Every Day More About Israel

 

Giulio Meotti in his recent article nailed one side of the problem with the reporting about Israel. He revealed the lack of balance and overgeneralization about some of the articles reported on by the world media and how everything which did not fit the Israel is a monster narrative despite being more indicative of the real Israel were ignored. His examples need to be mentioned by us as well but his article is worth reading itself. The world media, especially in Europe, North America and the rest of the information-starved world reported a breathtaking headline which read something like, ‘El Al Pilots Refuse to Fly Deported African Asylum Seekers’ or ‘El-Al Pilots to Boycott Repatriation of African Asylum Seekers.’ There are some seriously misleading parts in both of these headlines and the articles do little to clear up the misinformation. The headlines make it appear that the six-hundred and some El Al pilots held a meeting and overwhelmingly if not unanimously decided they would refuse any order to deport those that Israel is making arrangements to repatriate with their home nation or a guest nation willing to accept them. That never happened and any diligent research finds that the El Al pilots never met, voted or decided anything of the sort. The truth is that three El Al pilots decided upon their own volition to protest and come out openly refusing to pilot any such flight. Three pilots out of six-hundred-plus pilots would not even warrant a story if it were any other major carrier. But there is even more misinformation as Israel is not deporting asylum seekers but instead is deporting illegal infiltrators who came to Israel seeking jobs. They are not political or any other type of asylum candidates but are merely illegal infiltrators. Further they are being given a period of time to accept a monetary incentive to be relocated either to their native homeland or one of the nations willing to take them as legal immigrants. So the only words in the headlines not misrepresenting the facts are, well, none of them it appears.

 

Another story which is even more damning is the story of the letter presumably written by and signed by sixty-three Israeli high school students who are refusing to serve in the army of the occupation. The letter was not likely written by the students whom, it turns out, were paid to refuse IDF military service by an extreme leftist NGO and which is suspected of having written the letter. Headlines referred to the sixty-three students as ‘Over Sixty Students’ and ‘Dozens of Students’ and other open-ended descriptions. The titles also used politically charged words such as ‘occupation’ and ‘Oppression’ of Palestinians’ maximizing their presumed relevance. The articles repeated the open descriptions of the number with at least one referring obliquely to the actual number while leaving the final number open to change in the future. What was never mentioned was another letter from another groups of high school seniors responding with a counter-letter to that of the sixty-three students, this group numbering six-hundred-fifty. Also omitted was the fact that the IDF handles over seven-thousand new recruits into the ranks of the army. The sixty-three young men’s number pales when compared to the six-hundred-fifty who immediately responded within thirty-six hours of the initial articles in Israeli media, yes the leftist Israeli media is just as horrific if not worse, and completely eclipsed by the seven-thousand plus draftees enlisted yearly. But the sixty-three were what fit the narrative of even the Israeli youth are disenchanted with the awful treatment of the Palestinian Arabs. The first casualty is truth when reports are about Israel in large areas of the media of the West and the remainder of the world.

 

There has apparently been a story about rabbis who have advised Israelis to give hope to the refugees and to hide the illegal infiltrators in their homes and care for them so as to defeat their deportation. What might have been important to point out was the fact that these rabbis were not Israelis but actually leftist nonconforming rabbis in the United States. They are a subset of the rabbis who also are fighting President Trump deporting illegal immigrants in the United States though none has taken in illegal immigrants into their homes just as they are advising Israelis. So they are demanding actions they themselves are unwilling to perform, typical leftist actions, demanding of others that which they are unwilling to perform. The rabbi authoring the article calling for the taking the illegal infiltrators into their own homes by Israelis have also compared doing such as the same as was provided “as in the story of Anne Frank.” There are a few more equally shocking points included in this story from the article by Giulio Meotti.

 

So, let us move on further on this apparent sickness from which many of the leftist media suffer when it comes to reporting about Israel. One thing we have noted is that reality and truth are the first two casualties in these stories. Additionally, their slants are often so twisted and skewed that it becomes beyond impossible to follow any logic or good reason in the reporting. Often the slanting and language are used so as to disguise any merit which might be due Israel and her people unless her people are actively opposing their nation. This became evident the evening after Vice President Mike Pence spoke to a very receptive Knesset, the Israeli parliament. Vice President Pence in the coverage apparently was met with wild and rude behavior as Knesset Ministers screamed epithets and obscenities at him and he was received raucously. Many of the news clips showed the initial confrontation by Arab and leftist members of the Knesset who were quickly removed from the Knesset assembly and Vice President Pence then proceeded to give his speech without further disruption. The Vice President was well received and there were a number of standing ovations despite the running as if on a loop the initial disgraceful actions of a minority of the Knesset Ministers. The only thing which we did not see was reporting that ‘numbers of Knesset Ministers object to Vice President Pence and disrupt speech,’ which is a good thing as that would have been completely false. The protesters had their two and a half minutes as they were herded out of the plenum at the outset of Vice President Pence entering the Knesset. Their removal was so efficient that they did not even delay Vice President Pence speaking and he was able to give his speech in its entirety.

 

Another staple of reporting about Israel is the constant referencing as to how actions by Israeli officials will affect the prospects for peace. The same is seldom performed regarding Arabs and their actions and words. If there is any question about the peace process, it is always what effect it will have and what will Israel be required to do to repair any perceived damages even if they did not effect the changes in question. Probably the most glaring of recent examples has been the reaction to President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and starting the motions to move the embassy to Jerusalem. The immediate reaction was how it was going to make finding a peaceful settlement impossible as it removed the opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs to have their capital also be Jerusalem, albeit, Eastern Jerusalem. Never mind that anybody who read the speech by President Trump knows full well that he will be placing the new United States embassy in Western Jerusalem and eastern Jerusalem was left pretty much unchanged as long as the two parties, the Arabs and Israel, would so agree. As far as the so-called peace-process was concerned, absolutely nothing changed, only the perception of the world was altered. President Trump specifically stated as much towards the end of his speech where he pointed out that his administration was willing to accept anything the two sides willingly accepted. He specifically included any partitioning of Jerusalem within a future peace proposal. Still, much of the commentary we heard was how President Trump had destroyed any hope for a “two-State solution” and how this irreparably damaged Israel. The fact that Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him had both through action and word denied any willingness to accept a Jewish state at all under any borders and under any size was also ignored completely in the commentary of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as having been the capital city of Israel for many thousands of years.

 

The media is consistent in their hounding the Israelis demanding they make yet more sacrifices for peace while never making such demands of the Arab side. Israel is always the one who is in the wrong while the Arabs seldom can do anything which hurts the chances for peace. When the Arabs break out in violence the media always is there to explain exactly what happened and how Israel committed some horrible offence to which the Arabs are reacting so completely and understandably normally. Never mind that nowhere are there other peoples who react similarly to the Palestinian Arabs or even the majority of Arabs residing in the area surrounding Israel. As we have noted previously, even when Israel reaches their limit and responds to Hamas firing hundreds of rockets per day over the border at Israeli towns and cities, the media coverage starts with the Israeli response and only towards the middle or end of the article is there any mention of the reason and provocation by Hamas. Even then, they do not note that it took weeks of ever-increasing rocket firing and surpassing often over five-hundred rockets per day before Israel responds. The coverage after this is even worse than the attempt to create a feeling that Israel fired first instead of responding to intolerable assaults on its people and property. They then start a comparison of numbers of fatalities and injuries without mentioning the amount of capital Israel invests in protecting their civilians including shelters throughout the country and the Iron Dome interceptor system which is capable of intercepting virtually any medium and even short range projectiles while Hamas places their rocket launchers amongst their population even surrounding them with children in attempts to maximize civilian casualties and use human shields when fighting the IDF. They have even used United Nations building as proximity for a mortar rocket launching tube as shown in the France-24 picture below. When Israel takes out these launchers, damage to the neighboring structures is inevitable, especially when one considers damages from secondary explosions of the armaments creating a larger sphere of destruction. For example, if Israel were to have struck this position and damaged the United Nations building less than thirty meters from the launcher, then the United Nations and the media would go into a frenzy about Israel striking United Nations property. Additionally, the fact that UNRWA schools have been utilized for rocket cache storage making them legitimate targets but in the aftermath of such a strike the world would only hear about how Israel targets UNWRA schools with no mention of Hamas storing weapons inside them.

The latest attack against Israel by NGO’s, the European Union, numerous European governments and Human Rights activists demand that any illegal migrant who enters Israel must be treated as a refugee and granted the right to make Israel home. The argument they make sounds awfully similar to Israel has a far better economy than the surrounding nations and virtually anywhere throughout Africa, thus these migrants would have a better life in Israel. Additionally, since Israel is not likely to execute these migrants simply for crossing their border illegally and is planning to deport them, they must be prevented from doing so as it would affect these unfortunate migrants negatively. We will talk on this much deeper in the near future. Basically, choose any action taken by normal nations, and when Israel attempts to do the same it becomes instant international scandal and the worst Human Rights violation in history which must be corrected by a host of busybodies. The media worldwide is urgently gathered, the world’s NGO’s go into overdrive, governments hold emergency sessions with the United Nations taking notice and all of this causes a hubbub all out of proportion; but this is Israel and despite its diminutive size, Israel is the most important problem the world cannot seem to solve.

Abbas Going on Anti-Trump Tour

 

Mahmoud Abbas has a whole new reason that every world leader needs to recognize Palestine, preferably with Jerusalem as its capital city, because doing that is just so in your face Trump. He will be heading to the European Union (EU) Foreign Policy Ministers’ monthly meeting and starting with the top Foreign Policy Minister, Federica Mogherini, following up with the other twenty-eight Foreign Ministers on Monday. Riad al-Malki, the PA official in charge of foreign affairs, said Abbas will tell the EU, “Since Trump’s decision has altered the rules of the game, he expects the European foreign ministers to come forward and collectively recognize the state of Palestine as a way to respond back to Trump’s decision.” Wow, now that takes chutzpah! Now Mahmoud Abbas is not only declaring that the United States is disqualified from moderating anything of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, but is now inviting the EU and member states to replace the United States as the moderator and to do so they will qualify for this honor if, and only if, they recognize the new Arab State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital. It is still unclear whether he means Eastern Jerusalem or all of Jerusalem which he has claimed before. Abbas elaborated on his theme from last week’s Islamic Conference Organization emergency meeting in Istanbul stating, “We have to take legal, political and diplomatic measures. The US has chosen not to be a mediator for the peace process. We reject it as mediator. The US is with Israel and supports and backs it.” Abbas added that, “Every Monday we will join another twenty-two or thirty organizations. There are five-hundred-twenty-two organizations, and we have the right to be members of them. Injustice has been committed against us, and the peak of the injustice is the US declaration that united Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.” What our benighted ruler of the Palestinian Authority (PA), PLO and Fatah very intentionally left out was the fact that President Trump’s declaration refers only to Jerusalem and specifies that its borders are to be determined in negotiations. Technically speaking, President Trump’s declaration was no different than the Russian recognition by Putin of West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

 

Israeli Channel 10 News reported on Sunday that Slovenia is expected to recognize the State of Palestine as a response to President Trump declaration of Jerusalem, plus there were reports that three other European nations, Luxembourg, Ireland and Belgium. The Foreign Minister of Luxembourg several days ago called for the recognition of Palestine, in an effort to persuade France to take the lead of a group of European countries. A number of European nations have recognized the State of Palestine in largely symbolic moves. This anti-Trump tour by Abbas actually may have found the one chord which will reverberate in Europe, especially those with leftist governances which hate President Trump more than they desire to accept reason. We have seen many examples of such overreaching hatred of Donald Trump daily in social media posts, a hatred which apparently does not weaken with time. Mahmoud Abbas is working this angle as his former argument that the Jews, Israel, is the central cause of the wars, chaos, terrorism and everything else going wrong in the world thus if only the world would recognize that Israel must be replaced with Palestine such that the world will be corrected. If only these lands, which are an Islamic Waqf, meaning that it had once been conquered by Islamic forces and thus must never be ruled by any other, were returned to Arab Islamic rule with Mahmoud Abbas as its caring and compassionate ruler, then all would be right with the world. Well, almost everything as there is also the matter of that other Islamic Waqf of Lands known to most of us as Spain. Islamic leadership has never forgiven the Christians of Spain for their expulsion in 1492 and claim that Andalusia must be reinstated and Sharia, Islamic Law, must be restored. But now Mahmoud Abbas can use both arguments and play of the many Europeans who, largely secretly, hold anti-Semitic beliefs and feelings and now add to their anti-Trump dispositions to the pot and stir it well. Abbas has come to tell them he has a new idea where he intends to “See no Evil, Hear no Evil and Unleash His Evil.”

 

Abbas’s Promise to “See no Evil, Hear no Evil And Unleash His Evil.”

Abbas’s Promise to “See no Evil, Hear no Evil
And Unleash His Evil.”

 

He knows that his time is short and that once he has accomplished his state that if he establishes this state without making it demilitarized and allowing the Israeli Defense Forces and other security groups to guard his domain for them, then without the Israeli overview, Hamas will remove him and take his life in a mere matter of weeks if not days. Abbas had best remember the lessons of Gaza and how merciless Hamas was against their own brothers simply for the sake of power. The real problem is the reality should any form of Arab nationhood beyond being granted a semi-autonomous region under Israeli domain much as they actually have currently. What the world appears to be missing is the reality that the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria already are apart from Israel outside of security agreements and live under the laws and rules made by their elected legislative governance. The world has always simply blindly accepted Mahmoud Abbas description that the Palestinian Arabs have been denied the right to vote since 2005 and that this is the result of Israeli perfidy. The problem is that the reason there has been no election since is because Mahmoud Abbas has refused to allow elections. The last election came when Israel turned all of Gaza over to the PA. In this election, Hamas won with by a healthy margin. Mahmoud Abbas having Fatah lose the election for the Parliament made his rule difficult. The conflict for control went on until Hamas took complete control over Gaza leaving the fortunate Fatah and Abbas supporters fleeing to Judea and Samaria. Then Abbas expelled as many Hamas followers that the PA knew about leaving the Hamas part of the legislature ruling Gaza making it a no-Fatah-zone and the PA ruled in Judea and Samaria evicting all Hamas and Islamic Jihad members and Abbas’s Fatah Party ruling there. Israel does not rule over any of the Palestinian Arab populations. So, the Palestinian Arabs have two separate governments with one, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, ruling Gaza and the PA under the Fatah Party ruling in Judea and Samaria. The PA rules Area A and selected areas of Area B and Israel rules Area C all according to the Oslo Accords. As both governances, Gaza and the PA, have devolved into dictatorships both on occasion actually having their parts of the Legislature hold a meeting, usually as part of a photo opportunity and a way of pretending that they have any normative governance. These shows are used to blame Israel for preventing their actual rule or to make believe they have kept a promise such as altering their Charter from stating their intention to completely destroy Israel and kill every single Jew in the process. This coming show is no different from any farce put on by the PA. Unfortunately, this new ploy may just work better than their previous attempts to destroy Israel. There is one saving grace; Mahmoud Abbas has guaranteed the Arabs he rules that he will only accept the complete destruction of the Zionist Entity, or Israel. As even with all the European recognition in the world is not going to destroy Israel thus Abbas will reject any agreement offered no matter how generous, as he has already proven. It is so odd that the person who is often the saving grace for Israel ends up being Mahmoud Abbas. How ridiculous does that sound? We agree.

Why Palestinian Arabs Will Never Accept a State

 

There are an almost countless number of reasons for why but perhaps just the top few is all which will be required to set the record straight and perhaps show people the reality which they have thus far failed to seek out. We are not trying to claim that people are blind, willfully or otherwise, simply that people are busy individuals and will often take the most immediate explanation set before them, especially if it is one echoed endlessly by those supporting one side with funds to soak media with their version, one we call out as lies. We promise that we are not going to go into the history of who came first or who conquered whom and all the other usual Zionistic arguments, we will use modern real life reasons. These are reasons which can be recognized by studying the history of negotiations and statements by Palestinian Arab leaders. What it breaks down to in the end is that the Palestinian Arab leadership has a singular reason for their being, and it has nothing to do with an Arab state, it has to do with the destruction of the Jewish State. That is why they spent over 1.2 billion shekels promoting terrorism in 2017.

 

We could begin with the heart of the matter, but what fun would that be. So instead, we will begin with Hamas. The Hamas Charter is written as are all Islamic documents for claim of lands, from the perspective that the history of the area begins with their conquest and before that the lands were inhabited by beings who are inconsequential. Islamic history is written from a perspective where all history expanded with Islamic conquest and those who existed before have no relevance. There was no Persian Empire, no Egyptian Empire, no Byzantine Empire, no Roman Empire, no Indian Civilization, no Berber Lands, nothing came before Islam. That is extremely convenient if your plan is to inevitably conquer the entire world, convert every person in it to your newly formed faith, execute all who show the slightest sign of resistance or insincerity, impress strict oppressive rules making all other forms of religion or governance illegal under penalty of death and, with any hope and good fortune, in some distant future allow for expansion of knowledge beyond the limitations of the only permitted knowledge being that which is within the Quran. Strict Islamic rule as Hamas would impose would not permit science beyond the development of weaponry to be used for further conquest. With history starting with the Islamic conquest of the Holy Lands, there can be no other civilization or peoples who came before them and thus only they have the rightful ownership of the Holy Lands. That means that before the year of 634 on the Gregorian Calendar, which corresponds to the year 13 on the Hijri Islamic Calendar, there were no inhabitants in the lands of the Holy Lands. This is very interesting as the Islamic faith claim the Jesus was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim, Avraham was a Muslim, Noah was a Muslim as well as Adam and Eve being Muslims, yet the Holy Lands did not exist before the year 634. If you demand a clarification on this discrepancy, the answer you get is that though there were some more advanced and developed individuals such as the above all of which recognized the Quran as the literal word of Allah and that Allah was the One responsible for all creation and the rest of humanity were of little consequence as they either were idolaters or they followed some corrupted form of the Quran. The Torah of Judaism and both the Old Testament and New Testament recognized as such by Christians are all corrupted and fraudulent versions of the Quran and the Quran was required because all others had lost their way and varied of the straight and defined path defined by the Quran. Thus, despite Moses having led the Israelites (Jews) to the Promised Lands, there was no history of consequence before the arrival of the Islamic invaders. Below is a map of the paths taken by the Islamic forces when conquering the Holy Lands.

 

Initial Islamic Conquest of Levant and Israel

This is why the Palestinian Arabs claim that the Jews never had a nation where Israel stands today, that there was never any Temple of Solomon or Second Temple. But there are other statements in the Quran which throw this idea into more of a conflicted view and that the Jews are to inherit the Holy Lands. One such reference of the promise or grant of the Land to the Israelites found in the Qur’ān is, “We said then unto the Israelites: ‘Dwell in the Land.’” (wa-qulnā min ba‘dihī li-Banī Isrā’īla ’skunu ’l-arḍ) This promise comes towards the end of Chapter Seventeen. Much more research into the Quranic verses which denote the Jews prophesy to live in the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea can be read here. There is one difficulty with these promises made in the Quran; they were all parts of the Mecca Quran and not the Medina Quran. The importance can be read about in a brief description of the differences and reasons for there apparently being two separate and quite contradictory set of writings and why for outsiders it is difficult to understand which parts of the Quran are still applicable and which have been abrogated, replaced. Because the references to the Jewish homeland coming from the Mecca version of the Quran, many Muslims believe that the only writings which matter are the Medina verses of the Quran believing that the entirety of the Mecca Quran were abrogated, not just those which were contradictory.

 

The Quran states in verse 2:106, “Whatever verse we abrogate or cause it to be forgotten, we bring a better verse than it or like it,” and in verse 16:101 the Quran states, “And if we exchange one verse in a place of another verse, and Allah knows what he sent down.” Abrogations were written into the understanding and commentaries on the Quran by Ibn Kathir. The abrogation has become a tool used by Muslims to reject anything they find inconvenient from the Quran, especially if the verse in question can be relegated to have been part of the initial writings of the Mecca Quran. Hamas and much of the Arab and Muslim worlds have decided that in order to speed the coming of their messiah, the Mahdi, they know tradition is they must fight the Jews and eradicate them first. This is another reason they fight against Israel existing as the largest concentration of Jews residing in a nation are in Israel as Israel has surpassed the United States in number of Jews. They also know that should Israel be defeated, the remainder of the Jews will largely cease to exist within a few generations. As far as destroying Israel, the Muslims believe all they need do is destroy Zionism as once Zionism dies, then the Jews in Israel will be forced to simply have a western democracy with all the weaknesses. Once Israel is made into simply a democracy, then the Palestinian Arabs can simply demand to be allowed to join melting everyone into a one state solution. Then, by using a simple demand for their relatives to join them in family unification, they can become the majority. Once the Arab Muslims have a majority, or possibly before, then, they can vote Israel into becoming an Islamic state and then force the Jews to convert, leave or die. That would be the end of the Jewish State. This is why the Palestinian Arabs were upset about President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital.

 

These are the reasons beyond simply that the Muslims also believe that any lands once conquered by Islam must never be permitted to fall from Islamic rule. The other reasons above are just additional justifications for why the Jews have no claim to the land of Israel. This is what is behind every claim the Palestinian Arabs make, be they Hamas, Islamic Jihad or the Palestinian Authority (PA) which is nothing more than the PLO disguised as a peace partner. There is no design for the making of a Palestinian Arab state, just plans for the destruction of Israel. The PA never modified their charter which they had promised President Clinton and was verified presumably by letters and a witnessed vote where the witness did not speak Arabic and thus was unaware that the vote was to appoint a committee to consider whether or not to amend the charter, a committee which was never formed. The end is the charter remains unchanged from its 1964 writing when Jordan held the Shomron and Egypt held Gaza and the “Palestine” they were to liberate was all of Israel inside the Green Line. Their idea back in 1964 was to conquer all of Israel and turn it over to Jordan. When the Arabs held the areas they today claim to desire their state, there was no clamoring for a new state called Palestine. The demand for a state began in 1967 around the middle of the second week of June when Israel liberated the lands occupied by Jordan after Jordan entered the Six Day War on the second day of the war believing the Egyptian and Syrian claims of victories and closing on Tel Aviv and Jordan wanted in on the destruction of Israel. They found out that the Egyptians and Syrians were not exactly winning and neither did Jordan.

 

Yes, Israel was occupying the lands they held west of the Jordan River and that land always was to be part of Israel. None of that matters to the Palestinians; they are the bludgeon which the Muslim world uses to end the Jewish State. Hamas desires a little more and the cleansing of the Jews from the planet once they have destroyed Israel. This is another reason that Israel must continue to exist as without Israel the Jews would face a threat as anti-Semitism grows as it has in Europe and without Israel the Jews would again have nowhere for them to run. That is but one reason for the continued existence of Israel but there are far more pertinent reasons of which the strongest of all is the promise by Hashem to return the Jewish People to their lands in the Middle East and even the date of 1948 was predicted by the Prophets way back over two-thousand years ago. The reality became evident even to President William Jefferson Clinton during the Camp David negotiations and everything that followed and he was willing to tell the media so when he related how Arafat simply would reject every offer and never offer a counter proposal and simply demanded that Israel offer more. When Israel, Ehud Barak, came back with an offer even Clinton could hardly believe was being offered, all Arafat did was refuse, return to Ramallah and a few months later release the Second Intifada. That has been the one constant from Yasser Arafat to Mahmoud Abbas and will continue on to whoever follows Abbas. It will not matter who is the next version of Arafat the one constant will remain, they will say “no” to every offer of a state. The reality is there are only two solutions to the Arab Israeli conflict, either the Arabs destroy Israel or Israel declares sovereignty of all of the Shomron and send any Palestinian with a connection to terrorism from these lands, allow the remainder of Arabs to choose between remaining as resident aliens with no political rights or accept a buy out with a relocation bonus and promise to never return to the lands of Israel.

 

As far as permitting the Palestinian Arabs to become Israeli citizens, if such should ever become something considered viable, the means and qualifiers will need to be determined at that point in time. As for the immediate future, as long as the world desires the destruction of Israel and back anything the Arabs demand, then there will not be a solution. When the Israelis finally do reach the point where they no longer are willing to continue a fruitless pursuit of a settlement which can never be accomplished, then Israel will be required to make a final decision. Either Israel will declare her borders and leave an Arab region beyond without reaching any actual agreement or to annex all the lands which are truly Israeli under International Law and then decide how to treat the Arabs they decide may remain. This will only come to fruition once Israel decides that her own existence and future is far more important than relations with naysayers whose deep-seated desire is to watch the destruction of Israel. We have an idea what will bring this day closer, that day will come once Israel realizes that her existence is more important than being accepted by Europeans or anybody else for that matter. When Israel is ready to consider itself over the rest of the world, then, perhaps, she will finally do exactly what is required to secure her safety, and that includes the entirety of the Shomron allowing the Jordan Valley and Jordan River to be her defendable eastern border. Holding these highlands also permits for long-range radar pickup of incoming aircraft from everywhere east of Israel, as without the Shomron highlands, then eastward radar would be limited not providing sufficient warning of incoming aircraft. That is the last reasoning, military necessities dictating the realities of what can be accepted. The Arab Palestinians are playing for Israel’s destruction, why should Israel play for anything less. Compromise had failed, that is the final reality which need be faced. The other truth is that the far left will never realize the truth and will always claim that by giving and giving peace will come, and they are right, but the peace of the end of Israel should never be an acceptable outcome.
