Solution to Arab-Israeli Conflict is 3000 Years Old

 

The real initial step to a proper and equitable solution of the Arab-Israeli Conflict is to first admit that, and let us be honest, the Arab world focused their intent for destruction of Israel to this invented group of Arabs they agreed to call Palestinians. Even their name was stolen from the term used by empires to name the Jews in the Holy Lands from the Roman Empire straight through to the British Empire, when they were given the Mandate. The British even solved the Arab-Israeli problem by giving 78% of the Mandate to the Arab nation we now call Jordan and promised the remaining 22%, the lands west of the Jordan River, were guaranteed as indivisible for the Jewish nation (see map below). Did anyone catch the important words ‘guaranteed as indivisible’ just as the British backed their word presumably with the British Crown? So, we will work from there and then seek a plausible and equitable solution. This decision was justified as conforming to the lands promised the Israelites in the Bible which were the lands west of the Jordan River.

Israel should simply inform the leadership and security forces in the Shomron and Gaza that in exactly number of days, let us start with one week, to gather their moveable property and bankbooks and leave going to whatever nation which will accept them. Should they find that time limit is impossible to meet, they should be informed that the IDF will be tasked with assisting them in whatever means they choose. Should their choice be that they are not going without a fight, the IDF should be instructed to use whatever amount of force leaves their soldiers at the least risk. Should resistance be attempted, the rest of the world should be informed that such resistance could lead to casualties. The freeing of the Arabs residing currently under vindictive dictatorships in both Gaza and the PA regions of the Shomron should be something cheered throughout the world. We realize that because Israel will be involved, the world will grow a huge chip on their shoulders and gather all their rage into stern stares before claiming that Israel is destroying Palestinian democracy. We have a little secret for people who wish to know the reality; the only Arabs living under a free democracy between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea reside as citizens of Israel and are not part of the Palestinian Arab population. Once the regions have been cleared of those whose interests are based on continued and permanent conflict with Israel thusly pacified, we can proceed to find that equitable solution.

 

The promise we will provide is that each Arab currently residing in these areas will be given the same choices with those living in the refugee camps and will be treated with some degree of equality with those not in the camps. More on this as we proceed. There is an equitable means for giving the Arabs in question freedom. First, they will be granted a choice, and they will be required to choose one of these choices within a set period, likely four months. The first choice is to remain living where they are and being treated as an alien resident just as many workers from around the world who take jobs within Israel. These Arabs will be required to sign a nonaggression pledge which if violated will result in deportation. Anyone remaining with the design of committing some terrorist action, they should know that any conviction of attempted or acted terrorism will result in deportation with no right to ever return. Once someone had been so deported, should they reenter Israel, it will be on pain of life in prison. Those remaining will be allowed to work where they find employment and will pay the same taxes as other resident aliens. As far as their ever being permitted to become citizens of Israel will be something which would be determined in the future. The second choice is to leave Israel permanently only permitted to return for visits with a Visa stating the length of such a visit. Those leaving will not be sent away without compensations. First, they will be given high market value for their property for which they can produce a deed. Further, each person leaving will be granted a relocation bonus. The bonus will be a one-time offer which will end at the end of the stated period. The people in the refugee camps will receive compensation equal to the average property value if they decide to leave Israel. For those who remain there may be a set amount they will be permitted towards purchasing a residence. The camps will be leveled at the end of the period and new apartments or other housing built in their place.

 

When the world explodes claiming that Israel is being inhumane, they will be justly ignored. One reason is that these Arabs will be permitted to elect their own leadership locally but will not be permitted to vote in national elections. These regions where they will be granted this added right will only apply to the region where they currently reside. Those outside of these locations will be given a set period in which to relocate to one of the named areas receiving a fair price for their present deeded property. The main part of this solution is that the Arabs may have a choice for how they desire to spend their future. All Israel desires is to be at peace and that is the result of this plan. Any Arab choosing to commit violence against Israel, they should understand that such will be met with whatever violence is required to permanently end such attacks. The IDF will be told to act in whatever manner places their soldiers in the least amount of threat. They should take a direct and immediate response to any violence seeking to remove the source of the violence. This would include targeting those who were responsible for the violence including the planners, the ones who produced or provided the weaponry such as rockets, bombs, mortars and launchers, and those who ordered the violence no matter where they may be located. Israel will no longer accept any forms of violence to be used targeting her citizens and will consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended. Israel will also be open to exchanging ambassadors with any Arab nation desiring such plus this exchange will be a sign of peace ending any belligerence between Israel and that nation. This would be a face saving method of ending the state of war still existing between Israel and numerous nations of the Arab League. Israel will also open trade with these nations which will hopefully enhance relations.

 

Once the lives of those Arabs who remain within Israel improves, and their happiness becomes obvious and terrorism is no longer a problem, a situation which will become evident within a year or possibly as long as two years, then perhaps the world will finally calm down and realize that Israel is not going away and had made peace with the Arabs, even if the Arabs have not all made peace with Israel. This is a formula for peace, permanent and steady peace in which all will benefit. Will it cost Israel a lot of money to enact such a solution? Probably, but that cost will be returned in the properties and people saved by the ending of terrorism and having peace. Once this plan has been enacted and the time has passed for the Arabs to choose, after that peace will be all but around the corner. The final problem will be those Arabs who refuse to take either choice is the final problem. These Arabs will be deported with no remuneration and their method of removal will have the identical form as was the initial removal of the leadership and known people who were participating in terror in any form. The IDF will be instructed to take all measures to keep their soldiers as safe as possible. Then the Arabs who remain will have signed a nonaggression pledge which will mean that peace will finally be possible and even likely. Those who refuse to accept this peace will be addressed with sufficient force to terminate such threats if from outside of Israel and by deportation to any from within Israel. The world will need to understand that Israel will no longer tolerate any violence perpetrated against any of her citizens and all violence will be addressed without regard to borders if the neighboring nations are unwilling to prevent the violence against Israeli citizens and property.

 

Israel will probably continue to see resolution after resolution from all parts of the United Nations, European Union and collective nations, the Arab League and collective nations, and others from all around the globe. For those nations, actively condemning Israel will find that Israel will return the favor by limiting trade with these nations. These limitations will not be in the form of limiting Israel goods being sold but in informing the Israeli people about who these nations are and the Israeli people will choose whether or not to buy products from that nations and Israeli companies can choose whether or not to deal with these nations. There will not be a need for actual trade wars or tariffs or any normative form of limit on trade, it will be simply the choices made by the Israeli people. Some will possibly decide to seek to buy the effected products while others will avoid buying these products. Israel will add one requirement to commercials for product that their nation of origin be included in a standard disclaimer at the end of the commercial. Informed consumers are happy consumers.

 

Lastly, there will be an adjustment period where there will be a near constant cacophonic din of chaotic disdain for what Israel will be doing. The main claim will be that Israel has no claim to these lands. We advise they check the entirety of conferences, conventions and treaties resulting from World War I and then settle down. What would actually be doing Israel a great favor would be to take Israel before any of the various World Courts or at The Hague, as this would settle the entire uproar rather quickly. Just so we can save the world’s time, International Law is on the side of Israel and that was plain to see in the map at the beginning of this article. Israel legally owns all the lands in question with the exception of Gaza. That would not be much of a problem as Hamas and Islamic Jihad are both terrorist organizations which means that Gaza is no longer a nation or recognized governance as terrorist groups are not actual governments and are to be addressed in any necessary action to end their occupation of lands. The Shomron belongs to Israel as the Palestinian Authority actually has run past its limited time within which it was to make a lasting peace. By refusing to make peace, they are no longer relevant and as such, they are no longer legal governance. This is a just settlement of the problem which will work to the benefit of the Arabs involved and free them from the oppressive whims of their dictatorial leadership which enforces its power through violent suppression of choice, freedom, and liberty and stifles free enterprise and strangles the regional economies. This would be a liberation process and those who feel they desire oppressive governance can choose to relocate virtually anywhere else in the region. Israel will take any complaints about her treatment of the Arabs who remain from the Palestinian Arabs for their actual worth and ignore them six months after this process has been applied. When Israel finds a terrorist which nations complain will be improperly deported, Israel will gladly offer to deport them to the complaining nations at random. We can hardly wait to see who wins the first raffling for the location for the first deportee. Who will be the lucky nation, France, Sweden, Canada, Venezuela or where?

The World of Misconceptions About Israel

 

The first and most grievous misconception which persists no matter how many times it has been debunked is that Israel initiated the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. In order to address this there are a few facts which need discussion. At the end of the 1948-9 Arab War of Annihilation of the nascent Zionist Entity, Israel, where over a half dozen nations sent large military contingents in order to crush the life out of the Jewish State the morning of her birth, the world using either the refused division of the land or using the Peel Commission plan, they claimed Israel had conquered territory in a war the Jew started. The reality is that after the Arab League refused UN General Assembly Res. 181, it became defunct and left Israel with the Jordan River and Mediterranean as her borders that fateful May 15, 1948 morning. This means that Israel lost the areas illegally held by Jordan, Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and the Egyptians, the Gaza Strip. Unbelievably, Israel initially only held about one third of the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea militarily at the outset of the conflict. Making matters even more perilous, many Arab villages which were behind the lines held by the Israeli three elements of military power, the Haganah, the Irgun and the Sternists; the three were eventually combined with a mutually mostly recognized hierarchy of officers into the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), and these villages were well armed Arab units which attacked supply lines and often engaged Israeli fighters from behind their defensive positions thus making their defense facing frontal and rear attacks simultaneously. The result of this problem was the main reason that any village allowing such armed fighters were forced into the Arab side of the lines of battle as leaving them in the rear was suicidal and would have proved fatal for the nascent nation of Israel. These villagers make up the vast majority of what are claimed to be Arabs thrown off their lands and denied their return. The reality is they were ununiformed combatants, which under the rules of war could have been shot summarily as spies or as terrorists due to being behind the lines of battle and ununiformed. When the armistice was signed, one of the conditions stated in simple terminology was that the closure of the Strait of Tiran to Israeli shipping, thus closing passage through the Aqaba Gulf, is a violation and thus a legitimate casus belli. In 1956 Egypt closed the Strait of Tiran to Israeli shipping as well as the Suez Canal to western passage leading to a state of war between Israel, Britain and France, among potentially others, against Egypt. The three mentioned allied and at the agreed time for initiating actions to relieve these sieges, Britain and France began negotiations while Israel took the Sinai Peninsula and captured an entire Egyptian army. Under extreme threat from President Eisenhower and grumblings from the Soviet Union, Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula and released the trapped Egyptian Army. The armistice from 1956 also stated that closure of the Strait of Tiran to Israeli shipping, thus closing passage through the Aqaba Gulf, is a violation and thus a legitimate casus belli. Further, the Sinai Peninsula was declared to be a demilitarized zone enforced by the United Nations. Egypt placing troops into the Sinai Peninsula was also made a casus belli.

 

That brings us to May of 1967 where Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, responding to a Soviet Union report that Israel was massing troops near the Syrian border, ordered the United Nations peacekeepers out of the Sinai Peninsula, sent Egyptian troops including armored divisions into the Sinai Peninsula, closed the Strait of Tiran and placed the Egyptian army on highest alert. This was in reality three declarations of war against Israel under treaty and International Law. These three were, one, dismissing the United Nations troops, two, placing troops into the Sinai which was double compounded as they included armored troops, three, the closure of the Strait of Tiran. Israel was free to respond to these as if they were actual attacks upon Israeli cities by Egyptian forces. Egypt had already found that the report of Israeli troops massing, or even moving, towards the Syrian border was mere Soviet Union propaganda and the IDF was in a completely passive normal standing doing nothing special. Nasser had started something that he now could not stop or tune down without losing face, something he was loathe to do, thus war was coming no matter what. Nasser, despite gaining treaties of mutual defense with Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia and having had Iraq and Saudi troops already sent into Jordan to await the coming war, was worried about one potential consequence to openly declaring war, the United States intervening. Egypt sent an envoy to Washington D.C. to disarm any American response and informed the waiting allied troops that he would force Israel to strike first which the Egyptians could absorb and still destroy Israel easily. Egypt had figured they would lose at most fifteen percent of their air power and be able to deliver a knockout to the far smaller Israeli Air Force. Nasser added more troops into the Sinai Peninsula and moved them closer to the Israeli border until some reached within sight of the Israeli border. Add in the rhetoric about driving the Jews into the sea and holding the war in Tel Aviv and boasting that Egypt could be in Beersheva within three hours of any Israeli attack, Nasser had boldly stated, “Our path to Palestine will not be covered with a red carpet or with yellow sand. Our path to Palestine will be covered with blood.” Egyptian media released quotes made by Nasser addressing Egyptian pilots after the Egyptian closure of the Strait of Tiran at the southern mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli and Israel-bound shipping stating, “The Gulf of Aqaba constitutes our Egyptian territorial waters. Under no circumstances will we allow the Israeli flag to pass through the Aqaba Gulf.” These were not the words of a leader seeking a peaceful resolution to the situation that he had initiated and now could not stop, and he did not desire even trying to prevent his inevitable war. This was definitely going to be Gamal Abdel Nasser’s great war upon which he would launch his claim to the rightful leadership of the Pan-Arab unified national super-state.

Those of us who have studied recent history or the most stunning victories in warfare, know Israel did finally attack and within three hours they had all but eliminated the Egyptian Air Force and had complete superiority of the air. In an armor war in a dessert, controlling the air is one main definition of victory, and Israel won the air war. Second, Israel attacked the Egyptians where they were not, sending one column of naval commandos down the south side of the Sinai Peninsula to the Strait of Tiran and an amphibious unopposed landing at Sharm el-Sheikh. This combined with armored and fast assault infantry in Armored Personnel Carriers as well as in trucks are all displayed in the map below. The assaults came across every pass through the central mountain spine and was so fast that the Egyptian troops were either struck so violently that they became inoperable or bypassed and cut-off completely and forced to surrender. These Egyptian troops were returned after the end of hostilities, as Israel had no desire to house so many troops. The war was quick and over almost before the world had media there to comment and cover the entire war. Israeli casualties and losses were in total against all fronts which include Syria, Jordan and Egypt, were 776-983 killed, 4,517 wounded, 15 captured, 400 tanks destroyed and 46 aircraft destroyed. Egyptian losses were 10,000-15,000 killed or missing depending on sources, and 4,338 captured. Jordanian losses were 6,000 killed or missing and 533 captured. Syrian losses were 2,500 killed and 591 captured while Iraqi losses were 10 killed and 30 wounded. The losses in armor and aircraft are only able to be estimated with aircraft lost by all Arab forces was approaching five hundred and the total armor lost simply stated as hundreds, many hundreds. Needless to point out, the war was just as one-sided as Gamal Abdel Nasser had predicted the war would be, just not for the side he thought would win in a couple of days, maybe a week.

After the war, there was discussion as to who initiated the war. The United States and Soviet Union actually agreed that it was Israel which had initiated the war. They ignored every single one of Egyptian transgressions which each were a breach of treaties and were each a legitimate casus belli, or in regular English, a legal declaration of war by Egypt upon Israel. These transgressions made any response by Israel to be legal and in defense of her rights under our favorite subject, International Law. What becomes the most malleable item when discussing anything with reference to Israel and her Arabs Neighbors? The answer is International Law. This has been true with dealing with any Arabs, including the Palestinians who have gotten in on the act since 1964 when their declaration was to replace Israel and made no claims on Judea and Samaria (West Bank) or the Gaza Strip as the first was being illegally occupied by Jordan and the other illegally occupied by Egypt. They, as now, only wanted the lands which the Jews were living in, and all of that land just as now. Why does International Law become so difficult to understand and become applied in ways that it would never be applied in any other conflict? Part of the reason is the Arabs and oil plus their ability to almost control the discussion as they can invest hundreds of millions of dollars into the information war which has taken a new front on western college and university campuses. Thus it was little surprise that initially the entire world was screaming that Israel started it, Israel started it! After things quieted down and a more reasoned examination was able to be performed, it became evident that Israel did not start the war. Egypt initiated the conflict. After Israel responded to the Egyptian closure of the Strait of Tiran, ordering the United Nations peacekeepers from the Sinai Peninsula and then the final move of placing troops and then armor into the Sinai Peninsula; these were each the equivalent of a declaration of war. Then Syria leveled artillery from the Golan Heights to which Israel responded taking the Golan Heights in three days of heavy fighting. Jordan did not enter the war until day two and Israel pleaded with Jordan not to join the war explaining that the Egyptian and Syrian broadcasts of their advancing on Tel Aviv were propaganda and the truth was that Israel was advancing on all fronts. Jordan took the Israeli pleading as a sign of weakness and that they truly had to be losing badly and Jordan wanted in on the kill and to take extra lands. This led to their being pushed back across the Jordan River and the change in the PLO and their now claiming they would liberate Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and then the remainder of Israel. Israel responded to the Jordanian attack from their higher placements on the Temple Mount and along the higher ridges overlooking Jerusalem. The Saudi and Iraqi troops attacked, either with Jordan or were left standing with the Egyptians depending on which front they had joined the war. Lebanon played a minor part in the war with their losses existing as a single aircraft, yes, that’s right, a single aircraft. The oddities in the implementation of International Law after the Six Day War making the victim into the aggressor and excusing any and all violations by the Arab nations as excusable while Israel defending herself judged to be illegal gives one a true vision when explaining the same practice of twisting International Law into a corkscrew and worse in order to place all blame away from the Arab states when it comes to matters concerning Israel. You could call the game the blame Israel debacle. But that will be for another day.

Jews Who Are Counter-Productive on Israel

 

The extreme leftist Jews love to protest their self-proclaimed Israeli occupation of Judea and Samaria. You talk to any of them and they will proudly claim that Israel has no desire to pursue peace. They will tell you all about how Israel is illegally occupying Judea and Samaria under International Law. They will go on about how the area of Judea and Samaria are the Palestinians homeland and that Israel must return the lands immediately and stop stalling. They will claim that it is Netanyahu who refuses to meet with Mahmoud Abbas despite any and all evidence to the contrary. And their favorite pastime is protesting Israel loudly and proudly claiming that their Jewishness safeguards them from any charges of anti-Semitism. With their sanctimoniousness, it is difficult to have to deflate their confidence in the complete faultlessness of their arguments. The one thing that is even better is most of the claims in the rest of this article could mostly be applied to virtually all the students protesting Israel with the exception of those instigators and inciters used by NGO’s to lead so many students to protest Israel using pseudo-information that they know are pure propaganda mixed with unadulterated lies with an occasional statistic or fact mixed in for the sake of making everything else credible.

 

One of their points is that Israel took the land in the 1967 war. This they actually have correct. They claim they stole it from the Palestinians who were not even combatants in the war. This is tricky because if there were actually any people by the name of Palestinians at that time, they were not combatants. The problem is there were no Palestinians and the closest thing was the PLO which had no claims to Judea and Samaria but did claim all of Israel within the Green Line and was sworn to defeat the Jews driving them into the Sea to drown or killing them where they stood. The area of Judea and Samaria at the time between 1948 and the Six Day War was occupied; let us get this straight, that is occupied illegally, by Jordan. Jordan took control of this land during the War to Annihilate the Jews fought by over a half dozen Arab Armies against Israel starting on the morning of her birth. Jordan held half of Jerusalem and the areas of Judea and Samaria which was part of the guaranteed areas west of the Jordan River which were to be the State of Israel after an agreement reached with the British upon allowing the formation of the Arab State of Jordan. Jordan illegally annexed the land and their action was recognized by only two nations, Britain and Pakistan. After the attempt at destroying Israel by the judgement of the Peel Commission, Britain trying to help destroy Israel at every turn is quite believable (see map below). Fortunately, the Peel Commission was rejected, as was the annexation by Jordan. Even the Arab and Muslim world outside of Pakistan rejected their annexation. Also, in the War to Annihilate Israel which raged on and off through 1948-9, Egypt gained control over Gaza though they never attempted to annex the land. Jordan and Egypt both threw all the Jews from their homes and lands and Jordan went further and gifted land to many Jordanians of presumed merit though most never utilized these lands. This was a means of removing all Jewish claims to the lands. The Jordanians also illegally forced numerous Jordanian citizens to relocate onto the lands they illegally held against International Law and gave Jordanian citizenship to all Arabs living in the area. These are truths that these protesters ignore likely because they were never educated in history and were never curious enough to seek the truth themselves.

These wonderful and wide-eyed leftists right out or still incubated in college or university take on complete faith their professors tales of the crimes committed by Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers which are just as big of lies as was Mahmoud Abbas trying to pass the Palestinian incitement of which he personally has taken the lead as educating their children in peace to President Trump, a lie which has been revealed using Abbas and his own words. What their professors never taught their young charges was Jewish history and the Twelve Tribes of Israel and that Israel held both sides of the Jordan River and for her northern border she had the Litani River which is inside Lebanon today and holds the Hezballah terrorist army between the Litany River and the Blue Line, the Israeli northern border with Lebanon (see map below). The Tribes of Israel included the best snow skiing in the Middle East on Mount Hermon and the medicinal waters of the Dead Sea. The Golan Heights and the Kinneret were all within her borders. What do these snowflakes from University know of this history? Probably little or nothing.

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

 

Israel is not reluctant to make peace. Israel offered to give Judea and Samaria back to their illegal occupiers, Jordan, when the two nations reached their peace just as she had offered to return Gaza to Egypt and both refused, as there was an Arab plan to hatch. That plan was to invent a new Arab people called the Palestinians who were going to claim that they had a history in the lands. Inspect their claims and then read the Jewish history and you do not have to take modern Israelis view, read the Old Testament, the Torah (Five Books of Moses) as well as the rest of the Bible which includes Kings and Prophets and Judges. Read the entirety of the Jewish history written in the time in which it was made by those who lived and saw it in real time. The Israelite, the Jews, beginning in these lands came when Joshua crossed the Jordan and sacked Jericho, defeated five armies at Ai and then conquered the south and began the conquest of the north which had to be left for those who followed to complete, but the promise was kept and Hashem laid the land open before the Jewish People and they swelled within. Saul was anointed King and then David ruled and then Solomon who built the First Temple and the lands flourished. But it all started when they crossed the Jordan River and Joshua led the Army into the lands and began the defeat of the Canaanites, not the Arabs by any name and especially not any Palestinian Arabs who Abbas or another official once claimed lived in the lands nine thousand years ago. Well, then the Canaanites must have driven them out as they were not present for Joshua to conquer when he entered the lands just over three-thousand-five-hundred years ago, that is around 1489 BCE, in case you were wondering. (His route to the conquest of the holy Lands and the start of the nation in the Promised Lands can be seen in the map below.) The history is quite remarkable and probably a far easier and more interesting read than your chemistry books and mathematics books, at least as I remember them from my days back in the stone age.

The realty is quite a bit different, as the area known as Judea and Samaria belonged to Israel under International Law and was illegally occupied by Jordan from 1948 up until the Six Day War; Israel did not conquer the area as Israel liberated lands that belong to Israel from Jordanian occupation. The Arabs residing in the area were holding Jordanian passports and identifications and were citizens of Jordan which meant that by International Law Israel could have made them relocate back into their country which had forced many to move into these lands; they legally could, and maybe should, have sent them back into Jordan. Having sent them all into Jordan immediately and reclaiming what was legally Israel would have saved Israel all the headaches they have faced ever since. The reason that Israel did not relocate the Arabs was simple; Israel is not a normal nation but a nation of people who are supposed to lead by showing the world a better face for humanity, a better way of treating one another, simply to be a light unto the nations. Unfortunately, Israel is located in an area where civility is seen as weakness and mercy as a form of surrender. Israel’s enemies know that the Jews are not a cruel people and use this against Israel. The professors in the universities know the youngsters in their charge are neophytes as far as historical knowledge and that their words are unquestioned by their students and thus they use them as their personal weapon against what they believe is the greatest evil in the world today, their own nation. As leftists, they cannot help but find that religious people are inherently evil and unthinking and all the things they despise most. This is why they tell lies about Israel and the Jewish People, their own people. Their little charges will grow as they enter the world and meet people with different perspectives and more knowledge which was not provided back in all their years of schooling, which is why it is known as the College of Hard Knocks in which I am working on my doctorate and that takes a lifetime. Learn whose land it was under International Law before you decide that someone is breaking International Law because when it comes to Israel, the world is attempting to coop and break International Law day in and day out, and they are doing so against their favorite people to blame for all their own ills, the Jewish People. Again, read history throughout the ages and remember the admonition we received from the All Knowing, in every generation there will be one to rise up against you. The one was not a person as much as an enemy, and this time the one is everyone and they have used you. Learn history, learn International Law, learn from the sages through the ages, and learn about the Jewish People and when you have learned a lifetime of learning, then we can talk. Learn, most important of all, on your own and trust very few, just the few who have proven that they will not lie to you and are not going to candy coat the truth even if that truth is difficult to swallow and goes against everything you think you know. First, test what everyone says by seeking out those who hold the opposite opinion and then check each one’s sources. The first we would recommend is the Bible as it holds a few thousand years of knowledge in a single book with some tremendous stories which will amaze you.
