Middle East Wrap Up for Entering August

 

Turkey is as good a place to start as any. Turkey is in the midst of a purge which would make Stalin proud. Over six thousand judges and lawyers as well as military ranking officers and others whom Recep Tayyip Erdoğan decided might not be with his Islamization of Turkey. Turkey is now a lost cause and will now, unless something completely unforeseen should disrupt Erdoğan and his plans, slowly sink under the yoke of Islamism. The military, which Mustafa Kemal Atatürk originally tasked with protecting the realm and preserving the secular rule in Turkey has been completely cleansed of its officers dedicated to their Constitutional tasks and Turkey no longer has a savior. When the military could have easily replaced Erdoğan and his Justice and Development Party early in his rule and were prevented by the European Union (EU) and President George W. Bush and were continually prevented by President Obama and the EU, it led to this purge which was required before President Obama left office. It was recognized that should Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, the upper hand held by Erdoğan may pass from the possible. That is why Erdoğan knew his time was limited and the recent coup gave him the cover to execute his planned purge. Whether the coup was a false flag executed by Erdoğan or Fethullah Gulen and his loyal followers saw the purge coming and acted hastily, which the numerous failures to control critical infrastructure intimated, brought forth a perfect storm allowing for the witch hunt. Turkey has fallen to the Islamist side and into darkness from which it may never return. The sooner NATO and EU member states realize such and divorce themselves from Turkey, the better.

Moving on to Syria and we are facing the cauldron of discontent. The forces are almost as diverse as could be imagined. There is the swath controlled by the Islamic State with al-Nusra and other al-Qaeda associated forces, Bashir al-Assad representing the Alawite who are Shia and backed by Iranian forces including IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) as well as Hezballah terror elite from Lebanon and having Russian support in defense of their Mediterranean fleet bases being far forward and independent of the Black Sea fleet bases in the Crimea which could have been choked by Turkey and their control of the Bosporus. Syria, as the refugee situation has proven, is no longer a state in control of its territory and unable to enforce any form of legal control or sense of order. Continuing to Iraq and the situation also includes Islamic State and both Sunni and Shia forces in dispute over territory. The one constant in both north-eastern Syria and Northern Iraq has been the Kurdish Militias, Peshmerga, who have proven to be some of the best equipped and motivated against the Islamic State defeating them regularly and even regaining land and cities previously overrun. These forces would be best used to fight the Islamic State except that the Turkish Air Force has claimed to be bombing the Islamic state front lines when in reality they have bombed the Kurds more regularly than any other targets. Assisting the Kurds and even granting them a homeland as was promised them at the end of World War I before oil was struck around Mosul caused the British to renege and give the promised Kurdish lands to their chosen ruler of Iraq in exchange for the oil rights. The British were not exactly the most dependable when it came to promises made during World War I, just as the Jewish State of Israel which was delayed and directly prevented from establishing a homeland for the Jews at the start of World War II when the Jews desperately could have used a safe home to which to flee Germany and the advance of the Reich and the gas chambers. During these years the British limited Jewish emigration to seventy-five-thousand a year allowing less than thirty-thousand at best under the pretense that they required time to process applicants.

 

Jordan is one of the few breaths of fresh air. The Monarchy has permitted further democrazation and is granting more power to the Parliament over time and had the support of most of the populace. The horrific and public execution of the captured Jordanian pilot and the bold reaction of their monarch to the provocation won the King great favor and admiration from the Jordanian public. Jordan is one of the few stable republics in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Gulf States are relatively stable even if much of the stability is due to the Saudi Military which was utilized to quickly put down the Arab Spring revolt in Bahrain. The sole problem in the Arabian Peninsula is with Yemen which again relies on arms and IRGC support. The war became sufficient of a threat that Saudi Troops soon backed by Egyptian air support were required to prevent a total collapse of the government from Iranian insurrection. This had prevented Iranian control of the Bab el-Mandeb Strait which controls the southern passage of the Red Sea into the trade routes to Africa and Asia.

 

This brings us to Northern Africa where we can begin with Tunisia. There has been some discontent with the government and the lack of positive economic improvement. This was partially defused with new elections and things appear to be moving ever so slowly in a positive direction. The nation is still in the grasp of what might be called a malaise similar to the Carter years in the United States but hope exists and the elections have been judged to be open and fair. Tunisia is one country where there exists a degree of hope going forward. This is especially true considering their neighbor, Libya. Libya is a nation in ruins with several disparate warlords controlling separate areas and the supposed central government ruling a central area of the capital city and little else. Libya will be a ruin for the next several decades and might never again operate as a single nation and instead operate as several fiefdoms with constant clashes and wars over territories never again forming any singular rule.

 

Algeria has yet to collapse but is also teetering on financial implosion and has several challenges which could at any time explode causing universal unrest resulting in another failed state similar to Libya next door. Algeria is one to watch as to the direction they may end up heading as things are uncertain at best. The rest of the nations bordering northern Africa have a completely different problem as many are divided north from south. In nations such as Nigeria, Cameroon and their neighbors the Islamic forces control much of the northern areas with Boko Haram operating against the Christian and Animist southern regions. These nations are all on the verge of full blown civil wars. Unrest between Islamic force and Christian and Animist populations exist all the way eastward to the division between Sudan and Southern Sudan. These clashes also reach to Kenya which borders Eretria and Somalia where Islamic warlords control separate areas and also are waging a war with Kenya and other neighboring nations in an attempt to spread Islam into Central Africa. The Kenyan Army thus far has held their own but without outside aid they will eventually lose ground as they get worn down. This is an area where the Western Powers could do some good along with Nigeria, Cameroon, South Sudan and the other nations thus threatened.

 

The next stop is Egypt which is a crucial and unusual place. The most prestigious Islamic Studies Institution, al-Azhar University is located in Egypt’s Capital City of Cairo and thus shares the seat of power in Egypt. Egyptian President Sisi has twice addressed the faculty and ruling Imams of al-Azhar University expressing the crucial need for an Islamic reformation allowing for Islam to coexist with other religions and not be based on world conquest and the destruction of all which is not Islamic. Though he has not mentioned some of the cultural crimes such as the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan which were exploded by Taliban forces as they were judged an offense to Islam and idolatrous, President Sisi has challenged the Imams of al-Azhar University to spend effort in retrospective evaluation of Islam and to seek a less violent and strident path (see below). President Sisi of Egypt is true and honest in his hopes to lead a reformation of Islam but is facing an uphill battle which may at some point cost him his life. His position is every bit as treacherous as was that of Anwar Sadat for making a peace with Israel. He too saw the need for change and President Sisi has taken up the challenge which will be required if Islam is to survive as eventually the world will rise up and that would result in the termination of Islam as a world religion possibly leaving small bands scattered about the Middle East.

Moving to Iran, as far eastward as our travels will take us, and here we find the appearance of a representative democracy which appears to be functioning with only minimal upheaval as is witnessed elsewhere including right next door in Iraq. On closer inspection, a different reality becomes evident. The elections for the Parliament are a complete and total sham where the candidates must find approval before they, or even their party, are permitted to field candidates. Even then the candidates are vetted by a higher level of government. The reality is the government is a dictatorship and the office of President provides Iran with the appearance of normalcy. The truth be told, the Supreme Leader is the nation and the sole limitation on his power is the Council of Elders, the same body which selected Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to replace Supreme leaders Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini after his death. Since the 1979 revolution aided by United States President Jimmy Carter under the premise that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was necessarily a desirable and principled leader being an Islamic Holy Man, such misplaced logic has been indicative of American Middle East policy proving their presumed knowledge of Islamic culture and designs are woefully inadequate to even begin to formulate a cohesive and supportive strategy which would bring some semblance of peace to the region. The Supreme Leader is accountable to the Council of Elders which is constituted by elderly and respected Shiite clerics, Imams, who assure that the Quran is followed and that all the Islamic codes and other orders derived from the Quran are in fact obeyed and do indeed limit even the Supreme Leader. The reality is Iran is an oligarchy based on a religious hierarchy. Like other Islamic sects, the Shiites too seek to lead the final Caliphate which will unite the world under the banner of Islam and all will bear witness and surrender to Allah and his true heir in a lineage derived directly from Mohammad. Many Iranians believe in the Twelfth Imam who will rise from his solitude and hiding place from a well in Qom. Once the Twelfth Imam has risen, all Islam will unite behind Shia Islam and complete the struggle in a world war of unimaginable death, destruction and pure horrors. In the end there will stand the Twelfth Imam, the Mahdi, victorious and ruling over a unified world under Islam.

 

One of the serious problems with this interpretation is that the Twelfth Imam cannot appear until the world is already soaked in blood and a great conflagration engulfs the globe. The Shiite End-Times depiction is one of horrific terror and warfare engulfing the entirety of the planet. Some descriptions are so over-the-top that they appear to describe an all out nuclear exchange by every nuclear armed nation either against their main adversary or a broader attack on as many nations as possible. Some experts have claimed that just such a conflagration, with EMP pulse weapons destroying entire electrical grids and all the systems which rely upon them, would set civilization back centuries and cause the death of over three-fourths of the population in affected areas. It is also known that both Iran and North Korea have jointly worked on just such a weapon, a super EMP weapon using a heretofore unknown use for a hydrogen bomb as the driver of their EMP device. The power of such a device exploded four to five hundred miles above the center of any continent would disrupt and destroy virtually ever electronic device including those not even powered at the time of the strike. Virtually, if not actually all, any large generator with their massive windings would melt down into a shorted blob of copper and become useless. The United States and Europe are woefully unprepared neither to prevent such an attack nor to have hardened their electrical grids and specifically their largest transformers. Such a strike was exactly what makes Iran such a threat to the world and their sharing test results on nuclear weapons, especially EMP weapons, and rocket and missile specs and dimensional schematics showing exactly how to construct these weapons of war. Iran and North Korea are not working with such dedication to develop a true ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Weapon) just to be capable of striking Israel as that ability is and has been a part of their inventory for at least the past decade. Their desired targets are London and the British Isles and North America, more precisely, the United States.

 

The people running the military from deep within the Pentagon substructures which are capable of taking a direct strike partnering with NORAD Command (North American Aerospace Defense Command) which has recently been reconstructed flushing out full personnel and returning to their Cheyenne Mountain facility beneath an entire granite mountain suspended on necessarily huge shock absorbers and blast doors which once closed can withstand virtually anything coming through the mountain in its arching tunnel and the initial blast door is backed by a second blast door just as thick, capable and closed along with the primary to protect those inside. The return of NORAD to their Cheyenne Mountain facility from the Colorado Springs facility attached to the Air Force Academy was deemed a necessary and prudent reassignment. This was an expensive move as all the systems throughout the complex required rewiring to accept and facilitate the newer and more powerful computing capabilities. This was the stimulus to compel the Air Force and NORAD Command to reestablish the Cheyenne Mountain facility which was left due to its inability to power and transfer technical data and other necessities with any accuracy or alacrity. Cheyenne Mountain had reached the end of its road offering but one saving grace; it can withstand as many as a dozen direct strikes on the mountain and continue to function. No other Military facility can boast of such protection. Something in the intelligence community impelled NORAD to seek shelter in her nest egg in the Rocky Mountains and despite the fact that anybody can order a map of the area and find the Cheyenne Mountain facility, it will remain as close to indestructible as anyone can boast. To give one the real scope and size of the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, one need start with the entire mountain and move inward to grant the place its full, impregnable glory (see series of images below).

After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Air Force and NORAD believed, as did many all too optimistic futurists, that the years of war and unrest had finally arrived and democracy and human rights would spread throughout the world and all the nations of the world would slowly but inexorably reach advanced cultures and finally an age of peace would rule. This might have actually been possible except for another warrior class culture stepped onto the world stage where all were forced to take notice. As long as Islam was solely an Israeli problem with minor flare-ups which were thought to be unrelated and easily put down and managed, then all was well and the world would allow unrest against Israel knowing that the Islamic thrusts were limited to Israel. September 11, 2001 ended that sleepy little mirage where all was well with the world and the only rough spot was against the Jewish State. The burning collapse of the Twin Towers in New York bringing down three of the main buildings from the World Trade Center also destroying one of the main subway stations in New York, the ramming of another passenger liner into the Pentagon and a final passenger plane whose target remains unknown was brought down by the passengers in a desperate assault on the cockpit leading to the craft crashing in a field outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, signaled the onset of World War III upon the western and developed world with the Islamists ready to wage a war of attrition, infiltration and subsuming the governments of the non-Islamic world. The other half of this offensive thrust would be the purification of the Islamic world forcing all to obey strident and violent forms of Islam. The leading nation initially appeared to be Afghanistan and possibly Iraq. The truth was that another source was moneyed individuals and organizations from Wahhabist interests and financiers from Saudi Arabia, Muslim Brotherhood associated groups including Hamas, al-Qaeda and other Muslim Brotherhood entities, the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) who were initially a pan-Arabist nationalist group but have slowly been taken over by Islamists which has left Mahmoud Abbas in a delicate and threatened position. These all have a single common denominator in that they were all Sunni groups. Standing against these Sunnis was a highly organized and capable Shiite Arab fundamentalist force led by Iran. There was Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad, as well as Hezballah led by a figurehead Hassan Nasrallah whose wars against Israel and the Lebanese Christians would have left Hezballah all but utterly destroyed if not for the resupply of missiles and associated weaponry including scud missiles and even larger missiles as well as rifles, explosives, mortars and other weaponry whenever they could successfully pass them past Israeli intelligence and interception, sometimes even intercepted while transiting the Sudan. Further assistance was provided for both Narallah’s Hezballah and the Syrian forces supporting al-Assad with Special Forces from the IRGC. These forces trained and were deployed from Iran and would have stood against Israel until the Arab Spring turned Arab Winter destroyed Syria causing a struggle for supremacy between Sunni and Shiite forces in largely Syria and spreading into Iraq as the Islamic State, another Sunni terror groups whose barbarity is almost beyond measure. The Islamic State made great advances initially but they were eventually slowed and have since held their grounds with losses and gains equaling out in the current stalemate.

 

Currently Israel is facing potential attacks from Hamas in the south out of Gaza where Hamas is the government and Israel has completely removed all their forces and citizens from the area. They face terror attacks coming from Fatah and other Palestinian Arab forces as ordered by Mahmoud Abbas associated terror squads. There are also lone wolf attacks from these Arab forces and even Israeli Arabs who have complete rights in Israel have attacked Israelis with knives, hatchets and other implements and also ramming with vehicles into crowds similar as what occurred in Nice, France recently. The same style attacks which have plagued Israel for the past century even before the state was formed, often at the behest of the Mufti of Jerusalem, are now striking innocents beyond Israel and across Europe and North America. What Hamas and Fatah bring upon Israel, the Islamic State and al-Qaeda take unto the rest of the world. Much of this build-up of Islamic fighters is directly due to the surrender of the easy grounds by President Obama in his belief that the United States was the problem and native forces such as the Islamists were the cure. President Obama went so far in his trusting of Islamists that he prepared the ground for Iran to become a major nuclear power within five years of his leaving office. The question that need be asked in every election in the free world going forward is which candidate is best prepared to face a nuclear Iran led by a religious fanatic who regards the destruction of his nation as a simple price to pay to destroy Israel, the United States, Europe and the rest of the free world allied with the man-boy ruling North Korea with an equally sufficient nuclear weapons stockpile and both sharing ICBM technology aiming at a new world with vast tracks turned into nuclear wastelands with no electrical production after massive EMP pulse weapons are deployed followed by city buster hydrogen thermonuclear bombs reducing their centers to rubble and the external areas into radioactive piles of rocks and bricks. This is the near future within a decade if actions are not initiated to end the madness allowing for religious fanatics who believe that dying for Allah guarantees them a place in heaven with seventy-two perpetual virgins allied with an irresponsible child who murdered his uncle simply for his disagreeing with the man-boy ruler and had him hung immediately without a moment of consideration. How could anybody believe this lunatic would not join the Iranian fanatics in the destruction of the world in the hopes of ruling the ruins. This is the world that faces the voters in elections going forward, so think hard and long for it may end up as your last vote ever taken.

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.

The War Israel Lost the War Israel Must Win

 

Ever since the ideal of restoring the Jews to their ancestral homelands was hatched in the mind of Herbert Samuel, a British Zionist, back near the start of World War I, after the Ottoman Empire entered the war by opening fire on Russian ships in 1914, little actually went forward until David Lloyd-George was introduced to Chaim Weizmann for the actions to start rolling. It was eventually recognized that this as likely an opportunity to obtain a Jewish homeland as part of the war effort. These efforts never quite amounted to much partially because more serious efforts were in motion by a memo he wrote, after gaining some respected positions in the Labor Government, to the British War Cabinet entitled “The Future of Palestine” calling for the opening of Palestine to unrestricted Jewish immigration the Jews would soon outnumber the Arab population making a Jewish State possible. Herbert Samuel would later be appointed as the first Commissioner of the British Mandate in Palestine, likely in recognition of his earliest efforts. Samuel had hit upon what would constantly serve as the roadblock which the English worked diligently to retain, the existence of an Arab majority as initially, despite there being a majority population in Jerusalem, a city does not a nation make, the Jews were outnumbered by about 100,000 against a total of perhaps 600,000 Arab Muslims and Christians. As history would have it, soon after it had appeared that Herbert Samuel’s efforts would have gone for naught, a flicker of a spark was ignited in the British War Cabinet. Was this due to some discussion of Herbert’s memo or purely as history portrays the events we will never know for sure.

 

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

 

 

The British War Cabinet hit upon an idea which might ignite support from influential Jews if it was announced that there were plans for the return of the Jewish People to Eretz Yisroel, to their native homeland from which they had been separated for almost two-thousand-years. This plan to win over by goodwill of the Russian and American Jews may have had an effect but insufficient to retain Russia in the war effort which had been the main pillar of the plans. As the plan proceeded, it was here that David Lloyd-George was introduced to Chaim Weizmann, one of the leading figures in the Zionist Movement. This led to the eventual inclusion of Lord Balfour and the rise of David Lloyd-George to Prime Minister and Lord Balfour as Foreign Secretary were the right people in the necessary position to put into motion the plan of David Lloyd-George which he believed that only by introducing the Jewish People back into their lands could the lowland, the Galilee and other areas be transformed from the malarial wasteland it was into the Land of Milk and Honey. This was all part of what Lloyd-George had written in, “The Jews and Palestine”, of 1923 which was the precursor of the Balfour Declaration. The rest up to today is history. The Balfour Declaration, the San Remo Conference, the British Mandate, the Churchill White Papers which took the seventy-eight-percent of the British Mandate east of the Jordan River and fashioned an Arab State under the rule of the Hashemites while additionally guaranteeing the remaining twenty-two-percent of land west of the Jordan River to be inviolate as the homeland for the Jewish People. We will see how well that promise was kept by the British who never met a means they didn’t like by which to disarm the Jews and give those confiscated arms to Arab militias commanded largely by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini during the war of genocidal intent to slaughter every last Jews by the bullet, bayonet or by drowning them as driving them into the sea.

 

The promises and guarantees did not interfere with allowing the British to vote against the plans to grant the Jews their own state, even in half of what the British guaranteed, nor did it prevent their immediately recognizing the lands stolen by the offensive war against Israel the day of her founding, those of the Judean and Samarian lands taken by offensive war Jordan renamed West Bank, which was an occupation, this technicality is very important for what is about to happen in the near future if reports are correct. The Egyptians also stole a strip of land we know as Gaza which was also an occupation. Gaza must remain a separate entity as Israel left the area turning it over to the Palestinian Authority who lost it to Hamas and Islamic Jihad and now neither Israel nor Egypt desire to have anything to do with Gaza beyond restraining their efforts to receive heavy weaponry. The war in which Israel lost the Golan Heights to Syria, the Gaza Strip to Egypt and a large section of Judea and all of Samaria to Jordan is celebrated by the name the Israelis euphemistically called it, the Israeli War of Independence which is celebrated as a victory. Such is understandable because had the Israelis lost completely there would have been no Israel and a large number of Jewish corpses beyond the ten percent of the population which fell in the fighting. Any other nation would look at such a war where they lost almost a quarter of their land to their enemies would claim to have lost that war. There is a more rational way to look at Jewish history since the Romans spreading the Jews throughout their empire in an attempt to destroy the Jews just as they had done others such as the Carthaginians. This began the existence of the Jews throughout the world in what Jews refer to living in the diaspora.

 

Ever since the Jews were relegated to living in distant and separate communities, often at the comfort of their hosts, the Jewish People have held two things sacred. First was that at any time Hashem would call them to return to their ancestral homelands and rebuild the Holy Temple for Hashem to return to rule from his celestial throne in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem (or wherever we are commanded to build the last Temple). This was a long conflict marked by disappointment after disappointment, marked by exile and persecution almost beyond the ability to count, marked by prayers expressing our hopes to return to our homelands, disappointment after disappointment despite there being a constant core of our countrymen and women often making up a majority in Jerusalem with other concentrations in Hevron (Hebron), Shechem (Nablus), the Galilee, Negev and throughout the Biblical homelands. There was the remainder of the time under the Romans which was just the last of a number of former empires including but not limited to the Persians, Greeks, and Assyrians. Things did not improve much after the Romans who were followed by the Byzantine, Islamic, Mongol, Ottomans amongst others finalized with the British. Despite being given a Mandate to assist in the formation of a Jewish state by assisting with immigration of the Jewish People, they always made sure the Arab population remained consistently the majority while the British expended most of their efforts inhibiting Jewish emigration and even voting against the formation of the state of Israel in the United Nations vote on November 29, 1947. Many might contend that the entire time for approaching two-thousand years that the Jews faced persecutions, pogroms, exiles, inquisitions and almost any imaginable distress, persecutions, forced conversions from both European Christians and Middle Eastern Muslims and Crusaders and Islamist forces in Northern Africa all finalizing in the declaration of statehood finally on May 15, 1948 with the Golan Heights, the Suez-Negev border, the Israel-Lebanon border and the Jordan River as the eastern border at the moment of that declaration, and remained the borders for a few moments which could be the declared end of the war for Independence by Israel and the Jewish People. What followed as soon as the sun rose was at least six Arab Armies plus numerous Militias in an assault intending to genocidally eradicate the Jewish homeland before it even had an opportunity to learn to walk.

This genocidal intent war effort brought by Israeli’s immediate neighbors as well as Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and other distant Arab states stated as their goal to drive the Jews into the sea and watch them drown either in the rivers of blood from the dead Jews or under the waves of the Mediterranean Sea. Israel cannot be said to have lost the war as Israel survived and a loss would have resulted in no Israel, but then again after losing the areas of the Golan Heights to Syria, parts of Judea and much of Samaria to Jordan and the Gaza to Egypt, Israel also cannot be said to have won that war and further this should not be referred to as the Israeli War of Independence as it was more the Israeli War for Survival, she had already won the last battles of a near two-millennium war for independence resulting in the declaration by David ben Gurion on the eve beginning of Iyar 5, 5708 or the evening hours of May 14, 1948 only to have a war of intended annihilation, genocidal annihilation the very daybreak following by basically the Arab League nations.

 

The Arabs attempted again in June of 1967 to drive the Jews into the sea. The Egyptian and Syrian armies massed on the Israeli northern and southern borders while Egypt had cut off all Israeli shipping through the Straights of Tiran which was an established casus belli act of war against Israel which led to an Israeli air assault as the armies engaged. The Syrian and Egyptian media were generating reports of great victories and that the Syrian and Egyptian forces were closing on Tel Aviv. The King of Jordan mobilized his military to get his piece of the great victory against the Jewish State. Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol (Hebrew לֵוִי אֶשְׁכּוֹל) personally called the King of Jordan and attempted to convince him that the reports of great victories by the Syrians and Egyptians were propaganda and that Israeli Defense Forces were winning handily and routing both armies. The Jordanian King interpreted the Israeli Prime Minister’s plea as a sign of desperation proving how badly the Israelis were losing the war. History tells the tale as Israel liberated Judea and Samaria, the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip and gained the Sinai Peninsula and had gained lands towards Damascus. Upon the end of hostilities which the United Nations with the assistance of the permanent members of the Security Council forced an end to hostilities before Israel captured any of the aggressors’ capital cities. Upon reaching a ceasefire the Security Council soon reached an agreement demanding that Israel return lands, undefined lands not described as any certain amount but also not demanding Israel return all lands. Part of this was initially seen as an admission that Israel would retain the lands liberated, namely the Gaza Strip and Judean and Samaria areas which were liberated from Jordan.

Over time and resultant from Arab billions spent on propaganda and the invention of a ‘Palestinian Arab’ as independent from the rest of the Arab world, a pure invention, such that Gaza and the areas Jordan had named the West Bank made up of the areas Jordan occupied after the 1948-9 War of Annihilation of the Nascent State of Israel which did not completely eradicate Israel but did inflict loss of ten percent of the Jewish population including Arabs who fought alongside the Jews against the invading armies. Proof of the ‘Palestinian Arab’ being an invention is easy to provide as a ‘Palestinian Arab’ was any Arab residing in Gaza or in the West Bank or any Arabs who ended the war as refugees whether if such status resulted from their fleeing at the Mufti of Jerusalem’s demands or resulting from the war itself are all considered to be ‘Palestinian Arabs’. Apparently a ‘Palestinian Arab’ can come from Jordanian areas, Syrian areas, Egyptian areas or have resided at any point after 1942 west of the Jordan River and not remained an Israeli citizen. So, let us imagine two Arab families from Beer Sheva who were neighbors. One family left for Jordan obeying the demands of the Mufti of Jerusalem while the other family simply remained in their home in Beer Sheva, did not take either side, did not flee to Jordan as requested by the Mufti under claims it would make slaughtering the Jews easier. The family that fled so it would be easier to murder Jews are ‘Palestinian Arabs’ while the family who sat on the sidelines and now vote in Israeli elections, work in Israel, go out to restaurants and live no different than the Jews in Israel though they worship at a Mosque in Israel while the Jews pray in Synagogues and that Arab family is punished by the Arab League and other Pro Arab groups including the PLO, Hamas, and even many Arab governments for not being a ‘Palestinian Arab’ like their former neighbors who now reside in a refugee camp in Jordan, or at least their descendants live in such a camp and are considered to be ‘Palestinian Arabs’ for all generations into the future while their former neighbors generations are Israeli citizens and can never become a ‘Palestinian Arab’, such segregation and exclusion.

 

The Oslo Accords were signed in 1993 which set Judea and Samaria areas held by Jordan but liberated by Israel in 1967 and held during the 1973 Yom Kippur War as well as Gaza as being the Palestinian Authority (PA) areas and the Palestinian Liberation Organizations (PLO) was given excuse for their terrorist past and transformed into peace partners. The Gaza and Area A of Judea and Samaria was designated as under complete PA control, Area B under joint PA Israeli control and Area C under full Israeli control. The initial intent which was spoken of but never written as the PA would go irrational and orbital at even the suggestion that anything which gave Israel or the Jews any rights was to be verboten. During the twenty-two years since the signing of the Oslo Accords the world has been sold the idea that if Israel would just offer the PA a fair deal there would be a deal within minutes and everything would be vundabar. What has been left out is the only acceptable deal that every officer throughout the PA know and speak of freely in Arabic, a language apparently impossible to translate into any Western language. The only acceptable solution is the complete liberation of all of Palestine from the River to the Sea, simply stated, the replacement of Israel and the eradication of the Jewish state and its Jews. Of course the ruling elites of Hamas and Islamic Jihad who control Gaza have one further addition they demand, the death of Jews wherever they may be, the final solution worldwide. The maps in the newspapers, on the office walls and in the children’s textbooks all show Palestine as replacing all of Israel. Students are taught from the day enter school to claim they were born inside Israel and are assigned their new home city even including Tel Aviv which in 1948-9 was almost exclusively Jewish, and these children take on this new identity and it is even enforced at home. But all of this is about to change as Abbas believes that he has the support for the next step and the final solution of the Arab-Israeli problem.

The reports claim that at his annual United Nations speech at the opening of the General Assembly Abbas is going to announce that the PA is being dissolved, the Oslo Accords are being declared defunct and void and that Palestine is now a nation occupied by Israel and he will demand the world’s assistance in removing the Jewish menace from his country and it receiving its long deserved liberation, and in case you cannot guess, liberated from the River to the Sea. What a surprise. He will not say that in so many words but he does not need to as the Europeans and all too many NGOs are already fully involved in the destruction of Israel and the formation of Palestine on the graves of approximately six-million Jews. If only the Israeli leadership will take this declaration for the declaration of war it actually is and simply win the war once and for all and push the ‘Palestinian Arabs’ back into their traditional homelands or simply give them to their cohorts who believe in the same Islamic world conquest, such as either ISIS or Iran, the sole difference is the tribe of Islam they wish to impose, Sunni or Shiite. This claim may be thwarted by demanding as is done every year in September that Israel releases thousands of murderous terrorists, establish a building freeze, or surrender more lands to the PA or perhaps have all the Jews residing in East Jerusalem and beyond the Green Line forced to resettle and all their lands and homes and crops be forfeited to the PA. This is just the next step in the original death of Israel in stages. The next claims will be for the remainder of Jerusalem, parts of the Galilee and likely the northeastern lands of the Negev including Beer Sheva and likely Dimona including the research nuclear reactor, but why not a nuclear armed PA, we are about to have a nuclear armed Iran and the Sunni PA could be the nuclear deterrent instead of Saudi Arabia, after all, President Obama has always had a soft spot for the ‘Palestinian Arabs’ a soft spot in a cranial location. For Israel this coming assault must be viewed as a declared war and the leadership must accept the gauntlet slapped across their cheeks and thrown to their feet and simply retrieve the gauntlet and return the slap and then turn and prepare for the final test of the lands which were promised under international law amongst other claims as the Jewish homelands, a promise we must defend or watch as all Judaism becomes a faint memory with a few scattered communities numbering a few thousand Jews at most within a generation or so.
