Once upon a time not so long ago Israel was the plucky little nation that could. What could that little nation the size of New Jersey do? Well, it could survive genocidal attacks from all fronts and several nations despite being grossly outnumbered and facing overwhelming odds. It could manage to have a capitalist system which included a core of social programs which cared for its people and through socialist structured kibbutzim was able to produce food and goods to such an extent as to export some of the world’s finest produce. Israel was that enigma wrapped in a puzzle surrounded by a query contained in a whirlwind of options that managed to survive. Israel used to be the proof that dreams can come to fruition and survive even against the harshest of threatening neighborhoods. So, what went awry? When did the train jump the tracks?

 

The answer is even more surprising than what one might imagine and so surprising that it is obviously simple, Israel was too successful and was making things work while those around the world kept falling behind by comparison. Israel was successful by taking the opposite road than the rest of the world had chosen. And Israel was pilloried by a sinister plot hatched to destroy her by the most vile measures of lies, innuendo, spite and infamy. Israel became the target upon which every nation, every peoples, every entity could measure their resentment against and join together to destroy this nation of the Jews, this Jewish entity amongst the nations of the world. Israel was to be treated to an unseen anti-Semitic assault not seen for almost two-thousand years. Israel was being returned to her former glory amongst the nations of the known world, of her known world, the nations singled out by every empire, ever conqueror, every abysmal force of contempt and evil which could arise from the human condition. Israel became the excuse for the failures of the everyman, the causation of every calamity, the target for all hatreds, disgusts, accusations, vile temperament which denied every definition as it refused to break no matter how twisted, bent, beaten or broken, Israel survived and came to return and thrive again.

 

It took a small amount of time before the obvious became noticed and once noticed became the raison d’etre for a hatred based in anti-Semitism but leveled at an international level equal to the forerunner which was the force spawned and inspiring the full force with which the Ancient Egyptians brought to borne against it as did subsequent powers as the Philistines, the Assyrian Empire, the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, the Greek Empire, and the Roman Empire. The destructive forces and vile contempt did not end with the simple dispersal of the Judean remnant of the Israelites to the furthest corners throughout the great expanse of Rome, no, Rome also continued a level of persecution against these shreds of a peoples, these shards which remained as they continued to practice and perform individually the rites which would hold them as a people throughout the coming ages.

 

In this Diaspora the one family of Judah, the one tribe of the Jews became two separate entities, the Ashkenazim of central Europe and the Sephardim of Spain and across all of Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) and eventually expelled from Spain with the Inquisition. Throughout these periods the Jews would face perils as they were beaten down and persecuted beginning with the immediate forces of the Roman Empire which had placed them strewn across the known world, followed by the Byzantine Empire, the Crusaders, the early Muslims in their origins of Mecca and Medina starting with the Battle of Khaybar, the Crusaders, the Caliph of Baghdad, al-Muqtadi imposition of Dhimmitude forced Jewish males to wear distinctive yellow mark upon their headgear to denote their Jewish religion and a weight around their neck marked Dhimmi and was the initial use of a yellow mark which would later become the Nazi source for the marking of Jews with the yellow star on their clothing, a series of pogroms and expulsions marked the lives of both the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim to such extents that it would be difficult to list all these events as in some cases, many probably still unknown, every Jew residing in a town, city, fiefdom or other demarked area might have been put to the sword, burned at the stake or other form of mass execution leaving no survivor to tell of the events thus passing without note unless related by the history of the designated area cleansed of its Jews.

 

Some of the more famous such events such as the Spanish Inquisition where Jews were forced to convert to Catholicism and if suspected of continuing to practice Judaism stealthily within the confines of their homes they were dragged into the street or town square and executed often in as horrific a manner as possible. Across Europe the Jews were often burned at the stake or murdered in other manners or simply expelled as the plague struck the Jewish sections of towns nowhere nearly as hard as it did the Christian areas due to the regimented cleaning of the Jewish homes annually for Passover when removing Chametz (leavened breads cakes etc.) thus less rodents and fleas carrying the plague existed in the Jewish areas by comparison. The locals would often claim that this was due to the Jews having contaminated the Christians wells causing their greater rate of plague and a pogrom would be organized which often after torturing and murdering some of the Jews the rest were forced from their location forced to flee with what they were capable of taking with them. Jews often found their families having to decide what to take and how long they should linger packing and remain safe.

 

In more modern times the main persecutions were propagated by the Czars who went so far as to write the book “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” which described the plot by the Jews to rule the world which was preposterous but even today in parts of the world these writings are still produced as proof of a Jewish plot to rule the world through devious and manipulative means. When the Communists replaced the Czars, despite many leading Jews assisting the rise to power, the Jews still were separated for special treatment and eventually simply persecuted outright. There was Nazi Germany and the Holocaust which destroyed over one-third of the Jewish world’s population, probably one of the greatest decimations of Jewish lives since the fall of the Northern Kingdom of Israel which was conquered by the Assyrians never to be recovered until modern times as these disparate tribes are being found throughout the globe and being brought back within the fold in Israel. The latest threat is growing in power and gaining weapons capable of unbelievable destruction by Iran and the outcome between Israel and the Iranian threat is still to be decided. It is looking more dire each passing day and one wonders how Israel will be able to find a path for her survival once again.

 

Facing the hatreds and attempts of continued decimations the individual Jew remained an identity always apart, always different, always struggling and striving towards that promised day their scroll, their Torah gave hope to the belief that eventually the dry bones would face one final crushing blow from which they would miraculously begin to grow sinews as they reassembled in the form of human skeletons and would grow flesh and appear as the flesh and bone remnants of a people from the Holocaust, the Shoah, and would grow muscles and return to their national homelands where the early Zionist had already gathered and prepared for their arrival. And then came the great purges throughout the rest of the nations of the world, the nations of MENA and the Sephardim followed on the heels of the Ashkenazim and were brought into their homelands and rejoined their family. The dry bones finally regrown were capable of further miracles every day and as the miracles grew and so the favor from what many referred to as the fates, but we knew was G0d our Father and our Staff when we grew weary and in need of support and Who would give us the power to wield that staff when set upon by other nations and once again His favor did shine upon us. The miracles happen in small increments daily with the little miracles, those miracles which explain the otherwise unexplainable because, as Torah teaches us, there is no such thing as coincidence, luck, or happenstance; just G0d’s will to shower every single day with His saving grace and love.

 

Then there are the much larger miracles, the ones we hear and can only take in the shock of the magnitude of certain unexplainable events. The victory in the Six Day War in June of 1967 was an obvious series of miracles as virtually everything went as well or better than expected. Even the altering of plans to fight on an additional front upon Jordan entering the conflict on the second day, or later during the first twenty-four hours, was successful and did not hinder the front against Egypt from where the reinforcements were redirected to go into Jerusalem where they made our sacred home back in Israeli hands. There was the eventual victory in the Yom Kippur War in October of 1983 when initially it appeared as if Israel was to be overrun. Then there was an utterly inexplicable event which was but a single instance which could have ended so poorly but whose circumstance was as beyond belief as was the saving grace which a battery of the Iron Dome system were to witness. We first reported on this event in our article How to Fight Terrorist Fanatics Unless You’re Israel where we quoted the story as reported in Israel Today titled “Iron Dome Operator: God Moved Missile We Couldn’t Hit”. Here is the story once again;

 

“A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.”

“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.”

“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that…sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a G0d!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of G0d send that missile into the sea.”

 

Now, that was a miracle similar in kind and impact which was Bible worthy as thousands of lives were spared and the lack of other explanations was impossible. This was evidence of the hand of G0d at work as a pick-up in the wind is insufficient to move a rocket that far off its trajectory that late in its traverse such as to push the rocket a mere few feet but over a mile from its course in the final half mile or less of its traversal to target. What better place to end this article than with the realities of the force and faith in the L0rd our G0d and G0d of the universe for all people to love and share his love and acceptance of each and every last one of us no matter our past as long as we are making efforts to improve ourselves and be a shining example in His eyes.

Every once in a while the writing of an article virtually daily gets to a point where you ask yourself if perhaps you are looking so hard at a few items that you may be missing the big picture. You realize that you have burrowed into one subject and you have to take stock and realize if maybe this one main has consumed you. I was thinking that perhaps the whole Iran toxic miasma which has surrounded me and others might be hiding something just as important or even more threatening and pressing that it may be time to look elsewhere for another angle or new subject. So why don’t we try and see some of the other items of the day that are happening and see what we can decipher.

 

One of the items I have seen rising is the challenges to the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. The claim is as valid as can be, the charge that he is an illegitimate leader since he has not been elected to the post and it is way past time for him to stand for reelection and answer the rising challenges from others who believe he has become obsolete and his belief that he can be President for Life is far too dictatorial and the Arab people deserve an elected leader who is more in tune with their hopes and dreams. The challenge comes from a man who desires to unseat Abbas as President of Fatah and to restructure Fatah to serve the real desires of the Arab people and their desire for a whole and entire state. There was only one small fly in this ointment which makes it as illegitimate as Abbas and potentially even worse. The person behind this Abbas must stand for election now or give up his right to lead does not have the desires of the Arab people living west of the Jordan River in mind. How can I make such a statement? Well, easily as the person making this demand the loudest is likely the man who would try and unseat him and take his place, Mahmoud al-Zahar. For those unfamiliar with Mahmoud al-Zahar allow me to fill in some of the more pertinent information. Mahmoud al-Zahar is a long-time Hamas leader who vilifies Abbas as being too passive and not seeking the desire of the Arabs of destroying Israel and replacing it with the heart of the next Caliphate blessed with the blood of every Israeli and Arab living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea who fails to meet his standard of belief and dedication to a rising Islamic supremacy which will, as per the Hamas Charter, seek out every corner of the world and annihilate every Jew and disbeliever. This would be a frightening thought for somebody who may actually be a credible threat to replace Abbas as the leader of Fatah and then become a legitimate claimant to lead the Authority. Fortunately, al-Zahar is a member of Hamas and not Fatah, not that this would prevent him from running to replace Abbas, presumably making him ineligible to run for the position. If he were to challenge Abbas as the leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA) then he would have a legitimate claim to the position as the unity government is technically in place and valid. Perhaps this makes it feasible for al-Zahar to attempt to unseat Abbas from Fatah, who knows the inner workings, dysfunctional as they may be, of the Arab Fatah Party structure and whether the unity government would add its blessing to such a challenge. But fear not for if one looks deeply enough into the eyes of al-Zahar and peers into his darkened soul one would find the heart of a true Hamas leader whose ideas and ideals come partially from hatreds he is steeped in as a leader of Hamas and gained locally and there are further drives for an Arab entity to replace all the lands west of the Jordan River including all of Israel and purify such a nation in blood. A look just slightly deeper into al-Zahar’s soul and one finds the hands of Iran manipulating many of his actions and implanting desires of leading a victorious Arab army conquering the lands and cleansing them for his Iranian masters. There for all to witness is the driving heart of al-Zahar; simply another soldier of Iran waiting anxiously for the day when the order is given to rise up and claim all the lands which are Israel for his Iranian masters.

 

Then one can decide to look further afield to the new interest in Argentine where the official Offices of the Prosecutors is not only looking into the mysterious death of one of their own, Alberto Nisman, who was assassinated the morning right before he was scheduled to present his findings concerning the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA; Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) where eighty-five people were murdered and the injured numbered over three-hundred. Alberto Nisman had presumably uncovered evidence which implicated criminal accusations which he had filed against President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Apparently Mr. Nisman discovered plans, a plot even, to permit the attack by Hezballah and Iranian terrorists on the Jewish Community Center in a deal in which it was believed that the Argentine government had sought the arrangement as part of a trade pact with Iran. So, here again we find Iran’s sticky little terrorist fingers only this time the deeds appear to have been carried out by Hezballah in conjunction with the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps or “Pasdaran”) both operating out of the “Tri-Border Region” which is a long standing center for the training and launching point for terrorist activities in the Americas located where the borders of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil conjoin allowing for each nation to ignore the town and training areas set up by the IRGC along with Hezballah claiming it is within the other two national areas of jurisdictions and as such they have no powers under which to investigate. It appears that the tri-border facility has a really nice set-up going there on the border of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil and financed and directed by the IRGC enforcing the interests and policies of Iran in the Americas. So, here to it all leads back to the Mullahs in Iran.

 

There have been warnings from the IDF over the possibility of a front opening up other than the expected repeat of last summer and the firing of rockets from out of Gaza into most of Israel, with as anywhere from a thousand to fifteen-hundred rockets each day from out of Lebanon and probably mainly from Syria onto the entirety of Israel and with some longer range rockets actually being new missiles which have excellent accuracy and may prove to be a large problem should they be used to target Tel Aviv or the Dimona Nuclear Research Site outside of the Capital of the South, Beer-Sheva. The main perpetrator of these rockets and missiles which will reach the entire length of Israel is largely Hezballah possibly receiving some support from the IRGC. These attacks will be directed from Tehran and may come in support of the rocket attacks from Gaza and possibly some from the Sinai Peninsula. Unsurprisingly, the orders for both the barrages from the north as well as those from the south by Hamas will be at the directive from where else, that’s right, Iran.

 

Apparently there is a good reason why almost all of our posts have been concerning Iran and their apparent drive for nuclear weapons and President Obama’s naiveté in his handling of the entire negotiations. President Obama is accomplishing two objectives simultaneously by allowing Iran all the time they require to realize their needs for nuclear weapons and refining them to produce a device capable of delivering a knockout electromagnetic pulse (EMP) along the design provided Iran by Russia for their super EMP device which was originally intended by the Soviet Union to deliver a knockout punch to either the European Union electrical grid or to destroy the United States and partially the Canadian electronic grids. This or any other nuclear device would appear to be the goal of the Iranians to continue the negotiations which, for the benefit of Iran would be to continue until they had sufficient devices to allow the usage of one device as a notification that the Iranians have arrived at the gates to the nuclear group demanding admittance and recognition. To continue the talks after such a demonstration would prove to be a further exercise in futility. The question then becomes what does the world do about a nuclear armed Iran and what does Iran do to further the reach of its already extensive network of tentacles reaching even to the far corners of the globe originating in Tehran.

 

We know of the very long and reinforced tentacle through which any strikes on the United States would be directed. Currently this tentacle can reach anywhere in South America through the tri-border area, the area which is currently focused on Buenos Aires and the investigation and eventually the potential trial of those implicated and arrests warrants issued which may implicate Tehran or Lebanon and Hezballah leaders. Such an eventuality might trigger the start of the planned assault on Israel from both directions, both along the northern front and the southern fronts. Should Iran desire to carry out any terrorist activities within the United States, such activities would easily be facilitated and provided access into the United States using their connections with the Mexican drug cartels who Hezballah has trained in tactics and other techniques used by Hezballah to all but run the country of Lebanon where they have free range to train, recruit and plan exercises which has made them one of the finest armies assisting Bashir al-Assad to continue his reign of murder and terror over the nation of Syria. Needless to point out but additionally Iran and Hezballah likely have numerous cells within the United States just waiting for the day they are activated to conduct a mission. The faithful execution of any missions such cells may be utilized to commit is often assured through holding family members within Lebanon as persuasion over their actions and trusted loyalty. We know Iran has extensive abilities to strike anywhere within the Americas as we witnessed in two separate bombings in Argentina the first was the bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, with the second being the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) on July 18, 1994, both in Buenos Aires. These were both perpetrated, as best as we can ascertain, by Hezballah trained operatives with the aid of special agents sent to the Tri-Border Region often in order for them to advance within the Basenji or the ranks of the IRGC, which both have initiation rites, one needs to successfully complete a terrorist operation in order to be considered trustworthy and committed.

 

On the European front there have been a number of terrorist attacks which potentially could have been traced back to Hezballah and Iran with the most recognized being the bombing of the Israeli tourist bus at the Burgas airport along the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. The threats posed by Hezballah have driven the European Union to have placed the “military wing” of Hezballah on their terrorist list, as if there is a non-militant wing of Hezballah. The European reference to the military wing is done so as to allow the Europeans to provide Hezballah funds in Lebanon for such things as building libraries, health clinics and the like which are actually built by the Lebanese government which has not been totally co-opted by Hezballah, at least not currently. There was also a Cyprus magistrate who in March of 2013 indicted a Hezballah courier in Plot to Attack Israeli Tourists. There exist terrorist entities within the civil strife ongoing in Libya which unsurprising as virtually any terrorist groups even to include both ISIS and al-Qaeda have splinter groups inside Libya. Their representation in Libya is just one example of Hezballah presence in northern Africa. In the Middle East there have been reports recently that Hezballah has offered the Houthis in Yemen assistance if they feel it would benefit their efforts. Everybody by now knows that the Iranians have been supplying guns, ammunition, crew-served weapons and the training with the more advanced weapons to assist them in their conquest of the remainder of Yemen. And then there are the Iranians who appear to have completely taken over the ground operations against ISIS in Iraq so completely that the Iranian commanders are the people making the calls for airstrikes. This is a development which should be cause for alarm on behalf of the European and United States pilots and their actual commanders to be relying so completely on Iranian officers and even enlisted men of which most likely belong to the IRGC, a group considered as a borderline or actually declared terrorists and they are now calling in allied air strikes. How are the pilots to know that their strikes are supporting ground actions and not supporting the wonton destruction of property and lives being carried out by the Shiite IRGC members who have been murdering Sunni Iraqis who survived the ISIS occupation and are not facing violence and destruction often by Iraqi troops who actively aid in the destruction of entire Sunni villages and neighborhoods.

 

Finally we get back to the root source of so much of the terrorist and militia violence around the world and who stands as the commander of cells who could turn Europe or the United States into a roiling turmoil striking at soft targets such as malls holding special weekend only sales events, state and county fairs, political rallies, sporting events or anywhere that a large number of people would be attending making for a rich field of victims simply provided for the murdering much as happened in Nairobi, Kenya or the Embassy attacks using car-bomb attacks in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Whether any assaults by terrorist murderers were actually perpetrated by directly linkable entities to Iran or belonging to al-Qaeda or Hamas, both Sunni Muslim terrorist groups, have received safe quarter, training, arming and whatever other resources these presumably enemy Sunni entities to the majority Shiite Iran, but Iran is pragmatic and willing to assist in any actions which will harm Israeli or Western interests and pressure democratic governments potentially causing their collapse. Iran has been behind so many different murderous attacks and has tentacles reaching across the entirety of the globe such that the terror attack planned for next week, or next month or whenever you least expect it, hold sure that it very well will be traceable to Iranian assistance or actual manpower and arms support. Those who accuse Iran of being the greatest sponsor of terrorism on the face of the Earth are serious and know of what they speak. Iran changed drastically largely due to the incompetence and unfathomably simple-minded reasoning by then United States President Jimmy Carter.

 

He rationalized that the Shah of Iran who was methodically bringing Iran forward integrating advanced Western technological and manufacturing possibly even with the intent of eventually installing democratic principles, but all President Carter saw was a wealthy despot taking wealth from his people. On the other side President Carter believed that the Ayatollah Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini had to be a kind and benevolent person as he was a cleric and religious person. Needless to say but President Carter knew little or nothing, if even that much, about Islam and the messianic message commanding that Islam must be spread by any and all means necessary until it becomes the only religion for all mankind on planet Earth and that the Ayatollah Khomeini was a man dedicated to that end. President Carter accepted the promises from Ayatollah Khomeini that he would establish a Western style democracy and grant the people of Iran freedoms and rights beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations. Well, we can assume that the Ayatollah delivered on the actions beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations when the Ayatollah allowed, some like I believe aided and planned, the takeover of the United States Embassy followed by a four-hundred-forty-four days until the next President, Ronald Reagan, was inaugurated at which point fearing and immediate war being launched by the new President, ended the siege and returned the hostages. After the final release of every last hostage, the truths about some of the treatment received by the hostages with some being accused of being spies and torture used to coerce confessions and other atrocities, the full and shocking story was finally told. It is good to know that the Iranian leadership has not changed that much from the early days in 1979 when Ayatollah Khomeini returned triumphantly and installed his theocracy and all the horrors one might imagine.

 

Now we have President Barrack Obama who looks to Iran and sees a potential ally who can replace the current United States allies of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel and take over as the hegemonic power in the Middle East which will not require United States military presence, an ultimate goal of President Obama, removing the United States military presence from everywhere outside the American borders. Iran, now under the rule of Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, has changed as little as the names of its rulers’ have, from Khomeini to Khamenei. The Ayatollah Khamenei is more than happy and quite eager to take advantage of every possible advantage he realizes he holds over President Obama. This has been most evident in the nuclear arms negotiations where the representatives for the United States state their position and the Iranian negotiators state their position. Then the debate begins eventually leading to a one-on-one meeting behind closed doors between United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister and Chief Negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif. These are often long and drawn-out sessions and when they finally are completed the two men meet with their respective teams and negotiations continue with one slight alteration, the United States negotiators are now assisting the Iranian in pressing their positions on France, Britain and Germany. This has been the basic functioning premise of the negotiations with it becoming almost comical had it not also been such a disaster for the western world including Israel and the Middle East especially for Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Jordan and I guess we can include Israel again as it does seem to be twice as much trouble where Israel is concerned. The one nation which appears will win no matter which side, Saudi Arabia or Iran, becomes the leader of the Islamic world, and that is Turkey which is sitting on both sides of the fence. In the meantime the Iranians are spinning their way to nuclear weapons and holding the biggest club over the Middle East, North Africa and eventually Europe and capable of going toe-to-toe with Russia as by then Iran will be the hegemonic power of half of the world and well on their way to completing the dream of Islam since 765 A.D. Much of the most recent round of nuclear negotiation talks have been the stuff of nightmares and are promising to only get worse. There is no actual candidate who will play savior and come dashing over the hill riding high on his white stallion with a white Stetson atop his head blowing the bugle for the cavalry to charge in and save the day. I fear that President Obama has had the cavalry’s steeds sold off for a bag of magic beans. The question is will the world be capable of surviving the events yet to happen over the next two years. How much damage will be done by an Iranian menace cut loose and armed with nuclear warheads to enforce their will, how does the world coexist with that? Do we all survive a messianic cult with dreams of an eventual battle which engulfs the world and only then does their messiah arrive and grant them victory over a world made mostly of radioactive dust. What can we do and how can we do whatever will prevent the destruction of all everybody knows.

The title is an interesting question no matter which direction you take aim, at Israeli building beyond the Green Line or perhaps other kinds of building beyond the Green Line. The European Union and numerous European governments’ claims against Israeli building beyond the Green Line, even within Jerusalem which Israel has annexed and granted citizenship with one guard in that they are allowed to vote in local elections for Jerusalem government positions including Mayor and the parliament but are restricted for now from voting in national elections until after the final borders have been set by negotiations and then further rights will be decided. Whether any building beyond the Green Line by Israel is colonialism or simply building on lands initially proposed as areas Israel would retain depends on a number of agreements and definitions. If you base your definitions on International Law then you might be surprised that according to treaties established after World War I and before the League of Nations and which set up the Mandate System which set certain lands to be reserved for establishing certain states for different populations, then you might want to read the San Remo Agreement which set up the British Mandate in order to establish a Jewish state. The British Mandate extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the western border of Iraq and from the French Mandate lands to the north and to Egypt and Saudi Arabia in the south. This was set aside for the Jewish state where by the dictates of the San Remo Agreement the Jewish state was to be a place reserved for the homeland of the Jewish people with provisions that any other people residing within the Mandate lands were entitled to religious freedom, freedom of speech, respected integrity of land ownership and other freedoms with the singular exception of political rights which were to remain under control of the Jewish leadership once the British determined there was sufficient Jewish presence to retain political and legal control over the lands.

 

This is where things became interesting. A few years into the British Mandate the numbers of Arabs moving into the Mandate areas was growing attracted by the promising increase in the economic activity which had begun growing in the second half of the Nineteenth Century with the initial outset of the Zionist movement and Jews starting to return to their ancestral homelands. The returning Jews added to an already healthy Jewish majority within Jerusalem, a presence and majority which stretched back almost three thousand years as these were Jews who had resided in Jerusalem since before the invasion by Alexander the Great and remained in Jerusalem surviving the atrocities and attempt to disperse the Jewish people to the far flung edges of the Roman Empire so as to punish them and destroy the Jewish people for all future time. The British under the name of Winston Churchill offered the Zionist Congress, the legal Jewish governance within and without of the British Mandate lands, a proposition where the British would be permitted to establish an Arab state for the Palestinian Arabs east of the Jordan River while the lands west of the Jordan River on to the Mediterranean Sea would remain inviolate for the Jewish state into the future and this would also allow the British to be able to make good on their promise to the Hashemite Family to give them lands to rule in exchange for their assistance in World War I, a promise probably made by T. E. Lawrence. The Zionist took the offer despite it reallocating over three-quarters (78%) of the British Mandate leaving them a narrow strip hugging the Mediterranean Sea as it was to their advantage to grant the Arabs their own lands thus they would be better situated to reach a majority population more readily. At this time the British referenced the Jews by calling them Palestinians and the Arabs were called Arabs or Egyptians, Syrians (the largest percentage of the Arab population as Syrian lands under the Ottoman Empire included all of both the French and British Mandates), Turks, Iraqis, Saudis, Tunisians, Yemeni, and other tribal names or even Arab Palestinians, in the case of mixed parentage which was rather common as time passed. By these stipulations the world’s scrambling and screaming to see who can be first to force a new Arab nation west of the Jordan River next to Israel and on as much land as is humanly possible are all working against International Law and many, if not all, of them are fully aware of this deceit.

 

But what if one believes the claims that an Arab state belongs sharing the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea with Israel because Gaza and Judea and Samaria (called the “West Bank” by Jordan during their illegal occupation after the invasion to destroy the Jewish state after its birth in 1948) were never a part of Israel proper? This also gets into problems the further one peals back the layers of the onion. Let’s look a little deeper and see how it was the Gaza, Judea and Samaria became believed to be rightful Arab lands. Before Israel was born there was a decision made by the United Nations General Assembly recommending a means of the forming of two states starting on May 15, 1948, with one being Jewish and one being Arab. This resolution was like every other resolution out of the General Assembly of the United Nations, a simple suggestion which in order to be binding must be accepted by all parties to the resolution. This resolution was made to the Zionist Congress as the Jewish organization pertaining to the Jewish establishment of a state and the Arab League as the representatives of any Arab interests in forming a state. The Zionist Congress agreed while the Arab League refused the resolution as they had very different plans, they were going to take the entire area and divide it amongst Syria, Egypt and Jordan. This is where things get confusing. With the rejection by the Arab League there was no longer any claim calling for the placement of an Arab state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and all plans now reverted to the state under International Law. As we know from the above, International Law granted these lands to a Jewish state unless the Jewish interests decided otherwise and despite the Jewish legal body being willing to allow the General Assembly Resolution, that dissolved as soon as the Arab League refused and Israel, as the Jewish state, now became the sole rightful nation as of May 15, 1948 over all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. So, why is there any contesting of this now?

 

When May 15, 1948, rolled around there were over a half dozen Arab national armies consisting of but not limited to Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the forces under the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini (who had spent almost all of World War II in Berlin or other areas of the Nazi controlled Europe and made frequent broadcasts calling for the Arabs to rise up and vanquish the British forces in Egypt and British Mandate lands) some forces from Pakistan and Sudan as well as numerous militias and other forces all crammed into the lands surrounding the nascent state of Israel. After a number of cease fires and reigniting of hostilities, the fighting came to a final halt on the different fronts as Israel finally reaching a ceasefire armistice with Egypt on February 24, 1949, Lebanon on March 23, 1949, Jordan on April 3, 1949, and Syria on July 20. 1949. The United Nations finalized the borders by combining the separate Armistice Agreements and melded all these items together and established the “Green Line” which still is used by many as if it has some meaning other than this is where the front lines were when the fighting ended in 1949. Upon the insistence of the numerous Arab powers and the Arab League the “Green Line” was to be denoted as an armistice line and was to never at any time to be construed as a border defining Israel or any other surrounding or bordering state as doing so would have been tantamount to recognizing Israel as an actual and recognizable state, a fact the Arab forces and governments were loath to allow by any means, thus technically the only boundaries which have ever define Israel as having a border are those of the San Remo Conference which defined the borders for the Jewish state as Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea, or if preferred, by the Churchill White Paper which defined the boundaries for Israel into perpetuity as the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea with Lebanon and Syria to the north and Saudi Arabia and Egypt to the south. Following the end of the War to vanquish the nascent state of Israel and slaughter its Jews before they can even breathe the air for a single day, a war that raged for approximately two years if the skirmishes which began even before the November 29, 1947 vote of the United Nations General Assembly for the formation of the state of Israel was even taken, there is even more to the story to be told.

 

Egypt retained Gaza but never annexed it and recognized it as occupied land partially as they were uninterested in ruling over the area as they found it to pose more problems and caused them more difficulties than they felt it was worth as it had little to offer as far as economics was concerned. Jordan, on the other hand, held the areas of Judea and Samaria and was very interested in the good rich lands and the potentials it had so they not only annexed them but renamed it the “West Bank” so as to remove the reminder that these were ancient Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria, two names dating and referencing back to Torah as well as the Old Testament and also the New Testament. Jordan also realized what importance there was to the Jewish people that they did not possess the Old City and Temple Mount locations of the city of Jerusalem and that by denying the Jews even the right of access or visitation that they were causing the Jewish people grief and pain. For over seventeen years that Egypt held Gaza and Jordan held the “West Bank” there was absolutely no mention of using these lands, either separately or together, to form a Palestinian state or an Arab state by any name. Further, of the entire world only two nations recognized the annexation of the “West Bank” which were Great Britain and Pakistan; not even a single Arab state recognized the annexation, and only Pakistan amongst the over fifty Muslim majority nations ever recognized it. The fact was that both Gaza and Judea and Samaria were seen for what they were, occupied lands; and from whom were they occupied, Israel of course as per the San Remo Conference and the Churchill White Papers. This becomes important later, but first there is another interesting subject into which we should delve.

 

The interesting date we will want to cover is the day the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) with Yasser Arafat as its leader and beside him as his number two man was Mahmoud Abbas and this all occurred on May 28, 1964. Let us go so far as to quote the Palestine Facts web site at“http://www.palestinefacts.org/” at their page which tells us all about their original designs where they claim, “Since Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) including East Jerusalem, and Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip at the time the PLO was founded, the PLO was committed to the dissolution of Israel, mainly through the use of armed force.” So, the PLO was originally founded under the premise their mission was to destroy Israel and take over all of Israel for at least the three years before the Six Day War in June of 1967 when after Egypt had set a naval blockade preventing Israeli use of the Straits of Tiran, cutting off the Israeli southern port of Eilat from exiting the Red Sea and accessing Asia and Africa which was defined, after Gamal Abdel Nasser had included closing the Straits of Tiran along with the Suez Canal during the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis as a casus belli for war, and massing troops on the Sinai-Negev border and Syria had massed troops along the Golan Heights bordering Israel and Nasser was broadcasting day and night on television and radio in both Syria and Egypt, two nations temporarily unified as the United Arab Republic (UAR) that the Israelis reacted to the acts of war and initially engaged Egypt and then Syria when Syrian troops swept down off the Golan Heights. Soon thereafter Jordan stated their intent to attack Israel quoting reports from Egypt and Syria claiming their great victories and how their forces were approaching Tel Aviv and would soon meet and finish off the rest of Israel after taking Tel Aviv. Israel warned and pleaded with Jordan not to believe the Egyptian and Syrian propaganda and that they were all lies and actually Israel was winning on both fronts. Jordan took the Israeli pleading as a sign of weakness and proof of Israeli defeat and Jordan declared war. As history reports, at the end of the June 1967 Six Day War Israel controlled the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula and had liberated Gaza from Egypt and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) from Jordan. It was three years and a month after the founding of the PLO (there have been reports that the PLO was originally hatched months before during a KGB meeting somewhere in Moscow where the KGB drafted a known operative whom they could control, Yasser Arafat, to head the operation and the KGB also approved of Mahmoud Abbas and several other Arab operatives they trusted to assist in the planning and other duties and the KGB funded much of the PLO operations and gave them provisions) that Israel gained possession of Judea and Samaria which they technically liberated as they initially belonged to Israel before she lost them in the 1948-1949 War of Independence which was really a war initiated by the Arab League with the intention of totally destroying the new Jewish entity, later to be referred to as the Zionist entity by the enemies of Israel. After the Six Day War the PLO did not change their Charter and their mission remained the total destruction of Israel.

 

Move forward many hundreds of terror attacks later and after the end of the First Intifada to Monday September 13, 1993, to the White House lawn and there with President William Jefferson Clinton and his ever-present wide smile we find PLO chief terrorist Yasser Arafat and Israeli President Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin meeting, shaking hands and both signing the Oslo Accords which recognized the PLO being transformed into the Palestinian Authority and the PLO was to amend their charter to remove the stipulation for the destruction of Israel and replacing it with verbiage recognizing the right of Israel to exist as the state for the Jewish People. Well, guess that little amending part and rewriting the charter such that destruction of became recognition of Israel and further, Israel as the home for the Jewish People never came to fruition which means that the Oslo Accords never were officially enacted. There was one meeting a few years later attended by an American team where the Palestinian legislature assigned a team to investigate the means by which the charter might be amended to meet the requirements of the Oslo Accords thus making them active which satisfied the Americans that the charter would finally be amended. Wrong again as the PLO charter, which acts as the charter for the Palestinian Authority, never did get amended and that committee never met either. But what if Oslo Accords were actually initiated as everybody believes such that it may as well have been honestly enacted as does it matter now as it took on a life of its own. That, too depends on how much of a stickler for the facts one chooses to be, and when it comes to International Law and international treaties come into play.

 

But let’s humor the concept that the Oslo Accords were validated; what did they actually set up? The Oslo Accords separated Judea and Samaria into thee sectors, Area A, Area B and Area C. The entirety of Oslo recognized that Israel had actually met every demand and stipulation of the United Nations resolutions after the Six Day War and even went further after the end of the Yom Kippur War of 1973 where Israel after the fighting ended had to pull back from their front line which was well on its way to taking Damascus holding position half the way there from the Golan Heights but Israel withdrew back to the Golan Heights, the front lines at the end of the 1967 Six Day War that Israel held and against Egypt Israel had crossed the Suez Canal and was approaching the Nile River at the furthest points of their front lines but after the fighting ceased Israel heeded the demands from the United States, Russia and many European nations and others retreating back across the Suez Canal and forfeiting any control over the Suez Canal despite holding the entirety of the western bank of the canal. When Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt Israel had returned lands retaining those lands deemed necessary for Israeli defense to be secure. Many nations in the 1970s believed and supported the idea that for Israel to be secure within her borders that this meant Israel retaining all of Judea and Samaria, but things change. The three areas the lands were divided into were denoted as per how it was viewed they would end up being divided after negotiations were completed, which was to take all of three years. Area A was placed under complete security and governmental control of the Palestinian Authority. This placed Yasser Arafat as the ruling person over Area A where there would presumably be elections regularly to choose the leadership over the areas under Palestinian governance. Area B was under Palestinian governance and joint security with both Palestinian and Israeli security being shared and with mutual assistance. Area C which included all of East Jerusalem was under Israel governance and security control with no control of any sort granted the Palestinian Arabs, this area was presumed to become an integral part of Israel, period. What this means is that Israel is free to settle anywhere they please in Area C of Judea and Samaria which includes East Jerusalem. It is only the fact that near the beginning of his first term as President of the United States that President Obama spoke clearly and intentionally, it is our opinion that there was no mistake made or that President Obama was not fully versed and cognizant of the ramification of what he said, he was clear and precise with his choice of words and meant every syllable as he stated, “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” This changed the entire outlook overnight and it took Mahmoud Abbas no time before he called for meetings with his top officials, signaled his willingness to start negotiation immediately with President Obama’s expectation of borders being the 1967 lines finally setting a standard which Abbas could support and Abbas soon afterwards made a trip throughout Europe meeting with heads of state and other ranking politicians talking about the need to press Israel to accept the reality that they were obligated to return all of the lands they had been occupying, that despite the reality that any lands granted to the Palestinians would become occupied Israeli lands that the Palestinians were squatting upon.

 

That leads us to the most recent of events, the proof beyond question that the European Union in concert with a number of European nations have been financing Arab purchases of lands in many parts of Area C as well as within East Jerusalem. These purchases are illegal under the precise definitions of rights under the Oslo Accords. The European and their Arab accomplices are the ones who are breaking International Law and the Oslo Accords by these scurrilous and clandestine purchases of lands to give to Arabs to manufacture new realities on the ground by acting to finance colonialization of Area C. European Union and European governments engaging in these purchases can and should be charged with crimes against the sovereign state of Israel just as the European Union and European governments who have threatened to sue Israel for illegal land use and colonization of lands not belonging to them by treaty despite their inability to name what treaty of agreement the Israelis were in contravention of by building or taking up residence after purchasing lands, properties or homes and apartments in East Jerusalem and Area C according to Israel’s rights spelled out in Oslo Accords. If the Europeans would desire that the Oslo Accords be discarded as they are no longer viable, then I guess we need to ask the Europeans which agreement they desire to revert to, the San Remo Conference or the Churchill White Paper as Oslo appears to have been abrogated despite the fact that the Palestinian Authority and the PLO both still have refused to amend their charter thus the Europeans are correct in claiming that Oslo has died. It matters little where the world stands on these matters as by any means their buying lands for Arabs in Area C and East Jerusalem is as illegal as acts can be and it is our bet that they are aware of their pretense, duplicity, deceit, faithlessness, chicanery and outright quackery. But what can one expect from a continent which just over seventy years ago was fully complicit in the nefariousness of the Final Solution by which the physically handicapped, mentally challenged, the insane, the Roma, the Serbians, the Jews and all others who did not meet, cooperate, support or obey the Nazis rules and demands or those who had a crisis of conscience were annihilated with factory like precision and the speed and efficiency of a production line. A continent that just over seventy years ago slaughtered without conscience over twelve millions of their own and the nations they conquered innocent civilians of which one in two was a Jew who did no more than worship G0d differently than was expected under the iron fisted Nazi rule. The same continent which has witnessed many hundreds of a percent of anti-Semitism within its society from one end to the other over the past two to three years and can fully expect this trending to continue into the future where one way or the other there will finally be no Jews left in Europe and Hitler and his close advisors and friends’ dream which was thought out and dressed up with a nice bow wrapped around the parchment which carried its fateful and depraved decree down from atop the Wannsee Conference. Perhaps they have not heard that the Jews promised “Never Again” and we meant that. That is the reason that Israel is so vital and the Europeans are fully aware of this fact and that is what is truly behind their condemnations of Israel and their insistence on its defeat even if it must be by stages just as Yasser Arafat put into motion as he too realized that the Jews will fight this time.
