What Erudite Opposition to the Taylor Force Act Tells Us

 

An editorial argument in Foreign Policy titled The Smart Way to End ‘Pay to Slay’ written jointly by David Makovsky, Dennis Ross and Lia Weiner could not have been more off the point had they tried. They did correctly note that the aid the United States earmarks for the Palestinian Authority (PA) is intended (our denotations) to be, “divided into three baskets. The first basket, consisting of roughly $70 million, goes to electricity costs in the West Bank and medical treatment. Approximately $25 million of this basket serves to reimburse hospitals for medical care of Palestinians in East Jerusalem.” Also, “The remaining $45 million of this basket is paid directly to Israeli electricity companies to settle the PA’s electricity debts for services to PA buildings and debts accrued by Palestinians.”

They then go off the rails by claiming should this money be cut, then the PA would be required to take monies from other uses to pay these debts. The reason these funds are paid directly to the necessary recipients is because the PA never paid these debts and had this practice continued a number of Israeli hospitals would have financially collapsed partially due to providing the free treatments of the PA and Gaza patients and the Israeli electricity company was intending to cut off all service due to overdue, by numerous years, payments which they were no longer going to stick the payments due to their Israeli customers.

 

Their next notation is, “The second basket of $85 million consists of U.S. aid that is tangentially related to the PA. Most of these projects pertain to roads, water desalination, education, and good governance.” This is a bigger joke than the shovel ready road, bridge, highway and infrastructure repair jobs that President Barack Obama promised the American people in his first term. These vital infrastructures are often repaired due to necessity by Israel and the waste and trash treatment by the PA is intentionally done in the most ecologically damaging manner possible. They regularly pollute ground water and then blame Israel for the tainting of wells their own people are dependent upon, as they get no direct water from the PA due to disrepair or simply not being attached to the water supply. Israel attempted to assist but when workers, including Arab Israelis, were shot upon, this work ceased unless performed under IDF guards. The PA then protested about the invasion of their areas by the IDF to the United Nations and Israel was coerced in removing the protection and the workers. We will leave it to your imagination what the next accusation was against Israel about not completing promised repairs.

 

The final basket is more tragedy than aid as they tell it as such, “A third basket, made up of the remaining $106 million, goes directly to projects that are completely independent of the PA. These include various educational initiatives and private sector development. One of the notable projects in this basket is headed by the U.S.-based Mercy Corps, which aims to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Gazans by improving economic growth, education, and health in the Gaza Strip.” Any private sector development goes over 75% to Mahmoud Abbas’s three sons and their numerous construction and other infrastructure companies. Further, there are kickbacks to Abbas and his cronies for every dollar spent thus often doubling or tripling the cost of any project and the enrichment of the PA and Fatah hierarchy. But these are their minor cost arguments.

 

The rest of their argument is that any cutting of United States aid would adversely affect the poor Palestinian Arab people. They argue that these are a people who have no control over their leadership despite the fact that they overwhelmingly elected them in 2006 and Abbas in 2005. Further, if new elections were to be held to find a successor to Mahmoud Abbas, the two leading candidates are Fatah’s Marwan Barghouti, the Fatah leader who is currently serving five life sentences plus additional twenty years in Israel for a myriad of lethal acts of terror and Ismail Haniyeh who is the former leader of Hamas in Gaza. Further, a minimum of seventy percent would cast their votes for the two leading parties in the Parliament, Hamas and Fatah (in that order) with another approximately ten percent voting for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a potentially even more radical terrorist group. Making their argument that the people are victims and not part of the problem is further undermined by a July 2017 polling by the Palestinian Center of Policy and Survey Research headed by Dr. Khalil Shikaki, the well-respected and known worldwide Palestinian pollster, where, “91% are opposed to the suspension of PA payments to Palestinian security prisoners (a euphemism for convicted terrorist) in Israeli jails; only 7% support such measure.”

 

Perhaps we should just cut to the chase and take everything down to the ground and forget high principles and grand eloquence. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is in all actuality and honesty the substitution by the Arab Islamic world for the Arab-Israeli conflict done in order to make Israel appear to have the power and numerical advantages instead of Israel as David and the Arab world as Goliath. Their propaganda ploy had worked to the best of their hoped intentions with Europe and the left worldwide lining up behind the poor, downtrodden, unfortunate Arab victims and pulling all sympathy away from Israel. Now the Arab world can berate Israel and feel good about themselves and read in the Western media how they are so feeling and taking the side of the poor, downtrodden, unfortunate Palestinian Arab victims instead of reading how six Arab nations’ armies crossed the Israeli borders outnumbering Israel a hundred planes to one and five thousand men to one and five hundred tanks to one and then read a week later how Israel miraculously survived and even defeated these combined forces. The reality is those same six Arab nations are simply biding their time waiting for the perfect moment to pounce across the Israel borders after using the Palestinian Arab areas as staging zones claiming to have entered these zones to protect innocent victims of Israeli hegemony. There is the reality as simply as we can state the truth which nobody desires to say.

 

The Arab-Israeli conflict, and let us stop being rubes for a plain case of Taqiyya and call this what it is, the Arab-Israeli conflict is about two completely opposing worldviews and positions. The Israeli position is and always has been peace. Israel surrendered 78% of the British Mandate to provide the Arabs with a homeland which we today call Jordan whose population is 80% Palestinian Arabs, if that terminology is to have any true meaning. Then when the United Nations voted on November 30, 1947, to further divide the British Mandate resulting in the Arabs gaining another 11% and Israel getting only half of the remainder after Jordan, also 11% with two-thirds of the Israel portion being Negev Desert, Israel agreed while the Arabs rejected starting an Arab-Jew Civil War in the remaining 22% as a preemptory start to the ensuing May 15, 1948, Israel independence marred by those six Arab armies and numerous militias attempting to eradicate the Jewish State at her inception. Israel is said to have won, survived would be more accurate as when the Arabs rejected the General Assembly Resolution 181, that resolution basically ceased to exist leaving the entirety of the 22% of the remaining British Mandate, as promised by the Churchill White Papers, to the Jewish State presumably backed by the British Crown, though you would have had a hard time believing this as many British as well as Nazi officers from World War II advised the Egyptians and Jordanians standing together all but side-by-side. The result was Israel lost Judea and Samaria to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt and both nations flooded these areas with Arab refugees and other Arabs they wished to reward with land or simply displace from lands they held. The Jews in these areas were thrown from their homes and properties and sent to Israel, if they were fortunate.

 

Then there were the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War which were both initiated by the Arab forces and had numerous armies against Israel, yet Israel managed to prevail in these wars. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza despite Egypt’s illegal occupation of Gaza to Egypt in exchange for peace and offered Judea and Samaria back to Jordan despite Jordan’s illegal occupied for almost twenty years of these areas. Egypt and Jordan resigned their illegally occupied areas but refused to allow their citizens to return from these areas knowing they would cause a demographic nightmare for Israel as well as a security nightmare. The Arab-Israeli conflict comes down to one simple fact, the Arabs refuse to permit Israel to exist. Israel, by her actions, is not attempting to conquer Arab lands, their usual claim. Israel only seeks to retain her 22% of the British Mandate and is willing to permit the Arabs in Gaza to become a nation, Hamasatan or West Iran, choose whatever name they wish, and allow semi autonomy for the Arabs in Judea and Samaria in Areas A and B while Israel retains most of Area C. Israel cannot permit the Arabs to have an independent state along the 1949 Armistice Lines (ala Green Line aka 1967 Lines) as that would place Arab rockets on the crest of the highlands overlooking the central plains of Israel which includes around three-quarters of her population and industrial zones as well as her main international airport. Truth be told, if the world were honest, as they were when creating Pakistan and millions were relocated from one area to the other and vice-versa, they would allow the Arabs to sell their properties in Judea and Samaria and even receive a relocation allowance from Israel and have them relocate to Jordan, Egypt, or whatever Arab nations or other nation willing to house them and end this impasse once and for all. But the world is not honest and as we have stated, they want to have Israel face these crippling problems with the hopes that Israel will fail before the pressures and thus appease the Arabs.

 

Plain English, the Arab-Israeli conflict are two implacable enemies, not prospective peace partners. The Palestinian Arab leadership and the people themselves have stated that the only solution that they will accept is Israel either eradicated or under Arab rule and every Jew dead. That is not something which can be settled over any peace process in all of history. The Arabs, like the Europeans, spent half their time stealing wealth from the Jews or murdering them and the other half living in an uneasy peace with an additional tax, the Jiyza, placed on the Jews as Dhimmis. Now that the Jews have their homelands returned and rule themselves the Arabs no longer can collect the Jiyza, the Jews are no longer Dhimmi but are instead proud and armed, something not permitted Dhimmi, and the Arabs cannot accept that they were defeated because since they left Mecca and Medina their book, the Quran, guaranteed they would rule the entire world, destroy the Jews and never ever lose a war. Europe is about to learn this lesson of how it is to have Arabs living within your society and desiring all of it for themselves and you enslaved or dead. Europe, learn from Israel, lighting candles and listening to the Arabs sweet songs of commiserating over your loss while handing out sweet candies to celebrate in private is not exactly a recipe for survival. Your ancestors understood Arab Muslim desires to conquer their lands and fought back sometimes successfully and others not so much which is why we are having the crazed discussion about Jews and Christians having no claim to Jerusalem. These are both societal struggles and only one can survive within any national boundary. As an object lesson, allow us to close with a little tale about the Camel and the tent, it is an Arab tale told where they are to learn from the camel and to never be that Arab.

 

 


It was a cold winter night. An Arab was resting in his tent when his camel peeped inside and asked, “Master, it’s very cold outside. Please allow me to put my head inside your tent.”
The kind master took pity on the poor animal and agreed to the camel’s request. A little later, the camel asked, “Master, please let me put my neck inside your tent as well.” Once again, the master allowed him to do so.
Next, the camel asked if he could put his forelegs in and again the kind master agreed. Very soon, the camel was completely inside the tent. But the tent was too small for both the master and the camel.
Finally, the camel asked his master to leave the tent so that he could be more comfortable. By now, the master was very angry and turned the camel out in the cold again.

Abbas Issues Demands so Israel Must Demand Abbas Go

 

We would love to say the story has shown definitive signs of change, but alas, they have this ugly persistence to remain the same. There is a standing reason why things have not and will not change, that reason is Mahmoud Abbas. The United States under President Trump originally demanded that the Palestinian Authority (PA) cease all payment to terrorists as well as their families for their murder of Israelis, especially Jews. This was an appalling demand for Abbas who treated it as an anathema to his continued role as President. Abbas threatened to dissolve the PA and resign from the twelfth year of his four-year term forcing Israel to deal with the problems of providing for the PA residents, the PA’s Arabs. Israel, according to Abbas, would be incapable of providing services for the Arabs currently presumably provided for by the PA. What makes his threat a joke is that Israel already provides much of the electricity, water, sewage, roads, gas and other utilities and services, not all, but most and currently for free. Should Israel be forced by the dissolution of the PA to care for the Arabs, it would likely work out as a boon to both the utility companies and the Arabs as well. Their economy would no longer be subjected to the harsh regulations, taxes and bullying by Abbas and the PA henchmen they call their Security Forces. They are more like enforcers for the mafia which runs the territory. The IDF already provides the security for Abbas and his cabal, so keeping the peace will not be much of an additional demand. The individual towns and cities could return to being ruled by the dominant family of their area and under this hold, semiautonomous rule.

 

That is the reason that Abbas would never go through with the threat to dissolve the PA. He knows that the people over whom he presumes to rule would soon celebrate the freedom they would gain once he dissolved the PA and Israel removed Abbas, his officers, the security forces and the remainder of the PA power structure and turned the Arabs over to their true family leadership, each town to its family and each family responsible for the peace in their area. These families would actually work to prevent terrorism from emanating from amongst their people, their Arab friends and neighbors, as they would prefer not to have the IDF interfering with their authority and rule. Their only demand is for their people to reside in peace and have security and for them to flourish and live a full and healthy life. Israel using the IDF would provide the security from outside interference in exchange for the Arab lead families to secure their towns and prevent terrorists from originating there. The families would collect taxes and with those funds pay for the utilities and other services provided by Israeli companies and the government and be responsible for whatever tax agreement was made with Israel. The relationship would be mutually beneficial, as the Israelis would prevent inter-familial fighting and other threats to the leaders of each town.

 

Abbas realizes that he would no longer be receiving the millions upon millions of Euros and Dollars from all the fools in the world. Abbas and his coterie are never going to give up their little fraud suckling at the teat of the United Nations, UNRWA, European Union, United States, European nations and the other nations of the world fool enough to contribute to the PA racket. They have all become millionaires with them each having stuffed away hundreds of millions of Dollars and Euros into their Swiss accounts. Add the fact that Abbas and his closest cadre get to travel the world freely and be treated by the leadership of Europe, the United States, the United Nations and other organizations as royalty given the respect with dinners and banquets. And then there is the coup de grace, all the time they get to plan and execute terror attacks against Israel and murder all the Jews they can and the world gives them cover and a complete pass and the more Jews they murder, the greater the honors they receive, especially in Europe and the United Nations.

 

For a terror master there is no sweeter gig than the one Yasser Arafat set up with the assistance of the United States State department and a cadre of leftist Israelis who saw the opportunity to get their names down in history as the great peacemakers. Abbas inherited this PA from Arafat and, playing Yasser in a suit and tie, has played the part to the hilt and raped the world for his blood money. The real sadness is the great eagerness with which the world praises this murderous bloodsucker and Jew killer. And the game is starting anew with President Trump and his administration. President Trump need be given a degree of credit for his appointment of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and he displayed true anger over the lies told by Abbas at the White House press conference once he was shown the reality. But now, it appears, President Trump has fallen into the regimen proposed most likely by the State Department, and likely endorsed fully by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, of sending emissaries proposing peace and begging at the feet of Mahmoud Abbas waiting to be told what the United States must squeeze from Israel so that there can be a photo op at the White House with Abbas, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu before Abbas betrays his word and walks away from any and all promises blaming Israel for existing as the reason for his betrayal. Then the Europeans, European Union, United Nations and the State Department all condemn Israel for missing another opportunity to surrender completely before the PA. We have witnessed this same song and dance ever since Oslo in September of 1993 and it will continue until something changes, and we have an idea what it will take.

 

Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas

Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas

 

There is one dirty little secret about this charade and that is that those who started this fiasco are the only ones who can end it. Abbas sure will never end this fools errand as he gains wealth, power, respect, legitimacy and most of all, an unending flow of money. That leaves only Israel who can bring this debacle to an end, but it will take somebody with great self-assurance and a brave heart. It will take a Prime Minister of Israel ready to stand up to the world and say loudly and clearly, “Never Again!” This Prime Minister will not crave the power or the prestige of the office and will have pursued the position mainly to use it to an end which will place their name in history and legends. They seek these neither but know they will be their legacy though they will be scorned most the days of their remaining life. This Prime Minister who we cannot name for they may not yet be born, probably has not even dreamed of the office or their place in history and we know not if they will be a man or woman, we just know they will live with a singleness of purpose once they realize their singular dream. They will win the office by doing something unusual, pure honesty, as they will promise that they finally end the peace which has eluded all their predecessors. They will promise a peace which will make all Israelis happy in time and will make the main settlements and all of Jerusalem all part of Israel proper and end the wars with the Arabs. Their coalition will be solid but depending upon the support of at least on rival party which joined the coalition conditional on peace being reached as expected.

 

This Prime Minister will do the United States, United Nations, European Union, European nations and the world the favor of allowing one attempt at making peace with the leader of the PA. When the PA does as usual and demands the release of two-thousand prisoners and another freeze on settlement building in order to meet, this Prime Minister does the unexpected and releases the prisoners and agrees to the freeze, but only if their meeting produces progress. The meeting with the sitting President of the United States and his emissaries and the President of the PA will go exactly as the Prime Minister expected as the PA will demand the 67 borders, half of Jerusalem, all the Jewish Holy Places in Hevron, Old City of Jerusalem, and the heartlands of historic Eretz Yisroel as described in Torah and the remainder of the prisoners released. The Prime Minister claimed that such concessions would require more deliberations and waited for the right and perfect moment, the photo op on the White House lawns where the Prime Minister was expected to make nice, pledge their support for the ‘two state solution’ and shake the hand of the PA leader. When the time comes for the Israeli Prime Minister to speak, they speak from their heart knowing that they will likely not be Prime Minister by morning. They speak truth and state that the Oslo Accords are dead and have been since the early twenty-first century. He will explain that Israel will give each and ever PA Arab the opportunity to emigrate after selling their lands and assets at a fair price and a special relocation allowance or they can remain as a legal resident alien with full rights accorded such. They will have religious rights, land rights, legal rights but will not have political rights except in local elections in the towns which will be designated as Arab ruled.

 

Upon a stormy return to Israel where some thousands of leftist demonstrators meet this Prime Minister at the airport, holding signs claiming their leader has murdered any hope for peace for all eternity. The Prime Minister kept to the announcement and immediately sought any nation willing to take the PA leadership and the commanders of their security forces. Within a few weeks these PA officials have all be relocated to the nations who voluntarily gave them refuge, some amongst the Arab world with others went to Europe and even a few were accepted by the United States. All these arrangements were negotiated and conducted with assistance from the United States, European Union and United Nations.

 

There was a suit brought before the International Criminal Court by the PA, but they were distraught as the verdict was that Israel had the legal rights to the lands from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. It later became known that the United States Secretary of State had visited the PA leadership before they left Washington and advised them against attempting taking their claims before any of the World Courts, as they would most definitely lose. They were warned that all their predecessors knew that the only means of gaining any of the lands set aside by the League of Nations for the formation of the Jewish State was through the same means as was used to form the Arab states of Jordan and Gaza, through the agreements of the Jews, the Zionists themselves. As long as the Zionists, the Jews did not release their claims to the land, then the lands of the British Mandate Lands would remain an aside for the Jewish State. The sole reason Jordan was permitted to be formed was because the Zionist Congress signed an agreement, the Churchill White Paper in which they released the lands east of the Jordan to the British to use to absolve their promise to the Hashemites and the Arabs. Gaza was wrenched from the Jews and Israel through the perfidy of the works of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and President George W. Bush who knew they were telling deceits to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon but he was ill and seeking immortality as the one who made peace, and instead he placed Hamas forever on the southern border of Israel. That is how those lands were torn from the grasp of Israel. For the meantime, let us pray that no more Prime Ministers will seek to be the one who makes peace at the cost of more of our holy lands before a real Prime Minister will exercise the right of a sovereign state to defend and protect all within their rightful borders.

Now the Saudi Peace Initiative Springs Back to Life

 

Every four to eight years, whenever the United Stated changed the occupant in the White House, we hear the Sirens’ call from Jeddah, ‘Come hither and hear our magical plan to end the strife throughout the world.’ Of course the Saudis are selling their peace initiative for Israel to return to the borders from before the Six Day War, the Green Line and for Israel to permit a fraction of the Arab refugees to settle within Israel, only the ones who can prove their original residence was within Israel plus the dividing of Jerusalem making two-thirds of the Capital City no longer inhabitable or even useable by Israel as snipers will sit upon the high spots and shoot Israelis who enter their field of fire. What is left untold is the danger to Jerusalem of being cut off by Arab forces from the remainder of Israel. Further, Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion International Airport will become direct fire zones for rockets and aircraft will be unsafe flying into or out of Israel. Lastly, those few Arab refugees will number at least three million and Israel will face reintegrating the one million Jews who will be uprooted from their homes and sent packing back to Israel. You have to understand, while Israel must be forced to accept Muslim Arabs in the millions, not a single Jew can be permitted to reside on the Arab lands. That has always struck us as a tad bit like what the United States would call a hate crime and people would be in courts facing charges of discrimination, hey, but these are only Jews, it doesn’t matter in the ways of the world now, does it. The fact that this deal is designed to destroy Israel, both from within and without, also matters little to anybody because the world never desired and even plotted to prevent Israel from ever becoming a successful venture and the fact that, while threatened every day from well before its founding with annihilation, Israel managed to become a success.

 

Jason Greenblatt and the president’s son-in-law and Middle East envoy, Jared Kushner, have been assigned the unenviable plan to tour the Arab world, or at least the pertinent countries, and then head to Israel to meet with the central players where they will find the real reasons for no peace ever being established, or at least we hope they will. First off, they meet with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu, who is actually inconsequential, and then on to the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA), currently Mahmoud Abbas, who is simply the current person carrying on the legacy as it was assigned to Yasser Arafat. That is the dirty little secret which, should the President’s envoys be prescient enough, these men must pry from the unsettling result of their talks. They will find both men speaking of reaching a mutual and lasting peace and their willingness to make sacrifices for peace. There will be a slight difference in their attitudes which is key to the dirty little secret. One of these gentlemen will demand certain concessions and definitions as the requirement for even beginning any negotiations. The demands will appear innocent and inconsequential, but when studied through the lense of the past they represent a set of serious compromises to any hope of a settlement. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a high representative for the PA, demanded a “clear vision” from the United States on resuming peace talks with Israel and that Abbas “wants clarity” on the two-state solution. The clear vision they are demanding is exactly the same as before, namely, that President Donald Trump and all of his Administration are on board with forcing Israel to make concessions. The clarity they desire on the Two State solution is that their definition will be the sole definition and that the United States is truly with the PA in forcing the Israelis to capitulate. What need be understood is that Mahmoud Abbas is but the spike at the end of the bludgeon, and that behind Abbas is the entire Sunni Arab world who accepted the premise for backing the Palestinian cause as defined by Yasser Arafat. The plan is excessively simply and plainly stated that the plan was to establish a beachhead from which to demand more concessions until Israel was left so weak that the Arab world’s combined forces behind Saudi Arabia and Egypt, along with the now defunct Syria and Lebanon, could and would easily overpower and destroy the Jewish state and then cleanse the lands of the infernal Jews. The plan has been explicitly stated (see videos below) that Israel can be a binational state with Arab rule or the entirety of the area can be granted to the Arabs or Israel can remain a democracy as long as the Arab (Palestinians) be permitted to resettle within Israel with full citizenship, all five million or so of them, making them almost the majority needing just a small percentage of the Arab Israelis to assist their taking full political control. Simply stated, Israel can remain Israel as long as the nation is run by the Arabs and Muslims and the Jews know their place as Dhimmis. The reality is every plan acceptable to the Arabs, represented by the PA, is if there is no Jewish state remaining as a result. This is the initial piece of the puzzle which together makes up the entirety of the dirty little secret.

 

 

 

The plan has been established that the destruction of Israel is the exact and complete end of the desired peace the Arabs seek. They are not seeking all of their aims in the initial peace, they simply want their beachhead from which they will make future demands and through stages destroy Israel. Whatever the PA accepts is not what they actually desire as the finality. There is never to be a finality as long as Israel continues to exists. This has been exactly the desire of the Arab world, the Europeans, much of the United States government. The rest of the world has simply agreed with this historic and simply demonically genocidal demand by the Western and Muslim Worlds as it mattered less than nothing to them as long as they were permitted trade with Israel. Well, the Western World trades with Israel as well as everybody else who desire the advances, technology and other discoveries and inventions which the Israeli develop, so sure, trade is fine as it advances everyone. The Muslim world does not trade with Israel as their revulsion can only be supported if they stick to the belief that Israel does not exist and all the lands remain under Islamic control. To the Muslim world, particularly the Arab Muslims, Israel is nothing more than a wayward province which has temporarily revolted and will require taming and being brought back into the fold and under Islamic rule as no lands once under Islamic rule in perpetuity. The situation is similar to that which exists between Mainland China and Taiwan except Israel stands under greater threat than Taiwan as Israel has no water barrier to make invasion difficult. What is unfortunate is that the Western world is willing to sacrifice the reestablishment of the ancient peoples and their homelands which gave the West and Christianity their foundations which might just be worth a short paragraph itself.

 

The greatest contribution to Western civilization and Christianity by the Israelites, the Jewish People, was, of course, the Ten Commandments (see below). But there was far more as the basis for Judeo-Christian ethics was born from the Old Testament and the writings of the Judges, Prophets and Kings. There were the wise and sagely guidance and admonitions found within Proverbs and Psalms. There was the limitations on a ruler, a king, or any other governing entity formed written in Deuteronomy 17:14-17. The influences of Judaism were largely spiritual but were not limited to simply spiritual. They also were one of the main formers of the centrality of the individual in a society and that every society is the sum of its individuals. Every individual has their effect upon the society just as the society will affect each individual. For this reason, we have the concept that one is their brother’s keeper and that the society is thus responsible for its members. These are simply the very basics from which the whole concept of nobility of the individual and the sanctity of life are derived. This, in turn, leads to the concept that government serves the people and should retain only those powers which are required to maintain order and provide public safety. These were the concepts which led to the Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence and finally the Bill of Rights. The rest can be researched with a little effort, just be forewarned that the subject is used to defame traditional Judaism and the concepts in Torah and the documents which followed.

The coming months on into years for as long as the Trump Presidency continues, the path will be familiar to those who have watched and understood. There will be demands from the PA for Israel to make the noble and needful sacrifices for peace. They define peace exactly as did the Quran. Peace means Islamic rule over all. This ‘all’ spoken of by the Quran means the entirety of existence where humanity resides. The ‘all’ the PA means only starts with all of Israel and then will melt into the Quranic meaning of all. The sacrifice the PA actually demands is that the Jews of Israel admit that they are inferior and require Muslims to care for them, as they are incapable of acting in a means which would care for their real needs. They also demand the Jews realize that their real needs are to believe in the Quran and convert to Islam. The reasoning is simple and straight-forward. The PA is simply another face of the idea and belief in Islamic superiority and rightful hegemony over all things. Israel is a challenge to the rightness of the Quran as Israel has stolen Islamic lands which cannot be permitted to stand. This is why the PA demands Israel surrender as Islam demands that all surrender to Allah. This has been the story of the entirety from 1948 forward. The Arab nations all invaded Israel on the morning of her independence on May 15, 1948 with the intent of erasing all of Israel and her non-Islamic population. They failed in removing Israel but did take the areas of Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Then, once again, in 1967, the Arabs invaded and this time they lost and lost big. By the end of six days, the war was over and Israel had gained the Golan Heights, Sinai Peninsula, Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Once more in 1973, the Egyptians attempted to destroy Israel with assistance from Syria as Jordan sat this one out. They lost once again and if Israel had not been prevented by the combined threats from much of the world, led by the Soviet Union and the United States, she would have taken Damascus and Cairo, but instead retreated as demanded to the initial lines of the conflict. Since then the tactics were altered and the PA was eventually born in order to make peace between Israel and the Arab world. The terms of that peace remains the same as the previous demands from the Arab world, the destruction of Israel and the subjugation of the Jewish People under Islam. The terms of all we are going to hear will resemble exactly those we have heard from the PA and the Arab world for quite some time. Their demands will remain the same, their words will remain the same, their accusations will remain the same and nothing will ever change because the Islamic demand that the world bend to their rule and their inevitable dominion and superiority has never altered one iota. So, simply put on Led Zeppelin and listen to your favorite tracks, but the most pertinent one for this writing remain The Song Remain the Same (below).
