United Nations Working Group Plans for Jews and Israel

 

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has discovered the source of Arab violence against Jews, and particularly Israeli Jews, was that the Jews made them do it. That’s right, the Jews have forced the Arab Palestinians to attack Jews like wild-men attempting to stab Jews or ram vehicles into bus stops and other places where there are many people, assumed to be Jews, in a close proximity because the Jews won’t give them the lands they demand. Has Ban Ki-Moon bothered to ask any Arab Palestinians other than the Palestinian Authority (PA) master manipulators of lies and half-truths or is this something he dreamed up as it has become the main theory of those who believe they have the answers such as Ban Ki-Moon, President Barack Obama, secretary of State John Kerry, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini or her predecessor the Lady Catherine Ashton or any of any number of European and United Nations Human Rights aficionados? Probably not, as he has stated this inane, malicious, odious, vindictive, anti-Semitic verbal conceptual compost before; and we are being kind. All of the others mentioned share this unoriginal idea that Jews are to be restricted as to where they are permitted to build their house or establish their family residence. There was the ghetto in Rome that to this day is where Jews reside or the Warsaw ghetto where Jews were piled to the point of making the entire area an unhealthy living area with health concerns whenever the density gets so tight that entire families end up residing in a single room sharing an apartment with as many other families as there were rooms with more than one often in the living room making the spread of disease a guaranteed part of existence. When Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria they refused to allow Jews who owned lands, homes, farms and businesses to remain in the lands they captured during their participation in an offensive war which intended to result in the extermination of the Jews but they had to settle for stealing their lands, businesses, homes and anything they could not carry as they were given merely hours to vacate and resettle inside what became the Green Line. Are these Jews now to be denied their own businesses, lands, homes and farms or is the ejection ordered by Jordan now going to be enforced for the Arabs left behind when Judea and Samaria were liberated during the Six Day War and if so where are they to turn to receive some form of reparations for their difficulties and loss of property as both should have equal claiming rights and reparations or neither should receive any form of relief.

Of course there will be no compensation for not only the Jews dispossessed of their properties by Jordan after the Arab Initiated War to Annihilate the Jews and Destroy Israel just as there has been and will never even be discussed what is owed the Jews who were dispossessed in multiple Arab and Muslim nations or reparations for the family members of the Jews murdered in Arab Pogroms across the Arab and Muslim worlds. There will always be reparations owed to Arabs by any Jewish state no matter how truncated Israel may end up as after there have been a series of peace accords each one giving the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians another piece of Israel for peace until the next Intifada which will be resolved with another piece accord where another piece of Israel will be awarded these Arabs just as before. But Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon had a lot to say about the Jewish problem. He listed the fact that the Arab violence was “bred from nearly five decades of Israeli occupation.” These odious ideas were voiced at the United Nations conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, on the “Rights of the Palestinian people” and the situation in Jerusalem. That isn’t too slanted a conference, now is it? Of course it is, but we are not supposed to think like that as that is thought crime which the United Nations cannot yet impose corrective confinement and reeducations, but they are working to get such powers as it will be for the good of the people, especially the children as everything worthwhile is sold as being for the children. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon knows that the violence that has been forced from the Arab youth as “the result of fear, humiliation, frustration and mistrust. It has been fed by the wounds of decades of bloody conflict, which will take a long time to heal. Palestinian youth in particular are tired of broken promises and they see no light at the end of the tunnel.” He is so wise and knowledgeable and worldly so we must listen and heed his wonderful words of copping out and taking the easiest way out targeting the civilized society which will not test the armor of his car while it transports him in New York as the Israelis and Jews in general are an understanding people who realize that people such as Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the rest of the world political elite take the safety of blaming the Jew for the hatred being perpetrated upon them because Europe and all university educated from Ivy League universities and the finest schools in Europe where history is told with a twist as is taught in the department of Middle East politics which has become known benefactors such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates who dictate policy, course material and provides numerous teachers, administrators and highly active students who are often members of some Muslim Brotherhood sponsored youth group. They demand that their version of the world history and political science be taught, after all, they were the ones with the ready cash. Of course their influence at these fine institutions of higher learning extends beyond their teachings; their influence can be seen in school’s with active BDS and Israel apartheid demonstrations just for starters.

 

Following Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s compromise for the dealing with the demands of the leadership of the Arabs known as Palestinians will run into one singular problem, the Arab leadership has demanded the Israelis pull back to the Green Line in exchange for nothing changing except the Jews have been pushed back. They will then demand some additional lands such that it more closely resembles the deal they refused back in 1948 but chose war instead. Then they will claim there was some prehistory line that they owned and that needs to be liberated before they can be satisfied. Eventually the state of Israel will stretch from Nahariya in the north to Ashkelon in the south and only a single mile strip along the coast and as Jerusalem has been declared a universal city which anybody may visit, which was originally administered for the first three weeks by an United Nations peacekeeping force but due to unforeseen small difficulties the enforcement of equal rights and equal access to Jerusalem has been turned over to the Waqf and the Arab Palestinian government. Should such a series of appeasements be attempted to appease Mahmoud Abbas or Saab Erekat then Israel would be pressed to their coast with the Mediterranean Sea plus access to Jerusalem which at last is safely in the hands of the Muslim Jordanian Waqf which Jews would need petition for permission to enter Jerusalem. What more could go wrong?

 

Oddly enough things could get worse if Israel were to do as so many believe would end the problem, but would it? The idea is Israel should unilaterally form the two states as it is drawn up by the United Nations but we already know the Arabs would reject such as they have rejected such an offer twice already. There are those few who claim it is not too late to give the Jews the Island of Madagascar, which was an alternative to the Middle East that was actually presented and wisely rejected by the Zionist Congress. Imagine what such would have caused, there would have been a tribe of Arabs living in southwestern Yemen near the Bab al-Mandab Strait which could trace their roots back to Madagascar and Israel would be facing the exact same problem. Actually it would be worse as the Jews have no recognized claims to Madagascar. Our actual homeland is what we have a rightful claim to complete with treaties and validations from three-thousand-years of history, so the Zionist Congress knew what they had set in motion. They just were unaware that the world would treat Israel both as the only place every Jew should be located, willingly or unwillingly, while at the same time demanding that the Jews return to their former countries of residence and resume a normal life as if nothing had happened. Never mind that many of the Jews who attempted exactly the same return were met with hostile reactions by their former neighbors and if they were fortunate they escaped with their lives and becoming true people without a country. If ever the Jewish People were in need of a homeland, the end of World War II was that time. Many a European Jew had no place they could call their own and things were turning from bad to worse for the Jews residing in the Arab and Muslim worlds. If ever the Jews were in need of a blessing, the holy lands were just that, the place where a Jew could relate to the area from the stories they read about and had studied from Torah and other Bible narratives. A Jew could arrive at the shores of this land and know they were coming home, that the dry bones were collecting into a people again with the first signs of sinew holding them into individual persons representing every Jew who came home. This was the second wave and the wave which forever proved that we had matured and grown sufficiently deserving of making the return to Eretz Yisroel, but who knew this truly was their land.

 

But once again the successes of the Jewish people would cause additional problems. The Jews brought the land to life revealing her abundance which had remained hidden from all others who came during the land’s history. This made for great wealth and opportunities which the surrounding Arabs saw and desired to also reap the benefits of the returning Jews so they flocked to Israel as well after the War of Annihilation, also called Israel’s War for Independence when War for Survival would even have been more apt a name. The Arabs have never been happy for others to be more productive; then they demand their share of the wealth when that is the case. That is the entire idea behind the Jizya, the tax on those who are not Muslim. The problem in Israel is that they cannot apply a Jizya on the Jews, an especially onerous Jizya commensurate with their apparent good fortune which has to be at the expense of Allah’s most wonderful servants, thus the building anger. Further, the fact that Israel is not ruled by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, after the lands had been conquered by Muslims, more specifically Arab Muslims, it must not be permitted to fall under any other rule, it has been Islmisized. Many like to quote the Quran where it recognized the Jewish ties to Eretz Yisroel and made it a deed Muslims were obliged to permit that the Jews reside and rule themselves in their lands. The problem is that was part of the Mecca Quran and was superseded by the verses which simplified things in the Medina verses of the Quran which take precedence over anything contradictory from the Mecca Quran. The Medina Quran simply divided the world into two houses, the House of Islam (Dar al-Islam Arabic: دار الإسلام) and House of War (Dar al-Harab Arabic: دار الحرب) which defined the world as that pacified by Islam and which could never be permitted to be removed from Islamic rule, and the lands yet to be pacified by Islam. Islam sees all the world which is not of Islam as a vile and violent place simply needing the guidance and order of Islam societal structure under the Sharia (Islamic Law which governs all aspects of life down to the individual actions such as how to eat, dress etc.) where the Muslims are supreme and all others are Dhimmi or souls left wanting of Islam who were of a lesser level of human being than a follower of Islam who are blessed with great knowledge and understanding as they have memorized or at least learned much of the Quran, Hadiths and other Islamic writings and thus have been introduced to all knowledge in the cosmos as there is only the Quran and all other writings are insignificant as the Quran holds all knowledge. For a short but helpful explanation of the Mecca and Medina Quranic writings, their difference and the reasons societal and in the like of Muhammad which made them so different may we recommend one of our much earlier articles on the subject titled Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and hope it and the other links, mostly in the comments section, will be of some help.

The fact that the area of Israel and Jerusalem in particular are so important to prevent the Jews from having their own areas and with self-rule as well is simply an anathema to the followers of Islam as they have already spilled copious amounts of blood fighting to prevent the Christians from taking back the Holy Lands they had hoped that was a done deal after the prolonged Caliphate both before and after the rise of the Ottomans who at least had the decency of being Islamic themselves. For this reason the Muslims insist on retaining these lands. The Muslim nations with assistance from the non-aligned nations (NAM) hold a large majority when voting as a bock throughout the United Nations with the exception of the Security Council and only not there due to the veto wielding power of the five permanent members, Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States. This majority holds in the Human Rights Council, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the BDS NGOs which are controlled, though many likely are unaware of this, out of Ramallah and the offices of Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat, Yasser Abed Rabbo, Hanan Ashrawi, Khaled Abu Toameh, Mohammed Omer, Nabil Sha’ath, Mohammad Dahlan, Jibril Rajoub, Mohammad Shtayyeh and Salam Fayyad along with who knows who else from the ranks of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), the Fatah Party, the al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigades upper ranks and possibly even Marwan Barghouti from out of his jail cell, or more accurately, his social club and editorial board headquarters with slight restrictions on travel though writing editorials for the New York Times and other leftist news outlets apparently is not too difficult a task. The United Nations and international NGOs are all too often directly or indirectly influenced or even organized and run by the Arabs of the Palestinian Authority and the associated terrorist groups that it boggles the mind. Then there are the left wingnuts who protest Israel and only Israel and are often given generous budgets through the many arms, councils, organizations and study groups and all of this international industry being co-managed between the United Nations and Ramallah. These offices of the PLO, PA and the various United Nations NGOs are so ubiquitous as to drown out any truths which might almost surface before being trampled and maligned in the world media, at conferences, in press releases, in the General Assembly Emergency Meetings, which thus far have convened for the sole purpose of denouncing Israel. The denunciations vary little usually covered by for any one or combination of the following, preventing the successful attaining of peace at talks the Arab PA members walked out of, settlements being built, settlements intended to be built, decisions not to demolish settlements, the existence of settlements (and here we need to define settlements because there are Arab settlements built illegally all over Judea, Samaria, the Galilee and the Negev but the United Nations and their ilk only mean places where Jews are residing), non-judicial executions which are self-defensive use of force resulting in the death of an attacker by any Israeli Jew be they police, IDF or armed citizens (we know how the United Nations feels about armed citizens and especially those who are actually using these weapons for their own or others’ defense) disproportional use of force (this simply translated to actual regular people language means that there are insufficient dead Jews as the United Nations has decided that Israel must be required to have equal or excess casualties as do the Arabs on any confrontation be it war in Gaza or Intifada in Israel). Then there is the Human Rights Commission which has in its bylaws a requirement to denounce Israel for the indignity of that day at the commencement of every session even before the main reason for meeting has been stated, it takes precedence over all other considerations and is done even of the session was called to address the Arab-Israeli conflict which will result in a release of a litany of condemnations of Israel and on the rarest of occasions a rebuke of Mahmoud Abbas or some other PA official but nothing consequential or actually harsh in it tone possibly even apologetic in nature as in we hate to have to do this but here is a slap on the wrist for something Israel would be facing the International Court of Justice. If the PA, Hamas, Iran, President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein, the former Jordanian Ambassador to the United nations and in the line of succession to be the next King of Jordan had their way there exists a better than average chance that Israel would be erased and all Jews placed on a spaceship heading into deep space with no discernible destination other than not Earth. What could possibly go wrong?

The Israeli Political Class Image Problem

 

Before getting to the meat of the article I would like to praise something Israel not only got right, carries it off without any hitches and actually accomplished their objective. The article that put a smile on my face and a song in my heart was Secret operation in Syria to rescue last remaining Jewish family. Their mission was to rescue the last Jewish family in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The one thing Israel does extremely well repeatedly throughout her history starting with being the recipient of the European Jews who largely were expelled penniless and then over the next decade had to receive the Jews from across MENA (Muddle East and North Africa) who were also largely relieved from their wealth as well. There was the raid on Entebbe Airport in Uganda and others throughout the years, some which may eventually be covered in books after those involved feel comfortable and the government also allows information to be released. There was one error made but that was by officials after they reached Israel which will hopefully be remedied successfully and all necessary actions be completed as successfully as this operation. The admission on there uncomforting decision being made immediately public is another credit to Israel for having the openness just as was obvious in our historic record which even revealed the slightest mistakes and flaws in the greatest heroes in the Bible, even Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Moses had their flaws revealed even if they were not necessary to the story and solely for the sake of honest recounting.

 

The idea that there are a noticeable number of our current leaders having flaws in their performances and even some in characters, all of which prevent programs which fully reflect Torah and the rest of our laws, such as not settling all the land Hashem promised which all reflects as believable, just as the greatest Jews in Torah and the Bible were flawed though nowhere near with the rate, consistency and severity as our leaders today. Often Israeli leaders appear to be more concerned with their image out in the rest of the world than in performing their supposed assigned task of representing the people they gave promises in exchange for their votes. What their actions are responsible for is made evident in the video below where an English interviewer constantly jumps to interrupt Naftali Bennett shoving the words from virtually every source possible down Mr. Bennett cherry picking and going through these quotes almost without an actual pause to allow Bennett to speak his mind. It becomes obvious that the interviewer chose Naftali Bennett in order to make the point that Israelis are conflicted and that they have no answers to the accusations from the world at large and there are quotes from throughout the range from Prime Ministers to Shin Bet retired commanders, to Presidents all who have given lip service to the two state solution. The entire ambush was to make the record show that almost every Israeli who has been or is in power has supported the formation of the two state solution and that any Israeli who does not support such is a racist, worthless, genocidal lunatics who have no answers and are incapable of even completing a single cogent response. The fact that the interviewer jumped the microphone almost immediately after Naftali Bennett began to express a thought not permitting his putting thought to word to be completed as doing so would have presented a second opinion but that was not the intent, the intent was to ambush Bennett and short rift any pro-Israel record or argument and simply was to spend the entirety of the ugly interview in order to present quotes and other international demands or voted at the General Assembly as valid arguments which are so obviously valid that any refutation must necessarily be pounced upon and denied access to the airwaves.

 

 

 

 

The interview begs the question of what are the most obvious and pressing problems and fatal challenges which make the two state solution impossible to implement. The easiest fruit is to simply quote Mahmoud Abbas speaking in Geneva to a special session called just to give him a platform to denounce Israel for not relenting the lands they have occupied for the last sixty-seven years. We covered this on November 3, 2015, And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel replete with the necessary math and the realization of the real intentions and ideas which drive Abbas in his quest against all of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas will be credited with having slipped and actually meaning 1967 and not sixty-seven years ago and thus it will be brushed off as Abbas having a senior moment and misspeaking. The reality indicates Mahmoud Abbas finally spoke the truth in a location where he was recorded and the world could finally bear witness to the bald truth, but the world does not want to hear the truth any more than the interviewer would allow the truth to even be stated during a recorded faux-interview we depicted above. Abbas has often made similar remarks, as had Yasser Arafat before him, when speaking to the Arabs in person or via radio or television. This has also been the central argument which began when the two men with the assistance of the KGB formed the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in 1964; a full three years before the Six Day War which should get many people to realize the vacuous line of reasoning that now says that the sole aim is to retrieve the lands lost in the Six Day War which the resonating call heard at all too many protests, especially on campuses across the Western World, where it is often chanted, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be Free!” This slogan leaves no room for Israel and is deadly accurate as to the sole peace Abbas desires to grant Israel, a genocidal cleansing of all of Israel and her Jews declaring such as the second Shoah while threatening to murder the remaining Jews of the world as they join the growing call of the soldiers of Islam to awaken from their slumbers and bring about their blessed age by slaughtering the Jews and all non-Muslims. Their description of these times has the rocks and trees calling to them saying according to Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

 

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

 

That brings us to the root of the problem. There are numerous Israelis who believe that if only Israel would surrender the right combination of lands and would be sufficiently subservient to the Arabs that they would be satisfied and allow the Israelis to live in peace. They believe that should Israelis just act in a particular manner that they would find some happy magic formula which would allow for Jews to live in peace and everybody would live happily ever after. These Jews would also call for the planting of groves of babble trees as they would shelter us from Islamic violence. Never mind that suggestion being defeatist and leading to every Jew needing to plant their own Gharqad, tree or set of such trees. Doing so ignores all the violence which accompanies any sign of Israeli weakness which is launched whenever the Arabs believe they have seen weakness and even the slightest bit of defeatism as they allocate such actions as a lack of resolve by the Jews and simply another reasoning to apply pressure to gain an even larger surrender eventually leading to the complete defeat of the Jews and their desired goal of chasing the Jews from all of what they see as solely their lands. One can trace ever increase in the levels of violence to a defeatist statement which promised simply another surrender in the face of their violence. The status-quo on the Temple Mount is another example of Jews backtracking when faced with Arab insistence or actions which are the initial claims that the lands do not belong to the Jews and we must therefore surrender further lands as we have to be getting close to the magic formula where some form of equilibrium will be reached. Such statements are defeatist on their own formulae as they recommend some willingness for Jews to surrender more of Eretz Yisroel in order to attain a balance which even on its face proves does not exist. One cannot blame the violence on Israeli actions as often the violence follows words which feed the psyche that believes the Jews to be interlopers unworthy of any claim to these Arab conquered lands as all non-Muslims were effectively removed over the millennia and that it is only Arab loss of faith and face that the Jews were permitted because of perceived Arab weakness.

 

The truth be told, there does exist a formula for existential peace with the Arabs which is really not much of peace as it is a surrender. The peace which Israeli leaders appears to have infected their thinking when they achieve high office or recent retirement is that if only all the land were to be surrendered followed by pleading for the Arabs to pretty please allow us even a postage stamp sized piece of land that then all would be well. These masters of surrender never permit themselves or others to realize the basic truth that the Arabs who are dedicated to terrorism and dealing in death will continue to be the basis of Arab education turning out radicalized teachers from the main Arab factions, Hamas and Fatah. The reality is that there is only a slight difference between Fatah and Hamas and of these two there can only be one in the end, and that will be whichever of the two claims proves to unseat the Israeli claims more completely. The Fatah is mostly nationalist and secular while Hamas is Islamist religious based resistance. Eventually Hamas will win the struggle between these two entities for the hearts and minds as their argument is far more persuasive and the stronger of the two attitudes at their base. Furthermore, the religious fanatics are far more committed to their foes defeat and would never have given even a single line of validation through their negotiations. These religious true believers fuel the fanaticism which leads to homicidal suicide bombings and other forms of terror producing mass casualties which have proven in the past to have gained contrition and erosion of the Jewish positions and thus reinforce the religious fanaticism over the nationalist position.

 

The two Arab foes, Hamas and Fatah, have used these models most effectively with the nationalists pressing the idea that one last concession will bring the entirety of the conflict to a close and while this is being debated in the Knesset and then the following of the fanaticism starts entering a series of violent acts which removes any thought of a peaceful turning over of a limited piece of land and having the level of acts to be deescalated. The reality is that timidity only reinforces the Arab feelings that a complete victor is at hand. This cycle of promise offered, snatched away due to violence, the offer now part of status-quo, new demands of even greater amounts of land followed by greater violence escalating as necessary to force Israeli surrenders. There is only one way to end this slow retreat and that is to refuse to retreat any further and start annexing lands enjoined by the one thing which scares the Arabs the most, continue to call for more surrender. It was Jewish willingness to surrender Jewish rights upon the Temple Mount to the point now that Jews are restricted from visiting the Temple Mount in groups larger than at most a dozen Jews. This permits maximum use of the screamers, biters, and other riotous behavior closing down the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitations. These bowings to Islamic supremacy at our most holy of sites has led directly to Arabic prayers being the sole praying permitted thus refusing praise of Hashem and replacing them with praises of Allah on the Temple Mount with any Jew thought to be praying now resulting in their arrest, full investigative hearings and too often closure of the Temple Mount to Jews entering this holy place at all due to Islamic rioting. It is the permitting of such fanaticisms that has placed Israel in the defense world-wide and behind the BDS campaign which could be nipped at its roots if the Jews would react to such limitations by broadening the personal freedoms for Jews and all others at this holiest of holy places and anything else is purely inviting trouble and an eventual Jewish defeat.

 

 

Backsliding will empower Arab demands and encourage Arab violence. Only exercising our rights and exercising our claims to the lands will end the Arab attempts at supremacy within Israel and in forcing the Jews into Dhimmitude which in the end will bring on the death of the Jewish State replacing it totally by an Arab State in which Jews are Dhimmis taking a subservience to Arab Muslims or facing death, neither of which is acceptable. The first and most important step Israel must start with is speaking our known truths and acting upon them at the same time. This must be followed by our annexation of the lands; something the Arabs will understand and bring them to offer actual compromises and not simply a line of demands from the Jews of Israel. These demands are a direct result of timidity and talk of an approaching compromise as nothing ends any hope of an actual settlement faster than negative public opinion which can take a reasoned and proud Zionist and make him appear weak and ineffectual in an interview where he should have insisted he be permitted to talk and not simply be a prop for the reading of a list of ignorant and an unproductive outing where the Zionists again appeared cowed. Our cause would have been better supported had Naftali Bennett demanded to be heard and when shouted down once again and interrupted after two or three words have threatened to end the interview leaving the British moderator without a foil which made his arguments, his blatant anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel stances more believable than had he been left with an empty studio. I realize that Naftali Bennett is a great supporter of Zionism but when you are being so used one must take actions other than polite demanding your time to express your vision and not just sit there and take insulting breaking in on ones answer every time such that the interviewer had more microphone time than did his guest which is always a sad state of affairs. This interview was an even worse showing than the last Republican debate, another instance where the rules were twisted to put on display the brilliance of the moderators rather than investigate the candidate positions. Demanding fair treatment is not rudeness but rather often a response to bullying rudeness. Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the presumed military wing of Abbas’s Fatah, lauded praises upon the terrorists who shot Israelis near Hevron this past Friday. This action was obviously taken to introduce an escalation of the Stabbing Intifada complimented already with bolder throwing at passing vehicles. Now we will be facing shooting including likely sniper fire in Jerusalem from an Arab populated hill into homes of Jews on the next hill with these shots often from a high caliber weapon so as to penetrate walls even going through two or three rooms before lodging in the other outside wall.

 

 

Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade has Announced that the Stabbing Intifada is Already Complimented by Bolder Boulder Throwing at Vehicles, Using Vehicles as Battering Rams Into Bus Stops and Light Rail Station. Now There Will be Shooting and Sniper Fire in Jerusalem From Arab Controlled Hill into Jewish Homes on the Neighboring Hill. Additionally the Rioting, Especially the Friday After Prayer at Checkpoints, Will be Accented With Loud, Sharp, and Staccato Retorts of Machine Gun Fire. All This Will Now Endanger Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and even Israelis who are Muslims Without ANY Differentiation at All.

Iran Working to Purchase New Front on Israel

 

Iran will be using some amount of their coming new found wealth which with its sales of oil and weapons will be a renewable funding starting with the billions it will receive right up front after the deal passes the Congress either outright or through inability to override Presidential veto. There have been credible reports that Hezballah has been once again actively seeking to convert members of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades into cells which Iran can control to perform shooting attacks and eventually planting IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) which Iran will provide either through teaching these cells the methods for building their own or by providing the knowledge along with the necessary parts and leave the rest to the best trained to do the logistical planning. This recruitment drive, for lack of a better term, is being led by an operative of Hezballah known to Israeli intelligence named Qais Obeid, an Israeli-Arab and grandson of former Knesset member Diyab Obeid. These recruitment efforts by Hezballah has been an ongoing threat which of late has been more vigorous thus making it a potential new and more active terrorist front which will require additional intelligence gathering and interventions. In the past these efforts may have had some begrudging assistance from Fatah and Palestinian Authority as allowing Hezballah to become overly influential in Judea and Samaria would erode Palestinian Authority and Mahmoud Abbas’s authority. Meanwhile, this is an inroad which Iran has already set in motion to increase their threat potential against Israel and in their mind another way to place additional pressures against Israel and thus make any attack on their nuclear facilities less likely. Increasing the near threat thus making the more distant threat appear less of a pressing issue may be behind these Iranian efforts.

 

Mahmoud Abbas may be another problem that requires steps to be addressed. Abbas is preparing to make a visit to Tehran, Iran. This visit will definitely have a discussion of recruiting Fatah and potentially buying the entirety of the Palestinian Authority outright. This may be part of the reason that Abbas has distanced and may further distance himself from the being the head of certain elements within the Palestinian Authority structures, as convoluted as that structure may appear. This may be in preparation to allow Iran to have its influence over certain political and terrorist entities while allowing for the majority of the Palestinian Authority, including the authority itself, to come outside obvious Iranian control and thus remain easily supportable by their European and other Western backing and funding while turning over critical terror networks to Iranian influence or even outright control. Iran is almost desperate to open a reliable front against Israel other than Hezballah which already had too much on its plate with Syria, Iraq and even reports of some Hezballah assisting the Houthis in Yemen and now a new front with Islamic State appearing to organize and gain influence of Sunnis in Lebanon who have reached the point of desperation and a represent low hanging fruit just waiting for some supporting influence to provide them with the leadership assistance and weaponization to present a new threat to Hezballah and gain their own front against Israel.

 

This partially represents the new threats approaching from the distant horizons to place themselves right on Israel’s front porch, so to speak. On one side there are the traditional Sunni influences such as Saudi Arabia and the ‘nice’ Palestinians which wear ties and speak peace in English while unsheathing daggers and potentially IEDs when dressed in more traditional garb with their keffiyeh shaped in the form of Israel, a tradition popularized by the late Yasser Arafat which he claimed showed his intention to replace Israel, not share any of the lands as he refused to recognize any Jewish presence as long as he was able to defy the Israeli presence as the State of the Jews. There is likely to be additional pressures felt from both Gaza and Judea and Samaria as the bidding wars increase. We have outlined the potential threats coming from Iran in Judea and Samaria and the on again and currently off again relationship between Iran and Hamas can become active at any time and present an active terror front against Israel. There are likely other influences in Gaza with potential for Iranian meddling such as Islamic Jihad or simply any terror cells who desire greater prominence which a fresh influx of money and arms, especially rocket parts, with which to attack Israel would present an additional threat. Where some would point to such a threat being of minimal importance to which the reply that comes to mind is to inquire at what number of rockets striking Israeli cities and potentially only prevented through interception at the minimal price of near twenty-thousand-dollars per interceptor fired. With rockets being priced to manufacture between fifty dollars to as much as at the most a thousand dollars, how many of the midrange priced rockets at say two-hundred-dollars or less does an Iranian backed group need to fire before they become more than a menace, and this does not count those that strike and murder Israeli families, at what point are rockets over the border sufficient to trigger a greater response? How many rockets fired at your neighborhood would be considered a minor menace, an inconvenience, something that you would be capable of simply living with the minor inconvenience of hearing a siren in the middle of the night or while your children are walking to or from school, a favorite time for rocket launches into Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, how many would you accept. Well, that should be the same answer for Israeli communities as Jewish and Israeli lives matter! All lives matter providing they are also living by that credo.

 

Live and let live is a nice theory to live by despite the murderous intentions of your neighbors, but after three-thousand-years of neighbors intent on murdering every single Israeli and Jew which included conquest at any price, we have seen it throughout time and will not go quietly, that can be a promise we will keep. We have had our survival instincts molded and hardened by the Egyptian Pharaohs, the Hittites, the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Islamic invasions, the Crusaders, the near constant wars where the Jews were a primary target by both sides between of Islam against the Crusaders. These were followed by the various European and Islamic states throughout the Dark and Middle Ages, expulsions from Russian pogrom, Spanish Inquisition, Purification of France, the Religious Purges by both Catholic and Protestant Monarchs, the Protestant Reformation in the German City-States, Pogroms throughout all of Europe; the Jizyah of the Arab, Muslim and Ottoman City-States and Empires. Then was a defining slaughter known as the Shoah by the Nazis, and then pogroms and disenfranchising by the various Muslims States after the formation of Israel. Coming into the present we are targeted by Iran, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PLO, Fatah, and the too numerous to name other assaults with the intent on conquest, wholesale conversions, eradication of Judaism and other threats be they from ancient history or about to spring at our throats tomorrow. Enough is enough and Never Again will Jews take such threats without a fight as we have no weapon against the most insidious of all threats, assimilation and the loss of Jewish identity which accompanies such. I realize that was a long sentence but we Jews have a very long history and very little of the time were we left in peace. The present is not proving to be much of an improvement. Name me one nation which has been historically and is presently under direct threat of being eradicated once again. Another exile may very well turn Judaism into a small cultish religion practiced by small pockets of religious Jews who will all still remain under threats for their annihilation through many different means and only surviving by the will of Hashem. We will not go into that dark night without a fight, a great effort to do whatever it takes to remain in the light of assurance through strength of our own lands, of Israel.

 

The power struggle in our, what almost needs to be defined as internal threats, is that of those Arabs which desire the destruction of Israel. They exist in the obvious camps in Gaza including Hamas and Islamic Jihad as well as smaller groups sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda, Islamic State, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and assuredly more; in Judea and Samaria including PLO, Fatah, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, al-Qaeda, Islamic State, Hezballah and other smaller groups some only comprised of a single or couple of cells; the threats from across the border from the numerous forces in Syria from Bashir al-Assad to al-Qaeda groups, Islamic State (they have become a larger than normal terrorist run state centrally located to keep their fingers in a large number of pies), Muslim Brotherhood, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC and an actual number of troops which are an elite corps from within the Iranian religious and fanatical organized army which is as large and well-funded as their regular army), Hezballah in Lebanon and Syria, Islamic State and Muslim Brotherhood within the Sinai Peninsula, and cells which hold Israeli identification cards and many of which who vote and run candidates for seats in the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset. Needless to say, Israel is kept busy and that is before the overt external threats being fomented on our borders with their monies or fanaticisms such as Islamic State (in addition to the terror threat they pose), and Iran with their now fully blessed and open for business arms programs and their under the radar parallel nuclear research and arms production sites which very likely include nuclear warhead development and production along with the rockets to place them upon. We can assume that after Mahmoud Abbas completes his precedent setting Tehran visit which will very likely include the agreement, signed or simply a non-gentleman’s agreement made with a deferential bow and handshake to give over to Iran control over part or an entire substructure of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades or other groups controlled by Abbas himself or by other terror masters within the political tangled web conceived in deceit with its main purpose being deception and allowing for setting up a high degree of believable deniable plausibility for any and every person in a leadership position. The entire apparatus which makes up the Palestinian Authority even currently includes Hamas and Islamic Jihad while working against them in the favor of PLO, al-Aqsa Martyrs and other cells utilized for attacks which must never be traced back to any political entity thus these groups’ names are kept secret until it is required to permit the leadership of the various disparate terror entities and political entities, forever are they attached through finances, all a jumbled mass of confusion. With Abbas having resigned as the head of the PLO planning board or some such title from amongst his numerous leadership positions granting it for the interim to Saab Erekat, actually Saab Erekat has replaced Mahmoud Abbas as Chair of the Secretary-General of PLO placing him in direct line to assume leadership of the entirety of the Palestinian Authority once Mahmoud Abbas steps down and retires from the scene.

 

Months after stepping down from all, or nearly all, of the leadership positions currently held by Abbas, he will then return becoming something even Yasser Arafat never achieved, becoming the Elder Statesman for the Palestinian Authority and in such position he will make himself available to speak to any ruling body the world over including even more frequent trips to the White House and potentially demanding and receiving the coveted position of addressing a joint session of the United States Congress within a week of two of any address so given by any Israeli official, especially any Prime Minister and particularly the current Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu. We would be expecting to see Mahmoud Abbas giving bi-monthly addresses to the General Assembly of the United Nations, the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC), and any other international organization especially those tasked with determining War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity all as part of a carefully planned and scripted series of addresses culminating each year with his address at the opening ceremonies of the United Nations General Assembly where he will open the idea for a new provision to be enacted by that body denouncing Israeli existence and fortifying the Palestinian position of claiming all the lands and having domain over all of the land as the Arab struggle has been and always will be the eradication of Israel and a wiping of the Jews from the Middle East and then the rest of the world. This has been the root of the vicious and vengeful hatreds which only allow for the complete destruction of Israel and the figuratively making Jerusalem the Capital City of the coming Caliphate instead of the Capital and Holiest of Cities to the Jewish People.

 

Within Israel there has been a political development which warrants some discussions. The recent dust-up caused by the release of a taped interview with Ehud Barak which cast aspersions on a number of political rivals which might likely stand between him and another run at being Prime Minister and the only person to defeat Bibi Netanyahu twice for Prime Minister. While Ehud Barak mostly stated that the reasons behind Israeli strikes on Iranian nuclear sites were not carried out in the entirety of his time as Minister of Defense were attributable largely to Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, the then-chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), who claimed the Israeli military he commanded had not trained sufficiently nor was it in any condition to face all of the potential consequences which might befall Israel after such an attack, and also placed a degree of blame on current Defense Minister and then Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon as well as current Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources and then member of the Inner Cabinet of Eight Yuval Steinitz as well as members of the Inner Cabinet Dan Meridor and Bennie Begin making it impossible to gain a five vote majority necessary to take it to the next level. Ehud Barak talked about Netanyahu’s weakness mostly due to not being capable of pressing through his plans for an attack on the known Iranian facilities and potentially other targets related to governance or military command and control.

These events, including secondary releases from the taped interview being released, have raised suspicions that Ehud Barak believes and has started acting on another run for the golden ring, the Office of Prime Minister. First item on that path is to retake the leadership of the Labor Party, something he is expected to be opposed by Isaac Herzog, Shelly Yachimovich and potentially former Commander of the IDF and retired Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi who is the most feared challenge facing a Ehud Barak triumphant return to politics. Should Ehud Barak actually try to make a comeback we can bet that he will use the inaction against Iran and his hawkish views and decisiveness which he will claim was a certainty in his mind despite what those around him felt. There will be little mention on Judea and Samaria plans which, if memory serves me correctly, Barak is in agreement with Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni that Israel would be best served by the formation of an Arab state in virtually all of the lands of Judea and Samaria as well as Eastern Jerusalem claiming that such would end the terrorist threats from that area allowing Israel to concentrate all of her resources both military and political to prevent Iran from ever developing and producing nuclear weapons. Ehud Barak’s hopes that surrendering the ancient lands which hold most of the Israeli holiest locations starting with the Temple Mount and the Old City of Jerusalem, Hevron, the Cave of Machpelah, the Tomb of Joseph, the Tomb of Rachel, near countless Synagogues, Shechem, the City of David and many others as this is just to name a few. Further, relenting control and giving such to the Arab dominion will lead to the desecration of everything Jewish which means that Israelis will be required to sneak into these places under the cover of darkness and repair and restore the tombs and other places. With some being almost totally destroyed or restructured such as placing minarets at the four corners of a Synagogue and repurposing it as a Mosque, permanently destroying any Jewish character that building may have held making it Jewish, these building could only be reclaimed by taking a meaningful act of terror traceable to within Judea and Samaria and just annex them once they have been liberated from Islamic occupation.

 

 

Isaac Herzog, Shelly Yachimovich and former Commander of the IDF retired Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi are the expected Labor Candidates Barak would need to defeat if he is to run against Netanyahu in any upcoming elections.

Such is not a new action taken by Muslims as they performed such an abomination on the Hagia Sophia Cathedral and it was transformed into the Hagia Sophia Mosque. That would be the fate of many of the Christian and Jewish holy sites and giving them the land will not bring a moment of peace but would embolden them to press even harder as terrorism got them the lands thus far, maybe the rest is almost in sight. That would be their interpretation of Israel gifting them all of Judea and Samaria that they claim as their lands as they do to the rest of Israel. Such a move would also embolden Iran as they would also view such a surrender of lands rightfully Israeli would simply reinforce that the Jewish People had no stomach for a prolonged fight thus simply by opposing them long enough and they would become weak-willed and gift to its adversaries the surrender they demand, to an Islamist such is but an invitation.

 

Third Temple placed on Temple Mount adjacent to the Dome of the Rock in space that is currently open areas leaving more than sufficient room for tourism and worshippers of all faiths to visit and enjoy every religious building. It will; however, leave far less room for youth to play soccer which many might claim is a good thing.

Even when confronted with the testimony of historic facts many refuse to see the obvious. Such would be far less of a tragedy if only they would not bring our downfall alongside those who surrender that which is rightfully Israeli by every legal code and international law known to mankind. They are flaunting these international laws and agreements simply because the Israeli governance is permitting their perfidy through its cowardice and concerns for what the world thinks. We can tell you what the world thinks, they believe the Jews will cut their own throats if given a sharp enough knife rather than to turn that knife upon their adversaries. That is what they believe and all too many Israelis, especially in high office in the government, military and security services, prove their assessment right day in and day out. This foolish idea that the dragon can be dealt with if we just make this one additional sacrifice, there will always be one more sacrifice demanded of us until we are all dead and buried. When do the Jewish People make their stand, tell me when, please make it soon.
