The accusations which originate largely from Western nations, the NGOs they finance and echoed by every human rights group as well as the United Nations General Assembly, the United States State Department and its highest superior, President Barack Obama, plus the European Union and the many Arab nations and organizations are that Israel has an Apartheid society which denies Arab Palestinians there rights within Israel’s recognized sovereign territory as well as within the contested regions. Many also echo and hold fast to claims of ethnic cleansing of Arab Palestinians and even of committing genocidal persecutions against the Arab Palestinians despite all the evidence, facts, proofs and investigations which have universally proven that no such acts are in any way, shape or form a part of Israeli governance or programs and interactions with the Arab Palestinians. The claim that the Arab Palestinians not only were excluded from voting in the recent Israeli elections are absolutely ridiculous as the Arab Palestinians are not Israeli citizens nor are the for the largest part even under Israeli civil or even military control and only have their two main areas, Area A and Area B.

 

Those Areas under Arab Palestinian civil and largely security control are seldom entered by any Israeli security without first informing and receiving permission from the Arab Palestinian Authority with the sole exception of an actual pursuit of a terror suspect, and I am using the word ‘suspect’ in a very loose manner as the ‘suspect’ was witnessed performing the violent criminal assault, taking security personnel into Area B which Israeli security are permitted to enter to enforce laws in conjunction with the Arab Palestinian Authority under the Oslo Accords. The reason the Arab Palestinians have not voted since 2006 has to do with Mahmoud Abbas refusing repeatedly first in 2009 and again in 2012 and most recently last year after the formation of the unity governance agreement between Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and whatever other entities were to be included in the new and improved all-encompassing and unifying all the Arab factions into a single government unifying Gaza with their areas in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and by the agreement there were to be elections within months of the agreement. Abbas knows that should there be an election and no matter how many Gazan might refuse to back Hamas or Islamic Jihad, they are equally unlikely to support him and the vast majority of his own Fatah and Arab Palestinian Authority subjects would vote for Haniyeh from Hamas instead. Abbas realizes that as soon as he loses power and is no longer protected by the security force currently assigned to keep him alive, that his life would not be worth a single Agora let alone a Shekel and that his sole hope for survival after any elections would be to be in Tel Aviv when the final counts are delivered. That is why the Arab Palestinians have not been permitted to vote in an election for almost a decade.

 

As for the Apartheid claims, there exist approximately 1,688,600 Arab citizens of Israel which make up around 20.7% of the total population with 6,119,000 Jews making up 75.0% of which the Haredi make up 9.9% of the population numbering 750,000 and others which include Christians, Baha’I, Buddhists, Hindus and others numbering 349,700 making up 4.3% of the total population and all get to vote in Israeli election, hold office in the government, hold jobs, own businesses, own land, ride on busses and trains taking any seat they desire and any discrimination which may exist in any direction is illegal and would be investigated and adjudicated in the courts in which there are Arabs serving as judges at all levels. Probably the best two examples are Haneen Zoabi, an Arab Christian who claims to be a Palestinian and demands that Israel be replaced by Palestine and that the Jews including her fellow Ministers in the Knesset owe her thanks for her permitting them to live in her lands, and Ahmad Tibi, who served as a political advisor to Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat from 1993 to 1999 before returning to live in Israel and became a Minister in the Knesset despite his position in what can only be described as an adversarial organization as a close confidant with its founder and leader until his death, as well as Masud Ghnaim, Yousef Jabareen, Ayman Odeh, Osama Saadi, Aida Touma-Suleiman, Abd al-Hakim Hajj Yahya, Jamal Zahalka, and Zouheir Bahloul who were all part of the Arab Group which was made up of various Arab, Druze, Bedouin and other mostly minority representatives which coalition gained thirteen seats making them one of the top three groups or parties in the current Israeli government. So much for the canard that Israel denies Arabs and non-Jews the vote.

 

Now we come to the most egregious of the lies against Israel claiming the Israelis are committing ethnic cleansing or genocidal actions against the Arab Palestinians. All one need do is compare their population from one year to the next and the lie is revealed. The Arab Palestinians who are presumed to have lost their homeland to the Israeli colonizers despite their so-called ‘nation’ never ever existed nor has it ever fought the Israelis except through terrorist actions which often required IDF actions to prevent further slaughters of Israelis amongst whom Arabs, Bedouins, and Druze have suffered loss of loved ones and family members including children to these indiscriminating terrorist attacks. The main detracting and near impossible to quantify as the Arab Palestinian leadership from Fatah in Judea and Samaria denies there is any problem as also do Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza when approached on the subject of Arab Palestinians emigrating if they can find the money and the favorable situation where they are able to get out from under the despotic grasp of their governance which goes to extremes to prevent attempts to emigrate to a better life. Be these situations as they may, the graph below depicts the growth of the Arab Palestinians’ population from 2006 to 2015 depicting an increase from three-and-a-half-millions persons to four-and-a-half-million persons; a total increase of one-million persons in just nine years.

The only thing that matters once these accusations have been put to being the lies that they are is to understand the reasons behind driving these accusations, exactly what they should be viewed for being and what effects they will pose and situations they might engender even if such is actually the opposite of what they are seeking. A glaring example was made this week though the actual decision was completely off by one-hundred-eighty-degrees from the conclusion the media and world took from the decision of the United States Supreme Court. The world mistakenly took the decision to indicate that the United States does not recognize Western Jerusalem as being within the Green Line or despite that having decided that all of Jerusalem should belong to someone other than Israel and probably to the Arab Palestinians though none of that was in the actual decision. The decision handed down by the Supreme Court in their six to thee decision was that the Congress does not have the power to force an agency, in this case the State Department, to recognize and issue documents against their policy. The Supreme Court did not identify what policy leaving the decision to be a formidable and potentially sweeping decision granting greater power for the Presidency and the Cabinet agencies who now can understand themselves to be free of any Congressional oversight or subjected to directives from the Congress. This gives the Executive Branch a huge amount of added powers which may require another case to visit this decision and further define their stand thus focusing when and where these newly found authority and override ability for Executive Branch Agencies and the President himself. Ignored by the Europeans and President Obama were a few facts about Jerusalem and why Israeli Jews and hopefully other Jews will fight to retain all of Jerusalem, Especially the Old City and Temple Mount. Jerusalem is the beloved of Jews everywhere, Jews pray facing Jerusalem, the Passover Seder ends saying, “next year in Jerusalem,” and finally Psalm 137 which is also known as the Song of Babylon is all about Jerusalem and her importance which all should weigh heavily before attempting to take her from us again, the translation, as best as it can be to the Hebrew, can be seen below,

 

137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2 Upon the willows in the midst thereof we hanged up our harps.
137:3 For there they that led us captive asked of us words of song, and our tormentors asked of us mirth: ‘Sing us one of the songs of Zion.’
137:4 How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?
137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
137:6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I remember thee not; if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.
137:7 Remember, O the Lord, against the children of Edom the day of Jerusalem; who said: ‘Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.’
137:8 O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that repayeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the rock.

 

Still, the President reacted in such a manner as to imply that the Supreme Court was granting a validation on the content of the subject matter within this case and not simply the limitation on the Congress preserving authority for the President and the rest of the Executive Branch. The rest of the world went almost dizzy with glee taking this misconception and running with it claiming it implied that the Arab Palestinians had the rights to all of Jerusalem, and not Israel. Mahmoud Abbas, Saeb Erekat and Jibril Rajoub were feeling the strong vibrations as the Europeans reacted one after the other as the news of the decision and the misleading narrative made its way across Europe and then the Middle East.

 

With the Europeans leading the world in the belief that now all of Jerusalem is up for negotiations and that, as some in high places had previously whispered, all of Jerusalem could end up in Arab Palestinian hands and not just up to the Green Line or some other demarcation, there was glee giving the Arab Palestinian leadership renewed hope that they were definitely winning the battle for the hearts and minds of the world and their goal for the state of Palestine replacing all of Israel was now, more than ever, a reality which was within their grasp. Abbas and company were now assured that all they needed to do was wait and continue financing and directing the BDS movement and apply shaming force against the weak western leaders just like CEO Stephane Richard who recently made a large stir claiming that as CEO of Orange, he wished he could cut all ties and not do business with Israel as he made almost no money from their partnership with Partner Communications Company Ltd. The implication of the problem being two-fold, Orange CEO Richard had succumbed to the BDS demands and intimidation giving the BDS organizers a huge increase in their intimidation war against the world trading and recognizing Israel forcing them instead to promote the Arab Palestine regardless of the consequences and that Orange was conned or otherwise fooled as the Israelis (read Jews) had swindled him and taken unfair advantages thus forming a contract which gave Israel (again read Jews) the service virtually for free or barely paying for the service. The charge of fraudulent dealings when money is at stake finds its origins as one of the earliest of charges leveled against Jews. This was the theme in Shakespeare when he wrote the play The Merchant of Venice where one of the main characters was the Jewish money-lender, Shylock, who adds a dark and ominous condition that the loan must be repaid in three months or Shylock will exact a pound of flesh. In the end when the loan was not paid Shylock is told by the judge he can have the pound of flesh as long as he doesn’t draw blood, as it is against the law to shed a Christian’s blood. The rest leaves Shylock a broken man forced to even abandon his faith and adopt Christianity. There were shades of the accusation of Orange being the victim of the sly dealings as those with Shylock in the Orange franchise to the Israeli company Partner Communications.

 

The Arab Palestinians and the Arab League nations which assist with the BDS financing which is oddly done completely through cash in hand payments thus avoiding any large and traceable bank accounts or the image of a large organized juggernaut which it is with international tendrils reaching to the corners of the Earth and four continents, especially on numerous major university campuses and gaining footholds in countless more. The cash is delivered using the Arab Palestinian Authority, or Palestine, embassies, consulates, representative offices and other arranged meetings where organizers, activists and other people in leadership or permanent positions will take turns flying even into Israel to get their funds directly from Ramallah if there is no other means through the institutions established on every continent to supply the needed cash. It is estimated that there are literally hundreds of millions and potentially a great deal more invested in making the BDS movement appear spontaneous and a grass roots movement with little if any organizations when in fact there is an international web of tangled and overlapping organizers, activists, agitators, transportation dispatchers, treasurers who often are responsible for tens of millions to be paid to others often monthly. These activities are paid for mostly with the Western funds provided the Arab Palestinians Authority through direct funding of the Authority by Europeans and the United States as well as funds siphoned from UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) which is United Nations funded and directly funded again largely by the United States, Canada and Europe. The BDS will likely be hitting the campuses again next year and attempting to spread their seminal event and climax of their anti-Israel vilifications, Israel Apartheid Week (though some campuses have been known to continue events through an entire month and often there are threats made against Jewish students, especially any thought to be sympathetic towards Israel or religious and practicing Jews. These BDS organized extravaganzas often spin off anti-Semitic actions, with Jewish students often being fearful about crossing the campus, even to get to their classes, due to the difficulties they can face from those agitators who are paid to start and fuel the arguments and confrontations with Jews and any pro-Israel individuals.

 

The BDS assaults are but one front Israel and her supporters are facing. There is a serious drive by many, if not most, of the European nations which outwardly talk of their relations, trade, good relations, appreciations and open friendship they keep and respect with Israel while behind the scenes they are spending billions each culminating when added to individual and NGO expenditures funds in the tens of trillions annually all for efforts to delegitimize, isolate and disestablish Israel. One of these efforts executed with the assistance of the Arab League is to place measures for United Nations to debate in the General Assembly and occasionally it is sent to the Security Council for action where often the United State is forced to use their veto the measure calling for the United Nations to rescind their authorization establishing Israel, which assisted, they claim validated, the formation of Israel and without such Israel would be dissolved as it would no longer have legal authority to exist.

 

This is where some of the new blood in high positions in the Prime Minister Cabinet with this new and hopefully powerfully nationalistic, Zionist and as politically incorrect as possible making them willing to talk religion and Torah and Bible and the a one-thousand-year history right here in Judea and Samaria and the Galilee and the Negev all before the year zero on the calendar prevalent throughout Western society, the Gregorian calendar. That’s correct, over a thousand years before there even existed the Gregorian or Christian calendar or the Islamic calendar. When the Buddha and Confucius were teaching their revelations and philosophy we were building the Second Temple, that’s correct, the Second Temple which we built after our exile in Babylonia. The Five Books of Moses, Torah is its actual name and it is an accurate history of the Jewish people’s lives after Abraham left his home and traveled to the place that Hashem would show him. The history does not end there as the remainder of the Old Testament as Christians refer to it and simply the Bible to us. The Bible covers the history from when Moses has handed the position of leader to Joshua who led them into Israel and he was in turn followed by successions of Judges and Kings with numerous Prophets strewn in as the need became necessary, which was to say frequently. The stories of the Bible were actual events which, if the anthropologists were to be honest, would have proven the Jews and Israel’s rights to the lands here, especially Judea and Samaria. Not long ago at the dig site where it was believed that the giant Goliath was born they found a somewhat oversized bowl or mug which had engraved in it the name Goliath. This find was claimed to be of absolutely no proof of the story about the fight between David and Goliath had not been proven and the utensil was not even guaranteed evidence that the name Goliath was used at that time or any other excuse you can think of including multiple universes. Sometimes it seems like wherever one looks there is some reason that something which obviously confirms Jewish claims from the Bible, Torah or whatever that there will be skeptics not only dismissing the find but also making some comment about how Jews are always trying to make everything about them. I’m really sorry to have to point this out but except for three or four cities, Jericho, Jerusalem, Akko and Shechem the rest of the places found in Judea and Samaria as well as the Galilee and Negev, these finds are likely from the history of the Jews even if the remnants are smacked hard into the bedrock as many of our places were planted right onto that bedrock. The seemingly never-ending, persistent and ugly reality of many of these denials simply comes from the modern age’s determinations that claim science has proven so much, we will soon have so much figured out and formulated that there will be no room for the existence of spiritual and omnipotent deities. Their truth claims that they can be sure there was no progenitor who caused our universe formation and that science will provide the answers. I have found that the more you know, the more you realize that you do not know. If that is not true then you are not seeking all the answers. But the real reason that the finds here are often minimized is because it does not serve supporting the Arab Palestinians as they are the leftist cause-celeb and that makes everything in their favor to be considered perfect and their every claim and complaint obviously valid and must be tended to immediately, and especially if it might assist with the destruction of Israel.

 

There is reasoning behind the insidious plotting to destroy Israel and replace it with what the world knows will be a failed state because the world would rather have a failed Arab State than a functioning and successful Jewish State. The desire is to destroy the Jewish State and by destroying Israel they believe, and probably rightfully, that they will have destroyed the Jews themselves. They will suffer the few thousand remnants in their enclaves or they may even hunt down the last person with a Jew anywhere in their last seven generations as the blessings are passed forward seven generations. The hate that we survived that first and best chance to wipe Israel from the map infuriates so many Europeans that the hatred makes for strange bedfellows. When British officers from World War II join together with Nazis from World War II and attempt to wipe the Jewish State from the world’s stage before her opening curtain has even completely opened, then you know there is a real hatred out in the world. The anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism are two sides of that old coin known all too well, anti-Semitism. It really is that simple. There is a reason behind the claims that Israel is using ethnic cleansing to purge the Arab Palestinians and that Israel is resorting to genocide against the Arab Palestinian People, and they call them a people by leaving off Arab and inventing something which is a lie and a deceit and as that is their initial truth, then all that follows is simply something to prop up that lie. The ethnic cleansing and genocide claims are made because even the most ardent anti-Semite desiring to swim in Jewish blood when Israel had bled to death knows that such will not be the result of this charade. They are completely aware that they are playing with millions of lives and their attitude is simply cavalier as they could not care less how many they send to their deaths if it simply wounds Israel severely and made her pay. They are aware that eventually the Arabs Palestinians will believe their propaganda about how weak they have made Israel and how this is the time to strike, and strike the Arab Palestinians will and initially they will gain advantage but in the end they will most likely be slaughtered. My dearest hope is that only the most ardent Arab Palestinian anti-Semitic, anti-Zionistic, anti-Israel haters will end up paying the price for hate, there is always a price eventually coming due for hatred and this one promises to be a very costly price. When that day arrives the Europeans will be ready for one of two alternatives, the first is their celebration on the real ethnic cleansing of six-million plus Jews or the regret and finger-pointing calling out Israel as having finally been made guilty of the ethnic cleansing and genocidal deaths of the proud Arab Palestinians who were killed because Israel used disproportional force, because Israel refused to die to satisfy their blood-lust, to allow them their final solution. We need to tell them and those whom they influence that Israel refuses to just roll over and die, Israel refuses to go gently into that dark night, Israel will bask in the morning after’s sun and tend our wounds but we will not go gently into the dying light of the night.

Turkey Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu made some interesting comments in reference to the Paris Rally to memorialize the freedoms of thought and expressions and the liberties and freedoms which form much of the basis for Western establishments and for which Islamic radical terrorists assaulted and murdered the staff of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in which a dozen people paid for such freedoms and liberties with their lives. So, let us first give some of the relative quotes from Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu made on the rally and its themes where he stated, “It is a message to the whole world that everyone must confront the threat of terror.” So far, so good. He continued, “We would expect the same sensitivities to be shown to attacks on mosque or Islamophobia.” We can agree completely on the expectations that should a similar assault be perpetrated on a Mosque that this would be an act of terrorism and equally contemptible and demand the same reaction as against the attackers of the magazine Charlie Hebdo’s offices. As far as the “Islamophobia” we would require a definition but probably would depend on the form of such “Islamophobia” took, if it were nonviolent then things start to come under the reasons the Charlie Hebdo’s offices were attacked. Moving on he was quoted, “Turkey’s stance is principled and we will keep up this attitude. Turkey has the same values around the world as far as terror is concerned. There can be no double standards.” Yes, this might be agreeable depending on your definition of terror which is coming next I would expect. The Prime Minister obliged when he pointed to “state terrorism” against the Palestinians and in Syria. One can only assume that Prime Minister Davutoglu was referring to the recent comments made by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s comments which slammed Europeans criticizing of Turkish assaults on media outlets which signaled deteriorating press freedoms which in a Reuters report having indicated his saying they should instead try to find a solution for the increasing Islamophobia in Europe. President Erdogan has been quoted stating, “We are not Europe’s scapegoat. We are definitely not a country that Europe can point its finger at and scold. Instead of criticizing us, Europe should find a solution to increasing racism and Islamophobia.” As an example of such horrific crimes which were obvious Islamophobic in their origin he cited the German city of Dormagen, where ultra-nationalists drew Nazi signs on the walls of a mosque which was under construction.

 

The common theme here is the reference to “Islamophobia” and its being of racist origins which perhaps should be further investigated and include in that the reference to “state terrorism” against the Palestinians and in Syria. The easiest target is that Islamophobia is racist. What race is Islamophobia targeting? It cannot be Arabs as there are Arab Druze, Arab Jews, Arab Christians, Arab Hindus, Arab Buddhists, Arab Zaidi, Arab Zoroastrianians and undoubtedly other religions, so Islamophobia is not against Arabs due to Arabs practicing only Islam. If we look at Islam itself there are many differing peoples who practice Islam including people of Turkish backgrounds which are separate from Arabs thus Islamophobia cannot be considered racism accurately, but for argument’s sake we will equate it with racism. Granted, the example given by President Erdogan of painted Nazi symbols on the sides of a Mosque under construction is contemptible and those who perpetrated such a crime, and that would be a crime in the West, should be found and arrested for trial. The crime would be defacing private property and the case would revolve around personal ownership and the defacing their property and not as Islamophobic. So we agree such an act is a crime just not a crime because it was a Mosque but because it was private property. We would treat such crimes equally had they painted the symbols on a church, synagogue or a bookstore or tailors’ shop. So we agree on the act being of criminal intent but we differ on the crime itself, we see it as defacing property and they see it as a crime against Islam and that being the ultimate offense.

 

Finally, the reference to “state terrorism” against the “Palestinians and in Syria” is the manner of condemning Israel when utilized by Turkish officials as well as their allies in Iran and Hezballah. Turkey is the nation which claims that the attempt by IHH to use a flotilla around the Mavi Marmara to break the legally recognized Gaza blockade and the subsequent confrontation with Israeli troops as an Israeli aggression on the world and particularly an offense against Turkey gives a reference to the lack of objectivity on all items concerning Israel. Where does Israel fit in the reference to “state terrorism” against the “Palestinians and in Syria” come in? Turkey has claimed numerous times that Israel is backing Syrian Dictator Bashir al-Assad with intelligence information and other tactical intelligence as well as interventions by Israeli fighter aircraft. That is where Turkey pretends that Israel is involved while Turkey has always claimed that Israel is oppressing the Palestinians Arabs and is an Apartheid State despite every piece of evidence countering such accusations. I do not blame Turkey alone for many of these accusations as they are made by numerous peoples from all points on the planet, which does not necessarily make the accusations valid. These references are simply Turkish politicians and spokespeople’s way of bringing Israel into the discussion as to them doing so simply makes their claims valid and beyond reproach. Unfortunately for the all it does is reinforce the fact that their claims may lie in their foremost delusions which taint virtually every action they take both diplomatically around the world and domestically within their borders. My bet is if one were to give the Turkish government proof that Charlie Hebdo magazine had also been satirical about other religions and gave them examples of Charlie Hebdo cartoons spoofing and criticizing Christianity and Judaism that they would use the cartoons on Judaism and Israel in their own publications, that is the length of their hypocrisy and depravity when it comes to everything Israel. What makes this even more ludicrous is when considering that Turkey is a member of NATO (why is beyond our wildest imaginations) and are technically supporting the West against ISIS (pronounced is-is as in the Bill Clinton famous quote, it all depends on what the meaning of is is) while simultaneously allowing weapons, terrorists, troops and other support to cross into Syria in support of ISIS, duplicity is thy name Turkey.

 

From both men’s statements I can only gather that they believe that Islam deserves, or demands, a special treatment against any and all negative references or comments and this preference should be applied solely to Islam and not to other religions. This brings us to the main point of contention, namely that Islam is a special religion which must be protected as more sacred than any other religion and that Islam must be protected from all negative references while those practicing Islam must receive special considerations, especially if their actions were against infidels or protecting the name of Islam against the unbelievers. Well, if one believes in freedom of religion or even to have no religion, then not exactly my Turkish friends, I may call you friends or does my being an infidel make such impossible. When President Erdogan references that Turkey would apply the same rules the world over he is not professing equality as what he is applying is Islamic supremacy the world over and Islamic law the world over and not equality of any manner. President Erdogan would be applying the same applications the world over much in the same way that the Communists desired to apply the same rules and were consistent the world over or the way the Mongols attempted to apply the same rules the world over or the Romans or Greeks before them. Conquering the world for Allah is not spreading freedom in any way shape or form. Unfortunately we cannot honestly agree that Islamophobia is a crime provided that one simply objects to Islam in a nonviolent and nondestructive manner and their objections to Islam are carried out without breaking the law or another person’s right to practice Islam in a peaceable manner. Islam should be accorded the exact same protection as is any other religion or philosophy. Plainly put, Islam is not above any or all other religions, it must be equal in how it is treated to the treatment of all other religions, period.

 

Then there was one additional comment which quoted French President Francois Hollande’s statement that “these fanatics (Said Kouachi, Cherif Kouachi, Hamyd Mourad, and Amedy Coulibaly) have nothing to do with Muslim religion” and according to Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu that is of “utmost importance”. I must report to the honorable Prime Minister of Turkey as well as to all those other Imams, rulers of Islamic countries and other misguided Western leaders including those making such statements from my own country that the fact that these miscreants acted violently in the name of Islam is of the “utmost importance” and no amount of denials can alter that fact. Their claims of having “avenged the Prophet” referencing their Prophet Mohammad; and their cries of “Allahu Akbar” were references to Allah as the greatest of gods were most definitely directly related to how these individuals interpreted and understood Islam and is exactly how they were taught Islam is supposed to act to such offenses as were committed by the writers and cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo. To claim that these criminals were not committing their crimes in the name of Islam and that Islam never condones acts of violence would be to claim that the professing and statements of Imam Yusuf al-Qaradawi are not of Islam when he calls for the killing or eradication of Jews and the bringing of the whole world under Islam by persuasion or by the sword are not professing the tenets of Islam. J’accuse, I accuse you, Prime Minister Davutoglu and President Erdogan, of practicing Taqiyya, practicing dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling, pre-emptively blocking or fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

Yehuda Glick will likely be branded as a right wing extremist, a fanatically religious extremist, anti-Palestinian, an impediment to peace, a Temple Mount extremist demanding this area held holy by three major religions be restricted for only Jews, a heretic who is setting the Middle East on fire and virtually any lie they can believably attempt to sell to make his assassination attempt appear to be deserved. Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick was not any of these things, he was a man who advocated for religious freedom for the Temple Mount and to permit everybody to pray and worship as they see fit without fear of arrest or being banned from visiting the Temple Mount simply to satisfy the Islamic Waqf which is governed from Amman, Jordan. The Islamic Waqf enforces the restriction allowing solely Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount and forbids even the carrying or wearing of religious items on the Temple Mount as they could offend Muslim sensitivities. For his efforts to establish freedom of religion for all at one of the most universal religious locations on Earth Yehuda Glick was shot three times in the torso and lies in intensive care awaiting prayed for stabilization sufficient to permit further surgeries to mend the torn and punctured organs. Yehuda Glick needs the prayers of the world now as all the surgeons and physicians were able to accomplish was to control his bleeding, both internal and external, and stabilize him at the cusp between life and death as of this writing. The truth is the fight which Yehuda Glick struggle against placed his life on the line as he saw the real importance and full implications of his fight as it is the struggle to safeguard the right of religions other than Islam to exist in this world and be regarded as having equal rights and equal space. He was fighting on a significant though small scale of the war for the survival of Judaism and Christianity against the hegemonic and exclusionary threats from Islam, particularly extremist Islam such as the attitude that only Islamic prayers be allowed on the Temple Mount today, and in Jerusalem later and eventually, should Islamic active leaders who hold the positions of power have their way, having Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto and any religion other than Islam or even those who claim no religious preference from being forced into Islam or face death by the sword as commanded by the Quran and Sharia.

 

What was the most disgusting reality which has been proven today has been the lack of concern or even mention on much of the mainstream media and political talk shows about this attempted assassination in the heart of Jerusalem which was the first actual shots in the war for the rights to have any religious freedom in Jerusalem or face Jerusalem being made the third Islamic holy city after Mecca and Medina and like them becoming forbidden place for any other than Muslims. The struggle for dominion over the Temple Mount is the central struggle for Jerusalem and eventually all of Israel and then Europe and the Americas and then the remainder of the world. This is the fight which animated Yehuda Glick and the driving force which will hopefully also allow him with the help of G0d to not just survive this horrid assault but to thrive and return to his life’s quest with renewed vigor and even more intensity, if such is even possible. May the assassination attempt on Temple Mount activist and realist win him thousands of supporters for every minute his life straddles the cusp between life and death and may the new support for his struggle also benefit his fight to live and once again be with his family and friends and return to walk and pray freely and openly on the Temple Mount. May his vision of a Synagogue at the least and the rebuilt Temple as must be his dream as it is mine and millions of Jews throughout the world as we have held that desire sacred over the centuries since the Roman sacking of the Temple and Jerusalem the year 70.

 

This wanton act of hatred has disturbed me greatly even though I have never had the privilege or pleasure to have met and shared a discussion concerning his dream and life’s driving quest. The respect I have for the public effort and stand Yehuda Glick has pressed for all of his recent life is boundless which makes the lack of concern or even mention his attempted assassination has caused beyond Israel. There has been no denunciation from United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the one leader who can always be counted amongst those who will denounce Israel using the slightest of force to end rioting and rock assaults upon Israeli commuters along any Israeli road which passes by numerous Arab neighborhoods around Jerusalem and beyond. There has been no concern from European Union Foreign Secretary the Lady Catherine Ashton who routinely condemns Israel. No wishes for a recovery or concerns coming from heads of state from every corner of the globe. There has been nothing from President Obama or Secretary of State Kerry other than the unnamed administration source according to Jeffrey Goldberg who slurred Prime Minister Netanyahu as coward using the most egregious and base slang terminology.

 

There were comments from Jordan’s Islamic affairs minister, Hayel Daoud, who accused Israel of “state terrorism” for closing the Temple Mount for a few hours immediately after the assassination attempt which occurred in the relative proximity. Then there was the Arab street across the Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem who danced in the streets handing out sweets and candies celebrating the attempted assassination of a Jewish leader. Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas released a press release denouncing Israel for the instigating of violence and destructions on the Temple Mount and throughout Jerusalem, a usual action taken by Abbas every time there are any acts which might reflect poorly on Palestinians should they receive coverage such as the assassination attempt. This tactic has proven very effective as any articles begin with the Abbas denunciation of the Israelis and paints any rioting or acts of violence as honest reaction to whatever Abbas was referencing. There is no verification of Abbas and his charges but they are transmitted around the world before any coverage contrary to the blame Israel complaints from Abbas reach the media making it always to appear as if Israel is reacting to claims against their phantasmal extremist acts. There was the statement from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu who stated, “I would like to send my best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Yehuda Glick, who is now fighting for his life. I would also like to commend the ISA and the Israel Police for quickly solving this act of terrorism.” His congratulations were for their response and attempt to arrest the assassin who had attempted to murder Yehuda Glick who resisted arrest shooting at IDF troops supporting the arrest who returned fire killing the terrorist. Prime Minister Netanyahu further commented, “A few days ago, I said that we were facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas nom de guerre) who said that Jews must be prevented from going up to the Temple Mount by any means possible. I still have not heard from the international community so much as one word of condemnation for these inflammatory remarks. The international community needs to stop its hypocrisy and take action against inciters, against those who try to change the status quo.” The Prime Minister could have continued with the same criticism over the silence of the international community of nations, leaders and other political and ambassadorial persons and the busybodies who regularly are very vocal decrying any and every act from Israel. The silence is deafening and reveals the reality that as far as the world is concerned the life of leading Israelis and possibly even of any Jews has no worth nor generates any level of concern though every level of scorn is permissible at any time for any reason. This has clarified much as the world could not care less that a leading Temple Mount activist and founder of a front line human and religious rights organization, LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount, who was obviously targeted for nationalistic reasons, a polite wording which means terrorist act steeped in a deep and hot hatred which is a direct result from the instigations and defamations and plain outright calls for the murder of Jews for the supposed crime of breathing which is repeated daily throughout Palestinians society including from Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian leadership from Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others, in textbooks paid for by the European Union, United States, United Nations and European governments, media, cartoons and other children’s programming, youth groups and throughout the societal structures. Perhaps from this unfortunately angry and probably not so well written article there might start a ripple carrying the information that a man who simply journeyed through life exerting every ounce of his energy in attempts to establish a Jewish presence and equal rights for all religions on the Temple Mount with an emphasis for Christians and Jews who suffer most directly from the Islamic oppression being enforced by the Waqf appointed by Jordanian leadership as part of an agreement whereby Israel took steps to guarantee Islamic equal rights on the Temple Mount and has resulted in solely Islamic religious rights on the Temple Mount, the indifference must stop here. Below is an excerpt from Yehuda Glick’s final speech he delivered before leaving the Begin Center and being shot almost fatally by an Islamic Jihad terrorist.
