Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Iran, NIAC, United States, Congress vs. President Obama

 

 

There are a number of crucial events and societal revelations all holding a great propensity to go awry traveling astray of their reputed paths and expectations. Yesterday a full-page advertisement was placed in the New York Times by a political non-governmental organization (NGO) called the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). This advertisement likely cost them upwards of $200,000 unless the New York Times welcomed the advertisement to such a degree as to offer NIAC a discounted price, something we are unable to prove such actually transpired but decided it was worth mentioning the possibility. The NIAC nonprofit NGO has been perceived to represent the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei (Persian: علی حسینی خامنه‌ای‎) being his spokesman in the United States using whatever medium they feel will achieve the most influence reaching the targeted people be they in the White House, members of Congress, the public in general or even a targeted audience. The audiences targeted by this advertisement were the people in the United States government, influential people from the public and even the public in generally or at least those who read the New York Times. This advertisement attacked Israeli Prime Minister coming to speak before a joint session of the United States Congress, and accused Speaker of the House John Boehner of “siding with a foreign leader” against the elected leader of the United States, President Obama, whose efforts have placed the P5+1 on the “verge of a diplomatic victory that will prevent war and prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.” This advertisement targeted the growing divide between President Obama with the Republicans as represented by Speaker of the House Boehner and by association with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu with whom the President has huge disagreements over the Iranian nuclear weapons program. This disagreement is merely the latest uproar between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. It was this split between the President and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the American people’s expressed exhaustion with having American troops fighting what appear to be senseless wars all across the Middle East and gaining no advantage nor reaching a more peaceable relations that NIAC President Trita Parsi stated in a press release that, “The U.S. and its closest allies are on the brink of a historic deal that will both prevent an Iranian bomb and war with Iran, and Congressional hawks are orchestrating political stunts with foreign leaders to try to kill it. The American people do not want another senseless military adventure and certainly don’t consider Benjamin Netanyahu to be their commander in chief.” This was added in order to take aim at the suspicions that the Islamic world believes the rest of the world also suspects the Jews generally and the Israelis in particular of possessing far too much influence over the United States governance.

 

One day earlier, on Saturday , a senior figure in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Mujtabi Du Al-Nour, threatened that Tel Aviv could be destroyed “in ten minutes” if Israel attacked Iran’s nuclear facilities. He further claimed that the Iranian rockets can reach the heart of Tel Aviv within six or seven minutes, “even before the rockets of the Zionists reach us.” This was simply additional bluster by Iranian military leadership from within the IRGC elite units touting weapons superiority over the Israeli weaponry. As much of the Iranian systems are produced by them and within Iranian borders, this makes assessing the effectiveness of their weapon systems impossible; but if previous records and ability to produce systems with equal or superior abilities against Israeli weapon systems, such attempts are next to impossible. Often these type statements are made with the intention of impressing their own people just as much if not more than it is to be taken as an actual threat from the Iranians. That Iran has thousands of missiles and nearly countless rockets capable of being launched and reaching Tel Aviv is a valid threat and not any different from Israeli estimates of the Iranian capabilities. Israel has been made aware of the extent of their level of competence and expertise. The question is whether or not the Iranians would place weapons of mass destruction (WMD) atop these weapons and if so how many such warheads they would utilize and if so exactly which variety and in what numbers. Of course such determination is only important if Israel would resort to replying with weapons of mass destruction in return and if Israel has decided to answer chemical weapons, biological weapons and nuclear weapons using same kind of weapons. Should the Israeli plan be to simply respond to any attack utilizing WMDs of any variety, be it chemical, biological or nuclear, the Israeli response would come in the form of a nuclear response. Such a response should be made known before there is any such assault from Iran and thus after an exchange of fire the Iranians cannot claim they did not understand how Israel might respond.

 

Then there are the coming Israeli elections and the forming of a coalition and thereby name the Prime Minister and set government policies. The fact that the likelihood that current Prime Minister Netanyahu will be called upon to make the next ruling coalition is only disputed by the polls being touted by the media which continues to depict the race as close between Netanyahu’s Likud Party and the combined ticket of Labor with Hatnua and having a shared Prime Ministership between Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak Hertzog. The media has claimed there is the threat of horrific evils should Netanyahu and the Likud win and the combined ticket of Hertzog and Livni ended up in the opposition. There was a report which claims that a senior source in an article in Arutz Sheva titled Senior Source: Bibi Plans Gov’t with Labor, Haredim has informed the media that Prime Minister Netanyahu plans on forming a Unity Government with his initial coalition by inviting the Labor/Hatnua parties along with Shas to form the government and lock out Jewish Home and the other religious Zionist parties. Such a coalition would result in the complete capitulation to whatever President Obama would demand of Israel concerning the formation of an Arab state using the 1949 Armistice Lines as the new borders and a sharing of Jerusalem. This would be accepted by Netanyahu as a result of making such a coalition as not accepting the formation of an Arab state utilizing whatever President Obama would demand as the main parties forming the coalition would be Labor/Hatnua which would hold the coalition to fulfilling their main concern, the forming of an Arab state as President Obama desires and along the Green Line, also called the 1967 lines or the 1949 ceasefire armistice lines and named by Israeli United Nations Abba Eban as the Auschwitz Borders as he predicted that Israel returning to the borders as defined before the Six Day War would leave Israel indefensible against another combined Arab assault. This, if it proves true, will mean that Bibi Netanyahu, another IDF veteran from an elite group and as well respected for his military service as was former Prime Minister Sharon very well might be heading to making another unilateral disengagement just as was performed by Sharon with Gaza except this time the area to be gifted to the Arab terrorist groups will have easy ability from the overlooking Judean Hills to launch rockets directly into Tel Aviv and the heart of Israeli society targeting well over three-quarters of Israeli population, business, industry, power generation and virtually everything else one might imagine including the nuclear reactor at Dimona. The only reason which we have been able to put together as to why Prime Minister Netanyahu would form such a government is in order to attack Iran with the backing of the entire government and the people as such an assault may be required once Israel reads and fully understands the ramification and realities of the world once President Obama with the backing of the P5+1 default giving Iran a green light to attain breakout existence and making Iran a threshold nuclear state capable of producing nuclear weapons at their choosing with merely a two or three week period to reactivate the hardware required to make the ninety percent enriched uranium and producing two bombs a week within eight to ten weeks. In order to prevent Iran from having such ability in the present time Israel would be required to destroy the nuclear sites within Iran and to do so and repeat doing so each time Iran rebuilds their nuclear weapons production stations. This would mean that information which Israeli intelligence has gathered is so convincing of how dire the situation is as a result of the feckless negotiating by President Obama such that even Tzipi Livni would realize that before returning to negotiations with Mahmoud Abbas about the formation of a poisonous state in Judea and Samaria the situation with Iran will need to be defused otherwise that threat would make any concessions impossible. Benyamin Netanyahu making such a broad and diverse coalition would only make such reasonable if a combined and unified nation is required for the situation Israel is facing and both Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Rivlin have seen and discussed the situation and already reached their conclusions and planned for the making of a Unity Government. That Prime Minister is considering forming a unity government with Labor can only mean we are on the verge of an existential war which will require a united nation and all-inclusive governance.

 

The final event is the finalizing whatever agreement is in the workings between the P5+1 and Iran over the Iranian uranium enrichment and nuclear weapons system. President Obama has been working on finding some slight of language which will permit him to sign a treaty for the United States and enforce said treaty without receiving the approval by the Senate. President Obama has had his advisors, czars and other appointees assisting in the making and signing of a treaty putting it into effect establishing the international application without fulfilling the requirements for making a treaty or agreement between the United States. Such an agreement very well may force Israel’s hand and have Israel leading a coalition of the willing which would possibly include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and other Arab states all of whom are petrified with fear and very well may be willing to even join an organized resistance against Iran and even allow said alliance to be organized around and led by Israel. This may be the near future should Iran be permitted to retain assembled and not required to disassemble her nineteen-thousand centrifuges of which a sizeable number of these centrifuges are their latest version and they are six times more capable than their older models. It is very likely possible that Iran is simply waiting for the end of negotiations and likely to blow off reaching any agreement and immediately start their dash to produce a nuclear arsenal. Once the negotiations have been permitted and accepted as the manner of addressing the limitation of Iran thus preventing the Iranian governance and military from attaining nuclear breakout, that allows Iran to easily start making nuclear bombs and stocking an entire arsenal. The guarantee being proffered by the United States that they would be capable of detecting any moves by Iran in time to prevent their making nuclear devices is on shaky ground as proven by the United States having missed catching the Soviet Union, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea and South Africa from reaching nuclear breakout becoming a nuclear armed power and a member of the nuclear club, a club which is steadily losing its exclusivity.

 

The near future is appearing to be exciting enough to give even the most optimistic of us reason to pause and even to stumble before regaining our balance while observing the earth losing its balance. Meanwhile anti-Semitism is once again spreading across Europe and the call is once again blaming the Jews for the world’s ills. The difference this time is the Jew is the state of Israel. The Middle East is heating towards a boiling point and may explode very soon. Iran is still financing and arming terrorists worldwide. Iran has even gotten into the business of arming and financing Sunni terrorists such as Hamas. Talking about Sunni terrorists, there is a new Sunni terrorist group called ISIS (or IS) which is gaining recruits from the world over and also is being reinforced by other treacherous Sunni terror groups joining their front including one of the larger terror groups in Libya and from Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and along the Muslim/Christian divide in western Africa, Boko Haram. Meanwhile Iraq has split into three states, the Shiite south being protected by a loose alliance of the United States and Iran while the north is becoming a Kurdish run and protected state which is also receiving some aid from the United States and even being further armed by Iran as well and between them in the Center of Iraq and slowly expanding is ISIS. The United States is also assisting in the fight against ISIS in Syria where the government of Bashir Assad is fighting for its life with aid coming from Hezballah, Iran and air support from the United States who are also presumably attempting to remove Assad. Confused enough yet? Well, try this on for size, Israel is loosely allied with Saudi Arabia and Egypt against ISIS and also may be developing an above the table alliance against ISIS with Jordan. Will wonders ever cease? Add to this the fact that the United States President is working against Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and definitely Israel. The final relationship has deteriorated to the point that President Obama had begun to attack the Prime Minister of Israel claiming that he is attempting to disrupt the negotiations with Iran just as President Obama has almost completed the terms of the United States surrender which Europe appears to be satisfied will not destroy Europe immediately. The entire mess reminds me of the song Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire of the video below.

Often in places I have lived where the summers are hot and the humidity rivals the temperatures with both in the mid to upper nineties you often hear the phrase, “It’s not the heat, it is the humidity.” Well, when it comes to the heat being generated out of Washington D.C. and particularly out of the White House the high temperature of positions and equally heated debates and accusations we can only point out that this time that phrase would read, “It’s not the Humidity it is the HUMINT.” If anything the humidity, if there is any, it would be the result of the cold water being thrown at the invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress by Speaker of House Boehner by President Obama and his faithful helpers from his echo chamber of Czars and other sycophantic advisors along with the mainstream media, the liberal punditry and much of the self-professed Jewish Israeli supporters who choose to support only those Israelis who cower at even the softest of whispers from on high in Washington D.C. and who bow and claim before any Democrat President, “We obey and we listen.” The real reason that the White House and their hordes of supporters and the President in particular do not want to have Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before the Congress and the media is that he might say some truths which the White House and particularly the President are hoping the Congress and the people, especially the people, prefer they never hear about the point at which the Iranian nuclear weapons program has attained, how so very close they are to the breakout point and potentially actually have passed that and need but six to ten short weeks to become a nuclear power with multiple warheads perched atop ICBMs capable of striking anywhere in the globe. Further, the White House is completely aware that the Israelis have something the United States does not possess, HUMINT which stands for Human Intelligence or people who have infiltrated the target system or units to a point where they are able to gather data, information and specifics which are impossible to ascertain with satellites, aircraft, drones, or any other form of externally controlled intelligence systems. Israel very likely has people within some of if not most of the Iranian nuclear and military research facilities and units who have full knowledge of every last detail including what the nuclear scientists had with their morning coffee. There is very likely tangible hands-on information which the Israeli Prime Minister would be capable of giving the United States Congressional members in closed sessions or in one-on-one meetings. Of course such HUMINT cannot and will not be spoken of in public or before the media unless it is so important to making the Israeli case and the urgency so viscerally understood even by a casual observer that it is central to the reasons that The Israeli Prime Minister is suffering the sling and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing, end them. Thank you Mr. William Shakespeare who said it years ago and it is so opportune to this situation where Netanyahu likely did debate to himself, “To be or not to be.” He has chosen to be and to face the ridiculous and outrageous slanders because he also knows that he is among the few who know what must be said and that from amongst those knowing these facts, that he alone has the credibility and standing to state these truths as these truths are not self-evident.

 

Israel has spent years, nay, decades slowly working intelligence officers up through the ranks and often having to commit acts they found abhorrent but do them they had to in order to remain a viable agent. Dead agents only mean that the information that often is so vital will not be able to be witnessed and passed along until another agent, possibly one already planted within, can work their way to a post with access to the desired secrets. There was a story of an Israeli agent who eventually paid for his love of country with his life about whom this take has been related. The Mossad spy, Eli Cohen, who had attained high rank in the Syrian army, I believe he reached the rank of Colonel, was reviewing the new concealed emplacements for artillery on the Golan Heights when he noted the unnecessary stress and heated conditions the Syrian soldiers were being forced to sustain being in the sun during the hot summer days and suggested that a tree be planted to provide them with shade. During the Six Day War the Israelis simply targeted the base of the trees and presto, no more artillery emplacements on the Golan Heights to target their advancing armor and ground forces. After relaying this I realized it sounded a bit impossible, so I researched corroboration and found some here and here in Wikia Military site. I can personally attest for the two separate people who relayed this story to me with one having been in those units charging the Golan Heights and possibly alive to retell the tale thanks to Eli Cohen, the one part of the story I am relying on Wikia as the story I remembered, the name, well, not so much.

 

I told you that true story so I could show the solid benefit of people in place to influence decisions as well as to report items they were privileged to hear or learn through their positions and report those things directly which are important enough to risk such communications or to use less urgent and more secretive methods which are the more usual routes for reporting items. In rare cases such intelligence operatives may break their cover and flee in order to report something so urgent that there is no other way in which to report their hot information. The truth and reality is that a person within the enemies military or other sensitive departments can learn so much more than even the most technically advanced surveillance as high tech surveillance cannot build relations by which to gain secreted information normally hidden deep within the layers of government, especially items such as the most clandestine nuclear facilities which Iran is operating unknown and thus not under satellite surveillance and such can be built if care is taken to avoid leaving evidence viewable by satellites during their regularly scheduled overpass. Human within the walls, so to speak, also are privileged to rumors and can take advantage of other foibles such as weak links or somebody known to brag about their placement or other intangibles which only exist on a personal level. These are the avenues which the United States surrendered when they brought to an end their HUMINT branches being permitted to employ people whose personal character may be seen to be compromised or unsavory. This was part of the Church Commission demands made to make the CIA and other intelligence collection agencies and departments more respectable. The most egregious demand made was for all agents to have clean records and ending the use of people with any criminal background. Back when this was discussed I thought to myself that wouldn’t there be a number of criminal activities which would be preferable on an application to be a spy living in the enemy lands and operating within their enemy’s government and possibly their military or even their intelligence agency. Being able to break into a locked and secured office or other building, being able to lie convincingly and numerous other abilities which any normal person would find objectionable would be assets for a clandestine operations officer. But the Church Commission would have nothing of that, no sir, none. With little human assets within Iran, if any, the United States intelligence community has had to rely completely upon satellites and electronic eavesdropping and wiretapping along with electronic intelligence using communications monitoring ships and other assets to listen to the entire spectrum of RF electronics signals and other high tech means for grabbing information and other data which can permit making intelligent assessments of the state and degree of the Iranian nuclear program. Using these systems to their utmost capabilities, the United States was able to detect the Iranian nuclear weapons program about fifteen years after its inception in which time Iran already had a number of enrichment sites and was building a heavy water reactor to produce plutonium for another route to nuclear weaponry.

 

They had little if any information on the nuclear sites, researchers, developments, military operations and other related items such as rocket research including missile development, arming systems, guidance systems, interceptor avoidance software, missile propellant research, missile ranges, mobile systems, missile silos, anti-missile systems, and various other research and development areas and deployments. It is information such as this which is the driving force behind Speaker of the House Boehner inviting Prime Minister Netanyahu and the reason the Israeli Prime Minister accepted the invitation while this had little if anything to do with insulting the White House or President, making a campaign plea to the Israeli people or any other political ploy affecting either the United States or Israel other than providing the United States Congress with access to intelligence and to ask questions as to the fears and needs of Israel, an indispensable ally of the United States no matter what the mainstream leftist media has tried to spin things and nothing more. Prime Minister Netanyahu would probably have been better served by campaigning in Israel than he will be served giving meetings and closed briefings relating intelligence information and other things which by their very nature are not conducted before the cameras or in any way which can be divulged to the general population, the worst venue for campaigning is any venue which is held secretly for the reasons of security precautions. The only person making this a political affair has been the White House who, had they simply remained silent, would have allowed for Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak to the combined session of Congress, meet with those members of Congress requesting such meetings or whose committee had questions for the Prime Minister or those who will travel with the Prime Minister to answer questions for the members of Congress directly.

 

The Prime Minister will make a bigger campaign splash with his address to the AIPAC Conference for which he was likely to have been attending in person even if he was not speaking to Congress, especially to use it as a campaign speech as well as speaking to American Jews and others at the convention where there will be far more Israeli media coverage than will cover his speech to Congress and there will be no media at any meetings and private briefings the Prime Minister gives leading to absolutely no gain for his campaign. President Obama is the one using this as a campaign setting if anybody is and President Obama is campaigning as hard as he is able and in every way possible including deploying his national campaign director from the 2012 Presidential campaign to advise and utilize the same blanketing targeted areas to get the votes out and influence as many as can be reached knocking on doors with thousands of volunteers, potentially some from the United States but that remains to be seen, in an effort which they refer to as the campaign for Israeli government change. It sounds almost to be hope and change, well, I guess it is Hope to Change the Israeli government, but those working on these efforts are calling their efforts the “Anyone but Bibi” removing any doubt as to what the President directed them to work to accomplish. With their announced nonpartisan campaign, as they claim not to be supporting any candidate, which is true in a warped way, they simply want to prevent a single candidate from winning and my bet there are others they would also oppose. Can one be said to be supporting a candidate if they oppose all of their competing candidates? V2015 would claim the answer is ‘no.’ V2015 is attached to two groups in the United States, one goes under the name of V2015 or V15 for short and the other is One Voice. One Voice receives funding from the United States State Department and numerous other sources outside of Israel which are planned to be transferred to V2015 in Israel just before the actual election to allow them to pay off their debts and leave a minimum amount of time for any legal recourse to be deployed and acted upon, which was covered and reported by Haaretz, but solely in their Hebrew edition for reasons that are unfathomable, well, except that any Israelis from the United States or other English speaking nation might react smelling something rotten and not from Denmark. Something is definitely giving off some strong aromas that might not be pleasant and that hint of a smell of election fraud despite the decision thus far by the Israeli Attorney General’s initial decision. We will see what the Israeli electorate will think of such American presence stomping loudly trampling their elections for their government this March 17.

Are European Governments Accusations of Colonialism True?

The title is an interesting question no matter which direction you take aim, at Israeli building beyond the Green Line or perhaps other kinds of building beyond the Green Line. The European Union and numerous European governments’ claims against Israeli building beyond the Green Line, even within Jerusalem which Israel has annexed and granted citizenship with one guard in that they are allowed to vote in local elections for Jerusalem government positions including Mayor and the parliament but are restricted for now from voting in national elections until after the final borders have been set by negotiations and then further rights will be decided. Whether any building beyond the Green Line by Israel is colonialism or simply building on lands initially proposed as areas Israel would retain depends on a number of agreements and definitions. If you base your definitions on International Law then you might be surprised that according to treaties established after World War I and before the League of Nations and which set up the Mandate System which set certain lands to be reserved for establishing certain states for different populations, then you might want to read the San Remo Agreement which set up the British Mandate in order to establish a Jewish state. The British Mandate extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the western border of Iraq and from the French Mandate lands to the north and to Egypt and Saudi Arabia in the south. This was set aside for the Jewish state where by the dictates of the San Remo Agreement the Jewish state was to be a place reserved for the homeland of the Jewish people with provisions that any other people residing within the Mandate lands were entitled to religious freedom, freedom of speech, respected integrity of land ownership and other freedoms with the singular exception of political rights which were to remain under control of the Jewish leadership once the British determined there was sufficient Jewish presence to retain political and legal control over the lands.

 

This is where things became interesting. A few years into the British Mandate the numbers of Arabs moving into the Mandate areas was growing attracted by the promising increase in the economic activity which had begun growing in the second half of the Nineteenth Century with the initial outset of the Zionist movement and Jews starting to return to their ancestral homelands. The returning Jews added to an already healthy Jewish majority within Jerusalem, a presence and majority which stretched back almost three thousand years as these were Jews who had resided in Jerusalem since before the invasion by Alexander the Great and remained in Jerusalem surviving the atrocities and attempt to disperse the Jewish people to the far flung edges of the Roman Empire so as to punish them and destroy the Jewish people for all future time. The British under the name of Winston Churchill offered the Zionist Congress, the legal Jewish governance within and without of the British Mandate lands, a proposition where the British would be permitted to establish an Arab state for the Palestinian Arabs east of the Jordan River while the lands west of the Jordan River on to the Mediterranean Sea would remain inviolate for the Jewish state into the future and this would also allow the British to be able to make good on their promise to the Hashemite Family to give them lands to rule in exchange for their assistance in World War I, a promise probably made by T. E. Lawrence. The Zionist took the offer despite it reallocating over three-quarters (78%) of the British Mandate leaving them a narrow strip hugging the Mediterranean Sea as it was to their advantage to grant the Arabs their own lands thus they would be better situated to reach a majority population more readily. At this time the British referenced the Jews by calling them Palestinians and the Arabs were called Arabs or Egyptians, Syrians (the largest percentage of the Arab population as Syrian lands under the Ottoman Empire included all of both the French and British Mandates), Turks, Iraqis, Saudis, Tunisians, Yemeni, and other tribal names or even Arab Palestinians, in the case of mixed parentage which was rather common as time passed. By these stipulations the world’s scrambling and screaming to see who can be first to force a new Arab nation west of the Jordan River next to Israel and on as much land as is humanly possible are all working against International Law and many, if not all, of them are fully aware of this deceit.

 

But what if one believes the claims that an Arab state belongs sharing the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with Israel because Gaza and Judea and Samaria (called the “West Bank” by Jordan during their illegal occupation after the invasion to destroy the Jewish state after its birth in 1948) were never a part of Israel proper? This also gets into problems the further one peals back the layers of the onion. Let’s look a little deeper and see how it was the Gaza, Judea and Samaria became believed to be rightful Arab lands. Before Israel was born there was a decision made by the United Nations General Assembly recommending a means of the forming of two states starting on May 15, 1948, with one being Jewish and one being Arab. This resolution was like every other resolution out of the General Assembly of the United Nations, a simple suggestion which in order to be binding must be accepted by all parties to the resolution. This resolution was made to the Zionist Congress as the Jewish organization pertaining to the Jewish establishment of a state and the Arab League as the representatives of any Arab interests in forming a state. The Zionist Congress agreed while the Arab League refused the resolution as they had very different plans, they were going to take the entire area and divide it amongst Syria, Egypt and Jordan. This is where things get confusing. With the rejection by the Arab League there was no longer any claim calling for the placement of an Arab state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and all plans now reverted to the state under International Law. As we know from the above, International Law granted these lands to a Jewish state unless the Jewish interests decided otherwise and despite the Jewish legal body being willing to allow the General Assembly Resolution, that dissolved as soon as the Arab League refused and Israel, as the Jewish state, now became the sole rightful nation as of May 15, 1948 over all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. So, why is there any contesting of this now?

 

When May 15, 1948, rolled around there were over a half dozen Arab national armies consisting of but not limited to Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the forces under the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini (who had spent almost all of World War II in Berlin or other areas of the Nazi controlled Europe and made frequent broadcasts calling for the Arabs to rise up and vanquish the British forces in Egypt and British Mandate lands) some forces from Pakistan and Sudan as well as numerous militias and other forces all crammed into the lands surrounding the nascent state of Israel. After a number of cease fires and reigniting of hostilities, the fighting came to a final halt on the different fronts as Israel finally reaching a ceasefire armistice with Egypt on February 24, 1949, Lebanon on March 23, 1949, Jordan on April 3, 1949, and Syria on July 20. 1949. The United Nations finalized the borders by combining the separate Armistice Agreements and melded all these items together and established the “Green Line” which still is used by many as if it has some meaning other than this is where the front lines were when the fighting ended in 1949. Upon the insistence of the numerous Arab powers and the Arab League the “Green Line” was to be denoted as an armistice line and was to never at any time to be construed as a border defining Israel or any other surrounding or bordering state as doing so would have been tantamount to recognizing Israel as an actual and recognizable state, a fact the Arab forces and governments were loath to allow by any means, thus technically the only boundaries which have ever define Israel as having a border are those of the San Remo Conference which defined the borders for the Jewish state as Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea, or if preferred, by the Churchill White Paper which defined the boundaries for Israel into perpetuity as the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with Lebanon and Syria to the north and Saudi Arabia and Egypt to the south. Following the end of the War to vanquish the nascent state of Israel and slaughter its Jews before they can even breathe the air for a single day, a war that raged for approximately two years if the skirmishes which began even before the November 29, 1947 vote of the United Nations General Assembly for the formation of the state of Israel was even taken, there is even more to the story to be told.

 

Egypt retained Gaza but never annexed it and recognized it as occupied land partially as they were uninterested in ruling over the area as they found it to pose more problems and caused them more difficulties than they felt it was worth as it had little to offer as far as economics was concerned. Jordan, on the other hand, held the areas of Judea and Samaria and was very interested in the good rich lands and the potentials it had so they not only annexed them but renamed it the “West Bank” so as to remove the reminder that these were ancient Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria, two names dating and referencing back to Torah as well as the Old Testament and also the New Testament. Jordan also realized what importance there was to the Jewish people that they did not possess the Old City and Temple Mount locations of the city of Jerusalem and that by denying the Jews even the right of access or visitation that they were causing the Jewish people grief and pain. For over seventeen years that Egypt held Gaza and Jordan held the “West Bank” there was absolutely no mention of using these lands, either separately or together, to form a Palestinian state or an Arab state by any name. Further, of the entire world only two nations recognized the annexation of the “West Bank” which were Great Britain and Pakistan; not even a single Arab state recognized the annexation, and only Pakistan amongst the over fifty Muslim majority nations ever recognized it. The fact was that both Gaza and Judea and Samaria were seen for what they were, occupied lands; and from whom were they occupied, Israel of course as per the San Remo Conference and the Churchill White Papers. This becomes important later, but first there is another interesting subject into which we should delve.

 

The interesting date we will want to cover is the day the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) with Yasser Arafat as its leader and beside him as his number two man was Mahmoud Abbas and this all occurred on May 28, 1964. Let us go so far as to quote the Palestine Facts web site at“http://www.palestinefacts.org/” at their page which tells us all about their original designs where they claim, “Since Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) including East Jerusalem, and Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip at the time the PLO was founded, the PLO was committed to the dissolution of Israel, mainly through the use of armed force.” So, the PLO was originally founded under the premise their mission was to destroy Israel and take over all of Israel for at least the three years before the Six Day War in June of 1967 when after Egypt had set a naval blockade preventing Israeli use of the Straits of Tiran, cutting off the Israeli southern port of Eilat from exiting the Red Sea and accessing Asia and Africa which was defined, after Gamal Abdel Nasser had included closing the Straits of Tiran along with the Suez Canal during the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis as a casus belli for war, and massing troops on the Sinai-Negev border and Syria had massed troops along the Golan Heights bordering Israel and Nasser was broadcasting day and night on television and radio in both Syria and Egypt, two nations temporarily unified as the United Arab Republic (UAR) that the Israelis reacted to the acts of war and initially engaged Egypt and then Syria when Syrian troops swept down off the Golan Heights. Soon thereafter Jordan stated their intent to attack Israel quoting reports from Egypt and Syria claiming their great victories and how their forces were approaching Tel Aviv and would soon meet and finish off the rest of Israel after taking Tel Aviv. Israel warned and pleaded with Jordan not to believe the Egyptian and Syrian propaganda and that they were all lies and actually Israel was winning on both fronts. Jordan took the Israeli pleading as a sign of weakness and proof of Israeli defeat and Jordan declared war. As history reports, at the end of the June 1967 Six Day War Israel controlled the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula and had liberated Gaza from Egypt and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) from Jordan. It was three years and a month after the founding of the PLO (there have been reports that the PLO was originally hatched months before during a KGB meeting somewhere in Moscow where the KGB drafted a known operative whom they could control, Yasser Arafat, to head the operation and the KGB also approved of Mahmoud Abbas and several other Arab operatives they trusted to assist in the planning and other duties and the KGB funded much of the PLO operations and gave them provisions) that Israel gained possession of Judea and Samaria which they technically liberated as they initially belonged to Israel before she lost them in the 1948-1949 War of Independence which was really a war initiated by the Arab League with the intention of totally destroying the new Jewish entity, later to be referred to as the Zionist entity by the enemies of Israel. After the Six Day War the PLO did not change their Charter and their mission remained the total destruction of Israel.

 

Move forward many hundreds of terror attacks later and after the end of the First Intifada to Monday September 13, 1993, to the White House lawn and there with President William Jefferson Clinton and his ever-present wide smile we find PLO chief terrorist Yasser Arafat and Israeli President Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin meeting, shaking hands and both signing the Oslo Accords which recognized the PLO being transformed into the Palestinian Authority and the PLO was to amend their charter to remove the stipulation for the destruction of Israel and replacing it with verbiage recognizing the right of Israel to exist as the state for the Jewish People. Well, guess that little amending part and rewriting the charter such that destruction of became recognition of Israel and further, Israel as the home for the Jewish People never came to fruition which means that the Oslo Accords never were officially enacted. There was one meeting a few years later attended by an American team where the Palestinian legislature assigned a team to investigate the means by which the charter might be amended to meet the requirements of the Oslo Accords thus making them active which satisfied the Americans that the charter would finally be amended. Wrong again as the PLO charter, which acts as the charter for the Palestinian Authority, never did get amended and that committee never met either. But what if Oslo Accords were actually initiated as everybody believes such that it may as well have been honestly enacted as does it matter now as it took on a life of its own. That, too depends on how much of a stickler for the facts one chooses to be, and when it comes to International Law and international treaties come into play.

 

But let’s humor the concept that the Oslo Accords were validated; what did they actually set up? The Oslo Accords separated Judea and Samaria into thee sectors, Area A, Area B and Area C. The entirety of Oslo recognized that Israel had actually met every demand and stipulation of the United Nations resolutions after the Six Day War and even went further after the end of the Yom Kippur War of 1973 where Israel after the fighting ended had to pull back from their front line which was well on its way to taking Damascus holding position half the way there from the Golan Heights but Israel withdrew back to the Golan Heights, the front lines at the end of the 1967 Six Day War that Israel held and against Egypt Israel had crossed the Suez Canal and was approaching the Nile River at the furthest points of their front lines but after the fighting ceased Israel heeded the demands from the United States, Russia and many European nations and others retreating back across the Suez Canal and forfeiting any control over the Suez Canal despite holding the entirety of the western bank of the canal. When Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt Israel had returned lands retaining those lands deemed necessary for Israeli defense to be secure. Many nations in the 1970s believed and supported the idea that for Israel to be secure within her borders that this meant Israel retaining all of Judea and Samaria, but things change. The three areas the lands were divided into were denoted as per how it was viewed they would end up being divided after negotiations were completed, which was to take all of three years. Area A was placed under complete security and governmental control of the Palestinian Authority. This placed Yasser Arafat as the ruling person over Area A where there would presumably be elections regularly to choose the leadership over the areas under Palestinian governance. Area B was under Palestinian governance and joint security with both Palestinian and Israeli security being shared and with mutual assistance. Area C which included all of East Jerusalem was under Israel governance and security control with no control of any sort granted the Palestinian Arabs, this area was presumed to become an integral part of Israel, period. What this means is that Israel is free to settle anywhere they please in Area C of Judea and Samaria which includes East Jerusalem. It is only the fact that near the beginning of his first term as President of the United States that President Obama spoke clearly and intentionally, it is our opinion that there was no mistake made or that President Obama was not fully versed and cognizant of the ramification of what he said, he was clear and precise with his choice of words and meant every syllable as he stated, “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” This changed the entire outlook overnight and it took Mahmoud Abbas no time before he called for meetings with his top officials, signaled his willingness to start negotiation immediately with President Obama’s expectation of borders being the 1967 lines finally setting a standard which Abbas could support and Abbas soon afterwards made a trip throughout Europe meeting with heads of state and other ranking politicians talking about the need to press Israel to accept the reality that they were obligated to return all of the lands they had been occupying, that despite the reality that any lands granted to the Palestinians would become occupied Israeli lands that the Palestinians were squatting upon.

 

That leads us to the most recent of events, the proof beyond question that the European Union in concert with a number of European nations have been financing Arab purchases of lands in many parts of Area C as well as within East Jerusalem. These purchases are illegal under the precise definitions of rights under the Oslo Accords. The European and their Arab accomplices are the ones who are breaking International Law and the Oslo Accords by these scurrilous and clandestine purchases of lands to give to Arabs to manufacture new realities on the ground by acting to finance colonialization of Area C. European Union and European governments engaging in these purchases can and should be charged with crimes against the sovereign state of Israel just as the European Union and European governments who have threatened to sue Israel for illegal land use and colonization of lands not belonging to them by treaty despite their inability to name what treaty of agreement the Israelis were in contravention of by building or taking up residence after purchasing lands, properties or homes and apartments in East Jerusalem and Area C according to Israel’s rights spelled out in Oslo Accords. If the Europeans would desire that the Oslo Accords be discarded as they are no longer viable, then I guess we need to ask the Europeans which agreement they desire to revert to, the San Remo Conference or the Churchill White Paper as Oslo appears to have been abrogated despite the fact that the Palestinian Authority and the PLO both still have refused to amend their charter thus the Europeans are correct in claiming that Oslo has died. It matters little where the world stands on these matters as by any means their buying lands for Arabs in Area C and East Jerusalem is as illegal as acts can be and it is our bet that they are aware of their pretense, duplicity, deceit, faithlessness, chicanery and outright quackery. But what can one expect from a continent which just over seventy years ago was fully complicit in the nefariousness of the Final Solution by which the physically handicapped, mentally challenged, the insane, the Roma, the Serbians, the Jews and all others who did not meet, cooperate, support or obey the Nazis rules and demands or those who had a crisis of conscience were annihilated with factory like precision and the speed and efficiency of a production line. A continent that just over seventy years ago slaughtered without conscience over twelve millions of their own and the nations they conquered innocent civilians of which one in two was a Jew who did no more than worship G0d differently than was expected under the iron fisted Nazi rule. The same continent which has witnessed many hundreds of a percent of anti-Semitism within its society from one end to the other over the past two to three years and can fully expect this trending to continue into the future where one way or the other there will finally be no Jews left in Europe and Hitler and his close advisors and friends’ dream which was thought out and dressed up with a nice bow wrapped around the parchment which carried its fateful and depraved decree down from atop the Wannsee Conference. Perhaps they have not heard that the Jews promised “Never Again” and we meant that. That is the reason that Israel is so vital and the Europeans are fully aware of this fact and that is what is truly behind their condemnations of Israel and their insistence on its defeat even if it must be by stages just as Yasser Arafat put into motion as he too realized that the Jews will fight this time.
