Gun Controls Are On the Political Horizon

 

The Republican Speaker of the House, who was once upon a time the darling of the leading edge conservatives in the party and was a name to run for President, came out and claimed that Republicans are open and considering possible limitations on limiting accessories and possibly types of firearms. We have included the video below for your viewing displeasure or pleasure, depending on your views. Before you run to the video, allow us a few comments. Paul Ryan was accurate to some extent when he pointed out that fully automatic weapons have been banned for a long time, well, almost correct. Fully automatic weapons, like explosives and rocket launchers, require a Federal Firearms License (FFL) weapons permit which requires a series of steps depending on what types of weapons one will be dealing. So, they are not illegal, just very difficult to own and there are special fees and taxes involved in ownership or dealing in such weapons which can become onerous. But then Speaker Ryan states something interesting, namely that he was not aware of such things as bump stocks until this week. Well, allow us to admit that we too were ignorant about such accessories for rifles and other weapons. Speaker Ryan then expresses the idea that a bump stock can take a normal weapon and make it fully automatic fire rate. We did something that the Speaker of the House has apparently not done, actually bothered to read into bump stocks and what they actually do in aiding in the use of a firearm. Wikipedia defines “Bump Fire” as the resultant effect of using a bump stock thus allowing, quote, “The act of using the recoil of a semi-automatic firearm to fire shots in rapid succession, which simulates the ability of a fully automatic weapon.” That is they allow one to simulate, not actually become a fully automatic weapon fire. Now, before delving deeper, here is Speaker Ryan and MSNBC News.

 

 

Now, we looked a little further into bump stocks ourselves and what is about to be stated are our reactions and interpretations of what the use of a bump stock does and does not permit. First, if you are an amateur gun enthusiast whose main firearms use is plinking at targets once every month or so with some friends, then a bump stock will allow you to look ‘kewl’ shooting at the range. With some practice, it, along with the practice, allow you to be more accurate. With a whole lot of practice, it will also aid your rate of fire significantly. So, what exactly is a bump stock and how does it work. It is a recoil-absorbing tool which allows for better accuracy allowing the entire rifle to slide directly backwards when fired. The theory is if one can keep their finger exactly where the trigger-pull fires a bullet, then upon return another round will fire thus mimicking full automatic. This mimicking is exactly that, as you still must have trigger pull for each individual shot fired. Yes, you can, with practice, increase your rate of fire but will suffer a lower accuracy. With some patience, the bump stock can aid accuracy by absorbing recoil allowing one to remain on target between shots requiring less adjustment as recoil is absorbed by the stock as well as the normal recoil mechanisms of the weapon. The Las Vegas shooter was not as concerned with accuracy as he was firing at a mass target, the crowd at an outdoor concert. This means he was able to use the bump stock to fire more rapidly sacrificing any actual target acquisition. He was simply spraying rounds into a large mass of people and hoping for the worst. Firing from the thirty-second floor of Mandalay Hotel into the concert crowd spread out over an acre or more area. The people below were little more than dots running in every direction and he was likely not actually choosing targets with the majority of his shots fired. Military personnel have a name for such firing; they call it ‘spray and pray’ when one simply puts rounds out hoping to hit something, anything of the enemy or of his targets. But now let us talk about the CNN screenshot below used to announce Speaker Ryan’s startling readiness to consider some form of firearm control and especially the banning of bump stocks as they, he falsely claimed, can make a firearm fully automatic fire, remember, falsely stated.

The weapon they used in the graphic was deliberately chosen to frighten anybody who is completely devoid of any actual firearm knowledge. Let us count the ways the weapon depicted is illegal for the average firearm owner. There is one very nice sound suppressor, often referred to as a silencer, on the end of the barrel. It would be next to useless which we will explain in a little while. That stock is an adjustable stock which can be made longer or shorter in order to fit a person of any size. The scope is a military styled scope. But here is the clincher, the tube under the barrel would be a grenade launcher which would make the firearm a military weapon and definitely not legal to own without an FFL license (described above). The weapon pictured above is a wonderful weapon which if society ever fails I would love to have with me. It is also probably select fire rate including single shot, three round burst and full automatic. The M203 grenade launcher fires 40mm grenades including White Phosphorous, High Explosive, High Explosive Anti-Tank and Flechette amongst others (see image below).

The problem with a sound suppressor on that particular weapon is that, without special sub-sonic ammunition, the round leaving the weapon will exceed the speed of sound, thus making a distinctive and very loud ‘crack’ upon hitting the air and breaking the sound barrier. There is no means of preventing the crack made from breaking the sound barrier. Still, the weapon chosen resembles very closely the weapons shown on the pages linked to above which are all military weapons. The weapon shown in the CNN clip and probably in most broadcasts will largely be military weapons which are not purchasable at your neighborhood firearms dealership. They are the Lotus racecar of weapons. The one item which many of the reports are counting on is the ignorance of the average viewer. They are aware that the average person who resides within a metropolitan area, especially along the two coasts, probably has not fired a gun in a long time if ever. They are using this ignorance, the lack of in depth knowledge of firearms to show a firearm which they are fully aware is nothing at all similar to any firearm that one can purchase under the law without special licensing. But here is something nobody is likely to tell you about firearms. The scary-looking weapons may not be the more dangerous weapons. The first thing one needs to know is the military style weapon and the hunting rifle both fire one bullet for every trigger pull. Either weapon can be adjusted to take a bump stock but a well-trained weapons expert can use techniques to perform the exact same firing style which the bump stock is presumed to provide with a normal stock. The bump stock may make the rapid-fire rate easier for the lesser skilled marksman, it can be equaled through additional training. Now there are some differences which are due directly to the length of the barrel. The military styled weapons have shorter barrels than their hunting rifle variants. Both use identical bullets for the same caliber. The additional length of the barrel for the regular rifle allows for greater accuracy and a faster exit velocity for the projectile, the bullet. These two points are that the hunting rifle which in most instances has similar, if not identical bullet capacities, are actually more dangerous even in the average person’s hands who has a modicum of weapons training.

 

Finally, let us talk about what laws, which can make shootings like those which have plagued the United States, a thing of the past. We are talking about school shootings, church shootings, the Las Vegas mass shooting and the carnage such as experienced in the city of Chicago and other major metropolitan areas. The one item which would work if enforceable would be making bullets and firearms illegal. The problem is unless the energy entities from the Star Trek episode, “Errand of Mercy,” where the Organians disable all offensive weaponry by making them radiate extreme heat making them incapable of being touched, let alone used, we are stuck with what humans can do. Unfortunately, we doubt the Organians are real, but unless such beings do exist and the governments have kept contact a secret, then this attempt to end gun violence will be ineffective. The idea that if weapons such as firearms are made illegal, then only outlaws will have guns is valid if for no other reason than owning a firearm would make one a criminal. The meaning behind it is that criminals really have this habit of disregarding laws and thus would continue to use implements of crime such as firearms in their commission of crimes when helpful. Finally, the only means by which weapons controls could have any hope of working would be if they were universal and that would include disarming nations and their militaries. For reasons which we hope are obvious, this also could never work as there would be at the least a dozen or so nations which would make weaponry illegally and in as clandestine a manner so as to try and catch those nations silly enough to obey such a United Nations decree disarmed and conquer them. Oddly enough, the best means to prevent these mass murders and the straight criminal use of firearms would be counter-intuitive. The solution is to require everybody to take weapons training with refresher courses every year and qualifying and everybody who qualifies will be required to carry a firearm concealed everywhere they go, criminal, stock broker, salesman, parking attendant, stock clerk, accountant, lawyer, car salesman, rocket scientist, physician, physicist and anyone else. In this way there is likely to be an armed person capable of using their weapon close to any criminal use to end the shooting plus criminals would be suspecting that their potential targets would be armed thus crime would drop to the lowest levels in history. That is correct; arm everybody capable of controlling a firearm. Yes, it sounds crazy, but this is the only method which would work and this has been proven, guess where, Israel where the IDF infantry and other trained personnel carry their weapons in public. Shootings are often brought to an end very rapidly as a trained person with a firearm is often close at hand to bring the shooter to justice with great swiftness. But many would quickly claim that some things which work in Israel might not work as well outside Israel and we agree.

The Bane of Israel Advocacy

 

We have all heard that the European Union has caved to the pressures of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) lobbying groups who were originated by the Fatah Party which is the same as saying the PA (Palestinian Authority). They introduced the idea that Israel was an Apartheid nation because the Arabs under the semi-autonomous rule of the Palestinian Authority run by Mahmoud Abbas who has not run for election since assuming the top spot when Yasser Arafat died in 2004. Abbas did not run in the 2005 elections and cancelled the scheduled 2009 election claiming an emergency which would not permit elections and then claimed Israel had not allowed the Arabs under the Palestinian Authority to vote because they were Arabs. What was not reported is that they are ruled by Abbas and he has refused to hold elections because he knows he would be defeated. Israel has no control over Arab elections, or no elections, under Palestinian rule which apparently has become a dictatorship as Abbas has assumed the position of President for Life which he has convinced the world that Israel has caused by not holding elections that he had cancelled. Why did the world media and so many pick up on this story and run with it when they also knew the truth was Abbas refused to hold elections and every Arab citizen of Israel has voted in Israeli elections if they choose to vote just like every other Israeli citizen. If an Israeli citizen does not vote, it is entirely their decision and not the fault of anyone other than themselves. So, as we asked a second ago, what is the problem with the media reporting an entirely false accusation against Israel when they are completely aware that the reason these Arabs under the authority which is led by Mahmoud Abbas as there have been no elections because Abbas cancelled them and will likely cancel the next election as he desires absolute power and refuses to take any chance he might not win but he blamed Israel and that is what the media reports, but why?

 

The answer is simple, in order to be permitted to have access to the Arab areas under Mahmoud Abbas and remain completely healthy when doing so one must report what they are told and never ever cross that line and report the truth or your access will be cancelled and you will be glad your life was not cancelled, not exactly an occurrence which has no precedence. What happens when you lie about Israel such as blaming Israel for Abbas refusing to hold elections? Nothing, absolutely nothing because Israel is an open and free society while the Arab Palestinian semi-autonomous territories is a closed and dictatorial police state with a highly armed enforcement police who are ready to execute anybody at a moment’s notice for being an Israeli agent. That had many examples which the media refuses to report for the same reason as above. So the media will report the Arab Palestinian line and not even check if there is an ounce of reality and truth as they already know that almost everything they claim of blame Israel over are lies or at best exaggerations, but it is news that feeds a popular line, it’s all the Jews fault, or in the modern line, the Jewish State’s fault. There is more to this situation with many in Europe amongst the intelligentsia setting the understood line of thought that Israel is the new Jewish Problem which must be dealt with just as the Jewish Problem of World War II was handled and the only difference is this time the Arab States are the tool replacing the Nazis, only even generally more rabid in their hatred and fury with the Jews and their state of Israel.

There are a majority of nations which are completely comfortable with annulling the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 which is viewed as the establishment of Israel. This majority is a combination of the Arab States, some Muslim non-Arab states, the NAM states (non-aligned nations mostly developing nations) and a good if not majority of the European nations and with President Obama the United States could become doubtful for supporting Israel. Fortunately it is doubtful a move to eradicate Israel by United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven enforceable decree would pass without at least one of the five permanent nations; the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain, and France; using their veto to kill such a motion as it would require the use of force if Israel refused to agree to be dissolved, a likely scenario should such ever come to pass. Unfortunately, such a scenario just might be coming within the next year should Israel be challenged by Iran and allied forces currently in Syria such as Hezballah and additionally Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacked Israel using Iranian provided missiles and warheads and this is proven sufficiently that Israel decided to impart some small retribution launching from one of their submarines a cement tipped warhead on a cruise missile striking the Supreme Leader’s offices in the middle of the night thus causing minimal loss of life but departing a definite and unmistakable message. Imagine how such a scenario would be covered in the media. The Iranians would be calling an emergency meeting of every agency in the world and demanding Israeli leaders and all of Israel be erased over this unprovoked aggression by the Jewish State. There would finally be a Friday Afternoon where the masses would be yelling “Down with Israel” without the usual accompanying “Down with the United States” as Israel would have finally become the Great and Little Satan all over an attack which at most killed two people, one of which was sleeping outside the building struck. And just imagine the headlines and coverage such would get by the New York Times, the BBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, AFP, Reuters, FOX, France 2, France 24 and especially Haaretz as we would not want to leave out what President Rivlin recently declared that, “In times of Right-wing coalitions, and in times of Left-wing coalitions, Haaretz always remained in opposition, and criticized both sides when necessary. Being in the opposition is not an easy job. Most of my youth, I belonged to the opposition – to the ‘wrong’ side. Knowing that the public has chosen a different way, the opposition must work hard to convince them it has better solutions. It must reconnect with the public and still keep to its own truth. Without this effort, without a live-and-kicking opposition, our democracy is worth little. I am here today because I believe that the free market of ideas is a sacred principle.” There are many who hold doubts that Haaretz has maintained such an oppositional level with equal ardor favoring neither Right nor Left-wing governments as their very evident slant to the Port if we put it in naval terms.

 

The reality which has caused a bit of an identity crisis is that this new form of anti-Semitism is not the compliment of the older anti-Semitism which was relegated to a Right-wing; the neo-anti-Semitism is a purely Left-wing phenomenon and has a virulence which almost defies comparison. There are many of the neo-anti-Semites who claim that Hamas is correct in their actions as Israel refuses to end their occupation despite Israel removing every vestige of their existence in August of 2005 leaving only the multi-million-dollar advanced greenhouses which would have provided an entire industry up and running only to have them torn apart in order to turn the piping and other framework and provisions into rockets and explosives out of the fertilizer and launched these rockets into Israel. They ignore that Israel had no embargo blockade when they initially turned the Gaza Strip over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinian Authority. It was after Hamas took control in a coup that Israel found it necessary to prevent them from importing heavy weapons and other more destructive systems with which to bombard Israeli civilians in neighboring communities which were initially in jeopardy. With assistance from Iran and European monies Hamas has slowly developed the capacity to produce rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel placing Jerusalem and Haifa within striking distance of their latest rockets and who knows what will be available in the next round with Hamas. The other item ignored is the charters of both the Arab Palestinian Authority and especially those of Islamic Jihad and Hamas which both quote passages from the Quran usually utilized to express the unbridled hatred of the Jews and insists in their eradication to the last single Jew. But is this a worrisome concern of these neo-anti-Semites? No, never even a concern is placed in such knowledge as it makes little difference; all is permissible in the crusade to purge the world of the Jew in the form of the Jewish State, of Israel.

 

That is the drive behind the BDS program but that is just one piece of the tip of the spear. The rest of the spear, the mass of the spearhead behind the sharp knives which are stabbing Jews in Israel every day and have been doing so for months and apparently has become the new normal along with ramming groups of people with the car and lately evolved to include firearms as drive by shootings have joined the assaults on Jews which are not being reported in the liberal media, too Jewish to report. The story line from Gaza is even more controlled and enforced line of the story is always the same, the Jews are forcing the violence and rockets fired onto their cities. Hamas would stop firing the rockets if the Jews would just go back to where they came or just disappeared all-together. The Europeans think the Jews should leave while they can and go to Israel and the Arabs want the Jews to all go to Europe or America or Alaska, anywhere but in lands where there are Arabs. If the Arabs got the upper-hand in the Arab-Israeli conflict and made the world an offer of accepting the Jews and Christians and any other than Muslim Israelis instead of allowing Hamas to liquidate them all, does anybody honestly believe their nations would take as many Israelis as they have Syrians? Syrians are victims of a horrific war but the Jews simply lost and have to face the result of that loss, they do not rate high enough on the world’s sympathy meter to honestly give it a moment’s thought. Let Hamas and the others do as they choose, what problem is it of the world. This is understood though never spoken of in polite company as such things are too horrible to believe of our fellow mankind. Such truths must be ignored even if we in our hearts fear the truth of such as we remember the trip, the lonely and desperate trip of the St Louis and the fate which awaited her passengers because nobody, nor Cuba who had extended their open arms only to close them slamming the door of hope in the passengers of the St Louis’s faces and not the United States, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, nor any other possible nation in the entire world extended a helping hand to the passengers of the St Louis as they slowly made their way back to Nazi Germany and the Concentration Camps. Would today be any different if instead of a ship on the high seas instead it was the Ship of State of Israel which was stricken and needed a nation to which her people might embark on creating new lives or face certain death should the world turn a cold hearted refusal as they had the St Louis.

Would there be any difference in the liberal halls of Europe who already fund a multitude of NGOs whose goal is the death of the Jewish State, and whose European Union has taken its first step towards placing an embargo on all Israeli goods and services, except any great innovation which might serve them or their peoples interests such as instant messaging, most software protection systems and other innovations. The European nations which abstain rather than vote their hearts in the United Nations allowing every sort and form of denunciation to go unopposed by Europe who calm their conscience with an abstention telling themselves that was close enough as they could have supported and thus was a tacit approval and not outright. There is no difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism or anti-Israelism as holding Israel to its own unique set of perfection which no other nation is held or even expected of itself on its best day, but Israel must hold to perfection and any mar or mere scratch of the polishing wax that could easily be rubbed from existence is instead used to martyr Israel, used to spear her and roast her slowly over hot embers enjoying every drip of sweat and the sizzle of the fat as that is the sentence for imperfection if you are Israel, if you are the Jewish State.

 

That is the judgement of the media, especially the left leaning media but across the boards it often seems similar. So why does not Israel have its defenders? Certainly not President Francois Hollande who after the carnage in Paris, refused to include Jerusalem in the list of cities hit by terrorists making what can only be classified as one deliberate anti-Semitic choice. Well, she does have some spokespeople but they do not dictate to the media and only control the one station in most regions which is largely seen only by those who agree. Such a station is the CBN network which often defends Israel and that is applauded by many Evangelicals but they are but one group. Even the Jews are not as solidly supportive of Israel with many feeling embarrassed when the discussion comes to Israel because they know what should be expected of them but they know they will fall short as their standing in the leftist community is more important, inclusion and acceptance is more important because they will never live in Israel, maybe a couple of weeks every few years just for the sake of proving they are not anti-Semitic Jews, but never permanently as the United States is so much better. They might be surprised that for a Jew they are incorrect but to each their own. And there is another big problem, for if Jews refuse to support Israel, then who can one demand support from. This adds to the reasoning that Israel is indefensible as even her own people are against her. And that takes care of much of the media as the leftist Jews in the media bash Israel and the conservatives have such a small contribution and are not given space often enough in the major newspapers as might be hoped. There are claims the Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author supports Israel; with such support may we have less support and settle for honest criticism. Then there is the lost generation, the Jews who received just enough Jewish education that they might remember how to read the very Hebrew they learned to be Bar or Bat Mitzvah and some Jewish bible history which might still resonate and they know Hanukah because it comes with Christmas and they remember the High Holidays but still go to work on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and do not fast for Yom Kippur. That is the average Jew in America but fortunately the average Jew in Israel is getting more and more religious in what is called the periphery which means outside Tel Aviv and some secular areas of Jerusalem. Is there hope for Israel’s future? Yes, and it is assured with every little miracle we witness almost every day.

 

There are the little miracles which only those present or related to a person who was present know about. There are miracles such as the birth of a healthy child or any child as all life is precious and has its own reason and future to map out and their contribution for which Hashem placed them here as there are no wasted souls, just some who have gone astray and will require some therapy to come around, and that is provided in the least expected of ways. Then there are the mysterious miracles which make no sense or reason other than Hashem willed it and it came to be. As the Hamas officer of a rocket company was called on the carpet for not striking Tel Aviv, he was demanded to explain how he could miss such a large target and he replied that even when their rocket flew true towards central Tel Aviv their G0d moved it aside. I doubt his commander accepted that story, well, until he read about it in the news as it made news across Israel and was celebrated as proof of Hashem protecting Israel and we all prayed a little louder that week. You can read about it in our article Why Palestinian Israeli Conflict Appears Open-Ended as we definitely mentioned it. The wind mentioned as redirecting the rocket out to sea would need to be more than a strong gust or even strong directed winds as rockets are designed to fly straight with only minimal effect from side winds, especially with seconds before they strike. Any wind capable to such redirection would have caused more damage and deaths than the rocket striking. The wind was as to give naysayers their logical explanation. The Hamas officer in that reported story nailed it, Hashem moved the rockets to strike harmlessly and as most of these rockets striking empty fields and vacant lots could be claimed to be just luck so it was necessary to make one spectacular redirect on at least one rocket so all would know that these rockets missing was more than just luck, they each were potentially a miracle, every-one a potential miracle.

Terror as Just a Daily Occurrence

 

Throughout most of the world people have no idea that Israelis are still suffering at least four or five active terror attacks each day and that does not include throwing boulder sized rocks and firebombs at passing vehicles hoping to put the huge rocks or the firebomb through the windshield or side window thus hitting the driver causing a crash and potentially fatalities. Many of these ambushed are even done from moving trucks going the opposite direction as the cars they target doubling the speed of their deadly projectiles and these ambushes can go on for hours before they are ended as they move and are planned to evade the IDF and police. Further, the Shin Bet has a more important task than Arab terror as Arab terror is a nuisance as there are bigger fish to fry, what are euphemistically called Jewish terrorism and is largely overstated but has occurred on occasions but nowhere near as prevalent as the Arab terror and more often it is more protest than threat to life. The Duma fire was an exception but has yet to be proven to be an act by Jews but the PA assures the Shin Bet that as there was Hebrew writing claiming it was a price-tag crime that no Arab could have possible written that in Hebrew, there is no way in the world such could be the case. Meanwhile the Shin Bet is rounding up the usual suspects and locking them away for deep interrogation until somebody breaks. Yet daily threats continue as the latest round-up claimed numerous right wing extremists, as always those on the right are extremists while the most egregious and violent leftist might be referred to as left-leaning but otherwise they are mainly left-center or normal as the writers of much of our daily read mainstream media are closer to leftist extremists than they are to centrist observers without any slant or leanings that might taint their reporting. Perhaps that is why we feel free to do the same except from the right and we try to be fair when reporting facts.

 

The world media might wish to get their news and actually report the daily assaults on Jews especially in and around Jerusalem and other places where Arabs and Jews are in close proximity. But if they wish not to report that their favorites are attempting daily to murder as many Jews as possible, then maybe they would do a feel-good story and arrange a tour of one of those miserable factories which some ‘evil’ Jew owns across the Green Line in Judea and Samaria and take a camera crew and do a live and unrehearsed feed to the morning news shows, maybe even on the View, and show Arab and Jews working together and both treating each other as equals and show what can be if the world could get off their kill the ‘evil’ Jewish State angle. There are many stories like this daily both within the Green Line and across the Green Line. They might want to explain that the entirety of the Green Line problem is also a manufactured attempt to destroy the Jewish State of Israel but then they would need to point out their active supporting role of ignoring terrorism against Jews and reporting immediately breaking into news casts to report the slimmest of rumored crimes by Jews such as defending themselves from terror attacks.

We have seen and heard news reports where a BBC, CNN, FOX or other news station reporting the unequal numbers of killed in the recent terror wave or reporting that in Israel many Arabs have received non-judicial sentencing as Jews are murdering, or the slightly less offensive killing, of Palestinians largely in the Jerusalem area where terror has often struck. What is a listener or viewer to believe is causing the terror with such reporting? They certainly are not going to believe that there is Arab on Jew violent terror attacks and the Jews and law enforcement is often forced to use deadly force as the perpetrator of the terrorism wants to continue to stab even responding armed police and IDF personnel. But in Israel the blame the victim especially if they are IDF or Israeli police or Jews defending themselves is nothing new as the news out of Israel to the rest of the world often takes the hands-up don’t shoot attitude casting the Arab as the victim who had absolutely no other choice but to attack Jews with large knives and hatchets. The Jews were asking to be assaulted as they exist in Jerusalem astoundingly enough. Could the reporting be any more slanted than the few we pointed out just the other day in our article Red Flags Facing Israel in Every Direction complete with screen shots and images of such reporting.

 

As we write this article there is more than likely an act of terror with intent to murder Jews being committed somewhere in Israel or the disputed areas. Also, do you in the media think you could ever cover that the ‘disputed areas’ were originally at the dawn of Israel’s existence all part of Israel as was Gaza and they were taken by the Arab forces attempting to eradicate the Jewish State on Day 1 and that the disputed West Bank was then called Judea and Samaria but was occupied, actual occupation, and the Jews forced from the areas of Judea and Samaria, by Jordan who conquered the area in an offensive war initiated by the Arabs and that in the six Day War Israel liberated, yes, liberated these lands and under all International Codes of Law the entirety of the ‘West Bank’ Judea and Samaria belong to Israel and the Arabs have no legitimate claim. Oh no, that cannot be reported as it might confuse our viewers in the Western World and give them the idea that the Jews are more the victims of erroneous reporting of the news and the disfiguring the reality beyond recognition. Why baffle your viewers and readers with actual facts when you can play demigods and cast the Jews into the fiery pit. People should, if they know of somebody who had visited Israel and not said much about their trip other than listing the interesting places they visited, ask them about how the Jews treat the Arabs and the majority of the Arabs interact with the Jews and what areas they felt completely safe visiting and where they were either too frightened or took a tour which brought its own security with them for their safety. Their answers might completely turn what you have been led to believe right over and on its head. Don’t be afraid as the truth may give one a jolt in the brain box, it otherwise results in a warm feeling of realization. We wish you to ask somebody you know what their visit to our little, very little, corner of the world because once you have gathered a few testimonies the things we write will become clearer and less extreme and possibly quite believable, as the truth often becomes once one has been freed from the confines of the misleaders, also known as the mainstream media.

 

 

Arab Palestinian Sets Self on Fire Attempting to Throw Molotov Cocktail

Arab Palestinian Sets Self on Fire Attempting to Throw Molotov Cocktail

 

 

It is truly sad that Arabs using large rocks as projectiles against vehicles with Israeli license plates, which could strike any Israelis be they Jew, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Bedouin, or tourist from anywhere in a rented vehicle because even if it sends the entire carload of a family, business people carpooling, or just about any other scenario, to a hospital or worse, a morgue; it is not news. There are also numerous firebombs thrown at cars with Israeli license plates and homes in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods and the occasional user of a firebomb who gets things entirely wrong as pictured above. The young man survived and this is known because if he had been seriously wounded or died the media would have been fed a story that the Jews threw a firebomb at this youth almost killing him or worse and the media would have spread that far and wide. The boulder throwing, car rammings, rioting, stabbings using everything from screwdrivers to knives to hatchets, mugging murders of young women even by taxi drivers from which they were being driven to a job interview and then there are the rockets from Hamas and the threats out of Lebanon where Hezballah has amassed thousands of rockets and missiles provided by Iran and snuck past Israel’s attempts to stop such shipments. The threats even have come from the Mediterranean of which one was avenged and it is starting to appear that Samir Kuntar was eliminated by Hezballah due to fears that he was about to return to his Druze roots and assist in the formation of a Druze autonomous zone which Bashir al-Assad cannot allow as the Druze are the last faithful holding Islamic State as bay.

 

Even with the events on the Temple Mount the blame is laid at the wrong door as the news reports blame the Jews for attempting to desecrate the al-Aqsa Mosque simply because Mahmoud Abbas has said so on numerous occasions and we all know for the media his words are truth and any evidence to the contrary be damned. This has been at the root of the rioting and is the exact same call for Jihad on demand used by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini back as early as 1920s as he called for the Muslims first in Hevron to rise up and protect al-Aqsa from the Jewish attempts to desecrate it with their demonic services and then a while later he repeated the same message to the Muslims of Jerusalem for another pogrom against the Jews. This was the rallying cry used during the second intifada to much glorious effect causing rioting, suicide bombings and other assaults murdering over a thousand Jews and spawning the separation barrier which in some locations necessitated concrete to prevent shooting from Arab neighborhoods into the houses and at children playing outside (which made many a Jewish child into a shut in and home schooled as allowing them to walk to school was far too risky) and there were court cases and many reroutings done to make the lives of those at the demarcation line for the fence easier. Much of the fence is just that, fence with cameras and sensors but in built up areas there was the need for something to stop high powered rifle bullets, thus concrete which has been shown across the world making it into an apartheid wall in the media when it was simply a defensive necessity so Israelis could go out in public and not be blown to pieces. The rioting on the Temple Mount is not about the al-Aqsa Mosque but about closing the Temple Mount to Jewish visitors and Christian visitors as well. The riots are a means of making the Temple Mount a Muslim only zone and it will never work even if Jews are going to need to enter the Temple Mount from another unapproved entrance, say the Lion’s Gate and the small number of Jews entering coming in at around five thousand, that would be a sight and if occurring during Muslim rioting we would bet that would end any riots and the Temple Mount would be Jewish and Christian and whomever else desired to come peaceably and enjoy the blessings of this holy place. Below there are a few pictures of the al-Aqsa Mosque and one picture which is not the al-Aqsa Mosque despite being shown all too often on the news and elsewhere depicting the Dome of the Rock as the al-Aqsa Mosque. The first is a montage of al-Aqsa from within as it is being utilized as a munitions depot with rocks and other essentials for rioting.

 

 

Armory al-Aqsa Mosque Desecrated by making it a fortified base from which to launch rioting

 

 

Dome of the Rock is on the Left al-Aqsa Mosque is on the Right One is Nice and Very Eye Catching The Other is Less Eye Catching thus al-Aqsa is Abused as an Armory and Used to Whip Up the Riots against Jews
