Coming of Obama’s Parting Shot @ Israel


President Obama, contrary to many leftist American Jews’ commentaries and letters to editors, has a quite high animosity towards Israel which has been evident from his Cairo speech onward. We will grant that we have been experiencing a calmed and quieted President Obama concerning Israel over the summer. That changed this week on the slightest of provocations. Israel announced their intention to continue with a previously announced building of homes in the Jewish community of Shiloh. These homes are being built in order to provide the families whose homes in a nearby community are to be destroyed in response to President Obama and the State Department efforts. Apparently President Obama and the State department desired these Jews be forced from beyond the 1949 Armistice line, the Green Line, and within the indefensible pre June 1967 borders. By the way, the belief that the pre June 1967 borders, the Green Line, being indefensible is not just the Israeli government’s belief but has been the position of numerous American Presidents, Secretary of States, Defense Secretaries and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pentagon and other Generals. Should Israel ever be forced back within those previous borders the midsection of the country in and around Tel Aviv will be a mere nine miles. Yes, Israel would be pushed into a border with her midsection only nine miles wide which, just for reference, is less than half the width of Washington, D.C. Yet there are rumors that President Obama is planning a last ditch ambush against Israel to punish Netanyahu and Israel for not making his Nobel Peace Prize valid and of having been awarded with valid foresight. The editorials and other commentaries criticizing the Nobel Committee for getting carried away over the election of the first President of the United States of color in their rush to award President Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize had even some within the Nobel Central Committee suggesting that the award be negated in the view of the actual record of President Obama’s Administration. Perhaps this might be President Obama’s effort to validate his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on the backs of the safety and possible future of Israel and her people.

Some have questioned what might be the real harm behind such a United Nations passing of such a resolution. There have been almost countless United Nations General Assembly Resolution and official denunciations from the Human Rights Council against Israel and Israel has survived them all quite nicely even to include the 1975 Zionism as racism General Assembly Resolution which was finally repealed some sixteen years later. Would another meaningless and unenforceable United Nations General Assembly generated piece of paper actually have any deleterious effects on Israel and the day to day life of the average Israeli? Well, that depends on whether what President Obama is intending to pursue is simply a harmless General Assembly Resolution or whether he is intent on something with more weight and potentially even some teeth to the motion. Granted, much of what might be accomplished at the United Nations, especially in the General Assembly where anything anti-Israel has a sort of built in guarantee of passage, would not be all that threatening but that is not what we expect from what we have been capable of gathering and assume from our efforts.


President Obama has had the vision of himself as the man who ultimately ended the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict and he has been determined since his very first day in the White House when he made his very first official phone call from the Oval Office to Mahmoud Abbas even before calling any actual head of state. There have been unconfirmed rumors about the content of that phone call which White House official commentary has passed off as being cordial but nothing of substance nor should any importance be placed in the call without proof that there were any guarantees or promises of intent communicated. Such a disclaimer reeks of something worth concealing being the reality and we have suspected that President Obama, filled with the grand visions of himself as some great communicator and a special individual with privilege and promise greater than his predecessors did in fact give guarantees to Mahmoud Abbas that he would press forward and bring about the Palestinian State which the President himself believed in his heart was the right and proper thing that was on the right side of history, and we all know President Obama’s sense of importance on things he perceives to be on the right side of history, whether that be the real side or not being unimportant. President Obama has criticized Vladimir Putin for being on the wrong side of history expecting that such a criticism would force President Putin to alter his plans and prevent him from such dangerous actions which would fall on the wrong side of history such as invading the Ukraine or interfering in President Obama’s plans in Syria. This right side of history theme plays a large part in President Obama’s views of the world and he also appears to believe that he has this special ability to judge what is and is not on the right side of history, and a Palestinian State is on his perceived right side of history as has been the Iran Nuclear Deal while Prime Minister Netanyahu is on the wrong side of History.


It is our conjecture that President Obama is not planning on a General Assembly Resolution calling for the formation of a Palestinian State with the Green Line as its borders and that all Israeli towns and other structures and settlements are merely unhelpful and undesired as they are preventing the settlement of the conflict. This is mere restating of what he and others have claimed in ever increasing volume and irascibility. President Obama has not given up on settling the conflict in what he views as the correct and properly fair manner which is, of course, the right side of history. As he sees history, Israel was illegally formed and has stolen Palestinian Arab lands as the Jews are a people of ill will; evil, dark hearts who have aggressively strode to steal ever more Arab Palestinian homeland and probably never should have been given the land for their state in 1948 or ever and do not deserve a nation of their own as they are to be punished to roam the world living at the kindness of others whom they repay with spite and poisoning their host’s lands and are accursed by Heaven and are the spawn of Satan. Simply stated, he agreed with every sermon condemning the Jews he ever heard in the Reverend Wright’s Mosque disguised as a church and was a friend and believer with Edward Said, Louis Farrakhan and Rashid Ismail Khalidi. These men were among the fomenters of President Obama’s feud with Israel and desire to destroy Israel through whatever means he was able and he sees that opportunity slipping from his grasp and will take whatever measures he feels will be effective in setting in motion the eventual destruction of Israel and by doing so rid the world of the Jew.


So what is it we fear that President Obama will be pursuing and at what point in his remaining weeks should his actions be expected. President Obama cannot act before the election and will remain mute while he will have others deny, deny, deny and deny any accusations no matter what evidence may be presented and will call on some of his “Jewish” friends to defend him such as the leaders of J-Street and friends from academia who share his distaste for Israel. Once the election has passed and the Christmas “Winter” break approaches and congress is ready to run for the hills, or from the Hill, he will arrange for a quiet, low key and unpublicized meeting of the Security Council where only those nations desired will be formally invited with the rest receiving the information of the meeting the night before. President Obama will then have presented a Resolution recognizing the State of Palestine with the Green Line as its borders and East Jerusalem as its Capital City. Where we believe he will actually go so far as to make the proposal a Chapter Seven Resolution which is enforceable by the use of military intervention if any side does not comply appropriately and within a reasonable period of time, he may still be persuaded to simply settle for a Chapter Six Resolution which is a strong and insistent demand which will be accepted by the vast majority of nations, does not allow for the use of military force to enforce the resolution, just economic and other methods including removing embassies and ambassadors, economic sanctions, diplomatic pressures and anything else as long as it remains short of military intervention. The reason he might not call for a Chapter Seven is should Donald Trump have won the election he knows that there would be little if any chance that his resolution no matter its wording would be enforced by the United States which pretty much means it would not be enforced. But should Hillary have won the election, President Obama would be free to go for all the marbles knowing that at worst a President Hillary Clinton would do little if anything to prevent military enforcement and would pretend her hands were tied and implement heavy political and economic pressures including an end to all aid to Israel and perhaps arming Arab forces and provide them with protective air support in forcing Israel to comply with President Obama’s final efforts. This could be done even against the will of Congress providing the efforts did not go beyond the Presidential prerogative for use of force. Going further could bring on charges of impeachment but should there be sufficient Democrat membership in congress, President Hillary Clinton could even ignore all limitations knowing she was safe from being fully impeached by both houses such that even if she were charged she would not be convicted.


As far as what could prevent President Obama from taking such actions, the answer is unfortunately, “Nothing.” Should he decide that such would establish for him his rightful place in history, on the right side of history as he sees it, then he will likely do as he sees fit. The minimum would be a simple General Assembly Resolution which would be next to meaningless but still fulfill his promises to see to the recognition of statehood for the Palestinians even despite such an action having no teeth. Such an effort would take little extra action as such a proposed Resolution, as stated before, would breeze through the General Assembly and could be accomplished even if he waited until after the New Year as he has the first three weeks before the inauguration to do as he feels proper and Congress does not return until the week of the inauguration and does not convene until after the inauguration. Anything done in January would be performed without any interference from Congress or ratification from Congress, of course. Congress is unlikely to approve of whatever moves President Obama chooses but that would have little effect on the General Assembly as they have often thumbed their noses at the United States Congress and also the President when it suited their mood of the moment. Any Security Council Resolution would eventually require the confirmation as if a treaty by Congress which would present problems for the United States supporting the action of the American President, even if a ‘lame duck’ in his final moments. Should the Resolution be a Chapter Seven Security Council Resolution then it would most definitively require Congressional ratification just as if it were a treaty, something the Senate would be unlikely to approve. As for what effect that would have on the United Nations Security Council actions is a wholly different kettle of fish. Finally, there is also the possibility that the Security Council Resolution could be introduced by a nation other than the United States and in order to avoid any fallout President Obama could simply have the United States abstain and not work against the resolution knowing that by doing such he would be granting the effort a tacit approval which would influence the other permanent members of the Security Council to at worst also abstain thus allowing it to very probably pass as some of the other members would still support such a measure. There is one other possibility, that of one of the other permanent members using their veto thus ending the resolution and if it were a Chapter Seven Resolution we are willing to bet that is exactly what would be the case. The nations most likely to use their veto might surprise many but we would expect either China or Russia to be the veto wielding savior. So, imagine an American President attempting to use the Security Council of the United Nations to have the world force Israel to surrender all lands gained in the 1967 Six Day War and retreat behind the Green Line and the Russians or the Chinese vetoing the Resolution foiling the efforts of the President of the United States. That would be the ultimate embarrassment and there could be no more fitting manner in which to provide President Obama with the award of being consistently on the wrong side of history in his entire eight years as President.


As far as counting on anything to counter any actions intended by President Obama as he got on average three-quarters of the Jewish vote in his two elections if not higher. About the only Jews who can be definitively counted upon to raise the roof are the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) who will be left talking while the phone has been secured under a cushion and the aide has left the room. There is nothing that the American Jews would even be willing to do as there will be at least as high a percentage voting for Hillary Clinton as voted for President Obama and most of the rest are represented by the ZOA or are Orthodox Jews likely residing in the New York greater metropolitan area and thus their votes even ifnot for Hillary will make little if any difference unless the all but unthinkable happens and New York State becomes a close race and Trump actually has even the slightest of hopes. That is unlikely but we can hope.


So what can be done and is it possible? What can be done is risk it all and have Prime Minister Netanyahu call the American Amabassador to his office, have the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations call the American Ambassador to his office, have the Israeli Ambaddador to the United States call the Secretary of State for an urgent meeting, and if refused, then leave a letter at the White House addressed to the President and hand delivered all with a single message. Should President Obama use the Security Council for any resolution establishing a Palestinian State or declaring the 1949 Armistice Lines as a recognized border, Israel will take action. These lines are also called the Green Line, the one President Obama misnames as the 1967 lines, as they were not established in 1967 but were corrected in 1967. The action Israel would take should the United States seek official recognition of such as a border by the Security Council, would be to establish the Jordan River as the border as it is legally under all international laws including at least one treaty ratified by the United States when stating and signing on to agreements that the San Remo Conference was a valid document and the Treaty of Sèvres and all others based on San Remo are valid in signifying the borders for the Jewish State.


This establishment of the proper and legal borders will not permit a single Palestinian to become a citizen immediately and will establish the officers, leaders and security force officers and all of the special forces as personna non grata in Israel and provide them with two weeks to find new living arrangements. All of the Palestinian Security Forces will have forty eight hours to turn in their weapons and each will be reviewed and may potentially be hired for the new police force under Israeli police command. Some may even be granted their former rank and even placed in command positions if they check to have no connections to terrorist entities past or present. Finally, the citizens of the Palestinian Authority will be permitted to remain and will continue to have their businesses, their homes, their jobs if they work for an Israeli owned company, and some employees if requested by companies which relocated within Israel due to the BDS boycotts may be granted work entry permits to return to their former positions should the company so request. After a year there will be decision made as to whether and the procedure that interested Arabs formerly under the Palestinian Authority government will be permitted to start the procedures for Israeli citizenship. Within six months of that date there will be free and open election in the former areas of the Palestinian Authority under Israeli supervision. Former Palestinian Authority citizens will be granted local voting rights in their areas but should they move they will be required to seek Israeli citizenship once a procedure is established before being granted the vote. As the Palestinian Authority citizens will initially be considered alien residents, they will not have rights to vote in Israeli general elections as that will remain reserved for Israeli citizens, including any of the Palestinian Authority Arabs who gain such citizenship. Israel will immediately take over the police and security functions and all radio and television and cable networked shows and start a review to see if they meet with Israeli broadcast regulations and laws before being permitted back on the air. Other problems will be handled as they present themselves and any terrorist activity will be punished by immediate repatriation to their country of origin or any nation they might choose who will accept them even to include the United States.


An example might be the Palestinian Authority Registrar for the National Palestinian Committee for Education, Culture and Science who was not only not from the Israeli area but his name tells his nationality as he is from Sudan as the rest of Murad Al-Sudani clan originated. He is the Secretary General as listed on their official site here about half way down the page. He is far from the only officer or person of importance as most of the higher ranking persons, Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas amongst them, are of foreign origins, another of the dirty little secrets which are constantly denied and all proof ignored by the rest of the world as their desired future lies with an Arab extinguishing of Israel. That alone should have been enough reason for the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their gangs be removed and law and order replace the kleptocrats stealing the people blind and sent packing giving peace and real opportunity returned to the decent people of the West Bank and Gaza, and there are a number of decent people who are mostly scared to death and must watch their every utterrance. They deserve better and a fair opportunity for a productive life.

Generally the Generals Create Great Problems


In a recent article titled Israel’s demographic suicide? by the ever readable and insightful Caroline B. Glick we were given views of a recent meeting between the new Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman and the General Staff of the IDF. From what we understood, Minister Lieberman came into the meeting with a rightful, honest and workable solution to numerous problems mostly caused by the presence of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its insidious effects over too large an area and over too many institutions all of which they brought to holy jihad against Jews and Israel. During the meeting and facing an allied and unified front or Perfumed Princes, generals as known to the public, he was convinced that the best approach to the coming elections this fall in the local elections throughout the PA where Hamas is expected to take control over many, if not a predominant number, of the local government thus preventing and PA security forces from presumably fighting terrorist enterprise would be best averted by peremptorily ceding complete planning and zoning authority in Area C to the PA. Our position is the surrendering Area C will fail in every conceivable way possible. But the Perfumed Princes appear to have converted Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to their side of the argument where the military basically gifts the PA with complete control over the lands in Area C which will lead to the removal of all IDF forces replacing them with PA Security Forces and the settlements will immediately become untenable and the hundreds of thousands of Jews and other Israelis residing in these cities, towns and frontier settlements will be forced to retreat behind the Green Line and holding any claim on East Jerusalem will become all but untenable. Basically, the Perfumed Princes idea is to repeat Gaza except this time with the entirety of Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and the entirety of the Old City to the PA who once the IDF and other Israeli assets have retreated will lose all the lands to Hamas who are far more motivated than the PA forces, many of which are more loyal to Hamas and Islamic Jihad as well as the Islamic State than they are to Mahmoud Abbas, Fatah and the PA. Such a plan worked so wondrously in Gaza that the Perfumed Princes believe that doubling down with the safety of Tel Aviv is the best course of action. The best course of action is and has always been the settlement of all the lands given by Hashem and to above our greatest joy to place Yerushalayim, the city conquered by David and beautified by Solomon which includes Tower of David in Yerushalayim.


Tower of David in Yerushalayim

Tower of David in Yerushalayim


The news of this reached us soon after we had responded to a challenge to put forth a plan which would benefit Israel in dealing with the PA which we presented in our article As Long as They All Hate where we presented basically the opposite of the plan presented by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) and assorted other IDF commanders. Their basic premise is that should Israel respond to the threat, that Hamas will win numerous townships and potentially even Ramallah, which would be the ultimate loss for the PA and be the end of Mahmoud Abbas as their leader; that by turning over the remainder of Judea and Samaria and deserting any responsibility for those residing already in Area to PA rule, whatever that may mean after the fall elections, and this will prevent Hamas from winning local elections across the currently PA controlled areas. Sure, surrendering all control over what Jordan renamed the West Bank and is actually a good part of Judea and Samaria simply because of a threat that Hamas might take control of areas now held by the PA will invigorate the PA and not have any similar effect on the Hamas leadership which is obviously what scared the IDF COGAT commanders. Are we the only ones who see a grievous error in their logic? If anything, such a move should guarantee Hamas taking control with even less opposition of Judea and Samaria and raining rockets supplied by Iran through Jordan, even if Iran must eliminate Jordanian King Hussein and the entirety of the Jordanian military, assuming they do not simply change sides in the interest of continued breathing and potentially positions in the coming Iranian puppet state.


The Perfumed Princes could not have presented a more backwards and illogical plan had that been their intent. The actual problem is that these Generals are tired of actually performing their duty and they realize that their power does not stem from protecting Jews and Israelis in Judea and Samaria but in deadly threats making the continuation of the state of Israel dependent on them. The real problem is actually the same problem as Israel faces in their legal society where judgeships above the lowest level is controlled either directly or indirectly, the higher the court the more directly, by the Supreme Court, the Attorney General, the head of the Lawyers’ Guild and a small and overwhelmed few members of the elected governance, that being the Knesset. Such a panel is so far left as it could only be equaled by the average garden party held by the effete elite of Tel Aviv and the COGAT Command and most other commands outside of combat arms are also Perfumed Princes for similar reasons. These leftist control the levers of choosing their replacements and refuse to permit any Zionist, and especially religious Zionist, to ever enter their ranks even if it requires setting up high ranking Zionist religious officers for a situation where proper actions can bring charges of undue force and doing nothing brings charges of dereliction of Duty. Thus the High Command of the IDF, the Supreme Court, the justice system, the ranking legal and other administrative commanders are all Tel Aviv leftist anti-Zionists who are determined to make Israel a binational state where Jews become a minority as the leftist socialist anti-nationalist post-Zionists are haters of Judaism and Judeo-Christian morality and are willing to make Israel into an Islamist run nation in the belief that they can take control of such a governance and forge their communist wonderland free of nationalism and religious influences. Simply stated, these lunatics are willing to destroy Israel, hand it to the Muslims, all in an attempt to forge their socialist dreams and they do not figure in their formulae that they will be amongst the first ones beheaded under any Islamist governance. This disease exists through much of Europe and is taking hold in the United States where President Barack Obama was the initial introductory Presidency and Hillary Clinton will be the final step should she be elected, but the Americans are as blind in many leftist circles as are these Israeli leftist socialist communists.


Israel has one viable future which cannot and will never be realized as long as we suffer these fools who hate Zionism and hate Judaism and are willing to bow before Ba’al and sacrifice everybody else’s first born son if that is what it takes to destroy the Jewishness and Zionist enterprises within Israel. They, like their Western counterparts, hate Judeo-Christian ethics and nationalism to such an extent that they are willing to blindly accept anything which is also against such viable and moral leadership. They are incapable of seeing past their red hot hatred of Judaism and Zionism that sacrificing all of Israel to the observers of Allah and betraying Hashem and all that comes from his love and rules for a moral and good life where all are cared for by the deeds of others. They do not see that charity is amongst the central pillars of Judaism and believe that nobody would sacrifice a single shekel of their monies to help the needy and only through the force of government can the poor be cared for. They believe this as they are wanting to ever ‘waste’ a Shekel of their monies willingly and believe all are as dead hearted as they. They judge others by their own selfishness and are blind to the generosity of others whom they hold in contempt quite likely because they do see these others are better persons than they and thus must be destroyed to make a perfect government controlled system which does not depend on the generosity of others but on the power of the all-powerful state.


Further, these Generals, Perfumed Princes, realize that by surrendering Area C they will no longer be the ones to blame should there come terrorism from these areas as they will no longer govern them. They tire of governing Area C and protecting those Jews, who are mostly religious, Zionist or both as these are the very Jews and Israelis they hold in contempt. They would rather allow the Arab Muslims behead and murder every last Israeli and Jew currently under their mandate for protection. They have already performed so well at this protection that the two items which have kept these Israelis safe have been the outstanding performance of the troops charged with such protection who take their positions of protecting the innocent seriously, and the security forces each community has appointed or empowered volunteers who manage the security including electronic surveillance and boots on the ground day and night throughout the week and even on the Sabbath as life is precious in Judaism and every life is worth saving and assisting such that it can live. Many of these elitists have completely lost track of these basic terms and instead think only of the power of the state and not the empowerment of the individual. These leaders require a complete house cleaning and replacing with those in whom the safety and future of Israel and the Jews can be trusted with complete faith that they will take such charge seriously.


The one obvious failure are the General Staff and their complete infiltration or possibly permanent ability to replace their retiring officers solely with the officers from the legal division or from amongst their own known circle, the tea, brie and fondue party gang as we like to call them. The time has come to change a few things even beyond the heads at the top. The first thing is the legal busy beavers should be required to spend their initial training and a one year service in an infantry company. This should be their being farmed out randomly amongst infantry companies as privates such that they understand the life of the rank and file soldier. They should also be charged with achieving a certain rank before being commissioned as a lawyer and officer in the IDF and those unable to cope with such service should be barred from the legal divisions. The IDF deserves officers who will be making life and death decisions to fully understand the position and dangers the average soldier faces to achieve the position where they may be deciding whether they get to take the shot or stand down. Currently the order to stand down is the failsafe and preferred command decision unless every last requirement has been verified, checked, rechecked and further checked to see if the position has held its ground and still has the shot available after fifteen-twenty minutes of lunacy by command before allowing the infantry or other assets to take the shot.


Perhaps we need a basic and simple pair of examples of situations which will clarify. Let us assume one is a fighter pilot carrying ordinance, bombs for the less aware of the language, and he is approaching the target and he does not see any civilians blocking his approach and now requires clearance from the legal beagles before he can release his ordinance. Now the lawyers order a second aircraft, a reconnaissance drone or piloted aircraft to fly to the locations which can take up to five or ten minutes while the pilot with the ordinance has been circling his target in danger of being shot upon. During this time the target inside the building has left, taken shelter in a special area of the basement or possibly called for women and children to be brought to the rooftop knowing that a single civilian is a sufficient screen which will prevent most bombings from being executed and any doubt results in the initial pilot landing with ordinance still attached, an unadvised and very dangerous task as the shock of landing can activate the ordinance and with another simple bump detonate the ordinance if it was set for immediate blast after drop. Even if the target of the bomb was the third floor of a seven story building where the ordinance is set to punch through the five levels which would mean that the ordinance would count from the rooftop as the first punch placing it in the seventh floor, then another to the sixth and another to the fifth and another to the fourth and another to the third with a tenth of a second delay and detonation sufficient to kill all on the third floor or just those in a central room and still leave the building though structurally compromised, remaining standing. Even such ordinance is thought to take out the roof by the lawyers making the drop/no drop decision. The bombs today are so completely different than in previous wars fought that many people are unfamiliar or completely ignorant of the special situational conditions for which rounds can be optimized.


IDF Crest Insignia


An even more dire and dangerous situation would present itself when a sniper has spent two or three days sneaking into his optimum firing position and has the subject in his sights and now he waits for his number two to give him the signal to fire. All parameters are met but what if he gets an officer who insists on covering his position and orders a drone to reconnoiter the area before approving the shoot. This might lead the target to take cover or they could depart or return inside taking away the opportunity while waiting for approval. Many times a sniper is not within secured areas and is operating within enemy controlled territories and even making radio contact can create a dangerous situation for the sniper and his spotter. Many of the officers whose approval is required before taking a shot have never actually qualified with a weapon or if they have it was with a sidearm and not the variety of weapons used by most combat infantry or sniper or other combat individuals. This situation is rather dangerous for the troops and other individuals who must attain clearance before executing their final command to engage. In any situation an order to refrain from engagement makes the position more dangerous and even could lead to capture or death. These are things these soldiers, and they are presumed to be soldiers and not lawyers, have most often never been familiarized with and thus are making their decision considering a perfect scenario with a perfect and clean target and almost no situation in combat or flying support missions ever present a clean target and the wait time might even make a clean target unfit for execution as the situation changed while awaiting approvals. This is why the main part of any decision to engage needs to be left to the troops in the field or aircraft and the IDF depend on their morality and training, two things Israeli men and women in uniform are not just amongst the best but are the standard which other armed services in the Western developed world know they could not match the IDF and its morality in combat and others agree in even stronger language.


The conclusion we draw is obvious, Israel requires some basic appointment channels to be altered. We will not go into how the actual civilian legal divisions, the courts, particularly the Supreme Court and Attorney General, are chosen and concentrate on the command positions at the top of the IDF. The very first item is the appointment of IDF commanders must not be subjected to trial by newspapers, television and radio news, political talk shows or even approval by the Supreme Court. Appointment of the commander of the IDF must be made in order to choose the man most capable of commanding the defense and other military services as demanded by or commanded by the civilian government. They must be capable of performing the necessary oversight and give the orders which will complete any mission the IDF will be assigned and do so with a minimal loss of life for both the IDF and innocent civilians as understood to be defined by international law. The commander must be somebody the troops will respect and look up to. The IDF Commanding General does not need be acceptable to the Supreme Court, the tea and brie bridge club from Tel Aviv or other members of the moneyed elite, and the upper class who hold monetary aloof positions on all the correct social lists and definitely not be made to suffer the approval of Haaretz or other news outlet. They are a combat leader and being polite is not a required job performance though it would be a nice addition after they are chosen for their military command knowledge. The supporting General Staff need be chosen in like manner and should be fully capable of commanding a war for the national survival of the Israeli state with thirty seconds warning before launching troops ready and standing on alert. They need know the call-up procedures and who is the person to set that in motion as well as their subsequent commander and have the remaining list of the rest of that command at ready and known position for quick reference. The entirety of command should be stripped down and chosen solely for their love of country and ability to move into combat at a moment’s notice. There are no requirements for garden parties and the other frills such as performance at charity balls or other social ills. Such commanders should be religious, Zionist or both with the Zionism being a main requirement as they are best suited for trust to be centered within and being religious grants one deeper insight to the solutions required though one still performs their duty at the behest and under the set goals and limitations directed by the civilian governance. Such generals need understand that any command received is meant to be executed immediately if not sooner unless directed otherwise. This will necessitate a reassessment of the current General Staff and their replacement, as it has been found that those currently serving are lacking in any manner of intestinal fortitude or desire to serve the nation of Israel and its founding Zionist spirit. As goes the General Staff goes the military. If the commanders are soft and indecisive or lack in love of country, then the troops will reflect the same. This is why the General Staff need be religious and Zionist with love of Torah, love of Hashem, love of Israel, and lastly most obedient of the commands to settle the lands that Hashem has gifted to us to care for as these are the lands of Hashem. This need be the central reason for the IDF which is included in the motto, “Honor, Torah, Israel, People, Zion and Yerushalayim.”

As Long as They All Hate


We have always held that if you are going to be denounced, sanctioned, held as a diabolical daemon in the United Nations General Assembly, receive threats from the European Union and member states and bludgeoned with words of war from the Arab world and generally made a pariah; then you may as well do whatever serves your needs and to hell with everyone else. We have seen the guaranteed death of the two state solution in any number of ways. The Palestinian education, or should we say indoctrination, system has set their belief structure that the only peaceful solution left to them is the complete destruction of Israel and the death of every Jew. Just for clarification, they teach the death of every Jew, not Israeli and not just Israeli Jews but all Jews everywhere which is possible only should they conquer the world. The PLO Charter has fairly similar wordings, goals and aims as does the Hamas Charter which also calls for their conquest of the world. People laugh when they are told these things and claim that nobody is so delusional as to believe they are going to conquer the world, that’s just plain crazy. Well, yes, it is crazy but that does not mean they do not believe they will actually conquer the world. It does not matter if the leaders know that world conquest is a pipe dream, as long as the people are sold on that idea, they will fight until their dying day, which their fighting may advance by years through another senseless death in a war that cannot be won and also will not end until totally and utterly defeated. Keep in mind that the Islamic State also expects to conquer the world, Iran’s leadership sells the people on their conquering the world; the Imams in Saudi Arabia believe they will conquer the world under Wahhabism; the Imams teaching at Al-Azhar University in Cairo (pictured below), Egypt, the leading center for Islamic knowledge in the world, also sells their Imams on the fact that Islam is destined to conquer the world and it will be their version of Sunni Islam which will accomplish this; and the Ottoman Turks also set out to conquer the world and succeeded in conquering the Islamic world, or at least a good part of it. In Islam, world conquest is one of the main tenets after the Five Pillars of Islam which are Shahadah which means belief that there is only one god, Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger; Salah which means prayers are to be given Allah five times a day; Zakat which means giving alms, charity, of 2.5% of income; Hajj which is making the pilgrimage to the house of Allah in Mecca at least once during your life; and Fasting which is the fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramadan. So, why not just add another pillar and admit that Islam demands that Muslims not rest until the entire world has fallen before them and all have either converted or been put to the sword. The Jizya tax for unbelievers to pay as protection under Islam is a temporary fix which in time is presumed to pass and the other two alternatives are to be implemented, convert or die. So, what does one do knowing that their problem with the Arab Palestinians can only be resolved to their satisfaction with your death and the conquest of your country by whatever means are necessary and that no rest can be afforded Israel as the land has been declared a Waqf which means that “every grain of sand is a holy piece of Islam” according to the definition of Waqf being a religious endowment of an area, in this case all of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea according to the Palestinian leadership.

So, the enemy refuses any compromise and is willing, as we have already witnessed, to send all ages of youth starting with ten year old children armed with knives who are sworn to jihad and will attack as long as they have life left in them even if mortally wounded they will still attempt to kill whomever comes close including aid personnel who are attempting to treat their wounds. That is the level of fanaticism faced currently in Israel and coming rapidly to Europe and possibly beyond into the United States, Canada and anywhere else taking in the “Syrian refugees” who have numbers of males between the ages of fourteen and forty and who are unaccompanied by a wife, girlfriend or children. These are not refugees people, this is a fighting force, an advance column which will be learned in quick order, ask the French as they are entering the first phase of the Islamic war for the conquest of France. Israel has been dealing with this war from day one when on May 15, 1948, when Israel was first declared a nation with her borders defined as being from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, sounds familiar doesn’t it, and six nations’ armies invaded from every border with the genocidal intent of slaughtering every Jew and taking their wealth and possibly enslaving many of the women to be used to propagate more Muslim children. They promised wealth, herds of sheep, free land and houses, all the belongings of the Jew and all other spoils of war as defined in the Quran, which includes the enslavement of their defeated opponents women and the taking of children too young to be educated and have a strong attachment to any religion and might make good Muslims after being indoctrinated. That definition of the rewards for jihad against Israel and the Jews has not changed and if you die while performing jihad you go instantly to Islamic heaven where there are lush fields of grass, waterfalls, rivers, wines, and seventy-two permanent virgins who regain their virginity after you take them such that they are always fresh young, virgin, raven haired and beautiful. You cannot make this stuff up, well, apparently you can but your name would need to be Muhammad as such is beyond our imagination. Our imagination is so poor that we can only find one answer to this situation and it will not make even many of the Israeli politicians happy as they are mired in a false promise which was made at Oslo in the accursed Oslo Accords. There was the invention of two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. There was only one problem with that agreement, one side lied. The actions of Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian indoctrinated generations since 1993 and even before have proven that the Arab Palestinians will not accept two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security, they want it all and they want it now or whenever as long as it takes to force the Jews from their lands or murder them where they stand and take the lands which Oslo defined as to be shared; they have decided they do not wish to share or play well with others. This is the reality from which Israel has to decide what she wishes to do.


So, what are the choices and how can we rate them for viability? Well, we can continue to offer new and slightly different proposals for establishing the two state solution as we have been doing since 1993 in September. It was a sunny Monday afternoon on the White House Lawns in Washington D.C., the thirteenth of September to be exact, and the negotiations have continued ever since. Since that time the Israelis have been systematically driven back one concession at a time while the Palestinians refused to even ratify their acceptance of the Oslo Accords, everybody has simply assumed their accepting it formally and never checked, or cared to check. Their one necessary concession was to change their Charter so it would no longer call for the destruction of Israel and they were only pressed once where the United States State Department joined a session of the Palestinian Parliament to witness their vote to change the Charter and they took a vote and passed a measure calling for a committee to be appointed to assess a proper and acceptable alteration to comply with the agreement to change the Charter. They never appointed the committee and never changed a word of their Charter which remains calling for the complete destruction of Israel. Since then Israel had gone from the original plan where Israel retained Area C, the Arab Palestinians retained Area A and the sides were to negotiate where to divide Area B to now where there are demands for Israel to return to the borders from before the 1967 Six Day War and surrender the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem which has numerous Jewish holy sites and all of Area C which also holds valuable and precious Jewish holy sites and historic locations and there have been hints that Israel should also surrender a path to Gaza straight across the midlands of Israel cutting the Jewish State into halves and even calls for surrender of much of the Galilee and most of the Negev Desert. The aim is obvious, make Israel completely indefensible and then destroy it in quick order after every inch which could be negotiated had been taken through combination of threats and twisting world opinion, and that world opinion had been very generous to the Arab Palestinians as they are willing to sacrifice all of Israel as long as doing so comes with a promise to end all Islamic violence in the Western world and they are willing to take their word for that. The catch is they need Israel to agree and that point has yet to be reached, but give the world and the masters at giving concessions, also called the Knesset, time and we might get there. The Knesset actually approved the gifting of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority who within a short period lost it to Hamas who has since used it as a launching area of rockets into civilian areas of Israel and for tunneling into Israel with the intent of accomplishing raids resulting in kidnapped IDF or civilian Israelis. That was how the Gilad Shalit abduction and ransom was conducted. The world also seems to be fixated on Israel controlling their border with Hamas and Gaza despite tons of goods, food, medicine and other non-military goods transferred through the operative crossing daily where any government or NGO can have non-military goods transferred to Gaza simply by shipping their goods through the Ashdod, Israel port as Israel has legitimate need to assure that no military use goods are given over to Hamas, a recognized internationally as a terror origination. What is curious is these same nations have no problem with the complete closure of Gaza’s border with Egypt where nothing passes through in either direction legally for months and even years at a time. Israel has treated Gazans in Israeli hospitals including Hamas leader Haniyeh’s daughter treated in Israel. At another time, if you trust Israeli new reports, Hamas leader Haniyeh’s mother-in-law was also treated in an Israeli hospital. And according to Reuters in their last line almost as an excuse our mention of this but, one of Haniyeh’s granddaughters was treated in an Israeli hospital. But Israel is accused of committing genocide in Gaza. They keep using that word and I do not think it means what they think it means.


So, we have an intransigent enemy which will only be satisfied when they are walking on our graves as they would have long ago been destroyed as who needs a Jewish cemetery in the middle of an Arab Muslim Palestinian entity, which also happens to be dysfunctional and a failed entity incapable of supporting itself and completely dependent on foreign funding just to feed its people. And we have Israel, the only Jewish State in a sea of Arab and Muslim states despite the Arab Palestinian argument that there are no Muslim nations, which is true because their claim is there is not one such nation and they are correct, there are twenty-one Arab Muslim States and they desire to be the twenty-second. The world is willing to grant the Arabs Palestinians their demands as long as these demands are couched in polite terms and do not completely eradicate Israel, at least this is quite true in the United Nations General Assembly but thus far has not survived and passed in the Security Council where a veto threat always seems to succeed in preventing such a measure of passing and has even prevented such from being presented as their voting it down would set a bad precedent, or at least that has been the reason given by the Arab Palestinian leadership. Recent developments have shown that the veto protection has become something which some have decided can be used as a bludgeon to force Israeli leadership to toe a line drawn outside of Israel. This threat has been intimated but has yet to actually been publicly deployed though the possibility that it was threatened in private discussions between high officials in both nations has been breached as having been a possibility in many an editorial. Still, the fact that one of the candidates for the highest office did spend close to or possible more than a half hour berating the Prime Minister of Israel because he had the audacity to present the Israeli position regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 (the permanent members of the Security Council which are the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain and France and the plus one was Germany and, of course, Iran) which are claimed to permit Iran to continue parts of their nuclear research and increasingly over a decade be permitted greater range of research and development with their potentially producing nuclear weapon as soon as eight years according to some and definitively after the decade when all restrictions would end (the entire deal can be read here in a translation of the Russian copy into English and reformatted for easier reading). Another little tip of something not well known, Iran had been arming Hamas in Gaza and has also been trying to find inroads to arm and aid thus bringing into their influence the Palestinian Authority and the PLO.


So, what can be done about this untenable situation? How about a one state solution and the Arab Palestinians will be permitted to vote in their own local elections within Areas A and B while both Palestinians and Israelis will be permitted to reside in Area C but Arab Palestinians will not have voting rights as they will be considered resident aliens within Israel. Israel gets what was promised as their minimum border according to the original intents and promises under the Oslo Accords, as that at the very least should be recognized and granted. By the way, nobody other than Israel gets a vote on that decision. Arab Palestinians will have free travel throughout Israel with checkpoints initially and as the violence ends, the checkpoints will correspondingly end. Any Arab Palestinian desiring to take advantage of an opportunity to reside outside of Israeli influences can take a buyout offer which will include a generous price for their assets such as property, business and other recognized assets plus a flight to a neutral nation and then the flight to their chosen destination, they will need proof their destination will accept them, and an additional sum as determined as a resettlement assistance. Such an offer will be available for a set period, perhaps one year, and afterwards the remaining Arab Palestinians will be considered to be resident aliens with semiautonomous rights in Areas A and B. Any act of terrorism such as attacking people with no cause other than jihad or other terrorist acts will result in deportation either immediately or after serving any prison sentence handed down by the courts. Eventually, it may become possible to allow Arab Palestinians to apply for Israeli citizenship, but that will take time and the terrorist violence will need to have ceased before such can even be considered. The Arab Palestinians will retain the right to own property and to practice their religion freely. Initially the Madrassas will be monitored to assure they are not teaching jihad or Muslim supremacy doctrines and those crossing these lines will be warned once and if their transgressing the set limits continues they will be closed. The UNRWA schools and other public education will come under Israeli control and will retain any Arab Palestinian teachers and staff but will now teach an approved version of the Israeli basic education, especially when it comes to history, the sciences and Hebrew will be a required course so that when the time arrives that incorporating them if they choose into Israeli society as full citizens they will speak Hebrew which is an aim of the education system in Israel as well as the absorption programs for Jews making Aliyah. The Arab Palestinian leadership, especially the upper levels of Fatah and the PLO will necessarily be deported as there is no path which appears possible to incorporate them peaceably into this solution. They will not be granted any remuneration as they have stolen sufficient monies over the years to cover any relocation they choose even if it be a mansion along the Riviera. This may not be a perfect plan but what exists now is far worse for both the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel cannot be expected to continue this charade where their citizens are but targets which the Arab Palestinian school system teaches do not deserve to live and are a mortal enemy and are going to murder the Arab Palestinians unless they kill all the Israelis first. That has to end as it has ruined the lives of two generations of Arab Palestinians by filling them with hatred and nothing else to base their future upon. They are taught that as long as Israel exists their lives will be worthless and the Jews have stolen all opportunities and the only path to retrieve opportunity is to destroy Israel. That is not an acceptable situation and there is but one way to resolve that, end the Arab occupation and indoctrination on what is legally under all international laws Israeli soil. Publish the Levy Report and act on it as this situation is untenable for all involved and is destroying the Arab Palestinians’ futures by selling them destruction as their only option.
