My America Where Have You Gone

America, with two synagogues the targets of anti-Semitic shootings within six-months, it is difficult to recognize you. Yes, we have witnessed anti-Semitism more often than most, but we expected this when more often than not being the only Jew residing for miles around. Sure, we have heard all the anti-Semitic banter which goes on in certain neighborhoods where they perceive it is safe because all the Jews live over in that fancy and expensive neighborhood and none live here where some make minimum wage. They were, of course, wrong as they were eventually informed. Whenever moving into one of these neighborhoods, the idea was to get a lay of the land, figure out who was who and identify the true anti-Semite from the one who basically was unknowingly going along to get along and probably never knowingly met anyone who was Jewish. Yes, there are numerous neighborhoods across America which meet these criteria. Those whose laughing and hardly ever repeating the anti-Semitic jokes and stories were the ones who became very curious and asked a gazillion questions when they realized there was a Jew amongst the neighborhood. Then there were those others who, at worst, were arming themselves with eggs and toilet paper and the house took the better parts of a day to clean up. Amazingly, many others would pitch in and help clean up the mayhem from the night before. These events almost always came at the same time as crucial holidays such as Easter, Christmas and, of course, Halloween. But they did not enter synagogues with weapons and murder people. The worst of the Jew haters largely resorted to name-calling, look which could kill and other passive aggressive acts. That was then, this is the new world where anti-Semitism comes with violent assaults upon Jewish places of worship and now the newspaper which claims to “print all the news that is fit to print,” has published in its international edition an anti-Semitic cartoon worthy of Joseph Goebbels (see below).

The America I knew would be up in arms and enraged at these open displays of hatred and disharmony, discordance, acrimony, mind-bending hate and open-ended accusations by all sides against any who dare disagree with their particular politics. That is the current state of social media which is anything but social. We retain some who serve up dishes of bile just to keep ourselves grounded and to assist us in attempting to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Then again, we remember when exclusive meant that if you had to ask the price of an entrée offered on the menu, not to worry, you could not afford it and likely could not even afford just desert. That is no longer the definition of that word, today it means that should you deviate one iota from a narrowly defined ritual which fell within specific beliefs, then you were not only not welcome but also to be the target of scorn, contempt, derision and even the most ego destroying fate possible, being unfriended. But in some parts the hate is hot and so overt that lives are the cost of falling outside of acceptable, and it goes beyond anti-Semitism; sometimes it was purely political, sometimes it was purely hate and other times it was a bit of both such as the shooting at Republican Congressional baseball practice on June 14, 2017, in Alexandria, Virginia. Another item which is frightening is that these perpetrators of such violence have no regrets beyond the fact they were unable to murder more of their intended target group. What is worse is that in some places, politicians will defend these actions blaming the victims inevitably claiming that they brought this upon themselves. If only they would have acted more proper, defined as holding the political and social desires and positions that the speaker holds and any deviation is considered ample provocation for violence.

 

Then there are the great cover-ups by much of the Western European media. One of our favorite editorialists, Giulio Meotti has written three very engaging articles of late, “Killed a Jew? In France that makes you unfit for trial,” “Write it correctly: Islamic massacre of Christians” and France, the aspiring Judenrein Islamic Republic showcasing some of the problems in Europe. When we speak with politically active friends from the United States, they tell a tale of woe, sorrow and regrets over the state of civility, or should we say the lack thereof, and how the disruptive level of hatred is coming from so many directions that it makes it almost impossible to meet the expectations of most people. They tell of how at work, as conservatives, they keep a low profile never discussing anything about politics and never ever expressing any comments about morality and their regrets on the current state of civility and society. They try to explain how the way we acted speaking proudly of our beliefs and positions would prevent being promoted, could get us fired and would definitely have us treated as pariahs. Things in one of our old stomping grounds have changed and we cannot say for the better unfortunately. Our dear friend from even out in the western regions of the United States, not California, Oregon or Washington, but we are talking Colorado and to a far lesser degree Wyoming. They tell the story of those others who are moving from California and other leftist strongholds to their former haven and immediately forming committees and boards making demands for changes and literally begin to transform their new home to resemble exactly their former home which they left as it had become unbearable. Sometimes we wonder if people even know how to think anymore. These people are doing exactly the same thing which failed before expecting a different result. There is a name for that and Albert Einstein defined that for us, he called it insanity.

 

We would like to say that we have no idea where the signs we are seeing will lead but that would be a small white lie. The reason for small is because we do not know exactly, white because we wanted to have at least one trigger word, and lie because we do have a general idea where things are headed. If you learned a fair amount of history either in regimented study or on your own, then you can likely see the writing on the wall. For those who are unable to see the writing, it stated the following; War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is strength and concluded with 2+2=5. There is just a whiff of the stench of Big Brother when the government collects every electronic signal in the world and stores it all on the set of buildings pictured below somewhere in Nevada. Of course, nobody is listening to your every word, but say the wrong word and a computer raises a little flag and then a real person has to decide if you are a threat or the word bomb got into your text because you said, “Wasn’t last night just the bomb?” There is an entire list of such words and other conditions programmed into this data center of all data centers. But you would have to work at it to get on their lists, or would you. Gain ballot access as a third-party candidate and be flagged as not a kook and you become a “person of interest” which gets you monitored. But that was then and this is now.

Civility has lost all meaning and has been replaced with a strict set of guidelines which leaves one walking a virtual tightrope so as not to disturb the easily disturbed. There are trigger words, and just in case you are becoming more sly about your word transgressions, there are a larger set of things which come under the definition of microaggressions. College courses come with trigger word warnings which probably will come into use in the course. These warnings are there so that college students, our future leaders, can avoid the unbelievable stress of hearing a word such as “shooting,” “rape” or any of a variety of phrases, many of which would be expected in any course say on the history of warfare. Colleges have safe spaces where students can flee after being triggered by a microaggression and find counseling, coloring books, puppies, kittens and soothing music. Basic training in the military now have stress cards which basic training troops can flag their Drill Sargent all but forcing them to be granted some time out as they collect their strength, thinking, body, mind, attitude or whatever they feel is needful of some alone time. Is nothing sacred anymore? When in basic training, we were referred to as maggots amongst some other far more colorful names. No time out cards, just a boot in your, you figure it out. Just avoiding any of those horrible trigger words or causing a microaggression. What is rather amazing is how the political tables have changed when referencing both Republican and Democrat positions and how civility has found a new home after being squandered where its former place had been. Civility and acceptance with those on the political left where the main theme was everybody is much the same and all should and could be friends. Differences were more accepted by the liberals of those days. Now those on the left demand that everyone sticks to a rigid definition of what is acceptable and what is beyond the pale. Some of the most glaringly obvious examples has been shown by those of the LGBTQ community and the Women’s Movement. In both cases, any reference which is perceived as supporting Israel is forbidden. This was made an exclusionary criterion of the Chicago Dyke March where a Jewish LGBTQ groups were denied the right to join the march as their flag displayed a Star of David which was far too Jewish and implied a pro-Israel probable position (see image below). Teresa Shook, one of the original co-founders of the Women’s Movement, has declared her ire at the anti-Semitic leanings of the new leadership and demanded on Facebook that they step down as they have been completely ineffective in preventing hate from seeping into the movement. These are just a small sampling and the one item all too many of these episodic exclusions have in common is their anti-Semitic nature. This has even spread of late into the House of Representatives where recently elected trio of Representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib have made news with their anti-Israel and potentially anti-Semitic tirades. Israel is rapidly becoming a partisan issue with the far-left desiring breaking all ties between the United States and the Jewish State.

It used to be that virtually all anti-Semitism came from the fringe of the far-right, sometimes referred to as the Paleo-conservatives, where it was rare and merely a very minor group. With the more recent anti-Semitism forming at the opposite end of the political spectrum, anti-Semitism has seeped into the politics of both ends of the political spectrum. The far right appears to have grown as some have found cover from the left anti-Semitism which has brought many out of the woodwork. This may have had some play in these recent Synagogue shootings. What is more troubling has been the excusing of anti-Semitism, especially in Europe where it is often covered up. Add in the influx of Islamic immigrants bringing their Jew hatred with them from the Middle East and North Africa, and you have a growing group which will not stay at the margins of either Europe or America. Their anti-Semitism, often in the form of anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism, has already begun to infect the societal bodies of the Western World. Thinking about where this will lead and some of the inevitabilities makes one’s brain hurt and does not leave one comforted about the future. Imagine a world where the only places where anti-Semitism is not prevalent are regions of Asia and Africa with the Americas and Europe mired with anti-Semitism. This will be a world where Jews almost exclusively reside in Israel and have no place left in the Western World. This is the future which is beginning to become the obvious outcome if the Western World does not awaken to where they are being taken. The thing to remember is the quote of the wise words from Martin Niemöller who awakened to the inevitable result of where the Third Reich was heading and wrote this statement about the horror he saw coming, “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.” Is this the end coming for what has been the most free and advanced society the planet has known? The possibility is sickeningly possible as one need remember that Germany was considered the great Weimar Republic with unmatched freedoms, many of the greatest minds on the planet such as Hertha Sponer, Albert Einstein, Hugo Grotrian, Ingrid Franck, Wilhelm Westphal, James Franck, Otto von Bayer, Lise Meitner, Werner Heisenberg, Peter Pringsheim, Fritz Haber, Wernher von Braun, Gustav Hertz, and Otto Hahn to name just a few. Germany was at the forefront of physics, mathematics, chemistry and virtually every field of cultured society before the rise of the Nazis. Is this the path the world is going to trudge down once again? If that is so, then we need to pray for a divine intervention.

The World has Become Filled with a Vicious, Malignant Hatred

 

The recent statements criticizing and condemning Israel using millennial anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter and in her worlds to the United States House of Representatives by Ilhan Omar have received some attention and even glorification in certain circles. These spiteful and hate-filled condemnations of Israel were not enough. Ilhan Omar went on to use another slur, this time against American Jews and Jews who are not Israeli in general accusing them of holding dual loyalties and inferring that their affiliation to Israel was stronger than their love for the United States. She continued claiming that the Jewish Israel lobby, targeting AIPAC, was buying support for Israel, through what could only be taken to mean bribes, commenting that support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins Baby!” She made a half-faced apology which was more her being upset that her words were not taken as formal critic of American foreign policy and honest assessment that American Jews are unworthy as Americans due to lack of support. Her perturbations were swept aside and deemed a closed affair with the passing of what we were initially told would be a commitment by the House of Representatives against anti-Semitism but the reality was a generalized condemnation of anti-Semitism along with Islamophobia, immigrants, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, LGBT people, and members of other religious minorities and hate generally. The clincher that Ms. Omar’s derogatory and degrading comments denying equality to the Jewish State and the Jewish supporters of Israel were deemed not to be denounced or protested was that fact that she is still sitting on the Foreign Affairs Committee in the House and as such will have a strong format from which to continue her spite and hate for Israel as well as be permitted to know every detail of intelligence which may be presented to this vital committee where sensitive and often classified information is openly discussed. The greater part of shame, though, is not with Ms. Omar but with the Jewish supporters for Israel and the entirety of the House of Representatives, if not the entire Congress, sitting on their hands refusing to call out the anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic accusations presented before the Congress.

 

But the problem does not stop with just Ilhan Omar; there was also the follow-on accusation from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez immediately following the presumed pushback against Ms. Omar when Ms. Cortez complained about how AIPAC, that pro-Israel Jewish lobbying group, was targeting her and Ms. Omar as well as Rashida Tlaib, the new Representative who has claimed that she also represents the State of Palestine and is in the Congress to be their spokesperson. Do not fear, there will be no complaint of Ms. Tlaib having dual loyalties; she does not support Israel or any other traditional American ally. There was so much left out of this debate, if such a one sided series of events can be called a debate. The small, little, insignificant information which was remarkably not mentioned is that Saudi Arabia and Qatar, amongst others, spend tens of millions of dollars more on lobbying the Congress than AIPAC. There was no mention that numerous Arab and Muslim nations have bought the Chair of Middle Eastern Studies and stacked the professors with anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and often anti-Semitic individuals. Further, these nations are buying sufficient influence over many of the most prestigious Universities to such an extent that it has become commonplace for anti-Israel slant being found in other departments and often the faculty overseeing the school newspaper, deciding which committees are permitted funding and backing by the University and sponsoring anti-Israel events throughout the school year as well as often turning a blind eye when conservative or pro-Israel speakers are denied venue or have their events violently protested including shouting down the speaker so they are not permitted to speak and even physical threats such that speakers have required police escort in order to escape the campus mob. There is far more to the spreading around the world of anti-Semitism often packaged as anti-Zionism, anti-Israelism and Zionism equals racism.

 

The problem is more advanced in Europe where many Jews have ceased wearing a Kippah (Yarmulke) or jewelry and other items which would identify them as Jews. France was forced to use military troops to protect Synagogues and Jewish schools including Jewish pre-school daycares. In Britain, the Labour Party has had a running problem with anti-Semitism. Some of the Labour Party elected officeholders and party leadership have resigned or have been censored for making anti-Semitic remarks. Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn has faced accusation of his holding anti-Semitic positions and beliefs. He has simply brushed such criticism aside as if they were nothing and has been granted apparent immunity from such claims. Further, when the Labour Party performed an investigation into the possibility that there was a problem with anti-Semitism in their party, so an inquiry whose remit would be to recommend how Labour could best tackle instances of racism, including cases of antisemitism and Islamophobia, with Baroness Shami Chakrabarti as the person placed in charge, they unsurprisingly were given a fairly clean bill of health. What made this result both unsurprising and uninspiring confidence was the problem that Baroness Shami Chakrabarti has faced criticisms as being anti-Israel and anti-Zionist to such an extent as to have probably made her a less than wonderful choice. There were no smiles from British Jews at her appointment and little if any surprise that she found that there was a higher likelihood of Islamophobic beliefs than of anti-Semitic and that much, if not most, of the presumed anti-Semitism was actually proper condemnation of Israeli policies and political leaders and their treatment of Palestinians and the apparent lack of commitment for peace by the Israeli government. This may pass muster with the British Labour Party, but it did not receive any glowing commendations and there were many calls for an outside investigation into the potential problem and not to accept the cover-up.

 

Then there have been the reactions from the Jewish communities throughout Europe. Recent polling and surveys have revealed that as many as forty-percent of British Jews are seriously considering departing as their lives have been threatened or other forms of intimidation and threats including their fear of anti-Jewish terrorism. Many are eying the United States but a majority has stated that Israel is amongst the nations they are considering or have already chosen. French Jews have become common in Israel with people hearing French spoken in areas of the Tel Aviv metropolitan region. The Jews who remain in France also are considering their potions due to the rampant anti-Semitism they have experienced. Britain and France have the two largest Jewish communities in Europe, so what they decide is important, is becoming influential and can sway the decision by Jews in other countries. A survey conducted by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights at the end of last year found forty-percent of European Jews have considered leaving their home countries over the past five years because of rising anti-Semitism. This figure very much is reflective of the trend in both France and Britain.

What is even more frightening is the trending decrease in the Jewish population in Europe since the end of the Second World War and with it, the decline in the percentage of Jews residing in the continent (see graphs below). Since the end of the war in 1945, the number of Jews in Europe has dropped by over sixty-three-percent, a drastic reduction by any calculation and it might be ready to shrink even faster. The Arab world divorced themselves largely of their Jews in the decade of the fifties after the end of the 1948-9 war with Israel conducted by six Arab armies and a number of militias and support from other Arab nations. Partly, this exodus of Jews from Europe has aided Israeli population growth. And it is not just Europe where Jews have been departing in great numbers. The Jews in South Africa are departing reportedly due to high crime rates, anti-white animus and the accompanying anti-Semitism which has also been on the rise. On November 21, 1984, Israel began Operation Moses, a seven-week clandestine mission to bring more than 8,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. But this was not to be the final chapter in the return of the Ethiopian Jews. May 24-25, 1991, almost the entire Jewish Ethiopian community was repatriated to Israel in an incredibly complex operation, and the largest air-train in the history of Israel called Operation Solomon. There has also been the return of the Jews from India who have been welcomed home. The rise in anti-Semitism in the world will serve to increase the rate at which Jews return to their homeland from the Diaspora. But that begs the question of where Israel will place everyone should the population due to immigration triple.

The answer to the question is that we have a large expanse which is not very populated, we call it the Negev. Yes, it is supposedly a desert. We are Israel and will make even the Negev bloom. Install three or four more desalinization plants and a nuclear reactor or two generating electricity and we will be good to go. One fact which bears remembering, the main number of Jews outside of Israel are in the United States. While the United States was once the nation with the largest number of Jews, about a decade ago that was no longer a valid claim as the Jewish population in Israel surpassed that of the United States. The reality in the United States is that many Jewish communities will be all but a memory within twenty years or soon thereafter. This is due to the Jews leaving the faith and becoming Secular Humanists. These are Jews who are finding their identity within politics and their fellow travelers. Most of these Jews are far left and basically a product of the best indoctrination money can buy, and that indoctrination never comes cheaply. They have entered and graduated college, possibly with a higher degree or even a doctorate, but as long as their degree is in the social sciences, their education was more than likely a thorough brainwashing from which many will never recover. That is the state of higher education in many fields and too many schools where part of the curriculum is learning to hate Israel and for many also how to be suspect that the Jew next to you may be an Israeli spy. Well, it may not be all completely gone beyond the cusp and fallen into the abyss, but in far too many high profile schools, there exists an undertow of anti-Israelism and a breeding for anti-Semitism on campus. This may result in some Jews rediscovering that they are Jewish while others will distance themselves as far from Israel and will become some of the most rabid pro-Palestinians on campus as they go to any extreme to prove they are part of the in-crowd. How this will end is still to be determined, but in all honesty, it does not look like there will be a happy ending to this story. The United States was behind Europe in this race to extinction, but it appears that they are catching up and doing so with a vengeance. So, once again the world is racing to figure out what to do with the Jew. Thank Hashem for Israel and this permits the Jews to have an escape plan, something we have lacked for close if not over two-thousand years. If for no other reason, Israel is needed for that day when the world decides that the Jew must be driven from before them, this time they have a place of refuge. Perhaps this is the purpose of the rise in anti-Semitism, to drive every Jew to either leave their religion and family (Jews are both family and coreligionists) or to return to their ancestral home and learn how good it can be to be a Jew residing in Israel.

The International Ploy to Destroy Israel

 

The Arabs generally and the Palestinian Arabs particularly will never give-up on their dreams to destroy Israel. The history of this is something which we have spoken of before and will not repeat the litany of pogroms, riots, wars and propaganda thrown at this obsession since the start of the return of Zionist Jews over a century and a half, from the 1850’s to the modern era. The cost in lives and treasure to both sides is incalculable. What we wish to discuss here is the latest pathway, the new strategy, which has been employed largely by Mahmoud Abbas over the last decade and a half and now more generally by Palestinian Authority (PA) officials as well as a smattering of others. The most recent use came from Palestinian Authority official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki. The tactic is referred to as internationalizing the problem and it is only natural that the root of the problem and the cause for it remaining unsolved would be pressing for another route to futility. The one secret which is seldom admitted in English, but spoken of quite freely in Arabic, is that any solution which allows for even the smallest remnant of Israel as a Jewish State remains, the Arabs will refuse to end their working to destroy that entity. The sole acceptable final solution is a form of the Final Solution which some have claimed was introduced in the Wannsee Conference by the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini who spent World War II working with the Nazis and mixing amongst the elite in Berlin. This has been carried down through the interceding time by his protégés Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas. Obviously, this illness is contagious as the entirety of the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds are thoroughly infected and the contagion is sweeping through Europe once more with the seeds already sprouting in the United States. We have already witnessed this disease of the mind and heart take command of a conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.

Further breakouts of this disease have taken the form of Zionism equals racism which was passed by the United Nations General Assembly in their Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 with 32 abstentions, which actually stated that the United Nations General Assembly has “determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.” It took sixteen years before the United Nations revoked their Zionism is racism manifesto in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 which read as follows, “The General Assembly Decides to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975.” That was quite a bit less lengthy than the original which referred to Zionism at least three times in expounding on it as being every form of racism. Well we guess that apologies are often less full of bluster and considered appropriate opprobrium as embarrassment is best stated as one is moving past as rapidly as they are able. It would be difficult to be more curt than that removal of a stain which had been worn by most in that world body with pride and in many a way is still worn with prideful abandon to this day.

 

Meanwhile, PA official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki speaking at the MED Dialogues conference in Rome insisted, “The Palestinians are still waiting for the international community to try to resolve the Palestinian problem that has been created by the international community.” With this, he continued blaming the international community with the foundation of Israel in 1948. Quoting further protestations, he continued, “Unfortunately, none of you is taking serious, credible and responsible steps to solve the problem.” Then turning to defame both President Trump and his entire administration, Riyad al-Maliki added, “which has really sided with Israel, taken the wrong side of history, of justice.” Wrong side of justice, really? But he was far from finished, as he stated further, “If the Americans are not willing to do anything, Europe should do that.” And finally getting to the point, he insisted, “We should force the change to happen, that’s why we are pushing for a European role” including backing an international peace conference.” Finally, we have the crescendo heading to the conclusion which is, “It’s not our responsibility to protect the two-state solution, it’s your responsibility.” I don’t believe any of you will accept another apartheid regime to emerge in the 21st century.” Remember that Mahmoud Abbas has flatly refused to even consider any proposal put forth by President Trump and is now insisting that an international group resembling the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for its make-up be established to decide the fates of the PA and Israel.

 

Why are they insisting on such an assembly that will decide what actually needs to be resolved between the two parties? The reason is that the Palestinian Arabs’ leaders do not desire a solution but dissolution of the Jewish State and they know a UNGA styled conglomerate would easily pass anything the Arabs proposed while refusing everything proposed in favor of Israel. They would readily accept making Palestine defined as the Green Line and the Jordan River with its capital in East Jerusalem and then further rule that Israel be ruled by Arab leadership where there are guarantees that the Jews will be treated as the world body would expect. Somehow, such a situation does not fill the Jews of Israel as an idea with which we would be able to live, and that is our main problem with having the Arabs as our masters, history had taught us how that would end. All one need do is look at the vast majority of resolutions condemning Israel passed by the UNGA as well as the Human Rights Council, UNICEF, UNESCO and the other various tentacles of the United Nations. The General Assembly on these matters likely averages, we estimate, at 115 favor sanctioning Israel, 9 opposes such sanctioning and around 35 abstain or vote present. Is it any wonder that Israel would refuse to allow for her fate to be decided largely by the 57 Muslim States in league with the majority of the over 100 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement of developing nations? That would be very similar to over one-hundred hungry wolves with around ten fat and happy sheep surrounded by thirty-five large rocks all voting as to what should be dinner. The rocks do not care, the sheep bleat softly unable to be heard over the cacophonic din of howling wolves right before their feast. That is what the Palestinian Arabs are seeking, complete and total victory leading to the eradication of the Zionist entity and those who comprise the Jewish State.

 

As stated, this ploy is not new and will fail as it has to this point. The problem comes when one realizes that every last demand ever made by the Arabs has eventually come to pass. They simply choose the next target and then relentlessly pursue that goal using Saudi and others oil money and skillful use of all forms of media, something easily accomplished with the funds available. This has been carried further with oil money buying Middle East Department Chair which determine the course material and information provided, none of which gives Israel even the hint of legitimacy and proclaims the lie that Israel was Europe’s apology for the Holocaust. This is completely invalid as the initial start for the founding of Israel was the formal agreement to accept the Balfour Declaration letter of 1917 enjoining it to the San Remo Conference which was adopted further by the League of Nations into the Mandate System which was adopted by the United States in the Anglo-American Treaty and finally adopted by the United Nations in Article 80 of their charter. All of these events dated before World War II with the exception of the United Nations assuming responsibility for final enforcement of the Mandates from after World War I. Further steps are in the works and already bearing fruit for the Arab side as they are gaining influence on the public school systems and particularly the printing of history books and their references to the Middle East even to have included maps which show Israel as an invader which is erasing a former nation of Palestine. The small and possibly insignificant truth is that there has never been a nation called Palestine, no nation other than modern and ancient Israel and Judea have had Jerusalem as their capital city. Yet the insistence is that history must teach how the Jews have usurped the lands west of the Jordan River blaming it on European colonialism and demanding that the Jews return to their origins in Europe. That begs the question as to what the other half of Israeli Jews, whose nation of origins which forced them out after stealing their wealth, businesses, homes and anything valuable were the numerous Arab states, supposed to do. Will Libya, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and the rest take back these Jews and their children and grandchildren? That is highly doubtful. Then there are the children whose parents are one from Europe and the other from an Arab nation, what to do with these children. Perhaps this is where the solution by King Solomon might apply, well, except the Arabs claim that King Solomon either never existed and never built any temple or that he was a Muslim and he build a Mosque. Colleges across Europe and the United States are teaching a creeping form of anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism and are taking no discernable efforts to curb anti-Semitism. These are the future leaders of the world, the nations of Europe and the United States as well as Canada, and their falsehoods learned now as the real truth will forever have effects upon their thinking. This is part of why the Palestinian Arabs refuse every treaty which leaves Israel existing in any form as the Jewish State and not with the Arabs ruling over the Jews, as they explain, the Quran states that this is the natural order of the world. The Quran also divides the world into two camps, the one of peace where Islam rules and the ones of war waiting to be conquered by Islamic forces. The Quran presumably claims that no lands once ruled by a Muslim must ever be permitted rule by any other. That makes Israel a problem as long as it is ruled by Jews.

 

This Arab-Israeli conflict is a simple conflict to understand once the reality is understood. This is not a war over land, if that were the case, it would have been resolved by now. This is not about Israel being a colonial power placed in the heart of the Islamic world. That claim is a simple means of falsifying the Jews claim to their ancient homelands. As far as Islam is concerned, the Jews never resided in the area of Israel despite evidence. This is true under Islam which believes that history started when Islamic forces marched against the Jews of Medina and against Mecca before moving out of the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the world. That was between 710 and 725 A.D. This is why they missed ancient Israel which was destroyed by Rome in 135 A.D. and its peoples spread throughout the Empire so as to assure that the world would never again know the Jews, just as they had dispersed the Carthaginians in order to erase them as a people. Today one would be hard pressed to find a Carthaginian and despite being a small minority, the Jews still exist and leave their mark on the world. Sometimes these newer religions have a difficulty imagining the Jews who have a three-thousand year plus history going back to somewhere around 2500B.C.E. when Abraham left for the lands the Lord would show him. That actually would mean that the history of the Jewish People which begins with the birth of the Israelites with Abraham making the contract with Hashem somewhere around 4500 years ago. That was when the initial promise was made. Somewhere soon after this date was when Abraham paid premium price to purchase the Cave outside Hevron in which to bury Sarah. Eventually Sarah would be joined in burial there by Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Leah all in good time. The cave and the field before it were purchased by Abraham which was the first area of land that our forefather purchased and from which Israel came into being. That is the Jewish claim to these lands.

 

This war is to deny the Jews a homeland and to make them wanderers despised wherever they reside. The Muslims do not recognize any right of the Jews as they see the Jew as an accursed brute to be scorned and put down regarding them as barely human. The hatred taught by Islam of the Jews is beyond imagination. People from the Western developed world cannot begin to fathom the vile acrimonious contempt the Middle Eastern Arab Muslims feel towards Jews. That is the basis for their war against Israel. Just review the history. Half a dozen Arab nations sent their armies to aid the militias in destroying the Jewish State on the morning of her birth in 1948 and they failed. Again, in 1967 we had the Six Day War where Arab forces from at least six or seven nations failed to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the Sea. In 1973, there was another attempt to destroy the Jewish entity during the Yom Kippur War, and again they failed. This was the turning point when the Arab world invented a proxy to fight in their stead, the Palestinian Arabs. They were to utilize terror, warfare, propaganda and would be aided by the Arab world in destroying Israel in stages. This is a war of annihilation where the Jews must be eradicated. Hamas has in their charter the demand that every last Jew be hunted down and murdered. The PLO were not much different, they only claimed the desire to murder every Zionist and Jew in Israel. Do not believe the false claims that if only Israel would grant them their state that all would be well. Israel completely evacuated Gaza of Jews and any Israelis even those not Jewish and turned it over to the Arabs and we see what that produced, and it was a far cry from peace.

 

This is not a war over land, not a war over nationhood, not a war in any normal modern rules of engagement; it is a war of extermination and there will not be peace as long as Israel exists. Simply stated, Israel must be destroyed and the Jewish State be no more with all the Jews being slaughtered as would most of the Christians and people of other faiths. Even should Israel clear Gaza of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and allow Gaza to rule itself as a protected area where the IDF freely operates to prevent any terrorist group from starting to try and take control while clearing Area C of the Shomron and allowing the PA to rule as a semiautonomous region also protected by the IDF, this would not even approach being the end of the claims of the Arabs and their allies. Should the situation on all fronts explode into violence simultaneously, with Gaza, Shomron and Lebanon, overseen by Hamas, the PLO and Hezballah, throwing everything they could at Israel and Israel counterstrike destroying all adversaries, that would only allow a pause. There would then begin terror strikes across all borders. In Lebanon Israel would be holding everything south of the Litani River and to the east there are the Golan Heights and the Jordan River and to the south Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula, a wild place inhabited largely by terrorists and criminal elements and largely untamed by Egypt. The war would continue and there is nothing which Israel could do to end this conflict. Even should Israel turn off the electricity, natural gas, water and end the tractor-trailers carrying tons of goods daily into Gaza, they would simply allow their public to live without basic necessities just to continue to manufacture rockets to fire into Israel. They would continue to surround the rocket launchers with children, have women encircle any building Hamas needs and have their commanders and leaders crawling into their bunker located under the al-Shifa Hospital. The only way for peace to be attained is either Israel and the Jews are destroyed or Islam reaches a point where they no longer insist that they rule the world and every knee bend to Allah. The first is not going to happen if it can be avoided and the second will not be an easy transformation. Despite what the developed world thinks, there are still those whose fancy is to rule the entirety of the globe, and those who merely desire to take the initial steps feeling assured that their efforts would lead to world domination. Apparently, world domination had rested on waiting for Israel to be crushed. As Israel has resisted crushing, the Muslim world has already begun to prepare for the second phase, infiltration through massive illegal immigrants just entering demanding asylum. These waves have struck Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, Greece and have begun in North America. Apparently, Israel is contained though they will always try and destroy her. The question before the world now is how they are going to deal with creeping Sharia and its implications. The time to act has long passed and still little if anything has been performed which would act to prevent Sharia from entering our nations as it is a means of implanting an Islamic jurisprudence. What to do if the two sets of laws are in contradiction, the state law wins, initially followed by nightly rioting burning vehicles and terrorizing neighborhoods and pickets outside the Congress and other houses of parliament demanding that Islamic law is supreme and their old laws must yield to Sharia. Wake up now before it is too late, or is it already too late for most of Europe. Israel will hang on and remain, will your nation?
