Worst Nobel Peace Prize Nomination Ever?

 

There have been those questionable Nobel Peace Prizes awarded, let alone nominations. President Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for being elected and presumably because of the promises that he would be capable of forging an Palestinian-Israeli peace, bring the world to a period of global Shangri-La, or who knows, but many might doubt he lived up to such a bold beginning and definitely blew everybody’s faith in his future actions. Yasser Arafat was awarded one along with Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin for rehabilitating the PLO renaming it the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the world followed up by rewarding Arafat, his side kick and number two, Mahmoud Abbas, with billions of Dollars and Euros combined proving how much terrorism actually does pay. Sometimes one simply has to stop and give out the Homer Simpson comment of the week, “Doh!” This week an Argentinian Nobel Peace Prize winner has joined with leading Belgian Members of Parliament from across the political spectrum announcing the nomination of Marwan Barghouti, arch terrorist serving five life terms for only five of the dozens of Israelis murdered by his bombs and terror plans as well as likely hundreds injured, many horrifically suffering from crippling effects of these attacks. Never was a person so completely and utterly undeserving of a Nobel Peace Prize as the only peace he ever dealt with was the peace of the grave. This nomination has absolutely nothing to do with peace and everything to do with the European idea that any terrorist jailed by Israel is a political prisoner and none deserve their being incarcerated and should rather be celebrated by all mankind. There is a similar piece of insanity in the United States with the free Mumia Abu-Jamal who was convicted of murdering a police officer shooting him from across the street injuring the officer and then, according to a number of witnesses, walked calmly up to the injured and unarmed police officer and shot him execution style twice into the head. But he was misunderstood and knew not what he was doing and was only given a life sentence because of his race, not because he murdered a police officer in cold blood. Mumia Abu-Jamal and Marwan Barghouti are about equally qualified and delightful people but for some reason the supporters of Mumia Abu-Jamal have yet to believe he should be considered for a Nobel Peace Prize. At the risk of giving some people an idea, perhaps this year would be the perfect year to nominate and support Mumia Abu-Jamal for the Nobel Peace Prize as he would have a fair contest and good company running against him in Marwan Barghouti. This would also be the perfect year for somebody who might actually be qualified but that might be cruel to the qualified candidate as he would not have the star quality or the public support of the farthest of the far leftists in Europe and likely much of the rest of the so-called free world. Of course all bets are off if President Obama were to force a Palestinian State on Israel through the Security Council and then enforce it with NATO troops augmented by Russian, Chinese and anybody else who desired to join in and establish the presumed perfect terror state. Anyway, what would be the real difficulty should the state they form become the next Hamastan or another district of the Islamic State or the PA formed government prove just as dangerous and capable of launching thousands of rockets into the headlands of Israel, what loss would that be?

We would really like to claim surprise at this development and the Europeans nominating a terror murderer who slaughtered as many Israelis, read Jews, as he was capable of enacting plans. The Cannes Film Festival which is held annually in Cannes, France, has now hosted “Munich: A Palestinian Story” by the Lebanese filmmaker of Palestinian origin Narsi Hajjaj. This apparently wonderful, accurate, and insightful film depicts the Munich Olympic Games slaughter of the Israeli Olympic Team including athletes and coaches. The film depicts the Black September, an offshoot of the PLO and thus related sort of directly to the PA, referred to the terrorists as “freedom fighters” and the Israeli Olympic Team as “representatives of an occupying country” and likely left out a small little fact, namely that Mahmoud Abbas arranged all the training, equipping and financing, especially the financing, of the terror strike which the world got to view live as it played out but apparently times have changed. Now the terrorists are being cheered at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world and their victims as the despicable people deserving of their fate. Talk about Bizarro World? Sometimes I start to believe that the world is run by disguised family members of Mr. Mxyzptlk, the imp from the fifth dimension who one had to get to say his name backwards to return him from whence he came. The problem is that his relatives have taken new names and are serving in European Union and European government positions under assumed names so that it is impossible to return these malevolent and destructive entities to their proper dimension where they can harm the real world no further. Additionally, Iran is hosting its second annual Holocaust Cartoon Competition and France holds the honor of sending the largest contingent of competitors, of cartoonists who are likely their most talented, to compete and likely bring home many awards and potentially the gold or silver. Oh, did we mention that the French also recently voted to remove all Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and other historic locations and did so referring to Jerusalem as al-Quds, the Arabic name for Israel’s eternal and ancient Capital City. Making this theater of the absurd complete, the French claim they are qualified to hold a conference on what need be done in order to reestablish the Arab/Palestinian peace talks with Israel. They are attempting to have a minimum of twenty national representatives including numerous other European nations, potentially Arab and Muslim nations, many other anti-Israeli nations which harbor great amounts of anti-Semitism as well and have exclusively excluded Israel from taking part in the discussions as what could Israel add other than confusion and occluding and muddying the waters making reaching some just peace deal which could then be applied to the situation. And what if the French confab gets it all wrong and terrorism rains rockets onto Tel Aviv, it’s only Israel, only Jews, why bother with any concern, they will just be getting what they deserve and better them than the Europeans. Maybe if Israel is served up juicy enough on a silver platter then maybe the terrorists will love Europe and leave them alone leaving Europe in peace. The problem is not Europe, it is Israel and beyond taking out Israel there would be no reason to continue any terrorism in Europe as the Jihad would end with Israel, right?

For some reason we believe that the French, the European Union, the European governments and the others outside of the Arab and Muslim worlds might not honestly understand what is driving the terrorism. It has little to do actually with Israel as it has to do with Islam and making Islam the sole religion on Earth and conquering everything for Allah. There exists the further prospect of insuring that the correct kind of Islam is practiced everywhere. The initial fight will be against those Muslims who are not practicing the religion with sufficient fervor and obedience, especially those people who chose to convert when threatened with some form of horrific death. Then there will be the struggle between Sunni and Shiite forms of Islam which will be a deadly, long and hard fought struggle killing hundreds of millions before the struggle can be claimed to have reached a termination point with either all of Sunni or Shia Muslims destroyed or converted as this has been a fight which has risen and fallen but never reached its logical end. The carnage does not stop there as there is much more to be done to complete the forging of a pure and special form of Islam. We will assume that the Sunni form of Islam will eventually prove prominent as there is a four to one ratio of Sunni Muslims to Shia Muslims.

 

Next comes the largely three way struggle between the main forms of Sunni Islam; the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State and Wahabbists. Eventually there would be new outcroppings of new forms of Islam with many being within the surviving form which initially would likely attempt to keep as quiet as possible and avoid the main struggle hoping against hope they will be permitted to retain their new form of Islam with some minor alterations to fit with the winner of the three way struggle. Truth is they would not get that opportunity as they would face hostilities as soon as they refused to fight in the ongoing war. Finally there would be purges based on color of skin, former religion, claims of apostasy, racial origins, and eventually purity of Arab lineage. It is very possible that by the time there could be a real and lasting peace the fighting will have murdered close to two-thirds of the entire population and even possibly over eighty percent. Islam is more of a promise for violent conflict than it teaches peace and acceptance of those of a different version of Islam, let alone practicing anything outside of Islam. How far the violence would go in destroying the Human Race is difficult to predict but something tells us that it would easily pass half and also climb past three quarters before peace could be declared. The problem is there may be inquisitions at any time should any group of Muslims be deemed requiring correction, a lesson which results in death more than correcting. Life and death will be determined largely as if by lottery as Imams will be granted full power over the Muslims residing in any area and fights breaking out between two Imams whose flocks resided in close proximity could have suspicions grow between them and finally reaching some breaking point and elevating into violence. The potential for such a breakout into violence to spread from its initial point of conflict across the face of the Earth would be one of many dangerous occurrences. And now there are Europeans who believe their intelligence and knowledge of the Arab Israeli conflict are going to attempt another peace initiative which, if we may pose a guess, will be long on demands of Israel and devoid of enforcement on any items demanded of the PA and accompanied by an influx of funding which will astonish even the most greedy of their peace makers who will also be expecting Israel to be forced to release Marwan Barghouti in addition to the majority of terror prisoners and surrender all lands beyond the Green Line as well. Nobel Peace Prizes being granted as a political statement and as an assault on a sovereign nation is beyond disgusting though some of the other potential changes fired from a Paris Convention to establish a “just” peace with the PA are beyond any rational expectation, something which Israel should expect and be ready to deal with the consequences which will once again be determined by people with no dog in the fight beyond their fictitious tying of Israel as the sole trigger of terrorism. Many nations have this fallacious concept as the reason they are assaulted by terrorists and presumably threatening Israel and all but delivering the Jews to a killing site is what these leaders honestly tell themselves will bring an end to terror attacks at home. Too bad they will have to learn this the more difficult way. No other explanation covers the actualities of Islamic terror and more aptly.

France Excursion Again Into Folly

 

One might reason that after the terror attack last November 13, 2015, which claimed one-hundred-thirty lives and wounded, many horrifically, another three-hundred-fifty-two others from across all sectors of Paris that France would choose to have nothing to do with Arabs, yet this is exactly what they are planning to do. After combinations of suicide bombers and assault teams with automatic fire assault rifles striking numerous locations where Parisians gathered at various events such as the Bataclan Theatre, Café Bonne Bière, La Casa Nostra, La Belle Équipe, Stade de France among other locations would have been sufficient for France to wash their hands of all conflicts between the Arabs and the rest of the world and taken a low profile, but not a chance. The French are planning on launching an offensive to drag the Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas back to negotiations with Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu. They have set the date as May 30, 2016, for a Paris meeting of Foreign Ministers from twenty countries as a preliminary planning session to bring the peace process back to life, according to Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault. Why not simply paste a bullseye on the meeting location inviting the Islamic State to strike here. Foreign Minister Ayrault spoke to four newspapers, including Israel’s Haaretz and the pan-Arab daily Al Quds Al-Arabi, where he specified Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) would not be invited to the meeting in Paris. Well, thanks to Hashem for little favors as this removes the necessity for Israel to decline the invitation. Ayrault did recognize that, “The two sides are further apart than ever,” but unfortunately further stated, “We cannot do nothing. We have to act before it’s too late.” Ayrault was not finished as he continued, “In Israel, the government is more and more ambiguous on the issue of a two-state solution and the Palestinians are more and more divided. We have to explain to the Israelis that settlement activity is a dangerous process and that it puts their own security in danger.” Please stop, you’re killing me here. What? You have more. Fine, what is it? “I am not naive,” Foreign Minister Ayrault added further exclaiming, “I am perfectly sincere. There is no alternative; the other option is fatalism and I reject that.” One can only guess what French President Francois Hollande is reacting to this. Oh no, you’re joking. No, you’re not, see below? This may be more than we can bear at such a time.

The one bright spot is one we reported on earlier in our article Presidents Barack Hussein Obama and François Hollande Next Cooperative where the new French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault backtracked on the threat last month, saying France would not “automatically” recognize a Palestinian state if its initiative fails. Israeli Prime Minister along with numerous other Ministers both from his Cabinet and the Knesset all rejected the original plan by former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, whose full support of all things Palestinian is well known, who had officially insisted that had the negotiations failed the French were ready to recognize the State of Palestine with its borders along the Green Line and all of East Jerusalem as their Capital City. Such a move would have placed over three-quarters of a million Israeli Jews, Arabs and others at the mercies of the PA, as if there were such a thing. Anyone who had followed issues in the Middle East, especially regarding the PA and Hamas as well as the Islamic State realized that without the IDF to protect both these Israeli citizens and even the rulers of the PA, all would end up murdered including Mahmoud Abbas as either Hamas or Islamic State would assuredly immediately move in and enact a violent and hostile coup to remove the PA and place the entire area under the most severe form of Sharia murdering any from the PA who they perceived not in agreement with their rule as well as any non-Muslim residing in the areas. This would include the few Arab Christians largely residing in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. That plan would have proven unworkable, unenforceable and hopefully rejected by all concerned but cool heads and common sense are not things expected in large quantities when it comes to addressing the Arab-Israeli conflict.

 

French Foreign Minister Ayrault has reportedly declared that the discussions being sought would be based on the 2002 Saudi peace initiative, a proposal which has been approved by the Arab League but has not been accepted by Israel as it exchanges promises to discuss peace in the future for complete concessions to the Arab League and Saudi Arabian idea of a final solution of the Green Line and East Jerusalem being the interim recognized border acceded before any actual peace agreement. Such a solution would simply be a reset to the borders of 1967 before the June Six Day War setting up the opportunity for another go round and renewed open hostilities and terror war brought once again to the heart of Jerusalem where Arab marksmen would sit atop the walls of the Old City or any high structure and shoot Israelis when they were presented as a potential target making much of western Jerusalem a “no man’s land” where crossing the street in daylight hours was suicide and now with night scopes even the night becomes a potentially fateful choice to cross a street. Additionally, it would place Israeli areas in range of even the most rudimentary Hamas rockets not to mention what the more powerful and accurate Iranian missiles could strike as depicted on the map below. This would become completely untenable within days as all Israeli business, production, distribution and life would grind to a halt with the entirety of the nation outside the IDF would be forced into the underground shelters as any above ground shelter would be instantly vulnerable and only ten feet or more of earth would be capable of withstanding more than three days of strikes. The map highlights the main area where well over three-quarters of Israeli power structures, residences, manufacturing and a number of nuclear power generating plants and the area under direct line-of-sight threat which would allow for spotters to give corrective instructions from well concealed positions would include everything up to and including Haifa, possibly even to Akko. Ramat David Airbase, Ben Gurion International Airport, Hatzerim Airbase, Nevatim Airbase, Dimona Nuclear Research Center, Beer Sheva and much of the Negev Desert with additional spotting which could be provided with good binoculars to assist the aiming of rockets fired from Gaza, which would readily cover the remainder of southern Israel leaving only the smallest of areas outside line-of-sight by those occupying the Judean Ridges overlooking central Israel, potentially assured of relative safety. That would leave areas such as Nahariya, Safed, Ma’alot, Karmiel and other areas in the Northern and Western Galilee.

When questioned about what steps France would take if and when these talks fail to materialize or fail to reach an acceptable agreement, Ayrault stated, “To speak now about what France will do or not do in the case of failure would not be productive. In the case of failure, France will act according to its responsibility.” As is usual, this initiative was meant to placate the PA and mitigate the necessity of Mahmoud Abbas presenting ultimatums at the United Nations (UN) and especially having Arab States file motions with the Security Council as any items brought before the Security Council require votes and more often than not receive a veto from a minimum of one of the five permanent member, Britain, France, Russia, China and the United States. The French initiative also allowed for the PA to appear reasonable as PA Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki announced their retraction of plans to file papers for an UN resolution demanding an end to “Israeli settlement expansion” placing such a move on hold in order to focus instead on the upcoming French proposal for a peace conference. Al-Malki further stated “We should really sail smoothly in a way that the French initiative will continue.” He further postulated the position that the Palestinians would decide on formally presenting the draft text at a later time. The most interesting uncontested but unconfirmed rumor claimed that France, Egypt and Saudi Arabia had discouraged the Palestinians from moving ahead with the proposed measure as that would have put pressure on the United States to once again use their veto, even though there were reports United States President Barack Obama would buck longstanding policy and allow it to pass which could have placed the pressure on the French and/or British to use their veto to kill the measure, something they would not be overly joyful but would have done that which was necessary.

 

The fact is that Israel has not added so much as a single brick or erected as much as an awning, let alone built or expanded the “settlements,” which are all within Area C where Israel is permitted full rights and control both militarily and civilly while the PA is presumably forbidden to build in the area. Despite that ban, European government, especially Sweden, the Netherlands, France and others along with the European Union (EU), have been purchasing land and constructing housing and shops and then gifting them to PA Arab in order to prevent any Israeli claims to these lands. These efforts have been carefully aimed at the E-1 area where the EU threatened UN sanctions should Israel have built as planned and did so after the land was graded to allow erecting structures which could have linked the major Israeli cities in Judea with Jerusalem and now these cities will be separated from Israeli lands and thus allow for the PA to claim them with full European backing. These “Arab Settlements” also ring the outside of East Jerusalem which the EU and European governments demand be made the Capital City of any Palestinian state refusing to recognize Israeli annexation and granting citizenship with a path to full Israeli rights and already permitting their voting in local and city elections, a right they already availed themselves of in the last citywide elections. The EU and European governments wish to strip these Arabs of their Israeli citizenship and place them back under the PA, a move not discussed with the residents of East Jerusalem by the Ministers of the EU, the numerous members meeting in Paris, their Arab League leaders and especially France who may be viewed as the leading Islamist state explaining why they are taking the lead, because had they been approached they just might have informed even the French that many of them have made plans to flee into Western Jerusalem and further into the rest of Israel before allowing themselves to be placed back under PA rule. They likely would even not wish to see the Eifel Tower and its newest lighting arrangement.

Now allow for us to give predictions of the outcome resulting from this grand show of futility. The first stipulation will be a longwinded press release, hopefully we will only need to read a transcript as who desires listening to another Foreign Minister with long faced and austere looking men crowded in behind the speaker most holding their hands politely before them or clutching a folder for the record and appearance. The statement will begin congratulating all assembled for their efforts for peace and for giving this initiative the best chance of not completely falling on its face. Then there will be grand and eloquent words about the desirability for peace and how great efforts and compromise will be required. With any luck he will bite the bullet and even claim that these sacrifices must come from both sides. Be all that as it may; there will be a special desire for a grand and sweeping measure undertaken in order to initiate dialogue which the world so desperately realizes is the necessary first step to a solution. Then they lower the boom, a demand that Israel release Marwan Barghouti as he is the popular Palestinian people’s choice to succeed Mahmoud Abbas and they demand that he be permitted to take the next in line position and start to work with Abbas as Mahmoud Abbas had understudied Yasser Arafat. There will be no reference as to why he is currently in an Israeli detention facility (these are too close to a club med vacation than a prison as they have picnics with their families, conjugal visits, and so many other privileges that there have been cases of PA citizens walking calmly up to a checkpoint and pulling out a knife and politely asking to be arrested as they cannot find work in Nablus or wherever and they want to go live in jail as that would be a step up for them and at least they will eat three meals a day). There will be more demanded as an initial investment for peace and Israel will be pressed to additionally release anywhere from one-thousand to five-thousand and even empty their prisons of all PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS, Hezballah, al-Qaeda and other terrorists. Never mind how many Israelis they may have murdered and maimed for life, some horrifically. With Marwan Barghouti his sentencing to five life terms to be served sequentially, not all at once such that if he was ever granted release on the current prison term there would be four more waiting and he would remain incarcerated, or at least that was the plan. Allow us to quote directly from the “American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise” (AICE) on their Jewish Virtual Library entries on Marwan Barghouti.

Marwan Barghouti is a Palestinian terrorist currently in jail for murdering Israelis. He is one of the most popular figures of the Palestinian uprising and has been repeatedly called on to run for Palestinian leadership position, despite his current jailing.
Barghouti is a senior Fatah leader in the West Bank. Schooled in Hebrew during his time in Israeli jails, Barghouti was a field Fatah leader during the first intifada of 1987, when he was deported by Israel. Barghouti, 42, has struck a chord with ordinary Palestinians. The son of a West Bank farmer, he has appeared frequently at demonstrations, funerals and in the Arab press. Israel asked that the Palestinian Authority extradite Barghouti for questioning in connection with a number of West Bank shootings, but the PA refused. Israel arrested him in 2002 and put him on trial for his role in terrorist attacks against Israelis.
On May 20, 2004, the Tel Aviv District Court convicted Barghouti of three terror attacks in which five Israelis were murdered, and also of attempted murder, membership in a terror organization and conspiring to commit a crime. He was acquitted of 33 other murders with which he was charged, because of a lack of evidence. On June 6, 2004, Barghouti was sentenced to five consecutive life terms and 40 years.
The court said in its verdict that “Barghouti was responsible for providing the field units with money and arms….” The judges said that the attacks were sometimes “based on instructions” from Yasser Arafat.
The court found Barghouti responsible for a June 2001 attack in Maale Adumim, in which a Greek monk was murdered, a January 2002 terror attack on a gas station in Givat Ze’ev, a March 2002 attack at Tel Aviv’s Seafood Market restaurant, in which three people were murdered, and a car bomb attack in Jerusalem.
David Saranga, a spokesman for Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said, “The five people who were killed in these attacks that he ordered will not return to life. The widows and orphans will not get their loved ones back. But at least justice was done.

 

They list their source material in their Page on Marwan Barghouti. Their description of the crimes he was associated with as providing materials, transportation, weapons, explosive devices including bomb-belts for a number of suicidal-homicide-bombers, technical planning and other support for deadly attacks. He has also carried out what are termed cleansing operations within the PA controlled areas against Arabs who were suspected of dealing with Israelis such as passing information or even simple selling a small patch of land to an Israeli which is punishable by death. He carried out such sentences which never really required a trial and some cleansings later were seen to have been the method for settling differences of opinions and such personal issues. Of course Marwan Barghouti will be presented as the victim of Israeli mean-spiritedness as they will with the other terrorists which the French and twenty friends will demand Israel release for the grandest of all commitments from Mahmoud Abbas, he will allow a photo-op where he is shaking Prime Minister Netanyahu’s hand and after that the negotiations will go south and end with Israel being blamed by the Europeans and their friends in the Arab League and the UN and various aligned Human Rights Groups and NGOs. We have all seen this movie before and it will end with the majority of those released returning to their trade of murdering Jews as that is what they do. A select few will be given high ranking positions in the PA protective services where they will be given a machinegun and be responsible for training new recruits and planning their attacks. Marwan Barghouti would be given the desired position and as soon as it appeared that he might be ready to replace Abbas and work with Hamas, ISIS or Iran, he will end up back in Israeli custody set up for the fall if he is fortunate or otherwise he will turn up dead, shot multiple times and the IDF will be blamed, or should we say credited. It will not prove to be the IDF and the PA will never submit or allow any real investigation; he will just be dead and no threat to Abbas. If we are all lucky the French will awaken from their stupor and figure out that two plus two is four and not five.

Pope Francis, during his visitation to the Holy Lands, was sure to make a very public statement over the plight of the Palestinian Arabs as he made a highly publicized stop at the exact section of the security barrier where Pope Francis claimed to make a prayer for a unified Arab Palestinian State emphasizing the proposed relationship to, as scrawled on that very section of the barrier, the similarity of the Warsaw Ghetto’s walls and the Israeli built security barrier, a separation object that is largely a fence but along certain stretches is required to be an actual wall such as within heavily built up areas so that it also keeps bullets and explosives from being easily launched into Israeli areas safeguarding both Arabs and Jews of all religions and all others from terrorist assaults on their lives and which has resulted in a highly effective tool in preventing homicide/suicide bombers, homicidal vehicle attacks and sniper attacks of various varieties bringing such attacks down to becoming a rarity compared to previous attacks before the barrier was constructed. Further, Pope Francis made it publically emphasized that his trip began with meetings with Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinians which he made sure to enter from Jordan flying initially into the Jordanian capital city of Amman specifically to avoid any possible meeting with Israeli officials. The Pope went further as he make a long procession, almost a victory parade, accompanied by numerous Arab Palestinian leadership from Bethlehem to Jerusalem emphasizing in his remarks the plight and flight from Bethlehem of its once predominant Christian population making heavy implications that such a sorry state of affairs had everything to do with Israeli ‘occupation’ and the hardships caused by the Israeli government, meaning the Jewish People, completely absolving the Arab Palestinians and their history of antagonism and persecution of the Christians causing the massive flight in fear for their lives from threats and actual terrorist aggressions.

 

This was followed by a visit to Israel where Pope Francis had a totally different persona becoming somewhat aggressive and antagonistic demanding the Catholic Church be granted their inalienable rights to ownership of large areas of Jerusalem with special emphasis on newly made claims to the building which houses the gravesite of King David claiming the room above King David’s tomb was a possible Christian Holy Site where the Last Supper had recently been claimed to have taken place moving it from the previous traditional spot where there were no contentious claims to this aggressively contentious place where it placed this Christian site above and over a highly Jewish site and further the Pope demanded rights to offer prayer services, a privilege granted and almost immediately abused by attempting to hold such prayers specifically on days where Jews had particularly offered up prayers from the site and taking assurances to hold these prayer before the scheduled Jewish services thus intentionally making the site void for Jewish prayer. The Pope was far from done with his assault on Judaism as well as launching additional assaults on Israel and Israeli claims within the Holy Lands in general at times appearing to insinuate obliquely that the Jews were without any religious claims as they were no longer recognized as having any religious rights having been supplanted and superseded making void any Jewish religiously made claims having been replaced by Christianity.

 

This particular claim made by the Pontiff has ramifications beyond the replacement theology where it is postulated that the Jews have become damned as replaced as the chosen people by the Christians, the Pope would claim the Catholic Church, and no longer favored by the L0rd and cast forth from Jerusalem specifically and without claims throughout the Holy Lands. Pope Francis has, by renewing the replacement theology of the past, set the precedent that Hashem can and has broken vows and promises made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, King David and others which identified the Jewish People as those chosen to carry His Message to the rest of the world has been abrogated and transferred to the Catholic Church which makes the supersessions claimed by Islam claiming that the Christians have themselves been cast off as were the Jews making the Muslims not only the replacement in eyes of Hashem but also the final chosen peoples to carry forth the messages of Hashem and, going one step further, the ones chosen to rule all of humanity going even further afield of a similar claim indigenous to the Christian faith as Judaism never held that the world would be their inheritance, they claimed only a rather insignificant measure of land strategic only in its central location to Europe, Africa and Asia being the region where the three continents converge and having ports which can connect the two main trade routes which have since been serviced by the Suez Canal.

 

The reassertion of the policy of the Catholic Church having replaced the Jews as those having a covenant with Hashem has left the Catholic Church also subjected to being replaced as the chosen of Hashem which is exactly the claim made by Islam. Carrying the replacement and the sole holy religion has also seen both Catholicism, in the more native guise of Christianity, and Islam to thus interpret such to authorize their sovereignty over the entire planet in order for them to properly prepare for the return of Jesus which had been carried one step further by the Islamic extremists claim that their religion being the sole religion Divinely inspired as the replacement, the final replacement of both Judaism and Christianity not only should rule over all of Earth but also be the sole religion practiced by all mankind. This has been carried out to the letter by ISIS as well as being the stated end goal by Iran, Hamas, Hezballah and various other claimants to being the sole pure remaining practitioners of Islam as defined by Muhammad and is behind a very real threat being made by ISIS and a number of their adherents. The agents for ISIS in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), why that redundancy is required by all that is politically correct makes me really desire to cease the practice, and I shall endeavor to do so going forth, are requesting for a list of all the Christians residing in (East) Jerusalem and their addresses to be given to those ISIS representatives by the faithful of Muhammad, note that not all are claiming faithful to ISIS following the practice of deference when outnumbered and until gaining sufficient numbers, somewhere around twenty percent, before becoming more forceful and soon thereafter, around thirty-five percent, taking rule by force and demanding total and complete allegiance followed by choice of becoming part of the faithful as defined by ISIS to the sword, otherwise death. They want these lists as soon as possible such that they can make the necessary plans and make sure they have the necessary power and people to carry out an ethnic cleansing of the Christians residing in Eastern Jerusalem. They have not requested such a list of the Jews residing within the area as they likely believe that those entire neighborhoods are easily known and identifiable.

 

This list will necessarily be assembled with an assault plan in mind by which the vast majority of the Christians residing in Eastern Jerusalem will be forced from the area implied by the sword and not by choice but such will probably be a logistics driven decision. The ISIS planners will take the precaution of having sufficient deployment of forces such that each unit will have a flanking unit on either side or at a close proximity allowing the massing of forces should any resistance be mounted such that they can quickly and without sacrificing their intended missions gather sufficient force to swarm any resistance counting on numbers to turn the tide of battle. Such has been the tactic used by ISIS as well as preparing the area for their assault before-hand. Not possessing sufficient artillery ISIS instead uses vehicle bombs and homicide/suicide bombers to soften their intended targets instilling confusion and disorganization amongst their intended target before they follow-up with swarming the target neutralizing any recovery minimizing their target any time to regroup and form a coordinated counterattacks or even an organized defense with overlapping fields of fire and the other considerations usually carried out well in advance and practiced including tactics of the enemy being interjected at unannounced times to test procedures for just such scenarios. The target in this instance is basically a cleansing operation intended to either clear an area of any opposition or make clear that certain types residing within an area should necessarily depart before they too face the determined business end of an ISIS representative’s weapon. Their announced target date for this cleansing of the population for Allah is the final day of Ramadan which falls in July 16, 2015.

 

The first determination which must be realized by Israeli police and military forces is whether to act as an intervention in force early on and prevent the organization of ISIS forces, wait until they have gathered so as to maximize arrests, intervene as soon as the assembled ISIS forces pose a threat or to simply ignore the threat and only respond to calls in an usual manner leaving the Arab Palestinians pretty much to their own ability. The final option is actually an option not supported by Torah and Jewish Law as we are directed to protect human life as even the lowest amongst us, the beggar, the infirm, the stranger and others we might normally divert our attentions from are still lives we are commanded to care for and keep safe. The concept that each life is potentially an entire nation thus if one saves one life it is as if one has saved a world. That basically means that Israeli defense and law enforcement forces must be prepared for and the one which is most feasible resulting in there being no loss of life be the ones sent for further considerations. Another consideration should be by which of the tactics that prevents any innocent casualties would allow for the most ruinous of setbacks for ISIS and at the same time making their claims of bringing the reincarnation of the Caliphate into question. There needs to be one more principled consideration, the threat to Israeli personnel and citizens, not to claim that any one life is of greater importance than another as that is beyond our ability to reason and is best left to the Creator who knows all things, Hashem. There is one consideration which must be made initially; which is whether or not this threat posed is valid and thus worthy of making and practicing for such an eventuality. Most ISIS threats issued have proven to be real and worthy of notice, but that does not necessarily mean that this attack threat must automatically be considered valid. This threat might be being presented to gauge the level of Israeli response to threats in order to more closely study the anatomy of such a response. Whatever the reasoning behind such a threat, Israeli leadership can be assured they will be held totally responsible for any casualties outside Israeli personnel. Any other nation would be the recipient of sympathy and offers of assistance with the aftermath with support in repairing any damage, aid money to augment responses training in preparation as if there is a singular attack response which would be universally applied to every attack and resolve all problems and serious planning for special situations such as a visit and speech by another head of state.

 

The importance of responding both effectively and forcefully against any initial attack while not going to an overboard approach cannot be overestimated in this instance. Should Israel present an overly cautious and overt response to this particular threat, then ISIS planners would have an effective but simple approach to fomenting fear within Israel by simply pretending to plan an attack and allow the overt, heavy-handed Israeli ramping-up of security measures. Fortunately, for actual events such as parades, speeches and other events or places where people congregate such as train and bus stations and malls; Israel does a fabulous and renowned level of successful security to meet the requirement necessary for each location and expected crowd. Since all ISIS would need to do to estimate the Israeli response to any situation would be to go study any previous similar situation and view the control of the threat level caused and they would have their answer. Pushing a threat against Israel on her own soil and thus giving her home field advantage will simply make everything that much more difficult for ISIS. In this instance Israel will be required to bring to the table an actual threat assessment and response plan as should ISIS actually follow through on a mission to slaughter as many civilian innocents, almost especially any of the numerous minority populations, as Israel is held to the highest expectation of levels possible in the world. Israel is the only nation expected to be capable of providing on a consistent and near universal level security superior to any European nation, any Western nation and even particularly the United States. Israeli security is expected to match when provided for the most insignificant of those amongst us a level of public security roughly the equivalent of that provided the Queen of England, and Israel has thus far throughout her brief but situation filled history met that challenge almost universally; Baruch Hashem. Anybody wishing an actual example of similar situations and the difference between Israeli response and another nation with proper expectations of being capable in a security situation such as a hostage crisis, simply compare the handling of the 1972 Olympic Games abduction of the Israeli team in Munich where most of the Israeli team consisting of six Israeli coaches and five Israeli athletes were taken hostage and ended up murdered along with one German police officer while five Black September members were eliminated in the regrettable failed rescue attempt where the plans for the rescue operation were poorly executed and all of the requested aid did not arrive on scene until two hours after the stand-off and siege began leading to the conflagration that murdered most of the Israelis tied up in the helicopter which was detonated with a grenade thrown by one of the terrorists compared to the Entebbe raid by an elite IDF unit responding to the hijacking of an Air France flight and the holding of Israeli and Jewish passengers and crew numbering over one hundred victims at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, a distance of over 2,500 miles (4,000 km) in Operation Entebbe, as it came to be known, on July 4, 1976 (giving Israelis a reason to celebrate on as high a level as the people in the United States could on that nation’s bicentennial celebrations) where all but four of the one-hundred-six hostages were rescued with the IDF team suffering five injured and a sole fatality of one of the team commanders and older brother to a future Israeli Prime Minister, Lt. Col. Yonatan Netanyahu, and all of the terrorists either killed or injured along with almost half of the approximately one hundred Ugandan military troops providing security for the terrorists. Israel had offered assistance and even to handle a rescue attempt with the German government who not only refused the Israeli offer but informed Israeli government officials that any Israelis sent to Germany would be refused entry at the airport and returned to Israel as this was a German operation and Israel had no right to interfere. Perhaps the Germans should have turned it over to the Israelis and thus make Israel responsible for the results.

 

But what is it they say about history, it is what it is and physics has not yet figured out how to alter history, only politicians and the media have such power. That is why when the history is written about the July 16, 2015 ISIS Ramadan assault intending to murder every Christian possible throughout Eastern Jerusalem the only credit or blame for this intended catastrophe in the manner of the cleansing of Mosul, the destruction of the two-thousand-eight-hundred-year-old capital of the Assyrian empire, Khorsabad, including its seven gates and the city with its most highly regarded sixty-four foot wall erected around 713 BCE by King Sargon II during his reign and nearly completely demolished in the beginning of the twenty-first century (or the fifteenth century on the Islamic calendar), parts of which have been preserved in museums in Baghdad, Paris, London and Chicago; destroyed thousands of books in libraries across the lands they have savagely rampaged with some of the books such as the rare books in Mosul are irreplaceable and singular remnants of wisdom and writings from ancient to the modern times; reintroduced slavery on a massive scale and especially the selling of woman as sexual slaves to the highest bidder, some women have been returned for receipt of a percentage of her resale price; burned, drowned, prisoners alive; shot, and beheaded people sentenced to death for even minor offences or taken prisoner; crucified Christians; blown apart prisoners shoved into a car with anti-tank missile; taken sledge hammers to ancient sculptures, vases, pottery destroying ancient displays in museums; and promised to bring this parade of horrors to every corner of the globe should they be allowed that possibility. This is the assembly of monsters across continents with fellow travelers identifying and subjugating their will all in a similar vein such as Boko Haram in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad; and other equally offensive and revolting acts all threatening to replace the comfortable lives of the decadent Western world should they be given that chance. That is their promise and where is the response from the supposed civilized world? They are either leading from behind or covering the back of the leader leading from behind all in all leaving Israel to fight the world’s war and stop the advance of those who desire a return to the tenth century, a backwards jolt on either calendar, especially the Jewish calendar which is in the fifty-eighth century.
