Perhaps Netanyahu is not the Answer

 

There is the possibility that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is not the one who makes Israel whole and annexes Judea and Samaria. What if the answer comes from another source, another place and another person? We prayed and realized that what needs to be will be and Hashem will have his designs, desires and will completed, just not necessarily in the manner which is most straight forward. But first perhaps we should share that which we expect and then try to figure out the remainder of the puzzle.

 

We know that Prime Minister Netanyahu had a brief conversation with President Trump on the phone this weekend. We know the call lasted under thirty minutes and that the end result is President Trump has invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to visit in February in Washington D.C. We can extrapolate that one of the men, more likely President Trump, refused to talk about any plans or the “peace process” preferring to talk mano-a-mano so that Trump can take the measure of Bibi and ascertain what truths he is able to glean and judge the Israeli position on everything from there. We need to remember that President Trump prefers to take the measure of people in person and often gets it right when feeling the pulse of the other people face to face. President Trump is a people person and not likely as much prone to discuss things of an important nature with a person he has no yardstick established or any real measure of the person as to their truthfulness and the validity which can be assigned their words. President Trump can likely see a huckster from a mile away after dealing with some of the greatest showmen and women on the planet in New York real estate and other ventures around the world. Trump may not have the wealth he claims but he does have the sense for business and the ability for deal making where a deal is possible. So step one with Israel is to take a measure of Bibi and at the same time ascertain to what extent Israel has been the problem and what extent the victim.

 

So what is step two? Step two is taking a measure of Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab or Palestinian side of the equation. The one truth we know about Mahmoud Abbas is that he believes himself to be a slick trickster who easily plays on European ingrained anti-Semitism with great success. He hit a chord with President Obama and Obama virtually went to work for Abbas against Israel. Now Abbas is going to try and out hustle a hustler and that will be an interesting scenario. The question is not will Donald Trump see through Abbas, it is how long it will take before he sees through Abbas and his façade and lies. We doubt it will take too long as the very first item Trump will see is a simple visualization. His discussion with Bibi will be all about peace and what Israel would do for peace and little if any demands of the Arabs other than peace and recognition that Israel exists and will continue to do so. Abbas, on the other hand, will also talk of peace but will be setting goals and demands to be met in order to even sit down and talk about what other demands he can make before the world peace is permitted to even be mentioned. That is when and where Trump will see that Abbas does not desire peace, he is after a military victory through negotiations. Trump has likely run into Abbas type people throughout his childhood and has maybe been taken by a few of the first hucksters, but he has also hit the big leagues and dealt with the likes of the Reverend Sharpton and his ilk. Trump will see what is what and who is who and quickly make his reconnaissance and all which will remain is his solution. That might take up to six months to a year depending on time invested.

That brings us to step three, the deal. This will at best be a conference possibly in Abbas’s home court of Paris, France. Netanyahu will also be invited and both men will be told to bring their advisors and be ready to get the deal done. The pot may be sweetened by inviting the French President and his advisors and even invite another Abbas facilitator, the High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and whomever she would like to be her escort and figurehead advisor. There might even be the chance for the evil one, at least according to the New York Times, Vladimir Putin brought onboard just for that extra panache. Once the stage is set, the show can commence. By the time this confab has been arranged, The Donald will already have spoken with both of the main members of this conference, Abbas and Netanyahu, and have reached his verdict and little if anything will be capable of changing that mind. Trump will know which he believes is the honest broker and which is the huckster attempting to pull one over again. Trump may already have a fair idea and be predisposed in one direction and everything else is part of the show, we have to put on a show as how often does one get to play on a stage this grand and elaborate in front of the eyes of the world. This is a once in a lifetime appearance and President Trump will make the most of his opportunity. Do not for a minute as the conference unfolds believe it will not go exactly as President Trump desires as he is the main attraction, the master of ceremonies and the man who can deliver the goodies.

 

The fact that there has been talk that President Trump was thinking of assigning Jared Kushner, his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law, to be his special representative to settle the Israel-Palestinian conflict speaks volumes, both quantity and decibel level, about the direction Trump is leaning. Trump has met Netanyahu before and knows the man well enough to already have a good picture of his virtues and drawbacks. Trump probably has a line on Abbas and company as well as probably has their positions and bluster all summed up. The meetings now are to dress the bride for the ceremony, and only one of the potential bridegrooms get to go home with the prize while the other gets a bouquet which will rapidly wilt before he gets home. Could things turn around, sure, and I could become Trump’s Ambassador to Shangri-La and live forever in a garden paradise hidden away in some remote valley in the Himalayas. President Trump has been hiring some extremely high level firepower for much of his Cabinet and as personal advisors despite the brouhaha over his Secretary of Education pick, Ms. Betsy DeVos. By mentioning that he was considering appointing his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law to negotiate between the Israelis and Palestinians, he was signaling that his mind on the subject was made up and appointing what appears to be as biased a person in favor of Israel as humanly possible was just Trump’s way of signaling his direction. Discern what you may about his direction from such an obviously skewed choice.

 

So what remains is the set-up of the match, just like the UFC, you bring each fighter before the media, separately in this case as having them together would make for too ugly a scene and this has been choreographed to the final blow. Then you allow the media to get a feel for each side’s training camp and give everything the build-up of an impossible deal. Finally, you gather the top people, often these are Hollywood types to fill the first three rows for the UFC main event mixed in with former champions, but here it will be leaders such as we mentioned above and who you add to the list of top EU and other European officials along with Putin and possibly whoever replaces Ban Ki-moon as United Nations Secretary General and if some Arabs desire to come along, all the better. Putin will either be briefed on what to expect before he is invited to make sure he desires to be seen alongside the final deal as will a select group of others. Then there will be the three or four days of drama in the media as to whether Trump can make the deal or not, but the deal was already formulated and all but finalized beforehand and Trump is holding all the cards including, of course, the Trump Cards. When the pressure has almost peaked, as if it peaks then Abbas will spout some crazy, over the top demands and disappear showing up back in Ramallah launching the next Intifada. So, anticipating the point at which Abbas does his usual disappearing act, Trump will alert the media, close the airport and trains stations preventing anybody bolting, and the next morning the main event will take center stage, as we intimated, possibly Paris or perhaps Rome, it is beautiful there in the Spring. Trump will appear in a large press room before all the cameras and reporters with Bibi Netanyahu on one side and Abbas on the other side. Abbas will be wearing his usual “there are cameras in front of me smirk.” One can see the image below of that exact smirk which he wore when he was pictured center of the front line for the procession mourning the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher Market terror attacks. The fact that it was more a funeral than a parade is obvious from the other faces in the picture. But please never tell to Abbas such truths as that might cause laughter to accompany the smirk, especially if he knows that it was all the result of a terror attack. One need remember that terrorism is his trade coinage.

Before such an audience is where Trump would like to make his grand finale, but he also might end up settling for something far more low key if he decides to allow Abbas to bolt, thus hanging his side permanently. Walking out on Donald Trump because he would not give you all of the candy will not play well. Since Abbas is demanding the entire bowl of candy and demanding the Jews be removed so he can enjoy all of the candy from the Jordan River of chocolate to the Mediterranean Sea of Skittles, his idea of a good Israel is no Israel. That has been the Palestinian chant taught to college students and leftist protesters across Europe and North America and anywhere else pro-Palestinian demonstrations have been bought and paid for including the defining, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” That sure leaves a whole lot to debate over, especially when it really is the only solution Abbas can accept as that is exactly what he has promised and so often that the people do not care or remember that there were possibilities that it would have to happen in stages. After President Obama and his grand schemes and promises and Abbas doing all he could to out-promise Obama, the Arabs expect they have already won. Nobody has told them there is a new sheriff in town, and he is taking names and numbers. At this point everything is conjecture but we feel pretty confident things should play out in some manner similar to what we have vaguely described above, or at least we like to think they will.

It’s Only Just Begun, the Promises, to Live

 

Yes Europe, you’ve only just begun and by the time it is all over, and that is counted in decades, at the longest, months with the start for Western Europe. Eastern Europe, who attempted to stand clear of the insanity, put up barriers now, before the propaganda war and slow death by infiltration starts. Look to Israel as that is now your fate. Western Europe, you can look to Gaza as you’re half way there, it’s only just begun. Like the song, once you’ve made the promises, “White lace and promises,” you’re married and before you know it, “We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow; and yes, we’ve just begun.” There is an infestation hidden amongst the refugees and they will continue to use the refugees as cover. The refugees will cover because it is all about honor and imposing Sharia. And learn that it is Sharia or the Sharia as there is no need for placing the world ‘law’ after it because Sharia is not simply laws, it is a complete and total lifestyle worked on by the Imams at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt. Everybody either already knows their future is to be choreographed by these infiltrators because they are the strong ones who can have you and your family murdered, not just in Europe but back home as well. These infiltrators are part of a greater whole and they belong to different terror groups, and it’s only just begun, so many roads to choose, we’ll start out walkin’ and learn to run.

 

Who are these terror groups, you ask? Some are well known though often misunderstood such as the Muslim Brotherhood. Others bring a chill to one’s spine just hearing the word such as Islamic State. Then there are the ones we have all heard their names but thought they were only in far off places such as the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Hezballah, Hamas and many others you will know by name as things get worse. What, you think we are alarmists? Alarmist is a good definition as we are sounding the alarm and waiting to hear one of two results, the death gasp as a final breath is taken in and released for the final time and Western Europe is no more. You are well on your way when the vast majority of statues were covered in heavy cloth hiding their very form and many of the pictures now festooning the Vatican’s walls have larger outlines of where other pictures had formerly sat and which were obviously larger. Why were all these maskings done? They were done so as not to offend Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during his visit, a sort of Islam-proofing of Vatican City. Surprisingly all of Rome was not similarly wrapped so as not to offend. This begs the question, when Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was driven from the airport and passed some of the statues in Rome, many of which have nude women sculpted and some even depict touching, did any of these statues along his route drive him into an uncontrollable frenzy where his masculine virility drove him passed the breaking point? If not, then nature’s sensual pleasures upon seeing explicitly exposed segments of the female image are controllable and suppressed with a modicum of effort. Perhaps it was his education and upbringing which had taught him self-control; imagine that such a feat can be accomplished. This President Rouhani must be a rare specimen of the male human animal to be capable of acting so, so, so European and civilized, and it’s only just begun, sharing horizons that are new to us, watching the signs along the way, talkin’ it over, just the two of us.

 

What makes these groups terror groups, you ask? Well, because they deal in terror. They choreograph acts of unspeakable madness and cruelty targeting the weakest parts of one’s society slowly but inexorably forcing them into a fight or surrender to Islam response almost universally to the non-Muslims in the targeted society. Yes our little friend Western Europe, we understand you simply took in a number of desperate refugees and did not notice this large percentage of young and capable men who arrived without wives or children despite their being right in front of you. This blindness became most evident on New Year’s Eve with the sexual molestations and rapes of women in the central areas where festivities were planned and were completely ignored by the police and other forms of law enforcement. We now have realized it was all some innocent fun which was carried too far. The government is calling the whole set of events across much of Europe as refugees acclimating and teaching the society their new rules of conduct. Some of the nameless have been caught and many released probably under promises they will leave the targeted city. Mayor of Cologne Henriette Reker claims “It is important to prevent such incidents from ever happening again. We have heard by now that they (the sexual violence) have occurred in other cities. This of course is not comforting to us.” She further suggested that these incidents could have been avoided if the women had simply kept their attacker at arm’s length, they could have behaved civilly; what did these German hussies expect getting so close to these new and un-acclimated refugees? In addition to the arm’s length rule there has been another chilling blame the victims as the good Mayor of Cologne has issued a partial list of new codes of conduct for the people in her city and likely to be adopted beyond, which include but are not limited to a new code of conduct which includes maintaining an arm’s length distance from strangers, to stick within your own group, to ask bystanders for help or to intervene as a witness, or to inform the police if you are the victim of such an assault. Yep, that’ll solve the problems, and it’s only just begun, we smile, so much of life ahead, we’ll find a place where there’s room to grow.

The ‘situation’ has yet to really get going. You want a sampling of what is coming? You do not need look that far, simply find some Facebook friends from Israel and ask them what your future will be like once these refugees get settled down and completely moved in. You need to understand, these are simply the first wave, the ones who arrived on their own. The next wave will be their demands to bring the remainder of their family to join them as they too are refugees living either in camps or still inside Syria and no open borders and they will need proof of residence awaiting their arrival. Immediate family becomes extended family which demands expanding to somewhat distant family who would be appreciative if the entire clan, village, tribe, and before you know it they are electing Islamic Party members to the Parliament and they almost make up a majority. The future should now finally dawn upon even the slowest of slow politicians, and then it is only because their plush little position is threatened should their party not have as many mandates as it does now forcing the selecting of a shorter list which will no longer include those sacrificial lambs, but at least these seats were not lost to those evil, ignorant nationalist fools who actually oppose the progressive and open-minded egalitarianism shown by the leftist, intellectual, progressive, caring, warm-hearted representatives of the new gentrified and accommodating Europe. Isn’t life beautiful, and it’s only just begun, to live, before the risin’ sun, we fly.

 

The Muslim population in France has already provided them a taste of their future with days of rage, the Charlie Hebdo and the siege of the Hyper Cacher market and the attacks which swarmed Paris on Friday November 13, 2015, when there were seven coordinated terror attacks. Then there were the Madrid train massacre in Spain, the bus and tube bombings in England and near countless other lesser terror attacks over the years. The truth of what life can be like in Israel where in the past three months there have been at least ten Israelis murdered, and numerous attacks every single day be they rock throwing, shootings, ramming of vehicles into crowds and stabbings using anything from screwdrivers to meat cleavers or hatchets all the way up to fire axes as found on firetrucks used to dislodge or chop through stuck doors. Many of the high and mighty self-proclaimed judges of the wrongs committed by those breaking human rights decencies solely within the lands controlled by Israel with the one mitigating factor being the offenses were carried out in a defensive manner to protect one’s life or to save another who has fallen victim before the assailant has time to kill or maim again as these killing machines will not stop until stopped, will soon be condemning Europeans for their intolerance. They have condemned Israel for protecting their people as it has once again led to a disproportional number of dead from the Arab side and nowhere near sufficient Jews are being murdered. Never mind that there are more Israelis injured and potentially permanently maimed and murdered than there have been Arab attackers killed or apprehended. This may come as a surprise to most as the European media tends to only cover the Arab deaths and ignore the Arab attackers marauding and attempting to murder as many Jews as they are able. Another item they have conveniently left out is that Israeli Christians and Muslims are just as likely to be injured or killed by these acts of violence. Another item left out of many editorials and newscasts is that the majority, a sizable majority of the attackers are young male Arabs with some from Autonomous Palestinian Authority Arabs and a more than comforting numbers have been from Israeli towns. Almost all the terrorists captured claim their attacks were inspired by the indoctrination saturated programs as well as the urgings made by Mahmoud Abbas, played on these channels, all based on the blood-libel that the Jews were assailing the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. This and more of the situation in Israel is coming to Europe and the groundwork has been laid with the first wave of ‘refugees.’

 

The difference is that in Israel there has been sufficient experience and a set-up and effective response which is snapped into place whenever there is a surge in terror activity. There is one item which we suffer from above and beyond the terrorism which condemns any and all actions taken in efforts to prevent or to arrest the Arab terrorist attackers. The sad item is when you as an individual European will also reap the scorn and indignations of your fellow politically correct intelligentsia should you damage the tender psyches of these traumatized Syrian refugees and the other unfortunates who came along with them. These eternal critics who reside in gated and heavily guarded residences, ride in or drive hardened vehicles equipped with run flat tires and work in secured buildings will shove their infinite ignorance down your throats as they will be calling you racists and demanding that you stop defending yourself and instead stay at arm’s length from those dead set on assailing you and plunging their knife, screwdriver or other bladed or pointed instrument through any lethal area accessible on your body. The elites will not be feeling your pain or your fright and they will be incapable of understanding anything you will be experiencing as the terror war increases and spreads into a society all so vulnerable and utterly unprepared. But, as we have been telling you, it’s only just begun (song lyrics below).

 

Beyond the Cusp

 

 

We’ve only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way
(We’ve only begun)

Before the risin’ sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We’ll start out walkin’ and learn to run
And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talkin’ it over, just the two of us
Workin’ together day to day
Together

And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talkin’ it over, just the two of us
Workin’ together day to day
Together
Together

And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun
