It is NOT About Land President Trump

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the community of Squirrel Hill and all of Pittsburgh after the horrific Synagogue shootings. Tomorrow we will give our reactions after we are able to digest this tragedy and all its ramifications. May Hashem soothe the bereaved and keep all in His loving care.

 

President Trump is attempting a make a Middle East peace plan, the so-called “Deal of the Century,” in the same way he would negotiate a deal along the Jersey shore. He wants to have each side take lands and agree on borders no matter which elements he is required to include. He tried the Palestinian Authority (PA) and they balked immediately and were quite abusive in their rejection. He tried Jordan and initially got the same response though more measured and polite. He has possibly decided that bribing Jordan will do the trick, he is wrong. Mr. President, we do not know any easier way to put this, this is not about land, this is about Jews. The Arabs made this so very clear in their little tête-à-tête which they held the September after their humiliating defeat in the Six Day War in 1967. They came out with what is known as the Khartoum Resolution and had the infamous ‘Three No’s’, which are “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The Arab League expelled Egypt for a period after Anwar Sadat signed the Egypt-Israel peace agreement only permitting them back in as Egypt was then one of the more powerful Arab nations and still might be. The entire confrontation comes down to a few very simple and easy points to understand. First is that the region which is Israel had been Islamic territory for hundreds of years under the Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire and as such must never be permitted to fall into the hands of any others. This is a Quranic dictum. The Muslims also claim that most of Spain is actually called Andalusia and is also Islamic lands which they are anxious to retake under their control. One has to wonder if they also wish to sit at the Gates of Vienna once more as twice was not sufficient. This is a religious war over which religion is supreme, Judaism or Islam. Further, Jerusalem being the third holiest city in Islam is a recent development and only came about after the Jews took the entirety of the city in the Six Day War. There have been other third holiest cities in Islam of which probably the two most famous are Damascus and Constantinople. The third holiest city in Islam is reserved for the next city in importance which the Muslim hopes to conquer or control through any means necessary. The main point of any negotiation could not care where any lines are drawn and what the name of each tract of land assumes, it is about which religion controls the land and for there to be peace that religion must be Islam. One last point before explaining further, the worst possible case for the followers of Islam is for the, as they would refer to us, accursed Yahud to take control of previously Islamic land. That is why Mahmoud Abbas made claim that every inch of Israel is an Islamic Waqf, which in this usage means an indelible and indivisible part of property belonging to Islam.

 

This is the idea through which UNESCO made all of the Old City of Jerusalem a Palestinian Heritage Site and disavowed any meaning or significance of the area to Jewish history or of any religious significance to the Jews. They did the exact same thing on Hebron which includes some of the holiest sites in all of Judaism including the Cave of the Patriarchs and Joseph’s tomb. They also had the same declaration on Bethlehem which apart from its Christian heritage is also the location of Rachel’s tomb. The churches in the Old City including the Church of The Holy Sepulchre as well as the churches in Bethlehem including the Church of the Nativity are claimed to be Mosques and belonging to Islam with no relevance to Christianity. They make a big spectacle around Christmas and Easter for economic reason selling trinkets to tourists. Another little concept which it might be wise to keep in mind when dealing with the Arabs, Taqiyyah, which is a directive within the Quran which actually not only allows a Muslim to lie to advance the causes of Islam but actually compels them to lie. The odds are that should they say something to you which is pleasing and meets your expectations, the odds are they are employing Taqiyyah and when the time comes to sign any treaty they will claim they never ever stated what you claim you heard. There is an easy way to understand the position of a Muslim when attempting to make a deal, which is what you claim you desire to accomplish. The first thing is that you must give and they must receive. That is the most basic concept in their minds. They can promise you anything but are not under any obligation to actually fulfill their promises. Anything you even intimate is a possibility, they will pocket that as something you promised and no amount of protestations or reality will change that in their minds. When dealing with them if you promise to give them something in return for something they offered you and then they break off negotiations and later decide to resume the negotiations, what you promised is the new starting point and they get to keep whatever you promised while you get nothing because they did not mean what they said when they agreed to exchange something for your concession.

 

We realize that this does not sound quite right and is a form of negotiating with which you are quite unfamiliar. Allow us to recommend you read some items from American history which might explain some of what you are getting into when dealing with Muslims. Read everything you can find in the White House records by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and any other records dealing with the Barbary Pirates and the two separate wars the United States was involved. You may even wish to read some of the commentary from our European counterparts from that period to get an idea at how useless the Europeans were in this struggle despite gaining from your efforts greatly. When Thomas Jefferson queried on why these attacks were being made on American ships when the United States had not entered into any conflict with the rulers of the Barbary Coast, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Ambassador from Tripoli, replied that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” Needless to say, Thomas Jefferson was quite floored at this response and it was then that he searched out a copy of the Quran in English and read it to his amazement and abhorrence. That is also the Quran which Keith Ellison took his oath of office upon and may have been behind President Obama’s claims that Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. Perhaps that last part just might give you an idea as to how far the Islamic practice of prevarication can reach.

Once you have made yourself more attuned to the people with which you are attempting to make a real estate deal and the fact that they are not negotiating anything remotely close to real estate, perhaps we can recommend some additional reading. Then again, you could simply have a long and uninterrupted sit down with your Nations Security Advisor as John Bolton is quite familiar with the history and this knowledge could be of much assistance. You might ask about the San Remo Conference and how the British when they received the Mandate decided that their Mandate to form a Jewish State in those lands did not explicitly state all of those lands, so they gave 78% to the Arabs and paid their debt to the Hashmites by giving them rule over Jordan and Iraq, King Feisal insisted that the British give both sons a kingdom. When the British gave the one son Iraq, they made a deal by which J. Paul Getty received total control of the Mosul oil fields and in return Iraq got to keep the lands which were to have been Kurdistan. This is why when the Kurds hinted they wished to separate from Iraq, it would have behooved the United States to have assisted so as to make good on a promise the world still owes to the Kurds. The British attempted to do the same to the Jews but we decided to ignore the State Department when they informed us that it would be inconvenient for us to declare independence in 1948 because as Jews we have been told it would be inconvenient too many times to care. You probably have noted that the State Department is not exactly a pro-American department and have opposed the greater good for a very long time starting with their tacit support of Hitler and Mussolini with their admiration of the efficiency of fascism. We have always believed that the State Department has always been a little to enamored with the idea of government control over everything. This may be why they also thought that Joe Stalin (Uncle Joe to the State Department) was such a wonderful guy and somebody the United States could take a few lessons from on how to run an economy. We can also tell you a little secret which is actually well known, the State Department thinks that Israel is just a royal pain and wish we would disappear and are willing to kowtow to Islam if they would take care of their Israel problem. Just ask John Bolton and he will probably tell you it would be in the best interests of the United States to recognize the borders Israel was at least promised by the British in exchange for their stealing away 78% of the Mandate lands, and that was that our eastern border was to be the Jordan River and Israel was obliged to recognize the right of everyone residing within her borders to practice their religion, have a business, equality on all economic matters, allowed to own land which means that they are to enjoy religious and civil rights without prejudice but there was one right which Israel could, should they so choose, reserve solely for Jews, political rights such as the vote and holding office. Now, obviously Israel did not choose to do so and gave full citizenship to the Arabs residing within her borders after the war to eliminate the Jews in 1948-9 fortunately fell short. Yes, we lost parts of Judea and Samaria as well as all of Gaza, but we saved our country to live and become the little giant she has become. What is really sad is how hard the world fights to deny us the small plot of land which is a mere 22% of the Mandate, but we all know what their motivating factors are, oil and hatred, an old and dirty hatred. Perhaps the solution would be to grant Israel the lands she was promised and tell the Arabs occupying our remaining lands that perhaps it is time that they moved on let us be. We know, that is way too much to expect from a world that would rather see us erased from the map.

John Bolton and His Possible First Assignment

 

Numbers of friends asked when John Bolton was chosen to be National Security Adviser to President Trump why was he chosen for this position. The first thing I informed them was that President Trump desired to have Bolton onboard to take care of specific situations and problems but knew there would be heavy push back if he required being confirmed by the Senate. If you believe that the Kavanaugh situation turned ugly, had John Bolton required confirmation, the Senate obstructionists and opposition to President Trump would have had a field day and do not even ask about the games the media would have played. For an introduction, read about his being appointed by President George W. Bush as Ambassador to the United Nations for a taste of the pushback. This was why he had to be appointed as the National Security Adviser simply because the position does not require Senate advise and consent hearings, or should we call them quarrelsome brouhaha. They found this informative but re-asked their question and added a, ‘why him’ to their query. Well, that I can answer with a single word, Israel. The Arab Israel Conflict resolution has become more than President Trump had bargained for and he decided it was time to call in a weapon of mass destruction, John Bolton. John Bolton has been added to the teams attempting to pry some agreement out of the Middle East which has hit snag after snag and apparently stymied the current members of the conflict resolution team. So, introducing John Bolton, a bombastic and extremely determined individual who is willing to bulldoze through all obstructions, blowing them from his path, and who has no problem imposing his will on even the most recalcitrant of individuals. John Bolton has been assigned to find the people willing to make an agreement, find some way of tying such an agreement together, implementing this agreement and then making it stick against all adversarial efforts which will assuredly be forthcoming, potentially in groups or potentially swarms. This is the job for which John Bolton has been hired.

 

National Security Adviser to President Trump John Bolton

National Security Adviser to President Trump John Bolton

 

Where is our proof that John Bolton was chosen as National Security Adviser simply to address the entire Arab Israeli conflict? Well, there was this report about the Trump-North Korea Summit which stated, “President Donald Trump’s Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was full of showmanship, featuring photo-ops, a long press conference, and one very unusual promotional video. But one player in the scene was surprisingly quiet: John Bolton, Trump’s national-security adviser.” Then additionally there have been his remarks of late. John Bolton attacked Iran calling them “the world’s central banker of international terrorism since 1979.” Addressing ramification of the threats by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to possibly incur the International Court of Justice in settling diplomatic disputes, he stated, “the so-called state of Palestine” challenging the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem at the international court, stating bluntly that “Palestine” is not a state. There was his commentary on Russia’s decision to provide Syria with advanced S-300 air defense systems is a “major mistake.” Have you noticed any common denominator in his commentary? All his remarks one could claim were made by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu instead of the United States National Security Adviser. The question is how it is thought that John Bolton, the one man with a distinctively favorable track record concerning Israel, will in any way find a better way for solving the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Would not the presence of John Bolton polarize and harden the Arabs in their positions?

 

Well, that brings on a simple answer. Could he actually make anything worse than the Khartoum Resolution and the Three No’s, “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” Somehow, the Three No’s is a definitive statement which rules out any possible solution which would involve any of the members of the Arab League. Meanwhile, as we have reported on numerous occasions, Mahmoud Abbas, just as had Yasser Arafat before him, has a simple answer to any offer which meets every single of his demands, he walks away without any counteroffer and then refuses to negotiate and launches a terrorist offensive within the following three to four months claiming they are grassroots uprisings to protest the Israeli rejectionism at the previous negotiations. This is always picked up exactly as described by Abbas in the European media and the leftist media in the United States, Canada and the remainder of the Western World. Always, the reason given for ending any negotiations has been laid at the feet of Israel despite any reality proving otherwise. Yasser Arafat walked out in Paris, Mahmoud Abbas has simply refused to meet at all and explanations invariable blame Israel claiming Israel has not sacrificed or granted sufficient demands from the PA to make further negotiations even remotely advantageous. We would only be able to wonder and dream in order to find a single concession which the PA has ever granted Israel. If we could simply just be presented with a provable concession which has been made and followed through upon and not simply retracted as soon as they walked away from the negotiations, then there could be progress. We have been unable to find any such event.

 

We do remember the recounting by President William Jefferson Clinton of how after pressuring Yasser Arafat in Paris during the Camp David Accords negotiations and getting an exact description of his minimal acceptable agreement if only the Israelis truly desire peace. President Clinton tells that he then expected he would be required to exhort, cajole, urged and finally insist with it all in the hopes to have Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak meet Arafat’s demands. Well, Prime Minister Barak was said to have thought and with the slightest coaxing, he agreed to the demands for the minimum Arafat required for him to sign a peace agreement. The next morning, Yasser Arafat simply stalked across the room striding purposefully straight out the front door with Secretary of State Madeline Albright chasing after him unable to catch Arafat before he reached his waiting vehicle and headed to the airport and flew back to Jordan. That was the closest anybody may have come to finding the unfindable agreement. The simple truth is that there is but one thing the Arabs will accept, the complete destruction of Israel or turning it over to them to rule, either way, placing the Jews under the care, protection and wills of their Islamic betters. They state that as Dhimmis, the Jews will be treated with the extents of the Quran which makes Dhimmis a protected people as long as they pay a tax called the Jiyza. What is left out is that the Jiyza can rise to any level, even to a point of demanding the turning over of all property and wealth. Then the next time the tax comes due, there will be no means left to pay any expected amount at which time the protections can disappear. That is the least of the restrictions which are troublesome from the Quran’s treatment of Dhimmis such that they have no legal recourse in the courts and there is no protection against forced conversions or forced marriage of your children and even convert or death choice.

 

So, with the reality that Mahmoud Abbas, Jordanian King Abdallah and Egyptian President Sisi will all refuse any agreement with Israel where the Jews are permitted to have rights to govern themselves, then how can John Bolton possibly make any progress where none has ever existed? Well, there is the fact that his reputation as a rather blunt and forceful individual who is extremely opinionated who is difficult to deal with, but why should that change anything? Well, another thing about John Bolton is that since he is not the President nor an actual Cabinet Secretary and merely an adviser, he will have the latitude to do offers which are beyond things that say the Secretary of State could broach without actually obligating the United States or the President. This may permit Mr. Bolton to inspect other alternatives which a President, Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense would cause far too much talk and media reporting making actually working such a deal to its conclusion. Such a deal might be done by going around King Abdullah and instead backing the Jordanian Opposition Council led by Mudar Zahran, somebody who could meet with John Bolton outside some international event away from the media and avoiding any undesired attention. The Jordanian Opposition Council is led by Mudar Zahran and desires to make peace with Israel and turn the rule of Jordan to the Palestinians who represent a sizable majority of the Jordanian population. There have been suggestions where the King of Jordan will still rule over Jordan which will be minimized into the areas where the Bedouin and other non-Palestinian tribes in the eastern sector while the Palestinians will be given rule of the remainder of Jordan renamed Palestine.

 

The Arabs from the Shomron would be enticed to move into this new nation and those remaining in PA regions would be granted Palestinian citizenship and Israel would be returned the entirety of the Shomron. This would require some extreme assistance from the United States as certain powers from the Jordanian areas remade into Palestine would need to be removed before they could overthrow whatever governance is put in place. Assuming that Mudar Zahran and his Jordanian Opposition Council are backed and placed into Palestine with King Abdullah simply instructed that should he attempt to retake the remainder of what had been his nation that he would face very stiff and possibly deadly resistance as the United States is backing new governance. The Muslim Brotherhood would be the first group to be removed from the new nation. Any other known terrorist operatives would require neutralizing. Finally, once Palestine has been pacified, much as Germany was de-Nazified after World War II, then new elections, which should be carefully operated by the United States and overseen by respected and trusted international observers, need to be held to elect new and representative governance. The peace which would be reached between Israel and this new Palestine would also require being overseen and enforced by international interests, defined as the United States as most others would be considered as being compromised. The unfortunate and most shaky part of this arrangement is that for it to actually be capable of lasting, it will require the United States to make an investment militarily, socially, economically and in other capabilities which may not be evident initially as the situation would most definitely require nurturing. The difficulty with this idea is whether Mudar Zahran and his Jordanian Opposition Council are actually seeking peace or simply attempting to use peace with Israel as a lever to gain power followed by their never releasing power forming a dictatorship which could then turn against Israel. This potential eventuality is why the conversion process from potential terror state to modern economic state will require being walked through the transformation and protected from backtracking. This could be the small crack in the Islamic World through which a different passage can be opened leading to progress in bringing the Arab world forward to modern economic success. The incoming King of Saudi Arabia has made indication he would like to open such a path for his nation. Adding Jordan to the north along with Saudi Arabia passing into the modern economic world could complete the apparent path the world appears to be rolling along. Such a change in direction for the Arab and Islamic world would, if accomplished, be the greatest product of President Trump. The only problem is what would happen with following administrations, would they continue to support such an effort or simply destroy all this progress just to spite the memory of the time President Trump held the White House. The destruction and shutting down of the operations required in the name of erasing Trump’s legacy while saving funds could result in the end of modernizing the lives of the many Arabs currently living in an age removed from the developed world, a world where their own leadership currently reside. There is hope that progress could come and lift many in the Arab world from tribalism and poverty into the modern world with all the benefits and progress. This hope might just be the reason for John Bolton as his actions are often reported as being illogical, unhelpful and anything but to what people should pay any attention. Thus, his visiting some obscure individuals in London or outside the Davos meetings would be minimalized by the media, something simply perfect for Bolton to actually operate below the radar and by the time he is found out, it might just be too late to change what will result.

Jordanian and Israeli Negotiations Will Fail

 

The presumed upcoming negotiations to redraw the lines between Jordan and Israel splitting up the former West Bank which Israel liberated from illegal Jordanian occupation during the Six Day War when Jordan entered the war, despite Israel pleading for them to remain neutral, almost a day after the actual conflict part of the war had started, resulted in their loss of the regions west of the Jordan River. Technically, this land reverting to Israel control should have been the end of the matter. The Arabs residing there with Jordanian citizenship, which was all of them, should have been repatriated into Jordan and everything ended and solved. The world saw things differently; Israel must not be permitted to be victorious and the laws of nations where a nation which gains lands in a defensive war, which the war with Jordan most definitely fits the definition, may retain such lands and even more-so when retaining such regions provides a natural defensive barrier which the Jordan Valley most definitely meets as a requirement. This becomes even more valid when one also takes into consideration that the original border proposed by the British and presumably enforceable under International Law between the Jewish State and the Arab State (Jordan) was to be the Jordan River. Read the San Remo Conference, then the League of Nations Mandate and the Churchill White Papers, which guaranteed the border as the Jordan River. All of this has nothing to do with why the negotiations between Jordan and Israel will fail, if they even are to be permitted in the first place.

 

President Trump has this huge Western societal blind spot when it comes to Islam and, particularly, the Arab forms of Islam which unfortunately includes Iran despite the Persian population’s desire to be excluded from their current society and desire in large part to return to their former religion of Zoroastrianism. President Trump is deeply versed in the Western ideal of The Art of the Deal, if you will pardon the unavoidable use of his book title. He has no idea about the Arabian and Islamic concept that the world is divided into two spheres, Dar al-Islam and Dar al-Harab, the world of Islam which lives in peace as it has been perfected and the world of war which has yet to have been forced to submit to the superiority of Islam and requires being conquered. This results in their believing that Islam is superior in all ways including the regions of ideas, science, thought and especially warfare. Further, they believe that Allah would never permit any lands that had once fallen to Islam to ever be ruled by any leadership which is not Islamic in nature. Even diving deeper, the Jews are cast in the Quran as inferior beings who are, at best, hardly truly human and are to be hunted and destroyed by Islam as it is the will of Allah. These ideas are found in greater variants and extreme hate in the Medina verses of the Quran which have abrogated anything sweet and loving which may have been found in the Mecca Quran which was written earlier. An introduction to the contrast between the Mecca and Medina Quranic Verses can be read at the link with numerous further readings included in many of the comments. One fairly well-known verse of condemnation of the Jews is included in the Hamas Charter which goes, “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry out: ‘O Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” All of what Islam stands behind is completely abrogated by the existence of Israel, and as such, Israel must be completely and utterly destroyed of its Jewish influence and the Jews killed or completely subjugated. This is why peace is completely out of the question and thus none of the Arab nations are permitted under the Arab League to make peace with Israel. Egypt was suspended from the Arab League from 1979 through 1989 due to their making a peace with Israel.

 

This leads people to ask if the Arab League has altered their hateful positions concerning Israel as they did not expel or suspend Jordan for making peace with Israel and permitted Egypt to return as a member. The answer is a definitive no. They altered their means for the destruction of Israel as they realized that pitting Israel against the entirety of the Arab World made Israel David and the Arab World as Goliath and thus Israel was too easily seen sympathetically. Thus, when Jordan made their peace with Israel, they relegated their illegally possessed lands west of the Jordan River to Israel. They then claimed they released their claims only to the Palestinian Authority under Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian claims changed from claiming all the lands west of the Jordan except the region possessed by Jordan to demanding a state in the lands formerly held by Jordan. This slowly morphed into Israel conquered the lands possessed by Jordan actually from a state called Palestine, a complete and total mythical imaginative place clearly made of pure political cloth. Through this transformation, the Arab World supported the Palestinian cause with funding and weapons along with great amounts of propagandized fabricated untruths. Their propaganda resulted in today many people echoing the fallacy that Israel actually conquered the nation of Palestine which existed in the regions of the Shomron and Gaza, the two regions illegally held by Jordan and Egypt from 1948 through to the June 1967 Six Day War when Israel liberated these regions which were legally set aside by the League of Nations Mandate system which was later taken on for enforcement by the United Nations through Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. Suddenly, Israel became Goliath and the Palestinians were the new David. The Arab League began a boycott of Israel enforced on every member nation. This boycott of Israel became through propagandized inventions to the current BDS Movement used to attempt and force nations and companies to join the formerly purely Arab boycott of Israel.

Back to the presumed coming negotiations which will be held between Israel and Jordan where their borders will be redrawn once more with Jordan taking political and security control of the Palestinian Arab regions in the Shomron with Israel presumably being allowed to retain some of the Shomron region and this will bring peace. How such could occur will be based upon the recent op-ed article in the Jordan Times on August 12, 2018 by retired Jordanian Ambassador and former editor of the Jordan Times, Walid Sadi, stating, “First of all, the unity of the West Bank with the East Bank was officially and constitutionally adopted on 24 of April 1950. No one disputes this fact. The Constitution of the country at the time was the 1952 Constitution, which stipulated in no uncertain terms that no part of the Kingdom shall be ceded, period. This provision makes the 1988 decision to cut off all legal and administrative relations between the two banks stopping short of ceding the West Bank to any side whatsoever. Any other interpretation of the 1988 political decision is absolutely untenable constitutionally.” Simplified, Jordan is now claiming that the lands of the Shomron which they renamed the West Bank still is legally claimed by Jordan and could not have been ceded to Israel or even the Palestinian Authority and thus still belongs to Jordan legally as far as the Jordanian government and their King are concerned.

 

With this established, or at least placed into the mix, this makes it now possible to have Israel and Jordan negotiate peace with no need to include the Palestinian Authority who have already stated in no uncertain terms that they refuse any negotiations which include the Trump administration or the United States, as the United States because of President Trump cannot be trusted as a neutral arbiter. President Trump has taken them at their word and has now attempted to include Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia in place of the Palestinian Authority and thus allow for a final peace agreement to be molded. Initially, Jordan refused to enter into these negotiations demanding that President Trump take whatever necessary steps to placate Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat, and the rest of the Palestinian Authority polity in order to reach an honest peace. Egypt and Saudi Arabia both stated they were willing to work with Israel in order to establish an honest peace providing the terms were satisfactory with the demands made by Mahmoud Abbas, Saab Erekat, and the Palestinian Authority polity. Translated, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are willing to be just as implacable as the Palestinian Authority. They were actually stating the proper and honest position of the Arab and Islamic worlds when it comes to peace with Israel, namely that they will accept any peace in which the Jews no longer are permitted to have power or hold political positions or any power. Egypt and Saudi Arabia both stated that the refugee situation would need to be dealt with adequately and to the satisfaction of the refugees. That is code for flooding Israel with five to eight million Arab Muslims refugees who have been taught to hate Jews to the point that they would instantly start murdering the Jews upon arrival within Israel, which is the sole solution which is considered acceptable despite the impracticality.

 

Obviously, President Trump has utilized threatened adjustments in the carrots and sticks promising to remove one and replace it with the other to bring the Jordanian leadership, King Abdullah II at the foremost, to negotiate with Israel and accept his initial plan. This does not in any way mean that such negotiations will proceed within any projected path expected by President Trump. The Jordanian representatives will very likely have some preceding demands for Israel to provide proof of their honest willingness for peace by giving up some concessions which the Jordanians will demand are necessary before anything else can begin. We predict that they will include but not be limited to their retaining complete control over the Temple Mount, Cave of the Patriarchs and other Jewish holy sites which they will claim are actually Islamic holy sites, demand continuity over the areas which they will retain, their capital city of the province as East Jerusalem, and very likely that the initial position be recognized that all of the contested lands actually and truly are property which belongs to Jordan, that anything Israel may receive will be because Jordan is willing to cede these territories and all lands under Jordanian control must be made Judenrein. These demands are actually a disguise of the exact determination they desire as the final peace and by having Israel agree to these as the initial positions, then all Jordan need is refuse every proposal and then at the end cash in these concessions and they will have regained all the lands they had lost in 1967 and can then resume shooting at Jews from East Jerusalem and any of the hilltops in the Shomron and things will return to the horrors of 1948 through 1967 when Israel liberated these lands. One can only pray that President Trump will flatly refuse to pressure Israel to make any of these concessions and in reality, Israel should take certain steps as soon as it appears that such negotiations are to be coming in the near future.

 

The very first thing that Israel must do is to eject the Jordanian Waqf which has slowly strangled out the rights which Jews and other non-Muslims used to have over time. Jews, Christians and anybody else were permitted to pray and freely enter and enjoy the Temple Mount after 1967. Over time, the Waqf has imposed rules slowly ever accelerating their restrictions as they found the Israeli government complacent to these changes. We have written about this subject numerous times including Enforced Status Quo Equals Anti Jewish Status,   History of Jerusalem and Status Quo Incompatible,   Just Try to Understand the Problem,   Temple Mount Is Not and Never Has Been at Status-Quo,   Time to Climb the Temple Mount for All People,   Temple Mount Status-Quo Not so Static Though also Status-Quo is not holy; the Temple Mount is Holy.  As you can tell, the Temple Mount and the creeping Sharia disguised as the status-quo has been a hot topic issue with us. The main thing to remember is that the entirety of these actions were facilitated by the Palestinian Authority but only at the direction of the Jordanian Waqf which answers to the leading Imams in Jordan, the Jordanian leadership and is directly answerable and directed by King Abdullah II himself. This is also the exact leadership which will be directing their negotiating team and who will sit in judgement and decide if any plan will actually be accepted.

 

The one item which is of upmost importance is that there be no preconditions, no Israeli concession demands permitted, and at no time should Israel be forced to accept any Jordanian demand just to continue the negotiations. If any of these items is permitted and accepted by President Trump or attempted to be foist upon Israel, Israel must take a page out of the Arab playbook and simply walk out of the negotiations and then face whatever pressures will come from virtually every direction. Israel must insist that peace cannot equal suicide and Israel will not permit the world to force her to return to the pre-Six Day War boundaries known also as the Green Line. An Israeli return to the Green Line would guarantee a new Arab Israeli War which would be kicked off by a barrage of various sized rockets raining down upon the greater Tel Aviv metropolitan area resulting in horrific destruction and tens if not hundreds of thousands possibly even millions. The death toll after an hour of rockets with payloads from as small as ten kilograms to a couple kilotons of high explosives with the larger payloads targeting the towers in central Tel Aviv causing numerous collapses, would decimate Israel. These are fifty story plus tall buildings, dozens of them, collapsing each one with many thousands working inside daily. This would also destroy most of the Israeli power generation and grid, possibly break containment on a number of nuclear power plants, destroy Ben Gurion International Airport and hundreds of civil aircraft from numerous nations across the world. They could also do grave damage to a number of the military airfields and much of the communications grid within Israel crippling the Israeli military response and ability to call up reserves and coordinate military responses. Yet, the Green Line as a final border between Jordan and Israel will be exactly what Jordan will demand and might not even be the final demands they could insist upon. The deal breaker will be what it has always been, the five to eight million Palestinian Arab refugees who are descendants mostly of the original six-hundred-thousand Arabs who deserted Israel at the behest of the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, the Islamic leader for the Third Reich, friend of the top Nazi brass, commander of two SS Battalions in the Balkans and was in Berlin making broadcasts to the Arab world demanding for the Arabs to join the Nazis and assist them in cleaning the world of Jews by murdering every Jew in the Arab world. We admit that some were also cast from within Israel by the IDF largely due to their assisting the Arabs by attacking IDF positions and supply lines or permitting Arab special commando units to hide in their villages and carry out raids behind the lines. Some few were innocents, which is one of those horrors of war which are all but unavoidable.

 

In conclusion, the initial meeting will be difficult as the Jordanians will most definitely demand that Israel make concession and accept certain preliminary truths from which the negotiations will begin. It is possible that President Trump will pressure Israel to accept these preconditions and possibly even make some of the concessions assuring Prime Minister Netanyahu that these are just to get the negotiations started and if the negotiations fail, then these concessions and accepting of certain preconditions will be voided. The truth, no matter what President Trump promises, once Israel makes any concessions and accepts any preconditions, they will be made permanent by the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League, and probably 135 of the nations from the General Assembly. This apparent tidal wave backing the position that once Israel gave its word, no matter any idiotic promises from President Trump, they must become permanent because the nations will insist that with negotiations all concessions and accepted preconditions are a permanent set of principles. They will claim that there are no take backs once you leave the schoolyard playground and just because President Trump still believes in schoolyard rules does not mean that the rest of the world accepts such. Then come the condemnations of President Trump and Israel berating both until they collapse accepting the reality that Israel lost, boo-hoo.

 

When the eventual result of forcing Israel back to the Green Line, this will be the sole result that any Arab entity will accept if they are being generous. The other reality is any peace which the Arab world makes with Israel will not be a guarantee in any form that peace has been attained as long as there exists a Jewish State. The real and only final peace with Israel is the peace of the grave, simply because the Arabs believe that these lands were once Arab and Islamic so they must remain Arab and Islamic and if the Jews desire to reside in these lands, they are welcome to become Dhimmis living under Islamic rule for as long as the Arab masters are comfortable. Should the Arabs become uncomfortable with the Jews in their presence, they would be free to slaughter them and under Sharia such is perfectly legal. Isn’t it fun playing in the Arab and Islamic mind and so simply marvelous. We truly wish the Muslims who desire peace and acceptance of others had even the slightest chance of ever transforming Islam as Christianity transformed during the Reformation. We can hope, but the truth is that Islam had their reformation from which the concept of abrogation was adopted placing the Medina verses as superior to the Meccan verses, as we referred to above with a link giving an introductory explanation. These verses were far more violent and exclaimed the superiority of Islam over all other faiths and Sharia as the end set of rules for the entirety of the world which inevitably would fall to Islam and all would be subjugated surrendering to Allah. These verses also further made Allah as preferring Muslims and abjuring all others. This was the result of the first Islamic reformation which also places all followers of Islam to fit in one of three spheres. The holiest and highest sphere were those who took up Jihad and were the warriors who would conquer the world, the next circle were those who financed these wars of conquest and the final and lowest circle were those who assisted the Jihadists by hiding them, granting them shelter and providing the necessary needs of the moment while the Jihadists were preparing their attack. Any Muslim not placing themselves somewhere in support of Jihad were to be considered almost acting as seriously against true Islam as an apostate and were to be treated such that they would suffer similar fates.
