Presidents Barack Hussein Obama and François Hollande Next Cooperative

 

Presidents Barack Hussein Obama with the full and forceful support of Secretary of State Kerry and the full support of the plethora of advisors including but likely not limited to Anne Patterson, Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Near East Affairs, Frank Lowenstein, Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations, Chris Henzel, Director of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Andrew Lederman, Political Officer of Israel-Palestinian Affairs, Rob Malley, Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and White House Coordinator for MENA (Middle East and North Africa), and Steven Galpern, National Security Council Director of Israeli-Palestinian Affairs will silently move to support the French initiative originally crafted by former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius whose full support of all things Palestinian is well known. The Obama Administration will probably press France’s new Foreign Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, who has backtracked some from the original threat in the name of a peace process. President Obama gave his hand away when he first lowered expectations with the President, Vice President and Secretary of State all claiming that they had accepted that there would be no two state solution to the Arab (Palestinian)-Israeli peace process. The one thing which should trouble any sane person is that the Obama Administration, as listed above, has at the least a half dozen advisors, managers, and whatever one might conceptualize all basically hovering over Israel; and all with these positions dwell on how much Israel must sacrifice for a peace with a guarantee of terror attacks. What none of these “experts” refuse to admit to the public is that the Arab World refuses to accept the existence of Israel and no matter what may be agreed with, there will be no end to the violence as long as there exists a Jewish State or any Jews residing in any of the lands currently included. This includes anywhere in Jerusalem, anywhere in Tel Aviv, Eilat, Haifa, Akko or anywhere even inside the Green Line, period. This does not bother anybody as long as there may be a Nobel Prize for any deal forced upon Israel.

 

Towards these potential eventualities, Secretary of State Kerry met with the French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and numerous other European diplomats to work towards a stringent and forceful proposal which meets the critical positions of Israel forced back within the 1949 Armistice Lines, the Green Line, forcing close to a million Jews homeless and a large percentage jobless and all of the Temple Mount and Western Wall under Arab Palestinian control which would be, exactly as things were under Jordan, completely out of the reach of Jews and Jacob’s Tomb once again utterly destroyed along with a number of rebuilt Synagogues completely defiled and destroyed with Arab Palestinians dancing in celebrations. Pictures of the last episode which destroyed Jacob’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) are included below. The pictures of this holy site of paramount history and importance as Joseph (Yosef) demanded that his bones be taken from Egypt when the Exodus came and have them reinterred within Eretz Yisroel and that request was honored centuries later when the prophesized Exodus, like the current ingathering, were all prophesized. The Arabs have already declared numerous Jewish and Christian holy sites which predate Islam to be awarded the Arabs (Palestinians) despite their unmistakable history. Included amongst these holy sites are Rachel’s Tomb (renamed as an Arab Sultan’s tomb), the Church of the Holy Sepulture, the Church of the Nativity, the Cave of the Patriarchs and others and they are attempting to have UNESCO award both the Western Wall and Temple Mount as exclusively Islamic holy sites. All of these actions are to either make all holy sites Islamic or destroyed with no middle Ground as the Palestinians refuse to allow any holy sites other than Muslim designated sites. Such has been Islamic actions as with the giant standing Buddhas representing Vairocana and Sakyamuni which the Taliban destroyed in the Bamyan Valley.

Meanwhile, President Obama has little if any care for these sites, the Jews residing in what have become major cities and business hubs employing thousands of Arab Palestinians who live in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), a little fact which is never discussed. Little known that Ahava Dead Sea Products Cosmetics and Soda Stream both relocated within the Green Line as a response to the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) Movement to avoid conflicts and over a thousand Palestinian Arabs had to be let go due to security situations which would have required excessive government intervention both within Israel as well as from the semi-autonomous Palestinian Authority which refused to be forthcoming as they were more interested in the public relations of pressing the claim that Israel refused to allow Palestinians to retain their jobs. These Palestinians lost their jobs because the BDS Movement pressed these companies into relocating; the same BDS Movement started and financed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is simply an arm of the Palestinian Authority (PA) as their project to attempt to force Israelis from their homes and force the Jobs run and owned by Israelis out of the areas they claim they desire initially as their initial step after Gaza in their war to destroy Israel.

 

None of these realities matter to President Obama as his desire is to force a peace on Israel by any means required just as he will close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp as these were amongst the top promises made during the initial campaign where President Obama was initially elected. The reality of what forcing a peace on Israel will accomplish, which is absolutely nothing, when Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas within a day of a terror attack which murdered an American citizen and though Abbas made a limp apology and refused to denounce the attack and after their meeting Abbas and numerous PA and PLO officials applauded and gave serious acclaim to the terrorists. This has been the modus-operandi of the PA and PLO as well as Hamas with the naming of sports centers, camps, schools and streets amongst other structures after terrorists with the larger naming go to those terrorists who have murdered the most Israelis. This past week there was the charm offensive with the PLO charm agent and senior member of the PLO Executive Committee, Hanan Ashrawi, who met with numerous senior advisors and Middle East experts in President Obama’s Administration seeking promises for added United Nations pressures to end the “occupation” and for the United States to refuse any Israeli request that the United States not use their Veto as the French resolution is placed before the Security Council. Ms. Ashrawi also pressed for the original French proposal which set a deadline for negotiations to work establishing a new Arab State for the self-proclaimed Palestinians with the 1949 Armistice and pre Six Day War Green Line borders should Israel not reach an agreement which the PA accepts. Many wonder what reason the PA would have to accept any deal with their maximalist demands being the default to be applied if they remain, as they have in all previous talks, stanchly refusing every offer knowing that they get the entire ball of wax with half of Jerusalem as their capital city. Should they get United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven and not need to settle for either a Chapter Six or a General Assembly Resolution (which they have numerous of these unenforceable General Assembly Resolutions from over the years) which are unenforceable, they would have the whole world to back them with enforcement this time. They have worked for years to internationalize the conflict in order to use international military forces to enforce whatever monstrosity comes from the United Nations.

The one thing which appears to have escaped everybody is how will the militaries of the supporting nations deal with terrorists attacks when the multinational forces and the initial Americans, Frenchmen, British and whomever else has their nations’ troops vulnerable to attacks from the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State, al Qaeda and who knows who else places their troops in such a vulnerable position. The United States need only look back at the events after the United States and allies had vanquished the Iraqi military and were simply assisting with security while a new governance had risen from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix. There was a rub that not all of the citizens and others in theater were on the same page as the allied forces. That resulted in the ever increasing lethality of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Device) and ambushes cost the United States and its allies thousands of lives making the entire intervention go from Hero to Zero overnight. Deploying American troops in such a scenario would simply be too costly and gain population rejection almost from the start and all the more so definitely should GIs start being ambushed while deployed against Israel. The real disaster would be anti-Semitism which would build up as Israel would ultimately be blamed for any deaths should the deployment of troops prove necessitated as the media would claim that it was Israeli resistance to what was declared universally as a fair and just resolution to a seriously impossible and intractable problem. The reality would be the demands for allied troops to protect the Arab Palestinians from Israeli interventions and punishments meted out by Israel Defense Forces in response to terrorist attacks with return counter-fire and potentially incursions made to prevent known terror threats which would be explained as legitimate operations as the original occupation from 1948 had still not been resolved and the remainder of the Jews occupying Islamic land had to be resolved exactly as the 1967 occupations. What many are not aware, the Arab Muslims claim that any lands which were ever trod by a Muslim must forever remain as Islamic lands. This is behind their claims to Andalusia which to you and me is better known as Spain, Portugal and southern France all the way to Tours where the Islamic invaders were finally vanquished. Of course there are also the Islamic claims that the United States and Italy, or more accurately, Vatican City and Rome must be liberated from the infidel and purified with fire. Many of these claims are borderline to actually delusional but that has never stood in the way of Islamic claims to lands across the globe as their desire and intent is to continue to slaughter the disbelievers until the entire world is Muslim, their particular kind of Muslim, Sunni or Shia or some other groups or Arab or Hashemite or Saudi or Alawite or virtually any existing group of Muslim believers as each believe they are the true and sole possessors of the divine message as the Quran dictates and is interpreted.

 

All of this relates back to what some claim was an Arab verse and other credit the Bedouins which related an order of allegiances which goes something like the below quote.

انا على أخوي وأنا وأخوي على ابن عمي وأنا وابن عمي على الغريب

Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against the world.

A longer version we once had referenced went through the entirety of the hierarchal structure starts the same and continues as follows, “Me against my brothers, me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my brother and my cousins against our family, my family against the tribe, our tribe against the nation, our nation against the world.” Following such a structure the fighting continues until one attains the base allegiance, namely unto oneself. This reasoning is reminiscent of the Highlander series where a universal group of immortals must battle each other out beheading every opponent until, as the theme claimed, until there is only one. It does not take much to realize the complete insanity of such a structure for basing a society. Islam takes this as there can be only one state with one religion the world over and there can be no deviation from the instructions in the Quran which demands that Islam become universal, and the struggles witnessed between the Shia and Sunni one immediately sees where this could lead as each group claims the other to be an apostate and thus to be eradicated or forced to convert to the other form of Islam. One can only wonder how selective could things get with Syria as a prime example as the many Sunni groups fight against the Alawites of Bashir al-Assad while also fighting one another for dominance with the many factions each holding their own territories and fighting the others making temporary truces in order to strike another only to be fighting one another the next week and in the end there may simply be nothing left to inherit as everything has been destroyed, and Syria is rapidly reaching that point with Iraq not far behind.

 

But the Obama administration has as their goal to assist with the destruction of Israel replacing the Jewish State with a war between Hamas and the PA/PLO whichever one wins then facing Hezballah or Islamic State or both as again each believes they are the sole true form of Islam and there must be one pure form having purged the world of the other, every last other. Israel this year, Europe within the decade and then where? The United States, Russia, Canada, who can tell? The one truth we must learn before it is too late, whichever Islamic group eventually proves to be the victor, they will enforce a world where the Quran and Hadiths as they interpret them are the only knowledge one will be permitted and surrender to Allah and whoever claims to be his most strident supporter giving over one’s will to live, other than that, the rest is easy. What will be the result if American men, women and service members, many simply young men and women barely old enough to vote are slaughtered in the name of Islam while they are presumably guarding those who want to murder them from the Israelis who only wish to live without having to constantly look over one’s shoulder for the next crazy with a Kitchen knife or pair of scissors trying to stab them simply because they are different, and that includes anyone not recognized by the person stabbing even if they are Arab or Muslim or both Arab and Muslim and just unknown to the youth with a death wish stabbing their way into paradise just as the Imam and PA/PLO instigators incited them.

Beware of Bidens Bearing No Peace Plan

 

United States Vice President Joe Biden is kicked off a Middle East tour Monday in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) but we all know where the trip will end and what the build-up will do for expectations for pressure to be placed on the Israelis in order to beg and grovel to get Mahmoud Abbas just to have him insult us and make broad claims of Israeli intransigence and refusal to make the needed sacrifice for peace. The reality is, and everyone in governments of Europe, the United States, United Nations and every corner of the globe is that Mahmoud Abbas cannot afford to make peace as doing so would lose him the one thing which keeps him alive and in power, the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) working intelligence and preventing any challenge or takeover by Hamas, Islamic State or any other terror group which would unseat and behead the leadership of the PA (Palestinian Authority) within days, weeks at the longest, of the Israelis pulling from Judea and Samaria (a.k.a. West Bank). Further, if Mahmoud Abbas did reach an accord and established his presumed dream of an Arab state named Palestine, or any other name, then he would have to actually provide real services to a much larger area as Israel provides most of the services in Area B and all the services in Area C which combine to make around three-quarters of the contested areas. Combine these additional government responsibilities and services with the fact that the amounts of aid received by the PA would soon dry-up as there would no longer be any conflict with Israel after such an agreement and without the conflict with the Jewish State the Europeans and United Nations would move on to some other pressing problem like forcing Israel to accept ten million Syrian refugees which Europe was refusing to accept. Without the funds the PA, now a real state, would simply become the latest failed state incapable of providing services or meeting the payroll leading to rioting and the eventual complete collapse of the state of Palestine while the exhortations by Mahmoud Abbas pleading for financial assistance in order to at least reach some form of equilibrium and functionality as without aid, Abbas might even threaten that they would need to declare war on Israel to force the world to take notice.

The announcement before Biden left Washington last week was that neither President Obama nor anybody from the administration expects the visit to produce anything concerning the peace process as Biden will be discussing military aid package for the next decade with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the military command of Israel. If past experience is any indicator of future events, which it more often than not is, then there will be no military aid without concessions for peace and the Israeli leadership will be pressed and pressed and then threatened with an end to military aid, cancelling the F-35 JSF jet fighter deal, withholding of the United States veto in the Security Council on moves for Arab statehood, thus granting Palestinian statehood using the Green Line, the 1949 Armistice Line, which the Arab League demanded never be used as a border ever. There might be threats that the United States would assist and encourage the French to go forward with their plans for final peace talks which if they failed, then the world through the Security Council and General Assembly of the United Nations in a universal accordance would establish Palestine. There may even be floated the idea that Israel not only take whatever steps required to allow the formation of an Arab state named Palestine but also be made responsible for assisting and coordinating with the new state and held as the guarantors for its successful function. Granted this sounds preposterous, but this is not as far-fetched as you might first believe. Israel had been tasked with assisting the PA Security Forces assuring their functioning in Area B before the United States took to training the Palestinian Security Forces in Jordan for urban warfare and other tactical exercises under the command of Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton who succeeded Lt. Gen. William “Kip” Ward in December 2005. Their training has been similar in nature to elite infantry training in the United States. Why such training is provided to a security force which is not responsible for military tactics, but that is what the United States feels the security forces for the PA are going to need.

 

The reason that the United States may have for the extreme training would be believing they might be required to defend an actual nation of Palestine from any threats. But what threats as the neighbors of such a state would be Israel and Jordan, neither of which would have any reason for attacking the PA state unless attacked by them first. The only real threat would be terrorist groups such as Islamic Jihad, Hamas, al-Qaeda and Islamic State. In case of any of these entities attempting to take over any PA State would also pose direct threats to both Israel and Jordan thus it would be in both neighbors’ interest to assist the defense of the PA state if such was requested or possibly even if it was not, as long as the assistance was temporary as nobody desires a reinstating of any occupation. But this training was likely at the behest of the PA leadership which then begs a different question, why would the PA desire an offensive trained security force as security militaries are usually designed to hold their own ground and not having full infantry assault training as they are not exactly going to be forging beachheads from the West Bank as the Jordan River, Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee are the closest bodies of water. Still, there has to be a reason for the PA to have their security forces trained in general combat techniques and in urban warfare in addition to anti-terror operations. The anti-terror operations has an obvious reason, they wanted to understand the methodologies of how the IDF would respond to any major terror campaigns so as to be capable of blunting IDF efforts. Urban warfare training might be applicable against any attempt by Hamas to make an overt takeover of Judea and Samaria as they had done in Gaza. Of course the PA forces in Gaza had been trained and still managed to lose the entirety of Gaza within a few days when the final push came and the PA forces proved useless.

 

That leaves the question of what further use might having military operations training and general combat techniques be useful and what goals might the PA security forces, which number in the thousands of officers, be used towards? The only other target which the Arab Palestinians have ever claimed beyond driving the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea has been to overthrow the Monarchy of Jordan and allow the Arabs, who identify with the cause and quest for power of the PA against Israel, take complete control over Jordan. The main obstacle has been their lack of training and the fact that King Abdullah II’s military consists largely of tribesmen loyal to the crown which shows them preferential treatment and favor over the larger Palestinian population. This does not mean that the Palestinian people are not treated well and they do receive much support from the King and the government but the loyal tribesmen, especially those serving in the military and making up the reserve forces, serving the King in a show of gratitude. King Abdullah II has gained major support of the people from his actions when the Jordanian pilot captured by the Islamic State was tortured and executed in a barbaric manner burning him alive while trapping him in a cage and using the video as a message of superiority over Jordan and as a recruitment tool. Still, there have been those Jordanian Arab Palestinians, who have joined the Islamic State, as have peoples from all of the surrounding Arab Sunni states, but generally the population of Jordan are more sympathetic with the Arab Palestinians in Israel and desire that their military be more supportive of the fight against Israel even to the point of directly aiding the PA in any general uprisings such as the current intifada.

One must also remember the attempt by Yasser Arafat to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy and government in the early 1970s. The attempt to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy and take control of Jordan, something the many Bedouin tribes would oppose and who make-up the officer core due to their loyalty to the King, resulted in routing the coup attempt by Yasser Arafat. Their failure in Jordan was what forced the PLO into Lebanon where they quickly attempted a takeover of the Lebanese government resulting in Syria attempting to grab control over Lebanon taking advantage of the turmoil and confusion. This led to the Israeli intervention at the invitation of the Lebanese Christian militias. This resulted in a prolonged Israeli presence creating a buffer zone protecting the Israeli north. This interventional force did suffer a steady number of casualties from suicide bombings and other attacks which the left and the media in Israel used to apply pressure with sizeable demonstrations often by foreign financed NGOs from the left leading to Israel ending the interventional force presence. This permitted Hezballah to set-up their bunker systems and rocket launchers in the extreme south of Lebanon which eventually led to the very costly Second Lebanon War. One must also remember that Hezballah was a direct result of the PLO efforts to overthrow the Lebanese government in the mid and late 1970s.

 

The PLO was the direct progenitor of the PA which is as the PLO before it a direct arm of power projection of the Fatah movement. Any attempt to paint the PA as democratic is a farcical effort as there have been no elections, free or otherwise, since the debacle brought on by United States pressure to hold open elections which were won in large part by Hamas and not Fatah. This led directly to the Hamas flexing of their abilities and mastery and control in Gaza to oust the PA which had denied them their proper victory by basically imposing Fatah supremacy using the Presidency of Abbas. He assumed the position after Arafat’s demise as Arafat’s number two since the founding of the PLO, taking over of Arafat’s roles as leader of Fatah, the PA, PLO and presumed President for Life of any future state. The final straw for Hamas was the cancelling of Presidential election which they were sure to oust Abbas, something Abbas refused to permit as he exercised every bit of his powerful position to put a clamp on all PA and other political functions and preserve what he could.

 

All of this has not altered the grand plan of the PLO, and thus perhaps the PA, of a grander scheme and power play toppling the governances around the area and setting up their claim to be the true leaders of the Arab world. These efforts failed in the 1970s and are no closer to fruition today as Fatah is only holding on to power in the contested areas of Judea and Samaria, oddly enough, because of the efforts by Israel to keep Hamas and others from replacing them The PA would easily be toppled which would lead to a catastrophic terror war emanating from the then former PA controlled areas with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and who knows who else all perched on the southwest in Gaza and direct east in Judea and Samaria overlooking central Israeli population and industrial heart of Israel. This could lead to a far more disastrous rocket war from Hamas with their rockets all but incapable of missing vital targets in and around Tel Aviv and the central core of Israel, a heavily developed area. That is the reason that Israel has supported allowing the PA to remain in Abbas’s incapable and bumbling hands. The alternative is the devil Israel does not know and does not want to know. What they do know is that Abbas has less ability to control anything beyond incitement against Israel. Abbas is in a particularly uncomfortable position of needing to continue aggressions against Israel while making sure not to force any overt actions from Israel. Abbas is also relying on Israeli intelligence and presence in the contested areas of Judea and Samaria to prevent his being overthrown and very likely murdered even by those in the PA who believe him incompetent, or at least impotent in the face of Israel and their ‘occupation’ of the Israeli ancestral heartlands, Judea and Samaria.

 

Eventually this house of cards, which is the toothless PA, will unify, overthrow Abbas and believe they are ready and prepared to topple Israel. And on that day the contested areas will no longer be contested but in open revolt, a very temporary revolt, after which there will be imposed a one state solution and the end of incitement and the presence of the United Nations monstrosity that is UNRWA in Judea and Samaria. The truth is that the only result to the contested areas is complete and total control by Israel. Even if the world were to force the Arab state of Palestine on Israel, it would be a defenseless state, complete nonfunctional and failed state, and from the very beginnings would only devolve from there, with the ever fractious shards attempting to destroy the others and make a name by attacking Israel. Eventually Hamas or worse would emerge as the central power and this would lead to a costly and final war as Hamas or worse cannot be allowed to occupy any of the highlands overlooking central Israel. To allow such is suicide by the immediate thousand cuts made by inexpensive rockets needing no real guidance to strike at the heart of Israel. When such events do unfold, which are all but inevitable, Abbas will likely be the very first casualty and potentially at the hands of the very troops who now guard him, dying as every Caesar before has fallen. As soon as they are not paid their exorbitant salaries their loyalty will wane evaporating into the mists from whence they were born, and that will be the end of the PA. Very soon thereafter Israel will necessarily need to end the entire fiasco before it causes irreparable harm to Israeli infrastructure with attacks against her civilian populations where thousands are affected daily, and not the sparsely populated Negev regions.

 

The similar threat by Hamas and their longer range Iranian provided rocket engines and the ever larger payloads they carry deeper into the Israeli center which sparked the last Gaza War and will eventually lead to the final Gaza war which will result in the decimation of Hamas and Islamic Jihad and the crippling of any other sizeable force. The entire Arab Palestinian existence is that of two failed states whose only lifeline is their threatening Israel and being paid to do so. That cannot be permitted to reach its final goal of destroying Israel and murdering the six million plus Israeli Jews. The threat will eventually become sufficiently capable or sufficiently destructive despite their lack of credible force, only credible destruction, that will ultimately cause the quick and violent end of the Arab Palestinian autonomous states, Hamas’s Gaza and Fatah’s PA in Judea and Samaria. That is the sole finality and the one out for the PA is a successful takeover of Jordan giving them the arms necessary to bring on their destruction that much faster as the use of these weapons’ systems on Israel is an overt act of aggression and declaration of war, the final war.

 

Perhaps the best Israel can do is send Biden home joining those awaiting the election with the premise that it can’t get any worse. We are aware the Russians and Iranians are doing whatever they can, knowing that for them nothing could be better than Obama.

The Israeli Political Class is the Problem

 

There is a malaise in Israel. The pale it casts darkens all horizons. There are those who claim they are Zionists; And those who claim they are Nationalist; And there are those hiding behind a title of Zionism and Union with the world. Let’s face it, if you are truly a Zionist, truly a Nationalist then you would hold to the dream, the dream of the great Zionist Nationalists who went before. The ones whose names precede the State of Israel; the ones whose names echo in the minds of those who have the flame within; the giants whose tombs we approached with reverential honor and a small amount of trepidation because we know those graves will ask us what we have done. What can we tell these giants who handed us a State, a Jewish and Zionist State which spread from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. They understand the land lost in the great first war where we were unable to regain Gaza and all of Judea and Samaria and even a small part of Benyamin but worst of all we lost half of Yerushalayim including the entirety of the Old City, the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Moriah, as well as Kever Yoseph, Kever Rachael and the Cave of Machpelah. We lost Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal which were the Mounts of blessings and curses respectively and the curses far outnumbered the blessings, a warning we should always heed. As it was written:

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 11:29:7
וְהָיָה, כִּי יְבִיאֲךָ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-אַתָּה בָא-שָׁמָּה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ–וְנָתַתָּה אֶת-הַבְּרָכָה עַל-הַר גְּרִזִים, וְאֶת-הַקְּלָלָה עַל-הַר עֵיבָל.
And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt set the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.

Jericho, Bethlehem, Shechem (Nablus), Hevron, and all the lands, towns, cities which existed under Jordanian occupation from 1948-9 until liberated in June of 1967 in the Six Day War are returned to Eretz Yisroel and must be incorporated into the land in order that we may settle the lands of Eretz Yisroel. As the Jordanians had granted to those who desired citizenship, citizenship which it claimed to cancel after their losing the lands, proving these Arabs, who were no different than Jordanian Arabs, had no value to their brothers unless they were displacing, what even Jordanians would call, the accursed Jews, we can just feel the warmth. Those who were granted Jordanian citizenship should have immediately been given a simple choice; remain in Israel as alien Jordanian residents of Israel; request and work through an acclimation and absorption series of classes in Hebrew, Old Testament and Jewish traditions and practices; or take a generous offer for their lands and structures such as homes and businesses and cross the Allenby Bridge all the wealthier and then proceeded anywhere in the world but Israel. This would have settled the problems with the liberation of the remainders of Judea, Benyamin and Samaria and incorporated all of the lands within their natural borders of Israel. As far as the Waqf and the Temple Mount, they could have been granted jurisdiction over actual recognized Islamic structures while the different Christian sects would work out between themselves who was responsible and was the official caretaker of what parts of which Christian holy site, and the State of Israel would guard, clear, clean and allow universal prayer rights to all across the entirety of the Temple Mount not within a structure and thus under some governance.

 

No areas of now fully liberated and free Israel other than specific holy sites would be held and governed by some foreign entity, especially a terrorist group which is exactly that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is, just prettied up by renaming the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) to Fatah and then allow an election to place them in charge of something called the Palestinian Authority (PA) and claim they are now a partner for peace. It is all a scheming lie thought out by the powers other than Israel in the rest of the world such as the United Nations, European Union and its predecessor the European Common Market, the United Nations, Soviet Union, United States, Britain, France, Germany and some individual people with more money than brains all decided that they were slowly but inexorably going to destroy Israel replacing it with an Arab State, not the Arab State but an Arab state as it would be the twenty-third Arab State because twenty-two are not sufficient so the one and only Jewish State must be erased from the earth and replaced with the twenty-third, or if Hamas makes one and Fatah makes one they would be the twenty-third and twenty-fourth Arab States. But that would not be fair to Islamic Jihad so perhaps they could have a twenty-fifth Arab State. And the twenty or so self-important families who have gained sufficient power and finances to demand their own fiefdom? We cannot slight them after all they have done to enslave Palestinians. Truth be told, whatever Arab entities are formed would all be dysfunctional requiring a constant stream of money in order to claim functionality. Thus the world would be demanded to continue the investment of billions of Dollars and Euros every year with it soon to rise to trillions except for one small item; once these entities have taken Israel out, the world will lose all interest and these entities will be on their own which would soon result in five to ten surges of refugees leaving these dysfunctional states seeking the comfort of the European Union and member state’s safety net to care for them as they plot the overthrow of whatever friendly bureaucracy was feeding them. One need remember that the sole thing these Arabs have been trained to do is throw rocks and claim themselves victim to any and all conspiracies happen to be popular, the one percenters at the bottom using the government to allow them to change places with the top one percent. Even if such were possible and the European Union actually did such a useless venture, the new top one percent would be the bottom one percent within three years and the previous top one percent would rise from the ashes as unto the phoenix reborn from the flames and depths of poverty right back to near if not in the top one percent. But the world would be left wanting, forever the poorer, if they destroy Israel.

Why would we claim the world would be lost without Israel? Well, that is an easy one. Should Israel disappear, as the powers that be appear to desire, then soon the world would lose the remnants of the Jewish race as with nowhere to run and find other Jews ready to defend the family, they would simply perish as their connection to Judaism, true and Torah observant Judaism, is barely tenable as it is and would be cut forever without a place to call home. The rising anti-Semitism is claiming that its roots are in Israel and the brashness and irreconcilable rejection of making peace and allowing the formation of another Arab state taken out of its lands, its hide so to speak. The British Mandate lands were supposed to be the Jewish State but the British made as a justification for stealing over three-quarters of the land that the Jews would never number sufficient population to require as much land as was set aside, as if there would never in any future be the possibility of Jews in numbers to require more than the lands left for them which are attempting to again steal pieces. Jordan ended up with the lion’s share of the land but there is no manner of way the world would have Jordan absorb these people whom they once granted citizenship and then rescinded it when the land was returned to Israel. People need to understand that on the morning that Israel became a nation, her borders included all the lands west of the Jordan River, all of Gaza, all of Judea, all of Benyamin and all of Samaria. Jordan and Egypt were the true occupiers, the real colonialists taking lands from an indigenous people. But now there has been invented a new indigenous people who have their claimed roots in Judea and Samaria called Palestinians. They never resided in Syria, Jordan, Egypt or had ancestry from the Arabian Peninsula, they have lived in the “West Bank” practicing Islam for nine-thousand years according to a statement made and then retracted from the PLO Facebook page. Never mind that they were not present in the years before 1850 and almost none were reported residing here in Mark Twain’s account of his travels in the Holy Lands, neither Jew nor Arab as the entire population was as sparse as the vegetation, look it up.

 

But that has changed, and boy has it changed. There are bustling cities with tall new buildings with their glass and steel gleaming from amongst a patina of the old which still remains and refuses to surrender its land but slowly the new replaces the old as if a correction bringing modernity to a land whose ancient roots run deep into the soil. There is a vibrancy and in the north between the rising metropolises there are farms and open grazing lands still used by shepherds and their flocks who follow ancient routes to their grazing areas doing so as they have for centuries thus knowing when to move saving the lands so it will refresh for the visit next year. The mixing of new and old is even evident in the farming as in some of the less arable lands the water is recycled constantly with nutrients carefully injected into full hillsides of hydroponics raising crops and produce year round. There are orchards of olive trees seemingly as old as the hills whose sides they cling to as if to claim their area and protect it from other plants soaking up sun and soil. There are even mixtures of peoples with some wearing the dress from centuries gone faded into the past in Europe and the rest of the Western World but preserved as so much is in this truly ancient land that is sprouting a new shape amongst the old. Israel reflects the culture in which start-up companies appear in numbers unmatched around the world and only exceeded by nations beyond comparison in size and populations. Yet there is a hesitancy amongst many who fear the world and what it might think or say. In a land where boldness exudes from every corner and people strike out to force their way into the world and high-tech is the buzzword as well as the byword for so many, but those are not the politicians. Even those who made their name in technology and innovation and have now turned to politics soon lose their formidable presence and soon become hesitant, troubled. They begin to doubt even themselves, or so it seems. The brash and strikingly bold politicians who rose and defended the land in deed and word and always with style that was proper but always gave a spark of hubris appear to have deserted Israel and been replaced with the crafty and calculating always guarding their against misstep and so carefully crafting their words that they too often nuance their meaning making it unintelligible. The glamour and wonder of your words lose effect if their meaning is not starkly defined and presented framed and complete. Israel has too little precious land and lives in the midst of a roiling cauldron with wars surrounding her and threats come even from within the Knesset itself where more than a handful of traitors do stir. They are the ones with the brash boldness from which too many wilt. When they scream and make a tempest, it is requisite upon every true Zionist to take the wind from their sails and use it to sound the ram’s horns and bring down their pedestals like we brought down the walls of Jericho.

 

Perhaps what we have are too many nationalists who can live with splitting off pieces of land arguing demographics to give this away today and Hashem knows what tomorrow. The Zionist knows the boundaries which were promised by Hashem and knows that the rest of the world is equally aware though they lie and steal ambuscading that which is known but all too seldom stood upon as the principle they are. We need more Zionists of the bravado and principle as those of ages past, those like Ze’ev Jabotinsky, Rabbi Meir Kahane or more recently Menachem Begin who was a fighter who also knew the value of an honest peace. None of these Zionists would have allowed the bringing into the lands the beating heart of terrorism and murderer of all Israel if given the slightest opportunity. There is no need for Israel to surrender even a single atom of our lands because the Europeans or the Americans say we must. We need only listen to what we know and from the words of Hashem revealed in Torah, everything else is noise and confusion. We have to deal in reality of our requirement which was spelled out for us three thousand years ago when we were instructed to go and settle the land. We were not told to go and parcel out the lands to those who would simply take what we gave them and use it to launch new wars and attacks on our people. We even tried that and Hashem has made clear what our mistakes have been, we surrendered lands which were not ours to gift as these lands belong to Hashem. They do not belong to the Ministers of the Knesset; they do not belong to the mediators such as John Kerry or previously Madeline Albright or Hillary Clinton or anybody walking the lands today, yesterday or tomorrow. Hashem made it very concise and clear, the land belongs to Hashem and we are to be the caretakers, which does not include giving it to those who will despoil the land and create abominations upon our specifically outlined duty to the land that Hashem portioned out for us to care over. Hashem did not say share the land, that was the group the “Guess Who.” We need to return to doing what is prescribed in Torah and in that pursuit we will be blessed and any deviation from that is an accursed act for which we will reap curses. Where have all the Zionists gone, certainly not into politics and we need such to sacrifice and walk into the dens of iniquity, the lions’ den and be assured that Hashem will walk with you.
