David Horowitz Freedom Center has launched the “Jew Hatred on Campus” campaign which produced a list of the “Top Ten” offenders guilty of allowing harassment against Jewish students. The top ten universities played host to numerous incidents of anti-Jewish actions, such as Israeli Apartheid Weeks, interrupting university activities by staging mock “checkpoints” on campus, campus speakers that call for the destruction of the Jewish state, as well as verbal and/or physical harassment and violence against Jewish and pro-Israel students.

 

Jew Hatred on Campus founder David Horowitz stated, “These anti-Semitic incidents occur on university property, often with the support of university funds, despite the fact that such behavior is explicitly forbidden under campus codes of conduct. We made the decision to form ‘Jew Hatred on Campus’ to expose anti-Semitic student groups who support or are associated with known terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and which call for the destruction of the Jewish State. These activities against Jewish and pro-Israel students would not be tolerated by university administrators if they were committed against students from any other ethnic group. But because Jews are the target, they have been largely ignored. It is an obligation of university administrators to recognize and condemn acts of anti-Semitism by campus hate groups and to withdraw campus privileges and university support from them.”

 

Now, without further delay, here are the top ten listings of those colleges and universities found to have the highest antagonism and biases anti-Israel, anti-Zionism and ordinary anti-Semitism which led to a threat based attitude towards Jewish and pro-Israel students endangering the safety of such students. “Jew Hatred on Campus” top ten list reveals some very noticeable names as well as some surprises and also some well-respected educational institutions which permitted and even enabled and abated such animosities leaving a very poisonous atmosphere which stifled and had serious negative impacts according to extensive surveys and various data collection techniques revealed:

1) Columbia University
2) Cornell University
3) George Mason University
4) Loyola University Chicago
5) Portland State University
6) San Diego State University
7) San Francisco State University
8) Temple University
9) University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
10) Vassar College

 

These increases over the last few years have caused some Jewish students to drop from their first choice college or university due to the negative and even hostile environment which made them feel threatened and uncomfortable on campus. As David Horowitz stated, these actions of hatred often occurred “with the support of university funds, despite the fact that such behavior is explicitly forbidden under campus codes of conduct.” Somewhat deeper in his short fact-filled statement he was quoted stating, “These activities against Jewish and pro-Israel students would not be tolerated by university administrators if they were committed against students from any other ethnic group. But because Jews are the target, they have been largely ignored.” Where many have claimed that the reemergence of anti-Semitism in both its traditional form and its closely related new anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism or anti-Israel as denying only the Jewish Peoples not to have the same rights to self-government is definitely another face of the same monster simply hiding behind righteousness when calm discourse breaks down and the full extent of rage becomes revealed and easily identifiable as the pure hatred of the Jewish Peoples. This is an unfortunate hatred for one to face, especially when so young and often unlikely to have sufficient knowledge to defend themselves from the prepared sheet of memorized items with which to launch their diatribe of accusations. Despite reports which make it appear that this is a modern problem which had lain dormant for half a century or longer in much of the world after the extent and the horrors of the Holocaust had been revealed, I had the misfortune being a blonde haired blue eyed Jew which looks gentile to the point that nearly anybody else compared to me would win the look Jewish contest which allowed for many to confide their dislike and even raw hatreds towards Jews. Had anti-Semitism lie dormant for decades, mostly but far from completely as there has been that constant tinge that refused to die which was exemplified in the Chicago suburb of Skokie when the National Socialist Party of America (derived from the American Nazi Party) won its court battle to parade through the heavily Jewish section of town and immediately in front of a Holocaust survivor’s home. Despite winning their court battle, in the end they marched in Chicago instead. Still this was a victory for hate speech, a victory for free speech, and horrifying for one Holocaust survivor. The entire series of events was made into a feature length movie titled “Skokie” and starring Danny Kaye, John Rubinstein, Carl Reiner, Kim Hunter, Eli Wallach and Brian Dennehy.

 

The rapid increase in anti-Semitic hatreds once again and the fact that it appears to be growing fastest on the college and university campuses is distressing in so many ways. Anti-Semitism has begun to spread onto the campus of Brandeis University and City University of New York (CUNY), which are two schools which have a Jewish history spread back to their founding with Brandeis, which was named for the late Louis D. Brandeis, the first Jewish Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, even having Zionism written into its founding mission statement. It was once held that simply looking at our university campuses, you get a glimpse into the future as the students there are the leaders of tomorrow. If that statement is true, then our future as a tolerant, multicultural and intelligent people is doomed. The political correctness found on many college and university campuses is anything but acceptive and often is exclusively dogmatic and selectively defined as to what is politically correct by binding to far leftist ideals and slogans such as group-think to define their efforts. The acceptable ideas on most campuses appears to be a message in a bottle where holding any other view is defined as an abomination. Whether your ideas will be accepted at your university depends on numerous functions and ideas, all of which are just featured prominently on your application.

 

On no subjects is this more evident than the Middle East with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement and Muslim Brotherhood sponsored groups. Be it because the Muslim world, and particularly the Arab Muslim world, donates billions of dollars to build entire buildings and buy other necessities for universities in exchange for control over, or even the establishing of, Departments of Middle East Studies and the chair that goes along with that honor; by literally bribing to gain these positions these departments become centers which spread the ideology of Islam while concurrently defaming Israel positing that Israel is a stolen and illegal entity and that the Jews have no actual claim to anything in the Middle East and that the ancient Hebrews became today’s Arab Muslims or all died out and that the Jews are all interlopers who actually trace their lineage back to a King of the Khazars in the area of Turkey today who had his people adopt Judaism in the eighth century, about the same time as Mohammad established Islam, a very convenient coincidence. Genetic testing has proven that both Ashkenazi and Sephardim Jews have Middle East ancestry. This theory also does not explain why the Sephardim Jews who make up approximately half of the Israeli Jewish population are not entitled to their ancient homelands even if the Ashkenazi might have a questionable claim. Almost all the claims against European Jews do nothing to discount the claim of the Jews, many who were forced from their homes and forced to sacrifice almost all their belongings when their Muslim national leaders forced them out by threat of pogrom or even laws passed forcing them out have no claims to the lands of Israel. Still, this is the subject line taught across the United States and Europe in many universities.

 

Concurrently to these teachings you have the establishing of Muslim and Palestinian groups which have in turn established a series of activities with the singular aim of disestablishing the legality of Israel or at least causing students to question and eventually reject the claims of the Jewish People to their homelands. This is established with a combination of very well practiced and advanced campaigns combined on playing on historically established anti-Semitic tropes, slogans and defamations. They play on themes that the Jews have been chased from every nation as they destroy any nation from within that harbors them. Somehow they are unable to explain why the United States has succeeded despite having the second largest population by size in the world only recently exceeded by the numbers of Jews living in Israel. This last leg of the demonization of the Israel primarily and the Jewish People secondarily completes the efforts to conspire against Israel and the Jews leading to the problems documented by David Horowitz’s “Jew Hatred on Campus” research group and their top ten colleges and universities offenders guilty of allowing harassment against Jewish students. It would be a great hope that this listing might shame some college and university leadership to take steps to remedy this problem but the continuous flow of mostly Saudi Arabian and the other Gulf oil states monies into these universities and colleges that they will remain forever bought as long as oil remains as lucrative as it has proven in our world. The sole path to ending this horrific conspiracy would be for the students themselves to reject this propaganda, but that is something probably beyond hope as they too face the moneyed campaign demonizing Israel and the Jews and for some reason anti-Semitism seems to have its own allure and has throughout the last four-thousand years of human history. It really is a sad but true tale that tells us a lot about the human situation that mankind has never been capable of shaking off this stain on humanity. It is not for lack of knowledge as they know of this evil’s existence, so it must be due to a level of warmth and satisfaction derived by this hatred which assists in fueling its red hot slavery to the concept of the daemon Jew while ignoring the Biblical promises granting the Jewish People the Promised Lands into perpetuity .

The number of demands coming from virtually every direction and so many counter to many of the others, it is remarkable that the leaders of Israel are not even further round the bend and must often feel like they’ve taken that trip down the rabbit hole. First, let’s take Europe, both the European Union and the majority of European governments. The going theme is that Israel needs to take every opportunity to do whatever Mahmoud Abbas, the man of peace if the Europeans are to be believed, demands in order to make peace so that the ever growing and vocal Muslim populations residing in Europe will not be further provoked to demonstrate or act out violently. Israel, according to the Europeans, must never ever take any military steps to defend themselves from Arab attacks or terrorist attacks and must instead sympathize with the desperation which drives the rioting and violence perpetrated regularly by the Arab population within Israeli borders set forth by the San Remo Conference and backed by the United Nations through Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which validated the agreements including the Mandate system set up by the League of Nations at the conclusion of World War I. Two lines of faulty reasoning drive the European demands, the first being the desire to placate and remove any instigations for their Muslim populations to cause violence and secondly they are reverting to their default position steeped in anti-Semitism except this time their anti-Semitism is targeting the Jewish state initially and against their Jewish populations only as a secondary front presumably due to the refusal of the Jewish state to follow the dictates of the European and other betters. The particulars of the Arab demands coming from Mahmoud Abbas and the other Arab leaders are irrelevant to the European demands that they be met as the Europeans would support any demand fully expecting Israel to comply simply for the reason that it would make the situation in Europe presumably less unstable and potentially of turning violent. It does not even matter that even when Israel complied and gave the Arabs complete autonomy and rule over Gaza that such did nothing to lessen the level of Arab violence in Europe and if anything caused it to increase rather than abate. The Europeans simply cannot understand why Israel refuses to capitulate to the Arab demands as the Europeans have done and this angers them as they appear weak and ineffectual in comparison and that is another humiliation which they believe they should not be forced to suffer. Additionally, there are those in Europe such as George Galloway and Richard Faulk and his wife Hilal Elver who simply hate the Israelis for being the nations of the Jews and needs no other reason to fully back the Arab demands and to even attempt to go the Arabs one better in demanding the violent destruction of the Jewish state and it being replaced by an Arab state. The problem is that even should the Arabs destroy Israel tomorrow, the Europeans would continue to have a problem with the restive and growing Arab populations and would have no Israel to blame, but then they would probably transfer their animus to the United States claiming their War on Terror was riling the European Arabs and that the United States should learn from Europe and find an accord with the Arab and Muslim worlds instead of always attempting to force the world to fit the American ideals and ideas.

 

Then there is the United Nations and their love to hate relationship with Israel. Their problem with Israel might have a little something to do with the fact that there is one Israel against the twenty-two Arab states plus another Thirty-four Muslim nations as well as the additional fifty or more nonaligned nations which make up the largest single group of nations within the General Assemble which most often vote as a block in unison. Additionally there are the anti-United States and anti-Israel nations and then the western nations who make up a minority of the General Assembly but still often vote against Israel or at best split half and half on either side depending on the particular vote and the result is there are often easily over one-hundred-twenty-five nations which will vote against Israel on every vote brought before the General Assembly of the United Nations. Then the makeup of the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) there are forty-seven member nations out of which at any given time there will be easily between thirty and thirty-seven member nations which will vote to censure Israel on any issue and the HRC is one of the only bodies in the world which has in its bylaws a requirement that every session must open with a vote condemning Israel before addressing any other business, and this even applies if their entire docket contains additional motions for denouncing Israel for any variety of reasons. Researching the United Nations other than the Security Council, where the five permanent nations have an overriding veto power, and the most denounced and censured nations is Israel with the bulk of these motions originating in either the United Nations Human Rights Council and the United Nations General Assembly where the Arab-Muslim-developing nations block has an overwhelming and unopposable majority one finds a preoccupation with denouncing or investigating Israel and echoing every accusation emanating from the Arabs under Abbas. Some wonder why Israel even bothers to remain as a member of the United Nations as there is little for them to gain from such a membership except that it might possibly become even worse were Israel not represented, though how it could be any worse is beyond my understanding.

 

Now let’s attack the root of the problem and Mahmoud Abbas and the alphabet soup of groups his three organizations presumably encompass and represent. He is the Chairman, President or whatever title he assumes each morning of the following entities: the Palestinian Authority (PA), the Fatah Party (Fatah), the Palestinian Liberations Organizations (PLO). As head of the PLO he oversees in theory the following: Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Hamas, Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Islamic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (IFLP), Islamic Jihad, Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC), Palestinian People’s Party (PPP), Arab Liberation Front (ALF), Palestinian Democratic Union (Fida), Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF), Palestinian Arab Front (PAF) and potentially some we have not heard of or found in research but feel confident will pop up some time in the future to give a list of grievances and demands. Independent of these is Islamic Jihad which along with Hamas, al-Qaeda in Gaza, ISIS in Gaza and a number of criminal families who double as terror enablers and are tasked with some kidnappings for which they have shown a degree of expertise it becomes mind-boggling. With all of these groups to oversee and each with their own leadership and structures and some having multiple leaderships in different countries as example Hamas has Haniyeh who is usually in Gaza, Mashal who is most often in Qatar and the currently most active and tasked with running the Temple Mount daily riots, the riots throughout Jerusalem and much of the terrorism in Judea and Samaria committed by Hamas is Saleh Al-Arouri who is located in Turkey. So, this is a basic view of the infrastructure, now for the really confusing items.

 

Currently there exists the Arab demand before the United Nations Security Council which demands an end to negotiations, more on that in a moment, within one year of the enactment by the Security Council and the removal of Israel from all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem back behind the Green Line, the Armistice Line from 1949 which existed until the Six Day War in June of 1967, before the end of 2017. The result of the negotiations is for the Israelis to be forced to retreat from all the lands occupied illegally by Jordan against the dictates of the San Remo Conference and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter from 1949 until Israel liberated these lands regaining her assigned borders by international law of the Jordan River surrendering their rightful heartlands to Mahmoud Abbas and his merry bands of terrorist groups. The negotiations will result in the same result every negotiation has produced since the Oslo Accords set up the Arab kleptocracy in 1993, with the Arab negotiators making supremacist demands and refusing every Israeli demand. Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the supporting various leaders and functionaries have repeatedly stated that they will never in any manner or form recognize Israel as the Jewish state, they will never relent from their right to resist the occupation which is their code for terrorist activities, they will continue the resistance until all of Palestine has been freed from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, and they demand that every Jew be removed and forbidden from entering Arab lands despite often claiming they will recognize other religions’ rights to visit and have access to their various holy sites while adding later that there are no Jewish holy sites anywhere in Palestine from the River to the Sea because the Jews never lived anywhere near Israel and Israel is an invented occupying colonial western force used as a plot to deny the Arabs their rightful lands in which they have resided for nine thousand years (sometimes the period is less but always more than the three-thousand-five-hundred years which is often the reference for when Abraham and Sarah first arrived in Hevron, but Abbas claims that both Abraham and Sarah along with Moses, Noah, Jesus, Adam and Eve were all Muslims and they were never Jews as the Jews were a recent inventions which he has claimed worked with the Nazis. Senator and former American Ambassador to the United Nations Daniel Patrick Moynihan once stated, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts,” he probably never met Abbas and his enablers. Abbas has recently upped the ante by threatening to break off all relations and cooperation with Israel should the United Nations Security Council not agree to pass his maximalist demands and he is further calling for the vote within a short period of a week or two, meanwhile, there has not appeared to be any great rush thus far at the Security Council plus Abbas has been informed by United States Secretary of State John Kerry that the United States will use their veto on his proposal. Such news only appeared to double Abbas in his demands and insistence that everybody simply must do as he demands or else he will, what was it, oh yes, refuse to cooperate with Israel, refuse to have relations with Israel and demand that Israel assume their role as an occupying power. There is one small problem with Abbas and his reasoning, he has forgotten that without cooperation with Israel there is no Oslo Accords which he had already previously defiled and broken its provisions repeatedly by taking unilateral actions while refusing to actually negotiate while demanding Israel surrender to his every demand otherwise he will, you will love this, join the International Criminal Court (ICC) and bring charges against Israel for crimes against humanity and various war crimes. Of course, the fly in the ointment is that once they join the ICC they can be brought up on charges themselves for every terror attack by any and all the various incarnations atop which sits none other than Mahmoud Abbas, second in command for so long under Yasser Arafat and now the number one terror chief of the entire alphabet soup of terror enclaves.

 

These threats made by Mahmoud Abbas are all aimed not at Israel but at Europe, the United States and anybody else who chooses to panic. There is one simple reason why Abbas will not carry through on a single threat he makes, once he totally refuses to pretend that he will follow the Oslo Accords and leaves everything to Israel he will end up murdered by the terror groups he claims to lead. Then the most viscous of the terror groups will rise to the top by any means necessary and Israel will be freed to liberate the real moderates who are now kept muted and under thumb. The terrorists will be cleansed from the lands of Israel and the Arabs will either be given autonomy in the areas where they hold total majorities such as in Ramallah and Area A and the few Arab enclaves in Area B while the Arabs living in Area C will be granted a path to citizenship, a phrase given a whole definition by the United States immigration policy interests, or an option to sell their properties and resettle in the Arab autonomous regions or emigrate to other countries. The problem then will be placed in the laps of the nations holding refugees which they had kept separate in the hopes of sending them to infiltrate Israel in an attempt to destroy the Jewish majority of Israel. UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) will be dissolved and these refugees will be placed under UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) which will resettle them within the nations where they reside and no longer will their children and their children into perpetuity be classified as refugees, they will have citizenship and be able to have real lives as normal human beings. Abbas and his sons make far too much money, sending funding to the companies, straw entities meant to collect funds under false pretenses, from the billions of dollars given to the agencies for the care and comfort of the Arabs they represent. The Arabs are the real losers to Abbas and cohorts kleptocracy which steals the food and funds right out of their pockets by misappropriating the majority of the funds they are able to lay their hands on. Nothing will change because too many entities are making money on the misery of the Arabs under the rule of the terror entities and by keeping the causes and charges against Israel operating the rest of the world can continue to claim that it is Israel which is at the center of all the problems in the world. Should Israel finally be left to simply live in peace then the entire house of cards would collapse and there would be nearly countless people out of work looking for employment and it is difficult to find position for which the job requirements call for laying blame and lying while stirring up hatred in the name of making themselves the authors and definers of what is correct and what is unacceptable. Further, what would the United Nations do if Israel was no longer the target most acceptable for all blames and denunciations? Their funding requirements would be decreased to half what it takes today or lower. How can we bring this about, any hints?

There is one very basic and simple question which nobody dares to ask and if asked the answer is drowned out by the bellicose cries of Israeli Apartheid is the reason and the debate is settled. How dare you challenge the accepted narrative! Well, when the quiet truth goes orphaned from the conversation, how in all that is holy and logical falls to the side and gets discarded as useless to the discussion. The problem is that the discarded realities are the sole reason that there is an Arab-Israeli conflict today and the truth is so simple and easily validated that it surprises almost every curious individual who inspects the historical records. So, what exactly occurred that spawned the modern discontent which threatens peace and tranquility and has been the source of casualties of a terror war for almost a century. The history goes back to the 1917 Balfour Declaration which declared the existing Jewish rights and claims to the lands on both sides of the Jordan River and on to the Mediterranean Sea just as described in the Old Testament and also recorded by the Persian Empire, the Greek Empire and the Roman Empire as well as written of by the Crusaders, Mark Twain wrote of the area in his treasured work describing life in the Holy Lands and other historic writings and records from the Ottoman Empire and the British Mandate records. The Jews had always resided in this area even if only a remnant of the entirety of the Jewish peoples. They had almost exclusively made up the majority of the population of Jerusalem and a large proportion of the population of Hevron. The return of the Jews to their ancient and historic homelands began about the midpoint of the 1800’s and continued throughout the decades that followed independent of any outside forces. During World War I there was a Palestinian Brigade which was completely made up of Jews from the Holy Lands. These Jews and their bravery were much of the impetus for the Balfour Declaration. Contrary to popular myths, Lord Balfour was not Jewish. The Balfour Declaration was adopted by the winning nations of World War I at a conference named after the city where it was held, the San Remo Conference of 1922. Immediately after the Balfour Declaration and kicking into a higher gear after the San Remo Conference, Arab unrest threatened even the British troops charged with facilitating the conclusions of these two treaties. In an attempt to placate the Arab demands for their own state on the same lands as those reserved by the aforementioned treaties the British made a deal with the Jewish Zionists. They guaranteed that all of the lands of the British Mandate west of the Jordan River would be preserved into perpetuity for the Jewish State guaranteed by the British Crown in exchange for permitting a state for the Arab residents of the British Mandate, also referred to as the Palestine Mandate, for the Arabs in over seventy-five percent of the lands which covered all the lands east of the Jordan River to the Iraqi border. Thus was Jordan born initially called Transjordan. The Jewish State was not initially declared as it was presumed that over time Jews would eventually become a majority. Reacting to Arab pressures the British placed one difficulty after a blocking of Jewish immigration on and on assuring all the time that an Arab majority remained preventing the declaration of the Jewish State. Eventually came World War II and once again there was a Palestinian brigade which was constituted of Jews from the Holy Lands. Once again the British promised to form the Jewish State immediately after the war. Again they broke their promises to the Jews and did everything in their powers to prevent the Jews from Europe, the refugees of the concentration camps, from reaching Israel instead herding them into what could be called concentration camps without the crematorium. Eventually, even the British were unable of preventing the Jews from making their way to Israel, to what they believed to be the only salvation which would provide for Jewish freedom and a future.

 

At long last the United Nations in its formation took on the promise for founding a Jewish State when they internalized the edicts from the San Remo Conference and the Mandate System when under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter took those specifics under the auspices of the United Nations to finalize the ideals and ideas of these historic treaties. This is where the real sources for the problems today became inevitable despite any and all efforts to mediate an equitable resolution, the one thing the Arab world could not accept. The United Nations General Assembly on November 29, 1947 made a nonbinding resolution proposing an even division between Arab and Jewish States within the lands remaining from the British Mandate west of the Jordan River. The Arab League simply need only accept the offer and the Arabs within these lands would have gained their nation on the vast majority of the choicest lands west of the Jordan River. The Jewish relegated lands would consist half being the Negev Desert, a coastal strip from Tel Aviv to Haifa and a small section in the northern ridges of Judea and Samaria leaving the entire farmlands of the Galilee as part of the Arab declared state. The Arab League met and issued their response to this proposition. They refused to accept the formation of a Jewish State no matter how segmented, no matter how much was wastelands and desert, no matter any area as they refused to recognize any size of Jewish State. The Arab League refused to accept half of the lands simply because they refused to accept a Jewish States of any dimensions or size. The Zionist Jews agreed anxiously and willing to accept anything as their own lands from where they could begin to build and make a future for themselves and to form a state in which all Jews could eventually come to and make their homes as a people. From the declaration from the General Assembly of the United Nations the Arabs living in the lands west of the Jordan River began a series of pogroms attempting to destroy any chance for the formation of a Jewish State. This was the beginning of the Arab war efforts to destroy the Jewish State both before it was founded and ever since. Despite the Arab riots of Hevron where Jewish businesses and homes were set to the torch and dozens of Jews were murdered and scores injured. In response to the violence the British took harsh actions and relocated the Jews to Jerusalem gifting Hevron to the Arab rioters. This led inexorably to the Arab riotous pogroms in Jerusalem where the British again stood aside initially only intervening when the Arab rioters threatened the British troops themselves.

 

Finally came May 15, 1948 and Israel declared her independence and was invaded by the armies of more than a half dozen Arab nations and numerous independent militias including the one fanatical group led by the Mufti of Jerusalem who had recently returned after spending almost the entirety of World War II as a guest of the Nazis and supervising the Muslim troops who were left to cleanse the Balkan States and did so with efficiency and a great zeal pitted in hatred leading to brutality that even shocked the Nazi troops in the area to the point that they attempted to distance themselves from those troops under the Mufti’s command. By the eventual end of the conflict which continued off and on for almost two years only coming to an end in 1949, this led to Israel holding the borders referred to as the Green Line, the 1967 Lines. These were actually formed as the 1949 Armistice Lines which the Arab League demanded they be denoted as simply Armistice Lines and never to be used as a border as to allow them to be a border would mean they had recognized the existence of the Jewish State of Israel. From 1949 through to June of 1967 Jordan had control of Judea and Samaria, renamed the West Bank, and Egypt held the Gaza Strip. During that entirety of near eighteen years there was absolutely no attempt made to form an Arab state by any name as Muslims already held the lands so all was as they perceive it should be. The PLO was founded with the assistance of the Soviet Union and the KGB in 1964 with the called for in its charter the liberation of Palestine by which they meant all of Israel as there was no occupied lands before 1967 unless Israel is the lands you consider occupied. That is the dirty little secret, Israel is the occupied land at any size, be it including Judea and Samaria, the West Bank, or be it before June 1967 and Israel inside the Green Line without Judea or Samaria, the West Bank, and without Gaza.

 

Across Europe countries are recognizing an Arab state without any declared border being declared by Mahmoud Abbas or any other Arab leader. The one constant that is known is that should Abbas and the Arabs be granted a state and its borders are restricted to the areas of Gaza, Judea and Samaria outside of the 1967 Lines that they refuse to consider such recognition as being a reason to end the conflict with Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has made a point as part of his refusals of offers which included as much as ninety-five percent of Judea and Samaria and all of Gaza with land swaps to make up all differences, he has refused these offers because they include the end of hostilities. The problem with the making of an Arab state west of the Jordan River by any name is meaningless as far as ending the conflict as long as it allows for the remaining existence of a Jewish State. As long as Israel continues to exist the Arabs will continue to make claims that the Jews are occupying their land. The problem has never been the lack of an Arab homeland; it has been the existence of the Jewish lands. All one need do to realize this truth is to peruse MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, translations of speeches made by Abbas and his fellow Arab leaders as well as the speeches of leading Arabs from throughout the Arab world and one will realize the reality that it is the existence of Israel that infuriates the Arabs and the destruction of Israel is their sole raison d’être. Perhaps the European governments might ask Abbas and the rest of the Arab leadership exactly what borders they are willing to accept to end the violence and terror war before they decide to grant them a state which is undefined and left to their wildest hopes to define after the fact. The response would likely be informative and potentially surprising. But the Europeans are simply attempting to feed the alligator hoping they will be eaten last and they would gladly sacrifice Israel for fifteen minutes reprieve from their eventual self-imposed coming fate. Israel does not plan on accepting the role of sacrificial lamb for the continued existence of Europe for an extra few months or so. Perhaps Europe and the whole world would be better served to repair their own houses rather than attempt to sacrifice Israeli homes. Israeli homes are not up for being sacrificed no matter what the eventual desires of the rest of the world may decide. Israel was before, Israel is now, and Israel will remain after.
