Jews Who Are Counter-Productive on Israel

 

The extreme leftist Jews love to protest their self-proclaimed Israeli occupation of Judea and Samaria. You talk to any of them and they will proudly claim that Israel has no desire to pursue peace. They will tell you all about how Israel is illegally occupying Judea and Samaria under International Law. They will go on about how the area of Judea and Samaria are the Palestinians homeland and that Israel must return the lands immediately and stop stalling. They will claim that it is Netanyahu who refuses to meet with Mahmoud Abbas despite any and all evidence to the contrary. And their favorite pastime is protesting Israel loudly and proudly claiming that their Jewishness safeguards them from any charges of anti-Semitism. With their sanctimoniousness, it is difficult to have to deflate their confidence in the complete faultlessness of their arguments. The one thing that is even better is most of the claims in the rest of this article could mostly be applied to virtually all the students protesting Israel with the exception of those instigators and inciters used by NGO’s to lead so many students to protest Israel using pseudo-information that they know are pure propaganda mixed with unadulterated lies with an occasional statistic or fact mixed in for the sake of making everything else credible.

 

One of their points is that Israel took the land in the 1967 war. This they actually have correct. They claim they stole it from the Palestinians who were not even combatants in the war. This is tricky because if there were actually any people by the name of Palestinians at that time, they were not combatants. The problem is there were no Palestinians and the closest thing was the PLO which had no claims to Judea and Samaria but did claim all of Israel within the Green Line and was sworn to defeat the Jews driving them into the Sea to drown or killing them where they stood. The area of Judea and Samaria at the time between 1948 and the Six Day War was occupied; let us get this straight, that is occupied illegally, by Jordan. Jordan took control of this land during the War to Annihilate the Jews fought by over a half dozen Arab Armies against Israel starting on the morning of her birth. Jordan held half of Jerusalem and the areas of Judea and Samaria which was part of the guaranteed areas west of the Jordan River which were to be the State of Israel after an agreement reached with the British upon allowing the formation of the Arab State of Jordan. Jordan illegally annexed the land and their action was recognized by only two nations, Britain and Pakistan. After the attempt at destroying Israel by the judgement of the Peel Commission, Britain trying to help destroy Israel at every turn is quite believable (see map below). Fortunately, the Peel Commission was rejected, as was the annexation by Jordan. Even the Arab and Muslim world outside of Pakistan rejected their annexation. Also, in the War to Annihilate Israel which raged on and off through 1948-9, Egypt gained control over Gaza though they never attempted to annex the land. Jordan and Egypt both threw all the Jews from their homes and lands and Jordan went further and gifted land to many Jordanians of presumed merit though most never utilized these lands. This was a means of removing all Jewish claims to the lands. The Jordanians also illegally forced numerous Jordanian citizens to relocate onto the lands they illegally held against International Law and gave Jordanian citizenship to all Arabs living in the area. These are truths that these protesters ignore likely because they were never educated in history and were never curious enough to seek the truth themselves.

These wonderful and wide-eyed leftists right out or still incubated in college or university take on complete faith their professors tales of the crimes committed by Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers which are just as big of lies as was Mahmoud Abbas trying to pass the Palestinian incitement of which he personally has taken the lead as educating their children in peace to President Trump, a lie which has been revealed using Abbas and his own words. What their professors never taught their young charges was Jewish history and the Twelve Tribes of Israel and that Israel held both sides of the Jordan River and for her northern border she had the Litani River which is inside Lebanon today and holds the Hezballah terrorist army between the Litany River and the Blue Line, the Israeli northern border with Lebanon (see map below). The Tribes of Israel included the best snow skiing in the Middle East on Mount Hermon and the medicinal waters of the Dead Sea. The Golan Heights and the Kinneret were all within her borders. What do these snowflakes from University know of this history? Probably little or nothing.

 

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

 

Israel is not reluctant to make peace. Israel offered to give Judea and Samaria back to their illegal occupiers, Jordan, when the two nations reached their peace just as she had offered to return Gaza to Egypt and both refused, as there was an Arab plan to hatch. That plan was to invent a new Arab people called the Palestinians who were going to claim that they had a history in the lands. Inspect their claims and then read the Jewish history and you do not have to take modern Israelis view, read the Old Testament, the Torah (Five Books of Moses) as well as the rest of the Bible which includes Kings and Prophets and Judges. Read the entirety of the Jewish history written in the time in which it was made by those who lived and saw it in real time. The Israelite, the Jews, beginning in these lands came when Joshua crossed the Jordan and sacked Jericho, defeated five armies at Ai and then conquered the south and began the conquest of the north which had to be left for those who followed to complete, but the promise was kept and Hashem laid the land open before the Jewish People and they swelled within. Saul was anointed King and then David ruled and then Solomon who built the First Temple and the lands flourished. But it all started when they crossed the Jordan River and Joshua led the Army into the lands and began the defeat of the Canaanites, not the Arabs by any name and especially not any Palestinian Arabs who Abbas or another official once claimed lived in the lands nine thousand years ago. Well, then the Canaanites must have driven them out as they were not present for Joshua to conquer when he entered the lands just over three-thousand-five-hundred years ago, that is around 1489 BCE, in case you were wondering. (His route to the conquest of the holy Lands and the start of the nation in the Promised Lands can be seen in the map below.) The history is quite remarkable and probably a far easier and more interesting read than your chemistry books and mathematics books, at least as I remember them from my days back in the stone age.

The realty is quite a bit different, as the area known as Judea and Samaria belonged to Israel under International Law and was illegally occupied by Jordan from 1948 up until the Six Day War; Israel did not conquer the area as Israel liberated lands that belong to Israel from Jordanian occupation. The Arabs residing in the area were holding Jordanian passports and identifications and were citizens of Jordan which meant that by International Law Israel could have made them relocate back into their country which had forced many to move into these lands; they legally could, and maybe should, have sent them back into Jordan. Having sent them all into Jordan immediately and reclaiming what was legally Israel would have saved Israel all the headaches they have faced ever since. The reason that Israel did not relocate the Arabs was simple; Israel is not a normal nation but a nation of people who are supposed to lead by showing the world a better face for humanity, a better way of treating one another, simply to be a light unto the nations. Unfortunately, Israel is located in an area where civility is seen as weakness and mercy as a form of surrender. Israel’s enemies know that the Jews are not a cruel people and use this against Israel. The professors in the universities know the youngsters in their charge are neophytes as far as historical knowledge and that their words are unquestioned by their students and thus they use them as their personal weapon against what they believe is the greatest evil in the world today, their own nation. As leftists, they cannot help but find that religious people are inherently evil and unthinking and all the things they despise most. This is why they tell lies about Israel and the Jewish People, their own people. Their little charges will grow as they enter the world and meet people with different perspectives and more knowledge which was not provided back in all their years of schooling, which is why it is known as the College of Hard Knocks in which I am working on my doctorate and that takes a lifetime. Learn whose land it was under International Law before you decide that someone is breaking International Law because when it comes to Israel, the world is attempting to coop and break International Law day in and day out, and they are doing so against their favorite people to blame for all their own ills, the Jewish People. Again, read history throughout the ages and remember the admonition we received from the All Knowing, in every generation there will be one to rise up against you. The one was not a person as much as an enemy, and this time the one is everyone and they have used you. Learn history, learn International Law, learn from the sages through the ages, and learn about the Jewish People and when you have learned a lifetime of learning, then we can talk. Learn, most important of all, on your own and trust very few, just the few who have proven that they will not lie to you and are not going to candy coat the truth even if that truth is difficult to swallow and goes against everything you think you know. First, test what everyone says by seeking out those who hold the opposite opinion and then check each one’s sources. The first we would recommend is the Bible as it holds a few thousand years of knowledge in a single book with some tremendous stories which will amaze you.

When Does Enough Become Enough?

 

How many Jews need to be stabbed, run over or set ablaze with firebombs before the world says that Israelis should be permitted to fight back against these murderous attacks? The answer appears to be when the last Jew in Israel has been murdered, or better known as never. If Israeli security prevents an Arab assault by shooting dead the terrorist attacker it is called extra-judicial vigilantism. If instead the Israeli security shoots and disables the attacking terrorist and then give them top notch treatment in Israeli hospitals and returns to their family whole and with all limbs functioning as well as the day they took a knife and attacked an innocent Israeli, then Israel is causing them to be disabled and thus a drain on the limited funding of the Arab Palestinian society. The only way that the Israelis would be permitted to stop such murderous activities is if the terrorist died of exhaustion stabbing Jews and other Israelis and then Israel would likely be accused of not permitting the terrorist to have a normal sleep cycle. But there are some factors which the world willfully ignores about this stabbing Intifada which deserves investigation.

 

First item is that when these terrorists strike at those residing in Israel, they have planned them quite well attacking areas where the percentage of Jews is highest. Those who have used their employment in Jewish communities to gain entrance to the neighborhood can choose their victim carefully. This was the case this week when the stabbing attack at a branch of the Rami Levy Supermarket in Sha’ar Binyamin in which Tuvia Yanai Weissman, an American citizen, was murdered. Security cameras revealed the two terrorists roamed the aisles of the Ram Levy store for more than a quarter of an hour before attacking the couple killing the husband and injuring his wife before two other patrons at the store ended the attack responding to the distress calls by the victims. The terrorists were shot and taken for treatment at an Israeli hospital. It bears noting that the terrorists would be treated by Israeli physicians. When we say an Israeli hospital treated them it means the physician and nurses and other hospital staff could be from any background including Arab, Jewish, Christian or other parentage as in Israel all are permitted to study what they wish and become anything their intelligence and hard work will provide for them. When the terrorists attack, no matter how careful they may be in choosing a target which is Jewish, as long as the person attacked cannot be determined by manner of dressing and wearing religious clothing such as a Yamaka, the terrorist has a one in three chance of attacking an Israeli of other than Jewish religious background including a fellow Muslim, a Christian or one of the other religions represented within Israeli society.

Still, what will it take for the world instead of screaming about the Israeli response to violent murderous assaults with force of their own to actually hold that the initial attack is the root of the problem, not Israelis, particularly Jews, defending themselves. Could it be that Jews have been forced by their societies to play only the part of victim which bothers these people about Jews defending themselves? Can it be that in their eyes of an idealized world Jews would be forbidden of availing themselves of the basic right of self-defense? Granted that living amongst these peoples of the world, Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Europeans, Americans and any other places where such is true have so accustomed themselves to the helpless Jew living at the behest of their presumed betters. Their social customs often left the Jews no protection other than living in their designated areas and not intersecting with their host civilization but allowed to service their needs. Jews were forced to reside in the ‘Jewish zone’ where they theoretically could not infect their neighbors with any Jewishness as if being Jewish were caused by some virus and was an affliction, a contagion which could become infected. A basic amongst their beliefs was that the Jew was inferior and must never be permitted to own weapons. This may be a part of their trepidations, that if the Israeli Jews in Israel have weapons, then the Jews in their countries will demand the right to arm, and that is something they feel they must never permit as the unarmed Jew is the contained Jew. As long as the Jews remain over there and know their place, then society can function “normally” with all as it should be. Israel upsets that balance.

 

The sad reality is that the Western World may not have much left of their culture and society should the tap on basically open enrolment for citizenship continue much longer. The shaky balance is radically shifting and when one adds the regressive influence this unchecked influx brings with them a completely different culture and many bring absolutely no marketable skills. That means that many of the new citizens will avail themselves of the cornucopia of welfare and other support functions without adding anything into the societies where they settle. This net cost will damage such countries such as Germany which still has a robust economy, cripple the nations with lesser economic health, devastate any nation already on the brink of failure utterly pushing beyond the cusp of financial solvency those nations teetering on the edge such as Italy and France. Europe was already precariously balanced with the hope that the weaker economic powers could be injected with funds sufficient to stimulate their economies back towards some semblance of solvency. Now, with one million plus new denizens about to lay an economic strain on Germany, the Scandinavian nations and anywhere else economic promises of support to be provided these otherwise hopeless peoples will sap every last Euro and there will come that point where the native populations within Europe explode. Supporting Greece or Italy or Spain or even France once their new socialist government overtaxes the producers to finance the ever-growing class of takers and one adds in the refugees who have little to add other than a colorful new segment of society needing almost total care while adding almost nothing useful in Europe. There should be some manner of support granted Europe by those Arab and Muslim nations who refused to care for these people who are their closest match to their populations but were turned away quite possibly with the intent on their eventually being taken in by the Europeans and thus becoming Europe’s problem.

 

But the problem will not be contained solely within Europe. As the European nations realize the damage they have caused their nations and the continent as a whole through acquiescing and taking some of the burden started by Germany’s Angela Merkel, they will seek relief from the error of their ways. This will add to the numbers already being permitted to seek refugee status in the United States and Canada. The new Canadian liberal government will bring in numbers beyond what that nation can survive and they too will seek a relief by sending their refugees to the United States as well. During his final year President Obama will respond to these urgent calls for assistance and use actual existing immigration quotas in order to facilitate the entry of half to three quarters of a billion, that is as many as seven-hundred-fifty million refugees by using the fact that many are coming from places within Europe as filling European national quotas. This will be the method of entry for Syrian, Iraqi, Afghani, Pakistani and other Arab and central Asian refugees without needing to go to Congress for special permission which would be required if these refugees were being brought to the United States by honest means.

 

What this has to do with Israel is an easy question to answer. Thus far Israel has treated injured people from the Syrian war without any questions as to whose injured they were, how they were injured and any other what could be uncomfortable questions. These people are treated for their wounds or other medical conditions and returned to Syria via the same manner by which they arrived. Israel is not nor has any plans on accepting a single refugee from the Syrian war or any of the other areas from where refugees currently originate. Israel took in her fair share of refugees as she pulled out of southern Lebanon. Granted the majority of those refugees were Arab Christians, still they were refugees. Israel absorbed refugees from Europe at the end of World War II and from across the Arab and Muslim worlds from 1946 to 1959 of near equal as to those taken in from Europe. Israel has accepted the Ethiopian Jews and the Bnei Menashe Jews from India and works to take in other long thought to be lost tribes including some who had originated in Morocco and ended up three-quarters the way up the Amazon River basin where two synagogues remain in service today. Many of these ancient Jewish tribes face persecution today much as they have throughout their histories and their clinging to their Jewish roots is something amazing and miraculous. The return of these refugees, refugees Israel does not demand others to take in and who would be refused by one and all anyway, that Israel has married into a single nation and has proven to be unbelievably inventive and building one nation which is benefitting the world being as they were commanded, a light unto the nations. But it will be pointed out that Israel did not take in their fair share of the Syrian and other Arab and Muslim refugees. Israel, it will be said, as one of Syria’s neighbors, should have accepted their fair share of refugees, perhaps four or five hundred thousand. That will likely be their starting number and it will rise with time until the claims will reach the ridiculous level and from there the numbers will go ballistic. Israel will always be singled out for special blame. Also, anytime things go awry, such as this misbegotten refugee situation, Israel will be called out for doing her share or not taking on a shared burden never recognizing the refugees Israel has taken in over the years. Problems are made to fit into one of two categories, Israel did not do enough or Israel went too far this time. When the subject is Israel, there is no range where things are in balance. With Israel if five-hundred-thousand is too much, then four-hundred-ninety-nine-thousand-nine-hundred and ninety-nine are too few. On the other hand, if five-hundred-thousand is too few then five-hundred-thousand and one is way over the top, what was Israel thinking. Israel is the epitome of you can’t win for losing.

Israel had the first field hospital up and running after the disastrous earthquake flattened Haiti a few years ago and still to this day the blood libel continued that Israeli efforts in Haiti were strictly to steal organs for transplant back in Israel. What a horrific claim to make and to make it without a shred of evidence is simply monstrous. The claim after every conflict involving Israel since 1980 has been that Israel constantly uses disproportional force. The implication in that claim is obvious; too few Jews are dying and the groups making that claim are the very same people who refer to the shooting of terrorists in the midst of their assaulting every target they can reach until stopped with some continuing to attack even after being shot and shot against until completely neutralized as being vigilantism or extra-judicial killings. One guarantee we are willing to make is that if the same violence were occurring in their streets they would demand their government take action to end the terror. That does not mean their government would act which would very soon lead to that very vigilantism of which they accuse Israel. Watch Europe over the next six months and see how they act. We can look back at the recent Paris attacks where the French authorities talked and negotiated and tried to find what the terrorists wanted, right? They offered them their own state with half of Paris and the Champagne region included with the wineries left intact, didn’t they? What, they shot them on the spot, imagine the cruelty. They just shot them without any trial or anything, just shot dead right in the street. Imagine the traumas caused by their actions; they wounded French society doing such a thing. Well, will you imagine that, the great moralizers of Europe and when the violence came to their streets and was murdering their citizens acted exactly as have the Israelis. Enough said, we will simply sit back and wait for the great moralizers to start their Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement against at the very least Paris if not the entirety of that violent nation, France. Truth be told, and we all understand and know this, the French did the right thing and the Israelis have done the right thing and there is only one way to act when facing unbridled terrorism, shoot the terrorists, period.

The difference when it is Israel, and not a problem when the French or anybody other than Israel treats terrorist murderers with hot lead and not cupcakes and ice cream, is their hatred of Israel, the Jewish State. It breaks down to plain and simple anti-Semitism. Call it criticizing the Israeli government, call it the horrific settlements, call it anti-Zionism, call it standing up for human rights, call it the moral thing for society to do, when the standards for Israel differ so starkly from the standards elsewhere, it is anti-Semitism. When Northern Cypress, occupied by Turkey; Tibet, the entire nation, occupied by China; Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara and no protests or burning of government officials in effigy but when Israel legally settles in lands which by treaty, the Oslo Accords, allow Israel to settle and the entirety of the lands are disputed, not occupied or final disposition determined except by high minded and heavy handed navel gazing moralists, then singling out Israel from the entirety of the world is anti-Semitism and not acting morally. It is likely the most immoral action a human being can take as anti-Semitism had proven ruinous and morally empty for over thirty centuries starting with Pharaoh. The real occupation was by Jordan and their relocation of people and their gifting and selling the lands were acts against international law but that never mattered. While Jordan occupied the lands and they could have been used to found a “Palestinian” State, that was not even a glimmer in anybody’s eye. The fact that the PLO was founded in 1964, a full three years before there was any Israeli occupation to protest unless the formation of the state of Israel is the occupation that was and still is what they are referring to. Let us repeat that, the “Palestinian” Liberation Organization with Yasser Arafat as its leader and Mahmoud Abbas as his second in command was founded in 1964 with its mission and goal the complete eradication of Israel and that is the exact mission statement it retains today while Mahmoud Abbas is numero uno. Calling the PLO the PA or Fatah makes it no different; their goal is the eradication of Israel, nothing less. Truth is this is the same Arab Israeli war from 1948 and the aim has not changed, just the tactics. Israel is at war, a slow and long war, Europe and the United States are about to join Israel in that war and we will see what effect if any it has on their views when they too are in a kitchen on fire.

Would Reykjavik Mind Answering One Question Before Boycotting

 

Reykjavik, Iceland’s Capital City, has taken a vote on a motion presented by Björk Vilhelmsdóttir, an outgoing councilwomen representing the Social Democratic Alliance, to boycott all products from Israel, not just the “territories” or the “occupied areas” but all goods Israeli until Israel has pulled all Israelis and other objects of the occupation from all Palestinian areas and allowed the Palestinian peoples to have their own independent homelands. There have been claims that since there have been no actual boycott items list, that this was purely a symbolic vote with some claiming it was just done as a parting gift for the retiring councilwoman. Might we suggest an acrylic award, as it appears gold watches are rather expensive and retiring councilpersons may be a short lived retirement should they feel they miss telling others how to live their lives. There may be a problem with meeting their demand even if Israeli leaders were at all inclined to fold before this immeasurable pressure; namely, exactly what are the actual acceptable borders for these so-called “occupied areas” so that Israel could satisfy the demand being made by the Reykjavik city council.

 

Truth be told, I am not all that surprised by the vote in Reykjavik. Nor would I be surprised by any of the leftist government councils, parliaments and other governances taking and passing similar pieces of legislation. I also do not see any of these governmental organizations actually implementing their “symbolic” legislation as it would, if carried to the extreme that Reykjavik’s legislation would cover as that would mean junking their computers, erasing their security programs leaving their networks open to malware and viruses except for the problem that the processors would have been removed already as part of their boycott. One must wonder if anybody with a stent permitting their hearts to function would have them replaced with the less effective older models which do not carry the medicine additive which makes the Israeli stents far more effective. The list of items which would need be replaced or completely done without is extensive and surprising. But as the government of Iceland has all but voided the Reykjavik boycott which a spokesperson for the Reykjavik Council stated that the boycott was not readily able to be implemented and was more symbolic than an actual policy. Their admitting the lack of intent to enforce the boycott when they found themselves being called and ridiculed or challenged, depending which groups’ reactions one chooses, put to sham any intent for enforcement.

 

Before posting today it has come to our attention that Reykjavik Mayor Dagur B. Eggertsson has realized a change of heart and decided that the decision is to be withdrawn. Apparently he claimed stating to the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service RUV, “Yes, the decision was poorly prepared. In the past I have taken great pride in preparing all big decisions thoroughly. I’ll admit here and now that I am angry with myself for not doing that, and for not having prepared the decision as well as I would have liked to. This was very unfortunate.” He may have been better off leaving this as his statement but, as with all too many politicians he added as a further explanation, “I have previously stated that we could have been far clearer in the text of the decision, even if the idea had always been this. It is important we make absolutely clear that this was the case.” Oh, so it was not phrased well enough and if the wording had been crafted a little more subtlety it would have been better? No, no matter how you phrase enjoining your city with the BDS movement and doing so up to the neck banning all things Israel is not going to fly as finally the world’s conscience has had enough ever since the BDS fiasco in Spain with Matisyahu being uninvited and then reinvited after the brouhaha appears to have been the bromide behind your limp and half wet backtracking. May this be the reaction for all other BDS against Israel so this sorry chapter can be brought to an end here and now. On the brighter side, Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur Davio Gunnlaugsson called Reykjavik’s actions “Absurd.” But that still leaves us with “The Great Question.”

 

We want somebody in Europe, the Arab League, the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA), Fatah, or anyone with some authority to answer as nobody has answered this necessary question which is required if Israel is to comply with vacating the lands claimed as part of Palestine by the various Arab entities to finally answer with maps and GPS coordinates and a final statement defining exactly what would be required of Israel to satisfy the Arab demands for the formation of some amorphous, undefined entity cynically referred to as Palestine. What is required before Israel gives up an additional millimeter of lands is a definition of exactly what borders are required to be vacated in order for all claims, all terrorism, and all other negative actions, accusations, protested or other negative actions against Israel to cease, end, and be permanently terminated and Israel allowed to live in peace with secure borders. Israel cannot accept what the European Union, the United Nations, European governments, NGOs, or any other entity other than Mahmoud Abbas and backed by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Iran and all the rest using the “Palestinian occupation” as their reason d’etre in denouncing and calling for Israel to be boycotted, attacked and terrorized or otherwise attempted to be destroyed, end of the entire demanding puzzle, and satisfactory conclusion, period. We in Israel have read of claims by Mahmoud Abbas which are not helpful, not helpful at all.

 

 

Abbas Accepting Map Depicting Palestine Replacing all of Israel and Looking Extremely Pleased

 

 

There is the one statement that Mahmoud Abbas made where he claimed that they only demand that the state of Palestine be formed with the twenty-two-percent which belongs to the Palestinian people. This was immediately locked onto and then defined as Abbas demanding just the areas of Judea and Samaria that Jordan once occupied and renamed West Bank. Others said that Abbas was only demanding the “West Bank” and Gaza. One would think that with Abbas claiming he just desires the twenty-two-percent that belongs to the Palestinians that everybody would have gotten their handy-dandy maps, protractors, compasses and calculators and all come to the same agreement on what Abbas was demanding. This begs then why there were such different descriptions. The “West Bank” measures 5,860 km2 and Gaza measures 360 km2 making the combined total 6,220 km2 while Israel (pre 1967 War) 20,582 km2 we can work out the math and the closest we get to that twenty-two-percent is if Abbas is only claiming the “West Bank” without East Jerusalem or Gaza which produces a figure of twenty-two and two-tenths percent of the land. There is another division which is far more familiar with in the Middle East and it comes from the British formation of Transjordan, today’s Jordan. When Britain divided up the British Mandate along the Jordan River it took the lands east of the Jordan River which measures seventy-eight percent of the lands to make what was then referred to as the Arab Palestinian State and the remaining twenty-two percent west of the Jordan presumably reserved for the Jewish State. If one were able to dig out the actual audio of Abbas he precisely stated that the end of the struggle with the Zionist entity when Palestine was established on its twenty-two percent of the Mandate lands. There were two Mandates in the area, the British Mandate and the French Mandate and the Palestinian state, should one ever be formed, would come only from the British Mandate and the only land mass measuring almost exactly twenty-two percent of Mandate lands is the lands, all the lands, west of the Jordan River, or the land which the pro-Palestinian Arab demonstrators chant, “From the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea, Palestine must be free.” The only other claims Abbas has made is that he would accept temporarily a settlement where the West Bank would be made into Palestine but that must be accepted if it includes the “Right of Return” for over five-million Arabs being thrust into Israel as he specifically states claiming they are Israel’s problem, not the Palestinian Authority’s problem. He also claims that the Arab Palestinians also must be permitted to continue their resistance to the occupation until all of Palestine is freed. What could he possibly mean by all of Palestine, the rest of Palestine? He means and always had meant that Palestine must replace Israel and the Jews must be expelled or otherwise removed from the Arab Lands by whatever becomes necessary.

 

But why would anybody trust that I might be stating any truths, anything completely honest. I do not demand such but until somebody can produce anything contrary where it gives actual demands which the Arab Palestinian Authority and the Arab nations still at war with Israel such as Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and a number of others and then we can begin to negotiate a solution which recognizes final borders where the Jews and the Arabs all get secure and recognized borders, security, peace, and an end to all further struggle or violence. We might take a glance at some of the depictions of the proposed State of Palestine from Abbas’s own PA schoolbooks and other media.

 

 

Palestinian Textbook Maps depicting Palestine as replacing Israel, not sharing the land in peace and security as the Europeans and the rest of the West insist to misrepresent

 

 

As stated in my plea above, please simply get Mahmoud Abbas or Saab Erekat to lay out a map depicting the borders for their idea of a Palestinian state which will signify a complete end to the terrorist war and all other forms of conflict including Lawfare and the BDS threat and allow for a permanent peace with all claims of occupation settled and final borders providing peace and security. It is a simple request which Yasser Arafat refused to define and Mahmoud Abbas has refused to define and Saab Erekat after him will also fail to define because once they reveal that the only solution they will accept is the destruction of Israel replacing it with Palestine and then the destruction of Jordan then Lebanon as Palestine moves to unify the world under their banner. There is little difference between Hamas and Fatah except that Hamas makes their claims in the name of Islam and Fatah makes its claims in the name of Palestine. Both groups believe they have been destined by Allah or the fates to rule the entire world. The western nations have forgotten the drive which had driven so many in history of conquering the world. Where the Western leaders have resigned and forgotten their former designs on world conquest but that drive is what drove the colonization of the Americas, Asia and Africa and is what is driving many in the Islamic world today. The drive for world conquest drives Islamic State as it does Hamas and Fatah as well as the Saudi Wahabbists and the Mullahs of Iran who believe by causing worldwide chaos they can hasten the return of the Mahdi who will lead them in the final conquest of the world for Allah and the Shiite form of Islam, well, unless Islamic State is able to reinitiate the Caliphate and conquer the world for Allah and the Sunni form of Islam. When their aim is the world does anybody really and honestly believe that they would allow Israel, all 20,582 km2 to stand in their way? Israel is just their appetizer and once they have gobbled down the appetizer, if they ever do, the soup and salad is Europe and Africa, the main course is the United States, Russia and China and the desert is whatever is left over unless we can make a space station or Moon and Mars bases as the Quran does not exactly command the conquest of those of mankind who managed to flee the planet before Islam took over everything, so they might be safe if they are self-sufficient. But just get a commitment that spells out what will satisfy their bloodlust and will bring the terrorism, rockets and war to an end, and then decide what should be done.

 

One last warning, look up the meaning in Islam of the world, the concept is more appropriate, of “Taqiyya.” That last bit kind of puts a wrench into the works, doesn’t it. Below is a small poster giving a basic and simple definition of the concept of “Taqiyya” followed by a short four minute video from the Center for the Study of Political Islam also about “Taqiyya.”
