The World Often Appears Insane

 

Well, not necessarily the whole world all at once, but there is plenty of crazy to go around. Currently, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights as well as being Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein of Jordan. That is right; he is one of the Crown Princes of Jordan and direct relative of Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan. He has instructed the United Nations Human Rights Council to distribute letters to over one-hundred-fifty major companies warning them that should they continue trading with Israeli companies which may have business dealings or selling their products in the “Occupied Territories,” also known as Judea and Samaria, then they will be black listed making it illegal for nations to use their products or services. Most of these companies appear ready to move all their operations from within Israel and possibly to cut off all trade with Israel. This is straight-forward blackmail and a blatant attempt to place universal sanctions on the nation of Israel.

 

This is in addition to the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) making rulings that divest Israel from the Temple Mount, the Cave of the Patriarchs (Cave of Machpelah where Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah are buried) Jerusalem, Hevron, Judea, Samaria and given time assuredly anyplace on planet Earth. All of these came after UNESCO became the initial United Nations agency to admit the Palestinian Authority under the guise of being the country of Palestine. This came on the heels of Mahmoud Abbas declaration declaring the end of the Palestinian Authority replacing that name on all paperwork, passports and other legal document with State of Palestine in January on Monday January 7, 2013. Then there is the fact that the UNHRC has as the initial part of the agenda for every gathering the denunciation of Israel as a required item. Below is a quote from UN Watch concerning the obsessive, one might say maniacal, nature of the United Nations General Assembly.

 

GENEVA, Dec. 21, 2016 – The UN General Assembly has wrapped up its annual legislative session by adopting twenty resolutions against Israel—click here for detailed chart—and only six resolutions on the rest of the world combined, with three on Syria, and one each on Iran, North Korea and Crimea.

 

If it were only the United Nations, it could be ignored; but it goes so much further. Recently, INTERPOL decided to admit Palestine as a new member nation. Just place that front and center in your mind and imagine INTERPOL sending their Palestinian inspectors to aid in finding the reasons behind the recent attack in Las Vegas. Additionally, the European Union has ordered Israeli goods to be marked separately if they were produced in Judea and Samaria. If the wording were to be carried to the ludicrous extent, then this special labelling could be placed on any item that might contain parts that were produced in Judea and Samaria. If one were to carry it to even further extremes, one could simply mark everything Israeli made as from Judea and Samaria. There have been some unintended consequences of this system where adopted as some people have actually sought items marked in this manner for purchase over items not carrying the stigma. Sometimes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, as we all know all too well. Then there have been a long list of European nations that have either recognized Palestine or passed rulings supportive of recognition but not actually formally recognizing Palestine. The Vatican also recognized Palestine. There actually is an internationally respected and often accepted document from the International Alliance for Holocaust Remembrance which contains a suggested legal Definition of Anti-Semitism. This definition has been accepted by many nations for prosecuting crimes but somehow the definition never quite gets applied to the government actions.

 

There is an area which deserves note, the many individual states within the United States which have passed laws making any invocation of BDS (boycott, divestment and sanction) against Israel by any government agency as well as business or company doing business or receiving State contracts illegal and as a disqualifying act. The Federal Government has not adopted such legislation despite it being potentially a part of their responsibility as part of international trade and dealing with a foreign nation. What most people are unaware of is exactly how and where the BDS movement began. The origin was the Arab boycott of all things Israel started in 1948 and decided upon before Israel was even declared a nation. The Arab League at the bidding of the PLO took the Arab boycott of Israel and decided after watching what happened with the Apartheid boycott of South Africa that they would adopt the same idea and reasoning with Israel. It does not matter that in Israel Muslims are granted all the same rights as Jews as are Christians and every religion, race and ethnicity. Israel is a multicultural democracy as well as the Jewish State. But the Arabs are betting that because Israel is the Jewish State that they can make people believe that only Jews have rights. That would be the same as believing that in France no one of English or German origins could have equal rights.

These efforts are playing on the historic idea the Jews are different and prefer other Jews and are united against non-Jews. They particularly misuse the Palestinian Arabs as not having rights in Israel where they have rights except voting as they are not Israeli citizens and most were Jordanian citizens and still have Jordanian passports. Claiming that Palestinians should have full rights in Israel would be equal to claiming that Mexicans should have full rights in the United States. But this works because of Arab propaganda which has a multi-billion dollar industry backing the efforts and have been attempting to destroy Israel for decades, actually over half a century and approaching a century. The Arabs have been fighting against allowing any Jewish State since the end of World War I after the Ottoman Empire was defeated and the Balfour Declaration was made public in 1917. Unfortunately, Israel does not have a department specially designed to fight this propaganda war and this proved a disaster after the Durban Conference (World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance) in 2001 which was turned into an Israel hate-fest. The following Durban Conferences were basic repeats of the original. These Durban Conferences have become so toxic that the United States, Israel, Canada and a number of European nations amongst others have refused to attend. But not to worry, hatred of Israel will remain a part of the world’s agenda in far too many places for as long as the Arab nations demand on pushing their agenda to destroy Israel and Islam insists on declaring their war against the Jews.

The United Nations wasted no time in assaulting Israel in the name of peace. The new United Nations special Middle East coordinator, Nickolay Mladenov, told the Security Council that “the coming period will be critical to the future of the peace process.” Allow me to interpret and translate United Nations speak to understandable English. The ‘coming period’ means that the process will be implemented every time we hit a snag in the negotiations. There will be no deviation from this tried and failed set of methodology and the same step by step onto failure as it has been, leading to a new ‘coming period’ which will be the same initiation each time there is a snag and starting anew demanding yet more Israeli concessions.

 

Now we come to the words, ‘will be critical to the future’ which will be the demands placed upon Israel to sacrifice by releasing more terrorists and relegating lands for a future Arab State and even unseen new demands and destructions will be demanded of Israel. The next phrase is ‘the future’ which will be the demand to allow all of Jerusalem be placed into the hands of an international committee overseen very likely through Rome or the European Union. It matters little which titular head will be perceived as the court jester who will wilt before Arab pressure as they assault the International City of Jerusalem and, as has been the rule before, all those tasked to keep Jerusalem as an international city and specifically tasked to guard against Israeli offences will flee to Israel seeking protection before fleeing back to Europe or New York while the Arabs take all of Jerusalem and Israel is warned to stand down and not take any counter steps as doing so would only make the situation in danger of exploding, and nobody wants to see explosions, especially if Israel is causing any of them.

 

And finally we reach the magic words, ‘of the peace process’ which are the magic trump cards which are always deployed as a bludgeon Israel. This is a cover-all which is utilized most when communicating what the new next demand to be made of Israel in order to be permitted a meeting with Abbas. The meeting with Abbas will have long discussions where new United Nations special Middle East coordinator, Nickolay Mladenov, and his advisors and other members of the team will be posing questions and offering proposals all the while there may be an occasional comment from the Arab Palestinian team members while Abbas continues his normal bobble-head performance as we described yesterday in The Uninterpretable Faces of Mahmoud Abbas in greater detail of his technique of never allowing anybody to pin him to having made a comment or any sign or inclination towards accepting any deal or terms proffered. If the negotiations ever make it to this point they will have reached levels thus far unattainable. Even making this progress is of no value as at any point Abbas could have one of his team question some point from anywhere in the entire trail which has been painfully tread in the process. This is an usual argument and negotiation where they will proceed and appear to be making progress as they collect Israeli concessions and now jump back days, weeks or months or even bring up some technical point from some former negotiations and drag the team back even to the very beginning of the negotiations. Meanwhile the Arab negotiators will demand that the United Nations team make sure that Israel gives up every last point which were even slightly referenced during the negotiations and will demand that they refuse to ever discuss the next step until Israel had met every demand made by the Arabs. That is when ‘future of the peace process’ process is trotted out and Israel is then demanded to surrender to every demand mentioned during the negotiations or talks made on the side of the talks in the absence of Israel where the United Nations agree to force concessions out of the Israelis.

 

There will be several obstacles placed to force the talks to stumble, utilizing these to push a reset taking the negotiations back to square one. Fortunately, we will not repeat translating every clause in the initial statement though those wishing to may do so, just return to the top of the article. Many of us who have tortured themselves and followed any of the former Arab-Israeli negotiations are fully aware that the basic formula is force Israel to meet, though they often call it comply making it appear that every Israeli concession as if it was a required and an obligation freely agreed upon by the Israelis but are often simply demands made by the Arabs and fully backed by the Europeans, United Nations, and lately the President of the United States.

 

Recently Professor Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor, commenting on a study recently released covering the European Union policy paper displaying the European Union’s flawed assessment and understanding of Israeli society and positions towards reaching peace with their Arab neighbors. This study being released immediately before European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini’s visit to the Middle East to meet with both the new Israeli leaders of the recently elected government and with Mahmoud Abbas and his fellow kleptocrats who have missed standing for election remaining in office for over a dozen years of their elected four year terms may give her reason to renew efforts for a more balanced study. In the European Union’s External Action Service 2014 Israel ENP Progress report, displayed the European Union’s relying almost exclusively on anti-Israel NGOs ignoring any actions or reports by or about the Israeli side neutrally or, Heavens forbid, friendly report. NGO Monitor found the report was so biased and slanted against Israel and had completely ignored any Arab attacks, rioting or other transgressions committed by the Arab Palestinians in their consistent war of aggressive attritions in their efforts to force the Jews to give up and simply leave. Thus far this has largely failed which may have a little something to do with the description the Jews were labeled with in Torah as being a stiff-necked and stubborn people. This description was made by Moses when attempting to make excuses for general transgressions against the covenant and other whining and complaints which came from the people at every difficulty or delay. I can attest that many Jews have not changed on the stubborn and stiff necked part but mostly more compliant to the covenant and commandments in Torah. The end result of the NGO Monitor report suggested for the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini to finally attempt to make some adjustments in the European reports possibly making them far more realistic. We are not betting that any such changes will be forthcoming from the European Union and Federica Mogherini will blindly follow the report and once again make all her demands for peace to be attained on Israeli leaders’ heads while simply agreeing with every demand made by the Arabs. Some leopards cannot change their spots and the Europeans cannot avoid their anti-Semitism. Fortunately there are some in Europe who have attempted to make changes and fight the unending trend to fall into the old habits of Jew hatreds but they are facing a monumental challenge and a severe and steep uphill slog before any progress. The recent moves by the Vatican and Pope Francis definitely were in complete agreement with the European Union reports and the basic reviews given by almost every European financed NGO, especially the government and Vatican financed organizations which operate in or about Israel. The United Nations can be included in with the Europeans except the United Nations, especially with their Durban Conferences which appear to be planned into the future to reinforce the Israel and the Jews are the reason for every ill of society, nations, continent, planet, solar system, galaxy or possibly universe, after all, Stephen Hawking has joined the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS Movement). Who’s next?
