What is the Source Driving the Stabbing Intifada?

The experts have come out with their reasons for the current violence claiming that the Stabbing Intifada or the Intifada III and many of them completely miss the mark claiming that it is all about Arab nationalism. The actual attackers who are arrested will very likely give a plethora of reasoning for why they attacked Israelis hoping their targets were Jewish. Some will claim they did it to force Israel to give the Arabs a state. Such reasoning has so little reason and logic to it that one must question what the underlying reasons exist. Some will claim they did it simply to kill Jews because the Jews are the enemies of Islam meaning their reason was religious. Many would give completely different excuses or reasons if they were questioned on every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for three weeks. What you would only hear on the rarest of occasions was that they really were not sure why they tried or succeeded in murdering an Israeli. Due to the constant drumbeat of incitement in all forms of media and especially on the social media and entertainment, they saw killing a Jew as a way to fame and financial security for the family plus gained honor for their family. What is not taken into consideration is what the reality is in the entire Arab/Israeli Conflict, and that is the fly in the ointment.

Whenever there is an Intifada, it is the result of increased incitement mixed with actual attacks by terrorists with a clean record as far as the Israeli authorities’ records thus not considered affiliated with any of the terror entities. A small number of these are over a short period of time coordinated with concentrated glorification blended with celebratory remembrances of terror heroes from previous Intifadas complete with the naming of parks, streets and other events or celebratory naming with possibly the honoring with speeches and sermons for the terrorists who are committing the current murders. This would have the effect ripe for others to be given the slightest impetus to go and commit their own attacks against Israelis. Since the initial attacks were committed using knives, then knives became the weapon of choice until there was the incitement calling for vehicular attacks and then some vehicular assaults began to happen. There were even some shooting attacks even without any raw instigation aimed at such but they were rewarded with recognition right along with the stabbers and drivers who targeted Israelis. The real defining forces behind the Intifada are also those who define the reason behind the need for such tactics. Why the individual attackers went out has no effect on the reasons that the conflict continues without any solution, and that is the reason that these youths are ending up in hospital and worse, giving their lives for something they do not even understand. They are risking throwing away their lives for a cause defined by the few people at the top of Fatah and Hamas who both have only two actual aims for their continuing the conflict; the complete destruction of the Jewish State of Israel followed by the eradication of Jews world-wide while also placing the entire world under the yoke of Islam. I know, nobody thinks about conquering the world since World War II and the Cold War as that proved that such was an impossible task as the Roman Empire failed, the Greek Empire Failed, the Persian Empire failed, the Mongol Empire failed, the British came close through colonization as did Spain, France, Portugal, Netherlands, and other colonialists and neither did the Ottoman Islamic Empire succeed in conquering the world. Probably the closest any nation had come to conquering the world would be American culture.

The problem is nobody bothered to tell the Muslim world who believe that they will one day rule Andalusia replacing Spain and Palestine replacing Israel then take the Balkans followed by Rome along with the rest of Europe which is part of the reasoning behind the refugee invasion into Europe. The refugees have a fairly significant number of Islamists intermixed with the real refugees, the exact percentage is unknown but our belief, and this is pure conjecture, that somewhere between fifteen and twenty percent of the refugees. The majority of these plants into the refugee numbers are likely of two varieties, those who will lead instigations immediately causing disturbances hoping that the other Muslims will act as Islamic warriors and join these disturbances and possibly continue to cause disruptions even without the lead of the instigator planted amongst them. The other instigators are more likely planners whose jobs will come into play later when they work alongside the Imams who will be sent to lead the congregations of the new Mosques which will be started across Europe in every neighborhood from the smallest hamlet to the largest megalopolis such as London, Paris, Dresden and Marseilles. In most of these cities there are churches and even potentially Cathedrals which will be used as Mosques, a sad but obvious future just as the Hagia Sophia was converted into a Mosque by the Ottoman Empire.

The story in Europe has already been written and it is easy to read even today. Go into the Cathedrals and if they are open they have next to no parishioners. The same is true in the churches across Europe. In the previous communist nations, the Warsaw Pact nations there might be some who are going to their churches but most of them are far older and will dwindle over the coming decades. Meanwhile the Islamic women are producing babies and the Christian women will often end up marrying a Muslim man because he has drive and charm and something he believes in and that is an interesting aphrodisiac. Within the next few years Europe will accommodate their new arrivals and start slowly adopting Sharia. Get it straight that it is not called Sharia Law; it is just Sharia and is instrumental in changing lands from any religion to Islam. Don’t believe us just look at the entirety of the Middle East and across North Africa (MENA) and all you will find are pockets of beleaguered and desperate Christians; if you find any, you will find no or negligible numbers of Jews because they had already been sent out with only the old and the foolish remained behind. Now it is the time for the Christians to be finished off, to be given the inevitable choice Sharia eventually leads to, convert or die or if you take one of the early choices, run for your life possibly escaping in the dead of night with maybe two small suitcases leaving all else behind. The Christian numbers have been eroded across all of the nations in MENA until they can no longer offer real resistance to becoming Dhimmis under Sharia which eventually ends with convert or die. That law has already been applied to Saudi Arabia and will be followed by Iraq and the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) nations of the Arabian Peninsula. There are already churches across Europe and in the United States who have dissolved their congregations, if you can call the few they held a congregation, and these congregations are either finding a new congregation or slowly losing their religion altogether. This has happened and the Europeans who paid any attention saw it happen but that was close to a century ago and has not been as necessary in modern times. It has occurred over the last few decades, say about seven decades, where Jordan started the drive and the Arab Palestinians accelerated the driving out of the Christians from Bethlehem and Nazareth as well as less well known Christian communities within the areas controlled by Arabs within the area of Israel controlled by the Arab Palestinians or their sympathizers within Israel proper.

Bethlehem is the perfect example city as it was peaking around eighty percent of the population was Christian just half a century ago. They lived what might have been called a blessed place of contentment and protection under Jordanian occupation. Slowly it started and the city appeared to be slowly losing its Christian population. Many of the women, or at least far too many for the health of the community, were marrying Muslim men. The Muslim men often had more than one wife and they were producing babies at twice the rate or more than the Christians who were beleaguered and being slowly assaulted. After the Six Day War the Christians had a period of relief but still their numbers were waning while there were more and more Muslims. Once the Oslo Accords gifted Bethlehem to Arab control the die had been cast. The Arab Palestinians began a concerted effort to force the Christians from Bethlehem and the rest of their autonomous zones, areas which have been constantly expanding as they push the Christian and Jews from entire areas and replace them with Muslim families. Today it was Bethlehem; so will it really be Marseilles in the upcoming years?

It all appears innocent at first until these tactics of throwing stones through the display window every other week and the glass shop keeps raising the price as he knows your window had become a form of the Jizyah, the Islamic tax which non-Muslims must pay in order to be protected from the ravages of the young and easily molded youth who are otherwise attacking individuals or throwing stones through display windows and stealing merchandise often brazenly right in front of the store owner challenging them to say something. Should a store owner actually protest they will find their store soon ransacked and then they themselves will be marked for attack and be made fearful wherever they go? Eventually it all builds up and either the Christian family packs what they can carry and flee before they end up dead like their friend, and almost every Christian knows of a friend who simply disappeared or their mangled body was discovered in a very public place one morning. As the church loses patrons they eventually are forced to sell and the Muslims have the ready monies that is why there is the Jizyah has been collected towards, the down payment on the church, business, and home of a Christian who sees the writing on the wall and flees.

There is one place in all of the MENA areas where the numbers of Christians is growing and their congregations are quite healthy, and that is Israel within the Green Line. These Christians are raising their families and attending their churches as Christianity is flourishing in Eretz Yisroel because of the Jews being in control and accounting for over two-thirds of the population and control the schools and other media with the exception of social media which is replete with Islamic incitement and Islamic outreach designed to force young Christians from Christianity and into the Islamic fold and once there one is kept under control until the entire congregation has been converted, scared away or eventually murdered. This is what is in Europe’s future and also after that will come the United States unless people realize the hole left in their lives where once there was fulfillment gained from believing in something and having a congregation as your community. Work will never create a community anything like or as strongly bound as a congregation which prays together and shares their beliefs. That is the lost element which could have saved Europe and the United States and why Israel will only grow stronger as the Jews are rediscovering their faith and the powers of faith in Hashem as he does indeed work miracles if only the people stop and notice, but who can stop and notice anything with the hectic schedules most people and their children spend their time running around trying to be complete. Religion filled that empty spot and provided that sense of fulfillment that so many are seeking in all the wrong places. Trust that I understand this first hand as I used to run from one replacement to the next and thankfully finally found the item I had unsuccessfully and blindly sought, and I found it is my religion where it had been all along. It is like hiding in plain sight which is often the darndest thing to find as so few look at what is right in front of them as in the picture above, the symbol of faith which once was the glue which held Marseilles together is the Cathedral right in the center of town as lectured above. When that Cathedral has been converted to a Mosque then all is lost and there may be no turning back. The choice is there for everyone in the western World, they just need to awaken in time.

Most of the time we have referenced to stories which harbor some severe implications for society and our world going forward. Still, things have the potential to take turns far worse than we have been willing to admit. The nuclear deal with Iran was one prime instance where our reports have avoided taking any extremist lines and tried to remain with the hopes that the actual agreement would prove to have some semblance of sanity. We really wished to report that all is not lost and that despite the obvious reports of gloom and doom still left a single ray of sunshine. We had hoped that the IAEA would at the very least be able to inspect any nuclear site within six weeks of requesting access. We realize that this sounds like wishing on a star and seeing if it gets us very far but the IAEA has proven to be thorough and competent with the ability to find that one part per million which the cleansing of the site missed. That probably was very wishful thinking but that is still preferable to screaming before every last morsel of honest assessment had shown there is no hope. Well, the other shoe has dropped, to utilize an old phrase, and that is the fact that there are parts to this deal that were reached apparently and were negotiated outside of the actual negotiations which included Secretary of State and the leaders of the North Korean talks from the United States Department of State along with the committee members from Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany on one side of the table and the Iranians on the opposite side (it was a very big table with one side apparently stretching on forever and the Iranian side manned by at most ten to twelve negotiators). There have been reports and a confirmation from, of all people, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and current United States National Security Advisor Susan Rice, the proud Administration water carrier and front person for the Benghazi lie blaming a little seen YouTube video, when she brought witness to the Senate hearings on the Iran Nuclear Deal that there is another entire additional set of rules and agreements reached between undisclosed people from Iran and undisclosed representatives of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and people from the White House but apparently not Secretary of State John Kerry and the rest of the merry band of United States negotiators, reached and agreed upon to be included sight unseen in the Nuclear Deal. This additional set of protocols and other undisclosed items which is presumably to be provided to the Senate Investigating Committee in closed door high security setting (we just can hardly contain ourselves waiting for the unofficial leaks concerning this testimony and the denials from the White House and top Republican Senate water carriers) explaining the details of this agreement within the agreement hammered out between the White House and undisclosed representatives of President Obama (we suspect that includes the former National Security Advisor to the President and the current United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power) and the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and undisclosed Iranian representatives without the participation or knowledge of the other five members of the P5+1; which would be Russia, China, France, Germany and Great Britain, and slipped into the agreement under super-secret conditions and without the knowledge of all the P5+1 negotiators including Secretary of State Kerry. This was given further confirmation by Secretary of State Kerry during his testimony where he admitted that there was such a set of additional protocols and other determinations and agreements which were to be included and were really a separate deal made by the White House along with representatives of the IAEA and Iran that Secretary Kerry had been briefed by some undisclosed person who had allegedly actually read this additional agreement in full but which Secretary Kerry had not read despite agreeing for it to be included in the agreement he was bringing to the Congress and that he had no access to as the actual agreement is in the hands of the IAEA who have thus far not only neglected to show Secretary Kerry the terms but apparently have considered Secretary Kerry too much of a risk to allow him access now or potentially even after the Senate has been briefed, and potentially some members permitted to read what will be sworn is the entirety of the additional side agreement, and the Senate, the American people and the rest of the world whom this might be source of unfathomable harm are to trust that the IAEA and President Obama and his Administration team who put this ancillary binding agreement together apparently in order to clarify and stipulate to limitations and other necessary protocols such that with these additional surrenders by the Administration of the ability for the world to be granted the slightest glimpse of the Iranian nuclear program despite what the actual agreement worked out mostly publically before the world, this secretly negotiated agreement supersedes the actual agreement where stipulated but remaining undisclosed to the United States negotiators and the rest of the P5+1 negotiators. If I have this right we are to trust President Obama that this further agreement which will remain a secret shared only with the appropriate Presidential Administration unnamed representatives, unnamed Iranian representatives and unnamed representatives of the IAEA who will also be the holders of the actual agreement and only permitting those deemed qualified to peruse the super-secret agreement to see the actual, or at least the purported actual as how is one to know for sure, and then include it unseen into the agreement which the United Nations Security Council had already cemented all these terms into a Chapter Seven binding agreement. Wow, we are surely glad that was all settled up so nice and clean and without a single drop of blood spilled thus far and for how much longer only the super-secret ancillary agreement and the few privileged to view the finished terms, namely those who fashioned the wording which may or may not include President Obama. It would be interesting to inquire of the President whether even he knows exactly what is in this part of the agreement to which he presumably will sign his name guaranteeing the United States will comply with an additional set of protocols and what-not without having complete foreknowledge. As a show on the Science Channel here asks in its title, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”

 

We sure do feel better knowing that the negotiations have all been a dog and pony show put on for the mutual entertainment of the mainstream media, the media pundits, bloggers, editorialists and the world’s public at large while another whole framework and deal has been hammered out between White House unnamed entities and their Iranian counterparts, also nameless, which we suspect had been agreed upon back within weeks if not days or merely hours and which deal included parts we likely have already seen play out and that was namely the public show would continue postponing any deal until the Iranians had sufficient time to produce the dozen nuclear devices which Administration leaks have claimed exist and were almost enriched past the twenty percent level which would have made the resulting uranium attain HEU (highly enriched uranium often abbreviation used to denote weapons grade) and fashionable into at the least a dozen warheads depending on the complexity of the weapons and whether they were to be the initiator for a thermonuclear warhead, a design it is feared may have ‘accidentally’ given to the Iranians before the year 2000 in an attempt to mislead their developers but which failed as the individual attempting to pass off designs with built-in flaws which would have sent the developing scientists down a divergent path but the agent made the necessary correction when he feared the receiving scientist had detected one of the flaws and he realized that coming clean was the only way he could save himself, so the Iranians, North Koreans and the Chinese ended up with one advanced thermonuclear warhead design which took the United States nearly a decade to design and figure out all the required parameters and detonation sequencing. This little gem was loosed during the early George W. Bush Presidency within the initial three months when somebody came across the files on this case and leaked the information before it was buttoned down and sent down the information drain which leads to the black box which has no key (place for highly secret deals and information including especially damaging or humiliating evidence of complete and total incompetence, this gem could not have been executed by George W. Bush as he had not been in office anywhere near long enough to set up such a scheme which would take years to develop). The question that requires being asked will remain notable largely due to the absence of being expressed. At some point it would be nice to find out if the incessant postponing of the final date when the parties agreed upon terms which appeared to have been almost the exact same terms which had been bandied about from the outset of the talks, terms that both sides had known would be the final agreement point largely because there had been private talks between President Obama and representatives of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei back before and immediately after President Obama won a second term. One can only suspect that this was the outset for the actual agreement which will not be the piece of paper being signed with as little pomp and ceremony as possible as all the parties are aware of the worthlessness of the agreement they worked to achieve as the real agreement was hammered out in private by the President’s team and the Iranian representatives, the rest was a show put on as a part of the original agreement and was used to grant Iran time to complete their enrichment of most of their uranium which had been purified to twenty percent. There was absolutely no way that the Iranians were going to give up on the entirety of their uranium which necessitated one or at most two runs through cascades of centrifuges they already had built and tested in preparations for enriching these exact stores. Expecting the Iranians to neutralize all of their moderately enriched uranium would be just as insane as believing that Bashir al-Assad gave up all his chemical weapons stores which was evidenced by his chlorine bombs and the nerve agent found and used by Syrian rebels for which somehow al-Assad was blamed after-all if he had turned everything over the rebels would never have come across some stores of them.

 

After all these delays and the fact that there was an actual deal already agreed upon between the United States and Iran which was partly evidenced when President Obama ordered the lifting of a number of sanctions and released what will be a drop in the bucket compared to the amounts of monies to be released to the Iranians within the next sixty to seventy days; the signing will be done, in secret if necessary, as it is a done deal already written in stone by the United Nations Security Council, the sole entity within the United Nations which can issue binding agreement as we have now witnessed. All has been gathered together and placed in a neat arrangement in order to conceal the super-secret terms concealed in the center of the agreement such that none of it is visible to the public and the promised most transparent administration in history once again had operated in the shadows while misleading the world and the American people, that three percent paying attention. The Administration gave all a brief glance at a carefully constructed view which left the actual deal slipped into the center pages of the agreement where it can remain concealed without informing the allies or the United States negotiating team or the American people. We can assume quite a lot from small comments here and a nervous chortle to a question there all of which depicts a very careful surrender of the American right to have a presence in the Middle East or even to advise and express preferences. The main part of the agreement is not completely about the uranium enriched path to a bomb or even a dozen bombs, it was and always will be for the remaining months, days, hours or even minutes and seconds which time will be wasted or alterations are already in progress to destroy the United States military and its ability to extend its reach beyond the American shores as that is the main unfinished business of the Obama administration. With the American surrender before the granted Iranian might the sole remaining item on the agenda of President Obama is to force Israel to join the NPT (Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons) and order and carry out on the destruction of any Israeli nuclear warheads or bombs. Should President Obama fail on his quest to denuclearize Israel then Iran will not be the sole nuclear power in the Middle East and thus will remain opposed and Israel may actually continue to exist for the time being. The real question is how the peacemakers are going to prevent the entirety of MENA nations (Middle East and Northern Africa) who desire and have an actual government from going nuclear and starting the most dread of nuclear arms race, a race which arms some of the world’s most diametrically opposed foes and an area of nations which divide up in so many different members uniting officially and also unofficially that there would be no possible way to stand within such a world and prevent every potential nuclear standoffs from India and Pakistan, to Yemen with Iran and Saudi Arabia, to Algeria and Libya, to Morocco and Mauritania and to anybody or to almost everybody against Israel. A map of MENA nations is almost up to date and is only missing the Sudan, and as the Sudan was split after years of tribal and religious violence, South Sudan; and some go so far as to include Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Djibouti, Eretria, and Somalia.

By the time everything about the super-secret deal are known it will both be way too late to undo or significantly mitigate the results of the intentional feckless and intentional perfidy being committed by President Obama. Were his actions taken by any President before 1980 and perhaps starting a decade later they would have been impeached and tried for treason all at the same time. This irresponsible diluting to the point of being meaningless all treaties against the proliferation of nuclear weapons and especially in an area as volatile as the Middle East and Africa one may as well throw in South America which we feel assured will follow suit just not to be left out as well as this spreading throughout all of Africa. Additionally, does anybody honestly believe for one second that if Boko Haram had some dirty bombs or even worse actual nuclear warheads strapped down inside large SUVs they wouldn’t use them against Christian neighborhoods, schools etcetera in their crazed desire to denude all of Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and other nearby Christian areas continuing until they reached the shark-infested waters off South Africa? Does anybody believe that Hamas would not, as a part of their reconstruction of Gaza, not place a nuclear device inside a cement truck with an armored cab (driver’s seat and area of operations) and drive it through the Gaza barrier (which is only a chain link fence monitored by remote camera receiving stations) and head north and get as far into central Tel Aviv or near the petroleum processing plants and detonate the device? The answer to either question, if one is being honest, now there is a concept, is of course they would and then some. How long would Kurdish people last if their adversaries had nuclear weapons, or the Druze, Yazidi (who were close to wiped out with conventional weapons and barbarity, or a list of other peoples and the terrorist lurking within or just over the border. Is it at all possible that Syrian Dictator Bashir al-Assad would not have used tactical nuclear weapons on his own people in place of the barrel bombs he did use? The miracle is that we have not blown all quasi-intelligent life off the face of this planet and with us the rest of the large animals thus leaving future archeologists to figure out what it was that caused human-kind to cease to exist in the early parts of the twenty-first century. They will be confused as to the source of the problem which caused mankind to fight nearly to the last man woman and child. Whatever is the next creature which becomes intelligent and is humankind’s replacement will have some difficult questions to ask or to answer unless we as a people take control of our destiny. If it were but that easy for the people to take control of their destiny but unfortunately the vast majority of us are consumed by what the Roman rulers called bread and circuses. The Romans do not get the credit they deserve as they truly knew what would keep the people docile and oddly it was being given their necessary doses of violence every so often. They timed their entertainment such that they were not denied matches going to their finality but as gladiators were expensively trained they could not very well be killed off in a casual manner. All too often men who were convicted of vile crimes were given the opportunity to change their fate in the arena against other convicts if they were lucky, against a trained gladiator, either way the convicts chances were quite poor as the best the only one permitted what one might consider their freedom was the right to fight for their freedom or to more likely die trying. The games have changed but the political target is the same, distractions, distractions and more distractions along with industrialized farming which produces an increased crop which feeds the people and due to subsidies paid to those farming conglomerates as well as the other farmers with the intent of keeping the public well fed, some might claim overfed. Bread and circuses is still the magic formula just as the Romans quieted their public with ample water, ample food, which is subsidized if necessary, and ample entertainment with cable television, movie theaters and sport stadiums where rather than feed the players to the beasts we have player almost as powerful on both sides as they all contest over the winner getting the pigskin for their victory.

 

But we fear a greater contest is on the horizon no matter where one looks and once again the Europeans are ill prepared for this contest and the United States military is also in a stand down size and equipment. Additionally, thanks to the efforts of arms dealers and politically correct rather than honestly correct have squandered their positions by allowing every immigrant to remain and thus you gave your enemy a path within your gates and they are in the heart of every civilization and they are becoming restless as we have not accommodated their every demand and surrendered before them and before their deities. While our enemies were setting up bases from which to operate we were running around like Don Quixote tilting at windmills and calling them great dragons or demons. While they were making plans and scheming about the day when they will unleash the dogs of war while we worried about under-inflated pigskins and ruination of one we could have called a hero though we will be needing real heroes really soon and in numbers unknown. This may be the longest and most drawn out war as it has been being waged already for over fourteen-hundred years through times of peril and times where the conflict seemed in remission but alas it was only catching its breath until the time came and presented itself vulnerabilities in the technologically slaved society. How easy have you made your defeat as your entire ability can be wiped clean within a few seconds as the power grid goes dark. No internet, no GPS, no television, no microwave and soon the morning after the worst hits home, no coffee or tea, easier and to the point, no caffeine. Simply put no electricity and almost every item we depend upon stops including water and sewage treatment and removal. There have been reports and evidence emerging which indicates that the Western vulnerability to an EMP attack is unthinkable. Should a massive EMP weapon, nuclear or purely electronic, and the transformers be knocked out or only three quarters of them destroyed across the United States and Canada it would take as long as six to twelve years before power would be restored to the dwindling number of survivors as prediction actually say worst case scenario and over nine out of every ten people would perish as would the vast majority of crops would not be able to replant the next year as the genetically modified crops are sterile and with the labs shuttered there would be no new seed for the new year. This is just another case of our technology working against our very survival. Almost all of these difficulties could be prevented for ten-billion dollars. That is the price of hardening the entire electrical grid for most of North America covering all of the continental United States, Canada and even much of Mexico and Alaska, of course. With the electricity protected and on we will also have water, food, medicines, fertilizer, hospitals, medicines and almost life as usual. There would still require a checkup on the transformers and other parts of the electric grid. Europe is facing an identical problem set and requires the same though potentially higher priced solutions. After any attempt to take down the electrical grid fails we need to ready for terror assaults on what are deemed soft targets such as those very same transformers, especially the larger versions which make the power ready for home and business usage. All of the potential attacks are intended to tie up resources and force our leadership, both civilian and military, to take resources away from defense of borders and thus have them out of position should an assault come such as a second strike attempt except this time the missiles are carrying high yield warheads of nuclear weapons if they have been produced and high explosive if that is the best available. Any way we look at the Iran deal, especially knowing that there was some kind of alternate deal made through backdoor channels while we were watching what we thought were the negotiations to reach an actual deal and not that the actual deal had already been reached and the above board negotiations were part of the bread and circuses while whatever the real objective was reached under the table and behind our backs. If the deal made in view was as bad as could be, exactly how much did the United States give away when we could not see the machinations. If the backdoor deal was many degrees worse than the upfront deal, as we suspect; we had best be ready for almost anything to break loose but not until the United States or Israel, whichever is denoted for the initial strike, so it will likely be just before or soon after inauguration day as the new government has not even found the shelters or the bathrooms yet, let alone plan a war strategy. In Israel it would be timed for between governments but after the election while there really is no government as the coalition has yet to form. Those are the weakest points in parliamentary governance and federated republic governance, may we surprise ourselves as we may be counting on exactly that to come out of it in one piece.
