Treating Terrorism in a Modern Democratic Governance

 

Terrorism and a Democratic free society pose problems which are not present in any of the totalitarian style governances such as Communism, Monarchies, Fascism or Religious totalitarianism. In these governances the security forces can literally close down almost all activity relegating their populations to carefully orchestrated movements. Work transportation can be set by government, shopping for groceries can be set to limited times and all other such commerce limited extremely or closed for the time period of the emergency. By turning the society into regulated movements with careful choreography then anything not conforming to the plan is immediately obvious and a concentration of forces will quickly return things to the ordered schedule. In such a society the comfort of the people is secondary to security. If a society is prepared to give up all freedoms for the appearance and possibly improved security, then security will be increased, but at what price. In a Democratic form of governance the people’s freedoms come before anything the government desires to do and the people presumably set the level they desire on freedoms and government works around those freedoms.

 

Let’s look at a simply example that any man will understand and women will be amused though they would never admit so. It is Sunday morning and there is a one day sale at the mall and her favorite department store is adding additional savings above those the mall offers on purchases. Of course the Big Game comes on at 2:30 PM in the afternoon and it is approaching 11:00 in the morning and she demands that the two of you go have brunch at the mall and do a “little” shopping. Hopes of seeing the Big Game getting dimmer and dimmer, you do what any husband knows is the less painful thing and ready for the mall as quickly as possible so maybe, just maybe you will catch the last period of the game where you will have to provide your own level of excitement that the rest of the game presumably had generated. In a democracy such a decision would be voted upon and hopefully in the entire community men would all watch the game and the women, or most women, would converge on the mall and all would be happy. The real world is never that smooth and the bumps are always unexpected and raise the ire with government as somebody has to be blamed and they are as good a target as anybody, especially when you are changing the burst tire after hitting a pothole at fifty miles an hour on your way to work. You know the boss will be less than understanding, so the government is all to blame for not repairing the road; and if they are repairing the road, then why during rush hour making you late for work. Face it, government is always wrong, period.

 

So, terrorism, where is it that life sits on this. First thing is we all know that the routine of insanity we go through at the airport with the TSA (Transportation Safety Administration) experts makes life miserable and searchs every octogenarian while ignoring any profiling which might prove effective. This is the very TSA which misses detection of 90% of items in tests run by the agency itself. This government employment boondoggle offers somewhere between none and a miniscule amount of professionalism or competence and adds nothing to the safety of flying. We all know that if each airline was responsible for their own security, then we would see automated detection systems installed around the concourses and they would work together to provide such airtight security systems which have proven well over 90% effective in detecting suspicious persons. One of the, if not the, safest airports in the world, Ben Gurion outside Tel Aviv, has some innovative security as described in this article. But then Israel had little choice but to be on the top of security and anti-terror systems, and there lies one of the greatest terror fighting tools Israel had to develop and was likely the most difficult, but establish this system they have.

 

Israel is the one place you see just as many people running towards the explosion or gunfire of a terror attack as are fleeing. The ones heading towards the attack are IDF personnel with weapons (yes, the IDF soldiers trained in use of their weapon in the public sphere carry their weapons with them 24/7 and consider themselves always on duty), police, security personnel, first responders, health care professionals, emergency care personnel, motorcycle first responders (they treat survivors and perform triage and necessary emergency life-saving treatment such as stopping bleeding and immobilizing injured areas etc.), and armed citizens licensed to carry weapons (in Israel to own a weapon you must pass a course or have proven training in public use of weapons as all owners are encouraged during heightened security times to carry their weapon and these were many of the responders who saved lives during the stabbing intifada recently faced in Israel). People you pass every day on the streets and in the halls in Israel may very well be the person who saves your life in the instance of a terror attack and this does not cover others with military and security expertise who are retired or in new professions who also are likely to run towards the attack instead of away. A trained public is the first and best line of defense but takes decades to get trained and functioning as intended.

 

But Israelis have developed systems which work with minimal input or even independently monitoring entire crowds of people looking for particular actions some of which are subconscious but found by researchers to appear on people who should be suspected and potentially watched more closely. Another system asks each individual four simple questions which are as innocuous as anyone could be asked and upon the facial expressions it picks out things which would be mostly unnoticeable to even a professional but are cues to subliminal indicators and uses these to warn of potential criminal or terrorist activity potentials. These systems have been tested in trials and have proven their effectiveness. Within a couple of years such systems will be placed in airports, malls, movie theaters, at public events, sports stadiums and across the length and breadth of many major metropolitan areas monitoring everything people do throughout the monitored areas. These systems may become so sophisticated as to be capable of using even marginally decent camera images or cities might offer purchase subsidies in exchange to hooking their systems up to the city surveillance systems expanding their web even more intrusively. But currently we need to rely on more basic human fallible systems with people watching and taking off our shoes and who knows what else just to fly off to visit the grandkids or whatever. The United States has established a frequent flier and wealthy folks go around for airport security where one goes through a precheck and is given a biometric card such that a finger print or other measure scanned and matching the card electronic record they pass right through shoes still tied and belts in place without the aggravation and indignity of the TSA rigmarole.

 

Currently most terrorist prevention must be carried out in secret and without the public being aware of their successes. We will most definitely hear about every fail as that will be the headlines for days, possibly weeks. When they fail then their following investigations are often very public which puts the government in a tough spot as the public demands to know what they have discovered and what is being done to assure such an attack never again strikes their fair city and government needs to keep much of what they learn and what they plan to do and change in their techniques known only to them if these changes and new lines of information are to remain effective. New procedures and lines of gathering information and other intelligence gathering systems must remain unknown to the terrorists in order for them to remain viable. That is why much of what we are told after a terror attack seems so lame, lame the terrorists already know or can know and it will not make their operations more efficient and capable of being undetected, everything else must remain hidden for the people to be best protected. Such secrecy is technically undemocratic and more autocratic making those involved in such security aspects of life more informed than the average person on the street. For reasons which are less than logical many people get all forms of upset when they know the government is not being fully open with them, especially on a subject as vitally important as terrorists and the dangers they pose. On another side, would the public expect that every physicist working on the latest nuclear warheads as government workers reveal everything about their work in the New York Times? Of course not, that would be foolish and dangerous. Defending against terrorism is exactly the same, it needs to be kept unknown generally if it is to serve to the advantage of the nation and make everybody that much more safe.

 

That understood, there is still much we can know which will not compromise or stop terrorism. We can know that the Islamic State is not the JV and where the average terror fighter in the Islamic State is not Kobe Bryant, their top planners and bomb makers are Kobe Bryant as far as their line of specialties are concerned. That is important for us to realize as is the fact that they want the entire non-Muslim world to either convert to Islam, pay a special tax to them for the privilege of not becoming a Muslim or dead, and by dead we mean as painfully, embarrassingly, and video-shockingly as humanly possible. Anybody who has watched their videos they chose to showcase to the world realized that they are as imaginative as they are sick and mentally disturbed. What else we need to realize is that these people are considered great minds who are making Muhammad’s and Allah’s dreams for the world be realized. Think Inquisition and you begin to realize that the Western World already survived and moved past the concept of a single world religion. Some religious groups in the West moved beyond that earlier than others, but no need to go into that.

 

The other thing one need realize is there is no such thing as religious terrorism. All terrorism is political. Your religion can drive your politics but terrorism is all about who rules over who and that is political. Catholicism, also known as The Church, was as much a political body as it was religious. Think Cardinal Richelieu against King Louis XIII and Queen Anne (of Austria) and the Three Musketeers? The Church in France had their own armies and the King had two armies, one of the Realm with which he would defend France herself and a royal guard, the Musketeers, who protected the crown mostly from British intrigues and the forces of Cardinal Richelieu. There was another French Monarch who was very well appreciated by the Church; his name eventually became Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne, King of the Franks and protector of the Church. Those were earlier times when a small kingdom could come close to conquering half the known world; think Ottoman Empire where a small tribe from northeastern Turkey conquered much of the Caliphate and held the lands of Middle East and Northern Africa slowly losing ground before being felled during World War I. One could say that the world changed breaking between before and after World War I. Before World War I where the world had empires and royalty ruled absolutely and post-World War I where the Ottoman Empire and Austrian-Hungarian Empire were split into individual countries and the rule of Kings and Queens in Europe gave way to representative governments and the Middle East and North Africa were ruled as colonies presumably to prepare for eventual representative governments which proved expensive and was untenable leading to simply deserting these nations soon after World War II and soon after dictators rose to rule in the vast majority of these countries and their arbitrary borders were much to blame and are now collapsing.

 

What will rise to replace the dictatorial monarchial governances in the Middle East and North Africa will also have much to do with the potential of terrorism growing worse or lessoning into the future. Democratic governance with a separation of Church, Synagogue, Mosque and State will result in a decrease in terrorism as each elected government will face the threat as well as the West and will thus find their bases being destroyed by the governments of the countries they use as their bases currently. On the other side there is a possibility that something of the ilk of the Islamic State could become resurgent and reinstate the Caliphate on the lands which originally constituted the Ottoman Empire and striving to reestablish the entirety of the original Caliphate which at its largest stretched from Spain and southern France ending at Tours, see Charles the Hammer Martel, all the way through then Persia stopping in northern India, see Taj Mahal. The likelihood of an empire rising across the Middle East and Northern Africa are very low as long as there is an elected and largely secular government in Egypt. I would be more concerned with a Muslim Brotherhood ruled Egypt than the Islamic State as Egypt has a very modern and powerful military as far as equipment of arms. They have modern fighter-bombers, tanks, rifles, artillery along with support, control and communications systems. Most of their current systems are from the United States with some older USSR equipment and are contracting for modern, state of the art Russian equipment. The Saudi Royal Family also stand in command of a modern military as does Iran who have the advantage that much of their equipment is manufactured in Iran. Then there is Israel, the cork in the bottle as many a military expert has referred to her. The instability in the Middle East and parts of Northern Africa is rife with terrorist entities, some intertwined fighting one another such as Islamic State, al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda), Hezballah (Iran/Syria) and numerous smaller terror entities all embroiled in the remains of Syria and into Iraq and then the tribal groups some aligned with Islamic State, some with al-Qaeda and still others Muslim Brotherhood and some just for themselves in the imbroglio formerly known as Libya, aka the mess that Hillary made.

The solution to bring much of terrorism to an end is not that simple. One of the people at the forefront of this and with the correct idea is the current, as of this writing, President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who has called for a religious reformation of Islam and demanding that a path forward must include the ability for Islam to exist amongst the other religions and under secular governance and end its supremacy complex where it demands it be the sole religion and rule over everything which can be within its domain. Islam currently has no limitations on the extent of its domain and demands at a minimum it rule over the entire earth and that every person be a Muslim, eventually the exact same sect and potentially even learning from the same Imam. Wars in Islamic history have been fought over which leader was the legitimate leader of all Islam and that remains a point of contention to this day. There is the split between Sunni and Shiite which is the largest divide plus there are the Salafists, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, al-Qaeda and who knows how many other lesser sects or teachings all of which claim to hold the only true and pure form of Islam. As we have said here is the remarkable similarity to Highlander as in the end, there can be only one. Some of this is a direct result of the creed of an old Arab Bedouin saying: “I, against my brothers, I and my brothers against my cousins, I and my brothers and my cousins against the world (the stranger).” This mentality refuses anything or anyone different and is incapable of incorporating anything new or different into their lives or their ethics and politics. This is what has led to centuries of warfare as it was once the belief of humankind the world over. The initial expression of treating the stranger as a welcome guest was formalized in the Old Testament as was exemplified by Abraham and the way he would greet strangers by doing everything to be a gracious host. But such has not become the accepted norm around the globe with many cases as far from the norm as possible. Some areas on the globe have even moved further from such an open and accepting model. Much of the world still sees the other as a threat and as something or someone to be conquered or worse, destroyed completely. Until the world reaches a community of inclusiveness, terrorism will exist as a method to intimidate and destroy the other, the more technologically and often sociologically advanced and accepting ethos from what classically would be called the barbarians at the gates, or within the gates, depending on the realities. Many in the West are not seeing the barbarians at their gates and are opening their gates wide to allow them in in the mistaken belief that their great loving and accepting nature will win them over. History teaches us otherwise. We once before lost the technologically most advanced culture to the barbarians even if Rome had devolved spiritually and socially. The question is will we repeat that history again. The last time it brought on a darker age for much of the globe and allowed another culture to spread across much of the known world stopped only at some of the least expected of areas. Will we watch the world take a huge step backwards? More than likely as there is an entire liberal elite who thinking they know all better than anybody else are rushing headlong to disaster just to prove they were right, what if they are wrong?

Moral Relativism vs Israeli Clarification

 

Moral relativism dies a death of a clarifying reality where there truly are absolutes which obliterate the fuzzy thinking which equates all views into some squishy warm fuzzy amalgam which is presumably harmless. In Israel one lives the inequalities between different cultures and political battles over the land and the different peoples, religious beliefs, virtues and the way all of these interact producing a state where reality becomes one’s teacher. This reality comes home every time on waits for a bus or is in any decent sized crowd as your eyes will peer outward scanning the immediate area for vehicles speeding towards the group. Even when one is walking alone there is the need for situational awareness where one knows all that is occurring within an area of relative proximity looking for someone acting at all different, possibly hands in their pockets appearing to be hiding what they are holding, that certain look in one’s eyes reflecting the deadness which accompanies the stark hatred required to murder a complete stranger close up and personal using a screwdriver, kitchen knife, hatchet or other such implement who you may need to watch more closely than usually you might. You listen closely while walking, especially at night, and you get a premonition as you hear somebody walking at a forced pace coming behind you that you spin to face a potential attack and are relieved to see a religious Jew rushing to services or possibly some class. Maybe you are unsure of the identity and purpose of the person walking up behind you so you increase your pace aiming for a place with more people or police or a checkpoint or IDF station just to feel safe again, but even there is one truly safe?

 

There is this little truth about moral relativism and all too many other of the leftist garbage the media give us in deluges daily admonishing us for our lack of enlightenment if we do not have similar views as expounded in the New York Times and other such paragons of virtue. A reputed example of moral relativism and an acute case of would you just stop making my life difficult was the reputed statement by playwright Tony Kushner who presumably stated that it would have been better if there were no Israel. His reasoning was simply that American Jews don’t want to rock the boat, American Jews don’t want trouble. To all too many American Jews Israel has become that burdensome stone around their necks called Yerushalayim which has become exactly what was described in Zechariah Chapter 12 which was written approximately two-thousand-five-hundred years ago states, and let us quote:

 

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.”
“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

 

The lengths and stretches made by NGOs in Israel purporting to be Israeli Human Rights enforcers working to improve Israel carry out that task in the most unusual manner. Instead of taking their case before the Israeli courts or working behind the scenes with their information to assist Israel to work to better insure equal rights and fair treatment they immediately take any dirt, manufactured or real, and make a major case over the most trivial of offense often where any offensive act they have gleaned, often formed out of thin air, and throw their accusation before a complicit world media just salivating over every minute morsel of gristle thrown them like feral dogs around a bone and parade their accusations around the world all in the name of justice and also doing a little fund raising.

These NGOs are more often than not primarily financed exclusively by some European government, the European Union, European and United Nations NGOs or a combination of these sources or with some major portion of funding from the New Israel Fund (NIF) which despite its high sounding name is a lowlife funnel for European and untraceable foreign funds such as from wealthy individuals, such as George Soros who has been proven to be one of the NIF’s major sources of ready funding, all actuated with the actual task of the destruction of Israel by destroying the Israeli Zionist, Nationalist and Religious camps and gaining control for the most extreme leftists who champion complete surrender to every Arab demand in the name of peace and human rights. Trust when we point out that should these European cabals and their puppet NGOs succeed there will be absolutely no NGOs or human rights inquiries seeking to discern what happened to the Israeli Jews and Christians once Israel has been fed to the Arabs as these paragons of virtue will be shocked when they are left to the tender mercies of the Arabs right alongside of the rest of the Israelis facing the same exact fate as none of their current financiers or close knit friends will lift a finger to save them from the same fate they intend to press upon the other Israelis, those which disagree with their desires to destroy Israel in the name of human rights and peace.

 

If the world instead of concentrating all their evil thoughts, dastardly machinations, colluding conclaves and demonic covens on Israel and would instead look inwards and repair their own houses instead of attempting to find some future which the Jewish State of Israel will have once again passed from the pages of history maybe our world could be a far finer place for us all. Europe has its own problems with the recent flood of immigrants, their death spiral due to lack of sufficient children being born thus being forced to rely on immigration has led to a mix of cultures which had begun to rip the societal fabric at the seams and virtually shredding the entire societal cloth. There is the challenge of what to do to salvage the Euro and its issuing agent, the European Union, from the economic divergence between Germany, the former Warsaw nations and the southern Mediterranean nations such as Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and potentially France in the near future. These nations are so economically desolate that they cannot even grab their fair share of the flood of immigrants from Northern Africa, Syria, Afghanistan and other Arab and Muslim nations with some reaching the gates of Europe from Pakistan which all are heading for Germany or the Scandinavian nations and better benefits. Europe and the United States also have the slow job growth such that large parts of the population have left the work force giving up on any future employment paths. The current rift between the old developed and industrial world having entered the information age one would think they might have noticed the building anger the developing nations are feeling. The truth of their situation of not having any hope of catching the developed world and always going to play a subordinate role mastering technology decades after the Western Nations who share very little of their most advanced systems. Then there is the Arab and Muslim world believing their time has come to spread their religion throughout Europe setting up a stealth insertion of terror forces, both Iran with an assist from Hezballah and the Islamic State with the Saudi Petro-dollars assisting with funding of Sunni Mosques and schools throughout the Western World spreading their Wahhabism form of Islam.

Such forces all allied to eradicate the real and guaranteed borders for the nation of Israel because it might upset the Arab world and make energy prices ramp-up is a true and present danger which is fueled by moral relativism Western World style. The problem is the world keeps making the claim of taking the Arab Palestinians to the International Criminal Court or the International Court of Justice but will never actually make such a move as they are aware of the real and defined borders of Israel and that does not favor their claims. The land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea made up Israel after the San Remo Conference and was accepted at the Treaty of Sèvres and still holds to this day under the United Nations Charter Article 80 which places the British Mandate amongst the other Mandates now under United Nations responsibility to carry them to fruition. This was accomplished with the attempt to undercut the guarantee that the lands east of the Jordan River, the 78%, were reserved for what eventually became Jordan and was the home for Arab Palestinians and was formed under conditions which made it free of any Jewish presence while the lands west of the Jordan River were reserved for the Jewish Palestinians on the remaining 22% of the lands and were to be open for any and all peoples desiring to reside there under Jewish rule of the nation though their villages, towns and even cities could claim any governance they desired just as long as all citizens were free to pursue their own religion with full rights in the State of Israel as understood in any national laws were concerned. The attempt by the United Nations to further divide these lands was prevented by the Arab desire to own and control all of the lands and to cleanse all of the lands from any, as they put it, Jewish infestation. The Arabs planned to crush the nascent Jewish State the very day it would no longer be guarded by British troops on the very morning of her first day, May 15, 1948 and lined the border of Israel, and this is important, with the armies of seven nations ready and armed up to destroy the Jewish State which had fewer than one hundred tanks and aircraft combined at the onset of the war. With arms embargos in place by the United States and Europe there was nowhere really for the State of Israel to turn except for the one nation willing to sell her arms outright, and that was Czechoslovakia, a nation who knew and fully understood being sold out as inconsequential by the powers that be as they were by Britain and France at the lead-in of World War II. There were individuals who managed to send arms to Israel through means of smuggling them out of their nations often with a wink and a nod which could have gone the other way and they incarcerated for attempting to break their national policy of remaining neutral and in some cases neutral meant only arming the Arab side. The very first, and some say the greatest, miracle was that Israel defended herself from these invading armies and slowly built a credible military force with a patchwork of units forming the initial Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and prevent the nation’s destruction.

It was as the Israelis were Jewish according to the world media, ignoring others such as the precious Arab allies as some Arab villages fought with the Israelis, yet even knowing of this, the world translated Israeli as all Jewish which was not true, together, kept most of the lands from the initial declaration lands as Israel. The world insisted on ceasefires every time the Israeli forces were poised to make progress to defeating the combined Arab armies against her and thus protecting the Arab gains made initially before the Israeli forces could congeal into a reasonable fighting force made up of the different forces with which they had resisted the British attempts to completely disarm the Jews before departing. Had that been accomplished the miracle required would only have been greater in scope, but the fact that Israel survived at all was definitively a miracle. Still, Israel almost lost all of Jerusalem and a do or die attempt was launched in the final hours of the conflict to connect with the Jewish fighters surrounded in Jerusalem and allow for a contiguous State including Jerusalem and succeeded, the final miracle in almost two years of miracles. The lands occupied by Syria, Jordan and Egypt were the Golan Heights without which much of Israeli farmlands would be unworkable due to snipers, Judea and Samaria and Benjamin along with east Jerusalem which included the Temple Mount and the Old City all renamed West Bank by Jordan and the Gaza Strip by Egypt. All of these lands were occupied Israeli lands and were a part of Israel at the onset of hostilities when the morning sun revealed her hills and plains, a land where children can run free. But now these large chunks of what were Israel were occupied by foreign entities and made free of their Jews who owned lands within these areas of occupation. So, the reality is the West Bank is occupied lands; occupied by the Jordanian citizens who were unceremoniously stripped of their Jordanian citizenship granted them when Jordan attempted to make permanent their occupation by annexing the West Bank thus attempting to make permanent their theft of Israeli lands. Where this annexation was only recognized by the British and Pakistanis, today the lands are treated as if they belonged to other than Israelis Arabs who were never Jordanian, despite almost all holding Jordanian citizenship identifications, and the lands were now magically to have belonged to Palestinians Arabs who were the indigenous population going back thousands of years replacing the Jewish claims as these Palestinians who are not Arabs but indigenous have a history dating back to before the Jews claim to have come and there were either never Jews in the lands or Jews came and conquered the lands carrying out ethnic cleansing back three thousand years ago just as they are doing now. The ancient and modern Jews must be extremely incompetent when it comes to ethnic cleansing as there seem to be a constantly growing Arab Palestinian population despite reputed Israeli genocidal efforts. The only ethnic cleansing done in the area the world likes to call the West Bank was performed by the Jordanians in 1948-9 when they forced the Jews from their lands by either expelling them into Israel if they were fortunate, or by simply erasing any record of their existence through honest ethnic cleansing and genocidal tactics.

But Moral Relativists must take the side of the downtrodden over any vestige of Western society, which is what Israel has been labeled as despite the fact that more than half of the population came from Asia, Africa or Arab and Muslim lands across all of the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East and northern Africa. The only Western fact about Israel is that she has honestly achieved becoming a wealthy and free society where all of her citizens are privileged to share the same advantages and rights within the State of Israel. The “Palestinians” who are denied the right to vote, the right to free speech, the basic right to a fair trial, the right to free assembly and are persecuted and denied the rights recognized to have been granted Israelis are not denied these rights by Israel as these are not, by the definition of the world at large, Israeli citizens but are ruled under the auspices of the semi-autonomous Palestinian Authority (PA) under the definitions of the Oslo Accords. It was the Oslo Accords which first gave any legal standing for a Palestinian state to possibly be founded within what is rightfully Israeli lands liberated from Jordanian occupation in the June 1967 Six Day War. With Mahmoud Abbas claiming that the PA is no longer bound by the Oslo Accords is declaring that the PA has been dissolved, which he claims constantly while assuring the Europeans and Americans that the PA still exists as otherwise he might lose the billions of Dollars and Euros they lavish on him and his most favored of Arabs in the hierarchical dictatorship he has formed, claiming what remains of the Fatah Party and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).

Fatah might exist but not as any ruling entity as Fatah was the new PLO cleansed of it terrorist roots and history and without the Oslo Accords there can be no Fatah. There can be only the PLO terrorist entity, which is exactly what we now witness occupying Judea, Samaria and Benyamin areas formerly occupied by Jordan. These lands have been subsumed by Western charitable entities as Palestine which they make the legitimate owners erasing Jordanian occupation. The Mandate defined Jewish lands but Europe has semiofficially recognized Palestine making Israel the occupying power in its own lands by International Law. But the European leftists have defined Palestine as being defined by whatever Mahmoud Abbas claims, which is all of Israel from the River to the Sea. Even Abbas recognizes that Israel is defined as existing in all of the lands and he claims he will conquer the lands with the assistance of world recognition.

Israel must be destroyed and the lands given to the Arab Palestinians because all of Western society must be sacrificed if the world is ever going to be truly liberated, well, except for the enclaves, gated pieces of the vestiges of Western civilizational comfort reserved for the Moral Relativists as the rules they impose on others cannot be applied to them. They will have a real wake-up call once they have disbanded the nations of the western infestation and dissolved much of the western armies and they will be in their villas expecting to rule by fiat over the remaining billions of people they liberated and gave the keys of power to in exchange for promises they will be granted their comfortable villas in their established oasis of Western comforts. Their villas will soon be destroyed and them along with them as their ideal world cannot exist as once the Moral Relativists get their promise of the ideal lands with the barbarians now allowed inside the walls because the walls have come tumbling down by their equating all societies as equal and granted all societies equal access to all areas including within the gates and they expect this will work for them. Perhaps they should read, not reread as I doubt many if any of the Moral Relativists ever read the Old Testament and especially the Torah and the following book of Joshua as that would tell them what happens to a walled city such as Jericho when the walls come tumbling down, and a hint, it does not go well for the people who formerly lived behind those walls. But the Moral Relativists tell us they will get it right and their allowing the barbarians to come inside the walls will work this time. They know what went wrong when Rome paid barbarians, the good barbarians to guard the borderlands of the Roman Empire. They understand where China went wrong allowing Barbarians to man the gates along the wall, and we mean The Wall as in Great Wall of China, the most impressive and effective wall ever built until the barbarians were hired to guard the gates.

But the Moral Relativists have solved the problem which Rome, China and Jericho all got wrong about walls and gates. They claim by granting the good barbarians the same, equal, possibly superior rights they will adopt civilized ways and act exactly the same as the Westerners act because they will have equal rights. Never mind the barbaric history and the trillions of little steps and the accomplishments along the way which formed western society and thoughts. Little steps such as the Protestant reformations, the Magna Carta limiting the power of a King and giving rights to the other aristocracy, the political theses which culminated in the American Declaration of Independence and the ensuing Civil War because even the American revolution got some things horrifically wrong such as allowing slavery to continue and refusing women equality and the right to vote. But the Moral Relativists tell us just granting the barbarians who know not any of this and many simply blame the Western World for their misery and are just waiting for that opportunity to take their revenge and take all that belongs to them that those Westerners stole, those Moral Relativists included.

 

All things considered, the western World may decide the Moral Relativists are correct and all societies are created different but who can say what is a better way. We will stick with Torah as the basis for all of western thought and retain our technical savvy world and the advantages of our civil society and the rights and responsibilities that go with this societal model we believe is superior due to the path trodden by the many great minds who gave us these ideals and we will stand on their shoulders and allow the rest of the world to make their own peace. We advise your peace be with Hashem, the One you decided you were too advanced to need anymore, we will continue to worship Hashem and all He gave us through generations of hard work and toil and sacrifice to mold and build and when the rest of the world has taken the learning curve, the path least taken and most difficult, then we will open our gates. We will share advances and other items like ways to increase crop yield and medical and health advances and whatever we can without surrendering our survival. We will heed the past and Torah and will keep to those traits that made and built Western technological greatness while also keeping to the truth in which it is all rooted, Torah, the first place where the duties and restrictions on a King are spelled out in Deuteronomy 16:18 – 21:9. That and the rest of the wisdom of the Torah and Old Testament, the Jewish Bible, and we will keep our heritage and judge it to be superior for as long as we walk with Hashem. That does not mean we believe we are superior, just that we believe Torah is superior and we are the inferiors who will sustain efforts to improve and become more holy.

About the sacrifice of animals on an alter, that was the manner of taxation to support the priestly class who had no assigned lands of their own and thus needed to be supported. They also fed the poor and took care of the responsibilities of tending the teachings of Hashem and giving that knowledge to the masses so all were elevated by the teachings of Torah and the greatness of Hashem. And how do we know that Torah and Hashem are the magic combination and the ways of truth? We know that this is so because it is what sustained us through two-thousand-years without a nation of our own and we Jews continue to exist and have returned just as the Torah and Bible said we would and in the same manner as they claimed, the nation of the Jewish People will come back into existence in a single day. Not by war as the war took from us some of those lands, but by the agreement that the world declared the righteousness and legality of our claim and the necessity to honor Hashem even if they knew not they were doing exactly that. So keep your moral Relativism and may it serve you well, though we have our doubts, and we will keep Torah and worship of Hashem and never place men over men without laws to restrict their powers and wealth because otherwise you will serve a class of nonproducers who will claim superiority of the bureaucracy they have formed over you. We will see which is right and which fails its people assured that Hashem still cares for the world and we are those who are sworn to His service and we will respect that debt as Hashem has kept us and for that we are grateful.

Ruins and Remains of Peace Process After General Assembly

 

The speeches given at the General Assembly are said, recorded and hashed out in the press with Abbas having the biggest implications while Netanyahu used some serious drama unveiling the reality and truth behind the Obama surrender to Iran on their nuclear drive to weapons status. The Iranian aim is not just atomic bombs but thermonuclear hydrogen bombs with all the sophistication of Russia, China or the United States. Netanyahu then followed his brilliance with a complete and worthless ending addressing the moribund peace process which had already been nullified by Abbas in his speech. Abbas basically felt secure enough with the backing of the United Nations, European Union and the United States, European Union plus numerous other nations, NGOs, and political commentators backing his claims to at the very least being gifted all of the lands beyond the Green Line including all of the Temple Mount, the Old City of Jerusalem and even possibly all of Jerusalem should he demand such from an angry world fed up with the entire process and willing to demand every concession and then some from Israel knowing that the Arabs are immovable in their claims and refuse to reason or compromise on any items and only to demand more. So, after these diatribes and commentaries by two diametrically opposed views, what will be the outcome as well as what should be the outcome as the two are not necessarily the same.

Let us look at Mahmoud Abbas and his supposedly bombshell announcement that the Palestinian Authority and Fatah and any other entity he was the leader of would no longer recognize the Oslo Accords. Abbas tied to this a demand that the United Nations and all of its member states immediately recognize Palestine and to even leave the boundaries as a fluid, ephemeral and inconclusive, undefined, inexact, set line open to further clarifications in the future but at a minimum set along the Green Line and all of Eastern Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and the Kotel (Western Wall and its plaza) over which they would be permitted to forcefully evict every last Jew or genocidally slaughter them in the process of purifying the Islamic lands as commanded by Allah. Mahmoud Abbas has taken a chance by separating himself and the proposed forces waging a terror war with genocidal expectations from their agreement to recognize a change from the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) into the respectable Palestinian Authority and the PLO transformed into a political entity known as the Fatah Party. By casting off the Oslo Accords there now does not exist such an entity as the Palestinian Authority, the Fatah Party is now remerged with the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and the PLO terrorist force. Abbas is betting everything right down to the kitchen sink that the world will no longer require the so-called Arab Palestinian entities under any name to hold viable claims against Israel for the Jewish State to provide them with their own lands and all other needs such as water, electricity and natural gas as well as anything else which proves to be necessary as there will be only Palestine and the Jewish State of Israel will have been subsumed.

 

Needless to point out that the current deficit amount by the Palestinian Authority and all parties to that body already owe in excess of $15.2 million in unpaid electric bills over at least 10 years, part of an all-consuming Palestinian power debt of $430 million that is at the core of the last official breakdown which was resolved by increasing the rates paid by Israeli companies and though not excusing the Arab debt, ameliorating the slow bleeding financially of the Israeli electric companies. There exist similar debts for water and numerous other commodities as well as taxes. Unfortunately the world has always demanded that Israel simply suck it up and absorb this debt repeatedly ever since the existence of Arabs claiming rightful ownership of lands in the heartland of ancient Israel despite most of the land owners being recipients of grants from the Jordanian government when they illegally occupied the land west of the Jordan River. This situation initially came about during the Arab War to Annihilate the nascent State of Israel between 1948 and the Six Day War in June of 1967. The Jordanian capture and annexations, recognized solely by Pakistan and Britain, occupied most all of Judea and much of Samaria as well as a piece of Benjamin and all of the Old City in Eastern Jerusalem. This occupation by Jordan, as a result of the 1948-9 War of Annihilation which placed a half dozen armies and more at the Israeli borders in all directions, piled into Israel on its first day of existence swearing to annihilate ever last single Jews and do so within a few days, a week at most. After two years of war and the loss of around one to two percent of their entire population, the Jews were finally granted a peace, or at least an arbitration which still left the State of Israel technically at war with a number of her neighbors, especially after the Arabs decided to implement the Khartoum Resolutions after a meeting in Khartoum by the Arab League. This meeting led to the infamous “three no’s” which were 1) no peace with Israel, 2) no recognition of Israel and 3) no negotiations with Israel. Netanyahu used the podium well including a prolonged forty-five seconds of complete and total silence and a stern look, which some claim can boil or freeze water pending Netanyahu’s intentions, to represent the lack of rejection of the path Iran has had cleared for them to attain nuclear standing after ten to fifteen years and potentially destroy far more than Israel and the United States as they are far more likely to take upon themselves the destruction of the Saudi Arabian oil fields and whatever other actions they may find to serve their interests before taking on the United States or Israel.

 

In the interim, Israel needs to defend herself and the Jewish People from slanderous anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism and anti-Zionism, what we think should be made into the three anti’s which every school child needs to be educated where that path leads once a people begin to tolerate even the slightest intolerance. Former Rabbi to the United Kingdom Rabbi Sachs wrote an article titled The hate that starts with Jews never ends there where he discussed the spread of anti-Semitism despite a society which prides themselves on their tolerance, the Europeans. In another more recent article by Giulio Meotti titled Anti-Semitism devours Europe he described a number of anti-Semitic acts originating, amongst other places, in Denmark from which I would like to quote one of his finds as he reports,

“Something is rotten in the state of Norway, as Marcello of Shakespeare’s Hamlet would have put it.
A few days ago an image was imprinted as a background on a credit card issued by Dnb Bank, the largest financial institution in the country. You see a Jew with a hooked nose, a yarmulke on his head, a prayer shawl and a cascade of gold coins.”

He concluded this article noting that the spread of anti-Semitism in Europe was akin to “comparing it to the dog rage syndrome or mad cow disease.”
Both of these articles speak of a vile hatred which overtook Germany leading into World War II and has been at the center of so numerous numbers of examples it is beyond accuracy to define any actual cause for the origin of such hatred. The hate of the Jews traced back even beyond those tales often used when making every knight “bloodied” before entering into battle in the Holy Lands by slaughtering the Jews in a stretch of villages which often was referred to as a pogrom against the Jews and such upticks in anti-Semitism almost invariably became a part of Jewish history, a long and tortuous history. The Bible, in the Old Testament, spoke of the origins of the hatreds to any morality, something the Jews had always been at the forefront fighting to defend righteousness and refute all the other false claims of idolatry and multi-deistic religions. Many charismatic leaders using deceit mixed with charms expounded deviant behavior but if one could only reveal the dark underbelly and shine the light of truth on such cults and reveal the hatreds which lay under the same rocks festering and idolatry and often human sacrifice, particularly child sacrifice, the humanity of Hashem and the truths demanded moral and ethical behavior such as equality and nobility of the individual, things not tolerated in the hedonistic practices of the false religious cults. The origins of anti-Semitism began as a defense against the abolition of idolatry, multi-deistic faiths and the large clerical corps of priesthoods devoted to their own enrichment feeling the challenge which Judaism and faith in Hashem placed their hierarchal structured societies and lives of privilege. The reasoning has changed but the core of moral behavior and a supreme creator with all men created equal in worth, potential and love from Hashem are still seen to be threatening to many modern cultural hierarchies and power structures.

Europe will have chosen where they shall stand with the coming invasion of their culture, already almost devoid of faith their traditional faith, replacing it with the doctrine of the human as the supreme being, about to be overrun by Islamic refugees whose faith is rising and will swell further in the furtive but spiritually barren slate before them in Europe. Behind these refugees in a generation or possibly immediately come the demands of Islam imposed through Sharia. The anti-Semitism coupled as it already is with anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism will only grow overrunning any opposition. European Jews will be fortunate to be free from Europe as the change will occur almost overnight. In the United States, and potentially Canada afterwards, this transition will take a while longer because of distance and a great deal of angry waters preventing any hordes of refugee entering its borders, but the change will come. The sole hope for Judeo-Christian ethics will be dependent on a reformation of Islam, a remote possibility at best. Israel will thus be the last and only stand for the Old testament and the remnants who follow the New Testament, the Christians will be residing possibly in South America and Southern Africa and potentially carving a nation out of the southern central states along the Mississippi River, Missouri River, Ohio River and between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains but excluded from the great lakes region. That will be the remnant and with any good fortune and the help of Hashem these areas may remain free with a world otherwise ruled by Islam. Some Christians have already slowly gravitated to support of Israel and the Jews and these Christians will be the leaders of the remnants of Christianity which by necessity will ally with Israel. Those who refuse will likely be lost in a sea of green and black. That will be the fate of those opposing Israel and their worship of Hashem and the keepers of the original Covenant and the Commandments. It is not promising, but if one knows the situation they face and makes plans accordingly, they may find their salvation; the rest will either surrender their will to Islam or die believing that mankind is the true master of their fate and will reap exactly that fate.
