COVID Fixation, the Real Disease

I have to be honest and confess I have no idea about what people are so fearful. Initially I accepted a level of paranoia resulting from governmental fear campaigns. I expected time would be a cure but I was dead wrong. Time passed and still people obsess about masks, even here in Israel where the population has one of the highest levels of vaccinated people. I have recently witnessed people wearing masks while jogging, bicycle riding and out shopping alone. I responded to the mask obsession by declaring my residence a “No Mask Zone.” Needless to add, the vast majority of our friends received this reclamation of normal. Unfortunately, my declaration has not appeared to had much effect outside my doors. Fortunately, nobody has insisted I wear a mask even inside more than once, as it usually has no effect. But there are some whose actions have never failed to amuse us.

Covid-19 Virus

The best amusement comes from the political class. President Biden exited Air Force 1 wearing his mask and removed said mask at the bottom right before doing a meet and greet with waiting dignitaries. Another regular is Speaker Pelosi being caught attempting to sneak her mask on when caught maskless and in a group. But there is one item spreading in the United States that closes on suicidal, mask mandates. We pray such does not spread into our little corner of the world. Personally, I would have to hibernate or reach an exception at places which desired my attendance or business. But not providing exemptions for those who have survived COVID and have natural immunity, which has been proven vastly superior to the semi-effective vaccine even with boosters, is simply crazy. Boosters probably every four to six months, is another broken promise. Remember two weeks to flatten the curve? Then it was two shots for effective vaccine that now requires boosters. We should all hope there are no more two of anything for the good of the world, as so far they have a lousy record. This sickness will continue, and I do not mean COVID but COVID fear-struck individuals, until all of us refuse to fear a virus which has almost run its course. For anyone who requires something to fear, the Chinese have another virus which is projected not to have merely a one percent death rate like COVID but an eighty percent death rate and it is in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. We hope that Anthony Fauci and NIAID did not finance this virus as well and that the lab remains isolated from the rest of us. We hope and pray, seeking a more sane world.

Israel in the News


Recently we received reports from around Europe and the United States informing us about the way Israel was being represented in political and other types of talk shows and other editorial musings. From what was being reported one would be led to believe that Israel assaulted Gaza without any provocations and were targeting selectively civilian targets. These opinion people referred to the rockets launched by Hamas and Islamic Jihad as purely defensive and targeting the Israeli positions. Such provocatively false accusations were, to say the least, quite upsetting. Apparently, the suffering by Israeli civilians in the southern communities close to the Gaza border to as far as Ashdod and Ashkelon and inland reaching close to Be’er Sheva is inconsequential. These were the targets of the seven-hundred plus rockets fired out of Gaza with the first half fired in such rapid succession as to only be possible if they were part of a coordinated attack. All of the rockets came far closer to civilian targets than to any military targets. Of course one would need to understand that to Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the plethora of anti-Israel enemies and other foes including numerous terrorist groups, Iran and apparently the mainstream Western media, for all of these a newborn baby in a carriage is considered a military target just as are senior citizens for the simply reasoning that should Israel be left fighting for her life, the baby may be old enough and the senior citizens frightened enough that all would take up arms in her defense. That makes them military targets according to the enemies of Israel. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ledger, every last individual Arab is a civilian casualty which can be prepared for the media to take their pictures to splash across front-pages everywhere depicting proof of Israelis targeting civilians. Never mind that the terrorists do not wear uniforms and when a terrorist is shot during battle, once their weapon, head bandanna, grenades, munitions and possibly one or two more items have been taken and given to their replacement, that leaves what can be photographed as a civilian casualty as he has no weapons or other things which might show that they were actually a combatant. For the record, this article lists the actual origins of the majority of those who died in Gaza as a result of the rocket barrage initiated from Gaza upon Israel.


The most damaging report was of a woman and her infant child which were claimed to be victims of the Israeli response to the onslaught upon Israel. Fortunately, Israeli defensive systems track every rocket, missile, mortar, artillery and other objects which come within its tracking. The mother and her child were actually the result of a misfire of an Islamic Jihad rocket which they finally admitted after Israel produced the tracking of the projectile which struck them. The problem is producing the tracking and enduring that the information can be verified by more than one radar station takes some time and then to get an admission from the terrorists takes even longer. By that time the news had reported around the world about how Israel murdered an innocent child and her mother which in many Western media was the lead story. Once the truth was revealed and Islamic Jihad forced to admit they had fired the fateful rocket, well, that piece of news simply fell between the cracks and all it accomplished was the talking heads stopped accusing Israel of this tragedy but they never retracted nor corrected their initial exuberant claims that Israel had murdered a child and mother. This has been the normal operating procedure of the media across the world and especially in Europe and the rest of the Western leftist media. So, we had media initially claiming that Israel initiated the exchange between Gaza and the southern regions in Israel. This was soon backed up with the story about the Mother and child being killed presumably by Israel. The initial report that Israel fired first was claimed because Hamas stated that they had not fired upon Israel. Great, did anybody care to ask Islamic Jihad or any of the other terrorist entities who have nested in Gaza. Of course, they had not, that would have been doing a thorough and complete job of investigative reporting. But when your aim is to vilify Israel, the only time you would question Islamic Jihad is if Hamas admitted they fired first, then if Islamic Jihad can report that they were fired upon first, then Israel obviously attacked Gaza. Blaming Israel first and foremost has become the mainstay of Western reporting and when they are proven to have been wrong, then they might quietly admit their error at three in the morning or on page C-56 of the next day’s paper. Editorialists do not even admit they were mistaken and many continue claiming that Israel fired first even when they have been proven to be wrong. Why they do this is because that is what many of their listeners desire hearing, how the Jews, Israel, is a monster targeting innocent people in their attempts to start to take over the world.


There are two things which many in Israel are reaching the end of their rope concerning, the terrorists and others threatening our extinction and the news presenting the reasons that such would benefit the world. We could easily list the things that without Israel would either have taken years longer to be invented, cures and medical procedures, defensive systems which protect people and vehicles from attack, agricultural techniques and hybrid plants which allow water savings plus we could go on for quite some time, but such things do not impress those who have already decided that Israel must be at fault. Israel is the new target for anti-Semitism. This does not mean to claim that old fashion anti-Semitism no longer exists, that is all too prevalent even if it is mostly overlooked by the news. We included two videos taken from a single day’s reporting showing two attacks upon Jews, one in New York City area and the other in Berlin. But the insanity of the world demanding for Israel to commit suicide reach some of the highest offices on the planet. This gem comes from the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay who insists that Israel provide Iron Dome for Gaza because Gaza is occupied by Israel and thus it is up to Israel to provide equal protection in Gaza as it does in Israel. Could somebody please bring this poor unfortunate woman up to speed that Israel left Gaza by mid-September of 2005 removing eight-thousand Jews and all IDF forces leaving the region to be developed by the Palestinian Authority who lost it to Hamas in 2007 and has been a terrorist base ever since. But why allow the facts to ruin a perfect soundbite that Israel is being selective in providing the benefits of her defensive marvel, the Iron Dome and only protecting Israelis and not protecting the terrorists who are attempting to murder Israelis. This is the same form of thinking which had Israel provide weapons for the Palestinian Authority Security Forces, weapons we might add have been used to murder Israelis.





These news reports claiming that Israel is the cause of all the problems in the Middle East and even the world are nothing new. This was the basis for the Tsarist fabrication titled, “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” which played upon a similar accusation which had been utilized by Arab and Ottoman leaders as their excuse for selectively victimizing Jews under their rule taking their wealth and possessions and, in some cases, executing them for the safety of their peoples. These blood libels also spread across Europe often peddled by the Church and later adopted by many Protestant leaders who proved their purity by burning Jews at the stake for their crimes against Christianity. These victimizing of the Jews resulted in providing the core of the Jews who established Israel. Initially, starting even before the mid-1800’s, but starting to take off during that half century, Jews left Europe and some left Arab nations and relocated to what would become Israel. They began the irrigation works and other improvements. After World War I with the Mandate System the British were to establish the Jewish state in their Mandated lands. Instead, the British took 78% of their Mandate, the lands east of the Jordan River and gave them to the Hashemite Royal Family founding Transjordan (later becoming Jordan). The British also imported, with much assistance from the Arab League, Arabs from across the Middle East and Egypt in an attempt to prevent the founding of Israel. Even with the Nazis seeking to relocate European Jews to Israel, the British flat refused, sentencing six-million Jews to die under the Nazis. Once the British left, European Jews who had no homes to return to came to Israel establishing the nation of Israel. Immediately after declaring independence, Israel was attacked by six Arab Armies in what they expected would be an easy war in which they would destroy the Jews once and for all. They failed and Israel survived though she lost control of Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank). Next, the Arab world spat out virtually all of their Jews resulting in eight-hundred-fifty-thousand Jews being relocated to Israel doubling her Jewish population and cementing a Jewish majority. Israel liberated Gaza and the Shomron in the 1967 Six Day War and the world has been attempting ever since to force Israel back to the initial lines of that war so the Arabs can have a do-over. Any Israeli leader who permits such to take place should be tried for treason. Israel should simply annex the Shomron and provide enticement for the Arabs residing there to relocate.


People claim that doing such an act would cause the world to become exceedingly upset with Israel and opposing her actions. Exactly how that would differ from what Israel currently faces has yet to be explained. What many of the leaders in the world today are fully cognizant about is that all of the lands west of the Jordan River belong to Israel under every form of international law one wishes to apply. This has been established when the United Nations General Assembly convinced the Palestinian Authority to challenge the legality of the terror separation barrier which according to the European and Third World experts was holy Palestinian Arab lands. What the Court at the Hague informed the Palestinian Representatives and their United Nations supporters was that Israel had every right to do whatever they felt was necessary anywhere west of the Jordan river as legally the lands belong to Israel. There was an advisory opinion issued as a cautionary warning by Egyptian Judge, Justice El Araby, from the ICJ and who sat in judgement as part of the panel which heard the case from the United Nations General Assembly in 2003 on the legality of the security barrier erected by Israel. The Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others that filing further challenges of the legal claims to these lands ran some risks, as he stated,

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

Warnings do not get much more stark nor draw such clear lines as the one from Justice El Araby. His warning was taken to heart by the leadership of the Palestinian Authority as they have often threatened to take Israel before any and all of the various World Court Systems over a wide variety of claims all of which challenge Israeli sovereignty over any of the land but never ever have they even filed a memo at these courts. The rest of the world knows that Israel was cheated out of the vast majority of the British Mandate and accepted her fate simply due to an inability to fight the British at that time (or likely even now though, fortunately, there is no reason as of yet). One of the major problems being experienced by Israel is a lack of forward-thinking leadership which has the ability to stand firmly and demand the world permit Israel the rights and lands which were promised. The situation is easily seen by any with a desire to realize the truth of our reality. Israel is not even the size of New Jersey and if forced back to the pre-June 1967 lines would be barely nine miles wide at her width which also is the region surrounding Tel Aviv. Such a situation would place Israel on the flat coastal plains with the Arabs being able to mass along the Judean hills overlooking approximately 80% of the Israeli population, infrastructure, transportation, airfields, power generation, several nuclear power stations, the majority of Israeli sea ports and on and on. An opening barrage from these positions would leave Israel decimated even should she survive the ensuing war. What is needed in Israel is a leader who realizes this and is forward-thinking enough to realize that in the end, one way or the other, Israel must have the Jordan River and the deep Jordan River valley with its steep embankments on either side, which would protect Jordan from Israel just as it would protect Israel from attacks originating out of the east or northeast (Syria). This can come about through a relocation of the Palestinian Arabs just as the Arab world forced a relocation on its Jews. This was how such problems were settled between Poland and Germany; Russia and Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania; India and Pakistan; France and Germany; United States and Mexico and various other areas where land disputes have been settled. In the Israeli case, only the first initial half of the population transfers has occurred when the Jews from the Arab world were expelled and absorbed by Israel. The time is well past due for the other half of this equation to be enacted and it would be very helpful if somebody, say President Trump, came out in support of this solution and insisted it be enacted and it would be even better if President Putin, the Russian connection here, jumped on board. Below are a series of maps which explain the situation telling the story framing Israel and reality of her situation and why she requires the Jordan River as her eastern border without any Arab entity founded within her small frame.

Lowdown on the Entire Jerusalem Fiasco


President Trump did indeed say, “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.” A little while later he added, “Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.” Then he stated, “Jerusalem is the seat of the modern Israeli government. It is the home of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as well as the Israeli Supreme Court. It is the location of the official residence of the Prime Minister and the President. It is the headquarters of many government ministries. For decades, visiting American presidents, secretaries of state, and military leaders have met their Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem, as I did on my trip to Israel earlier this year.”


Moving along we get to where President Trump stated the obvious, “Jerusalem is not just the heart of three great religions, but it is now also the heart of one of the most successful democracies in the world. Over the past seven decades, the Israeli people have built a country where Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and people of all faiths, are free to live and worship according to their conscience and according to their beliefs.” Then started the qualifying his statements thus far when he limited where Jews can pray excluding them from prayer on the Temple Mount just as the Muslims and Arab Palestinians have demanded things be stating, “Jerusalem is today, and must remain, a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross, and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque.” Then comes the teaser, “But today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It is something that has to be done. That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”


This was a validly true statement which might have carried a lot of weight had President Trump not added this little gem, “In making these announcements, I also want to make one point very clear: This decision is not intended in any way to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement. We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. We are not taking a position on any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem or the resolution of contested borders.” And shortly thereafter, things went from weak to expanding wiggle room stating, “Without question, Jerusalem is one of the most sensitive issues in those talks. The United States would support a two-state solution if agreed to by both sides. In the meantime, I call on all parties to maintain the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites, including the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif.” Then came stating the obvious and the empty promises with these two lines, “There will, of course, be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement. But we are confident that ultimately, as we work through these disagreements, we will arrive at a peace and a place far greater in understanding and cooperation.” Now was time for optimism and President Trump did not disappoint as he restated from the Summit in Saudi Arabia adding, “I repeat the message I delivered at the historic and extraordinary summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year, The Middle East is a region rich with culture, spirit, and history. Its people are brilliant, proud, and diverse, vibrant and strong. But the incredible future awaiting this region is held at bay by bloodshed, ignorance, and terror. Vice President Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations.”


We apologize for repeating close to half of the speech, but the path taken was less than perfectly straight as it took some nasty curves and swerves around the obvious doing everything necessary to keep Jerusalem in play. President Trump was not about to give up the largest chip in his hand before he could use it in a bet to gather concessions from one side or the other. President Trump still believes that as a businessman he has what others lacked, the magic touch with which to arrange the perfect, you give they give and each takes half of this and that presto-chango and you have an Arab-Israeli peace deal. We really hate to burst President Trump’s bubble, but there is one stopper to a peace deal which even he, the great realestate magician, will find he cannot crack, Mahmoud Abbas and his final demands. What can President Trump offer Mahmoud Abbas in exchange for surrendering on the complete eradication of the Jewish State and the reduction to nil of the Jews residing there? This has been Israel’s Ace in the hole as no matter what is offered, we know that Mahmoud Abbas will say no as long as Israel remains the Jewish State.


The two main historic points of negotiations were the 2000 Camp David Summit between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat overseen and assisted by President William Jefferson Clinton. One can read a complete story which covers much of the negotiations by Wikipedia of the 2000 Camp David Summit but we will give our summation as well. As one would expect, there were accusations and insults passed back and forth until the two main parties refused to sit in the same room. The Camp David part of the negotiations ended with severe acrimony. President Clinton is persistent if nothing else and he demanded that the parties meet in Paris to try again, this time with his taking a more active role, he was convinced that his gifts of persuasion could alter what had previously proven to be an intractable situation. The talks again broke down quickly so President Clinton stepped into the breach. He spoke with Ehud Barak and demanded he define his best offer which he took to Yasser Arafat, after exacting out of Barak every inch of land and other allowance and benevolence until he was satisfied he had a presentable agreement. Then he took this to Yasser Arafat and the offer was refused, as we could have told President Clinton it would have been. President Clinton is not one to be put off that easily, so he worked for a few more hours with Arafat until he got him to put forth a proposed settlement that he would accept. Of course, Arafat gave President Clinton a set of terms he was sure that Ehud Barak would never accept even under torture. President Clinton truly was persuasive when upon returning to Barak he got him to accept whatever deal Arafat had proposed. President Clinton then sent invitations to both parties to attend breakfast the next morning without, apparently, telling either side there would be a signing ceremony. When Arafat came down a short time after Barak and saw papers laid out on the table and the media in attendance, he shot straight through the room, out the front door with Madeline Albright chasing after him, and into his car heading straight to the airport and took flight to Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan. There is contention as to what exactly was in the final presumed agreement but many claim it was a generous offer which was the most ever offered up to that point.


A while later President George W. Bush was persuaded, likely by his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to take a shot at Middle East peace. Summations of the final settlement offered which was refused by Abbas can be read from these sources; Jerusalem Post, Wikipedia, Haaretz, Times of Israel and an interesting editorial from the New York Times. He arranged meetings between Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas along with shuttle diplomacy with diplomats and officials flying between Washington D.C. and both Jerusalem and Nablus. The result was the definitive offer of the most it is likely Israel would or ever will be willing to provide. This was supposed to be the greatest and closest offer which could be and still, as it left the State of Israel intact as the Jewish State, this made it unacceptable to the terrorist leadership of the Palestinian Arabs. Many have pointed out that the Israeli People have suffered and will continue to suffer from terror attacks and threats which we have seen can be set in motion like a water spigot, simply say the words “Days of Rage” and the rioting begins and will continue until requested to end by the terror leaders of the Arab Palestinians. Those who riot are the youth and a core of instigators who are hardened terrorist planners, trainers and facilitators. The other sufferers are the Arabs Palestinians as their wealth is stolen, they are subjected to the disturbances as are the Israelis, are forced to support terrorism which of which many are not necessarily in favor and are forced to live in an atmosphere unfavorable for their making an honest living. This has been proven from some who have committed acts of terror who confess that they did so for the money their family would receive, as it was the most prosperous means they had left to them. Allow us to offer up a commentary on the aforementioned Palestinian Authority pay for slay policies.

Let us now move on to the commentary about Jerusalem and its relations as the capital city of the State of Israel and what the President of the Czech Republic stated recently. The following quotes were taken from two articles, Czech President Blasts EU over Jerusalem Stance and Czech President Hints: We could move embassy to Jerusalem which were both published by Arutz Sheva.


“The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement,” said Czech President Milos Zeman commenting before delegates attending the congress of the nationalist Freedom and Direct Democracy party. President Milos Zeman had stated formerly, “Trump’s decision makes me happy because when I visited Israel four years ago, I said that I would like to transfer the embassy, and that if that happens, we will be the first to do so,” He added at that time, “Every country has the right to decide which city will serve as its capital, and by the same token, every country has the right to decide where its embassy will be located. Trump’s move was meant to demonstrate the self-confidence of the United States, and that’s very positive.”


The Czech Republic followed in the footsteps of U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday and said it recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel within limitations, as apparently nobody is quite brave enough to state the truth, that everything west of the Jordan River is rightfully and legally belonging to Israel and there can be no other legal claim. The Palestinian Arabs are guaranteed the right to open and unencumbered employment, legal rights, property rights, and social rights but are restricted from political rights which remains definable as the State of Israel cares to define them. A statement issued by the Czech foreign ministry stated, “The Czech Republic currently, before the peace between Israel and Palestine is signed, recognizes Jerusalem to be in fact the capital of Israel in the borders of the demarcation line from 1967.” They added the formal weasel wordings of the European establishment doing all they can to eradicate Israel even if in steps adding, “The Ministry can start considering moving of the Czech embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem only based on results of negotiations with key partners in the region and in the world.”


Returning to our own commentary, we simply wonder how long the world, led by the Arab League who are faithfully followed by the Europeans and the United Nations and encouraged by the leftist and far right media and too many other sources and nations in a never ending plotting to destroy Israel. The British did all they could from the moment they took control of the Mandate to form the Jewish State out of the lands handed them to make sure that the Jewish State would never materialize. Their first move was to take 78% of the British Mandate and make the Arab State of Transjordan, today known as Jordan, giving it to the Hashemite family and King Abdullah I bin al-Hussein, as compensation for his family losing their former rule over the Two Holy Cities of Islam, Mecca and Medina, which were conquered after World War I by the Saudis filling the vacuum left when the Ottoman Empire collapsed. This took care of all the lands east of the Jordan River. The British, in conjunction with the surrounding Arab nations and the Arab League, always made sure to keep an Arab majority in the lands west of the Jordan River so they could refuse giving the Jews sovereignty, as they were a minority. This was very costly to world Judaism as the British imposed a cap on Jewish immigration to their holdings of seventy-five-thousand per year and, in order to assure this cap was never breached, they seldom even permitted the full number. According to Jewish Virtual Library the decade from 1929 through 1939 approximately one-quarter of a million Jews were permitted entry into the British Mandate area for the Jewish State meaning that the British actually allowed twenty-five-thousand Jews per year out of the set limit of seventy-five-thousand. The British finally decided to relinquish the headache of trying to keep order between the Arabs and Jews which would regularly explode between them and both were also working to rid the land of the British. All in all, this made the British continued command of the Mandate a burden no longer acceptable, so they set a date of May 15, 1948 for their departure. The United Nations General Assembly made a suggestion to divide the land, which legally all was an aside for the Jewish State, and despite having legal claim, the Zionist Congress and Jewish authorities accepted but the Arab League refused which voided the entire resolution. This meant the lands west of the Jordan River relented back to the original Mandate of forming a Jewish homeland and Israel came into being on the date of May 15, 1948 defined as all the lands west of the Jordan River. Any lands taken in the ensuing war of Arab aggression were illegally occupied. The Gaza was subsequently released by Israel to the Palestinian Authority who lost it soon after to Hamas. The area historically known as Judea and Samaria (Jordan renamed West Bank to remove the Jewish sounding names) is still legally defined as part of the Jewish State unless or until Israel decides otherwise. Should Israel decide to apply their rule over the entirety of Judea and Samaria, it is within their legal purview. What the world need realize and admit is Israel also does not have to provide political rights such as voting in national elections or even local elections, in areas Israel desires they not have a political say, as Israel is only required to provide social rights, religious rights, financial rights and other rights other than those of a political nature according to all the original resolutions, treaties and other measures all based on the Balfour Declaration and its specific wording.
