Time is Coming for Israel and Israelis to Finally Decide

 

The backing down to the pressures from Jordan, Arab Palestinians, Jordanian display of a threat to the embassy, European demands, Muslims universally and the United States was necessary for reasons beyond the obvious. Questions need be asked about the handling of the placement of the metal detectors and the additional security cameras. What was interesting and possibly unnecessary were the angry demands from the United States. One might be tempted to inquire if the United States had been informed of the decision before the detectors were installed. We do not mean to intend that the United States needed to sanctify the move, merely that as one of, if not the closest, of Israeli allies would it not have been prudent to include them in the loop of important entities to notify. It is understandable why much of Europe would not be included in the list of entities to notify, as they would likely have submarined the idea before it got off the ground. It might also have been part of the strategy to inform the Waqf, the King of Jordan, the Saudis, the Egyptians and the Russians as the metal detectors were being installed and informed them this was nonnegotiable. Instead, apparently, nobody outside of Israel was consulted, informed or any prior or simultaneous notification was included. If all the above proves true, then it is possible that this was handled potentially with a clumsy plan doomed for failure. We will try not to judge the moves or motives of the situation, as that is more than water under the bridge but also over the dam and out into the ocean by now.

 

What needs to be readied is what to do when what is most assuredly going to come hits the fan. The Temple Mount will be completely vulnerable for the flow of weapons smuggling and even if numerous or even most of the attempts are somehow managed to be intercepted, there will be at least an additional ten percent which will succeed and possibly as much as seventy-five percent of the attempts succeeding. This will lead to an increase in shooting and stabbing terror attacks. These will cause unrest but many will be prevented by Israeli citizens as many have permits for firearms and there are off duty IDF soldiers nearly everyplace in Israel. There is a greater threat that an open Temple Mount will pose and this will only be able to be prevented by very diligent and ever vigilant intelligence work. The real problem will be the smuggling of explosives for making bomb belts and car bombs. Such weapons will not be utilized immediately as these will not be smuggled by youth seeking their fifteen minutes of fame, a new playground in their name and their family paid handsomely for as long as the Palestinian Authority (PA) terror machine is permitted to operate. Things such as explosives will be smuggled by PA operatives with a set of plans already decided and planned for years ago just waiting for an open opportunity to be set in motion. Turkey has been subjected to such attacks as depicted in the picture below. This was a single car loaded with explosives used to murder and injure soldiers in the Turkish Military. Such an attack near a bus station near an IDF base would be a catastrophic shock in Israel as these young men and women are the best and many noble of heart who would likely have joined even if it were not required. Anyone who has read about what happens when one of these young soldiers is killed by a terrorist and tens of thousands and more come to the funeral or attend some ceremony dedicated to their memory even though many attendees have no relation nor even knew the family from whence they came, but they are all struck as if the loss was one from their own family.

The reason is simple, because each loss is a member of their family, the family of Abraham, Isaack and Jacob. The Jews are a unique People as we are a People, a Nation, a Religion and most of all, a Family. This is something that the Israeli politicians need be reminded about from time to time, they are leading a family. Even those within our borders who choose to live in peace with us we consider like family. Torah teaches that we must show kindness to the stranger, as we were strangers in a strange land, Mitzraim. Torah instructs that we are to permit those living amongst us in our land three choices and to treat them according to their choice. Those who are willing to live within our land respecting our laws and following the seven laws of the Noahic Code (see below) are to be treated as an accepted person. Those who choose not to live by these restrictions but willing to leave and seek life elsewhere where their expectations would be better met, we are to permit them to leave with their possessions, family and wealth. The final group are those who refuse our ways and the laws and demand we accept their rule over us, these are the ones who desire to war with Israel and are to be granted that desire and we are to war with them until they are vanquished or fled from our lands.

Should the Arab Palestinians choose that they desire to have war with Israel, they should be accommodated. Those who choose not to fight and prefer to live in peace should be accepted as alien residents with basic religious, legal, and ownership rights just as if they were a Jew living in our lands. But as far as our neighbors, they should be treated fairly and we should not meddle in their affairs and neither should they be permitted to meddle in our affairs. This goes for all nations both near and distant. Further, those nations desiring peaceful and normal relations should be treated with respect exactly in the same measure as they show Israel. Nations desiring adversarial relations should be spurned and relations withheld. As far as supporting the King of Jordan in not upsetting his Arab population such that they do not arise and depose him, that should be left to Jordanian governance and people and be no concern for Israel, especially in our internal actions. As far as the Waqf is concerned, they may be permitted to care for the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque but their jurisdiction should end at the doors to these Islamic shrines. Such is more than fair and far better consideration than anything Jewish is granted by any Arab Muslim nation has given any Jewish holy site. Should Jordan refuse such a proposal, then perhaps the time has arrived for the Waqf to be returned to Jordan where their mischief can eventually be forgotten.

 

The Hashemite King claims that only he offers Israel peace and friendship but his actions and demands are not those of a friend. What is of even greater interest are the offers made by the Jordanian who is Palestine leader Mudar Zahran, currently the Secretary General of the Jordan Opposition Coalition (JOC), who propose the deposing of the Hashemite rule and the installation of a democracy allowing the Palestinian Arab majority to free themselves. Mudar Zahran and the JOC have proposed that they also incorporate the Arab Palestinians from Gaza, Judea and Samaria who wish to live under their own rule without any restrictions in their own nation. The JOC has proposed changing the name of Jordan to Palestine thus ending the PLO and PA claims to Israel and granting the Jews sovereignty from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, as was the agreement in countless treaties. This is a group that the Israelis should allow to progress to its logical conclusion. Israel should support and work with the JOC and the United States to divide Jordan into Palestine and Jordan allowing the Hashemites to continue their rule with those who desire remaining with the King and the State of Palestine for the Arabs from Jordan and those presumably exiled within Israel and elsewhere. The JOC has expressed their desire to unite the entirety of Arab Palestinians in their rightful nation formed by the British out of 78% of the Mandate leaving the remaining 22% for the Jewish State with the Jordan River as the border between the two nations. Theirs is an idea to get behind and is the most uncovered and undiscussed solution to what has been an unsolvable situation. We wonder why this is the best-kept secret the world never wants to see the light of day? Perhaps it is because it leaves Israel intact, undestroyed, healthy and free from threats. Imagine that.

A Zionist Begs to Differ

 

Reading an Arutz Sheva Editorial by Dr. Martin Sherman titled, INTO THE FRAY: Like manna from heaven – for Israel’s detractors we would like to copy any number of quotes from the start and recommend the remainder of the editorial to our readers as well as respond ourselves.

Former Prime Minister and former Defense Minister, Ehud Barak stated on Channel 10 program from May 20, 2016 stated, “Israel has been infected by the seeds of fascism …There are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government.”
Head of opposition, Yitzhak Herzog, Knesset, May 23, 2016, proclaimed, “Today we have a country afflicted with ultra-nationalistic extremism, infected with the seeds of fascism and chauvinism.”
Nabil al-Arabi Secretary-General of the Arab League, Cairo May 28, 2016, observed, “Israel has truly become today the last bastion of fascism, colonialism and racial discrimination in the world.”
Former defense minister Moshe “Bogie” Yaalon, Resignation speech, May 20, 2016, retorted, “I fought with all my might against the phenomena of extremism, violence and racism in Israeli society that are threatening our national resilience and are seeping into the Israel Defense Forces; in fact already harming it… But to my great regret, extremist and dangerous forces have taken over Israel and the Likud party.”
Mahmoud Abbas, Head of the Palestinian Authority, Cairo, May 28, 2016, accused, “Today Israel is suffering a process of ongoing radicalization and increasing extremism, which has brought criticism from senior Israelis against their government. They all say that Israel behaves in a fascist and racist manner. They say so. Like the deputy chief of staff of the IDF said ‘Our behavior is reminiscent of the behavior of the Nazis prior to WW II’”.

 

These are a few examples all of which have followed Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan who stated in a speech given on Wednesday evening, May 4, 2016, at the start of Yom Hashoah, or Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, at a kibbutz in central Israel near Netanya where he stated, “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the horrifying processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then; seventy, eighty, and ninety years ago; and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016. There is nothing easier than hating the other. There is nothing easier than raising fears and sowing terror. There is nothing easier than becoming callous, morally corrupt and hypocritical.”

 

This original commentary drew the ire of a number of people both public and private and led to a rift in the halls of power as the Prime Minister found the comments repulsive while then Defense Minister not only condoned the Generals’ right to freedom of speech but encouraged other military brass to freely speak out against the government they serve if they have any doubts or contrary opinions. This quickly led to replacing Moshe Ya’alon as Defense Minister. Where military personnel do possess freedom to express themselves in private settings and not in their capacity as an officer, when appearing representing their position in the military they may not speak against the government elected by the people that they serve under. Generals and other military brass do not make policy nor do they have the right of criticism against the government and the policies they make, their job is to carry out the policies and commands which come from that government. Theirs is duty and country before all else and they are to appear loyal and dutiful whether they agree with the elected governing coalition or not. If generals in the military are speaking against the government, then what is to prevent lesser ranks from speaking out against the general and on and on down the command chain as once that chain is broken at one point, it weakens every other point in the chain below potentially leading to chaos within the ranks. Generals need to act with the same deference to the elected governance as they expect from those serving under them as they serve under the civilian government, not coequal. The Prime Minister was well within his rights and acted properly when facing blatant insubordination and IDF Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan also should have been punished and forced to retire or face a general courts martial for gross insubordination and disrespect for the chain of command.

 

Unfortunately, in a democratic and free society there are no measures by which retired leaders of the military, intelligence community and other areas of government where while in service insubordination is punishable, no such restraints exist. The same can be said of those politicians who sit in the opposition. As long as those challenging the sitting government are retired from service and not in any manner a member of the active or call-up reserves, they are free to speak their minds and oppose any government but should be restrained to mitigate their comments by adding a disclaimer that these are personal views and are not in any means to be considered officially supported by their former military, intelligence or other enforcement community which is by its nature subordinate to the government while they remain in service under any means including ready reserves as such position still bestows upon them the privilege and responsibilities of their rank. Still, there is a seeming preponderance of retired military and intelligence as well as law and border enforcement personnel who are more than ready to denounce and otherwise protest vociferously any Zionist or nationalist governments and position while seemingly there are none who take an opposite view ever quoted or mentioned in the media coverage. One would have to believe that the entirety of military, enforcement and intelligence personnel are diametrically opposed to the current government and have always held views which could only have made their ability to serve with full belief, trust, confidence and command authority under any Zionist, nationalist or right leaning government during their time of service. One can only wonder why more command officers have not retired in protest if they find the nation, society and government to be such an anathema to their strongly held views. How are the people to have faith that these officers would follow orders if their personal feelings are that the government is wrong in all its views and is destroying their nation? Such officers should be weeded from service as they would be ineffective at commanding with conviction.

 

Military discipline within the ranks is of paramount importance which any Commissioned Officer or even Non-Commissioned Officer will attest. There is not functional military if a soldier can disregard their responsibilities simply because they disagree with some politics. That goes just as much for the soldiers who claim their politics prevents them from operating beyond the Green Line as it does for especially the Generals at the highest levels of command that they support their commands as they are presented by the civilian government without any dissenting or questioning of these commands as long as they are legal commands. Legal commands have absolutely nothing to do with an officer’s political beliefs; they simply need not be outside of those limitations in place by war crimes laws or constitutional restraints. An officer has every right to refuse an order to cleanse a town, village or other area of life as that constitutes a war crime. On the other hand, being ordered to quell a riot in a location which includes people with whom the officer had strong feeling of sympathy protesting a political view the officer concurs with does not mean that they can refuse to carry out the order. Sure they could request not to be placed in such a situation and may explain their discomfort but discomfort be damned, if they are still given such an order they are to carry the order out to the best of their abilities. They may have been given the order expressly because they sympathize with the protesters as the officer giving the order chose them in order to assure that minimal force and largely coercion and discourse be used and force as an absolute last resort. This is further why the officer in such a case even without further explanation should carry out the order as another officer might take such an order and use force as their first option as they disagreed with the protest and had a visceral contempt for the protestors. Such also would be a reasonable reason not to give the assignment to the second officer and why the first officer would be preferred for the task.

 

Often military orders when they reach the lower rank individuals make little sense and it is not until well up the chain of command that a general pattern and potentially a feel for the reasoning and the goals becomes intelligible but even that is often nowhere near the whole picture. For the whole picture one may have to go well beyond even the theater commanding general to the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff or even the President in the United States military. With separate commands for the Air Force, Marines, Army and Navy it is possible that no one branch of the service understands the entirety of the mission. The nice thing is that one need not know everything for the entire mission to succeed; all one need know is what exactly is their part in the bigger picture and doing what they were told, preferably without undue questions. After all, how many questions can one have when told to hold both sides of a bridge until relieved? Eventually, when ammunition and hopes running equally low it may come to mind to call headquarters and inquire as to when one might expect to be relieved. They likely will not like their answer.

 

There will be some who may ask what about initiative and taking additional tasks onto oneself and their individual unit. That may or may not work to one’s advantage. Let’s take a hypothetical situation using that bridge example. While holding the bridge the Sergeant or Lieutenant notice another bridge about half a mile upstream and decide to hold both bridges. What these brilliant tacticians were unaware of was that there would be a train transiting that very bridge they took upon themselves to also hold and Command has a massive bombing and artillery barrage planned to take out the bridge with the train in transit. Their men would probably not enjoy being on the wrong end of such an assault which is why you hold the bridge you were ordered to hold and nothing more.

 

This is also why military personnel in their official capacity are not to express their ideas on policies; even those which may not initially appear to have any military consequence. Everything stated by a high ranking military officer has a political slant whether intended or not. Where things like it is raining or what a nice sunny day may appear innocent enough, once again they should clear such statements all the way up their chain of command if that is what is required to have their wording properly approved, and that means every word, even reciting the first three lines of a poem, in French, the poem “Chanson d’Automne,” which means “Autumn song.”

“When a sighing begins
In the violins
Of the autumn-song”

This would have been a disastrous poem for an allied officer to have recited on the BBC anytime too far in advance of the D-Day invasion of France as it was also the trigger signal that the invasion was imminent and the individual French Underground units were to prepare to destroy their assigned rail lines and bridges. We would not have wanted them reacting to key words too far in advance.

 

Military personnel of all ranks are to be subordinate to the civilian government and should show support despite any misgivings they may have simply as a deference to the will of the public and to keep morale within the ranks. Probably part of the reason there exist enlistees who express conflicting desires such as serving in an elite unit but only if it is not in certain sensitive areas. Where do they honestly think that elite units spend most of their time, Tel Aviv beaches? With some high ranking military officers speaking out against the government or being overtly critical of certain public views and equating these views with the views of pre-Nazi Germany right before Hitler came to power has ramifications beyond disregard for the people and the government. Such outlandish, and likely false equivalence, makes for bait and ammunition for those who are opposed of the government and wish to use such quotes in support of the BDS movement or for United Nations condemnation of Israel. It should be noted that amongst the quotes at the beginning of the article is one by Mahmoud Abbas which is so similar in content and slant that one could be excused for believing he was another high ranking Israeli and not the leader of a terrorist group operating within the Palestinian Authority, as Abbas still heads Fatah and the PLO, both designated terror entities at some time in the past and present (the PLO still is considered a terror group) and used a direct quote from the Deputy Chief of Staff of the IDF who was credited with the quote, “Our behavior is reminiscent of the behavior of the Nazis prior to WW II.” His direct quote from his speech on the evening at the start of Yom Hashoah, or Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day was, “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the horrifying processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then; seventy, eighty, and ninety years ago; and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016. There is nothing easier than hating the other.” True, Abbas did not quote him directly but used his words to make the tie in that the Israelis are acting like Nazis and there is nothing that can refute his misquote of carrying a similar message as stated by Deputy Chief of Staff General Yair Golan. His words were the dissenting and condemnation of Israel used this time. Who wishes to step forward and give the next anti-Semite the golden quotes with which to hang us all? If Israelis allow our political differences to bring us to voicing condemnation of our beloved Israel which are more vile and damning because our own are saying them, then we may as well pack our bags and be prepared to be thrown from our own blessed lands.

 

Whether you desire to believe that Judea and Samaria are the core, the heart of our ancient lands does not alter the proof that they are exactly that. It does not take a Biblical scholar to realize that Jericho, Jerusalem, Shechem, Hebron, Gezer, Debir, Azekah, Ayalon, Gibeon, Ai and the rest on the map below which shows simply amongst the initial cities conquered by Joshua after crossing the Jordan River.

 

Cities Conquered by Joshua as Recounted in Kings In the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament

Cities Conquered by Joshua as Recounted in Kings
In the Hebrew Bible the Old Testament

 

Quite a convincing argument when the Bible paints a picture with its words and historians make maps directly from the historic records as to where these ancient, and often continued to modern times, were located and what resulted from Biblical times. Where we are not claiming that these conquests grant Israel rights to all the lands conquered between Moses, Joshua, King David and King Solomon; but what we would claim is the lands promised by the world including the then Arab League after World War I and placed on paper by the British, adopted by the League of Nations, Ratified in the Anglo-American Treaty and accepted by the United Nations under Article 80. These agreements granted Israel the remaining lands of the British Mandate after 78% was taken from west of the Jordan River and used to fashion the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan which upon their independence renamed the area Jordan leaving the remaining 22% west of the Jordan River for the Jewish State. When after their genocidally inspired and declared invasion of the nascent State of Israel the morning of May 15, 1948 as seven Arab Armies from, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen joined the Arabs under the Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini leading Arabs from within and outside of the State of Israel upon his return from Berlin where he spent much of World War II and was returned by the British; the peace was made with Jordan occupying Judea and Samaria and Egypt occupying Gaza and Syria occupying the Golan Heights, lands originally denoted for Israel (though some debate the Golan Heights claiming they were belonging to the French Mandate and thus Syria and Lebanon would decide their fate). The entire time these Israeli lands were occupied, there was no clamor for the founding of a Palestine State for Arabs and this was only decried after the Arabs again attacked Israel in 1967 intending to, as stated by Egyptian leaders, “Drive the Jews into the Sea;” and when Israel liberated her lands not perishing before the Arab armies, then came the idea to make another Arab state carved from lands known to belong rightfully to Israel. Biblically or treaties made in the Twentieth Century, the lands west of the Jordan River belong rightfully and legally to Israel. That is the reason that the Arab League and the Arab groups such as the PA refuse to take their claim before any world court as they know the truth which reveals their falsehoods and pretenses for what they are, naked aggressions attempting to destroy a member state of the United Nations, one which the United Nations appears unprepared to judge and treat with equal fervor they do the lie intended to destroy and replace the Jewish State and murder its Jewish population. The Arab powers in 1948 claimed they would complete the Final Solution which Hitler failed to accomplish and that should tell all who are acting as the Nazis despite what leftist and self-despising individuals might claim in making their political ambitions known. The truth is that the leaders of the Arab rejectionists promised their people in 1948 that they would slaughter the Jews and enjoy their spoils. They have not altered that promise or a single letter since and state so in the Charter of the PLO as well as Hamas and Hezballah. As their promise is the elimination of Israel, the murder of her Jewish populations, and for Hamas and Hezballah this should be followed by the elimination of Jews worldwide while conquering the world for Allah; these leaders cannot accept a two state solution as they are fully vested in a single Arab state solution and a form of the Final Solution for the Jews. That is what has made any compromise impossible and even if the Jews were to offer to withdraw to Tel Aviv, the Arab leaders would continue to claim the right to reject the Jewish presence on their sacred lands, the lands the Arabs conquered somewhere in the Seventh Century which still leaves the Jews the initial claimants by any living people. Am Yisroel Chai.

Where are the Foundations of Netanyahu’s Building Tenders?

As we approach the third in the presumably four terrorist murderer releases, Prime Minister Netanyahu has also included, as he has with the previous releases, a slip of paper and an announcement that another so many thousands of tenders to build houses beyond the Green Line. This cannot be confused with contracts with construction companies to actually build housing, it is a slip of paper promising to claim to want to build houses though they likely will never be constructed. These tenders to build are simply placebo documents meant to assuage the pain of those who have suffered the loss of loved ones to those very same terrorists as well as give the left something to complain over thus lessening if not drowning out the protests from the Zionists. These slips of paper issued by Prime Minister Netanyahu are just that as Prime Minister Netanyahu has already made a backroom deal and caved to Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas demands and backed by United States Secretary of State Kerry.

 

It is part of the assurances Secretary Kerry presumably made with Chairman Abbas to fulfill every last one of his list of preconditions. This agreement came after the release of the first group of terrorists as Prime Minister Netanyahu issued the standard bromide of housing tenders along with the terrorists and Chairman Abbas demanded from Secretary Kerry that none of the plans to build could be allowed or the Palestinians would walk from the meetings and break off all negotiations. This arm twisting came after Chairman Abbas had agreed to allow Israeli construction east of the Green Line as he decided to choose the release of arch-terrorists over a building freeze. Of course Abbas knew that all he would need do is complain and put on his irritated look threatening to scuttle the peace process and he could have both the terrorist release and the building freeze. Secretary Kerry was a sure fire slave to any and all of Chairman Abbas’s demands as Kerry will do virtually anything to allow the peace process to appear to have any future life. This means nothing is beyond reason to grant the Palestinians as all they have to do is ask and threaten to walk while no threat is off the table to threaten the Israelis to force them not only to continue the negotiations but to grant any demand that Secretary Kerry carries over to them after receiving his marching orders from Chairman Abbas.

 

Many people wonder why this arrangement is permitted to continue by the Israelis as they are slowly being torn asunder and having the very existence of Israel as the home for the Jews utterly and completely destroyed. The truth is this building freeze has been enforced by Netanyahu since returning to the office of Prime Minister. Initially, Prime Minister Netanyahu tasked Minister of Defense Ehud Barak with the unenviable job of enforcing by any means necessitated a building freeze for all areas beyond the Green Line in Judea, Samaria and Benyamin or the entirety of the so-called West Bank. This channeled great amounts of scorn to fall upon Minister Barak which many believed he deserved due to his positions and established participation in the initiation and structuring of the Oslo Accords. With Ehud Barak finally deciding to leave political public service, Prime Minister Netanyahu no longer had someone to rely upon who has as proven, faithful and untarnished record of liberal progressive anti-Zionist views and opposing all construction in what they honestly believed was destine to become a part of the Palestinian State to enforce his building freeze. Thus, Prime Minister Netanyahu has allowed truth to surge forth that it was his view all along that a building freeze be enforced in order to genuflect to the Palestinians and the demands and preconditions of Chairman Abbas. What makes this even more perilous for Israel is that both President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are fully aware that they have a compliant, malleable and weak person as Prime Minister of Israel who can be forced and pushed and will not stand firm, all he demands is to be permitted to talk a good game pretending to strongly support a Zionist position. Prime Minister Netanyahu may even truly feel and hold a Zionist position but has shown only the ability to talk the game and has virtually always fallen short of enforcing and implementing a Zionist agenda. Perhaps Netanyahu could be given a position where all he is required to do is give speeches supporting Israel, Zionism and Torah.

 

Granted Prime Minister Netanyahu is more supportive of Zionism and Zionist principles than most of the previous Prime Ministers Ehud Olmert, Ariel Sharon, Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres. What Israel could really use is a Prime Minister in the mold of Yitzhak Shamir or Menachem Begin, both of whom stood up against pressures and demands from the United States yet managed to continue to have good relations. The truth be told, one generates greater respect and better relations by standing strongly for your beliefs even if doing so places you in opposition to the desires and positions of others. By virtually surrendering and bending over to meet every spoken desired position or policy you engender ideas which influence others to simply take advantage of your weak will and disrespect your positions disregarding them completely as they speak praises of your ability to compromise but honestly seeking your complete and final surrender. The time has come for Israel to find new leaders who are not compromised by the last twenty years. Israelis need to find the next Prime Minister who is a dedicated and forceful Zionist who will refuse to kowtow to foreign pressures and truly pursue the Zionist agenda and work to fulfill the Torah requirement to settle the land. Once Israelis and the Israeli leadership combine to present a united front that demands Israeli rights to all of our ancient homeland all the forces demanding the destruction of the Jewish state will begin their withdrawal from the debate. For those who refuse to live in Israel and recognizing that she is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious society which will be ruled with the ideals of Judaism and Zionism as the primary inspiration in the making of laws and celebrating traditions while respecting other religions, can depart and receive compensation for their losses with the granting of a one-time monetary payment to assist them in establishing a new home in whatever country they should choose to reside. The Prime Minister of Israel needs to insist that the world honor the promises and treaties made between the two World Wars which called for the institution of a Jewish state in their ancient homelands with no exception or formation of other entities within these guaranteed borders as described in these treaties and conferences. Israel and the Jewish people are not demanding anything beyond the promises and assurances made with them at the end of World War I as the remnants of the Ottoman Empire were divided up by the victors which established much of the map of the Middle East and North Africa. Just as each nation came into being, Israel was also given guarantees which inevitably grant that Israel shall be governor over all the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. This is far less than the original promises which initially granted the Jewish state the lands west from the Iraq border to the Mediterranean Sea. In the Churchill White Papers the Zionists granted the one time release of the lands between the Jordan River to the Iraq border to form a Palestinian Arab state under the rule of the Hashemite family. The remainder of the British Mandate was guaranteed by this treaty to be granted to the Jews indivisible for all time. What part of indivisible does the world, which agreed to grant all of the British Mandate lands originally at the San Remo conference treaty, not understand?
