Mob Scene with Guns at Their Backs

 

March 30, 2018, is the tentative date for the Hamas sponsored March of Return in Gaza with co-sponsors Islamic Jihad. Their hoped turnout will place a massive procession of 100,000 Gazans with the objective of storming the Israel security fence around Gaza to signify the return of Gaza’s refugees to their original homes. For everyone’s information, if this were truly a march of those who were alive on May 14, 1948 marching on the fence, first there would not be 100,000 Gazans and second they would not be moving with sufficient force to destroy the fence as the youngest would be sixty-nine years old. This match has nothing to do with the fence, their supposed homes or anything else which the media will report; it is about attempting to force Israel to stop the human wave assault on its territory and in the process causing casualties amongst the presumably unarmed Gazans. It can be expected that most of those taking part in this protest will not necessarily be doing so voluntarily and further we can expect that some of those towards the rear will be from Hamas and Islamic Jihad carrying weapons to shoot those not showing the correct level of enthusiasm. Anybody being shot, whether in the front or the back will be blamed on Israel and much of the media will gladly go along with that story, especially any media reporting from Gaza where the outgoing stories are often edited and checked for validity according to Hamas. The last time a general assault was made on the Gaza security fence was Gaza December 29, 2017, where Israel responded with dispersal methods including tear gas grenades as shown in the image below. That was sufficient to prevent any further complications at that time, may things be even less traumatic with this coming threat.

 

Gaza Fence Mass Assault of December 29, 2017

Gaza Fence Mass Assault of December 29, 2017

 

The original hope by Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders was for there to be a reciprocal mass walking assault on the security barrier organized by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Fatah in Judea and Samaria regions under PA rule. They ever envisioned Arab communities of Israeli Arabs to also stage walking assaults within Israel in order to press Israeli police and security forces to their limit or beyond. Any coordination between Fatah or the PA and Hamas was quite destroyed by the Tuesday March 13, 2018, assassination attempt of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Gaza. Further, even before this killed any hopes of cooperation, the two sides could not even agree on a date for the protests. Where the PA and Fatah decided that the anniversary of Israel founding, May 14, would be the perfect date, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have their hearts set on March 30, which is the day on which many Israeli Arabs commemorate Land Day. With all hopes for joint cooperation, Hamas will likely continue with their plan for March 30, 2018, which is tomorrow.

 

The Gaza fence is relatively stout and may or may not be able to stave off and withhold the assault being made by the human wave (see image below). Then the Israeli security forces would be faced with a horrible situation, either permitting the assaulting crowds to pummel and roam through the area possibly assaulting Israeli citizens or use force to prevent these invaders from progressing any deeper into Israel. The aim of Hamas and Islamic Jihad is to have the Israeli security forces use force and cause a massive casualty event which they would use the pictures to splash across newscasts worldwide attempting to paint Israelis as vicious killers. The simple question one need ask is what if a neighboring nation with which your country had poor relations made a mass convergence on the border with the intent of trespass followed by mischief or worse, what would the response be by security forces from your nation? Would they allow them entry and pass out maps showing the best tourist spots to visit while they roamed the countryside or would they do whatever it took to round up the trespassers and return them from whence they came.

 

Gaza Separation Fence

Gaza Separation Fence

 

This is a real serious question we want my readers to actually consider. What does one call it when one-hundred-thousand people from a hostile foreign independent autonomous region with belligerent governance that has stated its intention to destroy your nation and everybody who believes as you do religiously from the entire planet, as Hamas has threatened Israel and the Jewish People, move on your border with stated hostile intent? In our book, we call this an invasion. According to International Law, every nation has the right to enforce their borders from foreign intrusion in the process of providing protection for their citizenry. This is the principle behind President Trump and his obsession for building a wall on the southern border. It is all about controlling who is permitted to cross the border. Hamas knows that Israel has the right to protect the border, with deadly force if required. They are counting on Israel having to use deadly force to prevent the mass of humanity from transgressing their border producing a mass casualty event to flood the world with pictures of dead Gazans with IDF soldiers standing over them. The soldiers and their commanders may be looking at the choice of giving Hamas their publicity or allowing thousands of people infiltrating their nation with untold numbers being terrorists.

 

Terrorists are the second part of this plan. If they are capable of transgressing the border, Israel can be guaranteed that a percentage of the marchers are terrorists who will have plans on carrying out acts of terror in the future and will be attempting to get as far as possible into Israel and breaking away from the group so as to remain in Israel. That is one reason why Israel will need to contain any breach of the Gaza border and not allow any permanent infiltrations. The same would be true of any nation facing such a border breach and even more so if their enemy had as a priority infiltration of agents and terrorists, both perpetrators and organizers. As in the image of the earlier attempt where far fewer than one-hundred-thousand persons moved on the border and were prevented by tear gas, this attempt may also be thwarted through a judicious use of tear gas. The real problem is that there is the possibility that when Israel fires tear gas canisters or grenades that Hamas will throw fragmentation grenades into the mix and claim that Israel fired them as part of the attempt to disperse the crowd. As the entire aspect of this exercise by Hamas and Islamic Jihad is to produce dead Gazans and they may not be particularly bothered by who is responsible just as long as there is any doubt and Israel can be made suspect, it is to be expected that the possibility of Hamas and Islamic Jihad producing said casualties while screaming about Israeli violence. Any such claims made against Israel resulting from such an invasion attempt by these terror entities should be rejected without evidence which leaves absolutely no doubt. Unfortunately, Israel will not be granted such generosity by the Europeans or the world media as Israel is pretty much their favorite whipping boy. The truth is we hope that this date passes without any incident and the Gazans find the power to resist their overlords and neither Hamas nor Islamic Jihad is successful in this effort. Perhaps the world should do the Gazans a great favor and either replace their corrupt terror masters with a responsible governance or allow them to relocate to somewhere they are able to start life anew. That is what a responsible world would do, what this world will do is beyond us.

Yehuda Glick will likely be branded as a right wing extremist, a fanatically religious extremist, anti-Palestinian, an impediment to peace, a Temple Mount extremist demanding this area held holy by three major religions be restricted for only Jews, a heretic who is setting the Middle East on fire and virtually any lie they can believably attempt to sell to make his assassination attempt appear to be deserved. Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick was not any of these things, he was a man who advocated for religious freedom for the Temple Mount and to permit everybody to pray and worship as they see fit without fear of arrest or being banned from visiting the Temple Mount simply to satisfy the Islamic Waqf which is governed from Amman, Jordan. The Islamic Waqf enforces the restriction allowing solely Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount and forbids even the carrying or wearing of religious items on the Temple Mount as they could offend Muslim sensitivities. For his efforts to establish freedom of religion for all at one of the most universal religious locations on Earth Yehuda Glick was shot three times in the torso and lies in intensive care awaiting prayed for stabilization sufficient to permit further surgeries to mend the torn and punctured organs. Yehuda Glick needs the prayers of the world now as all the surgeons and physicians were able to accomplish was to control his bleeding, both internal and external, and stabilize him at the cusp between life and death as of this writing. The truth is the fight which Yehuda Glick struggle against placed his life on the line as he saw the real importance and full implications of his fight as it is the struggle to safeguard the right of religions other than Islam to exist in this world and be regarded as having equal rights and equal space. He was fighting on a significant though small scale of the war for the survival of Judaism and Christianity against the hegemonic and exclusionary threats from Islam, particularly extremist Islam such as the attitude that only Islamic prayers be allowed on the Temple Mount today, and in Jerusalem later and eventually, should Islamic active leaders who hold the positions of power have their way, having Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto and any religion other than Islam or even those who claim no religious preference from being forced into Islam or face death by the sword as commanded by the Quran and Sharia.

 

What was the most disgusting reality which has been proven today has been the lack of concern or even mention on much of the mainstream media and political talk shows about this attempted assassination in the heart of Jerusalem which was the first actual shots in the war for the rights to have any religious freedom in Jerusalem or face Jerusalem being made the third Islamic holy city after Mecca and Medina and like them becoming forbidden place for any other than Muslims. The struggle for dominion over the Temple Mount is the central struggle for Jerusalem and eventually all of Israel and then Europe and the Americas and then the remainder of the world. This is the fight which animated Yehuda Glick and the driving force which will hopefully also allow him with the help of G0d to not just survive this horrid assault but to thrive and return to his life’s quest with renewed vigor and even more intensity, if such is even possible. May the assassination attempt on Temple Mount activist and realist win him thousands of supporters for every minute his life straddles the cusp between life and death and may the new support for his struggle also benefit his fight to live and once again be with his family and friends and return to walk and pray freely and openly on the Temple Mount. May his vision of a Synagogue at the least and the rebuilt Temple as must be his dream as it is mine and millions of Jews throughout the world as we have held that desire sacred over the centuries since the Roman sacking of the Temple and Jerusalem the year 70.

 

This wanton act of hatred has disturbed me greatly even though I have never had the privilege or pleasure to have met and shared a discussion concerning his dream and life’s driving quest. The respect I have for the public effort and stand Yehuda Glick has pressed for all of his recent life is boundless which makes the lack of concern or even mention his attempted assassination has caused beyond Israel. There has been no denunciation from United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the one leader who can always be counted amongst those who will denounce Israel using the slightest of force to end rioting and rock assaults upon Israeli commuters along any Israeli road which passes by numerous Arab neighborhoods around Jerusalem and beyond. There has been no concern from European Union Foreign Secretary the Lady Catherine Ashton who routinely condemns Israel. No wishes for a recovery or concerns coming from heads of state from every corner of the globe. There has been nothing from President Obama or Secretary of State Kerry other than the unnamed administration source according to Jeffrey Goldberg who slurred Prime Minister Netanyahu as coward using the most egregious and base slang terminology.

 

There were comments from Jordan’s Islamic affairs minister, Hayel Daoud, who accused Israel of “state terrorism” for closing the Temple Mount for a few hours immediately after the assassination attempt which occurred in the relative proximity. Then there was the Arab street across the Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem who danced in the streets handing out sweets and candies celebrating the attempted assassination of a Jewish leader. Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas released a press release denouncing Israel for the instigating of violence and destructions on the Temple Mount and throughout Jerusalem, a usual action taken by Abbas every time there are any acts which might reflect poorly on Palestinians should they receive coverage such as the assassination attempt. This tactic has proven very effective as any articles begin with the Abbas denunciation of the Israelis and paints any rioting or acts of violence as honest reaction to whatever Abbas was referencing. There is no verification of Abbas and his charges but they are transmitted around the world before any coverage contrary to the blame Israel complaints from Abbas reach the media making it always to appear as if Israel is reacting to claims against their phantasmal extremist acts. There was the statement from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu who stated, “I would like to send my best wishes for a full and quick recovery to Yehuda Glick, who is now fighting for his life. I would also like to commend the ISA and the Israel Police for quickly solving this act of terrorism.” His congratulations were for their response and attempt to arrest the assassin who had attempted to murder Yehuda Glick who resisted arrest shooting at IDF troops supporting the arrest who returned fire killing the terrorist. Prime Minister Netanyahu further commented, “A few days ago, I said that we were facing a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas nom de guerre) who said that Jews must be prevented from going up to the Temple Mount by any means possible. I still have not heard from the international community so much as one word of condemnation for these inflammatory remarks. The international community needs to stop its hypocrisy and take action against inciters, against those who try to change the status quo.” The Prime Minister could have continued with the same criticism over the silence of the international community of nations, leaders and other political and ambassadorial persons and the busybodies who regularly are very vocal decrying any and every act from Israel. The silence is deafening and reveals the reality that as far as the world is concerned the life of leading Israelis and possibly even of any Jews has no worth nor generates any level of concern though every level of scorn is permissible at any time for any reason. This has clarified much as the world could not care less that a leading Temple Mount activist and founder of a front line human and religious rights organization, LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount, who was obviously targeted for nationalistic reasons, a polite wording which means terrorist act steeped in a deep and hot hatred which is a direct result from the instigations and defamations and plain outright calls for the murder of Jews for the supposed crime of breathing which is repeated daily throughout Palestinians society including from Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Palestinian leadership from Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others, in textbooks paid for by the European Union, United States, United Nations and European governments, media, cartoons and other children’s programming, youth groups and throughout the societal structures. Perhaps from this unfortunately angry and probably not so well written article there might start a ripple carrying the information that a man who simply journeyed through life exerting every ounce of his energy in attempts to establish a Jewish presence and equal rights for all religions on the Temple Mount with an emphasis for Christians and Jews who suffer most directly from the Islamic oppression being enforced by the Waqf appointed by Jordanian leadership as part of an agreement whereby Israel took steps to guarantee Islamic equal rights on the Temple Mount and has resulted in solely Islamic religious rights on the Temple Mount, the indifference must stop here. Below is an excerpt from Yehuda Glick’s final speech he delivered before leaving the Begin Center and being shot almost fatally by an Islamic Jihad terrorist.
