One would have thought that the President would have considered the possibility that he might lose the game before initiating a game of political hardball with Prime Minister Netanyahu on Netanyahu’s home court. From all the hurtful reactions and threats that he be declared the winner and have his way or else one might also begin to question the sanity and ability to command the largest and most powerful military on the planet. For all intents and purposes, President Obama has truly lost his mind over losing an election in which he was personally present but not an actual candidate. Is it beyond the ability of the childlike man sitting in the most powerful position in the world to accept that the citizens of another nation might decide independent of his desires when electing their nation’s leader in times where that nation possibly faces some of the most daunting challenges to its existence in its ever so fragile history? If such a contingency was not considered as even possible, let alone probable, and thus comes as a total surprise and impossibility to comprehend or accept by President Obama, such that in reaction to this reality he now threatens Israel with annihilation, must be taken as evidence that the President may suffer from debilitating imbalances and is now a threat to not only Israel but the entire world going forward. The reaction to something that had to at some point have been contemplated, that playing hardball politics against a seasoned and proven adversary might not be decided as the President intended, was at best childish and unwarranted from such as the President of the United States. That despite sending the best of the best of the available political operatives, the ones who were to be credited with engineering President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, backed by millions of dollars and euros from the United States and European governments and still being unable to defeat Netanyahu had to be an option to the situation even if an unexpected option. That President Obama would take such a defeat so intimately personal is the surprise even beyond the failure of such an overbearing effort, but perhaps it was the overbearing nature of the effort which enabled its downfall. Simply described, me thinks the man doth protest too much.

 

What is necessary now is for somebody in the White House to fall on their sword but still attempt in doing so to explain to the President that sometimes in life one will eventually, no matter how seemingly impossible, actually come up against an opponent who will prevail even against one’s best of efforts. I realize that this may just be the first time that President Obama had somebody, or around four-million somebodies, go to the polls and refute his wise and sagely advice and instead vote for somebody whom President Obama finds beyond distasteful all the way to an adversarial pain in the derriere. But to then demand that despite the people of Israel in an open and free election choosing this person as their next Prime Minister that this person must now act as if the other side won and is dictating policies is beyond arrogant and just a bit pedantic, unwarranted and beneath the office which Obama holds. That President Obama apparently intends to punish Israel and use the full force and power of his office to do so is as frightening as it is unwarranted. The comments that the United States, meaning President Obama without consulting either the peoples or the Congress of the nation he presumably leads, is reassessing relations with Israel and intends to quite possibly force a solution upon Israel against the desires and will of the Israeli government and to do so unilaterally and by any and all means at the disposal of the President of the United States and his administration using international bodies and alliances which will knowingly place Israel and her population in dire peril of loss of life and nationhood is simply unacceptable use of the power of the President. Does anybody honestly place forcing Israel to completely surrender all points and be forced to not only surrender all points to an adversary whose stated intentions is the destruction of Israel and the murder of its predominant population and to do so unilaterally and without receiving any assurances or even any hint that such surrender of all points of negotiation produce an end to the violence against Israel from these Arab entities is more a declaration of war than a diplomatic seeking of a resolution. Does President Obama honestly intend to use force of arms to insist that Israel now comply with his standing threat to pull back unilaterally to the pre June 1967 war lines, also called the Green Line, without any guarantees or concessions from the Arab side by Mahmoud Abbas and then begin to negotiate the remaining issues such as dividing Jerusalem, final borders and other issues. This was what was presented to Netanyahu as a potential solution being considered by the White House. The unanswered question of what remains to be negotiated once Israel has ceded every inch of lands which are contested beyond Israel pulling up her roots and moving to Madagascar or wherever as the only remaining issue at such a point is how many Arab refugees will be shoved down Israel’s throat destroying any and every last vestige of the Jewish nature of Israel and one more time sending the Jewish people out into the Diaspora begging the permission of others to survive in a world which is closer to the next Holocaust than it is to accepting a Jewish state despite the actual, and hopefully not temporary, state for the Jewish people.

 

What is beyond belief is that President Obama honestly expects Prime Minister elect, he will not actually be the Prime Minister until he has been tasked with and successfully forming a coalition of minimally sixty-one Minister of the Knesset, to commit national suicide just so President Obama can claim another Nobel Peace Prize while claiming to have untied the Gordian Knot which has proven to be the Arab-Israeli peace. The problem with this solution is it resembles exactly the method used in legends by Alexander the Great when he cleaved the Gordian Knot in two claiming to have untied it though use of force was not considered a proper method and thus Alexander would eventually fail in his efforts to conquer all lands the knot represented. The use of force or threat of force will not be any more successful in untying the Gordian Knot of the modern world any more than Alexander’s skillful use of his strong sword succeeded in ancient times and will only make matters closer to all-out war. Israel will not go quietly into the gentleness that good night, but into her old age will she burn and rave at close of day and rage, rage against the dying of the light. Israel has waited her sons’ and daughters’ return to once again be blessed by this land and this land will remain our succor into eternity for as long as the sun does rise and the winds gently caress these lands will it remain our home to even our last dying effort will we hold to our rightful inheritance. The land is ours by right of promise from Heaven echoed rightfully by men of courage whose efforts and love of Zion engaged and brought forth the Balfour Declaration which was then universalized and made the law of the lands under the auspices of the League of Nations who adopted the Balfour Declaration word for precious word written into the San Remo Conference and ratified unanimously by the League of Nations and adopted by the United States by the Anglo-American Convention on Palestine in 1925 and confirmed in 1945 by Article 80 of the United Nations and has never been abrogated thus still is applicable under International Law. President Obama should be informed exactly what he is intending by his actions, that should he persist then his actions will be interpreted as a declaration of hostility and an attempt to abrogate standing International Law and also to have taken actions against a standing treaty which as such is the law of the land for the United States. The areas into which President Obama, in his obsessed mind, plans on treading is thin ice due to the roiling boil of the waters beneath. Should his plan include use of the United Nations Security Council, let him be warned that the United Nations is also bounded by the San Remo Conference and under its own Charter in Article 80 these promises were reaffirmed and ratified once again entering the conclusion of San Remo into the present framework of International Law. With such justification and the righteousness of our claims to this our lands will Israel stand against any efforts you may intend to sanction in your name. Remember that without Congressional actions the President of the United States may not declare war or deploy troops and doing so against treaties entered into by the United States and ratified by Congress that the President might once again find himself standing lonely on the battlefield of ideas without a clue. No, President Obama, you may not take your vengeance out on a nation just because they did not heed your presumably sagely advice and instead elected a leader who will serve Israel and Israeli interests the world be damned if that is what is required. And if this leader fails in that task, then we will elect a new leader more attuned to the needs of the day and sworn to protect that which is rightfully ours by treaty and, more importantly, by the will of Heaven. Would you like to see our deed? Well, it can be found in Genesis where Abraham was promised all the lands where it states in “Genesis 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Is that easy enough because if not there is more even to include the treaties of man which promise the same and more, but you already are knowledgeable of such things being the most able man on earth. After all, according to Patrick Gaspard, your first White House political director, in an interview with The New Yorker in November 2008, he quoted you having stated, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” With minimal extrapolation we can guess you exceed at all things mortal and border on the realm of the immortal, still, Israel will not be pushed. We are a stiff-necked people and even more-so when our own beloved Zion is up for presumptive discussions. Do not doubt that for a moment, simply do not transgress there and think real hard as to whether such threats and actions will be worth the price you will pay when all is said and done. Just go repair Syria, ISIS, Libya, Yemen and the other problems which cry so much louder for your attentions, but those would require heavy lifting and you see Israel as an easy target, the low hanging fruit but you are mistaken, very mistaken. One would have thought you might have taken the hint from the election, leave well enough as is and go tackle some pressing problem and leave us to deal with our situations. Bye-bye.

Israel Hated Similar Reasons as is the United States

One of the mantras heard in the condemnation of Israel in the current struggle to end the rocket bombardment and destroy the infiltration tunnel networks of the Hamas terrorist forces is that while there are hundreds of casualties being suffered within Gaza there are relatively little damage and a near unbelievable lack of noticeable casualties amongst the Israeli populations and cities. This lack of such disaster spread throughout Israel is due to two basic facts, first, the Hamas rockets are unguided and inaccurate with the majority landing in open areas thus doing little other than difficult to measure psychological damage simply from the repeated sirens and the having to hurriedly head for shelters and spend anxious minutes or longer in tense anxiety and second, the next to impossible success of the Iron Dome interceptor batteries which have downed approaching perfect interception percentage which has spared Israel the damage and casualties which previously would reached frightful levels. Take away either of these two factors and Israel would be showing similar levels of damage and significantly higher casualties than are being witnessed in Gaza despite the facts that Hamas places their civilians in the path of dangers and risks their lives in order to attempt to prevent attacks on something they value more than their people’s lives, their rockets to launch in the hope of murdering as many Israelis as possible while Israel invests whatever is necessary to prevent any harm from coming to her civilians. For those hanging on every new broadcast hoping for news of a highly successful attack which brings devastation to those Israelis, it will only take one failure of the Iron Dome batteries which are tasked with protecting Tel Aviv for your dreams to be unfortunately realized. In central Tel Aviv are tall office buildings with ten having forty or more floors and one that clears fifty which could be struck by a Hamas rocket and some of their largest are capable of doing sufficient damage to collapse one such skyscraper making such a strike the worst terrorist strike in Israeli history with a potential of thousands of murdered Israelis as a result of that one rocket which might get through. Those who hold the disparate death tolls and damages as their reason for despising Israel and throwing their sympathies to Hamas in empathy for their greater losses are damning Israel because of her success at protecting her population.

If instead of measuring by damage taken one were to measure the presumed disparity by number of explosive bombs and warheads launched or dropped and number of attempted ground mission and took the period of time leading up to the Israeli ground assault beginning you might be surprised. This comparison does not include the over a thousand rockets launched by Hamas into Israel before Israel launched her first bombing mission and only those rockets and attempted infiltrations by Hamas measured against the number of Israeli bombs and commando raids. The explosive comparison had slightly over a thousand-five-hundred Hamas rockets while the Israelis retaliated with slightly over two-thousand bombs with Hamas having attempted around a half-dozen infiltrations against a single naval commando mission by Israel. When one looks at the attacks and attempts to impart damage, destruction and casualties on the other side the conflict between Israel and Hamas becomes far more even contest with the measurable difference being in the preparation and success in defending and protecting ones people from those attacks.

This holding Israel at fault because of her being the stronger and more technologically advanced also ignores one of the most vital and important facts, Israel did not initiate this war and Israel removed every last Israeli and removed every IDF troop and base from all of Gaza in August of 2005. When people point to the blockade it needs to be pointed out that when Israel removed their presence they tuned the greenhouses and working businesses worth millions of dollars behind for the Gazans to utilize giving them functioning and profitable operations and did not impose any blockade on Gaza until after Hamas took control of Gaza in a bloody and violent coup defeating the forces of the Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas. As long as the Palestinian Authority was governing Gaza the Israelis felt little need to clamp strict control over the ports in Gaza but this sense of security dissipated when Hamas which is sworn to the destruction of Israel and the eradication of Jews worldwide stipulated in the clearest possible language in the Hamas Charter and is a unifying theme taught in their schools and portrayed throughout their media.

Anybody who has attended one of the liberal arts colleges or universities and received lectures from professors holding the typical anti-capitalist and anti-American views such as often lectured by such as Noam Chomsky you would be familiar with their anti-American programs. They claim that American culture is polluting the world and tainting the natural culture and altering societies claiming that this societal culture creep that is Americanizing many of the cultures in the third world presumably destroying these primitive cultures which they claim are superior to the crass American culture as the more primitive cultures presumably live in harmony with nature. They also claim that the United States is the worst polluter of nature in the world, something far from borne out by actual unmassaged statistics. Was the United States a large pollution engine a number of decades ago? Yes, though not necessarily the worst. The truth is that since the 1970s the United States has been the only nation that has actually met and surpassed the stringent requirements set by the Kyoto Protocols despite the fact that the United States never signed on to these standards. Another canard is that the United States economic wealth has stolen from the less developed world their share of wealth because since the available wealth is presumably constant, their claim, not mine, then by obvious measurement, by the United States having so much wealth they have to have made it unfairly by robbing the poorer nations. What they are intentionally suppressing is that wealth is not a constant and the United States historically has been the greatest creator of wealth.

What, you need some proof that wealth is constantly being created? To use the most obvious proof that wealth grows over time and directly proportionally to technological advancement one need look no further than ancient human history, real ancient human history. Original ancient man, as in Homo erectus, our ancient ancestors hunted with spears and possibly bow and arrows and the keeper of the fire would be put to death if he permitted the fire to be extinguished and was responsible for transporting the embers to spark the fire when the tribe migrated. We could now trend the advances and thus creations of wealth through the ages with the Greeks and Romans who used plumbing, aqueducts and relatively complex weaponry compared to spears but quite primitive and useless against modern weaponry. Then we see what we have today with buildings covering large swaths of Europe and the United States, automobiles and other items which not long ago were considered luxuries or were not yet invented. All of these are indication of increased available wealth and by claiming that American culture and production methods are ruinous to less advanced nations is actually a form of elitism which is using false arguments to keep the third world less advanced and inferior to the technologically modern world by claiming that their lack of modernity is a state of existence that needs to be preserved. Where this is actually more destructive ecologically can also be described by researching the production of a simple product which has been in existence for numerous centuries, the production of charcoal. Modern charcoal is produced using electrical heating elements with the wood chips placed in a chamber which is filled with CO2 which minimizes escaping pollution while the tried and true old school method is to make large piles of wood chips and allow them to smolder such that the ones buried in the center are oxygen starved and are made into charcoal but produce heavy amounts of smoke and if a large area is used to mass produce charcoal with numerous large mounds smoldering away the area can become absolutely toxic. Which way would any intelligent ecological activist desire to have people worldwide produce charcoal, with modern equipment or the good old fashioned way which is still used in much of today’s world? Criticizing the United States for having a worldwide cultural influence and a greater proportion of the world’s per capita wealth is a form of primitivism and a rejection of advanced technology. This is found in a number of other elitist fads such as rejection of most technological advancements in agricultural preferring “natural” products. The same crippling anti-success jealousy which has infected much of social academia is behind much of the anti-Americanism as it is also behind much of the anti-Israel hatreds. This is most evident in the condemnation of Israel for protecting her people while sympathizing with Hamas because they appear disadvantaged by the resulting casualty numbers and destruction of infrastructure despite the actual number and size of explosives launched by each side being relatively equal, and actually favoring Hamas if one includes the three week buildup of rockets fired into Israel before the initial Israeli response to those attacks. But it is so much more noble to favor the underdog and it gives one a sense of superiority but cannot be assumed to grant them any moral advantage, that takes a more reasoned, systematic and unemotional examination of facts and actual numbers and not kneejerk emotional spontaneous reactions.
