Arab Israel Peace Takes Turn for the Worse

 

United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Palestinian Authority President has recently been battling in the media with exchanges of accusations and insult. The exchanges began with Ambassador David Friedman expressing dissatisfaction and sorrow over the fact that nobody from the leadership of the Palestinian Authority had spoken forth to condemn the series of deadly terror attacks that took the lives of three Israelis over the weekend. As a simple review, please allow us to review the events from this past weekend. On Friday March 16, 2018, an Arab terrorist rammed his vehicle into four soldiers and killed two Israeli soldiers in northern Samaria, and injured two more. The terrorist was caught and was injured and hospitalized while also facing interrogation. Our murdered soldiers were Captain Ziv Deus, 21, from the Azor Regional Council, and Sergeant Netanal Kahalani, 20, from the town of Eliakim. A third Israeli was murdered in the Old City part of Jerusalem when he was repeatedly stabbed. The victim was identified as 32-year-old Adiel Kolman, a father of four from the town of Kochav Hashahar. The terrorist fled the scene but was identified as 28-year-old Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal, a resident of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Aqraba, near Shechem [Nabulus] and was found to have entered Israel with a valid entry permit.

 

These permits are provided to Palestinian Arabs so they are able to enter Israel and work. In this case the permit was reportedly a temporary entry permit, intended to allow Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal to find work. It is more likely that the entry permit was applied for in order to carry out the attack and the terrorist lied in order to receive the permit. As long as you have no record of terror activity you are issued these permits. Fa’adal reportedly received several entry permits in the past. Abed al-Rahman Bani Fa’adal was faced at the scene of the attack and an officer who shot and killed him. Below is a picture of the knife used to murder Adiel Kolman, the father of four from the town of Kochav Hashahar. The reason behind Ambassador David Friedman’s distress likely stems from that in the past, at the very least Mahmoud Abbas would make some statement condemning acts of terror and express (false) sympathy for the immediate family of those slain. It is realized that Abbas will continue to grant pension style funding to the terrorist in prison or the family of those slain terrorists commensurate with the number of Israelis murdered with other bonuses for special considerations. The lack of even the pretend sympathy is a further sign that all civility between the United States and the Palestinian Authority are gone and the United States will not be considered as equal to the Israelis living beyond the Green Line. These Israelis reside in Area C on lands that are legally intended for Israel to possess. The sliding scale which Yasser Arafat perfected and Mahmoud Abbas has continued has convinced the world that Israel is encroaching on lands which belonged to a nation called Palestine which was a victim in the Six Day War. The problem is there was no nation of Palestine nor has there ever been such a nation. The lands between the Green Line and the Jordan River were occupied Israeli lands by right of the San Remo Convention and numerous treaties since including Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The occupying power was Jordan who when signing their peace treaty with Israel forfeited any claims to these lands which means there is no actual legal controversy, these lands all belong to Israel unless she recognizes another owner to whom she gifts lands such as was the case with Gaza which was turned over to the Palestinian Authority who subsequently lost it in a coup to Hamas. The rest is, as they say, history.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas responded on Monday to Ambassador David Friedman’s comments on the lack of condemnation of the weekend terror attacks. In very informal and unacceptable language, Mahmoud Abbas referred to Ambassador Friedman as a “son of a dog, settler.” This is referencing of Jews as the offspring of apes, or sometimes simply monkeys, and pigs. In Islam additionally dogs are considered an unclean animal which they are advised to avoid contact with. Thus calling Friedman the offspring of a dog, he avoided using the usual denotation for somebody who is Jewish using Dog instead of Ape or Pig. Abbas was still insulting the American Ambassador and went further to call him a settler and his family to be settlers in his Ramallah speech where Abbas said, “The United States legitimizes settlements. That’s what American officials do, and at their head, in Tel Aviv, is David Friedman. He said, ‘They’re building on their own land.’ The son of a dog, they’re building on their own land? He himself is a settler, and his entire family are settlers.” This name calling and using an unclean animal could easily make them a legitimate target for a terror attack in the minds of Palestinians. Some terrorist may go so far as to decide that he will strike this “dog settler” and rid Abbas of this thing which is obviously unclean and residing on stolen lands. The American Ambassador’s apartment is in West Jerusalem, not in East Jerusalem, which does not matter to Mahmoud Abbas as he considers Tel Aviv residents to be Jews living on occupied Palestinian Lands. Mahmoud Abbas and the majority, if not all, of the Palestinian Authority, the PLO and Fatah Party leadership view all of Israel as rightfully theirs. This is what they mean when they refer to the seventy years of occupation as Mahmoud Abbas consistently states at the United Nations without even a peep of opposition. The video below is from the official Palestinian Authority television broadcast station from March 11, 2016, just over two year ago. In this video near the forty-second mark is where Abbas refers to what he called their occupation for 67 or 68 years which takes us back to 1948 when Israel was established. When Abbas states he wants to go back to before there were lines, he desires a return to Ottoman Rule where the Muslims ruled all of the lands from Turkey. Jerusalem was home to a majority Jewish population and Jews were permitted to reside anywhere in Jerusalem. Abbas has even denoted that he desires to return to May 13, 1948, one day before Israel declared her independent existence and when six Arab armies supported by a number of militias all attacked Israel and when she lost Gaza to Egypt and Judea and Samaria to Jordan. But Abbas simply desires to erase Israel from any lands and existence.

 

 

Needless to say, American Ambassador Friedman did not take the slight from Abbas well. As a matter of fact, he made it the central theme of his opening remarks to the Sixth Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism (see video below). Ambassador Friedman stated to the Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism, “Three Jews were killed in cold blood by the Palestinian terrorists, and the reaction from the Palestinian Authority was deafening. No condemnation whatsoever. I pointed that out, without further adjectives, without further commentary. Abu Mazen (Abbas) chose to respond. … His response was to refer to me as the ‘son of a dog.’ Anti-Semitism or political discourse? Not for me to judge. I’ll leave that all up to you.” One can easily assume how the attendees at the Sixth Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism would react to this dangerous game and name-calling.

 

 

Meanwhile, Israeli leaders have let their feelings be aired, with Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) saying, “David, after just one year in office, we can already see that you’re going to go down in Israel’s history as a true friend of the State of Israel.” Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded, “Abu Mazen’s remarks about US Ambassador David Friedman say everything. This is the first time in decades that the US government is no longer spoiling the Palestinian leaders, and he’s telling them: enough. Apparently the shock of hearing the truth made them lose their senses.” Our additional words will be quotes from Giulio Meotti where in his article 14 New Israeli Orphans in One Month where he states In just one month in Israel, the same scene took place three times in three different locations: Har Bracha, Havat Gilad and Kochav Hachachar.”


  • 1) Hundreds of people crowded in a cemetery, sometimes an improvised one.
    2) The victims, all young Israelis, civilians, fathers, husbands.
    3) Killed by Palestinian Arab terrorists just because they were Jews.
    4) Families in agony.
    5) Young wives and mothers in mourning, small communities devastated by the violent death shattering the sense of security.
    6) No condemnation by Palestinian “peace partners”.
    7) Faint, inaudible voices from Europe.
    8) Horrendous newspaper titles.
    “Western ears and eyes are full of images of Palestinian Arab youths, often impostors like Ahed Tamimi, the darling of the “popular Intifada”, but never of these 14 Israeli orphans. Double orphans. Their fathers killed twice. First by the terrorists. Then by Western indifference.”

 

Giulio Meotti struck the vital chord in this saga, the reactions in the Western World and the reason they are so jaded. They are shown scenes of people starving or standing before a half destroyed building weeping for their loss. Every one of these stories tells of Palestinian troubles and hardships. You will see a Palestinian mother whose son, a terrorist, was killed while perpetrating a terror attack aboard a Jerusalem bus in October of 2015 and said she hoped her other sons would follow in his footsteps, and, with knife in hand, announced her intention to carry out her own attack against Israelis. The next video is from July 22, 2009, and depicts a mother before and after her son commits an act of terrorism seeking to be killed by Israeli troops. One might ask what gain is there in being killed by IDF troops or police while you are in an act of terror murdering innocents who are usually not armed. The reason is obvious, it brings honor to your family and guarantees them a far better wage for their son dead than he could make while living. Many of the terrorists when captured claim that there are no decent jobs even with the Palestinian Authority government and the stipend granted the family of a martyr is far greater than even a good job would pay in their society. They give their lives so their family can have a better life. If they commit a sufficiently violent crime killing many Israelis leading to their house, their family’s house, being demolished, the Palestinian authority builds them a new house. So it could be two benefits, a new house and a high stipend salary earned each month by their now dead son. She also states her wish to have one-hundred sons to sacrifice to Allah. What religion do you know where you sacrifice your children to your deity? Think about this religion existing in our modern world where sacrificing your children to your deity, to your god. And this idea of sacrificing children to Allah is not new and exists throughout much of Islamic culture and lands. An entire webpage is dedicated to such exuberance from parents of martyrs, for any wishing to see more. We do not even wish to think about this any further; it sickens us.

 

 

The terror war in Israel is unfortunately continuing at a higher than acceptable pace. Hamas is still taking all the cement and bracing lumber to make their tunnels into Israel and Israel continues to destroy them as they are detected. Hamas has invested anywhere from two to five million Euros on each tunnel and Israel destroys a tunnel almost every week and two on a good week. That is a lot of time and effort and steals from the people in Gaza who also need these supplies to rebuild their homes and lives. Below is a picture of one of the discovered tunnels which was subsequently destroyed.

Hamas could build apartment buildings and it is estimated that the cost and supplies utilized in building one tunnel which Israel finds and destroys could have built three schools or five clinics or almost two hospitals. These estimates do not include the entire network of underground bunkers and interconnecting tunnel structures which are underneath Gaza City, Rafah, and Khan Yunis as well as the refugee camp. Why there is a refugee camp in Gaza is beyond our understanding, as there is little if any difference between the people in the camp and those outside the camp except those inside the camp eat even if they have no job, those outside the camp do not have that privilege. These UNRWA camps have found a means of destroying any possibility for civility between them and those outside their camps throughout the Arab world. Much of this has to do with the refugees selling off items, which UNRWA replaces freely, making a tidy profit off their fellow Arabs. Additionally, the refugees receive a stipend so as to provide them some dignity despite not having steady jobs as these camps often are closed holding the refugees within as in the past when they were permitted free movement a fairly large number fled to start life over and live a normal life. Still, others have adopted the life of living off the largess gifted them by UNRWA and are in their third or fourth generation exploiting the charity of the world. President Trump decided the United States was not going to further invest in this wasteful system and ended United States UNRWA aid monies. We should end on that one good sliver of hope.

Apocalypse Israel Skewered by Trump and Company

 

President Trump has assembled a group to formulate the most marvelous peace proposal which they will craft such that Mahmoud Abbas will feel comfortable taking it demanding two or three adjustments and Israel will be informed that their military is so dependent on American provisions that they can simply sit down, shut up and take their medicine because the object is to allow Trump to accomplish what no one before him had been able to do, and if Israel must suffer some inconvenience, well it is about time and this time they will simply bite the bullet and take whatever is coming. A senior White House adviser said Trump’s Mideast peace plan would attempt to tackle hot-button issues such as the status of Jerusalem and West Bank settlements.

The team includes Jason Greenblatt, son-in-law and chief Middle East adviser Jared Kushner, Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman with this four-member team reportedly also consulting with State Department officials along with US Consul General in Jerusalem Donald Blome. This was meant to impress everybody and with Jared Kushner and David Friedman on board, Israel should have nothing to worry about, right? We have seen dream teams before and we can only hope that this will be the final dream team, whether they succeed or fail. Every time there is one of these great ventures, Israel is pressured and forced to surrender lands and sovereignty to the Arabs and the Arabs are to make promises with their full intention of ignoring them two minutes later, if that long. Israel should work to minimize the damage which will be coming simply because President Trump is the greatest deal-maker in the world and he will make this deal, he has promised exactly that. Unfortunately, President Trump will deliver on this deal even if it all but kills Israel in the process, if not then, the coming war will be moments after everybody finishes glad handing one another over the miracle they had achieved.

Perhaps this is the time for a few quotes from the past week or so about these developments would be in order. First up is Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt who told The New York Times, “We have spent a lot of time listening to and engaging with the Israelis, Palestinians and key regional leaders over the past few months to help reach an enduring peace deal. We are not going to put an artificial timeline on the development or presentation of any specific ideas and will also never impose a deal. Our goal is to facilitate, not dictate, a lasting peace agreement to improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and security across the region.”

The New York Times reported also that both sides would be required to commit to confidence building measures, so, here we go again. “For Israel, it could include limiting settlement construction to current blocs without taking new land, recommitting to a two-state solution and redesignating a small part of the West Bank to give Palestinians more control.” Here we go again, no more houses to be built in the towns and not more construction even of places which would provide jobs for Israelis and Palestinians alike and growing families forced to live generation upon generation in a single dwelling. Meanwhile the European Union and Arabs may build freely even in places where the Arabs are forbidden by the Oslo Accords but rules do not apply to the Arabs as the whole idea is to destroy Israel.

“For the Palestinians, it could include resuming full security cooperation with Israel, holding off seeking further international recognition and ending payments to families of Palestinians imprisoned for terrorist attacks. Arab states, particularly Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, could add their own commitments, like overflights by Israeli passenger planes, visas for business people and telecommunications links.”

Note the difference; Israel surrenders actual concrete items and actual ground while the Palestinians only are required to end payments to terrorist’s families who are imprisoned. What about those who died in their terror attack, do they still pay those families, not to mention they will simply rename these payments and continue them while claiming they have ended. We can hear Abbas now; we have ended the payments to the families of terrorists while in reality they now receive monthly patriotism reward payments for their families’ contribution to the greater effort. In the end, there will be one small item which Abbas just cannot agree unless the item is included. Then the pressure starts on Israel and as Netanyahu slowly concedes, Abbas hints, suggests the advantage, requests, then says he will walk unless this additional item is included and the final request is something he recently promised the Arab world. According to Abbas and his latest stand, he explained, “We won’t relinquish the ‘right of return’.” This is the one demand which Mahmoud Abbas knows that Israel cannot accept as it would mean many millions, anywhere from four or five million to uncountable as every Syrian refugee in any camp would probably claim to be of Palestinian decent just to be in Israel for a better life plus all the Hezballah, IRGC, Islamic State and other Islamic groups flooding Israel with possibly twenty million Arab refugees with potentially three-quarters of them being terrorist plants specially sent to destroy Israel.

Here is where a problem just might creep into the whole equation. Let us start with a little historic story. Once upon a time, there was an America President and his Secretary of State where the Secretary of State once stated she thought of the Palestinians as the black slaves and the Israelis the plantation owners. They believed they had the solution, the grand solution by which the Palestinians would have the opportunity to prove their desire to found a state and actually make a go of it and the Israelis could see the progress and realize they should trust the Palestinians with the rest of what the world believes is legally their land. They gave Israel guarantees and assurances that everything would be protected by the United States and if anything were to go awry, then Israel and the United States would repair the damage together and put things back to the way they were. This was the great experiment where nothing could go wrong, Prime Minister Sharon fell for President George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice and their promises and grand solution, and Gaza was given over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians to build their state. Within two years, Hamas took control of Gaza in a coup and apparently that was not something going awry as the United States did nothing to return things to the way they were. Hopefully, Prime Minister Netanyahu recalls the worth of any United States promises and assurances that they will protect anything of Israel should things from their next grand scheme go wrong. Their guarantees are worthless, as worthless as every rocket and missile that Hamas and Islamic Jihad launch and every tunnel these terrorists dig is because of the guarantees given to Israel by an American President, one who the Israelis hailed as the most pro-Israel President ever, and now Trump has that same title and is coming with another grand plan where Israel makes concrete sacrifices and makes promises and hopes for peace while the world works through Trump’s inability to comprehend that he is being used as their tool to destroy Israel one step further.

 

So, let us look at the real story. President Trump is out to prove that he is the ultimate deal-maker and he will ply and pry at Israel forcing her to give him that precious deal proving his prowess and deal-making abilities. The team is mostly made up of amateurs with no experience or real depth of knowledge of the situation. Prime Minister Netanyahu had best tell them all about the grand Gaza deal and remind them how that turned out and the lack of American response to the emergency they created. But the truth is that the Europeans are the truthful ones as the European Union builds in Israeli territories Arab housing in order to erase as much of Israeli lands as they are able. The whole of world efforts since the promise to found a Jewish homeland has been to make such impossible. From the start the British along with Arab leaders forced Arabs to move into the Jewish designated areas while forbidding Jews from entering, even making the area all but completely closed during the Shoah. Since the founding of Israel, the efforts of the world have been to force Israel to exit as many strategic areas to the Arabs as frontal assaults from Arab armies failed in 1948-9, 1967 and 1973. President Obama all but presented Iran with nuclear weapons which would eventually be used against the United States knowing that they would also be used against Israel. This was an act which all but guarantees World War III, unless the world, especially Europe, realizes what is coming and acts preventively.

 

Abbas Gives Peace This Much of a Chance

Abbas Gives Peace This Much of a Chance

 

The world has worked to destroy Israel since her inception and continued even after she became a fact on the ground. Likely the first act should the European Union build a time machine, they will send an assassin back to murder Lord Balfour before he turns ten just to be sure. For a modern day replica of what Israel faced, look no further than the Kurdish and their recent referendum. The Kurdish forces in Iraq and Syria are largely responsible for the destruction of the Islamic State in those two nations and now they are being ditched like old birdcage newspaper lining. The Zionists were fortunate to have some people in important places and with wealth to back their efforts with Lord Rothschild being one of the more prominent names. The Kurds in Iraq and Syria need to band together and tell the world that they have decided to establish Kurdistan as they were promised would happen after World War I and simply define their desired borders and prepare to defend them. Israel should be the first nation to recognize such an effort and be there to assist their defense if requested. Israel received such assistance on a person-by-person basis as soldiers from World War II such as Colonel Marcus volunteered to assist the Jewish efforts. The world still thinks that they will destroy Israel given sufficient time; the establishing of Kurdistan might just give the world more national homelands as others may follow such an effort. The Berbers in Northern Africa are another group deserving of their own lands once again as are numerous others. Instead of attempting to destroy indigenous peoples’ hopes, the world should celebrate such and a good start would be instead of trying to destroy Israel, how about freeing Tibet from Chinese occupation, or does that occupation not count. The United States was supposed to be about freedom, hope and against tyranny, when did that all change? Perhaps the time has come for the United States to return to her roots and allow others to return to their roots and even assist those denied such freedoms. But we ask too much and know this, too bad.

Final Thought on UNSC RES. 2334 Plus Introduction on Ambassador David Friedman

 

UNSC RES. 2334 has been written, passed unanimously and states as plainly as possible, Israel will be treated as a pariah amongst the nations of the world. The appointment of Ambassador David Friedman as the American Ambassador for Israel states clearly that under a President Donald Trump Israel will receive the royal treatment and respect due the nations whose purpose is to return the Jewish Homelands to the rightful people so that they may then proceed to be a light unto the people of this world, not the nations’ governments who no longer deserve such goodness. Israel will continue to be the only haven in a cruel world for the Jewish People and their refuge from the ravages of anti-Semitism and the ravings of the anti-Semites. Israel will be the world’s mirror and in that mirror will each nation see their real governance and the ugly or beautiful truth that is their governance’s soul. The people of the world can look to Israel to be a friend always ready in times of crisis and always trying to be the best mentor to those willing to learn. The beauty that is the heart of Israel is also the Israel seen by the eyes and soul of the nominated Ambassador for Israel, David Friedman. That alone qualifies him and that alone will be why the enemies of Israel, the ones blinded in their rage, will attempt through all means possible to block his ratification to the post that so desperately needs exactly one David Friedman.

 

Ambassador-select David Friedman would be America’s best answer to UNSC RES. 2334 and would be a great step towards rectifying this grievous wound by completing the promises made to the Jewish people as we spoke of in yesterday’s article “President Obama’s Surprise No Surprise at All” and its listing of just some of the documented promises all now shattered by simple hatred and denial of the rightfulness of the Jewish claims to all of Israel. The ratification of Ambassador David Friedman would be to accept that as the elected President, Donald Trump is allowed latitude and respect for his choices for Ambassador positions as these are the point people who will lead in his dealings and in fulfilling his campaign promises where there are some which could be identified as vital for the continued health and viability of the State of Israel. When it comes to Israel, President elect Trump has found the second best choice, but then he never interviewed me for the position eliminating that possibility.

David Friedman has shown with his past writings that he understands who and what organizations are Israel’s worst enemies. He has identified some by name as these are organizations full of extreme leftists filled with the worst of all hatreds, self-hatred, hatred of your own lineage and the drive to cripple anything which has ties to religiosity, especially Jewish religiosity. Israel is your main target because in Israel you see all that you despise and you are willing to turn on your own people, both the religious Jews of Israel, your main hatred, and sacrificing the leftist Jews of Israel, some of which are members of allied NGOs and organizations. David Friedman sees through your empty claims to the seething underbelly and has brought that ugliness to the fore though he may have gone a step too far in his allegory equating you to possibly the only worst of what Jews have ever fallen. Perhaps he should have merely tied your hatred to the kind of Jews closer to your defilement, the Jews of the Golden Calf before Mount Sinai within the presence of Hashem. You are truly idolaters, worshipers of Baal, amongst the fallen Jews who have sought after those things pleasing to the eye and corruptive of the heart. These are the roots of the self-denial and corruption of the spirit which turns one Jew against his brother simply because his brother tries knowing failure is the more likely result, he tries to be what Hashem meant for a Jew to be. Just because the task is all but impossible is no reason to chase after the easier idolatrous gains which may enrich the pocket with earthly gold, but leaves a death of a soul behind, and it is because of that dying soul that one can hate one’s brothers and sisters. But apparently seeing through the use of the ‘but we’re Jews so we cannot stand accused of holding anti-Semitic views, so do not try and refute our anti-Semitic views,’ is considered a greater sin than being a self-loathing Jew.

 

David Friedman will make a refreshing change as Ambassador from the United States. Some will point to the present Ambassador, Daniel B. Shapiro, appointed by President Obama and beloved by J Street, Americans for Peace Now, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York and the litany of leftist Jews. Many will note former Ambassadors and Middle East advisors such as Martin Indyk, Denis Ross, Henry Kissinger and others all of which were Jews, some even religious Jews. Most were also beloved of the cult of liberal, progressive leftism, a form of social policies which believes that the solution is government, particularly government which does exactly as they believe with no room for discussion. Others were simply crowned princes of the left, even the extreme left. What they all shared was they were devoid of even a spark of Zionism and as such had no appreciation for Israel as the Jewish State and instead saw a state which others used to denigrate them and belittle their true allegiances and as such they sought to prove their pure allegiance to the extreme left by doing all in their power to destroy what they viewed as a ball and chain holding them from greatness, Israel. They often acted as if only they could destroy Israel, then they could achieve their beloved goal of complete acceptance by their peers, or even betters, on the left fringes of politics.

 

Almost all the advisors have been followers of the Two State Solution to the point that they have almost all taken the Palestinian claims and demands as their mission to force Israel into compliance and making grand sacrifices for empty promises. These resulted in permitting the return of Yasser Arafat, forced statements of compliance with the Two State Solution, granting semi-autonomous status for the Palestinian Authority (PA) allowing it to act as a state within the state of Israel with Nablus as its political center. Gifted the entirety of the Gaza Strip to the PA who promptly lost their control with Hamas wresting it from them in a short set of battles where the PA gave mere show of fighting and actually left some that the powers in Nablus wished gone to die or be subsumed into Hamas or into hiding of a political sort. Anyway, the PA ruling elite cleaned the slate of many in the opposition leaving only Abbas to lead the PA. Virtually every Middle East advisor has been an Arabist, and even if not, also a supporter of the Palestinian movement with some appearing to favor any deal even if such meant the end of Israel for they perceived Israel as the source of all tensions, problems, wars and other violence throughout the Middle East and some even the entirety of the world. These are the believers that all problems are caused because Israel insists on ruling every government through some conspiratorial means which can never be identified or traced but they know it exists. Some actually refer to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (Russian: Протоколы сионских мудрецов) or The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion is an anti-Semitic fabricated text purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination which were ordered by the Czar Alexander III or Czar Nicholas II, though some have claimed The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were actually written to spur Czar Nicholas II to modernize Russia and improve the economy using similar methods as pretended upon the Jews by the writings. Whatever their source, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion have been an inspiration for anti-Semites both before the fraud was revealed and maintain such status despite being outed as a fraud with absolutely no grounding in facts.

 

Where David Friedman may not be a true Zionist, after all he remains residing outside of Israel, he does have great understanding of the Zionist cause, sympathizes with the Zionists, understands the Torah demands which include for the Jews to inhabit all the Promised Lands, something modern Zionists have come to accept as the borders of the Negev with the Sinai Peninsula, the Blue Line border with Lebanon, the Jordan River and Dead Sea and a straight line down to Eilat at the Red Sea, the defined borders with Gaza (it was given up by treaty thus Israel has no claim to Gaza unless attacked and a state of war with Israel as the defending power with recognized grievance) and the Golan Heights and Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) with northern Jordan, eastern Lebanon and the remnant and whatever eventually becomes of Syria. David Friedman is fully cognizant of the fraud and futility of the Two State Solution and recognizes the world’s owed promises and guarantees granted to Israel including Article 80 of the United Nations Charter which gives full recognition of the Mandate system and all promises and guarantees granted within by a unanimous vote originally in the League of Nations and subsequently by the ratification of the United Nations Charter by the founding members of the United Nations. This means that the above borders are the recognized borders for the State of Israel which is defined as the Jewish homelands. Having a true friend who would have Israel’s back, rather than placing knives in said same back, would be a welcome change. It might even take a period of adjustment before the Israeli government realized there was a new friend in Washington D.C. and his liaison of Ambassador David Friedman being equally if not more so warm and supportive.

 

There is one last item which any Israeli Ambassador need know, and it is something nurtured and cultivated by leftists worldwide. There exist a number of factions within the Israeli political structure which are against Zionism and wish to change Israel from being the Jewish State with a democratic form of governance into a multicultural democratic governance where the Jews are merely a plurality and have no special acceptance or treatment by the government. These same post-Zionist, Arab separatists, Arab supremacists, and simply secular anti-religious factions all actually support UNSC RES. 2334 with Meretz Chairperson MK Zehava Galon said she was happy the US did not veto the resolution “against the policy of annexation and settlement and not against Israel.” She pointed out the vote was “the direct result of the law to legalize settlements, with Israel having lost all its shame and the world having lost its patience.” Obviously Meretz Chairperson MK Zehava Galon is not a Torah scholar and unlikely a fully Torah observant Jew if she is a practicing Jew at all. She has all the right, or should we say left, signs to qualify her as a pure secularist who is possibly ashamed of the Jewishness of many Israelis and we probably make her uncomfortable, or at least louder. These people should be given identical respect with which one will conduct business with any lifers from the State Department. Ambassador David Friedman needs to realize that the State Department is stridently anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-religious Jews, especially those residing in Israel and they go ballistic about those residing in the heartlands of ancient Israel, Judea and Samaria.

 

The reality is with Ambassador David Friedman there is an actual possibility that the Arab Israeli conflict will no longer rest on the false premise of a Palestinian people separate from the rest of the Arab nations. The Arab League and almost, if not, every Arab national, religious, social, NGO and political leader will make claim that the Arab Palestinians are a separate people and an ancient people who despite having almost identical histories, speaking the same language, believing the same religion right down to their Sunni roots and split between Wahabbist and Muslim Brotherhood, genetic traits, identical DNA, relatives throughout the Middle East and North Africa, surnames denoting their belonging to the same tribes (for example Murad Al-Sudani who is the Secretary General of the National Association of Shahids’ Families for the PA as Sudani means from the Sudan, not native Palestinian), are recent immigrants from over the past century, and there being no record of any nation called Palestine and as recently as 1947 claiming they were from southern Syria or Syria itself. The entire concept of a Palestinian people was invented in 1964 in Moscow between Yasser Arafat and the founders of the PLO with assistance from the KGB Middle East Bureau and the KGB Intelligence Branch where they crafted a history using the exact same story as from Jewish history except some names were changed and others simply coopted such as Moses and Jesus instantly became Palestinians and Jesus was not crucified by the Romans but by the Zionists who operated the Roman rulers who were blinded by the Zionist crafty manipulations. They claim all of Israel and will not settle for anything short of a Jewish free nation of Palestine from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. Further, Ambassador David Friedman knows the truth about the Arabs, the nations of the world and all that we learned from recent events at the United Nations. When the time comes and the Arabs have stolen all the land with the world’s blessings and applause, the real demons of the world will be brought to the fore. The PA will make the grand gesture allowing, though it will appear as a demand, for the Jews to leave Palestine, as Jews will not be tolerated, and seek refuge amongst the nations of the world. This is where the world will have a severe case of déja-vu as nation after nation will find their quotas filled, their shores already overcrowded, their nations already having too many of those, of us and they will refuse the Jews just as was with the Jewish refugees who were refused in Cuba and their travails began during the World War II Voyage of the Damned on the ship MS St Louis. After the world has washed their hands of the Jews, then the slaughter of the remaining Jews will begin and the world will act shocked and horrified, the critical word is ‘act’ as there will be little remorse in the high seats of power, only a pat on the back for a job well done. These are the reasons that David Friedman must be ratified as the next American Ambassador to (and for) Israel. The Israeli government should settle for nobody else refusing the presentation of papers from any pretenders standing firmly in a demand for David Friedman, period.
