Anti-Semitism Enzyme Injected to Overwhelm the Left

 

The Left believes itself immune from the infection of anti-Semitism claiming the alt-right, all those not believing as the chosen of the Progressive movement, are the only anti-Semites in existence. Their targets are the White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazis and others who simply hate everyone not like-minded which they believe includes all Jews. They find evidence such as the poster pictured below which calls for white people to join with these Nazis at the Daily Stormer which is a hate site. This, they claim, is the real threat the Jews face, not the leftists and their new friends in the Islamic world. They claim anyone purporting that Muslims are enemies of the Jews and Israel merely do not understand the problems in Israel and that, after all, “Islam is the religion of peace,” as they say over and over. They point to the numbers of Jews who fill their ranks as the vast majority of American Jews, the Reform and Conservative movements as well as the New or Open Orthodox, a group of activist leftist Jews who desire to force Israel to accept their interpretations of a new Judaism which they wish to define with a definition which is more leftist than Jewish. But they accept these Jews so they cannot be anti-Semitic. Whatever you do, do not ask them about the very religious Traditional Orthodox Jews as the leftists have a great animosity for traditional Jews as well as Christians. To these leftists, all religion is simply superstition and the only truth in the world is their leftist agendas.

They will tell you that all anti-Semitism exists solely on the right and the media will often agree with this definition. They will claim that their problem is not with the Jewish People; their problem is with the policies of Israel and especially with those of Prime Minister Netanyahu. This was so well exemplified by the efforts made by President Bill Clinton and again later by President Obama to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu when he was running for election once each. President Clinton succeeded in getting Netanyahu defeated and all of a sudden, with a leftist government in power in Israel, the Democrats and the American left were all enamored with Israel. As soon as the Likud Party was reelected to power, then the love affair was over. Simply put, the American Left is only happy when the Israeli left is in power and when Israeli right and religious parties take power the American left goes ballistic, just as they have since President Trump was elected only not quite as insane. It is easy to understand, they believe that the only people who are groomed and destined to run the world are they and their fellow travelers. The left are the sole people who have the means of making the world into a wonderful place and when anybody else wins the election it is a scourge to be fought against with everything that the left can bring including revolution. There are groups such as Anti-Fa (anti-Fascist), Black Lives Matter (BLM), The Revolution, ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), CODEPINK, End the Occupation Now, and numerous smaller groups plus the leftist media backing which also provides these groups political cover by under reporting their divisive actions and rhetoric and through portrayals which show them in an air-brushed image.

 

The media is complicit in their reporting which gives full support to the left progressive and its agenda while giving critical coverage to those not on the left doing everything even to include inventing stories. This has been one of the items which were exposed by President Trump and which has severely damaged the remaining credibility of much of the media. In many ways, they have only themselves to blame. Their refusal to recognize the real anti-Semitism residing in their own camp is, at times, astonishing. When this anti-Semitic flier was found on the campus at the University of Illinois at Chicago, initially it was denied until numbers of them were produced and research was done by the Forward and Alan Dershowitz providing proof of the poster and its existence (see below). This is normal and is not restricted to posters but also to the lack of covering the near revolts and violence exhibited when conservative speakers are invited to speak at many Universities and the leftists actions either get the event cancelled, moved to a place well off the campus thus making it near impossible for students to attend, to shouting down speakers refusing to permit them to be heard. There have also been reports linking Anti-Fa and anti-Semitism, as was also found with Occupy Wall Street, and the left’s preoccupation with anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli activities such as the Campus events including BDS, Israel Apartheid Week, Palestinian Die-Ins and other demonstrations against Israel. Many of these demonstrations expanded from being anti-Israel to anti-Jew and all too often resulted in violence against Jews on these campuses.

The problem is that Israel is simply the new Jew to be chosen for violation and destruction and anti-Zionism as the key to these efforts. The new anti-Semite will claim they are just against Israeli policies or they are not against Jews, just Zionists. Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism unless one is against every mono-cultural or mono-ethnic nation which would include but not limited to being against Japan, China, both Koreas, India, twenty-one Arab nations, France, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Russia and more. But the anti-Zionists are not against any of these monolithic nations, just the Jewish one, which is the definition of anti-Semitism. One will need to wait and see how these groups react to Kurdish calls for having their own independent nations and the Basque People or the Catalonian Movements in Spain, the Assyrians or the Zoroastrian movement in Iran or the Tibetan people who wish for a free Tibet which was conquered by China during 1951. For reasons which the progressive left would like us to believe has nothing to do with anti-Semitism, the only group which is reviled and protested has been those supporting Israel and Zionism.

There will likely be produced groups which will start to disparage the Kurds as Arab oil money and Islamic supremacy start to denigrate the Kurds should they start to move towards independence. The Arab oil wealth combined with their stranglehold on Europe and affiliations with the Progressive left and the far left through their anti-Israel campaigns will utilize their connections to smear any effort by the Kurds for independence since the Kurds, despite being Islamic, are not the right form of Islam. The Shia will hate them because they are not Shiite Muslims and the Sunni Muslims will deny their independence on the basis despite their being Sunni as well simply because they are not Arab. There is a lesson to be learned in the fight with the Kurds by the other Sunnis and the hate for Iran by many Sunni as part of the great Shia-Sunni divide in Islam, the result is that the purest form of Islam which is to be desired is for there to be all Arab Sunni Muslims and once that purity is met, then comes deciding which Imam is the divine choice of the Prophet, and after that, who knows what the fight will be about or will this result that in the end there can be only one. The problem is all these protests claim that there must be a winner, a single surviving winner, to which we have an answer to those who claim that in the end there can be only one.

Hamas-Fatah Union Job Finished

 

The Union between Fatah and Hamas we reported on in the first article of our three part report on the situation in Gaza, Judea, Samaria and concerning Israel and beyond. Their intent was to make and peace proposal impossible to implement, as all efforts were formed targeting Judea and Samaria and the Palestinian Authority (PA) and never to include Gaza or Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The main item which Fatah and the PA wanted to gain was a simple quote saying there could be no peace as long as Hamas rejects Israel and has the destruction of Israel and the death of all Jews as their main goals. Well, they have their quote from which they will pluck the juiciest part to use to further their own goals. The magic phrase came from Prime Minister Netanyahu when he wrote on his Facebook page following the end of the Simchat Torah holiday, “Reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas makes peace much harder to achieve.” Prime Minister Netanyahu later added, “Reconciling with mass-murderers is part of the problem, not part of the solution. Say yes to peace and no to joining hands with Hamas.”

Just wait for it and sooner or later we will hear from Mahmoud Abbas misquoting Prime Minister Netanyahu by taking parts of his Facebook statements such as claiming that Netanyahu says, “peace much harder to achieve.” Then Abbas will add to the quote with something misleading such as “Israel” adding and according to the Prime Minister, “is part of the problem, not part of the solution.” The Palestinian leadership has used partial quotes before to paint Israel as the problem while Mahmoud Abbas refused every opportunity for peace demanding that the only true peace includes the eradication of the Jewish State and that the entirety of the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea be cleansed of the Jews. When the leaders of Fatah, the PLO, and the PA speak to their people, they sound exactly the same as Hamas states. They tell them how they will drive the Jews into the Sea or other similar messages denoting the eradication of Israel as it now exists. There are two storylines they tell. The first is the simple war where Israel is defeated and the Jews made to submit or die. Another is they receive their peace treaty allowing for five to eight or even ten million Arab refugees to be resettled inside Israel as full citizens and demand an immediate election where they will vote to join the PA and the Jews will be subjugated. You may have noticed that they both have the same ending. The supposed reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah will also now come to a bitter end as they agree to disagree on just about everything except the death of Israel and the Jews.

 

The truth of the matter is the leadership of the PA, Fatah, PLO, Hamas et. al. are counting on the world’s basic historic anti-Semitism, especially European anti-Semitism and United Nations with all its departments, NGOs and related agencies, to erode and sap the will of the Jews and through demanding concessions after concession to whittle Israel to the point that she become indefensible and then with the rest of the Arab world or with Iran and Hezballah, they will have a final war where Israel can be eliminated. The Arab world has assisted greatly by financing propaganda such as the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction), International Solidarity Movement (ISM), Stand With Us and numerous other organizations all done in concert with far leftist groups such as Jewish Voices of Peace (JVP), New Israel Fund, and other such groups whose main efforts is to drive a wedge between American Jews and Israel. This effort to drive Israel and American Jews apart has, very sadly, started to pay dividends as it has managed to even split the campus group Hillel such that numerous Hillel houses on far left leaning campuses have renamed themselves as Open Hillel, just like Open Orthodoxy has done with Orthodox Judaism, they have both turned against their origins and joined the other side and then demanded that their former origins now accept their rules and forfeit their basic origins and beliefs. The Open Hillel takes the post-Zionist viewpoint which claims that Zionism is a form of imperialism and colonialism and thus a form of racist imperialism and oppression. They are leading Jewish college students away from supporting Israel to actively opposing Israel.

This problem also exists in the Democrat Party except for some of the older representatives and the minority of Jews in power with the Party. Much of the farther leftists who have risen to be the future power within the Democrat Party are virulently anti-Israel and many also anti-Semitic. This was evidenced in 2012 when the Democrat Party floor voted to include G0d and place Jerusalem as the Israeli capital was an indecisive vote but definitely not the two-thirds required for placing it on the platform. They passed it anyways. Further, the recent Democrat Party election for chairman between Tom Perez and Keith Ellison was excessively close such that Perez won in the second vote, after missing out by just one vote in the first round of voting so they gave as a consolation the position as Deputy Chairman to Keith Ellison. Representative Ellison was amongst those who voted against resupply to Israel for their Iron Dome anti-missile systems, a purely defensive weapon which was preventing Hamas rockets from killing Israeli citizens. That is just one example of Representative Ellison’s disdain, or should we call it what it is, hatred for Israel and Jews. Things have been changing in the body politic in the United States and the support for Israel. The main party supporting Israel, as it is no longer a bipartisan supported item, has gone over to the Republicans and the major support from the public is no longer with the Jews as even if every Jew were a supporter of Israel, their two percent of the population cannot even dream of competing with the Evangelical Christians with their consisting of one-fourth of the population and strongly conservative supporting the Republican. The truth behind the United States support for Israel does not come from the Jews, though they may often be the loudest, but from the Evangelical Christians who are more serene, calm and sedate but just as vehemently strong in support of Israel as the most Zionist Jew.

If the World Was Serious About Preventing an Iran War

 

The actions over the past few weeks have once again shown the lack of any shred of serious concern over preventing Iran taking control of the Middle East and the oil resources held there. Say what you want about how Saudi Arabia can stand against Iran, that is a pipe dream and everybody knows that. The only hope the Saudi military would have against Iran would be if they held a parade contest and even then, Iran puts on a pretty good imitation of the old Soviet Union style of parade, the Saudis just look impressive in their fancy dress uniforms. The Saudis even with Israel assistance would still end up losing the oil fields as the Israeli sphere of operability has limitations which is why Israel is considered vulnerable to Iranian nuclear threats. Obviously, many of the signs that the world really was, the United States in particularly, interested in preventing a world war started due to Iranian threats well beyond simply the Middle East would be done secretively, there are still some steps which would necessarily be committed in plain sight. The first would be some passive verbal support for the response of the Kurdish referendum praising their desire to be granted the nation they had been promised by the allied victors of World War I.

 

Please do understand that much of the problems in the Middle East stem directly from the results imposed after World War I and much of that blame lies with two men whose names are on the very treaty behind these problems, the Sykes-Picot Agreement. British diplomat Mark Sykes and a French counterpart, François Georges-Picot, with some small input and suggestions from Russia and the complete hands-off support of the United States trying to stay above the fray which adds their name to the perfidy, drew the lines of control for much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) dividing the lands into areas of control with no regard for tribal and ethnic regions. This action was intentional as they were attempting to assure themselves that the Middle East would never become a major power in the world. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iran were the three places which were not affected as they remained as they were or were beyond the scope of the Allied powers. The Allies performed a similar arrangement when dividing up the Austria-Hungarian Empire just as they did the Ottoman Empire. The British and French went a step or two further by making the chance for an opportunity for the Jews and the Kurds to gain independence and have the nation that each was promised all but impossible, and undefendable if either managed to gain their necessary foothold. To restrict the Jews, this was accomplished by having the British all but strangle their ability to make Aliya to the Holy Lands; and to the Kurds, they divided their populations between Iraq, Syria and Turkey leaving a fourth in Iran. If these areas had been permitted the Kurdish People, there is a good chance that Kurdistan would have a democratic form of governance and would be providing a perfect staging area for much of the problems over the past century in the Middle East. They also would likely have been an inspiration to the peoples of their neighboring nations to pursue a more liberal and democratic path after World War II, but that would have empowered the Middle East; and the British and French were seeking anything but such an occurrence.

 

Still, it is not yet too late to mend long ago made mistakes and grant things promised in bad faith. If only the advisors from the United States State Department were not infected with an anti-democratic bend and steeped in the sour soil of Arab oil and Islamic supremacy. The State Department is neutral as it cares not which form of Islam, Shiite or Sunni, wins, just as long as there is an Islamic Arab force with which to try and impose their view of a just world. Their current favors bow to Iran thanks to the previous eight years of having their positions sold to the Iranians first. Still, there is the beating of a Saudi Arabian old heart and a soft spot for Egypt and the Palestinians and a culture steeped on anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and thus anti-Semitism. For the Department of State, the only good Jew is one completely devoted to the State, the Democrat Party and completely ignorant in the Constitution, Bill of Rights and associated ideals of freedom. The State Department is probably the most anti-Trump area in the entirety of the government and the most intractable as well. Trump gave the job of Secretary of State to an old friend and we hope they have an understanding that as Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson is supposed to talk the talk and walk the walk completely in agreement with the garbage spouted by the State Department “deep state” and add his own Saudi Arabian twist as this is expected from one who spent their life being entertained, wined and dined by the Saudi Royals. Secretary Tillerson was likely told not to get upset if it appeared he was being ignored often, his job was to engage the “deep state” people in the State Department and make it appear they had a voice and were being effective while Trump went his own way. That would be the perfect situation of management control and if such is the case; it will be studied in business and political science classes in the future.

 

We have already heard how the State Department wants the Kurds to just shut their mouths, sit down and allow the adults to trample them into the dust of the Middle East. Thus far, the only nation to support the Kurdish referendum was Israel. Israel also has strong and good relations with the Syrian faction of the Kurds. The Kurds were the fighters who stopped ISIS, back when Islamic State was ISIS, in the battle for Kobane where the Kurds had stopped the ISIS advance and were the first to do so and then, with some United States air support, the Kurds turned the tide and then cleared Kobane of ISIS presence and pushed them southward, again with marginal American air support. This was the story in Syria which has one last piece in the puzzle, when the Syrian Kurds turned the tide; they received some assistance from the Iraqi Kurds which quickened their push. Meanwhile, in Iraq, the Kurdish Peshmerga Militias stopped the spread of the Islamic State in two crucial battles in Kirkuk and Erbil turning them back and, in a long and brutal series of assaults; the Kurds opened the route into Mosul and established a foothold in this crucial city. With Peshmerga Kurdish assistance, the Iraqi Army with America air support, tactical planning, artillery support, and America Special Forces implanted within and with an undisclosed number of American troops taking the south flank and the Kurdish Peshmerga taking the north flank, the Iraqi Army, according to all media reports, took Mosul in a valiant effort showing great heroism and resourcefulness in a brutal fight of uncommon ferocity lasting almost three days. The Kurdish Peshmerga Militias then spent the next two weeks clearing the remainder of Mosul in door-to-door fighting mostly in the northern regions. The absolute bravery and valor of the Iraqi Army is most definitely unquestioned, or so the media tells. There was a reason that the State Department and the Pentagon insisted that the Iraqi Army be credited with taking Mosul, and now for the revelation.

 

The crux of the situation is that around Mosul are numerous critical items. There is the Mosul Dam and hydroelectric generation facility. The dam is in need of upgrading and desperately in need of repair which it will hopefully receive before it breaks. This would be best handled by some governance which actually cares about the people. Then there are the Mosul oil fields which produce the second greatest amount of oil in Iraq. Finally, Mosul is a central point where the majority of roads meet and thus makes it the Bastogne of the Iraqi battlefield. In Bastogne, Colonel McAuliffe commanding the 101st Airborne Division was surrounded by German armor who pounded the city for twenty-four hours plus. When offered to surrender and save his troops, the Colonel answered “Nuts!” Nuts is what the United States and the Kurds are if they permit Iran and Iraq to retain control over the Mosul area. This was a Kurdish area which Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein attempted to denude it of its Kurdish population and move Sunni Arabs into the former Kurdish homes. The Kurds have permitted their people to return to their homes with their intent on retaining Mosul. The West and the World would sleep a lot sounder with Mosul firmly in Kurdish hands. For this and a myriad of other reasons, the United States would be best served to ignore the State Department and their claim that in the name of peace, Iran, through Iraq, should be permitted their claim on Mosul and the Kurds denied such lands or any lands and be left split between four nations, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey to live under the cruel rule of their oppressors. The State Department gives the Kurdish the same treatment as they have the Jews, believing them both to be merely capricious little children too ignorant or unintelligent to know what is best for them.

 

The reality, as usual, is the complete opposite of the State Department advice. The Kurds could and would be an ally to the forces of freedom, liberty, capitalism and democratic rule. They would also be a friend of Israel, which we admit does cloud our vision, but such a clouded vision is still a far bit clearer than those at the State Department. The next path at present would be to make plans for the recognition of a Greater Kurdistan (map below). That would include northeastern Syria, Northern Iraq reaching southward to include the Mosul areas, northwestern Iran and parts of southern Turkey. In order to make such a nation possible, the United States would need to provide the basic aircraft for the Kurds to have their own airborne protection. The training should be provided by either the United States, Israel or both, for the pilots to fly these aircraft with the most capable given actual air defense dogfighting training. They would need armored vehicles which some might be provided by Israel and the rest by the United States as well as some training in their use and how to defend them against anti-armor weapons and how to implement them into a combat scenario. Finally, imbedding some Special Forces trainers initially plus air assistance as the initial founding of Kurdistan, no matter the promises or treaties involved, will result in a combined assault of the nascent nations by at the least four and as many as twelve Arab, Turkish and Iranian armies attempting to drive them into the ground, there is no sea this time, and murder every single Kurdish person they can find. The reason that all the Kurdish areas must be included in the founding of Kurdistan is because any left outside of the country will be slaughtered by their own countrymen as an example to the Kurds as to what will happen to them if they lose their war to keep their nation. Israel can attest to the fury that will be shown any Kurdish nation once founded, and it matters not when such may occur, the vile spite which will be shown as violence is unfurled against the Kurdish People wherever they may be found, will be equal to the fury thrown against Israel and which still fills many Arab and Islamic hearts towards Israel and the Jews. With American and Israeli assistance, this idea of a real and honest Kurdistan which will be free, democratic in nature, and with a vibrant economy can and will be established. Should Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan become enraged and threaten to quit NATO, that would simply be one more advantage of our proposal, one that should be gladly and immediately accepted.

Additional advantages of establishing the promised Kurdish nation is it would provide Israel with an emergency airbase which would place some needed cooling on the Iranian eagerness to destroy Israel. The Kurds would necessarily be allied with Israel and the West as the Arab world and Arab League would treat them as a pariah and constantly be a threat to their survival. A Kurdish State would also work to keep a check on Turkey and perhaps the Sunni Muslims in Iraq might seek the Kurdish protection from their Shia dominated government in Iraq, though perhaps protecting the Sunni in Iraq might be a stretch. In the end, a Kurdish nation in the heart of the Middle East with democratic governance and a capitalist economy and the standard of living which such provides, they would be an example of what each of these Arab states could be with a government which serves the people instead of enslaves the people. Kurdistan could be the beginning of the reformation which so many have written about but none have shown any means by which such could occur. Those who have claimed that an effective example would be Israel missed the mark as Israelis are seen as outsiders, intruders and anything but what the Arabs should emulate. The Kurds are Sunni Muslims, not Jews, nor Catholics, not Buddhists but real and longstanding followers of Islam and amongst those who surrendered to Allah and they could show that surrender to Allah and following Islam does not mean one must live off the crumbs doled by a dictator but that one can be modern and enjoy the spoils of life while still being good and practicing Muslims. That might just be the greatest prize which might come from Kurdistan, and that could change the world.
