France’s Misconception and a Look at Palestinian Refugees

 

There has been the conference in Paris which claimed that it would arrive at the perfect solution that would restart the ‘Peace Process’ and lead to a final resolution based on fairness and recognition of both people’s desires and claims and settle all disputes over property based on the 1967 Lines, a term for the 1949 Armistice Lines, with the shared capital of Jerusalem which could become an international zone, another term for briefly protected and kept by United Nations or the European Union until the first terrorist attack kills some of their forces and then it would be surrendered to whoever could get there first. This was such a lovely idea and the fact that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was explicitly informed that his presence was not required or desired and that he was basically persona non grata might make one just a tad suspicious. On the other hand there was an open slot for Mahmoud Abbas who surprisingly decided he preferred not to attend as such a conference had the possibility of recognizing the Jewish State and Abbas refuses to admit that the Jewish People have a right to a state or even the right to live anywhere in his Palestine which extends from the River to the Sea and all of it is what he demands for free. The French had invited numerous Foreign Ministers and a collection of around a couple of dozen met for the conference in Paris, who doesn’t want to spend a week all expenses paid in Paris? At the end of the week they issued their groundbreaking decision, they would try and meet again before the end of the year as they understand how whatever they plan to do will require that President Obama be in office and as the Americans are not able to reelect this great man whose stature garnered him a Nobel Peace Prize and he has been seeking a reason ever since. But why the great panic in Paris which drives the French and their desire to be the ones seen as the great friends of the Palestinian cause?

 

Well, some believe they might be driven as a response to a few minor disturbances such as the events in Toulouse, Paris, Hypercacher, Charlie Hebdo, the Batkalan Pub, Stade de France Stadium and three restaurants. In case you are still confused think crazies with guns shooting people and threatening further violence and screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ between firing entire clips through their fully automatic unlicensed firearms. Yep, they are pushing this in a response to the terror attacks which have been ramping up and happening more frequently. This also represents the growing immigrant population from mostly the Middle East and North Africa. The theory is that by forcing Israel to grant a Palestinian State and the formation of two states for two people side by side in an area about the size of New Jersey they will codify the terrorists leading the Frenchies to be left alone. There is a small problem to this theory, the French never bothered to check with the terrorists, especially those from the Islamic State which appears to be the newest source for terror, and they did not fully check with Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian population to see if their theory had any validity or possibility of resolving their problem. What they would have found might have shocked them.

 

The first thing the French would have learned is that the Islamic State and most other terrorists today could not care less about the Palestinians and especially Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority and the PLO. The Islamic State and the Salafists from where the main body of terror originates are Islamists and strongly religious and follow strict Sharia while the Palestinian Authority is a nationalist and secular organization which is only mildly concerned with Islam and thus hated by the Islamic State and the Salafists. The going driving forces in the Muslim world currently are Islamist religious forces which strive to establish a world Caliphate under Sharia and would just as soon replace the Palestinian Authority and would be more likely to murder Mahmoud Abbas. These groups would fit far more comfortably with Hamas and Islamic Jihad with Islamic Jihad being the preferred as Hamas is allied with the Muslim Brotherhood and off/on with Iran. So, the French idea that they could pacify and ameliorate the Islamic terrorist entities was simply wrongheaded and virtually counter-productive. What France is actually broadcasting is that they are weak and pliable and will offer up compliance, even if wrong-headed attempts, and are ready and willing to roll-over and play submissive in response to terror attacks. The French are signaling that they are incapable of fighting and will not act aggressively no matter how violent the threat they face. They have basically lit up a flashing neon sign claiming their target status with it saying, “Terror attacks will be treated with submissive behavior and coddling of any Islamist demands even if we are so ignorant that we will sometimes, possibly often, support the wrong cause, we are trying, trust us.”

 

What the French have not observed are the real rulers of the people in the Palestinian Arab areas. Their last election, and it will apparently remain their last election, the winning candidates were all Hamas representatives who took over 60% of the vote and even higher in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and that Mahmoud Abbas assumed the office of President after the death of Yasser Arafat and won a questionable election with his four year term ended in 2009 and immediately before the election which he was obviously going to lose to Hamas whose candidate was not even able to campaign as Abbas refused to allow anyone from Hamas in the Palestinian Authority controlled areas after they lost Gaza to Hamas in a coup in June 2007. So the election was cancelled and all subsequent elections cancelled means that there is no legal governance and Abbas is an assumed dictator who has taken all power to himself denying the people their vote and representatives in government. So, the French were attempting to mollify Mahmoud Abbas in the hope that the Islamists, who would just as soon kill him as speak with him, would attack elsewhere. One has to wonder who the brains behind such wrongheaded thinking are. On the other hand, who really cares? What would be more interesting is what the latest direction the Palestinian planners have decided to take their exploits.

 

The latest intentions are not decisively different still aiming for the same goal of replacing Israel and taking over everything from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and eradicating the Jewish population and then the Christian and then any other non-Muslim populations. Of course they do not use that language when speaking English, that would be counterproductive. In English they are all about fairness, democracy and egalitarian acceptance of all people, races and religions. They do talk about genocidal intentions and ethnic cleansing as well as accusations of an Apartheid government and other such crimes against humanity which are presumably being waged by the Israelis. They claim that the Jew settlers are stealing lands and changing realities on the ground and moving into areas which are forbidden because the lands are reserved for Arabs and Muslims only. They also speak of equality for all Palestinians no matter their current residence whether they are living in the Palestinian areas or the refugee camps in the Palestinian areas or in the diaspora or anywhere else in the world. They comment how the Palestinians in the diaspora refuse to live outside of small compounds where they retain their identity. Then there are their comments that they demand full and equal election where all are permitted to vote on the future of the land no matter their current residence. But there are some minor areas of disinformation in the Palestinian presentations; actually all of it is disinformation of one sort or another. So, what is the truth, the reality?

 

The first problem is their accusations made against the Israelis. There has been no Apartheid governments since the one imposed by the Jordanians after they invaded and conquered Judea and Samaria, renamed it West Bank and ejected or murdered every Jew stealing their properties and giving them to Arabs granting them deeds for the properties and these are the deeds they claim Israel is dispossessing when the properties were returned to the Jewish families who had owned the land before the Jordanian invasion in 1948. The same goes for the residences in the Jewish Section of Jerusalem, a name the area has had since before the Crusades and ever since the Muslim invasion stole most of the city for themselves in the seventh century. They stole Christian lands which had been owned for over five hundred years by these Christians and Jewish homes which had belonged to their Jewish owners in many cased for fifteen hundred years since King David conquered Jerusalem in the tenth or eleventh century BCE. The lands Jordan took and Egypt took were cleansed of all Jews and the vast majority of Christians and theirs was an Apartheid governance. The war in 1948 was not a Jewish invasion stealing the lands as the morning of May 15, 1948 before the first shot was fired the Jewish State of Israel’s borders were the Jordan River, the Mediterranean Sea, the Sinai/Negev, the Golan Heights and the Lebanon/Israel Blue Line. The lands which were taken by force were Judea and Samaria to Jordan along with the Golan Heights to Syria and the Gaza to Egypt. The war had armies from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen all attacking the newly formed and recognized by the United Nations State of Israel. The Naqba, their catastrophe was that they were, with these forces and massive number and arms advantage, unable of defeating and destroying the Jewish Zionist nation of Israel.

 

Their claim that the refugees remain in their communities refusing to integrate into the nations in which they are held is not because they do not wish to integrate but rather they are contained within the refugee camps under guard and denied entry except for limited numbers to do jobs nobody in their camp location desire to perform. They are held prisoner by their fellow Arabs because the few times they have been permitted incorporation into the population they abused their freedoms and attempted to overthrow governments succeeding in one after a long and sustained effort through subversions and threat. When permitted freedom and rights in Jordan the forces of the PLO soon drove to overthrow the monarchy as they had lost taking the government in an election. The King of Jordan loosed his military and drove them out when they then fled to Lebanon and began a civil war in Lebanon. This brought Syria into Lebanon and in defense of the Christians in southern Lebanon who pleaded for Israeli protection which Israel provided. For the story of survival in these contentious situation of war, read Bridget Gabriel’s autobiography of her life during this period titled Because They Hate. This is a story of life and death and a transitional trip of awakening that changed the author’s life. This was her look back and the realizations she experienced, including crawling with her mother on their stomachs in order to reach a small stream to fetch water as, if they stuck their heads up, the PLO forces would have shot them as they resided in the Christian section of what was left of their town. And that was how her entire teenage life was not a time of self-awakening but one of perpetual terror. The book is a riveting read. Eventually the Israelis drove out the PLO and were closing in on Beirut and capturing Yasser Arafat but were warned not to enter Beirut by the Americans who threatened repercussions if the Israelis touched Arafat who the Americans plucked off a rooftop in Beirut along with his top staff including Mahmoud Abbas and moved them to a safe house in Tunis, Tunisia.

 

They accuse the Israelis ethnic cleansing and genocidal murdering of the Palestinian population. This is despite the fact that the Palestinian population had gone from approximately 650,000 to 800,000 in 1948 to over 5,000,000 today. If the Israelis are committing genocide or ethnic cleansing they must be the worst perpetrators of such policies. Their most recent claim along these lines had to do with the knife intifada, also called the third intifada and the car intifada. These names cover the two main weapons, knives and cars with knives used to stab Israelis at bus stops, the light rail stations or just out on the street and the cars were used to run-over Israelis or ram them into crowds at bus and light rail stops or other places where Israelis might congregate. These attacks were almost without exception suicidal martyrdom attacks where the terrorist would continue stabbing. If attacking with a vehicle, they would continue targeting with the vehicle until the car was crashed or otherwise disabled. Then they would continue attacking on foot with knives or even hatchets and axes until stopped by force. This led to many of the perpetrators being shot with many killed to prevent further attacks. The Palestinians refer to these defensive actions as street assassinations of innocent Palestinians who have committed no crime other than using the streets and minding their own business. To the Palestinians it is a natural thing for them to walk down the street, or run as was often the case, stabbing every person they pass indiscriminately and qualifies as walking innocently down the street. Should any of these stabbers be shot, then it is an assassinations, a genocidal attack on an innocent. 0Killing Israelis is considered a natural state of action and considered innocent and perfectly natural thing for them to do and any act to prevent or stop such an assault is an injustice as defending Israelis is a criminal act in their society; it is a form of denying them their natural rights. If the media would ever take the time to translate any of their leaders speaking in Arabic or translate their school books and children’s shows and report on them this would surprise nobody. Many such television shows and other news stories of all varieties from print to radio to television are provided with translations on the web through sites like MEMRI and Palestinian Media Watch and Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America.

 

The talk of desiring a free and open democracy with equal rights without restriction and acceptance of all religions and inclusivity in all things in a single unified state where Arab and Israeli can live in freedom and all the Palestinians can join in ruling the lands together with the Jews is a crock pot of simmering falsehoods. The catch here is their demand that all the Palestinians wherever they currently resided and especially from their “voluntary” refugee camps, the ones where the foreign governments refuse to permit them outside the camps and ring these camps with concertina wire and with armed guards tell the story better than anything we could claim. This is another way of calling for the ‘right of return’ where another five to eight million refugees, nobody knows how many and with the ‘Syria refugees’ flooding into Europe and the news now reporting that the refugees outnumber the numbers of refugees from Syria as it is now known that these refugees include refugees and immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Turkey, and even Jordan, Yemen, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia and further nations as far as Bangladesh. If Israel were opened up to ‘Palestinian refugees’ the untold millions which would flood into Israel would be criminal, literally, just as Europe is being flooded even from across the Mediterranean Sea from Northern Africa and even the Horn of Africa. Does anybody believe Israel would be any different? And once this single state was established with who knows how many Arab refugees including Islamic State infiltrators and then there was an election with close to eight to ten million Arabs mostly refugees and Islamist infiltrators and five million to six million Jews and other than Muslim and a government was elected, can anybody guess what the result would be? How long before the Jews were being hunted down and shot on sight? The election would be the equivalent of five hundred ducks and one thousand wolves voting on what’s for dinner. Of course Israel is being called names by these Palestinian one state supporters claiming that the Jews are racists and refuse to permit the Palestinians the right to vote for their own government even. The person preventing any election is Mahmoud Abbas as he is completely aware that Hamas would win or possibly Islamic State, either way he would be dead as soon as they took over as would many of the PLO and Palestinian Authority elite. This is why they have such a large security force including a special core simply to protect them and keep order. These were independent of Israel and they could hold some version of an election whenever Abbas decides it is safe, don’t hold your breath.

Further, these camps are not what one thinks when you hear refugee camps as these camps are cement construction apartment buildings and other than being fenced off they appear exactly the same as the buildings outside the camps(see above). Another item which boggles logic is why are there Palestinian refugee camps in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority areas in Judea and Samaria? Are these Palestinians not permitted to be free even in their own controlled and ruled areas? Why does Mahmoud Abbas force Palestinians he claims should be freed from the camps to remain as refugees in camps walking distance from his office? Somehow this makes no sense. Why is there a refugee camp for Palestinians inside Jenin and bordering Gaza City? Anyone have an answer? There is no answer beyond the fact that having the maximum numbers in refugee camps fuels their propaganda and they do not have jobs for them and they get millions of dollars and euros through UNRWA which they and Hamas use for weapons and feeding their Swiss bank accounts. Explain how the five top men in Hamas live in palaces in Qatar and are worth close to or over one billion dollars with the leader, Khaled Mashaal, “Estimates around the world are that Mashaal is currently worth $2.6 billion.” Add that Abbas is building himself a pleasure palace in Ramallah (see below) which will also house troops to defend the house and its owner. Who said that terrorism doesn’t pay?

 

Mamoud Abbas planned masion estimated cosr of thirteen million dollars but will end up costing far more after required kickbacks

 

The end result of anything from the Palestinians always includes the same end result, they get from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and their land must be cleansed of all Jews. They claim that every refugee gets to return and is given the lands they claim to have lost. The children are given assigned names of cities inside Israel where they claim they were born. This starts in preschool and each child and their matched city is registered in their school paperwork and that assigned city goes with them for the rest of their lives and it has the effect of convincing them they should be living in some beautiful house inside Israel and when the great day comes they can go claim their new home once the Jews are all gone. And they wonder why the Israelis do not trust them. Imagine that.

There has been a news story running around loose that ISIS is causing ripples of violence and is intending to replace Hamas as the governing body in Gaza. Should this actually come to pass, what difference it would make has not been explained in the stories I have seen and I am pretty sure I know why, the truth would be too revealing. The other reason this story has had the emphasis given it is so that the world will see such an event as something horrific and of causing a sea of change probably for the worse. This is true only if your name happens to be Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal of Hamas or Ramadan Shalah and Abd Al Aziz Awda of Islamic Jihad and potentially some of the other top echelon commanders such as Hamas Military Commander Muhammad Deif. The terrorist members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad have been complimented by the lead members of ISIS in Gaza as far back as last summer’s Operation Protective Edge though you would be hard pressed to find many, if any, news stories mentioning such, especially outside of Israel. Even within the Israeli media the subject was barely ever breached for reasons that escape me for their logic. The most news that mentioned Hamas and ISIS in the same breath was those quoting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and a few other Israeli politicians and top security officers in the IDF and Shin Bet who were making the point publically that there was really no discernible difference between Hamas and ISIS despite what the world media cared to report. The actual discernible difference should both Hamas and Islamic Jihad along with the remaining Fatah and Palestinian Authority individuals all be supplanted by ISIS would be that Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal of Hamas as well as Ramadan Shalah and Abd Al Aziz Awda of Islamic Jihad and perhaps some of the secondary commanders who were seen as not sufficiently bold in their efforts against Israel as that would be the level of the majority of the change. I am fairly sure that the topmost leaders of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, al-Qaeda of Gaza and any other top commanders who have been getting excessively wealthy usurping funds off the top for personal gain, better known as greed, then you have something to fear as such activities are not pure and will deserve punishment by the leaders of ISIS. The top people with the most profit from their positions such as the billionaires of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal who are both worth many billions of dollars, will simply be spending a lot more time at their mansions in Qatar and as time passes less and less time anywhere near Gaza, Mashal has not visited Gaza except for that occasional photo-op just to validate his credentials and to raise morale amongst the troops. The main loss to these leaders is that the gravy train will stop running and they will just have to suffer a serious financial setback and need to spend very carefully such that they do not spend through their billions of dollars too quickly.

 

In Gaza the difference will be minimal until ISIS has attained what they consider a critical mass such that they have the troops and equipment in place and everything ready for their assault on Israel. They will tell their forces that the day when the Zionist entity will pay dearly and no longer be in possession of the stolen Muslim lands and their fellow Muslims who are pure in their practice and intentions will finally celebrate their victory over the much hated enemies of Allah. Needless to point out but if you happen to be an Arab, Muslim or not, resident in Israel and ISIS were to even temporarily for some few hours gain control of your area of residence then you would be best served to be elsewhere during that period as any Israel Arab, especially the Muslims, will be treated according to Quranic texts and their most violent and strictest of interpretations. This means that those who are followers of Islam will have to explain to deaf ears why they had not risen up and destroyed Israel from the inside and were instead living so peaceably with the Jews. After said testimony, which will be interpreted to be more of a confession of guilt, these Muslims will be declared apostate and appropriately murdered, most likely burned alive as has been the lot for the Shia captured by ISIS. The best off will be the Arab Christians who will be permitted to live after paying the Jiyza, the tax especially levied against Christians and other non-Muslims under which their Muslim leadership will protect them until the next payment comes due, but be warned that sooner rather than later you will either not have the funds to pay the Jiyza or will be given the final choice between adopting Islam or death, and conversion will not necessarily save you as your forced conversion may be determined not to have been spiritually uplifting and you would then meet the fate of an apostate, burned alive.

 

After Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest of the terrorist forces in Gaza would necessarily come under the control of ISIS the sea change would barely be more noticeable than a ripple added to the surf pounding the coast; simply put it would produce negligible change. The changes would mostly be cosmetic as while the production of rockets would be increased with the rockets being stored for intense use in support of the eventual ISIS assault to eliminate Israel and liberate the stolen lands which they as the next Caliphate should rule over all the lands that were ever under Islamic rule and that includes all of Israel. The reality would likely be very different as ISIS has a much larger and more important foe than Israel which has been under attack for some time using Gaza as a safe haven and supply depot. The other dirty little secret that the news media have not reported about is that ISIS presence in Gaza is mostly to operate as their liaison with Hamas who manage the supplies and provisions so as to have ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula provided with the appropriate weaponry and ammunition for their attacks on Egyptian forces as their intent is to be able to take possession of sufficient amounts, all or the vast majority, of the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula and have successfully pushed all Egyptian forces from the field of battle and be capable of announcing their great victory and spread into the Sinai Peninsula and declared it as a part of the Islamic State being founded by ISIS. Such an accomplishment would necessarily demand an Egyptian counter-offensive to retake control over the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula using solely Egyptian forces so as not to need Israeli assistance of any note as such would arm ISIS with a propaganda battering-ram with which to unseat President Sisi and the Egyptian government and replace such rule over all of Egypt claiming it for the Islamic State’s Caliphate, just another jewel in their turban and another loss for the Arab Muslims desiring peace under which they can continue their lives.

 

Once ISIS has managed to wrest the Sinai Peninsula from Egyptian control, then ISIS would turn their attention on capturing Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt and then annex the remainder of the country setting to purify the Egyptian population by testing the people on their levels of devotion and knowledge of the Quran and Muslim Law, the Sharia. Should ISIS have the capability of defeating the Egyptian military, not only would such a victory be impressive adding greatly to their reputation, it would serve as another reason proving they are in fact and deed the Caliphate they have declared themselves to be and thus would attract even larger numbers of disenfranchised youth from Western nations as well as across the Muslim world. Such a victory would make any plans to defeat ISIS close to impossible, especially utilizing solely the Iranian forces, even were there to be provided airstrikes as required in support of ground operations to defeat ISIS or seemingly to stop their incremental advances creeping across the landscape. Such a gain would also connect ISIS forces in Libya to the rest of ISIS as well as placing ISIS that much closer to uniting with Boko Haram in western Africa and based in Nigeria. Adding the weapons systems and fighter aircraft to the ISIS arsenals would also be augmented by providing safe zones in which ISIS could train their own pilots providing them with a force multiplier, air support and bombing targets in order to soften them for the ensuing ground assault, something carried out currently by suicide bombers. Such gains made by ISIS would pose a direct threat to the entirety of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and place increased fears in Europe, particularly the southern nations bordering the Mediterranean Sea. One might suspect that such gains and the accompanying threats would provide sufficient threats that the United States would act in a more forceful manner beyond limited airstrikes, but it is our conjecture that until, at the earliest, mid-January 2017 the world can pretty much rule out any increase in their commitment than to provide minimal air support of a few sorties on an active day. One reason that President Obama would not escalate the situation with ISIS would be due to any expansion westwards across northern Africa poses no imminent threat to Iran. In such a case, western movement would take the focus off Iran allowing them to better prepare for their inevitable conflict with ISIS for as long as ISIS exists, the Shia Muslims will not be safe anymore than Jews, Christians and others who do not bow to Allah.

 

The current efforts by ISIS are bringing more forces to bear in the Sinai Peninsula and it appears they will simply be cementing their gains in Iraq for the time being while continuing their efforts in Syria while striking in the Sinai in an effort to overwhelm the Egyptian forces currently holding the area. This is a natural fit for ISIS to open its next expansion as they already have a resupply base where they are able to keep supplies safely and a place they can hide away from the warfront retreating and enjoying relative peace in which to lick their wounds and plan for their next strike. The ISIS strategy is to strike hard with as many forces across as many fronts of the area of operations causing confusion and high casualty counts on their enemy attempting to overrun their checkpoints and other positions. This is the first time ISIS is fighting a national armed forces as until now they were fighting the remnants of a the Syrian Army and militias such as the Kurdish Peshmerga forces and the Sunni and Shia militias in Iraq and some of Iranian IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) forces which have continued to hold Baghdad and stymying further advances. This has forced ISIS to open a new front from which to make headway and continue to project their strong horse imagery and their invincible forces. Their raid this week assaulted multiple targets striking checkpoints and guard positions across the Sinai Peninsula. These strikes met with varying levels of defense but by the end of the day the Egyptian army had regrouped and pushed ISIS from all the positions they had taken earlier in the day. This was accomplished using assets wisely. The coordinated fight was conducted using forces including the Egyptian Air Force, armored units and those ground forces already deployed in the Sinai Peninsula. ISIS actually brought supplies out of Gaza prompting one Egyptian military leader to breach the subject of Gaza claiming that Egypt held the option of their forces going into Gaza and striking hard at any opposition units that may be; including Hamas, Islamic Jihad or other terror forces they find in Gaza. Initial results have shown that ISIS can push the Egyptian forces from their positions but they have thus far been unable to retain the grounds gained and are forced back into hiding. This may prove to be a war of attrition which would favor ISIS as they are gaining strength as the Western Powers, particularly the United States, appear reticent as they refuse to commit ground troops and actually fight against ISIS. Their anxiousness might be due to their having a plan for one great rout of the United States forces reminiscent of the Tet Offensive in Viet Nam. What that taught the leaders who have studied the History of the United States, particularly their innovative abilities to adapt to their situation and implement strategic options changing their tactics and adopting new and innovative tactics to fit that situation but that as long as the enemy can claim a victory and have produced large numbers of casualties that the media will reside with the isolationist reporting the offensive as have created a new and perilous situation where the forces fighting the United States are described as valiant while the United States military are cast as murderous and treacherous and any other derogatory terms and cast as losing the war or at best not winning. Once the American public has been bombarded with such news reports they demand the troops be brought home and from that point forward the United States has lost and their enemies need only keep up a modicum of effort as a constant reminder and to continue the nightly body count at the opening of every newscast. This was what defeated the United States in Viet Nan, in Afghanistan, and in Iraq once already and the one strength the terror forces have is they have nowhere to run to so they will fight to the last man, woman and child. That sort of determination takes an amount of steady and constant levels of ruthlessness in order to not only defeat them in every battle but to break their spirit and prove to them beyond any doubt that their cause is useless and, in this case, Allah does not favor them being deserving of victory and has handed victory to their sworn enemies. The only question is once the coming war begins, will the American people have the stamina and stomach for completing the fight or will they simply first surrender to the coming propaganda and then inevitably face the final surrender, surrendering to Allah and becoming Muslim and all that does entail.

Abbas has once again slow-walked the Arab Palestinian Authority to the great chasm and threatened to throw the unity governance agreement Fatah made with Hamas unifying the Hamas run Gaza Strip with the Fatah run, taking the name of the Palestinian Authority, Judea and Samaria over Abbas being unable to press his vastly lacking political will, influence or any form of security or governance which remained dependent and controlled by Hamas and Islamic Jihad despite claims that the Hamas government had resigned. This information came from Amin Maqbul, the Secretary General Fatah’s Revolutionary Council, who reported to AFP that in the meeting of the Council, Mahmoud Abbas had threatened to dissolve, according to Amin Maqbul, “The government will resign in the next 24 hours because this one is weak and there is no chance that Hamas will allow it to work in Gaza.” Maqbul additionally stated, “After the government resigns, we will start consultations to form a new government.”

 

An official from the Palestinian Authority reported to the media that the overt action was going to be taken as a result of the Palestinian Authority’s, and particularly Chairman Abbas, being unable and likely to continue to face an “inability to act in Gaza.” This seemingly drastic action did not come out of the sky like a thunderbolt from the heavens; but rather had been discussed at length and according to this sources statement, “There have been discussions inside the government about resigning if they are unable to do anything for Gaza.” There had been numerous fundamental facets utterly failing such as the inability to impose their will such that there was too little governing authority to even set-up for elections which were promised to be held within the first six months and was a stipulation in the agreement which was enacted and signed by all the responsible parties about a year ago. This was made highly evident when the Arab Palestinian Authority reacting to complaints that many of the workers from the former government and who had continued to work to provide services to the people of Gaza but has not been officially added to the Palestinian Authority payroll and thus had not been paid since the signing of the agreement, Mahmoud Abbas sent a small committee to Gaza for a week to gather the names and make a register from which to start payments and take down and record other statistics which were required in order to remit to their salaries met with such hostility and violence that they never once left their hotel nor hold interviews nor even catch a single name rushing back to Ramallah exquisitely dejected and haplessly downcast from their experience.

 

Even if the reconciliation between Fatah and their opposition, Hamas, completely fails, there will still be some good to come from the efforts, a knowledge that there is definitely more than one head on this snake and with the addition to ISIS vying for power we can easily make the case for three heads if not four counting Islamic Jihad, or five as I am sure that al-Qaeda which operates in Gaza would be more than put out if they were neglected, or if we additionally include vying for control we would need 13 heads on the asp in order to include the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP ), Palestine Democratic Union (PDU), Palestinian National Initiative (PNI), Palestinian Arab Front (PAF), Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF), Palestine Liberation Front (PLF), and lastly the ever so alliterated Palestinian People’s Party (PPP). There may be even more because every so often a coalition, if that is what we can call such, of terror groups plan and cooperate in a kidnapping but they do not present their demands immediately, then, without any warning, one group we have never heard of announces they did the kidnapping and then another from the mists there is another group and then the known groups jump in and before you know it the Europeans and Israeli leftist start their pressuring the government to capitulate so that the kidnapped victim is returned without harm.

 

That brings us to what might just be the root of the problem with the peace process, neither side is anywhere near unified on what the result should look like. Adding to those woes are the expectations of the United Nations, the European Union and the United States along with the Arab League and I’m sure Reverend Tutu, just to pick a name out of the air, has an few suggestions, none of which are helpful or consider Israel’s safety. The easiest way to prove this point would be to start with the presumed main two Palestinian leaderships, Hamas and Fatah. Fatah is secular though they have been slowly sliding to the Islamist end of the spectrum while Hamas is and always has been Islamist though they tend to be confused as to whether they will serve Iran or the Sunnis and have attempted to play the two off each other in an absurd and morbid bidding game in which Israel is the largest loser, probably the motivation behind the whole affair. Then there are their stated goals where Fatah simply wants to displace Israel and make it free of Jews who do not know how to be Dhimmis which is pretty much all the Zionists and many middle of the spectrum Jews who are accustomed to Western society which comes with built in human rights, freedoms and few constraints beyond respect for others as you would desire to have your desires and actions respected while Islam demands that even its adherents completely surrender and have little to no freedom of action. Hamas not only wishes to destroy Israel but once that is completed and every Israeli Jew has been slaughtered move on to murdering every Jew across the globe and then while this is being accomplished conquering the entire world and converting or killing every person who does not observe Islam and are not exactly the kind of Muslim they define.

 

What is unsettling is that these pursuits are exactly the same as those of ISIS yet ISIS claims they are going to take over the Palestinian fight against Israel and has flat out stated they desire to replace Hamas first and go through the ranks of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and whomever else they find and pass judgment on which meet their standards for being Muslim and thus permitted to live for now. Then ISIS has pledged to do the same with Fatah and the rest of the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria and finally, after all that exercise, they plan on not even taking a break before attacking Israel.

 

Even without ISIS the Palestinian case is ridiculous. They are already two states without a solution as they cannot even find sufficient grounds on which to agree and work together. From every last attempt at making a joined effort for the sake to forging ahead and gaining international recognition and thus moving their designs and demands forward we have witnessed a clash of monumental proportions and a compete inability to agree on even the simplest of terms. It is almost as if when one would say up, the other would demand down or even right, left, forwards or backwards but just anything but up. And should the other agree to that their opposite would simply change to a different definition as it seems required for them to act and be contrary in all matters. The sole thing they can agree upon is that both sides feel strongly that only through their leadership will any good results be produced and thus they must never allow the other even the slightest victory without them tuning around and toppling that victory. They would likely be unable to meet on the beaches of Gaza and work together long enough to build a decent sand castle and the world wants them to run a nation.

 

So, which side is Israel supposed to form two states for two peoples? As things stand it would be more like three nations for two people but one of them is so fractured they cannot even sit in the same room, let alone run a nation together. Wait, here’s an idea, as Gaza is already completely made Judenrein, how about they prove they can run just Gaza for three whole years without any outside charities, making a budget, actually running a functional society and without launching or permitting the launching of a single projectile at Israel. The world can assist by finding some way for the two to cooperate and work towards a common goal. It will not be easy and will probably take a team effort from mostly the Leftist Europeans, ones who are so sure that the Palestinians are the noblest rag-tag groups on planet Earth, and then see if they have the infinite patience and intestinal fortitude to make this all happen without them actually taking on the responsibilities themselves as the aim is to produce a group of Arabs out of the self-proclaimed Palestinians and have everyone at least appear to work together without any serious violence. The one thing that I can be assured of is that any such effort will fail. The people, especially the youths, have been fed so much hatred and to love violence and the kill for the sake of the kill, not even desiring a trophy to hang on the wall as relating the story, with added embellishment with every telling making it unrecognizable within a week of any telling. This is the society they have built in both Hamasistan and Fatahistan and there will be no such idea of peace with Israel as I am pretty sure most could not even bring themselves to say the word Israel as their minds would immediately translate it to Zionist colonial occupiers who have delusions of ethnic cleansing and are responsible for the coming genocide of the Palestinian people any minute now so they must be destroyed and all their kind removed; well, you get the idea, just asking them to say Israel would produce an ever escalating rant filled with references to violence, either theirs or perceived as Israeli. Then when anything would go wrong, other than attacks on Israel where both would try and grab the credit, but any governance failure such as the stealing of monies at unconceivable rates and amassing great wealth, then there would be the innocent why are you looking at me act.

 

Still, when the vast majority of the building supplies provided for the rebuilding of Gazan housing for the people whose homes were destroyed as they had been used as shields for rockets or other military uses and using the building materials to expand the underground terror tunnels and bunkers as well as rebuilding the tunnels destroyed by Israel before they could be utilized for their planned mass assault on Israeli towns and Kibbutzim closest to Gaza for the purpose of taking a half dozen or so hostages and murdering as many others as they would be able of achieving, that would be solved in a game of finger-pointing with flying denials and accusations. That is the kind of governing under Hamas and/or Islamic Jihad. One trait both sides have in common is the stealing and corruption which only grows becoming greater and of unbelievable levels of graft and outright stealing of funds. Abbas, believe it or not, is the pauper in this department only having achieved an estimated few hundreds of millions of dollars while both Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal are both multi-billionaires. Whoever claimed that terror does not pay did not understand the methods of Yasser Arafat who may have been the greatest artist of mishandled funds ending up in Swiss and Cayman banks in numbered accounts as his worth at the time of his death was known to be so unbelievably and ridiculously high that Fatah, the PLO and every other person or entity which could claim a tie to the money went to numerous European courts in efforts to pry even a small percentage, which would still represent a king’s ransom, away from Suha Arafat without any success.

 

That is an additional reason that there will never be any compromise or even outright solution reached, the top ranks of the leadership are nothing more than petty tyrants whose grasp on power includes severe cases of kleptomania, a mental disorder which overrides all forms of compassions, common sense, rationality, and self-preservation gets tossed aside as this level of theft eventually angers the masses to the point that they grab these grubbing malcontent poseurs and the result is their being given the Il Duce or Nicolae Ceaușescu treatment, and trust me, what happened to those two tyrants may have been what they deserved, but how driven to madness and anger had they driven the people they were presumed to care for. The same virus has infected much of the Palestinian leadership and to some extent this can be seen in their actions as they say things which are patently ridiculous, complete void of reality or truth and so completely lacking in logic that often even their most devoted leftist supporters are caught simply throwing up their hands and asking, ‘What was he thinking?’ That was the problem; these thieves are so intolerably lost from reality it is surprising they can even be coherent much of the time. Anyone remember Arafat towards the end of his life where many times one would have trouble even discerning the works, and if that were possible their relation to each other in what was passed as a sentence made no sense. Israel cannot make peace with these Palestinian leaders as they do not desire to rule over a country and have to provide for their people, they wish to lord over their domains taking whatever they desire and allowing the crumbs and drippings to flow to their unfortunate citizens.

 

Hamas and Islamic Jihad are so despised by the average Gazan with a family as their disregard of and threat to these people’s children is beyond any human’s imagination as they have witnessed an Islamic Jihad or Hamas terrorist grab the closest child, from their mother’s arms if need be, and hold the child to their chest as they cross a firefight to position themselves in a better vantage point with more secure defenses and a better angle to shoot and kill IDF soldiers with the assured knowledge that by taking the child he need not worry, the Israelis are too weak and beloved of life to shoot him carrying the terrified child stolen from a horrified mother. Imagine the mother’s conflicted thoughts as she knows the Israelis will even stop shooting entirely allowing the child to be released as the terrorist reached his desired position and fearing that the terrorist is partially concealed and the Israelis may not see the child until it is too late. Imagine the terrorist considerations as he can no longer fight while holding the child so he might well try to convince the child to sit beside him to assure only the finest Israeli sniper would even consider taking the shot on him with a child next to him.

 

The problem is the world’s leftist Israel and Jew haters do not ever open their eyes and see the terrorist holding the child as if it was a magical shield, which against the IDF it is exactly that, and only envisions the freedom fighter in a league of one of the underground forces against the Nazis. These demons in human form are not the Polish, Czech, Romanian, or French underground fighters from World War II; they are far more aligned with the likes of Che Guevara. I bet if somebody started selling Yasser Arafat t-shirts and sweatshirts they would make millions just placing it on the internet as Yasser Arafat Tees, $25.00. If you do I would like a mere 5% fee for the idea and then if you expand into Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Hassan Yassin or other Palestinian faces of terror I would expect only a mere 3%, thank you. Making peace with leaders who have an unrestricted inflow of funding that they are able to steal over half the funding and still make salaries with only a scream or two every fourth month that they are cash-strapped and cannot pay the ‘government’ workers (or pay for more terrorists families stipends because they have a terror relative in prison where the stipend is determined by the number of Israeli civilians murdered) and the European government and European Union immediately pony-up sending billions or trillions of Euros yearly and it ever escalates. I have a radical idea, why don’t the European Union and all the European governments stop funding UNRWA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah and the Palestinian Authority directly or through deceptive back channels and simply not even bother with the Israeli and Palestinian area of the Middle East and we can get on with finally making peace as they will then have an incentive to actually form a workable society or face instant democracy of the masses. You would be surprised how quickly such a policy adopted would show fantastic results and then there might even develop that Palestinian State you claim to want so badly, honest; come on, try it.
