Hillary Clinton; the Great Legacy Runs Aground

 

Let’s talk Clinton, Hillary that is. She was supposed to be The Candidate, the Unstoppable One, but nobody told Barack Obama and he spoke so much more eloquently and was smooth as a well-aged single malt scotch. He glistened and his words were lilt with a little jazz and simply reminded all of other great communicators, except Obama had magic that excited the youth, a group not normally excited by Presidential politics and thus they are a game changer. So the queen was put off for yet another eight years and she has reached the now or never point. Let’s face the truth, Hillary is well passed her sell-by date and only Bernie was more stale on the shelf, except he was so stale that it actually rang as new to those young idealists and he could have won had the decision already been made, Hillary or Bust. So the fix has been revealed, nobody was shocked, and nobody other than some still feeling the Bern even after the Bern, Bernie that is, had sold his soul and backed Hillary for a few slots on the Platform Committee which made the news as Cornel West, James Zogby, and Rep. Keith Ellison who demanded that the BDS and pro-Palestinian anti-Israel planks be part of the Democrat Platform but the fix was in and they had none of that. There was not going to be a repeat of voting down the mention of the Divine and recognizing Israel as an ally this time around as in 2012. The Convention was planned right down to the last snap shot and television camera angle, well, all except the one below which got by the planners somehow, or maybe it was photo-shopped (see image below). Even the demonstrations outside the convention were tame compared to what some expected. So, yes, they burned an Israeli flag and a Palestinian flag was presumably held up front and center and was caught by cameras (see image below). And then there was the demonstrations outside by largely Bernie Sanders supporters some of which chose to burn an Israeli flag while chanting “Intifada, Intifada” which is another way of chanting Murder Jews Murder Jews but even this was not condemned as far as we were able to confirm by anybody from the Democrat Party inside (see video below).

Enough though about the fixed, or apparently fixed primary as both parties had their preferred candidate list and one succeeded in procuring their candidate the nomination and the other failed miserably by, as some have claimed, nominating the biggest buffoon and clown from a field of seventeen, but enough about the Republicans as they were talked over yesterday. Back to the former First Lady from Arkansas, former Senator from New York, and former Secretary of State also from New York and now the Democrat Party candidate for President of the United States. So far her campaign has been seamless and smooth as long as one ignores the little glitch where an aged politician independent not even a Democrat but a self-proclaimed socialist almost pulled the rug from beneath the anointed one to once again spoil her coronation. But with that almost put behind her and soon to be forgotten, bigger challenges of the actual race for the White House now begins in earnest. The polls have been showing Hillary Clinton receiving a bounce from her convention while Trump’s polling has flattened as his bounce wore off and the Democrat Convention took all the air time out from under him. Hillary Clinton has what many are calling an unending cash flow to do any campaigning she desires and in as big and wide of markets as her campaign deems necessary. There are some who have claimed that Hillary Clinton could buy so much air time between now and the elections that the studios might have little if any prime time spots available should Trump ever decide to try and purchase ad time for his spots. There probably are rules concerning amounts of time which one candidate is permitted to take before scheduling begins to appear as solid wall to wall advertising for a single candidate for President with the other candidate basically out in the cold, which would be an interesting situation for research. There may be no limitations on advertising or requirements to make equal time available to the other candidates. The law may simply be the time must be available and for the candidates and first one buying gets the prime times and then the breaks. As near as we were able to research there are few limitations which would prevent one candidate from purchasing significantly greater broadcast time even to the point of nudging the other candidates from purchasing time if they were to put up the predominant amount of advertising time available though with the number of networks and with cable and satellite broadcasts that would be a very difficult and likely impossibility any longer. Still, one candidate could still purchase such a majority of the time that their advertisements would far outnumber the other candidates and that would apparently just be too bad. So, one has to wonder exactly how much television advertising time Hillary and associated interests will be able to purchase before anyone else gets started in thinking of their broadcast dollars and how best to use them. Even with the unusual manner and amounts of funds collected by the Clintons while she was Secretary of State which they knew they could use to finance a Presidential campaign, it is difficult to churn up any pity for Donald Trump on this front as, in his own words, he is rich, don’t you know.

 

The problem with trying to judge Hillary Clinton on many of what are often displayed as character faults is that it is next to impossible to honestly claim the high moral ground as how does one place themselves even theoretically in her place to claim they would have handled the position any more honorably. It is easy to claim that her lying to the families of those who died in Benghazi when we were not working for a President who was pushing hard to win reelection and who had demanded that nothing be permitted to counter the claims of ending terrorism in Libya and much of the world just a few weeks before that very election, a crucial point before the election bearing down on everybody pressing all the President’s people to follow the given script. How can any of us claim we know for certain that we would have done the noble and correct thing and turn against the orders of the President who had appointed us. The same is true in many of the instances where people have claimed that either or both of the Clintons, remember that they are a two for one deal, you vote for one and get both when they win, had acted immorally or even illegally. People get kind of weird when you start talking billions and possibly trillions of dollars sitting right there for the taking if only you commit this one little favor, tell this simple ‘white lie’ or even just look away for a moment when everything is on the line. Would we really act any differently knowing that if we can just hold everything together for a few more months, weeks, whatever and we could very well get ourselves a return trip all expenses paid return to the White House, the biggest prize we have always aspired to hold. Can any of us even begin to understand the temptations? We ran a unicorn’s dream of a campaign for simply a Congressional seat in the House of Representatives and you like to believe you ran a perfectly honorable campaign but even when in the thick of the race without a prayer’s chance of winning you still tell yourself that you could be the real Mr. Smith Goes to Washington if only the right opportunity presents itself and you get enough traction that all the voters get to hear you and really get to decide on some fair manner what you stand for. You know in the back of your mind that your fifty thousand dollar campaign cannot honestly compete against two candidates spending around five million dollars each on their campaign but when an interviewer asks you if you really and honestly think you have any hope of winning, you bet the answer is, “Yes, all I need is a fair chance and a moment of clearly stating my principles.” You know that is a dream and a step beyond reality, but you tell yourself that the possibility is out there, and maybe there really are such miracles. We look at the elections of 2010 and realize our shot was only a decade out of step with the right conditions and who knows, maybe our campaign was the flapping of the right butterfly’s wings that brought on the tsunami politically a decade later as in that election there were people rising from obscurity to win seats in the House of Representatives and even the Senate. But when being outspent two-hundred-times-over you honestly cannot hope but against hope and reality that you can come from nowhere and make it on the big stage. We should be honored that we even made it onto the ballot, and we are now, but then we hoped to dream the big dream, even if only for that moment. So, trust us when we claim that it starts with that little lie to yourself that you are the anointed one who will start the revolution and bring integrity into politics and afterwards realize that politics makes anything possible even if only in your own mind. The Clintons just happen to operate in a different world than the one we live in and they do dream and believe they will make it happen, and who knows, maybe they will be the first husband and wife team to have both spouses serve as President and maybe even Chelsea with make it a family trifecta some day. They do dream big and who knows how we ourselves would act in similar circumstances.

 

The Benghazi affair is but one of the misdeeds being leveled against Hillary and the Clintons. Then there are the e-mails where she used an unapproved server and mail system from which to operate her time as Secretary of State. There are claims that by doing so she endangered the United States and allowed sensitive, top secret information to be potentially leaked to America’s enemies. There may be validity to this charge but it also remains to be revealed if the servers utilized by the Clintons were any more or less secure than the servers at the State Department. The first admission that need be made is that there is no such thing as a secured computer or especially secured system. Hillary’s e-mails may have been more easily protected on her private server than they would have been if she had used the State Department servers and secured devices. Think Edward Snowden and the NSA files and other data he procured while in government service and how he is now safely ensconced in Russia and playing with American secured information and we must assume that he gave the Chinese and the Russians a copy of every bit of information he has. Were any of the government servers safe from his prying little keyboard? Obviously, they weren’t, not one iota. Further, many former Secretaries of State had also used their own private servers for their e-mails and their use of such was never called into doubt over their security, so why is Hillary Clinton’s use of the same type of systems becoming such a serious breach of protocols? Could it be because she is a serious candidate for the Presidency and this is just more political opportunism? Again, this is a difficult judgement call and many will make the call for or against the Clintons directly parallel to their political leanings. Can any of us honestly claim to be completely impartial when things concern the Clintons; the most powerful and strongly liked and hated couple on the planet? Are we really able to be that fair and just judge that even many of the Judges from Biblical times failed at being, can we claim to be any better than these? We are all playing politics to some degree.

 

Finally we get to the one item where we just might be capable of being that honorable judge, let’s get to the money collected by the Clinton Foundation whilst Hillary was Secretary of State and is now potentially the next President of the United States. Can we honestly hold to claim there is the stench of impropriety stemming from many of the donations which coincided with favorable decisions made by the State Department as well as others appearing right before, during or immediately after one or both Clintons visited certain Middle East oil sheikdoms? Obviously there is the smell wafting on the air that there is a good deal of smoke, but is there actual fire at the center of all the smoke? We will have to again admit that our politics plays a role in our suspicions and the degree to which we claim where there is smoke there is fire. We cannot honestly claim that there is no smoke, only that the amount is less than being touted by the Clinton’s adversaries. So a closer inspection of these fundings should be investigated and are being investigated by the FBI. Right, we hear you screaming that we cannot trust the same FBI which has found nothing more than potentially unprofessional and careless activity by Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State concerning the e-mail scandal which was possibly nothing more than a partisan swipe throwing charges at the wall and none of them stuck. Perhaps it is time to move on to the next scandal de jure. Perhaps all of these charges are simply political maneuverings to discredit Hillary as a candidate for President and just a blatant use of the investigatory arms of the government to make so much noise it blots out the quiet whispers of truth floating innocently on the air hoping to be heard above the din of political maneuverings. Perhaps all of these charges are simple power politics with the media feeding on the juiciest tidbits found all over the ground around these charges. If there was impropriety and cash to play monies donated to the Clinton Foundation, one would be tempted to claim that such should be evidence comparing certain “favors” against the donations made to the foundation, a school child could determine such with even a cursory inspection. Either there are direct linking dates on deposits corresponding to immediately before or after State Department actions which are also easily traced back to the Secretary of State or there are none. That part of the investigation should have easily been determined and if there are then perhaps this is one which demands a Special Prosecutor to be appointed as there have been claims that the Justice Department has worked with the State Department to obscure misdeeds and clear the Clintons of any suspicious activities. Somebody somewhere has to have made a date chart showing the correlation of deposits to State Department interventions or decisions and show either the slight odor of impropriety or there is little if any real evidence that monies were spent to curry favor from the Clintons, really, somebody, a simple chart is all we need and let the people see what the evidence shows. We all know that there will likely never be a trial with Hillary and/or Bill being marched off in handcuffs.

 

Things in real life rarely echo movies that closely, and talking about movies, the release of the Dinesh D’Souza movie, some would claim hit piece containing more fancy than fact, titled, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” (it should be Democrat Party and not Democratic Party) sure was released at a time when it could peak right before Election Day. If nothing else, this was great market timing for maximum effect and highest possible cash for the making. I guess the Clintons are not the only capitalists capitalizing on political events. Perhaps they could hold movie night for Congress and have an official viewing and then get quotes the day after, it would make for a great review of the film just as unbiased as any other critique. Talk about movies reflecting reality or reality reflecting movies, it is difficult to judge here, but does not the descriptive title of this movie not but reflect a campaign piece produced for the Republican Party or is the movie more balanced than the title. There are numerous versions of this movie or book reading found on You Tube through a simple search of the title.

 

Finally we get to the central fact and the meat to the whole fiasco. We will not learn the truths about Hillary and William Clinton in our lifetimes as it will take at least a century to place sufficient distance between the politically driven legacy of this political couple and even then it will take either a saint or a truly disassociated individual to present just facts with proof and a detailed accounting of everything these two touched. Such a production should be interesting but what is required is something far less titillating, the real and honest truth. That is what at least a few of us would like to see but too many interested parties would preclude such an eventuality. Perhaps such an accounting will be made in the future but for the immediate, well, the coming election will be a huge indicator of how the average American voter feels about Hillary and trusting her with the power of the Presidency. If somebody as imperfect and flawed as Donald Trump who has thusfar yet to even pretend to run an national campaign and instead appears to be making cameo appearances around the country to raving fans where his appearances resemble more an AC/DC concert than political theater, or perhaps this is how elections will be run in the future or at least our immediate future. The Republicans are lamenting that if they had even a flawed politician facing off against Hillary there would be no contest and that Hillary Clinton presented the most easily defeated candidate the Democrat Party could have fielded and they may have missed the boat. Meanwhile, there have to be Democrats feeling the same about Donald Trump as the Republican standard bearer who could only win against a corruptively flawed candidate such as Hillary Clinton and that is whom they are stuck with representing them in what should have been the most lopsided victory in political history. The United States had both parties look through their rolodexes and seek out the least probably of candidates and they both found just what they were looking for, the most easily defeatable candidate from their stables and that was who they each chose. Both sides in the coming election for President will be running campaigns that basically say less about their candidate and stress more on would you really want their candidate in the White House? So what we have is the anti-Trump candidate against the anti-Hillary candidate, you choose. Sometimes it is less laughable to be an Israeli and we thought our election system was unacceptable, the Americans are making the case for monarchy; at least then you know who is coming next and how to prepare. How does one prepare for Hillary or The Donald? It really is not all that recommended to elect a President when they are running on their first name and that makes them identifiable by the majority of the world and well past the United States. Any combination of these two people’s names works to identify them. Remember when we were worried to death of having another Bush vs. Clinton race for the White House? How does that choice sound now? Right, not exactly better but far more predictable. Saddle up as we’re in for a wild ride to November and the real rough ride begins the third week of January 2017; prepare for the worst and what best can we expect?

When somebody mentions the Arab-Israeli peace process the first concept out of almost everybody’s mouth is “Two State Solution” and when asked for clarification they claim “You know, the Oslo Accord thingie with there being two states living side by side with the Arabs and Jews in peace and security.” That is when I like to claim that that already has been accomplished, so why are we still talking about it? That is when I usually get the deer in the headlights stare and weird sounds as they try to wrap their brains around why I am so completely out of my mind, and then I give them the magic formula, “There are two states right now, Hamastan in Gaza and the rest is Israel.” Where I may not have had this identical word for word exchange, I have had this exchange as the basic gist of a discussion and then it devolves quickly just as any honest discussion will with anybody taking the most popular reasoning for why the negotiations keep failing, Prime Minister Netanyahu or the Jews refuse to make peace because of the settlers. I go quietly and calmly ballistic and explain the reality and they inform me that until I take a reality check they are not going to waste their time trying to teach me what really is happening but assure me right before they walk away mumbling about my sanity and shaking their heads that Jews like me are the reason there can be no peace. That is one of the blessings of having made Aliyah; that discussion has not and probably never will occur furrowing my brow unless I make the mistake for going down to Tel Aviv and entering one of the exclusive and needlessly expensive coffee shops seeking to distress myself with two state give up the old city and West Bank Zombies still living in pre Arab Spring turned Winter mindsets. The one point they make which is valid is if there is to be a two state solution then Gaza and the parts of Judea and Samaria which has erroneously become the West Bank, a name invented by Jordan during their nineteen year occupation of lands west of the Jordan River; anyway, the two Arab areas must be unified under one entity. That leads to the other problem, no peace as such can be reached until the Arab civil war between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the rulers in Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad reach some agreement on common governance over their respective enclaves. That is another thing that will not be happening too soon either as the only solution which would have any hope of approval by the Arabs themselves would likely be Hamas if they held an actual election. Without any election the only other possibility would be for the Islamic State to come and replace Hamas and scare the life out of Mahmoud Abbas who would be screaming for the IDF to come protect him from the truly scary Arabs. So, you think that Islamic State would not replace Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza? Let’s see.

 

There has already been a Gazan who died fighting with Islamic State as we mentioned yesterday reporting that Mufleh As’ad Abd al-Wahed Abu Aadra, aka Abu Abdullah, who was killed in or near Tripoli, Libya. This was reported as his wife received notice of his death on February 15, 2016 from Islamic State and she reported this and it was then reported by the Ma’an News Agency on February 16, 2016. People following the Islamic State or knew about Israel and the Arab-Israeli dispute would know that there have been Islamic State cells destroyed by the IDF before they caused any loss of life other than those who resisted arrest. A select few of the Islamic State cells were taken by the IDF within Section A which requires PA permission and thus makes it likely, or at least possible, that the PA could have detected the presence of Islamic State and requested Israeli assistance. In Gaza there are known to be Islamic State personnel who work with Hamas and Islamic Jihad arranging coordination with Islamic State forces in the Sinai Peninsula. This cooperation is partly why Egyptian President Sisi has ordered the smuggling tunnels flooded or otherwise destroyed. This has led to Hamas leadership accusing Egyptian President Sisi of being a stooge working for the Zionist Entity. Egypt has had their own difficulties with Islamic State, al-Qaeda and criminal enterprises all causing dire problems and great distress throughout the Sinai Peninsula. The real problems between the PA and Israel has nothing to do with the settlers, never did and never will because history has shown that for a real peace Israel will and has destroyed complete communities. When Egypt and Israel made their 1979 peace treaty Israel disbanded ten communities: Avshalom, Atzmona, Dikla, Holit, Netiv, HaAsara-Sinai, Nitzanei-Sinai, Ofira, Sufa, Talmei-Yosef, and Yamit. Then again in the August 2005 disengagement and unilateral effort Israel pulled out and destroyed twenty-six communities including one Bedouin village to the PA in the name of peace. The twenty-two including the Bedouin village in Gaza were: Bedolah, Bnei Atzmon (Atzmona), Dahaniyya (Bedouin), Dugit, Elei-Sinai, Gadid, Gan-Or, Ganei-Tal, Katif, Kfar-Darom, Kfar-Yam, Kerem-Atzmona, Morag, Neveh-Dekalim, Netzarim, Netzer-Hazani, Nisanit, Pe’at-Sade, Rafiah-Yam, Slav, Shirat-Hayam, and Tel-Katifa. Additionally, there were another four communities which were in areas being turned over to the PA in Judea and Samaria named Kadim, Ganim, Homesh, and Sa-Nur.

 

All too soon the PA and Hamas began skirmishing and an ever growing conflict which finally exploded through December 2006 and January 2007 culminating in February on 2007 with the two powers, the PA and Hamas splitting in June of 2007 with Hamas retaining military and civilian control in Gaza from which they have forced an average of a war every two years with Israel starting with escalating rocket attacks over ever greater areas beyond the will of any nation to have restraint before Israel even considers striking back in any forceful manner. Still, when Israel finally strikes back in force the world media responds with accusations of Israeli provocations and use of disproportionate force when Israeli defensive weapons such as the Iron Dome anti-missile systems and well-ordered society which use the nearly excessive numbers of shelters thus keeping the majority of the Israeli population safe while Hamas allows only their fighters to use sheltered areas and force their civilians into harm’s way with intent of causing maximum fatalities and injuries. Should Israel ever vacate any areas of Judea and Samaria allowing the PA to govern them without the presence of the IDF in areas very close to any point and sharing of intelligence then what would stop Hamas from gaining control and defeating the PA forces just as they had in Gaza? The answer is a simply nothing, absolutely nothing. But there is a problem for which we need to thank Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, for initiating the program which went so completely wrong and was finally, eventually documented by a media which has a history of ignoring similar social challenges faced by Israel in dealing with a resolute and fated socio-religious system which structures Arab Palestinian society and governance and their different human right’s values or lack thereof and terribly underdeveloped social constructs with vaguely defined restrictions of interactions as compared with Western society. The New Year’s Eve base social aggressions by “refugee” males to German women across the country’s major cities that anywhere where people were found in close proximity groping and other unacceptable behavior reached levels so beyond acceptable levels that women were advised not to utilize certain central train stations.

 

Perhaps an example we recently found and can be viewed below, if we can summarize and still get the ideas across. One of the more revered Islamic clerics, Imam (Mufti) Hassan al-Laham was broadcasted giving a sermon from Gaza on Palestinian Authority TV on February 8, 2016. He gave marital advice on how to handle a difficult wife. He advised that initially the husband is to warn the wife “politely” in the hope that she will see and adjust to ease the difficulty, the troublesome actions. But what if she is also a stubborn wife who heeds not her husband? “Allah created a solution for this.” The Imam continues telling the husband that if his wife is one who requires additional management that, “Allah created a solution for this” and the husband should try “hitting that does not make her ugly.” We are advised that the Prophet Muhammad advised, “Do not hit the face and do not make her ugly. In other words, not hitting that will bring the police and break her hand and cause bleeding, or hitting that makes the face ugly.” This is not going to a good place according to Western culture and Western Law but the adviser continues advising, “The hitting is not meant to disfigure, harm, or degrade. The hitting will be like a joke. He will hit her jokingly.”

 

 

The above broadcast along with the examples of the inability of merging raw Islamic “refugees” without providing some period of adjustment coupled with education in what is acceptable behavior in Europe and what behaviors will result in their arrest and potential deportation. Such offenses are serious breaches not only etiquette but highly illegal and while molesting unaccompanied women or assaulting and striking anybody are against the laws, numerous laws which when prosecuted would necessarily result in a prolonged prison time and repeated offences would result in deportation, such behavior was acceptable in war torn Syria. One could hope that the recent offenses and other behaviors by the “refugees” would have educated Europeans to the fact that there is no compromise with the behaviors results in simply more egregious behavior and has been the fueling and driving force behind Israeli dealings with the PA as well as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other “Islamic entities Europeans demand Israel deal with in good faith.” Unfortunately such has proven not to be the case. If anything it has caused the Europeans to drive their demands for Israeli concessions or even leveling accusations that Israel has not sacrificed sufficiently to the PA and if Israel would take the necessary, though self-defeating, steps required to make peace with its Muslim entities to the point of sacrificing all of Israel then the behavior of their “refugees” would no longer be so difficult. How the European Union can see doubling down on pressuring Israel will help to relieve their suffering before equivalent difficulties with their Islamic forces is purely baffling, yet that is exactly what has become the case along with a number of additional calls by European entities for further sacrificing. There can be no further compromises as every compromise up until now has only set to harden the PA hearts, as if they were Pharaoh from Israeli history; while the PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State and the rest of the Arab and Muslim world gaze at Israel as the weaker nation with no confidence in their claims begging for peace purely out of fear.

 

This has been echoed across the United States and Europe with pro-Palestinian rallies where often the chanted slogan is, “Khybar, Khybar, oh Yahud (Jews), the armies of Muhammad Come for You!” Add to that the other almost War Cry of, “From the River to the Sea-Palestine Must be Free.” This idea of Palestine existing freed from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea would have it replacing Israel, not existing side by side. Put together at rallies organized by PA agitators and other supporters of Hamas, the PA’s al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and by the liberation meaning replacing, not cooperating in any manner. This extremist view explains repeated refusal to make any compromise, and instead of making counter offers, the PA, ever since Camp David and Taba, has met offers, which they agreed to review only after requiring Israel make unprecedented and unwise sacrifices for peace, from Israel as pleas for being granted any agreement as long as they retained something far less than reasonable compromise would grant. The reason behind this absolute rejectionism resulted from the time the Israelis met the exact offer demanded by Arafat one day earlier stating his terms to President Clinton which surprisingly to all involved Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak who agreed to meet all demands which was then followed by rejection by walking out of the conference in Paris furious that Israel met the demands and Arafat returned to the Palestinian areas and initiated the Second Intifada and an end to peace talks. Ever since the demand made in Arabic to their own people has been clear, they will accept nothing less than all the lands and the death of Israel. That is the reality European demands for an Israeli surrender have produced; an irrational belief that the world led by Europe will vanquish Israel and then gift the land to the PA. I wish that were obvious delusional thinking but can one not claim that is not the result the Europeans also champion in secret in their private affairs. The PA leadership is convinced that all they will need do is wait and allow the United Nations, European Union, European sympathizing governments, and the United States will fight against Israel and bring their desired and inevitable surrender of Israel and the entirety of the Jews worldwide laid before them at their feet prostrated in submission. What makes this all the sadder is the rising numbers in Europe, the United States, World Wide and in the United Nations which has led the PA leadership to assume there is absolutely no need for them to condescend to talking with the Israelis as Israel will disappear once Europe organizes a great army to fight for Muhammad and destroy the Jewish State gifting them what once was Israel, the enemy they could never humble, let alone defeat, and then the entirety of the world coming under the rule of Islam. This is the endgame in the PA’s leadership’s minds and this is their new minimal goal which has come one step closer to fruition under President Obama who has issued many supportive claims and demanded Israel cede more lands than ever before. Between the invasion of Europe and their inroads gained in the United States and United Nations, the Arab and Muslim world believe that the entirety of the Western World will be gifted to and all they will need to do is decide on who will lead this great and wondrously new world, but that is the problems, is it not?

Currently the United States is under mismanagement and is not likely to change any time soon if the polling in the United States proves to be correct. We just cannot help thinking that the American people have lost their way and once again need someone to show them the path back to sanity. The unfortunate thing is that these polls show either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders defeating Donald Trump. Donald Trump? Are the Republicans truly serious about choosing Donald Trump, aka The Donald, as their Presidential candidate? Such a choice would guarantee the United States taking what may prove to be a terminal nap as the time is once again upon the world when they desperately require the leadership of the United States. With the leftist now ruling across the continent and Angela Merkel single-handedly may have all but destroyed much of Europe, the influx of Muslim Islamists will make things all the more unstable. Apparently Europeans forgot the cartoon draw Mohammad disaster from a few years ago when scenes as the one pictured below were anything but rare and an angry and bitter Muslims threatened every corner of Europe and their reaction was pitiful. They acquiesced and promised to make it illegal to insult Islam, the Islamic Prophet Mohammad or take any actions which the Muslims might take offense from. This produced a grievance committee which then proceeded to take offense from almost everything without exception. Europe and many in the United States, especially on the college and university campuses, are where the leaders of the world for the next fifty years are being educated that Islam is sacred while Judeo-Christian ethics and morality are depraved and rejectionable. These will be the generation who potentially will sell the world to Islam for a promise of no more prayers at which point they will need prayer more than ever before. Will the future surrender to Islam? That remains to be seen but they are not being prepared to face what will be wrought, not preparing them in the slightest. If they follow the teachings and actions of their professors and university administrators then all they will know to do is roll over and play dead hoping that their new masters do not inflict too much pain and suffering. They will have held to also hope as the only real hope is to stand for your principles. Of course that requires having principles to begin with. Below is a reminder of what was, what actually is, and what will be the result if the path is not corrected and corrected soon. Winston Churchill once stated something so applicable to the world situation of today which we will post after the images of the past, present and possibly long into the future. The choice is to be made in the next decade or two and made by the youth who have been cheated of having any knowledge of history to guide them going further. If we could advise the youth of the world to study one subject and do so on their own without any bias other than the obvious biases they know each book to hold and not a bias which must be ingrained to pass some far left or far right professor’s class, we would advise histories of the Middle East and North Africa, Europe from Alexander the Greek to modern day, the Mongols, and the years and wars of the first fifty years in United States history, a subject even our education did not teach in any real depth and that, we fear, was due to their teachers’ lack of knowledge or in depth reasons which is what is so vital today.

Winston Churchill said, as promised:

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Ruins and Remains of Peace Process After General Assembly

 

The speeches given at the General Assembly are said, recorded and hashed out in the press with Abbas having the biggest implications while Netanyahu used some serious drama unveiling the reality and truth behind the Obama surrender to Iran on their nuclear drive to weapons status. The Iranian aim is not just atomic bombs but thermonuclear hydrogen bombs with all the sophistication of Russia, China or the United States. Netanyahu then followed his brilliance with a complete and worthless ending addressing the moribund peace process which had already been nullified by Abbas in his speech. Abbas basically felt secure enough with the backing of the United Nations, European Union and the United States, European Union plus numerous other nations, NGOs, and political commentators backing his claims to at the very least being gifted all of the lands beyond the Green Line including all of the Temple Mount, the Old City of Jerusalem and even possibly all of Jerusalem should he demand such from an angry world fed up with the entire process and willing to demand every concession and then some from Israel knowing that the Arabs are immovable in their claims and refuse to reason or compromise on any items and only to demand more. So, after these diatribes and commentaries by two diametrically opposed views, what will be the outcome as well as what should be the outcome as the two are not necessarily the same.

Let us look at Mahmoud Abbas and his supposedly bombshell announcement that the Palestinian Authority and Fatah and any other entity he was the leader of would no longer recognize the Oslo Accords. Abbas tied to this a demand that the United Nations and all of its member states immediately recognize Palestine and to even leave the boundaries as a fluid, ephemeral and inconclusive, undefined, inexact, set line open to further clarifications in the future but at a minimum set along the Green Line and all of Eastern Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and the Kotel (Western Wall and its plaza) over which they would be permitted to forcefully evict every last Jew or genocidally slaughter them in the process of purifying the Islamic lands as commanded by Allah. Mahmoud Abbas has taken a chance by separating himself and the proposed forces waging a terror war with genocidal expectations from their agreement to recognize a change from the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) into the respectable Palestinian Authority and the PLO transformed into a political entity known as the Fatah Party. By casting off the Oslo Accords there now does not exist such an entity as the Palestinian Authority, the Fatah Party is now remerged with the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and the PLO terrorist force. Abbas is betting everything right down to the kitchen sink that the world will no longer require the so-called Arab Palestinian entities under any name to hold viable claims against Israel for the Jewish State to provide them with their own lands and all other needs such as water, electricity and natural gas as well as anything else which proves to be necessary as there will be only Palestine and the Jewish State of Israel will have been subsumed.

 

Needless to point out that the current deficit amount by the Palestinian Authority and all parties to that body already owe in excess of $15.2 million in unpaid electric bills over at least 10 years, part of an all-consuming Palestinian power debt of $430 million that is at the core of the last official breakdown which was resolved by increasing the rates paid by Israeli companies and though not excusing the Arab debt, ameliorating the slow bleeding financially of the Israeli electric companies. There exist similar debts for water and numerous other commodities as well as taxes. Unfortunately the world has always demanded that Israel simply suck it up and absorb this debt repeatedly ever since the existence of Arabs claiming rightful ownership of lands in the heartland of ancient Israel despite most of the land owners being recipients of grants from the Jordanian government when they illegally occupied the land west of the Jordan River. This situation initially came about during the Arab War to Annihilate the nascent State of Israel between 1948 and the Six Day War in June of 1967. The Jordanian capture and annexations, recognized solely by Pakistan and Britain, occupied most all of Judea and much of Samaria as well as a piece of Benjamin and all of the Old City in Eastern Jerusalem. This occupation by Jordan, as a result of the 1948-9 War of Annihilation which placed a half dozen armies and more at the Israeli borders in all directions, piled into Israel on its first day of existence swearing to annihilate ever last single Jews and do so within a few days, a week at most. After two years of war and the loss of around one to two percent of their entire population, the Jews were finally granted a peace, or at least an arbitration which still left the State of Israel technically at war with a number of her neighbors, especially after the Arabs decided to implement the Khartoum Resolutions after a meeting in Khartoum by the Arab League. This meeting led to the infamous “three no’s” which were 1) no peace with Israel, 2) no recognition of Israel and 3) no negotiations with Israel. Netanyahu used the podium well including a prolonged forty-five seconds of complete and total silence and a stern look, which some claim can boil or freeze water pending Netanyahu’s intentions, to represent the lack of rejection of the path Iran has had cleared for them to attain nuclear standing after ten to fifteen years and potentially destroy far more than Israel and the United States as they are far more likely to take upon themselves the destruction of the Saudi Arabian oil fields and whatever other actions they may find to serve their interests before taking on the United States or Israel.

 

In the interim, Israel needs to defend herself and the Jewish People from slanderous anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism, what we think should be made into the three anti’s which every school child needs to be educated where that path leads once a people begin to tolerate even the slightest intolerance. Former Rabbi to the United Kingdom Rabbi Sachs wrote an article titled The hate that starts with Jews never ends there where he discussed the spread of anti-Semitism despite a society which prides themselves on their tolerance, the Europeans. In another more recent article by Giulio Meotti titled Anti-Semitism devours Europe he described a number of anti-Semitic acts originating, amongst other places, in Denmark from which I would like to quote one of his finds as he reports,

“Something is rotten in the state of Norway, as Marcello of Shakespeare’s Hamlet would have put it.
A few days ago an image was imprinted as a background on a credit card issued by Dnb Bank, the largest financial institution in the country. You see a Jew with a hooked nose, a yarmulke on his head, a prayer shawl and a cascade of gold coins.”

He concluded this article noting that the spread of anti-Semitism in Europe was akin to “comparing it to the dog rage syndrome or mad cow disease.”
Both of these articles speak of a vile hatred which overtook Germany leading into World War II and has been at the center of so numerous numbers of examples it is beyond accuracy to define any actual cause for the origin of such hatred. The hate of the Jews traced back even beyond those tales often used when making every knight “bloodied” before entering into battle in the Holy Lands by slaughtering the Jews in a stretch of villages which often was referred to as a pogrom against the Jews and such upticks in anti-Semitism almost invariably became a part of Jewish history, a long and tortuous history. The Bible, in the Old Testament, spoke of the origins of the hatreds to any morality, something the Jews had always been at the forefront fighting to defend righteousness and refute all the other false claims of idolatry and multi-deistic religions. Many charismatic leaders using deceit mixed with charms expounded deviant behavior but if one could only reveal the dark underbelly and shine the light of truth on such cults and reveal the hatreds which lay under the same rocks festering and idolatry and often human sacrifice, particularly child sacrifice, the humanity of Hashem and the truths demanded moral and ethical behavior such as equality and nobility of the individual, things not tolerated in the hedonistic practices of the false religious cults. The origins of anti-Semitism began as a defense against the abolition of idolatry, multi-deistic faiths and the large clerical corps of priesthoods devoted to their own enrichment feeling the challenge which Judaism and faith in Hashem placed their hierarchal structured societies and lives of privilege. The reasoning has changed but the core of moral behavior and a supreme creator with all men created equal in worth, potential and love from Hashem are still seen to be threatening to many modern cultural hierarchies and power structures.

Europe will have chosen where they shall stand with the coming invasion of their culture, already almost devoid of faith their traditional faith, replacing it with the doctrine of the human as the supreme being, about to be overrun by Islamic refugees whose faith is rising and will swell further in the furtive but spiritually barren slate before them in Europe. Behind these refugees in a generation or possibly immediately come the demands of Islam imposed through Sharia. The anti-Semitism coupled as it already is with anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism will only grow overrunning any opposition. European Jews will be fortunate to be free from Europe as the change will occur almost overnight. In the United States, and potentially Canada afterwards, this transition will take a while longer because of distance and a great deal of angry waters preventing any hordes of refugee entering its borders, but the change will come. The sole hope for Judeo-Christian ethics will be dependent on a reformation of Islam, a remote possibility at best. Israel will thus be the last and only stand for the Old testament and the remnants who follow the New Testament, the Christians will be residing possibly in South America and Southern Africa and potentially carving a nation out of the southern central states along the Mississippi River, Missouri River, Ohio River and between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains but excluded from the great lakes region. That will be the remnant and with any good fortune and the help of Hashem these areas may remain free with a world otherwise ruled by Islam. Some Christians have already slowly gravitated to support of Israel and the Jews and these Christians will be the leaders of the remnants of Christianity which by necessity will ally with Israel. Those who refuse will likely be lost in a sea of green and black. That will be the fate of those opposing Israel and their worship of Hashem and the keepers of the original Covenant and the Commandments. It is not promising, but if one knows the situation they face and makes plans accordingly, they may find their salvation; the rest will either surrender their will to Islam or die believing that mankind is the true master of their fate and will reap exactly that fate.
