We have been treated since the Israeli elections a serious case of pass the blame hot potato between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. This has been no different than the game which began with the proven mistake of all time, the Oslo Accords. The Oslo Accords were proven to be a complete façade when Ehud Olmert had his arm twisted to offer Arafat a deal which met all the expectations as Arafat had confidently requested from President Clinton and acquiesced offering ninety-five percent of the west Bank with East Jerusalem as their capital but to everyone’s’ surprise, Yasser Arafat bolted from the hearings without ever offering a counter offer or explanation. After returning to Ramallah he started the second Intifada which we eventually learned had been planned to follow the unsuccessful negotiations and had been in the plans for months. Ever since this teachable moment it should have become clear that no offer Israel could ever make would satisfy the Palestinian Arab desire for the destruction of Israel and nothing less. Still the only solution the world seems to believe is possible to end the eternal standoff is to demand that Israel offer to surrender more lands. This systemic inability to be capable to see beyond blaming Israel does not matter whether the President in the White House is Democrat or Republican, supposed friend or not, progressive or conservative; the resulting approach never changes and the demands for Israel to offer more remains the same, give and give even more and if that fails, then give even more.

 

Added to the difficulty, President Obama has bought the idea that it is Israel which stands in the way of peace, apparently the universal idea, but there are also the personality difficulties between the United States President and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Nothing could have brought this more into the spotlight and given off the most ominous of warnings than the efforts to derail the possibility that Netanyahu would be chosen to lead the new government seemingly directed from the White House, financed initially by the State Department and coordinated on the ground in Israel by Jeremy Bird who had recently run President Obama’s reelection grassroots campaign. With the reelection of Netanyahu the crisis has simply multiplied with the results for Israel becoming more dire with seemingly every news cycle. Initially there were reports that the United States may find it necessary to reevaluate their protection of Israel before the United Nations. The initial action in this direction was the announcement that the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council would be in Washington D.C. and unable to speak against the usual motions against Israel at the opening of the meetings. As it became known that the European governments were also not attending in protest the move by the United States simply appeared to be in line with the rest of the western world. The latest move has gone by relatively unnoticed but promises to explode once it is found out by Iran and other nations across the Middle East and North Africa.

 

Within the last month or so the Pentagon unclassified the entire documents from the Defense Department’s top-secret document detailing the Israeli nuclear program assessment from 1987. The release of these documents violates the longstanding agreement between the Israelis and the Pentagon is highly suspect given that it coincided with the timing of tensions spiraling out of control. This begs the question that if things have reached such a point, exactly where might the revenge against the Israeli public reach simply because they chose the strongest leadership being offered in their elections which is what one should expect from any nations, especially one facing the challenges and threats faced by Israel. Should Israel now expect that at least until the next administration is sworn into office that they no longer have even the remotest of hopes that they can rely on the United States? The Iran nuclear negotiations are even frightening the French who may be the last best hope of forcing a better deal, though it would be more likely that President Obama would sign an agreement without the French should they protest. Perhaps the best path forward for Israel is to broaden their reliance and strategic ties thus never again relying on one nation too deeply, especially any nation which might not only elect a leader who could potentially damage Israel critically but also reelect such a leader. Maybe it will take such mistreatment as appears to be the policies from the White House to realize that leaving all your eggs in one basket is simply betting too heavily that any nation can be so trusted.

Unfortunately Their Scorn Still Hurts Deeply Within

One thing which I always held dearly within my deepest thought was my ability to see the conflicts and other concerns which I had believed were being debated within Israel with an eye which could only be found in some Sabras, native Israelis from birth, and not with a Western eye, in my case an American eye. During my teens I read some editorials about Rabbi Meir Kahane and then found some materials written by the Rabbi and about the Jewish Defense League he had founded which stood for defending Israel by any means necessary. Rabbi Meir Kahane warned of a future Israel where terror and violence would become commonplace against the Jews leading to terror wars and wars with her neighbors with genocidal intents. Much to the consternation of my parents I took a great interest and made a grave misjudgment and brought up some of Rabbi Kahane’s views and was roundly reprimanded and demanded that I promise never to mention him ever again in the presence of my parents, their friends or any of the children of their friends, which in the 1960s meant not speaking of him to any of my friends, especially the Jewish friends from the neighborhood or from our synagogue. This did not prevent my reading about Rabbi Kahane and marveling at his views and depth of knowledge of Jewish Law, Torah, Bible and other writings of which I had little exposure. Perhaps should my retirement last a sufficient length with my mind intact I will be fortunate enough to remedy that problem with a patient teacher, a very patient teacher. With this bit of background it is probably not much of a challenge to believe that I was mostly shunned in almost every congregation I had belonged to in the United States and have been pleasantly thrilled with the strength and breadth of strongly Zionist Jews which I have met since making Aliyah. Perhaps this is because I chose to live in what is referred to as the periphery and nowhere near, well, as not near or far as Israel permits, from Tel Aviv and the central core which many like to believe is all of Israel. But even here where I am largely amongst people who share my all-encompassing love of Israel and firm desire to live around and be able to regularly, when the call drives me, visit any of the historic sites from Biblical times and other historic periods of Hebrew, Judean, and Israelite histories at my leisure I find the media, with a few wonderful and often brilliant exceptions, are just as condescending before the leftist views existing in Europe and around the western world.

 

I still feel the pangs and the disbelief and confusion when encountering news articles from the Diaspora, and especially the United States news and editorials, where the Jews reject Zionist views and question the electoral decisions, the government’s positions and anything, especially if it disagrees with their socialist, progressive world views, leaves and irreparable rift between the two societies. The most hurtful views come from those who want Israel to surrender to the whims of her enemies simply so the Jews in Europe, the United States and throughout the remainder of the western world cannot be pressed by their leftist friends and associates to explain and standup for Israeli government and Prime Minister’s opinions and political views. Probably the worst are the Jewish media personalities and especially news reporters and editorialists who write articles critical of Israel and insisting that Israel bow before her betters from around the world, also known as her critics, and demand that Israel meet the most anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic demands from the Arab and Muslim world, the European Union, the United Nations and especially the demands from the most antagonistic of all present political leaders on the face of the Earth, President Obama. Before anyone jumps to demand I retract that last presumed slur, let me save you the effort and wasted time, President Obama has shown a distaste for Israel and has been attempting to force Israel to kowtow to President Obama’s preconceived notions that it should be brought low before the Arab and Muslim worlds and especially before Iran and any other Islamist supremacist entity which stands against Israel. President Obama would order that all bombing of ISIS be restricted to the fronts against Bashir al-Assad and Iraq should ISIS ever turn their savagery towards Jordan as be allowing ISIS to occupy Jordan it would then be a short jump to engage Israeli forces and potentially have some modicum of success if left to do their worst. Should such a confrontation ever come to fruition it could be expected that President Obama would once again order that the State Department in conjunction with the Department of Transportation restrict all United States air traffic into or out of Israeli air space and the cancellation of all flights in and out of Ben Gurion International Airport for the duration of the conflict and possibly once again place an intermediary step requiring the State Department sign off on any rearmaments being designated for Israel thus preventing the direct resupply of the Israeli Defense Force directly by the Pentagon as has been the routine and necessary method by agreement. These were the acts which President Obama instigated during this past summer during Operation Protective Edge which was noticed and will long be remembered by many Israelis as such a situation existing in a longer and more difficult operation could prove costly in lives, something taken very seriously as amongst the majority of Israeli Jews, we view each other as family, close family as the thousands who showed up recently for the burial of the seven Jewish siblings who were killed in a horrific and devastating house fire in Brooklyn this past weekend and were buried here in Israel. The same was more often the case for the burial of the soldiers who gave their lives in the operations unless the families requested otherwise though often many would visit the graves the next day of their own volition in order to pay their respects and say good-bye and gain closure as they felt as if their own family member was laid to rest. It is a feeling which is very difficult to describe until one experiences such closeness and interconnectedness.

 

I have written about the recent unnecessary protestations and inane absurdity which has defined the actions of President Obama during his Presidency and particularly since the Israeli elections and falls short of describing the disproportionate, to use a word often utilized against Israel, exaggerations made by President Obama which have not only continued day after day but are apparently gaining in their impetus with ramifications and ever growing chastened retributions levied against the entirety of Israel for the audacity of electing the candidate which President Obama and the Europeans had invested so much effort, funding, manpower, organization and leadership to defeat in favor of what were expected to be more pliable and easily managed leadership. I would apologize except I so strongly resent the use of NGOs, a State Department indirectly funded group by the name of V15 or V2015 and funded via another group name OneVoice which had received $350,000 at the least from the State Department right before the elections were officially announced but will within the time period where the coming elections had become obvious even to the most casual of observers, and was further financed either directly, through other NGOs or through OneVoice by tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars and euros by Europeans, Americans, and even European governments many of which were from the Scandinavian areas. Had Israel ever interfered with a European’s or United States’ elections even to one-millionth of the amount that was put into defeating the reelection of Benyamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister there would have been a declared state of war and very possibly charges brought against Israel before the United Nations or one of the courts set up by the United Nations for bringing such nations interfering to such a degree to trail for their criminal efforts.

 

Now that the Israeli public had the overbearing chutzpah and pugnacious defiance to actually still vote for the Likud Party and other right wing, Zionist, nationalist, and religious parties such that Netanyahu would be returned to the office of Prime Minister, then Israel must be brought low and dragged through the grinder thus being torn asunder until the Israeli public rises up and demands Netanyahu’s head on a poll and new elections where this time the Israeli electorate will follow the instructive efforts of their betters electing empty shells who can be directed from New York and the United Nations, Washington D.C. and by President Obama and finally Brussels and the European Union as well as whatever input the remaining European governments decide they would demand and then wait for instructions from now and forever before ever casting a vote again. Perhaps the misunderstanding actually was unavoidable as the leaders of the western world are no longer all that familiar, for the most part, with the writings of Torah, the first five books of the Bible, the Old Testament I believe the Christians as do others refer to it, particularly in Exodus where it is repeated regularly noting that our ancestors were a stiff-necked and stubborn people that even the L0rd our G0d had difficulties gaining our ancestors’ attention and keeping them on the straight and narrow. This trait was so deeply ingrained in our ancestral personas that when Moses was a mere few hours late in returning after what he had promised would only take forty days and already evening was approaching and the start of the forty-first day that our misguided, obstinate and back-sliding instigators demanded an idol, a golden calf, and you want us to remember your distress with a certain leader which has caused you some difficult moments, sorry, we do not bend that easily even if it would be for our betterment.

 

Now there are many leftist Jewish columnists, editorialists and talk show hosts who have taken very stridently to calling for sanctions to be levelled against Israel and denoting their support to back President Obama in any punishment he determines is appropriate. Already we have witnessed the first strike against Israel with the claim that Israel has been spying on the Paris P5+1 negotiations with Iran and using any information gleaned through such spying to inform the United States Congress of what is occurring in the talks such that the Congress can attack President Obama and his, outside those Israeli reports, brilliant maneuvering and holding the line against the Iranian nuclear program and thus Israel is interfering in the governance of the United States just as deeply and just as furtively as the efforts to unseat Netanyahu were this making the two sides equal except the Israeli crime was more serious thus they still need further punishment. Of course it never does enter the United States mind that just as the British have been known to keep the Saudi Royals updated on the negotiations that the French might also be informing the Israelis and potentially the other members of the P5+1 might be talking to the Egyptians and others who might have an interest in the particulars and the likelihood that Iran will be left a mere hop, skip and a jump from attaining deliverable nuclear weapons and assembling an arsenal of deliverable nuclear weapons and the ballistic and intercontinental ballistic missiles with such warheads. In President Obama’s mind the culprit must be Israel as Israel with Prime Minister Netanyahu has been the bane of President Obama’s existence and the perceived source of all perversities foiling President Obama’s brilliant designs for the future world he desires to mold. What has been the central problem that many Israelis have had with President Obama has been his desire to remake the world without there being an Israel as a Jew state replaced by an Arab state called Palestine which will necessarily be free of any Jews. Where the Jews are supposed to go has not been considered. Perhaps President Obama believes as did former White House correspondent Helen Thomas who suggested when being asked for her opinion of Israel, “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.” She continued referring to the Arab Palestinians stating, “Remember, these people are occupied. And it’s their land.” She concluded insisting the Jews should “go home” to Poland, Germany and America. The video is below.

What neither Helen Thomas or the others who share her belief which some claim includes President Obama is where do the nearly one million Jews and their descendants who were exiled or threatened and faced violence chasing them from their homes where many of the families had resided for over a thousand years within the Arab and Muslim worlds where the vast majority lost nearly everything from their monies in bank accounts, homes, businesses, stocks, bonds and family records including art collections and everything within their homes ending up in Israel starting from scratch, many glad to just be alive. Will the world now demand that these Arab and Muslim nations including Syria, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Egypt and others now take their Jewish refugees who were welcomed and incorporated into Israeli society and would now once again be thrown out of their homes and facing having absolutely no nation willing to receive these Jews, where do such Jews turn? Would President Obama be willing to take in the just over six million Israeli Jews and give them land and homes in the United States in order to guarantee their safety once their homeland of Israel becomes untenable with the entirety coming within range of rockets fired from the Judean highlands overlooking the heavily populated center of Israel. Once the Jews have been forced from the center, that leaves the most southern parts of the Negev and the very north of the Galilee which Hezballah has promised to take at will should they ever desire to do so. Where are the Jews of Europe supposed to find refuge within the next decade as their continued residences in Europe become untenable? Will the United States then be the succor that cares for the entirety of world Jewry? How long would the United States continue to provide such safe haven for the entirety of the Jewish People? The signs of anti-Semitism have already begun to show their ramping up with bared teeth and clenched fists. Some estimate that the United States will have largely become unsafe for Jews to practice their religion as such would identify them and leave them targeted as unwanted and a danger to the societal health and general welfare. President Obama has once again made mention of his challenge for Israel to unilaterally pull back completely within the pre Six Day War, 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, and then wait for the Palestinian Authority which presumably represents the Arabs in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to then feel that Israel is ready to make a deal and they will come willingly to negotiate the final treaty. Did President Obama really think this might work and result in the Arabs thanking the Jews and recognizing Israel as the Jewish State when every week, every day, perhaps hourly somebody representing the Arab Palestinians, Muslim Brotherhood in all its forms, Iranian, Iraqi, Egyptian, Saudi Arabian or somewhere in the Arab or Muslim world, maybe every minute or second there is a call to kill the Jews, death to Israel or something quite similar. The Hamas, Hezballah, Fatah and other charters all call for removing the Jews from every inch of Muslim lands and some go further demanding the death of Jews wherever they be found but President Obama demands that the Jews leave their safety and future up to Islamic generosity which will flow like milk and honey if only Israel gives Mahmoud Abbas the small patch of land he desires of Judea and Samaria with East Jerusalem as their capital and peace will blossom and Jews and Arab Muslims will pray together on the Temple Mount and sing Kumbaya together. There will not be a steel rain falling on Tel Aviv and the surrounding metropolises bringing down skyscrapers and numerous other buildings murdering hundreds of thousands before they can escape to the periphery until Hamas strikes out of Gaza, Hezballah sweeps in from Lebanon and the Golan Heights and the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS launch their assault from the Sinai, that will be the dance we would witness, well, for a short period unless a major miracle swept down from on high in Heaven. No thank you President Obama, we will see to our own problems and find our own solutions and leave the real problems such as ISIS and the rest of the terrorists including those answering to Tehran, you know, the terror masters who will have, if they do not already, nuclear weapons and the guided missiles on which to place them and send them to any point on Earth, yes, that will surely end well for all, won’t it. We elected our leader and he is perfectly capable of running things here as we desire and as you dislike working around Prime Minister Netanyahu, allow us to suffer his rule and the troubles and solutions which come with our elected choice. You just make speeches and leave the rest to those who have a grasp on reality, thank you.

One would have thought that the President would have considered the possibility that he might lose the game before initiating a game of political hardball with Prime Minister Netanyahu on Netanyahu’s home court. From all the hurtful reactions and threats that he be declared the winner and have his way or else one might also begin to question the sanity and ability to command the largest and most powerful military on the planet. For all intents and purposes, President Obama has truly lost his mind over losing an election in which he was personally present but not an actual candidate. Is it beyond the ability of the childlike man sitting in the most powerful position in the world to accept that the citizens of another nation might decide independent of his desires when electing their nation’s leader in times where that nation possibly faces some of the most daunting challenges to its existence in its ever so fragile history? If such a contingency was not considered as even possible, let alone probable, and thus comes as a total surprise and impossibility to comprehend or accept by President Obama, such that in reaction to this reality he now threatens Israel with annihilation, must be taken as evidence that the President may suffer from debilitating imbalances and is now a threat to not only Israel but the entire world going forward. The reaction to something that had to at some point have been contemplated, that playing hardball politics against a seasoned and proven adversary might not be decided as the President intended, was at best childish and unwarranted from such as the President of the United States. That despite sending the best of the best of the available political operatives, the ones who were to be credited with engineering President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, backed by millions of dollars and euros from the United States and European governments and still being unable to defeat Netanyahu had to be an option to the situation even if an unexpected option. That President Obama would take such a defeat so intimately personal is the surprise even beyond the failure of such an overbearing effort, but perhaps it was the overbearing nature of the effort which enabled its downfall. Simply described, me thinks the man doth protest too much.

 

What is necessary now is for somebody in the White House to fall on their sword but still attempt in doing so to explain to the President that sometimes in life one will eventually, no matter how seemingly impossible, actually come up against an opponent who will prevail even against one’s best of efforts. I realize that this may just be the first time that President Obama had somebody, or around four-million somebodies, go to the polls and refute his wise and sagely advice and instead vote for somebody whom President Obama finds beyond distasteful all the way to an adversarial pain in the derriere. But to then demand that despite the people of Israel in an open and free election choosing this person as their next Prime Minister that this person must now act as if the other side won and is dictating policies is beyond arrogant and just a bit pedantic, unwarranted and beneath the office which Obama holds. That President Obama apparently intends to punish Israel and use the full force and power of his office to do so is as frightening as it is unwarranted. The comments that the United States, meaning President Obama without consulting either the peoples or the Congress of the nation he presumably leads, is reassessing relations with Israel and intends to quite possibly force a solution upon Israel against the desires and will of the Israeli government and to do so unilaterally and by any and all means at the disposal of the President of the United States and his administration using international bodies and alliances which will knowingly place Israel and her population in dire peril of loss of life and nationhood is simply unacceptable use of the power of the President. Does anybody honestly place forcing Israel to completely surrender all points and be forced to not only surrender all points to an adversary whose stated intentions is the destruction of Israel and the murder of its predominant population and to do so unilaterally and without receiving any assurances or even any hint that such surrender of all points of negotiation produce an end to the violence against Israel from these Arab entities is more a declaration of war than a diplomatic seeking of a resolution. Does President Obama honestly intend to use force of arms to insist that Israel now comply with his standing threat to pull back unilaterally to the pre June 1967 war lines, also called the Green Line, without any guarantees or concessions from the Arab side by Mahmoud Abbas and then begin to negotiate the remaining issues such as dividing Jerusalem, final borders and other issues. This was what was presented to Netanyahu as a potential solution being considered by the White House. The unanswered question of what remains to be negotiated once Israel has ceded every inch of lands which are contested beyond Israel pulling up her roots and moving to Madagascar or wherever as the only remaining issue at such a point is how many Arab refugees will be shoved down Israel’s throat destroying any and every last vestige of the Jewish nature of Israel and one more time sending the Jewish people out into the Diaspora begging the permission of others to survive in a world which is closer to the next Holocaust than it is to accepting a Jewish state despite the actual, and hopefully not temporary, state for the Jewish people.

 

What is beyond belief is that President Obama honestly expects Prime Minister elect, he will not actually be the Prime Minister until he has been tasked with and successfully forming a coalition of minimally sixty-one Minister of the Knesset, to commit national suicide just so President Obama can claim another Nobel Peace Prize while claiming to have untied the Gordian Knot which has proven to be the Arab-Israeli peace. The problem with this solution is it resembles exactly the method used in legends by Alexander the Great when he cleaved the Gordian Knot in two claiming to have untied it though use of force was not considered a proper method and thus Alexander would eventually fail in his efforts to conquer all lands the knot represented. The use of force or threat of force will not be any more successful in untying the Gordian Knot of the modern world any more than Alexander’s skillful use of his strong sword succeeded in ancient times and will only make matters closer to all-out war. Israel will not go quietly into the gentleness that good night, but into her old age will she burn and rave at close of day and rage, rage against the dying of the light. Israel has waited her sons’ and daughters’ return to once again be blessed by this land and this land will remain our succor into eternity for as long as the sun does rise and the winds gently caress these lands will it remain our home to even our last dying effort will we hold to our rightful inheritance. The land is ours by right of promise from Heaven echoed rightfully by men of courage whose efforts and love of Zion engaged and brought forth the Balfour Declaration which was then universalized and made the law of the lands under the auspices of the League of Nations who adopted the Balfour Declaration word for precious word written into the San Remo Conference and ratified unanimously by the League of Nations and adopted by the United States by the Anglo-American Convention on Palestine in 1925 and confirmed in 1945 by Article 80 of the United Nations and has never been abrogated thus still is applicable under International Law. President Obama should be informed exactly what he is intending by his actions, that should he persist then his actions will be interpreted as a declaration of hostility and an attempt to abrogate standing International Law and also to have taken actions against a standing treaty which as such is the law of the land for the United States. The areas into which President Obama, in his obsessed mind, plans on treading is thin ice due to the roiling boil of the waters beneath. Should his plan include use of the United Nations Security Council, let him be warned that the United Nations is also bounded by the San Remo Conference and under its own Charter in Article 80 these promises were reaffirmed and ratified once again entering the conclusion of San Remo into the present framework of International Law. With such justification and the righteousness of our claims to this our lands will Israel stand against any efforts you may intend to sanction in your name. Remember that without Congressional actions the President of the United States may not declare war or deploy troops and doing so against treaties entered into by the United States and ratified by Congress that the President might once again find himself standing lonely on the battlefield of ideas without a clue. No, President Obama, you may not take your vengeance out on a nation just because they did not heed your presumably sagely advice and instead elected a leader who will serve Israel and Israeli interests the world be damned if that is what is required. And if this leader fails in that task, then we will elect a new leader more attuned to the needs of the day and sworn to protect that which is rightfully ours by treaty and, more importantly, by the will of Heaven. Would you like to see our deed? Well, it can be found in Genesis where Abraham was promised all the lands where it states in “Genesis 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Is that easy enough because if not there is more even to include the treaties of man which promise the same and more, but you already are knowledgeable of such things being the most able man on earth. After all, according to Patrick Gaspard, your first White House political director, in an interview with The New Yorker in November 2008, he quoted you having stated, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” With minimal extrapolation we can guess you exceed at all things mortal and border on the realm of the immortal, still, Israel will not be pushed. We are a stiff-necked people and even more-so when our own beloved Zion is up for presumptive discussions. Do not doubt that for a moment, simply do not transgress there and think real hard as to whether such threats and actions will be worth the price you will pay when all is said and done. Just go repair Syria, ISIS, Libya, Yemen and the other problems which cry so much louder for your attentions, but those would require heavy lifting and you see Israel as an easy target, the low hanging fruit but you are mistaken, very mistaken. One would have thought you might have taken the hint from the election, leave well enough as is and go tackle some pressing problem and leave us to deal with our situations. Bye-bye.
