Palestinians and Israeli Arabist Jihadist War

 

Mahmoud Abbas has two faces, one that screams ‘peace, peace but there is no peace’ to the West and they dutifully blame Israel for not simply giving Abbas all the lands he desires. Nobody ever attempts to discover the land Abbas demands as if they did they might soon catch their first glimpse of his other face. That is the face that demands ‘jihad, jihad, kill the Jews’ and take all the land from the river to the sea, Palestine will kill until free. That face is easy to find if one just translates his speeches from Arabic to English, French, whatever language the Western politicians need to understand what more and more Israelis have learned. There is a reason nobody from Europe or the United States translate Abbas speeches and the lessons taught using the textbooks dripping with Jew hatred that the Western nations are paying to provide and poison another generation and guarantee there will be no peace as long as the Jews are alive. There are those who believe that the reason nothing is ever demanded of Abbas is because all too many of the political class agree with what Abbas is instigating and know that as long as they berate Israelis and blame only Israel for the lack of peace then Abbas will kill some more Jews for them. One hopes that such is not the reality and that peace is actually what all sides desire and ignorance is the only reason that no demands are made of Abbas and the West actually does not know that the Charter never was altered and still calls for the death of all Israelis and the liberation from the river to the sea and nothing less is acceptable to Abbas or the Palestinians as they are assured by the lack of any real actions demanding both sides compromise and that all demands for concessions have and apparently always will be demanded solely of Israel. As long as they are never called upon to compromise and continue to vocally demand every inch of land with the erasure of Israel and her Jewish population then all must be on their side. One can only be confused that the Israelis have never bolted and rejected this status quo. Perhaps that time is way overdue.

Perhaps the United States will finally elect a President who understands the lies upon which all previous Presidents have followed and finally break this fatal trend and strike out on a more realistic and fair path which demands both sides meet in the middle and that the Palestinians at long last actually change their charter such that it no longer demands the death of the Jews and the complete destruction of Israel replacing it with Palestine. That would require that the United States elect the candidate who would break with the past and actually seek a real peace and if Abbas refuses to compromise to simply walk away and free Israel to do that which removes the jihadi threat that Abbas poses and end the cycle of violence which is always initiated by Abbas and his band of jihadists. That would mean the removal of Abbas, Fatah, the PLO and the entire alphabet soup of terror mongers and allow those Arabs who would desire to live in peace to remain and those who act against Israel be deported and never permitted to return. This would also allow for replacing the texts and the hate that they teach and instead teach academics which would train the Arabs for gainful employment and a future of freedom and productivity. This would finally give the Arabs in Judea and Samaria to improve their lives and have something to live for which would have to be better than training them such that they only know how to die for Abbas and his war which he will never fight as he demands of them and he will not throw his life away attacking soldiers as he has the youth who he indoctrinates on hatred and chasing the afterlife as if that is the best future these youth can desire, it is criminal and is enough of a reason to rid the Arab society of his poisonous hate. But which of the four leading Presidential candidates would best walk that new path?

 

Since the Israeli leadership feels with good reason that Israel is dependent on the United States for too much to make a go without United States aid at this time, there is a sense of indentured servitude. One of the main reasons that this is so dates back to the deal where Israel accepted the United States promise to provide air superiority for Israel in the Middle East and bought Israel subservience with F15s and F16s if Israel gave up their designing and production of the Lavi fighter which was similar to the F16 but did not have the F15 strike capabilities. The F15s made that deal near impossible to pass up and Israel fell into the trap of dependence on the United States for their fighter and most other aircraft and the Israeli aircraft industry retooled to research, design and produce other military and civilian products. Now it would likely take Israel five to ten years to retool, design and start to produce her own fifth generation or even sixth generation, whatever capabilities and design features those airframes might entail. Likely the sixth generation fighters would be such that one pilot and gunner would control five other birds as well as their own and fly their own cover, and thus a dozen airmen would control thirty-six attack aircraft and with 360o helmets as the canopies of all the aircraft would be solid carbon fiber and Kevlar composite formed under aluminum skin making the aircraft bullet resistant and that much more difficult to shoot down. These aircraft would also have laser intercept such as the Elbit Systems C-MUSIC anti-missile Protection retooled and upgraded to divert and destroy all versions of antiaircraft missiles, heat seeking and radar lacking as well as ground-to-air and air-to-air thus removing much of the need for aircraft to need to use avoidance maneuvers as their inboard systems would remove the necessity. This could be just one of the systems incorporated along with stealth and low frequency anti-radar systems making the aircraft ultimately improbable to intercept or shoot down. But such designing and resting would take likely a dozen years to design and put into production and in the meantime Israel would need to depend on the F35JSF fighters she has already contracted for with the United States.

 

Meanwhile, what would the future most likely be like depending on each of the four Presidential frontrunners? First off, let’s take Donald Trump. He is the most difficult to gauge. Would we get the debate Donald Trump who distanced himself placing wiggle room between his foreign policies and Israel or would we get the AIPAC Donald Trump who proclaimed the United States had no closer friend and to whom he pledged his unfaltering support. The truth probably lies somewhere in between and just might be better on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays while colder on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, who knows. One thing likely is whatever the relations, they would constantly be fluid which would mean that no might not always mean no, it might mean ask again next week and remember which are your good days. So, Donald is what he will be on many issues, a puzzle which will develop and change with time and mood, not necessarily a great thing.

Then we have Hillary Clinton. We got a good measure of her approach when she lectured Prime Minister Netanyahu for close to an hour if not more about how when President Obama or herself told him to jump the only response they want to hear was, “How high?” Hillary did pay Israel some lip service when she was running, or should we say buying and collecting her consolation prize of Senator from New York. That was supposed to give her the Presidency in 2008 but apparently somebody was not in on that arrangement so she got another consolation prize instead, Secretary of State, which again was supposed to prepare her for a cakewalk to the Presidency but apparently somebody did not get the memo again, imagine that. So, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation now being a wholly owned subsidiary of Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) will not exactly be all that enamored with Israel or Egypt and there will be more contribution likely coming from Iran just to complicate matters. Israel can expect tire tracks up and down the Prime Minister’s back with a Hillary Presidency along with more telephone berating demanding he toe the line and know his place. Should there be an election in Israel we can also expect the entire Democrat election machinery to set up camp in Tel Aviv and work diligently to elect whoever a coalition backing either the Labor Party or Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid Party depending upon who promises to be the best little soldier doing whatever they are bid to do.

 

Hillary Clinton

 

Next we will discuss Ted Cruz. Ted is the easiest of the candidates to predict only rivaled by Bernie Sanders. Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders are polar opposites when it comes to Israel. Ted Cruz has stated and can be believed that he will invite Prime Minister Netanyahu to the White House as his first act after being sworn in. The next item on Ted Cruz’s list will be setting in motion a grand White House dinner and possibly grand black tie ball. The meal will be Kosher and the prayer before eating will be performed by a Rabbi of note and probably recommended by the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA). Ted Cruz might just be the President who breaks with the past and ignores the State Department and might even clean out the State department which has often acted as the main functionary for America’s enemies. They appeared to back the Soviet Union and once it collapsed, they quickly swung over to support the Arabist and jihadists. Ted will be the first President to completely ignore Mahmoud Abbas and his litany of complaints and back Israel in their fight against the same Jihadist enemies the United States and the free world are facing. There is little if any difference between Hamas and Islamic State, Hezballah and the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps), Fatah and the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), Islamic Jihad and al Qaeda. These are all either Sunni or Shiite jihadist movements all of which desire an entire world under the boot of Islam; they just differ over which flavor of Islam, rocky road or peanut butter fudge ripple. Ted Cruz fully understands this and if he is smart and can get Allen West for either Secretary of Defense or, if cleaning out the State department is on the to do list, Secretary of State. With Col. West Israel will have another friend in high places.

This leaves Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders was born Jewish, or at least into what was a Jewish family. Bernie Sanders himself is not all that caught up in the Jewish thing; actually he appears to run from it as fast and far as he is able. On Israel Bernie Sanders is the one candidate who makes Hillary appear friendly to Israel. Bernie while in the Senate voted to defund Israel. He would quite possibly decide to save money by cancelling the Israeli order for F35JSF fifth generation fighters. He would then likely cut all aid to Israel as well as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and the rest of the Middle East right before he slashed the Defense budget seeing it all as unnecessary and monies which could be better used correcting income inequality. Bernie would possibly cut all aid to the Palestinians until the leftist and his friends from the socialist camp demanded he continue or possibly increase the aid to these people as they deserved every penny and were not getting sufficient because if the United States supported them half as well as they had Israel all these years the Arab-Palestinian Israel conflict would have been resolved and Palestine would be freed from the river to the sea as it deserves. Bernie Sanders would be a disaster initially for Israel making them potentially endangered for the immediate future but fortunately Hezballah is quite preoccupied and Hamas is nowhere near strong enough to take on Israel and the Islamic State has sufficient problems holding what they have gained and also are in no position to attack Israel. Should Bernie Sanders walk away from supporting Israel it would take Israel less than a year to reinforce their position and be ready for any challenge and could then work on designing their next generation fighter. In the long run Israel would be ahead and more self-reliant and would actually owe Bernie a thank you visit where the Israelis could give him a demonstration of the new Israeli fighter which was going to make many decide to purchase from Israel and forgo the limitations and the leash which the F15JSF has connecting them permanently to the United States which requires regular uploads and downloads feeding the United States every bit of information on how the fighter was used, where it flew, when it flew and any other data including weapons loads that it carried on each mission and if they were deployed and any of the armaments fired and if so at what and whether they hit target or missed. Surely nobody could be concerned about the F35JSF relating such data during maintenance which it would require regularly. So, by cutting Israel off, Bernie Sanders might actually be providing Israel with the incentive to become self-reliant and self-sufficient for her own defense for the immediate and longer future.

 

Bernie Sanders

 

The one thing which was obvious from the start of the American primary elections, the only party which had any chance of offering a candidate who would back Israel even slightly was the Republicans. This stands in stark contrast to elections past where supporting Israel was a guaranteed given in word even if action was less convincing. Things have turned in the United States and we are witnessing the slow but inevitable erosion of the American Israeli love affair. The marriage is without a doubt heading for a divorce and Israel had best get their arms around this inevitability and begin to make whatever adjustments will become necessary and required. The first is get prepared to at the least make their own aircraft as American jets may not be forthcoming after the F35JSF, and that is a fact, not conjecture. We know not how much longer the Republicans will be able to be trusted to support Israel, but once they slide the end will be in sight.

Why Israel Must Ignore the White House as Should the World

 

White House spokesman Josh Earnest read his part and I can only hope he was wincing with each word, and if not then he is unfeeling and dead between the ears or plain evil as his boss. The statement read, “The United States remains deeply concerned by the recent violence and escalating tensions surrounding Haram al-Sharif, or the Temple Mount, as it’s also known. The United States, as we routinely do, strongly condemn all acts of violence, particularly in that location that’s so sacred to many, many people. It is absolutely critical that all sides exercise restraint, refrain from provocative actions and rhetoric, and preserve unchanged the historic status quo on the Haram al-Sharif Temple Mount, both in word and in practice.” Let’s take the crazy train and try to understand this statement for what it is worth.

 

First and foremost, the referencing to the Temple Mount as the secondary name tells us that despite it being a slight interpretation from what is in the hardbound book “The Audacity of Hope” I will first give the direct quote which states “Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Well, the political winds are ugly and are being made that way by the rock throwers and not their targets who are the ones actually losing their homelands and President Obama is standing with them. The primary use of the name Haram al-Sharif tells all as that is not the name used by the world in which President Obama is presumably their main spokesperson.

 

Of course we all realize that President Obama is not the representative of the American people who stand with Israel by a sizeable margin and the supporters of Israel are predominantly Christians who far outnumber the Jewish supporters of Israel. I am glad to be able to claim that the majority of the most devout and honest supporters of Israel are Christians. A friend here coordinates and facilitates visits by Christian groups including many clergy and when they arrive they do not care so much about seeing anything but Jerusalem. Sure they also desire to visit Nazareth and Bethlehem but mostly come to support Israel and be able to tell others that they have visited Israel and it is alive, vibrant and a miracle every day it continues to defy the odds and exist surrounded as she is by a sea of pure hatred beyond descriptions. Many have done their homework and ask to visit the graves of venerable Rabbis from Israeli history, and we are talking Torah luminaries from over two-thousand years ago and then some. I am embarrassed to say that many of these Christians have a deeper knowledge of my Bible and the historic sages whose graves they demand to visit in place of any scheduled tour; they just want to pray with the Israelis and show their support. What can be said other than thank you my friends.

 

Back to the White House statement echoing the Europeans all who cast equal blame on both sides for the violence if we are fortunate and heap the majority of the blame on Israel for the violence. They know that the supposed violence by Israel are the police attempting to keep order and that the violence is instigated at the directives and desires of Mahmoud Abbas and the others who wish to destroy Israel, murder her people and then dance on their graves. The example of shared responsibility for the violence can be demonstrated with the horrific death of Alexander Levlovitz, the Israeli man who was stoned to death while driving home from Rosh Hashanah dinner with friends and family. His violence was driving while in an elevated state of joy when rocks flew through his windshield causing him to lose control of the car and he died in the ensuing crash. Others in the car came away with varying degree of injuries and none in the car got out of this murderous act unscathed. What was the crime for which Alexander Levlovitz was murdered? He was murdered because he was a Jew and an Israeli Jews on top of that. He was murdered by hatred so deep that it brings out an animal lust for the kill in those so inflicted. What is sad are the number of Western leaders who feel it necessary to equate keeping the law and imposing order and going about life with the murderous rage demonstrated daily by the Muslims who are throwing the rocks, bricks, Molotov Cocktails, cinderblocks and other objects at any vehicle sporting an Israeli license plate. For your information, the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) issues its own license plates which are different in color to the Israeli plates. The PA also issues drivers’ licenses and have autonomy over their sectors of lands which are within Areas A and B and thanks to Europeans buying land for Arabs and building their houses for them and making sure to move them into Area C which is legally Israeli. Increasingly they are also imposing their control in all areas and have even had PA security escort rioters onto the Temple Mount.

 

One might be tempted to inquire as to why the Western leadership would be so enamored with the Palestinian cause and always blame both sides equally unless they are handed a reason to blame only Israel. It might be something so simple as that they know that talking or demanding civility from the Arab Palestinians is a total waste of time and effort so in order to appear as if they are actually doing anything to help they demand Israel prove their civility in the face of barbarisms. They demand of Israel as it is the only side there is any hope of getting a humane result and thus appear to be doing something. Their affliction is to be able to appear to have made some difference even if that difference only serves to worsen the situation and make its eventual resolution that much less likely to be ended politely. Add onto that the fact that some may be acting out of their deep distrust or even hatred of the Jews and their actual preference to support the Arabs as they are the victims in the leftist mindset and thus must be aided while Israel is viewed as the imperial Western nation simply because it is a modern state. Below is a video of the fighting from within the al-Aqsa Mosque as they deploy from the safety of the Mosque the police are overwhelmed by the assault.

 

 
 
Many of Israel’s greatest detractors will pose the problem as the helpless Arab Palestinians need their assistance against the modern military and well trained police of Israel as the Arab Palestinians are the weaker side in numbers and equipment. This is the liberal mind-trap where every problem is broken into two neat parts, the advanced nation against the primitive culture and they will protect the more primal and primitive side completely unaware that eventually such support will bring these primitives to their doorstep and then what? I will tell you what be showing the greatest visual answer possible. When the very same primitives approached the oh so liberal borders of Europe the walls went up, the doors slammed shut, the police in riot gear along with some military were deployed and their borders were sealed tighter than new Tupperware lids. That is how the oh so liberal I support the tribal barbarians over the Israelis as the Arabs are so needing of our sympathy but not in my country, oh no. The Arabs teeming into Europe ran straight into their tolerance for living what they preach to Israel, just giving these poor unfortunates a place to live as you are on their lands. Well, they have now claimed Europe and they claim it as theirs and will fabricate how their ancestors lived in Europe more than five thousand years ago and were the more civilized until the blond haired blue eyed heathens came and pushed them into the desert in which they now live. What will the Europeans do when this claim is leveled against them?

 

That is an easy question to answer, Europe will do what Europeans are best at, they will rise up and slaughter whomever they perceive as responsible for the sad state of affairs which are coming and will continue to come now that the European leaders initially put out a welcome mat. What needs to be understood is that the Europeans did not expect the throngs to swarm over their borders and were expecting a few hundreds, not hundreds of thousands as their welcome mats produced. There is another little something which the Europeans will grab onto next as the majority of these refugees are now claiming they are not just Arabs, they are Palestinians Arabs. Apparently this did not get the response they expected as all they have seen is that the Europeans support the poor Arab Palestinians with great veneration of their cause and sympathy for their plight. Of course such goodwill is only dispensed from a comfortable distance, up close, well, not so much. The other reason for their Arab Palestinian claims is their plan B should Europe not be the wonderful lands they expect as then they will walk all the way back to the borders with Israel demanding their piece of the lands when Israel falls. Of course, perhaps the Europeans should get used to the throngs at their doorstep demanding their piece of European heaven where there is money for nothing and your chips (French fries) for free. Once Israel is felled then Europe is next and, as we have witnessed this past few weeks, then we will watch as the teeming hordes descend upon the gates and walls of Europe and then the United States.

 

Israel understands the reasons that they are refusing to be hospitable to these refugees as you fear what their effect will be on your civilization down the road when their youth are radicalized and told they are not being give the good jobs because of racist Western Europeans and how they need to take control of the government and only by supplanting the indigenous religious freedoms and forcing Islam on all the inhabitants will they receive justice. Yes, Europe, they will demand justice which will mean only one thing, that they are deserving and you are only permitted to give and give until you drop. And if you do not give in to their demands they will behead you, very simple, their way or the grave, that is the choice. Does any amongst you think Israel does not know what her plight would be like if they were not strong enough to survive on their own terms. Below is a shopping cart filled with bricks to be used in the rioting with police and security personnel.

Europeans had best get this little concept into their minds and prepare for the inevitable. These clashes can only end in one way, one side vanquishes the other. If the Israelis survive then the rest of the Western culture will continue. If Israel falls then Europe will start being chipped at and slowly subsumed by an Arab Muslim assault and eventual take-over by Islamic radicals. They will use your democratic system to gain control of a city or two through threat or simply voting their way into positions through which they can force Sharia into the records as the true law of the lands. Then starts the convert or die part of their equation. Eventually your eighty percent will dwindle to the point of extinction as more and more people flee to what they term as safer grounds. That begs the question as to how far will the politically correct people actually go in forming this noose to be placed around their necks? There is always the other choice, namely that if Israel fails then they will be knocking down your fences and swarming into Europe in numbers which make this stampede look like a small-town parade. Eventually will come the rock throwing followed by firebombs and then gun shots and then starts the real demonstrations with hundreds and then thousands demanding the actions of the non-believers be acceptable in the eyes of Islam. Women will be forced to wear conservative clothing or face being gang raped as any woman dressed showing that much skin is simply asking for whatever she gets even to include gang rapes. It does not have to be this way and it will only be exactly this scenario should Europeans continue to turn a blind eye to the obvious.

 

It is possible for Islam to be as mild, unassuming and private as any other religion in Western civilization. To achieve such a goal political Islam, which is practiced throughout the Middle East, must be defeated and their nations must be brought kicking and screaming into the twenty-first-century. The Muslims of Azerbaijan have a form of modern Islam which is compatible with Western democracies and freedom of religion permitted and even endorsed. There will always be those exceptions, those throwbacks who practice the Islam of conquest, the Caliphate, the original Islam which set out to conquer the world and which has many adherents still holding on to that dream. Western powers need to support leaders like Egyptian President al-Sisi with their call for modernizing Islam so it can fit within the modern societal belief in multi-cultural freedoms. Basically, the time has come to have the adherents of Islam return to their Mecca written Qurans and depart their Medina written Qurans. For an explanation of the difference please read our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? Islam is heading towards a crisis or the rest of the world is about to surrender to Allah’s swords, those are the choices and there is no third path.

 

As far as Israel is concerned, the choice is simple and comes down to there being only space for one nation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. That nation can be a beacon of freedom and liberty or it can be a nation of oppressions and retrograde culture having absolutely no ability to modernize or to leave the path of conflict with the aim of bringing the world to their brand of Islam. What is actually nice about this is the choice will be decided as to how difficult and at what price the eventual winner will emerge. What is not so nice is there is a definitive possibility that the barbarian tribal nation bent on world conquest could end up the victor. With European aid or without the more modern multicultural though predominantly Jewish nation will prevail in the end even without Western assistance or perhaps despite such help which has forced Israel to settle for partial victories knowing full well that only a complete and demoralizing defeat will prevent the next war launched by the Arabs when they feel they have the advantage. That is why Israel fought so bitterly and hard to defeat the Iran treaty as the Israelis see it as accommodating the Iranians and selling Israeli safety down the river. Time will tell but the one promise which we can make is how goes Israel, so goes Europe and the remainder of the Western world. Yes, my friends, it is really that simple and the hordes sweeping over Europe despite the attempts to prevent it stands as all the proof any reasoning man could predict and see coming from a mile away. This invasion was the initial attempt to plant sufficient copies of Arab Palestinian malcontents across Europe making it ready for things to come. That would be a revolution which would seek to erase all the borders in Europe and make it an Islamic fortress where all remaining within these walls will soon pass and the doors will once again fly open but likely only briefly as the former Muslims after securing the good life will not want their apple-cart overturned by the same style invasion which predicated their becoming an Islamic stronghold. That is your choice our friends in Europe and we hope so deeply you choose well. Possibly both our survivals may be tied to finding the answer to this conundrum, so please choose wisely and after some deep taking stock in what Europe is and who the people were who made it into the place it is today, decide what you want for Europe to be in its future. Then consider how large a threat is sitting on your shores and borders and choose wisely or suffer the consequences for a very long time.
