Personal Observations of Reactions to Jerusalem Recognition

 

Amongst my friends and acquaintances the most used comment boils down to, “It is about time,” or similar comment. The next most stated idea was, “Wow, somebody finally noticed,” along with, “At last,” or similar sarcastic comment. But most of my friends and associates are relatively to extremely religious Israeli Jews, many from the English-speaking world as well as a good number of native Israelis. The reaction of my social circle was fairly even and supportive of the idea of the United States recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and that President Trump added its historic importance as such was an added bonus. This did not alter the opinion of those amongst us who supported Hillary Clinton from still hoping Trump would be charged with some, any form of malfeasance, preferably one worthy of impeachment any more than it changed the minds of his supporters. The reaction in our little corner of Israel is generally that this was wonderful and that it was about time.

 

The most interesting and disconcerting commentaries have been those of the media. They appear claiming that the entire world, particularly the United States, Canada and Europe had best brace themselves readying for waves of Islamic terror attacks. The media have almost amplified the threats that recognizing the three thousand year history of Jerusalem being the Capital City for Israel. What is even more interesting is that Jerusalem has been the capital only of the Jewish people and no other have ever declared any actual importance to Jerusalem and most of the media has all but ignored that. Their specific focus has been to press the criticism that by recognizing a three-thousand plus year old reality, President Trump has painted a target on every American’s back making them specific targets because of his recognizing Jerusalem and starting the moving of the embassy there. We all watched some of the media coverage the other day and it was horrific. Believing the newscast one would believe that all of Israel was ignited in random and terrorist violence and that people were locked into their homes scared to go outside. In our little corner of Israel, not a blade of grass is out of place and life continues on unchanged, unaltered. The days after President Trump made his supposedly universe-altering proclamation appear unchanged from the days leading up to his announcement with only the brighter look on people’s faces and a new vigor in their steps. Have there been violent demonstrations? Sure, as many of you have seen on your televisions as have we.

 

Fortunately, these pictures on your television sets have been the exception, nowhere near the rule. Most lives in Israel remain unchanged, owed much to our blessings. The riotous demonstrations we saw were pretty much restricted to the Temple Mount and Old City neighborhoods as well as Bethlehem and other areas in Gaza, Judea and Samaria and even then restricted to Arab neighborhoods. There have been spotty reports of demonstrations in some of the Arab Israeli Cities in addition to the Arab regions previously reported. None of these were unexpected as Hamas, Hezballah, Fatah, PLO, the PA, and Islamic Jihad had agreed to have three days of rage. Once this had been announced, it really made little difference whether President Trump had made his expected speech as there would have been no stopping the Arab populations from committing to the rioting we have witnessed. One British Newspaper reported a sensationalized “protests sweep Muslim world.” Their reporting noted that possible thousands demonstrated in Amman, Jordan and Cairo, Egypt and a few other large Islamic cities, but the general firestorm had not erupted worldwide as predicted before the announcement. Factually, much of the explosive reactions to President Trump and his earth-shaking announcement have failed to materialize. Check the image below and see the pattern of terror attacks from 9/11 through to sometime in 2015 or 2016. After viewing this image, kindly explain how terrorism could actually be worse. The nation completely covered at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea are Israel and Lebanon and the other heavy area is slightly but just as serious as it nearly covers Iraq. There continues to be terror attacks striking inside many of the areas covered by several attacks already as if you live in an area where terrorism had occurred, then those same areas are more likely to be struck by renewed violence. But as far as general mayhem throughout the globe, that will not be occurring.

The reality is that the majority of the violence will be restricted to predominantly Islamic regions and neighborhoods. This is both an unfortunate and, in another way, a fortunate result. The unfortunate result is that the Arab and Muslim worlds will erupt into violence over one nation recognizing one of the oldest surviving capital cities, Jerusalem. Let us think about the concept that Tel Aviv is the real capital city of Israel. The nation of Israel is a three-thousand year old concept with her capital as Jerusalem since before 1000 BCE and which existed for a thousand years while Paris, London, Berlin and Washington D.C. were all swamplands or forests, completely undeveloped or, at best, a small village. Not only had Jerusalem existed but was one of the major cities where a number of trade routes interconnected making it an important city. King David was the second King of a united Hebrew, Jewish State who moved the Capital City from Hevron, and Jerusalem remained the capital of the Jewish people ever since. That is over three-thousand years. Jerusalem is mentioned throughout the Jewish Bible, more than any other holy book. The Old City of Jerusalem has buildings older than the United States while the western areas of Jerusalem are a modern and vital city with modern buildings and commodities which leads to quite a vital difference. You have shops from the Shuk with its open booths to a modern three level mall with everything one would expect from a modern mall. Jerusalem is definitely the city where one can find everything, be it old or new, and depicts the difference that is Israel, an ancient land with some of the most amazing and newest innovations and inventions from cell phones to cherry tomatoes. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv was founded on April 11, 1909, which makes it one-hundred-eight and a half years, just a little younger than Jerusalem itself by just over three-thousand years. Quite a disparity and one which really gives Jerusalem and her claim as capital of Eretz Yisroel a slight advantage and we are glad to accept the United States in joining our reality even if it took a controversial President to drag them forward to recognize the past.

Rebroadcast of Abbas is Declaration of War

 

Below is the Palestinian Media Watch noting of the rebroadcast of Mahmoud Abbas’s call to arms, which began the rioting on the Temple Mount from a number of years ago. Today, like then, it came after Arab Terrorists attacked to murder innocents on or around the Temple Mount. This time the rebroadcast came after the assassination of two police officers and the wounding seriously of a third after which Israel closed the Temple Mount for almost one and a half days, reopening it on Sunday evening. Before Abbas, we include the initial attack itself as caught on Temple Mount entrance monitors with commentary and identification of terrorist and the two officers who were murdered. There was a third police officer wounded in the upper torso and extremities before the three terrorists, the two seen in video plus a third terrorist, and all three were quite well armed. We will include some of the pictures taken of their weapons used in this assault, and it was a military style assault with military styled weaponry.

The actions taken by the Fatah Party, simply another executive branch of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), which is a universally recognized terrorist group from which the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) was formed in order to use political maneuvers and media in the war to eliminate Israel, once again dipped into the media and rebroadcast the Abbas incitement video. This attack was actually an enforcement by terrorism of the UNESCO denoting the entirety of the Temple Mount to be a Palestinian Heritage Site discounting two thousand years of Christian history and four thousand years of Israelite and Jewish history. This attack also came on the heels of another UNESCO ruling naming the Cave of the Patriarchs in the exact same cave as the cave and field bought by Abraham as told in Genesis 23 with the particular necessary conversations included here.

 

And Sarah died in Kiriath Arba, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to eulogize Sarah and to bewail her.
And Abraham arose from before his dead, and he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying,
“I am a stranger and an inhabitant with you. Give me burial property with you, so that I may bury my dead from before me.”
And the sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,
“Listen to us, my lord; you are a prince of God in our midst; in the choicest of our graves bury your dead. None of us will withhold his grave from you to bury your dead.”
And Abraham arose and prostrated himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth.
And he spoke with them, saying, “If it is your will that I bury my dead from before me, listen to me and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar.
That he may give me the Machpelah Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property.”
Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth, and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth, of all those who had come into the gate of his city, saying,
“No, my lord, listen to me. I have given you the field, and the cave that is in it, I have given it to you. Before the eyes of the sons of my people, I have given it to you; bury your dead.”
And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land.
And he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, “But, if only you would listen to me. I am giving the money for the field; take {the money} from me, and I will bury my dead there.”
And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him,
“My lord, listen to me; a {plot of} land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is it between me and you? Bury your dead”
{This was estimated to be at least double the required going price for this land even had it been prime land instead of a cave which cannot be used for planting and a field still not yet cleared with rocks strewn and trees still standing}
And Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, accepted by the merchant.
{Abraham paid the first price mentioned without barter and in silver, not local coinage such as to differentiate this particular burial site from the local people’s burial site such that no person could claim he was a Canaanite.}
And so the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, facing Mamre, was established {in Abraham’s name as a possession}. The field and the cave that was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, which were within its entire border around.
{All the land and cave were} to Abraham as a possession before the eyes of the sons of Heth, in the presence of all who had come within the gate of his city.
And afterwards, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre, which is Hebron, in the land of Canaan.
And the field and the cave within it were established to Abraham as burial property, [purchased] from the sons of Heth.

 

The depth of the telling of this negotiation was deliberate and done so as to establish that Sarah’s burial plot and what was to become Abraham’s family burial plot was and would forever remain property of his family and the tribe of people he was destined to establish and not just another Canaan burial place. It was also done in order to show that Abraham paid a fair, actually more than fair, price for the lands and did so in the sight of many witnesses who were named such that one could ask and receive verification of this sale. This is part of the reason that the UNESCO decision has been such an insult to Jews as well as Christians and would be tantamount to rewarding the British with ownership of Valley Forge as their Heritage Site or declaring the Gettysburg Battle Fields and Cemeteries as solely a Confederate Heritage Site, even more so if there were still those holding that they be permitted to establish a Confederate States of America and were using terrorism to force the United States out of Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and, for good measure, Florida as well as the Gettysburg Memorial Battle Site (see map below). This is pretty much what is claimed by the Palestinians with the exception that there were no Palestinian Arabs anywhere in history before 1964 when Yasser Arafat with assistance of the KGB, the Soviet Union and soon thereafter much of Europe worked in conjunction to invent them with the founding of the PLO. Imagine the scenario of the map below except there had only been the Battle of Gettysburg and otherwise no Confederacy until they formed an organization, a terror group to demand these lands from the United States because they said it belonged to them as Confederate citizens.

The real problem now will be if there is any further incitement, it will be followed by weeks of violence all of which the PA will be blaming Israel for causing the violence because Israeli police killed three poor Palestinian Arabs on the Temple Mount after they had done nothing on the Temple Mount other than run when the police chased them with their weapons drawn. That actually would technically be accurate as the murders took place just off the Temple Mount and the Israeli police were murdered outside the Temple Mount at the entranceway and the third wounded just beyond that and then the terrorists ran back to the Temple Mount attempting to make it likely to the al-Aqsa Mosque where they would have joined the others inside and been protected and concealed from the officers and have gotten away until they were identified. The problem many of these young terrorists have is bragging rights and the use quite vociferously thereof that with any amount of detective work the perpetrating terrorists are found out and arrested, or killed in a violent gun fight where they and their protectors will attempt to take as many with them as possible even to include fellow Arabs such that it can be claimed that the Israelis murdered people who had nothing to do with the terror strike near the Temple Mount. Imagine a trio of criminals murder two policemen and wound a third having lunch inside a Waffle House and then run outside heading for a clubhouse one block away and after they shoot at other officers responding to the injured officer’s call for help they are killed. Then somebody starts shouting as a crowd gathers that these victims of police brutality were gunned down for nothing more sinister than running to get to their club house and the police swarmed upon them with their weapons drawn and that was why they pulled their weapons, simply in an attempt to protect themselves.

 

Now there is a community member who is respected and has an office as a liaison at City Hall and he had made an impassioned speech about an instance where the area citizens had swarmed into the streets blocking traffic and refusing to permit anybody not from their area to pass and claimed they were taking over this area and this resulted into three weeks of violent rioting and somebody played this speech repeatedly and posted it to the community Facebook page. What would you think the probability would be of renewed riots in this area that was already known to be violence prone? That is what has been put in place in Jerusalem at the Temple Mount and the areas east of the Temple Mount at present. That is what the rebroadcast and posting of the Abbas speech from 2014 is tantamount to doing and when the rioting starts, round up the usual culprits from Europe, Peace Now, B’Tselem, Partners for Progressive Israel, Rabbis for Human Rights and the rest of the myriads of largely European financed anti-Israel NGOs registered in Israel as human rights supporters and enforcers. What is unique about all of these people is they have had absolutely little if any mention of Daesh (Islamic State) or Bashir al-Assad in Syria or Boko Haran in Nigeria and surrounding countries, the violence from the Sudan against South Sudan, Turkey’s war against the Syrian and Iraqi Kurdish people or any of the near countless other atrocities. They only come out to enforce purported human rights for terrorists and anybody desiring the destruction of Israel. That is what the showing of the rebroadcast of Abbas is intended to produce. Oh, and as far as incitement by Palestinian leadership, well who best to comment than Mahmoud Abbas himself below in a series of videos filled with incitement.

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few items which require stating to give the full meaning of the above videos to define and crystalize the words by Mahmoud Abbas. He refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish State but demands that his state be absolutely Judenrein, wiped clean of every Jew and no Jew even permitted to enter for any reason. This would deny the Jewish People of the right to visit numerous Holy Sites such as the Cave of the Patriarchs, Jacob’s Tomb, Rachel’s Tomb, all of Biblical Hevron, Jericho, Biblical Shechem (Nablus) and numerous other Biblical locations. Further, he demands that all five to eight million, the number keeps fluctuating, Arab refugees into Israel flooding Israel with a huge number of Arabs raised on Jew hatred who would outnumber the Jews in Israel. How exactly can Israel allow such a presence that would deny them the right to remain and likely immediately rise up to murder every Jews from within Israel. The reality is that he does not desire a state for “his” people but to destroy Israel and any hope for a Jewish State. Denial of the right for the Jew to have their state in Israel is anti-Semitism despite all claims to the contrary. Denying that the Jewish People be permitted their own lands would be identical to denying the Chinese to a right to their own nation demanding it be given to its former Japanese conquerors or the Greek not be permitted their own lands as they were conquered by Rome and the Persians thus it should be divided between these nations, Italy and Iran. Denying the Jewish People to reestablish themselves in their ancient homelands and only the Jews being denied such is anti-Semitism. We would like to note another people who have liberated their ancient lands, though not quite as ancient as Israel, and that is the Kurds who have liberated the northern area of Iraq and the neighboring Kurdish region in northeastern and northern Syria. Allowing them independence would be the correct and proper thing for the United Nations and the nations of the world to recognize, which is why it will probably never happen. We here at BTC support the establishment of a Kurdistan as it was promised the Kurdish People by the British until oil was discovered near Mosul and then the deal was broken and the land given to one branch of King Feisal’s family while the other side was granted to his other son called today Jordan. Jordan was initially to be the Arab half of the British Mandate and covered 78% of the Mandate, which is why Abbas is always demanding his owed 22%, as he really believes that only the Arabs are permitted to reside on any of the lands in the entirety of the Middle East and much of Northern Africa. Abbas’s view of the world, carried out to its final reckoning, would have a world that existed of Arab Muslims and then only his clan and those of a few close allies, if they were fortunate and did not ask for much. Finally, Abbas uses the Muslim idea of Taqiyya which the figure below defines nicely. It is required of Muslims by their religion as defined in the Quran to use deceit and deception in order to further Islam and that any fabrication or lie told to an infidel, a non-Muslim, is not a lie because the truth is only Muslims are permitted to demand truth and infidels live in the world of lies because if there were a world full of only truths, it would have only Islam.

He does not believe in Islam beyond the means it provides him for political and financial gain. The Palestinian people receive over half of all funding for presumed victimized people and refugees and yet are amongst the poorest of all refugees. Yasser Arafat’s wife continues to reside in a wealthy condominium area of Paris and vacations regularly in the Riviera and lives a lavish lifestyle. The two retiring leaders of Hamas have individual wealth of many billions of dollars each. Mahmoud Abbas and his three sons are each extremely wealthy having profited from nearly every construction contract and other contracts given to the numerous firms they control. Some of these firms are paid handsomely to provide services, which are no more demanding than appearing at state functions and eating well. Mahmoud Abbas has planned on building himself a residential complex, perhaps palace would be more fitting a term. The expansive building will feature helipads, meeting rooms, an auditorium, a large and well-appointed residence and barracks for a small company of troops who will secure the residence from any disturbance. The estimated cost of this complex (picture below) is around thirteen million dollars; we believe that is a very low estimate. Finally, is Abbas such a loved leader that he requires a small company, Force 17, to guard his residence from intruders? Apparently, that is a necessity.

Troubles Begin in Thinking Islam Must be Repaired by Islam

 

There is a theme that in order for Islam to find some means of coming to grips with modernity and make the changes necessary for it to coexist with the non-Islamic world instead of seeking to destroy all which is not Islam must be managed by those within Islam and not the remainder of the world. This is a great concept for those of us who are not Muslims as it frees us from any obligation to work to assist Islam in finding a new path. It allows those who are not Muslims to simply wipe their hands of the problematic situation and leave all the heavy lifting for those within the sway of Islam. Imagine if we had decided that the problem caused by the Nazis had to be solved by those who were part of the Nazi party et al. Where would such an idea, if followed by France, Britain, Canada and the United States have led? Well, it would probably not have been very pretty. There were those within the United States who thought that the entire Nazi war was a European problem and that it should be left to the Europeans to hash it out. Their logic was quite appealing as the United States just finished fighting a European War called, you will love this one, The War to End All Wars. These Americans, and many others who were on the fence or just tired of European catastrophic endeavors and waring for supremacy over one another, simply desired to be left at peace and unbothered with the world even if it was heading for Armageddon and going to Hades in a Handbasket. They were winning the popularist debate and had most Americans believing the European War was no business of the United States, as it would never come to American shores, it was not their problem. Well, the attack on Pearl Harbor blew all that thinking right out of the water and propelled America into the war. Those who claim that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many in his Administration and the Congress and other leaders of business and society knew the attack was coming and did nothing to prevent it are missing the point. Had these leaders of the United States, both governmental and private, known about the coming attack, what were they supposed to do? Plead with Japan not to strike Pearl Harbor? The Japanese had already decided; so that was not going to work, as they would not alter their plans. Call for a draft before the attack and try to get some workable defense in place all but instantly? That would never have flown in Congress and even had they drafted the entire population, there would not have been sufficient pilots or aircraft to stop the attack. Once the Japanese decided to strike, the war was coming to America and there was nothing that could prevent that; so any venturing into excuses and what ifs is a waste.

 

There is a message in the run-up to America entering World War II, namely that some things are inescapable and the sooner this is realized, the sooner the problem can be addressed, solved, or, if necessary, eliminated and all at far less cost in treasure and manpower. Imagine if Britain had listened to Winston Churchill’s warnings when he was telling them of the coming conflagration and the inevitability of war with the Nazis. Imagine if instead of sending Neville Chamberlain to the Munich conference the British had sent Winston Churchill. The conference would not have reached any agreement, Czechoslovakia would not have been gifted to the Nazis, and just maybe Germany would have been stopped as France and Britain kept their mutual defense pact with the Czechoslovakian friends instead of simply whimpering as the Nazis were gifted half and rolled over the remaining half soon thereafter without any response from Czechoslovakia’s so-called allies. Hitler would have been stopped cold as soon as he had entered Czechoslovakia instead of months later after building his war machine using the existing arms factories he conquered as part of taking Czechoslovakia. Instead the war came after the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact in which the Nazis and Soviet Union divided up Poland between them and rolled across their respective borders crushing the Polish cavalry and military meeting in the middle and that was the end of Poland with their prisoners taken to their respective conquers’ camps and many were simply executed as the Nazis and Soviets both viewed the Polish people as inferior and unworthy of consuming oxygen. This led to the most devastating war in which an unbelievable number of the resultant casualties were civilians far exceeding the totals and percentages of previous wars (see comparison between World War I and II below). It is startling that many historians look at World War II and realize that much of the death and destruction could have been avoided and the leaders of nations who could have intervened early and, by taking the bull by the horns, have stopped Hitler cold preventing his attempt at world conquest and the eradication of the Jewish People. What if the world is approaching another of those critical points where unfolding history is about to hit a divergence and the next couple of years, maybe months or even weeks, could decide the entire future of humanity? We could not be more serious.

Manchester, Paris, Brussels, San Bernardino, Orlando, Nice, and decades of terrorist activities in Israel plus any others anybody cares to fill in are but the latest wave of Islamist attempts to conquer the world in the name of Allah in order to fulfill the prophesy from the Quran, the part written in Medina to be exact (for more on the bifurcated Quran, please read our short article as an introduction Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? which has included numerous helpful links in the comment section added by our readers). The initial Islamic attempt in world conquest began in the year 622 under Muhammad for the first decade and then Rashidun and then the Umayyad caliphs covering the first wave of Islamic expansion (see map below). This has been followed by other waves with near continuous aggressions of varying degrees. Some of the history might be of interest to many Westerners.

If one were to ask most Americans when was the first terrorist attack on the United States in the modern era, meaning the past one hundred years, what would be your guess. Most people would likely claim it was the attack on the World Trade Center which then requires asking which attack. Too many would then answer the one on 9/11, of course. That is the state of history knowledge for far too many Americans. The truth is there was one before the 9/11/2001 hijacking of four American airliners crashing two, one each, into the World Trade Towers; one into the Pentagon and the last one was crashed by the passengers into a field not far outside of Pittsburgh upon learning of the intentions of the hijackers. There was a first attack on the Towers on February 26, 1993, when Ramzi Yousef and Eyad Ismoil drove a truck filled with 1,336 pounds of explosives into the parking garage under Tower One with coconspirators Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal A. Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin, and Ahmed Ajaj all led by the Blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. But even that is not the initial attack since the start of the Twentieth Century as for that we need go back to June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, at 12:15 AM when Sirhan Sirhan Assassinated Democrat Party frontrunner candidate for President of the United States Robert F. Kennedy. The public was told that Sirhan was insane and simply was out of control, crazy, demented or anything other than terrorism by a Palestinian sympathizer born in Lebanon who identified with Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian cause and murdered Robert Kennedy because he supported Israel. Yes, the truth will set you free and the assassination of Robert Kennedy was an act of terrorism aimed at Israel and the United States by an Arab Palestinian supporting terrorist.

 

But when it comes to conflicts with Islam and the United States there is an even earlier precedent. The United States fought two wars with Islamic forces known as the Barbary Pirates who were stealing ships through piracy demanding tribute from the owning nations and taking the crews as slaves. The major slave trade in the Mediterranean was called white slavery to differentiate it from the rest of slavery in the African continent where the Arabs and Muslims played a critical role in acquisition of the African natives which were then transferred to the coast where they were bought by European slavers and then sold to ship captains who would transfer them for trading across the world. The Barbary pirates collected tributes from every nation and got more and more greedy and at some point, the United States came to the decision they were not going to be blackmailed any more. Under President Thomas Jefferson, probably the greatest of all isolationists of the Founding Fathers, the United States Navy and Marines fought the Pasha of Tripoli Yusuf Karamanli after refusing to pay the demanded tribute of $225,000, which led to his declaring war on the United States. You could say that President Thomas Jefferson obliged him.

 

But wait, there’s more. After the United States had somehow managed to win the war of 1812 against Britain, the Barbary Pirates thought that the United States would be vulnerable and began their piracy again, demanding ransoms. The Regency of Algiers Mohamed Kharnadji who was followed by Dey Regency of Algiers Omar Agha insisted the United States resume paying tribute this time to Algiers as their ships now ruled the seas. President James Madison showed the same resolve as had Thomas Jefferson and again the Barbary Pirates were defeated. What is of interest, the Barbary Pirates never signed an actual surrender but instead insisted that any surrender was but a Hudna. Traditionally, a Hudna lasts a decade or until the forces of Islam believe they are capable of defeating their enemies. The Barbary Hudna lasted significantly longer than a decade but it appears that it is coming to its end and they believe that the United States is primed to fall right along with Europe, Israel, India and the remainder of the world is all ready for harvest and they are out to pick it clean.

 

Why, you might inquire, are they so dependent on using terrorism as a way to defeat the world? Well, the world has only themselves to blame for making it appear that terrorism is the route they can ride to total victory. They watched how through terrorism and a campaign of lies and propaganda they believe they are on the verge of destroying Israel and how the Europeans have all but folded before them with terrorism and infiltration leading the way. It is simply appearing to be working and so they will ride it for all it is worth. As long as the world remains in a coma ready to surrender over enduring any struggle, then Islam will continue to surge. The continued reaction to every terror attack by the European elite is to blame Israel and the growing anti-Semitism spreading across Europe, even ahead of and in excess to the numbers of Muslim refugees joining the already present Muslim populations. The excuse that the anti-Semitism is driven by Muslims sounds hollow when percentages of those holding numerous anti-Semitic tropes far exceeds the percentage of Muslims residing in most European nations with amongst the most threatening being Sweden, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. What has been amongst the most disturbing trends are the numbers of people in the developed world who blame Israel and Jews for the terrorism when it strikes their country. There are many who claim if only Israel would give the Palestinians and the Arabs what they demand, then their own nation would be fine and the terrorism would stop. Making this even more distressing is that many of these people know that what the Arabs and the Palestinians demand is all of Israel and the Jews within murdered to the last man, woman and child and they have little problem with such a sacrifice if it would keep them quiet for a few decades, enough to last for their lives as they care not about the future, just about the now and their future. Beyond their lives, they could not care less. The willingness to sacrifice Israel is made all the more evident when votes are taken in various United Nations agencies and in the General Assembly where European nations consistently abstain rather than support Israel against false claims and demands to wrench lands from Israel through votes most recently in UNESCO. The developed world can decide to end this awakening of Islam now or pay a horrific price once the majority of Muslim nations have developed nuclear weapons programs with each maintaining and equipping ICBM’s with twenty, fifty, hundred, three hundred, a thousand or more warheads. At what point will Europe and the United States awaken to the reality that Islam is incapable of taming Islam. The reason why is basic, the pacifists cannot prevent those intent on war from violence through passivity. Islam does not require every Muslim to Jihad, but every Muslim is required to either pay, house or otherwise support those who do commit to Jihad, or at the very least, lie in order to facilitate and occlude any evidence of Jihad. And the bad new is that Greater Jihad is warfare and violence to expand Islam until Islam is the only religion worshiped on Earth and Lesser Jihad is self-improvement and the juxtaposition of the two is Taqiyya (see below for definition). Lastly, there are those few true lunatics who feel if they cannot rule the entire world, then there should be no world for anybody in which to rule.
