Beyond the Cusp

Islam is not the Problem, Islam is the Answer


When we talk about the refugee problem walking their feet across Europe, when we speak about a hard core group of people demanding that every governing body on Earth change their customs, change their laws, change their school curriculum, demanding the Judeo-Christian world turn everything upside down, and why all these impositions and so much more are occurring what is the answer? The answer is Islam and there is no problem in recognizing or even stating such is the case. When we ask what is the main source of terrorism in the world today, ask where the main threat to Western civilization comes from, ask what is behind most of the wars have at least one side driving them, and ask what is the driving force behind the world-wide increase in anti-Semitism, anti-Israel movement and anti-Zionist propaganda? The answer is Islam and there is no problem in recognizing or even stating such is the case. We could continue this little song and dance until we got to such trivial inconveniences such as taking of our shoes, watches, other jewelry, belts and hold our pants up while being zapped with more radiation than we have taken from any five year period in our lives in a machine which shows exactly how little we exercise and there is little else the person manning the machine ever really notices and play this to that extreme all aimed at the answer is Islam but we feel we have made our point.


What such an exercise as above is aiming at is that there is a problem with something in Islam that has the world all caught-up and turned inside-out and that is the real problem. The problem is not Islam as it is practiced by very probably one-billion-two-hundred-fifty-million Muslims out of the one and out of approximately one-billion-five-hundred-seventy-million Muslims total in the world today. That leaves a sizeable problem as that leaves three-hundred-twenty-million of what has been termed extremist Muslims who are driving, organizing and committing or having others over whom they have sufficient influence carry out terrorist attacks aimed at destroying our peace to such an extent that we will be willing to sacrifice any principle we may hold dear just to guarantee ourselves and our families and friends from the threat posed. This situation in which we find ourselves contemplating making sacrifices and other accommodations just to make life “safe” was foreseen by Benjamin Franklin, the closest of the Founding Fathers who could have qualified as a party animal, warned us of just such situations when he cautioned, “Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.” So, what is a worried and feeling threatened world to do?


The first thing which is necessary is to heed the warnings we are being given daily if we just seek them out. In order to seek them out we need to put some brave souls out there to do the legwork to discern what we need to know that the mainstream media might be glossing over in the name of political correctness, outright fear, avoidance of becoming a target as Charlie Hebdo and others have done and probably a myriad of other reasons both societal and legal. The nice thing is we each and every one of us can do our small part to keep ourselves and those in our social circles more involved and more knowledgeable on the threat in the world today from whatever source from toxins in our foods to workplace violence and extremists of any kind. The good news is there are some who could keep us informed on what is said in Arabic, Farsi and sometimes other languages as well reporting from one area which had had cause for upheavals which have been affecting the world more and more often as we move forward; and that is a groups named CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting) where even if you check their front page taking a new translation every say Monday, Wednesday and Friday and it will be remarkable how much more informed one can become in at most six weeks of this short but potentially vital regimen. Now that you are well on your way to becoming informed about many truths which you otherwise may not have known about, how about a sample of what we might find. I figured the best way would be to provide a montage which was prepared by Dr. Shmuel Katz in his editorial article titled Did The Free World Go Insane, and What Can We Do about It? For your convenience we will include his video below.





There is another small adjustment one need make if they are to understand what drives certain people and groups in our world today which is something the vast majority of us have thought simply absurd of an idea, world conquest. Believe it or not there are people and groups who envision themselves as the next Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great or Genghis Khan and actually appear, if not actually pressing forward with their plans to conquer the world or a good chunk of it if allowed the opportunity. One such person is Russia President Vladimir Putin (Vlad the Invader), another, though less obvious about it as his dream is reestablishing the Ottoman Empire and possibly then the world, is Recep Tayyip Erdogan and lastly there is the Ayatollah and Supreme Leader of Iran Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

People in the Western World have lived through three very serious changes to their civilizations what the rest of the world mostly has only experienced or are experiencing one or two of these cataclysmic changes which have made the Western World more cautious and less ambition or at least not likely to view world leadership as quite worth the sacrifices and carnage such a venture would require. The first was the Protestant Reformation which led to the concept of separation of religion and government where the government is no longer the supporter of any religion requiring their subjects to also be of the faith. In the West one is far less likely to hear the slogan “For G-d and Country” when engaging in a war. The second change was the industrial revolution which brought forth massive societal changes with less people required to tend to ever larger and eventually commercial farming leading to the urbanization of the workforce and the production jobs with the higher pay and thus standard of living leading to today’s megalopolis where one’s attachment is more workplace oriented than neighborhood oriented as the size of the cities and the work schedule make that less likely. The final change was World Wars and particularly how World War II came to a close with the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which made any worldwide conflagration out of the question because there was always the check of multiple powers possessing these horrific weapons thus keeping a guard against over aggressions. The threat of nuclear war had the casualty rate forward per year dropped precipitously after World War II and will continue to remain lower unless there is a conflagration involving the Western Word as well as Russia and China and there again is the recipe for carnage on an unknown scale until the lethality of nuclear weapons finally entered a stage where they became a weapon of choice in not only every national armory but also a weapon made or developed and available to terrorist forces who could place such a bomb into a cement truck to trash truck and drive it almost anywhere and use it as their nuclear drop-off bomb. This is the fear which should grip every cognizant person knowing the threats of the day and the fact that proliferation of nuclear weapons is very likely to begin worldwide. The most unfortunate idea is that nuclear weapons are a viable first strike weapon of choice for much of the world which includes MENA (Middle East and North Africa), South-Central Africa, South America, and much of East and Central Asia. The reality we face, with the soon to increase nations with nuclear capabilities, is simply frightening and the possibility that some of these nations who have already conducted assassinations and aggressions using terror forces might also present these terror forces with nuclear technology, or potentially an actual nuclear weapon to use in a targeted attack with unimaginable carnage the result, and that may be an attack on any number of cities as who knows how many nuclear weapons the world will possess outside of the ‘big five,’ will be beyond knowledgeable computation. Whenever there is a discussion of this nature there is the answer that Albert Einstein gave when queried as to what weapons would be like if there ever was a World War III. Einstein responded, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” That warning is one we must heed as a severe and honest warning and a suitable closing place.

The world is watching Netanyahu listening to every word, detecting every facial expression, watching his body language, gaging the intonation as he speaks, and critiquing even the slightest nuanced twitch, blink, wink, nod, and motion with a scrutiny that has no equal comparison. One would think the existence of the Solar System stood in the balance of what Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu says, how he acts, what he offers and even whether he smiles when he meets Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas and shakes hands. The highfalutin members of the United Nations are all lined up ready to pounce on the first presstitute that comes within their range in order to be among the first to critique exactly where Prime Minister Netanyahu went wrong, what he should have said, how much more land he would have been required to offer and every single piece of superfluous minutia explaining that Netanyahu once again blew a once in a lifetime golden opportunity to make peace if only he had done, given, offered, accepted or acquiesced one last iota to bring Abbas beyond the cusp and had him singing a peace accord. The leaders of the European Union and each European Leader and high government official along with the board members of the world’s NGOs are similarly chomping at the bit just to get a bite of the corpse of Prime Minister Netanyahu should he fail to stroke Abbas sufficiently to make peace. The leaders of the Arab World will chime in claiming if Netanyahu had simply accepted the Saudi Initiative in its entirety and surrendered the sovereignty of Israel to the Palestinian refugees from the four corners of the globe and turned every Jew, Christian, Bahá’í and other non-Muslim into Dhimmi status then there could have been peace and the Israeli Jews would no longer have the stigma of Apartheid hanging around their necks. The only problem which infects the reasoning of all of these people is the same disease that infects United States President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry, the phobia that Israel is at fault and the unfortunate and beleaguered Palestinians are blameless and truly seek only peaceful coexistence but they are denied their state and human status by an imperial Jewish State. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice displayed exactly the misconception that the Palestinians are blameless victims suffering under the oppressive cruel demeaning treatment by the Jews when she claimed she saw the suffering of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation as being similar to her experience of being black in the Jim Crow South of the United States in her youth. As long as the world takes that type of view or any view similar in nature they will not be able to see their way to the reality of why there has not been a peace reached between the Israelis and the Palestinians.


The reality is Prime Minister Netanyahu can offer any solution and no matter what is offered, if it does not bring about the complete destruction of Israel as the Jewish State and does not place every Israeli Jew into a second-class status, then it must be rejected by Mahmoud Abbas. Should Abbas ever accept a Palestinian State, even if it includes every square millimeter of the West Bank, Gaza and Eastern Jerusalem including the entirety of the Old City and the Temple Mount, he would be murdered within the first week as he would be seen as a traitor to the Palestinian cause which has nothing to do with a State called Palestine but has to do with the utter and complete destruction of the State called Israel. This has been proven over and over from statements straight out of the mouths of Palestinian leaders. It is due to such fears that Mahmoud Abbas has set his litany of preconditions making sure to include a number of poison pills which he knows that no Prime Minister of Israel could accept as to do so would mean the end of Israel as not only a Jewish State but as even being a location where Jews would be able to reside in safety. That is the purpose of the demand of Right of Return for approximately five million Palestinian refugees from every one of the camps which are located in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. It might be noted that a number of the Palestinian refugee camps within Syria have been shelled, bombed and attacked by the Syrian Army and other forces loyal to al-Assad mostly because most Palestinians are Sunnis. If one were to look at the maps used in the Palestinian schools, whether they are run by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, PLO, or UNRWA, they would find the maps show all the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea as being Palestine and there is no trace of Israeli existence. Many popular songs sung by young school children as well as broadcast on Palestinian radio and television list numerous cities which are within the Green Line as being Palestinian cities. The entire Palestinian culture is based around the concept of the total and complete destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Jews residing throughout the area. There is one well known fact that should cause people to pause and consider what this one undisputed fact implies. It is granted that there will be Arabs who currently live in Israel with full citizenship and full rights with Arabs serving in the Israeli Knesset, their parliament, and as doctors, judges, restaurant owners, business owners and every other job where they often work side by side with Israeli Jews, Israeli Druze, Israeli Christians and all have the same rights but any land that will go to form the Palestinian state must be purified and purged of every single Jew as there will be no Jews allowed to live within the Palestinian state and those who own lands will forfeit their lands one way or another. If a Jew were to make a stand and remain on their land in their home on land they have a deed of ownership, once the Palestinians took possession of their lands they would murder that Jew without remorse or even a second of thought. How can the Palestinian state be a democratic nation with rights as understood in much of the world if any Jew who ever set foot within their borders would be murdered immediately just as if he had entered Saudi Arabia, another nation where being Jewish is punishable by death? That is the state the Palestinians expect to bring into existence from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea cleansed of any Jews or any trace of ever having had Jews living on their lands.


Should the leadership of many world bodies and organizations, the leaders of the majority of nations and people in general were to suddenly decide to drop their blind detestation for Israel and the Jewish people and make an unbiased assessment of the Palestinian-Israeli peace process, they would immediately begin to look to Mahmoud Abbas and ask of him when he would actually be receptive to any reasonable offers for a peace agreement. They would stop judging any Palestinian leader or spokesperson when they speak in English, French, or any language other than Arabic (Farsi for the Iranians if this is to be applied to the entirety of the Middle East) and simply judge them by their words said in their native tongue spoken to their own people when they are amongst themselves. If you desire to actually see and hear what these people have to say, not just the Palestinians but much of the leadership within the entire Muslim World (one great example being Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Imam Qaradawi), visit CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America)MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute)PMW (Palestinian Media Watch) and Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) and be introduced to translations into English in the first three and a fresh and different attitude on Middle East and especially Israeli news and events in the final link. There is a reason why Israel gets the lion’s share of the blame and the Palestinians always seem to get sympathetic coverage by the press. In Israel the media personnel are allowed to go about their business and gather their information both good and not so good and report what they see warts and all. Most of the Press in the West Bank is controlled by Fatah and the Palestinian Authority while all the media in Gaza are strictly monitored by Hamas. In both areas no story gets filed without being approved and no camera footage or pictures are permitted to be put on the wire before getting them approved.


One famous incident of an unapproved media film being publicized reveals the entire censorship in place by the Palestinian leadership over the media. It took place in October 2000 when two Israeli reservists took a wrong turn and as a result entered Ramallah. The Palestinian police placed them in custody in an attempt to save their lives, an honorable act for which they almost paid for with their lives. They eventually had to turn the police station over to the mob who viscously and vilely murdered the two Israelis in one of the most horrific events in history. An Italian film crew working with Mediaset, Italy’s largest private television station, captured the entire event on film and relayed it back to Italy without first receiving Palestinian approval. Immediately after the film was aired the Palestinians knowing it was shown in Italy moved to expel and forbid any Italian media personnel. The deputy chief of Italy state television channel RAI located in Jerusalem, Riccardo Cristiano, published a letter of apology in the official daily newspaper of the Palestinian Authority as a mea culpa which was demanded by the Palestinian Authority before they would allow their reporters to return to the West Bank. Mediaset was banned after the incident from covering anything in the West Bank areas under Palestinian Authority control. That is the difference, Israel you can cover everything while in the Palestinian controlled areas the media have minders or use stringers supplied by the Palestinian Authority or Hamas, depending on the location, to report the news. That restricts what is seen in the world as the truth of events, statements, and virtually anything else that is presented to the world as honest reporting on the Palestinian areas and their leadership. It is just as bad if not worse than believing Pravda during the Cold War when researching the Soviet Union or the United States.


All that taken for what it is worth, the truth is that all the fuss and bother being reported coming from those in Israel who are worried that Prime Minister Netanyahu might be willing to give away the store really do not have much to concern themselves with. Even if the rumors are true and Netanyahu will offer to surrender ninety percent of the West Bank territories to Abbas with land swaps making up the remaining ten percent, Abbas will not accept the offer as it is nowhere near all-encompassing enough. These worried Israelis only need worry that Abbas might have something in mind where he believes he can take that offer and parlay it into having the United Nations grant him the remainder by forfeiting the original United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 passed on November 29, 1947. That was the resolution which called for the original partition which would have split the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea evenly between a Jewish state called Israel and an Arab state called Palestine. The Jewish state was largely made up of the Negev Desert which encompassed two-thirds of their allotted lands while the Palestinian state contained the Galilee farmlands, the most fertile land which currently is within the Green Line and is Israeli owned. The Arabs refused this offer and declared war on Israel a few months later on May 15, 1948, the first day after Israel was founded the evening before. The result of this war which the Arabs referred to as a war of annihilation that would bring on the genocide of the Jews in Israel actually resulted in Israel gaining all of the Galilee and gaining a fair amount of territory. The armistice lines from this conflict became the Green Line which is also called the 67 Lines. This was the War in which Jordan gained the West Bank, Syria gained the Golan Heights, and Egypt gained Gaza. Those were the Arab occupied lands which Israel liberated in the Six Day War of June 1967. That war was in response to the Egyptian blocking of the Straits of Tiran which was considered a casus belli. After Egypt and Syria massed troops and tanks in attack formation on Israel’s northern and southern borders and President Nasser was heard on radio and television claiming their armies would push the Jews into the Sea, Israel launched airstrikes on the Egyptian Air Force striking most of the planes still on the ground. Jordan joined the assault on Israel despite Israeli warnings and pleadings not to as Jordanian King Hussein thought the Israelis were lying when claiming the Arab forces were being beaten and instead believed the Egyptian and Syrian claims of massive victories and attacking the outskirts of Tel Aviv. Each Arab nation lost the areas they had occupied since the end of fighting in 1949 and Egypt also lost the entire Sinai Peninsula. And, as they say, the rest is history, or in this case, history still being made.
