Abbas Proved Correct in that Oslo is Dead, Now What?

 

Palestinian leading terror master has declared the Oslo Accords to be dead and that he is no longer obliged to be responsible for any of the Oslo promises or parameters from said agreement. That leaves no structural framing for any future for the Palestinian Arabs once the Israelis realize that all hopes for peace between Israelis and the Palestinian Authority, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah. But the dead of the Oslo Accords could be the first step to realizing an actual and achievable solution. If Oslo is dead, then the Palestinian Authority dies and should be buried right along side the Accords. It also has relegated Netanyahu’s 2009 Bar Ilan speech dead and also ready for burial. That means that the entities which Israel is left to deal with come down to three terrorist groups, Islamic Jihad, Hamas and the PLO. Unfortunately, Mahmoud Abbas is the leader of the PLO, thus the wily scoundrel remains to be dealt with. There is one other entity which died when the Oslo Accords were pronounced dead, the concept of a Palestinian State or any such entity and it did exactly what Abbas has threatened to do numerous times, it made Israel now responsible for ruling its Palestinian Arab residents. There is an option which all sides have mutually decided to never look towards, but will prove the only viable solution in the end, just in a modified arrangement.

 

The initial step to any solution is as basic as one can envisage, the removal of every vestige of the former Palestinian Authority leaving only the terrorist PLO to rule the Arab areas of the Shomron matching the situation in Gaza led by Hamas. Israeli politicians and all supporters from the right now need to expunge any and all references to the Palestinian Authority and Arab statehood from their vocabulary. Mahmoud Abbas is only to be referenced as the master terrorist atop the PLO terror organization with whom Israel has an uneasy ceasefire in place. The reference to the forming of a Palestinian Arab state should now be altered to refer to how to best deal with foreign invaders who appear sworn to the end of Israel. Framing all discussions over what can be done to extract those willing to live beside Israelis in peace accepting a multicultural and multiethnic society from the terrorists set on our destruction. Once separated, dealing with the terrorists becomes easy, you give them a set amount of time, say two weeks, in which to be removed from all of Israel after which they will be hunted down and shot on sight. Now would comes the problem as to what to do with the remainder of the Arab population.

One solution comes from dissertations of Torah and may actually stem directly from Torah. This solution provides that Israel differentiate between those willing to reside within our nation accepting the Noahic Code and willing to follow all of our laws. Those willing to remain under those constraints will be permitted to vote in their local elections but not in the general elections where Knesset Ministers are chosen and a ruling coalition established. The remaining Arabs will have to choose between leaving Israel peaceably or be ejected from Israel forcibly. To refresh everyone’s memory and to make sure that this is clear as it can be, the Arabs will be given three choices after the leadership of the PLO and other factions of terrorist groups have been removed from the scene. The Arab Palestinians can choose to remain and live peaceably under Israeli laws, they can choose to accept a buyout from their property and leave under their own volition and lastly they can decide they will fight to their death to destroy Israel, at which point they will be at war with Israel and treated accordingly. Their life expectancy will have become very brief. This set of options need be given to the Arabs residing in the Shomron including the refugees and eventually extended to the Arabs residing in Gaza should wiping Gaza clean of Hamas and Islamic Jihad ever presents itself. The Arabs who choose to remain under Israeli rule need have one thing impressed upon them, namely that any connection ever be found between any family member and terrorism will result in the family being deported. This is to be a final decision which will not be overturned except if family members turn in the terrorist amongst them.

 

The advantage of this method is that the Arabs get to choose whether or not they remain in the land and their choice will be honored by Israel. They will not likely find a path to citizenship in their lifetimes, but the far future is difficult to predict. Those remaining Arabs will have better economic opportunity and will be granted work permits as required in their finding employment within Israel, especially if such employment places them inside the separation anti-terror barrier. The problem comes in dealing with those Arabs who choose to lie and are actually remaining in Israel to perpetuate the fight aiming for the destruction of Israel. These Arabs along with those who return infiltrating into Israel to carry out attacks will be sought out by Israeli security teams and will be prosecuted in the most severe manner. Any resistance in their apprehension could very easily result in their being eliminated, as deadly force will usually be approved in these cases. The lives of the Arabs remaining will improve sharply, returning to their pre-Oslo levels of economic growth, as their governance will not be taking funds off the top for a war with Israel and self-financial-enhancement. This initial program could be titled “The Three Paths” as the Arabs will be given three distinct options from which to choose. Those identifiable terrorists will have been deported along with the entirety of the leadership permitting a peace based governance with an emphasis on improving the lives of its citizens replacing the sacrificing of the lives and using death as the driving force of the society. Additionally, Israel will also gain as the terror planners will have been removed and will no longer be working to destroy Israeli lives. Further, the Jordan River will return to being the eastern border for Israel, a formidable obstacle which makes any ground assault far more difficult and easily repulsed.

 

This solution should be offered the Arab population in the Shomron and even to permit those Israeli Arabs who prefer to leave Israel to do so. The one important fact which must be solidly impressed upon the Arabs who are leaving is that they will face great difficulty in returning to Israel legally. They are to also understand that their entry into Israel illegally would be treated as having the intent to commit acts of terrorism and a third attempt would be punishable by death or life in prison. The serious nature of such infiltrations must be made crystal clear and the resultant punishment being excessively heavy must also be impressed upon the Arabs choosing to leave. The leadership of the PLO and Palestinian Authority needs to understand that their deportation has earned them a persona-non-grata classification and any attempt to reenter Israel would result in the death penalty. The departure of the terror leadership must be made permanent thus any attempt of their return must face the most severe punishment available. When the world, specifically the European Union and United Nations all implode over the Israeli solution, Israel need have a ready response giving the nagging nabobs of negativity an offer to send these terror masters into exile under their roofs. Such an offer would reveal their duplicity immediately and very hopefully end their whining. All of this will only work on the eastern front. The deprogramming of the youth educated in UNRWA terror manufactories replacing the seething surges of hate with a proper education such that their future will depend upon a solid knowledge base and not be wasted on acts of terror and hatred. It must also be made clear that marriage to an Israeli citizen will not automatically place one on a path to citizenship but might actually result in the Israeli citizen losing their citizenship.

 

Gaza, on the other hand, is a different case. Two or more generations have been raised on ever increasing hatred and terrorism. Their education was almost completely lacking any of the basics of mathematics, language, science and the other subjects a normative education provide. Instead, they have received indoctrination into the Hamas and Islamic Jihad philosophy of hatred for Israel and the Jewish People. Their education raised them on a steady diet of vilification of the Jewish People and Israel. This leaves Gaza beyond redemption with only one option, the complete wiping of the area clean. The unfortunate consequence of such an operation would be a heightened level of hatred and violent intents. Israel would be required to fortify the entirety of the Egyptian border and work a relationship out with Egyptian President Sisi that would permit Israel permission to strike the terror centers operating near the Israeli border within the Sinai Peninsula. Such an agreement is probably already in place, but if not Israel could also provide the Egyptians with a second front against the free-ranging terrorist groups operating within the Gaza. This could work strongly in the Egyptian’s favor by eradicating some of the terror centers and the leadership caught within the raid region. But Gaza will require a general cleansing with only civilians completely removed from terror as potentially being permitted return after the Gaza expulsion. There would also be a second bonus for Israel resulting from such a cleansing, it would make the plan for the Shomron appear to be benevolent by comparison and thus possibly mitigate some of the complaining coming from the European Union.

 

Once Gaza has been cleared and the Shomron parsed and separated with hopefully peaceable Arab citizens remaining, then Israel can begin to work on some of the infrastructure to bring it on par with the rest of Israel. Repairs and installations of new facilities can be started and this would provide a jobs stimulus to the area. The ending of the terror attacks from the Arab regions would also work towards the acceptance of Israel as a fact and a place where Arabs have rights, in many cases more rights than those in the Arab nations. The only remaining threat would be from Iran along the Syrian and Lebanese borders with Hezballah, the IRGC and Quds Forces. Eventually, Iran will launch a blistering assault firing some thousands of rockets into Israel which will need be treated as a declaration of war. The next time Israel is required to enter Lebanon, Israel will require that this be the final time that entry will be required and will end all attacks from Lebanon as a result. The first primary target should be Nasrallah being plucked out of his bunker and taken to Israel to stand trial. Then all of the ranking members of Hezballah need to be taken prisoner or killed in the field. Finally, all Hezballah structures must be utterly destroyed and their ranks so desolate that they simply become vanquished. There must be no trace left that Hezballah once held sway in Lebanon. Lebanon need be returned to its Christian intended roots. Should Israel be required to enter Lebanon, then whomever is left in charge of the Lebanese government after Israel completes their efforts will need to accept that the new border with Israel will be defined largely by the Litani River. The Arab nations which allow terrorism to be launched from their shores must be made to pay a steep price in land and destroyed infrastructure. They can also expect that they will be responsible for resettling those who lose their land and homes to Israel resulting from such a war. It is well past time that every Arab nations permitting terrorism to roil from their shores, especially against Israel, must be held to pay a price and to be responsible for the consequences. This will prove to be the only means of ending this plague of terror from engulfing the globe. This idea can start with Israel and the rest of the world can play catch-up, as is usually the case.

 

The final end to the Arab resistance and refusal to accept Israel will become far more tenable an idea once Israel has brought an end to the terror weapons currently in use. Without the terror weapon, the sole other alternative to accepting Israel is to engage in a war with Israel. If we have read the Arab world correctly, they really do not desire to go to war with Israel, as the potential losses are far more regrettable then any possible gain. The wars launched against Israel always resulted in Arab disasters with high casualty rates. Any general war today might actually result in the Arab people being able to realize their leaders’ inability to defeat Israel as the majority of the Arab world has access to CNN, Fox News and the rest of the mainstream news media. This time losing the Sinai Peninsula would result in the Egyptian People watching the defeat in a slightly delayed broadcast, and this would be true even if they were required to get the news from a European channel. The only means of presumably winning a war with Israel would be the method which Iran has threatened, nuclear weapons. The problem with using nuclear weapons on Israel is probably the quickest means of having the same unleased on their nation with devastating results. There is no winner in an all out war and if the rumored Sampson Option really does exist, then whomever attacks Israel will have brought about the destruction of Mecca and Medina as well as numerous other holy cities on top of virtually every Arab capital city being eliminated. These were the presumed cost of attacking Israel with weapons of mass destruction. This was made evident when Saddam Hussein threatened to use nuclear weapons against Israel during the Gulf Wars. It has also been brought out during the Yom Kippur War though many doubted the existence of an Israeli second strike capability. Perhaps the time has arrived for Israel to clarify its nuclear weapons capabilities just to make a positive impression that attacking Israel will bring your total collapse after Israel retaliates.

When Opportunists Meet

 

Moshe Ya’alon rode his wave of disruption and vitriol for all it was worth on his way out the door after turning a reprimand and offer of peace into a council for war, a war against his former friend, Bibi Netanyahu. The final fuselages fired from Ya’alon’s political muskets were easily deflected by a simple set of truths. There was the open defiance of his generals followed by the expressed displeasure of the serving Prime Minister, the same Prime Minister who had entrusted in Ya’alon with the position of Defense Minister not expecting a challenge to Netanyahu’s right and fitness to lead Likud, a position he was elected to hold by the membership of Likud. Ya’alon sided with his generals and then encouraged them to further make waves for him to ride roughshod over Netanyahu in a naked aggression challenging for the top spot. Even this was not sufficient for Bibi to declare war as he is secure in his position. The Prime Minister followed this insult with a soothing balm in the form of the position of Foreign Minister, a fine appointment most would all but kill for, yet insufficient for the hungry Ya’alon who sees now as his time. Slamming the door behind as he left the building, Ya’alon declared his intentions to replace Netanyahu as leader of Likud at the next opportunity, now he just needed wait for said opportunity. But political ambition is not a patience game and one strikes while the iron is hot.

 

Ya’alon must have welcomed the charging of the Retired Generals in their blistering reports titled Security First penned and presented by a group of retired generals and other security chiefs self-defined with the name “Commanders for Israel’s Security”. Their plans were just a rehash of their defeatist plans of surrender land and expect peace, a trade which despite numerous trials has yet to produce a true peace with any level of security. But when has failure ever altered the political path these other opportunists who have jostled their final military assignments so as to position themselves as the saviors of Israel from a problem many were complicit in forming. We can expect more from these gems in the rough as they polish their acts and each other to a lustrous shine, but diamonds these are not.

 

Former Prime Minister, Defense Minister and opportunist extraordinaire who had played friend, mentor, commander, and opponent all when it comes to his presumed friend for the expedience, an expediency which we can assume has now past, rides in Ehud Barak. One can only fear that Tzipi Livni cannot be far behind, though she would likely be seen and avoided as Kryptonite as every political entity she has touched withered and died unchosen on the vine. Speaking Thursday at the Herzliya Conference Ehud Barak called for a “popular protest” going into the next elections in order to bring Netanyahu down from power. One can only assume he sees himself as the answer as he often has previously. His claim was summed up in the quote, “A fanatical nucleus of radical ideology has taken over the Likud by taking advantages of loopholes in the party’s constitution regarding primaries, and ‘cleansed’ Likud’s leadership of all those who valued democratic values more than populism or a temporary accomplishment.” Why not just call his former boss and prior supporter as well as adversary an adversary again, the time seems right and the correct attacks from the right people appear thick in the atmosphere, but is this political fog one of change or just a low lying haze blinding small men’s sight? Attacking the entire Zionist branch of the populace as well as their representatives in power, Barak went on to restate previously disproven canards declaring where the current dreaded path would lead pronouncing as proven fact that, “Implementing the government’s current policy will necessarily lead to an ‘apartheid state’ or a ‘binational state’ with a Jewish minority within a generation or two, with a high likelihood of being engaged in an ongoing civil war between its two parts.” Population statistics and all other studies performed on any logical assessment of annexation of Judea and Samaria have shown both the apartheid state’ or a ‘binational state’ accusations of unavoidability to be as false as predictable trends can prove, but why let facts get in the way of another attack from the leftist peace through surrender camp. Their previous peace through surrender in Lebanon and Gaza have turned out so well, why not triple down and bet the house one last time, and it will be the last time as those who are fortunate might escape back into the Diaspora.

 

Ehud Barak then pointed out that should Prime Minister Netanyahu take Israel down the dangerous path of annexation, even of the main settlement blocks, it would bring ruin down upon Israel and that the only true path would be to start and start immediately dismantling the Settlements in occupied West Bank and bring them back within the Green Line as such would pacify Europe, the United Nations, President Obama, and, most of all, the Palestinians. There would be peace and flowers would grow on barren soil and there would be peace, blessed peace. There is absolutely no possibility that Mahmoud Abbas would rain rockets tipped with sarin gas down on Tel Aviv at the sight of three soldiers talking as he would claim Israel was massing troops to invade and had to be prevented. The world would then congratulate Abbas for keeping the peace as he destroyed the other settlements temporarily occupied by Israel, the settlements of Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Netanya, Ma’alot, Ashkelon, Beersheba, Dimona, Eilat, Jaffa, Haifa and the rest as they join in the desire with Mahmoud Abbas that Israel, the Jewish State, must be destroyed and destroyed utterly. These are the voices and sounds of the next Holocaust waiting for some fool to facilitate it in the name of Peace.

 

Quoting Jeremiah 6:14 as was so famously performed by Patrick Henry in his speech to the Virginia House of Burgesses on March 23, 1775, considering ratification of the Declaration of Independence he talked of Peace, peace, but there is no peace, the speech in its entirety, one of the most powerful of all speeches throughout history, he concluded stating (full text of speech can be found here)


Gentlemen may cry, ‘Peace! Peace!’ but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

 

Ya’alon, for his part, has changed his tune now referring to Iran as a minor nuisance and not an existential threat as he had previously claimed when serving as Defense Minister, something we can simply assure ourselves he was ordered to claim that by the warmonger Bibi in order to frighten the masses into continuing to keep him and his Zionist crazies in power. Never mind that Abbas has said so in just so many words, unfortunately in that coded language which none appear capable of translating or even reading other sources who have translated them for the lazy such as us, there can be no peace as long as even a millimeter of Palestinian Land is occupied. Here is part of a press conference from 2015 where Mahmoud Abbas speaks his truth on occupation, sixty-seven years, since 1948 and the founding of Israel.

 

 

The maps used by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian and UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) schools all show the truth according to the Arab Palestinians teach their reality which has no room for an Israel and especially an Israel as the homeland for the Jewish People. It is the totality demands that resistance of the occupation has been claimed to remain even after any two state settlement may be reached as for the Arabs the only result they will accept is the ‘liberation’ of all of Israel and the eradication of all Jews.

 

Palestinian Textbook Maps depicting Palestine as replacing Israel, not sharing the land in peace and security as the Europeans and the rest of the West insist to misrepresent

 

Abbas Accepting Map Depicting Palestine Replacing all of Israel and Looking Extremely Pleased

 

The evidence of the real Palestinian agenda is often laid bare for all to see but most just ignore the evidence and instead believe fairy-tales they have heard repeated by Western diplomats and politicians who want a Nobel Peace Prize which comes along with even a long handshake between Arabs and Israelis. When Soda Stream moved its Judea factory within the Green Line in the northern Negev, they were met by BDS (Boycott Divestment and Sanction of Israel) claiming a victory and then made known their new program against Soda Stream. The BDS claim was Soda Stream buckled under their pressure and then they immediately claimed that the new Soda Stream factory was built on ‘occupied, stolen’ land from the Bedouin town of Rahat, Israel. This is simply a case that the only thing acceptable to the BDS campaign is the eradication of Israel and every Jew residing there after which they would likely turn their sights on all other Jews. There is a reason their chant goes as it does other than to rhyme but to express their true goals when they proclaim, From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea; Palestine Must Be Free!

 

 

These small and inconvenient facts do not bother the likes as the Retired Generals and Security Chiefs nor does it bother Moshe Ya’alon or Ehud Barak as any weapon in a fight is to be utilized and the war against Bibi Netanyahu must proceed despite any dangers which might arise. In this case not only does reality bite, but these opportunists chomp and chomp again at the bit just salivating for their chance to take home the prize. That is the reality that these opportunists live for and what they would be willing to allow all Israel to die for as a result. Just as long as they get to sit in the big chair in the big office being sought by small and petty men, that any consequence be damned as they demand their rightful prize. Further, it is tough out there but before jumping ship, and trust that we have our misgivings about Bibi and would love another choice of a viable and true Zionist, how much tougher will it be when the economic heart and soul of Israel lie smoldering with the acrid stench of death and chemicals fills the air? What is the use of new leadership at the helm steering the ship of state through coral shoals and waters if the mutineers have no true map, just this crazed notion that the sweet song from the shores is irresistible and they must draw nigh ignoring the jagged and sharp rocks and the broken timbers from previous ships who too ignored the warnings and answered the sweet Siren’s song. The sweet song of peace in our time has been tried countless times but there is a way which guarantees that Israel will live, that Am Yisroel Chai, and it comes from the Spartan phrase, the words of King Leonidas,

When Lunacy Rules and Lunatics Follow

 

If one really wishes to get into the minutia and every particular of the latest lunacy, one can read the entire PDF document Security First which gives the entirety of a plan for a new partial surrender of land for peace. Then going further with a series of sources there is the entire media blitz from a group calling themselves “Commanders for Israel’s Security”. No matter how they tell their story or whatever blitz and glitz they add to polish it and make it sparkle and dazzle, their plan is another retreat without requiring the Arab side to make any concessions or even to recognize Israel’s right to exist as the homeland for the Jewish people. There is this impatience which infects groups time after time as they break down under the threats and demands from Europeans and other international sources, in this case including Saudi Arabia represented as a neutral source in this discussion, to make something happen where the world can see that there is some action in the movement towards peace. The problem is that every time these pressures force an action, it is always some group of Israelis who insist that if only Israel shows her good faith then the Arabs will reciprocate. There is only one small flaw in their reasoning, the Arab side has never ever reciprocated and instead has promised that with the assistance of world pressure they will step by step destruct Israel until it is shrunk to the point they can destroy it in a single attack.

 

There were the demands from the United Nations, the Europeans and America as well as Mothers of the IDF who said we needed to pull back from the security zone in southern Lebanon and trust United Nations peacekeepers and the promises of the Lebanese government. Israel bent largely due to the vigils and media pressure from Mothers of the IDF more than the world pressure and Prime Minister Ehud Barak with assurances from the Generals of the day, today’s retired generals, retreated back south of the Blue Line, the United Nations and internationally recognized border between Israel and Lebanon. United Nations inspectors came and blessed the retreat as being all proper and recognized as being complete. The area which was vacated by Israel did not become a place where the Lebanese army and United Nations peacekeepers took control and guaranteed Israeli border security. Instead Hezballah took complete control of the areas south of the Litany River to the Israeli border. The United Nations peacekeepers remained in their posts and never patrolled or made any move without first checking with the Hezballah forces. The claim was they could not find any Hezballah forces. Perhaps they should have checked the other side of the building the two shared on the Israeli border (see below). Then the inevitable happened and the cost was worse than any low level violence in the safety buffer zone which Israel had surrendered to Hezballah in their voluntary retreat to the Blue Line to satisfy world and Israeli defeatist pressures.

 

United Nations Hezballah Share Border Building

United Nations Hezballah Share Border Building

 

The inevitable started on July 12, 2006 as Hezballah fired diversionary rockets into Israel targeting a small community across the border which masked their ambush of an Israeli patrol. Israel forces had fallen into the worst possible of situations where they performed their patrols on a schedule almost like clockwork. This allowed for Hezballah to time their rocket attack to coincide with a cross border raid. Hezballah initiated the raid by firing anti-tank missiles at a Humvee patrol resulting in three soldiers dead and two Israeli soldiers were abducted. Hezbollah demanded the release of Lebanese prisoners held by Israel in exchange for the release of the abducted soldiers to which Israel refused and responded with airstrikes and artillery fire on targets in Lebanon. Hezballah responded with rocket fire into northern Israel launching from bunkers and residential homes. Israeli return fire struck both the Hezballah bunkers and the homes and other public buildings used by Hezballah. Hezballah had learned from Hamas and the Arab Palestinians to fire from civilian structures and then place the resulting damage when Israel returned fire on rocket launch positions hitting civilian structures from which the rockets had been fired. Israel eventually made an ill planned hasty assault into Lebanon with infantry and tanks and paid a heavy price for their lack of preplanning and preparations. Israeli losses included five tanks destroyed, numerous helicopters destroyed, one naval ship heavily damaged, one-hundred-twenty-one IDF soldiers killed and one-thousand-forty-four injured as well as forty-four civilian deaths and one-thousand-eighty-four civilians injured. Casualties on the Lebanese and Hezballah side included an estimated five-hundred Hezballah fighters killed and Amnesty International numbers of civilian casualties showed approximately one-thousand dead and estimated four-thousand-five-hundred injured. As with every war between Israel and a terror enemy, they set their launching sites and combat strong points located in the presence of civilians and civilian structures in order to maximize civilian damages and casualties and then petition the world media to condemn the horrific civilian toll resulting from the Israeli efforts taking absolutely no blame on themselves and gaining media sympathy worldwide.

 

The situation today is potentially even worse as, thanks to Iran providing rockets and missiles via Damascus, Hezballah now has an estimated one-hundred-thousand to one-quarter of a million rockets and missiles pointed at Israel with at least one third having sufficient range to reach anywhere in Israel. Hezballah leader Nasrallah has sworn in repeated broadcasts that in the next war with Israel he promises to destroy Tel Aviv and kill untold thousands of Israelis leaving the entire nations in ruins. The deafening silence from the world over his repeated threats to launch complete and utter destruction on Israel is not that astounding as condemnations must at worst be leveled against Israel in equal or greater proportion to those leveled at her enemies. The next war, may such never come to pass, may result in heavy damage in Israel but the damage which will necessarily be leveled on Lebanon just in efforts to destroy as many missile and rocket launchers to prevent a devastating number of Israeli casualties will be utterly horrific. Neither side will win the next conflict while any success will be in avoidance of destructions and minimizing casualties. Israelis will once again need to stock their shelters at the first sign of increased agitations and threatened hostilities as they may be spending an extended amount of time sitting in these very shelters. There are numerous reasons that Israel requires shelters for every tenant in any new structures with each unit having a hardened room for protection. May these reinforced rooms never need to be used.

 

Then there was a second lesson where in August of 2005 Israel removed thousands of Israelis from Gaza and removed all IDF forces turning everything over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority. Within two years in 2007 the Palestinian Authority lost Gaza to Hamas offering minimal resistance during a week of hostilities. Since then Hamas has forced a war every two to three years with ever increasing rockets being fired from civilian areas rather than using the farm lands which surround the crowded city areas. This is done to increase the damage caused to the residents of Gaza. What is the saddest is that Hamas leaders never fire the rockets from the wealthier areas of Gaza and always from near apartment buildings. For the record, most Hamas members live in these wealthier areas of Gaza (see examples below). The resort hotels, main business districts, wealthiest neighborhoods, luxury mall, best restaurants and homes of the rich and famous are saved from being used as rocket launching sites. The destroyed areas you see all the time are from a somewhat limited area of Gaza City in the poorest neighborhoods mostly bordering as well as inside the Gaza City refugee camp which is run by UNRWA and whose residents are seldom permitted beyond the camp boundaries. Think back to the riots in Los Angeles, Ferguson, and Baltimore and there were great amounts of damage and devastation almost all within the central black and poorer neighborhoods but where the politicians live and the wealthy and the main business sections of town were untouched. The same is true in all of the Gaza Strip, the poorest suffer and the wealthy continue to enjoy life.

Now the next brilliant idea is to surrender everything east of the security fence/wall/barrier removing any Israelis residing in these areas such as settlements like Itamar, Hevron, and a total of approximately forty-percent of settlements even including some areas which would be quite surprising as the security barrier runs far closer to the Green Line than the shrill arguments would lead one to believe. The retired Generals and other Security Chiefs with so much experience by their own admissions, have shown that this time it would be different as we could take our time and deconstruct the areas we would eventually be surrendering and the IDF would remain in the entirety of the areas in which they currently are operating until such time as an adequate security arrangement and force could be implemented. So, Israelis would leisurely be removed because immediately after Israel adopts this suicide pact there would be screaming from all corners of the globe, well, Europe and Turtle Bay (United Nations) along with the United States State Department and President Obama for the Jews to be out of those now admitted illegal outposts. So we would see Gaza redux as far as our withdrawal but the IDF would remain just like they remained in the Security Zone in southern Lebanon. What exactly do these men of great and brilliant minds see happening when, like Lebanon, we start losing three or four soldiers a week to snipers and that occasional squad of ten to twelve in a single ambush. We would have the Mothers of the IDF and headlines every time a single soldier got a hangnail telling of the anguish and pain. Peace Now, B’Tselem, and Breaking the Silence would have a bevy of soldiers interviewed all terrified of the horrific conditions and rules of engagement (there might be support against the Rules of Engagement ROE from us claiming it was too restrictive) which would be shown three times each newscasts and lead every hour on IDF Radio. How long would it be before the world pressures us that the Palestinian Authority Security Force was ready, willing and able to assume control from the IDF leading to another Hamas coup just like in Gaza or worse, Islamic State moving in on the Palestinian Authority forces? I would generously give it three to four months, with a six week deadline, for the start of the pull-out-now demonstrations to begin abroad and at home. So, we would have a mixture of the failed policies of Lebanon and Gaza mixed in a dangerous concoction called land for peace. Imagine the potential disasters of almost pulling out of Judea and Samaria without a single concessionary peep out of Mahmoud Abbas and likely his greatest encouragement and praise for such a great day it was for peace. That alone should scare the life out of everyone. This plan actually has received the Saudi seal of approval as being sufficiently close to their Saudi Plan, the Arab Plan, which was labelled as suicidal not all that long ago. But then we have always realized that our fortitude was left wanting and we were always overly optimistic about reaching an honorable peace. Somehow a unilateral surrender of large swaths of lands to our sworn terrorist enemies cannot be allowed to become our definition of taking the first move for peace. Thus far we have taken approaching a dozen first moves for peace without ever receiving anything other than a demand for more and faster with the current retreat.

 

This plan, wrapped in such a long winded and gorgeous package, with pretty and dazzling colors and backers from the most respected of all left-wing, post-Zionist lunatics Israel has been capable of gathering, when stripped bare, it is the surrender of Judea and Samaria in Toto to the Arab Palestinian Authority for the brief moment until something worse comes along, just like Gaza. What government institution dropped the ball and gave these former generals and security chiefs the right to attempt an end around on the elected government. This entire idea is reminiscent of the Oslo Accords which were hammered out under the cloak of darkness and secrecy from even the members of the Knesset and anybody who might have raised the alarm against the Oslo Accords. Instead of a reasoned debate the fateful signing of the Oslo Accords was a done deal before any deliberations could have been entertained. This “Security First” publication and proposal has all the earmarks of a secret treaty carried out behind the backs of the elected coalition members and is being given its inaugural rollout with the appearance of a done deal where the signatures are as if on a binding treaty and one has to wonder is there a signature from the other side hidden to be revealed in a week or two as the government is blindsided by an international agreement to which this self-appointed shadow government has already promised full Israeli support and readiness to comply with the withdrawal post-haste. The governing coalition must present this “Security First” document into the Knesset for a very public and full blown consideration before being summarily discarded as the piece of trash it really is. There is no ignominy which the authors of this plan could be subjected to that would be beyond their deserved treatment. Further, if the government cannot tear up this faux-treaty, then the coalition need be dismissed and the core uniting plank in the next coalition must be formed around the complete and unabashed rejection of every morsel of this poisonous concoction. These retired generals, commanders and security chiefs have attempted to shackle Israel with making her near impossible to live with the high ground just east of Ben Gurion International Airport and a full seventy percent plus of Israeli public, production, power generation, industrial heartlands and other forms of economic and social centers as well as the beating heart of Israel, Jerusalem, all under fire from Arab rockets and other projectiles including mortar, artillery and sniper fire, as from some of the surrendered high ground one can view the Mediterranean and everything between the heights and the beaches in question.

 

The claims that the world will look at Israel differently, that the world will support us retaking the area when everything fails, that the world has our backs are all lies. The world will look at us differently as they will know Israel cannot exist in such a state as every international carrier will cancel all contracts with Ben Gurion International Airport which will have fallen silent except for the El Al counter and concourse. The world would far sooner every Israeli be driven into the sea than allow us to take the high ground from our murderous tormentors and only have our backs in order to sink their knives up to their hilts applying the final coup de grace such that they can take credit for finishing the Final Solution and make the world safe from the violence of jihad as the only reason for jihad, Israel, has been eliminated. That is an utterly false concept but it is no different than the “Security First” concept for Israeli final surrender before the world, the very world which will care for our plight and provide the necessary support when our needs become dire. When Mahmoud Abbas gets wind of this proposal, he will publically refute it as not being sufficient as it does not address the right of return or the complete withdrawal from all of Palestine which must be free from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

 

What will be the final result should this deal become fact? First is all commerce within Israel will cease for all intents and purposes; Israel’s busiest airport will fall silent; Israel will become a ghost town as those who had not previously fled would now go underground and pray to be rescued before it would become too late. Finally, the words and arguments will have resulted in stripping Israel back to the borders she had up to the Six Day War. With Israel stripped bare of the added depth which has become so vital against rockets where line of sight allows for easier corrections and more ease in choosing said targets. Even the Dimona complex will now be vulnerable as will the trains should they venture into open ground as they must to be useful. Jerusalem will be the first to feel the pinch as she will have become cut off from the body of Israel and will likely face strangulation as the Arabs will be overlooking both rail and road access to Israel’s historic and spiritual heart. After Jerusalem falls and her Jews are taken hostage, what will be left for Israel to do to resist the next assault? The Prime Minister, President and the majority of the Knesset will have fallen with only the crafters of the horror unfolding will be permitted escape back to the body of Israel. Here these weasels we call generals and intelligence chiefs will be the ones the people will now turn. Irony of ironies that those who made the entire scenario possible will be the ones asked to lead in our darkest hour. Israel has chosen to follow leaders whose errors almost destroyed her people but these leaders will get every Jew murdered through their perfidy and once Israel is to fall this time, it will be her last fall. It is that this cannot be allowed to happen which gives us the hope that sufficient Israelis are awake and know that land for peace is simply playing Russian roulette and we have already played that game too long. Time to leave the party and try a new land for peace, the one where we keep the land and that brings us eventual peace. Oh, and the Arab terror leadership, their schools and everything used to try and destroy us is part of cleansing Israel from the poisoners surrounding her. First, let us clean our house of vipers and snakes lying in the tall grasses who have tried repeatedly to claim surrender is victory and weakness is strength all while claiming with peace the land is not necessary. Instead we need but follow the commandments in Torah and settle all the Promised Lands and peace, strength and vigor will return and other greater miracles will ensue. First we do our assigned part and then the rest simply becomes the unavoidable future which prophesy told us in Psalm and Proverb. The answers have been right there for all to find and follow and the time to choose is rapidly to be upon us. These generals and security officials are the false prophets as we have seen the fruit of their counsel and troubles and misery has been the result. It is time to choose new counsel and to follow new paths to a fruitful future. It is time to follow a book which had proven the one true path to freedom, justice and most precious peace.
