And Abbas Finally Speaks the Truth About Israel

 

While speaking to a special session of the Human Rights Council this past week, Wednesday, in Geneva, while Abbas requested the United Nations, the Security Council in particular as only they can provide what he is demanding of late, that the Human Rights Council demand and fully back his demand for international forces be sent to protect any Arabs, Palestinian or Israeli, from being prevented by police, Border Patrols, Israeli Defense Forces or Israeli citizens interfering in any way their attempts to murder freely Israeli citizens. Understand that these attacks may be targeting Jews but there is a statistical chance of one in four that the target attacked will be other than Jewish and a twenty percent chance of their target being a fellow Arab. Abbas’s speech had a number of goodies which we will post outtake pictures of the selected frames for ease of reading and include the entire video at the bottom for the less patient who are also fast readers, though one need not be too fast a reader I have been told.

What is it that makes Abbas so irresistible that whenever and to whomever he desires to speak to, most especially United Nations, attached NGOs, and other Agencies instantly upon an Abbas request for special sessions are instantly coordinated? The next thing required to interpret Abbas’s brief brush with the truth is to do some rudimentary mathematics, a simple case of subtractions before delving into a little history.

 

 

Abbas United Nations Math which takes year 2015 subtract his desired 67 years erasing history to 1948 before Israel founded

This has been the never to be stated aim of the entire terror war from even before 1948 which was the year in which Israel was founded on May 15th, from even before the riots instigated and called for by the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al Hussein who made calls for the riots on Arab radio stations declaring that the Jews were desecrating the al-Aqsa Mosque and were also preparing to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque despite there being no evidence or potential truth to his claims. These broadcasts called for pogroms against the Jews of Jerusalem and Hevron as well as numerous places where the violence was somewhat muted but all in all the acts of rioting close to one-hundred-fifty Jews were murdered. In the main areas where any intervention might have ended the violence the British policemen did not open fire fearing that if they had shot into the Arab crowd, the mob would have turned their anger on the police. There will be those who may claim this source is tainted due to its presumed slant but we can attest that we have heard that it may have been a single shot from a British Officer which scattered the Arab rioters which was fired due to some of the Arab rioters coming uncomfortably close to the British section of troops who stood and simply witnessed the pogrom without any concern. The source Think-Israel tells a slightly different story themselves quoting with regard to Mr. Cafferata, both the Memorial Book and the testimony of the survivors record, with damning unanimity, that Mr. Cafferata did nothing for two hours. The Memorial book records: “From our knowledge, we say with certainty that it would have sufficed to issue a warning, or to fire some shots into the air, and the crowd would have scattered. It was only after there had been sufficient butchery, plunder and rape, and the pogromists were about to attack an English officer, that some shots were fired, and the mob dispersed at once.”

 

The 1929 rioting had been preceded by rioting in Jaffa in 1921 and on and off rioting and assaults since the first Jewish settlers arrived in Palestine in 1882 from Russia and which were also followed by further rioting incited in much the same manner in 1933, as well as consistently from 1936 through 1939 across the different places in what would eventually become Israel for one evening before the assault on Israel the next morning by seven Arab armies crossing the borders with Lebanon in the north, Syria the Golan Heights in the northeast, Egypt in the South, and Saudi Arabia and Yemen from the southeast and Iraq and Jordan from the east. Just in case anybody ever doubted what the actual real borders of Israel were as when she declared her independence, allow me to repeat without naming the armies which poured over them in the hopes of enjoying what was to be an easy genocidal murder of every last Jews but somebody forgot to tell the Israelis, they were Lebanon in the north, the center line of the Golan Heights in the northeast, the Jordan River to the east and a line extending from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea as if the Jordan River had continued that far as it most likely did a long time ago and the Negev Sinai border in the South with the Mediterranean Sea to the West. This means that Israel originally included the presumed ‘occupied lands’ referred to as Gaza and West Bank.

 

Well, as promised, the video itself for your viewing pleasure followed by some concluding remarks.

 

 

 

 

There are a fair number of people around this world of ours who are willing to grab ahold of any claim against Israel and run it into the ground and hopefully doing the same to Israel. Their blood lust to have Israel torn asunder, destroyed and further not all that likely to lose a moment’s sleep if every Jews were slaughtered in the process of Israel’s destruction. They will claim they have nothing against the Jews, only with Israeli policies and decisions and the violence they use to enforce their laws and protect the life of all Israelis, including the twenty percent who are Arabs and the other five percent who range from Bahá’í Faith to Hindus and from Buddhists to Shinto, from Christians to Mennonites and Jews to Zoroastrians and lastly also Muslims (all of which are growing populations in Israel and often Israel is the sole nation with growing populations as the rest of the nations in MENA have dwindling populations of all but for Islam for various reasons as they are all growing and enjoying the freedom of religion in Israel). These same people appear not to have anywhere near the same level of concern and critical spite for Syria, Islamic State, Libya, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan Nigeria, Cameroon, Ukraine, Myanmar, Mexico and numerous other places in the world; they just hold a special animus against Israel, the sole nation of the Jews. Many of these haters of Israel will claim they are not anti-Semites but merely anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Settlers who just happen to be Jews yet if asked if they would be willing and openly accepting to have a couple of million Jews emigrate to their country and they will suggest that perhaps a smaller amount, the percentage equal to their population against the rest of the world, crowding, you know, there is such limited space here and other reasons. Some might even use that all time favorite that the Jews would not be happy here and they would rather go elsewhere. There are claims that the Jews need to return to Germany, Russia, Poland and the other European nations and the United States, you know, where they came from, but that ignores close to half the Jewish population. The Jews who came to Israel when they were expelled, chased, nudged or elbowed out of their homes and businesses often permitted one or two suitcases per family or person depending on the nation and had their bags checked and any jewelry, monies or other items determined valuable like art or coin collections, were removed and not permitted to leave the country across MENA (Middle East and North Africa) most of which ended in Israel, all over eight-hundred-thousand plus of them over the decade that followed 1948 and they now make up close to half of Israel’s Jewish population. What are the chances that these Arab nations would accept them back and not simply exterminate them upon arrival and quite likely with the aircraft they arrived in? There is nowhere for the six and a half million Jews of Israel to go and there are about to be an entirely new influx of Jews from the Ukraine, Europe, and soon even the United States, Australia and the remainder of the Anglosphere. Israel with her original eastern border of the Jordan River straight down to the Red Sea as was promised by the British and that agreement signed onto by almost all of the Western World and even Japan and King Faisal. How much more is required to permit the Jews to have their nation returned, and not even the entirety of their ancestral home which crossed to over both sides of the Jordan once reached to the Litani River, and reached Euphrates River after the conquests of King David and the rule and management of King Solomon as depicted in the left most image 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.

 

 

The right hand picture above depicted the aboriginal boundaries of the Jewish State which reached the Litani River to the North, straddled both sides of the majority of the Jordan River basin and surrounding lands and continued south crossing beyond today’s border into what today is referred to as the Sinai Peninsula. Considering the above pictures which defines the different states of existence of the Jewish State in its aboriginal state and the lands according to some decisions on aboriginal peoples and their rights to their former lands would allow for an enlargement of the boundaries Israel would be happy to see returned such that Israel return to her original lands the moment before the Arab war of annihilation which Israel survived but as she lost bordering on one-third of her land mass she cannot be claimed to have won, just merely survived.

How Can One Compromise with Those Holding Such Positions?

One of the leading representatives with Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority, Jibril Rajoub, was giving an interview on Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen TV when he allowed the truth to leak out. Mr. Rajoub when queried as to whether the Palestinian would ever plan to return to negotiations with the Israelis replied that negotiations would be considered only if the Palestinian Authority’s preconditions are met. It was in further explaining what he viewed as the Palestinian Authority’s desire in place of negotiations that he stated, “Listen. We as yet don’t have a nuke, but I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning.” Rajoub is the Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and chairman of the Palestinian Authority Olympic Committee. This should make for some serious doubts as to the sincerity of any position including compromise with the Israelis the Palestinian leadership express in interviews given to western media outlets. As many other as well as we have pointed out, if only the world would take the time, investing some effort even if only to satisfy curiosity and translate what the Palestinian spokespeople express when speaking in Arabic translating and placing them in their reports with equal prominence they give their articles denouncing Israeli efforts at self-defense, the public would be well served in making an informed and balanced evaluation of the realities of the Palestinian-Israeli peace process. Unfortunately, it appears that truth and honest reporting are the first two casualties in the mainstream media coverage of virtually all things concerning the Middle East and its relevance and importance to the current world struggles.

 

In another recent television appearance, another senior PA official, Sultan Abu al-Einein on Palestinian Authority TV stated about the recent stabbing murder of Evyatar Borovsky by a Palestinian terrorist recently released from Israeli custody, Salam al-Zaghal, “We salute the heroic fighter, the self-sacrificing Salam al-Zaghal. He insisted on defending his honor, so he went against the settler and killed him. Blessings to the breast that nursed Salam Al-Zaghal.” Such comments being broadcast on Palestinian, Lebanese, Egyptian and other Arabic broadcast media are far from being the exception, they are by far the rule. It is solely due to the willful negligence of our Western mainstream media that prevents such claims from being widely known and the hidden truth behind who are the true impediments to peace being more broadly recognized. When covering the Middle East much of the media either omits information or represents misinformation unchallenged as if it were fact. There is a near constant drumbeat claiming that the presence of Israeli communities on established Palestinian claimed land which prevents any possibility for peace and stands in the way of negotiations. What is not explained are the facts that the Palestinians not only claim the areas known as the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem but also the rest of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, the Galilee and all of the land that makes up Israel, every single square inch. The Palestinian leadership reserves the right to continue the resistance until all of Palestine is freed which is an actual declaration that the terrorist attacks must continue even after any peace accord which may be signed in the future. Whenever this fact is admitted in the Western media it is portrayed as belonging only to Hamas and Fatah and the Palestinian Authority are represented as being moderates who are willing to make peace. The unfortunate truth is that the Fatah, the PLO, the Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab League all hold fast to their claim to replace all of Israel with an Arab state and the eradication of any trace of Judaism as their only acceptable goal. Since the Khartoum conference of 1967 the entire Arab World has held to the Declaration of the Three No’s; No peace, No negotiations, and No recognition. Such a position does indeed make holding peace talks rather difficult.

 

The truths which are lost because of the ruse known as the Palestinian’s claim to reconstruct their ancient homeland called Palestine are that there never was in all of history such a place as Palestine, the British used the term Palestinian to describe the Jews who resided within the British Mandate, The Balfour Declaration addressed the rights of the Arab populations residing within the British Mandate, Transjordan (currently called Jordan) was created as the Arab State for those Arabs living within the British Mandate and required the Jews to relinquish their legal claim to 78% of the British Mandate, Israel was not required by UN Security Council Resolution 242 to relinquish any of the West Bank but to relinquish only those lands acquired as a result of the 1967 War that were not determined by Israel to be vital for secure borders. Of the lands under UNSC Resolution 242 Israel has already relinquished well over 75% of the area by returning the Sinai Peninsula to the Egyptians, and lastly the original conflict was never between the Israelis and the Palestinians but between the Arab World and Israel.

 

Even should one look at the Oslo Accords one would almost immediately draw some interesting conclusions. The Oslo Accords drew three distinct areas within what is often referred to as the West Bank, and was historically referred to as Judea, Samaria and Benyamin (which kind of explains why those wishing to prevent Israel from claiming these areas had to rename them), into three separate areas, A, B, and C. Area A was given over to complete control of the Arabs under the auspices of the PLO and Yasser Arafat. Area C was given over to total Israeli control. Area B was jointly controlled by both the Arabs and the Israelis. This makes an obvious demarcation suggesting the intended solution originally was that Israel required all of Area C as their minimum needs to have basic security and the Arab population already, as it existed, was concentrated within Area A. This left Area B which held some concentrations of Arab villages and farms, some open lands, and some lands claimed by Jews who had their lands confiscated by the Jordanians after the 1948 war which the Arabs referred to as the war to eradicate the Jews and Israel calls their War of Independence, which gives some insight to the perspectives of the two sides. Since Area B was placed under dual control one might be led to think that these were the lands disputed between the two sides as originally observed when the Oslo Accords were enacted. It also would be prudent to believe that the negotiations should have been over where the border should be placed in order to fairly divide the lands within Area B. Instead we have muddied the original intents to the point that there have been discussions of granting the Palestinian Arabs a corridor across the Negev Desert so that their areas near the Jordan River have easy access without entering Israel to Gaza and the Mediterranean Sea, never mind that by doing such Israel is cut in two and is no longer contiguous, as long as the Palestinian areas are contiguous everything should be wonderful. There was a period when Mahmoud Abbas felt he had such a strong position he began claiming the entirety of Jerusalem as the capital city for the Palestinians. Fortunately, somebody managed to disavow him of such a felonious concept. All of this is a prime example of how far removed today’s perceived realities are from the original ideas of the Oslo Accords, let alone from the decisions, treaties, conferences, and even the White Papers which were all ratified soon after World War I and blessed by the League of Nations, the United States, Russia, and even the leadership of the Arab World, King Faisal. Sometimes time worsen wounds, not heals them.
