Inside the Head of Mahmoud Abbas, His Mind and His Concept of Peace

 

Mahmoud Abbas has two items in his mind, his definition of a just peace and keeping the cash flowing into his and his family’s pockets. He has a great gig going as he simply refuses to accept any peace which permits the Jewish State to continue while knowing that as long as he holds out, there will be an enormous cash flow from which he diverts his unfair share. Israel has nobody to blame but their own errors in expecting that the PLO could be reformed and reach a lasting peace with Israel. These conclusions were in straight defiance of the things claimed by Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him. They spoke of conquering all of Palestine in stages making a peace and then breaking it demanding more land after each time. But peace is the last thing on Mahmoud Abbas’s mind as he is making off great raking in the slimmed funds right off the top of the monies from the EU, the UN and until recently, the United States and numerous other nations in Europe and the Middle East. Abbas can travel anywhere in the world freely and be received as an honored guest often shown far more respect that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would receive visiting the same places and people. Mahmoud Abbas sits in the catbird seat almost invulnerable to any accusation for he has been crowned by the EU, UN, numerous NGO’s, several UN Agencies, politicians near and far as the peacemaker and the sole promise for the Middle East. No title has ever been less appropriate.

 

There has been one central pillar to Mahmoud Abbas and his vision of peace, namely that President Trump and his Deal of the Century and anything else President Trump cares to present will be dead on arrival. Abbas has sworn to refuse any and everything proposed by President Trump. After all, is not refusing to consider any peace proposal how one becomes the peacemaker? But still Mahmoud Abbas has declared that he is open to any just peace which he defines as receiving his 22% of the British Mandate lands. Check the map below which depicts the British Mandate and the intended division as per treaties and conventions including being enforceable by the UN according to Article 80 of their Charter. This division gave 78% of the British Mandate lands to the Arabs as the country of Transjordan, subsequently changed to simply Jordan, and 22% for the Jewish State of Israel with the Jordan River as their border. This is the 22% Abbas is referencing when he claims he is ready for a just peace where he receives his rightful 22% of the British Mandate lands. He is referencing all of Israel as denoted in the 1964 original PLO Charter where they laid no claims to the West Bank under Jordanian rule or Gaza under Egyptian occupation but their claim was the rest of Palestine, simply all of Israel. Their claim has not changed, they just increased the size of what they demand to include what is today all of Israel. This is the demand of the man they title peacemaker and laud him wherever he goes in Europe, the United Nations and much of the developing world where he is viewed as some form of hero.

As recently noted, but worth another stating, the PLO has decided that no Arab has the right to leave their region seeking to make a new start anywhere else. They are holding their population as hostages just as they did to the Arabs who obeyed the Mufti’s order for them to come behind the Arab lines such that the soon to be conquering Arab armies could simply shoot everyone they found. When the conquering Arab armies failed to conquer quite as well as planned, they took the occupied regions of Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank) and locked the Arabs who trusted them to win annihilating the Jews into camps to be used as bartering chips claiming all of the land of Israel. This is the true origins of the vast majority of the Arab refugees who they claim were cleansed when they were called out by the Mufti of Jerusalem and they obeyed and such is their reward. Theirs is to await the final redemption of the lands from the Jewish usurpers. When the Arab world delivers on the promise of the Mufti, the total destruction of the Jewish State and the cleansing the region of everything Jewish, then these refugees in the camps are presumed to be permitted to return and enjoy the spoils, that was the original promise. As far as the world is concerned, these Arabs are the sole refugees from this conflict completely ignoring the over 800,000 Jews forced to flee the Middle East and North Africa who largely made Aliyah and came home to Israel. These Jews as well as those from Ethiopia and India amongst other remote locations, put to a lie the claim that all of Israel is made up of European Jews. Granted, European and North American Jews make up almost 18%, while Russian Jews make up another 16%, plus African and Asian Jews are just over 25%, while lastly the native-born Jews in Israel make up 39% of the Jewish population (see table below). With the rising anti-Semitism seemingly being world-wide, one can expect even more Jews making Aliyah and coming home if for no other reason, Israel will take them while the rest of the world would rather not touch them.

But as far as Mahmoud Abbas is concerned, there was no Jewish history anywhere in the Middle East, all Jews come from New York, Los Angeles, London and the other major cities in Europe and North America. Judaism, to Abbas, is a religion and not a people or any group with a rightful claim to have lands anywhere like Islam which is the only form of rule suitable for planet Earth. You see, Mahmoud Abbas is a Muslim and thus believes that the world is broken into two regions, Dar al-Islam, the world under Sharia and thus peaceful and good, and Dar al-Harb, the world to be conquered by Islam and thus the world of war where evils are to be conquered and purified by Islam. This is behind his inability to allow or accept to grasp the idea of the Jews having their own state. Jews are to be hounded and chased from place to place never feeling safe or secure and without normative rights and definitely no privileges. The Medina Quranic verses are not very favorable towards Jews. The Medina Quran was written after the Meccan Quran and thus its verses overrule the earlier ones under the concept of Abrogation. A brief description of the two Quranic writings can be viewed here. There is no concept of any Jewish state despite all of the evidence, something the PLO and the Waqf have both attempted to destroy by digging presumably new water pipes on the Temple Mount leaving tons of dumped and broken pieces of Jewish history which is sifted through by a team of dedicated workers. They deny any and everything found linking the Jews to the land such as this recent find in Shiloh. And as far as the Jews returning to the lands from whence, they came, does this include the return of the properties of the Jews exiled from the Islamic world?

 

If anyone is ever planning on reaching some form of peace, currently the best method would be to grant every Arab the choice to emigrate to another country after receiving a generous payment for all properties and a relocation bonus which could be quite a handsome amount. This was the plan presented numerous times throughout the history of Israel and somehow it always gets ignored. It would be ideal if somebody were to overrule Hamas and the PLO and provide protection for those who desired to take the offer for relocation such that they could leave in safety and in an orderly manner. Such an offer cannot be enforced by Israel simply because the world would rise up with great indignation claiming this was just another form of ethnic cleansing when it is actually the second half of relocating those on the wrong side of the agreed upon borders. There were over 800,000 Jews exiled from the Arab and Islamic world and this would be the second half where the Arab refugees are accepted into the Arab world just as Israel took in the exiled and instant refugee Jews. But then we run into the same problem, Israel is not treated like any other nation. For Israel, her decisions must be approved by the rest of the world simply because the world has claimed the right to instruct Israel in what she may and may not perform. This is simply refusing to solve a problem which will only end in one means, a war where the casualties are unimaginable as should the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah and Iran continue on their present course, they will educate their populations steeped in hatred of Jews and Israel specifically and then have a general attack by the populations rising up. This would consist of the Arab population of the PLO area, Gaza and southern Lebanon aided by IRGC and Iranian units in Syria all attacking Israel with rockets and literal waves of civilians surging across the borders in an effort to displace the Jews. When these waves are intercepted, then the EU, UN and the rest of the chorus will raise their voices decrying the offense to humanity. But they are the ones forcing this inevitability upon Israel, and just as bad, upon the Arab population and largely its youth as this human wave attack will be populated. Allow the Arabs to freely decide whether they wish to live under Israeli rule west of the Jordan River or wish to be bought out and given a substantial investment in their relocation aiding them and making them desirable to other nations. This or the final fight will one day come and the world will wonder how such a thing could happen, and they will be shocked and feign innocence. And that claim of innocence is the last straw which will forever break their credibility, as if they have all that much now.

Israel Should Just Claim All of Her Lands

 

We have noted an unfortunate new means by which the elites fresh from university interpret the past. Anything which occurred more than a few decades past is ignored as history is just so boring and unnecessary. The new elites believe they have all the answers whether they have the necessary information or not. This becomes astonishingly easy to see whenever the discussion comes around to Israel. Our new elites, who within a decade will be running the United States Congress, are already in control of the European Union (EU). Because of their belief that whatever they feel is the truth and there is little if any requirement that historical references be included in their decision-making process; they can draw any conclusion and demand that it is valid. There is a simple means of debunking and revealing the ignorance of these new elites. Simply ask them if they are familiar with the San Remo Conference or the borders decided upon under the British Mandate. Another two questions will complete any display of their gross ignorance. First, ask them how the majority of Arabs came to live within what was reserved for the Jewish State. Second, ask them how the majority of Arabs became refugees in the separate refugee camps which have grown as new generations are born and granted refugee status because they were born in the refugee camps. Just for fun, ask these wunderkinds if there are any other refugees anywhere in the world where their children and their children’s children henceforth and forever into the future with no end are also considered to be refugees. Small hint, the answer is no. If you have any knowledge about the history behind the formation of the Jewish State going back to shortly before World War I and specifically the treaties and agreements made after World War I, then the answers from these coming leaders of America, Europe and the rest of the Western World will be quite amusing in the depth of their ignorance. History is no longer taught honestly but instead the facts are modified to fit the concepts and political beliefs of the professors who teach these classes. This leads to extremely slanted presentation of facts omitting those facts which run counter to the new, anti-Western, anti-white-male and anti-Judeo-Christian ethos where the majority of their professors actually also believe, their concept which they believe to be fact, that White-Privilege has a sub set which is the most despised of all those with White-Privilege. That special qualification for scorn belongs to what they call the Super-Whites which they define as the Jewish People. This was made blatantly obvious with the Anti-Semitic Flier used on Campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago to advertise a protest with speakers condemning White-Privilege and specifically Jewish domination of the economic top positions (see flyer below). This has also been behind the riotous protests shouting down any pro-Israel speaker or any conservative attempting to present their information. Their information must be prevented from being introduced simply because their positions are not in line with the leftist-elites who control who is permitted to present their information and who is prevented from speaking. There is no longer any room for debate, either you agree with the far left or you are not to be permitted to present your side as you might present facts which run counter to the political slant taught by the professors from the ivory towers of academia.

The modern claim is that the Jews invaded the Middle East after World War II and the Europeans backed them as an apology for the Holocaust and because if the Jew established a homeland outside of Europe, then the Europe would have somewhere for their Jews to escape from their rising anti-Semitism, which is just fine with the Europeans as they wish to be rid of their Jews. The Jews presumably built Israel over the top of the country of Palestine. Presumably, there were no Jews residing in what was historic Israel until after World War II and all the Jews arrived miraculously in 1948 where they went from being completely alien to the region to the evicting force depriving Arabs of their own lands. There are a few glaring and important problems with this new history. First, the new history has absolutely no anchor in the real history and is simply pasted together from what has been taught, especially in colleges and universities which have a Middle East department financed by Arab nations or Iran. The new history begins around the year 725 AD and anything and everything which came before is irrelevant and has no applicable influence on the modern world. According to the new history there never was a Jewish State, no Israelites, no Exodus, no King David or Solomon and further, the Jews never ever had their own country and do not deserve to have one today, specifically not in the Middle East. This is history taught from the Islamic view of the world. According to the Islamic history, history only begins in any region once they come under rule by Muslims and Sharia. Rule under any other system, such as democracies, republics, parliamentary governance or anything where the people are free to worship as they please and people are considered equal must be replaced. Under Sharia, those who are not Islamic are second class citizens permitted to live because of the protections provided by their Islamic superiors. For this privilege, non-Muslims pay a tax called the Jizya which is often utilized to extract all the wealth possible from the non-Muslims and used to promote Islam. Holy buildings and monuments which are not Islamic are not permitted to be repaired nor are new structures permitted except in rare instances where the Islamic leaders permit such building to take place, a very rare occurrence. More often than not, the Islamic rulers will take ownership of the churches, synagogues, temples and other religious places and transform them into Mosques or community centers reserved for Muslims and the disseminating of Islamic supremacy over all other religions. Muslims believe that Islam is the sole true religion which was guaranteed by Allah to rule the world and become the only religion on the face of the planet. These Middle East departments are steeped in such propaganda and this is what they disseminate with a heavy amount of assistance by the leftist professors who have a deep-seated hatred for Judeo-Christianity and the history of the Western World which they believe was deeply flawed and have accepted the Islamic view of their history as being peaceful and far more advanced than Western civilization where people are granted greater respect. The truth of the history is it is actually filled with wars, violence, assassination of leaders and all the same violence and hatred as was ever found within Western society.

 

Islamic history is all about conquest. Their history began approximately in the early seventh century around 622 in the Arabic Peninsula, where almost every Arab and Muslim resided. By the year 750 they had conquered all of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) spreading into Spain, India, Afghanistan and what today is Turkey. There is a mainstay concept within Islam where the world is divided into two camps, Dar al-Harb and Dar al-Islam, also referred to by Muslims as the World of War and the World of Peace. Dar al-Islam is the world of peace as these are the lands where Islam rules without challenge while Dar al-Harb is the world of war as these are the lands which have yet to fall under the sway of Islam. The Muslims believe that any and all lands which have ever come under Islamic rule must remain under Islam rule into perpetuity. Islam continues to refer to Spain and Portugal as Andalusia, the name these lands were given when Islamic forces crossed Gibraltar and conquered much of the Iberian Peninsula reaching as far as Tours, France where they were defeated by Charles the Hammer Martel. This is also the root of the problem when it comes to Israel as the Arab Muslims had conquered the Holy Lands eventually defeating the Crusaders from Europe holding these lands until the defeat of the Austria-Hungarian Empire, German Empire and Ottoman Empire by Britain, France, Italy, Russia, Japan and the United States in World War I.

After World War I, the maps of the world changed drastically with the fall of the largest empires around the Mediterranean Sea. We often hear that only the Middle East was forced to have new borders and nations forced upon them by Europeans. Well, that is what happens when one is on the losing side of a war. The reality is Europe was also completely redrawn (see map below). With the redrawing of the map of Europe we had the birth of Poland amongst a few other new nations. The move after World War I was to return lands to their indigenous peoples which is why Poland, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania, Latvia and Yugoslavia were brought forth onto the map of Europe. The Middle East and Northern Africa went from being unified under the Ottoman Turks into numerous separate nations. The Europeans drew the new borders with little regard for existing tribal regions. If anything, the Europeans drew the maps of the MENA region more with the intent of permanent instability as they mixed tribes, many who had strong animosity for one another, into a single nation where unrest could only be contained under strong leadership. This was why these nations were all led by dictators who used brutality to suppress any divisions. Then there is Israel which is a whole different story.

Israel was first brought onto the map during the San Remo Conference which addressed the claim of the Jewish People to their ancient homelands. Originally, the Jewish State was proposed to be the entirety of the British Mandate. After San Remo there were a number of treaties which tied the allies from World War I behind the formation of a Jewish State. The frightening truth is within a couple of years, the Europeans in general and the British in particular, after the San Remo Conference much of Europe was seeking some means of preventing the Jewish State. The British, who were tasked with assisting in getting the Jewish State off the ground, took the first swipe, and it was huge. The British approached the Zionist Congress, a group with no military and in the weakest of positions, and proposed that they permit the British to use part of the Mandate Lands for an Arab State such that they could complete their promise to King Faisal granting his other son with a nation. The British formed an Arab State under Hashemite rule using the Jordan River as the dividing line between the Arab State and the Jewish State. This meant that 78% of the British Mandate was now the Arab State of Transjordan, later renamed simply Jordan, leaving a mere 22% of the Mandate lands for the Jewish State. Then, in order to prevent the Jews gaining the high ground, the British gifted the Golan Heights to the French under the French Mandate with the intent and eventual expectation of giving the Golan Heights to the Syrians and taking it from the Jews. But this was far from the end of British perfidy. The British worked with the Arab League to relocate Arabs from Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and elsewhere throughout the Arab world from their homes in these countries moving them to Israel preventing the Jews ever becoming a majority. The British continued this travesty until mere months before they finally left the region leaving it up to the world to untangle.

 

The United Nations (UN) presented General Assembly Resolution 181 as their suggestion as to how to peaceably end the growing conflict between the Jews and the Arabs which had been initiated and stoked by the British for decades. The UN Resolution divided the area west of the Jordan River, 22% of the British Mandate lands, in half with 11% of the Mandate lands for each side, the Jews and the Arabs. Despite much of the land set aside as for the Jews being the Negev Desert and the prime farmlands being granted to the Arabs, the Jews led by the Zionist Congress accepted this solution but the Arab League refused to accept the offer instead planning to eradicate Israel as soon as it was to be born. The British prepared to depart as their Mandate was to be terminated at midnight of May14, 1948. Israel declared her independence the evening before and rightfully became a nation at the moment the British left. Before leaving, the British searched numerous Jewish communities confiscating any and all weapons they found and gave them to Arab militias they knew were planning on attacking the Jews the next morning. The morning of May 15, 1948, the Jewish state of Israel was born and immediately came under attack by several Arab nations and forces including Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen along with forces under the Mufti of Jerusalem. Further, Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini had been returned from Berlin where he spent most of World War II, when he was not reviewing the Islamic Nazi units in the Balkans, so that he could unite the Arabs. The British and Arab League, as well as the economic conditions of the Jewish State being better than their surrounding countries, had spread Arabs throughout the Jewish State into a force which could attack the Jewish forces from behind their lines and break supply lines. It was these actions which forced Israel to force a number of Arab communities across the lines to the Arab side as when any community permitted ambushes of Jewish forces, they were deported. These Arabs were a minority, a small minority, of the Arabs who had left Israel and taken refuge behind the Arab armies as the vast majority of these Arabs came in response to the pledges by Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini that the Jews would be defeated and exterminated within a couple of weeks at most and then they could share in the spoils of the Jews.

 

When the fighting finally ended in 1949, the Arabs had not completely defeated the Jewish State and the Jews still held to most of their lands. The Egyptians ended up occupying Gaza and Jordan was occupying the Shomron, parts of Judea and Samaria which they renamed West Bank including half of Jerusalem while the remainder of the Israeli borders remained unchanged. What need be remembered is that the borders of Israel as per the final agreements and treaties were the border called the Blue Line in the north with Lebanon, the Golan Heights with Syria, the Negev-Sinai border with Egypt and the Jordan River with Jordan. But after the initial war between the Arabs and Israel, Gaza and Shomron were left under Arab occupation. Jordan annexed their occupied lands and forced many thousands of Jordanians to relocate into these occupied regions. This condition remained unchanged until the Six Day War in June of 1967, which was initiated by Egypt when they closed the Strait of Tiran to Israeli shipping, a casus belli for war which was part of the agreement reached after the Suez Crisis of 1956. During the Six Day War, Israel liberated both Gaza from Egypt and the Shomron from Jordan as well as occupying the Sinai Peninsula. Then in October 1973, the Arabs once again attempted to destroy Israel and after some initial success, the Arabs were then forced back and were losing even more lands. IDF troops were closing on Damascus, Cairo and Alexandria when the United States joined Russia and the United Nations and most of Europe demanding that Israel return to the lines where the Six Day War had ended and not enter Damascus, Cairo or Alexandria. Israel, realizing she had little hope of opposing the combined demands by so many that the IDF was ordered to return to the Israel side of the Suez Canal and return to the Golan Heights leaving Jordan.

 

That should be sufficient history. The question comes to exactly who are the occupying people in Israel. There have been Jews residing in Israel since the Exodus mostly in and around Jerusalem, the Galilee, Hevron, Shechem and numerous other Biblical cities and settlements. There have also been some Arabs who have resided within what became Israel as well before 1850. Why did we say 1850? That is approximately the date when the Zionist returning to Israel was initiated and the first Jews returning to their ancestral lands. These Jews drained swamps ridding the region of the problem of malaria, cleared fields of boulders, built the waterworks and irrigation systems for the farmlands. This caused an economic boon which attracted some Arabs from neighboring lands seeking employment. After World War I and the San Remo Conference, the British took responsibility for aiding the formation of the Jewish State. The British had the strangest means of assisting the Jews forming their state as almost every move was designed to undermine the Jews from becoming a majority by forcefully bringing Arabs into the lands to the point that it almost crashed the economy which was unable of employing all of the incoming Arabs. Then, after World War II, the British did all they could from the start of the war until they left on May 15, 1948, of restricting and all but ending Jewish emigration to Israel.

 

But it was the decade after Israel was founded that the Jews became a comfortable majority. It was over this period that most of the Arab and Islamic world in the MENA region expelled almost all if not all of their Jews. Just as the world refused to allow Jews to escape the Nazis by closing their borders, they did exactly the same unless Jews had passports, thus virtually all of these Jews had but one location willing to take them in and do so gladly and with open arms, Israel. This was not because Israel was so economically well off that they could absorb what became more than half of the Jewish population of the nascent state of Israel. These Jews from the Arab and Islamic Worlds became almost half of the total population of Israel numbering over 800,000 Jews. Incorporating this influx of people strained the Israeli economy almost to its breaking-point, but things eventually worked out and the economy in Israel began to take off in the early 1970’s never looking back. This brings us to the question, who are the occupiers and whose lands does the region west of the Jordan River actually legally belong. The honest answer is that these lands all belong to Israel. In almost every other situation where after a war, borders change and part of another nationality finds themselves on the wrong side of the new border, these people are moved back within their former country’s lands. This would have meant the Arab population of Gaza would have had to move into the Sinai Peninsula under Egyptian rule and the Arabs in the Shomron would have been relocated into Jordan. This would have required the Arab World to absorb almost the same numbers of Arabs as Israel had taken in Jews from the Arab and Islamic Worlds. When the borders of Poland were formed after World War I, thousands of German citizens were relocated into Germany as they were unwelcomed by the Polish authorities and people. When India and Pakistan were formed, one for the Hindus and Buddhists with the other for the Muslims, hundreds of millions of people moved in mass migrations from one nation to the other. There was much violence during this transfer of people marring the hopes for a peaceful transfer of populations. This transfer of Arabs to their original homelands would not be accompanied by the same violence seen between India and Pakistani populations during their relocation.

 

This resettling has even been approached where the Arabs desiring to leave would be given a relocation stipend assisting their settling in their new home and also making these Arabs more desirable for other nations to invite them to settle within their borders. Such an offer would be presented to the Arabs residing on Gaza and the Shomron and could even be offered to those Arabs within Israel with Israeli citizenship, thus freeing every Arab within the borders assigned Israel in the 1920’s under San Remo and the agreement with the divide of the British Mandate along the Jordan River. This idea has gained some credibility with rumors that President Trump’s Deal of the Century might offer Arabs funds allowing them to relocate anywhere in the world where they can start a new life. This has caused the Palestinian Authority (PA) to make a law forbidding any Arab from leaving and relocating in another country. Hamas has already closed their borders refusing to permit their population from seeking a new life elsewhere. This means that both Arab governing bodies, Hamas in Gaza and the PA in the Shomron, have taken steps to prevent resettlement as being permitted to be used as a settlement of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. The reality is the Arab leadership does not desire any peace settlement with Israel. By their own word they do not desire their own state, they simply desire the destruction of Israel and the Jews exterminated from what they insist is their land. This is the driving sentiment behind the Gaza border riots where incendiary devices have been launched into Israel burning down fields of crops, forests, wildlife preserves and some homes and businesses. This is the driving concept behind the PA and their “pay to slay” policy where terrorists and their families are guaranteed payments for perpetuity, and these payments are far above the average salary of PA Arabs (see table below). These payments are derived from the numbers of Israelis murdered and injured as well as other considerations. With rampant unemployment, this “pay to slay” system has enticed many a young Arab to choose terrorist acts in place of seeking all but impossible job opportunities. Mahmoud Abbas has also made clear that if funds are short and after the elites take their cut of any funds, the first payments will go to the terrorists and their families before they pay the PA employees. The PA employees have already had their salaries cut claiming that funds are less than past times. The blame for this supposed lack of funds is, of course, President Donald Trump as he cut funds to the PA and completely ended payments to UNRWA. The reality is the EU and many European countries along with the UN and Arab World have supposedly made up for the difference caused by President Trump and his actions.

The final solution of the Arab Israeli Conflict will not come from payments for relocating the Arab populations as their leadership would rather shoot their own people rather than allow them to relocate. The Arab leadership is literally holding their populations as virtual prisoners of the conflict and eventual ammunition with which to destroy Israel. When the only solution one side insists and demands is the eradication of the other side, there can be no peaceful resolution to such a conflict other than the eradication of one side or the other. The best-case solution which could be imposed to seek peace would be to remove the terror leadership of Gaza and the Shomron and then offer a relocation renumerations which includes payment for any properties owned and additional funding to make their relocation as easy and even enriching as is comfortably possible. With the promise of the world kicking in $50 billion to assist economic development of the Palestinian areas, which will fail just as gloriously as every previous attempt to kick-start the Palestinian economy which is hampered by rampant and constant embezzlement of funds, might best be used to build a mega-city where the Arabs could be relocated with jobs waiting and housing available which was part of one of the rumors of what President Trump would be working towards. Such a plan would only face one problem, that the leadership will go to any extreme to block anybody being relocated as without their people, they would have no more millions of dollars coming their way month after month. This is unfortunate as with Iran backing Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezballah, while seeking to also take over the PA, and Iran seeking a conflict with Israel where they claim they will eradicate the Jewish State, a war may be inevitable. The Ayatollahs often refer to Israel as a one bomb state, something which is only valid if one has nuclear weapons, something we suspect Iran had a fair number as part of their weapons stores. Iran may start the final Arab-Israeli war while also attacking American interests in the Middle East which could start a war that escalates into the final world war. It would be so much in the interests of the world to resettle the Arabs and finally recognize the promises the world made to Israel of her eastern border being the Golan Heights and Jordan River. Remove the terror masters and solutions would become available, but how to remove the terror masters. When Israel targets the terror masters, the one thing we can guarantee is that the EU and UN would lead the chorus deploring the horrible acts the Israelis are resorting to by targeting the terror masters. Even nations who have used targeted assassination against terrorism themselves still denounce Israel having the right to using the same tactic. Another case of do what we say, not what we do where Israel is singled out for treatment never considered for any other nation. Israel, according to the overly pompous denouncers of everything Israel, must fight with her hands tied behind her back and never be permitted that which any other nation would consider appropriate actions to solve problems because Israel is the Jewish State which means it is held to a completely unique and unprecedented set of restrictions. We remember the last Gaza war where one of the reporters actually asked an Israeli Knesset Minister why there were so few dead Jews, then she quickly said, I mean Israelis. The truth had slipped her mouth giving a perfect view of what too many think when they say Israel, that what they mean is that state of the Jews. Without the world obsessing over everything Israel, the Arab Israeli Conflict would likely have already been resolved as the funds required for the terror operations would have dried up and there would be no cash flowing in to be stolen by the leadership before permitting a pathetic amount to dribble down to the normal people. That would be the fastest way to resolve this conflict, stop funding terrorists just because they are targeting Jews, or the Jewish State for those who desire a more polite means for saying the same thing.

Are Iranian Threats for Real?

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:54 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

If the Iranian threats are real, then what should or even can the rest of the world do to prepare? Iran regularly threatens Israel both from Tehran and out of Lebanon using Hezballah and Islamic Jihad and Hamas out of Gaza. Iran also is almost as consistent in threatening the United States from rallies in Tehran. We realize that part of the reason for these rallies where “Death to Israel, death to America” is because it is chanted most often on Friday afternoon after services. The problem is that the Western World measures the Iranian actions according to Western Judeo-Christian ethics expecting that they would be reasonable and negotiations would serve to mitigate any differences. The real problem is that the Western World has given up completely on any single nation conquering the Earth. What the West is missing out on is that the rest of the world has not given up on world conquest. Iran definitely believes that they will conquer the world and force Shia Islam onto the entire population using threats of convert or death. This is an intricate part of the philosophy encased in the Quran where Allah has promised that Islam will rule the entire planet and force the world to convert to Islam. What it does not tell is whether Shia Islam or Sunni Islam will be the version which will conquer the world. But the one thing which matters is that both Sunni and Shia Muslims believe that they are to be the eventual conquerors of Earth.

 

Iran is not the only nation which believes they should conquer the world and place all humankind under their rule. These nations are not democratic nations and instead choose dictatorial leaders who rule absolutely. Hamas’s original charter specified that once they destroyed Israel, they would then take their Islamic revolution to the rest of the world and genocidally murder every Jew everywhere on Earth before forcing all to convert to Islam. The Islamic State at their most powerful also insisted that they were chosen to conquer the world for Islam. The same can be stated about al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and numerous other Islamic leaders. Then there is the Communist threat which China poses as they intend to spread their form of governance. These are just scratching the surface as who knows where the next threat might arise just as we likely never anticipated ISIS before they exploded on the scene and conquered an area the size of many nations and far larger than Israel. The Western World will be required to wake to the threat which is most ascendant at the current time, and that threat is Iran. Much of the Sunni Islamic world currently appear to be satisfied to currently wait for a future period to rise to take the world. What it would require would be a charismatic leader who could unite the entirety of the Sunni Islam into a single power. Shia Islam has already been set to be unified under Iran as they control Iraqi Shia, Yemenis Shia, Syrian Shia and Lebanese Shia in what many refer to as the Shiite Crescent (see map below). This is the spread of IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and even Iranian regular army. Iran is also utilizing Hezballah in Syria and Yemen as well as threatening Israel from Lebanon.

Their control of Yemen, which has not been completed, places Iranian aligned forces surrounding Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Iran is in control of the Strait of Hurmuz and with Yemen they control the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait. This provides them with the ability to threaten the oil shipments from the Middle East and shut the Suez Canal by closing off the mouth of the Red Sea. Iran has taken strategic points to control which could easily lead to an isolated Europe cut off from Asia, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Islands. If one were planning to conquer the world using Iran as the central force, this would be the exact tactics which could set up such a threat becoming reality. Iran appears to be waiting for Europe to become overrun by Islamic “refugees” who will refuse to assimilate and instead insist that their religion be granted absolute rule. Then, Iran hopes that if they are able to destroy or conquer Israel or Saudi Arabia that this will influence the majority of Muslims to change from Sunni to Shia Islam. Iran has already laid out their plan for the conquest of Saudi Arabia and the removal of the Saudi Royal Family which the Iranian leaders claim are apostates. Their intent would be to attack the northeastern oil fields which has a majority Shia population while attacking from Yemen taking Mecca and Medina, the Two Holy Cities. This would remove the mystic which the Saudi Royal Family use to remain in power, namely their oil money to bribe the Wahabi clerics and they would lose their title as protectors of the holy cities which would, according to Iran, steal from the Saudi Royals their main pillars of support which could lead to serious opposition from the Saudi population.

The Iranian leadership will not remain patient forever and eventually they will launch attacks either at Saudi Arabia, Israel or the United States and any combination thereof. But there is one item which the Iranian Mullahs ignore at their own peril, or so we can all pray. The average Persian citizen largely go through the motions of following Shia Islam while many also follow the Persian religion of Zoroastrianism, at least according to Amil Imani in a recent article. This provides an opportunity for the Western World to assist the Iranians who attempted to challenge the Mullahs but were basically sold down the river by President Obama as he desired making an agreement through which he could guarantee that Iran becomes a nuclear armed nation but not until he will have left office. This was the Green Revolution of 2009. Should the Iranian people rise up against their theocratic dictatorial governance where the actual leadership decide who are permitted to run for office making sure that the government will always behave properly and fully support everything the Mullahs, and specifically the Supreme Leader and Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. For those who hold out hope that when a new Supreme Leader is chosen when Ali Khamenei passes will be more moderate, allow us to point out that every politician the West believed were moderates would fall in line behind the Supreme Leaders and enforce his every whim. Ali Khamenei is simply following the exact political plans which originated with the former Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini who initiated the Iranian revolution of 1979 with the blessings of President Jimmy Carter who claimed that as a cleric, Ruhollah Khomeini would be a man of peace and was the first American politician to claim that Islam was the religion of peace.

 

Perhaps some of the State Department leadership need to read the Quran, realize that the Medina Quran has overruled the peaceful beliefs of the Meccan Quran. Islam divides the world into two worlds, Dar al Islam, where Islam had established rule and is thus to be considered a world at peace, and Dar al-Harb, the world of war which has yet to be conquered by Islam. That is the reality which the world is simply standing around twiddling their thumbs waiting for Iran to obtain a sizable nuclear armaments with missiles capable of delivering them anywhere on the planet, and even then, the West will wait for Iran to pick and choose when and where they wish to initiate their world conquest. What is really sad is that should Iran decide to begin with Israel, the world will stand by with their hands in their pockets claiming what a great loss it was to lose Israel. This will be the statements coming from Europe and probably the United States after President Trump before Iran even actually attacks as Iran will study the reactions of the rest of the Western leadership as they increasingly threaten to destroy Israel. Israel will very likely be the Czechoslovakia of the coming World War. Fortunately, we in Israel are aware, at least those of us who are pragmatic enough to realize that the world is not exactly going to come running to aid Israel, and Iran is simply waiting for the United States to join Europe in being critical of Israel willing to blame Israel for their being threatened and attacked by Iran. This war is coming, potentially in stages which very readily start with attacks upon Israel. After Israel, expect Jordan to be the next and then Saudi Arabia and as long as the United States remains hands off, Iran will expand and expand taking one nation after another, slowly so as to allow the world to return to a state of calm before advancing to the next victim. For those who claim this is nonsense, Iran has already absorbed Iraq, Yemen, Syria and long-ago Lebanon without even much of a peep from the world, specifically the United Nations who regularly blames Israel for the aggressions from Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, all in the name and at the direction of Iran. Does anybody really believe things will get any better?
