It is NOT About Land President Trump

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the community of Squirrel Hill and all of Pittsburgh after the horrific Synagogue shootings. Tomorrow we will give our reactions after we are able to digest this tragedy and all its ramifications. May Hashem soothe the bereaved and keep all in His loving care.

 

President Trump is attempting a make a Middle East peace plan, the so-called “Deal of the Century,” in the same way he would negotiate a deal along the Jersey shore. He wants to have each side take lands and agree on borders no matter which elements he is required to include. He tried the Palestinian Authority (PA) and they balked immediately and were quite abusive in their rejection. He tried Jordan and initially got the same response though more measured and polite. He has possibly decided that bribing Jordan will do the trick, he is wrong. Mr. President, we do not know any easier way to put this, this is not about land, this is about Jews. The Arabs made this so very clear in their little tête-à-tête which they held the September after their humiliating defeat in the Six Day War in 1967. They came out with what is known as the Khartoum Resolution and had the infamous ‘Three No’s’, which are “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The Arab League expelled Egypt for a period after Anwar Sadat signed the Egypt-Israel peace agreement only permitting them back in as Egypt was then one of the more powerful Arab nations and still might be. The entire confrontation comes down to a few very simple and easy points to understand. First is that the region which is Israel had been Islamic territory for hundreds of years under the Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire and as such must never be permitted to fall into the hands of any others. This is a Quranic dictum. The Muslims also claim that most of Spain is actually called Andalusia and is also Islamic lands which they are anxious to retake under their control. One has to wonder if they also wish to sit at the Gates of Vienna once more as twice was not sufficient. This is a religious war over which religion is supreme, Judaism or Islam. Further, Jerusalem being the third holiest city in Islam is a recent development and only came about after the Jews took the entirety of the city in the Six Day War. There have been other third holiest cities in Islam of which probably the two most famous are Damascus and Constantinople. The third holiest city in Islam is reserved for the next city in importance which the Muslim hopes to conquer or control through any means necessary. The main point of any negotiation could not care where any lines are drawn and what the name of each tract of land assumes, it is about which religion controls the land and for there to be peace that religion must be Islam. One last point before explaining further, the worst possible case for the followers of Islam is for the, as they would refer to us, accursed Yahud to take control of previously Islamic land. That is why Mahmoud Abbas made claim that every inch of Israel is an Islamic Waqf, which in this usage means an indelible and indivisible part of property belonging to Islam.

 

This is the idea through which UNESCO made all of the Old City of Jerusalem a Palestinian Heritage Site and disavowed any meaning or significance of the area to Jewish history or of any religious significance to the Jews. They did the exact same thing on Hebron which includes some of the holiest sites in all of Judaism including the Cave of the Patriarchs and Joseph’s tomb. They also had the same declaration on Bethlehem which apart from its Christian heritage is also the location of Rachel’s tomb. The churches in the Old City including the Church of The Holy Sepulchre as well as the churches in Bethlehem including the Church of the Nativity are claimed to be Mosques and belonging to Islam with no relevance to Christianity. They make a big spectacle around Christmas and Easter for economic reason selling trinkets to tourists. Another little concept which it might be wise to keep in mind when dealing with the Arabs, Taqiyyah, which is a directive within the Quran which actually not only allows a Muslim to lie to advance the causes of Islam but actually compels them to lie. The odds are that should they say something to you which is pleasing and meets your expectations, the odds are they are employing Taqiyyah and when the time comes to sign any treaty they will claim they never ever stated what you claim you heard. There is an easy way to understand the position of a Muslim when attempting to make a deal, which is what you claim you desire to accomplish. The first thing is that you must give and they must receive. That is the most basic concept in their minds. They can promise you anything but are not under any obligation to actually fulfill their promises. Anything you even intimate is a possibility, they will pocket that as something you promised and no amount of protestations or reality will change that in their minds. When dealing with them if you promise to give them something in return for something they offered you and then they break off negotiations and later decide to resume the negotiations, what you promised is the new starting point and they get to keep whatever you promised while you get nothing because they did not mean what they said when they agreed to exchange something for your concession.

 

We realize that this does not sound quite right and is a form of negotiating with which you are quite unfamiliar. Allow us to recommend you read some items from American history which might explain some of what you are getting into when dealing with Muslims. Read everything you can find in the White House records by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and any other records dealing with the Barbary Pirates and the two separate wars the United States was involved. You may even wish to read some of the commentary from our European counterparts from that period to get an idea at how useless the Europeans were in this struggle despite gaining from your efforts greatly. When Thomas Jefferson queried on why these attacks were being made on American ships when the United States had not entered into any conflict with the rulers of the Barbary Coast, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Ambassador from Tripoli, replied that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” Needless to say, Thomas Jefferson was quite floored at this response and it was then that he searched out a copy of the Quran in English and read it to his amazement and abhorrence. That is also the Quran which Keith Ellison took his oath of office upon and may have been behind President Obama’s claims that Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. Perhaps that last part just might give you an idea as to how far the Islamic practice of prevarication can reach.

Once you have made yourself more attuned to the people with which you are attempting to make a real estate deal and the fact that they are not negotiating anything remotely close to real estate, perhaps we can recommend some additional reading. Then again, you could simply have a long and uninterrupted sit down with your Nations Security Advisor as John Bolton is quite familiar with the history and this knowledge could be of much assistance. You might ask about the San Remo Conference and how the British when they received the Mandate decided that their Mandate to form a Jewish State in those lands did not explicitly state all of those lands, so they gave 78% to the Arabs and paid their debt to the Hashmites by giving them rule over Jordan and Iraq, King Feisal insisted that the British give both sons a kingdom. When the British gave the one son Iraq, they made a deal by which J. Paul Getty received total control of the Mosul oil fields and in return Iraq got to keep the lands which were to have been Kurdistan. This is why when the Kurds hinted they wished to separate from Iraq, it would have behooved the United States to have assisted so as to make good on a promise the world still owes to the Kurds. The British attempted to do the same to the Jews but we decided to ignore the State Department when they informed us that it would be inconvenient for us to declare independence in 1948 because as Jews we have been told it would be inconvenient too many times to care. You probably have noted that the State Department is not exactly a pro-American department and have opposed the greater good for a very long time starting with their tacit support of Hitler and Mussolini with their admiration of the efficiency of fascism. We have always believed that the State Department has always been a little to enamored with the idea of government control over everything. This may be why they also thought that Joe Stalin (Uncle Joe to the State Department) was such a wonderful guy and somebody the United States could take a few lessons from on how to run an economy. We can also tell you a little secret which is actually well known, the State Department thinks that Israel is just a royal pain and wish we would disappear and are willing to kowtow to Islam if they would take care of their Israel problem. Just ask John Bolton and he will probably tell you it would be in the best interests of the United States to recognize the borders Israel was at least promised by the British in exchange for their stealing away 78% of the Mandate lands, and that was that our eastern border was to be the Jordan River and Israel was obliged to recognize the right of everyone residing within her borders to practice their religion, have a business, equality on all economic matters, allowed to own land which means that they are to enjoy religious and civil rights without prejudice but there was one right which Israel could, should they so choose, reserve solely for Jews, political rights such as the vote and holding office. Now, obviously Israel did not choose to do so and gave full citizenship to the Arabs residing within her borders after the war to eliminate the Jews in 1948-9 fortunately fell short. Yes, we lost parts of Judea and Samaria as well as all of Gaza, but we saved our country to live and become the little giant she has become. What is really sad is how hard the world fights to deny us the small plot of land which is a mere 22% of the Mandate, but we all know what their motivating factors are, oil and hatred, an old and dirty hatred. Perhaps the solution would be to grant Israel the lands she was promised and tell the Arabs occupying our remaining lands that perhaps it is time that they moved on let us be. We know, that is way too much to expect from a world that would rather see us erased from the map.

Conflict is Just Getting to be Too Common

 

The first sign that something, anything be it wonderful or dreadful, has just become accepted by a society is when either it is no longer even reported upon or has ceased to ever make front-page news, especially above the fold. This has already happened in Europe and signs of it have crept within the news media in the United States, Israel and much of the developed world. They have familiarized these acts by using terms such as ‘lone wolf’ and ‘acted alone’ in such a way so as to make it appear that there is nothing left to do to prevent such events. We are, of course, speaking about Islam initiated violence within our societies. These acts of violence range from mass shootings at a person’s own workplace, rape gangs violating young girls across areas within Europe and virtually every terror attack in the United States and even in Israel. We had another earlier this week when an employee at one of the manufacturers which employ Palestinian Arabs from within the Palestinian Authority (PA) regions. One of the employed Palestinian Arabs brought a rifle to work and fatally shot two of their fellow employees and severely wounded a third who will recover after a stay in the hospital. There was the recent fatal stabbing of Ari Fuld in a shopping mall near his home and a Palestinian Arab village. As we recently reported, there are signs warning Israelis of the threat to their life and limb if they enter these regions (see image below), no such warning exists for the Arabs who enter into Israeli spaces. There are certain trends which are worth following, even if doing so changes nothing, these invectives must be shared.

There is some good news on the terror front within Israel and other news more disquieting and ignominious. The terrorism is mostly located within the disputed regions in the Shomron and in or around Jerusalem and specifically the Old City. There have been attacks in Tel Aviv and other major cities along the coast, but these are far less frequent. The central problem is that these are people stirred on not so much by religious fervor as by economic incentives. The PA spends much effort making their pay to slay program (see image below) well recognized by the Palestinians, specifically the youth where unemployment is rampant. All too often, we find the terrorists admitting that financial remunerations was an equal or greater reason for their attacks. Others have reportedly stated they committed the terror attack in order to be sentenced to Israeli prisons because life is easier, more pleasant and with better food than residing in the PA ruled regions. But the majority of terrorists claim they are fighting the good fight against the infidel, specifically the accursed Jew. This result is the logical conclusion to be expected when one reviews the PA textbooks and their education where terrorists are glorified and the description of the life awaiting a Shaheed filled with earthly pleasures both sexual and physical. What shocks many in the developed world is the reaction often shown by the mothers of the Shaheed which is extreme and profound joy that their child is a martyr for Allah. In reality, this rejoicing in the death of a child is simply the modern form for the child sacrifices to Ba’al and Moloch from the pre-Islamic gods. Having one’s child die in the commission of anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic violence grants the mother rights and an elevated position within Palestinian society as well as in other regions in the Middle East.

Thusfar, we have only spoken to the areas in and around Jerusalem and the Shomron and the unceasing regularity of terrorism striking people’s lives there. Things around Gaza take on an entirely different and strikingly dangerous description. Along the Gaza border, terrorism is institutionalized by Hamas with assistance from Islamic Jihad and financing from Iran. Often the terrorism came from rockets fired from the region into Israel. More recently, the attacks have come from incendiary devices carried into Israel by Kites and balloons. Some of these devices have been strapped onto birds who were sent flying towards Israel being carried as far as the victimized animal could reach before being murdered by its payload. The results has been thousands upon thousands of crops burned and lives destroyed as a result. These protests are anything but grassroots movements as Hamas indoctrination provides them with the manpower they require to cause such damage and threaten such violence. The Israelis residing just outside the Gaza region have experienced these attacks against their lives on a near constant basis since the 2007 take-over of Gaza from the PA. Their claim is that they so love the lands which they claim were stolen from Arab rule, that they are willing to burn the country to the ground in order to show the extent of their love. Perhaps we missed something in their logical progression from which the result is burning the lands to the ground because of your deep love. Somehow, this just does not click into place easily. Add to that their claim to love death as the Israelis love life.

 

In both cases, Hamas in Gaza and the PA in the Shomron, the Arabs have regions which they control absolutely and free of Israeli interference and in neither case has an economically viable situation even been close to being achieved. Everything from the education of the children to the media blasted to the captive audience has a single message, ‘Israel bad and Israelis, specifically the Jews are an evil which Islam demands be brought to obey their proper masters, the Muslim Arabs. The position of superiority is that of Arabs but only if, they follow Islam, and as such, the final state of the world is promised by the Quran to be populated solely by these exemplary peoples. For the average Israeli who is either Christian, Jewish, Bahá’í or any other non-Islamic faith, the message is clear, we do not care one whit about our world or our wasted opportunities where we could have reached peace and shared these lands but refused, all we care about is the eradication or subjugation of every one every where starting right here. This prevalent attitude spreads all across the regions where Islam borders the rest of the world and is currently making inroads in Europe, the United States and the rest of the developed world. This spread has brought the effects of Jihad to the rest of the world and now they can share in the problems faced by Israel.

 

The lack of credible reporting and the whitewashing of terrorism and all of its ties to Islam has increased to the point where it has endangered their societal structure in order to accommodate Islam. Almost to becoming policy has been the rush to assure everyone that every attack is not caused by terrorists. Every mass shooting, bombing or other attacks, almost immediately the FBI will issue the statement that this attack is not being investigated as to its relation to Islam. The mantra started by President George W. Bush has been, “Islam is a religion of peace.” This was the message given after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center Towers which murdered close to three-thousand innocent Americans. This was the phrase most heard in the speeches after the Charlie Hebdo killings. When the culprit of some heinous act which resulted in the murder of numerous innocents is caught and he makes claims that his actions were a form of Jihad and that he was performing in service of Allah, we are told that this was a lone wolf and that there is no possibility of another attack. Often it feels less reassuring and more as if they are saying for us to move along and take no notice of these events. The real hurt is when you finally realize that their actual target is to immunize one into accepting Islamic Mosques and Civic Centers because these locations are where the average Muslim goes to in order to learn about the Quran and then go forth and make their statement. These statements are all too often not peaceful. Yes, we realize that there are thousands upon thousands of peaceful Muslims, peaceful followers of Islam. These are the minority of the over one and a half billion and approaching two billion Muslims living here amongst the world’s population.

We have been told that the Muslims generally are peaceful and do not support violence. Even were we to accept that a mere ten percent of the followers of Islam are prone to commit violence, that would still be almost two-hundred-thousand Muslim extremists. Now imagine if that number was off and the reality was more like one out of four Muslims have violent tendencies. This would result in close to half a billion possible Jihadists. We believe you can see where this is going, but allow us one last set of numbers. According to a poll taken worldwide by the Pew Research Group, they asked if the Muslims believed that Sharia was the word of Allah or a human invention (see table below) where we agreed with the accompanying article that by a comfortable margin, over half of Muslims believe it was given by Allah, we figured it was between seventy percent and eighty percent believe that Sharia is the exact works spoken to Muhammad by Allah. This means that three quarters of Muslims fully support Jihad as revealed through the Quran. This means that almost one and a half-billion Muslims believe in Jihadist activities. That is a number which should be frightening.

Unbelievably, there actually is a means of changing these equations such that Islam can and will exist beside the other religions and those who believe in Secular Humanism and claim they have no religion because religions take things on faith and they believe and trust science where things are proven using basic axioms which if taken to their very roots, are based on assumptions which are taken as true on faith because there does not appear to be any concept more basic. What the Secular Humanists do not understand is that everything, including science, have some basic understandings which must be agreed upon and taken on faith as being true and on whose truth all else stands. In Islam, this truth is the Quran which is a very interesting piece of reading. Should you pick up a standard Quran and start reading, you will become confused very quickly until you realize that it is not compiled in chronological order. The standard Quran is set up in such a way as to make it easier for children to memorize starting with the shortest verse and ending in the longest verses. Once you find a copy of the Quran which is compiled in chronological order, then you will also need to know where the switching point is located. This is the point where the writings go from the Meccan verse to the Medina verses. You have to understand that there are basically two Qurans which are very contradictory. For more on this we have a very short introduction explaining these differences and how they are applied in modern Islam in this article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? 

 

Once you have received that basic information, the remainder of this article will make far more sense. We understand that many already have a familiarity with the Quran, so here goes. Currently, the Islamic powers that be became very frightened at how easily a few British, French or other European troops and especially American forces, though heavily outnumbered in numerous battles, were able with the use of advanced war technologies, mainly the machinegun, able to defeat the Islamic forces, even those on horses or camels. Then when the early tanks were introduced, the Muslims realized that they had fallen far behind the Western powers. After World War I they set to try and find a solution and they did something actually very logical but also very wrong. They decided to look into their history and find where it was they had the greatest advantage over the Western forces and the world. This was when facing the crumbling Byzantine Empire despite their needing almost forever to breach the walls of Constantinople. This was also immediately after the death of Muhammad and the time they expanded throughout the Middle East defeating the remnants of the Persian Empire and took the Holy Lands from the Byzantines and conquered Northern Africa from numerous tribes and well before they faced a problem called the Mongols. This led them to adopt the exclusionary and warlike verses of the Medina Quran and return to the concept of abrogation which took the later verses as being the truth and overruling any earlier verses which might contradict the Medina verses. This completely removed the Meccan Quranic concepts from Islam and made Islam a purely empire, conquest, world domination, exclusionary and superceding religion. This placed Islam on a path of world conquest, just not quite immediately. They realized there was some problem when they lost face while facing the United States twice in the Barbary Wars. But in World War I, they were decimated by the modern armies of the Western World and in the ensuing decades the distance between the two worlds only increase exponentially. But in warfare, one is not required to invent everything as they can simple buy the latest technologies. This is easily seen just by counting the AK-47’s in use by terrorists worldwide.

 

Now the Arab nations have bought some of the most advanced fighting equipment including tanks, aircraft, personal weaponry and missiles systems. But even with all the technological advanced equipment, one still needs people trained in their full implementation and tactical usages. The lack of this skill became evident in the Second Gulf War where Saddam Hussein had dug his tanks into berms making them immobile artillery pieces which were destroyed easily. Still, the Imams decided that what Islam was required to do was find a subversive means for taking control of the Western nations. The weakness they saw was that the people appeared to sleep through elections unless stirred up, such as why there is a President Trump. This made them vulnerable to electoral conquest by slowly getting their people into power and then taking over and ending democracy replacing the laws, Constitutions and everything with Sharia. This is already in progress across much of Europe where there are Islamic enclaves which are run under Sharia and are independent of the national government and police enforcement. But there is a path which Islam could decide to take which would be more along the ideas they pursued during the Golden Age of Islam. During these times, they applied the Meccan Quran and were open to science and math and learning about the world, the human anatomy and other sciences and led the world in many of these areas. They fell behind more due to economic problems than their attitude and direction in dealing with the outside world. A return to pluralism could bring an injection of new scientific studies as the oil wealth could be utilized to build the best and most modern laboratories for the advance research in numerous fields from physics to medicine, mathematics to chemistry, biology to archeology. What all of this would require is for Islam to purge their holy books of the idea they must conquer the world and all must adopt Islam or die. This will lead eventually to intertribal wars as eventually such purification will inevitably lead to the most basic of Arab beliefs. The belief that my belief is pure and all who do not adopt my beliefs are therefore apostates leads to the proverb of, “My Brother and I against My Cousin; My Cousin and I against the Stranger.” In the end there can be, as stated so eloquently in Highlander, there can be only one simply because nobody else is as pure as the one who Allah chose above all the others who lost.

 

In the End there Can Be Only One

In the End there Can Be Only One

 

The solution is the original texts as placed in the Mecca Quran, the actual verses which mostly described Islam during its Golden Age, as described above. This would also solve numerous problems Islam appears to present on its borders throughout Northern Africa in the African Transition Zone plus the border between Pakistan and India where they divided up the former nation of Kashmir as well as the ongoing historic conflict between Turkey and Greece. There are more recent areas where this conflict between Islam and everything else is being waged which include Russia, China, the Philippines and coming to Europe and North America much of which can be detected on this interactive map. Were Islam to decide to settle for the large tracts of land they control from Morocco to Malaysia and for having a fair percentage of the world population and instead of terrorism and further exploits of conquest through everything from subversion to outright violence and work on education and the advancement of their society, they could not only join the modern world, but within a couple of generations become a hub of enterprise and a jewel of world advancement. The first step would be reversing their concept of abrogation and instead of having the later verses of the Medina Quran be considered superior, they could just as easily decide that the Mecca verses as being those given quietly in a cave where Muhammad was alone when hearing the words as being of a more pure nature, then Islam could become married to the world instead of attempting to subjugate the world. They could become a beacon of the powers of acceptance.

 

This is a path which has some support amongst some of the most moderate amongst Islam who are being shunned simply because theirs is a calm message which promises a future which though more rewarding in the finality of things requires dedication and education which are items which demand sacrifice and intense study to be learned sufficiently well to further knowledge. Those screaming for Jihad claiming that Islam can just walk forth and take the world which is ready to collapse before them do make the loudest of sounds, but their path is equally boisterous and adventurous, its ways are violence which only begets violence and in the end, their results are swaths of destruction and great despair and sorrow. With the modern forms of complete warfare including biological agents who care not which side whose lives they take, chemical weapons which leave bodies twisted and broken having died an agonizing death and the final warfare weapon being atomic weapons which can be utilized as EMP devices destroying all technology, neutron bombs which remove all lifeforms but leave the infrastructure intact and the simple thermonuclear device which wipes the land clean of life and structures leaving behind a wasteland. These last results are what will be the remains of our age of technology and weaponry and by the time it reaches a final battle, Armageddon if you please, we may have built a small number of anti-matter warheads which just require dropping and allowing their cores of anti-matter to mix with whatever they find and the resultant explosion will make Hiroshima be as if it were a firecracker by comparison. There are those who claim that mankind has reached this nuclear age and been on the verge of greatness and exploding out into space only to have destroyed all in a series of wars which basically bombed humanity back to the Stone Age. Perhaps this time we might avoid that end result and not destroy everything just to start all over from square one. What do you think?

Trump’s Pending Peace Plan Will be Dead on Arrival

 

The one guarantee we can give about President Trump’s pending Middle East Arab Israeli peace plan, otherwise known as the ‘Deal of the Century,’ is that it will be based on hopes, prayers and will have a snowballs chance in the Negev at high noon in August of surviving past any forced Israeli concessions. That is the part which scares us half to death, that there will be demands that Israel once more release murderers, give land within the Shomron or possibly build a multi-lane highway between Gaza and the Palestinian regions so that Hamas can make nice with the Palestinian Authority. The promises and hints which have been floated have claimed that there will be parts which both sides will hate and which both sides will love. We can explain this more easily by telling you that what Israel likes they will hate and what Israel hates they will love and demand that Israel meet those conditions and then they might give President Trump their answer. We can also tell President Trump what that answer will be after they pocket whatever Israel would then be forced into allowing, they will claim that Israel did not fully meet the stipulations and will double down hoping that President Trump will give them more presents and once the President tells them they need to now give something, they will turn their backs and start another Intifada. That has been how it has always been ever since the initial Oslo Accords. Every peace plan has been Israel sacrifices and then Israel is sacrificed under a barrage of murderous attacks.

 

The problem is that President Trump will put the Israeli Prime Minister on the spot pointing out that he recognized Jerusalem and moved the American embassy there though he also reserved that East Jerusalem might still have to be gifted to the Palestinian Authority. That might just be the generous gift which President Trump has in his plans when he has said that the Palestinians are next to receive something good. They already have received plenty of presents all at the expense and safety of Israel. Perhaps President Trump might be served by having a heart to heart conversation about what happened when President Clinton was told by Yassir Arafat what terms he would accept from Israel and after he cajoled Prime Minister Ehud Barak to meet everything which Arafat had demanded, good old Yassir, may he rot in…, he simply walked out of the talks without even demanding anything and refused to meet again. I am sure that President Trump would love to hear that story and perhaps it might provide him with some insight as to how the Middle East works. When a leader from an Arab Muslim nation tells you something that you find pleasing and encouraging, you should immediately stop and look into the past dealings and see where the hidden double meaning is and after that look even deeper and find the truth of what was stated. Very often the truth, the reality is the exact opposite of what was stated and the stated intent was only to gain your trust and take something for nothing before pulling the rug from beneath your feet and laughing at the silly Westerner who does not understand anything about how to barter. We just hope President Trump will allow Israel to unleash an offensive to drive the entirety of the Palestinian Arab population beyond the Jordan River and Gaza into the Mediterranean Sea or at least the Sinai Peninsula. The reality is there would be little difference as once they are within Egypt; they will drive them into the Mediterranean Sea.

President Trump, you have likely talked with Abdullah II of Jordan and probably felt the visceral hate he has for Mahmoud Abbas and the entire idea of allowing the Palestinian Arabs to become even an auxiliary part of his kingdom. Perhaps you should look up on the internet, and we will include the link for your viewing ease, Black September which was also the name of the terrorist squad which took the name to honor Arafat when they murdered the Israeli Olympic Team during the Munich Olympics. Just for good measure, we thought we would include a second link just to further explain exactly what kind of people you are attempting to deal with on an honest basis. Just to be frank, there is no means of dealing with Mahmoud Abbas on an honest basis and just slightly more likely with the Hamas leader, Yehiya Sinwar, who is more likely to just tell you from the outset that he wants every Jew in the world dead and then he will be coming for the United States. Why do you think that Hamas has sponsored the riots every day nonstop since March 30 of this year and will very likely ignore Egyptian President Sisi demands for him to at least keep his enraged rioters a distance from the border fence before they spark a response from Israel. He desires an armed confrontation with Israel because he knows that Israel warns the Gazans where they are going to move next and with such information he can tie Gazans up in their homes which will be rigged with explosives and when the IDF soldiers attempt to move them to safety, they will detonate the house. Hamas, in coordination with the United Nations through UNRWA, built a clinic in Gaza which was also the transfer point between a number of their tunnels and they placed explosives inside the walls and when three IDF soldiers entered the clinic, Hamas terrorists detonated the clinic. Just in case you needed a definition of evil incarnate, that is exhibit one.

 

These are the kinds of people with whom you are dealing, and we use the reference people very loosely. The Western mind frame cannot easily understand and digest the extent and depth of the hatred felt by Arabs for all others. They even have difficulty getting along with each other. Perhaps you should read the diary written by T.E. Lawrence While Travelling in Arabia where an insight into the petty little people they were according to his words where he tried to explain to an educated Arab leader how their tribalism would inhibit their ever advancing their civilization. Little has changed since his efforts to bring them together to help the British in World War I. Are there Arabs who are nice people. Yes, and actually Arabs are some of the most hospitable people you could ever meet, individually. It is when they are in groups their attitudes and manners change. Then the only thing which matters is their family honor and they will kill to protect it including killing a daughter who even dates the wrong man. They refer to such as a Honor Killing. We are sure you have heard of such in the News and how it has become a problem in Europe and has occurred in North America. We do not expect that our article would alter your plans, and that is simply too bad. You will be like every Western leader before you who will simply not understand the people with whom you are dealing. There is a reason why Israel will be hard pressed to sacrifice land to the Palestinian Authority, especially land which overlooks Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. When Jordan held what they called the West Bank illegally against International Law, this also might be something nobody has informed you about, but during that time Israelis could not enter the streets which were in direct line of sight from the Jordanian areas as doing so would place them in danger of being shot by the Jordanian snipers who were placed on any high ground overlooking parts of Israeli Jerusalem. Certain Israeli buildings had to have walls built between them and the sniper positions in order to be occupied. Things would be exactly the same if the Palestinian Arabs had lands overlooking Jewish areas. If you ever wish to visit Israel and fly into Ben Gurion International Airport, you do not desire to have the Palestinian Authority holding the land overlooking the airport, especially flying an airplane so obviously marked as a target saying shoot me first. Let’s face it, a 747 which says on it in large letters “United States of America” and painted all nice in bold colors, as someone with a Stinger Missile would be waiting almost salivating at the great opportunity. Should the Palestinians be granted the pre-Six Day War borders, then Tel Aviv would soon have a smoldering ruin where the downtown towers currently stand. That is a reality which Israel must never permit and if we balk at anything you should recommend, it is because Israel is not going to commit suicide for anybody, even you. Please look up the San Remo Conference and realize that Israel already gave away 78% of the British Mandate so the Arabs could have Jordan, and we assume you know this. When they claim they only want 22% and smile approvingly when leaders from Western nations ask, ‘you mean the West Bank and Gaza’ and refuse to say anything further. They do not answer because they mean the 22% of the British Mandate which is Israel, they want everything from, as their protester exclaim, from the River to the Sea. No, Mr. President, we are not being obstinate, we just want to live and be free to realize our twenty-five-hundred-year-old dream, to return to Zion and rebuild our Temple and reunite with our land and with Hashem.
