Is This Radical Israel?

 

You travel around the universe, especially the universities and other higher education centers, leftist groups, European Human Rights NGOs registered as Israeli, left political parties throughout Europe and even peoples in parts of Asia, Africa and planets beyond where they have never met, seen or known anyone who has known a Jew and you will find anti-Semites often disguising their hatreds as simple disagreements or objections with the Israeli acts. These are where you will hear the horror stories about the IDF destroying schools, Mosques, hospitals, refugee centers and other places where there were only civilians, murdering thousands of innocents. Such was the Jenin massacre where it was claimed at the peak of the accusation to have slaughtered over five-thousand innocent civilians. The United Nations report, after an extensive search, checking their findings and checking them twice, reviewing every angle they could attempting to validate the claims of a slaughter produced a small surprise. Their end report told of less than five hundred total dead and injured and almost every last death was a PLO fighter or IDF soldier and the majority of the civilian deaths resulted from booby-traps being detonated as soon as IDF soldiers walked into the houses to escort the family to safety, triggering the trap. The families, it was discovered, were warned by the PLO fighters that if they attempted to leave the house they would be shot immediately. This was just another example of using the civilians as bait or shields disregarding any value their lives meant to the PLO which was apparently less value than the IDF placed value on these civilian lives.

 

Wolff Heintschel von Heinegg, a military law expert at European University Viadrina in Frankfurt, Germany wrote about his results in his researching the complaint that the IDF “is setting an unreasonable precedent for other democratic countries of the world who may also be fighting in asymmetric wars against brutal non-state actors who abuse these laws.” Below are three videos of reports made before the United Nations during one of their investigations into the Gaza conflict seeking and eventually authoring a scathing report blaming Israel of disproportional use of force. During reporters coverage of the Gaza War with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist groups, the reporters often appeared to be demanding to know why there were so few Israelis, or as one slipped and asked, so few Jews being killed.

 

 

 

 

But what can a couple of experts possibly know or even understand of the IDF and their proven disproportional use of force where they have always struck back with excessive force. The reporters reporting out of Gaza have seen the areas struck by Israel which were already cleansed of military equipment. The main hospital strike ended up being caused by one of four MLRS system rockets which had gone dreadfully wrong, but why admit their misfire when one can reasonably claim the damage was from an Israeli artillery shell intentionally targeting the hospital. Basically what we are attempting to point out that if one wishes to prove that Israeli IDF troops are well trained, moral, and very conscious as to the legal and moral limitations and demands on a soldier, that is not difficult. On the other hand, should one be attempting to prove the opposite, that too has plenty of allies who can be tracked at any United Nations hearing into a Gaza War or a confab or meeting. The truth as far as we have been capable of ascertaining has been that there are IDF soldiers who act improperly and fail to reach and even surpass all forms of expectations, especially human rights, protection of the innocent and protection of civilians in all manners and abilities. When these soldiers act improperly, they are charged with criminal neglect or worse, tried, and should they be found guilty, sentenced and sent to prison in a special section as a means of protecting their lives. When a soldier is charged with criminal use of force, the sad reality is Israeli leadership is so paranoid that as soon there is a single question about the use of deadly force, the soldier is charged before the investigation has completed; and in a recent case, even before the investigation was launched, he was arrested within hours of the incident in question. These are the examples of the presumed immoral Israeli Defense Force.

 

Then there are the charges which are plain and simple anti-Semitism as well as anti-Israel concerning special Israeli Defense Forces units which are dispatched to perform search and rescue as well as set up a field hospital often as good if not better than any hospital the nation might have had operating before the disaster. Most people have read about George Exantus from Haiti who danced for a living and lost a leg and was fitted with a special prosthetic which had him back dancing in no time (see below). He was just one of many life-saving, both professionally and literally, which became the best Israeli public relations world-wide. The Israelis were in the Philippines after a devastating typhoon and in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami which blew up one of the nuclear power plants causing enormous problems and recently Nepal after the Everest earthquake. Israel has also assisted over the years in Turkey, Iraq, and other predominantly Muslim nations around the globe. Here again there are those who claim that Israel only sends physicians and a full field hospital setup in order to steal organs, perfectly good organs including but not limited to eyes. Some have claimed these organs are used to assist injured Israelis in need of these body parts while the really fanciful have resurrected the anti-Semitic Golem myth which were conjured or built (see image under of video).

So, the evidence paints the Israeli military as being ethical and despite this being the result of United Nations investigations amongst others, that has not prevented Israel’s detractors from claiming the worst of all possible claims including, but not limited to, genocide, pedophilia, organ harvesting and other equally disgusting and distressing accusations. Israel has been questioned on her claim to being the homeland of the Jews, the descendants of the Hebrews who were led by Moses out of Mizraim (Hebrew for Egypt: מִצְרַיִם/מִצְרָיִם) and by Joshua when crossing the Jordan River. There are claims that special and important Jews worked with the Nazis to rid them of the lesser Jews before they would lead a new kinder, gentler Jew freed from the lesser genes which infected most of the Jews. There have been those who have claimed they will bring a second Holocaust on the Jews while claiming there never was a first Holocaust in Germany during World War II. There are those who denied the crematoria which was why upon visiting the first concentration camp, Commander of the Allies in Europe during World War II General Dwight David Eisenhower ordered his officers in all units in the European Theater, he stated,

 

. . .the most interesting—although horrible—sight that I encountered during the trip was a visit to a German internment camp near Gotha. The things I saw beggar description.

While I was touring the camp I encountered three men who had been inmates and by one ruse or another had made their escape. I interviewed them through an interpreter. The visual evidence and the verbal testimony of starvation, cruelty and bestiality were so overpowering as to leave me a bit sick.

In one room, where they were piled up twenty or thirty naked men, killed by starvation, George Patton would not even enter. He said that he would get sick if he did so.

I made the visit deliberately, in order to be in a position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to “propaganda.”

 

Were General Eisenhower alive today, I am sure that he would be touring Europe and the rest of the world, wherever Holocaust denial rose its vile head and he would insist on presenting the official evidence which still exists somewhere within the military evidence collected during and immediately after the war. The Concentration Camps horrified General Eisenhower as they did Generals Paton and Bradly and most of the other officers. General Eisenhower desired for as many as possible to witness the horrors and to put their reactions on paper for the official record as this would one day be swept away as an insignificant event or a fictitious invention of the world Jewry. There is always that larger than life “World Jewry,” as if there is a cabal of Jews running the world through means which are as mysterious as they are diabolical. These anti-Semites will claim that there exists a Jewish mafia style group of Jews who lead the rest and plan every major set of events, control the climate, have a base on the far side of the Moon, use smaller ships to reach the Moon Base and Mother Ship, have interstellar ships and that nobody in any government does anything before receiving their orders from this small group which makes up under 0.2% of world population. We may exceed any and all expectations and statistical analysis but this is due to diligence, emphasis on education and a strong work ethic, not to magic or other mysterious mystical trickery. There is no mystery to how and why Jews lead most of professions requiring higher education.

Mahmoud Abbas has been a busy beaver running to and fro pleading for anybody to press Israel and squeeze more concessions which he can gather for free and brag that he is the hero of the people. He has been pressing the French with a modicum of fruitfulness. He recently ran off to Cairo pestering President Sisi to also press for a renewal of a peace he will never accept. Abbas has no ability to accept anything less than the complete obliteration of the Jewish State, Israel, or as he refers to it, the Zionist Entity. Mahmoud Abbas has made it clear to the Arab world that he is aware that the only peace he will allow is for the replacement of Israel with an Arab state and the Jews liquidated. This is the only promise Abbas feels he need honor and any agreement with anyone else including the French, Sisi, the United States, The United Nations and any other entity are to be a ruse towards reaching the desired end of Israel and that is the only truth. But Sisi has enough on his plate and needed Abbas pressing like he needs a hole in his head. Possibly just to clear his plate of this annoyance or possibly in earnest desire to do what is right Sisi made a statement pressing for a restart of the “Peace Process.” Now the circus begins anew and Israel can only now attempt to mitigate this renewed threat taking as little damage as possible.

 

The immediate reaction to Sisi’s pressured request has been as expected. Mahmoud Abbas is delighted and immediately took to demanding that Israel prepare to restart the peace process and take the required steps to allow for the negotiations to begin. This is not what many will think it is as it is most definitely not a demand to schedule a meeting as that had been offered and on the table for the last sixty years if only the Palestinians desired peace rather than conquest. This desire for Israel to prepare for negotiations actually means for Israel to start making offers of concessions until Abbas decides which concessions he desires to accept and may even add a few suggestions of his own. He might even renew his demand that Israel permit a land connection between Gaza and Ramallah a mile wide across Israel as dividing the two Palestinian entities is unfair to any who have family in both sides. That such a grant would divide Israel in half separating the north from the south is, of course, of no consequence as only Abbas and the Palestinian desires to be considered valid and Israeli rights as secondary. That has been the basic rule of the game when the outside world intervenes and takes to pressing for progress, a word which has come to mean Israeli concessions and Abbas lies and deceptions accepted as progress.

 

But Abbas was not the only one pleased with this request. Another took full advantage of the ploy to pry concessions from Israel in a naked political maneuver hoping to gain advantage in any coming election at the potential cost of the safety of the nation. This advantage was pressed by the leader of the minority party leader, the Labor Party leader Yitzhak Herzog. This was of no surprise as Yitzhak Herzog has never missed any opportunity to direct pressures against the government and risks the safety of the Israeli public if he can make any political points. The real shame of Herzog and his jumping excitedly on this Abbas attack on Israel is made all the worse as the mood of the peoples of Israel as proven in the last election and has only deepened has been towards the Zionist and nationalist camp as well as becoming more religious. Herzog and his party are socialists and internationalist and has teamed up with Tzipi Livni and her party, which has all but collapsed, and in an attempt to mislead the public adopted the name “Zionist Union” despite being anything but Zionist and running claiming to be the peace party which could lead Israel and the Palestinian Entities, Hamas and Abbas’s Palestinian Authority, to a peace agreement and willing to make whatever painful sacrifice necessary for peace. Perhaps he is not aware that to make peace he would need to sacrifice the entire nation but if that is true then he is completely unaware of reality or is being deceitful, neither of which is a good qualification for leading the nation.

Then there is the French call for a peace conference to discuss the Israel Palestinian Peace Process where they have pressed for numerous countries to send representatives to make discussions as to what steps need to be explored for restarting the peace negotiations. It has been rumored that a number of Arab nations are sending representatives as well as many European nations, all of which are at best questionable in any list of friends of Israel. Further, the United States is debating having Secretary of State Kerry giving the French initiative the boost of their participation. There is one country which has been expressly not invited and will not be admitted even if they desired to join the confab, Israel. What devilish schemes are going to be considered that Israel is expressly excluded from a peace conference under the banner of making peace between the Arab world and Israel starting with the Palestinians where everybody is welcome except Israel? Israel should make it known that they will not be considering anything coming out of the French initiative without allowing the Israeli public and their representatives in the Knesset and the Prime Minister and his Cabinet have reviewed and seriously considered any and all consequences of the prospective solutions.

 

The one item which appears to have escaped everybody was the offers already made in the past which during the peace talks sponsored by President Clinton had been told by Yasser Arafat he would accept and after pressing Israeli Prime minister Ehud Barak to accept the night before. When President Clinton and Secretary of State Albright presented Arafat with the deal he had told President Clinton he would accept just twelve hours or so earlier, Arafat replied by stalking out of the talks refusing to return or make any further demands returning to Ramallah and starting the Second Intifada which murdered over a thousand Israelis and injured innumerably more. Since then there have been at least four more offers made which were comparable or even surpassing that deal and all have been refused out of hand. All included sharing Jerusalem between the two states as their Capital. All included ninety-five percent of Judea and Samaria with equal land swaps making up the remainder. All were thought by the United States to be sufficient to initially meet with their approval. All were rejected by Mahmoud Abbas as insufficient without so much as even a hint at what would be acceptable. All were then declared as failures by Israel to make sufficient sacrifice for peace by the media and all of Europe, the United Nations and even the formerly approving representatives of the United States.

Why Israel should even pretend to accept such overtures knowing that Abbas will never make peace and any agreement made Abbas demands that terror attacks be continued, demands for more sacrifices from Israel meaning giving up land that the Palestinians never resided on, knowing that in the Palestinian schools they teach the children that they are from cities and towns inside Israel and that they will return to their homes which in most cases never existed, and knowing that the world would gladly sacrifice Israel in the hope it would spare them future terrorist attacks, which is beyond any reasonable doubt as proven by past actions and statements. Why the world is even wasting time and effort would be beyond understanding except that it is the worst kept secret that they would sacrifice Israel for even the lie that it would protect them from future Islamic terror or subversive acts as part of a civilizational jihad. Israel need save the world from their own foolishness as the truth is that Israel is the stopper in the bottle between the Islamic world and Europe and the rest of the world. Israel may not prevent some incursions by terror but Israel does make such less likely as Israel by her existence is the first target on their list. Further, Israel provides the best intelligence by which some attacks are prevented though an attack prevented never makes any news and thus no news is good news. News of such might compromise the avenues by which the intelligence was acquired, thus no news is doubly good news as it allows for future times of no news being good news. Unfortunately, the aims of these peace initiatives are to make news which eventually will bring bad news as such news serves simply to aggravate the problems and agitate hidden terrorist potentials. The world would be better served by allowing direct negotiations to take place when the Arab leadership is willing to honestly approach a real peace and not just another attempt to destroy Israel first and Europe next. Pray that somebody somewhere comes to their senses and prevents more damage than has already been accomplished.

Snapshot of Leftist Europe and Israel

 

The British Labour Party has been experiencing a rare and revealing problem, some of their members have broken the golden rule and have been speaking honestly expressing thoughts which most prefer not be made public. In an effort to subjugate their remaining members who might be tempted to join the chorus singing the songs revealing their honest beliefs and allowing their beliefs normally kept tight to the chest and under wraps displayed out on their public clothesline for all to bear witness. The leader of the unbelievable revolt and leader in making this spectacle has been the duo of former London mayor and Labour activist Ken Livingstone and Labour MP Naz Shah who were suspended for anti-Semitic comments. Their crime was honesty as they were simply stating what so many leftists the worldwide believe when it comes to the Jewish People, Israeli Jews and Jews in general. One of their tropes calls for all Israeli Jews be forced to relocate into the United States and leave the entirety of the Middle East including the Israelite homeland for the Arab Palestinian Muslim invaders who poured out of the Arabian Peninsula dislocating, destroying or slaughtering every Jewish community they met forcing the remaining Jews from their ancestral home, the lands the Europeans wish to reward the conquerors with and punish the indigenous peoples who are returning to their homeland making it productive for the first time in centuries.

 

One easily identifies their racism which runs ramped in their desires as they are not demanding the Jews be permitted to return to their former homelands as that would include numerous Arab nations who had forced their Jewish citizens to flee often with merely one suitcase and the clothes on their backs. Often the suitcases were inspected and any items of worth, anything from treasure to even slightly valuable, such as but not limited to Torah Scrolls, Tefillin, jewelry, artworks, heirlooms, objects of silver, anything with gold, platinum items as well as coins or other monies were removed and stolen by the inspectors. They also are apparently refusing to permit the Jews from Europe to return to their homes from which they were driven or from returning to their former homes or anywhere else in Europe. Their demand is for all Jews to be relocated into the United States starting with the Israeli Jews. Does any of this sound familiar? Europeans demanding that the Jews be relocated away from their homes starting with those from the Middle East, especially from Jerusalem and the remainder of the Jewish State. At least they are not starting with the Jews residing in Europe, though we would bet they would be next shipped off to the United States. After the World War II experience with the S.S. St. Louis, what makes them believe the United States would accept the world’s Jews saving them from a fate of suffering and death? We would bet there are sufficient in the United States who would be extremely averse to such a plan and would do whatever it takes to resist such from occurring likely allying with the State Department working to drown such an idea from fruition through endless paperwork.

 

What is truly frightening is that the idea, the concept, the plotting, the whatever you desire to call it, the shipping Israeli Jews wholesale off to the United States to be settled where and under what conditions with what future intents is actually one of the least prejudicially insulting thoughts emerging from Britain and around the entirety of the European Union (EU) and fellow governments. Salim Mulla, who currently serves as a Labour councilor for the city of Blackburn, made a number of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic comments in the summer of 2015 including amongst them, “Zionist Jews are a disgrace to humanity.” What is an even more frightening reality is that there are a number of predominantly leftist Jews in Europe, the United States and around the world even to include Israel who would agree with that statement. But hating Jews whether Zionist or new wave progressives who could not tell you what the inside of a Synagogue looks like not having seen one since they were thirteen, are not anything new in the world and definitely not new to Europe. What is truly frightening is the depth and expanse of such hatred within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) where anti-Semitic beliefs run rampant and are off-scale compared to the rest of the planet. For an in-depth global study’s result, one can peruse the conclusions of the ADL Global 100, An Index of Anti-Semitism. The results in the different categories and especially regarding the Shoah, the Holocaust, are absolutely frightening and prove that its remembrance will have fallen through the cracks and exited our common memories within another two or at most three generations. If one does not remember or know from whence they came, they cannot have any idea where they are heading as they have no reference points or knowledge to compare now with then.

 

That aside, the rapid rise of anti-Semitism and particularly anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism in Europe and lagging but rising in the United States and the remainder of the Anglosphere is purely frightening. It is these statistics and general mistrust by those in positions of power, especially those in appointed positions such as ministers and others in the EU, that reveals the extent of the problem. Though absolutely appalling after the atrocities committed in the names of the European people during World War II, the return and rampant rise of anti-Semitism is simply beyond reason. That the Foreign Minister of Sweden not only made directly false anti-Semitic tropes assigning their worst attributes to the Prime Minister of Israel, his Cabinet, the Ministers of the Knesset, “Settlers” and Israelis generally; then along came the former mayor of Malmo, Sweden with comments when in power advising the Jews of Malmo, and community with tens of centuries of history in the town, that there was nothing which could be done to protect the Jews and if they felt unsafe they should move to somewhere far less threatening in their opinions and then dismissed the issue. Then there are the near riots and even riots by the new immigrants against allowing the Jews any representation in government, positions of power or respect, teaching, professorship in the universities and other positions much as the Nazis denied such to Jews. It is also how the Arab governments limit the Arab Palestinians under their stewardship in the numerous refugee camps where Arabs have languished for decades not permitted to hold jobs much more respectful than street sweeper and who are forbidden a normal education, instead having their children taught anti-Semitic hatreds and poisoning their minds leading to the terrorism coming from these camps. These camps even exist in Nablus, Gaza City and other areas under Arab Palestinian rule where their own rulers treat them as lepers who must only be released to infect Israeli society and are separate from the Arab Palestinian society surrounding their camps. Europe blames Israel for the sad treatment of these Arab refugees who are far beyond Israeli influence.

 

European politicians largely believe that Israel is an easy target on which to pin all of societal ills. Still, looking through the opinions of Jews and particularly Israelis, one finds the nations who are most favorable are those which have had an unforeseen or other horrific natural or manmade disaster and found the Israelis not only the first there with the most and a system in place where it is as if they are trained for just the events they address from typhoons, earthquakes, tornados, flooding, disease or any other natural or manmade disaster. In Haiti, Israel had the first functioning and fully operating hospital with X-Ray, MRI and every modern diagnostic department including neonatal long before any other such as the United States was a close second almost matching Israel’s hospital but over a week later. Israel also had dogs, robots and every conceivable search and rescue assistance on the ground within thirty-six hours. In the Philippines after their worst and most horrific storm in history, Israel was amongst the first on the scene; it was difficult beating the United States as they have bases already there. Nepal, Japan, Philippines and the other nations where Israel has come to aide, even setting up Israeli clinics in villages so remote they had previously never been visited by outside assistance even from their own government, have lower statistic of anti-Semitism then even the developed nations. Often in these instances one Israeli remains behind for a year training the people of the village and surrounding area first aid, use of diagnostic equipment, upkeep and calibration, and other areas of medicine leaving the clinic and equipment behind and restocking these clinics until the government of that nation can take over the operations. Israel had the most broad search and rescue teams as well as field hospital in Nepal, something nations with ten times as many of their citizens lost in the earthquake did not do. Israel remained ten days longer than scheduled as they refused to depart without finding their last citizen. These nations have the least anti-Semitism of the world as they have seen the truth that is Israel. Israel is one of the few nations to offer the United States their assistance after Katrina and Sandy and other natural disasters. Often Israeli assistance is refused as in Sandy and Katrina as well as 9/11, but Israeli expertise assisted after the Boston Marathon bombing. Israel has been accused by some of never stepping up and assisting the United States after a disaster and labeled as ingrates for such lack of actions. The truth is Israeli assistance after every disaster in the United States has not only been refused but banned from assisting even through Jewish agencies.

 

Still, Europe rates less anti-Semitic than anywhere outside of the United States and Israel. The most negative feelings towards Israel and Jews come from the Arab Palestinian areas where they are fed a continuous sixty hour a day stream of anti-Semitic lies and misrepresentations even including misrepresenting actual news stories, using proven libels such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and religious instruction which demands their hatred of Israel and the Jews. The area with the highest anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism was MENA followed by Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa with North America and the United States and Canada along with Czech Republic having the lowest such numbers. MENA led the world with number of people never having met a Jew in their lifetime, but that did not prevent their hatred for them. Next in the never having met a Jew was Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Europe rates very high on having met a Jew yet still held many negative feelings and beliefs about Jews. The study linked above is an eye-opening read and is in largely graph or simple percentages making comparisons and such very easy and the coverage is truly universal and extensive.

 

Despite many attributes one might think their civility would prevent Europeans from being heavily anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist or anti-Israeli. They managed to reach high levels in many areas which should be cause for concern and even panic and reassessment of their societal outlooks. One of the more amusing sets of numbers was the percentages which believed that the Jewish Population of the planet was above 2%, above 5%, 10% and even 20%. The truth is the Jews number below 0.2% of the world’s population. Europe still had a higher rate of hatreds and belief in stereotypes and blood libels even compared to areas of the world with almost no Jewish population. The frightening numbers in Europe and beyond were the percentages of those who had never met a Jew to having highly anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli rating as well as believing some of the most horrific and terrible blood libels about Jews such as the Holocaust was made up by the Jews as well as believing that the Jews controlled media, retail, politics, the United States, and other businesses which even the most casual observer could see was false. Despite the seeming propensity of Europeans, and an even higher percentage of European politicians, dislike to hatred for the Jewish People and everything that is seen as Jewish such as Israel, Zionism, and presumably the Governments, Israeli leaders still seek European approval. If Jews were even marginally as influential and controlled so many nations, political parties and think tanks and other political entities; we would not be so despised. We really would rule the world and control everybody’s life from birth to death just as far too many Europeans believe.

 

With such spewing of hatred and poison from the European halls of power and hierarchy against Israel, Zionism and Jews in general, one would think that the Israeli government would be done with Europe and anywhere else that holds such negative tropes as truisms. Instead the Israeli leadership spends far too much energy and effort attempting to favor friendship with these European leaders who would just as soon demolish Israel and eradicate what they see as a scourge on the planet which is the Jews. The manner in which Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ya’alon have acted echoing almost word for word the New York Times (American newspaper that thinks it is European), the French, British and other parliaments, far too many Foreign Ministers and virtually every other anti-Semite sitting in a position of power in Europe; one would think they are running for election in Europe. They feign glory to the point that it becomes an obsession serving the European Parliaments and their respective ministers. Though some Israeli politicians have seen fit to denounce Salim Mulla, Jeremy Corbyn, Ken Livingstone, conspiracy theorist Michael Harris, Ilyas Aziz and a few others, the majority appear to believe that if the Europeans or Americans disapprove of an action that Israel should be forbidden doing such. Had such an attitude existed in 1947-8, there would likely be no Israel as either Israel would have declared itself a state or forever remained in limbo as the Europeans and United States State Department believe now as they did then. This seeming insistence that every move taken by the government of Israel must first have the approval of the United States and Europe and that if too many amongst these anti-Israel haters disapprove then obviously Israel should reassess their standards and the manner in which things are observed bringing them in-line with the Europeans and Americans. That is no way to effectively run a country, especially one as alienated as Israel.

 

The Israeli politicians apparently get into a society where emulating the Europeans and certain Americans (you know, the politically correct Americans and not those Tea Party, Sarah Palin supporting, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz supporting, Michael Savage listening, Glen Beck following Neanderthal throw-back, retro-genetic, devolved morons) becomes required. Things in Israel must be conditioned and approved to be socially acceptable at the finest of European art houses and cafés no matter the effect or results and destructions such policies might have on Israeli society and the survival of the Jewish People. This dependence on European and leftist approval had become most evident in the treatment of the soldier Elor Azariya in the shooting death of a Palestinian terrorist who had just been neutralized from attempting to stab IDF soldiers at a checkpoint but had yet to be inspected for explosives or even other weapons. The soldier stated he believed that the terrorist was reaching for a detonator, a story upheld by virtually all others including MDA medics who were at the scene and some unable to even approach the terrorist as he was not completely rendered safe and explosives free among other security checks. The soldiers who had not done so were busy tending an injured soldier with multiple stabbing wounds. There had been a second terrorist who had received fatal wounds when soldier fired in self-defense. Before even the initial statements were gathered from those at the scene, the Prime Minister and Defense Minister were already declaring the soldier to be a horrible monster expressing rumors of things he might have said in the barracks where fish stories abound, just not about fishing. They and other Knesset Ministers along with the leftist media had tried and convicted the soldier before nightfall and were all but calling for his head on a pike outside the Damascus Gate of the Temple Mount. Their knee jerk reaction spouting exactly what would be the European reaction the next day was pathetic and showed a cowardice for backing a protector of the people, an IDF soldier. Is it any wonder why the Religious Zionists in the society feel they have no trusted friends except for a small core of fellow travelers amongst those in the halls of power. This is even more true when one considers the robes of justice would be too leftist even in some European nations and would be considered a travesty in many states of the United States. The fear to be nationalistic amongst Israeli elite is a disease which needs curing if Israel is to survive. The good news is that the majority and growing numbers of the people support the soldier and are realizing that Judaism and Zionism are the two anchors necessary if Israel is to survive. Now Israelis need to face the most impossible challenge they may ever face as a nation, finding those who believe as they believe and placing them in ever larger numbers into the Knesset and into taking position within the various government agencies, especially law enforcement and national security. The most difficult will be weeding out those holding high positions in the IDF and other enforcement agencies, most especially those dedicated to security and intelligence, as well as making greater inroads into the media and entertainment. We realize the last areas are not normally areas of expertise or even interest for those more dedicated to building the nation, its economy and religious institutions and following Torah; but if the foundations of culture are not swayed over to Torah and the land, then all else will be a struggle and forever an uphill battle. We cannot be like Sisyphus and push the bolder to the top of the hill every day only to have it roll back to the valley below every night. We must not even be like the great King Leonidas who led his three-hundred Spartans and five thousand supporting Greek soldiers who held the pass at Thermopylae for three days before falling to the Persian masses of troops.

 

This is a battle that the religious Zionists must win decisively and permanently which means that like we learn Torah and attempt to live Torah, we must also live for Israel and make her survival on all the land Hashem promised starting with the area between the river and the sea which we must make all under Israeli rule and yet continue the democratic governance. Perhaps the time is coming where a Constitution is crafted and a new bicameral parliament or legislature established while using such to preserve the Jewishness of the nation of Israel. We need to marry all the various tribal-like customs and blur the differentiations between Eastern European and Western European as well as MENA communities and the other various tribes we are discovering as they are beginning to make the trip home, the Ingathering. Making the rabbinate to have but a single Chief Rabbi would be a step in the right direction and our children have already taken giant stride towards unifying the differing factions through intermarriage, a beautiful and fitting step in the right direction. Finally, Israeli governance must be first, foremost and almost exclusively about Israel and the rest of the world be permitted their screaming as long as we acknowledge their defamations and are able to repeat them and still refuse to establish policies based on the demands placed upon Israel by a hostile outside world. We have Torah and need little else. Torah allows our choosing our governance as long as that governance serves the people and does nothing to lessen the influence and applications of Torah to our daily lives. The time is now to claim all of Judea and Samaria and begin to allow its peoples to become Israeli citizens or emigrate with our assistance if we feel such is required. We must take control of their education system and teach their students that which is necessary to live and be productive in a modern society. We need to bring services and establish economic inclusion as well as political, cultural and societal inclusion. By inclusion we will not mean Jewish but Israeli. Those who are Israeli must include having a respect for the Jewishness of the state of Israel. If any choose to violently refuse and combat against this Jewishness, they must be forced from amongst us. This includes those who instigate, plan bombings or disruptions, actively attempt to subjugate parts of the nation or any other treasonous acts. This is no different than any other nation which is a free democratic nation. Then our nations can become one and the world will recognize our singular right as the Jewish State. Servitude is no path to equality, respectful nationalism and the exercise of the right to make one’s own way as a nation that is the path to equality. What is beautiful about this path is that each nation can walk with pride in their differences while respecting others that right and then weaving the fabric which includes all the nations of the world. None can be a part of this fabric of nations if they bare swords against their neighbors as swords will tend to cut and then shred the fabric and thus undo all efforts of mutual beneficial actions. Those baring swords need be exorcised from the community of nations and disregarded in all acts between nations until they prove they prefer inclusion to supremacy. Israel needs to show a stronger self-confidence and belief in our rightness of actions and place out before us our beloved Torah in all actions and all that it includes, as it is a rarity amongst such laws as it allows for others to live as they choose providing they allow the Jews the same.

These rights are self-evident and must apply equally to all nations, end of story (and article).
