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 Because of their belief that whatever they feel is the truth and there is little if any requirement that historical references be included in their decision-making process; they can draw any conclusion and demand that it is valid.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?

Iran Does Not Want War with America; Really?

 

Well, actually, Iran does not want war with America…….now. Iran does desire an excuse to have a war which includes the fleets off of their shores, but they have a deeper desire which allows for this as simply a necessity. Their current desire is to fight America in their region while using such a conflict in order to instigate a war with Israel. Iran intends to replace the United States and any other contenders for the hegemonic power in the world. Iranian leadership actually sees one main obstacle to their initial steps in their hope to eventually be a world power and leader of the allied world. Please do not believe that only the United States and other powers are able to forge coalitions, Iran also seeks to form a coalition which will grant them hegemony over the Middle East and control of the oil within. Iran also seeks to gain control over the Islamic holy cities, Mecca and Medina, currently under Saudi control. Iran desires to take the Saudi, Kuwaiti and Gulf States oil fields as well as taking the region where Saudi Arabia borders on the Red Sea giving them control over Mecca and Medina. Their reasoning behind this place is plainly obvious, they would have control of approximately one-third of the world’s oil supplies, take over being the protector of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina and remove the claim to power held by the Saudi Royal Family, who claim to be the protectors of the holy cities, Mecca and Medina. But the true Iranian desire is to completely destroy Israel and being able to claim they restored the rule of Allah in Jerusalem (al Quds). This is one of the two main reasons for the Iranian involvement in Syria backing Bashar al-Assad. The other reason is to gain and retain control over Damascus, the third actual city in the Islamic hierarchy of metropolitan areas which have holiness. For the Iranians and all other Shiite Muslims, the city of Qom is also amongst the holiest places on Earth. Qom is the location where the Twelfth Imam is supposed to return after, shall we say, a rather lengthy absence from the scene. This Imam disappeared and went into hiding towards the end of the initial violence between Sunni Islam and the new offshoot, Shia Islam. The rumor being that he hid deep in a well and is to return and lead Shiite Islam to their rightful world domination. This well is in Qom, Iran.

 

Most of the Western Media and almost all of the heavily anti-Israel world media are touting Iran as the coming savior which will finally eradicate that Zionist monstrosity at the east end of the Mediterranean Sea, Israel. All one need do is listen to almost any of the regularly held Friday afternoon hate-fests, an even very reminiscent of the 1984 Two Minutes of Hate, just more drawn out. These demonstrations are often accompanied with the burning of Israeli and American flags as well as the burnings of Bibi Netanyahu and Donald Trump in effigy. These are often accompanied by chants of, “Death to Israel,” and, “Death to America.” These demonstrations are often attended by numerous high-ranking Iranian politicians, including those the West labels as moderate, and even the Supreme Leader who has been known to lead these chants of hate and spite towards the developed world. Iranian leaders often make allusions to their former glory years as Persia while continuing to persecute those people who continue to follow the ancient religious practices of the Zoroastrianism. Their relating their greatness to ancient Persia while continuing to imprint the Islamic conqueror’s Islamic faith is very much part of their having fully adopted this conquering faith of Islam. Iran not only has accepted Islam as the replacement for the ancient Persian faiths but have adopted the less followed Islamic cult of Shia Islam.

 

The first idea for supremacism under Shia Islam is the conquest of the Islamic world. The Iranian Mullahs view the destruction of Israel and the eradication of the Jewish faith as their ticket to Islamic prevalence. They believe that if they can become the party of Islam which destroys Israel that the remaining Muslims in the world will suddenly awaken to the supremacy of Shia Islam. It is their belief that they are the one, and definitely not Saudi Arabia, whose leaders they label as apostates, or Egypt which they see as far too nationalistic. Whenever others claim that Iran is also following a supremacist conquest of the Middle East, the fig leaf applied to their nurturing conquest being that of the purification of Islam. Iran sees itself as the Martin Luther of Islam and leading the revolution against the tired and former glories of Sunni Islamic conquest and replacing them with the more energetic and purist Shiite Islam and then from replacing Saudi Arabia and Egypt they see an easy path claiming their supremacy throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa. Their intent then with the destruction of Israel is on a par with their desires to replace Egypt and Saudi Arabia as the nation at the fore of Islam, Islamic thought, Islamic belief and Islamic teachings. Because they are the ones who have been chosen to lead Islam and the future world, their initial test is to destroy Israel, take the Saudi Oil Fields, replacing the Saudi Royal family as the guardians of the two sacred cities and taking over Egypt and converting these Muslims to Shiite Islam from which the rest of the Islamic world will no doubt see the light. With such conquests under their belts, they believe the entirety of the remaining Islamic followers will fall behind their leadership and place them as the true Islamic leaders leaving behind the centuries under Sunni Islam and joining its main rival. This would then be followed by a rewriting of the various Islamic historical thought with supremacist Sunni ideology.

 

Currently, the leaders of Iran view Israel as one of the protectors of Sunni Islam as they view Israel as allied with and protecting Saudi Arabia and the plethora of other peoples and forces that the Iranians are currently engaged. The Mullahs often blame Israel for their setbacks in replacing Sunni Islam with Shia Islam. The disagreement and war between Sunni and Shia Islam are almost as old as the Islamic faith. Their split, as many such dichotomies are, is over who was the rightful heir to Muhammad with each side choosing a different individual and their family lineage on to the current separate leaderships across the Muslim world. Iran also intends to not only impose their version of a perfect form of Islam traceable all the way back to Muhammad, but to replace all religious belief in the world with Shiite Islam providing those they conquer the choice of Islam or a very hurried trip to the world beyond life. These efforts by Iran currently spread across Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Syria, Lebanon and beyond, reaching far beyond the constraints of the Islamic world. Iran has implemented a structure of military control whereby they can use their IRGC military assets to foment terror across the globe and spreading their influence across Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and beyond to the Tri-Border Region in South America with the hopes and visions to spread Shiite Islam further. It is the Iranian intent to use this region as their jumping-off point from which to conquer the Americas striking at the United States through its southern borders. Iran and their Hezballah proxy have already been caught attempting to slip terror forces into the United States across her southern borders.

One of the major fronts developing in the Middle East involves Iran and the United States. Thus far, Iran has been the one initiating a conflict almost as if they relish a chance to prove their superiority over the United States who they largely blame along with the British for the existence of Israel. They blame the British for allowing Israel in the first place and the United States presumably for allying with Israel from her inception. Beyond recognition of the Jewish States, American aid and support did not start until the 1970’s. But what is one more lie amongst the myriad of lies piled up by the forces of the world against the Jewish State. Review the logs of the United Nations and her various agencies and one will find Israel as the primary target by the remainder of the world and the Iranian fervor and fire used when referring to the country of Israel. Iran is the primary supporter for Hamas, Hezballah, Bashir al-Assad, Islamic Jihad and numerous other forces which are allied together for the destruction of Israel. Iran does not desire there be a resolution and instead desires to replace continued warfare across the Middle East as conflict and confusion are two of the best weapons used by Iran and her forces with confusion as their favorite weapon behind which there is always their blanket of misinformation placing all blame upon their enemies and espousing their victim status as the offended party only there to defend their good and peaceful name and version of Islam, Shia Islam. Iran couches their claims within the various quotes from within the Quran which denounces the Jews and their Sunni enemies while claiming that Iran is forming the new Caliphate, once Iran manages to convert the bulk of Islam to their way of thinking.

 

Iran believes they can win any conflict with the United States in the Middle East theaters of operation. They also believe that Israel is unable to stand on her own were the United States forced to flee the region after realizing the foremost capacities of the Iranian forces and their masterful superiority. Funny how delusions of greatness almost inevitably lead to one’s downfall. Such is particularly valid when selling the United States short just as has been proven by scoffing at the abilities of Israel. Iran has intentionally placed themselves on the wrong side of both of these fronts and has of late been attempting to force a confrontation in the region’s waters with the American fleets. Their method has been to disable ships passing through the Straits of Hormuz while not sinking them, yet. Despite their intent to simply give the United States a bloody nose and sending them whimpering from the Middle East, their bluster and methods are more likely to lead to a direct and immediate confrontation with America. The main reason such has yet to begin is a credit to the patience of America and not to any careful planning by Iran.

 

Contrary to Iranian claims and the anti-Trump politics in America that it is the United States seeking a confrontation, it has been the patience and desire to avoid all-out war by President Trump which have thus far avoided such a conflict. When Iran pressed a confrontation shooting down an American drone presumably, and likely, in international airspace, it was President Trump who made the final decision to recall the American strike. Rumors have circulated of a difference of opinion over responding militarily and with strength put forward by John Bolton and Trump’s hopes to force negotiations without forcing direct confrontation being at the forefront of United States Iranian policies. President Trump seeks to use sanctions and other pressures to force Iran to the negotiation table that is becoming the primary American policy which we fear Iran will interpret as weakness and inevitably leading to the conflict Trump desires to avoid. Iran will likely eventually attack either shipping through the Straits of Hormuz or upon the American fleets, specifically an aircraft carrier, the stated preferred target by Iran, which could very easily light off the violence which has a great potential for breaking out. This is the unfortunate but likely end result of this face-off over the Iranian nuclear program. Iran is currently backing out of all their presumed obligation in the Iran Nuclear Deal which Europe and Iran remain signatories through the United Nations which is threatening to provoke conflict. Iran recently announced their intent to return to uranium enrichment to twenty-percent which is the greatest threat. Such enrichment in quantity can only be for a singular purpose, the manufacture of nuclear weapons. As Iran most certainly already posses the technology to produce such weapons and that they probably already possess a number of nuclear weapons which should worry the world and not the fact that President Trump pulled out of an agreement which would have most certainly led to a nuclear armed Iran with as many weapons as they are able to produce. Further, the Iranian leaders, both political and military, though there is little difference between the two, in which they claimed that they would sacrifice their entire nation if they are able to take Israel and the United States down with themselves. This is the same frightening position taken by Japan in the Pacific theater which led to the devastating battles during World War II. Iran has even invited the onset of World War III if that is what is required to end their perceived American and Israeli hegemony in the world.

 

It is the supremacist view of the Iranian Mullahs which will force any confrontation and eventually President Trump will run out of patience which will force a response to some future Iranian provocation. When such eventuality forces the confrontation, we will witness the Iranians complaining that it was the United States which forced this confrontation because they refused to comply with Iranian demands. This has been the Mullahs playbook from the onset of this situation and in other cases of the past such as their violent putting down of the Green Revolution in 2009. They blame their adversaries for starting the violence when mostly they were unarmed, as in the Green Revolution which was largely peaceful protests which were set upon by IRGC forces and Basenji militias. The same will come whenever the Iranians push the envelope too far and the United States responds. The claim will be that Iran was simply safeguarding their own waters and the United States violations of Iranian waters or airspace and not the Iranian assaults which will have set off the conflict. One needs to keep in mind that Iran claims that all of the Straits of Hormuz as their waterway which set off the last burst of conflict between the United States and Iran. This time promises to be of little difference. IRGC naval commanders have already claimed that the United States has parked their carrier fleets in Iranian waters. Such would be preposterous if it were not so serious. The American fleets are nowhere near the Iranian shores but Iran is claiming that the United States has no right to have fleets anywhere in the Persian Gulf or Arabian Sea as these are all part of Iranian sovereignty. Iran will continue to press and prick at the United States until a conflict is the only means of ending the stalemate. This will be the point that Iran will order their forces around Israel to begin what they claim will be the destruction of Israel within hours. This will entail rockets and other military assaults from Hezballah in Lebanon, the IRGC in Syria and Hamas with Islamic Jihad from Gaza very probably aided with ballistic missiles fired from Iran and potentially Iraq upon Israel most likely targeting Tel Aviv primarily. When Israel responds, Iran will blame Israel for starting any further conflict as the proper response in their minds would be for Israel to surrender to the presumed superior Islamic forces and come begging and whimpering for their Islamic betters to be kind and allow them to just enjoy their protections. Iran has already made numerous jabs at Israel using rockets, drones and tunneling under the border to which Israel has responded with care not to force the situation beyond each insult. When Israel responds to these aggressions, the Iranian leaders immediately claim that Israel is pushing for a war with Iran despite the fact that Israel has not fired a single weapon into Iranian lands. It is Iran that has placed forces in Syria, armed and trained Hezballah in Lebanon and is currently doing all they can to further arm Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. Israel has remained within her borders even when striking back at the Iranian missile launchers and artillery in Syria firing their missiles from aircraft still in Israeli airspace. But Iran will not be satisfied until they have provoked a war with Israel and presumably the United States. Our hope is that the Iranian people can be saved from these militaristic, supremacist belligerents. This might also prove to be the best step for saving the world from a future heavily armed nuclear Iran choosing the when and where they begin their intentioned war for the proper conquest of the world by Shia Islam of which they are its ruling elites and proper world rulers if the rest of us only knew what was best for us.
