How Much of a Hint Does it Take Netanyahu?

 

Trump and those around him as well as many others in and out of the media and throughout the blogosphere have been all but screaming repeatedly that Israel had the blessings of the White House to annex all of Judea and Samaria. There have even been those, and we may as well join this group as it is our hope as well, that Netanyahu could exile Mahmoud Abbas and his entire band of merry terrorists and nobody in the White House would utter a peep of objection. There are teeming commentaries all puzzled and confused at why Netanyahu and the rest of the Israeli political leaders are so filled with trepidations over doing what needs be done. It is as if they believe that Israel is loved and respected throughout Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and in all the leftist and Arabist capitals of the world and acting to annex lands which belongs to Israel by International Law and even the United Nations Charter in Article 80 would somehow make Israel disliked, unfriended on Facebook or something equally horrible. News flash; much of Europe hates Israel and are already making plans to boycott Israeli goods even with Israel doing little or nothing. The world is going to condemn Israel for simply existing and nothing the leadership does or does not do short of marching the Israeli Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims into the Mediterranean Sea will make any difference. There is nothing standing between Israel and a solution to the Arab difficulties simply by allowing the Palestinian Arabs to rule themselves in each city and community where they currently live and grant them alien resident status. Israel could end the laws restricting the sale of land by Arabs to anybody other than another Arab and even give a financial award to those Arabs who desired to move elsewhere. All of this could be done and within a few years the world would adjust to the new reality, especially if the lives of the Palestinian Arabs improved, something all but inevitable once the crooks running the Palestinian Authority (PA) are removed from the scene. That would be even more true should the world continue their financial support even at one quarter the level now being granted. Simply removing the United Nations and European Union NGOs and other organizations and replacing them with local elected Arab governance in each location and having Israel establish infrastructure and other basic services and government services would serve the Arab Palestinian population bringing them quickly near the same level as the rest of Israel in opportunities and services.

 

We have repeatedly spelled out how Israel could liberate the Arab Palestinians and even allow them a path for becoming Israelis if they so desired. In the meantime allowing them to elect new leadership is a healthy first step to solving many of their problems. Secondly, having their education system teach skills, math, science and the rest of a regular curriculum instead of using the schools for fomenting hatred and terrorism would ready their youth for a rewarding future filled with opportunity. Giving them a culture based on living and promise rather than on death and destruction and removing the oppressive governance and dictatorship of corruption and violence which has been imposed upon their society under the PA and Mahmoud Abbas. When one discovers that Mahmoud Abbas and many of his cronies have embezzled hundreds of millions of dollars and Euros since taking over the PA after Arafat died with billions of dollars and Euros in Swiss accounts which his wife now lives a royal life in Paris, their anger should assist in the impetus to drive them into exile. Right now if an Arab living under the PA is accused of selling land or even an apartment to a Jew they can be sentenced to death. What is even worse is that once one is accused of such a serious criminal act under the Jordanian Law which Israel allows the PA to impose, whether they are found guilty or not makes little difference. What is horrifying is that despite Abbas not allowing a single execution for committing this crime there have been numerous individuals executed by enforcers often from the PA security forces or simply their fellow Arabs simply because of the anger quipped up by their peers. Removing such a societal violence and the rewarding encouragement by officials and replacing them with normal civilization based on law and order enforced fairly with a high level of normalcy will alter their subconscious normalcy to that of a productive society. With time and positive enforcement the Arab Palestinian society can be returned to a civil and ordered society based on the greatest good rather than their current societal norm of hate, violence and destructive behavior. None of this is possible without the initial step of Israel taking responsibility for all the people living within her borders and granting to all the same opportunity for well-being, wealth and a normal and healthy life equipped with an education which allows for the pursuit of a happy and productive future.

The sooner that Israeli leadership takes responsibility and gives equal opportunity for a productive and normal future, the sooner such will become the norm for both Palestinian Arab and the rest of Israeli population. The biggest problem is the Palestinian Arabs are now forced to live under corrupt and unhealthy governance and are being forced by the world to undergo such negative reality. The Palestinian Arab population should be annexed and granted the same opportunity, education, societal normalcy and employment granting them a positive future free of the PA oppressive governance, then they will emerge in time to accept the normalcy and join in striving for a better future and adopt normalcy. So, what are you waiting for, Netanyahu, somebody to spell out that you have the world’s permission to do the right thing for all involved? That is never going to happen as the world does not want Israel to succeed. The world wants Israel to fail and be destroyed. Israel will not be rewarded for any act and each time Israel gives in and surrenders even an inch, the result will always be demands for a yard or two. Israel cannot give enough to make the world accept her amongst the nations of the world. Israel surrendered the entire Sinai Peninsula and the world turned around and claimed that Israel had not sacrificed for peace. Israel returned all of the area of Lebanon after the attacks by Hezballah and the world demanded the Sheba Farms and the Golan Heights, both areas which were never part of Lebanon. Israel gave the PA Gaza and they lost it to Hamas. Now they demand Israel give Judea, Samaria and half, the old city and Temple Mount included, of Jerusalem to the same PA claiming that Israel has not given them a chance at governing themselves. What about giving them Gaza? The world acts as if Israel gave Gaza to Hamas, not the PA. Does anybody believe that after giving the PA all the lands that constitute the area Jordan occupied illegally will be the end of things? Trust us when we tell you that if we give the PA all the world is demanding for them the next thing will be a demand that the Negev belongs to the Bedouins or that the Galilee belongs to some other Arabs or that Israel should accept eight to ten million Arab refugees and allow them to be instant citizens. The world will continue to demand until Israel is subsumed by its enemies and will not allow the Jews to retain even Tel Aviv. The world wants to have their nationless Jews living at the behest and under the kindness or hostility of others. Truth be told, the world will not be happy until the Jews completely disappear by whatever means they must find. The only means the Jews have of honestly surviving is to annex all of the lands we were promised by the San Remo Conference and a series of other treaties and charters, period. Once we have all of our land we can then work for the betterment of all the people within the borders including the Palestinian Arabs living as legal resident aliens, like many Baha’I, Philippines, Indians and others who have been hired to assist the many elderly to reside on their own despite requiring a legal helper to do shopping and other services. These people are allowed to reside in Israel as legal resident aliens thus legal but not voting residents of Israel. So, Prime Minister Netanyahu, be bold, act now, stop putting off that which most of the population of Israel would advise, if only you would ask. If you refuse to act, then allow a new leader who is willing to act for the future of Israel to lead. We believe you can find it within yourself to act and there is no requirement to ask Donald Trump even though he is the President of the United States. You do not need to wait for him to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, you annex our ancient core of the homelands, all of Jerusalem has been annexed but the world is still attempting to steal away half of our eternal capital including the Temple Mount, the Old City and the Jewish Quarter. The world will never say we can have our land, any of our land. Declare our sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and send Mahmoud Abbas and his merry band of crooks back into exile. Be bold like your military background should have granted you as an ability somewhere in your memory. Reach back and grab your boldness and do what you know is the right thing and annex our land and send that nemesis back into oblivion. Do it now as we have the coverage in Washington D.C. as he signaled during the campaign. We all but guarantee that once you annex that which is ours and guarantee that for the future all of Jerusalem will remain in the hands of Israel, then we will find an American Embassy being constructed in Jerusalem before you know it. Not only will you feel better, you will be elected for the next decade and we will not even begrudge you all the ice cream you can eat.

Destroy Islamic World by Rebuilding Destroyed Synagogue

 

After the Jordanians took control of not only much of Judea and Samaria but also the entirety of the Old City of Jerusalem, they enforced Islamic dominance by destroying the ancient Synagogues throughout Jerusalem and the entirety of their occupied territories, land occupied from rightful Israel. Since Israel liberated these lands resulting from their gains during their defensive war resulting from the Arab threats to drive the Jews into the sea (Mediterranean Sea) in June of 1967, they have been slowly restoring the Synagogues as funds became available. The latest incident of Islamic outrage flourished with the instigating cry that the Jews are building Synagogues to surround the Temple Mount such that their actions using these Synagogues will destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque. The reason this will destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque and not any other structure is because whenever the Imams use the referencing of harm to the al-Aqsa Mosque this is taken as a call to violence and to assault either the Temple Mount with rioting or the referenced activity or structure. More often than not the calls related to the al-Aqsa Mosque brings rioting to the Temple Mount followed soon thereafter with international objections to the increased violence which the Israelis have refused to prevent or return quiet to the holy sites. Should Israel take the one precaution which brings a state of quiet on the Temple Mount by refusing admittance of Muslim men between age 16 and 40 thus resulting in an end to the riots the new hue and cry goes out that the Israelis are blocking Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount. What is never mentioned is that as soon as the Muslim men respond to mentions of threats to the al-Aqsa Mosque by the Imams with rioting, the first response by the Israeli security forces is to ban all Jewish visitations to the Temple Mount despite such a move has only served to increase the frequency of the rioting. Some things just make one speechless over the profound lack of logic.

 

The latest threat to the al-Aqsa Mosque, if we are to believe the authorities from the Islamic Waqf, is the beginning of the restoration and rebuilding of the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City. The Waqf spokespeople are claiming that the Synagogue never existed anywhere in the Old City as all the lands belong to the Islamic Waqf so how could they have ever had Synagogues on them. The small fact that the original Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue was originally built in the 1860s and was destroyed in 1948, as were so many other Jewish historic Synagogues and other holy sites as part of the Islamic cleansing of all traces of Jewish existence within the lands which came under their control, is validating facts on the ground even in its destroyed state as it will continue to be once restored, just much more majestic as such a precious and holy structure should be. Such demolitions continue to this very day in areas under Arab autonomous control such as Joseph’s and Rachel’s tombs which are regularly destroyed and when Jews are permitted to pray at Joseph’s tomb the IDF must provide security and the worshippers brought under cover of darkness usually around two o’clock in the early AM and must depart before dawn at most once a month. Often prayers are only capable of being given once the destructions since the last visit have been repaired, a devotion of love which take precious time away from prayers despite the theory and guarantees by the United Nations and the permanent members of the Security Council that all holy sites would be made available for visits and prayer services, a promise which sounds great but nobody apparently ever planned to enforce.

 

The Arabs took control of Joseph’s tomb fatally wounding Border Police Corporal Madhat Yousuf, a Druze soldier, who bled to death after being abandoned for five hours at Joseph’s tomb by Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, following a Palestinian Authority Arab attack on the site. Barak gave the order to not launch a rescue operation in order to avoid escalating the situation. The hesitance to act may have also been influenced by fear of international reactions had a general assault been launched, which is what it appeared may have been necessary, causing large numbers of additional casualties or it could have been simple temerity which appears to be a malady that can strike even the most heroic and courageous of soldiers with numerous campaigns or the most dangerous and clandestine of missions under their belts. Whatever the reason that no rescue was deployed and why the Arabs simply watched a fellow human being bleed out and die when they could have easily provided first aid and stopped his bleeding but they saw only somebody that was not of them and thus not worthy of any of their efforts to save a fellow human being. There have been a number of people attacked and even died simply because they attempted to pray at a holy site, and those injured praying just north of Bethlehem at Rachel’s Tomb are women who often suffer attacks where bricks are hurled at them simply because they are Jews visiting a site the Arabs wish to claim. Such is a sorry statement of the condition of humanity where such is permitted anywhere and to any peoples.

Between the Synagogues the Jordanians destroyed and the almost uncountable times that Joseph’s Tomb has been desecrated added to the destructions being carried out by the Islamic State and other such acts around the Islamic world, they now claim that all they hold is threatened by the reconstruction and refurbishing of a single 1860s Synagogue as such threatens the Islamic lands, their al-Aqsa Mosque, all the lands considered to be a part of the holy Waqf. Islam believes apparently that if a structure is built for any other religion it belittles their holy places is really a sad commentary because mankind can use as many holy sites and houses of worship as can be built, if only they would take the time to use them and learn the lessons which carried humanity this far. There are those who feel that there should only be a single religion and then the arguing and fighting comes trying to decide which religion. If only all could adopt the view that each religion has its contribution for mankind and the more religious thought there is in our world, the richer and more blessings for all mankind. This has been the same reaction whenever a Synagogue has been reconstructed or new Synagogue constructed yet not a single Mosque has collapsed as a result, so perhaps these warnings of the imminent destruction which might befall the al-Aqsa Mosque resulting from the rebuilding the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue are an excessive reaction to what for many Jews is a blessing and joyous occasion. It is really too bad that this joy will not be shared. The world would be such a greater place if we could all enjoy the joys of others. Perhaps the beautiful architecture of the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue can fill just one Muslim’s eye and through the sight their heart with some degree of joy and they realize that another Synagogue adds to the world in much the same way as another Mosque should also fill the world with more joy and celebration.

 

 

This is the model of the plans for the restoration and rebuild of the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. The Synagogue was originally constructed in the 1860s and was destroyed when the Jordanians dynamited the original Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue along with virtually every other religious or significantly Jewish building in all ot Eastern Jerusalem which includes the entirety of the Old City Jerusalem which includes structures over two thousands of years in age and other built throughout the centuries. These destructions were wanton, senseless, vile acts for which there was no outcry in 1948 as the world turned a blind eye as has proven to be the reaction to virtually every terrorist or destructive act towards Israel and particularly the Jews residing therein.

The Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue modeled above has the ornate touches commensurate with 1860s architecture crowned with a dome to complete the splendor. This Synagogue will blend well with the other structures from different periods throughout the history of Jerusalem. We hope and pray that many will find prayer within its walls and study in its classrooms beneficial and imparting joy to their hearts, wisdom and knowledge in their heads and a fullness of life and lightness of spirit blessing all they do and benefiting those they meet. The wishes are as sincere as they are simple and straightforward. May we add that we hold hope that if the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue manages to have any effect upon the al-Aqsa Mosque that it is one of blessing spirit and enlightenment for all who worship in either house of prayers.
