The Insanity Driving American Palestinian Policy

 

Secretary of State Kerry gave a blatantly erroneous, magnificently ignorant, critical targeting of a phantom problem and deliberately dishonest assessment of the driving motivation behind the current Arab violence against Israelis by stating publically placing the administrations bias plainly within the view of the media and those desirous of demonizing Israel at any cost when he claimed the Arabs were driven to violent distraction by the continued increase in Israeli building beyond the Green Line in the so-called settlements. Secretary of State Kerry was either deliberately fabricating out of the thin air the accusation that Israel has even permitted the construction of a deck or a porch, let alone any additional homes, apartments or other construction in the areas beyond the Green Line as Prime Minister Netanyahu has enforced meticulously the desired building freeze which President Obama demanded after his reelection as the necessary Israeli contribution if there were to be any hopes for reaching an eventual peace drawing onto the map of the Middle East a second state for Arabs to reside alongside Israel sharing in peace between the two people and mutually enforced security for both states between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea. This has been the chimerical summation which has been presented by the Obama administration despite their having full knowledge that such building had been terminated as demanded and Mahmoud Abbas refused to even meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu back in the first year of Obama’s Presidency and all construction has been suspended since President Obama’s reelection starting with his 2009 inauguration.

 

Meanwhile, the entire brain-trust employed by President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and the rest of the advisors have all apparently neglected a few not so insignificant facts about Mahmoud Abbas actions, intents, recent statements and also his multifaceted program of incitement to violence and rewarding that selfsame violence. Mahmoud Abbas over the past twelve months has announced the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and the establishment of Palestine claiming that he would be its titular head of state, made an alliance which merged Hamas with the PLO and thus his construct of Palestine, declared Jerusalem as the Capital City solely of his constructed state denying it as the Israeli Capital City and theoretically annexing all of west Jerusalem, declared the Oslo Accords dead and removing his constructs, all of them, from its limitations and its requirements on the Arab entities, worked with numerous European governments to establish Arab homes and communities in Area C which was reserved for Israel and forbidden to Arab construction, and began the Third Intifada which has also been called the Stabbing Intifada with an all-out campaign of incitement using all forms of media including but not limited to Facebook, multiple social media formats, radio, television, financial rewards, recent increase in honoring terrorists from the prior Intifadas, school lessons of incitement, releasing popular songs such as “Stab, Stab,” “Stab the Zionist and say God is great,” “Let the knives stab your enemy,” “Say hello to being a martyr,” and “Run Over, Run Over the Settler,” examples as depicted in the videos below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But why allow some insignificant item such as the truth and reality impinge on your preconceived notions that the real problem comes from the overcrowding within many family homes and apartments in the Jewish cities and towns where as their children have married and had children since January 2009 when President Obama was reelected and sworn into office and the Israeli government of Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed to freeze all building beyond the Green Line causing this ever increasing overcrowding in many family homes as they are making do with empty promises that eventually the tenders which have been bid upon but frozen at that point so as to keep Netanyahu’s promise to Obama and Kerry yet they tend to scream foul every time bids for tenders are collected and a contract rewarded for if and when the building freeze is ever lifted. The building by Israel are the least damaging threat to peace and the formation of a permanent peace and that is where we need to address the reality and from that derive an honest and straightforward assessment of the entire situation from all aspects and not just seeking to support a decided view which condemns and vilifies Israel and through that the Jews in general. The murderous violence perpetrated by the Arabs, both Israeli citizens and members of terror groups Fatah, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Hamas and rumored to include Islamic State sent individuals to join in murdering Israelis with the hope of killing Jews. Below is a picture of the investigation and cleansing of the scene where an Israeli soldier and three others in Tel Aviv on October 8, 2015. Another difference between the Arabs treating of a place where one has been injured and the treatment by Israel in similar instances is the Arabs loiter and make a point to bring every reporter, camera and media to cover the situation for maximum coverage in Europe and the rest of the Western World while in Israel the family and victims are respected and the site investigated and then immediately cleansed as seen in picture below.

Since the introduction of the Oslo Accords in September of 1993 there has been one overriding occurrence which has been ignored by the United Nations, the European Union, and a host of leaders in Europe, the United States, the developed world and met with various shades of glee by the Arab and Muslim worlds. Every time when any leader of the United Nations, United States, the Quartet or the European Union and her member states decided to push for peace talks the program was sickenly the same story, Israel, Israel, Israel and Israel was forced to make dangerous concessions time after time while the Arabs were either given a free ride or were required to act nice. When the talks are resumed the Arab leaders starting with Yasser Arafat (master terrorist and inventor of plane hijacking, homicidal suicide bombers and numerous other forms of terror) and later taken to the present day by Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas simply attended the negotiations in a simple means to try and force the maximalist positions they could extract from the Israeli side before making a large disturbance denouncing any claims and statements that they had made even a single promise while assuring that the mediators were sure to record every compromise which were even discussed for Israel to make. This was the modus-operandi for every negotiation which was conducted until Israel had been backed to her last stand without compromising away vital requirements. Israel was convinced to make what proved to be her absolute greatest sacrifice by President George W. Bush, who was regarded as being Israel’s greatest friend to ever sit in the White House, all of Gaza and removing eight-thousand Israeli citizens as well as exhuming every Jewish grave for reinterring within Israel while also attempting to assist the transplanted Israelis after they lost their homes and often their businesses and everything they had owned suddenly in August, 2005. Even now there are those Israeli citizens turned refugees have yet to be repatriated and made whole and productive and some may never recover. The surrendered lands of Gaza were lost soon thereafter negating any promises made by the administration of George W. Bush and especially Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as Hamas took over Gaza after a few days of fighting as Abbas’s forces just had no fight within folding over June 10–15, 2007. All told, the Oslo Accords have cost Israel thousands upon thousands of lives lost and hundreds times that in lives ruined or inalterably torn asunder.

 

The reality as to why there has been no compromise reached has been due to the Arab leadership and their more fanatical Islamists demanding the complete eradication of the Jewish State of Israel. Abbas has stated that he desires his state of Palestine and the return of five-million Arabs into Israel making the Jews a minority placed into Dhimmitude all but enslaved to their Islamic “betters” and relegated to some hellish existence knowing that at any moment and the whim of any of their keepers they would be given the choice of conversion or death. This is the truth of the situation as the Israelis, and especially the Jews and all the people who are of non-Islamic religions also forced into the same fate. Eventually the Muslims who are of any sect other than the majority sect would also be forced into the same predicament. For some reason such a deal does not appeal to the Israeli Jews and many other minorities even including Muslims from other than the Sunni belief structures such as mainly Shiites. With the Oslo Accords now trashed by Abbas’s Fatah and Hamas united such that they are both now simply another group waiting for the correct time and situations to join the Islamic State, something not all that removed from Hamas in attitude and desires when facing the greater world. The reality in the Middle East and across North Africa (MENA) is that unless the Islamic State is defanged and made to appear powerless and ineffective against any other power, especially a non-Muslim power, they will continue to grow and eventually take over every last terror groups and Islamist Sharia State leaving only the Wahabbists of Saudi Arabia, the Shia of Iran and Israel left to oppose this self-anointed Caliphate which will have spread across the near and far reaches of MENA. Should the declarations of being the next Caliphate not be opposed by the free world while these forces of the Islamic State are simply a relatively small area when compared to their goals, then they will eventually grow and take command of the oil fields of Saudi, Kuwaiti, and other GCC oilfields and potentially also the oilfields of Iran followed by the Iranian nuclear weapons production sites and their scientists and knowledge. This would be catastrophic and by forcing Israel into weakness the world is simply tempting just such a fate. Israel as the Jewish State is the lynchpin which keeps a control over the forces of MENA breaking out full strength into Europe as Israel would pose a very credible military force posing too great a threat to permit to remain as a threat against the rear and hindering supply-lines. This is the crucial role played by Israel which both the United States and Europe appear willing to play without going forward. The lack of recognizing the crucial role Israel plays is why President Obama had been so cavalier regarding Israel willing to sacrifice Israel today. Islam is preparing to pose a threat directly into the heart of Europe and an anti-Semitic disease once again infecting many in Europe on a scale not witnessed since the beginning of World War II. This has been why many rumors have been floating about the Internet with claims of knowledge as to the sides being drawn bringing forth claims of the immediate start to World War III. Israel has been informed how each President had supported her more than all the previous administrations which have unfortunately proven to be false. Let us hope that Israel can survive the remainder of President Obama, his time in office and the mischief he could still be the cause.

Peace, peace, Western governments and leaders scream demanding peace, but there will be no peace. The recently elected government in Sweden in their first act voted to recognize the Arab state of Palestine. They made no demands that a treaty be reached between the Arabs and Israel, no requirement for the Arabs to recognize Israel, no requirement that the Arab violence and terror attacks against Israelis be ended. The Swedish government simply gave recognition to the Arabs to have formed a state named Palestine without defining borders or end to hostilities. Now the French government is preparing to also recognize an Arab state called Palestine. They are going to require that the Arabs negotiate with Israel for eighteen months and if they can manage not to reach an agreement with Israel then the French government will recognize Palestine with the 1949 Armistice Lines (also called the Green Line and the 1967 Lines which are the Armistice Lines marking the front lines at the termination of violence from the Arab World’s attempt to destroy Israel at its birth and by treaty demanded by the Arab League that the lines never be used or interpreted as being an actual border) marking their border with the possibility of exchanges of lands by mutual agreement, something the Arabs have already stated they will not accept any alteration demanding that every Jew be removed from the lands before they take control or they will remove them in whatever manner is required. So, with this news and the call from Israeli Prime Minister for a reinitiating of the negotiations starting with arranging equal land exchanges in order to facilitate Israel retaining the cities built beyond the Green Line in areas which had previously been agreed would remain within Israel. One might wonder what the reaction might be from the Arabs.

 

Well, we did not have to wait long so why make you do so. Allow me to quote Saeb Erekat, the Arab leading negotiator who stated that such an idea was “completely unacceptable” and explained “Netanyahu’s proposal to discuss the borders of settlement blocs is an attempt to legitimize the settlements. The borders that should be set are the borders of the internationally recognized state of Palestine based on 1967 borders. Settlements should be stopped instead of being legitimized.” His answer is exactly what one would expect as after all with the Swedish government recognizing the 1949 Armistice Lines as the borders despite International treaties delineating that they were never to be used in any way as borders nor were they to imply borders, terms as noted above were insisted upon by the Arab League. Add to the Swedish recognition there is the French government placing a mere stipulation that the Arabs negotiate in bad faith and refuse to even pretend to be interested in reaching any agreement in order to have the 1949 Armistice Lines recognized as their border. Why should the Arabs make any concessions when all the pressure is being placed on the Israelis to reach an agreement or else they will lose the cities in which nearly one million Israelis reside in actual cities some of which have been established for over forty years and are anything but mere settlements, they are as much a city as is Netanya, Ashod, Ashkelon or even Tel Aviv.

 

The Arabs are aware that they could cause Israel untold economic turmoil from which the Israeli economy would take at the very minimum a decade to recover. Many do not realize that of the Israelis who were forcibly removed from their communities as part of the Gaza disengagement under Prime Minister Sharon have yet to be resettled into permanent housing and many have yet to find employment. The last thing Israel would need is another situation where a large number of Israelis were immediately forced from their homes and possibly their employment due to overt demands, pressures and resultant disasters visited upon Israel even should United States President Barack Obama give assurances promising a declaration of intents that the United States is prepared to apply similar to the insane agreement received after responding to pressures from United States President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to disengage from Gaza where they also provided assurances in a letter written by President George W. Bush and taken as a guarantee of future actions by the United States. That illusion was immediately snapped back to reality when incoming United States President Barack Obama immediately let it be known that those promises were not binding on him and he would refuse to recognize the guarantees granted by now former President Bush. Sometimes one can only wonder what Israeli leaders are thinking and even more so what the world leaders are thinking.

 

Furthermore, the commentary by Saeb Erekat calling for an end to construction in the Israeli cities and communities beyond the Green Line when he stated, “Settlements should be stopped,” was completely fatuous as Netanyahu had enacted a silent building freeze since the last round of peace talks started in late 2013 which he has yet to rescind and thus there has been no building past the Green Line and Saeb Erekat is fully aware of this situation. His claim inferring maliciously that Israel was continuing to build beyond the Green Line knowing that such would enflame European leaders potentially pressing more governments to grant recognition for Palestine free of any encumbrances such as making peace, settling borders, ending violence or granting recognition of Israel, especially as the home of the Jewish People. Mahmoud Abbas has also promised to never ever grant recognition of Israel as the state for the Jewish People. Senior PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) official Hanan Ashrawi joined in on the discarding any hope for actual peace negotiations stating Netanyahu was making “a disingenuous and manipulative exercise in political and legal deception.” She continued, “All settlements are illegal and in flagrant contravention of international law and consensus, and any efforts to annex and to legalize the settlements blocs is a blatant attempt to steal more Palestinian land.” Actually, truth be told, Israel has the most well defined claim to all the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with the following provisos that Israel must provide for any residents who are not Jewish (which was predominantly the Arab and Muslim population); provide religious rights; rights of property ownership; social rights to live, work, pray and play wherever they desire; and virtually any other human rights one might define with one specific exception, the non-Jewish population does not automatically have political rights. Non-Jews would have all the freedoms except they will not automatically be granted the vote, the right to run for public office or any other political act though their freedom of speech would allow them to campaign for candidates even if they would not be permitted to vote. This omission was specifically placed into the San Remo Conference Treaty and was further enforced by United Nations Charter Article 80 which reaffirmed the findings from the San Remo Conference Treaty. These facts may not be popular and the stipulations from the San Remo Conference and the ensuing language in the United Nations Charter Article 80 which form the legal basis for the claims recognized and permitted under the treaties which establish the International Laws governing every side, part and parcel of the Arab/Israeli Conflict. These nations recognizing a state of Palestine anywhere within the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea is illegal and would be dissolved upon any challenge to such an establishment without gaining Israeli permission.

 

One person who has supported Israel is Hillary Clinton whose comments about the failings at the very beginning when hosting the renewed peace talks commenting, “In retrospect, our early, hard line on settlements didn’t work.” Hillary Clinton further went on to describe how President Obama and State Department coming down on Israel immediately out of the block was the actual demand ultimately served to harden Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s stance against Israel leading directly to the collapse of the efforts terminating the negotiations which could be better described as a waste of time as their failure was predetermined. The proof of that comes straight out of the horse’s mouth as Mahmoud Abbas stated, “It was Obama who suggested a full settlement freeze. I said OK, I accept. We both went up the tree. After that, he came down with a ladder and he removed the ladder and said to me, jump.” The end of the Abbas commentary was a well-articulated response describing the changing tactics and shifting positions of United States President Barack Obama conveyed most often by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The comments by Mahmoud Abbas was the perfect representation of the Arab view on negotiations with Israel and the advantage the Arabs have as all they would be required to perform would be to not agree with Israel in negotiations for a year and a half and refuse to compromise on anything simple waiting for the Europeans along with the United States and United Nations to simply grant them everything they could ever have negotiated for and they got it because the Europeans believe that the reason the Arab world is fighting and threatening Western nations is because of Israel. The European leadership joined by the American Administration and State Department in blaming Israel and Israel alone for the lack of progress in the peace negotiations. The elephant in the living room which is almost universally ignored has been the negotiations creep where the Arabs have steadily moved the goalposts from the initial point where Israel had initially been expected to retain all of Judea and Samaria which was the Jordanian view when they reached a peace with Israel surrendering all of Judea and Samaria just as Egypt had surrendered all of Gaza to Israel. In both of these situations the Arab states of Jordan and Egypt surrendered to Israel the parts of the lands they had occupied from 1949 through June of 1967 when Israeli troops liberated the occupied lands which were recognized as being legally belonging to Israel. When Israel returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt when making peace and Jordan relented their illegal hold over Judea and Samaria many in the Western world figured that this was the end of the negotiations and that Israel would retain these areas which according to International Law were presumed to belong to Israel according to established treaty. This was not to be the end though as the Soviet Union’s KGB still had an ace up their sleeves which would place Israel in peril and threaten her very existence. The Soviet Union has fallen but their construct of the PLO is still being a thorn in the side of Israel.

 

That is the extent to which the worldview has changed where after the 1967 Six Day War it was expected that Israel would probably retain half of the Sinai Peninsula dividing it along the central mountains with Israel retaining the entirety of the lands bordering the Gulf of Aqaba thus safeguarding their southern port and its access to the Red Sea and on to all of Asia. The Israeli conceding the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula was seen as a surprise by most but was also seen as an opportunity to the KGB and its PLO terrorist entity. It was the ease with which the Israelis gave up the opportunity to rightfully claim part if not all of the Sinai Peninsula as necessary for strategic depth by extending their borders that led Yasser Arafat and his Soviet masters to believe they could steal Gaza and Judea and Samaria if they simply made Israel bleed sufficiently. This belief led to the first intifada which resulted in the Israelis taking full control over Judea and Samaria forcing the leadership of the PLO to flee into Jordan. When the PLO launched an attempted coup, Jordanian King Hussein unleashed the Jordanian Army on the PLO terrorists driving them into Lebanon where they were subsequently forced out taking refuge in Tunisia. This might have been the end of the foreign claims on Israeli lands and Israel was fully expected to retain all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza. And that was the case after the treaty with Jordan and Israel had annexed all of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights which should have been the end of all claims against Israel. But that was not to be as the PLO had gained some traction and wrangled a deal for their return to the lands they now claim was stolen from them and was their possession and not Jordan’s to give away.

 

Groups working under complete silence negotiated a return for Arab governance permitting Yasser Arafat and his officers to return and setup their base of operations in Ramallah and legitimized Arafat as the Arab peace-maker with the Oslo Accords. The presumed negotiations which were to have reached a final settlement within the first five years did not live up to this hype and instead led to the storming out of the Paris talks when Israel agreed to the terms Arafat had set as his demand of Israel in meetings with United States President Clinton. This was followed by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak being backed by President Clinton and given several guarantees, finally met all of Yasser Arafat’s demands for all of Gaza and 95% of Judea and Samaria and all of Eastern Jerusalem. With no objections left on which to avoid actual statehood, Yasser Arafat had only one viable choice, he was cornered and had to escape the trap he had so carefully set backfired and now he was the one in a cage trapped by his own demands. This led to his hasty departure after which he returned to Ramallah and soon thereafter initiated the Oslo Wars, a series of deadly terror attacks upon Israel, terror attacks which would continue and reach such a level that Israel put in the Separation Barrier, a structure which was largely a fence with some cement walls used to separate the two sides in built up urban settings. The route of the fence was challenged in court where some of the time led to an alteration of the barrier such that farmers still had access to their fields. All of this has led to today where the Arab demand now is for all of Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem, all of the lands beyond the Green Line.

 

That leads us to where things stand currently. It became obvious when President Obama recognized and fully supported the Arab claims to all the lands beyond the Green Line early on in his administration and President Obama clearly stated that the borders were to be formed using the Green Line, 1967 boundaries, as the basis for the formation of Palestine, the Arab state. Well, Mahmoud Abbas, Yasser Arafat’s second in command who assumed command upon the death of Arafat, was in a trap which he reveled in as he could never be seen to be demanding less than the President of the United States or the leaders of several European nations as well as the European Union. When Israel did not immediately fall all over themselves giving away even more lands after the edict being stated by President Obama which completely ignored all previous agreements, both written and verbal, the United States State Department, a department which has been infiltrated by pro-Arab continents at the highest levels, came down blaming Israel for there being no peace agreement when the expected final borders are well recognized by everybody in the world and questioned why Israel was stalling and avoiding the obvious. Israel was complying with the obvious, just a different set of obvious facts. The first fact was that they knew that Abbas would not now settle just for a State with the Green Line as its border but would demand much more. Abbas proved the Israelis correct when he demanded to be permitted to hold military training with troops from other nations as well as starting to demand the Israeli cities built some forty years ago be vacated as well as any factories and government buildings. They were also demanding the right to import heavy weapons, continuing to refuse to recognize Israel as the Jewish State and refused to end the ‘struggle’ (read terrorist attacks) until all of Palestine has been liberated and the Jewish infestation disposed of. Abbas also has one ace he can always play though many of the Arab refugees have been dispossessed of their homes, their apartments due to the violence of the Syrian civil war, particularly the refugees who lived in the Yarmouk Refugee Camp near Damascus which once again is under assault by ISIS.

 

There are tactical and security reasons which prevent Israel simply handing over the lands of Judea and Samaria as they handed over Gaza which fell almost immediately into the hands of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. These terror entities have rained down an unbelievable number of rockets onto Israeli civilian targets and have attained better rockets which can reach almost all of Israel and carry larger payloads thanks to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). The fear used to be that Hamas would supplant Fatah and Mahmoud Abbas either by force or in any election but that fear has been superseded by the fear that Judea and Samaria would fall into the hands of ISIS. The clues are obvious as ISIS has been determined trying to defeat Hamas, Islamic Jihad and take control of Gaza. Such an eventuality would also present a clear and frightening new front for ISIS to threaten Jordan who is already facing ISIS on their eastern and northern borders and this would surround them by closing out the western border of Jordan which has only the smallest of southern facing borders. Israel would possibly be facing a similar threat should ISIS gain control of Gaza and then Judea and Samaria defeating Fatah. It is remarkable that just as one was getting used to the Arab threats on one’s borders and slowly being able to feel safer, then a new and far more radical Islamic entity with greater ferocity which is such a threat that the Arab Islamist groups which had been fighting simply folds up and flees surrendering everything usually without a fight. Even then, when ISIS forces finally catch up with these former terror threats, they give them a choice of joining ISIS or death and then test their purity and knowledge of the person if they choose to join ISIS. Should one prove to be of insufficient knowledge of Islam or lacking in the expected levels of fervor, one finds themselves on the wrong end of a beheading. There used to be the misconception that Israel was facing completely different terrorists than the Western world faced. The terrorists faced by Israel have proven more and more to be the same people, especially as ISIS and the al-Nusra Front gain more traction and possession of the lands near the Golan Heights where there have been a number of rounds fired often at the IDF positions some requiring return fire to silence the menacing threats posed by such rounds. One might have thought this would have been made obvious by the Hezballah bombing of the United States Marines billets in Lebanon by Hezballah as well as the assassination of the American Ambassador Cleo Allen Noel, Jr. and Chargé d’Affaires George Curtis Moore in the Sudan by the PLO with Yasser Arafat giving the go code to murder these men along with a Belgian, a Jordanian, and a Saudi. They then demanded the release of numerous terrorists held in Jordan including the Black September Commander Abu Daoud and assassin of Robert Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan from the United States penal system along with the freeing of all Palestinian women in prison in Israel.

 

This ill-conceived concept is once again apparent with the Obama White House where Israel is depicted as fighting the bad war and the rest of those battling Islamic Jihadist are fighting the good fight. This misperception has led to much of the troubles, especially in Europe where even Hamas is welcomed in polite circles as they are seen as freedom fighters and not terrorists. The European elites have just as significant percentage of anti-Semites who have transferred their hatreds for the Jews and now spill their bile against Israel. Many European leaders would only approve of any act by Israel only if they slit their own throats, which is why they support the surrender of all of Judea and Samaria and continue the tired falsehood that Gaza is still occupied due to the legal and United Nations sanctioned blockade to prevent weapons smuggling into Gaza and treat Hamas as freedom fighters and treat Mahmoud Abbas as if he were the second coming while often heaping scorn and insult upon Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and other Israeli politicians. It is not an easy explanation for why it appears the world is transfixed on Israel and attempting to aid in resetting the borders to where they existed before the 1967 Six Day War thus allowing for the most advantageous borders to facilitate another war for the eradication of Israel. Additionally, what do the Europeans and Americans and United Nations and their assorted NGOs plan on doing should another Arab/Israeli war be initiated against Israel? Such an eventuality would require a little more than a postcard expressing your regrets over the resurgence of hostilities and carrying a warning that the IDF should not operate beyond the borders of Israel as doing so would be considered a war crime by the overly-cultured and ever-so-erudite and properly all-knowing leaders of world opinion and the makers of the rules of war especially constructed to prevent Israeli transgressions such as winning another war with her overtly-aggressive Arab neighbors. Such embarrassments must not be permitted to be visited once more on these proud and wonderful peoples. We the leaders of the politically correct, socially-permissive, world’s conscience have decided that the nation of Israel must be forced within indefensible borders for as many times as it may take for Israel to be overrun by Arab Muslim armies and the lands cleansed of the mistake made in a moment of actual justice due to the Mediterranean breezes and the good spirits such engenders.

 

Now the Europeans are returning to their default setting of leftist hatred for all things Jewish starting with the largest thing Jewish, Israel. In order to cripple Israel in a vengeful attempt to destroy her and all she offers and creates for the good of the world because she actually willingly gives comfort and perceptions of safety for any Jews in the world to make Aliyah and enjoy. Proof was the fact that almost no civilian died as a result of being struck by a Hamas fired rocket during Operation Protective Edge. The reason for such an accomplishment was the years and treasures put into designing and creating such a system as the Iron Dome which protected innocent Israeli peoples including Israeli Arabs both Muslim and Christian. Israel saw the spending of over a hundred-thousand Israeli Shekels to intercept a rocket costing possibly as much as a thousand dollars but most likely only fifty to a hundred dollars. Why would Israel put so much effort and treasure to save lives? They do because every single life is far more precious than any amount of money or riches. Israel treasures life while our enemies taunt us for what they see as wasteful as they claim to treasure death. That is why they casually throw away the lives of the Arabs who live under their oppressions as they see the death of a Gazan civilian as another accusatory headline in the New York Times and newsprint across the Western World as well as electronic media picking up their slanted stories on the deaths of their civilians which were due to their firing rockets from the roof of a shelter, but what matter of difficulty does that pose as the rocket was aimed at the accursed Israel. That is what is defined as capable of bringing joy to the European elites, the destruction of Israel simply because Israel is a productive and healthy society and that riles the elites and leaders of a Europe predictably descending.

The Uninterpretable Faces of Mahmoud Abbas

 

Once again we were given a view of Mahmoud Abbas in April of 2015 actually speaking the truth in English laying everything out on the table for all to witness when, as Palestinian Authority President, he once again demanded a one-state solution for “Palestine” repeated publicly that all of Israel is “Occupied Palestine.” Despite these statements from Mahmoud Abbas as Palestinian Authority President, United States President Obama persists in demanding that Israel surrender to the Arabs all of the lands Israel liberated from Jordanian occupation. The solution demanded by the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Palestinian Authority, Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and numerous other identities behind which sinister demands are made under one title and denied by the very author under another title but the truth can be seen in the maps in their school texts, maps festooning their office walls, and numerous other official symbols and often drawn on posters which are paraded through the streets all showing a Palestine replacing all of Israel. What is often done by Mahmoud Abbas, we have come to call the smiling suit routine which is used across the Arab and Muslim world during negotiations, he will be at a conference or during negotiations, just as the Iranians have done to draw the P5+1 in negotiations to continue to permit more and more until they have compromised all the way to the Iranian demands, is to simply smile and nod his head while not actually agreeing to anything and simply sitting patiently waiting for the Western nations to slowly turn more and more of the contested lands over to the Arabs for their false state of Palestine. There have already been calls made in Europe to turn all of Jerusalem over to the false flag of Palestine granting them an undivided Jerusalem which they will blame on the Israelis for not being clear on what they meant when they demanded Jerusalem remain undivided, after all, giving the entirety to the Arabs as their capital city leaves Jerusalem undivided.

 

The Fatah’s Charter states bluntly and completely up front for all to read if they would ever care to become informed and realize the truth, “Our struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished, and Palestine is completely liberated.” The Hamas Charter states a similar desire for the complete liberation through the destruction of Israel, of all of Palestine and go one step further demanding that they continue to struggle and conquer lands while also being permitted murdering every last Jews on planet Earth. The ISIS Charter also calls for the eradications of the Jews as well as the Christians, Hindus, Baha’i, Buddhists, and even Shiite Muslims and any Sunni Muslims who do not meet their definitions of purity of the faith until all of the people of Earth have converted or been killed. All of these different Islamist driven groups, be they terrorists or terror states or simply madmen bent on world conquest and unification to their exact form of Islam just as it is demanded of them by their interpretation of the Quran. The various Palestinian terror groups, and that includes Mahmoud Abbas and the various groups he presides over which include and may not be limited to the PLO, Fatah Party, Palestinian Authority, State of Palestine, Commander of the Palestinian Armed Forces and Security Services, Commander and Financial Officer of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and who knows how many other titles under which he can make whatever conflicting statement today and in another position claim that that version of his persona never said such a ludicrous lie such as the exact statement he made the previous day. It is a perfect system to never ever be pinned down as agreeing to any position simply by changing which suit you are wearing each day. What makes this even more difficult for Western World leaders to understand is that virtually all of the suites worn by Mahmoud Abbas start to look the same as he dizzily jumps from one persona to another even during a single meeting such that he can nod knowingly to one proposition and when at the end of the meeting his signature should normally be placed on the agreement he apparently supported becomes something he has never seen and would never accept.

 

Another deceit used by Mahmoud Abbas in all of his guises is his demand to continue to have the “right to continue the struggle.” The struggle he refers to is the continued terrorist war against Israel until Israel has been destroyed and usurped by the pseudo-state of Palestine. In this manner Abbas can continue even after being gifted what the Western leaders have falsely believed was what Abbas had demanded in order to end the Arab-Israeli war, and do not for a second think of this as anything but the continuation of the Arab-Israeli war under which the Arab states realized they were unable to defeat Israel on the field of battle so they adopted the political war rather than open war. The concept which permits the ever increased demands implied or directed is covered by the politically correct terminology of “Global Fairness” which implies that the undeveloped world had been so decimated and harmed by the colonial masters that they are permitted to overstep any boundaries allowed in the resolution of normal conflicts as their right to redress for their former degradations. This is a position which the Obama Administration firmly believes in and also sees the Arab-Israeli conflict as Israel having been the colonial occupier against whom the downtrodden Palestinians have the right to compensations even to the point of the destruction of the State of Israel if that is what will allow them to have their perceived victim status relieved. The preposterousness of this argument need only take a quick look back to May 13, 1948 and one will witness the true colonial power in the history of this particular region, Great Britain, and the colonial power to the lands just north was France, both of whom were overseeing mandates, promises, to form states for the various peoples including for the Jews. The problem is that the Arabs, especially the Muslim Arabs, refuse to recognize the termination of their ownership of these lands as they once ruled them and thus must always rule them, and do not get them started on Andalusia, their name for Spain which they also claim should belong to the Muslim Arab Empire, delusions can be so much fun and equally dangerous when held by people heavily armed. Israel is made to appear to be a colonial power because Israel is a modern, technically capable, post-industrial society on a par with the rest of the Western World and as all the colonial powers were members of the Western World and Israel is perceived as a member of the Western World, then Israel must be a colonizing entity. It is the exact logic which goes that cows are mammals and my pet Weimaraner is a mammal so my pet must be a cow. This is one of the oldest deceits used in logic arguments to muddy the waters and if one side sticks adamantly to such an argument, it makes any further discussion useless and only leading to going further down the rabbit hole, which must have been dug by a cow as a rabbit is a mammal. The “Global Fairness” condition permits continued aggressions as permitted and understood reason for continued aggressions even after all has presumably been said and done but are permitted as the aggrieved party is considered so technologically outdone by the colonial party that these inconveniences must be understood and simply considered some bothersome but harmless annoyance to be tolerated until it eventually stops naturally. Of course those claiming this as harmless are not the same entity which is having bombs, IEDs, shooters, large rock throwing gangs assaulting vehicles, night invasions which murder entire households as was committed to the Fogels of Itamar, and numerous other terror and outright assaults daily as the Europeans demand Israel never respond to such violences committed against her civilians, her innocent civilians.

 

The recent events which transpired in Vatican City were simply another assault upon the existence of the Jewish State by the Catholic Church. The Popes who preceded Pope Francis, Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, did some very good work in attempting to remove much of the animosities and make reparations for the damages performed by the Catholic Church over the centuries to the Jewish People which included such horrors as being burned alive and often being chased from towns after having the majority of their belongings, especially items of value, confiscated and threatening a fate much worse should the Jews continue to foment arguments over such trivialities and other offences emanating from replacement theology. Pope Francis will not be continuing in this work of reconciling the differences and making at least partial reparations and confessions for the sins of the past but rather has taken a definitive stance against Israel seemingly because it is the State of the Jews and is an abomination in the eyes of those who see the Jews as a condemned people cast aside by G0d to roam the earth facing degradations and difficulties wherever they go never to return to their holy lands given them by a covenant with G0d as their doing so deprives the Catholic Church of their claim as the only true chosen of G0d. This is in part what is suspected as being behind Pope Francis and his all but groveling before Mahmoud Abbas and presumably, though there may have been a mistranslation, calling Abbas “an angel of peace” making it appear that Mahmoud Abbas has sought peace and Israel has refused to simply sign the agreement and make peace with Abbas. This entirely flips everything onto its head and will commit the Catholic Church back into its former depths of sins against their fellow man as they once again attempt to maintain grievances against the Jews and especially support efforts which aim to erase the Jewish State which Pope Francis appears to see as an abomination. Such was likely behind Pope Francis signing a treaty with the pseudo-state of Palestine and Pope Francis is likely to actually produce some map representing the pseudo-state of Palestine; the only question is whether said map will have any room for Israel or will it represent the eradication of Israel replacing the Jewish State with an Arab entity which will commit a genocidal cleansing of the lands to rid it of any Jewish presence. After that would be completed then would start the cleansing of Christians just as Bethlehem has been nearly completely cleansed of its Christian population which was approaching 80% of the population and now has dwindled below 20% and the city of Bethlehem has been reduced to ruin as there no longer exists any actual and productive commerce in what had been a thriving city with a proud heritage.

 

Additionally to the support Pope Francis has given to Mahmoud Abbas in his efforts to eradicate Israel, President Obama is quietly working with the French on a resolution to be presented to the United Nations Security Council to set tentative boundaries around which Israel must reach an agreement which is acceptable to Mahmoud Abbas. The definition of acceptable is any agreement the silent smile wearing a suit will sign. Of course we all know there does not exist an agreement which leaves the Jews with even a square millimeter of land which Abbas would find acceptable. Of course Abbas will sit through numerous meetings and listen to the various offers nodding his head with the smile plastered in place resembling a bobble head in the rear window of a vehicle on a potholed cobblestone thoroughfare. At the end Mahmoud Abbas will be nowhere to be found for the all-important signing agreement instead one of his various underlings, who also share his propensity for switchable titles, who will claim to be signing in Abbas’s stead. Once the fanfare has calmed and the celebratory back-slapping has concluded Mahmoud Abbas will appear to denounce the agreement and make a particular point that he did not sign this abomination and he will soon be firing the idiot who usurped powers which were not his. Of course the underling losing just one of his many titles will still collect a fat paycheck each week, actually numerous paychecks covering his varied titles. President Obama is dead set on forcing peace on the situation no matter who he has to sell down the river to get there. If Israel needs to be cut back to the original General Assembly divisions which the Arab League refused choosing instead to go to war to eliminate the Jews entirely, an effort which failed miserably in all things except one, it invalidated the offer, as any General Assembly Resolution passed is merely a proffered solution to a situation and as soon as one side refuses or demands changes to the agreement, it invalidates the agreement. But if that were to become Mahmoud Abbas’s demand, then President Obama would attempt to move heaven and earth to force Israel into the defined three cantons at best loosely connected as the neighboring Arab state had similar definition of three areas with both groups having the borders meeting in such a manner as to permit both groups to transverse from one canton to their next. A Map of the divisions below will show how unworkable such a set up would have proven to be and was simply a disaster waiting to happen. The world may have been spared the disaster by the Arab League rejection though their reasons were not the results which came of their choice for war rather than sharing the land.

 

 

UN Palestine Partition Versions of 1947 and included within UN General Assembly Resolution 181 which was rejected by the Arab League negating the UN Resolution as if either side rejects such a UN Resolution which is non-binding, it invalidates the entire agreement rendering it mute from that point forward. Jerusalem was to be managed by a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) set up consisting of international groups most likely to be rotated. This offer was accepted by the Zionist Congress but having any General Assembly Resolution accepted by one side and rejected by the other is simply one hand clapping, useless.

The Western World has placed all their eggs in one basket which is being carelessly tossed about and treated with disregard by Mahmoud Abbas as his aim is not for peace but for conquest of Israel followed by a genocidal solution to any Jewish claims as the dead have no claim, especially if bulldozed into a mass grave. That was the desired goal in the 1948-49 War which the Arabs named the War to Eliminate the Jewish State and Israel has simply accepted as her War of Independence. The Six Day War in June of 1967 was another war to eliminate Israel this time by driving the Jews into the sea. The Yom Kipper War in October 1983 was a surprise assault catching the Israelis completely unprepared initially appearing to reverse the losses of the Six Day War and again drive the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea but the final results simply reestablished the results from June of 1967 as the Israelis retreated back to those lines upon the insistence of the entirety of the world. This was when the Arab League joined the efforts which the Russians had begun in 1964 with the formation of the PLO under Yasser Arafat. This was to be a terror war of attrition which would wear Israel down and eventually leave Israel helpless and make the conquest that much easier. So far this has failed. What is interesting is trying to find what occupied lands was Yasser Arafat and his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, were attempting to liberate. The PLO Charter answers that question quite clearly, the PLO was created by the KGB and populated with a leadership specifically chosen by the KGB who also had trained the leaders and then any individuals who joined the efforts and was deemed worthy would travel to Russia for intensive training. The Charter called for the annihilation and complete destruction of the Jewish State of Israel. The intent was to completely eradicate any vestige of the Jewish presence which was Israel including pushing the Jews into the sea. At the time of the formation of the PLO in 1967 the Six Day War was three years in the future and thus the only occupied lands the PLO could be referring to was the State of Israel which resulted from the War in 1948-49 in which the modern state of Israel was formed and the Green Line set denoting the position of the front lines at the cessation of the fighting. The Arab League demanded that the Green Line be referred to solely as an armistice line and was to never denote the boundary for the State of Israel. This was demanded by the Arabs so that they would have a reason to claim they had never recognized Israel as they never signed an agreement setting an actual border. This farce has been carried forth to the present day as the Arabs see the State of Israel being forced to retreat behind the Green Line and they can return to believing that no final border has been assigned thus Israel is simply a figment of the Jews furtive imaginations and nothing more. This imagination that Israel was never actually properly established appears to be the game that Pope Francis is planning on playing with President Obama dancing right alongside as they pretend that all of Israel will soon be given to the Arabs and it will become an Islamist State in which Christians will become the target of choice as the Jews will have already been eliminated. Perhaps somebody should show Pope Francis the population figures for the Christians for all of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) where in every nation the numbers of Christians are dropping precipitously while only in Israel are the numbers of Christians increasing and ask him again who are the friends and protectors of the Christians in the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds. Somehow I really doubt even such evidence would move his heart as it is a cold weighted stone heavy in his chest spouting hatreds to the Jews and Israel.
