The International Ploy to Destroy Israel

 

The Arabs generally and the Palestinian Arabs particularly will never give-up on their dreams to destroy Israel. The history of this is something which we have spoken of before and will not repeat the litany of pogroms, riots, wars and propaganda thrown at this obsession since the start of the return of Zionist Jews over a century and a half, from the 1850’s to the modern era. The cost in lives and treasure to both sides is incalculable. What we wish to discuss here is the latest pathway, the new strategy, which has been employed largely by Mahmoud Abbas over the last decade and a half and now more generally by Palestinian Authority (PA) officials as well as a smattering of others. The most recent use came from Palestinian Authority official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki. The tactic is referred to as internationalizing the problem and it is only natural that the root of the problem and the cause for it remaining unsolved would be pressing for another route to futility. The one secret which is seldom admitted in English, but spoken of quite freely in Arabic, is that any solution which allows for even the smallest remnant of Israel as a Jewish State remains, the Arabs will refuse to end their working to destroy that entity. The sole acceptable final solution is a form of the Final Solution which some have claimed was introduced in the Wannsee Conference by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II working with the Nazis and mixing amongst the elite in Berlin. This has been carried down through the interceding time by his protégés Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas. Obviously, this illness is contagious as the entirety of the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds are thoroughly infected and the contagion is sweeping through Europe once more with the seeds already sprouting in the United States. We have already witnessed this disease of the mind and heart take command of a conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

Further breakouts of this disease have taken the form of Zionism equals racism which was passed by the United Nations General Assembly in their Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 with 32 abstentions, which actually stated that the United Nations General Assembly has “determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.” It took sixteen years before the United Nations revoked their Zionism is racism manifesto in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 which read as follows, “The General Assembly Decides to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975.” That was quite a bit less lengthy than the original which referred to Zionism at least three times in expounding on it as being every form of racism. Well we guess that apologies are often less full of bluster and considered appropriate opprobrium as embarrassment is best stated as one is moving past as rapidly as they are able. It would be difficult to be more curt than that removal of a stain which had been worn by most in that world body with pride and in many a way is still worn with prideful abandon to this day.

 

Meanwhile, PA official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki speaking at the MED Dialogues conference in Rome insisted, “The Palestinians are still waiting for the international community to try to resolve the Palestinian problem that has been created by the international community.” With this, he continued blaming the international community with the foundation of Israel in 1948. Quoting further protestations, he continued, “Unfortunately, none of you is taking serious, credible and responsible steps to solve the problem.” Then turning to defame both President Trump and his entire administration, Riyad al-Maliki added, “which has really sided with Israel, taken the wrong side of history, of justice.” Wrong side of justice, really? But he was far from finished, as he stated further, “If the Americans are not willing to do anything, Europe should do that.” And finally getting to the point, he insisted, “We should force the change to happen, that’s why we are pushing for a European role” including backing an international peace conference.” Finally, we have the crescendo heading to the conclusion which is, “It’s not our responsibility to protect the two-state solution, it’s your responsibility.” I don’t believe any of you will accept another apartheid regime to emerge in the 21st century.” Remember that Mahmoud Abbas has flatly refused to even consider any proposal put forth by President Trump and is now insisting that an international group resembling the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its make-up be established to decide the fates of the PA and Israel.

 

Why are they insisting on such an assembly that will decide what actually needs to be resolved between the two parties? The reason is that the Palestinian Arabs’ leaders do not desire a solution but dissolution of the Jewish State and they know a UNGA styled conglomerate would easily pass anything the Arabs proposed while refusing everything proposed in favor of Israel. They would readily accept making Palestine defined as the Green Line and the Jordan River with its capital in East Jerusalem and then further rule that Israel be ruled by Arab leadership where there are guarantees that the Jews will be treated as the world body would expect. Somehow, such a situation does not fill the Jews of Israel as an idea with which we would be able to live, and that is our main problem with having the Arabs as our masters, history had taught us how that would end. All one need do is look at the vast majority of resolutions condemning Israel passed by the UNGA as well as the Human Rights Council, UNICEF, UNESCO and the other various tentacles of the United Nations. The General Assembly on these matters likely averages, we estimate, at 115 favor sanctioning Israel, 9 opposes such sanctioning and around 35 abstain or vote present. Is it any wonder that Israel would refuse to allow for her fate to be decided largely by the 57 Muslim States in league with the majority of the over 100 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement of developing nations? That would be very similar to over one-hundred hungry wolves with around ten fat and happy sheep surrounded by thirty-five large rocks all voting as to what should be dinner. The rocks do not care, the sheep bleat softly unable to be heard over the cacophonic din of howling wolves right before their feast. That is what the Palestinian Arabs are seeking, complete and total victory leading to the eradication of the Zionist entity and those who comprise the Jewish State.

 

As stated, this ploy is not new and will fail as it has to this point. The problem comes when one realizes that every last demand ever made by the Arabs has eventually come to pass. They simply choose the next target and then relentlessly pursue that goal using Saudi and others oil money and skillful use of all forms of media, something easily accomplished with the funds available. This has been carried further with oil money buying Middle East Department Chair which determine the course material and information provided, none of which gives Israel even the hint of legitimacy and proclaims the lie that Israel was Europe’s apology for the Holocaust. This is completely invalid as the initial start for the founding of Israel was the formal agreement to accept the Balfour Declaration letter of 1917 enjoining it to the San Remo Conference which was adopted further by the League of Nations into the Mandate System which was adopted by the United States in the Anglo-American Treaty and finally adopted by the United Nations in Article 80 of their charter. All of these events dated before World War II with the exception of the United Nations assuming responsibility for final enforcement of the Mandates from after World War I. Further steps are in the works and already bearing fruit for the Arab side as they are gaining influence on the public school systems and particularly the printing of history books and their references to the Middle East even to have included maps which show Israel as an invader which is erasing a former nation of Palestine. The small and possibly insignificant truth is that there has never been a nation called Palestine, no nation other than modern and ancient Israel and Judea have had Jerusalem as their capital city. Yet the insistence is that history must teach how the Jews have usurped the lands west of the Jordan River blaming it on European colonialism and demanding that the Jews return to their origins in Europe. That begs the question as to what the other half of Israeli Jews, whose nation of origins which forced them out after stealing their wealth, businesses, homes and anything valuable were the numerous Arab states, supposed to do. Will Libya, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the rest take back these Jews and their children and grandchildren? That is highly doubtful. Then there are the children whose parents are one from Europe and the other from an Arab nation, what to do with these children. Perhaps this is where the solution by King Solomon might apply, well, except the Arabs claim that King Solomon either never existed and never built any temple or that he was a Muslim and he build a Mosque. Colleges across Europe and the United States are teaching a creeping form of anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and are taking no discernable efforts to curb anti-Semitism. These are the future leaders of the world, the nations of Europe and the United States as well as Canada, and their falsehoods learned now as the real truth will forever have effects upon their thinking. This is part of why the Palestinian Arabs refuse every treaty which leaves Israel existing in any form as the Jewish State and not with the Arabs ruling over the Jews, as they explain, the Quran states that this is the natural order of the world. The Quran also divides the world into two camps, the one of peace where Islam rules and the ones of war waiting to be conquered by Islamic forces. The Quran presumably claims that no lands once ruled by a Muslim must ever be permitted rule by any other. That makes Israel a problem as long as it is ruled by Jews.

 

This Arab-Israeli conflict is a simple conflict to understand once the reality is understood. This is not a war over land, if that were the case, it would have been resolved by now. This is not about Israel being a colonial power placed in the heart of the Islamic world. That claim is a simple means of falsifying the Jews claim to their ancient homelands. As far as Islam is concerned, the Jews never resided in the area of Israel despite evidence. This is true under Islam which believes that history started when Islamic forces marched against the Jews of Medina and against Mecca before moving out of the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the world. That was between 710 and 725 A.D. This is why they missed ancient Israel which was destroyed by Rome in 135 A.D. and its peoples spread throughout the Empire so as to assure that the world would never again know the Jews, just as they had dispersed the Carthaginians in order to erase them as a people. Today one would be hard pressed to find a Carthaginian and despite being a small minority, the Jews still exist and leave their mark on the world. Sometimes these newer religions have a difficulty imagining the Jews who have a three-thousand year plus history going back to somewhere around 2500B.C.E. when Abraham left for the lands the Lord would show him. That actually would mean that the history of the Jewish People which begins with the birth of the Israelites with Abraham making the contract with Hashem somewhere around 4500 years ago. That was when the initial promise was made. Somewhere soon after this date was when Abraham paid premium price to purchase the Cave outside Hevron in which to bury Sarah. Eventually Sarah would be joined in burial there by Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah all in good time. The cave and the field before it were purchased by Abraham which was the first area of land that our forefather purchased and from which Israel came into being. That is the Jewish claim to these lands.

 

This war is to deny the Jews a homeland and to make them wanderers despised wherever they reside. The Muslims do not recognize any right of the Jews as they see the Jew as an accursed brute to be scorned and put down regarding them as barely human. The hatred taught by Islam of the Jews is beyond imagination. People from the Western developed world cannot begin to fathom the vile acrimonious contempt the Middle Eastern Arab Muslims feel towards Jews. That is the basis for their war against Israel. Just review the history. Half a dozen Arab nations sent their armies to aid the militias in destroying the Jewish State on the morning of her birth in 1948 and they failed. Again, in 1967 we had the Six Day War where Arab forces from at least six or seven nations failed to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the Sea. In 1973, there was another attempt to destroy the Jewish entity during the Yom Kippur War, and again they failed. This was the turning point when the Arab world invented a proxy to fight in their stead, the Palestinian Arabs. They were to utilize terror, warfare, propaganda and would be aided by the Arab world in destroying Israel in stages. This is a war of annihilation where the Jews must be eradicated. Hamas has in their charter the demand that every last Jew be hunted down and murdered. The PLO were not much different, they only claimed the desire to murder every Zionist and Jew in Israel. Do not believe the false claims that if only Israel would grant them their state that all would be well. Israel completely evacuated Gaza of Jews and any Israelis even those not Jewish and turned it over to the Arabs and we see what that produced, and it was a far cry from peace.

 

This is not a war over land, not a war over nationhood, not a war in any normal modern rules of engagement; it is a war of extermination and there will not be peace as long as Israel exists. Simply stated, Israel must be destroyed and the Jewish State be no more with all the Jews being slaughtered as would most of the Christians and people of other faiths. Even should Israel clear Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and allow Gaza to rule itself as a protected area where the IDF freely operates to prevent any terrorist group from starting to try and take control while clearing Area C of the Shomron and allowing the PA to rule as a semiautonomous region also protected by the IDF, this would not even approach being the end of the claims of the Arabs and their allies. Should the situation on all fronts explode into violence simultaneously, with Gaza, Shomron and Lebanon, overseen by Hamas, the PLO and Hezballah, throwing everything they could at Israel and Israel counterstrike destroying all adversaries, that would only allow a pause. There would then begin terror strikes across all borders. In Lebanon Israel would be holding everything south of the Litani River and to the east there are the Golan Heights and the Jordan River and to the south Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula, a wild place inhabited largely by terrorists and criminal elements and largely untamed by Egypt. The war would continue and there is nothing which Israel could do to end this conflict. Even should Israel turn off the electricity, natural gas, water and end the tractor-trailers carrying tons of goods daily into Gaza, they would simply allow their public to live without basic necessities just to continue to manufacture rockets to fire into Israel. They would continue to surround the rocket launchers with children, have women encircle any building Hamas needs and have their commanders and leaders crawling into their bunker located under the al-Shifa Hospital. The only way for peace to be attained is either Israel and the Jews are destroyed or Islam reaches a point where they no longer insist that they rule the world and every knee bend to Allah. The first is not going to happen if it can be avoided and the second will not be an easy transformation. Despite what the developed world thinks, there are still those whose fancy is to rule the entirety of the globe, and those who merely desire to take the initial steps feeling assured that their efforts would lead to world domination. Apparently, world domination had rested on waiting for Israel to be crushed. As Israel has resisted crushing, the Muslim world has already begun to prepare for the second phase, infiltration through massive illegal immigrants just entering demanding asylum. These waves have struck Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, Greece and have begun in North America. Apparently, Israel is contained though they will always try and destroy her. The question before the world now is how they are going to deal with creeping Sharia and its implications. The time to act has long passed and still little if anything has been performed which would act to prevent Sharia from entering our nations as it is a means of implanting an Islamic jurisprudence. What to do if the two sets of laws are in contradiction, the state law wins, initially followed by nightly rioting burning vehicles and terrorizing neighborhoods and pickets outside the Congress and other houses of parliament demanding that Islamic law is supreme and their old laws must yield to Sharia. Wake up now before it is too late, or is it already too late for most of Europe. Israel will hang on and remain, will your nation?

Gaza Heading for Final Confrontation

 

The Hamas government in cooperation with Iran and the other terror leaders has decided on a steady infestation of violence along the border with Israel. They have found a low-tech means of launching explosive devices by using helium balloons and kites to set much of the surrounding farmland in Israel alight. These efforts have burned down many millions of dollars of crops and equipment as well as destroyed square miles of protected forests and wildlife reserves. They use their youth, largely people under thirty and most less than twenty years of age. The claims are these are spontaneous demonstrations which just happen to, more often than not, increase every Friday afternoon resulting from sermons calling them to action by their Imams. To believe this, one needs to ignore the claims that Hamas pays families to come to these outbursts in order to be part of the photo-ops which the media uses to prove these are completely innocent and peaceful protests, well, except for the riots, the firebombings, the explosive devices, the thrown grenades and the snipers who shoot at the IDF troops from behind the youths attempting to destroy the border fence. Does the United Nations call emergency sessions to condemn the violence on the Gaza border? That is reserved for when Israel responds and takes steps to quell the violence such as came when Israel responded to the initial surge back around the end of last March. For the next emergency session of the United Nations General Assembly, simply wait for the next time Israel feels forced to act against the continuing Gaza violence. This is the norm at the United Nations as the only time there is an emergency is when Israel defends herself.

 

Hamas has not been resting on their laurels as they are continuing to dig tunnels into Israel even to the point of one which tunneled out under the Mediterranean Sea trying to find an alternate route the Israelis might not detect. These tunnels have mostly, if not completely, been detected by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and summarily exploded. Hamas has put so much effort and use of funds into these tunnels, that had they used the material and efforts to rebuild the structures damaged in the last three wars Hamas forced upon Israel, they could have rebuilt all the damaged structures, built some new schools, two new hospitals and at least a half dozen clinics. For a map of these tunnels, please study the map below. Just this week, Israel was required to destroy another of these infiltration tunnels, one might call them attack and kidnap tunnels as this is what is their intended use, once more this week (see map below). There have been fifteen of these tunnels found and destroyed by Israel. We pray that that has also been the complete number such that we do not awaken one morning to some horrific news of some town, village, kibbutz or other region close to Gaza had people slaughtered and their children kidnapped. Even should such a terrible even occur, we still would not expect the United Nations General Assembly to be called into special session that morning. They would be called into special session the following morning after Israel responded with a major incursion into Gaza in an attempt to rescue the children. The Israeli response to such an act of violence and the abduction of her children would be roundly condemned by a vote which would resemble one-hundred-fifteen condemning Israel, twelve voting against that condemnation and thirty or so abstaining, voting present or simply voting absent. It will be at the future times such as this where Nikki Haley will be most missed.

 

Hamas Infiltration Tunnels Dug into Israel

Meanwhile, on the other front with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its terror base, Israeli suffered having a thirty-two-year-old IDF reserve soldier being wounded in a stabbing attack near the Samaria Regional Brigade Base. According to reports, a twenty-six-year-old Israeli woman who was in the area was also lightly wounded. These attacks are in addition to the recent attacks in which Ziv Hagbi, Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ari Fuld were murdered by Arab terrorists from the PA ruled regions. Returning to Gaza, the confrontations and increased use of grenades and explosive incendiary devices as well as shooting at IDF positions and the burning of an abandoned forward position which was not used since the early violence had forced a response by the IDF. There has been increased movement and apparent reinforcement at some of the most critical points around Gaza. Despite these threats, Israel has attempted to continue to deliver critical aid to Gaza but has faced Hamas refusal of the aid or their simply taking the aid for their own use or for sale on the black market. Hamas refuses to distribute international aid as by keeping the Gazans starved economically, they can more easily control them through distribution of the aid they have confiscated and meanwhile gain funds for their terror funding. Hamas further can use the economic ruin of Gaza as a stick with which they strike at Israel with the United Nations echoing, actually amplifying, blaming Israel for the impoverishing of Gaza which is caused by Hamas.

 

The problem is what may be about to come upon the world yet again, that the actions of Hamas aided by Islamic Jihad and Iran may escalate their violence on the border with Israel leading to the Israeli government having little choice but to finally respond. Then we will most definitely see any number of meetings of the General Assembly and calls for the Security Council to intervene in order to end Israeli aggression. Israel has faced almost seven months filled with violence and attacks against Israel causing the destruction of the livelihoods of all the farming cooperatives and individual farms and the destruction of forests and wildlife reserves and not a peep out of the United Nations. Now, should Israel finally act after over half a year of regimented and ever increasing destruction to the surrounding countryside with intermittent firing of rockets, then we will hear the United Nations General Assembly decrying the awful and unprovoked violence of the IDF and the misuse of military power by the Israeli government all without any perceived aggression against Israel. The Israelis who reside near Gaza have been living under constant threat for this entire period with their warning sirens of the Red Alert System going off where many were false triggers, fortunately. Still, there have been a couple of dozen rockets fired this year and the increased actions along the Gaza border is often the pressures to large escalations with numerous rockets being fired for a couple, three, four days and then a claim that Hamas has agreed to an Egyptian brokered ceasefire. This is more often a ruse as they do this in an attempt to prevent any Israeli response. Meanwhile, the United Nations General Assembly will be standing in the ready to react to any Israeli response decrying the Israeli escalation of the violence and demands that Israel cease their unwarranted and excessive violence against the innocent people of Gaza.

 

People often query as to what will be the final determination which will end this cycle of violence between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. The actual answer is obvious and will never be accepted by the United Nations General Assembly or their agencies such as UNESCO, Human Rights Council, UNICEF and almost any other agency and the vast majority of their NGO structure. There are only two possible ends to this conflict. Either the Arab forces will realize their desired revenge and every Jew and many others in Israel will be murdered in a great bloodletting or Israel will end up forcing the Palestinian Arabs across the Jordan River and sweep Hamas and Islamic Jihad into the Sinai Peninsula which will not end the violence but will at least now make the terrorists act from within foreign nations. We believe that eventually, hopefully before not too many more on both sides have their lives taken, there will come an Israeli government which decides they will no longer live with the current insanity as the daily normal. They will take the leadership of the PA, the PLO, Fatah and the PA Security Forces and send them into exile denoting them as persona non-gratas. The Israeli government will offer the Palestinian Arabs to buy their property and give them a generous resettlement reward if they choose to leave the region which is legally Israel and settle elsewhere. Those Arabs who are honest and desire a real new start in life will take this offer and we will wish them the best and wave good-bye. The ones who remain will be told they will be treated as resident foreign aliens and should they find any having any connection with terrorism, those such connected will be sent into exile and labeled as persona non-gratas. These Arabs will be permitted to receive a buyout of their property should they decide to leave Israel within the next year. After this, the remainder, should they decide to leave Israel, will only receive any reimbursement for their property if they should fund a buyer. But there is another front which will be a more difficult problem.

 

The Gaza front is completely different than the PA regions, as the PA ruled area is actually part of Israel and they have their current semiautonomous governance but only as long as Israel will suffer their presence, because the Hamas governance in Gaza took control of what was supposed to have been a region where the PA was given complete autonomy of the region in order to prove their viability as an actual operating state. The coup by Hamas placed them ruling over this region which Israel had released her claims to Gaza. This means that Gaza could be recognized as an actual nation and is not occupied by Israel in any way. Yes, Israel has placed a blockade on the virtual nation of Gaza once the terrorist group Hamas took control in 2007 replacing the PA in control of the region. Before Hamas took control of Gaza and after August 2005 when Israel removed her presence in Gaza, completely to the last individual, there was no blockade and Gaza was able to trade with anyone directly. It was upon the coup when Hamas took over Gaza and murdered a large number of the PA security personnel and governing officials, many of which were simply taken to the roof of the tallest buildings in Gaza City and sent them to the road below by the fastest route available. This was when Israel found it necessary to blockade Gaza from direct shipments, having all trade unload at the docks in Ashdod where the goods are processed for military materials and then passed directly into Gaza. Israel ships tons of goods into Gaza daily, even when there are active hostilities between Hamas and Israel. The final solution to the Gaza threat will come once the PA has been settled and most, if not all, their resident Arabs taking the Israeli offer and will have relocated outside Israel allowing Israel to simply recognize Gaza as a nation. Once this has been accomplished, any aggressions against Israel from within Gaza would be treated as acts of war. This could lead to a final solution as Israel could, after sufficient aggressive actions, declare war against Gaza and once defeated, the citizens of Gaza could be deported from the region as a result of this war. That would be the advantage to recognizing Gaza as an independent nation, which is actually a valid recognition as Israel has already ceded the land to the PA which lost this region in a violent coup. That left Hamas holding lands which Israel had ceded her ownership to the PA which makes Gaza technically a nation which could be named Hamasland. As a nation, Hamasland could be held responsible for acts of aggression and her people forced from the region should the area be lost to Israel in an actual and real war between nations. Such a war can result in the relocation of the entire population which has many precedents throughout history, and will be the likely end of violence with Gaza. If the citizens of Gaza are permitted to remain, they will be resident aliens without a nation. Why is it that Israel is so lucky as to get all the new and unusual situations and making these situations that may result in new conditions and populations, which if the situation was any other nation (with the possible exception of the United States) would be permitted to initiate a final and definitive solution which could easily include the resettlement of large populations in result of responses to violence and acts of war. Hamas will have to be removed from Gaza, and whatever is the result with the population, they must never be permitted to reengage in terrorism and should any feel such a need, they would need face exile and persona non-gratas status. Should Israel ever be forced to reconquer and take full control over Gaza, the resultant resolution for that population would require their being prevented from resuming terror acts and other forms of violence against Israel (and also Egypt). This would require their being denied, at least initially, any form of self-rule as the result of an election in Gaza produced the Hamas majority in the last PA sponsored elections in 2005. It was in Gaza where Hamas received a comfortable majority which has been reported as being over three-quarters of the vote totals. Their support for Hamas in Gaza was partly responsible for the takeover by the terrorist group in 2007. This is why the population of Gaza would need to be deHamasized in a similar manner as Germany had to be deNazified after World War II. That would also be a very difficult form of deprogramming, as for these people their support of Hamas is steeped in their religious beliefs and thus next to impossible to change by any normal means. This is why their being relocated is actually the only real solution which would remove any threat from rematerializing. That is the difficulty which the world would ignore as they would demand that Israel allow the people of Gaza to have self-rule if they promise to forgo terrorism. That is right; Israel would be demanded by most of the world to take their word that they would act civilly in the future as if there is no such thing as Taqiyyah in Islam. But why should the world worry about their honesty as they would not be the targets of the forthcoming terrorism, Israel would and that is just fine with the remainder of the world, well, most of them. The solution is to first recognize that there is no solution to the problem and thus the only true solution is the complete removal of the troublesome populations from the region and doing so with such finality that nobody would dare question the action.

To Make a Safer Israel

 

We will take a look at what it would mean to make Israel safe for all such that none need fear a knife in the back, a gun in their face or any other threat to life and limb. Such an Israel would make life better for both Jew, Muslim, Christian, Arab, Pilipino, Druze, Bedouin and anyone else be they temporary workers, tourists and especially people living inside the borders of Israel. This will not be an easy task nor will it come without some actions guaranteed for brandishing against Israel by her consistent detractors worldwide. The storms which will follow actions intended for mutual advancement and insuring safety for all will be portrayed as racist, the favorite charge of those opposed to equality for all and seeking only power for themselves. You will not have to believe us on this as if and when any of these ideas are adopted generally within Israel, the screaming which will follow calling the people behind the changes racist will be just the start. There will be meetings demanded in the United Nations General Assembly, the Human Rights Commission, petitions of the United Nations Security Council, claims filed with the Israeli Supreme Court, emergency sessions of the European Union and these are but an introduction before the storm of protests in every western capital and major city by all the usual suspect NGO’s. Still, the safety concerns and threats to all residing between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea must come to an end.

 

The main threat to all these people is terrorism. Terrorism affects every part of the Israeli community from the Jews to the Arabs and everyone inbetween. This scourge should never have been invited back into Israel with the return of Yasser Arafat. We now know that he did not return to be a partner to building the best Israel for all its peoples but as a conquering hero to deconstruct everything which had been built and accomplished by Israel and prevent all which was still to be accomplished by Israel. Oslo is now a sad fact of history and unchangeable. The Second and Stabbing Intifadas are two more sad facts of history which are not going to be easily erased. But as much as these events tore great wounds in the Israeli society and destroyed lives, we would rather not count, and been the cause of too many funerals on all sides; there is no longer reason to continue with this farce, this charade, this war by peace process. Israeli governments had every reason to end this at its infancy and at every painful growing step inbetween and must finally put this monster in its grave. Jews have born the brunt of the damage in deaths and maimed citizens. Arabs have born an unintended damage of lost trust, lost opportunity, lost liberties, loss of freedoms and loss of trust by non-Arabs. The casualties from this monster cut across racial, gender, ethnicity and religious grounds and have taken a toll on all. This must end and end immediately.

 

The initial step will be the most difficult, it always is. As every paratrooper learns if they have never jumped before, the hardest part of that first jump is the step off of a perfectly functioning aircraft. That first step is a crucially necessary yet frightening step, as are all first steps as they take us from what we were comfortable with, even if uneasily so, and place us in a new and uncertain future where things are going to need to change. The same will be true in making Israel better and safer for every one of her peoples. The first step in this case comes concerning Mahmoud Abbas and his concert of fellow terror masters. They need to be returned to where they were before Oslo, not necessarily Tunisia, but definitely exiled and persona-non-grata from Israel. Then the remaining leadership of Fatah, the PLO, Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, officers from security forces and everyone who is a known participant in the terror campaign to force the Jews from Israel and replace the Israeli democracy with an Islamic Sharia tyranny will need to be removed. This step will be opposed with force often using the very weapons Israel provided the security personnel. At the start, let it be known that every person, both Jew and Arab and all others will have a simple choice, which side they stand with. One side will be represented by the IDF and Shin Bet security agency and the other by the terrorists and their supporters. Those deciding to stand with Israel should let this be known at their earliest convenience to an IDF soldier or Israeli security personnel and you will be located in a safe place for the hopefully fairly short duration. The leadership is known to Israeli security officials and will be located and sent into exile with their ill gotten gains and can live the remainder of their lives in wealth. Those who decide that they would prefer to go out in a blaze of glory, the IDF is fully capable of providing that blaze, as far as glory, the IDF is not in the glory business, just the saving of innocents to the best of their ability.

 

Terrorism is Light’s Out

 

After the leadership has been removed, the remainder will be more at ease and able to decide their own future. This offer will be made to all residing between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea, and it will be a one time offer for each to choose including those who are Jews as we would not desire to leave out any from even amongst our own who have questionable loyalty. For Israelis, it will be assumed that you are loyal to Israel and if this is a problem for you, it would be to your advantage to avail yourself of one of the deals which places you outside Israel; otherwise, it will be assumed that you have accepted the loyalty oath. For those residing in Palestinian Arab regions, if you desire to remain within the borders of Israel (River to the Sea), then you will be required to sign a loyalty oath where you are simply promising to never take up arms against the country of Israel nor intentionally harm those residing within her borders. What are the other alternatives should you decide not to sign such an oath? They are very simple. There will be an offer to buy your properties for which you can prove ownership and then you can leave Israel never to return. It is likely that there will be a sliding scale bonus which is intended to make any relocation more easily accomplished. This relocation bonus will start at some set figure and then each month that passes it will be reduced by ten percent and after the tenth month will no longer be available, so if you are leaving, haste is to you own interests. After a year has passed from the completion of removal of the leadership and known terror planners, bomb makers, rocket makers, terror trainers and all the other people deeply entrenched in the terror trade, those remaining who have not signed the loyalty oath will be found and forced into exile as they will be assumed to be sympathetic to the causes of terror and intend to destroy the Jewish state. From this point forward, any act of terror will result in exile with no opportunity for return for the terrorist and every last person who aided the terror. Those who decide that Israel was joking about permanent exile and return into the borders, they will be arrested and their penalty will be simple, first offense will result in exile and second offense will have a sentence of life imprisonment or the death penalty. The latter will be more likely if the return was with the intent of causing an insurrection or for the commission or coordination of acts of terror.

 

We can propose what we view as the best hope and opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs as have a number of other editorialists and political scientists, and each of our plans will give a disparate group an idea of how their area would best be served, and their situations may change while they adjust, but they all have the same shortcoming, they are not able to be implemented as long as Mahmoud Abbas has the heaviest and largest group of guns and the thugs to use them. Nobody is going to step forward to take any of these opportunities is doing so will only get them dead. That is where Israel will need to step up to the plate and remove the threats hanging over these people’s heads and give them one final shot at freedom and the management of their own lives. They will also need to understand that this is their last and final shot at living real, ordinary lives and that it is going to take all of them working to realize a true and tangible, honest and viable peace with Israel or they will force Israel’s hands, and those hands have even more and bigger guns than Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all the other terror and criminal gangs combined. Israel can and should offer the Palestinian Arabs willing to sign an agreement where they will no longer wage a war of any kind against Israel in exchange for the managing of their own lives freely and with the rights they are willing to grab. If the Palestinian Arabs cannot take over their own lives and allow criminals or terrorists to take over once again, then they will have spoken for their area and will face the appropriate action in return. Mess up this opportunity and lose your opportunity to remain within the borders of Israeli provided protection and the result is you will likely find yourself in Jordan if lucky and Syria if not or potentially anywhere inbetween where somebody is willing to take you. But this final opportunity will obviously not be won independently by the Palestinian Arabs without Israel first removing the threats from around their collective necks. Initially, this will be peace at the end of a collection of IDF bayonets as Israel provides the initial fertile ground for the Palestinian Arabs to show their true colors.

 

Israel will need to remove the PLO, Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and everyone else who refuses to permit the Palestinian Arabs their right to freely choose their new leaders for possibly the first and definitively their last time. Either they choose leadership capable and willing to work with and reside peaceably under an Israel security umbrella which will keep out the rain but also not permit threats of any kind from within the Palestinian Arab population. The people of Gaza were presumably given an opportunity to build the perfect Palestinian Arab society and they did this by throwing off the Palestinian Authority and PLO largely and for the main reason that they were not killing Israelis fast enough and they chose Hamas to lead them. Well, this time there will be no PLO, no Hamas, no Islamic Jihad, no Islamic State, no Iran and nothing to prevent the Palestinian Arabs willing to sign a loyalty oath declaring their intention to live at peace with Israel from choosing leadership and a form of self-governance which will work for their benefit and pose no threat to Israel. Of course, some groups of Palestinian Arabs will choose to continue the old habits under new leadership. The first ones caught heading in this direction will hopefully serve as warning to how this will end for any others contemplating their own extinction event. Israel has run out of patience with those dead-set on attempting to murder every Israeli and some even every Jew in the world. This is the one thing which will be evidenced as the quick way to lose everything. This will be the final opportunity to have self governance and for remaining within these walls. Any attempts at choosing a terror based governance or other governance evil in its outcome will result in the elimination of that group of Palestinian Arabs as they will be deported. Any group deciding to elect Barghouti or similar anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or anti-Semitic leadership will find themselves under close scrutiny and if some form of general insurrection is their true choice, well, that will be their last lost hope for independent and a free existence. Israel should be prepared for anywhere up to half of the disparate Palestinian Arab choices to result in a simple continuation of the same embezzlement and rampant violence forcing the Israelis to act immediately to counter such a choice from initiating a more dangerous and well armed core group. Any such group should be treated as the pariah as they have earned to be treated. Israel is under no real suffocation and need not permit any rejectionist groups from operating within her borders and posing a danger to her people. Any township, city or other entity resulting within the Palestinian Arab leadership inimical to Israeli interests will be removed along with those who support them. Should this result in the exile of the entirety of the Palestinian Arab population, then that will just have to be the result with which the world will simply have to adjust, even the European Union. If the European Union truly cares so deeply for the Palestinian Arabs, then perhaps this could be the place to put those whose final choice was to one last time choose those who would work to destroy Israel.

 

There have been ample opportunities for the Palestinian Arabs to find a suitable form of governance which could provide them with the means for productive lives posing no threats to Israel. Even so, this will necessarily be their final shot at a decent life of self-respect, self-reliance and peaceful coexistence with Israel. Choose poorly and one can expect consequences as the Palestinian Arabs will not be provided any more opportunity to choose wisely, carefully and fully cognizant of what a poor choice will bring upon them. Still, we figure at least one third will still choose leaders who desire to bring Jihad against Israelis before even thinking of their responsibility to govern the people for whose lives they are responsible. These will be sent to join the initial wave who voluntarily decided to leave. There will not be any further games or failures of leadership as the safety and opportunity to live full and productive lives is also the right of every Israeli. Far too many Israeli lives have been lost or shattered being sacrificed for the sake of Palestinian Arab freedoms. It is far beyond time that Israel acted solely for the benefit of her citizens and made a future for their children free from the fear, war, terrorism and the other pestilence which have plagued Israeli society as they wore the albatross of the Palestinian terrorist debacles around their necks. Israel is and always has been and will be a beacon of life and opportunity and must no longer suffer these defeatist attitudes. This may be the last time Israel will have the backing of the White House in taking such steps to bring an end to what has been the most intractable problem of the last hundred years. None of this means that Israel must act rashly or vindictively out of desires for revenge. This is an opportunity to give doing the most for the Palestinian Arabs this final time before simply cutting them out no longer permitting them the free range to harm Israeli citizens. Israel need not suffer any more deaths, kidnappings or even holding the bodies stolen from the field of battle as hostages. The time to push a new dynamic is long overdo and if Israel misses this golden opportunity, she very well may never see another such opportunity come her way for the foreseeable future. Israel no longer has any time to count her blessings and must realize they need to strike while the opportunity is available with a guaranteed veto of any Security Council sanctions. Israel, if required, must act in her highest interests which must be her own people and especially her children. Israel must suffer no further Fogel family slaughters or Salomon family slaughters who were assaulted at their Shabbat evening dinner meal, deaths of infants such as Adel Biton or Chaya Zisel Braun’s whose family were struck as part of a vehicular ramming attack at a Jerusalem light rail disembarking point (see video below), no further Park Hotel Massacres where people, largely older people, siting for a Passover Seder were gunned down where they sat or any other of the nearly uncountable terrorist attacks which have plagued the Israeli people since this war against the Jewish People began around 630 A.D. in Medina, Saudi Arabia. Israel need not lose another soldier to terror and its ramifications.

 

 

This must, by necessity, be the absolute final opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs to get their governance correct. Should they at any point going forward allow terrorists to take over their government, then they will have earned Israel sending their entire village, city or area into exile. It is well past time for Israel to simply say, ‘Enough,’ to all the terrorism and violence. There is no other viable option than to pacify the Palestinian Arab population by destroying their ability to do harm as well as removing those communities which pose a threat. This can be accomplished by new governance but should they choose to remain ruled by terrorist masters, then they will be ruling themselves from outside of Israel where such actions would be able to be considered an act of war, and aggression from a foreign nation upon Israel. If it becomes necessary that Israel take the position and the world be damned, then such need be the case. Anyway one slices this cake, it is the last opportunity for a group which has been granted several such opportunities and never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. No more.
