Trump Transition, President Obama and Israel

 

Just as President elect Donald Trump and his transition team will need to formulate a Middle East and North Africa (MENA) policy approach, intent and set goals as part and parcel of an entirely Trump’s American view of the world and Israel too need prepare to work with the President elect and on into the Trump first one hundred days teams, both also will necessitate a joint approach in preventing or having the means of mitigating any further actions which President Obama may plan or execute which would further poison the waters and lands of the MENA neighborhood. Making sure that President Obama makes the transition to the Trump Presidency as smooth and trouble-free as is humanly possible, especially when it comes to foreign policies must be an emphasis made understood by the current White House team. Such a message need be backed by the majority leaders currently in place, and any future one if there is a change in the works, visibly by letter to whatever means is required, even going to the media with a demand to be part of any Obama moves in the greater arena of world politics, particularly at the United Nations. As far as Israel is concerned, they are not out of the woods yet but they can see the break in the trees and the fields and a return from exile ahead. Still, they are in the woods and dangers are always lurking even this close to having survived. This is why Israel need setup an interface with Transition Team Trump through which they can give Trump and his MENA advisors any intelligence required to fill in the gaps which may exist. This line of communication must also advise Trump and his Transition Team of any rumored moves which President Obama appears ready to make particularly when it comes to Israel directly. Further, Israel need be informed of exactly where a Trump Presidency sees Israel and to attempt to sway their positions to a more friendly and giving future by making them aware of what Israel would prefer to see vis-à-vis Israeli freedoms to act in the coming years.

 

All of this means that the leadership of Israel absolutely must get their act together fast and iron out their intents and expectation for a Trump White House and establish solid, direct and cordial relations with fast, easy and accurate communications between Jerusalem and Washington D. C. which will make as sure as possible that Jerusalem is in the loop and understands what may be expected from them to reach any and all mutual goals. This especially refers to the first hundred days committee who need understand any necessary requirements vis-à-vis Israel particularly such that these requirements are built into the MENA policies as a whole going forward. Still, Israel need be concerned right up until President Trump officially takes control over all White House functions. Donald Trump must be made aware that it is imperative that he name his expected Ambassador to the United Nations and to Israel and have each head the transition thus being able to advise concerning the expectations for no further damage be done anywhere on the globe by team Obama in their final two months. It would also be in the future’s favor as should be envisioned by Israeli leadership to communicate with President elect Trump exactly what Israel would like to include with action on the front lines such that there is a smooth and amiable relationship in actions and hopes going forward. This is the best time for Israel to act responsibly and with targeted goals set in their sites and actually to act to accomplish their stated goals. This will require Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to understand what an opportunity Hashem has placed before him. This is a sign that our prayers, those of Jews and Zionists around the world, have been answered and relief from the recent tyrannical acts which Israel and her friends have had to endure. This begs the question as to what are the greatest desires of the Zionist camp and how can these be best provided to Team Trump and be validated by the Israeli leadership. What is potentially sad is that arranging the participation and backing of such an agenda by the Israeli leadership will probably be the most difficult part of the path. Israeli leaders need to lead this new line of actions choosing carefully how to communicate and be heard in truth by the people with whom they are tasked to deal. The Israeli liaison team need be given an Israeli wish list for the first two-hundred day plan, if for no other reason than to indicate that Israel will not likely to be found sitting idly about and not ready and willing to press the frontiers of what is possible. Such is the onus upon Israeli leadership as there is not likely to come a more opportune time for realizing the Zionist dreams as a whole and complete Israel as originally promised in the Balfour Declaration and further ratified by the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Lausanne and set in stone by the, Treaty of Sèvres (see map below). Backed by these treaties and their affects upon established International Law and further confirmed applicable by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, any Israeli team has sufficient backing to invalidate any claim for an independent Arab state further encroaching on lands promised the Zionists and set in stone by the entirety of world leadership as a whole.

This time is the time when Israel not only needs but must act, imperatively so, and for what we Zionists were promised by a world set on restoring native homelands to their rightful owners who resided and had the reigning cultures present before Grecian, Roman, Byzantine and finally Islamic Jihadist Arabs denying and enslaving native populations taking what were then simply the spoils of conquest. The Ottoman Empire, the final form of the Caliphate, was to survive a million, two million, indefinitely into the future for all time expanding to impose Islamic law and rule over all the Earth was instead humbled and conquered by the Allied powers and thus was then capable of being returned to its indigenous owners or granted freedom to rule themselves. In the areas west of the Jordan River was an expanse of lands which remained uncultivated, devoid of irrigation and fresh water so sparsely populated that travelers wrote of the empty lands where people could ride for a day and meet but a few wandering people and perhaps a flock of goats, nothing more. Jerusalem was described as a ghost town except for its population of Jews who were ambitious sort unlike the others who appeared to depend on the kindnesses of the rare travelers for their fare which their outstretched hands appeared to demand. It was this barren and rocky landscape with the south consumed by the Negev Desert that the Jewish State was to be established while east of the Jordan under the rule of the Hashemite Dynasty the Arab State of Transjordan (today simply Jordan) many times the size was designed to be built. The proper time for the Israelis to finally and permanently claim all the lands promised them is now setting up everything as a part of the first hundred days. All that is actually required from President Trump is his recognition of Israeli claims and borders and to make good immediately on his pledge to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, even to western areas of Jerusalem though placing the United States Embassy to Israel in the Old City would carry significant meaning and be a very constructive move.

 

The main onus though, is upon the leadership of Israel. The requirement is for the leadership to, imagine this, lead. We understand that this is a new experience for them but it is of vital importance that this opportunity not only be grasped but ridden hard to forge everything which the Israeli people desire and to finally assure that all of Israel be made whole and under a singular governance. Anyone reading the Mandate System and the treaties mentioned above will immediately realize is all of these treaties and agreement include within them references or direct phrases demanding that the Jewish State protect and defend the property rights of those residing in the lands, the religious rights and grant these people a form of resident legalities which was to respect all their human rights but they were not necessarily to be granted political rights, they were not granted any right to self-rule in their own state or the right to vote in Israeli elections unless granted citizenship via whatever means the Jewish State would set. That understood, Israel could mitigate their not receiving a state of their own, could still set a semiautonomous region where the existing would be permitted local rule in each district but not permitted to partake in national elections until fully vetted and having passed a course preparing them for citizenship, and then each application would need to be given an interview and then be considered whether to grant them citizen status. Such an allowance for specific self-rule would be a first such arrangement for a newly established nation and Israel will also be within their rights to deport anybody who is tied to terrorist activities and disallow their reentry ever, period and end of that story. Whatever Israel believes is in their best and final interest is exactly what must now become the government’s reason d’etre. This is the time for action and not simply dreaming as this is that moment that those dreams can be realized.

 

Transition times have proven to be Israel’s time of misfortune in the past as the Islamic forces from the numerous and varied nation all demand that Israel be impeded and prevented from reaching any final deal in which Israel is permitted to continue as a Jewish state as their designs are for Israel to be subsumed by the Arabs who surround them. These nations operate under the concept that anywhere that an Arab or Muslim had trodden is and must forever remain a holy Islamic state where Arabs rule with absolute power and all non-Muslims reside as Dhimmi until the day when they will be demanded to convert or die, and both is not ruled out. This has been the demand actually made by the Arab Palestinians which is easily verifiable, just check the maps incorporated in their geography and history books and the truth becomes plainly evident (see images below). The means by which the Arab Muslims plan on destroying Israel can be divided between two approaches, direct and indirect. The direct approach is obvious, gain as much land as possible, increase terrorism and rocket firing and should Israel respond simply claim it would all end if Israel just return some area which is claimed to have been stolen. Repeat this and take Israel apart one piece at a time. The indirect method relies on inundating Israel with five to eight million so-called refugees of Apartheid. This claim of being dispossessed by Israel is as false as can be as over 90% of the refugees have never even seen Israel except on a map and certainly have never set foot on the lands they claim. Only, from amongst all the refugee populations of the world, is the status of refugee handed down generation to generation. Only the Arab refugees under UNRWA forbidden from taking on any other citizenship as they are to be denied peoplehood only if used to destroy Israeli democracy by inundating the tiny nation with sufficient refugees who will demand to vote Israel into an Arab state after which the Jews will need flee or be wiped from the face of the earth. That is the plan in a nutshell. What makes all of this so absurd is that the gest as well as the vast majority of these “Palestinian refugee camps” are located within areas under Hamas (Gaza City and other camps) rule or Palestinian Authority (PA) rule and many have relatives who reside within the towns in which the camp resides and the two sides of the family are kept separated just to destroy Israel. For this reason as their numbers grew from approximately six-hundred-fifty-thousand to seven-hundred-thousand refugees to today over five millions, a seven fold increase, these Arabs have been kept in camps which are actually apartment buildings very similar to those outside the camp with the main difference being the side of the barbed wire fencing they were built and the lack of opportunity for those within the barbed wire held there by Arab guards imprisoned by their fellow Arabs.

Meanwhile, the nearly eight-hundred-thousand Jews expelled from Arab lands and almost all came to Israel make up half the population and have played an intricate part in Making Israel all she is today. There is also an Arab population in Israel comprising approximately twenty percent who trace their parentage back to those Arabs who remained and chose to become Israelis rather than run and join the Mufti’s ill-fated army. These Arabs are full citizens, vote, worship, work, drive, play and live as they please. There are Israeli Arabs in the government both elected to the Knesset (Parliament) as well as working in the government offices. They are judges, physicians, lawyers, businesspeople, sheepherders, truck drivers, entrepreneurs, mayors, police, firefighters and serve in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) if they choose to enlist and are enlisted and officers alike. Some Arabs work for Jews and some employ Jews or are placed in management above Jew and Arab alike. To state it as plain as possible, the Arab citizens in Israel are every bit a part and accepted members of Israeli society and can be as much a member as they choose. When claims are made that the Palestinians have not voted in Israeli elections, there is a good reason, they are not Israelis and many could have chosen such but were instead caught and imprisoned by their Arab brothers under the orders of the Mufti of Jerusalem back in 1949. This was to be their punishment and new utilization in the destruction of the Jewish State. That is the final item which need be communicated to the Trump advisors and others, that the Arab-Israeli conflict is not about land, it is about whether Jews are to be permitted to rule themselves or even to live at all on this planet. The original PLO charter and the Hamas charter both called for the eradication of the Jews, not the Israeli Jews but the Jews just as Hitler had desired. Hitler very likely was given the “Final Solution” as the manner of dealing with the Jews by the Mufti of Jerusalem who resided in Berlin during World War II and was an invitee, at his own insistence, to the Wannsee Conference where the Final Solution was drawn up and approved. The Mufti is rumored to have demanded the Nazis assist with the extermination of the Jews in the Middle East so he could rule an area free of the Jew. The Mufti probably initiated the Jews being made to wear the yellow star which had been the practice of an early sultan during the first Caliphate. The idea that the Arabs learned their anti-Semitism from the Nazis and the Europeans themselves is ridiculous as the Arab hatred of the Jews started in Arabia and was best exemplified in the Battle of Khyber where an entire town was murdered with the only exceptions being birthing age women and the trainable aged youth and it was this battle which set anti-Semitism, the unnatural hatred of the Jews, as one of the added pillars of Islam which has lasted to the modern times. This is why the pro-Palestinian often chant, “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sayud.” The threat of Khaybar is the threat of extermination, harkening back to Muhammad’s annihilation of an entire tribe of Jews, the Qurayzah.

 

 

 

And here from Hezballah who are a terror group operating out of Lebanon claiming that Israel is occupying part of Lebanon which they claim that the Galilee belongs to them, these are all lands south of the Armistice Line between Israel and Lebanon and the internationally recognized border between the two nations. Israel removed every last person from Lebanon over a decade past.

Time to End Minhal Ezrachi and COGAT

 

Both Minhal Ezrachi (Civil Administration) and COGAT (Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories) are obsolete, counterproductive, anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and well beyond their use-by-date. They both were established during the heady and oft wrong-headed days after the Six Day War designed to administrate over the formerly Jordanian occupied lands, illegal under every last line of applicable International Law and solely recognized by Pakistan and Britain, with the potential purpose to permit their ready status to be traded with Jordan in exchange for a peace treaty. Well, Israel has her peace treaty and Jordan renounced their false claims thus the reverting of these lands of Judea and Samaria back to their rightful owner under applicable International Law, Israel. That should have been the end of the story and Israel should have annexed these lands legally registering the residents as resident alien citizens granting them limited political rights within the areas they constitute a majority but barring them from national elections until a means, path and completion of becoming Israeli citizens was accomplished. Those refusing such should have been encouraged to emigrate even to the point of bribery. That, after peace was reached with Jordan would have been the end of the issue.

 

Instead, Minhal Ezrachi, COGAT, the elite ranking officers with the Minister of Defense (or without if need be) plus the Supreme Court backed by a core set of Ministers of the Knesset from both sides of the aisle all support the status-quo. All of these disparate entities have a stake in this game as it extends their control over the lives of the littler people starting with the Israelis residing in Judea and Samaria and continuing through the remainder of the population. There are any numbers of reasons this fiasco which could be resolved and settled once and for all is instead perpetrated indefinitely. Most of the players are fiercely guarding their power to control people and areas plus retaining their well-paid positions as commanders in the IDF and their path to the highest echelons and beyond into politics or a cushy job once they retire from serving in the IDF. These are careerists more than soldiers who claim they know what is best in Judea and Samaria constantly painting the area as fraught with dangers with a wild-west kind of vibe where only the Military keeps things from worsening. They also prevent change and thus progress to a solution. They see their responsibility to extend a situation in such a manner such that the IDF continues to rule the area, specifically the Israeli or, more accurately, the Jewish Israelis always calling for additional soldiers and funding as everything is forever escalating with just the right inclusion of progress which becomes erased and any freedoms further curtailed at every terrorist strike.

 

The Supreme Court simply is chasing that perfect society as they envision Israel. They view Israel quite differently than the average Israeli. The Supreme Court is largely a political dinosaur from the 1950’s Israel as the Supreme Court is largely, along with the position of State Attorney General, a self-replicating monster which perpetuates the socialist utopianism of the original court with extreme leftists all with minimal numbers as exceptions. They would feel at home on the Haaretz Editorial Board. They could best be described as Universalists and post-Zionists. They believe in Israeli democracy over Israel as the Jewish Homeland which they view as too exclusive; and they are multiculturalists as well as ultimate protectors of the human rights for everyone and even more so the determined underclass, in Israel’s case, the Palestinian Arabs. The Supreme Court Justices treasure their acceptance by the elite of Europe, particularly the leading government figures and the elite of the European Union. The Justices crave the approval of these leaders and paragons of human rights, post-modernism, multiculturalism and, of course, internationalism which call for the erasure of borders and above all the acceptance of the other who while having been raised under oppressions existing from their past treatment at the hands of the Western World and whose culture is equal if not superior to the Judeo-Christian, never to mention Jewish culture described and laid out in Torah, and must be not only accepted but treated with respect denied Western Culture. These are open border with state guaranteed wage, a combination long proven to be the views adopted just before the fall of near countless civilizations throughout history.

 

What makes all of this far more theater of the absurd than simple fiasco is for reasons unknown Jordanian law is enforced in Judea and Samaria by the IDF as directed by COGAT and the Minhal Ezrachi backed by the Supreme Court and allowed such insanity by the powers on both sides in the Knesset with a few select exceptions. Observing Jordanian Law is anti-Semitic as selling land to a Jew is punishable by death and simply being a Jew on land under Jordanian law is illegal punishable by deportation to Israel within the Green Line, the apparent intent of numerous NGO’s and much of the Muslim world plus the rest of the planet with few exceptions, or death. By observing Jordanian Law it was thought it would facilitate the return to Jordanian occupation. This was despite knowing that the Jordanian occupation was outright illegal as the border between Jordan and Israel was set as the Jordan River in so many treaties including but not limited to the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the ,a href=https://beyondthecusp.wordpress.com/treaty-of-lausanne/ target=blank>Treaty of Lausanne amongst others which culminated World War I as well as Article 80 of the United Nations Carter which further codified the Mandate System. These treaties give Israel first right to all of Judea and Samaria as well as voiding any and all of the land grant provisions by which leading members of the Jordanian government and friends of the King were granted deed to great stretches of these lands such that all the lands were gifted in this manner and largely was never developed. These land claims are utilized by NGO’s such but not limited to Peace Now, Yesh Din and Rabbis for Human Rights to sue any and all Israeli building in Judea and Samaria. These demolitions brought on through the Supreme Court by direct filing these NGO’s attack Jewish buildings from a single stand-alone home to entire cities such as Amona, which is currently under threat, as well as other “Jewish settlements” which are considerably larger and more developed (see picture below). Direct filing with the Supreme Court is legal and done in this case so that the liberal, left-leaning Supreme Court Justices can rule without requiring any investigation into the legality or even existence of actual Arab ownership. Evidence is taken as if vetted and verified thus these NGO’s need no tangible proof and an entire city can be ordered erased. When cases are filed to actually claim the land in court, many such cases are resigned from the docket before even a hearing as the claimant has withdrawn knowing the entire claim to be bogus.

Many of these NGO’s including those licensed and claiming to be homegrown pro-Israel groups are part of a post-Zionist, leftist, universalist groups which are all predominantly financed by European, American and other Western and Universalist entities receiving often less than one-third and some next to no funding originating in Israel. Some of the monies come from individuals directly, surreptitiously or through front groups or organizations; more from individual governments who also use other NGO’s to put distance, deniability and insulation between them and the monies; and some is funneled through the long and many tentacles of the United Nations and its various groups which are more money laundering operations than anything else. While almost every nation in this so-called civilized world has laws disallowing NGO’s from obtaining majority funding from outside the nation, some requiring well above half be domestically raised, whenever Israel proposes such a law the Europeans and American leftists, progressives and far right haters of Jews and Israel rise and make a cacophony of cries of complaints, screams of unfairness, yelping that democracy is under attack, squawking that freedom is being curtailed and other hooting and hollering over any-and-everything under the son being squelched and a fascism rising in Israel. All these accusations are made to prevent Israel having the same protections these other nations enjoy. This demanding Israel meet a standard not required of other nations has a name, anti-Semitism. Some claim it is anti-Zionism while others anti-Israel in the occupation, but all three are identical, demanding the Jew, the Jewish State, Israel to be judged by a different set of rules designed for the destruction and dismantling of the national home of the Jews. Yep, that is anti-Semitism.

 

Finally, much of this is the Israeli leadership’s fault. That includes all the leadership; the IDF, the Supreme Court, the media and especially Knesset and political hierarchy. The Knesset and political hierarchy could annex all of Area C with a simple bill with the only thing potentially blocking such a move would be the Supreme Court claiming it had some reason to belay and void the legislation passed by the Knesset. The way beyond that would be change a couple of punctuation and pass the legislation again and again and make it the biggest thing since Jews ate manna in the wilderness and allow the majority to get behind the idea and carry the day. Then Israel could city by city set up local governance for the Arab Palestinians, the former Jordanians, the Arabs holding other than legal Israeli passports; grant them semi-autonomy over the areas where they reside but keep them barred from general elections until they decide and take a path to citizenship. Emigration enticement with assistance in the form of a buyout of property with an added percentage for a clear deed should be Israeli policy including a records check to assure the land was not sold or belonging to another Jordanian/Palestinian Arab or other party. Even in such cases some form of emigration enticement should be in order. Emigrants must be made aware that any unauthorized return within Israeli borders will be dealt with harshly followed by an immediate deportation after prison sentence has been carried out. Israel honestly will by necessity have to annex these lands as soon as Hamas or Islamic State takes over after any remotely free elections. The Palestinian Authority (PA) is mortally wounded and entering its death throes. Abbas is entering the tenth or eleventh year of a five year term. Elections were once again cancelled; the PA had cancelled elections numerous times since their scheduled date of spring of 2009. Law and order is breaking down and radical Islamists are banding together and arming for whoever decides they want the base of operations so close to the heart of Israel. The time to act was actually immediately after the Six Day War with another opportunity immediately after Jordan made peace with Israel. Unfortunately, the Knesset and political hierarchy will continue dragging their feet and claiming that acting is impossible and need wait until the climate changes for the better. We’ve watched the world climate towards and concerning Israel and here have noted climate change and it has been the worst. Time has come to let the dust fly and settle where it will. Waiting has ceased to be the answer. There are six days before the Presidential Election in the United States after which President Barack Hussein Obama will be free to call a special session and pass a binding resolution negating all recognition currently existing for annexation of Judea and Samaria by the Security Council passing a Section Seven Resolution establishing the Palestinian State with the Green Line as its border and the whole of Eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Such a binding resolution would alter International Law possibly forever and would establish and likely add as a full member the new nation of Palestine. This is why action must be decided now and no delay must be permitted. The power to do so lies with the Knesset and the IDF could assist by working to prevent and end their assisting circumventing and neutering Israelis’ rights to settle our land. If we wait, we lose.

Coming of Obama’s Parting Shot @ Israel

 

President Obama, contrary to many leftist American Jews’ commentaries and letters to editors, has a quite high animosity towards Israel which has been evident from his Cairo speech onward. We will grant that we have been experiencing a calmed and quieted President Obama concerning Israel over the summer. That changed this week on the slightest of provocations. Israel announced their intention to continue with a previously announced building of homes in the Jewish community of Shiloh. These homes are being built in order to provide the families whose homes in a nearby community are to be destroyed in response to President Obama and the State Department efforts. Apparently President Obama and the State department desired these Jews be forced from beyond the 1949 Armistice line, the Green Line, and within the indefensible pre June 1967 borders. By the way, the belief that the pre June 1967 borders, the Green Line, being indefensible is not just the Israeli government’s belief but has been the position of numerous American Presidents, Secretary of States, Defense Secretaries and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pentagon and other Generals. Should Israel ever be forced back within those previous borders the midsection of the country in and around Tel Aviv will be a mere nine miles. Yes, Israel would be pushed into a border with her midsection only nine miles wide which, just for reference, is less than half the width of Washington, D.C. Yet there are rumors that President Obama is planning a last ditch ambush against Israel to punish Netanyahu and Israel for not making his Nobel Peace Prize valid and of having been awarded with valid foresight. The editorials and other commentaries criticizing the Nobel Committee for getting carried away over the election of the first President of the United States of color in their rush to award President Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize had even some within the Nobel Central Committee suggesting that the award be negated in the view of the actual record of President Obama’s Administration. Perhaps this might be President Obama’s effort to validate his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on the backs of the safety and possible future of Israel and her people.

Some have questioned what might be the real harm behind such a United Nations passing of such a resolution. There have been almost countless United Nations General Assembly Resolution and official denunciations from the Human Rights Council against Israel and Israel has survived them all quite nicely even to include the 1975 Zionism as racism General Assembly Resolution which was finally repealed some sixteen years later. Would another meaningless and unenforceable United Nations General Assembly generated piece of paper actually have any deleterious effects on Israel and the day to day life of the average Israeli? Well, that depends on whether what President Obama is intending to pursue is simply a harmless General Assembly Resolution or whether he is intent on something with more weight and potentially even some teeth to the motion. Granted, much of what might be accomplished at the United Nations, especially in the General Assembly where anything anti-Israel has a sort of built in guarantee of passage, would not be all that threatening but that is not what we expect from what we have been capable of gathering and assume from our efforts.

 

President Obama has had the vision of himself as the man who ultimately ended the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict and he has been determined since his very first day in the White House when he made his very first official phone call from the Oval Office to Mahmoud Abbas even before calling any actual head of state. There have been unconfirmed rumors about the content of that phone call which White House official commentary has passed off as being cordial but nothing of substance nor should any importance be placed in the call without proof that there were any guarantees or promises of intent communicated. Such a disclaimer reeks of something worth concealing being the reality and we have suspected that President Obama, filled with the grand visions of himself as some great communicator and a special individual with privilege and promise greater than his predecessors did in fact give guarantees to Mahmoud Abbas that he would press forward and bring about the Palestinian State which the President himself believed in his heart was the right and proper thing that was on the right side of history, and we all know President Obama’s sense of importance on things he perceives to be on the right side of history, whether that be the real side or not being unimportant. President Obama has criticized Vladimir Putin for being on the wrong side of history expecting that such a criticism would force President Putin to alter his plans and prevent him from such dangerous actions which would fall on the wrong side of history such as invading the Ukraine or interfering in President Obama’s plans in Syria. This right side of history theme plays a large part in President Obama’s views of the world and he also appears to believe that he has this special ability to judge what is and is not on the right side of history, and a Palestinian State is on his perceived right side of history as has been the Iran Nuclear Deal while Prime Minister Netanyahu is on the wrong side of History.

 

It is our conjecture that President Obama is not planning on a General Assembly Resolution calling for the formation of a Palestinian State with the Green Line as its borders and that all Israeli towns and other structures and settlements are merely unhelpful and undesired as they are preventing the settlement of the conflict. This is mere restating of what he and others have claimed in ever increasing volume and irascibility. President Obama has not given up on settling the conflict in what he views as the correct and properly fair manner which is, of course, the right side of history. As he sees history, Israel was illegally formed and has stolen Palestinian Arab lands as the Jews are a people of ill will; evil, dark hearts who have aggressively strode to steal ever more Arab Palestinian homeland and probably never should have been given the land for their state in 1948 or ever and do not deserve a nation of their own as they are to be punished to roam the world living at the kindness of others whom they repay with spite and poisoning their host’s lands and are accursed by Heaven and are the spawn of Satan. Simply stated, he agreed with every sermon condemning the Jews he ever heard in the Reverend Wright’s Mosque disguised as a church and was a friend and believer with Edward Said, Louis Farrakhan and Rashid Ismail Khalidi. These men were among the fomenters of President Obama’s feud with Israel and desire to destroy Israel through whatever means he was able and he sees that opportunity slipping from his grasp and will take whatever measures he feels will be effective in setting in motion the eventual destruction of Israel and by doing so rid the world of the Jew.

 

So what is it we fear that President Obama will be pursuing and at what point in his remaining weeks should his actions be expected. President Obama cannot act before the election and will remain mute while he will have others deny, deny, deny and deny any accusations no matter what evidence may be presented and will call on some of his “Jewish” friends to defend him such as the leaders of J-Street and friends from academia who share his distaste for Israel. Once the election has passed and the Christmas “Winter” break approaches and congress is ready to run for the hills, or from the Hill, he will arrange for a quiet, low key and unpublicized meeting of the Security Council where only those nations desired will be formally invited with the rest receiving the information of the meeting the night before. President Obama will then have presented a Resolution recognizing the State of Palestine with the Green Line as its borders and East Jerusalem as its Capital City. Where we believe he will actually go so far as to make the proposal a Chapter Seven Resolution which is enforceable by the use of military intervention if any side does not comply appropriately and within a reasonable period of time, he may still be persuaded to simply settle for a Chapter Six Resolution which is a strong and insistent demand which will be accepted by the vast majority of nations, does not allow for the use of military force to enforce the resolution, just economic and other methods including removing embassies and ambassadors, economic sanctions, diplomatic pressures and anything else as long as it remains short of military intervention. The reason he might not call for a Chapter Seven is should Donald Trump have won the election he knows that there would be little if any chance that his resolution no matter its wording would be enforced by the United States which pretty much means it would not be enforced. But should Hillary have won the election, President Obama would be free to go for all the marbles knowing that at worst a President Hillary Clinton would do little if anything to prevent military enforcement and would pretend her hands were tied and implement heavy political and economic pressures including an end to all aid to Israel and perhaps arming Arab forces and provide them with protective air support in forcing Israel to comply with President Obama’s final efforts. This could be done even against the will of Congress providing the efforts did not go beyond the Presidential prerogative for use of force. Going further could bring on charges of impeachment but should there be sufficient Democrat membership in congress, President Hillary Clinton could even ignore all limitations knowing she was safe from being fully impeached by both houses such that even if she were charged she would not be convicted.

 

As far as what could prevent President Obama from taking such actions, the answer is unfortunately, “Nothing.” Should he decide that such would establish for him his rightful place in history, on the right side of history as he sees it, then he will likely do as he sees fit. The minimum would be a simple General Assembly Resolution which would be next to meaningless but still fulfill his promises to see to the recognition of statehood for the Palestinians even despite such an action having no teeth. Such an effort would take little extra action as such a proposed Resolution, as stated before, would breeze through the General Assembly and could be accomplished even if he waited until after the New Year as he has the first three weeks before the inauguration to do as he feels proper and Congress does not return until the week of the inauguration and does not convene until after the inauguration. Anything done in January would be performed without any interference from Congress or ratification from Congress, of course. Congress is unlikely to approve of whatever moves President Obama chooses but that would have little effect on the General Assembly as they have often thumbed their noses at the United States Congress and also the President when it suited their mood of the moment. Any Security Council Resolution would eventually require the confirmation as if a treaty by Congress which would present problems for the United States supporting the action of the American President, even if a ‘lame duck’ in his final moments. Should the Resolution be a Chapter Seven Security Council Resolution then it would most definitively require Congressional ratification just as if it were a treaty, something the Senate would be unlikely to approve. As for what effect that would have on the United Nations Security Council actions is a wholly different kettle of fish. Finally, there is also the possibility that the Security Council Resolution could be introduced by a nation other than the United States and in order to avoid any fallout President Obama could simply have the United States abstain and not work against the resolution knowing that by doing such he would be granting the effort a tacit approval which would influence the other permanent members of the Security Council to at worst also abstain thus allowing it to very probably pass as some of the other members would still support such a measure. There is one other possibility, that of one of the other permanent members using their veto thus ending the resolution and if it were a Chapter Seven Resolution we are willing to bet that is exactly what would be the case. The nations most likely to use their veto might surprise many but we would expect either China or Russia to be the veto wielding savior. So, imagine an American President attempting to use the Security Council of the United Nations to have the world force Israel to surrender all lands gained in the 1967 Six Day War and retreat behind the Green Line and the Russians or the Chinese vetoing the Resolution foiling the efforts of the President of the United States. That would be the ultimate embarrassment and there could be no more fitting manner in which to provide President Obama with the award of being consistently on the wrong side of history in his entire eight years as President.

 

As far as counting on anything to counter any actions intended by President Obama as he got on average three-quarters of the Jewish vote in his two elections if not higher. About the only Jews who can be definitively counted upon to raise the roof are the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) who will be left talking while the phone has been secured under a cushion and the aide has left the room. There is nothing that the American Jews would even be willing to do as there will be at least as high a percentage voting for Hillary Clinton as voted for President Obama and most of the rest are represented by the ZOA or are Orthodox Jews likely residing in the New York greater metropolitan area and thus their votes even ifnot for Hillary will make little if any difference unless the all but unthinkable happens and New York State becomes a close race and Trump actually has even the slightest of hopes. That is unlikely but we can hope.

 

So what can be done and is it possible? What can be done is risk it all and have Prime Minister Netanyahu call the American Amabassador to his office, have the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations call the American Ambassador to his office, have the Israeli Ambaddador to the United States call the Secretary of State for an urgent meeting, and if refused, then leave a letter at the White House addressed to the President and hand delivered all with a single message. Should President Obama use the Security Council for any resolution establishing a Palestinian State or declaring the 1949 Armistice Lines as a recognized border, Israel will take action. These lines are also called the Green Line, the one President Obama misnames as the 1967 lines, as they were not established in 1967 but were corrected in 1967. The action Israel would take should the United States seek official recognition of such as a border by the Security Council, would be to establish the Jordan River as the border as it is legally under all international laws including at least one treaty ratified by the United States when stating and signing on to agreements that the San Remo Conference was a valid document and the Treaty of Sèvres and all others based on San Remo are valid in signifying the borders for the Jewish State.

 

This establishment of the proper and legal borders will not permit a single Palestinian to become a citizen immediately and will establish the officers, leaders and security force officers and all of the special forces as personna non grata in Israel and provide them with two weeks to find new living arrangements. All of the Palestinian Security Forces will have forty eight hours to turn in their weapons and each will be reviewed and may potentially be hired for the new police force under Israeli police command. Some may even be granted their former rank and even placed in command positions if they check to have no connections to terrorist entities past or present. Finally, the citizens of the Palestinian Authority will be permitted to remain and will continue to have their businesses, their homes, their jobs if they work for an Israeli owned company, and some employees if requested by companies which relocated within Israel due to the BDS boycotts may be granted work entry permits to return to their former positions should the company so request. After a year there will be decision made as to whether and the procedure that interested Arabs formerly under the Palestinian Authority government will be permitted to start the procedures for Israeli citizenship. Within six months of that date there will be free and open election in the former areas of the Palestinian Authority under Israeli supervision. Former Palestinian Authority citizens will be granted local voting rights in their areas but should they move they will be required to seek Israeli citizenship once a procedure is established before being granted the vote. As the Palestinian Authority citizens will initially be considered alien residents, they will not have rights to vote in Israeli general elections as that will remain reserved for Israeli citizens, including any of the Palestinian Authority Arabs who gain such citizenship. Israel will immediately take over the police and security functions and all radio and television and cable networked shows and start a review to see if they meet with Israeli broadcast regulations and laws before being permitted back on the air. Other problems will be handled as they present themselves and any terrorist activity will be punished by immediate repatriation to their country of origin or any nation they might choose who will accept them even to include the United States.

 

An example might be the Palestinian Authority Registrar for the National Palestinian Committee for Education, Culture and Science who was not only not from the Israeli area but his name tells his nationality as he is from Sudan as the rest of Murad Al-Sudani clan originated. He is the Secretary General as listed on their official site here about half way down the page. He is far from the only officer or person of importance as most of the higher ranking persons, Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas amongst them, are of foreign origins, another of the dirty little secrets which are constantly denied and all proof ignored by the rest of the world as their desired future lies with an Arab extinguishing of Israel. That alone should have been enough reason for the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their gangs be removed and law and order replace the kleptocrats stealing the people blind and sent packing giving peace and real opportunity returned to the decent people of the West Bank and Gaza, and there are a number of decent people who are mostly scared to death and must watch their every utterrance. They deserve better and a fair opportunity for a productive life.
