And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel

 

While speaking to a special session of the Human Rights Council this past week, Wednesday, in Geneva, while Abbas requested the United Nations, the Security Council in particular as only they can provide what he is demanding of late, that the Human Rights Council demand and fully back his demand for international forces be sent to protect any Arabs, Palestinian or Israeli, from being prevented by police, Border Patrols, Israeli Defense Forces or Israeli citizens interfering in any way their attempts to murder freely Israeli citizens. Understand that these attacks may be targeting Jews but there is a statistical chance of one in four that the target attacked will be other than Jewish and a twenty percent chance of their target being a fellow Arab. Abbas’s speech had a number of goodies which we will post outtake pictures of the selected frames for ease of reading and include the entire video at the bottom for the less patient who are also fast readers, though one need not be too fast a reader I have been told.

What is it that makes Abbas so irresistible that whenever and to whomever he desires to speak to, most especially United Nations, attached NGOs, and other Agencies instantly upon an Abbas request for special sessions are instantly coordinated? The next thing required to interpret Abbas’s brief brush with the truth is to do some rudimentary mathematics, a simple case of subtractions before delving into a little history.

 

 

Abbas United Nations Math which takes year 2015 subtract his desired 67 years erasing history to 1948 before Israel founded

This has been the never to be stated aim of the entire terror war from even before 1948 which was the year in which Israel was founded on May 15th, from even before the riots instigated and called for by the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al Hussein who made calls for the riots on Arab radio stations declaring that the Jews were desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque and were also preparing to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque despite there being no evidence or potential truth to his claims. These broadcasts called for pogroms against the Jews of Jerusalem and Hevron as well as numerous places where the violence was somewhat muted but all in all the acts of rioting close to one-hundred-fifty Jews were murdered. In the main areas where any intervention might have ended the violence the British policemen did not open fire fearing that if they had shot into the Arab crowd, the mob would have turned their anger on the police. There will be those who may claim this source is tainted due to its presumed slant but we can attest that we have heard that it may have been a single shot from a British Officer which scattered the Arab rioters which was fired due to some of the Arab rioters coming uncomfortably close to the British section of troops who stood and simply witnessed the pogrom without any concern. The source Think-Israel tells a slightly different story themselves quoting with regard to Mr. Cafferata, both the Memorial Book and the testimony of the survivors record, with damning unanimity, that Mr. Cafferata did nothing for two hours. The Memorial book records: “From our knowledge, we say with certainty that it would have sufficed to issue a warning, or to fire some shots into the air, and the crowd would have scattered. It was only after there had been sufficient butchery, plunder and rape, and the pogromists were about to attack an English officer, that some shots were fired, and the mob dispersed at once.”

 

The 1929 rioting had been preceded by rioting in Jaffa in 1921 and on and off rioting and assaults since the first Jewish settlers arrived in Palestine in 1882 from Russia and which were also followed by further rioting incited in much the same manner in 1933, as well as consistently from 1936 through 1939 across the different places in what would eventually become Israel for one evening before the assault on Israel the next morning by seven Arab armies crossing the borders with Lebanon in the north, Syria the Golan Heights in the northeast, Egypt in the South, and Saudi Arabia and Yemen from the southeast and Iraq and Jordan from the east. Just in case anybody ever doubted what the actual real borders of Israel were as when she declared her independence, allow me to repeat without naming the armies which poured over them in the hopes of enjoying what was to be an easy genocidal murder of every last Jews but somebody forgot to tell the Israelis, they were Lebanon in the north, the center line of the Golan Heights in the northeast, the Jordan River to the east and a line extending from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea as if the Jordan River had continued that far as it most likely did a long time ago and the Negev Sinai border in the South with the Mediterranean Sea to the West. This means that Israel originally included the presumed ‘occupied lands’ referred to as Gaza and West Bank.

 

Well, as promised, the video itself for your viewing pleasure followed by some concluding remarks.

 

 

 

 

There are a fair number of people around this world of ours who are willing to grab ahold of any claim against Israel and run it into the ground and hopefully doing the same to Israel. Their blood lust to have Israel torn asunder, destroyed and further not all that likely to lose a moment’s sleep if every Jews were slaughtered in the process of Israel’s destruction. They will claim they have nothing against the Jews, only with Israeli policies and decisions and the violence they use to enforce their laws and protect the life of all Israelis, including the twenty percent who are Arabs and the other five percent who range from Bahá’í Faith to Hindus and from Buddhists to Shinto, from Christians to Mennonites and Jews to Zoroastrians and lastly also Muslims (all of which are growing populations in Israel and often Israel is the sole nation with growing populations as the rest of the nations in MENA have dwindling populations of all but for Islam for various reasons as they are all growing and enjoying the freedom of religion in Israel). These same people appear not to have anywhere near the same level of concern and critical spite for Syria, Islamic State, Libya, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan Nigeria, Cameroon, Ukraine, Myanmar, Mexico and numerous other places in the world; they just hold a special animus against Israel, the sole nation of the Jews. Many of these haters of Israel will claim they are not anti-Semites but merely anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Settlers who just happen to be Jews yet if asked if they would be willing and openly accepting to have a couple of million Jews emigrate to their country and they will suggest that perhaps a smaller amount, the percentage equal to their population against the rest of the world, crowding, you know, there is such limited space here and other reasons. Some might even use that all time favorite that the Jews would not be happy here and they would rather go elsewhere. There are claims that the Jews need to return to Germany, Russia, Poland and the other European nations and the United States, you know, where they came from, but that ignores close to half the Jewish population. The Jews who came to Israel when they were expelled, chased, nudged or elbowed out of their homes and businesses often permitted one or two suitcases per family or person depending on the nation and had their bags checked and any jewelry, monies or other items determined valuable like art or coin collections, were removed and not permitted to leave the country across MENA (Middle East and North Africa) most of which ended in Israel, all over eight-hundred-thousand plus of them over the decade that followed 1948 and they now make up close to half of Israel’s Jewish population. What are the chances that these Arab nations would accept them back and not simply exterminate them upon arrival and quite likely with the aircraft they arrived in? There is nowhere for the six and a half million Jews of Israel to go and there are about to be an entirely new influx of Jews from the Ukraine, Europe, and soon even the United States, Australia and the remainder of the Anglosphere. Israel with her original eastern border of the Jordan River straight down to the Red Sea as was promised by the British and that agreement signed onto by almost all of the Western World and even Japan and King Faisal. How much more is required to permit the Jews to have their nation returned, and not even the entirety of their ancestral home which crossed to over both sides of the Jordan once reached to the Litani River, and reached Euphrates River after the conquests of King David and the rule and management of King Solomon as depicted in the left most image below.

The right hand picture above depicted the aboriginal boundaries of the Jewish State which reached the Litani River to the North, straddled both sides of the majority of the Jordan River basin and surrounding lands and continued south crossing beyond today’s border into what today is referred to as the Sinai Peninsula. Considering the above pictures which defines the different states of existence of the Jewish State in its aboriginal state and the lands according to some decisions on aboriginal peoples and their rights to their former lands would allow for an enlargement of the boundaries Israel would be happy to see returned such that Israel return to her original lands the moment before the Arab war of annihilation which Israel survived but as she lost bordering on one-third of her land mass she cannot be claimed to have won, just merely survived.

On Thursday a group of representatives of Abbas’s Fatah Party met in Beirut with Khaled Mashaal along with other representatives from Hamas in both Gaza and Judea and Samaria and discussed ways to expand the Stabbing Intifada against Israel. Mahmoud Abbas, whether he was present at this meeting or not, has been stoking the Stabbing Intifada from day one with his demands that Arab Palestinians do whatever might be necessary including rioting, excessive violence even against law enforcement, screaming and assaulting any Jews who decide to brave the stinging insults and screaming shrillness of outrageous women of the Ribat swarming and swearing with accompanied ululating intending to intimidate and at the least breaking any hope of a pleasurable experience and have in the past two months even assaulted with their assaults classes of elementary school children on class trips and families who were attempting on making their annual Jewish New Year’s visit to the most holy site for all Jerusalem with their children with some very young children who may have nightmares due to the treatment thrown at their family with the viciousness of intent filled with hatreds. Then there have been the stabbings, vehicular ramming attacks, stone attacks, shootings, muggings, firebombings and full on mass attacks against security forces on the Temple Mount often for days on end using various weapons including steel rods, bats, Molotov cocktails, rocks, cinder blocks, and usage of their holy al-Aqsa Mosque as a base of operations, weapons armory, planning area, fortress and turning the insides into a corrupted and dishonored place which had been subjected to insults and disregard beyond imagination if the pictures below had not been made to witness the desecrations at the hands of the Arabs themselves.

These images above reflect the disregard shown the al-Aqsa Mosque by Arab Palestinians, members of Fatah, the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA), the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and lastly the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades who take their name from the very place they treat without any sense of reverence or respect. With such treatment by Muslims to their own holy site it is little wonder how they can be equally cavalier and uncaring when it comes to holy sites, institutions and structures of other religions for which they have always shown nothing short of scorn, defamations, desecrations, and transmogrification into an Islamic shrine replacing the religious structures of other faiths within the lands they conquer or simply destroying the religious buildings, shrines and holy sites all as part of their intention of replacing all religions and forcing all to convert or die, some claim except for Jews who will be given no choice and no quarter, just a path resulting in death. Their absorbing other faiths’ religious sites was just made evident at the special session of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) where they granted the PA request that the Cave of the Patriarchs and Kever Rachel (Rachel’s Tomb) be made World Heritage Sites assigned to the PA and registered as Mosques. The Cave of the Patriarchs has the bodies entombed there of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac and Leah of which only Abraham had any historic place in Islam while all of these are patriarchal forefathers of Judaism and as such also Christianity and Ruth has only a Jewish, thus Christian, history and was in no manner related in any way to Islam but they are now as far as the United nations are concerned Islamic sites entrusted to the PA for their repairs and for Islamic prayer solely if the PA should decide to such order using this decision as their authorization. This recent decision reveals the complete insensitivity and lack of integrity of the United Nations (UN) and the complete lack of a moral compass of both the PA and the UN when it comes to recognizing other religious rights and histories and determining such to be secondary to the usurpation of all religious sites and institutions by Islam as if the UN has decided that the desires, claims and rights of Islam supercede all other religions and especially Judaism. This should come as no surprise as the UN General Assembly has denounced Israel even going so far as to declare that Zionism, the desire of Jews to return to live in their ancestral homelands, was actually a form of racism and there have been consideration in the past which were only tabled as they would never have passed without the use of veto powers in the Security Council, though they have received passage as motions of intent and demanding the Security Council debate the motion and, as noted, only withdrawn when the United States and at times others to veto or when unable to gather sufficient votes for passage, the move to withdraw and revoke General Assembly 181 in as far as it recognized the right for a Jewish State to be formed within the remaining lands of the British Mandate which lay between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea which represented a mere twenty-two percent of the original British Mandate after the lands west of the river were stripped away from the lands for the Jewish State to form an Arab Palestinian State of what is now known as Jordan. When the British and the Zionist Congress came to an agreement to allow for the formation of Jordan (Transjordan at that time in 1922) the British swore that the remaining lands west of the river were to be sacrosanct and reserved solely for the formation of a Jewish State, something they appear to have decided was no longer in their interest as they supported partitioning the lands and abrogating their sworn agreements with the Zionist Congress and the Jewish People. The actual planned divide which the two parties came to an agreement over is pictured below.

Meanwhile, Abbas has also visited the UN requesting that international troops be sent to protect the Arabs when they are assaulting Jews and other Israeli citizens with homicidal rage and intents from being arrested or when they attack police when demanded to drop their weapons or when they initially attack IDF or law enforcement personnel and especially once they have murdered or injured victims be they soldiers, police or innocent civilians and when they refuse to halt and continue their assaults and they are shot, Abbas is demanding international forces to interfere with Israeli law enforcement preventing them from performing their responsibilities to the Israeli public. Perhaps a picture will save everyone reading a thousand words and might give a better idea of the rocks being hurled at IDF soldiers, vehicles on the highways and byways, or thrown at any target which presents itself as a target of opportunity.

The attacks will continue though much of the media coverage will slowly wane as the stabbings take on the seeming normalness as reporting on the numerous stabbing day in and day out will never clear the editors’ desks unless taking a greater number of lives in a single day or short number of days. The stabbings are already becoming the new normal which is why the meeting between Fatah members and members including one of the top officials from Hamas in Beirut. Hamas had been demanding that the attacks take on a more deadly venue calling for homicidal suicide bombers and for the knife wielders to poison their blades so as to make them more lethal and to not allow for victims to reach the hospitals in time. The truth is that the meeting in the Lebanese Capital could have also included Hezballah who hopefully have more than they can handle on their plates already with the war in Syria, units of their members in Yemen assisting the Houthis along with the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) and additional units in Iraq assisting with the war on the Islamic State and any other Sunnis they may encounter. The one potential result of the meeting between Fatah representing the PA and Hamas whose influence includes Islamic Jihad might prove to be rockets fired from out of Gaza though Hamas did claim that such would be counterproductive as it might take away from the emphasis on the stabbing, rock throwing, firebombing, vehicular assaulting, shooting, rioting and other attacks all being part of the Third or Stabbing Intifada. After all, Hamas would never desire to overshadow Fatah and prove to be the true representatives who are fighting against the Zionist entity after all, would they? Well, actually we all know that any agreement between Fatah and the PA with Hamas and Islamic Jihad would be lucky if the ink from any signatures, as if they would ever be so formal, would have the time to dry before one side or the other broke with whatever was agreed upon. These groups are not exactly known for their ability to keep their word whether it be with the Israelis or each other. Time will tell and as long as Israel is suffering at least a half dozen or more, often over a dozen knife wielding attacks a day, then we will likely include references and reports on the worst of the assaults.

 

When the day arrives that the Israeli leadership performs their duty and takes the required steps to assure the safety of the people, that will be a banner day which will allow great joys here at BTC but until then we will suggest they wake-up and smell the horrific state of affairs all because they thought that by giving away lands which according to all International Laws and all that is holy is rightfully assigned to the Jewish People into their care and stewardship as the lands belong to Hashem and we are but his servants who will be granted wellbeing for as long as we adhere to Torah and keep our covenant which we agreed to do at Mount Sinai when after Hashem brought us, including myself and every Jew alive today, out from bondage in Egypt and before Hashem even gave us a single law while we trembled at the foot of that holy mountain we said as if in one great and loud voice, “All that the Lord spoke we will do and we will hear” (יֹּאמְרוּ כֹּל אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהֹוָה נַעֲשֶׂה וְנִשְׁמָע). Perhaps the time has come to listen for what has in times past been a booming voice which made the mountains tremble, the seas roil and the sky split in two is not more often a quiet voice which can only be heard by quietly listening and concentrating very hard, perhaps Israeli leaders need some quiet time to pray and listen, especially listen and as our forefathers swore, listen and obey and then wait for the worlds which will follow from Hashem as He answers those who honestly call upon Him and honestly desire His guidance, Baruch Hashem.

Israel Versus the Universe; Almost

 

When one researches the various campaigns against Israel, violent attacks against Israelis, political assaults on Israel, hearings over offensive acts by Israel, and court filings of wrong-doings by Israel are sufficient in quantity that it certainly feels like it is not just Earth, our solar system, the Milky Way are against Israel but actually as if the entire universe, the entirety of the results from the Big Bang (represented below because we like this picture) lining up against Israel such that almost nothing takes the side of Israel except the One that counts for more than everything else, Hashem who works in mysterious and unknown ways which sometimes can be frustrating for Israel and Israelis. One article is completely beyond our ability to research in under a decade and more than anybody would care to read through on their lunch break or wherever our friends read BTC. So we will look at some of the reactions from around the planet concerning the current Third Intifada and the near constant violence being perpetrated against innocent civilians mostly with the few rare attacks on police, IDF and Border Police. The reactions from around the world have been nothing if not a preposterous exercise in blaming the victims and demands on victims to be more passive in their own defenses. Perhaps some examples from the recent past are in order.

One of the most insidious of attacks has come from a tag team effort with the Arab Palestinian Authority with their facilitators at UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). It was not enough for UNESCO to recognize a state of Palestine granting it statehood despite being unable to define the boundaries and against the very charter which defines what is necessary for UNESCO to recognize a state, but they did not wish to be left out of the rush last year’s race by NGOs and other organizations to recognize a state of Palestine in whatever borders it eventually will be defined with, what a deal. They honestly recognized an amorphous entity with no defines or permanent border or even to have a singular defined government over both the areas under the PA and the only place which is defined with a border is Gaza ruled by Hamas, so which one did UNESCO recognize? This year the PA was backed by the six Arab members; Algeria, Egypt, Kuwait, Morocco, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates, which initially attempted to include the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem including so specifically that it was actually stated, the Western Wall and the Kotel Plaza which the PA claimed Israel was working to destroy the wall in order to assault the Temple Mount and destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. At least this demand was turned down by UNESCO with their Director-General Irina Bokova who berated the PA representatives directing them to remove this preposterous claim of the Western Wall and Kotel to be a Muslim Holy Site as absurd. Still, UNESCO did decide in a vote of twenty-six in favor, six voted against, and twenty-five abstentions where United States, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Estonia being the only nations resisting this Islamic assault on Jewish historic and ancient holy sites which predate Islam by not just a mere few centuries but by a thousand years plus, but why should a millennium plus stand in the way of allowing another usurping of other religious holy sites by the usurpers and destroyers of all things holy to other religions and especially those far more ancient than Islam itself. We all remember the Taliban and the desecrations and destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan (pictured below).

This is not the first time around the mulberry bush and making inventive and preposterous claims permitted by UNESCO for the PA as they have made such decisions before. As we see in this video below, where Mahmoud Abbas made the claim that not only was the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount an Islamic holy site but that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is also an Islamic holy site, and the PA has already made requests with the backing from Jordan to make the Church of the Nativity also as an Islamic holy site under their management and protection. Islam has had a history of conversions of other religious holy sites and making them instead Islamic holy sites with the most famous the defiling of the Hagia Sophia being converted into a Mosque after the fall of Constantinople (pictured below). This will become a standard practice across Europe as churches and especially cathedrals are sold to Islamic groups who will convert them into mosques.

But UNESCO was not the only United Nations sanctioned action taken concerning Israel this past week. Showing great consternation and sympathy for the victims of the violence which has shaken Israel for the past few months and continuing to escalate each week worse than the previous to the point that each day is not measurably worse than the previous day and soon it may be said of each hour as Hamas has called for their operatives and forces in Judea and Samaria and anywhere else there are those who support their struggle against the Jew to strike the Jew and conduct suicidal homicide bombings across all of Israel and into the settlements and Hamas also challenged the forces from Fatah and the PA to also take up this challenge. On a mission to curb the escalating violence, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon made a surprise visit to discuss the situation with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and also spoke with opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog who echoed much of the message of the Prime Minister, then visited PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and after discussed the situation and possible ways to disarm the situation before it spiraled out of control. Before continuing further on Ban Ki-moon’s surprise visit, allow us to congratulate his denunciation of the PA violence and desecration committed against Joseph’s Tomb last Friday where he commented, This “reprehensible act is yet another example of the escalating violence in the region, threatening to further inflame sensitivities owing to the religious significance of Joseph’s Tomb.”

But when it comes to the third Intifada which has been afflicting Israelis across all of Israel with stabbings, shootings, car attacks running down Jews, rock throwing, firebombing and gang assaults; all the Secretary General could manage was to demand that both sides step back from the abyss and refrain from taking the violence even further and taking the situation beyond the cusp and into a full scale war. His blame was carefully aimed at both sides making sure not to place blame on either side and using the pretense of equal culpability. His warnings will fall on deaf ears on the PA and Fatah side of the equation possibly because the violence has come close to taking on a life of its own and with the slightest further escalation may become something beyond the ability for Chairman Abbas to curtail and bring to an end. Meanwhile, on the Israeli side the only meaning we could take from the demand that Israel and Israelis need to be less vigilant at warding off these attacks on persons and be more understanding and simply allow such attacks to take place without any consequence or resistance or use of force for protection and just take it and thus end the cycle of violence. Having been through any number of Arab conflagrations we have realized that taking such a passive approach will only be taken as a sign of weakness and thus encourage even greater carnage and the only response which has any potential to end the onslaught is the use of overt force, the use of disproportional force as force, overwhelming force is the only thing which will deter further attacks by the PA and their terror proxies. But we do not expect Ban Ki-moon to understand such things despite how he may feel, as he is such a man of peace and experience and so all-knowing. We can only hope his feelings, assuming he has such, will not be bruised by our not heeding his sagely advice.

 

Finally we get to the pensive one, to United States Secretary of State John F (for nothing) Kerry who also had some bordering on ridiculous advice for Israel and her citizens. Perhaps the best way to describe Secretary Kerry’s sagely advice would be to allow his words to stand on their own merit or lack thereof. Kerry stated, “We continue to urge everybody to exercise restraint and restrain from any kind of self-help in terms of the violence, and Israel has every right in the world to protect its citizens, as it has been, from random acts of violence. But in my conversations with the prime minister, as well as with King Abdullah and the foreign minister of Jordan, they have expressed the desire to try to see this process be able to find a way of making certain that everybody is clear about what is happening with respect to the Temple Mount.” Additionally, Secretary Kerry spoke of desires with these words, “Israel has made it clear to me that they do not intend to and have not changed the status quo, and I think it’s important for me to meet with the prime minister and talk about the road ahead.” But wait, there’s more, “Security and diplomacy go hand in hand. There is not a time for one and then the other; really there is an importance to both. We want to see calm restored and we want to see the violence stop. And I think everybody in Israel and in the region would like to see both of those things happen.” And there were more words of unimaginable wisdom such as “We have to stop the incitement; we have to stop the violence. I believe people want this to de-escalate.” And the fun just does not stop as John Kerry went onward with claims that the conversations he was having would be “very important to settle on the steps that can be taken beyond the condemnation and beyond the rhetoric” and I bet he was implying ending the violence which he claimed both sides for fomenting and escalating and demanding that both sides stop with the incitement and that both sides needed to exercise calm and not allow the actions of the other side drive further violence on either side. We all hope that the United States Secretary of State does not mean as other State Department spokespeople have inferred that the violence needs to be addressed by the Israeli government who needs to break the cycle of violence and take the initiative for ending the violence. This has been the State Department swan song whenever violence breaks out between terrorists and Israeli civilians on the streets and in restaurants and even rabbis at morning prayers being shot and hacked to death and it is always Israel must take the onus for ending the violence. They are demanding that the Jew return to being the passive Jew that they so loved before the founding of Israel and the surprising survival of the tiny land nestled in the midst of a nice little neighborhood where the rest of the world around Israel wishes us dead.

Their message is not even craftily hidden as it is obvious that the State department has one aim whenever Jews are being victimized. They desire a return to when the Jew lived scattered throughout Europe, North Africa, Asia, and the Middle East and were at the mercy of the rulers as they had no homeland of their own. They lived at peace only by the desires and whims of their protectors, protectors who invariably turned on their Jews when the need changed or there was any reason to find the perfect scapegoats. Be it the Spanish Inquisition, the Purification of France, the plague across Europe which did not kill as many Jews due to Jewish laws of cleanliness making them less susceptible, the whims of Caliphs and Imams, the ridding of the British Isles of the Jew scourge, the purifying of Germany of their Catholics when Martin Luther began the Protestant reformation which also called for removing the Jews by whatever means was convenient which did not exclude murdering them, the Czarist Pogroms followed soon thereafter by the Communists pogroms where the Jews were defined as an unwanted blight on the worker’s revolution despite many having been communists themselves who fought and died for the communists during the revolution just as they had died elsewhere no matter how accepted they had thought they were or how safe they had felt. Even one of the leaders, Trotsky, was a Jew and despite his being one of the most high party officials, this only got him an ax in his head when he was assassinated in his hiding place in Mexico plus any number of events of which the most horrid of them all were the wars over the Holy Lands and, in particular, Jerusalem where when the Crusaders swept through they murdered the Muslims and often the Jews for good measure and when the Islamic forces swept through next, they murdered the Christians and often the Jews for good measure. The Jews were never eradicated and often had disappeared as the scenario became well understood; both sides were none too pleased with a Jewish presence. These were the good old days when Jews were weak and without any power and were vulnerable to any change in the way the political winds blew. There have been claims that in order to escape the Spanish Inquisition a Jew stowed away on one of Columbus’s ships and when the time came to send somebody to talk with the natives, this Jewish stowaway was sent as he was considered the most expendable and the rest is history, not the part where the first member of the Columbus crew to step on the new lands was a Jewish stowaway as that has been placed in amongst the other trivial realities which history preferred to rewrite with a more bold and favorable light shining on their heroic figures who often were more prudent than heroic. We will not return to being the timid Jew as that did not serve us well and we do learn from history and we also know our Bible which has told of this return which was revealed to Moses, to Abraham, to Isaiah and has now come full circle and we are home and we will protect our beloved land from every and anyone who dares to attempt to take it from us or us from our lands. The official words from Prime Minister Netanyahu may tell of sharing our land with those who would murder us in our beds as they did the Fogel family, in our vehicles as was Alexander Levlovitz erev Rosh Hashanah, at our workplace as was Netanel Arami whose Arab co-workers cut his safety lines on the construction site they all worked and in the streets as they are currently doing in what has been identified as the Third Intifada and we will continue to protect ourselves be it by preventing further harm when in the midst of an attack to preferable before any harm is done between the drawing of the weapon, the aiming of a careening vehicle into a bus stop, charging a crowded area with a knife or cleaver or any other assault with intent to do harm and murder of any Israeli as we are not Dhimmi and never will we be Dhimmi nor will we ever bow before Allah or Muhammad as we worship Hashem, the G0d of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and not the god of Abraham Ishmael and Muhammad who took a wrong turn somewhere between the patriarch and the generations which followed.
