Israel Must Choose Before Any More Damage is Done

 

Israel is facing the most aggressively damaging and abrasively caustic administration in memory if not actuality. The revelation that if not for then Secretary of State Clinton’s inattention or impracticality of concealing the United States’ manipulative coercions, there would have been a massive and coordinated world-wide effort to disestablish Israel fortunately never happened. The still and continuing e-mail scandal, which many believe and even hope, will sink her second run for the Presidency, revealed a new chapter with Israel as the target. The revelation told of plans in the works for a massive coordinated effort through the wholly owned NGOs either under United States directive or through the European controlled NGOs or both along with overtly coordinated through State Department auspices and contacts a coordinated support around the world designed to inundate the media with calls and charges against Israel to force a peace on Israel through what were termed grand sacrifices and concessions both before and during the negotiations which were to present to Mahmoud Abbas an irresistible Israeli position which would give him everything and possibly anything demanded just to end the humiliations and accusatorial demonstrations within Israel, the Palestinian territories and around the world. The plan was for Arab Palestinians to present an Arab Spring style protest where massive numbers of Arab women would protest at a set location publically accessible for the media to cover and with only women and their young children and no Arab Palestinian men as they would not have the patience and would resort to violence allowing for Israel to then disperse the demonstrators using force of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) or border patrol and police thus ending the demonstrations before they could have their desired effect.

 

The ideas were presented by an e-mail from Thomas Pickering, a former US ambassador to Israel who also served as undersecretary of state for political affairs under former president Bill Clinton and well connected to the Clinton team. In his damning e-mail Pickering wrote “On the Palestinian side the male culture is to use force. Palestinian men will not for long patiently demonstrate — they will be inclined over time and much too soon to be frustrated and use force. Their male culture comes close to requiring it. If the Palestinians see men engaged they will jump in and the soldiers of the IDF will sooner or later use force,” he wrote. “This comes from several former senior Israeli military officers I have spoken with. The soldiers are fearful, nervous, outnumbered, insecure and brought up on a severe distrust of Palestinian males whom almost all of them have never spoken to except at roadblocks.” It was further reported that the use of females could “counteract” fears that the protests could become violent and thus place Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and his standing to rule in Ramallah in danger and result in losing the person so much time and efforts to build his image as a partner for peace despite evidence to the contrary, not all of which has been successfully thwarted. Citing the need for a kick-start in order to return to negotiations, Pickering continued, “They must develop growth and momentum, just like Tahrir Square, and attract more women to participate and thus gain world attention.” he continued expressing regret at finding, “Their leadership has shied away from this idea because they can’t control it; they too are afraid of being replaced by a Tahrir Square style action.”

Pickering continued by painting Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu as the impediment to peace talks and peace itself as he is satisfied with things as they are, deadlocked and further in Pickering’s mind’s warped views and continuing to expand the settlements in Judea and Samaria placing more realities on the ground all despite the Prime Minister acting as a stone wall blocking any and all building in the areas beyond the Green Line ever since the reelection of President Obama. Still, Pickering stated, “Netanyahu is not going to move for anything that the Palestinians can offer him which they can deliver,” he wrote. “He cannot deliver anything the Palestinians can accept without our help. He is much more satisfied with the status quo than with the risks of change. What will change the situation is a major effort to use non-violent protests and demonstrations to put peace back in the center of people’s aspirations as well as their thoughts,” Pickering added, “and use that to influence the political leadership. This is far from a sure thing, but far, in my humble view, from hopeless.” Laura Rosenberger, Secretary of State Clinton’s foreign policy adviser of those times told The Times of Israel late last Tuesday: “To be clear, Hillary Clinton never considered any plan of this sort, period.” This was but one of the numerous demands or plans offered in the most recent three-thousand of the e-mails released to the media.

These revelation come on top of the eviction of Jews from apartments they had legally purchased and possessed all the pertinent and required paperwork but it has been surmised that returning the properties to their former Arab owner became necessary due to intelligence that were the Jews to remain in the building that such would provide sufficient evidence to place the previous Arab owner who sold the apartments in danger of torture and probable death as he had broken the Arab Palestinian law against selling or renting properties to Jews punishable by death after appropriate torture such that others tempted to sell to Jews would be cowed and prevented. This is a disturbing policy, advisory or who knows what, which forces Israeli forces to remove any Jewish presence even if they own the apartments or other accommodations if the previous Arab owner becomes under threat by the Arab Palestinian Authority. Such a policy would provide for a great revenue enhancer as an Arab could sell a property and retain ownership without reimbursing the Jews. This would also serve as an enhanced mode of preventing any further spread of Jewish residence in the contested area beyond the Green Line thus keeping Prime Minister Netanyahu’s and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s silent promise to enforce President Obama’s settlement freeze. This stealth freeze has prevented Jews and only Jews from any construction even to include a small tool shed all the while allowing Arab illegal building of structures and other facts on the ground in Area C using European financing all in an effort to surround Bet El, East Jerusalem and any other Israeli community thus forcing their evacuation should any peace be formed using the Green Line that the Arabs are placing structure along its length.

 

All the stealthy compliance with an Obama directive, Arabs building illegally and expelling Jews from their homes, workplaces and shopping areas all in the name of peace yet these actions and any even punishingly severe which results in Israel and the Jews retaining even just sufficient lands for them to stand upon and not an inch more still would not produce that presumed illusive peace agreement. The reason, contrary to leftist and international busy-bodies’ strong belief of the requirements for peace and their other cases of wrong-think, is not at all to do with Israeli policies or concessions but due to Mahmoud Abbas and his precariously tenuous grip to power and its dependency on the IDF presence. Should Mahmoud Abbas ever agree to a peace with Israel it would leave him high and dry and oh-so-vulnerable to Hamas and other actors who actually have the support of the majority of Arab Palestinians in Judea and Samaria. The IDF commanders who know the realities which will never make it into Western media would tell the story of how their main task is to enforce policies which demand that they do everything required to keep Mahmoud Abbas and his kleptocracy in power and alive. It is for this reason that the Arab Palestinian intelligence gatherers report and share everything, and we mean everything, with their IDF counterparts emphasizing any information which will eat away at the activities of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, Iran and any other threats to Abbas thus using the IDF as the best possible Abbas protector service. Despite Abbas and his merry band of cutthroats being up to their collective necks in incitement, rewarding, incentivizing and supporting, in every conceivable manner, terrorism with intent of murdering and forcing Israel’s hand to defend even to the point of lethal force; the world and even Pope Francis call him a man of peace. Even having their hands forced to use up to the full force of the IDF to save the lives of civilians, any Arab deaths are then grist for the destruction mill which is the Western and world media in concert with leftist defamations calling for the erasure of all of the Jewish State as told in their unifying chant, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” Yet it is better attacks be made one by one rather than have Hamas or worse occupying the ledges of the Judean hills overlooking the heart of Israel that surrounds the north, south and east of Tel Aviv where Hamas and company could launch their rockets beyond the cusp down on seventy percent or more of Israel’s population, businesses, tourist destinations and its main, some might claim only, international airport, Ben Gurion, placing all flights in danger from surface to air missiles. Such a reality would result in Israel being forced to retake all of Judea and Samaria right up to the Jordan River abrogating any presumed peace which drove out any Israeli presence or force to prevent such a takeover.

 

This brings us to the choice Israel must make before things get so upside-down and precarious such as a revolt, a coup in which Hamas or the Islamic State or potentially both take over the Palestinian leadership in Judea and Samaria. Such an event would spell out a death sentence for Abbas, Erekat, Rabbo and the other leaders of Fatah. They would likely be tossed from the top of the highest buildings in all of Judea and Samaria as Hamas cleansed the “weakness” from their midst. Initially the IDF, Border Patrol and other Israeli armed forces would necessarily escape onto the larger communities which would offer sanctuary, a decent and organized supplemental armed force, many with defendable emplacements near the edge of their communities and most important, relative proximity which offers friendlier climes. From the higher ground which is often in or near the center of these communities the IDF could place spotters to act as an early warning system and the initial confrontations could easily be Arab Palestinians also seeking the protection from Hamas, Islamic State or whoever had taken power by force as the new power in Judea and Samaria might decide that more than just the leadership required being deleted (for lack of a better word). This is one of many potential alternative futures which could be realized in the far distant future or could be just beyond the cusp of today arriving with the morning sun tomorrow. Anyway one looks at the possible alternatives to Abbas the more one realized there are worse, but why has there never been any hope for a better future? Again, the reason is Abbas who has refused to hold election though two set dates giving him and the rest of the thieves running the Arab Palestinian Authority a third term without the inconveniences and risks of an election. This is the actual reason that the Arab Palestinians have not voted since 2005 and has nothing to do with Israel as the Authority holds the power over elections as their autonomous leadership and not Israel is responsible in any form or matter.

Israel faces an evil and dubious future for as long as the Arabs are under the Palestinian Authority or any other semiautonomous region as the propaganda continues to find more and more hate-filled minds who would believe any horrendous or heinous act by Israel or the IDF and other enforcement troops or the people (meaning Jews) simply due to the fact they believe Jews to be the most vile and evil sub-humans on the face of the Earth. The latest proof is close to beyond belief but it has been validated in the media where reports tell of seventy-one British physicians have petitioned to have the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) have their membership in the World Medical Association (WMA) revoked as Israeli doctors were carrying out “medical torture” on Palestinian patients. That any physician would contemplate or conceptualize such an accusation against the entire body of physicians of another nation has to be rooted somewhere beyond the cusp of reason. There can be no other explanation that such an accusation could be brought to the fore except as the result of latent, or not so latent, hatred and bias against the group due to their nation and whatever makes their nations separate from the body of nations in these physicians’ beliefs. Israeli physicians and medical staffs along with search and rescue teams and all forms of disaster relief time and again have not only been amongst, if not the first to arrive but also go into the remote places where some have yet to ever see any aid or other government or NGO assistance. These teams are often the first onto the scene after a disaster and are one of the few who have offered to assist the United States after disasters and have provided such relief in Haiti, Philippines and Nepal just to name a few. Then there is the Save a Child’s Heart where operations are performed and subsequent teams trained and hospitals given the equipment necessary to allow such operations to then be performed in a more timely manner. The SACH doctors give up the glamour for the goodness yet these physicians would also be injured by this proposed action by seventy-one British Physicians.

 

These physicians’ anti-Semitism along with the accompanying anti-Israel and anti-Zionism is so blatant that it simply oozes the bile-like slime over anything they touch. Their hatred may stem from many things but this type of hate comes from deep in a defective heart, and malfunctioning mind and a blackened soul. It is exactly this hatred which is also pervasive on the Arab Palestinian and Arab and Muslim worlds beyond which will never be satisfied while Israel exists at any size or location. It is not that these haters are serving the cause of the Palestinian Arabs but rather channeling their hatred for Jews into their political haughtiness and spitefulness choking their hearts that they display by such an act. May Hashem treat them more kindly when they return a blackened soul to His care than they will have acted towards the Jewish State because of its being Jewish. Israel must take control over all the lands from the River to the Sea. If there are a number of Arabs who wish to be under their own rule then an area which includes them be granted semiautonomous governance with elections held as the exact timing as called for in any founding documents and to assure their votes are heard and even permitted to be cast, these elections will be scheduled, held and monitored by Israel and international observers. Fair and open elections can work towards free and open passage for all into Israel proper and for Israelis to enter the semiautonomous zones, especially if it holds religious historical sites and prayers will be permitted by all in all areas of Israel. The semiautonomous zone and governance will still be held responsible for observing any Israeli laws which are a part of the Basic Laws or any Constitution if and when one is written and adopted. The Lands must still be defended from external influences or hostile attack, thus the IDF and Shin Bet will have ample access to the area of the autonomous governance as required. In exchange the Israelis will monitor their governance for any graft or signs of kleptocracy and will investigate such and hold the guilty responsible. The society within Israeli borders must be kept free, open and without any form of radicalized hatreds or violence as the rule of law will be the absolute one can count upon and equality before the law a guarantee.

The New Anti-Semitism Palestinianism

 

Up front let it be understood, yes, we know there are those who honestly support the idea of a Palestinian state sharing borders with Israel as the Jewish State. They have not understood what the Palestinian leadership and the violence they wreak is all about replacing the Jewish State and murdering every last Jew in Israel and then the world. If they were to read the Hamas Charter and realize that it plainly states their intent to murder every Jew in Israel and then continue on to murder every Jew in the world. If they were to trace the concept of Palestinian Arab liberation back through Yasser Arafat and on back to his mentor and teacher, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini and his involvement and/or tutelage during his time in Berlin and amongst the Nazi upper hierarchy during World War II and they would soon come to realize that Palestinianism is not about Arab liberation but solely and completely about eradication of the Jews and is using Arab nationalism as their smoke-screen. The real tragedy is that these youths who pay for the cause of freedom and liberty under their own government and in their own nation could have had that nation a thousand times over if their leadership were interested in a nation of their own more than they are about murdering every Jew in Israel and beyond and only using nationhood as their device to attain their goal.

 

This has brought a new wave of misery known as Abbas, the man who stood beside Arafat from the very beginning as both men sought to finish the dream of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini which many claim he carried with him and urged the Nazis to exterminate rather than deport the Jews to the Middle East which was one idea which had surfaced as a solution to the Jewish situation, the Jewish Problem which was such a concern to the Nazis in their hopes of raising a pure master race of blonde haired blue eyed super humans. One thing that always bothered me about their description of a super human was so different from the actual appearance of the Nazis leadership that should they have begun their dream by each of them shooting themselves in the head. All one need do is look at the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 Partition Plan for Palestine and the actual offer of partition shown on the map below and one immediately realizes that had the Arabs really desired a state they would have accepted giving half of the area to the Jews with the majority of the land for the Jews being in the Negev Desert. When the Arab League refused the partition which left the entirety of the land as the Jewish State which is why the invading Arab armies on May 15, 1948 coming from the east were stretched along the east side of the Jordan River with a concentration of armor at the Allenby Bridge to establish their beachhead on the Israeli side and begin their drive to the sea, or so they hoped as shown on other map below. The Arabs with their idea that they must never surrender as much as a grain of sand from a beach as doing so would reveal them as weak and invite invasion or other calamities refused even an equal share and now we are to believe they would agree to far less, not a chance as they still demand every grain of sand and the death of the Jews so they can never return and take even a grain of sand. It goes far deeper as there is also an ingrained theme in Islam which demands that the Muslims must first kill the Jews for their messiah to come and assist them in conquering the world and subjugating all those who refuse to convert to Islam. These are points which can be researched, debated, denied, and validated till the cows jump over the moon and return home satisfied they lived up to their potential.

The wars fought and the lives lost and destroyed were all over a strip of land which would not make even a fair sized ranch in Texas. When one looks at the Arab and Muslim lands and the size that Israel takes out of it one realizes the seeming insanity of the idea that the Jews are conquering the Arab and Muslim lands and realizes the preposterousness of that idea shown below. That the world’s almost fifteen million Jews in the entire world are a threat to the almost two and a half billion Muslims is another idea which becomes all the more obvious when the numbers are written out one realizes Jews equal almost 15,000,000 against the Muslims numbering almost 2,500,000,000 and the difference is only going to increase unless something unforeseen were to occur. But reality is not what the entire argument is about, it is about the fight started by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini whose rallying cry was that the Jews were coming to hold satanic rituals and desecrate the al-Aqsa Mosque, a rallying cry which is familiar to anybody who pays attention to the actual words of Mahmoud Abbas as he whips up emotions (seen below in a clip from September 16, 2015 with English subtitles provided by MEMRI). The youths hearing the incitement will often take a kitchen knife and attack armed police and IDF soldiers throwing their lives away or, if they are fortunate, arrest and a prison term which will make them eligible for a salary from the Palestinian Authority which is commensurate on the number of Jews their assaults murdered. There have been cases of men assaulting Israeli forces and when appearing in court pleading guilty and demanding a more severe sentence as it will provide for their family better than they possibly could earn within the Palestinian Authority ruled areas.

Another truth about the al-Aqsa Mosque is that there are near countless Mosques carrying that name all over the world. Furthermore, they all cannot have been the Mosque commemorating the location from which Mohammad took his midnight ride into the realms of Heaven and thus be the furthest Mosque as there can be only one true furthest Mosque. What would you say if somebody claimed the al-Aqsa Mosque looks like the Mosque pictured below? What if it was added that this al-Aqsa Mosque is the al-Aqsa Mosque in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States? That would be the truth as that is also a picture of an al-Aqsa Mosque as there are likely other Mosques carrying that name.

There are numerous lies and misdirection about the Arab Israeli conflict as it was originally named before the Arab world decided it would serve their public relations better to formulate a weak Arab group which had been harmed by their losses in their wars to destroy Israel. They gained land but failed to destroy Israel in the initial war to drive the Jews into the sea as described by Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini when describing how the glorious armies of the Arab world were going to destroy Israel and kill or drive the Jews into the Sea in a matter of days after May 15, 1948 when they attacked the morning of Israel’s existence. Almost two years later and armistice lines had been accepted on all fronts with the Arab Armies of Egypt having gained the Gaza Strip from Israel and the armies of Jordan with assistance from Iraq and Saudi Arabian militaries holding parts of Judea and Samaria which Jordan renamed West Bank when they annexed them illegally. That was the true occupation of Judea and Samaria by Jordan and subsequently by the so-called Palestinians. Then there was the even more disastrous Arab showing in 1967 when they lost the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula and the Israelis liberated Judea and Samaria. Then they lost again with the 1973 Yom Kippur War and there has not been another Arab war as they are attempting to gain as much lands as possible through the Palestinian ploy before attacking en-masse again. The entire precept of the Palestinian national movement is to weaken Israel by taking as much land or even destroying Israel through political means and once the Arabs have taken all they can possibly gain politically then the Palestinians will allow for Arab armies to mass on their borders of Israel along with other Arab forces presumably attacking from Egypt, Lebanon and Syria (though Syria is looking a bit troubled right now) making for the most advantageous front they have not seen since 1967 before the Six Day War. Did you know that in Egypt and Syria it had been taught that they won the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War and still Israel exists, remarkable. The truth here in the Middle East is what you can convince the rest of the world to believe and in Europe as well as other places around the globe people are willing to believe anything if it attacks the Jews, or the new Jew, the Jewish State, Israel.

 

This is what the real fight against all things Israel is really about, bring down the Jews. European and Arabian histories are replete with periods of sever anti-Semitism and outright genocidal persecution of the Jews where Jews either fled with whatever possessions they could carry in one or two suitcases. There have been years upon years when Jews lived with suitcases packed with their essentials even to the point that holy items such as prayer shawls, Shabbat candelabras and other religious items including books were only removed when needed and then immediately returned into the suitcases just in case a hasty departure were to become necessary. Often the Jews were set upon in the middle of the night and some would be fortunate to be awakened by the screams of neighbors and make their escape often running for two days before stopping, they were far more fit back then. Then they might need to move quickly just to stay ahead of the spreading pogroms hoping eventually to find safe shelter usually in a distant land where the troubles would be kept at bay by a friendly leader; but just as the Pharaoh’s had not heard of Jacob and his heart hardened towards the Jews, those leaders who protected them were soon to be followed by one whose problems were blamed on the Jews, especially if the problems were economic or disease. The reasoning for each was readily easy to see when reviewing the historical records and make little sense today but that is changing and changing fast. During many periods and in almost every place Jews were forbidden from owning land or even working lands owned by others as land meant wealth and power so the Jews lived in the towns and learned trades or worked as money lenders, the forerunners of banks. So when the economy soured it was obvious, the tradesman and money lenders were cheating charging too much or whatever and who were these cheats, the Jews. Never was it their fellow religionists’ who also worked at trades who cheated them, just the Jews. And when disease struck and spread the Jews were forced to live separate and thus made less contact with diseases outside their community and as the Jews are ordered as part of keeping kosher and keeping traditions they washed and bathed regularly and cleaned their homes weekly for the Sabbath and completely cleaned their homes of all leavened every year for Passover so they were never struck as severely when plagues or flu epidemics struck and thus it was obvious as less Jews died so they must have been responsible for the illness. What to do when it was the Jews who brought illness into the population, you burn Jews at the stake and that would even everything out and just as many Jews would be dead in the end.

This was the cartoon which festooned the Facebook pages and homepage of the Palestinian Authority as well as the Fatah Party homepage, both organizations headed by Mahmoud Abbas who has editorial approval for all posts presumably.

This was also a theme in the last Gaza war when far fewer Jews were struck by the Hamas rockets as the Iron Dome intercepted the vast majority heading for populated areas and the Israelis kept track of the closest shelter or simply followed the crowds to the closest shelter whenever the Code Red Alarms sounded. The IDF set up away from populated areas while Hamas took great care in maximizing the numbers of fellow Arabs killed. Hamas would fire rockets from locations adjacent to shelters, schools and hospitals. They used human shields including grabbing children and using them as bulletproof vests knowing the IDF would not shoot them with a child in the line of fire. Hiding thusly did have limitations as artillery is less specific being an area of effect and not aimed at single targets but at weapons systems and troop massings. When IDF fighter jets were on bombing missions the IDF command would fly drones to give them a visual of the target and the pilot would require authorization immediately before dropping ordinance from headquarters and an assigned lawyer viewing the target to assure it was a legal target free of civilians to the best of his ability. But that did not stop many interviewers for news services from asking why the Jews did not die at the same numbers as the people of Gaza, they wanted to know where the dead Jews were and why there were so few. These were the same news reporters who stayed in Israeli hotels expressly because they had bomb shelters which were easily accessible in case of rocket attack and nobody asked where were the dead reporters, as that would have been ridiculous and ghoulish. There have been reports through friends and a smattering of news and editorials which have mentioned anti-Semitic assaults, slurs and other indignities being made using the Palestinian cause as their basis such as one I read about somewhere this past day from somewhere in Canada where a car full of youths yelled obscenities and threats at some Jews on their way walking to services this past Saturday ending their slurs with chants of live Palestine. There are too many sorrowful reports of Jews being assaulted by pro-Palestinian demonstrators on college and university campuses throughout the Western World largely in Europe, the United States, Australia and Canada. These reports are bad enough but the reports out of the Scandinavian countries, France, Belgium and Greece are purely frightening. This spreading insanity is again returning to a world all too receptive and it is all couched in the fuzzy warm blanket of pro-Palestinianism. Palestinian support is the shroud behind which the new anti-Semitism conceals themselves demanding their righteous anger as it is all Jews and not just Israelis who are persecuting the Palestinians. The sad truth is it is the leaders and the supportive organizers around the world who are the main persecutors of the Palestinian Arabs because it is the refusal to admit their use of these people as the club with which to punish and hopefully eventually destroy the Jews wiping them from the face of the planet and when they are done the Arabs who are now called Palestinians will end up no better off as the world will turn and walk away from them in an instance when they no longer serve their purpose. Proof wound come within six months should some miracle bring an agreement and peace broke out across Israel and Palestine and we really could finally just get to residing side-by-side in peace and security and respect one another and mutually work towards a mutually rewarding relationship, if only such would become true tomorrow morning, or better yet, this morning. Of course the Jew haters cannot allow such as they need their cloak of respectability as they cannot just simply hate the Jews outright as that would reveal their dark souls to the world at large.

Israel Did Not Win the 1948 War

 

If the definition of winning a war is holding your own territory or enlarging your territory, then Israel cannot be said to have won their 1948-9 so-called War of Independence. Israel lost the Gaza Strip to Egypt and most of Judea and all of Samaria to the Jordanians and lost the Golan Heights to Syria. That is what most would agree defines losing the war. The reason Israel is said to have won the war is because the invading Arab armies, all six or seven depending on whose recounting you read, did not manage to drive the Jews into the sea and slaughter every last Jew. So, if one Jew had survived, would that have also been winning the war? Probably not as they might not have lived long enough after only that singular Jew showed up for the victory parade unsure if they were a participant or a spectator. Whichever one they chose would negate the other making the entire dilemma an exercise in futility.

 

This is a very important perception which must be emphasized, the war of 1948-9 was not Israel’s War of Independence, it was the Israeli Defensive War for Survival. This is a particular and important concept. Israel survived the war of 1948-9; we did not win that war. Israel won the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War which were also both defensive wars. The fact that both were defensive wars permits retention of parts or all of the gained lands and guarantees that any lands regained which had been lost in a previous defensive struggle (war) are liberated lands and automatically not only can but must remain under the control of the entity regaining lands lost and the peoples who may have settled in those lands are foreign citizens at best and enemy combatants which may be forced from those lands as they were illegally settled there after the former war. Any of the regained lands which had belonged to the liberating nationals is returned to them and the squatters removed. Such situations get clouded and fuzzy as there are so few precedents as nations very rarely regain lost lands and more often the comparable situation is when lands are given to the defending nation as reward for having been invaded as compensation as the attacking nation rarely has funds which can be considered restitution so lands whose real original ownership is contested or undetermined is made part of the defending national lands and no longer contested under International Law. This was the case for France and Poland when they regained contested areas. It should be noted that any residents of the area which was contested or for other reasons is rewarded to the defender which survived and gained such lands in their defensive struggle may be made to resettle in their original national citizenship, another important concept to be remembered in Israel’s case in defensive wars.

So, since the war brought against Israel in 1948-9 was initiated with the lands awarded Israel, after the Arab entities declined the partition, was defined as the starting borders for Israel of the Sinai-Negev border, the Golan Heights border with Syria, and the Jordan River with Jordan. These lands are Israeli lands and anything less are lands lost in a defensive war and in the case of Israel a defensive war of survival. This must be stressed at all times that the original war which often has the title War of Independence thrust on Israel is in reality the Israel War for Survival. If the 1948-9 war was a war of independence, then Israel would have been warring with the British who were the holding entity of these lands before Israel presumably had to fight for their independence which was not the case. The British held the mandate until such time as the Jewish population was deemed sufficient to form a viable nation on the lands being held and ‘guarded’ by the British under their Mandate from World War I and still after World War II. The borders were as described above, the Golan Heights, the Jordan River, the Sinai-Negev border and the border with Lebanon all as described in the British Mandate at the point of the British guarantors departing and turning these lands over in total to Israel when all her neighbors reinforced with armies from other nations well beyond the Israeli borders such as the troops from Iraq and Yemen amongst other militias and other forces which were not under a national flag. Israel continued to exist after this War of Survival, but be it under truncated lands. This is crucial to be made accurate that the originating borders of Israel were, and these three are the most important, the Sinai-Negev border including Gaza, the Golan Heights which at the highest point being the least generous definition (anything beyond the central line on the Golan Heights would be described as additional lands in order to secure said border from further aggressions). This is important and is an application in this particular case, and the most important, the Jordan River.

 

Since the time of the initial Israeli War for Survival that Israel managed, despite having important and valuable lands stolen from her defined borders had managed to retain these truncated lands with the international powers setting a new border as the Green Line, the position of the front at a set day and time, defined the lands Israel managed through great expense to retain while there exists large areas of Israeli lands now occupied by Egypt in the Gaza, Syria in the Golan Heights, and Jordan from the western side of the Jordan River. These areas described between the Green Line and the original borders upon the departure of the British are occupied lands by Jordanian aggression. They instigated the war upon the nascent state of Israel in total disregard for the legal border of the nation of Israel as defined by the British Mandate. The remaining areas were occupied Israeli lands liberated, not stolen, from Jordan which had been set by an agreement between the Zionist Congress and Britain, not like the Zionists had any manner of arguing at that time. Further proof of these facts come as numerous Jews were forced from their lands in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and the Golan Heights by their occupying powers, These lands should have been immediately returned to their rightful owners when these lands were liberated and returned to within Israel’s borders in the Six Day War of June 1967 and retained in the Yom Kippur War in 1973.

 

That is as simple as it would get under any other circumstance where any other nation other than Israel was the eventual victor in 1967 and survivor in 1948-9 Wars. The first and most important fact is that Israel was attacked in 1948-9 on that initial morning of May 15, 1948 and was fighting against a War of Annihilation, a War of genocidal intent in which had Israel not managed to retain even the smallest sliver of lands in which to squeeze and accept those refugees forced from their original lands by the invading and genocidal nations while settling all of her peoples from the originally larger land mass defined by the British controlled areas upon their departure and their rewarding these lands to the Jewish State of Israel. The borders left by the British at midnight or even dawn of May 15, 1948 are the legal and just defined lands of the original borders for the State of Israel. These are the definition of Israel and any foreign peoples or peoples whose intent is to steal these lands from the Jewish Nation may legally be forced to leave the areas and return to within the border of the previous occupying power which in Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem are any peoples who claim other than Israeli citizenship by legal definition, Any former citizens of Jordan or Transjordan, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, or other Arab land of origin may be required to depart as they were illegally settled on these lands. What could be a more simple and obvious concept?

 

There is one reason and one reason alone that the normal Rules of War and traditional laws regarding land of conquest after a defensive war by the defending power if by some miracle they blunted the attacking forces and then proceeded to drive them from lands that were previously contested or occupied and lands beyond those contested or occupied lands. It boils down to the nations who were the hegemonic powers of the world, all of them including the antagonistic powers of the Soviet Union which backed all Arab and Muslim claims and contested the fact of Israel’s existence, the French and British who had originally under the Mandates set up in the San Remo Conference were holding the lands of the British Mandate for the formation of the Jewish State, and the United States which had proven to make the defining difference in the contest of World War I. The British did at a point very early in their duties as the manager of the Mandate for the Jewish State forsake that role and make a proposition to the Zionist Congress and the Jews residing in the British Mandate for all seventy-eight percent of the Mandate for the Jewish State west of the Jordan River be surrendered by the Zionist Congress for the formation of an Arab State under Hashemite rule in return for which the British Crown would be the guarantor of the remaining twenty-two percent as solely for the formation of the Jewish State. The Zionist Congress at that time having no military of any consequence acquiesced to the British offer realizing the alternative would be the British simply throwing the Jews to the fate of the Arabs and washing their hands of any responsibility and pretending that no such entity known as the British Mandate had ever existed and taken a San Remo Conference, wasn’t that the little ski weekend the major powers held in the Italian Alps somewhere, despite San Remo being along the Italian Riviera with nice beaches and not a ski slope in sight. What real choice did the Zionist Congress have? None might be a good defining place to start and less would be a more refined assessment. So, there we have a definitive definition of a real and defined border emerging from the definition of British Mandate lands for the Jewish State, the Jordan River. Everyone did catch that definition by the British and presumably backed by the British Crown for all time, well, until it was not backed by even a single British citizen if they knew what was good for them and wished to avoid a lifetime admission to the tower of London.

As Israel voluntarily departed from the Gaza during the disengagement, Israel was left facing the prospect of resettling eight to nine thousand refugees who had been displaced. Israel is still resettling the remaining thousand Israeli Jewish refugees. The list of communities of Jews in Gaza dissolved and their occupants resettled numbered twenty-one and were named; Bedolah, Bnei Atzmona, Dugit, Elei Sinai, Gadid, Gan Or, Ganei Tal, Katif, Kfar Darom, Kfar Yam, Kerem Atzmona, Morag, Neve Dekalim, Netzarim, Netzer Hazani, Nisanit, Pe’at Sadeh, Rafiah Yam, Slav, Shirat Hayam, and Tel Katifa. Additionally, there were also four sizeable communities dissolved as part of the allowances for a semi-autonomous areas in Judea and Samaria defined as Area A were Kadim, Ganim, Homesh and Sa-Nur. There were two other areas set aside and given definitions where Area B was under a form of joint security and governance which would be where the border would presumably be drawn during any agreement and an Area C which was completely under Israeli control and was intended to be incorporated back within Israeli borders at the conclusion of any settlement. According to International Law and what has been applied in virtually every instance, even some despite centuries of the usurped lands coming into major population shift towards the occupying nation, the lands were returned to their previous sovereign and all foreign nationals expelled and lands returned to originating family ownership or the State where no heirs were able to be located.

 

 

Judea and Samaria as proposed division between Israel and the invented Arab Palestine promised nation replacing Israel and actual legal under International Law Israeli lands

 

 

We have yet to hear any cogent and reasonable explanation given us beyond blatant anti-Semitisms for the complete disregard for International Law and all precedent for the denials to Israel for reconstituting her original borders and permitting the expulsion of at the least those actively challenging and using terror so as to attempt to force Israel from her returned lands. The World Powers, even those claiming to be the Israelis best friends, are quick to demand that Jews be restricted, forbidden or removed from any lands and some even call for the eradication of Israel as they stand in judgement over Israel while standing with the Arab demands. With such friends enemies become a luxury as they at least act their part. We really do not know how to make this any simpler; all of the lands west of the Jordan River up to and including the Golan Heights and Mount Hermon and the areas west of the center of the Sea of Galilee are rightfully Israeli lands by means of all International law. The facts that Jordan occupied the lands previously and then pretended to give them after they no longer possessed the lands thus attempting to give away formerly occupied lands which had been rightfully restored to their rightful owners and the world backs the occupier’s claim to be leaving lands they no longer occupy and never truly owned to a third and previously never before heard of peoples is the ultimate act of indecency by all supporting such insanity and thievery. Can we for the fifteen minutes it would take to set things right just sign over the formerly occupied lands back to the rightful and legal owner, Israel? Such honesty in dealing with the Jewish Nation would be appreciated as we are tired of fighting even our friends on this issue. To be completely honest, this insane tearing-up of International Law and couching to accept claims that all of Israel actually never belonged to any Jews and has always belonged to some Arabs who adopted a name which at best referred to a tribe of Greek Mediterranean seafaring tradesmen.

 

Let us close with one of the honest assessments of the origins and reasons for the invention of a special subtribe of Arabs which had never existed in all of history and were invented in order to replace Israel and end Jewish rights in what they believe is conquered and permanent Arab Muslim lands. The quote is from PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, in a 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw; where he gave this honest assessment of the faux-people the Palestinians were.

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

 

What can one add to such honesty, the one-time honest appraisal of why the requirement to invent an entire population out of nothing, absolutely nothing. For good measure we can add the plot by none other than Yasser Arafat, and Egyptian born and raised in Cairo and Alexandria and whose ties to the lands of Israel were cousins whose parents left Egypt and came where there were jobs and a future. Yasser Arafat came to make himself rich beyond his wildest dreams on the backs of the very people he claimed to lead knowing he was a Soviet Puppet on stage with somebody else pulling his strings. Yet on the same day Yasser Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993 with Israeli Prime Minister Rabin in the presence of President William Jefferson Clinton, Arafat explained his actions on Jordan TV. This is what he said,

 

“Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.”
