Pro-Palestinian Pressure Pushing President Obama

 

The hounding of hate is hammering President Obama to act unilaterally to recognize the Palestinian State and declare the borders as the Green Line before it is too late. The claim is by taking on such a bold endeavor he will forever place his name into the history of the Middle East as the man who achieved the impossible. The two leaders have already launched their opening salvos with President Jimmy Carter sounding off in the New York Times with two days later Dennis Ross following up in the Washington Post with both sounding their same sirens song of doom. President Jimmy Carter never misses an opportunity to display his visceral hatred for the Jewish State while Dennis Ross is simply a misguided soul forever attempting to make right his deep and enduring trust that Yasser Arafat and, by inference, his understudy Mahmoud Abbas are statesmen who have forgone their terrorist pasts and become men in the mold of Gandhi. Needless to point out that both we here at BTC and history have proven both men horrifically misguided. In the case of President Carter it is a true hatred while Dennis Ross took a wrong turn back around 1990 and has never recovered and found the highway to the future and continues down one dead end after another. The real problem is that President Obama shares both men’s shortcomings when it comes to Israel and particularly Prime Minister Netanyahu. The question is does this situation portend some imminent disaster or will Israel survive these last six weeks unscathed by the wrath of the White House.

Truth be told, it does not bode well for President Obama to actually make good on his indications that there is no last minute surprise in store for United States policy in the Middle East, particularly for Israel and the Palestinian situation. The problem comes to a head the day after Christmas and was set in motion by the Israeli Supreme Court. According to a ruling by the Supreme Court of Israel, in response to a leftist petition claiming Arab ownership of lands which the community of Amona is using, with an absentee deed issued by Jordan during their illegal occupation of Judea and Samaria as the proof of Arab ownership, the community has been ordered destroyed. The owners of these lands never built any structure there, likely never tread their feet on said soil, probably could not locate their land on a blank map of the area and were given honorary title largely to make claim to prevent Jews from ever owning the land. Jordan gave out such deeds in name only covering the majority of the lands of Judea and Samaria as a reward and as a stop against squatters while they possessed the lands and now this ploy is being used against honest development of the area by post-Zionist leftists. The sickening part of all this is these are Israeli Jews whose NGO’s are largely European supported and have next to no Israeli funding but register as Israel due to lack of legal requirement for NGO’s to have predominately domestic funding, a law found in the United States and virtually every European nation but denied Israel by Western, mostly European, demands and protests every time the Knesset considers such a law plus the Israeli Supreme Court, ever the backer of all idea European, threatens to negate any such law which is made into law. This is an example of another problem brought on by an out of control judiciary where the Supreme Court has taken on the position of final arbiter of all things legal to such an extent as to have negated laws they disagree with politically and writing new laws they believe are necessary to extend and further empower themselves. When additionally, the Supreme Court itself has veto power over any proposed sitting of Judges replacing any jurist who dies in office or steps down, plus also appointing their Chief Justice; this has produced a Supreme Court which rules as if the year is still somewhere around 1970, standing immeasurably to the left of the Israeli public and governance who are all but powerless against this abuse of power. The runaway Supreme Court relishes handing out destruction orders for any Israeli development, even to include legally built communities which were granted government approval and have every piece of paper required for ownership, simply by any NGO claiming they know of previous Arab ownership of the land in question and ruling without any process to determine whether such deed exists or right of ownership. According to Justices sitting on the Supreme Court it is not their place to determine ownership and they need not question such claims as who would make such a claim falsely. Well, as it turns out, these NGO’s would and have done so with actual cases where they found an Arab who would claim ownership, nobody along the way required proof and when the suit of ownership finally reached a lower court the claimant usually is nowhere to be found fearing filing false claims charges. This has occurred more than once and more often than not no claim for ownership is ever filed by the supposed Arab claimant in most instances.

 

With the Supreme Court demanding the destruction of this community on December 25th, the day after Christmas and the second day of Chanukah, the pressure has come upon the Knesset to reign in the Supreme Court and their presumed power using this case as the weapon of choice. The Prime Minister has attempted to mollify the situation claiming that the community will simply be moved a few hundred meters away from the lands behind the order and the community of Amona will be saved as if a community can be moved by waving his magic wand. The promise of moving homes and communities to new locations close to their former location have been proffered by Israeli politicians before and then the feasibility study renders such impossible or far too expensive and the community gets destroyed and remains destroyed. This ploy will not be accepted as the viable magic solution once again. The sole solution which should be implemented by the Knesset is the issuing of a Basic Law which empowers the Knesset alone in the determination of legality of any Israeli community and its structures and that once the community has been properly filed and plans set then the Supreme Court will be prohibited from making any destruction orders without first a settlement of proper claim has been made and verified settled by lower courts. This would make a great first step in solving a serious problem within Israel and allow people residing in these challenged locations who possess righteous claims under the law to rest easy at night that the next day bulldozers are not going to come and destroy their lives.

 

Subsequent to such an enactment of a Basic Law, sort of a constitutional set of laws which can be enacted and amended by simple majority, another problem for another time, there need be a resetting of the selection process for judgeships, especially for the Supreme Court. The legal community could and should have input as to who is eligible to be placed on the bench and who can be elevated to the Supreme Court. Their input need be as part of the selection committee but not the validations process or even the majority decider in said committee. Further, the Prime Minister should be the originator of a list of acceptable names worked out between him and the leaders of the ruling coalition and with input from the leader of the opposition. This list should then be passed to a committee made up of perhaps nine electors; three from the judiciary, three from the Knesset ruling coalition, two from the opposition and one representing the Prime Minister. Once these committee members have decided on the judge, then the Knesset should decide needing an approval of seventy-two Knesset Ministers (60%) with Supreme Court nominees required to have eighty Knesset Members agree to their appointment (2/3). Such a procedure would provide for adequate Judicial input while leaving the final appointment up to the representatives of the people of the State of Israel and not permit the tyranny of the robes continue unabated. This ruling need also be included in the Basic Laws and should serve as the template if and when a Constitution is finally permitted to be written.

 

Still, should the community of Amona become another battleground between the Supreme Court and the elected governance, especially if it becomes a battle between the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister, then it could explode initially in the Israeli media with Haaretz leading the cheer for destruction and supporting the Supreme Court, it would soon be picked up by the European media and them the United States mainstream media and the howling worldwide would begin. The European media would be demanding the Supreme Court order to destroy Jewish homes be upheld immediately as they always have and in the United States the left leaning media would likely follow suit while right leaning media would support the residents of the community and the Prime Minister and/or the Knesset as they represent the will of the people. Such a brouhaha exploding in the media might be the impetus supporting the demands of Dennis Ross and President Jimmy Carter and demanding the destruction of what will most certainly be labeled a “settlement” might prompt the White House to take action to settle the entire controversy.

As President Obama has consistently implied that the border for any Arab Palestine should be the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, and the division of Jerusalem to be the shared Capital of each nation; the immediate problem is Jerusalem which Israelis feel militantly strongly must remain in Israeli control such that the Holy Sites in the Old City, including the Temple Mount, are open to all people of all faiths and not once again become a closed area where only Muslims are permitted to tread as it was under Jordanian Rule and would return to under Arab Palestinian rule. This would present a breaking-point which would have no means of breaching to reach a settlement. This would bring down any government prepared to give away half of our Holy City and Capital City for three-thousand years and never having been the capital city of any other nation. Jerusalem is the beating heart of Judaism and the Arabs are aware of this which is why they are demanding it be broken in two as should such come to pass the wound to Judaism and religious Jews would be insufferable and could not be permitted to stand. That is the plain and simple truth and no Israeli government could stand after suffering such a proposal even for consideration. This strong and unyielding attachment was best described by the Song of Babylon written as a response to the demand of the Babylonians that their Jewish Israelite captives who were being sold into slavery in many a case sing for them a song as the Jews, especially the Priests, were renowned for their love of song and singing abilities. One must remember that the young King David played the lyre and was sweet in song such that he would be called to sing to King Saul to soothe the King in times of distress. There is one of the most famous lines within this song of distress which read “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill (lose its strength). May my tongue cling to my palate, if I do not remember you, if I do not bring up Jerusalem at the beginning of my joy.” That is the importance of Jerusalem, that and so much more. As might be said in less formal a situation, dividing Yerushalayim be fighting words.

 

Of course there would be no dividing of Jerusalem nor would there be the acceptance of the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, and no acceptance of an Arab State by any name unless that state replaced all of Israel either through the return of over five million Arabs into Israel all steeped in the same indoctrination by UNRWA as the Hamas and PLO terrorists the Palestinian Arab schools churn out year after year with their textbooks filled with hatred of Israel and Jews, all Jews everywhere and anywhere. Mahmoud Abbas has already declared all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as an Islamic Sacred Waqf. By his own declarations he is religiously tied to refuse anything short of the complete destruction of Israel. If Abbas were to accept the 1949 Armistice Lines as borders, even temporary borders, he would be hung from a crane by noon on that day and the entirety of Judea and Samaria, and we’re afraid parts inside Israel, would briefly turn into a redux of Syria with all the violence and a heated war waged between the PLO against Hamas with Islamic State trying to take control as well. Granted such lawlessness inside Israel would be rapidly quelled and the areas within Judea and Samaria where Israel is responsible for keeping the peace under the Oslo Accords would also be pacified but until the world demanded, the area presumably controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) would remain a lawless land of strife, struggle and death.

 

Press Abbas to accept such a declaration and one is lighting the fuse on a dangerous situation which would explode as the people within the areas ruled by the PA and Hamas in Gaza have been indoctrinated such that few under the age of thirty or forty would stand for such and would immediately replace whoever from the PA agreed and this would decapitate the PA, PLO, Fatah and the entirety of PA run lands where these groups as well as Hamas and Islamic State would immediately vie for superiority and you would have instant Syria, just add a forced peace settlement. Very quickly allowing Israel to do whatever was required and to declare all the land as Israel would become acceptable even in the United Nations as such added violence in an area already steeped in violence and failed states, one more which could be handed off to Israel to handle, would almost immediately be handed to Israel with European and American blessings. Where this would result in all of Israel as promised by San Remo conference, Treaty of Serves and even after the White Papers and the United Nations failed partitioning which the Arab League flatly refused and invaded Israel immediately the first morning of her statehood and a series of failed peace plans including the disastrous Oslo Accords and Israel total unilateral withdrawal from Gaza, finally being established on all of the lands actually remaining as Israeli under existing international law. The reality of the River to the Sea is that it all actually belongs legally to Israel and only Israel can allow any other entity to establish any otherwise ordered autonomy. The PA exists by the good graces and permission of Israel and should that fail the lands resort to Israeli rule.

 

So, if the prodding of President Jimmy Carter and Dennis (I never met a peace plan I didn’t back that didn’t fail) Ross along with the internal Israeli coming dust-up over the legality and existence of Amona all presses President Obama to actually make a declaration recognizing anything more permanent and fixed concerning an Arab State within Israel, this will soon devolve, especially if borders are set or implied heavily enough, into a violent struggle to determine who gets to demand the annihilation of all the Jews in Israel leading to IDF intervention and very likely Europe demanding Israel take control of the situation before it spreads into Jordan and beyond. Even President Obama might be pressed but President Trump will definitively decide that the easiest solution is for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria and settle everything down restoring peace and replacing the indoctrination centers with actual schools teaching skills other than bomb making and stabbing 101. President Obama is fully aware of the reality which is why he will most likely let sleeping dogs lie rather than start a war on his way out, especially an unnecessary war.

 

Eventually somebody will have to realize that the actors on the Arab side of this equation have yet to keep a single promise, yet to meet a single requirement, yet to apply actual rule of law, yet to hold another election since electing Abbas dictator, yet to fulfill even the most rudimentary requirements for statehood, but have fully gone to great extremes to demand that they be credited with having completed every requirement to establish a state. The Arabs in Judea and Samaria have indoor plumbing throughout most of their communities installed and supplied by Israel, get the majority of their water, gas and electricity, if not all, from Israel and have yet to pay for any of it since the year 2000 and before, rely on Israel for security to keep the PA in power and prevent Hamas or Islamic State amongst others from conducting a coup (Israel has prevented at least half a dozen coup attempts by Hamas which the public has been made aware), rely on the cash in the millions per month to run their area the size of a midsized city as the majority of the international funding goes for two main products; bombs and weapons along with graft taking a large share right off the top, have never actually prevented any terror activities carried out by the PLO (they have prevented a few Hamas operations which have been classified as terror but could have been coup attempts and not attacks on Israel), when forced to incarcerate a terrorist they go in the front door to serve a multi-year sentence and are released through the back door in a couple of weeks if not days or even hours, and had one of the most disturbing displays of animal hatred and bloodletting when an Italian photojournalist caught the picture below with the story here, here, and finally here, plus they have seldom missed an opportunity to have invented and exaggerated stories of Israeli malfeasance such as Jenin, and we could go on and on.

There has been much projecting on what President Obama might do to release his vengeance on Prime Minister Netanyahu and to hurt Israel permanently under International Relations. Israel should be wise and quietly relate to Administration officials that any drastic alteration from the agreed settlement reached through direct negotiations will be met with determination and resolve. Further information on what is meant by determination and resolve should be met that the degree to which such responses might take would be situationally dependent and would take actions measurable to any provocation or attack on the status-quo which the Administration was always so concerned about over the last eight years. Israel fully expects that said status-quo will continue and there will be no surprises or alterations placed on the balanced situation. This situational reactive desire will include any changes at the United Nations, The Hague or in any other international forum and not solely actions by the United States including lack of action allowing changes to occur. Should Israel find all things remain within the broader definition of the status-quo, then there would be no appreciable moves by Israel. Just believe that Israel is prepared to counter any move aimed at compromising Israel and the guarantees in place from before the election and including all expectations from promises and previous apparent intentions.

 

For the record, the rest of this editorial is purely the desired reactions BTC would hope have been communicated at least as strongly as above and potentially including some of what follows. One item which the world need understand is Israel will never allow any rescinding of our having annexed all of Jerusalem including the Old City, the Kotel and Plaza and the Temple Mount. These are all vital historic lands upon which there can be no debate, end of story. It is the intent of Israel to retail all of Area C which has been the intent from the very beginning of negotiations and Israel is adamant on this point. Area A will be permitted as Palestinian lands and agreements need be found to divide the lands in Area B such that each state has contiguous borders in the division in Judea and Samaria. All of these agreements depend on the Palestinians and the Arab nations recognize Israel as the home of the Jewish People and all reach a peace and agree that all hostilities will end. The situation is and has always been the Arab/Israeli conflict and not limited to just the Palestinians but the Arab and Muslim worlds. Any final agreement which falls short of this level of acceptance is a formula for eventual warfare and as such is unacceptable to Israel who desires peaceful and even beneficial relations with the other nations in the MENA nations (Middle East and North Africa – see map below). Israel will also retain the Golan Heights, particularly since there is no true Syrian government and the Islamic State, which is being enriched with Saudi Arabian funds and arms, could easily take these heights long enough to launch a severe attack upon Israelis residing in the Galilee. These same heights were previously used by Syrian snipers to practice their craft murdering farmers who were simply tending their fields and animals. That is another reason Israel must retain these high lands. Finally, the Jordan valley and overlooking heights will remain defended by the IDF as this is the first line for the defense of Israel. These minimal states need to be communicated through whatever channels used for official warnings and staunch positions. These are Israeli stances which have been presumably eroded but are being reestablished and former promises from San Remo through Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and the original mandate system. These promises need be realized and any compromise within the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea will be permitted by the good graces of Israel and not through any external pressures or threats.

Israel must take whatever defensive measures and precautions necessary to assure that should there be a parting vengeance shot from the White House in a manner which would be difficult or impossible for the Trump Administration to counter and return everything to the equilibrium which existed before any action by a parting President Obama, then Israel will have procedures and actions which would assure Israel’s rights and safety for the future. These are warnings and military planning with troops drilled and practiced for carrying out whatever is necessary to execute each of the responses to any of a complete series and span of potential attacks at the status-quo. Israel should be prepared to limit the Palestinian Authority (PA) to Area A and limited parts of Area B but none of Area C and if the Security Council were to pass an enforceable resolution, then Israel need act even if it causes a potential for a confrontation and be prepared to hold their ground and should world powers then demand Israel relent and it becomes apparent that an actual confrontation is in the making, then Israel will have little choice but to slowly pull from lands as necessary and also terminate all water, power and other services which the PA is behind on their payments. The world might be capable of forcing a settlement on Israel giving the PA everything that President Obama has continuously threatened to recognize, namely the pre Six Day War borders on Israel, there is absolutely no reason for Israel to power, water, feed and totally support such an open and immediate threat to her safety. There is no means other than invading an independent nation, Israel, and take control of the power grid, water systems and other utilities and even broadcast frequencies so as to provide free everything for the PA and force Israel to provide such support through invading a sovereign state, an act of war. That begs the question as to which nations would attempt an invasion just to enact such a spiteful assault by Barack Hussein Obama as he leaves office. One would hope none of the main powers would enforce such but Israel should be prepared for even the most unlikely of situations, the world backing a temper tantrum. Israel actually could annex all of Judea and Samaria followed by deportation of every officer from the PA and all of the security personnel, particularly the ones with terror ties which include the majority of the police and security personnel. This must be one possible solution which should be reserved only should President Obama attempt to give all of Judea and Samaria to the PA as a gift and claim the United States recognizes their invented nation. Such cannot be permitted to stand as within days either Hamas or Islamic State would take possession of the lands which then would allow them to pose a direct threat to Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion International Airport and the majority of infrastructure, business and residential neighborhoods, a completely untenable situation. This is the threat and potential situation facing Israel and why the leadership must make any action by President Obama have consequences which are spelled out in advance such that there can be no surprise or claim that the reaction was not anticipated. The real aim is to preserve the status-quo such that the system can continue for as long as the world demands that terrorists of the PA must be coddled as if they actually cared for the people residing under their corrupt rule. The day will come, possibly soon, when the people living under the PA will demand real leadership and an end to their impoverished state directly due to the thieving of their leadership. On that day the Israelis will know that the Palestinian people are ready to have peace and a future for their children and themselves.

Can There be a Single Palestinian State?

 

This question has been raised numerous times as has the other question of whether or not the lands west of the Jordan River were recognized until the November 29, 1947 United Nations illegal vote to further divide the area set aside for the Jewish State under International Law which was rejected by the Arab League who decided on a war of genocidal annihilation and for taking all the land over the dead bodies of the Jewish State and every Jew they could lay their hands upon. It was not Israel’s fault they were unable to defeat the nascent Jewish State. It was not the fault of Israel that Jews have been persecuted and expelled from most Middle East Countries and they managed to find refuge in Israel, a country smaller than New Jersey. Jimena.org reported that since 1948, 850,000 Jews have been expelled from Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen and other Middle East Countries. Israel is not “Occupied Palestinian Land”. Israel is the homeland of the Jewish People and the only safe haven for Jewish Refugees in the Middle East. Israel knows that should the entirety of the case for another Arab failed state to be formed from the lands which were the British Mandate ever come before any International Court including, or even especially, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) all the Israelis will need do is present the Balfour Declaration, the San Remo Conference Report, the Treaty of Sèvres and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and the court will have no choice but to award the lands west of the Jordan River in its entirety to Israel and the Jewish People and possibly allow for the placing the entirety of the “Palestinian People” across the Jordan for the Arab League to decide their fate. We already know what the Arab League will do, they will immediately capture and hold every last Arab and place them is squalid camps to rot until time and the wearing down of the will of the world results in a war against Israel in order to give these people, the new refugees plus all the old ones, a land atop the dead bodies of the Jewish State. The Arabs will become additional refugees cared for by UNRWA which will demand funds from the Western and non-Arab Worlds with the Arabs pledging but rarely providing any aid except in the form of explosives for bomb-belts for terrorists to use to blow up Israelis, most often women and children as those setting the explosives are just as craven and cowardly as their leadership. But what about the viability of an Arab Palestinian State, is such a thing possible?

 

Ah, yes, that chimera known as the Arab Palestinian State. That would require the impossible, the locating of leadership acceptable to the entirety of the leadership, the most fractured of leadership, of the so-called Palestinian People. Such an entity would be as impossible as resolving the untying of the Gordian Knot, the knot which Alexander the Great was unable of untying and instead cleaved in two with his sword instead. The initial problem is the obvious need for reconciliation between Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) as well as Fatah which rules the PA. Hamas is an Islamist group which is largely sponsored by Iran though remaining loyal on paper to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and their being a sworn Sharia State of religious extremists sworn to the annihilation of the Jewish State and every citizen within including the Arabs and the further extermination of all Jews throughout the world on their way to establishing the World Caliphate. The PA is a nationalist entity also sworn to the destruction of the Jewish State, the Zionist Entity as they have refused to accept the statehood of Israel, and the murder of every Zionist and Jew found within replacing it with another Arab democratic dictatorship where the casting of votes is secondary to who does the counting and verification of the election and the votes cast. This is the simplest of problems facing unifying the Arab Palestinians and forming a state, the unification of the governments in Gaza and Nablus is the obvious divide and step one.

 

Gordian Knot and Alexander the Great

Then there are the additional problems facing anybody seeking the real and true leadership of the two separate and unequal factions of Hamas and the PA. Let us take the Gaza Strip and the rule there of Hamas and see what is within that onion as we peel back the layers to the very cores hidden within. Hamas currently controls the majority of the lands and people but faces threats to their claim to the throne by a number of other groups, some even more viable than Hamas can itself offer. The most evident threat comes in the form of the true and faithful representative of the MB which has not been corrupted by Iran, the Islamic Jihad group. Just as Hamas was the religious fanatic groups against Fatah, Islamic Jihad is the pure entity uncorrupted by power and outside influences carrying on the good fight for the MB. They claim to be the true and clean representatives for the religious Jihad being waged against the Jewish State and accuse Hamas of corroborating with Israel whenever they face political realities and enforce a ban of the firing of rockets into Israel. The enforcement on bans of firing rockets until such time as an actual attack plan on Israel has been formulated and formalized is imposed by Hamas, waiting until then for choosing an actual warring front against Israel being readied and the supporting rocket fire planned and to their (Hamas’s) advantage. Until that time Hamas is unwilling to choose to fight Israeli presumed oppressive and subjugating rule and occupation in Gaza. The problem with this presumption is simple as Israel departed the entirety of Gaza in a painful destruction of the Israeli Jewish communities which some remain unable to restart their lives and farms within Israel. Israel turned the entirety of Gaza over to the PA who simply handed it over to Hamas after Hamas won the elections within the PA legislative body largely on the support from the Gazans voting in their favor. They then conquered Gaza taking it in an abrupt and short coup where a fair number of PA members were killed or sent fleeing back to Nablus in Judea and Samaria and the center of power for the PA. That would be the final rift to repair and likely the most difficult.

 

Islamic Jihad likely has the support of what would become their rivals should the Islamic Jihad Islamists ever take control of Gaza. Hamas has become detested because they refrain from firing rockets into Israel before they have actual achievable objectives which are feasible and the detailed plans worked out and practiced. Hamas rules Gaza through intimidations and a strict enforcement by their Force 21 elite fighters. Hamas has also enlisted the support of many of the Tribesmen who also sport fighting units which they control and could turn on Hamas immediately as they would show weakness and vulnerability. Islamic Jihad could likely expect the support of the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and various other crime bosses and Islamists itching to constantly fight against Israel with no real game plan or overriding planning which Hamas insists are a necessary evil best carried out in calm but seething silence. Further, the Islamic State would like to see their leadership become the ruling force in Gaza as well as in Judea and Samaria which would assist their claims to proper rule representing the will of the people. If either Islamic Jihad or Islamic State were to assume power in Gaza, they would be ruling under their claim to have replaced Hamas completely. Should such a coup occur the initial signs would be the slaughtering or execution of the leadership of Hamas along-side any Hamas known allies caught using mass hangings with which to clean the area of “traitors” and all opposition.

 

Such a sustained journey to capture any and all their leadership would present such a challenge that the immediate response would result in a reduction in numbers which Hamas claims is the heart of the resistance as well as the knowledge of where the supplies are stored which would be required to continue the war of attrition against the State of Israel. As soon as Islamic Jihad or any other group might rise to power they would be facing the same threats to their rule as currently are faced by Hamas. They would necessarily immediately execute massive rocket fire on Israel which would be countered by the Iron Dome Systems placed near every main city and targeting the front lines against any current Hamas rocket and missile threats. The group taking over Gaza would face the daily problems of housing those whose homes have been destroyed or rendered unsafe through action taken in response to former threats from Israel. The new leaders in Gaza would learn quickly that running a city, a province, requires people dedicated to cleaning of Gaza and providing security, the rule of law and a myriad of other services plus the need under all of this of a fully volunteer force which would do as their passage to safety. Ruling a people requires such not so trivial problems such as a currency valued to continue trade of goods and services, trash pick-up, power generation, water purification and distribution, sewage treatment and numerous other relative works required by any modern society. Much of what Gazans receive are gifts provided through Israel which includes electricity, water, natural gas and other seemingly necessary items. The demands of leadership such as these and a million other otherwise petty actions would take on lives of their own demanding resolutions and access to resources, resource management would become an important and new task requiring a talented entity to carry out such a demanding position. Any new leadership would face a very steep learning curve and an unforgiving public demanding immediate attention and relief.

 

Then there soon comes the challenges of payments for services provided and rendered which requires a tax or other money stream and sooner or later the Islamic Jihad becomes the Israeli puppet masters preventing near constant rocket fire not desiring the additional need to command during a raging conflict with Israel and Hamas would now become the pristine and clean choice to attack Israel unmercifully. These comparisons and different leadership eventually would require some form of coalition of the groups sharing the same philosophy concerning Israel to lead in Gaza. Whomever it turns out to be leading such a groups would necessarily be a religious jihadist who believes that Islam must invariably rule the entireties of planet Earth, that Islam will eradicate the Jews from the Holy Lands and then the rest of the Jews around the world, and further that Allah will solve every problem and break down every barrier they might face. Should such a force become a viable leader for the entirety of the planet, the industrialized and modern world could forget all about individual freedoms as under Sharia it is all about the collective underlying Ummah which blindly obeys the Imams who rule religiously over the planet taking from it any will to live free and act independent of the Imam’s choking iron fist. That is the promise Gaza offers for the Arab Palestinians and eventually the world. There is no difference between Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Daesh, the Islamic State (ISIS).

 

Over in Nablus is a different monster and it goes by the name of Mahmoud Abbas and his sons. They have an economic relationship with power and found that power enriches at a level commensurate with corruption. Mahmoud Abbas at age eighty will eventually fall and then comes the free-for-all to determine his successor. There is no heir apparent though there are a few favorites. There is a list of who’s-who of the Fatah ruling elite all of which desire to replace Abbas. Here is that list with their jihadist names in parenthesis and then we will talk about some of the more powerful and likely successors to Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen): Al-Tayyeb Abdul Rahim (Abu al-Tayyeb), Zakaria al-Agha (Abu Ammar), Azzam al-Ahmed, Mahmoud al-Aloul (Abu Jihad), Marwan Barghouti, Ahmad Sakhr Khlousi Basseiso (Sakhr Basseiso), Mohammad Dahlan (Abu Fadi), Hassan Ahmad Abu Einein (Sultan Abu Einein), Saeb Erekat (Abu Ali), Othman Abu Gharbieh, Muhammad Ghneim (Abu Maher), Muhammad al-Madani, Sharif Ali Meshaal (Abbas Zaki) (Abu Meshaal), Jamal Muhaisen, Nasser al-Qudwa, Jibril Rajoub (Abu Rami),Nabil Abu Rudeinah, Nabil Shaath (Abu Rashid), Hussein al-Sheikh, Mohammad Shtayyeh, Tawfiq al-Tirawi (Abu Hussein), and Salim Zanoun (Abu Adib). Saeb Erekat (Abu Ali) had the misfortune of being the heir apparent to Mahmoud Abbas but Abbas is viewed with such a jaundiced eye by the Arab Palestinians that anybody Abbas would support they would equate with poison. Saeb Erekat has another problem in that while he would be a competent leader he does not have the stomach for what would be demanded of him to remain in office. Marwan Barghouti is another of the terrorist arm of Fatah and is currently serving five life sentences in an Israeli High Security Center in which the “inmates” who are all Arab Palestinian terrorists and their planners and bomb makers, a really sweetheart of a group, live with generous conjugal visitation rights, sporting events such as volley ball, soccer and others, often hold extended family picnics and other activities more in common with summer camp than prison camp which was proven when a terrorist stabber a few years back was insistent that the IDF security checkpoint soldiers arrest him to the point of repeatedly attacking them until he got his wish. When his case came before a judge he pleaded to be found guilty of the crimes he had confessed to having committed despite the judge knowing different. When finally he was broken down to giving an honest confession it turned out he wanted to be sentenced to life in prison for having killed at the least five Israelis so he could be well employed and eat well and having his family be financially well off and taken care of due to his “criminal acts murdering Israelis.” He confessed that he could not find work as a carpenter as those jobs were given to family and friends and not to actual carpenters. He eventually was simply released and cleared of all charges and was warned that should he come before the courts again he would be tried for perjury and imprisoned with no Israelis lives to his discredit. Back to Marwan Barghouti, possibly a competent leader but also a terror mastermind who plans bombings which has made his the poster child of the European Union, many European government agencies and the United States State Department. His candidacy is supported by many in the West which may be his undoing. Already there are calls from across Europe for his release so he can run against Abbas should there ever be elections. Ever be elections, now That’s Funny but also so predictable and tragic.

 

Mohammad Dahlan (Abu Fadi) is one of the favorites of the rank and file terrorist members of Fatah and a solid politician in the most corrupt of ways, which is what qualifies him for the job of replacing Abbas. He is another one the Western World finds irresistible. We believe we have figured out why the West falls for some of the worst of these candidates, they support any of the terror masters who can wear an Armani suit and look comfortable doing so. Dahlan is another of those who sends others to their deaths in the cause he believes people should commit even unto death to believe in. He claims to have such strong beliefs in the elimination of the “Zionist Entity” yet somehow he is still with us. Some of the others with which we are familiar include Jibril Rajoub (Abu Rami), Nabil Shaath (Abu Rashid), and Tawfiq al-Tirawi (Abu Hussein). We copied the original list from a PDF formatted report titled Fatah Central Committee Profiles which has a complete profile for each person and far more information than we could ever contain in a single article. We advise those interested to seek this and use it as an introductory piece covering the aspirants to succeed Abbas as Chairman of the Fatah Party. Whether that would suffice to give them a leg up for assuming other positions Mahmoud Abbas holds which include but are not limited to Fatah Chairman, Palestinian Authority President, Secretary General of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorist group), and considered the general spokesperson free from terrorist ties. That position is held despite the common knowledge that Abbas was instrumental in the planning and arranging finances and travel for the Munich Olympics terrorist squads who murdered the Israeli Olympic Team and coaches. It is also known that Abbas has taken numerous other planning and financing position assisting with terrorism. Still, as anyone can see, once Mahmoud Abbas no longer rules in Nablus the ensuing warfare which will come before a new leader emerges guarantees the next leader will be the person with the deepest terror support and a man of weapons, not peace, thus changing nothing.

 

So, even if one could arrange the two main geographic sides settling their differences and expectations through elections, there would be no guarantee the elections would resemble anything representative and is but a pipe dream. Even after complete elections there will be those on either side who will desire contesting the results by assuming whatever power they are capable through force of arms. Then one need address the individual elements within each side and arrange for a period of international control preventing any criminal tampering with the election material such that their preferred candidate, often themselves, wins the positions desired. Then would be the real and actual fun of assuring those elected would survive long enough to assume their office and then actually get to conduct business without the same corruptions taking over the government.

 

That is your Arab Palestinian State, part fascist, part religious fanatics, all violence and tampering with government and all this with an undercurrent of a terror war with Israel driving decision making and diversion of funds to weapons purchases and development. As we have witnessed in Gaza, the allotting of concrete and cement with rebar and much other construction materials being provided under the demands of the European Union for the rebuilding of the residential structures so the hundreds, if not thousands, of homeless Gazans could return to homes and apartments has failed. All that has been built are tunnels under the border into Israel for kidnapping Israelis or attacking Kibbutzim. There was sufficient provisions for the rebuilding of numerous apartment buildings yet almost none were constructed. Instead of apartments or other facilities for the people of Gaza over ninety percent according to estimates was confiscated for use in building tunnels under the border and into Israel to carry out terror attacks. The redirecting of these provisions was committed from under the “watchful” eyes of the United Nations and European Union. What was the suggested solution to this theft and tunnel construction? The forces that are in the positions of power decided that what was required would be a constant stream of construction materials until the apartments and other structures would be completed claiming that not all the material could be stolen if sufficient were passed across the border daily. They also pointed out that the only way that sufficient material could be transferred would be to remove the restraints and allow trucks to cross freely into Gaza from anyplace and at any time. Hamas and Islamic Jihad could not steal that much that fast and that would end their interference with the rebuilding projects. These people are simply brilliant beyond comparison such that it makes one wonder where they find such mentally defective people. The alternative is even more frightening to contemplate, that these people are actively trying to assist in the murder of over six-million more Jews in Shoah II, the wrath of the European Union with the return of the fascist anti-Semites. When the Jews stated emphatically and resolutely, “Never Again,” we meant “Never Ever Again” even if we need take on the entire world, something that often appears to be knocking at our doorstep ever closer each day after the last. Be warned that if that is what the world doth demand of us, then that is where we will stand, but do not expect us to fight alone as there are a few hundreds of millions for whom standing with the Jews this time will be their pleasure though they fathom it as a calling not to be denied.
