Israeli Democracy Under Siege

 

The fact that Israel is a parliamentary democratic state is beyond debate. The problem is that leftist anti-Zionist and often both anti-Israel and anti-Semitic political forces supported by foreign interests and financing call that democracy into question whenever Israel does not follow these foreign demands. These efforts were all too often supported by the Israeli Supreme Court which had an identical political leftist ideology. This is a situation unique amongst the governments of the world as in no other nation are NGO’s financed by foreign governments and permitted to claim that they represent the target nation regardless of their financial support. Israel has attempted to pass legislation demanding that any NGO receiving over half of their funding from foreign sources register themselves as foreign agencies and not pretend that they are grassroots Israeli interests. Many of these NGO’s take on names which imply that they are purely Israeli when they most definitely are anything but that. J-Street pretends to be a pro-Israel NGO while opposing the elected government. The New Israel Fund is almost totally financed out of Europe and the Americas and in turn finances numerous other NGO’s claiming they are purely Israeli as they get their funding from the New Israel Fund which acts as a clearinghouse for these efforts. Each time Israel has attempted to address this issue, these NGO’s, the European Union and numerous European nations scream that Israel is destroying its Democracy and becoming a religious totalitarian regime. What they really mean is that their pet NGO’s will be revealed for what they are, foreign lobbyists attempting to steer Israel in the desired direction of numerous foreign interests whose last interest is the health, well-being and future of the Jewish State.

 

Speaking to this problem, Eytan Meir, the director of external relations at Im Tirtzu, proclaimed, “Rather than respecting the wishes of the Israeli public to determine their own policy at the ballot box, foreign governments are bypassing the democratic process by funding organizations that work to change the country from within. There is no parallel to this phenomenon in the democratic world and this is how we have a situation in which millions of European dollars pour into radical NGOs that work to promote the BDS movement.” One may ask, if not the good of Israel, what is it that these foreign interests are attempting to foist upon the Jewish State? Their main claim is that they are supporting the Israeli democracy defending it against those interests who desire to retain the Jewishness of Israel. What they mean by that is they are pressing for a bi-national state where the Palestinian Arabs, instead of being ruled by their respective governance, the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria and Hamas in Gaza, are instead granted full citizenship in Israel along with five or so million Palestinian Arab refugees. One might ask why they would demand such a thing, and the answer is an easy one. They are attempting to demand that the Jews in Israel become a minority and that the Arabs take control of the region thus ending the Jewish State. They are abhorred that the Jews are currently ruling themselves and desire to be rid of the Jews entirely. They know that once the Arabs are given control of the region of Israel that they will soon thereafter be rid of the Jews one way or another. We know already that half of the Jews in Israel are refugees or their children are from the Arab world and have absolutely no possibility of returning to Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Algeria and the other places from which they were dispossessed. On the other hand, those who are directly from the numerous nations of Europe equally would be refused return and those from the United States and Canada whose citizenship has expired would also have nowhere to turn. The Jews of Israel would be facing the exact situation which they faced under the Nazis when in early 1939 an unidentified immigration agent was asked how many Jews would be allowed in Canada after the war. He replied, “None is too many.” This was also the answer to the Jews during their desperate times when they were being rounded up and sent to the Concentration Camps and every nation they turned to had the basic answer that none was too many.

 

This is the target aim of these NGO’s and their foreign financiers, the end of Israel as the Jewish State and, as a consequence, the end of the Jewish People as many have noted that should Israel fail, the Jews would within fifty years become so small a population that they would be all but extinct. This should not come as any surprise as anti-Semitism in Europe and in Canada as well as the United States and throughout the rest of the world has been on the rise for the past fifty years. If it were not for the advantages of the discoveries and inventiveness of Israeli society, many more nations would join the Arab boycott of Israel. The problem is they desire to have the software, medical advances, agricultural advances and the various other things which come from Israel but wish to have it without Israel being the Jewish State. These interests know that if they are able to force Israel back to the pre-Six Day War borders that Israel would be vulnerable to attack and as Israel no longer has a military advantage as great as it was in 1967, that Israel would be in grave danger. This is even more obvious when one looks at the encroachment of Iran into Syria and Lebanon and their insistence that they will remove Israel calling it a tumor, a cancer and other derogatory names all implying it as a disease. The Iranian leadership claims that Israel and the Jews are to blame for all the wars everywhere in the world claiming that the Jews make obscene profits from these wars and this is why they are behind all the wars. Iran is a threat beyond Israel and would be free to invade Europe once they cemented their conquests they plan for the Middle East. Of course, this threat does not matter as long as along the way the Jews are wiped out from Israel. This is part of why so many European governments support so many NGO’s and groups which promote the BDS Movement attempting to economically strangle Israel without being overt in the process.

 

This brings us to the greatest false claim of the anti-Israel movements, especially the BDS Movement. These groups claim they are protecting the interests and economic well-being of the Palestinian Arabs. One example of the falsity of these claims comes from the moving of the SodaStream factory from the Shomron where it employed numerous Arabs alongside of Jews to within the Green Line where they had to let their Arab employees go, as they are unable to travel into Israel. On this subject, we quote Mendi Safadi, who heads the Safadi Center for International Diplomacy, Research, Public Relations and Human Rights advised a reality check stating, “Every Palestinian who works in Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria earns around $1,200 per month while the Palestinian minimum wage is $250 per month. When a factory closes in Judea and Samaria, 80% of the workers are Palestinians and they lose their jobs, as was the case with Soda Stream.” The BDS Movement does nothing to assist Palestinian Arabs and in fact damages many of them removing their ability to make a decent wage. But this may actually be another part of their desire to cause problems for Israel. When these people lose their employment in an Israeli company, they may eventually get to the point where their best hope to have a decent life is to turn to terrorism which is the highest paying profession for the Palestinian Arabs. This is known as ‘Pay to Slay” and provides a permanent income for the family of any Palestinian Arab or even Israeli Arab who murders Jews; the more Jews they murder, the higher the family is rewarded. Further, if the IDF tears down their house, the Palestinian Authority will build them a new one in the same place. There have been terrorists who admitted that the reason they committed their acts of terror was for the cash payments and they did not care if they died as they would go to heaven and their family would be taken care of.

 

Results of Pay to Slay is Dead Israelis Including the Children

Now we would like to address a fallacy which is so often repeated that it has become fact for all too many people. The fallacy is that Israel prevents the Palestinian Arabs from having elections and does not allow them to vote in Israeli election in which they have a right to vote because Israel occupies them. First, let us talk about Gaza. Israel pulled everything and everyone out of Gaza in 2005 and has had no interference except in response to being attacked by Hamas and other terrorists from Gaza. Gaza was given over to the Palestinian Authority who lost it to Hamas in a 2007 coup. After Hamas, a universally recognized terrorist group, assumed rule in Gaza, this was when Israel imposed a blockade which even the United Nations recognized as legal. Aid still flows into Gaza in the form of dozens of tractor-trailers each day which carry everything from food to building supplies and medicines. Hamas takes everything and doles it out through friends who are getting very wealthy. They retain the building supplies and use them to build tunnels into Israel, bunkers within Gaza and fortified positions for their rocket launchers. Hamas has a dictatorship and their upper echelons choose who will govern. They, for all intents and purposes, are their own nation completely independent of Israel and allowing them to vote in Israeli elections would be the same as Taiwan allowing mainland Chinese to vote in their elections, though the numbers are somewhat different. Now for the Palestinian Authority (PA) which occupies Israel lands west of the Jordan River in parts of Judea and Samaria, or are people going to claim that Judea is not Jewish. They also are independent of Israel and in Area A, the area where the PA is in total control, they are completely ruled by Mahmoud Abbas and his government. Area B is also under PA civil control and is under mutual PA and Israeli security control and is the region where any border, were one to be agreed upon, would be drawn. Area C, according to the Oslo Accords, is under complete Israeli control and was intended to be annexed completely by Israel once a peace was reached along with whatever parts of Area B were to become part of Israel. The idea that Israel must return to the pre-Six Day War borders is an idea supported by the Muslim and Arab worlds and adopted heartedly by Europe and has become another lie taken as fact. People really need to read the agreements starting with the San Remo Conference and the rest after World War I, that is the World War before any Holocaust and when Israel was proposed and its border set in the east as the Jordan River. Mahmoud Abbas is in thirteenth year of his five-year term and is in no hurry to hold elections. The Arabs under the PA would vote in those elections if only Abbas was not fearing that he would not live very long if he were to lose the election, which he would.

 

The problem is that there is no heir apparent should Abbas, who is over 80 and in very delicate health, drop dead. When he does finally leave the mortal coil, there is going to be a struggle between the numerous separate parties on who will replace him and the ensuing potential for violence will probably translate into a multi-faceted civil struggle where the people will pay the highest price. When this violence breaks out, we predict that the European Union, United Nations and all too many nations are going to warn Israel against interfering while blaming the violence upon Israel. Holding contradictory positions when it comes to Israel is one of the balancing acts which is popular in many places of our world. Eventually, Israel will be forced to intervene and then set up some form of governance within the territories so the Arabs can actually have somewhat normative lives. The one solution which has been proposed which would permit for the Arabs to finally have governance which does not steal them blind has been setting each small region surrounding the numerous cities and towns under their own governments often led by the largest family in that region. This was how they were ruled before the British left and the Arab armies of six Arab nations invaded to try to wipe out the Jews. When they left the region, they placed the Mufti of Jerusalem to form some form of local governance with Jordan ruling the area in Judea and Samaria, the lands they illegally occupied, and Egypt with Gaza which they ruled and occupied illegally. One has to go back to the League of Nations Mandates which are enforceable under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, and then they would realize that Gaza actually belongs to Israel and everything west of the Jordan River was to belong to Israel and Arab nations illegally occupying those areas did not alter that despite what the world loves to think. Once Israel has settled the squabbles and set up a workable form of governing for the Arabs, they will probably be granted legal resident alien status while Israel roots out the last of the terrorists. The officers and security leaders from the PA will probably be exiled and may find themselves back in Tunis, Tunisia. This time they will not be permitted to return no matter what the world demands. With the Arabs of the Shomron under stable governance which is more interested in their welfare than lining their pockets, this will be even more true as Israel will have annexed these lands and be the overseeing force, then they and Israel can open factories and other infrastructure and their lives will improve greatly. Even the Europeans will have to end their incessant screaming for the Arab plight to be addressed and blaming Israel despite Israel not having direct control. Israel will then have indirect control and the leadership of the numerous Arab communities will have to have clean governance otherwise Israel might decide to replace them and place somebody else in charge of running the area. Israel will provide all of the necessary infrastructure and that in and of itself will be a great benefit. Then the only problem will be Gaza which is a terrorist sanctuary at present. Any terrorism which emanates from the former PA region will result in the terrorist and their immediate family being exiled from Israel and not permitted to return under pain of death for the one who committed the terrorist act, or some equally undesirable result.

 

Then with Gaza, should they continue to export terror attacks and sending rockets into Israel, it will not take long before Israel cleans out the terrorist leadership and infrastructure from Gaza and either make a deal with Egypt where they resume their control of the region or Israel take control of Gaza and run the area until it can be turned back to the people of Gaza to elect their own government with the one proviso, no terrorism unless they desire Israel to have to return, something which is always unpleasant to have to endure. The other threat is in the north with Hezballah which has almost taken over the Lebanese government and military. Hezballah is a direct actor under the command of Iran. This makes Iran directly responsible for any attacks Hezballah might make upon Israel. Israel knows that once the areas of Judea and Samaria are cleared of terrorist influences and the Arabs have decent governments ruling them and their lives improve, that front will be taken off the threat board leaving mainly Hamas and Hezballah, both direct agents of Iran. This makes the solution to these two obvious, let Iran know that they will be held directly responsible for any and all attacks from either entity. This will put the onus on Iran to keep Hamas and Hezballah as well as the minor operatives such as Islamic Jihad, also controlled by Iran, in check or face possible retaliation from Israel. This will hopefully serve as sufficient a threat to prevent further terrorist activities from these groups and the same threat can be applied to Syria which has also become another pawn of Iran as well as Iraq. For those seeking to find the real threat over the Middle East need look no further than the nation which has been sweeping across the Middle East taking over such nations’ governments as Iraq, Syria, Yemen and soon Lebanon while controlling terrorist groups of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezballah plus their military arm for international actions the IRGC. Iran’s leaders have often made mention that they see themselves as the renewed Persian Empire and as such the rightful rulers of the world, just as Cyrus declared that he ruled when he swept across the Middle East, North Africa and into Europe as far as Greece. Iran has also, beyond threatening Israel, threatened to take control of the Saudi Arabian oil fields, Mecca and Medina as well as the United States. But the Europeans see Iran as money of which they can partake for as long at it lasts and thus refuse to join the United States in sanctioning Iran and have even set up get-arounds for companies to trade with Iran and receive their payments through a third company so as to not be targeted by the United States sanctions. So, Iran is the darling of Europe for as long as the cash flows while Israel is the devil incarnate but they still desire the developments and discoveries which come from Israel.

Commentary on the Twin Perils, Iran and Palestine

 

We recently read Professor Louis René Beres’s article Twin perils for Israel: Iranian nuclear weapons and “Palestine” and thought perhaps we might discuss what was presented. Professor Beres wrote in his normal manner with deep thought and high reference to numerous experts and historical exposes on warfare and other pertinent subjects. There was also the almost obligatory reference to the difference between the principal adversaries and whether they are presumably rational, irrational, or mad. We figured we would relate that which we were able to discern from the article interspersed with our own ideas on this subject. We hope we can do Professor Beres, his article and thoughts justice.

 

One of the main ideas we caught was Israeli planners in the IDF, intelligence and political leadership need to weigh the threats collectively and assign the sum and realize that their collective threat could far surpass their individual parts. Quite true just as engaging two people in a fight is far more difficult than taking each one at a time on separate days, or preferably weeks. Three, four or even more starts to reach into the multiple risks and more can reach exponential level of additional risks. Professor Beres is knowledgeable and has very deep and good counsel with much of it aimed at the leadership of the IDF and intelligence community. This was where we started to take a diverging path from the good professor. Where his advice may well be very wise and even sagely, whether or not it would be of use to the current IDF command could be debated. If we have judged these leaders fairly, few of them came from infantry combat units and they are too often subjected to second-guessing by legal teams of lawyers well versed in the international rules of warfare. These legal analysts strictly interpret these guidelines and follow them to the very last letter of the law and when in doubt, they countermand orders preventing actions which could end conflicts faster and even potentially prevent future conflicts. Then there have been instances where the Israeli Supreme Court has countermanded orders given during times of war. With such strictly enforced guidelines and oversight of their every act and order, it is a wonder that the IDF manages to operate at all. The IDF is cast by military experts of the Western World, as being the most moral army in the world setting a standard well beyond what other militaries even envisage attaining in their conflicts. Below is a presentation by Colonel Richard Kemp who gave this lecture at MIFF Forum in Stavanger September 24, 2016. Colonel Kemp has given testimonies before the Human Right Commission as well as the General Assembly of the United Nations. His record with the British military in Special Forces and as a Unit on through Brigade Commander in Afghanistan and Iraq makes his testimony both valid and given from the position of an expert.

 

 

Because of the restrictions imposed by legal and moral restraints, the IDF often is prevented from taking some of the exact precautions prescribed by Professor Beres. Still, the coming predicaments which Israel might be facing are exactly what Professor Beres has postulated. Even though, perhaps it is time to examine the perils of the article. Fortunately, we hopefully will never realize one-half of the presumed threat, the State of Palestine. It is to be hoped and prayed for that even the most leftist liberal leadership have finally realized that an independent Palestinian State would be tantamount to suicide for Israel. Gaza and Southern Lebanon have proven beyond any further doubt that any lands surrendered by Israel immediately, or soon thereafter, become terrorist cesspools used to launch attacks through rockets or tunnels into Israel. There is but one question remaining to finish the currently existing puzzle, where will Trump position himself on the Israeli-Arab fourteen-hundred-year on again off again and finally on again conflict. The recent March 13 meeting in the White House with twenty nations including many Sunni Arab countries and Israel may have much to tell and potential effect on where Trump comes to rest. With the United Nations, European Union, numerous amongst the European nations, Qatar, the United States National Security Council (NSC) staff and the Department of State all having input while it is quite probable that President Trump has only requested a report and had not attended the entire meeting leaving the particulars along with the fighting, arguing, disputing, lying, abuses, ridicules, insults and general ruckus which was sure to break out, and that all before the Israeli representatives even spoke a word. There was a single bright spot in the White House confab, the PLO and Mahmoud Abbas rejected the invitation declaring President Trump unfit and far too partial to be a fair moderator between the Palestinians and Israel. Why not double down once more Mahmoud and really get Trump to hate you. Please, do keep it up.

 

As long as Israel retains military control and political ambiguity on the future of Judea and Samaria, then the threats from those areas will be hopefully mitigated. Should Israel do what is wise and annex the areas of Judea and Samaria and exile the PLO and leadership of both the Palestinian Authority and their security forces thus the Arabs being permitted to decide to sell their holdings and leave to start their lives over elsewhere, research has shown that anywhere from one-third to at least half of them would take advantage of such an opportunity. If Israel were to offer them a bonus to relocate, as they are the illegal immigrants, the estimates rise to two-thirds to three-quarters. The remainder could then be offered to remain as resident aliens for as long as they obey Israeli laws and should they or any member of their family participate in terrorism, they should understand that the entire family would be immediately deported. Once this has been made clear in as many languages as necessary, the remaining Palestinian residents should be given a final opportunity to take the financial offer to relocate. As far as Gaza, estimates have placed the estimated numbers of those desiring to relocate at seventy-five percent who also claim the only reason they remain is due to the threats made by Hamas should they attempt to leave. Apparently, the majority of the Arabs residing under the semiautonomous rule of the Palestinian Authority and even higher numbers residing under the direct rule of Hamas desire to restart their lives, most likely returning to their original home country where they have family and friends as well as a stronger governance which prefers caring for the people rather than spending the vast majority of funds to attack Israel bringing only more misery upon their people.

 

That leaves Iran which Professor Beres claims will easily become a nuclear power soon after the ten years agreement President Obama made with Iran. President Obama agreed to a ten year agreement, a Hudna, rather than a longer treaty potentially pushing Iran’s program theoretically even further into the future. Now, there are certain precepts in a Hudna which bare mention at this time. The Islamic side of such an agreement is required to live by the terms unless they feel their position is stronger than their enemy and thus they then break the Hudna and resume their hostilities. We firmly believed that the Iranians had atomic weapons which could probably be placed into warheads even before the negotiations had begun. There is even a fairly decent probability that Iran had miniaturized thermonuclear warheads capable of being placed atop missiles. Iran also had numerous different missiles fully capable of reaching Israel and beyond (see map below). The Iranians were probably stalling the nuclear agreement by extending negotiations as they produced more and more warheads before they would be required to stop production for a period of time. The actual agreement that President Obama likely reached with Iran was they would not use their nuclear arsenal until a set period, probably two to three years after he had vacated the White House. In this means, it would likely be his successor who would be blamed for any nuclear weapons use by Iran. There may have even been a sub-clause where Iran would wait for the next President had Hillary Clinton won the election. This will likely be another item blamed on Trump and the American deplorables who elected him, at least on social media, that is. Professor Beres is completely right when listing Iran as a great peril. They are already such if we are even partially correct. Even if they have not perfected nuclear weapons, a highly doubtful concept as they have very intelligent and well-trained and highly educated physicists and nuclear scientists and have been running several levels of centrifuges for quite some time before the treaty was reached, plenty sufficient to produce weapons of any sort they choose. But the world really does not care if Iran were to fire missiles at Israel regardless of the warheads. But what if Iran chose a different target than Israel, how much would the world care then?

The real problem is that Iran has others they also desire to subjugate other than Israel, who they desire to utterly destroy. Iran also has a great degree of hatred for Saudi Arabia, the Sunni giant in the Iranian mindset. Iran has all but encircled Saudi Arabia much as they are close to doing to Israel. For Israel they only need Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, another reason Israel cannot allow a Palestinian State as Iran would become their new best friend and place troops and weapons at their command to use against Israel as part of a concerted effort which would include Hamas in Gaza, Hezballah in Lebanon and Syria with IRGC troops engaging from the Golan Heights. With Saudi Arabia, they have Iraq, Qatar, Yemen and would probably also like to add Jordan, Kuwait, UAE and Oman to go with Qatar which could be a staging area for Iranian forward troops. The Iranians probably would prefer to take out Saudi Arabia before Israel simply because tactics dictate taking the weaker target out first, and even more so when it would provide staging areas and additional resources, such as captured weapons systems. Saudi Arabia has airbases in the northwest which have a close proximity to the Israeli border and would also be very useful should Iran desire taking out Egypt later on. The real problem which Professor Beres never did get to cover is the eventual intentions of Iran in the longest term. Iran has an initial desire to become the leader of all Islam and making Shia Islam the predominant form in the world through defeating the leaders of the most prominent Sunni countries which include Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Pakistan for starters. They already have a fair amount of control in Iraq and Afghanistan. Once they have conquered the Muslim World, their next target is the rest of the world starting with Europe. Iran also has a visceral desire to strike Russia but that will wait until after Russia has provided them the backing they need to take over the Muslim world and then Europe, then Iran will likely turn their attention to Russia. Where would Israel fit into their schedule, the secret for Israel is to prevent the first set of targets such that Iran never reaches the point where Israel is the next target. This may have been in the back of Professor Beres mind in writing his critique.

Three Weeks Could Produce Obama Surprise of the Week

 

One must first broaden their horizons to play at this sick little game. Remember that President Obama still has a little over three weeks left and he still has his pen even if it is too late for his phone to help. This all depends on what legacy President Obama believes he is setting, not what legacy he is actually achieving. When one allows their vengeful and oh so petty side to overrule all sense of propriety so many things become possible. One could see crippling the incoming President with such a mountain of impending disasters that he will waste his first year putting out fires and rescuing lost causes. President Obama has taken a pass at the United Nations Security Council all while pushing for a resolution to punish those uppity Jews otherwise known as Israel. He has all but eliminated any future the United States and Canada, as he was working with Canadian leftist Prime Minister Trudeau, drilling or mining for precious natural resources leaving almost the entire Arctic region for the Russians to explore and drain of everything he claimed to have rescued from the greedy hands of American capitalists. There are so many other fronts where he could even create calamities and disasters beyond the pale and since he is surrounded by sufficiently bright minds, nothing we add here will be giving them any ideas they already have not thought about, so no damage looking around and seeing what is the potential for mischief.

 

President Obama may not be actually capable of declaring war as that is reserved for Congress, but why would that stop him now, as he could provoke a state of war with Russia or China or Israel. President Obama has a long list of those who have not bowed to his preeminence, that is when he was not bowing to theirs (see images below). Protocols are one thing; bowing to the point of submission is completely different. President Obama entered office with little knowledge as to the actual importance of the office he was to hold. He differed to nearly every leader he met initially apparently believing it was polite. It was submissive and his actions afterwards proved that perception to be most accurate. Still, anybody receiving the Nobel Prize for Peace when still shuffling people around to complete their Cabinet and place their preferred people in Ambassadorships is bound to make anybody’s head spin giddy with the feelings of the moment and to honestly believe that it was a sign that he would accomplish great things. Now President Obama finds himself with mere weeks left, the next President hostile to virtually everything he accomplished and no real legacy except as probably being the President with the most number of presumed accomplishments reversed in the first year of the following President’s administration. The real problem with much of President Obama’s presumed accomplishments is they were either passed with a veto proof majority in Congress willing to support everything he proposed and to fall at his feet when required. Still, he was unable to get his energy plans and the carbon tax and credit system passed (even the Democrats realized that would destroy the economy irreparably) and only got his healthcare system, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, Obamacare) passed without a single Republican vote making it an albatross around the neck of every Democrat legislator, retreated from Iraq while announcing a date American troops would all but desert Afghanistan leading to the disasters in Iraq, Afghanistan and largely Syria along with the birth of the Islamic State (not the Junior Varsity Obama labelled them but also a problem soon to meet a solution), started but did not finish a war in Libya leading to Syria redux, and generally underperformed. So, what to do to set things to right and gain something of a legacy?

President Obama took care of the first thing on his bucket list, revenge on Bibi Netanyahu and destroying any possibility for peace between Israel and the Arab world. This also set the stage for a potential war between the entire world and Israel. His Security Council abstaining after forcing the bringing to a vote a condemnatory piece of garbage against Israel while leaving the Palestinians not even required to make a statement about peace will make it a required necessity for Israel to retreat behind the Green Line or face isolation from the world. This piece of garbage is making her once again completely vulnerable to another massive Arab assault with genocidal intents just as happened in 1948 and again in 1967. Israel surviving those wars, and even thriving, that was only by the will of Hashem as both times the survival of Israel was the miracle. President Obama does not wish for Israel to thrive, survive or anything resembling existing and he has no desire for any space to be the Jewish homelands. His orders to abstain and forcing the bringing of this motion after the President elect worked to have it postponed was a bastardation of his powers and a vile show of hatred. What was done is done and the world will never allow it to be undone. The world was embarrassed and forced to rescind their United Nation General Assemble passing of a resolution declaring “Zionism is racism” begrudgingly. The Durban 2001 World Conference against Racism which carried the official title of the noble sounding long stretching string of words, “World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance,” chaired by the esteemed anti-Zionist, anti-Israel, anti-Semite then United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Therese Winifred Robinson. This conference has been celebrated repeatedly and will continue to be celebrated for as long as Israel remains the Jewish State and its target will never change. The initial conference devolved into such a vile seething hatred of Israel and Jews in general centered around the “Zionism is racism” theme. The United States joined Israel in walking out. Later reviews of the Durban Conference were boycotted by several western nations to no avail as when hate runs rampant, especially when centered on the Jews; it gains a life of its own but given time will not end with the Jews and always results in horrors beyond the initial targets. Read the Bible, ancient history and even recent history including World War II and whatever will be the result of the current hatreds infecting the Arab and much of the Muslim world and rapidly spreading through Europe and beyond. But this is actually not of President Obama’s making, he has simply acted as it conduit assisting its spread and facilitating the general infection of anti-Semitism throughout the world and even onto the American college campuses where it infects the future leaders of the United States and the world. This will likely be President Obama’s greatest legacy.

 

President Obama still has his vexation with Putin for ignoring the greatness of President Obama and for opposing his Syria policy, a policy few have been capable of identifying. President Obama had his retreat into oblivion red lines which Bashir al-Assad crossed again and again no matter how far back they were moved. If memory serves us, President Obama had to retreat his lines until Russian President Putin stepped in and offered a false deal which was graciously accepted. Unfortunately, President Obama has a strange way of showing gratitude, he plots to belittle and destroy which may explain why so few have rushed to his side in times when he could have used friends. Sure, those from the extreme left and Democrats who depended on his goodwill stood there but that was their greed and their disgrace. President Obama might still cause a confrontation in Syrian airspace testing the Russian demands that any actions be coordinated with Russia. What might be the result of American and Russian pilots engaging over Syria?

 

China also has made President Obama look impotent as they have challenged former United States allies. Already the Philippines have reconsidered their faith in their alliance and dependence on the promises of the United States for protection. President Obama has actually managed to chase an ally into the arms of the Chinese despite a multitude of signs that there was a problem needful of attention. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte delivered a number of ever increasingly vile, insulting, obscene and crude references and names referring directly to the United States President. Japan has for the first time since World War II decided to develop their own active military forces including a blue water navy and is even considering finalizing their development and manufacturing of nuclear weaponry. Consider the irony and what it must take for Japan to actually consider favorably becoming a nuclear armed nation. That is an accomplishment for which one should feel deep shame, but some amongst us appear incapable of shame, they simply continue bumbling along making everything they touch turn into disaster after disaster. Taiwan is following Japan’s lead and also considering arming themselves with everything within their technological limits. They too are considering arming with nuclear weaponry. What an accomplishment, not only making some excuse for a treaty, sorry, our mistake, Presidential Agreement between the P5+1 and Iran guaranteeing the Mullahs of Iran can arm themselves with nuclear armaments in approximately eight to ten or twelve years, nobody knows as the treaty appears to be worded differently for each copy, the Russians have one version, the Germans another which appears very similar to the French and British, the United States has the most strident restrictive against Iran version and then there is the Iranian version which appears to be variable, able to mean whatever they desire when they desire it. Once the Iranians arm with nuclear weapons, the Saudi Arabian Royals promise they will acquire nuclear arms (they have an agreement with Pakistan for nukes when they need as they financed the Pakistani nuclear development program), the Egyptians and Turkish leaders have intimated they too will go nuclear, and who knows who else in the Middle East might think having a few nuclear weapons in their pantry might prove useful. President Obama, the proliferation President who armed the world for Armageddon.

 

We have not gotten to Libya, the Sudan and the general mayhem which has slowly begun to encompass the entire area of MENA (Middle East and North Africa). Then there has been the economic malaise which affected not only the United States but much of Europe as well. Then there has been the flood of Muslims into Europe and the United States and with them increased murder, rape, and other criminal activity including sexual gang rapes and molesting which manifested itself on New Year’s Eve as well as at other festive events as well as increased terrorism. Some have intimated that these refugees consist of an inordinately high percentage of single males between the ages of mid-teen years to late thirties and early forties, exactly the makeup one would send to prepare for an invasion acting as a fifth front tearing Europe apart from within. This has brought on fears by many that the refugees are an invasion disguised as a refugee problem in need of a humanitarian solution but will soon produce an Islamic resurgence in Europe resulting in Islam finally conquering the continent. That could be one heck of a legacy.

 

There is still time for more mischief with President Obama’s main obsession, the destruction of Israel using the grievance mongering Palestinian cause as the weapon of choice. He could recognize an Arab state of Palestine and actually map out the recognized borders. There is still an opportunity for more resolutions from the Security Council even to include an enforceable Chapter Seven Resolution demanding that Israel remove almost a million Jews from Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem setting as the recognition of Palestine in all but actuality, or even go as far as having the United Nations Security Council establish the twenty-second Arab state. The latitude available to President Obama boggles the mind and Israel has the largest bullseye centered on them even to the point of establishing that Jerusalem is actually an Islamic Waqf and as such is forbidden from even becoming the Israeli capital city and push such through the United Nations Security Council. As long as President Obama and United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power design to work to Israel’s detriment, something both have shown a great propensity to accomplish driven by a particular and peculiar hatred for Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu and his government, they can abstain from any motion and know that the remainder of the Security Council will most gladly concur with anything which damages Israel. This alone could make for the greatest damage not only against Israel, but against Europe and eventually the world, the entire world. Damaging Israel will embolden the Arab world which could easily lead to a general war similar to the 1948 Arab war against Israel. Such a war will not end with Israel and the spread of that war beyond MENA to the rest of Africa, Europe, India and even beyond to Asia and across the waters to the United States. Even an isolationist President Trump would have no other play, his hand would be forced. The dangers over the next three weeks and three days are legion and the best that could happen is nothing, absolutely nothing. We should all pray for quiet, peace and quiet with no further surprises.
