What is written here could apply to any organization, it is just that the “Israel Teachers’ Union,” for the reason of continued acceptance, or so was the excuse given to those who objected, that accepted and signed the World Teachers’ Association (WTA) what can only be described as another BDS supporting document which was presented supporting the statement, “the continued Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the existence of illegal Israeli settlements there and their impact on the lives of Palestinians, including access to water along with the blockade of Gaza, has imposed severe restrictions on economic and social development in Palestine.” Unsurprisingly enough this has caused a split in the membership of the teachers’ union in Israel. What has developed is surprising in that the teachers who have been most outspoken against the signing of this odious document being threatened by the post-Zionist members of their union with legal actions to shut them out of the debate. Perhaps the time has come for a real Zionist Teachers’ Union which supports their nation in its life or death struggle over the acceptance of the pro-BDS document such as the one their leadership found so important and likely not all that odious a document, if not a document with which they were in total agreement, just so they would not have been barred from the WTA. One needs to wonder if these same representatives were to attend a META (Middle East Teachers Association) if such an organization were to exist, and a document was drafted demanded the “Right of Return” for over five-million so-called Arab Palestinian refugees’ would this document also be acceptable to remain as accepted by Israel’s enemies? One might be led to believe they would as such would not be in contradiction to their personal beliefs as they have no feelings or belief in Israel as the home nation of the Jewish People but rather as the democratic multicultural conglomeration of people bordering the Mediterranean Sea with no particular special character.

 

There can be no middle ground between teachers who are Zionist and believe in Israel as a separate and special nation unique among the nations as the reestablishment of the ancient state of the Jewish People after near two-millennia and the establishment of the G0d given opportunity for the Jewish people to once again be the People of the Book and a light unto the nations established to give hope to those in the world who desire a better world that was established by Hashem, formed by Hashem, styled by Hashem and commanded by Hashem to carry His message to the rest of the people on the planet He created, formed and established to celebrate the glory, magnanimity, supremacy and transcendence of Hashem. Even if one only desires that Israel be the nation for the Jewish People and the only place on all of Earth that the Jewish People would be able to flee should the world once again become overcome with Jew hatred ready to end the existence of the Jews once again, the aim of powers and empires almost too numerous to list over the last thirty-five-hundred years of history to genocidally murder the Jewish People starting with the Ancient Egyptians and further attempted by the following empires and forces with such intents but not limited to: the Amalekites, Chaldean Empire, Philistine Empire (not in any way related to ‘Palestinians’ as the Philistine people were of Greek extraction and were absorbed into other peoples and ceased existence over two-thousand years ago), Babylonian Empire, Assyrian Empire, Persian Empire (Haman and his sons against Mordechai and Queen Esther and the Megillah of Esther and the celebration of Purim), Greek Empire, Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Crusaders, Spanish Empire, Ottoman Turkish Empire, British Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, German Empire (part of the cleansing of German tribal lands of the accursed Catholics and Jews based on writings of Martin Luther), French Empire (during the purification of France under the troops controlled by the Catholic Church and the French Cardinal and the one pursuit the Royalty joined with the Catholics despite their struggles for outright control of France), Russia Empire Under the Czars (the driving force behind the Czar’s orders for a book be written which could be utilized to prove Jewish conspiracies to control governments and as being a danger to the rule of the Czars which became “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion which is used in numerous Arab and Muslim countries to explain their suspicions and hatreds of the Jews even today), Nazi Empire, Soviet Empire (under Stalin who claimed the Jews were the ultimate Capitalists and thus enemies of the State and an unacceptable threat despite many Jews, including Leon Trotsky, being instrumental supporters of the revolution), and who next, the Arab forces such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS and other Arab Islamist supremacists or potentially Iran where chants of “Death to Israel” are even more common than those of “Death to America” both of which are regular staples of the Friday after prayer services but before nightfall.

 

The fact that an Israeli Teachers’ union representatives value sitting amongst those who would have them murdered if given the opportunity to do so without having any direct involvement more than they value the Zionist principles that values the survival of the Jewish People over being politically correct or fitting in and everything else involved with going along in order to get along is enough to make one feel ill and to demand that those teachers who understand and value the continued love of and dedicated to the preservation of Israel as the Jewish State and sole refuge for all the Jewish People reestablished as the historic right of the original indigenous peoples in our lands to depart the company of traitors and start a second teachers’ union with a Zionist agenda and that fully supports both Israel and the Jewish People. The fact that members of the Israeli Teachers’ union would threaten and even consider bringing legal suits against those teachers who would even broach the subject and suggest that signing such an odious document in the first place and then defend it with such threats is further proof that there can be no compromise nor is there any room for dissent from the views of the self-appointed moralists who would condemn their fellow countrymen in such a despicable manner. There is little need to attempt to alter the convictions of these post-Zionist teachers who apparently have co-opted the existing teachers’ union and as is the case in all too many Israeli institutions from the Supreme Court to leadership of the vast majority of political parties to the Israeli Teachers’ union, amongst all too many unions which populate Histadrut and taking similar stands due to their history of extremist leftist and communist control which are almost invulnerable to the forces of change.

 

Nowhere is this more evident than in the community organizations and NGOs such as B’Tselem, New Israel Fund, Breaking the Silence, Gisha, Combatants for Peace, Adalah, Coalition of Women for Peace, Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Alternative Information Center, Bimkom, Ir Amim, Machsom Watch, Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, Physicians for Human Rights- Israel, Women Against Violence and other similarly named NGOs which like the Israel Teachers’ Union are made up of Israelis and usually largely Jewish Israelis who are sold on the same old, tired, tried but failed and failed miserably mantra of land for peace. This is despite the fact that there is not a single evidentiary backing for the concept of Israelis, and especially Jewish Israelis, ever trading a piece of land and receiving even prolonged calm, let alone peace for the efforts. As has been documented repeatedly, every single time there has been the surrendering of lands, not only did that sacrifice not bring peace but has been universally followed by additional violence and often a prolonged and steadily increasing theater of horrific violence. Inevitably it has become known that the violence had been planned ahead of such exchanges specifically to be used as proof that each sacrifice was insufficient to appease the unappeasable appetite for dispossessing Jews of their lands in this their dear, ancient and, for many, holy lands. The first attempt at such a series of events was during the early 1920s when the British struck a deal between the Zionist Congress and the Arab leadership within the area of the British Mandate lands as well as the Arab League and the Mufti of Southern Syria. This deal entailed that in exchange for all the British Mandate Lands east of the Jordan River, constituting approximately 78% of that said Mandate lands, being surrendered of claim for inclusion of the establishment by the Jewish nation and being surrendered for the establishment of an Arab State for the Arabs residing in the areas of Southern Syria, thus the remaining 22% of the lands which constitute the lands west of the Jordan River will be made inviolate and reserved for the Jewish People and their State. This was what was agreed upon and signed by the parties including the British as the Mandated Power to implement the promise of a Jewish State making everything legal and a settled matter well almost settled. This deal was followed by a slowly increasing intensity of violence against the Jews living in areas west for the Jordan River which peaked with rioting and mass assaults on the Jews in 1929 and this calm followed by ramping violence repeated itself peaking again in 1933, in 1936 and again in 1939 and then settled down during the era of World Wat II largely due to the presence of British troops in numbers plus the existence of a Jewish Brigade made up of Jews who volunteered to fight with the British in the Middle East and mostly in northern Africa which was called the Palestine Brigade. The reason was at the time of World War II and before as well as until the name of Palestinian had been co-opted by Yasser Arafat in order to claim the periods when the Jews were always referred to as the Palestinians and those who took the name under Arafat had been called the, wait for it, the Arabs.

 

After World War II the lead-up to the founding of the State of Israel in May of 1948 came and surprisingly enough, the next offer to share the exact lands which the British and the world had claimed was inviolate and reserved solely for the Jewish State. Such is the worth of promises made unto the Jews. Under the United Nations Charter in Article 80 the world body unanimously supported honoring the Mandate system and all agreements made within that framework. This obviously included the agreement made by the by Britain, the power of the Mandate in question, with the World Zionist Congress that the lands west of the Jordan had been set aside solely and inviolate for the Jewish State in exchange for the surrender of the lands east of the Jordan River, which constituted over three-fourths of the Mandated lands. Despite this agreement being in place and obliged to be honored by the United Nations, the General Assembly passed on November 29, 1947, Resolution 181 which suggested the lands west of the Jordan River, the exact lands the British had guaranteed would be inviolate and the United Nations has adopted as its sole policy when ratifying Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, be divided evenly into an Arab and a Jewish States respectively. This generous offer went so far as to divide Israel as in the map below where the orange area of the map would have constituted Israel while the yellow area of the map would have constituted the proposed Arab state. This meant that approximately half of what would have become Israel would have been constituted of the Negev Desert while the yellow areas included largely good farm lands and would have had the short-lived international city of Jerusalem surrounded which would likely have meant that all of Jerusalem as it was at that time would have defaulted to Arab control and being placed beyond the reach of any Jew. The violence ramped up considerably with the rioting and physical attacks on Jews became daily occurrences until May15, 1948, when Israel came officially into being and had war declared on her by at least a half dozen nations who had troops present to force the Jews into the sea or worse.

 

 

1947 United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 Partition Plan accepted by the Jewish Zionist Congress, precursor to an Israeli government, but refused by Arab League thus making the entirety of the Resolution 181 voided and relegated to the trash bin of history.

The threats by Egyptian President Nasser in May and early June and the massing of troops by Egypt and Syria, joined as the United Arab Republic for the duration of this war as an act of unity, on the northern and southern borders of Israel which resulted in the Six Day War was a massive increase culmination since the founding of Israel nineteen years earlier. This threatened attack was the culmination of the continued slow ramping up of violence since the armistice which resulted in an end, though without an actual peace agreement but merely a cessation of hostilities at that time, I believe called a Hudna by Muslims, and resulted in the ultimate violence, as mentioned, the Six Day War. The ceasefire from that conflict remained in place until Yom Kippur morning on October 6, 1973, which could have been claimed to have resulted after Israel had claimed one too many times her willingness to return the Sinai Peninsula in exchange for a real and lasting peace. When we reach the eventual peace with Egypt one might desire to call that the return of the Sinai as not having any lands and received peace, which as far as Egypt is concerned but one need remember that as a part of the peace with Egypt they surrendered any and all claims to the Gaza Strip which has proven to be a continual source of violence and several armed conflicts. Further, the entirety of the peace talks has been about Israel surrendering lands for peace, yet receiving nothing but violence, attacks, terrorism and death. As we have been pointing out, whenever the Jews or Israel as a nation has offered to make peace they have been greeted with more and more violence. When Israel retreated from Southern Lebanon due to ever increasing terrorism it was not even a full year before things had escalated to the point where the withdrawal had become recognized as a complete and utter failure gifting half of Lebanon to Islamist extremists of Hezballah who have driven the violence to a fevered pitch twice resulting in two wars and the ramping of the threats and rhetoric has already started once again, building up to what is difficult to envision with the entirety of Syria in flames and Hezballah having suffered serious losses may be seeking another conflict with Israel to regain some of their sorely lacking respect from the Lebanese or perhaps instill some fear into them. Meanwhile, when Israel made its peace with Jordan, Israel offered to return to Jordan the lands the Jordanians had been illegally possessing from 1948 through the start of the Six Day War in 1967, a full nineteen years. There has been almost nothing but violence and terrorist attacks ever since. When in 1999 with the aid of United States President Clinton Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered Yasser Arafat the entirety of what Arafat had told President Clinton he would require in order to make a lasting peace with Israel. When after a late night of arm-twisting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak made his offer which was met by Arafat storming from the conference and jetting back to Ramallah and almost immediately starting the second intifada, an unprecedented assault with homicide bombers blowing themselves up in pizza parlors, restaurants, hotels, bus depots, malls, discotheques and wherever a crowd of innocent Israelis could be found. This eventually led to Israel constructing the separation barrier which succeeded in preventing much of the violence.

 

This is the same separation barrier which the world has only understood to be the tall cement walls through urban areas which were necessitated to prevent the prevalent sniper fire which was slaughtering innocent civilians. For over three-fourths of the length of the separation barrier it consists of a tall chain-link fence. The perception of the barrier as a wall is simply another case of successful casting of the Israelis as being harsh oppressors which has become the adopted trope from the leftist socialist media, not at all surprising when one realizes the realities that the two greatest murderers of Jews have been the National Socialists and the International Socialists, or the Nazis and Communists. As the media in Europe and lagging almost a decade behind but making up the ground on the outside is the United States have both turned sharply leftist their reporting has simply become a form to bludgeon Israel and depict her government as a tyranny despoiling the virgin lands and victimizing the most innocent of babes in the pristine woodlands, never mind these babes carry axes to slaughter Israelis at every opportunity and then cry that the Israelis are invading and despoiling their neighborhoods when law enforcement and investigatory agencies seek to find and arrest the perpetrators of often the most heinous of crimes. Such was the uproar after two cousins murdered the Fogels, the mother, father and two brothers, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and their tiny little sister and newest member to the family, three-month-old Hadas as they slept one Shabbat Night. Or the slaughter of four rabbis in morning prayers in a synagogue in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood in West Jerusalem of Har Nof murdered by cousins, Odai Abed Abu Jamal, 22, and Ghassan Muhammad Abu Jamal, 32, who claimed they were avenging what they saw as a threat to the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in East Jerusalem a good four or five miles from where these monsters slaughtered and then butchered with 9mm handguns, knives and axes included in prayer at the time of their slaughters almost as if making a pagan sacrifice of the four holy men still wearing their Prayer Shawls and Phylacteries with Prayer Books still in hand, not that such would have been necessary as each probably knew the prayer better than most but also know that it is an even more special mitzvah to read each day’s prayers as if you are seeing the words for the first time and feel their wonderment and immerse oneself in the wonder, sincerity, passion and adoration that comes only on the first time reading such words of power and divine beauty, Rabbi Moshe Twersky, Rabbi Cary Levine, Rabbi Avraham Goldberg and Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky and then added the first police officer, a traffic policeman who was unarmed, Zidan Saif, a noble and brave Druze who was simply attempting to pull others out of harm’s way when these savages murdered once more as if their blood lust had yet to be satisfied.

 

In memory of these and all the other victims of the return to our ancient lands and to those for whom these lands will be their final refuge from the spreading hatreds, our teachers need leave the fold of their union and build one of their own fashioned by their hands with the eternal guidance from Hashem who will honor such as it honors his people and his lands. There are those amongst us who realize and know that despite the fragile nature of the existence of Israel, an existence so frail that without the aiding hands of Hashem it could not be, that this existence is still the safest of all places upon this earth for a Jew at these times. Make a teachers’ union that chooses Hashem, which chooses Israel, which recognized the special task we Jews have entered in our covenant with Hashem. Make a union that teachers can safely say as our forefathers said when receiving the Law at Mount Sinai, “We will obey and we will hear.” They can risk such faith as the teachers’ union you will form will be of such dedication to Hashem, to our land of Israel and to imparting that love in every lesson you teach. Make a new teachers’ union as the established union no longer serves as the ideal example that you wish to follow and honor. Make a union that teachers will proudly exclaim that they chose honor over acceptance. Form a union for real teachers who take moral stands and who form in their students and morale of the spirit which endows them with a moral and fulfilling education. Make a union to remember those we have lost, learn from all who remain and take the lessons from history to arm themselves for tomorrow. And lastly form a teachers’ union for your own self-worth and that will fill you with pride and thus make of you better teachers.

No matter what Israel were to do there would be millions upon millions of protesters around the world denouncing them for not having done more. This is especially true when it comes to retuning lands they gained through a defensive war where Israel was attacked by multiple Arab nations and managed somehow to turn the tide of the battles and defeat their aggressors. Israel at the end of the Yom Kippur war was closing in on Cairo in Egypt after crossing the Suez Canal, a defensive barrier many thought would prevent any further Israeli advances. Israel was instructed by the United States, Soviet Union, United Nations and likely countless other world leaders to stop and retreat back across the Suez Canal. They complied with the world’s wishes which spared Egypt losing their capital city to the Israelis which would have been an embarrassment but would not have actually signaled the end of Egypt as Israel has absolutely no desire to occupy any Arab nation despite what anybody may believe. The same war saw the Israelis also breaking past the Golan Heights and advancing towards Damascus. The same leaders of the world also demanded that Israel cease their advance and return to the Golan Heights instead of capturing the Syrian capital city. Israel returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula to the Egyptians in exchange for a cold peace that may or may not last should the Muslim Brotherhood take political control of Egypt and believe they have a military advantage which they believed would grant them that decisive victory over Israel allowing them to destroy the Jewish State once and for all. Israel also removed every Jewish citizen from Gaza, tore down the IDF military installations and even left fully operating greenhouses intact for the Arabs to use and operate in order to stimulate their economy when they left Gaza turning it all over to the Palestinian Authority claiming that this was an opportunity for the Palestinians to prove their ability for self-rule and establishing an economically viable area. Almost within days and at most weeks the greenhouses had been torn apart and the pipes and other hardware was being retooled and made into rocket launchers and rockets to fire into Israel hoping to kill anybody unfortunate enough to be where these unamiable projectiles struck and exploded. Within a relatively short period the Palestinian Authority lost the entirety of Gaza to the Hamas terrorist organization in a bloody coup. After the coup Hamas and the other terror groups, such as Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian Resistance Committees, al-Qaeda in Gaza and others, have launched well over ten thousand rockets and mortars some of which have killed civilians including elderly, children, and women. None of these lands Israel retuned was done because International Law dictated such as the truth is that any lands gained in a defensive war by International Law that land is considered forfeit to the nation against who they had transgressed. Israel could have claimed and kept the entire Sinai Peninsula including the oil fields and more than five times the area which Israel originally held before the Six Day War. The same rules would have permitted Israel annexing Gaza but they returned that and Israel not only was not given any permanent credit for the return of the land and instead received barrages of rockets and mortars.

 

Now there is an anxious world which is demanding that Israel return to the very same borders which was so vulnerable to attack that the Arab nations attacked Israel in an aggression intent on annihilation in 1948 and again in 1967 which Israel managed to repulse and push the attacking armies back into retreat. After the 1948-9 War the Israelis were allowed, as per International Law, to retain the lands they gained in beating back the attack by six Arab Armies and numerous militias and Arab forces under the auspices of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. After the 1967 Six Day War the Israelis were again attacked by Egypt and Syria in 1973 in the Yom Kippur War and after initial Arab advances the Israelis rallied and pushed both armies back almost to their respective capital cities. The fact that forcing Israel back to what have been referred to as the Auschwitz Borders would virtually guarantee yet another genocidal war by the Arabs as they once more would try to destroy Israel as they honestly believe that it is their destiny to do so and nothing will prevent their attempting once again especially if they have the advantage of Israel cut back to the almost indefensible borders. Recently Palestinian Authority officials leaked a position paper that Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat had given to Israeli Lead Negotiator Tzipi Livni giving it to the media. This document defined the demands which the Palestinian Authority had presented to the Israelis informing them that once these demands had been met the Palestinians would agree after six months to sign a peace treaty. That alone should make the deal invalid but it gets worse. The Palestinians demanded all but just under two percent of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) which they would exchange for equal land and a monetary remittance. They also demanded an area for passage between Judea and Samaria for which they claimed the northern Negev which would cut Israel in half. They also demanded they retain as their capital all of Jerusalem which was occupied by the Jordanians before June of 1967 during which time Jews were forbidden from all of their holy sites within the old city of Jerusalem and it is very likely that the same situation would soon exist should the Palestinians be granted authority over these areas of Jerusalem. The Palestinian position included demands for Israel to relinquish the Jordan Valley which is a natural barrier and makes for a formidable defensive position against any aggressions from the east. There were numerous other demands including Israel formally admitting that the lands given for the formation of the new Palestinian State was formerly “occupied” and returned, the lands must be cleared of every Jew and no Jew is to be permitted to transgress onto these lands which makes the Jewish holy sites in Hevron and almost countless other places throughout Judea and Samaria beyond reach and the Palestinians also claimed sole right to the aquifer which originates in Judea and Samaria and flows downhill into Israel and is the primary, almost sole, source of water for Israel. Yet all of these pale in comparison to their final demand which was for the admission into Israel proper as citizens of five million Arab refugees and their descendants, the vast majority are offspring of the original claimants and would not be considered to be refugees in any other refugee situation throughout the world and history but an exception requiring a new refugee agency, UNRWA, to be formed solely to see to the rights, care and complaints of these so-called refugees. The original number of refugees numbered an estimated 750,000 which was slightly less than the near one million Jewish refugees evicted from countless Arab nations within the first decade of Israel’s existence who were dispossessed of all wealth, properties, businesses, bank accounts, jewelry and virtually anything of measurable value. The best way to present the aim to be the result of Israel meeting the demands presented by the Palestinian negotiators is that Israel would cease to exist as a Jewish State and with the addition of Palestine as a new Arab State and the new Arab State of Israel there would be added a twenty-second and twenty-third Arab States and a second and third Palestinian Arab States. The truth has been revealed that the only peace that the Palestinians will sign with Israel is one where the Israel that exists now and has existed for just about sixty-five years would be eclipsed and probably soon renamed as it would be overwhelmed by the influx of five million Arabs who would vote the Jewish State completely out of existence. They have admitted blatantly that only the death of the Jewish State is acceptable and any agreement which allows Israel to remain as the only Jewish State is unacceptable. Yet there is something strange about all of this and that is that despite such evidence when the Palestinian walk out of the peace talks and claim that Israel refused to meet their terms, the very terms they leaked to the press, the world will line up to demand that the United Nations Security Council force that very same solution upon Israel no matter what the end result. The scariest thing is there is the possibility that this will be the result as soon as the Palestinians make their grand exit screaming and pounding their fists into the air indignant that anybody dared not bend their knee and cave to their every whim. The real question is does the world actually know what they intend to sow?
