Lamenting the Palestinian Lack of Statehood

 

Two world leaders have come out recently lamenting their failure to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Their words, or the way my ears heard and eyes read their statements made me feel they were more lamenting the lack of a Palestinian State and the fact they were unable to diminish Israel greatly, if not completely, in the making of such a state. Of course the two were President Obama and Secretary General Ban ki-Moon. As we have beaten President Obama’s anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic feelings to such an extent as to make a bronze statue to the man, let us instead play with the soon to be ex-Secretary General’s statements and the lack of validity or value in them. Actually one almost has to feel for the man, who had ruled through a decade of opening auditory lamentations against Israel at opening ceremonies for the General Assembly, ten years of “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” and the complete series of Durban World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance which could also have been called the let’s pretend that Israel is the cause of all the world’s problems from hunger to lack of water to the endlessly revolving around the sun going nowhere conferences. Still, the poor man from South Korea is listing the inability to form a Palestinian state as the main failure of his time at the United Nations and not the complete meltdown of the Middle East, the loss of two nations, Syria and Libya, into roiling cauldrons of suffering and death, and the rise of anti-Semitism worldwide to epidemic levels and the beginning stages of destabilization of near the entirety of Europe all accomplished with the inept leadership, or lack thereof, of the United States and most of Europe where liberal progressivism has run unchecked all but succeeding in their aim to end borders and encourage loss of definition of the word nation. Actually, the decline of Europe may be seen as credit to his ability to actually accomplish some great achievement during his decade as Secretary General. Well, we all should vie to feel good about ourselves and see something as an accomplishment even if it may mean the end of civilization as we know and define it.

 

Secretary General Ban ki-Moon stated, “It has strengthened radicals and weakened moderates on both sides. Making matters worse is a dangerous vacuum within the international community as crises elsewhere claim the attention of world leaders.” Imagine the chutzpah of the man stating the obvious that there exist “crises elsewhere claim the attention of world leaders” and finding that a deficiency as it will establish “a dangerous vacuum within the international community” in which Israel skates free from the constant pounding he must feel they deserve for not committing suicide at his behest. Ban ki-Moon’s self-flagellation came on cue at the United Nation’s annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” held every November 29th which just happens to actually be the day when the partition for the formation of Israel was decided, the even division of the lands between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea granting the Arabs the choice lands and giving Israel lands consisting of over two-thirds being Negev Desert yet still the Arab League refused the settlement and instead made plans to invade Israel on the very morning of her independence. That day, Israeli Independence Day and the first day of the initial war to annihilate the Jewish State which took two years to fail, though it did manage to wrest the lands of Gaza, Judea and Samaria (Gaza and West Bank by Jordanian naming), was also renamed by the Arabs as Naqba Day, the day they failed to murder the Jewish homelands. The Arabs should thank Israel and the Jews as we have given them two of the Palestinian Arabs biggest holidays, Naqba Day and United Nation’s annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” But let us get into the minutia of these supposed failures.

Ban ki-Moon and all the Palestinian Arabs and their multitudes of supporters from around the world and loudest on Europe, well, next to the flame fanning by the Palestinian Arabs themselves (especially recently but it finally rained) all could have at any point followed through on their desires to force the issue and bring everything before the World Court for final arbitration and let the best side win. Of course they would never think of holding a factual and legal hearing for reaching a decision knowing that their lies play so much better in the world media and across the many platforms where the world stage is carried out. Demanding the destruction of the Jews is the longest running show on the world’s stage and yet such has never succeeded, but not for lack of trying. The world need understand that Israel is going nowhere as we are here to stay, period, end of discussion. But if you insist, please do take your show before the World Court and plead your case. You can invite Mahmoud Abbas and his cohort of criminals who have made a business of robbing their subjects blind squirrelling away billions of dollars and Euros, the Arab League, leaders from Europe and around the world and give each their hour on the stage to conduct their version of events, promises and that which must be because they wish it and then Israel will simple, silently present her case using actual documents. The first document will be the San Remo Resolution followed by the Treaty of Sèvres and the Treaty of Lausanne all topped off by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which states that the Mandate System set up by these previous treaties will be enforced and recognized by the United Nations as will all treaties made under the authority of the League of Nations. But we understand that it is far more satisfying deriding the Jewish State day in and day out than it is actually living up to promises and solving the problem that just keeps on giving. How else would the world bodies and leaders dump on Israel if there were no evil designs to accuse the Jews of having committed?

 

The favorite statements are the ones where the claim is that the Palestinians only desire the lands gained by Israel resulting from their defending themselves from Jordanian invasion where Israel liberated the lands occupied by Jordan for the nineteen years since the 1948 War to exterminate the Jewish State which should have been the end of any discussion. This is the lie and every last political charlatan tells ad-nauseum to the point that this particular Big Goebbelsian Lie has become accepted fact, but it will never stand up to close scrutiny which is why the plight of the Arab Palestinians will never be taken before an actual tribunal. Mahmoud Abbas has stated repeatedly, as had Yasser Arafat before him, that the Arabs will never recognize Israel as the State for the Jewish People. This is simply his repeating the findings of the Khartoum Resolution which included the “Three No’s”: “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The truth of the intentions of the Palestinian Arab leadership now, past and future can be interpreted from the textbooks with which they train their children for total war against Israel and the Jews and steep them in a continual immersion of hatreds and fill them with lies. But please do not take our word for this and instead take some time at your leisure and read a concise report which includes actual copies of lessons and other important inclusions in these texts named A 25 Page Exec Summary: Jews and the Jewish State in Schoolbooks Used by UNRWA: De-legitimization, Demonization and Indoctrination to War.

 

There is one final set of refutations which need be presented. The first is the numbers of refugees. From 1948 through 1967 the total number of Arabs who became refugees, many simply leaving on their own volition and at the behest of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini (Arabic: محمد أمين الحسيني‎‎) who promised them that Israel would be destroyed by the invading armies from at least a half dozen Arab nations within a few days of their 1948 invasion intended as a genocide of the Jews and they would gain a share of all the Jew’s treasures, came out slightly under one-million and the number of Jews becoming refugees thrown from their homelands in Arab and Muslim lands where many of their families had resided for hundreds if not over a thousand years (not including those from Europe after World War II who are a different almost one-million) also totaled just under one-million thus nearly equal (there were approximately seventy-five-thousand to as much as two-hundred-thousand more Jews but about the same numbers resettled in Israel as there were Arabs losing their lands for numerous reasons). The difference is Israel welcomed their brothers and sisters to Israel and settled them and they and their families live productive lives as full citizens of Israel as do the Arabs who either remained or managed after the 1948-9 war returned to their lands within Israel escaping attempts to lock them away as political weapons in refugee camps by their Arab brothers and sisters. Then the Arab League demanded a separate entity to care for the Arab refugees and their own rules which allowed for the refugee status to become a caste label passing from parent to child on from generation to generation forever. Had the Arabs cared as much for their fellow Arabs as much as the Jews did for their fellow Jews there would have been no refugee situation. On the other hand, had the Israelis done as the Arabs had with their fellow Arabs there would likely be just as many Jews as refugees today as there are Palestinian Arab refugees.

 

There are other lies told and accepted around the world. The next biggest is that Israel is carrying out a war of extermination, a genocide against the Palestinian Arabs. How the numbers of Palestinian Arabs went from under one million to approximately five to as high as seven and a half million while being exterminated by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) begs the question of how such could happen. Is the IDF really that incompetent that there are five to ten times as many Palestinian Arabs today as their were in 1948 despite the supposed attempts by Israel to wipe them out. Trust there is absolutely no plan to murder Palestinian Arabs as a whole except to defend Israel and Israelis from assaults by terrorists. There is also the claim that the Arabs have not been permitted to vote in Israeli elections. This is both a falsehood and misdirection. The Arabs who reside in Israel are Israeli citizens and are permitted full rights including the vote and there are Arab Israelis elected to the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. The Palestinian Arabs have not had an election since 2005 as in Gaza Hamas rules in a dictatorial manner and will not permit elections for fear of losing their hold to Islamic Jihad, Fatah or other forces and in Judea and Samaria Fatah has refused under Mahmoud Abbas to hold elections as they also fear losing power. One has to remember that Mahmoud Abbas is President of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Chairman of the Fatah Party and also the Chairman of the PLO and only permits election in the Fatah Party by the Executives who are all Abbas appointees thus guaranteeing his being renamed as Chairman and refuses to risk his other positions. So, one might ask why the Palestinian Arabs are not voting in Israeli elections. The answer is simply, they are not Israeli citizens but PA citizens residing in a semiautonomous area within Israel having their own form of self-government. Allowing them to vote in Israeli elections would be the same as permitting Canadians vote in the United States elections because they reside in North America too. Further, has the PA desired to actually have a state they were offered 94% of the West Bank, half of Jerusalem and all of Gaza by Ehud Barak in 2001 at the Taba Summit which were the culmination of almost three years of negotiations which finally failed and then a similar offer was proffered by Ehud Olmert in 2007 which was also rebuffed by Abbas et al and thus could have had their state simply by agreeing with these which have been the most generous offers to date. The main reasons that Abbas has refused these offers for a Palestinian Arab state is simply, he also demands that between five and eight million Arab refugees be permitted to take up residence not in their Palestinian state but in Israel with full citizenship and financial assistance in order to make reparations for their refugee status and suffering at the hands of their fellow Arabs. What many people are unaware of is that there is a large Palestinian refugee camp outside Gaza City and another outside Nablus, the PA operational capital city. Both of these camps like the others separate Arabs from Arabs with those outside the barbed wire free citizens while those inside the barbed wire are refugees. In all too many cases there are members of the same family residing on opposite sides of the barbed wire with one part free and the other heavily guarded as they are held by fellow Arabs as a weapon with which to destroy Israel, the real target of every Palestinian Arab policy. Their desire for a state is for the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and once they have destroyed Israel and genocidally murdered every Jew, then the land will likely be turned back to wildlands such as those visited by Sam Clemens in 1887 before the British began importing Arabs in numbers to prevent a Jewish majority population coming into fruition allowing for the formation of Israel.

The final item is how best to solve this situation with the least amount of upheaval and ending the continued and ever more dangerous violence due to terrorism and rockets raining down on Israeli towns, cities, kibbutzim and other civilian areas. The fastest and likely most likely to succeed would be for Israel to annex all of Judea and Samaria setting up a semi-autonomous area where the Arabs who desire independence from Israeli rule would elect their own governance but without an actual state. Those wishing not to live within Israel should be free to find some place they would feel more comfortable and Israel provide for a period fiscal assistance which could be utilized to resettle with an understanding that acceptance of the financial assistance would preclude their ever returning to reside in Israel. Those Arabs residing within the autonomous zone but preferring to become Israeli full citizens would be required to go through a set of courses and prove proficiency with those teachings and need sign a loyalty oath. They should have been known to them that should any member of their family ever aid terrorism in any form they would lose their citizenship permanently and potentially face deportation. Anyone committing or aiding the commission of a terrorist act would subject their family to a hearing where it would be determined how many would face deportation for knowing of the attack and not preventing said attack. Israel would review all materials used in classrooms and schooling and curriculum would be required to have the same standards for subjects as are demanded of all Israeli schools. Israeli history with its Zionist roots and the British manipulations of the situation would be taught as is in other Israeli schools. The same matriculation exams would be given with the same expectations for student accomplishment would be used for graduation and all other uses as in Israeli schools. Those Arabs preferring to reside as a citizen in the semiautonomous zone would vote in Arab elections and forgo voting rights in Israeli elections. All would be granted voting rights for the city within which they reside as well as any community governance. Only Israeli citizens would be permitted the vote in national Israeli elections just as only citizens of the semiautonomous zone would be permitted the vote in their general elections. All residents within the Israeli lands would be held to comply with Israeli laws and would be tried in Israeli courts for any breach of Israeli law. The semiautonomous zone could also set up their own courts for only those citizens of their semiautonomous region. Any legal difference between a citizen of Israel and citizen of the semiautonomous zone will be heard in an Israeli court of law and by the law. Finally, Areas A and B could come under the control of the semiautonomous zone while the bulk of Area C will remain an integral part of Israel (see map above).

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.

The World Has Chosen, Have You?

 

The European Union has decided to instruct and advise the member states that they have decided that Israeli residents in Judea and Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights must mark their goods as being unacceptable Jewish wares. There are many who see this, which some European Union Ministers have suggested in discussions, as simply anti-Semitic actions and only the first step towards a complete boycott of all Israeli goods (but not technology advances, medical discoveries, new medical procedures, new drugs, agricultural advances even those used to grow better and higher quality yields from grape vines and orchards which can only be tested largely in the ‘forbidden areas’ as that is where the majority of such crops are grown, and any other discovery which would prove to be highly productive and enhance life within Europe). The initial signs from Europe show some signs of promise and blowback as Czech Republic, Greece and Hungary have or are considering and assured of approving measures which would exempt them from this so totally obviously discriminant, criminally offensive and unparallelingly odious singling-out of Israel over all the other even more loathsome occupations such as China of Tibet which has included mass transfers of Tibetans from their lands and Chinese from their lands into Tibet in an attempt to destroy Tibetan culture and erase Tibetan history, the occupation of Western Sahara, by Morocco, areas occupied by Islamist extremists of Mali, Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Chad and beyond into central Africa and ignoring the European history and wars fought over occupations of Alsace-Lorraine alternately by France and Germany, the occupation of the Sudetenlands of Northern Czechoslovakia and the conflicts in the Balkans. This European Union blatant move grounded in old hatreds and spite done solely to damage the one and only Jewish State of Israel deciding disputed ownership where the Israeli claim is backed by over three-thousand years of Jewish/Israelite rule and two millennia of yearning and the forever cherished dream of next year in Jerusalem and close to five thousand years of Jews living as a majority or minimally plurality population in Jerusalem and then there is the greatest of all proofs that the land belongs to the Jewish People which Europeans refuse to even admit is a possibility. What is that? It is the proof that every single empire which held the Promised Lands was completely unable to force the land to yield crops or anything of worth unless they allowed the Jews to work the lands and they worked the Jews through burdensome taxes at usury levels. The land always gave forth when the Jews, the lands’ promised People, worked the lands, the Promised Lands for the chosen people, as each was promised for the other and made the perfect combination. The final proof that now, when energy has become almost as precious and needful and Israel is being singled out to the extent they must rely solely on themselves, are there huge finds of natural gas just offshore from Tel Aviv and Haifa and oil finds in the northeastern Negev and possible finds near the Golan Heights (inside Green Line which the EU finds so defining) such that Israel will not be left wanting. The European Union would want you to believe that the Old City of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, Shechem where the Tabernacle was first built, Hevron where the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of Judaism are buried, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah in the Cave of Machpelah (Hebrew: מערת המכפלה); also known as the Cave of the Patriarchs, Joseph’s Tomb (Hebrew: קבר יוסף‎) just outside of Shechem and Rachel’s Tomb (Hebrew: קבר רחל‎) just outside Bethlehem have absolutely no record of being Jewish or Israelite whatsoever. My guess is when they became secular leftists their knowledge of the Bible vacated their brains along with almost all scientific and mathematic knowledge, especially the discipline of use of logic.

 

How much more proof is needed? Well, if you’re a Minister in the European Union Parliament your answer was likely there could never be sufficient proof. But just in case, allow us to also give some legal arguments which would be presentable and valid in any International Court worthy of such a title. The British can start with their initial promise of the Balfour Declaration which is a very important document with exact wording. Then there came the San Remo Conference attended by Great Britain, France, Italy, and Japan with the United States as a neutral observer, was held in San Remo, Italy, in April 1920 where the Balfour Declaration was formally recognized and codified into the British Mandate which led to the relegating of the lands west of the Jordan River for the Jewish State which became Israel and the lands east of the Jordan River, the majority of the lands (78%), reserved for an Arab State which became Transjordan and later renamed simply Jordan. The First Conference of London of February 1920 and the San Remo Resolution adopted on 25 April 1920 incorporated the Balfour Declaration of 1917 along with Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations which were used as the basic documents upon which the British Mandate for Palestine was constructed.

The San Remo Conference was accepted and incorporated into the Treaty which also abolished the Ottoman Empire, obliging Turkey to renounce all rights over Arab Asia and North Africa. Treaty of Sèvres was replaced in 1923 by the Treaty of Lausanne, which voided previous Allied demands for Kurdish autonomy and Armenian independence but did otherwise recognize Turkey’s current boundaries and had no other effects on the Treaty of Sèvres and thus the San Remo Conference Mandates remained as originally laid out. This all leads to the most recent legal and binding act when five months after the cessation of hostilities, at least in the Middle East as we are willing to bet a fair amount of hostilities ensued at Turtle Bay in New York City as the Security Council of the United Nations hammered out the precise wording of UNSC Res 242 which, contrary to the brilliant minds in the European Union could see, does not require that Israel return all Lands, the Lands or anything beyond just Lands. Israel more than met expectations when she returned all of the Sinai Peninsula and even offered Gaza which Egypt thought would be a better headache for Israel than for Egypt though currently it is rather difficult to tell. Thus far all the individuals leaving Gaza that have died either from bomb belts exploding or targeted fun fire have all been armed in some manner while this past week the Egyptians repeatedly shot while dead and alive and nude man who was mentally unstable to say the least crossing from Hamas into Egypt wading across in the Mediterranean. We decided not to include the video from an Arabic news station but a video exists for those who wish to bother looking for it. Israel even offered to return Judea and Samaria to Jordan but Jordan refused when they and Israel made their peace agreement. Further, as far as the need for another Arab state called Palestine, why did the Arab League not accept the United Nations offer in UN General Assembly Res 181 from November 29, 1947 and establish it then or even have established such a state for the nineteen years when Jordan occupied the very lands they demand today. Why is it only necessary to make this additional Arab state only because the Jews, Israel, now had repossessed the lands that are Israeli under international law and only were held by Jordan as an occupying power and nobody said a peep when the Jordanians forced the Jews living in the areas they occupied to vacate their lands and homes which were then given to Arabs by the Jordanians, now that is a crime according to international laws but as they were Jews it did not register? It was exactly like the founding of Israel and the ensuing process across the Arab and Muslim world to chase almost a million Jews from their ancestral homes in these lands where many had resided since the Roman dispersal with most ending up in Israel but never in a refugee camp left to languish for decade upon decade as have the Palestinian Arabs. There are Arab Palestinian refugee camps outside Gaza City and near Nablus and throughout Gaza and the west Bank but their own fellow Arab Palestinians refuse to receive them and allow them a normal life because they are a weapon against the Jews and Israel. Enough with the double standards and look it up and it is plain as we explained above, Israel liberated the lands west of the Jordan River, not occupied them. That truth alone negates all Arab Palestinian claims to the lands. They are welcome to reside peacefully on the lands and practice their religion as long as doing so does not include murdering Israelis at every opportunity, as that will never be tolerated as Jews will not die needlessly because somebody claims the Jews stole their land. If the Jews stole their land then what in all that are holy is their houses and farm lands if not that their lands have not been stolen as the Jordanians stole Jewish land in 1948-9. If there are Palestinians who really desire their own land in a nice airconditioned community may we make a suggestion? Just go on the Haj next year and make sure to arrive in time to claim sufficient accommodations at the location pictured below, it is Arab land, airconditioned accommodations and the electricity is free, that’s even better than they have now as there is not any kleptomaniacs pretending to be elected officials governing the area and stealing well over half of the billions upon billions if not trillions of dollars and euros coming from Europe and the United States and United Nations. The neighborhood is almost perfect as each resident has identical residences et. al.

As may be obvious by now, there exists sufficient evidence stemming from the Treaty of Sèvres which was signed by the ruling entity from the defeated Ottoman Empire and from subsequent agreements with the Arab League from between the end of World War I on through the roaring twenties (the 1920’s for those too young to have been told) all of which respected the Mandate system which included the French, British, Italian and briefly Russian Mandates which included the recognition that a Jewish State was part of the framework. If the Arabs chose to believe the British that they could and would prevent the founding of a Jewish State just as the Jews believed the British when they promised they would guarantee on the Crown of the British Empire that all lands west of the Jordan River would remain sacrosanct for all time, then we both have learned a new useless lesson. The evidence for the Jewish State, call it Israel or Eretz Yisroel; either way it is the homeland of the Jewish People and as Israel has proven by bringing home some of the lost tribes such as the Menashe from India and the Ethiopian Jews and others as they have been located, it truly is the homeland for all the Jews who desire to make it so. With the troubles in so much of the world and the increasing anti-Semitism, both on a person to person level and on a national level where national parties and politicians and even nations have chosen to be against Israel and to make of Yerushalayim a burdensome stone and in the end they will back themselves to pieces against that rock as it is a rock that will not crack nor will it move or give in any way.

 

That leads us back to the presumed theme of the article. The evidence is indisputable unless one adopts willful blindness and simply refuses to see all that can be placed before their eyes. There will always be those who will reject the idea of a Jewish state because to them the Jews must be a people without a land living at the mercy of others, often the mercy of the very people who would deny the Jews their own state. These people have based their entire religious beliefs, national relevance and history, based something so vital that they choose to deny the Jews the rights they would petition governments, demonstrate before world bodies and move Heaven and Earth to make a land for others, just not the Jews. The entire Arab Palestine movement with their chant of “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea Palestine must be free,” is a display of their desire to replace the Jewish State of Israel with another Arab state as it is all about destroying the Jewish State and not about the future fortunes of the Arab Palestinians. The leadership of the Palestinian Arabs know full well that should they be granted complete independence instead of their current semiautonomous governance where they would have election every four or five years if only Mahmoud Abbas would allow elections as it has been Abbas and his band of merry kleptomaniacs who have refused every offer even after making demands known once to President Bill Clinton and then had to flee in a panic as Israeli Prime Minister Olmert accepted the terms as relayed by President Clinton from Yasser Arafat. In the end the Jews will be the final arbiters of their fate and as such it is required that they retain the majority of Judea and Samaria and should retain all of the lands under their dominion. This would never mean that a single Arab would lose his or her land, home, business unless Israel were to offer each a stipend and generous compensatory buy-out program where Arabs and other minorities who would choose to move and start a new life elsewhere would receive in addition to the above another severance from the lands of Israel bonus with additional payout for each member of their household who desires to join them on their travel to a new land with the only stipulation than they never return to reside in Israel permanently and renouncing any claim to citizenship from Israel. Other than such as long as they and their family remain free of terror activities their life could improve and grow along with every other resident of Israel, but for such to start there need be three things. First is the rejection of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah Party, Palestinian Liberation Organization, or any other terror or nationalist movement which intends to replace or divide the lands making a new land within the Israeli border. Second would be deciding if they would prefer to go through a multi-step procedure to gain full Israeli citizenship or remain as an alien resident still under Israeli law but not eligible to vote but free to pursue other national citizenship. Third accept that any terrorist act carried out by anybody residing in your household with or without your knowledge could and likely would result in the expulsion of your entire family with a nominal stipend and buy-out of your property with forfeiture of any right to return within Israeli borders even to visit without first attaining a special waver from the government of Israel.

 

What is sad is that any nation would need to resort to such lengths in order to protect its residents and that any nations would condemn a nation for protecting their right as a nation to exist and to do so free from saboteurs and terrorists and taking the necessary safeguards to keep their people safe. The question people need to answer for themselves and not for Israel or for the Jews but for themselves is whether they will deny Jews the right to have a homeland just as do the Chinese, Japanese, French, British, Russians and twenty plus nations if you are an Arab. What is ridiculous at the highest magnitude is that a people of a faith which is one of if not the oldest religion still practiced under the same laws as they first established in the Torah and having finally returned to their homeland from antiquity before history, modern history, who had faced a dispersion at the hands of the Roman empire which was their method of destroying a peoples and was the fate of the Carthaginians who if not for Hannibal and the crossing of the Alps and great battles and wars with Rome which recorded these battles to recount their glorious exploits but other than in a history book, have you ever met a Carthaginian? The Jews survived the most drastic of punishments and banishments any people could suffer and are the only ones to remain a people and all because of one thing, Torah and its laws and traditions. It also helped that the Jews had almost three-thousand years as a people in the Middle East and the kind of identity that simply refused to die. So, will you choose to be with a people who have already defied history and proven there are miracles and Hashem does still live and has a vested interest in the actions of humankind and done so with a quiet modesty of those whose faith is stronger than all the forces which have risen against them only to perish after their short but boisterous rampage or with the much louder trumpets which will fall silent after their cacophonous fury lasts but a fleeting moment when compared to the history of the Jews. The Czech Republic, Greece and Hungary are choosing to side with Israel against the European Union, where will you decide to fall as this time once again the world gets to choose their fate before the furies of perdition come to claim their victims, those who chose poorly?
