What Happens When Islamist Extremist Terror Faces Vlad the Invader?

 

Apparently there were no newspapers, radio news or television news and nobody was much interested in the Chechen war of terrorism against Russia which caused troubles for the Russian government as nobody apparently knew how to fight this threat and remain unfazed, untouched, unshamed and completely oblivious to any and all the negative condemnations and accusations of human rights abuses, war crimes and negative fallout from the necessary acts which would prove effective once applied. But where to find a human who had nerves of steel, that glazed look in their eyes, and a stone cold heart who would be capable of rivaling Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, also known as Vlad Drăculea and lovingly by the peoples of Romania, Vlad the Impaler. The year was 1999 and the Russians found their man, a lieutenant colonel from the KGB back in the day stationed in Dresden, East Germany from 1985 to 1990. He was assigned a cover as a translator and interpreter while assigned to the KGB’s Directorate S with the other operatives who were actually agents using undercover identities. Putin worked in coordination with the infamous and often cruel Stasi Secret Police, who were often too obvious, where he assisted in selecting potential and approaching with attempts to recruit foreigners for assignments to carry out espionage for the Soviet Union. The fall of the Berlin wall and collapse of the Soviet Union would have left a lesser man in a desperate state but Vladimir Putin simply burned the KGB’s files, attempted to contact his similarly desperate seniors in Moscow who surprisingly were not in the office any longer as they too were scrambling to establish a new identity and position in the rapidly morphing government and governance. Putin landed himself in Leningrad and assumed position with the International Affairs section of Leningrad State University. Then he was chosen probably in part because he was expendable, but he proved to be far more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose, he became the man of the hour and took the Chechen problem and smashed it head-on. Putin applied the full force of the Russian military leveling entire neighborhoods and eventually leveled most of the Chechen Capital City of Grozny and caused severe damage throughout Chechnya and severely disabled the framework, networks, coordination and effectiveness and when the Second Chechen War concluded they wrote their new Constitution which declared their being a republic within the Russian Federation and the terror problems with Chechen rebels have virtually stopped and Putin gained the love and admiration of the Russian people. His go to any lengths and make the losses of the and effects of the conflict so horrific for the enemies that they completely concede disputed territory and avoided any further conflict that the horror afflicted and the appreciation of his population for the end of threats by the enemy that it reminds us of another Vlad, Vlad Drăculea. Way back in the ancient days of March 16, 2014, we saw this parallel between Vlad Drăculea from history and similar current actions and popularity with the people for his making their lives safer by Vladimir Putin, and the facts that they were both named Vlad. So we went the extra step and took the inspiration of Vlad Drăculea being named by his adversaries as Vlad the Impaler, and we gave Vladimir Putin the title Vlad the Invader when he entered the Crimea, Ukraine. {For anyone so inclined to peruse our collection of articles thus far concerning Vladimir Putin under our reference of Vlad the Invader can go here care-of, dare I reveal it, Google.}

 

 

The Vlads Vlad Drăculea and Vladimir Putin or Vlad the Impaler and Vlad the Invader

 

The rambling above has its reasons as we are likely to have one of those moments when the current resembles the past but as an echo put through an amplifier and a few special effects added. As established, Vladimir Putin, Vlad the Invader, is a get the job done, damn the consequences, because as long as the people are behind me and will continue to elect me to whatever position is required for me to remain above the consequences, then damn those consequences and its pedal to the metal and increasing pressure until the others squeal and beg for mercy, though we know no mercy. Still, there has been a pressure vessel being pumped as fast and as far and wide as the Saudi Arabia Wahabbists and the Egyptian Al-Azhar University trained Imams are able to, with the aid of the social networks, online videos and their charismatic appeal combined with descriptions of grandeur awaiting those who take action in the holy jihad against the Western World, which oddly enough to these Imams the Russian Federation which was salvaged from the collapsed Soviet Union had now been relegated to the Western World. Many of the youth are looking at a future with little if any promise and frustration building up such that they eagerly seek something or someone to blame for what is described to them as a conspiracy of the Western Powers who spread corruption and misery wherever they rule as they take what they want and ignore those living in these places. All the poverty and lack of opportunity is inflated into a global conspiracy blaming whomever their chosen target of the moment is which is about to be the Russian Federation, currently Europe’s largest Muslim country. One might say that they know not with whom they are about to open terrorist hostilities. These Imams have all the trademarks of terror instigators with the training and certificates to match. They have been operating mostly in Central Russia centering efforts with the Tatars, Russia’s largest Muslim ethnic group numbering about 5 million, along with estimated 2.5 to 5 million Uzbeks, 1 million Tajiks and 1 million Kyrgyz all who currently reside in Russia. These Muslims are being radicalized with mixed but slowly building the result of both Salafism and Wahhabism, ultra-conservative movements within Sunni Islam.

 

All of this will eventually reach the desired conflict but unlikely the desired end being aimed for by these outside forces who are instigating and also enlisting mostly illegal immigrants from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Afghanistan. These are numbering also in the millions as there is little enforcement and what there is can easily be worked around. The plan is not difficult to ascertain as it is the same as what has worked so perfectly with Islamic conquest since the early 700’s when they first spread out of their thin slivers of habitual areas on the rims of the Arabian Peninsula, some things never really change much. Step 1: infiltrate with immigration both legal if given the opportunity as was just extended by Angela Merkel and jumped on the bandwagon were François Hollande and Barack Obama, all of which are in denial of Islamist terror potential with the unchecked waves of ‘refugees’ which have an imbalance of men aged mid to late teens through mid-thirties all able bodied, single and many wearing designer cloths talking on the latest model iPhones. Step 2: demand changes to accommodate Islam and begin terror strikes to set area on the edge needing just the right bold strike of organized wide front of terror to send them beyond the cusp and likely unable to recover before the end plays out. Step 3: start to take position in the government and get trusted Muslims in position which are elected and push the non-Islamic native population from the area allowing them to remain either as Dhimmi paying the Jiyza or having converted to Islam which will get them observed to catch them still practicing their former religion in secret. Then the final Step 4: make the push to take the entire nation through force and install a theocratic dictatorship.

 

 

Flow of Illegal Immigrants and eventual path of conquering forces once Russia is brought to her knees

 

There will be a one-step solves all problems as Vlad the Invader shares the shock value though Vlad the Invader needs to be somewhat more tactful and within societal norms as even stretched by a long and grinding war one may not use Vlad the Impaler methods of impaling the bodies of those enemies taken prisoner and the dead left on the field of nettle by the invaders all on pike poles impaled with the other end of the impaling weapon firmly thrust deeply into the ground making for a gruesome and horrific sight which had the desired shock and flight rather than fight reflex from his enemies. The Ottoman Turks who were constantly trying to take the Romanian lands are reputed at one point to assign their most feared and similarly barbarous with his tactics to the point of appearing unbalanced or completely insane. His response to the request that he take care of the Vlad Drăculea problem and he ungraciously refused claiming that fighting a foe who showed to be even beyond the cusp by the Ottoman Turks most egregious commander who used shock value tactics himself but was quite terrified of Vlad the Impaler and thus the effect of peace and freedom from Ottoman rule. Vladimir Putin will still use the tactics he learned while studying methods within the KGB, the original trainers of Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas as well as other expert murderers such as Che Guevara, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tso Deng, Pol Pot and too many others to list.

 

If one were to question Vlad the Invader’s metal, one need go not very far to get results, just ask the residents and rulers of Georgia, Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, Chechnya and especially Chechen Capital City of Grozny as they will all weave a similar story of brutality and no apparent tactics beyond that of intimidation though overwhelming damage, loss of life, and senseless bombardment with the only explanation being that if a target was known then why not take out the whole block and every block around it and most of the ones on the outside of those just to make sure if the target was attempting to escape. This is not beyond other KGB rumored methods as in Lebanon one of the people taken hostage in a Hezballah raid was a Soviet Union official along with a few British, French, an Italian and a few Americans. The Italian was released with the threat for each nation to release all the Islamic terror suspects and those who already faced trial and were serving their sentences. The next day, after receiving intelligence that indeed a Russian national was taken there was an immediate Soviet response. An embassy vehicle drove by the headquarters building in southern Beirut where they rolled out the heads of three Hezballah terrorists captured the evening after the abducted Russian was confirmed on the ensuing morning. The heads included a note informing them where the rest of the bodies were buried and informed then if they had not released their Russian hostage, they could expect more deliveries. The Russian was standing at the gates of the Soviet Union’s Embassy later that very night carrying a letter of abject apologies and no Soviet Union citizen was again proving that when barbarity is met with superior barbarity the message is fully understood. The fact that the American hostages were amongst the last to be released was even more proof that one cannot answer barbarous hostilities with words and negotiations which include empty threats which the terrorists fully understand will never be carried out because the nations they are fighting obey the rules of war. This leads to the situation where one will act predictably which means their every move can be anticipated and thus their terror adversaries were always at least one step ahead.

 

Surprise and brash acts are the only tactic shown to work other than almost carpet-bombing entire cities or regions, acting impulsively or deliberately contrary to logic and all predictability and even with undue force and sinking not only to their level but a number of levels deeper just to assure that your message that you will destroy whatever it takes to shock the terrorists and their leaders to such an extent that they beg you for an end to the attacks or whatever utilized which got their full attention of the terror forces and it would be unwise to reignite such a game which required one to chance another person’s life. Such games and such stakes must be eradicated before another life is needlessly wasted. Never again must be the stated policy of any democratic nation and it must be strictly followed no matter the consequence. To cave to such demands only endangers everyone else as there becomes the idea that if one kidnaps the correct person or sufficient numbers of victims are kidnapped that a free nation will then cave to the demands placing one person above that of the entirety of the remaining population. Putin knows how that game is played and is willing to play such a game in the most brutal way. Where such is apparently such a violent and callous manner to treat life but it is the only way to prevent future lives being placed in danger making every foreign tourist a potential target and eventually that target becomes anybody anywhere. Odd as it may seem, the Russian policy could very well be the only manner in which to take such situations to their final manner and logistically defused in a manner which ends the kidnap threat as it gains the terrorist foe no gains. We need to unfortunately learn this answer ourselves or we will be subjecting the entirety of the Middle East in the actions not taken over the next few years. Careful planning before any situation becomes the news crisis of the decade until next week once the government caves to the demands. That is the reason terrorists must never be negotiated with, only destroyed wherever they stand.

The Endless Arab Offensive Continues

 

Yes, there were more attacks today. One would be hard pressed to know this even following Israeli news but watching social media provides the insight and particulars for those few who may catch the story from a witness or the victim providing they were fortunate enough to be capable of telling their friends, family and those close to them. This might be the start of an ever growing news web as one shares the information with another and the web slowly expands until it hits the breakout point which sends things into the strange world of going viral. The sad thing about the news has been the phrasing used by all too many news services which have used terminology to turn everything on its head. The BBC reported on an attack where two Israelis were murdered and one assailant who committed the stabbing was killed by police as he charged them with the knife in hand but the BBC found a more interestingly slanted way to title their article which read, “Palestinian Shot Dead After Jerusalem Attack Kills Two.” The BBC is unfortunately far from alone and anybody relying on the BBC, CNN, the New York Times, CNBC, AFP or much of the mainstream media will receive slanted news but they are not totally to blame; it is their choice of reporters and front line photographers. Often those first with the “news” are straight from the Arab media making propaganda arm replete with photos which appear to make their stories all the more plausible. These are the stringers hired by the actual reporters who have an advantage over actual real news reporters; they work for the Islamists who are the originators of every Islamist groups which followed. These stringers work for what has been described best as Pallywood and are invited or even assisted in the planning of the attacks and instigations most often against IDF troops or even staging a battle against no enemy (see video below).

 

 

 

 

Instigations against the IDF, Border Police or other rock throwing, firebombing, stabbing or simple spitting and striking IDF troops coordinated too often with professional instigators trained in the finest techniques in the most progressive universities in Europe and financed by the European Union or other European governments who often work with one of their preferred filming specialists, the Bilal Tamini family who specialize in such coordinated instigations and assaults on vehicles with Israeli license plates, though their true specialty is edited conflict videos of violence by the IDF though the initial violence by the European instigating pros or the Arabs assisting being edited out. It was just one such video which ended an honored and well-decorated officer’s career when after having his fingers broken and further insults and assaults finally returned violence which became the video of the week and sufficed for the commanders who rarely get out in the field to see and drum him from his command (see pictures and video below),

These have been a few of the sets of videos from which certain pictures of vital snapshots or piecemealed and edited videos have been manufactured to be used either to provide the media the news of the evil Israelis using excessive force as well as video shots for propaganda within their own ranks to depict the brave Arab soldiers to show and inspire their youths rousing within them the desire to give their all by attacking Israeli civilians or enforcement forces or best a combination of civilians and when the end their assault rushing the enforcement personnel upon being prevented more civilian targets thus going out in a blaze of glory. Should the Islamist terrorist not be fatally injured they will receive the same quality care from medical personnel as does their victims, something we have vacillated between being disgusted and being proud that our people have not sunk to the same barbarous level as our adversaries. That brings us to the head Islamic terrorist, Mahmoud Abbas who claimed and was echoed throughout the world media that the Israelis had murdered in cold blood a thirteen year old Arab child. The world media picked up this story and ran with it without checking if Abbas was telling anything even resembling the truth. Had any of these eager beavers (our apology to beavers who are hard-working and would probably have checked the claim for validity) checked their story factual reference and actually called anybody in the Israeli government or the Magen David Adom personnel and followed up with the hospital they would have found this very same thirteen year old boy resting in his hospital bed recovering from his extensive and free surgery and all other necessary healthcare, while cursing the hospital personnel and the surgeons who had just saved his life claiming that their efforts destroyed his experiencing the greatest moment of his life of becoming a martyr. There’s a thanks but no thanks for you. That’s also gratitude as well.

 

There should be no surprise in any of this as the leadership of the Islamists which are the forebearers of the Islamic State, were formed by the Muslim Brotherhood in conjunction with the Soviet Union KGB back in 1964 with a charter which called for the elimination of the entirety of the State of Yisroel a full three years before the 1967 Six Day War, a war declared was being fought to drive the Jews and other Zionist supporters into the (Mediterranean) Sea. The PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) was founded and invented the hijacking of planes, murdering of civilians, taking hostages, vehicular bombing, assassination, (Robert Kennedy was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan who admitted in his confessions that as a Palestinian he was forced to assassinate Robert Kennedy before he could be elected because he was too favorable of Israel), murderous rage which could go so far as to tear two soldiers apart limb by limb and through disembowelment and then lean out the window and proudly display your blood soaked hands watching, nay, enjoying and soaking in every cheer from the crowd gathered outside (see picture below).

When one traces the paths of the many Islamist entities back from their present state of affairs, one will eventually reach an interesting truth, they are all derived from the same Islamic awakening which began with Hassan al-Banna who founded the Muslim Brotherhood ((Arabic: جماعة الإخوان المسلمين) in March 1928, in the city of Ismailia, Egypt. All modern Islamic supremacist movements, whether nationalist or pan-Arab universalist, whether secular socialist or fanatically religious, they all began back there when the initial spark of an awakened Islamist movement began which strove to shake to awaken the Islamist spirit to take back the initiative which had lied dormant as the Ottoman Caliphate slowly rotted from the inside until finally falling in World War I. The Muslim Brotherhood came into existence partially as a reaction to the fact that the Islamic States had lost their independence and were currently under European colonization. This is what the Muslim Brotherhood found intolerable, the fact that Islam had lost its supremacy and was instead subjected to the insult of foreign rule.

 

From the Muslim Brotherhood the path takes a few faltering steps and the first group to come from the inspirations of the Muslim Brotherhood was largely secular but was supportive of Islam as its core belief alongside socialist nationalist but not only survived but thrived as it tapped into something which the rest of the world had no problem identifying with, hatred of the Jews. This was, of course, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). Before the founding of the PLO the Muslim Brotherhood had been at the forefront committing acts of sabotage and threatening governments it found which opposed them which was largely done because governments have always feared and suppressed movements which attempt to establish organizations beyond their control. This has always been the problem facing the Muslim Brotherhood so it began to form groups through which it could manipulate things and ideas to install friendly governments which it could control. This was the initial spawning of that ideal of making the world ready and content with the rule as deigned sufficiently Islamic and accepting of steerage by the radical Muslim Brotherhood. Since much of their initial pressures were against the British in Egypt and then in attempts to take control of the Egyptian government, the Muslim Brotherhood has always faced stiff and determined resistance in Egypt though it has since moved well beyond that but is still running into problems on many fronts. After the PLO began to show promise the Muslim Brotherhood began trying to form other groups to tap into the seeming power motivating the PLO but the Muslim Brotherhood ran into barriers and settings where a socialist group was not all that necessary as such already existed and was governing as a nationalist state which did not leave room for a second such movement so the Muslim Brotherhood sought a different path.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood decided that it should strengthen its Islamic core and found religious revolutionary groups which would spread the Islamic message of supremacy, Jihad and Caliphate. And where else to set up shop than against Israel, the sole place that they had seen success. Welcome to Hamas, the next great step in the spread of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood together. This struck upon a familiar theme from the original teachings of Israel to conquer from within and without and Hamas fulfilled this perfectly and thus the new Muslim Brotherhood had its model for success so it took off. From the success of Hamas came numerous other offshoots used to spread the Islamist ideal from its root in the secondary Muslim Brotherhood offspring against the Jews, Hamas which was really PLO 2.0 which took the largely secular PLO and transformed this principle from Socialist to a religious based Hamas which more exemplified the universalist conquest of the world far more clearly than had the PLO. So now there were competing Muslim Brotherhood entities, Hamas and the PLO, one run along with the KGB and one purely Jihadist and purely Muslim Brotherhood. From these two came the latest mutations from the Muslim Brotherhood spawned children which had produced or supported in concept such groups as Black September, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and the latest being the Islamic State. Each version was a step farther in the evolution of the first two projects which had their roots in the Muslim Brotherhood, the PLO and Hamas, both continue today with the PLO being closest to the Justice and Development Party, or A.K.P. in Turkey which has slowly moved across from somewhat secular to being more religious changing as did the Muslim Brotherhood with time. The other side has culminated in the establishment of groups which were spawned from al-Qaeda and thus a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood, thus Hamas terrorist group in Gaza becomes the Islamic State. The Islamic State is the last in a progression and refinement of the initial outcroppings formed by the Muslim Brotherhood and has a strong path back to Hamas and has also incorporated the governing structure of the PLO making the Islamic State the long sought after balance of running the state functioning with inspiration from the secular PLO merged with the purely religious form of Hamas.

 

What Israel must do to find their way forward is to address these roots and trace the path from the PLO and Hamas beginnings through the branches of al-Qaeda and the Taliban and other offshoots spawned largely due to the work performed by the Muslim Brotherhood to establish their bases. Further, by establishing both models in the furtive grounds of the war against Israel and the Jews, the original institutions which were approved and given much of their initial success due to their founding principles and outside influence and supplier of concepts and basic structures the Muslim Brotherhood and its two perfect constructs of PLO and Hamas which have defined every successful group since. So when leaders and politicians attempt to claim that their fight is totally separate from the struggles Israel is facing, they are simply misinformed for none of the Sunni and many of the copies in the Shia world are directly modeled on Israel which they claim will eventually cause the formation of an entity which will owe its existence which al-Qaeda and Hamas and in turn the PLO who wrote the book on terrorism and has been producing newer copies of what can be achieved ever since. This brings us to our starting point that the Muslim Brotherhood has served as the initial model from which all later Islamist actors were formed using the model of Hamas as their role model and inspiration and this admiration and debt has been passed down the line and may be that these subsequent groups will forever owe their origins and inspiration to the PLO and Hamas for being the pioneers setting the path upon which these other stand. Israel is indeed fighting a separate foe but they are not removed from these other groups but instead are the basis upon which these others stand and once Israel is permitted by a foolish world to utterly destroy these twin ideas and personnel into the future while also reaching far back to the initial founding of Islam and the expansion seeking a way back to go forward. One need look no further than the Hamas Charter which demands that once Hamas has destroyed the Zionist entity as they refer to Israel, they are then tasked to eradicating all Jews across all worlds, an endeavor which would also require the conquest of much if not all of the known world, a reoccurring theme one finds steeped entirely through all of Islamic groups, especially those founded on the PLO/Hamas model and whose actions are nearly identical. This is what Israel has been fighting, Muslim Brotherhood 1.0 through Muslim Brotherhood 4.0 still have at their hearts the beating of a man who had an idea back in Egypt 1928 and may have drawn strength from those who eventually would take his dream to the world along with the chant of, “Khaybar Khaybar ya-Yahud, jaysh il-Mohammed saufa yaud!” which translated as “Remember (the battle of) Khaybar, oh Jews, the army of Mohammed is coming!” Thus those fighting the Islamic State are simply fighting Hamas and the PLO and those fighting the PLO and Hamas are fighting Islamic State. These two fights are actually inseparable and this is a truth the world needs to learn, Israeli victories are their victories and vice-versa. That is the basic truth as even the Shiite groups are modeled on the PLO which means Iran is also an offshoot of the PLO which is pointed out in the pictures of Yasser Arafat and the Ayatollah Khomeini.

This is the reality of the past right up to this very day with the main threats to the stability of the world are Iran under the Ayatollahs and the Islamic State as the latest rendition of Hamas and the PLO, a blend the Muslim Brotherhood has had a hand in forming from the outset in 1928 Europe with a membership initially of under a dozen workers on the Suez Canal workforce. From such humble beginnings we now face the dawn to World War III which each day appears less likely avoidable especially with the downing of a Russian civilian airliner and Russia under Putin, Vlad the Invader, bringing his nuclear missiles into the ready to respond to this attack on Mother Russia which will receive complete and total backing of the Russian people if it is presented that Russia can target those responsible and end this threat they face. The question may end up what will the rest of the world do? This is what the world on the brink looks like, nothing more and nothing less, nukes at the ready is always a tense situation no matter whose nukes are being prepared.

Who Leads the Free World?

 

The United States has for the time abrogated their right to be the leader of the free world. Despite the United States military being the most capable and well-armed and trained that the world has ever witnessed, they have been relegated to sentry duty and policing their own areas and otherwise been retreating from the world scene. The rumors that President Obama has recognized his error and is about to send some troops to fight against the Islamic State is but fifty troops who are not to engage beyond being spotters for air strikes and possibly performing training the indigenous troops will only cause the Islamic State to shift their positions more often, set up more dummy camps which look and sound on radio chatter as if they are an actual base and also doing a similar thing with tank formations in order to get the United states to waste their ordinance striking decoys just as was done in the Balkans.

 

Where next to look? Europe might be a logical place when one judges solely by history, but after World War II the United States basically neutered the Europeans such that their navies basically were relegated to the strength to perform coastal patrols and little more and their armies were basically reduced such that to field an effective army sized assault would take a combined force of much of the European Union nations which would lead to numerous other problems such as unit cohesion and command and control protocols and division of risk and other minutia some of which would still be important. Oddly enough the two nations in the free world who might have the resources militarily might be Canada and Australia but both currently have governments which would preclude their taking such grand risks. India has a respectable sized military but their equipment and training would likely need upgrading and the time to teach their commanders throughout the ranks how to utilize the features of modern command and control with which warfare becomes more effective and individual units with the right support made available in a timely manner and knowing how to anticipate such requirements through analysis would take quite some time. Much of the rest of the world are beyond consideration simply due to their voting records in the General Assembly which also would make a number of Europeans suspect as well. If one were to record all the votes taken in the past seventy-five years in the United Nations General Assembly one of the countries, the very few and possibly only nation, that had voted nearly if not perfect with the United States is Israel.

 

There are a few others which vote most often with the United States both in the Security Council and in the General Assembly. Those are Canada, Czech Republic, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Panama, and Palau. Together the army they could raise even if the rest of the European Union nations were added as well as Australia, Japan, India and the Philippines and your fieldable force would not exactly be formidable. The only nations to actively challenge United States President Barack Obama and the rest of the nations in backing the horrific Iran nuclear deal, which guarantees Iran developing and becoming a nuclear armed state in approximately an even dozen years should they obey the terms and if they do not obey the terms and simply go as fast as they are able then, by this time next year probably the Iranians will have produced three to ten deliverable weapons depending on how much Highly Enriched Uranium they have already stored at some undisclosed location plus the amounts they can produce running all their centrifuges running full-speed in long cascades all the time. But wait, it could be worse and in many ways it already is.

 

There are other major problems around the globe and more specifically across the Arab world of the Middle East and extending through Northern Africa (MENA). Taking the lead in this troubled region are Syria and Libya, not a total surprise. Another contender would have been Egypt if not for the secondary protests which demanded the army take control and run new elections where more parties which formed as a result of the initial efforts of the Arab Spring, an idea which implicitly bore witness to the chaos which has swept other regions as well emanating from the lack of the guidance and “interference” by the United States. The leading from behind was more like leading from within the gates of the White House as President Obama was leading from so far behind the United States almost had no influence and was of little assistance after the governments started collapsing. What was supposed to be an Arab Spring rapidly became the Arab Winter. The fracturing in Libya into tribal enclaves and Islamist sects, all of which take little note of those claiming to be the nation’s government though they control only most of the capital city of Tripoli. Syria has presented the world with the spectacle of a bloodbath which has claimed the lives of approaching half a million civilians and large numbers of military and militia casualties. The entrance of an overtly strong and well organized group took such advantage to grasp large tracks of lands in both Syria and in another area where death and chaos reigned in central Iraq’s Sunni areas. This group is of course the Junior Varsity, as referred to early on when if the United States President had entered the battle in strength for a brief period in the early stages they could have struck the forming Islamic State inflicting serious damage and death and possibly have captured or killed much of their leadership returning the forces into the disarray they suffered from before being organized by the Islamic State. Now this group commands lands greater in size than the United Kingdom and will likely grow stronger and gain more followers swearing their fealty all across the central Arab Middle East. The United States response had been an extremely weak and ineffective bombing campaign where often pilots return with their ordinance still in place as their target area had no targets and their search for suitable targets were unsuccessful and they were forced to return to base when fuel ran low. The fifty man force about to be unleashed by President Obama will likely prove the greatest military farce of his Presidency.

The Middle East is not the only problem though when the problem is financial; its effects are more readily concealable. The difficulties in Europe can also be traced back to the United States as when the American public’s buying power becomes strapped, then every market in the world loses their primary market. In Europe the economic situation grew so severe in a number of states with Greece and Spain being unable to cover their difficulties and Greece even having riots over the difficulties and many police departments turning to foot patrols in the neighborhoods closest to the station houses as their vehicles were out of gas and the precinct out of funds. Some Fire Departments ran on crews who were often unpaid but had firefighters who refused to allow such an inconvenience to leave the people unprotected from fires. These were the modern heroes.

 

Meanwhile, even with the encouragement of President Obama who has signaled through unofficial channels which have included members of his administration have encouraged former allies of the United States of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to actively seek assistances and alliances with Soviet Russian holdover of the old ways and now President of modern Russia Vladimir Putin, though some of his actions prove his throwback to a former age and desiring to force things back to the good old days with success while the United States remains almost inert, as the United States has taken a pull back on all fronts as the United States imposing militarism was declared by President Obama to be one of the two most damaging influences causing all the strife in the world with the mere existence of the state of Israel being the other evil influence which may explain the cold treatment of Israel and her Prime Minister by the American leader and many in his cabinet and shadow cabinet of Czars. It never occurred to the Obama Administration that the United States presence in near every hotspot was as those tasked to address the situation and as repair and assist and not causality.

 

This misperception has also been expanded to the Arab/Israeli conflict. President Obama and many of his advisors, particularly Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett and Samantha Power were known anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and probably anti-Semitic problem children. The near universal denials of the slant to Israeli against Israeli security through supporting even the most absurd of Arab Palestinian demands and claims might be causes for concern for Israel and her security and being just one more administration to take the position that it is Israeli settling their ancient homelands and fulfilling Torah that are the problem and the Arab Palestinians are an oppressed indigenous peoples despite the Jewish presence documented to reach back near four-thousand year history and constant existence in Jerusalem since David took the city thirty-five-hundred year ago. This position has slowly been eroding as more and more leaders and people throughout the world have begun to realize that Arab intransigence and demanding that Israel be destroyed and that the destruction of the Jewish State and the genocidal slaughter of her peoples are the primary desire of Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Arab Palestinian cause. The next realization that will hopefully hatch within their consciousness is that Israel had already given up the entirety of the Gaza Strip in August of 2005, which was soon taken from Mahmoud Abbas and his Arab Palestinian Authority by Hamas and a host of terrorist Islamist entities; returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula, which is easily three times the size of Israel itself; plus the Zionist Congress when working to form the Jewish State agreed to permit the British to form Transjordan (Jordan) from over three-fourths the lands of the British Mandate surrendering the lands east of the Jordan river and reaching to Iraq on the east, Syria to the north and Saudi Arabia to the south; so all told, Israel has surrendered sufficient land mass to have increased the actual size of Israel close to ten times. So, do not claim that Israel has not returned or released their claims to land; that is a total myth and quite fallacious a myth at that.

 

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

So, with the United States Executive Branch under President Obama and reflecting his beliefs which reflect with great credit the church he and his family attended for twenty years under the anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-Judeo-Christian ethic and beliefs Pastor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, it is little surprise that in President Obama’s foreign policy has reflected his animosities and complete lack of foreign policy expertise. This has led to the retreat by the United States on all fronts and allowed for the brash adventuresome actions by American adversaries of Russia and China, amongst others which have bordered on being temerarious, risky and posing a serious threat to any President who follows these policies and their implications if and when such a foreign policy focused President might be elected. The foolhardiness of the American populace who are well permitted to ignore the outside and greater world and simply be concerned with their domestic situations, pretend that economics were their driving passions and even appear to have fallen for an idea whose time was claimed had come and the first Black President be placed in the White House and for his catchy and easily remembered themes of “Yes We Can” and of “Hope and Change”; though there never was anybody asking what changes are we presumably hoping for? The change has mostly been quite destructive in the world’s stage and a complete abrogation of the traditional importance to the world, strategic positioning of the United States military forces, the American political model being represented as the preferred model for good governance with concern for the people over and above the concerns of the political class and as the guarantor of order, human rights, civility and against the most disastrous proclivities of mankind such as genocide, oppressions, and the many other presumed actions the United States could provide the world at large when she is enforcing those principles under which she herself presumably performs her domestic policies. Some might claim that the United States internal policies have also suffered since the start of the Twenty First Century which was preceding the withdrawal and suffering of the rest of the world from the United States reduction of both interactions and direct actions across the globe and especially in the MENA areas which have suffered the most from this abatement.

 

This is what has led to the situation where the free world had no real or active leadership. Canada’s Stephen Harper took up some of the challenge as did Britain’s David Cameron; but even combined, the two men could not equal even the most minimal actions usually taken by the United States. Additionally, the only nations who are capable of deploying troops across the globe are China and, to a lesser extent, Russia. The pullback of American forces has permitted some adventurism by these two powers which would never have been undertaken had there been a remaining presence in force of the United States. Russia adventurism has extended to as far as Syria and even negotiating got permission for a naval base in Northern Africa. China has been even more interesting as they have been adding to their territories and expending their claims to the waters of the South China Sea by building new islands stretching well into this vital commercial water causeway through which much trade by shipping takes place.

 

So, who will take up the mantle of leader of the free world? Of all the potential candidates, it is likely that one of the smallest of nations and one which many would claim they would never look to for such directions, still it is Israel which may end up with the mantle due to her location as the cork in the bottle of the Middle East which appears ready to once again explode on the world’s stage starting with Europe. The explosion of “refugees” into Europe over the past weeks is in reality an invasion and not an influx of oppressed refugees. Despite the great care and effort of the media to find groups with children and women to snap their pictures defining the refugees flight into Europe but there have been a few news sources which have shown the reality of large and even overly common numbers of men between the ages of fifteen to forty and extremely able of being a deployed army which is now injected throughout continental Europe and a large number had gathered across Germany. If Europe is going to be capable of managing the troubles to come, they will very likely look to Israel as their model on how to handle their newly found problems. There is one result from this which will serve Israel as well as Europe as Israel will be forgiven taking control of all of Israel as promised in the British Mandate but limited by the later Churchill White Papers where Transjordan was taken out of the lands originally promised and the promise to keep the remainder sacrosanct for the Jewish State for a promise of all the lands west of the Jordan River. This newly found freedom of action will permit Israel to finally take the steps which has been obvious since the Second Intifada from 2000 through 2005 which claimed over a thousand Jewish and Israeli lives and many tens of thousands injured with all too many having life altering injuries with which they have been forced to live with as their injuries were too serious for modern medicine to repair and only to make things as best as the physicians were capable. The memories and witness of the pains still felt resulting from the last Intifada has cast a pall over Israel where people are determined to take any and all necessary steps to assure that no such situation comes into the violence which has been escalating since late last winter and finally made the world news with the stabbings. These attacks have become so permeating Israel with a half dozen to dozen daily and have become the new normal which means they will soon become considered everyday events in Israel and therefore no longer of any importance for the media to grant coverage. Those who choose to mention these attacks will come under criticism for saying the same thing day after day and as the media is no longer covering these events including the daily rioting on the Temple Mount there are no new pictures and as a Jew in Israel I would face certain injury or death were I to attempt to take my own pictures and videos and as such I am not that adventurous. Still, once Europe realizes that they are in the same boat as Israel and that boat is taking on water at an alarming pace, then Israel will be freed of her shackles and freed to do what should have been done ten to twenty years ago. This will put an end to the miscreants, actually murderous swine, who have indoctrinated their children so to send them on suicide missions as their deaths are to their propaganda media’s advantage and must be born witness by the Western Word for being what it truly is, child sacrifices. Their acts are no different than the idolaters from who Joshua led the initial conquest of Israel by the Jews who had come out of Egypt almost thirty-five-hundred years ago leading to the initial founding of the Jewish State which was recently reestablished restoring what is the only indigenous peoples to return from exile twice with one approaching two-thousand years and to retain their language, code of laws (Torah) and remained a peoples avoiding intermarriage for much of their centuries of life amongst other peoples as they resided in their Diaspora. This is the miraculous nation which may soon become a “Light Unto the Nations” as written in her historic Torah and kept alive in her oral laws as well, to quote Fiddler on the Roof, her “Traditions!”
