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

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.

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.

Random Terror or Targeted Assassination?

 

Ari Fuld was felled by a 16-year-old a resident of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Yatta, south of Hevron named Khalil Jabarin. The murder took place near a shopping center in Gush Etzion, just south of Jerusalem. Forty-five-year-old Ari Fuld was stabbed in the back and as the terrorist fled, Ari managed to give chase and open fire on the terrorist, but he later was to succumb to his wounds. The immediate reaction was indicative of the life of Ari Fuld, a father of four from the town of Efrat in Gush Etzion and an IDF veteran where he was prone to act without thinking of himself first, as recounted in this story. The Hamas terror group, unsurprisingly, praised the terrorist responsible for the murder of Ari Fuld, calling Khalil Jabarin a hero and a martyr. Hamas released a statement which read in part, “We welcome the stabbing attack in Bethlehem, which coincided with the killings of our people during the March of Return.” They further added, “The attack makes it clear that our people wish to continue the Jerusalem intifada. To resist the occupation, by using all means necessary, is our legitimate right.”

The official Palestinian Authority news agency WAFA presented the terrorist who murdered Ari Fuld Sunday morning as a victim of an Israeli shooting playing down the inconvenient fact that he was shot after his commission of a terror attack stabbing Ari Fuld leading to the Israeli’s death. The story ran under the headline, ‘Israeli forces injure Palestinian near Bethlehem.’ We are just waiting to see if this story reaches outside of Israel and should it do so, it will be curious as to how it is presented. We are anticipating that in Europe the story will start with the Palestinian youth being shot by an activist Israeli who was prominent in the Settler Movement. After exhausting that lie, they might mention that the Israeli was the victim of a terrorist stabbing or they may simply leave his stabbing up to the reader to decide which came first, the knifing or the shooting. We can give them a hint, if the shooting came before the stabbing, then there would have been no stabbing, just one dead young man but here the shooter died and the stabber was merely wounded. The stabbing initiated the exchange as the stabber had run placing distance between himself and the shooting reply which in a state of shock was probably even less accurate. We also expect for European protests demanding that Khalil Jabarin, at the tender age of just 16, was likely not really responsible for his actions and it was the actions of Israel that brought on this act of frustration.

 

We have been to this dance before and know the tune all too well. NGOs such as the New Israel Fund, Students for Justice in Palestine, Adalah, BDS, Coalition of Women for Peace and a plethora of ‘Human Rights’ NGOs which are simply against Israel and working in concert with the Arab and Muslim worlds for the elimination of the Jewish State replacing it with a democratic state of all its citizens meaning the entirety of the former British Mandate where the populations of the Palestinian Authority, Gaza, UNWRA refugees and Jordan will vote with Israel in a democratic election one time for the new dictator of the lands from Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea. This will place the ballot before approximately seven million Jews and two million other minority religions against somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty-five-million Palestinian and Jordanian Arab Muslims. This has been the latest idea for a fair means of representing the Arabs as a whole in their dispute with Israel solved democratically. We think it sounds like twenty-five wolves and seven sheep deciding on what will be dinner, or should we say who will be dinner.

 

Ari Fuld was a well known man and easily recognizable in the areas around where he was murdered. He was a member of his community’s rapid response team, and IDF veteran, and an advocate for Israeli rights and the enforcement of the actual laws which meant that Area C was designated as Israeli and that Israel was not expected to return to the Green Line which has been referred to as the Auschwitz Borders. Anyone with even the slightest hint of intelligence with a knowledge of history know very well that the British Mandate placed the border between Jordan and Israel as the Jordan River and that is the legal border to this day. Until and unless Israel signs away her rights to these lands, as she did Gaza, there is no legal means of taking them away. Sure, the “Palestinian Authority has just submitted a claim where the PLO urged ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to meet with representatives of Khan al-Ahmar and Palestinian officials over the village’s fate,” according to Saab Erekat. He subsequently added, “We’re determined to pursue our fight in the UN Security Council, General Assembly and Human Rights Council and the International Court of Justice.” In response, US National Security Adviser John Bolton on Monday warned The Hague-based court not to go after Israel, stating, “We will not allow the ICC or any other organization to constrain Israel’s right to self-defense.” And of course, this would not be complete until we have two United Nations special human rights investigators commenting without any invitation stating, “Forced eviction constitutes a gross violation of the right to adequate housing under international human rights law. In addition, forcible transfer of people who are protected within an occupied territory is a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention, and amounts to a war crime under the 1998 Rome Statute.”

 

We wonder what everyone thinks of the European Union building substandard shacks which lack water, sewage, electricity, gas, roads or even floors in the ‘homes’ and then protesting when Israel removes these illegal structures which were never licensed or inspected during their construction (see images below with the top one the one they are taking to the ICC). One can only wonder what the reaction would be if an Israeli company with money from an NGO would build a ramshackle neighborhood just outside The Hague and let homeless vagrants occupy them and demand that Brussels straighten out these homes and fit them to all the utilities so these poor people can live there. We get the feeling Israel would be condemned for this ‘equally egalitarian effort’ which mirrors the European Union actions in Israel and would be referred to as a completely different situation. Of course it is, there are no Jews being threatened, thus it has no purpose but the ones in Israel are on the grounds of another city, border a major highway and pose a direct threat even to emergency reaction forces which would need to use that highway. But that is exactly why the European Union is supporting the Palestinian complaint as is the United Nations and it would have been likely that the United States would have gone with the Palestinians had not the election placed Trump in the White House.

The reason we brought up these ludicrous attempts to destroy Israel was simply because Ari Fuld was deeply involved in the Zionist efforts and it will be impossible to replace his energy and enthusiasm. He is going to be missed and remembered whenever action may be required as he was a man who would not sit still when Israel was threatened. It was because of his community efforts and acts reaching throughout the region that made him a target. This was not what it will be portrayed, a random stabbing, this was a targeted murder. This was how the Palestinian Authority, PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas and the plethora of Arab anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic groups and individuals work to have their side take the superior position. To get a feel for the loss Israel is feeling and his community as well as his family, simply search Ari Fuld on Google or whatever search engine and you can get an idea of the man but for a deeper understanding, simply visit his Facebook page as long as Facebook leaves it in place. Nothing you read or watch can fully explain this wonderful human being who was targeted because he loved Israel and the Jewish People.
