When Will Israel Become a Real Nation?

 

The latest test for sovereignty, which challenged Israel, was the call for rage, rioting, murdering and general uprising issued by Fatah and the Palestinian Authority when they rebroadcast Mahmoud Abbas and his call for assaulting the Temple Mount in 2014, which led to two weeks of complete chaos and riotous behavior by uncounted Palestinian youths and young adults (see below video 1). This time it led to rioting around the outside of the Temple Mount carrying the theme that Israel had completely blocked off the Temple Mount from Muslim and was destroying their ability to pray at their sacred al-Aqsa Mosque, for the record that is not the one with the golden dome, that is the Dome of the Rock and is not an actual mosque. The reason that these Islamic religious individuals seeking only to cleanse their souls with prayer to Allah were unable to reach the Temple Mount was due to Israel placing metal detectors at the entrances to detect weapons such as knives and firearms. Apparently, all of these saintly individuals must have steel rods or plates within their bodies that were required to repair damage they received during other periods of rage or rioting otherwise metal detectors would only prevent their bringing weapons onto this sacred Islamic site. Why would Israel, out of the blue, if you believe the Arab Palestinians, all of a sudden add metal detectors and additional security cameras to the entrances and particular spots of interest, such as blind spots and alcoves, onto the Temple Mount? Well, it was in response to the murdering of two police and the wounding of a third by three Arab Palestinian terrorists using weapons smuggled in a satchel onto the Temple Mount by a fourth terrorist. The entire operation was broken down by Israeli security services and the videos with the terrorists circled and a breakdown of their actions on videos found on YouTube (see them below videos 2 & 3). Also paying the ultimate price for the violence were three Arab Palestinians, two died when shots were fired at Israeli personnel who responded silencing the fire resulting in two deaths and some small amount of wounded, and a third died when his Molotov cocktail exploded prematurely in his hands completely immolating him. Three Israelis from a family who were murdered killing Yosef Salomon age 70, his daughter Chaya Salomon age 46, and son Elad Salomon age 36 (pictured above) and placed his wife Tova Salomon age 68 in Shaare Zedek Medical Center for emergency surgery saving her life. Elad’s wife managed to herd the grandchildren into a bedroom, lock the door, called police and screamed that they were being attacked. Responding to the screams, an off duty IDF soldier managed to shoot and wound the terrorist through a window of the house. The terrorist, Omar al-Abed age 19, was subdued and was reported to have jumped up and attempted to attack the medical respondents as they worked to try to save the victims and was promptly subdued once again. He was taken for treatment and has been released to security police for arraignment. Simply stated, Israel acted in a sane and normative fashion just as any free, democratic nation would act, for an example take a domestic flight and we bet you will walk through some form of weapons detection.

How did the Arab world respond to the Israeli safety measures on their third holiest place behind Mecca and Medina, India, Pakistan, Turkey, United States and the world? According to Jerusalem Post “In Mecca there are more than 5,000 CCTV cameras and over 100,000 people employed to provide security during the annual Hajj.” We are sure that this is not the only place or time when there are security precautions taken in Mecca, Medina or anywhere around the globe by Muslims in Islamic nations and outside the Islamic world. The only nation where there must be no such protection of worshipers is in Israel and largely only at the Temple Mount where it becomes a world effort and concern. We might pretend to wonder why but the answer was given in the form of two Druze Israelis whose only crime was enlisting as Security Police and guard one of the entrances to the Temple Mount. This cold blooded murder was not the first time that weapons have been used from the Temple Mount to commit terrorism attacks throughout Israel. The murders a few months back theorized that the weapons used may have been smuggled into Israel via the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount is the main method by which the terrorists can readily exploit the close proximity of shops and homes which abut the Temple Mount (see image below) to smuggle weapons into Israel. Once the weapons have been brought into East Jerusalem, the entrances onto the Temple Mount are readily available and without metal detectors, they can be smuggled in easily as shown in the videos above. This was the purpose for the detectors but anything that would impede the Arab Palestinians’ ability to murder Israelis cannot be suffered and thus the demonstrations and protests from across the Arab world and had it gone longer likely Europe and the United Nations.

The Times of Israel reports that “Egypt, France and Sweden called for the Security Council discussion following clashes over the weekend that left five Palestinians dead and saw a brutal terror attack, in which a Palestinian killed three family members at a Shabbat meal.” Trust that they included the terror attack likely because of the insistence of Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon along with American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley if that was truly even included in the reasons. The demonstrations are about something only related to the metal detectors because it impedes the Arab Palestinians ability to smuggle weapons into Israel and around the Temple Mount vicinity with which to murder Jews, euphemistically referred to as Israelis. The truth that their desire is not to murder Christians, Druze, Baha’I, Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists, Shinto or any of the other thousands of religions and prefer Jewish targets over all else by listening to their incitement and the quotes of their youth who repeat the incitement word-for-word as their indoctrination and its methods permeate every sphere of their young lives turning innocents into murdering machines, or at least that is the hope of their leaders (see videos below). Their incitement can be looked up on your own, as they are proud of much of this as it truly portrays their society as the shining example of a perfect Islamic world.

They teach their youth that there can be only one faith, Islam. They are given the order in which non-Muslims are to be eliminated. They list Christians and idolaters; which includes religions such as Buddhism, Hindus and most of the other Eastern religions; and the atheists but then they list the two exceptions who are the ones who are to be ultimately hated and destroyed first and foremost, the Jews followed by the Apostates, those who left Islam for a different or for no religion. The indoctrination begins as soon as the youth understand speech even before they themselves are able to speak. Often the first words some youth speak are phrases from incitements they have been constantly exposed to and their lives inundated by hate and glorifying the ending of one’s life as a martyr. On top of all this is the payments made to the family of martyrs and terrorists. The majority of the Arab Palestinian economic model is based upon these payments to the families of those terrorists who have been taken alive and convicted to prison in Israel or to the families of those who have fallen while committing acts of terror.

 

These are the payments, which Mahmoud Abbas promised President Trump he would work to terminate, something he actually can simply order and it would be so, until he was assassinated and replaced. Abbas then told the United States Peace Envoy Jarred Kushner and his party that in no way would these precious payments, which are honorable and necessary for the Palestinian People and their entire existence being based upon these remunerations. He simple has told them that the entire Palestinian economy is based on blood money payments and their education consists slowly of indoctrination and incitement towards the elimination of the Jewish State and death of the Jews. It is nice that Abbas finally told the truth for a change, the problem is the United States Peace Envoy disregarded the words spoken by Abbas and continued as if they were informed that when Abbas claims he will continue the payments for terror and the murder of Jews that he means he is ready to make peace if only the United States would pressure Israel to make concessions which would enable further terrorist attacks and the surrender of additional lands as Abbas is still working to destroy Israel in stages.

 

Despite this reality, when the Jordanians and Egyptians demanded that the metal detectors be removed, Israel simply buckled to their demands in total. Adding to the levels of tension came, according to ABC report on Sunday, “Two Jordanians were killed and an Israeli was wounded by gunfire Sunday in a residential building at the Israeli embassy compound in Jordan’s capital, the kingdom’s Public Security Directorate said. Israeli media reported Monday that an Israeli security guard opened fire after a Jordanian worker attacked him with a screwdriver. The worker and the Jordanian owner of the building were wounded and later died, the reports said.” This led to Jordan demanding that Israel turn over the Embassy guard who was involved in the shooting and masses of Jordanians surrounded the Israeli compound. Israel evacuated the embassy leaving the complex empty fearing any escalation. Jordan, along with Egypt and countless others from every direction registered their discontent, as apparently protecting Israeli lives is criminal. Jordan demanded that all video cameras be removed including those which were already on the Temple Mount. The Israeli Security Cabinet, composed of the most trusted “yes men” the Prime Minister could collect, immediately folded and removed all security or observation equipment as demanded by Jordan. The Jordanian Waqf now stands as the supreme possessor of the Temple Mount. Israel ought to move the Jordanian Embassy onto the Temple Mount as it apparently is now Jordanian sacredly owned ground. One must wonder if Israelis will be demanded to have a Jordanian Visa to go up on the Temple Mount in the future.

 

This immediate folding to pressure from the Arab and Palestinian worlds is regrettable and is supremely and seriously misguided. Where will this cowardice end, what will the Israeli surrender at the first provocation take Israel as a nation. Can Israel even believe that anything is sacred when challenged by Jordan, Egypt, Arab Palestinians and who knows whom else. What happens now if Jordan, Egypt, the Arab League, the European Union, the United Nations and UNESCO decide that all of the contested areas of Judea and Samaria as well as half of Jerusalem are now to be given to the Arab Palestinians as the initial promise by Israel to do whatever is demanded to make the Arab world less aggrieved. What after that, perhaps demands for Israel to surrender the Negev so that Gaza and Palestine can be connected. Perhaps after that there will be the demand that the Arabs need agricultural lands and the Galilee appears to be the perfect land for such a venture. Will this end up with Israel defined as the Tel Aviv greater metropolitan area? And then what? Please consider any next step with great care as running from any confrontation when dealing with cowardly bullies as they will continue to press and demand with the backing of the world and at some point Israel is going to have to take a stand and make that stand final. The more land that we can rightfully claim when we make that stand, the better it will be and the better will be the result.

 

We would like to make a suggestion that we know will find many who will claim it is undoable, but hear it out at least. The first and most vital step is to take all the Arab Palestinians starting with Mahmoud Abbas and continue through all which are known enemies of Israel and responsible for the indoctrination and incitement and expel them as the terrorists they are. Then inform the remaining Arab population that they will be permitted an election for their own communities that will be overseen by the Israelis and the United Nations to assure fair and balanced election procedures. There will also be one question which every remaining Arab will be required to answer in order for Israel to decide what can be done to make sure that the peace is held. Each Arab will have three choices to make. They can choose to live in peace and accept Israeli laws, they can decide to be bought out at a ridiculously high price and then go on their way with Israel giving them transport to any nation Israel legally flies to and they can receive acceptance or further travel to another country where they will be accepted or they can choose to war with Israel. Those choosing to be bought out, Israel should attempt to find an Arab state, which will be willing to accept these people as refugees, and Israel will pay that nation a set price per person. Finally, those who choose war against Israel will simply be deported to Jordan, Lebanon or Syria (the Sinai might be an option but why go out of our way to upset Egypt?). The ones who decide to accept Israeli law will be placed on probationary period of three years in which time any serious breach of Israeli law will lead to deportation. After this period, there should be developed a means for them to gain full citizenship, but in the meantime they will be permitted to vote in their local elections and to remain in their city or town and after the three years then there can be considerations of permitting them to move to other Arab controlled areas. Anything beyond these parameters should be considered with a jaundiced eye. Israel will take control of their education system and hopefully the older children can be deprogrammed and the youth will hopefully not be too damaged, as Israel will need to save as many of these youth as possible. With hope, eventually these Arabs will manage to either emigrate or become Israelis and contribute rather than destroy as they are doing now.

Israel is All of Israel as Defined by San Remo

 

We have discussed this almost ad-nauseum but please allow us to once more try to take a different tack and perhaps wake a few more minds. The San Remo Conference took place during the early 1920s close after the end of World War I. Obviously it took place in San Remo, Italy right on the Mediterranean Sea in a picturesque location and as always really plush hotels. Just once I would like to see an international conference or negotiations take place somewhere such as Tiksi, Siberia, Russia which also has beaches on the Buor-Khaya Gulf of the Laptev Sea, southeast of the delta of the Lena River. The pictures are below and we invite our friends to choose their preference in comments, if you will. We can guess that when a global warming conference to discuss the thawing of the tundra permafrost lands in Siberia and Alaska are held in Marrakech, Morocco that it proves the United Nations knows how to throw a conference as their studying thawing tundra on the arctic is held on the edge of the Sahara Desert proving the United Nations is more interested in going on holidays than solving anything.

Aside from climate change and getting more serious, Israel was given guarantees from the League of Nations and the San Remo Conference where the Mandate System was put in place which was followed by the Treaty of Sèvres which codified the decisions from the San Remo Conference which had based their findings directly quoting the Balfour Declaration as the basis for the British Mandate. This eventually led to the Churchill White Papers where when Transjordan was formed the Zionist Congress was guaranteed that all lands west of the Jordan River and the Jordanian border would remain for the formation of the Jewish State of Israel presumably sacrosanct. The war was initiated by six Arab nations, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Iraq with additional forces from Muslim Brotherhood, Pakistan, Sudan, Holy War Army, Arab Liberation Army and further support as able from the Arab League against the Israelis, who were not well armed at the onset as the British did everything possible to disarm the Jewish communities. Fortunately the Israelis soon received some arms smuggled and timed to arrive immediately after the British leaving and much assistance from what was then Czechoslovakia as well as planes and other left over World War II armored vehicles and rifles from France, yes, France. Russia also kicked in some armament and the Israelis managed to secretly hide a few British Spitfire fighters which somehow went unaccounted for as the British left. Still, Israel was outnumbered close to 2:1 at the outbreak and by the time peace was established Israel, where every man, woman and boys above fifteen were placed on the front lines while the rest of the population did whatever they were able including reloading cartridges to make additional bullets, making simple machineguns, armoring cars and adding small bore cannons or high caliber heavy machineguns, making hand grenades and mines as well as anything even to cooking and taking food and water to the soldiers who were fighting, that was the Israeli side. At the end of over a year of fighting the Israelis were gaining ground as the final ceasefires were being imposed which had they been refused for another few weeks by the Israelis they might have pushed the Arab forces out of all Israeli territories which were promised by the British and there would have been no talk of occupied West Bank which is a bald faced lie.

 

So, where does the idea of an occupied Gaza and West Bank originate? The United Nations inherited the British Mandate and French Mandate Systems after it was formed to replace the League of Nations which had proven incapable of preventing World War II. The United Nations has claimed to have prevented any war of sufficient size to be considered as World War III, to be exact. The reality is that nuclear weapons likely did more to prevent a World War III more than the United Nations which has problems with keeping promises or showing any amount of integrity or ability to enforce human rights and all too often their peacekeepers have been more of a problem to the women and children where they are stationed than those they are there to prevent from any malfeasance. Some things are too shocking to even list as nobody would believe us so instead we linked the disgusting behavior of European peacekeepers in Central African Republic which we could only shake our heads and feel saddened by these abuses. So, with such as a rule more than the exception in items concerning the United Nations and their propensity even from the start to bend and bow to Arab and Islamic demands, we really should not have been surprised when after the British set up an Arab Palestinian residents named Transjordan which was renamed simply Jordan in 1950 where the population was enforced such that no Jews were permitted residence as Jordan was determined to be a predominantly Arab population ruled by the Hashemite King that the United Nations then insisted on making the remaining land split evenly between its Jewish and non-Jewish Arab residents. The Arabs were offered much of the prime irrigated lands while the predominant of the land the Jews were to receive was all of the Negev Desert. The Arab League refused the United Nations suggestion instead resorting to their plan to annihilate the Jewish State and every Jew they could find. All of this was the result of the General Assembly meeting and drawing a non-binding Resolution, which remain valid only if accepted by all the parties; so the Arab League refusal invalidated the resolution allowing the situation to revert to the preexisting condition which was that the Jewish State would be formed as promised by Winston Churchill and the British had guaranteed originally when Transjordan (Jordan) was founded.

So, at midnight and one second Israel was born (though the Jews day started at sundown so they had celebrated their founding the evening of May 14, 1948; Iyyar 5, 5708) with the borders of the Jordan River and Jordan to the east, the border with Egypt separating the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev Desert to the south, the Lebanon border to the north and the Golan Heights for their border with Syria and the Mediterranean Sea. All the land borders had massed armies and the Jews knew that dawn would bring an invasion which they may be unable to repulse. That started the war too many Israelis refer to as their War of Independence and we recognize their viewpoint and using this name as it was a war to remain an actual viable nation but we call that war the Arab War of Genocidal Expectations. The Israelis claim they won their War of Independence while we hold that they survived the deadly threat which placed every last Israeli in perilous danger under threat of a genocidal slaughter promised by vastly superior forces. We look at this war more pragmatically and realize that the State of Israel as settled by the separate armistices between Israel and her Arab neighbors which were the Blue Line with Lebanon which was the same or very close to the original borders, the Golan Heights with Syria which was also close to the original with the difference being the armistice line was at the bottom of the heights instead of at the apex, and along the Sinai Negev border with the exception of Egypt occupying the Gaza Strip and the border with Jordan now left half of Jerusalem and what has ever since been named the West Bank (originally the lands were Judea, Samaria, Benjamin with Jerusalem having previously been entirely Israeli and their eternal Capital City) and occupied by Jordan. This is what is important about the wars of 1948-9; the Jewish State of Israel lost land to invading offensive armies namely having half of the Golan Heights occupied by Syria, all of Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank) occupied by Jordan. Jordan went a step further and declared they annexed the West Bank and provided every Arab living there citizenship and forcibly removed every Jew stealing their property and anything they were unable to take with them as they were forced to leave with great urgency. Only Pakistan and Great Britain recognized Jordan annexing the lands they were occupying but the United Nations and the world mostly remained silent not challenging the Jordanian, Egyptian and Syrian occupations. During this occupation by the Arab states there was absolutely no talk of founding a new Arab state using the West Bank and Gaza. The world remained silent about the occupied Israeli lands and simply adjusted to the new armistice lines.

 

When the 1967 Six Day War struck as Gamal Abdel Nasser massed troops from Syria and Egypt on Israeli borders, while for weeks on end broadcasting propaganda that the superior Arab armies would drive the Jews into the Sea, that war was inevitable. After the fighting had started, the Egyptians and Syrian broadcast propaganda telling of their great gains and how both were closing on Tel Aviv and hearing this, King Hussein of Jordan declared his intent to join in the massacre and allow his people to enjoy the spoils. Israel did all they could to convince the Jordanian King that the broadcasts by the other Arab leaders were lies for their own peoples’ consumption. Israel was routing both armies but the Jordanian King believed Israel was bluffing and was actually losing and he needed to rush if he was to be in on the end of the Jewish State. Jordan troops poured into Western Jerusalem and started towards Tel Aviv and the Israelis redirected some troops which were heading for the Sinai to back troops against Egypt. Within a few hours of the redirected troops they reported having taken the Temple Mount where the troops stopped and prayed with some putting on Tefillin and prayer shawls (Tallit). Their joy almost prevented their continuing their mission but by the time the fighting was halted, Israel held the Golan Heights from Syrian occupation, the Sinai Peninsula and had liberated the Gaza Strip from Egyptian occupation along with liberating Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank). The peace Israel made with Egypt, Israel returned the entire Sinai Peninsula while Egypt surrendered the Gaza back to Israel returning all occupied areas to their rightful owners on the Israeli southern front. Soon after there was a peace reached with Jordan who returned Judea, Samaria and Benjamin (West Bank) to Israel, its rightful owner. One would think that would be the end of things, especially with nobody able to claim lands which correctly belong to Israel.

 

No, such thinking would be incorrect. Here is where we start to make some people angry on both sides. First and foremost Israel must develop and build their own fifth generation fighter and cancel their orders for the F-35 JSF from the United States. This should most definitely be a priority. Israel must necessarily produce the entirety of the Military Equipment from the smallest truck to the most advanced tanks and aircraft including requiring their component parts, ammunition and other munitions and lastly they must also make bombs. These newest of aircraft require communication with their production company in order for parameters, potential repairs, stress levels and other reading the aircraft makes on itself and various items needed to schedule maintenance properly. The problem is that the aircraft must file a flight plan with the United States who must then approve any flight. Israel has the capacity, the means and the people to manufacture a top of the line aircraft and anything else. The weapons industry is a very lucrative business and Israel needs to be self-sufficient with all items concerning the safety of the nation and its people. Further, the aid money that Israel has received from the United States is earmarked with some heavy duty ropes attached demanding that Israel spend 75% of the cash buying weapons from the United States. Israel could survive without the money which has become an addictive drug which only weakens the victim. As long as you are on the dole from the United States they get to sell you defense weapons systems and you have no control over the future which the past going on eight years has proven may not be so wonderful if Israel is relying on the United States for their defensive weapons. Once a nation enters such a deal they reach a point where all their military equipment comes from the United States and one wrong person ascending to the Presidency and that nation just may awaken one morning being gotten up even earlier than usual to be informed that the United States has deactivated all your weapons systems and the nation is completely vulnerable. Now that would be an Excedrin moment.

 

The other main problem with Israel being dependent on the United States for weapons and arms, especially the entire inventory of the Air Force, is that the United States has too much power and a certain threat which could devastate Israel militarily just by simply refusing to allow Israel parts to repair their aircraft. Israel is in a sensitive place and really needs a radical solution to her dilemma. Such a solution will not be accepted by the United Nations, the European Union and likely the United States and why not throw in Russia and China for good measure. The solution we are referring to is simply claiming the remainder of Samaria, Benjamin and Judea taking all the land which would return Israel to the early morning May 15, 1949, the morning in which seven Arab armies moved against Israel and stole lands. Now would be as great a time as any to reclaim all of the lands promised and remove the terrorist entity, leadership and actual terror threats and be done with it. Those who desire to remain as part of Israel and are willing to sign and pledge to make a loyalty oath which will state that any felony or terror related conviction will result in the criminal being forcibly exiled from Israel may remain and integrate into Israeli society and take a path to full citizenship. Those Arabs who choose to leave Israel will receive a cash payout for their property and a resettlement bonus. The terror masters will receive our fondest wishes as we wave good-riddance! Israel would necessarily need to control their schools and thus their curriculum if there would be any possibility of retrieving the minds of many of the younger students and even potentially making productive members of the society as many of the students have thus far been fed a steady diet of hate for Israelis and particularly Jews. As long as Israel remains dependent on the United States she will be unable to take the steps required for a safe and prosperous future for her citizens including a number of Arab Muslims.
