Beyond the Cusp

Our Feckless World

 

The escalation of the Islamic world’s war is against those who are insufficiently pure in their Islam practices and are not as obedient as desired or worse, not a worshipper of Allah and Muhammad and the true chain of the roots of Allah’s path from Abraham through Hagar, Sarah’s maidservant which she gave Abraham so he could produce an heir, a son. This son was Ishmael, who eventually fathered the progeny from Abraham and Hagar, presumably producing Muhammad, thus spawning Islam many centuries later. This new religion of Islam was supposed to be a furtherance of the Judeo-Christian lines and bring peace and one final message for humankind by which to live in peace and harmony, or at least that was how it presumably started. After being rebuffed, scorned and thrown out of Mecca, Muhammad went to Medina where the prophesy continued and changed its flavor and methods as Muhammad gained power rising to rule in Medina as a great warlord with a crushing force at his disposal. This force assisted his vengeance on Mecca for its treatment of Muhammad and the rest is history. The Quran took on a different tone which some have cast as “conquer the world for Allah.” A somewhat deeper explanation can be read starting with Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and followed up after that brief summary from a wealth of information added by numerous readers in the comments with links to other sites which range from commentaries on the Quran to different orderings of the Quran from traditional to chronological and more. Many of the worldly difficulties with the followers of the Medina Quranic verses which presumably, when differing from the Mecca verses, the later ones take precedence, has led to the Islamic State and groups like Hamas, Boko Haram and other terror enclaves in Afghanistan, the Philippines and beyond. What is often forgotten when discussing Islam is there are also a number of groups who live perfectly good Quranic lives giving what these other groups claim are abrogated sections of the Quran by the more aggressive, but these places remain open societies proving that there are peaceful ways and means which can be followed from the Quran and that it is all in how you implement the Quran and what you seek to gain from your experiences in Islam.

 

The Orlando nightclub slaughter, which is being portrayed in some circles as purely a hate-crime against the LGBT community, is being cast ignoring the Islamic roots of the shooter or actually intimating that he was a member of the Christian right and a fanatic and gun nut even more for gun rights than the NRA and Donald Trump type of supporter. This approach eventually ties in the violence which has broken out at any number of Trump’s campaign rallies. The small fact that this violence was almost always instigated by leftist protesters, many of whom had leftist backings, has been left out from the picture so as to tarnish Trump as the one causing the violence. That is simply political expediency and the horrors of the nightclub shooting is not about the United States race for the White House and rather about the race to club America into obedience of the Quran and adopting Islam as America’s sole religion. The same can be said for June 13; the Philippines government confirmed that Robert Hall, a Canadian citizen, was beheaded by the ISIS-affiliated Abu Sayyaf terrorist group who held him hostage since September 2015. Canada’s prime minister’s Justin Trudeau’s reaction was posted on his Facebook page. “Canada holds the terrorist group who took him hostage fully responsible for this cold-blooded and senseless murder,” he said. Trudeau avoided mentioning the radical Islamic ideology espoused by Abu- Sayyaf, its affiliation with the Islamic State (a.k.a. IS, ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, Caliphate) and previously with al Qaeda. The same problem has continued half a world away with the brutality of Boko Haram which also strikes at those not of Islam across a wide area in central northern Africa centered on Nigeria. These groups have increased their ability to recruit others locally as well as from a distance after their swearing allegiance to the Islamic State and their leader, the self-proclaimed Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The world view of Baghdadi appeals to these frustrated youths who are frustrated with their lives and see the world as imperfect and in need of cleansing. These so-called ‘Lone Wolves’ like the Orlando terrorist and the San Bernardino killer couple and the others throughout the Western World as well as within the Islamic World all believe they are following a true vision. The same vision goes for many of the terror groups which have spawned as a result or have joined with the Islamic State. All of these otherwise disparate groups desire to reach a standing in what they believe is the future of the world as the Western World is unworthy of continuing as the main power in the world. If it was not the Islamic State it would be whatever group is strongest and claims leadership over all Islam and the tip of the spear which will pierce the world for Allah. Meanwhile the Western World remains asleep and leaderless in this fight. President Obama has been approached through the United Nations to call for a concerted effort from the Security Council thus coordinating the fight against the Islamic State. Defeating the Islamic State will require a unified world effort as smashing it into a million pieces will simply produce a million emissaries to spread the hatreds of the Islamic State making it even more dangerous. What needs to be done is to destroy the Islamic State in one well-coordinated assault on its main bodies in Syria and Iraq not allowing for their forces to escape out into the world spreading this incarnation of evil even further.

 

The problem with getting such a unified effort blessed by the United Nations has long been President Obama’s insistence on the only way the United States could fully join the fight. President Obama has demanded that the United States work through the Security Council as well as the General Assembly before committing ground troops. This precondition has been repeatedly stated and the lack of a United Nations Security Council resolution requiring force be used and taken against the Islamic State is the one request which would allow for a coalition to be formed to fight the Islamic State directly. The strangest piece to this puzzle has been President Obama himself as the United States has blocked any cooperation in drawing such a resolution. This obstruction apparently centers around the fact that the resolution was drafted by Russia and does not give President Obama the lead position in the coalition. Actually it appears that President Obama is blocking any action being coordinated from the Security Council as the combined forces of the world would then be turned loose to obliterate the Islamic State in place not allowing it to disperse. A crushing defeat would take off the gleam currently perceived to be emanating from the Islamic State and Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi personally making him a figure that the other groups can utilize.

 

No one other than President Obama can claim to know what is going on in his head that he blocks the exact measures he claims he requires in order to fight the Islamic State and eradicate it in quick order. Perhaps it is because he would not be perceived as the sole leader who freed the world from this monster and the acts of depravity committed in his name. Perhaps he sees the Islamic State as a system through which the majority of the Islamic world can be rallied and actually start the next Islamic war on the rest of the world. Perhaps President Obama wants to leave all options on the table so if he is not instated as the next head of the United Nations he can aspire then to lead the Islamic State and become Caliph of the World. It is just odd that President Obama become the obstruction preventing the Security Council from passing the necessary resolutions to bring a singular united World to bear and that he claimed were necessary for the United States to step forth into the breach, so to speak.

 

Meanwhile the main forces actually striking at the Islamic State are halfhearted bombing by the United States and slightly more vigorous bombings by the Russians. Neither side appears to have their heart in fighting the Islamic State. Probably the one thing preventing President Obama from allowing the Security Council to step forward and take charge in demanding actions be taken against the Islamic State is he knows it would take far more effort and a huge American commitment in manpower and treasure to wage such a war. President Obama probably does not wish to entangle the rest of his administrative efforts into defeating the Islamic State as it would be messy and soldiers would unfortunately be killed and fighting the Islamic State which can hide in plain sight as they do not exactly wear uniforms and would be far more able to hide within a compliant civilian surroundings without raising suspicions. Entangling the United States into such a war would result it as being his legacy and President Obama is not going to go down as the President which got us into a deadly and seemingly futile Middle East War. President Obama would rather place the emphasis on forcing or destroying Israel and replacing it with a failed Arab Palestinian State. It would not surprise us if President Obama doesn’t place some degree of faith in the claim that the Islamic State is an Israeli Mossad action done so as to empower Israel into controlling the actions of a large sector of the Islamic world. Nobody other than the President knows for sure what he believes and what is driving his current reticence towards empowering the United Nations to act.

 

Meanwhile, the rest of the world is not exactly beating a bombing run or even a surveillance pass against the Islamic State. With the recent assault on Paris, the lone wolf attacks traceable to the Islamic State, one would expect to see a concerted effort by the Europeans to have used the European Union to formulate their response, but nothing. A warning should be sounding throughout Europe as an ominous date approaches, the celebrations of the ancient Battle of Badhr which is remembered and commemorated in Islam on the 17th of Ramadan. This year it falls on Thursday, June 23rd, beginning Wednesday evening at sundown of this week. The one thing that Islam does even better than commit horrific acts is remembering anniversaries of its greatest victories or its worst humiliations which it tries to erase with glorious victories. The 1973 Arab-Israeli War (the Yom Kippur War) began on the 17th day of Ramadan. The Egyptians code-named their surprise attack on Israel as “Operation Badhr” occurring on the holiest day in Judaism, Yom Kippur. That war had an optimistic beginning and would have been an even greater challenge and likely disaster had the battle lines been the same as they were before the Six Day War and many an Arab commander from that war blamed the fact that the world had not already forced Israel back into its box. That is part of the drive to force Israel back to the 1949 Armistice lines, the pre-67 Lines, as then they feel Israel can be defeated more readily.

 

But other than it is fighting the Infidel and making War for Allah, there is a complete disconnect between Israel and their troubles with its existence and the Islamic struggle to conquer the world, which currently means ultimately the United States. Where you will see Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezballah all make attacks on the rest of the world; they mostly channel their efforts against Israel. Granted that Hezballah is currently being embroiled in protecting Bashir al-Assad, as he has no real troops to call his own, almost every Nasrallah speech is about the coming demise of Israel and his quarter of a million rockets all aimed at Israel from top to bottom in Eilat. He regularly insists on mentioning their ability to hit Eilat despite it not being a likely target but simply to make the claim he can now hit anywhere in Israel. On the other hand there have been no real efforts by al-Qaeda or Islamic State though both claim to have operatives embedded in Gaza or with the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria (West Bank). The only activity ever taken up by Islamic forces outside those directly fighting Israel is the occasional attempt to break the Gaza sea blockade with some heavily advertised flotilla which despite getting huge buildups online results in nothing in reality.

 

The Islamic world has far more pressing problems than Israel at the moment and does not appear capable of repairing the breaches in its states. Lebanon and Iraq are functional basket cases with Syria so completely devastated that it is no longer a nation and more of a roiling pot of troubles masquerading as a civil war which is simply filling up an otherwise empty space with no semblance of functioning governance. Libya is no different and is largely Syria but toned down because even less care is extended in that direction and Islamic State in Libya has yet to take on the evil dimensions as its spawning parent in Syria and Iraq. Talking about Iraq, the main functioning governance there is Iran. For all intents and purposes the world may as well recognize a nation of Kurdistan and draw its borders extending across northern Iraq and including northeastern Syria. By declaring the Kurds as having their own nation it would be a good first step towards repairing the damages perpetrated on the Arab world at the end of World War I. Sykes Picot Agreement divided up the Middle East to represent European oil interests and nothing more.

 

Yes a couple of promises were kept but far more were ignored or intentionally broken, and a Kurdish State must top that list as it can be easily rectified and would allow for more places for a base against the Islamic State. A declared Kurdistan would also be such a slap in the face to al-Baghdadi that much of the Islamic State efforts would be shifted to solely taking out this Kurdish State and making the Kurds into a nation would give them an even greater ideal around which to dedicate their Thusfar heroic efforts. Granted Turkey would initially disagree and be completely against such as Erdogan sees himself as the next ruler of Syria incorporating it into a greater Turkey and the initial step to reestablishing the Ottoman Empire. Should the borders of Kurdistan be drawn liberally along its southern regions to include Mosul and additional lands in Syria it would not be a bad idea as this would provide room for the Kurds residing in Turkey, who would rather live under Kurdish rule, to emigrate. That would also signal to the Arab and Muslim world that the Western World realized the injustice it imposed on them at the conclusion of world War I with the cutting of tribes into two or more pieces and shoved warring factions together in a single nation with the direct desire to cause the kind of chaos now occurring though at a lower level but preventing any string forces to develop in the oil rich regions and surrounding nations. The time to repair that would be now after the terror wars are brought to a close and then the West needs to work with the interests of the region and not against them. First though is the destruction of the Islamic State as that is an abomination to any possibility of a peaceable Middle East, even a peace amongst the Arabs with one another.

Israel, Judea, Samaria, and World Idiocy

 

For the unenlightened, that is not an insult, it simply means those who have yet to be informed, yes, we try to inform the untold, that is part of our mission statement. Now, where were we? Oh yea, Judea and Samaria are Jewish lands from the ages starting with King David and King Solomon and were originally an integral part of what was declared the State of Israel on the morning of May 15, 1948 under a declaration by the United Nations despite the objections of the nations of the Arab League and their allies. But that did not deter them from attempting to make a small adjustment to the United Nations declaration and simply genocidally vanquish the nascent state of Israel murdering every last person they found. To this end they gathered forces from seven Arab nations, an untold number of militias, various military officers from various armies from World War II who fought for European nations and the Mufti of Jerusalem demanded that Arabs take refuge beyond the Jordan River, in Lebanon or behind the Egyptian military aligned in Israel’s southern border. The Arabs who remained within Israel fell into two groups, the first was Arabs who truly desired to remain in Israel and live in peace and be a constructive element in Israel’s future, and those who were interested in attacking the Jews fighting to retain their nation from behind. The Israelis had a good idea who were the friendly Arabs and when those whose loyalties were in doubt proved by the action of a large numbers of their population to be a fifth element, that was when the Israelis out of necessity drove many of the questionable Arabs out before their troops after being ambushed a number of times by some of these communities striking from behind. This was behind the initial refugee crisis where those who left their homes were forced into camps as were those pressed out for Israel due to their allying with the invading Arab armies. Further, in the wars which began on May 15, 1948 and ended in an armistice in 1949 resulted in Israel losing parts of Judea and Samaria to Jordan and the Gaza to Egypt. Jordan attempted to annex their gained lands so they changed the name to West Bank and the world, except for Britain and Pakistan, refused to recognize the annexation. It was after the 1967 Six Day War that Israel liberated these very same lands but the deceit had already started with the 1964 founding of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) demanding that an Arab state replace all of Israel. That demand is no different today; it just is demanding it from within Israel instead of in an occupied area.

 

So, let us frame the actual demands as they stand with added notes about the world at large. Israel has reached peace accords with two of her former invaders after a series of wars which though initiated by Arab powers that they either were unable to eliminate Israel but wrested control over some Israeli lands in the process of attempting to eradicate Israel and her non-Muslim populations, as in the 1948-9 war or have lost any advantage gained by attacking without provocation and then having the occupied areas returned to Israel control and even losing additional lands as in 1967 and again in 1973. Israel returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula for a cold peace with often cooperation on security matters which are to both parties’ favor with Egypt. Egypt agreed, nay, insisted on Israel retaining her lands which Egypt had occupied between 1948 and 1967, the area known as Gaza. Jordan subsequently made her peace with Israel surrendering back to rightful Israeli control of the areas of Judea and Samaria as well as Eastern Jerusalem making, once again, the Jordan River the boundary between the two nations as it had been on that fateful morning of May 15, 1948 when Jordanian, Iraqi and Saudi Arabian forces stormed across the Israeli border racing to reach the sea and take control of the port cities. These invading forces were aided by Arab militias under orders from Mufti of Jerusalem Hajj Amin al-Husayni, the same Hajj Amin al-Husayni who spent the entirety of World War II in Nazi controlled lands raising all-Muslim forces which terrorized and plundered the areas Jewish and Serbian Christian populations with the blessings of the Nazis. Further, he was reputed with having advised at the Wannsee Conference where the ‘Final Solution’ was drafted and the Holocaust was placed in motion. Some reports claim that the Mufti demanded the Germans not simply exile the Jews onto the British Mandate lands in the Middle East thus taxing British and French forces in the area to take care of the refugees but instead exterminate European Jews and once in control of the Middle East and North Africa continue the extermination in those areas as well. These were the forces assailing the nascent state of Israel on her very first day of existence and before she had even gathered any formal military and where some Jews fought the invaders with stones having no arms other than slings. A swift Arab victory and the erasure of Israel appeared imminent but that was a short lived image of the situation.

 

Wannsee Conference Montage

 

Soon their efforts were blunted before they could reach their goals and finally fought to a standstill setting the Armistice Green Line as the new reality where Jordan remained in control until early June of 1967 when Jordan joined Egypt and Syria in the attack the Jordanians had been sold was going well by Egypt and Syria despite their losing on both fronts. That act despite Israeli warnings caused the loss of her occupied lands. On the Syrian front in 1967 Israel gained control of the Golan Heights, which the Syrians had used for snipers to randomly shoot Israelis walking to and from schools, tilling their lands, harvesting crops, driving on roads and other serious provocations known and the like. Israel had annexed the Golan Heights after gaining control of them from Syria during the Six Day War of June 1967. When considering the actions and the presence on occasions of terror groups aligned with al-Qaeda such as the al-Nusra and also forces attached to Islamic State with the occasional artillery or mortar round landing within the Israeli border to show for such volatile situations, Israel has adopted a policy of returning fire upon the offending source as computed by Iron Dome or similar tracking utilities. The Israeli decision to annex these vital hilltops has proven invaluable with the turmoil currently playing out on the border with Syria which is showing no sign of mitigation of the grievances and the introduction of Iranian, Russian and Hezballah forces backing Bashir al-Assad’s claim to the lands he ruled some five years ago when his intransigence on demands for rights and representative governance were refused and the largely peaceful protesters turned upon with regime forces which ignited this strife which has claimed upwards of five million lives with a large percentage being civilians and tens of millions of refugees made homeless who are now making their way across Turkey, Greece or even Italy and on into Europe. That pretty much encapsulates much of the actions over the past sixty-eight years.

 

So, the current situation is easily summed-up; Israel has made peace with three of the four nations bordering her and the fourth is in no shape currently to make any decisions about their mutual border. As discussed, Israel having annexed the Golan Heights is well within her rights according to all International Law as once Israel had returned any sections, let alone all; of the Sinai Peninsula she had fulfilled her obligations for returning lands, not all of the lands, nor the lands, nor any other absolute amount of lands. Israel was also to retain lands necessary for her continued security which was aimed at the time as the Golan Heights and the area of Judea and Samaria west of the Jordan River and many anticipated Israel retaining half of the Sinai Peninsula to the central mountains but Israel surrendered all of the Sinai. Once the peace treaties had been reached with Jordan and Egypt by which all the occupied Israeli lands of Gaza, Judea and Samaria had all claims vanquished it appeared that things in the Middle East between the Arabs and the Jews were settled. That was not to be the case as the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was formed in 1964, a full three years before the Six Day War of June of 1967, for the expressed purpose of threatening all of Israel with a challenge claiming the Arabs residing in Israel were actually an ancient culture which had their lands stolen by the Jews in the 1948-9 War and that the Israelis were evil, despicable European invaders and were intent on colonizing the entirety of the Middle East and beyond forming a greater Israel and subjugating the Arab Peoples, the indigenous Arab peoples with a nine-thousand year history going back to the time before. The Arab Palestinians, with generous assistance from the KGB, established these claims against all of Israel between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea except for the area under Arab controlled by Jordan and Egypt as these, Gaza, and parts of Judea and Samaria (referred to by Jordan as the West Bank) leaving the Jewish controlled areas as their target to form a new twenty-second Arab state. After Jordan and Egypt had relinquished their claims to any Israeli lands the PLO simply included those areas as their lost homelands which had to be returned to them completely cleansed of the Jews. They would claim that the Europeans must allow their Jews to return home ignoring the known fact that the entirety of the Arab and Muslim worlds attempted to cleanse themselves of their Jews and a vast number of them settled in Israel. There had been no mention of these Jews being returned or accepted as originating from the Arab lands all despite passports being held by these former refugees. There was a reason for the difference between the Arab refugees who are still languishing in refugee camps not included but rather kept separate from their brothers and sisters, all too often literally, while the Jewish refugees were taken in, given immediate citizenship and allowed full rights and became productive members of Israeli society. Their inclusion has been so complete that today it is difficult to tell children from the two groups of Jewish refugees apart as the great number of marriages across the societal lines, an occurrence nearly impossible in Arab society as there has been a stigma put upon the Arab refugees such that no Arab nation desires to include them into their society at large. This insane mistreatment goes so far that it even has led to a large refugee camp attached to Gaza City, an area controlled by Hamas since the 2007 coup, with the refugees camps surrounded with Concertina Wire with that being largely the only apparent difference as the refugees are housed in apartments almost identical to the apartments where the Gazans reside including many of the members of the Hamas ruling terror groups as well as other terror groups permitted to operate from within Gaza such as Islamic Jihad (they are almost co-rulers in the area), al Qaeda and even Islamic State. Hamas permits these terror entities to operate within the area it controls even to the point of permitting refugees to leave the camps in order to carry out terrorist acts against Israel. There are additional refugee camps near Ramallah in the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Mahmoud Abbas and again there is little to differentiate the refugee Arab Palestinians from the free Arab Palestinians and even their surnames sound disturbingly similar. One can only wonder what could drive a people so far as to literally imprison their brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends into refugee camps and then refuse to permit them work or any gainful activities outside their camps. Further, the vast majority of these ‘refugees’ are under the age of forty years of age, many under eighteen and have resided within the camps their entire lives. The UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) has taken on the job of tracking any refugee who have gotten from the camps and made a life for themselves in elsewhere, some as far flung as Los Angeles. The truth is according to the United Nations and UNRWA, once a family is designated as Palestinian refugee, then their generations inherit that honor and even in cases of cross marriage, an Arab Palestinian refugee and any other Arab be they Iraqi, Egyptian, Saudi or any other nationality, their children additionally become refugees. There were refugee camps in Syria one of which, the Yarmouk Refugee Camp, was heavily shelled and bombed by Bashir al-Assad once it was learned that some of its refugees had escaped and joined with one of the Islamist groups fighting Assad which made the entire camp a legal target in their now five year old war. The Yarmouk Camp was thoroughly destroyed and many of its former residents now have the unique privilege of being double refugees; they are now Syrian war refugees and Arab Palestinian refugees.

 

The only solution which makes sense since the complete destruction of stable governance throughout much of the Arab lands with Egypt narrowly escaping a plunge into the darkness which is Islamist Theocratic dictatorial rule with the Sunni version of Shia Iran with Muslim Brotherhood Imams sitting with absolute power and the power resting with the Muslim Brotherhood supported by Al-Azhar University was return to military rule until a proper governance was established. There was a price to pay for this salvation and that was a return to the strongman backed by the military and chosen by the military with the present president being the former Chief of Staff General of the Army Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. President Sisi did win an election and the test of whether democratic rule has finally come to Egypt or if they have fallen back under military dictatorship will be realized when the next elections are held and if they have beyond just the trappings of fair democratic elections or are actually verifiably honest democratic elections. Currently it is far too early to tell. Jordan has remained above the fray quite possibly because of the actions of one of the leaders in causing the fighting in Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State. When the Islamic State downed a Jordanian fighter and captured the pilot, First Lieutenant Muadh al-Kasasbeh, they could have simply held him or ransomed him or amazed the world and returned him unharmed to Jordan. Instead they very publically for all to watch burned him alive and as he was fully engulfed in flames in a video posted by the Islamic State to the Internet as if it were an enlistment poster for the group. This barbaric act and the rage shared by the people of Jordan and their King may have served to deepen their trust in his honest leadership and saved Jordan from any crumbling before the anarchic forces swallowing the Middle East from Iraq to Monaco. This leaves Israel still facing a potential situation that should the Islamic State gain sufficient power they might decide that Jordan was ripe for the taking and as a result be right on Israel’s doorstep. Should there be either a Palestinian authority Fatah led government or a hybrid Hamas-Islamic Jihad government, either would necessarily fall before the Islamic State with Hamas likely simply merging while Fatah would likely flee into Israel seeking asylum as they would be no match against Islamic State and the leadership would fear facing a horrific death if captured by the Islamic State Islamist fanatics. It is exactly because of the turmoil, confusion, violence and instability of the entirety of the Middle East that Israel must establish the most defendable borders possible against ground attack such as from Islamic State or ground supported by air attack coming from Lebanon as the Syrian war may decide that involving Israel would actually alter the inevitable breakup of the former nation of Syria. That makes it imperative that Israel end the games and simply declare the Oslo Accords in all of its mutated and contorted forms dead from this day forth. Those not connected to violence or terrorism will be permitted to remain but the higher officials will need to find a new home most likely in Europe who appeared to love them and support their hatreds of Israel. Europe is in the state of taking in all the Islamic refugees they are capable, or almost as many as offered, so a few hundred more should not even be noticed except for the media swarm asking pointed questions such as are they planning on a return, will they take their complaints to the United Nations, the International Court of Justice, be assisting one of the various terrorist armies in order to gain favor when they face the Israelis without even a single aircraft, or the ever ubiquitous where are you going from here? I can picture Abbas as he responds to the media as pictured below, and wouldn’t it be the best answer he could ever give.

 

 

Abbas answering Reporter’s question, “What you going to do next?” Abbas “I’m going to Disney World!”

 

Any way one slices it, the Arabs have more than sufficient time, offers and Israeli concessions that if they have refused everything up until now, then it may as well be, “Hasta la vista, baby!” Oh, and whatever they say, “I’ll (we’ll) be back” would be the most unadvisable as such would be tantamount to a declaration of war.

When somebody mentions the Arab-Israeli peace process the first concept out of almost everybody’s mouth is “Two State Solution” and when asked for clarification they claim “You know, the Oslo Accord thingie with there being two states living side by side with the Arabs and Jews in peace and security.” That is when I like to claim that that already has been accomplished, so why are we still talking about it? That is when I usually get the deer in the headlights stare and weird sounds as they try to wrap their brains around why I am so completely out of my mind, and then I give them the magic formula, “There are two states right now, Hamastan in Gaza and the rest is Israel.” Where I may not have had this identical word for word exchange, I have had this exchange as the basic gist of a discussion and then it devolves quickly just as any honest discussion will with anybody taking the most popular reasoning for why the negotiations keep failing, Prime Minister Netanyahu or the Jews refuse to make peace because of the settlers. I go quietly and calmly ballistic and explain the reality and they inform me that until I take a reality check they are not going to waste their time trying to teach me what really is happening but assure me right before they walk away mumbling about my sanity and shaking their heads that Jews like me are the reason there can be no peace. That is one of the blessings of having made Aliyah; that discussion has not and probably never will occur furrowing my brow unless I make the mistake for going down to Tel Aviv and entering one of the exclusive and needlessly expensive coffee shops seeking to distress myself with two state give up the old city and West Bank Zombies still living in pre Arab Spring turned Winter mindsets. The one point they make which is valid is if there is to be a two state solution then Gaza and the parts of Judea and Samaria which has erroneously become the West Bank, a name invented by Jordan during their nineteen year occupation of lands west of the Jordan River; anyway, the two Arab areas must be unified under one entity. That leads to the other problem, no peace as such can be reached until the Arab civil war between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the rulers in Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad reach some agreement on common governance over their respective enclaves. That is another thing that will not be happening too soon either as the only solution which would have any hope of approval by the Arabs themselves would likely be Hamas if they held an actual election. Without any election the only other possibility would be for the Islamic State to come and replace Hamas and scare the life out of Mahmoud Abbas who would be screaming for the IDF to come protect him from the truly scary Arabs. So, you think that Islamic State would not replace Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza? Let’s see.

 

There has already been a Gazan who died fighting with Islamic State as we mentioned yesterday reporting that Mufleh As’ad Abd al-Wahed Abu Aadra, aka Abu Abdullah, who was killed in or near Tripoli, Libya. This was reported as his wife received notice of his death on February 15, 2016 from Islamic State and she reported this and it was then reported by the Ma’an News Agency on February 16, 2016. People following the Islamic State or knew about Israel and the Arab-Israeli dispute would know that there have been Islamic State cells destroyed by the IDF before they caused any loss of life other than those who resisted arrest. A select few of the Islamic State cells were taken by the IDF within Section A which requires PA permission and thus makes it likely, or at least possible, that the PA could have detected the presence of Islamic State and requested Israeli assistance. In Gaza there are known to be Islamic State personnel who work with Hamas and Islamic Jihad arranging coordination with Islamic State forces in the Sinai Peninsula. This cooperation is partly why Egyptian President Sisi has ordered the smuggling tunnels flooded or otherwise destroyed. This has led to Hamas leadership accusing Egyptian President Sisi of being a stooge working for the Zionist Entity. Egypt has had their own difficulties with Islamic State, al-Qaeda and criminal enterprises all causing dire problems and great distress throughout the Sinai Peninsula. The real problems between the PA and Israel has nothing to do with the settlers, never did and never will because history has shown that for a real peace Israel will and has destroyed complete communities. When Egypt and Israel made their 1979 peace treaty Israel disbanded ten communities: Avshalom, Atzmona, Dikla, Holit, Netiv, HaAsara-Sinai, Nitzanei-Sinai, Ofira, Sufa, Talmei-Yosef, and Yamit. Then again in the August 2005 disengagement and unilateral effort Israel pulled out and destroyed twenty-six communities including one Bedouin village to the PA in the name of peace. The twenty-two including the Bedouin village in Gaza were: Bedolah, Bnei Atzmon (Atzmona), Dahaniyya (Bedouin), Dugit, Elei-Sinai, Gadid, Gan-Or, Ganei-Tal, Katif, Kfar-Darom, Kfar-Yam, Kerem-Atzmona, Morag, Neveh-Dekalim, Netzarim, Netzer-Hazani, Nisanit, Pe’at-Sade, Rafiah-Yam, Slav, Shirat-Hayam, and Tel-Katifa. Additionally, there were another four communities which were in areas being turned over to the PA in Judea and Samaria named Kadim, Ganim, Homesh, and Sa-Nur.

 

All too soon the PA and Hamas began skirmishing and an ever growing conflict which finally exploded through December 2006 and January 2007 culminating in February on 2007 with the two powers, the PA and Hamas splitting in June of 2007 with Hamas retaining military and civilian control in Gaza from which they have forced an average of a war every two years with Israel starting with escalating rocket attacks over ever greater areas beyond the will of any nation to have restraint before Israel even considers striking back in any forceful manner. Still, when Israel finally strikes back in force the world media responds with accusations of Israeli provocations and use of disproportionate force when Israeli defensive weapons such as the Iron Dome anti-missile systems and well-ordered society which use the nearly excessive numbers of shelters thus keeping the majority of the Israeli population safe while Hamas allows only their fighters to use sheltered areas and force their civilians into harm’s way with intent of causing maximum fatalities and injuries. Should Israel ever vacate any areas of Judea and Samaria allowing the PA to govern them without the presence of the IDF in areas very close to any point and sharing of intelligence then what would stop Hamas from gaining control and defeating the PA forces just as they had in Gaza? The answer is a simply nothing, absolutely nothing. But there is a problem for which we need to thank Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, for initiating the program which went so completely wrong and was finally, eventually documented by a media which has a history of ignoring similar social challenges faced by Israel in dealing with a resolute and fated socio-religious system which structures Arab Palestinian society and governance and their different human right’s values or lack thereof and terribly underdeveloped social constructs with vaguely defined restrictions of interactions as compared with Western society. The New Year’s Eve base social aggressions by “refugee” males to German women across the country’s major cities that anywhere where people were found in close proximity groping and other unacceptable behavior reached levels so beyond acceptable levels that women were advised not to utilize certain central train stations.

 

Perhaps an example we recently found and can be viewed below, if we can summarize and still get the ideas across. One of the more revered Islamic clerics, Imam (Mufti) Hassan al-Laham was broadcasted giving a sermon from Gaza on Palestinian Authority TV on February 8, 2016. He gave marital advice on how to handle a difficult wife. He advised that initially the husband is to warn the wife “politely” in the hope that she will see and adjust to ease the difficulty, the troublesome actions. But what if she is also a stubborn wife who heeds not her husband? “Allah created a solution for this.” The Imam continues telling the husband that if his wife is one who requires additional management that, “Allah created a solution for this” and the husband should try “hitting that does not make her ugly.” We are advised that the Prophet Muhammad advised, “Do not hit the face and do not make her ugly. In other words, not hitting that will bring the police and break her hand and cause bleeding, or hitting that makes the face ugly.” This is not going to a good place according to Western culture and Western Law but the adviser continues advising, “The hitting is not meant to disfigure, harm, or degrade. The hitting will be like a joke. He will hit her jokingly.”

 

 

The above broadcast along with the examples of the inability of merging raw Islamic “refugees” without providing some period of adjustment coupled with education in what is acceptable behavior in Europe and what behaviors will result in their arrest and potential deportation. Such offenses are serious breaches not only etiquette but highly illegal and while molesting unaccompanied women or assaulting and striking anybody are against the laws, numerous laws which when prosecuted would necessarily result in a prolonged prison time and repeated offences would result in deportation, such behavior was acceptable in war torn Syria. One could hope that the recent offenses and other behaviors by the “refugees” would have educated Europeans to the fact that there is no compromise with the behaviors results in simply more egregious behavior and has been the fueling and driving force behind Israeli dealings with the PA as well as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other “Islamic entities Europeans demand Israel deal with in good faith.” Unfortunately such has proven not to be the case. If anything it has caused the Europeans to drive their demands for Israeli concessions or even leveling accusations that Israel has not sacrificed sufficiently to the PA and if Israel would take the necessary, though self-defeating, steps required to make peace with its Muslim entities to the point of sacrificing all of Israel then the behavior of their “refugees” would no longer be so difficult. How the European Union can see doubling down on pressuring Israel will help to relieve their suffering before equivalent difficulties with their Islamic forces is purely baffling, yet that is exactly what has become the case along with a number of additional calls by European entities for further sacrificing. There can be no further compromises as every compromise up until now has only set to harden the PA hearts, as if they were Pharaoh from Israeli history; while the PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State and the rest of the Arab and Muslim world gaze at Israel as the weaker nation with no confidence in their claims begging for peace purely out of fear.

 

This has been echoed across the United States and Europe with pro-Palestinian rallies where often the chanted slogan is, “Khybar, Khybar, oh Yahud (Jews), the armies of Muhammad Come for You!” Add to that the other almost War Cry of, “From the River to the Sea-Palestine Must be Free.” This idea of Palestine existing freed from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea would have it replacing Israel, not existing side by side. Put together at rallies organized by PA agitators and other supporters of Hamas, the PA’s al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and by the liberation meaning replacing, not cooperating in any manner. This extremist view explains repeated refusal to make any compromise, and instead of making counter offers, the PA, ever since Camp David and Taba, has met offers, which they agreed to review only after requiring Israel make unprecedented and unwise sacrifices for peace, from Israel as pleas for being granted any agreement as long as they retained something far less than reasonable compromise would grant. The reason behind this absolute rejectionism resulted from the time the Israelis met the exact offer demanded by Arafat one day earlier stating his terms to President Clinton which surprisingly to all involved Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak who agreed to meet all demands which was then followed by rejection by walking out of the conference in Paris furious that Israel met the demands and Arafat returned to the Palestinian areas and initiated the Second Intifada and an end to peace talks. Ever since the demand made in Arabic to their own people has been clear, they will accept nothing less than all the lands and the death of Israel. That is the reality European demands for an Israeli surrender have produced; an irrational belief that the world led by Europe will vanquish Israel and then gift the land to the PA. I wish that were obvious delusional thinking but can one not claim that is not the result the Europeans also champion in secret in their private affairs. The PA leadership is convinced that all they will need do is wait and allow the United Nations, European Union, European sympathizing governments, and the United States will fight against Israel and bring their desired and inevitable surrender of Israel and the entirety of the Jews worldwide laid before them at their feet prostrated in submission. What makes this all the sadder is the rising numbers in Europe, the United States, World Wide and in the United Nations which has led the PA leadership to assume there is absolutely no need for them to condescend to talking with the Israelis as Israel will disappear once Europe organizes a great army to fight for Muhammad and destroy the Jewish State gifting them what once was Israel, the enemy they could never humble, let alone defeat, and then the entirety of the world coming under the rule of Islam. This is the endgame in the PA’s leadership’s minds and this is their new minimal goal which has come one step closer to fruition under President Obama who has issued many supportive claims and demanded Israel cede more lands than ever before. Between the invasion of Europe and their inroads gained in the United States and United Nations, the Arab and Muslim world believe that the entirety of the Western World will be gifted to and all they will need to do is decide on who will lead this great and wondrously new world, but that is the problems, is it not?

Currently the United States is under mismanagement and is not likely to change any time soon if the polling in the United States proves to be correct. We just cannot help thinking that the American people have lost their way and once again need someone to show them the path back to sanity. The unfortunate thing is that these polls show either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders defeating Donald Trump. Donald Trump? Are the Republicans truly serious about choosing Donald Trump, aka The Donald, as their Presidential candidate? Such a choice would guarantee the United States taking what may prove to be a terminal nap as the time is once again upon the world when they desperately require the leadership of the United States. With the leftist now ruling across the continent and Angela Merkel single-handedly may have all but destroyed much of Europe, the influx of Muslim Islamists will make things all the more unstable. Apparently Europeans forgot the cartoon draw Mohammad disaster from a few years ago when scenes as the one pictured below were anything but rare and an angry and bitter Muslims threatened every corner of Europe and their reaction was pitiful. They acquiesced and promised to make it illegal to insult Islam, the Islamic Prophet Mohammad or take any actions which the Muslims might take offense from. This produced a grievance committee which then proceeded to take offense from almost everything without exception. Europe and many in the United States, especially on the college and university campuses, are where the leaders of the world for the next fifty years are being educated that Islam is sacred while Judeo-Christian ethics and morality are depraved and rejectionable. These will be the generation who potentially will sell the world to Islam for a promise of no more prayers at which point they will need prayer more than ever before. Will the future surrender to Islam? That remains to be seen but they are not being prepared to face what will be wrought, not preparing them in the slightest. If they follow the teachings and actions of their professors and university administrators then all they will know to do is roll over and play dead hoping that their new masters do not inflict too much pain and suffering. They will have held to also hope as the only real hope is to stand for your principles. Of course that requires having principles to begin with. Below is a reminder of what was, what actually is, and what will be the result if the path is not corrected and corrected soon. Winston Churchill once stated something so applicable to the world situation of today which we will post after the images of the past, present and possibly long into the future. The choice is to be made in the next decade or two and made by the youth who have been cheated of having any knowledge of history to guide them going further. If we could advise the youth of the world to study one subject and do so on their own without any bias other than the obvious biases they know each book to hold and not a bias which must be ingrained to pass some far left or far right professor’s class, we would advise histories of the Middle East and North Africa, Europe from Alexander the Greek to modern day, the Mongols, and the years and wars of the first fifty years in United States history, a subject even our education did not teach in any real depth and that, we fear, was due to their teachers’ lack of knowledge or in depth reasons which is what is so vital today.

Winston Churchill said, as promised:

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
