European Union’s Frederica Mogherini Speaks

 

European Union’s Foreign Policy Chief Frederica Mogherini has once again restated the position of the establishment she represents favoring the complete disruption of central Israel and sentencing much of the Israeli population to extinction. What did she say that would make us think this, you ask. Frederica Mogherini once again stated, “We always say that the Two State Solution is the only realistic one. I have not heard by anyone or from anyone, not only in the last weeks but in the last decades any other idea than two States to preserve Israeli security. The Palestinians need to have their own country under their own authority.” Obviously, she has never bothered listening to any of a number of Zionists, ourselves included. We have stated that we accept the original two state solution imposed in 1922 by the British Commonwealth where Trans-Jordan would be the Arab Palestinian State while west of the Jordan River Israel would be the nation for the Jewish Palestinians, Israel. We are aware that this was denoted long before Ms. Mogherini was born but this has been written about by numerous historians. While Ms. Mogherini probably studied classical subjects and political science along with other special studies such as proper speech writing and delivery but one would hope that as a foreign policy chief for the European Union she would be better versed in history, especially about things she portends to speak about presumably with any authority. Of course, the rest of the world’s foreign policy wonks and specialists suffer from the same disease as Ms. Mogherini when it comes to Israel, the main objective is its destruction. We have to give Ms. Mogherini credit because if her objective is the destruction of the Jewish State, then she has latched onto the perfect means of reaching that goal. So, for the sake of hoping to dislodge at least one thinking person from believing that Ms. Mogherini is brilliant and has the perfect solution, let us go through this once more.

The above picture tells the entirety of the original two state solution. The British were attempting the exact same concept which would later work so breathtakingly poorly with India and Pakistan. The idea is simple, take two incompatible people, give each their own area of land, separate the two lands into separate nations and presto-chango, two lands for two people living in peace and harmony. The reason it was probably tried with India and Pakistan was due to Trans-Jordan being established with such minimal violence and so few Arabs moving from the region remaining known as Palestine where the Palestinians were the Jews, repeat, the Palestinians were the Jews and the remaining Arab population was, remarkably, named the Arabs. The original concept was for these Arabs to move across the Jordan River to Trans-Jordan just as the few Jews residing in what became Trans-Jordan relocated within Palestine. What was mostly left unnoticed by the British was the small fact that the few Jews did not relocate entirely without provocations and threat of death had they remained. When Palestine was finally released from British control and was to be handed to the United Nations, who also wanted as little to do with the area as possible, the Jews prepared for independence at long last. Jordan had been separated from Palestine since 1921 and starting in 1946 was becoming the independent nation of Jordan under Hashemite Rule. Now was to come Palestine’s turn and freedom for what was presumed would be a nation of Jews except there were some problems.

 

For years, at the demands of the Arabs with whom the British had large dealings, not the least of which was J. Paul Getty and Getty Oil, later to become British Petroleum, the British and much of Europe was dependent heavily on Arab oil and thus carried the Arab water politically standing against Israel. Much of the Getty Oil claims were in Saudi Arabia and Iraq so these Arab states held heavy influence with Getty Oil and J. Paul Getty held quite a large influence in England as their wealthiest individual. When the Arabs pressed Britain and Getty, they received results. When the Saudis demanded that no Jewish State be established and the British pointed out that as long as there was no sizeable majority of Jews there could be no Jewish state, the Arab League under the auspices of the Saudi Royal Family and the Hashemite Kings in Iraq and Jordan with cooperation from the Arabs in French Syria provided as many Arabs as the British might possibly require while the British blocked further immigration by the Zionist Jews or even the Jews attempting to flee the Nazi killing machine. This resulted in horrific results for the European Jews as the Nazis systematically murdered millions as the British continued to refuse them entry into Palestine to satisfy their Arab friend’s demands. When Britain handed the control over to the United Nations informing them on the mid-day of May of the next year, May 15, 1948, the British were to pull out of Palestine and be done with their Mandate, this left the United Nations with a problem, how to get around ruling the unruly mess being left behind.

 

The United Nations, ignoring that the British Mandate had already been divided into two states for two people and the obvious resolution of paying or persuading the Arabs in Palestine to relocate to Jordan, as had occurred with Pakistan and India with some degree of violence but it all settled into glorious animosity. Instead, ignoring Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, decided to split the land again making two states for two people residing together apart. This was dividing the 22% that remained of the British Mandate once more onto another Arab state and a diminutive Jewish state. This was the infamous General Assembly Resolution 181 which divided the land granting the Jews mostly desert and some farmland, the Arabs gaining the choicest lands and Jerusalem as an isolated sphere of international rule by the United Nations surrounded by Arab held lands. That international zone would have lasted maybe a week or two. But there was a problem with Resolution 181 as far as the Arab League was concerned; it permitted the impermissible, a Jewish State. The Arab League turned the offer down immediately with a unanimous vote demanding that the entirety be made an Arab state promising they would treat the Jews fairly. This rejection, by United Nations laws, nullified Resolution 181, making it null and void, as if it had never been formulated and passed. That left the area to return to its previous designation as the future of the Jewish state with what was now Jordan as the Arab state as designed originally by the British.

 

The Jews prepared to establish their nation and try to rule a land which was almost evenly consisting of Arabs and Jews with a slight advantage for the Arab populations. This would be problematic at its best, but the Jews were going to have returned to their homelands and would do what was necessary to realize their dream of over two and a half centuries since the Assyrian conquest in 740 BCE. leaving only the kingdom of Judah as the ten tribes which made Israel became lost as they assimilated, followed by the Babylon Exile in 586 BCE. with one brief sliver of hope during the Hasmonean period when they had briefly thrown off foreign rule only to fall before the Romans. They had waited through the Assyrian Rule, Babylonian Exile, Persian Rule, Greek Rule, Polemic Grecian Rule, Assyrian Grecian Rule, Roman Rule, the Roman version of the Final Solution of dispersion throughout and beyond the extremes of the Empire, a system which had forced many a people to become extinct as a people and a nation of which the Carthaginians (formerly the Phoenicians who had warred with the Jewish state for centuries) were probably the most famous simply because their name remains to this day. How many smaller and less significant tribes and peoples did the Romans pave over and send into the forgotten memory of history is unknown. This was their intention with the Judeans, now simply referred to as Jews. These Jews went through pogroms, inquisitions, purifications, forced conversion and had finally struggled to survive and were to reestablish their ancient homelands, or at least those areas west of the Jordan River as Hashem had promised them almost four-thousand years earlier in a promise to Abraham and reaffirmed with Isaack and again with Yaakov then told of to Moses and fell before Joshua. The Jewish People were perched to be reestablished in their land from which they had been uprooted, not all, as there were always those Jews who had remained throughout history in these lands mostly in Hevron and Jerusalem and the surrounding hills and plains.

 

On the morning of May 15, 1948 as the British made a hasty a retreat to the port of Tel Aviv to leave the lands permanently, the lands have been returned to the original division as picture in our map. The 78% of the British Mandate defined as the lands east of the Jordan River are the Arab homelands for those Arabs who resided in the British Mandate and the remaining 22% defined as the lands west of the Jordan River are to become the Jewish state that morning. The Arab League and Six Arab armies along with various contingents and militias were perched on every border of the soon to be Jewish state and when the sun rose and Israel had been declared the evening before, as the Jewish day begins at sunset of the evening before, these Arab forces attacked. Logic and any military prediction would have claimed that the nascent state of Israel was heading to becoming the shortest-lived nation in history. Somehow, the resistance forces the Jews had formed to try and persuade the British to leave managed, over the next year and a half, to hold out against the invading Arab forces and were starting to get the upper hand. The Jews were potentially about to take the entirety of their homelands back and defeat these Arab forces; the world stepped in and froze the lines forcing an armistice so as to deny the possible victory of the Jews. This was the formation of the Green Line which the Arab League demanded could never be considered or used as the demarcation for a border. Egypt retained the Gaza Strip and Jordan actually renamed Judea and Samaria as something less historically tied to the Jews choosing West Bank. These were regions Israel lost in an illegal offensive Arab war against the Jewish State and thus Gaza and the West Bank were illegally occupied.

 

In 1967, the Egyptians and Syrians massed forces on the northern and southern borders and threatened to annihilate the Jews. We believe the actual threat was, they were going to drive the Jews into the Sea. Egypt had also once again closed the Straights of Tiran to Jewish ships thus blockading the port at Eilat and a legal declaration of hostilities and casus belli. This meant the United Arab Republic as Egypt and Syria had actually formed a super state known as the United Arab Republic or UAR which was now in a state of war with Israel. Israel demanded for over a week for the blockade to be lifted making requests of the United Nations which were voted down or ignored, asked for European or American assistance only to find a deaf ear to their plight. Finally, Israel had enough, with shipments destined for Africa and Asia backed up, as Egypt denied Israel use of the Suez Canal thus making Eilat the African and Asian port for goods and for Israel, vital trade links. Israel launched air attacks on the Egyptian Air Force catching most of the planes still on the tarmac. They also launched at the Syrian Air Bases. This caught the Arab forces off guard as they expected Israel to simply continue to cry to the world until her economy would die and Israel itself soon thereafter. Despite Israel streaming into the Sinai Peninsula and storming over the Golan Heights, both Egyptian and Syrian radio and television were broadcasting about the great victory being won and how soon they would have both forces meeting in central Tel Aviv. Reality, Gaza lost to the Israelis, Golan Heights in Israeli hands and their starting towards Damascus, the Sinai Peninsula stormed over and being taken and position along the Suez Canal with an entire Egyptian Army surrounded and surrendering and Arab radio and television coverage claiming Israel was losing badly and the Jews proving scared and surrendering in droves. Well, King Abdullah of Jordan was not about to miss out on the victory of a lifetime and he wanted his piece of Israel and Tel Aviv so he stated an intention to assist. Egypt and Syria were welcoming another front hoping that would break the Israeli ability to continue the fight. Israel sent the King pictures of Israeli forces inside the Sinai and Golan Heights and tried to convince him he was about to make a fateful mistake begging him to remain on the sidelines. King Abdullah listened to the Israeli pleadings and figured they were losing and lying to him, as they were scared, so he launched an attack on Western Jerusalem and tried to break out of the West Bank. The Israelis ordered a large reinforcing column of armor and infantry which was heading south towards the Sinai Peninsula to turn left and head for Jerusalem and the West Bank consisting of Judea and Samaria. Soon the Israelis were praying at the Western Wall and the Temple Mount as well as all of East Jerusalem and soon reached the Jordan River. Six days and the Jews were still advancing and the promised Arab slaughter did not materialize and the Arab ultimate commander, Gamal Abdel Nasser, President of Egypt and the UAR, demanded that the world end this Jew surprise attack on the innocent Arab world. The world rushed to support his request and the lines were firmed.

 

The Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights were lands taken as the result of a defensive and legal war to defend the nation of Israel which meant they could be annexed by Israel and were not required to be returned. The Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria were liberated from illegal occupations and rightfully belong to Israel. Of this, there is no argument and their return to Israeli rule would be recognized by any of the International Courts. This is why the Arabs do not enter into these courts to demand their rights, they are quite aware that they are on the losing legal end of this fight, so they have made it into a struggle for national rights for an imaginary peoples. To back their claims they took Jewish history and patched themselves into the position of being the Jews and simply claimed that Jewish history was actually their history and that the Jews stole their rightful history in order to trick the world into giving them these stolen lands. They claim that the Jews have done such a masterful job of replacing the rightful Arab owners of these lands that they have even tainted the historical records and that Josephus was writing about the Arabs but Jew translators bastardized the texts and that all historical documents have been similarly altered and reality shows that Abraham, Kings David and Solomon, Moses, Noah, and even Adam were all Muslims and followed Islam and worshipped Allah and the Jewish and Christian Bibles are forgeries copied from the true Quran which was written thousands of years later through Muhammad, an illiterate person living presumably in Mecca. Stories do not get much more twisted and illogical than that but the world does everything they are able to pretend right along with their Arab friends that that is exactly what had happened and that the Jews tricked the world again, just as they always have, and usurped an entire people’s lands.

 

The truth, Ms. Frederica Mogherini, the European Union’s Foreign Policy Chief, is the lands east and west of the Jordan River were initially intended to become the Jewish State. Truthfully, the Zionist Congress, under slight duress, did sign away the 78% of the lands east of the Jordan River to become Trans-Jordan and thus have no claim. The area you like to call the West Bank belonged to Israel and was actually Judea and Samaria, and it would be difficult to find some way of claiming that Judea belongs rightfully to anybody other than the Jews, but Jordan gave it that lovely new and imaginative name of West Bank and the world adopted that phrasing permanently as if it was simply so logical and rolled off the tongue so smoothly. The Gaza Strip became simply Gaza and Egypt simply occupied it and allowed Egyptians and others to reside there without regard for right or wrong. Still, all 22% of the lands west of the Jordan were rightfully belonging to the Jews and Israel. Just because Muslim rulers held the lands, the longest of all the conquerors means little against over two thousand years of the land belonging to the Jews and recognized as such by all of history until the year 722 AD, a short spurt in history.

 

Since Israel came into existence on May 15, 1948, Israel gained the Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula as well as Lebanon south of the Litani River (the original boundary of the tribes of Israel) through responding to wars and other legal means. Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula, an area many multiples the size of Israel, but still returned them to Egypt for peace; but Egypt, realizing what a pain ruling Gaza would be for Israel, relinquished any claim to those lands. When Israel made their peace with Jordan, the former occupier and illegal annexing power and forced populating and gifting of the lands within conquered lands in an offensive war, was still offered back its illegally held Israeli lands which the Jordanians refused thus returning them to Israeli rule. Here is where it gets interesting. Israel was instructed by the United Nations to retain those lands required to provide Israel with secure and defendable borders and return that which Israel determined unnecessary for proper defense of the nation with a proviso that Israel was to return lands, simply lands, not all the lands, not most of the lands (which Israel actually did anyways returning the Sinai Peninsula), not even significant parts, nor any reference to recognized sections or to establishing a new Arab land with any or all parts of the lands attained in a defensive war. Now all of this is unusual and strange as when a nation is attacked, and Israel was attacked, they become the aggrieved nation granting them certain rights of which the most advantageous is that should they lose lands they get them back and the original border is reestablished and they might even petition and be favorably considered to additional lands and restitution for losses but should they have gained lands as the result of their defending themselves, they may, at their discretion, retain any part or the whole of these lands as they see fit to satisfy any national interest. Simply stated, Israel could have chosen to retain all these lands within legal findings of International Law.

 

So, Israel was required to return some part of the lands acquired from the 1967 and 1973 forced defensive wars from aggression against her by the Arab powers. The Sinai Peninsula qualifies as land no matter who looks at it. But still the world pretends that Israel still owes lands to the Arabs simply because the Arabs are claiming they are due lands. They claim that Palestine was meant for them and they mean Palestine as pictured in our map. Israel has decided they will retain the Golan Heights which are an obvious defensive position which will make that border secure for Israel but there are those calling for Israel to return the heights to Syria, we ask what Syria. There are accusations that Israel has attempted to annex eastern Jerusalem. The truth is Israel unified Jerusalem returning it to what it should always have been, a single city with one government chosen by its citizens, and the Arabs residing in Eastern Jerusalem are now limited Israeli citizens receiving all rights except full political rights though they have been permitted the vote in local elections, a political right, just not national elections as of yet, also a political right which are not guaranteed as are all other rights such as religion, work, financial, shelter, food and others. The stipulation that non-Jews may be denied political rights or granted limited political rights is written within the Balfour Declaration which was codified by the San Remo Conference and a whole string of other items leading to the Mandate System which was supported by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Legally, Israel owns Judea and Samaria (West Bank) but has relinquished their claims to Gaza which they signed over to the Palestinian Authority who subsequently lost the area to Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and Iranian influences.

 

So, Israel no longer can claim Gaza, owns Judea and Samaria and annexed thus extended rule over the Golan Heights. So, the world can stomp their while holding their breath and turning blue, the Arabs can demand Israel turn over all of Palestine while chanting, ‘From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free’ and nothing will be altered. If there is yet another inane and insane pressuring of Israel to enact the two state solution, they should simply enforce the original two state solution and deport the Arab squatters just as the Arabs did with Jordan plus Egypt, Algeria, Iraq, the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia and are currently enforcing in Yemen. Israel should grant quiet support for the Palestinian Arab independence movement which desires to replace the Monarchal rule in Jordan and install a democratic state while granting the King and his supporters their own state and respecting the peace treaty with Israel. Israel is supportive of any move by the Kurdish People to reestablish their homelands of Kurdistan on as large a portion of their homelands as they can grasp. Unlike the Arab Palestinians, the Kurdish People have a very wonderful history which includes references to them by Greek and Roman historians. Finally, the world needs to obsess with numerous other real problems and leave Israel to negotiate with the Arabs and find a settlement which will benefit the people and give them responsible leaders. Simply allowing the people, the Arabs, to leave if they chose would partially solve the problem as now if one attempts to leave, their family becomes threatened forcing their return. The Arab-Israeli conflict is simply the most recent tool the world is using to try and destroy the Jewish People and their state of Israel. With the troubles around the globe, one would believe that Israel should not be at the top of everyone’s agenda. It is as the Bible states, “I will make Jerusalem a stone of burden for all peoples; all who bear it shall be gashed, and all the nations of the earth shall gather about it… And it shall come to pass on that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come upon Jerusalem.” In the end, Jerusalem stands as the Capital City of the Jewish State of Israel. That is simply enough to understand, Jerusalem lives, Israel lives, the Jewish People live and their enemies in these final times do not fare as well. That is the story.

As North Korean Missiles Fly Tillerson Lies

 

We made a poor calculation, or so it seems. We had predicted, “somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas Kim Jong-un will announce he has had it with the American double-dealing and perversity and lies and return to firing missiles.” Apparently, Kim Jong-un did not even wait for Labor Day as on Saturday North Korea launched a set of short-range ballistic missiles and on Tuesday fired another missile, this time over the Islands of Japan. The series of missile firing came just days after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson welcomed North Korea’s recent “restraint” suggested talks with Pyongyang may be possible “in the near future,” (Watch video below). Tillerson stated in response to the North Korean provocations that the missiles were a “provocative act” adding that the United States would continue to search for a peaceful solution. This is where we question whether or not Secretary of State Tillerson may be going off the rails concerning Kim Jong-un and North Korea as compared to his stances on Israel, Kurdistan and the Arab World’s general offensive along with Iran and Turkey against the world, specifically the Western World.

 

 

Secretary Tillerson, it has been noted in conjecture, has been the driving force driving the Administration’s suspicions and commentary against the Kurdish intentions to vote for a referendum to declare their independence from Iraq and form their formerly promised state of Kurdistan before the British reneged on their promise. The Secretary of State has also been a consistent thorn in the side of relations with Israel. The problems with Israel do not rise to the level that the relations with the Kurds have reached, but Israel has her independence already. Still, having Secretary of State Tillerson constantly promoting policies which reflect the Arabist views of the world in general and the views of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, or potentially Mecca and more appropriately, Medina, is wearing thin as it flies in the face of policies which would be to the advantage of the United States specifically and the free world generally.

 

We understand that the apparent assignment for the State Department is to play Devil’s advocate and oppose what would be right and best for the United States. This was evidenced when they sent a communist group to assist in writing the United Nations Charter and gave the Soviets advantages at every corner. It was further established with their strong advice to President Truman not to recognize Israeli independence, good thing he ignored their advice. Now they are advising the United States deny nationhood to the strongest and closest ally existing in the war on the Islamic State, the only group to have large success in driving the Islamic State from northern Syria, the peoples whom the United States has been arming and Israel has given tactical assistance yet the State Department claims they are unworthy of statehood as that would detract from Iraqi sovereignty and weaken Iran. We seem to remember some commentary about knocking Iran down a peg or two and rewriting parts of the deal with Iran over nuclear research into nuclear weaponry and the processing of uranium by President Trump. Apparently, Secretary Tillerson is concerned about what effect a Kurdish State might have on Iraq and Iran and very likely the Islamic State and Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

 

These steps come in addition to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson making some antagonizing noise over Israeli “settlements” referring to legally built communities and cities according to the Oslo Accords stipulations while ignoring illegal building by the European Union along with the Arabs in Area C against every stipulation concerning this region by the Oslo Accords. It has become apparent that Secretary of State Tillerson and his State Department have decided once again to adopt the Arab revisionism of the Oslo Accords in which Israel has no right to Jerusalem, Akko, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tiberius, Eilat, Beersheba and Tel Aviv. This had been the interpretation of the final settlement according to Yasser Arafat and has been adopted by Mahmoud Abbas and the PA and apparently also adopted by Secretary Tillerson in spirit if not in its entirety. Such sophomoric, treacherous and toxic advice can only embolden Abbas and the Arabs to avoid direct negotiations and in its stead demand concessions from Israel which Secretary Tillerson and the State Department will very likely pressure Israel to concede, as they always have, regardless of the position of President Trump or his Middle East envoy Jared Kushner and President Trump’s International Negotiator Jason Greenblatt which appears to be more open ended. While President Trump’s team has stated clearly an Administration position of no preconditions, preconceptions, or premonitions of the design of a solution, the State Department with a few worthy exceptions appears to be backing the continued failings of the “two-state-solution” directly in opposition to all other, including their own, efforts.

 

Secretary Tillerson also came out expressly against Kurdish independence. One would be following logic and good sense if they were to conclude from previous indications such as the United States arming of the Kurds in Syria and in warning off Turkey’s Erdoğan, who had started a general campaign militarily against the Kurds in Syria and Iraq, thus protecting Kurdish interests, that the Administration would back the concept of a new country named Kurdistan where the Kurds could fulfil their destiny free of tyrannical and counter productive interference from Baghdad. We would and have gone further in suggesting a greater Kurdistan which would span across northeastern Syria, northern Iraq and northwestern Iran and for allowing Kurds from outside the area, from Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran in particular, to return to their newly reestablished homelands free from outside influences or policies. The Kurds were another indigenous group which had been promised a return to their homelands and a freely established state after World War I and the divisions of the great empires of Austro-Hungary, German (which had included Poland within its borders) and Ottoman. One might be led to believe that Turkey would desire such a nation as a place they could force their Kurdish minority to emigrate and end their fears of Kurdish revolt but Erdoğan envisions a greater Turkey which would envelop the Kurdish regions and then the Kurds would be facing a similar fate than that of the Armenians under Ottoman rule. One can only wonder where Secretary Tillerson stands on the ideas of a greater Turkey or a hegemonic Iran which would include much of Iraq plus all of Syria and Lebanon (see concept map below). Greater Turkey would include areas of Syria and Iraq which the Kurds desire for their homelands and extend slightly beyond before they would run into Iranian Shiite opposition but would include Sunni areas of Iraq. Hegemonic Iran would incorporate much of Iraq and Syria plus all, if not beyond, Lebanon, Oman, Yemen, Djibouti and Qatar thus surrounding Saudi Arabia and Jordan who would be thrust together potentially being forced into having relations with Israel. The greater question would be how far along the coast of the Horn of Africa Iran might spread and whether or not Jordan would invite Saudi Arabian protection as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (included in map).

 

Greater Turkey and Hegemonic Iran In Faceoff to Control Middle East

Greater Turkey and Hegemonic Iran
In Faceoff to Control Middle East

 

Our guess of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reacting to such a map as depicted would be outrage that Israel would take control of the lands actually promised her by the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the Treaty of Lausanne, the Mandate System, the Conventions of the League of Nations and Article 80 of the United Nations Charter making these treaties and the entirety of their implications, promises, stipulations and implications all enforced by the United Nations. He would likely view at such a point as this that Israel rightfully belonged to Saudi Arabia as the British Mandate of Jordan had been included under Saudi protective rule, why not the remaining 22% of the British Mandate. He would question, with the support of the deep state of the State Department, the protestations expressed by the Israelis and would ignore the religious implications and what would verily happen should Israeli citizens ever come under Muslim or Arab rule. Secretary Tillerson would likely read some missive from the Saudi Royals which would be presented as their guarantee of protection for the Jews of Israel as they are People of the Book (أهل الكتاب) and as such a protected class of Dhimmis. He would infer that Dhimmis meant honored guests and a protected group as stated and would ignore the horrid rumors about the Jews being Kāfir (كافر) and thus could be subjected to the choice of convert to Islam or die without ever compromising their Dhimmitude.

 

Allow us to end with a beseechment to the leading advisors and their coordination impairment and the confusion, embarrassment and detriment they have caused. Please, President Trump and especially Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, Four Star Marine General (ret), clean up the imbroglio which is the President’s Cabinet. First and foremost, determine who amongst them are capable of supporting a single set of ideas and ideals and are willing to cooperate, then be rid of the rest. Next, sit them all down and play for them the main points President Trump promised to accomplish while campaigning. Then ask who would not be capable of not only supporting but actively engaging all their energies to accomplish whatever tasks they may receive to get these things accomplished. Those who appear even the slightest to delay and especially those who cough, hem and haw, be done with them and receive not their counsel. Lastly, ask each Secretary to submit plans to, first, restructure their department, second, cut their department staffing by a minimum of fifty percent, and lastly, to dissolve their department entirely and advising where critical actions could be best served. Then meet with the President and go through these plans and decide which departments need to implement which plan. Just as a starter, may we suggest you get rid of Educations Department, Homeland Security Department; half or more of the law enforcement bureaus starting with BTFE, and have the State Department reduce its staff by fifty percent, at least twice. Advice for President Trump, ignore much of the noise which erupts regularly from the State Department, as often doing the opposite of what they advise is the best move.

Time to End Minhal Ezrachi and COGAT

 

Both Minhal Ezrachi (Civil Administration) and COGAT (Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories) are obsolete, counterproductive, anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and well beyond their use-by-date. They both were established during the heady and oft wrong-headed days after the Six Day War designed to administrate over the formerly Jordanian occupied lands, illegal under every last line of applicable International Law and solely recognized by Pakistan and Britain, with the potential purpose to permit their ready status to be traded with Jordan in exchange for a peace treaty. Well, Israel has her peace treaty and Jordan renounced their false claims thus the reverting of these lands of Judea and Samaria back to their rightful owner under applicable International Law, Israel. That should have been the end of the story and Israel should have annexed these lands legally registering the residents as resident alien citizens granting them limited political rights within the areas they constitute a majority but barring them from national elections until a means, path and completion of becoming Israeli citizens was accomplished. Those refusing such should have been encouraged to emigrate even to the point of bribery. That, after peace was reached with Jordan would have been the end of the issue.

 

Instead, Minhal Ezrachi, COGAT, the elite ranking officers with the Minister of Defense (or without if need be) plus the Supreme Court backed by a core set of Ministers of the Knesset from both sides of the aisle all support the status-quo. All of these disparate entities have a stake in this game as it extends their control over the lives of the littler people starting with the Israelis residing in Judea and Samaria and continuing through the remainder of the population. There are any numbers of reasons this fiasco which could be resolved and settled once and for all is instead perpetrated indefinitely. Most of the players are fiercely guarding their power to control people and areas plus retaining their well-paid positions as commanders in the IDF and their path to the highest echelons and beyond into politics or a cushy job once they retire from serving in the IDF. These are careerists more than soldiers who claim they know what is best in Judea and Samaria constantly painting the area as fraught with dangers with a wild-west kind of vibe where only the Military keeps things from worsening. They also prevent change and thus progress to a solution. They see their responsibility to extend a situation in such a manner such that the IDF continues to rule the area, specifically the Israeli or, more accurately, the Jewish Israelis always calling for additional soldiers and funding as everything is forever escalating with just the right inclusion of progress which becomes erased and any freedoms further curtailed at every terrorist strike.

 

The Supreme Court simply is chasing that perfect society as they envision Israel. They view Israel quite differently than the average Israeli. The Supreme Court is largely a political dinosaur from the 1950’s Israel as the Supreme Court is largely, along with the position of State Attorney General, a self-replicating monster which perpetuates the socialist utopianism of the original court with extreme leftists all with minimal numbers as exceptions. They would feel at home on the Haaretz Editorial Board. They could best be described as Universalists and post-Zionists. They believe in Israeli democracy over Israel as the Jewish Homeland which they view as too exclusive; and they are multiculturalists as well as ultimate protectors of the human rights for everyone and even more so the determined underclass, in Israel’s case, the Palestinian Arabs. The Supreme Court Justices treasure their acceptance by the elite of Europe, particularly the leading government figures and the elite of the European Union. The Justices crave the approval of these leaders and paragons of human rights, post-modernism, multiculturalism and, of course, internationalism which call for the erasure of borders and above all the acceptance of the other who while having been raised under oppressions existing from their past treatment at the hands of the Western World and whose culture is equal if not superior to the Judeo-Christian, never to mention Jewish culture described and laid out in Torah, and must be not only accepted but treated with respect denied Western Culture. These are open border with state guaranteed wage, a combination long proven to be the views adopted just before the fall of near countless civilizations throughout history.

 

What makes all of this far more theater of the absurd than simple fiasco is for reasons unknown Jordanian law is enforced in Judea and Samaria by the IDF as directed by COGAT and the Minhal Ezrachi backed by the Supreme Court and allowed such insanity by the powers on both sides in the Knesset with a few select exceptions. Observing Jordanian Law is anti-Semitic as selling land to a Jew is punishable by death and simply being a Jew on land under Jordanian law is illegal punishable by deportation to Israel within the Green Line, the apparent intent of numerous NGO’s and much of the Muslim world plus the rest of the planet with few exceptions, or death. By observing Jordanian Law it was thought it would facilitate the return to Jordanian occupation. This was despite knowing that the Jordanian occupation was outright illegal as the border between Jordan and Israel was set as the Jordan River in so many treaties including but not limited to the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the ,a href=https://beyondthecusp.wordpress.com/treaty-of-lausanne/ target=blank>Treaty of Lausanne amongst others which culminated World War I as well as Article 80 of the United Nations Carter which further codified the Mandate System. These treaties give Israel first right to all of Judea and Samaria as well as voiding any and all of the land grant provisions by which leading members of the Jordanian government and friends of the King were granted deed to great stretches of these lands such that all the lands were gifted in this manner and largely was never developed. These land claims are utilized by NGO’s such but not limited to Peace Now, Yesh Din and Rabbis for Human Rights to sue any and all Israeli building in Judea and Samaria. These demolitions brought on through the Supreme Court by direct filing these NGO’s attack Jewish buildings from a single stand-alone home to entire cities such as Amona, which is currently under threat, as well as other “Jewish settlements” which are considerably larger and more developed (see picture below). Direct filing with the Supreme Court is legal and done in this case so that the liberal, left-leaning Supreme Court Justices can rule without requiring any investigation into the legality or even existence of actual Arab ownership. Evidence is taken as if vetted and verified thus these NGO’s need no tangible proof and an entire city can be ordered erased. When cases are filed to actually claim the land in court, many such cases are resigned from the docket before even a hearing as the claimant has withdrawn knowing the entire claim to be bogus.

Larger Jewish Settlement Under Threat of Demolitions

 

Many of these NGO’s including those licensed and claiming to be homegrown pro-Israel groups are part of a post-Zionist, leftist, universalist groups which are all predominantly financed by European, American and other Western and Universalist entities receiving often less than one-third and some next to no funding originating in Israel. Some of the monies come from individuals directly, surreptitiously or through front groups or organizations; more from individual governments who also use other NGO’s to put distance, deniability and insulation between them and the monies; and some is funneled through the long and many tentacles of the United Nations and its various groups which are more money laundering operations than anything else. While almost every nation in this so-called civilized world has laws disallowing NGO’s from obtaining majority funding from outside the nation, some requiring well above half be domestically raised, whenever Israel proposes such a law the Europeans and American leftists, progressives and far right haters of Jews and Israel rise and make a cacophony of cries of complaints, screams of unfairness, yelping that democracy is under attack, squawking that freedom is being curtailed and other hooting and hollering over any-and-everything under the son being squelched and a fascism rising in Israel. All these accusations are made to prevent Israel having the same protections these other nations enjoy. This demanding Israel meet a standard not required of other nations has a name, anti-Semitism. Some claim it is anti-Zionism while others anti-Israel in the occupation, but all three are identical, demanding the Jew, the Jewish State, Israel to be judged by a different set of rules designed for the destruction and dismantling of the national home of the Jews. Yep, that is anti-Semitism.

 

Finally, much of this is the Israeli leadership’s fault. That includes all the leadership; the IDF, the Supreme Court, the media and especially Knesset and political hierarchy. The Knesset and political hierarchy could annex all of Area C with a simple bill with the only thing potentially blocking such a move would be the Supreme Court claiming it had some reason to belay and void the legislation passed by the Knesset. The way beyond that would be change a couple of punctuation and pass the legislation again and again and make it the biggest thing since Jews ate manna in the wilderness and allow the majority to get behind the idea and carry the day. Then Israel could city by city set up local governance for the Arab Palestinians, the former Jordanians, the Arabs holding other than legal Israeli passports; grant them semi-autonomy over the areas where they reside but keep them barred from general elections until they decide and take a path to citizenship. Emigration enticement with assistance in the form of a buyout of property with an added percentage for a clear deed should be Israeli policy including a records check to assure the land was not sold or belonging to another Jordanian/Palestinian Arab or other party. Even in such cases some form of emigration enticement should be in order. Emigrants must be made aware that any unauthorized return within Israeli borders will be dealt with harshly followed by an immediate deportation after prison sentence has been carried out. Israel honestly will by necessity have to annex these lands as soon as Hamas or Islamic State takes over after any remotely free elections. The Palestinian Authority (PA) is mortally wounded and entering its death throes. Abbas is entering the tenth or eleventh year of a five year term. Elections were once again cancelled; the PA had cancelled elections numerous times since their scheduled date of spring of 2009. Law and order is breaking down and radical Islamists are banding together and arming for whoever decides they want the base of operations so close to the heart of Israel. The time to act was actually immediately after the Six Day War with another opportunity immediately after Jordan made peace with Israel. Unfortunately, the Knesset and political hierarchy will continue dragging their feet and claiming that acting is impossible and need wait until the climate changes for the better. We’ve watched the world climate towards and concerning Israel and here have noted climate change and it has been the worst. Time has come to let the dust fly and settle where it will. Waiting has ceased to be the answer. There are six days before the Presidential Election in the United States after which President Barack Hussein Obama will be free to call a special session and pass a binding resolution negating all recognition currently existing for annexation of Judea and Samaria by the Security Council passing a Section Seven Resolution establishing the Palestinian State with the Green Line as its border and the whole of Eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Such a binding resolution would alter International Law possibly forever and would establish and likely add as a full member the new nation of Palestine. This is why action must be decided now and no delay must be permitted. The power to do so lies with the Knesset and the IDF could assist by working to prevent and end their assisting circumventing and neutering Israelis’ rights to settle our land. If we wait, we lose.
