What Could Israel do to End the Stalemate

 

The Western World constantly holds Israel responsible for the failure of the two state peace option which is at the center of every attempt to make peace between the Arabs residing in the areas under Arab semiautonomous control, also known as the Palestinian Authority (PA). The problem is not that Israel had not offered sufficient concessions in order to reach peace. The Zionists are blamed for the lack of peace as they keep drumming the drums for Israel to take the lands. Their claim that the Arabs will be better off under Israeli rule, though likely true, foes against the leftists’ demands that Israel must be held responsible and until the Arabs accept their peace offerings then Israel obviously has not done enough to soothe the Arabs. There is a simple problem, and that is the difference between what the Europeans are selling and what the United States is selling and what the PA and its Arab ruling elite desire. First off, the Western World needs to understand that as long as they continue to reward the PA with monies and full out support, then its leaders who benefit the most from this situation will force the situation to appear hopeless and the Israelis are encroaching on Arab sacred lands and must offer more. The leaders are cagy as they never exactly define what they demand as more. Is it a state of their own? Obviously not, as they could have had that really easily for the nineteen years when Jordan illegally occupied the lands they today claim is all theirs including the Temple Mount and Old City as they sit in what has become known as East Jerusalem. Israel does not want to surrender these lands as they realize just as sure as if the Islamic State held these lands that every vestige of Jewish historic presence would necessarily need to be uprooted and destroyed. That gives us a hint as to why no peace can be fashioned that the PA can be willing to accept.

 

Israel could offer everything the world claims the PA desires, which is interesting because the PA has never made a claim that would end the incessant demands for Israel to surrender more and to give more. The thing is these demands are not necessarily true as the Arabs will not have become satiated even were Israel to give them everything they have demanded. Even meeting their every demand as interpreted by the rest of the world it would not be sufficient. Israel could unilaterally surrender all the lands just as Israel did with Gaza and the PA would gobble up the lands and continue to demand that Israel is on precious Arab historic lands. That would not be sufficient. The problem is the Western World’s definition of the PA claim being limited to the areas which Jordan controlled is too small a claim. The PA demands total removal of Israel from the lands originally held by the Ottoman Empire. The PA has no desire for a two state solution or even a one state solution where they are rewarded for their intransigence with a reward of all the lands and even then they would not form a state. They would start to demand that the lands they now controlled be made into a perfect Islamic area and that would be insufficient. The PA will never bring themselves to form a state as they would then have to claim they are satisfied with the state they will never realize. The Palestinians want a zero state solution. They want Israel destroyed and to climb atop the rubble and demand more as their real claim is everything from the River to the Sea to become the center from which the next Jihad will be launched. They want their area with Jerusalem as its capital to be the central pillar in a new caliphate which will stretch across the entirety of the globe. They further will demand that their areas which would necessarily now hold equality with Mecca and Medina and would cleanse the area of all undesired entities. For the record, that would mean Christians as well as the Jews would need to be removed. The entirety of the area would even need to be cleansed of even the wrong kinds of Muslims. If the area is to serve as the center of a world caliphate, then it must be made clean and pure. That is why the PA is only interested in what must be termed a zero state solution as their area is to serve as the central capital of the New Caliphate. That is the reality which nobody is willing to identify as the heart of the reasons that no peace can be reached with those who promise to continue the struggle until, and there lies the problem, the PA has never and never can or will define what they demand as they know not what would be sufficient to be worthy of their idealized claims and therein lies the problem.

 

The problem goes far further than just the PA demands as the Muslim groups throughout Europe, northern Africa and beyond into the Americas where they are demanding rights and privileges all set towards spreading the areas of society under their control or influence. Every bank offering Islamic loans has bent a knee to Allah and thus has surrendered. It is just a matter of time before they come completely under Sharia and can only use Islamic approved loans and practices. The secret is the entire world is their oyster and the PA desires to be the pearl stealing the top spot from Mecca and Medina and centering it on Jerusalem. Or, if Jerusalem does not please the rest of the Islamic world, then at least Damascus would suffice, which did serve one offshoot of Islam as their location for the Haj to be met and performed, as Mecca and Medina were off limits and Jerusalem held insufficient nice weather being located in a desolation which had spread over the lands. We now know today that the desolation which held the lands surrounding Jerusalem was in response to the lands not being in the hands of the chosen people, the Jews. This has been made even more evident with the return of the Jews and the fruitfulness the lands have provided Jew and non-Jews alike. The fact the lands which belong unto Israel only produce for the Jewish people has stood the test of time as every occupying power from the Babylonians to the present day has proven incapable of getting the lands to produce without it being populated primarily by the Jewish People. Populated primarily by the Jewish People does not necessarily mean a majority as it means as a place where the Jewish People can work the lands and meet their obligations in serving Hashem. The PA would rather the lands become a fetid and putrefied wasteland of no value or use to any sane people; yet, the PA would sacrifice the lands of milk and honey, when the Jews are present, into the barren wastelands resembling the nuclear wastelands describes in so many futuristic novels. That is the PA solution; the Zero State solution.

 

One need look no further than the destroyed greenhouses left with the Arab workers who had assisted the Jews in fulfilling a multi-million dollar per year industry providing goods for the Europeans. These were the greenhouses of Gaza which could have produced such wealth and profits but as they had previously belonged to the Jews, these multi-million-dollar ultra-modern greenhouses were ransacked and destroyed with terrorists ripping out the PVC piping and metal pipes in order to fashion weapons of war from them. One can only wonder how long it took the terrorists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad to learn that PVC pipes make equally poor rockets as they do launching tubes. About the only good use such items have is as a bomb casing and even then they are not a sufficient fragmentation device. Still, the greenhouses and residences and every last vestige of the Jew had to necessarily be destroyed as anything less would only serve as a reminder that at one point Islam did not rule over these lands, and such a thought must never be allowed by modern Islamic rulers. As the Islamic State barbarians have provided ample proof that they have wantonly wreaked havoc while destroying every last vestige of ancient precious works as the fact they predate Islam is a thought they are unwilling to admit. This was even proven in spades when while Egypt was under the rule of President Morsi there were discussions on how to best remove such icons as the Sphynx and even the Great Pyramid as artillery was known to have proven to be insufficient. The inability of Islam to recognize anything predating Islam despite the Quran actually stating that Christianity and Judaism existed before Islam has proven too difficult for the leaders of the Islamic State and their followers leading them to destructions reminiscent of the Mongol hordes. The PA also suffers from a similar malady as they have used heavy construction equipment upon the Temple Mount in attempts to destroy any remnants of the First or Second Temples, the Temples of Solomon and Herod.

Arab Palestinian Sets Self on Fire Attempting to Throw Molotov Cocktail

 

This will be the symptom of Islamic preeminent thinking as they spread their contorted form of modern Islam connoted by the acts and wanton destruction in its wake wherever it has raised their black flag signaling their conquest. The current extreme of Hamas and Islamic Jihad who have made the claim of their intent to destroy every vestige of Israeli existence by simply setting about destroying all inferences that any civilization other than that which Islam built ever existed upon any location on earth is just as evil and horrific as the destructions carried out by the Taliban of the ancient Buddhas or the Islamic State destruction of Palmyra. Both show the inability of Islam to permit any inference that it is not the only force ever to exist and the beginning and end of all that is, was or ever will be. Such belittles the history of man and the accomplishments made in the name of science. The Church took a similar stand against science and eventually lost as it brought on the Reformation which challenged the very right of the Church, then named the Catholic Church, which has stood until modernity, to reevaluate its stance against science which led even the most backwards, flat-earth believers to slowly be dragged along as science broke down wall after wall until the light of day and scientific advancement shone through to even the darkest corners. Now there is Islam threatening to force mankind into yet another Dark Ages and this time there will not be any celestial rock striking the Earth leaving behind a winter which lasts for a third of a decade before finally lifting to put mankind back into an age nobody should desire return. Unfortunately, such has not bothered the Islamic State and would not bother the PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others if it served to place the entirety of the world under the banner of Islam. Destroying much of scientific knowledge rendering mankind back to an age where darkness filled not only the night but also crept ever slowly into the day until the last spark of scientific curiosity was surrendered to Allah, then it would be for the better as surrender to Allah is what Islam is all about. No free will, no freedom to discover, no freedom to be unique, no freedom of thought; only the Quran and the knowledge contained within would be accepted under such a state and that alone would force the deaths of tens of millions from starvation and disease that currently are preventable, but that does not matter as long as everyone has surrendered to Allah even if that requires their surrender of their life for Allah as that is the ways of Allah, to worship death and shun life.

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

The difference between the Islamic State and Hamas is negligible and Hamas was born out of the PLO just as was Fatah with Hamas being the religious Jihadi wing who have only grown more violent and more extremist while Fatah began as the Statist (Fascist) Jihadi wing which has from necessity slowly but irrevocably drifted into a religious Jihadi entity who have become all but identical to Hamas. Where Fatah’s goal is the destruction of Israel with the death visited on as many Jews, Christians, Baha’i or any other non-Sunni Islamists while Hamas matches that bet and raises it to hunting down and slaughtering every last Jew on the planet before setting into the final purification through Jihadi slaughter of all non-Sunni/Shia on the planet. The efforts put forth by Western governments and organizations to try and differentiate between the good Muslims and the bad Islamists is a game bred in futility as there is only one Islam in the final equation. There is this odd occurrence in Islamic neighborhoods which goes something like this: the Muslims who first establish the neighborhood are middle class and do what they must to assimilate while still practicing a benign form of Islam which repeat quotes from the Mecca Quran. The neighborhood grows and at some point things begin to change. The call to prayer creeps backwards from 7:30 AM to around 4:15 AM while the final call to prayer creeps from 3:30 PM to 10:45 PM and with each five minute increment the volume jumps a good five to ten decibels. That is quite a fair jump especially when it approaches 100+ decibels (rock concert and almost jet engine range). Sermons by the Imam become more radical or a new Imam arrives and produces the same result with the former Imam obediently following the new Imam and translating his decisions to those who do not speak Arabic. While this radicalizing of the prayers and the Mosque and all other Islamic activities, there is another effort to grow the outreach to the youth to strictly follow the teachings of the new more radical Imam. The lessons turn to how Islam is superior and must become the sole religion and political entity and the youth are instrumental in achieving these goals. All the while more and more verses from the Medina Quran start replacing the milder Mecca Quranic verses until the services become radicalized calling for Jihad. At some point along the way there will be one who objects and let us just say that person was the last person to resist the new order. The violent Jihad will have replaced the quiet and peaceful Jihad. Now Islam is preparing to take their proper place as the dominant religion and political force. They will infiltrate certain areas of the governance starting with the education departments where they inject critical Islamic views and practices in such a manner as not to startle parents but to get their children acclimated to Islam. They will demand that local branches of banks implement Islamic lending practices which, contrary to some have claimed, still permits interest but instead of being a percentage applied over time, it is a set price for a loan of so many months where paying it off early does not save money and there are penalties for late payments. The bookkeeping for Islamic financing is easier and requires nothing more than looking up the fee for the loan on a chart when the loan is taken and that’s that. Soon women walking in the neighborhood are required to wear head-covers, and then more modesty, and more modesty, and then require male relative escorting them and the women who do not comply must be harlots and are treated as such. Rapes of non-Muslim women becomes commonplace to the point that every non-Muslim girl whether modestly dressed or not is rape target if not escorted by sufficient male forces to prevent such. This may require five or more men escorting any non-Muslim women. This acts as an incentive for women to convert to Islam at which point they are married off to a Muslim man and if lucky remain in their native country and if not they find themselves as part of a harem where as the only white woman being treated extremely poorly as the outsider who does not belong. They may even end up dead. The entirety of what Islam uses to impel and compel a slide from Islam is peace, just read the Mecca Quran which is all about cooperation and coexistence, to eventually the Medina Quran, which is all supremacy, violence and destruction leading to replacement of governance with Islam, as Islam is about surrender to Allah which includes surrender to the whims of the Imams. A simple summary can be read here with numerous links offered in comments which answer many of the questions one might have, all in all our readers have grown this essay into a complete history.

 

The end result is that an Islamic oriented community is little different than any other community in a new land. The first immigrants are coming to escape the old ways or seeking a better life in the new lands be it Australia, the United States, China, Italy, Spain, New Caledonia or wherever and their highest desire is to be accepted, to fit in. They manage to do just that and this lays the foundation for the next influx that are mostly interested in a better life but are less inclined to completely melt in the melting pot. They refuse to melt entirely and begin mild agitation. These immigrants bring another group behind them and this group has sufficient numbers to make-up half of the community and they brought the old world with them. Now you have confrontation between the old world and the new world. In the past the old world was willingly discarded in favor of the opportunities and progress the people of each group had managed to make. With the Islamic neighborhood the first big wave which now made-up half the population arrived with as much if not more money than the existing community. This gave them weight that was not at the disposal of most other second wave immigrants. These newer arrivals slowly but inexorably moved the community towards being more radicalized. Eventually these newer members of the society were found to be activist instigators and influence peddlers. They actually had paid position from the homelands to sway the youth, use the youth spying on their parents to find where the resistance was and eradicate them by heavy persuasion or even violence, but not quite to the point that law enforcement were involved, or at least rarely. These newer arrivals and the continuing flow of newer arrivals drags the community towards an offensive group which demands preeminence and take over one area of the political arena after another. They start with education and flow on to housing where they can provide their own with the best places and begin through assigned housing and other actual government programs of which Section 8 housing to convert new neighborhoods to Islam. The end result is the Western World, Europe in particular (which some have apparently figured out, even more than those who read the above article, though we like to believe it made a difference, that this is the threat) is the threat that the entirety of nations are coming under Islamic control and if steps are not taken soon, and these might even lead to open confrontations, which may not be as bad as the alternatives, then entire nations such as Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, Finland, Sweden (who probably deserve what they get after their threats and declarations concerning Israel) and who knows where else, just look for Islam jumping ugly and you will know and that is where to start. Pushing back against the Medina Quran and demanding Islam live by the Mecca Quran ( see link) as given above and learn and then use what you learn to see where your city might be and whether you need be concerned. Our claim is be afraid, be very afraid, but do not let that ruin everyday life, just demand that your style of life not be destroyed by foreign fanatics; it is that simple, so go for it.

Israeli Settlements a False Issue

 

Concentrating on half-a-million Jews and ignoring a situation of ten times the numbers which are the five-million refugees presumably all from 1948, with just a smattering from 1967, forced within Israel proper to force Israel to become an Arab state, the twenty-third Arab State, and removing the sole Jewish State conceals the reality of the situation, that the Arabs are insisting not on their own state but to have both states to become Arab states with the names of Palestine and al-Israelabi. But the reasoning behind the concern all about the “Jewish problem” while ignoring the facts that the Arabs are demanding the death of Israel, demanding to be permitted to swamp the only Jewish State with sufficient Arabs “refugees” who have never for one second been within Israeli borders, demanding the Jews accept any deal as temporary until the next temporary deal, and demanding the world assist in murdering the six-million plus Jews residing in Israel by refusing them exit when the Arabs takeover is simply because the Israelis are civilized and will talk and are willing to resolve problems in a civilized manner while the Arabs are living under a seventh century code of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the former inhabitants or change the order around and put murder the former inhabitants ahead of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the remainder of former inhabitants. Meanwhile Europe and the United States and the remainder of Western Civilization is hoping against hope that the Arabs will be sated for a period of time with having Israel sacrificed for a momentary peace except that has absolutely no possibility of working, and here is why.

 

The world needs to wake to the nightmare that is facing them. The leftists in order to rid the world of those they find distasteful from those amongst them, the ones insisting on preserving the Judeo-Christian value system, are siding with a primeval force which is tribal and fiercely demanding of those it rules that they surrender completely and totally to their societal structure which leads to destroying all else and making it all a part of their Islamic society. The difficulty with accepting such a deal will not satisfy these Islamists because their definition of Islam does not accept the convert as having made the choice freely thus not being of a pure Islamic soul and therefore they will be amongst the first sacrificed for the purity of Islam. A warning to the half a billion Muslims who think they are following Islam correctly, you have made one horrific choice as only a Sunni or Shiite can be a true and good Muslim, whichever ends up with the largest camp of believers once the world has been subjugated and all other beliefs have been eradicated. Once the entirety of Islam has been whittled to the pure Sunni or Shiite state, we will simply refer to this as Islam as it matters little which one becomes the prevalent and thus the only form of Islam practiced because this does not end the purification as there will then be those Muslims who are slightly different than the rest of the followers of Islam so they must be impure. This purification could continue until, as in Highlander, there will be only one, and we do mean only one, and thus the end of Islam, Human kind and finally a real intelligent life-form can develop and hopefully make a whole new and different set of mistakes as the most intelligent species on the planet.

 

That problem of an uncivilized force living within a civil society played out again on the streets of Israel yesterday. As of this writing an infant who suffered horrific wounds including the near loss of one of its tiny legs had gone into emergency surgery at Ein Kerem Hospital with the hopes of saving the one and a half year old’s leg through microsurgical techniques and also saving the infant’s life. Dr. Ofer Merin, head of the trauma unit at Shaare Tzedek Hospital, said “the infant aged around a year-and-a-half has a serious wound to his leg. We decided to transfer him to Hadassah Ein Kerem to save his leg in an attempt at micro-surgery treatment.” The attack which caused this dire and tragic situation was the result of yet another assault on a crowded sidewalk in Jerusalem by ramming into the crowd with a vehicle. The attack might have turned out for the worse had the vehicle not struck a fire hydrant bringing it to a stop. After ramming and destroying the hydrant, the driver emerged from the vehicle armed with a hand axe and started moving towards the injured with the obvious intent to finish off as many of the injured who could not run from him and then probably slashing at whomever they were capable of striking. Fortunately, when the driver, a twenty-one-year-old Arab terrorist from Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood, emerged still intent on even more carnage that bystanders ended his rampage of carnage dispatching the terrorist with a few shots eliminating any further realizations of this terrorist and potentially still qualifying as a murderous intent almost qualifying as human. Below is a video of the scene soon after the incident had been dramatically brought to a close and the treatment started. There were fourteen people injured with an older woman in her sixties and the young infant the most serious amongst those injured which does include the infant’s mother being treated at the same hospital as her child, Ein Kerem Hospital. More images can be seen on an article covering the initial assault on Arutz Sheva.

 

 

 

 

Additionally, yesterday three people received light wounds from a rock attack on their vehicle. As they related, their vehicle was assaulted by a barrage of various sized rocks as they were ambushed by a number of youths hurling rocks including some of considerable size one of which penetrated the vehicle window and is pictured below. The three injured individuals received treatment from Magen David Adom (MDA) medical teams and were taken to hospital for additional treatment. Such attacks have become a daily event with numerous such attacks each day. As many Israeli drivers whose travel takes them into areas both within and outside the Green Line where such attacks regularly occur have had the windows of their vehicles replaced with tougher and more resilient and impervious to rock attacks installed and thus have escaped such attacks with minor dents to their vehicles but with the passengers unhurt and capable of taking such attacks more in stride. This does not lessen the severity of the problem but has played to make such attacks not as newsworthy despite there not being any decrease in the number of vehicles under such attacks daily. The only such attacks which are reported are thus those with injuries of sufficient severity as to require a visit and treatment at a hospital; as if the first responders at such an attack are capable of treating people at the scene and their not requiring transport to a hospital, that by the time a reporter and cameraman can appear on the scene of a rock attack the only thing left to see is the police report which even that would require a request for information as even that report has been filed by the police. It is a sad commentary to be capable of saying such attacks which would be considered front page newsworthy in Paris or New York, London or Los Angeles, Berlin or Chicago, the Hague or Boston or even Brussels or Washington D.C. does not make the news cycle even if it were to take place in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv as without a picture there are not the thousand words to replace such and thus the story remains untold. What the world must remember that the attacks on Israelis, be they rock assaults on Israeli vehicles on her roadways, knifings with anything from a kitchen knife to a screwdriver or even including hand axes or rammings with a vehicle where the vehicle is towed away and the people treated on scene, again, no dramatic video and accompanying pictures, then no article and it is dismissed as just another such assault. The positive is by giving such attacks virtually no coverage or mention in the news beyond a blurb before going to commercial, almost a filler if necessary, just does not give the terrorist any “fame” or credit, so to speak, and thus makes the entire idea of such an attack less appealing or glamorous, and the perpetrator being eliminated without being referred to except by the most general of terms, no glamour, no fame, not even any decent notice and possibly thus no virgins in Muslim paradise, what could be worse.

Still, if anyone from the White House or State Department wishes to be front page news, all they need do is one more time condemn Israel for building homes for Jews on land which is liberated Israeli lands taken in an offensive war in 1948-9 by the seven Arab nation’s armies in an attempt to drive the Jews into the sea and annihilate them. The so-called “West Bank” is actually Judea and Samaria which were part of Israel on the morning of May 15, 1948 and the evening before when David ben Gurion pronounce Israeli independence from British rule ending the British Mandate and the next morning seven national armies swarmed over Israeli borders intent on murdering every soul they met, Arab or Israeli. The Mufti of Jerusalem, though during World War II he could have more easily been declared the Mufti of Berlin, has instructed all the Arabs living within Israel to leave and get behind the front lines of the assailing and soon to be tasting victory Arab armies. The imminent slaughter of everybody within Israel did not quite come about as planned as something unheard of until that fateful day, which means very simply, the Jews fought back and did not just wait to be slaughtered as had been the case in Europe. A new day was coming.

 

Next time you hear somebody claim it is the Jews and the settlements which are to blame for there being no peace settlement; please correct their uninformed opinion with some reality. The Arabs could have had half of all the land but they would not settle for anything less than all of the lands and the better half at that. While Jordan held the “West Bank” they could have had their state but they formed the PLO in order to use terrorism to take all the lands. Anytime since the 1967 Six Day War Israel would have traded the “West Bank” all of Judea and Samaria back to Jordan for peace. When Jordan, after Sadat and Egypt boldly went where no Arab had gone before and made peace with the Jewish State (he paid for this brave and fateful move with his life as members of a reviewing troop broke ranks and assaulted the stands and slaughtered him for making peace) Jordan made peace and forfeited Judea and Samaria which Jordan had occupied since 1948-9 up until the lands were liberated in the Six Day War. A few years later the Jordanian monarch bent to pressures from the Muslim Brotherhood and the eighty percent of Jordanian population which also call themselves Palestinians, and forfeited the Jordanian claim (the same claim forfeited to Israel at the peace talks) to the PLO such that their struggle would now be treated as a struggle for their homelands and not just wanton terrorism when they murdered families having lunch at Sbarro Pizza Parlor or a Passover Seder for Holocaust Survivors and their families in the Park Hotel in Netanya, a northern suburb of Tel Aviv which were both blown to pieces by bombs in terror attacks which are taught in Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas schools as brave acts of martyrs to be honored and emulated. Please read these last links as they will open a new vision into these acts and their places in the two different societies, one barbarous in nature the other the civilized one who is blamed as that is the safer target.

 

When you hear anybody claim that Israel is the impediment to peace, please tell them we would give back the presumed desired lands except the Arabs want all of the lands and have refused numerous offers including one granted only because President Clinton claimed that Yasser Arafat had agreed to the terms thus Ehud Barak agreed to those same exact terms and Arafat stalked from the next morning’s meeting rejecting the very offer he made the night before without even a counter and within six weeks began the second intifada which claimed over a thousand Israeli lives and is what led to the construction of the wall and fence which ended the stream of suicide bombings as it took going through a checkpoint to enter Israel thus no more bombings. Ever since that went into effect the PA has pressed the United States Presidents to demand Israel open the passage into Israel and remove the racist checkpoints as they are demeaning. I have to go through a checkpoint to take a train, a checkpoint to enter a mall, a checkpoint to watch the Purim Parade in my town, a checkpoint to listen to candidates speak, a checkpoint to enter the municipal building to pay my water bill, a checkpoint to enter the post office where many other transactions other than packages and stamps take place, a checkpoint to enter the department store downtown and a checkpoint to visit my father in the hotel when he visits. Israelis have to go through checkpoints because of Palestinian terror attacks because one can never be too careful. Just to put this into perspective, with the entirety of Israeli public on alert and all who are licensed for weapons carry taking their firearm with them as added safety for all; the totals for the past three Jewish calendar months, that is exactly one-hundred-eighty days (three thirty-day months) are twenty-two dead, two-hundred-fifty-two injured which does not count for the numbers of people suffering from rock assaults whose cars were damaged but the passengers were unharmed and often these are unreported, and unsuccessful stabbing attacks where the terrorist was unsuccessful and upon meeting determined or armed opposition fled and thus going unreported, yet in each such case there is still the mental strains and stresses unimaginable by those never facing combat or similar situations and may they continue to be spared such horrors.

 

Tell them that just because the media does not cover the terror and violence launched and perpetrated upon Israelis, all Israelis including Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Bahá’í, Buddhists and of course Jews has not abated, it has simply returned to the whatever is the latest ‘norm,’ that is all. Currently that is as many as three stabbings per day, up to three cars used as an assault vehicle rammed into bus stops and other such gathering places, as many as seven rockets out of Gaza each month, and various other inconveniences perpetrated on Israelis dressed too Jewish such as spitting, slamming shoulder as passing, curses, tripping and other insults and degradations as what would be considered a major incident if it were to happen to a Muslim in almost any European or other western nation and the entire world would cease rotating until the dog who perpetrated such an insult was brought to shame, such being perpetrated on predominately Jews in Israel (or most of the rest of the world) is nothing to get excited about as it is no big deal. The only reason the last Gaza War did not produce thousands of dead Israelis was the Iran Dome and its over ninety percent interception rate. Even then there would have been thousands potentially killed in one single attack except for the hand of Hashem, praised be, as the Iron dome had missed three times and it was a puff of the wind between total calms which pushed the rocket into the sea instead of striking the central business center of Tel Aviv where likely thousands would have died and at least one if not as many as five towering skyscrapers could have been felled causing untold carnage. Read about this miracle here. Israel is not an impediment to peace and had been an impediment to an outright military attack by Islam on Europe, but that is no longer a worry as Europe invited the invasion in upon itself and that is beyond Israeli abilities as wonderful as they are. One cannot save those not wishing to be saved, but at least let those who choose sanity to retain that sanity and do not impose your insanity upon them. If Europe desires fifty-million Islamic “refugees,” we will not prevent them taking all that they desire; we just desire to miss out on that deal which only leaves more for Europe to take, a mere drop in the bucket as the tap in Europe for Islamic immigration unchecked and without any restrictions, just walk right in. May they tread lightly upon your culture.

The Israeli Political Class Image Problem

 

Before getting to the meat of the article I would like to praise something Israel not only got right, carries it off without any hitches and actually accomplished their objective. The article that put a smile on my face and a song in my heart was Secret operation in Syria to rescue last remaining Jewish family. Their mission was to rescue the last Jewish family in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The one thing Israel does extremely well repeatedly throughout her history starting with being the recipient of the European Jews who largely were expelled penniless and then over the next decade had to receive the Jews from across MENA (Muddle East and North Africa) who were also largely relieved from their wealth as well. There was the raid on Entebbe Airport in Uganda and others throughout the years, some which may eventually be covered in books after those involved feel comfortable and the government also allows information to be released. There was one error made but that was by officials after they reached Israel which will hopefully be remedied successfully and all necessary actions be completed as successfully as this operation. The admission on there uncomforting decision being made immediately public is another credit to Israel for having the openness just as was obvious in our historic record which even revealed the slightest mistakes and flaws in the greatest heroes in the Bible, even Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Moses had their flaws revealed even if they were not necessary to the story and solely for the sake of honest recounting.

 

The idea that there are a noticeable number of our current leaders having flaws in their performances and even some in characters, all of which prevent programs which fully reflect Torah and the rest of our laws, such as not settling all the land Hashem promised which all reflects as believable, just as the greatest Jews in Torah and the Bible were flawed though nowhere near with the rate, consistency and severity as our leaders today. Often Israeli leaders appear to be more concerned with their image out in the rest of the world than in performing their supposed assigned task of representing the people they gave promises in exchange for their votes. What their actions are responsible for is made evident in the video below where an English interviewer constantly jumps to interrupt Naftali Bennett shoving the words from virtually every source possible down Mr. Bennett cherry picking and going through these quotes almost without an actual pause to allow Bennett to speak his mind. It becomes obvious that the interviewer chose Naftali Bennett in order to make the point that Israelis are conflicted and that they have no answers to the accusations from the world at large and there are quotes from throughout the range from Prime Ministers to Shin Bet retired commanders, to Presidents all who have given lip service to the two state solution. The entire ambush was to make the record show that almost every Israeli who has been or is in power has supported the formation of the two state solution and that any Israeli who does not support such is a racist, worthless, genocidal lunatics who have no answers and are incapable of even completing a single cogent response. The fact that the interviewer jumped the microphone almost immediately after Naftali Bennett began to express a thought not permitting his putting thought to word to be completed as doing so would have presented a second opinion but that was not the intent, the intent was to ambush Bennett and short rift any pro-Israel record or argument and simply was to spend the entirety of the ugly interview in order to present quotes and other international demands or voted at the General Assembly as valid arguments which are so obviously valid that any refutation must necessarily be pounced upon and denied access to the airwaves.

 

 

 

 

The interview begs the question of what are the most obvious and pressing problems and fatal challenges which make the two state solution impossible to implement. The easiest fruit is to simply quote Mahmoud Abbas speaking in Geneva to a special session called just to give him a platform to denounce Israel for not relenting the lands they have occupied for the last sixty-seven years. We covered this on November 3, 2015, And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel replete with the necessary math and the realization of the real intentions and ideas which drive Abbas in his quest against all of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas will be credited with having slipped and actually meaning 1967 and not sixty-seven years ago and thus it will be brushed off as Abbas having a senior moment and misspeaking. The reality indicates Mahmoud Abbas finally spoke the truth in a location where he was recorded and the world could finally bear witness to the bald truth, but the world does not want to hear the truth any more than the interviewer would allow the truth to even be stated during a recorded faux-interview we depicted above. Abbas has often made similar remarks, as had Yasser Arafat before him, when speaking to the Arabs in person or via radio or television. This has also been the central argument which began when the two men with the assistance of the KGB formed the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in 1964; a full three years before the Six Day War which should get many people to realize the vacuous line of reasoning that now says that the sole aim is to retrieve the lands lost in the Six Day War which the resonating call heard at all too many protests, especially on campuses across the Western World, where it is often chanted, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be Free!” This slogan leaves no room for Israel and is deadly accurate as to the sole peace Abbas desires to grant Israel, a genocidal cleansing of all of Israel and her Jews declaring such as the second Shoah while threatening to murder the remaining Jews of the world as they join the growing call of the soldiers of Islam to awaken from their slumbers and bring about their blessed age by slaughtering the Jews and all non-Muslims. Their description of these times has the rocks and trees calling to them saying according to Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

 

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

 

That brings us to the root of the problem. There are numerous Israelis who believe that if only Israel would surrender the right combination of lands and would be sufficiently subservient to the Arabs that they would be satisfied and allow the Israelis to live in peace. They believe that should Israelis just act in a particular manner that they would find some happy magic formula which would allow for Jews to live in peace and everybody would live happily ever after. These Jews would also call for the planting of groves of babble trees as they would shelter us from Islamic violence. Never mind that suggestion being defeatist and leading to every Jew needing to plant their own Gharqad, tree or set of such trees. Doing so ignores all the violence which accompanies any sign of Israeli weakness which is launched whenever the Arabs believe they have seen weakness and even the slightest bit of defeatism as they allocate such actions as a lack of resolve by the Jews and simply another reasoning to apply pressure to gain an even larger surrender eventually leading to the complete defeat of the Jews and their desired goal of chasing the Jews from all of what they see as solely their lands. One can trace ever increase in the levels of violence to a defeatist statement which promised simply another surrender in the face of their violence. The status-quo on the Temple Mount is another example of Jews backtracking when faced with Arab insistence or actions which are the initial claims that the lands do not belong to the Jews and we must therefore surrender further lands as we have to be getting close to the magic formula where some form of equilibrium will be reached. Such statements are defeatist on their own formulae as they recommend some willingness for Jews to surrender more of Eretz Yisroel in order to attain a balance which even on its face proves does not exist. One cannot blame the violence on Israeli actions as often the violence follows words which feed the psyche that believes the Jews to be interlopers unworthy of any claim to these Arab conquered lands as all non-Muslims were effectively removed over the millennia and that it is only Arab loss of faith and face that the Jews were permitted because of perceived Arab weakness.

 

The truth be told, there does exist a formula for existential peace with the Arabs which is really not much of peace as it is a surrender. The peace which Israeli leaders appears to have infected their thinking when they achieve high office or recent retirement is that if only all the land were to be surrendered followed by pleading for the Arabs to pretty please allow us even a postage stamp sized piece of land that then all would be well. These masters of surrender never permit themselves or others to realize the basic truth that the Arabs who are dedicated to terrorism and dealing in death will continue to be the basis of Arab education turning out radicalized teachers from the main Arab factions, Hamas and Fatah. The reality is that there is only a slight difference between Fatah and Hamas and of these two there can only be one in the end, and that will be whichever of the two claims proves to unseat the Israeli claims more completely. The Fatah is mostly nationalist and secular while Hamas is Islamist religious based resistance. Eventually Hamas will win the struggle between these two entities for the hearts and minds as their argument is far more persuasive and the stronger of the two attitudes at their base. Furthermore, the religious fanatics are far more committed to their foes defeat and would never have given even a single line of validation through their negotiations. These religious true believers fuel the fanaticism which leads to homicidal suicide bombings and other forms of terror producing mass casualties which have proven in the past to have gained contrition and erosion of the Jewish positions and thus reinforce the religious fanaticism over the nationalist position.

 

The two Arab foes, Hamas and Fatah, have used these models most effectively with the nationalists pressing the idea that one last concession will bring the entirety of the conflict to a close and while this is being debated in the Knesset and then the following of the fanaticism starts entering a series of violent acts which removes any thought of a peaceful turning over of a limited piece of land and having the level of acts to be deescalated. The reality is that timidity only reinforces the Arab feelings that a complete victor is at hand. This cycle of promise offered, snatched away due to violence, the offer now part of status-quo, new demands of even greater amounts of land followed by greater violence escalating as necessary to force Israeli surrenders. There is only one way to end this slow retreat and that is to refuse to retreat any further and start annexing lands enjoined by the one thing which scares the Arabs the most, continue to call for more surrender. It was Jewish willingness to surrender Jewish rights upon the Temple Mount to the point now that Jews are restricted from visiting the Temple Mount in groups larger than at most a dozen Jews. This permits maximum use of the screamers, biters, and other riotous behavior closing down the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitations. These bowings to Islamic supremacy at our most holy of sites has led directly to Arabic prayers being the sole praying permitted thus refusing praise of Hashem and replacing them with praises of Allah on the Temple Mount with any Jew thought to be praying now resulting in their arrest, full investigative hearings and too often closure of the Temple Mount to Jews entering this holy place at all due to Islamic rioting. It is the permitting of such fanaticisms that has placed Israel in the defense world-wide and behind the BDS campaign which could be nipped at its roots if the Jews would react to such limitations by broadening the personal freedoms for Jews and all others at this holiest of holy places and anything else is purely inviting trouble and an eventual Jewish defeat.

 

 

Backsliding will empower Arab demands and encourage Arab violence. Only exercising our rights and exercising our claims to the lands will end the Arab attempts at supremacy within Israel and in forcing the Jews into Dhimmitude which in the end will bring on the death of the Jewish State replacing it totally by an Arab State in which Jews are Dhimmis taking a subservience to Arab Muslims or facing death, neither of which is acceptable. The first and most important step Israel must start with is speaking our known truths and acting upon them at the same time. This must be followed by our annexation of the lands; something the Arabs will understand and bring them to offer actual compromises and not simply a line of demands from the Jews of Israel. These demands are a direct result of timidity and talk of an approaching compromise as nothing ends any hope of an actual settlement faster than negative public opinion which can take a reasoned and proud Zionist and make him appear weak and ineffectual in an interview where he should have insisted he be permitted to talk and not simply be a prop for the reading of a list of ignorant and an unproductive outing where the Zionists again appeared cowed. Our cause would have been better supported had Naftali Bennett demanded to be heard and when shouted down once again and interrupted after two or three words have threatened to end the interview leaving the British moderator without a foil which made his arguments, his blatant anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel stances more believable than had he been left with an empty studio. I realize that Naftali Bennett is a great supporter of Zionism but when you are being so used one must take actions other than polite demanding your time to express your vision and not just sit there and take insulting breaking in on ones answer every time such that the interviewer had more microphone time than did his guest which is always a sad state of affairs. This interview was an even worse showing than the last Republican debate, another instance where the rules were twisted to put on display the brilliance of the moderators rather than investigate the candidate positions. Demanding fair treatment is not rudeness but rather often a response to bullying rudeness. Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the presumed military wing of Abbas’s Fatah, lauded praises upon the terrorists who shot Israelis near Hevron this past Friday. This action was obviously taken to introduce an escalation of the Stabbing Intifada complimented already with bolder throwing at passing vehicles. Now we will be facing shooting including likely sniper fire in Jerusalem from an Arab populated hill into homes of Jews on the next hill with these shots often from a high caliber weapon so as to penetrate walls even going through two or three rooms before lodging in the other outside wall.

 

 

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade has Announced that the Stabbing Intifada is Already Complimented by Bolder Boulder Throwing at Vehicles, Using Vehicles as Battering Rams Into Bus Stops and Light Rail Station. Now There Will be Shooting and Sniper Fire in Jerusalem From Arab Controlled Hill into Jewish Homes on the Neighboring Hill. Additionally the Rioting, Especially the Friday After Prayer at Checkpoints, Will be Accented With Loud, Sharp, and Staccato Retorts of Machine Gun Fire. All This Will Now Endanger Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and even Israelis who are Muslims Without ANY Differentiation at All.
