We have been treated since the Israeli elections a serious case of pass the blame hot potato between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. This has been no different than the game which began with the proven mistake of all time, the Oslo Accords. The Oslo Accords were proven to be a complete façade when Ehud Olmert had his arm twisted to offer Arafat a deal which met all the expectations as Arafat had confidently requested from President Clinton and acquiesced offering ninety-five percent of the west Bank with East Jerusalem as their capital but to everyone’s’ surprise, Yasser Arafat bolted from the hearings without ever offering a counter offer or explanation. After returning to Ramallah he started the second Intifada which we eventually learned had been planned to follow the unsuccessful negotiations and had been in the plans for months. Ever since this teachable moment it should have become clear that no offer Israel could ever make would satisfy the Palestinian Arab desire for the destruction of Israel and nothing less. Still the only solution the world seems to believe is possible to end the eternal standoff is to demand that Israel offer to surrender more lands. This systemic inability to be capable to see beyond blaming Israel does not matter whether the President in the White House is Democrat or Republican, supposed friend or not, progressive or conservative; the resulting approach never changes and the demands for Israel to offer more remains the same, give and give even more and if that fails, then give even more.

 

Added to the difficulty, President Obama has bought the idea that it is Israel which stands in the way of peace, apparently the universal idea, but there are also the personality difficulties between the United States President and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Nothing could have brought this more into the spotlight and given off the most ominous of warnings than the efforts to derail the possibility that Netanyahu would be chosen to lead the new government seemingly directed from the White House, financed initially by the State Department and coordinated on the ground in Israel by Jeremy Bird who had recently run President Obama’s reelection grassroots campaign. With the reelection of Netanyahu the crisis has simply multiplied with the results for Israel becoming more dire with seemingly every news cycle. Initially there were reports that the United States may find it necessary to reevaluate their protection of Israel before the United Nations. The initial action in this direction was the announcement that the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council would be in Washington D.C. and unable to speak against the usual motions against Israel at the opening of the meetings. As it became known that the European governments were also not attending in protest the move by the United States simply appeared to be in line with the rest of the western world. The latest move has gone by relatively unnoticed but promises to explode once it is found out by Iran and other nations across the Middle East and North Africa.

 

Within the last month or so the Pentagon unclassified the entire documents from the Defense Department’s top-secret document detailing the Israeli nuclear program assessment from 1987. The release of these documents violates the longstanding agreement between the Israelis and the Pentagon is highly suspect given that it coincided with the timing of tensions spiraling out of control. This begs the question that if things have reached such a point, exactly where might the revenge against the Israeli public reach simply because they chose the strongest leadership being offered in their elections which is what one should expect from any nations, especially one facing the challenges and threats faced by Israel. Should Israel now expect that at least until the next administration is sworn into office that they no longer have even the remotest of hopes that they can rely on the United States? The Iran nuclear negotiations are even frightening the French who may be the last best hope of forcing a better deal, though it would be more likely that President Obama would sign an agreement without the French should they protest. Perhaps the best path forward for Israel is to broaden their reliance and strategic ties thus never again relying on one nation too deeply, especially any nation which might not only elect a leader who could potentially damage Israel critically but also reelect such a leader. Maybe it will take such mistreatment as appears to be the policies from the White House to realize that leaving all your eggs in one basket is simply betting too heavily that any nation can be so trusted.

One would have thought that the President would have considered the possibility that he might lose the game before initiating a game of political hardball with Prime Minister Netanyahu on Netanyahu’s home court. From all the hurtful reactions and threats that he be declared the winner and have his way or else one might also begin to question the sanity and ability to command the largest and most powerful military on the planet. For all intents and purposes, President Obama has truly lost his mind over losing an election in which he was personally present but not an actual candidate. Is it beyond the ability of the childlike man sitting in the most powerful position in the world to accept that the citizens of another nation might decide independent of his desires when electing their nation’s leader in times where that nation possibly faces some of the most daunting challenges to its existence in its ever so fragile history? If such a contingency was not considered as even possible, let alone probable, and thus comes as a total surprise and impossibility to comprehend or accept by President Obama, such that in reaction to this reality he now threatens Israel with annihilation, must be taken as evidence that the President may suffer from debilitating imbalances and is now a threat to not only Israel but the entire world going forward. The reaction to something that had to at some point have been contemplated, that playing hardball politics against a seasoned and proven adversary might not be decided as the President intended, was at best childish and unwarranted from such as the President of the United States. That despite sending the best of the best of the available political operatives, the ones who were to be credited with engineering President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, backed by millions of dollars and euros from the United States and European governments and still being unable to defeat Netanyahu had to be an option to the situation even if an unexpected option. That President Obama would take such a defeat so intimately personal is the surprise even beyond the failure of such an overbearing effort, but perhaps it was the overbearing nature of the effort which enabled its downfall. Simply described, me thinks the man doth protest too much.

 

What is necessary now is for somebody in the White House to fall on their sword but still attempt in doing so to explain to the President that sometimes in life one will eventually, no matter how seemingly impossible, actually come up against an opponent who will prevail even against one’s best of efforts. I realize that this may just be the first time that President Obama had somebody, or around four-million somebodies, go to the polls and refute his wise and sagely advice and instead vote for somebody whom President Obama finds beyond distasteful all the way to an adversarial pain in the derriere. But to then demand that despite the people of Israel in an open and free election choosing this person as their next Prime Minister that this person must now act as if the other side won and is dictating policies is beyond arrogant and just a bit pedantic, unwarranted and beneath the office which Obama holds. That President Obama apparently intends to punish Israel and use the full force and power of his office to do so is as frightening as it is unwarranted. The comments that the United States, meaning President Obama without consulting either the peoples or the Congress of the nation he presumably leads, is reassessing relations with Israel and intends to quite possibly force a solution upon Israel against the desires and will of the Israeli government and to do so unilaterally and by any and all means at the disposal of the President of the United States and his administration using international bodies and alliances which will knowingly place Israel and her population in dire peril of loss of life and nationhood is simply unacceptable use of the power of the President. Does anybody honestly place forcing Israel to completely surrender all points and be forced to not only surrender all points to an adversary whose stated intentions is the destruction of Israel and the murder of its predominant population and to do so unilaterally and without receiving any assurances or even any hint that such surrender of all points of negotiation produce an end to the violence against Israel from these Arab entities is more a declaration of war than a diplomatic seeking of a resolution. Does President Obama honestly intend to use force of arms to insist that Israel now comply with his standing threat to pull back unilaterally to the pre June 1967 war lines, also called the Green Line, without any guarantees or concessions from the Arab side by Mahmoud Abbas and then begin to negotiate the remaining issues such as dividing Jerusalem, final borders and other issues. This was what was presented to Netanyahu as a potential solution being considered by the White House. The unanswered question of what remains to be negotiated once Israel has ceded every inch of lands which are contested beyond Israel pulling up her roots and moving to Madagascar or wherever as the only remaining issue at such a point is how many Arab refugees will be shoved down Israel’s throat destroying any and every last vestige of the Jewish nature of Israel and one more time sending the Jewish people out into the Diaspora begging the permission of others to survive in a world which is closer to the next Holocaust than it is to accepting a Jewish state despite the actual, and hopefully not temporary, state for the Jewish people.

 

What is beyond belief is that President Obama honestly expects Prime Minister elect, he will not actually be the Prime Minister until he has been tasked with and successfully forming a coalition of minimally sixty-one Minister of the Knesset, to commit national suicide just so President Obama can claim another Nobel Peace Prize while claiming to have untied the Gordian Knot which has proven to be the Arab-Israeli peace. The problem with this solution is it resembles exactly the method used in legends by Alexander the Great when he cleaved the Gordian Knot in two claiming to have untied it though use of force was not considered a proper method and thus Alexander would eventually fail in his efforts to conquer all lands the knot represented. The use of force or threat of force will not be any more successful in untying the Gordian Knot of the modern world any more than Alexander’s skillful use of his strong sword succeeded in ancient times and will only make matters closer to all-out war. Israel will not go quietly into the gentleness that good night, but into her old age will she burn and rave at close of day and rage, rage against the dying of the light. Israel has waited her sons’ and daughters’ return to once again be blessed by this land and this land will remain our succor into eternity for as long as the sun does rise and the winds gently caress these lands will it remain our home to even our last dying effort will we hold to our rightful inheritance. The land is ours by right of promise from Heaven echoed rightfully by men of courage whose efforts and love of Zion engaged and brought forth the Balfour Declaration which was then universalized and made the law of the lands under the auspices of the League of Nations who adopted the Balfour Declaration word for precious word written into the San Remo Conference and ratified unanimously by the League of Nations and adopted by the United States by the Anglo-American Convention on Palestine in 1925 and confirmed in 1945 by Article 80 of the United Nations and has never been abrogated thus still is applicable under International Law. President Obama should be informed exactly what he is intending by his actions, that should he persist then his actions will be interpreted as a declaration of hostility and an attempt to abrogate standing International Law and also to have taken actions against a standing treaty which as such is the law of the land for the United States. The areas into which President Obama, in his obsessed mind, plans on treading is thin ice due to the roiling boil of the waters beneath. Should his plan include use of the United Nations Security Council, let him be warned that the United Nations is also bounded by the San Remo Conference and under its own Charter in Article 80 these promises were reaffirmed and ratified once again entering the conclusion of San Remo into the present framework of International Law. With such justification and the righteousness of our claims to this our lands will Israel stand against any efforts you may intend to sanction in your name. Remember that without Congressional actions the President of the United States may not declare war or deploy troops and doing so against treaties entered into by the United States and ratified by Congress that the President might once again find himself standing lonely on the battlefield of ideas without a clue. No, President Obama, you may not take your vengeance out on a nation just because they did not heed your presumably sagely advice and instead elected a leader who will serve Israel and Israeli interests the world be damned if that is what is required. And if this leader fails in that task, then we will elect a new leader more attuned to the needs of the day and sworn to protect that which is rightfully ours by treaty and, more importantly, by the will of Heaven. Would you like to see our deed? Well, it can be found in Genesis where Abraham was promised all the lands where it states in “Genesis 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Is that easy enough because if not there is more even to include the treaties of man which promise the same and more, but you already are knowledgeable of such things being the most able man on earth. After all, according to Patrick Gaspard, your first White House political director, in an interview with The New Yorker in November 2008, he quoted you having stated, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” With minimal extrapolation we can guess you exceed at all things mortal and border on the realm of the immortal, still, Israel will not be pushed. We are a stiff-necked people and even more-so when our own beloved Zion is up for presumptive discussions. Do not doubt that for a moment, simply do not transgress there and think real hard as to whether such threats and actions will be worth the price you will pay when all is said and done. Just go repair Syria, ISIS, Libya, Yemen and the other problems which cry so much louder for your attentions, but those would require heavy lifting and you see Israel as an easy target, the low hanging fruit but you are mistaken, very mistaken. One would have thought you might have taken the hint from the election, leave well enough as is and go tackle some pressing problem and leave us to deal with our situations. Bye-bye.

Enough With the Doubts and Pressing Questions

 

One would think that with the elections over in Israel and the prolonged bartering being mostly ignored as usual until things appear to gel into something more resembling a coalition than a fish market on a Friday afternoon, that things would have smoothed over and present a more peaceful field. Not so here in the Middle East where nobody ever wants to find answers to problems as doing so only brings on even more problems and these replacements are always far more dire. The best example is the idea of dividing some of the lands liberated from Jordan in June of 1967 in order to form an Arab state, the twenty-second one if my memory and counting serves me correctly. After the Six Day War the world expected and had even mostly accepted that Israel would retain the Golan Heights and all of Judea and Samaria and those who really could not bring themselves to live in a Jewish run nation would need to resettle elsewhere, possibly even wherever they had fled to escaping what they believed would be wholesale slaughter of Arabs by the IDF; this was only one of the falsehoods of the time and may not have been the most dire and threatening. The IDF did not engage in slaughtering Arabs and was even written about later in some advanced studies undergraduate in their thesis that the <a href=http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/analysis/guilty-by-reason-of-innocence-new-insanity-from-israels-academic-leftists-2/2013/06/28/ target=blank>Israeli Defense Force soldiers are racists</a> and the proof was that after the Six Day War the IDF did not engage in raping the Arab women. This student claimed that the reason was not that the IDF was a civilized and merciful to those who posed the Jews and Israel no threat but because and solely because the soldiers did not consider the Arab women to be human beings.

 

The idea that Israel would retain the Golan Heights, Judea, Samaria and potentially Gaza continued alongside the argument that Egypt may never get any part of the Sinai Peninsula returned either. Peace came between Egypt and Israel, slightly frozen but peace just the same, and Israel returned not only all of the Sinai Peninsula but offered Gaza as well; the Egyptians refused to claim Gaza and insisted Israel retain Gaza. Later, when peace was made with Jordan Israel even offered to return the lands Jordan had occupied illegally but Jordan refused. These signs of valuing peace were taken as signs that Israel was weak and afraid which eventually led to the Oslo Accords in which the idea of an Arab state was presented. The areas of Judea and Samaria were divided into three partitions, one would remain as the core of the Arab state and one would remain as annexed by Israel. The Israeli areas included all of Jerusalem and approximately three-fourths of Judea and Samaria and the Arab state all of Gaza and the remainder of Judea and Samaria. The middle area was the contested area which was to be determined through negotiations and the so-called refugees were to be absorbed by the Arab state being formed along with the countries who held the refugees in camps refusing to allow them to integrate into their society and even forbidding them almost any human rights; but this was acceptable by the world at large.

 

Now the debate has come to how well armed and what size army will the Arab state be permitted and what amount of crew served weapons and rockets or missiles they may keep in their armories. It almost seems that the next demands will be to claim the Negev and the Galilee leaving the Jewish state with the Tel Aviv metropolitan areas, and a truncated metropolitan area at that. This should explain why Israel has decided that enough talk of staging the death of the Jewish state through negotiations, world pressures and demands or any other means with an emphasis on nuclear weapons delivered from the newly nuclear state of Iran as a present from the P5+1 nations and their weakness and perfidy. The fact that there is now a rumored threat that the White House is fed up with Israeli existence and their demands to be respected and have International Law enforced including little inconveniences such as Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and the San Remo Conference treaty and all that entails, then we can talk further.

 

One last thing, the point being made by Netanyahu when he explained that the Arab Party supporters were showing up at the polls in large numbers was reporting about the combined list which included three Arab parties and a Communist party all of whom were being brought to the polls even if they had not even given voting even the most casual of thoughts as the V15 “volunteers” under the direction of the brain trust from the United States operating on a State Department grant were going house to house and collecting people who had not shown up to vote by noon and were transporting them to the polling stations so it was a call for such mass voting to be matched, no more and thankfully no less. Had the White House not inserted their proxy to unofficially campaign against the current government of Israel and the status quo, this was their stated goal so as to get around Israeli campaign laws, and thus the slogan was, “Anybody but Bibi!” Well, the status quo has been corrected so they got half of what they desired, but as far as anybody but Bibi; well, not so much. How about an even stronger and bolder Bibi who is fully cognizant that he was elected to tell certain overbearing entities to back off and be careful how you tread on your way out the door; oh, and don’t let the door, well, you know. See ya in a while when anybody but Obummer is in the White House.
