It’s Kristallnacht déjà vu all over again, to adjust one of the late Yogi Berra’s famous and odd truisms where this was one of his more cogent statements. The eerie similarities November 9th through 10th in 1938 have now had their first order repeat with modern times now, quoting from Mark Twain who was claimed to have stated, “History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme a lot.” Kristallnacht saw the Brown Shirts mobs rampaging through the Jewish areas in the majority of German towns and cities destroying their businesses, burned down Synagogues, looted homes, murdered at least one hundred Jews, arrested at least thirty-thousand Jewish men to be sent to Nazi concentration camps, destroyed Yeshivas and there were rumored raping of some younger Jewish women and other atrocities. Jewish stores had already been marked with the Star of David painted in yellow and black across thousands of doors and windows, with accompanying anti-Semitic slogans. Signs were posted saying “Don’t Buy from Jews!” (Kauf nicht bei Juden!), “The Jews Are Our Misfortune!” (Die Juden sind unser Unglück!) and “Go to Palestine!” (Geh nach Palästina!). Such activities can be viewed in Picture below. The boycotts and Kristallnacht did not just burst on the scene suddenly out of nowhere. Just as rising anti-Semitism has led to the European Union voting to label Israeli products manufactured, grown, fermented or having any step of its production or harvest from areas beyond the 1949 Armistice Line also called the Green Line; so had rising European anti-Semitism grown facilitating the imposition of the European Union vote to label these particular Israeli goods as they are intended to force the Jews to leave the ‘occupied’ (legally at worst disputed and honestly Israeli) lands which is nothing more than the European Union agreeing with the Arabs that the lands must be made Judenrein. Think about this one truth, the historic lands which the northern half of these lands was referred to as Samaria and had another name historically, Israel and the southern half was called Judea and somehow the world had decided that these lands never did and never can belong to the Jews and that the ancient Jewish capital Jerusalem and its Old City which was the actual ancient capital must now be given to Arabs who gave themselves a name just to change the image from the Arab countries as the Goliath against little Israel as David into the undefeatable IDF and Israel as Goliath against these few Arabs who adopted the Roman given name for Judea of Palestinia, they modernized it to Palestine to benefit from the British term based on the Roman name as well. So the world wants there to be the Jewish People denied the Old City and Temple Mount of Jerusalem, Judea, and ancient lands which were Samaria and also named Israel, what is wrong with the world.

What has gone wrong is there has been a demonic combination of events which began with the Six Day War in June of 1967 when Egypt and Syria massed troops in the Golan Heights and along the Sinai-Negev borders. Egypt also blockaded the Straights of Tiran blocking Israeli direct access to Asia and also defined as a Casus belli which instituted an Egyptian declaration of war through that act and the massed troops was simply icing on the cake. Egyptian and Syria radio, television and other media carried repeated calls for the destruction of Israel and the genocidal slaughter of driving the Jews into the Sea as was declared by Gamal Abdel Nasser in his critical and historic speech carried in both Egypt and Syria repeatedly every day for over a week. The world was already mourning the end of the Jewish State and lamenting the coming death of near five million Jews with debates of what exactly any nation or organization such as the United Nations might do and these discussions were designed to move mournfully slow until the time had run out and everything was over. Then the impossible and unimaginable happened. Israel struck early one morning with airstrikes which amazingly hit almost every Egyptian and Syrian fighter jets on the ground and shooting down the few which managed to get airborne and mostly left the decoys unharmed sitting between the burning jets on the airstrips. The ground war wasn’t much different as the Israelis launched assaults into the Sinai Peninsula soon surrounding the Egyptian Third Army closed off in the Sinai Peninsula and the Syrian were knocked off the Golan Heights and were slowly retreating towards Damascus. One would be hard pressed to believe the reality as the Syrian and Egyptian media kept reporting their gains and closing on Tel Aviv so the Jordanian King advised by their military decided they were not going to be left out of this historic victory though the Israelis begged them not to be sucked in by the Egyptian and Syrian lies which served to only convince the Jordanians the Jews were losing even worse than the reports and attacked. Israel diverted reinforcements headed for the Sinai and they soon stopped to pray at the Wailing Wall and reported that the Temple Mount was in their hands. By the time it all ended after Six Days, thus the Six Day War, Israel had regained the lands lost in 1948 of Judea, Samaria (ancient Israel), Gaza and Golan Heights and gained the entire Sinai Peninsula and stunned the world. As the Israelis were threatening to cross the Suez Canal and strike into Damascus the world demanded a halt to the war without demanding the Egyptians, Syrians or Jordanians surrender or admit their having been defeated. The Egyptian still teach in their schools about their great victory of June 1967. But it was the world’s reaction which changed the most drastically.

 

The world for a brief period celebrated the unimaginable and stunning victory by Israel in only six days but then came the old bugaboo about the all-powerful Jew and their eventual plan to conquer the world. This was followed by the Israeli victory again and against the odds as they were caught initially flatfooted and with their military and reserves spread throughout the lands in synagogues observing Yom Kippur; but after Israel gathered her troops and resurged; they again routed Egypt and Syria until the world again demanded a stop without Egypt or Syria accepting their defeat. Then Israel began to have their economy branch out and began to develop a high tech sector, innovative start-up sector and also making discoveries in agriculture, medicine and sciences both hard and soft of all varieties. This suspicions and old misgivings against Jewish excelling and success again nudged Europe to return to their centuries old hatreds which has slowly gained traction and grew. Then it got a massive influx of funding and a serious and well-financed propaganda campaign claiming the Jews were committing atrocities and had used nefarious and ill-gotten advantages in their wars and were using their same old tricks to gain advantages in business and so many other of the old malice and hatreds. Joining in grudges against the Jews was almost natural and with an entire Jewish nation, Israel; nothing could be better or make a larger target. Hating Israel became the low hanging fruit for those seeking a reason for anything wrong with their world. When economic problems struck as in the late 1970s and again in the early 90s anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism grew. Eventually the three, though technically separate in some particulars, they all became known as anti-Zionism. This was chosen largely because the United Nations had equated Zionism with Racism under direct pressures by the Arab League nations and was pushed through the General Assembly with the support of the Nonaligned Nations (NAM) which gave the Arab nations an automatic majority to pass almost any General Assembly Resolution which carries the weight of a suggestion which becomes annulled as soon as any effected nations rejects the resolution.

 

The next situation which cast Israel in an even worse light was the pressures on the media who were mostly too wary to step out of line and eventually the main news services began relying on stringers for their reporting and pictures from the Arab controlled area. Further, some reporters saw an opportunity to make a name for themselves by taking a position in the Middle East and become known for their reporting on the abuses reportedly committed by the IDF and other Israeli security personnel with staged incidents which were at one point actually revealed by 60 Minutes report on what became known as Pallywood as shown in the video below. Despite such damning reporting by a reputable new team, the world found it more satisfying to continue with their comfort zone which believes the Arab falsehoods because it serves their need for a familiar enemy, and what is a more familiar enemy for much of Europe than the Jews, or who are now called the Zionists. This became even more obvious during the Durban Conference in 2001 which was officially titled “World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance” but devolved within minutes into a free-for-all demonizing Israel from where it spiraled completely into an area from which return is all but impossible. This has been proven with ensuing of the Durban series of conferences, each a simple reassurance and restatement of the original anti-Israel hate-fest begun in the first conference. With denunciations of Israel coming from numerous NGOs, being denounced by the United Nations Human Rights organizations at almost every meeting, UNESCO under pressure granting the Arab Palestinians the rights of sole protector of what are Jewish and Christian Holy Sites which predate Islam such as Rachel’s Tomb, Cave of the Patriarchs, Church of the Holy Sepulchre and numerous others and some still to be decided in Bethlehem, Hevron and other sites.

 

 

 

 

This brings us finally to the European Union labeling of Israeli goods they believe are from areas which the European Union agree that should have the Jews completely removed as there are apparently places where Jews must not be permitted to reside. Europeans demanding that lands be completely cleared of its Jews, sounds eerily familiar. The decision has not been finalized but perhaps we can be helpful and suggest an example which they might decide fit the bill and are sufficiently different than the Nazi symbols such as swastikas or yellow Star of David with JUDE written large within the star center (depicted below). What is most troubling is that the agitators who pushed so hard to get this action from the European Union but that does not mean they are too tired to continue. As a matter of fact, as this effort should have taken much out of the agitators, the decision by the European Union will now see a regenerated, and European Union targeted demonstrations demanding the full range of BDS be imposed on all of Israel until they do whatever it takes to give the Palestinians a state equal to their desires. Do not expect this to be a finished deal for the European Union and even after the collapse before the BDS protesters who are less interested, for the most part, in the forming of a Palestinian state as they are interested in the destruction of the one and only Jewish State. Now that the European Union has bowed before the pressures which included rioting and demonstrations, they will now face added pressures for their adopting a BDS approach to everything made by Israel hoping to cause Israel and her economy to become destroyed and thus bring down the Jewish State returning the Jews to their downtrodden position within the nations where they had been before the setting up of the state of Israel for intended destruction. The question, surprisingly, is not whether the Israelis will survive but rather whether the Europeans are going to be capable of surviving as Israelis are at comfortably higher than replacement levels, something the Europeans only manage through their recent new arrivals and the finalizing loss of Jews and the replacement of these with families of Jews exiting are being filled by Muslims seeking a better life. These new arrivals will likely have cultural difficulties and may never leave the areas in which they feel safest. It is appearing that Israel will easily outlast Europe as the Europeans prove to have more difficulties both economic and with assimilating these newcomers. This time the Jews are armed with an army which is well-trained and dedicated to their safety and proved to be very proficient at that task.

 

 

European Union Boycott Spoofing Label from Elder of Zyion

Above Sticker is the Creation of
 Elder of Zyion Credit Banner

Memo:

 

Foil EU boycott by purchasing these EU marked goods, even preferring these goods (the oranges and wines are particularly good), of Jewish products from factories which, as well as being from outside an arbitrary armistice line marking where fighting stopped to end 1948-9 War of Israeli Independence denoting the front line as of noon of a certain day, and which factories employ Palestinians who are not able to work in Israel inside Armistice Lines, and who work peacefully and gainfully side-by-side with Jews and who would lose their employ if these businesses were forced to shut down or relocate. These manufacturers are the exact dream the EU claims they support, Arabs and Jews cooperating to their mutual benefit peaceably and productively benefitting both Arab Palestinian workers and Jewish workers. These manufacturers are the future, if there is to be one, other than a final war.

Shared traditions and agreement on common goals are the glue which holds societies together. Without these familiar items as the glue there is no need to fear threats from without as the society eventually will tear itself apart from the inside. You want a current example of such a society all one need do is look to the Middle East and pick a nation which is crumbling and intertwined in a destructive civil conflict and you have your example. Syria is all too obvious as Bashir al-Assad had a view of his Alawite minority should be defended by the Druze militias acting as his personal army and all the aid he needed from Iran in arms and even soldiers as things began to go wrong. Bashir al-Assad’s father held the nation together with the glue of fear of his wrath while the son is nowhere near the fearsome leader imbuing strength and competence like his father and before one knew it he was challenged and failed. When an iron fist and the fear of it visiting your little corner of the world is all your nation has holding it together, then you better be ready to use it and use it without mercy or else you are doomed. Such nations are destined to fail from the outset as sooner or later one falls victim to the el-Duce syndrome where the people revolt against your leadership as soon as your power comes into question even if it was your alliance with one megalomaniac that collapses and the next thing you know you are strung up in the town square for a week or so. When the Soviet Union began its surprisingly rapid crumbling from the inside, a friend asked if this was real and if it was, what would be the sign to look for that would signal it was irreversible. As for if it was real, let us say I was as in shock as the next person. As for the sign signaling this truly was the end, that was the easy part so that is what I tackled using that to hedge my answer on belief. I simply told him that I would believe this was the end when Nicolae Ceaușescu fell in Rumania, and sure enough he was the last of the leaders to fall and he fell almost as hard as the European Axis leaders at the end of World War II. The other modern day examples of such failures are Saddam Hussein’s Iraq where the three main societies within have each gone their own way whether by choice, the Kurds in the north, by default, the Shia who hold the power of the governance now, and those who lost outright, the Sunni who are now caught between two enslavers, the Shia government of Iraq and the murderous hordes that are ISIS and they have nowhere to turn as neither the Kurds nor the Shia have any love left for them as they were seen as the cruel oppressors who benefitted from Saddam Hussein’s rule and are now collecting the payment for his sins. Libya is the final example where without a strong leader or the perception of such the entire society reverted back to tribal divisions and will remain each tribe to themselves against the other tribes forming and breaking alliances as it fits them without any possibility of reinstituting a central government which has reach more than twelve blocks in any direction from central Tripoli. There are even those who blame the collapse of the Roman Empire on their failure to incorporate Roman culture, rules and societal structures on those they had conquered at the fringes of their empire which eventually led to the downfall which is a concept with a share of its validity.

 

If such failure of the Roman Empire came from the fraying at its edges of the application of a singular set of societal norms, then we are today witnessing the death throes of the United States as their common heritage and societal norms are currently under assault in the courts where laws are being fortified in defiance of the traditional culture ripping things apart in such a manner as to make the separate, even disparate, parts of the society unglued from each other which may lead to the collapse of that society. The latest and possibly second most destructive tear just was handed down by the Supreme Court with their universal acceptance of same-sex marriage as the law of the land. The real culprit which will eventually topple the United States and potentially all of Western society is multiculturalism which stands that one must honor all others and their customs and no universal set of shared standards can be allowed to stand unassailable by the many and varied lesser cultures within the society. There was a time not that long ago where gun ownership was near universal in the United States and now in most of the major cities gun ownership is not only shunned but illegal which has led to rampant crime as now the criminals do not need a firearm to make them equal to any victim they choose as all they need is two other fellow miscreants to forcibly take anybody’s money by force of numbers, though there are those who prefer not sharing who simply use a weapon, not even necessarily a gun. Then there are those cultures which are forced into remission and made to hide their identity or to regress into enclaves where their numbers provide protection. The day is coming and coming rapidly to the United States shores and is awash over Europe which is pushing the Jews out of society despite the Jews having mostly adopted what was sold to them as the societal norms. The Jews have been consistently seen to be on the leading edge of every trend which came along and was considered enlightened. They were among those marching for civil rights for blacks in the fifties and sixties and have remained supporters of equality of the races through to the current times. They have been at the forefront of the march for gay acceptance and even same-sex marriage. Now that the Jews are the ones being shunned from the college campuses, and trust that which enthralls the masses in the colleges today will be the mainstays of the society ten to twenty years hence; there are already signs that there is sufficient an undercurrent in American subcultures which already hold anti-Semitic feelings which are now slowly emerging from what many would claim were the same centers from which Jew hatreds grew in Europe in the rise of the Nazis. One of the things people seem to forget was the rise of the Nazis had two epicenters and the college campuses were just as important if not more so than the reemergence amongst the rest of the areas blamed for this resurgence of Jew hatred as the ideological leaders more often came from the ivory halls of academia which was also one of the first places that the Jews were banned, from either attending or teaching in the universities. How much longer before such purges strike Western nations’ colleges and universities. It already happens on many campuses for a period every year during the heights of Israel Apartheid Week or during pro-Palestinian celebrations which have started to resemble the pogroms of Russia and the Inquisitions and other cleansings in Europe where the Jews were singled out for exclusion from the society often simply by their being expelled with only the possessions they had packed in a suitcase or two readied ahead of the pitchforks and angry mobs wielding them and other times by simply removing them permanently often burning them at the stake and other methods the crown would demand during their frenzied assault on the other, the Jew.

 

When that befalls western culture once again it will have started in the exact same place but with a slightly different target, the unfitness of the unborn. The undertaking has traditionally been referred to as Eugenics Movement. The idea of eugenics reaches back at least as far as Plato who called for the formation of a guardian race of selective breeding of those who were of superior mind and body, the mating of the cream of humanity to produce a master race. Sound familiar? Francis Galton, the half-cousin Charles Darwin, had taken his relative’s work on evolution and the survival of the fittest and applied it to be used within the human populations to breed the perfect human being and for the removal of those who were inferior. He coined the word Eugenics and eventually it became a course of study in the universities leading to a movement started around a core of its most ardent and adamant proponents and the rest is history. What is less well known is that the forefront of the Eugenics movement formed in the United States and its acceptance was so universal that it was from the United States that the most strident proponents of eugenics emerged. Such names at the front in founding the eugenics movement in their day and up to today are the poet Carl Sandburg, the aviator Charles Lindbergh, the mother of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger, the Perfect Human Society and an interesting proponent in current times, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel who was instrumental in the drafting of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or Obamacare. People might be shocked to be informed that Planned Parenthood has not always been the equal provider of alternatives for those who either desire preventive methods to avoid pregnancies or alternatives to carrying, their terms to birth of the child, a fetal mass to its conclusive child bearing as it would cause the mother undue mental stresses and interfere directly with their pursuits in life, it originally was used to sterilize those seen as unfit to have children thus forcing a eugenics program which was, as it is today, centered in minority neighborhoods. Providing you desire to seek the reality that is Planned Parenthood all one need to do is to research Margaret Sanger and her relationship with what we would today refer to as black genocide, it is not a pretty picture. There comes now another eugenics styled movement and this time the target will be traditions, the very traditions which were the glue of Western culture and society for the last two millennia.

 

The scissors that cut the pages into confetti will be forged by multiculturalism where no culture is to be preferred because we are blinding ourselves to such observations and the axe which will sever the binding making the job of the scissors even easier will be the axe taken to the Judeo-Christian culture and in particular to cut the binding of that book which professes that there are such things as good and evil, there is such a concept as right and wrong, that a life lived with proper restraints is life to be pursued, the book that once graced nearly every house and every hotel room across the United States and now a book scorned as old, out of fashion and obsolete, but the Bible is that book which we could learn where our new follies will lead, they will lead to the same place they have always led, ruination and the destruction of all that made the Western World strong. Choosing to lose ourselves in a culture of any culture of the moment is the culture we desire to raise up, but we cannot raise up debauchery and the damnation of human life as equal to the pursuit of a good life spent rejoicing in the gift that life provides and not seeking some manner of faith which demands of us surrender or die, such is a choice without a choice. We need return to our former ideals which permit those whose cultures differ to continue such practice in their private times and spaces such as their homes and houses of worship, but also we demanded they accept our cultural rules when in public. The Western culture allowed for certain irregularities such as special religious clothing being worn in public and even providing areas for prayer permitting such did not interfere with the performance of one’s job and was committed off the clock and on the individual’s own time as the whole cannot be forced to pay them for their private time spent praying and not producing things of mutual gain as that is what working at a job is, producing things for mutual gains, a cooperative effort and a central pillar of our traditional society.

 

Schools were a place where we learned about our mutual culture and were able to master those basic tenets which supported the society, and where we learned how to think and not so much exactly what to think though guidelines were imposed and what was out of bounds was ingrained. We even learned to cooperate through sports where we also learned the easy joys of winning and even more importantly how to cope with losing and thus with failure. The best amongst us learned that failure was not the end but rather a stop where we reassessed our priorities and assumptions making changes where we found things in error or lacking altogether and then proceeded on towards our ultimate goal. Further we learned, were we that fortunate, lucky even, that failures come in the thousands and that success comes only to those willing to fail and fail repeatedly and learning from each failure where we diverted from our goals and how to get back on track. Are there ideas whose failure is guaranteed and where one can never fully achieve the goal? Yes. We can never make a machine which is 100% efficient as in all things there is that degree of wasted effort, effort which does not contribute to the completion and realization of the goal. In a machine that goal is the product such as a generator making electricity; we use water, steam, explosive fuels all to drive the generator to make electricity but there are losses to friction and pushing the generator against the resistive magnetic forces induced in the coils which does not directly produce the electricity but which must be overcome. The same is true in life. Sleep is something our bodies must submit to or we will eventually collapse and possibly die. Still, it is sometimes in our dreams that the spark bursts forth solving some vexing problem which assists the project to completion. Such is an exception and even that spark was not the only dream we enjoyed or endured, and there were the periods of sleep which were used as a dedicated means of repairing and preparing the body for the next day. Another item which obviously diverts us from achieving goals but may be necessary in order to reach our goals are the failures along the way. Lessor peoples will allow failures to prevent them from trying and just surrender to their failures. That is not an intricate part of our society until recently when we found ways of rewarding those who become mired in failure.

 

Another casualty in our modern society is the loosening of the moral structure. In the lives of the vast majority of the population, and to a limited extent to all of the population not restricted to an asylum (do we even have asylums any longer to care for the elderly and the comatose?) as we all wear clothing though some wear far less than others; we all eat and sleep as nature insists on these; and we all live and let live because if large segments of the society, and it need not be more than ten to twenty percent of a society, take to being belligerent and resorting to murdering those who they fear or refuse to submit; then the society will fracture and it will soon become a free-for-all with every faction against the rest; see Libya, Syria or Iraq for current examples. What many do not realize is this is rapidly becoming the definition of Western culture. The society of the Western World has become unmoored and without an anchor with which to tie off and provide immovability, permanence and the Western World has rapidly been cranking the centerboard retrieving it from below the boat allowing the winds to blow us as they may while our ability to steer the boat has failed without the centerboard. That centerboard was western Judeo-Christian ethics and the anchor was the ideal of hard work will produce and provide for one and one’s family and charity would take care of the few who for reasons often beyond their control are unable to find a place within our society. We did not used to change our society such that everybody’s quirks or the beliefs of those coming to our shores being used as a cudgel with which to beat and force us to alter our religious and social structures which we have held dear fashioning our societal norms around and have worked just fine for us and is tried and true. Therein lies the current problem, we in the West have doubted our own culture while allowing another culture whose adherents have little doubt that it is superior to all the Western World has ever known and that the Western World must be cowed and beaten into submission, and that is termed our surrendering to Allah. Do not mistake Allah for the same as G0d in our Judeo-Christian society as Hashem does not demand surrender but instead reason, trust and faith. The easiest manner to present a difference is to look at the lineage of belief. In Judeo-Christian ethics the line of faith flows through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob while Islam and Allah follow the lineage of belief through Abraham, Ishmael and Mohammad. Perhaps this is as good a place to stop before I get into deeper troubles and this is way more sufficient amount to chew of for one day. With any luck I’ll get into this stranger side of my reasoning after a decent period of rest. Thank you all for reading this far and may your life be blessed only with those failings which aid you in your journeys and make you a stronger and better you, even if others spend some time confused at what you are trying to say, and boy have I spent time on that bus.

We all knew this day would eventually come and now it has arrived, the conducting of an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into Israeli actions during their wars against Arab forces which instigated these wars and skirmishes by their terrorist activities. The area of scrutiny will be this past summer’s war between Gaza Hamas terrorists who had initiated the conflict with the launching of thousands of rockets into Israeli towns and cities aiming not for military targets but for civilian homes, businesses as well as schools, camps, daycares, hospitals and other civilian locations. ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said her office would conduct an “analysis in full independence and impartiality” into supposed war crimes by Israel, including accusations from Hamas’s most recent terror war against Israel last summer. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda is currently one of the Chief Prosecutors of the International Criminal Court where she had previously been a Deputy Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court. She is a native of Gambia and attended law school at University of Ife Nigerian Law School International Maritime Law Institute. Some might wonder why the ICC has dedicated their Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on an investigation of Israeli actions and not assigned a prosecutor to investigate Bashir al-Assad and Syria, ISIS, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or Boko Haram for their far more obvious criminal actions and threats they pose to the societies and nations in their vicinity. Could one of the mitigating factors be that Israel is a liberal democracy with freedom of the press and is an open book making any investigation much easier and that Israel offers a safe location in which to perform ones investigations and a ready supply of functioning five star hotels perched right on pristine beaches with an active and cultured night life while investigating these other far more worthy targets for crimes against humanity and war crimes are far more dangerous, have limited accommodations while conducting the investigation and simply looking into actions of these entities could easily result in great danger to those conducting such investigations. I am sure such creature comforts and relative safety had little to do with the decision to investigate Israel and none of these other entities. If I were to be detached and honest about the choices in prosecuting Israel over Syria, Boko Haram, ISIS or al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula by the Honorable Fatou Bensouda, I would completely agree with her choice as by comparison any groundwork to be performed in Israel, even if it included daytime trips into Gaza and seeking Hamas members for their giving interrogatories and affidavits, I too would most certainly decide to investigate Israel and would take my sweet time about it even knowing and being fully aware even before I started that if any irregularities or infractions were found and Israeli officials, either or both political or military, were made aware that Israel would immediately begin their own investigation and prosecution if one were seemed warranted. What many in the world might find hard to fathom but I feel I can predict this accurately and with little risk of being disproven, if the ICC demanded to be privileged to the entire investigation and to co-investigate the Israelis would welcome the assistance and expertise the ICC investigator could provide. Would any of the other entities which the ICC has thus far refused to launch any investigations be anywhere near as cooperative or even assure the investigator and their support staff’s safety to anywhere near the level that they will receive in Israel?

 

The reason being provided by the ICC’s Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, “A preliminary examination is not an investigation but a process of examining the information available in order to reach a fully informed determination on whether there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an (actual complete) investigation.” Needless to point out, Israel has deplored the needless investigation and pointed out that the Palestinian Authority is not a nation and thus may not call for an ICC investigation nor can it actually receive ICC membership. It was also pointed out that the war in Gaza pitted Israel against Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists who consistently ignore all the laws of warfare and regularly target civilian Israelis while utilizing the civilians in Gaza as human shields for their fighters and rocket launchers and have regularly placed their leadership within a bunker built underneath Gaza’s largest hospital to assure Israel will not target the Hamas leadership. Further, it is noted that Israel uses their military to protect their civilians as proven by the Iron Dome systems and their saving of Israeli civilians in the last war and that Hamas and Islamic Jihad use their civilians to protect their weapons of war and fighters. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu stated emphatically that, “Israel rejects the absurd decision of the ICC prosecutor. It’s absurd for the ICC to ignore international law and agreements, under which the Palestinians don’t have a state and can only get one through direct negotiations with Israel.” Earlier in the day Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman took to the offense accusing the ICC of starting an investigation in order to “try to harm Israel’s right to defend itself from terror.” He further accused that the ICC was “solely motivated by political anti-Israel considerations,” and he further stated he would advise against any Israeli cooperation with the probe. Cooler heads will prevail as nothing will be gained by refusing to cooperate. But should the investigation prove to be more witch hunt than honest seeking of information and truth, then expect a very public explosion of accusations from across most of the political spectrum against the Honorable Fatou Bensouda and her staff and expect them to be invited to depart from Israel controlled areas. Since Israel removed themselves from membership in the ICC they are not obliged to offer cooperation or to subject their people to rulings or trial by the ICC and should the ICC convict any Israelis of war crimes or crimes against humanity they will be investigated by Israel as well and if found guilty of such crimes the ICC will be the least of their troubles. Surprisingly, the United States, even including the State Department, have come out in complete agreement with the Israelis in that the Palestinians are not a recognized nation nor a state by the definitions of statehood. And oddly, there is an actual treaty which is accepted as providing the legal definitions of what an entity is required to meet to be recognized as a state and thus be accepted by international conventions, agendas, treaties and other legalities. The definition for recognizing an entity as a state they must first meet the definitions within the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States, something which virtually every international lawyer and is used by the United Nations and the majority of nations. Just in case anyone is curious, the Palestinians do not meet the requirements in the Montevideo Convention to qualify as a state.

 

I guess we have reached the point where I get to get myself in trouble by making predictions which could also qualify as guessing or taking stabs in the night while blindfolded. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda will spend over four months and demand Israel provides more documentation than any reasonable person might find necessary. Numerous prolonged trips to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to gather information and to research the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and their actions in Gaza this past summer will be required with most coming during the winter months when Tel Aviv is nice and warm and the ICC home in the Hague in the Netherlands is experiencing wonderful winter weather with near or below freezing temperatures and horrific rain or snow and Tel Aviv has weather suitable for swimming in the Mediterranean. Well, as long as one is not a skier or ice skater, where would you rather be in the middle of the winter, freezing in the Netherlands or swimming in the Mediterranean even if it requires you to visit Israel. Me too and I already live less than five blocks from the Mediterranean in Israel but fortunately not Tel Aviv. The Honorable Fatou Bensouda will refuse to comment quoting regulations and restrictions which do allow for the Prosecutors’ Offices from commenting on an ongoing investigation. She also will not want to let out that she has completed all the investigation necessary to reach a determination but with next winter arriving in a few months why give up on a reason to escape the worst of the winter weather swimming in the Mediterranean. The inevitable result will be, at the worst, one or two potential investigations which Israel will have completed proper investigations and have prosecuted any deserving soldiers or commanders which will negate the need for an ICC intervention. There has already been one investigation launched about six weeks ago into a potential situation which may require hearings or even a trial. The earliest hearings were held against a commander who was exonerated from the charges of refusing to pass information which may have caused investigations within his units to higher-ups but the investigation resulted in turning up the actual paperwork which had been filed with his superiors negating any suspicions or need for further actions. When the ICC Prosecutors’ Office releases their report signed and approved by the Honorable Fatou Bensouda revealing that no discrepancies or criminal investigation has been determined to be required and that the IDF has been cleared of any wrongdoings over their actions during the war with Hamas and the terror entities in Gaza during the Protective Edge operations over the summer there will be denounced and the Arab Authority, PLO, Fatah, Hamas and other Arab spokespersons will take turns denouncing the ICC for being duped or controlled by the Israelis or by the Jews who have infiltrated the Prosecutors’ Offices and tainted their impartiality. The Arab League will convene an emergency meeting to address the crisis caused by the obviously politicized lack of findings of guilt of war crimes committed by Israel during the summer war. It would not be surprising for the Arab nations or the Palestinian Liberation Organization to take a petition to the United Nations General Assembly demanding that they pass a resolution demanding that the ICC act on the crimes against humanity and war crimes which they must have discovered during their investigations and immediately make those crimes known to the world such that those guilty Israeli soldiers are able to be tried by European nations who claim international jurisdiction and demand that the IDF can be roundly condemned by the United Nations General Assembly in lieu of any action from the ICC. At the least the condemnation will be passed by the General Assembly and potentially there will be another resolution demanding the ICC release the entirety of their presumably confidential findings complaining that the summation and report they provided was inadequate and the General Assembly desires to review all of the evidence to determine what crimes were overlooked by the ICC under duress exerted by Israel and the Jewish world lobby. The grousing by Abbas, Erekat, Haniyeh, Mashaal and the rest of the Arab spokespersons even to include Ministers of the Knesset Zoabi and Tibi and others that there must have been dubious findings which had to be the result of evil influences which forced the ICC to issue their report exonerating the IDF which obviously had to have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. The overwhelming evidence, they will claim, was evidenced by the lack of Israeli civilian casualties compared to the overwhelming numbers of civilian casualties suffered by the citizens of Gaza. This disparity can only be explained by war crimes and the IDF targeting the civilians and could not have been the result of Hamas using their civilian population as shields for their rocket launchers and terrorist fighters or by the Iron Dome intercepting virtually all of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets fired which were likely to strike inhabited areas. There will be some European justices who will accept the Arab accusations and will issue warrants for the IDF hierarchy and potentially issue warrants for Israeli politicians in high office or holding Ministerial positions. Eventually everything will calm down and the warrants will lapse or be cancelled outright and the end will come when the Arab whining politicians have wrought all the media coverage they can from their whining about the evil Israelis and treacherous Jews. By then there will be something else with which to condemn Israel and demand that Israel be forced to conform to any and all demands made by the Arab Authority.
