Methodology of Leftist NGO’s and Their Enablers

 

Some are amazed at the apparent support that exists for the farthest leftist causes and how they inundate companies resulting in sufficient influential force to have these companies alter their business practices. The greatest example of this has been the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) efforts against Israel. Such charities as Oxfam have been pressured to forcing a choice upon their chosen international representative, Scarlett Johansson. The problem is that the well-known actress, Scarlett Johansson, was also in advertisements for the company SodaStream, which at the time had a factory in the Shomron which many claim is rightfully belonging to the Arab Palestinians. Scarlett Johansson chose to remain the representative for SodaStream and stepped down from Oxfam. There is a further development on this story. When SodaStream built a new factory, they also bent to the pressures and built the new factory within the Green Line. This resulted in hundreds of Arab Palestinians losing their jobs. That BDS pressure sure is helping these Arab workers, but they are just collateral damage in the war to destroy Israel. Destroying the Jewish State by claiming to assist Arab Palestinians more often than not harms these very same people causing them to become unemployed from Jobs which paid higher wages than any other including Palestinian Authority positions including their Security Forces. The only higher paying jobs for these people are to become terrorists and murder Israelis in order to gain an early retirement income from the Palestinian Authority. Perhaps this is the real reason for the BDS Movement; force Arab Palestinians into unemployment until they become so desperate they are willing to kill innocent Israelis in order to generate a permanent income for them and their families.

 

The latest target of the BDS Movement has been the real estate listing service, Airbnb. They have censored their listings removing those beyond the Green Line which belong to Jews as well as those in the Golan Heights. We would like to quote NGO Watch found in the article titled, “The New Israel Fund encouraged the Airbnb boycott of Israel.” NGO Watch noted:


“This change in policy was a clear result of a coordinated and well-financed campaign targeting the company by NGOs involved in BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns against Israel, led by Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), in concert with the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), at least three Israeli groups, and the Palestinian Authority. The funders responsible for this campaign include a number of European governments as well as the US-based Rockefeller Brothers Fund.”

The above-mentioned article contains other references for any interested in finding any additional information.

 

So, this is how these numerous groups on the far left can organize to apply so much pressure on companies, governments, charities and other organizations including international organizations. This amount of organization is impressive and gives the appearance that these groups have hundreds, thousands and far more in some instances. Their tactic is to inundate their target with e-mails, snail mail, phone calls directly to top officials’ numbers when they are able to procure them and press releases to every media source on the planet castigating their target for their obvious questionable actions, support, locations or political leanings. Their tactics actually use their most active and dedicated members to assume numerous identities in order to magnify their pressure. This can be accomplished through simple subterfuge. One easily adopted methodology is for members to apply for numerous e-mail accounts using different names from the many numerous free e-mail services. By attaining a second e-mail address, one can then apply to another service using both of these e-mails as identification. Then they can use three of these e-mails to gain three additional addresses from their first e-mail provider. Now they have seven with which to get additional addresses all under different names and one can see how with the numerous free e-mail providers, one can accumulate a great number of e-mails all under separate names identifying the sender. Then, when they need to pressure anything which has crossed the targeting of their NGO or organization, they send a single e-mail from each of the addresses amassed with a different message. These messages do not need to be elaborate, though a small number will be more fervent than the rest, and send these to the targeted entity which will soon get the feeling that they are facing a massive populist movement with potentially millions of supporters. These NGOs who master this ploy maximizing their effectiveness are rewarded with additional funding from government and the numerous arms of the United Nations and other supportive groups, as noted in the above NGO Watch quotation.

 

Do not even bother to ask whether this is proper or legal, as such is of little concern when there is a cause to support and force upon some unsuspecting victims. It is the cause and only the cause and whatever it takes is all fair in love of cause and the war to impose it upon the public. Unfortunately, the laws which might be applied would be a stretch as they would need to apply racketeering laws, fraudulent representation or some related or similar laws. The people would play the innocent victim of the state attempting to intimidate them in their efforts to make changes in the world and make it a far better place. Any such attempt would result in a media feeding frenzy which would only serve to further amplify the efforts by these dedicated leftists. Well, don’t rightist groups also use these tactics? Even if this was so, there is a huge difference between most right wing groups and the left wing groups, especially the ones on the far left, and that is a little thing called intersectionality. Intersectionality is a very interesting idea which further amplifies the voice of leftist groups because of the way it links them all into mutual support. Even finding a group of right wing people who share sufficient ideas to form a group is difficult, as we found when attempting to put together a campaign for office. The difference between right and left can be simply described. For two right wing groups to coordinate, they will be required to go through every last political position and should they not agree in total, then they will split and each go their separate way and not coordinate or only loosely coordinate. This does not lead to right wing groups working together and part of why there are so few right wing large demonstrations; you just cannot herd that many right wing groups together and have them play well together. Intersectionality is a weapon which works mostly on the left.

 

There are some exclusionary properties to intersectionality. It normally is used in order to enlarge demonstrations by bringing in supporters from varied groups to support one another and to make every demonstration appear to be more highly active and supported than it is in reality. This also works when supporting political candidates. Take the Women’s March as an example. They were also supported fully by BLM (Black Lives Matter), anti-fa, Amnesty International USA, an SEIU chapter, the Mothers of the Movement, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the National Organization for Women (NOW), the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and the Muslim Women’s Alliance for starters. In the end it was reported that there were over four-hundred supporting groups filling the ranks of the march to highly impressive numbers. But there are some lines which must not be crossed, and anything outside of those lines is shunned and often banned from supporting these preferred movements and from receiving support from this core group included under intersectionality. The shining examples of such ostracized groups are any which support Israel. With groups such as the BDS Movement, BLM, Muslim Women’s Alliance and numerous other ardently pro-Palestinian Arab groups along with others which simply denigrate Israel as the greatest oppressor in all of history, eclipsing the empires of the past from the Babylonians to the British, there is no room for any Jewish group which has not sworn to the destruction of the Jewish State. This came to a head in the 2017 Chicago Dyke March where a group who displayed multi-colored flags with a Star of David was denied permission to participate in the parade. That was topped this year with numerous Palestinian Flags being displayed and, of course, the Jews denied again participation. Israel has received a permanent black spot as far as the inclusive intersectionality leftists are concerned.

This has become a major incident concerning the Women’s Movement as Teresa Shook, one of the original co-founders of the Women’s Movement, has declared her ire at the anti-Semitic leanings of the new leadership and demanded they step down as they have been completely ineffective in preventing hate from seeping into the movement. Teresa Shook took to Facebook and stated:


“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

The results of this should be interesting but we hold out little hope for Teresa Shook to regain control over the movement she helped to birth as the new leftists represented by Women’s March organizers, from left to right, Bob Bland, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory are going to simply push her aside as inconsequential and blame it on her support for Israel when their real reason is that she is a proud Jew.

Control of the future of the Women’s Movement and the face-off mentioned above will be a telling result which will indicate whether or not the Jews have any future on the left. There is far more at stake than demonstration rights and inclusion with the intersectionality group, also at stake is the future and control of the Democrat Party which is rapidly falling into the hands of others just the same as the new leadership in the Women’s Movement. This has been a long time building and was obvious to any observer whose eyes were open and they were not sleeping at the wheel. The left has become weaponized and their sites are currently merely on Israel, but from there it will be a short hop, without even requiring a skip or a jump, to anti-Semitism. The reality is their singular targeting of Israel and no other nation for harming the rights of supposed minorities, despite recognizing that Israel supports the LBGTQ rights, claiming this is merely to hide their sins against the Arab Palestinians which Israel does not rule or have any legal influence upon, is a form of anti-Semitism. They do not even require the hop; they just need be honest which is something we expect to surface in the very near future. The Jews living in the United States reside in a fool’s paradise and are blithely unaware of the target which is being place on their heads. We have seen this exact playbook almost to the letter in too many historical settings to miss seeing the future and the difficulty which will soon start to become even more evident as the Jews start to become confused because none of what will happen will make sense to them. They will claim that they mean those other Jews and will live on in denial until, once again, it is too late. There is another side to these coming realities, and that is that Israel has to wean herself from all United States aid and start producing all her weapons and munitions within her own borders and do so with some urgency. Dark clouds are on the horizon.

There Are No Lone Wolf Terrorist Attacks

 

Ari Fuld, a forty-five year old father of four, American-Israel dual citizen was stabbed in the back for two simple reasons; first was because he was an Israeli and likely a Jew and second because he was preoccupied talking on his cell phone in English. The seventeen-year-old Palestinian Arab from an Arab village near the shopping center told security police that he was seeking to murder an American Jew. He had reportedly entered a nearby store and asked the lady working the counter if she spoke English and her response that she did not probably saved her life. Ari, despite being fatally stabbed in the back and near his heart still managed to chase his attacker and wound him using his legally carried handgun before collapsing thus preventing the terrorist from reaching the woman he was chasing to take a second victim. As the terrorist claimed that he was not a member of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS or any other terrorist group, the reports claim that he was a ‘Lone Wolf’ and as such there was no possible means of preventing his attack. ‘Lone Wolf’ has become the catch-all phrase by which governments are able to claim that there is no means of predicting and preventing such terrorism. ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists, we are told, simply wake up one morning and get the idea that they simply wish to go kill somebody or make a single bomb and murder a group of people. Some of these ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists actually come in small terrorist bands which plot and plan some fairly sophisticated attacks by getting the required information on the Internet for making an explosive device and even the means for hiding their operations and how to maximize the deaths and other casualties, all found on an on-line library. These Internet sites are not placed there by ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists; they are placed there by terrorist instigators who provide these sites as acting terror groups in the hope that they will be used to commit attacks. The entire arrangement is part and parcel with incitement by Imams and other agents from the many and numerous terrorist organizations, and that is what they are, organizations, working to inspire youths to reach life everlasting in a land filled with lush meadows, numerous rivers, lakes, palm trees, wines which you drink without any negative effects and seventy-two raven haired perpetual virgins through martyrdom.

 

When one takes this ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist ruse to explain terror attacks, it is utterly ridiculous as the PLO or the Palestinian Authority or Fatah or some obscure source possible from Mahmoud Abbas’s stolen millions are giving rewards to the families of terrorists for the murdering of Israelis. They get bonuses if they are an Israeli citizen, come from Jerusalem and the family gets a bonus if they are martyred. They are compensated if their terrorist family member is imprisoned with bonuses commensurate with the length of their sentence and additional payments for every additional murder victim. There have been terrorists who have admitted to Israeli authorities that they committed their terror acts in order to provide for their families. They murdered Israelis in order to provide a permanent income promised by their governing bodies for their families and because they were unable to find employment in the Palestinian Authority governed region. The terrorist who murdered Ari Fuld was, in all honesty, a paid assassin from the Palestinian Authority government through a subordinate organization.

Ari Fuld

 

Ari Fuld was an Israeli hero, a super hero to many, a superlative representative of Israel and Zionism, part of his village’s security detail and a person held in esteem and looked up to by many of all ages. Ari Fuld was killed in the shopping center which is built around the supermarket where Israelis and Arabs shop and work together. There are a number of these kinds of shopping centers across all of Israel and they exist near the larger communities in the Shomron. There is something very interesting about these shopping centers which is not often reported; they seem to attract these ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists. Then there are bus stops which also have this propensity to attract ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists. Buses themselves have also collected their share of ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists. If you are beginning to think that almost anywhere you have a probability to be attacked by a ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist, you are not far from wrong. The truth is in the Shomron (disputed territories), Jerusalem, the Tel Aviv metropolitan area or other cities to a lesser degree proportional to their population, then you do run the risk of being murdered by ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorists. What is interesting is that only Israelis, almost exclusively Jews, have been the victims of such attacks though there have been Arabs who have been attacked similarly but the total number is far less to the point of being virtually inconsequential.

There are many things which the world tends to ignore simply because, for the most part, people are not all that concerned with Israelis who fall to terrorism. What is even more worrying is that these same people get up in arms and start criticizing and protesting against Israel should a single Palestinian Arab be killed. This is an old story which has stretched across history from Ancient Egypt through the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persian, Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Crusaders, Ottomans, British, Nazis and as well as the periods between these conquests. All too often, killing the Jews has all too often been the actual policy of the governing bodies which ruled over communities of Jews. These are known throughout history with the two most infamous have been the Spanish Inquisition and the Nazi Holocaust. The Arabs would like to join that infamous list as was stated very clearly by Azzam Pasha speaking of the Arab intent for the 1948-9 Arab Israeli War where Arab forces grabbed the Shomron (West Bank) and Gaza from what was recognized under International Law as the borders of Israel stating, it will be “a war of extermination and momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacre and the Crusades.” This has not changed as there are signs warning Israelis, actually Jews, that their lives are endangered should they proceed further and that it is against Israeli law to enter the Arab ruled regions (see picture below). The interesting corollary does not exist, as there are no signs or warnings for the Arabs that entering into Israeli and Jewish areas, as it would endanger their lives. Arabs, both Israeli and Palestinian, are able to travel around Israel, shop in Israel, eat in Israeli restaurants or eateries, swim at Israeli beaches, receive medical care upon approval from the Palestinian Authority or Hamas, hike in parks, visit playgrounds and do anything that an Israeli is permitted and do so in perfect safety. How is this possible that the Arabs can walk freely in Israel and Israelis will likely die should they do the same in the Palestinian Arab or Hamas controlled regions? The murder of an innocent Israeli as well as the table of the “compensation” of terrorist families for the murder of Israelis is all here in this article. This is another article which references the instigations from Mahmoud Abbas in a number of videos. And then there was another ‘Lone Wolf’ terror attack of a family eating Shabbat dinner as well as the infamous Nablus blood sacrifice of two IDF reservists who took a wrong turn entering Arab controlled areas.

These are the realities in Israel. The Arabs have equality and are permitted to travel wherever they please. Are they often required to pass through a checkpoint? Of course they do as they are technically entering a foreign country. Israelis, particularly Jews, are forbidden, for good reason, from entering into the Palestinian Arab regions. Obviously, the Jews would not survive entering Gaza as even Palestinian Arabs from the Palestinian Authority have faced explosive devices in attempts to murder them, so one can only imagine what might happen to any Israeli attempting to enter Gaza under Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization. Jews who would enter the Palestinian Authority regions would face a near identical result as evidenced in the picture in the last link above the picture. As far as the ‘great inconvenience’ we hear from the Palestinian Arab spokespeople about the requirement for checkpoints, Israelis, all Israelis, are required to go through checkpoints to use the trains, entering malls, going to a concert, entering an area to watch a parade, entering virtually every public event, going to vote, entering a political rally and numerous other places where security requires such especially where there will be large numbers of people. In Israel, for our own safety, requires their going through checkpoints even for something as trivial as eating out at a restaurant, and prices of goods reflect such in their prices as these checkpoints are not free. We have come to expect such and simply accept the checkpoints as being for our own safety and peace of mind. What is not acceptable is the ‘pay to slay’ program run by Mahmoud Abbas and his terrorist leadership and that where Jews must be restricted from entering these Palestinian Arab regions, the Arabs roam freely within Israel enjoying all the same rights and pleasures any Israeli can. Truth be told, a Palestinian Arab walking around within Israel has a likelihood of being the victim of a terrorist attack, but that attack would be committed by another Palestinian Arab mistaking them for an Israeli Jew, and yes the two population have a wide area of similarity in appearances. This has been why most terrorists seek out religious Jews because their clothing identifies them as Jews and as they are not targeting other Arabs, even Israeli Arabs. These are the realities in the bare truth as we can best put the truth.

Time to Cement a Permanent Peace

 

Israel has never been in a more advantageous position since they wasted their victories of the 1967 Six Day War and then again after the 1973 Yom Kippur War when the Arab world was sent reeling and vulnerable with absolute no means of opposing any Israeli demands. After both of these Arab initiated wars, Israel had proven their ability to defeat the combined militaries of the Arab nations on all borders and had expanded the regions she controlled to not only include both the liberated, that is liberated from illegal Arab occupation, Shomron, renamed West Bank by Jordan, and Gaza, which was held by Egypt, but also the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula and the eastern banks of the Suez Canal. That was a different time when Israel was seen as the underdog overcoming outrageous odds through grit and determination and deserving of respect. Arab financed and leftist supported anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel propaganda has moved the entire argument from the Arab world against tiny Israel to the military state of Israel which is run by the Mossad and the IDF has conquered the nation of Palestine and victimized the destitute population ever since. When did Israel conquer this nation called Palestine? Well, do not try and confuse the debate, everybody knows they did and that solves it. But there has never been a nation of Palestine, let alone an Arab nation of Palestine. Nonsense, you are simply copying the Zionist lies, they have used their control of the media to tell their lies. These are the conversations which happen when one bothers to actually challenge the Arab propaganda, especially trying to get to the truth at any of the various campuses ‘Hate Israel Weeks or Months” which are held annually on so many major college campuses. How do we know this, guess.

 

The story has been altered such that Israel has been cast as the bully and plain evil. This has found fertile ground with those who are prone to anti-Jewish suspicions. These exist throughout the extreme edges of the political spectrum both left and right, which under the current slide to the far left, this has started to become a situation which has posed a problem for Israel. The fact is, that there is a relatively conservative, who ten to fifteen years ago would have been considered slightly left of center, as President in the White House. He has initiated some actions concerning the Middle East which have been considered to be very pro-Israel, but this is not entirely accurate as every one of these acts have been to normalize the situation with a context of the realities under which any decision in any of the international courts would be forced to reach because of the actual and honest standings of the Israeli claims over the propaganda everyone is being fed. For a small peek behind the curtain, please take our kind invitation to read for yourself a copy of the Court Ruling from the decision made by the Third Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Versailles in a case brought by the PA against the French companies Alstom and Veolia for building Jerusalem’s light rail system. Their final decision was also a warning to the PA that Israel has the sole claim to all of Judea and Samaria and that they would do best not to take this into any court of law. Furthermore, in an earlier case brought before Egyptian Judge, Justice El Araby, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ), who sat in judgement as part of the panel which heard the case where the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) sought an advisory opinion in 2003 from the ICJ on the legality of the security barrier erected by Israel; the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others, including Mahmoud Abbas and the whole of the PA, that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

 

We hope that taste was a sufficient piece of reality to chew upon. The International Law is based on treaties, not on popular opinions or propagandas or feelings but on that which is written and accepted as law. In the case of Israel, the law has to do with the British Mandate which promised all, that is every last square millimeter, of the land between the Jordan River west to the Mediterranean Sea belongs to the Jewish State, Israel. This is all written in very specific language in the Mandate System under the League of Nations and adopted by the United Nations as enforceable under Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. These are the truths under which courts are forced to use for their rulings which are not aligned with what is portrayed as the popular opinion. This is the way it is conveyed despite polling of the American people shows a comfortable majority support Israel. The reason for some nervousness within Israel is that Israel has become a polarized and partisan subject where the Republican Party, by overwhelming numbers, support Israel while the Democrat Party splits far closer to an even split and sliding away from their former position as friends of Israel. This is a direct result of the Democrat Party slide to the far left such that many are finding that the Democrat Party has left them and gone into some place which they see as dark and ominous. The problem is that the American population is still split fairly evenly between the two parties and the entire political spectrum has shifted considerably to the left, that is both parties such that true conservatives have found that they are standing without any party which supports their beliefs.

 

What does any of this really have to do with Israel and the potential realities, if any, of a coming “Deal of the Century” from the Administration of President Trump? The reality is that these are adjustments where the United States has all but terminated funding for the Palestinian Authority and completely abandoned UNWRA and removed all recognition for the Palestinian Arab “refugees” who were born after 1948 and in specific cases 1967 as President Trump has stated that the Palestinian Arab refugees are not a special breed of refugee where their status is hereditary and passes from parents to offspring to their offspring to their offspring and presumably on-and-on into perpetuity. President Trump ended this claim and defunded UNRWA who gave the support structure for this ruse. These decisions are of a Presidential nature which means that they have a shelf-life. Just like the JCPOA, the Iran Nuclear Deal, which as a Presidential agreement, it only was valid as long as whoever is the President agreed to honor it. This is also true for these decisions made by President Trump and should he lose to a Democrat Party candidate in 2020, then these decisions could be immediately overturned, and likely would be so overturned immediately after the inauguration. We can likely be assured that Hillary Clinton was the last Democrat Party candidate for President of the United States who could even be cast as potentially pro-Israel, and we have our doubts about her. Even should President Trump be reelected, after the 2024 election on January 20, 2025 (or there abouts) there will be a new President and they might decide that these decisions were far too controversial whether they be Democrat or Republican. So, the Israeli government, specifically those in leadership positions, need realize that the situation facing them is about as favorable as it is probably ever going to get. This means that any ideas which they might have to take advantage of these events have a sell-by date and that might be coming sooner rather than later.

 

Israel has not been in a position where most of the power was in her hands since the early 1980’s if not even earlier. Just as then, this will not be a permanent situation and waiting can only waste yet one more golden opportunity. Waiting for President Trump to come forward with his “Deal of the Century” may actually work against Israeli interests. This is doubtful, but President Trump will be forced simply by political realities to provide something for the Arab side which could eventually become yet another threat to Israeli security and continued peace. Israel needs to remember all the promises she had received through the years from Presidents claiming to have their back. For every one of those promises, it seems that there are a couple of knives in their back right about where they were patted when promised that they had the Israeli leader’s back and that of the nation and her people. It is well past time that Israel simply acted in her own behalf, on her own behalf, and using the fact that she is the real power in the region as the backing for her decision. This does not mean that Israel should act with complete disregard for the Palestinian Arabs who were merely Arabs until 1964 and the great idea forged by the KGB to adopt the name of Palestinian as they realized that there was a long history of Palestinians in the region, who were the Jews as this is how the Jews were called during the British Mandate period which began in 1922 after World War I. What were the Arabs referred to as during this time? Well, they were called Syrians, Iraqis, Egyptians, Jordanians or simply Arabs and the Jews were Palestinians because it was only the Jews who had a presence in Jerusalem and the surrounding regions since almost pre-historic times. The Jews were the people who resided in the region when the Romans changed its name from Judea to Syria Palaestina to remove any reference to the Jews as they were attempting to destroy the Jewish People, something often tried but never with any success thankfully. The Romans changing the area’s name Judea to Syria Palaestina was exactly the same as when Jordan in occupying the Shomron which is made up of Judea and Samaria was renamed West Bank to remove the historic Hebrew names. They chose to adopt the name of Palestinians was such that they could claim the entire history of the Jewish People in the Holy Land which they have done with a well funded propaganda campaign. The entire story of Palestinian Arabs is largely a phantasm, wisps of smoke entwined with mirrors, something which vanishes with even the slightest introduction of actual history and facts. The demonizing of Israel, though, is a political position which has gained much validity largely due to the great amounts of funding behind these positions.

 

This is the reason why Israel needs to act while they have an upper position and the support from the White House. Should the “Blue Wave” become a reality in the upcoming midterms, any attempts by the White House to act will be severely crippled as the Congress will immediately start investigations, beyond the Mueller farce, and possibly bring charges under Articles of Impeachment. All of this would take over the attention of the White House and especially the man in the Oval Office and Israel could rapidly be placed on the back burner which could allow the Congress to undo much of the funding changes which have altered the situation. Things could change rapidly and any change would more likely be against the Israelis best interest and even return everything to the situation faced before President Trump moved the deckchairs. Israel needs to move in her own interests and remember that any deal brought forth by outside interests will very likely demand that Israel make a compromise which could, according to promises, be undone by Israel if things went awry. Israel was given this exact promise when she agreed to the Gaza pullout which made over eight-thousand Israelis instantly homeless and jobless thrown from their communities and placed around the country in temporary housing where some still languish. Their entire life’s work was torn to shreds by the Arabs and within two years Gaza was taken over by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iranian proxies who have provoked three wars and are currently attempting to press another war. Gaza has been rioting regularly at least every Friday and sometimes straight through some weeks. The current threat, as much of the world media has stopped reporting, have been breaches of the border with the IDF being attacked with Molotov cocktails, grenades and other weapons. Yes, the Gazan Arabs are throwing grenades at the IDF, real grenades and homemade grenades. The question is, does it really matter whether the grenades were made in Gaza workshops or supplied by Iran when, as happened just a day or two ago, a soldier is injured requiring hospitalization? If I were the unfortunate young IDF soldier who woke on a stretcher heading for a hospital to be treated, where the explosive devise, the grenade, was constructed really is not much of a concern, will the soldiers lose a limb, as had happened to others before, or will they leave the hospital whole. This IDF soldier will recover and return to their unit whole, thank Hashem.

 

Israel cannot afford another Gaza which is a definite probability should the Arabs, whether it is Abbas, Jordan, or some new person chosen by President Trump and the Arab states presumably aiding this process, be placed governing an area within the region which international law has reserved presumably for Israel, one has to ask how long before Hamas or other Jihadist entity takes over through a coup or other violent revolt? The answer is if not almost immediately or it might take a year, two years, or five years, does when really matter? Should such an entity get control in the Shomron where some Arab towns and regions overlook Tel Aviv and sit close to major Israeli roadways (see images below), these are the graphic realities which after any compromise could become a frightening reality. The farm sitting overlooking a major Israel thoroughfare could cause that stretch of road to become too dangerous to be used simply by teens using slings to hurl rocks striking vehicles in their windshields for an hour or for fifteen minutes and then fleeing before security police arrive one or twice a week, that is all it would take. Simple rockets, Katyusha which are easily made in any metal shop, are depicted in the next picture and central Tel Aviv is within the range of these simple rockets. Further, these rockets do fly fairly straight when constructed well and as they could be fired from places with line-of-sight, they can adjust fire until they strike their desired target. Even the beaches are within the range of these simple rockets, and should the Arab region also have any lands bordering the Jordan River, then any and every form of weaponry and missiles could be provided to allies of Iran even if such required tunneling beneath the Jordan River itself. The reality is that should Israel not have complete security control over the entirety of the Shomron, then whatever area, no matter how small, which is relegated for autonomous Arab control, Israel would be facing a threat centered in the heart of the country in the identically same lands from which the Israelis thrice chased the Romans from within the entirety of Israel, no matter however briefly, they defeated Rome from these very hills.

Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu in particular, needs to take all required steps to assure the permanence and defensibility of Israel, her people and her future for perpetuity. There is no reason for the Israeli leadership not to act because there will never be a better friend who will have the back of Israel in the future, not even if Vice President Pence, a true and longtime friend of Israel, could be as strong as President Trump has been with his actions. Another thing is that President Trump is not a political individual who is stuck within the normative parameters as any politically driven President would end up being, and this allows him to act completely outside the otherwise normal manners. His actions thusfar have proven this in absolutely positive manner and these gains require being reinforced and made into a permanent situation through reciprocal Israeli actions. Only if there have been explicit further actions described as well as a believable and feasible final situation which is completely and totally adequate in providing for all future Israeli security, can patience be the preferred Israeli position. It would be a far worse situation should the Trump initiatives become opposed by the Arabs states and result in them turning into an interruptive force where they completely back leaving Mahmoud Abbas in place and no permanent change to the situation as in such an atmosphere, any Israeli actions would become less probable to succeed. Israel needs to strike while they are in an advantageous position and not allow things to turn in any unpredictable way. Unfortunately, we do not expect Prime Minister Netanyahu to take anything which might be read as provocative, bold or as advantageous as we have been advising.
