The Gaza Ploy

 

Do you want to hear something absolutely ludicrous, that is if you have not already heard? The Gaza electricity crisis has little if anything to do with Israel and is all Mahmoud Abbas’s doing. You see Abbas, head of the PLO, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Fatah party, wants to get Gaza back. He wants to reunify the two halves of the Arab Palestinian territories so badly that he has created a crisis for Hamas. Hamas is his terror rival which he would just love to put out of business and take over their Gaza franchise and run it from the safety of Ramallah. Why, you may ask, is Ramallah safe for him and Gaza would not be safe? Well, that is because in Ramallah when he has a problem with people trying to assassinate him, he simply relies on the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to protect him. He would not have IDF protection in Gaza which is why he wants it. Without IDF protection, Abbas will be able to arm Gaza to the teeth just as Hamas has been doing when they can. Abbas knows he can gain an advantage Hamas cannot, funding and an open border with Egypt. How can Abbas manage that? Well, if Abbas reunified Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank), he will go to President Trump and claim he has reunified the “Palestinian territories and that means the two state solution is back in play.

 

So what, you say. Well, then Abbas can pretend that he is not a terrorist as part of the Oslo Accords granted him near immunity from being accused of terrorism. That has been how he could pay terrorists and their families salaries, or rewards, based on the number of Israelis murdered and maimed plus a side bonus for getting Israeli Minister to the Knesset. Yes, we know that President Trump got all upset over this and Abbas did his contrite and mournful puppy-dog eyes routine and promised never-ever to do such a mean and nasty thing like that again. We also know that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just went to Congress with the promise from Abbas to stop these payments and told them it was safe to restart the full flow of funding to the PA. We also know that Abbas just informed Jared Kushner that he refuses to halt pay even to worst terrorists and that the United States can suck air if it thinks he will ever stop. Yes, we know that is the opposite of what he told President Trump while in tears just a few weeks ago. That is exactly how Abbas operates, and there is more.

 

Abbas ordered the payment for fuel and electricity for Gaza terminated in order to get Gazans to remove Hamas so he will turn back on their electricity. In the meantime, they can be placed in mortal risk of unclean water, non-functioning hospitals and every ill lack of electricity can bring. Once Abbas manages, if he is able, to remove Hamas and Islamic Jihad and regain control over Gaza, he will then demand that Israel grant him the two state solution now that the Arab areas are whole again. He will run to President Trump claiming that this was promised by the United States and the United Nations (UN), and the UN will agree with him in a heartbeat or as soon as the General Assembly, and possibly the Security Council are able to vote. Yes, the Security Council hoping that the United States will not veto any such order out of confusion. Abbas will demand that Nikki Haley be told not to veto the measure. Then he will insist on the pre-Six Day War borders as promised by President Obama, likely in a secret writing of a letter which Abbas will produce, then pressing President Trump and hoping to pin him to the wall on a technicality. And yes, it is all a pack of lies, which is Mahmoud Abbas’s currency of trade, lies and swindle. How else does one believe he still holds an office that he was elected to serve a four-year term back in 2005?

 

What is scary is he just might pull this lie off before the world catches on. The Europeans will back him fully on this swindle simply because it could bring about the end of the Jewish State. They know that if he wins this round, the next step will be the demand that the Arab refugees be reunited with their homes inside of Israel. What is remarkable is that none of the refugees had homes anywhere but inside Israel. The UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) schools assign each of their students a city of origin in Kindergarten which they will carry with them for life. All the cities they assign are within Green Line Israel, within the pre-Six Day War borders. This is assuredly the plan which Abbas has dreamed of being capable of pulling off if only he could be rid of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and retake Gaza for his own. The main hope is his prevarication and out-and-out lying will be brought to the fore long before anything else can be achieved by this swindler Abbas. President Trump may have come into the Middle East knowing next to nothing and much of his crew of advisors are in that same boat, some, such as Niki Haley, actually understand what is happening and will hopefully set President Trump straight before any serious damage is accomplished. But Abbas has another plan, his Plan B.

 

Plan B has to do with getting the Egypt entrances to the Gaza region opened to permit the Arabs there to be capable of buying things not available in Gaza. This will allow him, in his theory, to bring weapons into Gaza and arm the enclave even more. Fortunately, Egypt also does not desire the Arabs in Gaza armed any further as they pose a threat to Egypt in the Sinai Peninsula. This means that Egypt also has a vested interest in keeping weapons out of Gaza. Abbas will then allow the Arabs in Gaza to fire rockets into Israel hoping to get a response from Israel. Abbas will use such a scenario to claim that if he is granted full autonomy over Gaza free from Israeli interference, then he can pacify the Arabs there by granting them electricity and sufficient water but only if those mean and horrible Jews are forced to meet their responsibility of providing these necessities. Abbas will claim that Israel is denying Gaza the electricity they used to provide as well as cutting their water and that Israeli wars destroyed the power stations and water treatment plants and Israel must replace and repair them.

 

Here is where things get tricky again as Abbas is the consummate liar. He will claim that Gaza had more than one electricity generating plant and additional water treatment plants and all other forms of infrastructure. He will turn to the European Union (EU) and European nations along with the General Assembly of the UN and Arab League, all of which will back everything he claims in order to harm Israel. We realize it sounds like the Israelis are simply paranoid but the truth is that the Europeans have never gotten past their innate anti-Semitism. For the proof of this one need look no further than the history of the Jews and their being driven from one nation to the next throughout history in Europe. Further, the actions of many of the nations conquered by the Nazis tell of their exceeding the quotas set for them by Germany for deporting their Jews to the concentration camps. Some nations, France for example, actually pleaded with the Nazis to please take the children as well as the Vichy French made better Jew haters than the Nazi troops stationed in France. Russia too has a horrific history of treatment of her Jews and the Arab world’s slaughter and mistreatment of Jews, as well as every other religion including other versions of Islam, found within their borders. One need look no further than the definition of Dhimmi in Islamic Law to see the inherent hatred for all things foreign (or watch video below). Dhimmis are permitted to live in their disgraced inferior place until their Islamic rulers decide the time has come for their conversion to the Muslim faith (the claimed true faith) or die. As we have seen of late in Egypt with Coptic Christians, sometimes death is delivered to Dhimmis without the offer to convert, they are just chosen to die, and the Coptic Christians have been Dhimmi for centuries and presumed to be protected by such status. The Jews were expelled after the formation of Israel leaving the Christians in the Islamic world to be the vulnerable.

 

 

Abbas does not dream of a day when he can make Dhimmis of the Israeli Jews, just the Christians, Baha’I and other minorities. Jews have gone beyond Dhimmitude for most of Islam and must now simply be put to the sword. This will not be admitted though almost every Jew which the Islamists have ever taken hostage have been murdered, some in gruesome fashion such as a Jewish French youth plied by a woman into an Islamic trap. He was tortured in an apartment building for three weeks before being found battered burned and handcuffed to a tree, he died soon after. The French media hid the reason for why Ilan Halimi was tortured to death, that it was because he was Jewish and for no other reason. The people in the apartment building where he screamed for weeks never thought to call authorities and instead many would knock on the apartment door and request to be able to join in the frivolity. Abbas would like to perform such on the over six-million Israeli Jews which is why he pays the terrorists according to the number of dead Jews they were able to cause. Many are making six figure incomes and most earn more than PA government employees. These are the elite, high paying positions in the PA, Jew killing terrorist; it pays in Mahmoud Abbas’s realms. Abbas sees Gaza as his own future personal free-fire zone for targeting Israel protected by the EU and UN.

 

Ilan Halimi

Ilan Halimi, another victim of Islam whose death passed with not much notice.
The fact that those in the building asked to assist makes this crime ever more horrific.

 

Abbas cannot be permitted to gain control over Gaza. Unfortunately, this decision may fall upon the UN, EU, European nations and UN agencies all of which will choose whatever promises a faster and more immediate end to Israel without leaving Jewish refugees. The lack of Jews left seeking a new nation is important as then these nations will not be revealed for the blood lust they have for Jews by their refusal to permit Jews entry. Remember the ship the St. Louis and the Voyage of the Damned. History has this uncanny way of repeating itself but with a twist and a rhyme of its former examples, but with similar if not exact results. Israel cannot afford returning to the 1967 borders (lines) as such would be a guarantee of another war and this time miracles might not happen. In the Six Day War Israel was predicted to fall. So much so that Britain and France had not only cut off military aid and frozen already paid for arms, they embargoed Israel and awaited the end of the Jewish State. The United States still had an arms embargo which had been in place since the creation of Israel on May 15, 1948. That is the reality; the United States voted in favor of recognition and then denied aid which might save the nation of Israel. The United States lifted the arms embargo in 1969 for reasons we explained in our article “I Worry for Israel and Her Future.” There are many who claim that this cannot be true because the United States has always had Israel’s back. Well, it was in the Six Day War that a United States electronics warfare ship sat in the Mediterranean Sea intercepting Israeli military transmissions and passing on pertinent information to the Egyptian military command. This was the part played by the United States but if you seek validation of this incident, you will get a very different picture of the events, this we can promise. This is part of why Israel has never and will never request any foreign fighters stand with Israel in the field of battle. Israel would prefer to go down on her own merit of her own soldiers than risk the lives of any other nation’s young men and women. If there are those who choose to fight with Israel as Israeli and under Israeli control, that is different and such soldiers have come forth in Israeli history, the most famous being Colonel Markus.

 

Abbas, like Arafat before him and the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, has only one idea in his head, and it has nothing to do with a state for Arabs called Palestine or with living side-by-side in peace and security, it has to do with the destruction of Israel. That is the one and only goal of Fatah, of the PLO and of the PA and as soon as they have destroyed Israel a new war will break out between Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Islamic State and Syria, if it exists at that time, for control of the land which will mark the graves of over six million Jews as well as many thousands of others including approximately two-hundred-thousand Christians, Baha’I and other religious minorities. This is the desire of Abbas and also Hamas except Hamas has a higher aim, they call for the death of Jews universally wherever they may be found on Earth. That is the difference between Fatah, the PLO and the PA and Hamas, they all desire the destruction of Israel and have no interest in governing anything which is why the Arabs in their care suffer so badly, they have no real government, just homicidal maniacs completely enveloped in the murdering of Jews, while Hamas desires to carry their hatred beyond Israel to the remainder of the world. Abbas must not be permitted to succeed as the destruction of Israel will all but guarantee the end of Judaism within a century, two at the most, unless some miracle were to occur to prevent the remainder of the Jewish People from assimilating to the point that they lose sight of all that makes them Jews. This has been the biggest problem faced by the Jewish leaders in the United States as the Jewish population swindles through intermarriage and assimilation to the point that many Jewish mothers no longer raise their children as Jews, and for many it is because they do not know how as their parents were mostly already assimilated. To them being a Jew meant belonging to a Jewish youth group, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah and that was it. Many even stopped belonging to a congregation or even attending services on Shabbat or the High Holidays. Perhaps they would attend a Seder at Passover if an older relative held one, but those relatives are passing on, or they might have a Hanukah candelabra which they light and keep near their Hanukah bush which has an uncanny resemblance to a Christmas tree. That is the truth and it is a sad reality that within the next generation or two, the only Jews will be those in Israel and a few communities who reside in the same area as their Rabbi and they will soon become endangered as well, if they do not make Aliyah to Israel. For almost all Jews they can make Aliyah to Israel or by the time they have grandchildren, their family will no longer be Jews.

 

Christmas tree and Hanukkah Hanukkiah

Christmas tree and Hanukkah Hanukkiah.
Assimilation is its simplest form.

 

Seriously? Yes, very serious and all too true and it seems that the Jews in Israel are fighting this battle against assimilation except in Israel assimilation is believing the lies we hear from the Europeans, Arabs, too many Christian leaders and others who claim if we just give Abbas his desires then all will be well. The worst thing is the number of Jews in Israel and the United States who actually believe this. Our fear is that Jarred Kushner may be amongst those who believe the two state solution means anything other than another war to destroy Israel, seriously!

Continued Terror Alert Israel, an Updated Look Back

 

Yesterday, as of the writing of this article, there were already three stabbing style terror attacks. These continued stabbing attacks are still accompanied by vehicular attacks ramming into crowds of people and often followed by the driver exiting the crashed vehicle and attempting stabbing. There was one who exited, leaping from his vehicle, with a hand axe and seriously injured more people with the axe than he had with his company provided vehicle. That’s right, he worked within Israel, had a decent to good paying job many would love to have and a company car and the trust of his company. In return he attempted to use that company car to murder people and then proceeded to hack at people and we posted the video Reflective Spurs Reactive showing how even after being shot he kept attempting to get to his feet and continued lunging at people trying to injure or murder until he was sufficiently struck preventing his ability to continue. He was rushed to a hospital after being treated and attempted to be and was somewhat stabilized and rushed into emergency surgery but to no avail, if memory serves, as he succumbed to his injuries as did two of his victims. This assault in particular showed how specious the argument is that the Arab terrorism in Israel is driven by racist Israeli policies and treatment, lack of decent employment opportunities, desperation from no future and every possible blame for the terrorism which can be placed at the feet of Israelis generally and Israeli Jews in particular, while the terrorists are given excuses and never to be held responsible for their actions as long as their terrorisms are carried out against Israelis or targeting Jews.

 

There was a rumored story where one of the general terror groups which attacked mostly Western targets and were hunted by the Western intelligence and other security agencies asked Yasser Arafat how he was able to be even excused and blessed by the western nations which were chasing down his people and Arafat responded that the secret was to only target Jews. One might be thought to challenge this statement for its validity as the nations would each protect their citizens, all their citizens including Jews, equally and surely we would be challenged to find any instances where terrorists attacking only a Jewish target were pursued any less than if they had assaulted non-Jews (picture writer smiling at the challenge). We might start with United States Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement that the murders of the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo and the Kosher market Hyper Cacher were understandable because of the insulting cartoon published by the Charlie Hebdo Magazine and the Hyper Cacher Kosher store on erev Shabbat because there would be mostly Jews in the store. Here are a couple of items which many may not have heard as one was not covered by many news outlets and we found out about it a while after the attacks and the other got some pay and deserves all the coverage it can possibly receive. The kosher Market Hyper Cacher also had many Muslim patrons and also had a hero in one of their workers who hid a number of the Jews doing their shopping by concealing them in the downstairs walk-in freezer turning the thermostat up so they would not freeze and remained outside of the freezer himself in case one of the terrorists came into the downstairs area. His name is Lassana Bathily and he represented the other face of Islam, the face of being a peaceful member of a multicultural community whose religion, as he practices it, is the religion of peace that we all hear about. We covered his heroism in our coverage during the days of horror in France in our article Two Faces of Islam in Charlie Hebdo Attacks, which he tried to humbly put the praise he received off and claim anyone would have done the same; he was so wrong and if only all the world would have done the same in similar circumstances the world would be a far better place for such. The other side has to do with the Charlie Hebdo attack where the terrorists had researched their targets extensively. They allowed the women employees from Charlie Hebdo to all leave unharmed, almost; there was an exception, one female employee whose work was no different than the women allowed to depart, except she was different, so very different. Her name was Elsa Cayat, a Jew, the only female Jew, targeted for her Jewishness, nothing else made her different, she was average height, average weight, pleasant appearance, and did same work but was born a Jew. It mattered not if she attended Synagogue, prayer, studied Torah or even considered herself as a Jewess but since she was born of a Jewish mother and that was all the reason the terrorists required to murder her in cold blood. Imagine the dread and fatalist stark terror she felt knowing why she had been singled out from the rest of the women and just waiting those horrific minutes until the end came for her as it did to the other cartoonists and editors were all executed. Elsa Cayat was only fifty-four and an “incredibly passionate woman” and “brilliant psychoanalyst,” as reputed by friends and family. According to The Independent news service, the Tunisian-born psychiatrist received her medical degree at the age of 21, and was survived by a sole child, a daughter.

Two other examples took place in Argentina; the first was the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, where twenty-nine people were murdered, four Israelis and twenty-five Argentine. Non-fatal injuries included two-hundred-forty-two civilians. The second in took place on July 18, 1994, where the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) was bombed (see below) and the prosecutor, Alberto Nisman, was subsequently murdered to prevent any of the truth to be made public. The vigilant and dedicated prosecutor was to give testimony the next day before the Argentine Parliament about the eighty-five murdered victims and the over three-hundred injured. His report was rumored to potentially implicate high officials including perhaps a past President and even the sitting President. Prosecutor Nisman was found dead in his apartment and his death was initially reported to have been a suicide. This farce was quickly revealed and refuted but the continuing investigation onto the AIMA bombing had gone cold and retracted evidence while any investigation into Alberto Nisman’s untimely death has also gone absolutely nowhere despite reported rumors claim that he was assassinated by Hezballah or IRGC (Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps) murder squad to stifle the evidence he had pointing the finger at high Iranian involvement, potentially President Rowhani and high IRGC officers, some of which hold high officers in the present government.

Going back a few years to January 21, 2006 the ordeal of torture and ransom demands in the abusive victimization of Ilan Halimi (pictured below), a young man of twenty-three years, was ignored by the media plus those who did cover story omitted the fact that he was Jewish which may have played a major role in his being targeted. The family’s lawyer, Francis Szpiner, may have described the ordeal and the additional crimes committed in the story about Ilan Halimi when he complained that reports even after his death and obvious torture to extents considered inhuman and sadistic beyond modern sensibilities when he stated, “the silence killed Ilan Halimi and justice has helped to perpetuate this conspiracy of silence, because the public was not told why he was killed.” The Chilling story about what was perpetrated upon this young man simply because he was a Jew and Jews have money was written by Giulio Meotti.

The stories from the corners of the earth are a testimony that anti-Semitism in its raw form or wrapped in the most recent disguises of anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism in politics, reporting, investigating of crimes perpetrated and, the most chilling, remembrance and memory which is particularly short when the victims are Jews. Should an Arab Muslim be handled other than with deference and respect the newspapers and newscasts around the world howl and morn this travesty of justice but a young Jews be tortured for over three weeks and the only reaction from the people hearing his screams was to come to the door of these monsters and request to whip or put cigarettes or try a new and inventive torture before the wretched remains were doused with gasoline and lit on fire as a final tortured manner to end the torment and murder the Jew. Even this he survived and was stumbling in the hope of receiving some assistance, any assistance but there was no sympathy. Had some of the first to come across what had to be a pitying and horrific sight of a mass of flesh barely human in its appearance, but had just one assisted this soul immediately then he may have been saved and nursed back to life. Unfortunately his fate was sealed; this was France, the home of the Vichy.

 

The pictures below are the remains of the bus and some of the aftermath of a suicide bombing where seven people lost their lives and dozens were injured, many quite seriously. This assault could have been far worse but a brave Israeli all but knowingly sacrificed himself and more crucially his body to prevent the bomber from entering the bus forcing them to detonate outside of the bus lessening the fatalities from the incident. This attack, like most of these terrorist strikes, was under reported and faded from the pages that chronicle events of importance. The lives of Jews are still undervalued by their fellow men as the death of a sports star, rock-n-roll singer all deserve more ink for a much longer period as a catharsis appears to be required while the death of Jews is almost the tranquilizer that glazes over the eyes of too many around the world but particularly in Europe. This bus, like Elsa Cayat at Charlie Hebdo, like Hyper Cacher Kosher market, like the AIMA bombing, like Alberto Nisman, like Ilan Halimi and like far too many others in numbers are dizzying that span the extent of human history and even before. This tour bus had been rented by a group of Israelis and instead of taking them to a vacation of sun and fun it was the vehicle utilized by a set of terrorists to ply their twisted trade again upon those innocents who were guilty of one sole characteristic, they were Jews. But this tragedy received scant attention within the week, put to bed with nary a follow-up that we could find about those hospitalized and the rate of their recovery. For far too many this vacation became a victimization brought down upon them by the oldest known hatred perpetrated by man upon mankind and too often for it to be anything but deliberate, the crime of passionate hate brought once again upon the Jewish People. The need for Israel is greatest when the world most desires to deny us the right of having our own nation. It is when the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) Movement and too many others, some even Jewish siding with those who would destroy us and them without giving our opposing politics a moments glance. These are the times the Jewish People need an Israel where at least this one place exists where Jews can protect Jews by force of arms if that is what is required.

Ask yourself where the world would have been had Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons. Of course we may get the next best thing, the Mullocracy in Iran with Nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them. Ask where would the world have been had Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad had nuclear bombs instead of barrel bombs to drop upon his own people, well, not so much people as countrymen. His people are the Alevites who are but a small part of the Syrian peoples, as Russia is finding out much to their dismay. Remember that when Israel knocked out Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program which was being aided by the French, the United States stopped weapons purchases for almost a year as that airstrike caused quite an uproar in the Arab world and the United States was placed in a particularly vulnerable spot where the choice was placate the Arabs and short Israel or cover for Israel and going without the next need to placate the Arab world and reap their indignation.

 

The Jews are referred to as the canaries and the world as the coal mine. We Jews are tossed at the enemies of the Western World just as we had done under many the tacticians of many of the empires throughout history, one might remember we saw the rise and fall of many a ruler over all that is worth ruling until their neighbor appeared weak and the Jews were thrown against the battlements and if they were slightly successful then the full assault could begin. Sometimes being wanted for an important purpose is simply another way of defining a potentially foolhardy poking and prodding your intended target, testing intended enemies’ strengths and seeking their weaknesses. Jews might have sacrificed a ram before going into battle but it seems Europeans and the Sultans both had their own way, they sacrificed their Jews. Such an honor I could gladly do without.
