So You Really Hate Israel… Why?


There are two nations on this planet which have entire NGOs and groups who make their millions by hating them and running around screaming about everything they can find or think they know is evil about them. One is Israel and the other is the United States. Well, guess what. Both nations air their mistakes right out front for the world to feast upon if they so desire. They also both quietly go about helping save the world and not asking for anything much in return. Those who have benefited from this help often turn right around and speak evil about both of us and that is just fine because we know who we are. You want to hate Israel? We are not going to stop you, argue with you or apologize for our few problems. But maybe you should look at Israel, and if you hate the United States you better take a long hard look at them too. While you are seeking an honest answer, perhaps you should check yourself and those who have been feeding you this hatred because you will probably realize some problems with your information train. But if you want to hate Israel, go ahead because we can take it, we Jews have been the object of a general hatred for a few hundred years now, close to over thirty-hundred.


In case you are having difficulty with the math, allow us to help. Thirty-hundred is three-thousand, yes, three thousand years with most of that time our living right here in Eretz Yisroel. That is why Jews have another name less used these days but it is all over this bestselling book, the bible. We are also the Children of Israel. Why children? Well, that is an easy one. We are His children, Hashem, the Big Guy upstairs. Perhaps you’ve heard of Him. We are His children and will forever be His children and just like all children we make mistakes. We do try to learn from our mistakes but sometimes that is a difficult path. We really messed up badly a few times and paid a heavy price. Our first foray into being less than all we could be got us exiled to Babylonia, but rather quickly our Father forgave us and we returned here to Israel and built the Second Temple. For your information, that was around the time when Buddha, Confucius and a few other well-known fathers to some of the other great Earthly philosophies and religions were just starting out. That was nothing compared to our later mistake where too many of us turned to evil such as idolatry and hating one another. For that we paid an even dearer price. The Second Temple was destroyed and the majority of us spread all over the globe for almost two-thousand years. Our Father, oh, and your Father too, but you hopefully know that or have briefly forgotten about that, He finally allowed His displeasure to subside and we have been given another return home and we are hoping that enough of us can keep things real and on the straight and narrow. Two thousand years of basically being thrown out of your house and told to go stand in the corner is a tough lesson and we had better have learned our lesson.


What lesson? Well, to love one another and especially each and every member of our family and to help where and when and how we are able and to give of ourselves for the betterment of humankind and not to turn away from our Father and to pay Him His due. That may sound easy but it is not as people have been getting that one wrong seemingly forever but yet our Father still loves His children, not just us, but all of His children and that includes you. We hope we have learned a few things about truth and the ways of the universe and it is a lot more difficult to grasp or understand than many think. Yes, sure there are tons of nice formulae which describe everything and as the scientists discover more the more they realize they do not know and more recently they have figured out the BIG truth, they will never know all there is because there will be more and it will be beyond their ability to even see the whole picture, let alone figure it out. The real truth is we need to care for what we have and everything else will come in its time.


Israel and the United States share a few things. We are usually the first two nations to arrive when there is a natural disaster to assist and we often are the last to leave. We both send our physicians out into the world to teach procedures and other things which a few hundred years ago were considered witchcraft but today we know are simple facts used for the betterment of mankind. Israel and the United States are often the target of unfounded hatreds even from those we have assisted the most. We have treated freely many Palestinians and especially those their own hospitals do not have the equipment or know-how to treat. This has included relatives, close relatives including mothers, siblings, children and even those leaders themselves of both Hamas and the PLO. Why do we help our mortal enemies? They are not our enemies, they just are people who have erred into blind hatred; yet still parts of their reason allows them the ability to turn to that most hated people, the Jews of Israel, and seek us out when their own family is in the most dire place need of help. They turn to Israel knowing that despite their desire to murder all of us, we will help them when they are in need because they are also our fellow human beings, our brothers and sisters who are lost. Further, our Father tells us to assist those seeking our help, so we do so. It is that simple.


For your information, it is because we refuse to even hate our mortal enemies that they hate us even more. They see their failings and blame us and we do not fight back as that would be something our Father would not abide. We have an obligation to be as wonderful and helping in all cases to all our fellow human beings and not judge their rights and wrongs as that is not our place. We are His children and we must strive to be worthy of that name. We fail and fail far too often to worry about those false accusations as we need to live up to our expectations of ourselves and then go beyond that to His expectations of us. We will never be the perfect people Hashem desires of us but we will pick ourselves up off the floor every time we fail and try harder. That is what drives us and keeps us working at making ourselves and all we touch better. We are supposed to help and fix that which needs repair and leaving alone that which either is already good or that which refuses to be helped. When they then stop the hate long enough to beseech our aid, we give it freely because that is why we are here and why you are here.


That dictate, telling all of us about loving thy neighbor as thyself thing, we were first commanded to try and live up to that and we have stumbled. We still work on that principle and we will likely stumble some more, but we will continue to try. Treating the stranger amongst us kindly is also one of the commandments we try to live by. But let me tell you a few things we bet you have never heard about. First thing is the Arabs who are citizens of Israel are fully equal with the Jews. They vote, work as they please, live where they please and have every right to fair treatment as anyone else in Israel and some would claim that we are harder on our fellow Jews than any of the myriad of minorities residing in Israel, citizens or not. The Palestinians you demand so much for, rule themselves within our borders in semiautonomous zones. The reason they are semiautonomous is because we do not demand they raise armies and we would defend them from foreign attacks. They continue to reside here because the majority of the Palestinians would love for there to be peace but outside forces rule them and demand they never make peace. Look up the Khartoum Resolution and the resultant Three No’s and read why there is such a movement of hate against Israel. This conference, as you would read, came about after the Six Day War of 1967. The three no’s, just to save you reading all that Wikipedia propaganda, are “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The Khartoum Conference was technically an emergency meeting of the Arab League called in order to end Israeli aggressions. Israeli aggression is defined by our Arab brothers and sisters officially as Israeli existence. The only solution acceptable is the complete and total destruction of Israel, and if truth be told, followed by the hunting down and murder of every Jews, practicing or not, everywhere. By the way, the leaders of this movement are also the people paying for your NGO through many long, convoluted and twisting channels as they desire to be hidden from view. They know that should their backing become common knowledge then they would not have as much backing as they have collected. Personally, I believe they might receive more backing if they went public, but it matters not.

Israel will continue and will seek peace even when doing so appears suicidal. We are commanded to offer those residing in our lands a choice of three options about their residing here. This was also what we offered the Canaanites when we entered here from Egypt, and we know there are historians who claim we never were in Egypt and that is their right to believe as they choose. They were told they could remain and live in peace as long as they observed the Noahic Code, or they could depart over our borders and we would not pursue or harm them without due cause, or they could choose to war with us at which time we would defeat them and destroy every last vestige that they existed, their people, cities, cattle, crops, idols (definitely their idols) and lastly anything else we could find. Many of the Canaanites chose the war option but there were a minority which chose leave or live with us and observe the seven Noahic Laws (see below). The Noahic Code is given in the bible and has also become known as the Divine Code which also has a nice ring to it. Yes, the Noahic Code is also part of the Ten Commandments but is not all ten, it is seven on which a right and decent society must be built or it will fail. The Palestinians claimed they would abide by the Noahic Code but some insist on trying to kill us. As long as one tries to kill us, we will answer them in kind. If they wish peace then we will give peace for peace. It really is that simple, peace for peace, threat for threat, death for death, war for war, eye for an eye and life for a life, it sounds almost Biblical, doesn’t it.

Let us conclude our little conversation and ask a simple favor, if we may. Visit Israel and realize that despite the attractive life in Tel Aviv, that is not our best and finest, just the wealthiest. But then the major cities in the United States is not representative of the heart of America, it is just where the wealth resides. The measure of a person and a nation are similar, gold does not make them necessarily right, it just makes them wealthy and able to be heard louder. Loud does not equal right just quiet also does not impart automatic justness as often whispers are the most devious of all lies as they carry the shroud of being long kept secrets. Often the whispers and the person screaming in the town square are repeating the same oft told lies which many are centuries old. Hatred of the Jews is amongst those ancient hatreds and we were warned that in every generation one would rise to destroy us and unfortunately it has often not been just a single one but often a multitude with numerous leaders and prophets. The Nazis did not act completely alone as some nations have admitted and others still remain unrepentant. Neither did the Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Philistines, Nazis, Stalinists, Czars, British, French, Spanish (Inquisition), Ottomans, Assyrians, Persians (Haman the Amalekites, descendant of King Agag), Amorites and now the Islamists. Many of these listed were our friends and turned against us or were our enemies and made eventual peace with us.


But do something easy and spend a couple of weeks visiting Israel and travel to the far corners and walk the fields, enjoy the fruits of the land and get to know the people, Jews, Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Baha’I, Buddhists, Hindus and the other myriads of people as well. If you prefer take that vacation in Haiti and ask of the Israelis there, or the Philippines, Japan where the quake and tsunami hit worst, or even New Orleans from the hurricane or the parts of Louisiana recently flooded and you will hear that the Israelis came and assisted. As a matter of fact, Israel is one of only a few nations which offers assistance to the United States and does not simply believe they can handle it alone; they do not need or want our help. We know that would be a lie and is simply a reason for not assisting and we take assisting our fellow man in need and try to help whenever we are permitted, even if that means deception about the aid given coming from Israel as the Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) foundation does regularly when a child from an Arab and/or Muslim nation which refuses to recognize Israel and would torture or murder the family if it were known they received our help. These special cases are handled discreetly and they are flown to a neutral nation and brought to Israel on El Al or private airlines and their travel documents never show any reference to Israel as we are helping and not in the business of burdening people who have suffered the pains of a deathly ill child and the only true assistance being theoretically out of reach due to unseemly hatreds.


Before you continue with the next Apartheid Israel demonstration or give the Palestinians their own country or whatever the next “thing” protesting Israel, seek a little truth, check out those claims you have been fed, realize there is a silent, quiet, underlying lie in the slanders and a kernel of truth out there if only you seek it. We cannot simply yell from the bell tower as we have limited funds which can be better used helping people, other people who really need the help, than using the money to fight the lies. The lies are backed by some of the richest oil wealth nations whose people often reside in poverty and whose education system indoctrinates, not teach. We could never scream louder than the paid adversaries receiving their ill given hate funding from people who would line every Jew on the planet up and slaughter them ISIS (Islamic State, Daesh or ISIL as President Obama prefers to call them) style and would probably do as did the Nazis and record it for posterity. We would rather save lives whenever possible and that is the reality. Israel has saved more Arabs, children and adults, than we have killed in our defense of our nation and wish that we could only save lives and never be in the position of having to take them. But that probably remains for you to find out for yourself, and we invite you to do so. For the rest who already know and appreciate these facts, we would like to give you our heartfelt thanks for your support at any level or effort. Even your smile towards us is sufficient recognition, thank you.

Palestinian Elections Cancelled Again and Why


There was little if any surprise when the local elections in the Arab Palestinian Authority Areas and Gaza were cancelled. We understood that the probable results would very likely place Hamas representatives elected over anyone thought to be acting under orders from the Palestinian Authority (PA). The elections were shaping up to be a vote of no confidence over the lack of any real and meaningful progress towards peace with Israel. The reality would be something far different as wherever the PA currently ruled the elections would favor Hamas and in Hamas controlled areas there would be internecine killing as well. The groups of Arab populations who live under either the PA or Hamas would be seeking new leadership and this would necessarily start at the local areas. The problem is that neither the PA nor Hamas can allow their citizenry to elect people from the other side. As each is not exactly popular whence they rule, neither would consider elections to be to their advantage. Further, both sides have good reason to suspect the elections on the other side would be tainted and that the reality would come down to who counted the votes, not who cast them. That is the real reason the elections were cancelled, neither side was willing to subject the local political base under each respective population to be allowed openly to vote for the representatives in their own neighborhoods. Had the elections gone forward there would have necessarily been bloodshed as part of the campaign on both sides in an attempt to strengthen their grip on their respective areas. Hamas representatives and candidates would be arrested in Judea and Samaria to ensure they would have no direct effect upon the elections and Hamas would remedy their problem in a similar manner just with less media attention.


Israel also has reason to be relieved as the elections were poised to give Hamas large areas of control in Judea and Samaria. Hamas would have retained their control over local governance in Gaza by any means necessary which would have resulted in murders of any remaining PA sympathizers. Similar actions would take place where the PA rules except Hamas sympathizers would have simply been jailed and not permitted to vote and the most adamant of the Hamas representatives would have met with a fatal accident. Further, should these local elections have occurred, then both sides would have taken drastic and direct actions to retain their control. The rulers in Gaza, Hamas, and Judea and Samaria, the PA, have both become quite unpopular to a large segment if not a majority of their constituents for similar reasons. Where there being no hope of any final peace with Israel, a governance of Kleptocrats stealing them blind and no peace talks by the PA being scheduled and no reconstruction instead of tunnel building in Gaza has made both segments of their populations ready to demand change. The change might also take the form of local leaders more willing to work with the Israelis than with their respective governments and possibly even demanding relief from either Hamas or PA rule. There is far too much money being siphoned off by both sides to permit any threat to their road to untold wealth. The most obvious recipients of said siphoned funds are Mahmoud Abbas, Khaled Mashal and Ismail Haniyeh respectively; multimillionaire or potentially billionaires all (see picture below).

The concept that there is no money to be made in terrorism has been proven time and again to be a fallacy. For the terrorists presumably fighting against Israel, fighting against the Jews and their Jewish State, the world is willing to spend an unlimited amount of money to undo what they believe was their biggest mistake ever, the founding of Israel. Israel was founded under the premise that the Arab forces would remove it immediately after it was founded and they got the united Arab States surrounding Israel (Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen and various militia forces, plus the Mufti of Jerusalem’s forces, the precursors to Hamas and PA) to all attack Israel as stated yesterday with the map below. These combined forces had some initial success but were soon being repulsed requiring the world to demand ceasefire after ceasefire allowing the Arab Armies which were in disarray to regroup. Each time the results were the same, initial Arab gains due to surprise as they were breaking the truce and Israeli forces were presumably in stand-down rather than combat modes.

The Israelis still managed to turn things around rapidly and had the fighting been permitted to last longer it became obvious that the Jews would regain all the areas they had not had control after the initial burst on the morning of May 15, 1948 immediately after the British pulled out and presumably before the Israelis had gotten organized into some form of command structure tying all the disparate defensive groups together. The final result left Syria in command of the high ground of the Golan Heights, Egypt holding Gaza and Jordan occupying Judea and Samaria which they annexed illegally and renamed it something less Jewish, namely the West Bank. All of these territories were liberated by Israel in the Six Day War forced by massed troops on both northern and southern borders and the eventual joining the futile effort of Egypt and Syria despite Israeli pleas for them to remain out of the hostilities, thus allowing Israel to liberate the large areas of Judea and Samaria. The world is still pressing to force Israel back to the perilous 1949 Armistice Lines which with modern weaponry is completely indefensible while the movement for Israel to simply annex all of Judea and Samaria would leave Israel defendable with the Jordan River, Dead Sea and Golan Heights as her eastern borders (see maps below).

With an Israel midsection cut back to the mere nine miles would allow for any new Arab invasion force to immediately cut Jerusalem from Tel Aviv making any forces or Israelis left in Jerusalem facing a similarly deadly situation as they were in 1948 when the identical strike was made and only through a herculean effort were Israeli forces able to reconnect to Jerusalem in the final days, actually hours, before the Armistice Lines were set as the front lines of contiguous forces, the reason a breakthrough to Jerusalem to relieve those still holed up there and make some claim to this holiest of Jewish cities. After cutting off Jerusalem the heart of Israel could be bombarded by direct and indirect fire from atop the Judean Hills western ledge which rises fifteen-hundred to over twenty-five-hundred feet overlooking the coastal plains below. Tel Aviv and even its central district with the tallest buildings in Israel are all clearly seen from the heights. Further, even today the old adage of he with the high ground had the advantage holds some validity. The damage which could be unloaded simply using mortars, light artillery and tank fire for fifteen to thirty minutes would prove devastating even should Israel then repulse the assaulting forces. One would not need to rely on rockets or even use aircraft to devastate Israel from the Judean Hills (they are actually mountains as seen in images below).

By now the reasoning on why Israel must annex all of the West Bank including all of Jerusalem is far more clear and when one adds in the defensibility of the Jordan River and accompanying Valley, which must be climbed by any invading force including armor, the reasons become even more evident (see map from Jordan Valley to the Mediterranean Sea below). Giving away the high ground and the defensive virtual wall, which is the Jordan River Valley from which there are at most five passes allowing traveling to the heart of Israel, and it becomes even more vitally obvious.

Finally, back to the cancelled local election for all of the Palestinian Arabs under both the PA in Judea and Samaria and Hamas in Gaza and why this is simply the final nail in any potential for peace with Israel. First and foremost it must be stressed and stressed until it is fully understood everywhere, Israel had nothing to do with the cancelling of the elections. Mahmoud Abbas and the Fatah political arm of the PLO who also is President of the PA, simply put Abbas rules every possible entity controlling the PA areas, he cancelled the elections claiming difficulty in oversight in Gaza and other miscellaneous reasons. Hamas immediately followed up claiming they were postponing the Gaza elections as well. Abbas had already claimed he was cancelling the elections for all of the Palestinian Arab areas. Still, Hamas had to interject their control over Gaza as they cannot permit the PA or Fatah or any other organization where Abbas rules to make any decisions for Gaza. So Hamas rules Gaza except where Islamic Jihad and even Islamic State decide they are going to go rogue and fire rockets and mortars at Israel. This places Hamas in a tight squeeze as anything they do to end the shooting at Israel makes them appear to be doing the IDF’s job of policing any attacks on Israel. The groups who would challenge Hamas for control in Gaza already have labeled Hamas as Israeli border guards.


Meanwhile the PA rules with Hamas elected to the parliament but their representatives are not permitted to attend meetings from Gaza. There are also Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Islamic State amongst others who are all prepared to shoot it out in Judea and Samaria to unseat Fatah and take over the PA. Then there are the least fortunate from amongst the Arab Palestinians from Judea, Samaria or Gaza who simply desire peace and to get on with a normal life. They would love to increase their cash flow and be as wealthy as are the Israelis. They also know they must never utter even the slightest expression of dissatisfaction with whichever group rules their little corner in “Hell,” be it Judea, Samaria or Gaza. So we have the terrorists who if they are of rank are well paid and living high. If they are the family of a Shahada, a Martyr, then they will receive a salary commensurate with the numbers of Israelis their family member murdered and injured and how serious were the injuries. If one committed a terror act and survived and were arrested, they too receive payments while in prison and their family once they are out. This payment too is commensurate with the numbers of Israelis they murdered and injured and how serious were the injuries. These payments are often higher, sometimes by multiples as high as six times, than the salaries of the PA workers who have jobs in the governing bodies. They make more than the members of the police force and many of these terrorists who have blood on their hands for murdering Israelis are also police officers and usually higher ranking members of their enforcement services. Then there is Force 17 started way back by Yasser Arafat. These fighters, almost all terrorists, often convicted but released in one of those thousands for a single Israeli, and receive healthy salaries. If you are starting to believe that the most profitable business a family can easily build would be to sacrifice a few of the more troublesome children in terror suicide bombings or other terror attack pretty much guaranteed to end with their death, and then the family is rewarded and no longer need worry about working. Where does all this money come from to pay these terrorists’ families? Where else, the United Nations through United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) which gets their funds mostly from the United States, European Union and various European governments. The United States, European Union and various European governments also give hundreds of millions to the PA, who passes knowingly half the monies to Hamas as protection as well for them to carry out attacks, of which a fair share is given to the terrorists and their families. But these funds are paid only as long as no money is diverted to terrorist activities, is that the claim? Well, it appears that everybody involved has agreed to accept Mahmoud Abbas assurances given while meeting once each year at the General Assembly of the United Nations opening ceremonies where Abbas gives a speech to a standing ovation and the Prime Minister of Israel also gives a speech at which point well over two-thirds of the representatives walk out. What was the question about funds not being used for terror again? Trust that nobody cares in all honesty and it is all a farcical circus where nobody in Israel is amused outside of some diehard leftists.


So, who does one talk to in order to establish a viable and terror-free Palestinian State? Even dropping the terror-free part, who is the one representing the majority of Palestinians? Even more poignant, who does one talk to who represents the Palestinians who want to build a working democratic state free of Kleptocrats who steal everything that is not nailed down? The answer to all the above questions is the same, nobody on the face of the earth outside of the supporters for Israel and the few Arabs stuck under the oppressive rule of either Hamas or the PA really care. The idea of a Palestinian State is simply a visor hiding the multitude of Arabs who back the destruction of Israel and a second Holocaust despite many not believing there ever was a first Holocaust. Here is where it starts to get confusing. Also desiring the end of Israel are the multitude of European Union and European government political leaders, rank and file and many moneyed interests which include George Soros for one and many others all who share the concept that the biggest mistake Europe ever made was the formation of Israel.


They reject Israel because it stands for the Jews who represent Torah and morality and the rule of law over the rule of men. Of course all these people desiring the end of Israel view themselves as part of the men part who rule the world from above all laws. Israel represents man’s covenant with Hashem and thus represent Hashem Whose Law is absolute and stands above all mankind. There are those in the United States who would also love little more than to be rid of Israel. This includes President Obama, Socialist Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and a host of other extreme left-wingers and extreme right-wingers. We are speaking of the Pat Buchanan, Lew Rockwell, and the late Joseph Sobran. As we have pointed out before repeatedly, the Democrat National Convention for the past four and possibly six or longer have voted against placing any reference to Hashem or standing with Israel or that their Capital City be Jerusalem. They are against moving the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, but they have a consulate in Jerusalem to service Palestinians though it is located safely deep within Western Jerusalem, the newer parts of the city and not near the Temple Mount or East Jerusalem.


Yes, there are conspiracies which have as their aim the termination of the State of Israel and many would really appreciate following that up with making the final solution a done deed most foul. There have been such people ever since the Israelites received Torah at Mount Sinai. The first to try and harm the Israelites after they had left Egypt was the Amalekites (if memory serves me) who preyed on the weak, the feeble, the old and those who were unable to keep up the pace and straggled behind. It was this unkind opportunism amongst other deeds so foul that the Israelites are instructed to never forget Amalek and to be prepared for them in every generation. This name became the reference for anyone who plagued the Israelites and eventually the Jews. We are also warned that in every generation there will be one who rises up against us. I may not speak for all Israelis and especially not for all Jews, but I have beseeched Hashem to please make it just one. Still, the promise to the Zionist Congress was the Jordan River was to be our eastern border and still is under international law. We gave away our claim to Gaza, so that is gone for as long as they desire to live in peace.


We should also offer to allow the PA and their people, the Arab Palestinians, to make the choice we are to proffer to the Canaanites. We will allow them some lands and as long as they live there in peace and obey the Seven Noahic Codes we will live at peace with them. They may choose to leave at which point we wish them well and will not follow after them for any reason and especially not to do them harm for they left in peace. Finally, if none of these are acceptable and they instead choose war, they need to understand the full ramifications of that act. Choosing war is an absolute choice and we will war with them until every last man, woman, child, cattle, crops and stores have been utterly destroyed. This is done so that we cannot be accused of making such a war for gains of their properties, thus we destroy everything leaving nothing for us to gain. The land was already ours and they resided amongst us under stipulation that they reside peaceably and obey the Noahic Code. It is understandable that they will refuse that offer but a percentage may come to us and surrender desiring to live amongst us as we require and make themselves separate from those who desire complete war. That will be a difficult decision which will not likely be mine to make, bless Hashem for that favor. Were I to be in that position I would likely take them at their word but warn them that if even one were to break the agreement they would all pay as they had now been warned twice. But as things stand, there is no one person with whom any peace can be established. Abbas has adamantly exclaimed that the only peace he will accept is Israel destroyed and an Islamic State to be built on the ashes of the Jewish people who were slaughtered to the last one. This is the creed by which Abbas rules, this plus speaking at every opportunity declaring that the Palestinians must cleanse the land and the earth itself of the Jews such that all others may live as they please. What is the real shame is Abbas sees nothing wrong with what he demands and believes that by murdering the Jews he will reach a greater salvation. He believes that his religion demands such of him and the Muslim peoples. Those are not beliefs of a person with whom any form of peace can be attained and is the final nail in the coffin of the two state solution as almost everyone has decided to follow Abbas descending to the most base form of humanity short of cannibalism, genocide.

As Long as They All Hate


We have always held that if you are going to be denounced, sanctioned, held as a diabolical daemon in the United Nations General Assembly, receive threats from the European Union and member states and bludgeoned with words of war from the Arab world and generally made a pariah; then you may as well do whatever serves your needs and to hell with everyone else. We have seen the guaranteed death of the two state solution in any number of ways. The Palestinian education, or should we say indoctrination, system has set their belief structure that the only peaceful solution left to them is the complete destruction of Israel and the death of every Jew. Just for clarification, they teach the death of every Jew, not Israeli and not just Israeli Jews but all Jews everywhere which is possible only should they conquer the world. The PLO Charter has fairly similar wordings, goals and aims as does the Hamas Charter which also calls for their conquest of the world. People laugh when they are told these things and claim that nobody is so delusional as to believe they are going to conquer the world, that’s just plain crazy. Well, yes, it is crazy but that does not mean they do not believe they will actually conquer the world. It does not matter if the leaders know that world conquest is a pipe dream, as long as the people are sold on that idea, they will fight until their dying day, which their fighting may advance by years through another senseless death in a war that cannot be won and also will not end until totally and utterly defeated. Keep in mind that the Islamic State also expects to conquer the world, Iran’s leadership sells the people on their conquering the world; the Imams in Saudi Arabia believe they will conquer the world under Wahhabism; the Imams teaching at Al-Azhar University in Cairo (pictured below), Egypt, the leading center for Islamic knowledge in the world, also sells their Imams on the fact that Islam is destined to conquer the world and it will be their version of Sunni Islam which will accomplish this; and the Ottoman Turks also set out to conquer the world and succeeded in conquering the Islamic world, or at least a good part of it. In Islam, world conquest is one of the main tenets after the Five Pillars of Islam which are Shahadah which means belief that there is only one god, Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger; Salah which means prayers are to be given Allah five times a day; Zakat which means giving alms, charity, of 2.5% of income; Hajj which is making the pilgrimage to the house of Allah in Mecca at least once during your life; and Fasting which is the fast from sunrise to sunset during the month of Ramadan. So, why not just add another pillar and admit that Islam demands that Muslims not rest until the entire world has fallen before them and all have either converted or been put to the sword. The Jizya tax for unbelievers to pay as protection under Islam is a temporary fix which in time is presumed to pass and the other two alternatives are to be implemented, convert or die. So, what does one do knowing that their problem with the Arab Palestinians can only be resolved to their satisfaction with your death and the conquest of your country by whatever means are necessary and that no rest can be afforded Israel as the land has been declared a Waqf which means that “every grain of sand is a holy piece of Islam” according to the definition of Waqf being a religious endowment of an area, in this case all of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea according to the Palestinian leadership.

So, the enemy refuses any compromise and is willing, as we have already witnessed, to send all ages of youth starting with ten year old children armed with knives who are sworn to jihad and will attack as long as they have life left in them even if mortally wounded they will still attempt to kill whomever comes close including aid personnel who are attempting to treat their wounds. That is the level of fanaticism faced currently in Israel and coming rapidly to Europe and possibly beyond into the United States, Canada and anywhere else taking in the “Syrian refugees” who have numbers of males between the ages of fourteen and forty and who are unaccompanied by a wife, girlfriend or children. These are not refugees people, this is a fighting force, an advance column which will be learned in quick order, ask the French as they are entering the first phase of the Islamic war for the conquest of France. Israel has been dealing with this war from day one when on May 15, 1948, when Israel was first declared a nation with her borders defined as being from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, sounds familiar doesn’t it, and six nations’ armies invaded from every border with the genocidal intent of slaughtering every Jew and taking their wealth and possibly enslaving many of the women to be used to propagate more Muslim children. They promised wealth, herds of sheep, free land and houses, all the belongings of the Jew and all other spoils of war as defined in the Quran, which includes the enslavement of their defeated opponents women and the taking of children too young to be educated and have a strong attachment to any religion and might make good Muslims after being indoctrinated. That definition of the rewards for jihad against Israel and the Jews has not changed and if you die while performing jihad you go instantly to Islamic heaven where there are lush fields of grass, waterfalls, rivers, wines, and seventy-two permanent virgins who regain their virginity after you take them such that they are always fresh young, virgin, raven haired and beautiful. You cannot make this stuff up, well, apparently you can but your name would need to be Muhammad as such is beyond our imagination. Our imagination is so poor that we can only find one answer to this situation and it will not make even many of the Israeli politicians happy as they are mired in a false promise which was made at Oslo in the accursed Oslo Accords. There was the invention of two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. There was only one problem with that agreement, one side lied. The actions of Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian indoctrinated generations since 1993 and even before have proven that the Arab Palestinians will not accept two states for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security, they want it all and they want it now or whenever as long as it takes to force the Jews from their lands or murder them where they stand and take the lands which Oslo defined as to be shared; they have decided they do not wish to share or play well with others. This is the reality from which Israel has to decide what she wishes to do.


So, what are the choices and how can we rate them for viability? Well, we can continue to offer new and slightly different proposals for establishing the two state solution as we have been doing since 1993 in September. It was a sunny Monday afternoon on the White House Lawns in Washington D.C., the thirteenth of September to be exact, and the negotiations have continued ever since. Since that time the Israelis have been systematically driven back one concession at a time while the Palestinians refused to even ratify their acceptance of the Oslo Accords, everybody has simply assumed their accepting it formally and never checked, or cared to check. Their one necessary concession was to change their Charter so it would no longer call for the destruction of Israel and they were only pressed once where the United States State Department joined a session of the Palestinian Parliament to witness their vote to change the Charter and they took a vote and passed a measure calling for a committee to be appointed to assess a proper and acceptable alteration to comply with the agreement to change the Charter. They never appointed the committee and never changed a word of their Charter which remains calling for the complete destruction of Israel. Since then Israel had gone from the original plan where Israel retained Area C, the Arab Palestinians retained Area A and the sides were to negotiate where to divide Area B to now where there are demands for Israel to return to the borders from before the 1967 Six Day War and surrender the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem which has numerous Jewish holy sites and all of Area C which also holds valuable and precious Jewish holy sites and historic locations and there have been hints that Israel should also surrender a path to Gaza straight across the midlands of Israel cutting the Jewish State into halves and even calls for surrender of much of the Galilee and most of the Negev Desert. The aim is obvious, make Israel completely indefensible and then destroy it in quick order after every inch which could be negotiated had been taken through combination of threats and twisting world opinion, and that world opinion had been very generous to the Arab Palestinians as they are willing to sacrifice all of Israel as long as doing so comes with a promise to end all Islamic violence in the Western world and they are willing to take their word for that. The catch is they need Israel to agree and that point has yet to be reached, but give the world and the masters at giving concessions, also called the Knesset, time and we might get there. The Knesset actually approved the gifting of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority who within a short period lost it to Hamas who has since used it as a launching area of rockets into civilian areas of Israel and for tunneling into Israel with the intent of accomplishing raids resulting in kidnapped IDF or civilian Israelis. That was how the Gilad Shalit abduction and ransom was conducted. The world also seems to be fixated on Israel controlling their border with Hamas and Gaza despite tons of goods, food, medicine and other non-military goods transferred through the operative crossing daily where any government or NGO can have non-military goods transferred to Gaza simply by shipping their goods through the Ashdod, Israel port as Israel has legitimate need to assure that no military use goods are given over to Hamas, a recognized internationally as a terror origination. What is curious is these same nations have no problem with the complete closure of Gaza’s border with Egypt where nothing passes through in either direction legally for months and even years at a time. Israel has treated Gazans in Israeli hospitals including Hamas leader Haniyeh’s daughter treated in Israel. At another time, if you trust Israeli new reports, Hamas leader Haniyeh’s mother-in-law was also treated in an Israeli hospital. And according to Reuters in their last line almost as an excuse our mention of this but, one of Haniyeh’s granddaughters was treated in an Israeli hospital. But Israel is accused of committing genocide in Gaza. They keep using that word and I do not think it means what they think it means.


So, we have an intransigent enemy which will only be satisfied when they are walking on our graves as they would have long ago been destroyed as who needs a Jewish cemetery in the middle of an Arab Muslim Palestinian entity, which also happens to be dysfunctional and a failed entity incapable of supporting itself and completely dependent on foreign funding just to feed its people. And we have Israel, the only Jewish State in a sea of Arab and Muslim states despite the Arab Palestinian argument that there are no Muslim nations, which is true because their claim is there is not one such nation and they are correct, there are twenty-one Arab Muslim States and they desire to be the twenty-second. The world is willing to grant the Arabs Palestinians their demands as long as these demands are couched in polite terms and do not completely eradicate Israel, at least this is quite true in the United Nations General Assembly but thus far has not survived and passed in the Security Council where a veto threat always seems to succeed in preventing such a measure of passing and has even prevented such from being presented as their voting it down would set a bad precedent, or at least that has been the reason given by the Arab Palestinian leadership. Recent developments have shown that the veto protection has become something which some have decided can be used as a bludgeon to force Israeli leadership to toe a line drawn outside of Israel. This threat has been intimated but has yet to actually been publicly deployed though the possibility that it was threatened in private discussions between high officials in both nations has been breached as having been a possibility in many an editorial. Still, the fact that one of the candidates for the highest office did spend close to or possible more than a half hour berating the Prime Minister of Israel because he had the audacity to present the Israeli position regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 (the permanent members of the Security Council which are the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain and France and the plus one was Germany and, of course, Iran) which are claimed to permit Iran to continue parts of their nuclear research and increasingly over a decade be permitted greater range of research and development with their potentially producing nuclear weapon as soon as eight years according to some and definitively after the decade when all restrictions would end (the entire deal can be read here in a translation of the Russian copy into English and reformatted for easier reading). Another little tip of something not well known, Iran had been arming Hamas in Gaza and has also been trying to find inroads to arm and aid thus bringing into their influence the Palestinian Authority and the PLO.


So, what can be done about this untenable situation? How about a one state solution and the Arab Palestinians will be permitted to vote in their own local elections within Areas A and B while both Palestinians and Israelis will be permitted to reside in Area C but Arab Palestinians will not have voting rights as they will be considered resident aliens within Israel. Israel gets what was promised as their minimum border according to the original intents and promises under the Oslo Accords, as that at the very least should be recognized and granted. By the way, nobody other than Israel gets a vote on that decision. Arab Palestinians will have free travel throughout Israel with checkpoints initially and as the violence ends, the checkpoints will correspondingly end. Any Arab Palestinian desiring to take advantage of an opportunity to reside outside of Israeli influences can take a buyout offer which will include a generous price for their assets such as property, business and other recognized assets plus a flight to a neutral nation and then the flight to their chosen destination, they will need proof their destination will accept them, and an additional sum as determined as a resettlement assistance. Such an offer will be available for a set period, perhaps one year, and afterwards the remaining Arab Palestinians will be considered to be resident aliens with semiautonomous rights in Areas A and B. Any act of terrorism such as attacking people with no cause other than jihad or other terrorist acts will result in deportation either immediately or after serving any prison sentence handed down by the courts. Eventually, it may become possible to allow Arab Palestinians to apply for Israeli citizenship, but that will take time and the terrorist violence will need to have ceased before such can even be considered. The Arab Palestinians will retain the right to own property and to practice their religion freely. Initially the Madrassas will be monitored to assure they are not teaching jihad or Muslim supremacy doctrines and those crossing these lines will be warned once and if their transgressing the set limits continues they will be closed. The UNRWA schools and other public education will come under Israeli control and will retain any Arab Palestinian teachers and staff but will now teach an approved version of the Israeli basic education, especially when it comes to history, the sciences and Hebrew will be a required course so that when the time arrives that incorporating them if they choose into Israeli society as full citizens they will speak Hebrew which is an aim of the education system in Israel as well as the absorption programs for Jews making Aliyah. The Arab Palestinian leadership, especially the upper levels of Fatah and the PLO will necessarily be deported as there is no path which appears possible to incorporate them peaceably into this solution. They will not be granted any remuneration as they have stolen sufficient monies over the years to cover any relocation they choose even if it be a mansion along the Riviera. This may not be a perfect plan but what exists now is far worse for both the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis. Israel cannot be expected to continue this charade where their citizens are but targets which the Arab Palestinian school system teaches do not deserve to live and are a mortal enemy and are going to murder the Arab Palestinians unless they kill all the Israelis first. That has to end as it has ruined the lives of two generations of Arab Palestinians by filling them with hatred and nothing else to base their future upon. They are taught that as long as Israel exists their lives will be worthless and the Jews have stolen all opportunities and the only path to retrieve opportunity is to destroy Israel. That is not an acceptable situation and there is but one way to resolve that, end the Arab occupation and indoctrination on what is legally under all international laws Israeli soil. Publish the Levy Report and act on it as this situation is untenable for all involved and is destroying the Arab Palestinians’ futures by selling them destruction as their only option.
