Rebroadcast of Abbas is Declaration of War

 

Below is the Palestinian Media Watch noting of the rebroadcast of Mahmoud Abbas’s call to arms, which began the rioting on the Temple Mount from a number of years ago. Today, like then, it came after Arab Terrorists attacked to murder innocents on or around the Temple Mount. This time the rebroadcast came after the assassination of two police officers and the wounding seriously of a third after which Israel closed the Temple Mount for almost one and a half days, reopening it on Sunday evening. Before Abbas, we include the initial attack itself as caught on Temple Mount entrance monitors with commentary and identification of terrorist and the two officers who were murdered. There was a third police officer wounded in the upper torso and extremities before the three terrorists, the two seen in video plus a third terrorist, and all three were quite well armed. We will include some of the pictures taken of their weapons used in this assault, and it was a military style assault with military styled weaponry.

The actions taken by the Fatah Party, simply another executive branch of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), which is a universally recognized terrorist group from which the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) was formed in order to use political maneuvers and media in the war to eliminate Israel, once again dipped into the media and rebroadcast the Abbas incitement video. This attack was actually an enforcement by terrorism of the UNESCO denoting the entirety of the Temple Mount to be a Palestinian Heritage Site discounting two thousand years of Christian history and four thousand years of Israelite and Jewish history. This attack also came on the heels of another UNESCO ruling naming the Cave of the Patriarchs in the exact same cave as the cave and field bought by Abraham as told in Genesis 23 with the particular necessary conversations included here.

 

And Sarah died in Kiriath Arba, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to eulogize Sarah and to bewail her.
And Abraham arose from before his dead, and he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying,
“I am a stranger and an inhabitant with you. Give me burial property with you, so that I may bury my dead from before me.”
And the sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,
“Listen to us, my lord; you are a prince of God in our midst; in the choicest of our graves bury your dead. None of us will withhold his grave from you to bury your dead.”
And Abraham arose and prostrated himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth.
And he spoke with them, saying, “If it is your will that I bury my dead from before me, listen to me and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar.
That he may give me the Machpelah Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property.”
Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth, and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth, of all those who had come into the gate of his city, saying,
“No, my lord, listen to me. I have given you the field, and the cave that is in it, I have given it to you. Before the eyes of the sons of my people, I have given it to you; bury your dead.”
And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land.
And he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, “But, if only you would listen to me. I am giving the money for the field; take {the money} from me, and I will bury my dead there.”
And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him,
“My lord, listen to me; a {plot of} land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is it between me and you? Bury your dead”
{This was estimated to be at least double the required going price for this land even had it been prime land instead of a cave which cannot be used for planting and a field still not yet cleared with rocks strewn and trees still standing}
And Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, accepted by the merchant.
{Abraham paid the first price mentioned without barter and in silver, not local coinage such as to differentiate this particular burial site from the local people’s burial site such that no person could claim he was a Canaanite.}
And so the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, facing Mamre, was established {in Abraham’s name as a possession}. The field and the cave that was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, which were within its entire border around.
{All the land and cave were} to Abraham as a possession before the eyes of the sons of Heth, in the presence of all who had come within the gate of his city.
And afterwards, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan.
And the field and the cave within it were established to Abraham as burial property, [purchased] from the sons of Heth.

 

The depth of the telling of this negotiation was deliberate and done so as to establish that Sarah’s burial plot and what was to become Abraham’s family burial plot was and would forever remain property of his family and the tribe of people he was destined to establish and not just another Canaan burial place. It was also done in order to show that Abraham paid a fair, actually more than fair, price for the lands and did so in the sight of many witnesses who were named such that one could ask and receive verification of this sale. This is part of the reason that the UNESCO decision has been such an insult to Jews as well as Christians and would be tantamount to rewarding the British with ownership of Valley Forge as their Heritage Site or declaring the Gettysburg Battle Fields and Cemeteries as solely a Confederate Heritage Site, even more so if there were still those holding that they be permitted to establish a Confederate States of America and were using terrorism to force the United States out of Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and, for good measure, Florida as well as the Gettysburg Memorial Battle Site (see map below). This is pretty much what is claimed by the Palestinians with the exception that there were no Palestinian Arabs anywhere in history before 1964 when Yasser Arafat with assistance of the KGB, the Soviet Union and soon thereafter much of Europe worked in conjunction to invent them with the founding of the PLO. Imagine the scenario of the map below except there had only been the Battle of Gettysburg and otherwise no Confederacy until they formed an organization, a terror group to demand these lands from the United States because they said it belonged to them as Confederate citizens.

The real problem now will be if there is any further incitement, it will be followed by weeks of violence all of which the PA will be blaming Israel for causing the violence because Israeli police killed three poor Palestinian Arabs on the Temple Mount after they had done nothing on the Temple Mount other than run when the police chased them with their weapons drawn. That actually would technically be accurate as the murders took place just off the Temple Mount and the Israeli police were murdered outside the Temple Mount at the entranceway and the third wounded just beyond that and then the terrorists ran back to the Temple Mount attempting to make it likely to the al-Aqsa Mosque where they would have joined the others inside and been protected and concealed from the officers and have gotten away until they were identified. The problem many of these young terrorists have is bragging rights and the use quite vociferously thereof that with any amount of detective work the perpetrating terrorists are found out and arrested, or killed in a violent gun fight where they and their protectors will attempt to take as many with them as possible even to include fellow Arabs such that it can be claimed that the Israelis murdered people who had nothing to do with the terror strike near the Temple Mount. Imagine a trio of criminals murder two policemen and wound a third having lunch inside a Waffle House and then run outside heading for a clubhouse one block away and after they shoot at other officers responding to the injured officer’s call for help they are killed. Then somebody starts shouting as a crowd gathers that these victims of police brutality were gunned down for nothing more sinister than running to get to their club house and the police swarmed upon them with their weapons drawn and that was why they pulled their weapons, simply in an attempt to protect themselves.

 

Now there is a community member who is respected and has an office as a liaison at City Hall and he had made an impassioned speech about an instance where the area citizens had swarmed into the streets blocking traffic and refusing to permit anybody not from their area to pass and claimed they were taking over this area and this resulted into three weeks of violent rioting and somebody played this speech repeatedly and posted it to the community Facebook page. What would you think the probability would be of renewed riots in this area that was already known to be violence prone? That is what has been put in place in Jerusalem at the Temple Mount and the areas east of the Temple Mount at present. That is what the rebroadcast and posting of the Abbas speech from 2014 is tantamount to doing and when the rioting starts, round up the usual culprits from Europe, Peace Now, B’Tselem, Partners for Progressive Israel, Rabbis for Human Rights and the rest of the myriads of largely European financed anti-Israel NGOs registered in Israel as human rights supporters and enforcers. What is unique about all of these people is they have had absolutely little if any mention of Daesh (Islamic State) or Bashir al-Assad in Syria or Boko Haran in Nigeria and surrounding countries, the violence from the Sudan against South Sudan, Turkey’s war against the Syrian and Iraqi Kurdish people or any of the near countless other atrocities. They only come out to enforce purported human rights for terrorists and anybody desiring the destruction of Israel. That is what the showing of the rebroadcast of Abbas is intended to produce. Oh, and as far as incitement by Palestinian leadership, well who best to comment than Mahmoud Abbas himself below in a series of videos filled with incitement.

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few items which require stating to give the full meaning of the above videos to define and crystalize the words by Mahmoud Abbas. He refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish State but demands that his state be absolutely Judenrein, wiped clean of every Jew and no Jew even permitted to enter for any reason. This would deny the Jewish People of the right to visit numerous Holy Sites such as the Cave of the Patriarchs, Jacob’s Tomb, Rachel’s Tomb, all of Biblical Hevron, Jericho, Biblical Shechem (Nablus) and numerous other Biblical locations. Further, he demands that all five to eight million, the number keeps fluctuating, Arab refugees into Israel flooding Israel with a huge number of Arabs raised on Jew hatred who would outnumber the Jews in Israel. How exactly can Israel allow such a presence that would deny them the right to remain and likely immediately rise up to murder every Jews from within Israel. The reality is that he does not desire a state for “his” people but to destroy Israel and any hope for a Jewish State. Denial of the right for the Jew to have their state in Israel is anti-Semitism despite all claims to the contrary. Denying that the Jewish People be permitted their own lands would be identical to denying the Chinese to a right to their own nation demanding it be given to its former Japanese conquerors or the Greek not be permitted their own lands as they were conquered by Rome and the Persians thus it should be divided between these nations, Italy and Iran. Denying the Jewish People to reestablish themselves in their ancient homelands and only the Jews being denied such is anti-Semitism. We would like to note another people who have liberated their ancient lands, though not quite as ancient as Israel, and that is the Kurds who have liberated the northern area of Iraq and the neighboring Kurdish region in northeastern and northern Syria. Allowing them independence would be the correct and proper thing for the United Nations and the nations of the world to recognize, which is why it will probably never happen. We here at BTC support the establishment of a Kurdistan as it was promised the Kurdish People by the British until oil was discovered near Mosul and then the deal was broken and the land given to one branch of King Feisal’s family while the other side was granted to his other son called today Jordan. Jordan was initially to be the Arab half of the British Mandate and covered 78% of the Mandate, which is why Abbas is always demanding his owed 22%, as he really believes that only the Arabs are permitted to reside on any of the lands in the entirety of the Middle East and much of Northern Africa. Abbas’s view of the world, carried out to its final reckoning, would have a world that existed of Arab Muslims and then only his clan and those of a few close allies, if they were fortunate and did not ask for much. Finally, Abbas uses the Muslim idea of Taqiyya which the figure below defines nicely. It is required of Muslims by their religion as defined in the Quran to use deceit and deception in order to further Islam and that any fabrication or lie told to an infidel, a non-Muslim, is not a lie because the truth is only Muslims are permitted to demand truth and infidels live in the world of lies because if there were a world full of only truths, it would have only Islam.

He does not believe in Islam beyond the means it provides him for political and financial gain. The Palestinian people receive over half of all funding for presumed victimized people and refugees and yet are amongst the poorest of all refugees. Yasser Arafat’s wife continues to reside in a wealthy condominium area of Paris and vacations regularly in the Riviera and lives a lavish lifestyle. The two retiring leaders of Hamas have individual wealth of many billions of dollars each. Mahmoud Abbas and his three sons are each extremely wealthy having profited from nearly every construction contract and other contracts given to the numerous firms they control. Some of these firms are paid handsomely to provide services, which are no more demanding than appearing at state functions and eating well. Mahmoud Abbas has planned on building himself a residential complex, perhaps palace would be more fitting a term. The expansive building will feature helipads, meeting rooms, an auditorium, a large and well-appointed residence and barracks for a small company of troops who will secure the residence from any disturbance. The estimated cost of this complex (picture below) is around thirteen million dollars; we believe that is a very low estimate. Finally, is Abbas such a loved leader that he requires a small company, Force 17, to guard his residence from intruders? Apparently, that is a necessity.

Terror Attack Grants Israel Prime Opportunity

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

 

 
 

 
 

 

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

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

 

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

What if the United States Does Not Respond?

 

The threats abound all around the globe. Let’s start here with Saudi Arabia and Egypt, along with more minor states such as the UAE, Bahrain and, in a pinch, Jordan are in serious dispute with Oman, thus with Iran and Turkey plus potentially Russia. Syria is a whirlpool of conflicts with more sides than one can reasonably figure with Bashir al-Assad as the so-called President of Syria being protected by Iran, who is also fighting a proxy war in Yemen in order to surround Saudi Arabia, and Hezballah with assistance of air power from Russia and funds from Qatar as one power; the Islamic State as a diminished but still dangerous threat; al-Nusra allied with other al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood terror fighters aim to defeat and replace al-Assad and rule Syria; the Kurds who are allied throughout Iraq as well as Syria and only wish to make a new nation of Kurdistan and wish to be left alone and have received aid from the United States in secret; Turkey who claim to be fighting the Islamic State but are actually fighting the Kurds as Erdogan has an ethnic hatred for the Kurds who are the new Armenians in the politic of Turkey who would ally with Iran if a general war were to break out in the Middle East. This defined the current mess in the Middle East (diagrammed below) without Israel who could easily be considered an enemy of every groups mentioned above with the possible exception of Russia who would remain neutral or aid the Arabs quietly.

There is another area of conflict much overlooked by the world and the media apparently refuses to comment except if an exceptional distress and disaster strikes the region, and that is a swath across Africa, which has been named the African Transition Zone. This area (pictured below) stretches from the Atlantic Ocean through Mali, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, the two Sudans (Sudan and South Sudan), Ethiopia, and Somalia to the Indian Ocean. The zone strikes across Africa just south of the Sahara Desert reaching into the heart of the continent and delineates the borders between the Islamic world and the worlds of Christian and Animist Africa and all the rest of the non-Islamic peoples. This is a war of terrorism and slaughters trying to drive the non-Muslims from their homes and take the territories after which the war will continue southward until the entirety of the continent has been washed clean and made wholly the realm of Islam. The violence and murdering will not cease until one side has vanquished the other or Islam turns within itself and discovers a means by which it purges the Quran of verses such as those we posted yesterday and instead follow the verses of the Quran written in Mecca where coexistence and the goodness of humankind was the theme rather than the violence of the verses written in Medina which we explained in very simple means and little depth here. This is “a war between civilizations,” “between the civilization based on the Bible and between the civilization based on the Koran exactly as described by Professor Moshe Sharon. He was close as that is the main war as far as the Western World is concerned, but the reality is it is a war of one civilization, Islam, as they have declared war on the entire world, it is simply that the world is refusing to believe the truth, the fact of what they all face and they have a choice, face it together and prevail or fight it separately and they will each fall one nation at a time, one culture at a time and one civilization at a time until there is only one civilization; Islam. That is the reality which need be learned.

There is a war starting across Europe and reaching to the United States. As far as Western World and its culture are concerned, this war began with Israel, though the Western World is doing everything to deny this fact. Europe used to distrust everything Israelis said and ignored when the Israelis warned that there would come a time when Europe would face the same threat and it was really sad that it would take this for Europe to understand what Israel faced. The Israelis were wrong. The Europeans, particularly Western Europe, or Old Europe, are facing the initial stages of terrorism and the terror war (map below denotes terror attacks since 9/11) and they still doubt Israel claiming that Israel is insincere about peace and this is the cause of the problem. The Europeans are blinded by their continued anti-Semitism, which has begun to spread itself into everyday European life, and many Jews are beginning to realize that they have no home in Europe and that it is time to return to their true home, Israel. Yes, a fair number are choosing the United States and will find that home too will become less than comfortable over time. As terror increases, the rest of the peoples will initially blame the Jews making the claim that the entire conflict began because the Jews would not return the lands they purportedly stole from the Palestinian Arabs. This ignores the millennium and a half war which began as the Arab Muslims spread from the Arabian Peninsula to conquer the Middle East followed by Northern Africa (MENA) and have made three attempts before the present one to conquer Europe and are still attempting to conquer India, another conflict which could turn nuclear between India and Pakistan, so note this as another point of potential open and serious warfare. The Islamic warfare in Europe will continue politically and physically through terrorism and the courts with their claims of Islamophobia and hate crimes as their means of enforcing Sharia, the subjugations of the European societies. Additionally, there is also a Province, Xinjiang Province that has approximately fifty-percent Muslim of which virtually all are of the Uyghur ethnicity, which has its origins in Turkey.

The final nation causing turmoil in the world is North Korea whose leader, Kim Jong-un, has continued testing and developing missiles and nuclear weaponry. The North Koreans have been working coordinating with the Iranians with each nation testing weapons technology for the other when it suits skirting sanctions. This has led to suspicions that Iran has tested some missile technologies in the past for North Korea while North Korea has likely tested nuclear weapons for Iran. Of course, each nation, Iran and North Korea, have conducted their most sensitive technologies themselves. The one item on each of these belligerent nations to-do list is the conquest of the world, or at least large swaths of area and both have an overriding hatred for the United States. This hatred could drive them to attack other nations so as to force the United States to act. In the case of Iran it might be a nuclear weapons attack on Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel or make an assault upon a smaller target such as Bahrain, UAE, or Oman which would cause Saudi Arabia to defend any of these nations as they are all members of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) which is an economic and mutual defense pact. North Korea has often made direct threats to destroy South Korea, Japan and/or the Philippines. These three have direct defense pacts with the United States. North Korea, when they say destroy, they mean they would use either overwhelming conventional weapons or nuclear weapons alone or in combination with conventional weapons in order to annihilate the entirety of the lands leaving the ruins relatively to completely uninhabitable. They do not mean conquest in the normal sense, they honestly mean to completely eradicate the cities and thus strip the remains of any and all wealth, which remains to continue the rule of the Kim family.

 

Should the violence erupt to the point that the world sits up and takes attention and every eye turns to Washington D.C. to watch for the coming action of the United States, one must wonder how the world would react if the Congress demanded that the President sit this war out or face impeachment and the President decided not to test the Congress and ordered the Pentagon to stand down. This is the big question, what if when World War III breaks out with everybody pointing their weapons at everybody else and only a select few nations are spared threats, direct or otherwise, and the United States is not under threat or targeted directly. This was the case at the beginning of World War I where the Austria-Hungarian Empire, Germany and the Ottoman Empire went to war against the Empire of France, British Empire, Russian Empire and Japan, yes, Japan. That pretty much was the entire world outside of parts of the Americas and much of Asia outside of the areas under control of Japan. The United States sat back watching as the continent of Europe drew lines in trenches across the Eastern and Western fronts and fought across the lands included in MENA controlled by the Ottoman Empire against the French and British colonial holdings. Even Arab tribes broke from their Ottoman Turkish overlords to fight with the British, as did the Jews of the British territories in the Middle East, all for promises from the British and the French. They were double-crossed as the British and French had already made arrangements reaching an understanding known as the Sykes-Picot Treaty, which divided up the entirety of the MENA lands, as well as redrawing the lands that were the Austria-Hungarian Empire. Also reached was the San Remo Agreement, which formalized the Balfour Declaration.

 

World War I, the Great War, began on July 28, 1914, and it was not until after the sinking of the Lusitania on May 7, 1915, that the United States first considered entering the war as they finally declare war on Germany on April 6, 1917, and later on the Austria-Hungarian Empire on December 7, 1917. World War I ended on November 11, 1918. The United States entered World War one three years after it began and the war ended a little over a year and a half later and only about a year after they declared war against all the entities engaged in the war. World War II was not all that different as it began on September 1, 1939, and ended on September 2, 1945, while the United States only entered the war after Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The odds were a little better this time around, as the United States entered the war two year and two months after the start and the war concluded just under four years later. One can only wonder whether the United States would have ever entered World War II at all or how much longer had it taken had they not been attacked, another year, two, three, when the Nazis and Japanese closed in on the Americas? That is the question, when would the United States enter the next World War? Even the wars with the Barbary Pirates was only entered by the United States after their shipping had been under attack and the price paid for protection was raised too high that war was the more affordable option. That was the first time the United States warred with Islam. There were two Barbary Wars. The third war the United States had with Islam was in 1911 in the Philippines fighting the Morro Tribes as a result of the Spanish American War; their descendants are the ones fighting the Philippine government today on Mindanao.

 

So, what does the world do if the United States decides not to react to an attack on one of their allies? The one thing we can believe is that should the Americans sit any such attack out that every enemy of the United States will feel free to attack whomever they please and the world will erupt into complete and total chaos with nobody looking over their shoulder for the United States to act. They will have shown a total lack of concern and that will be taken as a go signal by every aggressor worldwide. Eventually the Americans will enter, but how many will have died before that happens. These are unpleasant considerations which must be addressed by a world on the edge, a world threatening to fall beyond the cusp.
