A Rant from One Joyous Jew in Israel

 

Back in my youth I would get rolling eyes, good and hearty laughs, challenges to my sincerity and general disbelief when I told my Jewish and other friends that one day I would retire in Israel. Well, not only did I make good on my words, I found an affordable place five blocks from the Mediterranean Sea in Nahariya in northwestern Israel and the western end of the Galilee. One of my friends from before grade school through high school visited my parents and asked as to my whereabouts as most of my high school graduating class scattered to all corners of every state in the nation almost all losing touch except for rare crossings in our travels. When my parents informed him that I had moved to Israel, their quote of his reaction was interesting. They told me he laughed while getting out the words of disbelief stating, “My G0d, he actually did it. He had told us back in grade school and on that he would retire in Israel and he actually went and did it.” Similar reactions have been stated by people who throughout my life were told my intention. I was raised as a reform Jew in a liberal area just outside of Washington D.C. in a neighborhood which it turned out would fall just inside the Capital Beltway. Yes, we lived as part of the inside the Beltway crowd but not until we were fourteen and the roadway was opened. I was actually at the opening just across the county line over in Prince Georges County and made the cover of the Washington Star but somehow the Washington Post used a picture which I managed to miss. I tell people this because they knew I would eventually become a conservative Constitutionalist and a Zionist when it came to Israel. None of my friends, to the best of my knowledge, did more than maybe visit Israel for a short vacation or funded trip made possible by one of the many organizations which sponsor such trips in hopes that they will spark good responses. Unfortunately many of these planned trips are hijacked by post-Zionists which would be better described as anti-Zionist and some even pro-Palestinian Arab. At some point some of these visitors are told by guides that Israeli Jews could live in an Israel as a minority under Muslim rule. They use this introduction to claim that millions of Arabs claiming to be refugees or their progeny and thus entitled to live within Israel would cause little if any problems. They ignore that these refugees are raised such that their entire existence is for the destruction of Israel through population inundation. Allowing for a Muslim majority in Israel would force the Jews to leave, or if not that, then remove the Jews using some other means of final solution.

 

There are things which are presumably not permitted be stated when discussing Israel Arab conflict. The biggest lie is that the Israel Arab conflict is between the Israeli Goliath against the Arab Palestinian David ignoring the fact that as many as twenty Arab governments and numerous other Muslim governments all demand that the Jewish State be returned in its entirety to Islamic rule and all the Jews made to perish and that is the reality which must never be spoken. The truth of this conflict is easily understood when looking at a map of the nations whose populations predominantly desire the eradication of Israel (see map below). This includes even Egypt, which recognized Israel when making peace under the brave guidance of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat who signed a peace with Menachem Begin, the Israeli Prime Minister, in 1979 and President Sadat then paid with his life as he was assassinated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood using their members from a military unit during a parade on October 6, 1981 as reported by the New York Times. The population of Egypt by over four to one favors Egypt breaking the treaty and attacking and destroying Israel. As far as the Egyptian population has ever heard in reports and been taught in their schools, the Egyptian military has defeated Israel in each of the three wars, 1956, 1967 and 1973, despite the reality being the opposite. Those who fought in these wars and know the reality are forbidden from speaking of these defeats under threat of death.

There are many other truths which shall never be mentioned. The truth is that the leadership of the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) have rejected the two state solution and will only accept a single Muslim Arab state completely devoid of any Jews. There is no difference between the desired end between the PLO, Fatah, the PA, Islamic Jihad and Hamas. The various terrorist groups (the ones listed in the last sentence and more) are supported by the Muslim Brotherhood (the same parent group for al-Qaeda), Saudi Arabia, Iran and other radical groups both Sunni and Shiite. The monies donated by the United Nations, UNRWA, the European Union, various European governments, the United States and near countless NGOs are often diverted to terrorist usage including purchasing explosives, bomb and rocket making systems and supplies, tunnels, and payments well above the average wage for terrorists in Israeli prisons, the families of terrorists who died such as suicide bombers and others who continued attacking until killed in the commission of their attack with these salaries commensurate with the numbers of Israelis they murdered. The PA headed by Mahmoud Abbas and internationally reputed to be Israel’s best hope for peace and the greatest hope for establishing a two state solution has approved and even attended official events naming schools, roads, parks, playgrounds and other public institutions and landmarks after terrorists who are revered and proposed as the pinnacle of Arab society and the best possible people for the youth to emulate and strive to be their equals in the dealing of death to Israelis. When touting murdering Israelis there is often additional mention of murdering Jews and it is made evident that these Jews intended to include all Jews anywhere in the world. Should one take one hour a week in two or three short periods watching translations of PA spokespeople, leadership and the politicians on any of the following web addresses; CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), PMW (Palestinian Media Watch)and a whole new world will be revealed and in their own words and calls to action. These sights are all reputable translation services which are run by NGOs who take pride in their work and present as honest a translation as they are able as to do otherwise would have had them revealed as untrustworthy in all the media which would love to be able to silence their reporting.

 

Most of us already have realized we are being fed propaganda by the mainstream media; even on the so-called honest reporting in Fox the entirety of the truth is withheld as to be that forthright would cause them more trouble than their reputation is worth. It would be difficult to report news if you were spending half your manpower on facing court cases for wrongful reporting and emotional damage due to false reporting brought by adversaries desiring to prevent certain facts from reaching the public. Thankfully, and due to the bloggers, the truth of the vote against having belief in G0d as well as Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel being rejected by the floor when it was attempted to add it to the party platform back in 2012 was reported by C-SPAN with some coverage but not wall-to-wall 24/7 as they would have done if the Republican Convention would have been reported. There is even a You Tube video of the procedure which is rather amusing in a strange sort of way (see below). You cannot make these things up, honest. It would be difficult to tell but Hillary Clinton has told some tall tales, which if attempted to change position similarly by Trump has gotten nightly coverage. One prime example was when speaking to coal miners where Hillary told them she was ready to put them back to work despite her speech a few years ago about how she was going to put coal out of business when speaking to an eco-conference. I know, that’s just politics. Remember that the next time they ridicule Trump for making contradictory statements or do you believe that when Trump does it that just proves his dishonesty or simply his being mentally challenged. The media has taken a side in the American elections and they have also taken a side against Israel in their reporting except they couch it by granting the Palestinian side complete forgiveness in all things and never reveal their lies and other prevarications. Some examples of truths you have never heard? Read on.

 

The actual lands which belong to Israel for the homeland of the Jews includes the Negev Desert, the Galilee, Judea, Samaria and all the rest of the lands between the Jordan Valley and the Mediterranean Sea including the Jordan Valley. That is a trick statement because it actually equals all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. This was decided at the San Remo Conference, further validated by a unanimous vote by the League of Nations, was stipulated in the British Mandate, and included in a number of treaties which included validation of the San Remo Conference within the documents after World War I, included specifically in the Treaty of Sèvres and finally was validated by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Simply put, International Law supports Israeli ownership of the land and they can do as they please with some basic reservations. They must provide all non-Jews with religious freedom, freedom of property, freedom of association and other basic freedoms with one very important exception; they do not need to grant anyone other than Jews with political rights. This means they do not have to give the Arabs the right to vote in Israeli elections or even local election if they so choose. This is a very important technicality as it completely erases the claim that the Arabs can take over Israel democratically by reproducing and simply out populating the Jews and vote them out of Israel one way or the other. Israel has the right to allow the Arabs in the PA areas total freedom in every way with the exception of the vote and other political rights according to international law, period. The principle wording of the San Remo Convention states, “British Government, and adopted by the other Allied Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” The political status for the Jews in other countries were not altered as instead over the ensuing two decades after the founding of Israel the vast majority of Arab nations which had Jewish communities ejected them after taking virtually all their precious possessions and their savings. Once they were evicted from the home nations, many of their families had resided in for centuries if not thousands of years, most made their way to Israel as if they had no relatives residing in Europe or the United States, they were denied entry and only Israel offered them a welcoming homeland. Israel could and should annex legally and officially the remainder of lands, reclaim Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and grant their Arab citizens resident alien status and even be beneficent and allow them voting rights within Area A and B where the PA currently has control and allow them to reside where they please; but if they leave the PA semiautonomous region, they would lose all voting rights. Their elections would be monitored and arranged by Israel and would welcome any and all foreign observers so as to assure these elections were not mismanaged. This would be legal under every manner of international law and the granting of semiautonomous region where the Arabs would have voting rights is a measure of magnanimity by Israel. We have presented this before but it bears repeating as often as necessary as currently there are some very dangerous ideas floating around even within the Israeli government and even from the high command of the IDF. We have covered some of these subjects over the last days. Perhaps this would be a good place to stop just in case any would like to scroll down or visit any of these articles; End the Charade and Keep Your Promises, It is Time to End the Arab Occupation, As Long as They All Hate. The urgency of the situation is drawn from the fear and soon to be fact, within a generation or two at the most, the world of nations will spit out their Jews and then attempt to eradicate Israel from the maps and history.

Palestinian Peace Demands Piling Up Already

 

The first change which will have to occur before any peace negotiations can even be considered is an end to what is being referred to as violence in response to incitement which, according to United States Secretary of State John Kerry, is ever-present emanating from both sides. There is a simple description given by Wesley Pruden in his article Lies, lies and whoppers in the Middle East where he wrote the following;

The knife has become the weapon of choice in the Palestinian war against Israeli civilians, brandished as if it were a holy scimitar of the avenging Allah. The dean of a university in Gaza characterizes this campaign of the short knives as “military operations,” and urges that it be aimed at women and children. “The Jews of Palestine are fair game today, even the women,” the dean, Subhi al-Yazji, a learned doctor of Koranic studies, told an interviewer on Hamas television. “Every single Jew in Palestine is a combatant — even the children, breastfed on hatred for the Palestinian people.”

But lest one forget the reason for the current flare-up and heightened violence, the talk of restarting peace negotiations were circulating in the West as a necessary step for progress in establishing any Palestinian State for the Arabs living west of the Jordan River in what were previously lands occupied by Jordan before the Six Day War. Now the demands are for an end to the incitement and the violence such that the world can work towards a lasting peace through resumption of negotiations. One had better get ready for yet more, grander scale, and more violent targeting schools targeting children, synagogues targeting the religious, and places of public gathering such as malls, cinemas, bus terminals and similar places where people congregate in vulnerable masses. The incitement in the Arab Palestinian media, schools, religious institutions, children’s programs, social media, and other venues to increase with emphasis on the rewards of martyrdom resulting in an increase of attacks including possibly suicidal-homicidal-bombings as demanded by Hamas of both their own members in Judea and Samaria as well as challenging the members of Fatah and the PA (Palestinian Authority) both of which are headed by Mahmoud Abbas. All signals evident here in Israel are actually worrisome as this is one of the first times we have heard of demands and expectations from a new source, something many will have to take my word for as there has been such little news coverage that we were able to locate; the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks in Israel on Israeli women and children. These incitements will be completely ignored by much of the world media as translating Arabic is just far too difficult and bothersome to look into Arab incitement. Fortunately, should one desire to avail themselves of such translations then simply spend a weekend reviewing the plethora of translated news and other items including incitements, sermons and lessons plus their textbooks and maps where Palestine replaces all of Israel which is what is taught in their schools and madrassas including those within Israel can be viewed in part available online at CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), and PalWatch (Palestinian Media Watch). One afternoon or slow morning spent sampling any of these sites and getting a flavor for things many have never suspected as it has been a closely guarded secret in much of the Western world.

 

What we really desire to discuss is the first salvo being fired demanding for Israel to meet the Arab demands in order to sit down with the Arab negotiators. This leads only to being insulted and slandered in the discussions and too much of the world media and then be blamed when the Arabs walk out of the negotiations calling Secretary Kerry and all others who actually thought these were honest talks fools and then claiming the Israelis forced the end which all too often is echoed in the Western media as factual. Actually this will have been just a ruse to get more sacrifices from the Israelis and pocketing a promise here and there for the future sources for demands to be made on Israel and forced on Israel with Western help. This initial demand was voiced this week by PA foreign minister Riad al-Malki who demanded when speaking to Kol Yisrael radio, “a return to the status quo that existed since 1778.” He further demanded for Israel to stop collective punishment and withdraw all its troops from “occupied areas.”

This all begs the question of why the PA Foreign Minister would demand a return to a time under Ottoman Rule unless the desire was to demand something completely out of the question such that it could then be claimed that Israelis are not interested in peace as they refuse to meet even the most basic and reasonable preconditions which are simply actual obligations of promises the Israelis made as we understand their positions. This is a blatant lie but as long as nobody bothers to ask exactly which demand is it that Israel promised which you claim they are refusing, then they can continue to claim with vague references that Israel has refused to meet their obligations and until the obligations as we have reported months ago are met there can be no peace. That they are calling for the complete withdrawal of all Israelis from everywhere beyond the Green Line as well as a return to Ottoman Rule of 1778, unless the report was mistaken but even if they got one number wrong, even 1978 or worse, 1878, make little difference as it has nothing to do with the date but with obstructionism by Mahmoud Abbas and his merry band of miscreants.

 

Perhaps this might be a good time to review the actual demands made ever since Yasser Arafat founded the PLO with the assistance of the KGB training and assistance and Mahmoud Abbas at his side from Moscow to Ramallah. This was in 1964; a full three years before there were any “disputed territories” as the 1967 Six Day War was nowhere to be seen even in the early planning stages. So, what was it that the PLO claimed to desire to liberate to form their Palestinian State? Israel, every last inch of Israel at which point they had claimed they would merge it with Jordan as Jordan was the true Palestinian Arab homelands and all of Israel must be incorporated into Jordan and the Jews removed from the lands. That desire has only altered slightly in that there is no longer any mention of joining with Jordan as to admit such would defeat their entire complaint that the Jews have stolen their lands. Their demands for all of Israel have not changed and is the reason why they cannot allow any agreement to be signed as doing so would defeat their entire raison d’être which is the founding of their Arab supremacist state on the graves of the Israelis and their homelands. The real reason is that they believe that all lands which have ever been part of the Arab or Muslim kingdoms must never be permitted to fall into the hands of the kafir, especially the kafir Jew. This is the basis for why there can never be peace as long as the State of Israel exists. That is the reason behind the insane demands and the reason for the walking out on every peace talks as they close in on an agreement and that is why this conflict can only end when one side has been eliminated or so beaten and driven from the lands that they no longer exist to demand anything. Simply put, in the end there can be only one nation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. For who do we bet will persevere? Well, as there are already twenty-two Arab nations whose origins exactly match the PA Arabs origins and there is only one Jewish State and should it fail the Jewish religion will almost assuredly all but disappear from the face of the Earth, our bet has been placed on Israel which is amongst the reasons for many Jews to be living here leaving often much comfort and assured easy life and future to fulfill the dream and predictions made over three-thousand-years ago to both Abraham and Moses, and why they performed their miracles and we must now make our own miracles and realize that all things come through Hashem.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is scheduled to give his speech to those of the entire Congress with the backbone and wits to attend what President Obama, his administration, the leftist politicians in the United States, and most embarrassing, leftist politicians in Israel and is willing to withstand the withering barrage from the leftist media which will hopefully be easily over four-hundred-seventy-five who sit through the entire speech. There is planned a show of great lack of significance to show disregard and insult for Prime Minister Netanyahu arranged by the Congressional Black Caucus who decided their ire would be best served if they interrupted THE Speech by noticeably walking out in the midst of THE Speech as a sign of the racist nature of THE Speech. The media has harped on THE Speech claiming it is designed to destroy the United States Israel relations as if President Obama’s wrecking-ball relations and operational leaks of presumed privileged communications had not already set the stage for a mortally wounded relationship. Fortunately, once the United States occupant in the White House regains some manner of balance and diplomatically less caustic intent forming every interaction pertaining to Israel and her future I am sure the Israelis will gladly move ahead and simply never mention the injuries suffered the last six years and the potential bumps in the relationship yet to be suffered. Others in the media have accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of making THE Speech all about campaigning for retaining his term in office and being reelected by displaying the good relations he has with the United States by addressing a joint session of Congress. THE Speech has delivered the opponents of Prime Minister Netanyahu sufficient ammunition to shoot him for the next three or four or possibly a round dozen decades and the Israeli leftist media has loaded their weapons to their capacity and will keep the extra munitions for future use. But the politics being played in the United States are far less problematic than the politics being played in Israel.

 

In Israel THE Speech is the center of efforts to pillory Prime Minister Netanyahu claiming that he has destroyed the closest, greatest, most beneficial and friendly relationship any former or potentially future occupant of the White House that Israel will ever experience. Not to toss the entirety of the Israeli media under the bus, we must admit that there are some media sources and reporters, editorialists, anchors and talk show hosts along with bloggers who have supported the efforts by Prime Minister Netanyahu to sound the clarion bell alarms about the impending P5+1 agreement with Iran concerning their nuclear program which Iran claims is solely for civilian use in reactors present and planned for future development while Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and many other world leaders suspect is being utilized to develop and produce in an industrial manner nuclear weaponry. The most distressing of Israeli dissenters who are actively claiming that THE Speech will be the largest possible disaster which will destroy United States relations with Israel and forever cause animosity between the two nations are the two politicians who head the coalition of the Hatnua Party with the Labor Party which these most notorious post-Zionist politicians have mocked the voting public through their use of the misnomer of Zionist Camp, are Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak (Buji) Herzog. Their campaign has almost universally focused on defeating Prime Minister Netanyahu at all costs, and that includes the allowing Iran to attain the ability to fulfill their stated utmost goal to destroy Israel, or as they have referred to Israel, that one bomb nation. Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak Herzog have completely abandoned the unspoken rule for honorable campaigning which places things having direct effects on Israeli relations with the world, especially those relations with historically friendly nations, beyond the pale in any campaign while general theory or policy differences acceptable if handled by stating one’s positions and not direct attacks on actions being undertaken that have direct repercussions on sensitive relations or the future of the State of Israel. Their attacks claiming that THE Speech and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s entirety in office and every actions taken there as working to cause the isolation of Israel on the world’s stage and especially working to destroy relations with the United States and insulting directly President Obama by insisting on giving immediately rather than after the reaching an agreement with Iran before expressing reservations and accusations of reaching and allowing a bad deal which will permit Iran to become a breakout nuclear nation in Prime Minister Netanyahu’s opinion which will be stated in its purest essence as the central subject of THE Speech. As a matter of fact, THE Speech has become a central theme in their campaign and their drive to unseat and replace Prime Minister Netanyahu with their agreed upon sharing with Tzipi Livni taking the first two years and Yitzhak Hertzog assuming the Prime Ministership the final two years knows no bounds nor any restrictions breaking every accepted protocol which have served Israel since her founding on May 15, 1948.

 

So, if the dye is cast and the nuclear agreement a done deal, which simply has a few particulars left to erase the differences, then what is it that Prime Minister Netanyahu believes he can affect by making this apparently contentious appearance, against the better judgment and to the offence which President Obama has expressed, and delivering THE Speech? Perhaps THE Speech will serve its best possible scenario and sour the agreement forcing President Obama to take a new approach, an approach which does not necessarily mean war with Iran which is one of the favorite over-simplifications used by the media. Should that be the eventuality brought on by THE Speech it might lead where the Congress has already stated they intend to head should there not be an agreement reached by the end of March and bring serious, tight, extreme and crippling sanctions against Iran possibly even more stringent than those sanctions which originally brought Iran to the negotiations table before President Obama relaxed sanctions removing many of the most hurtful and effective sanctions. This may work to not only force Iran to reenter negotiations and even potentially force a far more advantageous deal where Iran is forced to not only forfeit continuing their enrichment of uranium, end their construction of the Arak plutonium producing reactor and disassemble all of their centrifuges. This is the deal that President Obama is impossible to attain and that Congress desires using sanctions to prove it to be attainable if only sanctions and time are permitted to work. But it is more probable that President Obama will complete the negotiations and have an agreement to sign in the near future. The only question left is how far Iran will defrost relations with the United States from their frosty ice age which has been the basis ever since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the ensuing hostage crisis where Iran held fifty-two American diplomats and citizens for four-hundred-forty-four days from November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981, coinciding remarkably with the inauguration of Ronald Reagan. But really, what if THE Speech makes absolutely no difference regarding the agreement being forged between the P5+1 and Iran?

 

There may be reasons beyond simply giving THE Speech before those willing to attend the joint session of Congress and instead intended for the audience beyond which will either view THE Speech through a video or audio transmission, but in Israel the broadcast has been ruled that it must not be broadcast live but with a five minute delay such that anything considered to be a form of campaigning can be muted or even blackening the screen simultaneously as the audio is muted as a precaution against Prime Minister Netanyahu potential to utilize the speech for electioneering purposes. Outside or inside Israel THE Speech will likely be viewed live on CSPAN and I am sure that any interested head of state or politician will be able to arrange viewing live, so basically there will be political leaders and people worldwide who will be able to view live or otherwise view THE Speech with a little effort thus Prime Minister Netanyahu will be speaking to a far wider audience than the United States joined Houses of Congress minus the detractors who will be heeding the demand for them to be the balm for President Obama’s damaged pride by boycotting Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address or possibly his entire visit including any meetings or question and answer sessions he may attend. Then there will be the release of the text which does lack any emphasis added by the Prime Minister’s delivery. These foreign viewers may also be a significant part of the audience intended to be reached by the Prime Minister. Perhaps THE Speech will cause one of the P5+1 members to come out and oppose the agreement thus using their veto to block its implementation other than the United States which leaves Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia. Obviously, Russia and China are more closely aligned with Iran and potentially have no issues with their attaining nuclear weapons capability so the actual targets to object to the deal and demand far more stringent restrictions hopefully crippling the Iranian drive towards nuclear weapons capabilities would be Britain and France. This is not as preposterous a possibility as many might believe as back when the tentative agreement was reached in December of 2013, in a previous vote on the tentative agreement Britain informed the Saudi Arabian rulers of the terms and expressed reservations though they eventually agreed while the French made their communication with the Israelis and initially the French delegation vetoed the agreement and it took until the next day to persuade or otherwise have the French remove their objections and in a subsequent vote all went as preferred by President Obama and his team. It was months later when it became known that the United States had held secret talks and had already released parts of the sanctions even before receiving affirmations from the other partners of the P5+1 nations. So, there is the potential for THE Speech to influence either the British or the French governments such that they send orders to their negotiation delegates and their Foreign Ministers that they have decided to oppose the arrangement hammered out by the United States and Iran independent of the influences of the rest of P5+1 negotiation teams. But what if THE Speech fails to influence any of the nations taking part in these negotiations sufficiently to actively oppose the agreement which is expected by mid-March leaving a little time before the March 31 deadline to smooth any unexpected ruffles which may occur, then what other possibilities could also be sought by Prime Minister Netanyahu?

 

There is another alternative which is probably the least desirable of the potential possibilities and thankfully one of the least likely. Just because the United States along with Russia, China, France and Britain, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and the holders of veto power in that body where the United States veto has been used to Israeli advantage since June of 1967, and Germany which pretty much includes the power brokers from the European Union which has also been included in these negotiations since their inception, reach an agreement or accord, anything other than an actual treaty approved by the United States Congress, does not preclude other nations from attempting to influence or force Iran into negotiations and potentially an even more restrictive and enforceable agreement is not excluded from reality. Such an attempt would require virtually every nation which would otherwise trade with Iran or buy Iranian oil to impose a complete shutdown on all trade with the possible exception originally of medical and food trade goods, but even those would be threatened to be included if the initial sanctions were not sufficiently effective in pressuring Iran into negotiations with this new alliance. Such a decision by a group of nations which might even include one of the first alliances which included Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, Bahrain and Indonesia with having Israel as not only one of the nations included, but the nation leading the coalition though it would not be impossible for Israel to operate under the radar, so to speak, and allow Saudi Arabia or Egypt take the leading role. The real threat which would make this such a risk and also so undesirable is the alternative if such sanctions prove ineffective when weighed against the investments and trade with the United States and Europe as well as Russia and China, especially China who buys a large amount of Iranian oil, then that coalition of the willing might find many participating nations not so willing if the time came that makes the need to risk military action against Iran to be placed on the table as an alternate option should Iran continue to refuse to negotiate with this second set of nations. There are very few nations which have sufficient military forces and resources who could join together and pose an actual threat to the Iranian military. There would also be the direct possibility that the nations who took part in the P5+1 negotiations with Iran would decide they needed to enforce their agreement as sufficient and threaten the new alliance with an embargo on them or worse. It is difficult to think of any coalition which would, let alone could, stand against such pressures. The unfortunate thing is there is little hope that THE Speech will have any favorable effects but at least the world, starting with the Representatives and Senators who are in the chamber will receive an in depth explanation of exactly where the Iranian nuclear weapons program has progressed, how long it might take them to build a single nuclear device and how soon after that they would be capable of constructing additional warheads and of the level of sophistications these devices might have and the ever important yields and potential for an EMP device. The one huge question everyone should be clamoring to find the answer, and that is does Iran have the ability to construct a thermonuclear device, in other terms, a hydrogen fusion bomb. If THE Speech reveals that Iran has such technical ability, the engineering specialists capable, and the necessary elements and a trusted and continuous source, as that too would be required to attain such unsettling, daunting and intimidating capabilities; such known to be established capability might even serve as a wake-up call for President Obama, the man who promised to minimize or even reduce the numbers of nuclear armed nations, not initiate and welcome the newest nuclear nation and announcing the newest arms race to nuclear weapon production across the Middle East thus essentially nullifying the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) and potentially facilitating the dread inevitability that once almost every nation which desired nuclear weapons were to become so armed which all but guarantees the certitude that a nuclear war will break out somewhere and that will signal the end of civilization and the onset of a world which more resembles those post-apocalyptic B-movies which were released during the Cold War and the threat of a nuclear exchange between the Communist and Western nations.

 

There are those who have claimed, as have I, that President Obama desired to knock the United States from not just the world stage while he was President, but to permanently prevent the United States from reasserting herself as the preeminent surviving super power or even imposing her will through military actions such as was the case in Afghanistan and Iraq until President Obama surrendered both nations through premature retreat pulling out and reducing American military presence such that they served more as advisors and were made too impotent to be a credible force in the field of battle. This is what led to the birth of ISIS and their rise as a threat to Syria and Iraq thus far while the core group also threatens Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel. This was followed, almost ran concurrently, with the pullout of American forces when President Obama pressed Egyptian President Mubarak from office and supported the Muslim Brotherhood and their takeover of Egypt. Following Egypt there was the NATO action initiated by President Obama, though the United States led from behind, that toppled Moammar Gadhafi from power in Libya which destabilized the nation and is where a second core for ISIS was born and has begun to slaughter Egyptians as well as Libyans and threatening to mount an amphibious assault on Italy with the aim of sacking Rome. There have also been reports that ISIS aligned cells are already setting the groundwork to replace the Arab terror groups in Judea, Samaria and Gaza so that ISIS can war with Israel and presumably drive the Jews from their homelands once again. There are bands affiliated with ISIS marauding in the Sinai Peninsula which makes the coup in Egypt potentially a good thing even if it put General Sisi on the throne as a civilian, of course. The destabilization of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has reached from the eastern borders of Iran to the sandy shores of Morocco and the Atlantic Ocean. During President Obama’s terms in office Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has all but completed the transformation of Turkey from Secular society to an Islamic society and virtually enacting Sharia. About the only things that President Obama has yet to complete of the items I had feared were his goals for his Presidency to live-up to his standards and complete those particulars I suspected he desired to complete, he still has a way to go to make many of them but President Obama has functioned with a firm reliance that he is invulnerable and that he has effectively neutered the Congress and will simply allow the courts to fight out the rest of what he performs and he also hopes to be able to appoint some people to the Supreme Court as well as the lower courts. His wildest dream would be to replace two or three of the four conservative stalwarts on the Supreme Court with youthful and energetic justices who share his political views especially that the Constitution is dated and no longer applicable to modern society and thus to be largely ignored whenever it becomes and threat to establishing a just and fair society. Such a society would be based on equity in all things starting with wealth which requires complete establishment of the engine for redistribution of wealth, judicial decision based on racial, gender, sexual preference guidelines which would give special consideration to the favored peoples, the gutting of the United States military which was started by cancelling the production of the F-22 fighter jet along with numerous other new weapons systems, the reduction of Western nations military abilities such that they became susceptible to invasion incapable of resistance, open borders with amnesty and citizenship for all who desire to live in the United States and can actually get here with the Border Patrol redefined job to be the issuing of all items necessary for proof of citizenship, and to destroy the entirety of the United States nuclear arsenal and the ability for the manufacture of replacements once his terms in office are over. His grand design for the Middle East was for Iran to replace Israel as the hegemonic power, give the Muslim Brotherhood the power to rule in an nation which he succeeded in doing for one year in Egypt before the military responded to the demonstrators’ outcries for liberation from the sliding towards Islamist Sharia governance before it became too late, and the establishment of the Palestinian State even if that required it being consecrated in the corpse of Israel in the process. President Obama still has just under two years and he does not need to fear another election or the support of the people and he did manage to get Obamacare passed inside of his first two years so imagine what he can accomplish in his last two years. Meanwhile, we wait on next Tuesday when Prime Minister Netanyahu stands before the mostly combined Congress and potentially every vital, influential, powerful, wealthy, successful and empowered individuals and groups the worldwide and delivers THE Speech, let us hope it accomplishes something very positive in making that necessary changes in the path being taken currently by our world and alters the hearts and minds of those who hate and those who aim to destroy while preventing any further enfeeblement of the Western world as it nears a time of destiny which will decide the future of the human race possibly permanently. We may be coming up upon the final conflict in which the victors will lead us all beyond the cusp into new full of promises and great accomplishments with wonders beyond our imaginations or backward to a period where we live an unbelievably brutish existence lacking in civility or any refinement and thoughts of plenty and dreams of a future will be torn from our minds as time for such things do not exist in such a world.
