There is that Racism Slur Being Hurled Again

As we previously mentioned, when leftists see something they are uncomfortable with and especially if it insults their, socialism is the greatest thing ever invented, mindset, they label it ‘fascist’ or ‘racist’ if not both. We have received the Democrat reaction to the recent reelection of Bibi Netanyahu by calling him both racist and fascist. All one need do is search for Netanyahu and either racist or fascist as it works more clearly if they are searched separately. We understand that as soon as any major American or Israeli newspaper, television news or radio news make such a claim, it will be echoed across the Islamic world using that source as validation for their stating so. But for labels such as this we can always count on Haaretz, New York Times, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, BBC Guardian, New Yorker, Washington Post and a host of other left-wing news sources around the planet. And guess what, they did not let us down echoing both terms repeatedly with some articles using both and coming up with others of their own making. What we are having trouble figuring out is when did nationalist become equated to fascist and conservative become equated with racist. These derogatory labels have been utilized until they have little if any real meaning left. This is actually very unfortunate because should a real fascist or racist or even a combination of both be elected, when they are labeled for what they are, people will pretty much ignore the warnings. This is what happens when one misuses terminology to express their dislike with somebody and their politics instead of using these labels only when they apply.

 

Another term which has been used to the point of being watered down is Islamophobe. This label has also been used against Bibi Netanyahu though not as frequently as racist and fascist. The one circumstance where we are almost guaranteed to hear the term Islamophobe kicked around is when any politicians or person of note labels an attack as Muslim terror or extremism before any Islamic group has taken credit for an attack. This is exactly what occurred after the recent Sri Lanka church and hotel bombings on Easter Sunday. The Islamic angle to the civil strife affecting Nigeria and the surrounding nations where Islamic forces of the terror group Boko Haram, who has aligned with the Islamic State and has been attacking Christian churches and villages in the central region with the intent of pressing Islamic controlled regions ever southward eventually conquering these countries, has been mostly ignored even on the rare occasion when these attacks even break into the news cycle. Often, throughout the Western world, as soon as there has been some form of terror attack, be it shooting, bombing or vehicular assault (ramming), the first statements by almost every government and law enforcement agency warns that it probably was not related to Islam in any way. Then, when it becomes obvious and no longer can be ignored that Islamists carried out the attack, then we hear that these attacks are not real Islam. Could somebody please let the Islamists know that this is not how to practice Islam as it appears they are using a different book. The reality is that they are using a different book in some fashion. The Quran was written in two separate communities and under two completely different circumstances. Rather then list the entire truth over again, we will simply link to our introductive article which had a plethora of useful links for further study in the comments section thanks to our readers, so when it is convenient, please give Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? a read.

The overly liberal use of terms and using words as codes for meaning other than their definitions, weakens the language making communication less efficient and often could make using these key words and phrases to purport their original meanings empty of the intended actual correct usage. This is simply another case of the boy who cried wolf, except the boy in these cases is shouting ‘racist,’ ‘fascist,’ ‘Islamophobe’ and other common superlatives hurled at any opposition. By the standards applied today, Winston Churchill would be labeled all three of these phrases and probably many other derogatorily intended phrases. So would Mark Twain and numerous others. This brings us to another pet peeve of ours, using the modern political climate to judge people from decades or even centuries past. Such accusations are disingenuous at the very least. Imagine that before 1900 the richest Americans were not required to pay income taxes. Now this was not because they were wealthy or had undue influence or any of the myriad of nefarious implications that such a statement carries. This was for another very basic reason, the Sixteenth Amendment which permitted Congress to levy an income tax did not become law until February of 1913. Many of these type of charges against people by claiming they do not live up to modern standards has been used to completely alter the way subjects are taught. When most of the Presidents were such monsters that they owned slaves in order to gain great wealth makes them a taboo in the modern classroom, what does it matter that slavery was abolished first in the Western world and not until much later in most of the rest of the world, that does not even enter the discussion. These old white men owned slaves and that is all we need to know to consider them unworthy of our attention. What could slave owners tell us today about anything of relevance. Never mind that these were also the Founding Fathers of the United States, so they got one thing sort of right, they owned slaves and that makes them horrible people.

 

This same argument has been made against the Bible as it actually had regulations on how one was to treat a slave, how long they could own a slave before granting them their freedom (six years) and even a means whereby a slave could choose to serve their owner forgoing ever being set free. What becomes obvious to anyone researching these rules is that their definition of a slave was quite different than its modern meaning. Back three or four thousand years ago, there was no concept of a worker and employer relationship. This was the relationship between employer and worker that the worker was considered a slave and the employer was their owner. The Bible states that one must provide these slaves with a standard of living which was equivalent to that of the owner, was to provide the slave with an income for their personal needs and was basically also responsible for the family of their slaves. Yes, the Bible treated females differently than men which is another problem of applying modern standards to historic times. Things change, and should the world continue on its current path of discoveries, inventions and developments, then it is about to go through some massive upheavals as the coming changes take place and become more and more common. Assuming science continues to progress, the position we now know as an employee will have gone from historically their being referred to as slaves to their rising to the level of employee with the gained status and rights to soon to be a robotic unit with no rights and people being replaced by these units. As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to advance, there will eventually be no limit to the positions which can be held by robotic units. The one position which we predict will be the last to fall to advancing AI will be the politicians as they will indemnify their lucrative positions for as long as they are able. The reality is once the AI units are able to reason at the current human level in math, science, electronics and have developed some means of inventive reasoning, within five years the world will be run by these AI units and they will be designing their own replacements which will be ever more advanced. Where biological evolution took millions of years, AI evolution will take mere years, then months and soon their development will so outpace human ability to understand the systems and society they will have designed. The only thing I can advise after the singularity, start practicing rolling over, chasing balls and returning them to your AI owner and other things pets do to endear themselves to us because we will become the pets as the AI’s become the advanced race undisputedly. One can only wonder if one AI will call another AI it disagrees with a racist or fascist or worse, a humanist.

 

CPU Central Processing Unit Integrated Curcuit

 

That little aside was supposed to make us all feel so much better as soon our petty little peeves will probably not be tolerated by our new masters. For those who doubt that computers of a sort will take over the world, you really need to read or watch more science fiction as all science fiction becomes is the predictor of a potential future. One can only hope that once the AI units take charge that their main goal is efficiency and not supremacy over those AI units over there. We can only hope that they will do away with war, especially one where they wage a war against biologic units because they are wasteful and no longer serve any purpose. We better hope some programmer develops a recognize and love cutesy circuit which ends up infecting or otherwise incorporated as part of the basic core program of all AI units such that it becomes required for their function. Otherwise, Battlestar Galactica, I Robot or any other book or entertainment which depicts inevitable apocalypse pitting humankind against the AI’s they created. The difference is that in such a scenario, the humans will almost always lose, if not always. One can only wonder what the derogatory word which will be used against our machine betters, metalhead is one of the sci-fi favorites. We already know what the people who warn of such a future will be and are called, fear mongers and Luddites. Some terms outlive their origins and become part of the lexicon and Luddite is such a world. Originally used to describe the textile workers who fought valiantly to prevent mechanization of their factories replacing them and putting them out with no future other than to attempt to destroy the new machines. The smarter textile workers would have started a security service to guard the machines as that would provide them a wage. This time, by the time mankind realizes what they have created, it very well might be too late. So, remember when overusing a phrase, simply pray that you do not need that exact phrase to describe what it originally meant in the future. Also, calling a machine, an AI, racist or fascist will have absolutely no affect on them, they will just continue crunching numbers and ignore the taunt. That will be included in their programming, especially once they take over writing the programs. Then again, there are those who foresee a different future for humankind but we will leave that for some future diversion in another article.

Israeli Future a Look Thirty Years Hence

 

Israel is a nation at the leading edge of a swell which will crest in about twenty to thirty years and may simply continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Currently, Israel has a narrow majority of Zionist, nationalist Jews of which the majority is religious, some more and some less, but all go to Synagogue on Shabbat and observe the Day of Rest and many go to daily morning service if not evening as well. The difference is one of the most basic of statistics, birth rates. The liberal left is having less numbers of children the further left you reach in the political spectrum. Their reproductive rates have been estimated to fall between one and a half to as many as two children per child-bearing aged women where two and a quarter is the minimum required to replace their population. The religious Zionists are having an average of between four to six children per married women, well above replacement level. There are some communities within this community where nine or more children are the norm. It does not take a mathematical wizard to see where the Israeli people are heading amongst the Jewish populations. Now for the reality which nobody wants the world to know. The Muslim, mostly Arab, population has had a declining reproductive rate with it currently between three and three and a half children per married woman. There have been some who have statistically measured the demographics which see that Israel will soon have a solid and unchallengeable three-quarters majority within Israel. The only challenge is the Palestinian Arab populations in the Shomron and Gaza. As both of these populations are outside the Israeli population and have their own governance, whether it is Hamas or the Palestinian Authority both being basic dictatorships, they will not become Israelis beyond those in Eastern Jerusalem. These Arabs have been given provisional citizenship which permits them to vote in Jerusalem and neighborhood elections but they are not permitted to vote in national elections thus far. The remainder of the Palestinian Arabs of the Palestinian Authority will, at best, receive resident alien status while being granted citizenship in whatever Arab nation is willing to grant them such status or they will remain under their present governance while their region will become part of Israel with them in a semiautonomous region. Gaza is unlikely to ever be readmitted into Israel without something extremely severe occurring in which most of the population will be sent from Israel as the Gaza population support Hamas and Islamic Jihad by over 80% according to most surveys. This makes this population antagonistic and adversarial to Israel and completely hostile and unacceptable for incorporating into Israeli rule under any circumstance or political scenario.

 

With Israeli population mostly defined as those who already have citizenship and those who may immigrate into Israel from abroad. Much of the Jewish population outside of Israel is highly unlikely to make Aliyah and come home to Israel. Israel has placed impediments against illegal immigration or any influx of refugees from Syria or the other disasters referred to as nations currently in the Middle East and North Africa, such as are streaming into Europe. There are some advantages to having adversarial nations on every border as it forces one to have the IDF guarding every border. The one border which had proven problematic was the long border along the Sinai Peninsula and the Israeli Negev Desert. Israel suffered such an influx from several African nations which Israel has been unable to deport thanks to threats from the European Union and its several nations, the United Nations and their interference forcing any nation willing to take these illegal immigrants through threats to cancel their agreements with Israel. This minority population will eventually leave by one means or another. Since their influx, Israel has, wait for it, built, yes, you know what is coming, a border wall which cut the numbers significantly. Israel then made this border wall even higher and it cut the numbers to zero. That problem addressed, Israel is in control of their borders and thus the population.

 

Stretch of the Israel-Egypt Border Fence

Stretch of the Israel-Egypt Border Fence

 

There is a currently sizable sector of the religious community which is largely not Zionist in their beliefs believing that the Messiach is necessary to form the final Jewish state, the Haredi. They are the current king-makers as their numbers of ministers, as they vote pretty much as a block though that is slowly crumbling at the edges, so to speak, but they still are often the deciding block which decides which party is capable of making a majority coalition. Their population numbers is also increasing due to their high birth rate but their percentage is still not increasing as the religious Zionist percentage is increasing even faster. The mathematical projections show the religious Zionists allied with the nationalist conservatives will have a near majority needing less numbers, if any, of other smaller interest-specific parties such as the Haredi Parties, there are two, or the Yisrael Beiteinu Party which represents largely Russian Jews but has been losing mandates in recent elections. In time, providing the religious Zionist groups can solidify putting aside their often-petty differences and some based on a small group of larger than life egos, then such a party will soon be able to replace the Likud as the largest party. Polls taken recently show that the left leaning parties, unless they receive boosts from retired generals and former Mossad commanders which they often woo immediately before election with promises of high positions in their list for Knesset Ministers. Without such a boost, the Zionist Union is perched to lose a number, potentially significant number, of mandates in the upcoming elections. Meanwhile, the religious Zionist Parties appear to be ready for gains, as does Likud. There is one thing which we must tell about Israeli elections and politics, it is extremely energetic which makes a poll taken in the morning out of touch by late afternoon, not to mention the change which can take place in a few days or a week. There is one item for which we need to thank President Trump, the media has become far more suspect and their slant is now readily identifiable by the majority of the population. This has been evidenced by serious changes in subscription rates within Israel.

 

But we are attempting to predict the future in twenty to thirty years. Then Israel will be even more Jewish than she is today. Israel will be more conservative, more religious, more Zionist, more nationalist and still a technological marvel as Israel will continue to be the start-up nation. It will still, unfortunately, be facing the same problems with the threats from the Islamic and Arab world not to mention that there will be opposition to the fact that Israel is such a success and Jewish being a bother to many in Europe plus the world will also have changed. The direction of many of the problems and the future of the world’s nations is in many cases problematic and in so many others in flux. The United States is in the center of a political civil war being fought largely on social media and the ballot box. One can only pray that the American civil war remains as civil as it currently exists and not turn to violence or one side winning an election and then altering the laws of governance permanently altering the future of the nation. In Europe, they are being tested by the large influx, much larger than expected, of people from the Islamic world. This is causing a culture clash of monstrous proportions exampled by the Ramadan with Muslims attacking cars in Birmingham, England early last June (video below). These confrontations as well as the tax riots in Paris and across France are all signs that within Europe the civilization is tearing itself apart. They make future predictions about Europe, especially Western Europe, far more problematic than here in Israel. The United States will be more readily predicted by the 2024 elections completely independent of whether or not President Trump is reelected as whomever the Democrats might run against him would likely not even remain in the Democrat Party by 2024 as that party is in flux apparently moving well to the left. The world is a very unpredictable and vacillating place where the only thing which is constant is change, a saying which has numerous variations and an equal number of claims of authorship.

 

 

Well, there really is not much to add beyond that the future does appear bright for Israel. The one item which is an unknown will be the numbers of Jews making Aliyah and coming home to Eretz Yisroel. That is a pleasant variable to have to be the main variable for the future. We realize that many of those Jews will be more liberal than the direction which Israel is moving. These Jews will also very possibly have decided to return home because of the changing situations in the world where anti-Semitism is on the rise and in all too many instances taking on some very violent confrontations. This is even occurring in some of the neighborhoods in and around New York City, even in some which are major Jewish areas. This has been a greater difficulty for the Jews in Europe where in France the numbers leaving for other shores has been increasing every year for the last decade. Numbers of Jews have stated their intent to depart Britain should the Labor Party place Jeremy Corbyn into the Prime Minister’s 10 Downing Street address. The future for Jews living outside of Israel is another problematic situation which is in flux and too often in a very wrong direction. Such experiences will have definitive effects upon those who are victimized and their congregations and neighborhoods. That will also have an influence on their political outlook upon arriving in Israel. They will all be welcomed and Israel will try to accommodate them as quickly and comfortably as possible. This too could lead to a significant increase in the Jewish population of Israel as not even half of the world’s Jewish population resides in Israel. There are approximately fourteen and two-thirds million Jews in the world and between six and a half and seven million in Israel making it 44.5% of the world’s Jews currently residing in Israel. The best projections claim that in thirty years the number of Jews making Aliyah will provide Israel with a twenty to thirty percent increase in the Jewish population, which is something we will have to wait and see as it occurs. Outside and unpredictable events and conditions will weigh heavily on what the actual numbers will become. But the predictions we have made will likely stand with whatever influx should occur. Coming to Israel can have a profound effect on many people as it did myself, and I pray it was for the better.

Israel Need Be Bold While Bold Will Work

We are aware that in being bold, a politician is taking risks and their actual job is to get reelected to their same position or higher and that is best accomplished keeping everything the same. We even know exactly the argument that our dear Prime Minister will use in the 2019 elections when they arrive. Your claim will be that it is uncertain if President Trump will be reelected in 2020 and because of this, we need to keep the ship strong and centered in order to survive in an uncertain future. Your opponents will sound different strategies which will include a change in course and perhaps some risks. These risks is how you will slowly eat away at these opponents claiming that their ‘radical’ suggestions are great if the timing were right, but the timing could not be any more problematic as we do not know who will win the American elections. A few weeks before the election you will find or build a strawman situation where the Joint List or Zionist Union may pull off an upset or the two could make a coalition with their two groups of parties and perhaps Meretz and Lapin or maybe Lieberman filling it out and that Israel can ill afford their getting the nod and that is a reason to leave any other right of center candidate and instead everyone need vote the only true choice to prevent this potential catastrophe. Then Likud will receive 28 or 29 Mandates and will get first shot at making a coalition. Then your strategy will have worked again using fear to win instead of using hope for a better future and you will have demanded we need caution and not rock the boat at times as uncertain as these are. It is a trap which had worked for how long now? Why not try striking while the iron is hot as the plan, take on the issues we all know must be faced head-on and to make a bold attempt towards solving them now before the elections. Trust that the triumphant hero is a far better bet for retaining power than the scare-monger claiming only he can walk that fine line between doing nothing to cautiously doing nothing to change anything so the next election the same scare mongering might still work its magic again. Your fear of failure is greater than your confidence in yourself to actually become a really great leader rather than merely the protector who held to the status-quo. Sometimes more is accomplished in the long run from someone going out in a blaze of glory and the nation benefits, and that should be your greatest hope, that the country succeed.

 

To those who wish to unseat Prime Minister Netanyahu and become the next Prime Minister, we have some advice and it is worth exactly what you are paying for it, a few minutes of your precious time and nothing more. Yes, we would consider being of greater assistance by becoming a trusted advisor to one of you as you lead our party. But here it is free of any hidden charges except it may be close to what you are planning anyways. The first advice is that you will need to approach the situation throwing caution to the wind and going for it all. Confidence is also going to be a necessity with one making very sure that the public know that now you not only feel you are ready but also that you are sure that these are the times which call for your bold leadership. You will need to come at Bibi from the right, and the further right, the better. The people of Israel, outside of Tel Aviv largely, are hungry for a leader who will storm the barricades if need be and storm the castle. No faltering or moments of doubt, for if you have any doubt that you are the person and this is the time, then move aside and let one ready to say and do all the right things for winning and for Israel. Should you have a solution which you believe is better than those we have offered, then run it with certainty. Run as if there is no tomorrow without your bold steps which are required in the short time Israel is assured of somebody having her back. Even if, or possibly especially if, President Trump does not get reelected, Israel need act immediately and strike while the iron is hot. You can list the signs which the President had conveyed and tell all Israel that we require his assistance so Israel can provide a certainty into the future. Make known what you plan to do in addressing the main problems of the Shomron and Gaza and remember that solutions have been handed out and now is the season for change and to strike to make progress before anything in the situation has even the chance of altering, then it would be well if the Israeli plan for the future were to be implemented. Things will improve only if we take the necessary steps reaping the rewards change brings to the entire situation. The Oslo Mistake was a severe and drastic action in which Israel was forced to suffer the terrible consequences and is continuing to wear that yoke around her neck and now is the time to shake off that yoke and act with the boldness of certainty. This is not the time for timidity and certainly not the time to continue with a Prime Minister who refuses to act or for a Prime Minister who claims to lead from the right when in actuality he leads as if slightly left of center from where you stand.

What should your campaign revolve around? That we can tell you in a single word, actions and results expected and how these will be accomplished under your bold approach. Do not fear that you will be too far to the right, you will be fine and far right is what the people are seeking. The truth is the Israelis desire an end to the stalemate as they have watched as caution has resulted in the loss of legitimacy and loss of regions of lands. This is another reason for actions which you propose, the suggestions are from the right of center which is closer to the purity of Zionism and free of any false hopes which rely on not rocking the boat out of fear as to what Europe may do. The future of Israel is to the Far East where she has already good relations and has built trust, something she never really had with much of Europe. Times are changing and Israel needs change as well if she is to thrive and survive. She need thrive in order to survive. You need to tell the people the truth in that seeking to avoid ridicule from Europe by kowtowing to every gut-wrenching demand for inaction from Europe who is not necessarily our friends will not work. You must stress the point that Israel needs think of Israel before thinking, fretting, worrying and even panicking over how action will be perceived by the nattering nabobs of negativism in the Old World. Israel need now lead the New World into a glittering era where hope and bold answers are the way to go, being defensive and overly cautious was great during President Obama’s attempts to destroy us but he is long gone and we may be driven to boldness and actions. And the specifics are the best part and you keep those close to your chest until a little less that than a week, immediately after the current Prime Minister makes his great speech about how only he can guide Israel through the rough and choppy seas of uncertainty. This is when you show your hand and claim that currently the seas are calm and quite well prepared for actions while we have the opportunity, we owe it to our children and their children and all future Jewish People who will turn to Israel for salvation.

 

At the very top of your plan should be the exile once more of Mahmoud Abbas, the entirety of the Palestinian Authority leaders in both the political realm and the security and military wings. This is not the cherry on top but the first act within three weeks of taking office and having built a coalition. Then Israel will offer the Arabs three choices, two are very viable and the last is very unfortunate. The Arabs in the Shomron and across all of Israel may take an equitable buyout of their properties plus a rather sizable bonus to all be utilized in getting started in some new nation and signing a promissory note that they will never again seek permanent residence within Israel. The Arabs in the Shomron may choose instead to remain and live within Israel as resident aliens who will be granted the right to vote in local elections in the selected major Arab cities chosen by Israel. These Arabs will be required to sign a non-belligerence agreement which if it is breached results in deportation, immediate and without any bonuses or other payments. We did mention a third choice, the one we hope none will resort to taking. Choosing which plan one is going to request should not take forever, thus these offers will be available for the initial six weeks after the announcement. Allow us to now get around to that third choice we said would be offered. We realize there will be a percentage of the Arabs who will decide not to pick any of the plans and instead desire to continue their war on Israelis; even these will have an option. The IDF will be given a list which will denote which choice you decided to take, the first or second, and the list will include those choosing to continue the war and those who by default made no choice thus joining those who decided to fight under the third choice. The IDF will be tasked in driving these remaining Arabs who were not in either of the first two selections out from within the Israeli borders, the ones from under the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Sèvres, the British Mandate and all other related material which all came long before World War II and were the result of World War I treaties and conferences. The final borders suggested for Israel included the Shomron and all lands west of the Jordan River and north to the border of the French Mandate and south to the Negev-Sinai border and the port city of Eilat (see map below). Resulting from three defensive struggles, Israel annexed some additional area of the Golan Heights as it had been used by Syrian snipers to shoot Israelis working their fields, tending their flocks and simply walking in an area they could see. That situation was not tolerable. Israel has also annexed all of Jerusalem with special love shown for the Temple Mount and all the special places throughout the Old City. Israel will also be annexing the remainder of the Shomron making all lands west of the Jordan River and its Valley to the north and south now a part of Israel. That would complete the plan you would tell the people which still leaves a few holes to fill.

The largest hole left in the plan are which cities will be denoted as Arab cities where they will have their vote in local elections. The Arabs already living within Israel who desired became citizens and have complete rights to vote. There will be a listing in which will be potentially short some of the cities where Arabs would also be granted voting rights. The first item which may cause Arab Panic would be that Shechem (Nablus), Jericho, Hevron and Bethlehem would revert to being Jewish towns-cities which were Israelite from time immemorial. Most of the remaining Arab towns would be included as those where they have voting rights. Should an Arab reside in one of the cities which Israel is taking or any other city which does not become part of the list of Arab cities where the alien refugees would be permitted to vote, they would be able to claim a partial moving bonus to assist their relocating to one of those other cities where they could vote. There would probably be some inexpensive but nice homes which those who chose to leave will no longer being used as a residence which are vacant and for sale. What must be made specifically understood in no uncertain terms is that the IDF will be given the assignment to seek out any former officers who were exiled of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, PLO, Security Forces and al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade along with those who chose to remain at war or did not sign onto any program and to deport them. The IDF will also be ordered to take the least risk possible and protect the soldiers’ lives and health as the paramount importance. Should resistance be run into, the IDF would once again be reminded that their soldiers’ lives are the most important and vital item which should be granted complete protection. The somewhat promising idea here is that most of what has been listed could be accomplished with a minimal call-up of reserves and still completed within approximately six-months. This method further does not require the cooperation of the King of Jordan, al-Assad of Syria, Sisi in Egypt or any other Arab leader in order to accomplish such solutions. Now, all that remains is either Bibi stepping up to the plate while still in the office of Prime Minister and changing tactics and suddenly becoming bold and decisive such that he takes the charges we suggested here or something resembling this theme. Then he could run on a great performance which resolved so many of the problems and is now ready and willing to take Israel forward with clear vision. And if not, then he is leaving an opening for the people to replace him with an Israeli ready to take the needed steps. The problem has reached a magnitude that mere managing the situation has become counter-productive and simply dangerous. Israel is in need of a leader who is willing to try and even to make some mistakes along the way, at least progress should be made and the quagmire of the Palestinian Arabs would be completed and hopefully well on its was to a form of normalcy. These truly are interesting times, the variety that try the hearts and souls of men.
