Ugly Reality Mostly Ignored Shames Media

We felt that perhaps a small introduction to the article is necessary. We found sticking strictly to the subject to be terribly difficult, emotionally draining and psychologically vexing. We found writing about related facts and other connected subjects to be required for our own emotional needs. The rape of a seven-year old girl was to be so horrific that our emotions and anger resulting from even thinking about such a barbaric act to be too much, so please bear with us, thank you.

 

Outside of Israel and a few Jewish communities, the recent bestial rape by a Palestinian Arab worker at an elementary school, of a seven-year young girl near the school where two fellow Palestinian Arabs assisted holding the child down while berating her for being an Israeli and a Jew, has been ignored. Had such a crime been committed with the roles reversed, the world would have seen two-inch banner headlines. Such is something which will never be seen, bizrat Hashem. There are numerous items which were perpetrated and underlying this horrific act. It was not, as rapes often aren’t, a crime of passion. This was not fully a crime to impress superiority on the victim. This was a nationalistically driven act of terrorism meant to imply superiority over a Jew and “an occupier” which was helpless and did not even know how to fight. This was an act done to impel a right to take anything for their pleasure from the lands of their enemy. This was an act done to proclaim a victory over the Zionist Entity by defiling one of their women, even if the woman was a seven-year young child. This was a despoiling with intent to ruin a young mind, body and soul filling her with a dread which will haunt her the rest of her life. This was done in order to make her unfit for any other man and to claim to have destroyed a Jew. This was an act worthy of an idolatrous barbarian.

 

There is far more which should be understood by the rest of the world, specifically those who hate Israel without ever coming here to see what it is that they are supposed to hate and verify whether what they have been told is valid or false. The Arab view of Israel is that they will eventually destroy it even if they are forced to wait perhaps a few centuries. To many of the Arab Palestinians every Jew is a legitimate target for committing any atrocity against. The same would apply to an Israeli Christian or any Israel who is not a Muslim, or potentially not sufficiently Muslim. Theirs is an intent for domination, then humiliation and finally eradication. Their intent has not altered one iota since best described so succinctly by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League who stated, before six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel in May of 1948, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” This is their definition of their final victory. They claim to have patience able to wait centuries. Jews had the patience to wait two millennia to return to their ancestral homelands which were defined in Torah from three millennia ago. Sure, let it be a test of patience, we still have plenty in reserve. But more acts like this and the Israeli public will be demanding action to punish all these transgressors and to end their occupation of Israel.

 

But this act was intended to horrify Israelis. It should horrify anybody who has even a modicum of civility. People need to step back a moment and look at which side is building a nation which will benefit all of mankind and the other is out simply to destroy everything in their goal of fulfilling their hatred for the other. Israel offered to allow any Arab willing to live in peace from those who had fled to behind the Arab lines at the onset of their invasion. The Arabs who had fled believed the Mufti’s promise of sharing in the riches of the Jews after their glorious victory. Exactly what the Secretary General had described was the outcome most of the world expected, especially many Europeans from both sides of the just ended World War. When that was not the result and after Israel offered to allow the Arab return, their Arab brothers locked them up to use to crush Israel and to use as a pawn in the media and at the United Nations. They have suffered needlessly and for that the nations in which they have been imprisoned should be made to absorb them. Many Arabs in these camps have relatives who live in the city neighboring the camp. There are such camps within Gaza and the Palestinian Authority. Palestinian Arabs are kept in refugee camps by Palestinian Arabs. One of them just brutalized a seven-year young child. His was an act of domination just as had occurred just like during the massacres of the Mongols. This was an act harboring the origins of the horrors of past wars. Echoing the past as the Rape of Nanking, Viking raids, the conquests by barbarians throughout human history. This was an aberration peculiar to periods and mindsets of periods we had hoped mankind had evolved beyond. This was an act of primitive barbarism.

 

The question comes down to whose lands these are and under Islam everywhere is supposed to be ruled by them, though each group believes their Imam or ruler should rule everyone. The Palestinian Arabs had all the opportunities and choices open before them. They could have joined in building the lands for the benefit of both people. They could have chosen a relatively wealthy society with opportunities available to those with the drive to take them. Instead they chose to destroy, defile and putrefy everything they touched. Theirs is a society based upon hatred and destruction. You can leave Israel out of the equation and simply look at the actions of the PLO in Jordan and the PLO in Lebanon. The essence of their intents no matter their location or whose nation they are attempting to topple and destroy, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon or wherever they are found. During the Syrian civil war, which is still raging, the Palestinian Arab refugee camps was one of the initial flash-points in the early fighting. Theirs is the outlook of the world reflected with equal barbarity by the Islamic State, specifically when they were dehumanizing the Yazidis raping every female of almost any age. This is the world they want to spread as far and wide as they are able. This is what has occurred in much of Europe in the cities where Islamic gangs prey on Christian girls. One need look to England, in Manchester where they had Islamic grooming gangs which industrialized rape. Some will claim that what happened in this case was just one case and not anything which can be seen as troubling. Would the ‘it should not trouble anyone that women are being groped, raped and often grievously injured with some requiring hospitalization across Europe’ change their thinking. When such attacks are occurring in Sweden, Germany, France, Italy and Netherlands for further examples and we could continue. But right now, we are concerned with one specific example of what is obviously not just an Israel problem.

We keep meandering away from the rape of a seven-year young, and we keep emphasizing young because that is part of why this crime was so beyond all decency. This was a crime for which there is no suitable punishment. This rape cries out for equal pain, suffering, agony and torture of the spirit to be imposed on the rapist and his accomplices. The rapist had been arrested, but for reasons which escape us, the accomplices are still free. That needs to be rectified. What will be the end result of this unconscionable act? The state prosecutor’s office will take their time and allow as much time to pass as possible in order to have a trial with as little outside protest as they are able. They will sentence the perpetrator according to cold statistical measures and believe it is all over. That is not what required addressing. This miscreant is but one piece of a much larger problem which extends well beyond Israel, we have just been on the front line, the tip of iceberg and the only part which is visible and obvious before the world. Israel is the crux where this creeping, engulfing, divisive, supremacist, exclusionary infiltration permeating much of the Western Developed world and is subjected to scorn as others blame the victim for the criminal act of self-defense. One can bet that if a not too dissimilar crime were to be happened upon by an armed Israeli who shot the rapist, the headlines across Europe would be ‘Israeli shoots Palestinian in the Back’ and it would be the fourth or fifth paragraph when the activity of raping a young woman by the Palestinian Arab would enter into the articles. This is what Israel has faced and is the reason why this unthinkable criminal act is being ignored by most of the world, it was in Israel and they deserve what they get, not like the Europeans who are simply being left in the dark about their own difficulties. Yes, there exist articles about the criminal wave which has struck Europe with sex crimes at the top of the list of things the European public has been told they need to accept, it is simply a cultural thing. Just a cultural thing, allow that to sink in and then start to get upset. Why upset? Because it is your culture that the government is not enforcing and instead foisting a foreign culture upon the indigenous Europeans.

 

What to do about these problems? The first step is to have the media start reporting the truth. Next is the police need to enforce laws and apply them to the incoming immigrants. But that would lead to a war in the streets, that is not worth it as it would make things more difficult. Where does anybody honestly believe that allowing another culture to come in and exist, according to the governments, side-by-side in peace and happiness. Well my friends, it will not remain or ever actually match that description. This is a culture war and if you do not fight it now, then you will lose later, those are the choices. You can surrender and become nice little Dhimmis or your can decide that the culture which your society has lived and developed for two millennia is worthy of saving. Of course, that will require the people getting engaged and actually doing something. The government, authorities, law enforcement and everybody else, possibly even the military, are telling the people that everything will be fine, it is just an acclimation process. What they are not telling you is that it will be you doing the acclimating and the Muslims dictating how your culture will become. This is why the European elite hate Israel, we decided to fight for our culture and they are incensed that Israel is making them look in a poor way, the Jews are showing them up and they have no answer. This is the result of the Secular Humanist outlook where no culture is worth more than any other thus your culture is unworthy and not in need of defending because it has no value. This is the mindset of your leaders and they are going to allow all of Europe to go down without even a murmur, and they will come down on you should you make too much fuss. Just accept your fate as it was the lack of the current generation having children which brought on the necessity of importing immigrants to work, but the ones they have brought are not working, they are lying in wait until they reach the tipping point where they can take over and rule Europe. You continue to be silent and that will be your future, meanwhile, here in Israel we will keep right on screaming and making a fuss. We want to live and to do so as our own people with our own culture building our future. The Palestinians have no interest in their future, they simply seek our destruction, and Europe wishes we would allow this silently. We will not, what about you?

France Topples Over and Beyond the Cusp into Parallel Universe

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:58 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

 

France apparently is afraid to even place an Islamist murderer of Jews on trial. This has become their modus operandi when any Muslim murders a Jew. The most recent case one can read here plus another look at this here is about the murder of Sarah Halimi. One can only wonder how long before the French judicial system finds these two murderers to also be unfit to stand trial for their murder of Mireille Knoll. This was the only way the trend in France could have ended as carefully reported in this article. What makes this all the more troubling is that it was the result of a general slide to viewing any Jew murdered, threatened, attacked or verbally harangued by any Muslim as some form of justifiable action simply as a result of their culture. This is where the leftist ideology that no culture is superior to any other leads a nation. This is the road much of the Western World is merrily traveling down and those traditionalists who call out the danger are mocked as Islamophobe or some other equally damning epithet as even being a nationalist is considered criminal behavior requiring reeducation.

 

Sarah Halimi and Mireille Knoll

Sarah Halimi and Mireille Knoll

Quoting from an article, “How the murders of two elderly Jewish women shook France,” we read in the Guardian International Edition, we found this to be quite interesting.


No fewer than 12 Jews have been killed in France in six separate incidents since 2003: Sébastien Selam, Ilan Halimi, Jonathan Sandler, Gabriel Sandler, Aryeh Sandler, Myriam Monsonégo, Yohan Cohen, Philippe Braham, François-Michel Saada, Yoav Hattab, Lucie Attal and Mireille Knoll. In each of these cases, at least one of the perpetrators was from what the French call minorités visibles, or “visible minorities”, which typically refers to those of north African or west African descent; in most cases, the perpetrators have been linked with some form of extremist Islam. In nearly every case, the victims have been either identifiably Jewish or personal acquaintances of the perpetrator.

Reading the names, one stood out for two reasons, first is that the young man’s name, Ilan Halimi, shares the last name of Sarah Halimi from the story above. Ilan’s story is about as horrific as one might ever read as reported in the New York Times. That is another reason his name was so noticeable. Almost all of the murders and attacks made upon Jews, not only in France but throughout Europe, in the United States, Canada, here in Israel and around the world share one singular fact, the victim is almost always somebody completely unable to fight back or offer any form of resistance unless armed and holding the weapon before the attack, an unlikely event. In New York City, in some of the most Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods, there have been numerous attacks registered with the police where young men and teens attacking religiously dressed Jews from behind with a one-off and then run often striking them with sufficient force to knock them to the ground. Again, these are attacks from behind without warning against either Jewish youth or middle aged or older men. This report in Haaretz tells the grim tale along with links to further information.

 

This rise in anti-Semitism is virtually worldwide and has crept into culture which even showed its ugly head in Israel during the Eurovision 2019 Song Contest in Tel Aviv where the group from Iceland, Hatari, as they unfurled their ‘Palestine’ banners at the televised Final and sang “Hate will prevail,” as commented on by Barry Shaw in his article Hate prevails in Iceland. Barry Shaw expounds on the historic prevalence of anti-Semitism across Icelandic history. But historic anti-Semitism is not a prerequisite for modern anti-Semitism, though it does appear to make it more apparent. Recent reports have indicated that the trend is a universal problem around the world as reported here and here. There actually is one place where Jews can find relative peace of mind that they are unlikely to be attacked, and that is Israel. As odd as it might seem, but inside Israel, especially Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Netanya, Peta Tikvah and Nahariya. Most of Jerusalem is safe but we did not list it due to the problems which reoccur almost on schedule coinciding with Jewish Holy Days. It is true that the High Holy Days the rioting on the Temple Mount starts a couple of weeks before and continues for up to three weeks or so after simply to deny Jews the right to ascend to the Temple Mount. The Palestinian Arabs know that when they riot, the Jews are barred from visiting the Temple Mount as the Waqf will blame the Jews for the rioting always claiming that the Jews defiled the al-Aqsa Mosque or some other invention and insist that the Jews not be permitted to visit the Temple Mount until the Arab rioting is over. Yea, we thought that made a whole lot of nonsense as well, but those are the rules.

That brings us to our final point. It concerns the Palestinian Arab-Israeli conflict. There can be only one nation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea as the region is about the size of New Jersey and almost the same shape (see map above). New Jersey has a population of just over nine-million while Israel has a population currently of just over eight and a half million. When one considers the rising anti-Semitism, it is not out of line to foresee a time in the not too distant future when Jews will either be fleeing or be dispossessed and deported from any number of nations something similar as to what happened to most Jews from the Arab World between the founding of Israel and over the following decade or two. This has a potential to flood Israel with refugees from around the world. Looking around the world by continent, North America has approximately six million plus a fraction of Jews with Central and South America adding another half million Jews. Moving along Asia has about thirty-five thousand Jews with Oceana with one-hundred-twenty-one thousand plus Africa with seventy-four thousand and finally Europe (including Russia) which has the bulk outside North America with almost one and a half million. Outside of North America there are just over two million Jews. Assuming that only ten percent of North American Jews make Aliyah and the majority of Jews from the rest of the world also move to Israel, this would add another three to four million Jews to the population not even counting the number of Israelis expected from population growth, as unlike much of the rest of the developed world, Israel has a positive population growth while virtually if not every nation in Europe has a negative population growth which is part of the reason Europe has basically opened their borders to make up for the loss of population causing economic havoc. If the world goes completely mad and all Jews are deported with only Israel as a destination, this would make Israel one of the more densely populated nations, something which is going to occur with or without immigrants, immigration simply would cause this sooner rather than later. Israel currently has a population growth rate of just under two percent and has 3.11 births per woman compared to the average in Europe of around 1.65 births per woman where 2.13 births per woman is considered replacement rate meaning no change in the population. We will show one last map comparing the Arab World in green with Israel in red and you figure out where the displaced Arabs might find plenty of elbow room, Israel or amongst the Arabs world with pockets flushed with money provided by Israel as a relocation bonus to make their resettlement less painful.

If you figured the Arab world, then we are of the same mind. Remember that Israel would be providing the Palestinian Arabs and anybody else including Jews Muslims, Christians, Buddhists or any of the plethora of other religions who desired to leave Israel permanently with a relocation bonus and full market price for their properties. These would be welcome immigrants in any nation which desired inviting a freshly minted halfway to a millionaire family to assist with their economic fortunes. There would probably be a number of European nations who might consider extending an invite. Perhaps this is an idea worth some effort, especially if made now with a three-month time limit to decide before President Trump releases his Deal of the Century. This just might make President Trump and his deal unnecessary.

Israeli Battle for True Democracy

 

A war of a different kind is brewing to come to a head in Israel. It will be billed as the valiant confrontation to save democracy. This is actually a very accurate summation but who is attempting to save democracy and who is simply vying for power over the future of Israel is to be determined. Another angle to decide this battle is one of political views, the old socialists attempt at a last-ditch effort to retain their stranglehold over all decisions of the realm against the Zionist and nationalist struggle to break that stranglehold and return the rule of law to all the people with the elected representatives deciding the nation’s fates. The rumors over the unfolding coalition agreements has made some strong inferences that included within is a rough sketch for judicial reform and an end to the Supreme Court’s ability to override any decision be they made by the Knesset or even military commanders during a conflict. Part and parcel of this conflict is the method by which justices are chosen. Let us start there.

 

Currently a committee is selected to choose new justices for the Supreme Court as well as the lower courts. This committee had an unassailable makeup giving the sitting Supreme Court Justices along with the Attorney General and a member of the Lawyers Guild sufficient votes to block any nominee of which they have political differences. This had continued the leftward leanings of the Supreme Court solidly entrenched. The next Knesset is set to complete the transformation begun under Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked during the past government. The new selection process being proposed would place the Knesset, the elected Israeli legislature, the power for approving judges plus there will be a twelve year term for judges such that the court will never again be stranded in the politics of two or more decades ago and always being refreshed with new judges chosen by the elected representatives. This will allow the courts to more represent the ideals and aspirations of the people and not become an elite which has fallen out of touch with the people and the government. They also are going to attempt to draft laws which will permit the Knesset to overrule any overturning of a law passed by the Knesset by the Supreme Court, something which has prevented advancement of Israel and galled many Knesset Ministers who sat helplessly being unable to get laws which the people demanded past Supreme Court vetoes. Things had reached a point a few years ago where the Supreme Court flexed their assumed control which was never enacted through legislation but was simply a usurpation of power by Chief Justice Aharon Barak, who postulated that all things are adjudicable. Through this expansion of judicial power, the Supreme Court intervened in any area they believed that their desires were not being met. This led to Israel living under a black robed form of tyranny which the justices, with the blessings of the Europeans who sided with these left-leaning justices, claiming that to limit their power or alter their monopoly on choosing their replacements was an attack on democracy. Accordingly, Israel was often beaten into submission when the United States joined the Europeans in their pressuring of Israel to simply sit back and allow their betters to dictate their laws and lives. Now that battle is about to be waged for real.

Already we are hearing the screams that Israeli democracy is planning on being assailed and destroyed if the court’s powers are curtailed in any way and the method for choosing Justices has any modification from their beloved system. Where we are confused is how anybody can confuse allowing unelected Supreme Court Justices to override the elected government, counter orders given by military officers and generally dictate to every entity of the government what their marching orders are and stand over even the Prime Minister making the entire elected governance impotent under the overview of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is already smarting from the change made whereby they can no longer decide who gets to reside on lands which are contested without requiring a proof of the claims against the placement of Jewish homes; the court never found claims against Arabs to be founded, only Jews. This was removed from their dockets and placed in the lower courts ending the practice where a largely European funded NGO would come before the Supreme Court claiming their Arab client, who preferred not to appear out of fear of reprisals, once owned an area in which Jewish communities were built, and they often did not produce any deed of ownership and yet the court nearly always evicted the Jews destroying communities. Now with these cases in the lower courts a new procedure is in place whereby such claims will require the Arab making the claim to appear unless the court can be convinced such is impractical with reason, and the producing of a deed or bill of sale which will stand up to review before such decisions are reached. Further alterations allow the courts to order reparations rather than eviction, something the Supreme Court refused to consider as they appeared to have been operating under the concept that the Jews required being removed such that the Two State Solution could be enacted using the pre-Six Day War borders. The Supreme Court appeared loath to move beyond this idea and spent far too much energy in their crusade to make this happen. Now their screams of the death of democracy echo hollow as the people largely see this as the rescue of democracy from judicial tyranny.

 

The coalition will be formed within the ensuing few weeks and a new Knesset will be seated with very much the same breakdown as the last Knesset, sixty-five nationalist-Zionist-religious-economic capitalist or, as the media calls them, right-wing Ministers and fifty-five socialist-Arabist-two state solution supporting liberal or, as the media calls them, centrist or left-wing Ministers. Isn’t it simply amazing that almost anywhere one goes on this globe, those who are even slightly right of true center are called extreme-right-wing-fanatics, and we do not even want to know what they call true right-wing-fanatics, hint, their name is Nazis or fascists, and left of center is often referred to as centrist and far left are left-leaning. There really is only a true leftist in the more conservative news, the minority of the media, while the rest of the media are often far left and see old-style liberals as right-wing fanatics as they are not even left enough to be called centrist. As some have said, often with remorse, I did not leave the left-wing as a liberal, the left-wing left me and went places I do not care to visit. We will hear the caterwauling from the leftist media in Europe and the plethora of leftist politicians all echoing the same mantra that Israel is having the basis of democracy attacked by fascists in the government. We are confused as to how the elected government which can be changed by the people in any election are fascist while unelected Supreme Court Justices ruling by judicial fiat is democracy. If these definitions are correct, then perhaps I do support fascism as at least it comes with elections, but we all know deep down that those definitions are backwards. Even the Supreme Court Justices realize they are selling a bag of rotten to the core goods and stand against democracy. Anyway, who ever said Israel was a democracy? Israel is a Parliamentary Democracy under the rule of law as stated in the Basic Laws.

 

Now, if people would like a few suggestions for making some needed changes, well, who are we to disappoint. First thing is should they decide that the Knesset can overrule the Supreme Court veto, it should be by some form of super-majority, be that sixty-percent which is seventy-two Ministers, or two-thirds which is eighty Ministers or lastly three-fourths which is ninety Ministers. We would also prefer to see that any legislation require a super-majority for establishing a new Basic Law in place of a simply majority and an even higher bar for the repeal of any Basic Law. Another alteration would require that a quorum be required for any legislation to be voted upon thus making sneaking legislation through would become impossible, a tactic seldom utilized but even once would be too many times. And while we are at making modernizations, how about we make the letters of the law regarding electioneering, elections, term lengths, appointment of judges and Supreme Court Justices by defined methods, qualifications for offices, defining the threshold permanently instead of allowing it to be modified by the whims of each government, removal from office for impeachable and other crimes, and the other definitions required to set straight a framework around which the governing bodies are wrapped including a prescribed method for amending said constitution which would then be presented to the people for ratification. Lets make the Constitution an actual representation of a democracy by allowing the people to have the final say such that they can send the drafts back to the government with a note stating, try again, here are a few suggestions, and eventually the process will produce something we can all get used to and learn to live under. The world is screaming for democracy, how about we give them a real example and a real taste of what a modern democracy can produce and how well we know how to be a democratic country. Perhaps some of those crusted old-school Europeans will be able to learn something from the upstart nation which is over four-thousand years old and has seen all the forms of governance the world has ever produced and found that they all often lacked the protection for the weakest amongst us, and often those weaker ones were us Jews. The world oppressed the Jews for thousands of years and now they demand to tell us how to run our own nation which we finally are returning home after those two thousand years of torment and really have had more than enough of the world telling us what it is we can and cannot do and what we are permitted and how we must listen to them for what is right. We had a code for governance while these upstarts were still living in tribal villages and they want to tell us how to rule Israel. Well, we could simply use the Torah but that would really upset the world, so maybe that would not be such a bad idea, if only to hear the howls.
