Election Update, Can Bibi be Stopped?

 

We are not foolish enough or so blind as to believe that Bibi will not be forming the next government. This is almost an inevitability. But what can be prevented is his forming a “Unity Government” with Blue White while leaving the New Right-United Right coalition he all but forged himself out in the cold. It is entirely possible, probable even, that between Likud and Blue White parties they will have over sixty mandates likely achieving as high as sixty-seven mandates between the two parties. Such an outcome precludes any other parties being required to form a government. We understand that everyone who proposed such an outcome thus far have had their prediction ridiculed and their acumen questioned. We would rather simply explain our reasoning and allow it to stand or be crushed by the eventual events surrounding the coming September elections.

First, we will admit we feared this when Bibi was unable to cobble together a right-leaning coalition after the elections just passed and failed in forming a coalition. We even see the European Union (EU) having a small hand in these coming disasters. They are the reason that Bibi needs a coalition which he has sufficient control such that it cannot crumble as the plans move ahead. Bibi is facing the Sharon moment when his entire reputation into the future will be affected. Ariel Sharon faced a similar threat to his plan but managed to form a new coalition under a new party without holding elections. He took a fair number of Likud members as the core to his new Kadima Party and formed a unity government around them using the Labor Party as the main partner. This led to the Gaza Withdrawal. One particular factoid which bears remembering is that until immediately before the Gaza Withdrawal was executed, Bibi Netanyahu remained allied with Ariel Sharon only pulling his support when it became obvious that Bibi would have lost his credibility within Likud, something which would have made his run as Prime Minister impossible. Bibi pulling away from Sharon was something necessary for its political expediency and to hold together the power base which Bibi had formed and who would be his springboard back into the Prime Minister position. But Bibi also was impressed by the media attention and the praises lavished upon Ariel Sharon simply for his having permitted Israeli policies to be dictated by the United States, specifically the State Department, and the approving light shined on the Gaza Withdrawal by the EU and its member states.

 

We have always suspected that Bibi Netanyahu plays to two audiences, the core Likudnics who keep him at the fore of his party and the European leaders from their respective capitals and the EU as the voice of Europe. These are also the main controlling forces behind much of the world media, or the result of what the media praises and condemns. Bibi is not solely to blame for far too many of the positions and decisions he makes as we fear that Sarah, his wife, has far too much sway and influence over his actions and even sometimes what he is permitted to think. This may have been the source rumors after the last elections that Bibi had signed an agreement with the EU allowing them to build anywhere in Area C from the Oslo Accords which had designated Areas A and B for the Palestinians to build and Area C was to be reserved for Israel. Of course it did not take the EU and numerous European nations along with the United States State Department, from now on this grouping shall be referred to as “the Beasts,” from decrying that the entirety of the disputed territory was supposed to be given to the Arabs and Israel should just be glad they were permitted to win the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War. Any other nation on planet Earth who had been attacked by around half a dozen neighboring countries would be granted the right to annex whatever lands were considered necessary to provide more secure and defensible borders. The aggrieved nation would also have the right to force the inhabitants of any lands they deemed necessary for their achieving good and decent borders to relocate into the nation from which said lands were acquired without any remuneration. These were the rules by which the entirety of the map of Europe was drawn, actually redrawn, after World War I when the Austria-Hungarian Empire and German Empire were broken up by the victorious allies (see maps below). This redrawing of the map even went so far as to create several nations such as Poland, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. These nations were formed under the auspices that indigenous peoples required their own nation, the exact reason why at the same time as Europe was redrawn, so was the Ottoman Empire and Israel was to be established as the homeland of the Jewish People. The British Mandate declared that the borders of the state of Israel were the Negev border with the Sinai Peninsula, the Blue Line with Lebanon, the Golan Heights with Syria and the Jordan River with Transjordan (later renamed Jordan). What is most definitely notable by its absence is the imaginary nation of Palestine where Palestinian Arabs presumably are the indigenous peoples.

Even the wars Israel was forced to fight simply to be born in 1948, again in 1967 and once more in 1973, after this loss the new tactic of terrorism and destroying Israel in stages became the order of the day. So, let us list the combatants in each of the wars Israel has survived and it just may be educational for us. The war of 1948 has euphemistically called the Israeli War of Independence simply because the war was launched mere hours after Israel was formed and had declared their independence from the British Mandate and British rule. A more accurate description of the war was given by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time, who stated, “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.” The proper name for the 1948 war is it was a War of Annihilation where the Jews would be wiped from the map of the Middle East and the world. Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen who were further aided by irregulars such as the Holy War Army, Arab Liberation Army and other militias plus what were called foreign volunteers consisting of the Muslim Brotherhood, Pakistan and the Sudan. Then in 1967 came the Six Day War, so named because it took six days. The combatants on the Arab side were Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon along with aid from numerous other Arab nations and several militias. The war in 1973 was launched in a surprise attack by the Arab forces on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur when virtually everybody was either in Synagogue or at the beach if they were less religious. For the history challenged, this was before cellphones and the IDF commanders sent trucks with loudspeakers atop announcing the universal call up as Israel was at war. IDF soldiers were seen running through the streets to their homes to grab their military gear and then they met up and formed impromptu units with whomever they had and set off to turn back the invading Arab armies. These included Egypt and Syria with expeditionary forces, a nice way of saying they did not send everybody, from Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Cuba with the entire effort supported and armed by the USSR. This was the time when the Russian leader Leonid Brezhnev called Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir demanding that Israel cease fighting their poor innocent Arab allies by noon Thursday or face the wrath of the Soviet Union. The call was made on Tuesday and Golda Meir simply replied to Leonid Brezhnev asking, “Why wait?” or so it was reported. The Soviet Union did not join the war. But reviewing the names of those who fought against Israel and one notices the absence of anything remotely Palestine related. The claim that Israel was founded over top of what was Palestine hold no validity either as before the lands became Israel, they were a part of the British Mandate and before that the Ottoman Empire. There has never been a nation called Palestine in all of history. But the world is dead set on inventing it and working with the Arabs to replace Israel with Palestine.

 

This is the reason that the EU pressed Israel to provide them permission to build in Area C where their intent is to place Palestinian towns such that all the Jewish communities are completely cut off from Israel and can be suffocated when the next round of violence starts. The EU has already been building a number of these communities without permits or any arrangements for making them habitable. They do serve well as a propaganda and political message as the Arabs will place themselves in these towns and guides bring EU officials, heads of state and UN officials through these communities pointing out their dearth of utilities or anything which might make them habitable. Since these communities have thus far been simply thrown up anywhere the EU can find open areas, preferable at hill tops or other critical places all without permits or making arrangements, these communities lack roads, electricity, gas, water, sewage or any other niceties. They even lack cable television. When the tours are given, the lack of utilities is blamed on Israel and these officials gobble that up without checking the validity, after all, the Jews are denying these poor people utilities, why look up the facts when it is so obvious to these anti-Semites. But this is apparently about to change, and why, because the EU and the UN and far too many leaders around the world to even try to list have all claimed that all of the disputed area must not be returned to Israel. But now the EU desires having these communities and all future EU constructions to be provided with utilities, roads and everything to make them habitable and thus new facts on the ground supporting the claims by leftists and anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and anti-Semites that none of the disputed territories have any relation which could imply Israeli ownership of these lands. These are all parts of the efforts which began almost immediately after the San Remo Conference set the lands between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River as set aside for the Jewish State. Even Egypt and Jordan recognized that they had held Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank) actually belong to Israel as they relented all claims to these areas which they had illegally occupied from 1949 until Israel liberated them in the 1967 Six Day War. The only remaining action under international law which remained to be executed was the relocating of the peoples back into the redrawn borders placing them under their proper national control. But why allow a little thing such as international law be applied to Israel which, according to so many in this world of ours, has no right to exist on any land no matter how small an area. The main country which has made any moves towards recognition of the Israeli right to these lands has been the United States and largely due to the support given Israel by Congress since the early 1970’s when United States aid and allying with Israel initially began.

 

For those who believe that the United States has always had Israel’s back, here are a few facts which belie such thoughts. Yes, the United States voted for the UN patrician plan which would have taken the lands west of the Jordan river and divided it between Israel and a new Arab state (see map below). They then proceeded to place an arms embargo on the entire Middle East which allowed the Soviet Union to back their Arab allies and left Israel basically alone. Israel was originally provided aircraft by France who sold Israel some Mirage jets. The United States took an interest in Israel after the Six Day War as Israel appeared to be worthy of American support against the Soviet backed Arab states. It was when Israel was about to put the Lavi fighter, an indigenous production by Israeli industries, that the United States had second thoughts. The Lavi would have been in direct competition with the F-16 on the international arms market that caused the United States to propose a deal with Israel if she would stop their production of the Lavi even before they had started to produce this indigenous fighter jet. America offered F-16’s plus F-15’s and they promised that Israel would always have air superiority supported by the United States. This promise has recently fallen by the wayside as the United States is providing Saudi Arabia and Egypt with F-35 JSF’s, the same aircraft they have provided Israel thus making the Arab air forces having more F-35 JSF’s than Israel possesses. For this reason, economic reasons and simply dependence on nobody else are reasons that Israel must immediately make plans to produce their own aircraft once more. This would provide for thousands of high paying jobs for everything from production line personnel to the engineers required to design the next generation of jet fighters and other support aircraft. This would make Israel more independent and no longer having to rely on the United States aircraft meeting the Israeli requirements for their own air superiority.

Meanwhile, Bibi Netanyahu has already begun working on the means for permitting the EU to build facts on the ground in Area C. In a recent Cabinet meeting, Ministers set guidelines for approval of construction of housing units for Arabs in Area C. This is the necessary step required to make these EU communities legal and becoming fact on the ground. Once there have been guidelines set, they can be twisted, spindled, folded, torn and manipulated in order to provide cover for any and everything the EU desire to build and the eventual cutting off of the Jewish communities in Area C such that they will become unsupportable and have to be relinquished upon which the Arabs will take them over as well. The end result of this is to allow for the creation of an Arab Palestinian state covering the entirety of the disputed lands. The only area which would remain disputed would be East Jerusalem. This is where the PLO and PA demand that their state have its capital city. Should the Arabs succeed in making East Jerusalem part of their state, it would mean the Western Wall, Temple Mount and numerous other historic and biblical places being placed beyond the reach of the Jews just as it was when Jordan occupied these lands. Gaza has already been surrendered and Hamas with Islamic Jihad hold this region from which they launch attacks upon Israel often at the behest of Iran. Should the EU, UN, world busybodies and whomever else is pressing for the establishing of a new Arab state cut from the midsection of Israel succeed, which with Bibi’s assistance is inevitable, then Israel will have been forced back to the initial borders she faced at the onset of the Six Day War. This would make Israel nine miles in width at her narrowest point centered on Tel Aviv. This would place Tel Aviv in direct fire from rockets shot off the Judean Hills overlooking the center of Israel. Once Hamas backed by Iran took control of these areas, Israel could expect rockets to be launched whenever Iran felt it necessary into the heart of Tel Aviv where should they manage to destroy a single skyscraper Israel would be counting the dead in the thousands. Whenever such an attack takes place, we can assure you that the EU, UN and much the rest of the world would be demanding that Israel not be disproportional in their response. We discussed the irrationality of not using disproportional military response in this article. We know from experience that whatever the response by Israel to such an attack would be denounced by most of the world with the EU and UN leading the way. This is where Bibi’s arrangements with the EU will become a dire situation where Israel will have little response which the world will not condemn. How can we say this? Well, it has been the response even from those Israel considers to be friends every previous time Israel has found it necessary to respond to aggressive attacks by Arab forces. There is little if any reason to believe it would be otherwise.

Finally, after the coming September election, the situation will be that Likud will be unable to form a right centered coalition. This will be the result of the attacks which have already begun to come targeting the right-wing coalition of the Unified Right and the New Right with Ayelet Shaked at the top of their list. We will be witness to one Likud person after another denigrating this coalition of parties as not including every party. This is due to three right wing parties who have refused to join the larger coalition. These include Otzma Yehudit, Zehut and Noam, likely the furthest right party, all of which have thus far simply refused any reasonable offer in stead choosing to run independently despite all polls showing their not clearing threshold. The Likud attackers will continue to press the idea that the union which has been formed is not up to the expectations of Likud to consider them a rightful partner in any future government coalition. Why would the Likud be denigrating what many see as their natural allies? Because Bibi knows that these parties would never permit the programs and future which Bibi is hoping to form as his legacy. Yes, we are speaking of Bibi and his legacy building. The past history of Israeli politics has been centered on those who worked hardest to recognize the Arab claims to the lands which make up Israel. The Oslo Accords became the legacy for Simone Perez while the Gaza Withdrawal is the legacy for Ariel Sharon. Bibi Netanyahu has a legacy as being the longest serving Prime Minister, but he desires something far more difficult to be surpassed by a future Prime Minister. Establishing an Arab state, be it along the Green Line or the Security Barrier, would make for a legacy, whether evil or for good we would see, which could not be surpassed by any future Prime Minister. The attacks on the right-wing coalition will continue as should Bibi and the Likud Party succeed in diminishing the votes received by this right-wing coalition as well as destroying any hope that Otzma Yehudit, Zehut and Noam have of clearing threshold and gaining Likud a mere three or maybe four mandates will make forming a right-wing coalition impossible without gaining the support of a leftist party such as Yisroel Beiteinu. This will set up the situation where Bibi will simply claim that forming a right-wing coalition has become impossible, impossible because the Likud continues to attack their own seeking to wring every last vote possible for Likud. Bibi’s actual desire would be to form a coalition where the Likud was the sole party. Lacking such freedom, Bibi will likely form a Unity Government with Blue White. When General Gantz announced the founding of his party, a central part of Blue White, he stated that he had learned much during the Gaza withdrawal and believes he now knows how to better enact such withdrawals and can see areas where similar actions would work to bring about the two-state solution. Never mind that Mahmoud Abbas and the entirety of the PLO and PA leadership do not desire and never have desired making their own state, they simply want only one thing, the destruction of Israel and the removal of the Jews. This has been their desire since day one and it is not about to change. They desire the destruction of Israel after which they will leave the land for Egypt and Jordan to decide who gets which parts while the PLO continues on their path of murdering every Jew who currently resides in Israel. This is the explosive package which Bibi appears to desire to pin his legacy upon, that he was able to make the Arab state from within lands belonging to Israel under international law. The reason for the pressure under which Bibi is about to fold is due to the fact that unless Israel formally surrenders claim to any of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, these lands are legally belonging to Israel and the Arabs residing in the Shomron should be legally relocated within Jordan.

 

One final note about the attempts to form this Arab state. The PLO and PA recently announced that leaving the region will no longer be permitted. Any Arab who attempts to leave the regions controlled by the PLO and PA will be charged with the crime of desertion and prevented from leaving and face jail or potentially execution to make an example of anyone who attempts to seek a better life elsewhere. This was in reaction to rumors that President Trump intends to allow Arab Palestinian to relocate and find a better life in a new location with a monetary bonus to assist their relocation. This is part and parcel of the PLO and PA efforts since the onset of the Oslo Accords, namely to put in place impediments which are meant to make any settlement of the Arab Israeli conflict impossible for as long as any solution permits the continued existence of the Jewish State. When the PLO was formed in September of 1964, it made no claim to Gaza, which was occupied by Egypt, or of the Shomron, occupied by Jordan and renamed West Bank, and only claiming the remainder of the lands between the river and the sea, or simply put, all of Israel. The PLO and PA continue to have this as their aim, the complete replacement of Israel with some Arab rule followed by the eradication of all the Jews residing within. Bibi is about to grant them their first in what they see as the eradication of the Jewish State in stages. Once they have gained the Shomron and East Jerusalem, their next claim will be the Galilee and then the Negev. This would make Israel the Tel Aviv metropolitan area completely surrounded by Arabs ready to use terrorism to drive the Jews from the lands by any means necessary. This is the reality that Israel faces and should Bibi form a unity government with the Blue White Party, then Israelis would be best served in forcing new elections by whatever means are necessary.

Palestinian Leadership Declare War on Israel

 

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Fatah and the Palestinian Authority (PA) head-man and ruler of the Palestinian Arabs as well as being leader of the revolt and instigator for terrorism, Mahmoud Abbas has decided to wage war through surrogates throughout the world. Abbas has announced standing with French President Macron that the United States has disqualified itself from Mideast peace process. Apparently, Mahmoud Abbas is serious about this, for now, as he has also refused to answer Jared Kushner’s phone call and turned down the United States invitations for a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. But he has been a busy little beaver beyond refusing everything offered which might actually be capable of finding a solution. But Abbas does not desire a solution; he simply wants to destroy Israel by any means he can leverage. His current target is President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and future sight for the American Embassy. Abbas is drooling over the chances he might grab allowing him to hold the Temple Mount, Old City, Mount Olives Cemetery and all of Eastern Jerusalem where he can evict three entire neighborhoods for the fact that they are Jews, the unwanted, what he terms invaders despite the fact that two of these neighborhoods are Jews reclaiming what was their homes before the Jordanians performed their ethnic cleansing, something Abbas intends to repeat. Abbas hungers for all of East Jerusalem and every inch of the lands Jordan occupied for nineteen years. Abbas and the “PLO Executive Committee praised the “uprising of the Palestinian people” in response to the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and stressed the importance of further strengthening the “popular struggle by peaceful means.”

 

Salim Zanoun, the chairman of the Palestinian National Council (PNC), who also serves as chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Central Council, demanded on Sunday that the Central Council members, who are meeting in Ramallah to take a stand on the future of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and to reexamine the PLO’s recognition of Israel, renege on the Palestinian supposed recognition of Israel, something which despite Abbas constantly pretending, was never accepted. The reality is the Arab leadership will once again claim that Israel is a European colony with no connection to the Jews. Additionally they will restate a claim with a slight twist, that the Arabs were the Canaanites who originally built Jerusalem six thousand years ago. They also claim that the largest navy in the world at the end of World War II, the Netherlands Navy, to transport European Jews, the ones with no connection to Israel, to take the lands away from the Palestinian Arab founders of the area and, according to another older claim, the Palestinian Arabs invented the Canaanite language which was the first written language on Earth. You cannot make these claims up and outdo their wild declarations.

 

Abbas has gone to one of his favorite Jew and Israel hating entities, this time the European Union. He has demanded that they join him in declaring the State of Palestine as an independent nation with East Jerusalem as its capital and the June 4, 1967 lines. The date he is demanding is quite important as it is the day before Jordan joined Egypt and Syria, who had conjoined to become the United Arab Republic (UAR) who had invaded Israel intending to destroy Israel and force the Jews from the land one way or another the next morning of June 5, 1967 and the war concluded on June 10, 1967 after only six days, thus the name Six Day War. Instead of driving the Jews out of Israel, Israel had defeated the combined forces of three Arab nations, Egypt, Syria Jordan and Saudi Arabia with units from Lebanon and Iraq and additional assistance from Algeria, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, Sudan and Tunisia. Below is a map of Arab nations’ military moves which predicated the Six Day War as the threat encircled the Jewish State.

The threats became war when Israeli intelligence intercepted the attack orders and in a defensive move attacked the Egyptian Air Force while the majority of the planes were still on the ground. Israeli intelligence was so thorough that they left the decoy aircraft which were plywood replicas spread on the airfields to confuse any attacker as to which were the real aircraft so they would waste resources attacking the decoys. Israel struck only the real aircraft cementing their air superiority for the war. Later that fateful day in June of 1967 the Israeli Air Force defeated the Syrian Air Force and when the Jordanian Air Force attacked that afternoon they were met and routed by the Israeli Air Force. By the end of the war on June 10, 1967 when the United Nations, Soviet Union, United States, Britain and numerous other entities all demanded that the Israeli forces cease their advances and realizing the Arab forces had been routed and completely defeated and Israel stood ready to capture Cairo, Amman and Damascus if not prevented by the rest of the world, there was no other choice, Israel had to be prevented from capturing any Arab capital city. Israel was threatened by the world powers thus preventing Israel from declaring total victory and instead settling for territorial gains and without capture of any Arab capitals. Below are two maps showing the starting positions and resulting territories Israel captured or liberated (Judea and Samaria were occupied by Jordan renamed West Bank) during the Six Day War.

 

Six Day War Beginning and Resulting Positions from June 5, 1967 to June 10, 1967

Six Day War Beginning and Resulting Positions from June 5, 1967 to June 10, 1967

 

So, now we understand Abbas and his inspiration for choosing June 4, 1967, as he desires a reset to the starting points from the Six Day War. Egypt already made peace and all of the Sinai Peninsula was returned by Israel and Egypt relinquished all claims to Gaza which was later gifted to the Palestinian Authority in August and September of 2005, and then taken over in a coup by Hamas in 2007. This also would return the highlands overlooking the densely populated and industrialized lands within Israel allowing for direct firing of rockets into Tel Aviv and surrounding areas. Abbas is not relying solely on the European Union as he has a great idea for using the United Nations. He desires for the United Nations convening of an international conference with full powers to resolve all the outstanding issues and all final status issues. He insists that this United Nations conference be empowered to set the final borders of the Palestinian State along the June 4, 1967 lines, the 1949 Armistice Lines or the Green Line, all names for what Israeli Abba Eban; Israeli diplomat, politician and scholar, who referred to the pre Six Day War lines as Israel’s “Auschwitz borders.” The reasoning becomes evident in the two pictures below, one before Israeli retreat back to the June 4, 1967 lines and the lower one within days if not minutes after Israel is forced back behind the Green Line, the Auschwitz borders.” That is why Israel can never accept such a solution and even should the entire world demand Israel fold and accede to Mahmoud Abbas and his eternal demands, the only result would be an inevitable war as even one attack would be intolerable.

 

Tel Aviv Now Before Green Line Peace and Tel Aviv the Day After Green Line Peace

Abbas is attempting to collect every adversary of Israel’s continued existence calling on the United Nations and European Union to join him in declaring the maximum potential borders as reality including forcing all the Israeli residents from their Judea and Samaria communities, East Jerusalem and even areas of Western Jerusalem which would become no-man’s land just as it was when Jordanian snipers would randomly shoot any Israeli which came within their scope sights. Not only would parts of Jerusalem become areas where one’s life would be endangered just traversing, but also major Israeli roadways and even Ben Gurion Airport (see images below). For people who regularly use Trans-Israel Highway Route 6 daily, they would be required to find an alternate route using secondary roads and finding a longer and more time consuming route to and from work, family, friends or simply to go to another area of Israel as simply by constructing what appears to be a residence in order to use the roof to place a sniper making this section of the Trans-Israel Highway Route 6 completely unusable unless encased in a rocket and bullet proof encapsulation. A person with a MANPAD standing on the grounds overlooking Ben Gurion Airport they could blow any aircraft landing or taking off right out of the sky. These are further examples why Israel would not be able to permit a Palestinian State to have the June 4, 1967 borders demanded by Mahmoud Abbas, and he is totally aware of this which is why his demands.

Mahmoud Abbas can get the European Union, United Nations and any other group, organization or grouping of allied nations to declare whatever borders or solution he can arrange, no such declaration will have any effect on the current situation and will most definitely establish any real borders which he is chasing so eagerly. The only place that Mahmoud Abbas can go and readily arrange to have borders, peace and an actual state is to meet with Israel. Only Israel is capable of making an agreement which would be enforceable. Not the United Nations and all its various institutions, not the European Union or any of its members, not Russia, China or the United States and not the Arab League, Organization of Islamic Cooperation or the entirety of Islam and the force of Allah can force a solution. If Mahmoud Abbas truly desires peace and actually wants a real nation then instead of refusing every offer and grandstanding collecting condemnations of Israel, United Nations statements which are completely unenforceable or other meaningless denunciations of the situation, then he simply need to sit down with the Israelis and not demand that Israel get nothing and he gets his entire wish list. But being reasonable or even settling for anything which does not instantly destroy Israel would be not making good on his endless promises to destroy Israel and that is why he will never accept peace as he believes that if the Arab press this long enough the world will tire of the entire affair and destroy Israel just to be rid of the conflict. We will not ruin it by providing a spoiler, as that exact situation was already predicted and the result of the ensuing conflict was given in the Bible. The world should hope it never comes to that, as the end is less than pretty.

Imagine Britain Making Peace with ISIS

 

Imagine Britain Making Peace with ISIS or Europe Making Peace with the Refugees
and then Answer why Israel Need Sacrifice for Arabs Against the Promises of the World?

Imagine if the United Nations, European Union, United States, Russia, China and many European nations gathered with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Islamic State (ISIS) Leader Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi invited in order to reach an agreement ending the differences between them and ending the terror such as the suicide bombing at Manchester this week which murdered over twenty youths and injured more than fifty more. Assuming that all the Islamic State is actually interested in is the Southwestern Shores with South London as their Capital City. The Southwestern Shores includes Southwest and Southeast England, West Midlands, and Wales (see map below). Currently the Islamic areas have been limited to cantons separated from one another leading to many being left under governance which has no relevance to their needs and way of life. The demand for the unification of these areas for Islamic rule separated from the normative British rule of law allowing for Sharia in these areas. This will require some transfer of populations and these Islamic areas should be free of all others and the Muslims will all be required to relocate within their newly found state. The British should be old hat at such measures and executing such a transfer after managing something very similar when establishing the nation of Pakistan for the Muslims separated from India as a means of settling the violence between the different religions and meeting the Muslim demands for their own region, their own nation. Such a settlement would allow for two countries for two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. The terrorism and fighting must be addressed and ended once and for all. The attacks like the bombing in Manchester are a cry by an oppressed minority facing an Apartheid like treatment by an oppressive regime in which they have little chance of having their needs addressed. The tearing apart of the two societies must be brought to an end and an equitable settlement reached. These attacks are but an expression by the Islamic minority simply crying for their own area in which they can rule themselves. The numerous attacks do not need to be listed, but still some should be remembered such as the London Underground and Bus Bombing of July 7, 2005; the Glasgow International Airport attack of June 30, 2007; the Beheading of British Soldier Lee Rigby of May 22, 2013 and the recent Westminster Bridge with Palace of Westminster’s Houses of Parliament Entrance vehicle ramming and stabbing attacks which happened recently on March 22, 2017 just to list some of the most horrifically memorable. Time has come to address the base problems, which are the root causes for these attacks, and a fair and equitable solution must be reached. British Prime Minister Theresa May and Islamic State (ISIS) Leader Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi must meet face-to-face and discuss their differences and as a signal that the British are truly interested in making peace, all Islamic fighters held in British prisons should be released such that when peace has been reached, there will be no outstanding issues and this will be a signal of the British desire for peace and an equal settlement for both peoples. Of course al-Baghdadi would continue to claim he intends on conquering the world, which would include all of Britain.

Yes, this is as ridiculous as requesting that the European union give the refugees their own nation consisting of Greece and surrounding areas in the Balkans and Southeastern Europe for the influx of refugees to settle where they can rule themselves and the remainder of Europe for the remaining Europeans (see map below). This solution leaves many major European nations such as Poland, Germany, Spain, France and the Scandinavian nations as European continuity remaining intact such that the European Union can retain the cross border integrity. This also will leave a separation between the European and their culture and the Islamic culture of the refugees. There should be measures taken where longtime European Muslims who desire remaining as Europeans to be able to retain their standing. This will permit separate continental areas living side-by-side in peace and security. This would just as ludicrous as the suggestion above for the British Isles but somehow it is permissible and even considered preferable for Israel to surrender a fairly large size approaching one quarter of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea which was promised to Israel when Transjordan was given to the Arab population to be ruled by the Hashemite family. This agreed upon compromise enabled the British to meet their promise to the Arab leaders made during World War I where they promised to give both sons of Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud their own kingdoms. This resulted with King Faisal to rule in Iraq and King Abdullah I to rule in Jordan meeting the British promise to the Arabs. To meet their promise to the Zionists the British Crown, contrary to much of their activities ever since, was that all lands west of the Jordan River were to be protected and given solely to the Zionists for the establish of a Jewish State. Yes, dividing up the British Isles would lead to a war where the might of the British Crown would be brought to bear against those demanding their surrender of half of London and the southwest of the British Isles. The same goes for the European union if they were to be demanded by the world to surrender the southeast of the European continent and transfer the populations from these nations into other nations around the remainder of the European Union would result in a war as well. Yet it is exactly these nations who are all but leading the demands for Israel to surrender nearly one forth of their lands to an Arab State which would be sworn to Israeli destruction. Making matters worse, the lands that Israel is being demanded to surrender would place this hostile nation standing on the highlands overlooking the central and densely industrialized and holding most of the residential occupancy of the Israeli population. Almost all of Israeli power production and almost all of their water treatment along with the vast majority of its industrial employment and production and lastly a number of nuclear power plants and also overlooking the Dimona nuclear research center and numerous colleges, schools and preschools that service the majority of the population. But we know the reason and it is one that most refuse to admit, so let us discuss this further.

 

European Union Made Refugee Friendly While Retaining European Continuity

European Union Made Refugee Friendly While Retaining European Continuity

 

Let us look at Israel and ask what people think immediately when you say Israel. The answer is obvious, the Jews. Israel is the Jewish State, right? Well, in all honestly, not totally. The Jews do make up 75% of the population, with Muslims making up 19.5% of the population, with Christians making up almost 2% of the population, with Druze making up 1.5% of the population and finally the remainder consisting of Hindus, Buddhists, Baha’I and others making up almost 4% of the population. Another misunderstanding is that Israel is made up mostly of Jews from Russian and European nations plus the Anglosphere. The truth is that close to half of the Israeli Jews derive from the Middle East and North Africa and the Islamic world which largely either evicted their Jews directly or by making laws targeting the Jews making their lives so difficult that they were basically forced from their homes. This is a very different picture than what is portrayed by the anti-Israel forces and even far too many of Israel’s friends. Israel does not even appear to be a European colony that is one of the first truths that visitors realize upon arrival. They witness people of every nationality including Ethiopian and Indian Jews, also Jews from Arab lands and from North Africa and the expected Russian and European ethnicity. They witness couples with children and many carriages being pushed by fathers almost as often seen as mothers. Often these strollers are accompanied by additional children and you will see rolling playpens when parent have more young children as this way they can bring toys and move more freely. For those visitors coming from Europe or the United States these numbers of children are reminiscent of their youth when they were children if they are baby boomers. This is a difference than currently in Europe, Russia and the United States where the numbers of children are below replacement rates while the rate in Israel is far healthier and above replacement rate providing a growing population. The fact that Israel is a nation which has a growing population is another reason that Israel can make arguments why she requires all the lands promised by the League of Nations and presumably re-promised by the United Nations. The world appears to have forgotten that the area of Israel they demand to give to the Arabs was originally stolen by Jordan in the 1948 War started by the Arabs in an attempt to destroy the newly formed nation of Israel and they declared their genocidal intent repeatedly for years ahead of the May 15, 1948 declaration of the establishment of Israel. They disregard that many of these Arabs are Jordanians which Jordan illegally forced to relocate and take lands and often houses which had belonged to Jews which they forced from their homes threatening to murder them if they refused to be relocated inside the remainder of Israel. Why is it that the promises given during the making of the Mandates, the establishment guarantees of the British, the League of Nations, the United States, the signatories of the Treaty of Sèvres and the writers and signatories of the United Nations and its Charter which includes their taking on the responsibilities from the League of Nations and the Mandate System, are so temporary; but demands on Israel are due immediately.

 

All the demands that Israel always must return all lands they gain after fighting a defensive war despite the rules of war under International Law are unique as no other nation is expected to act thusly except the United States who do so of their own volition. Israel is almost, if not, required by the world to return lands taken in defensive war and in this case to give away lands liberated in a defensive war that were stolen after Jordan was amongst the numerous nations which attacked Israel when she came into existence on May 15, 1948. Israel has returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula twice to Egypt, after their response to the blockade when Egypt cut off their access to the Red Sea in 1956 and again in response to the same action by Egypt plus the Egyptian forces massed on the Israeli southern border and Syrian forces along the north in 1967. The liberation of Judea and Samaria came when Jordan joined the Six Day War during the second day of the war after Israel implored them to remain neutral. Still, the world claims that Israel illegally holds Judea and Samaria ignoring the fact that Jordan illegally held it until Israel liberated, that is liberated, these lands in 1967. Why all of this enmity? If we are to claim it comes from the long history of anti-Semitism, then people roll their eyes and sigh, “Please,” dripping with all the sarcasm and impatience pleading that we not go there. Why such a drastic reaction? The reason is the knowledge that this is true and they do not desire accepting this truth and accepting reality which would give the Israeli arguments more weight. The entire game is do not give Israel an inch of credibility because they will take advantage of any credibility and then you know what will come of that. Our answer is, “No, we do not know what will come of such, tell us.” People then back away from the discussion getting defensive asking, what do we mean by questioning them. They pretend we are claiming they are being evil or deceitful. They know why they are being defensive and so do we but it really does not matter.

 

Mahmoud Abbas will save Israel as he will not accept any deal no matter how wonderful those managing the next peace process, be they for Trump, the United Nations, the European Union, Martians, the Greys or whatever group be they from Earth or from the stars. Abbas will very simply continue demanding more and more until the entire peace process is stretched into the sham it really has become. Even if President Trump finds some means of imposing an agreement on the Palestinian Arabs despite themselves, they will return to terrorism just as they have promised time after time. Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders from the Palestinian Authority and Fatah have all stated that the fight for the liberation of Palestine, all of Palestine will continue even after they make any agreement or peace with Israel. Their fight for the liberation of their lands will continue until every Jews has been driven from their lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. This has been their promise and they are the moderates, actually are. Hamas not only demands that all the lands be liberated, the Jews residing there killed and then every Jew on the planet murdered, they are the ones making Abbas a moderate. So, Abbas is a moderate because he does not desire killing Jews after wiping them out in Israel, that is really not that helpful folks. The fact that the world could not care less that the Arabs’ desire is to murder every Jew in Israel is another troubling fact. Their demands that Israel make concessions every time a new peace process starts simply because they realize and know that unless Abbas gains something he will not meet. They feel for their own pride and false name making they must force this meet despite knowing that Abbas will never make peace because their names must be added to those who managed to hold a meeting and get a picture of Abbas (or Arafat before him) and some Israeli Prime Minister shaking hand with them smiling behind them so they can be declared good peacemakers. Add in an Israeli Prime Minister, and we have had many, who simply adore having their names spoken in Europe and Washington with the title of good Jew attached making these sacrifices despite the harm it does to the Israeli people does not help. Eventually Israel will have nothing left to give, and we are about there, and then the Arabs will claim they have no other choice as the Israelis are not surrendering fast enough and they will start the next Arab-Israeli war. If Israel survives and has any lands that the world can demand they give away, we will start this whole process over from scratch. Eventually the Israeli people will have had enough and then the real solution will come and Israel will demand all that is legally hers. We do not want more and eventually will not accept less. Whether we gain it peacefully or forcefully is up to the leaders of the world but they are too interested in pleasing their Arab friends and their oil sheikhs and that is really a pity. The eventual finality of this masquerade is known to anyone with any knowledge of history, especially ancient history, and still they will all act surprised when this eventuality comes to fruition.
