Reflective Spurs Reactive

 

Reflective and reactive sound similar enough and both are applied to an action that many people do not bother to differentiate between the two, they just dismiss them as two ways of getting to a similar result. Part of the reason behind this is our Western society has become so results oriented that the method of reaching results have been so compromised that we seem to believe that the means really do not matter. Such thinking is sloppy and undisciplined and the reason that many see no difference between reflective and reactive if they were to produce similar results. This reasoning, or lack thereof, is what leads many to measure the terror war now being waged against Israel by the numbers of dead largely and the numbers injured to a lesser extent. This is where the fact that more Arabs have died and less Jews that Israel must be doing something immoral as results are all that matter.

 

So let us take a moment and break down the particulars and discover the real importance of the differences between reflective and reactive. The dictionary defines reflective as “given to, marked by, or concerned with meditation or deliberation.” The dictionary defines reactive as “pertaining to or characterized by reaction, pertaining to or characterized by reactance.” Simplifying this down an act which is reflective is premeditated, planned and intentionally performed and reactive is unplanned reflex performed due to an external threat, stimulus, peril, provocation or incitement. In any situation where there are two related actions in a situation, one reflective and the other reactive, there is only one order the two acts can occur. The reflective act must be the initiating act and the reactive must be the following action as a response to the reflective or intentional action. These are the exact order which has been occurring in Israel with the terrorist actions being the reflective act, as they are premeditated and planned to assault Israelis, preferably Jews. Despite the target being general in nature, the action is still planned even if not to the exact target and the reaction to these assaults where somebody is attempting to stab innocent civilians and is stabbing one victim and then attempts to attack another and it is evident they will continue doing so until prevented, spurs the reactive action which often is a police or military individual or an armed civilian and often thus results in the death of the terrorist. Should the Arab terrorists, instead of deciding one morning to go and stab as many Israelis as possible until prevented from continuing, decide that there is more to living than there is to rewards in some paradise gained through murdering others; the entire pyramid would collapse from the bottom up. Unfortunately, these youths get themselves so worked-up and convinced they will receive rewards in heaven if they die while committing murderous terror actions such that the pleasures, often sexual in nature, will increase with the number of Jews or Israelis that they murder, with partial credit for maimed and injured; they have a double inspiration, one to murder Israeli civilians or soldiers (yes some attack armed soldiers or law enforcement officers as they just want to go straight to Islamic heaven) and continue attacking until martyred, killed to end their stabbings spree.

 

Some of the reactive actions have, as well as the terrorist act, have been caught on surveillance cameras. Part of the reason that more terrorists have been killed than Jews have been murdered is because some of these untrained terrorists attack people causing grievous wounds but survivable and the terrorist refuses to stop even if shot and injured. They continue to try and attack and attack until stopped permanently; they really live little other choice. Below is a video from October 13, 2015, where the terrorist makes his initial strike driving his car across the oncoming lane striking pedestrians until hitting a bus stop. The terrorist then exits the car with a hatchet or hand axe and starts smashing those he had just run over and then continues on to attack another victim when an armed civilian arrives and shoots the terrorist who continues to attempt to attack as he gets shot a second and third time. He still attempted to get up and after being shot again and eventually appears to be trying to return to his car either to escape or grab yet another weapon. He eventually died from his wounds if memory serves us well. He was driving his company provided vehicle and was presumably on the clock working and had a well-paying job within Israel inside the Green Line. One would have thought he might be the poster for success for coexistence between Jews and Arabs working together for the same company with equal standing, but apparently in some instances such opportunity is no contest against the constant feed of instigation by the Palestinian Authority on Arab radio and television broadcast from the autonomous Arab areas in Judea and Samaria and on social media. The instigation is a tried and useful method as the media provocations used are the exact same as was used by the Arab authorities in the late 1920s and through the 1930s by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem both from Arab areas and from strong radio facilities in the Balkans aimed into the Arab world with the assistance of the Nazis with whom the Mufti spent World War II. We discussed this at some greater depth in our article The New Anti-Semitism Palestinianism.

 

 

 

 

The difference between reflective actions as the instigator of reactive acts has to be used as a filter upon reading or hearing the news, editorials, commentary or anything regarding the Arab Israeli Conflict; and that is what this is as the entirety of the Arab world has been working to destroy Israel since the very morning Israel was founded in May 15, 1948 when seven Arab national armies invaded Israel intent on a genocidal conflict which they believed they would win in a matter of days if not hours. The war dragged on for close to two years before a final armistice was hammered out. The end result was Israel had lost control over parts of Judea and Samaria along with Eastern Jerusalem to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt. More wars followed and in each case Israel not only survived but took back the remainder of Judea and Samaria and the remainder of Jerusalem as well as Gaza. Israel also took the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. Israel made peace with Egypt and returned the Sinai but Egypt refused any offer to reoccupy Gaza allowing it to be returned to Israel as it was within the original boundaries. When peace was made with Jordan, Jordan relented the rest of Judea and Samaria as well as Jerusalem ending Jordanian occupation of Israeli lands thus ending the occupation of the lands which were a part of Israel on the morning before the combined armies attacked. The Mufti of Jerusalem encouraged the Arabs to leave Israel promising them within a few weeks they would return to a vanquished Zionist entity and share the spoils with the conquering heroes but something did not quite turn out as the Mufti had promised. The Jews lost the war as far as they lost territory, Gaza and East Jerusalem along with parts of Judea and Samaria but had survived and in a celebration of that survival they referred to the victory inaccurately as the Israeli War for Independence. The spirit of the latest Intifada, terror war, instigations or whatever one wishes to call these assaults on civilians by terrorists seeking dead Jews and their own martyrdom can be reflected in the images below which tell the tale more adequately than words could ever do.

Israel had independence at midnight and one second on May 15, 1948 and at that point, before the Arab armies invaded at dawn, the Israeli border included all of the Negev including Gaza and the Blue Line as the border with Lebanon is denoted and the Jordan River. The lands that the Arabs claim they lost to the Israelis because of the patrician as described in the General Assembly Resolution 181 which was the United Nations suggestion of a solution of granting the Arabs a second home sharing the lands which were promised the Zionists for them homeland after Jordan was cut from their original lands. When the Arab League refused that offer as they demanded what they are still demanding, including Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Iran, Saudi Arabia and many more nations, terrorist groups, NGOs, European politicians, American and Canadian Politicians, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon (or at least by his actions he favors such) and who knows who else or cares as there are sufficient known forces that any others really make little difference. The thing necessary to remember is that the Arab Armies attacking Israel that morning was a reflective action as any unprovoked attack of those proportions can be nothing else as accidentally attacking with multiple divisions of militaries from numerous nations’ rules accidental encroachment of Israel’s borders out of the equation and certifies such as a planned execution which was further backed by the threats made by the Mufti of Jerusalem on Jordanian and Egyptian radio and Arab radio within Israel played his threats and promises to those Arabs who would vacate Israel so the conquering armies could simply slaughter everybody they found. This proved true when after stopping a bus of doctors and nurses the Arab forces executed them on the spot as impure infidels not worthy of life. The reality is the Arab Palestinians led by Mahmoud Abbas have the blessings of numerous other national Arab leaders, Iran and nearly uncountable Arabs around the world which is why the cartoon below is so accurate.

Yes, we know Israel has won every war and has nuclear weapons just as Iran will have produced by the time President Obama leaves office and a superior number should another American President be chosen by sloganeering and pretending the world has not been affected by the absence of American leadership and continue the policies of ignoring the world and going back to sleep as was the standard by the United States only given up due to the Cold War. What the American people choose will have either a willing to take back their mantle of the lone super power or soon be destroyed by Iranian nuclear weapons used in a far more effective manner if you only have four or five EMP producing weapons with only an unsteady delivery system. The main wish is that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) do not explode into an even greater conflagration as such a revolt against the governments throughout the MENA nations and potentially result in an even greater flow of refugees fleeing broken nations with no effective governance and lawlessness beyond measure. The problem is such uncontrolled waves of immigration could just as easily be bringing terror operatives and instigators along with the refugees as Europe is realizing to their horror. One can only pray that there are sufficient numbers of refugees who are willing to turn in any terror or organizers from terror groups such that the lack of screening does not cause many people’s worst fears, both within Europe and others outside who would hate to see all the art and other great works and historic buildings destroyed simply because they insult Islam according to some crazed Imam such as the one with the knife pictured above.

Abbas, PLO, and the Endless News Cycle

 

Why does the world sympathize with the Arab side of things against Israel? Sheer volume of noise coming from Mahmoud Abbas, Dealer of Lies, alone even without including Bassem al-Tamimi and family with the endless incitement of the IDF every Friday; Saeb Erekat and his once or twice news condemning the Israelis for some super-critical impingement of the Arabs from some right or freedom; Marwan Barghouti and his updates on the horrific treatment of Arabs by the Jews from his almost country Club prison accommodations; the nearly endless parade of NGOs, Human Rights groups, media stringers feeding stories to the mainstream media usually at times most convenient for European news cycle with some intended attention to the United States media as well; independent research group hoping to find that singular item which propels them into the limelight; college or university campus holding demonstration against Israeli mistreatment, victimization, incarceration, crushing of spirit, demeaning or other Israeli criminal adventure against some innocent Arab; Independent research group reporting on Israeli crimes as fed them by Fatah Party; Yasser Abed Rabbo twice monthly complaint of Israeli criminal actions; Knesset Minister Zoabi or Tibi or other Arab or pro-Palestinian or Israeli leftist complaints against Netanyahu or other fascist government entity or group within the Knesset making their representing the Palestinian cause near impossible; or any number of Pallywood releases against Israel; governments imposing embargo, labeling, pulling from nation’s store shelves of Israeli products; the Israeli blood-libel or two of the week be it the old Israelis stealing organs and limbs from bodies of terrorists, who died while conducting attacks on Israeli civilians, returned to PA; and lastly the denial of some Arab’s right to free expression by ramming their vehicle into crowded bus stop or bombing some Pizza Parlor.

 

Every single story which conceivably might have occurred with film showing the action of the complaint is immediately sucked up by some European media outlet or leftist United States media and then this one story is repeated day after day as it winds its way to production with each rendition of the story having ‘new’ details as reported by some obscure but Arab sounding name at least once every other month. I have lost count of the number of times beautiful blue eyes have been removed from some Arab corpses and replaced with the brown eyes from the Israeli wanting the blue eyes but the sister, brother, mother but rarely father (not quite sympathy grabbing as the other options) remembering solemnly and tearfully how they loved their son, brother or whatever relation, eyes switched before turning them over to the Arab PA officials which is provable by the sheer numbers of Jews with blue eyes as if it were impossible for a Jew to have blue eyes (and I assure all that my blue eyes are original equipment for my body and have been blue since my birth) though apparently fairly common for Arabs. But the volume of complaints, charges, demands and endless cycling of condemnations of Israel, Netanyahu, the Zionist criminal of the week, crime against Arab of the moment, demand for recognition, denunciation of the heartless Zionists, settler story, stolen fruit from Arab grove which the Israeli was seen stealing the fruit after tilling, planting, pruning and all other care but the reaping the fruit was one thing too many, after all, what did the Israeli expect living beyond the all-important Green Line.

Never mind the realities that even if the Jews generally, the Israeli government, or any Israeli politician or activist particularly, attempted to file a report and seek an interview to state their case in some similar story that nary a reporter would even bother to file a report without them needfully being vetted and validated and then questioned by their being asked some pertinent question starting with a statement as if it were fact followed by this ending, ‘and how long had that illicit torturing of Arab babies been happening and when do you plan to ever stop such acts?’ The propagation of almost exclusively the Arab narratives, and the most radical stories always have some victim who was now forced from their home overlooking the Sea of Galilee and are now forced to reside in their main much less roomy home, please do not remind all the second house is a villa on a mountain top with only a dirt driveway reaching the front door (the implication is undeniable that the Israelis were the reason why there was no paved road). Such is the reporting news cycle after news cycle. If you do not believe us then please try this little experiment, it is a rather easy experiment; first choose a leftist newspaper such as the New York Times or television news such as CNN or some easily identified newswire such as AFP (Agency France Press) or radio on the hour news such as the BBC or even a leftist Israeli newspaper such as Haaretz and simply tally the number of stories filed, one can even restrict their search to front page above the fold newspapers that way they need not actually buy any newspaper as they can read that much simply browsing newspapers at the stand without purchasing one. Now that you have your sources all you need do is to log reports in the main section and grade each from a one to a nine where one is heavily pro-Israel and nine pro-Arab and do this until you have collected one-hundred stories which usually will take about eight weeks or so and you will have your data, the lengthier the sampling period the more accurate the results. All one need do is add together all the scores and then divide that by the number of stories and then you will have your newspaper’s honest reporting quotient which can be rated as follows; a score of one to two and the news source is untrustworthy as they are whitewashing everything using a strongly pro-Israel position; from three and a half down to but not equaling two the news is definitely slanted towards Israel; from higher than three and a half to four the news is slanted towards Israel; if your news hits the sweet spot of between four to five then your news is respectfully reporting on both sides, but such a source would be difficult to find as even here we slant towards Israel while trying to give credit and criticism where demanded; from five to almost six and a half the news is slanted towards the Arabs; from six and a half to almost eight the news is slanted pretty far towards the Arab side; from eight to nine, the news source is untrustworthy as they are whitewashing everything using a strongly pro-Arab position.

 

 

Prayers offerred at Kever Yoseph

 

 

With all of that out of the way, now we can, each and every one of us, can grade our news services by their printed, spoken words. Truth be told, we all know on which side our bread is buttered and towards which end of the political spectrum our news sources slant the news and we would like to think that our readers know we support Israel but endeavor to call things straight up reporting on Israeli aggressions just as we do Arab Palestinian aggressions. As with many news services the slant comes just as much on how we represent our side and how we admit to the truths presented from the other side.

 

We report a lot on what President/Chairman/and whatever other titles he has taken Abbas quotes simply because he provides new material far more frequently than does any other person we cover and often says things with which we disagree and thus we try to refute those positions he takes which we find dishonest. We also attempt to present facts with links where such are found. Some of the statements made about Israel simply make no sense at all considering the facts. The statements that the Israelis are threatening to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque are ludicrous and when the rebuilding of an ancient synagogue which was gutted and left to fall by the Jordanians as they did to for too many Jewish religious sites after their gains made taking Israeli lands of Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem in the 1948-9 war for the annihilation of Israel and her people led by the Mufti of Jerusalem; the same war the Israelis emphasize as their War of Independence as they knew if they had lost the war outright instead of losing some territory, though much of the territories lost held either great historic and religious importance as well as tactical importance, there would have been no Israel and another Holocaust, though of lesser magnitude, would surely have ensued. Perhaps we could look at some of these as Mahmoud Abbas claims all of these sites as being exclusively Arab and/or Muslim sites. The Cave of Machpelah (also called Cave of the Patriarchs as it is the cave holding the tombs of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah. It sits in its subterranean areas under a building built by Herod the Great, a large, rectangular enclosure over the caves, the only fully surviving Herodian structure from the period of Hellenistic Judaism. Herod’s building, with 6-foot-thick stone walls made from stones that were at least 3 feet (0.91 m) tall and sometimes reach a length of 24 feet. Muslims added a roof and renamed this Jewish holy site the Ibrahimi Mosque. Additionally are Kever Rachel (Tomb of Rachael) north of Bethlehem and Kever Yoseph (Tomb of Joseph). There had been numerous Synagogues of which any were located on the Old City of Jerusalem and thus were conquered and held under occupation by the Jordanians who destroyed the vast number of these centers for prayers and learning.

This is another of Mahmoud Abbas’s favorite areas to make grand statements denying the Jewish holy sites and along with that denial he denies there having ever been any holy sites for the Jewish people in all of Israel and goes further claiming that the Jews who returned to Israel were not even the original Israeli Jews but rather some sect of Europeans who converted to Judaism though this is a common libel against European Jews. One need also remember that Mahmoud Abbas was awarded his doctoral degree based on his study which proved that the Holocaust never happened and that only a small number of Jews were ever used for labor or simply murdered claiming instead that the entire idea of a Holocaust was perpetrated by the Jews and Nazis so as to be able to conquer the world together. Abbas was amongst the Arab officials who perpetrated the Jenin slaughter which even a United Nations investigation proved was not the case and that the majority of those who died in Jenin were actually fighters from both sides. Abbas had been known to also give credence to the idea that Israelis murdered Yasser Arafat and that Arafat’s death was anything but due to natural causes or a natural result of Arafat’s life style. Personally, my thought is that often when one lives for seventy-five years it is entirely possible they died of being seventy-five years old as not all of us are permitted a life reaching to one-hundred-twenty years. Unfortunately, all too often much of what Mahmoud Abbas claims are simply spun from the same cloth as were the Emperor’s new clothes yet just as all were far too scared of what the Emperor might do if they revealed the truth so nobody was willing to step forth and tell the Emperor that he had been played for the fool and that he was parading about the city in his royal undergarments. I keep waiting for someone with a decently loud voice to carry the message far and wide that the Emperor is wearing no clothes and that Abbas spins tales of woe and incitements to murder just as he lies claiming that he is the one true peace-seeker despite turning down peace agreement after proposed agreement always without a counter demand as he fears that he will demand too little one day and the Israelis will accept and then he will find himself in the same trap that Arafat found himself almost trapped.

 

Along these lines, Abbas recently outed himself in a rare moment of crystal clear truth sneaking its way out his mouth when he stated he had refused an agreement offered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert which granted him virtually everything he had ever claimed to want in order to make peace. This admission is the real truth which Abbas skirts around like a professional ice skater pirouetting around the elephant in the middle of the ice rink, a large pink and orange stripped elephant which can actually speak one phrase over and over while Abbas continues to skate. The phrase the elephant speaks as Abbas twirls and jumps making a great spectacle stating, “Slow down and make peace before you trip and fall getting hurt and the peace walks away as do all elephants on the room or on the rink if you ignore their proffers one too many times.” The problem is Abbas claims that even should he agree to make peace, peace does not include surrendering the Arab claim to all the lands and their struggle to replace Israel with Palestine, not share the lands. That is the definitive problem, which Abbas wants to continue the struggle indefinitely which will only lead to one final outcome, the Arabs receiving nothing and being forced from the lands of Israel, all of Israel. Abbas knows the reality is that all the lands are Israel under International Law and that the occupying entity are the Arabs who refuse to recognize Israeli rule or who wish to overthrow the government of Israel and slaughter the Jews taking their lands. This dream that they will possess all the land will lead to their residing on none of the land as if they insist there can be only one nation, then so be it and may we observe the admonitions of Torah and make every inch of the lands given to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob be settled and the claims settled once and for all if it is to be all or none, we will take all and Abbas will have let his people down as he could have had so much and his risky game will result in no land for the Arabs who oppose Israel and the national home to the Jewish People from ancient history our return had been known, prophesized; and going against the prophets is a very risky business.

 

 

This is the model of the plans for the restoration and rebuild of the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. The Synagogue was originally constructed in the 1860s and was destroyed when the Jordanians dynamited the original Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue along with virtually every other religious or significantly Jewish building in all ot Eastern Jerusalem which includes the entirety of the Old City Jerusalem which includes structures over two thousands of years in age and other built throughout the centuries. These destructions were wanton, senseless, vile acts for which there was no outcry in 1948 as the world turned a blind eye as has proven to be the reaction to virtually every terrorist or destructive act towards Israel and particularly the Jews residing therein.

Realities of the Settler Building Freeze

 

The building freeze has implications and aims at changing the status-quo set up by the Oslo Accords. It is the stipulation in the Oslo Accords which has forced Mahmoud Abbas to declare that the Arabs are no longer restrained by the Oslo Accords and are now simply moving on to restoring the entirety of Palestine which is from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. There are many claims and less than honest denunciations concerning the map and the allotments and definitions demarking how the lands were to be shared and divided. So, let us dive into some of the reasoning and include some of the misconceptions and outright lies about the divisions agreed upon at the setting of the Oslo Accords as they were originally negotiated and even at a second conference which fine-tuned the agreement so as to address some of the Arab complaints and adjusting for Arab demands to remedy what they claimed were unfair provisions which the Israelis had ‘forced’ them to agree with and signing the original Oslo Accords treaty. One thing to keep in mind is that when the Oslo Accords were being hammered out and originally written and agreed upon as well as the amendments were added and adjustments made the Arab leadership top two positions were held by Yasser Arafat with Mahmoud Abbas right next to him. True, they had others who did most of the negotiating and other excuses but it was under their watch that the Oslo Accords and Oslo II were negotiated and had Yasser Arafat signed along numerous others as it often goes at these ceremonial signing events before the media. The select thrust is that the entirety of the Oslo Accords negotiations were agreed upon by Arafat and Abbas holding the top positions which means that Abbas’s complaints over the past number of years which have led to his discarding any constraints imposed by the Oslo Accords was all part of the scheme to completely lose Oslo and replace it with the propaganda that has been carefully orchestrated such that the impressions by the media and much of the United Nations as well as the European Union, United States, the Arab League, all the MENA nations, the Quarter and just about everyone else one might think of including believing that the entirety of Judea and Samaria were always intended to be the borders for the Arab state to be carved out of lands which were reserved solely for the Jewish state but some promises are more important than others just as all animals are created equal but some animals are more equal than others. The discussion will be basing our expiations upon will be using the map below which comes to us credit of the United Nations all for the sake of accuracy.

 

 

Oslo Accords Division of Judea and Samaria into Areas A, B & C where A & B were Arab and C and Military Zones were Israeli as per the United Nations (this is their map)

Oslo Accords Division of Judea and Samaria into
Areas A, B & C where A & B were Arab and
C and Military Zones were Israeli as per the
United Nations (this is their map)

 

 

The first feature which probably grabbed your attention early on was that large grey area along the eastern or right side of the map. This area was and always has been an area separated from considerations as it was designated as a military requirement for Israeli security which was supposedly guaranteed such that Israel could have a solid defense from any ground offensive coming from the east, not something out of the question with the Islamic State near to this exact area with solely Jordan to potentially prevent their access and additionally there are currently thousands of Jordanians demonstrating and demanding that Jordan abrogate the treaty with Israel as the first step to declaring a war and destroying the Jewish state. The area serves as an early warning system to use radar, visual and other detection capabilities to intercept air attacks such as aircraft and missiles. This is a reality and even more so after the Iran treaty has left a legal path to nuclear weapons and an even bigger threat that Iran might not be all that patient and ignore the restrictions and start or continue a clandestine operation and reach not only nuclear break out capability but to actually build a respectfully sufficient nuclear weapons stockpile where they could feel adequately safe in launching a nuclear attack. This was the requirement and this area even to today has limited civilian locations with the exception of around Jericho.

 

The next obvious problem which needs explanation is why the light yellow areas are snakelike and separating the Arab denoted areas into smaller areas which to the innocent eye would be doing exactly what Mahmoud Abbas has endlessly complained about, dividing the Arab areas into bantus. The areas were not imposed randomly simply to chop off neighbors from friends or farmers from their fields or any such propaganda. The Palestinians are allowed to use these roads and cross the roads as are the Israelis, but Israel is responsible for the security and safe usage of the roadways and as Israel is also tasked to provide protection from all forms of attack be it terror, invasion or other attacks both foreign and domestic, logic dictates that Israel have free access to the main roads and other vital areas which provide military or civil advantages both for support, logistics and tactical necessities. This was also demanded to serve Israeli security, this time as a way to control terrorism which also made necessary being permitted to place checkpoints in some locations in a permanent basis while also having roaming and special checkpoints all depending on situational awareness or specific intelligence. If there had been no terror attacks, no bombings, no rock throwing or other threats, this division would still be necessary as Israel being responsible for protection from foreign invasion, these main highways and roads would also be absolutely necessary for a rapid and effective response. The rest of the grey area mixed into other areas would be where Israel ‘settlements’ already existed or had been planned by the time the Oslo Accords had been proposed and ratified. Remember that these maps were agreed upon by the Arab side, but when you have no intention of ever reaching an agreement and only wanted to gain any foothold from which to use propaganda, media bias, misinformation, and outright lies, then maps denoting intended areas assigned for division of settlements are meaningless.

 

What does any map defining an intermediate starting stage mean to those whose idea of the eventual and fair and equitable result is the complete eradication of the other side, complete subjugation, if not eradication of the other side; as the only permissible result which would preordained by the god of your religion would not allow for anything less. The world has done an unbelievable job of once again making a promise to the Jews and the Zionists, then and after the it was deal decided that their promises were meaningless as soon as it became possible to find some promising way to potentially destroy Israel and remove the Jewish state, if not the Jews as a whole, from the face of the earth. The first was after the Balfour Declarations being adopted by the League of Nations at the San Remo Conference which called for the entirety to be used for the Jewish state providing that the local peoples were allowed freedom of religion, societal freedoms and freedom to self-rule in their day to day lives with the Jewish population being responsible for international relations and defending the state. It took less than two years after the adoption of the Treaty of Sèvres when the British came up with the next promise, or should we term it a lie when they guaranteed that if the Zionists permitted the lands east of the Jordan River to be used for an Arab state which would be the homeland for the Arabs of the area leaving all of the lands west of the Jordan River to be used as the Jewish state. This promised that the division was the final compromise would have left the map as depicted in the next map, very much the map the most ardent Zionist nationalist who may foolishly believe the world was telling the truth with the Transjordan (Jordan) promises.

The building freeze which had become the mainstay of President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and of course the Arabs and the European Union has a very nefarious effect on any eventual decision. The term which corresponds directly to the building freeze and that is facts on the ground. Facts on the ground are claimed to be the main determination for what lands and areas are controlled by the Arabs and the Israelis. With the Israelis refused the right to build anything the Arabs can build neighborhoods even those surrounding and close in to the existing Jewish neighborhoods such that as they cut them off from any major highway or major thoroughfare they would take control of the entire area including the Jewish communities taking control of them and forcing the Jews out just as Jordan did to the Jews living in Judea and Samaria as well as eastern Jerusalem and the Old City when they occupied these lands taken from Israeli control in the 1948 war to destroy Israel which Israel lost lands to Judea, Samaria and most of Jerusalem to Jordan; the Golan Heights to Syria; and Gaza to Egypt; but Israel survived, which is why they refer to it as their War of Independence when it was actually their war for the right to live; so losing may have been a potential result, but it was never considered a possibility as they could not realize such an occurrence after the horrors they had survived during the Holocaust just a few years earlier. The building freeze is simply a means through which the world can force the Jews to surrender more of Judea and Samaria to the Arab demands and it is looking like this is working as the Europeans have been financing the building of Arab neighborhoods within the areas which were exclusively reserved for Israeli towns and cities as well as within the eastern defensive zone thus also making for a more vulnerable zone. With Arab building being built by Europeans, the claim is that the Arabs are not building in any zone forbidden them, the Europeans are building settlements and cities within Area C and nothing says that the Europeans cannot build there and nothing says they cannot sell these houses and other buildings to Arabs if they choose to do so. Thus the Europeans are simply building cities and settlements and selling them to whomever they choose at an affordable price, somewhere around free. The reality of the insistence by President Obama, and almost a certitude to be continued by President Clinton and potentially Republican President depending on the candidate and more than likely under a President Bernie Sanders who despite being born into a Jewish family had never lost any sleep over Israel, the building freeze may become a permanent certitude. But it may already be too late for there to be any other conclusion but for Israel to surrender everything and displace over one million Jews from their homes, remove entire industrial parks and numerous companies resulting in the loss of thousands upon thousands of Arab jobs as these industries either pack up and give up or rebuild their operations inside Israel across the border, a border completely closed and near impossible for any to cross and this would cost thousands more jobs for those Arabs who currently are allowed into Israel daily for work.

 

There are some ramifications which the world had not quite invested sufficient thought. Once the Arabs are given their state and let us assume for a moment that they gain everything the world believes they desire, despite the reality that the only peace they will accept is the total destruction of Israel with them standing atop the ashes, is that Israel could simply stop all interactions and services with the Arab state. Such is actually unlikely because Israel and her people are struck by a potentially fatal flaw; they are civilized and might be more concerned about the Arabs survival than they do about their own citizens’ energy and water consumer prices. The problem is that Israel provides the vast majority of water and electrical supplies to both Gaza and Judea and Samaria and could very easily stop providing them until the back owed bills be paid as they have been ignored for close to a decade. Then, after the past debts being paid in full, there would be just cause for Israel to demand that for future deliveries of these necessary and vital deliveries be paid for in advance or a significant security deposit be paid equal to an estimated six months estimated bill such that they would have a three month grace period in paying their bills before service would be cut off. Whatever the ramifications, the world is rushing forward playing with fire and believing that nobody will get burned or that they know who will get burned and they are comfortable with who they believe will get burned, but what if they are wrong, dead wrong. Still the world appears dead set on forcing Israel back within the pre-Six Day War borders for reasons many will claim are unknown. We will take a stab at why. First the logic as we work towards our thoughts. In 1948 the German Nazi officers and British officers actually worked side by side in advising the numerous Arab armies from seven nations as they attempted to destroy the nascent state in a war which lasted almost a year and a half and killed one tenth of the Israeli population. Yet somehow Israel survived. In the Six Day War when Egypt, Syria and Jordan with assists from other Arab states all attacked Israel the concept did not include Israel liberating Gaza, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights as well as taking control of the Sinai Peninsula. It was more figured that the war would take even less time and the victorious Arab vanquishers favored by Allah would all be dancing in Tel Aviv within three days; things don’t always turn out as planned. In 1973 with complete surprise and most of the army personnel in Synagogue for Yom Kippur and it taking almost six hours before the reserves and regular units could be fielded, Israel ended up on the outskirts of Damascus and much of the way to Alexandria and Cairo after crossing the Suez Canal. After that surprise the Europeans and United States demanded that Israel retreat to the boundaries from which the war began. This defeat showed that if Israel had sufficient logistical depth they were near to invulnerable. This is one of the reasons for pushing Israel into the smallest size possible as the world has learned that they need all the help they can get if they will ever defeat Israel completely and undo what many in Europe and around the world now see as having been a fatal error, allowing the Jews to return to their natural homelands. The rumor was the land was not farmable, not productive and all but cursed with nobody making a go of the lands from the Romans to the present day. They believed the Jews were making a horrid mistake demanding this wasteland. They were wrong as this is the land of milk and honey and has surrendered her bounty to the Jews and will continue to do so. Granted, if the Jews are ever forced from the land it will dry up and refuse to bear its fruits no matter the amount of effort other peoples will attempt to make a go of it as this land and the Jewish people are a match made in Heaven, honest, a match made in Heaven and given that heavenly guarantee which is not transferable to anybody else.
