Apocalypse Israel Skewered by Trump and Company

 

President Trump has assembled a group to formulate the most marvelous peace proposal which they will craft such that Mahmoud Abbas will feel comfortable taking it demanding two or three adjustments and Israel will be informed that their military is so dependent on American provisions that they can simply sit down, shut up and take their medicine because the object is to allow Trump to accomplish what no one before him had been able to do, and if Israel must suffer some inconvenience, well it is about time and this time they will simply bite the bullet and take whatever is coming. A senior White House adviser said Trump’s Mideast peace plan would attempt to tackle hot-button issues such as the status of Jerusalem and West Bank settlements.

The team includes Jason Greenblatt, son-in-law and chief Middle East adviser Jared Kushner, Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman with this four-member team reportedly also consulting with State Department officials along with US Consul General in Jerusalem Donald Blome. This was meant to impress everybody and with Jared Kushner and David Friedman on board, Israel should have nothing to worry about, right? We have seen dream teams before and we can only hope that this will be the final dream team, whether they succeed or fail. Every time there is one of these great ventures, Israel is pressured and forced to surrender lands and sovereignty to the Arabs and the Arabs are to make promises with their full intention of ignoring them two minutes later, if that long. Israel should work to minimize the damage which will be coming simply because President Trump is the greatest deal-maker in the world and he will make this deal, he has promised exactly that. Unfortunately, President Trump will deliver on this deal even if it all but kills Israel in the process, if not then, the coming war will be moments after everybody finishes glad handing one another over the miracle they had achieved.

Perhaps this is the time for a few quotes from the past week or so about these developments would be in order. First up is Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt who told The New York Times, “We have spent a lot of time listening to and engaging with the Israelis, Palestinians and key regional leaders over the past few months to help reach an enduring peace deal. We are not going to put an artificial timeline on the development or presentation of any specific ideas and will also never impose a deal. Our goal is to facilitate, not dictate, a lasting peace agreement to improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and security across the region.”

The New York Times reported also that both sides would be required to commit to confidence building measures, so, here we go again. “For Israel, it could include limiting settlement construction to current blocs without taking new land, recommitting to a two-state solution and redesignating a small part of the West Bank to give Palestinians more control.” Here we go again, no more houses to be built in the towns and not more construction even of places which would provide jobs for Israelis and Palestinians alike and growing families forced to live generation upon generation in a single dwelling. Meanwhile the European Union and Arabs may build freely even in places where the Arabs are forbidden by the Oslo Accords but rules do not apply to the Arabs as the whole idea is to destroy Israel.

“For the Palestinians, it could include resuming full security cooperation with Israel, holding off seeking further international recognition and ending payments to families of Palestinians imprisoned for terrorist attacks. Arab states, particularly Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, could add their own commitments, like overflights by Israeli passenger planes, visas for business people and telecommunications links.”

Note the difference; Israel surrenders actual concrete items and actual ground while the Palestinians only are required to end payments to terrorist’s families who are imprisoned. What about those who died in their terror attack, do they still pay those families, not to mention they will simply rename these payments and continue them while claiming they have ended. We can hear Abbas now; we have ended the payments to the families of terrorists while in reality they now receive monthly patriotism reward payments for their families’ contribution to the greater effort. In the end, there will be one small item which Abbas just cannot agree unless the item is included. Then the pressure starts on Israel and as Netanyahu slowly concedes, Abbas hints, suggests the advantage, requests, then says he will walk unless this additional item is included and the final request is something he recently promised the Arab world. According to Abbas and his latest stand, he explained, “We won’t relinquish the ‘right of return’.” This is the one demand which Mahmoud Abbas knows that Israel cannot accept as it would mean many millions, anywhere from four or five million to uncountable as every Syrian refugee in any camp would probably claim to be of Palestinian decent just to be in Israel for a better life plus all the Hezballah, IRGC, Islamic State and other Islamic groups flooding Israel with possibly twenty million Arab refugees with potentially three-quarters of them being terrorist plants specially sent to destroy Israel.

Here is where a problem just might creep into the whole equation. Let us start with a little historic story. Once upon a time, there was an America President and his Secretary of State where the Secretary of State once stated she thought of the Palestinians as the black slaves and the Israelis the plantation owners. They believed they had the solution, the grand solution by which the Palestinians would have the opportunity to prove their desire to found a state and actually make a go of it and the Israelis could see the progress and realize they should trust the Palestinians with the rest of what the world believes is legally their land. They gave Israel guarantees and assurances that everything would be protected by the United States and if anything were to go awry, then Israel and the United States would repair the damage together and put things back to the way they were. This was the great experiment where nothing could go wrong, Prime Minister Sharon fell for President George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice and their promises and grand solution, and Gaza was given over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians to build their state. Within two years, Hamas took control of Gaza in a coup and apparently that was not something going awry as the United States did nothing to return things to the way they were. Hopefully, Prime Minister Netanyahu recalls the worth of any United States promises and assurances that they will protect anything of Israel should things from their next grand scheme go wrong. Their guarantees are worthless, as worthless as every rocket and missile that Hamas and Islamic Jihad launch and every tunnel these terrorists dig is because of the guarantees given to Israel by an American President, one who the Israelis hailed as the most pro-Israel President ever, and now Trump has that same title and is coming with another grand plan where Israel makes concrete sacrifices and makes promises and hopes for peace while the world works through Trump’s inability to comprehend that he is being used as their tool to destroy Israel one step further.

 

So, let us look at the real story. President Trump is out to prove that he is the ultimate deal-maker and he will ply and pry at Israel forcing her to give him that precious deal proving his prowess and deal-making abilities. The team is mostly made up of amateurs with no experience or real depth of knowledge of the situation. Prime Minister Netanyahu had best tell them all about the grand Gaza deal and remind them how that turned out and the lack of American response to the emergency they created. But the truth is that the Europeans are the truthful ones as the European Union builds in Israeli territories Arab housing in order to erase as much of Israeli lands as they are able. The whole of world efforts since the promise to found a Jewish homeland has been to make such impossible. From the start the British along with Arab leaders forced Arabs to move into the Jewish designated areas while forbidding Jews from entering, even making the area all but completely closed during the Shoah. Since the founding of Israel, the efforts of the world have been to force Israel to exit as many strategic areas to the Arabs as frontal assaults from Arab armies failed in 1948-9, 1967 and 1973. President Obama all but presented Iran with nuclear weapons which would eventually be used against the United States knowing that they would also be used against Israel. This was an act which all but guarantees World War III, unless the world, especially Europe, realizes what is coming and acts preventively.

 

Abbas Gives Peace This Much of a Chance

The world has worked to destroy Israel since her inception and continued even after she became a fact on the ground. Likely the first act should the European Union build a time machine, they will send an assassin back to murder Lord Balfour before he turns ten just to be sure. For a modern day replica of what Israel faced, look no further than the Kurdish and their recent referendum. The Kurdish forces in Iraq and Syria are largely responsible for the destruction of the Islamic State in those two nations and now they are being ditched like old birdcage newspaper lining. The Zionists were fortunate to have some people in important places and with wealth to back their efforts with Lord Rothschild being one of the more prominent names. The Kurds in Iraq and Syria need to band together and tell the world that they have decided to establish Kurdistan as they were promised would happen after World War I and simply define their desired borders and prepare to defend them. Israel should be the first nation to recognize such an effort and be there to assist their defense if requested. Israel received such assistance on a person-by-person basis as soldiers from World War II such as Colonel Marcus volunteered to assist the Jewish efforts. The world still thinks that they will destroy Israel given sufficient time; the establishing of Kurdistan might just give the world more national homelands as others may follow such an effort. The Berbers in Northern Africa are another group deserving of their own lands once again as are numerous others. Instead of attempting to destroy indigenous peoples’ hopes, the world should celebrate such and a good start would be instead of trying to destroy Israel, how about freeing Tibet from Chinese occupation, or does that occupation not count. The United States was supposed to be about freedom, hope and against tyranny, when did that all change? Perhaps the time has come for the United States to return to her roots and allow others to return to their roots and even assist those denied such freedoms. But we ask too much and know this, too bad.

Saudis Could Push Abbas into Iranian Hands

 

The smell of the United States is all over the recent Saudi Arabian initiatives being executed by Riyadh in the Middle East. Just last week Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was called to Riyadh by the Saudi Royal Family for some emergency talks. While there he resigned his post giving a television interview soon after. In the broadcast, Hariri was attacking Iran and its Hezbollah proxy, and claiming that he would return to Lebanon in the coming days to formally submit his resignation to Lebanese President Michel Aoun. This was not completely outside his honest feelings but was not a normal act. Should Hariri remain in Lebanon for any extended period of time and remain at all active politically, he can expect to face the same end as his father, assassinated.

 

Now we hear that Mahmoud Abbas has been demanded by the Saudi Royal Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to accept the upcoming Trump peace proposal or resign. He was further instructed, or warned depending on your interpretation, to not seek the assistance or relations with Iran or any Iranian proxies. The Saudis expressed to Abbas, according to reports, their distrust, disfavor and distress over Saleh al-Arouri visiting Tehran in October. Arouri, a Hamas terror chief, was the Hamas signatory on a reconciliation deal with Abbas’s Fatah group signed in Cairo last month. The Saudis making him into an Iranian agent is an attempt to drive a wedge between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas using Iran as the issue. They are also giving Abbas a direct challenge, either you are with us, the Saudis and implied the United States, or you are with them, Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and implied the Russians. This is hardball tactics and is being implemented ham-handedly. With Iran having already tendered generous offers of weapons, training and possibly manpower including volunteers to carry our suicide bombings inside Jerusalem and potentially Tel Aviv and other sensitive prime targets within Israel, Abbas being pressed now by the Saudis simply to choose, as the Saudis are not offering anything additional to what they already provide, implied here American support, and Abbas requiring what the Iranians are proffering will very likely choose Iran. Abbas is more likely to challenge the Saudi Royals and test President Trump and may very well bet that he is safer and better supported by the Iranians and prefer IRGC and al-Quds Brigade support to Saudi cash and as he knows the United States must talk with him to make any peace, and be willing to push President Trump to choose.

If, as we suspect, President Trump is behind this Saudi push to force choices to be made concerning Iran or Saudi support, he has miscalculated badly. This will only serve to push more influence to Iran and take it from the Saudi Royals. Saudi Arabia, despite its oil revenues, is currently somewhat cash strapped and not able to both buy arms and pay the bills of their member states who depend on their support for their existence such as Egypt, Lebanon and others while Iran, thanks to President Obama’s generous gifts in his attempt to make Iran the hegemonic Middle East Islamic power, had hundreds of millions of dollars which they plan on using to their greatest benefit and in attempts to surround Israel. They already own the southern half of Iraq including Mosul, thanks to Western imperial stupidity led by the British in their efforts to prevent the Kurdish People from realizing self-determination and their own nation state, as well as Syria and its Golan Heights border with Israel. Iran through Hezbollah pretty much control Lebanon and, with the Hariri resignation, will soon control the government squeezing out the moderates, Christians, non-Shia Muslims and other minorities. The pressure placed on Hariri, if that was what was the impetus for his resignation, has lost any hope for Lebanon to break free from Iraq and now has given the opportunity for IRGC forces to set up the planned Iranian base in southern Lebanon near the Israel border. The next targets in the Iranian plot to surround Israel, Jordan and the PA. With the Saudi Royals placing a choose now with no middle ground options to Abbas, he is very likely to call the Saudi’s bluff and see if the United States will abandon all hope of an Arab-Israeli peace.

 

Abbas knows that President Trump has salivated over the opportunity to manage to end the Arab-Israeli conflict, or at least the Palestinian side of this conflict, as he has already laid down the gauntlet and taken on that quest. President Trump sees himself as the ultimate deal-maker and just the person to hammer out an agreement; after all, as he puts it, he has made billion dollar deals in New York City and, to quote a show tune, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you, New York, New York.” Unfortunately, if what has leaked is true and President Trump is designing a peace offering around the “Two-State Solution of two states for two peoples living side by side in peace and security,” we have all been there, rejected that by Abbas and as long as President Trump insists that the Jews rule their own state, the deal is dead on arrival. That is a fact which Abbas has made very clear on numerous occasions. But as long as President Trump is going to attempt to make a peace proposal, then he is going to have to meet with Abbas or the problems will remain and the violence continue which would make for a horrific resulting peace. That means that Abbas and not the Saudi Royals is sitting in the driver’s seat and controlling the vehicle and if the Saudis demand Abbas choose his preferable passengers, his preferred partners, they had best sweeten their deal and stop making threats as the Iranians are out bribing people to buy their friendship. In the Middle East, you are my friend as long as you can and are empowering me and right now, the Iranians are offering to empower Abbas while the Saudis are threatening to cut him off. Which way would you choose? Here is the lands of crazy friends where Sunni and Shiite are considered impossible bedfellows you have Sunni Hamas in bed with Shiite Iran and Turkey playing all sides against the middle, that will not end well for Erdogan at some point, and Iraq dancing completely to the Iranian tune yet the only force to oppose them are the Kurdish militias which would be far stronger together defending their own lands yet the Sunnis are opposing their efforts simply because they are not true Arabs, actually not Arab at all.

 

The Middle East is currently in flux and everything and everyone is ready to jump ship and seek a more affluent and generous benefactor. Turkey is seeking some route whereby they become the renewed Ottoman Caliphate with much of Syria and Iraq as their territory, which are also the lands where the Kurdish People are found which explain why Erdogan has the Turkish forces engaged in Syria fighting the Kurds and calling them Islamic State. Egypt is seeking to be left alone except for their need for funds as their economy is stuck in the mire and going nowhere and even doing that slowly. The other two powers are Iraq and Saudi Arabia who are fighting one another in Yemen. The Saudis are presumably aligned with the United States and with Rex Tillerson holding the office of Secretary of State; this gives the Saudis a friend advising the White House. The Iranians no longer have an ally in Washington, are content with having Russia as their friend of the moment, and are seeking more than simply control of the Middle East and an end to Israel. While the Saudis are attempting to hold on to the status quo and are not acting proactively, they very well may find themselves out of the picture perceived as being weak. On the other hand, the Iranians appear strong and willing to do whatever must be done to empower the people of the Middle East and this fact may allow them to gain the support of the Arab Middle East despite their being Persians and not actual Arabs.

 

If the United States plans to prevent Iran from spreading their tentacles into Europe, the time to act is immediately. Iran has made great strides in their trade relations and contracts with European countries, France and Germany in particular. Should Iran manage to gain the upper hand with most of the Islamic communities in Europe, we could see them start to take control over governments in Europe starting with France and Germany. What everybody need understand and understand now is that Iran intends to rule the world and will take as long as required in order to do so. They played President Obama like a Fender Stratocaster guitar. They realized his time was limited and he was desperate to make a deal and willing to buy their cooperation. That is why the Iran nuclear deal gives Iran an all but immediate route to nuclear weapons, gave Iran boatloads (actually plane loads) of cash and provided them with a secret deal on the side, which has been kept a deep dark secret. Iran is poised to make a start at control of much of the Middle East, placing a foothold in the Horn of Africa, making inroads in Europe and generally extending their control to a point where they are on the threshold of a breakout from which only three nations in the Western hemisphere would be standing in their way, Russia, the United States and, of course, Israel. Of the three, the only one recognizing this threat and calling it out to the world are the Israelis. The question now is will anybody even listen to the Israeli warnings and even should they hear it, would they heed it and take any actions. We fear the answer to all those queries is the same resounding “No.” The world is following a familiar path where empires fall and evils run amuck.

The Only Eventual Solution in the Holy Lands

 

There will be soon another push from various sources likely in response to threats from Hamas and pleas from Mahmoud Abbas and others from the Palestinian Authority (PA) claiming that the only path which will lead to peace is the two state solution. They will point to the “Clinton Plan” that calls for the redividing of Jerusalem including surrendering all of the Temple Mount and the Old City and a return to the pre Six Day War lines or borders. This is the truest path to the next Arab Israeli war. Once such has been imposed, the PA will have direct line of sight targeting of the central coastal regions of Israel. This will allow spotters to give direct line of fire adjustments for the rockets and mortar fired by PA security forces and terrorists (see image below). Such attacks will slowly escalate over time as will sniper fire targeting Israelis in Jerusalem and people residing too close to the new boundaries. This will include shooting at motorists on some Israeli main highways (see image below). These are simply a few of the new terrorist opportunities such a border would permit. Many farmers in the Galilee will also find they have become targets working their fields. Such an imposition of this solution would also make hundreds of thousands of Israelis currently residing in Area C, the area Oslo designated to be an Israeli area which propaganda has erased from the world’s memory, which would place an undue strain on the Israeli economy. Finally, this would start a new propaganda campaign declaring the dream of Zionism dead rubbing every Zionist’s face in the loss of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount as well as Hevron, Shechem, Jericho, Bet El and the rest of Judea and Samaria and claiming that these areas will never be part of Israel. This will be a targeted campaign which will not be capable of having the desired result as the Jewish People have already waited over two thousand years, a little longer will not end the dream, it will only serve as a challenge.

Then, after a couple of years, when the PA militarizes, the reaction by the world which promised to monitor and prevent the Palestinians from establishing a military will be to moan about being helpless to act upon an established fact. There is a good reason why they will not try to prevent such an inevitability, they will be drooling at the opportunity to sell the Palestinian state tanks, armored personnel carriers, jet fighters and other heavy weapons. Once their exists a well armed Palestinian Army and Air Force, then they will invite the Iranians or Egyptians, Saudis or other Arab nation or nations to join in supposed military maneuvers, all in the name of peaceful coexistence. We will give you three guesses what would happen next. There may not be a war instantly on the first time they hold such maneuvers. The Palestinian leadership would use any time they actually managed to hold these maneuvers without any shells landing inside Israel for propaganda claiming that the Israelis are just a bunch of nervous nellies imagining all kinds of scenarios when actually it has always been the Jews who started the wars. The European Union, their member nations, the United Nations, the Arab world, the Iranians, the Turkish government and who knows who else will all clasp their hands and agree with the Palestinians. But eventually one of these war games would accidentally cross into Israel and if they found Israel unprepared, they would immediately shell central Israel and Tel Aviv in particular and turn their accidental encroachment into the next Arab Israeli war to annihilate the Zionist Entity and murder every Jew in the process.

 

Many will point to the presumed fact that just as it was when Oslo Accords were signed, the United States would have Israel’s back. There, no problem as the United States would step in and save the day. Now for the cold, wet towel on that thought. First thing is the main American air base in the Middle East is in Turkey. Guess that air wing would be grounded, as Turkey would demand that no flights from their nation be used to help Israel. The naval airbase in Qatar would similarly be requested not to interfere, as would any United States forces in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Yemen and so on. Should the Sixth Fleet be on operations in the Atlantic Ocean and the Fifth Fleet assisting operations in the eastern Indian Ocean, it could take the United States Naval fleets as much as a week or two to get within operational range. And then again, that is all assuming the United States would care to assist anyways.

 

Just for argument’s sake, let us look at another possibility and the repercussions which would result. President Donald Trump will not be President forever, to which many people will cheer while others would sarcastically ask, why not? Eventually, likely sooner than later, another leftist Democrat will be elected as President and the Democrats might even control one, if not both, houses of Congress, exactly the situation President Barack Obama had the first two years of his two terms. For argument’s sake once again, let us presume that Hillary Clinton ran again and somehow managed to be victorious and became the United States first woman President. Even were it not Hillary Clinton and were, say Keith Ellison, Beto O’Rourke, Zoe Lofgren or Jim Moran, the four Democrats who voted against emergency financing for the Israel Iron Dome anti-missile which is a purely defensive weapon which saved countless Israeli civilian lives during the war with Hamas who fired their rockets at civilian targets such as Sederot and Tel Aviv. Any one of these Democrats if elected President, and three of them, say, Keith Ellison, Beto O’Rourke and Jim Moran are ranking Democrats in their power structure, then Israel would at best be a back burner issue as far as support. Such a development could leave Israel without United States funding, which we believe would not entirely be a problem as Israel should wean herself from this less than vitally needed funding. Such a move would serve Israel well and allow her better standing in the United States by not causing any financial difficulties, and the United States is having financial difficulties. But that would only be part of the problem.

 

The United States turning from Israel would mean Israel would also need to revoke her membership in the United Nations as without the United States veto in the Security Council Israel would face serious denunciations from the Security Council which could easily include sanctions and potentially, if Israel could not find a new defender, military threats from United Nations sanctions. We might suggest China unless they enlarge the numbers of permanent members with veto powers, then perhaps one from South America or India or who knows. Eventually, Israel will be cut off by the United States and it is coming sooner rather than later, honest. So, what exactly should Israel be concerned with other than finding another champion on the United Nations Security Council permanent membership with Veto powers. Should they ever take away permanent members veto powers, then Israel will be on her own and without a veto-wielding member holding any threats over her head. But Israel will need to do more than court new friends and allies.

 

The one item the United States promised Israel, when they used excessive persuasion and just a little bit of pressure to have Israel end her Lavi fighter program, was to replace their domestic fighter program with American provided air power. Should, correction, when Israel loses her United States air power along with this essential ally, what will she do for air power? As some may guess, or know, we believe that Israel would be well served to end her reliance on the United States for financial aid and provider of air power and instead take three percent of her GDP, or possibly five percent of her GDP and invest in making her own weaponry, all of her weaponry and munitions. Jets should be high on that list so she can make them with the range and power necessary to project power sufficiently at any distance required. Israeli requirements for air superiority do not match United States designs exactly in many differing specifications, range being the most crucial. Some might remember the farcical revelations made by different officials from the Administration of President Obama even to include the President himself disrupting Israeli attempts to find an alternate landing airstrip should they require striking Iran. Current Israeli air power from the United States does not have the range to provide time on target required. That could be addressed only providing Israel was to design her own aircraft and produce them domestically.

 

Lavi the Lost Dream

Lavi the Lost Dream

 

People will ask whether Israel would be capable of producing an aircraft on a level close to what the United States can provide. The first part of the answer is that even though the United States provides the aircraft, Israel installs their own avionics and often makes modifications to the armaments and target acquisition systems. Israel has two companies, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Elbit Systems Ltd plus support companies such as BlueBird Aero Systems and Beit Shemesh Engines, some combination of these could produce the required parts, airframes, propulsion and all the other required systems for a modern fighter, and this time it would match the Israeli requirements exactly. But back to the initial promise for the “Promised Lands.” Below is a map representing the boundaries as placed into the Bible from Numbers 34:1-12 and Ezekiel 47:13-20 and need to apologize that finding one from any of the descriptions given in Genesis proved problematic.

 

Promised Land Boundaries

Promised Land Boundaries

 

The other descriptions can be found describing the lands to Abraham (Genesis 15:18-21), then confirmed to his son Isaac (Genesis 26:3), and then to Isaac’s son Jacob (Genesis 28:13) and finally in (Exodus 23:31) and again in (Numbers 34:1-12) as they were leaving Egypt and finally in (Deuteronomy 1:8 and 19:8-9). Despite each description differing in scope or in depth of the definition, there can be little doubt that the eastern border was along the Jordan River. Despite this, the world appears intent on squeezing the Jews out of as much land as possible in their attempt to make Israel indefensible. We can only hope they fail and live up to their promises made from the Balfour Declaration through to the inclusion of the Mandates in Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, and these are all enforceable under international law and in the world courts.
