When Will the World Waken to Wanton Destroyers

 

Once again let it be known that the status-quo remains in place in the ancient city of Shechem, which is now called Nablus, as the Arabs, emulating the butchery to world monuments and the holy sites of religions other than Islam of the Islamic State, and destroyed Joseph’s Tomb over the weekend. It really is not fair to claim that the Arab Palestinians, with which Israel had been cursed to deal with while the world celebrates the destroyers of culture, life, monuments, tombs and all things civil are emulating the Islamic State; as it is the Islamic State imitating what the Arab Palestinians have practiced for well over a century with their butchery of Jews and Christians as well as their desecration of all things holy including their own presumably precious al-Aqsa Mosque which is pictured beneath the horrific pictures of an ancient and holy tomb of the Jewish Patriarch Joseph burning. lighting up the night screaming for justice to be meted out, but the world forbids admitting there are destroyers of Israel and the world should they ever be given the opportunity.

The destroyers of all that is holy here in the Holy Land as pictured above desecrate shrines, tombs, and all things holy or treasured even that of their own Islamic State as long as it contributed to their wanton actions of depravity, they are capable of nothing else. The wide swath of acts of barbarity continued unabated on the Temple Mount, throughout Jerusalem and beyond in parts around Israel wherever these destroyers were able to stab any person in the hopes it might be a Jew. These acts should be expected as the status quo of a society with its media, instructions in their schools, in every part of the lives of their children are filled with propaganda of hatred of Jews primarily and any other that is not Arab Palestinian. When the world demands that Israel maintain the status quo on the Temple Mount, in Jerusalem, in the disputed territories, in all of Israel, this is what they are demanding be preserved, stabbings, desecrations and violence for the sake of violence as that has become their religion, their sacraments.

 

The status quo was preserved this weekend and the stabbings continued but that is not the message the world had received from their media from almost every journalistic media we monitored from the BBC to the AP wire used world-wide and in numerous others news purveyors around the Western World. The headlines we read claimed that Arab Palestinians were being shot and murdered by Israeli police and Jews in Israel without any concern for their rights to enjoy the pleasures of their culture and while performing religious duties, well, it may as well have said such exactly in that manner. The initial part is what was reported with the typical average being one headline which read, “Four Palestinians shot dead after attempted stabbings”, headlining the article in The Guardian newspaper on the United Kingdom. Please allow us to go further and provide the first sentence which sets the mood for the article and is above the picture that followed before the rest of the article was presented. That first line read “Three of the dead were teenagers, the latest casualties of a spiral of violence in Israel as rights groups accuse troops of ‘extrajudicial killings’” and was above this picture of one of the scenes of these ‘extrajudicial killings’ of the four Palestinians shot dead from the title.

Let us move along to the United Nations where more urgent meetings were convened to discuss the violence in Israel and how the world should view these extrajudicial killings and decide what should be done about these poor Arab Palestinian teens being gunned down by authorities and citizens alike almost wherever they appeared in ‘Jewish areas.’ While these deeply disturbing events were being debated, newly-appointed and hopefully soon-to-be-accredited Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon addressed that austere body of deliberations where he noted that a trend has existed in Israel “since President Abbas made his hate-filled speech (last month) and outrageously claimed that the Jews desecrate the Temple Mount with their ‘dirty feet,’ we have seen a sharp increase in violence against Israeli civilians.” Let’s allow Ambassador Danon to present his delivered short and concise speech himself in the video below as it is always better to see it for oneself.

 

 

 

 

“We don’t need another general meeting about the situation in the Middle East. What we do need is for this council to convene a meeting on the dangerous incitement led by President Abbas,” was the opener and what an opener that was; let us give Ambassador Danon his due credit. As stated as the main course right before the telltale visual aid employed by Ambassador Danon, he stated, “On Monday, a Palestinian boy attacked an Israeli boy who was riding his bike, stabbing him no less than 15 times. Let me repeat: 15 times! The victim is still hospitalized in critical condition. Ask yourselves, why would a 13-year-old boy decide to go on a stabbing spree and try to take another boy’s life? The answer is that such acts of terror do not occur in a vacuum. When a Palestinian child turns on a TV, he doesn’t see Barney or Donald Duck, he sees murderers portrayed as heroes. When he opens a textbook, he doesn’t learn about math and science, he’s being taught to hate.” Then he sprang an example of what he spoke about just so there would be no confusion, that visual aid is picture below.

Ambassador Danny Danon continued with his speech which included this well placed truth for the United Nations to think about realigning their glare at the real sources of destruction, the destroyers of all that is holy presenting in his own words, “What we do need is for this council to convene a meeting on the dangerous incitement led by President Abbas. Babies, children, men and women are being targeted every day. Israelis are being stabbed, bombed, run-over and stoned, yet this council remains silent.

 

Even here in Israel we have our media sympathizers such as Hadas Shteif, a senior police correspondent for Army Radio, who expressed her being ill at ease that the authorities have not been concerned as she has when she Tweeted, “The ease with which officers and civilians shoot terrorists is troubling. They come to murder but most of them are children. We must calm things down and calm down. It’s spilling over also into the criminal field. It feels bad. Troubling.”

 

Fortunately there were a couple of following Tweets commenting and challenging Hadas Shteif’s emotion filled rant against the sanity of stopping the destroyers while they are in the act of stabbing and murdering everybody in their vicinity, perhaps for them to receive psychological treatment instead of shock therapy currently being provided. The initial tweet we reference was by Nehemia Gershoni, who wrote, “spilling over into the criminal field?! Did you see what happened when they didn’t immediately shoot but tried to neutralize by other means? Besides, the overwhelming majority are adults, check the facts.”

 

Another Tweet came from David Elbaz, who added “and the ease with which these animals murder Jews doesn’t trouble you. Better that you should feel bad rather than the mother of one of our Jewish brothers.”

 

The United Nations, international media and news services and numerous others including officials from many national governments all have one thing they demand, and that is for Israel to prevent this killing of Arab Palestinians youths and return to the status quo. By status quo they mean allowing Arab Palestinians to burn down Jewish holy sites, desecrate Jewish tombs, riot assaulting police on the Temple Mount, show understanding for Arab Palestinian rioting in ancient areas of Jerusalem’s Old City and by all means allow their self-expressions which take the form of running over Jews, stabbing Jews, viscously assaulting Jews, throwing large rocks at vehicles driven by Jews, throw cinderblocks and rocks at vehicles driven by Jews, throw firebombs at vehicles, stores and homes of Jews, and generally be allowed to attempt and too often succeed at killing Jews. We would appreciate for the Israeli government and leadership along with religious leaders to present the Arab Palestinian authorities and society with a proposition that the new status quo which will be enforced stringently and with all required energies consists of all peoples being permitted to pray as they feel the urge anywhere within all the lands of Israel, any restriction to open prayers only can apply to the interior of particular houses of worship, freedom of movement on the Temple Mount in particular and all of Israel and to do so in safety and free of threats or fear within all the lands of Israel. Freedom from assault whether by vehicle, stabbing, stoning, shooting or other violence against their person or property within all the lands of Israel and actions of an uncivil nature targeting any individual will be discouraged to the point of official rebuttal equal to the nature and severity of such insult or uncivil action within all the lands of Israel. Finally we would like to define what is meant by all the lands of Israel, by that we mean all of Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Reuben, Simeon, Gad, Ephraim, Manesseh, Benjamin, Dan, Asher and Naphtali. For a reference please note the map below.

 

 

Left side map depicts the division of the Promised Land amongst the tribes and right side map compares the modern promised land from the Jordan west to the Mediterranean Sea compared to the maximum of area during King David’s and King Solomon’s reigns.

 

 

In all honesty, despite legally being capable of having retained much if not all of the Sinai Peninsula after the Six Day War and all of what Jordan named the West Bank along with the Golan Heights and would not have been required to accept those residing in these areas as now being Israeli citizens but instead granting them resident alien status and nothing more and even requesting those who did not wish such status move returning to within the new borders of their respective nation, be that Egypt, Jordan or Syria; instead Israel has bent over backwards to be obliging and gone further than any other nation would have gone. Does anybody believe that had Egypt conquered half the Negev, the Jordanians all of Jerusalem and part way through the passes to Tel Aviv and Syria one third of the Galilee they would have retuned a single millimeter of the land or allowed the Jews residing there to keep their lands and homes and be eventually granted citizenship? Of course not as they know that if the Jews were fortunate, they would have been forced into a truncated Israel and otherwise would have been tortured and killed down to the last child. The world knows fully well what would happen if the Arabs ever defeated Israel; there would be a second Holocaust right here in the Holy Lands and is also partly why the IDF fights so hard and assures that such a Holocaust will never happen. Why has Israel chosen to act differently? Because Israel is an honorable and civilized nation and the world knows this as well and is partly why they place all the onus for peace on Israel when unless the Arabs choose similarly any compromise is a fool’s game and will only hasten the day when the world gladly mourns the death of Israel under Arab or Iranian assault. So, may our leaders awaken to reality and simply reclaim the entirety of Judea and Samaria and allow the Arabs to remain as resident aliens for as long as they remain nonviolent and if turning to violence they should be deported, end of story.

Middle East News From the Other Perspective

 

With the waves of refugees and other various persons attempting to storm the fences and borders of Europe running into water cannons, hastily thrown up twelve foot fences, riot police, military forces and Heaven knows what other obstacles. It is like all of a sudden we have Apartheid Europe. The media have noted that Angela Merkel, Prime Minister of Germany, who had pledged to give refuge to eight-hundred-thousand Syrian and other refugees, has thrown up every conceivable barrier assuring Germany is closed at the borders and probably had not even allowed eight-thousand, let alone eight-hundred-thousand, refugees across her borders. Many have probably asked themselves that all important question all things in the Middle East eventually come around to, what has Israel done and how can we place the blame on Israel and force them to take in every last refugee. Well, I will give the small amounts I can remember and then an opinion or two.

 

First-off; Israel has taken in hundreds, if not thousands, of injured people from the Syrian border without any question as to for which group, side, terror outfit, civilian, innocent or guilty or even member of Bashir al-Assad’s ever diminishing Armed Services and treated them all at no cost, nursed them back to full health or the closest point possible and returned them back over the border with a few very select minority which have remained here for reasons I am not privileged to know. We have been providing these services which include performing emergency operations, transport to the many different hospitals in order to provide the best possibility for survival and recovery, and even provided some degree of physical therapy where necessary. These services have been provided free of charge but far from free from costs as many of the wounded required multiple surgeries and extensive recuperation time which was necessarily provided under special conditions for the security of the patient and the State of Israel and her people. Needless to point out that each patient had to be kept separate from any other patient from the war-torn nation as it might prove detrimental to have two patients handed over the border for medical assistance housed in the same room or even near each other in a hospital even with a twenty-four hour per day guards on their room. We desired to mend these fellow human beings and taking such risks might have proven detrimental to such ends.

 

Hopefully there are not any out in the world who expect Israel to take any refugees in from the Syrian war or the Iraq war or especially the war with the Islamic State. We hope that those we have treated will not come back at some future date and make our investment in mending their wounds suddenly become detrimental to our own people’s health and happiness, but sometimes these are the chances one takes when being decent peoples. Israel is all too experienced in being on the losing end of humanitarian gestures throughout the millennia of our existence and in the four corners of the globe and everywhere inbetween. As far as Israel taking in refugees from the violence in Syria and the devastation which has resulted, Israel had offered some refuge to two tribes of Druze and have also granted them Israeli umbrella of protection warning that actions against these Druze, after consultation and determining they desire, Israel will provide all necessary assistance for their protection. There have been discussion about having the Israeli Druze population make offers to take in these Druze from Syria, an offer which was turned down as the Druze desire to remain in their ancestral home. As far as Israel allowing Syrian refugees to enter, such would first be destructive to Israeli society and second would be a security nightmare attempting to discern which were true refugees and which were terrorist plants or other subversive individuals who would prove to be a danger to the Israeli public.

 

In other news which we have noted, news reports were leading with most articles telling of the IDF airstrike in northern Gaza on a terror weapons storage warehouse. What was finally mentioned in the third or fourth paragraph was that three rockets were launched at Ashkelon, which would have struck the heart of the city if not for being intercepted by Israel’s miraculous Iron Dome system which successfully destroyed all three rockets, and could have easily resulted in heavy loss of life. These three rockets were the exclamation point on the drib-n-drab of one rocket every other or third day until this escalation. Of course there was little if any mention of the rocket fire over the past couple of weeks as such attacks have become an awkward form of normal and as long as the projectiles do not kill anybody or earn an Israeli retaliatory strike, they do not reach the level of being newsworthy as targeting Israelis is not all that exciting. Apparently, unless the news can lead with Israel launched an attack on poor and unfortunate innocent Gazans where fortunately nobody was injured, then there can be no article. Has anybody noticed that unlike the rockets, rock attacks, recent gunfire and firebombings, the Israeli attacks seldom cause any casualties unless there is a specific target such as a ranking Hamas or Islamic Jihad terrorist who is in the process of planning or training a terror squad for an attack. This is oddly intentional and makes Israel one of the few, if not only, nation to go to extreme lengths to not even have attacks which kill terrorist forces if at all possible and mainly target terror structures and supplies and almost always in the wee morning hours when all the terrorists are home sleeping soundly in their beds.

First item which is as shocking as it is disgusting was the desecration of the memorial erected to commemorate the life of slain hiker Danny Gonen three weeks after its unveiling the slab has been defaced by Arab vandals shown in the above image. There have been many recent rock attacks with on particular assault one Rosh Hashanah evening in Jerusalem which resulted in the murder of Alexander Levlovitz age 64 who lost control of his vehicle after a cinderblock sized boulder smashed through his windscreen. Meanwhile, the world including the Arab League, the King of Jordan, the Royals of Saudi Arabia, numerous United Nations officials and the same expected Western officials from NGOs and other Western entities including select governments have been complaining about the criminal violence and rioting on the Temple Mount. The facts are meaningless as almost unilaterally the demands have been for Israel to take steps to end the violence on the Temple Mount, the city of Jerusalem and the entirety of Judea and Samaria. They claim that Israel is responsible for the violence and must therefore end the violence. What has been left out on this miscarriage of justice and ignorance of the facts is the accepting blindly the Islamic accusations that Israel is responsible for all the violence and only Israel can correct the problems which will end these ever increasing waves of violence. Let’s take each of the areas of violence one at a time working from the large to the most specific.

 

The violence in Judea and Samaria has the widest range of events. These incidents are laughingly referred to as rock throwing. These projectiles are to rocks what the Saturn Five Moon launch vehicle is to a roman candle. These are rocks varying in size from as small as a hardball to as large as cinderblock and these are simply the thrown varieties. Those which are dropped from bridges are considerable larger. Also included in these “rocks” are firebombs, read Molotov Cocktails, which vary in size from twelve ounce bottles to as large as two liter or even larger bottles filled with various flammable liquids, some thickened to allow them to stick to the targets and light them on fire. These projectiles almost universally target vehicles with Israeli license plates. The people hurling these projectiles are Arab youths between age ten to twelve to well into adult ages up to even over thirty. There are also numerous tactics used in delivering these rock and firebombs with one using blocks the size of one to two cinderblocks but solid rock have likely the most imaginative method where a lookout stands around a corner looking for a likely target, preferably a vehicle with Israeli license plates and a family riding inside. When the lookout sees a preferable target they call their accomplices who are at the far end of a straight piece of road leading to the curve in the road with a hill or buildings which conceal their approach. They then accelerate attempting to reach maximum speed a short distance from the curve and the Arabs in the back of the pickup truck then hurl the rather large rock or group of smaller rocks and a firebomb or two and then make the turn at the curve, pick up their accomplice and disappear after making a maximal damaging assault. It was such an attack which injured Adele Biton causing her massive brain damage. She was almost three at the time of the attack and lived to see her next birthday and was given a party at the hospital where they had been using surgeries and physical therapy in an effort to save her young life. Adele Biton finally succumbed to her injuries within a year or so after the initial injury in a rock attack.

Moving to Jerusalem the attacks include rock attacks though the tactic of using vehicles to deliver larger rocks is almost unknown. Instead there are more rock attacks, rock ambushes, rioting, muggings, firebombings and recently shootings. There are rock ambushes used against parties entering the Mount of Olives Cemetery by the Arabs attending the Arab Schools at the top of a wall overlooking the main road leading into and out of the cemetery. There have been recent ramping of the violence in Jerusalem with shootings and Molotov Cocktails utilized in attacks between neighborhoods with Arabs victimizing Jewish residents the main direction of the assaults. There have been the uses of vehicles to strike at people waiting at train and bus stations. It was an assault within the confines of Jerusalem which caused the death of Alexander Levlovitz age 64 over the past week as well as starting one home on fire. The same kinds of attacks are daily occurrences on the Temple Mount. The Arabs have been instructed to make visiting the Temple Mount near impossible and make it into a horrific experience instead of a positive and spiritual experience. There are screaming crowds of women and men who flock surrounding Jews who ascend to the Temple Mount destroying any enjoyment. These demonstrations are under orders and financing which include Jordan and Saudi Arabia and other Arab and Islamic forces. These same forces and commanders who are giving the go ahead to assault Israelis with terrorism are the same sources with the complaints that Israel is to blame, something the world, especially Europeans, lap up like a sponge and water. These demands for Israel to put an end to the rioting on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and beyond are a collection of bald faced deceitful lying political entities attempting to garner world support for pushing Israel from the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and eventually the Middle East. They know their entire front is as false as they come and that if the world would approach these accusations honestly the Arab forces would not have a leg to stand upon. The actual target of these forces, both the perpetrators and the supportive forces from around the world is the death of every last Jews on the planet and they will not stop until they have driven the Jews into a small enclave and arranged for the annihilation of those within the enclave. That is their minimum demand and their demands only become more shrill and all-encompassing of all things anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and ultimately anti-Semitic. The only way to end their campaigns of lies is for the Israelis to use whatever force required and drive them from our rightful lands as per every treaty and having precedence over every argument which can all be found with simple searches and are things either we have already covered or will do so in the not too distant future. In the meantime please know that the left is not the friend of Israel or those who treasure Hashem and believe in Heaven as the left has no room for such people and would have them arrested and shot if they could.

 

Overnight we had a series of events which, though tragic, could have been far worse. Under the cover of early morning darkness two-thousand Jews were escorted in armored transport (busses) by IDF security forces to pray at Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yoseph) located in Shechem (Nablus), Samaria. They went to pray and honor one of the greatest Bible figures and whose tomb, a shrine, originally was presumed to be left under Israeli control. The necessity of such precautions such as armored busses and IDF escorts became necessary after Palestinian rioting and organized assaults drove the IDF and Israelis from the entire town and then desecrated Joseph’s Tomb burning the entire contents and collapsing the dome. During that firefight in Shechem an IDF soldier was injured and the Palestinian Fatah gunmen took up positions guarding the injured soldier refusing to allow for his retrieval or treatment watching for hours as the young man slowly bled to death. Since then Kever Yoseph has been destroyed regularly and rebuilt by IDF and religious Jews. This morning we can add additional violence to the events at Joseph’s tomb as, while guarding the worshipers, approximately sixty Palestinians launched an assault on the tomb hurling rocks firebombs and other projectiles as well as rolling burning tires into the compound injuring one soldier but fortunately none of the worshipers. The young soldier was evacuated to a hospital for further treatment. While looking at the images of the desecration of Kever Yoseph, a defilement not worthy of international outrage or even a mention by the mainstream media, imagine what the front page pictures across the world would show if the same was done to the al-Aqsa Mosque.
