Israeli Elections Update Three, Future Coalitions

 

The main result of elections is the eventual composition of the governing coalition. There have been rumors claiming, as we did immediately after elections were called, that Bibi Netanyahu will form a coalition with his Likud Party and the left centrist merged Lapid-Gantz Blue White Party. The purpose behind this is to repeat the same mistakes of both Gaza and South Lebanon, except this time it will be the Shomron. Most of the border will fall along the anti-terror barrier dividing Jerusalem once more. We believe that instead of a total partitioning of all of East Jerusalem, the region to be gifted to Mahmoud Abbas will merely include the predominantly Arab neighborhoods with the Jewish Quarter and the entirety of the Temple Mount remaining under Israeli rule and control. There are those who have claimed, as has Naftali Bennett, that this plan was worked out between Bibi Netanyahu and President Trump when they discussed the future of the region after President Trump announced the pulling of American forces from Syria. We cannot validate nor refute these claims but believe they are simply used to add fuel to the fire, so to speak, of Mr. Bennett’s claims. As far as Bibi Netanyahu is concerned, this is the path to a legacy and a Nobel Peace Prize. Unfortunately, should this come to pass, it will almost certainly have even worse results than did the retreat from South Lebanon giving Israel Hezballah and over one-hundred-thousand rockets and missiles pointed at every inch of the nation and the Gaza Disengagement which resulted on Hamas and Islamic Jihad launching rockets over half the nation at will. Both of these borders are now basically controlled by Iran who can yank Israel’s strings at will and from either border, or eventually both borders at once.

There could be a completely different result from the election with the Blue White Party receiving the plurality of mandates and forming a coalition with Labor, Meretz and other left wing parties and anyone else as required to reach the magic number of sixty-one. The wildcard for this proposition are the Arab parties who also have a coalition which will likely get between eight and twelve, possibly as many as fifteen or so, mandates which could make or break any attempt by the Blue White Party to form a ruling coalition. We spoke about the change with Jewish Home and National Union bringing Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) into their electoral list at the urging, more like brow beating, of Bibi Netanyahu in yesterday’s article. We had predicted the result of such a merger and these results are coming true in spades. Rabbi Benny Lau made references against the merger, which is fine as he is an avowed liberal who loathes teachings of Rabbi Meir Kahane (ז״ל), but he made references against fellow Jews which should never be used. Referring to Jews using the terms he utilized is an insult and a disgrace to the memory of millions of Jews and their surviving families. But what about the coming elections, who will win and who will lose, that is the big question.

The elections end results are going to depend heavily on how three parties do and whether or not Bibi Netanyahu desires to go with a right wing government or follow a similar path as his Likud predecessor, Ariel Sharon (ז״ל), who took a large block from Likud and merged with groups from across the political spectrum forming the ill fated Kadima Party and executed the Gaza Disengagement under pressure from President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. This was an epic disaster, and that is an understatement. Before Prime Minister Sharon, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak made a desperate and ill-planned withdrawal from Southern Lebanon leading to Hezballah filling the void left behind and now perched on the northern border as a Sword of Damocles over the entirety of Israel. An interesting aside is that both Ehud Barak and Ariel Sharon were generals in the IDF, which kind of puts a large dent in the argument by Gantz that with him you get the wisdom of four IDF Generals of which many were Chiefs of Staff. With the results of the previous generals, including Chiefs of Staff, we are not sure that advertising having a plethora of generals is all that wise though there are those who believe that nothing could ever go wrong with such people running the nation. We only hope that such is so.

 

Former General Benny Gantz has designs on being Prime Minister which begs the question, where does he stand on such things as the Oslo Accords, a Palestinian State and the Gaza and Lebanon disengagement/withdrawals. Well, wait no longer, as he gave a recent interview since his declaration to form the Resilience Party where he answered these questions on the record telling Yediot Ahronot the following, as reported here.


“The central question is a security question. We need to ensure the State of Israel’s security. Now, we have here a question of interests – and even Bibi [Netanyahu] said this at his Bar-Ilan address [in 2009] – that we don’t want to rule over anyone else. We need to find a way for us not to be governing other people.
“The [Gaza] Disengagement was carried out based on the State of Israel’s policy concerns. All the sides involved got high scores for the ability to not tear the country apart when [the Disengagement] was carried out.
“It was a legal undertaking, which was adopted by the Israeli government and carried out by the IDF and the settlers in a way that was painful, but also good. We need to take the lessons [we learned there] and apply them elsewhere.”

 

His running mate is Yair Lapid, a longtime supporter of forming a Palestinian Arab State within the Shomron, even at the price of having to relocate the Jews residing there. Both he and the general, as well as at least two of the other generals the list presents, have made references to hard choices and difficult but necessary concession and even that if we would just find the right balance and sacrifice lands, then there would be peace. Why we would have peace after retreating to the same borders which had produced terrorism before the Six Day War and the borders which resulted in the Six Day War and expect that they would bring peace and tranquility this time is simply folly. The plans which have been bandied about have an even darker and more adverse side than simply retreating. The repeatedly proffered idea would be to retreat to the anti-terror barrier plus east Jerusalem but allow the IDF to remain in order to prevent terror attacks and to gather intelligence to protect the people of Israel. Now, there will be those who ask what is wrong with such an idea. Well, the main problem is that was tried before in a place called southern Lebanon and it led to serious repercussions. Once Israel retreats behind whatever line which is chosen, that results in Israel surrendering those lands to the Palestinian Arabs and whatever government they choose or end up having over them. We tried the first thing, the disengagement in Gaza, which resulted in three terror wars thus far and who knows what will come in the future. There have been rockets, suicide bombers sent while presumably going for medical treatments, infiltration tunnels, incendiary kites and balloons, colorful balloons with poisoned candy attached, colorful balloons with explosives in the shape or inside toys with contact detonators and who can even guess what will be the next exiting plan by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their masters in Tehran to try and murder Israeli civilians. So by pulling back and granting them lands to make a go of a state, we have repeated Gaza only with lands which overlook Tel Aviv. This means that these lands would no longer be Israeli in any means as compared to now where all the land is by right still belonging to Israel, and giving them a state rules out Israeli ownership. Leaving the IDF or any forces within what is, for all intents and purposes, Palestinian Arab land outside of Israel, the IDF would be an occupying force and this would play well for all those whose lives are thrilled by scourging Israel. The IDF would be facing almost daily attacks either from what would have been terrorists but now could rightfully claim to be freedom fighters attempting to oust a foreign military from their country. The young Israeli soldiers who would die as a result would mount and there would be another set of mothers of the IDF demanding to bring their sons home. Eventually, between domestic demands and foreign pressures, the IDF would be pulled and then there would be an Arab terror state siting overlooking Ben Gurion International Airport with shoulder fired anti-aircraft weapons along with lines of rocket launchers with line-of-sight for targeting downtown central Tel Aviv. The borders would be returned pretty much along the former 1949 armistice lines known as the Green Line. We discussed the differences between the Green Line and the anti-terror barrier here. The map shown at the link depicts the entirety of the security zone and much of the areas colored in blue will be surrendered and the furthest west (left) area is where the border will result being drawn. Such a plan would leave close to three-quarters of a million Jews homeless with over half also losing their place of employment. Further, after the Arabs destroy everything built by Israel, there will be tens of thousands or more Palestinian Arabs without a place of employment. Any plans for allowing the Israeli companies to remain operational and run by the Palestinian Arabs will fail just as the greenhouses in Gaza were destroyed and the pipes and other materials used to build rockets and launchers.

The above image is equally as likely to be the result even should the anti-terror barrier become the border as they are almost indistinguishable, especially since any protest by Arab interests, including Palestinians, which petitioned the Israeli Supreme Court and resulted in a decision for the route to be redrawn to comply with whatever demands were demanded. So, simply replace Green Line with Security Barrier and the rest remains the same as the Arabs will, in either case, hold much of the Judean hills overlooking central Israel and over three-quarters of Israeli infrastructure and about the same percent of the population. The one thing which will become true is that should such a plan be instituted and the Arab Palestinians be given their third nation, with Jordan and Gaza being their first two, soon after the above picture becomes reality and rockets are sent raining down on central Tel Aviv and a couple of the skyscrapers are brought down; the hue and cry from even the most pro-Arab Palestinian leftists will demand that the entirety of the Shomron not only be retaken, but for the Arabs to be pushed from the land and it be cleansed of any Palestinian Arab presence. This is what it will take as when the Gaza Disengagement was taken as a means of giving the Arab Palestinians a chance to prove they could have a viable civilized nation, the Bush administration promised that Israel could just retake Gaza and end the problem. Anybody looking at Gaza today can see how well that idea was implemented, as Gaza remains a terrorist stronghold for Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their Iranian sponsors. The probability is that within the first year after such another horrific disengagement is carried out, then Hamas will either overthrow Abbas or win in a landslide if elections were to be held, which is why Abbas never allows elections as such would throw him from power and his life would be endangered. But somehow, governments seem to never learn from their past mistakes and insist that this time they will do it the right way. When people insist that such is delusion and not logical, they disregard those warnings and will always claim that those claiming it will not work are just too negative and have no faith. When the predictions prove correct, then they claim that you are a racist or fascist and with the echoing media repeating these claims, in time, they become accepted fact and then you can be ignored when they go to try the same failed policies elsewhere. The problem this time is they are taking the two largest errors of the past and rolling them together to make the way they will get it right this time. Sometimes all you can do is shout from the hills and shake your head sadly as those who never seem to know better make the same tired mistakes of the past, and this is true of for too many ideas and concepts which history should have wadded-up and tossed into the trashcan of history. Somehow, bad ideas seem to be repackaged and sold as new every so many years and the youth and the fools gravitate to them as if they will bring in all the promises made the last time are repeated and swallowed whole by the public. Somethings are simply too sad to even rant against, but what else can one do?

Trump’s Pending Peace Plan Will be Dead on Arrival

 

The one guarantee we can give about President Trump’s pending Middle East Arab Israeli peace plan, otherwise known as the ‘Deal of the Century,’ is that it will be based on hopes, prayers and will have a snowballs chance in the Negev at high noon in August of surviving past any forced Israeli concessions. That is the part which scares us half to death, that there will be demands that Israel once more release murderers, give land within the Shomron or possibly build a multi-lane highway between Gaza and the Palestinian regions so that Hamas can make nice with the Palestinian Authority. The promises and hints which have been floated have claimed that there will be parts which both sides will hate and which both sides will love. We can explain this more easily by telling you that what Israel likes they will hate and what Israel hates they will love and demand that Israel meet those conditions and then they might give President Trump their answer. We can also tell President Trump what that answer will be after they pocket whatever Israel would then be forced into allowing, they will claim that Israel did not fully meet the stipulations and will double down hoping that President Trump will give them more presents and once the President tells them they need to now give something, they will turn their backs and start another Intifada. That has been how it has always been ever since the initial Oslo Accords. Every peace plan has been Israel sacrifices and then Israel is sacrificed under a barrage of murderous attacks.

 

The problem is that President Trump will put the Israeli Prime Minister on the spot pointing out that he recognized Jerusalem and moved the American embassy there though he also reserved that East Jerusalem might still have to be gifted to the Palestinian Authority. That might just be the generous gift which President Trump has in his plans when he has said that the Palestinians are next to receive something good. They already have received plenty of presents all at the expense and safety of Israel. Perhaps President Trump might be served by having a heart to heart conversation about what happened when President Clinton was told by Yassir Arafat what terms he would accept from Israel and after he cajoled Prime Minister Ehud Barak to meet everything which Arafat had demanded, good old Yassir, may he rot in…, he simply walked out of the talks without even demanding anything and refused to meet again. I am sure that President Trump would love to hear that story and perhaps it might provide him with some insight as to how the Middle East works. When a leader from an Arab Muslim nation tells you something that you find pleasing and encouraging, you should immediately stop and look into the past dealings and see where the hidden double meaning is and after that look even deeper and find the truth of what was stated. Very often the truth, the reality is the exact opposite of what was stated and the stated intent was only to gain your trust and take something for nothing before pulling the rug from beneath your feet and laughing at the silly Westerner who does not understand anything about how to barter. We just hope President Trump will allow Israel to unleash an offensive to drive the entirety of the Palestinian Arab population beyond the Jordan River and Gaza into the Mediterranean Sea or at least the Sinai Peninsula. The reality is there would be little difference as once they are within Egypt; they will drive them into the Mediterranean Sea.

President Trump, you have likely talked with Abdullah II of Jordan and probably felt the visceral hate he has for Mahmoud Abbas and the entire idea of allowing the Palestinian Arabs to become even an auxiliary part of his kingdom. Perhaps you should look up on the internet, and we will include the link for your viewing ease, Black September which was also the name of the terrorist squad which took the name to honor Arafat when they murdered the Israeli Olympic Team during the Munich Olympics. Just for good measure, we thought we would include a second link just to further explain exactly what kind of people you are attempting to deal with on an honest basis. Just to be frank, there is no means of dealing with Mahmoud Abbas on an honest basis and just slightly more likely with the Hamas leader, Yehiya Sinwar, who is more likely to just tell you from the outset that he wants every Jew in the world dead and then he will be coming for the United States. Why do you think that Hamas has sponsored the riots every day nonstop since March 30 of this year and will very likely ignore Egyptian President Sisi demands for him to at least keep his enraged rioters a distance from the border fence before they spark a response from Israel. He desires an armed confrontation with Israel because he knows that Israel warns the Gazans where they are going to move next and with such information he can tie Gazans up in their homes which will be rigged with explosives and when the IDF soldiers attempt to move them to safety, they will detonate the house. Hamas, in coordination with the United Nations through UNRWA, built a clinic in Gaza which was also the transfer point between a number of their tunnels and they placed explosives inside the walls and when three IDF soldiers entered the clinic, Hamas terrorists detonated the clinic. Just in case you needed a definition of evil incarnate, that is exhibit one.

 

These are the kinds of people with whom you are dealing, and we use the reference people very loosely. The Western mind frame cannot easily understand and digest the extent and depth of the hatred felt by Arabs for all others. They even have difficulty getting along with each other. Perhaps you should read the diary written by T.E. Lawrence While Travelling in Arabia where an insight into the petty little people they were according to his words where he tried to explain to an educated Arab leader how their tribalism would inhibit their ever advancing their civilization. Little has changed since his efforts to bring them together to help the British in World War I. Are there Arabs who are nice people. Yes, and actually Arabs are some of the most hospitable people you could ever meet, individually. It is when they are in groups their attitudes and manners change. Then the only thing which matters is their family honor and they will kill to protect it including killing a daughter who even dates the wrong man. They refer to such as a Honor Killing. We are sure you have heard of such in the News and how it has become a problem in Europe and has occurred in North America. We do not expect that our article would alter your plans, and that is simply too bad. You will be like every Western leader before you who will simply not understand the people with whom you are dealing. There is a reason why Israel will be hard pressed to sacrifice land to the Palestinian Authority, especially land which overlooks Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. When Jordan held what they called the West Bank illegally against International Law, this also might be something nobody has informed you about, but during that time Israelis could not enter the streets which were in direct line of sight from the Jordanian areas as doing so would place them in danger of being shot by the Jordanian snipers who were placed on any high ground overlooking parts of Israeli Jerusalem. Certain Israeli buildings had to have walls built between them and the sniper positions in order to be occupied. Things would be exactly the same if the Palestinian Arabs had lands overlooking Jewish areas. If you ever wish to visit Israel and fly into Ben Gurion International Airport, you do not desire to have the Palestinian Authority holding the land overlooking the airport, especially flying an airplane so obviously marked as a target saying shoot me first. Let’s face it, a 747 which says on it in large letters “United States of America” and painted all nice in bold colors, as someone with a Stinger Missile would be waiting almost salivating at the great opportunity. Should the Palestinians be granted the pre-Six Day War borders, then Tel Aviv would soon have a smoldering ruin where the downtown towers currently stand. That is a reality which Israel must never permit and if we balk at anything you should recommend, it is because Israel is not going to commit suicide for anybody, even you. Please look up the San Remo Conference and realize that Israel already gave away 78% of the British Mandate so the Arabs could have Jordan, and we assume you know this. When they claim they only want 22% and smile approvingly when leaders from Western nations ask, ‘you mean the West Bank and Gaza’ and refuse to say anything further. They do not answer because they mean the 22% of the British Mandate which is Israel, they want everything from, as their protester exclaim, from the River to the Sea. No, Mr. President, we are not being obstinate, we just want to live and be free to realize our twenty-five-hundred-year-old dream, to return to Zion and rebuild our Temple and reunite with our land and with Hashem.

AIPAC Suffers Disoriented Moments

 

Perhaps it was a case of mass dementia or some fast spreading contagion caused derangement. We are unsure what caused so many speakers of repute including Avi Gabbay who leads the Zionist Union and is the Labor Party candidate for Prime Minister who expects to replace Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu. Of course, this is immediately after he is forced to resign over some cigars and champagne which he received as gifts from dinner guests who passed up giving him a nice set of matching glass crystal ashtrays. Then there was newly appointed American Israel Public Affairs Committee CEO Howard Kohr in his coming out appearance he agrees with Gabbay that for peace to be found for Israel, it will require granting the Arabs a new state (see video below) peopled by the citizens of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the fun group who reward terrorists commensurate on the number of Israelis they are able to murder and this payment continues for life. These men honestly believe that rewarding the group of people who pay terrorists for murdering Israelis, try and overthrow governments in almost every nation they find themselves, backed Saddam Hussein in his takeover of Kuwait, invented hijacking aircraft and holding the passengers hostage, invented suicide bombing and invented nearly every single terrorist act which are not spreading to the remainder of the world with their own nations overlooking Tel Aviv and the heart of Israel by using the Green Line* as the border and splitting Jerusalem in half once more. They believe that the United Nations would be able to control the holy spaces which would be within this newly created Arab nation and thus permit universal visitation. Such a nation would be able to look westward from the Judean highlands overlooking the nine mile wide (see map below) waist of Israel seeing downtown Tel Aviv and beyond the Mediterranean Sea and the entirety of the heartland of Israel where three-quarters of Israeli population and economy is located as well as energy production and desalination producing needed water.

 

 

 

The PA uses as one of their plans for the eventual destruction of Israel is to do so in stages. This plan was to take the best offer they are capable of negotiating and appearing to permit peace to break out. Then, after a period of quiet, there would be a massive series of terror attacks followed by demands that if only some more of the occupied lands were ceded to them, then there would be true peace. Once Israel relents and cedes these demanded lands, another period of quiet would be sustained. This quiet would soon be broken leading to the eventual point when they would finally have attained regaining the borders lost by Jordan in the Six Day War. Well, these two men spoke of simply giving all of the lands which had been occupied by Jordan before the Six Day War in one fell swoop. This would give the Palestinian Arabs everything they had once believed would take them years of intermittent periods of quiet and intense terrorism to achieve. This would grant them that view described above of downtown Tel Aviv and direct rocket fire ability where they could adjust their targeting simply by sight. This would result in a terrifying potential scenario where there would be little if any warning to a rocket attack on central Tel Aviv with the largest of buildings in the heart of its business district completely vulnerable. For an idea of what the Arab rocketeers would be able to see from their firing positions in two pictures below depicting their ability to use such a vantage point.

As noted, this was the intent of UNSC Res 2334 which was allowed to pass by President Obama in the closing days of his second term. There are many, ourselves included, that believe this UNSC Resolution, which could have been so completely devastating to the life of Israel, was actually written with the knowledge and final approval of President Obama personally. The UNSC Res 2334 was mostly diluted by President Trump having recognized Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem, an opening ceremony of this fact scheduled for middle of the coming May of 2018. This was the best possible means of showing that there was a new reality in the Middle East with a pro-Israel administration in Washington D.C. and a very strong defender of Israel in American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. Unfortunately, we are also witnessing strong evidence that the Deep State retains near universal control over the State Department which has also suggested that the Two State solution is still alive and well. The State Department also claims the 1967 borders are the panacea for peace in the Middle East claiming that should such a plan be implemented, then all wars including Yemen, Syria, Libya, Nigeria and everywhere where terrorism is a problem will be resolved by the very implementing of peace between Israel and the Arabs. The one saving grace is that the PA has sold their most violent and fanatical professional terrorist that they will accept nothing less than the complete and total destruction of Israel. Settling for anything less, would result very likely in an immediate coup to overthrow the ineffective fools who would accept a peace where Israel remains as the Zionist entity.

Giving the Palestinian Arabs and their PA government their own state is rewarding seventy plus years of terrorism. It also sends the message that terrorism will be rewarded providing you never let up. It will tell Boko Haram, Islamic State, Hezballah, Iran’s IRGC and every other terrorist group in the world to simply stick to their plan until they are given everything they demand. Further, it will be seen as backing for the Quranic verses commanding the followers of Islam to commit to terror as a tactic. Quran 8:12:16 “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” Quran 3:151:6 “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.” Quran 33:26 “And He brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts [so that] a party you killed, and you took captive a party.” Quran 59:2 “It is He who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think they would leave, and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah ; but [the decree of] Allah came upon them from where they had not expected, and He cast terror into their hearts [so] they destroyed their houses by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, O people of vision.” These verses from the Quran will be validated and have renewed meaning. The Islamists who believe that terror is the means by which they will conquer the weak-willed West will take this as a badge of glory and with this victory, they will act with new heart. Terrorism will be vindicated as the weapon to use against the civilized West as if it worked to destroy Israel, it will destroy the other nations just as readily.

 

As we noted in our article yesterday, Leaked “Deal of the Century” Isn’t, the PA will reject even this peace offering by the State Department. They will believe that their terrorism will soon give them all of Israel, as they will drive the Jews from these lands as they did the Byzantines, the Crusaders, and the British. They believe that like those former conquerors that the Jews have no actual attachment to these lands and that the Jews are but colonists placed here to hold the lands as long as they are able and then to flee back to their natural homes. The Arabs honestly believe that the Jews are simply members of a faith like Christians who reside wherever and everywhere with no real attachment to any lands through their religion. They believe their own propaganda that the Jews all came from Poland, Russia, France, Germany, the United States and the rest of Europe and North America. They do not even remember the Jews which were driven from the Arab lands across MENA** and that most of which ended up in Israel and these Jews make up a fair percentage of the Israeli population.

 

The Arabs will need to come to grips with a new reality which is fast approaching where the Jews are no longer welcomed in Europe. These Jews will end up half in Israel and the rest in North America. What will really bring the reality of the Jews and their ancient homelands of Israel will be after the Jews of Canada are forced to move south into the United States which will simply serve to expedite the Jews being forced from the United States. The influx of over three-hundred-fifty-thousand Jews arriving from Canada will result in bringing to an end the welcome for the Jews in the United States. It will take a while but still result in a severe rise in what has thusfar been an undercurrent of anti-Semitism. The current state of anti-Semitism in the United States is well behind that in Europe where much of it has been kept under wraps existing in the shadows and in whispers. The whispers are slowly becoming murmurs which are a step louder and closer to becoming evident within numerous areas of the culture. From there it is a much shorter step which only requires some new strain or change in reality such as one-third of a million Jews appearing on your doorstep from Canada after nearly half-million European Jews already fled to the United States. Such stress will result in steadily ramping friction with imagined slights and actual slights taken with some more invented and soon you have real problems in areas with few Jews, leading shortly to greater problems where the Jewish population is more significant. Eventually, the Jews from the United States will be heading for Israel with the only question is how many will leave comfortably on their own before they start being pressed to leave. Eventually, the remaining Jews will be fleeing leaving most of their belongings behind and there will always be those few who never catch that their welcome has worn out. Many in the United States will take offense at these estimates of what is likely in the near future, but perhaps if they were to read more of the commentary made on articles concerning Israel or the Jews generally and they might see something to alter their perception.

* Green Line is the 1949 Armistice Line which delineated the final position of the front line at the end of the 1948-9 war where six Arab nations attempted to destroy the Jewish State at her birth. The Arab League demanded that this demarcation never be used to imply or actually be utilized as any form of border so as to leave the Israeli borders undefined.
