Why the Middle East Peace Process Will Continue

 

The Israeli-Arab Peace Process, aka Middle East peace, aka Palestinian Peace Process and likely a plethora of other monikers are all equally misleading and just an arrogant lie. There never has been an actual peace process. The Oslo Accords of 1993 were simply a reason to bring back Yasser Arafat and his terror henchmen to eradicate the Jewish State. Oslo was initiated by a group of Israeli leftists, the Netherlands operating as the European enabler used by the State Department, and State Department officials working to destroy Israel for their Arab oil masters. The description just given is not intended to claim that everybody involved in the Peace Process do so with ulterior motives other than establishing peace. The actual expected goals of the peace process is to cut Israel down by taking a piece this decade, a peace that decade and piece after piece until Israel is unable to defend herself and is eradicated in an orgasmic genocidal assault by Arab terror forces and armies who will simply finish their intended purpose in fighting the Zionist Entity best described so succinctly by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League who stated, before six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel in May of 1948, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” This idea was known to be the state of things as they prepared to leave their Mandate allowing those residing within to fend for themselves. Jordan was already established as Transjordan, and the Arabs had six national armies and several militias and terrorist forces ready for the expected annihilation of the Jews and their state. The British went so far as to confiscate every firearm and weapon the Jews had managed to stockpile and transfer them to the Arab militias arming more Arabs and disarming Jews. This attitude by most of Europe has never changed and they are still on the sidelines cheering for the end of Israel.

 

The latest example of the animus targeting Israel comes from a United Nations forum headed by Norway consisting of the fifty-four-nation United Nations Economic and Social Council which considered a resolution that says, “the Israeli occupation remains a major obstacle for Palestinian women and girls with regard to the fulfillment of their rights.” Norway, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Luxembourg and Malta joined with China, Russia, Iran and Venezuela and 29 other nations in supporting this targeted resolution. There was also another resolution that was passed mentioning “social repercussions of the Israeli occupation” more generally. Israel was the only country named as a violator or trouble spot by the Council during the session, according to the UN Watch organization. Only Canada and the United States voted against the resolution while the United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Romania and Ukraine were among the nine nations that abstained from the vote. This is one of a myriad of examples of the world stirring the pot blaming Israel for every ill and difficulty faced by the surrounding Arab World, specifically the Arab Palestinians.

 

This farce known as the Peace Process has been continued despite all evidence that it is useless as the Arab Palestinian leadership, be it the PLO, Palestinian Authority (PA), Hamas, Islamic Jihad and even Hezballah, all consistently exclaim their intentions to destroy Israel and even kill every Jew on planet Earth and that they have absolutely no interest in peace other than the peace of the grave for the Jews and their state. The PA has refused every attempt at peace even to include the occasion where President William Jefferson Clinton received from Yasser Arafat his minimal demands which he would accept to make peace. President Clinton then met with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak twisting his arm and bending his ears until he agreed to meet the entirety of Arafat’s demands. All were gathered the next morning in Paris, France, as Prime Minister Ehud Barak and advisors, President Clinton, Secretary of State Madeline Albright and advisors along with a herd of media were waiting for the signing of this monumental agreement hammered out by President Clinton specifically to meet Yasser Arafat’s every demand. Yasser Arafat appeared coming down the steps, walking straight across the rotunda, out the entry foyer and into his waiting car which sped him to the airport where he flew to Aman, Jordan and subsequently initiated the Second Intifada in place of peace. This was likely the closest any United States President ever came to actually reaching a peace between Israel and the Arab Palestinians as President Clinton had gone to sleep content in the fact that he had done all that was necessary to reach peace. Under President George W. Bush, another Ehud, this time Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, agreed to what has been termed the most favorable peace offer ever made to the Arab Palestinians and it was rejected outright. Also, during the terms of President George W. Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon agreed to remove every last vestige of Jewish and Israeli presence throughout Gaza providing the PA with an opportunity to show the world their great ability to run an actual governance and economy. Within a few years, Gaza was surrendered by the PA to Hamas in a bloodied coup and is today controlled and ruled by Hamas with Islamic Jihad with both terrorist groups coming under Iranian influence, Iranian control. The result of this sacrifice by Israel, like every other concession Israel has made for peace, fell on deaf ears only to be met by further terror, death, injuries and violence.

 

There have been two glaring truths which the United Nations, European Union, Non-Aligned Movement (group of over one-hundred developing nations often voting in unison with the Arab world), the Arab and Muslim worlds, Pseudo-Human Rights groups, United Nations agencies and the multitude of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Semitic NGO’s have all gleefully ignored, that Israel has made all the concessions seeking a real peace while the Arabs have continued to demand that the Jewish State be dissolved and the Jews placed under Arab rule to do with them as demanded in the Quran. For those not that familiar with the Quran, we offer our article as an introduction, Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? and provide the truth, the Quran allows Islamic rulers to provide the Jews with protection in exchange for their paying the Jizya, and when this proves inadequate to tolerate the insult of Jews living within the Islamic World, the Jews are given their final choice, convert or die. The eventual result of destroying Israel and allowing for Arab Islamic rule to take over the lands, is the extinction of the Jews who were unable or simple refusing to leave Israel despite any hardships. The eventual intent of the Arab Palestinian leadership is the genocidal removal of the Jews from what they consider to be their world.

 

Star of David Ornate

 

The Arab Palestinian leadership has reached the pinnacle of obstinance with the coming “Deal of the Century” which is being proposed by President Donald Trump. Mahmoud Abbas (Yasser Arafat in a suit) denounced any and all preferrings originating from the United States as long as President Trump holds the White House. Yes, there is definitely a “hate-hate” relationship between Mahmoud Abbas and President Trump. Mahmoud Abbas is able to denounce any and all peace offerings simply depending on the support of the anti-Trump Democrats in the United States and the anti-Trump Europeans to continue to support Abbas and protect him from any harm which could result from the efforts by President Trump. These anti-Trump forces have all the agencies of the United Nations, the Human Right Commission, the United Nations General Assembly, the BDS Movement, numerous anti-Israel NGO’s, the European Union, and, of course, the Arab and Islamic Worlds to utilize in their efforts to support and continue the terror assault on Israel and her citizens. So, this all begs the question, what are the actual intents of more of the world than even we feel comfortable in recognizing. Well, the initial answer is that much of the world as well as including specifically Mahmoud Abbas, the PA, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Iran and most of the Islamic World have absolutely no desire for peace with Israel but rather peace of the grave for all Israel.

 

The real problem facing Israel disguised as the Peace Process is the desire of the majority of the world’s leadership and power brokers to erase what they regard as their greatest mistake, the granting for the Jews self-rule in their ancient homelands. One can see how Britain along with France and numerous others starting almost immediately after the San Remo Conference in taking lands from the British Mandate intended for the Jewish State and gifting them to Arabs. The first such move was the taking of the Golan Heights and Britain giving them to France to incorporate into the Arab nation of Syria and denying them to Israel. The next move was to take seventy-eight-percent of the remaining British Mandate lands and making them into Transjordan (now Jordan) placing it under the rule of the Hashemite Arab Muslims. From this point, things begin to become absolutely absurd and are only believable by studying history of the region since the 1850’s when the initial Zionists started to arrive followed soon thereafter by waves of Arabs seeking employment or by stealing lands (farms) from the Jews who had built irrigation and drained the swamps. Those seeking employment or willing to cooperate with the early Zionists were welcomed. The others, under the influences of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, gathered starting in the 1920’s rioting destroying Jewish businesses, homes and murdering Jews while the British largely stood aside observing only firing a weapon when the Arab gangs threatened the British troops, and one shot fired into the air or ground was all the British were required to shoot to end the violence. The violence was rarely, if ever, terminated by firing a single shot as long as the Jews were the sole targets. But what about the modern era, what has developed?

 

President Trump has held his economic introduction announcing the extent of monetary assistance he is willing to provide in order to improve the lives of Arab Palestinians. Obviously, President Trump must be unaware that the Arab Palestinians receive an inordinately huge percentage of economic aid provided all needful people as displayed by the graph below. As evidenced, the Arab Palestinians have received between three to ten times the economic aid provided other needy peoples. All this infusion of monetary aid has never come close to doing anything beyond providing the funds to continue the terror war against Israel. But President Trump and the presumed others who are promising this economic infusion into the PA and Gaza will not need be delivered as the PA, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and much of the Arab world have refused the aid claiming that they cannot be bribed into accepting the Jewish State. Most of the economic aid will find its way to these terrorist groups anyways. Even if this promised money is not given under President Trump, it will be granted over time by the United Nations, UNRWA, the European Union, numerous European nations, NGOs around the world and other state and non-state actors will be sure to provide funding beyond their wildest requirements. This was evidenced when President Trump cut United States funding of UNRWA as they refused to modify their curriculum from initiating terrorism and violence against Israel and Jews to a curriculum more conducive for promoting peace and President Trump also cut the funding to the PA removing an amount equivalent to their investment in the “pay to slay” funding of terrorism and the Europeans and United Nations immediately stepped forward and filled the gap in funding as the terrorism must continue. President Trump has asked the “question which must not be asked” when he postulated that Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas and most of the Arab Palestinian leadership do not desire to make peace and instead intend to continue their terror war against Israel and the Jewish People with any and all funds received. Now that the “question which must not be asked” has been hatched and all have had to realize the truth, that the Arab Palestinian leaders will never accept peace unless it destroys the Jewish State placing the Jews, considered to be inferiors to their Islamic masters, allowing the Arabs to hold their rightful place as rulers over all of the lands. Thus, their chant across the Western college and university protests of, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be free.” Many Western leaders agree with the sentiment of those words and are agreeable to working towards such an end.

This explains why no peace has ever been attained. Contrary to the pro-Arab and anti-Semitic world’s claims that Israel has never made any moves or sacrifices for peace, the evidence is vastly different. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt for peace. Israel left Gaza for peace and received rockets, incendiary balloons and kites and continual rioting along the Gaza border. Israel provided in the Oslo Accords to divided the region granting the Arab Palestinians civil control over Areas A and B while Israel was granted control over Area C. Currently, the European Union has been building unauthorized illegal structures throughout Area C and labeling them as Arab Palestinian communities in an attempt to cut all of the Jewish communities off from the rest of Israel leaving them to wither on the vine. The United Nations joins the European Union in condemning Israel should Israel destroy these illegal structures. They insist that these are viable and Arab communities with all the rights of a recognized community, despite the fact most of these communities are not used as residence for anyone and only some come into use for guided tours of the deprivations the Arabs live under because Israel refuses to give them water, sewage systems, electricity, gas, proper roads and other utilities for these illegally built communities. They pay Arab Palestinians to sit around these structures providing a show for people, usually media and political visitors, who are brought through to witness the play which unfolds as the propaganda for blaming Israel as if she was actually depriving the Arab Palestinians a decent life. All of this trouble simply to provide cover for the terror war designed to eventually destroy the Jewish State. But this farce continues to function like a well-oiled machine backed by the UN, EU, Arab and Islamic Worlds, the world’s dictatorships and other anti-Semitic forces. The Arab Palestinian terror masters do not have to do anything but continue to murder Jews and destroy every and anything Israeli and they will have sufficient support from most of the world, eventually including the United States despite what many believe, and the cash will continue to roll in.

 

Now there has come one last item which, if it does not trigger a reaction, will finally reveal the fraud that is the Arab Palestinian cause. It has come to our attention that the PA has forbidden Arabs to voluntarily leave the PA controlled areas. At political symposium in Jericho, Saab Erekat stated, “…we will not allow resettlement or formation of refugee committees for that aim, while holding on to the settlement of their cause in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions.” The PA is demanding that UN Resolution 194 which states, “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.” Israel opened their doors in the first decade of Israeli existence for those Arabs who had fled at the behest of the Mufti to return. The Arab League leadership refused to permit these Arabs from returning placing them into refugee camps where they and their prodigy have remained in limbo ever since. This demand is a smoke screen which is glaringly obvious as they are refusing to permit Arabs from leaving their locations, be that in Gaza, Areas A and B, and the remaining refugee camps, thus how can UN Resolution 194 be carried out if Arabs are forbidden from moving, period. Their demand, which will become a rally cry screeched over any statement describing the true reality, will be possibly, “UN Resolution 194, show the Jews the exit door.” Then, with boosts from their enablers, they will claim that Israel is refusing to allow Arab Palestinians from returning to their homes, which mostly have not existed since the early 1960’s, and the world will ignore Erekat’s declaration that no Arab will be permitted to leave the PA ruled areas and Hamas has the same restriction in Gaza. So, as usual, the Arabs are causing the perpetuation of the terror war and victimization of their own population and then are echoed by their enablers when singing their old tune that the Jews are restricting Arab freedom of movement. Lastly, this new restriction was put in place just in case the “Deal of the Century” which President Donald Trump is revealing might include resettlement of the Arab Palestinians, often returning them to the country from which they had left to move to the areas becoming the Jewish State of the years and rejoining their families and tribes which mostly remained behind. So, Arab Palestinian leadership restricts the movement of their citizens which the world blames Israel for this restriction because the Arab leadership will claim they were forced to take these steps because Israel must be blamed because the world knows how those Jews can be. Well, if given truth serum, then maybe many in the world would speak the truth, otherwise they just blame Israel, the nation of the Jews.

What Difference Do “Days of Rage” Make?

 

Last week, after President Trump recognizing the reality that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, though also adding enough qualifiers so as not to actually change anything other than making clear that, at the very least, half of Jerusalem will be the Capital of Israel, the Arabs on all borders and within Israel announced three Days of Rage. Perhaps a little clarity would be of some assistance. Every Friday afternoon the Arabs in Judea and Samaria have demonstrations at specific locations where they act against Israeli security forces, IDF, Border Police and regular police, with varying degrees of violence from shouting curses and spitting to throwing rocks often using slings of the variety with which David slew Goliath or even shooting at the Israeli forces from behind rock throwing children so as to get movies of Israeli security forces firing rubber bullets presumably at the children with the people with the rifles out of frame. So if these outbreaks of violence are almost as regular as clockwork, what is the big deal with announcing Days of Rage? That is simple. Where the regular violence is performed so that the Pallywood cameras can record everything from various angles such that the best editing makes the acts look real to use in Arab propaganda throughout the world to portray the Israelis as savage monsters; the announced Days of Rage are special because that signals the world media to come and record the action for the six o’clock news broadcasts and are aimed largely at the United States media as well as international media such as CNN and the BBC. There will be a less official Day of Rage again this Friday and actually are being carried out in select locations all week for the remaining media who are still hanging around just in case a really good action piece emerges showing Israel in the worst possible light.

The reality is that there are staged eruptions at the most effective checkpoints often organized by European and other leftist groups some of which include leftist Israelis. Just as are present in the United States, Europe and the rest of the developed world, there are the useful idiots who take the side that their country is a terrible and oppressive nation, as it had not adopted their idea of a socialist utopia. We have them here in Israel as well except here they are far more dangerous as the world, especially in Europe; use these people to demean the government and the security forces which protect them. These are far leftists who would demand for Israel to sacrifice its Jewishness on the altar of a socialist plurality which permitted the entirety of the so-called Palestinian refugees who number closing in on eight-million to become Israelis along with the Arabs in Judea and Samaria giving the Arab Palestinians a majority voice in the government. To them having a Jewish State is an anathema and anachronistic as they argue that no other nation in the world is religiously based. Obviously they have never heard of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq or the other nations which claim to be Islamic States, but it is not that Israel has a religiosity, it is that it is Jewish that bothers them. These often are Jews ashamed of their own Jewishness so they argue that everything Jewish must be made less Jewish until nothing is Jewish. For this reason, they side with their enemies believing that their enemies will reward them once Israel as a Jewish State has been destroyed. Should such an event ever occur, Hashem forbid, then they will find out that they are considered as Jewish as every other Jew in Israel and will receive identical treatment.

Still, with or without any assistance, the Arab Palestinians will protest and riot on a regular basis with checkpoints which are most effective in preventing terrorist attacks targeted in hopes of forcing their being dismantled, on the Temple Mount, and in Bethlehem and other readily recognized locations which will thus garner the greatest amount of media coverage. The media in much of the world has reported that there have been riots in every part of Israel in response to President Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem. That is far from the reality. There were some demonstrations along the Gaza border with a small number of rockets launched into Israel, disruptions on the Temple Mount and in Eastern parts of Jerusalem, in Bethlehem and some other locations in Judea and Samaria. As for most of Israel, life has continued uninterrupted and as peaceful as can be. But a peaceful Israel does not make for breathtaking news alerts on the hour and the half hour, only broad rioting wherever the media can see amounts to making for good news reporting. Ask yourself if you saw coverage of rioting in Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, Ashod, Netanya, Herzliya, Ma’alot, Eilat or Akko. Isn’t it remarkable that there have been no reports of rioting or violence in all of these Israeli cities, some of the most well known and largest in the little country? Perhaps the lack of news about problems in all of these locations is because the violence is limited to the few locations where the news coverage was directed and nowhere else. What is not a very well know fact about Israel is that, even including terrorist acts, you are less likely to have a violent crime committed against your person in Israel than you are in the United States. Part of the reason is that Israel has remarkably low crime and a well-ordered and happy society. This is proven by the World Happiness Report where Israel is the eleventh happiest nation on the planet. That is an eye-opener, is it not?

 

Truth of Middle East Conflicts and their Death Tolls

 

Now for the real brain-teaser, we are about to enter the low rioting season. Arab rioting in Israel is seasonal and when it is colder and rainy, there is far less rioting, terror and violence in general. On the other hand, when it gets very hot in the balmy days of summer there is far greater propensity for violence from the Arab Palestinians. This is similar to crime statistics in most major cities where crime increases when it is very hot and drops precipitously when winter arrives. The rioting in Israel is very seasonal peaking in July and August and dropping off in January and February. If the rioting, terrorism and violence really were about the harsh and terrible treatment imposed by Israel, then one would expect there to be an even number of provocations throughout the year and a very steady level of related violence. But that is not the case as it is actually very seasonal with peaks also coming during Jewish holidays, specifically those holidays when Jews are most likely to desire visiting the Temple Mount. This is why during the weeks leading up to Rosh HaShana, Yom Kippur and through Sukkot the rioting on the Temple Mount hits a crescendo forcing the closing of the Temple Mount. What is interesting is this closure of the Temple Mount is more often just imposed on Jews and only when the rioting becomes dangerously damaging that the Temple Mount is completely closed, which leads to greater rioting at the entrances which are barred by Security Forces. Odd that it is during these special holidays that suddenly there erupts violence by the Arabs to close the Temple Mount to all non-Muslims; but when Christmas arrives there is no rioting, instead, there are Arab merchants at the entrances selling seasonal gifts and souvenirs as well as food to the visiting foreigners who have money to spend. Then again coming into and through Passover there oddly enough is no second wave of Temple Mount violence. This would be strange as it is another holiday when Jews desire visiting the Temple Mount. But Passover always corresponds to Easter and that brings those tourists with the money to spend and business takes precedence over preventing the Jews from visiting the Temple Mount. Some things are universal and making money off holiday traffic is one of them.

Why the World Concentrates on Israel

 

We will limit this discussion to the modern Israel leaving out the three-thousand plus years since Avraham, the forefather of the Jewish People who are descended from the Hebrews who were brought out of Egypt with Moses. Zionism has much to do with the rebirth of Israel and where as the Zionist Movement was something new, Zionism defined as the desire by the Jewish People to return to their native homelands as defined in Tanach, the Torah, as the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, has existed from when Joseph was taken to Egypt until Moses led the people to the Promised Land and again from the start of the Babylonian Exile until Cyrus the Great permitted the Jewish People to return and rebuild the Temple and again starting with the Roman dispersions, the first dispersion around the year 70 A.D. and the second dispersion around the year 130 A.D. causing the Jews to become the Diaspora. Modern Zionism was driven by a long held desire for Hashem to do again what he had already done twice in the history of the Jewish People, send a savior. The first savior was well known, Moses, the man who also gave the Jews their law, the Ten Commandments and the entire Torah. The second savior came from an unexpected place, a conqueror who vanquished the Babylonian Empire bringing in its place the Persian Empire; yet Cyrus saw to allow the Jews to run their lives as an autonomous region for as long as they paid their tribute. Then for century after century which became millennia, almost two millennia and still no savior.

 

Then the idea came and was championed by a few very strong and determined individuals. For a list of these impassioned men and women one can go here. They wrote, petitioned, bargained and finally found a great ally in Lord Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary and author of the Balfour Declaration. This came after World War I as part of a great reestablishing of indigenous rights and a redrawing of the maps of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa would come the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the Versailles Treaty and the Mandate System. Part of this resulted in the defining once again of a Jewish homeland between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. The League of Nations placed the name of that world body behind the Mandate System and this was further endorsed as enforceable by the United Nations which recognized it as still valid in Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Finally, on May 15, 1948 the nation of Israel was declared and came into being. Within hours, Arab armies of six nations and several militias attacked the new nation of Israel pouring over every border. Nearly two years later an Armistice was signed with the expressed insistence by the Arab parties that none of the lines drawn could ever be used to define any border with Israel, their idea. The Jewish People lost Gaza to Egypt as well as Judea and Samaria to Jordan. When peace was reached with Egypt, they relinquished their possession of Gaza and when peace was reached with Jordan, they relinquished any claims to what they renamed the West Bank, the original Judea and Samaria.

 

The world had a slow change of heart concerning the Jewish State which steadily attempted to assure there were always more Arabs than Jews in the lands designated to become Israel, something which prevented the Jews being murdered by the Nazis from having anyplace to which to run. There was a connection between the Holocaust and the founding of Israel, but it was never a direct connection. The connection was simply that the Europeans and the allied powers from World War II were so shocked and filled with guilt by the horrifying findings in the concentration camps that they were silenced and anti-Semitism took a brief holiday. There were claims made by hopeful and overly optimistic Jews and Christians alike that the horrors of the concentration camps would vanquish anti-Semitism permanently. Unfortunately, that was not the case, as anti-Semitism was never even dented by the events of World War II in the Islamic world. That anti-Semitism of the Islamic world, specifically the Arab and the Persian Islamic worlds, the hearts of the Shiite and Sunni Islamic centers in the world has grown through several defeats as they smashed into Israel in attempts to destroy what they consider the accursed Zionist entity which has stolen Islamic lands, what they call an Islamic Waqf, a holy defined area which having once belonged to Islam must never be permitted to leave the domains of Islam. Spain shares this curse, as it was once Andalusia and a part of the Caliphate. The same is true of the Balkans and certain regions of China, India, Russia and the Philippines as they were once a part of the Islamic conquests.

 

The British never lost their anti-Semitism and as the holders of the Mandate attempted to prevent Israel from ever coming into existence through forcing Arabs to be relocated into the area which was to be Israel preventing any Jewish majority. But between Arabs revolting against British rule and the Jews revolting against British rule, the British decided that enough was enough, satisfied that once they had left the Arabs would solve their Jewish problem and deny the Jews ever successfully making their nation. There were even British working assisting the Arab forces. What was somewhat astonishing were the Nazis working together with the Arabs to erase the Jewish State. The desire to bring an end to the State of Israel has grown in Europe since day one and now reached a point where the European Union is building substandard communities with improper plumbing, limited water, no waste management and all in a concerted effort to deny the Jews the lands promised them by international law. Any claim that the Jewish State and the Jewish People do not have clear and complete claim to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea are lies used to attempt to bring down and destroy the Jewish State.

 

Military experts have all agreed that should Israel be forced from Judea and Samaria that the nation will become indefensible and that it will mean that the Jews will be forced from the central area including Tel Aviv, as rockets will be able to be poured down with directly observable adjustment of trajectories making the entire area uninhabitable. This will cut the nation into halves which will be able to be defeated easily. Further, all of the Israeli airports, civilian and military will be within easy range for artillery should the lands of Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, be turned over to Arab Palestinians. Further, once Iran or any other hostile Arab country acquires nuclear weapons, then Israel will be facing threat of nuclear annihilation should they respond to such Arab attacks from these lands militarily. Only having the entirety of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea can Israel use the Jordan Valley (see image below) as a defensive barrier against land attack and make direct threat to the population sufficiently difficult that any nations attempting such would be in obvious violation of Israeli borders and thus having committed an act of war by all definitions.

Israel today is facing two opposing movements throughout the world. What is truly astonishing is that these opposing forces exist in numerous nations. The developed world is very interested in the Israeli hi-tech sector and the discoveries and inventions of what is known as Start-Up Nation. Medical institutions and physicians worldwide depend on Israeli breakthroughs, surgical techniques, breakthrough drugs and other medical advances. In Africa, a number of communities are dependent upon Israeli technologies for their clean water and agricultural developments and techniques for increased crop yields not to mention the medical assistance Israel provides. Everywhere on the globe willing to accept Israeli assistance, whenever there are natural or unnatural disasters such as earthquake, volcano, tornado, typhoon, nuclear meltdown or anything you care to name, the Israeli IDF dispatch units who are often specialists trained for the difficulties faced on the ground as well as specialists for those special cases. Yet, in some of these very nations are governments who in the United Nations support any and every denunciations of Israel whenever the opportunity presents itself. In people I believe some would call it schizophrenia, with nations it is called diplomacy. On one hand, they benefit from many things which Israel does and then they condemn Israel for whatever she does or does not do or those items which she is accused of and despite all knowing her innocence, she is condemned just because they can condemn her. We attempted to talk about an idea whose time will come; it is just a matter of when. If only the world would leave Israel alone and allow her, unmolested, to finally make real peace and find a means for allowing the Arabs within her legal borders a choice; semi autonomy, relocation to their former home country or other nation willing to absorb them with a healthy relocation bonus provided to assist their futures in return for their not returning to Israel ever, or another yet undiscovered solution which can never be found as long as the world breathlessly constantly attempts to use the Arab world to destroy the Jewish state calling it the peace process. We only care to place one last item before you for consideration; why is it a requirement for the United Nations Human Rights Council to condemn Israel for any reason either general or specific as a permanent part of their meeting itinerary, their permanent schedule. It has reached such a twisted point that Nikki Haley says United States may leave UN Human Rights Council over ‘anti-Israel bias’ which would only serve as a useless gesture.

 

A greater resolve would lead to the disbanding of what has become a less than perfect tool obsessed with destroying the Jewish state and being utilized as a tool for the anti-Semites disguised as anti-Zionists of the world, and they are Legion. Why is the world so obsessed with Israel and destroying the Jewish state and then the Jewish People if permitted the opportunity. There is one thing which makes all these efforts possibly futile, and it is what has allowed Israel to survive as they did against all odds in 1948 and again in 1967 and 1973 and continued to survive ever since. How was it that Israel was predicted in the Old Testament, Isaiah 66:7-8, to become a nation in a single day. Below are the words in context where they speak of things but in verse eight, it tells of Israel being reborn in a single day in almost straightforward language. The prophet Isaiah lived 740-681 B.C.E. which was over two and a half millennia ago and stated a reality which became true on May 15, 1948, how could one doubt that Israel will be protected as promised as well, that this is the final and permanent return of the Jewish People to their homeland promised to Avraham, Isaac and Yaakov? Israel can be the greatest gift and benefit to all of mankind as Hashem promised, she just requires she be given the opportunity. Israel desires not more land than what was promised to Avraham, the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, no more and no less. Give Israel a chance and she will produce for humanity as she promised. She is largely responsible for much of cell phone technology, security software and medical and science breakthroughs and if these do not grab your attention, then remember that Israel gave the world cherry tomatoes.

 

5. Hearken to the word of the Lord, who quake at His word, “Your brethren who hate you, who cast you out, said, “For the sake of my name, the Lord shall be glorified,” but we will see your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
6. There is a sound of stirring from the city, a sound from the Temple, the voice of the Lord, recompensing His enemies.
7. When she has not yet travailed, she has given birth; when the pang has not yet come to her, she has been delivered of a male child.
8. Who heard [anything] like this? Who saw [anything] like these? Is a land born in one day? Is a nation born at once, that Zion both experienced birth pangs and bore her children?
9. “Will I bring to the birth stool and not cause to give birth?” says the Lord. “Am I not He who causes to give birth, now should I shut the womb?” says your God.
10. Rejoice with Jerusalem and exult in her all those who love her: rejoice with her a rejoicing, all who mourn over her.
