations and to Israel and have each head the transition thus being able to advise concerning the expectations for no further damage be done anywhere on the globe by team Obama in their final two months. It would also be in the future’s favor as should be envisioned by Israeli leadership to communicate with President elect Trump exactly what Israel would like to include with action on the front lines such that there is a smooth and amiable relationship in actions and hopes going forward. This is the best time for Israel to act responsibly and with targeted goals set in their sites and actually to act to accomplish their stated goals. This will require Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to understand what an opportunity Hashem has placed before him. This is a sign that our prayers, those of Jews and Zionists around the world, have been answered and relief from the recent tyrannical acts which Israel and her friends have had to endure. This begs the question as to what are the greatest desires of the Zionist camp and how can these be best provided to Team Trump and be validated by the Israeli leadership. What is potentially sad is that arranging the participation and backing of such an agenda by the Israeli leadership will probably be the most difficult part of the path. Israeli leaders need to lead this new line of actions choosing carefully how to communicate and be heard in truth by the people with whom they are tasked to deal. The Israeli liaison team need be given an Israeli wish list for the first two-hundred day plan, if for no other reason than to indicate that Israel will not likely to be found sitting idly about and not ready and willing to press the frontiers of what is possible. Such is the onus upon Israeli leadership as there is not likely to come a more opportune time for realizing the Zionist dreams as a whole and complete Israel as originally promised in the Balfour Declaration and further ratified by the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Lausanne and set in stone by the, Treaty of Sèvres (see map below). Backed by these treaties and their affects upon established International Law and further confirmed applicable by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, any Israeli team has sufficient backing to invalidate any claim for an independent Arab state further encroaching on lands promised the Zionists and set in stone by the entirety of world leadership as a whole.

This time is the time when Israel not only needs but must act, imperatively so, and for what we Zionists were promised by a world set on restoring native homelands to their rightful owners who resided and had the reigning cultures present before Grecian, Roman, Byzantine and finally Islamic Jihadist Arabs denying and enslaving native populations taking what were then simply the spoils of conquest. The Ottoman Empire, the final form of the Caliphate, was to survive a million, two million, indefinitely into the future for all time expanding to impose Islamic law and rule over all the Earth was instead humbled and conquered by the Allied powers and thus was then capable of being returned to its indigenous owners or granted freedom to rule themselves. In the areas west of the Jordan River was an expanse of lands which remained uncultivated, devoid of irrigation and fresh water so sparsely populated that travelers wrote of the empty lands where people could ride for a day and meet but a few wandering people and perhaps a flock of goats, nothing more. Jerusalem was described as a ghost town except for its population of Jews who were ambitious sort unlike the others who appeared to depend on the kindnesses of the rare travelers for their fare which their outstretched hands appeared to demand. It was this barren and rocky landscape with the south consumed by the Negev Desert that the Jewish State was to be established while east of the Jordan under the rule of the Hashemite Dynasty the Arab State of Transjordan (today simply Jordan) many times the size was designed to be built. The proper time for the Israelis to finally and permanently claim all the lands promised them is now setting up everything as a part of the first hundred days. All that is actually required from President Trump is his recognition of Israeli claims and borders and to make good immediately on his pledge to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, even to western areas of Jerusalem though placing the United States Embassy to Israel in the Old City would carry significant meaning and be a very constructive move.

 

The main onus though, is upon the leadership of Israel. The requirement is for the leadership to, imagine this, lead. We understand that this is a new experience for them but it is of vital importance that this opportunity not only be grasped but ridden hard to forge everything which the Israeli people desire and to finally assure that all of Israel be made whole and under a singular governance. Anyone reading the Mandate System and the treaties mentioned above will immediately realize is all of these treaties and agreement include within them references or direct phrases demanding that the Jewish State protect and defend the property rights of those residing in the lands, the religious rights and grant these people a form of resident legalities which was to respect all their human rights but they were not necessarily to be granted political rights, they were not granted any right to self-rule in their own state or the right to vote in Israeli elections unless granted citizenship via whatever means the Jewish State would set. That understood, Israel could mitigate their not receiving a state of their own, could still set a semiautonomous region where the existing would be permitted local rule in each district but not permitted to partake in national elections until fully vetted and having passed a course preparing them for citizenship, and then each application would need to be given an interview and then be considered whether to grant them citizen status. Such an allowance for specific self-rule would be a first such arrangement for a newly established nation and Israel will also be within their rights to deport anybody who is tied to terrorist activities and disallow their reentry ever, period and end of that story. Whatever Israel believes is in their best and final interest is exactly what must now become the government’s reason d’etre. This is the time for action and not simply dreaming as this is that moment that those dreams can be realized.

 

Transition times have proven to be Israel’s time of misfortune in the past as the Islamic forces from the numerous and varied nation all demand that Israel be impeded and prevented from reaching any final deal in which Israel is permitted to continue as a Jewish state as their designs are for Israel to be subsumed by the Arabs who surround them. These nations operate under the concept that anywhere that an Arab or Muslim had trodden is and must forever remain a holy Islamic state where Arabs rule with absolute power and all non-Muslims reside as Dhimmi until the day when they will be demanded to convert or die, and both is not ruled out. This has been the demand actually made by the Arab Palestinians which is easily verifiable, just check the maps incorporated in their geography and history books and the truth becomes plainly evident (see images below). The means by which the Arab Muslims plan on destroying Israel can be divided between two approaches, direct and indirect. The direct approach is obvious, gain as much land as possible, increase terrorism and rocket firing and should Israel respond simply claim it would all end if Israel just return some area which is claimed to have been stolen. Repeat this and take Israel apart one piece at a time. The indirect method relies on inundating Israel with five to eight million so-called refugees of Apartheid. This claim of being dispossessed by Israel is as false as can be as over 90% of the refugees have never even seen Israel except on a map and certainly have never set foot on the lands they claim. Only, from amongst all the refugee populations of the world, is the status of refugee handed down generation to generation. Only the Arab refugees under UNRWA forbidden from taking on any other citizenship as they are to be denied peoplehood only if used to destroy Israeli democracy by inundating the tiny nation with sufficient refugees who will demand to vote Israel into an Arab state after which the Jews will need flee or be wiped from the face of the earth. That is the plan in a nutshell. What makes all of this so absurd is that the gest as well as the vast majority of these “Palestinian refugee camps” are located within areas under Hamas (Gaza City and other camps) rule or Palestinian Authority (PA) rule and many have relatives who reside within the towns in which the camp resides and the two sides of the family are kept separated just to destroy Israel. For this reason as their numbers grew from approximately six-hundred-fifty-thousand to seven-hundred-thousand refugees to today over five millions, a seven fold increase, these Arabs have been kept in camps which are actually apartment buildings very similar to those outside the camp with the main difference being the side of the barbed wire fencing they were built and the lack of opportunity for those within the barbed wire held there by Arab guards imprisoned by their fellow Arabs.

Meanwhile, the nearly eight-hundred-thousand Jews expelled from Arab lands and almost all came to Israel make up half the population and have played an intricate part in Making Israel all she is today. There is also an Arab population in Israel comprising approximately twenty percent who trace their parentage back to those Arabs who remained and chose to become Israelis rather than run and join the Mufti’s ill-fated army. These Arabs are full citizens, vote, worship, work, drive, play and live as they please. There are Israeli Arabs in the government both elected to the Knesset (Parliament) as well as working in the government offices. They are judges, physicians, lawyers, businesspeople, sheepherders, truck drivers, entrepreneurs, mayors, police, firefighters and serve in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) if they choose to enlist and are enlisted and officers alike. Some Arabs work for Jews and some employ Jews or are placed in management above Jew and Arab alike. To state it as plain as possible, the Arab citizens in Israel are every bit a part and accepted members of Israeli society and can be as much a member as they choose. When claims are made that the Palestinians have not voted in Israeli elections, there is a good reason, they are not Israelis and many could have chosen such but were instead caught and imprisoned by their Arab brothers under the orders of the Mufti of Jerusalem back in 1949. This was to be their punishment and new utilization in the destruction of the Jewish State. That is the final item which need be communicated to the Trump advisors and others, that the Arab-Israeli conflict is not about land, it is about whether Jews are to be permitted to rule themselves or even to live at all on this planet. The original PLO charter and the Hamas charter both called for the eradication of the Jews, not the Israeli Jews but the Jews just as Hitler had desired. Hitler very likely was given the “Final Solution” as the manner of dealing with the Jews by the Mufti of Jerusalem who resided in Berlin during World War II and was an invitee, at his own insistence, to the Wannsee Conference where the Final Solution was drawn up and approved. The Mufti is rumored to have demanded the Nazis assist with the extermination of the Jews in the Middle East so he could rule an area free of the Jew. The Mufti probably initiated the Jews being made to wear the yellow star which had been the practice of an early sultan during the first Caliphate. The idea that the Arabs learned their anti-Semitism from the Nazis and the Europeans themselves is ridiculous as the Arab hatred of the Jews started in Arabia and was best exemplified in the Battle of Khyber where an entire town was murdered with the only exceptions being birthing age women and the trainable aged youth and it was this battle which set anti-Semitism, the unnatural hatred of the Jews, as one of the added pillars of Islam which has lasted to the modern times. This is why the pro-Palestinian often chant, “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sayud.” The threat of Khaybar is the threat of extermination, harkening back to Muhammad’s annihilation of an entire tribe of Jews, the Qurayzah.

 

 

 

And here from Hezballah who are a terror group operating out of Lebanon claiming that Israel is occupying part of Lebanon which they claim that the Galilee belongs to them, these are all lands south of the Armistice Line between Israel and Lebanon and the internationally recognized border between the two nations. Israel removed every last person from Lebanon over a decade past.
