And France Doubles Down

 

Right on the heels of the disastrous French initiative taking confab of twenty plus Foreign Ministers last week where they could not even join together to condemn Israel, let alone demand Israel commit some form of concessions once again to restart the moribund peace process, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault now had the audacity to lecture Israel about the extra security measures taken after the deadly Tel Aviv terror shooting. His claim was by cancelling the work and other passage permissions for the extended family of the terrorists and the cancellation of the Ramadan liberal permissions in response to the attack which murdered four and wounded a score more was simply collective punishment and would lead to more terror and exacerbate an already difficult situation. You can read about and see videos and pictures of the actual assault and aftermath in our article on the terror attack and other related events Look Back and Forward to Coming Incitements for War. The steps Israel took were the same basic types as any sane and rational government would take facing the same situation. The terrorists were cousins from a family which already has a terror history of radicalization with an Uncle of both young men still serving in an Israeli prison for terrorist assault he took part in previously. Israel went so far as to freeze work entry visas for some 204 members of the attackers’ extended family. Israel went further and rescinded approximately eighty-three-thousand general entry permits given to Arabs from Judea and Samaria for Ramadan without running security checks on the vast majority. To run individual checks on this many people would take far longer than the Ramadan holiday and cancellation was a safety precaution, not a punishment. Goodwill gestures to Gaza Arabs, including travel permits to Jerusalem to participate in Ramadan prayers on the Temple Mount, were also rescinded, especially after the reaction of the Hamas government and their sister terror organization Islamic Jihad support for the terror attack and threat that more of the same was imminent. To the French Foreign Minister such actions were overreacting like the French are all of a sudden security experts on how to prevent terrorist attacks. Let’s look at the recent record, oh, yes; Paris just had a slight problem in this area, didn’t they. The reasoning behind the French reaction against Israel’s steps in the aftermath of this horrific attack was blame the victim, side with the terrorists and maybe, just maybe the terrorists will think the French are so wonderful they will not strike there ever again. Talk about throwing everybody else to the alligators so that they will be eaten last thinking which has such a great track record when it comes to terrorism.

 

Adding to the preposterousness of French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault hyperventilating over Israeli security measures was the location from where it came. He was in the United Nations to take part in a Security Council debate on the protection of civilians in peacekeeping. Talking about the United Nations, on Friday the United Nations Human Rights Chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein spoke along with the rest of his office to express how so “deeply concerned” by Israel’s response they were while only offering a mild condemnation of the actual terror attack itself or concern for the families of the slain or for a recovery of the injured. These were not the exception but when the terrorist attack was condemned in equivocating terms, it was more often than not followed immediately with stronger terms denouncing Israeli actions as horrid overreactions and in the wording of the office of Mr. al-Hussein, “includes measures that may amount to prohibited collective punishment and will only increase the sense of injustice and frustration felt by Palestinians in this very tense time.”

 

Meanwhile the French Foreign Weasel, we mean Foreign Minister, did we really say Weasel? Anyway, the foreign minister further stated, “There must be a political initiative from the international community to create conditions conducive to appeasement and a return to negotiations,” according to AFP. France is always working for the security of Israel.” Really now, and were not you the leading figure right next to French President François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande calling for a ministerial meeting last week in Paris to discuss what concessions Israel could take to prove their honest desires for peace on top of near countless previous concessions to do the exact same desire for peace? Did not your office recently threaten Israel with recognizing an Arab State called Palestine and setting their borders unilaterally as if the French ran the world? Are you not that same French Foreign Minister head whose office is working furiously with other parts of the French government to find some way of punishing Israel in order for President François Hollande can show he is on top of taking steps to prevent further terror attacks like the one recently in Paris and before that two others including the Charlie Hebdo murders where Israeli Prime Minister flew to Paris to state himself in French, “Je suis Charlie” and march with the other dignitaries? Oh, I remember, he was placed a number of rows back while Mahmoud Abbas was given front and center of the processions for the pictures and there were articles claiming that the Israeli Prime Minister was a news hound just trying to get himself into the picture like the pushy petty Jew that he was, that was the reaction expressed out of Paris after the picture below was released. Who again was being given the glory hound position and why was he smiling after a dozen people and more were just murdered in Paris and all others had their serious faces on as was appropriate; that clown Abbas was doing one of the only two things he knows how to do, condemn Israel and smile like a jackal when before cameras even at a remembrance for terrorist victims murdered in the name of Islam.

The two-facedness of your condemnation immediately after siding with the terrorists and attempting to give them a state taken out of the gut of Israel from which to paralyze Israeli industry and threaten directly seventy percent of her population, you then turn around and condemn Israel for reacting to terrorists who came from that very same area you meant to make a terrorist state from. They came from a small town just outside Hevron, a small town which could not help but celebrate their little warriors with fireworks and candies as two of their own gunned down four unarmed civilians at a market and when encountering Israeli security forces who were armed, they dropped their weapons and attempted to act as victims themselves. The one shot while escaping was shot in such a manner as to prevent his escape but not to kill, a form of shooting to arrest rather than center of body mass which requires the security personnel in Israel to take additional training to master such a difficult task. In one of the videos at our aforementioned article you can witness the Israeli security personnel shooting the suspect three or four times and the resulting generally non-life-threatening wounds placed him at the same hospital being treated by the same Israeli physicians as were the victims of he and his cousin’s terror spree where they opened fire in a crowded market full of unarmed people in Tel Aviv one nice evening, well, it was nice until those two jackals, and we apologize for insulting jackals everywhere, opened fire and then immediately threw their weapons down, one of them after one of the market patrons kicked his gun from his grasp breaking it making it unusable, and attempted the innocent victim routine as they knew that police and Israeli armed security personnel would soon arrive and they were not prepared to take on anyone who would be capable of shooting back. Then they ran and we are waiting for the first complaint that the Israeli security personnel shot an unarmed terrorist making him a victim of Israeli brutalism. The vermin, again, vermin, we mean no disparaging but the words for these terror swine, now we need apologize to swine, was running from the scene and it was entirely likely he was still armed thus shooting rather than take further chances with loss of innocent lives warranted his actions. Let us state further that this security personnel came running towards the sounds of gunfire, not away or hiding in place but running towards a situation more than likely which would place them in danger themselves, a rare breed amongst humankind and we have numerous just like them here in Israel and we are thankful for every last one of these brave and selfless individuals. As far as for the French Foreign Minister and President attempting to raise their standing with the French people on the backs and lives of the Israeli people, we remember the case of Alfred Dreyfus and can plainly see that the French leadership has not moved all that far from their pedigree of that day. Let us conclude, “Nous sommes Dreyfus” and in his memory, that of French perfidy then and now.

Presidents Barack Hussein Obama and François Hollande Next Cooperative

 

Presidents Barack Hussein Obama with the full and forceful support of Secretary of State Kerry and the full support of the plethora of advisors including but likely not limited to Anne Patterson, Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Near East Affairs, Frank Lowenstein, Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations, Chris Henzel, Director of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Andrew Lederman, Political Officer of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Rob Malley, Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and White House Coordinator for MENA (Middle East and North Africa), and Steven Galpern, National Security Council Director of Israeli-Palestinian Affairs will silently move to support the French initiative originally crafted by former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius whose full support of all things Palestinian is well known. The Obama Administration will probably press France’s new Foreign Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, who has backtracked some from the original threat in the name of a peace process. President Obama gave his hand away when he first lowered expectations with the President, Vice President and Secretary of State all claiming that they had accepted that there would be no two state solution to the Arab (Palestinian)-Israeli peace process. The one thing which should trouble any sane person is that the Obama Administration, as listed above, has at the least a half dozen advisors, managers, and whatever one might conceptualize all basically hovering over Israel; and all with these positions dwell on how much Israel must sacrifice for a peace with a guarantee of terror attacks. What none of these “experts” refuse to admit to the public is that the Arab World refuses to accept the existence of Israel and no matter what may be agreed with, there will be no end to the violence as long as there exists a Jewish State or any Jews residing in any of the lands currently included. This includes anywhere in Jerusalem, anywhere in Tel Aviv, Eilat, Haifa, Akko or anywhere even inside the Green Line, period. This does not bother anybody as long as there may be a Nobel Prize for any deal forced upon Israel.

 

Towards these potential eventualities, Secretary of State Kerry met with the French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and numerous other European diplomats to work towards a stringent and forceful proposal which meets the critical positions of Israel forced back within the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, forcing close to a million Jews homeless and a large percentage jobless and all of the Temple Mount and Western Wall under Arab Palestinian control which would be, exactly as things were under Jordan, completely out of the reach of Jews and Jacob’s Tomb once again utterly destroyed along with a number of rebuilt Synagogues completely defiled and destroyed with Arab Palestinians dancing in celebrations. Pictures of the last episode which destroyed Jacob’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) are included below. The pictures of this holy site of paramount history and importance as Joseph (Yosef) demanded that his bones be taken from Egypt when the Exodus came and have them reinterred within Eretz Yisroel and that request was honored centuries later when the prophesized Exodus, like the current ingathering, were all prophesized. The Arabs have already declared numerous Jewish and Christian holy sites which predate Islam to be awarded the Arabs (Palestinians) despite their unmistakable history. Included amongst these holy sites are Rachel’s Tomb (renamed as an Arab Sultan’s tomb), the Church of the Holy Sepulture, the Church of the Nativity, the Cave of the Patriarchs and others and they are attempting to have UNESCO award both the Western Wall and Temple Mount as exclusively Islamic holy sites. All of these actions are to either make all holy sites Islamic or destroyed with no middle Ground as the Palestinians refuse to allow any holy sites other than Muslim designated sites. Such has been Islamic actions as with the giant standing Buddhas representing Vairocana and Sakyamuni which the Taliban destroyed in the Bamyan Valley.

Meanwhile, President Obama has little if any care for these sites, the Jews residing in what have become major cities and business hubs employing thousands of Arab Palestinians who live in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), a little fact which is never discussed. Little known that Ahava Dead Sea Products Cosmetics and Soda Stream both relocated within the Green Line as a response to the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) Movement to avoid conflicts and over a thousand Palestinian Arabs had to be let go due to security situations which would have required excessive government intervention both within Israel as well as from the semi-autonomous Palestinian Authority which refused to be forthcoming as they were more interested in the public relations of pressing the claim that Israel refused to allow Palestinians to retain their jobs. These Palestinians lost their jobs because the BDS Movement pressed these companies into relocating; the same BDS Movement started and financed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is simply an arm of the Palestinian Authority (PA) as their project to attempt to force Israelis from their homes and force the Jobs run and owned by Israelis out of the areas they claim they desire initially as their initial step after Gaza in their war to destroy Israel.

 

None of these realities matter to President Obama as his desire is to force a peace on Israel by any means required just as he will close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp as these were amongst the top promises made during the initial campaign where President Obama was initially elected. The reality of what forcing a peace on Israel will accomplish, which is absolutely nothing, when Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas within a day of a terror attack which murdered an American citizen and though Abbas made a limp apology and refused to denounce the attack and after their meeting Abbas and numerous PA and PLO officials applauded and gave serious acclaim to the terrorists. This has been the modus-operandi of the PA and PLO as well as Hamas with the naming of sports centers, camps, schools and streets amongst other structures after terrorists with the larger naming go to those terrorists who have murdered the most Israelis. This past week there was the charm offensive with the PLO charm agent and senior member of the PLO Executive Committee, Hanan Ashrawi, who met with numerous senior advisors and Middle East experts in President Obama’s Administration seeking promises for added United Nations pressures to end the “occupation” and for the United States to refuse any Israeli request that the United States not use their Veto as the French resolution is placed before the Security Council. Ms. Ashrawi also pressed for the original French proposal which set a deadline for negotiations to work establishing a new Arab State for the self-proclaimed Palestinians with the 1949 Armistice and pre Six Day War Green Line borders should Israel not reach an agreement which the PA accepts. Many wonder what reason the PA would have to accept any deal with their maximalist demands being the default to be applied if they remain, as they have in all previous talks, stanchly refusing every offer knowing that they get the entire ball of wax with half of Jerusalem as their capital city. Should they get United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven and not need to settle for either a Chapter Six or a General Assembly Resolution (which they have numerous of these unenforceable General Assembly Resolutions from over the years) which are unenforceable, they would have the whole world to back them with enforcement this time. They have worked for years to internationalize the conflict in order to use international military forces to enforce whatever monstrosity comes from the United Nations.

The one thing which appears to have escaped everybody is how will the militaries of the supporting nations deal with terrorists attacks when the multinational forces and the initial Americans, Frenchmen, British and whomever else has their nations’ troops vulnerable to attacks from the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State, al Qaeda and who knows who else places their troops in such a vulnerable position. The United States need only look back at the events after the United States and allies had vanquished the Iraqi military and were simply assisting with security while a new governance had risen from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix. There was a rub that not all of the citizens and others in theater were on the same page as the allied forces. That resulted in the ever increasing lethality of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Device) and ambushes cost the United States and its allies thousands of lives making the entire intervention go from Hero to Zero overnight. Deploying American troops in such a scenario would simply be too costly and gain population rejection almost from the start and all the more so definitely should GIs start being ambushed while deployed against Israel. The real disaster would be anti-Semitism which would build up as Israel would ultimately be blamed for any deaths should the deployment of troops prove necessitated as the media would claim that it was Israeli resistance to what was declared universally as a fair and just resolution to a seriously impossible and intractable problem. The reality would be the demands for allied troops to protect the Arab Palestinians from Israeli interventions and punishments meted out by Israel Defense Forces in response to terrorist attacks with return counter-fire and potentially incursions made to prevent known terror threats which would be explained as legitimate operations as the original occupation from 1948 had still not been resolved and the remainder of the Jews occupying Islamic land had to be resolved exactly as the 1967 occupations. What many are not aware, the Arab Muslims claim that any lands which were ever trod by a Muslim must forever remain as Islamic lands. This is behind their claims to Andalusia which to you and me is better known as Spain, Portugal and southern France all the way to Tours where the Islamic invaders were finally vanquished. Of course there are also the Islamic claims that the United States and Italy, or more accurately, Vatican City and Rome must be liberated from the infidel and purified with fire. Many of these claims are borderline to actually delusional but that has never stood in the way of Islamic claims to lands across the globe as their desire and intent is to continue to slaughter the disbelievers until the entire world is Muslim, their particular kind of Muslim, Sunni or Shia or some other groups or Arab or Hashemite or Saudi or Alawite or virtually any existing group of Muslim believers as each believe they are the true and sole possessors of the divine message as the Quran dictates and is interpreted.

 

All of this relates back to what some claim was an Arab verse and other credit the Bedouins which related an order of allegiances which goes something like the below quote.

انا على أخوي وأنا وأخوي على ابن عمي وأنا وابن عمي على الغريب

Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against the world.

A longer version we once had referenced went through the entirety of the hierarchal structure starts the same and continues as follows, “Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against our family, my family against the tribe, our tribe against the nation, our nation against the world.” Following such a structure the fighting continues until one attains the base allegiance, namely unto oneself. This reasoning is reminiscent of the Highlander series where a universal group of immortals must battle each other out beheading every opponent until, as the theme claimed, until there is only one. It does not take much to realize the complete insanity of such a structure for basing a society. Islam takes this as there can be only one state with one religion the world over and there can be no deviation from the instructions in the Quran which demands that Islam become universal, and the struggles witnessed between the Shia and Sunni one immediately sees where this could lead as each group claims the other to be an apostate and thus to be eradicated or forced to convert to the other form of Islam. One can only wonder how selective could things get with Syria as a prime example as the many Sunni groups fight against the Alawites of Bashir al-Assad while also fighting one another for dominance with the many factions each holding their own territories and fighting the others making temporary truces in order to strike another only to be fighting one another the next week and in the end there may simply be nothing left to inherit as everything has been destroyed, and Syria is rapidly reaching that point with Iraq not far behind.

 

But the Obama administration has as their goal to assist with the destruction of Israel replacing the Jewish State with a war between Hamas and the PA/PLO whichever one wins then facing Hezballah or Islamic State or both as again each believes they are the sole true form of Islam and there must be one pure form having purged the world of the other, every last other. Israel this year, Europe within the decade and then where? The United States, Russia, Canada, who can tell? The one truth we must learn before it is too late, whichever Islamic group eventually proves to be the victor, they will enforce a world where the Quran and Hadiths as they interpret them are the only knowledge one will be permitted and surrender to Allah and whoever claims to be his most strident supporter giving over one’s will to live, other than that, the rest is easy. What will be the result if American men, women and service members, many simply young men and women barely old enough to vote are slaughtered in the name of Islam while they are presumably guarding those who want to murder them from the Israelis who only wish to live without having to constantly look over one’s shoulder for the next crazy with a Kitchen knife or pair of scissors trying to stab them simply because they are different, and that includes anyone not recognized by the person stabbing even if they are Arab or Muslim or both Arab and Muslim and just unknown to the youth with a death wish stabbing their way into paradise just as the Imam and PA/PLO instigators incited them.
