There has been near constant accusations and bloviating all about Donald Trump’s presumed short fuse. These attacks have come furious and provokingly and these are being used as chum in the water for the mainstream media to feast on; and believe us they have been coordinating and laying aside above the fold for every leading news-story; or should we say political editorial. These salacious assaults on Donald Trump would be far more convincing and less conniving if they were to include even a hint on Hillary Clinton’s short fuse and ill-tempered side which were a driving force behind much of what has displayed her being ill-fit to be the President of the most powerful nation on the planet. When Donald Trump has an emotional outburst, his response is verbal and short-lived. Hillary Clinton is known to carry forth for the remainder of life, hers or her newly acquired target. When Bill Clinton lost his reelection election she famously called the Christian Campaign Manager a “F—-g Jew B——d.” She became the wounded warrior and claimed that a “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” was behind the accusations of sexual misconduct of her husband. Beyond that, Hillary took charge of the intimidation, belittling, slandering, character assassination, media control, story massaging and sundry miscellaneous attacks targeting any and all allegations and accusations against Bill Clinton thus assuring that no more women, or bimbos as the White House labeled those coming forward, would be coming up with any additional accusations or verifications against the President. This was a well-coordinated assault just as well planned and executed as was the campaign to get out the vote except this was a suppress the evidence effort.

If this was the extent of Hillary Clinton perfidy, there would be little evidence of her unsuitability for the office of President of the United States. Hillary claims how she has always been so transparent in all her actions that the public can trust that all her actions will be entirely open and able to be monitored by all who are interested. Apparently Hillary Clinton has completely forgotten her efforts at designing her own version of a healthcare system. Her committee contained some of the best minds in the progressive movement plus the fly in the ointment, Hillary Clinton. The public was left in the dark. Congress was left in the dark. The media, including the leftist media, was left guessing, being fed tempting morsels but actually only gristle and no red meat. The universe was led on the merry path of flowers and unicorns with all the wonderful reports of total free coverage with almost no additional costs. Perhaps the promises of everything for nothing proved to be the straw that broke the healthcare back. When Hillary Clinton and companies’ plan was presented to Congress, even the democrat faithful headed for the hills escaping as fast as they could. Her produced healthcare plan was such a monstrous and unwieldly conglomeration of regulations, legal demands, meticulous record keeping and required filings with the Federal Government that all who read the plan were flabbergasted. Commentary from numerous sources inside and outside, but close to the manners in which the plan was hatched, told of Hillary Clinton riding roughshod over all contrary opinions doing exactly as she thought best. This kind of leadership, totalitarian leadership, had actually driven a number of leading surgeons and physicians from participating or even signing the plan sent to Congress. They told of fiery outbreaks replete with profanity at some of the mildest of suggestions or alternative proposals where Hillary Clinton appeared to have lost all sense of reason.

 

Finally, there were numerous reports and even complaints filed against Hillary Clinton for abusive language, abusive treatment, violent outbursts and some workers fearing for their safety. These complaints and requests for transfer or alternate position from people who had nearly a lifetime of service climbing to reach a White House assignment and to then risk never making it back to their former privileged position was an acceptable sacrifice to be rid of Hillary Clinton. All of these point to Hillary Clinton not only having an explosive temper but also a short fuse with a vengefully long memory. Such was a temperament of throwing items, oft of value, for periods as long lasting as an entire day and even lasting through the next day or beyond as well. Some who have been found to get on the wrong side of Hillary Clinton have related that despite attempts to settle their differences or even apologize have failed dashed on the craggy cliffs which make up the beach at shoreline Clinton. Hillary Clinton has proven herself to be a person with a malleable core where beliefs come to die especially after receiving poor poll ratings. Taking the sum of these parts produces a picture of an unbalanced individual whose coworkers fear working anywhere near her spheres of influence.

 

Many have spoken similarly of Donald Trump, but from most appearances his tantrums have been largely bluster with little threat of physical violence, at least before the October Surprise of crass claims of sexual violence. Given the claims of violent actions, we would feel safer with a Donald Trump Presidency than a Hillary Clinton Presidency. Unfortunately, elections remain out by three weeks and it is still anybody’s election to win or lose. Donald Trump will be facing sexual harassment charges most of which are likely people coming forth for their moment of fame. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is facing a truly deep character fault which will have a direct effect on her Presidency. As to which one is most likely to get the United States embroiled into a war, it would be Hillary Clinton with her establishment of a “No Fly Zone” probably on Aleppo could escalate with the downing of a Russian fighter jet leading to a direct confrontation. That is but a single potential point of contention where a single miscalculation could lead to great problems soon thereafter. That alone is food for thought.

One More Time Into the Breach

 

One of the previous times we went through this scenario we titled our article “Once More Down the Rabbit Hole”, thus the slightly different title though there may be some similarities and potentially even identical phrasing. We are looking at another attempt to force some form of meeting between high level Israeli officials and Palestinian Authority (PA) high level officials. The initial intent is to have President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Netanyahu meet under the auspices of the Russians in Moscow possibly with Russian President Putin moderating. With only initial commentary and reporting the media is likely to report that everything looks promising that President Putin using the weight and international presence of the Russian Federation to possibly lead to their making headway which President Obama and the United States Presidents preceding him inability to make any measurable gains towards the mythical “two states for two peoples living in peace and security” supposed oasis in a dessert of missed opportunities. But the same old problems are already peeking from between the lines and even the letters of initial reports. Of course these reports are all puppy dogs and cuddly kittens snuggling together promising that there will this time be some headway made in finding solutions for the Arab-Israeli peace process. Please do not be sucked in by these Pollyannish reports reporting lollipops and ice cream for all. We are willing with minimal actual reports or additional information other than one small mention in a single quote to predict there will either be no meeting or Mahmoud Abbas will depart any meetings within the first eighteen hours blaming Israel for refusing to make the necessary sacrifices for peace.

 

What wording in what quote by whom, you ask. The person was President Mahmoud Abbas but we may need to provide you with some other statements and quotes before we go to President Abbas. Netanyahu’s office said in a statement, “The prime minister presented Israel’s position that he is always ready to meet with president Abbas directly and without preconditions. He is therefore reviewing the Russian president’s proposal and the timing of a possible meeting.” This does not sound all that horrific as it sets only one single condition, that there be no conditions, just a meeting as equals and proceeding from that point as equals. Somehow, in the coming weeks this statement will be transformed by those on the extreme left and right as well as some mainstream progressives into some nefarious evil set of denials of perfectly obvious dodges by the Israelis of their obvious obligations to make obvious and logical measures in order to reach a lasting peace. Further it was posted that, Netanyahu has said he is open to such a meeting together with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Further added in reports was this from PA officials who stated, “Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has agreed on a Russian proposal for him to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as part of a new peace push.” Abed al-Hafeez Nofal, the PA Ambassador to Moscow stated, “We told the Russian side today that president Abbas accepted the Russian initiative about the meeting of Abbas and Netanyahu with President Putin in Moscow,” So far, so good, but wait, there’s more.

 

Netanyahu, Putin, Abbas

Netanyahu, Putin, Abbas

 

Netanyahu had the audacity to claim that he is actually open to such a meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas with the meeting being together with Russian President Vladimir Putin who can assure that both sides are true to the expectations and necessary steps to make a lasting and enforceable and appreciative peace setting and secure borders which would promise peace for the foreseeable future. How absolutely sneaky of Netanyahu to agree to meet stating his desire for the meet to be without preconditions and to seek an equitable peace respecting the rights of both peoples setting secure and enforceable borders for a lasting peace. Have you caught the series of demands couched in Netanyahu’s statement? Let us list them for you, not necessarily in order, secure borders which is code for a viable Jewish State, enforceable borders which implies safety from terrorist attacks, lasting peace which implied an end to violence, appreciative which implies mutual acceptance and both sides taking steps which demands cooperation and compromise from the PA and not solely Israel surrendering everything just to meet for a few seconds so the media can take pictures. Such demands, surely Netanyahu realizes that the PA and especially Abbas can never accept such equanimity.

 

And right on cue, President Abbas ordered the usual comeback with the singular accusation against Israel, one Israel has absolutely no defense against, as Abed al-Hafeez Nofal stated, “But it is clear for us that the Israelis are evading the requirements of the meeting.” Keeping in step with the usual modus operandi, Abbas and company insisted that the meeting be scheduled for Friday of this week, September 9, 2016 while insisting Israel meet the required but unspecified known requirements to facilitate the meeting as they had already accused Israel of refusing to meet said but unspecified requirements thus placing all blame with Israel. Israel refused to meet on such short notice as they refused to make the required sacrifices for peace so how could any thinking human being fault the PA or Abbas who was willing to accept meeting with Netanyahu immediately after Israel met the preconditions known to all who follow the peace process. What were these obvious required preconditions Israel refused to meet? Well, there are numerous different such requirements which have been used in the past to make Israel the party unwilling to meet reasonable conditions for peace. One has to note that all PA demands are reasonable conditions which are well known and agreed upon and they are Israeli obligations. Why, one who is erudite might inquire. Well, because at the meetings of the Arab League, the United Nations General Assembly and other such confabs the Palestinian demands are echoed and set down as if they were the law of the universe and denying them would be tantamount to the worst sins humankind has ever committed, which of course is untrue.

 

This reference was an unobtrusive and subtle reference of the presumed “that the Israelis are evading the requirements of the meeting.” This statement was not followed up upon and there has been no formalization of exactly what Israeli requirements have been left unfulfilled. We can hazard a guess if you would like. One favorite is for Israel to remove all the settlements in order to prepare the lands for the Palestinian state. There is one trio of words which require defining before this “requirement” can be discussed, and those are “all the settlements” which most of the world believes are the Israeli towns, cities, factories, businesses, universities, schools and hospital clinics from beyond the Green Line. Even such as that definition goes well beyond International Law and also beyond any stipulations of the Oslo Accords but that is not the end of this little set of words. One need understand that the PA and much of the Arab World and Muslim World define not only Jews residing beyond the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice Lines as settlements but also all of Jerusalem, Netanya, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Beer Sheva, Eilat, Tiberius, Ma’alot and Nahariya. Basically they believe any Jews residing, as their chanted slogan states, “from the River to the Sea” meaning all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea should be vacated and turned over to them before any meeting and then there can be a discussion on whether the Jews will be sent to the United States or annihilated. The complete surrender of Israel is the only acceptable end for negotiations and the PA sees no reason to actually argue over details as they prefer to simply demand the final result in some vagaries and then claim Israel is not meeting their obligations.

 

The hidden secret which has been reported but always gets lost somewhere between the written page and the memories of those reading the articles is that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) Movement was initially the Arab World boycott of Israel plus the “Three No’s” decided upon in the Khartoum Resolution of 1967. These were; no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with Israel. Subsequently the PA with the assistance financially of the United Nations, the European Union, United States, European governments and NGOs expanded these concepts folding theme into a package they called the BDS Movement. This went hand in hand with their claims of Apartheid Israel and that Israel was blocking any hope of peace by refusing to meet their obligations. Mahmoud Abbas also declared, with the assistance of an Imam, that all the lands of the British Mandate were WAQF lands, holy Islamic lands which can never be passed on to non-Muslims and that Muslims under Islamic law and Sharia are required to regain the territory and eradicate the nonbelievers who stole this Islamic Waqf. According to this ruling by Abbas and accepted by the Arab World if a Jew were to take a bag of sand from the beach near Akko and return with the sand to the United States then a squad of terrorists would need be dispatched to retrieve this sand in order to make the land whole once more. This is the fanaticism Israel faces where the PA and much of the leftist progressive political world are perfectly content with granting the PA everything they demand including the end of Israel and her people.

 

Much of Europe is starting their long walk down the primrose path paved with good intentions which includes making the new refugees feel secure and in a familiar surroundings. It matters not that the indigenous population is facing attacks especially against women and girls including young girls as young as nine and ten. There are rape gangs and even rape clubs where they force non-Islamic, and even those Muslims who refuse to wear the protection clothing (Burkas), women into sex through many and varied means which once any one of them gets their way with the young girl she is soon thereafter gang raped and after that any Islamic man can use her for their own pleasure. The sole reason such has not become a common practice in Israel is because of the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) whose members likely include a brother or a cousin or even a parent or uncle or aunt who is able to take their firearm with them, some are encouraged in doing so, and would probably end this horrific situation. Zero tolerance for raping young girls or other such crimes has to be the order of the day every day and such molestations and indignities cannot be permitted to stand. Just because it is a part of Islamic culture being practiced by the thousands of young Islamic men who have been infiltrating Europe as well as the United States and Canada does not mean that their host nations need to permit such barbarity. The enforcement of rape and molestation charges would be an excellent first step in teaching the Muslims what their initial steps towards assimilation will be. If assimilation is not in their repertoire, then either they need an object lesson placing this desire at the head of their “to do list” or repatriating them with wherever they migrated from would be in order. This is not an impossible task and would solve a number of problems all at once.

 

The same need go for the PA and its population. They need be absorbed as part of Israel and the Israelis should run their schools which must include learning the Hebrew language, learning Jewish and Israelite history, the basic concepts and commandments from within Torah. The younger Arabs as they reached adulthood would need to join their parents in taking the Assimilation testing before being placed on the route for becoming an Israeli citizen with full political rights as well as the other human rights. Those who are incapable of or do not desire learning such history and Hebrew could instead remain in Israel living as a registered alien. This would permit their having voting rights only in Areas A and B but not in national elections. As is required by International Law they would be granted full human rights, the religious right to worship as they pleased but not proselytize or other subversive anti-Semitic or anti-Israeli actions. They would have no voting rights outside Areas A and B as, by Mandate laws which the United Nations accepted in Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, while they are to be granted all civil and human rights, Israel is not required to provide them with political rights or actual citizenship unless the Israeli government so chooses. Any action of terrorism would result in the immediate deportation of any individual convicted of such an act after they served their prison terms. Those committing terrorist acts would forfeit their non-resident alien status and become persona non grata never permitted to return within Israeli borders for the indeterminate future. As Abbas and the rest of the PA and Hamas have all stated they would continue the fight to eradicate the Jews even if Israel surrendered everything but the Tel Aviv metropolitan area then those choosing active terrorism would be returned to their nation of origin or if none could be discerned, they would be unceremoniously dumped across the Syria border and never permitted to return to Israel. But as far as the Russian peace plan, if any meetings do actually come to fruition, it will likely be the shortest peace on record, Hashem willing. When one side will only accept a total and complete surrender of one nation, that nations cannot agree to such terms and the world should not expect Israel to accept such terms. There has been anything but progress towards peace since May 15, 1948, and there is nothing in our current situation which implies that progress is at all possible that might offer even the slightest glimmer of hope. That is exactly what will result from the incidents we have witnessed and we can have little else, especially not hope, but such is the situation which has been exactly as we now see. The future will be promising should a miracle from Hashem strike the entirety of the PA leadership as they open. Anything less and only a miracle will provide and fulfill the needed hopes.

The Unforgivable Sin of Israel

 

If one were to ask the average college student from any of the west’s liberal bastions of tolerance through indoctrination where political correctness trumps truth and social justice is an empty phrase which can be filled with whatever definitions fit the blowing winds of that political correctness which censors everything to name the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the name Israel the answers you would get would have little or no relevance to Israeli reality. You would hear hateful yet there is no kinder or more generous and giving place in the world. You would hear racist yet Israel took in the Jews of Ethiopia when they faced a threat of genocide, took in Vietnamese boat people when much of the world was prepared to let them drown or starve. Israel flies half way around the world to set up fully functioning field hospitals at the location of disasters before other nations can even get a clinic working. Israel augments these field hospitals with a series of clinics and often sends teams out often to places which have never seen aid or government assistance in memory in places such as Haiti and the Philippines or Japan and often leave these clinics and the equipment placed for their operation in nations in need of such facilities again in Haiti and in Japan close to the damaged nuclear plants after the earthquake and tsunami. Israel sponsors one of the most altruistic and wonderful organizations the world possesses called Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) organization which in and of itself would qualify tiny little Israel as one of the most giving and great nations of the world (after the article visit the site of this organization if you are unaware of their works and prepare to be amazed as they go even further than their site can explain). You would hear Apartheid in a nation where every ethnicity, religion, race and nation of origin are treated with complete equality with the one condition, that they came to Israel legally as no nation can be required to accept as citizens people who crossed their border illegally and under false pretenses; though many have attempted to make Israel the first nation required to do so under threat of worldwide sanctions. You might hear warlike as it is true that Israel has had violence thrust upon her requiring violent response but Israel is also a nation, though threatened from all sides, willing to surrender land many times her size for peace as she did with Egypt and offered to do with Jordan yet Israel is now being demanded to surrender her historic heartlands of Judea and Samaria to a terror organization turned international darlings, the PLO which took on a name change while leaving the heart of the PLO terrorist group fully intact and doubling as the governance of their whitewashed Palestinian Authority which is about to once again postpone, which means cancel, elections which were scheduled originally for 2009 but the political winds do not favor the ruling elite and not winning is not an option as in the wonderful and world darlings area under the Palestinian Authority, losing the election will more than likely mean losing your life to the new rulers, Hamas, a rival terror group with one major difference, the PLO, or Palestinian Authority, claims to be secular though its people are Islamist and Hamas is Islamist and thus already holds the hearts and minds of the people.

 

We could continue listing likely responses but the reality is that the image being sold by left leaning to left toppling over to the extreme end of the political spectrum will all find the worst and nastiest of lies and accusations to throw at Israel and then use their echo chamber to make them stick. What, you might ask, has Israel ever done to deserve such hatreds and lies to be spread about her. Well, it is simple really. Israel is the only Western, democratic and developed nation where her Judeo-Christian (truthfully it is Judeo mainly) core population is reproducing at well above replacement numbers and not shrinking as it is noticeable in Europe and soon to be evident in the United States and likely Canada and Australia as well. Israel holds to her Jewish faith as the jewel it is and takes it guidance and truths seriously and to heart despite those leftists and extreme secular socialists who desire to make Israel just like Europe, Russia or the city or suburb of the dying civilization they left behind. The religious community in Israel is gaining in its percentage of the population and is winning over numerous of the children from these other sectors of the society which is having their shortcomings exposed. Israel is the realization of the Hebrew’s dream to reestablish home and forever remain and enjoy this blessed land that Hashem gave unto us. This is made obvious simply by reviewing the past three and a half millennia of these lands. When the Hebrews, what you would today call Jews though there is a difference, settled here after conquering the lands from the tribes of hedonistic, child sacrificing idolaters whom Hashem commanded we expunge from His lands so we could tend this land as Hashem’s gift to us for as long as we kept the law, Torah, and did not stray from the true path with either mind or heart; we failed and were conquered by the Babylonians where the Song of Babylon was written (Psalms 137) speaking of the heart of the Children of Israel, Yerushalayim, and the soul of the Children of Israel, their Heaven ordained lands between the River and the Sea.

 

 

 

 

There is a reason the phrase, “From the River to the Sea,” has been adopted by those supporting the Palestinian Arabs replacement of the nation of Israel. This is because they have studied the history of the Jewish people and have crafted a false narrative where they claim every point from the history from the Hebrews entry into the land they claim they were the original Canaanites which would make them extinct, and they claim every point in Jewish history since including their claims that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the Temple Mount and every structure in the lands are historically theirs and the Jews never existed in the lands. These claims are as valid as their claim to have invented language. The truth is the Arabs were residing in the Arabian Peninsula when the Hebrews, the ancient Jews, resided in Eretz Yisroel, the lands of Israel, and they were worshiping to the Moon god, Allah surprisingly enough, and bowing at the site built around their precious meteor, the same one placed so craftily in that huge black box in the central plaza in Mecca, the Ka’ba (see below).

 

Ka'aba in Mecca is holiest Islamic site in the world definitively holier than Jerusalem and the Temple Mount which is the holiest place for Jews alone.

Ka’aba in Mecca is holiest Islamic site in the world definitively holier than Jerusalem and the Temple Mount which is the holiest place for Jews alone.

 

Returning to the history and what truth it realizes about the lands of Israel. Throughout history these lands have been ruled over but never ruled from by numerous other empires since the original days of Hebrew (Jewish) rule under the Kings, Prophets and Judges of Biblical fame. Each empire had the same problems. The land refused to give up its abundance to them with one exception, the Persians. The Persians conquered the Babylonians and freed the captive Hebrews and allowed them to return and rebuild the Temple, the Second Temple, and settle in their native lands and be semiautonomous and simply pay taxes. Under this arrangement the land prospered, the Persians received their cut of the profit and everybody lived happily for a few centuries until some Persian decided they should simply take the land and its abundance. This led to the land failing and the Hebrews returning to the lands after throwing off the Persian yoke. Then there came the Greeks, Assyrians, Romans, Islamics, Christians, Muslims, and finally the British. The main change came when the Assyrians initially conquered the northern kingdom which had separated from the southern kingdom. The northern kingdom had the name Israel but did not include Yerushalayim thus having no heart. The southern kingdom was Judah which had Yerushalayim, a heart, but its soul, the lands, was incomplete. The northern kingdom was the federation of the ten northern tribes who after being conquered were not heard from again until recent modern history and spread throughout the world with some actually making the effort to remain loyal to Torah as best they were able, some better than others as is true in all human endeavors, and others falling away completely and never to return.

 

The southern kingdom also eventually fell but remained in the land and they were known as Judeans, which became Judans and eventually simply Jew. Whenever these lands were owned and cultivated by other than Hebrews or Judeans or Jews the land begrudgingly gave up anything and was mostly barren. When the Hebrews in any rendition worked these lands they prospered and produced in generous quantities all sorts of foods and products and the land gave wealth. This wealth was often proportional to the following of Torah and Hashem’s laws. When the Hebrews failed the land soured and they were conquered and often removed from their lands. Every conqueror failed to gain profit from the lands of Israel as can be noted even now. When the Jews resided in Gaza it had a flourishing agricultural economy and now that the Jews have been wiped from the land and Hamas rules Gaza it struggles and has a meager agricultural output compared to before. This might have something to do with the Palestinian Arabs immediately after the Jews departed tearing down and trashing the synagogue’s buildings as well as their tearing apart the greenhouses and irrigation works as they found a better use for those pipes than growing crops and eating well, they could make rockets to launch at the Israeli occupiers who had left the lands completely but to the followers of Hamas the Jews are still occupiers because as such they can be blamed for any and all problems stemming from having terrorists running your economy and lands.

 

The West Bank which is made up of Judea and Samaria, ancient Jewish provinces which is why Jordan renamed the lands something, as they described the new name, less Jewish. In these lands the Jews reside largely in Area C where the economy is healthy in most parts. The Arab Palestinians live and rule over Areas A and B where the economy is failing and there is gross mismanagement of resources once again due to terrorists running the government and hatred being their sole profitable product. What keeps the terrorists of Hamas in power in Gaza and the PLO reconfigured as the Palestinian Authority, a great example of putting lipstick on the pig to make it presentable, is due to the desperate support to try and remove the Jews from their ancient homelands being supported through funding in the billions of dollars per month by the Islamic world, the Western world and the Russians and in a lesser manner, the Chinese. This preconceived notion by the Western world that because the Jews returned to their lands, it upset the two main driving forces of their world. The Christians, especially the Catholics, are threatened because replacement theology, which is at their core and a definition of their relevance, depends on the Jews being the accursed of the Deity shared by Judaism and Christendom and thus forced to live throughout the world scattered and never unified or allowed to rule themselves always depending on the goodwill of others, meaning Christians, for their very survival and never ever ever being permitted to return and rule themselves in the Promised Lands. Refusing the Jews unilateral rule over Jerusalem is the saving grace and that the Jews do not control all of Judea and Samaria adds a small amount of safety as the Jews have not returned to rule over all the land; so maybe some of the curses remain and they can still claim to be the new chosen ones and the Catholics claim that the new religious center decided in Heaven to be Vatican City and Rome, what a surprise that the silent conquerors of all the Roman Empire would choose Rome of all places to replace Jerusalem in part. Israel, on the other hand, is prosperous, had a burgeoning agricultural economy, is a leading high tech center of the world, has many innovative companies and leads the world in start-up companies per capita. Israel per capita leads the world in books published, libraries, universities, people with bachelor degrees, masters degrees and doctoral degrees, patents filed and various other areas dealing with science, literature, the arts and all endeavors of social and scientific areas in modern societies. Israel is outdone in total numbers solely by nations considerably larger with the United States being the single most often nation ahead of Israel in total number but per capita it is an entirely different ball game.

 

Burning Israel Star of David

 

When asking college students in the vast Western societal deserts, where the big lie works as well as it always has, Israel is one of the worst places on earth filled with violence, inequalities, desperations and fraught with danger. Ask virtually anyone who had actually spent a fair amount of time; say a year or more, living and working in Israel and you will be regaled with stories of the great opportunities, the helpfulness and optimism of most of the people and the vibrancy of life in Israel. Does Israel have some problems? Well, it is not exactly heaven on earth but she is working on that. Some of the biggest problems stem from constantly having to be on a war footing and the economic price that demands. She has problems of relying too heavily on promises made and having all too many of them broken or made so difficult that their price makes them more threat than promise.

 

She pays a price at having to dance to the dictates of other nations in order to retain sufficient sway to avoid vindictive and viscous attacks from her plethora of enemies. She must balance her different friendly states who do not particularly like each other such as the United States, China, Russia and the European Union, though the European Union would be considered a hostile witness in the world court system when it comes to Israel. Israel has threats which are paid in bullets, rockets, missiles and terrorist attacks which while this should not prevent her also dispelling the lies spread about her throughout the corners of the globe (though I have heard the globe is spherical thus corners is a weird reference) as that would simply be a further strain on her economy. Some have suggested that the vast majority of the employees at Israeli embassies should be Israeli and other than the Ambassador (which unfortunately will never be removed from politics completely) should be trained and be returned every few years for additional training and updating the employees on how to best fight against the mendacious vile statements and accusation made against Israel so that Israel will have a ready force throughout many nations and areas where these embassies become a central hub supporting and even organizing within the Jewish and when requested other communities fighting lies with facts and truths. Yes, a lie will make it half way around the world before the truth gets its pants on and there is a reason for that, a lie needs no facts and the truth must find the facts with which to anchor itself or it becomes rumor and of no use in fighting that lie. Truth will always play catch-up but it has the advantage of veracity and facts.

 

Here are some final little points about Israel. Israel is a democracy and the only functioning democracy over the past sixty-eight years continuously. Israel is not only fighting terror against her own citizens but is treating citizens from neighboring countries and even the Palestinian Arab areas in her hospitals as a humanitarian action as Israel is the most humane nation in her neighborhood if not the world. Israel is quietly providing water, a precious resource in the Middle East, to Jordan to assist with the care of the Syrian refugee camps. Israel has treated victims of the Syria calamity of wars from all sides and all walks of life without asking questions or employing any limiting considerations as life is considered precious and worth saving whenever possible.

 

As noted earlier, Israel runs an organization which treats children with heart defects and sets up entire programs in hospitals throughout the world in some of the neediest nations, equips these departments with the necessary equipment, trains their doctors, nurses, staff, surgeons and support personnel in the use, care and methods of the kinds of operations and care they will need to provide and performs follow up visits to assure that all is working efficiently, takes children from enemy states who cannot come to Israel not have it known they were ever in Israel through third party nations while keeping their and their family’s passports clear of any record of their visit in order to provide life-saving operations many of which procedures originated with Israeli surgeons and researchers.

 

Israel has provided sanctuary to threatened people from throughout the world from the Vietnamese boat people to the Ethiopian Jews and Jews from India and further and the Baha’I. Israel has no class system or other manner of separating people and all citizens have full and equal rights religiously, culturally, socially, legally and have the vote with many actually placing members of their community in the Knesset and have their peoples serving as judges or working as doctors, surgeons, teachers and any other profession side by side with Jews of Israel. The one thing which Israel does not have is any Jews or troops in Gaza which is fully independent and ruled by the terrorist group Hamas whose violent takeover resulted in the embargo which Israel placed to prevent the arming of Hamas as much as possible. Israel, on the other hand, relays tons of food, medicine and other provisions into Gaza daily and provides water and electricity to Gaza for which nothing is ever paid on the bill that had accrued.

 

Israel also has no ruling authority over Areas A and B in Judea and Samaria where the Palestinian Authority, the redressed PLO terror outfit, rules the people and has refused to hold election which Israel cannot force them to hold and has basically crippled two full generations of children by raising them and indoctrinating them. These unfortunate children were invested with a visceral hatred of Israel and the Jews, educating them that only by destroying Israel and murdering the Jews within will they ever know freedom or wealth, They were fed a steady diet of conceit that their favored path is Jihad and their greatest glory is to die in Jihad and service of Islam and Allah. They indoctrinate and instigate on their television and radio stations which are licensed through Israel who has not cut them off as the world would have a conniption fit and become apoplectic. All of Judea and Samaria are legally Israeli lands and Israel could take control of these lands and choose whatever path Israel saw fit for the residents of Areas A and B as well as any other Palestinian Authority citizens as they are alien residents from Jordan.

 

This is further validated by evidence of the last nation of record, though Jordan had rescinded their citizenship and denied they ever were Jordanian, trying to refute even those with Jordanian official birth certificates and citizenship cards. Some even have Jordanian passports though out of date. This is the truth as Jordan conquered these areas after they invaded with five or six other Arab nations in 1948 attempting to erase Israel on her very first morning of existence. Jordan annexed these lands illegally and was only recognized by Britain and Pakistan as even the Arab League refused to recognize Jordan’s annexation of Israeli lands. Israel liberated these lands and the Jews which Jordan had thrown from their homes returned to find their homes gifted to Jordanians with connections to the Jordanian government and their businesses looted and destroyed. Many of the residents in these areas were from the other side of the Jordan River and moved to Judea and Samaria as the prices for property and homes was lower. These lands should have reverted to Israeli rule and the people who one week earlier were Jordanians in good standing should have been deported to Jordan as their being Jordanian made them illegal occupants on Israeli land.

 

Such mass emigrations were common throughout the early and middle Twentieth Century with the most famous being the Pakistan-Indian exodus which also saw great amounts of violence and many of the emigrants paid with their lives as the Hindus and Muslims were less than enamored with one another and both had their differences with the Buddhists who did their best to remain neutral and detached as is their way in this world. Israel is a very different place when one takes the effort to find the real truth underneath the hyperventilating and the lies screamed and protests of events and acts which never occurred. Given half a chance, Israel would like nothing more than to be allowed her natural and granted borders decided by the San Remo Conference minus Gaza as Israel surrendered that to the Palestinian Authority who lost it in a coup to a terror group, Hamas. As far as Hamas is concerned, it would be nice to be rid of them but they have so poisoned the minds of their people that they could not be incorporated into Israel without years of reeducation, something Israel would rather not have to do, so replacing Hamas with a governance not dedicated to the death of every Israel and every Jew worldwide would simply be the start to a long process.

 

Dreams are nice but reality will slap you awake every day you try to live a dream, so perhaps it is best to live with reality and go from there. As far as allowing a second Muslim state be established in any part of Judea and Samaria, Israel knows as well as Mahmoud Abbas that such would become another Hamas ruled area and Abbas and many of the other political leaders and societal leadership are fully aware that the first order of business under Hamas would be their heads removed or other accident. These are our truths and there is nothing else to add really, the lies will continue and the truth, as always, must be dug from beneath the layers of hate and lies spread to defame. These layers of hate and lies are simply made stronger as anti-Semitism blinds more people through the hatred which is older than any other on Earth.
