Return of Permanent Limbo in Israel

 

The Trump opportunity has passed at least for the summer. There was the opportunity for a change in Israel and the standoff with the Arab world. The Israeli hesitation over moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem, specifically the warnings of potential violence which, according to Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, was something Israel was not prepared to face at the time forced President Trump to hesitate and at best postpone any actions on the embassy or possibly totally abandoned, time will tell. President Trump was elected President with a Republican platform which had refused to continue with the two state solution as part of its Middle East policy, a first for United States policy since the Oslo Accords were signed in September of 1993. The Republicans managed to do something which apparently far too many Israeli politicians are unprepared to do, reject the paradigm of the two state solution and accept something entirely separate. President Trump has stated even since taking office that he is ready to accept whatever decision is presentable to the individuals, which guarantees that he is open to almost any solution providing it is a workable solution. Between President Trump’s statements, the appointments made concerning Israel and the Republican platform, anything is potentially acceptable once one takes all of these particulars together and weighs all of the possibilities. Unfortunately it appears that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is not prepared to take any alternative before other issues including but not limited to Iran, Hezballah, Islamic State and the stability of the areas surrounding Israel are more secured and balanced. Netanyahu also is most concerned with the Iranian race to produce nuclear weapons and properly fears their finally becoming nuclear weapons capable, or worse, having tested and produced a nuclear weapons arsenal which would permit them to project power and terrorism throughout the entirety of the Middle East and across North Africa threatening Europe and possibly beyond to include the United States, China and even Russia. None of the current main nuclear weapons powers should consider their position secure as the potential for Iran to commit nuclear terrorism must not be considered as impossible or out of the question as such will be a definitive and dangerous possibility once Iran has produced miniaturized nuclear weaponry, something they are predicted to have the capability to produce within the next decade.

 

Another threat which Israel is facing has ties to Iran as well. Syria is allied with Iran and Hezballah which controls Lebanon under Iranian direction to the point that Hezballah commands the Military of Lebanon using their strength in the war in Syria against the Sunni rebels including the Islamic State. This conflagration which has destroyed much if not almost all of Syrian infrastructure outside of a thin strip along the Mediterranean Sea, particularly Latakia where the Russians have their active port facilities in the Mediterranean Sea. The losses being taken by Iran and Hezballah in the Syrian catastrophic civil hostilities have produced much consternation within their respective publics which is demanding good and understandable reasoning as to why they should continue to support such bloodshed. Thusfar they have not been rewarded with results which show that their involvement is of any worth as Syria is beginning to appear as a killing field where they are being asked to sacrifice for no good reason. There is a building demand that Assad be replaced allowing for an end to a seemingly endless and pointless waste of resources. The one means for making the Syrian war to appear to have an acceptable reason, at least in Lebanon as well as much of Iran and vast numbers of the IRGC and Hezballah soldiers and their families would be an expansion of the war to include a full on war with Israel. Such a war against the Zionist entity would make the efforts in Syria appear to have a payoff which would be understood and well received thus rejuvenating the support for the forces which are fighting in Syria and an excuse for the losses. Such a decision requires for Iran, as it is the Iranian leadership, the Mullahs and the Supreme Leader who decide, to decide to take such a move as they will be the ones providing the majority of the military resources should such a war be initiated. The cost of such a war for Syria would be inconsequential as much of the nation is already in ruins and most of the military supplies would be provided by Iran. On the other hand, for Hezballah such a war would be a double sided sword cutting both ways as Lebanon has not been near as torn asunder as has Syria. Any war with Israel which included Hezballah would also endanger much of the infrastructure south of the Litani River and the length of the Bekaa Valley as well as parts of Beirut as well as potentially the Beirut International Airport should it be utilized by Iran to fly in provisions for Hezballah using the airstrips of this airport.

 

Where losing men and munitions fighting in Syria is growing less and less popular, a war with Israel if it should bring destruction raining down within Lebanon itself could backfire. While it is possible to have Hezballah troops only attack Israel from areas such as across the Golan Heights, this would not guarantee that Israeli responses would only be targeting Hezballah forces in Syria and not their rocket stores and command and control headquarters within Syria. This would be a definite possibility as Hezballah has sufficient stores of rockets and missiles provided by Iran and placed under the noses of UNIFIL forces assigned by the United Nations to prevent exactly that buildup, they failed completely. These rockets pose an existential threat to Israel and should Hezballah forces be fighting Israel, even if just across the Golan Heights, Israel could not permit Hezballah to have the opportunity to choose the point at which to introduce these assets into such a conflict. In any conflict with Hezballah, Israel correctly feels that their first and most important targets are the stores of rockets and missiles, their launching facilities and the command and control nexuses in order to remove this threat from their civilians, their infrastructure and the Israeli Defense Forces. Even with the Arrow systems, the Iron Dome and David’s Sling, the well over one-hundred-thousand rockets and missiles held by Hezballah could be launched in such a manner as to overwhelm the Israeli defenses and thus inflict unacceptable damage. Where Israel has exceptional interception capabilities, no such system is one-hundred percent successful and with the numbers of weapons Hezballah alone has, not even counting the potential from Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian stores, Israel would be hard pressed to rely on interception thus only destruction of these threats before they can be utilized is the only answer.

 

There is another set of reasons which might cause Iran to seek a war with Israel, and these include Russia and the United States. The Iranians would probably desire testing President Trump as well as pressing him to take a stand one way or the other concerning supporting Israel. If Iran can show that President Trump supports Israel against them, they could attempt to portray themselves as leading the fight against the Zionists and use any United States support as proof that President Trump was fighting a war against Islam. They would use all the claims by the left and the United States liberal media who claimed that the immigration restraint against seven terror prone nations which were so labeled by the Obama Administration and simply that classification was used by President Trump for his imposing an immigration hold until proper vetting could be arranged for these nations but Iran could use the media claims of that being President Trump starting a war against Islam. This would be blown into a full-fledged campaign by President Trump and the United States in supporting Israel as simply the next step in Trump’s war on Islam which Iran would claim they and Hezballah were fighting for the entire Muslim world and in the name of the Prophet Mohammad. The Iranians could attempt to persuade some, if not all, the Gulf States to join them in this noble war against the evil Zionist entity and then attempt to pull Turkey’s Erdogan into the war using popular pressure to drag him into a war thus using his own program of using anti-Semitism to raise his own support levels. How much success Iran might have in turning the Islamic world against Israel and the United States could be debated but results would need to wait to be seen. Further, Iran could use such a war with Israel as a means of forcing Russia to take sides thus driving a wedge between Russia and the United States or driving a wedge between the United States and Israel as Trump would have to choose which side to inflame should Russia be forced to support Iran against Israel. This could lead to a whole new proxy war in the Middle East pitting the two powers, Russia and the United States on opposing sides and once again drag much, if not all, of the Arab world into the Russian sphere of influence and heighten the risk of embroiling the entire Middle East in a war even broader in scope than the 1948 War where the Arab League attempted to wipe Israel from the map. Now the idea of wiping Israel from the map is a wholly, or is it holy, Iranian concept. Iran has threatened to open a front against Israel as a means of leading the rest of the Islamic world into a general war with Israel and granting themselves with the title of the great leaders of the new Caliphate which is what they would use as their alliance’s title so as to give it an Islamic rallying cry. Iran has already made some inroads with some of the Gulf States much to the chagrin of the Saudi Royals who used to have an iron grip on these states.

Further reasoning behind Iran taking the lead in a charge to try and bring down Israel is to bring themselves to the fore of the Islamic world and to attempt to sell their brand of Shia Islam as the real bold, brave and action center for all Islam and thus start to turn the Islamic world from Sunni to Shiite. Iran has had this dream to form a crescent of Shia states across the heart of the Middle East, their Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon crescent which was looking good until Syria disintegrated. What Iran needs now is some means by which to force much of the Syrian resistance to come across to their side and thus reestablish their hold on most if not all of Syria. Iran might even try to win the Kurdish to their side by sacrificing a small section of northwestern Iran and northern Iraq along with some of northeastern Syria forming a Kurdish nation state if they will ally and take up Shia Islam. This would sandwich the Sunnis in central Iraq placing them in a very precarious position which just might force many to accept Shia Islam in exchange for protection from Islamic State. This would leave Iran with a smaller set of opponents to their taking the lead as the great power in Islam allowing their reestablishment of the power which once was Persia. With such a success and Russian backing, the Iranians might even be able to really crack the back of Sunni Islam and convert the Muslim Brotherhood over to Shia Islam if Iran would work with them to remove President Sisi in Egypt and place the Muslim Brotherhood back into power in Egypt which could be assisted with pressure from the south using their friendly relations with the Sudan as their wedge. From this they could then take control of the Horn of Africa and complete their vanquishing of their opposition in Yemen and now have Saudi Arabia surrounded. All of this is speculation and highly unlikely but this is also seen by the Mullahs as potentially plausible if only they could gain an upper hand along the Gulf States and win over many in the Islamic world through a war with Israel. The one catch there is that any war with Israel promises to be as short as Israel can possibly make it which would very possibly not turn out so well for Hezballah or Lebanon. The only thing that Iran would not be risking is the infrastructure of Syria. Also, getting Russia to work against Israel is iffy at best as Russia and Israel have already been working in cooperation sharing intelligence and Israel warning the Russians before striking at targets in Syria or near the Syrian Lebanese border in the Bekaa Valley. Add to that the news that the missile shot from the sky by an Israeli Arrow System was a Russian made SA-5 missile proving that the Israeli military technology is everything it is cracked up to be and this should make Putin wary of any plans to go against Israel. Iran would be treading dangerously trying to force such a conflict and may find they could lose Russian assistance in Syria and that Russia might just take Western Syrian coastal cities as their own just as they did the Crimea with one difference, Israel would welcome Russia as their new friend in the region and that would leave Iran weaker for their efforts.

When it comes to the subject of Israel both United States and United Nations are first class Hypocrites. Let us start with the United Nations where Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in a written complaint to the Security Council stating, “I deplore the fact that at least forty-four Palestinians were killed as a result of Israeli actions and at least two-hundred-twenty-seven injured at United Nations premises being used as emergency shelters.” There were a few rather significant details which were probably missed in this one-sided complaint such as the fact that rockets were fired from locations adjacent to or on top of UNRWA facilities or that during Operation Protective Edge three separate schools were found to have caches of rockets that the UNRWA staff allowed Hamas or Islamic Jihad to remove them instead of having them destroyed or turned over to neutral observers in order to allow for them to be removed from storage under the inspection and safe passage added by UNRWA personnel observing such removals. Such actions as permitting the storage of these weapons and then granting their removal to the hostile force which had stored them illegally in these UNRWA schools made UNRWA complicit in this criminal use of their facilities. The fact that one UNRWA health clinic was itself simply nothing more than a trap set with eighty kilograms of explosives which were built into the walls and otherwise it having served as a tunnel entrance was yet another piece of damning evidence of UNRWA complicity. Beneath the clinic were found intersecting tunnels accessible from within but the real criminal act was the detonation of those explosives set into the clinic’s walls during its construction, a construction dome under United Nations supervision where UNRWA provided their trusted employees to oversee the construction who also permitted the instillation of explosives knowing the intent was to kill Israelis in any conflict where they could be drawn to enter the clinic. This was done during Operation Protective Edge when very likely combatants were observed entering the clinic implying tunnel access or other related activity within the clinic. Upon IDF troops entry of the clinic to investigate the explosives were detonated murdering in an UNRWA complicit ambush in conjunction with Hamas of three IDF soldiers; Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion, hy”d; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion, hy”d; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy”d.

 

In related information omitted from the Secretary General’s letter of condemnation was that the deaths of over a dozen innocent Arab residents of Gaza who were being shielded in the United Nations built Shifa Hospital which everyone were so quick to place the blame on Israel proved to have been a misfired Hamas Fajr-5 Iranian-made 100 kg warhead missile which was targeted at Israel which caused the destruction, but that little fact was not considered important to note as the Shifa Hospital is also run by UNRWA. Of course the United States refused to be left out of this story as well as the United Nations during the course of the Israeli operation it was Israel that was criticized by both the United Nations and the United States for attacking UNRWA facilities. After Israeli returned fire using data from targeting given by counter artillery/rocket/missile radar system to provide targeting resolution of the launch sites, which resulted in these schools being within the blast radius of the return fire of targeting of Israeli civilians by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the same expectations of the United Nations and the United States Department of State in condemning Israel for targeting UNRWA schools when in fact Israel was targeting active launch sites which were aimed specifically at Israeli civilian targets. See picture below which illustrates the Radar Trajectory of the barrage launched from within Gaza by either Hamas or Islamic Jihad or other allied with them depicting the strike points for four rockets, including the short round strike on the Shifa Hospital which Israel was blamed by Hamas and Media accepted Hamas talking point unchecked, one falling in the Mediterranean Sea, another short round striking the Shati Refugee Camp and lastly, one running true targeting Ashkelon which was intercepted by the IDF Iron Dome system.

Speaking for the United States Department of State, Jennifer Psaki stated, “The United States is appalled by today’s disgraceful shelling outside an UNRWA school in Rafah sheltering some three-thousand displaced persons, in which at least ten more Palestinian civilians were tragically killed. We once again stress that Israel must do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.” According to Agency France Press (AFP), an IDF spokesperson confirmed it had fired on a target “in the vicinity” of the school. Additionally, the IDF pressed the importance this is being given and the review is ongoing stating, “The IDF targeted three PIJ (Islamic Jihad) terrorists on board a motorcycle in the vicinity of an UNRWA school in Raffia. The IDF is reviewing the consequences of this strike.” According to Ms. Psaki, “The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians. We call for a full and prompt investigation of this incident as well as the recent shelling of other UNRWA schools.” So as not to allow the United Nations be left out and the United States have all the apparent glee in condemning Israel for defending her citizen and valuing their safety primarily while conducting on a war footing, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated, “This madness must stop.” He also demanded that these actions by Israel constitute “yet another gross violation of international humanitarian law.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon continued his assault on Israel demanding, “This attack, along with other breaches of international law, must be swiftly investigated and those responsible held accountable. It is a moral outrage and a criminal act.”

 

But now comes the United Nations report which looked into these seven attacks on United Nations schools in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, the same UNRWA schools in the above situation and every other single shell of artillery or other munitions utilized by Israel in their previously determined criminal act which must not be considered an act of self-defense but a blatant attack which has been established and assumed by this report. The report has been disclosed to Hamas, possibly searching for more damning information be it fabricated or potentially supported by supposition of Israeli intent outside self-defense despite evidence to the contrary. Hamas’s warm acceptance of the report is sufficiently telling and it being a United Nations report which relied heavily on UNRWA supplied information on these strikes. There is one question which will never be asked nor will it be answered or included in any reference to UNRWA provided information, namely, was the UNRWA official in any manner or form also a member of Hamas, Islamic Jihad or other related organization or group? I am aware that even thinking such might be relevant makes me unqualified to comment on anything compiled by the United Nations because I am obviously one of those Zionist stooges who actually believes that facts matter as do Jewish lives. Since these strikes were counter-radar-tracking electronic aiming which permits the placing of return fire to within a ten meter area centered on the launch site, a three round return of fire should neutralize that firing position, but if I have my information right, the IDF often uses a single round depending on a minimalist return strike in order to minimize damage to structures near to these launch sites which are almost always next to or on the roof of United Nations structures such as UNRWA schools (or dare I refer to them as rocket storage facilities), clinics (or dare I claim these are nothing but explosive rigged walls over tunnel access simply waiting for IDF soldiers to enter before being detonated), hospitals (or do we dare mention the Hamas command and control main facility sits in the basement of the largest hospital in Gaza technically making it a valid target yet it remains standing for some reason, potentially Israeli compassions and restraint?) and other such United Nations sites such as the soccer field which hid a number of underground rocket launching locations which flip open the roof, fire, close roof and return to looking like a soccer field.

 

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri stated, emphasis or translation added in parenthesis, “We call on the world to send the murderous occupation (Israel) leaders to international courts, and we call on the (Arab Palestinian) Authority to investigate this report and to persecute (persecute was actually the way it was presented from the source) the occupation (Israel) in international courts.” I guess the best way to end this report is with another United States threat and what we feel would be the best answer to the American hypocrisy. United States Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman demanded, referring to presumed next Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that she has chosen to have “raised questions about his commitment to the two-state solution.” Undersecretary of State Sherman expressed further misgivings about Benyamin Netanyahu’s changing positions on the formation of a Palestinian state during his time as head of the government. This caused her pause and great consternations which were deeply troubling. One might even feel pity for this woman who is so troubled by Israel but then she expressed such things as her claim that the State Department and Obama administration will be watching very closely to see what happens on this [Palestinian] issue after the new government is formed. Just as I thought that perhaps her concerns and expressing the willingness to wait and discern the position of the government after such was formed and then she has to go and state, “If the new Israeli government is seen to be stepping back from its commitment to a two-state solution that will make our job in the international arena much tougher… it will be harder for us to prevent internationalizing the conflict.”

 

The threat of not being able to prevent the internationalizing the conflict is so beyond troubling that it reaches well past damning as it is actually quite childish. The United States can simply state in the Security Council the same promise they tell their Jewish minions at the New York Times, namely that ‘the United States backs Israel in determining their own fate through direct negotiations and the United States will veto any resolution that unfairly targets solely Israel and is not balanced.’ Meanwhile, at a White House meet and greet the President spoke with the heads of Jewish organizations across the spectrum of Jewish organizations to assure them that all is well between Israel and the United States. The President also implied that there is a lot more concern in having the Jewish organizations be on board with the Iran deal should one be signed and presented to Congress and the President expressed wishes that they give the agreement a chance. This acute attention to the Iran nuclear weapons deal and the thinly veiled threats to throw Israel as red meat to the whims of the international attempts at forcing their idea of a solution on Israel while making no demands of the Arab Palestinian Authority leadership would be awarding Abbas and Hamas a recognized state with the maximalist borders pushing Israel back to the same starting gates which brought on only war and this time would only be different in that even should the Arab Palestinians shoot rockets onto the runways of Ben Gurion International Airport bringing all flights in and out of Israel basically to a standstill, and aim other rockets, larger rockets, at downtown Tel Aviv striking a number of the tallest skyscrapers and force three or four to collapse, would the world permit an assault to prevent further carnage or would Israel be locked from such actions.

 

It is understood that should the United Nations, in their furtive imaginations, force their idea of a solution that a number of factors would very soon thereafter come to fruition. The initial firing of a couple of thousand rockets, Grad and Katyusha short range rockets which do minimal damage but are still quite lethal, start fires and will destroy a small house or even apartment building killing numerous Israelis. The entirety of Israel made vulnerable to such rocket fire from the Judean Hills is beyond the capacity of just nine or even a dozen Iron Dome systems, it would require tens of such systems possibly even over a hundred to cover the entire region efficiently and effectively. Even so armed, there would be those which would get through and strike within the most densely populated areas in Israel. Just as the sparsity of population bordering Gaza near guarantees most unguided munitions will not hit anything vital nor would it kill anybody with minimal protections such as shelters, the area around Tel Aviv and overseen by the Judean Hills is as densely populated as the Gaza area was sparse, thus any rocket fired is likely to do harm and cause serious damage, the probabilities are diametrically opposites. After a week of such rocket fire Israel would have no choice but to strike into Judea and Samaria and destroy whatever rockets and rocket supplies and machines for producing them. That would be but a temporary fix and Israel would be brought before the General Assembly, perhaps the Security Council, and be reprimanded for their invasion of a United Nations member state and not simply bringing the problem to the attention of the United Nations and allow them to get right on it in a couple of months after it had been completely validated that Israel has actually been attacked by the actual forces of the Arab state of Palestine or had it been terrorists for which Palestine must not be burdened with responsibility of preventing every terror attack and it will be determined they are doing everything that can be expected from them. Eventually the United Nations will respond to the Arab state of Palestine requesting international peacekeepers be placed on their border with Israel to protect the innocent Arabs from those horrific warmongering Israelis (Jews). The international peacekeepers will serve their purpose of preventing Israel incursions into the Arab nation of Palestine but will also be true to their mission statement which will not instruct them to intercede or interdict with the firing of rockets, missiles, artillery or other projectiles from within that Arab state onto Israelis and their properties. Eventually Israel will be faced with the choice of no longer existing as a nation or to retake all of Judea and Samaria and forcing every known terrorist or operative, officer, representative or anybody inferred to have any connection to terrorism or the launching of projectiles into Israel completely out of Judea and Samaria annexing every inch of the lands by right of international law implementing the San Remo Conference and its results and the United Nations guarantees of enforcing the terms of the Mandates set up by that treaty which was enacted with the unanimous agreement of the member states of the League of Nations and the United States signed as well in a treaty with the British and confirmed by Article 80 in the United Nations Charter. The residents under the areas under Israeli rule have the guarantee to individual rights, property rights, religious rights but are not guaranteed political rights so such may be withheld and permitted as per the necessities as determined to be in the best interests of Israel. Such would likely mean that with time these Arabs would be granted either some form of autonomy or granted political rights within Israel. The granting of an Arab state without any Arab recognition of Israeli right to exist would be a disaster simply waiting to happen and such would be triggered by the first election of the forced takeover by Hamas. But why worry about the future, that has never seemed to be the concern of the United Nations in anything they have attempted from day two, we will grant them that ratifying their Charter may have been a step in the right direction, but that apparently went directly to their heads and they have never moved in a similar sensible direction since, so why start now.
