As Long as They All Hate

 

We have always held that if you are going to be denounced, sanctioned, held as a diabolical daemon in the United Nations General Assembly, receive threats from the European Union and member states and bludgeoned with words of war from the Arab world and generally made a pariah; then you may as well do whatever serves your needs and to hell with everyone else. We have seen the guaranteed death of the two state solution in any number of ways. The Palestinian education, or should we say indoctrination, system has set their belief structure that the only peaceful solution left to them is the complete destruction of Israel and the death of every Jew. Just for clarification, they teach the death of every Jew, not Israeli and not just Israeli Jews but all Jews everywhere which is possible only should they conquer the world. The PLO Charter has fairly similar wordings, goals and aims as does the Hamas Charter which also calls for their conquest of the world. People laugh when they are told these things and claim that nobody is so delusional as to believe they are going to conquer the world, that’s just plain crazy. Well, yes, it is crazy but that does not mean they do not believe they will actually conquer the world. It does not matter if the leaders know that world conquest is a pipe dream, as long as the people are sold on that idea, they will fight until their dying day, which their fighting may advance by years through another senseless death in a war that cannot be won and also will not end until totally and utterly defeated. Keep in mind that the Islamic State also expects to conquer the world, Iran’s leadership sells the people on their conquering the world; the Imams in Saudi Arabia believe they will conquer the world under Wahhabism; the Imams teaching at Al-Azhar University in Cairo (pictured below), Egypt, the leading center for Islamic knowledge in the world, also sells their Imams on the fact that Islam is destined to conquer the world and it will be their version of Sunni Islam which will accomplish this; and the Ottoman Turks also set out to conquer the world and succeeded in conquering the Islamic world, or at least a good part of it. In Islam, world conquest is one of the main tenets after the Five Pillars of Islam which are Shahadah which means belief that there is only one god, Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger; Salah which means prayers are to be given Allah five times a day; Zakat which means giving alms, charity, of 2.5% of income; Hajj which is making the pilgrimage to the house of Allah in Mecca at least once during your life; and Fasting which is the fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramadan. So, why not just add another pillar and admit that Islam demands that Muslims not rest until the entire world has fallen before them and all have either converted or been put to the sword. The Jizya tax for unbelievers to pay as protection under Islam is a temporary fix which in time is presumed to pass and the other two alternatives are to be implemented, convert or die. So, what does one do knowing that their problem with the Arab Palestinians can only be resolved to their satisfaction with your death and the conquest of your country by whatever means are necessary and that no rest can be afforded Israel as the land has been declared a Waqf which means that “every grain of sand is a holy piece of Islam” according to the definition of Waqf being a religious endowment of an area, in this case all of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea according to the Palestinian leadership.

So, the enemy refuses any compromise and is willing, as we have already witnessed, to send all ages of youth starting with ten year old children armed with knives who are sworn to jihad and will attack as long as they have life left in them even if mortally wounded they will still attempt to kill whomever comes close including aid personnel who are attempting to treat their wounds. That is the level of fanaticism faced currently in Israel and coming rapidly to Europe and possibly beyond into the United States, Canada and anywhere else taking in the “Syrian refugees” who have numbers of males between the ages of fourteen and forty and who are unaccompanied by a wife, girlfriend or children. These are not refugees people, this is a fighting force, an advance column which will be learned in quick order, ask the French as they are entering the first phase of the Islamic war for the conquest of France. Israel has been dealing with this war from day one when on May 15, 1948, when Israel was first declared a nation with her borders defined as being from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, sounds familiar doesn’t it, and six nations’ armies invaded from every border with the genocidal intent of slaughtering every Jew and taking their wealth and possibly enslaving many of the women to be used to propagate more Muslim children. They promised wealth, herds of sheep, free land and houses, all the belongings of the Jew and all other spoils of war as defined in the Quran, which includes the enslavement of their defeated opponents women and the taking of children too young to be educated and have a strong attachment to any religion and might make good Muslims after being indoctrinated. That definition of the rewards for jihad against Israel and the Jews has not changed and if you die while performing jihad you go instantly to Islamic heaven where there are lush fields of grass, waterfalls, rivers, wines, and seventy-two permanent virgins who regain their virginity after you take them such that they are always fresh young, virgin, raven haired and beautiful. You cannot make this stuff up, well, apparently you can but your name would need to be Muhammad as such is beyond our imagination. Our imagination is so poor that we can only find one answer to this situation and it will not make even many of the Israeli politicians happy as they are mired in a false promise which was made at Oslo in the accursed Oslo Accords. There was the invention of two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. There was only one problem with that agreement, one side lied. The actions of Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian indoctrinated generations since 1993 and even before have proven that the Arab Palestinians will not accept two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security, they want it all and they want it now or whenever as long as it takes to force the Jews from their lands or murder them where they stand and take the lands which Oslo defined as to be shared; they have decided they do not wish to share or play well with others. This is the reality from which Israel has to decide what she wishes to do.

 

So, what are the choices and how can we rate them for viability? Well, we can continue to offer new and slightly different proposals for establishing the two state solution as we have been doing since 1993 in September. It was a sunny Monday afternoon on the White House Lawns in Washington D.C., the thirteenth of September to be exact, and the negotiations have continued ever since. Since that time the Israelis have been systematically driven back one concession at a time while the Palestinians refused to even ratify their acceptance of the Oslo Accords, everybody has simply assumed their accepting it formally and never checked, or cared to check. Their one necessary concession was to change their Charter so it would no longer call for the destruction of Israel and they were only pressed once where the United States State Department joined a session of the Palestinian Parliament to witness their vote to change the Charter and they took a vote and passed a measure calling for a committee to be appointed to assess a proper and acceptable alteration to comply with the agreement to change the Charter. They never appointed the committee and never changed a word of their Charter which remains calling for the complete destruction of Israel. Since then Israel had gone from the original plan where Israel retained Area C, the Arab Palestinians retained Area A and the sides were to negotiate where to divide Area B to now where there are demands for Israel to return to the borders from before the 1967 Six Day War and surrender the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem which has numerous Jewish holy sites and all of Area C which also holds valuable and precious Jewish holy sites and historic locations and there have been hints that Israel should also surrender a path to Gaza straight across the midlands of Israel cutting the Jewish State into halves and even calls for surrender of much of the Galilee and most of the Negev Desert. The aim is obvious, make Israel completely indefensible and then destroy it in quick order after every inch which could be negotiated had been taken through combination of threats and twisting world opinion, and that world opinion had been very generous to the Arab Palestinians as they are willing to sacrifice all of Israel as long as doing so comes with a promise to end all Islamic violence in the Western world and they are willing to take their word for that. The catch is they need Israel to agree and that point has yet to be reached, but give the world and the masters at giving concessions, also called the Knesset, time and we might get there. The Knesset actually approved the gifting of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority who within a short period lost it to Hamas who has since used it as a launching area of rockets into civilian areas of Israel and for tunneling into Israel with the intent of accomplishing raids resulting in kidnapped IDF or civilian Israelis. That was how the Gilad Shalit abduction and ransom was conducted. The world also seems to be fixated on Israel controlling their border with Hamas and Gaza despite tons of goods, food, medicine and other non-military goods transferred through the operative crossing daily where any government or NGO can have non-military goods transferred to Gaza simply by shipping their goods through the Ashdod, Israel port as Israel has legitimate need to assure that no military use goods are given over to Hamas, a recognized internationally as a terror origination. What is curious is these same nations have no problem with the complete closure of Gaza’s border with Egypt where nothing passes through in either direction legally for months and even years at a time. Israel has treated Gazans in Israeli hospitals including Hamas leader Haniyeh’s daughter treated in Israel. At another time, if you trust Israeli new reports, Hamas leader Haniyeh’s mother-in-law was also treated in an Israeli hospital. And according to Reuters in their last line almost as an excuse our mention of this but, one of Haniyeh’s granddaughters was treated in an Israeli hospital. But Israel is accused of committing genocide in Gaza. They keep using that word and I do not think it means what they think it means.

 

So, we have an intransigent enemy which will only be satisfied when they are walking on our graves as they would have long ago been destroyed as who needs a Jewish cemetery in the middle of an Arab Muslim Palestinian entity, which also happens to be dysfunctional and a failed entity incapable of supporting itself and completely dependent on foreign funding just to feed its people. And we have Israel, the only Jewish State in a sea of Arab and Muslim states despite the Arab Palestinian argument that there are no Muslim nations, which is true because their claim is there is not one such nation and they are correct, there are twenty-one Arab Muslim States and they desire to be the twenty-second. The world is willing to grant the Arabs Palestinians their demands as long as these demands are couched in polite terms and do not completely eradicate Israel, at least this is quite true in the United Nations General Assembly but thus far has not survived and passed in the Security Council where a veto threat always seems to succeed in preventing such a measure of passing and has even prevented such from being presented as their voting it down would set a bad precedent, or at least that has been the reason given by the Arab Palestinian leadership. Recent developments have shown that the veto protection has become something which some have decided can be used as a bludgeon to force Israeli leadership to toe a line drawn outside of Israel. This threat has been intimated but has yet to actually been publicly deployed though the possibility that it was threatened in private discussions between high officials in both nations has been breached as having been a possibility in many an editorial. Still, the fact that one of the candidates for the highest office did spend close to or possible more than a half hour berating the Prime Minister of Israel because he had the audacity to present the Israeli position regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 (the permanent members of the Security Council which are the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain and France and the plus one was Germany and, of course, Iran) which are claimed to permit Iran to continue parts of their nuclear research and increasingly over a decade be permitted greater range of research and development with their potentially producing nuclear weapon as soon as eight years according to some and definitively after the decade when all restrictions would end (the entire deal can be read here in a translation of the Russian copy into English and reformatted for easier reading). Another little tip of something not well known, Iran had been arming Hamas in Gaza and has also been trying to find inroads to arm and aid thus bringing into their influence the Palestinian Authority and the PLO.

 

So, what can be done about this untenable situation? How about a one state solution and the Arab Palestinians will be permitted to vote in their own local elections within Areas A and B while both Palestinians and Israelis will be permitted to reside in Area C but Arab Palestinians will not have voting rights as they will be considered resident aliens within Israel. Israel gets what was promised as their minimum border according to the original intents and promises under the Oslo Accords, as that at the very least should be recognized and granted. By the way, nobody other than Israel gets a vote on that decision. Arab Palestinians will have free travel throughout Israel with checkpoints initially and as the violence ends, the checkpoints will correspondingly end. Any Arab Palestinian desiring to take advantage of an opportunity to reside outside of Israeli influences can take a buyout offer which will include a generous price for their assets such as property, business and other recognized assets plus a flight to a neutral nation and then the flight to their chosen destination, they will need proof their destination will accept them, and an additional sum as determined as a resettlement assistance. Such an offer will be available for a set period, perhaps one year, and afterwards the remaining Arab Palestinians will be considered to be resident aliens with semiautonomous rights in Areas A and B. Any act of terrorism such as attacking people with no cause other than jihad or other terrorist acts will result in deportation either immediately or after serving any prison sentence handed down by the courts. Eventually, it may become possible to allow Arab Palestinians to apply for Israeli citizenship, but that will take time and the terrorist violence will need to have ceased before such can even be considered. The Arab Palestinians will retain the right to own property and to practice their religion freely. Initially the Madrassas will be monitored to assure they are not teaching jihad or Muslim supremacy doctrines and those crossing these lines will be warned once and if their transgressing the set limits continues they will be closed. The UNRWA schools and other public education will come under Israeli control and will retain any Arab Palestinian teachers and staff but will now teach an approved version of the Israeli basic education, especially when it comes to history, the sciences and Hebrew will be a required course so that when the time arrives that incorporating them if they choose into Israeli society as full citizens they will speak Hebrew which is an aim of the education system in Israel as well as the absorption programs for Jews making Aliyah. The Arab Palestinian leadership, especially the upper levels of Fatah and the PLO will necessarily be deported as there is no path which appears possible to incorporate them peaceably into this solution. They will not be granted any remuneration as they have stolen sufficient monies over the years to cover any relocation they choose even if it be a mansion along the Riviera. This may not be a perfect plan but what exists now is far worse for both the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel cannot be expected to continue this charade where their citizens are but targets which the Arab Palestinian school system teaches do not deserve to live and are a mortal enemy and are going to murder the Arab Palestinians unless they kill all the Israelis first. That has to end as it has ruined the lives of two generations of Arab Palestinians by filling them with hatred and nothing else to base their future upon. They are taught that as long as Israel exists their lives will be worthless and the Jews have stolen all opportunities and the only path to retrieve opportunity is to destroy Israel. That is not an acceptable situation and there is but one way to resolve that, end the Arab occupation and indoctrination on what is legally under all international laws Israeli soil. Publish the Levy Report and act on it as this situation is untenable for all involved and is destroying the Arab Palestinians’ futures by selling them destruction as their only option.

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.

His Freedom from Israeli Incarceration

 

 

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.
