If Only Abbas Could Honestly State Desires

 

Mahmoud Abbas is excellent on claiming that Israel or Netanyahu are unable to meet his demands to make a peace. Could anybody tell us and point to the evidence that Mahmoud Abbas has ever stated plainly before the world even what his maximalist demands are to make peace or any hints as to what reasonably he would accept for a peace to be made? That is the problem; he has never laid forth any plan for peace. Mahmoud Abbas’s only statement about peace is that everything that has ever been offered is insufficient for him to agree and make peace. There will be those who have to blame Israel who will claim that Israel had never offered a peace proposal either. The problem is Israel had made specific proposals and submitted them during talks, the few which have actually managed to include Mahmoud Abbas or other Arab Palestinian representatives. Some have gone as far as splitting Jerusalem and turning over more than 90% of what Jordan held when the lands were renamed West Bank with land swaps for the remaining less than 10% and Abbas refused these offers and simply walked away without even trying to state a counter proposal and work out the particulars. Then as soon as the media was asking why, he would start screaming that Israel refused to give them Jerusalem and Israel was stealing Palestinian lands and Israel are refusing to continue negotiating and all kinds of lies and fabrications. Then much of the media print Abbas’s accusations and if Israel is lucky they print that the Israelis disagree with the Palestinians on why the talks failed.

There has also been another reason why Abbas refuses to make peace and it is actually quite logical. The cycle of peace talks goes something like this. First Abbas makes his accusations that the Israelis have not negotiated in good faith and that until the Israelis make certain concessions he refuses to even speak of peace talks. The United States, United Nations and Europeans all demand of Israel meet the concessions demanded by Abbas. Eventually the go between drags sufficient concessions from Israel and there is a big buildup in the media and there are cameras to record the historic handshake and then Abbas pockets the concessions and goes home. The negotiations fail and Abbas starts screaming to the media that Israel refuses to make an honest peace. The media run with that story and that is what we hear again and again and eventually pressure is once again put on Israel to make concessions so that somebody with a brilliant new approach, there are no more new approaches, trust us, so Israel makes more concessions. The cameras all document the handshake with a new backdrop and the negotiations soon die. Abbas starts screaming before the media about Israeli perfidy and refusal to make proper concessions for peace. This leads to more demands for Israel to make concessions so the peace talks can resume. The cameras record the historic handshake, the peace talks crash, Abbas screams, pressure on Israel bring the next concessions which has another handshake and the talks, well, you get the idea. Israel has run out of room for more concessions plain and simple.

 

The French are about to start their pitch for new talks and they will demand of Israel to make concessions to bring Abbas to the handshake ceremony. There will be no use in giving him a postage stamp, let alone actual territory. There is a way which could lead to peace if anybody out there really desires peace. It is actually quite simple to state. Have Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinian leadership make an actual offer as the first step towards peace. I promise that if anybody can get an actual concrete written with maps et al offer for peace that is anywhere even close to reasonable there will be peace almost immediately thereafter, just get the Arab Palestinian side to make an actual offer of what it is they will accept. Obviously if their minimal offer for peace is for them to be given all the lands from the River to the Sea and the Jews gone, which is code for all of Israel from the Jordanian Border to the Mediterranean Sea with all six and a half to seven million Jews with their throats slit, then Israel will likely not jump at that offer. The nice thing about such is the truth would finally have been made obvious for all who are willing to see and those still refusing to see can be written off as anti-Israel and anti-Semitic as when somebody believes that only the Jewish People are not entitled to have a state of their own, that is anti-Semitism plain and simple. Abbas believes that the Jews are not worthy of living in their own historic and ancient homelands and further would like for the Jews to all be killed just as do his counterparts in Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Iran and in all too many other corners of this world.

 

You can know one by their words and actions and Abbas uses his words to instill hate and perpetuate the violence between the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis and particularly the Jews. We will not claim that there are not those who are on the Israeli side who do not advocate for the removal of the Arab Palestinians by any means necessary. We will tell you that they are not the ones who are in power. The people in power now and since 1948 in Israel have desired living in peace and preferably cooperatively side by side with our Arab neighbors. Our Arab neighbors have not been as cooperative in this venture since the dawn of the very first day of Israeli existence when their armies poured across our borders intent on a complete and total slaughter of every Jew and all too many of the Muslims, Christians and anybody else they came across. The Mufti of Jerusalem, recently returned by the British after his comfortable time in Berlin during World War II, demanded of his Arab and Muslim brothers and sisters that they leave their homes and farms and get themselves behind the soon to be victorious Arab armies massed on the borders so that the Arab armies could freely massacre all they encountered without worry of murdering a Muslim. The majority of the Muslims living within what was declared Israel on May 15, 1948, left their homes and sought sage refuge behind the Arab armies who ran into a small problem and were unable of destroying the Jews as they had sworn they would do. This led to not being able to share the plunder with their brother and sisters who had fled to seek refuge awaiting the promised bounty the Mufti had declared would be theirs. When these Muslims attempted after the fighting ended to return to their homes, their brothers refused to allow them passage back into what was now established Israel. Instead of allowing them to return they were rounded into camps and have been quarantined as refugees in Arab lands, some are even kept in camps in Arab Palestine areas such as outside Gaza City and in Nablus where they are Palestinian refugees residing in camps in Palestinian areas. They are kept prisoners by their fellow Arabs simply to be used as a bludgeon to strike Israel and flood Israel with these “refugees” changing the demographics and destroying the Jewish State. These “refugees” presumably numbered around six-hundred-fifty-thousand which is close to the three-quarters of a million Jews expelled by the Arab world after Israel was declared. Should these two separate sets of refugees have been treated as were the refugees between Pakistan and India, Greece and Turkey, Poland and Germany, France and Germany and others which occurred due to the redrawing of the maps of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa and the liberation of colonial states all of which though not without violence likely prevented much further violence and conflict which may have otherwise ensued. Proof is the lingering nature of the Arab Israeli conflict partially due to refugees on one side as there are no Jewish refugee camps as the Jews were simply accepted by Israel and incorporated into the society and were never looked down on or seen as a potential weapon to be used against the nations from which they had been forced to flee. The Arabs are a completely different situation as their fellow Arabs have kept them in the camps and they are now viewed as lesser people who could never be permitted to integrate into the society around them despite the fact that many have relatives living in the nation surrounding their camp.

 

Of course another one of the demands made by Abbas is that Israel accepts these refugees into Israel and grants them citizenship before any peace treaty can be discussed. This is a ruse and deceitful attempt to subvert Israeli society without needing to have peace negotiations as once these refugees would be granted voting rights they would likely pose a majority population and be able to turn Israel into an Arab state making negotiations unnecessary. Abbas is fully aware of this fact as he knows that should Israel have ever accepted such a condition that there would be triple the number of refugees than there are in the camps as additional “refugees” would magically appear as the population transfer was in progress. This would be even more pronounced with the huge numbers of Iraqi and Syrian refugees who could be included as Arab Palestinians since there is no real difference between the Syrians, Iraqis and Arab refugees from 1948 as noted above when we stated many of the refugees have relatives living outside the camps because they stayed with their relatives when they were waiting for Israel to be decimated and crushed.

 

The French are the latest to have a brilliant solution in mind if only they can get the talks resumed. Initially the French idea was to start the talks and if there was no solution reached after six months, maybe a year at the most, then they would declare a border and establish the Arab Palestinian State by fiat (not the car, a decree). This was the brainchild of their Foreign Minister Jean-Louis Debré who was recently replaced and the new Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius taking over and backtracking the ultimatum removing such setting of borders and French recognition claiming rightfully that such gave the Palestinians no reason to negotiate fairly. We thank Hashem for such little favors such as changing the French Foreign Minister to a man with slightly higher reasoning than dislike for Israel. Still, the cards are stacked against Israel on the world stage and will continue to be that way until Israel herself takes a stronger and more assertive stance for her rights and future borders as well as who may be considered for citizenship. It is well past time for Israel to simply reassess the situation, set her borders as they legally were intended by the Churchill declarations White Papers and tell the Arab world to be glad Israel does not demand all of the British Mandate as recompense for all the terrorism and wars declared against her.

 

There would necessarily be a weeding-out period where many of the Palestinian establishment would necessarily need to find new nations of residence as they have proven beyond any doubt their subversive and untrustworthy natures. Perhaps Tunisia or Lebanon might welcome them or they could seek a bunker in Syria or Libya or wherever else they might find acceptance. As for the troubled generation which has been raised on hatred and trained for terrorism and little else, it is recognized and been theorized that it would take between thirty and fifty years to turn the Arab Palestinian society back into productive members of any society, even their own, and even then much of it would need be done against the desires of the students of hate who either have graduated school or are so far into their indoctrination as to make any new and normal educational systems unsuccessful in altering their programming. That is a heavy price but with time, effort and a combination of rewards and punishments the returning these lost souls to a regular and normal life must necessarily be attempted. The most ardent and severe cases which insist despite knowing the consequences to murder what would then be their own countrymen and women simply because they followed a different religion, these would necessarily need to face expulsion and exile to any nation outside of Gaza who would be willing to accept them. The training to fight and kill Israelis starts at a young age as shown in the video below where a father in Gaza where Hamas rules and there are no Israelis is filmed training his four year old son to fire and RPG rocket grenade, a four year old child.

 

 

 

There will eventually be only one way this conflict will ever be terminated and that is for one side to lose totally. If the Arab Palestinian side loses completely, they will likely continue to have their area under Hamas control in the Gaza but will be pushed from Judea and Samaria areas as well as Jerusalem. The Arab Palestinian demand that they control the Temple Mount and their insistence that prayers on the holy site be restricted solely for Muslims as all other prayer is an abomination and would putrefy the Temple Mount being overturned and the Waqf being disbanded and returned to Jordan will be a first step in resolving the situation. The Arab Palestinians already have their own governing body despite their leader, Mahmoud Abbas, refusing to hold election since the 2005 election being won by Hamas. They have their own police and run their own affairs in Areas A and B and Hamas along with Islamic Jihad rule another Arab Palestinian State in Gaza which could be considered an actual nation if they were to so declare and become recognized. I am sure a number of European nations would gladly recognize Hamastan but they would rather scream about their being occupied by Israel and the IDF despite neither being the case and the only time it is otherwise is after Hamas rockets rain down on Israeli cities, towns and kibbutzim often numbering in the hundreds per day. Most nations would declare all-out war long before the fiftieth rocket rained down on them from neighboring nations, territories or whatever entity launched them but Israel takes a few consecutive days of over a hundred rockets as Israel apparently must go through a whole series of warnings, entreatings and whatever the latest European and United Nations demands may be and still the media and world will treat the situation as if Israel were the aggressor. There will be those who will point out that Israel fired the first bullet, which will be true only because rockets, no matter their size, are not bullets. Don’t laugh as I have heard that as an argument that Israel always fires the first bullet in the war as nothing was covered in the news until Israel attacked. Ignoring attacks on Israel no matter their severity and only covering the Israeli response on whatever news these people were watching, perhaps Al Jazeera America or who knows or cares, does not make Israel the aggressor anywhere outside the United Nations and its chorus of NGOs and Commissions no matter what anybody claims. The fact that the truth can be so twisted is why the Arab Israeli conflict will not end until one side eliminates the other, period, sad but true.

Israeli Leadership Requires an Upgrade

 

Reading the Bible, Old Testament and particularly the Torah, it does not take long before one asks themselves where are the fighters for Eretz Yisroel as are told about in both the Torah and Bible. Just a quick list we find Abraham who likely was the first man to use special forces tactics and a nighttime attack somewhere between midnight and two in the morning to free Lot and his family from the slavers who had taken them captive. Where are those like Jacob who fought an Angel pretty much to a standstill or some might say overpowered the angel while receiving only one serious injury to himself. Then there is Moses who fought the Midianites, the Amalekites, brought forth water from a rock as a miracle from Hashem, taught the Torah to the Israelites and assisted the building of the Mishkan. Then there was Joshua, Deborah, Samson, King Saul, David and Solomon as well as many other heroes. Then there were the wise and fearless all of whom showed their courage, convictions and faith in Hashem and only then were they found worthy of Hashem’s miracles. Even the parting of the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds for you modern revisionists) would never had happened had not Nachshon, from the tribe of Judah, not only jumped into the sea but walked out until he was up to his nostrils and about to take a deep breath before the sea parted. This is one of the main truths from the Bible which today is summed up by the proverb; Hashem helps those who help themselves. We must take the first step and in some instances we take those steps and Hashem foils our efforts simply so that Hashem can display that it is Hashem who saves us and assists all that we do and all of it is in service of Hashem. This was proven during the last Gaza War when a rocket was tracked by an Iron Dome unit, those anti-missile and artillery intercepting batteries which shoot interceptor ultra-high speed missiles which strike and neutralize incoming rockets, missiles, mortars, artillery and anything else launched at Israel short range with over a 90% kill rate, which indicated it would strike central Tel Aviv business district in the area of the central train and bus stations where the high rise building are located thus a threat to tens of thousands should it strike. The actual words of the commanding officer of the Iron Dome officer after they had fired three times and missed the incoming rocket all three times, nearly impossible, he saw that, “Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that…sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a G0d!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of G0d send that missile into the sea.” We reported more on this miracle here. This battery proved they would act as they tried and tried and tried and in the end it was Hashem who saved Tel Aviv from an awful fate. Another thing I can tell you as one who fired anti-tank missiles for Uncle Sam, wind has a very marginal effect on a rocket or missile’s trajectory and a wind capable of redirecting a rocket to turn and a land mile off to the west from a northward trajectory would have really upset anything not nailed down in Tel Aviv including such minor things as busses and anything short of a locomotive and that would be debatable.

So, where are we leading with all of these little stories and examples? We look at the Israeli leadership and they are always so fretting the reactions of the European Union, European governments, the United States Congress, the American President, the United Nations, Russia, Kathmandu, well maybe not Kathmandu as Israel is loved in Nepal after the aid hospital and search and rescue teams we sent to aid them after that horrific shaking that rumbled through that Himalayan country destroying the capital and many of the villages throughout the nation and Israel sent medical assistance even to small villages halfway up some rather impressively tall slopes. It is somewhat understandable that Israel does what it can to remain on good ground with the United States as they are a major, actually sole, provider of fighters and helicopters. This was at the time deemed a good idea when the United States offered to provide both F-15 and F-16 fighters if Israel would stop their design and production of the Lavi fighter Jet. The Lavi would have been a direct competitor with the F-16 and the United States probably figured they would rather have one less competitor in the fighter jet department so they offered Israel a really good deal and also promised they would make sure Israel maintained air superiority in the Middle East. Well, with F-15 JSF being sold to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and potentially Turkey and who knows who else such as, Heaven forbid, Iran; Israeli air superiority apparently is not going to be so guaranteed down the road in five or six years when these Arab nations have the same exact aircraft and more of them in each nation such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Still the Israeli leadership bends over backwards to please the United States and even please President Obama with the sole example of leadership coming when Prime Minister Netanyahu and every other Israeli political leader, even those from the opposition playing the loyal opposition which is something rare these days, with the opposition to the heinous Iran Nuclear Deal which will give Iran a path to nuclear weapons in at most twelve years and more likely eight years assuming they are not currently producing their second run of them using an even improved thermonuclear design given them by North Korea. Otherwise Israeli leadership bows and scrapes before virtually every other nation which demands Israel limit building homes for Jews in Jerusalem or Hevron or Bet El while also demanding that Israel both allow many Europeans to build residences for Palestinian Arabs in Areas which were forbidden them under the Oslo Accords but apparently the only nation bothering to obey treaty limitation is Israel and they are going even further and obeying limitation which supercede any treaty. Such fearfulness and timidity has not served Israel well as all it has done is encourage Europeans and the United States to demand more concessions and more concessions and even more where Israel simply bows and scrapes and almost mindlessly obeys as if such was in Israel’s best interests.

 

The question which must be asked and resolved by Israeli leaders is where has polite concession after concession gotten Israel. The answer is they have become a doormat which everybody steps on their way to ask almost reverently of Mahmoud Abbas what he would like Israel to gift him for the privilege of having him meet with them, shake hands with whatever Prime Minister Israel has elected and then spit in Israel’s face and walk away pocketing the concessions the European or American forced from Israel on their way home stepping once more on the doormat. This has cost Israel any respect they had ever gained through the years and watching the spineless actions whittle away any respect Israel might have had has been disheartening. Remembering the valor and will-do, which is one step more audacious than simply can-do, which was exhibited in such bold and daring missions such as the raid on Entebbe Airport to free hijack hostages and the stern pride exhibited by Prime Minister Menachem Begin whose resolve and respect he earned assisted in the making of a peace with Egypt. Then there were the great deeds which were actually committed by the likes of Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ya’alon back during their time in the IDF where they had committed deeds of a nature similar to that committed by the young soldier now being politically sacrificed before the court of political correctness and seemingly in anticipation of European and United Nations simply going “Tisk, tisk, you had better punish that man for killing the enemy who had already stabbed one soldier.” Israel is in a war and in wars you actually shoot your enemies with intent to kill them; but not Israel as we shoot them with rubber bullets or if we use real bullets we are to shoot their legs. Shooting terrorists in their legs already did not incapacitate one determined terrorist who after being shot in both legs, one of them twice, still managed to sink his hatchet into another victim which finally convinced the people with the guns to shoot him somewhere more vital and then he stopped swinging his hatchet at people and will never again commit such a heinous assault. That is the only way you prevent your enemy from ever killing your soldiers, and with these terrorist that includes your civilians who apparently are legitimate targets for the terrorists despite the terrorists being treated like an endangered species and their lives treated as more important. The Rules of Engagement (ROE) are upside down as when you have an enemy who is sworn to murder every last person in your country, and in the case of Hamas and Islamic Jihad they want to kill every Jew everywhere, you do not allow them to live for another day and try again. And as the same government who demands that the terrorists not be killed but disarmed and taken alive as that is the humane thing to do, war is not humane, and then trades over a thousand of these terrorists taken humanely in order to retrieve one single soldier, then it is better to not be quite so humane. There are those out there who will claim that I am a monster for even suggesting the killing of these poor unfortunate terrorists who are only acting against the occupation. There is no occupation unless you count the Arabs who are squatting on lands promised to the Zionist Congress as sacrosanct and guaranteed by the crown of England and by the League of Nations and theoretically also the United Nations according to Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The leaders of the European nations, the members of the United Nations, the Americans and anybody else capable of reading knows already that Israel was defined as we stated in the article yesterday, Israel is all of Israel as defined by the San Remo Conference and other inclusive documents from the end of World War I. Not only the Middle Eastern and North African maps were completely redrawn but so was the map of Eastern Europe. It was not restricted to the Arab World as claimed by so many, and that marked pretty much the beginning of European colonial enterprises in the area which had been colonized by the Arab Muslims and their converted allies for over a thousand years before the Europeans ever arrived. The colonialism label is simply a guilt trip being laid on the European and the Western world in general.

 

Another item that the spineless leaders have allowed by not standing up against the false charges has been the claim that Israel is a colonizing power. Israel was formed from part of the British Mandate from which both Iraq and Jordan were also formed. If Israel is a colonizing power then so is Jordan and Iraq as all were made from the same British Mandate and then Syria and Lebanon also would be colonial powers as they were formed from the French Mandate. Israel is an indigenous peoples who have returned to their ancestral lands and were residing in the lands south of the Litany River through the Negev Desert and on both sides of the Jordan River and Sea of Galilee since approximately 1200 BCE with a continuous Jewish presence in areas of the land and definitely in Jerusalem with many centuries having a Jewish majority population in Jerusalem while Jerusalem was never the capital of any Arab or Muslim nation. The Israeli leadership should be as proud of their country returning to its homeland and making the deserts bloom, draining swamp lands and making them furtive and building a modern nation while under constant threat of war in the face of terrorism and seemingly ignoring all adversity to thrive. Israel because of her people was rated the eleventh happiest nation in which to live placing it ahead of the United States and obviously virtually all if not all of the Arab and Muslim worlds. Now we need to have leaders equally as happy to lead with the same esprit de corps that is so apparent in the people. Yes, Israel has its problems but the most threatening and dangerous of these challenges needs to be met with vigor and nerve and dare we say, chutzpah, and simply declare what we know to be true and our lands as originally defined; and if there are those who object, well, sucks to be them.

As the World Burns

 

The Arab Spring started with the self-immolation of a vegetable barker over his frustrations with the insurmountable legal requirements and licensing which made making a profit impossible and expressed his feeling of utter hopelessness of his life in one blazing protest sparking a wave of protests which were to spread. The government of Tunisia fell within days followed by Egypt with an assisting push and a shove by United States President Obama pushing Egyptian President Mubarak out the door and all but guaranteed the Muslim Brotherhood would take control of Egypt. Little was known at the time that this had been the design by President Obama. The so-called Arab Spring rolled into Libya next and with a great amount of assistance from NATO powers Muammar Gaddafi was knocked from power almost solely due to the air strikes and other NATO assistance but the plan for any reconstruction failed leaving Libya broken into its tribal elements and some areas under the control of the influence of al-Qaeda and other areas under Islamic State with the rest under tribal control which may prove more stable a practice than the imposed state system from Sykes Picot, the one complaint made by ISIS before they decided to go on Jihad as the New Caliphate which had some degree of merit, but lust for power always overrules sensibility. The next stops were Yemen and Syria. These appear to be currently the play of power of Iran using Yemen to gain control of vital waterways off of southwestern end where the Red Sea exits into the Gulf of Aden and on into the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean all through the choke point known as Bab-el-Mandeb which is the name of the straights with which Iran wrests control for all shipping traffic through the red Sea including Suez Canal traffic and sea traffic from Israel and Jordan coming south through the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea on to Africa or Asia. Closure of this vital waterway would provide a causes belli of war should Iran block this waterway bringing Iran in direct contention of Europe, the far east and much of commercial shipping which would normally use the Suez Canal. Such a blockage could rapidly escalate out of control with nation after nation declaring their rights being challenged and commerce being directly affected adversely.

 

But the Arab Spring quickly became the Arab Winter as Egypt had a second set of massive demonstrations even larger than before which were more widely attended including students and businesspeople and others from nearly every walk of life which eventually led to the Egyptian military replacing the sitting government which had been on a fast track to implement Sharia, at least the interpretation of Sharia by the Muslim Brotherhood which they would have inevitably used to place themselves in the sole position of appointing the future Presidents and members of parliament thus giving themselves dictatorial powers. These new moves came to attempt to change the military hierarchy which was one step too far and the military balked and took down President Morsi and his government claiming to be doing so in the name of the people. Meanwhile there was a reshuffling of the Tunisian government to make it more representative of the people and guarding against trading the old dictatorial governance for religious dictatorial governance, a similar but less drastic measure than the one necessitated in Egypt. And the demonstrations began in Syria but unlike the previous demonstrations the one in Syria did not receive the full and hardy backing of the Western nations thus the peoples demonstrations slowly morphed into a disastrous civil conflict which itself morphed into a large Sunni against Shiite war front which spawned the Islamic State which took control over a sizeable area of Syria and Iraq. The latest development has been the introduction of serious air power and missile assaults by the Russians in defense of their naval base at Latakia, Syria and in support of their chosen ally, Bashir al-Assad and the introduction of IRGC troops, the special forces of the Iranian military.

 

Eventually the Egyptian governance worked its way to what all hope will be regular, open, free and fair elections on schedule with the results truly representative of the Egyptian electorate. Hopefully the same can be said for Tunisia which also appears to have settled from its early days as the lead of the changes which swept much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). There were also the unsuccessful or muted. The first were any demonstrations in Saudi Arabia or any of the nearby GCC countries such as Bahrain, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. There potentials for demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, where a number of Shiite Imams had given sermons to emotionally prepare their adherents to challenge the authorities, many ran out into the streets that fateful afternoon and looked up and down the street and realizing that they were cut off at the end of the block at both ends by security forces, armed so as not to need to discuss principles; so the Shiites calmed themselves and went home without incident in virtually every case and any case where the reaction was different was squelched so fast that it made no news. There was one exception which was Bahrain. Bahrain is ruled by a Sunni Monarch but is predominately Shiite and this led to street demonstrations of a severity which the Monarch was not willing to use the force which would have been required to put down the rioting demonstrators but also could not allow the lawlessness to continue. This required the King Hamad Ibn Isa Al Khalifa to make a call to his friends over the causeway in Saudi Arabia for assistance. The one thing known to the people of Bahrain that should the Saudis come to the rescue of their King, then they may have gone a bit too far and their time left to continue their actions is limited to as long as it takes the Saudi Arabian military to arrive to restore order. This was a particularly large demonstration which almost lasted four hours until they saw a disturbance heading towards the Island of Bahrain along all six lanes of the causeway between the Saudi Arabian mainland and their Island, three lanes in each direction, except this was all six lanes heading for the Island. As the vehicles came closer it became obvious these were Abrams tanks and Armored Personnel Carriers which meant that unremitting and lethal force was coming to their demonstration. This took the wind out of their sails and quickly the demonstrators dispersed rather quickly and peaceably with a small number of fools not heeding the obvious. They were quickly subdued and turned over to the Bahraini officials and the Saudis returned home a week or two later with a small rotation of forces remaining for a month or two as a reminder.

 

There were some rather sizeable demonstrations in Iran where pleadings were chanting for President Obama to assist their cries for freedom and representative governance. There was no reply from President Obama as he had this plan where he would be the one to bring Iran in from out in the cold through negotiations with the Supreme Leader. This plan had no room for new representative governance or for the people’s revolution. President Obama’s plan called for him bringing the previously unapproachable and immovable when it comes to that which he believes and the way he rules and the desires and directions he wishes to take the nation are completely unchallenged as his word is treated as if it were the words from Allah himself. This would eventually play out well after the demonstrators were routed by the Basenji Militias and other extreme police and security forces. The universities were put under a lockdown with security and Islamic observance groups patrolling the dorms and grounds. The end result was an additional term listening to the rantings of President Ahmadinejad, violently put down democracy demonstrations, and after a painfully extracted and pathetic set of surrenders which may or may not be finished and a nuclear treaty with a ruling elite who are not exactly known for keeping promises, meaning what they say or doing what they say or in the end having said what they said as everything is negotiable and even the meaning is open for an ever changing series of interpretations even to the point that what they say means exactly what they mean it to mean at the moment they say it. Deals with the mad hatter or Cheshire cat would be more trustworthy, and didn’t we decide that the President was a lookalike for the Cheshire Cat such that we labeled him Cheshire man as in the picture below. Perhaps that picture may be the closest thing to an accurate depiction of the reality dealt with in making the Iran Nuclear Deal.

The problems from the Arab Winter have just begun. The real problem is still a full generation away, a good fifteen years before everything begins to blossom and explode upon the Western world. Presumably, Iran will legally be capable of perfecting and testing ballistic missiles which will give them all the time they could possibly need as they will be completely free to produce, or should we say finally assemble the necessary parts to make their nuclear warheads using the technology perfected by their scientists or by following the methods used by either North Korea and thus be completely ready to produce deliverable warheads using such designs or be using their own designs, whichever way they decide to branch into nuclear warhead designs. Iran can take their time and while working on their nuclear warhead designs and production they can begin the hardest part of the challenge facing them, the proselytizing within and outside of the Islamic communities in Europe and the United States and other Western World Nations to drastically increase the numbers of Shiite Muslims more so amongst those living outside MENA though there will be some moves outside of the ardently Sunni states such as the GCC, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey (though Turkey might be a more ripe for change than many believe). This will be accomplished with the monies freed up by the Iran nuclear deal and target the young who may find Shiite Islam’s dynamic Jihadi strengths more attractive than the more sedate Sunni Islam which is a more conservative approach.

 

The next three years will see between thirty-five-thousand and fifty-thousand “refugees” from MENA invading Europe and sending a fair number to the United States and Canada, especially if these nations remain under leftist control, especially the immigrations offices. Do not get me wrong, the majority, even the vast majority of these will be actual refugees as almost any family which can manage to get to Europe or the United States, the Western world, the first world, such a transit would be a welcome improvement in their lives as even the poorest family in the Western World live in a level almost unimagined other than for the wealthiest in their nations in much of the MENA world. Over the rest of the decade these refugees will likely repatriate with another ten to fifteen people per family. Eventually there will literally be an army ready to impose Sharia across all of Europe and there will be swaths of land in the United States which will be “no-go zones” just as they have in areas around many British, French, Swedish and other European countries where police and even fire and rescue personnel refuse to enter except in force, will populate many areas around numerous cities and training areas may be found in the countryside acreages around Europe and the United States. What many are unaware of is that there exist such training ‘cities’ outside numerous cities in the United States already and these ‘cities’ are well guarded and only allow Islamists known to their group and they hold firearms training and some even hold tactical training and live-fire exercises.

These are the stark realities facing Western Society which the governments are ignoring at their people’s own peril. Why these known camps are being left to their own devices while the FBI infiltrates neighborhood militias and paramilitary militias which often consist of some friends who are ex-military and enjoy target shooting and having paintball outings or even some which simply are reenacting Civil War or Revolutionary War battles. The future is not yet written in stone but it had been stenciled into wet cement and it is starting to dry and will take a while to cure thereafter but the stencils are still malleable, their final story will be up to the people if they decide to take government into their own direction and this may mean many people making whatever sacrifices are necessary and perhaps work for or make a needed new political party or influential branch of a party like the Tea Party had started to make inroads but it will take a long term commitment and it will take families deciding the time has come for regular families to take charge of the governments such that the governments will serve the future of the Western World and the family unit with an emphasis on control of the education of the children as they will be the future and if they are not better prepared than we were, then there will be even less hope, and hope is all there is right now and we cannot lose hope or our future.
