The Unbelievable is Upon the United States

To the Jews of Europe, the United States was the glowing promise of financial opportunity, equality, religious freedom and personal safety. America was their future and many Jews gave up everything they knew, sold the vast majority of their belongings and did whatever else was required in order to reach this land which appeared to them to be their promised land. This is what the United States was in their minds, the promise of everything that Europe was not. America was largely a land which offered a lack of anti-Semitism. That was their vision for which they made their way across the Atlantic Ocean to seek out this land of promise. For close to a century the Jews lived with little fear of persecution as they had faced periodically in the Old Country. The American Jews believed they had found the land where their future would continue filled of acceptance and complete freedom from the threats of anti-Semitism within their communities and the regions in which they settled in larger numbers. These were largely the major cities where the Jews began by starting family businesses with some becoming bedrocks of economic viability. Jewish communities flourished and they envisioned this would continue on into the future without any end in sight. This view is one which many American Jews refuse to admit may be coming to an end. They simply ignore the rising anti-Semitism which has begun to rise beyond its normal home of the extreme right and left of the political spectrum and into the mainstream. This trending is represented by the graph covering anti-Semitic acts from 2008 through 2017 below.

 

Anti-Semitic Acts from 2008 through 2017

 

The rise of the ugly hatred of anti-Semitism has outstripped that of every and any other minority in the United States including the overly-hyped Islamophobia. We believe that the term anti-Semitism has been rejected to such an extent that despite its rapid rise, the political community has decided that some anti-Semitism needs to be understood as sometimes coming from a righteous indignation for which the Jews are largely to blame themselves. This has been the stance by the media whenever such acts are committed by other minorities and only hold those they can trace their imaginary line to President Trump’s actions and speeches. This has been made most evident by the refusal of the Democrat leadership in the House of Representatives to denounce the anti-Semitic antics of a number of their newly elected members. Still, these same Democrat leaders are amongst the first to jump and blame any anti-Semitic act committed by the “alt-right” to President Trump. This is an erroneous blaming of a man who observes Shabbat when visiting his daughter and her husband and his grandchildren, whose Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago Country Club was the first to allow minorities including Blacks and Jews to become members despite protests of the other clubs in the area, has recognized Israeli rightful possession of the Golan Heights and taken numerous other pro-Israel decisions and actions and has never uttered an anti-Semitic slur. These accusations are solely political as all forms and acts of anti-Semitism have become as the media attempts to blame every anti-Semitic act possible on the President while ignoring any which are not attributable to President Trump.

 

Anti-Semitic Acts by State for 2018

 

As reported here, even in the Jewish centers in and around New York City, anti-Semitism has become rampant. They recount the simple truth of acts committed over the last week in August as noted below.

In the last week of August alone we witnessed three vicious attacks on Jews.
On August 27th, 63-year old Abraham Gopin was brutally attacked with a paving stone while exercising in Lincoln Terrace Park in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. The suspect yelled an anti-Semitic slur before blindsiding his victim.
On August 29th, an assailant threw rocks at a Jewish man while the victim was in his truck.
On August 31st, an assailant hit a Jewish man with a belt outside a synagogue.

The acts of anti-Semitism committed in the Crown Heights neighborhood and other nearby Jewish communities have been attacked largely by other minorities in hit and flee type scenarios. These attacks have been attributed to the fact that the Orthodox Jews in these areas wear clothes making their religious affiliations obvious when the media mentions these at all. There has been no additional effort to end these attacks as compared to the excuses and dismissals of these acts as a minor nuisance. Yet, in the same area should a single member of the Islamic faith report that some passerby looked at them sideways, the decrying the horrific problem of Islamophobia must be taken seriously and actions taken to eradicate this menace. Anti-Semitism simply draws excuses and yawns taking minimal if any notice making every attempt to ignore or at least diminish such acts as of no real concern.

 

Many simply claim that anti-Semitism is an old problem which has been addressed and is not something which requires attention in this modern age. There are so many new forms of perceived hatred which require all of our attentions first before we worry about the boogieman of anti-Semitism as it is an old grievance which has already been eradicated except for a few outlier cases. This is only true if one ignores the majority of such instances which is easily done if the problem is blamed on those Jews who dress in a peculiar manner. Perhaps the time has come to bring forth a new terminology for anti-Semitism, a name which has apparently outlived its usefulness and has become an annoyance to be ignored. We are about to steal an idea which has circulated and we feel it need go mainstream. The concept is instead of anti-Semitism, we should bring attention to this scourge as “Judeophobia” and see if with this moniker hatred of Jews can be brought into the central focus it deserves. This is when Jews are largely being singled out for attack to such proportions that they outnumber all other forms of religious hatred combined as told by the graph below. What is more troubling is that the number of Judeophobic events since 2015 have risen with a troubling rate while other forms of religious centric crimes have remained level or decreased making the problem becoming far worse.

 

Religious Hate Crimes from 1992 through 2015

 

The thought that the United States would remain forever the perfect land was an attitude very prevalent since the later parts of the last century but are now beginning to fray at the edges. The problems which were considered next to impossible are coming true as the American society becomes more fractured. As had been the fear for Jews across much of the world, excepting America, are now coming to America. But this hatred of the Jews will soon spread to include Christians and who knows who else along the way. Will the United States remain a promised land for Jews? Should things continue as the present trends indicate, then the Jews welcome will soon be worn out and be faced with three choices, find a more hospitable place including their relocating to Israel, remain in their communities taking a fortress attitude which these communities become Jewish ghettos, or disbelieve it could happen here much as the German Jews had their disbelief that Germany, the leading nation in so many educational and cultural measures and the Nazis could never take over the country. It is becoming a believable proposition that the Jews time in the United States being accepted and seen as a group which added to the culture and other interests of the society to becoming the reason for blame for every downturn or catastrophe. With time they will be blamed universally for their own condition as violence and other acts of discrimination will become commonplace and acceptable in America. Soon behind such a series of events will be the persecution of Christians. These are the signs that the America many of us have known is rapidly self-destructing. Has the time come for America to fall as has every nation throughout history? That remains to be seen, but the signs are not promising. America will remain as a nation but it will not resemble anything we remember or have ever actually expected. It will be a sad series of events as America held such promise, and it always hurts the most when the things you had hung your hat upon no longer continue and begin to deconstruct. Perhaps the United States will recover from their current threat of decline, but that will be told over time. One thing we know from history is, as go a nation’s Jews, so goes that nation. This is a choice Americans will be required to make, either address and be rid of Judeophobia or face the promise of their coming decline.

Palestinian-EU War on Israel

 

How long the European Union (EU) will continue financing the Arab Palestinian projects remains to be seen. One can only assume that they are in this to the very end. We have spoken about the illegal Arab settlements before and the EU-Arab ventures, which are nothing short of land theft of Israeli land and informal declarations of war, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. The European Union in concert with numerous NGO’s, largely supported by European countries, and with direct monies from several European nations and often the United Nations, the Arab Palestinians have invaded Area C and thus destroyed the last vestige remaining of the Oslo Accords. The Oslo Accords divided the formerly illegally held lands by Jordan and liberated by Israel in the Six Day War into three partitions, Area A, Area B and Area C. These were defined as follows, Area A was under Arab Palestinian political and security control, Area B was under Arab Palestinian political control and mutual Arab Palestinian and Israeli security control and Area C under Israeli political and security control. Israeli forces and people were forbidden entry into Area A without first receiving Arab Palestinian permission while Arab Palestinians and efforts on their behalf were forbidden from Area C without first receiving Israeli permission. Mahmoud Abbas invited Israeli security forces, specifically their intelligence operations, into Area A in order for them to identify and neutralize Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist forces who were a threat to the future continued rule by Mahmoud Abbas. This arrangement allowed for Mahmoud Abbas to be rid of those pesky little things such as another Hamas coup except in his neighborhood and not Gaza. But just because Mahmoud Abbas permits Israeli intelligence to operate in conjunction with the Palestinian Protective Force within Area A, that does not keep Mahmoud Abbas and especially the European Union from encroaching upon Area C which is legal Israeli lands and thus institutes, technically, an act of war, an invasion of Israel.

 

Illegal European Union Structures in Area C Encroaching Upon Israeli Sovereign Lands

Encroaching Upon Israeli Sovereign Lands

 

There are a pair of other problems, one internal to Israel and the other international in its nature where large roles are played by the Europeans, both its Union and numerous of her independent nations, as well as the rest of the world centered often in the United Nations General Assembly where any and every condemnation of Israel is guaranteed overwhelming passage. We will get past the internal Israeli problem and then proceed to the more problematic and threatening problem posed by the Arab Palestinian intentions going forward with apparent complete and total backing the entire way by the European Union. The Israeli problem is caused by the severe and crippling timidity displayed by her political leaders who have reason to display such an overly cautious approach. The reasons behind their inactions start with a Supreme Court which acts as if it were enforcing the international efforts to destroy Israel than it does as the Supreme Court of the nation of Israel. The Supreme Court in Israel has consisted of not just left-leaning justices, but justices whose politics are so far left as to become an absolute threat to the existence of the State of Israel. The Israeli Supreme Court has often demanded the destruction of entire Jewish neighborhoods on the claim presented by a leftist NGO which had no deed, no Arab owner in court, no proof whatsoever beyond the word of the representatives of an anti-Israel NGO. The same Supreme Court would pressure the politicians forcing the ordered destruction of Jewish homes sometimes before the residents have time to remove their belongings which are destroyed with the house. The Israeli Supreme Court all but refuses to order the destruction of illegal Arab structures, both those built by Arabs, Bedouins and others and those built under the auspices of the European Union. Even when they finally do order the destruction of an illegal Arab house or groups of homes, the politicians show their true timidity and order the case reconsidered or simply hem and haw while not complying with the orders of the Supreme Court and when one adds in the General Staff of the IDF who are equal culprits in this dancing around but never touching any Arab Palestinian structures all in fear of being cast as the horrible meanie who committed an act of such offence against the world’s darlings. The perfect example of the paralysis rampant in the entire Israeli government is perfectly on display when it comes to the illegal Arab and Bedouin outpost Khan al-Ahmar. The Supreme Court ruled it to be destroyed over twenty years ago and between postponements by the Prime Minister or other Ministers or the reluctance of the IDF to actually act if even a puppy-dog would stand in defiance, has left this illegal and abandoned, except when the IDF comes to actually destroy it, outpost which is unsupported by any and all utilities and unlivable in our modern world, standing continued to the time of this writing. All too often, Israel stands as the greatest threat against Israel, and this almost always is the result of being irresolute and insecure always worrying what the rest of the world will think and say.

 

The interesting thing is the coming and inevitable result of the current European Union building of Arab Palestinian structures, and they have signs printed by the European Union replete with their little circle of stars emblem stating these structures are the property of the European Union and the Palestinian Authority and Arab Palestinians, will lead to a critical point where war will become the sole means to resolve the predicament. We can predict the exact scenario under which such a conflict will be instigated. The world will lay almost the entirety of the blame on the far-right-wing government and specifically the Israeli Prime Minister, referred to as being of the right-wing politically, but also he will be described as a Zionist who, even worse, is a religious man who believes the Bible and is in charge of a religious Zionist right-wing fascist obsessive government which some will go the additional step claiming the Prime Minister envisions establishing a Greater Israel by the Jews carrying this war to its ultimate intended resolution. Any time Israel is forced to defend herself, the reaction is as if Israel massed troops on her borders with her neighbors, broadcast speeches by the Prime Minister threatening to drive the Arabs into Arabia, and united with other nations in the region which share that view, oh, wait, there are no such nations though these same nations uniting to destroy Israel had already occurred three times in history, May of 1948, June of 1967 and October of 1973, all of which failed fortunately. In each of these wars, Israel was either physically attacked by her neighbors or a casus belli for war was committed such as blocking of international seaways to Israeli shipping, more specifically the Straight of Tiran in the Red Sea. Still, the world labels all of these conflicts with names which appear to make the belligerent part Israel and not her Arab neighbors who are sworn to her destruction. But how can building a few structures in Area C lead to a wider war?

 

The European Union, in concert with European governances, began the building of ‘facts on the ground’ building in Area B which, as mentioned above, was partially controlled by the Palestinian Authority with security being the responsibility of them with Israel providing security and law enforcement. These structures were built without the agreement of Israeli authorities. Most of Area B is now all but completely controlled by the Palestinian Authority with Israel only permitted legal control as it serves to protect the Palestinian Authority from being overthrown as they were in Gaza, much the same as Area A is ruled unofficially. With the predominance of the Arab Palestinians well established now in Area B, the European Union and its facilitators have turned their efforts to Area C, the region belonging to Israel according to the Oslo Accords. These are the same Oslo Accords which these entities use to berate Israel for building Israeli communities in Area C despite their condoning Israeli efforts solely in the region defined as Area C. Much of the efforts by the European Union and friends has been designed to surround Eastern Jerusalem with Arab structures as well as cutting off the roadways upon which the Jewish communities require to have access to the remainder of Israel. The tactics being employed have but one goal in mind, driving the Jews and other Israelis from Eastern Jerusalem and the entirety of the contested lands. We really hate the term contested lands because according to all international law, which has little if anything in common with the views of much of the world towards these regions, all belong completely and totally to Israel. International Law, which is dependent upon such treaties and compacts as the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, the agreements under the auspices of the League of Nations, the Treaty of Sèvres and other post World War I compacts of international law, all define the easternmost border for Israel with Jordan as the Jordan River (see map below). The Golan Heights also belong to Israel as United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 passed in response to the Six Day War stated two conditions placed upon Israel and her neighbors. The first was that Israel had to return land, not the land, all the land or any other reference demanding Israel return to the pre-June 1967 borders. This document also listed that Israel is entitled to defendable borders. Israel returning the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt fulfilled the land return and did so in spades. The remaining lands actually being debated are the exact lands which provide Israel with defendable borders, the Golan Heights with Syria (what remains of Syria) and the Jordan River with the Jordan River Valley providing one of the most formidable and defendable pieces of land on the planet. This valley could be referred to as the Israel Grand Canyon between her and the Arab world to her east. But the world, except for Donald Trump as far as we know, is hard pressed to permit Israel the retention of lands defined by international law as belonging to Israel and instead is insisting that Israel be forced back to the starting-point for the Six Day War, a prescription for another war if ever there existed such.

 

A map of Israel should any of the nations of the world actually be honest and truly be seeking peace which can only be attained should Israel have the most defensive borders imaginable.

So, why are so many of the European nations in concert with the European Union and United Nations General Assembly along with numerous NGOs and United Nations Agencies so insistent that Israel be forced back to what Abba Eban referred to as the Auschwitz Borders and in denying Israel her proper and agreed upon borders according to many numerous agreements reached after World War I, and that is the truth, World War I and not having anything to do with World War II and the Holocaust? Much of the impetus behind these efforts is to push Israel back to where her middle would be a mere nine to fifteen miles wide making it all but impossible for Israel to prevent a thrust at this vulnerable midsection cutting Israel in half and dividing her forces making their coordination nearly impossible. The other reason is geography and preventing Israel from having her given border where the Jordan River Valley would be her natural border preventing invasion. The Jordan River boundary and Golan Heights provide exactly such protection against invasions from the east as is made obvious by the two images below. The strange fact is that these efforts are far from the first efforts to deny Israel her promised lands. Much of the effort to prevent Israel from her rightful borders began almost at the outset of the establishment of Israel after World War I. The main thrust preventing the Jewish State was initially committed by the British in cooperation with the Arab League whereby they continuously denied Jews entry to the lands and encouraged and even forced Arabs to relocate into what would become Israel preventing the Jews from ever attaining a majority. This would have worked if the Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini had not called for the Arabs to leave Israel such that the invading seven Arab armies on May 15, 1948, could simply wash across the region murdering every person they found as none would be Arab or Muslim. This led to the initial six to seven hundred thousand Arab refugees as when the Arabs failed to destroy Israel, they trapped the Arabs, who obeyed the Mufti’s call, into refugee camps where they and their children on to the fourth generation and counting have been confined ever since breading them on their eventual return to their homes and the slaughter of the Jews upon whose wealth they would be allowed to feed. UNRWA reinforces this and numerous anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel propaganda in their schools, across their media and further instilled by propaganda posters and murals placed around the camps. We wish to interject one point virtually forgotten by the world, namely, there were over eight-hundred-thousand Jews forced from their homes across the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) world which is controlled by Arab and Muslim leadership.

 

Jordan Valley and Golan Heights Provide Obviously Defensible Borders of Israel

Jordan Valley and Golan Heights Provide Obviously Defensible Borders of Israel

 

These efforts in Area C by the European Union and European nations often gains support from the United Nations and its various agencies. UNESCO has declared that all of Jerusalem is an Arab holy site and has no religious or other connection to the Jews. Such a statement predicates on history starting in any region immediately after Arab and Muslim forces conquer that region. This is a very handy way the Arab and much of the Muslim world define history. The only history which accounts for a region is that written by the Arab or Muslim forces and historians. Such a view discounts the history contained in the Bible, negates all of Christianity in the MENA region and not just Judaism. This version of history is the result of the Supersessionism practiced initially by Christians to permit their replacing Judaism as the chosen people’s religion and then practiced by the Islamic conquerors of the MENA region and into Spain, Portugal and on into Southeastern Europe with one added point, that Muhammad would be the final prophet of Allah. Jewish prophesy lasted during the earliest periods through Kings Saul, David and Solomon before coming to a close. Those were the prophets of Hashem according to the Old Testament. The Quran decided that tens of centuries later there would be another prophet, this time from Allah. The videos below are of two sessions of the United Nations Human Rights Council featuring the address by the representative of United Nations Watch, Hillel Neuer, one year apart concerning the targeting of Israel and only Israel by the commission.

 

 

 

 

Perhaps it is time to reach the inevitable conclusion of where the European Union building program will end. It did not end where they might have had legal rights to aid in Arab construction of Area B and instead continued right on into Area C impinging on Israeli lands as defined in the Oslo Accords. This is the same Oslo Accords which are constantly used to define as the sole solution to the Arab-Israeli (Jewish) problem as being the ‘Two State Solution’ ignoring that this has already been enacted, Jordan was the Arab State and Israel the Jewish State. The problem with that solution, as far as these efforts prove, is that it included the Jewish State, the one nation in the world which has its borders ignored and existence continuously threatened. When the same documents define the prevention against Arab building reserving areas for Israeli use, which would include Jews, Arab, Bedouins, Druze and all Israelis without regard to any restrictions, suddenly the Oslo Accords do not prevent expanding constructions as long as they are Arab. When a Jew would add a simple patio to their backyard, some NGO would go to the Israeli Supreme Court to get such an expansion of Jewish construction destroyed and even attempt to have the house destroyed as additional punishment for crossing the edicts in the Oslo Accords. Meanwhile, the European Union is establishing these Arab structures which until recently were not provided with utilities or roads, but the European Union has wizened up and now paves roads and attempts to provide at least some basic utilities. The Palestinian Authority has forced some of their citizens to relocate into the homes being built by the European Union even when they lack some or even all utilities. This is done so they can prevent the destruction of these facilities as they know their enemy, Israel, is actually compassionate and would try not to destroy homes of innocents with no ties to terrorism. The question becomes, what will happen once they have established complete hegemony of Area C?

 

If the past is any reference to future actions, then it is obvious what will ensue. The European Union and its supporting states will recognize Palestine with its capital in Eastern Jerusalem but without denoting its border with Israel. This is because the European Union and far too many others recognize the Palestinian Arab claim to all of Israel and only begrudgingly recognize Israel if at all. Slowly but inexorably, the European Union would begin to build outside the Green Line but within the Security Barrier. With time, the European Union building would require the dismantling of the Security Barrier anywhere it is beyond the Green Line. This would lead to the continued demolition of the Security Barrier section by section. In its place would be further construction which would slowly encroach upon what is presumably universally recognized Israel proper. This building process would continue reaching further and further into Israel likely headed in two directions, one across the Negev towards Gaza and the other into the Galilee taking the rich farmlands which lie there. This would start slowly taking baby steps so as not to alarm the majority of Israelis living in the larger cities and thus unaffected. With time the lack of protest beyond that of formal complaints by the Israeli government and Prime Minister, two items one is free to ignore as far as the United Nations is concerned and supported by dozens if not hundreds of NGOs, the rate of illegal land acquisition would start to increase to the point where it would become a main point of the religious-Zionist political wing. This would be an issue which once it became obvious that the object was the end of Israel which would gain traction in the Israeli populous. The problem is that even should the Supreme Court, even International Courts, decide to address the European Union and Palestinian Authority land theft, the destruction of a single building would result in such a tumult on the world stage that it would be slowed to the point of ineffectiveness against what would by then be rampant European Union and Palestinian Authority construction.

 

That leads to the final question, how could Israel prevent the complete erasure of her as a nation facing such a formidable threat? The unfortunate answer is not very appetizing nor a solution one could easily order. Still, eventually, the Israeli Prime Minister and his Security Cabinet would have their hand forced and the European Union would be informed that should their activities continue, they would be prevented and pealed back by active interventions conducted by the IDF and other enforcement agencies of the Israeli government. There might even be sufficient indignation throughout much of the population that a complete claiming of the rightful borders might be demanded by the voting populace at the next election. This would include either forcing all the Arabs across the Jordan River or over the Golan Heights, their choice between Jordan or Syria, and all the lands up to the Jordan River and half way across being returned to its rightful owner, Israel. The Jordan River was the eastern border for the State of Israel at dawn of May 15, 1948 until more than six Arab armies (Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen) captured regions which belonged rightfully to the Jewish State. These were Gaza illegally occupied by Egypt, Judea and Samaria (West Bank) occupied by Jordan and the western face of the Golan Heights illegally occupied by Syria. Israel liberated these lands while also gaining the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula during the Six Day War. Should the European Union building continue apace and extend, as it appears they will actually plan to do, into Israel proper and begin to uproot Israelis from their lands and residences, the only solution would be to threaten the European Union and Palestinian Authority that they are placing themselves in danger of facing an active front which could easily turn into warfare. We expect that neither the European Union nor Palestinian Authority will take the cautionary message and will continue to press their illegal land acquisition until forcibly prevented from continuing. Pressing things too far until they become tantamount to an invasion and require being treated as such. Where it might be considered insane for Israel to threaten taking on the entirety of the European Union, one need remember that the European Union is largely a trade union which also sets currency rates and not a military outfit completely dependent upon voluntary provisional troops from its member states. The European Union has never declared war, never fought a war and never had war declared against it. The European Union is completely dependent upon NATO and the decisions made by NATO for their protection and NATO is largely the United States. This might not be in the favor of Israel in the not too distant future as half the American populace are supportive of a party which does not favor Israel. Such a conflict, should the European Union attempt to garner allies to assist their erasure of Israel, would most surely escalate and, at what point it might be halted by the relatively sane individuals left in the world being unknown, very well lead to another devastating world at war where all the weapons of mankind would assuredly be launched. This would be a war of truly beyond Biblical proportions and the end results are described in both the New Testament and Old Testament and even in the Quran, Viking legends, Indian Hindu texts and possibly in Buddhist texts and beyond. Even the Native American tribes included such scenarios in their records as have virtually all races, religions and other groups universally. One might wisely take such texts as describing a series of recently passed events or resulting from the writings and traditions handed down through the ages referring to these events where an advanced society tore itself asunder with weapons and needless acrimony resulting in a reset of humankind. Some believe such has happened repeatedly in human history and we would hope we might skip the destroy the world period in our future, but that is dependent upon everyone realizing what could result from another world at war eating its technology and infrastructure apart to the point that merely a few hundred thousand humans survive the final battle worldwide. Maybe, but no one can be completely sure what will come, but why tempt fate directly when simply living up to your word as recorded in historic documents adequately define, like the Jordan River being the eastern border of Israel. Would that be so difficult? We know the answer for the European Union and so many who back them is a resounding, of course it is difficult, as doing so provides the Jews with a nation, and as we all know, the Jews are the world’s conscience and must be destroyed. Then we all can live unbothered by them.

Israel Often Asking the Wrong Questions

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:58 AM

For centuries the Jews have, more often than not, been asking the wrong questions. While it was pertinent during their exile and ordeal of slavery within Ancient Egypt, their enslavement was not an active part of the problem until the very end. The family of Israel should have been asking whether or not they had accomplished what was necessary for ending the exile. It is often told that the Jewish People, the family of Abraham, was enslaved in Egypt for the sin of the brother’s selling, while almost murdering, their brother Joseph. There was another reason for their exile, for their numbers to increase far from the view of leaders who would become nervous about the growing size of the Jewish People. Towards the end, the Pharaoh did become nervous and ordered that the first-born male of every household be killed. The Jews still rose up and left after the Ten Plagues were rendered upon Egypt. They perceived that the reason why Pharaoh was pursuing them was to slaughter most and place the others back in bondage and pressed against the sea they believed their plight to be hopeless. They had been placed in such peril simply to prove the power and dominion of Hashem as he divided the waters and they escaped while the waters were closed upon the Egyptian army killing the vast majority. Even after the miracle of dividing the waters and seeing the presence of Hashem upon the mountain during the giving of Torah, the Jewish People were not capable of the task and was required to be replaced by the next generation born free of slavery which took, unsurprisingly, forty years in the wilderness to build the new generation and train them for the struggles ahead. Now we will try and explain the more modern situations and see of we can find the more suitable questions which should have been asked.

 

When addressing the Gaza situation, we ask if there are more reasons to be rid of Hamas than there are to keep them ruling Gaza. There is the fear that should Israel decapitate the Gaza leadership that an even worse group very likely directed from Iran would replace the current leaders. There is also the fear that Islamic Jihad, a direct arm of Iran, would rise and take control of Gaza permitting Iran to directly control another border of Israel. Then some claim that Israel could simply remove the terrorists and its infrastructure and allow the Gazans to elect new and hopefully better leaders. The Gazans elected Hamas last time, a step in the wrong direction voting out those who simply desired to destroy Israel replacing them with a group which desires to murder every Jews on the planet. The odds are that were the Gazans provided with an opportunity to elect their own government with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all other terrorist structures removed, somehow they would find somebody to continue the attacks upon Israel. Additionally, it is pointed out that once pushed into the Sinai Peninsula, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and any new friends and Iranian allied forces would be able to launch attacks from within Egypt. This could present the opportunity for Israel and Egypt to solve our mutual problem of terror groups training and designing attacks within the rough terrain of the Sinai Peninsula. Further, should Egypt elect somebody who preferred a more belligerent stance than the present position of their current government led by President Sisi, this would permit those groups to operate with the assistance, or at a minimum, no hindrance from the Egyptian government. The one item which Israel can be assured about, Egypt would rather cooperate behind the scenes with Israel than have to face Iran alone, which is pretty much the choice Egypt would need face. This presents a problem for Egypt as they are one of the nations high on the Iranian list which they require conquest. The other two are Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The map below depicts the closest cities and communities along with their relative size.

 

Gaza Communities and Relative Sizes

Gaza Communities and Relative Sizes

 

What should be asked is why leave anything of Gaza. Why not have the IDF, backed by airpower, simply push the people, everyone, into the Sinai Peninsula? This would be called going Biblical on those who are attempting to destroy you and your way of life. There is little surprise over the fact that the terror groups in Gaza are fully supported by the people of Gaza. The two are willing compliments to one another. There is no doubt as to the enmity felt by the average Gazan towards Israel which has been proven time and again in polls and other means which depicts that over 80% of Gazans fully back their government in the desire to eliminate Israel and slaughter every Jew found there. As time passes, much the same could be stated about the Arabs residing under the Palestinian Authority (PA). Polls have shown that there is a great amount of support for Hamas in the PA regions, one which rivals Gaza. What is surprising is that there are those within the PA ruled regions who would prefer to be ruled over by Israel even if this meant that they would not be permitted to vote in national elections and only permitted the vote in local elections. Should Israel ever push all Gazans into the Sinai Peninsula, this should be performed in conjunction with Egypt such that they too would be permitted to arrest those from Gaza whom they believe would incite against their rule. Still, a recent poll of the Israeli reaction to the response to the rockets fired into Israel where one struck a house injuring seven, where the people of Israel overwhelmingly believed that the response was weak and lacked sufficient will to bring this recent rising level of terrorist attacks to an abrupt end. The Palestinians are playing a very dangerous game of baiting a nation which has shown great control but the people are getting very close to demanding that the Biblical solution of cleansing the lands be applied to the Palestinian Arabs, or at the very least, those in Gaza.

 

Regarding Europe we ask what can we do to appease them and reduce their apparent hatreds. Israel often treats the difficulties with Europe as a misunderstanding rather than a confrontational problem. Israel and the Israelis need to understand that many of the power elite within Europe look upon Israel as the cause of Arab unrest. It is their contention that were Israel to be removed, then relations between the Europeans and the Arab Islamic World would improve drastically. The other problem is that the Europeans see Israel as endangering their lucrative trade with Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Gulf States which deals with oil in one direction and manufactured goods in the other. Many European leaders were enamored of President Barack Obama feeling that he was a kindred spirit. They particularly approved completely his craven lack of resolve to end the Iranian nuclear program and to merely kick that can down the road and in the meantime provide the leadership of Iran with literally pellets of hundred dollar bills, if not thousands. To the Europeans, this was to their favor as it provided Tehran with hundreds of millions if not billions or tens of billions which the Europeans expected to grab the lion’s share of the cash in exchange for goods from Europe. The JCPOA to the Europeans was simply an invitation to them to make serious money and conduct profitable trade while Iran saw it as an open door through which they could attain the last items on their nuclear shopping list. Israel does not need to acquiesce and appease the Europeans or even gain their approval. Israel simply needs trade with Europe when it is advantageous and walk away totally ignoring them when it is not favorable for Israel. As far as adapting Israeli policies in order to make them pleasing to European sensitivities, this must be terminated immediately as it is not a healthy endeavor. What we should ask is where do we need to turn so we can dismiss Europe and her old, embedded hatreds.

 

Regarding most relations we ask what must we sacrifice to retain relations. That is a defeatist attitude and one taken by a weak adversary in the hopes that they will receive sympathy. It is a plaintiff attitude, and not one from a nation with any pride or certainty in their actions. Israel actually could very well find themselves manufacturing everything they require within her borders making trade a luxury instead of a necessity. Israel need read the tealeaves, or at least the polls in Europe, all of which depict a continent becoming ever more steeped in anti-Semitism and displaying it largely through hatred of and working for the destruction of Israel. Israel gets many items such as motor vehicles, appliances and countless other items which are manufactured in Europe. The European Union and member nations are less than a decade away from completely turning against Israel and fully backing the Arabs in their struggle to eradicate Israel from the map. What need be asked is how can Israel become self-sufficient such that we can exist alone if need be and realize that it is Israel which they all depend and not us depend upon them.

 

With Hezballah to our north perched in Lebanon, we ask how can we refrain them from attacking us. What we need ask is why do we tolerate over one-hundred-fifty-thousand missiles and rockets targeting our people and how long would it take to completely erase all presence of the Iranian menace on our northern border. This is a question of national survival. Would Israel survive if a mere ten percent of these rockets were launched before the Israeli response silenced their launching? That would mean the fifteen-thousand rockets and missiles (mostly unguided rockets) launched within ten to fifteen minutes. Of these probably twenty percent, or three-thousand, are guided missiles and they are made up of the largest warheads with sufficient range to reach anywhere in Israel. Allow us to paint a picture of the scenario. The twelve-thousand unguided rockets would have warheads sufficient to destroy a vehicle and cause sizable damage to a home. The Iron Dome would likely intercept numbers of these rockets heading for civilian areas and the ones which were permitted to land in open areas would simply make quite a bit of noise. Numerous of these rockets would get past the Iron Dome defenses and strike buildings where people reside causing some widespread panic. Now to address the three-thousand larger guided missiles. These most likely have Iranian provided guidance systems which are accurate, from our latest information, to within ten meters and very often within three to five meters. Trust us when we explain with a warhead which is capable of killing people up to one hundred meters depending on walls and plant growth and whether the shell is set to penetrate delaying exploding until anywhere from three seconds to thirty seconds before detonation, explode on impact or explode while overhead and heading towards its intended target. These would be aimed at the nuclear power stations, the tallest buildings which also hold the most offices and thus people. What Israel need determine is she and her people willing to live with this threat, this virtual declaration of war just sitting in preparation for the day that Iranian leaders awaken feeling just somewhat ill-at-ease, so they give the order to let loose the rockets and missiles, all of them. Fortunately, some of the rockets require loading as well as fueling making it impossible for Hezballah to launch all the rockets simultaneously. There is one target which we know will be targeted, the Dimona Nuclear Reactor as well as the nuclear electrical generation plants. Their aim is to make as much area unlivable for humans such that they can declare they drove the Jews from the lands and ended the Zionist threat which was pervasive throughout Israel and now they have made the area uninhabitable. This is one of the ways the Arabs are proving that they truly love the land as their intent is to so utterly destroy the region that nothing remains alive and merely robotic machines are permitted within a certain radius of the main cities of about twenty kilometers. Perhaps this is the particular threat which requires an immediate intervention by Israel removing of most of the threat. Such a Sword of Damocles hanging over one’s head is totally unacceptable. Perhaps we could demand that these rockets and missiles be aimed at targets further from Israel or were decommissioned, but Israelis in the north and south should not be expected to live with a constant threat of rockets raining down upon them.

 

Turning to Iran and we see what may be the greatest threat to peace throughout the Middle East, both currently and in the foreseeable future. Iran is largely responsible for the violence plaguing Iraq, is adding to the conflict in Syria, is responsible for the discord in Lebanon (as well as the flight of the Lebanese Christians), has armed the Houthis who are conquering Yemen with assistance from the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and is behind some of the violence emanating from Gaza as well as directly responsible for the threats of violence and isolated incidents of violence along the Golan Heights. Iran has established their desired Shiite Crescent reaching from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea (see map below). Iran also now controls in addition to the Strait of Hormuz also control the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait thus they control a choke point through which over half of the Middle Eastern oil travels in tankers and also the southern exit to the Red Sea and thus closing off Israel from the Asian sea routes blocking the port of Eilat as they control the southern exit from the Red Sea and thus control the Suez Canal. Iran is potentially capable of cutting off all oil from Europe other than what can be provided by Russia. Iran has stated they intend to have hegemonic power in the Middle East while at the same time accusing Israel of hegemonic power. Iran has also stated their intent to remove Israel from the map of the world and that they will also bring down the Great Satan (United States) after they defeat the little Satan (Israel). The Supreme Leader as well as their current President has both been broadcast as well as filmed joining in on the Friday afternoon few hours of hate where crowds gather at selected locations with one in Tehran where they chant for hours Death to America, Death to Israel. Iran has stated that they plan to conquer or otherwise take the Saudi Arabian oil fields as well as the Kuwaiti oil fields, and they intend to conquer the Red Sea region along Saudi Arabia including the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina and gain control of the heart of Islam. Iran intends to make Shia Islam dominant with themselves as the unrivaled rulers. What we need ask is who is willing immediately to go and free the Iranian people from their nightmare and bring their dreams of world conquest to an early termination. There are a great number of Iranians who would very much love to see this hegemonic religious cult destroyed and them permitted to have a real democratic state and not any form of Theocracy.

In reference to the United Nations, we ask how we can appease their insatiable appetite for condemnation of Israel. We wonder what acts of contrition we could take which would bring their constant year in and year out, month in and month out in many of their agencies, condemnations of Israel to an end. Israelis have grown mostly numb to the inanities and insanities performed regularly at the United Nations. Those who attempt to defend Israel are ruled out of order after being shouted down repeatedly and then have their microphone shut off and nothing further translated for the rest of the hall to hear. When any pro Israel individual or Israeli representative stands to speak before the General Assembly or the Security Council, the members disappear from the room leaving a hall filled with empty seats. Their condemnations of Israel are performed as a ritual with such agencies as the Human Rights Council having an actual order to condemn Israel before even hearing any new business. Eventually the members of the United Nations will evict Israel and then proclaim Israel a non-country striping her of her statehood as best they are able. This is in direct contradiction to the United Nations Charter Article 80 where they are sworn to uphold the Mandate System. Israel need discuss and ask themselves and discuss this in the Knesset where Israel can ask themselves do we even bother remaining in such a hateful and dysfunctional institution. Are their any advantages in staying in the United Nations when one has to realize that Israel is one of the few nations to never have been permitted to sit on the Security Council or chair any committee. Israel need realize that there is little need for her to remain in an institution which regularly slaps her across the face while never permitting her the same privileges provided every other member.

 

Finally concerning the world we ask what can we do to change the growing anti-Semitism we see around us. What we need ask is how can we make the Jewish presence so strong that others will fear spiting on us full of disrespect for Israel and through Israel the Jews. Were we to declare our restoration of our promised borders and applied Israeli law to the lands west of the Jordan River, such a bold move would awaken many people. We should or could then apply the three choices to the Arabs and other non-Jews residing within the finally realized promised borders under International Law, Treaties and all starting with the San Remo Conference and the Balfour Declaration. The three choices are as follows: 1) Foreign peoples desiring to reside within Israel may do so if they agree to obey the Noahic Code and Israeli Laws. 2) Those unwilling to accept such will be compensated for their lands and structures and permitted to take their wealth with them and go in peace with no fear of being hunted down in the future by Israelis and 3) One may decide they are not leaving and refuse to even accept the Noahic Code of seven laws and remain in order to end the Jews ruling here, these people have chosen war and their eradication is ordered in Torah for these are the people who will war against Israel and the Jews and are a real threat against us. These are the people we are commanded to eradicate from our lands by whatever means are required. As for the remainder of the anti-Semitism, the sole comfort and respite Israel can offer is the acceptance of all and any Jews into our lands and then providing them with protection. Can we protect the Jews everywhere in the world, probably not. But we can protect all the world’s Jews if only they would come home. Jews are a mere 0.2% of the world population which means that we cannot make the world safe for Judaism and the Jews residing across the world but Israel can be the offer for safety here in our natural home reestablished after over two-thousand years of exile. Beyond our borders, we can offer to help often in some small way, but real protection can only come within Israel which is the natural order of things.

 

Israel keeps asking the world what will it take, what must we do, how can we get you to love us? What we need do is understand that the world does not wish to love us or even like us and if they had their druthers, they would be rid of us, nation, people and all that goes with it. They see us for the sins they claim our forefathers committed when they introduced morality to a world filled with barbarians and for that we will be forever cursed by the barbarians. What we need realize is if given half a chance, most of the world would go back to their barbaric ways of the past and do so with great alacrity and celebration. That is why we will never be loved, liked nor appreciated and always be scorned, despised and rejected as we brought civility into the world and removed the pleasure of the constant orgies and the rape of women forgetting that that was also an age of rule by strength and not by will, mind and the ability to care for others. We can observe the slippage back to the ideals of the barbarian with the “Me First” generation where they will only do the minimal amount to get by but demand that they be rewarded greatly for their minimal efforts. We see it in the laws where a child in the womb has no right to life if it might interfere with mother’s social life and constant parties. We can see it as they are legalizing infanticide where even after the child has been born, drawn its first breaths and cried or possibly even smiled and had that innocent look of complete amazement at seeing the world outside the womb, and now the first state has made it legal to snuff out that life before it has any chance to understand the new world it just was permitted a glimpse and then they are tossed aside and left to perish. They get no love, no sympathy, no regrets, no compassion and no kindness, just a glimpse at the possibilities and then left on a cold slab to fade away through intentional neglect, and it is sanctioned by the governance. Israel must feel like that defenseless child in her interactions with much of the world, but Israel is not defenseless. What Israel needs to ask is do you fear us enough to treat us kindly with respect and dignity. How far do you wish us to go to show you that we are proud of our accomplishments and if you find us repulsive and repugnant, then we can accept your irrational hate and pay you back in kind which is not something you should desire. But you will find you are in luck as we are not the kind to ostracize you though we cannot prevent you from self-ostracizing.

 

We brought civility into the world along with the concept that one is to love their brothers and sisters, respect them, assist them and never take advantage of them even if they are weak. These are the little things the world gained from our Torah which Hashem blessed us through its knowledge and is the instruction manual on how to live a life which is worthy and works as an asset for all humanity. Should you decide that you want no part of what we offer the world, you do not desire the code of laws derived from our teaching, you do not wish to have to observe even partially the conduct by which you give honor to our creator, you do not care and wish to return to idolatry replete with child sacrifice just as is now legal in places on our globe, you do not wish to share in the fruits of a life well lived, then we will bother not your doorway and we will learn to live and continue to set the example which we have been commanded to observe which will not permit us to begrudge you or harm you for as long as you do not harm us. But be warned that should you decide to actively work to destroy our little garden here in Israel, then we will ask first that you cease and after you have had a good laugh, one final laugh, then we will turn from you until you realize the error of your ways. And should you actively attack us, then you will feel our wrath and see the end of your world as your nations will join all the others who attempted to harm us and eradicate us, for they have all departed this world and rule no more. The list is impressive as it includes the ancient Egyptians (no relations to the modern rulers of Egypt), Philistines, Assyrians, Babylonian Empire, Persian Empire (modern nation of Iran), Greek Empire, Roman Empire, the Caliphate, Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition (Spain remains with the same people but no longer rings the world or is anywhere near as impressive), Nazis and there is room for others who also wish to be a footnote or reference talking about the once mighty, place your nation’s name here.

 

Israel does not need grovel and beg for the love of other nations, for that we will let our wonders and successes will be our calling card. Israel can keep her head tall and stand proudly having had the lands which refused all others produce when we asked her to do so. This is our land and it is wholly unsuited for the use by any other peoples. Those empires also attempted to have the land produce and found that only Jews received rain in its seasons and grew crops of every kind with minimal effort and received results. Not only did the land produce far beyond any expectation, it was kind for the Jewish People and only the Jewish People, producing plentiful crops when they followed the laws of Torah, the Commandments from Hashem, and refused to produce when they strayed. This gift is not something Israel can share but we can show what kind of life is expected from the Jewish People in order for the land to produce such lushes crops and should they cease to follow the Laws of Torah, then the rain stops and the land does not produce and should this not make the impression necessary to force the Jewish People to repent, then will come worse, exile from this precious land. We are hoping that the return of so many of the Jewish People to these lands that this will prove to be the Redemption, the Final Redemption and the time we will be permitted and blessed to build the Third Temple in Jerusalem. This is the event, should Hashem so bless us, for which the Jewish People have waited for over two-thousand years. Every nation can choose to share in what will accompany this momentous event unparalleled in all history or they can shun Israel and claim that Torah is just a collection of tales told to keep the people oppressed using the fear of Hashem’s anger, so be it. We will reap the rewards which Hashem has promised and that will be that, end of the story. Others can join in and celebrate and benefit along with us or they can decide to oppose Israel and left out of the coming salvation. They can choose to win or lose, Israel will remain the key as she always has despite the presumed proof to the contrary her enemies have claimed with their saying that they were the new chosen people supplanting those who came before. This was and remains the mantra by which it is claimed that Hashem has condemned the Jewish People when the reality is some men decided to perform said condemnation of the Jews and now they watch as the prophesies of the redemption of the Jewish People is unfolding before their eyes. Every nations can decide if they desire to climb aboard or remain aloof and apart, that is their choice and will be their end, plain and simple.
