Victory Caucus and Daniel Pipes Demands Hitting Deaf Ears

 

Speaking in concert with the Victory Caucus, Daniel Pipes, Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum President, stated speaking to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “After more than a century, the conflict is really over. As an American, I would like my government to say to the Israeli government, ‘Do what you need to do to convince the Palestinians they lost.’” Thank you for your great observation of the Israeli victory, Mr. Pipes, but telling Israel she has won the battle will not end the war. Even convincing the majority of Palestinian Arabs that they have lost and they need to face facts and make peace at long last will also not suffice. As a matter of fact, the main people you need to tell are not even residing in the Middle East but reside everywhere else plus there is the problem of those in the Middle East who will never give up the war because this is no ordinary war. The first group you need convince of your point are a lot closer to Philadelphia than they are to you here meeting in Jerusalem, they reside in Washington D.C., and that is the American government and in particular, the State Department. Then you need to convince the Europeans that they too have lost and no matter how much treasure and Euros they send the Palestinian Authority (PA), Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and whomever else they are supporting to rid them of Israel has also failed. Then there is Russia, George Soros and the Sunni and Shiite Muslims the world over. What you need understand, Mr. Pipes, this is not a normal war and there are people and an entire industry built around the destruction of Israel and as long as the cash continues to flow, they will continue to murder innocent Jews whose only crime against the world is residing in their ancient homeland, or at least the two-thirds of their ancient homeland they have been able to hold for themselves. That is the problem and the reason the war will not end quite yet, the world is not ready to surrender to the existence of a nation belonging to their favorite excuse for failure, the Jewish People.

 

The Europeans want Israel gone and their Jews back so they can routinely throw them out of one nation and then the next until the Jews have traveled in a circle right back to the place they started with their money and belongings stolen from them a dozen times as they were sent into exile time after time after time. That was the fate of the Jews in Europe. The Arab and Muslim world had a different means of doing the same thing, they allowed their Jews to remain in place and simply raised the Jizya (tax on non-Muslims paid so they do not murder you for your audacity to remain different) on the Jews to the point that they took all their cash and other items of worth and then relieved the tax allowing them to rebuild their reserves before repeating the exercise. Thus far, the United States has not used either method but the levels of anti-Semitism in the United States were only lessened about a little over a half-century ago and already are showing definitive signs of rising once again. Jews were free to be considered equals in the United States until the Civil War when both sides claimed the Jews aided their enemies and were this suspect to the point that General Grant gave General Order No. 11 on December 17, 1862 ordering the expulsion of all Jews in his military district, comprising areas of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. The order was issued as part of a Union campaign against a black market in Southern cotton, which Grant thought was being run “mostly by Jews and other unprincipled traders. An outcry by members of Congress and the press, at President Abraham Lincoln’s insistence, Grant revoked the General Order on January 17, 1863. Still, the result was that thousands of Jews lost their lands, homes and all valuables and many were refused return by their former neighbors complaining that they were criminal undesirables. It seems that before the State of Israel was refounded after a near two-thousand year erasure, the safest and most fair treatment of Jews was in the Far East in Japan, China, India and the Philippines. Japan even protected their Jews from the Holocaust despite their alliance with Germany. The only European yeshiva to survive the war, the Mir Yeshiva, did so through Japanese assistance. So, despite the world’s considerable efforts to destroy the tiny State of Israel, Jews are still likely safest right here in Israel so perhaps we will remain in our ancient homeland as long as we are able and Hashem allows.

 

Israel is the 149th nation by size out of the 195 listed here yet is the first nation mentioned by most world leaders when the question of the greatest troublesome spot in the world. What makes this so ridiculous is the reason that Israel is considered to be the number one hot spot of turmoil on the globe is simply, her belligerents are receiving the most money from the world than any other place and yet Israel remains strong and free. Israel is the sole nation which the United Nations had an institution, UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), dedicated to the support of and education for the continuation of the combined Arab effort through the PA, Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terror groups to destroy her and annihilate her people. Additionally, the Europeans have a plethora of dedicated NGO’s which they register as Israeli though are funded primarily through the European Union and the individual European nations which operate to spread any forms of information designed to disparage and destroy the nation of Israel.

 

Further, the PA states in their charter not that they seek a state of Palestine but that they will use that demand in order to destroy Israel even if it must be done in stages. And the PA is not the worst as Hamas has in their charter not only the destruction of Israel but also the annihilation of the Jewish People worldwide. Such an economic structure, which dwarfs every other financial effort of the world except for the Defense spending by the United States and possibly Russia and China, cannot be claimed to have failed as long as the cash flows and there are individuals and groups making millions skimming funds right off the top. Hamas just had some leaders retire as they had amassed over one-billion dollars each and no longer wished to risk being targeted by the Israelis so they took their ill-gotten gains and faded into the sunset. They were replaced by younger and hungrier men who will now begin to amass their fortune only to reach a point where they retire and the next set of leaders will gorge themselves on the cash flow of hundreds of billions if not trillions or even tens of trillions per year of which they can easily steal ten percent. Further, these groups all have education systems, which train their youth to be terrorists and murder Israelis except they more often than not state Jews instead of Israelis because the argument is not with the Christians, Muslims, Baha’I and other religions, their desire is to murder Jews.

 

Mr. Pipes, the objective to end this insanity is to first end the desire throughout much of the world for the eradication of the Jewish people. To do this one will also have to rid the world of a movement which has existed since the dawn of history to return to the hedonistic ways of barbarism where the rules of the jungle and survival of the fittest reigns supreme and no longer is man condemned by his conscience as Judeo-Christian ethics will have been abandoned. This was part of what Hitler offered and was taken up on with great glee as he mesmerized a people with the concept of the end of Christianity and the death of the Jewish invention of the conscience (see video below). The reason for the destruction of the Jewish People is simply, if the Jews are destroyed, then Christianity also becomes vulnerable. The immediate reaction of people to this claim is to believe that the loss of the Jewish People would actually make Christianity stronger, but that is not true, as if the Jewish People are destroyed, especially now that Israel has been established once again, that would invalidate the promises of Hashem. Once you have proven that Hashem made false promises, you have destroyed the existence of Hashem. Without Hashem, there can be no Christianity as their faith still rests with the same Hashem, the same G0d as the Jews worship. The end of the Jewish People also destroys Christianity as the G0d of Abraham, Isaak and Yaakov is also to Whom Christian worship is intended. The main winner is Islam as the religion born of Avram, Ishmael and Muhammad as Ishmael was born to Avram and Sari’s handmaiden, Hagar, before their names were changed by Hashem to Avraham and Sarah when they entered into His covenant to form a peoples from their lineage of Isaak who also received this covenant through his son Yaakov, while Esau also received a kingdom. This shows how Allah and Hashem are not the same, they are different and thus Islam is not an Abrahamic religion but rather an Avramic religion from Avram who was still to receive the covenant with Hashem at some later point.

 

 

So, this war is not over Mr. Pipes because the forces, which desire the end of Hashem, have not yet surrendered and are unlikely to ever surrender until the coming of the Messiah. The main providers of the cash flow are the Europeans in every form imaginable, the United States in their aid to those nations and entities, which are allied to destroy Israel, and the United Nations, which has turned from a power for peace, and the benefit of humankind into an organization hijacked to bludgeon Israel into a bloodied corpse. This has been proven for years by the United Nations Human Rights Council and their Agenda Item 7 that mandates the UNHRC debate Israeli human rights abuses against the Palestinians during each of its sessions. This debate is a denunciation of Israel that has the position of automatic guilt by Israel simply for not committing suicide and surrendering totally before the wishes of the Arab world as channeled through the PA and Hamas mostly. This is simply the demand to denounce Israel as a matter of natural action without need for debate or proof of wrongdoing, Israel is guilty because Israel exists. Then we have UNESCO that is deciding that Israel has no claims to anything related to Israelite or Jewish history and is erasing Israel one edict at a time. Thusfar the UNESCO declarations have decided that there is only Islamic historical connections and absolutely, according to UNESCO, no Jewish or Israeli connection to the Temple Mount, the Western Wall and the Tomb of the (Israelite) Patriarchs. These are in addition to the General Assembly and almost two-hundred nations all recognizing the Arab State of Palestine which by law would, like Saudi Arabia, be Judenrein and which has no defined borders, does not meet the minimal standards under international law for being a nation, and has as its only ambition the destruction of another member nation of the United Nations and violates the United Nations Carter Article 80.

 

While Israeli Arabs of all faiths have universal rights identical to those of Israeli Jews and serve in the Knesset and are judges including having served on the Israeli Supreme Court including current permanent Justice Salim Joubran, Jews in the Arab and Muslim controlled world face a different prospect. At this other end of this spectrum, the following sixteen nations refuse entry to those with Israeli passports and may also refuse entry to those with an Israel stamp on their passport are Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Libya , Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Oman, Pakistan, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Lastly, many Arab nations in order to avoid disclosure of their having driven the Jews almost completely from within their borders will list that Jews make up 0.1% of their population thus allowing the claim that the Jews were not forced, harassed into, or otherwise expelled into leaving their homes and often most of their belongings and all financial equities and assets behind but simply decided to move to France, the United States or Israel, the three largest destinations of the Jewish populations throughout the MENA area (Middle East and North Africa) which is also the range where the majority of the Arab and Muslim influences reside. These deportations by whatever means were carried out largely between 1950 and 1960 by which time the few remaining Jews were most often quite old and often cared for and resided in one of the Synagogues remaining in these nations, many of which are quite old dating back to before the arrival of Islam in some cases. Many of these Synagogues have since been repurposed as museums or transformed into Mosques or simply torn down to make room for new buildings.

That is the reality that nobody cares to ever discuss when talking about the Israeli population, that half of the Israeli people are descendants from Arab countries and not Europeans. The sad thing is if you were to ask the average European or American, actually almost any Westerner, where the Jews of Israel originated, their answer would be Europe. This is why you hear calls for the Jews to return to Germany, Poland and the United States, as did American Arab White House reporter Helen Thomas (see video below), not realizing that half the population came from Arab nations who would never accept them in a return and a goodly number families have lived in Israel, many in Jerusalem, for as far back as they can remember or have records. Another canard is that Israel is a racist society of white people. In November of 1984, the decision was made to go forward with Operation Moses and beginning November 21, 1984, Israel involved the Trans European Airways to transport some 8,000 Ethiopian Jews from Sudan via Brussels to Israel, the efforts ending January 5, 1985. Then there was Operation Solomon, the covert Israeli military operation to airlift Ethiopian Jews to Israel from May 24 to May 25, 1991 using non-stop flights of 35 Israeli aircraft, including Israeli Air Force C-130s and El Al Boeing 747s that transported 14,325 Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 36 hours. This puts an end to accusations of an all white Israel as when you include the Arabian Jews and the Jews from India that include the Bene Israel, the Cochin Jews, the Baghdadis from Iraq and Syria, and finally the Bnei Menashe, then you have added an entire range of racial peoples which easily balances out the whole population and negates the accusation.

 

 

So, Mr. Pipes, though Israel may have militarily won the conflict, as long as Mahmoud Abbas along with Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Bashir al-Assad, Islamic State, Iran and other Islamic supremacists are receiving funding or have their own funding and desire the destruction of Israel or the Jewish People there will be no surrender by the leadership of these groups and nations. The PA will continue to fund terrorists and pay their families if they are killed while murdering or attempting to murder Israelis, whether the target is Jews, Christian, Muslims or any Israeli or person within Israel and thus Israel is responsible for their safety, and pay the terrorists in the prisons serving sentences for the murder of Israelis, then this war of attrition will not end. Currently the PA and Hamas, in conjunction with UNRWA, run schools that train the children to be terrorists and make martyrdom appear to be wonderful and a means of providing for one’s family. There are claims the majority of the PA economy is based on the payments made to terrorists and their families. The murder of Israelis is the major industry making a profit in the PA and you are telling us that we won is ridiculous. The terror continues and the children ever younger are coming into Israel by any means necessary and then attempting to kill the first people with whom they come into contact. If they can drive, they ram their vehicle into crowds at bus stops or waiting to cross a street, which is why Israel had placed barriers to prevent such attacks. Others just take as large as a knife they can find in the kitchen and head off to stab Israelis indiscriminately. No, Mr. Pipes, this war is not complete and the PA leadership does not care if they have lost, there are still Israelis to murder and money to be skimmed off or otherwise distributed to keep everything continuing, especially the murdering of Israelis. We are afraid that in the end there will be only one sign that the war is over, when the Palestinian people rise up and remove the lunatics who currently are leading them to ruin. They take every possible step to make earning a living next to impossible unless you are connected with the government. The government only pays people who are related to the leaders or have or are killing Israelis. That is their economy in a nutshell. So, you can tell President Trump to instruct Israel to do what is necessary to convince Mahmoud Abbas that he has lost, but be prepared for some serious violence as he will not go quietly and will allow as many of his people to be killed before he leaves, and then he will take a tour around the world claiming the Israelis butchered innocent people and once again Israel will be in the world’s crosshairs. The world loves to hate Israel and as long as they do, Abbas remains in business. Can you convince the Europeans, United Nations, United States (especially the State Department) and the Muslim world that the war is over, the PA lost and they can stop sending this carcass any further money as doing so just prolongs the death spiral? We really wish you luck, but our experience is their hate overwhelms their common sense and decency, but you are free to try. We give you our best wishes and let us know how it goes, please Mr. Pipes. Thank you in advance.

Knesset Victory Caucus Formed by Yisrael Beytenu and Yesh Atid

 

The Knesset Victory Caucus has been formed with the co-chairing being by MKs Oded Forer from Yisrael Beytenu and Yaakov Peri from Yesh Atid. That is a coalition headed by the parties of Avigdor Lieberman and Yair Lapid. Yair Lapid founded Yesh Atid and has been its sole leader. Yisrael Beytenu represents a secularist and right-wing nationalist political party in Israel whose base has traditionally been secular, Russian-speaking Israelis and has been led since 1999 by Avigdor Lieberman. Avigdor Liberman and Yisrael Beytenu have taken on the position of King Makers by often being amongst the second tier parties who jostle for positions and cabinet ministries and, especially in the case of Yisrael Beytenu, have been fairly crucial in most of the coalitions supporting Prime Minister Netanyahu and have reached amicable agreements allowing their leadership to serve often even in the Security Cabinet. Yair Lapid has specific reasons for forming his party, and it is his party, Yesh Atid, which was for the expressed purpose of his running and becoming the next Israeli Prime Minister claiming that Israel is sick and tired of Bibi Netanyahu and as there appears to be nobody who is willing or in a position to challenge him from within his Likud Party, Yair Lapid will challenge him in the national elections and offer the Israeli people a true and meaningful leader, or at least that has been his reading of his future and the future of Israel. Forming a co-managed coalition with a name such as Knesset Victory Caucus resonates with us to be similar to the Labor Party under Isaac ‘Bougie’ Herzog joined with Tzipi Livni and the party she formed, the Hatnuah Party, and the Israel Green Movement which was formed by Eran Ben-Yemini and Alon Tal, all joined together making an alliance in the Knesset they named the ‘Zionist Union,’ as misleading a name as we have seen in politics as the party represented largely post-Zionist membership. We suspect that the ‘Knesset Victory Caucus’ is actually designed by Yair Lapid who has likely either suggested sharing the position of Prime Minister or allowing Avigdor Lieberman to choose three or four top position in such a coalition Ministerial positions such as Foreign Minister, Defense Minister or other top slots should they take the top position due to their running as a single party and adding their votes together in an attempt to take the top position after the next elections. The one Aspect of this group is their connection with Daniel Pipes and the Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum, of which he is the President. They are holding a conference in Jerusalem, so we will look more deeply into this alliance, this coalition. Some of this and other political moves can be expected in the near future as election fever is being stoked by much of the media. The Labor Party just held elections for their top spots, which were won by Amir Peretz and Avi Gabbay who are set to face each other in a runoff for the Labor Party’s leadership to complete the election process this coming week. Elections fever; yet we have not even felt the slightest jolt of electricity up here in vacationers’ paradise. The next scheduled election for the Knesset is November 5, 2019, a little far off for election excitement to be starting which begs the question why.

Well, some will tell you that it is the investigation into Prime Minister Netanyahu and his lawyers. If that is all that is required for elections fever, then we would be having such on a very regular basis as the leftist media and the leftist legal system and security forces seem to thrive only when making headlines in Haaretz calling for, having, or demanding investigations of Prime Minister Netanyahu. Yes, there is another investigation into something, and if past investigations are nay prediction then this just might turn out the same meager rumors such as friends had given Bibi cigars or the Netanyahu’s are eating too much ice cream (sounds eerily like my doctor when viewing my test results) or other items which result in more giggles than actual accusations. Bibi Netanyahu might just be the most investigated leader in all of history since Moses, as reading Torah, it seems that there were others second guessing Moses every step of the Exodus and even before as the Egyptians had to be curious about how Pharos’ sister had a child without having any signs of a pregnancy, but she claimed one of their gods gave her the child as a sign of adorations or something equally believable, yea, right, that’s the ticket. Anyway, this merging of Yesh Atid and Yisrael Beytenu appears to be political with a nice cover of being an investigative group seeking an end to the Palestinian Arab and Israeli conflict through impressing upon the Palestinian Arabs that the Israelis, the Zionists, have won and they have lost. Perhaps they are not aware of the claims by UNESCO that the Temple Mount, Western Wall, East Jerusalem and the Cave of the Patriarchs have absolutely no Jewish connection or Christian connection and are purely Islamic. These determinations reason that as Moses was a Muslim and Abram was the father of Islam and Noah was a Muslim and Adam and Eve were Muslims and Sari was the mother of the Muslims then obviously anywhere you care to choose must be an Islamic shrine as everybody is a descendant of Adam and Eve as well as Noah thus everything ever built since Adam and Eve or Noah, take your pick, is of Islamic origins. Obviously, nobody could ever contest such conclusions as it is written in the Quran about these people’s links to historic Islamic world. Oh, by the way, Jesus was also a Muslim prophet and will serve Muhammad and the Mahdi in the final days, according to the Quran and Islamic authorities. After all, according to Jack Engelhard UN to name Yankee Stadium a Palestinian Heritage Site, and he was probably only at the starting point.

 

Anyway, the Knesset Victory Caucus has taken a number of polls of the Israeli people. Their basic findings revealed that the majority of Israelis believe that Israel is the victor in the conflict and that the Palestinian Arabs need to realize this and settle for what they can have now or face being completely vanquished. It has become obvious that the Two State paradigm has come to an end as the obstructionism of the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership has ended any hope of reaching a settlement and the Israelis no longer care about so-called fairness that the Europeans and the United Nations are consistently calling for. The Israelis have come to the realization that the world will never be satisfied by anything short of the extermination of the State of Israel. Nations will continue to trade and enjoy the discoveries, inventions and new methods developed by Israeli scientists and researchers while denouncing Israel at every opportunity and at best will abstain while allowing for United Nations institutions to declare Israel belongs to the Arabs and that the Jews have no rights to a life anywhere on Earth except as the underlings being under the thumb of everybody else. UNESCO and UNHRC have been the leaders in denouncing Israel and declaring every locations requested by the PA as an incontestable Islamic Holy Site. The historical preponderance of evidence is that Islam builds or converts other religious sacred sites such that they become Islamic sites such as the Temple Mount, the Cave of the Patriarchs, the Hagia Sophia and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre among others. Add to that and the apparent belief that there is not a single human abuse which Israel is not guilty of committing according to the United Nations such that Israel must be investigated and found guilty of some abuse before any further business can be conducted at one UN agency.

 

The world’s obsession is the simplest proof that the new anti-Semitism in the Twenty First Century is the hatred and demand for the deconstruction of the Jewish State of Israel. The further horrors resulting from this hatred of the Jewish State of Israel has been ever increasing anti-Semitism around the world with much of it driven by Islamic extremists with an increasing and unacceptable amount of support by what are considered to be mainstream Muslims who have accepted Western World’s societies and cultures. Some will claim that the vast majority of Muslims have little if any love of the Western World and Westerners and are simply biding their time until their numbers reach a sufficient percentage and then they will support the institution of Sharia, the strict Islamic Law which erases the rights of non-Muslims and places Muslims above everybody else and eventually the non-Muslims will face the choice of conversion or death. Even should they accept Islam, their lives will be scrutinized looking for the slightest signs of slipping or not sufficiently keeping the laws of Islam. The new converts would be easily found guilty of being apostates, backsliders, heretics or other abhorrent behaviors which would result in torture followed by being executed, very possibly in some horrific manner and publicly as a warning to everyone else. The increasing anti-Semitism which has infected Europe has become far too serious to simply be the acts of the new immigrants or even the entirety of the Islamics residing in these nations, it has reignited the secretive anti-Semites and their hatred is becoming so prevalent that it now is perfectly correct to express such hatred publicly without expecting to be shamed or arrested for hate speech. Say something against Islam and you will be facing hate speech charges. Just ask Bridget Gabriel, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and even Brigitte Bardot. Speak against Israel, Jewish individuals, Judaism or the old canards of Jew control of the media, politics, the economy or world affairs and even quoting from the fraudulent Protocols of the Elders of Zion are all acceptable and reasonable speech in the Western World. Once again, it has become open season on the Jews of Europe and hopefully this time they will choose to get out before it becomes too late. Their heading for the United States would be a mistake, as that would only perpetuate the coming to face the realization that they will never become acceptable anywhere in the world other than in Israel. Yes, they will be just as despised by the world in Israel, but at least the military and the police will be there to defend them and all who live in Israel.

 

The world is coming around to a precise and predicted point where the only place a Jew can feel accepted and safe from persecution will be Israel. The flow of Jews to live in Israel will continue to increase as anti-Semitism slowly grows and progresses across Europe bursting to a critical point in nation after nation. In the meantime, the leaders will claim that there is little Jew hatred in their nation while promising the Jews in their country protection. The protection will be temporary until they can declare an area safe and retreat back allowing the violence to arise again. Eventually the Jews will take the hint and realize that there is an economic price to their being protected, and that price will be less and less tolerated as time passes. Either way, Jews will slowly take the hint and no matter their initial flight, their eventual target will be to flee to Israel. When the entire flight of the Jewish People has come that they all reside, with a small few outliers as the exception, the anti-Semitism will coalesce with all the hatred pointed to Israel. That will lead to the predicted final war for all mankind where the world unites against Israel and Hashem makes His presence known at the height of the battle and disperses the forces against Israel with great dispatch. This will bring the Messiah and the world will live in peace and finally accept leaving the Jews to reside in Israel with a rebuilt Temple in their Capital City of Jerusalem and the lands promised in the Torah. In the meantime, would it be too much to ask that the world actually fulfill their promises made in the San Remo Conference even if they only recognize the promise made by the British Crown which stated that in response to the Arabs receiving 78% of the British Mandate, the lands west of the Jordan River, the remaining 22% (the same 22% which Mahmoud Abbas consistently claims should be his) was reserved for the Jewish State and would be protected from any further divisions. How about that? We really are not requesting anything that large, we are asking for something about the size of New Jersey, that is all, no huge swath of land, no Greater Israel, just the Promised Israel.
