#Marc Lamont Hill, you flew half-way around the world to stand in lands which even the United Nations recognizes as an integral part of Israel to make accusations about things which it is obvious that you have absolutely no knowledge. Do not feel poorly about this because many of the world’s leaders are equally ignorant. Now we know you are an educated man but please realize that ignorance is not an insult to your mental capacities, it is simply the state of not knowing the actual facts about a subject, something which you obviously lack when it comes to Israel. We would like to first address some of the most glaring inconsistencies between your statements and the actual facts. Number one is the Arab citizens of Israel have every single right that a Jewish citizen of Israel possesses. These exactly same rights go for Christians, Baha’I, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Animist, atheist, agnostic or even secular humanist. Israel is truly a democracy of all her citizens and every Arab and their children and their children’s children and on is provided with complete equal rights.

Now, before you begin to scream, what about the Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza?, allow us to address this. The first thing you have to learn here is that these Arabs to which you refer are largely not citizens of Israel. The closest any of the West Bank Arabs have come to Israeli citizenship are the Arabs residing in East Jerusalem. These Arabs reside on lands annexed by Israel and have been provided with limited political rights. They have every other right and are permitted to vote in Jerusalem and even more local elections but are restricted from voting in the Israeli national elections for the immediate times. Their final dispensation will be decided when any final peace is reached with the Palestinian powers. Now, the Palestinian powers are where your confusion lies. Hamas rules Gaza after dethroning Mahmoud Abbas in a Coup in 2007 and Hamas holds something which resembles elections whenever they feel the urge, which is seldom. Hamas could hold elections tomorrow and it would make no difference in Gaza as Hamas would simply pick their desired leader and they would win the election. As stated by Joseph Stalin, “People who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” The Arab politicians learned from some of the most devious.

 

Then there is the “West Bank” which we will call by its original name, you may choose between Judea and Samaria or the Shomron. OK, Shomron it will be and may we say nice choice, it is our favorite as well. Those other names have over three thousand years of history and were not imposed by the Roman Empire in an attempt to destroy the Jewish People, an attempt which we can gladly report failed. These Arabs are ruled over by the Palestinian Authority, may we just call it the PA, thank you. The PA was ruled initially by Yasser Arafat when it was simply the PLO terrorist group funded and a puppet of the KGB. The KGB trained Yasser Arafat as well as Mahmoud Abbas and assisted in choosing the name and providing propaganda to assist them in their assigned duty to destroy Israel. After Arafat died, Mahmoud Abbas won the election overwhelmingly as he was Arafat’s number two man and the one who arranged the financing of the Munich Olympic attack which murdered most of the Israeli Olympians. Abbas was at Arafat’s side when the PLO attempted to dethrone King Abdallah in Jordan and then started the civil war which destroyed Lebanon and led to the formation of Hezballah. Israel would have finished off the leadership of the PLO in Beirut except the State Department had American forces pluck the leadership from a rooftop in Beirut and flew them to Tunisia while leaving many behind who were to be the core for Hezballah. Israel was warned off entering Beirut by the United States, something Israel decided was not worth testing the American resolve. A battleship sitting ten miles off the coast sends a very impressive message. The Oslo Accords brought the PLO back transformed into the PA and now the Israeli partner for peace. The root of the problem is that the Arab leadership does not desire peace unless it includes the Jews subjugated or killed and Israel destroyed. Just a note, subjugated Jews will not last long and as soon as the world turns away, they will be lined up and have their heads removed.

 

We enjoyed your emotional video where you spoke of things you have proven
to know nothing about. Perhaps get some education from sources
other than other revolutionary leftists such as Chomsky and
then we can have an adult and intelligent conversation.

 

But the Palestinian Arabs have not been permitted to vote and what is Israel going to do to remedy that situation? To be blunt, the answer is nothing, as the world would never allow Israel to do anything about that horrific situation. Yes, calm down, we are stating that the world will not allow us to provide the Palestinian Arabs the right to vote. The world is fully aware that should they be provided with a real chance at open and free elections where anybody could run for office and the votes were ratified by independent observers would have the PLO and the PA voted from power. The winners would be one of two possibilities, either Hamas or Islamic Jihad would win or the clan leaders of the numerous cities and towns would win and each small area would be ruled independently of the collective group. An open and real election would fragment the Palestinian Arabs into the separate family and local structures which they would prefer have run their lives. There would be a base group who are hardened terrorists but they would be hard-pressed to make a majority showing. This is the reason that Mahmoud Abbas is serving the twelfth or thirteenth year of his four-year term which began in 2005. Abbas has found every reason in the book to prevent elections and apparently, no one is all that upset as long as they can claim that Israel will not allow them to vote. That would be like claiming that the United States has prevented honest elections in North Korea and it is all Trump’s fault (perhaps we should not give people any ideas). So there are two terrorist dictatorships ruling the Palestinian Arabs which the Israelis have never ruled over directly.

 

But you have basic problems which are far more troubling than these. Israel was not founded on any decision based on the Holocaust; we will refer to that horrid event as the Shoah. The Shoah likely even had minimal influence on the United Nations vote which is depicted in every movie showing Jews huddled around radios waiting to see if the world will accept them and cheering the result and then going out the next day and declaring statehood. There are so many problems with this depiction that it is problematic choosing where to start. The vote that they are referring to took place on November 29, 1947 in the United Nations General Assembly. This vote was on United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 which was a plan to divide the British Mandate lands yet a second time into Arab and Jewish states. This division would be on top of having already given the Arabs 78% of the British Mandate lands all east of the Jordan River and Israel the remaining 22% of the British Mandate lands all west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. The defining of Israel under the British Mandate agreement to be founded between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea should give you a hint on what is meant by “from the river to the sea,” as you quoted that chant for the destruction of Israel. So, the vote was at the end of November 1947 and Israel declared her independence on May 14-15, 1948, a full five and a half months later, not anywhere near the next day or that evening as depicted in the Hollywood movies. So, what could have been so important about the dates in the middle of May? Well, that was the date that the British were ending their enforcement of the mandate and were pulling out of the region. As the Arab leadership had refused the partition offered in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181, as a General Assembly resolution, such a refusal made it null and void and never to be applicable again. That is the odd thing about United Nations General Assembly resolutions, either everyone decides to participate or it holds no worth whatsoever. So, it was not the United Nations vote which established Israel, it was the termination of the British enforcing their mandate which left Israel free to declare their independence.

 

The Israeli border would have reverted back to the original plans as set out under the Mandate which was the result of the San Remo Conference which was held from April 19 to 26, 1920, which is almost two decades before the Shoah. This was one of a myriad of treaties which returned lands to their ancient and original inhabitants, well, unless the British were involved. The British were supposed to work with France to establish a Kurdish nation of Kurdistan but there was a small problem, J. Paul Getty had his greedy little eyes on the Mosul oil fields which were to be included within Kurdistan and they might not be able to make such an arrangement with the free Kurdish People and King Faisal was more than agreeable provided that he ruled all of the north of Iraq and there be no Kurdistan. That is why there is today a Turkish effort to eradicate the Kurdish people in northern Syria and another effort to do likewise in Iraq by the Iraqi military backed by the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) provided by Iran. The British had committed similar things to attempt and prevent there ever coming into place the Jewish State of Israel. The British would stand aside during Arab rioting in Hevron, Jerusalem and other cities mostly during the 1920’s and 1930’s. The British would confiscate weapons from the Jews and some British officers would then turn these weapons over to the Arab fighters. Many British forced tripled their efforts to disarm the Jews and arm the Arabs in the final weeks and days to their departure. The British limited Jewish immigration into Israel and made the limitation even stricter during the Shoah when the Jews were facing their most dire need for a place to flee. On the other hand, the British did nothing to prevent Arab immigration which had three reasons behind their moving into what would become Israel. The first was economic because as the first Zionists returned to the land, the land began a transformation as these Jews drained swamps, irrigated parched lands and the land began to produce establishing an economy with opportunities. Some of the Arabs came to work with the Jews and others came to steal the lands the Jews had transformed by force, which usually was a mistake. Later the British started to import Arabs by force to assure that the Arabs had a majority from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea as they figured that would prevent Israel from ever being founded. They worked with Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and others to bring Arabs from far and wide.

 

The very morning that the British got onto their ships to depart, six Arab nations; Jordan (Transjordan), Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Iraq invaded the nascent state of Israel who had no actual military or universal command structure in place. Meanwhile, there were some British, French and Nazi officers who were veterans of World War II who assisted the Arabs manning their command centers and providing advice. Israel survived which Jews consider to be a great victory, but they lost lands of Gaza and the Shomron, the very places which are today demanding that they be given all of the land and the rightful rulership thereof. Back in 1920 and through 1922 while the Mandate System was being assembled through negotiation by the League of Nations, the Arab League was in complete agreement and did not even argue against having a Jewish State, these were people who were familiar with and obeyed the Quran which tells the Muslims that the lands around Israel are for the Jewish People. Current interpretations of the Quran have instead centered on the promise that Islam will rule the planet and everyone will bend their knees to Allah. This interpretation claims that any lands which were ever ruled or owned by a Muslim can never be lost to anyone else. This makes Israel, Spain, Portugal, southern Austria and the entire Balkans along with other claims all Islamic lands which they must reconquer in order to validate their Quranic interpretation. This has to do with their concept of Naskh (نسخ) which is an Arabic word usually translated as “abrogation.” In this rule of abrogation, the Medina verses which were written later replace any Meccan verses with which they are in conflict. The Meccan Quranic verses were all about coexistence, acceptance and generally seeking peace while the Medina Quran was based on conquest, the sword, Taqiyya, forced conversions and numerous verses that are more violent. These verses changed the Jews from People of the Book who were allowed special compensation as Dhimmis into an accursed people who the trees and rocks would call out to Muslims saying, “Oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” Israel simply desires to be granted the lands we were promised which include the Shomron which is the very heart of ancient Israel. We are not seeking world domination, a greater Israel, the conquest of space or any of the myriad of false conspiracy theories, we simply want that which was promised and is supposed to be upheld by the United Nations as per Article 80 of their Charter. We would also love for people to become familiar with the reality before making rash judgments about Israel. If you have any questions, either ask it in a comment or send us an e-mail Mr. Marc Lamont Hill. One last parting note, there has been archaeological proof of King David and King Solomon which places the Jewish People in these lands with Jerusalem as their capital over three-thousand years ago. Three-thousand years ago Islam was not going to be founded for another seventeen-hundred years and the Arabs were worshiping stone idols, the Moon and other heavenly bodies with limited civilization which was mostly clannish. They had yet to form most of their cities while King David had designed an improved gate which made the Jewish cities easier to defend and had established alliances reaching from the Euphrates River to the Wadi of Egypt in the south. The Wadi of Egypt was a riverbed which was dry much of the year and would have flash floods and is located slightly beyond the Negev-Sinai border into Egypt. Israel never has and does not desire ruling over lands reaching the Nile River as some have proclaimed when denigrating Israel making claims our stated desires for peace are false because of our never satisfied desire for a Greater Israel. We simply desire to have that which we were promised and if that means that there will be Arab settlements which rule themselves at the local level but depend on Israel for their protection under national considerations, we can work with that providing the Arabs are willing. Thusfar, the main demand from the Arabs has been simple, the complete and total destruction of Israel and the Jews eradicated. They state this often in Arabic, a language which apparently nobody outside the Arab world is capable of understanding, not even within the State Department, or maybe they simple desire exactly the same ending. You observe the world and decide, you will be shocked when you watch and search for truth.

Gaza Continues to Erupt Daily

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:04 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

Hamas Rockets and Missiles Nomenclature, Ranges and Payloads

 

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

 

 

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

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.
