What Should Israel do to Mitigate the Portman Controversy?

 

Before even approaching this subject, it will be necessary to make an assessment of why Ms. Natalie Portman decided to refuse the 2018 Genesis Prize. Initially, she had appeared to be extremely excited and honored to be receiving this prize and looking forward to the ceremony despite the fact that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu would also appear and make a speech. She initially had no problem sharing the stage with the Prime Minister, the same person she claimed was impossible for her to appear alongside as part of her reasons for refusing the award subsequently. Early last November she exclaimed, “I am deeply touched and humbled by this honor. I am proud of my Israeli roots and Jewish heritage; they are crucial parts of who I am.” Additionally she reacted, “I am particularly inspired by the opportunity to make an impact on women’s issues in Israel…Israel has already achieved much in terms of social and economic development, education and science, and we can all be rightfully proud of it as Jews…” And a last quote of her reaction is as follows, “It is such a privilege to be counted among the outstanding Laureates whom I admire so much. I express my heartfelt gratitude to the Genesis Prize Foundation, and look forward to using the global platform it provides to make a difference in the lives of women in Israel and beyond.” These quote came care of INTO THE FRAY: Natalie Portman as a symptom written by Dr. Martin Sherman, an opinion author we often read and have found to often put forth profound thought.

We have established that initially Ms. Portman was eager, honored and desirable of receiving the Genesis Prize. So, what happened? Her initial claim was that the violence on the Gaza border was a large mitigating factor and that she found the Israeli actions abhorrent and she could no longer receive the award. Portman said later in a statement posted on Instagram, “Let me speak for myself. I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation,” Up to this point, her reasoning was purely political but confusing as she knew when she initially was reacting to being chosen that, as we already stated, knew that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu would be attending and making a speech and sharing the stage. But then she goes off the rails making a vacuous statement which starts with a completely incorrect claim that Israel was founded to be a refuge for the survivors of the Holocaust. We have to take into consideration that she is an actress whose fame is for her physical appearance and ability to repeat lines with the proper emotion, definitely a talent but not necessarily requiring any actual knowledge of history, something often proven by today’s actors and actresses. Israel was set into motion by the 1917 Balfour Declarations and codified in the 1922 San Remo Conference and restated in further treaties and the Mandate System set in place by the League of Nations and all recognized under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Her following statement goes, “Israel was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from today’s atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power.” This last statement is definitively telling and on this we shall discuss as it describes Ms. Portman’s refusal, the support of the BDS Movement by the late Stephen Hawking and the numerous performers, both actors and musicians, who have cancelled tour appearances or declined making appearances in Israel, particularly Tel Aviv which is largely secular and very liberal.

 

What happens often in these cases is that the BDS Movement has a system which is largely financed by the Arab League and numerous Arab nations and which was initiated by the PLO when they supported boycotting Israel which was quickly adopted by the Arab League and eventually was transformed into the BDS Movement as the Arab boycott of Israel was too restrictive and the BDS Movement took the Arab boycott into the leftist mainstream. Since then, the BDS Movement has gained in sophistication and financing has increased and numerous leftist NGOs have adopted the BDS boycott of Israel. Some of the groups supporting BDS Movement against Israel include; Black Lives Matter, International Solidarity Movement, Olive Tree Initiative, Palestine Summer Encounter, IfNotNow, Adalah, Campus Action Network, Christian Peacemaker, Friends of Sabeel, Interfaith Peace Builders, National Lawyers Guild, Presbyterian Synod, Rachel Corrie Foundation For Peace and Justice, US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, United Church of Christ Palestine/Israel Network, United Methodist General Board of Church and Society, Women in Black, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Council on American Islamic Relations, If Americans Knew, Muslim Public Affairs Committee, Muslim Students Association, Council for the National Interest, International ANSWER, International Socialist Organization, Jews For Justice For Palestinians, La Voz De Azatlan, La Raza, Middle East Studies Association, Nation of Islam, Veterans For Peace, Who Profits and finally, of no surprise, the American Nazi Party. Then, of course, there are numerous people of wealth who also assist financing the BDS Movement which can be found here along with a more complete list of organizations and NGOs as we only took the majority of those listed. Still, with these numerous mostly leftist organizations, there is no problem getting people to volunteer to make phone calls to whomever is the target of the moment, send e-mails from as many accounts as each has set up for their use, and make other communications making the target believe that there are millions who would never buy their albums, books or other goods or services or would no longer go to movies or plays in which they appear which can make some weaken and decide it is not worth one stop on their tour to risk this loss of support. But for others, such as Ms. Portman, there is another force in play and this is what we believe likely is what was largely behind her rejection of the award, namely peer pressures. The Hollywood crowd is not exactly known for their support of Israel just as they are not known for their support of President Trump. Israel’s main crime is that first off it is a very religious nation which in Hollywood means they are backward and ignorant. Further, Israel has repeatedly elected conservative governance which is another sign of retardation and a sick population in the minds of the mental giants in Hollywood. The real problem is that Hollywood has a herd mentality and the leadership has decidedly chosen the far left to the point that to be part of the “in crowd” in Hollywood, you have to pass a litmus test proving that you are a strong leftist and believe as the politics chosen by the crowd. Part of that politics is to support all the leftist political movements which includes the BDS Movement because it supports the Muslims who it has been decided are the downtrodden and victims in the world as well as being thought to be people of color despite the fact that being a Muslim says nothing about your pigmentation as it is a religion, not a race. Still, this measure makes Israel the greatest evil on the planet as the Muslims desire that Israel be eradicated and thus to be part of the accepted crown in Hollywood, you must hate Israel. Ms. Portman was likely informed by numerous of her “friends” that she must refuse this “Israel” award, especially if she desired to be invited to the “in” parties or be considered for any future roles in movies for the rest of her life. Simply put, she was likely threatened by her community that this would be considered an unconscionable sin which would be inexcusable and be held against her forevers. This is our theory and it has been a systemic problem with many concerts being cancelled for their Tel Aviv or Jerusalem appearances which has been effective for many newer bands while many of the old rock-n-roll bands have simply ignored or stated outright that they will perform in Israel, BDS be damned.

 

Now, as our title stated, what can Israel do to mitigate this effect? There are many who claim that Israel need invest far more funds in external affairs to fight against these efforts and work to put the Israel reality story into the public discourse. This would be a possible means for Israel to combat this and there are many who are out there, us included, telling the Israel reality and standing up for Israel. The question to ask is how much Israel should put into such a program to make it successful? Well, at least as much as is invested against Israel. Were Israel to do such, then the Saudis, the NGOs, the European Union and many member nations, the United Nations, and numerous billionaires will simply double down and Israel cannot keep pace and still have any funds left for anything else, especially for the IDF. Israel cannot keep pace with the funds put up against her so that is not an issue. Even if Israel were to triple the funds and efforts into such policies, they would be but a small drip compared to the tsunami her detractors are spending. Perhaps having those people with famous names could be encouraged to stand stronger and louder in their support would help. The other side has the trump numbers and could bring far more people to the floor through intimidation or simply depending on true believers. The only thing Israel can do to protect herself is to continue to be the most moral nation and work within the systems which already give her legal right to the lands west of the Jordan River. What would likely surprise even the supporters of Israel is that it would be legal for Israel to deport the Palestinian Arabs into Jordan from the entire Shomron without so much as a how do you do. This would be just as legal as the deporting of the German people in the lands Poland was awarded after World War II and from the lands France was awarded after World War I. It would be legal just as the two populations which were exchanged between India and Pakistan after the founding of Pakistan. There were a number of population exchanges made in the world within the last century and should have occurred when Israel liberated the Shomron and Gaza Strip during the Six Day War in July of 1967. The Arabs in the Gaza Strip would have been displaced into the Sinai Peninsula or into Egypt. Technically, under the rules of warfare, since Israel was responding to a breach of the treaty by Egypt who blockaded the Straits of Tiran in the Red Sea which was a casus belli as an act of war. This made all the actions by Israel during the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War legal and Israel should have been permitted to retain all the land Israel deemed necessary or desirous for her defense and future requirements. This means that Israel could have retained the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula and forced the Egyptians residing there to move across the Suez Canal into Egypt and that would have been legal. This is how the Rules of War read since they were agreed upon through World War I. Since then, the main alteration has been that lands gained in a defensive war may be held until decisions are reached between the involved nations in a formal peace treaty. The aggrieved nation which was attacked, they are permitted to retain the land they gained should this be coded in the peace treaty and cannot be forced to return the lands otherwise. This is why Israel could only be required to return land and not all the land after the Six Day War as encoded in UNSC Res. 242. The Egypt treaty surrendered the formerly occupied Gaza Strip and the peace with Jordan surrendered all of the formerly occupied Shomron, the lands west of the Jordan River. Once the people in Gaza had been moved into Egypt and the people in the Shomron moved into Jordan, that should have been the end of everything. The world decided they could not live with Israel being permitted the same rights of other nations which had been established over the years. Israel had been promised the lands west of the Jordan River which she possessed when founded in May of 1948 until she was attacked by six Arab armies intent on the eradication of the Jewish State and genocide of the Jews within the nascent state.

 

Israel survived that assault but lost the area of the Shomron and Gaza Strip including half of Jerusalem including the entirety of the Old City. The Jews residing in the lost territories were forced from their properties mostly without taking their belongings and their homes were gifted to the favored of the King of Jordan. Jordan then destroyed the Synagogues and the Mount of Olives cemetery and other Jewish properties. The marker stones from the Jewish cemeteries were taken and used as paving stones and for making bathrooms intended as insult to the dead Jews. When Israel regained the Old City and the Temple Mount all of the holy sites were found in poor repair and the entirety of Eastern Jerusalem was found to be mostly a ruin with everything broken and in disarray. Since then, Israel has revitalized the entire region and repaired the holy sites, rebuilt some of the Synagogues and some are still in the planning stage and will be rebuilt with time. Some were so completely destroyed that they are not being rebuilt. Water systems and electrical systems have been repaired and improved and waste systems repaired with new treatment facilities built. The entirety of East Jerusalem has been modernized while taking care to keep as much of the original structures intact or repaired as necessary. The Palestinian Arabs were established with one intent, the complete destruction to destroy all of Israel. This was in the original charter of the PLO and remains in the charter of Hamas and Islamic Jihad while the Arab League still calls for the destruction of Israel and Iran has stated their desire to destroy Israel as well as the United States. Perhaps the United Nations would do something unprecedented and honor their Charter, in particular, Article 80 which claimed that they would enforce the Mandate System which would imply that they would recognize the lands west of the Jordan River as belonging rightfully to Israel. Such a decision might end the problems which have been behind the Arab-Israeli conflict should the United Nations in the Security Council recognize the Jordan River as the eastern border of Israel and support the resettlement of the Palestinian Arabs either in Jordan or allow them to choose whichever Arab nations or nation which would accept them allowing their removal from the land of Israel, something eminently legal under the laws of war. For those who wish to apply the Geneva Convention to the Arab-Israeli conflict, since the lands of the Shomron were occupied by Jordan and Jordan definitely attacked Israel as part of the Six Day War making Israel the aggrieved nation, Israel is the only nation with a true claim to the lands west of the Jordan River. Facts can be sticky objects, and these are the facts. As for Gaza, Israel surrendered claim to Gaza and Hamas took Gaza in a coup, thus if the world really desires to make a Palestinian State, Gaza would serve well and it could be called one of many names. Allow us to suggest a few; there could be Hamastan, Islamasstan, Gazastan, Terrorville or Hamastania.

Arab Summit Lays Traps for Trump and Israel

 

The 29th Arab Summit which adjourned April 15, 2018, has been panned by many as having provided President Trump with a great opportunity to finalize and end the Arab-Israeli conflict. Their resolution which was the main subject on their final days all but ignored the conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Bahrain and Sudan, giving them scant attention. Their statement released gave full attention to the Palestinian situation declaring, “We reaffirm that the Palestine Cause is the entire Arab nation’s main priority, stressing the Arab identity of occupied East Al-Quds as the capital of the State of Palestine.” Their mention of East al-Quds is a restatement of the Arab laying claim to eastern quarter of Jerusalem which includes the Old City and the Temple Mount with all the holy sites of three religions. One small item which bears great weight on their claim is the way Jordan refused to permit Jews at all times and Christians and other non-Muslims access to any of the holy areas of the Old City including the Temple Mount and the desecrations which caused the grave markers of the Mount of Olives cemetery to be strewn and broken utilized as paving stones and to construct bathrooms. This was the Jordanian idea of full and equal access for all religions which has only been realized since 1967 after Israel liberated their occupied territories from Jordan who had illegally held these areas since the 1948 war to eradicate the Jewish State which failed but still managed to steal away lands belonging to the Jewish State under the San Remo Conference and the treaties which followed. Should the world desire that the Temple Mount remain accessible to all, then the Arab Summit trap must be sidestepped and the Arabs denied their supersessionist demands. Their statement put their demands succinctly and in full claiming, “The conflict could be ended through a two-state solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of July 4, 1967, with East Al-Quds as its capital.” The demand that the borders be set as they were on the day before the Arab attacks started the Six Day War where Israel liberated her formerly Arab occupied lands as well as the Sinai Peninsula, the region returned to Egypt in exchange for peace. The Arab Summit is demanded a complete reset of the situation which brought on the Arab assault to destroy Israel on July 5, 1967, something which completely ignores all previous treaties and agreements which all allowed Israel to retain lands such that Israel have a defendable border. The borders of July 4, 1967, would not allow for Israel to be defendable as it would leave Tel Aviv in direct range of the Judean Hills and a mere nine miles from Arab forces standing on the high ground overlooking most of Israeli infrastructure.

 

Let us look first at the United Nations Security Council and their suggested solution laid out in United Nations Security Council Resolution 242, the carefully worded plan for the basis in resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. The clause which has caused the most bafflement and confusion within the debates states, “Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict;” which was debated to great extent with Hugh Mackintosh Foot, Baron Caradon taking the center stage in the debate on the wording of the resolution. Allow us to quote from this in depth article explaining Lord Caradon’s reasoning and purpose for his wording, “Much play has been made of the fact that we didn’t say “the” territories or “all the” territories. But that was deliberate. I myself knew very well the 1967 boundaries and if we had put in the “the” or “all the” that could only have meant that we wished to see the 1967 boundaries perpetuated in the form of a permanent frontier. This I was certainly not prepared to recommend.” Lord Caradon was specific that Israel was not to be forced to return to the same borders present on July 4, 1967, which was a major cause of the Six Day War. Many believe that the real intent of UNSC Res 242 was to have Israel return parts of the Sinai Peninsula, possibly allowing the Israel border to follow along the central mountain spine of the Sinai Peninsula and to have the Jordan River as the Israeli eastern border. Needless to point out, the Arabs have always stated this resolution claiming it actually states either, “the territories” or worse, “all the territories” while refusing to recognize the actual wording of simply “territories” allowing for the Israeli borders to be altered providing Israel with the additional territory to provide her defensible borders with the strategic depth required to do so. At a minimum, the vast majority of military strategists agree that for Israel to have the strategic depth and a defensible border, Israel should necessarily continue to hold the lands east of the Jordan River, the high grounds overlooking the Jordan Valley as well as the high grounds overlooking central Israel from the Judean Heights (see the cutaway showing the tactical necessities). President Trump had best familiarize himself with the tedious and specific arguments and deliberations which contributed to the formalized final draft of UNSC Res 242 before finalizing any presentation of his Deal of the Century so that he avoids falling into the Arab Summit laid trap.

The Arab Summit has produced the only solution the Arabs, including the Palestinian Authority, have ever claimed will work and even then they make that conditional. They make a point to stress that they “affirm the illegality of the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” as such a recognition also makes a recognition of the existence of the State of Israel, something the Arab World still rejects and refuses to recognize. They further emphasize this with their declaration, “we categorically refuse to recognize Jerusalem (Al-Quds) as the capital of Israel, where East Al-Quds will remain the capital State of Palestine. We warn against taking any action that would change the current legal and political status of Al-Quds.” The Arab Summit did not miss the opportunity to blame Israel for the entirety of the situation claiming, “will end the political stalemate resulting from the intransigence of Israeli positions.” The most dangerous of the Arab Summit statements was their unwillingness to positively end the unstableness of the area and the conflict the Arabs insist on continuing against Israel until they succeed in destroying the Jewish State. This was made evident in their posturing with, “The conflict could be ended through a two-state solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of 4 July 1967 with East Al-Quds as its capital.”

 

Allow us to now get a tad upset with the entirety of the Arab Summit declarations over three words, “could be ended,” and not would be ended or shall be ended or anything to indicate finality of the agreement in cementing a complete and total end to the Arab-Jewish Conflict, and make no pretense, that is the reality of the conflict. The Arab Summit insists on continuing their denial of the right of the Jews to self-determination. The sad part is that most of Europe also does not recognize the right of the Jews to self-determination. According to Islam, the driving force behind the lives of the Arab World, the Jews are forever Dhimmi, second-class citizens with limited rights, needing to be cared for by their betters, the believers of Islam. In Europe, this was initially driven by the Church which believed they had replaced the Jews as the Chosen People and the Jews being rejected by Hashem were now considered as followers of the devil and accursed. This belief has carried on through the Reformation to the numerous Protestant forms of Christianity and has been accepted by secularist in Europe, as it has become second nature to both Europe and the Islamic World of the MENA* states. Both Christianity and Islam have a problem with the existence of Israel in that should the Jews return to their ancient homeland and prove the prophesy that the Jewish People would be gathered again to Eretz Yisroel, then the idea that Christianity replaced Judaism and that Islam replaced both in both cases because the formers had a better and more final version of the Word of Hashem, then this becomes challenged as the original Word of Hashem of Judaism becomes reestablished. This makes Israel a threat to both faiths with an interesting exception of Christianity which has embraced the return of the Jews to their ancient homelands as one of the precursors for the coming of the Messiah. In Christianity, that return is the “Second Coming” while in Judaism it is the initial coming of the Messiah.

 

This problem that the Arab Summit nations refuse to accept the existence of Israel and use the phrase, “could be ended,” instead of accepting any agreement as a final and acceptable end to hostility, such as terrorism, warfare, rocket attacks or Iranian nuclear attack, they leave open the intent and near certainty that all of these aggressions are to be continued. That is not peace by any definition; they are simply demanding a reset of the borders to the most advantageous set of borders for their attempts to erase Israel. This is not an offer of peace but a guarantee of ever-continuing warfare and violence in all of its numerous variations. The only peace which can be had would be to find a means of having the Palestinian Arabs in the Shomron to be returned their Jordanian citizenship and their being given enticements to move to Jordan or find a new homeland which will accept them and the granting of citizenship to the refugees by the nation where they reside as their camps are more like neighborhoods with apartments and stores surrounded by barbed wire. If the refugees were also permitted to choose where they are to reside, all of them outside of Israel being the only stipulation, even given some enticement which would likely cost less than one year’s funding of UNRWA** and the aid sent to the Palestinian Authority. This would have the advantage of finality ending this seventy-year plus struggle, but the Arabs will not accept any finality in which Israel remains and Jews have self-determination. This is, unfortunately, the position taken by many nations in the world whenever there is a vote in the United Nations. In reality, Israel is far more accepted when it comes to international relations as Israel has embassies in over one-hundred-fifty nations. Israel is a healthy nation with a thriving and growing economy and has given the world many wonderful discoveries as well as being amongst, if not the, first nation to arrive after there has been a disaster, natural or otherwise, anywhere in the world when permitted by the government, providing aid, search and rescue and often a field hospital which has functional departments for virtually any service a full sized hospital offers. Israel is a member nation in the United Nations despite being deprived of normalcy due to the Arab World and the European nations both of which do whatever they are able to prevent Israel sitting on the Security Council or to be a member, let alone chair, and of the numerous United Nations agencies. It is because of these irrational acts of belligerence against Israel often exemplified by the actions of the United Nations Agencies such as the Human Rights Commission, UNESCO, UNICEF and especially the General Assembly that Israel should fear the world accepting the phrasing, “could be ended,” as actually meaning an end to the violence and an actual peace treaty. Israel is being served by the Arab Summit a guarantee of continued violence with intent to destroy the Jewish State depriving Jews of self-determination and depriving them of life and only allowing the Jews of Israel the peace of the grave, not a peace of arms. Of course, Arab selectivity of decisions, declarations, resolutions and even wording where the words must be as they perceive them and not as they were approved, comes to the fore with their rejection of President Trump, including his recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital City of Israel, and their complete acceptance of President Obama and especially his claims that Jerusalem was actual al-Quds and that Israel must return to the July 4, 1967 lines; yet it is Israeli rejectionism that is the problem and Arab rejection of Israel is absolutely natural and completely understandable and utterly defensible, thus whatever the Arab Summit decides must be accepted as completely fair and just why Israel must be rejected as an abomination. Please excuse us if we refuse to accept Arab rejectionism concerning Israel and their demands that Jews accept their Dhimmi status.

Israeli Predicament with the World

 

Once again the world is teetering on the brink of another disastrous attempt to press a Middle East grand plan for peace. Do not misinterpret this as the idea that Israel is against making peace as there is nothing the Israelis desire more than a real and just peace. On the other hand what they fear is the concept being once again driven that if only Israel were to surrender further and just find that correct balance of sacrificed level of secure area while giving away dangerous high grounds and leaving from the areas where her intelligence gathering has proven sufficient to prevent another disastrous terror war as well as preventing the replacement of the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) governance by Hamas or the potentially worse Islamic State replacing Abbas in another coup just as they did Gaza placing all Israel under mortal threat, then there would be peace and no further threat to Europe. Under the world’s radar Israel has prevented any number of schemes to forcibly replace the somewhat milder terrorist PA, and do not ever lose sight of this fact that the PA is a terror entity, with the religiously fanatical Hamas or Islamic State over the last decade since giving that same PA control over Gaza which they lost in a quick but deadly putsch by Hamas allied with Islamic Jihad and the Muslim Brotherhood which brought onto Israel a number of ever increasingly dangerous terror rocket wars. These all proceeded in the same methodology of a slow ramping over weeks leading to months of rockets being fired into southern Israel and eventually in this last war reaching Jerusalem and Tel Aviv all the way up the coast to Haifa. This slowly raising the terror rocket temperature to slowly boil Israeli in the pan of explosive projectiles while not disturbing the media always received little if any coverage only when there was loss of life or such loss being achieved through apparent miracles succeeded in its aim of stealth. This always led to the first mentioning of any violence always came when Israel was finally forced to use the IDF at a high level of force to end the hundreds of rockets raining down on Israeli towns, farms, kibbutzim and into its industrial heart.

 

The same being able to be directed from the overlooking Judean Hills would be more devastating to Israel than any story realized thus far. Hundreds to over a thousand and approaching two thousand rockets and now missiles being launched and directed from the heights overlooking central Israel where almost three out of four Israelis reside and over eighty percent of her industrial and power generating power is centralized and the shuttering of Ben Gurion International Airport would be ruinous for Israel and an assault from which she would take decades upon decades to recover from assuming recovery were even an option. Such an assault would cause a mass and panicked race for the borders of potentially the majority of the Israeli population which could send ripples through the IDF as soldiers moved with their families to anywhere outside the range of the rocket and missile threat. The Arab forces would then have an IDF in disarray and weakened state with the backing of her reserves likely decimated by the exodus to safety. This would be the exact scenario should the French initiative prove to be the grand success that they believe they are targeting and what President Obama might just utilize as a last grand push for peace and a second Nobel Peace Prize as well as cementing his legacy as the President that brought ruination in the form of a grand peace to the Jewish State. Trust that should the Jewish State of Israel be erased from the map, the actual desired end of the Palestinian and Arab peace plans, the Nobel Committee would be beside themselves is glorious celebration that that perceived thorn in the side of a true and lasting peace and end to all Arab terror had finally arrived that they would be handing out Nobel Peace Prizes like candy on Halloween.

 

The reality would turn out to be something quite different. With Israel out of the way the first casualty would be Cyprus followed by Crete and on to the Grecian Islands leaving an Islamic beachhead in the heart of Europe which was not dependent on Turkey or Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan whose desire to lead the next Caliphate relied on Turkey being the Islamic beachhead. Such a situation would also illicit an advance through Sicily and up the Italian Peninsula where the two thrusts would meet once again at Vienna except this time the city would fall. This would in turn permit a push northward across the Balkans and into Austria, Poland and Germany then turning westward through France and into Spain and northward into Britain. This would inevitably lead to the invasion of Scandinavia and finally the push from the west and south into the heart of Russia. This scenario is how the Islamic Caliphate which would have been formed would anticipate such a conquest aided by the millions of advanced troops using the refugees as their regular soldiers and shock troops starting internal strife and rioting escalating as the Islamic forces approached spreading each national military and law enforcement thinly defending the country from forces external and internal simultaneously. The only variable is how far into such a scenario would the remainder of Europe awaken? Assuming that such a scenario were planned and executed over a number of decades the Europeans would be slowly devoured and likely never awaken from their war weary slumbers.

 

Fortunately the forces of the coming Islamic expansion will be anything but inexorably slow and planned for minimal upheaval attempting to weaken each region internally before striking as the saviors from rioting and terror. Instead there will be an explosion of terror and rioting across much of Europe upon the conquest of the Grecian Isles and the spread into the Balkan States. Romania will be one nation which will likely be bypassed as the perception of a bitter and long struggle will linger from wars past and initially Romania might be bypassed and the assaults strike headlong into Poland and Germany while North African arm assaults Sicily and the Italian peninsula. As this will be one persistent assault and conquest, the sleeping Europe will likely awaken and unite this time before the situation has deteriorated beyond repair. Of course this is predicated on nationalist governments being elected as the more leftist socialist humanitarian governance proves inadequate to the task at hand. Such a uniting of an awakened and truly terrified and terrorized Europe with the enlisted assistance of the United States could terminate any advance before the complete fall of Poland and Germany could be completed and the Italian assault closing but not yet in possession of Rome. The Vatican calling for assistance for the sake of the Church and all Christianity could, especially with a Pope from South America, solidify a united Christian front to counter Islam and all future peace would be dependent on one side or the other being completely victorious and vanquishing the other pressing the other religion literally into the recesses of secrecy and potentially all but eradicated from the Earth.

 

Of course this entire scenario can never be carried out as long as the cork is in the bottle and that cork is Israel. The mere existence of Israel stabilizes the immediate area allowing for a moderate and economically focused military nexus in addition to security oriented Egypt and a stable situation in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. A strong Israel also acts as a restraint on Iran and its slowly deteriorating offensive to build a crescent of power across to the Mediterranean Sea through southern Iraq, Syria and Lebanon also gaining a foothold on the Israeli border and potentially striking at Jordan and the PA in order to weaken Israel. Such a scenario coming into fruition would shock and threaten Erdogan and Turkey which, if attacked, could request assistance through NATO treaty obligations bringing the powers of Europe and the United States et al into the fray and likely ending the advance and with it any Iranian hopes for further conquest. Trust that the biggest threat does not come from the Islamic State, though they are a direct threat to peace in the area any time soon, but from a nuclear armed Iran threatening nuclear ruin on any opposition and once nuclear weapons in any form from an EMP device to a hydrogen city killing device, use of such weapons would bring far more than a slap on the wrist and assisting compliant actions from the United States and even Europe. The civilizational conflict of the ages is once again simmering and potentially about to boil over. The quencher who can turn off the burner before anything gets a foothold is a strong Israel. Simply explained, with Israel positioned to be a ruinous force against any supply lines from the Middle East to any European front and the Israeli long arm which can disrupt even shipments intended for Hamas while they are still traversing the Sudan is just further proof that Israel, especially if sided through secretive agreements by Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, has an extended reach and intelligence network such that any overt actions can be anticipated and mitigated.

 

Arab and Muslim World After the Initial Breakout until World War I

 

Arab and Muslim World After the Islamization of Europe except for Switzerland and Israel in Red Both Standing Against any Islamic Assault or Tide

 

The name of the game is to prevent the fall of Europe directly to Islamic forces. That does not mean that Europe is safe as even Israel cannot prevent a European politically correct surrender to the Islamic forces within. The Stealth Jihad has been extremely effective despite not even having any coordinating framework yet established. This is most definitely changing and the race is on between the Muslim Brotherhood, the Wahabbists, Iranian Shiites and the Islamic State as to who will be the puppet master coordinating the terror actions throughout Europe and beyond into the Americas. Iran would be the most dangerous as they would necessarily require changing the dynamics of the entire equation proving to the vast number of Sunni Muslims that their Shiite form of Islam was the preeminent Islamic force and being led by the Mahdi or those sent to prepare for the Mahdi’s arrival which would need to also be sold as imminent. Of course this would require an entire propaganda coup making such an eventuality appear to be within the Iranian grasp but solely by its Shiite narrative within Islam thus giving the Shia Islam the claim of the right path following the strong horse. Until now the strong horse had always been Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Needless to point out, a nuclear armed Iran changes such a scenario once and for all or at the least until the leaders of Sunni Islam develop or procure their own nuclear weapons. Such weapons might very well be utilized by Bashir al-Assad as a final strike weapon of last resort. This is likely to be prevented by the fears of European national reaction which would agitate the European nations and potentially awaken them to the shocking and imminent threat they jointly face.

 

The Europeans and the Americans must open their eyes and realize that Islam is not a religion so much as it is a supremacist document replete with instruction to conquer the entirety of mankind, subjugate them to Islam and utilize Sharia to terrorize the masses of people into submission. There is a reason the Quran requires one to surrender to Islam. That is due to its all-encompassing directives about how to live every minute of one’s life. It invokes a class system which makes social advancement directly related to ones dedication to the precepts of Islam. Islamic teachers will tell people that it has always been the future of mankind and that none may escape the icy hand of Islam as it imposes its dominion over mankind. The ideals of Islam are totalitarian and are blatantly anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-Buddhist, anti-Shinto and against every other religion and other governing structure which does not enforce Islam on all their subjects, their people. It can cause scientific stagnation and potentially lead to regressive scientific knowledge as in its most virulent form, the ones in use today in Saudi Arabia, the Islamic State, Iran, Hamas, Erdogan and all too many others. The individuals attempting to mitigate some of the sharp shards enforced under Islam leads to physical sexual mutilation of women, suppression of all thoughts outside of the Quran and Muhammad’s life, bigamy, honor killing of female (and rare cases of male) members of a family who is believed to have committed a sexual act forbidden in Islam thus detracting from the family name thus requiring their murder, misogyny, slavery (still practiced in some Islamic communities), no religious freedoms, no freedom of speech, no free press or media, no individual liberty, no freedom of thought, the murder of all found to be living a gay or homosexual lifestyle, no deviation from the accepted lifestyle limitations as interpreted by the Imams (which can include bans on such activities as dancing, objectionable lyrics, music, movies, books other than the Quran, singing outside of prayer, clothing restrictions, hair style, beard requirements and other impingements on personal choice) and Islamic supremacy. Islam as it is being applied today is straightforwardly a geopolitical framework for world conquest and domination with no allowance for accepting any other religious or political system to exist throughout the entirety of the world. Islam is banned as a threat to peace, security and general happiness in several nations. It is banned as a practice, a religion, a governing format and is to be fought by these societies wherever it may attempt to root itself within their borders and the closing of exchange be it trade, commercial, movement of people and especially religious leaders as they view Islam as a threat to their way of life and the things they hold dear within their society. These nations also banned Communism for many of the same liberty crushing reasons. Islam demands complete world conquest and subjugation as part of its observance allowing for no other religion or ruling entity other than the Caliphate which is headed by the Mahdi, the supreme Islamic entity.

 

The Islamic final conquest of the world is currently preoccupied with Israel. Their main problem with Israel is multifaceted and starts with the fact that Israel is the land of the Jewish People, strike one. In Islam Judaism is the highest form of evil and must be stamped out. Their final world conquest begins with Israel as it sits on former Islamic lands, strike two. Finally, Israel has a strategic placement which sits at the crux, the joining lands of three continents, Asia, Europe and Africa. Such a strongpoint must be taken before any real conquest of these three continents can be pursued. The Islamic phrase which captures their initial required conquest of Israel does not mention Israel and solely states in Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith 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.” Note it says nothing about Israel, Judea, Jerusalem, al Quds, West Bank, Gaza or any other location but insists on the death for all Jews wherever they may be found and that the Earth herself will reveal the Jews who attempt to hide. One can assume that Islam would also look favorably on the destruction of any groves of Gharqad trees.

Lastly and in closing, allow us to quote Winston Churchill cited a passage said to have been taken from a speech by Churchill, as reproduced in his 1899 book The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan, spoke of Islam stating,

 

I am sending the attached short speech from Winston Churchill, delivered by him in 1899 when he was a young soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many but expressed in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of the English language, of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a Great War leader and Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt. He was a prophet in his own time; He died on 24 January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

“A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

“Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
