The media relays the results of polls taken every day and often more than once a day if there are two polls available. If no new poll is released they discuss the trending of the polls over the last few days or the polls this week compared to last week or anything in order to stress the same point endlessly, the race is between Labor and Likud and everyone else are insignificant. They claim that the choice is between returning current Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and taking the chance with Yitzhak Herzog-Tzipi Livni splitting the position between them. Netanyahu has the disadvantage in that the majorities of the Israeli media caters to the Tel Aviv liberals and mostly are antagonistic against the Prime Minister and would really love for their hopes to be realized and have Herzog and Livni sharing the time as Prime Minister. There was a report last week which actually went so far as to test if all of the Arab parties were to run a joint campaign along with Meretz and the Communist Parties they would have sufficient numbers to challenge for the spot of having to share the office of Prime Minister on some kind of rotating schedule that only a fiction novelist or a theoretical mathematician could make up a formula. This fantasy was probably run so they would not have to note that the one poll available showed not only Netanyahu wining but with Labor not taking second place, though I have yet to see such a poll.

 

The fact that no poll has shown much difference at the top with Labor and Likud both hovering between twenty-two and twenty-five mandates and taking turns leading over the other makes the entirety of the polling both irrelevant and questionable as to what exactly is their sampling distribution. There are likely a number of sampling biases which make these polls potentially far off from what the actual distribution of the actual electorate, but that will not bother these reporters of fact and fancy. The problem is that by their daily repeating the same basic numbers and whittling the race down to between two parties the newsmakers and pollsters are reinforcing the idea that nobody outside the two parties which have traded the office of Prime Minister between themselves with barely an iota of difference to show for it they are robbing the Israeli public of seeking someone outside of these two overly tried and not so true choices. Additionally, one must wonder from where they get their samples for these polls. From the numbers I have seen it appears they are sampling heavily in Tel Aviv and its surrounding suburbs and other cities, western Jerusalem, Haifa, a few areas in the Galilee, of which much would include some of the Arab cities, Eilat and Beersheba and that is about it. There is probably little if any polling taken from East Jerusalem and the Israeli populations living beyond the Green Line or the population bordering Gaza in the south. This leaves out a fairly large segment of the population which is less likely than the rest of Israel to vote outside of the traditional leading parties. By ignoring such in their polling, as we suspect, they leave these people with a false impression that if they do not vote to support either Labor or Likud then they are only voting for minor members on what may be the coalition and not deciding on who will win and lead the coalition. Why might this be important?

 

That is the easy part of this exercise. The one thing which has been proven is that there are a large segment within Israel who is tired of the same political gamesmanship and the trading the lead position between two parties which offer no real difference. Both Labor and Likud have agreed to surrender lands to form an Arab state out of lands which by international law and every treaty since 1920 has denoted as reserved for the Jewish state, end of statement. The only agreement which suggested otherwise was a nonbinding resolution from the United Nations General Assembly which was immediately rejected by the Arab League making it null a void. The entirety of the Arab claims to an Arab state beside Israel on Israeli land derives from that rejected resolution which was negated by the very Arabs who wish to now use it for their advantage as they found that Israel was a little more difficult to erase from the map than they had figured. They rejected that resolution in order to erase Israel from the map at the birth of the nation and invaded with troops representing more than a half dozen nations and with an advantage of hundreds against each Israeli soldier and Israel survived. They tried again in 1967 and failed again losing even more land which Israel returned the majority when making peace with Egypt thus meeting the requirement to return lands and retaining those lands Israel felt she was necessary for her to have defendable borders. When after the Israeli war to retain her founding in 1948-9 Egypt gained control of Gaza and Jordan gained control of Judea and Samaria which Jordan renamed the West Bank when they annexed those lands. Other than Britain and Pakistan every nation and the United Nations referred to the Jordanian control of these lands as an occupation rejecting the annexation. Here is the sixty-four-thousand dollar question; to who did the lands of Judea and Samaria belong that Jordan was thus occupying? If you guessed Israel as the proper owner of those lands occupied by Jordan go to the head of the class. The same was true of Gaza which Egypt occupied. This was amongst the reasons that Egypt and Jordan did not retain these lands when making their peace with Israel; they knew full well that those lands belonged rightfully to Israel.

 

The next question would be when was the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), the forerunner of the Palestinian Authority, first organized and come into existence and what was the stated aim of the PLO? The answer is that Yasser Arafat with his second in command Mahmoud Abbas declared the existence of the PLO in 1964 with the stated aim to eradicate Israel and return the occupied lands to their rightful owners, the Jordanians. You see in 1964 the only lands Israel occupied were its boundaries as set in the Armistice of 1949 which is also known as the Green Line and often referred to as the 1967 lines or boundaries. The lands of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) were still under Jordanian occupation and Gaza was still occupied by Egypt in 1964 thus if the Palestinians Arabs having their own state in those areas as is so demanded today, it could have been established between Jordan and Egypt without even bothering to ask or demand anything from Israel. The Palestinian Arab desire is not for their own state but to erase the Jewish state, to destroy Israel and return all of the lands to Islamic rule. Thus the chanted phrase heard so often around the world at demonstrations and such of, “From the river to the sea Palestine will be free,” That is the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea which pretty much defines the eradication of Israel the last time I checked a map and not two nations living side by side in peace and security. Maybe with this in mind we should return to the Israeli upcoming elections.

 

The three frontrunners for the Prime Minister’s leadership of Israel are defined as between Benyamin Netanyahu and the tag team pair of Yitzhak Herzog and Tzipi Livni. Let’s take them in reverse order. Tzipi Livni is a well-known entity. She was a solid Likud member and right-wing Zionist through and through before delusions of grandeur struck her with a touch of insanity. When Ariel Sharon was not able to get the rank and file of Likud to support his unilateral disengagement from Gaza which meant removing close to ten-thousand Israelis from their homes, businesses and communities as well as removal of all IDF troops and security gathering from Gaza he formed a new party named Kadima which Tzipi Livni joined with promises of future high positions dancing in her head. The turning all of Gaza over to the Arab Authority under Mahmoud Abbas, that is Abbas the Holocaust denier who also was fundamental in supervising the funding and approving the plans for which he provided funding of the Munich Olympics murdering of the Jewish teams and their coaches in the Olympic village as well as the funding and particulars in the assassination of an American Ambassador in the Sudan in 1973, would prove to be fateful beyond anything imagined at the time. That means it led directly to the takeover of Gaza by Hamas and the thousands upon thousands of rockets rained down on innocent Israeli civilians ever since which have resulted in three wars in response. Ariel Sharon was struck down by a stroke and subsequently passed on after spending the remaining years of his life without ever regaining consciousness. This placed Tzipi Livni as the favored person to take the next elections for Prime Minister and after the votes were counted it appeared that was to be so as Kadima won twenty-eight mandates and Likud won a mere twenty-seven. Tzipi Livni was on the cusp of winning the Prime Minister’s chair and all that remain was the Israeli President choosing her to form the coalition. The selection fell to Israeli President Peres who had left the Labor Party to also join Kadima before being elected to be President so of course he would choose Tzipi Livni to form the next coalition as Kadima had the most mandates and had won the election. Inexplicably it was not to be so as President Peres decided to give the nod to the second place Likud party placing Netanyahu as Prime Minister. Ever since that day Tzipi Livni has been possessed with becoming the Israeli Prime Minister to make up for having it stolen from her by Netanyahu who she holds responsible for cheating her out of what should have rightfully been her chance to grab the golden ring and lead as she was born to lead. This acting as if fated and her delusions which had her making offers to Abbas which were not approved by the Prime Minister when she was trusted to negotiate with the Arab Authority to try and reach an agreement was simply further evidence that Livni was losing her grip on reality. She now believes that this election was called to prevent her from completing the negotiations and once again she was cheated by Netanyahu, this time from a Nobel Peace Prize. I obviously fear her ever sitting as Prime Minister.

 

Labor Party Leader Yitzhak Herzog has made his feelings quite clear in that he believes that Prime Minister Netanyahu is solely responsible for the soured relations between the White House and the Israeli government. He discounts the good relations which Netanyahu has forged with the Congress and the people of the United States and has set as his campaign theme his promise to repair the damage and reconcile with United States President Obama. He has made it clear that flexibility is what is required and that regress is what must precede progress with the White House. Considering the animosity President Obama has shown for Israel and her safety and interests, making nice and bending to his will can only result in a disaster for Israel. The one saving grace is that even if Herzog were to bend and agree to everything President Obama demands and thus present to Abbas the 1967 lines and east Jerusalem and the withdrawal of every Jew back inside the Green Line, which would be a disaster waiting to happen for Israel, the dangers such a deal would place Israel in would be irrelevant as even such a deal would be refused by Abbas as he would demand the right of return for five-million plus Arab refugees. Even should President Obama also make that one of his demands and Herzog agree, I would continue to expect Abbas to live up to the expectations of Abba Eban who once said, “The Arabs never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” The problem is that once any Israeli Prime Minister agrees to any negotiations point, even if it is refused by the Arabs, the next negotiations will be demanded to begin from that point with everything once previously agreed with included as the starting point and then a list of a number of further demands to be debated. Eventually those debate points become preconditions which Israel is obliged to meet, as if they were as claimed, Israeli obligations. The fact that Herzog is promising to make amends to President Obama and claims that the problem with Prime Minister Netanyahu is that he has been unwilling to make a sufficiently generous and proper offer which would be acceptable to Mahmoud Abbas and that he would be willing to go that extra mile to make peace as getting a peace agreement with Abbas’s signature is necessary because such an agreement will end the terrorist attacks and flowers will bloom and kittens will rain down on little parachutes from the skies. (There are some who believe this situation must have occurred in Nahariya thus providing the town with wall to wall cats everywhere.) Still, a Prime Minister Herzog would weaken any future Israeli attempt to negotiate if that is what is truly desired by the Israeli people, which could be what this election could and should be about, maybe the next one if not this.

 

This leaves Netanyahu who has been Prime Minister since 2009 without making any progress but at least only losing ground in the field of world opinion, something which would be unavoidable no matter who was Prime Minister. The problem with Benyamin Netanyahu is that he lost some pivotal points to President Obama and completely missed some opportunities to regain the upper hand. When President Obama forced him to make an apology on the spot on Air Force One, Prime Minister Netanyahu might have been better served to have refused to take the phone or to have offered a half apology such as he regrets that Prime Minister Erdogan (he was the Turkish Prime Minister at that time) has chosen to make such a monumental problem which has caused this rift between former friends and allies and that we regret that it proved necessary to resort to force in response to the ambush onboard the Mavi Marmara and Israel hopes that relations are able to be repaired and as Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu is willing to meet and discuss any difficulties. There was another pivotal point when Prime Minister Netanyahu was visiting the White House and President Obama reaching the height of hubris, turned to leave the meeting in the middle of discussions and instructed Prime Minister Netanyahu and his advisors to talk amongst themselves and let one of the staffers know when they were ready to meet President Obama’s demands but right then he was going to head to the family quarters in the White House to have dinner with his family and he would return should the Israelis reach some acceptable position. That should have been greeted with an agreement that perhaps both sides were too hungry for cordial discussion and perhaps a fresh start the next day is in order and that they will await the President’s call should he care to continue the discussion, meanwhile Netanyahu and advisors are also going to have dinner at Maison Blanc (one of if not the highest rated restaurant in the nation’s capital). Prime Minister Netanyahu started out in his relations with President Obama with two strikes against him and double vision blurring his being able to judge the coming pitches which were guaranteed to be sharp curve balls. President Obama had set his position on Israel on his initial Inauguration Day when he made his very first call from the Oval Office in the White House that afternoon calling not a head of state or even an ally but he made that first phone call to talk and joke with his friend Mahmoud Abbas. To make matters worse, once Abbas wore thin and was no longer best friend forever, President Obama has let slip who is his best friend currently and that person is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Still, the greatest mistake Netanyahu made was to agree that the two state solution was the only acceptable resolution to the Arab demands for their own state within Israeli lands. Once he made that promise he lost all bargaining power with the American President as all he cared was to hear that agreement to extrapolate to a total Israeli surrender sometime in the future and still within the time frame of his time in office. This is still President Obama’s dream, to force an Arab state next to or even instead of Israel whichever proves necessary and doable.

 

That brings us to what can Israelis do to avoid the traps which have been set all along the path to reconciliation with the Arabs and Mahmoud Abbas as their leader. The choice needs to take the past and the leading events which have brought Israel to this juncture. One of the largest teachable moments was given when Israel pulled the unilateral disengagement of Gaza and the subsequent takeover by Hamas and the ensuing wars between Hamas and Israel. When Israel pulled completely out of Gaza they were supposed to be granted some warming and greater acceptance that Israel was making an effort to meet and win the hearts and minds of the Arabs. The result was not love or even mild support but instead when Hamas took over and began raining rockets and mortars down on Israeli civilians all along the Gaza border and beyond the world sat silent as if nothing was out of balance or demanding denunciations. Finally, when the numbers of rockets became too large and too frequent Israel reacted militarily and one would think that Israel going into Gaza to protect her civilians would have met with support from at least the Europeans or the American President, but nothing of the sort was coming. Instead of understanding or standing with Israel as she defended against the rain of rockets into civilian areas there not only was no support or understanding from the Europeans or the American President but instead there came condemnations from Europe and a call for both sides to show restraint from the United States. The same was the situation the next two times Israel was forced to defend herself with this last summer the United States President taking the additional step of refusing to allow resupply of necessary weaponry including the essential guided munitions which permit for precise targeting thus reducing collateral damage. So we have established the world will hate Israel even when Israel surrenders land in the hopes of peace only to get naked aggressions in exchange for granting land to the Arabs. So much for ever receiving the approval from Europe and not from the current President in the United States, so what next? If the desire is for more of the same then Netanyahu is your man as this is exactly his plan whether he admits so or not and if you want this on steroids potentially surrendering the entirety of Judea and Samaria along with East Jerusalem, then the Livni-Herzog shared Prime Minister are your choice. Choosing thusly will not only place Israel’s future in doubt but will have surrendered many Jewish holy sites which will probably be destroyed just as they were destroyed by the Jordanians. What Israel requires is a new face with a new plan to replace the same old tune where it is Labor then Likud then Labor then Likud back and forth making few if any changes but both making small concessions, the same territorial concessions which have changed the vernacular from Israel retaining almost all of Judea and Samaria along with East Jerusalem to Israel returning to what Abba Eban referred to as the “Auschwitz Borders.”

 

Israel is at a point where she needs, nay, requires a change from the same-old same-old and a drastic turn from the past exercises of giving concessions for the privilege of being spat upon and saying thank you and here is another concessions and some lands you can demand from us for perpetuity into the future. Israel needs a leader who can explain to the people in plain language a future with hope and promise instead of hardships and potentially a deadly decay through pressured negotiations and all which comprises as their conclusion. Likud had an opportunity to offer such change but their list proved that they were not about to select new leader and offer up Danny Danon but overwhelmingly they chose not to change horses in midstream. That leaves looking to the other parties for a choice. The candidate most likely to be in a position to be capable of receiving sufficient votes to receive the nod from President Reuven Rivlin to form a ruling coalition making their party chairman and the holder of the first slot on their ballot becomes Prime Minister. The closest party which is within ten points of the current polling leaders is the Jewish Home Party which is running along with Tacoma Party and together they are approaching twenty votes and real contention. The leader who would become Prime Minister would be Naftali Bennett. His campaign slogan is for Israel to stop apologizing. He makes his point in this video below.

 

 

 

 

Naftali Bennett has realized and stresses those Israeli efforts to play nice and bend and twist to meet every expectation in order to please European governments, the European Union, United Nations, United States, Arab nations, and to prove the BDS and other detractors that Israel is really not such a bad place and that the people are humane and caring. Despite these efforts, the world continues to hate Israel and make more and more demands seemingly with the end result being little or no Israel left. Bennett is suggesting that as long as we are going to be treated in this manner, Israel may as well give the Europeans primarily something they can really sink their teeth into and complain about and return some of what was initially intended to make up Israel. His point makes some sense that as long as everybody will demand concessions from Israel, even as just an enticement to bring Abbas and the Arabs to the negotiating table, is ridiculous and; if anybody will be required to offer something of material worth for Israel, it is the Arabs who should be required to concede something of value before Israel would be required to return to the negotiations table. Every week Abbas decides that he is better off demanding greater offerings before he comes to the table, Israel should annex another few acres of lands. There needs to be a price that the Arabs pay for their intransigence and the best price is land. Bennett’s line for Israelis to stop kowtowing before every nation hopefully will be taken to heart across the width and breadth of the land. Perhaps offering less land and reclaiming much every time Abbas and the Arab spokespeople decide not to negotiate Israel should annex another piece of land or a city. The areas Israel target initially should be the areas where there exist large numbers of Jews already residing followed by the cities of importance from out of the Bible. That means annexing all of Jerusalem then Hevron followed by Shechem (currently known as Nablus), Jericho and so on. The world will go into potentially new areas of indignance with a slight possibility of a few going into catatonic shock completely incapable of speech. Much of the world may initially refuse to recognize the areas annexed by Israel as legitimate but over time they would adjust. Any areas annexed which has a large number of Arabs not citizens of Israel, these people should be offered a choice of continuing to reside in Israel as legal resident foreigners or to relocate at which point they would be given remittance for their property plus a generous relocations allotment and airfare or other transportation costs taking them to whatever country they wish to reside. Areas which Israel would not wish to extend her direct rule would be granted semi-autonomy where they would elect their own leaders and be left to run their own lives but would be under Israeli security and the lands would be considered part of Israel. Perhaps in some future period complete independence may be considered but such would not be guaranteed. Whether or not Abbas and the other kleptocrats would be permitted to remain would be determined at such time as would necessitate such a decision. Needless to say that such actions would negate the Oslo Accords relegating them to the dustbin of history as they already have been shattered by the recent unilateral declarations and moves committed by the Arab Authority which negated their solemn commitments under the Oslo Accords.

Eleven year-old Ayala Shapira and her father, Avner Shapira, were the latest in a long line of victims who have suffered from the rock and firebomb attacks along Israeli roads in the Israeli ruled Area C of Judea and Samaria when the vehicle they were traveling home in was struck by one of those firebombs. Ayala currently lies next to death in the burn center at Sheba (Tel Hashomer) Hospital where she is on life support and the physicians are doing all they are able to save her young life. While her father’s injuries were less severe and he has received treatment, Ayala suffered much more severe burns, as well as other injuries, and is under intensive care and as reported by Professor Ze’ev Rothstein, Director of Sheba Hospital, “It is not clear at this point if her life is in danger. We will do everything possible to save her.” Our prayers and support go out to Ayala, her father and to their family, friends and all who share the effects of this tragedy. May Ayala soon be out of danger and make a speedy recovery followed by a successful long term therapy as may be necessitated to restore to her the level of life and comfort she knew before this assault. May her mental scars fade as well and as quickly as any physical scars fade.

 

She and her father were driving on a side road between Ma’ale Shomron and the new community of El-Matan when their vehicle was struck by a firebomb thrown from another vehicle with a number of young adults inside. The attack is being treated as a terrorist attack and the authorities say all efforts possible are being taken to find and arrest the culprits. Both Ayala and her father were able to free themselves from the burning vehicle but not before suffering severe, life-threatening injuries including burns. Below is a video courtesy of Arutz Sheva News which can also be viewed here. This attack was special only in its results as rock assaults on the roads in and around Jerusalem, as well as throughout much of Israeli countryside, have become daily occurrences with such terrorizing acts being committed numerous times per day. They have become so common as they have received little coverage unless a child is severely injured or even worse, murdered, that the media barely give them any note.

 

The same can be said for the assaults and rioting being carried out on the Temple Mount with the expressed purpose of denying Jews the right to visit, let alone pray which is forbidden Jews and what is meant by maintaining the status quo, by PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas as well as leaders of Hamas out of Turkey who claim to be the ones financing and carrying out such violence. The Temple Mount riots consist of more than simply assaulting the police and security personnel with rocks but also include the use of pyrotechnics which have resulted in numerous instances where security and police personnel have caught fire and suffered burns though fortunately most have only required first aid and only minimal numbers have required sustained hospitalizations. Hamas leadership as well as other Arab leaders, who represent some of the numerous Arab groups under the network of the PLO and Abbas, have openly described the elevated levels of violence as being an actual Intifada though Abbas attempts to deny such terminology as he fears it may have an effect on the levels of funding his many groups receive from Western nations and NGOs. The continued levels of violence, which are most likely activities being established by Hamas, are likely part of two separate but mutually reliant on the sustained violence directions, the denial of Jewish rights wherever and whenever possible and stirring the cauldron to keep it boiling and near to explosive levels as part of the Hamas efforts to appear stronger and more active in fighting and terrorizing Israelis so that they will win any elections should they ever be permitted by Abbas.

 

This brings us back to two items, the current Arab petition before the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the threats made by Abbas should it fail to be approved and the unity government and the likelihood of elections being scheduled before the unity government collapses due to Hamas dissatisfaction with the lack of elections as agreed and their executing other plans they have for garnering complete control over both Gaza and the West Bank. First off, according to the unity governing agreement there were to be elections held within the first six months, a severe failure which was supposed to negate the agreement and return the Arabs to having two governing bodies, one over Gaza controlled by Hamas and one over the West Bank controlled by Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), chairman of the PLO and the leader of the Fatah Party. The Hamas-Israel war over the summer was the initial play by Hamas almost immediately after the agreement for a unity government was formed. The reason behind the Hamas war was to force Mahmoud Abbas into a position where he appeared to be taking all the moves aimed at ending the war on Israel while Hamas continued to resist reaching any agreement, and thus far only a ceasefire exists as no peace or even permanent armistice has been reached and signed, thus molding an image of Western tool carrying out the demands which favored Israel around Abbas through his work to attempt to reach an actual peace or at the least an armistice while the leadership of Hamas was seen as taking the fight to Israel and surviving even to the point of having claimed victory. Just the image of a strong Hamas fighting the good fight against Abbas appearing weak and passive has made Haniyeh, the former leader of Hamas in Gaza, well ahead of Abbas in polls taken including both Gaza and the West Bank and his sole competition to be Mashaal who is the Hamas leader in Qatar. Abbas would lose to either of the Hamas main leaders.

 

This brings us to the same point of the Arabs opposing Israel and demanding their own state, with Abbas claiming to represent their desires, claims to have been facing off phantom menaces, using that to assure elections do not appear for numerous years and again do not appear to be in the cards for any time in the near future. Abbas refuses to hold elections as he realizes that should he lose the election he would likely lose a whole lot more. Abbas, and probably his sons, would be arrested and tried for stealing funds, refusing the will of the people, corruption and whatever other charges the newly elected and most likely Hamas controlled Arab leadership could find to charge them over. The result of such a trial would be Abbas spending the rest of his life in prison, but on the bright side that prison sentence might only last a few very short weeks ending with the execution of Abbas if for no other reason than you do not allow your competition to remain alive and capable of potentially taking back their position and holding you for trial and then executing you. I am pretty sure this is covered in the “President for Life Handbook” (no such book exists to the best of our knowledge) on page three. There is further evidence for this hypothesis as Abbas would likely already have been murdered as part of a Hamas coup attempt which was thwarted by the Israeli Shin Bet (Intelligence Agency) with an assist by the IDF as they arrested a number of the senior members and planners from Hamas who were readying to launch their violent takeover of the West Bank from Abbas which was funded and they armed by Hamas with all control, arms and finance originating with the Hamas leadership in Turkey under Saleh Al-Arouri. Most every act of willful violence over the last approximately nine months since the agreement for the Hamas leadership to stand aside and allow Abbas to continue as leader of numerous groups under separate titles and areas of assigned expertise has been instigated by Hamas, financed by Hamas, planned out by Hamas, lead in the field by Hamas activists and aimed at both Israel and Mahmoud Abbas. The actual acts of violence were aimed at the Israelis in general and the Israeli Jews more specifically while also meant to erode any popularity or visages of coordinating any effective resistance, terror activities, by Mahmoud Abbas and in his stead making Hamas look like the real and true opposition working actively to force the Israelis out of Muslim lands. Abbas is also aware of this offensive smearing his character and supplanting his leadership with the more popular and seemingly competent Hamas leaders.

 

That leaves the demands Abbas appears to be forcing within the United Nations Security Council which states that negotiations will begin on the inception date when the authorized resolution has been enacted and last no longer than one year (twelve months is one unofficial wording we have found which would be interesting as there are three separate and quite different calendars in use between all the parties) followed by Israel being forced from Arab lands and to return to the pre 1967 Six Day War boundaries which were originally set by the armistice signed ending the conflict in 1949 by no later than the end of 2017. One might inquire why the one year of negotiations are necessary if the end results of such negotiations are already spelled out in the next parts of the resolution. The only item not completely resolved would be the Arab claim of right of return within Israel proper meaning the Green Line as apparently it has been established that none of the refugees originated from the lands the Arabs are claiming for their state but all originated within the armistice lines from 1949. This might explain why there are refugee camps in Gaza and within Area A which is under complete Arab control and currently ruled by Mahmoud Abbas who has not seen fit, as Hamas have also ignored, to free the refugees within the refugee camps on lands ruled by their fellow Arabs and instead demand to place them within Israel. Further proof that Abbas is playing a game and not serious about the demands before the United Nations Security Council for their adjudication came when immediately after meeting with United States Secretary of State John Kerry and hearing from the United States officially that they would be using their veto to prevent any possibility for their resolution to be passed, Mahmoud Abbas took to the press and restated his ultimatum to pursue other legal manners to gain statehood for the Arabs living within his autonomous areas plus Gaza making the point that he now represents the entirety of the Arabs and that Hamas is no longer controlling Gaza, well, not officially at least. Mahmoud does not expect nor desire for his resolution to be recognized as should Israeli security apparatus not remain functioning at its current high level of efficiency then Hamas may just execute their next planned coup and that would be the end of Mahmoud Abbas. Very simply, Abbas remains alive for as long as Israel remains in control of the security through most of the lands Abbas is demanding they surrender in his resolution in the UNSC.

 

Even the amended demand added for the year of negotiations is a fantasy which is why it was not in the initial draft and was added pushing the date for the forced Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands back from end of 2016 to the end of 2017. The proof for this is the simple fact that nothing else in the resolution was altered when the negotiations were added as Abbas has no intention of negotiating thus the desired results must be determined independently from this added Band-Aid only added to placate the desire of a number of European Union and the United States desired said negotiations. Another reason that Mahmoud Abbas has little if any desire for Arab statehood is that once that accommodation has been achieved then he and the rest of the Arab terrorist infrastructure will have to actually rule the people and will not have the occupation to blame for any problems, especially about faulty water and electrical service and the foreign funding will begin to decline and eventually, much sooner than Abbas would like, end altogether and the Arab governance will have to make everything run on funds raised from within their soon to be failed state. Sometimes receiving what you demand results in exactly those things you have resisted for the past fifty years which will be beyond one’s ability to perform. Abbas has been continuing the same game that Yasser Arafat played before him which requires burning the candle at both ends and finally Mahmoud Abbas may be running really short on candle and the flames just might be meeting in the middle real soon and guess who will receive the judgment from their own people, a people who will not be in the mood for more excuses. Abbas has problems rushing towards him from every direction and much of that has been of his own doing. Perhaps his chickens are coming home to roost.

The original petition for United Nations Security Council to intervene and grant Mahmoud Abbas his own fiefdom cut from the body of the Jewish state, guaranteed under issuance fully backed by the League of Nations and spelled out through the determinations of the San Remo Conference where it was established as inviolate and recognized and rededicated under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, was lacking the ruse of at least making mention of further attempts to reach a mutual resolution through direct negotiations with Israel. What the Western nations plus Japan realize is that they are obligated to guarantee all the lands from the Jordan River west to the Mediterranean Sea as reserved in perpetuity for the formation of the Jewish state and that the lands east of the Jordan River to the border with Iraq, the land by mutual agreement with the early Zionists, was reserved for the Arabs of the region. This resolution of the partition of the lands resulted in a number of Jews surrendering their lands and moving their residence west of the Jordan River yet somehow the Arabs living west of the Jordan River were never required to move east of the Jordan River but did require those who desired to remain to realize they would be living in a state which was to be governed by the Zionists, the Jews. The agreements put in place did not allow for Jews to remain under the areas ruled by Jordan east of the Jordan River but permitted and guaranteed the Arabs living west of the Jordan River to continue to have freedom of religion and the rights to own land and reside on that land but it reserved political powers to the Jews and those who the Jews desired to grant political power. This was most evident at the outset of the state of Israel where the Arab population outnumbered the Jewish population but the government was recognized despite it consisting of largely Jews as that was the Jewish Zionists utilizing their guarantee as the sole purveyors of political powers. With time the Israelis recognized and granted the Arabs living within their borders under the armistice which ended what is often recorded as the Israeli War of Independence but in reality was the first genocidal war to rid the lands west of the Jordan River of its Jewish abomination as viewed by the Arab League who had refused a suggested patrician which was nonbinding as it was passed by the General Assembly, thus as soon as the Arab League refused that suggestion it became voided. That voiding of that nonbinding resolution forever negated any Arab claim to lands west of the Jordan River without Israeli recognition and permission which is the main reason that the resolution of any Arab claim to the lands west of the Jordan River must be resolved through negotiations with Israel. Unless Israel grants such lands for Arab rule, the lands west of the Jordan River remain under Israeli jurisdiction and only those permitted political rights may participate in elections for the ruling body over these lands, the Knesset.

 

It was in recognition of this reality that the new resolution was adopted and replaced their initial petition. The original petition by Abbas and the Arab League demanded that the United Nations Security Council negate the promises under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and grant them by fiat the lands they claim which were the lands illegally occupied by Jordan and Egypt after their unsuccessful attempt to annihilate the Jewish state immediately after its declaration of independence. In that effort to wrest control of the lands legally reserved for the Jewish state there were troops dedicated from the armies of seven Arab nations plus a number of militias some of which were directly under the command of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini. The Armistice of 1949 left lands of Gaza in Egyptian hands and the lands of Judea and Samaria in the hands of Jordan. Egypt never attempted control over the lands in Gaza but Jordan did attempt to annex the lands it held west of the Jordan River renaming Judea and Samaria as the West Bank in an unveiled attempt to erase their Jewish roots. This annexation of these lands resulted in the granting of citizenship to the population remaining after the Jewish population which survived the massacres in the lands held by the Arab forces to surrender their properties and resettle within the areas under Israeli rule. The annexation of the renamed Judea and Samaria (West Bank) was not accepted by the nations of the world, not even the Arab and Muslim nations, and was granted recognition solely by Britain and Pakistan. The Arab League went as far as to insist that the borders at the end of the warring in 1949 be granted title of Armistice Lines and was never to be used as borders for any state nor were they to be recognized as permanent but was a temporary denotation until a final resolution could be reached. What they left unsaid was that they considered the Armistice of 1949 to be a Hudna, a temporary truce until such time as the Islamic forces believe themselves sufficiently robust so as to complete the intentions of the original conflict, in this case the eradication of Israel.

 

The point where the forces of Islam, in this case the United Arab Republic (UAR), which constituted Egypt and Syria, in June of 1967 when Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran, a casus belli to war under the Suez Treaty of 1956, and both Egypt and Syria massed troops on the southern and northern borders of Israel respectively were the initial starting borders of the Six Day War. Once the fighting had commenced both the Egyptian and Syrian radio and television broadcasts were reporting great advances and victories for their troops against the presumably ill-equipped and timid Jewish troops of Israel. Upon hearing of these feats and accomplishments, the King of Jordan decided he would take the opportunity of assisting in the final conquest of Israel with his Arab allies. The Israelis beseeched King Abdullah informing him that the Syrian and Egyptian broadcasts were untrue but he chose to believe the Egyptians and Syrians and saw the Israeli behests as further proof they were weak and being overrun. The result was that Jordan also lost lands in that war as Egypt lost Gaza and the entire Sinai Peninsula and Syria the Golan Heights and some lands beyond reaching towards Damascus. The conclusion of battle left Israel in control of the Golan Heights from Syria, having retreated from the lands past that point considering them to be not offering a defendable advantage such as what was offered by the heights; the Gaza and Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, all the way to the Suez Canal; and all of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) from Jordan, all the way to the Jordan River reestablishing the proper and guaranteed border as delineated in every treaty concerning these lands. Israel annexed the eastern sections of Jerusalem originally held illegally by Jordan, gained in an offensive war in 1948-9. Israel also annexed the Golan Heights under the provisions that Israel be permitted to retain those lands sufficient and tactically vital to establish defendable borders. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt as part of their peace treaty returning Israel to their formerly recognized borders with Egypt. There are those within Israel who desired that Israel retain at a minimum half of the Sinai Peninsula establishing her border to be drawn down the mountain range in the central Sinai Peninsula as these also offered a defendable position if Israel was not planning on retaining the Suez Canal as her border. This position was overruled by the majority of the government and accepted their decision. The United Nations decision ending the Six Day War demanded that Israel return lands, not all lands but simply lands without any qualifiers allowing Israel to establish secure borders. Once Israel had returned the Sinai Peninsula, an area of land many times the size of Israel itself, the Israeli obligation had been technically satisfied and there was no actual problem when after the peace with Jordan, where Jordan released claims to their so-called West Bank, that Israel retain the lands of Judea and Samaria and recognize the Jordan River as the new border for Israel fulfilling the original treaties which recognize and are intended to enforce the acknowledgment of the San Remo Conference as well as the League of Nations adoption of that Conference thus making it enforceable by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and established international law.

 

The sole difficulty with such an arrangement was that as some Jordanians had moved and now resided in these areas and there was the problem of where the refugees who had mostly fled before the start of the 1948-9 war by the Arab forces to annihilate the nascent state of Israel, all of which had been relegated to refugee camps where their Arab brothers corralled them and encircled them with fences, some even including barbed and concertina wire barricades, denying them the right to reside and own land, work, gain citizenship, or even visit with family outside their restrictive camps for fear they might not return. These captives are the refugees which Arafat once claimed as his dear brothers held in camps by the Jews despite the camps not being within Israel but in Arab controlled areas and held in camps by Arab security forces while the Arabs residing within Israel after the Armistice was declared in 1949 due to the fact that they remained throughout the conflict not posing any threat to the Israelis, some even fighting with the Israelis in that desperate struggle which the Israelis survived by the grace of G0d, being granted Israeli citizenship with all the rights and privileges that engendered, and the same Arabs Abbas claims need to be rejoined with their proper lands within Israel, always amazed me that none of these Arab brothers of Abbas and formerly Arafat resided in Judea and Samaria but all resided with some claimed to have resided in Tel Aviv and even within places which were unoccupied at the time of their departure, largely at the behest of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who guaranteed them they would return and enjoy in the rewards of the Jewish treasure after they had been destroyed, and a lesser number were evicted largely as they posed a threat from within as they sided with the Arab forces attempting to destroy Israel. The refugees in modern times are the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and possibly some great great grandchildren and all have lived their entire lives in the refugee camps in Gaza City, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria (until recently when they were shelled and targeted by the Syria troops loyal to Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad), and inside Area A of Judea and Samaria which is under civil and security control of Abbas yet he continues to restrain his own claimed countrymen and countrywomen all so he can foist them on Israel to force an Arab majority on Israel in order to erase its Jewish character. What mutes such a plan is the guarantor of sole political rights and control and only property and religious rights to the Arab population within Israel by treaty, the Arabs which Abbas insists be placed within Israel are not automatically granted full political rights under international law that recognizes treaties. Israel is not legally under international law required to establish or surrender any of the lands of Judea and Samaria nor is Israel required to automatically grant full citizenship rights to the Palestinian Arabs but only required to grant them civil rights and religious rights guarantees and protections, not political rights. The Arabs living within Judea and Samaria who were granted citizenship by Jordan after they took illegal control over Judea and Samaria might have an opportunity to act on that promise if they relocated to Jordan but this would need to be ratified under international ruling as Jordan claimed to have repealed and annulled their citizenship though such may not be legally recognized.

 

The above is why Abbas altered the demand for United Nations Security Council to adopt a binding Chapter Seven Resolution using the full power of the United Nations and enforceable by their combined military might to force Israel to retreat back within the pre-Six Day War lines as denoted in the Armistice of 1949, which was declared to never be considered as a border by the Arab League, the same group which is declaring it now a border, by the end of November 2016 instead to read that negotiations are to be reinitiated and completed within twelve months of the ratification of the binding resolution and for the forced evacuation from all lands claimed by the Palestinian Arabs by no later than November 2017. This inclusion of terms demanding that a resolution be negotiated is a ruse as Abbas has no intention of actually reaching any peace agreement which would require that he promise that such an agreement ends the hostilities and that he recognize Israel as the Jewish state and homelands and that there be no further demands. Making such an agreement would require Abbas to relent on his promise to the Arab world and the Arabs who regard him as their President for life to replace Israel with the state of Palestine and force the Jews out of the lands by whatever means is most efficient. Even should Abbas ever reach such an agreement, he would be incapable of enforcing said agreement as he would be removed from his office either by elections, which is why he has avoided holding his office up for election suspending those very elections since 2006 when Hamas won the majority of seats in the Arab parliament, and if not lost through elections then lost as Abbas lost control of Gaza through insurrection. Thus, Israel can only make an agreement with Abbas with a proviso that Israel enforces the security over most of the lands of Judea and Samaria until such time as peace is assured and proper elections and the rule of law becomes guaranteed and self-enforced by the Arabs. This is a situation which has zero chance of coming to fruition as long as the schools are run by the Arabs and by the authority of Abbas and his position or under Hamas control as in any case these schools are utilized predominantly to educate the youth to jihad and the destruction of Israel and death of the Jews. Abbas has only included wording of further negotiations such that he can then demand that Israel accept his demands in their entirety as conditions for negotiations and then refuse to accept actual negotiations and blame Israel for refusing to negotiate under his demands for their complete surrender up front and leaving nothing to negotiate. Abbas also refuses to permit any Israeli position for consideration even to denying he will or could ever recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish People nor will he ever promise to end hostilities by which he means the terror wars that have been initiated by the Arab forces be they Fatah under Abbas or Hamas under Haniyeh or Mashaal. All the new resolution accomplishes is to put the date for the world to descend upon Israel back by one year adding the rouse of negotiations which Abbas will destroy by any means necessary. Abbas realizes that he has reached the intended target where Israel is now expected to surrender the entirety of Judea, Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem, the entirety of the lands gained from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War contravening the spirit and the letter of the resolutions passed after that war by the United Nations, a very carefully worded agreement (resolution 242 can be read here).

 

What the United Nations must do if they are to remain true to what they themselves set up as international law regarding the resolution of the Six Day War despite all the attempts by the Arab forces to renege and rescind that agreement. The United Nations individual members are all likely aware that the only settlement which will satisfy the bloodlust against Israel in general and the Jews in particular is the complete eradication of Israel wiping it from the map. This has been the mantra of Yasser Arafat and is the mantra currently of Mahmoud Abbas, of Fatah, of Ismail Haniyeh, of Khaled Mashaal, of Hamas, of Islamic Jihad, of al-Qaeda, of ISIS, of Iran, of Syria, of Turkey, of Hezballah and of numerous European and other nations and terrorist groups throughout the world. There is no denying this nor is there any doubt of this by any truthful person who has spent any time researching or living this situation. There are Israelis still blinded by the prospect of reaching a peace, or having a piece of paper to wave in the air and claim that the next invasion by Arab and Muslim armies such as ISIS, Iran, Hezballah (which rules Lebanon for all intents and purposes), even Turkey (despite the denials publically by Recep Tayyip Erdogan belying his statements spoken within his nations and amongst those he trusts) and probably nearly countless other nations, their leaders, their representatives, and even some within the Israeli parliament the Knesset such as Haneen Zoabi, Ahmad Tibi (who served as an advisor to Yasser Arafat and now sits in the Israeli Knesset) and likely others. Despite the grant words and erudite pronouncements flowing forth before the media adding great flourishments and embellishments making everything sound so plausible and acceptable but hidden within is a small kernel of truth left unmodified and stated with minimal emphasis in the hopes it will be lost in the hearing and reporting made public. These have proven to be the practices of the past but in the end the demands by Abbas for the United Nations to enforce his wildest fantasies of establishing a foothold on the way to replacing Israel with an Arab state will be denied and the only demand that will be issued is yet one more insistence that Israel and the Arabs reach an accord, a negotiated settlement. Even the rumored French plan to be submitted at some undisclosed future state will also result in a similar, if not identical, insistence that the two parties reach a negotiated settlement. The truth which remains unspoken is that by international law all of the lands west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea are reserved for the Jewish state, for Israel. The leaders of the world are fully aware of their obligations under treaty to establish and enforce a Jewish state, Israel being that state, in those territories and unless Israel signs an agreement relinquishing her rightful claims to said lands, the rest of the world has two choices, enforce international law and demand that if any other entity is to be recognized in the space currently under Israeli control, that entity must gain the good graces by Israel granting them privileges in ruling over any part within those lands or taking the lands from Israel by force of arms, by conquest through warfare, a conflict which Abbas or Hamas would lose and they are fully aware of this fact or they would not be petitioning the United Nations, they would have taken the lands by force already. They are petitioning the United Nations to apply the force they themselves are incapable of producing to take the land forcefully. Should the United Nations ever agree to such an act it would mark the abrogation of everything the United Nations was established to protect, the rights and privilege of safe and protected borders free from the impingement by outside forces. It would mark the end of the United Nations even having the pretense of enforcing the rules of established international law under the treaty produced at the San Remo Conference.

 

Below I would love to present the welcome to the latest group of Jews rejoining their family here in Israel from the far reaches of India where the Bnei Menashe have practice their Judaism removed from us for approximately 2,700 years. It is with warmth and familial love that we welcome our brothers and sisters both young and old back into the fold. The video of their initial welcome at the airport is below or can be seen here.
