Trump Recognizes Jerusalem So Now What?

 

President Trump went “All-in” with Israel and the Jewish People, even if there are those who do not realize or wish to recognize this truth. President Trump announced before the world that Jerusalem is the Capital City of the Jewish State, always has been and always will be, will be the location of the United States Embassy, and, whether he realizes it or not, the right of the Jewish People to have for all time Jerusalem as their central dream. (Speech can be viewed at bottom of our article) There run-up to President Trump announcing an obvious truth to all who have any knowledge of history or religions, was filled with threats and promises of violence, as well as political pressures sent from Arab capitals, European capitals, African capitals, Asian capitals and from almost every continent with the usual exception of Antarctica. Even from within the United States there came pressures and threats. The State Department, as usual, resisted moving the embassy or even recognizing the over three thousand year-old truths about Jerusalem as the center of Judaism and capital of every Jewish State since King David conquered the city before the year 1000 BCE, the media hyperventilated over threats such as the one from Grand Imam of al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayeb who stated, “If the door is opened for foreign embassies to move to Jerusalem, the floodgates of hell will be opened to the West more so than to the East.” And “fuel anger among all Muslims and threaten world peace,” while Keith Ellison, Democrat Representative from Minnesota told Democracy Now, “I believe in a two-state solution, an Israeli state and a Palestinian state side by side in peace and security. So issues of where the capitals will be has always been something that will be negotiated in the course of a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.” He was also quoted stating, “Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital a horrible tragedy.” (see below) Additionally were the warnings from King Abdullah of Jordan, numerous officials from the PA*, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, and even Pope Francis went adding his voice to warnings by Arab and Muslim leaders that recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital would have dangerous repercussions.

 

 

So, the warnings came from every direction, virtually every religion, every region, every level of government, from democracies and kingdoms alike and they all forgot one thing, President Trump does not respond or react as a politician and take the safest route of expediency because President Trump is not a real politician, something which was driven home during the entirety of the Presidential campaign. So, now that President Trump has jumped about as far out on a limb as one can jump proclaiming Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel and that the State Department has been tasked to relocate the Embassy of the United States in Israel to Jerusalem, what could he ever do next to match that? Truth be told, we probably have just witnessed what will be determined to be one, if not the, pinnacle of his time in the Oval Office. As for what next, hopefully he will actually fight the Congress, demand the entirety of the tax cuts he desires, and give the America people the lower and completely rewritten tax code he promised. But for the Middle East, President Trump has just reformed and rearranged virtually everything. Jerusalem will now remain forever the Capital City of Israel, the peace process has been revealed to be the venture and the sole purview of the Arab Palestinians and the Israelis, and no longer in the hands of the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League or any other nation no matter what other leaders might want to believe. President Trump stated that any peace which might come between the Arab World, Arab Palestinians as well as the Muslim World and Israel would need to be the result of their direct negotiations and that the remainder of the world need allow the parties involved determine their acceptable peace as no outside assistance has ever proven effective thus perhaps no outside assistance would best serve the conditions for peace.

 

The truth is the world is facing a new world and will need to choose between peace and freedom. The peace which has been offered to the world by Islam, is a chimera offering the peace of the slave, while those opposing the terrorists through stiff opposition offer the fruits of freedom. The choice is between peace and freedom, something which sounds ridiculous until one understands the issues involved. As was obvious in the week leading up to President Trump announcing the recognition of Jerusalem and intentions to move the embassy, the Muslim World, the Arabs in particular, threatened violence and terrorism throughout the world, specifically stating intent to target the Western World, as the consequence of operating outside their predefined conditions for the world. Those who have paid attention have likely also noted that such threats have been used regularly against Western governments when they announce any plans which run contrary to their delights. Israelis have lived with these threats and the ensuing consequences, as they are often carried out, with increased terrorism from time to time intended to cow Israel into further surrenders. There are always increases in Arab terrorism whenever the Israeli government accedes to these threats as such cowing simply strengthens their belief in the successful function resulting from their violence. This also occurs whenever there is the promise to reconvene a new round of the peace process. In reality there is not any peace process as all that exists in reality are successive rounds of demanded successions which the world is obliged to foist upon Israel under pain of increasing terrorism if the Western nations do not put sufficient pressures upon the Israeli government. These are the realities which the Western World is facing and it will only get worst the more the Western nations give in to these threats of violence.

 

Map of Terrorist Attacks in Europe Middle East and North Africa after 9/11

 

People, especially Muslims, love to point to all the Western politicians who have referred to Islam as the “Religion of Peace” usually immediately after a terror attack. They then go off the rails by claiming that this means that the terrorists are the exception and the relatively few Muslims residing peaceably in the West are the rule in Islam. They further point to the fact that there are over a billion Muslim of which most are peaceable. What they are refusing to admit is that there are different ways in which Muslims can support Jihad meant to conquer the world under Islamic rule. All Muslims are required to engage in Jihad, the few who actually commit the acts of violence, those who financially support those efforts, and the remainder is required to support these acts in any means by which they are able, allowing terrorists to find refuge in their homes and neighborhoods, joining in referring to the deceits as truth, deceiving police investigations or simply remaining silent and never, ever turning fellow Muslims in for any act of terror. Islam is the “Religion of Peace” providing that they define peace. The Islamic idea of peace is made most obvious by how Muslims divide up the world into two spheres, the House of Submission or (Dar al Islam) and the House of War (Dar al Harb). The Muslim World is permitted peace while any part of the world is not under Muslim control is considered to be at war with Islam. So Islam is the Religion of Peace and all other religions are Religions at War, namely at Islam or Islam is at war with them. That is the politically incorrect but true definition of the Religion of Peace which those who have studied Islam might serve the free world a favor and be more vocal but too many of them have become enamored with Islam and the Arab World and spend much of their time in the cafes of the Arab world in their magical favorite places. Were they to speak up and tell the truth they would no longer be welcomed.

 

Let us talk reason and what will slowly, but inevitably, become known and understood the world over when Islam ramps-up their offensives throughout the Western World. Europe has already started down that path, particularly Western Europe and Paris specifically. The reality that peace can only be had by coming under Islamic Sharia, the Islamic rule of law which denigrates all those who are not Muslims to Dhimmitude, a second class form of existence where one had absolutely no rights in a court of law and few rights and must always defer in all things to any Muslim. Religions are not permitted to build new houses of worship or even to repair existing ones such that with time all houses of worship which are not Islamic, eventually collapsing. Such treatment is followed down the line in all things in order to pressure all to become Muslims and eventually these places will reach the final stage where all who have not surrendered to Islam are provided a choice, surrender to Islam or face death. So, what will come to the Western World in the future is a choice between the “peace” of Islam or Western freedoms. That is why we claim that people are going to have to choose between freedom and peace. In an old television show a commander informs those around him in a meeting that, “The opposite of war is not always peace, sometimes it is slavery.” Islam defines peace as surrender to Islam which is a form of slavery of a life with no freedoms as everything is defined precisely by Islam. Even government is defined in Islam and must be led by the religious leadership such as in Iran or by dictatorial governance who are beholding to the religious leaders such as in Saudi Arabia. The governments in the West are incompatible with Islam and the Islamic World is filled with perfect examples with virtually no, if any, exceptions showing that Islam begets totalitarian regimes which are often theocratic tyrannical oppressive regimes. Time will tell and unfortunately, the amount of time it may take will eat into the possibilities of the final solution coming peacefully.

Truth of the World Against Israel

 

Probably one of the most perfect examples of how the Europeans felt about the prospect of Israel being driven into the sea by Arab forces during the October 1973 Yom Kippur War was their response to the United States even before any request had been sought to refuel the aircraft which were to be used to airlift resupply of munitions and other supplies for which they were running dangerously short and without which they would have soon been fighting the Arabs without armaments for their aircraft, bullets for their rifles, shells for their armor and artillery or fuel for their planes, tanks and vehicles. The refusal was unanimous as every United States ally from NATO and Europe declined to permit refueling of any planes used to resupply Israel and was sent to Washington D.C. even before the White House or Pentagon had even made any request. In time, Portugal was convinced to permit refueling to take place at the Lajes Field in the Azores Islands. This deplorable treatment of the United States effort to assist Israel completely outstrips their votes in the United Nations General Assembly and explains fully their votes, or abstentions, in votes by UNESCO, the United Nations Security Council, the United Nations Human Rights Council and numerous other international bodies. Simply stated, most of Europe would like nothing better than for Israel to disappear as long as all that is required of them is to sit on the sidelines and refuse to lift a finger. But how much further does this hatred of Israel reach? And do not get this wrong, hatred of Israel, the only Jewish State, is the new anti-Semitism, especially when these nations and individuals who refuse to support Israel and go to extremes to injure or destroy anything to do with Israel show no such hatred and spite towards any other nation in the world. This becomes even more obvious when one compares the voting habits and statements of nations and politicians and others towards anything Israel and their lack of such vindictiveness when considering nations whose actions are honestly contemptible compared to those of Israel when judged by an honest broker, and we are not trying to suggest that we would be such a broker, and we admit that we obviously support Israel though not to a fault as we have pointed out errors and missteps when they occur.

 

In the Arab, and most of the Muslim world, hatred for Israel is universal and all but goes without saying. Of the Muslim world outside the Arab nations, Iran and Pakistan are likely the most hateful countries with Iran having demonstrations where “Death to Israel” is the theme that the gathered chant. What might surprise many not familiar with the Middle East is that of the nations which repeatedly top the list of most anti-Semitic nations, one of them is a nation which actually has a peace treaty with Israel, Jordan. The top ten most anti-Israel locations according to Times of Israel are as follows;

1) The Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza) 93% overall index score
2) Iraq 92% overall index score
3) Yemen 88% overall index score
4) Algeria 87% overall index score
5) Libya 87% overall index score
6) Tunisia 86% overall index score
7) Kuwait 82% overall index score
8) Bahrain 81% overall index score
9) Jordan 81% overall index score
10) Morocco/Qatar/UAE tied at 80% overall index score

 

One does not have to go any further than the General Assembly and the votes taken in that body over the years concerning Israel to get a general idea. Looking just slightly deeper one can find a similar bias in the United Nations Human Rights Council, UNESCO and the Security Council where without the veto of the United States, the Security Council would likely even vote to declare Israel a non-entity and persona non-grata at the United Nations. Of course, one might see such a move as an advantage for Israel as the United Nations has not exactly been the most supportive body over the past number of decades. The saving grace for Israel is that the International Court System is composed of judges who are sworn to decide cases strictly by the letter of the law. This restriction takes out much of the politics but even this has not been completely indemnifying. Still, the fact that the World Courts are presumed to be confined by the letter of the law has prevented the Palestinians or Arab League from bringing Israel before the courts attempting to accomplish there what they have failed to do on the battlefield in their numerous attempts to erase the Jewish State by military force. While it is true that the United Nations provided the impetus under which the State of Israel received world recognition, had the British not pressed that they were leaving no matter the situation that vote would never have taken place. The world was content as was the United Nations to wait forever if that was what it took to end any chance for a Jewish State as long as the British remained in place preventing such. When pressed to act the United Nations reversed against their own Charter Article 80 which placed them as responsible for holding up the promise to grant the Jewish state the remainder of the British Mandate, that 22% which remained after the Arab State for Arab Palestinians had been established, namely Jordan which comprised 78% of the British Mandate lands. The United Nations did not have the authority to try and split that sliver of land in half establishing a second Arab Palestinian state and this should remain as the law enforced by the World today.

 

Do not hold your breathe waiting for the world to act as promised when their real desire is the elimination of Israel. What is sad is that Israel is one of the first nations to be on scene at any natural disaster worldwide with a hospital, search and rescue teams, and trained personnel to handle whatever the emergency might be. Israel also sends teams of their experts in medicine, agriculture and other fields to developing nations to assist them in furthering their development and assisting with establishing infrastructure and even assisting in setting up new departments within hospitals such as their Save and Child’s Heart campaign. There was one time where the United Nations worked with and approved of Israeli assistance to the world with assisting nations with agriculture and leading new technologies to be spread to the world saving water and growing greater plant yields voting for the Israeli motion on these efforts. Another time the United Nations World Health Organization recognized the Israeli army’s field hospital, classifying it as its first and only “Type 3” field hospital, recognizing it as the “the number one in the world.” If only all the United Nations organizations could operate without the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic blinders we might actually find a path to a better world.

Still with the direction the world has been drifting, as represented in the last Anti-Defamation League Index of Anti-Semitism which reported there being approximately 1.1 billion people worldwide holding predominant anti-Semitic feelings or ideas out of just over 4.16 billion surveyed. That is a total of 26% of those surveyed expressing anti-Semitic biases of a measurably significant basis (see map below for breakdown by regions). Making things detected even further disturbing was the fact that this trend has been growing annually across many regions. This past year proved to have been the worst year on record. This is something we can back in our own experiences as we mostly resided in areas outside the typical Jewish neighborhood. We found that support for Israel depended on religious observance with those most likely to stand approvingly and appreciably with Israel being the most observant attending services as well. As depicted in the study of worldwide anti-Semitism, such beliefs are rising often in greater percentages than the national increases in numbers of Muslims. Traditional anti-Semitism was found to be rising disturbingly fastest amongst Europeans. Another idea that was validated was the fact that many places where a Jew was not known to have resided also often had high relative anti-Semitism amongst those who reportedly had never encountered a Jewish person.

Another disturbing revelation of late has been the change in the demographic of the kind of person most likely to hate Jews and detest Israel with the right becoming less anti-Israel with the main remnant of such hate relegated to the farthest extremes while on the left the amount of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel feelings on the rise. This has been particularly true amongst the colleges and universities, especially in the United States and Europe. Much of this has had the blame placed on the rise of the Palestinian Arab sympathy and support movements. These include the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions on Israel Movement (BDS) and the anti-Israel organized events played out on North American and European campuses such as the Apartheid Wall, Israel Apartheid Day or Week or even Month and other various events meant to demean Israel as an oppressive, colonialist regime worthy of scorn. When one traces the beginnings of such events one finds that behind them are a plethora of leftist organizations and groups such as American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), BDS Movement and other left-leaning to overt left-wing groups; what one finds is that the majority are either ancillary groups which sprung up in sympathy and the Islamic based groups almost all come from the Arab League boycott of Israel which was best made public back in the September 1967 Khartoum Resolution with its “Three No’s” which were “no peace with Israel, no negotiations with Israel, no recognition of Israel.” The other birthing place for many Islamic based or Arab based groups was the Muslim Brotherhood and often with roots in Hamas. The newest origin of such feelings comes from Iran and is instigated and directed often by arms of the al-Quds Brigades division of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps). These efforts are backed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the other oil rich Arab states and have been a concerted effort through propaganda and subversive activities, which had some assistance and guidance early on by the KGB. The reasoning for the KGB assistance was that these groups were seen as recruitment arms for KGB sympathizers and as another way to disrupt the United States further dividing it and turning American against American and weakening American resolve in the Middle East providing openings for the Soviet Union.

The last subject which requires coverage is the means testing by which one determines if any anti-Israel demonstration or event is anti-Semitism or legitimate criticism of Israel. One of the most used means is through the application of Natan Sharansky’s “Three-D’s Test for Anti-Semitism and discerning such from honest and legitimate criticism of Israel. These three D’s are Demonization, Delegitimization and Double Standards which are defined more in depth here. To give a short overview these are readily applicable to much of today’s anti-Israel near hysteria. Demonization takes a little knowledge of history and traditional and historic anti-Semitic canards. One which easily translates was the “blood libel” that the “Jews murdered Jesus” where the anti-Israel incarnation would be any picture of an Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldier pointing a gun at a Palestinian, usually an innocent looking youth who is particularly photogenic, with the message of “You are killing me all over again.” Another is the “blood libel” that the “Jews murder and use the blood of Christian children to bake the special matzah” with the replacement of Christian with Muslim or Palestinian you have an instant message which is anti-Semitic. Any use of Nazi propaganda or Christian “blood libels” or Islamic denouncing of Jews from the Caliphate times, the Quran, Hadiths and the Sīra. Some have begun to use the term Judaeophobia to describe all actions or forms of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. This allows one who has crossed the lines of proper and useful opposition or accusations against Israel as being a Judeophobe, a word of similar nature to Homophobe or Islamophobe. Using this wording often clarifies the situation such that you simply place Israel into a phraseology which is of a similar vein to the Islamophobic or Homophobic hate speech or action and instead place Israel or Israelis into such text and you have entered the realm of anti-Semitism. Below is a video by Caroline Glick’s explanation for the constant thread of anti-Semitism and its symptoms in a brief fifteen-minute talk followed by Richard Littlejohn and his coverage of British anti-Semitism which includes some anti-Israel views all from 2007 era in a forty-five-minute video of a special broadcast we believe was from the BBC and finally a full-hour by Rabbi Ken Spiro who covers many aspects and has some very unique insights and historical references which prove how modern and new the current anti-Semitism gripping the world actually is and how much of its roots are in the last few hundred years with most in the last century.

The European Union Actually Planning Empire

 

It turns out that there is actual evidence issued in European Union (EU) documents spelling out their designs to extend their domain and control over the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on to Central Asia and Middle of the African Continent. These plans existed before the British voted to depart the EU with their Brexit referendum. Still, the EU will likely attempt to exercise this extending of the areas wrapped up in their web of dictatorial control and this may be part of the plan with the admitting of the refugees from MENA areas as their plans would incorporate much of the Muslim and Arab worlds in their extended governance. The actual released plans are in a PDF format titled Shared Vision, Common Action: A Stronger Europe A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy. The “European Union Global Strategy Executive Summary” begins as follows:


We need a stronger Europe. This is what our citizens deserve, this is what the wider world expects.
We live in times of existential crisis, within and beyond the European Union. Our Union is under threat. Our European project, which has brought unprecedented peace, prosperity and democracy, is being questioned. To the east, the European security order has been violated, while terrorism and violence plague North Africa and the Middle East, as well as Europe itself. Economic growth is yet to outpace demography in parts of Africa, security tensions in Asia are mounting, while climate change causes further disruption. Yet these are also times of extraordinary opportunity. Global growth, mobility, and technological progress – alongside our deepening partnerships – enable us to thrive, and allow ever more people to escape poverty and live longer and freer lives. We will navigate this difficult, more connected, contested and complex world guided by our shared interests, principles and priorities. Grounded in the values enshrined in the Treaties and building on our many strengths and historic achievements, we will stand united in building a stronger Union, playing its collective role in the world.

 

The wordy introductory summary continues for three more pages of droning boredom which one can read at the link above followed by approximately fifty or so more pages. The one thing which is made evident is that the European Union, a.k.a. Germany and Herr Merkel are looking at the first step to world conquest by absorbing the Middle East and the oil fields and Northern and Central Africa because that is as far as Germany got the last time they tried a somewhat more violent conquest of the world. This time they are taking, as we noted the other day, an economic conquest by simply out producing the other member states such that the Euro reflects German output thus making every other nation relying on German largess to remain financially solvent. This has been made excessively evidenced by the recent years as Greece would have starved and not been capable of even fueling their police vehicles without German ‘loans’ which came with demands for altering the societal work ethic and other actions by government and population to suit demands and desires of the German government. Greece proved more stubborn than expected but the Germans did accomplish impressing the idea that without the favors from Germany the Greek society would have collapsed and thus they owed Germany their warmest and most earnest gratitude, but the Greeks drew the line short of obedience. Still, it is evident not only in Greece but Italy, Spain and, to a lesser extent, France all are left looking at German economic output and work ethic and realize that as goes Germany, so goes the European Union.

 

The main sticking point at the moment is that should petroleum prices rise the EU economy would slow creating problems even for Germany. Further, raw materials are another essential requirement for the EU economic engines and assuring these will continue without interruptions or financial instability driving the EU economies accordingly. Should the EU expand their influence and control such that the Middle East oil and the raw materials found in Central Africa then the EU would become pretty much completely self-reliant and finally be capable of production controlling everything from top to bottom making everything flow without problems, price difficulties or any slowdowns to their economy due to lack of control over needed supplies of petroleum and raw materials as these would now be under EU control and Germany would have their production assured by which they could continue further expansion of the EU until they become that one world governance which has been so elusive.

 

Their documents themselves refer to global strategies. It claims so right in the title where it states theirs is a “Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy” and nothing less. Their contents list as below:
A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy: “Shared Vision, Common Action:
A Stronger Europe”

 

1. A Global Strategy to Promote our Citizens’ Interests
2. The Principles Guiding our External Action
3. The Priorities of our External Action
3.1 The Security of Our Union
3.2 State and Societal Resilience to our East and South
3.3 An Integrated Approach to Conflicts and Crises
3.4 Cooperative Regional Orders
3.5 Global Governance for the 21st Century
4. From Vision to Action

 

It is easy to see that theirs is an ambitious project and they are looking to expand their influence and they are willing to take any necessary steps and have already decided that they are to be the main world power and to slowly but inexorably swallow area after area starting with the petroleum supplies of the Middle East and the mines of central Africa and are willing to take on the nations of the Sahara Regions in order to spread into Central Africa and the access to raw materials such as iron and bauxite mines.

Add to this the resources, especially petroleum in the Middle East and Central Asia and one can see why the EU and Germany desire expanding their influence and control over these areas. This one simplistic map tells the story better than we could with a thousand words.

 

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

 

There really is not much one can add to what the EU released when their document became public, and we thank this revelation for putting to rest what the real intentions for their future and the future of the world the back room boys of the EU have in mind. Their delusions of grandeur and expectation to slowly expand their region of influence until they hold sufficient sway over production, raw materials and petroleum reserves that they will hold the controlling influence over virtually all manner of production and world economic health and indicators. Their claim that their intentions are for a global influence if not outright control is made amply evident but raises some serious questions. The first and most obvious question that comes to mind is exactly how does the EU plan on expending their control over these areas? We have some doubts as to the likelihood that these areas nations would be all that open to simply being subsumed by the EU no matter how generous the initial offers. We can be fairly assured that some nations such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey and Jordan would not be all that open to joining the EU and kowtowing to Germany’s heavy-handed running roughshod over other nations as they have with the less productive nations and even other near equals such as France and Britain, possibly one of the reasons that the British people felt the need to break with the EU, expecting other nations to pick up whatever slack these economies had as compared to the high productivity of the German heavy productivity. This pressure is less obvious for those nations outside the EU and have not received much coverage, but with Brexit the realities may slowly come to the fore and be revealed even faster should the EU, instead of executing expansion into new territories, begin losing member nations as others decide to head for the exits and try controlling their own borders, trade and currencies instead of being dictated from Brussels which sits more in service to Germany than anything else.

 

Then again, as most of the EU nations have abandoned their own currencies and have been using solely the Euro that the cost and burden of returning to their own currencies, as we have noted previously, would prove problematic and possibly so burdensome as to be prohibitive. The EU may be saved by a combination of prohibitive costs and challenges for individual nations returning to independence from the EU and inertia which would have leaders rather continue with what is already in place than challenge the independence from the EU which could be fraught with unforeseen challenges. Time will tell but the reasoning for why the EU desires to add these additional regions and the raw materials and petroleum reserves would be tempting under any circumstance. As for the feasibility, we would estimate they are somewhere around nil as the nations outside the EU, especially the Islamic nations, are not at all likely to take kindly to any pressures or attempts to compromise their independence by the EU which they already view as a colonialist aggressor. The funny reality is that Islam and the Arabs themselves have a far greater history of colonialism and their colonial pursuits are alive and well today across the MENA nations other than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States which were the original Arab lands historically until the expansive thrusts which came soon after the advent of Islam and the Medina Quranic directives which spawned that expansive colonial expansion which they still retain to this day. Nobody can predict the future with any assurance of knowledge or prophesy but we will stand for now by our predictions that the EU should be more concerned with their own house before attempting to add additions to that home. Isn’t it just wonderful to live in interesting times just as a Chinese curse threatens?
