Future of Worry and Present of Threats

 

Temple Mount, just those two words bring up thoughts of rioting youth and terrorism murdering Israeli police and citizens. Ask anyone and they will tell you that the Israeli Arab conflict is one of the most difficult political problems on the planet. That thinking can and will never solve this conflict. There exists absolutely no political solution to this problem. The reason is this is not a political problem. More on this as we get further into the article.

 

Iran, this is also a political threat according to President Trump and most of the advisors and experts. Iran is attempting to take over much of the Middle East with control already stretching from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. They have all but taken over the southern half of Iraq, all of Lebanon and are working to take over much of Syria and appear to be succeeding with Russian assistance and the use of Lebanese Hezballah which for all intents and purposes is the Army of Lebanon plus what remains of the Syrian Army that remains loyal to Bashir al-Assad. Iran has been working towards a nuclear weapon and nobody can be absolutely assured that they are keeping to the supposed agreement made with President Obama. Most do not even know what the agreement between the nations was as each copy of the terms appears to be different. There are the Russian, European, and United States versions and nobody knows for sure what the Iranian agreement states. Iran has made remarkable progress on their missile technology and has been known to be working with North Korea which has to trouble everyone. The world will be seeking a political solution to this set of threats as well. This also is not a political problem.

 

North Korea and Kim Jong-un is probably the most pressing problem currently as he is about to go beyond the cusp and actually have a solid fueled ICBM capable of striking anywhere on the planet. Such a system is probably less than six months away and by that time he will most definitely have a nuclear EMP device (electro-magnetic pulse) capable of being placed atop just such a missile and taking out an electrical grid the size of North America or Europe. Further, he will likely have at least a nuclear device capable of decimating a city if not a thermonuclear device capable of destroying an entire metropolitan area. Some political solution is also being sought to this threat. This also is not a political problem.

 

China has been expanding her control in the South China Sea and threatening to take over disputed islands claimed by Japan and the Philippines. China has also refused to take any stand towards placing some control on Kim Jong-un. Many believe that this is due to China hoping that the trouble being sewn by North Korea will take the pressure and concentration of President Trump off the moves being exercised by China. This is probably not a wise move by China as President Trump is perfectly capable of addressing more than one problem at a time just as he is capable of causing more than one problem at a time. China, fortunately, is largely a political problem but also shares some of the properties of these other situations.

 

So, what is this magical and mysterious central concept that is not political at the center of these problems? In a single word, it is supremacy. For Iran and the Arabs, it is religious supremacy. For Kim Jong-un it is his view of himself as more than just a man but more of an idealized and worshiped leader who has abilities far above his enemies and other mere mortal beings. For China, it is the fact that China has been a world hegemon off and on for centuries and has always considered themselves superior to other nations and add in the Communist doctrines which tell that Communism will defeat Capitalism and the West given sufficient time, and time has always been in the favor of China. Where in the west we count our seconds and minutes, in China they count centuries and millennia. This has and still is an advantage as China operates on an entirely different view where they do not need to win today or tomorrow or in the next ten or hundred years. They believe that their patience and belief that their children or their children will one day rule the world will win them any contest.

 

So, as each of these conflicts is about supremacy of some sort, how does one become the victor? Let us take these situations in reverse order and start with China. There is no defeating the Chinese, only proving preeminent for now. If you can show China a strong front which is obviously a match if not superior to their current ability, China will lay back and wait building slowly but inexorably towards closing any gap or perceived deficiency. Currently China is building her Navy adding submarines and aircraft carriers. These are currently smaller and less capable than those of the United States, but China is rapidly making gains in the production of these vessels. This should not present a problem in the immediate as the United States can produce these as they wish as they just launched a new super carrier recently, the USS George H.W Bush CVN-77, which was the tenth of these super-carriers, three of which are currently stationed in or around the Sea of Japan and right off the coast of North Korea and China and rather close to the South China Sea when one considers the range of their aircraft (see image below). Where China will have difficulty keeping abreast of the United States militarily is simple, the United States spends more on her defense budget than China, Russia, India, Israel, Brazil, Britain, and Saudi Arabia combined. China knows they may be the eight-hundred-pound gorilla in the western Pacific, Sea of Japan, South China Sea and surrounding waters, but the United States is the ten-ton gorilla anywhere on the globe whenever she chooses to be so and the area just off China and North Korea currently has that privilege. China will rest and dream of a few centuries down the line but right now had best be concerned with India which is poised to become the most populous nation within a decade or two surpassing China. That one-child policy has really come to bite China.

Next is North Korea where Kim Jong-un is perfecting his ICBMs and his nuclear warheads for immediate future use against the United States. What people need remember is that the United States and North Korea are at war as are North and South Korea with one another. The United States and South Korea stand opposed to North Korea across an area which resembles a World War I no man’s land and both sides take casualties every so often just to punctuate the distrust and animosity. North Korea has sufficient artillery and rocket launchers including multiple-launch rocket vehicles (MLRV) to completely decimate the entirety of the greater Seoul metropolitan area. That would amount to millions of casualties and the decimation of the South Korean economy. This has been their threat for years and it has worked as planned. Now North Korea is on the verge of a new threat, nuclear annihilation to any city on Earth or an even more devastating weapons, a super EMP device which is a low yield but dirty nuclear device with a yield under twenty-five kilotons but which produces a massive EMP wave which destroys virtually all functioning electronics being active at the time. This includes the massive power transformers used in the electrical grid. If these are not heavily shielded and hardened against such a device they will explode, causing fires and massive outages of electrical power, quite possibly much of the North American or European grids. There are very limited numbers of companies which manufacture these transformers, as demand for them is proportional to the expansion of the world electrical grids which moves at a steady but slow rate, all things considered. Such a device could put a nation like the United States without adequate electrical generation and delivery capability for as long as a decade or even two resulting in a loss of over half if not three-quarters of the population. If such a device were detonated over Kansas City, the entirety of the central United States and reaching well into Canada would be affected. That is the threat the United States and potentially Europe face from North Korea as soon as they have the rocket and a warhead version making such a device deliverable, something they could already posses. There is no delicate means for addressing this threat short of decapitating the entirety of the North Korean military command and structure and then having South Korea take as much of the peninsula as China will allow them. It is very possible that the Chinese will not interfere in such an instance, as they would not care to absorb the problems economically which exists in North Korea.

Iran is fortunately not an immediate problem. One such problem is sufficient. Iran though is a growing problem which in some means resembles North Korea. The leadership of Iran feels they, as a whole, are superior to other people as they are the most learned in the Quran which gives them all the knowledge necessary to win. They have the ideology of Islam which promises them that Allah will make them the conquerors of the entire planet and all that their god commands. If life was found on a distant world and the Islamic peoples were aware of such and believed that to be a truth, then they would also expect to conquer that planet and subjugate and eventually convert or murder everyone. The main problem Iran has is Islam itself. Iran is Shiite Islam which is a small percentage of Muslims while Sunni Islam is easily ten times their numbers. Of course should Iran gain nuclear missiles and nuclear warheads, that might change rapidly. Then akin, if Iran developed nuclear weapons one can bet that Saudi Arabia would simply purchase a number of warheads sufficient to remove Iran and her allies from the map and then do so. Next to North Korea, Islam on Islam internecine warfare is the second highest risk of nuclear war breaking out on our globe. The most likely is between Saudi Arabia and Iran and should that occur and the Saudi Arabia manage to lose that exchange, the next would be Egypt who would likely ally so fast with Pakistan and likely arrange the launch to come from Pakistan as they are closer to Iran anyways. Egypt would waste no time getting aid from the United States and possibly even seek assistance from, of all places, Israel to intercept anything headed for Egypt as well as defending herself. Iran may soon require being toppled, something which a wise United States State Department would already be working on. Unfortunately the United States State Department has never really shown much of a proclivity for doing the right thing ever since World War I, they were even almost on the wrong side of World War II except the rest of the United States chose better.

 

Finally, we get to the Arabs and Israel. This is a very basic and simple situation. The Arabs are Muslims and the Israelis are Jews. To the Arab mind this is a simple problem, they are Islam, the sole true religion on earth and Israel are the Jews, the most contemptable religion on earth. Are there any questions after that description? There are only two results in this situation, either the Jews are annihilated or the Arabs go away or are so subjugated and defeated that even the sight of a yarmulke makes them shake with terrorizing, gripping fear. The problem is the world refuses to allow Israel to win such a victory and demands Israel make concessions to repair a political situation. Every concession Israel makes just has the Arabs believing Israel is frightened of them and reinforces their sense of superiority making the solution that much more distant. Should Israel be permitted to go through the Arab areas, take all the terrorists out and deal with them in a primitive and brutal manner, the problem would end the next sunrise. Even if the Jordanian Arabs were to get their independence from the Jordanian King and invite the Arabs to move to Jordan, they would still believe that they should conquer Israel as well. Only a defeat of the Arabs living within the lands promised Israel would end this conflict for the time being. There is only one thing which would solve this problem permanently, but the world is nowhere near ready to hear such an idea, though that time is soon to come or the world is in worse shape than we thought. Islam will require having its wings clipped and clipped severely such that the sound of a jet engine or the sound of tank tracks or a car motor sends then quivering to the furthest corner. Islam in several means is resurgent and will start to attempt conquest if not prevented through a display of actual willingness to prevent such an explosive force of destruction. Imagine terrorist attacks the globe over similar to what Israel faced in the Second Intifada and you have an idea of how such a war will soon progress. Israel has still to come to terms with this truth; the world is even further from this realization. There are some who see this such as John Bolton, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brigitte Gabriel and a select group of others. The only hope is for the world to awaken before it becomes necessary for another World at War.

Selective Considerations by Leftist Women

 

It is known that the feminist movement is very closely attuned to those threats to women in our societies. Any male who steps out of the straight and narrow is quickly brought before the leftist corrective attitude adjusters who demand complete and total compliance. It initiates demands that one become complacent and performs the required mea culpas admitting their serious transgressions. One would believe that this was a consistent series of demands that are universally applied in all situations. Apparently, that is a false assumption. One must understand that these universal laws for appreciating and understanding how one is permitted to interact with those of the fairer sex are not universal as Islam is permitted a pass and is permitted any treatment of women as they have established rules which must be respected. Why are the definitions of Islam sacrosanct while those of Judaism and Christianity are forced to meet constricting definitions of the new age cult of politically correct gender interaction, functions and restrictions? The answer is simple, Islam meets the requirements of the new masters of our societies while Judaism and Christianity are but former rulers of all that is correct and that which is not, but now are tired old religions no longer appropriate to our modern societal needs. The masters of all that is holy and that which is not have a predilection for Islam as it provides those things that society desires above all other choices, iron force of power over function.

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani

The proof of this preference to excuse all the political misguided oppressions over women posed by Islam became undeniably apparent in a recent Senate Homeland Security Committee and Governmental Affairs on the Islamism Treats. The two women who were requested to present the subject for that day’s discussion were Asra Nomani and Ayaan Hirsi Ali talking of the detrimental treatment of women under Islamist rule, under Sharia (entire committee meeting video can be viewed below). These women are two of the most qualified people on the planet on this subject both through their educational experience and through their real life experience having been brought up in strict Muslim families and having suffered the various deprivations first hand. The two women come from conservative and strict though separate Islamic communities with Ayaan are from Somalia and Asra is from India. Both of them were born into deeply conservative Muslim families. Ayaan is a survivor of female genital mutilation and forced marriage. Asra defied Sharia by having a baby while unmarried. They have both been threatened with death by jihadists for things they have said and done throughout their careers where both have bravely spoken truthfully of Islamic practices. Ayaan cannot appear in public without armed guards. One would think that these two women would be taken seriously, especially when speaking of their first hand experiences as well as their extensive studies and research which they have carried out once free of the iron grasp of Islam where they had basically been chattel to be traded or killed as seen fit by their male masters.

 

 

The four Democrat women Senators attending the aforementioned committee hearings were California’s Kamala Harris, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill. They were remarkably silent, well, except for Senator Claire McCaskill who, taking exception to the entirety of the hearings and specifically the targeted theme, stated, “Anyone who twists or distorts religion to a place of evil is an exception to the rule. We should not focus on religion.” What did have her “worried” was that the hearing was organized by Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin. She further “underline that” the only questions asked of them about Islamist ideologies came from Republicans Senator Johnson and his colleague, Senator Steve Daines from Montana. These were amongst the points brought out in an editorial from The New York Times authored by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani.

The two women further explained in their article that they were just as invisible to the Mullahs at the Mosque as they were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate. They queried as to whether perhaps Senators Heitkamp, Harris, Hassan and McCaskill are simply uninterested in sexism and misogyny as women’s issues. It was noted that these ladies of the Senate had, in the past, given their outspoken support of critical women’s issues, such as the kidnapping of girls in Nigeria and campus sexual assault, that is far from the case. The truth then has to be that when it comes to Islamic treatment of Muslim women, the Senators have no grievances. It very well may be what Asra Nomani said in Georgetown in her conversation with Jewish Civilization Professor Jacques Berlinerblau sponsored by The Georgetown Review where she stated, “We’re still caught in a tribal culture.” What a sad commentary that honestly, the truth may be that though the Democrats believe and feel for the women; yet must not professionally appear to take issue with anything critical of Islam in general and only take issues with acts of terrorism.

 

 

So, it is terrorism bad and Islam innocent. When we look at things this way it describes and explains much about Democrat treatment of Islamic issues generally. They will decry Islamist terrorism but ignore everything else about Islam which if such should be seen committed by any other religious group, then they would be outraged. We know, where is the example? Well, it just so happens there is a glaring one. In Islam men are permitted to marry up to four women with certain provisos such as the approval of their first wife, which is unlikely to be problematic, but Mormons are not granted a pass on this as in this ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups makes it clear that neither fundamentalist Mormons nor anyone else has an inherent right to multiple marriages. There have been articles and specials on daytime “talk” television shows of polygamous marriages without these men being charged and, from our limited knowledge, the majority claim Islam as their religion. The reality is in the United States, now that same-sex-marriage has been all but generally legalized, the next targets are polygamy and polyandry, or multiple marriages. After that, the push will be to demand for communal marriages with other combinations that include multiple partners of both sexes and possibly sexualities. Beyond such we do not even wish to speculate as it starts getting beyond weird and into disgusting, though we did wonder whether the Japanese man who claimed to be in love with a fine ceramic mannequin was permitted his marriage.

 

Islam has been given a pass on many of the practices permitted by the Quran for reasons we have spoken of before and plan to continue that debate. The reason is that it is different from Judeo-Christianity and has a very separate structure and that makes it something the leftists believe they can hijack and use for their own political aims. Their desire, as we pointed out a few days ago in our article, “But it is All Relative These Days,” the driving force behind much of leftist political war is for the return to what they believe is a more natural life for the human animal, barbarism. They wish to return to a tribal mentality where strength will be defined by their parameters allowing for their elites to rule over fiefdoms and a return to the Middle Ages with royalty and courts of power with positions assigned, though they will likely craft new titles, which will modernize the theme. Their idea is for a smaller population allowing for pockets of civilization surrounded by pristine wilderness, which will be legally made out of bounds like hunting the King’s deer in stories like Robin Hood, and actual laws passed in jolly old England. They have properly noted that Islam is a vertical aligned hierarchy, which is very different from Judeo-Christianity, which believes in a middle class, which have equal rights and a controlled political class, which is chosen by the people. This is what they desire to be rid of, the need for elections as they can go seriously wrong, as in this last election, or so they keep telling us. The leftists desire real and uncontestable power where they can pass all the ecological nonsense, which they believe, is necessary for the continued health of their Earth goddess, “Gaia.” Their brave new societal structure will use electric vehicles because nobody will be permitted to drive beyond the range of their cars, a paltry hundred miles or so. All travel between ecological fiefdoms will be by travel permit and such permits will be far and few between. The people will be relegated to a second-class life if they are fortunate. There will be three main classes; the hierarchy, which will consist of the chosen few and those fortunate to buy into their esteemed position; the technical class, which will reside within the city walls and be well provided for and may even attend some of the royal functions if they earn it through proper groveling; and those relegated to the outskirts who will have menial laborious positions or assist with the farming which will use high yield-small area farming technics such as hydroponics and genetically modified crops. Needless to point out, there will be the outliers who will reside in scrublands which the elite royalty believe is beyond salvage where they will grow GMO free food with free range animals such as chickens, sheep, cattle, pigs and other wildlife. These will be permitted because they will manage these lands in a natural way, natural being the optimum word.

Islam works currently, as there is no other force challenging Judeo-Christianity. Before Islam there were the Communists of the USSR and before that there were the Fascists who had the perfect centrally planned society and also desired to return humankind to a state of barbarism as promised by none other than the toast of the town with such supporters as William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Graeme K. Howard, Andrew Mellon, Henry Ford, Prescott Bush, and Thomas J. Watson, before 1938 and that whole Czechoslovakia affair. There were a plethora of American companies in with the fascists of Europe including, but not limited to, US Steel, Alcoa, DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil, Ford, ITT, IBM, National City Bank, Bayer Co., General Aniline Works, Agfa Ansco, Winthrop Chemical Company and General Electric. There was also the small matter of the publication of Henry Ford’s infamous writings in a four part publication called “The International Jew” This was just part of the entirety of the alignment of even the United States Department of State and other departments with some rumors of it reaching into the White House under Franklyn Delano Roosevelt.

The history of the Progressive Left is one of always seeking to find some means of compromising the Constitution of the United States because of claims that there was too much Christianity and Judaism included in its drafting. The belief was that the Founding Fathers were too religious and believed too deeply in G-d and thus their entire Constitution was mired and confounded by Jewish input and too much dependence upon morality and G-d. The Progressives also believed that the power being granted to the people was a mistake as the people were poor and ignorant because otherwise they would be wealthy and educated. The Progressives believed that only those with a proper education from a proper university, also particular universities, were worthy of ruling and making the decisions necessary for the government to function. Allowing the people to elect Congress and the President meant that at crucial times they could choose the wrong people, not only that, but often the wrong type of people, and they had numerous examples of such people being elected. Power, according to the Progressives and the Leftists had to be removed from the people and handed to their betters. That was what led the Progressive left to find great company with the Fascists and then the Communists and now Islam; each has a structure, which allows for power to be centralized and independent from the desires and voting of the people. Also as part of the Progressive left and the leftists of today is rampant anti-Semitism, something that somehow has never prevented many secular Jews to join these leftists in their desire for absolute power. What is really unbelievable is that these secular Jews who agree that the Bible, like the Constitution, is simply old, dated, out of touch and useless for ruling in a modern world. These secular Jews were the ones who claimed that Hitler did not mean it when he said the Jews were a scourge on society, they simply would excuse this as his meaning those religious Jews, those crazy Jews who were different, were unassimilated. Certainly, he did not mean the secular Jews as they were good Germans and had served in the Great War right alongside of Hitler and his followers. Well, as it turns out, Hitler meant all the Jews including those secular Jews. Meanwhile, in Russia we had the secular, university educated Jews supporting Communism as the cure to societal ills. Of course Marx, Engels, Trotsky, Lenin, and their Communist friends were not anti-Semitic, after all Marx and Trotsky were university assimilated Russians before they were Jews. They would hardly ever be found entering a synagogue and were not seen as Jews as much as Russian Communists by their comrades. They were part of the Revolution and thus were not like those shtetl Jews. Those shtetl Jews lived separate and in ghettos and were ignorant and uneducated. They lived as the Jews did back in biblical times, dressed all funny with heads covered and the strings hanging out, they looked absolutely comical, not like the cosmopolitan Jews of the cities. And under Lenin and ever more so under Stalin, they found out that to an anti-Semite, any Jew was a shtetl Jew.

The Leftists of today will prove to be no different from their Progressive, fascist supporting, Communist supporting, and now Islamist supporting comrades of the Revolution. These leftists were called Progressives in the 1020’s and 1030’s until World War II gave the title Progressive an anti-American taste, and rightfully so. This was understood by the Progressives, so one could not find a progressive come the mid 1940s and on through the 1950’s, 1960’s and the 1970’s as the name had become poison. They changed into a new and beautiful butterfly with the new title of Liberals. This upset Libertarians and Classical Jeffersonian Liberals because it tainted their names, especially the latter of the two. Now a Classical Jeffersonian Liberal had to identify specifically and then add that they were not at all like those calling themselves liberals who had nothing in common with liberty. They stuck with the title of Liberals until some point during the time of President Obama when Hillary Clinton decided to distance herself from her former self and the liberals she had stood with because she had noticed that Liberal had become poisonous. Hillary Clinton came out stating that she was an early Twentieth Century Progressive Hillary stated plainly that, “Progressive has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century.” Yep, she had ditched liberal in 2007 and returned to being a Progressive, and not just any progressive, but an early 20th century Progressive. She was counting on nobody being alive who remembered who and what were the early 20th century Progressives were. Well, with the Internet and an ounce of curiosity, one can trace the early Progressive movement and realize that it was no different than the Liberals of the 1960’s and 1970’s. The main difference is now the Progressives instead of Fascists or Communists; they are romancing Islamists, just not terrorism, yet.

Jews Becoming Targets for Assaults Throughout the World

 

A Rabbi assaulted and killed on way to Shabbat Services in Florida while visiting relatives. The Rabbi was from New York City area. Elderly Jewish man died from wound resulting from one single punch to the head in suspected ‘Knock the Jew Out’ game attack, and struck head in resulting fall. Jews attacked in kosher deli and bakery Hyper Cachet in Paris as part of Charlie Hebdo attacks. Stabbings and vehicular assaults over half year result in thirty Jews murdered and over two hundred Arab deaths throughout Israel as well as in West Bank Areas of Judea and Samaria. Hate Crime Jewish victims make the news from throughout the world with many simply assaulted simply because they were Jews. The story is the same in places from around the world in attacks apparently because they were Jews and nothing more. Attacks are played down in attempts to assure residents of many localities partly so as not to excite fears in neighborhoods while police were quietly dispatched to guard Jewish day cares, schools and other facilities frequented by Jews.

 

In some attacks the hate crime angle was omitted from reports when reporting on events in what would later be determined to have simply intended to play-down the anti-Semitic angle and thus allow for simple police guards to effectively protect the Jewish neighborhoods while not drawing additional attention to large Jewish neighborhoods which usually exist in close proximity to the initial areas of these attacks. The deemphasizing, or should we just say ignoring, the religious targeting allowed for treating each as a singular event thus lessening any emphasis in the smattering of attacks throughout separate areas in United States, Canada, Europe and Israel. Seemingly Jews are not safe in a leading number of places and authorities in many locations simply are advising that they relocate leaving places where Jews have resided for centuries, even millennia. Much of this new wave of anti-Semitism is being driven by the legal and illegal influx of Muslims fleeing troubles and even open warfare in their former homelands. Terrorist groups such as the Islamic State, Hezballah, Hamas and the IRGC have been found to be behind much of the anti-Semitism seemingly sweeping the globe often with actual states sponsoring such activity in order to exacerbate an existing problem. The levels of hatred and acts of intolerance have surpassed once thought to be unsurpassable levels, especially in places frequented by Israeli youth for vacations after IDF service such as Turkey and places in the Egyptian Sinai. Not all of the anti-Semitism is a byproduct purely from Muslim nations as often it is found to be more traditional sentiment rising amongst native populations, especially across Europe.

 

 

Protesters in support of Palestinians in Gaza last weekend displayed a swastika at a Paris rally. The demonstration had been banned by the government and prompted deployment of police.

The most troubling facet of the neo-anti-Semitism has been the wide-spread rejection of Jews as an outcropping stemming from anti-Israel and anti-Zionist wrought violence and traditional stereotyping of Jews on many college campuses, some rearing its ugliness on campuses of leading institutions such as the California University System, City College of New York (CUNY) and throughout the Ivy League universities in the New England area which had long been a bastion of large Jewish student populations. The violence which has accompanied such demonstrations such as Israel Apartheid Week (month) and other demonstrations presumably protesting presumed ill treatment of Arab Palestinians by Israel which has manifest itself originally through fake eviction notices placed solely on Jewish student’s dorm rooms, fake Apartheid walls, mock-ups of Israeli checkpoints used to assault Jewish students and anti-Semitic tropes painted on Hillel buildings and predominantly Jewish fraternities and sororities. Seemingly nowhere is off-limits to such acts as even Brandeis University has had such incidents. Often university deans and authorities have apologized when demonstrations got out of control and caused harassment and even including assaults upon the Jewish students, many of which actually had taken part in the initial demonstrations against presumed Israeli policies. The most egregious demonstrations, too many of which became violent, have been in reaction to pro-Israel demonstrations and attempts to provide information of actual Israeli policies and the fact that Israeli society is fully integrated and that Arabs, both Muslims and Christians, have full rights and even serve in the government and hold high positions in the Israeli legal community, medical community, security position and all facets of Israeli life. The pro-Palestinian groups would too often run ransacking such displays destroying displays, burning literature and far too often assaulting the people manning such displays. These pro-Palestinian groups refuse debate and will do whatever is required to prevent the other side from ever being allowed to enter the debate using traditional brownshirt tactics of smashmouth style confrontations thus avoiding debate.

 

More often than not, the average anti-Israel demonstrators are instructed to never get in a debate about Palestine or the supposed rights of the Jews to have their own nation the same as any other groups worldwide. Instead their modus operandi is to prevent the Zionist and pro-Israel side from ever being presented often by threatening the university officials to uninvited such speakers. This has regularly been the reaction when people such as Bridgette Gabriel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Walid Shoebat, Nonie Darwish and other pro-Israel voices. These pro-Israel speakers often come with varied backgrounds as exampled by the four listed above but all have two things in common, they are great and knowledgeable speakers and they each have compelling stories. Bridgette Gabriel is a Lebanese Maronite Christian and Lebanon Civil War survivor and author of “Because They Hate” and “They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.” Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali refugee who was fleeing a forced marriage taking refuge in the Netherlands where she was elected to Parliament before controversy led to her being stripped of her citizenship. She fled ending up in the United States. She authored “The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam,” “Infidel: My Life.” “Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations” and “Heretic: Why Islam needs a Reformation Now.” Walid Shoebat is a Palestinian American, born a Muslim in the West Bank to an American mother and converted to Christianity now residing in the United States. He claims to have been a Palestinian terrorist who has changed his views after spending time in an Israeli prison and is now quite pro-Israel. CNN did an investigation of many claims made by Mr. Shoebat and was unable to verify much of his story which he claims was under a different name which he used in these activities researched by CNN. Nonie Darwish is an Egyptian-American human rights activist and critic of Islam, and founder of Arabs for Israel. She authored “Now They Call Me Infidel; Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel and the War on Terror,” “Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law,” and “The Devil We Don’t Know: The Dark Side of Revolutions in the Middle East.”

Anti-Semitism is often the final step which invariably rises from anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism as sure as summer leads to fall which leads to winter. When one denies the right of Israel to exist, they are claiming that the Jewish People do not have the right to living in their own country or have the right to self-determination as other peoples possess. This stems from the concept that the Jews are cursed by G0d to live as foreigners in strange lands always subject to the curses from their betters. They were to be driven from lands periodically or otherwise they might become comfortable and assume to having rights. Their work and discoveries are to be shared with their fellow countrymen. It was common through history that when things went poorly such as crop failure or disease, such as plague or influenza, the government and those in power can blame the town’s or city’s Jews and drive them from their lands and confiscate their property allowing them minimal possessions permitted to take with them. This ritualistic anti-Semitism is the main reason that anti-Semitism rises to generate periodic episodes and increases in times of stress. Anti-Semitism exists in both European societies and Islamic societies. The argument as to which group had a higher amount and which had a greater period of anti-Semitism all depended on where one sets the bar on anti-Semitism. Both Europe and the Islamic nations of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) had religious reasons they detested the Jews regarding the Jewish faith with disdain and believing their faith had rendered Judaism invalid. In the case of Islam they believed their religion has also caused Christianity to suffer the same fate as Judaism. They further believed that all other religions to be heretical at best and idolatry at the worst.

 

Perhaps a good idea for closing this article would be to define some of the precepts of Judaism and Zionism as best we understand them. This is where we make the caveat which points out that we are not rabbis or even rabbinical students nor do we have a college degree so please validate our facts as presented. The first item is that Judaism does not believe in proselytizing and thus do not attempt to push Judaism onto others or declare it the only or best religion existing. We simply claim it best suits our needs and that we take on the demands, commandments and obligations of being a Jew. Biblically there are six-hundred and thirteen commandments starting with the Ten Commandments. Jews do not require anything from people outside our faith living beyond our borders. Those residing in Israel we request that they follow the Noahic Codes (see below), seven commandments upon which one can base a civilized life. We believe we are to be a light unto the nations. In being such we believe we are to try and live lives of an exemplary nature and be role models for the world, an area we have often failed at in our day-to-day lives. We are to share any items, inventions and discoveries with the world at large. This would include cures for diseases, software and all other ventures. Yes, we can make money from such developments and inventions. We are to avoid wars except when defending our lands.

 

 

Noahic Codes

Noahic Codes

 

Our claims to land are basic and we do not seek to conquer the world for ourselves, Hashem or any other reasons. There is no real “Greater Israel” or an Israel from the Euphrates River or Tigress River to the Nile River. Our current demands if maximalists were asked would claim from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. The maximal lands ever controlled by the Jewish People were under Kings David and Solomon. The lands we were promised according to the Bible and their divisions between the twelve tribes had as our borders the same border as we have currently with Egypt with the Jordan River running down with tribes located on both sides as well as both sides of the Sea of Galilee (or the Kinneret) and the Mediterranean Sea as our western border. The final border would be the northern which was the Litani River (see maps below).

The Israeli claims to the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea stem from promises given by the British Crown which promised these lands in exchange for the other 78% of the British Mandate for an Arab state which became Jordan. When asked about a state for the Arab Palestinians, that would be Jordan, not half of the lands promised the Jews and Zionist Congress by the British and the League of Nations and presumably backed by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which recognized the British and French Mandates. The ideas are not that complicated until one gets to the desires of the world or at least the vast majority of national leaders and internationalist one worlders who all want the Jews stateless again knowing that if Israel falls then the Jewish religion and people will not survive another century and more likely the remainder of more than a handful of Jews survival will be measured in years, at best decades. The desire is to erase Israel and be rid of the Jews and their morality so the world can revert to the good old days of hedonistic bliss. What these hedonist seekers forget is that those days always resulted in war and mass murders. If one wants an example of the world without Jews all one need do is look to the Americas at the advent of the European conquest and one sees tribes, human sacrifice, barely surviving with food shortage always a problem and constant warfare between tribes. Maybe that is exactly what they desire, though for their sakes, I hope not. In the meantime, could the world just begrudgingly allow us our small plots of land and we promise to invent great things and share them and live by setting an example once we get our act together and we will not bother anyone much, honest.
