World Demands to Make Peace on Israel’s Grave

 

Russia has been pressing since this past summer to host a meeting between Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu but the specifics have proven difficult at best. President Obama and his Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have demanded their right to force a peace on Israel with borders which all but guarantee the next Arab Israeli war using the Hamas tactic of rockets fired over the border and then claiming Israel started the war when they finally attack to end the destruction. The United Nations and its various Agencies and Commissions as well as its NGO’s (Non-governmental Organizations) which many are financed almost completely by some varied combination of the European Union, the United Nations, European governments, the United States, George Soros and other actors, and leading from among the European countries who wish to force Israel to surrender to any and all Arab demands now have their champion in the French who are planning on holding their second conference to solve “the peace process” which has stalled. The reason for the quotation marks around the peace process is due to the fact that the world has decided when one says peace process they are referring to the only peace process which must be forced forward even if the sole means of doing so is to all but destroy Israel and redivided Jerusalem such that all the ancient Jewish holy sites and half the synagogues are placed east of the divide and beyond the reach of Israelis and Western Jews and Christians and allows for these places to be once again destroyed by their Muslim overlords. Even South Africa, amongst other nations with few if any problems of their own have also chimed in demanding that Israel make concessions for peace.

Further, recently we had the great Security Council debacle where United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 was brought forth for considerations by Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela; all paragons of virtue and oh so holy that they are to be knighted for their bravery and stalwart stand for international justice, bringing this Israel damning, precedent setting, United Nations Charter Article 80 negating, UNSC Res 242 negating alternative to all former agreements and condemnation of Israel as the most grievous offender of all the world holds precious under laws and opinion to be made vulnerable to potential sanction but by individual nations at their own volition but not directly because of this resolution. UNSC Resolution 2334 is a Chapter 6 resolution which is nonbinding and unenforceable. This was a great amount of noise and bluster bursting upon the universal stage with great winds and fury signifying absolutely nothing more than President Obama’s vengeance wrought on Benyamin Netanyahu and a great scream from out the White House reaching all the way to the heart of Jerusalem reaching Netanyahu’s ears claiming, “You were the Jew boy who stole the thunder behind my Nobel Peace Prize by refusing my demands you simply give up your little worthless nation to the Palestinians as I demanded.” This anguished spite reached Jerusalem, barely, as Barack Hussein Obama was merely aiming for Tel Aviv as he personally does not accept that Jerusalem could ever have been the capital city of Israel as the church Jeremiah Wright pastored, whose bible likely did not include Jerusalem as the capital city of King David and King Solomon of Biblical Israel and likely gave the Jews the holy back of the Reverend Wright recognized deity’s hand as a rebuke for its Jewishness.

 

The next threat is so obvious in from whence it will originate and from there where it aims to proceed and whose hand is stirring this pot with the greatest vigor. The threat will emerge, if the stirrer’s dreams are met, from the Paris conference of European Foreign Ministers and groups of Arab representatives will meet with the intended result being the recommendations for what would be the proper border for a recognized Palestine as a new Arab state carved from the body of the Jewish State as recognized by Article 80 of the UN Charter. An agreement was reached last month during a low key, under the radar meeting, where France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, French President François Hollande, United States Secretary of State John Kerry met, taking their marching orders for defining this new nation from its future dictator Mahmoud Abbas, in advance of the conference, just to assure that all his demands and other issues which includes the world must continue financing the PA and its graft engine for as long as a single Jew remains between the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea and Jordan before the will PA to even consider any agreement. This coming conference was originally set for late December but was rescheduled finalizing a date of January 15, 2017. This date is so interesting as the UNSC has decided to schedule a meeting for January 18, 2017, presumably the issues include the situation in Mali, where non-State actors were making the implementation of the peace agreement difficult; implementation of the Iran nuclear deal; Somalia and other situations of concern in Africa, also things discussed with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and other regional partners; and perhaps some special time working on enacting any conclusion made in Paris in the preceding few days, who knows what might make the deadline that day. It cannot be simple coincidence that all these meetings are planned immediately before Inauguration Day as none of these leftist leaders would wish to assist Barack Hussein Obama burn down even more of the world on his way out the door.

 

United State Aircraft Carrier

United State Aircraft Carrier

 

Now for the final item which pertains to President Obama and his recent housekeeping before having the keys to the kingdom handed on to Donald Trump, a.k.a. the evil one. The United States Navy ranking officers have made excuses and tried to claim that there is nothing strange that the United States, for the first time since possibly 2000 or maybe since world War II, has absolutely no aircraft carriers deployed anywhere in the oceans and seas of the world, they are all at their home ports. The United States depends on these floating airfields and divisions or wings of air power to enforce policy and to put down those nasty little fires which crop up from time to time. What is wonderful is that just the arrival of an air craft carrier group into a troubled area and the trouble usually simmers to a halt without the order of a single sortie against any targets. Sometimes all that is required is an overflight of American air power to close the lid on some roiling pot of trouble. What having all the aircraft carriers in their home ports precludes many options and with the troubles in the Middle East and North Africa plus the troubles in the South China Sea and the fact that both Russia and China have aircraft carriers deployed, the lack of such by the United States has muted much of American power in the world. The fact that this may have been the situation when George W. Bush came to power after William Jefferson Clinton makes this all the more damning as it makes things appear as Democrat Presidents attempt to hamper and handicap incoming Presidents should they be of the wrong party, be Republicans. I hope such is not the case but appearances can be damning. Fortunately, the article above tells that there will be two aircraft carriers scheduled to sail in the near future, let the world hope they will also signal the return of the America which stands firm in the world for justice and freedom; such will be welcome here at BTC. Of course the fact that much of Donald Trump’s rhetoric was that of an isolationist which might mean that we may not see any return of the United States on the world’s stage and the world will need to continue soldiering on as best as we can without their assistance. If so, so be it, we will do and we will hear from the only source that counts, and that source does not sit in any Earthly capital city.

The Meeting of Futility in Paris

 

One might expect a meeting of about two-hundred nations in Paris, not that long following the horrific terror attacks in Paris, to at least give a moment of silence or other recognition of the deaths of innocents; but their subject was far too serious to waste time on terrorism. There is a planet almost in flames to save! They had to discuss how the developed world could cut their human induced emissions and save the world from disaster while assisting the developing world in the only way that the developed world is capable. They will not be helping them with technology for clean energy production, nor with scrubbing technology to use with any fossil fuel burning in their smokestacks cleaning exhaust smoke lowering their emissions, nor manufacturing systems which are more efficient in their use of electricity or other power; they instead are to produce funding to provide each developing nation with one-hundred-million-dollars per nation and in return the developing nations promise to spend that infusion of cash. One might expect that there would be some demand that this infusion of funds would be used for the development of clean energy, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the betterment of the lives of their people, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the increase of yields through irrigation or other agricultural technology, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the more efficient use of natural resources, but you would be mistaken. One might expect that the funds would be used for the relief of the abject poverty through modernization of manufacturing, but you would be mistaken. So what are the restrictions on this funding, only that the developed nations make sure they pony-up the funds as demanded and the recipients need not even account for the use of these funds.

What was the one most interesting event of the entire Paris United Nations Conference on Climate Change was United States Secretary of State Kerry actually saying something, probably without thinking it through, which was as profound as it was honest and thus unexpected from Secretary Kerry when he commented, “…The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what, that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.” Secretary Kerry continued being both brilliant, straight shooting and painfully honest as he added, “If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.” The United States may need to find a new Secretary of States as Secretary Kerry appears to have been stricken with an extended period of conscience making him insightful and incapable of making the necessary lies required by the position as proven by his comments until this past week of weakness and which Secretary of State Clinton made a requirement of the position as most of President Obama appointees have been required to perform at presenting lies with a straight face and an earnestness when telling lies that only a psychopath could match. Should Secretary Kerry utter another truth or even a truism, he may be seeking new employment by Sunday.

 

So, once again the results of a climate conference sponsored by the United Nations, also known as the pilfer from the wealthy top fifteen percenters and give to the eighty-five percent around the world, lived up to its name in spades. In numbers of actual nations there are approximately three to one developing nations against developed nations or one-hundred-fifty developing nations against fifty developed nations. This means that every developed nation will be held to pay somewhere around one-third (1/3) of a million dollars such that the remaining one-hundred and fifty developing nations will receive their one-hundred-million dollars each year with no requirements being placed on the levels of pollutants produced by these nations and no restrictions on how the funds are to be used which in too many of the developing nations these monies will simply be squandered by the elitist few closest to the dictator du jour. This is simply another Obama approved giveaway of United States treasury as it will prop up a few unsavory strong arming fascists, and other dictators and Presidents for life to which the United States would never desire or willingly send funding to without some ability for tracing the usage and placing restriction upon which future monies may be denied as there is no use throwing good money after bad as things are not likely to improve until the form of governance is far less corrupt. All that was accomplished at the Paris sponsored United Nations Conference on Climate Change was for the Obama groups and again managing for the one-hundred fifty nations to out vote the fifty developed nations demanding that they contribute to a large fund which will be paid out by the developed nations and paid out to the developing nations with no stated purpose as the developing nations balked at even the mention of placing any restriction of the monies they were to receive.

 

This is the reality of climate change, the advanced world will be forced to make payments to the developing nations and so that eventually these developing nations will bankrupt the developed world’s nations simply by taking that funding which could have provided so much and so many remedies for the people, benefits which would have boosted the economies of these nations getting them off the ground and potentially into space but instead most of these funds will be squandered needlessly and the people of these nations will continue to suffer. The reason their suffering will continue is as simple to see as to why once people were placed on Welfare and all the accompanying programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, and a host of other programs to care for their every need often better than many of those paying for their care received from their employers. When people towards the lower end of the tax scale heard from their neighbors the advantages to not producing and simply living off the government, they joined the ranks of the nonproductive. This, of course, eventually forced the producers to act as it was getting more difficult for them to support the unproductive. In this case there is one difference, once one is rated as a developed nation it is all but impossible to become an undeveloped nation and, as such, there is no going the opposite way, once a developed nation, always a developed nation. The undeveloped nations will actually become very protective of their status as it pays the leaders very well and as the unproductive nations also happen to hold majority status amongst the nations in the United Nations, they control these empowered organizations such as the climate control, industrial development funding and any other tag they can assign themselves which requires the developed world to give largess in funding to the undeveloped but developing world in order to assist them in becoming a developed nation. Of course no nation from the undeveloped world ever crosses the threshold and becomes a developed nation, and they see to it that not even Greece can become an undeveloped nation though they have given it a good go and are now being treated by the European Union as if they had succeeded. Once a nation goes on the dole from its more economically productive neighbors it will never manage to make its way to productive as it will no longer be paid for their lack of efforts. Success is guaranteed to never occur because then they would be tapped to pay their former friendly nations who turned on them as soon as they were capable of paying them which meant more for them and too bad for the unlucky nation which succeeded. Imagine this, welfare at the United Nations representing a perfect model for why larger and larger segments of the developed world’s populations end up on government support rolls each year and the number of workers supporting those payments shrinks and may soon fall below two workers per recipient which is probably when a revolt by the working will take place as for them it will become easier to be unproductive and soon you have the fifteen percent supporting the eighty-five percent just as it is with the nations at the United Nations. Once the unproductive can force the productive to support them and also make it impossible for a producer to become a nonproducer, then you have the slavery of the working class, or as the United Nations is calling it, support of the underprivileged world which just cannot seem, no matter how much funding they receive and they are constantly voting for more, more, more yet never showing any progress towards joining the developed world, imagine that if you will. The secret will be to watch the nations described as “in transition” to see how many, if any, make it into the classification of developed world and I am betting except for those in Europe, none of the rest will ever quite make that transition willingly.

Mr. Abbas Goes to Paris

Mahmoud Abbas is reportedly heading to Paris in order to meet with United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as new elected French President Francois Hollande as well as a possibility of meeting with European Union Foreign Affairs Chief Catherine Ashton, and the British, German and Norwegian foreign ministers. Along with a group of representatives of several Arab Countries, this virtual cornucopia of diplomatic officials will be in Paris for a “Friends of Syria” meeting in hopes of bridging differences between Arab and Western positions over the Syrian Civil War. Mahmoud Abbas will be in Paris seeking assistance in placing pressure on Israel to surrender to as many of his plethora of unilateral demands as preconditions before he will deign sit and pretend to negotiate before, as was the precedent set by Yasser Arafat, stalking briskly from the negotiations claiming loudly and vehemently he will not continue to be insulted. Of course, should he not achieve gaining the full accommodation of pressuring Israeli compliance with his every demand, then he will still demand for every single precondition his imaginations can fancy accumulating them as each second passes. Saeb Erekat has stated that Mr. Abbas will stress the importance of releasing Palestinian Authority murderer, terror master, bomb maker, and violent jihadist all of whom have the blood of innocent Israeli civilians upon their hands who serve sentences, even those serving numerous life sentences, jailed in Israeli prisons. Maybe a quick look at a short list of some of the preconditions which Mr. Abbas seeks to have the entire world assist him in shoving down Israel’s throat should be up next.

The likely best known one was the one first introduced early in President Obama’s Presidency when President Obama stated that Israel should freeze all building of any sort anywhere in Judea, Samaria or East Jerusalem in order to entice the return of Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians to the negotiations. This has never been previously mentioned or even dreamed of in anybody’s wildest imaginations and once stated there was no way in which Mahmoud Abbas or any other member of the Palestinian Authority could hold a position less favorable to the cause of the Palestinians than the President of the United States had shown to be. Under increasing pressures, Prime Minister Netanyahu relented and met the demand placed upon him by President Obama and announced a complete building freeze on Judea and Samaria (aka West Bank) but not East Jerusalem maintaining that Jerusalem will remain the undivided Capital City of Israel. The building freeze was not set to be open ended as was initially implied by President Obama in his speech but was set for ten months as a preliminary time frame to observe what developed. What developed was absolutely nothing anywhere near as was claimed would result should Israel simply comply with this one small stipulation. Instead, for almost nine full months all that was heard from both Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, and Saeb Erekat, lead negotiator for the Palestinian authority, were a series of additional preconditions and some extremely inventive definitions of the idea of preconditions. The additional preconditions were defined as anything except a demand, simply obligations the Palestinian Authority expected from Israel, steps Israel would need to take to convince the world of their sincerity, investments in the peace process, or steps that are obviously in the interest of the Israelis if they desire peace among other even more twisted definitions depending on which news source you used.

Some of the lesser preconditions can be grouped together for your ease of reading and so your patience is not tested are; pulling all IDF units out of the West Bank leaving the Jewish residents under Palestinian authority protection, permitting the Palestinian authority to import weapons and weapon systems in order to upgrade their capabilities, the repeated demand for prisoner releases of varying numbers or sometimes particular prisoners such as Mustafa and Marwan Barghouti who are both terror masters, and always the final deal-breaker of Right of Return for as many as five and a half million Palestinian refugees. Add to this the continuing claim by both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas that despite Israel removing every civilian and IDF troop from Gaza that it is still occupied territory. These are in addition to the Palestinian Authority government constant honoring terrorists and terror masters by naming streets, parks, children’s camps, soccer tournaments, public buildings, schools, and numerous other places with great fanfare and publicity. This is also despite the glorification of martyrdom in schools, on television, in film, and in public celebrations. Add to all of this the fact that the Palestinian Authority has yet to modify their Charter by removing its clause demanding the total and complete destruction of the Jewish State or lived up to the vast majority of other obligations and agreements. And the last item is the Palestinian efforts to achieve recognized statehood through whatever route which can be utilized unilaterally such as acceptance into the United Nations, incorporation into United Nations organizations such as UNESCO, thus avoiding negotiations with Israel as stipulated in the Oslo Accords. The Palestinian Authority, like the PLO before it, and Mahmoud Abbas, like Yasser Arafat before him, have attempted to utilize any deceit, prevarication, avoidance, or any available means to avoid negotiations as there has never been and never will be an honest desire by the Palestinian to make peace as that would require, at least temporarily, recognizing Israeli existence.

What the world needs to understand is that the conflict currently going under the name of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is simply a rebranding of the original Arab-Israeli Conflict which began all the way back near the beginning of the last century. It has had many violence filled events such as the riots in Hevron and Jerusalem in 1922, 1929, 1933, 1936, and 1939. Then there was the first Arab Israeli War which is usually referred to as Israel’s War for Independence in 1948 and 1949. There was the Six Day war in 1967 followed by its second staging in 1973. There has been the terror war from the early 1920’s which continues today which too has had some special events. Other than the numerous riots mentioned earlier there was also the founding of the PLO in 1964, three full years before the War of 1967 and any presumably occupied territories, numerous kidnappings, attacks across the northern border by Hezballah, and the near countless rockets launched from Gaza and recently out of the northern Sinai Peninsula. The rebranding of the Arab Israeli Conflict into the Palestinian Israeli Conflict was implemented as the former made Israel to appear to be the weaker side of the conflict and the new moniker placed the Arab cause as the little David fighting the massive Israel Goliath. Do not believe anything has changed. This change came about when the Arab countries, realizing they likely could not defeat Israel in a straight up military versus military war decided to change tactics and try to wear Israel down and eventually either gain the necessary weapons or military strength and abilities to once again try the frontal military conflict route.

Then there is one last item which needs to be understood before any real solution can be implemented. It has never been and will never be for the foreseeable future the Arab, Muslim, Palestinian or whatever name is placed to struggle against Israel idea to settle for anything less than the complete subjugation of the Israeli Jews or the complete annihilation of every Jew in Israel (or, as Hamas has in their Charter, the world). Should by some major mishap the Palestinian find themselves in a position where they have to accept and sign a peace with Israel and establish Palestine, this will not be the end of the conflict. There have been numerous times that both Arab and Muslim leaders as well as Palestinian leaders and spokespeople have stated plainly that even should they attain a state in all of the land lost in the 1967 War, that is just the first stage towards the elimination of the Zionist State. This is almost always said in Arabic or Farsi but on a few rare occasions somebody has slipped and plainly said in English the truth that the only solution acceptable is a Final Solution. All the efforts to establish a Palestinian State are fruitless endeavors which will bear no fruit and will only change the starting point of the eventual next Middle East War when it is thought Israel has been brought low enough for her defeat. That is so very unfortunately the real truth of which everybody prefers to deny and pretend that all these efforts will truly end the drive to undo the founding of the Jewish State. It is simply appallingly amazing that in so much of the world there are calls for removing the Jews from within countries as happened in numerous Muslim countries between 1948 and 1953 yet in many of these same countries they also call for the destruction, or secretly work towards the destruction of Israel, of the only Jewish State. That begs an obvious question, if the Jews should be sent packing from countries where they are a minority and the only Jewish country should be wiped out, then where do these haters pretend that the Jews should live. And yes, that was a rhetorical question put forth simply to provoke thought. One can always hope to point out insanity so that it can be rectified and a real and truthful discussion free of pretenses may take place. Now that is something that would be so very welcome.
