Jerusalem Bus Bombing Should Rule All Options Valid

 

The political winds are blowing on the campaign trails as well as the White House. On the campaign trail Bernie Sanders still points to the use of force against Hamas as “disproportional” because there was more damage, casualties and deaths in Gaza than there was in Israel. By Senator Saunders’ system of a fair and balanced war, the allies in World War II were probably the most disproportionate war criminals of all time. Where the bombing of London and other British cities was likely balanced by the bombing of Berlin, Frankfort and other German cities; they then used excessive force in the European theater leveling the entirety of Marseilles, Dresden and the entirety of land in what was determined to be a general series of bombing which would disenchant the German and Italian forces, peoples and citizens even in occupied France and central Europe on into Poland with Germany to receive the bulk of the saturation bombings carried out by the British by night and the Americans by day. Below is a map of the sorties and bombings on Axis targets in defeating the Italian and German fronts by the United States and British air power. It can be noted with even the most casual glance that very little escaped being struck at some point by Allied bombings which was unsurprising when bombing was carried out day and night, day after day, in darkness, overcast skies and clear days where targets could actually be recognized and still the probability of striking any specific target would have one bomb per score dropped actually striking the target on the best days and operational conditions. It becomes obvious that even the targeted bombings in Germany and much of Austria, Belgium and eastern France were buried by the amount of bombs dropped across the entire areas. This was not proportional according to Senator Sanders’ definitions but I doubt anybody would have referred to the bombing campaign against the Nazis a using disproportional force as any force was permissible as this was war.

Another bombing which would not have met with the approval by Senator Sanders would have been the firestorms in Tokyo and the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States ending the war by convincing Emperor Shōwa (昭和天皇) Hirohito (裕仁) that his Japan would be completely destroyed and could not win against such power. One need remember the night of March 9-10 (“Operation Meetinghouse”), where 334 B-29s took off to raid with 279 of them dropping 1,665 tons of bombs on Tokyo that the civilian casualties 97,000 killed and 125,000 wounded in the ensuing firestorm which razed entire neighborhoods especially in the eastern half of Tokyo. Further were the dates of August 6 and August 9, 1945 and the dropping of two nuclear bombs, Hiroshima where over 20,000 soldiers were killed along with 70,000–146,000 civilians and Nagasaki where 35,000-80,000 people were instantly killed and some 50,000 others suffered burns or died by the end of 1945. These were the only wartime use of such weapons but with the new threats forming on the horizon in an ominous fashion, one cannot be assured that they will have been the final use of such weapons. One need remember that the super weapons which end wars become the weapons of choice in the next such war.

The pictures above beg the question as to exactly, Senator Sanders, would be proportional after the bombing and burning beyond recognition of two buses, one with a load of passengers amongst whom more than twenty civilians were injured with many still recovering in hospital with the most severely injured on respirators and in critical care wards. Exactly what is the formula one should use in determining the correct number of casualties? Would it be a direct one for one or does one make the determination of percent of total populations where there are 2,100,000,000 Muslims and not even 14,500,000 Jews worldwide; so do we need to make each Jew injured represent up to 150 Muslims or does your math demand only a one for one ratio? How does the modern Arab/Israeli conflict deserve a different scrutiny than the allied powers of the two World Wars and countless other conflicts throughout history? Could you please clarify for the rest of the world and for Israel, Putin and others who are combating terror?

The injured from the two buses and a number of vehicles which all burned beyond recognition with one of the buses and most of the other vehicles involved were made the victims of this horrific terrorist bombing with a fair number still clinging to life, some on near to full life support while others simply working their way through being burned and some having serious other wounds caused by the metallic shrapnel from the explosive device which was packed with nuts, bolts and screws with potentially other objects which ended being lodged in the victims’ bodies. This attack itself, by primarily targeting civilians, as was the obvious when the initial blast was within one of these city buses which seldom carry solely military personnel and are almost always filled with young civilians who depend on mass transit to take them wherever their lives require of them, was a war crime. But Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, John Kasich and Ted Cruz aside, Israel got a warning of things to come and how completely unconcerned the terror leadership including Mahmoud “the instigating maestro” Abbas as well as Hamas, Islamic State and Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and the rest populating Gaza as well as Judea and Samaria (West Bank) are at bringing death and destruction attacking civilians in the most public fashion and in broad daylight. All the above groups celebrated the attempt to slaughter Israelis heaping praise upon whoever planned this cowardly attack.

 

Further, American Vice President Biden also denounced and scorned Israel as part of his speech given to J-Street, a Jewish pro-Palestinian anti-Zionist and extremely discouraged on Netanyahu winning another term as they believe as does President Obama that it is Netanyahu who is at fault and that Abbas is willing to make peace if only Israel was reasonable. By reasonable Abbas means that all the Jews return to New York City, even if they have never even visited there; so he can make his Palestinian State as he desires, on Israel’s grave. Even should he be granted a state presented on a silver platter with the keys to every building on the Temple Mount; if by assuming such a state, elections would still be required. Abbas knows that if elections are held soon thereafter he would be a dead man or seeking asylum in person in New York himself. The numbers do not lie, they tell the story. When 65% support stabbing Israeli civilians, 89% want to live under an Islamic State run by Sharia law, 84% want to stone adulterers to death and 66% support killing any Muslim who leaves Islam and a two-to-one majority want Abbas out of power with a majority would approve of his being tried for crimes against the Palestinians and then have a proper trial followed by as proper public hanging. No, Abbas will never accept a state in any way, shape or kind as without the IDF protection he becomes a dead man walking.

 

Still, there are rumors floating that Putin and Obama desire giving Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad the Golan Heights from which to shoot at Israelis as he had before in the hopes such would gain him support, or at least sympathy, from the Syrian street thus returning to rule as the leader in the war against Israel. There have been additional balloons floated since we reported on the Huffington Post trial balloon over President Obama simply by edict using the powers of the Security Council to recognize a Palestinian State using the Green Line as the borders including giving all of the Old City of Jerusalem to the Arabs. This would be right in line with the recent ruling by UNESCO that the entirety of the Temple Mount has no roots or bearing from Jewish or Hebrew history and is exclusively and completely an Islamic site including the churches and other structures and historic sites there including the Western Wall and Kotel Plaza, the area where the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus’s crucifixion all took place as well as the area the location of the Holy of the Holies. Such a ruling by President Obama would be unenforceable as there are close to three-fourths of a million if not more Jews residing in Judea and Samaria as well as the thousands of Jews moved from their properties in the Old City where they fought in the courts to finally have their properties returned to them when the area was liberated from Jordanian occupation and the majority of Arabs residing in Eastern Jerusalem, all of whom have Israeli identification cards, who would rush as far as they were able westward to assure they would end up residing in Israel and not any Palestinian “nightmare” State. Both of these ideas have been floated thus taking by United Nations Security Council binding resolutions to take the Golan Heights and all lands liberated from Jordan and hand them over to what would almost immediately in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and soon thereafter with Hezballah likely to be tasked by Assad and Putin to hold the Golan Heights and attack Israelis whenever targets of opportunity present themselves. Additionally, any State set up in the Palestinian Authority areas would become an entity where the people would vote for Hamas, if not the Islamic State, as soon as they were allowed to vote. This fact explains why Mahmoud Abbas has spent a decade in office on his original term of four years which he claimed when he replaced the dead Yasser Arafat. There would be no such confusion or direct route to lead any state which President Obama would spend the political capital to present the Arabs because there would be a demand that an election decide who would rule the state.

 

The hope by President Obama to establish the State of Palestine will never fly as the leadership will immediately become terrorist and it would be a failed state where the terror masters would live lavish lives while the rest of the people who were not directly supporting the terror leaders would be destitute living in camps which would make the current camps become suddenly appealing. Should the Security Council only make the resolution under Chapter Six, then Israel would have the option of ignoring the vote as it would be a strong suggestion and nothing more. That would force President Obama for his legacy, his current Middle East North Africa (MENA) legacy, to be mired in failure from Egypt to Syria to Iran and Iraq, in Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) and especially Nigeria and Libya and particularly Benghazi, a failure which will have a high profile this election season, all failures across the board so Obama appears to be looking to blame Israel and Netanyahu for all his sorrows, and it will blow-up in Obama’s face along with his brain trust of Powers and Rice who have taken turns at Senior Security Advisor and United Nations Ambassador and have lied and spun until dizzy enough to collapse in a tizzy and become as useless and weak as their boss. Obama attempting to form his legacy on the graves of tens if not hundreds of thousands, hopefully nowhere near millions of Jewish graves as he carves up Israel’s security locations such as the Golan Heights, the Jordan River overlooking highlands and even any area along the Jordan River forcing an Israeli retreat. Such a retreat would only occur if Israeli retreat was in response to force of arms which would entail American boots on the ground enforcing Palestine and shooting Jews in Hevron, in Jerusalem, across Biblical lands of the Hebrews and Jews of Judea all in the name of enlightened knowing it all and making the solution by force which will fail as soon as he pulls out the United States troops, something the Americans would likely demand. The suffering this would cause is heart wrenching and unthinkable. Where are the American voices in opposition or has the media refused to point out what is being planned to be implemented either in the late summer in the United Nations and in mid if troops are to be deployed. Listen carefully for rumors of wars which will become actual wars without American people and vigilance, the first requirement for freedom and liberty, the second is acting to right wrongs and doing so before they come to fruition.

The Bane of Israel Advocacy

 

We have all heard that the European Union has caved to the pressures of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) lobbying groups who were originated by the Fatah Party which is the same as saying the PA (Palestinian Authority). They introduced the idea that Israel was an Apartheid nation because the Arabs under the semi-autonomous rule of the Palestinian Authority run by Mahmoud Abbas who has not run for election since assuming the top spot when Yasser Arafat died in 2004. Abbas did not run in the 2005 elections and cancelled the scheduled 2009 election claiming an emergency which would not permit elections and then claimed Israel had not allowed the Arabs under the Palestinian Authority to vote because they were Arabs. What was not reported is that they are ruled by Abbas and he has refused to hold elections because he knows he would be defeated. Israel has no control over Arab elections, or no elections, under Palestinian rule which apparently has become a dictatorship as Abbas has assumed the position of President for Life which he has convinced the world that Israel has caused by not holding elections that he had cancelled. Why did the world media and so many pick up on this story and run with it when they also knew the truth was Abbas refused to hold elections and every Arab citizen of Israel has voted in Israeli elections if they choose to vote just like every other Israeli citizen. If an Israeli citizen does not vote, it is entirely their decision and not the fault of anyone other than themselves. So, as we asked a second ago, what is the problem with the media reporting an entirely false accusation against Israel when they are completely aware that the reason these Arabs under the authority which is led by Mahmoud Abbas as there have been no elections because Abbas cancelled them and will likely cancel the next election as he desires absolute power and refuses to take any chance he might not win but he blamed Israel and that is what the media reports, but why?

 

The answer is simple, in order to be permitted to have access to the Arab areas under Mahmoud Abbas and remain completely healthy when doing so one must report what they are told and never ever cross that line and report the truth or your access will be cancelled and you will be glad your life was not cancelled, not exactly an occurrence which has no precedence. What happens when you lie about Israel such as blaming Israel for Abbas refusing to hold elections? Nothing, absolutely nothing because Israel is an open and free society while the Arab Palestinian semi-autonomous territories is a closed and dictatorial police state with a highly armed enforcement police who are ready to execute anybody at a moment’s notice for being an Israeli agent. That had many examples which the media refuses to report for the same reason as above. So the media will report the Arab Palestinian line and not even check if there is an ounce of reality and truth as they already know that almost everything they claim of blame Israel over are lies or at best exaggerations, but it is news that feeds a popular line, it’s all the Jews fault, or in the modern line, the Jewish State’s fault. There is more to this situation with many in Europe amongst the intelligentsia setting the understood line of thought that Israel is the new Jewish Problem which must be dealt with just as the Jewish Problem of World War II was handled and the only difference is this time the Arab States are the tool replacing the Nazis, only even generally more rabid in their hatred and fury with the Jews and their state of Israel.

There are a majority of nations which are completely comfortable with annulling the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 which is viewed as the establishment of Israel. This majority is a combination of the Arab States, some Muslim non-Arab states, the NAM states (non-aligned nations mostly developing nations) and a good if not majority of the European nations and with President Obama the United States could become doubtful for supporting Israel. Fortunately it is doubtful a move to eradicate Israel by United Nations Security Council Chapter Seven enforceable decree would pass without at least one of the five permanent nations; the United States, Russia, China, Great Britain, and France; using their veto to kill such a motion as it would require the use of force if Israel refused to agree to be dissolved, a likely scenario should such ever come to pass. Unfortunately, such a scenario just might be coming within the next year should Israel be challenged by Iran and allied forces currently in Syria such as Hezballah and additionally Hamas and Islamic Jihad attacked Israel using Iranian provided missiles and warheads and this is proven sufficiently that Israel decided to impart some small retribution launching from one of their submarines a cement tipped warhead on a cruise missile striking the Supreme Leader’s offices in the middle of the night thus causing minimal loss of life but departing a definite and unmistakable message. Imagine how such a scenario would be covered in the media. The Iranians would be calling an emergency meeting of every agency in the world and demanding Israeli leaders and all of Israel be erased over this unprovoked aggression by the Jewish State. There would finally be a Friday Afternoon where the masses would be yelling “Down with Israel” without the usual accompanying “Down with the United States” as Israel would have finally become the Great and Little Satan all over an attack which at most killed two people, one of which was sleeping outside the building struck. And just imagine the headlines and coverage such would get by the New York Times, the BBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, AFP, Reuters, FOX, France 2, France 24 and especially Haaretz as we would not want to leave out what President Rivlin recently declared that, “In times of Right-wing coalitions, and in times of Left-wing coalitions, Haaretz always remained in opposition, and criticized both sides when necessary. Being in the opposition is not an easy job. Most of my youth, I belonged to the opposition – to the ‘wrong’ side. Knowing that the public has chosen a different way, the opposition must work hard to convince them it has better solutions. It must reconnect with the public and still keep to its own truth. Without this effort, without a live-and-kicking opposition, our democracy is worth little. I am here today because I believe that the free market of ideas is a sacred principle.” There are many who hold doubts that Haaretz has maintained such an oppositional level with equal ardor favoring neither Right nor Left-wing governments as their very evident slant to the Port if we put it in naval terms.

 

The reality which has caused a bit of an identity crisis is that this new form of anti-Semitism is not the compliment of the older anti-Semitism which was relegated to a Right-wing; the neo-anti-Semitism is a purely Left-wing phenomenon and has a virulence which almost defies comparison. There are many of the neo-anti-Semites who claim that Hamas is correct in their actions as Israel refuses to end their occupation despite Israel removing every vestige of their existence in August of 2005 leaving only the multi-million-dollar advanced greenhouses which would have provided an entire industry up and running only to have them torn apart in order to turn the piping and other framework and provisions into rockets and explosives out of the fertilizer and launched these rockets into Israel. They ignore that Israel had no embargo blockade when they initially turned the Gaza Strip over to Mahmoud Abbas and the Arab Palestinian Authority. It was after Hamas took control in a coup that Israel found it necessary to prevent them from importing heavy weapons and other more destructive systems with which to bombard Israeli civilians in neighboring communities which were initially in jeopardy. With assistance from Iran and European monies Hamas has slowly developed the capacity to produce rockets capable of striking deeper into Israel placing Jerusalem and Haifa within striking distance of their latest rockets and who knows what will be available in the next round with Hamas. The other item ignored is the charters of both the Arab Palestinian Authority and especially those of Islamic Jihad and Hamas which both quote passages from the Quran usually utilized to express the unbridled hatred of the Jews and insists in their eradication to the last single Jew. But is this a worrisome concern of these neo-anti-Semites? No, never even a concern is placed in such knowledge as it makes little difference; all is permissible in the crusade to purge the world of the Jew in the form of the Jewish State, of Israel.

 

That is the drive behind the BDS program but that is just one piece of the tip of the spear. The rest of the spear, the mass of the spearhead behind the sharp knives which are stabbing Jews in Israel every day and have been doing so for months and apparently has become the new normal along with ramming groups of people with the car and lately evolved to include firearms as drive by shootings have joined the assaults on Jews which are not being reported in the liberal media, too Jewish to report. The story line from Gaza is even more controlled and enforced line of the story is always the same, the Jews are forcing the violence and rockets fired onto their cities. Hamas would stop firing the rockets if the Jews would just go back to where they came or just disappeared all-together. The Europeans think the Jews should leave while they can and go to Israel and the Arabs want the Jews to all go to Europe or America or Alaska, anywhere but in lands where there are Arabs. If the Arabs got the upper-hand in the Arab-Israeli conflict and made the world an offer of accepting the Jews and Christians and any other than Muslim Israelis instead of allowing Hamas to liquidate them all, does anybody honestly believe their nations would take as many Israelis as they have Syrians? Syrians are victims of a horrific war but the Jews simply lost and have to face the result of that loss, they do not rate high enough on the world’s sympathy meter to honestly give it a moment’s thought. Let Hamas and the others do as they choose, what problem is it of the world. This is understood though never spoken of in polite company as such things are too horrible to believe of our fellow mankind. Such truths must be ignored even if we in our hearts fear the truth of such as we remember the trip, the lonely and desperate trip of the St Louis and the fate which awaited her passengers because nobody, nor Cuba who had extended their open arms only to close them slamming the door of hope in the passengers of the St Louis’s faces and not the United States, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, nor any other possible nation in the entire world extended a helping hand to the passengers of the St Louis as they slowly made their way back to Nazi Germany and the Concentration Camps. Would today be any different if instead of a ship on the high seas instead it was the Ship of State of Israel which was stricken and needed a nation to which her people might embark on creating new lives or face certain death should the world turn a cold hearted refusal as they had the St Louis.

Would there be any difference in the liberal halls of Europe who already fund a multitude of NGOs whose goal is the death of the Jewish State, and whose European Union has taken its first step towards placing an embargo on all Israeli goods and services, except any great innovation which might serve them or their peoples interests such as instant messaging, most software protection systems and other innovations. The European nations which abstain rather than vote their hearts in the United Nations allowing every sort and form of denunciation to go unopposed by Europe who calm their conscience with an abstention telling themselves that was close enough as they could have supported and thus was a tacit approval and not outright. There is no difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism or anti-Israelism as holding Israel to its own unique set of perfection which no other nation is held or even expected of itself on its best day, but Israel must hold to perfection and any mar or mere scratch of the polishing wax that could easily be rubbed from existence is instead used to martyr Israel, used to spear her and roast her slowly over hot embers enjoying every drip of sweat and the sizzle of the fat as that is the sentence for imperfection if you are Israel, if you are the Jewish State.

 

That is the judgement of the media, especially the left leaning media but across the boards it often seems similar. So why does not Israel have its defenders? Certainly not President Francois Hollande who after the carnage in Paris, refused to include Jerusalem in the list of cities hit by terrorists making what can only be classified as one deliberate anti-Semitic choice. Well, she does have some spokespeople but they do not dictate to the media and only control the one station in most regions which is largely seen only by those who agree. Such a station is the CBN network which often defends Israel and that is applauded by many Evangelicals but they are but one group. Even the Jews are not as solidly supportive of Israel with many feeling embarrassed when the discussion comes to Israel because they know what should be expected of them but they know they will fall short as their standing in the leftist community is more important, inclusion and acceptance is more important because they will never live in Israel, maybe a couple of weeks every few years just for the sake of proving they are not anti-Semitic Jews, but never permanently as the United States is so much better. They might be surprised that for a Jew they are incorrect but to each their own. And there is another big problem, for if Jews refuse to support Israel, then who can one demand support from. This adds to the reasoning that Israel is indefensible as even her own people are against her. And that takes care of much of the media as the leftist Jews in the media bash Israel and the conservatives have such a small contribution and are not given space often enough in the major newspapers as might be hoped. There are claims the Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author supports Israel; with such support may we have less support and settle for honest criticism. Then there is the lost generation, the Jews who received just enough Jewish education that they might remember how to read the very Hebrew they learned to be Bar or Bat Mitzvah and some Jewish bible history which might still resonate and they know Hanukah because it comes with Christmas and they remember the High Holidays but still go to work on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and do not fast for Yom Kippur. That is the average Jew in America but fortunately the average Jew in Israel is getting more and more religious in what is called the periphery which means outside Tel Aviv and some secular areas of Jerusalem. Is there hope for Israel’s future? Yes, and it is assured with every little miracle we witness almost every day.

 

There are the little miracles which only those present or related to a person who was present know about. There are miracles such as the birth of a healthy child or any child as all life is precious and has its own reason and future to map out and their contribution for which Hashem placed them here as there are no wasted souls, just some who have gone astray and will require some therapy to come around, and that is provided in the least expected of ways. Then there are the mysterious miracles which make no sense or reason other than Hashem willed it and it came to be. As the Hamas officer of a rocket company was called on the carpet for not striking Tel Aviv, he was demanded to explain how he could miss such a large target and he replied that even when their rocket flew true towards central Tel Aviv their G0d moved it aside. I doubt his commander accepted that story, well, until he read about it in the news as it made news across Israel and was celebrated as proof of Hashem protecting Israel and we all prayed a little louder that week. You can read about it in our article Why Palestinian Israeli Conflict Appears Open-Ended as we definitely mentioned it. The wind mentioned as redirecting the rocket out to sea would need to be more than a strong gust or even strong directed winds as rockets are designed to fly straight with only minimal effect from side winds, especially with seconds before they strike. Any wind capable to such redirection would have caused more damage and deaths than the rocket striking. The wind was as to give naysayers their logical explanation. The Hamas officer in that reported story nailed it, Hashem moved the rockets to strike harmlessly and as most of these rockets striking empty fields and vacant lots could be claimed to be just luck so it was necessary to make one spectacular redirect on at least one rocket so all would know that these rockets missing was more than just luck, they each were potentially a miracle, every-one a potential miracle.

The big news nobody is talking about is the great opportunity for the Arab Palestinian people in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) who reside in Area A and Area B to finally get a political voice the world has clamored for in their own elections. Israel might even be moved to permit those parts of Area C, the areas which according to the original intent of the Oslo Accords were visualized to belong to Israel in any final agreement, be granted the allowance to vote in any Palestinian elections. What many people are unaware of in the entire world outside the Arab and many parts of the Muslim world is that the Arab Palestinians have had their own autonomous region within Israel since the agreements of the Oslo Accords were signed. Despite the Arab Palestinian leadership, all of it including Fatah, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades (the military arm of Fatah and the Arab Palestinian Authority) and technically even Hamas and Islamic Jihad as the vast majority, if not all, of their members are also Arab Palestinian. The problem comes with the dissolution of the Unity Government making those residing in Gaza technically not granted a vote as they have presumably returned to being under Hamas. Now if this was to be declared the vote which was supposed to have been held within six months of the formation of the Unity Government, then all Arab Palestinians from Area A, Area B and Gaza, and with Israeli discretion and permission for those residing in Area C might be permitted the vote providing the Arab Palestinians desired such sufficiently to have them so inquire such of Israel. One need remember that Abbas prevented such a vote as he was staring down the barrel of a rifle marked losing the election and falling to Hamas’ revenge. But now with the Unity Government dissolved and Abbas returned to his President for Life position and his needing a new Parliament, this would be the perfect time for him to hold actual elections and even allow the new Parliament to choose a Prime Minister while Abbas, as already noted, could retain his President for Life or could go all the way and show his confidence in the people to reelect him to the President of the Arab Palestinian Authority, a title he oft times uses the euphemism of Chairman likely to differentiate his being the head person in Fatah and the PLO as technically the Commander in Chief of the al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades. Oh, let us not rule out his newly granted title since the United Nations General Assembly and so many European and international agencies and government starting with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) having recognized the twenty-third Arab State, Abbas assumed the title of President of Palestine (perhaps one should ask him what the borders are and see how much of the globe he will claim along with all of Israel).

 

Getting all serious, recently former United States President and major Israel detractor and self-appointed inquisitor, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr., visited the Middle East, meaning made a pilgrimage to Ramallah to give the Arab Palestinian man for all positions, Mahmoud Abbas some additional political weight and recognition while also not missing the opportunity to lay yet another wreath at the tomb of Yasser Arafat. Arafat was one of the most admired of men to President Carter and terrorist extraordinaire as well as inventor of the plane hijacking, suicide bomber, car bomb and so many other constructive firsts plus being the first Egyptian citizen to claim the leadership of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in 1964, three years before there existed any occupied lands. Arafat also claimed to be the titular head of the Arab Palestinian people, a position he simply assumed without receiving any votes as his terrorist PLO operated from within Jordanian occupied Israel. His PLO terrorist entity claimed the remainder of Israel as their intended lands just as it remains to this day, lands west of the Jordan River. Just like Yasser Arafat, his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, and the rest of his hand-picked and KGB trained assassins and terror masters, as only the best trained rabble of the world were chosen to manage and lead in the destruction of Israel, had as its main goal the elimination of the entire state of Israel and then incorporating it into Jordan as they had no desire to actually rule a state as this was not part of their training and repertoire as remains obvious to this day. This would include the disposition by unknown means of its Jewish population, also known as their final solution as it so closely resembled another madman’s ideas of a final solution when it came to Jews and others he despised and President Jimmy Carter is consistent in his regards for Israel as he laid out for the world to read in his infamous not quite best seller, actually nowhere even approaching such esteemed status, titled Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, available on Amazon.

 

What was absolutely amazing was that upon departing President Carter made a suggestion that I actually support. You can imagine my astonishment and even remorse that someday I would have to own-up to agreeing with arch anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semite former United States President Jimmy Carter, but such is the case and I am unable to make or even offer the faintest of denials. President Carter suggested that there be elections held for a new government as they had been denied that privilege since the elections in 2006 when they elected a Hamas majority Parliament which posted the writing on the wall that should Mahmoud Abbas allow elections for his position he would likely lose to Hamas’ Ismail Haniyeh, the titular head in Gaza. This has been hanging over Abbas’s head as his personal Sword of Damocles threatening to behead him immediately, if not sooner, should elections be held and he to lose and Hamas or any other Islamist group should replace Abbas. Despite this never being a subject Abbas would consider, former President Carter stated during a joint news conference with Abbas, “We hope that sometime we’ll see elections all over the Palestinian area and east Jerusalem and Gaza and also in the West Bank.” Obviously former President Carter more than likely did not pass this idea for announcing such a threat to Abbas with anybody from Mahmoud Abbas’s offices and may have just had it roll out of his mouth before he could realize what he was about to, nope, in the midst of, oh darn, already called for new Palestinian elections, wow, I guess senility has taken hold as President Carter must have thought for a second, due to the surroundings and their obvious Middle Eastern flavor, that he was in Jerusalem and was calling for new Israeli elections to include Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and Gaza, simply remarkable. Actually, I believe that Jimmy Carter knew exactly where he was standing, who stood at the podium next to him, and still stated the need for Palestinians be granted their right to vote as stated in the Arab Palestinian Authority Charter and have been suspended since 2006. If nothing else, Jimmy Carter really does place a lot of faith in democratic elections as the solution to all of the world’s problems, even if he probably believes Israel prevents such elections world-wide.

 

The thing is with this statement by President Carter a month and a half ago and the dissolution of the Unity Government; this would be the perfect time for the world, especially the Europeans and President Obama, to demand that the Arab Palestinians finally be granted their voting rights to decide who is to lead them going forward. They have, according to far too many leftist, the inalienable right to elect their representatives on the determined timetable as stated in their governing documents, in this case the Arab Palestinian Charter, without interference and in an observably free and independent system designed and implemented to permit a fair and honest accounting of the people’s will and the enacting of the governance they choose in such elections. Every time there is an Israeli election we hear the demands for the Palestinians to be granted their voting rights despite the obvious fact that they are not Israeli citizens. That claim would be paramount to demanding that all Mexicans residing in Mexico who have a family member living in the United States be permitted to vote in the United States elections as their relatives will be influenced by such an election and that might affect the amounts of money they could send home and alter their livelihood. The Arab Palestinians have their own autonomous region which the exception for international relations and defense of their borders from outside attack (a responsibility which falls to Israel and the IDF, the same IDF which also protects Israelis) and even pay taxes to the Arab Palestinian Authority and not to Israel as long as they work within their autonomous area boundaries of Area A and Area B in the contested area which Jordan renamed West Bank rejecting the historical names of Judea and Samaria as they were, their terminology at the time, too Jewish.

 

The only question I must scream out is, where are all those voices, all those European political entities, all those NGOs, the United Nations and its entourage of alphabet agencies, President Obama and the State Department, the Non-Aligned Nations, the Arab League, the Saudi Royal Family, the Iranians and especially their Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Egyptian President Sisi, and all those human rights groups who with malicious and knowing guileful deceit demand Palestinians vote or is that demand reserved only when Israel holds elections to form a new government and never ever to be uttered when the Palestinian virtual dictator and obvious President for Life Mahmoud Abbas, a.k.a. Abu Mazen, known as his name de guerre, would necessarily risk his position which he has refused to chance since 2005 when assuming the role after the death of Yasser Arafat and not stood for election in any of the elections years following where perhaps the 2006 elections might have been premature, such does not apply to 2009, 2012 and, strangely enough, coincidently 2015 otherwise known as right now! I want to hear the voices of all those otherwise hypocritical Israel bashers who have demanded the Palestinian Arabs be permitted to vote, well, that time is right now and there will probably never be a better timed dissolution of the Arab Palestinian governance and thus perfect timing for elections to be held possibly as early as September and definitely before December 24 of 2015 as a celebration of all the wonders the Prophet gave the Muslim people and the celebration of his birthday this year. What could be a better way to celebrate the birth of the prophet of Islam than to hold elections for the new government of, for and chosen by the people.

 

What do you say Mr. Abbas, how about holding elections at least for the Parliament even if you are too timid and unsure of your position and popularity, or even acceptance by the people you claim to speak for, allow them this once to speak themselves. The world will be a better place after such an election as there will be a definitive line between Israel and the Hamas governance which would finally and irrevocable unite Judea and Samaria with Gaza and then Israel could demand that Hamas prove their ability to run the territories already autonomous and under their complete and unfettered control, rule well and we can discuss a state, use the position as a rocket launching platform which can hardly ever miss striking some target, even if they would almost all be civilian targets, then I believe you know what follows. I feel pretty sure you’re being granted uncontested rule over the Arab Palestinian areas would be the golden opportunity to have that state everybody else claims erroneously that your desire. You and I, we both know fully well what it is you desire as you wrote the charter and we both have read your charter thousands of times looking for the right key, the correct combination of concessions which would satiate your lusts for what might be a lasting victory but we both know what your charter, the Hamas Charter calls for and it is not all that different from the ISIS Charter, is it. We both know your standard, your stated slogan, you know, the part that goes, “Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Quran its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.” In what might be best described as the preamble of the Charter it states, “Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors. (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, May Allah Pity his Soul).” Your Charter also appears to be centered on looking beyond just Israel but places a target on the entirety of the Jews. As your Charter states, “This is the Charter of the Islamic Resistance (Hamas) which will reveal its face, unveil its identity, state its position, clarify its purpose, discuss its hopes, call for support to its cause and reinforcement, and for joining its ranks. For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave, so much so that it will need all the loyal efforts we can wield, to be followed by further steps and reinforced by successive battalions from the multifarious Arab and Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory prevails.” You even chose to include a fairytale that is not included in the classic and original Quran but you probably could not resist its thoughts of merriment charging here and there in a great slaughter, that just had to be the reason for including the following quote, “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree. (cited by al-Bukhari and Muslim).” Then again, the Jews are but your appetizer, not your main course, your main course is the Christians and after them the idolaters and every other human not yet forced to surrender to your will and Allah. You also deny the Quranic statement that the lands of the Hebrews were reserved to them and they are to be protected in their ownership and life in those lands when your charter claims trespass by the Jews settling in their recognized ancient lands as defined in the Quran but your charter claims otherwise when stating, “When our enemies usurp some Islamic lands, Jihad becomes a duty binding on all Muslims. In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad.” The Hamas Charter seems overly preoccupied with the Jews and contains very little about the importance for the spiritual advancement of the Muslims within your fold. There is little contained in the Hamas Charter which departs from violence and threats of violence. It is as if there must be no end to the bloodletting until the last standing human can stand upon the pile of skulls and bones and only then declare to his world conquest, the world of one, alone and thus fated. Where are the calls for prayer and introspection and spiritual enlightenment and the finding of peace within oneself or is the only peace understood by Hamas the peace of the grave. Such a worship of a culture of death, destruction and eventually the sacrifice of the self for the cause of vengeance even against peoples who never harmed you or any of your brothers and sisters of Islam and merely wish to live their lives and die after a full and rich life where they hurt relatively few and helped those needing their helping hand and shown largely kindness and would greet you as a potential friend yet such friendship can never be as if anyone does not belong to Hamas and worship Allah as Hamas dictates such is to be performed, then they are infidel and must be slaughtered. What then after only the few thousand who are Hamas remain, do you then purge from within your ranks as your orgy of death must continue until not quite none remain, just the one whose manner of prayer and keeping with the final vengeance of the prophet be fulfilled, then that one can begin a life of what and for what, to be the last person standing? What a reward, what an empty reward.
