As the World Burns

 

The Arab Spring started with the self-immolation of a vegetable barker over his frustrations with the insurmountable legal requirements and licensing which made making a profit impossible and expressed his feeling of utter hopelessness of his life in one blazing protest sparking a wave of protests which were to spread. The government of Tunisia fell within days followed by Egypt with an assisting push and a shove by United States President Obama pushing Egyptian President Mubarak out the door and all but guaranteed the Muslim Brotherhood would take control of Egypt. Little was known at the time that this had been the design by President Obama. The so-called Arab Spring rolled into Libya next and with a great amount of assistance from NATO powers Muammar Gaddafi was knocked from power almost solely due to the air strikes and other NATO assistance but the plan for any reconstruction failed leaving Libya broken into its tribal elements and some areas under the control of the influence of al-Qaeda and other areas under Islamic State with the rest under tribal control which may prove more stable a practice than the imposed state system from Sykes Picot, the one complaint made by ISIS before they decided to go on Jihad as the New Caliphate which had some degree of merit, but lust for power always overrules sensibility. The next stops were Yemen and Syria. These appear to be currently the play of power of Iran using Yemen to gain control of vital waterways off of southwestern end where the Red Sea exits into the Gulf of Aden and on into the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean all through the choke point known as Bab-el-Mandeb which is the name of the straights with which Iran wrests control for all shipping traffic through the red Sea including Suez Canal traffic and sea traffic from Israel and Jordan coming south through the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea on to Africa or Asia. Closure of this vital waterway would provide a causes belli of war should Iran block this waterway bringing Iran in direct contention of Europe, the far east and much of commercial shipping which would normally use the Suez Canal. Such a blockage could rapidly escalate out of control with nation after nation declaring their rights being challenged and commerce being directly affected adversely.

 

But the Arab Spring quickly became the Arab Winter as Egypt had a second set of massive demonstrations even larger than before which were more widely attended including students and businesspeople and others from nearly every walk of life which eventually led to the Egyptian military replacing the sitting government which had been on a fast track to implement Sharia, at least the interpretation of Sharia by the Muslim Brotherhood which they would have inevitably used to place themselves in the sole position of appointing the future Presidents and members of parliament thus giving themselves dictatorial powers. These new moves came to attempt to change the military hierarchy which was one step too far and the military balked and took down President Morsi and his government claiming to be doing so in the name of the people. Meanwhile there was a reshuffling of the Tunisian government to make it more representative of the people and guarding against trading the old dictatorial governance for religious dictatorial governance, a similar but less drastic measure than the one necessitated in Egypt. And the demonstrations began in Syria but unlike the previous demonstrations the one in Syria did not receive the full and hardy backing of the Western nations thus the peoples demonstrations slowly morphed into a disastrous civil conflict which itself morphed into a large Sunni against Shiite war front which spawned the Islamic State which took control over a sizeable area of Syria and Iraq. The latest development has been the introduction of serious air power and missile assaults by the Russians in defense of their naval base at Latakia, Syria and in support of their chosen ally, Bashir al-Assad and the introduction of IRGC troops, the special forces of the Iranian military.

 

Eventually the Egyptian governance worked its way to what all hope will be regular, open, free and fair elections on schedule with the results truly representative of the Egyptian electorate. Hopefully the same can be said for Tunisia which also appears to have settled from its early days as the lead of the changes which swept much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). There were also the unsuccessful or muted. The first were any demonstrations in Saudi Arabia or any of the nearby GCC countries such as Bahrain, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. There potentials for demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, where a number of Shiite Imams had given sermons to emotionally prepare their adherents to challenge the authorities, many ran out into the streets that fateful afternoon and looked up and down the street and realizing that they were cut off at the end of the block at both ends by security forces, armed so as not to need to discuss principles; so the Shiites calmed themselves and went home without incident in virtually every case and any case where the reaction was different was squelched so fast that it made no news. There was one exception which was Bahrain. Bahrain is ruled by a Sunni Monarch but is predominately Shiite and this led to street demonstrations of a severity which the Monarch was not willing to use the force which would have been required to put down the rioting demonstrators but also could not allow the lawlessness to continue. This required the King Hamad Ibn Isa Al Khalifa to make a call to his friends over the causeway in Saudi Arabia for assistance. The one thing known to the people of Bahrain that should the Saudis come to the rescue of their King, then they may have gone a bit too far and their time left to continue their actions is limited to as long as it takes the Saudi Arabian military to arrive to restore order. This was a particularly large demonstration which almost lasted four hours until they saw a disturbance heading towards the Island of Bahrain along all six lanes of the causeway between the Saudi Arabian mainland and their Island, three lanes in each direction, except this was all six lanes heading for the Island. As the vehicles came closer it became obvious these were Abrams tanks and Armored Personnel Carriers which meant that unremitting and lethal force was coming to their demonstration. This took the wind out of their sails and quickly the demonstrators dispersed rather quickly and peaceably with a small number of fools not heeding the obvious. They were quickly subdued and turned over to the Bahraini officials and the Saudis returned home a week or two later with a small rotation of forces remaining for a month or two as a reminder.

 

There were some rather sizeable demonstrations in Iran where pleadings were chanting for President Obama to assist their cries for freedom and representative governance. There was no reply from President Obama as he had this plan where he would be the one to bring Iran in from out in the cold through negotiations with the Supreme Leader. This plan had no room for new representative governance or for the people’s revolution. President Obama’s plan called for him bringing the previously unapproachable and immovable when it comes to that which he believes and the way he rules and the desires and directions he wishes to take the nation are completely unchallenged as his word is treated as if it were the words from Allah himself. This would eventually play out well after the demonstrators were routed by the Basenji Militias and other extreme police and security forces. The universities were put under a lockdown with security and Islamic observance groups patrolling the dorms and grounds. The end result was an additional term listening to the rantings of President Ahmadinejad, violently put down democracy demonstrations, and after a painfully extracted and pathetic set of surrenders which may or may not be finished and a nuclear treaty with a ruling elite who are not exactly known for keeping promises, meaning what they say or doing what they say or in the end having said what they said as everything is negotiable and even the meaning is open for an ever changing series of interpretations even to the point that what they say means exactly what they mean it to mean at the moment they say it. Deals with the mad hatter or Cheshire cat would be more trustworthy, and didn’t we decide that the President was a lookalike for the Cheshire Cat such that we labeled him Cheshire man as in the picture below. Perhaps that picture may be the closest thing to an accurate depiction of the reality dealt with in making the Iran Nuclear Deal.

The problems from the Arab Winter have just begun. The real problem is still a full generation away, a good fifteen years before everything begins to blossom and explode upon the Western world. Presumably, Iran will legally be capable of perfecting and testing ballistic missiles which will give them all the time they could possibly need as they will be completely free to produce, or should we say finally assemble the necessary parts to make their nuclear warheads using the technology perfected by their scientists or by following the methods used by either North Korea and thus be completely ready to produce deliverable warheads using such designs or be using their own designs, whichever way they decide to branch into nuclear warhead designs. Iran can take their time and while working on their nuclear warhead designs and production they can begin the hardest part of the challenge facing them, the proselytizing within and outside of the Islamic communities in Europe and the United States and other Western World Nations to drastically increase the numbers of Shiite Muslims more so amongst those living outside MENA though there will be some moves outside of the ardently Sunni states such as the GCC, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey (though Turkey might be a more ripe for change than many believe). This will be accomplished with the monies freed up by the Iran nuclear deal and target the young who may find Shiite Islam’s dynamic Jihadi strengths more attractive than the more sedate Sunni Islam which is a more conservative approach.

 

The next three years will see between thirty-five-thousand and fifty-thousand “refugees” from MENA invading Europe and sending a fair number to the United States and Canada, especially if these nations remain under leftist control, especially the immigrations offices. Do not get me wrong, the majority, even the vast majority of these will be actual refugees as almost any family which can manage to get to Europe or the United States, the Western world, the first world, such a transit would be a welcome improvement in their lives as even the poorest family in the Western World live in a level almost unimagined other than for the wealthiest in their nations in much of the MENA world. Over the rest of the decade these refugees will likely repatriate with another ten to fifteen people per family. Eventually there will literally be an army ready to impose Sharia across all of Europe and there will be swaths of land in the United States which will be “no-go zones” just as they have in areas around many British, French, Swedish and other European countries where police and even fire and rescue personnel refuse to enter except in force, will populate many areas around numerous cities and training areas may be found in the countryside acreages around Europe and the United States. What many are unaware of is that there exist such training ‘cities’ outside numerous cities in the United States already and these ‘cities’ are well guarded and only allow Islamists known to their group and they hold firearms training and some even hold tactical training and live-fire exercises.

These are the stark realities facing Western Society which the governments are ignoring at their people’s own peril. Why these known camps are being left to their own devices while the FBI infiltrates neighborhood militias and paramilitary militias which often consist of some friends who are ex-military and enjoy target shooting and having paintball outings or even some which simply are reenacting Civil War or Revolutionary War battles. The future is not yet written in stone but it had been stenciled into wet cement and it is starting to dry and will take a while to cure thereafter but the stencils are still malleable, their final story will be up to the people if they decide to take government into their own direction and this may mean many people making whatever sacrifices are necessary and perhaps work for or make a needed new political party or influential branch of a party like the Tea Party had started to make inroads but it will take a long term commitment and it will take families deciding the time has come for regular families to take charge of the governments such that the governments will serve the future of the Western World and the family unit with an emphasis on control of the education of the children as they will be the future and if they are not better prepared than we were, then there will be even less hope, and hope is all there is right now and we cannot lose hope or our future.

Islamic State is not the Main Threat, Iran Is

 

Islamic State is not yet a problem so large it cannot be dealt with in a matter of weeks, not months, not years, but weeks. President Obama was on the right page when he referred to them as the Junior Varsity and he ought to know as he armed the Varsity with his Iran agreement. Granted, as far as any intelligence which has been revealed to any source we have found would admit; Iran does not yet have a practical deliverable nuclear device. Sure Iran could build a nuclear bomb and possibly a thermonuclear bomb, a hydrogen bomb. The problem they face is twofold. First is the device would be crude by modern standards and would be too cumbersome for placing on a missile and Iran does not have any heavy bombers which are able to penetrate any radar nor have the range to strike the United States. Secondly, the device would be trackable by nuclear detection satellites and thus there would be no element of surprise and at least the United States military and probably others would have early warning should such a concentrated amount of nuclear fuel be moved; and all a nuclear device is, is a concentrated amount of highly enriched nuclear fuel which can easily be pushed to critical mass. The only way that Iran could currently conceal a nuclear device would be to build the device sufficiently deeply underground and then contain it in lead or other means of preventing its detection by satellites and other means, load it onto a ship and sail it to its target detonating it as soon as the first alarms were sounded by the detection devices currently in place at most major shipping docks. The problem will be what Iran develops within the next three to five years as they master miniaturization thus making a high yield thermonuclear device deliverable on any of their missiles, particularly any of their suborbital and low Earth orbital missiles which by then will have the capability to strike anywhere on the planet.

 

We know from monitoring their launches that Iran has, as has North Korea, mastered the launch angle which the Russians first proposed and the Chinese were informed of this weakness who then passed it to the North Koreans who have shared this information with Iran that the United States defensive grid and radars all point northward where a perceived nuclear attack by the Soviets was feared would strike going over the North Pole. Thus, should Iran develop a nuclear warhead and the missile with which to deliver it all they would need is a missile capable of crossing Antarctica and coming upon the United States crossing the Gulf of Mexico and within a minute detonating approximately three-hundred miles over St Louis-Kansas City area using a low yield high EMP device, exactly what intelligence from numerous sources has indicated Iran has concentrated most of their research into manufacturing, and thus crippling the entire North American grid overloading well over three-quarters of the main transformers to overload and potentially explode and minimally melt down and knocking their delivery systems out of order for the foreseeable future and which would take decades to replace causing an estimated eighty-five to ninety percent of the human life to die as a consequence. Making matters worse, the only nations currently producing such transformers are Germany and Japan. That, my friends, is the real nature of the threat to the United States and all her allies counting on her promises of defense and protection. Where will those allies sit when the United States is incapable of accessing her satellites to provide intelligence and other warnings? That is the big question.

 

The astonishing is the price of hardening the power grid, the protecting it from an EMP attack by any enemy as well as protecting it from solar coronal mass ejections (CMEs) as well as from storm damage would cost between a half of a billion dollars to as high as twenty-five billion dollars depending on how much of the grid one would desire to protect. The higher figure would protect the entirety of the electrical grid leaving only what is deemed the “last mile” vulnerable which is the lines coming to the poles and small transformers for home delivery vulnerable which thus would make a single strike EMP device a local failure of power which could be repaired in months, not years, and would effect a relatively small area. This higher price would include hardening the parts of the grid delivering electricity to hospitals, government communications centers, phone company service, military facilities, police and fire service and other vital systems. Granted, it would still be a disaster for an EMP event be it a solar storm or a nuclear or other EMP attack but it would be survivable. If work began this month the hardening could be mostly complete and the grids switched over to the new below ground delivery system within five years, it would only take funding and Congress is aware of this situation having monitored its price since it was first researched in the 1950s. Had the monies used to research and re-research this problem and its solutions have been used after the third assessment to installing the obviously necessary fix, it would have been accomplished long ago and the discussion would be ended. The problem with making the necessary repairs and alterations to the system is simple, once repaired it is no longer a campaign issue and everybody knows that a campaign issue, especially one so universally accepted as common sense, is far better than a problem resolved. The issue is that nobody can take credit for repairing a problem beyond maybe two or three election cycles (two years so for a Senator it would be one election cycle) while leaving a vital problem which is a winning position for both parties to continue to need addressing can be a campaign winner for decades upon decades if left wanting, which do you think the idiots in Washington would want more, the repair or the perpetual campaign device where incumbents can point to their votes to research an EMP vulnerability one more time or their opponent claiming they have ignored the problem too many times when it should have been addressed. Almost a no-brainer, a recurring issue is far more useful than any repair of a major vulnerability, obviously. If the American public, even as small as ten percent, were to make the actual repair work their main priority and establish an NGO to lobby Congress and the White House these repairs would be financed and gone within one Senatorial election cycle (six years). But of course this is not as sexy a topic as say neutral-gendered public restrooms.

 

The vulnerability of the North American electrical grid is actually becoming a vital issue as it would take ordering some fifty new transformers to begin the main work such that as the system is hardened simply by burying it twenty yards underground, it would require less but placing it that deep would allow for almost any building to take place without causing disruptions caused by new buildings construction needing to rerun electrical grid wiring. In urban environments and presumed expansion of large metropolises the depth could be increased placing it beyond any conceivable construction projects with the possible exception of an underground city, another idea from the fifties we have not seen as the science magazines envisioned along with cities under the ocean and flying cars, though progress is good on the flying cars and not so much the others as people like being able to walk outside and feel the breeze on their cheeks and the warmth of the sun while taking in some rays on a summer day. Under ground and under water make these little pleasures a tad more difficult, not insurmountable, but more difficult. So, the question we need to be asking the American public is, when are they going to take up this as their main concern every election cycle thus letting Congressional Representatives and Senators alike know that if they are not actively pushing and bringing legislation to the floor every six months then they will be voted out of office. Make them accountable for having the monies granted to the states to harden their electrical grids. Furthermore, they must have a date set for all work to be completed, granted if the deadline is five years it will take fifteen, and have the Department of Energy (DOE) follow up and report to Congress and the White House every six months. Make completing such a project a national priority, that is completion and not debate and researched, as the research has been done and redone and done again ten times over and the time to implement is far beyond overdue and needs to be done, not still overdue.

 

Both North Korea and Iran have been furthering their research into an EMP attack allowing them to strike the North American electrical grid and then sit back and watch the United States and Canada suffer a blow placing them back into the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries at the very start of the electronic age and widely distributed power systems being built. Knowing this threat is rapidly becoming a reality and the race should be on whether such an attack can be mounted successfully against the hardening of the electrical grid getting it sufficiently far along to prevent most of the damage from such an attack. Intelligence reports have already shown the advances, and sizeable they are, of North Korea and Iran, with assistance from China, making the preparations to allow for such an attack. Congressional studies having been done at least a dozen times and still no action on what should be and is a federal responsibility yet still there are no plans being put into motion with only Texas making and executing the initial phases for hardening the electrical grid should alarm the public into demanding action. The race is an obvious one placing the Iranian ability to deliver a nuclear or electrical bomb as an EMP attack over central United States against the United States hardening the North American power grid. Thus far only North Korea and Iran are participating in this race while the United States is still rubbing its hands together treating hardening the electrical grid as a perpetual campaign issue to never be resolved as it serves them for the problem to persist. Where are the people and their demanding that this problem be resolved? Perhaps if somebody were to get the public involved and demand, then this project can be completed before Iran or North Korea uses the vulnerability as a weapon, destroying the United States by taking out their ability to deliver generated electricity to the general public. It is obvious that posing this as a threat to life as we know it has not engendered any serious concern so it is time to strike a blow below the belt, as it were. There need be a large effort on social media informing the American people that should an EMP wave strike their electrical grid, be it a solar flare or an attack by North Korea or the soon to go nuclear Iran that they would no longer have cell phone service, no more texting, and no more following the Kardashian on the web or watching Game of Thrones on Television and no more microwave dinners, perhaps then they would wake up and smell the odor coming from the unpowered refrigerators. Just saying. What will it take to wake the American people to demand this be taken seriously by their Representatives and Senators in Congress and whoever will be in the White House next to get-er-done! Iran is counting on the United States to remain unaware and unconcerned in order for them to strike and wipe the United States off the world’s scene leaving them as the inheritors of the world.

 

Iran could squash the Islamic State in under six months and under six weeks with the assistance of Putin and the Russian military. That was proven by the cruise missile attack made this week by Russia from ships in the Caspian Sea striking Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo provinces of Syria causing heavy casualties to Islamic State forces stationed in these areas. Further, you will note the lack of concern over the use by the Russian forces in Syria of disproportional force as the Islamic State cannot launch cruise missiles from ships, they have no ships. Further, where is the concern over collateral damage, civilian casualties or of causing collective punishment and targeting innocents? Where are the perpetually concerned activists who flock to every court in the world which will hear them, storm the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council as well as the United Nations Human Rights Council and every NGO concerned with human rights as well as the editorial page of the New York Times and other leftist news networks, newspapers and other media? Oh, excuse me, I thought this was Israeli cruise missiles, go back to sleep, nothing to see here. After all, it is not as if anybody in Moscow would care one iota about any rulings in any court, commission, council or NGO even if one were to have the nerve to stand up and accuse Russia of war crimes, come-on, give me a break. So, in case we were not paying attention to the entire Middle East conundrum, Russia and Iran are cutting a swath out from the easternmost borders of Iran facing India through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon thus establishing and cementing in place a Shiite Crescent which we defined as one of the main designs the Iranians placed in their list of priorities, even first on the list right ahead of nuclear weapons and using them to rid the world of the Great and Little Satans, the United States and Israel, thus the EMP coverage above. This Iranian Shiite Crescent would include all of Iraq except for the Kurdish regions which they would name as Iraq as the rest of Iraq would have been absorbed into Iran along with Syria and Lebanon, though Syria would be managed by Bashir al-Assad and Lebanon would be a semiautonomous state owing fealty to Iran (see map below).

 

 

This is the desired and long sought Iranian Shiite Crescent across the Middle East reaching from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea after Islamic State Defeat and Iran Surge Retaking Syria for Bashir al-Assad with Hezballah retaining their iron-fist control over Lebanon and the Iraqi Shiites retaining their hold on the southern half of Iraq. This could very well be the starting positions for a final World War resulting in exchanges of nuclear weapons before the end is reached. This map also depicts the areas bordering the Iranian influence which could become the future red lines and the trip wire for a horrific conflagration, exactly what the Twelvers desire to bring back the Twelfth Imam and the Islamic Messiah who will lead them to finally realize their destiny of world conquest. Despite what many in the West view as an outdated and dead idea, the Iranian leadership dreams of world conquest and desire to that end.

Despite what many in the West view as an outdated and dead idea, the Iranian leadership dreams of world conquest and desire to that end.

 

 

The main force blocking the Iranian dreams are held by the anti-Assad forces and the Islamic State. Currently these two forces are fighting one another which Iran sees as to their advantage and as military doctrines point out, when two of your enemies are fighting each other, arm both and sit back and watch. This is exactly what Iran is doing while Russia attacks both keeping either from attaining a victory. When the time is ripe and the Iranians are ready to spread their voodoo that they do so well, their moves will be signaled by their overrunning the Islamic State and wiping out the opposition to al-Assad returning him to power where he can rule over the rubble. When the Iranian Army, aided by shock forces from the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps), crash into the Islamic State from both sides aided by United States and Russian air power with the Russian operating within Syria and the United States striking in Iraq, then they will have aided Iran in establishing what they feel is required to pursue goals at the next level. These attacks will also serve a secondary objective, the acquisition of Abrams Main Battle Tank which they will be able to reverse engineer its best features and develop the next Iranian Heavy Battle Tank ending their reliance of Russia for their main battle tanks. What the world need understand is that Iran is not aiming for simple hegemony over the Middle East surpassing Israel in military strength; their intent is replacing the United States as the main superpower of the planet. The majority of military assessments of Iran place their aspirations as being to simply be the main power in the Middle East. Where that is their immediate goal, it is a goal on their way to far loftier goals. Once they assume the role of superpower in the Middle East it is their intent to take control of the GCC oil fields and of the two holy cities of Mecca and Medina thus claiming the title of the central force in Islam. Should Iran establish these facts on the ground it will amaze most military and political researchers on how fast Shiite Islam completely eclipses Sunni Islam. There will be a rush for Sunnis to declare their perpetual and complete devotions to Shiite Islam and Shias will be the predominant form of Islam practiced in the world though the majority of these new Shia Muslims practices will almost assuredly appear no different than their practices under Sunni, only their adherence to the Ayatollah over any other religious leader and their imams will slowly transit their practice to celebrate the Shia holidays and follow Shiite rules and power structure.

 

Even the fighters from the Islamic State might see it as to their advantage to switch sides and serve Iran if given half the chance. It is exactly what Osama bin Laden stated in video tape released after he attacked the United States on September 11. 2001, “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature, they will like the strong horse… We hit her the first hit and the next one will hit her with the hands of the believers, the good believers, the strong believers. By Allah it is a great work. Allah prepares for you a great reward for this work.” Iran is the coming unarguable strong horse with Shia Islam following right behind attracting the worship of the soon to be majority Shiites over the has-been Sunni should Iran get half the chance to complete their current plans. In a warped manner, Islamic State has served a two-fold purpose of stymying the Iranian plan for a quick destruction of the anti-Assad forces in Syria and completing his crescent of power across the entirety of the Middle East and then being able to center their attention on the oil fields in Kuwait and northern Saudi Arabia as well as the oil fiefdoms along the Arabian coastlines which would allow Iran to tie a direct route to Yemen allowing for Iranian forces, likely mostly from the ranks of the IRGC to assault the western edge of Saudi Arabia gaining a front along the Red Sea, cementing their control over what passes through the Suez Canal and thus controlling one of Egypt’s main sources of income, as well as capturing Mecca and Medina and with them control over the world’s one and one third billion Muslims. Once Iran has gained that much influence over the Islamic world the rest of the world, in their thoughts, is simply ripe for them to pluck off the lowest hanging branches of the tree. If anybody is still seeking the blue turban mentioned so predominantly in one of the Nostradamus quatrains:

 

 

Century 9 – Quatrain 73
The king enters Foix wearing a blue turban,
he will reign for less than a revolution of Saturn;
the king with the white turban, his heart banished to Byzantium,
Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius.

Dans Foix entrez Roi ceiulee Turban,
Et regnera moins revolu Saturne,
Roi Turban blanc Bisance cœur ban,
Sol, Mars, Mercure pres de la hurne.

 

Iran has a master plan to become the new master race replacing their friends from World War II, the Nazis. In 1935, Reza Shah asked foreign delegates to use the term Iran replacing their historical name of Persia. Despite most of the world having referred to Iran as Persia, the people of Iran, since the Sassanid Dynasty when it was called Iranshahr or Empire of Iran, had been using the name Iran, as it translates in English, in conversation and whenever referring to the people as well as the nation internally. It was considered quite interesting that the timing of the request from Persian to now be referred to by the old but not as ancient name of Iran as it coincided with the rise to power of Adolph Hitler, the Nazi Party and the concept of a master race called the Aryans which translates to Farsi as Iran. Despite the history behind the name, changing the name from Persia to Iran, meaning Aryan, was quite strange and could only be determined by the Western powers as depicting the preference of the Persian, now Iranian, leadership to the Axis powers and not the allies. For many decades, Iran and the German Empire had cultivated ties, partly as a counter to the imperial ambitions of Britain and the Russian Empires but which proved problematic to the allied powers as World War II placed the necessity for taking sides, especially in the oil rich Middle East. This was where the long established friendship between Iran and Germany caused concern which was the reasoning behind the Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran from August 25 through September 17, 1941 thus preventing Iranian oil from giving Germany the lifeblood of war, petroleum for the engines of aircraft, armor and vehicles of all sorts, the very necessities for a modern military even during World War II. In conclusion, Iran has a similar vision as did Germany in the lead up to World War II. Iran now sees themselves as the new chosen to rule the globe, and yes, there are those who still believe in world conquest. All one need do is listen to the speeches translated from the first Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini or his successor the current Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The western world ignores the warning signs at their own risk, and a great risk that is. When somebody joins in on a group chant of “Death to America, Death to Israel!” then both America and Israel should sit up and pay attention. Israel has shown that she is and has been paying attention for quite some time but the United States appears to be more focused on Israel and the demand that they give back to the Arabs every inch of the land they demand and yes the leadership of the United States, especially in the State Department, are fully aware that the Palestinian and Arab demand is for every inch of Israel with the Jews removed by whatever means are available. If no nation on Earth will take them in then the other solution must be implemented, another final solution to a Jewish problem. The Jews have been down this road before despite the evidence out of Tel Aviv which appears to be adamantly ignorant and mislead by leftists of the world uniting in declaring Israel the next Palestine and the Israeli Jews and Christians as the next genocidal massacre as the world shrugs and claims they did not see it coming and were planning on mobilizing but they took too long, so bad, how sad, you western-world cad. The one overlooked item is the Jews who remember history, all three and a half thousand years of history and we have made a solemn vow, Never Again!! Just in case you missed it,

Arabs Made the Choice Clear May 15, 1948

 

As every Jewish day begins at sunset the evening before rather than at midnight, the evening of May 14, 1948 began the celebrations of the declaration of the state of Israel. The population was a mix of various groups including but not limited to the Jews and Arabs who had resided side by side in peace for centuries in the Holy Lands, the Zionists who had been arriving since around 1850 with a sizeable increase after World War II as Jewish survivors had no other place to go, and the Arabs who had flocked to the area since the return of the Jews in a search for a brighter future for their families as the soon to be declared Jewish State had an improved economic outlook compared to her neighboring nations. These Arabs arrived from as close as Syria, Jordan and Egypt and as far as Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen, the Sudan, Libya, Tunisia and even Algeria. There were separate and mixed celebrations into the night followed the next morning with seven Nations’ armies and attached militias invading from every border thus beginning what was planned to be a quick war of annihilation. There were other fighting that marred the night mostly along the periphery where Jews and Arabs lived together or as neighbors in villages a mere minutes’ walk apart. Some of these fights were of the greatest of sadness as these were Arab against Arab where the Arab villages which had decided to stay and join in building the new state were slaughtered by fellow Arabs and even some by their own neighbors or even families. The breaking of dawn made the Arab choice obvious as Jews found neighboring Arab villages mostly barren or strewn with corpses of those they knew as friends. There were two groups of Arabs remaining in Israel alive the next morning; those Arabs who truly desired to build the new state and those who planned on supporting the coming genocidal slaughter by striking at Israeli fighters from behind their lines and slaughtering the women and children who were not fighting on the front lines. The duplicity of those who remained only to aid the genocidal attacks from the seven nations’ Armies that morning of May 15, 1948 was the response of the Arab world as set forth by the “Arab League which declared that all Israel and those who sided with the Jews were to die and the land cleansed of this, as they regarded the forming of Israel, endemic contagion, this blighted pestilence which marred the purity of the surrounding Arabiya and had to be purged and scoured clean resettled by a more accepting Arab State which posed no insult or injury to the Arab communal pride, the Arab uniformity which they demanded be restored. That was the initial and the continuing view of the Arab world and that view persists to this day though it has transformed and adapted so as to form a more favorable and sympathetic front, though there has been no change of view from the Arab world or Arab League as is most evident in voting of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

 

The United Nations was not always against the Jewish State as they set forth a suggestion for a compromise which took the lands from which seventy-eight percent had been carved off of the original lands intended by the League of Nations for the formation of the Jewish State. The League of Nations validated the San Remo Conference formation of the Mandate system which was further agreed upon in the Treaty of Sèvres which established mandate lands under the guardianship of each of the victorious allied nations dividing up the defeated Ottoman Empire lands along with the Sykes-Picot Agreement which dealt with the remainder of lands of the Middle East and redrew the lines in eastern Europe with the British Mandate presumable set aside for the Jewish State. The ink had barely dried on the Sane Remo Conference and the Treaty of Sèvres when the British posed to the Zionist Congress, the Jewish ruling entity which represented the interests of the future Jewish State, proposing for the lands east of the Jordan River be repurposed, some might claim stolen by right of might as the British had an army and the Zionist Congress had quill pens and parchment, for an Arab State named Transjordan where the Arabs could have self-rule under the guidance, rule, of the Hashemite Monarchy which the British had owed a debt after the Hashemite family had aided the British and as a result lost their title over Mecca and Medina for which Transjordan could at best soften the blow. Needless to say, the Zionist Congress took this offer as it came with a promise of inviolability of the remaining twenty-two percent of the lands west of the Jordan River backed by the British Crown, a promise that had all the power of a stiff breeze on a spring day and as often comes in the spring, the storm clouds soon blew in. The British did to the best of their ability place the lands promised to the Zionist Congress all but unavailable for the Jews to emigrate to during their time of most dire necessity as the British along with the rest of the world’s nations closed off every avenue with only the slimmest of opportunities when the European Jews were being shipped to slaughter houses where they were dealt death with assembly line efficiency by the Nazis during World War II. Even after the War the British continued to impose strict limitations such that their promise to the many Arab states and royalties demands that the Jews never be permitted to realize a majority of the population in the British controlled lands west of the Jordan River and thus never being capable of meeting the set requirements for the founding of their state. It was due this predicament that a compromise was reached despite British casting their votes and lobbying the other nations in the United Nations General Assembly to vote down Resolution 181 (Partition Plan of Palestine) which proposed to divide the lands west of the Jordan River in half granting each patrician one to the Arabs and one to the Jews for their state. The division (pictured in the map below) granted the Jews lands made up almost two-thirds being parts of the Negev Desert and granting the Arabs the most fertile lands, all the higher Judean Hills overlooking this coastal strip of Jewish land around Tel Aviv and the majority of the Galilee with Jerusalem under international control but completely surrounded by Arab land which would likely have resulted in their taking control of all of Jerusalem with only the most minor threat of violence before and international forces would pack-up and go home. One could hardly have designed a more advantageous division of land setting the Jews up for a very short existence but for reasons we will never know or understand, perhaps it was the divine intervention of Hashem, the Arab League voted against the plan as they would not accept even a truncated and completely undefendable Jewish State and by voting the plan down and the Zionist Congress agreeing to the plan the default became the lands west of the Jordan River would become the Jewish State, just as the British promised but had worked so tirelessly to prevent.

 

 

UN Palestine Partition Versions of 1947 and included within UN General Assembly Resolution 181 which was rejected by the Arab League negating the UN Resolution as if either side rejects such a UN Resolution which is non-binding, it invalidates the entire agreement rendering it mute from that point forward. Jerusalem was to be managed by a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) set up consisting of an international groups most likely to be rotated. This offer was accepted by the Zionist Congress but having any General Assembly Resolution accepted by one side and rejected by the other is simply one hand clapping, useless.

The evening of May 14, 1948 the Jews and Arab friends celebrated and the next morning went to war with a dozen aircraft, most without guns and few bombs often dropping seltzer bottles as they whistled as they fell and made a very satisfyingly loud pop when they struck ground; a few small tanks and armored up trucks and cars, a fair number of rudimentary or antiquated rifles and submachineguns with little hope of survival. During this war of survival, from the Jewish side of things, they often had arrivals from the refugee camps, many still emaciated from the concentration camps where they managed to survive. These Jewish refugees found they no longer had any home to return to and had heard of entire areas where returning Jews were shot on sight rather than have to face them and tell how their homes, businesses and belongings had been redistributed. They arrived and went straight from the boats to the front lines, some holding rifles not even knowing how to fire them even being shot without ever taking their rifles from safety to firing setting yet they sang Psalms as they advanced. This lack of training combined with a simple wish to defend the land at any cost was one of many difficulties corrected but which made the first weeks the most dire and treacherous. Lessons were learned and even better arms were procured with the main provider of weapons coming from a place which identified with the Jewish State as they had been the sacrificial lamb for expediency leading up to World War II, the nation of Czechoslovakia. Eventually an armistice ended the active war and Israel mourned the loss of one in ten Israelis. This end to the conflict would not remain settled indefinitely. In 1967 Egypt and Syria attacked Israel from top and bottom and on day two the Jordanians entered the war despite warnings and pleadings from Israel warning them the broadcasts from Egypt and Syria about their closing on Tel Aviv were false; but the Jordanian King thought the Jews were attempting to trick him and he was not to be denied his share of the spoils. The spoils were shared when the world demanded an end to the Six Day War where Israel liberated lands she had lost in 1948 which included the Golan Heights, Eastern Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza plus gained the lands of the Sinai Peninsula which is almost five times the size of Israel. This also placed Israel on one bank of the Suez Canal, a vital waterway, and also one side of the Straights of Tiran which guaranteed freedom of entry to the entire red Sea and access to the Arabian Sea and thus the Indian and Pacific Oceans and trade with Asia. It was the blockading of this important waterway which caused the Six Day war along with the massed armies by Syria and Egypt on the Israeli borders. The Syrian and Egyptians opted for a replay in 1973 but this time Jordan wisely decided to sit this round out. This was the Yom Kippur War in which Israel almost lost it all in the opening hours but regrouped and eventually was racing towards Damascus and had crossed the Suez Canal using the same bridges the Egyptians had used to surge across initiating the conflict and were heading for Alexandria and Cairo when the United Nations, Russians, United States and darn near the entire chorus of nations screamed “Stop!” Israel was duly chastised for taking advantage of the situation and was persuaded, it could be called threatened just as easily, to return to the demarcation lines from the previous armistice at the end of the Six Day War and return all gains as if the entirety of the conflict had not occurred.

 

The Arab world learned some dear lessons and different lessons were taken from these difficult conflicts. Egypt would be the first to strike a peace with Israel. This peace involved the return of the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula and the surrender of Gaza back to Israel as it had been occupied by Egypt and never actually annexed. Jordan was next to make peace and they too returned the lands they had occupied with one difference, Jordan had also annexed the lands and granted the citizenship to the Arabs living in the areas of Judea and Samaria which Jordan renamed West Bank; I guess Judea just sounded too Jewish. Jordan also forced the Jews living in those lands to relocate back into Israel taking their homes and anything they were unable to carry with them after their taking the lands in 1948. This presented an interesting option that of course Israel was never allowed to contemplate, let alone actually actualize it, namely the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria were now Jordanian citizens and as such could have been given the same treatment the Jews received when Jordan took the lands from Israel in 1948 and be made to relocate to Jordan across the Jordan River. This act would have saved the world a ton of pains and displeasure, though I often get the feeling the world, with a few choice exceptions, get a great deal of pleasure in Israel’s woes. So, to reward Israeli kindness in allowing these Jordanians to remain in their homes, keep their fields, groves, flocks, businesses and other properties and not forcing them from the liberated lands, the world gave them a foreign name changing them from Jordanians to Palestinians. Where the name Palestinians came from depends on who you ask. It appears to have come almost literally from the Roman name for Judea imposed after the Jewish revolt by Bar Kokhba which succeeded from132 through 135 after which the Roman Emperor Hadrian changed the name to Syria Palaestina, after the Roman pronunciation for Philistine, the ancient Jewish enemy long extinguished from the Earth who were a sea-faring nation originally from the Grecians Isles, and Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, thus Palaestina became Palestine and the Palestinians. This invented peoples who genetically, historically, socially and in all means other than geographically and with many having families residing from their originating lands of Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq and the other Arab nations were the concept of the KGB as the Soviet Union’s as part of their opposition to everything Western during the Cold War with the United States which made Israel their sworn enemy and as she was surrounded by the Soviet’s allied Arab states she was also apparently the low hanging fruit. Since the frontal assaults of 1948, 1967 and 1973 failed, the Soviets opted for a more nuanced approach where instead of the Goliath Arab world fighting little Israel it was recast as the Goliath IDF against stone throwing powerless Palestinians who were not related to any of the Arab world and had resided in the land which the Jews had stolen since the time before time. Any claim was conceivable as everything about the Palestinian people, state, history etcetera was cut from whole cloth and from the imagination of KGB operatives who were the coworkers, maybe not directly but for the same bosses, as Vlad the Invader Putin, so imagine your worst and they probably could best that and from the way the world acts now, their plans are working even after the Soviet Union collapsed such that it makes one wonder exactly who does this pretense serve now? Answer me that, please.

Palestinians on Their Way to Negotiate with Israel
Demanding Their One State Solution Sans Jews

 

 

So what does all this history and histrionics prove? All it proves is that Israel today had the borders defended by the IDF which are presumably by all treaties, conferences, history and original context are exactly as they should be and if any group within is not satisfied with this fact, they have two options, cry a lot and be very unhappy or move to someplace where they will be more comfortable. They will decide not to move as where are their choices? Syria? That would be just a tad crazy. Lebanon? Iraq? Not likely as they are Sunni and not really anxious to step into the middle of a Sunni Shiite war. Saudi Arabia? Kuwait? Well Saudi Arabia would be insulted as they send lots of oil dollars to these very same Arabs so they can kill and otherwise inconvenience Israel and possibly reclaim Muslim land for the greater glory of Mecca and Medina which are in Saudi Arabia and the Kuwaitis threw them out after Yasser Arafat backed Saddam Hussein after he destroyed Kuwait and killed many Kuwaitis during his all too long occupation of that nation eventually liberated by a coalition of the willing or some such nonsense. It was the United States and Western allies who did the major fighting. Egypt? They would not be welcome there as they are considered to be not all that different than the Arabs in Gaza which currently are causing Egypt headaches and security risks. Simply stated, the rest of the Arab world had forsaken the Palestinians because they have been turned into viscous murderers largely and their school system teaches only hatred and violent jihad which would only cause whatever nation and its government heartache and revolts and little else. The Palestinian Arabs have been trained for the past twenty years plus to murder Jews and demand special favor and act in as anti-social a manner as any peoples could imagine. They are bred on discontent and the destructive actions which bring only hardship upon their own people as they must be all but quarantined from the rest of the society which might actually desire to live productive lives free of senseless violence. This can be witnessed by visiting one of the many companies and manufacturers the European Union just voted to label their products in a move they hope will result in lost sales and income which will only hurt the very Palestinian Arab people they claim to be aiding but who work side by side with Jews in these companies and many of these Arabs are managers and have positions with Jewish workers under their direction with no friction and great cooperation, the way it would be without the instigators. But this was the hope of not just the Soviet Union when this plan was hatched but also the darling of the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds as they demand that the land of Israel be denied all but the Muslim Arabs who once held it under Suleiman and under the Caliphate and then the Ottoman Empire thus cannot be permitted to be lost to any other peoples to rule. The Jews must be made to respect their Islamic betters and be subservient Dhimmi and accept their abasement and degradations which are to be heaped upon them until they accept servitude and being a class beneath full humanity. The choice the Arabs demand of the world is either Israel or the Arabs rule and until the Jews are brought down the Arabs will rise against them. In the end, as we have stated before, in the end there can be only one. For as long as Israel can stand, that one will be the Jews protecting and defending the lands promised Abraham, guaranteed by the League of Nations, the British Crown, the United Nations and International Law. Those are the realities and the truths which anyone who studies the history is fully aware, but too many are frightened to stand with Israel as that might make them a larger target for terrorism though not standing with Israel has not prevented terrorism either. The world can line up with whichever side they wish, for us, we choose Israel.
