It is All a Debate of Dates (Part II)

Part 1

 

The Arabs refuse to recognize anything anywhere in the world where their feet have tread should ever be ruled by any others and must remain an Arab Waqf for all eternity. This is why in many Arab countries a map of the world does not contain the nation of Spain and instead shows a nation named Andalusia. This name was what the Moors who conquered Spain used to name that area and that was the name until 1492 when Ferdinand and Isabella who reconquered Spain for the Church and initiated the infamous Inquisition. This warring between Christianity and Islam had continued for centuries with the most famous were the Crusades to return the Holy Lands for Christianity with their emphasis on Jerusalem and secondary targets of Nazareth and Bethlehem. The Muslim conquests had reached from Spain into France being turned at the battle of Tours. The invasions in Eastern Europe reached Vienna twice where the Muslims were turned back and the Ottomans returned eventually retreating back into what is today Turkey. World War I brought an end to the Ottoman Empire and in a number of first ever treaties the lands were turned over to rule other than that of the conquerors with most returned to what were believed to be the indigenous peoples. The most striking was the reestablishment of the Jewish State in its ancient homelands. These new nations were to be guided by Mandates assigned to the European allied victors of World War I.

 

Also redrawn were the borders of Eastern Europe with Germany and the Austria-Hungarian Empire being broken into new nations and borders adjusted with the allies and their defeated ally Poland gaining area at the cost of Germany and the Austria-Hungarian Empire. The Arab claims that the Europeans after World War I crippled and altered the Arab world while leaving Europe unchanged is not a valid claim and the reason the Arab world appeared to be more altered was the area of the Ottoman Empire compared to the Austria-Hungarian and German lands combined. The alterations in both lands were relatively equal in their depth and altering of influences. In Europe they set the ground for the remilitarization of Germany and World War II. The problems in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) was caused largely because each of the nations drawn on the map placed several tribes within the same borders and even cut some groups such that their peoples were spread amongst several nations. Probably the biggest losers from these borders were the Kurdish People who, despite being promised their own lands of Kurdistan, they were cheated and their tribes spread between Iran, Turkey, Iraq and the former (and potentially future) Syria. This has caused great amounts of friction especially with Turkey and Iraq where the Kurds were often targeted by their own governments. The Kurds in Syria have been facing an extermination assault by Turkey on top of fighting the Islamic State as well as other independent units and the Syrian government and allies. When reading about the Kurds it often appears that like Israel these people are also fighting the entire world with the main difference is at least the United Nations ignored the Kurds.

 

According to the Arab history of the world there was nothing before Islam. There were no great empires of Persia, Greece, Rome, Babylon and so forth. All these lands came into history upon their conquest by the Arabs and Islam. All the former and undeniable peoples from the bible were all Muslims. This may appear to be an anachronistic view of the world but the way this is established is that Allah founded the universe and gave Adam the perfect faith, Islam and when Abraham was to sacrifice his son, that son was Ishmael and there is little if any mention of Isaak. Abraham was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim and the Torah he wrote was really the first writing of something resembling the Quran but the Jews altered the writings given them by Moses corrupting it and the Christians took that and corrupted it further all to such an extent that Allah had to provide the original all over again to Muhammad. Thus Islam is the only true religion and thus has been promised to be given the entirety of Earth to rule as the only ones who have truth. This is the reality under which the Arab Muslims perceive the world and insist this is the truth and their truth must be the only truth. Anybody who refuses to accept their truth is a heretic and under Islam such a blasphemer needs to be silenced by all and any means necessary. All of this comes to a head over Israel and the focus of Arab war with the developed world and the Western world and culture. Islam had made a number of offences with their first the most successful and is now at the leading edge of their third surge (see map below). This latest offensive is using numerous efforts including warfare, terrorism, infiltration (refugees) and using democracy against itself and the equality and protections of religion to spread political Islam. Until Western nations realize that Islam is a religious-political system where the political Islam supremacy is hidden within a religion where it retreats whenever challenged demanding their religion be respected and pressing those who propose to tell the truth are then attacked as Islamophobic and thus ridiculed as anti-religious or bigoted haters. Thusfar their methods have been working exactly as they planned and will continue until either the Western World succumbs or wakes up and treats Islam as a political supremacist totalitarian system threatening the developed world.

Concerning Israel, the Arabs have directed their main efforts on the heart of Israel realizing that Israel is the tip of the defense of Western World civilization. To target Israel they are aiming for the heart of Israel which is Jerusalem and targeting the beating heart of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and Old City all of which is all encompassed in Eastern Jerusalem and thus beyond the Green Line. But what is this Green Line and why is it so important? The Green Line is the line between the IDF and the Arab forces on the Jordanian front at noon of the final day of hostilities. This was an Armistice Line and the Arab League at that time insisted that the Green Line was only to be the demarcation of the end of fighting and never, ever, ever to be considered as a border nor was it to be even used to form or delineate in negotiations a border and Israel was never to have an eastern border. The reasoning was that as long as Israel was denied any of its borders it would not be a real nation and thus the Arab world could maintain that Israel was not a nation and did not exist and was really just part of southern Syria. The Arabs reject the Mandates as having been legal and claim that the Europeans were the longest and most vile colonialists in all of MENA. What they are ignoring is the fifteen-hundred-years of Arab colonialism which continues to this day. The Europeans began any colonialist possession of the areas of MENA during and after World War I in 1914 through 1917 and then took responsibility for nation building as these areas were under Arab and then Ottoman dictatorial rule since the latest around the year 700 up through 1914, 1200 years, and have returned to Arab control as these nations were released from European influences (see map below). Judging from the longest colonial possession by Europeans of MENA lands hangs around half a century with most far less. The biggest lie about European colonies in the MENA lands is that Israel is a European colony, the big lie.

 

Dates that the MENA nations received their independence after colonial rule many since the times of the Persians or even earlier

Dates that the MENA nations received their independence after colonial rule many since the times of the Persians or even earlier

 

The truth is there is no evidence from the population statistics of Israel by which one can prove it to be a European colony. Approximately forty percent of the Israeli population comes from the MENA nations that forced the vast majority of their Jewish population from within their borders, some with the belief that they could drown Israel with these destitute refugees who were denied their wealth as their valuables and monies were confiscated before they were allowed to depart. Often they were limited to one or two suitcases per person and these suitcases were all inspected for anything of value or desirability. Over half of Israeli population is constituted from non-Europeans within other than MENA Jews there are the Menashe from India, the Ethiopian Jews and many others. Lastly, of the non-Mena populations the largest single population is from the former Soviet Union. The claims are that Israel is made up of Jews from the Concentration Camp survivors that the Nazis did not murder and that they are destined to complete the work of the Nazis.

 

Let us go to the reality for a moment as we have been reporting so much of the strange and untrue, well, a lot of untrue mixed with sufficient truth to make everything have just that taste of the possible. Much of the rest is accepted largely on the mistrust of Jews or outright anti-Semitism. Before the year 600 the Arabs resided almost exclusively along the coasts of the Arabic Peninsula. They were idolaters and Islam was not yet an idea emerging from Muhammad’s experiences in that cave. Meanwhile, the Jews had survived their experiences in Egypt and were led by Moses into the desert where for forty years they prepared the population for becoming a nation and to conquer the Promised Land. Moses led them to the Jordan River and from there Joshua led the assault into the Promised Land. First Jericho then Ai and onto the remainder of the lands (see map below). The conquest took longer than a single lifetime and culminated with King David and King Solomon centered around the year 1000 BCE (see map below). By the time of King David and King Solomon all the Canaanite tribes were defeated and the Israelite enemies now were Greeks, Egyptian and Babylonians. The Israelites were driven from their lands twice, the first by the Babylonians and the second by Alexander the Great and his Greek armies. From that second conquest there came the Roman rule which executed what they considered to be the deathblow being delivered to the Israelites, who by this time were merely called Judeans which eventually became Jew. The punishment the Romans delivered was the scattering of the Judeans (Jews) throughout their Empire and even banishing many Jews to beyond their frontiers expecting they could never survive. This resulted, over time, with Jews living virtually throughout the world. Meanwhile, many Jews also sought home along Northern Africa to escape Roman brutalities resulting in a sizeable Jewish population being spread throughout North Africa when the Arab forces burst from the Arabian Peninsula and conquered this area. Some Jews even followed this migration into Spain where they met Jews who had been dispersed and reached Spain from the Roman frontiers.

The history of the Western Jews and the history of the Jews under Islam had many similarities where the forms of government and names of the rulers were different but the results identical. In Europe the Jews were chased from nation to nation and even from kingships to kingship and baron’s lands to baron’s lands and even from town to town. The plight of the Jew was well told in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice where the Jew is a moneylender whose client has refused payment. For the rest, read the play or go to the theater for the full story, dinner at 11:00 PM. Jews were permitted a select few professions and were forbidden to own land, what was considered the ultimate sign of wealth. This placed Jews as the initial provisionors and retailers. This would grant the Jews great advantage in a much later time while others were just first reaching the cities where the Jews were already established. The Islamic world was ruled locally in many ways similarly to the European world with the main difference being that the entirety was under the rule of one person who seldom ever visited much of their lands. This left the rule and tax collecting from which they often took a great cut for themselves. Often these local leaders would enact Islam only laws pressing the Christians and Jews to flee with little or nothing more than they could hastily gather and carry. Sometimes these restrictions and persecution were targeting Jews alone; it is so much fun to be the chosen people. The areas under each Sheikh, Emir and other titles whose moniker would change depending on the Caliph and the ruling Islamic branch would each make decisions which affected the non-Muslims, especially the Jews, residing within their territories. The similarities between the lives of Jews under Islam and Christianity were far greater than were the differences as far as the average Jew and their security, or lack thereof. The problem for the Jews is we were seldom permitted weapons when we most would need them and never had the numbers of population to provide ourselves with much hope of protecting ourselves beyond taking flight when trouble brewed. With Israel things are different as now we have equal footing though our numbers are limited, our determination is not and we will not be driven from our lands ever again, and that is our intent.

It is All a Debate of Dates (Part I)

 

The entirety of the debate over Judea and Samaria depends on the date which one believes the entire argument began. Was that date October 6–25, 1973; June 5 – 10, 1967; May 15, 1948; November 29, 1947; November 20, 1922; August 10, 1920; April 25, 1920; November 2, 1917; or is the only date that really matters, 1000 BCE when David and the united Tribes of Israel declared their state and set Jerusalem as their eternal Capital City. These dates refer to things as diverse as the length of the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War, United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) division of what had been promised to be indivisible, the birth day of the State of Israel, the various treaties from World War I many of which were instrumental in the formation of the Mandate System and going back to the capture of the city of Jerusalem and the formation of the first Israelite nation with Jerusalem as its capital city. This capture was the last of the Jebusites Kings and he with all that remained of his people were within the walls of Jerusalem on that fateful day when David and a small squad of selected fighters followed the water channel from the Gihon Spring into the city where they were able to eliminate guards and open the gates allowing the Israelite forces to enter the city before dawn and work their way throughout the city killing everyone as well as slaughtering the cattle and every living thing cleansing the city of Jebusites and their stone idols were smashed and destroyed ending their existence as had been commanded be done.

 

If the Palestinian claims that they were the builders of Jerusalem and had lived in the city since nine-thousand years ago, or even the lesser ridiculous claim of five-thousand years ago, they would have been slaughtered to the last man, woman and child and thus could not exist today which makes those claims a ludicrous set of lies. Yes, such eradication is horrific by modern rules and morals but three-thousand years ago life and the rules, there were no rules other than when you conquered a peoples you allowed a few of the most attractive young women and the children under five or six years of age to live if there were any survivors. In the case of the Jebusites in Jerusalem, they chose war and got the result promised when they were first given a choice. When Joshua first entered the lands of the Canaanite kingdoms, a declaration was made and sent to all the separate kings telling them they had three choices, they could remain and rule their people under the Israelite kingship which would require their men be circumcised, they follow the Seven Laws of the Noahic Code, and pay their expected taxes to support the tribe whose lands they dwelled within; they could take their belongings and leave beyond the claimed borders for the Israelite lands and they would not be harassed or chased and allowed to leave with the Israelites’ blessings; or they could choose war and face complete and total annihilation which included every last person, every last of their cattle, all their gods and temples and any vestiges of their civilization’s existence and thus their erasure from future history. The Jebusites chose war and received exactly what was promised. This act removes any former claims to Jerusalem as those inhabitants and their civilization were eradicated. Any claims to have preceded King David in Jerusalem are ludicrous due to the cleansing which was carried out in Jerusalem and the surrounding lands after they were conquered by the Israelites. Those of you so outraged at such should recall that many centuries later this was the common procedure of the Mongols against cities which dealt poorly with them and even some that did not, the practice of Islamic warriors during the initial expansive years of Islam from 622 through 750 CE, and has been the practice of the Islamic State when they take an area and cleanse it of all things not Islamic including the structures which predated Islam in some cases by thousands of years such as the ruins from Assyria, Persia, Babylonia and one can only have nightmares of what they would do to Jerusalem.

 

The Arabs, of which the Palestinians are but their central cog in their machinations designed to destroy Israel making the entire area a new Arab state completely Judenrein, are using the annihilation method which they first shared with their allies during World War II when the Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed, Amin al-Husseini, attended the Wannsee Conference in January 1942, and advised the officers in attendance during breaks and in select committee groupings leading to their final decision. The idea that the Arab hatred for the Jews was inherited from Central and Western Europeans from World War II is ludicrous and can be dispelled by a simple reading of the Quran where the hatred and annihilation of the Jews is spelled out explicitly a full twelve-hundred years earlier, if not more. The invention in 1964 that there are a Palestinian people was orchestrated by the KGB and Arab League as a method of pressuring and attacking Israelis through terrorist methods with the intended result that they would simply pack their bags and run away as was the reality for the Jews both in Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa plus anywhere else in the world where they at some point were welcome and later threatened, targeted for extermination or simply exiled by force. The miscalculation made by the Arabs is obvious to anybody willing to take a second glance and do even the most cursory amount of research. Israel is not some foreign land ruled by non-Jews where we Jews were but a small segment of the population often with restricted rights and usually were forbidden to own weapons thus when the majority rose up, Jews ran as would have any other minority. Israel is our home and we are going nowhere and we rule ourselves and have arms and thus this is very different, as the Arabs need to realize before they bring upon themselves ruin and destruction.

 

The Arabs have their favorite dates and pretend that no others exist. Their first is November 29, 1947 when the United Nations General Assembly issued a recommendation under UNGA Res. 181 which divided the lands which were promised under the British Mandate, the Churchill White Papers and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter as indivisible from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as reserved exclusively for the Jewish State. But why should history or the actual charter of the organization in which the delegates serve or all else in history matter when you have a majority of Arab States, Dictators and various anti-Semitic nations and can simply ignore the rules and leave the Jews with half their promised lands in which two-thirds are desert (see map below). Despite the world cheating the Jews of their rightful lands a second time, the formation of Jordan out of seventy-eight-percent of the British Mandate was the first theft of Jewish lands as even if the land was to be divided, half for each would have been closer to fair, but why be fair when dealing the Jews out of as much as can be justified. The United Nations decided taking half of twenty-two-percent, and the best half at that, was the least they could do to satisfy the Arab potentates and their allied abettors who demanded their pound of flesh. Unbelievably, the Zionist Congress which represented the Jewish interests actually agreed as they were willing to accept anything in order to make their homeland as the future of the Jewish People depended upon those lands producing them a nation, any lands to make a place where a Jew could be a Jew and we would be allowed to finally once again defend ourselves. The Arabs refused this compromise demanding all of the lands as since they had once belonged to Arab conquerors, it must forever remain Arab land. Further, a nation for the Jews within the Arab lands was an insult to Allah and the Jew must never be permitted to live as an equal and must forever be subdued if not vanquished. This is now the division of the land they claim is rightfully to be reinstated after they failed to destroy Israel. The problem is as soon as the Arab League refused to allow any Jewish State and refused the compromise, as such permitted a Jewish State with real borders, the entire UNGA Resolution 181 was voided and thus impossible to resurrect, especially after the 1948-9 Arab War of Annihilation which is often misnamed the Israel War of Independence. Israel already had independence as of midnight May 14-15 1948, when the new day emerged with the borders from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as depicted in the British Mandate and Churchill White Papers defined with maps (see map below). That May morning half a dozen Arab armies along with numerous militias and independent forces attacked Israel from without and from numerous Arab villages within the nascent State of Israel.

The next date the Arabs love to use is that May 15, 1948 through mid-1949 and the end of the Arab War of Annihilation (Israeli War of Independence) where they point to the numerous Arab villages which were ejected from the lands by the Jewish forces which slowly came together to form the initial Israeli Defense Force (IDF). Most of these villages were driven from the lands due to military considerations as they had fired on Israelis, often on civilians but also on military forces from behind their lines. The Israelis could not fight an effective war with Arab villages ambushing supply lines or attacking the IDF positions from their rear. This led to any village where shots were fired upon Israelis or IDF forces as well as any providing logistical supply lines were forced out sent to join those fighting from without invading to destroy Israel and eradicate the Jews within. Forcing these people beyond the front lines was more civil than other alternatives such as shelling and assaulting with intents to destroy everything within such villages as that would have entailed the deaths of potentially innocents. Evicting the people was preferred over other military considerations as the fact that these villages permitted their use for assaults on Israeli forces and people was sufficient proof they had decided they belonged on the Arab side of the conflict. These were the people which the Arabs decided to place in camps and force them to retain refugee status and even made rules that refugee status not only applied to those placed into the camps but to their descendants into perpetuity which is why half to six-hundred-thousand Arab refugees now presumably number approaching eight-million refugees. Even should a refugee marry somebody who is not a refugee, their children and their children into perpetuity are still refugees. There is a claim that between 150,000 and 250,000 Palestinian refugees residing in Los Angeles with the initial wave reported to have arrived in 1908 (yet they are counted as refugees who lost homes to Jews in 1948) and a second wave presumably in 1948. These Arabs despite living comfortably in the United States, and others residing in all corners of the globe, are considered to be refugees suffering degradations due to their losses to the Jews and will continue through their prodigy through the rest of history or until the world demands an end to this farcical operation designed with one purpose, the destruction of Israel and the eradication of its Jews.

President Obama’s Surprise No Surprise at All

 

Be honest, was President Obama pressing for a Security Council vote condemning Israel activity beyond the Green Line really all that much of a surprise? Did you still doubt the vindictiveness and hatred of Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu? Did you really believe he would leave office without setting in stone his idea of a fair border for the Palestinian State? None of this was a surprise as the only thing which was left unknown was how close would he allow it to be before he left office? The pressing matter was the upcoming French conference as President Obama needed this to be his idea and not some reaction to the French initiative. That is what placed any deal of haste behind his actions. As for what good this did, that is what we can discuss here in this article rather than react and try to belittle the pettiness of the departing American President. That discussion we will leave for those stuck in condemnation of the past and probably holding great amounts of trepidation of the future as Trump was not their Presidential choice.

 

Israel must use this as their last and final opportunity to learn the reality of the world. Israel is hated by the world powers. The peoples of the Earth may not all hate Israel but it is far too probable that much if not the vast majority of the peoples of the world hate Israel. The people of Israel need to grasp the full implications of the findings that close to two-thirds of those who admitted to hating Jews had never met a single Jew. This reveals that hating Israel is a visceral reality resultant of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism both of which have no necessary requirement for having met a Jew or a Zionist respectively. It is also necessary for Israelis, especially Israeli Jewish Zionists to realize that some Zionists are not Jewish but do believe that Hashem did indeed promise the people known today as the Jews the lands of Israel. But the numbers of our friends are also mostly the ‘silent majority’ whose lives are filled with family, work and day-to-day living and not of the sort to be available for demonstrations at a moment’s notice. Thus the support for Israel is more relaxed and less visible than the opposition. But the governments are very visible in their deferential positions for supporting Israel’s enemies. The unanimous vote, the abstention by the United States is equivalent to a yes vote, is telling especially when one considers the list of nations currently in the Security Council; China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States, Angola, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal, Spain, Ukraine, Uruguay, and Venezuela. The notables are Japan, New Zealand and Spain as all are neither Islamic nations nor subjects of recent Islamic terrorist attacks nor do they have histories of anti-Israel actions. What they do share is leftist governments which are willing to blow with the wind and are incapable of resisting the Arab funded anti-Israel tsunami which has been greatly aided by Western government’s craven refusal to stand for freedom and human rights when it comes to the contemptable records of the Arab world. Instead they prefer to pretend that Israel is the center of all that is wrong with the world and if only Israel can be subsumed and destroyed then all will be right with the world. Such acts will all lead to but one conclusion, the directing of the full forces of Islamic terrorism and subversion against the entirety of the West and then their turning to Asia, South America and the remainder of Africa in their Grand Jihad to fulfill their perceived promise from Allah that they will be the sole force on all of the Earth. If this is the desired result the world desires, could they please simply enact Sharia and leave Israel to be Israel alone if necessary.

 

Israel need recognize that even should we remove every last community now under attack and redivided, Hashem forbid, Jerusalem, surrendering all rights to visit virtually all of our holiest sites, it will not satiate the Islamic beast but further its hunger for the remainder of Israel. They have set the terms even if the West and United Nations act blindly disregarding their demands for Tel Aviv, Haifa, Netanya, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Eilat, Beersheba, Dimona, and the west of Jerusalem and every inch between the River and the Sea. The anti-Israel NGOs on the college campuses across Europe, Canada, the United States and the world all know the chant and proudly declare, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free.” Where is the differentiation between the “settlements” and the remainder of Israel, the Western invention of the good Israel which will be permitted to live in peace? Nowhere, because there is no such entity and the Arab world knows this. The Palestinian Authority, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah and the Arab League with the world it represents all claim the same thing, not just the end to Israel but a war against every Jew everywhere they can be found. They follow their holy writings from al-Bukhari 3593 Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Hadith 791, where it plainly states,

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!’ ”
حَدَّثَنَا الْحَكَمُ بْنُ نَافِعٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي سَالِمُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، أَنَّ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عُمَرَ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ تُقَاتِلُكُمُ الْيَهُودُ فَتُسَلَّطُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ الْحَجَرُ يَا مُسْلِمُ، هَذَا يَهُودِيٌّ وَرَائِي فَاقْتُلْهُ ‏”‏‏.‏

Another instance using a variant of this quote appeared in publications of this Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad in Egyptian publications in the 1930s and 1940s:

The resurrection of the dead will not come until the Muslims will war with the Jews and the Muslims will kill them; … the trees and rocks will say, “O Muslim, O Abdullah, here is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

For more on the writings of the Quran we wrote a short piece as an introduction titled Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and friends of BTC have added numerous informative and accurate links to a varied assortment of commentaries and actual copies of the Quran from both its normal appearance to chronological listings of the writings of Muhammad’s scribe, Muhammad could neither read not write.

 

There are numerous other Hadiths which denounce both Jews and Christians and many were adapted for use against Buddhists and Hindus during the Islamic Jihad in India. The Quran is a wonderful book written in such a manner as to confound any who study seeking useable arguments leading to a conclusion. As the Quran is assembled shortest verse to the longest verse one must first rearrange the writings putting them in chronological order as they were revealed. The arrangement was made in order to allow students to start from their youth learning, memorizing the shortest verses and as they matured to commit to memory the longest verses. They were also taught not to be concerned that the verses they memorized made little sense in the order they are taught as these things are of no consequence. The true meaning of the Quran will be granted only to the learned ones, the Imams, and the followers are to take the words of their Imam as the true and pertinent meaning of the Quran. This allows for a community religious leader to mold the word which their followers are able to teach to others. In this was the writings of the words spoken by Muhammad in Mecca, the earliest verses, to their followers thus present an Islam of love, peace, coexistence and multi-culturalism much like Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and other major religions. Then, as their numbers in a society reach a tipping point the Imam will start to alter their teaching and inject the teachings from the Medina period where Islam was turned into a conquering force which spread across the Middle East and Northern Africa spreading as if it were wildfire (see map below). The expansion was halted in two main battles, the battle of Tours on October 10, 732, where the French forces were led by Charles ‘the Hammer’ Martel and the Sieges of Vienna in 1529 and 1683 where on September 12, 1683, the King of Poland John III Sobieski led the forces relieving the city.

Back to what Israel need learn, and with her the world need learn, from the recent vote of the Security Council. It is necessary to remember the unending attacks against Israeli citizens from terrorists before June of 1967 and the Six Day War. These terror attacks had nothing to do with the ‘settlements’ as there was no occupied territory. The PLO was founded on May 28, 1964, more than three years before there were any occupied territories. The PLO Charter demanded the liberation of Palestine which was defined then as all of Israel within the Green Line and all other borders. They made no claim to the ‘West Bank’, which are more accurately called Judea and Samaria, as the area was then actual occupied territory with Jordan as the occupying power. Jordan was granted the areas of Judea and Samaria after Jordanian, Saudi Arabian, Iraqi and Arab League forces wrested the lands from Israel as part of what was envisioned to be a genocidal conquest of the nascent Israel launched on May 15, 1948, the first day of Israel’s existence as a nation. These forces were joined by Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Pakistan, Arab Liberation Army, Muslim Brotherhood, Holy War Army and various other irregular forces. During this conflict the Egyptians were granted the Gaza Strip which was the other piece of land lost by Israel in what many refer to as the Israel War of Independence, which is strange as Israeli independence was established on May 15, 1948 and not during a period in 1949 as several different armistices were signed establishing Armistice Lines with the most recognized being the Blue Line, border between Israel and Lebanon, and the Green Line which is the border established then with Jordan. The Arab League insisted that these Armistice Lines never be construed or utilized to establish a border with Israel for as long as Israel has no defined borders the Arab nations can continue to claim it does not exist and a state of war continues. Israel signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan establishing borders of the Negev-Sinai border with Egypt and the Jordan River as the Israeli-Jordanian border. There was never an entity called Palestine, only a region defined originally by the Romans which included what today makes up Israel, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, a region the Arab League insisted was Greater Syria even through the Mandate period. All of this the United Nations had nothing to say as the Arab armies stole Israeli lands after refusing a plan for two states because the Arab world refused to permit absolutely any Jewish nation and had their own planned invasion in the ready. Nothing was going to prevent the genocidal slaughter of the interloping Jews who insulted all Islam by returning to their ancestral homelands. The reality is the Arab world refuses to permit any land which once has been trodden by an Arab to be ruled by anything other than an Arab. This is behind their claims to all of Europe and the United States, Canada and anywhere in the world where any Arab has resided within any national borders, as that fact makes the entirety of those lands reserved to be part of an Arab Caliphate. Israel has to understand that peace is not possible, only victory or defeat and defeat will be complete and total with not a Jew left alive. Israeli victory would look like (the map below) the borders negotiated with Egypt and Jordan and the Armistice line with Lebanon and the Golan Heights demarcation line with what once was Syria and is now something completely different.

 

Definitive Map of Israel

 

Israel exists today for one reason and only one reason, force of arms. Despite facing overwhelming numbers in each of the wars with her Arab neighbors beginning in 1948 and on through the 1967 Six Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel through determination and having little choice but to win or face complete annihilation, has persisted through miracle after miracle, Baruch Hashem. The numbers would determine only one conceivable result in each of these conflicts, the annihilation of the Jews of Israel yet Israel survived. Today we face an even greater threat, a world seemingly united against Israel. Understand what the United Nations Security Council voted to enforce. They determined that all former promises of defensible borders and compromises et al are now cancelled and Israel must return to what Abba Eban referred to as the Auschwitz Borders as they all but guaranteed an Israel which cannot be prevented from constant and overwhelming attack leaving Israel facing assaults from the high ground of the Judean Hills overlooking the heart of Israel where three quarters of Israelis reside and eighty percent of her industrial infrastructure exists. By the Security Council all but demanding and delineating that the Green Line must be the resulting border for any Arab state cut out of lands promised by the world repeatedly through the San Remo conference, Treaty of Sèvres, 1924 Anglo-American Convention, League of Nations Mandate unanimous vote, United Nations Charter Article 80 and various other documents, treaties and agreements, any possibility of reaching a peace agreement has been made impossible. The reality was no peace was ever possible before due to Arab intransigence as stated precisely and in easy to understand terminology in the Khartoum Conference with the stated purpose of The Three No’s; No Peace with Israel, No Negotiations with Israel, No Recognition of Israel. The Palestinian Authority has set their demands just as stridently with their demand for the “Right of Return” for over five million Arabs into Israel with none to be absorbed by their presumed Arab state with the result of voting Israel out of existence with the next election or their other demand to be given their rightful 22% of the lands. The lands to which they refer are the lands of the British Mandate of which 78% of the lands were used for the Arab Palestinian state of Jordan (the real Arab Palestinian state with any other being another such state, the second Palestinian Arab state and with return of refugees to Israel soon a third Palestinian Arab state) leaving by promise of the Churchill White Papers the remaining 22% for the Jewish State, that is the 22% Abbas demands, not Judea and Gaza as pretended by Western politicians who know their lies are but a screen for their consciences as they agree to dissolve Israel if they can have an empty promise that the terrorism will end and there will be no further assault by Islam. Even if they were to receive said promise, it would be a hudna, a ten year agreement which can be broken at any point if the powers of Islam believe they have the tactical advantage. The hudna is based on the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah between Muhammad and the Quraysh tribe, a Jewish tribe in the Arabian Peninsula during Muhammad’s times, which was to last ten years but Muhammad broke it well before the ten years when he was strong enough to eradicate these Jews enslaving the young women and male children young enough to be retrained as Islamic fighters while all the men were slaughtered with those surviving the battle beheaded in a mass fury. Israel desires no hudna as history is a good teacher if one bothers to remember events from the past, especially defining events as the precedent defining hudna.

 

The Security Council vote leaves Israel little if any real choice. The lands of Judea and Samaria must now remain in their totality as part of Israel as this decision makes anything less no longer possible. With the world voting and filling the chamber with diplomats from who knows how many other nations erupting in applause and approval of this calamity delineating the Green Line as if it were set in stone as the gold standard of solutions for granting the Arabs their twenty-second state, leaving Israel staring at an unacceptable vulnerability which cannot be permitted. This also set a precedent for the Arab Palestinian that instead of negotiations with Israel they can simply wait for the right opportunity and petition the United Nations and continue to petition the United Nations until they finally get exactly their latest demands granted by the Security Council setting the world behind their demands. The route has been established. Petition the General Assembly constantly year in and year out as often as feasible knowing that a favorable vote is guaranteed. Just continue this with once a year threatening to take their latest set of demands to the Security Council and should any permanent member nation threaten a veto then take it to the General Assembly for the umpteenth time. When finally the stars and galaxies are in the wrong alignment and there is a guarantee of no veto, even better if the usual vetoing nation is pushing the motion, then present to the Security Council and allow the world to press your evil as then it becomes acceptable and proper. Is there such a thing as the world being wrong and Israel right? In a word, yes, and we are now living in such times.

 

President elect Donald Trump has stated things are about to change. Sorry President elect Trump, nothing can alter or change this because even should you present the Security Council with a motion overturning this decision you can bet one of the following, Russia, China, France or Britain will utilize their veto even should you manage to force a majority of the Security Council members to approve your motion. Israel will never be received as proper or deserving of respect or even the granting of promises given because Israel is the one nation where promises given are lies and threats are the reality of things to come. Yes, while you are President of the United States, during that time Israel will have the protection of the American veto. The problem is you can be President no longer than eight years if, and hopefully when as far as Israel is concerned, you are reelected but then what? Pence would potentially, at best, grant another eight years of protection for Israel but then what? The winds of change are and have been blowing for a very long time in the United States. I have personally observed them and predicted the very events of this past week from back in the late 1980s that the days were coming when the United States would turn against Israel. I meant the politics and the people and the people are turning against Israel just as they are rejecting religion and Judeo-Christian ethics. Your election may give such voice to a dying force which has had its extinction in the cards for many years now and there is little that can alter the degradations which are on the wind. Society in the West is coming apart and much of this collapse is written in the ethics of me and me first and last and only. This philosophy is evident in the depopulation of Europe to the point that Europe is committing suicide in the hopes of rejuvenating its workforce to be able to support its aging populations.

 

America is fortunate, though you do not realize the reality. The United States has infiltrators who at least share your Judeo-Christian ethos and backgrounds. They will continue the work ethic largely and many desire to come to America for opportunity. When I lived in the United States one of two hardest working people, families I knew were immigrants, one legal under Reagan’s amnesty and the other legal outright, the first walked to Pennsylvania from Guatemala to work with a relative and the later from the Philippines. They both were proud and dedicated, hardworking Americans with love for the nation which gave them a life they could only have dreamed about, and had in both cases, in their native countries. Both took chances, the Guatemalan walking and hitchhiking with wife and baby, entire family in tow; the other came and worked six years before being able to bring his wife and three children to America. One I knew in Pittsburgh, the other in Philadelphia, must be something about Pennsylvania, or America. These are the kind of people who will help make America great again, you can only provide them an easier road, but they will do it with you or despite the regulators.

 

Israel is a similar story to the United States, only far older. Israel is the promise to a people who never forgot their dream of returning home when the time was determined. What made it more difficult was that they were not to be the determining factor; the world had to make it so. This was not due to the lack of desire on the part of Jews but because we were instructed to await a sign from Hashem. That sign took a very long time but the time was foretold in prophesy. We knew of the exiles from our lands, the Promised Lands given in a promise from Hashem to Abraham and again reiterated to Isaac and again to Jacob. A promise retold to Moses and to the multitude at Mount Sinai. You will probably never read this writing, but if you do and we meet, remind me to tell you of our story behind the giving of the law and the first two unsuccessful attempts before Moses went up the mountain. We knew the exile in Egypt would be followed by another shorter in length in Babylon and one interminably long exile lasting seemingly eons, which just happens to translate to around a thousand years give or take a few centuries. This final exile lasted almost two of those eons and we will not endure another. Imagine a world without there having been the Chosen People, without the Ten Commandments, without the Bible (Old Testament and thus New Testament as well) and imagine a world where the name of Hashem was never revealed and we still worshipped stone edifices and lived as peoples without an immortal soul. That is the world without Israel if she should fall and that is why it must not be. Israel is the past and the future and it always was and will be ever since Abraham settled amongst the Canaanites and Moses gave us Torah and we gave the world civilization. That civilization lies panting on the floor in need of emergency treatment and perhaps you are to administer that aid. Israel is right there beside her friends to help, but your son-in-law has probably already told you that. You cannot undo the damage done by President Obama but that is how it is supposed to be. What President Obama did, he did to send Israel a message, though not the message he believed he was sending. We received that message, many of us. He told us that Judea and Samaria are a vital part of Israel which she will not survive without and that we need cut the cancer from amongst us and return to Torah. We must keep the promises which we were determined to keep and this includes Judea and Samaria which are a central heartland of ancient Israel and must be a vital part of modern Israel. Hashem desires this and we need to realize the truth and President Obama just presented the only message we might understand. Too bad the world will need to learn the truth in a more difficult lesson which is already on its way.
