Return of Ancient Hatreds Haunt Israeli Memories

 

The rejection of Israeli rights to the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea has a historical ancestor, rejection of the Old Testament. The Jewish People first served Hashem and abolished idolatry, child or human sacrifice, limited slavery, limit the power of rulers and kings along with numerous other rules which protect the vulnerable and demands the highest standards of an all-encompassing set of moral codes which expected only the best of people and for every man to look to the care of his brother human beings. They had a set of laws, six-hundred-thirteen commandments including the rules for the priest class and their numerous and individual responsibilities to keep the Temple and Arc of the Covenant and all the practices and necessary accoutrements in order. Then they had something which was unheard of in those times three-thousand-five-hundred-years ago give or take a few centuries and was not repeated by any other nation until the twentieth century. The commandments which the Jews were following were meant just for them and were not to be imposed on others. For others the only laws they were expected to follow were the Noahic Code, seven laws displayed in the image below. These rules were considered the minimum requirement for civilized life which was required for the formation of cities and have order or at least less chaos. The problem is the Jews were also instructed to lead moral lives such that by their example others would strive to be better human beings.

The Jews had a period of conquest where they, after they left Egypt, received the Ten Commandments and were taught Torah in its entirety according to custom with the very last chapters recorded as their actions completed the early story of the Jewish People. The rest of the Bible continues the story of the Jewish People to a point through the eras of Kings, Prophets and Judges starting with Joshua and the conquest of the Promised Lands, the lands promised to Abraham by Hashem and again to Isaac and Jacob. This leads us to the modern time where Israel would live in the confined spaces between Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Though under King David the twelve tribes and related priests were reunited as one force which did extend through what today is known as Syria reaching the Euphrates River, that was the greatest extension attained though it has been conjectured and certain evidence proven that King Solomon was known for his wisdom and his judgements were respected and even sought by other leaders in his day. Kings David and Solomon marked a high point in Jewish history in the Promised Land and under King David Jerusalem became the beating heart of Jewish existence and served as the Capital City from that day forward. A pair of maps depicting the original lands as distributed to the twelve tribes on left with the right depicting the full extension under Kings David and Solomon and the lands of modern Israel as defined on the morning if May 15, 1948 as was promised the Zionists and the most defendable of borders even today.

The claims that Israel is attempting to threaten the Arab held lands and that Israel would expand to become what has been referred to as a Greater Israel reaching from the Euphrates River in Iraq to the Nile River in Egypt uses a mention in the Bible and commentary of Torah where an argument was put forth as a point of discussion, nothing more. Israel would be perfectly content with the borders above in red on the right side which depicts what has been recognized by numerous military strategists as the borders Israel was expected to retain after the 1967 and 1973 wars instigated by the Arab nations forcing Israel to defend herself or perish and since those wars Israel surrendered the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula back to Egypt which in and of itself more than met the stipulations of every United Nations requirement set forth by the Security Council. There were military experts who believed that Israel should have retained half of the Sinai Peninsula using its central mountains as a defendable border but Israel returned all of the Egyptian lands which Egypt stated they would prefer for Israel to return and which required Israel to destroy communities which were built during the years after those wars proving that any communities which require being destroyed and their populations moved back within the restricted borders of Israel. When Gaza was gifted unilaterally by Israel to the Palestinian Authority (PA), it required the destruction of some large and operative communities in order to meet the demands that there be no Jews in the lands the PA ruled completely. The PA lost the Gaza in a coup by Hamas with support of the Islamic Jihad. Ever since Hamas took command over Gaza there have been rockets fired into Israel aimed at civilian locations and almost solely at civilian targets. Israel placed a legal blockade, recognized as such by the United Nations, which became a necessity when it was discovered that Hamas and Islamic Jihad were importing weapons and rockets by sea to use against Israeli civilian targets. Israel required for any deliveries into Gaza first is inspected by Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which they are, and be passed on to Gaza as long as the materials are not military usage by Hamas or other terror agencies. Proof of the necessity of the blockade by the Egyptian blockade on their border with Gaza within weeks as it was being utilized as a weapons transfer and terrorist insertion into the Sinai Peninsula from within Gaza. Egypt has gone to greater lengths than Israel had, expanding the buffer zone, as the Egyptians expanded the buffer zone by over the half a kilometer destroying all of the homes within that area and all without the media firestorm when Israel destroyed some dozens of homes which were also being used to shield tunnel entrances while the media depicted this strategic necessity as an outright collective form of punishment and not a military necessity. That was the norm with Israeli actions in the world where Israel is scrutinized over every act or discussion while almost every other nation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is mostly ignored despite their having far worse records than does Israel. Why is this disparate scrutiny permitted where Israel is inspected for every mention while the rest of the world is largely left to do as they please?

 

Part of the problem is purely misunderstandings when it comes to Israel. Many people honestly believe Israel is significantly larger than she is. There have been questions asked of people as to the size of Israel and many answered that Israel compared as near equal to the United States and almost all believed that Israel was larger than numerous large states such as Texas and California and not closer to New Jersey. When people were told that Israel measures very close to the size of New Jersey they reacted with shock, surprise and incredulity as to the veracity of the statement which can be understood in the comparative maps below. Israel is amongst the smallest of nations yet is treated as comparable in size to European nations or even far larger. Israel would be nine miles wide if she was forced to return to the pre-June 1967 Armistice Lines which would allow adversaries, of which there are many, to slice Israel in half while destroying much of Israeli industry and population in the process.

There are reasons why Israel is hated and judged on a scale unseen by almost every nation with the possible exception of the United States. The difference in size forces Israel to be threatened should they be forced to allow a terrorist entity to be perched on the highlands overlooking much of the nation as the Arab world and their friends demand. Israel is taken to task simply because the return of the Jewish People to their ancient homelands further makes the prophesies of the Bible, and the Torah in particular, verified and validated which makes Torah and the Bible relevant today and applicable as written. Those groups, religious institutions and other entities which have based their existence and validity on the replacement theological premise which claimed that the Jewish People were cursed to wander as stateless peoples residing at the good graces of their betters, was shattered when the Jews reestablished Israel with Yerushalayim as its Capital City. Manner of defining the Jewish People as having become bereft of Hashem and no longer being the Chosen People having been replaced initially by the Christian Church and then at a later date by Islam with both claiming to be the Chosen People and as the ones graced by a new covenant replacing the Jewish covenant. Their proof was the Jews having no state or place that was theirs where they were defended by said state and that the Jews were forsaken. The Jews had been cast out of Eretz Yisroel as the Jews had become the accursed of Hashem. This had led to the Jews becoming the cursed of Hashem and thus the domain of Satan, the operatives or spawn of the Devil. This being expounded as a central doctrine was some of the root for modern anti-Semitism.

 

The last reason for hatred of Israel as simple projection of anti-Semitism goes even further back where the Jewish People were the first to claim the frailties of man and their need to recognize that without Hashem man was vulnerable to uncivilized behavior and devolving down to a point of being a beast and no greater than was a monkey or worse. The Noahic Code and Judaism itself attempting to lead by example was the one-two punch which Jews presented to a world where lusts, rapes, lawlessness and deviancy were the norm and the Jews were offering mankind a higher and more noble path to tread and in many, if not most, cases mankind simply was not prepared, not ready for a higher and more noble path and resented having their lives as wrong. They had the right of might to act as their idolatrous gods demanded of them including human, child and even infant sacrifice. Ridding these cultures of their idols was also a threat to those who made the idols so many craved for their own home as that would protect their family and houses. The morality supposedly practiced by Jews, and at least what Torah commanded of them, was a code which mankind preferred not to be required to live up to. Having your entire life be the determining factor of whether your soul would travel straight into heaven with barely a ‘how do you do’ while others would spend as much as a year being cleansed of the impure acts which had somehow stained and even injured the soul.

 

When Israel had been a nation setting the example for a righteous life they were reviled. Living on and controlling the common routes for almost all trade going between Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Africa meant the lands the Jews resided on were in great demand, especially to empires such as Babylonians, Persians, Greeks and Romans meant that the Jewish homelands remained conquered by other empires far too often. What one item that remained necessary to keep the fulcrum running was food, preferably grown and provided locally. This presented all the empires with the same problem, the land would not produce for them; it only produced for the Jews. This resulted in the Jews retaining their homelands as they had to be the ones who worked the land, even if they were to do so under the protection, occupation of the foreign power often allowing some degree of self-rule in exchange for the Jews providing the critical needful items the ground and grasslands produced. This dependence upon a conquered people did not do anything to enhance the image of the Jews, especially since they insisted their religion was the holy order of the one true deity, which Hashem actually is. This plus the nearly constant attempts by the Jews to regain their independence made their province one of the least productive. The constant turmoil by the Jews finally pushed beyond the breaking point and Rome snapped. The Romans destroyed the second Temple, which was built and in service when Buddha and Confucius were born and later spread their versions of how the world should operate, something the Jews had been doing for almost a millennia and doing it so well that pieces of Torah can be found in the philosophies of these two venerated philosophers and subsequently, when that did not prevent the Jews from seeking their independence, scattered the Jews to the far corners of the Roman Empire, as if to say they were scattered on the winds.

 

There are two items which saved the Jewish People from extinction as had befallen the empire and people of Carthage after Rome finally vanquished their power burning their capital to the ground and breaking every last brick and salting the surrounding lands such that they would never produce grains again. While the Jews were scattered they had two things which preserved them as a people. The first was the blessed Sabbath and the second was Torah, even if it remained solely as word of mouth as it was after Moses’s times when he instructed the Jewish People the entirety of Torah which was initially stored through word of mouth. The Polemic Greeks decided to prove that Torah was made by mankind and had no deistic source thus proving that Hashem did not exist as if Torah was from such a perfect and higher entity it could not be altered by mankind. The Polemic Greeks placed seventy-two Rabbinical scholars in separate rooms and instructed them to write the entirety of Torah translated into ancient Greek. Their intent was to find any single copy which differed from the rest. This experiment was instigated to prove that Torah did not have a divine source and was a mere product with no special qualities just as every other manmade religious and cultural elements, including their own idolatrous religious hierarchy. This produces seventy-two perfectly identical Greek translation of the Hebrew (Jewish) Torah which are, to this day, considered the best translation of the Old Testament and is the gold standard and is called the Septuagint, which means seventy which means that two of the Rabbi were short-shrifted, and to this day is still used and can only be supplanted by the Dead Sea Scrolls which may or may not be older and are direct transcripts of Torah and other teaching. These were the historic roots which made anti-Semitism all but engrained into human DNA. But what are the roots of the latest seeming explosion of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel hatreds which have honestly bubbled to the surface across Europe and spreading across the college and university campuses in the United States and Canada bringing anti-Americanism and anti-western culture and governance demonstrations which makes sense as much of Western culture is rooted in Judeo-Christian ethics despite the current war against such a high standard of ethics.

The Modern anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are all one and the same. They all center on the hatred of the Jews and their success which is due to their ethic which is what makes their initial success and then the success is a direct result of their initial success. Just as Jewish success in business and the sciences and almost every area of human endeavor even to include limited but important success in the sport of boxing. Daniel Mendoza who wrote the book on modern boxing as he in 1954 Mendoza was elected to the Boxing Hall of Fame as he was reputed to have invented the scientific art of boxing taking the sport from merely men brawling to tactics and punching in combinations and setting up punches with feints. Mendoza also changed the picture of the Jew as a shrewish little weakling incapable of even the smallest amount of self-defense as Mendoza beat his way to the top of the boxing game.

Mendoza was the boxer who not only invented and showed the advantage of having a plan and practice certain steps and such things as combinations and defensive footwork instead of standing toe-to-toe and throwing haymakers. When Israel defends herself and her civilians from Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets, the standing toe-to-toe and thrown haymakers, Israel deftly uses the planned and researched placements of the limited number of Iron Dome anti-missile batteries which had an unbelievable success as the equivalent of defensive footwork. The IDF uses their many differing weapons to defeat Hamas and Islamic Jihad and any other Jihadists in such a manner to minimize the most unfortunate result defending against the terrorists, saving the defenseless civilians. The IDF are doing whatever they can to decrease collateral damage as Israel sends warnings using pamphlets, phone calls, knocking a target with a small explosive to warn a larger and far more destructive bomb will soon follow and other such methods that the civilians are given warning to leave the building. There are those who have their doubts that Israel gives such warnings as that allows the terrorists to depart the target and move to safety. That is just the price Israel pays in this difficult fighting but settles for striking just the munitions left behind as Israel holds innocent life above all else. The IDF and the government of Israel hold themselves to standards so much higher than other militaries in the western world and virtually immeasurably above other governments, especially that of their adversaries as the war in Syria and the events in Libya as well as the terror attacks in Paris in the past eighteen months from Charlie Hebdo through the Kosher Market Hyper Cachet to the recent military style assault on Paris, Mumbai in India, the train bombings in London and Madrid, the Boston Marathon bombings and far too many attacks targeting only civilians especially the knifing Intifada which is approaching its second year in Israel largely in Jerusalem. There have been military specialists who have stated that the IDF standards are so high that if such standards become the expected norm it would make other Western nations efforts far more difficult as Israel causes civilian casualties from collateral damage to a level so low that no other military in any conflict has even been capable of keeping such deaths as comparably low. Such is the message from military experts and a former officer witnessing before a United Nations panel about the most recent Gaza war initiated by hundreds, possibly thousands, of rockets fired into civilian towns, kibbutzim and metropolis city limits from ventral Tel Aviv to the furthest suburban neighborhoods of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Ashkelon, Netanya, Beer Sheba and others which without the shelters and Iron Dome would have murdered tens of thousands of Israelis. Don’t trust us, watch these videos below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hatred of Israel stems from the success in high tech fields such as cellphone Apps, computer protection software, cellphones, instant messaging and other blessings to computer users both industrial and personnal use. In agriculture Israel is a leader with drip irrigation, engineering crops to survive irrigation with a percentage of sea water and other high salinity, crops requiring less water than the same crop in other nations and numerous other agricultural breakthroughs. In medicine the advances and techniques which have benefited people worldwide especially with the Save a Child’s Heart (SACH). The advances in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and other hard and soft sciences are unimaginable and may explain why people think that Israel must be the size of the United States as they almost compete in advancements, Nobel Prizes in the Sciences, and Apps for cellphones as we mentioned but the honest truth is Israel is the size of New Jersey and close to one third is desert and largely sparsely populated.

 

The miracles make for spiteful hatred at Israeli successes and undeterred stand against the terror forces and the worldwide demonstrations and accusations as Israel will continue to be a Light to the Nations (Hebrew: אור לגויים) as was made evident after the Nepal earthquake, the Haiti earthquake, the disaster in the Philippines, the earthquake and tsunami hitting Japan and was the sole nation to immediately offer to send assistance to the United States after both Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina and has offered assistance after earthquakes in Iran and Iraq and offered and delivered aid to the people of Turkey after their earthquake. Israeli disaster assistance is the equal of any other nation with the only exception possibly the United States where they are of comparable assistance though they outdid all in Nepal and had the first fully equipped and maned field hospital in Haiti much to the surprise of CNN and other news sources. This is the real Israel and is the Israel which never seems to matter to those who claim Israel is the worst nation with imperial designs on the Middle East and the world beyond. We can assure the world that Israel only desires to keep the areas in red in the first map in this article, that little strip about the size of New Jersey.

There is one leader in the world who has taken a unique view of the so-called Framework Agreement, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of Iran. He has decided to be neither for the Framework nor against the Framework for as he sees it, there really is no Framework to support or oppose. He has posted to his official website, “It’s all about the details. The disloyal side may want to stab Iran in the back over the details; it is too early to congratulate. What’s been done so far secures neither the main deal nor its contents nor is it even clear whether talks will bear fruit and lead to a deal.” The Ayatollah Khamenei might be the only commentator to actually call the Framework Agreement what it really is, all things to all people. As has been commented on this site and elsewhere, there appear to be as many versions of the Framework as there are commentators making their own assessments and predictions. The immediate reality which struck within hours of the announcement of there being a Framework Agreement there were commentaries from all fronts on the terms of the Framework Agreement. The White House gave their interpretation which included “fact sheet” which included the most rosy and wonderful set of conditions giving the indications that the P5+1 had procured every single item from even the most optimistic sources’ predictions of what would constitute the perfect agreement. Then there was the news of the Iranian conclusions about the Framework Agreement which granted Iran every last desire they could possibly have expected. Then there was what might be the actual best representation of the actual Framework Agreement given by the French and the European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini, both who held the supposed actual copies of the direct, interpretation free, translation of the actual Framework Agreement from which the United States and Iran each had made their own determination and translations. The unique, and in our opinion, near perfect interpretation and potentially most direct and honest translation of the actual Framework Agreement is the French version which is not required to fulfill any expectations nor infer any political intents satisfying public opinions and provide, false as they might be, feelings of safety and satisfaction of our hopes and dreams.

 

So, if we are expecting the framework agreement, as the citizens in the United States have been told by their media, was satisfied by the Framework Agreement, you will likely not be uplifted by the rest of this article. If you are seeking promises that your nations has hoodwinked the Western Imperialist fools and have used the wiles and tactics developed over the thousands of years or Persian history and conquest to deliver the perfect and most promising possible affirmation of your leaders promises, you too will likely be upset by the remainder of this article. Even those who have been left scratching their heads after reading the French version of the Framework Agreement and desire somebody to make sense out of the jumbled up mashing of contradictory terms and nonsensical jumble of words, we will not be much help here either. We will try to explain what has occurred, maybe even explain some of the why, and finally give a guess at what to expect between now and the June 30, next deadline. As far as the actual meaning of the Framework Agreement, we believe the French is by far the most accurate translation which is anything but satisfying.

 

The Ayatollah Khamenei probably nailed the true reality about the Framework Agreement, it was actually meaningless and was an acquiescing by the Iranian to allow President Obama and his supporting actors to perform their kabuki dance for their supporting media and spin doctors giving them the ability to appear victorious and gaining the upper hand and have bested the Iranians by issuing their fact sheet while the Iranians were happy to issue their own version of a fact sheet which supported a completely opposite set of realities drawn from the Framework Agreement. The French version tells us everything we need to understand about the Framework Agreement. It is simply the invention which permits a continued set of negotiations despite their original statements that the postponement to March 31 was to be the final delay for reaching an agreement. This addressed the promise to finally reach an accord by claiming that they had made progress and set down a set of agreements which would act as the skeleton of the eventual agreement which is now scheduled to be produced in another quarter of a year, three months. This was their way of allowing another stretching of the deadline kicking the can down the road. If one looks at the promises President Obama and his supporting staff and media have set as their interpretation, if not the actual terminology, of the Framework Agreement it does not prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear armed nation, it merely puts that date off by ten years, the exact ten years which Islamic traditions allow for the application of a Hudna which states that the longest period any truce or treaty is permitted is a decade and which can be transgressed by the Islamic party to the Hudna if they feel they have the tactical advantage and strength which they had lacked when seeking the Hudna. Actually, the ten years limit to the majority of the terms of the agreement in the Framework Agreement may be the only accuracy which we can rely upon and yet it is also the most troubling of the claims made by the White House. We are not going anywhere near claiming that the ten year timing in the Framework Agreement and the fact that the Islamic limitation on treaties of such natures being limited by the Hudna to ten years makes President Obama a Muslim, but we would agree that he has a deeper knowledge of Islamic laws and practices and may be more sensitive to such nuances which has driven him to implement the ten year limitation for much of the Framework Agreement out of respect.

 

So, we have a Framework Agreement and have three separate and conflicting versions of said document with one being so vague and contradictory as to make it worthless, where does all this lead? It leads exactly where we have been before as this is far from the first extension of the nuclear weapons talks. This is notable because this extension is merely a quarter of a year compared to the previous delays which were often a year or longer. There was a statement by CIA Director John Brennan this past week when speaking to Fox News Sunday stating on Fox News Sunday, “I think they realize there’s going to be tremendous costs and consequences and implications if they were to decide to go for a breakout.” And if the deal fails, “If they decide to go down that route, they know they will do so at their peril.” There have been recent rumors that the Iranians have constructed a secret nuclear enrichment facility which was built in an area beneath one of the government buildings in order to conceal the construction from the world and the entrance. This location has been stocked with cascades of their newest model IR-8 centrifuges which spin somewhere around twenty times faster than their original centrifuges. This may be behind the latest estimate which claims that Iran currently has a breakout time of a mere couple of months, three at the longest, to building a nuclear warhead as they already have all the technical talent and abilities to produce such a weapon. This claim takes into consideration the advances the Iranians have made in their rocketry and other weapons including drones and cruise missiles and came to the conclusion that the sole impediment is the length of time it takes to enrich sufficient highly enriched uranium over ninety percent and fashion the core for the device which we have been currently told is approaching a full year but some have claimed the Iranians would only need a few months, somewhere between two and three months. What makes all this of interest is that it is possible that the Iranians desired this three month extension so they can produce at least one nuclear device and to announce that the negotiations are ended as Iran has joined the nuclear weapons club of nations. This would present the world with the worst possible result from talking the problem to death and by extending the time repeatedly the Western powers have failed hopelessly at attaining their expected goal of preventing Iran from producing nuclear weapons. This has been our greatest fear here after the second time the talks were extended for yet another year or more as each of the extensions contained smaller additional extensions before simply setting a completely new date usually a year down the road. This frightening eventuality may be exactly what we will witness at the end of this latest push back of the deadline for an agreement. This is the problematic result of the hubris and superciliousness of the approach by President Obama and his haughty treatment of the Iran negotiations standing aloof and apart from the actual negotiations and simply seeing only that which he desired while ignoring everything else. Now President Obama may be about to be standing facing explaining how it was that Iran developed nuclear weapons not only on his watch but during President Obama’s declarations guaranteeing preventing their attaining such weapons.

 

There is one thing which can be guaranteed should an Iranian nuclear weapon be tested or used against either the Greater or Lesser Satan during his watch, he will simply blame it on George W. Bush, Benyamin Netanyahu and the Republicans who signed and sent the note to be published as an editorial aimed at the Iranians because, as we all have come to realize as this has been explained to us ad nauseum, it is absolutely impossible that President Obama and those he has assigned to carry out his directives to have failed unless a third party crossed some line and thus caused the misfortune. There will be much of the blame heaped on Israel, her Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, the close cabinet around Prime Minister Netanyahu and with additional blame heaped upon Defense Minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon for making threats which caused the Iranians great amounts of fear pushing them to hurriedly produce a nuclear weapon for their protection from this Israeli threat. What will be the result of this ever dithered, repeatedly suspended, and interminably put-off target date for a final agreement which simply had to eventually produce a nuclear weapons armed Iran just as the negotiations with North Korea resulted in a nuclear armed North Korea after former President Jimmy Carter promised the deal made along with the scheduled IAEA inspections would lock down their efforts preventing their reaching a nuclear bomb. We used many of the same people in negotiating these ever protracted and delayed negotiations which oft appeared more like an attempt to provide the Iranians sufficient time to forge ahead and produce nuclear weapons while they were not obligated by any treaty as the negotiations were still in progress. When, and if Iran decides to go to breakout and charge forward to establish themselves as the next nation to join the nuclear club there might be nothing to prevent their breakout just as nothing short of taking the military option off the table and implementing the less than perfect solution but perhaps the only option which will attain the desired results. We can bet that if President William Jefferson Clinton refused to use United States military troops and firepower to prevent North Korea from attaining nuclear weapons then there is absolutely no possibility that President Obama would use military force to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear armed nation, and they are aware of this weakness and lack of fortitude, quite aware. And as we all understand, any arms displayed as part of national armaments will forever going forward have them as an option. Perhaps the only nation to choose to forgo nuclear arms after once having nuclear weapons has been South Africa who dismantled their nuclear armaments and destroyed everything which was part of the research and development such that if they were ever to decide to build another nuclear weapon they would need to start from square one. Still, it appears that Iran will become a nuclear armed nation in the near future if they desire such and there is nothing which will stand in their way. This is the sad reality of affairs and it appears that we will need to address what to do about a nuclear armed Iran and the ramification of an arms race spreading rapidly through the Middle East and also across North Africa spreading nuclear weapons capability in such a relatively unsteady area of the globe. G0d help us.
