Looking at the world around us one has to wonder how it all got into the horrible state of affairs. There had to be a lynchpin which started the unraveling, an actual starting point which we can trace everything back to and find the culprit who made that initial error, mistake in judgement. But in order to do that one has to decide which of the unravellings we should start with as there are so many to choose from. There is Putin, or as we like to call him, Vlad the Invader (our original reference recently stolen by a Fox News commentator the erudite pontificator), who has shaken up parts of Central Asia and Eurasia and is threatening Eastern Europe, or at least there are some former nations swallowed by the Iron Curtain of the Soviet Union; there is China who apart from building a blue water navy with which not only to challenge the United States Naval hegemony of the seas, a privilege formerly owned by the British, but are also building Islands in order to cement her claims to the vast South China Sea and thus control or divert much of the sea lane traffic from the Indian Ocean in and out of the Pacific Ocean; there is the financial problems in Europe threatening the stability of the European Union and the adoption of one currency with the Euro; and the final and greatest roiling and boiling cauldron, the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA). There may be other problems out there but these are the most prevalent and easily identifiable.

 

Let us start with the easiest of these, the financial meltdown in Europe. This problem was a situation just waiting to happen as soon as the most disparate economic nations decided to adopt the same currency unit without permitting a central planning committee to set their financial and economic planning and other such decisions in-line with each other. There was absolutely no way the less productive economies of such nations as Spain, Greece and Portugal had any hope of paralleling the productivity, GDP and economic output of a France, Britain or Germany. Additionally, adding the former Warsaw Pact nations probably sparked an even more divergent economic growth rate as nations such as Poland, the Czech Republic, and others plus the reuniting of Germany allowing the already dominant economy to also feast on the same rebuilding and economic recovery from the less efficient economic model of central planning to a market driven economy which granted these nations a greatly exaggerated GDP during their basically playing catch-up with the rest of Europe and becoming modernized economies. Thus the Euro was a pipe dream which probably had hoped that through the singular monetary unit, the Euro, would lead to a centralizing of economic planning being turned over to the European Union to plan these different economies as if they were a single unit. That was highly unlikely as that would have spelled the demise of the nation states and rendered them merely states in the continental nation of the European Union. What the European Union bureaucrats were seeking was a situation very similar to a former economic model using the Union name, the Soviet Union, replacing Moscow with Brussels and otherwise retaining that centralized, top down dictatorial form of economic planning. The hope of having all the European nations of the European Union surrender that much power to centralized governance was an impossible and thankfully unthinkable centralization of power. This became first indicated when Great Britain took a vote of the people on whether or not to adopt the Euro and the people were clearly heard to say not without losing to an invading army first, otherwise reported as a resounding no and Great Britain retained the Pound but with time would accept the Euro but it would change in buying power as it performed against the Pound. The British model of accepting the Euro while retaining their own currency would very likely have been a far better solution considering what we know now. By allowing each nation their own currency while having them also accept the Euro as legal tender the individual national economic planning would have reflected in their national currency which could slide against the Euro while still having an exchange rate at which the Euro would have an established buying power. This way Greece could remain Greece and Germany could march to their own economic tune and both nations would accept the Euro but their economy would be reflected in the exchange rate which would be set in Brussels. That would provide each nation with its economic freedoms while granting the central control freaks in Brussels their power in determining the value of the Euro to the individual currencies.

 

Next, let us take Vlad the Invader and resurgent Russia. Here the answer is simple; things are as they were inevitably meant to be. Russia has always had that appetite to chew on and swallow the smaller nations around her and some more so than others. Georgia and the Ukraine both fall into the more so than others category. Eventually there would have come along a strong and imperialist charismatic leader, instead we got a shirtless man experiencing a middle age crisis and owning a Napoléon complex likely due to the shared attribute of being of diminutive size also known as vertically challenged. Thus we have Vlad the Invader slowly but inexorably making advances which could have been potentially limited in the Ukraine to the Crimea but there would have been no stopping Putin’s appetite for conquest short of tempting his readiness for war by admitting the Ukraine and any other Warsaw Pact nation into NATO as well as the European Union. Of course this would have had the effect of making any of these moves by Russia on its neighboring countries, or as Vlad sees these nations being simply escaped provinces to be reclaimed, and thus pushing NATO or the weaker European Union into backing their mutual self-defense claims of, to quote an oldie but still a goodie, their all for one and one for all defensive agreements contained in both the European Union and especially NATO. So this can be traced back to Putin’s training as a KGB agent merging with his Napoléon complex plus his nationalistic and simplistic view that Russia was dealt a cruel and unfair blow with the, as he sees it, calamitous and most disastrous and lamentable event of the twentieth century and that he was the individual given the extraordinary and heaven ordained duty to rebuild Russia to her full and former glory. As far as others fearing Russia, especially in that neighborhood, Vlad the Invader has succeeded in spades.

 

China is another historical hegemonic power in the Pacific Ocean or at least the western shores of the Pacific Ocean and at times the Indian Ocean as well. One has to remember that China used to have regular wars with the other great power of Asia, India, back when simple people power was a determining factor and has only in recent history run astride of hard times. Historically China has either been the regional power controlling all she could survey or China was broken into separate mini-states which often warred with each other thus diminishing their powers. The only other situation was when China was overrun or controlled by outside influences and she was in a slow but constant state of regaining her independence and eventually sovereignty over her invaders. China has been and remains the slow and patient survivor and eventual victor which one need but wait to see her resurgence. China has a long history of simply refusing to be cowed or defeated, merely witnessing a temporary inconvenience. China has relied on the winds of change always knowing that no matter what the calamity, be it outside invaders or internal misrule, everything changes and change is the one criteria which can be relied upon to render all things dust. China realizes that there are time when you are riding the crest of the wave and time when the wave has crashed down upon you and whichever end of that wave you find yourself, you will eventually find yourself at the other extreme so enjoy the best of times and remember them as a goal in the worst of times. For China time has been her greatest ally and greatest enemy but she also knows that time is her greatest weapon. China will rise and fall just as the ocean tides, just on a much longer cycle.

 

Then there is the Extended Middle East which incorporates the traditional Middle East and North Africa and often called MENA. We like Extended Middle East better. This area has always been a cauldron of swirling fates. One need do no more than read the Bible, the Old Testament, to realize the great swings of fate for all who resided in this area. There have been great empires which rose from next to nothing to greatness only to be blown away like the desert sands. Some of these empires blew away so completely that one is unable to find their descendants as it is as if they were snatched from the Earth itself. Probably the strangest of stories is the people of the Bible who only recently returned to their historic, ancient lands, Israel. However, this return has become the central story and burdened with the weight of responsibility for all the unrest anywhere on the globe and particularly throughout the Extended Middle East. Despite there being no actual or traceable root to the great turmoil destroying and potentially redrawing the map of the Extended Middle East to Israel, that has not prevented many from historians to political pundits to media reporters and even to governments and their agencies such as the United States Department of State from laying all of the blame at Israel’s doorstep.

 

The turmoil in the central Middle East is nothing new as it is the control point for all trade historically between three massive and divergent continents; Africa, Europe and Asia. This was the locations of a city-state which had no viable crop or natural resource and was hidden away behind a narrow splitting in a rock face and the city was entirely built into another rock face which had an outer clearing protected by tall rock walls and survived purely on trade and taking a percentage of all transactions. The city was Petra which finally and literally fell out of use after an earthquake made its further use untenable. But Petra was an indication on exactly how important the areas of the Middle East were for trade between the three continents. Tracing history in this area you find such names as Egypt, Hittite, Assyrian, Babylonian, Philistines, Minoans, Canaanites who worshipped such gods as Moloch and Baal, Persians and entering the more modern age, the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans and finally the French and British. Where to trace back the turmoil and near constant warfare of the Middle East, perhaps to Cain and Abel and the earliest recorded use of a rock as a tool of war. That might be a stretch but the earliest conflict likely predates writing by a sufficient amount of time that it also ceased being a part of the oral history and never got recorded just as the actual traceable location of Atlantis was never given (Pillars of Hercules and out in the great waters, like that helps).

 

But the recent difficulties and intermitted warfare both between nations and internal to nations is traceable to a particular intentional act meant to create just such internal strife and potentially these external wars in order to prevent the area from ever again uniting into the one promise the French and British had given to particular Arab tribal, nations and even clan leaders to persuade them into assisting them in their efforts against the Ottoman Empire during World War I, the reestablishment of the Caliphate, meaning the areas of the Ottoman Empire intact as a singular entity, and leaving these leaders as the ruling council and the ones who would choose the new Caliph. Instead, this promise was not only shattered but the lines drawn after World War I in both the Middle East and rest of the Ottoman Empire as well as the Austria Hungarian Empire in order to prevent there ever being a reunification thus preventing these powers from becoming preeminent and capable of starting the next conflagration. The division of the Austro-Hungarian Empire mostly achieved its purpose and the next war where it did arise out of Germany which was generally a previous part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and had only in the late 1800s gained its unified formation independent of outside control but not necessarily free of their influences thus leading to the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi efforts and Word War II. But in the Middle East we had the Sykes–Picot Agreement which made completely arbitrary borders without, or possibly intentionally ignoring, tribal lines and clans or any of the natural political alignments often splitting lands as in the case of the Kurds; who also were promised their own nation as were the Jews in separate agreements but instead the Kurdish lands were divided and became parts of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran; making each nation internally unstable. Iraq is probably the most well-known of these divisions which in the case of Iraq divided the lands such that the Shiites were predominant in the south, the Sunni predominant in the center and the Kurds predominant in the north. This forced each of these imaginary nations to eventually find that the only way to restore and keep the peace was the rise of a militant strongman willing to impose peace by force of arms such as was the case under Saddam Hussein. Say whatever you like about Saddam Hussein such as he was a butcher, a murderer and a hard tyrant with an iron fist, he kept Iraq from devolving into internecine warfare such as we are witnessing today.

 

The rest of the turmoil which we are suffering through today may have had a recent triggering event, namely the Cairo speech by United States President Barack Obama and his foreign policy which was centered around his campaign promise to end the wars and bring the troops home. Unfortunately for the majority of the people turned victims in the Extended Middle East, President Obama pulled all of the United States military personnel from both Afghanistan and Iraq prematurely as neither nation had developed the experience of the new governance nor the military ability to resist disorder while, especially in Iraq, the suppressed majority had some real and serious issues and grudges to settle with the minority who had ruled the nation through oppressions and they were out to get that revenge which tore the nation apart making it ripe for a force such as ISIS to tear into its midsection and even gain some support from the people there. The Sykes–Picot Agreement was designed to make the Middle East in particular and the Extender Middle East by division of who controlled what area which became independent nations with the arbitrary borders established by their respective colonizers, left the entirety of these areas as a tinder box simply waiting for that spark and it was likely the Cairo Speech and the enthusiastic attempt after the Tunisian vegetable cart vendor’s self-immolation and subsequent uprising in Tunisia being used as the trigger for President Obama’s attempt to redraw the Middle East around granting the Muslim Brotherhood preeminence over the region sharing control with Iran as the hegemon in the east and the Muslim Brotherhood in the west. Even had this plan succeeded it would have only set up a different state of conflict but this time with two very strong entities making for an even potentially greater struggle. The war right now is contained for the most part to the Greater Syrian conflict which includes ISIS and Iraq and the Iranian intervention, and the Egyptian struggle internally for the most part with the Egyptian military wresting control from the Muslim Brotherhood. The trouble in Libya is tribal and most likely to remain in Libya unless ISIS gets a firm and significant foothold and then there will be trouble as ISIS then moves to take all of Libya and begins their spread into Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria, but especially Egypt. History will likely eventually lay the blame for the current explosion of unrest and open warfare in the Extended Middle East to the United States meddling and doing so by proxy removing their personnel, especially military, from the Extended Middle East and stirring the pot so to speak and hoping for the best. They failed, or should we simply say the truth, President Obama really had no idea what he was attempting and misunderstood the players and nearly everything in the Middle East and almost every other foreign affairs which he has chosen action or inaction. Incompetence beyond measure being wielded by a self-indulgent, uninformed, narcissist with delusions of competence and wisdom that produces a boondoggle that only complete ineptitude, ignorance and delusions of grandeur could produce. I am sure there are other adjectives which would apply but for the sake of brevity shall we coin a new phrase and call such complete ineffectiveness which produces great conflagrations as doing an Obamy.

Dastardly Promises Following Formation of a Palestinian State

European Nations are falling in line either giving actual recognition to an Arab state to be carved out of Israel or recommending in a hollow but still highly symbolic votes by their parliaments of empty proclamations intended to persuade their Prime Minister to officially change their stance away from demanding that the only solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict be one reached by the reconciliation formed agreement in a formal treaty by the two sides. The European Union has been flirting with recognizing a new Arab state carved from Israel but has refrained from such recognition apparently waiting for a supermajority of the member states to formally grant their blessings recognizing that Arab state. The slow wave which has started in Europe will eventually inundate the continent and be adopted formally by the European Union as a response to the growing and oft violent population of young Arabs.

 

Emanating from Turkey, North Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan, these immigrants have begun to demonstrate, often with varying degrees of civil unrest and violence. Sometimes this violence is targeted at Jewish institutions including synagogues, kosher food outlets and other known Jewish owned stores and the stores which have a large Jewish patronage. The reasoning behind European governments kowtowing before the violent ‘Day of Rage’, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel demonstrations and taking stands against Israel is simple survival instinct which is present in more than individuals, but also found in national bodies, populations and entire nations and their governments. These recognitions were rooted in fear of continued violence from the Arab and Muslim populations and further inspired against Israel, as a byproduct, the nations’ Jews, because Arab Muslims tend to demonstrate, often violently. Alternately, Jews seldom demonstrate instead relying on their utilization of close contacts and direct influence trusting their friendships and relations with the numerous people they have known for some time and have built up a degree of confidence and who have proven their high degree of support for Israel and the nation’s Jewish population. History has proven that while many a revolution is inspired resorting to violence only sparingly, it is those who are willing to utilize violence who in the end take control.

 

Historically there are numerous examples where in the end those willing to utilize violence proved to win the hearts and minds of the people and came to power. Going back to the French Revolution you had two groups who desired the overthrow of the monarchy replacing it with a representative republic. The French Revolution is often referred to as having two distinctive stages; the first, which was by far less violent, was performed between the bourgeois and the nobility while the second, which proved to be very violent, pitted the proletariat fighting the bourgeois and executing to permanently destroy the royalty and the extravagances of the royal court. Eventually a government was formed around Robespierre and the use of the guillotine became prolific. Eventually even the members of the initial revolt are classified as enemies of the new governance; The Weimar Republic lasted briefly before their governance over Germany was replaced by the Nazi war machine. Similarly, the governance of Russia soon after they replaced the rule of the Czars with a representative government, it also was itself overturned by the Communist Revolution. Even the United States after gaining their freedom from Britain went through a phase of governance which failed called the Confederated States of America which failed and was rapidly replaced by the Constitutional United States of America and the rest is history.

 

You are likely asking what relevance this has concerning the formation of an Arab state to exist and provide independence for the Arabs between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea where there was presumably to be an Arab state beside Israel. The eventual governance for the Arabs in all of their claimed lands which would necessarily stand beside Israel was given a trial run when the Israeli government withdrew all Israelis living in Gaza as well as every last security and military presence intending that the Gaza would be the initial opportunity for the future rule should Israel depart all of Judea and Samaria allowing for this newest Arab governance to rule independently from any Israeli limitations, influences or interference. The Palestinian rule over this newest trial for Arab independent governance was soon violently overturned by Hamas who immediately forced the removal and surrender of the Palestinian rulers and replaced them with a terrorist run entity in Gaza.

 

Even now with the presumed unifying of the Arab state under the Palestinian Authority governance which itself is not legitimate as they have refused to stand for election of the top spot of chairman of the governance in Judea and Samaria. Further, the Arab state existing currently under a unity governance still has limited control over Gaza despite the presumed fact that Hamas has relinquished control there. What everything has presumably been set-up to provide was to be the governing Arab entity in Judea and Samaria with its capital city being East Jerusalem extending its rule of law to include all of Gaza replacing the current Hamas government. The evidence is that as soon as the Israeli security forces and Israeli Defense Force (IDF) were removed by undisclosed manner, then the Arab governance would very soon after this formation be assumed and placed under control of Hamas which would near immediately establish the terror-based governance in all of the Arab controlled areas. This would extensively be a training and launching pad for a new Arab terror based entity similar in some ways to Somalia with one clarifying difference, this time the terrorism would be forming on Europe’s doorstep. We have already witnessed this exact scenario subsequent to the Israeli disengagement from Gaza which resulted in Hamasistan and would be repeated simply on a larger scale should the European rush to recognize an Arab state immediately or even in the near future as the children have all been indoctrinated with a zealous hatred for Israel, the Israeli public and the Jews within most of all who also are trained terrorists, something proven almost daily within Israel and the territories it currently provides protection.

 

The world has witnessed the ineffectiveness that the presumably now terror free government worked and what the preference of the people was when they were provided the opportunity for self-rule. This reality has been rejected and a false truth put in its place. The world had demanded that any Arab state to be drawn from within the areas Israel possessed after the Six Day War, which was a defensive war brought upon Israel by the combined armies of Egypt and Syria through the strangling of Israeli maritime access to all of the Red Sea and through it to the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean and beyond, be one based on an agreement between the Arabs and Israel, a condition no longer enforced and regarded as having no real and tangible existence except as an entity which the Western world can feel comfortable leaving in charge of these lands in the name of the Arab population. Never mind that Hamas, financially backed by Qatar and armed by Iran and Hezballah, is the true and elected leadership of this Arab state being forced into existence regardless of any political or ethical blindness being practiced by the Europeans and knowing full well what the results will be once Israel is forced to remove her thus far legal troops and established cities, townships, farms, factories, vineyards, schools, clinics and other treasures as the Europeans seeing this will finally be ready to turn the keys of these areas in the presence of a terrorist entity capable and ready to assume leadership over the entirety of this newly recognized entity on their doorstep. Should it be a direct challenge of Israeli existence and be envisioned to be the entity which will bring forth the end of Israel as the Jewish state, then all the better. This little fact may be the main reason that so many across Europe are actually almost anxious to form next dysfunctional terror training and launching pad.

 

But wait, there’s more! There is another little disastrous secret being ignored just as was the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz, as he was pulling the levers controlling the visage of the all and powerful Oz. This little trivial item is the nearly six-million Arab refugees who have been the truly oppressed victims of the Arab perfidy and plotting. These unfortunates have been trained in UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) schools which are a front for military training and indoctrination done using American and European funds primarily. This near six-million man military force will be moved into Samaria and Judea vastly increasing the current population of the Palestinians and providing a ready army for the final push into Israel. Immediately after these near six-million refugees, actually the descendants of the original under seven-hundred-fifty-thousand initial refugees in 1949 after the war launched by over a half-dozen Arab and Muslim nations against the nascent state of Israel. These forces held genocidal intent which was averted only by the fighting spirit of these mostly Jewish forces fighting what is referred to in Israel by its sanitary name, the War of Independence. These refugees have the distinction of preceding the eventual forcing of Jews who in the end numbered over eight-hundred-fifty-thousand Jews forced from their home countries, some of which had lived in these lands longer than Islam has existed in this world. Their other difference is what distinguishes Palestinian Arab refugees, the little fact that these refugees are the children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren of the original refugees who inherited their refugee status and will, in good time, pass their status on to their children and over and over in perpetuity.

 

Upon the arrival of these refugees, the Arab governance will declare there is insufficient space to take in these refugees, who are, after all, entitled to their homes and lands within Israel across the Green Line which is the determining demarcation from the ending point of the 1948-9 war where Israel defended her inaugural coming out party followed the very next morning with a war intended to annihilate all of Israel which Israel not only survived but secured lands in addition to those she held at the initial point of the conflict. This in and of itself was one of the most astonishing miracles ever to be witnessed by mankind, yet at the same time there are conspiracies to erase such miracles, miracles one can witness daily if they only open their eyes and watch the world throughout Israel. These, they will say, are the returning refugees made homeless by Jewish theft of their homes and lands all within the boundaries of Israel. As such, it will be claimed these unfortunate refugees, whose families have so adamantly held to the dream of reestablishing their communities, will once again enjoy the benefits of ownership of their lands once again.

 

And then there are the hundreds of thousands of shekels owed each and every one of these refugees to compensate them to rebuild their home and farms plus hundreds of millions, potentially hundreds of billions, trillion or more to compensate them for their misery and pains of being held in substandard refugee camps not allowed to live as a normal individual and being cheated out of so much life and all the little treasures. Immediately the European Union and numerous European nations will petition the United Nations, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and any other agency or court which they believe holds powers to adjudicate the crimes and insults heaped upon these wretched unfortunates and to figure the debt owed these people by Israel and exactly what lands are truly owned and owed to these tragic figures. And lest we forget, think of the deluge of front page and above the fold pictures of the faces of young and old refugees crying tears of joy mixed with the tragedy of learning their family home has been destroyed or is now inhabited by another Arab or, potentially worse, a Jew and that their farmlands now sit beneath a mall’s parking garage. Oh the stories of great plights and sufferings which will accompany every edition covering this tragedy which just screams for the world to set everything right. So what if some Israelis will lose everything as that is only fair as they knowingly stole the lands on which they live and should simply be returned to the lands from which they arrived, let alone the fact that many of those Israeli Jews were born in Israel and have lived nowhere else.

 

Eventually the Europeans and the rest of the world will reach the sole solution to this tragic situation. It will be decided in international courts, the United Nations General Assembly, the United Nations Security Council and countless NGOs and Arab and Muslim organizations and political bodies that the best solution would be to force the Jews from Israel sending them to whatever nation will permit them residence and the lands of Israel should be granted to these refugees. The fit is near perfect as there are an estimated six-million refugees and Israel has just over six million Jewish citizens. Why do I get such a sinking feeling as we discuss a potential solution affecting six-mission Jews and at the hands of the European nations no less. The problem will be where these Jews will be accepted as they now pay the price for attempting to steal the birthrights to the ancient lands of these Arab peoples whose leadership has claimed have a nine-thousand year history of unbroken ownership of these lands and that they are not really of Arab descent but rather are the remnants of the Phoenician peoples. The one assured fact is that none of the European nations in all their fairness and humanitarian drives which served them so well in reestablishment of the Arabs to the lands they deserve will permit even a single Jews to be resettled within their borders. The end result may be six-million Jews living on rejuvenated World War II warships taken from numerous United States Navy ship graveyards and stripped of their guns and painted in bright and cheerful colors, after all it would be horrible to place these newly minted international refugees who have suddenly found themselves drifting in doubt as they are now a people without a nation. They will have become the new Palestinian people who have had their homelands stolen from under their feet.

 

And lastly, I would like to set one claim straight which I came across this past week. It was commented and simply then accepted as valid that the Palestinians are the sole people on the face of this planet who have been denied their own homelands. That is so patently false on so many levels. First and foremost; there are no such things and Palestinian people and those claiming to be such are merely Arabs from the nations surrounding the western quarter of the British Mandate lands. Further, about their exclusivity; let us just simply name a few people more unique and truly deserving of having their longstanding claims and demands for their freedom from being lorded over by some nation which views them as usurpers attempting to bring about the downfall of the real occupying nations. The Kurdish people were promised the return of Kurdistan by the British during World War I and immediately after until it came time to draw the borders of the Ottoman Empire which resulted in what should have been the Kurdish homelands we find those lands divided between Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. Then there is the small matter of Tibet and its Chinese conquerors. Free Tibet! Another such example is the Basques whose traditional lands have been divided between Spain and France. The Berbers also have had their traditional homelands usurped by the Arab and Muslim lands which resulted by the redrawing of so much of the globe, especially the efforts after World War I with Sykes-Picot Agreement which divided the lands liberated from the Ottoman Empire after their defeat in World War I by the French, British and Italian victors and signed into effect on May 9, 1916. This was not the sole redrawing of the world’s maps as the dissolving of the Austria-Hungarian Empire in east-central Europe led to a redrawing of a large swath of Europe after World War I.

 

Then there are the numerous peoples living as part of a larger entity which much of the world lumps it all together under one unit or name, such a Great Britain, while other nations have simply absorbed entire nations such as the numerous Native American tribes subsumed by the United States during their period of expansions and short diversion into colonialism. The same to a lesser extent could be claimed about Canada as one does not grow to include so much majestic and beautiful lands without crossing over a few boundaries, virtually every country on the Earth today displaced some peoples if one only goes all the ways back to even potentially some distant prehistory. Simply put, the Jews return to their ancient homelands are not throwing anybody out of their ancestral lands as that act was perpetrated almost thirty-five centuries ago when the Israelites (what Jews were referred to at that time as the term Jew comes from Judea which was the southernmost tribe which successfully resisted the attempts to conquer its lands) conquered the Promised Lands from the Canaanites whom they destroyed down to the last sheep as the Israelites were instructed presumably to completely destroy the Canaanites in a manner to cleanse the lands from their sinful ways and to satisfy the demands of the L0rd and to cleanse the lands of the sins committed.
