The Lie, the Temple, the Temple Mount and the Future After Jerusalem

 

The violence on the Temple Mount and much of Jerusalem is the result of the wrong-headed action of Israeli leadership and governance. The original Oslo Accords never intended for Jerusalem to ever come into the discussion as Israel had reclaimed her rightful claim to Jerusalem, Hevron and all that is within the closest areas to Jerusalem and had even extended the first stages for citizenship of the Arab population of Jerusalem. Little facts not revealed in the media include that the Arabs in Eastern Jerusalem can and do vote in city elections and were well on their way to fully becoming members of Israel until the recent warfare over Eastern Jerusalem began. Judging from the news articles the violence in Jerusalem is going to continue to increase until the world demands that Israel surrender all claims to beyond the Green Line, the 1967 pre Six Day War armistice lines which had Jordan occupying Eastern Jerusalem and all the lands west of the Jordan River up to the Green Line. Let me repeat the most pertinent and important part of that sentence; Jordan occupying Eastern Jerusalem and all the lands west of the Jordan River up to the Green Line. And the rightful nation holding claim to these lands which Jordan was occupying was Israel. The actual border at the beginning of the 1948-9 war was the Jordan River and Israel held the central area of the Golan Heights at the beginning of that war. We could go into this in detail but it would be far better explained in our earlier article The War Israel Lost the War Israel Must Win where everything was explained and is where the rest of this article continues. Without reading or at least referencing that article much in the rest of this article will be confusing and possibly confounding.

 

Let’s continue. Israel has little power to end the violence currently erupting on the Temple Mount, in Eastern Jerusalem even west of what was the Green Line, and from the Jordan River and including all of Samaria and much of Judea up to and also beyond the Green Line. The violence on the Temple Mount and the remainder of Jerusalem was given a booster shot from Mahmoud Abbas demanding a week ago on September 17, 2015, that the Arabs continue their violence campaign as part of the greater war to destroy all Israel. Abbas declared, “The Al-Aqsa (Mosque) is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they (Jews) have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem.” He had even more to add with his demanding, “We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every martyr will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah.” Going back to October of last year, 2014, Abbas initiated this war to oust the Jews from Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in particular when he insisted, “It is not enough to say the settlers came, but they must be barred from entering the compound by any means. This is our Aqsa… and they have no right to enter it and desecrate it.” Abbas defined defending “Al-Aqsa” as tantamount to defending Jerusalem, which the Palestinians demand as the Capital of a future state. He stated, “Jerusalem is the jewel in the crown and it is the eternal capital of the Palestinian state. Without it, there will not be a state. It is important for the Palestinians to be united in order to protect Jerusalem.” Back then as Abbas is threatening now there was the threat of this leading to another Intifada if Israel did not retreat and allow Abbas and the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA), which actually means Fatah which was the renaming of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization, an entity with its origins in 1964 pre-occupied by Israel lands from war of 1967 and founded to replace Israel with Palestine and some things do remain the same) to make an additional entity from which Arafat and now Abbas could use so as to be able to claim he never made certain statements by claiming his innocence of claiming he called for Temple Mount violence as the Chairman of the PA and if called on such he would claim he was speaking at the Fatah Party directors meeting and did not say that as the Chairman of the PA. After claiming, clarifying, the authoring of the statement as from another position, he would from that point forward deny ever saying that as Chairman of the PA, a technically accurate statement not too dissimilar to having Prime Minister Cameron claim he did not make a statement as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom because he made the statement at the London meeting of the heads of his party and thus he could not be claimed to have stated those words as he never said them as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Below is the report video by Palestine Media Watch with translation added in subtitles. The interesting implication is added that the Arabs are also fighting to free from Israeli and Jewish control the Christian sites implying that the restriction on any non-Muslim from entering the Temple Mount is caused by Israel and not the Jordanian Waqf or the Arab rioting when he adds, “The al-Aqsa is ours and so is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.” He thus also claims this Christian holy site as belonging to the Muslims and thus under their protection as a place of worship of the Dhimmi, in this case the Christians within PA territory and this also enforces the status the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and all Christians will have should Abbas win this war.

 

 

 

 

Continuing on from there it is important to point out when Mahmoud Abbas refers to the al-Aqsa Mosque, he is not speaking of simply the building that is the Mosque but to the grounds which the Mosque stands upon. When the al-Aqsa Mosque is claimed as belonging to the Arabs and thus the PA, he means literally the entirety of the Temple Mount to include the Western Wall which he has already threatened will come under barrages from the heaven(s) if the Jews continue to defile that sacred wall where Mohammad tie his magical flying steed before mounting an even more powerful magic steed to ride to heaven and have his audience with Allah and also met Moses, Abraham, Ishmael, Noah and others that night returning to Mecca by sunrise of the next day to make the call to prayer. This is claimed because the Quran states that Mohammad traveled in his dream to the farthest Mosque, the al-Aqsa Mosque which at that time would have meant less than a hundred miles north of Medina where the original al-Aqsa Mosque stands but one was purposely built in Jerusalem to claim that the Quran states that Mohammad visited Jerusalem and thus it is a Muslim city for all time. Thus the claim to al-Aqsa is a claim to the entirety of the Temple Mount and the rioting of Muslims at the direction, planning and insistence of Mahmoud Abbas can only be ended by Israel. How, you might query, can Israel end the rioting? Is Abbas calling for Israeli police to mount an assault and force the rioters from the Temple Mount or to resort to heavier tactics such as arresting the rioters? Nothing of the sort, Abbas has defined the steps Israel must make before the rioting can end, and this too was an Abbas statement made before some body which has nothing to do with the PA thus he never stated such, as leaving the Temple Mount under Waqf control and then the Waqf and the PA will work together and the rioting will end. Nice and neat as all Israel need do is surrender the Temple Mount, and soon thereafter the rest of Eastern Jerusalem followed by the Western Wall and eventually all of Jerusalem.

 

The claim Abbas has made was that all of Jerusalem belongs to the Muslims by Islamic law, Sharia, because Islam was conquered and ruled by Islamic rulers and thus must always be an Islamic city. This is a diabolical argument because it can be used to claim all of Israel which is the final aim of the Palestinian terror leadership. Their aim is to tear Israel apart piece by piece and to swallow up the land in small bites if necessary. Mahmoud Abbas, and Yasser Arafat before him, have stated the aim was to gain as much lands as was possible using the world governments and channels and accept the lands at some point when it appeared that the world was possibly going to finally say that enough is enough and the Arabs cannot claim all of Israel. Initially Abbas would query why can’t they claim all of Israel as he had done so long ago and that all of Israel is occupied Palestine which every school child is aware, referring to school children in the PA propaganda induction centers where good little terrorists are raised to hate the Jews. This is another important piece of the puzzle, the PA schools do not limit the teaching of hate to Israelis, they teach the hatred of all Jews and that Christians are lesser people who rely on Muslims for their protection from those Jews who rule everything and is why the PA Arabs are so poor, the Jews took their money while Abbas is building himself a really nice house. To quote the article from the The Times of Israel, “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is leading the construction of a luxurious presidential palace near Ramallah at a cost of $13 million, despite the PA being mired in a debilitating financial crisis. The goal of this project is to establish the Presidential Guest Palace in Surda, Ramallah within an area of 4,700 square meters, along with a building for the Presidential Administration and Guards with an area of 4,000 square meters, the construction process includes also preparing the surrounding area and two helipads, the project will be constructed over a land area of 27,000 square meters.” (See picture of plans below.)

After Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Arab Palestinian Authority finish their power play of calling for riots and then demanding that Israel quell the rioting but scream bloody murder if the Israeli police as much as scream at one of the so sensitive teenage and young adult rioters. This was the demand made to force Israelis out of Hevron costing the IDF a brave soul which the PA armed forces simply sat and guarded his body for hours allowing him to bleed to death from wounds which even basic first aid would have permitted recovery. That was a simple act of inhuman and needless suffering forced on the young man simply for being an Israeli. This will be the modus operandi for the rest of Jerusalem block by block if necessary. The rioting will continue to advance into the areas just beyond any new armistice or peace line. Each new assault will be permitted to build slowly with once a week riots turning into three times a week and eventually every morning to some full day and finally an all-out continuous rioting, another intifada to match the current Temple Mount intifada which was declared a year ago or more. Over the year Mahmoud Abbas has called for calm which lasted almost three days before he again made the accusation that Israel was attempting to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque. There were claims that the Israelis wanted to make the al-Aqsa Mosque into a Synagogue and steal this Muslim holy site just as the Jews have done to other Moslem holy sites. Then there were claims that Israel was going to demolish the al-Aqsa Mosque and all the other religious buildings and sites on the Temple Mount in order to build a Temple. It needs to be pointed out that Abbas is very careful when speaking of the Temple as he will not recognize the First and Second Temples were ever built on the Temple Mount or within Israel as the Arab Palestinians who have resided in all of Israel for as much as nine-thousand years and there has been no record of any Israelite or Jewish temple or any other such building on the Temple Mount which was also built by Muslims to hold the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque. What is also strange is that there has been no reference to the Arabs, be they Palestinian or Jordanian or Egyptian or any descriptor one prefers and the record of their migration from the Arabian Peninsula did not begin before the Seventh Century, a simple fourteen-hundred years ago. Adding that the Arabs did not actually arrive in the Jerusalem area until well after the Babylonians who destroyed the First Temple in the year 586 BCE and the end of Roman rule as they destroyed the Second Temple in 70 CE does not dampen the zeal and hate-filled rhetoric from Mahmoud Abbas. The Arab Palestinians are fighting on the Temple Mount according, to Mahmoud Abbas, in order to save the holy Islam protected sites which include the Christian sites as well as the Islamic sites and that if they are not successful the Jews will destroy every holy site on the Temple Mount and build their Temple which will fill the entire Temple Mount and Muslims and Christians will be banned from entering the Temple Mount forever. They are told that any denial by the Jews is a deception because Jews only know how to lie and unlike Muslims, who never deceive and tell only the truth, the Jews deal in deceits which is proven by the fact that the Israelis lost the wars in 1967 and 1973 and only because the world stepped in to save the Jews did they not get destroyed. We could relate the Muslim strong Jew weak and a million, OK, a little short of a million, other examples of what is taught to instigate hatred and start the rioting when they deem the time is right.

It will; however, leave far less room for youth to play soccer which many might claim is a good thing.

These tactics are beginning to be used in the Galilee as groundwork for the general strife which is hoped will chase the Jews completely from all of Israel which is being prepared at this time. There are Imams and other Islamic authorities who are working in the Arab towns and areas in the Galilee to stir up discontent mostly amongst the youth. They claim that the Jews have all the wealth and are living in better conditions because they have stolen the land and the riches from the Arabs. The reason they are not aware of this is because their parents and other people have been cowed by Israel and are afraid to speak against the Jews. This lie is insidious and corrupting of the Arab society as it tells the children that their own parents are withholding the truth as they are scared, they are frightened and surrendered to the Jewish powers and that only through strong Islamic belief can this terrorism by the Jews be fought. They are told that the only way to fight the Jewish terrorism is through Arab terrorism which is even stronger than the Jews as proven by their conquest in much of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and the glorious defeat of the Israeli war machine which freed Gaza. They point out that every time Israel invaded Gaza they were unable to conquer it and that brave Palestinian resistance forced the Jews from those holy Islamic lands and will push them from these holy lands in the Galilee and return it to its rightful Islamic control. In Gaza in the schools run by Hamas or Islamic Jihad or even UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) run schools teach the children that they used to live in a randomly chosen city within Israel such as Ashdod, Nahariya, Akko, Beersheba or even Tel Aviv. Some are told they come from villages which no longer exist but that the lands still belong to them and the Jews stole their lands. Each child is given such a place and it is recorded and that child will have this origin within Israel infused into their reality and in many cases the parents cooperate with this falsehood at home either out of loyalty to the cause or sheer fear of retribution should their child ever report they were subverting the child’s proper education. These children will become the cause celeb when the time comes for rioting and other violence committed with the intent of driving the Jews into the sea one square millimeter at a time.

 

The recent push at the Temple Mount will likely be a central target depicting the evils of colonialism by the Jews subjugating their destitute and suffering Muslims, both those in Israel and the Arab Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. The Temple Mount will receive special attention as there is the safety of the al-Aqsa Mosque which the world must defend if they ever hope to prove they are not Islamophobic. Israel will be denounced by speaker after speaker and may even be ignobly knighted as the harbinger of hatreds by Pope Francis himself, a self-appointed anointer of knights of peace and angels of harmony as he was accredited with having bestowed upon the head of Mahmoud Abbas as part of the ceremonies which were designed to place Israel as the attestation of hardship and violence. The Pope prayed for the anti-terror wall to be cut asunder as it was a harbinger of Apartheid state and was all the argument necessary to prove the guilt of Israel and simply the Jews returning to the ways of their original sin against all Christianity. This was simply another outbreak of Christian replacement theology and further proof that Pope Francis did not abide by the absolution of the Jewish People for their part in the deicide of Jesus. Adding onto the Papal visit, these past few weeks since Abbas demanded that the rioting be ramped to a higher and more violent level claiming this was necessary to prevent the Jews from continuing to “defile it with their filthy feet” referencing the al-Aqsa Mosque depicting the entirety of the Temple Mount. This was done ahead of Abbas meeting with French President Francois Hollande who called for “peace, calm and the respect of principles” adding after his meeting with Abbas, “I expressed our attachment to the status quo over the mosque compound.” In a conversation with Jordanian King Abdullah II the French President restated his support for the maintaining the ban on Jewish prayers on the Temple Mount. Since then numerous spokespersons have added their voices to the chorus of Amen with all demanding that Jewish prayers not be permitted on the Temple Mount. Jewish prayers on the Temple Mount existed well before the existence of any of the structures currently occupying the space. There is sufficient room to place the Third Temple on the Temple Mount and refusing to permit such will speak loudly and clearly enough that every Jew will hear and understand. Such a proclamation from the world will fall on deaf ears because long before we could hear and understand the hatreds voiced in these days we made a far more important vow when we answered at Mount Sinai on the eve of the Giving of the Torah, מתן תורה. The people of Israel collectively cried out, “We obey and we will listen” נעשה ונשמע –by which it was meant we accept any commandment God gives us and we commit to keeping them even before we have heard what they are.

 

 

Third Temple on Temple Mount Sharing with Dome of the Rock as equals

The entire idea of forbidding Jews to pray on the Temple Mount was granted to end rioting on the Temple Mount coming into the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and Islamic leaders including Jordanian King Abdullah II demanded that all Jewish praying be banned for that month in exchange for relative calm. There was a period of relative calm for a week to ten days and then the rioting continued and has only escalated ever since. The expressed aim is to push the Jews from the Temple Mount, the surrounding neighborhoods and from having access to the Western Wall. Should the Arab Palestinians receive the support they seek from world figures, as has flowed freely over the past month and is about to reach tsunamic proportions with the opening ceremonies for the General Assembly approaching where there will be an orgy of hate Israel denounce the Jews coming in speech after speech. Europeans and potentially the United States will largely give some form of recognition for the status quo to be maintained on the Temple Mount which is tantamount to forbidding Jews the right to say any form of gratitude or supplication to Hashem on what is the holiest of all places on earth to the Jews. Such demands are another manner of acclaiming the Islamic designs that their holy sites cannot and will not be shared with any other religion and that if a place is holy to another faith and any Islamic structure is built at the same location that the other religion must be banned from giving their prayers and supplication from that day on. Such a demand will preclude any possibility for the Temple to be rebuilt on the Temple Mount even should Israel enlarge the area in order to guarantee there will be no damage or lessening of the appearance of any existing structure by building at a respectable distance. This is not what the forces led by Mahmoud Abbas desire; they demand a Temple Mount eventually free of all structures not Islamic in their intention which means that the churches on the Temple Mount are also endangered by these demands. Today it is Jews may not pray and already they enforce against Christian prayer and have demanded that any Prayers given in the churches on the Temple Mount must take care so as not to be heard beyond their doors and they are not permitted by order of the Waqf not to ring their chimes, their bells which have been silent for far too long. This rioting is the front lines of a terror war and Abbas threats of another intifada is no threat as the third intifada began over a year ago and has been ramped up slowly bringing the water to a boil while the unfortunate frog keeps being told by the rest of the animals watching that it is not that hot, just stay the course. That course will include butter with the frog legs and a nice parfait for desert. Can we get you fries with your meal?

Palestinian Announcement After Abbas and Hollande Meet

French President Francois Hollande and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met in Ramallah where they were reported to have had a frank and honest conversation. President Hollande presented the position that if the Palestinians were serious about establishing an independent state they would need to make at least one single concession and give up their demand for the “Right of Return” forcing Israel to accept numbers of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, some descendants being of the fourth generation of the original refugee, of approximately five million changing Israel into an additional Arab State. Palestinian Authority President Abbas said nothing in response during their meeting. French President Hollande had previously met with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and subsequent to his meeting in Ramallah gave a joint speech appearance with Netanyahu before the Israel Knesset. During these appearances and conversations President Hollande also advised the Israeli leadership that they need to completely stop any planned, present or future, construction in what he referred to as the West Bank, historically known as Judea and Samaria from Biblical times and after until the areas came under internationally rejected Jordanian occupation after the 1948-9 wars where over a half dozen Arab nations and militias attempted to obliterate the nascent Jewish State immediately after its birth. President Hollande’s supposedly friendly advisory is just one of a long litany of demands and conditions made by virtually every government in friendly suggestions and lists which Israel need enact if they are truly desirous of a real peace.

 

The most interesting item is that all of these well-wishers who regularly advise Israel what steps and sacrifices are required of them so as to reach a true and lasting peace with the Palestinians seldom if ever make a similarly lengthy list of actions that the Palestinians need commit to in order to forge a true and lasting peace with Israel. French President Hollande should be lauded for actually having the honesty to ask that the Palestinians make any gesture by withdrawing their demand for “Right of Return” in order to meet Israel somewhere closer to the middle but still far from the middle. Truth be told, for the Palestinians to come even remotely close to making equal and as significant of concessions to even be considered comparable to the long litany of concessions given by the Israelis that started with the Oslo Accords and continuing seemingly in an unending stream over the twenty-plus years since that accord, the Palestinians would need to surrender many of their most dearly held demands. There is no real need to go into the concessions made by Israel as those who would approach the Arab-Israeli peace talks spanning almost fifty years since the Six Day War already are familiar with many, maybe even most, of these concessions and those who blame Israel for every apparent failure for peace will never believe anything presented in defense of Israel. Just to whet anyone who is interested here is a short list of concessions made by Israel to the Palestinians; the over one-hundred terrorists including many convicted of multiple murders just to facilitate the present negotiations, the Oslo Accords themselves allowing for arch terrorist Yasser Arafat to return and be given a pass for all his previous ties to terror and grant him a diplomatic position and a semiautonomous region to control, a ten month building freeze in Judea and Samaria which became a new Mahmoud Abbas demanded precondition after it was suggested it be imposed on the Israelis by United States President Obama early in his first term, Israel has armed and provided ammunition for the Palestinian Security Forces, and perhaps the most significant, troubling and damnable concessions of them all which was the disengagement from Gaza which led directly to the coup by Hamas over the Palestinian Authority which has resulted in tens of thousands of rockets and mortars launched onto Israeli towns, cities, kibbutzim, farms with the intent of murdering innocent civilians and not for any military or tactical purpose.

 

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said during the joint press conference Monday with French President Francois Hollande that the fate of five million Arab refugees, according to Palestinian provided numbers, must be resolved if a peace treaty is to be achieved with Israel. That must come in addition to the establishment of a PA state in all of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem. This demand has been codified into law by the Palestinian Authority Parliament in 2008 which states, “Right of Return of Palestinian refugees to their homes and property, along with compensation for their suffering, is a holy cornerstone of their rights that cannot be negotiated away. There will be no consideration of negotiation on this issue, nor will there be a referendum on it.” An additional law passed by the Palestinian Authority Parliament states, “It is forbidden for Palestinian refugees to leave their current domicile as a solution for the ‘right of return.’ Anyone who acts against this law will be seen as a traitor, and will be subject to the penalties that this crime entails.” The penalty demanded for any Palestinian convicted as a traitor is death, often by hanging in a public square before cheering crowds, and the term traitor with its death punishment is also the result of any conviction for a Palestinian who has sold land to a Jew. Yet the world lines up to take to the public platforms before the press or anybody else they can find to listen to demand that Israel make concessions and stop finding ways to prevent a lasting peace which, according to these sources is the Palestinians dearest desire. Why, one must wonder, does nobody demand that the Palestinians at least make a singular gesture to prove their honest desire for peace. Why not simply request that the Palestinians take actions to end the throwing of rocks the size of bowling balls at Israeli motorists which has claimed numerous lives including infants under three years of age, and that is infants plural, and then judge them by their success or lack of honest effort. Why not tell them that the so-called Two State Solution calls for a Palestinian State called Palestine and a Jewish State called Israel, not two Palestinian States under any name, and then watch as Abbas once more trots out the “Right of Return” demanding that Israel surrender and become an additional Palestinian Arab State and the end of the Jewish Homeland. Where are the rest of the politicians willing to make equal and even demands for both sides and not just blame Israel and Jews for every ill perceived in the world?

The negotiation of the terms for President Obama to surrender the credibility and honor of the United States on the world stage while giving control over the Middle East over to Iran hit a few snags that likely nobody from the White House expected thus never saw coming. President Obama knew he had legitimacy problems concerning his supposed Iran policy, so he had delegated misleading Saudi Arabian and Israeli leadership to John Kerry who did his master’s bidding in grand style. He informed the Saudis that the American deal with Iran would only release some minor funds frozen by the sanctions. That was a mild rebuke compared to what Secretary of State Kerry unloaded on Prime Minister Netanyahu and the entirety of the Israeli people when Secretary Kerry not only gave the same song and dance about the deal with Iran as he told the Saudis but there was far more damage to be done. Kerry publically instructed, schooled one might say, Prime Minister Netanyahu that Israel had, for its own good, find and do whatever was required to make a peace and establish the Palestinian State. He further told all that much of what Jews and Israelis believe is their ancestral homelands does not belong to them and if the Israeli government failed at this task they and the Israeli people should expect a third intifada and for the whole of the world to turn their backs on Israel. The reason for this was that Israelis have become too wealthy to know what is good for them and that if his instructions went unheeded then the Europeans would take their wealth from them. Where the choice of words used by the erudite secretary Kerry may have been different, this was the gist of his threats.

 

On a different slant but in the same arena, the leader who saved the world from surrendering to Iran and giving them their blessings through the P5+1 negotiations to continue their nuclear pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and an inevitable war using those same said nuclear weapons was French President Francois Hollande who vetoed the entire agreement which had been crafted mostly by Iran and agreed upon by Secretary Kerry and European Union Foreign Policy Chief the Lady Catherine Ashton. For all intents and purposes and as far as we here at BTC are concerned, the new leadership of the free world now rests with French President Hollande with strong backing and voice of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. It remains to be seen whether any other leaders will take a principled stand against the treachery and perfidy of the Obama-Kerry foreign policy which appears to be in the final stages of dismantling every single agreement, friendship, obligation or honorable stand which the United States had proudly stood for until President Obama came and has made and will continue to make good on his promise to fundamentally transform the United States. He has taken a once proud, dependable and honorable nation and dragged it through the mud of disgrace kicking it into the gutter among the other nations who are known for their contempt of truth, decency, respect of allies, actions in the interest of justice and keeping one’s word as a treasured and delicate promise. Whether the United States will be able to pull herself back up and onto the path she had trod since her birth will remain to be seen. The deficit she will trudge on carrying as a ball and chain is the now known truth that any election for President of the United States is capable of placing another disgrace in the White House who will treat the honor of the nation they have been elected to lead as a casual and trivial matter to be discarded and shredded at one’s own whim and without regard for the aftereffects such will have on the nation and her people. 

 

We had predicted that even knowing of the disaster that Obamacare could become that the real subject of the last Presidential election was foreign policy. No matter the ramifications and fallout from Obamacare, that can be rectified and does not poison the name of the United States. No matter the economic upheaval which awaits the dollar as soon as interest rates rise even the slightest, that too can be overcome though doing so will cause pain and distress. The damage to the United States’ good name and the trust gained through years of honorable relations and promises and treaties kept will not be regained anywhere near as quickly as any of the other difficulties that will face the United States when the full ramifications of having a President Obama will have caused. The truly sad truth is that with Obamacare and the economic damage done by President Obama the United States bears the brunt of the pain but the disastrous destruction of the United States reputation and trustworthiness on the world stage will allow for damages which will reach far beyond the borders of the United States and may lead to catastrophes which could result in millions of people outside of the United States paying the ultimate price in a world with no United States as a trusted friend and feared enemy. Thanks to the treachery in Geneva and future treachery which is about to reconvene in the near future, the United States has dishonored her commitments and thrown her friends under the ever growing bus where President Obama tosses anything for which he has no use or liking. It is a shame that the United States is included on that list. The question sitting now before the Congress is whether they see the need to take over the controls in determining foreign policy by passing legislation rectifying the treacheries committed by President Obama and then overriding his veto stating to the world that even the President of the United States is not all-powerful and even his extravagances can be restrained by a responsible Congress. Will Congress act or will they shrink before such a daunting but necessary challenge?
