No Time for Peace Talks and a Time for Quiet Actions

 

Yes, we know the song goes, “A time for peace and a time for war,” but we prefer to leave war completely out of this discussion, well, if that is at all possible. Right now Israel is in a position with which it has little experience. The world is actually taking a break from everything is blamed on Israel and instead is looking at President Trump, Republicans, Democrats, Congress, North Korea, South Korea and even Europe amongst other places not Israel. When the eyes of the crazed world look to the Middle East, they look at Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and other locations not Israel. When you are being left alone, try and remain left alone. That should be the Israeli motto written on every piece of official documents. But the Jewish Home Party leader Naftali Bennett is proposing gradually ending Israeli military rule in Area C, applying Israeli law. This part is the good news which can be accomplished without any intervention, acclamation, consternation or other interference from the remainder of the universe. But Mr. Bennett just had to go and add offering full Israeli citizenship to the 80,000 Palestinians living there. We need to ask for just a little amount of clarification. Does that 80,000 Palestinians include everyone or would there be some restrictions whereby those affiliated with terrorism would be excluded? The information we have received is limited at this time, as the official declaration providing all the details was not available. As this will only apply to area C, we definitely support placing the region under Israeli Civil Law and removing it from Military Law and Governance and removing Central Command from their having total control over the entire region.

 

This would be the first step in normalizing Area C which under the Oslo Accords was to be placed under complete civic and security control of the Israelis while Area A was placed under complete Palestinian Authority control and Area B was under Palestinian civil control and joint security control. Since the collapse of the Oslo Accords, as they passed their five-year target for final agreement, Area A also came under joint security control at the behest of Mahmoud Abbas as he required IDF security assistance to prevent Hamas or others from taking control by coup and making his life expectancy much shorter. The Oslo Accords were arranged by a group of Israeli and American leftists behind the scenes and beyond the knowledge of the Israeli Knesset and was proposed as an agreement which was already approved and accepted by the United States. This turned out to be an exaggeration used to force the agreement upon an Israeli government which probably would never have accepted going forward with the idea had they been included from the start. Since then, the Palestinian and Arab propaganda has altered the perception of the original agreement such that much of the world believes that there used to be an Arab nation of Palestine rather than the truth that Jordan illegally held lands which under treaty and international laws belonged to Israel. The areas were called Judea and Samaria but Jordan renamed it the West Bank as Judea and Samaria has too much of a Jewish twinge in their names and Jordan claimed to have annexed the area. During the 1967 Six Day War, Israel liberated Judea and Samaria only to find that Jordan and other Arab nations had permitted thousands upon thousands of Arab refugees from 1948 as well as Jordanian citizens, some voluntarily and some by force breaking international law, to resettle in the Jordan occupied areas. There was never any nation of Palestine and the Palestinian Arabs are actually simply Arabs from the surrounding areas including Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt and further even to include Turkey. When making peace with Jordan, Israel even offered to return these lands but Jordan refused to reclaim the illegally held lands leaving them to their rightful owner under international law. The real reason was Jordan also refused to allow any of its citizens to return to Jordan claiming instead that they were now Israelis. The story changed once the world involved Israel in the Oslo Accords and the Palestinian State became all the rage ever since. It became such a great thing for the United Nations that they decided to change the celebration on November 29, 1947, from the anniversary of the day that Israel was initiated at the United Nations to Palestinian Solidarity Day where the world celebrates establishing Palestine in place of Israel and allowing the slaughter of over six million Jews. They never state it as such, but that is exactly what the entire celebration is all about, replacing Israel with another Arab state, this one called Palestine which would be the first nation by that name, nothing less.

 

Europe has latched onto the demand that the Israelis return to the pre-1967 War lines (they were not borders but armistice lines from 1949) despite the well-understood reality by any and all military commanders that such would be the beginning of the end of Israel. The combination of befriending the Arabs, preferring not to risk losing their precious oil shipments, and institutional anti-Semitism of Europe combined to bring around the attitude that Israel and her population is an expendable casualty if that is what needs to be to keep their status quo. The third world has accepted the Arab propaganda that Israel is nothing but an American pawn colonial outpost injected into Arab lands which have belonged to the Arabs since the start of time. Slowly, one disaster at a time, some of these nations after receiving vital and immediate Israeli emergency aid after natural disasters are learning a different truth. Still, Israel should operate quietly and discreetly going the extra yard to retain quiet whenever Israel is not in the sites of the world demanding concession after concession. Being ignored is a good thing as far as most Israelis are concerned and we like not being under the microscope readying us for dissection. This is the reason it would be wiser for this idea of Naftali Bennett’s to be quietly discussed within the cabinet and once its passage is assured, brought before the Knesset for basically quick ratification in quick and quiet votes and then presented as an accomplished fact. Anything placed on the floor to be debated will be debated in the halls of the United Nations, European Union, European parliaments from Britain to Finland to Italy and everywhere in between always claiming that Israel is oppressing and stealing lands when she is simply taking what always has been hers. But the world will never accept Israel having peace and secured borders as designated under the Mandate System, San Remo Conference, Treaty of Sèvres and international law which are from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea (see map below). That is what should be and just as there were migrations between Pakistan and India, Germany and France, Germany and Poland, there should be some responsibility for the Arab nations to repatriate their brothers and sisters and leave Israel in peace. Should such ever come to pass and peace be established and Israel granted her borders, then the violence will end.

 

Definitive Map of Israel

 

There is a group which demands democracy for Jordan or for a dividing of Jordan into the Palestinian Arab nation it was intended to be and the eastern third of the country to be allowed to remain under the rule of the Hashemite family. Mudar Zahran is a Palestinian Arab as are all the Arabs who reside in Jordan, who believes fully in the original Mandate System which declared that all 78% of the British Mandate east of the Jordan River would be the Arab Palestinian homelands while the remaining 22% of the British Mandate west of the Jordan River was reserved for the Jewish State. Mr. Zahran desires to install an Arab Palestinian democracy in Jordan either sharing the lands with an area ruled by King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein with the Arab Palestinian State. As Secretary General of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition, Mudar Zahran, proposes building a city on a grand scale capable of housing as many as all the Palestinian Arabs from Judea and Samaria which could then be returned to Israel as was the initial Mandate System ideal plan. Any Palestinian Arab desiring to remain in Judea and Samaria would still be granted citizenship in his Palestinian Arab state as most are already carrying Jordanian passports and identification papers or their parents carry such. They are not Israeli citizens and thus are only a problem for Israel that has no solution. Mr. Zahran has a plan which deserves being that solution.

Mr. Zahran’s proposal could work for the King of Jordan as he would remain in power ruling over as much as one third of what today is Jordan with the non-Arab citizens remaining in Jordan under the King having whatever form of government desired and with less of a security problem as the Palestinian Arabs would have their own nation bordering the King’s in the remaining western two-thirds of what today is Jordan. Any Arabs desiring to remain under the King may resettle and do so. Mr. Zahran desires having the Arab Palestinians all reside in his new nation which could even be named Palestine. As soon as he has established his state, preferably peaceably, then the Oslo Accords would be negated and Palestine established east of the Jordan River. Those Arab Palestinians remaining in the areas ruled by Israel would be Palestinian citizens residing in Israel as legal alien citizens and would vote in the Arab Palestinian elections in Palestine east of the Jordan River.

 

Obviously, the main opposition to this would be King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan and he would require some form of compensation other than being freed from what amounts to a consistent threat to his rule. The remaining opposition comes from the remainder of the Arab world and Mahmoud Abbas and his Palestinian Authority (PA) kleptocracy. Abbas and the Arab world’s protestations are proof that their desires are more to cause Israel as much unrest and terrorism as possible even if it is at the expense of the Palestinian Arabs themselves. Their hatred of Israel and the Jews spills over into hatred for their own brethren, the Arab Palestinians who they are willing to sacrifice to a life of violence without rights or representation they themselves elected. Mudar Zahran wants to give the Arab Palestinians their own homeland even, or as well as, should it result in Israel having secure borders and an end to the terror threat run by Mahmoud Abbas and the remainder of the PA. Much of the world including thus far the Europeans, United Nations and the United States as well as Russia, China, the Arab League, Mahmoud Abbas and the PA all also oppose this solution either because it solves the Arab-Israel conflict at least for the Arab Palestinians, grants Israel secure and defined borders, and allows both Arabs and Jews to live side-by-side in security and peace. Funny, are not the ideals of Arabs and Jews living side-by-side in security and peace exactly the stated goals of every negotiation being held currently in bad faith? Here is somebody proposing a solution which provides exactly that stated as the goal of the entire world and because it will not lead directly to the destruction of Israel, nobody is willing to support it. Perhaps somebody should permit Mudar Zahran to meet with President Donald Trump in Washington D.C. instead of the President making another trip to the Middle East to pursue the impossible, a treaty where Israel agrees to commit suicide and the Arabs take all the land, which is the only solution which Abbas is willing to accept.

All the Leftist Choices Once Around the Globe

 

There is this leftist slant to the elections in the United States that cannot be ignored. Of course there are only leftists running for the Democrats. Like the left the world over, their main cry is listen to the dreams we weave and forget the realities of things. In Hillary’s case she believes that we should all ignore her criminal negligence with State Department and other secret documents which we are learning were easily read in Moscow and Beijing as well as anywhere else which had half a mind to read them. Then there was Benghazi and the deceitful ruse used to get Obama elected while telling the people and the next of kin whatever was required because truth does not matter, only power and self-aggrandizement matters. It is all about Me, Me, Me, with the Clintons. Then there is Bernie Sanders who is a self-proclaimed socialist which explains why the youth who have not paid attention to the taxes they pay and have no idea that when he says the rich will pay their fair share he means anybody who works for a living and that the only viable way to survive in his system is to become a ward of the government and live as they instruct you in high crime and run down tenements, but that will not happen for at least four years as he would need reelection before dropping the boom. Bernie wants us to ignore that his tether to sanity and reality is as thin as spider silk and as strong as cooked spaghetti. One slight breeze and he becomes a full blown communist, but the young never know of the problems with Russia or China and will need to live it to learn that lesson. Unfortunately, they may take all of America with them. That is the Democrat choices, a criminal who is running to remain out of Federal prison and a loonie-tune.

Like the Republican side is any better. At one end you have a HUGE fake moderate conservative who is just a bit too cuddly with the Clintons and has been a Democrat supporter, except when running for President as a Republican which he had sampled the water a number of elections back and found them cold. This time the water appears to be just right and he is screaming and waving his arms and hands, especially his little hands, all in an attempt to sound like a winner. Trump will never really be the President as should that realty come to fruition and he be elected and actually act on his half-baked ideas, the nation would implode soon thereafter. The good news is if he gets elected he will make gloriously loud arm waving speeches which will excite the excitable amongst the populace and allow the people he appoints and the Senate ratifies to run the nation, and that may be the sole sane and viable alternative when the rest are weighed.

 

Also running for the Republican candidacy, though you may not have ever heard of them, are John Kasich and Marco Rubio. These gentlemen may not even win in their home state, a usual given for any candidate (except Al Gore). They are calm, collected and sane, or at least until desperation set in and they knew they had to get media coverage or wilt away. Then there is the one who may be rightfully claiming to be the sole Trump alternative, Ted Cruz. He can be found at the far right end of that spider silk spaghetti strand which has Bernie at the left end. The reality is the average American likely has no candidate who will make it to the November election for President.

The truth is Hillary will be the Democrat candidate if the party establishment gets their wish; otherwise, whoever wins the Republican nomination will be President by default or the United States will complete their fall into irrelevance in the world and the world will enter another age of Islamic expansion, something which may already be unavoidable. More about that distressful thought in our concluding summations. The Republican “establishment” which is also referred to as the Republican elite, an oxymoron if ever we heard one, are desperately seeking anybody with sufficient name recognition, personality, and had not already lost a bid for the Presidency to represent sanity before the loud mouth or the Texan are the only choices remaining. Their BIG money candidate, Jeb, we really need another shrub in the White House, Bush bombed in an unbelievable fashion. Their calm brain surgeon found out that running for President is not for the polite or faint at heart and may be more rocket science than brain surgery. There was no astronaut or rocket scientist volunteering, likely too smart or already been as high as they desired to go unless you’re looking for volunteers to go live on Mars for the duration, something there may be millions of more applicants after the November elections and the people realize who their choices were and allowed the crazies to finish what they started. This might be the first election in American history where everybody stayed home allowing only the most deranged who actually thought their guy was actually a sane choice to vote. We might just get the answer to what if they gave an election and nobody cared?

 

But the United States is far from alone in allowing the leftists to run the show. The next main candidates are the Europeans where there is a glimmer of hope, something that has been missing for quite some time. Even the presumed conservatives are actually leftist in favor of European suicide. For those at a loss, suicide for the Europeans is known as the European Union (EU). Those who have “drank the kool-aid” believe that the EU is what allows everybody to play well and not shoot at each other as had been the practice since forever. With modern warfare if fought as the Europeans had always engaged, all-out with everything they have, then Europe would not survive its next war, and that is what ended European wars, not the EU or any other organization. The EU is actually not a representative governing body in any sense of the term. It is a pure bureaucracy which the European governments send their best manipulative schemers to try and make sure the EU either hurts them as little as possible or grants then the only lifeline that can exist as nobody would fund their lack of productivity if left to their own devices. Only an overbearing and overriding bureaucracy would be capable of demanding that France, Britain, Germany and anybody else with an operative economy would continuously bail out the other nations who apparently are incapable of self-governance or managing an economic model other than holding a hand out and demanding to be saved time after time. There is a potentially saving grace should the British, who wisely retained their currency, actually exercise self-government and vote to leave the EU as that could actually result in the other members of the EU who have an operative governance leaving it as well. The alternative is for them to constantly sacrifice the wellbeing of their own populations in order to service the wellbeing of other nations’ all too needy populations. Of course all of this is predicated on Europe surviving the influx of immigrants who plan on altering the basic nature of the culture into a foreign model which failed completely which is why they are fleeing under the rouse of being refugees from Syria. Europe’s salvation is in the hands of the people; and if they do not care if their children can have a future which is at least as free and libertarian as theirs even with the high levels of socialist governance, then their children will live to witness an all-encompassing tyrannical theocracy descend as a smothering blanket eclipsing every standard of free-choice previous generations enjoyed.

 

Israel also has been within the clutches of leftist belief that freedom can be won through appeasement and surrender to those that wish to obliterate their existence. Those powers which wish to bring about the end of the Jewish State go far and wide beyond simply the Arab Palestinians or even the Arab or Muslim powers in the world. It has been a hushed up truth that Europe has regretted ever permitting Israel to come into existence and had worked behind the scenes, more often than blatantly out in the open, to the detriment of Israeli interests. It began before 1948 with supporting the formation of Jordan on the vast majority of the British mandate and then the United Nations (UN) plan to divide the remainder into an Arab and a Jewish state and even after the Arabs refused that solution, except for the few exceptions, sought to allow the Arab states to eclipse Israel at her birth. There has been a concerted effort to support Arab terrorist demands upon Israel with the constant support for Arab Palestinian demands and the constant threats to end trade with Israel or differentiate on Israeli goods, condemnations of Israeli building in Area C which under the Oslo Accords was Israeli controlled area. But why allow actual agreements get in the way of denouncing Israel. Additionally, the Israeli government actually had the audacity to try and have any NGO (non-governmental organization) which are highly political and can amplify public positions, report their funding, especially if they receive supportive measures from other countries. That support is supposed to be through media or speeches given by their political leaders from abroad. Ah, but there’s the rub that grates against the better and proper judgement, the place where undue influence corrupts the scene.

 

Every nation in the world, whether free or dictatorial, agree on one item, the health of the state demands that any foreign elements or influences, political or otherwise, organization or agency, must identify itself as such, disclose who they actually represent and must reveal their foreign funding, especially and doubly so if they come from another government or foreign NGO or super organization such as the United Nations, European Union, Gulf Cooperation Council, United Workers Union or whatever for the government to recognize and classify them as foreign agents with one glaring exception, Israel. This begs the question of why, plain and simple, why? The reason is even more revealing and devious than are the duplicitous actions of the very governments paying for these interests and their caterwauling and screaming foul simply because Israel wishes to have the exact same truthfulness action made into law that each of these other corruptions have on their own country. Imagine the hue and cry should Israel operate an NGO in France under the name of Francophobes Unite? What many point to as evidence that Israel has just such an organization operating in the United States in AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), which does not receive either direction or funding from the Israeli government, and which reports every donation they receive openly to the IRS as an nonprofit political action group is required to do under United States laws, and whose funding would likely be available under FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) regulations, is a wholly privately funded by United States citizens’ contributions and not an operative of any foreign government, especially Israel. There is an alphabet soup mix of foreign funded, extreme leftist, anti-Zionist, pro-Arab Palestinian, Arabist, anti-Israel, faux-peace, surrender, appease and easily said to be outright anti-Israeli independent NGOs financed virtually completely by foreign interests and governments including many financed by the EU and European governments operating within Israel. They are further backed within Israel by a leftist media and a vocal extreme minority which cannot get their way through the ballot box so have resorted to allying with these foreign benefactors to lobby and bully the government and people of Israel attempting to bludgeon all opposition into submission and using Lawfare and a leftist stranglehold on the courts and legal system. When Israel attempted to make such organizations report their funding, the proof of this overt interference in Israeli self-government was made obvious by the explosive media frenzy and governmental uproar from across the width and breadth of Europe as well as the boisterous explosion largely around Tel Aviv and outside the Knesset in Jerusalem. Then came the threats to take the government to the courts challenging the law should it pass and European governments threatened their own forms of intimidation including taking the matter to international courts or to adjudication under their own courts claims to have international jurisdiction, especially for all things Israel such as to arrest any Israeli government or military official if they step foot outside of Israel. One knows this had gotten to the extreme when the British government had to grant special protective measures to prevent the arrest as ordered by a British court in response to anti-Israeli Lawfare for Tzipi Livni to enter the country and remain free while answering an invitation from the British government. What other democratic nation has such legal warrants sworn out against any public figure, government member, military commander and even individual soldiers whenever they step outside their national borders. Such lunacy is beyond belief but a reality for Israelis. These actions are manifestations of leftists out of control as well as a little something else. Oh, and we in Israel are informed that any belief that such steps are a sign of anti-Semitism is just our being too sensitive. Oh really!?!
