Israel Overreacting as Usual

 

We just figured out we might as well use the same title as the mainstream media. They will claim that the Arab Palestinians rioted because Israel, for no perceivable reason, decided out of the blue to install metal detectors at the entrances of the Temple Mount. The Israelis must have simply decided to do whatever they could to make it impossible for the Arab Palestinians to go up to the al-Aqsa Mosque whenever they needed to do one of their five times a day prayers as demanded by the Quran. The metal detectors were installed just as an inconvenience to the Arab Palestinians just to increase wait times during peak hours for entering onto the Temple Mount in any style or form, as they were accustomed to doing. Well, we guess we are going to just have to plead guilty as charged. The metal detectors were placed at the entrances to the Temple Mount to prevent: Below are two videos; the first details how three Arab Palestinian gunmen entered the Temple Mount and shows their bag-man, who carried their weapons concealed in a backpack, also simply walked onto the Temple Mount as was their operating procedure, so they all entered unhindered and the second shows the resultant attack which murdered two Israeli Druze police officers and injured a third. Placing metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount would do absolutely nothing to prevent the three gunmen from entering the Temple Mount but their bag-man would never make it there with the weapons. This is what the Arab Palestinians are rioting even to the point of having shot at police and throwing Molotov Cocktails. You will hear that over the weekend three Arabs and three Israelis died during these confrontations. Well, that is not exactly accurate. Three Israelis were knifed to death in their home while the family, three generations, gathered for Shabbat dinner and to celebrate the birth of a grandchild. The grandfather in his seventy’s, his daughter in her forties, and his son in his thirties were murdered and the grandmother was injured and required emergency surgery upon arrival at the hospital and will survive. The son’s wife gathered the children into a bedroom and locked the door calling police and screaming they were under attack. A neighbor, an IDF off-duty soldier heard the screams and responded shooting and wounding the terrorist through a window. Despite injuries, when first responders arrived to treat the wounded he managed to get back on his feet and attack the medics upon which he was subdued again. The terrorist was treated at the hospital and was released to authorities. The three Arabs died during the rioting with one falling to his Molotov Cocktail which prematurely exploded in his hands spilling its liquid upon him and immolating him.

 

 

 

Egypt and Jordan, two nations who have signed peace agreements with Israel, graciously insisted that Israel remove the metal detectors, as their presence is an anathema to the Arabs who only wish to enter the Temple Mount for prayers. Apparently, from reports, numerous Arabs who decided not to riot but instead walked past the rioting Arab Palestinians and went right through the metal detectors onto the Temple Mount where they could pray, hold picnics or play soccer, all of which are regular occurrences on the Temple Mount and were all apparently not impeded by the metal detectors in the slightest. Thus far there have been no attempts to enter the Temple Mount with a backpack full of firearms (see first video above for reminder if necessary) but we can expect that such an attempt will definitively display the impediment that Mahmoud Abbas, the Fatah, PA and PLO leadership and the rioters are all screamingly upset will no longer be permitted to carry out their favorite pastime of murdering Israelis including but not limited to Police, IDF soldiers, Border Police and Jews having Shabbat dinner. There have been too many times in which weapons have been brought into Jerusalem and taken further even to Tel Aviv and further by utilizing the liberal “no checks” policy previously used by Israel for the Temple Mount. For the record, there has been one entrance to the Temple Mount at which there has always been a metal detector and most of the people passing through this one small entrance tucked into a corner of the Temple Mount are searched for contraband, especially contraband of a religious nature. This entrance is the only entrance where Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims are permitted to access the Temple Mount and people are subjected to rigorous review in order to assure the purity of the Islamic nature of the Temple Mount as defined by the Jordanian Waqf who control the Temple Mount and have progressively over the years tightened restrictions until they have even made prayer by non-Muslims a criminal event and have included whispering, moving of the lips without speaking, clasping of hands together, or any suspicious movement or uttering to be considered prayer forcing the eviction of the transgressor and often the placing of them under arrest and held over for summary sentencing. To be accused of religious insensitivity by the Waqf is considered sufficient for a guilty finding by the Israeli legal system reserved for such cases. Apparently, praying by non-Muslims is criminal and preventing Muslims from bringing weapons onto the Temple Mount is also a criminal action which Israel will be condemned for in the international media and forums.

 

Let’s return to the world, especially European and American liberal and leftist media, which includes the vast majority of the news you can find, whether or not it is truly usable is another matter all together. Let us just say that the credibility of much of their reporting has become questionable. Israel may be one of the subjects upon which they have become most questionable. We have found that much of the media represents the elitist political leftist of Europe and the United States Department of State line on thinking when it comes to Israel and it being the Jewish State. This slanted coverage is why the Jewish family who were murdered in their home while having a celebratory Shabbat dinner will be reported as equal and having occurred in the same manner as the three Arab Palestinians who died in the Temple Mount rioting. The family and the rioting are all in response to an event we covered in our article “Rebroadcast of Abbas is Declaration of War” as this simple broadcasting repeatedly and posting to the Fatah Facebook page was a call to arms. The response came in the form of rioting and the murder of a family which would have been far worse if not for the saving acts of a neighbor off-duty IDF soldier responding to the screaming. The violence has not been called off and is continuing, but do not expect to hear any reports about the provocateurs. Arab Palestinian violence is not considered news as it occurs with too high a factor of repetition and thus is simply considered something normal and commonplace. Israeli responses are equally disregarded unless an Arab is severely hurt or dies during the rioting, then there is news which will read all about Israeli police or army kill or murder, depending on which coverage you read, hear or watch, and always for no decent or understandable reason. One must remember that rioting Arab Palestinians throwing rocks, Molotov Cocktails, using slings, or even shooting are all considered permissible and Israel is supposed to simply absorb whatever punishment is dealt them, they are the world’s Jews replacing the former Jews.

 

The anti-Semitism which used to be used in Europe to murder Jews was in response to any misfortune, be it plague, famine, assassination or other misunderstood calamity and then they were thrown from the lands as further punishment which sent the Jews off into an uncertain future roaming until they could find some nation or ruler over a region who would permit them to settle. They would be barred from owning land, farming, trades and numerous other means of self-support through gainful employment and thus often became merchants, tavern owners, moneylenders or other permissible occupation. In the Arab and Muslim world the Jews would face the Jizya, the amount of the tax would depend on the momentary situation. Should too many Jews become to be considered overly wealthy, their Jiyza would be increased in measure to their newly acquired wealth or if the local Amir were raising an army the Jiyza would be increased. Jews were Dhimmis and as such were not permitted equal status under the law or within society. Their lot was often not far different from that of the Jew in Europe or Russia with the one difference being under Islamic rulers they were considered protected property and as such were seldom sent fleeing to any other city as that would cause the ruler of the region a loss of a source of income. The Jew, whether under Muslim or Christian rule, was an inferior who took the blame for every misfortune and could be made to pay with their life and no justice under which to find protection. The rumors that one group or the other gave the Jew a better life are rumor, not fact, and the Jew did find relief from time to time, but such never lasted.

 

Today, the world has a new Jew and they do not even reside amongst others, as the new Jew is a nation, the Jewish State, Israel. Israel had her grace period when everybody believed the Jewish State faced the entirety of the Arab world across MENA (Middle East and North Africa) as they were vastly outnumbered. After Israel won the Six Day War and survived and then proved victorious in the Yom Kippur War, Israel was seen as the mega-power in the region. The Arabs also saw that they had a media problem, so they devised a poor and wretched people who would be the victims of the Jews, of Israel. Thus, the Arab Palestinians were given greater importance and became the perpetual victims. The Western media took the bait hook, line and sinker and enjoyed it as if it were a juicy steak. They relished this great opportunity to make the Jew the problem and demand the Jew be brought low. Israel became the new Jew and as such had to be destroyed. The Jewish State was now guilty of the worst crime possible, it was the independent Jew who was capable of standing on their own feet and would protect themselves from any adversaries and do so with great proficiency. This was a situation the world revolted against as the Jew had not had their own nation for over two-thousand years. Israel also meant something else which the leftists cannot fathom or permit. The return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and the founding of the State of Israel meant that Hashem had kept his promise to bring the Jews back to their lands after a very prolonged exile. This gave additional weight to the entire Judeo-Christian ethic and the Bible, especially the Old Testament, Torah and the Ten Commandments. The left does not desire such things, as they are hedonistic in their beliefs and belong to those who no longer put any honest belief in Hashem. This means that Israel must be destroyed and the Jews scattered or completely destroyed as any belief in the Devine must be erased from all relevance. The return of the Jew to their homeland gave renewed strength to the entire basis of the Western culture and Western ethics. This too is an anathema to the leftists. Their desire, whether stated or kept silent, is a return to barbarity and the worship of man or even idols.

 

The reestablishing of Israel means that in time, the Third Temple will be built and Jerusalem will become a religious center for both Judaism and Christianity and will also return to having Jerusalem as its central pillar. The majority of the Evangelical Christians realizes, and with great faith and support, this sign that Hashem does exist and keeps every bit of every promise given. This makes the leftists very angry because they believed they were going to win the culture war and bring an end to Christianity. The leftists were not concerned with the Jews for many Jews they knew believed as they did, that religion was a social clique with traditions and ceremonies which were steeped in antiquity and had as much relevance in their lives as did anything else from antiquity. They performed these rituals because they were simply a tribute to their parents or their parents’ parents or however as generations they needed to remember that once upon a time their ancestors performed and believed in these rituals and the promises from Hashem. Israel is a reminder of the meaning of those very rituals and the fact that many in Israel believe in Hashem and these rituals they find so empty are the lifeblood of the religious residing in Israel and whose ranks are growing. This, to these leftists is problematic.

There are a number of Jews, mostly conservatives, who are believers and many are hoping to return to Israel, but because of their obligations and their age, they are planning on making Aliyah when they retire. They will attempt to learn Hebrew but will largely rely on knowing a number of fellow English speakers in the stores where they shop and at the Synagogues where they worship and find a new life in Israel where being a religious Jew is the norm, except in some areas in or around Tel Aviv, and even there the majority believe in Hashem and the miracle that is Israel. There will be the unbelievers; there have always been the unbelievers even amongst those who were there to witness the dividing of the Red Sea and the giving of the Ten Commandments. At times, there have been more unbelievers than believers, but in the end, there has been and always will be a core of believers and in the good times, they will flourish as the majority. The one unifying belief in Israel is Zionism and the belief that this is our land as promised or not, but Israel is ours and we will not forget or allow others to steal her from us ever again. Yes, we have become the target of the hatred for being the Jewish State. All we desire is that which was promised and nothing more or less, and allow us our land and peace, blessed peace, shalom.

 

Those maintaining that all creeds and all beliefs are equal and none are superior to any other are mistaken. They will invite those who they believe will come and live amongst them peacefully and will demand nothing because they demand nothing of these foreigners. They are going to receive a great surprise when their plan delivers far more than they ever bargained for. These leftists have surrendered their religious past and think that once anyone sees the modernity in which they live with all the technical marvels that they too will forget their religious past and join in the leftist brotherhood of man. There is a surprise coming to Europe and the only hope many in Europe will have is as the slaves of that which they are bringing into their bosom. Israel showed them the warning signs and their response was that Israel should resign themselves to their enemies and then they would have peace. They believe that these same forces when brought into Europe will give them peace. In the end there will be peace, the question is whose peace and how many will survive to see any peace other than the final peace. The biggest question is how will all of this play out, the foolish leadership, the unfortunates who elected these fools repeatedly even after their failures became too obvious to be ignored and which nations will find their history worthy of protecting or has all of Europe fallen to the slovenly ways of the leftists who lead them? We know of a few places which have decided their national ethics are worth rescue Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia with Britain and the United States taking a cautious approach to further refugees. What this will mean down the road and whether this will become the turning point where Europe decides that European culture might just be worth more than they have been giving it credit for and worthy of saving. Boy, won’t that be a surprise to the leftist elites. The nationalists just might win in the end over the internationalists who believe that nothing is worth fighting for as it all makes no difference.

But It Has a Happy Ending

 

Unfortunately, the beginnings are an intentional affront and a threat to Israel’s existence completely financed by Europe and numerous clandestine groups and Arab nations who prefer not to be identified. It all started quite a number of years ago when Israel had yet to be formed. The British were holding the Mandate to form the Jewish State. Their first step towards making that concept disappear was to take 78% of that area and make an Arab Palestinian State called Transjordan, today known as Jordan. This was insufficient, so while the Jews in Europe really could have used a place in which to run, the British held the number permitted in to theoretically 75,000 Jews per year. They let in only a fraction of this number throughout World War II while bringing in around 100,000 Arabs each year even if they had to be paid. The British knew that as long as there were more Arabs than Jews that Israel, the Jewish State, could never be formed. Eventually Israel was formed largely made possible by Jews running the British blockade after World War II ended. The really disgusting thing was after the war many Jews when returning to their homes found their home lived in by another family, always Christians, their business run by some Christians, and their neighbors just as likely to run them out of town roughly as they were to murdering them. Jews learned they no longer had a place in Europe. This was made perfectly clear in this incident which is one of many similar incidents most of which were covered up and never made it into written history as there were no Jewish survivors to tell the story, but they became known as warnings to Jews that returning home was not necessarily a good idea after surviving the Concentrations Camps or hiding out the entire ordeal.

 

The next bold statement of Jews refusing to allow their own defeat came in the form of the miracle of their surviving the six national armies attack on the morning of Israel’s birth. This was after the Arab League had turned down the United Nations partition offered in General Assembly Resolution 181. Once the Arab League refused the division, the entire resolution became null and void and could not be used as a binding document at any future time. General Assembly Resolutions are suggestive in nature and unless both sides agree, they have no further weight. The Zionist Congress and Israelis government agreed to the division, as anything was preferable to a war in which they would begin with no formal armed forces. They patched their groups which had fought the British occupation into a fighting force which only by the grace of Hashem managed to retain any land. Israel lost lands as Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) were lost to Egypt and Jordan respectively (see maps below).

The next act of audacity was for Israel to win the Six Day War , liberating Gaza and the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) while gaining the Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula and then to follow that by surviving the initial attacks and then proving victorious in the Yom Kippur War and even threaten Cairo. That was until the United States, under the auspices of the Department of State, threatened Israel with military forces under United States command and the backing of the United Nations and the world at large if Israel did not halt all advances towards Cairo, Alexandria and Damascus and return to the armistice lines remaining from the Six Day War which were the starting point of that war. When Israel made peace with Egypt they offered to return all of the Sinai Peninsula as well as Gaza but Egypt declined to reapply their occupation of Gaza and returned these lands to Israel along with the large Arab Muslim population. Later when Israel made her peace with Jordan, they declined to reoccupy Judea and Samaria and returned them to Israel but left their citizens they had forced to move into the area while they occupied it giving their poorest citizens the Jews former homes and properties. Jordan also had destroyed Synagogues and desecrated Jewish cemeteries.

 

Israel having offered to return the occupied lands which Egypt and Jordan had occupied and returned to Israeli control was probably the beginning of another plan to dissolve Israel in a sea of Arabs who would take over the nation democratically, but Israel did not simply grant these Arabs left from Egypt and Jordan into her citizenry thus were not overrun by Arab voters. This likely led to the concept which was the real beginnings which came in September of 1993 and had a large amount of assistance from European nations, the United States State Department (again), and some rose colored glasses wearing extreme leftists who believed that if Yasser Arafat were granted respectability, then he could be given a Palestinian Arab nation, then a peace could be made which would assist in ending the stand-off between the Israelis and the Arab World, this was called the Oslo Accords. The Europeans and State Department saw this agreement slightly differently as they were targeting Israel for extermination, the nation and if that included the Jews living there, well, they could live with that as well. Now we get to go through a number of ill-thought-out choices by the leadership of Israel, more often than not under duress or leftist leadership which may have you doubting the intelligence of those who desired the path we have taken.

 

After the idea that Yasser Arafat was willing and desired to make peace should have been completely demolished after the Paris accords where he agreed that should Israel meet a set of terms which were far beyond anything Israel had ever even approached conceding which included East Jerusalem and borders based strongly with the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line and President Clinton felt good about taking this to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Arafat was secure in the thought that there would be absolutely no way on earth that Israel would accept borders along most of the Green Line as well as giving back the Old City, Temple Mount and all of East Jerusalem. President William Jefferson Clinton must have felt wonderful as he went to sleep that night knowing he had just settled the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict as both sides had agreed to the deal. Yasser Arafat went to bed very nervous as President Clinton had not come back with any counter proposal which Arafat could turn down, repeat his demands safe in the knowledge that the Israelis would never give away Jerusalem, let alone the borders resembling the Green Line with over ninety percent of the Green Line being the future border and even the Jordan Valley along the west side of the Jordan River, a natural defensive position. Rumor has it that Arafat ordered his driver to be ready from 6:00 AM on and his plane to be ready for immediate takeoff along the same timeline. He suspected and feared the worst thing possible, that the Israelis had agreed to his demands. Well, President Clinton showed up for the meetings that morning confident that peace was at hand, Prime Minister Barak showed up for the meetings that morning confident that peace was at hand and Yasser Arafat showed up for that morning’s meetings with his bags in the limousine and the driver ready and when he heard Secretary of State Madeline Albright ask who was to sign the agreement, which she was holding copies of in her hands, first, Arafat bolted from his chair for the exit. Secretary of State Albright tried as best she could to catch the fleeing Arafat but simply resulted in her standing at the top of the steps waving papers as Yasser Arafat drove off towards the airport. Later, it was revealed that the Second Intifada had been planned before the negotiations had even commenced and Yasser Arafat never intended to negotiate in good faith but was instead ready to launch yet another offensive intended to drive the Israelis from their lands fleeing in stark terror before the waves of suicide bombings.

 

But the surrender by Israel really began at the end of the Six Day War when Minister of Defense suggested that the Jordanian Waqf be permitted to return and be left to take over running the Temple Mount just as they had done before the war as a sign of good faith. Initially, the Temple Mount was open for visitors who could use any entrance to visit the holy site. That was the initial status-quo but did not remain that way as slowly the Waqf moved to prevent all people other than Muslims to be all but banned from entering the Temple Mount except for limited times each day at the whim of the Waqf who can close the site whenever they choose. They also provide guards who will order any person suspected of prayer or anything which might be deemed unacceptable to Muslim supremacy be removed and possibly arrested for such acts of offense. The entire situation has followed along a parallel path as well. Within half a dozen years of the Arafat debacle in Paris a new idea cropped up coming from Secretary of State (it had to be the State Department again) Condoleezza Rice, who was reported to have privately pointed out the obvious parallels with the black experience in the Antebellum South and the treatment of the Palestinian Arabs, and backed by George W. Bush, who was presumed to be one of Israel’s greatest allies to hold the office of President, that Israel turn complete control and allow the formation of an Arab state in Gaza as an opportunity for the Palestinian Authority to prove their ability to live peacefully and run an actual political entity. In August of 2005 Israel, with great emotional angst and a divided population tearing the nation apart, pulled all of their people, military and all institutions out of Gaza and an American Jewish group paid to leave the greenhouses in Gaza and in working order so as to allow for a basic economy to exist. The greenhouses were torn apart and used to make rockets and launchers and within two years, Hamas had taken complete control over Gaza evicting the Palestinian authority in a coup. Since then Israel has been forced into three wars to end rockets raining down on Israeli civilians with each round Hamas and Islamic Jihad proving to have rockets of greater and greater range with their latest capable of reaching Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and closing in on reaching Haifa. There has been proof that Iran had assisted Hamas off and on giving them greater rocket engine technology and also assisting Islamic Jihad and there have been rumors of IRGC advisors smuggled into Gaza with even greater technologies and training. Needless to point out, the Gaza experiment was nothing short of a complete and unmitigated disaster.

 

Over the years whenever the Western nations, read the Europeans and the Americans, particularly the State Department, have demanded that Israel, as a sign of good faith and proof that they really desire peace, give a concession of some sort, usually conceding control of lands in Judea and Samaria, to the Palestinian Authority just to have a photo opportunity for the President with the leader of the Palestinian Authority, either Yasser Arafat or Mahmoud Abbas, as they proved interchangeable, shake hands with the Israeli Prime Minister and that was often the actual only accomplishment. Should there have been actual meetings after that it was always the same picture, Israel giving up control of more territory until the Arabs broke off negotiations pocketing the territories gained and giving up nothing. The negotiations always broke off the instant that it became necessary for the Palestinian Arabs to give up even recognition that Israel is a Jewish State. The reason this cannot and must not be granted by the Palestinian Authority leadership is simply because their desire is to erase Israel from the map or change it into an Arab state, nothing less will suffice as far as they are concerned and everything they do is towards that end. The secret is that this is also the desired result being sought by the Europeans and the United States Department of State. Oh, they will never admit that this is their desired result, but they along with the United Nations and most of the Arab and Muslim worlds all target Israel with the intent of her destruction. The result of all these concessions and negotiations and promises from so many “well-meaning” souls has been that Israel has all but given away all of Areas A and B.

 

But there have been other developments since 2012 as a result of a concerted effort, replete with European Union makings of at least five-hundred illegal buildings, which they claim are for Palestinian Arabs when the final peace comes. They do not believe for a moment that there is any peace deal ever going to come. The European Union was intentionally building facts on the ground to assist the Arab claim that all the land belongs to them. They know that should they manage to force the Israelis out of Judea and Samaria that this will lead to the bombardment of Tel Aviv and the entire coastal region along with Jerusalem and that this, in their estimation, will force the Jews to surrender the entirety of Israel. Once the schemers get their wildest desires, and they will not surrender trying until the day that Jerusalem and the greater Tel Aviv metropolitan area and suburbs are left as a smoldering heap of massive damage from massive rocket attacks of tens of thousands launched as rapidly as the Arabs are able, the final conflict will have been initiated. This will be when the full force of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) will be felt. There will be no measured response and everything short of nuclear weapons will be unleashed on the Arabs who launched the attack as well as those who failed to prevent that action. They will all be driven across the Jordan River if they are fortunate, the remainder will be killed in the onslaught. The anger from the Israelis and their fighting force will be unleashed on whoever stands in opposition. Should Hezballah in Lebanon think this a good time to strike at Israel in conjunction with the Palestinian Arabs of the PA and Hamas, then Israel will also strike at Lebanon with equal ferocity as Hezballah and Lebanon have become one and the same thing as was proven in the Hezballah victory parade in Syria where they displayed their Abrams Tanks they procured from the Lebanese Army when the two forces merged. Simply stated, whoever pops their heads up and claims they want their piece of the war will find those heads removed in as rapid a fashion as feasible. Will Israel face destruction, probably quite a bit, especially along the Tel Aviv coast from Ashkelon to Haifa as well as around Jerusalem but buildings can be replaced, Israel must remain.

When that day these Europeans and select Americans envision comes and the Arabs are able to rain missiles onto the Israeli cities, there will be a surprise. If such comes from the Palestinian Authority areas; then the leadership, at the least, and the entire population, if required, will be driven from lands which were promised Israel and the Jews under the San Remo Conference, Treaty of Severs and the British Crown. Israel will take the lands to the Jordan River and that will be the end of the entire farce the world has been perpetrating with the intent to drive Israel into the ground. Israel and the Jews are home again and we are not leaving no matter what the world may try. The Arabs will not drive us from our homelands and neither will the European Union. We do not want anything more than what was promised and the world knows exactly what was promised. They may lie and attempt to steal the land from under our feet but that is not going to happen, not now, not ever. That is the promise that every Israeli child who loves this land makes when they enlist in the IDF.

 

Definitive Map of Israel

 

The map above is the promise reached with the British Crown when they repurposed 78% of the Mandate to fulfill two promises, to give the Arab Palestinians (those two words order are interchangeable) and to give a nation to the second Hashemite son of King Faisal, Abdullah I bin al-Hussein, the first king of Jordan. They took all the land east of the Jordan River to the border of Iraq where King Abdullah I’s brother ruled as the other half of the promise. That left the remaining paltry 22% of the land for the Jewish State and this was to be considered inviolate protected by the British Crown. Well, we have now seen that the worth and weight, not to mention veracity of promises from the British Crown have become. Still, this was what was promised. We gave away Gaza but should Hamas be a part of this fight, that too can change. The only promise I would hope could be given is we will stop at these borders and if everybody else accepts that the war is done, then that will be the end and peace will come with these borders. Anything beyond them, which include all of Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights, but not Gaza on the map as we gave that away of our own accords, our own insanity of the moment while greatly pressured. And the lesson we learned should pay us dividends going forward. The result of Gaza should be fair warning. Does Israel have other problems? Yes, we have our internal difficulties, as we are a democracy and what nation does not have difficulties except, if you believe their propaganda, North Korea and Iran. Oh yes, Venezuela and Syria used to make that claim but making it today would be a ridiculous joke. In Israel the potential threats, which come from near and far with the far being the more troublesome, are simply part of everyday life and the ones from Europe and the United States State Department are some of the most feared with Iran a distant second. The Arabs in our neighborhood should remember that they have never witnessed the full brunt of what Israel today is capable of unleashing and we pray nobody ever requires such horrors from us; we prefer life even if our enemies worship death. Perhaps many do not remember Israeli history when we fought people who worshiped Ba’al which is another means of worshiping death as such belief included human sacrifice including the sacrifice of infants. We fought such back in the beginning and are amazed how little the barbarians have changed as they still sacrifice humans and even children in their craze to murder Israelis. If you listen to them, they are not targeting Israelis, they want to kill Jews which can be seen in their own words in videos captured and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, Middle East Media Research Institute and Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America. For the record, should Israel receive her due and have the Jordan River and Golan Heights as her eastern border and peace finally achieved, that would be an extremely happy ending and then we could write about just Israel’s internal needs instead of watching the world so closely. We can wish and hope but Hashem will provide what we need when we need, and that is happiness too.

Terror Attack Grants Israel Prime Opportunity

 

The terror attack at the Lion’s Gate on the Temple Mount where three Arab Palestinians armed with two rifles and a pistol intentionally targeted three police officers killing two and leaving the third with severe to moderate wounds in the extremities, neck and torso according to one early report was simply a reinitiating of the terror paradigm resulting from Palestinian leadership’s payments to terrorists and terror families. Below we have included a brief interview with an MDA medic summarizing the attack. United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman stated to media, “I am shocked and horrified by the despicable attack today in Jerusalem. Terrorism must be condemned by all and defeated. We pray for the victims.” This is the unfortunate response we get time after time, attack after attack, fatality after fatality and still the world demands that Israel cater to and bend before every demand made by the same institutions which condone and support the murderous terrorism. These are the same institutions which pay terrorists in Israeli prisons and the families of terrorists who were eliminated in their murderous acts thousands of dollars making murdering Israelis the highest paying profession for the Palestinian Arabs.

 

 

We did see a quote with which we could work with as apparently somebody else has reached well past the point of believing it is time for an alteration to be made. Israeli Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev offered the following commentary and a good suggestion, “The murderous terror attack which occurred today immediately after the terrorists left the Temple Mount, forces us to examine thoroughly the Temple Mount’s status-quo. It’s time the Temple Mount was opened to everyone, without limiting the hours they can come or the areas which they can visit. The Temple Mount should be like any other site in Jerusalem. The Waqf should only run the mosque – not the entire Temple Mount, which is under Israeli sovereignty and is the responsibility of the Israeli government. This is the only way we will be able to restore quiet and security to the Temple Mount and the Old City. We will all pray for the welfare of the victims, and we wish them a speedy recovery.”

 

We discussed the so-called status-quo several times over the years here, here, here and here. Now is the time for a change whether the rest of the world approves or not, it is time to do just as Miri Regev stated and just open the Temple Mount to the world. I can almost hear the world’s reaction to Israel doing exactly the correct act in response to this murderous terrorist attack. There will be cries from Europe that punishing the Palestinian Arab Muslims by taking away their Holy Site because of a terror attack which they had no responsibility. That is the big lie that will be sold and Israel should simply not allow that to pass unopposed and without revealing the payouts from the Palestinian Authority (PA) to terrorists and their families, the incitement that permeates Palestinian Authority media, television, schools, children’s camps, naming of soccer tournaments, parks, roads, schools and the immortalizing of terrorists all to encourage their youth to want to be terrorists, some even to be martyrs. Don’t believe us, here it is in their own words and from the mouths of babes in the videos below, which is such a crime it actually makes us sad because these youths are not naturally evil but are corrupted by an evil regime which thinks nothing of the lives of their own children.

 

 
 

 
 

 

The Waqf will demand that the status-quo of no Jews permitted onto the Temple Mount except through the most stringent of circumstances and that only Muslims have the right to pray and all non-Muslims also have to use the Jewish entrance, as the main entrances must be reserved only for the holy people, the Muslims. The Israeli response should be to inquire, would you wish to be responsible for the Mosques on the Temple Mount or not. The Waqf will simply demand as their Allah given right to monitor and control the entire Temple Mount and will try and instruct Israel that they have no power against their rights which come from Allah. At this point, Israel should inform Jordan that their Waqf are no longer permitted in Israel and will be returning to Amman, Jordan immediately and escort the Waqf and the security personnel who are Jordanians to the Allenby Bridge and see that they cross and not permit their return. Then Israel should declare the Temple Mount open to all people using all entrances as an Israeli World Heritage Site. When UNESCO then informs Israel that their having decided that the Temple Mount belongs wholly to the Muslims and that there can be no Jewish claims or control allowed, Israel should simply challenge them to enforce their preposterous declaration. In the meantime, until they successfully enforce their declaration the Temple Mount will remain an Israeli site and open to the general public. Israel also will not permit UNESCO to influence their decision in any way, period. Israel should still enforce the sanctity of the Mosques and if the Muslims decide they do not allow non-Muslims to enter the Mosques, then so be it, that is not an Israeli concern, just the open areas where tourists can experience this holy ground. As for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, its visitation rights will be left to the numerous religious priests who care for this Christian holy site as to whether they will permit tourists or just restricted supervised tours or closing it to the public, it will be their call. Then, once the noise and declarations of extreme aggravation and indignation finally calms, then Israel might desire to make plans for the construction of the Third Temple on some open area of the Temple Mount and until the Temple is built, there should be no further Mosque construction or extensions permitted and this should be strictly enforced otherwise there would be massive mosque construction simply to cover every piece of open ground just to deny it to the rest of the world. We provide a picture of how the Third Temple can be placed on the Temple Mount without any damage or impingement on the other holy sites already on the Temple Mount including the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock below.

Then the United Nations will likely decide in the General Assembly with some fair and impartial decision where the vote runs somewhere around 138 in favor to 9 against which will likely be Canada, Czech Republic, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Panama, Palau and the United States, with 41 abstentions which will mostly be from European nations who are too frightened to stand with Israel but still are not quite ready to turn their backs completely on their Judeo-Christian roots and a few African nations mixed in. The Security Council will likely refuse to accept any motion for them to vote on such an issue simply because the United States would use their veto and not likely bother to beg the other nations to avoid their doing so. President Trump and United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nicky Haley are likely all but drooling for their first opportunity to veto an anti-Israel motion in the Security Council simply to make a statement that there is a new sheriff in the Security Council and the old management has left the building. After this has had absolutely no effect upon any actions by Israel and the Temple Mount has become one of the favorite sites that tourists make a must see location and has been secured such that it is also extremely safe, maybe the world will simply accept the new reality. Wait, whom are we kidding. The world will continue to carry on caterwauling and screaming making the most dire claims bordering on the edge of going over the edge, beyond the cusp, into the darkness and eventually leading them to sulking when it has absolutely no effect.

 

This terrorist attack upon police officers that took the life of two and wounded a third should not be allowed to pass without making a change to the situation would be criminal and this could be used as a statement that no longer will terrorism simply pass without any consequences. This should be taken as the start of the new era where the Palestinian Arabs and their terrorist laden leadership will pay a price for every terrorist attack and that no longer will these murderous assaults be permitted to pass without consequences. The era of Israel as the world’s patsy must end and this should be the turning point where Israel now stands up and faces the world as an equal if not as one of the elite and most advanced nations on the planet with few equals. It is time Israel stands up for its rights and impress upon the Palestinian Arabs that the war is over, they lost and if they do not settle soon for what Israel will permit they could very soon have nothing at all and all be somewhere in Syria dodging Bashir al-Assad fired artillery and other forms of murderous attacks. Should the PA decide that they still have the upper hand and can get away with murder and never have to pay a price, they must be disabused of such ideas and educated that things are going to be different and their time to settle for a settlement where they get anything has become limited. Perhaps this Victory Caucus can step up and make the bold statement needed and necessitated right now. They and Daniel Pipes said that they are calling for President Trump to simply tell Israel the war is over and Israel won, well, we could use the backing and we believe that Israel needs to stand up for herself and make the move and then President Trump will find backing Israel far easier and will very likely have the opportunity soon thereafter at the United Nations, of all places. Imagine this as the events over the next few weeks. Israel internationalizes the Temple Mount opening it up to all people with free access using all gates and entrances and prayer permitted for all peoples of all religions or no religion if the feeling strikes them. The United Nations getting all their panties in a bunch and bringing a motion to the Security Council brought by Egypt and backed by China, France and the Russian Federation and President Trump making the veto for the United States in person and announcing his full support for the new Israeli initiative whereby terrorism will no longer be tolerated and will cost the PA after every attack with no exceptions. Now is the opportunity to start a new era where terrorism ends or else, no exceptions.
