Why the EU and UN Despise Israel?


Why do the European Union and the United Nations and so many others hate Israel? It is obvious, it did not fail. When the victorious powers of World War I decided to include forming a Jewish State in the ancient homelands of the Jews, they fully expected to be able to send all their Jews to this land where nobody had succeeded in forming a viable state. Not the Greeks, not the Romans, not the Byzantines, not any of the different Islamic rulers and thus it was expected the Jews would meet a similar fate. The expectation was the Jews would meet misery and hopelessness and surrender and need to beg the rest of the world to allow them to return to their subservience and being a kept people who lived at the mercy and generosity of others. After the Holocaust the Western World did feel the guilt for not at least taking even the most basic of attempts to stop the slaughter by bombing the rail lines leading to the concentration camps or taking the better option of allowing the Jews to emigrate from Germany and following it up with taking the Jews from the expanding Nazi controlled areas. The British may have had the greatest guilt, though their actions would never reveal such, as they refused to take the Jews and shut down entry for the Jews to the Mandate Region from which they had been tasked to allow the formation of a Jewish State by cutting the number of Jews to immigrate between 1933 to 1939 to a maximum of seventy-five-thousand each year and made even meeting that number as difficult as possible. The Nazis offered to force their Jews to be sent to the Mandate lands under British rule which the British refused claiming that the German Jews were the problem of the German government and the British had no concern on what the Germans did with them as long as it did not foist them on the British. The United States showed their colors by refusing to permit additional Germans even if they were Jewish as they had quotas, which were never filled but still the State Department, and Immigrations refused to accept the German Jews and when the MS St. Louis was refused to disembark the nine-hundred-thirty-seven Jewish refugees at Havana despite their having passports and complete paperwork as the Cuban government reneged on their offer and while the doomed ship slowly returned to Germany traveling slowly along the east coast of the United States continually petitioning for entrance pleading in radio messages, the United States government refused to permit them to enter the United States and provided the MS St. Louis with escort vessels to assure that nobody attempted to jump ship and swim to the shores of the United States. Eventually, the United Kingdom agreed to take 288 of the passengers who disembarked and traveled to the UK by other steamers. After much negotiation by Captain Schröder, the remaining 619 passengers were allowed to disembark at Antwerp; 224 were accepted by France, 214 by Belgium and 181 by the Netherlands. Unfortunately for the ones accepted into European nations ended up the fate of those nations falling before the Nazi war machine.

The reasoning that the Jews would fail in making their nation work was based on two opposing principles, the first was the seemingly unyielding lands which had foiled every attempt to tame the land and make the land produce by every previous successful and highly advanced for their ages that had made all the lands under their rule into productive lands but the area set aside for the Jewish State had foiled every attempt to tame it, let alone make it support a peoples. Secondly, the Jews were inferior people scorned by every civil society and considered inferior and incapable of acting at even a normal level as compared with normal people so how would these pathetic Jews ever succeed where all others had failed before them. So, by allowing the incompetent to be gathered to work lands that were impossible was the formula for only one comprehended result, complete and utter failure where the land itself would be the death of the vast majority of the Jews allowed to emigrate there and make the remainder so appreciative of whomever took them back in and cared for their needs would receive such praise and appreciation that the Jews would finally be humbled and accept their fate as the condemnable and damned people everyone knew they were. So, it was an adventure which could only work to make the rest of the world able to validate their superiority over the Jew after they failed to make the land produce sufficiently to support the Jews and were forced into begging for somebody, namely their European superiors, to save them before they all perished. Somewhere something did not quite go as expected. But before that there was more which was committed which should have made the failure all the more probable as within the first decade the Arab world cast out almost another million Jews leaving most of them without any of their wealth and even only the remnants they could shove into suitcases and trunk lockers leaving such things as family heirlooms, their businesses, their bank accounts, and whatever else that could be stolen as at least they were allowing them to leave with their lives. This addition of almost one-million all but destitute Jews were to be an additional and unsustainable addition to what was already presumably doomed to failure. As said earlier, something went awry and things did not turn out as expected.


That is where the world was delivered a surprise beyond imagination, the Jews succeeded. The Jews not only succeeded but thrived and actually performed what was considered not only impossible but could only be classified as miraculous as the nascent Jewish State survived, though they did technically lose some of their lands (though they gained areas to be under their complete control in rural areas in the Galilee but lost half of Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and the Old City to Jordan. Gaza to Egypt and the Golan Heights to Syria) but managed to survive an invasion by seven Arab nations and a number of militias including one of Arabs under the banner of the Mufti of Jerusalem, the same Mufti who spent most of World War II in Berlin as a guest of the leaders of the Third Reich producing propaganda broadcasts to be transmitted into the Arab world to turn them against the allied powers. The Jews not only met every challenge and survived but thrived and brought the dessert and swamps into a land blossoming with produce, made strides in irrigation such as drip irrigation which uses water even more sparingly than normal irrigation, invented new fruits and vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, and then started winning Nobel Prizes as if growing them in their greenhouses, and finally became a tech leader in the world in nearly every science all while fighting a number of wars brought upon them by aggressions by their neighbors as well as from terrorist groups targeting them both from within and without. The challenge of draining swamps, an immediate assault by seven neighbors, and becoming a leading nation in the sciences, economics and virtually every imaginable endeavor their people decided to pursue. Basically, as far as Europe and the world bodies were concerned the impossible is what the Jews managed when returned to their ancient homelands.


This success of Israel, the Jewish State, and her people, blossoming in so many fields was simply something beyond possible and completely unimagined. Somehow the impossible people were thrown into a complete wastelands which many thought to be an impossible land and then the impossible happened; the lands bloomed and brought forth riches and produce beyond what anybody might have imagined and grasses that supported flocks of sheep and herds of cows, impossible but that is what came to pass. The Bible could have advised the Europeans that this would be the case as it was stated that Israel was the lands which belongs to Hashem and that He trusted the Jewish People to bring forth its wonders and for whom the land would release its fruits and blossom. The land was promised not to produce for any other peoples other than the Jews. The Europeans had to know of these predictions from in the Old Testament but their faith in the Old Testament was no longer as they had replaced it with a New Testament and a new covenant which replaced the old covenant. Well, apparently the old covenant has some life left in her and the Jews are still getting the benefit of their Promised Lands giving up her yields and abundance which this land denied all others. The land and the Jewish People radiate great benefits and wealth and even now has provided great fields of natural gas just off her shores and even potentially within her lands as well as oil, Baruch Hashem. Many might call this a miracle; I like to think of it as a promise kept by Hashem whose promises should never be doubted. There is a reason for much of two-thousand years the Jews always finished their Seder meal and prayers those special nights with the phrase, “Next year in Jerusalem” (לשנה הבאה בירושלים).

The surprise may have initially been seen with a bemused amazement mixed with perhaps a small bit of admiration. But as many nerds have felt when they also show prowess at some physical or sports effort besting one of the letterman in multiple sports at some time, there is a degree of indignation and angst fueled animosity when those considered inferior prove proficient outside their textbooks, the little State of Israel has also received some less than warm regards as their successes continue and things just continue to get brighter and brighter. There are other considerations but why complicate the matter. The truth is the reasons behind much of the animosity shown towards Israel by the European Union and United Nations may never be fully understood. Granted the United Nations with its predominant Arab and Unaligned Nations voting as a single block in the General Assembly and having large representations in virtually every United Nations agencies and NGOs and the oil monies invested in souring any relations others may choose to show to Israel, the United Nations is already dangerous when it comes to all things Israel. Perhaps the United Nations single minded hatred for Israel influenced the European Union with many deciding it was easier to go along to get along and sacrificing Israel in order to improve relations with such a large majority of the rest of the world is a sacrifice seemingly worth making, especially since Israel shares her advances freely without attempting to deny even her worst enemies the use of her discoveries. Israel has even offered to instruct and work with a number of Arab nations installing and teaching them how to build, install, maintain and otherwise utilize their drip irrigation and other discoveries in agriculture which make irrigating the dessert and growing crops feasible. Unfortunately most have refused such assistance as apparently it is better to not have the capacity to conserve water while also raising crops using irrigation more efficiently is not sufficiently tempting to ease a relationship with Israel. The problem with many Islamic nations is that Israel was presumably lands which as once being ruled by Islam must, according to their interpretations of the Quran, always remain ruled by Islam. Perhaps it is a good thing that the British and Spanish never adopted this rule or they would feel they should own most of the planet between them.


Whether the driving animosity is a reflection of jealousy or going along with the majority to get along with the majority, ethics be damned, it matters little. The reality comes down to garner the hate of the Islamic world and the oil flow may stop; earn the disapproval of Israel is a no thrills, no chills, no downside as Israel does not hold back or victimize others just because they may not act in a friendly or respectful manner and spend too much time being critical as there can be cooperation in many areas even if the political arena is presenting difficult challenges. There are those who are critical of Israeli generosity and refusal to hold those who actively attempt to undermine and subvert their standing as a nation and consistently apply a double standard holding Israel to what might be termed a ridiculously higher standard than they hold other nations or even themselves.

There is a reason for holding Israel to a higher standard than other normal nations are held and it is because of the successes Israel has enjoyed, earned as they may be, and that Israel expects excellence from their people, their military and in all things the nation as a whole in order to earn their name as the chosen people for whom the swamps and rock strewn hills and desert all bloomed and produced great production beyond anything other nations had achieved. When the Jewish People proved theirs was a special relationship with these lands which had lain fallow and unproductive for nearly two-thousand years and also rose to the top in virtually every field of the sciences and humanities as well as becoming the “Start Up Nation” and a technological giant and in all these fields, to borrow a phrase often used by President Obama, punching well above their weight, with great achievement comes great expectations and the world of nations should expect more of Israel and the Israelis because they have proven that there is a society which can meet or exceed such expectations. Is it completely fair? No, of course not but who promised things would be fair. Were the years of persecutions stretching back over three-thousand years fair, of course not. So, now that the Jews have been returned to our natural lands should we expect things to be fair. We should expect things to be even more unbalanced and the world to expect things of magnificence from the state of Israel, from the nation who claims to want to be a light unto the nations. You expect to be an example for the rest of the world whether they desire it from you or not then you need to have them expect perfection or near as human beings can reach to perfection and to always demand you do better than all others and just be that light unto the nations because you meet or surpass every expectations. Our Torah tells us that we should strive to be the best that each of us can be and that we are to hold ourselves to the highest of standards so we should take any expectation raised by others as their challenge to us to accomplish such deeds. The only place where we need not listen to those detractors who would not be pleased no matter what is when they demand our surrender from the lands that were promised us by the world at the end of World War I. The world claims we must give up lands so the Arab Palestinians can have their own nation and to that we must ask then what is Jordan if not that nation. The lands east of the river were to be for the Arab Palestinians and the lands west of the river were promised for time immemorial for the Jewish State and this was the promise from the British and agreed to by the rest of the world otherwise all of what was the British Mandate should be the Jewish State. Who knows, after Islamic State decides to set their sights on Israel as their next target they will need to swallow Jordan and whatever of the Arab Palestinian PLO remains on their way to Jerusalem and Haifa and once Israel dances with the Islamic State the Russians and United States will both have one less worry on their plates.

How to Measure the Arab War on Israel and Beyond


The easiest summation of intent is vocalized every Friday in the waning hours of the afternoon in Tehran and Qom, Esfahan and Bam, Shiraz and Tabriz, Mashhad and Yazd, Zahedan and Ali-Sadr when after their deep devotion sworn to Allah said in their Mosques they gather together after their prayers and as a community chant “Death to Israel” over and over and over and along with their Death to Israel, no demonstration would be complete without the accompanying “Death to America” chanted right alongside; but that is just something they chant and has no actual intent in their words, none at all as the media has quoted their leaders promising the leaders of the United States they mean them no actual harm, it is just an exercise. Unfortunately there have been no such reassurances given to Prime Minister Netanyahu or any MK in the Knesset, not even MK Tibi or MK Zoabi who one would think they might be somewhat more attuned to as they are both Arabs and anti-Zionists, but no assurances at this end. But Iran is not a problem because President Obama has addressed the possible nuclear weapons program with an inspired deal which will bring results far beyond anything his skeptics claim are the shortcomings. That will be then and I am more concerned with the now, so let the Iran deal sort itself out and allow the United States and the American electorate elect people in the upcoming 2016 election who might actually know about foreign policy and have a cogent and coherent plan and a Congress which will back that vision; until then let us address that now which I am more concerned about.


For those who are my regular readers please bear with me a moment as I review some of the things we’ve discussed this past few weeks and months. There has been a slow and steady ramping of the levels and severity of terror attacks by Arabs that the media refers to as Palestinians in the Judea, Samaria, Benyamin, East Jerusalem, Old City and let us not forget the only violence the media has cared or even bothered to report on, the Temple Mount, though their coverage has been slanted in one of the most ingenious and perverse manner possible making the victims the cause and the violent agitators the unfortunate victims with no choice beyond the route they have taken, something we will try and clarify to some extent but there are more dangerous and vitally important messages which need to be communicated as the mainstream media refuses to report the entire news. The latest development this past week was the declaration made at the United Nations by Mahmoud Abbas the day before the “Palestinian Flag” was added to the national flags raised in the front of the United Nations, the world’s highest legal body, declared that the Palestinian Authority was no longer obliged to follow or be restricted or concerned with the Oslo Accords. He then challenged the world to gift him the independent state he was all but declaring with the boundaries he will never spell out so publically but would lead to a defenseless Israel or a completely replaced Israel with the world signing off. The truth of his denial of being covered or under the obligations of the Oslo Accords may have a number of ramifications that I am hopeful there are those in the world willing to enforce the real situation of Abbas walking away from any obligations and giving up any coverage by abrogating Oslo Accords. As far as the United Nations taking any action, forget about it. The Security Council has more than sufficient veto wielding members which will desire to protect their long history of investing in Yasser Arafat and after him Mahmoud Abbas to permit anything to interfere with their influence and “friend” in the Middle East just to protect Israel, the one and only Jewish State. And as far as the General Assembly is concerned, which has in the past five years censured or condemned Israel with its own votes or the votes of its many tendrils, with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is beyond all others in these efforts; they have not even considered anything against Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, China and Russia combined. Well, so much for the objectivity of the United Nations and its tendrils.


This makes the declaration of the Palestinian Authority into existence no longer valid and the entity of the Fatah Party as nothing more than a fascinating concept used by the Oslo Accords to give the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) a political cloak of respectability and incorporated this entity as the ruling political entity in the forming of the Palestinian Authority. Finally, without the Oslo Accords there is no Palestinian Authority, no Fatah, and the PLO is now also no longer a protected and scrubbed entity and has returned to being nothing beyond what it always was, a terrorist organization, nothing less. Since this declaration of the intent to return to their terrorist past and no longer hiding behind the Oslo Accord cloak of approval there was the murder in cold blood with automatic weapons and handguns peppering the bodies of Eitam Naama Henkin with their four youngest children in the backseat witnessing the entire blood sacrifice by two Arab Palestinians who then fled into a neighboring Arab community with authorities tracking down those responsible. A witness spoke of the father riddled with bullets managing to get out of the car and open the rear door and telling his children to run before collapsing. The children aged four, seven and nine years were taken into another Israelis car and informed them of their youngest four months was still in the vehicle and they retrieved the final child.


Over this weekend there were a number of rock throwing, Molotov cocktails, fireworks fired, shootings, stabbings and other assaults too numerous to count with at least four deaths in the past week and this is just the opening few days of the final intifada which was actually declared and instigated some time back, when exactly cannot be set as it is a ramping of violence until Israel will respond and then there will be the cries of disproportional force by Israel. Well, what exactly was the situation with two young parents with a car full of young children when facing murderers with assault rifles and handguns, the stabbing victims who were unarmed and all the other victims for the past years when facing terrorists unarmed, or facing unruly mobs screaming and even striking, kicking, cursing, spiting and other insults and if they react at all the security on the Temple Mount arrests the Jews as the Jordanian Waqf has jurisdiction over the Temple Mount and they have declared that no Arab can ever commit a crime on the Temple Mount and every Jews setting foot on the Temple Mount is to be considered a criminal just because of their presence. The days after the Eitam Naama Henkin were murdered there was great commotions with dancing, candies handed out, singing and shooting rounds into the air in numerous Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem and the Palestinian areas celebrating their brave warriors and their glorious victory in their hard won fight against two unarmed Israelis as even unarmed an Israeli must be that much of a threat that they need to be shot multiple times simply driving home after visiting friends.


It is obvious even to the most casual of observers that Mahmoud Abbas used his address at the General Assembly to openly declare open warfare against Israel. The ensuing week has produced sufficient carnage and escalated violence to prove that a declaration of war was exactly what Abbas intended and is the reality Israel is facing, open warfare. Mahmoud Abbas might believe that now is the best time to attempt to ramp up confrontations with Israel as Europe will probably not be all that attentive as they are facing their own Arab refugee problem with thousands upon thousands of refugees flocking across the face of Europe and attempting to find their golden spot to settle in and enjoy all the benefits that European Socialism has to offer. The one thing which will be in the Arabs favor is that, by all appearances, Prime Minister Netanyahu appears to be overly sensitive when it comes to potentially ending up on the wrong side of President Obama and Israel defending themselves from Arab violence seems to aggravate President Obama. Perhaps Prime Minister Netanyahu should write a song of woe using the words “Rifle shots to the east of us, Rockets to the West and we’re stuck in the middle without you.” I doubt even with a song and a dance Prime Minister Netanyahu could get President Obama to sign on to any act that Israel might choose to utilize to address the heightened violence from the PLO in the east and the increasing rockets being launched from Gaza in the West.


On the other hand, this might be the perfect time for Abbas to declare war on Israel before problems get too heated in Europe as the invasion begins to explode in their faces and they start experiencing the problems which are sure to arise when the refugees realize that Europe will not be providing the panacea of privileges and support long term for them and start expecting the refugees to normalize themselves into the society. This will run afoul once the instigators who have been injected into the ranks intermingled with the refugees and what their numbers are is a complete mystery. Islamic State has announced that they intended to inject some of their own ranks to infiltrate Europe and who knows how many IRGC, Hezballah or other terror entities as this is probably the greatest opportunity as much of Europe has opened their borders or have been less than effective in keeping the refugees out of their borders, well, with a few choice exceptions who are being scolded by those nations with the open borders. It is almost like they are demanding to share the threats and misery which will result from this influx of refugees, especially when it becomes proven beyond any doubt that many of the refugees are not from Syria.


The last theory is that the Arab Palestinians are actually timing their ramping from all across Judea, Samaria, Benyamin and Jerusalem from the east with the PLO terrorists while Hamas and Islamic Jihad are escalating their rocket attacks from the west potentially in concert with directives from Iran so as to present Israel with sufficient problems while the infiltrators injected in with the refugees in order to conduct terrorist activities or even to lay wait for further instructions possibly to instigate down the road should the refugees not adjust or European hospitality not quite live up to expectations, something already occurring at some borders such as Hungary and a few other mostly eastern European nations which were originally behind the Iron Curtain. Should terrorism continue to rise in Israel including the threats be carried out for more intentional firings across the Golan Heights into the norther Galilee once again turning the heights into a shooting gallery and potentially requiring the deployment of Iron Dome units in the north. This is being threatened by the IRGC and Hezballah as a means of internationalizing the Syrian debacle and also as an attempt to force other Arab or Muslim nations to support Bashir al-Assad as he will claim that of all the forces fighting in Syria only he and his allies are attempting to fight the real enemy, Israel. With the recent news that numbers of the older T-55 and T-72 tanks, at the least seventy-five, to Hezballah presumably to fight against the Islamic State but the real target we all know is for use against Israeli armor and infantry. Add to that the latest threats from Islamic Jihad to resume suicide murders using human bombs.

Whatever happens across the world, which by all appearances has entered some alternate reality where common sense and any proportionality of problems has been skewed, it is targeting Israel, which is no surprise, but also targeting Europe and potentially the United States. As there is an abundance of refugees which will surpass the potential for Europe to have sufficient treasuries, infrastructure, housing, employment or other means of preventing the entirety of the refugees to simply settle down and live off the social safety net, a system which has served as the last ditch funding for those Europeans who have hit the hardest of times, and was not designed to accommodate tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands or even millions (that’s thousands of thousands) influx of destitute refugees. The stretching of European goodwill beyond the breaking point is likely to place Europe into an economic death spiral and sending the excess thousands or even millions to the United States will only exacerbate the problem by targeting another nation with the same social overload crisis. That leaves the question as to what will the Europeans do should the refugees become ungrateful and demand more or threaten violence which can only be pushed back for a brief period because acquiescing will only be seen as a weakness which will entice the rabble-rousers to demand more and more until they cross a line which should have never been approached and the Europeans decide it is time for the refugees to head eastward and find some accommodating Islamic nation to house them or face the wrath of a Europe stung once again leading to a greater conflagration. Once Europe explodes nobody will care what Israel must do and that is why Abbas may have had bad timing but had no choice as well. The immediate future will be reported as the caring and great Christian heart, or socialist dream being realized by all, and in a period of time the reporting will become more edgy eventually leading to reporting violence and a growing inflammation spreading across Europe aimed at the refugees demanding they return to their native lands or else, and never question a European about or else as they invented the Inquisition and specialize in World Wars. Irritating Europe has always ended poorly for all involved and with the current state of weaponry the world may not survive another world at war, honest.

Why Israel Must Ignore the White House as Should the World


White House spokesman Josh Earnest read his part and I can only hope he was wincing with each word, and if not then he is unfeeling and dead between the ears or plain evil as his boss. The statement read, “The United States remains deeply concerned by the recent violence and escalating tensions surrounding Haram al-Sharif, or the Temple Mount, as it’s also known. The United States, as we routinely do, strongly condemn all acts of violence, particularly in that location that’s so sacred to many, many people. It is absolutely critical that all sides exercise restraint, refrain from provocative actions and rhetoric, and preserve unchanged the historic status quo on the Haram al-Sharif Temple Mount, both in word and in practice.” Let’s take the crazy train and try to understand this statement for what it is worth.


First and foremost, the referencing to the Temple Mount as the secondary name tells us that despite it being a slight interpretation from what is in the hardbound book “The Audacity of Hope” I will first give the direct quote which states “Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Well, the political winds are ugly and are being made that way by the rock throwers and not their targets who are the ones actually losing their homelands and President Obama is standing with them. The primary use of the name Haram al-Sharif tells all as that is not the name used by the world in which President Obama is presumably their main spokesperson.


Of course we all realize that President Obama is not the representative of the American people who stand with Israel by a sizeable margin and the supporters of Israel are predominantly Christians who far outnumber the Jewish supporters of Israel. I am glad to be able to claim that the majority of the most devout and honest supporters of Israel are Christians. A friend here coordinates and facilitates visits by Christian groups including many clergy and when they arrive they do not care so much about seeing anything but Jerusalem. Sure they also desire to visit Nazareth and Bethlehem but mostly come to support Israel and be able to tell others that they have visited Israel and it is alive, vibrant and a miracle every day it continues to defy the odds and exist surrounded as she is by a sea of pure hatred beyond descriptions. Many have done their homework and ask to visit the graves of venerable Rabbis from Israeli history, and we are talking Torah luminaries from over two-thousand years ago and then some. I am embarrassed to say that many of these Christians have a deeper knowledge of my Bible and the historic sages whose graves they demand to visit in place of any scheduled tour; they just want to pray with the Israelis and show their support. What can be said other than thank you my friends.


Back to the White House statement echoing the Europeans all who cast equal blame on both sides for the violence if we are fortunate and heap the majority of the blame on Israel for the violence. They know that the supposed violence by Israel are the police attempting to keep order and that the violence is instigated at the directives and desires of Mahmoud Abbas and the others who wish to destroy Israel, murder her people and then dance on their graves. The example of shared responsibility for the violence can be demonstrated with the horrific death of Alexander Levlovitz, the Israeli man who was stoned to death while driving home from Rosh Hashanah dinner with friends and family. His violence was driving while in an elevated state of joy when rocks flew through his windshield causing him to lose control of the car and he died in the ensuing crash. Others in the car came away with varying degree of injuries and none in the car got out of this murderous act unscathed. What was the crime for which Alexander Levlovitz was murdered? He was murdered because he was a Jew and an Israeli Jews on top of that. He was murdered by hatred so deep that it brings out an animal lust for the kill in those so inflicted. What is sad are the number of Western leaders who feel it necessary to equate keeping the law and imposing order and going about life with the murderous rage demonstrated daily by the Muslims who are throwing the rocks, bricks, Molotov Cocktails, cinderblocks and other objects at any vehicle sporting an Israeli license plate. For your information, the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) issues its own license plates which are different in color to the Israeli plates. The PA also issues drivers’ licenses and have autonomy over their sectors of lands which are within Areas A and B and thanks to Europeans buying land for Arabs and building their houses for them and making sure to move them into Area C which is legally Israeli. Increasingly they are also imposing their control in all areas and have even had PA security escort rioters onto the Temple Mount.


One might be tempted to inquire as to why the Western leadership would be so enamored with the Palestinian cause and always blame both sides equally unless they are handed a reason to blame only Israel. It might be something so simple as that they know that talking or demanding civility from the Arab Palestinians is a total waste of time and effort so in order to appear as if they are actually doing anything to help they demand Israel prove their civility in the face of barbarisms. They demand of Israel as it is the only side there is any hope of getting a humane result and thus appear to be doing something. Their affliction is to be able to appear to have made some difference even if that difference only serves to worsen the situation and make its eventual resolution that much less likely to be ended politely. Add onto that the fact that some may be acting out of their deep distrust or even hatred of the Jews and their actual preference to support the Arabs as they are the victims in the leftist mindset and thus must be aided while Israel is viewed as the imperial Western nation simply because it is a modern state. Below is a video of the fighting from within the al-Aqsa Mosque as they deploy from the safety of the Mosque the police are overwhelmed by the assault.


Many of Israel’s greatest detractors will pose the problem as the helpless Arab Palestinians need their assistance against the modern military and well trained police of Israel as the Arab Palestinians are the weaker side in numbers and equipment. This is the liberal mind-trap where every problem is broken into two neat parts, the advanced nation against the primitive culture and they will protect the more primal and primitive side completely unaware that eventually such support will bring these primitives to their doorstep and then what? I will tell you what be showing the greatest visual answer possible. When the very same primitives approached the oh so liberal borders of Europe the walls went up, the doors slammed shut, the police in riot gear along with some military were deployed and their borders were sealed tighter than new Tupperware lids. That is how the oh so liberal I support the tribal barbarians over the Israelis as the Arabs are so needing of our sympathy but not in my country, oh no. The Arabs teeming into Europe ran straight into their tolerance for living what they preach to Israel, just giving these poor unfortunates a place to live as you are on their lands. Well, they have now claimed Europe and they claim it as theirs and will fabricate how their ancestors lived in Europe more than five thousand years ago and were the more civilized until the blond haired blue eyed heathens came and pushed them into the desert in which they now live. What will the Europeans do when this claim is leveled against them?


That is an easy question to answer, Europe will do what Europeans are best at, they will rise up and slaughter whomever they perceive as responsible for the sad state of affairs which are coming and will continue to come now that the European leaders initially put out a welcome mat. What needs to be understood is that the Europeans did not expect the throngs to swarm over their borders and were expecting a few hundreds, not hundreds of thousands as their welcome mats produced. There is another little something which the Europeans will grab onto next as the majority of these refugees are now claiming they are not just Arabs, they are Palestinians Arabs. Apparently this did not get the response they expected as all they have seen is that the Europeans support the poor Arab Palestinians with great veneration of their cause and sympathy for their plight. Of course such goodwill is only dispensed from a comfortable distance, up close, well, not so much. The other reason for their Arab Palestinian claims is their plan B should Europe not be the wonderful lands they expect as then they will walk all the way back to the borders with Israel demanding their piece of the lands when Israel falls. Of course, perhaps the Europeans should get used to the throngs at their doorstep demanding their piece of European heaven where there is money for nothing and your chips (French fries) for free. Once Israel is felled then Europe is next and, as we have witnessed this past few weeks, then we will watch as the teeming hordes descend upon the gates and walls of Europe and then the United States.


Israel understands the reasons that they are refusing to be hospitable to these refugees as you fear what their effect will be on your civilization down the road when their youth are radicalized and told they are not being give the good jobs because of racist Western Europeans and how they need to take control of the government and only by supplanting the indigenous religious freedoms and forcing Islam on all the inhabitants will they receive justice. Yes, Europe, they will demand justice which will mean only one thing, that they are deserving and you are only permitted to give and give until you drop. And if you do not give in to their demands they will behead you, very simple, their way or the grave, that is the choice. Does any amongst you think Israel does not know what her plight would be like if they were not strong enough to survive on their own terms. Below is a shopping cart filled with bricks to be used in the rioting with police and security personnel.

Europeans had best get this little concept into their minds and prepare for the inevitable. These clashes can only end in one way, one side vanquishes the other. If the Israelis survive then the rest of the Western culture will continue. If Israel falls then Europe will start being chipped at and slowly subsumed by an Arab Muslim assault and eventual take-over by Islamic radicals. They will use your democratic system to gain control of a city or two through threat or simply voting their way into positions through which they can force Sharia into the records as the true law of the lands. Then starts the convert or die part of their equation. Eventually your eighty percent will dwindle to the point of extinction as more and more people flee to what they term as safer grounds. That begs the question as to how far will the politically correct people actually go in forming this noose to be placed around their necks? There is always the other choice, namely that if Israel fails then they will be knocking down your fences and swarming into Europe in numbers which make this stampede look like a small-town parade. Eventually will come the rock throwing followed by firebombs and then gun shots and then starts the real demonstrations with hundreds and then thousands demanding the actions of the non-believers be acceptable in the eyes of Islam. Women will be forced to wear conservative clothing or face being gang raped as any woman dressed showing that much skin is simply asking for whatever she gets even to include gang rapes. It does not have to be this way and it will only be exactly this scenario should Europeans continue to turn a blind eye to the obvious.


It is possible for Islam to be as mild, unassuming and private as any other religion in Western civilization. To achieve such a goal political Islam, which is practiced throughout the Middle East, must be defeated and their nations must be brought kicking and screaming into the twenty-first-century. The Muslims of Azerbaijan have a form of modern Islam which is compatible with Western democracies and freedom of religion permitted and even endorsed. There will always be those exceptions, those throwbacks who practice the Islam of conquest, the Caliphate, the original Islam which set out to conquer the world and which has many adherents still holding on to that dream. Western powers need to support leaders like Egyptian President al-Sisi with their call for modernizing Islam so it can fit within the modern societal belief in multi-cultural freedoms. Basically, the time has come to have the adherents of Islam return to their Mecca written Qurans and depart their Medina written Qurans. For an explanation of the difference please read our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? Islam is heading towards a crisis or the rest of the world is about to surrender to Allah’s swords, those are the choices and there is no third path.


As far as Israel is concerned, the choice is simple and comes down to there being only space for one nation between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. That nation can be a beacon of freedom and liberty or it can be a nation of oppressions and retrograde culture having absolutely no ability to modernize or to leave the path of conflict with the aim of bringing the world to their brand of Islam. What is actually nice about this is the choice will be decided as to how difficult and at what price the eventual winner will emerge. What is not so nice is there is a definitive possibility that the barbarian tribal nation bent on world conquest could end up the victor. With European aid or without the more modern multicultural though predominantly Jewish nation will prevail in the end even without Western assistance or perhaps despite such help which has forced Israel to settle for partial victories knowing full well that only a complete and demoralizing defeat will prevent the next war launched by the Arabs when they feel they have the advantage. That is why Israel fought so bitterly and hard to defeat the Iran treaty as the Israelis see it as accommodating the Iranians and selling Israeli safety down the river. Time will tell but the one promise which we can make is how goes Israel, so goes Europe and the remainder of the Western world. Yes, my friends, it is really that simple and the hordes sweeping over Europe despite the attempts to prevent it stands as all the proof any reasoning man could predict and see coming from a mile away. This invasion was the initial attempt to plant sufficient copies of Arab Palestinian malcontents across Europe making it ready for things to come. That would be a revolution which would seek to erase all the borders in Europe and make it an Islamic fortress where all remaining within these walls will soon pass and the doors will once again fly open but likely only briefly as the former Muslims after securing the good life will not want their apple-cart overturned by the same style invasion which predicated their becoming an Islamic stronghold. That is your choice our friends in Europe and we hope so deeply you choose well. Possibly both our survivals may be tied to finding the answer to this conundrum, so please choose wisely and after some deep taking stock in what Europe is and who the people were who made it into the place it is today, decide what you want for Europe to be in its future. Then consider how large a threat is sitting on your shores and borders and choose wisely or suffer the consequences for a very long time.
