The Leftists of the World have united with a fair number amongst their ranks and strewn widely within their leadership including well paid traitors in Israel itself. Their operations have led to the demolitions of Jewish residences across Judea and Samaria. Making matters worse, they have succeeded in removing any claims to Jerusalem by bending governments to make all babies born in any part of Jerusalem to be denied having the nation of their birth as Israel, even should they have been born in Western Jerusalem well inside the Green Line, the 1949 armistice line which it was Yasser Arafat’s wildest dream to alter that truce line and move it inexorably westward starting with Jerusalem and its surrounding area. Arafat knew that without Jerusalem, and particularly the Temple Mount, the Jews would have no claim to any of the lands known as Israel. This concept of a free zone in Israel within the Green Line a child can be born and if on their birth certificate it states legally and honestly that they were born in Jerusalem, Israel they cannot get passports from the United States or now from Brazil. This is presumably uncontested lands which have been a part of Israel since its founding and at all times after the Armistice Lines had been defined. But that is no longer sufficient and we can bet as sure as this has become the policy by the Brazilian government and the United States government thanks to some fancy footwork by none other than the Arabist, Islamist, Communist infested Department of State that it will soon sweep across Europe including the European Union as well as the individual national governments until the entirety of the West will no longer recognize Western Jerusalem or any part of Jerusalem to be used officially as part of Israel. Thus far there has not been any child born in Eastern Jerusalem to apply for a passport from either Brazil or the United States requesting their place of birth be Jerusalem, Palestine. I am even willing to bet they could have been born in West Jerusalem in the Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem and received passports stating place of birth as Jerusalem, Palestine; but not Israel.

 

The plan is very simply, if the property in question is east of the Green Line all any leftist NGO needs to do is find an Arab who is willing to claim that the lands in question were a part of his or her family’s lands and sign a petition claiming the lands belonged to their family and then the NGO need not show deeds or any other document beyond that claim and the land becomes contested. The Arab claimant need never appear in court, produce any further documentation for the court and the NGO only need to sue the court with the document recognized formally by the courts and the Jews on that land are forced from their residences and even should they produce actual deeds and receipt for payment of the lands they will still have an uphill battle and often the destruction order is carried out before they are able to churn the wheels of justice. Once the property had been razed of any buildings and the residents or businesses have been relocated, even if the relocation is to storage containers, the courts then consider the matter closed as they have carried out their legal standings in these fraudulent proceedings. This has been the procedure followed in Beit El where small sections are stolen through the courts and the structures on them torn down.

 

This is currently occurring in the community the Givat Ze’ev where their Synagogue is currently scheduled for destruction in just under a week on August 17 unless the court can be convinced that the deed and sale of the land was procured legally and from the person currently petitioning or their family or the actual legal owner. This is a Synagogue which has served the community of Givat Ze’ev for the past twenty years. The court order screams of scandal as the community has a deed and bill of sale and only after an intervention by Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was the demolition put off for a week and prevented from being carried out before the community can produce their presumed legal bill of sale and other accompanying documents they may have showing legal ownership. Meanwhile, the current state of affairs can be viewed below depicting the preparations for the destruction of their Synagogue of twenty years. Such an act tears the heart from a community and renders a major bonding element torn asunder and destroyed. One can only pray for their petition to be honored by the court otherwise their removal of the Torah scrolls this week may be the sign that the community’s heart will be destroyed and finding a proper place at which to build its replacement will start immediately. The presumed owner for whom the petition was filed has refused a generous monetary offer to buy the lands from them as well as having bought the land from another presumed owner who actually possessed and produced the deed for the land over twenty years ago. This petition was not filed for the presumed Arab owner of the lands to use it for any purpose; the sole reason is to destroy the Synagogue and hopefully the community’s disintegration will follow. This is an act of wanton destruction and not of justice. {One need view the video in full-screen setting to see the entirety of events.}

 

 

 

 

This has been the modus operandi used by NGOs which either are rooted in Europe to operate as the agent of the government in many instances or as the legal arm of a European NGO. Even the registered Israeli NGOs which are engaged in filing such petitions receive the majority, even the vast majority or complete funding, from European and North American donors almost exclusively. Many of these NGOs attempting to operate in any other nation would be required to register as what they truly are, foreign agents, and thus be limited in their legal ability to use the courts as has been done in too many instances in Israel. The aim of this legal offensive is not to restore land to rightful owners and not even to destroy Jewish ownership of these lands as some times Jewish ownership was restored after long struggles in the courts where actual deeds are required to prove ownership. But what actual good does it do if your Synagogue, your home, your place of business even if it is your entire business is destroyed. Who had the ready monies to rebuild their lost structures that the courts, particularly the Supreme Court which, unlike nearly all other nations, can hear any complaint and there is no requirement that the petitioner go through the lower courts to be heard before the Supreme Court which can and often will issue destruction orders without any evidence of actual ownership as that is only required in the lower courts where the actual ownership will subsequently be determined.

 

The battle to erase the Jewish presence centimeter by centimeter continues apace with no defense being provided by the government to require these cases be heard in a lower court where deeds and other ‘insignificant’ ideas such as actual ownership and holder of a legal deed and bill of sale which names the price and from whom the lands were purchased. The reason the Supreme Court intervenes in this manner is based on the fact that should a bill of sale be produced that whomever sold the lands might be tried for such a blasphemous act against the people and imagined state of Palestine and once found guilty, that takes about two minutes, hung from a crane in the middle of town for all to witness and heed the warning, The Supreme Court hearing the case removes the potential possibility that the person selling the lands originally does not have their name appear on the order for destruction and remains anonymous and unstated in the destruction order thus protected from the courts in Ramallah. For the presumed safety of a person who would face trial and capital punishment for selling their lands legally to another who was Jewish allows the very left leaning Supreme Court to adjudicate the matters directly and order the destruction without naming any names of who may have originally legally or as a scam sold the lands to Jews.

 

An entire community will have their Synagogue of twenty years torn asunder will need to find a place and the funding to build for them a new Synagogue and restore the heart of their community and like any transplant surgeon will attest, the new organ, the new Synagogue will never quite have the same feel as their old Synagogue even though they will soon learn to love the new one once it gets built. All of this destruction may only be the beginning as very possibly the rest of their community, including their residences of twenty years and more in many cases, in groups or twos and threes or even entire sections as once a single piece of the community’s lands, or any community’s lands, have been used to set the precedent, the procedure is repeated with new or the same petitioner making the claims and the Supreme Court following their precedent set in place which, if attempted to be struck down by the Knesset, the Supreme Court simply ignores the pronouncement declaring the Knesset irrelevant in changing this procedure as the Supreme Court is operating under the presumption that whichever Arab originally sold lands to Jews are threatened by their semi-autonomous government’s own laws and courts which will provide them with a very quick trial before hanging them from a crane, ala Iran, and let them serve as a proper cautionary threat as the personification of the threat for selling lands to the Jews.

 

Such disasters have almost become commonplace and often smaller destructions of a single home or two or possibly as many as four or five appears to make a tripping point where the news travels outside the community and makes its way into the Zionist, Nationalist and some of the balanced media. The reason likely has to do more with the numbers of protesters any such destruction draws. An example which we covered of a destruction ordered by the courts in Beit El even before the structures were even completed was in an article titled Beit El a Case of Promises Against Facts contains much information with pictures, a video and a link to further coverage by Arutz Sheva. Those buildings were to be apartments for Israelis, potentially Jews or Arabs, bordering on frantic and desperate to locate an affordable residence within half hour to hour commute into Tel Aviv and its expanded work environment. Despite the facts detailing Beit El as a sufficiently large metropolis where there are ample jobs within the community, though not sufficient to employ everybody, the loss of these buildings will impact the community and leave many living under the roof of the family leaving everything cramped and uncomfortable and which was intended to be temporary. This misfortune has played out over and over most significantly after the Disengagement from Gaza and Northern Samaria ordered by the government under Prime Minister Sharon which included amongst other demolitions the destructions of Gush Katif. This was a bloc of twenty-one Israeli settlements in the southern Gaza Strip which also served as the prevention and defense from rockets being fired into Israel and the development of larger and more destructive rockets being designed and built as these communities permitted the IDF a base for operations within Gaza which also ended with the disengagement.

 

Temple Institute concept for what building the Third Temple in modern day Jerusalem would appear like from a distance with modern buildings of Jerusalem in the background. May their vision and this concept figure become fact and fulfill our desires for unity and a single Temple and House for Hashem in our midst. May this dream be fulfilled before the next Ninth of Av so our lament will be lessened.

These orders are made by Judges and brought before them by NGOs all of which have the same interpretation of the situation where they agree with the Europeans’ and leftist Israelis’ view that if only Israel would return to within the Green Line and gave into the demands of Mahmoud Abbas and the Arabs then peace would break out and the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea would be greeted the very next morning after the signing ceremony on the White House lawn with flowers and rose pedals falling from the sky and soothing and joyous music on the soft and warm winds. If such were possible every last Israeli would be engaged in providing the refugees from beyond the Green Line into our homes in the name of peace, but that is not what will occur and we know this from history and from the words which come from Abbas and the rest of the Fatah leadership’s mouths. The reality is the Israelis could expect within a few weeks, months at the most, that Mahmoud Abbas would be begging Israel to grant him asylum as Hamas or ISIS will have taken control of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and were planning on putting him on trial for treason for signing the agreement and thus basically selling land to the Jews. The United Nations, the European Union, the Vatican, the United States (especially the State Department) and countless others from NGOs to human rights groups to University Professors and celebrities when approached to give him a place to settle down where he might feel safe, all these entities would suddenly go mum. At the same moment any Jew found at the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) would be shot and the entirety of the lands beyond the line in Jerusalem would be a no man’s land for Jews. Within days anybody living with windows facing any hill in East Jerusalem would need to relocate, as snipers with .50 caliber heavy-machineguns would be placing bullets through the rooms and hallway almost making it out the far wall, placing anybody living in the house endangered. How can we predict this? This was exactly the case up until June 8th or 9th 1967 as the Jordanians insisted on sharing the spoils of war as the radio reported the Egyptian and Syrian troops were swarming across Israel and for two days were at most three hours from taking Tel Aviv. The Israelis begged Jordan to heed the warning that the Egyptian and Syrian communications were false and they were being readily defeated. The rest will make the history but as of yet it is still being written. May it be written that the foolish and the brave both found peace with each other as well as with Hashem for without Hashem Israel has no heart.

Like all Israelis and Jews worldwide, my sympathies go out to family, friends and those who knew the young soldier mercilessly murdered at a Tel Aviv train station just as they go out to the family, friends and those who know the innocent young lady mercilessly slaughtered at a ride-stop located in Gush Etzion, which is within Samaria. Both of these young Israelis who represented the epitome and strength of the hopes of a nation and their people will be avenged and their lives celebrated by the continued persistence and eventual vindication and liberation of all of our sacred homelands. There was one disturbing item about the reactions of some to these two related and identical threats to the Israeli people and nation. That was the appearance of initiations that these two deaths were somehow different and that the soldier being murdered in Tel Aviv was somehow a greater threat to Israel than the other which occurred beyond the 1949 Armistice Line and thus was just one of those events which we must suffer because of the ‘occupation’. Truth be told, the Palestinians are no different than the Egyptian, Jordanian, Syrian or Iraqi peoples as they are all Arabs with the same culture, language, religions, lineage and histories and the idea of a separate peoples known as the Palestinians did not come into existence until 1964 when they were manufactured out of whole cloth. One does not have to believe me as the following quotes will show.

 

First Quote) In a March 1977 interview in the Dutch newspaper Trouw, Zahir Muhsein, a member of the PLO executive committee, admitted, “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

Second Quote) Auni BeyAbdul-Hadi told the Peel Commission in 1937. “There is no such country as ‘Palestine’; ‘Palestine’ is a term the Zionists invented!”

 

That put aside, there is no reason for any Israeli, or any Jew for that matter, to place any iota of a difference between Israelis within or outside the 1949 Armistice Line as it is only the demand that any future Palestinian state the Arabs manage to wrest from the body of Israel be free from any Jewish presence that makes the existence of Jews beyond that line of any importance. Further, if one takes the Palestinian stated intentions at the continuously expressed word then Tel Aviv is just as much a part of ‘occupied Palestine’ as is all the lands of Judea and Samaria. It is their definition of all the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as being all of ‘occupied Palestine’ that makes everything within that definition, and not just Judea and Samaria, part of their reason for violence and terror war against Israel and why Mahmoud Abbas and every other Palestinian leader refuse to agree that any peace accord made with Israel, despite it granting them lands for their presumed purpose of self-determination and independence, will signify an end to their violence and acts of terror in making war on Israel until the entirety of their lands are liberated. It also does not matter to them that the only truly occupied lands do consist of Judea and Samaria and are occupied by them just as it was occupied previously by Jordan and not only do the Palestinian leadership understand that truth, as do the rest of the Arab leadership, the rest of the Muslim leadership, the whole of the European leadership, the whole of the United States leadership, the whole of the Canadian leadership (and at least their government acts on that knowledge and for which I would like to thank them as they deserve the thanks from every Israeli, Jew and lover of Israel), the whole of the United Nations (including all of its various tentacle agencies, courts, conferences, rapporteurs, committees, and other entities) and the majority of educated people worldwide. The sole reason that this exceedingly established set of facts does not quiet the arguments for the liberation of the ‘Palestinian homelands’ is due to the overriding desire to undo what so many, especially the European powers who attended and ratified the San Remo Conference findings and conclusions, across the globe believe to be the greatest error in judgment ever committed by seemingly intelligent people when they made the promise in treaty and obligation to return the ancient lands of the Jewish People to its rightful owners with particular attention to the established fact that between the time of the Roman dispersal of the leaders and armed Hebrews to the ends of their empire to the present time no nation had ever claimed these particular lands to be their sovereign lands nor had any nation or interest named Jerusalem to be their capital city. That is the ugly little and unspoken secret at the heart of the entire effort to make a ‘Palestinian state’ out of the body and ancient heartlands of the Jewish People. This also makes Tel Aviv just as much of ‘occupied Palestine’ as it does Hevron, Shechem (aka Nablus), Beit-El and all of the rest of the lands of Judea and Samaria (aka West Bank, the name given these lands by Jordan when annexing them to remove their traditional and Jewish related original and historic names) are despite the apparent desire by some in Tel Aviv to try and differentiate between those places outside the 1949 Armistice Lines (the Palestinian plans step one) and those lands within the 1949 Armistice Lines (the Palestinian step two) with nary a real difference should the Palestinians ever achieve their true goals.

 

Additionally, there is another truth which is often ignored between times when the northern border of Israel is seemingly relatively quiet with only the occasional disturbance such as exchanges of fire between the two sides, an explosive device being detonated in attempts to murder IDF or other passing Israeli vehicles or the probing infiltrations testing the IDF response times and severity. This truth is the claims by Hassan Nasrallah and other Hezballah spokespersons that the Galilee is an area which Hezballah is capable of taking with a minimum of effort and that the IDF is incapable of preventing as the Galilee is presumably part of Lebanon and also rightfully the southern lands of Syria of which Lebanon is only an autonomous part. This claim to the Galilee is identical to the claims to all of Israel by the Palestinians, completely false and attributable to titles granted the regions between Turkey and Egypt. These general names for this land mass include but are not limited to Syria, Greater Syria, Syrian Province, Judea, Israel, Samaria, Transjordan, Jordan, Palaestina (Roman name mistaken pronunciation of the Jews main historic enemies, the Philistines), Assyria, and Canaan as well as simply being a province within such empires as Babylon, Greek, Roman, Persian, Ottoman, Zengid, Hamdanid, Byzantine, British, French, Egypt, Hittite, Mongol and Caliphate. Despite all of these empires and names given this small area in the Middle East, only the Jews ever claimed Jerusalem as their capital city which was true even under the title of Judea. Despite the historic facts, the leader of Hezballah, Hassan Nasrallah, has made claims and restated his claim recently for the annexation of the Galilee by right of military conquest to the fertile valley of the Galilee once his forces have routed the Israelis. Needless to say, the real target of Nasrallah is not simply the Galilee but to all of Israel even to include the areas currently under semiautonomous control of the Palestinian Authority and probably Gaza from Hamas as well. Before anyone attempts to correct my mention of Gaza being under the rule of Hamas and claiming it is under the unity government of the Palestinians, we all know it is ruled by Hamas and that should Mahmoud Abbas or any other Palestinian Authority leader or member desire to leave the comfort of Ramallah and visit Gaza they would need to procure the permission from the previous Hamas leaders, particularly Ismail Haniyeh, or face a death sentence and summary execution without even the semblance of a trial. Should Nasrallah once again attack across the Israel-Lebanon border, his aims would not be solely to subsume the Galilee region but to also take Jerusalem, the Negev Desert and even Tel Aviv. No Arab or Muslim force which managed to gain the advantage and defeat the IDF would stop at the Tel Aviv city limits and say, oh, wait, this is Tel Aviv which is completely separate and different from the West Bank, Galilee, Negev and every other part of Israel, it is the one place in the whole universe which is recognized as belonging to the Jews and we have no prior or false claim to which we can point as to why it does not belong to Jews so we had better leave it alone. Believe it or not, Tel Aviv in not inviolable and distinct from the rest of the lands claimed not to belong to the Jews, it is just as much a target as the rest of Israel, even my little corner here on the coast of the Galilee. We should and must mourn and defend to the best of our abilities every Israeli, be they Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Baha’i, Buddhist or other religion or identifiable origin or, as Benjamin Franklin warned the Continental Congress at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, “We must hang together, gentlemen…else, we shall most assuredly hang separately.” It applies to all of us within Israel, we too must hang together or we will hang separately.

The News AIPAC Will Not Hear From Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently in the United States where he met with President Obama where it is assumed he was heavily pressured to announce and enact a building freeze and anything else that Abbas whines and demands while President Obama hurries to satisfy. Netanyahu will then address the AIPAC Conference where he will avoid giving any news that would be overly depressing while reaching extremes to sound a positive and hopeful picture. Where the Prime Minister might recount about some of the terrorist acts suffered by Jewish residents, especially those living beyond the Green Line but will he also mention the spread of terrorist attacks on Jews in Jerusalem and even of late in Tel Aviv. Will the Prime Minister speak of the rock attacks and the fact that in too many incidents there have been infants and children below four years old with at least one fatality and others permanently crippled left without any future? Will he tell of the attacks of this past week where Palestinian Arabs have assaulted Beit El throwing firebombs which landed within the security fence within mere meters of homes, none of which fortunately caught fire but that is only by the grace of G0d. Even the media here in Israel has turned away from reporting any news that pertains to terrorist attacks, especially when the victims are the Jewish settlers these media outlets believe are living on Palestinian lands. Will the members attending the AIPAC Convention hear that there are two Israels, one Zionist and the other willing to surrender anything believing that doing so will pacify the Arab hatreds? Will the Prime Minister challenge the American Jews to stand with Israel and take the extra efforts to prevent President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry from pressuring Israel in their efforts to support the Palestinians? I hope he will tell the conventioneers the truth about Iran and that Iran is likely producing atomic weapons as he is speaking and that the United States is in as much peril from this as is Israel. Will those attending his speech believe and accept these warnings should Prime Minister Netanyahu inform them of these troubling truths or will they return to their lives feeling they had done their part to support Israel by writing checks and attending the AIPAC Convention.

 

The world has become far more dangerous in the past decade and appears to promise that this trend is only going to continue with ever greater speed. Much of the Arab world is either in crisis and active turmoil or is very likely to fall into strife once Iran has reached what they have set as their conditions for their breakout on their way to spreading their reach across the oil fields and cementing their preeminence in the Muslim world. Meanwhile President Putin is making his bid to expand Russian hegemony and guarantee Russia has a warm water port at the tip of the Crimean Peninsula. Further around the globe there are the Chinese who are constructing a blue water navy with the announced aim to supplant the United States in the Western Pacific Ocean. Add to this fact the extension of their territorial waters which paralleled their claiming two disputed islands which much of the world recognizes as belonging to the Japanese. How much longer before China decides to reunite Taiwan by whatever means necessitated? Almost everywhere one looks on the globe there are fires raging or threatening to become yet one more conflagration. All of these world difficulties and much of it can be traced directly to a weak presence, if any, of the United States in the world. President Obama’s charm and go along to get along method of addressing international relations is not accomplishing any of the promises he gave as the reasoning for United States timidity on the world stage. President Obama has accomplished more than any previous President in removing American influence which has permitted every bad intention appear to be requiring a herculean effort to turn back around. This is all due to vacant American influence which has stood for order and the rights of individuals and the fair treatment of nations and people. Without a strong American presence these ideas wilt and that is the result we are witnessing. The question is will the United States reawaken in time or has the United States permanently taken a vacation from leading allowing the world to spin off into unchartered and dangerous waters.
