Iran and Proxies Increasingly Threatening Israel Part II

 

This has been the misconception of late by Hamas, Hezballah and Iran, that Israel is simply second-rate and not up to facing their masterful and complete dominance. That is obvious in the above quote of the Supreme Leader’s Tweet. He believes the IDF is just not the same IDF as the great victor in the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. He thinks the IDF has gone soft and can no longer even fight against the terror groups amassed on her northern and southern borders. Needless to point out, despite his assessment, there has been no order for these two groups to actively attempt to destroy Israel. One can only wonder why the hesitance if the IDF is so powerless against these two supreme Arab forces. Perhaps we can explain the reason that they have not truly tested Israel. The reason that the IDF has appeared weak is two fold. The last confrontation in Lebanon the commanders were told to use restraint and not to completely destroy every and anything which posed a threat. The recent barrage from Gaza killed a Palestinian Arab and injured perhaps a dozen or so people and traumatized a fair number but did next to no damage despite over four-hundred rockets fired. This was because the Iron Dome intercepted close to two-hundred of the rockets preventing them from striking heavily residential or other regions. The Israeli defense basically rendered the Hamas rocket barrages mute. The same would be the case for any barrage of the tens upon tens of thousands rockets, and now some guided missiles, which Hezballah could fire, as the Israeli Iron Dome is just for the short range rockets. Israel also has three (perhaps four or five or more) other known (and unknown) systems which launch interceptors (or energy beams) to destroy incoming longer-range projectiles. The reason the IDF has not utterly devastated the entirety of Hezballah and Hamas weapons inventories and their support structure is because they have been restrained. Launch what you claim to be contemplating; an all out effort by all your combined forces in Gaza, Lebanon and the IRGC from Syria and possibly out of the Sinai Peninsula and then you will witness the true abilities of the IDF. Of course, the vast majority of those you order to engage Israel will not be able to tell about the force that struck them so fast and hard that they were frozen in place as they, will have gone to their virgins. Israel would prefer to make peace with her neighbors and all that is required for such a peace is the ability with Islam in general and the neighbors of Israel to settle the Palestinian Arabs outside the borders promised to Israel, the Jewish State, by the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, the British Crown and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. We do not desire to rule the world, to expand our borders beyond what was promised, or to interfere with any other worldly affairs, we would be simply quite pleased to be allowed to live our lives within our promised borders and share our discoveries with everyone, assist all who are suffering from some cataclysm, assisting those we can using advanced technology and agricultural methods and otherwise aiding the world the best we are able in exchange for being allowed the privilege of doing such.

 

But the leaders of Iran (formerly Persia but they decided that Aryan would be a better name in 1935 in order to proclaim their being the origins of the Aryan race) desire to complete the world of Adolph Hitler by engaging in a second Holocaust despite their denial that the Nazis ever conducted the original Holocaust. The people of Iran are not the enemies of Israel and many would be some of our greatest friends if only they were ruled by representative governance. Before 1979 and the “Iranian Revolution,” actually more the American experiment gone wrong in Iran thanks to President Jimmy Carter, the man who claimed the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was a man of the cloth so he had to be righteous and peace-loving. This was just another great reckoning with a fantasy, and not reality, by the one, and thankfully only, Jimmy Carter. The rest, as they say, is history which includes the unfortunate hostage crisis which held fifty-two American citizens for four-hundred-forty-four days before folding the day that Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. Of course, there are a thousand million conspiracy theories that Reagan and the Republicans were behind the hostage crisis in order to defeat Carter. Whatever. These are the Iranians which the world is dealing with currently.

Now we would like to introduce the world to a simple, but apparently beyond the ability of Westerners to understand, reality. Western Civilization, for what it is worth, has no current concept of world conquest as these civilizations have given up on ruling the world. The Greeks, Romans, Spanish, Portuguese, British all tried and failed never quite recovering from their efforts. The United States gave it an effort after the Spanish-American War but quickly realized it was a spider’s web which would only ensnare them and rob the nation of her vitality. The United States then fought wars of liberation and until recently never attempted nation building or democratizing those nations they fought to liberate. These recent attempts at democratizing and nation building have inured the United States economically and challenged the fabric of the nation. The one item we must give credit to President Trump is his lack of desire to fight the world through military force and influence. It is unfortunate that he has continued the United States presence in Afghanistan and elsewhere other than support for the Kurdish people, as other than the Kurds the rest of the Middle East only wants the United States to bleed for them and then bag up their dead and go home. The United States does not need such friends, as these friends take far more than they will ever willingly provide. Israel need learn, or at least continue to recall this message, that most of those in her neighborhood are more than willing to sacrifice your forces for their power enhancement but will be on the other side when the wars come to your border. The United States is able to recover from such mistakes, over a decade or three, possibly a century, but recover she will and remain strong the entire time. Israel does not have that recuperative power, at least not on paper or spreadsheet. Israel does have that spirit which had saved the United States in periods passed, and Israel will keep that spirit into the future, as it has been a gift of the Jewish People to be leaders in innovations and experts at their own survival. The Jewish People may have survived because the Romans attempted to destroy them by spreading them throughout and beyond their empire placing them in every known nation of their time.

 

This dispersal, as history refers to this method of destroying a people, was a Roman practice for destroying persistent enemies. There are only two peoples for whom this was used by the Romans as far as historians have been able to tell. The better-known one was the dispersal of the Carthaginians, originally the Phoenicians, who were dispersed after the Romans salted the earth around Carthage and they faded into history, unless you have met a Carthaginian lately. The lesser known was the dispersal of the Judeans, by the Judans and eventually the Jews, and the one to survive despite this treatment. The reason these two peoples were chosen for such respect was the fact that they rose against the might of Rome on three occasion each, for the Carthaginians they were the Punic Wars which every naval and land officer in Western armed forces studies, and the Jews were of lesser degree but did succeed in throwing off Roman rule, even if only temporarily until they assembled the required legions, of the overwhelming numbers of legions the second time, twice. Still, the Romans preferred their conquered people to be nice, quiet people who acquiesced to Roman dominance with an almost appreciative submission. But the Jewish People survived because they held to something more important and more powerful than land, they held a core of principles which revolved their lives around Torah. The Jews had a sense of a specific purpose to be a light unto the nations and always held to the belief that Hashem would return them to their homelands and that there would come a Messiah always in the future. They had their belief in Hashem as the One Deity and that all idols were simply powerless gods. This kept them steadfast with the belief that any suffering was penance for past sins, past grievous sins, and that there was a future coming where they would return to their homelands and the lands would welcome them and bloom. The early Zionists might have questioned the immediacy of the land blooming, but thanks in great measure to their work on a water system, the land blooms and grows crops the world over sees as some of the most advanced in agricultural sciences. It took patience as there was one prophet who predicted the exact date, well year, that the return would come and it had to do with the number of years by which the first exile in Babylon was cut short because of our good behavior and promises to not again wander from the true path. Well, the Second Temple was destroyed which should tell you that the Jews strayed again. But there was the promise which gave a date, according to Ezekiel, who said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from Hashem. This was to become the Babylonian exile. The Persians under Cyrus the Great defeated the Babylonians and freed their Jewish captives about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon. This left 360 years which the Jews would require a second exile to fulfill, as one must pay Hashem when one strays. In Leviticus 26:18, Leviticus 26:21, Leviticus 26:24 and Leviticus 26:28 the Torah spells things out quite clearly, should the Jews not fully repent their sins they would be punished increased by a factor of seven. This meant their time in the Diaspora, or under foreign occupation, became 2,520 years on the original lunar Jewish calendar which translates to 2,484 years on the adapted lunar-solar calendar used today. Count from 536 BCE forward 2,484 years and you arrive at 1948. Additionally, there is Isaiah’s prophecy Chapter 66:8 which states: “Who has heard of a thing like this? Who has seen things like these? Will a land be brought forth with labor pains in one day? Or will a nation be born at one time? For Zion has come into labor pains as well as given birth to her sons.” Israel was basically set by vote of the United Nations as well as her own declaration to be born on a set date. These are among the miracles we have seen even to the modern era, and yet there are those who argue our legitimacy.

 

Iran goes one-step further and declares they will destroy Israel and the United States on their way to world conquest. Oh, that’s right, that is something that the developed world gave up on and does not believe that any nations believe in world conquest. That is how fast they forgot Hitler and for many their own histories and their ideas of world conquest. Well, those who believe in the Quran and the Hadiths are still seeking world conquest because their holy book demands such from them and they believe that Allah will give them the world as their oyster. The Torah and the Old Testament does not declare that Israel or the Jews should ever desire or expect to rule over anything beyond the lands which Hashem promised to Abraham. No world conquest exists in our books. We are to be a light unto the nations of the world which means that there have to be other nations for us to serve as an example of how to live. We are to be the ones making the world greater by example and gifts we provide through our research and developments. Israel has been providing remote African villages with agricultural knowhow and developments, water purification systems, cell towers and electricity from solar systems backed by rechargeable batteries in order to connect them with the outside word and improve their lives. Contrary to those who malign Israel, all we honestly desire is exactly what was promised to the Jewish People after World War I, our lands under the Mandate System which gave our borders to be the Jordan River on the east, the Mediterranean Sea on the west and our current borders with Egypt and Lebanon on the north and south with the Arabs repatriated with their original homelands. The vast majority of the Palestinian Arabs were also immigrants who came into Israel, either seeking economic advantages or were forced into Israel by the British, French and Arabs in efforts to prevent the Jews from ever reestablishing their homelands. The Holocaust had nothing to do with the establishment of Israel, as this was the intent of the San Remo Conference of 1920 and the following measures of the Mandate System established by the League of Nations and enforceable by the United Nations under Article 80 of their charter. That is what we desire and know will come to pass with time. That is the truth which has been completely disregarded and replaced with claims that Israel was founded on the Arab homelands of Palestine. There has never been any nation called Palestine and that is merely the Roman name for the greater region around Israel which includes Jordan. Iran also ignores this reality and claims, the same as the old anti-Semitic claims of history, that the Jews, Israel, are masters controlling the world and responsible for every war and misfortune which humankind suffers. They claim that they are saving the world in their quest to destroy Israel and following by conquering the world bringing it their version of Shiite Islam. Do not wonder, the Iranians are not the only ones who are out to conquer the world. Islam, as a religion, is based upon the conquest of the world and the conversion of every human to whatever form of Islam the conquering Muslims practice. Then there is the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who believes that he is to establish the second Ottoman Empire and from there conquer the rest of the world, something that the initial Ottoman Empire fell a little short, by four continents or more. These are the ones seeking to conquer the world; Israel just wants what was promised by the world after World War I. Iran will not conquer Israel and thus not the world. For those who are entertaining world conquest, please just leave us alone, thank you.

The International Ploy to Destroy Israel

 

The Arabs generally and the Palestinian Arabs particularly will never give-up on their dreams to destroy Israel. The history of this is something which we have spoken of before and will not repeat the litany of pogroms, riots, wars and propaganda thrown at this obsession since the start of the return of Zionist Jews over a century and a half, from the 1850’s to the modern era. The cost in lives and treasure to both sides is incalculable. What we wish to discuss here is the latest pathway, the new strategy, which has been employed largely by Mahmoud Abbas over the last decade and a half and now more generally by Palestinian Authority (PA) officials as well as a smattering of others. The most recent use came from Palestinian Authority official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki. The tactic is referred to as internationalizing the problem and it is only natural that the root of the problem and the cause for it remaining unsolved would be pressing for another route to futility. The one secret which is seldom admitted in English, but spoken of quite freely in Arabic, is that any solution which allows for even the smallest remnant of Israel as a Jewish State remains, the Arabs will refuse to end their working to destroy that entity. The sole acceptable final solution is a form of the Final Solution which some have claimed was introduced in the Wannsee Conference by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II working with the Nazis and mixing amongst the elite in Berlin. This has been carried down through the interceding time by his protégés Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas. Obviously, this illness is contagious as the entirety of the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds are thoroughly infected and the contagion is sweeping through Europe once more with the seeds already sprouting in the United States. We have already witnessed this disease of the mind and heart take command of a conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

Further breakouts of this disease have taken the form of Zionism equals racism which was passed by the United Nations General Assembly in their Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 with 32 abstentions, which actually stated that the United Nations General Assembly has “determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.” It took sixteen years before the United Nations revoked their Zionism is racism manifesto in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 which read as follows, “The General Assembly Decides to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975.” That was quite a bit less lengthy than the original which referred to Zionism at least three times in expounding on it as being every form of racism. Well we guess that apologies are often less full of bluster and considered appropriate opprobrium as embarrassment is best stated as one is moving past as rapidly as they are able. It would be difficult to be more curt than that removal of a stain which had been worn by most in that world body with pride and in many a way is still worn with prideful abandon to this day.

 

Meanwhile, PA official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki speaking at the MED Dialogues conference in Rome insisted, “The Palestinians are still waiting for the international community to try to resolve the Palestinian problem that has been created by the international community.” With this, he continued blaming the international community with the foundation of Israel in 1948. Quoting further protestations, he continued, “Unfortunately, none of you is taking serious, credible and responsible steps to solve the problem.” Then turning to defame both President Trump and his entire administration, Riyad al-Maliki added, “which has really sided with Israel, taken the wrong side of history, of justice.” Wrong side of justice, really? But he was far from finished, as he stated further, “If the Americans are not willing to do anything, Europe should do that.” And finally getting to the point, he insisted, “We should force the change to happen, that’s why we are pushing for a European role” including backing an international peace conference.” Finally, we have the crescendo heading to the conclusion which is, “It’s not our responsibility to protect the two-state solution, it’s your responsibility.” I don’t believe any of you will accept another apartheid regime to emerge in the 21st century.” Remember that Mahmoud Abbas has flatly refused to even consider any proposal put forth by President Trump and is now insisting that an international group resembling the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its make-up be established to decide the fates of the PA and Israel.

 

Why are they insisting on such an assembly that will decide what actually needs to be resolved between the two parties? The reason is that the Palestinian Arabs’ leaders do not desire a solution but dissolution of the Jewish State and they know a UNGA styled conglomerate would easily pass anything the Arabs proposed while refusing everything proposed in favor of Israel. They would readily accept making Palestine defined as the Green Line and the Jordan River with its capital in East Jerusalem and then further rule that Israel be ruled by Arab leadership where there are guarantees that the Jews will be treated as the world body would expect. Somehow, such a situation does not fill the Jews of Israel as an idea with which we would be able to live, and that is our main problem with having the Arabs as our masters, history had taught us how that would end. All one need do is look at the vast majority of resolutions condemning Israel passed by the UNGA as well as the Human Rights Council, UNICEF, UNESCO and the other various tentacles of the United Nations. The General Assembly on these matters likely averages, we estimate, at 115 favor sanctioning Israel, 9 opposes such sanctioning and around 35 abstain or vote present. Is it any wonder that Israel would refuse to allow for her fate to be decided largely by the 57 Muslim States in league with the majority of the over 100 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement of developing nations? That would be very similar to over one-hundred hungry wolves with around ten fat and happy sheep surrounded by thirty-five large rocks all voting as to what should be dinner. The rocks do not care, the sheep bleat softly unable to be heard over the cacophonic din of howling wolves right before their feast. That is what the Palestinian Arabs are seeking, complete and total victory leading to the eradication of the Zionist entity and those who comprise the Jewish State.

 

As stated, this ploy is not new and will fail as it has to this point. The problem comes when one realizes that every last demand ever made by the Arabs has eventually come to pass. They simply choose the next target and then relentlessly pursue that goal using Saudi and others oil money and skillful use of all forms of media, something easily accomplished with the funds available. This has been carried further with oil money buying Middle East Department Chair which determine the course material and information provided, none of which gives Israel even the hint of legitimacy and proclaims the lie that Israel was Europe’s apology for the Holocaust. This is completely invalid as the initial start for the founding of Israel was the formal agreement to accept the Balfour Declaration letter of 1917 enjoining it to the San Remo Conference which was adopted further by the League of Nations into the Mandate System which was adopted by the United States in the Anglo-American Treaty and finally adopted by the United Nations in Article 80 of their charter. All of these events dated before World War II with the exception of the United Nations assuming responsibility for final enforcement of the Mandates from after World War I. Further steps are in the works and already bearing fruit for the Arab side as they are gaining influence on the public school systems and particularly the printing of history books and their references to the Middle East even to have included maps which show Israel as an invader which is erasing a former nation of Palestine. The small and possibly insignificant truth is that there has never been a nation called Palestine, no nation other than modern and ancient Israel and Judea have had Jerusalem as their capital city. Yet the insistence is that history must teach how the Jews have usurped the lands west of the Jordan River blaming it on European colonialism and demanding that the Jews return to their origins in Europe. That begs the question as to what the other half of Israeli Jews, whose nation of origins which forced them out after stealing their wealth, businesses, homes and anything valuable were the numerous Arab states, supposed to do. Will Libya, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the rest take back these Jews and their children and grandchildren? That is highly doubtful. Then there are the children whose parents are one from Europe and the other from an Arab nation, what to do with these children. Perhaps this is where the solution by King Solomon might apply, well, except the Arabs claim that King Solomon either never existed and never built any temple or that he was a Muslim and he build a Mosque. Colleges across Europe and the United States are teaching a creeping form of anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and are taking no discernable efforts to curb anti-Semitism. These are the future leaders of the world, the nations of Europe and the United States as well as Canada, and their falsehoods learned now as the real truth will forever have effects upon their thinking. This is part of why the Palestinian Arabs refuse every treaty which leaves Israel existing in any form as the Jewish State and not with the Arabs ruling over the Jews, as they explain, the Quran states that this is the natural order of the world. The Quran also divides the world into two camps, the one of peace where Islam rules and the ones of war waiting to be conquered by Islamic forces. The Quran presumably claims that no lands once ruled by a Muslim must ever be permitted rule by any other. That makes Israel a problem as long as it is ruled by Jews.

 

This Arab-Israeli conflict is a simple conflict to understand once the reality is understood. This is not a war over land, if that were the case, it would have been resolved by now. This is not about Israel being a colonial power placed in the heart of the Islamic world. That claim is a simple means of falsifying the Jews claim to their ancient homelands. As far as Islam is concerned, the Jews never resided in the area of Israel despite evidence. This is true under Islam which believes that history started when Islamic forces marched against the Jews of Medina and against Mecca before moving out of the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the world. That was between 710 and 725 A.D. This is why they missed ancient Israel which was destroyed by Rome in 135 A.D. and its peoples spread throughout the Empire so as to assure that the world would never again know the Jews, just as they had dispersed the Carthaginians in order to erase them as a people. Today one would be hard pressed to find a Carthaginian and despite being a small minority, the Jews still exist and leave their mark on the world. Sometimes these newer religions have a difficulty imagining the Jews who have a three-thousand year plus history going back to somewhere around 2500B.C.E. when Abraham left for the lands the Lord would show him. That actually would mean that the history of the Jewish People which begins with the birth of the Israelites with Abraham making the contract with Hashem somewhere around 4500 years ago. That was when the initial promise was made. Somewhere soon after this date was when Abraham paid premium price to purchase the Cave outside Hevron in which to bury Sarah. Eventually Sarah would be joined in burial there by Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah all in good time. The cave and the field before it were purchased by Abraham which was the first area of land that our forefather purchased and from which Israel came into being. That is the Jewish claim to these lands.

 

This war is to deny the Jews a homeland and to make them wanderers despised wherever they reside. The Muslims do not recognize any right of the Jews as they see the Jew as an accursed brute to be scorned and put down regarding them as barely human. The hatred taught by Islam of the Jews is beyond imagination. People from the Western developed world cannot begin to fathom the vile acrimonious contempt the Middle Eastern Arab Muslims feel towards Jews. That is the basis for their war against Israel. Just review the history. Half a dozen Arab nations sent their armies to aid the militias in destroying the Jewish State on the morning of her birth in 1948 and they failed. Again, in 1967 we had the Six Day War where Arab forces from at least six or seven nations failed to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the Sea. In 1973, there was another attempt to destroy the Jewish entity during the Yom Kippur War, and again they failed. This was the turning point when the Arab world invented a proxy to fight in their stead, the Palestinian Arabs. They were to utilize terror, warfare, propaganda and would be aided by the Arab world in destroying Israel in stages. This is a war of annihilation where the Jews must be eradicated. Hamas has in their charter the demand that every last Jew be hunted down and murdered. The PLO were not much different, they only claimed the desire to murder every Zionist and Jew in Israel. Do not believe the false claims that if only Israel would grant them their state that all would be well. Israel completely evacuated Gaza of Jews and any Israelis even those not Jewish and turned it over to the Arabs and we see what that produced, and it was a far cry from peace.

 

This is not a war over land, not a war over nationhood, not a war in any normal modern rules of engagement; it is a war of extermination and there will not be peace as long as Israel exists. Simply stated, Israel must be destroyed and the Jewish State be no more with all the Jews being slaughtered as would most of the Christians and people of other faiths. Even should Israel clear Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and allow Gaza to rule itself as a protected area where the IDF freely operates to prevent any terrorist group from starting to try and take control while clearing Area C of the Shomron and allowing the PA to rule as a semiautonomous region also protected by the IDF, this would not even approach being the end of the claims of the Arabs and their allies. Should the situation on all fronts explode into violence simultaneously, with Gaza, Shomron and Lebanon, overseen by Hamas, the PLO and Hezballah, throwing everything they could at Israel and Israel counterstrike destroying all adversaries, that would only allow a pause. There would then begin terror strikes across all borders. In Lebanon Israel would be holding everything south of the Litani River and to the east there are the Golan Heights and the Jordan River and to the south Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula, a wild place inhabited largely by terrorists and criminal elements and largely untamed by Egypt. The war would continue and there is nothing which Israel could do to end this conflict. Even should Israel turn off the electricity, natural gas, water and end the tractor-trailers carrying tons of goods daily into Gaza, they would simply allow their public to live without basic necessities just to continue to manufacture rockets to fire into Israel. They would continue to surround the rocket launchers with children, have women encircle any building Hamas needs and have their commanders and leaders crawling into their bunker located under the al-Shifa Hospital. The only way for peace to be attained is either Israel and the Jews are destroyed or Islam reaches a point where they no longer insist that they rule the world and every knee bend to Allah. The first is not going to happen if it can be avoided and the second will not be an easy transformation. Despite what the developed world thinks, there are still those whose fancy is to rule the entirety of the globe, and those who merely desire to take the initial steps feeling assured that their efforts would lead to world domination. Apparently, world domination had rested on waiting for Israel to be crushed. As Israel has resisted crushing, the Muslim world has already begun to prepare for the second phase, infiltration through massive illegal immigrants just entering demanding asylum. These waves have struck Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, Greece and have begun in North America. Apparently, Israel is contained though they will always try and destroy her. The question before the world now is how they are going to deal with creeping Sharia and its implications. The time to act has long passed and still little if anything has been performed which would act to prevent Sharia from entering our nations as it is a means of implanting an Islamic jurisprudence. What to do if the two sets of laws are in contradiction, the state law wins, initially followed by nightly rioting burning vehicles and terrorizing neighborhoods and pickets outside the Congress and other houses of parliament demanding that Islamic law is supreme and their old laws must yield to Sharia. Wake up now before it is too late, or is it already too late for most of Europe. Israel will hang on and remain, will your nation?

The Lesson Israel Must Apply to Hamas

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:05 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

This lesson is actually a lesson that it is imperative that Israel must learn first before anything further can be realized. One would hope that the Israeli leadership has by now realized that Hamas will attack every other year or whenever commanded to do so by Iran. This should be something near the top of their to-do list for finding a permanent solution. Contrary to what the world is always screaming over, there should be no economic crisis within Gaza. First, Gaza could be an economic engine providing a prime Mediterranean tourist haven with excellent economic opportunities. Instead, Gaza is a wrecked economy without even the basic utilities to provide for normalcy. Their waste treatment facilities have been left to fall into ruin. Their electrical power station and electrical grid are barely adequate and slowly disintegrating with close to one third if not more of their electricity provided by Israel providing the power towers and lines have not been destroyed again by terrorist actions. Gaza has not built a single desalinization plant since 2007 when Hamas took power despite sufficient monies provided by the European Union presumably set aside for building three such plants. There have been no hospitals or new schools built or even a Mosque. Military training camps have been built all across Gaza as have tunnel systems connecting bunkers, rocket launch positions, rocket storage facilities, military provisions and infiltration tunnels which Israel has had to destroy once they cross under the Gaza-Israeli border threatening Israeli civilians. One such tunnel was found leading to one of the kibbutzim ending right next to the kindergarten. The bunkers and tunnels have enough room for every Gazan to be protected during times of war but Hamas refuses to permit their civilians to take shelter often shooting those who have the audacity to seek such shelter. This past year, UNWRA had donations providing a $ 1.2 billion budget yet they claim they have no funds for food or schools. Where has all of that cash gone, one can only wonder. Further, Israel provides the majority of the clean water to Gaza as well as almost all, if not all, the natural gas. During the recent riots, which the media called peaceful demonstrations, the water and gas lines, which travel in tandem, were destroyed by the Hamas rioters (see images below). This has interrupted these provisions as attempting to repair them under the current situation would only result in the repair team being murdered. Even when things are considered peaceful, it requires a strong IDF presence to repair such pipes and electrical lines or the technicians would not survive to complete their repairs. This Israel has learned from past experience.

The recent confrontation, which Hamas initiated, partially interrupted the Israeli provided transfer of humanitarian provisions, some provided by the nations and organizations of the world and a fair proportion provided by Israel. Israel most often provides medical provisions and food and there are times when Hamas simply leaves the food to rot in the sun and destroys other aid thus causing much of the hardships suffered in Gaza. Hamas is sworn to destroy Israel and their efforts are not meant to actually defeat Israel but rather to make things difficult hoping the Jews will tire of these threats and run away. They claim that the Jews will run back home just as had the Romans, the Crusaders and eventually the Mongols. The problem with their logic is really simple, this is the home of the Jewish People and has been such for three thousand years, some figure closer to four thousand years, so we have nowhere to run home to, we are already home. They were the conquerors who rose from the Arabian Peninsula after the fall of the Roman Empire and at the end of the Byzantine Empire thus allowing the Arabs to spread across the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region from northern India to Morocco and northward to the gates of Vienna, twice. The Jewish People are the indigenous peoples of this region with the only other lasting peoples who resided here were the Phoenicians whose last gasp was as the Carthaginians who were dispersed by the Romans just as they had done to the Jewish People, then the Judeans, and the Carthaginians were never heard from again. There are some neighboring people who still exist including but not limited to the Kurds, Assyrians, Baha’I and the Persians far off to the east. So, when making the case as to who are the indigenous people in Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, even the Quran states that it belongs to the Jewish People. So, since it has been made overtly obvious that the Arabs have decided to abrogate their own recognition that the Promised Land belongs to the Jews with their promise from Allah that they will rule the world and all within will be servants of Allah as any other choice would have resulted in their being submitted by the sword. This is something the Israelis understand.

 

So, what is it that the Israeli leadership need learn? They are required to look back through history and recognize the almost unanimous means by which all previous conflicts have been resolved. The first thing one notices is that the colonial possessions of the British were amongst the very few which gained their independence without having to completely destroy the British and only required being steadfast in their desire and making life difficult that they were no longer a profitable colony. Almost every other conflict throughout History, the sole means of ending a conflict was having one side completely defeat, even to the length of annihilation, of their opposition. They won in a manner which was undeniable. Israel has, on three occasions, won a ground conflict undeniably but had not eviscerated the Hamas or Islamic Jihad command structure. The main reason that this was not accomplished was due to where the Hamas leadership with their counterparts in Islamic Jihad have established their main command and control bunker. This target is placed directly under, in a subbasement, of the main Gaza City hospital, the Shifa Hospital complex. The Shifa Hospital was originally built by Israel before the disengagement when Israel completely pulled out of Gaza ending any even imagined form of occupation. Gaza is ruled, completely independently from any Israel influences, by Hamas. The blockade was not put in place while the Palestinian Authority ruled in Gaza but once Hamas took over through a coup. Israel imposed security checks of imports to Gaza to assure that no war material entered Gaza. Israel has that part figured out.

 

Israel will need to do one obvious act to end the terror wars started by Hamas and joined by Islamic Jihad and other terror and criminal elements within Gaza, end the leadership and allow for the people to choose governance which will live with Israel peacefully. This will mean entering the tunnel system near the main command and control bunker, militarily take the bunker and take the people inside prisoner. Charge them with terrorist acts, crimes against humanity, war crimes and everything else which can be included. They will need to be incarcerated inside Israel in a special prison built specifically for these leaders where their contacts with the outside world are completely controlled. Israel does not desire to rule the people of Gaza and will gladly assist them improving the infrastructure providing they are willing to live peaceably. Should the people of Gaza elect another group of terrorist leaders and they return to their desire to destroy Israel, then Israel will be required to repeat the beheading of their governance and enlarging that special prison. Should the people of Gaza prove to be the problem by electing a third group of terrorists who insist on making war against Israel, then Israel will be required to clear Gaza and annexing it as part of Israel and develop it for the benefit of Israel, no longer its detriment. Gaza will need to be wiped clear of the entirety of its population as they will have proven that they will always be waging wars against Israel and that is unacceptable.

 

The immediate response to this last conclusion of what might be the final result if the people of Gaza continue to elect people to make war with Israel will be the United Nations passing condemnations from the General Assembly, the European Union will scream claiming this is outrageous and completely unacceptable, and many nations will be up in arms. The response from Israel should be to tell them, if you really feel that much love for these people, allow them to reside within your nation, as we will no longer tolerate their murderous ways. We have serious doubts that any of those complaining will lift a finger to assist the Gaza refugees and spend their entire effort on demanding that Israel live with a group of a few million people sworn to murder every Israeli living along the southern border of Israel. This must be refused by Israel and allow the world to get over their indignation and the problem will, as all such situations throughout history have, resolve itself in time. Perhaps the Roman method for addressing a group of people insistent on attempting to destroy their neighbors should be employed, spread them into small groups of five or so families in places far removed from one another such that they will have to learn to live with the people around them. If they still prove impossible to reside with as they start using terror to the detriment of their new community, then allow that community to decide their own solution. Israel will promise to understand and will not be amongst those screaming about the horrors of the situation.

 

As the world screams at Israel about the horrors of the Israeli responses to the violence thrust into Israel out of Gaza, many of the people of Israel, especially those residing in the south who are the main targets and enduring the suffering, also are responding to the horrors of what is being thrown at them and their children. There have been approximately one-hundred rockets on top of countless incendiary balloons and kites being launched starting fires and destroying entire fields of crops and forest lands where some are wildlife preserves in the past week since the ceasefire was presumably accepted. Reports claim that Israel agreed to the terms given by Egypt and the Hamas political wing accepted the terms which means that the European Union, United Nations and numerous nations and NGO’s have all accepted the idea that Israel must end any strikes into Gaza. What is not working is that the Hamas military wing refused the ceasefire and is still launching into Israel knowing the world has their back and will prevent Israeli responses (for results of these attacks see images below). This is nothing new as Israelis have seen all of this before and will unfortunately continue to use the same concepts and tactics as before once again and likely into the foreseeable future while expecting different results. That is the definition which Albert Einstein stated was the definition of insanity. Well, we are just saying. Israel has to try something entirely different as what they have been doing has been putting out flare-ups while never putting out the central inferno of hatred which will simply produce another flare-up as soon as they are able. The time has come to take out the inferno of hatred which will require taking over Gaza, removing all of Hamas and Islamic Jihad along with their supporting criminal elements and then allow the Gazans a chance to try peace and economic growth as they will not have 80% of their aid being stolen by terrorists to attempt to destroy Israel.

This will be their third attempt as the Palestinian Authority failed, which was why the people turned to Hamas which failed just as badly if not worse than the Palestinian Authority. The main difference was that Hamas eliminated any opposition, thus any Gazans wishing to live in a normal life providing for their family and leaving their children with hope and the promise that they will live a life which is better then their parents; and they can do the same for their children, and while residing in peace with Israel, both societies can benefit each other. On the other hand, should they choose terrorism and the destruction of Israel, then we have an intractable problem which has but one solution, wiping Gaza clean and reinstituting it as part of Israel and ending the problem through absolute defeat. As for the Gazans, they can choose peace or they can choose war, once Hamas and company are removed, then the Gazans have no excuse for choosing leadership centered on the destruction of Israel unless this is their hearts’ desire. If the destruction of Israel is their central core that unites their society, then their society requires being dispersed and Israel will provide the first step by removing them from Gaza and the world can take care of their dispersal. Once Israel finds it necessary to remove the entirety of the Gazan population for her own security, then once completing such a mission, Israel will simply turn a deaf ear to the screaming which will inevitably follow. Sometimes one must just go ahead and do what is required for their own safety and peace, and Israel has given the Arabs, who became Palestinian Arabs in 1964 through a coalition of Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas, a core of leadership, the Arab League and much aid and assistance from the KGB, more opportunities for peace than they deserved and must now consider simply dispersing them to the winds of fate. Anyone who is willing to be upset with Israel over such had best be very active right now demanding that Turkey end their genocidal wiping of the Kurdish People from northern Syria and at Iran and Iraq for their genocidal military actions against the Kurds in northern Iraq and Iran for starters and if they would like a list of other equally harmful actions against minority peoples around the world, drop us a note and we will provide a rough list which will not be complete but will provide a plethora of choices.
