When Hatreds Blind the World

 

The interesting thing about Mahmoud Abbas’s string of lies was that the media referred to it as a monumental speech which set straight the record and framed the problems which are still perplexing the Palestinian and Israeli sides and defined what is needed from Israel in cooperation instead of contention and hindrance to solve this problem once and for all. Let us start with the first lie and leave it there as if one wishes to suffer their minds, they can read it here, as he began with claiming Israel was defiling the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. Let us show you a series of pictures of how the Arab Palestinians are utilizing the al-Aqsa Mosque and you decide who the defiler is. Personally, we believe if one uses a religious building to store rocks, two-by-fours and other instruments for rioting and assaulting people they are defiling the place of worship, not the people targeted by these thugs.

But desecration of their own al-Aqsa Mosque is far from the only desecrations attributable to the Palestinians. They also love to destroy the Jewish holy sites within their territories especially Joseph’s Tomb, Kever Yoseph, in Hevron. These pictures below are from several times when the tomb was set afire and the last is a montage of Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb after they spent hours reconstructing the holy site. It was set lite the very next night as a holy Jewish site was considered an anathema which must be rectified and cleansed with fire, thus the constant burning of Joseph’s Tomb by Arab Palestinians.

When the Jordanians gained control over Judea, Samaria and the eastern parts of Jerusalem, they destroyed and desecrated Jewish graves and holy sites as well as cemeteries using the grave markers for building latrines and as paving stones expressly so they would be walked on thus disgracing them daily. Every Synagogue was either destroyed or defaced before being used in some manner which heaped disgrace and defilement upon the building. Now the world wishes for Israel to return these very same holy sites, buildings and cemeteries over to Palestinian rule which will immediately destroy, deface and defile these wonderfully restored places anew. One of the main truths ignored by the world is that only under Israeli rule has Jerusalem been open to all religions for prayer and all religious building been respected and allowed to be restored or repaired including not solely Jewish holy sites but also Christian, Islamic and if we include all of the lands under Israeli control we can include Baha’I which have holy sites within Israel while their religion is denied freedoms in Iran where the religion originated. Israel has never claimed to own the Christian sites on the Temple Mount or in Bethlehem or elsewhere in Israel as Arab Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has done concerning the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the video below.

 

 

Let us get back to Abbas’s speech. He asks rhetorically “Does Israel want one state?”

 

We will give it as disrespectful, but more honest, an answer than was the question. Yes, Israel wants one state and we understand you desire the Jews to have no state whatsoever and for Israel to be erased and Palestine put in its place on the graves of the over six million Jews and the Christians, Baha’I, Buddhists, Hindus and followers of any religion other than Islam. We refuse to allow our throats to be cut by you or anyone else as we have returned to our nation and reestablished our state and see your claims as hollow as your homeland is in the Arabia Peninsula. That is your homeland and the world is aware of this but is willing to sacrifice Israel for an additional five minutes of peace while you and the Islamic world celebrates the victory. After that the world will receive your next demand, probably for the return of Andalusia and all of a sudden Madrid will become the third holiest city in all Islam as you will have Jerusalem and will ignore it and likely return to using the Dome of the Rock as a dumping site as the pretentions will no longer need to be kept up. Fortunately we are not about to roll over and die just for your amusement and we will prevail which will possibly save the world by granting them sufficient time to come to their senses.

 

Abbas was full of question and the next was, “So, who then is perpetrating ethnic cleansing?”

 

Well, that one is a nice softball slow pitch like the kind given the favorite son running for reelection in the United States. The ethnic cleansing is being done by your fellow Muslims and you would be doing so as well should you manage to gain the assistance of the rest of the world in disarming the Jews in Israel. Let us look at the news around the world. The Yazidis were being annihilated with their women being raped until they became unresponsive which killed the fun if they did not fight so the real men could punch and force their submission, then they were shot or killed through torture or by some other means which might further amuse the ISIS troops. There have been the rapes in Germany, Britain, France and elsewhere which took in the refugees and other Muslims who were refused by Saudi Arabia and almost every other Islamic nation, perhaps they knew something the West will need to learn the hard way. The West is learning though the leftist leadership refuses to admit to there being any problem. But talking about ethnic cleansing, how about the cleansing of the Jews throughout the Islamic empire across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) or the Christians of Bethlehem or Lebanon or the Kurds who, fortunately for them, fought back quite successfully or the cleansing by Sunni of Shiite or Shiites of Sunnis? When it comes to ethnic cleansing the Muslims are equal opportunity killers.

 

Reading or listening to what Abbas said, implied, intimated or simply left as presumably understood one will realize that he is demanding that Palestine be built on the graves of all Israel. He claims Beersheba, the entire Negev, the Galilee, Jerusalem, Hevron, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Akko and all of Israel which the Jews occupied from 1948, or simply since the founding of Israel it was all occupied lands. He also claimed that all International Law supports the founding of Palestine on all of its historic lands. He is mixing apples and oranges as he claims the entirety of the British Mandate for Palestine should be Palestine. One need wonder if Jordan is aware of this which we bet after the attempted coup to overthrow the King and Parliament of Jordan during the black September attacks that they know the Palestinians are likely to go after them after Israel. So, Israel is saving Jordan as well. How absolutely magnanimous! Israel is just so kind to care for their neighbor.

 

The influx of Muslim refugees to the West is apparently exporting numerous Islamists who are already attacking using terrorist tactics. There are also the rape squads which Angela Merkel attempted to play down when they used the New Year’s celebrations as their own personal hunting fields molesting women at choke points such as subway, train and other public transportation stations where they could easily trap women on their way to celebrations. Initially the police refused to report on the problem and in many cases attempted to talk the women out of filing reports. The media played along ignoring the problem until it became obvious that there had been mass numbers of attacks. Paris has felt the Islamic rage numerous times since the beginning of the importing of refugees from across MENA. Recently there have been numerous attacks by Muslims across the United States though the authorities do everything in their power to cover up the links the perpetrators have with Islam. These attacks are saddening to anyone who believes that Western society had brought into the world civility and progress to a better life and established a moral society despite the apparent abuses of the freedoms by some at the margins. Rights were enjoyed by people from disparate backgrounds and all religions were protected and granted free exercise. Even people choosing no religion were protected and permitted their belief in something other than one of the traditional religions allowing for agnostics and atheists. Sure these freedoms also permitted some relations which were discouraged or forbidden by most religions but these people were granted the identical freedoms to live as they chose without fear of persecution.

 

There was progress made on numerous human fronts where a more humane world was the result. Slavery was abolished. Women were recognized as equals to men in virtually all manner and professions. Sexual orientation is no longer a taboo which could have a person ostracized from society because of not being part of the majority. Minorities became protected under the law and all were granted the right to vote, run for office, own property, work in any civilian profession, live wherever they pleased, given equal access to loans, equal consideration for credit and an almost endless list of rights and freedoms. These freedoms are now being used to subvert those very freedoms and replace the liberal and open societies with Sharia where a woman is restricted to half that of a man; a woman must belong to a man in some manner be it wife, daughter, sister or concubine; women must wear concealing clothing which depersonalizes them; religion is restricted to only Islam; and democracy is an anathema. The Western world is inviting into their house a disruption which will awaken them from their slumber; and if the world is to have any hope of remaining free and survive, we must hope that once more the immortal words attributed to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto when he learned that Pearl Harbor was bombed hours before the Declaration of war was presented in Washington D.C. come true in our day, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” Wake up America, the world needs you now. We will know soon if the United States can be awakened in time, or late as even late they can pull the world out of this predicament it doesn’t even realize has stricken them. Leaving this job to just Israel might be asking a bit much, we have held on this long, can we get a little credit here?

The Israeli Political Class is the Problem

 

There is a malaise in Israel. The pale it casts darkens all horizons. There are those who claim they are Zionists; And those who claim they are Nationalist; And there are those hiding behind a title of Zionism and Union with the world. Let’s face it, if you are truly a Zionist, truly a Nationalist then you would hold to the dream, the dream of the great Zionist Nationalists who went before. The ones whose names precede the State of Israel; the ones whose names echo in the minds of those who have the flame within; the giants whose tombs we approached with reverential honor and a small amount of trepidation because we know those graves will ask us what we have done. What can we tell these giants who handed us a State, a Jewish and Zionist State which spread from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. They understand the land lost in the great first war where we were unable to regain Gaza and all of Judea and Samaria and even a small part of Benyamin but worst of all we lost half of Yerushalayim including the entirety of the Old City, the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Moriah, as well as Kever Yoseph, Kever Rachael and the Cave of Machpelah. We lost Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal which were the Mounts of blessings and curses respectively and the curses far outnumbered the blessings, a warning we should always heed. As it was written:

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 11:29:7
וְהָיָה, כִּי יְבִיאֲךָ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-אַתָּה בָא-שָׁמָּה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ–וְנָתַתָּה אֶת-הַבְּרָכָה עַל-הַר גְּרִזִים, וְאֶת-הַקְּלָלָה עַל-הַר עֵיבָל.
And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt set the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.

Jericho, Bethlehem, Shechem (Nablus), Hevron, and all the lands, towns, cities which existed under Jordanian occupation from 1948-9 until liberated in June of 1967 in the Six Day War are returned to Eretz Yisroel and must be incorporated into the land in order that we may settle the lands of Eretz Yisroel. As the Jordanians had granted to those who desired citizenship, citizenship which it claimed to cancel after their losing the lands, proving these Arabs, who were no different than Jordanian Arabs, had no value to their brothers unless they were displacing, what even Jordanians would call, the accursed Jews, we can just feel the warmth. Those who were granted Jordanian citizenship should have immediately been given a simple choice; remain in Israel as alien Jordanian residents of Israel; request and work through an acclimation and absorption series of classes in Hebrew, Old Testament and Jewish traditions and practices; or take a generous offer for their lands and structures such as homes and businesses and cross the Allenby Bridge all the wealthier and then proceeded anywhere in the world but Israel. This would have settled the problems with the liberation of the remainders of Judea, Benyamin and Samaria and incorporated all of the lands within their natural borders of Israel. As far as the Waqf and the Temple Mount, they could have been granted jurisdiction over actual recognized Islamic structures while the different Christian sects would work out between themselves who was responsible and was the official caretaker of what parts of which Christian holy site, and the State of Israel would guard, clear, clean and allow universal prayer rights to all across the entirety of the Temple Mount not within a structure and thus under some governance.

 

No areas of now fully liberated and free Israel other than specific holy sites would be held and governed by some foreign entity, especially a terrorist group which is exactly that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is, just prettied up by renaming the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) to Fatah and then allow an election to place them in charge of something called the Palestinian Authority (PA) and claim they are now a partner for peace. It is all a scheming lie thought out by the powers other than Israel in the rest of the world such as the United Nations, European Union and its predecessor the European Common Market, the United Nations, Soviet Union, United States, Britain, France, Germany and some individual people with more money than brains all decided that they were slowly but inexorably going to destroy Israel replacing it with an Arab State, not the Arab State but an Arab state as it would be the twenty-third Arab State because twenty-two are not sufficient so the one and only Jewish State must be erased from the earth and replaced with the twenty-third, or if Hamas makes one and Fatah makes one they would be the twenty-third and twenty-fourth Arab States. But that would not be fair to Islamic Jihad so perhaps they could have a twenty-fifth Arab State. And the twenty or so self-important families who have gained sufficient power and finances to demand their own fiefdom? We cannot slight them after all they have done to enslave Palestinians. Truth be told, whatever Arab entities are formed would all be dysfunctional requiring a constant stream of money in order to claim functionality. Thus the world would be demanded to continue the investment of billions of Dollars and Euros every year with it soon to rise to trillions except for one small item; once these entities have taken Israel out, the world will lose all interest and these entities will be on their own which would soon result in five to ten surges of refugees leaving these dysfunctional states seeking the comfort of the European Union and member state’s safety net to care for them as they plot the overthrow of whatever friendly bureaucracy was feeding them. One need remember that the sole thing these Arabs have been trained to do is throw rocks and claim themselves victim to any and all conspiracies happen to be popular, the one percenters at the bottom using the government to allow them to change places with the top one percent. Even if such were possible and the European Union actually did such a useless venture, the new top one percent would be the bottom one percent within three years and the previous top one percent would rise from the ashes as unto the phoenix reborn from the flames and depths of poverty right back to near if not in the top one percent. But the world would be left wanting, forever the poorer, if they destroy Israel.

Why would we claim the world would be lost without Israel? Well, that is an easy one. Should Israel disappear, as the powers that be appear to desire, then soon the world would lose the remnants of the Jewish race as with nowhere to run and find other Jews ready to defend the family, they would simply perish as their connection to Judaism, true and Torah observant Judaism, is barely tenable as it is and would be cut forever without a place to call home. The rising anti-Semitism is claiming that its roots are in Israel and the brashness and irreconcilable rejection of making peace and allowing the formation of another Arab state taken out of its lands, its hide so to speak. The British Mandate lands were supposed to be the Jewish State but the British made as a justification for stealing over three-quarters of the land that the Jews would never number sufficient population to require as much land as was set aside, as if there would never in any future be the possibility of Jews in numbers to require more than the lands left for them which are attempting to again steal pieces. Jordan ended up with the lion’s share of the land but there is no manner of way the world would have Jordan absorb these people whom they once granted citizenship and then rescinded it when the land was returned to Israel. People need to understand that on the morning that Israel became a nation, her borders included all the lands west of the Jordan River, all of Gaza, all of Judea, all of Benyamin and all of Samaria. Jordan and Egypt were the true occupiers, the real colonialists taking lands from an indigenous people. But now there has been invented a new indigenous people who have their claimed roots in Judea and Samaria called Palestinians. They never resided in Syria, Jordan, Egypt or had ancestry from the Arabian Peninsula, they have lived in the “West Bank” practicing Islam for nine-thousand years according to a statement made and then retracted from the PLO Facebook page. Never mind that they were not present in the years before 1850 and almost none were reported residing here in Mark Twain’s account of his travels in the Holy Lands, neither Jew nor Arab as the entire population was as sparse as the vegetation, look it up.

 

But that has changed, and boy has it changed. There are bustling cities with tall new buildings with their glass and steel gleaming from amongst a patina of the old which still remains and refuses to surrender its land but slowly the new replaces the old as if a correction bringing modernity to a land whose ancient roots run deep into the soil. There is a vibrancy and in the north between the rising metropolises there are farms and open grazing lands still used by shepherds and their flocks who follow ancient routes to their grazing areas doing so as they have for centuries thus knowing when to move saving the lands so it will refresh for the visit next year. The mixing of new and old is even evident in the farming as in some of the less arable lands the water is recycled constantly with nutrients carefully injected into full hillsides of hydroponics raising crops and produce year round. There are orchards of olive trees seemingly as old as the hills whose sides they cling to as if to claim their area and protect it from other plants soaking up sun and soil. There are even mixtures of peoples with some wearing the dress from centuries gone faded into the past in Europe and the rest of the Western World but preserved as so much is in this truly ancient land that is sprouting a new shape amongst the old. Israel reflects the culture in which start-up companies appear in numbers unmatched around the world and only exceeded by nations beyond comparison in size and populations. Yet there is a hesitancy amongst many who fear the world and what it might think or say. In a land where boldness exudes from every corner and people strike out to force their way into the world and high-tech is the buzzword as well as the byword for so many, but those are not the politicians. Even those who made their name in technology and innovation and have now turned to politics soon lose their formidable presence and soon become hesitant, troubled. They begin to doubt even themselves, or so it seems. The brash and strikingly bold politicians who rose and defended the land in deed and word and always with style that was proper but always gave a spark of hubris appear to have deserted Israel and been replaced with the crafty and calculating always guarding their against misstep and so carefully crafting their words that they too often nuance their meaning making it unintelligible. The glamour and wonder of your words lose effect if their meaning is not starkly defined and presented framed and complete. Israel has too little precious land and lives in the midst of a roiling cauldron with wars surrounding her and threats come even from within the Knesset itself where more than a handful of traitors do stir. They are the ones with the brash boldness from which too many wilt. When they scream and make a tempest, it is requisite upon every true Zionist to take the wind from their sails and use it to sound the ram’s horns and bring down their pedestals like we brought down the walls of Jericho.

 

Perhaps what we have are too many nationalists who can live with splitting off pieces of land arguing demographics to give this away today and Hashem knows what tomorrow. The Zionist knows the boundaries which were promised by Hashem and knows that the rest of the world is equally aware though they lie and steal ambuscading that which is known but all too seldom stood upon as the principle they are. We need more Zionists of the bravado and principle as those of ages past, those like Ze’ev Jabotinsky, Rabbi Meir Kahane or more recently Menachem Begin who was a fighter who also knew the value of an honest peace. None of these Zionists would have allowed the bringing into the lands the beating heart of terrorism and murderer of all Israel if given the slightest opportunity. There is no need for Israel to surrender even a single atom of our lands because the Europeans or the Americans say we must. We need only listen to what we know and from the words of Hashem revealed in Torah, everything else is noise and confusion. We have to deal in reality of our requirement which was spelled out for us three thousand years ago when we were instructed to go and settle the land. We were not told to go and parcel out the lands to those who would simply take what we gave them and use it to launch new wars and attacks on our people. We even tried that and Hashem has made clear what our mistakes have been, we surrendered lands which were not ours to gift as these lands belong to Hashem. They do not belong to the Ministers of the Knesset; they do not belong to the mediators such as John Kerry or previously Madeline Albright or Hillary Clinton or anybody walking the lands today, yesterday or tomorrow. Hashem made it very concise and clear, the land belongs to Hashem and we are to be the caretakers, which does not include giving it to those who will despoil the land and create abominations upon our specifically outlined duty to the land that Hashem portioned out for us to care over. Hashem did not say share the land, that was the group the “Guess Who.” We need to return to doing what is prescribed in Torah and in that pursuit we will be blessed and any deviation from that is an accursed act for which we will reap curses. Where have all the Zionists gone, certainly not into politics and we need such to sacrifice and walk into the dens of iniquity, the lions’ den and be assured that Hashem will walk with you.

Israeli Choice Between Terminal Terror or Settling Our Lands

 

The current terror war, this third Intifada or stabbing Intifada, who cares what title these assaults aiming to murder Jews as declared by the Arabs are attesting, is a war which actually sprang into the world’s consciousness with the first Intifada (1987-88) followed with what the world thought was a lull followed by the second Intifada (2000-2003) which was also presumed to have been followed by another lull until this present Intifada. Somehow the world’s media has this ability to compartmentalize violence against Israelis into completely different realities depending on which groups are assaulting the Jews in Israel, and the target is always the Jews and when others are struck it is almost always claimed that it was collateral damage as the assailants were seeking to murder Jews and mistakenly figured that all Israelis were Jews. When it is Fatah and the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades then it is an Intifada. When it is rockets out of Gaza it is the longstanding occupation of Gaza that is fueling the rocket attacks completely ignoring the facts that Israel removed every military and civilian Israel from Gaza in August of 2005 in a military operation which nearly tore the country in two. When the attacks originate from Lebanon then it is Hezballah and their anger over Israeli occupation or threats of occupation presumably referring to the Sheba Farms despite the United Nations initial blessings when Israel pulled completely from southern Lebanon. The wars against Egypt, Syria and Jordan are other completely separate conflicts. Despite the reality that all of these apparent disparate conflicts being treated as completely unrelated, they are all part of a war which has been pursued since the first Islamic war against the Jewish tribes around Medina which Mohammad used to enrich his followers and finance their coming conquest of Mecca which was part expansion and part revenge for the eviction by the elders of Mecca of Mohammad earlier in his life when he attempted to gather followers after his inspired writings were revealed and he set to preaching and proselytizing.

 

This conflict would wane and return in waves over the next fourteen centuries but took on a whole new energy and level of intensity when modern Zionism initiated the calls for the return of the Jewish People to their ancient lands. This new drive by many leading Jews to reestablish their ancestral homelands in the Middle East was met by the forces of Islam who found an unexpected ally who was equally threatened by the Zionist cause, Christianity. Islam and Christianity shared an interest in preventing the Zionist cause to permit the Jews return to their ancestral homelands, specifically from reestablishing Jerusalem as their capital and most especially rebuilding the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount. The reasoning was should any of these, and especially if all of them, were to become fact, this would be considered to deliver a devastating reality making both Christianity and Islam, as replacement theological doctrines at their core, directly threatened as the Jews would have not only returned to their homelands but also have reestablished their covenant with Hashem by fulfilling their return as was forecast in Torah and other written Jewish commentaries. This was initially a battle mostly fought by the Christians as they had proposed the Jews rebuild their homeland elsewhere other than in Israel with the most favored locations in Africa such as Madagascar. The Zionists refused any location other than Eretz Yisroel with Jerusalem as their natural capital city. The British took the lead with the Balfour Declaration which presented support for the reestablishment of the homeland for the Jews in the Middle East. This led to a series of events at the end of World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire culminating in the San Remo Conference and the Treaty of Sèvres which set up the Mandate systems where the British Mandate was set aside for the settlement of the Jews in order to eventually form their homelands. The British saw that the numbers of Arabs and their limitation on numbers of Jews permitted making the Jewish State an impossibility and using this as a bludgeon, they proposed for over three-quarters of the Mandate to be used as an Arab only state named Transjordan (now Jordan) with the guarantee that the remaining lands west of the Jordan River would remain inviolate for the formation of the Jewish State. But enough ancient history, what about now?

 

The Arab war against the Jewish State began long before there was even a Jewish State to fight against. There was Arab and British cooperation in the British actively assisting the influx of Arabs even to the point of granting numerous assistances to entice increased numbers of Arabs thus preventing there being a Jewish majority and thus making a valid argument against permitting the founding of a Jewish State. These efforts proved so effective that when the vote at the United Nations General Assembly to form an Arab State alongside the State of Israel on November 29, 1947, there were more Arabs residing west of the Jordan River than Jews, one of the overriding reasons championed by the British for the need to divide the land equally between Jews and Arabs with nearly two-thirds of the lands for Israel being made up of the Negev Desert. Despite the even split of the area with half for the Arabs and half for the Jews; the Arab League completely rejected this compromise as they declared that they would rather go to war to annihilate the Jews to prevent the formation of any Jewish State within any borders no matter the size, large or small. There had been Arab violence initiated by the man of recent media imbroglio over Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s commentary relating to the role played by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, during World War II and the Holocaust while he relaxed during the war in Berlin as a personal friend of the hierarchy of the Third Reich and the organizer of the Balkan SS Division made of Muslims which were used almost exclusively to hunt and exterminate Serbians and Jews murdering millions in the process. Between the World Wars and continuing throughout the 1930s and World War II there were repeated pogroms and other violence against the Jews with the most severe events occurring in Hevron and Jerusalem. What was even more telling was the reason behind every Arab as they targeted their Jewish neighbors, just as is happening today, was the rallying cry that the Jews must be prevented from destroying or simply sullying the al-Aqsa Mosque. The more things change the more they remain the same.

The latest violence will pass claiming its first dozen victims by the Sabbath, an unfortunate possibility to consider. The current violence is being predicated on the threat of Jews destroying or desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque, a familiar call before setting out to murder Jews and destroy their stores and homes. As noted, the reasons used to whip up the Arab street are identical to the ploys applied almost a full century past when the Mufti of Jerusalem Al-Husseini called to end the desecration or destruction of the al-Aqsa Mosque by the Jews despite there being no threat of or attempts to destroy or desecrate the Muslim holy site situated off to one end almost in a corner of the extended plaza built by Herod. The al-Aqsa Mosque is not even claimed to be standing in a location occupied by either Temple and there are those who claim that there is no reason that the Temple, when built, will require the destruction of any structure currently on the Temple Mount. One thing which can be almost guaranteed is that there are no plans nor is there any desire by Jews or their leadership to destroy or desecrate any Islamic holy sites on the Temple Mount or anywhere else throughout Israel. One can only wish the same could be said for the Arabs as the recent arson and destructions at Kever Yoseph (Joseph’s Tomb) and the other desecrations and destruction of Synagogues and other holy sites throughout the Jordanian occupied areas of Judea and Samaria not to mention the other desecrations committed by the Taliban with the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddha and the more recent destructions and desecrations committed by the Islamic State amongst which was the burial site of Jonah. So what we witness is a classic case of projection which applies to far too many of the Arab claims of offensive behavior toward their religious sites and other claims of harm being simply the application of what their actions would be in similar circumstances upon whomever they care to besmirch in the name of claiming vengeance. Below are depictions of an earlier desecration, one of numerous such destructions additional to the complete destruction performed during the original occupation between 1948 and 1967 which required a complete rebuilding of Kever Yoseph (Joseph’s Tomb) subsequent to the Israeli liberation of Judean and Samaria during the Six Day War. Below that are two pictures from the recent arson assault made on the same Kever Yoseph presumably for the attempted destruction of the al-Aqsa Mosque, a desecration never even contemplated anywhere but in the mind of Mahmoud Abbas, the current holder of the position of incitement which was handed down from the Mufti Amin Al-Husseini to Yasser Arafat and finally passed to Abbas.

The repeated destructions of Kever Yoseph and the destroyed and desecrated synagogues throughout Judea and Samaria which were revealed at the end of the Six Day War plus the additional finding of excavations on the Temple Mount and construction of subterranean Mosques, or such is the claim, to replace and destroy all evidence of the First and Second Temples, proof of which has been the smaller items discovered from sifting through the tons of rubble dumped by the Waqf north of the Temple Mount. These piles of rubble are carefully searched and much of it sifted seeking the remains of any artifacts of which there had been success, limited success, but some finds making the entire efforts a success. Below is a montage of a few of the rubble piles and shown at the lower end are the efforts by the Israeli Antiquities Institute which took up with assisting the efforts when proof of their viability for actual producing artifacts though dating them has posed a challenge as it is often difficult to discern at what depth and period some artifacts represent. Many Israelis offer their time to assist with this painstaking labors of love and dedication to preserving whatever historical remains can be found.

These attempts at removal of evidence of a Jewish history throughout the lands between the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea and in the name of accuracy it must be mentioned that the original tribes of Israel also covered much of the eastern side of the Jordan River as well, is ongoing. Meanwhile, the world remains fixated on the presumed and misreported plight of the desperately poor Arabs who refer to themselves using the terminology used by the British to describe the Jews during the Mandate Period, as Palestinians. One need go no further back than World War II and research the Palestinian Brigades which served within the British Military efforts in that war. These units were comprised almost entirely of Jews from the area of the British Mandate areas from west of the Jordan River. These units were often referred to also as the Jewish Brigades and these units though initially scorned proved their mettle in combat where they excelled and were rewarded with their share of the spotlight and with numerous unit commendations and individual medals.

This story brings us back to our starting point and the situation facing the still young nation of Israel, a nation which has survived three major wars with her neighbors of which the first coincided with the founding of Israel where the announcement was made one evening and the next morning came what seemed an impossible war where Israel survived. There have been a number of conflicts with the Arabs from the Palestinian Authority (PA) and before then with the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) which was founded in 1964 with the mission statement consisting of two main goals, the elimination of the State of Israel and the slaughter of the majority of her population killing every Jew. These goals came not to “liberate” any occupied lands as we refer to the lands formerly occupied by Jordan and liberated by Israel in the Six Day War in June of 1967 but to destroy all of Israel a good three years prior to that conflict. Make no mistake as that goal is still included in the PLO and thus the Fatah and the PA Charters calling for the elimination of Israel and her peoples by any and all means required. The major difference now is that the conquest and genocidal warfare against the Zionist Entity of Israel may be accomplished in stages and it is not required to destroy Israel in one grand step, though that would be preferable by the Arab leaders within Israel today and around much of the Arab and Muslim world. That is the intent of the current Intifada, was the intent with the wars with Hamas responding to elevated rocket attacks every few years, the two wars with Hezballah in Lebanon, the two major wars with Egypt and Syria with Jordan jumping in on the second day of the first war which was the Six Day War and Jordan sitting out the 1973 Yom Kippur War, and the flotilla assaults attempting to break an inspection routine which Israel legally under International Law has the right to inspect cargoes for weapons, explosives and other tools of war and terrorism.

 

All this history brings us to the seminal set of questions for Israel today; what would be the best and most desirable settlement of the now almost seventy year warfare and the over a century of hostilities which is simply the continuation of closing in on fourteen centuries of hot and cold warfare by Islam to supplant Judaism and Christianity guaranteeing the continued survival of the nation of Israel? What are the minimal acceptable borders Israel requires for her own survivability as that was the definition in the treaty which ended the Six Day War and was still in place after the Yom Kippur war as the situation resulting from that conflict changed not one iota other than the casualties taken by the nations engaging in that conflict, namely Egypt and Syria? Finally, is this preferred border worth the coming wrath from the world as a whole? Answering the first is an easy answer, peace, a real and lasting peace, which includes the Arab world and the Islamic world supporting the wars to eradicate Israel, with mutual recognition and acceptance of borders. The truth is that Mahmoud Abbas, the rest of the PA leadership, Hamas, Hezballah, Islamic Jihad, the Islamic State, Iran, the Saudi Arabian Wahabbists and numerous others both radical and moderate all refuse to accept the existence of Israel even to a single square millimeter of even a Tel Aviv beach considered as excessive Jewish independent rule. The only solution that has been stated as acceptable is the end of Israel as a nation and the Jews permitted to live must either convert to Islam or take the role of Dhimmitude, a form of servitude and secondary class existence including numerous degradations and no recourse through the courts. So, with this as the state of affairs it becomes obvious that Israel will only continue to exist for as long as her military might and intelligence networks are up to the challenges and this is a moment where the political class can make that task a little easier. So, how would that be accomplished and what would the map of Israel look like?

The depiction above of Israel includes all of Gaza, Judea and Samaria, the last two renamed West Bank by Jordan to remove the obvious references to the Bible and Judaism, you know in your heart and mind that Judea has to belong to the Jews just as Japan belongs to the Japanese, China belongs to the Chinese, Brazil belongs to Brazilians and Iran belongs to the Persians, well, maybe this last one is a bit confusing, but trust that it is true. The one alteration which could be permitted would be letting Gaza be a nation for any and all Palestinians desiring to remain in a Palestinian state run by presumably Palestinians ruling themselves since August of 2005. I know the claim will be thrown out that Gaza is already so crowded that there is no room even for Hamas and Islamic Jihad to place their rocket launchers except next to schools, hospitals, and residences. This begs two questions. The first is why do the leadership of Gaza continuously complain that they have difficulty getting their farmed goods to sell in Jordan and Europe or others desiring their produce. Obviously there is sufficient room for farms which means maybe it is not that crowded. Secondly, why does a map depicting density of the population show that Gaza had quite a large amount of real estate which is not built up but rather quite expansive (see map below).

 

 

Population density map of the Gaza Strip where the display shows large open areas with little population where Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other combatants could operate without threat to the population but instead choose to place the entirety of their rocket and missile systems within Gaza City, Khan Yunis, Deir al-Bala, and Jabalia Camp. The Israelis, on the other hand, set up well outside the inhabited areas such as Sderot to assure the civilians are in minimal danger though these efforts are wasted as Hamas and Islamic Jihad fire their missiles and rockets and mortars into the Israeli civilian centers hoping to murder noncombatants through their actions, both Israeli and Gazan which doubles the war crimes committed by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest.

There was a wonderful article which included one of the finest definitions and explanations of why Israel honestly is one of the few nations with a claim going back as far as it has and with an unbroken chain of traceable genealogy marrying the Jewish People with Eretz Yisroel and places the Jews as the aboriginal peoples to these lands. Below is said quote;

 

“Israel, rooted in the Jewish people as an Abrahamic people, is a prototypical First Nation or aboriginal people, just as the Jewish religion is a prototypical aboriginal religion, the first of the Abrahamic religions. In a word, the Jewish people is the only people that still inhabits the same land, embraces the same religion, studies the same Torah, hearkens to the same prophets, speaks the same aboriginal language – Hebrew – and bears the same aboriginal name, Israel, as it did 3,500 years ago.”

 

Most people would understand that that is the definitive answer to why the Jewish People have the best and most ancient claim to these lands, period. Lies were told by the Arab leadership where Abbas had claimed they had nine-thousand-years of Arab history and that there was not a single Jew anywhere in these lands before 1900. So, obviously from the demands, insistences, threats, and guarantees such as the Iranian statement from last month and repeated almost daily since announcing that Israel will cease to exist by 2025, Israelis have some serious and potentially credible threat and challenges facing them with a severity which for many would preclude civility yet we are demanded to remain more than civil, we are demanded to be accommodating without complaining. The world has demanded since the six day War that Israel, despite gaining the lands in a defensive war which technically, if Israel were a normative nation and not the Jewish nation, would have been permitted to retain any or even all of the lands conquered and would be within their rights to expel any civilians determined to be a threat to their state. Unfortunately for Israel we are not talking about a normal state, we are talking about the most despised and defamed state in the history of mankind. What is surreal is that Israel had not raised a finger in anger with the intent of erasing her neighbors and had fought only defensive wars since her founding on May 15, 1948. In response to the claims that Israel must return to the pre Six Day War borders is complete and utter garbage as the ruling agreed upon even by Israel in an attempt to placate the other nations of the world, something we have since learned is an impossibility and we will be hated until the last Jew cuts their own throat saving the world from needing to do so. Understanding this unmitigated, unmuted and unforgivable truth, Israel will be assaulted continuously in every forum be it the United Nations or the PTA in Podunk, somewhere around New York State and New England. There is nothing Israel can do which would not be decried as the most evil act in human history and should Israel return to what were termed the Auschwitz Borders by Abba Eban, there would be new cries for Israel to form states from within her own borders for the Bedouins, the Druze, the Egyptians, Moabites, Edomites, Ammonites, Arameans, Amalekites, and Hittites for starters. The world would never be satisfied until there was no Jewish State of Israel. Knowing this, the answer is plain to see.

 

The challenge is to find one to be the leader who is not afraid of pressure and is willing to sacrifice their good name and would be reviled in every history book written and used in classrooms world-wide, well, except in Israel. The only answer will be to offer a generous award of money in the denomination and type of currency of whatever land the Arabs would wish to go and live peaceably, if possible, somewhere other than Israel. Taking such funds would result in your inability to return and become an Israeli and would be on a list which would deny them entry. Any Arab wishing to retain their “Palestinian” identity would receive a somewhat lesser amount and be permitted to reside within Gaza which would be Palestine and the embargo would be lifted within one year of this settlement being enacted. The rest of the Arabs residing within the parts of Judea, Samaria and Benyamin which were previously under Jordanian occupation who desire to remain and desire to be Israeli citizens would need to initially sign a nonaggression agreement which would also need for them to recognize that Judaism has the same stature within Israel that Islam has in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Libya (or what is left of Syria or Libya), Tunisia, Turkey and the rest of the nations with Islamic majorities. These potential citizens would be required to take courses on Israeli culture and its legal system as well as a course which would cover all of Jewish history which they would be required to pass an exam which would include knowing the time of year, and main concepts for every Jewish holiday as they are also national celebrations. Their path to full citizenship would easily take as little as five years with no guess on the longest estimate for completion. There would be a very simple rule for any terrorist attack which resulted in injury where the perpetrator could choose to face a trial or may instead take the opportunity to leave Israel with his family but with a far less generous cash settlement for their required adjustment to their new lives. These terrorists would also be informed that should they ever be caught within Israel they would be tried on their former crimes as there would be a special provision for terror crimes which would see to it that there is no time limit on prosecution. Finally, those desiring to remain within Israeli borders from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea may remain as alien resident status which would be almost as an equal with the main difference being they would not be permitted to vote in any elections. These final borders would remain as the borders for Eretz Yisroel, for the State of the Jews, Israel. Only should another nation attack Israel or present a posture which was a direct and recognizable threat and all avenues including but not limited to the United Nations, European Union, United States, Russia, China and any other power who may be able of providing reconciliation or in some manner ameliorating the threat. Israel would let it be known that the claiming of her almost rightful borders, and the borders she was presumably guaranteed once the Mandates and the San Remo Conference and the Treaty of Sèvres as well as other League of Nations and other treaties all of which the United Nations became the guarantor of these agreements, even the promise by Britain to keep the lands west of the Jordan River as inviolate for the Jewish State; the International Law, the international treaties and the agreements, conferences and treaties between entities and nations all spell out the truth which is from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, all of Eretz Yisroel will be free. This may be a position which would bring unbelievable pressures to bear, especially on the Israeli Prime Minister putting such a position in place and the really sad truth is that much of that pressure would be coming from within Israel and worse still, from the Jews from the most left wing communist atheist urban secular Jew to the most religious be they Chassid or Orthodox, Religious Zionist or whatever in between, their scorn and lack of support though expected and technically understood would still be that wounds that never heal as such wounds between family are the most difficult to get past. Still, Israeli leaders and her people need to learn to chant whenever the mood strikes, “from the River to the Sea, all of Eretz Yisroel will be free.” Simpler yet, “Let my people go and worship and do as Torah demands, such will produce the same resulting borders.
