Gaza Continues to Erupt Daily

The violent rioting which much of the world reported as ‘peaceful protests against Israeli oppression’ which began the last two weeks of March have abated in size but still gather sufficient numbers to cause concern for the security of the border every Friday. Of course the Western World’s newspapers only report on this situation in the fourth or fifth paragraph, assuming it is not completely edited out, while leading with such reports that ‘Israeli jets pounded Gaza’ or ‘Israeli Merkava Tanks target Gaza’ and contain news that Israel has blockaded Gaza as if this was a new development and not an action taken after Hamas violently took control of Gaza. Often they treat Gaza as if the Palestinian Authority (PA) were still ruling there and ignoring that the Gaza Government is made up of whomever Hamas chooses. They treat the violence as simply an inconvenience for Israel. Since the start of these riots, there have been two goals. The first and preferred goal is to breach the border with tens of thousands of Gazans armed with clubs, machete, steel rods and rifles and proceed to the closest Israeli town or kibbutz and start murdering Jews. The second is to burn down as much of the area surrounding Gaza forcing the Jews to leave the region so they can then make claims that Israel has abandoned these lands which the Arabs in Gaza need because they are overcrowded. Never mind that Gaza has large tracts of farmland, they claim they have the greatest density of population in the world and the United Nations acts as if this were true. They are aware that if they force the Jews from their homes, then the world will eventually force Israel into surrendering these lands and then the same tactic can be used to gain the next five miles onto Israel erasing Israel in stages. Below is a map of the fires started around Gaza by incendiary balloons, kites, birds and some even targeting using drones.

These fires completely wiped out an entire wheat harvest leaving numerous farmers without any crops to sell. The government is presumably granting the affected farmers bailouts for their losses, but we all know that this will drive many to give up half way through the red tape. Even those who manage to survive the endless forms and other demands by government bureaucrats, they still will not make nearly as much as their crops would have brought them. The wildlife reserves will eventually recover but there may be some endangered animals which will not survive this blatant attack on their habitats, yet not a single wildlife advocate dares criticize the fires set by Hamas because in leftist circles, as the Arabs are considered even more precious than the most endangered of animals. The forests almost need not be mentioned, as the reaction from the world will be that the trees will grow back and the Gazans’ right to be heard is worth a few thousand trees within Israeli forests. The Western World, especially the leftists, believes that any of their sacred principles become sacrificial sheep as long as it is the Arabs protesting against Israel and those Jews. They will still hold out to their idea that Israel has no right to take away the sacred Arab lands which have been declared a sacred Waqf which is nonnegotiable for all time. Their reasoning is impeccable. They claim that everything in history began in each area at the time it was conquered by the Arab forces. This means that nothing before around 630 A.D. actually is real. This is the Gregorian date for the start of the Islamic calendar. So, despite that, they claim that Noah was a Muslim; his existence is irrelevant as it predates the Islamic Calendar. The same can be said for Abraham and even Ishmael. Here is where things get rather interesting. Despite claiming their lineage through Ishmael, they consider Moses to be an Islamic prophet. Moses was not the product of the line of Ishmael, but it does not stop there. The Palestinian Arabs claim that Jesus of Nazareth was a Palestinian Arab. We are not making this up. When Jesus lived, the Arabs were still largely in the Mecca and Medina region worshiping their Moon Goddess whose name just happened to be Allah.


Allah was merely one of the idols in the Ka’aba in Mecca and was one of the idolatrous gods of Muhammad’s tribe though Allah was an important god as it represented the crescent moon

Allah was merely one of the idols in the Ka’aba in Mecca
and was one of the idolatrous gods of Muhammad’s tribe
though Allah was an important god
as it represented the crescent moon


The fact that Allah was merely one of the chief idols representing the crescent moon, this was the name chosen by Muhammad to be the god of his new religion hoping the familiar name would aid in finding converts. Note the original idol has its hand out as if to accept sacrifice. These sacrifices were often of a more grotesque nature of a blood sacrifice, often undesired children. In the days of idolatry, the form of abortion was to take the unwanted child and sacrifice it at the time of the crescent moon immediately after the new moon. This little fact is refuted by every Muslim and for obviously good reasons. Still, if the memory of the old customs of having your children sacrificed to Allah protecting you from hell, then this would be a possible motive and reason why so many Palestinian Mothers are so glad when their child becomes a martyr, not only will they now receive blood money from the Palestinian Authority or PLO but they are also indemnified against being sent to hell. But we are more interested at this time of the price exacted by the incendiary attacks against Israel.


These attacks have basically been a bombing campaign by alternative means. The most gruesome of these means has been using live birds to fly an oil soaked rag over the border and into Israel with the bird eventually succumbing to the flames and dropping to the ground setting fires. Some of these birds at the end attempted to land in a tree to seek refuge only to die hung up in the tree (see image below). Balloons and kites with incendiary devices were a sufficient threat and their results evil enough, but to use an innocent bird knowing it would die most horribly in the process is just a further indication of their maliciousness. These rioters have no regard for human life and equally lack regard even for innocent animals as long as they serve their purpose of hopefully killing Jews or destroying their lives. These protests have been marked by an expression of a desire to kill Jews, not just Israelis, but all Jews. This has been a consistent theme often chanted by Arabs both within the Palestinian Arab community and within those from Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and beyond. The entire reason behind the Gaza riots has been to try to force the Jews to forfeit additional lands from which they can expand the attacks pushing the Jews ever further until they have been forced from Israel in its entirety. But the Gaza violence is but one side of a many faceted attack.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad have other means of striking at Israel. One such is by using infiltration tunnels. There has been at least one tunnel discovered each month and then abruptly destroyed. Often Hamas, once a tunnel has been compromised, will rush youths into the tunnel knowing it is about to be destroyed. This is done so as to claim that Israel is intentionally blowing up the tunnels when the youths are inside in order to murder children. Children are defined as people under thirty for these purposes. When Israel has detected such events, the destruction has been delayed while the tunnel is cleared. This is seldom if ever reported; the only reports are the ones where it is Israel who gets the blame when youths are killed presumably working in the tunnels and never Hamas for rushing them into the tunnel immediately before its destruction. These forces in Gaza also have a full range of rockets with which to attack Israel. During the last conflict, Hamas had rockets capable of reaching the outskirts of Jerusalem and almost as far north as Haifa. This places all of Tel Aviv and surrounding region within the range of Hamas rockets with the largest warheads (see chart below). The M302 is also called the “Jerusalem Rocket” for the most obvious of reasons and has a monument to it in Gaza City. That rocket also has a considerable warhead at one-hundred-fifty kilograms, three-hundred-thirty lbs. which would be capable of toppling one of the fifty-stories plus towers in the center of Tel Aviv and spread throughout the city. The cost in lives from such a catastrophe would be the horrific cost as the building can be cleared and rebuilt providing jobs, but the people cannot be replaced as each has a perfect soul with only the imperfections they have added during their lives. Fortunately, Hashem is generous in his forgiveness accepting all honest confessions. Those who do not seek such forgiveness or act in an abominable manner are a completely different matter, but even they can receive forgiveness through having a change of heart which alters their actions and modifies their thoughts. People are irreplaceable, which is one of the main differences between the Israeli thought patterns and those of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PLO, as they believe that only a chosen few are important and the rest of their people are expendable if they further the goals of their leadership. This is the kind of society which produces suicide bombers often sending the most fragile and vulnerable amongst them including children and mentally challenged in order to murder innocents.


Hamas Rockets and Missiles Nomenclature, Ranges and Payloads


The rational behind the Hamas sponsored rioting is to have youths destroy Israeli crops and deny the use of the land while merely risking the lives of youth who have been indoctrinated to believe that through death they will find immortal life in a garden with lush grass, beautiful waterfalls, babbling streams, fruit trees abounding and, of course, their seventy-two raven haired virgins who magically remain virgins forever and much much more. Many of these youths actually believe such and as the economy in Gaza is close to collapse due to the money wasted on attempts to destroy Israel, some simply do not treasure life. Hamas also keeps the people of Gaza under strict control and censorship only permitting limited news which is often Hamas designed. Many in Gaza believe that life in Israel is so much worse and that every Israeli is a blood-thirsty monster deeply wanting to murder every Gazan. This is part of why so many Palestinian Arab youth, whose education consists of indoctrination to hate Jews and Israel, are willing to die in an effort to kill Israelis (see video below). The Hamas leadership also does all it is able to block Gazans, who would be better served in an Israeli hospital, refuse them permission even after Israel has approved their treatment. This control over the population is necessary, as the people cannot be permitted to know that their government is wasting tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars and Euros in futile efforts to destroy Israel. Most of the Palestinian leadership, which includes Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and more have stashed away millions of dollars in accounts around the globe. Despite this, the people remain loyal because they believe the lies as the lies are reinforced by the United Nations and a whole network of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and thus anti-Semitic NGOs and organizations.



Using anti-Israel or Jew hatred as the basis of any group has become an automatic money-making venture. The United Nations will provide you a platform such as the Durban conferences which were titled as World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance but were nothing more than an Israel bashing, Jew hating event which the United Nations will continue ad-infinitum. The BDS movement which calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel was born from the Arab boycott of Israel and has worked to further feed the Palestinian terror systems as well as towards furthering the hatred of Israel and Jews on college campuses across the Western World. These are but two of the more obvious examples. What is really sad, sickening actually, are the numbers of groups such as J-Street which have decided that as long as Israel is not beholden to leftist extremism, then even Jews are supposed to hate Israel, especially American Jews and these groups provide a venue for such hate. The Jews who belong and profit from such groups, and that includes Rabbis for Peace who also call for Palestinian rights but demand that Israel surrender to every Arab demand claiming that the Arabs are being fair and refusing to believe the reality that the only solution the Arabs will accept is the destruction of Israel, mostly are not religious with some exceptions amongst the Haredi such as the Neturei Karta. Hatred of Israel is anti-Semitism when Israel is the sole nation to have committed presumed crimes such that it does not deserve to exist. There is even a person whose job at the United Nations is to dream up plans to harm Israel in any way conceivable. The position is “special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories,” which was originally held by Richard A. Falk who was followed by his wife after he hit term limits and is currently held by Michael Lynk who has called for the United Nations to review Israeli membership as it may need to be suspended for violations of International Law. This is not even a new charge but it is interesting that Syria, Yemen, China, Turkey and all the other one-hundred-ninety-plus nations other than Israel has ever had anywhere near the numbers of attacks and special investigations performed through United Nations authority nor has any other nations ever been placed on the agenda permanently such that every time the organization met, it was to first denounce Israel for crimes against the Palestinians or Humanity, pending on their mood of the day, and then they could get down to the actual business at hand. This was, of course, the United Nations Human Rights Council who easily wind being in the top ten anti-Israel world organizations. Yet, apparently there is nothing wrong with setting your neighboring nation on fire intentionally as there have been next to no condemnations of the persistent state of riots from Gaza, or should we call it what it really is, Hamastan, the worlds first purely terrorist nation, well, until Palestine is born as then there will be another thing for these two groups to fight over, who gets first claim.

We Have a Question and a Statement for President Trump

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:03 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,


But be assured, it will end with a question mark and a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ will not suffice as an answer. The initial part of our multi-subject question concerns the demands from Palestinian spokespeople from such corridors as their closed PLO office in Washington D.C. where Husam Zomlot as head of the recently-closed PLO mission in Washington told AFC, “Their words go against their actions and their action is absolutely clear, is destroying the possibility of the two-state solution.” He also commented, with anything stated telepathically in italics, that anything the President says is insufficient in bringing the Palestinians back to the negotiating table. Please allow us to translate that from Palestinian to normative language for the uninitiated, We Palestinians will not negotiate for even a single instant that a photo-op takes without ‘Yuge’ (they also speak Trumpeze) bribes in the form of land, released terrorists and promises which we know the Israelis, those Jews, will keep because they are fools, and then we will come for a quick photo-op because then you as President will have your moment in the sun and will have forced the Jews to pay for it. We will never surrender from our position of a one-Arab-state-solution. The Jews can stay because we will require slaves to keep the money flowing but when they are no longer prosperous enough for our likings, then we will need people to blame and execute as executions make the public happy. He kept much of his statement as a silent one in his head, but he had to at least think it so as to claim that he had warned everyone this would happen afterwards when they claim he mislead the world. You see, with Taqiyyah, you can have something said in some odd manner, including saying it in your head, and then claim that you communicated it to President Trump and it is not your fault he is cranially inadequate to have understood what you told him telepathically at the time when you met at the United Nations. 


The Palestinians have a unique form of making deals with the uneducated imbeciles from the United States. They understand the more sophisticated means of Arab Islamic negotiations where those who wish to talk must first be too strong for you to defeat one-on-one. Then one always begins the negotiations from the very first word. Then the negotiations go through the following stages, pre-negotiating where the non-Islamic side is required to make a series of painful and ever escalating concessions; they plan on having more negotiations after these fail, that is crucial to their method, until it becomes obvious that we have gone too far and are now testing your patience, which we have found to be quite tolerant even of insults. Once we have the concessions part met and agreed upon, but with nothing in writing; this way we could have claimed that during negotiations we will accept this or promised to do that and can, as it was not in writing, claim these things were never agreed upon and that as Arab and Islamic we are very sad you lacked the proper understanding, namely that you give, we promise and never deliver, you give some more because you brought that up and now we feel insulted that you were cheating and we need to be soothed for the insult that you would think so of our actions and not just accept that we are superior. Finally, after a few added rounds of having you, President Trump, squeeze everything and a few additional goodies from Israel, now we can have that nice lunch on the White House lawn with a nice lamb served up from a Halal caterer and then a quick photo-op and run as we did not realize it was so late, sorry, have to sign it another day in Jerusalem, our side of Jerusalem, oh, and add that to the promises. Then President Trump will try to move forward and find that he is back at square one and they are demanding that Israel must be forced to provide a new set of goodies. As to the question of what they really want, that is simple and does not even require that a Palestinian Arab nation be formed, it just requires that Israel be destroyed, the Jews do not get to have their own country because they are Jews and then the Jews who failed to get out in time will be ours to do with as we please resulting eventually in their public executions. Theirs is a different view of the world and threats to their way of life and seeing the world, which is depicted by the map shown in the picture below.


How the Arab and Core Muslims See the World and Israel (our appreciation to <a target=blank>Edgar</a>)
How the Arab and Core Muslims See the World and Israel
(our appreciation to Edgar)


The Islamic and, coincidentally, the Arab viewpoint of any negotiations are simply to provide the schedule for the complete surrender of the lands the Zionist stole from the superior Islamic forces when they destroyed a nation which has never existed as anything more than the Roman name given the area of Judea and Samaria after their defeat of the Jews over five hundred years before Islam ever existed. This defeat of the Jews became necessary as the Judeans had overthrown Roman Rule and as such had to be destroyed Roman style. They employed the exact same dispersion as had removed the Carthaginians from world memory except for the history of their three glorious but in the end unfruitful wars with Rome, the Three Punic Wars. The Jews had a similar history with Rome which was the reason for their receiving the presumed culture killing dispersion. I realize that there are not a huge number of Jews left in the world, as we have suffered some other little problems with some along the same scale and a few worse as the Roman dispersion punishment leaving us to be less than 0.2% of the world’s population, but we are willing to bet more people reading this have met a Jew than have met a Carthaginian. In this region, the Arabs had been replaced by the European rulers after World War I. This led to the Colonial Powers imposing borders, randomly drawn and resulting in maximum chaos. That is exactly what we see breaking down virtually everywhere across the Arab world from Iraq to Libya. Much of it surrounding Israel was put into motion by, yes, by the French and the British whose two diplomats drew up the region to promote the necessity of a strong-man type leader with a map drawn by Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot who drew up the Sykes–Picot Agreement creating the French and British Mandates (see map below). This agreement was drawn up in Paris and London with little if any consultations with the commanders in the field and with no regard to any promises or arrangements which were made to win people to the Allied effort. One of the biggest swindles was the exclusion of Kurdistan which had been promised by a British officer who, to his credit, was quite put out, as the British might say at that time, and he took his complaint to the Defense Ministry and was informed that politics had become settled and nothing could be done. The politics was know later to be what became British Petroleum, then Getty Oil, and the Mosul oil fields which were generously leased to them by the King of Iraq who the British had just installed. This map eventually resulted in 78% of the British Mandate after Iraq has been formed, went to the Arabs such that the other son from King Faisal would also be granted a kingdom. This left 22% for the Jewish State with a border between the two of the Jordan River, the one time the British actually took the lay of the land into consideration. When you hear Mahmoud Abbas claiming that he is only asking for 22% of the land, he means the 22% of the British Mandate which was not Jordan. He is demanding to be given all of Israel, not some percentage of Israel, and this is a very important and vital fact which all politicians must understand if they are to understand anything.

When Abbas and the rest of his crew of ‘individuals,’ and we are using that term individuals in the loosest of senses, refer to the area they require be granted them include all of Israel. They feel this is fair because they conquered this region long ago and that makes it Islamic forever, the Quran says so, and that ends the discussion. Well, apparently Mahmoud Abbas has found a plan he would actually accept as long as one additional condition is met. The deal Abbas heard was for an autonomous region where the Palestinian Arabs residing in the Shomron would be granted Jordanian citizenship and could either move to Jordan and receive a brand new apartment with a job at a local factory and possibly an incentive to ease the cost and strain of moving. These companies will be producing goods which are sold in the United States and are imported without any duty or other taxes by the United States, Egypt or Jordan. These will be communities build around these factories which are part of a program calling to build a Qualifying Industrial Zone (QIZ) where an Israeli company is granted this advantage access to the United States markets as they provide jobs for Jordanian and Egyptian citizens. There is thought of expanding this program which works to the benefit of Israel, Jordan, Egypt and the American consumer who receives a better price for these items. This will give Palestinian Arabs from both the Shomron, close to Jordan, and Gaza, close to Egypt, to be able to easily take advantage of these programs, new good paying jobs and new apartments. You can call it a bribe, an incentive, an enticement or even a buy-out, but it is the kind of offer which might just be too much to pass up. When this leaked that there was a plan which would combine the population of the Palestinian Arabs in the Shomron with Jordan, as Abbas cares even less about the Arabs in Gaza so their getting to do this same deal with Egypt was of no consequence to him, Abbas stated he thought that it was a great idea which had not been taken to its natural limit. We discussed this as part of the closing of the PLO office in Washington article from about a week and a half back. Abbas says that this is a great idea as long as all the “refugees” are included and also Israel is made a part of this super-state. What would such a nation be called? It might be Holocaust II or twenty-two-million wolves and seven-million sheep discussing the dinner menu. It is far too easy to see why suddenly the idea of uniting the Arabs being altered just slightly to reunite all the lands from the British Mandate, and add in the darlings of the world, the five-million Palestinian Refugees, the only refugees who pass their status from parents to children at birth, and then stir briskly and see how things turn out. We are sure that Mahmoud Abbas also would demand that the IDF be disbanded and the Jordanian Military be tasked with security.


The only thing puzzling us here at BTC is exactly how long is it going to take before President Trump realizes beyond any doubt that the only peace any of the Arabs are willing to accept is the one where there is no Israel, the Jews have no power over the land or their rights and the Jews are made their Dhimmis exactly as demanded by the Quran. And while President Trump is working to digest that, perhaps he should be warned that the Islamic World also demands that Andalusia be returned to them as it was stolen by the Church back around 1492, and despite the obvious coincidence, it has nothing to do with Columbus and everything to do with much of Spain and the whole Iberian Peninsula. The Arabs actually agree with many of the European leadership and high placed individuals in that the Jews rightful place is subjugated with little if any rights and providing a service to the community and also providing a target for blame whenever any calamity strikes from a plague to the flu or an economic downturn or a surprise where elections went differently than predicted or anything else which can be simply blamed away as the Jews did ‘it’ and now they must pay. This type of treatment was very much the way in much of Europe from around the third century BCE and spread rapidly across the Middle East and then across Northern Africa and down the Nile River covering a region often referred to as MENA. This was the Caliphate at near its greatest expanse which reached across the Iberian Peninsula where the Islamic conquests were turned back at the Battle of Tours where Charles the Hammer Martel defeated their army and they retreated back into Spain where they were later expelled along with most of the Jews during the Spanish Inquisition. The Islamic world was little different as the Jews, along with Christians, were considered Dhimmi, a protected class of citizen who is without legal rights and who can be required to pay a special Jiyza Tax to remain a protected people as “People of the Book.” In both Christian Europe, after the Reformation, things remained pretty much the same as both Catholics under the Pope and the Protestants under their various leaderships, both treated the Jews with some degree of disdain, and the Islamic World there were times when Jews were treated quite well as they provided services which were necessary or the community was in a period where there was wealth and things were quite good, and when things were less wonderful, the Jews were treated less wonderfully. Whenever either the Christians or the Muslims entered a more fanatical or religiously fevered period, then the Jews could expect to face major difficulties. These rejections have had their greatest effect since the start of World War II in Europe and the aftermath in the Islamic World.



Europe murdered six million Jews amongst the nearly thirteen million murdered in the Concentration Camps and through simple executions in the field where in many Polish towns the Nazis simply marched the Jews out of town a distance into the surrounding forest, had the Jews dig a fairly large ditch and then shot them pushing the bodies into the ditch. Under Islam the form of killing the Jews was usually beheading as this was the method the Prophet Muhammad used when he beheaded around nine-hundred men, women and children but mostly men of the Qurayza Tribe of Jews. Thus, when the Muslims decided that the Jews required to be taught lessons, they would behead a selected group, often largely from the leadership, this would make the replacement leadership far more pliable as they realized the threat and acted cautiously. This meant that in Europe the Jews often fled from one nation where things had turned against them to another where treatment was better. Under the Muslims, moving would not often be an option as your tribe often had roots which predated the conquest by Islam and moving just did not appeal as you were either ruled by the Caliphate to the Ottoman Empire wherever you were located, thus the treatment was relatively consistent. The misconception that the Jews were treated horribly in Europe and gloriously by the Muslims is a false history as both the Christians and the Muslims believed that the Jews were a form of evil people who had betrayed Hashem and had been replaced as the Chosen People; in Europe the Christians were the replacement and in the Islamic world Islam had replaced the Jews.


After World War II, many Jews learned that returning to their previous homes and towns would often result in their being murdered by their former townsfolk because after they were removed by the Nazis, some of the townsfolk had taken their home and others their workplaces and they no longer had a place in their former home towns. This was why so many Jews ended up in relocation camps, sometimes these camps were the same camps used by the Nazis. The British, through simply falling to Arab demands, as the Arabs could cause far more trouble than the Jews could being there were more Arabs than Jews in what would become Israel, limited Jewish immigration to what was to become Israel and kept the vast majority in the camps back in Europe and on Cyprus. After Israel declared her independence, then the European Jews were freed to immigrate, which they did, coming into a war zone where there were six Arab armies plus militias attempting to destroy Israel in her cradle. The Arabs succeeded in taking land from what was promised to become the Jewish State with Egypt holding Gaza and Jordan holding parts of the Shomron which they renamed West Bank and forced numbers of Jordanians to relocate into these illegally held lands; those were the original setters, Jordanian Arabs forcibly relocated to prevent Jews from their lands. After the initial war of 1948-9 finally ended, then came the second wave of Jews in a steady stream from the Arab and Muslim world as the nations of MENA forced their Jews from their homes and with almost all of them having nowhere to go as the world still refused to take in Jews, the vast majority made their way to Israel and they were taken in and accepted into Israeli society, all eight-hundred-thousand plus of them. This made Israel a true mix of the Jews from both the Christian world in Europe and the Muslim world of the MENA states. This gave Israel an almost equal balance between the two main regions of Jewish society. So, that was the framework which gave birth to Israel. There have been a number of wars and conflicts forced upon Israel and Israel has saved the world from facing Saddam Hussein with nuclear weapons and Bashir al-Assad from having nuclear weapons. Now there are those claiming that Israel will prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons; so the world need not worry about them. What if it is already too late?


President Trump, have you ever heard of the Khartoum Resolution? It was the declaration of the “Three No’s:” “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” About the only thing they left out was their reasoning; they believed that the world would eventually simply destroy Israel by some means for them, thus their dream of “No Israel.” That is the only solution that the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds will accept, the complete and total destruction of the Jewish State and no replacement or alternate location, the Jews must be brought low again. This is their single demand and unless that is included in the deal, then there can be no deal. It is that simple President Trump, if you want a deal, then simply destroy Israel and get the Jews to accept their inferiority and subjection to Islam and then things will work out just fine. No Israel will soon mean no Jews and that would fit their natural order of the way the world should be. Of course their demands do not end with the Jews, oh no! Their Quran and the Hadiths tell them how they are the chosen by Allah to rule the entire world and that all will bow to Allah. There can be no other result according to their holy books and what their Imams teach them. Islam will rule the world and there will be a single form of Islam accepted around the world. Of course, which version of Islam will prove to be the only one in the world had not yet been decided, and this conflict is killing more Muslims around the world than Israel could ever kill. The number one groups of people killing the believers of Islam are other believers of Islam. As you well know, Mr. President, there are forces of Muslims prepared to murder hundreds of thousands of other Muslims in Syria as this is being posted without a single Jews involved what-so-ever. Yet, the lie the Islamic faithful keep trying to infuse into the world is if only Israel was erased and the Jews all subjugated, then the entirety of the Middle East and North Africa would be at peace. This is as far from the reality as one can get. The Muslims have been killing Muslims almost forever as stated by T. E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia) “Sherif Ali, so long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people, greedy, barbarous, and cruel as you are.” Their refusal to accept the existence of a Jewish nation is just as much about their injured pride in losing conflict after conflict with Israel and being unable to destroy this obviously inferior nation of nonbelievers is simply another version of what Lawrence saw as their largest challenge. As the old saying goes, some things just never change. As long as the Arab and Muslim world see everything as an absolute and that only their maximalist demands are rational and all else is against the will of Allah, then there will be no peace. The problem is with Israel in the Arab mind and that problem is that Israel exists and remains the Jewish State. As might be stated in an old movie, if only it was something other than the Jewish State, the problem is actually that it is not a Muslim state and specifically, and Arab Muslim State as that is the perfect desire of Allah. So, President Trump, whatever your plan which you expect to unfurl and have it receive applause all around, that is not possible as long as your plan does not address their biggest problem, the existence of Israel as the Jewish State. So, how will your ‘Deal of the Century’ get around the, make Israel disappear, demand from Abbas as well as Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and all the rest? Even if the Jews were placed in a starship and it was reported ten years hence that they had found and were colonizing a planet around Alpha Centauri Group, there would be an Imam somewhere who would claim that Allah had granted the Muslims with the right to that planet and would demand that the United Nations remove them so the true owners, the Centaurian Muslims, could be taken there to settle their rightful home-world and as thanks to the Jews for finding their long lost world, well, they can serve as the original Dhimmi class in that world. This is the kind of fanaticism which you are facing, President Trump, and we do not envy your task. Perhaps this will serve as the task too far of all your campaign claims and promises, and nobody should hold the lack of a workable peace for Israel and her neighbors; we are sure you are going to give it your best shot and even when it fails, we can ask nothing more. We only hope you will not make the mistake of demanding that Israel sacrifice even more for nothing in return. We have played that game a few too many times. We should have learned immediately after the Oslo Accords, or at Madrid or Camp David or Paris or after Ehud Barak gave Arafat everything he told President Clinton was necessary and then Arafat walked out, or after Ehud Olmert offered another unbelievable deal which we told Israelis not to worry, the Arabs will refuse the deal as they did as it left Israel standing, though barely. The Arabs will only accept Israel destroyed, and the United States is not yet ready to do that, and that is why there cannot be any peace. The problem is all Israel because she demands to exist and the Arabs refuse to take that as part of any solution.

To Make a Safer Israel


We will take a look at what it would mean to make Israel safe for all such that none need fear a knife in the back, a gun in their face or any other threat to life and limb. Such an Israel would make life better for both Jew, Muslim, Christian, Arab, Pilipino, Druze, Bedouin and anyone else be they temporary workers, tourists and especially people living inside the borders of Israel. This will not be an easy task nor will it come without some actions guaranteed for brandishing against Israel by her consistent detractors worldwide. The storms which will follow actions intended for mutual advancement and insuring safety for all will be portrayed as racist, the favorite charge of those opposed to equality for all and seeking only power for themselves. You will not have to believe us on this as if and when any of these ideas are adopted generally within Israel, the screaming which will follow calling the people behind the changes racist will be just the start. There will be meetings demanded in the United Nations General Assembly, the Human Rights Commission, petitions of the United Nations Security Council, claims filed with the Israeli Supreme Court, emergency sessions of the European Union and these are but an introduction before the storm of protests in every western capital and major city by all the usual suspect NGO’s. Still, the safety concerns and threats to all residing between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea must come to an end.


The main threat to all these people is terrorism. Terrorism affects every part of the Israeli community from the Jews to the Arabs and everyone inbetween. This scourge should never have been invited back into Israel with the return of Yasser Arafat. We now know that he did not return to be a partner to building the best Israel for all its peoples but as a conquering hero to deconstruct everything which had been built and accomplished by Israel and prevent all which was still to be accomplished by Israel. Oslo is now a sad fact of history and unchangeable. The Second and Stabbing Intifadas are two more sad facts of history which are not going to be easily erased. But as much as these events tore great wounds in the Israeli society and destroyed lives, we would rather not count, and been the cause of too many funerals on all sides; there is no longer reason to continue with this farce, this charade, this war by peace process. Israeli governments had every reason to end this at its infancy and at every painful growing step inbetween and must finally put this monster in its grave. Jews have born the brunt of the damage in deaths and maimed citizens. Arabs have born an unintended damage of lost trust, lost opportunity, lost liberties, loss of freedoms and loss of trust by non-Arabs. The casualties from this monster cut across racial, gender, ethnicity and religious grounds and have taken a toll on all. This must end and end immediately.


The initial step will be the most difficult, it always is. As every paratrooper learns if they have never jumped before, the hardest part of that first jump is the step off of a perfectly functioning aircraft. That first step is a crucially necessary yet frightening step, as are all first steps as they take us from what we were comfortable with, even if uneasily so, and place us in a new and uncertain future where things are going to need to change. The same will be true in making Israel better and safer for every one of her peoples. The first step in this case comes concerning Mahmoud Abbas and his concert of fellow terror masters. They need to be returned to where they were before Oslo, not necessarily Tunisia, but definitely exiled and persona-non-grata from Israel. Then the remaining leadership of Fatah, the PLO, Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, officers from security forces and everyone who is a known participant in the terror campaign to force the Jews from Israel and replace the Israeli democracy with an Islamic Sharia tyranny will need to be removed. This step will be opposed with force often using the very weapons Israel provided the security personnel. At the start, let it be known that every person, both Jew and Arab and all others will have a simple choice, which side they stand with. One side will be represented by the IDF and Shin Bet security agency and the other by the terrorists and their supporters. Those deciding to stand with Israel should let this be known at their earliest convenience to an IDF soldier or Israeli security personnel and you will be located in a safe place for the hopefully fairly short duration. The leadership is known to Israeli security officials and will be located and sent into exile with their ill gotten gains and can live the remainder of their lives in wealth. Those who decide that they would prefer to go out in a blaze of glory, the IDF is fully capable of providing that blaze, as far as glory, the IDF is not in the glory business, just the saving of innocents to the best of their ability.


Terrorism is Light’s Out


After the leadership has been removed, the remainder will be more at ease and able to decide their own future. This offer will be made to all residing between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea, and it will be a one time offer for each to choose including those who are Jews as we would not desire to leave out any from even amongst our own who have questionable loyalty. For Israelis, it will be assumed that you are loyal to Israel and if this is a problem for you, it would be to your advantage to avail yourself of one of the deals which places you outside Israel; otherwise, it will be assumed that you have accepted the loyalty oath. For those residing in Palestinian Arab regions, if you desire to remain within the borders of Israel (River to the Sea), then you will be required to sign a loyalty oath where you are simply promising to never take up arms against the country of Israel nor intentionally harm those residing within her borders. What are the other alternatives should you decide not to sign such an oath? They are very simple. There will be an offer to buy your properties for which you can prove ownership and then you can leave Israel never to return. It is likely that there will be a sliding scale bonus which is intended to make any relocation more easily accomplished. This relocation bonus will start at some set figure and then each month that passes it will be reduced by ten percent and after the tenth month will no longer be available, so if you are leaving, haste is to you own interests. After a year has passed from the completion of removal of the leadership and known terror planners, bomb makers, rocket makers, terror trainers and all the other people deeply entrenched in the terror trade, those remaining who have not signed the loyalty oath will be found and forced into exile as they will be assumed to be sympathetic to the causes of terror and intend to destroy the Jewish state. From this point forward, any act of terror will result in exile with no opportunity for return for the terrorist and every last person who aided the terror. Those who decide that Israel was joking about permanent exile and return into the borders, they will be arrested and their penalty will be simple, first offense will result in exile and second offense will have a sentence of life imprisonment or the death penalty. The latter will be more likely if the return was with the intent of causing an insurrection or for the commission or coordination of acts of terror.


We can propose what we view as the best hope and opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs as have a number of other editorialists and political scientists, and each of our plans will give a disparate group an idea of how their area would best be served, and their situations may change while they adjust, but they all have the same shortcoming, they are not able to be implemented as long as Mahmoud Abbas has the heaviest and largest group of guns and the thugs to use them. Nobody is going to step forward to take any of these opportunities is doing so will only get them dead. That is where Israel will need to step up to the plate and remove the threats hanging over these people’s heads and give them one final shot at freedom and the management of their own lives. They will also need to understand that this is their last and final shot at living real, ordinary lives and that it is going to take all of them working to realize a true and tangible, honest and viable peace with Israel or they will force Israel’s hands, and those hands have even more and bigger guns than Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all the other terror and criminal gangs combined. Israel can and should offer the Palestinian Arabs willing to sign an agreement where they will no longer wage a war of any kind against Israel in exchange for the managing of their own lives freely and with the rights they are willing to grab. If the Palestinian Arabs cannot take over their own lives and allow criminals or terrorists to take over once again, then they will have spoken for their area and will face the appropriate action in return. Mess up this opportunity and lose your opportunity to remain within the borders of Israeli provided protection and the result is you will likely find yourself in Jordan if lucky and Syria if not or potentially anywhere inbetween where somebody is willing to take you. But this final opportunity will obviously not be won independently by the Palestinian Arabs without Israel first removing the threats from around their collective necks. Initially, this will be peace at the end of a collection of IDF bayonets as Israel provides the initial fertile ground for the Palestinian Arabs to show their true colors.


Israel will need to remove the PLO, Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and everyone else who refuses to permit the Palestinian Arabs their right to freely choose their new leaders for possibly the first and definitively their last time. Either they choose leadership capable and willing to work with and reside peaceably under an Israel security umbrella which will keep out the rain but also not permit threats of any kind from within the Palestinian Arab population. The people of Gaza were presumably given an opportunity to build the perfect Palestinian Arab society and they did this by throwing off the Palestinian Authority and PLO largely and for the main reason that they were not killing Israelis fast enough and they chose Hamas to lead them. Well, this time there will be no PLO, no Hamas, no Islamic Jihad, no Islamic State, no Iran and nothing to prevent the Palestinian Arabs willing to sign a loyalty oath declaring their intention to live at peace with Israel from choosing leadership and a form of self-governance which will work for their benefit and pose no threat to Israel. Of course, some groups of Palestinian Arabs will choose to continue the old habits under new leadership. The first ones caught heading in this direction will hopefully serve as warning to how this will end for any others contemplating their own extinction event. Israel has run out of patience with those dead-set on attempting to murder every Israeli and some even every Jew in the world. This is the one thing which will be evidenced as the quick way to lose everything. This will be the final opportunity to have self governance and for remaining within these walls. Any attempts at choosing a terror based governance or other governance evil in its outcome will result in the elimination of that group of Palestinian Arabs as they will be deported. Any group deciding to elect Barghouti or similar anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or anti-Semitic leadership will find themselves under close scrutiny and if some form of general insurrection is their true choice, well, that will be their last lost hope for independent and a free existence. Israel should be prepared for anywhere up to half of the disparate Palestinian Arab choices to result in a simple continuation of the same embezzlement and rampant violence forcing the Israelis to act immediately to counter such a choice from initiating a more dangerous and well armed core group. Any such group should be treated as the pariah as they have earned to be treated. Israel is under no real suffocation and need not permit any rejectionist groups from operating within her borders and posing a danger to her people. Any township, city or other entity resulting within the Palestinian Arab leadership inimical to Israeli interests will be removed along with those who support them. Should this result in the exile of the entirety of the Palestinian Arab population, then that will just have to be the result with which the world will simply have to adjust, even the European Union. If the European Union truly cares so deeply for the Palestinian Arabs, then perhaps this could be the place to put those whose final choice was to one last time choose those who would work to destroy Israel.


There have been ample opportunities for the Palestinian Arabs to find a suitable form of governance which could provide them with the means for productive lives posing no threats to Israel. Even so, this will necessarily be their final shot at a decent life of self-respect, self-reliance and peaceful coexistence with Israel. Choose poorly and one can expect consequences as the Palestinian Arabs will not be provided any more opportunity to choose wisely, carefully and fully cognizant of what a poor choice will bring upon them. Still, we figure at least one third will still choose leaders who desire to bring Jihad against Israelis before even thinking of their responsibility to govern the people for whose lives they are responsible. These will be sent to join the initial wave who voluntarily decided to leave. There will not be any further games or failures of leadership as the safety and opportunity to live full and productive lives is also the right of every Israeli. Far too many Israeli lives have been lost or shattered being sacrificed for the sake of Palestinian Arab freedoms. It is far beyond time that Israel acted solely for the benefit of her citizens and made a future for their children free from the fear, war, terrorism and the other pestilence which have plagued Israeli society as they wore the albatross of the Palestinian terrorist debacles around their necks. Israel is and always has been and will be a beacon of life and opportunity and must no longer suffer these defeatist attitudes. This may be the last time Israel will have the backing of the White House in taking such steps to bring an end to what has been the most intractable problem of the last hundred years. None of this means that Israel must act rashly or vindictively out of desires for revenge. This is an opportunity to give doing the most for the Palestinian Arabs this final time before simply cutting them out no longer permitting them the free range to harm Israeli citizens. Israel need not suffer any more deaths, kidnappings or even holding the bodies stolen from the field of battle as hostages. The time to push a new dynamic is long overdo and if Israel misses this golden opportunity, she very well may never see another such opportunity come her way for the foreseeable future. Israel no longer has any time to count her blessings and must realize they need to strike while the opportunity is available with a guaranteed veto of any Security Council sanctions. Israel, if required, must act in her highest interests which must be her own people and especially her children. Israel must suffer no further Fogel family slaughters or Salomon family slaughters who were assaulted at their Shabbat evening dinner meal, deaths of infants such as Adel Biton or Chaya Zisel Braun’s whose family were struck as part of a vehicular ramming attack at a Jerusalem light rail disembarking point (see video below), no further Park Hotel Massacres where people, largely older people, siting for a Passover Seder were gunned down where they sat or any other of the nearly uncountable terrorist attacks which have plagued the Israeli people since this war against the Jewish People began around 630 A.D. in Medina, Saudi Arabia. Israel need not lose another soldier to terror and its ramifications.



This must, by necessity, be the absolute final opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs to get their governance correct. Should they at any point going forward allow terrorists to take over their government, then they will have earned Israel sending their entire village, city or area into exile. It is well past time for Israel to simply say, ‘Enough,’ to all the terrorism and violence. There is no other viable option than to pacify the Palestinian Arab population by destroying their ability to do harm as well as removing those communities which pose a threat. This can be accomplished by new governance but should they choose to remain ruled by terrorist masters, then they will be ruling themselves from outside of Israel where such actions would be able to be considered an act of war, and aggression from a foreign nation upon Israel. If it becomes necessary that Israel take the position and the world be damned, then such need be the case. Anyway one slices this cake, it is the last opportunity for a group which has been granted several such opportunities and never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. No more.
