You know another sacrifice is demanded when Israel must prove that the Jews want a peace agreement by sacrificing for the cause when former President Carter comes visiting and meets with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority separately while refusing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister presumably because Netanyahu does not desire to make peace or else he would be willing to sacrifice for peace. As is the usual ritual before demanding that Israel make sacrifices for peace, there have been no demands for Mahmoud Abbas or Hamas in Gaza to make even the slightest sacrifice for peace. We are constantly reminded that Mahmoud Abbas is in too weak a position to make any sacrifices for peace and that this too is Israel’s fault. It is up to Israel to make sacrifices for peace and also meet some, not necessarily all at once, but to meet some and eventually every wish list demand made by Abbas so as to strengthen his position so he will be able to make peace. This begs the question of why we have to do anything to strengthen Mahmoud Abbas so he can make peace and why are we dealing with somebody who is unable to make peace without being constantly propped up by our sacrifices. Perhaps the Palestinians should hold those elections which have been on hold basically since 2006 and allow the Arabs to choose a leader who will be capable of making peace.

 

Of course the reason that the Arabs have had no election and nobody anywhere seems to care that they refuse to hold new elections as they know that Abbas would be out of power immediately after the votes were counted unless massive fraud were to take place. The reason the Arabs are never required to even make a list of exactly what it would take to have peace and an end to the threatened hostilities towards Israel by the Arab terror leaders is it is known that they would be unable of making up a list which would permit for any existence of Israel. If Hamas were to draw up such a resolution it would also include a world without Jews. Abbas would merely want Israel replaced by an Arab state. As far as the Arabs making a sacrifice for peace, Abbas has said that were he to make even the slightest concession to Israel that he would be thrown from office. Does not this point to the problem which stands in the way of peace, that Abbas is a maximalist who will only accept the death of Israel as the only peace result. You want proof, simply have Abbas draw up exactly what compromise he would be willing to accept and which items he would be willing to forgo for a real and permanent peace and it will become apparent that there is no room for compromise in the Arab position. There never has been the slightest room for compromise and never will be any room for compromise. Abbas does not desire peace; he desires complete and total victory. Abbas is still fighting the war and believes he will win as his allies in the West are so foolish and are backing his position without ever inquiring what that position might be.

 

The reason behind there never having been a demand for the Arab leadership to draw up any listing of their demands for peace is because there is no need; the Arabs make their demands readily obvious to even the most casual observer if only they would open their ears, eyes, and most of all, minds. They go so far as to brazenly chant their demands on college campuses when they hold their hate Israel and the Jews rallies where Netanyahu is burned in effigy and the chants include some real gems. Perhaps a list of my top couple of their chants which can be heard on many college campuses during their anti-Israel week rallies reveals the underlying hatreds such as “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free;” and “Death to Israel, Death to America;” and any number of references to the Holocaust with this little gem creeping its way up the favorites list on campuses everywhere, “Jews to the Gas.” The anti-Israel, anti-Zionist leaders and the masses of useful idiots who are following their lead have finally gotten to the point where they are so comfortable that they no longer are required to hide their true roots in anti-Semitism, yes, you heard that correctly, they have dropped all pretense and are now chanting straight and unadulterated anti-Semitic tropes. But of course you knew their roots all along as it is also the roots behind the European hatred, their libelous and vicious spites and hatreds of Israel. There is more vitriol backing the rage seen expressed in a single anti-Israel rally demanding an end to the Israeli occupation of their own legally recognized and treaty backed Israeli lands than in all the rallies against the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the Turkish occupation of northern Cyprus or virtually any other demonstrations against any other grievance one could name. And why is this? Simple, because it has the force of the thousands of years of Jew hatred fueling it. This is why the demands are always made of Israel to sacrifice just as the Jews have always been put upon to sacrifice, the Jewish nation is now the largest of all things Jewish. Further, it just sticks in the craw of every anti-Semite that there exists a place where Jews defend themselves and do so quite successfully. The real driving force of the so-called ‘Peace Process’ is to bit by bit tear apart the Jewish state and force the Jews back into their position as beggars always subject to the whims of those who hold power over them. Israel is the Jew amongst the nations and is treated as if it were a single Jews who has had the audacity to say ‘No!’ to its assumed masters.

 

That is what is choking the world on its hate, the words ‘Never Again!’ are now a real force with the will of the Jewish People which after a near two-thousand-year banishment in the wilderness have finally started making their way home and in that home having an ability to protect the Jews from all assailants. There is a wellspring of Zionist and Jewish power opening in the Middle East right where it was written of and predicted by Torah, the Bible, Talmudic texts and virtually every Jew’s heart and the realization of the Jews once again becoming an equal amongst the nations exists and awaits them nestled at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. The Jewish state has been made to reappear exactly as it was stated throughout the Bible, the Old Testament where predictions stated that Israel, the Jewish State, would return in a day brought forth into the world of nations. The Jewish State would simply appear in a day never to be vanquished again and the Israelis believe this promise will be kept if only by the will of the eternal people, as the Jews were referred to by Mark Twain. And the Israelis actually have a few simple demands we wish to have recognized, but even if not, we will defend them just the same. One is we will not return to the Diaspora, another is we will keep that which is ours between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and most important of all, Jerusalem is our spiritual heart and eternal capital city, all of Jerusalem undivided and blessedly ours. Governments may make moves to destroy the parts that the Jews claim, but Israel will not be the sacrificial lamb on the altar of peace and in the end we will have our peace on our small piece of land, and the world will be content with that at long last.

An Answer to Israel’s Detractors

 

Israel received some interesting detractions which broke new grounds for originality and contrariety. The leadership of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement entered new, though not so surprising, grounds by condemning the Israeli relief efforts providing medical, search and rescue as well as other aid to Nepal and the victims of the disastrous earthquake. Allying with these efforts was Kenneth Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch, Tweeted the following diatribe, “Easier to address a far-away humanitarian disaster than the nearby one of Israel’s making in Gaza. End the blockade!” Not to be outdone, Max Blumenthal, a Jewish anti-Semite who has risen to prominence in the BDS campaign took to Twitter with this disgusting gem, “For a country responsible for so many man-made catastrophes, natural disasters can’t come often enough.” Meanwhile, the editor of Electronic Intifada, Ali Abumiah added to the Twitter insult-fest with his two cents worth of, “Propaganda operation goes into high gear to exploit Nepal earthquake to improve Israel’s blood-soaked image.” These pitiful reprobations of the Israeli efforts in Nepal and the assigning to them such a sinister convolution of the intent of Israel’s reputation for being amongst the first to arrive to provide aid and the last to leave as they follow up long after the news crews and their cameras have gone is beyond sickening.

 

Still, there is a ray of hope that such statements and the hatreds they reveal which are as evil as the accusations are beyond the pale, or should we have said beyond the cusp, is that there is no actions, no matter how noble in spirit or kind, which will not be twisted into some unrecognizable convolution reeking with evil intent and desperate hate proving once again that the only action acceptable to these entities which Israel could perform would be a complete surrender to the powers who wish her annihilation and baring the necks of her people to the blades of their knives. There is no middle ground sought by those who are out for Israeli blood and the worst of these are those Jews and especially Israeli Jews whose self-hate is so deeply rooted that their souls have been darkened and their twisted views of reality are beyond any moderation and they are as far gone as their lies themselves. Even writing about such slanders is so distressing that there are times the fingers hang over the keyboard unable to return to striking the keys as if the entire system of thought to words to keystrokes has missed a gear and vapor-locked the connection from brain to fingers. There is little that can be done to reason with such hatreds as they know no reason beyond their desires for the destruction of Israel. When providing aid to the victims of such a horrific catastrophe such as the earthquake which struck Nepal becomes a subject for defamation and contempt, the discussion has gone beyond reason and entered the realm of the absurd.

 

Despite the extremes these hatreds have driven those who make such absurd commentary reaching such disgusting depths as to turn acts of kindness and complete altruism into nothing more than banal contrivances meant to whitewash a sullied image, especially coming from the besmirchers themselves, is simply exhaustive on the emotions to the extreme driving even the saintly to the cusp of evil inferences. Fortunately some of us are not beyond such assaults though to stoop to such a level only serves to give credence to the lies, insults and defamations with which Israel has been inundated. The truism we were taught growing up was to simply ignore those who throw insult through invective and lie as the evilness behind such attacks will soon enough be revealed and they will have gained only bringing the insult upon themselves, well, I’m waiting. Apparently our mothers likely knew that such was not true when applied to the Jewish people or now their nation, the only piece of lands they ever desired. The claims we hear about how Israel dispossessed the Palestinian Arabs from their homeland is such a contrivance, and obvious at that, the fact it has been adopted now by so many who it is known know the reality and are simply feeding the lie with layer upon layer of lies. Many of Israel’s foremost friends and allies took their lead from the leadership of Israel and the Jewish societies in the Diaspora and let the liars lie refusing to dirty themselves in a battle of mudslinging. We were told how such slanders would crumble from the preposterousness of their lies. They did not so crumble and instead continued to grow as the anthill became a molehill became a foothill and have now grown to the point of having a life of their own piling heap upon heap of vile recrimination which has climbed so far beyond the cusp as to stretch credulity. The problem is there are so many who desperately want to believe and that begs the question; why is it they desire to believe hatreds against Israel without proof that they would demand piles of proof were the same accusations leveled against any other nation?

 

The reality and answer lies with one of, if not the, oldest of hatreds known to mankind, anti-Semitism. The truth actually lays in something very fundamental, politics. We all remember when Israel was the darling of the left and supported by much of the Western World. That all changed somewhere between 1967, June to be exact, and 1973, around mid-October. Before June of 1967 Israel was the little nations which miraculously survived what was obviously unimaginable odds in 1948 and 1949 in what was euphemistically referred to as the Israeli War of Independence. The claim was that name gave Israel an actual beginning like most nations have at their origins, a war to free themselves from their colonizing force. That was not the actual case for Israel as the colonizing force were the British who could not vacate fast enough knowing what was about to be unleashed. Part of the British desire to leave may have had something to do with their efforts in attempting to make the Jews as helpless of victims through disarming them and giving the confiscated arms to their Arab neighbors plus the writing on the borders where the Arab armies had been massing for the final two months of the British Mandate requirements. Israeli victory was and still is seen as nothing short of a miracle, and I am not about to argue. As Israel settled down and got to being a nation, her earliest days were as an agricultural economy which favored a socialist system of governance as well as structure in the Kibbutzim. This gained her the reputation of a socialist paradise with great strides in bringing the deserts and swamps to fields of produce and flowers. Everything was considered idyllic, whether it was or not. The combined armies under Gamal Abdel Nasser who ruled the United Arab Republic (UAR), which was the manner in which the combined nations of Egypt and Syria, massed troops on Israel’s northern and southern borders once again posed an unimaginable force against Israel, who was still viewed as not being much of a military power, but Israel herself had taken numerous steps to fortify the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and had some impressive leadership commanding the IDF. Once the war had begun, even despite the entrance of Jordan to the fray on the second day, the entirety of the war lasted six days. There is no telling how much farther the war might have lasted had the United States, France, Britain, Soviet Union and virtually the entire United Nations not demanded Israel cease hostilities otherwise, well, there was no actual threat, just an insistence that Israel not cross the Jordan River, Suez Canal, and retreat back to the Golan Heights from partly on the road to Damascus. Israel gladly complied with the request as doing so would assure she took no additional casualties, a major consideration in every such use of force. The Six Day War, as it became known, was the proof that little Israel had grown up and was a formidable military presence in the Middle East, a concern that did not escape the notice of United States President Lyndon Johnson.

 

With the realization of military capabilities of Israel after the Six Day War the Western powers realized they likely had little direct control over Israel and that Israel was becoming an equal partner and not so much an underpowered nation requiring Western assistance to survive. This became extremely evident when it became known that Israel was developing a jet fighter which would have capabilities equivalent to the United States F-16 which was also just entering preproduction. This information was cause for alarm at the Pentagon as the cost for the F-16 and F-15 was to be deferred through foreign sales which depended largely on these aircraft not having competition other than from the Soviet Union which was unavoidable as the United States would not be selling military hardware to the Warsaw Nations or other nations under communist influence. Israel had to be bought off and thus the United States made an agreement with the Israelis that if the Israelis would take a sweetheart of a deal on a package of F-15s and F-16s and end their research and development of aircraft, then the United States would provide Israel with front-line aircraft and guarantee them air superiority into the future. Along with these guarantees it was also implied that the United States would continue, or begin, to provide Israel with cover at the growingly aggressive United Nations, particularly in the Security Council. In what may prove to be the second biggest mistake in Israeli history, they accepted this deal. If this acceptance of assistance from the United States ever proves to have played a crucial part in the development and the signing of the Oslo Accords with the United States having worked behind the scene with Simon Peres and the other Israelis which were trusted to keep their deliberation completely secret, proof that Simon Peres can keep his mouth shut, then this deal vaults into the number one slot because of the ramifications. Between these items and the eventual hard won victory of the Yom Kippur War in 1973 that the world was forced to take a second look at Israel and the glossy shine of that plucky little country forever changed to that borderline world power of the Middle East. Add to that the progression from an almost purely agricultural economy into the start-up nation which leads the world in agricultural technology, security software, personal messaging software, cellphone technology, military hardware and software, and numerous other technological expertise has added the dimension to the Israeli persona of a capable leader in modern technology which has also engendered jealousy. It has been this jealousy which has many willing to believe anything which proves that Israel has attained her level of accomplishment through means other than honestly.

 

Israeli accomplishment has become the new target for hatred which the Jews have suffered through all their existence simply because they often were willing to put in the time and sought the education beyond that of the majority of their peers within human civilization. Israel hatred is the millennial anti-Semitism, plain and simple. This is why there is no answer to why there exists so much venomous hatred targeting Israel expressed in the most vile and vulgar terminology. One cannot find an answer to unvarnished hatreds; one can only make the price of such hatred sufficiently high that it dare not raise its head. Unfortunately, or more likely fortunately, we no longer exist in the type of world during which King David lived where if your neighbor threatened your people or began spewing hatreds and threats you girded your lions, gathered your sward and shield and went to war and may the best side win. As far as the Jews are concerned, the best side did not always win right off, but eventually the Jews outlasted their adversaries. Such a victory today is looking more and more dire every day, but as anybody living in Israel with their eyes open knows, miracles happen every single day and around virtually every corner. Could we use more miracles? Everybody can use more miracles, but you take what the good L0rd provides and are thankful. The greatest miracle of recent memory came during the operation in Gaza last summer called Operation Protective Edge. We reported back on September 26, 2014, in our article titled How to Fight Terrorist Fanatics Unless You’re Israel, how the otherwise near perfect Iron Dome battery fired three times upon a missile out of Gaza whose calculated trajectory placed it in central Tel Aviv hitting either the main train and bus depots or one of the towers which make up the Tel Aviv skyline and missed all three times. I know, that is a disaster, not a miracle, but wait, are not most miracles that which turns an otherwise catastrophic situation into something which has the heart to leap out and scream, “There is a G0d!” This was no different as at the last instant a wind rose from the east and pushed the missile out into the Mediterranean Sea. What makes this even more of a miracle is that missiles are designed to be resistant to the effects of bursts of wind and it would take such a blast of air that the wind itself would have caused massive damage in Tel Aviv. This was no ordinary wind; this was the hand of G0d.

 

Perhaps such miracles as that is also part of the reason for the curses. It was reported that when a Hamas commander was pressed about the less than exemplary success of his units rocket batteries he replied that, “Even when they are on target their G0d shoves them away.” If this is amongst the reasons the Israel is to face the scorns of so many, then allow me to bare their scorn with pleasure, pride and faith that the L0rd is with Israel.

When it comes to the subject of Israel both United States and United Nations are first class Hypocrites. Let us start with the United Nations where Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in a written complaint to the Security Council stating, “I deplore the fact that at least forty-four Palestinians were killed as a result of Israeli actions and at least two-hundred-twenty-seven injured at United Nations premises being used as emergency shelters.” There were a few rather significant details which were probably missed in this one-sided complaint such as the fact that rockets were fired from locations adjacent to or on top of UNRWA facilities or that during Operation Protective Edge three separate schools were found to have caches of rockets that the UNRWA staff allowed Hamas or Islamic Jihad to remove them instead of having them destroyed or turned over to neutral observers in order to allow for them to be removed from storage under the inspection and safe passage added by UNRWA personnel observing such removals. Such actions as permitting the storage of these weapons and then granting their removal to the hostile force which had stored them illegally in these UNRWA schools made UNRWA complicit in this criminal use of their facilities. The fact that one UNRWA health clinic was itself simply nothing more than a trap set with eighty kilograms of explosives which were built into the walls and otherwise it having served as a tunnel entrance was yet another piece of damning evidence of UNRWA complicity. Beneath the clinic were found intersecting tunnels accessible from within but the real criminal act was the detonation of those explosives set into the clinic’s walls during its construction, a construction dome under United Nations supervision where UNRWA provided their trusted employees to oversee the construction who also permitted the instillation of explosives knowing the intent was to kill Israelis in any conflict where they could be drawn to enter the clinic. This was done during Operation Protective Edge when very likely combatants were observed entering the clinic implying tunnel access or other related activity within the clinic. Upon IDF troops entry of the clinic to investigate the explosives were detonated murdering in an UNRWA complicit ambush in conjunction with Hamas of three IDF soldiers; Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion, hy”d; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion, hy”d; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy”d.

 

In related information omitted from the Secretary General’s letter of condemnation was that the deaths of over a dozen innocent Arab residents of Gaza who were being shielded in the United Nations built Shifa Hospital which everyone were so quick to place the blame on Israel proved to have been a misfired Hamas Fajr-5 Iranian-made 100 kg warhead missile which was targeted at Israel which caused the destruction, but that little fact was not considered important to note as the Shifa Hospital is also run by UNRWA. Of course the United States refused to be left out of this story as well as both the United States and the United Nations during the course of the Israeli operation it was Israel that was criticized by both the United Nations and the United States for attacking UNRWA facilities. After Israeli returned fire using data from targeting given by counter artillery/rocket/missile radar system to provide targeting resolution of the launch sites, which resulted in these schools being within the blast radius of the return fire of targeting of Israeli civilians by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the same expectations of the United Nations and the United States Department of State in condemning Israel for targeting UNRWA schools when in fact Israel was targeting active launch sites which were aimed specifically at Israeli civilian targets. See picture below which illustrates the Radar Trajectory of the barrage launched from within Gaza by either Hamas or Islamic Jihad or other allied with them depicting the strike points for four rockets, including the short round strike on the Shifa Hospital which Israel was blamed by Hamas and Media accepted Hamas talking point unchecked, one falling in the Mediterranean Sea, another short round striking the Shati Refugee Camp and lastly, one running true targeting Ashkelon which was intercepted by the IDF Iron Dome system.

Speaking for the United States Department of State, Jennifer Psaki stated, “The United States is appalled by today’s disgraceful shelling outside an UNRWA school in Rafah sheltering some three-thousand displaced persons, in which at least ten more Palestinian civilians were tragically killed. We once again stress that Israel must do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.” According to Agency France Press (AFP), an IDF spokesperson confirmed it had fired on a target “in the vicinity” of the school. Additionally, the IDF pressed the importance this is being given and the review is ongoing stating, “The IDF targeted three PIJ (Islamic Jihad) terrorists on board a motorcycle in the vicinity of an UNRWA school in Raffia. The IDF is reviewing the consequences of this strike.” According to Ms. Psaki, “The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians. We call for a full and prompt investigation of this incident as well as the recent shelling of other UNRWA schools.” So as not to allow the United Nations be left out and the United States have all the apparent glee in condemning Israel for defending her citizen and valuing their safety primarily while conducting on a war footing, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, “This madness must stop.” He also demanded that these actions by Israel constitute “yet another gross violation of international humanitarian law.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon continued his assault on Israel demanding, “This attack, along with other breaches of international law, must be swiftly investigated and those responsible held accountable. It is a moral outrage and a criminal act.”

 

But now comes the United Nations report which looked into these seven attacks on United Nations schools in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, the same UNRWA schools in the above situation and every other single shell of artillery or other munitions utilized by Israel in their previously determined criminal act which must not be considered an act of self-defense but a blatant attack which has been established and assumed by this report. The report has been disclosed to Hamas, possibly searching for more damning information be it fabricated or potentially supported by supposition of Israeli intent outside self-defense despite evidence to the contrary. Hamas’s warm acceptance of the report is sufficiently telling and it being a United Nations report which relied heavily on UNRWA supplied information on these strikes. There is one question which will never be asked nor will it be answered or included in any reference to UNRWA provided information, namely, was the UNRWA official in any manner or form also a member of Hamas, Islamic Jihad or other related organization or group? I am aware that even thinking such might be relevant makes me unqualified to comment on anything compiled by the United Nations because I am obviously one of those Zionist stooges who actually believes that facts matter as do Jewish lives. Since these strikes were counter-radar-tracking electronic aiming which permits the placing of return fire to within a ten meter area centered on the launch site, a three round return of fire should neutralize that firing position, but if I have my information right, the IDF often uses a single round depending on a minimalist return strike in order to minimize damage to structures near to these launch sites which are almost always next to or on the roof of United Nations structures such as UNRWA schools (or dare I refer to them as rocket storage facilities), clinics (or dare I claim these are nothing but explosive rigged walls over tunnel access simply waiting for IDF soldiers to enter before being detonated), hospitals (or do we dare mention the Hamas command and control main facility sits in the basement of the largest hospital in Gaza technically making it a valid target yet it remains standing for some reason, potentially Israeli compassions and restraint?) and other such United Nations sites such as the soccer field which hid a number of underground rocket launching locations which flip open the roof, fire, close roof and return to looking like a soccer field.

 

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri stated, emphasis or translation added in parenthesis, “We call on the world to send the murderous occupation (Israel) leaders to international courts, and we call on the (Arab Palestinian) Authority to investigate this report and to persecute (persecute was actually the way it was presented from the source) the occupation (Israel) in international courts.” I guess the best way to end this report is with another United States threat and what we feel would be the best answer to the American hypocrisy. United States Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman demanded, referring to presumed next Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that she has chosen to have “raised questions about his commitment to the two-state solution.” Undersecretary of State Sherman expressed further misgivings about Benyamin Netanyahu’s changing positions on the formation of a Palestinian state during his time as head of the government. This caused her pause and great consternations which were deeply troubling. One might even feel pity for this woman who is so troubled by Israel but then she expressed such things as her claim that the State Department and Obama administration will be watching very closely to see what happens on this [Palestinian] issue after the new government is formed. Just as I thought that perhaps her concerns and expressing the willingness to wait and discern the position of the government after such was formed and then she has to go and state, “If the new Israeli government is seen to be stepping back from its commitment to a two-state solution that will make our job in the international arena much tougher… it will be harder for us to prevent internationalizing the conflict.”

 

The threat of not being able to prevent the internationalizing the conflict is so beyond troubling that it reaches well past damning as it is actually quite childish. The United States can simply state in the Security Council the same promise they tell their Jewish minions at the New York Times, namely that ‘the United States backs Israel in determining their own fate through direct negotiations and the United States will veto any resolution that unfairly targets solely Israel and is not balanced.’ Meanwhile, at a White House meet and greet the President spoke with the heads of Jewish organizations across the spectrum of Jewish organizations to assure them that all is well between Israel and the United States. The President also implied that there is a lot more concern in having the Jewish organizations be on board with the Iran deal should one be signed and presented to Congress and the President expressed wishes that they give the agreement a chance. This acute attention to the Iran nuclear weapons deal and the thinly veiled threats to throw Israel as red meat to the whims of the international attempts at forcing their idea of a solution on Israel while making no demands of the Arab Palestinian Authority leadership would be awarding Abbas and Hamas a recognized state with the maximalist borders pushing Israel back to the same starting gates which brought on only war and this time would only be different in that even should the Arab Palestinians shoot rockets onto the runways of Ben Gurion International Airport bringing all flights in and out of Israel basically to a standstill, and aim other rockets, larger rockets, at downtown Tel Aviv striking a number of the tallest skyscrapers and force three or four to collapse, would the world permit an assault to prevent further carnage or would Israel be locked from such actions.

 

It is understood that should the United Nations, in their furtive imaginations, force their idea of a solution that a number of factors would very soon thereafter come to fruition. The initial firing of a couple of thousand rockets, Grad and Katyusha short range rockets which do minimal damage but are still quite lethal, start fires and will destroy a small house or even apartment building killing numerous Israelis. The entirety of Israel made vulnerable to such rocket fire from the Judean Hills is beyond the capacity of just nine or even a dozen Iron Dome systems, it would require tens of such systems possibly even over a hundred to cover the entire region efficiently and effectively. Even so armed, there would be those which would get through and strike within the most densely populated areas in Israel. Just as the sparsity of population bordering Gaza near guarantees most unguided munitions will not hit anything vital nor would it kill anybody with minimal protections such as shelters, the area around Tel Aviv and overseen by the Judean Hills is as densely populated as the Gaza area was sparse, thus any rocket fired is likely to do harm and cause serious damage, the probabilities are diametrically opposites. After a week of such rocket fire Israel would have no choice but to strike into Judea and Samaria and destroy whatever rockets and rocket supplies and machines for producing them. That would be but a temporary fix and Israel would be brought before the General Assembly, perhaps the Security Council, and be reprimanded for their invasion of a United Nations member state and not simply bringing the problem to the attention of the United Nations and allow them to get right on it in a couple of months after it had been completely validated that Israel has actually been attacked by the actual forces of the Arab state of Palestine or had it been terrorists for which Palestine must not be burdened with responsibility of preventing every terror attack and it will be determined they are doing everything that can be expected from them. Eventually the United Nations will respond to the Arab state of Palestine requesting international peacekeepers be placed on their border with Israel to protect the innocent Arabs from those horrific warmongering Israelis (Jews). The international peacekeepers will serve their purpose of preventing Israel incursions into the Arab nation of Palestine but will also be true to their mission statement which will not instruct them to intercede or interdict with the firing of rockets, missiles, artillery or other projectiles from within that Arab state onto Israelis and their properties. Eventually Israel will be faced with the choice of no longer existing as a nation or to retake all of Judea and Samaria and forcing every known terrorist or operative, officer, representative or anybody inferred to have any connection to terrorism or the launching of projectiles into Israel completely out of Judea and Samaria annexing every inch of the lands by right of international law implementing the San Remo Conference and its results and the United Nations guarantees of enforcing the terms of the Mandates set up by that treaty which was enacted with the unanimous agreement of the member states of the League of Nations and the United States signed as well in a treaty with the British and confirmed by Article 80 in the United Nations Charter. The residents under the areas under Israeli rule have the guarantee to individual rights, property rights, religious rights but are not guaranteed political rights so such may be withheld and permitted as per the necessities as determined to be in the best interests of Israel. Such would likely mean that with time these Arabs would be granted either some form of autonomy or granted political rights within Israel. The granting of an Arab state without any Arab recognition of Israeli right to exist would be a disaster simply waiting to happen and such would be triggered by the first election of the forced takeover by Hamas. But why worry about the future, that has never seemed to be the concern of the United Nations in anything they have attempted from day two, we will grant them that ratifying their Charter may have been a step in the right direction, but that apparently went directly to their heads and they have never moved in a similar sensible direction since, so why start now.
