Various Thoughts of the Tunes of This Day

 

There are so many different and various things happening concerning Israel such that we decided we would just start writing and let if flow where it flows. Let us start with the idea that Israel is personally responsible for every and any genocidal conflict in the world. Israel must prevent Bashir al-Assad from wiping out his own people. Israel has to prevent Recep Tayyip Erdoğan from annihilating the Kurds, which would be nice if it would not involve the Russians. May we pile-on with the list and add the problems in Venezuela, the occupation of Tibet, the death hole that is North Korea, and every other place where peoples are suffering around the globe. These are the people who sprout the words from pouting lips speaking, “Tikkun Olam.” By this, they mean that Jews must, because of their tragic history and especially the Holocaust, the Shoah, the Jews must come to the rescue of every beleaguered people, and by the Jews, they mean Israel. Most of these Jews happen to live in places other than Israel, specifically the United States and Europe. These are Jews who often are at demonstrations for the Arabs claiming that the Israel they perceive is against everything they believe should be the core of Judaism. These people, as far as their belief system, are far closer to secular humanism and very far from Judaism.

 

The latest is the insistence, since the chemical attack in Syria, that Israel must end the carnage in Syria. Let us think this through, something we can be assured that these Americans and Europeans never bothered with following through. Syria is a meat grinder, on this we can all agree. Israel already treats anybody brought to their border at the Golan Heights. Israel has allowed each group to define what area they prefer to use and reached an agreement with everyone to respect these drop points. Israel provides free treatment to every person regardless of their status or other considerations and returns each to the exact place once healthy. Israel has provided these victims of the Syrian Civil War without charge with many being treated in the same place where we reside and our main BTC locations in Nahariya, at the Western Galilee Medical Center, which is the main hospital treatment center for much of the north of Israel (see image below). Some of these patients have required extreme care and long recuperation periods while others required long treatments for physical therapy and others were so badly injured they required multiple operations over months and then recuperation and other therapies. All of these have been provided at Israeli expense. This care has not been sufficient to please these preaching Tikkun Olam from afar. They demand that Israel also offer to allow thousands of Syria refugees to settle within Israel. Many of these people claim that such similar allowance would be the best solution to the Israel-Arab conflict. They claim if Israel would just allow for the Palestinians to have the State they demand with half of Jerusalem and allowed the few, five to eight-million, Arab Palestinian refugees to return to Israel everything would work out fine as Israel is a democracy and as such it solves all ills. They believe that an Israel with a majority population of Arab Palestinians would be safe due to democracy, and that once the Arabs form a ruling coalition without any Jews that the Jews would be safe and there would be no possibility of an Islamic State result. That is fine for these Americans and Europeans, but as Israelis, we have this demand that Israel survive as the Jewish State more than as a democracy where three wolves and two sheep decide on the menu.

But that is just the start of the craziness growing throughout the globe. There are those who feel the necessity to take their hatred of all things conservative, meaning all things Netanyahu and the ruling coalition in Israel which they cannot forgive for the sin of being capitalist instead of the perfect form of governance, social equality of communism, and claim that Israel has taken an insane amount of violence in their reaction to the perfectly innocent angels protesting with flowers in their hair peaceably in Gaza demanding that their lives be made better and their needs addressed by their occupying power, Israel and removing any blame for their situation from Hamas. Leading this insanity is none other than the socialist sweetheart of the far left, Bernie Sanders. His big claim is that disagreeing with Netanyahu does not make one anti-Semitic. He went into great depth about all the sins and gross negligence as well as the criminal actions at the Gaza border (see video below) in a long speech at the J-Street Conference. Senator Bernie Sanders believes that Israel is a blight to the planet and can only do harm because Israel does not follow his politics. He wants the United States to get fully involved in Syria and challenge al-Assad and his allies, Iran and Syria. This would bring the United States fully involved across the Middle East. Engaging with both feet and attempting to take charge of the entirety of the Syria conflict would cause the United States to be drawn into Iran as well and facing off Turkey preventing the genocidal assault against the entirety of the Kurdish population in Syria and likely following with Iraq and ending with the annihilation of the Kurds in Turkey leaving a mere remnant of this noble and ancient people.

 

 

The Kurds were promised a homeland just as were the Jews by the British and the British did all they could to prevent either population from attaining said statehood. The Jews declared their independence in 1948 and have fought numerous wars to protect their freedom. The Kurds made a mistake not declaring their independence after their decisive referendum declaring the desire for freedom and their own nation. The Kurds bent to the will of the United States State Department while the Jews went directly against the demands of the United States State department. What that says about the United States State department, we will leave that to our readers. The United States entering the conflagration which is Syria would result in the United States fighting in Iraq and then Iran and potentially facing off with Turkey and Russia. The worst consequence would be the obvious, World War III which might not require Russia as Iran easily could launch destructive nuclear attacks upon the United States including simple thermo-nuclear devices, EMP nuclear devices, Neutron Bombs, as well as chemical and biological weapons all easily delivered from their missile freighters or other Iranian ships, as told in this article, which are disguised as honest freight carrying ships and as such with their being flagged with licensing in various nations including Venezuela, Qatar, Nicaragua and even European licenses. How would one choose which ships to sink? We covered this more generally here. The final problem is how Putin might react to the United States playing in their flower garden which is Syria. That would promise to be potentially the greatest threat arising from a United States commitment to remove al-Assad.

 

The final item is the Palestinian Authority, which Mahmoud Abbas chose to use the PLO as the chair of his authority to speak, had doubled down on their demand that the United States can no longer be a guarantor of peace between Israel and anybody as Israel controls Trump. This is probably new to everybody in Trump’s Cabinet, both fired and newly hired, as it appears that at times even Trump does not control Trump. Still, the new threat from the PLO, which actually is logical, is that any peace plan which does not establish a second Arab state, unstated but obviously with Abbas at its head, is totally unacceptable as the Palestinian people in Jordan and the “West Bank” (Shomron), is a single people who must be granted two states. Only in the furtive insanity of Abbas does being one people mean they must have two nations. The interesting thing is the threat he made was that should any agreement not give the borders of the West Bank with half of Jerusalem as a Palestinian state, with him as King understood, will be rejected and if Jordan is involved in any way, the PLO will remove the Hashemite rulers of Jordan and then unite the Palestinian people of Jordan, along with those in the Palestinian Authority, into one nation under the rule of the PLO, placing him as King. This is the threat, they will not try to destroy Israel, they will destroy and conquer Jordan. What a wild deal is that. Well, we cannot say we have never seen this revolt before. We get a feeling that this outcome will be far more devastating than the September Surprise of 1970, Black September. There hopefully will come out of nowhere some alternative which most of the Shomron becomes Israeli natural borders. From there the migration will get assistance, if leaving now. Later such an offer will expire within one year. After that, any terrorist act from under your household, you leave, all of you. You are resident aliens under Israeli control. Do not look a gift-hoarse in the mouth.

Reason for Israeli Peace Deficit is Real

 

The Israeli peace deficit cannot be laid at the door of Israel and must never be blamed upon Israel. Every Israeli government desires peace with their only real difference is how much land they are willing to give away and how many Jewish citizens of whom they are willing to destroy their lives. The Gaza disengagement in 2005, overseen by American President George W. Bush, originally suggested by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, probably defined out by State Department lifers who appear to despise Israel and willing to work to her detriment at the drop of a hat, turned out to be the greatest mistake other than Oslo. The plan was also swallowed by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon who had signaled his willingness as far back as 2003 when the idea was first proposed. Ariel Sharon still had to found his own new party which included politicians from across the political spectrum all apparently desiring to have their names attached to this presumed historic and potential Nobel Peace Prize for those in leadership positions. This new party held onto a coalition by adding new leftward leaning parties and full left parties while dropping the most right wing parties including his old party of Likud. This new coalition was marginally, if at all, legal. The idea was to provide the Palestinian Authority (PA) complete unfettered control over the complete Gaza Strip to allow for them to show the world their ability to rule and provide for their people as normative governance. Gaza became a source of terrorist violence which only took a horrific turn for the worst after Hamas conducted a violent coup in 2007 having since started three wars with Israel and delivery only misery for the average Gazan while providing the high life and great wealth for the terror masters and criminal families. Hamas has spent most of the time launching rockets, artillery and mortars into Israel targeting mostly civilians while also tunneling beneath the border in order to launch terror attacks and kidnappings. The Gaza debacle is the greatest example of how far Israel has been willing to go for peace as well as the offers made for a comprehensive peace in 2000 by Prime Minister Ehud Barak and 2008 by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

So, with Israel apparently so willing to try to make peace, what are we referring to as an Israeli Peace Deficit? The deficit actually is that Israel honestly desires peace, as most democratic nations desire, but their terrorist, dictatorial “peace partner” PA only desire Israel totally destroyed and her population of Jews and Christians (and possibly the Arabs as well, as many are seen as apostates for living as Israeli citizens with full rights) murdered. The PA is the rebranding of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization, a universally recognized terrorist group) such that they could be passed off as working for peace. The problem is that the PLO was not the only terrorist group to gain some semblance of authenticity as there are also members from Hamas, Islamic Jihad and PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), terrorist organizations all, also have people within the areas controlled under the PA banner. Mahmoud Abbas was elected as President of the PA for a five year term in 2005 and is still in office without ever bothering to hold any scheduled elections. Abbas is also the leader of Fatah, the political party designed to rule the PA; chairman of the ruling committee, and the chairman of the PLO which was never decommissioned despite promises. Please allow us an aside to list a few of the firsts which can be traced to the PLO. They originated airline hijackings, suicide bombings, splintered into various new terror groups for spreading the blame, as well as first to attempt to overthrow two nations through civil wars in places where they never initially had any intent (Jordan and Lebanon), seek United Nations recognition, have the stated goal to destroy a nation instead of founding one and the first terror organization to invent a fake people out of whole cloth. The PLO has sewn violence in every place they ever touched and were the force whose starting of a civil war in Lebanon made the situation where Hezballah was then founded. They assassinated Cleo A. Noel, Jr., US Ambassador to Sudan, George Curtis Moore, US Deputy Chief of Mission to Sudan, Guy Eid, Belgian Chargé d’affaires to Sudan, Adli al Nasser, Jordanian Chargé d’affaires to Sudan, Sheikh Abdullah al Malhouk, Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Sudan as well as wife and four children when their Black September terror military attacked a party intending to target the American Ambassador during an official soiree at the Saudi embassy in Khartoum on March 1, 1973. They also used the same Black September groups under the supervision and financial arrangements of Mahmoud Abbas to attack the Munich Olympics and murdered the Israeli Olympic Team. Do we need to say anything more? We did not think so.

 

Now for the reality and everything which is the problem. Israel and the PA have opposite reasons to hold peace negotiations. Israel seeks peace while the only things the PA negotiators are seeking are concessions. This is why they always demand that Israel make concessions just to start holding peace negotiations. They then demand additional concessions from Israel often just to continue negotiations every week to ten days. They continue demanding concessions while refusing to offer a single concession or promise. They will then cut off the negotiations blaming the Israelis immediately when Israel finally refuses to offer additional concessions just for the displeasure of negotiating with people who seethe hatred. The PA will then pocket the concessions as if they were not dependent upon any actual agreement or peace. Then when another round of negotiations are being initiated the PA insists that Israel not only provide additional concessions, they are forced to recognize the previous set of negotiations as the starting position for the new negotiations. The PA is never seeking peace in any form; they are only interested in gaining concessions from Israel as part of destroying Israel in small steps and big steps. The small steps are the concessions while the big steps would be through reaching a peace agreement, then waiting for a period, a short period, and then resuming terrorist attacks and demanding Israel make concessions to end the new round of terrorism. When finally another peace is attained, Israel will have made concessions and her borders shrunk and this order of events would be continued until Israel is forced to such a small space that she is set for destruction.

 

Obviously, these two approaches to peace are complete and absolute opposites. They are the opposites as described by theorists of governments and their outlooks to events and especially concerning negotiations. First we need to establish the classifications of our two forms of governance. Israel is pluralistic, consensual democratic governance while the PA is fundamentalist, dictatorial and belligerent governance. Israel is willing to make exchanges and use compromise in order to attain peace. The PA refuses to make exchanges and seeks concessions and to take advantage of negotiations intending to weaken and eventually destroy Israel without ever an honest intention of peace. The PA has one intention when it comes to anything which be might referred to as peace negotiations, they use such events for solely one purpose, military advantages and military objectives through maliciously infused negotiations. The PA uses the word peace as a weapon with which to attain military objectives and advantages. Israel, on the other hand, when forced to use their military will use any advantage gained in order to attain peace. This was how Israel reached peaceful relations, though cold peaceful relations, with Egypt and Jordan. They defeated both in the Six Day War and made offers to return the gained land for peace and while Egypt accepted the Sinai Peninsula, they refused to take the return of their occupied Gaza and Jordan refused to retake possession of their occupied areas of Judea and Samaria and also revoked the Jordanian citizenship of every Arab residing in these lands including quite a number of former Jordanians who were forced to relocate into these areas.

 

The actions by both nations had the intention of causing difficulties for Israel. These rejections are what have led to the current situation which could label the acts of refusing their formerly occupied territories which legally belonged to Israel, placed belligerent Arab populations within the Israeli borders and has led to the deceptive negotiating performed by the PA in their deceptions using negotiations for military gains. The world has full knowledge of the PA deception but also revealed their true anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist proclivities which greatly aids the PA on the world stage with their actions, speeches and agreements reached at the initial 2001 Durban Conference in South Africa under the false heading, World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance. This was pretty much repeated at the ensuing Durban Conferences regardless of location. They all became immediate Israel hate fests leading to the United States and a few other nations joining Israel in refusing to attend these hateful events. These conferences have been echoed by votes concerning Israel, even the United States at times, in the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Leaked “Deal of the Century” Isn’t

 

The trial balloons have been slowly leaked to the people who matter on exactly what will be in the “Deal of the Century” President Donald Trump has been claiming he will finally bring peace between the Arabs and Israel, the Jews. These balloons are only partially inflated as the Trump Administration is playing their cards close to the vest. They are mostly floating the most contentious pieces to watch and see how everyone reacts. Fortunately for Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu and all the other important party leaders in the coalition and in the opposition will not need to say a word; they just have to allow Abbas and company to talk. The problem is that everybody in the opposition will jump onboard with the plan claiming that it is just about everything they have said was required for there finally to be peace with the Arab Palestinians and some may even ask why so many deviations from the pre-Six Day War Green Line* are part of the deal. Some might claim that Israel does not need the settlements. They will sound as if they are negotiators for the Palestinian Authority (PA) and not on the Israeli side at all.

 

There will be one outlier, Yair Lapid. His response will depend upon which side of the bed he got out of that morning, the right or the left. If he got out of bed on the right, then he will claim that the deal is overly balanced for the Arabs and that Israel would be required to make very painful, some might say dangerous, concessions but if the United States and the United Nations can guarantee what is promised, then Israel should accept the proposed borders with a few minor corrections. If he got out of bed on the left, then he will stand in near total agreement with Zehava Gal-On, the leader of the Meretz. Mr. Lapid’s claims that he stands to the right of Netanyahu only lasts as long as an election cycle, and once he is either in or out of the coalition he begins tailoring his speeches to fit the audiences. He is as if he has no honest opinions that are his own, but that is not entirely true. Yair Lapid was a supporter of Labor Party most of his life and his associates and friends are largely leftists. He has always and will always support the Two State Solution and a divided Jerusalem. The one thing which people need remember about Yair Lapid is that his former profession makes him a professional teleprompter reader and thus he can deliver completely opposite speeches at the same time with his address to the left side of the audience contradicting his address to the right side of the audience and as long as the one side cannot hear what he says to the other, then he will receive rounds of applause from both sides.

 

Now to the leaks and what we have been able to patch together from the little squeaks we have heard in the night. First and foremost, this plan obviously has not been run past the President or he saw it and decided to allow Abbas and company to reject it for him. The “Deal of the Century” leaked thusfar has State Department and Arabist writ large all over it. We can hear much of Exxon-Mobile, Saudi Arabian friend and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson echoing through and through these leaks. It is difficult to read the idea that the same President Trump who recognized Jerusalem as the rightful Israeli capital and is having the dedication for moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem this mid-May is calling for redividing it and giving the entirety of the Old City including the Temple Mount, City of David and the Mount of Olives Cemetery to the PA, as the leaks claim. Further, the rumors speak of only retaining some of the Jewish communities beyond the Green Line meaning that very probably many Israelis will need to be reintegrated into the areas of pre-Six Day War Israel. This will cause great hardships as the unfortunates who were displaced as a result of the Gaza withdrawal have yet to be fully returned as productive citizens with employment and an actual home. Those were people fully employed with homes and neighbors, with friends and fellow congregants, with real and happy lives as complete and full as any and now still seeking a place, any place which they can make into a home and find a restoration of a life with meaning and full of hope. Israel does not need another group of such refugees, even if they only count as a few thousand, though it is far more likely the plan is talking not even of tens of thousands but hundreds of thousands. That does not even include the Jewish population who has returned to their homes in the Old City which has surpassed one-third of a million. This also does not give any consideration of the Arabs in the Old City who have a limited citizenship within Israel with all the legal and social rights other than voting in national elections and the majority of whom have expressed their desire to never again be under the oppression of the PA.

 

Abbas Gives Peace This Much of a Chance

Abbas Gives Peace This Much of a Chance

 

Much of this plan resembles the plans which were presented by Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert which divided Jerusalem along the 1967 pre-Six Day War division which became the tactical position for Arab snipers to fire at every Israeli; Arab, Jew, Druse, Christian, Israeli, tourist or even space invaders, anything which was moving even to include dogs and cats as they were shooting for amusement as well as to murder as many hapless Israelis, preferably Jews, who came within their sights. The rest was partitioned once again along the 1949 Armistice Lines (Green Line) with minor adjustment and Israel was permitted to retain some of the more established communities (settlements) beyond the Green Line while the outposts and lesser communities (smaller or geographically isolated settlements) would be destroyed and their populations rendered homeless and would need to be relocated elsewhere within the Green Line presumably. This proposed solution is so obviously something proposed by the State Department who would give the Arabs the entirety of Israel if the power to decide such were ever granted them. This has been the cookie cutter response proposed by President after President and has met the same acceptance by Israel with reservations and outright dismissal by Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him. The leadership of the PA in particular and the Arabs in general is simple; they cannot accept any solution which does not completely erase all of Israel. They have promised their people and raised three generations of absolutists who were weaned on the destruction of Israel, educated to seek the destruction of Israel, sent to summer camps which were closer to basic training and commando training camps than recreational and there taught that Allah demanded of them the complete destruction of Israel. The result is there are a good number of young adults and teens who are completely inundated with hatred of the Jews and a murderous obsession with the destruction of Israel. These radicalized members of the population are completely unaccepting of any peace with Israel; they will only accept the utter destruction of the state of Israel and are so beyond control they would murder any leader who made such a peace. This places Mahmoud Abbas exactly where he belongs, having to appease an unappeasable and murderous mob who would gladly kill him if he were to take any offer of peace. They do not want peace, as they have been raised for total warfare and believe that the Jews can be sent running with their tails between their legs just like the Crusaders, the British and every other group to come to the Holy Lands. Those others were all actual invaders with no actual attachment to the land beyond a love of Jerusalem and a few historical cities. The Jews will prove different, as we have come home to the place where we began and where we lived with Hashem and are foretold that we will do so again. This is our home and despite what they believe, we have no other home and cannot return to the Diaspora as only death awaits us there. We are home to stay and Jerusalem was and has always been our only capital since David Melech (King David).

 

Abbas Statement Excerpts and Their Intended Result

Abbas Statement Excerpts and Their Intended Result

 

The one constant thusfar, and likely forever, is that the PA leaders will refuse to accept any peace proposal outright and will never make any counter-proposal stating those items that would make an agreement acceptable to them. There are two main and easily understood reasons that force this situation upon the PA leadership, and Mahmoud Abbas especially. The first reason is the only time that a Palestinian leader made a counter proposal was when Yasser Arafat gave President Willian Jefferson Clinton the demands which he believed that any Israeli leader would refuse to even consider out of hand. When President Clinton explained what Yasser Arafat demanded to then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, Barak accepted them and agreed to make the deal. Yasser Arafat simply bolted from the conference in Paris and refused every further attempt in the final days of President Clinton’s second term to get him to sign a peace accord. Since then, no PA leader has ever delineated what he would be willing to accept. The other reason is that the Arab Palestinian position has become so radicalized within the power structure and amongst the younger Arabs raised on the poisonous hatred of everything Israel and everything Jewish. This has made it such that the PA has been transformed, or is it untransformed, back into the PLO** terrorist group founded in September 1964, almost three full years before the Six Day War and any so-called “Occupied Territories” ever existed. The original claim of the PLO was to destroy Israel and remove the usurper Jews and reclaim all of the land from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea. There was no idea to form any state of Palestine; the idea was to give the lands, after the destruction of Israel, to Egypt and Jordan. The idea of an Arab state of Palestine was born of the loss in the 1967 Six Day War when the PLO refused to alter their claims to liberate the lands occupied by Israel. Mahmoud Abbas stated it clearly in a United Nations speech when he stated that he demands that the lands occupied by the Jews stating, “No one has held Israel accountable when it occupied our territories in 1948.” This speech he also repeated his infamous claim that, “We are the descendants of the Canaanites that lived in Palestine 5,000 years ago.” Here we include a few videos of Abbas and some of his more outlandish claims to the world.

 

 

 

 

And here we have included Mahmoud Abbas’s United Nations speech made in early 2018.

 

 

The reality is Mahmoud Abbas has promised himself into a corner where he can only accept the total destruction of Israel. He has burned all the bridges to get back to the concept of destroying Israel in stages. He faced threats to his own power and position, which in this case means his life and fortune. These threats came from those who read the lay of the field amongst the Palestinian Arabs, especially the youth, and saw they wanted more radical leadership and craved action in the form of more attacks and more terrorism and some even desired an all-out war with Israel. The end result which became accepted as the sole solution was the erasure of all of Israel and the Jews slaughtered where they stood, slept, walked, ran, dined and everywhere they could be found. Hamas has gained in popularity because their charter actually calls for the murder of every Jew in the world. This is the new parameter has become the bottom line and anything short of Israel dead and the Jews dead with anything short of that completely unacceptable and must be rejected out of hand and any leader accepting a peace with Israel would not last out the week, just like the assassination of Anwar Sadat by his own military men at a military parade and event. Should Mahmoud Abbas accept anything President Trump or even his allies, and they are the allies of the Palestinians, from the State Department write up and propose he would be dead killed by his own security detail before he left the building. This has been the Israeli ace in the hole which most do not even realize, the Arab Palestinians will refuse every offer.

*The original 1949 Armistice Lines which the Arab League demanded could never be construed in any fashion, as a definition of a border as doing such would include recognition of Israel and the Zionist Entity.

**PLO is the Palestinian Liberation Organization which is the terrorist group formed under Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas with the blessings of the Arab League and assistance from the KGB as a terrorist group in September of 1964.
