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.

Thanks to the economic and other sanctions which have hobbled the Iranian economy to the point, about eighteen months ago, it resembled a dying man crawling on his belly in tattered pants and the shreds of his shirt, shoes scuffed to the point that their original color was indistinguishable and two vultures already discussing which would get which of the choicest remains, had Iran at the brink of civil revolt. That was when President Obama held back door negotiations where he released some of the most effective of the sanctions which brought the distant oasis to the parched lips of the Iranian economy saving them to make the better deal. It is that deal President Obama, the hero of the Iranians government, is claiming is the best deal and the only option outside of war. But is this claim of peace in our time really just peace for a while in our time? The comparisons between the Munich Accords of 1938 and now President Obama is desperately seeking the same adulation for this close relative to another situation of a nation spreading its tentacles and preparing for war and barely even concealing their arming and their aspirations which have been laid out in writing. The desires for world conquest and the elimination of the Jewish People was laid out step for step by Adolph Hitler in Mein Kampf and the Iranian Shiites (and also the Sunnis just to be fair and even; after all we would not want to take sides now, would we?) in the Quran and the Hadiths where the world is divided between ‘Dar al-Islam’ (Arabic: دار الإسلام‎) which translates to House of Islam and ‘Dar al-Harb’ (Arabic: دار الحرب) which translates to House of War. The followers of Islam are instructed to continue their struggle to spread their religion until it becomes the only religion practiced anywhere in the world. There are many Muslims residing in Western nations who refute any charges that Islam is to be spread ‘by the sword’ should more passive means prove unproductive and there remain some who adamantly refuse to accept Islam which is simply intolerable.

 

Then there is the Islamic State which has denuded entire cities and swaths of lands in which they have taken control of those who practiced any religion other than not only Islam but their very narrowly defined version of Sunni Islam. The marauders of the Islamic State may have been the Junior Varsity in the eyes of United States President Obama but are anything but the Junior Varsity when it comes to torture and coming up with ever more imaginative ways to ever more slowly murder their victims making sure that they suffered the most mental anguish, even if not the maximum pain, as they progressed from beheadings to burning alive to slowly being lowered in a steel cage into water to drown victims and other horrors and then posted their murderous ways using them as some form of sick recruiting tool. What is even more disturbing are the numbers of those who have rushed from across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the Western World to join the Islamic State. The only productive news concerning Iran is they oppose the Islamic State and desire to eliminate this horror from the world. But then one must ask themselves, is replacing the Islamic State horrors with Iranian, Syrian and Hezballah horrors really a step in the right direction or simply replacing one murderous and fearsome army turned government with another murderous government using its army.

 

These are the leaders of a nation of approximately seventy-eight-million-five-hundred-thousand largely Shia Muslims of which the vast majority are what are referred to as “Twelvers” with the remainder of the population being also largely Muslims following Sunni Islam. The remaining under one-percent of Iranians follows the following religions in order from largest to least; Bahá’í, Gnostic, Christian, Yarsanism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, and least but with a very nice Synagogue, the Yusef Abad synagogue in Tehran pictured below, Judaism. Interestingly, there are more Jews of Iranian heritage residing in the United States than remain in Iran which according to the 2011 Iranian census stated this threatened populations of Jews at eight-thousand-seven-hundred-fifty-six souls the majority spread between merely ten families, six of them related by marriage. There are those who inflate the numbers of Jews remaining in Iran to over one-hundred-thousand largely in an attempt to portray Iran as an accepting nation granting equal rights to non-Muslims despite the fact that the minorities walk quietly and taking care to be aware of their surroundings at all times and making sure to keep their heads bowed and their gaze fixates on the ground before them and to never under any circumstance stare any Shiite Muslim in the eyes and to always speak in hushed tones speaking in slow and respectful manners and subservient language never to sound challenging or to ever, ever appear as an equal lest one be reported to the police for such an affront and pay the price for challenging their superiors. There is a very good and solid description of life in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution for Jews and other minorities given by Karmel Melamed, an award-winning, internationally published journalist and attorney based in Southern California who writes the Iranian American Jews blog. This article titled ”The Iranian-Jewish Tragedy in Iran” which gives the chilling view which the Western World needs to understand before they permit the fascist, supremacist dictatorial leadership to once again, in the brief history from 1900 to the present, to allow a cancer which believes they have a right to destroy the world in order to save the world. The history of Iran in that same time period just might give people some pause to realize the direction Iran has taken since 1900 and the path is chilling.

The brightened tiles and golden hue will unfortunately turn a pale shadow of itself as there will be no prayers to give her the joys she had exalted in over her years.

Iran did not exist in the year 1900 as all the way back then it had a name that most will recognize and for the Jews had a varied history where it went from savior to creeping to the edge of committing genocide against the Jewish People except for the bravery of one Jewess, Queen Esther. All the way back as recently as March 20, 1935 the nation was known as Persia. This name of Persia could be traced back to Cyrus the Great, the leader of Persia who conquered Babylonia and granted the Jews the right to return to their homelands and rebuild their holy Temple which many Jews chose to do while some of their brethren remained in Persia. Years later when Persia was ruled by King Ahasuerus (Xerxes I) the Grand Vizier, Haman the Agagite persuaded King Ahasuerus that the Jews were plotting against his rule and needed to be dealt with. This seems to be a repeating theme and almost always leads to someone coming up with the idea that murdering the Jews will make their nation greater, and the order was issued. The problem was that after the King created a vacancy after executing his wife for refusing his orders and generally insulting his authority for which he held a beauty contest, hopefully a contest which took into consideration more than beauty as that had worked so well with Vashti. Well, he chose Esther who the night before the order was to be carried out bravely entered the King’s court without having been invited, punishable by death, begged the King’s attention and broke the news that if his Grand Vizier Haman’s order was to be carried out they could start with her as she was also a Jew. Haman and his sons were executed on the very gallows they would have murdered the Jews of Persia. Haman, Hamas, I wonder, could there be a connection?

 

On March 21, 1935 Reza Shah Pahlavi officially renamed Persia changing the name to Iran. There are two very different theories for the change. One refers to numerous ancient references varying from the Sassanid, the Zoroastrianism, the Romans and other historical references mostly to deal with language. A more modern take takes the date and the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany and the theory of a master race, the Aryans, or the Persian word for the racial designation, Iran. The actual reason is likely was only honestly known to Reza Shah Pahlavi and he will not be giving us any hints. Another item while we are comparing modern day Iran and the Aryans from World War II as a potential enemy; the only war which Iran had fought directly was, to their credit, something which will seldom be found in these editorials in any source, was as a result of Iraqi initiated assaults as Saddam Hussein attempted to grab the Iranian oil fields. That war lasted near to a decade where some of the most horrific and destructive tactics were utilized by both sides. Despite the Iraqi military’s reputation as one of the largest and best trained and equipped in the Middle East outside Israel, Iran held them at bay and often made gains but eventually the war resembled a World War I trench warfare than world war highly mobile and technical war. The most remarked attack in this horrific war came when the Iranians needed to clear minefields and needed to do so with some degree of speed so a fairly brutish and head-on system was necessitated. The Iranians initially attempted to stampede mules and donkeys across the minefields but once the first animal struck a mine the others would scatter and run back the direction they had come from. This led to one of the most disturbing tactics where children were volunteered and upon their death their parents were financially compensated for their patriotic donation to the war efforts. The children were given plastic keys which they were told would unlock the door to heaven for them. In response to the condition of the returned remains led to the wrapping of the children in wet blankets so as to retain their parts when they hit a mine. Such fanaticism and willingness to sacrifice for the religious leadership was horrific and also showed a commitment almost beyond rational belief and which shows the length the Iranians might resort to against an enemy.

 

The question remains as to whether President Obama is saving the world from a war with Iran with his deal or allowing Iran to build up their military and potentially arm themselves with an arsenal of nuclear weapons, potentially thermonuclear warheads and the ICBMs with which to deliver them anywhere on the globe. They may even develop ICBM missiles capable of irregular flight characteristics making anti-missile systems near useless in preventing their striking their targets. Additionally, the Iranians could readily develop cruise missiles and master the ability to launch them from freighter container ships as they have done with some of their fifteen-hundred to two-thousand mile largely unguided rockets, or possibly a poorly guided missile. Of course, if the rocket has a nuclear warhead, exactly how accurate does one need to be? I mean, as long as you strike within a few miles from the intended region and, just as with hand grenades and horseshoes, close counts. What is most worrying is how the situation came to this juncture with the sanctions being weakened by President Obama allowing Iran to continue to limp along while the President and the State Department Team, which included a number of the same people who were responsible for the agreement with North Korea which led directly to their becoming nuclear armed nation, and Secretary of State Kerry appeared to trip over each other seeing who could surrender point after point and succumb to Iranian demands the fastest. The sign that Iran is about to use a fair amount of funds which will represent but a drop in the bucket of the one-hundred-fifty-billion-dollars being unfrozen and gifted to the Mullahs and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei as they have already made arrangement to purchase Russian S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics and finally, two-hundred-fifty highly-advanced Russian Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 heavy-fighter-bombers as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI tanker aircraft; or simply put, Iran is purchasing an entire air force and air defense systems taking them from almost no air power worth mentioning to air superiority by comparison and potentially air superiority over the Kurds, Islamic State, and almost every nation in Northern Africa and many European nations as well. As the nations which Iran is most likely to face if they decide to expand their borders and acquire the airfields and staging areas of southern Iraq, as it appears that President Obama is fully supporting the IRGC forces and eventually other Iranian military forces to operate from within Iraq and Syria against the Islamic State with the United States providing air strikes and air support operations one has to wonder how President Obama might react should Iran decide to turn their forces southward and strike across the Kuwaiti and Saudi Arabian oil fields in response to what they could claim was mistreatment of Shiite Muslims by the two nations after incidents were instigated.

 

The other front we can expect to come from Iran is for their expanding the influence of Shia Islam across formerly Sunni strongholds spreading their control over Madrassas potentially replacing Wahhabi Madrassas after they have swarmed across the oil fields, complete their control through the Houthis of Yemen and then using a pincher attack from the north and the south in order to capture Mecca and Medina and thus controlling the heart of Islam. This would also complete Iranian control of the Red Sea and the Bab El-Mandab Strait. From that jumping off point it would not be difficult for Iran to then establish a beachhead from which to operate starting in Somalia and spreading from there through Eretria and Djibouti in order to spread through the Sudan and from Iraq and Saudi Arabia into the Sinai thus being on Egypt’s southern and eastern borders. Should Iran also desire to place a substantial force injected into Syria to assist Bashir al-Assad retaking the lands he has lost and using Hezballah to cement their control over Lebanon then Iran could have a northern and southern fronts on Israel and even more troubling should they also gain access to Gaza supplanting Hamas and Islamic Jihad in controlling the area. We can also expect that Iran will fortify their ground forces with purchases of armor most likely light armor to facilitate fast swarm style attacks overwhelming any defense an opponent would be likely to have at any front relying on lighter resistance and by overwhelming the initial positions and driving deeper into any nation they intended to strike thus appearing unstoppable and gaining a perceived position of strength which would also give the Islamic State considerable challenge especially when one considers that Iran will have a very well-armed air force, something completely missing in the Islamic State’s arsenal of abilities. The likelihood that President Obama would take any position opposing any Iranian moves in the entirety of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) as such would be viewed as Iran simply doing exactly what President Obama desired, Iran stabilizing the entirety of the Islamic world, and what better way of being the hegemonic power than to also control all of the valuable lands and suppressing every potential adversary.

 

It would not be a complete surprise if should Iran manage to take control in Egypt that the Muslim Brotherhood might ‘see the writing on the wall,’ so to speak, and decide they had been in error about the lineage and correct successors of Muhammad and turn to back a Shia Islam. The truth is that there will either be a war with Iran or Iran will bring the war to each and every corner of the world one site at a time. The only question is at what point will their expansions be one bite too many and at what disadvantage will the world be in when facing the Iranian threat. History will point to the past decade and a half as the period when Iran could have been collared with minor losses and as being an opportunity squandered placing the world at risk. Once again, it appears the greatest threat building in the world is being left to Israel to stop. Let’s hope that Israel gets the necessary support of those others facing the same dangers or be willing to take on the task themselves. This is one time we can know that the United States has nobody’s back or if they do, then it is the worst of all possible scenarios placing Washington solidly behind Iran as President Obama had tilted his entire time in office, even with his efforts to place the Muslim Brotherhood ruling Egypt or turning a blind eye to Erdogan suppressing Turkey turning it into a Sharia state and potentially joining with Iran. At the very least, a combining of the regions and its people into an alliance of Israel, the Kurds, the Druze and the various Christian strongholds be brought together and aided to eliminate the Islamic State, thus putting Iran on notice that they should carefully consider their next moves as they will make all the difference in the world. As a result of removing the Islamic State, regions of Syria and northern Iraq will now be known as a state for the Kurds in the area originally promised the Kurds for Kurdistan at the end of World War I but not fulfilled due to the Mosul oil fields and politics as usual. The Druze will likely be granted some degree of autonomy within those areas in Syria where they reside and the refugees should attempt to put their lives and country back together and learn to live with a multi-ethnic nation. Further, as Hezballah has shown so much concern for Syria perhaps they can live there and maybe the Bekaa Valley but the rest of Lebanon is to be a Christian refuge free and resolute to act with favor on the Christians of the entire area and make a nation from the ruins left by Hezballah. Such a solution would be so nice and clean which is why it is unlikely to come into fruition. As Winston Churchill told the British Parliament “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” and additionally from his writings from “The Gathering Storm,” “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds are against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.” May some heed the warnings that many in the leadership positions in Israel be joined by those in Europe, in France, in Germany, in Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and even Greece raise their voices and call for those who cherish the G0d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob not succumb to the forces of those of Abraham, Ishmael and Mohammad, Amen.
