Any Excuse to Postpone Action on Claiming All the Land

 

The excuses roll off the lips and out of the mouths of the leaders of the coalition one after the other. They make them sound so righteous and proper. We need to work with the Administration of President Trump. The security situation demands we wait as that takes precedent. The Prime Minister has determined this is not the time. The Europeans have demanded we reconsider. The stars are not aligned in favor currently. There are winds blowing for which we have to understand. Any port in a storm will do when it comes to postponing consideration of the Sovereignty Bill. Judea and Samaria, the Shomron, are to continue to be Jewish killing fields and our leaders are refusing to extend protection of Israeli law and instead leave the area under military rule which has proven so insufficient, especially since the disastrous Oslo Accords. What is strange is even the Romans under Herod’s rule over the Jews included not only the Shomron but lands east of the Jordan River as belonging to the Jews of the First Century (see map below). The Sovereignty Bill is the Israeli answer to actually just agree with Mahmoud Abbas that the Oslo Accords are dead. They should have been declared dead when the Second Intifada broke out. They should have been declared dead when the Stabbing Intifada broke out. And they certainly should have been declared dead after the recent implosion of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the expletive strewn tirade by Mahmoud Abbas declaring relations with the United States, President Trump, Israel and whomever else he blamed for his failings screeched forth from Nablus. Truth be told, the Oslo Accords were stillborn as the reason behind this deceit was to fool the ready to be duped Israelis, specifically the peace loving Jews, into believing they actually had partners for peace and instead were bringing vipers to their bare chests. Still, it is way past time that Israel took the necessary steps to annex all the areas currently having Israeli citizens and their neighborhoods, cities and industrial parks. Finally, we need consider ending the Oslo farce and taking the steps which were legal and expected after the Six Day War and reclaim all the lands west of the Jordan and let the world howl for as long as they please, and here is how to accomplish that and why.

The asps in question were Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas and their PLO which once renamed the Palestinian Authority was presumed to end their terror war on Israel. Well, how many deaths and acts of terror does it take before we admit that there has been no change, they are still just terrorists and we have no partner for peace, just those who wish to murder us in our beds (Fogel Family), on our streets (Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal HY”d and so many others), in our synagogues (Kehilat Bnei Torah synagogue) using weapons of every variety and even ramming us with vehicles. This is the language they are taught in their schools, heard on their televisions and radios, lauded with the naming of streets, parks, camps, schools and Mosques and directed all from the headquarters in Ramallah of the presumed peace partners. Their leaders admit freely that there are no such people as the Palestinians and they are but a construct for murdering Jews and Zionists and later the Americans and Europeans. The world should be clamoring for the Israeli leadership to annex the totality of the lands west of the Jordan and deporting the Palestinian Authority threat and menace, sending the leadership and all its aiders and abettors back to Tunis from whence they came or sending them to Syria, Iran or whomever is willing to take them. They have proven their deceits and no longer serve any constructive purpose, but until the leadership, starting with Prime Minister Netanyahu, take the initiative and extend the rule of law to every Israel community of citizens, then the blame for any more terror lies with them as well as the PA terror masters.

 

 

The reality of the situation is that given the opportunity to leave the area ruled under autonomy by the PA, the Arab residents would leave of their own volition if not for the fact that doing so is punishable by death. Oh no, there is no law to point to, just that the Arabs know that this is what Arafat had ordered and that Abbas is no different except he dresses well. They have all seen the gruesome reality of people lynched and left hanging from cranes in village squares or shot in groups as done by Hamas in 2014 responding to allegations of their collaborating with Israel during the Gaza war as a warning to all, do not even consider leaving or cooperating with the Jews. That is the reason that the Palestinian Authority and its entire security apparatus must be dissolved and prevented from any continuing influence. Only then can the Arabs residing in the areas they currently control with iron-fisted subjugation be free to act in their own best interests.

Once the area has been pacified and freed from the PA oppressors, then Israel can offer to buy any properties at twice appraised value along with additional funding for relocation allowance for any non-Jew who desires to relocate outside the area of Israel which would then include all the lands promised under the San Remo Conference and the Mandate System which entitled Israel to the lands west of the Jordan River. Israel has made an offer to the illegal African migrants who came seeking jobs and not refugee status or asylum that should they leave by the end of March, they will be given $3,500, along with airfare and other incentives. Certainly, an even more generous offer could be offered to the Arabs and other non-Jews, even including Israeli citizens who are unhappy living in Israel, to have them relocate with the understanding that their move from Israel will be permanent and return will not be permitted. As far as airfare, that would need to include a pair of tickets if their relocation were to an Arab nation which does not permit flights from Israel. Of course, if the chosen destination were Jordan, no airfare would be required, simply ground transportation for them and their household goods. All of those accepting such an offer would be permitted a certain size container for personal household belongings they wish to take with them and anything beyond the allotted size would need be at their expense. The Arabs from the PA who desire remaining residing in Israel would be granted resident alien status which allows them every privilege of residence but does not permit their having political rights such as voting in national elections or regional elections. Certainly if a town or city was predominantly Arabs, who were once under the PA, like Nablus or Bethlehem, these resident aliens would be permitted to vote in their city elections. Cities like Hevron would need to be considered with specifics put in place, as there exists both Arabs from the PA and Jews residing in the city and some meeting of the two would be required. Hevron could not remain a divided city as such does not function well as coordination will always be a problem. There will be certain difficulties resulting from this change but there will be ways of handling almost any situation.

 

Once Israeli law has been extended to the entirety of the area, there would be a simple understanding that terrorism would not be tolerated and any act of terror would be dealt with severely. There would need be a system by which any terrorist having attempted or successfully committed an act of terror would, after serving their court assigned sentence in prison, would then be deported and their attempt to return would result in another prison sentence and again deportation. Also, the family of a terrorist would potentially face deportation if it became known that they knew of their dependent child’s intent to commit an act of terror and they had not informed authorities, they would also face deportation. Where such may sound harsh, Israel has suffered more than its share of terrorist acts and would already have made a generous offer for people unhappy with Israeli rule to leave with much financial assistance, any who remain must be expected to refrain from violence, especially terrorist violence. The driving force behind these actions was two-fold, first the false offer of peace by the PA leadership and second their use of terror as their weapon to destroy Israel and murder Jews proved their anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic driving emotions and for these and their being steeped in terror was the entire reason for the deportation of the PA leadership and security force and the offer to permit those desiring to reside other than under Israeli rule of law a generous package to get them started elsewhere. After such generosity, Israel has every right to expect those remaining to live under Israeli law and to do so peaceably. Any other nation in the world would not deport or offer generous relocations bonuses but would instead hold trials for those behind the terrorism with stiff sentences even to include the death penalty where appropriate and deportation as a minimal sentence without any relocation bonus. Further, for those desiring leaving, they would be permitted by other nations without even the offer to buy their property. They would basically be invited to use the door and not let it strike their backsides on their way out. That is the reality in the majority of the world and Israel is likely one of the few if not the only to offer illegal immigrants financial aid to relocate provided they do so within a set time period and did so voluntarily or they can ignore the warnings and be arrested and deported without any bonus. That is theirs to choose and is far better a choice than the United States even provides. Those nations who allow airfare to their originating nation and not just dumping them over the border they crossed on entrance are considered generous; Israel is being attacked for her generosity. That is simply proof that there are those, especially when it comes to Israel, who would not be satisfied with a loaf of bread under each arm. Simply put, they would never permit Israel any credit no matter how exemplary the Israeli actions. We call those in all too many cases, NGO’s.

Abbas is Coming to the Security Council

 

Mahmoud Abbas has been scheduled to address the United Nations Security Council on February 20, 2018, and his plea is easily predicted. Before tackling our predictive abilities, allow that we look at the recent past and what has led up to this coming confrontation, one we revel in anticipation. The chain of events begins on December 6, 2017, with the speech by United States President Donald Trump. President Trump delivered his Jerusalem recognition as the Capital of the State of Israel speech from the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room where Trump said, “It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.” President Trump was referencing the fact that on November 8, 1995, the United States Congress overwhelmingly, with rare total bipartisan agreement, passed the JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT OF 1995 declaring that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and in response to this will move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. This legislation passed in the Senate by a vote of 93-yea with 5-nay and 1 not-voting and in the House of Representatives 374-yea with 37-nay with 5 voting present and 17 not-voting. That results in a total Congressional vote of four-hundred-sixty-seven voting in favor and sixty-five voting against or abstaining in some form which we counted as opposition.

 

The law was signed by President Clinton knowing that there existed what we like to call the ‘Weasel Clause’ which permitted the President to sign a waver covering the next six months stating that there exist security and diplomatic reasons to put off the enactment of the law. President Clinton had no sooner signed the law that he then signed the first six-month waiver and Presidents have been signing six-month waivers every six months ever since with the gleeful backing by the State Department, an anti-Israel department which has never missed an opportunity to deter everything Israel. This has been a consistent stance by the State Department since they advised against American recognition of the nascent State of Israel. Quoting from “President Truman’s Decision to Recognize Israel” published by Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs wrote in the first paragraph, “President Truman regarded his Secretary of State, General of the Army George C. Marshall, as “the greatest living American.” Yet the two men were on a collision course over Mideast policy. Marshall firmly opposed American recognition of the new Jewish state.” Despite Marshall’s recommendations, President Truman was the first national leader to recognize the new State of Israel on May 15, 1948. Since the passing of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, we figure there have been forty-six waivers signed collectively by Presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and even Trump. President Trump has set in motion the initial steps such that he should be the last President signing these waivers allowing the law to finally be realized. But finally, a President has kept the promise that Presidents William Jefferson Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Hussein Obama and President Trump had all promised to honor the will of the American people and the Congress and move the embassy to Jerusalem recognizing the capital of Israel. It is unsurprising that President Trump, a unique President as he has no actual history as a politicians but rather a businessman, finally was good to his word and took the initial steps in moving the embassy and recognized the Israeli capital as Jerusalem. Perhaps this stems from the fact that in business one is rewarded for keeping their word and face difficulties whenever they renege on their word.

 

Since President Trump very publically recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, there has been a variety of reactions with an unfortunate number of negative pushbacks. The European Union, United Nations, Arab League, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, numerous European and Arab leaders and numerous other leaders and NGO’s all decrying the move by President Trump. Perhaps the most negative reaction came from Mahmoud Abbas who erupted in a fiery speech to the PLO Central Council where he cursed President Trump and his entire family exclaiming, “May your house be destroyed.” This is an old Arabic curse which means that you and all of your extended family be thrown into the street and live homeless begging for scraps and dependent on the generosity of others. There are few nastier ways of condemning a person and Abbas wished the worst of the world to befall President Trump and all around him. Mahmoud Abbas was said to have burned his bridges with his declaring the United States no longer an acceptable mediator for peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

His condemnations of President Trump and the United States is an integral part of his plans for going to the Security Council where he has plans to use his speech and cooperation of the current Security Council President, Kuwait, to propose a motion to have Palestine recognized as a real and complete nation using the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice Lines, as the borders with Israel. Such a motion is likely to cause some problems for the United States. The current members of the United Nations Security Council are the five permanent members with veto power who are China, France, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, and the United States, plus the ten non-permanent members made up by Bolivia, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Netherlands, Peru, Poland and Sweden. These nations likely to pass such a motion are China, France, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, Bolivia, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Netherlands, Peru, Poland and Sweden, a near unanimous vote of fourteen of the fifteen nations. Even should as many as five nations bend to pressures from the United States or even seven, that still would allow such a motion to pass unless the United States vetoes the motion. Mahmoud Abbas is hoping that he can get the full fourteen or at least more than nine thus being able to further isolate the United States and claim the American veto proves they are the pawns of Israel and thus anything done by President Trump will be claimed to be meaningless regurgitation of what Israel dictated for him.

 

Mahmoud Abbas is going to denounce President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem, that is obvious. But that will simply be the introduction and repeated theme, as he will denounce everything Israel and United States. Abbas is going to claim that President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu are working together to advance and accelerate the building of settlements beyond the Green Line in order to steal Arab sacred lands which are in a trust for the Palestinian people. Abbas will twist the meaning of United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 where he will attempt to quote it as saying, “Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from all territories occupied in the recent conflict,” When the actual document reads, “Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict (see map below).” There was great deliberation about the exact word, “all,” and whether Israel, who was fighting a defensive war, would be demanded to return all of the lands gained during the Six Day War. What is most interesting is according to International Law, any lands gained from a defensive war by a nation may be retained as repayment for having been aggressed and for the reason of establishing ‘more defensible borders’ in order to prevent future temptation of attacks. Only when Israel gained territories did the world first call these rules into question which many here find very interesting and telling indeed. Abbas will be adding the word which was fought over and about which the Security council entered very deep and arduous discussions over whether Israel was to be forced back to the 1949 Armistice lines, the borders which Abba Eban referred to as the ‘Auschwitz Borders’ or would be permitted to retain lands. Much of the discussion pertained directly to the area called the Shomron, what Jordan renamed the West Bank so as to remove the Jewish names of Shomron, or Judea and Samaria, the lands which Abbas desires to steal just as Jordan had in the 1948-9 war when six Arab armies attempted to destroy Israel at her birth. Lord Caradon, the British ambassador who submitted to the Security Council what was to become the accepted version of Resolution 242, publicly declared afterward on repeated occasions that there was no intent to demand an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 lines. It was his insistence and refusal to have wording which could ever be interpreted as a demand for Israel to return all lands, only that Israel be required to return lands, any amount of the lands but never all of the lands. Israel was to be permitted to establish for herself defensible borders by which many at that time understood such to mean an eastern border of the Jordan River.

Once Israel made her peace with Egypt and returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula, she had met the requirements under UNSC Res 242 and could have simply retained the remainder of the lands. By this time, Israel had only officially annexed the Golan Heights and the remainder of Jerusalem and some bordering neighborhoods unifying the city. After annexing the remainder of Jerusalem, Israel extended limited citizenship where they were permitted full rights within Israel with one simple restriction, they were not yet permitted to vote in national elections, only in local, Jerusalem elections. The remainder of the lands can only be taken from Israel under the condition that Israel officially relinquishes all claims to the land. This is why Gaza is now Hamastan and a terror enclave, Israel relinquished claims to Gaza turning it over to the Palestinian Authority (PA) under a grand plan of President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice by which the PA would be granted the opportunity to prove their ability to self-govern. Obviously, the grand experiment failed as the PA lost Gaza in a coup to Hamas and Islamic Jihad with criminal families and other terror groups.

 

Now Mahmoud Abbas will demand, that is demand and not ask, that the Security Council recognize and present him with all the remainder of land including the half of Jerusalem held by Jordan previously and intentionally countering President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem. Mahmoud Abbas does not expect to actually succeed, he just wants to force the United States to use their veto and appear to be the Israeli savior, or the Israeli puppet. Everyone knows what game Mahmoud Abbas is playing, but that does not matter, as those who wish to destroy Israel will use the American veto as proof that the rest of the world, the ones desiring the destruction of Israel, be those to decide the outcome of Israel’s future. This may even be an idea given Abbas by the European Union when he met with them the other week. They were not exactly the most gracious of hosts and sent him home without granting him the slightest assistance, at least not visibly. It is very possible that the European Union hierarchy told Abbas to take his game to a higher level, to take his game to the highest level, the world stage of the Security Council. The European Union likely informed him that he was wasting his time trying to force Israel to surrender and should simply take his plight to the one place where they could actually make him the President of Palestine with a nation with the grandest of boundaries. Granted, the Green Line to Abbas is still accepting a consolation prize as he foresees his nation replacing all of Israel. Still, to have the Security Council recognize a Palestinian state, even if all they do is order negotiations with Israel with a deadline for reaching an agreement or the Security Council will force an agreement, this would be a tremendous victory as now Abbas would just have to say no to every offer until the deadline and then plead his case again to his friends on the Security Council.

 

There is one thing which will be interesting is what each of the Ambassadors have to say during any deliberations. We know pretty much what most of them will be claiming, that Israel has stonewalled the negotiations and time has come to end the entire fiasco. The entire Security Council escapade Mahmoud Abbas is about to choreograph will closely resemble the Durban Conference of 2001 which devolved into an anti-Semitic orgy of dumping on Israel specifically and the Jewish People in general. Still, there will be one scathing retort to be delivered to the assembled should our fears be realized, and whatever United States Ambassador Nikki Haley will say to the assembled Security Council will be epic, we just pray it will also be stated publically.

Add the PLO to President Trump’s Dump List

 

President Trump has correctly placed Fatah, the PLO, Palestinian Authority, Palestinian Arabs, UNRWA and Mahmoud Abbas into one large single basket to be treated as a single entity. There are many advantages to this and no down side. Grouping these and basically labelling them Mahmoud Abbas links them all to their central mouthpiece and the person who controls the entirety of the Palestinian Arab acts, political, terrorist, monetarily, constructs, terror rewards, education, elections (or lack thereof) and decisions of any nature. This means that striking at any one of them is a means of striking Abbas or rewarding Abbas. The one with the slightest difference is UNWRA as it also strikes at the United Nations which often acts as another supporter of all things Mahmoud Abbas. President Trump and Mahmoud Abbas have been engaged in testosterone spitting contest trying to establish which one is the dominant one in their relations. The history of American and Palestinian Arab relationship has an interesting record, as most people would assume that the United States would be the dominant player. They would be very wrong in this assumption. Since the very beginning, the Palestinian Arabs have dictated the relationship constantly pushing the United States and each successive President to push the Israelis to constantly make concessions while receiving nothing in return. The relations have been excessively one-sided, especially since the signing of the Oslo Accords. Time and time again the Israelis were cajoled, threatened and even faced an embargo forcing them to give the Palestinian Arabs control over more lands, complete control over Gaza, Hevron, Bethlehem etcetera. This relationship has been utilized and exploited making Israel appear weak and unable to press their side and story over the claims made by the Palestinian Arabs to such an extent that now the world has taken the Palestinian Arab side against Israel fearing no retributions or dangers from these acts.

 

Under President Trump that has changed. Despite President Trump reading Mahmoud Abbas the riot act, Mahmoud Abbas refuses to believe that he can lose from ignoring the American President. Abbas is so used to getting his way if he simply presses forward and refuses to back down that he still thinks that President Trump can be forced into compliance with the Palestinian Arab politics. Since the Six Day War the Arabs, including specifically the Palestinian Arabs, have watched Israel return the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt for a piece of paper which was proven worthless during the time the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi were in office in Cairo and have not exactly become worth much more with President Sisi who has kept a very cold peace. The peace treaty with Jordan has resulted in little change in relations between the two nations with Jordanian media still printing much hateful, anti-Semitic, and anti-Israel articles and editorials. Israel was pressured by President Obama into apologizing to Turkey over the Mavi Marmara and paying the families of the terrorists who were killed in their attack attempting to break the Gaza embargo. Under George W. Bush Israel removed thousands of Jewish families from Gaza and turned the entirety over to the Palestinian authority under their word they would be nice and build a working relationship. They lied and never acted any differently and then lost in a coup that almost appeared to be a simple handover of Gaza to Hamas and Islamic Jihad resulting in three wars resulting from rocket assaults on Israeli civilians. These are just some examples of cases where the United States with President Willian Jefferson Clinton, President George W. Bush and President Barack Hussein Obama and their combined history of forcing Israel to surrender over and over again to the demands from Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him. Mahmoud Abbas has been rewarded for his stubborn refusal to negotiate unless given huge rewards just to sit down once with the Israeli leadership and then refusing to actually negotiate. He has pretty much assumed that a single camera opportunity each year or so which has satisfied every former President. Abbas expected President Trump to be no different from his predecessors and has seen some Presidents who initially supported Israel but sooner or later, they would pay the piper and cave to Palestinian Arab demands and forcing Israel to make concessions. Abbas is acting as if he has to prance for the first year and possibly two while President Trump enforces his Israel backing credibility before then turning and forcing Israel into making some serious concessions. Abbas is simply grinning and bearing the abuse expecting great rewards in the future.

That brings everything down to a simple question, will Trump resort to pressuring Israel into making concessions in order to be able to have at least one meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas in front of the White House or will he continue to try and force Abbas without resorting to pressuring Israel, like every President before. But perhaps there is some miscalculation by Mahmoud Abbas and President Trump actually means he stands with Israel. Even if President Trump and his team actually do stand with Israel, there is another piece to the puzzle which could be a wildcard, the State Department. The State Department has been antagonistic to Israel since its founding where they advised President Truman not to recognize the Jewish State. There have been many instances through the history of Israel where the State Department has been less than, how can we put this, helpful on affairs with Israel. It was the State Department and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who pressed for the Gaza evacuation and gifting to the Palestinians which led to Hamas taking control and caused a number of wars between Israel and the Arab terror groups in Gaza since the turnover. There is still a possibility that the State Department might pressure President Trump sufficiently over time until he finally pressures Israel under the State Department pressing that Israel has been unhelpful.

 

The current signs and indications are that President Trump believes, unlike previous administrations, that Israel has sacrificed far too much and should not be forced to sacrifice further. There have been indications that President Trump may be on the verge of closing the PLO offices in Washington D.C. This would be unprecedented but still might not be sufficient to force Mahmoud Abbas to change his attitudes. Abbas is so set in his ways and is not an honest partner and does not care what President Trump does because he also knows that at the longest period of eight years he will be done with President Trump if not sooner. Abbas does not even care if Vice President Pence were to follow President Trump and also serve a full two terms, he will not change his attitudes. Even should Abbas be replaced as the leader of the Palestinian Arabs, it will not change their attitudes or demands because the Palestinian Arabs themselves have been promised the end of Israel and will accept no less. The Palestinian Arab leadership, no matter who they may turn out to be after Abbas, will not accept anything less than Israel destroyed by the rest of the world including the United States in concert with the United Nations, European Union, European Nations, Arab world and every other nations on Earth and some also desire the Jews of the world all murdered as well. Of all the assumptions possibly made by Mahmoud Abbas, the most frightening is that all he need do is wait for the next favorable administration. The Palestinians are fully aware that if they are simply patient and refuse to meet Israel any percentage of the way, then eventually the world, including the United States, will sooner or later lean on Israel and force them to give the Arabs whatever they demand and by repeating this, they will destroy Israel in stages. The reality that this is probably an assumption that will prove true long before it may ever prove false, is sufficient reason for President Trump to be wise not to allow the Palestinian Arab threat to Israel to persist past his first term. One need remember that every President since Lyndon Banes Johnson has claimed to be the best friend which Israel has ever had in the White House, even including President Obama. We remember when President Obama was initially elected and a friend inquired what to expect concerning all things and we told him to expect President Carter on steroids and that this would be no truer than things concerning the Middle East. This friend had doubts that President Obama could outdo President Carter when it came to making trouble for Israel, especially all that President Carter has done since leaving the White House. We would hate to have to say this concerning a new President except putting in President Obama instead of President Carter, but there are those who would be worthy of such a warning. Whatever the case, President Trump should be warned not to allow any future President to be handed a Middle East where Israel is unfinished business, and that is the reality, the absolute reality.
