Israel gets some bad public relations if one depends on the news, editorials, talk radio and just about any mass media, even movies and other entertainment. Living in Israel very quickly dispels all the lies. Are there a few choice people who might make one take a less than superb view, but such are rare and even they warm with time. Needless to say, not knowing or speaking the language causes some difficulties but there is almost always somebody there to lend a translating hand. There was the time we were at a McDonalds and the woman at the counter spoke no English and two what had to be young High School age girls came in and realizing the communication problem immediately became our translators without being asked. Generally there are those who willingly offer to give directions to whatever place you need to find in ten minutes to make the appointment and it is your first time in the city and you got off the bus where you thought was the closest stop. That time we only missed by one or two stops and had to walk about a mile or so, you get used to walking in Israel because so much living is city center style European life, an initial system shock after life in the outer suburbs in the United States.

 

Our friends, acquaintances and relatives are quite surprised when we relate the ease and general atmosphere in Israel. When we tell them that we have found Israel more accommodating and generally having a softer and more easy and comforting nature they tend to express great surprise. One might expect that in Israel life would have an edge on it with the constant threats from virtually any direction and the added unpleasant surprise with the Iranian nuclear threat and President Obama and his team’s animosities and threats thrown at Israel but they would be quite wrong. Probably the best description we could give as a true barometer of Israel and Israelis would be to take everything ever attributed to Israel and her people by the United Nations General Assembly and the United Nations Human Rights Commission or virtually any other United Nations agency etcetera and take it all and place the initials of the United Nations in front of them but in small letters and then read the entirety as one word. An easy example would be if some United Nations commission claimed Israelis harbored a genocidal hatred then all one need do is take the two words and place the letter un in front giving you ungenocidal and unhatred and you would produce an honest appraisal. Sure it would take ignoring your spellcheck and do some translations where ungenocidal would become accepting of others people who are different and unhatred would become lovers making the entire accusation translate into accepting and caring for peoples who differ from Jews and accepting, caring and considerate of people who are of any other stereotypical, racial, religious or nationality different from Israeli or Jewish. A closer inspection of Israeli actions around the world will better exemplify this example.

 

When Haiti was struck by that devastating earthquake, the Israelis were amongst the first to have responders on the ground evaluating any special needs. Israel had the first field hospital which was equipped with X-ray equipment, a gynecological unit, a neonatal unit, burn center, surgical rooms, prosthetics and physical therapy, emergency room, and virtually every department and specialists which was on the ground and set up within six days of the earthquake. This hospital remained on the ground even after the search and rescue units had stood down. Israel also opened clinics in areas where urgent care not requiring the abilities of a full hospital were present and when the Israelis left Haiti a number of these clinics remained completely equipped with diagnostic, monitoring and other equipment and Israel had trained people in the area such as orphanage, school or other personnel who would be capable of offering care after the Israelis had left.

 

When Typhoon Haiyan spread destruction throughout much of the Philippines, Israel arrived with an one-hundred-forty-eight person team, including search, rescue and medical services and a fully functioning field hospital with one-hundred tons of aid. Making rescue and aid assistance even more difficult was when the typhoon struck, the region was still reeling from the Bohol earthquake in October before. One of the more interesting reports on the Israeli presence at the time was on television news where an on the scenes reporter had been directed to a small village not on one of the main Islands by the Philippine government when she requested assistance in reaching the “most remote village” to report on how they were coping with the aftermath of the storm. Imagine her surprise to find a clinic operated by Israelis already set up and operating while training the local villagers on how to treat people for emergency aid and familiarizing them with the equipment which the Israelis would leave behind as well as the clinic itself with one Israeli aid worker to remain behind and work for the next six months or so with the villagers to assure that they have received whatever training might arise.

 

When Nepal recently had their massive earthquake, once again Israel was amongst the first to respond and the operation was much like the one in Haiti with one exception which was remarkable; Israel took care to the most remote of places, some of which had rarely if ever seen support even from the Nepalese government where Israel set up satellite care units often referred to as clinic in a backpack, though we would hate to have to carry such a backpack, they are quite heavy (pictured below). These remote aid clinics provided urgent and critical care close to the, and often on the, mountain slopes treating climbers and vacation goers as well as native Nepalese citizens. They also operated as a remote triage for when victims were stabilized and given what treatment was available at the clinic and once the patients were stabilized for transport having them taken to the main Israeli or other field hospital.

Israel has sent aid groups to other areas struck by natural calamities with teams having gone to Japan after their earthquake and tsunami disaster, Myanmar after the tsunami, Turkey after they suffered an earthquake and offered assistance to the United States after hurricane Katrina swamped New Orleans and destroyed entire fishing towns along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, and reportedly one of a very remote few to offer assistance to the United States. When one considers the Save a Child’s Heart program and how it saves children of all ages who have debilitating if not life-threatening heart problems as well as setting up entire departments in hospitals around the world and training their staff and physicians on how to diagnose and treat these children including training the heart surgeons on how to perform these sensitive and vital surgeries, Israel leaves all the equipment the staff was trained on with the hospital.

 

And the Israelis you meet, see, work with and just generally run across are some of the most patient people and really do try to help in their own manner. They may sometimes have difficulty in expressing things in English but many are actually happy and anxious to use their English and respond well when one states the words in the correct syntax as that is important to them. Sentence structure in Hebrew is different than in English and thus literal word for word translations quite often makes for what at first one takes as Yoda speak from Star Wars, perhaps it was direct translation of Hebrew to English that was the basic transference used to make Yoda syntax. Our Hebrew is embarrassingly inadequate to even make a scheduled appointment and get the day of the week correct not to mention the time as some places use a twenty-four hour clock which reminds all of military times.

 

Then there is a tight knit group of what are referred to as Anglos, basically English speakers, and we have events, trips, sightseeing, Torah, Talmud and Bible classes for men and women and we have found our level of social activities is vastly more active and on a level of friendliness equal to our best of times and friends back in the United States. Another thing which leads to such is that Israel is a rather small nation, approximately the size of New Jersey, though that is misleading as the southern two-fifths, or forty-percent, of Israel is made up of the Negev Desert which is rather sparsely populated. Where New Jersey has a population of nine-million, Israel’s population is just over eight-million. Of course there are some groups who pretty much stick to their own group of like-minded and religious viewpoints such as the Haredi. In much of Israel where there is a mix of Arab and Jewish populations there is no evident difference in the treatment and the interactions are natural and as normal as humanly possible. In the area we reside there are Arab and Muslim stores and employees in larger stores or other places of employment are seamless as to their fitting into the society as a whole. At the regional hospital there are Muslim and Arab nurses, physicians, technicians and all positions and everything functions, as we said, seamlessly. The street signs are all written in Hebrew, Arabic, and English with some towns sporting French or Spanish or Russian, though we have yet to see one which had more than four languages and usually just the three required languages. What is always amusing is when a store has its name actually an English name but the letters on their sign is in Hebrew. What gets confusing is that when you read some of these signs you try to think what the prefixes and suffixes are as Hebrew has many words result only in a letter prefix or suffix. Some examples of prefixes are the ‘v’ which means ‘and’ along with an ‘h’ which means ‘the’ while the suffixes often give one the gender of the word as well as if it is singular or plural or includes the speaker or listener in the plural group and so on. Over half of learning Hebrew are the prefixes and the gender and singular versus plural of the words. Someday we will get a reliable translation program for our phones, or should we call them what the phones have become, life assistants and general applications from pictures to recordings, getting e-mail, surf the Web, record our every move and change of mood on Facebook, well, not quite, and most important movie or still camera and recorder.

 

Basically, virtually everything UNcomplimentary about Israel are UNtrue. Contrary to popular belief they are not contrarians. Israelis are like all peoples, there are the great, the good and the we wish they were nicer types. Many fall all over themselves attempting to make our lives as stress free as possible which had to be stressing on them. Of course it might be that as the ancient Hebrew scholars made a point of hammering into our stories and writings, people will only treat you as well as you treat them and life can be like a mirror to one’s soul which is revealed by ones actions when it appears nobody is watching, because, as we are taught in Judaism and is likely taught though with a slight difference, there is always somebody watching us from on High and nothing escapes that view as our innermost thoughts to our most expressed emotions. We can also count that such observations tell whether we’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake. Still, there is something else which permeates through the society at large. There is an air of optimism and hopefulness. You feel a vigor for living life and finding meanings where other places simply ignore and accept things as is. In Israel there is this striving to be better as a people and as individuals. There is also a level of acceptance which makes one more comfortable simply being themselves as all will be just fine in the end. There are more young children than we were used to in the United States. This too adds to the optimism as a society with declining populations is what is destroying Europe right before our eyes. They are dancing their last dance in Europe and if things continue as has been the scenario we in Israel will become all the more isolated and an Island of freedom and democracy in a sea of misfortune. There is still hope for Europe but only if they turn their ship of state around and rediscover what gave them the impetus to live life to the fullest and explore the world, that spark of life which made passing their ideas and ideals on to the next generation, something difficult to do when there are so few children born to the indigenous Europeans. Israel will only grow stronger as the Jews of Europe make their final decision and that plague may soon prove to be a prophesy for the United States though that need not be their future written in stone. The United States has a far better opportunity to reverse the slipping trend before the slope becomes too steep and wet for any traction and down becomes the only direction. We are both glad we have come to Israel and Israel has proven to be a wellspring of optimism and life, a future of light and enlightenment, more than a completion as it is an opportunity to grow with such splendor and a kaleidoscope of choices each colored so vividly and vibrant. It is really hope eternal or as close as we have seen on Earth. It is great to be at home, the home which was destined and a good, no, great home it is and will grow from there. Needless to say, but we do not expect the United Nations to understand as they are the people of ‘UN’ and that sums them up in total.

United Nations Working Group Plans for Jews and Israel

 

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has discovered the source of Arab violence against Jews, and particularly Israeli Jews, was that the Jews made them do it. That’s right, the Jews have forced the Arab Palestinians to attack Jews like wild-men attempting to stab Jews or ram vehicles into bus stops and other places where there are many people, assumed to be Jews, in a close proximity because the Jews won’t give them the lands they demand. Has Ban Ki-Moon bothered to ask any Arab Palestinians other than the Palestinian Authority (PA) master manipulators of lies and half-truths or is this something he dreamed up as it has become the main theory of those who believe they have the answers such as Ban Ki-Moon, President Barack Obama, secretary of State John Kerry, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini or her predecessor the Lady Catherine Ashton or any of any number of European and United Nations Human Rights aficionados? Probably not, as he has stated this inane, malicious, odious, vindictive, anti-Semitic verbal conceptual compost before; and we are being kind. All of the others mentioned share this unoriginal idea that Jews are to be restricted as to where they are permitted to build their house or establish their family residence. There was the ghetto in Rome that to this day is where Jews reside or the Warsaw ghetto where Jews were piled to the point of making the entire area an unhealthy living area with health concerns whenever the density gets so tight that entire families end up residing in a single room sharing an apartment with as many other families as there were rooms with more than one often in the living room making the spread of disease a guaranteed part of existence. When Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria they refused to allow Jews who owned lands, homes, farms and businesses to remain in the lands they captured during their participation in an offensive war which intended to result in the extermination of the Jews but they had to settle for stealing their lands, businesses, homes and anything they could not carry as they were given merely hours to vacate and resettle inside what became the Green Line. Are these Jews now to be denied their own businesses, lands, homes and farms or is the ejection ordered by Jordan now going to be enforced for the Arabs left behind when Judea and Samaria were liberated during the Six Day War and if so where are they to turn to receive some form of reparations for their difficulties and loss of property as both should have equal claiming rights and reparations or neither should receive any form of relief.

Of course there will be no compensation for not only the Jews dispossessed of their properties by Jordan after the Arab Initiated War to Annihilate the Jews and Destroy Israel just as there has been and will never even be discussed what is owed the Jews who were dispossessed in multiple Arab and Muslim nations or reparations for the family members of the Jews murdered in Arab Pogroms across the Arab and Muslim worlds. There will always be reparations owed to Arabs by any Jewish state no matter how truncated Israel may end up as after there have been a series of peace accords each one giving the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians another piece of Israel for peace until the next Intifada which will be resolved with another piece accord where another piece of Israel will be awarded these Arabs just as before. But Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon had a lot to say about the Jewish problem. He listed the fact that the Arab violence was “bred from nearly five decades of Israeli occupation.” These odious ideas were voiced at the United Nations conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, on the “Rights of the Palestinian people” and the situation in Jerusalem. That isn’t too slanted a conference, now is it? Of course it is, but we are not supposed to think like that as that is thought crime which the United Nations cannot yet impose corrective confinement and reeducations, but they are working to get such powers as it will be for the good of the people, especially the children as everything worthwhile is sold as being for the children. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon knows that the violence that has been forced from the Arab youth as “the result of fear, humiliation, frustration and mistrust. It has been fed by the wounds of decades of bloody conflict, which will take a long time to heal. Palestinian youth in particular are tired of broken promises and they see no light at the end of the tunnel.” He is so wise and knowledgeable and worldly so we must listen and heed his wonderful words of copping out and taking the easiest way out targeting the civilized society which will not test the armor of his car while it transports him in New York as the Israelis and Jews in general are an understanding people who realize that people such as Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the rest of the world political elite take the safety of blaming the Jew for the hatred being perpetrated upon them because Europe and all university educated from Ivy League universities and the finest schools in Europe where history is told with a twist as is taught in the department of Middle East politics which has become known benefactors such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates who dictate policy, course material and provides numerous teachers, administrators and highly active students who are often members of some Muslim Brotherhood sponsored youth group. They demand that their version of the world history and political science be taught, after all, they were the ones with the ready cash. Of course their influence at these fine institutions of higher learning extends beyond their teachings; their influence can be seen in school’s with active BDS and Israel apartheid demonstrations just for starters.

 

Following Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s compromise for the dealing with the demands of the leadership of the Arabs known as Palestinians will run into one singular problem, the Arab leadership has demanded the Israelis pull back to the Green Line in exchange for nothing changing except the Jews have been pushed back. They will then demand some additional lands such that it more closely resembles the deal they refused back in 1948 but chose war instead. Then they will claim there was some prehistory line that they owned and that needs to be liberated before they can be satisfied. Eventually the state of Israel will stretch from Nahariya in the north to Ashkelon in the south and only a single mile strip along the coast and as Jerusalem has been declared a universal city which anybody may visit, which was originally administered for the first three weeks by an United Nations peacekeeping force but due to unforeseen small difficulties the enforcement of equal rights and equal access to Jerusalem has been turned over to the Waqf and the Arab Palestinian government. Should such a series of appeasements be attempted to appease Mahmoud Abbas or Saab Erekat then Israel would be pressed to their coast with the Mediterranean Sea plus access to Jerusalem which at last is safely in the hands of the Muslim Jordanian Waqf which Jews would need petition for permission to enter Jerusalem. What more could go wrong?

 

Oddly enough things could get worse if Israel were to do as so many believe would end the problem, but would it? The idea is Israel should unilaterally form the two states as it is drawn up by the United Nations but we already know the Arabs would reject such as they have rejected such an offer twice already. There are those few who claim it is not too late to give the Jews the Island of Madagascar, which was an alternative to the Middle East that was actually presented and wisely rejected by the Zionist Congress. Imagine what such would have caused, there would have been a tribe of Arabs living in southwestern Yemen near the Bab al-Mandab Strait which could trace their roots back to Madagascar and Israel would be facing the exact same problem. Actually it would be worse as the Jews have no recognized claims to Madagascar. Our actual homeland is what we have a rightful claim to complete with treaties and validations from three-thousand-years of history, so the Zionist Congress knew what they had set in motion. They just were unaware that the world would treat Israel both as the only place every Jew should be located, willingly or unwillingly, while at the same time demanding that the Jews return to their former countries of residence and resume a normal life as if nothing had happened. Never mind that many of the Jews who attempted exactly the same return were met with hostile reactions by their former neighbors and if they were fortunate they escaped with their lives and becoming true people without a country. If ever the Jewish People were in need of a homeland, the end of World War II was that time. Many a European Jew had no place they could call their own and things were turning from bad to worse for the Jews residing in the Arab and Muslim worlds. If ever the Jews were in need of a blessing, the holy lands were just that, the place where a Jew could relate to the area from the stories they read about and had studied from Torah and other Bible narratives. A Jew could arrive at the shores of this land and know they were coming home, that the dry bones were collecting into a people again with the first signs of sinew holding them into individual persons representing every Jew who came home. This was the second wave and the wave which forever proved that we had matured and grown sufficiently deserving of making the return to Eretz Yisroel, but who knew this truly was their land.

 

But once again the successes of the Jewish people would cause additional problems. The Jews brought the land to life revealing her abundance which had remained hidden from all others who came during the land’s history. This made for great wealth and opportunities which the surrounding Arabs saw and desired to also reap the benefits of the returning Jews so they flocked to Israel as well after the War of Annihilation, also called Israel’s War for Independence when War for Survival would even have been more apt a name. The Arabs have never been happy for others to be more productive; then they demand their share of the wealth when that is the case. That is the entire idea behind the Jizya, the tax on those who are not Muslim. The problem in Israel is that they cannot apply a Jizya on the Jews, an especially onerous Jizya commensurate with their apparent good fortune which has to be at the expense of Allah’s most wonderful servants, thus the building anger. Further, the fact that Israel is not ruled by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, after the lands had been conquered by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, it must not be permitted to fall under any other rule, it has been Islmisized. Many like to quote the Quran where it recognized the Jewish ties to Eretz Yisroel and made it a deed Muslims were obliged to permit that the Jews reside and rule themselves in their lands. The problem is that was part of the Mecca Quran and was superseded by the verses which simplified things in the Medina verses of the Quran which take precedence over anything contradictory from the Mecca Quran. The Medina Quran simply divided the world into two houses, the House of Islam (Dar al-Islam Arabic: دار الإسلام) and House of War (Dar al-Harab Arabic: دار الحرب) which defined the world as that pacified by Islam and which could never be permitted to be removed from Islamic rule, and the lands yet to be pacified by Islam. Islam sees all the world which is not of Islam as a vile and violent place simply needing the guidance and order of Islam societal structure under the Sharia (Islamic Law which governs all aspects of life down to the individual actions such as how to eat, dress etc.) where the Muslims are supreme and all others are Dhimmi or souls left wanting of Islam who were of a lesser level of human being than a follower of Islam who are blessed with great knowledge and understanding as they have memorized or at least learned much of the Quran, Hadiths and other Islamic writings and thus have been introduced to all knowledge in the cosmos as there is only the Quran and all other writings are insignificant as the Quran holds all knowledge. For a short but helpful explanation of the Mecca and Medina Quranic writings, their difference and the reasons societal and in the like of Muhammad which made them so different may we recommend one of our much earlier articles on the subject titled Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and hope it and the other links, mostly in the comments section, will be of some help.

The fact that the area of Israel and Jerusalem in particular are so important to prevent the Jews from having their own areas and with self-rule as well is simply an anathema to the followers of Islam as they have already spilled copious amounts of blood fighting to prevent the Christians from taking back the Holy Lands they had hoped that was a done deal after the prolonged Caliphate both before and after the rise of the Ottomans who at least had the decency of being Islamic themselves. For this reason the Muslims insist on retaining these lands. The Muslim nations with assistance from the non-aligned nations (NAM) hold a large majority when voting as a bock throughout the United Nations with the exception of the Security Council and only not there due to the veto wielding power of the five permanent members, Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States. This majority holds in the Human Rights Council, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the BDS NGOs which are controlled, though many likely are unaware of this, out of Ramallah and the offices of Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat, Yasser Abed Rabbo, Hanan Ashrawi, Khaled Abu Toameh, Mohammed Omer, Nabil Sha’ath, Mohammad Dahlan, Jibril Rajoub, Mohammad Shtayyeh and Salam Fayyad along with who knows who else from the ranks of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), the Fatah Party, the al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigades upper ranks and possibly even Marwan Barghouti from out of his jail cell, or more accurately, his social club and editorial board headquarters with slight restrictions on travel though writing editorials for the New York Times and other leftist news outlets apparently is not too difficult a task. The United Nations and international NGOs are all too often directly or indirectly influenced or even organized and run by the Arabs of the Palestinian Authority and the associated terrorist groups that it boggles the mind. Then there are the left wingnuts who protest Israel and only Israel and are often given generous budgets through the many arms, councils, organizations and study groups and all of this international industry being co-managed between the United Nations and Ramallah. These offices of the PLO, PA and the various United Nations NGOs are so ubiquitous as to drown out any truths which might almost surface before being trampled and maligned in the world media, at conferences, in press releases, in the General Assembly Emergency Meetings, which thus far have convened for the sole purpose of denouncing Israel. The denunciations vary little usually covered by for any one or combination of the following, preventing the successful attaining of peace at talks the Arab PA members walked out of, settlements being built, settlements intended to be built, decisions not to demolish settlements, the existence of settlements (and here we need to define settlements because there are Arab settlements built illegally all over Judea, Samaria, the Galilee and the Negev but the United Nations and their ilk only mean places where Jews are residing), non-judicial executions which are self-defensive use of force resulting in the death of an attacker by any Israeli Jew be they police, IDF or armed citizens (we know how the United Nations feels about armed citizens and especially those who are actually using these weapons for their own or others’ defense) disproportional use of force (this simply translated to actual regular people language means that there are insufficient dead Jews as the United Nations has decided that Israel must be required to have equal or excess casualties as do the Arabs on any confrontation be it war in Gaza or Intifada in Israel). Then there is the Human Rights Commission which has in its bylaws a requirement to denounce Israel for the indignity of that day at the commencement of every session even before the main reason for meeting has been stated, it takes precedence over all other considerations and is done even of the session was called to address the Arab-Israeli conflict which will result in a release of a litany of condemnations of Israel and on the rarest of occasions a rebuke of Mahmoud Abbas or some other PA official but nothing consequential or actually harsh in it tone possibly even apologetic in nature as in we hate to have to do this but here is a slap on the wrist for something Israel would be facing the International Court of Justice. If the PA, Hamas, Iran, President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein, the former Jordanian Ambassador to the United nations and in the line of succession to be the next King of Jordan had their way there exists a better than average chance that Israel would be erased and all Jews placed on a spaceship heading into deep space with no discernible destination other than not Earth. What could possibly go wrong?

Abbas and the Trail of Tears To and From the United Nations

 

Mahmoud Abbas, the self-appointed Emperor of the Palestinians, has once again come to the United Nations sobbing his people’s story of woe and demanding that the United Nations immediately provide them with recognition of statehood and simultaneously demand Israel remove every trace of their existence, remove her security and military presence everywhere beyond the Green Line. He is also demanding the United Nations send forces to protect his ‘nation’ from Israeli aggressions. It is the same old demand being recycled demanding that the General Assembly insist that the Security Council set a deadline of one year for negotiations to be completed and a treaty reached between Israel and his Palestinian Authority settling the borders, responsibilities and whatever else such that a Palestinian State be set into motion or else the United Nations enforce his maximalist demands for a settlement on Israel. Again we have Abbas demanding Israel negotiate with a gun to their heads and grant him everything he demands or make offers which include bribes in order to get any form of compromise or else face international troops forcing Israel to surrender every last demand he can think to place upon the Israelis which starts with the surrender of all lands beyond the 1949 Armistice positions demarked and set which are known as the Green Line. That begs the question as to why Abbas or any of his criminal consortium would ever accept any offer when the result of refusing to negotiate in good faith would produce the world handing you everything you could legitimately desire by simply refusing any offer. This is his attempting to internationalize the entire imbroglio hoping to have the world impose his version of a peace treaty and further place troops along the border to protect his launching of missiles into Israel all the while demanding Israel now surrender the remaining lands he claims from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. This is Mahmoud Abbas’s idea and perception of ending the occupation, but is he correct.

 

 

Abbas Asking as Politely as He is Capable

Abbas Asking as Politely as He is Capable
Arms Outstretched as if to Grab His Victim
And Strangle the Life Out of Them Slowly

 

 

The catch is that International Law does not necessarily abide by public opinions as Abbas is hoping he could force some court to decide in his favor that Israel is occupying lands which he claims belong to some Arab entity simply because the majority of the dictatorial regimes which comprise the General Assembly happen to also harbor anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli feelings and would grant Abbas and gang all of Israel as if their opinions amount to anything. The problem which Israel will very likely be facing is a concerted effort between Abbas and the Arab World, at least those still standing, and the organization of anti-Western World nations in the General Assembly in supporting his demands and also not receiving assistance from the United States in the form of their veto power in the Security Council. But even without the United States veto power there are four other nations with such power, Russia, China, Britain and France. Let us look at each one individually.

 

The first obvious one to consider would be those who by their nature would benefit from Israel being coerced into their camp would be Russia and especially if it would give Putin the opportunity of rubbing it in President Barack Hussein Obama’s face that Russia upheld the side of Zionism, Israel, and most Jews against the blatant deceits and deception which make up the machination of one Mahmoud Abbas. Should Putin actually persuade Israel to enter into the Russian orbit rather than that of the United States, Russia could gain some military and other advantages from the Israeli software and other scientific advances which may end up being shared by the two nations. Still, Russia would realize that any gains would be short lived as the United States is scheduled to have elections for a new President next year and the new President and their administration being formed and operating on all cylinders by March and thus then able to grab Israel back from Russian influences. Depending on the perceived sincerity of the United States President would necessarily need be measured before leaping at any opportunity as Israel has started to wane amongst even Jewish voters and as the remaining Israel supporters are Evangelical Christians who would never support a liberal Democrat candidate and thus would not really present a positive force for the Democrats should they retain the White House and be left with no real option other than supporting the Republican Party if they were to take the White House. This would necessarily mean that Russia would have little to gain outside of Israeli gratitude and the obligation of Israel sharing information about such things as terror threats or operations to take down Russian airliners or other threats. It would not be a complete surprise to learn that such is already a working part of some agreement between Russia and Israel though such would be kept as a very well-guarded secret.

 

Following this order we must now consider China. Almost everything said above about Russia goes double for China simply to be registered as a political coup over the United States. China may have further reasons to support Israel as the two are good trading partners. The one item China offers that would be beyond any Russian offer is that China is presumably ascendant and as such could offer a more enhanced set of future relations. China also has a larger middle class which is growing and will present a viable market as long as the economic bubbles in the Chinese economic picture do not explode in their faces causing a panic by the government and thus the stifling clamps coming down from on high of the Politbureau placing the suffocating conditions eventually always resulting from central control of an economy and over the markets which operate best with the least government interference as profit is one of the greatest motivators in life. Still, China would have a considerable plus in their developing consumer market well beyond anything the Russians would be able to provide.

 

Then there is Britain without whom much of this mess would not be necessary. That aside, the British government is currently leaning right and conservative but Israel is a very contentious issue within the British Isles. Any government supporting Israel over the Arab causes could face considerable losses at the polls and thus suffer greatly at the next set of elections. The British are also very dependent on oil from Saudi Arabia as well as other sources. Should it appear that supporting Israel would necessarily have a downside with the natural losses in the polls, it is doubtful that any British help is coming against such hints. Further, Britain does not have a history of being necessarily supportive of Israel or Jewish interests in general. Perhaps it was their singular moment of conscience which produced the Balfour Declaration as she has had little additional support for the Jewish State. Adding in their history which was derived largely by their administration of the British Mandate in such a manner as to support the Arab side in virtually all items where the British were not truly neutral, and it is because of this adherence to neutrality which would in times result in upholding sides in opposition to Jewish and Zionist interests. Still, Israel may be well served to work alongside the British in other areas having mutual interests. It all comes down to this, who can best provide for the future of Great Britain and her future. That very well could be the British as only time will tell.

 

That brings us to France who is right now rather seeing Israel in a much more favorable light than a month ago. The reason for the turning of France to side with Israel more closely would be better put as identifying with the Israeli position was the horrific terror strike which murdered one-hundred-twenty-nine with another three-hundred-fifty-two injured. This horrific carnage being launched at the seat of power that Paris, France has been and always will continue to be horrified peoples from all over the world though not so in the Arab world where candies and sweet cakes were handed out and people were dancing in the streets. The French are currently sensitive to the pressures Israel has faced daily for over sixty-five years. Additionally, the French government has turned to Israel for guidance and training their security forces to provide them with the kind of things to look for and what should not draw as much attention. Will this heightened state of sensitivity last? In one way, fortunately, no. People need to feel safe in their day-to-day lives or the society would grind slowly to a halt. So, yes, currently the French people are in an elevated state of awareness and more likely to identify with Israel, but that will not last and the question is what will come after? Will there existing residual bond between the French people and government with Israel? What new policies might come of this? And lastly, will this make for another Veto vote in the Security Council.

 

The end result is that unless some major power is planning on sending troops, even a Security Council Resolution replete with Chapter Seven authorizing for the use of force would not be appetizing as the troops would be facing off with the IDF which would not be an enticing offer even for the United States or other Western power. The situation would be unappetizing for the IDF as well, but they would defend the nation of Israel even if they may rue the day that such becomes necessary. There is one item that would need clarification, exactly what is the claim Abbas represents for which he demands United Nations support and troops? What documentation can he present? The problem Mahmoud Abbas would find is that there is an occupation and it is not the one he claims exists. One would hope he does not take the idea that Israel is an occupying power too seriously as it does not hold up on further scrutiny. Yes, we realize Mahmoud Abbas has reams and reams of General Assembly and NGO and nations’ intents to recognize Palestine which are all predicated on his arrival at an agreed upon border which they can recognize. Abbas is going to find things get a bit sticky and tangled. The problem is that without an actual border supported by international law, Abbas has no standing unless Israel grants him a standing, without a delineated and defined border he has nothing to demand as he would have no defined land upon which to be protected and no state by definition as put forth by the Treaty of Westphalia and the Montevideo Convention. These set the definition for a viable and recognizable state and the Palestinians have none of the requirements. Further, by the San Remo Convention, the Treaty of Sèvres, Israel has a defined border which with the Churchill White Paper Israel’s eastern border, the one Mahmoud Abbas claims to contend as under debate, is defined very clearly as the Jordan River. United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 is invalid and meaningless as it was rejected by the Arab league and rendered forever voided by the multi-nation assault on the State of Israel on the first day of her existence. In none of the wars Israel has endured to survive, none of them were with any nation called Palestine and if you wish a war between Palestine and Israel just keep pushing and that day will eventually come to be. Lastly, and potentially most important, there is an occupation going on in much of the lands known as Judea and Samaria and it is the so-called Palestinian population as they have no claim on the lands and are permitted to remain by the good graces and kindnesses of the Israeli government and peoples. You want a few questions you can answer which will clarify this point.

1) Who provides the water system for this area?
2) Who provides the electricity?
3) Who will be defending these areas when the Islamic State decides to cross the Jordan River?
4) Who holds treaties and international agreements which all come into play under Article 80 of the United Nations?
5) Who granted you the presumed claim to these lands?
6) Who did Jordan sign a treaty with to end any potential for a restarting of hostilities and at that time surrendered all claims to the lands Jordan refers to as the West Bank and Israel knows by the names of Judea and Samaria?
7) Before the Six Say War of 1967, what were these lands considered by every nations of the world with the exceptions of Britain and Pakistan?
8) Since the land was illegally occupied, if Jordan ever were to have granted their claims to these lands to some PLO, what makes them legally claimed then by anybody other than the liberating power?
9) You claim Israel is an Apartheid State yet there are Arabs in the Knesset and as sitting judges and even Ambassadors for Israel while you insist that any lands you hold be free of Jews and uncomfortable and soon to be just as unaccommodating for Christians, so who are the real Apartheid system?
10) Do you have any questions?

The truth is obvious and the unfortunate thing is the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), and any other names the leaders of the kleptocracy which demands your children be sacrificed for the better good of the society, just as the worshippers of Baal sacrificed their subject’s children to their idolatrous god for the good of society, has the world really devolved that much? Such a realization is so saddening that it robs us of worlds to describe such a situation. As Jews we had hoped that there would be no more Amalekites after the Third Reich and their successor for subjugating their society but now we know there is another daemon needing to be struck down for the evil it oozes and contaminates all it touches. The time is near when the people of Israel will have had all the murders and injured innocents and finally correct that horrific mistake made by General Moshe Dayan when he allowed the Waqf to remain in place as he mistakenly took the Waqf and the rest of the vile serpents for actual caring, loving and open-minded individual human beings, we now know better. The thing that the Israelis will ultimately find most detestable about the Palestinian Arabs is that you sacrificed your future, your children and your legitimacy for nothing as at any time you could have had your so-called state, in 1948 and any time since either from Jordan pre June 1967 and Israel afterwards had you been at all reasonable.

 

 

Ba’al is hungry for your sacrifice Who will be the Fortunate Child to Shield the Vulnerable Soldier the Special Child to be Gifted to Ba’al So the Tribe Can Receive the Bounties Promised by Ba’al For Your Small Children Sacrificed

Ba’al is hungry for your sacrifice
Who will be the Fortunate Child to
Shield the Vulnerable Soldier the
Special Child to be Gifted to Ba’al
So the Tribe Can Receive the Bounties
Promised by Ba’al For Your
Small Children Sacrificed

 

 

When children are sacrificed for the better good of the society be it with murderous suicide belts, sent with knives to stab people until stopped, used as a human berm from which to fire, be they locked on rooftops to prevent bombings, when gathered around rocket launchers as protection, simply using their corpses as your media assault on your enemy or given the plastic key to paradise, wrapped tightly in a blanket and then sent to walk across minefields in order to clear it for your troops or any other high-risk likely fatal attack simply for propaganda or to save troops at children’s lives is as if you sacrificed children to Ba’al to please an angry god in order to get rain for your crops.

 

In conclusion; I guess it is difficult to be reasonable when you do not so much desire your own state; you want our state destroyed, Never Again! You do not desire a future for your peoples, you desire an end to my people as well, Never Again! You do not desire an equal balance of sharing and living in peace because you want only death and if you cannot murder every Jew then you sacrifice your young and old alike in the pursuit of murdering every Jew, Never Again! Just in case you missed it, let me make our position clear, Never Again! Never Again! And Never Again!
