The basis for the “Two State Solution” is to share a land equally between two peoples who both have an attachment and love for the land. If only this were so there might be some means by which it would work. The problem is that this premise is a lie. There can never be a two state solution which will satisfy one side because they have no love for the land, they are driven by a different drummer, and then there are two groups who wish to live productively, so let’s compare and contrast the driving force behind each of the three groups. We will start with the Jewish desires of the two Jewish residents and then the Palestinian side after a few clarifying notes. There are two completely separate Arab cultures and two somewhat separate Jewish groups. These disparate groups can all but one live in this land relatively peaceably but that final group can never be appeased and has the same desires as the extreme groups currently spreading their insatiable drive across Europe and into the United States and Canada, a group with whom there is no middle ground.

 

The easiest group for us to define is the Zionist Jews. They are here to realize a dream which has lived simmering just below the surface sometimes breaking through as happened to a fervent group led by the likes of Theodor Herzl, Ze’ev Jabotinsky and Rabbi Zalman Melamed, each at their own time and in their own way. The Zionist Jew has a desire to live once again in the ancestral home of the Jewish People, to live in Eretz Yisroel. The Zionist shares this dream with countless Jews throughout modern history and considers living outside of Israel as a form of punishment that though started by the Roman dispersal of the Jewish People to the farthest hinterlands of the Roman Empire in order to destroy the central pillars of Judaism which would necessarily lead to the death of the Jewish People within a couple of generations. This is what had happened to other peoples the Roman Empire had so treated but the Jewish People had a secret weapon, so to speak, called Torah. The attachment to the land of Israel was rooted in the Torah Scroll and thus Judaism is rooted in the Land and in Torah. Without the sacred and blessed land of our forefathers we were not completely lost and rudderless, we still had Torah; the Commandments, though some were to remain unfulfilled as they dealt with the land, the Priesthood, the Temple, the required Sacrifices; the rules for living a righteous life; the dietary laws; and other rules including the Oral Law which was for the first time written down. Torah became the link between one Jew and the next Jew and in Torah was the promise that in the future we would regain our land and rebuild the Holy Temple. The Zionist desire was to realize the dream of living in our Biblical and ancient lands. The Zionist dream was to live and rebuild our ancestral lands and reestablish the Promised Land to its place of prominence in our lives. This was always expected to be a realization which would take generations before it would be a dream fulfilled though the growing anti-Semitism may be the force which speeds up the return of the Jewish People to the land. The dream of the Zionist is one of rebuilding and restoration.

 

There are other Jews who were born in Israel who do not share or understand the significance of living in Israel. Many of them simply desire to live a normal life without complications and who want to find a solution to the conflict. There are also Jews born in Israel who are Zionist and thus share the dram described above and treasure their fortune of being native born and the reality that the dream has started to become a reality. There is little difference between the native born Zionist and their cousins who are returning to the lands; both have a deeply rooted tie to the land through Torah whether they can define it as such or not. Then there are the leftist Jews who do not share the Zionist dream and actually see the Jewish presence as denying the Arabs their lands and actively work to undermine any religious or secular drive to restore the Holy Lands as they see both secular and religious Zionism as being the problem and see both groups as actually being religious. Most of these Jews are referred to as post-modernist who have moved presumably beyond the primitive religions of the world and are now enlightened and thus true believers in this New Age leftist, and often environmental and so many other leftist progressive causes and thus more advanced than the simple minded Zionists who need to be awakened to the reality that they are invaders stealing the lands which has to be stopped. These Jews have so much in common with the anti-Israel activists found largely in Europe and throughout the Western World. They support the most extreme Arab claims seeing that desire to own the land as superior to any Jewish claims to the land. Many of these Post-Zionist Jews have over the past forty years or so been moving out of Israel seeing nothing special and placing no real attachment to the lands leaving it to live in Europe where their views on life are a better fit. Some of these Jews when faced with the vile and visceral anti-Semitism begin to understand some of the logic for a Jewish nation as a place of refuge from the hatreds and some even gain a further understanding of the Zionist love for a Jewish State, some solely the logic and fortunately the majority the religious. Still, there are the many who are so sold on their post-modernist lifestyle that they work ardently to destroy Israel as a national homeland of the Jewish People regarding such as a racist and supremacist set of values and one that has to be destroyed if the nirvana of the truly multi-ethnic society where all peoples are equal in value and there is no nationalist identity exists and everybody is a citizen of the world. These Progressive Jews are progressives first and foremost and secondarily Jewish if even remaining Jewish does not interfere with their progressive lifestyle and political socialist views and mores.

 

The indigenous Arab population, many of which arrived after the initial influx of Zionists had arrived and brought with them an economic outlook and productivity that increased the economic base of the area providing for more and better paying jobs. It was this economic environment of opportunity for a better life which attracted many of the first Arabs to move their families here to share in this opportunity for wealth and a comfortable life for their children when they grew up. These Arabs joined with the Jews though often the two groups lived in communities separate but in close proximity so as to share in the bounty of the land and the economic wealth. This influx started towards the end of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. It was when the Arab nationalist movement first became a relevant segment of the Arab societies that the initial buds of the desire to take over the lands where presumably the plan was to establish one Jewish state amongst the fields of Arab states being established throughout the now defeated and defunct Ottoman Empire, and what would come to be seen as the last caliphate which must be rebuilt. This Arab nationalism was used by the Mufti of Jerusalem to whip up resentment for the Jews who had come and were stealing lands that were rightfully Arab lands. It was implied that the Jews were stealing the land and Arab wealth and it was the Arab economic opportunity which brought the Jews to the area being denoted under the British Mandate to form a Jewish state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, an area of extreme economic opportunity which had even built cities with commercial and manufacturing centers resembling the cities in Europe and the United States and the rest of the Western World. Even the mode of dress was largely Western in its appearance. Still, a large portion of the Arab population remained dedicated to raising their families and was not drawn into the nascent Arab-Israeli conflict. There were riots started which were stoked by some of the British who were set against the formation of a Jewish state and assisted the Arab nationalism as their weapon against these Jews who desired to form a Jewish state. They viewed the idea of Jews having their own nation as an affront to all they believed and held as holy. In their limited view of history, which started somewhere around the twelfth century, the Jews were a despised, small and petty group of undesirables to be scorned and looked down upon. These British anti-Semites, for lack of a better description as actually theirs was the mainstream view throughout most of Europe, saw the Jews in the Mandate lands as an oddity as they were proud and strong, completely unlike the Jews in Europe, these Jews obviously did not know their place. Their fellow Arabs who were working to build a nation that would no longer need the British heel on their collective throats ignored the British and their values as much as was possible and continued their lives. After World War II and the revelations of the Holocaust, the idea of finally acting on that promise given back in the San Remo Conference which was finally ratified in April of 1920 and backed by the League of Nations by unanimous affirmation and later agreed to by the United States in an agreement with the British. This was the point the Mufti of Jerusalem simply was unable to allow and thus he began assembling groups to fight against this idea.

 

That leads right into the final group, the Arabs who refused to permit anything which permitted Jews to rule over Arabs, even as equals before the law. They knew only Sharia by which the Jew would be cast off to the realm of the Dhimmi, the scorned and abused second class people who were subservient to their Islamic masters by whose grace they were permitted to exist. Eventually this led to the KGB established Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was established in 1964 and had as its charter the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel which would then be united with the rest of Jordan and the Jews subjugated or murdered. The PLO was a nationalist and socialist organization designed around the call to destroy Israel and remove any lands from Jewish ownership just as had been done by Jordan when they managed to retain Judea and Samaria from the initial war of eradication which pitted seven nations and militias against Israel the initial morning of her existence and before anything resembling a national military could be established. Still, somehow the separate Jewish organizations merged and formed a rudimentary military which would succeed in defending much of the lands. The PLO was organized and trained mostly in Jordan with many of its leaders taken to Moscow where they received specialized training by the KGB in guerilla warfare tactics and revolutionary ideals and the best manner of methods to use against the Israelis. Their basic premise was that if they committed sufficient numbers of horrific terrorist strikes the Jews would turn tail and run. There was one main error in their reasoning, that the Jews would have anywhere to run to that had the same meaning of their national homeland in which they had resided for more than three-thousand years, far outstripping the under two-thousand years of exile. The Jews had returned to their lands of promise and eventual salvation and could not think of a place they would ever accept replacing Eretz Yisroel. But the PLO eventually got an Islamist entity which would compete with them for the crown of the greatest enemy of the Jews, and not just Israeli Jews as Hamas in their charter call for the eradication of Jews throughout the world (and beyond if it should ever be found that the Jews really are from another planet and have their own mothership sitting on the backside of the Moon). Then there came an alphabet soup of groups all fighting to destroy the Jewish state which included Islamic Jihad, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Fatah, Abdullah Azzam Brigades, Abu Nidal Organization, Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Al-Quds Brigades, Arab Liberation Front (ALF), Army of Islam, Black September Organization, Popular Revolutionary Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PRFLP), Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), Palestine Liberation Front (PLF), Force 17 (Security force for the leader of the PA), Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, and Palestinian Authority (PA). There have been other such as those claiming to be followers of al-Qaeda and ISIS as well a smaller groups which surround a charismatic leader but many such groups eventually fall to the side and merge with one of the major groups. The table is currently set with Hamas and Islamic Jihad ruling in Gaza while the remainder of the PA, which is mostly comprised of Fatah and the PLO which overlap in membership and leadership with each other and the PA. The driving force behind most of the current PA is to play up their victimhood and play on the guilt feelings of the Western world in order to gain the one manner the Western world knows to perform penance, they send funding and promise further contributions to the cause. To continue to receive these guilt payments there is a necessary but unspoken second necessity, this oppressing group which is to be thought of as evil and a horrific injustice. For the Arab cause it is this anathema that is the Jewish state, Israel. This serves as a twofer for many in Europe, they are supporting the downtrodden Arabs and at the same time ridding their world eventually, should their Palestinian allies ever succeed, of that most unholy of things, a Jewish state. The argument many of the progressives make is that Israel is a theocracy which by definition must be oppressing all the non-Jews and exalting the Jewish religion. They refuse to allow the freedom of religion laws which are part of the Basic Laws which form a legal backbone to the nation of Israel. The fact that the Palestinian Arabs demand that their areas be made Jew free is completely understandable by the Europeans and the Western world. In their post-modern world view which has reached such heights of reason and truth that their nations are self-destructing through a refusal to bother to have children as such is such a bother and requires difficulties which are just too messy to put up with. That is the gift of having no religious moral underpinning which makes the dedication to others, especially the youth who are to come to the world you leave them, and replace that with a simplistic Cyrenaic Hedonism or other offshoot of Hedonism in place of the morality of the previous religiously guided, and considered restrained, life where the raising of children was held in high regard as such preserved the future of the system and guaranteed the central pillars of the society. Often those pillars were also shared by the religious institutions and have been cast aside completely as the post-modernist seeks to be rid of those old-fashioned codes. This makes Israel a reminder of their former restrained lives and the fact that Israel is succeeding while Europe finds itself in a quagmire of a quandary of where did it go so very wrong. Thus they cast Israel as the representation of everything they hated from within their history and cast the Arabs as the innocent indigenous peoples who are enslaved and brutalized by the colonialist, capitalist, racist, oppressive and, worst of all, religiously observant continuation of the old and evil European values. Never mind that the Jews were either the brutalized of the Europeans or of the colonizing, conquering, religious, enslaving and master oppressors who had burst from the Arabic Peninsula towards the end of the first millennia and spread their will of force across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on into east Asia, southeastern Europe, Southwestern Europe, the Balkans, northwestern China and are currently attempting another expansion, their third, into south and central Africa and the Horn of Africa, southern Europe and beyond throughout Europe, and all of Western world taking a foothold in the campuses across the Western World and into government bureaucracies taking particularly into planning for school boards and other central controlling departments. The Europeans are willing to cut their own throats if it rids the world of that anathema and effrontery known as Israel, the Jewish State. In this hatred the Arab World stands in complete harmony with the Europeans and apparently the United States State Department except the Arab World’s reasons are very different as the Arab World’s reasoning is Islamic and based in a supremacist religious interpretation of the Quran. For a basic view into and describing the initial events and interpretations that guide much of Islam to this very day read our introduction to the duplicitous stories within the Quran explained Which Quran, Mecca or Medina?. The reality is that the European and the Islamists are in complete harmonious thought for diametrically opposite reasons, one fleeing anything religious and the other intent on the supremacy of their religion, holding the destruction of Israel as one of the prominent aims of their societal norms. Another difference is the Europeans are also destroying any hopes that their beliefs and societies will continue more than one or two generation forward and the Islamists are willing to assist this as long as their religious theocracy replaces the European post-modernist belief structure. So the Western world desires to take Israel down as its final achievement before disappearing while the Islamists simply want to steamroll Israel while also stretching their dominion over the remainder of the globe.

 

The saddest reality is the Islamists militancy will eventually destroy the peaceable Arabs who simply want to raise their families and bring them into a world which holds the greatest promise for their children’s children, a very similar desire shared by the Jewish People, especially the religious Jews. The Jews also have one other desire, to build their homelands to their former glory all held within the areas from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River and no further. The Jews have no desires to rule the world or even to influence the world beyond the hopes that the Noahic Code, seven laws on which to base any civilization be used to guide the rest of the world and we will attempt to live by example of what righteousness can bring and to make discoveries and insights which we will gladly share with all who desire knowledge, be that knowledge in medicine, computers, agriculture, manufacturing, resource preservation or any knowledge of discovery which would go to further the development of the better human spirit and the ability for all peoples to live harmoniously. That is the gift we will exchange for this little strip of land at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. Fair enough?

The Middle East has never seen the conflux of terminal situations as it is being currently forced to witness. Needless to point out that all of them have an Israeli contingency or are solely placing its sights squarely on Israel. The most obvious is the Iranian nuclear threat and the lacking of a spine amongst the Western Powers leaving once again the solution squarely with Israel, which begs the question as to what will the world, particularly the Western Powers, do if the problem is shown to be beyond Israeli conventional capabilities thus leaving the choice between Western Power intervention, a nuclear armed Iran spreading its hegemonic desires upon the Middle East, Northern Africa and all of Europe or, potentially the worst possible solution, a tactical nuclear strike to decapitate the Iranian leadership by any of the nations potentially threatened by a nuclear Iran. The obvious best scenario would be for the Western Powers, particularly the United States or the European Union acting as a single power including its complete membership acting as one to make known to Iran that either they terminate their nuclear weapons dreams, dismantle their nuclear sites allowing for inspections of every step along the way to assure compliance or face even more all-inclusive sanctions than Iran has faced to this point. Unfortunately, the United States is currently led by a President who sees empowering Iran and making them the new main ally of the United States with Iran in the superior position and the United States engaged as the supportive partner providing cover through negotiations to permit nuclear weapons capability of deliverable warheads, not just a single warhead but potentially hundreds of deliverable nuclear warheads spanning the complete range from thermonuclear city-busting devices to EMP yields capable of striking down the electrical grids of the continental United States and Canada or the entirety of Europe or the Russian grid including surrounding satellite nations to tactical weapons deployable in support of ground-forces engaging any foe’s opposing armies. This would be the result of the current Framework should the Farsi translation as claimed by the Iranian nuclear negotiating hierarchy which has been backed fully by the leadership and finally given the stamp of authenticity by the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei (in Farsi: حسینی خامنه‌ای سید علی) be proven valid and still acceptable.

 

Thus far, there has been total silence given as a response by the White House which implies that they know full well that the Framework they allowed the Iranians to mold due to the United States team’s compliance and their taking the position of explaining the Iranian demands being planted as the Framework was the better choice than implementing a military response as no sane individual desires to start a war. The reasoning by President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and the entirety of the United States negotiators is flawless as long as the sole alternative to the present situation was to start a war, a completely specious and disingenuous choice which is fully noted by the White House. President Obama is presenting a dishonestly fallacious choice and he knows so. This was the given alternative when President Obama responded to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu speech to a Joint Session of Congress where the underlying theme of his speech was that war was not the sole and obvious alternative to this bad deal, a better deal brought forth through the reapplication of the relaxed sanctions and potentially the imposition of even stricter and more encompassing sanctions but never war. President Obama along with White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest and supporting members of the White House public interface as well as the myriad of spokespeople from the State Department such as but not limited to Jen Psaki, Victoria Nuland and Marie Harf have all adopted the proven irrational choice as between whatever deal eventually is hammered out or war. The first falsehood is it is well known that President Obama will not only refuse to choose the military option; he will not even move it on the table to give the appearance of having been considered. With the United States actually taking the other side, evidence provided by Amir Hossein Mottaghi, known to have managed media, Internet and other electronic dealings for Rouhani during his 2013 Presidential election campaign, sought asylum and in interviews related how the Iranian media at the Lausanne negotiations were merely tools used to control the information fed to the Iranian people. But Amir Hossein Mottaghi’s biggest coup was his reporting that, “The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the P5+1 countries and convince them of a deal.”

 

Apparently the most feasible, productive and potentially desirable outcome has to be a better deal than what has been made as evidenced by the Iranians with their apparent belief that the Framework Agreement stipulates allowing them to continue with their nuclear program unhindered by the coming deal. The Iranians fully expect to dictate the terms for the final agreement and President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry will take that as the direction for the P5+1 to go. This has to be prevented and the fastest and most probable path to successfully doing so would be attained simply by the European Union taking the lead dismissing the United States as having become useless. The Europeans first move after dismissing the United States leadership would be to threaten to reapply the strongest sanctions so as to get the full attention of the Iranian leadership. Perhaps with a new threat of actually having an opposing side would bring the Iranians back to the negotiating table this time duly shamed thus ready to actually negotiate and realize that they will not be permitted to continue having everything their way. Once the European Union had coordinated with the United Nations and brought them on board with the Europeans’ rejection of the leadership role played by the United States, the European Union would necessarily need to carry negotiations forward at a speed far faster than the United States which would be potentially possible simply by using the original draft of a Framework with the major points which the United States has dropped until the Framework Agreement had become meaningless. The European Union taking such an initiative might just jumpstart the United States role as a senior or lead negotiator. Should the United States attempt to reestablish their predominance within the workings of the negotiations, the European Union should refuse such a move further reestablishing their reassuming the lead role. One might even desire going so far as to relieve the United States of having an overriding veto over any of the provisions as their actions have proven their lack of serious desire to even minimally restrict the Iranian nuclear program. Anything short of rejecting the current Framework and returning to the basic demands from before the United States eventually stripped them of any relevance would make all efforts futile. There is still the possibility of having a finished and signed better deal by the end of June providing that the European Union is willing to take a principled stance or if they are going to permit this freak-show being staged by the United States Iran will be a nuclear armed nation by Christmas. Serious reapplication of the full range of sanctions would get the full attention of the European insistence that Iran become serious or face really serious sanctions going forward for as long as it takes. These were the sanctions which had actually brought the Iranians to the negotiating table and were also the sanctions which President Obama just could not wait to relax that he held private talks with the Iranians and relaxed the sanctions without receiving even a single concession. That has become the latest way that negotiations have operated with the rest of the P5+1 joining sessions which are held so that the United States can dictate the latest surrender of points to the Iranians and present them as great victories though anybody with 20/20 vision and half a brain can see they are exactly the opposite as each rendition is weaker than the previous and the whole while the United States has pulled hard for weakening the sanctions. But unfortunately the European Union has been so weakened that their once proud nations which traveled the globe with their strong forces of trade protected by navies and marines who were the envy of the world are no more and their dependence on the protections of other nations has left them incapable of taking such a lead role.

 

But there has been one place where the Europeans have found their abilities to act with resolute strength, Israel. The European Union and individual governments have already primed the engines of industry to rush into Iran as soon as sanctions are lifted, if they even wait that long after witnessing the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile system recently reactivated violating both the Iranian sanctions still in place and the sanctions against their engaging in such activities due to their offenses in the Ukraine. The strongest words about the Russian jumping the gun did emanate from the White House where President Obama stated his surprise that the Russians held off this long considering the weakness displayed by the United States and other nations involved in the negotiations with Iran. But these same weaklings who are unable to even look the Iranian leadership in the eye will glare at Israel demanding her surrender of all lands which International Law assigns as legally Israeli lands. The Europeans do not care and for as long as the United States shows no favor to their longtime loyal friend, the Europeans will continue displaying their hatred for Israel with some expressing regrets over voting for the Jewish State both in 1920 after the initial findings during the San Remo Conference and again in November of 1947 which may have actually had much to do with the revelations of the Holocaust and the extent the hatreds were permitted by the allies as well as the axis powers. But now the many nations, especially the so proper and perfect in their attire and manner of speech always sticking to the approved progressive reasons and smugly purporting such superiority while they quiver before the Muslim threats they have no difficulty demonizing and walking forward with the destruction of Israel, the Jewish State, for they are fully aware that Israel will not strike them for their spiteful hatred while the Muslims might smite them even if they demur perfectly into their roles as Dhimmi bowing before their Islamic masters. The world will soon face a choice, a great choice which will be their final choice, Israel or Islam, with which will each of us stand? The choice in this instance is not merely for nations but for individuals to choose. Needless to point out that should an individual living in any nations that stands to ally with Israel and you choose to ally with Islam, you will have your choice protected, but if you choose Israel and your nation chooses Islam then you had best move to a nation which will accept your choice for the nations that choose Islam will be unable to couch an individual who desired any other choice. The clouds have been on the horizon for as long as I can remember, and I can remember back to President Ike and the campaign buttons screaming, “I Like Ike!” Those were good days in so many ways and also had their share of evil, an evil which sought to minimize the presence of Blacks in many public places as well as private. Lesser remembered were the places both public but mostly private where a Jew was unwelcome. The sixties and seventies came and went and much of the segregations had been eliminated yet there were still those private clubs closed to Black and Jew alike. Eventually these hatreds were supposedly conquered but we all know those few Neanderthals who refuse to bury their hatreds. In the United States the religion which has had the most hateful crimes perpetrated against them from 1900 to 2000 was far and away Jews. Since 2001 and the World Trade Center disaster the popular opinion has been that Islam became the religion which suffered the most hate crimes but that perception is not backed up by the statistics as the Jews remain the religion with the highest number of hate crimes perpetrated against them.

 

The real sadness is the singling out of the Jews over the centuries has now been applied to the national home for the Jews. This is beyond any moral fathoming and the world has but two societies which support the nation of Israel, one obvious and the other far less so. The largest support for Israel comes from the Evangelical Christians who easily surpass the Jews in their support. As difficult as it may be to believe, the Evangelical Christians support Israel in a higher percentage than does the Jewish community in the United States and this is even after discounting those religious Chassidim communities who do not accept Israel due to religious interpretations of Torah believing that Israel is to be established by the Messiah and not before. Still the Jewish communities within the United States take second place behind the Evangelical Christians in their support for Israel. Why, you might ask, would the Jews not be at one-hundred-percent supporting of Israel? The Jews who least support Israel are the least observant of strict Jewish traditions and commandments. These are Jews who have redefined their Jewish religious observance to match the progressive agendas. They place acceptance of all individuals above Jewish laws about marriage by their not only accepting same sex marriages but condone performing such ceremonies with their Rabbi officiating in their Sanctuaries. They replaced the idea of perfecting the world through doing all possible to perfect oneself and by such example change the world with the ideal that for every problem there must be a government program to address and form a solution, which is normally to just throw money at the problem. They have replaced G0d with government and thus are comfortable with an all-powerful government as government is the source of all goodness. They sold their soul to the progressive cause, have also accepted the progressive leftist beliefs that Israel is an Apartheid state which persecutes the Palestinians and is illegitimate, and are most likely to condemn Israel of any crime anyone brings against Israel. As a Zionist, very likely from birth, I have always had difficulty interacting with the Progressive, leftist, whites are the source of all evil, Israel has no right to exist, whacko, crazy, lunatic-leftist, earth-first, Ghia worshipping, statist Jews by birth only. Whenever I meet one when traveling even within Israel I carefully refuse to speak about even the weather as that inevitable is taken straight to what in the current weather will bring the end of all life on the planet we are all doomed to some anthropomorphic apocalyptic cataclysm. Did I mention also insane and you do not want to know how I really feel.

Every once in a while the writing of an article virtually daily gets to a point where you ask yourself if perhaps you are looking so hard at a few items that you may be missing the big picture. You realize that you have burrowed into one subject and you have to take stock and realize if maybe this one main has consumed you. I was thinking that perhaps the whole Iran toxic miasma which has surrounded me and others might be hiding something just as important or even more threatening and pressing that it may be time to look elsewhere for another angle or new subject. So why don’t we try and see some of the other items of the day that are happening and see what we can decipher.

 

One of the items I have seen rising is the challenges to the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. The claim is as valid as can be, the charge that he is an illegitimate leader since he has not been elected to the post and it is way past time for him to stand for reelection and answer the rising challenges from others who believe he has become obsolete and his belief that he can be President for Life is far too dictatorial and the Arab people deserve an elected leader who is more in tune with their hopes and dreams. The challenge comes from a man who desires to unseat Abbas as President of Fatah and to restructure Fatah to serve the real desires of the Arab people and their desire for a whole and entire state. There was only one small fly in this ointment which makes it as illegitimate as Abbas and potentially even worse. The person behind this Abbas must stand for election now or give up his right to lead does not have the desires of the Arab people living west of the Jordan River in mind. How can I make such a statement? Well, easily as the person making this demand the loudest is likely the man who would try and unseat him and take his place, Mahmoud al-Zahar. For those unfamiliar with Mahmoud al-Zahar allow me to fill in some of the more pertinent information. Mahmoud al-Zahar is a long-time Hamas leader who vilifies Abbas as being too passive and not seeking the desire of the Arabs of destroying Israel and replacing it with the heart of the next Caliphate blessed with the blood of every Israeli and Arab living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea who fails to meet his standard of belief and dedication to a rising Islamic supremacy which will, as per the Hamas Charter, seek out every corner of the world and annihilate every Jew and disbeliever. This would be a frightening thought for somebody who may actually be a credible threat to replace Abbas as the leader of Fatah and then become a legitimate claimant to lead the Authority. Fortunately, al-Zahar is a member of Hamas and not Fatah, not that this would prevent him from running to replace Abbas, presumably making him ineligible to run for the position. If he were to challenge Abbas as the leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA) then he would have a legitimate claim to the position as the unity government is technically in place and valid. Perhaps this makes it feasible for al-Zahar to attempt to unseat Abbas from Fatah, who knows the inner workings, dysfunctional as they may be, of the Arab Fatah Party structure and whether the unity government would add its blessing to such a challenge. But fear not for if one looks deeply enough into the eyes of al-Zahar and peers into his darkened soul one would find the heart of a true Hamas leader whose ideas and ideals come partially from hatreds he is steeped in as a leader of Hamas and gained locally and there are further drives for an Arab entity to replace all the lands west of the Jordan River including all of Israel and purify such a nation in blood. A look just slightly deeper into al-Zahar’s soul and one finds the hands of Iran manipulating many of his actions and implanting desires of leading a victorious Arab army conquering the lands and cleansing them for his Iranian masters. There for all to witness is the driving heart of al-Zahar; simply another soldier of Iran waiting anxiously for the day when the order is given to rise up and claim all the lands which are Israel for his Iranian masters.

 

Then one can decide to look further afield to the new interest in Argentine where the official Offices of the Prosecutors is not only looking into the mysterious death of one of their own, Alberto Nisman, who was assassinated the morning right before he was scheduled to present his findings concerning the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA; Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) where eighty-five people were murdered and the injured numbered over three-hundred. Alberto Nisman had presumably uncovered evidence which implicated criminal accusations which he had filed against President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Apparently Mr. Nisman discovered plans, a plot even, to permit the attack by Hezballah and Iranian terrorists on the Jewish Community Center in a deal in which it was believed that the Argentine government had sought the arrangement as part of a trade pact with Iran. So, here again we find Iran’s sticky little terrorist fingers only this time the deeds appear to have been carried out by Hezballah in conjunction with the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps or “Pasdaran”) both operating out of the “Tri-Border Region” which is a long standing center for the training and launching point for terrorist activities in the Americas located where the borders of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil conjoin allowing for each nation to ignore the town and training areas set up by the IRGC along with Hezballah claiming it is within the other two national areas of jurisdictions and as such they have no powers under which to investigate. It appears that the tri-border facility has a really nice set-up going there on the border of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil and financed and directed by the IRGC enforcing the interests and policies of Iran in the Americas. So, here to it all leads back to the Mullahs in Iran.

 

There have been warnings from the IDF over the possibility of a front opening up other than the expected repeat of last summer and the firing of rockets from out of Gaza into most of Israel, with as anywhere from a thousand to fifteen-hundred rockets each day from out of Lebanon and probably mainly from Syria onto the entirety of Israel and with some longer range rockets actually being new missiles which have excellent accuracy and may prove to be a large problem should they be used to target Tel Aviv or the Dimona Nuclear Research Site outside of the Capital of the South, Beer-Sheva. The main perpetrator of these rockets and missiles which will reach the entire length of Israel is largely Hezballah possibly receiving some support from the IRGC. These attacks will be directed from Tehran and may come in support of the rocket attacks from Gaza and possibly some from the Sinai Peninsula. Unsurprisingly, the orders for both the barrages from the north as well as those from the south by Hamas will be at the directive from where else, that’s right, Iran.

 

Apparently there is a good reason why almost all of our posts have been concerning Iran and their apparent drive for nuclear weapons and President Obama’s naiveté in his handling of the entire negotiations. President Obama is accomplishing two objectives simultaneously by allowing Iran all the time they require to realize their needs for nuclear weapons and refining them to produce a device capable of delivering a knockout electromagnetic pulse (EMP) along the design provided Iran by Russia for their super EMP device which was originally intended by the Soviet Union to deliver a knockout punch to either the European Union electrical grid or to destroy the United States and partially the Canadian electronic grids. This or any other nuclear device would appear to be the goal of the Iranians to continue the negotiations which, for the benefit of Iran would be to continue until they had sufficient devices to allow the usage of one device as a notification that the Iranians have arrived at the gates to the nuclear group demanding admittance and recognition. To continue the talks after such a demonstration would prove to be a further exercise in futility. The question then becomes what does the world do about a nuclear armed Iran and what does Iran do to further the reach of its already extensive network of tentacles reaching even to the far corners of the globe originating in Tehran.

 

We know of the very long and reinforced tentacle through which any strikes on the United States would be directed. Currently this tentacle can reach anywhere in South America through the tri-border area, the area which is currently focused on Buenos Aires and the investigation and eventually the potential trial of those implicated and arrests warrants issued which may implicate Tehran or Lebanon and Hezballah leaders. Such an eventuality might trigger the start of the planned assault on Israel from both directions, both along the northern front and the southern fronts. Should Iran desire to carry out any terrorist activities within the United States, such activities would easily be facilitated and provided access into the United States using their connections with the Mexican drug cartels who Hezballah has trained in tactics and other techniques used by Hezballah to all but run the country of Lebanon where they have free range to train, recruit and plan exercises which has made them one of the finest armies assisting Bashir al-Assad to continue his reign of murder and terror over the nation of Syria. Needless to point out but additionally Iran and Hezballah likely have numerous cells within the United States just waiting for the day they are activated to conduct a mission. The faithful execution of any missions such cells may be utilized to commit is often assured through holding family members within Lebanon as persuasion over their actions and trusted loyalty. We know Iran has extensive abilities to strike anywhere within the Americas as we witnessed in two separate bombings in Argentina the first was the bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, with the second being the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) on July 18, 1994, both in Buenos Aires. These were both perpetrated, as best as we can ascertain, by Hezballah trained operatives with the aid of special agents sent to the Tri-Border Region often in order for them to advance within the Basenji or the ranks of the IRGC, which both have initiation rites, one needs to successfully complete a terrorist operation in order to be considered trustworthy and committed.

 

On the European front there have been a number of terrorist attacks which potentially could have been traced back to Hezballah and Iran with the most recognized being the bombing of the Israeli tourist bus at the Burgas airport along the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. The threats posed by Hezballah have driven the European Union to have placed the “military wing” of Hezballah on their terrorist list, as if there is a non-militant wing of Hezballah. The European reference to the military wing is done so as to allow the Europeans to provide Hezballah funds in Lebanon for such things as building libraries, health clinics and the like which are actually built by the Lebanese government which has not been totally co-opted by Hezballah, at least not currently. There was also a Cyprus magistrate who in March of 2013 indicted a Hezballah courier in Plot to Attack Israeli Tourists. There exist terrorist entities within the civil strife ongoing in Libya which unsurprising as virtually any terrorist groups even to include both ISIS and al-Qaeda have splinter groups inside Libya. Their representation in Libya is just one example of Hezballah presence in northern Africa. In the Middle East there have been reports recently that Hezballah has offered the Houthis in Yemen assistance if they feel it would benefit their efforts. Everybody by now knows that the Iranians have been supplying guns, ammunition, crew-served weapons and the training with the more advanced weapons to assist them in their conquest of the remainder of Yemen. And then there are the Iranians who appear to have completely taken over the ground operations against ISIS in Iraq so completely that the Iranian commanders are the people making the calls for airstrikes. This is a development which should be cause for alarm on behalf of the European and United States pilots and their actual commanders to be relying so completely on Iranian officers and even enlisted men of which most likely belong to the IRGC, a group considered as a borderline or actually declared terrorists and they are now calling in allied air strikes. How are the pilots to know that their strikes are supporting ground actions and not supporting the wonton destruction of property and lives being carried out by the Shiite IRGC members who have been murdering Sunni Iraqis who survived the ISIS occupation and are not facing violence and destruction often by Iraqi troops who actively aid in the destruction of entire Sunni villages and neighborhoods.

 

Finally we get back to the root source of so much of the terrorist and militia violence around the world and who stands as the commander of cells who could turn Europe or the United States into a roiling turmoil striking at soft targets such as malls holding special weekend only sales events, state and county fairs, political rallies, sporting events or anywhere that a large number of people would be attending making for a rich field of victims simply provided for the murdering much as happened in Nairobi, Kenya or the Embassy attacks using car-bomb attacks in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Whether any assaults by terrorist murderers were actually perpetrated by directly linkable entities to Iran or belonging to al-Qaeda or Hamas, both Sunni Muslim terrorist groups, have received safe quarter, training, arming and whatever other resources these presumably enemy Sunni entities to the majority Shiite Iran, but Iran is pragmatic and willing to assist in any actions which will harm Israeli or Western interests and pressure democratic governments potentially causing their collapse. Iran has been behind so many different murderous attacks and has tentacles reaching across the entirety of the globe such that the terror attack planned for next week, or next month or whenever you least expect it, hold sure that it very well will be traceable to Iranian assistance or actual manpower and arms support. Those who accuse Iran of being the greatest sponsor of terrorism on the face of the Earth are serious and know of what they speak. Iran changed drastically largely due to the incompetence and unfathomably simple-minded reasoning by then United States President Jimmy Carter.

 

He rationalized that the Shah of Iran who was methodically bringing Iran forward integrating advanced Western technological and manufacturing possibly even with the intent of eventually installing democratic principles, but all President Carter saw was a wealthy despot taking wealth from his people. On the other side President Carter believed that the Ayatollah Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini had to be a kind and benevolent person as he was a cleric and religious person. Needless to say but President Carter knew little or nothing, if even that much, about Islam and the messianic message commanding that Islam must be spread by any and all means necessary until it becomes the only religion for all mankind on planet Earth and that the Ayatollah Khomeini was a man dedicated to that end. President Carter accepted the promises from Ayatollah Khomeini that he would establish a Western style democracy and grant the people of Iran freedoms and rights beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations. Well, we can assume that the Ayatollah delivered on the actions beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations when the Ayatollah allowed, some like I believe aided and planned, the takeover of the United States Embassy followed by a four-hundred-forty-four days until the next President, Ronald Reagan, was inaugurated at which point fearing and immediate war being launched by the new President, ended the siege and returned the hostages. After the final release of every last hostage, the truths about some of the treatment received by the hostages with some being accused of being spies and torture used to coerce confessions and other atrocities, the full and shocking story was finally told. It is good to know that the Iranian leadership has not changed that much from the early days in 1979 when Ayatollah Khomeini returned triumphantly and installed his theocracy and all the horrors one might imagine.

 

Now we have President Barrack Obama who looks to Iran and sees a potential ally who can replace the current United States allies of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel and take over as the hegemonic power in the Middle East which will not require United States military presence, an ultimate goal of President Obama, removing the United States military presence from everywhere outside the American borders. Iran, now under the rule of Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, has changed as little as the names of its rulers’ have, from Khomeini to Khamenei. The Ayatollah Khamenei is more than happy and quite eager to take advantage of every possible advantage he realizes he holds over President Obama. This has been most evident in the nuclear arms negotiations where the representatives for the United States state their position and the Iranian negotiators state their position. Then the debate begins eventually leading to a one-on-one meeting behind closed doors between United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister and Chief Negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif. These are often long and drawn-out sessions and when they finally are completed the two men meet with their respective teams and negotiations continue with one slight alteration, the United States negotiators are now assisting the Iranian in pressing their positions on France, Britain and Germany. This has been the basic functioning premise of the negotiations with it becoming almost comical had it not also been such a disaster for the western world including Israel and the Middle East especially for Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Jordan and I guess we can include Israel again as it does seem to be twice as much trouble where Israel is concerned. The one nation which appears will win no matter which side, Saudi Arabia or Iran, becomes the leader of the Islamic world, and that is Turkey which is sitting on both sides of the fence. In the meantime the Iranians are spinning their way to nuclear weapons and holding the biggest club over the Middle East, North Africa and eventually Europe and capable of going toe-to-toe with Russia as by then Iran will be the hegemonic power of half of the world and well on their way to completing the dream of Islam since 765 A.D. Much of the most recent round of nuclear negotiation talks have been the stuff of nightmares and are promising to only get worse. There is no actual candidate who will play savior and come dashing over the hill riding high on his white stallion with a white Stetson atop his head blowing the bugle for the cavalry to charge in and save the day. I fear that President Obama has had the cavalry’s steeds sold off for a bag of magic beans. The question is will the world be capable of surviving the events yet to happen over the next two years. How much damage will be done by an Iranian menace cut loose and armed with nuclear warheads to enforce their will, how does the world coexist with that? Do we all survive a messianic cult with dreams of an eventual battle which engulfs the world and only then does their messiah arrive and grant them victory over a world made mostly of radioactive dust. What can we do and how can we do whatever will prevent the destruction of all everybody knows.
