Palestinian Authority, UNESCO and the Group of 77

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:03 AM

 

To explain what is occurring, we will have to reverse the title as we go through the various machinations. The Group of 77 (G-77) is a vital link to understanding much of what happens in the world, specifically when it comes to denouncing specific nations and working through the United Nations and its various agencies, especially UNESCO. G-77 is made up of one-hundred-thirty-four nations which are all in the United Nations. The United Nations has one-hundred-ninety-three voting member states which gives G-77 a comfortable majority enabling them to pass anything they desire through the General Assembly. The G-77 also controls a number of regions which include Africa, Asia, Middle East and South America (see map below). Because of their controlling of these continents, they hold a majority of the seats on virtually every United Nations various agencies which currently includes UNESCO. To give one a flavor for the proclivities of the G-77, they just elected Palestinian Authority President, Chairman of Fatah Party, Leader of the PLO and financier of the Munich Olympics Murders of the Israeli Olympic Team Mahmoud Abbas to head their block of nations. We can pretty much promise that one of their objectives will be to have Palestine recognized as a real nation state and propose for it to be granted United Nations member nation status. They may even have a sufficient number of their members taking their turn on the United Nations Security Council to force one of the permanent five nations (Russia, China, United Kingdom, France and the United States) to use their veto or such will most definitely pass. We can state clearly that we fear that should the Democrat Party win the White House, such a motion would more than likely be permitted to pass the Security Council with the United States abstaining from the vote exactly as was the case towards the end of the terms of President Obama when United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 (fortunately chapter 6) to pass with the United States abstaining. There were a number of people who claimed that President Obama had a strong input as to how the resolution was phrased.

The G-77 have become a world level dictatorial group who are heavily swayed by the Arab League (see map below), which includes twenty-two of the members, and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) (see map below), which includes the Arab League members as an integral part of its fifty-seven member states. These two organizations are more of a set and subset of each other along with other interlinking organizations (see Venn diagram below) which, even when disagreements arise, they tend to maintain sufficient cohesion to control much of the United Nations and related agencies and organizations. This is a vital part of what is coming up in the near future starting in the G-77.

The latest brilliant idea coming from the Palestinian Authority and to be brought first before the G-77 to assure full cooperation and backing, then to UNESCO and potentially the General Assembly in the form of denouncing Israeli lies and false claims, will be insisting that Israel is again stealing Palestinian history and destroying their heritage. Of course, it helps that Mahmoud Abbas is the President of the Palestinian Authority and of the G-77 such that he will present this to them all but guaranteeing their acceptance. This will become the normative path for all Palestinian Authority claims against Israel and anybody else using the position of Mahmoud Abbas for maximum influence and muscle at the United Nations. The initial claim is going to be that Israel is stealing archaeological items from “occupied Palestinian lands” and using them to falsify history. They wish to threaten archaeologists that they will be charged with a crime if they partake, recognize or take any other disturbing act by UNESCO once they get their claim validated by that organization. The first thing to remember is that legally there is no such thing as Palestinian occupied lands. Under international law which uses treaties and international conventions as well as the Mandate System set up by the League of Nations and still enforceable under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, all lands west of the Jordan River are legally part of Israel. The occupation under international law is the Arab presence on lands legally belonging to Israel and they will continue to legally be Israel unless and until Israel signs a treaty forgiving her rightful claim. This statement of fact is very often met with wild gyrations, much clamoring, demands and insistences that such is wildly inaccurate and numerous other accompanying actions up to and including threats but in the end, the World Courts would award all the land to Israel. This is why the world presses so hard to have Israel sign a treaty defining parts of her lands to be surrendered to the Arabs for yet another state cut out of the Mandate lands making there be two Arab nations and one Jewish, until they chop it down to the size of Tel Aviv.

 

These claims that these excavations are of Palestinian archaeological sites is of great interest as most of the sites are anywhere from 1500 to 3500 years in age. But we need to remember that according to Palestinian historians and their numerous backers that the Arabs who left the Arabian Peninsula around the year 635AD arrived in the lands west of the Jordan river four thousand years ago in the year 2000 BCE. Basically, their claim is they surged out of the Arabian Peninsula at the start of the Islamic conquest of the MENA lands and beyond and time-traveled back 2600 years plus to arrive where Israel is today. Were there Arabs in Israel before 600 AD? Yes, mostly caravan traders who would come to sell their wares and buy items to sell when they returned home. Were there Jews in the Arabian Peninsula before 600 AD? Yes, as proven by the Quran as it names tribes of Jews which Muhammad decimated or exiled from the Peninsula. The initial conquest of the Levant (Israel and Lebanon) by Islamic forces occurred in the year 634 (see map below). The final conquest of the region by Islamic forces was in 1187 with the siege of Jerusalem by Salah ad-Din or Saladin, an Islamic Kurd. Even after Saladin solidified Islamic rule over the region of Israel, Jews remained residing in the region largely in Jerusalem despite hardships and persecution.

The actual archaeological records of the region have verified the conquests and empire built by Kings David and Solomon who established what has been referred to as Greater Israel. Their lands reached from the Euphrates River to the Wadi of Egypt. There are those who claim the Zionists want to conquer a region they call Greater Israel reaching from the Euphrates River to the River Nile. The reference to Greater Israel is a historic reference to the Israelite (Jewish) Empire under Kings David and Solomon (see map below). This is the empire they never taught in your school simply because the education was likely Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Shinto, Native American or anything but Jewish. Some of the aforementioned refused to recognize that the Jews ever established any greater lands or empire as that would have weakened their claims to have subjugated the Jews and the rest were teaching Asian or other histories which did not cover the Middle East, specifically the area including Israel. The Israelite Empire existed from 1050 BCE through 930 BCE before disputes over who was the legitimate heir to the throne of King Solomon broke the lands into two nations, Israel (the ten northern tribes which became the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel) and Judea (who were called Judeans which the Romans decided was too long and shortened it to Ju – pronounced Jew).

Israeli history and the Jewish history has already been declared irrelevant by UNESCO as they decided, when approached by the Arab nations in the name of the Palestinians, that the Jews have no historic ties or links to Jerusalem and in another UNESCO decision they declared in agreement with the Islamic world that the Jews have no link to the Temple Mount. Now the Arabs in the name of Palestine are going to present UNESCO with another resolution declaring all the archaeological finds on what is declared occupied Palestine are not Jewish but are Palestinian sites which the Jews are attempting to pass off as theirs. This has far greater implications than many realize as they believe that declared occupied Palestine in the Shomron region of Judea and Samaria and Gaza. The Arabs and Palestinian Authority as well as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and most of the Arab and Islamic worlds believe that all of Israel is occupied Palestine and the Jews never lived in the region. It is their claim that the Jews are not even a historic people and the modern Jews have no ties to the Israelites or any of the tribes. They believe every libel claiming that the Jews are some European tribe called the Khazars. This has been refuted but is still spread as fact and a means of uprooting the Jews from Israel. What, even if this were true, does this have to do with the other half of the Jews in Israel who came to Israel after the Arabs dispossessed them of all wealth and properties and exiled them into an uncaring world where only Israel accepted the vast majority of close to a million Jews without a country, around eight-hundred-fifty-thousand were absorbed by Israel. The Arab League, IOC and Palestinian Authority are going to utilize the many varied agencies and the General Assembly to disposes and disprove the Jewish claims to Israel by simply erasing the Jews and in their place claiming that everything is Palestinian and thereby proof that they were the people residing in the region as far back as four thousand years and perhaps further. This replacement of the Jews by the Arabs being completely false is irrelevant as the world will vote and let’s face it, the Jews are hardly going to win popularity contests.

 

Within most of our lifetimes, the United States will distance itself from Israel. The writing is on the wall and has been present there for years. It is simply that the speed with which the world has been willing to adopt the Palestinian claims that they were the ancient inhabitants of the land of Israel, despite any and all evidence to the contrary, has only increased with alarming regularity. Nations which Israel has assisted when they were in dire need after natural disasters vote against Israel. Such thanks has not prevented Israel from assisting some of these nations again when another disaster has struck. Places where Israel has introduced water purifications, medical assistance and all forms of aid and technology will still denounce Israel at every turn. It is a good thing for the world that Israel does not bother to keep a scorecard and use such to decide where to share her resources, special aid and other forms of support for other nations in need. Israel is determined to be a “Light unto the Nations,” no matter what she need overlook as Israel realizes that there are people in need and there are the governments over these people and the two are only loosely related. Israel has done all she is able to ignore the hatred spewed in her direction. Israel has arranged to perform needful heart surgery on infants from every corner of the globe and even found means for transporting those from Arab nations through a neutral third country to protect their identities all as part of their Save a Child’s Heart programs. This program has also trained doctors worldwide and set up entire departments with equipment and all the necessary training of nurses and staff at hospitals around the third world. Here is an article listing the top twenty-two ways Israel aided Africa in last three years. Keep in mind that all of Africa are members in the G-77. Israel is a world leader in providing disaster relief. Below is a map which we apologize is a few years old which displays Israeli disaster relief efforts more of which is at the last link. Then there is MASHAV which is the Israeli Agency for International Development Cooperation.

We could continue with effort after effort Israel makes and for which mostly the governments may issue a statement immediately after Israel has aided their people in need but the love is definitely unrequited when the time comes to vote in the halls of the United Nations. Fortunately for most of the world, Israel, unlike the United States currently, does not take down names nor remember the slights paid her by most of the world and thinks only about the people in need and how to relieve their distress. But the world turns and over time it will become necessary for Israel to disassociate from the United Nations. If Israel refuses to do so, the end result will be the United Nations separating itself from Israel when they demand that Israel relinquish her membership as that institution has decided that Israel is not actually a real nation. This may prove to be a freeing event as once Israel has been disassociated from the United Nations, what sway do they actually think they will retain. Such a disassociation could prove to be the best thing which could ever happen to Israel. For those who do not believe such could ever happen claiming that the United States will always and always has supported Israel, you need to read this. On that recommendation we will call it a day, thank you.

Iranian Threats Must be Taken Deadly Seriously

 

Many in the Western World will claim that we should take threats made by Iran with a large measure of salt. Their reasoning is that no sane leader would risk such destruction upon their nation, its infrastructure and especially its people. We could not argue with this reasoning as no sane leader would risk such destruction. There are two slight problems with this reasoning as it has been applied to Iran. First is that the Ayatollahs, especially the most important Ayatollah, the Supreme Leader, do not believe that the United States would risk war with Iran because they believe they hold the same belief that President Trump is bluffing and would not risk the destruction Iran believes they could inflict upon the United States. This brings us to something which is necessary for going any further in this standoff review.

 

First, we will look at the United States and what they might be capable of inflicting upon Iran. The United States has replaced the aircraft carrier group in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean, as the former group had been rotated to their home port, plus another carrier group in the eastern Mediterranean in addition to the fleet normally in the Mediterranean. Further, the United States has repositioned an entire B-52 Wing stationed in the region in the American base in Qatar. The aircraft carrier group was already scheduled for positioning and is not an additional deployment and as thus is merely part of the rotation of naval forces. The main additional threat is the B-52 Wing which provides some heavy bombers which are nuclear capable and can also carry the MOAB (Massive Ordinance Air Blast) nicknamed the Mother of all Bombs due to its size. This ordinance is a supersized Daisey Cutter and has an equivalence of eleven tons TNT forming a blast radius of one mile in every direction from the detonation point. Even using normative bombs, the B-52 specialty is performing what is called carpet bombing destroying large swaths of a region the plane overflies. The additional item is the B-52’s fly in formations in which one of the aircraft is what is called an electronics plane which specializes in jamming radars, giving false radar returns of additional B-52 Wings miles away from the actual group, diverting anti-aircraft missiles of numerous varieties and other electronic means for defending the wing. The naval forces America has within range of Iran includes a number of missile cruisers and frigates which have numerous varieties of missiles and warheads including nuclear warheads. But all of these are items the Iranians are fully aware but one has to wonder what the United States has in the region which Iran does not have when forming their equation. With any naval fleet there are some selection of submarines stationed within range of the fleet and even within the fleet to augment their abilities. There could be attack submarines which could assist with intercepting ships, including fast ships, and also could pass discreetly into the Persian Gulf. Then there is a possibility of submarines carrying missiles including what are called Boomers which carry nuclear missiles. Between the numerous assets the United States has advertised they have placed in the regions around Iran are sufficient to eradicate targets throughout Iran from specific targets to entire metropolitan regions and do so with conventional weapons. We are taking it on faith that the United States would not resort to the use of nuclear weapons except under the most serious of provocations.

 

Now, for the Iranian side of the equation which is less well defined. There is one wild card in the Iranian equation which is totally dependent upon the current location of the fleet they claimed to have deployed for stationing in the western region of the North Atlantic Ocean specifically to situate itself along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Of course, Iran has not stated that they intend to attack the United States mainland but has threatened the American naval assets in their region. The main threat coming from the Iranians is that should they come under attack, any attack by any country, they will completely destroy Israel immediately thereafter. Their threats have included the intent to use nuclear weapons or other weapons of mass destruction such as biological or chemical weapons. Iran would not need to launch a single missile, launch aircraft to bomb Israel, they simply can send the order to their terror forces in the region to launch all-out attacks on Israel and sit back and watch. So, what are the forces and what are their weapons they might use. The one many people are already familiar with are Islamic Jihad, a direct arm of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps), as well as Hamas to attack Israel with various rockets which are capable of striking near Jerusalem and the entirety of the Tel Aviv metropolitan region all the way to Haifa in the north and possibly bring down some of the skyscrapers in the center of Tel Aviv all from Gaza. That would likely be the Iranian opening strike in order to entangle Israel and the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) in Gaza in the south. Then, after two or three days waiting for the IDF to be forced to become fully involved with the Iranian terror extension in Gaza. Then Iran would unleash their main force in the region out of Syria and Lebanon backed by whatever IRGC forces they might have stationed in Syria, that being Hezballah. Hezballah has approximately one-hundred-fifty-thousand rockets and missiles of varying sizes and ranges. Their largest can strike all of Israel and beyond with very large warheads including biological and chemical warheads and, if they have them, nuclear warheads (see map below).

 

Hezballah Rocket & Missile Threat

Hezballah Rocket & Missile Threat

 

Hezballah also has access to the entirety of the Lebanese military weapons. These weapons include numerous Russian tanks, armored vehicles and anti-tank missiles as well as American Abrams Main Battle Tanks, armored vehicles and helicopters as well as whatever Iran has been capable of smuggling to the Hezballah terrorist army, and it is an army, make no mistake about that. Additionally, Hezballah has dug an unknown number of tunnels under the Israeli border to use as an intricate part of their invasion plans in addition to the tunnels and bunkers they have spread over southern Lebanon across the entirety of Lebanon below the Litany River. Any assault by Hezballah would initially be a massive firing of rockets with the hope that when Israeli Air Force arrives to end the barrage that they will be able to use the anti-aircraft missiles they probably possess. There have been rumors that Hezballah has been equipped with the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft systems as well as shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles such as MANPADS and Stinger Missiles. At some point the Hezballah Army and the IDF would engage. The plan from Iran is that after forcing the IDF to engage with Islamic Jihad and Hamas and other terrorist groups operating in Gaza, then Israel would not have top-line elite forces left to engage their main force from in Lebanon supported out of Syria. Their thinking may or may not be valid. That may be mistaken as Israel could alter their normal division of forces and use weapons which Israel has normally deployed. Then again, Israel has not been required to engage with Gaza and Hezballah at the same time. There is one means to which Israel could resort which she normally does not use. No, we are not talking about nuclear weapons or any other weapons of mass destruction. Israel also has missiles, very accurate missiles with various warheads. What kinds of warheads? The normal answer to this question is, if we told you we would have to kill you, but that is too trite. Israel has the normal range of warheads of any first-world nations which include EMP (both nuclear and conventional), high explosive, incendiary, fuel-air (thermobaric) and various others including nuclear should such an exchange become necessary.

 

But what else would such an attack cause? Israel has stated that should Hezballah attack that Iran would not be spared. Iran definitely has S-300 and potentially has S-400 Russian anti-aircraft and missile systems. How sophisticated are the Israeli missiles? We know they are accurate and that they include advanced cruise missiles but the cruise missiles would require being launched from aircraft or naval vessels closer to Iran to be within their range. Israeli aircraft are almost exclusively fighter jets whose range would not permit any extended time over targets in order to reach Iran unless they were granted landing rights from a nation between Israel and Iran. Releasing the name of any Arab or Islamic nation which might have agreed to give Israeli fighters landing rights if necessary was the method by which President Obama kept Israel from inhibiting the Iranian production of nuclear weapons. Things have changed, or so we are led to believe. That will remain to be seen as time reveals what will become history.

 

What is frightening for Israelis, Iranians and potentially far beyond even to the United States is what follows a war between the United States and Iran in the Middle East. Such a war would immediately escalate to include Israel almost immediately. The entirety of the Israeli anti-missile systems would be tested to or beyond its ability, we can merely pray that it is up to the task as Iran has intimated that she would launch as many nuclear tipped missiles as it would take to get at least two of them through the Israeli defenses as they believe that would be sufficient to completely wipe Israel from the map. This begs the question as to exactly what it would take to prove that Iran had launched a nuclear tipped missile at Israel simply from the remains of the successful interception of such a missile. Would sufficient crucial pieces remain which could be used to prove such a case? Would anybody actually believe any proof Israel provided? What would result from such an exchange?

 

Well, the answer is that nothing would change and Iran would not be decimated while Israel might remain. So, for argument’s sake we will assume Israel also survives any such conflict. The very first thing would be the condemnation of the United Nations General Assembly of Israel demanding that Israel cease their hostile and unprovoked attacks. Then would come the various agencies of the United Nations followed by a litany of nations largely from the Group of 77, the coalition of one-hundred-thirty-four developing nations which have mostly followed the Arab and Muslim worlds blindly and thus will gleefully condemn Israel and exonerate Iran and turn on the United States if given any chance to do so. The chance that such a conflict would widen into a greater conflagration is actually small. There exists a possible path should Russia get involved and side with Iran. First thing is that Russia and Iran (Persia) have a long and violent history of ill wills. Russia is favorable to Israel as first, there are a large number of Russians in Israel, second, they admire what Israel has accomplished and third, Russia wants no part of a conflict with any nuclear capable nation with advanced missiles and pinpoint guidance systems. Fortunately, the majority of the Arab world being Sunni Muslims and untrusting of Persian, especially when they are Shiite, will simply wait any war involving Iran out unless attacked by Iran. We can assume that any nation which may end up fighting Iran will not be concerned with engaging the Arabs world as well. So, as long as Russia stands aside there will be little chance of this war widening beyond Iran, the United States and Israel. Nobody else wishes to have a dog in this fight and to be honest, Israel would love nothing more than to sit any and all future wars out.

 

 

The best solution to this would be the United States and Iran talking and making a new deal, but there has been some bad blood from the United States withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) and demanding a renegotiation in which the terms would be far less advantageous for Iran. The Ayatollahs, specifically Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei who is the one who believes he got sand kicked into his face by President Donald Trump. This is something that Supreme Leaders, Kings, Emperors and other dictators take very badly and tend to react violently. We may find the answer as to whether the Supreme Leader Khamenei was serious about sacrificing the people and nation of Iran in order to destroy Israel and the United States or was he blowing smoke to try and appear more powerful. Iran is rated as the fourteenth most powerful military with Israel two spaces behind at sixteenth. Of course, Russia is rates second, China third and the United States was first, of course. The pivotal individual in this entire imbroglio is the Iranian Supreme Leader and those with influence in his decision-making processes. This includes the Council of Experts, a group of senior Imams, Ayatollahs, who are responsible for appointing Supreme Leaders and advising them, the Iranian President and their Parliament, though the elected individuals have far less input than the Ayatollahs as they are merely elected by the people, even though the Assembly of Experts also decide who is permitted to run for office. In the end, it will be the top Ayatollahs who will be more likely to simply agree with whatever the Supreme Leader decides. The problem is he is the one who likely feels he has been insulted directly by President Trump. There may be an attack upon the United States naval forces which will lead to a serious conflagration which we can only hope never does include nuclear weapons, no matter whose weapons they may be. In the end, it will be what Iran desires, peace or war.

If Only We Would All Work Against Hate

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:58 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

Hate, generally, is not a normal state of mind for a person. In order to reach the stage where one hates, a great deal of energy needs to be extended over time to reach such a hostile state. We are talking the kind of hate that has driven some of the worst mass killing sprees of history. We are talking about the hatreds which had no rational beyond they are different and by their existence the world has a conscience and thus cannot partake of all pleasures without concerns and limitations. Oddly enough, it was Adolph Hitler who defined why this hatred began and where it would lead by defining the basic affect the existence of any Jew meant for the rest of the world, the existence of a single Jew meant the world had a conscience and knew there was a difference between goodness and evil. This is why the Jews have been treated so differently than any other race, religion, people or group. The Jews meant that mankind was not free to pillage, rape and bash their way through life. Of course, Hitler had little if any use for conscience and was going to eradicate the world’s conscience, the Jews. That was why six-million innocent Jews and another approximately six-million of the wretched, the broken, the insane, the Gypsies (Roma), Polish, Russian and all others defined as inferior were eradicated. Hitler was going to purify the human race. This begs the question; how many will remain once you are finished? Where do you stop? Martin Niemöller, a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany framed the situation well when he stated, “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” That is the problem, eventually such a cleansing starts to run out of victims and by that point it is far too late.

 

Conscience is a Jewish invention

 

Well, the world is racing into that cauldron of hate which starts with anti-Semitism, the one hate which it appears everyone can rally to with willing acceptance that this is a holy cleansing. The Christians only need reach back a few hundred years to when they believed that they had replaced the Jews before Hashem. The Jews had gone astray and were no longer righteous, actually they were anti-righteousness and so unholy that they had to be kept apart. They could be permitted to perform those professions which were forbidden or below their Christian betters. Now it is Islam who believe that they are the final words from Hashem except he is now Allah and he appears to have ordered the Muslims to cleanse the world of all unbelievers beginning with the Jews and then the idolaters followed by the Christians and finally any Muslims who are not enthusiastic enough in their devotion to Allah and Muhammad. Their Quran and Imams demand that they Muslims are destined to purify the world removing all those who are not meeting the Quranic standards as interpreted by the many disparate Imams who often do not agree on exactly what meets the Quranic standards. They all agree that anyone who is not a Muslim is defined as an unacceptable being who is imperfect and can only become perfect through conversion to Islam. The Jews are familiar with this position as it was the position of the Church and later most of the Protestant founders also insisted that the Jews were unacceptable and required conversion or death. With time and maturity, the Christians mostly began to accept the Jews. According to surveys, the majority of Americans have positive feelings for the Jews and for Israel. With the massive influx of ‘refugees’ from MENA (Middle East and North Africa) nations, this has begun to alter the perception of some native Europeans concerning Israel and lagging behind is coming the adversity towards Jews in general.

 

The Christians had what is referred to as a Reformation where the Churches became more open and no longer held to the belief that they had to save the Jews from their Judaism and instead they were to become accepting. This was also supposed to cover the numerous other beliefs which were similar to Christianity but were sufficiently separate that they initially suffered scorn, derision and even persecution. Some of these groups extend to the Mormons, Mennonites, Quakers and other offshoots and denominations. The problem became people leaving the faith and becoming the latest religion the developed world had invented for their new future, Secular Humanism. Secular Humanism either rejects the existence of a Supreme Being or accepts such an entity but does not have any faith in organized religion, mind you the Secular Humanist belief system does have certain precepts which one must accept. One is that people can fashion a society which will be good without the need for anything which is recognized as a religion. They are unaware, largely, that they have defined a religion complete with rules and a belief system. G.K. Chesterton commented on such stating, “When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.” We do not believe that this applies to everyone, but it is likely more truth than many would wish to believe. The proof is the numbers of Secular Humanists who will admit they agree to numerous, what to Jews are, Blood Libels. The numbers of those who follow Islam who agree with the Blood Libels is a far greater percentage when they are sampled. This is particularly true amongst these immigrants even to include those in the United States. In all honesty, two such were elected to the United States Congress, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. These two have taken to a tag team of attacking Jews and Israel.

 

The latest came from Rashida Tlaib was an interview with Seth Meyers where she again claimed unapologetically her false antisemitic version of history and falsely claimed that the Palestinian Arabs welcomed Jews to the Middle East when Palestinian leader Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini was actually an ally of Adolph Hitler, and coordinated attacks that killed thousands of Jews many of whom were recent Holocaust survivors (video is below with her controversial statements). Her concept of history left out a few little events where her relatives, assuming they were living where she claims, may have joined in or at least watched the riotous actions of Arabs in Hevron and Jerusalem where the Arabs attacked the Jews in 1920, 1929, plus other history from this period and from 1936 through 1939, which peaked in the first and last years. These were riots often encouraged by the British who were working against the Jews establishing their state. The British worked with Arabs to move numerous Arabs into the region while refusing to permit Jews to enter the Holy Lands. This left the European Jews with no place to escape the coming elimination of European Jews by the Nazis. This was the welcome arranged for the Jews and once Israel finally was opened to Jews and the nation of Israel declared, six Arab armies and numerous other Arab units and forces with some commanded by British military veterans (and some claim also active duty British officers) mostly in Jordan and some Nazis which have not been verified though it was a logical effort for them to assist as the Mufti of Jerusalem worked with the Nazis organizing Islamic brigades in the Balkans and worked to organize Arabs to fight against the British in the MENA regions. This was the welcome which was launched on May 15, 1948 with the rising of the sun. The armies involved with the invasion of the nascent Israel were Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. What she was forgetting also was that the Mufti of Jerusalem advised the Arabs to leave their homes and move to safety behind the Arab forces. He promised that after a few days when the Jews were all taken care of by the soon to be victorious armies, then they would share in the bounty of what had been the Jewish possessions. When the Arabs lost the war to exterminate the Jews, mistakenly called the Israeli War of Independence, the Arab nations forced these Arabs, who had fled obeying the Mufti, into camps where they have lived ever since as have their children and their children etc. This is the refugee problem which causes the world such consternation as they believe the Jews forced these people into camps. There are no Arab refugee camps in regions under Israeli civil control. What is amazing is there exist refugee camps within the Palestinian Authority ruled region and in Gaza ruled by Hamas. So Palestinian ruled lands have Palestinian refugees who they incarcerate in camps because they were refugees under Jordan and Egypt, thus they must remain refugees until the world forces them on Israel. That is the reality of how these refugees lost their homes and lands. Meanwhile, here is Rashida Tlaib and her slanted view of history.

 

 

Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a trio of freshman Congress-persons, have all but taken center stage for the Democrat Party. What has made this trio even more frightening has been the range and amount of support in defending them from any and all criticism. Leading the charge to rally forces around the mad trio has been Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and other Democrats rallying at this latest outburst of the undefendable. Wait, we may have jumped the gun calling her comments anti-Semitic or controversial as there is another view one can take. What she stated was basically true, many Palestinian Arabs lost their homes. Where she goes off the reservation is blaming this on the Holocaust Jews being given Israel as a consolation prize after the horrors of World War II. The problem is two-fold. First is that the concepts and treaties plus conferences for establishing the Jewish State took place after World War I initiated by the San Remo Conference and on from there establishing the Mandate System. Further, Ms. Tlaib blames the wrong people for the Arabs who lost their homes and farms as those were the Arabs who obeyed the Mufti of Jerusalem and then were incarcerated by their own people in Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world. There were a few Arab villages where the people were removed from their lands and sent behind the Arab lines, but these were the villages which permitted Arab forces to shelter and attack the Israelis from behind and with other ambushes. The Arabs who remained in their homes and were either neutral by not engaging in hostilities or fought alongside the Jews all today have Israeli citizenship and full rights just the same as every Israeli, Jewish, Christian, Muslim or any other religion.

 

There is one item which is becoming ever more interesting. That are the comments originating from Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez which will provide copious amounts to use as grist for the mill that is editorials and other commentaries including ours. Many of those who support Israel or are against hatreds such as anti-Semitism or support the Democrats but believe these three are harming the party all call for them to be far more calm and speak out less. We wish them to speak their minds and to repeat their messages loud and proud spreading their hatred of the Jews and/or Israel as far and wide as they are able. I want everybody to hear what they say and allow for their comments to force the world to have discussions and converse about this spiteful hate from Islam against Israel and the Jews. These anti-Semitic declarations and falsified history should be spread along with other people setting the records straight with a reality check. The only way to fight such lies are to place them out in the light of truth allowing for all to discover who are the haters and who are civil. Separating our world into those who hold Israel and/or the Jews with contempt, spite, hatred, malice, detestation, loathing, abhorrence or other excessively critical and negative assessments will allow us to define those who hold hatred which taints them and stands as a threat to all we hold precious in an open and civil society. These are people which will need our understanding and gentle nudging towards learning to accept others and shedding their hatreds. That is the service these individuals and the others who feel the same towards groups of those different from them provide by openly stating their hatred plainly and without reservations. We, as a civilized people, need to find out who those are who require being educated and taught acceptance over hatred and love over fear. Then there is the final item, the final challenge, will be to bring about a change in Islam which will allow for them to return to the Meccan Quran over the Medina Quran rather than using their rule of Abrogation which makes the Medina Quranic verses overruling those more peaceful verses from the Meccan Quranic verses. This would require changes in Islam which would refute their history up to the present reversing their decision that the violence written in the Medina Quran overrule the coexistence taught by the Meccan Quran. The Meccan Quranic verses were the first ones written after the revelations to Muhammad in the cave outside Mecca with the Medina written later at quite a distance from the cave and were instead inspired through Muhammad’s change in lifestyle and his stature and followings grew dramatically providing Muhammad with a large force with which he began caravan raiding. From this Muhammad also firmed his control over the region around Medina and then conquered Mecca and soon was unifying the entire Arabian Peninsula. His following rulers then broke out of the Arabian Peninsula and spread across MENA conquering Persia, the Holy Lands, Egypt and beyond to Spain and Morocco. Then they reached the decision that any lands which came under the control of Islam must never be permitted to revert to any other rule. This is at the center of the conflict with Israel as it goes directly against that rule. Changing Islam from the religion which is destined to rule the world and be the sole religion permitted with all other congregants who are not Islamic being put to the sword, being killed. Either this changes or the world either succumbs or completely defeats Islam forcing a change or facing being completely annihilated. These are our choices and the louder these anti-Israel and anti-Semites continue to speak, the more our societies will realize that there is a problem. Recognizing that there is a problem is the first step in finding a solution to said problem. We have yet to take the first step in solving these hatreds and currently we have most of one political party is defending these people and excusing their hates claiming that it is the problem of the rest of the people having unfounded fears of Islam. They even came up with a name for these people who have problems with the Islamic faith, Islamophobia. That technically would mean fear of Islam, but despite potentially being a possible person to accuse of suffering from Islamophobia, but I assure you that I am not in fear of Islam. I have concerns over Islam but also hold hope that they may soon realize that the world will not permit them to destroy their societies as they have developed over time. The Secular Humanists will definitely insist on retaining what they believe is their inherent right to retain their freedom of thought. Islam insists that the individual have no freedom under Islam and must surrender their entirety to Allah and do the best they are able to imitate the founder, Muhammad, and they demand they support Jihad. These are the beliefs which will eventually run the risk of causing conflict between Islam and the rest of the world. The question is how long before the world realizes the problem and addresses the problem once and for all.
