Most of us who grace these postings and pages already support Israel, and for that we should all be glad. But what is coming will require a far more difficult choice, the choice where supporting Israel interferes with one’s life and potentially livelihood as supporters of Israel become pariahs in their own communities. Thankfully there will be exceptions to this rule in places outside of Israel. The American Heartlands, which area is referred to as flyover country by the political elites, as to who gave them that title it remains unknown and suspected it was an example of self-aggrandizement of the most grave and dishonest kind. Thus far supporting Israel resolutely and actively defending her from fallacious slanders often used as facts has cost us at most a couple of acquaintances who proved unacceptable by their own hatreds for Israel and possibly banned us from the watercooler conversations where the most erudite of the groups often proved to be devoid of facts concerning Israel. These are sacrifices, though some amongst us might call such revelations a blessing, are usually not life-changing except in the rarest of cases where one realizes their superiors at their place of employment hold animosity for Israel and this also effects their judgements and conduct in relations concerning work related items such as evaluations, promotions or simply the work atmosphere. You probably were considering finding a new job where the air was cleaner and the people were of a higher caliber of integrity. What is approaching is much, much worse and the ramifications of supporting Israel, or even being suspected of such support, will make life most difficult and in some places life may become threatened to the point that flight may become the only option. Simply worded, supporting Israel is about to become perhaps the most important and significant decision you will ever make for the rest of your life.

 

We are witnessing the spread of anti-Semitism throughout Europe and do not kid yourself that it is solely from amongst the immigrant population alone; the indigenous peoples also are reverting to what has been the European default position of hatred for the Jews. The Middle East and North Africa remain a place where nations may retain a few hundred Jews who are the token they allow some rights so as to claim they are not anti-Semites and their hatreds for Israel are politically and not racially motivated. They know they are being disingenuous but also know that this does not matter in the least as the leaders of many nations outside their region will bless their claims in return for the same when they use similar arguments about their societies. We have seen how in much of Europe the Jewish neighborhoods and places of gathering did not receive any protection at the level which was necessary to prevent the shooting and other attacks used exclusively to murder Jews. The piece of scum who assaulted the Hyper Cachet kosher market down the street expressed that he chose this particular market and timed his attack for when Jews would most likely be buying their Shabbat meals thus giving him a maximum number of Jewish victims. Where this confession is common knowledge today, I ask what will be the memory thirty years hence, twenty years, or even ten? How about within a few weeks? For the proof of the extent leaders of the so-called free world where honesty and truth are presumably prized as required of those holding high office, let me quote United States President Obama speaking of this very incident a mere few weeks after the horrific murders at Charlie Hebdo and the Hyper Cachet where he stated, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” Randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris? Don’t tell me that he just didn’t remember that the Hyper Cachet was a kosher deli and market or that the terrorist murderer chose this particular location as he sought to murder as many Jews as he could as not knowing these facts is unconscionable. I would understand his forgetting the name of the market, Hyper Cachet, as it does not easily come to mind as it is rather meaningless in English. But that the little terrorist monster was hunting for Jewish victims as he had confessed is just slightly too important and relevant that for the President of the United States to give such short shrift to the targeting of Jews so as to refer to them as “a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris” is simply evil. The world will soon find that this will have become acceptable and even expected of the media as well as the political class. Jews will start to find certain doors closing to them refusing to bring in fresh Jews such that as the older Jews die off, so will the Jewish presence in some of the most prestigious jobs markets of the world. Paralleling the abuse and hatreds placed against Israel, so will it be for the supporters of Israel and the Jews who will be guilty as Israel simply due to their religion. This is where the world is heading and it often appears to be bull-rushing through all the barriers which might have installed some level of sanity to the coming world we will all likely live to see.

 

Israel must refuse the invasive attempts to steal from her the lands for yet another Arab failed terror state situated perfectly to threaten the very heart of Israel. This is not by accident as this took almost twenty years for everything to be turned on its head. Originally it was common knowledge that Israel would retain the lands liberated from Jordan as the lands were liberated which implies that they were occupied and that the real owner of these lands had retaken them. Then there was this invented nation of Palestine which was based in theory on a General Assembly resolution turned down, thus making it invalid, which had suggested an even division of the lands. Eventually Palestine came to mean all of the lands liberated by Israel. This simply meant giving up all of the lands gained from the Six Day War and the lands from Jordan were not to be returned to Jordan but instead to be turned over to terrorist masters playing politicians, and not all that well. There are already the beginnings of a movement by Bedouins to claim their own nation in all of the Negev Regions. This is being supported and even aided through advisors by the same people backing the Palestinian Arab claims. Then there will be the claims by Hezballah on the Galilee and returning the Golan Heights to Syria. What would such leave the Jews, the metropolitan region of Tel Aviv for as long as they might hold it. These other claimants are the reason that giving away any parts of Israel must not be permitted to occur otherwise every inch of Israel will be claimed by somebody and all the lands will be given away and the Jews cleansed from the lands. What happens when the final lands are gifted away and there is no nation willing to take the now refugee Jews? We remember what was the solution to the Jewish problem the last time the entire free world refused to accept the Jews; so why does anybody believe it will be different this time? You say that nobody has a claim to the central Tel Aviv region? I am willing to bet that should a group of people claiming to be the last remnants from Santorini who fled their Island home right before the eruption and assumed end of the Minoan civilization, claimed they took to their boats and rowed due east and eventually set up their new homelands just south by a couple of miles from Tel Aviv and that entire area belongs to them, the world would grant them that remainder leaving the Jews nowhere to live and at the whims of a world unwilling to lift a finger to assist except to steal the land from under their feet. As far as what the Jews were to do, they would suggest treading water for as long as possible and then, well, who knew they couldn’t swim forever, anyways, why didn’t they just part the Mediterranean Sea and live on the land thus created? Perhaps there is a degree of hyperbole, but supporting Israel will be as if to fight against such attempts and perceived eventualities. It is true that Israel had best grow a backbone and a few other body parts to facilitate taking a stand and apply the treaties what exist and are signed by the entirety of the world granting Israel the lands described by the Balfour Declarations and this was incorporated into the San Remo Conference Agreement which set up the Mandate system. The British did their best to prevent there ever being a Jewish State, they failed. What we’re seeing now is the next assault to destroy that which the British proved unable to prevent. If Israel is to survive it is going to take those who support her to speak up at every opportunity and even force the making of such opportunities to give people pause to read the promise made in 1920 and start a new conversation which does not give away lands overseeing the heart of Israel. We have International Law on our side, so why not scream so from the highest peaks. Let us at least open and start conversations supporting the legal definition of Israel which is the real claim of “from the Jordan to the Mediterranean, the lands belong to Israel and the Judean.”

When it comes to the subject of Israel both United States and United Nations are first class Hypocrites. Let us start with the United Nations where Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in a written complaint to the Security Council stating, “I deplore the fact that at least forty-four Palestinians were killed as a result of Israeli actions and at least two-hundred-twenty-seven injured at United Nations premises being used as emergency shelters.” There were a few rather significant details which were probably missed in this one-sided complaint such as the fact that rockets were fired from locations adjacent to or on top of UNRWA facilities or that during Operation Protective Edge three separate schools were found to have caches of rockets that the UNRWA staff allowed Hamas or Islamic Jihad to remove them instead of having them destroyed or turned over to neutral observers in order to allow for them to be removed from storage under the inspection and safe passage added by UNRWA personnel observing such removals. Such actions as permitting the storage of these weapons and then granting their removal to the hostile force which had stored them illegally in these UNRWA schools made UNRWA complicit in this criminal use of their facilities. The fact that one UNRWA health clinic was itself simply nothing more than a trap set with eighty kilograms of explosives which were built into the walls and otherwise it having served as a tunnel entrance was yet another piece of damning evidence of UNRWA complicity. Beneath the clinic were found intersecting tunnels accessible from within but the real criminal act was the detonation of those explosives set into the clinic’s walls during its construction, a construction dome under United Nations supervision where UNRWA provided their trusted employees to oversee the construction who also permitted the instillation of explosives knowing the intent was to kill Israelis in any conflict where they could be drawn to enter the clinic. This was done during Operation Protective Edge when very likely combatants were observed entering the clinic implying tunnel access or other related activity within the clinic. Upon IDF troops entry of the clinic to investigate the explosives were detonated murdering in an UNRWA complicit ambush in conjunction with Hamas of three IDF soldiers; Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion, hy”d; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion, hy”d; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy”d.

 

In related information omitted from the Secretary General’s letter of condemnation was that the deaths of over a dozen innocent Arab residents of Gaza who were being shielded in the United Nations built Shifa Hospital which everyone were so quick to place the blame on Israel proved to have been a misfired Hamas Fajr-5 Iranian-made 100 kg warhead missile which was targeted at Israel which caused the destruction, but that little fact was not considered important to note as the Shifa Hospital is also run by UNRWA. Of course the United States refused to be left out of this story as well as the United Nations during the course of the Israeli operation it was Israel that was criticized by both the United Nations and the United States for attacking UNRWA facilities. After Israeli returned fire using data from targeting given by counter artillery/rocket/missile radar system to provide targeting resolution of the launch sites, which resulted in these schools being within the blast radius of the return fire of targeting of Israeli civilians by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the same expectations of the United Nations and the United States Department of State in condemning Israel for targeting UNRWA schools when in fact Israel was targeting active launch sites which were aimed specifically at Israeli civilian targets. See picture below which illustrates the Radar Trajectory of the barrage launched from within Gaza by either Hamas or Islamic Jihad or other allied with them depicting the strike points for four rockets, including the short round strike on the Shifa Hospital which Israel was blamed by Hamas and Media accepted Hamas talking point unchecked, one falling in the Mediterranean Sea, another short round striking the Shati Refugee Camp and lastly, one running true targeting Ashkelon which was intercepted by the IDF Iron Dome system.

Speaking for the United States Department of State, Jennifer Psaki stated, “The United States is appalled by today’s disgraceful shelling outside an UNRWA school in Rafah sheltering some three-thousand displaced persons, in which at least ten more Palestinian civilians were tragically killed. We once again stress that Israel must do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.” According to Agency France Press (AFP), an IDF spokesperson confirmed it had fired on a target “in the vicinity” of the school. Additionally, the IDF pressed the importance this is being given and the review is ongoing stating, “The IDF targeted three PIJ (Islamic Jihad) terrorists on board a motorcycle in the vicinity of an UNRWA school in Raffia. The IDF is reviewing the consequences of this strike.” According to Ms. Psaki, “The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians. We call for a full and prompt investigation of this incident as well as the recent shelling of other UNRWA schools.” So as not to allow the United Nations be left out and the United States have all the apparent glee in condemning Israel for defending her citizen and valuing their safety primarily while conducting on a war footing, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, “This madness must stop.” He also demanded that these actions by Israel constitute “yet another gross violation of international humanitarian law.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon continued his assault on Israel demanding, “This attack, along with other breaches of international law, must be swiftly investigated and those responsible held accountable. It is a moral outrage and a criminal act.”

 

But now comes the United Nations report which looked into these seven attacks on United Nations schools in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, the same UNRWA schools in the above situation and every other single shell of artillery or other munitions utilized by Israel in their previously determined criminal act which must not be considered an act of self-defense but a blatant attack which has been established and assumed by this report. The report has been disclosed to Hamas, possibly searching for more damning information be it fabricated or potentially supported by supposition of Israeli intent outside self-defense despite evidence to the contrary. Hamas’s warm acceptance of the report is sufficiently telling and it being a United Nations report which relied heavily on UNRWA supplied information on these strikes. There is one question which will never be asked nor will it be answered or included in any reference to UNRWA provided information, namely, was the UNRWA official in any manner or form also a member of Hamas, Islamic Jihad or other related organization or group? I am aware that even thinking such might be relevant makes me unqualified to comment on anything compiled by the United Nations because I am obviously one of those Zionist stooges who actually believes that facts matter as do Jewish lives. Since these strikes were counter-radar-tracking electronic aiming which permits the placing of return fire to within a ten meter area centered on the launch site, a three round return of fire should neutralize that firing position, but if I have my information right, the IDF often uses a single round depending on a minimalist return strike in order to minimize damage to structures near to these launch sites which are almost always next to or on the roof of United Nations structures such as UNRWA schools (or dare I refer to them as rocket storage facilities), clinics (or dare I claim these are nothing but explosive rigged walls over tunnel access simply waiting for IDF soldiers to enter before being detonated), hospitals (or do we dare mention the Hamas command and control main facility sits in the basement of the largest hospital in Gaza technically making it a valid target yet it remains standing for some reason, potentially Israeli compassions and restraint?) and other such United Nations sites such as the soccer field which hid a number of underground rocket launching locations which flip open the roof, fire, close roof and return to looking like a soccer field.

 

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri stated, emphasis or translation added in parenthesis, “We call on the world to send the murderous occupation (Israel) leaders to international courts, and we call on the (Arab Palestinian) Authority to investigate this report and to persecute (persecute was actually the way it was presented from the source) the occupation (Israel) in international courts.” I guess the best way to end this report is with another United States threat and what we feel would be the best answer to the American hypocrisy. United States Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman demanded, referring to presumed next Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that she has chosen to have “raised questions about his commitment to the two-state solution.” Undersecretary of State Sherman expressed further misgivings about Benyamin Netanyahu’s changing positions on the formation of a Palestinian state during his time as head of the government. This caused her pause and great consternations which were deeply troubling. One might even feel pity for this woman who is so troubled by Israel but then she expressed such things as her claim that the State Department and Obama administration will be watching very closely to see what happens on this [Palestinian] issue after the new government is formed. Just as I thought that perhaps her concerns and expressing the willingness to wait and discern the position of the government after such was formed and then she has to go and state, “If the new Israeli government is seen to be stepping back from its commitment to a two-state solution that will make our job in the international arena much tougher… it will be harder for us to prevent internationalizing the conflict.”

 

The threat of not being able to prevent the internationalizing the conflict is so beyond troubling that it reaches well past damning as it is actually quite childish. The United States can simply state in the Security Council the same promise they tell their Jewish minions at the New York Times, namely that ‘the United States backs Israel in determining their own fate through direct negotiations and the United States will veto any resolution that unfairly targets solely Israel and is not balanced.’ Meanwhile, at a White House meet and greet the President spoke with the heads of Jewish organizations across the spectrum of Jewish organizations to assure them that all is well between Israel and the United States. The President also implied that there is a lot more concern in having the Jewish organizations be on board with the Iran deal should one be signed and presented to Congress and the President expressed wishes that they give the agreement a chance. This acute attention to the Iran nuclear weapons deal and the thinly veiled threats to throw Israel as red meat to the whims of the international attempts at forcing their idea of a solution on Israel while making no demands of the Arab Palestinian Authority leadership would be awarding Abbas and Hamas a recognized state with the maximalist borders pushing Israel back to the same starting gates which brought on only war and this time would only be different in that even should the Arab Palestinians shoot rockets onto the runways of Ben Gurion International Airport bringing all flights in and out of Israel basically to a standstill, and aim other rockets, larger rockets, at downtown Tel Aviv striking a number of the tallest skyscrapers and force three or four to collapse, would the world permit an assault to prevent further carnage or would Israel be locked from such actions.

 

It is understood that should the United Nations, in their furtive imaginations, force their idea of a solution that a number of factors would very soon thereafter come to fruition. The initial firing of a couple of thousand rockets, Grad and Katyusha short range rockets which do minimal damage but are still quite lethal, start fires and will destroy a small house or even apartment building killing numerous Israelis. The entirety of Israel made vulnerable to such rocket fire from the Judean Hills is beyond the capacity of just nine or even a dozen Iron Dome systems, it would require tens of such systems possibly even over a hundred to cover the entire region efficiently and effectively. Even so armed, there would be those which would get through and strike within the most densely populated areas in Israel. Just as the sparsity of population bordering Gaza near guarantees most unguided munitions will not hit anything vital nor would it kill anybody with minimal protections such as shelters, the area around Tel Aviv and overseen by the Judean Hills is as densely populated as the Gaza area was sparse, thus any rocket fired is likely to do harm and cause serious damage, the probabilities are diametrically opposites. After a week of such rocket fire Israel would have no choice but to strike into Judea and Samaria and destroy whatever rockets and rocket supplies and machines for producing them. That would be but a temporary fix and Israel would be brought before the General Assembly, perhaps the Security Council, and be reprimanded for their invasion of a United Nations member state and not simply bringing the problem to the attention of the United Nations and allow them to get right on it in a couple of months after it had been completely validated that Israel has actually been attacked by the actual forces of the Arab state of Palestine or had it been terrorists for which Palestine must not be burdened with responsibility of preventing every terror attack and it will be determined they are doing everything that can be expected from them. Eventually the United Nations will respond to the Arab state of Palestine requesting international peacekeepers be placed on their border with Israel to protect the innocent Arabs from those horrific warmongering Israelis (Jews). The international peacekeepers will serve their purpose of preventing Israel incursions into the Arab nation of Palestine but will also be true to their mission statement which will not instruct them to intercede or interdict with the firing of rockets, missiles, artillery or other projectiles from within that Arab state onto Israelis and their properties. Eventually Israel will be faced with the choice of no longer existing as a nation or to retake all of Judea and Samaria and forcing every known terrorist or operative, officer, representative or anybody inferred to have any connection to terrorism or the launching of projectiles into Israel completely out of Judea and Samaria annexing every inch of the lands by right of international law implementing the San Remo Conference and its results and the United Nations guarantees of enforcing the terms of the Mandates set up by that treaty which was enacted with the unanimous agreement of the member states of the League of Nations and the United States signed as well in a treaty with the British and confirmed by Article 80 in the United Nations Charter. The residents under the areas under Israeli rule have the guarantee to individual rights, property rights, religious rights but are not guaranteed political rights so such may be withheld and permitted as per the necessities as determined to be in the best interests of Israel. Such would likely mean that with time these Arabs would be granted either some form of autonomy or granted political rights within Israel. The granting of an Arab state without any Arab recognition of Israeli right to exist would be a disaster simply waiting to happen and such would be triggered by the first election of the forced takeover by Hamas. But why worry about the future, that has never seemed to be the concern of the United Nations in anything they have attempted from day two, we will grant them that ratifying their Charter may have been a step in the right direction, but that apparently went directly to their heads and they have never moved in a similar sensible direction since, so why start now.

Whether you need to look up the age of Israel or believe you know it in your memory as Israel declared her independence on May 14-15, 1948 making her obviously sixty-seven years old. But then there is another age which some Israelis can attest to as their families have resided mostly around Jerusalem since the Exodus from Egypt and they might claim that Eretz Yisroel is much closer to three-thousand-five-hundred plus years in age going back even before King David. Many people would choose to challenge any such claim, but then there are just as many who choose to challenge the existence of the reestablished nation of Israel. As a matter of fact, there are people and complete organizations, many of them financially supported by the European Union and almost every European nation, which spend all their efforts on attempts to undercut the Jewish claim to the lands in which Israel currently and historically exists and who simply wish only to deny the Jewish People any right to self-rule. Their entireties of efforts are expended towards returning the Jews to all living in exile at the mercies of the nations which may or may not choose to tolerate them. Some of these organizations’ dream is to not only deny the Jews their right to self-determinations but wish to eradicate the right of Jews to practice their religion simply by destroying Israel and refusing any land for Jews to practice their Judaism such that they will finally be rid of what they see as those pesky people. This is much of what is driving both the anti-Semitism and the anti-Zionism, which is nothing more than anti-Semitism on a national level where the large NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) function as they provide a secondary method for nations to destroy the Jewish state of Israel with a fair amount of deniability. When one traces the financing of these organizations one finds that some are directly financed by governments, some even by the European Union, and then there are an entire group of NGOs which are solely in the business of providing an additional layer of deniability as they finance predominantly other NGOs which attack Israel directly but also a few, a very few, NGOs which provide human relief organizations so as to be capable of pointing to those groups as proof they are only providing human relief and other NGOs. The reality is that there are nations who budget for efforts to destroy Israel though it is a part of their “dark funding” and is often part of their military budget.

 

Still, Israel has faced a few previous efforts to destroy her and put an end to the worship of Judaism and yet we are still facing efforts to put an end to the nation and People who refuse to bow before such pressures. Modern Israel and ancient Israel have a number of items in common. The old Israel used Shekels as their currency and modern Israel uses the NIS, New Israel Shekel. Both work a six day week with the Sabbath as its day of rest. Israel continues to use Jerusalem as its capital as it has since King David conquered Jerusalem and moved the Capital to Jerusalem. It is the homeland recognized by every Jew regardless of where they reside. Israel is predicted to be the inheritance of the Jewish People upon the coming of the Messiah. Normally one might find the Jews returning to their ancestral homelands would be well received as an initial sign of the world readying for the hoped for Messianic period predicted by the Jewish Bible, the Christian Bible and the Islamic Quran though each story has its own reasoning and orders of events and the eventual results. Perhaps this is enough to make some people very nervous and have aversions to such a situation. But there are other reasons of a religious origin which might be behind the hatreds of Israel and cause the opposition to the return of the Jews to their ancient lands.

 

But the most interesting reactions are from the secularists who have probably the greatest of difficulties with the rebirth of Israel. The secularists have a problem for which their belief structure holds no solution. Their societies are dying if left to their own devices, which in this case means that they are reproducing below even replacement rates. This means that as time continues forward their civilizations would slowly reduce in populations presumably, if allowed to run to its eventual result, there would be a generation with only one person and that generation would be the last and their civilization would have completely imploded. This phenomenon of negative growth is the result of modern structures of society which scientific developments and many of the modern beliefs which have found a replacement for faith in G0d with a belief that all things have a scientific explanation which will be revealed with sufficient time and research. Their belief is there is only those things which can be proven by science which are of any real importance and that everything else is simply false or emotional irrationality. The largest origins of such thoughts are those attached to religious beliefs and since G0d and religious belief are incapable of being scientifically proven and thus simply primitive beliefs which have no place within modern scientific society. Looking at Europe one can see these results of this change in the Christian society which was predominantly what existed before and after the Holocaust and the flight of the remainder of the Jews after World War II. Some fled after returning to their homes after surviving the worst horrors of the Nazi persecutions only to be met by hostile atmosphere forcing them to realize that their home now belonged to a new family and that they no longer had any place in their home-town or anyplace else in Europe so they either left for Israel or emigrated to be with relatives in the United States if they were so fortunate. Some even moved to the United States simply from seeing that they had no real reason or future in Europe, even some who resided in England and served in the British military battle against the Japanese in Burma or against the Nazis in Europe and could have met a woman in Bombay, India or in the continent of Europe and then married and left London to finally end up living in Washington D. C. and later in the Maryland suburbs where they raised two children and eventually brought much of the remainder of their family from Britain. The young man after the war was fortunate in the fact that one of his older sisters married an American who was amongst those who were, as a description used during the war, Over paid, Over sexed and Over here. This marriage by his sister allowed for he and his wife to move to the United States where I was the son and first born child they raised.

 

The thing which has made the slow slide into extinction be European Caucasian society also is true about the Caucasian society in the United States, just at a slightly slower rate of decline. The reason behind this is partly due to the death of religion and the acceptance of certain devices by which children have become an option which some women and many men prefer to not invest the effort, riches, time and other sacrifices which are required for raising children. The ability to use birth control or to have an abortion has made pregnancy optional and sufficient sectors of our societies have chosen to opt out of the parenting investment. The one potential saving grace is there is a group amongst the Western societies which have positive growth numbers above the just over two children per woman rate, and those are the religious, a small subsection of society which is a smaller minority in Europe than in the rest of Western civilization, especially the United States. The proof of this is found in two places, the census statistics and the empty pews and seats in the churches, cathedrals, synagogues and other houses of worship. The exception is the place of worship of the immigrant populations, the mosques. There is one nation which many claim is a Western nation due to its modern appearance and a large presence of Europeans, though approximately half the population comes from Spanish roots as well as from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as a result of pogroms and other afflictions pressuring them to leave as a result of the Islamic world’s reaction to the formation of Israel over the first decade after Israel’s founding. Many the Arab and Muslim nation forced the vast majority of their Jews to leave with most heading to Israel with a smaller percentage heading either to Europe or the United States and Canada. Israel makes for an interesting comparison of the secular society and the religious society. While the secular society also suffers from the secular plague of having fewer children as a whole, their affliction is less severe than that of Europe which may be due to their being within a religious society where having children is treated as the blessing it is and thus there is some societal pressures to also have children. Even so, some of the increase in Caucasian population is also due to those Jews who have made Aliyah and moved to Israel. The other pressure which decreases numbers is the fact that Israel lives under threat of wars and terrorist attacks which more often targets young adults and those even younger within the population.

 

Still, on another front one might wonder why having Jews living in Israel would cause such dysfunctional behavior both in much of the Muslim world and so much of the Christian world? Neither the Christian Bible nor the early writings in the Quran called for the elimination of the Jews and the early writings in the Quran while Muhammad resided still in Mecca even told of the Jewish right to reside in their ancestral home inbetween the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. The verses which target both Christian and Jews were written into the later verses of the Quran which were written while Muhammad lived in Medina and commanded a great army. The modern spite against Israel comes from two disparate drives which are best treated separately. Starting with the Muslim source of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism we have to look at the Quran for the answers. The problem comes from the simple concept that Muhammad was explained by the Quran to have been given the final and only true path supplanting both the Jewish and the Christian teachings which were made obsolete as they were imperfect and had drifted from the true word from Allah. Thus Muhammad had been given the Quran so that the world of Allah would supplant both Judaism and Christianity and provide the true faith for humankind going forward from that point on into the future for all time. Further, the Quran explained that Islam would be spread by its adherents to the far corners of the world and everybody would bow to Allah. Thus, the Quran told that Islam would take root throughout the world and the followers of Islam would defeat all enemies and any lands that were ever conquered by Islam would forever belong to Islam. The Medina Quran also had some explicitly violent verses against the Jewish people after the Jews of Mecca and especially Medina refused to convert or to believe that Muhammad was a prophet. After the defeat of the Jewish tribe in the battle of Khaybar it was taken as the sign that such would be every battle between the Muslim forces and the Jews wherever they would meet. Thus, the Jews returning to their ancestral lands and then defeating the armies of Islam are an anathema to Islam and thus must be defeated if Islam is to be proven a valid belief and that the Muslims are still the favored of Allah. Additionally, the Quran also claims that the Muslim Messiah will not come before the Muslims take on the Jewish People wherever they reside in the world.

 

Christianity has a similar problem with the Jews returning to their ancestral home of Israel. Christianity also was defined to serve as the religion which supplanted Judaism, though they did not claim to be the final and only version to replace Judaism which allowed for Islam to supplant Christianity, or at least claim such. After the Roman Empire dispersed the Jews to the farthest ends of their empire in an attempt to eradicate what the Romans saw as a troublesome people, after a number of revolts, some with surprising levels of success but still which simply invited ever larger dispatch of legions to squash any revolt. Once the Roman Empire adopted Christianity as its formal religion and solidified the acceptable writings that were to be included in the New Testament Christianity became the ruling force in Europe. The fighting between the monarchs and the forces of the Christian Church, which eventually would become the Roman Catholic Church, may have led to some large differences between some Monarchs and even some preachers who in turn would challenge Rome. These challenges eventually led to the Protestant Reformation where Rome’s singular authority was challenged and replaced by several new forms of Christianity which each had its own cannons and claims to the righteousness of their cause. The Anglican Church, aka the Church of Britain, was one group formed by the British monarch King Henry the Eighth who found he had the need to be permitted a divorce, after all one cannot behead every wife, especially when one is the relative of the King of Spain. The one item all the factions were able to agree upon was that the Jews were the cursed of G0d who had forgone his covenant with them and had established a new covenant with the Christians. This simply meant that the Jews lived at the behest and allowance of their bettors, the Christians as they, the Christians, were now the favored by G0d, not the accursed Jews. This simply meant that no matter what else might transpire, the Jews were cursed and thus were too impure to ever reestablish their kingdom in Israel. This meant that the Christians immediately took to persuade the leadership of the world that they had made a grievous error when at the San Remo Conference the Western powers plus Japan agreed to setting aside lands under a mandate managed by the British for the establishment of the Jewish State once sufficient Jews were inhabiting the lands of the British Mandate. Within two years of the San Remo Conference the British proposed to grant all of the lands east of the Jordan River of the Mandate area to the Arab Palestinians and placed them under the rule of the Hashemite royalty to whom the British had given promises during World War I. That reassigned seventy-eight percent of the lands leaving merely twenty-two percent of the lands west of the Jordan River for the Jewish State. The Zionists accepted as they saw themselves as powerless to prevent such a deal. The massive problem came when leading up to and throughout World War II, a time when the Jews of Europe desperately needed a place for their escape, were prevented from entering the Mandate lands set aside for a Jewish State due to the British limitation of immigration for Jews alone setting the limit at a small amount each year. The documentation required resulted in so few Jews making it into the Mandate lands, as it was near to impossible unless one took it upon themselves to enter the lands through other means, as the British had slammed the door shut. The entire hope and all the rules and efforts by the British meant one and only one result, there would never be sufficient Jews permitted to enter the Mandate lands requiring the allowance for there to be formed a Jewish state. Even when after the revelations of the camps and the extent of their toll on Europe’s Jewish Heart, the British still voted against the formation of Israel when the vote was placed before the General Assembly but still the limited resolution passed suggesting yet another Arab state be formed along with a Jewish state. The Arabs in the Arab League refused the offer which left all the lands east of the Jordan River to be made into the Jewish state, that was until the Muslim armies of several nations and militias were to assault Israel with genocidal intents. Israel survived and that leads us back to why the Christians have such a difficult time accepting the idea of a Jewish State established where the ancestral homelands existed. With the Jews returning to their ancestral lands, then the covenant which lain out and predicted their return had to also remained established and the Jews were now realizing the reinstatement of that covenant and were to now relearn and perform that which when as a people just coming out of Egypt and all the miracles of the plagues and the splitting of the Red Sea and their answer when told they were to receive the rules and responsibilities it would take to be a good Jew worthy of the covenant they had replied almost in unison, “We will obey and we will hear.” Imagine how ready they were to accept G0d’s teachings that they were willing to promise their obedience before they had heard even the first law. The fact the Jews have returned covers the initial promise that such was to occur, but not that leap but merely one step of retrieving the dry bones and to begin to connect the muscles and eventually the religious will be empower these skeletons be made real. The literal transformation within Israel will be required to endure numerous more stages before those dry bones of the Biblical analogy are to be completely renewed and have not only physical form but to have spiritual forms and have returned to being all that being Jewish implies, which is largely to be a light unto the nations of the world and give them hope by the example set in Israel which includes the great discoveries and inventions, something which is already occurring. The numbers of items in many people’s lives which are the result of discoveries made in Israel are remarkable and extensive for such a tiny nation which is about the size of New Jersey. Your cell phone’s technology, instant messaging software, security software, and too numerous medical discoveries to give them the ample recognition they deserve are all products of Israeli R&D. Still, there is one thing the world can be sure of about Israel for as long as she exists she will share her discoveries and always try to play a positive role as a nation. This is evidenced by her ready response teams which are dispatched to anywhere on the globe where tragedy strikes and they are permitted entry. Israel was among the few nations to send teams to assist in New Orleans after the disastrous effects of hurricane Katrina and also in the aftermath of “superstorm” Sandy as most believe the United States does not require the assistance of others while Israel believes that one can never have too much assistance after a disaster. The other promise Israel provides is they set up clinics and medical facilities and completely outfit them with all the modern medical systems one might envision they needing and provide people to run these for the duration of the disaster and beyond. Israel also trains native people, physicians, nurses and technical specialists on how to use and perform procedures the clinic is capable of providing. It is often two years before the Israelis finally leave the clinic with everything left with the people trained gifting the nation an additional facility to provide services. This is something Israel performs quietly without fanfare beyond maybe a local newspaper or television newscast covering a ribbon cutting announcing the full turnover of the clinic to the local people. The most recent examples of these types of gifting of structures and training were in Haiti after their devastating earthquake, the Philippines after their typhoon and Japan after the disastrous combination of almost all of nature’s fury suffering a massive earthquake just offshore and the resultant tsunami where Israel left them a health and urgent care clinic even though the Japanese did not require training to use the facility, having a place, a clinic, to provide for the people was near priceless. So, as it appears much of the world, the United Nations, NGOs with near unlimited funding continue to pressure and attempt to besmirch Israel, please also remember and point out those things Israel provides despite those working to destroy her. There is one item which is curiously missing from all the boycott Israeli products which are the advances in medicine, agriculture, electronics, software and the myriad of other benefits, their major aim is produce such as oranges and wines, something that removes some competition in the market allowing their importers and farmers another advantage. They know exactly how far to push and still receive the benefits while still making an unprincipled stand against Israel, the sole nation of the Jews. Funny that these hatreds are aimed at preventing the Jews from having self-determination and national empowerment, just Israel and her Jews must never be permitted their own destiny. And for a last piece of information, the Israeli Arab populations are granted full rights as citizens and vote in Israeli elections and the combined Arab List was the third highest vote in the last election. The Arab Palestinian have not been allowed to vote by their autonomous body as Mahmoud Abbas fears losing his positions of power thus he has cancelled all elections since approximately 2005, so if people desire to really allow the Arab Palestinians to have a vote, talk to Abbas and pressure him, not Israel which has granted them full autonomy and self-rule and their own leadership is frightened of the people and thus denies them their rights, not Israel.
