You know another sacrifice is demanded when Israel must prove that the Jews want a peace agreement by sacrificing for the cause when former President Carter comes visiting and meets with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority separately while refusing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister presumably because Netanyahu does not desire to make peace or else he would be willing to sacrifice for peace. As is the usual ritual before demanding that Israel make sacrifices for peace, there have been no demands for Mahmoud Abbas or Hamas in Gaza to make even the slightest sacrifice for peace. We are constantly reminded that Mahmoud Abbas is in too weak a position to make any sacrifices for peace and that this too is Israel’s fault. It is up to Israel to make sacrifices for peace and also meet some, not necessarily all at once, but to meet some and eventually every wish list demand made by Abbas so as to strengthen his position so he will be able to make peace. This begs the question of why we have to do anything to strengthen Mahmoud Abbas so he can make peace and why are we dealing with somebody who is unable to make peace without being constantly propped up by our sacrifices. Perhaps the Palestinians should hold those elections which have been on hold basically since 2006 and allow the Arabs to choose a leader who will be capable of making peace.

 

Of course the reason that the Arabs have had no election and nobody anywhere seems to care that they refuse to hold new elections as they know that Abbas would be out of power immediately after the votes were counted unless massive fraud were to take place. The reason the Arabs are never required to even make a list of exactly what it would take to have peace and an end to the threatened hostilities towards Israel by the Arab terror leaders is it is known that they would be unable of making up a list which would permit for any existence of Israel. If Hamas were to draw up such a resolution it would also include a world without Jews. Abbas would merely want Israel replaced by an Arab state. As far as the Arabs making a sacrifice for peace, Abbas has said that were he to make even the slightest concession to Israel that he would be thrown from office. Does not this point to the problem which stands in the way of peace, that Abbas is a maximalist who will only accept the death of Israel as the only peace result. You want proof, simply have Abbas draw up exactly what compromise he would be willing to accept and which items he would be willing to forgo for a real and permanent peace and it will become apparent that there is no room for compromise in the Arab position. There never has been the slightest room for compromise and never will be any room for compromise. Abbas does not desire peace; he desires complete and total victory. Abbas is still fighting the war and believes he will win as his allies in the West are so foolish and are backing his position without ever inquiring what that position might be.

 

The reason behind there never having been a demand for the Arab leadership to draw up any listing of their demands for peace is because there is no need; the Arabs make their demands readily obvious to even the most casual observer if only they would open their ears, eyes, and most of all, minds. They go so far as to brazenly chant their demands on college campuses when they hold their hate Israel and the Jews rallies where Netanyahu is burned in effigy and the chants include some real gems. Perhaps a list of my top couple of their chants which can be heard on many college campuses during their anti-Israel week rallies reveals the underlying hatreds such as “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free;” and “Death to Israel, Death to America;” and any number of references to the Holocaust with this little gem creeping its way up the favorites list on campuses everywhere, “Jews to the Gas.” The anti-Israel, anti-Zionist leaders and the masses of useful idiots who are following their lead have finally gotten to the point where they are so comfortable that they no longer are required to hide their true roots in anti-Semitism, yes, you heard that correctly, they have dropped all pretense and are now chanting straight and unadulterated anti-Semitic tropes. But of course you knew their roots all along as it is also the roots behind the European hatred, their libelous and vicious spites and hatreds of Israel. There is more vitriol backing the rage seen expressed in a single anti-Israel rally demanding an end to the Israeli occupation of their own legally recognized and treaty backed Israeli lands than in all the rallies against the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the Turkish occupation of northern Cyprus or virtually any other demonstrations against any other grievance one could name. And why is this? Simple, because it has the force of the thousands of years of Jew hatred fueling it. This is why the demands are always made of Israel to sacrifice just as the Jews have always been put upon to sacrifice, the Jewish nation is now the largest of all things Jewish. Further, it just sticks in the craw of every anti-Semite that there exists a place where Jews defend themselves and do so quite successfully. The real driving force of the so-called ‘Peace Process’ is to bit by bit tear apart the Jewish state and force the Jews back into their position as beggars always subject to the whims of those who hold power over them. Israel is the Jew amongst the nations and is treated as if it were a single Jews who has had the audacity to say ‘No!’ to its assumed masters.

 

That is what is choking the world on its hate, the words ‘Never Again!’ are now a real force with the will of the Jewish People which after a near two-thousand-year banishment in the wilderness have finally started making their way home and in that home having an ability to protect the Jews from all assailants. There is a wellspring of Zionist and Jewish power opening in the Middle East right where it was written of and predicted by Torah, the Bible, Talmudic texts and virtually every Jew’s heart and the realization of the Jews once again becoming an equal amongst the nations exists and awaits them nestled at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. The Jewish state has been made to reappear exactly as it was stated throughout the Bible, the Old Testament where predictions stated that Israel, the Jewish State, would return in a day brought forth into the world of nations. The Jewish State would simply appear in a day never to be vanquished again and the Israelis believe this promise will be kept if only by the will of the eternal people, as the Jews were referred to by Mark Twain. And the Israelis actually have a few simple demands we wish to have recognized, but even if not, we will defend them just the same. One is we will not return to the Diaspora, another is we will keep that which is ours between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and most important of all, Jerusalem is our spiritual heart and eternal capital city, all of Jerusalem undivided and blessedly ours. Governments may make moves to destroy the parts that the Jews claim, but Israel will not be the sacrificial lamb on the altar of peace and in the end we will have our peace on our small piece of land, and the world will be content with that at long last.

What would be your reaction if I now explained that this is about Israeli settlers placing wanted dead or alive posters of Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders in the Palestinian Authority around their areas inciting for these people to be targeted for assassination. You would immediately condemn these acts as depraved and illegal to be roundly condemned by every sane and rational society and that the people responsible to be arrested and tried for being accessories instigating violence and for violating the human rights and a litany of other offenses. What would be your reaction if instead of posting such tacky posters it was reported that they had placed an exhibit as part of an exhibit on Judea and Samaria a picture of Marwan Hasib Ibrahim Barghouti sitting in a prison cell with rifle site bullseye on his head and another in the middle of his chest. Again you would be rightfully enraged at such a grievous act of inhumanity and demand the people responsible to be arrested. If any of these were to be true I would not only be joining you in your calls for people to be arrested for such vapid displays of inhumanity and criminal instigation expressed as some warped and weird form of art but actually merely expressing a hate-filled inhumane message which should lead to arrests of the people responsible for the entire exhibit and the authors or artists responsible for this and such display to await trial on charges of hate crimes and assaults on the human rights of another human being, I would be trumpeting the call for trials for acts violating the human rights of Marwan Barghouti. Fortunately such exhibits or posters are not the case and would very likely never be the case and should such distasteful exhibits and behaviors ever be exhibited by the settlers or any other Israeli, they would be arrested by the Israeli police and put on trial for their heinous deeds and the offending pieces removed from public display.

 

 

Yehuda Glick assassination exhibit at new exhibition on "Jerusalem" at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) made up of anti-Israel incitement, expressed through pictures and other displays.

Yehuda Glick assassination exhibit at new exhibition on “Jerusalem” at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) made up of anti-Israel incitement, expressed through pictures and other displays.

 

 

But such acts have been placed on display including the pictured above piece which is an actual depiction of Yehuda Glick in an assassination display at new exhibition on “Jerusalem” at the An-Najah University in Shechem (Nablus) consisting of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist incitement exhibits expressed through pictures and other displays. This exhibition includes the assassination display and comes a mere five months after Yehuda Glick was shot at point-blank range receiving four bullets into his torso leading to his extended treatment in the hospital where he received numerous surgeries to repair the damage and save his life. This disgusting call for further targeting of Yehuda Glick for assassination comes only weeks after Yehuda Glick was finally released from hospitalization and having regained normal body function which was in itself a true and real miracle, Baruch HaShem. The shooter, we should say assassin except for his failure, Baruch HaShem, was sent by Islamic Jihad who desired Yehuda Glick murdered because of his actions to permit Jews their right to pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and currently under the supervision of the Jordanian Waqf which forbids all prayer other than Muslim. This ban also is applied to Christians and other religions and not just Jews though their application and enforcement is strongest against Jews. One might believe that the Arabs Muslims who make up the Jordanian supervision are afraid that Jewish prayers coming from the Temple Mount which was the site of the first two Temples would have special treatment and be heard by G0d receiving immediate fulfillment and since such prayers might invoke the desire for the rebuilding of the Temple that such might produce a completed Temple falling out of the sky and replacing Islamic buildings. If only such would occur showing the might of G0d and His love for the Jewish People and through the performance of such a great and unmistakable miracle, have it understood that this miracle was for all Jews throughout the world calling upon them to return to the lands G0d gave us after he took us from the house of bondage in Egypt. Such a miracle would make belief that the Covenant with the Jewish People still exists and is as real and miraculous today as it has ever been and that this miraculous act of great love by G0d would make His continued performance of the greatest magnitude showing love for the Jewish People and preparing Israel for the coming. It was for protesting for the Jews right to pray upon the Temple Mount for which Yehuda Glick has been targeted for assassination and anyone who is able to murder Yehuda will be celebrated as having committed some great and noble act and there will be dancing in the streets in Nablus and throughout the Palestinian Arab areas of Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) accompanied by music and the handing out of sweet cakes and candies. Such are the kind of acts which are celebrated amongst the Arabs. These societal laudable moments revolve around murders of Israelis, especially Jews.

 

Imagine if as depicted at the beginning of this article that such exhibits were placed on display in some small but well-known museum; say the hall of Middle Eastern Studies of Tel Aviv University which they use to sponsor displays pertaining to historic and modern-day exhibits included pictures of well-known Arab Muslims from Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad, even terrorists who had the blood of numerous Israelis on their hands, with targets on their chests and heads calling for their assassination. The media throughout the world and the heads of states of European and other Western nations, the Arab League, the United Nations, Russia, China, and probably all the nations in Asia and Africa would all be denouncing Israel and placing complete trade embargoes on Israel until those responsible for such crimes against humanity and complete disregard for human lives as well as hate crimes against the Palestinian Arabs and their leaders who were so mercilessly targeted in the exhibits and the museum curator and other heads of departments and the President and other officers of Tel Aviv University had all been indicted, tried, found guilty and given decades if not centuries of time in prison for such a heinous display of tasteless and dehumanizing displays. Yet with similar such displays being sponsored and offered for public viewing by An-Najah University in Shechem has yet to raise so much as a ripple of effect across the world with a complete absence of protest from the usually sensitive Europeans, the ever-aware and responsive President of the United States, the presumed nerve-center for the world the United Nations or any leader, public figure, mainstream media figure, academic, human rights advocate or other normally so sensitive people, institutions, religious leader or nongovernmental organization has stepped up to condemn or even merely comment about this display of incitement to violence including the singling of one person for directed violence intending to depict a call for the assassination of an Israeli citizen and political human rights activist.

 

The propensity for the world to simply accept any hate-filled message, display, language, or even political act calling for violence and murder of Jews, not just Israelis but all Jews as is part of the Hamas charter, the Islamic Jihad charter and the PLO charter, the same PLO which changed its name but not its ends desired transforming their name to Palestinian Authority which absolved them of their previous sins and cleansed them of their terrorist roots, and to simply stand aside from such hate-filled vitriol and displays such as this An-Najah University presentation is simply astonishing in the most disgusting manner. You might ask for what do the world leaders and human rights defenders and activists wait for, and we will tell you. They wait for any Israeli reaction which they will then become incensed demanding the head of the Israeli or Jewish response calling for the removal of such offensive material especially the calls for Yehuda Glick to be targeted especially. Such calls for the termination of this display, if it were to be made by any Israeli or Jewish leader the world official conscience would respond with righteous indignation at the effrontery of an attempt to censor a rightful and deeply moving display of artistic and emotive presentations expressing the longing and love for Jerusalem which the Israelis and world Jewry are denying the Palestinians their rights to visit and pray at the Temple Mount (Palestinians refer to the Temple Mount as Haram al-Sharif الحرم القدسي الشريف‎) and who are denied a decent life or even peace which the Palestinians long for but are constantly denied such by the Jews. Never mind that the Palestinians and any Muslim is granted full rights to pray, visit, picnic, play soccer or any other activity and may utilize any of the gates to enter the Temple Mount while non-Muslims are restricted to a single gate, are searched for any offensive items such as religious books or symbols which are not Islamic and if Jewish kept for special treatment which includes open hostilities, denials of the right to pray, denial of any action which is detected and inferred to be religious such as moving one’s lips without speaking, speaking, looking skyward, kneeling, standing still, clasping one’s hands possibly holding one’s breath or breathing as well as being set upon and attacked for which the Jews who are being assaulted and are the obvious victims are removed from the Temple Mount, not the offending Muslims and Palestinians.

 

With such reinforcement of their rioting being sufficient reason to close the Temple Mount to Jewish visitation and assaulting any Jews who do ascend to the holiest place in all of the world for Jews, the Jewish police will remove the Jews as the Jordanian Waqf had defined rioting Muslims as being rooted to having been instigated by any Jewish presence on their holy land which the Jews are to be deprived despite its sacred importance to Jews. Eventually the assaults and other acts of intolerance by the Islamic world will cause a reactive eruption which will bring everything to a critical boiling point and the results of such are impossible to predict. Should there ever be an assault whereby rockets rain down unabated and not intercepted causing a number of the tallest buildings to burn or even be destroyed toppling them into heaps of ruinous twisted steel and broken glass infused with hundreds or even thousands of victims corpses beneath the rubble, then the reaction will be beyond imagination but it will bring the end to any claims by the so-called and mythical Palestinian people, nation or rights and claims to any lands between the river and the sea. After such an unbearable loss, which would most likely be the eventual result of a peace treaty in which Israel would surrender and almost all of Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem, all the way to the Green Line, with minor swaps of land by some formula; the cry for relief from such attacks merging with a promise of a permanent end would result in a war in which only one side would prevail. This inevitability would be far from the first incitement as that would be the publically displayed destruction put on Facebook and other social media of Kever Yosef (Joseph’s Tomb), Kever Rachel (Rachel’s Tomb) and numerous other Jewish Holy Sites including numerous Synagogues throughout East Jerusalem which have been rebuilt since the Six Day War. Another effrontery would be the refusal by the Palestinians to honor their agreement for Jews to be permitted to enter their areas to visit Holy Sites even the Western Wall, the Kotel. The assault with such a rocket barrage that it would prove beyond the abilities of Iron Dome Batteries to intercept every rocket and missile and too many would strike Tel Aviv and surrounding areas destroying many vital sites and buildings as well as an unacceptable number of slain civilians. The world would scream for Israel to hold their fire and to show restraint but even Tzipi Livni or Yitzhak Hertzog would be pressured to respond, though meekly and without any real change in the status quo, but such attacks would soon bring a heavy hand across the Palestinian lands wiping them clean and forcing those within to flee likely returning to their families’ original home nation never even considering a return to Israel. Such would bring finality to the peace process as it would produce an actual winner and that is the only solution which can be definitive as truth be told, either Israel is destroyed or the Arabs denied their beachheads in Judea, Samaria and Gaza as this is the real choice the Arab world and the Palestinians have defined as the only end. Actually the Arab world depicts the end of Israel as the only acceptable end, it is just they do not wish to provide their own forces and take casualties which fighting the IDF would produce, thus they invented the Palestinians to fight the war for them using guerrilla warfare and other means of asymmetrical warfare to wear Israel down to the point they simply surrender. “Never Again” means never again will Jews not have their nation and never again will the Jews be vulnerable to another genocidal maniac and their desire to rid the world of its Jews as has been tried and failed over the past four or five millennia, and it will not happen now, “Never Again!”

Abbas Promise That New Government Will Honor Past Agreements is Useless

AFP reported, citing the Palestinian Authority-based WAFA quoting Mahmoud Abbas as having said, “The next government will remain committed to the obligations and agreements signed by the Palestine Liberation Organization.” This was a reference to the obligations and agreements resultant from the 1993 Oslo Accords signed between Israel and the PLO which he was implying that the inclusion of Hamas into the PLO would not change the status-quo. My reaction to this bald face lie was a slow rolling of my eyes while groaning out a painful exclaim of, “Right!” in my head. My reaction was confirmed when it was reported that Abbas’ comments drew an angry reaction from Hamas, whose spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri was quoted as having said they “violate” the agreements between Abbas and Mashaal. All I need say is that the more things change, the more they remain the same.

 

This song and dance is very familiar to those who have watched the death spiral which has plagued every previous attempt between Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah organization and the Gaza based Hamas and related other terror groups usually featuring Islamic Jihad when they attempt to cobble together a mutual agreement to reunite the groups which had a messy divorce known as the Battle for Gaza in June of 2007 and known as the Wakseh among Palestinians, which means collapse, humiliation, and ruin. What usually follow are days or a couple of weeks of recriminations and finger-pointing leading to the eventual collapse of any signed agreement. What I believe are the real reasons behind this repetitive occurrence is the simple fact that should Fatah and Hamas recombine as either the PLO or as the Palestinian Authority, then many countries, most notably the United States and some of the Europeans or even the European Union, would cut off their aid monies as they have rules against giving funds to any terrorist organizations and all of them list Hamas and Islamic Jihad among those terrorist entities. Since the Palestinian Authority, PLO and Fatah are all completely dependent upon foreign donations to run their corruption plagued excuse for governance, they cannot risk allowing Hamas and the other groups back within the fold. By making these style statements despite their agreements with Hamas against these positions, Fatah, the Palestinian Authority and, in particular, Mahmoud Abbas are able to back out of these agreements without losing face and thus retain foreign funds. Like so many things in this world, it is all about the money.

 

What always is left out of these discussions is the little truth that there really is no difference between the actual positions of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah or the Palestinian Authority when it comes to what they believe vis-à-vis Israel. Both sides are working for the same end, the complete and total destruction of the State of Israel as a Jewish State. All of their Charters still have language in them which call for the end of Israel and the Jewish presence in the Middle East. The major difference is that the PLO, Palestinian Authority and Fatah have signed agreements which gave promises to alter their charters to align with the two-state solution and the right of the Jews to exist and live within their own state in the Middle East. All of these groups at one time or another have met and in front of Western observers voted to make said changes to their charters and to hold the necessary meetings to rewrite these parts of their charters and ratify them afterwards. The only problem has been in the follow through, or should I say the complete and intentional lack of follow through. No committees have been assigned let alone assembled and no changes have ever been offered. The votes were all nice little shows put on for the benefit of the Western observers so they would have something to show as progress so as to continue to fund these terror institutions which are inimical to peace.

 

So, once again we are facing the same old story. Hamas and Fatah kiss and make-up. They agree in brotherly fashion that they are both working for the total destruction of Israel and the submission or end of the Jews in Israel. They sign treaties and possibly even shoot holes of celebration in the ceiling, or maybe not, I cannot vouch for the gunplay. Then Fatah, or at least Mahmoud Abbas, wakes up the next morning suffering from an imminent pull of funding by the West hangover. Abbas then makes statements to appease his money supply to keep his kleptocracy fully funded. Hamas immediately gets all wound up and angrily demands that Abbas rescind his statements and stick to their agreement or else. Usually these agreements are made and signed by the political arm of Hamas and the weaponized terror arm of Hamas are the ones who blow a gasket. The differences between these two factions are easily determined. The political arm are those not in Gaza and currently seeking a new home, as their base in Syria has gotten a tad uncomfortable, while the terror arm is found exclusively in Gaza. Needless to say, the two rarely interact and, in truth, there is no difference between them, just the political arm is willing to claim falsehoods for acceptance and the terror arm is a little less refined. Viva la difference! So, now we sit back and watch the carefully choreographed kabuki theater Palestinian style and patiently await yet another collapse of a reunification of the PLO and Palestinian leadership and along with it, absolutely any chance for those elections that are years behind schedule to once again become unnecessary. Abbas remains President, Fayyad keeps his job as Prime Minister, Hamas keeps Gaza, and the waste of funds continues to pour into the coffers of the Palestinian Authority where it will enrich the lives of some elite and particular Palestinians.
