The existence of anti-Semitism across Europe, Canada, the United States and the rest of the developed world, particularly on college campuses, is growing and will soon be beyond control and spread throughout society. The first waves will soon break out as today’s college students being steeped in anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic programs and virtual pogroms graduate and bring their toxic views into the political world and then the workplace and society as a whole. These indoctrinations are presented as presumed pro-Palestinian protests such as Israel Apartheid Week, mock checkpoints, demonstrations blocking campus access portraying the Israeli security barrier as the modern version of the Berlin Wall or the Warsaw Ghetto Walls as well as faux eviction notices placed on Jewish and pro-Israel students’ dorm rooms claiming their rooms are to be demolished as protest of terror home demolitions and simple, straight out physical intimidation of Jewish and pro-Israel students. For further observations and documentations one can start with these two articles; Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain and Hotbeds of Anti-Semitism in British Academia or use the results from a simple search engine results for anti-Semitism on college campus we performed as a free service to make life easier.

 

This article is not out to bang the drum which already has been accomplished to the point that a complete percussion section has been added to the anti-Semitism orchestrated noises around the world just covering college campuses and in some cases it spreading to public high schools. This is following a normal progression for many politicized items as has been tracked with other subjects such as global climate change, equal opportunity, affirmative actions, LGBTQ rights and other highly charged political subjects from our modern societies. We will be taking a different tact driving to perceive what is probably the one major change which if taken would help rid the entire developed world from this pernicious evil. We will leave the proof to the links above and what will probably be more than sufficient numbers of articles which are sure to continue to surface. That could change and do so with a rapidity that would astonish the world and could be right around the corner if only some specific events and particular actions taken by some crucially critical people would materialize, but such things are unfortunately not looking ready to occur. So, let’s dive in and see what needs to be shaking.

 

Anti-Israel Protests

Anti-Israel Protests

 

One of the first items which everybody a week ago thought was fair accompli and about to happen as soon as all the arrangements were done and ground was broken was the repeated statement once more by a candidate for President of the United States that the American Embassy in Israel would be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Candidate Donald Trump promised, and we quote, “We will move the American Embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem,” speaking to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in March. Further he stated this important add-on stating, “The Palestinians must come to the table knowing that the bond between the United States and Israel is absolutely, totally unbreakable.” Well, here we are in week one and already the moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem has gone from we will to a process where ramifications and complications must be weighed and a cost/benefit analysis performed and all the other irrelevant items being spit out all in an effort to say we are going to do the same old same old. We have already heard of Jordan, the Palestinian Authority and other Arab allies having warned the White House of severe repercussions should it proceed with the move. The threats included a threatened review of bilateral relations with both the US and Israel plus warnings of an upsurge in violence should the embassy be relocated. Please do not tell us that the Trump campaign were not aware of these ramifications when they followed the well-worn path of lying to AIPAC knowing full well that they would turn everything over to the State department and Pentagon and either or both would come back with a report warning against such rash actions as they would inflame the world and the ramifications far outweighed any benefit if there could even be an argument that there exists a benefit. Further, they would question the expense and warn that such simply was politically risky should any of the threats of violence be traced to having moved the Embassy, which the State department would warn they would most likely find as the cause of any terrorism targeting American facilities overseas.

 

So, Trump is not going to be as pro-Israel as advertised, and why should he? Expecting President Trump to be more pro-Israel than Israel is ridiculous, as it should be. We learned this centuries ago and it was most succinctly stated by Rabbi Hillel who wisely asked, “If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?” When, as we mentioned yesterday, the Israeli Security Cabinet voted unanimously to delay discussion on any law annexing Maaleh Adumim, can we expect for President Trump to stick his neck out and move the American Embassy to Israel to Jerusalem when the Israelis main decision makers unanimously refused to even consider annexing just a suburb of East Jerusalem? Of course that would be ridiculous. For proof just read Hillel above and it plainly states that step one will always be us being for what we hold dear before we can expect others to act similarly in our interests. Perhaps it would be a good idea to inundate the members of the Knesset’s e-mails with copies of Hillel’s quote followed by a simply Yiddish question, “Nu?” implying to ask what have you done recently which changes anything. Israel acting weak and timid reflects on everything worldwide simply because Israel is the exemplary representation of Jewish pride and strength and of late Israel has shown neither for quite some time.

 

When Israel acts decisively and boldly projects strength and confidence taking whatever steps necessary to protect their people and the future of the Jewish State, it becomes reflected in the actions by Jews in the world and affects the way Jews are treated. When Israel demands respect as she did during the first half of her brief history, the world respected the Jews and allowed for Jews to be proud and live holding their heads high. As Israel has mired herself and given concession after concession with nothing to show for any of it as the land for peace more represented land for terrorism and Israel appeared weak and Jews started to wear long faces and are soon, if not already, hang their heads and shuffle along giving once again the image of the Jew ready to be kicked and ill-regarded. The ghetto Jews, as it had been called throughout much of modern history, was again the view. The Jews were those people who are to be blamed for all the ills in the world, all the wars, all the hatreds, all the destitution, all of any and every evil imaginable and the Jew could be kicked and spat upon and they would shuffle off accepting any scorn. This persona has become accepted on all too many college and university campuses in the developed world. As Israel is demeaned and seen as threatened and not really taking actions to protect themselves, this places the Jews across the world in jeopardy of attack and other forms of anti-Semitism. These acts have already made numerous cities across Europe actually dangerous to Jews to even so threatening that, as in Malmo, most of the Jews are packing up and departing. The numbers of Jews making Aliyah from France this past year was the highest since the end of World War II and many times the average for any year in the past half century. Further, the Arab world is using their oil wealth to finance those NGOs who coordinate numerous campus groups in anti-Israel and anti-Zionist programs with very obvious and well-coordinated demonstrations and events demeaning Israel and Zionism and by an extension anti-Semitism as many times these actions also lead to direct targeting of the Jews on the campus sometimes placing their lives and health in danger.

 

As noted in the articles linked above, there are campuses in Britain where Jews do not even apply as the atmosphere is that toxic. This is a direct result of Israeli passive resistance to terrorism and apparent trepidation to acting boldly to suppress those acting against her. This has to end but for that to come to pass Israel will need to elect a far more active and bold leadership. This can be done but first an election is necessary and the Israeli Zionists and related activists will need find and promote someone to lead one of the existing parties and then support that party with sufficient votes that they either are the party making the coalition or be the main partner in a coalition with sufficient influence to force definitive action. The United States election set in place an opportunity of a lifetime. The election of Donald Trump as President and the fact that for the first time in memory the House of Representatives, the Senate, the White House and soon even the United States Supreme Court will be Republican or conservative making support for Israel, especially as a fair percentage of Democrats in Congress also support Israel, a given, freeing Israel to act without any ramifications from Washington. This is a situation which has not been seen since the founding of the modern state of Israel and may never return again should it disappear in the next election, a certain possibility as the opponents to President Trump will throw everything they have to at least take back the House of Representatives if not also the Senate. There are no guarantees in American politics but the stars and planets have aligned along with the Congress and White House to favor a bold and take-action Israel, now all that is necessary is leadership willing to take action which will define the state of Israel and the state of Israeli politics for the foreseeable future.

 

The unfortunate unanimous vote by the Prime Minister’s Security Cabinet to delay considerations on annexing Maaleh Adumim must be laid in the lap of Prime Minister Netanyahu as well as any leaders of the presumed Zionist and Religious Zionist parties who are represented in the Security Cabinet such as Naftali Bennet. There can be no excuse other than fear of retributions from European nations who are acting with ill will already towards Israel and also allowing similar disregards for their Jewish citizens throughout their college and university communities and even in many cities and towns. The BDS movement is making strides thanks to the recent United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 which was facilitated by President Obama who had been rumored was personally involved along with his Secretary of State John Kerry as a means of tying incoming President Trump’s hands in dealing with Israel and in the Middle East. The best way to counter the disastrous implications of that UNSC Resolution is strong and defined actions performed as an in your face Israeli response. The UNSC will not be following up and passing any similar or other damaging resolution against Israel as President Trump will reinstate the American veto of such damaging resolution in the UNSC. The message must be delivered to the Knesset that the irons are hot and it is time to put the hammer to anvil and beat out a favorable fait accompli. The time to annex not only Maaleh Adumim, but Bet El, Ariel, Betar Illit, Modi’in Illit, Har Gilo, Gush Etzion at the least and all of Judea and Samaria returning the PLO, Fatah, and all other terrorist affiliated persons to Tunis or wherever in Europe they would be welcome and give the Arab Palestinians their first hopes for a bright and unencumbered future free of the kleptocracy which has stolen all hope from them for the past near quarter of a century. Will the world, particularly Europe, explode in indignation? Probably, but ride out their initial explosion and with time they will tire of complaining and when things here in Israel settle and the Arabs are slowly but surely incorporated into Israeli society and their lives improve immeasurably, there will be less and less reason to protest eventually leaving no reasons to protest. The future with a secure Israel, and this should be the sole consideration of the Knesset, is with Israel with all the lands promised us between the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and not sharing it with any terrorist nest guaranteed to feed the world’s need to hate Israel, and by equal measure hate Jews. Israel could do more to guarantee her future and destroy anti-Semitism by simply annexing all of Judea and Samaria, removing those who would continue being a menace and reward those Arabs who desire living in peace with equality and security for all. By acting to assure Israel’s future and boldly protecting Israel, Israel would herself be combatting anti-Semitism in the world with better efficiency than any other actions could dream of accomplishing. The first question is can Netanyahu act or is he so damaged by the strains of leadership that he is no longer capable of acting definitively and securing the Israeli future? The last question is are the Zionist Israelis organized enough to start and continue programs and demonstrations demanding that the Knesset and the Prime Minister with his Security Cabinet act definitively with a minimum of delay as time is precious, and if we might repeat Rabbi Hillel, “If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?”

As Long as They All Hate

 

We have always held that if you are going to be denounced, sanctioned, held as a diabolical daemon in the United Nations General Assembly, receive threats from the European Union and member states and bludgeoned with words of war from the Arab world and generally made a pariah; then you may as well do whatever serves your needs and to hell with everyone else. We have seen the guaranteed death of the two state solution in any number of ways. The Palestinian education, or should we say indoctrination, system has set their belief structure that the only peaceful solution left to them is the complete destruction of Israel and the death of every Jew. Just for clarification, they teach the death of every Jew, not Israeli and not just Israeli Jews but all Jews everywhere which is possible only should they conquer the world. The PLO Charter has fairly similar wordings, goals and aims as does the Hamas Charter which also calls for their conquest of the world. People laugh when they are told these things and claim that nobody is so delusional as to believe they are going to conquer the world, that’s just plain crazy. Well, yes, it is crazy but that does not mean they do not believe they will actually conquer the world. It does not matter if the leaders know that world conquest is a pipe dream, as long as the people are sold on that idea, they will fight until their dying day, which their fighting may advance by years through another senseless death in a war that cannot be won and also will not end until totally and utterly defeated. Keep in mind that the Islamic State also expects to conquer the world, Iran’s leadership sells the people on their conquering the world; the Imams in Saudi Arabia believe they will conquer the world under Wahhabism; the Imams teaching at Al-Azhar University in Cairo (pictured below), Egypt, the leading center for Islamic knowledge in the world, also sells their Imams on the fact that Islam is destined to conquer the world and it will be their version of Sunni Islam which will accomplish this; and the Ottoman Turks also set out to conquer the world and succeeded in conquering the Islamic world, or at least a good part of it. In Islam, world conquest is one of the main tenets after the Five Pillars of Islam which are Shahadah which means belief that there is only one god, Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger; Salah which means prayers are to be given Allah five times a day; Zakat which means giving alms, charity, of 2.5% of income; Hajj which is making the pilgrimage to the house of Allah in Mecca at least once during your life; and Fasting which is the fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramadan. So, why not just add another pillar and admit that Islam demands that Muslims not rest until the entire world has fallen before them and all have either converted or been put to the sword. The Jizya tax for unbelievers to pay as protection under Islam is a temporary fix which in time is presumed to pass and the other two alternatives are to be implemented, convert or die. So, what does one do knowing that their problem with the Arab Palestinians can only be resolved to their satisfaction with your death and the conquest of your country by whatever means are necessary and that no rest can be afforded Israel as the land has been declared a Waqf which means that “every grain of sand is a holy piece of Islam” according to the definition of Waqf being a religious endowment of an area, in this case all of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea according to the Palestinian leadership.

So, the enemy refuses any compromise and is willing, as we have already witnessed, to send all ages of youth starting with ten year old children armed with knives who are sworn to jihad and will attack as long as they have life left in them even if mortally wounded they will still attempt to kill whomever comes close including aid personnel who are attempting to treat their wounds. That is the level of fanaticism faced currently in Israel and coming rapidly to Europe and possibly beyond into the United States, Canada and anywhere else taking in the “Syrian refugees” who have numbers of males between the ages of fourteen and forty and who are unaccompanied by a wife, girlfriend or children. These are not refugees people, this is a fighting force, an advance column which will be learned in quick order, ask the French as they are entering the first phase of the Islamic war for the conquest of France. Israel has been dealing with this war from day one when on May 15, 1948, when Israel was first declared a nation with her borders defined as being from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, sounds familiar doesn’t it, and six nations’ armies invaded from every border with the genocidal intent of slaughtering every Jew and taking their wealth and possibly enslaving many of the women to be used to propagate more Muslim children. They promised wealth, herds of sheep, free land and houses, all the belongings of the Jew and all other spoils of war as defined in the Quran, which includes the enslavement of their defeated opponents women and the taking of children too young to be educated and have a strong attachment to any religion and might make good Muslims after being indoctrinated. That definition of the rewards for jihad against Israel and the Jews has not changed and if you die while performing jihad you go instantly to Islamic heaven where there are lush fields of grass, waterfalls, rivers, wines, and seventy-two permanent virgins who regain their virginity after you take them such that they are always fresh young, virgin, raven haired and beautiful. You cannot make this stuff up, well, apparently you can but your name would need to be Muhammad as such is beyond our imagination. Our imagination is so poor that we can only find one answer to this situation and it will not make even many of the Israeli politicians happy as they are mired in a false promise which was made at Oslo in the accursed Oslo Accords. There was the invention of two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. There was only one problem with that agreement, one side lied. The actions of Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian indoctrinated generations since 1993 and even before have proven that the Arab Palestinians will not accept two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security, they want it all and they want it now or whenever as long as it takes to force the Jews from their lands or murder them where they stand and take the lands which Oslo defined as to be shared; they have decided they do not wish to share or play well with others. This is the reality from which Israel has to decide what she wishes to do.

 

So, what are the choices and how can we rate them for viability? Well, we can continue to offer new and slightly different proposals for establishing the two state solution as we have been doing since 1993 in September. It was a sunny Monday afternoon on the White House Lawns in Washington D.C., the thirteenth of September to be exact, and the negotiations have continued ever since. Since that time the Israelis have been systematically driven back one concession at a time while the Palestinians refused to even ratify their acceptance of the Oslo Accords, everybody has simply assumed their accepting it formally and never checked, or cared to check. Their one necessary concession was to change their Charter so it would no longer call for the destruction of Israel and they were only pressed once where the United States State Department joined a session of the Palestinian Parliament to witness their vote to change the Charter and they took a vote and passed a measure calling for a committee to be appointed to assess a proper and acceptable alteration to comply with the agreement to change the Charter. They never appointed the committee and never changed a word of their Charter which remains calling for the complete destruction of Israel. Since then Israel had gone from the original plan where Israel retained Area C, the Arab Palestinians retained Area A and the sides were to negotiate where to divide Area B to now where there are demands for Israel to return to the borders from before the 1967 Six Day War and surrender the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem which has numerous Jewish holy sites and all of Area C which also holds valuable and precious Jewish holy sites and historic locations and there have been hints that Israel should also surrender a path to Gaza straight across the midlands of Israel cutting the Jewish State into halves and even calls for surrender of much of the Galilee and most of the Negev Desert. The aim is obvious, make Israel completely indefensible and then destroy it in quick order after every inch which could be negotiated had been taken through combination of threats and twisting world opinion, and that world opinion had been very generous to the Arab Palestinians as they are willing to sacrifice all of Israel as long as doing so comes with a promise to end all Islamic violence in the Western world and they are willing to take their word for that. The catch is they need Israel to agree and that point has yet to be reached, but give the world and the masters at giving concessions, also called the Knesset, time and we might get there. The Knesset actually approved the gifting of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority who within a short period lost it to Hamas who has since used it as a launching area of rockets into civilian areas of Israel and for tunneling into Israel with the intent of accomplishing raids resulting in kidnapped IDF or civilian Israelis. That was how the Gilad Shalit abduction and ransom was conducted. The world also seems to be fixated on Israel controlling their border with Hamas and Gaza despite tons of goods, food, medicine and other non-military goods transferred through the operative crossing daily where any government or NGO can have non-military goods transferred to Gaza simply by shipping their goods through the Ashdod, Israel port as Israel has legitimate need to assure that no military use goods are given over to Hamas, a recognized internationally as a terror origination. What is curious is these same nations have no problem with the complete closure of Gaza’s border with Egypt where nothing passes through in either direction legally for months and even years at a time. Israel has treated Gazans in Israeli hospitals including Hamas leader Haniyeh’s daughter treated in Israel. At another time, if you trust Israeli new reports, Hamas leader Haniyeh’s mother-in-law was also treated in an Israeli hospital. And according to Reuters in their last line almost as an excuse our mention of this but, one of Haniyeh’s granddaughters was treated in an Israeli hospital. But Israel is accused of committing genocide in Gaza. They keep using that word and I do not think it means what they think it means.

 

So, we have an intransigent enemy which will only be satisfied when they are walking on our graves as they would have long ago been destroyed as who needs a Jewish cemetery in the middle of an Arab Muslim Palestinian entity, which also happens to be dysfunctional and a failed entity incapable of supporting itself and completely dependent on foreign funding just to feed its people. And we have Israel, the only Jewish State in a sea of Arab and Muslim states despite the Arab Palestinian argument that there are no Muslim nations, which is true because their claim is there is not one such nation and they are correct, there are twenty-one Arab Muslim States and they desire to be the twenty-second. The world is willing to grant the Arabs Palestinians their demands as long as these demands are couched in polite terms and do not completely eradicate Israel, at least this is quite true in the United Nations General Assembly but thus far has not survived and passed in the Security Council where a veto threat always seems to succeed in preventing such a measure of passing and has even prevented such from being presented as their voting it down would set a bad precedent, or at least that has been the reason given by the Arab Palestinian leadership. Recent developments have shown that the veto protection has become something which some have decided can be used as a bludgeon to force Israeli leadership to toe a line drawn outside of Israel. This threat has been intimated but has yet to actually been publicly deployed though the possibility that it was threatened in private discussions between high officials in both nations has been breached as having been a possibility in many an editorial. Still, the fact that one of the candidates for the highest office did spend close to or possible more than a half hour berating the Prime Minister of Israel because he had the audacity to present the Israeli position regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 (the permanent members of the Security Council which are the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain and France and the plus one was Germany and, of course, Iran) which are claimed to permit Iran to continue parts of their nuclear research and increasingly over a decade be permitted greater range of research and development with their potentially producing nuclear weapon as soon as eight years according to some and definitively after the decade when all restrictions would end (the entire deal can be read here in a translation of the Russian copy into English and reformatted for easier reading). Another little tip of something not well known, Iran had been arming Hamas in Gaza and has also been trying to find inroads to arm and aid thus bringing into their influence the Palestinian Authority and the PLO.

 

So, what can be done about this untenable situation? How about a one state solution and the Arab Palestinians will be permitted to vote in their own local elections within Areas A and B while both Palestinians and Israelis will be permitted to reside in Area C but Arab Palestinians will not have voting rights as they will be considered resident aliens within Israel. Israel gets what was promised as their minimum border according to the original intents and promises under the Oslo Accords, as that at the very least should be recognized and granted. By the way, nobody other than Israel gets a vote on that decision. Arab Palestinians will have free travel throughout Israel with checkpoints initially and as the violence ends, the checkpoints will correspondingly end. Any Arab Palestinian desiring to take advantage of an opportunity to reside outside of Israeli influences can take a buyout offer which will include a generous price for their assets such as property, business and other recognized assets plus a flight to a neutral nation and then the flight to their chosen destination, they will need proof their destination will accept them, and an additional sum as determined as a resettlement assistance. Such an offer will be available for a set period, perhaps one year, and afterwards the remaining Arab Palestinians will be considered to be resident aliens with semiautonomous rights in Areas A and B. Any act of terrorism such as attacking people with no cause other than jihad or other terrorist acts will result in deportation either immediately or after serving any prison sentence handed down by the courts. Eventually, it may become possible to allow Arab Palestinians to apply for Israeli citizenship, but that will take time and the terrorist violence will need to have ceased before such can even be considered. The Arab Palestinians will retain the right to own property and to practice their religion freely. Initially the Madrassas will be monitored to assure they are not teaching jihad or Muslim supremacy doctrines and those crossing these lines will be warned once and if their transgressing the set limits continues they will be closed. The UNRWA schools and other public education will come under Israeli control and will retain any Arab Palestinian teachers and staff but will now teach an approved version of the Israeli basic education, especially when it comes to history, the sciences and Hebrew will be a required course so that when the time arrives that incorporating them if they choose into Israeli society as full citizens they will speak Hebrew which is an aim of the education system in Israel as well as the absorption programs for Jews making Aliyah. The Arab Palestinian leadership, especially the upper levels of Fatah and the PLO will necessarily be deported as there is no path which appears possible to incorporate them peaceably into this solution. They will not be granted any remuneration as they have stolen sufficient monies over the years to cover any relocation they choose even if it be a mansion along the Riviera. This may not be a perfect plan but what exists now is far worse for both the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel cannot be expected to continue this charade where their citizens are but targets which the Arab Palestinian school system teaches do not deserve to live and are a mortal enemy and are going to murder the Arab Palestinians unless they kill all the Israelis first. That has to end as it has ruined the lives of two generations of Arab Palestinians by filling them with hatred and nothing else to base their future upon. They are taught that as long as Israel exists their lives will be worthless and the Jews have stolen all opportunities and the only path to retrieve opportunity is to destroy Israel. That is not an acceptable situation and there is but one way to resolve that, end the Arab occupation and indoctrination on what is legally under all international laws Israeli soil. Publish the Levy Report and act on it as this situation is untenable for all involved and is destroying the Arab Palestinians’ futures by selling them destruction as their only option.

Where We Are and Where it All Came From

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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