What is Understandable and What is Beyond Belief

 

When we read news about a new protest in France, a Synagogue having a firebomb thrown at it from a passing car in Malmo, that Germany is once again printing Mein Kampf with explanations (pertaining to its possible odious nature) as if such intellectual garb would change the readers desires, and that Mein Kampf immediately topped every chart in Europe is also accepted at face value. That the BDS and Israel Apartheid assassins of honor have deployed to campuses across the United States to besmirch Israel, Zionists and far too many Jews in general unless they swear allegiance to the poor, unfortunate and beleaguered Palestinian and their noble and righteous cause does not surprise us. I can forgive those Jews who refuse to admit their love for Israel out of fear of engendering confrontations, though I can tell them a good strong stating of, “Yes, I am a proud Zionist and I love Israel and plan on living in a nation that would even permit your demonstrations even in Jerusalem because they are a free nation but should you with all your love for the Palestinian were caught in Gaza and known to be an American, you would be held for ransom and if it took the State Department two days to acquiesce, then I would really hate to be in your shoes in that company,” as such as bold statement said loud and proud would so startle them that you could then walk right between them as they would open like grocery store doors. But it takes practice to speak in such a tone that it places fear in the hearts of Dobermans and German Shepherds, even a pack of them roaming as feral wildings.

 

 

Jews Against Israel Should Mind Their Own House As the Zionists Care Little About Their Religious Interpretations and Confusion as to Whether Reclaiming the Land Precedes the Mashiach or or the Mashiach Precedes the Reclaiming Land

The numerous establishment church synods divesting from all investment in Israel as that stands right in line with their replacement theology which they can deny they still believe the Jews were forsaken by Hashem and serve some fallen angel which does not even exist in Judaism as we understand that Hashem had to allow evil otherwise goodness would simply be what was as it is in heaven and we mere mortals would not have free will as there would be no need for will at all; we would all simply be as our only choices would be normal. The churches who either publically or silently hold to their replacement theology do have a very good reason for attempting to destroy Israel and make life for the Jews who live there because one of their own doctrines point to the fact that Jews used to be nationless because Hashem had exiled them for their sin of not being Christians, Catholics, Episcopalians, Methodist, Orthodox or any of the other Protestant or Christian variant and not recognizing Jesus of Nazareth as the first coming of the Messiah and for that crime the Romans dispersed 80% of the Jews to all the reaches of their empire. The fact that Jewish Prophets had told of this coming exiles and it was spelled out even before the exile in Egypt to Abraham that the people promised as his primary and permanent beneficiaries of their relations with Hashem through which the eventual Mashiach would be brought forth were to experience three exiles, the first would be Egypt followed a period later by the exile in Babylon and finally the longest and at times seeming insufferable exile which resulted from the Roman Dispersion, the exile which has begun the ingathering. This is partly why there is the growing evidence for Jews to realize that their future is either Israel or becoming the new lost tribe which may well be described as the lost tribe from assimilation rather than like that of the original lost tribes as these will be somewhat voluntary or through lack of exposure as parents were all but lost to assimilation.

 

The Churches who will insist in holding dearly to their replacement theology which inevitably gets to how the Jews forsaking their favor with Hashem ignoring the last exile predicted by Prophets to be unlike any previous but also fortunately the final exile. This exile had another even more ominous story which has come true in many ways, the prophesy of the dry bones whose message was difficult to fathom until the Holocaust and the returning to Eretz Yisroel. Still, the conditions also had to be a part in how many Jews were forced from their homes; many were family homes which had been in their families for centuries, even for over a century. The stories will all be fascinating in their own special and not always the most positive of ways but all will be miracles in what is a time of renewed miracles. There will be those which are uplifting and those which will have us cry, there will be some tragic, some magical, some still unready for telling, some so very telling and some nothing short of a whole new kind of miracles. The returning of the ten lost tribes of Israel had started and with it stories beyond belief and with amazements and changes which will add new colors, new practices, new viewpoints, new holidays and returning Jews who have things to share and who will be enthralled and amazed by the Judaism they may not have realized existed while some may only recently have realized and been identified as one of the lost tribes of Israel. The coming future for Israel and for Judaism will be full of interest and poignantly punctuated with emotional reunions with tears of joy and losses to assimilation which each will bring tears of mourning as every single solitary Jew lost from a tribe is the loss for all the tribes as their hole in our whole slowly becomes a tear told with the tears of relationships never started, families not having a Brit Milah, Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, or Wedding or generations of Mitzvahs and the generations and the loss to the body of Judaism is an unhealable wound which though unseen leaves and aching hearts in Heaven.

 

The previous all comes from the understandable part of the title. The problems cannot come from the Christians in the twenty-first century as they have given up on such things as pogroms, burning at the stake, thumbscrews, the rack and other equally distressing tortures and forms of murdering any heretic, or Jew as there was little difference. The main difference back when this was in style was dependent on who was applying the tortures and killing. Each Christian community if they were Catholic they would include Protestants and Muslims while the Protestants would include Catholics and Muslims and lastly the Muslims would add all Christians and as already established, all would target the Jews who having no land of their own could only be ready at the slightest sign of danger to relocate often within less than an hour. This may explain why Jews even through half of the Twentieth Century often had a few suitcases with religious items which would be taken out when necessary and returned as soon as feasible along with clothes, cookware, expensive and other precious, both monetary and sentimental, and a few days dried food and water in case a hasty departure became necessary. Those who had this predecessor to the bug-out bag lived when the pogrom started and the people approached the Jewish sector with torches and weaponry fled and lived to see another day and when feeling they had run sufficient distance and found a friendlier clime, then they would start by building their new home again in the Jewish sector, often called the Jewish Ghetto.

 

Losing Jewish children to assimilation which in those days meant conversion which meant living outside the Jewish ghetto and practicing Christianity or Islam in open where others watched and many also practiced their newfound religion in private and had made a complete conversion leaving Judaism as it was simply too dangerous and they did not feel attached more to their Judaism than to the area where they lived. These Jews who became the newly true converted Christians or Muslims were often some of the most devout so as to avoid any doubts and often their children were never told of their Jewish roots. Some of those lost Jews have looked up their parent’s, parent’s, parent’s parents, tracing both sides of their family tree, and in a fair number of cases their parents, both mother and father, were true Jews. Despite having converted to Christianity, or Islam, they continued to marry former Jews often meaning to keep the faith alive. These curious young adults heard of the forced conversions done sometimes centuries past and they felt some need to know. Some was curiosity and some it changed their whole lives. Those few whose interest was to determine who they were and for them it was a search for an identity they suspected as their grandparents had a Bible which was different kept hidden in a chest in their bedroom. When some were young they saw such a thing or picked up on some things which made them wonder like why did whenever the grandparent were with them did mother always light a pair of candles quietly in the kitchen when the children were with father, always father would take them for a walk and when they returned there were candles lighted and never a reason, it was just because or they brightened up the room or some logical answer that hid the reality, grandmother still kept the Sabbath. These often were the ones who brought copies of all the paperwork to a Rabbi and asked what they would need to do to become Jews and many were surprised when Rabbis told them they were born Jewish because of the lineage of their mother through her mother and so on back to the mother who converted under threat. The men were less than enthusiastic about the Brit Milah and the women had to be instructed and assisted by the Rabbi’s wife and other women with the purification. The largest groups of rediscovered Jews which we have heard or read about were in Poland. Many have applied to come to Israel and we pray their passage home is not too taxing.

 

As beyond belief as the rediscovered Jews from Poland and other places including in the Islamic and Christian lands, that too was not what we are having so much difficulty understanding. Oddly enough, the Jews who have no feelings to return home to Israel and like their lives wherever they reside we again have little problem believing as we met a fair number who just could not understand why we would want to move to Israel with all the terrorism and dangers. We attempted to present the facts that even with the terrorism, one is safer in Israel than being in the United States with the crime problems and we mentioned that just like where we lived you did not go certain places especially after dark, we failed to mention some of the places in Israel you do not go at all, day or night. We wish them well and may only the best in life be ahead for each and every one of them. Now on to the unfathomable. The unfathomable are the myriads of Jews residing in Israel as well as the others situated around the world who, for reasoning that escapes our ability to understand, simply feel compelled to destroy Israel as the Jewish State and desire to turn it over to swarms of Arab Muslim extremist terror mongers from which would come a bloodbath flooding the landscape with Jewish, Christian, Druze and even Muslim blood as they swarmed over the land like giant locust destroying every structure and field of grass and crops alike leaving nothing but a blood soaked ruination behind them that fateful day. The Jews who stand against Israel should mind their own house as the Zionists care little about their religious interpretations and confusion as to whether reclaiming the land precedes the Mashiach or the Mashiach precedes the reclaiming of the land. Just a little food for thought, before Hashem parted the Red Sea, did not Nahshon, a son of Amminadab, descendant in the fifth generation of Judah, and brother-in-law of Aaron, not need to show faith and walk into the sea until it washed over his head for Hashem would provide the miracle. Has not every miracle always been preceded by two things, prayers and an act of faith that Hashem will provide. Zionists are today’s Nahshon walking into the Red Sea until we are in over our heads and then will come our salvation, ours and yours. So may you stay safe until that day and along the way not feed the enemies who would see us both destroyed.

Those residing or instigating here in Israel would be as devoured by the carnage as would any of the most devout Zionist, religious Hassidic, Christian of all origins and even every secular humanistic post-Zionist defender of so-called Palestinian rights to their own homeland. What these anti-religious zealots, ever so much as dedicated to their secularist religion, have never bothered to investigate is exactly what it is the leadership, which unfortunately is the entire mind of the terrorist body of the beast, actually is willing to accept in order to stop making false accusations and extremist rhetoric and demands for simply more without their ever having to answer the all-important question, how much more. They will refuse to ever give a direct answer; instead, when responding to how much is enough they will simply reply in a voice that would stop butter from melting on their tongues, “Our fair share,” “Our natural homeland,” “Just what we have asked for all along,” and my favorite, “Our stolen lands back.” These vagaries all hide the truth which can be heard from their minions across college campuses throughout the Western world where slogans are discarded as meaningless and not representative of any reality, but this one says exactly the entire truth, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” Did you catch your answer, you useful idiots, to that all important question, “How much?” “From the River to the Sea.” Which means death for you and me. That should be the second line screamed over the top of Palestine must be free as the truth is their free Palestine is the second Shoah, the second six million plus slaughtered Jews along with another four or five million other Israelis including every last secular humanist Jew who touts the post-Zionist line that the lands we hold were stolen by conquering colonialists. Here is a radical thought for you, every piece of land outside of the patch where humanoids first came down from the trees losing that battle as the trees were safety and started learning to run or die, from that patch of grass where the first bipedal humanoid stepped down from that tree, every other inch of land has been conquered from some other animal or humanoid biped. There is your truth. I, for one, believe Israel is the land that will produce more miracles for the rest of mankind than all the nations throughout history and through future history yet told. The first miracle was the Israeli birth on May 15, 1948 when just as promised by our sages, Israel was born in one day, and Israel came to be at sunset and the L0rd looked down and saw it was good and for the first time in eons he slept well for one night because the very next day, in case you missed this in your history course, the barbarians were at it trying to tear asunder all that was declared and was realized if only in that one moment. The birth of Israel would have continued without any further bloodshed had all been left right there, but alas. Had the Arabs at any point accepted Israel in any of the ever smaller borders offered and gone on to build their lives instead of trying to take our lives, then all the bloodshed would have ended, period. So, how about we try and give this exclamation a try, “From the River to the Sea, no more bloodshed by you or me.”

Terror as Just a Daily Occurrence

 

Throughout most of the world people have no idea that Israelis are still suffering at least four or five active terror attacks each day and that does not include throwing boulder sized rocks and firebombs at passing vehicles hoping to put the huge rocks or the firebomb through the windshield or side window thus hitting the driver causing a crash and potentially fatalities. Many of these ambushed are even done from moving trucks going the opposite direction as the cars they target doubling the speed of their deadly projectiles and these ambushes can go on for hours before they are ended as they move and are planned to evade the IDF and police. Further, the Shin Bet has a more important task than Arab terror as Arab terror is a nuisance as there are bigger fish to fry, what are euphemistically called Jewish terrorism and is largely overstated but has occurred on occasions but nowhere near as prevalent as the Arab terror and more often it is more protest than threat to life. The Duma fire was an exception but has yet to be proven to be an act by Jews but the PA assures the Shin Bet that as there was Hebrew writing claiming it was a price-tag crime that no Arab could have possible written that in Hebrew, there is no way in the world such could be the case. Meanwhile the Shin Bet is rounding up the usual suspects and locking them away for deep interrogation until somebody breaks. Yet daily threats continue as the latest round-up claimed numerous right wing extremists, as always those on the right are extremists while the most egregious and violent leftist might be referred to as left-leaning but otherwise they are mainly left-center or normal as the writers of much of our daily read mainstream media are closer to leftist extremists than they are to centrist observers without any slant or leanings that might taint their reporting. Perhaps that is why we feel free to do the same except from the right and we try to be fair when reporting facts.

 

The world media might wish to get their news and actually report the daily assaults on Jews especially in and around Jerusalem and other places where Arabs and Jews are in close proximity. But if they wish not to report that their favorites are attempting daily to murder as many Jews as possible, then maybe they would do a feel-good story and arrange a tour of one of those miserable factories which some ‘evil’ Jew owns across the Green Line in Judea and Samaria and take a camera crew and do a live and unrehearsed feed to the morning news shows, maybe even on the View, and show Arab and Jews working together and both treating each other as equals and show what can be if the world could get off their kill the ‘evil’ Jewish State angle. There are many stories like this daily both within the Green Line and across the Green Line. They might want to explain that the entirety of the Green Line problem is also a manufactured attempt to destroy the Jewish State of Israel but then they would need to point out their active supporting role of ignoring terrorism against Jews and reporting immediately breaking into news casts to report the slimmest of rumored crimes by Jews such as defending themselves from terror attacks.

We have seen and heard news reports where a BBC, CNN, FOX or other news station reporting the unequal numbers of killed in the recent terror wave or reporting that in Israel many Arabs have received non-judicial sentencing as Jews are murdering, or the slightly less offensive killing, of Palestinians largely in the Jerusalem area where terror has often struck. What is a listener or viewer to believe is causing the terror with such reporting? They certainly are not going to believe that there is Arab on Jew violent terror attacks and the Jews and law enforcement is often forced to use deadly force as the perpetrator of the terrorism wants to continue to stab even responding armed police and IDF personnel. But in Israel the blame the victim especially if they are IDF or Israeli police or Jews defending themselves is nothing new as the news out of Israel to the rest of the world often takes the hands-up don’t shoot attitude casting the Arab as the victim who had absolutely no other choice but to attack Jews with large knives and hatchets. The Jews were asking to be assaulted as they exist in Jerusalem astoundingly enough. Could the reporting be any more slanted than the few we pointed out just the other day in our article Red Flags Facing Israel in Every Direction complete with screen shots and images of such reporting.

 

As we write this article there is more than likely an act of terror with intent to murder Jews being committed somewhere in Israel or the disputed areas. Also, do you in the media think you could ever cover that the ‘disputed areas’ were originally at the dawn of Israel’s existence all part of Israel as was Gaza and they were taken by the Arab forces attempting to eradicate the Jewish State on Day 1 and that the disputed West Bank was then called Judea and Samaria but was occupied, actual occupation, and the Jews forced from the areas of Judea and Samaria, by Jordan who conquered the area in an offensive war initiated by the Arabs and that in the six Day War Israel liberated, yes, liberated these lands and under all International Codes of Law the entirety of the ‘West Bank’ Judea and Samaria belong to Israel and the Arabs have no legitimate claim. Oh no, that cannot be reported as it might confuse our viewers in the Western World and give them the idea that the Jews are more the victims of erroneous reporting of the news and the disfiguring the reality beyond recognition. Why baffle your viewers and readers with actual facts when you can play demigods and cast the Jews into the fiery pit. People should, if they know of somebody who had visited Israel and not said much about their trip other than listing the interesting places they visited, ask them about how the Jews treat the Arabs and the majority of the Arabs interact with the Jews and what areas they felt completely safe visiting and where they were either too frightened or took a tour which brought its own security with them for their safety. Their answers might completely turn what you have been led to believe right over and on its head. Don’t be afraid as the truth may give one a jolt in the brain box, it otherwise results in a warm feeling of realization. We wish you to ask somebody you know what their visit to our little, very little, corner of the world because once you have gathered a few testimonies the things we write will become clearer and less extreme and possibly quite believable, as the truth often becomes once one has been freed from the confines of the misleaders, also known as the mainstream media.

It is truly sad that Arabs using large rocks as projectiles against vehicles with Israeli license plates, which could strike any Israelis be they Jew, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Bedouin, or tourist from anywhere in a rented vehicle because even if it sends the entire carload of a family, business people carpooling, or just about any other scenario, to a hospital or worse, a morgue; it is not news. There are also numerous firebombs thrown at cars with Israeli license plates and homes in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods and the occasional user of a firebomb who gets things entirely wrong as pictured above. The young man survived and this is known because if he had been seriously wounded or died the media would have been fed a story that the Jews threw a firebomb at this youth almost killing him or worse and the media would have spread that far and wide. The boulder throwing, car rammings, rioting, stabbings using everything from screwdrivers to knives to hatchets, mugging murders of young women even by taxi drivers from which they were being driven to a job interview and then there are the rockets from Hamas and the threats out of Lebanon where Hezballah has amassed thousands of rockets and missiles provided by Iran and snuck past Israel’s attempts to stop such shipments. The threats even have come from the Mediterranean of which one was avenged and it is starting to appear that Samir Kuntar was eliminated by Hezballah due to fears that he was about to return to his Druze roots and assist in the formation of a Druze autonomous zone which Bashir al-Assad cannot allow as the Druze are the last faithful holding Islamic State as bay.

 

Even with the events on the Temple Mount the blame is laid at the wrong door as the news reports blame the Jews for attempting to desecrate the al-Aqsa Mosque simply because Mahmoud Abbas has said so on numerous occasions and we all know for the media his words are truth and any evidence to the contrary be damned. This has been at the root of the rioting and is the exact same call for Jihad on demand used by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini back as early as 1920s as he called for the Muslims first in Hevron to rise up and protect al-Aqsa from the Jewish attempts to desecrate it with their demonic services and then a while later he repeated the same message to the Muslims of Jerusalem for another pogrom against the Jews. This was the rallying cry used during the second intifada to much glorious effect causing rioting, suicide bombings and other assaults murdering over a thousand Jews and spawning the separation barrier which in some locations necessitated concrete to prevent shooting from Arab neighborhoods into the houses and at children playing outside (which made many a Jewish child into a shut in and home schooled as allowing them to walk to school was far too risky) and there were court cases and many reroutings done to make the lives of those at the demarcation line for the fence easier. Much of the fence is just that, fence with cameras and sensors but in built up areas there was the need for something to stop high powered rifle bullets, thus concrete which has been shown across the world making it into an apartheid wall in the media when it was simply a defensive necessity so Israelis could go out in public and not be blown to pieces. The rioting on the Temple Mount is not about the al-Aqsa Mosque but about closing the Temple Mount to Jewish visitors and Christian visitors as well. The riots are a means of making the Temple Mount a Muslim only zone and it will never work even if Jews are going to need to enter the Temple Mount from another unapproved entrance, say the Lion’s Gate and the small number of Jews entering coming in at around five thousand, that would be a sight and if occurring during Muslim rioting we would bet that would end any riots and the Temple Mount would be Jewish and Christian and whomever else desired to come peaceably and enjoy the blessings of this holy place. Below there are a few pictures of the al-Aqsa Mosque and one picture which is not the al-Aqsa Mosque despite being shown all too often on the news and elsewhere depicting the Dome of the Rock as the al-Aqsa Mosque. The first is a montage of al-Aqsa from within as it is being utilized as a munitions depot with rocks and other essentials for rioting.

Will This Be the Last Surge of Islam?

 

There will be reactions from all sides on the slaughter in Paris, France this weekend. There will be calls for arming the populace or at least those who desire to carry weapons and undertake the responsibility with respect to the law and the society. There will be those going exactly the other direction demanding all firearms, especially automatic rifles as well as the scary looking so-called assault weapons and who will denounce those calling for arming everybody. Those two groups can go to some out-of-the-way corner and argue vehemently and vociferously for as long as they desire as long as they leave the sane people from suffering their diametrically opposed views of the world as neither one is the complete answer. Both those extremes are also what makes democracies, specifically democratic Republics, so preferred a manner of governance as the fact that there must be debate, something the prior mentioned will assure their side gets their two-cents worth in, and this causes deliberations and eventually some compromise is reached which has had all the sharp edges and deep crevices smoothed over and something that all can agree is adequate usually ensued, or that is how it is supposed to function. There will be a lot of debate in the Western World about what to do with the Islamic refugees, many of which are true refugees but apparently all too many are not so innocent, nor are truly refugees, dispersed within the hundreds of thousands swarming into Europe and beginning to arrive in New Orleans in the United States with ten thousand are due shortly with the initial groups already ashore.

The one thing we can be assured of is we will hear from more experts expounding disparate and contradictory ideas on how to best handle the situation and most will be so far afield that they will at best offer entertainment or at least amusement. We can always count on experts to provide the comic relief until the lawmakers start agreeing and trying to implement their suggested remedies. The truth is the world at large needs to address what is coming and whether we like it or not, something evil this way comes. The alarmists are once again on the right track and viewing the world as it is and not how we wish or experts tell us the world might be. The Paris attacks are far from the first assault in this coming conflict. Paris wasn’t even the first of this type of attack by terrorists as that assault came in Mumbai, India on November 26, 2008, where hundreds were slaughtered and the assault lasted three days before order was restored. The lone terrorist taken alive was Abu Jundal who was charged and tried for his alleged role in the terror assault.

These events are the recent escalation which was set in motion by the bombing of the World Trade Center Towers parking garage where a truck filled with explosives had been parked and detonated on February 26, 1993 leaving a sixty-foot cratered hole in the structure collapsing several floors directly adjacent to the bomb and six people were killed and more than a thousand people were injured. The structural supports for the World Trade Towers, though compromised, were not sufficiently damaged to cause either tower to collapse and contained the blast damage to the somewhat local area. The parking garage and immediate surroundings had taken more than five-hundred-million-dollars in damage. After the attack it became necessary to evacuate fifty-thousand people from the buildings where hundreds were suffering from smoke inhalation. This evacuation lasted the entire afternoon closing numerous offices on the larger effected areas including areas which were initially considered dangerous due to the structural damage and danger of further collapse.

Needless to add, the World Trade Center Towers after this failed attempt to destroy this world renowned image of the strength of the United States and its economic wealth as well as the fact that several government departments located their Now York headquarters within the World trade Center Complex making it an even more enticing target became an obsession to al-Qaeda and its leader, Osama ben-Laden who eventually planned an attack using four civilian aircraft to attack the two main towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and one flight we will never know their intended target because that plane, flight 93, was brought down by the passengers after they had learned of the other attacks and they stormed the cockpit to take back control of the aircraft which crashed into the ground as the terrorists chose death before dishonor and are likely proud of that choice wherever their souls may be rotting. Of course, most of the world believes the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center as the seminal moment the terror war began, but historians will trace the modern Islamic aggressions to the seventh century and the breakout from the Arabian Peninsula of the forces of Islam which eventually were stopped in Tours, France and twice at Vienna, Italy and now rule in one form or another the entirety of North Africa and the Middle East (MENA) and large populations of followers of Islam reaching to the southern islands of the Philippines and into Indonesia. (see map below)

Stepping ahead to the present and the attacks in Paris, please allow us to repeat our emotions and wishes from yesterday’s article where we added to the beginning the following, “Our Prayers and emotions reach out to the victims of terror everywhere in the world and especially at this time to Paris and all of France. May the people and their leaders restore order and care for those injured both physically and emotionally. Our caring thoughts and prayers for a recovery from the horrendous acts being perpetrated in the name of submitting the innocent through brutality; may the peace and goodness win out these days.” These attacks had at the time of our writing had taken approaching one-hundred-fifty innocents with untold injured and many dozens of people reported as missing by families and friends with the one constant, confusion and conflicting reports. As with the Charlie Hebdo murderers, the social media is filled with sympathy and posts of “Je suis Paris” and “Je suis France” which, though understanding and appropriate, the sympathy is such a contrast to the reactions to the shooting of a mother and father in front of their four children sitting in the back seat of the vehicle on an early morning in early October and just yesterday another family was struck by terrorists in a drive-by-shooting in which the father and elder son were murdered, a second teenage son was injured with multiple gunshots from a drive-by shooting and the four remaining children were deeply shocked just this past week. Israel has been under a continuous series of terrorist attacks under the direct demands of their governing body with Mahmoud Abbas directly organizing the violence giving it his blessings with his now infamous declarations in which Abbas begins his tirade demanding, we won’t allow Jews with their “filthy feet” to “defile our al-Aqsa Mosque” and “We bless every drop of blood spilled for Allah. We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood.” Abbas continued further on stating, “Every Martyr will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah…” Abbas went on to claim during this tirade meant to inspire additional deadly violence against Israelis aimed primarily at the Jews demanding, “The al-Aqsa (meaning the entirety of the grounds and structures upon the Temple Mount) is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours and they have no right (Jews in particular and Israelis in general) to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” Despite the numerous stabbings, vehicles used as ramrods into crowds of people waiting for busses or light rail, large rocks hurled at cars, slinging rocks shot at people and finally shootings have begun and who knows what the future holds as there is always the possibility for bombings, rockets from Hamas and Islamic Jihad and lastly there are the one-hundred to one-hundred-fifty thousand rockets and missiles stored throughout Lebanon with the worst having ranges reaching everywhere in Israel and the largest having many-hundreds of kilos sized warheads yet whenever such events strike in Israel, instead of seeing “אני ישראלי” (I am Israeli) we get warnings that we should exercise restraint and that reacting may escalate the situation. After every terror attack throughout the world outside Israel the call is for steps to be taken to protect from any future such assault. There is sympathy pouring from all corners of the globe. In Israel we are told to basically suck it up and take care not to further upset the murdering beasts across the street in all too many cases. This differentiation must change and the reasons are legendary because as we pointed out near the beginning of this article, something evil this way comes.

 

Islam in its history has already experienced two distinct periods of expansion. The initial expansion started in approximately 610 lasting through 750. The initial spread came under Mohammad spreading throughout the Arabian Peninsula followed by the break-out across Middle East and through Egypt, Tunisia and Libya under the Four Caliphs and finally Umayyads reaching across the rest of North Africa into Spain before being turned back at Tours, France by Charles the Hammer Martel. This defeat ended the western advances under Islam and from 750 through around 1300 Islam consolidated their unbelievable expansion and worked on educating their new territories converting the populations and the golden age of Islam experienced great knowledge and the important transcribing and keeping the Greek and Roman writings in math, philosophy, medicine and the carious sciences and literature. There was a transformation from the rule of the Umayyad to Abbasid dynasty. The Islamic Golden Age is traditionally said to have dated from the middle-7th century to the middle-13th century.

 

From the middle-14th came the second advance of what became the more familiar phase of Islamic advancement after the Abbasid dynasty had declined losing control of the furthest lands, something which historic logistical experts could have predicted as no empire can expand and continue to influence and control anything at a distance able to be reached by any mode available within a fairly brief period of days and not weeks. At this time there was the emergence of a small but well-organized and motivated tribe called the Ottoman Turks, or just the Ottomans, who were breaking out of northeastern areas of Turkey across the Islamic lands. The Ottomans not only took control of the existing Islamic lands but expanding them beyond the furthest points up the Nile and through southern Libya and further into Eastern Europe bordering southern Poland and Germany with some stubborn areas bypassed due to either treaty or simple heavy resistance making the conquest counterproductive. The Ottoman Empire, as the lands became known, lasted in a weakened state until they chose the wrong side of World War I standing with the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Germany. This is what led to the beginning of European nations ruling over the areas which were previously Ottoman Empire lands which means that the Europeans occupied the lands of MENA for far less than a century, with most less than fifty years, while Islam ruled them for as much as ten to twenty times as long, most for over a thousand years. This is a truth not often noted as it does not serve the occupying colonial guilt that is supposed to be laid upon the Europeans and associated peoples despite the realities of history.

 

The leaders of the Islamic nations do have some critical reasons which are valid to be irate with the Europeans beyond the obvious Sykes–Picot Agreement which made the boundaries of many modern states of the Middle East as well as the borders of much of Eastern Europe, the European portion is oft ignored while the Middle Eastern nations are often stressed as the result and reason for hate over the prolonged and intolerable European occupation. The further anger was based in the fact in the Quran which claims that no land ever under the rule of Islam may ever be allowed to be ruled by any other as such is an insult to Allah which must be repaired at any cost as immediately as possible. This is why Israel has faced a perpetual and unremitting string of terror attacks and wars with no reason allowed as all of Israel must be returned to the rule of Allah, meaning returned to the Rule of Muslims and never be permitted to continue under Israeli-Jewish rule. But there is a rumbling going on deep inside the Islamic world.

 

After the decline of the Ottoman Empire which outlasted its innate ability to defend its conquests as the military was outstripped by the developments and discoveries the Christian world experienced after the Protestant Reformation, Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, and the entry into the Information Age. Weaponry in Europe proved to be the deciding advantage against the Ottomans from east to west. The Ottoman Empire fell with as much violence and bloodshed with much of it coming from Muslims within their empire who had grown tired of Ottoman rule and desired a change thus allied with the British and the French in overthrowing the Ottoman rulers while the Jewish Brigades (also called the Palestine Brigades though nearly no Arabs served within the ranks which were almost exclusively Jews under British officers) were largely used in keeping order in Alexandria, Egypt but did see some fighting in northern Italian front lines towards the end of World War I. These units officially make up the 38th and 39th Battalions of the Royal Fusiliers of which the former was comprised largely by Zion Mule Corps and a large number of Russian Jews while the latter consisted of all Jews from the United States and Canada. The fact that some of the defeats of Ottoman forces could come at the hands of the Jews was not accepted well and pained the Muslims even more than losing to the European forces which were more modernly armed and whose support was excellent and often is what made the difference. This weakness which brought on such a rapid crushing of the Caliphate which had existed largely in lands won by the first breakout and struck at the heart of Islam.

 

This has led to rumblings and the formation of ever more radical (which means religious) Muslim organizations. The proof of this has been revealed over the few years as we had al-Qaeda, then the Taliban, Boko Haram in Nigeria and now the world is facing the Islamic State and soon a nuclear armed Iran. These Muslims are dedicating themselves to follow the teaching of the Medina Quran over the Mecca Quran thus they are neglecting the moderation of the early Quran in favor of the violence inherent in the latter Quranic verses. We covered the Quran a while ago and have received some positive feedback on our explanations of the two sides to the Quran and the reasoning and changes in Muhammad’s life. Ever since the Muslim Brotherhood blessed the terror groups starting with their joint effort with the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) followed by Hamas which became known as the radicalized terror organization. After a while the Muslim Brotherhood established another group modelled on the same basic principles as was Hamas as religious ties to Islam were found to run deeper and thus prove to be great motivation which far exceeded Arab tribalism. Then from al-Qaeda was spun the Taliban which is very much like Hamas and the finally we now have the Islamic State (ISIS) from which will theoretically be the force which can defeat any state necessary to place their influence over that nation starting with Syria and Iraq. It was theoretically an ISIS terror attack which exploded across the French capital of Paris. If this assault becomes something which occurs somewhere in the middle of any major city in the United States, as they have no stomach for any fight unless it hits home, or with an assault either in one nation or in a number of nations striking out in several cities, then perhaps the world will truly awaken. We are unaware as to what more damaging ISIS might prefer, the taking of people in one city of a single nation, the murder of a number of people cutting a swath across hitting numerous cities or finally striking numerous cities strewn across any number of Western Nations or even other sites such as Asia or MENA as even the monarchies are not safe from such assaults.

 

But all of this, the attack in Paris, the ongoing war against Israel for over sixty-seven years, the Mumbai attack, the Boston Marathon Attack, the World Trade Center Attack, the Bali Attack, the attacks in Kenya including one yesterday, the Fort Hood Terror Strike and the numerous others both grand and small having one common thread, the toppling the government or strangle the economy such that Islam in its most powerful means as people hear such sermons teaching hatred and violence often aimed at the great Satan, the United States, and likely otherwise Israel targets. Time will tell if the Islamic assaults are simply further terrorist killings or part of an organized escalation which will lead to a greater heat from the attacks as they spread their efforts ever further along with the initial seeds to try and impose a Caliphate over the Islamic nations and threaten the rest of the world.

 

Islam has been at war with the world since the fall of the Ottoman Empire which resulted from World War I and their desire to reassert unitary rule over their vast holdings; do not be fooled when something simple may soon follow. The first step towards global hegemony is the finishing of the taking of Iraq and Syria. Until that has been accomplished I would be able to reassess their ability to sell the Islamic war on the same promise made centuries before, to unite or conquer every Islamic nation in MENA and then break down Europe. There is a reason nobody has ever conquered the world, namely there is too much there to take. The final question is what was the first warfare and earliest we had with Muslims. The problem the world faces is whether it might be possible for Islam to conquer the world and impose their law, every part of Sharia, on an unsuspecting world of souls. Some claim the initial attack was the wars with the Barbary Pirates, but are they correct or is it something far more recent and seldom given a single thought; can you name the start of the modern war on the Western World?
